Anne Hathaway Gifts Paparazzi With A Bag Of Dog Poop!!!

This is all sorts of amazing!!

Oscar winner Anne Hathaway had seemingly had enough of the paparazzo that was following her when she was out for a stroll with her dog Esmeralda.

On December 26th, Anne cleaned up after her pooch and then proceeded to leave the little baggy on top of the cameraman's windshield!!!



Absolute GOLD.

What do you guys think? Hilarious or not??

Beyonce Recorded HOW MANY Songs For New Album!?

Uh, seriously?

Following her surprising, AMAZING new self-titled album, Beyonce has revealed that there was quite a bit to choose from for the final piece.

Bey revealed that she had recorded a whopping 80 tracks, and even included ones that she recorded well over a year ago.

"When I started picking the songs that I gravitated towards, because I recorded about 80 songs, it was the songs that were more effortless for me that stuck around that I still love that I loved a year ago when I recorded them,"

I'm sorry, but 80 SONGS!?

I want to hear the rest. 

Like, right now.

NOW.

Release more!!!!!

PopGoesTheArts Presents Year End Countdown: Remembering 2013

It really has been a whirlwind year in the world of pop culture!

Between breakout stars, a record breaking television program, and one infamous twerking pop star, 2013 has been a year to remember.

While there have been MANY moments to chat about, yours truly is looking back at the moments everyone could possibly be talking about for years to come.

Ready to reminisce with me?

The Breakout Of Jennifer Lawrence

Who else had the year that Jennifer Lawrence did? 

Between the first 2 "Hunger Games" films, an award winning role in "Silver Linings Playbook", her quirky lovable behavior and now NEW praise for her role in "American Hustle", it seems Hollywood really has found it's IT girl!

Shall we take a stroll down memory lane with JLaw??






All taken.....from ONE NIGHT.

I love this woman.

Miley Cyrus Leaves Her Mark

It's pretty safe to say that EVERYBODY was talking about Miley Cyrus this year. And it should really come as no surprise that I'm including her.…

YES!!!!!! Cheryl Cole ALMOST Confirmed To Return To UK "X Factor"!!!!!!!

Damn it:

I need ACTUAL confirmation!!!

Multiple UK outlets are jumping on a story currently, and it's gotten yours truly VERY excited.

According to reports, Simon Cowell is wanting to make a return to the UK panel for the 2014 version, and has stated he wants Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole beside him when that happens.

Simon and Cheryl had an infamous falling out 3 years ago, when she was bumped from the US version for Nicole Scherzinger.

Don't play with me reality TV.....

THIS. NEEDS. TO. HAPPEN.

What do you guys think???

Robin Roberts Comes Out!

You know, in a world where the media overexposes everything as much as they can, the way she did this was AMAZING!

"Good Morning America" anchor Robin Roberts came out today over her Facebook page, while recounting her struggles this past year. Robin battled cancer earlier this year.

She said:

"I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together."

I love this woman. Saying it so nonchalantly and not making a big deal about it?

Incredible!




COMING SOON: PopGoesTheArts FINAL Year End Countdown!! 2013 IN REVIEW!!

Stay tuned everyone!!

Tomorrow, I'll be putting the finishing touches on my FINAL year end countdown, which means you're all going to get it.....

MONDAY DECEMBER 30TH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What could I possibly be including now??


Check Out These Photos From The Kick Off Of Britney Spears' Las Vegas Residency!!!!

She looked AMAZING!!!

Last night, Miss Britney Spears took center stage at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas and delivered her debut performance as part of her "Piece of Me" residency.

The Pop Queen looked INCREDIBLE in a number of outfits, and also gave the fans some killer performances.

The setlist was full of the classic hits, from "Toxic" all the way back to where it all started "....Baby One More Time".

She also managed to pull Mario Lopez up on stage with her!!


Check out some more photos below!






So Who Exactly IS Miley's New Man: Kellan Lutz OR Cheyne Thomas???

Interesting turn of events.

After Miley Cyrus was spotted exiting a private jet alongside actor Kellan Lutz a little while back, many assumed the duo were a brand new couple.

That rumor intensified when they were spotted TOGETHER at an after party for the Britney Spears "Piece of Me" Vegas show last night.


Well, then Cheyne happened.

Miley was photographed (top) with her assistant Cheyne Thomas and was looking VERY comfortable with him!!!

So who do you guys think is hotter?

Cheyne or Kellan?

Kellan right!?



Report: Selena Gomez Battling Lupus

Oh no.....

Selena Gomez made headlines recently when she announced she had to cancel the Asian and Australian leg of her "Stars Dance" tour, and now we have an idea why.

The current report is that she is battling Lupus, which is an autoimmune disease, and that she was actually diagnosed a few years back. There is word going around that her symptoms flared up recently.

The symptoms include facial swelling, extreme fatigue and joint pain.

A rep for Gomez only said "no comment".

Whatever the reason may be, I hope she is okay and taking care of herself.

That Didn't Last Long: A&E Lifts Phil Robertson Suspension

And this will get everyone talking again.

The suspension of "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson led many to cry "what about freedom of speech", and it seems the backlash has helped:

The suspension has been lifted.

A&E is now in close contact with reps for GLAAD, and other organizations to help the transition for Phil to reappear on screen. Filming will begin this coming spring.

No word yet on how it will impact the series upon the return. There are reports saying they plan on using what happened in the following episodes to make amends for it.

Thoughts??

Britney Spears Shows Off Her BANGIN' BODY During "Piece Of Me" Dress Rehearsal!!

Ugh, I wish I was there tonight....

Last night, Britney Spears ran through the final dress rehearsal for her brand new Vegas show "Piece of Me". The last stop before the big debut tonight was for friends, family and some lucky insiders!

In the above photo, Brit is looking hotter than ever!!

Early reviews are trickling in, and most are saying Brit's dancing is back in top shape!!!

I will see this before it ends.....

I will see this before it ends...............

Girl looks GREAT!!

Dear Prince Harry

I'm saving my "SHAVE THAT THING OFF YOUR FACE" rant for someone else....

So please....

DO NOT SHAVE THAT THING OFF YOUR FACE!!!!!

Seriously....

How HOT does he look!? At least one member of the royal family can rock a beard!!

BRAND NEW: Lea Michele Releases "Battlefield"

THOSE. VOCALS.

"Glee" star Lea Michele got everyone talking when she released her debut single "Cannonball", but now she's done it again with a song she exclusively released to JustJared.

Titled "Battlefield", this is Lea more stripped down and showing off those powerful pipes!!

Check it out:

Lea Michele - Battlefield

I can't even DEAL with how amazing she sounds!!!!

Lea's debut album "Louder" will be available March 4th.

What do you guys think?

Celebrity Feud Alert: Jennifer Lawrence Vs Joan Rivers

The claws are out!!

Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence has been called out by "Fashion Police" host Joan Rivers, and I'm pretty sure most are going to side with Jenny,

Back in November, Lawrence made comments about the E! network show saying that shows like FP"tell young people to judge others based on "all the wrong values and that it's OK to point at people and call them ugly or fat."

Rivers reacted to Jennifer's comments by calling her "arrogant" and a "hypocrite", because Jennifer had said nothing about the show when she was making lists on the show during her awards run. It only happened when she wasn't. 

Jennifer never truly responded to Joan's tweets, but recently made another remark when she sat down with Barbara Walters, and said "it should be illegal to call someone fat on TV".

And AGAIN, Joan wasn't having it:

“I love that she’s telling everyone how wrong it is to worry about retouching and body image, …

Jennifer Aniston BALD!?!? Not So Fast......

Okay, time to admit something.....

I MAY have had a mini freak out when I first saw the above photo. It was VERY convincing!!

The internet world was set ablaze the other night when a photo of Jennifer Aniston went viral of the actress at an event showing off a very shocking buzzed look.

It didn't take long for fans to call it out on being suspicious, and it was finally confirmed to be a fake photo. The ACTUAL photo can be seen below.



That's some damn good Photoshop there!!!






BRAND NEW: Miley Cyrus Debuts "Adore You" Music Video

Are we all as shocked as the "Wrecking Ball" video?

Yeah....

Pretty much.

Miley Cyrus' new video "Adore You" has leaked, and it's.....um....interesting.

And sexual. Who else didn't want Miley masturbating as a late Christmas gift?

Thoughts??

Miley Cyrus - Adore You


"Jersey Shore" Baby News: Jenni "JWoww" Expecting First Child!!!

BABY NEWS!!

"Jersey Shore" star JWoww has announced she and fiance Roger Matthews are expecting their first child together!!

She posted on her official website today:

 “Roger and I couldn’t have asked for a better Christmas gift this year! We wanted to share this exciting news with you all first because you have been a part of our lives these part few years and seen the love between Roger and I develop and blossom.”

Congrats to the happy couple!!!

Publicity Stunt Alert: Justin Bieber Formally Announces "Retirement"

Yawn.

Justin Bieber took to his Twitter account a short while ago, and announced his "official" retirement for all of his fans to read.

Justin also has a brand new documentary coming out TOMORROW.

No.....this isn't a publicity stunt at all.....

He also just tweeted:

The media talks a lot about me.They make a up a lot of lies and want me to fail but I'm never leaving you, being a belieber is a lifestyle.

LAME.

Merry Christmas From PopGoesTheArts

2013 saw some record-breaking numbers for the website, and I'm THRILLED to celebrate Christmas with ALL of you!!!

Mariah Carey Can't Say Anything Nice About Eminem!!! WATCH HER RESPONSE HERE!!

DIVA.

You want any more reason to love this woman?

Legendary diva Mariah Carey stopped by "Watch What Happens Live" and sat down with host Andy Cohen. During the interview, aad during the amazing "Plead the Fifth" segment, Andy got down to one burning question:

Say 3 nice things about rapper Eminem.

Now, keep in mind the 2 have been rumored (and sometime confirmed) to be feuding and Mariah's response was THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF SHADE!!

Check it out below, and skip forward to 16:38 for the juicy bit.

Watch What Happens LIVE

I freaking love this woman.

What did you guys think of her response?

Amanda Bynes Is Looking GOOD!!!!

Girl looks healthy, and fabulous!!!

Keep in mind, that's probably a wig, or extensions, but it's a VAST improvement over the ones she was wearing before everything happened.

Amanda Bynes was spotted out in LA the other day with her parents, and she was looking incredible.

Let's hope 2014 is a better year for Amanda than 2013 was.

Kate Winslet POPPED!! And Names Her Baby Boy......

Bear.

Yup.

Oscar winning actress Kate Winslet has welcomed a baby boy with husband Ned and named him Bear Winslet. Bear entered the world back on December 7th.

This is quite the unique name, but also somewhat strange that she's using Winslet and not Rocknroll (which is ACTUALLY Ned's last name....no joke)

What do you guys think of Bear Winslet??

Danity Kane REUNITES!!!!! Performs Killer Show In Los Angeles!!!

Oh how I've missed these girls!!

Now a quartet, Danity Kane reunited (minus D. Woods) and performed some of their biggest hits to a VERY excited crowd.

The girls reunited on stage at the House of Blues and also performed a cover of Miley's hit "Wrecking Ball" as well as a new track titled "All In A Day's Work"!!




DAMN! Beyonce Shows Off Killer Figure In Skintight Dress!!

Beyonce at her album release party.

Yeah.

STUNNING.

HILARIOUS!! Justin Timberlake Makes Jimmy Fallon Laugh During Saturday Night Live Sketch!!!

Okay, this may be one of the funniest sketches they've done in a VERY long time!!

Jimmy Fallon returned to his old stomping grounds last night, as he hosted Saturday Night Live. But he wasn't alone.

Jimmy was joined by god friend, singer/actor Justin Timberlake who always brings the laughs.

During a "Family Feud" sketch, Jimmy was playing "Big Bang Theory" character Sheldon Coopers while Justin did his best impersonation of.....

Jimmy himself.

And do you think Jimmy could keep a straight face?

NOPE!!

The Family Feud

HA!!! So good!!!!


WHAT!? Anna Paquin CUT From "X-Men: Days Of Future Past"!!!!

This is seriously LAME.

Ahead of it's May 2014 release, "X-Men: Days of Future Past" has made a pretty major change in the editing room:

Anna Paquin's character Rogue has been completely AXED from the film!!

Director Bryan Singer revealed that an early rescue sequence (filmed close to the start of production) that featured Rogue, Magneto (Ian McKellan), Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) and Professor (Patrick Stewart) has been left on the cutting room floor, which means our beloved Rogue will have her screen time drastically diminished.  It has been revealed also to have been the ONLY scene Rogue is seen in.

What do you fans think of this??






Year End Countdown: Top TV Moments 2013

Okay, so I'm cheating.

I tried.....I REALLY tried to make this a top 10 list, but I just couldn't. There were way too many moments this year that garnered attention, and I couldn't possibly have grouped them in numerical order.

HOWEVER, I am able to place one show (and it's many crazy moments it delivered this year) in the #1 slot.....

And that show is "Breaking Bad".

This list is done to include the shocking moments, the tears, and the stellar acting that had me screaming "EMMY!!!!" at my TV.

These are my picks. Not yours. So no complaining about what is included.

HA!

Keep in mind, this will obviously be LITTERED with spoilers.

You've been warned.

"Breaking Bad" Says Goodbye With Final 8 Episodes

Like I said above, there was never any doubt in my mind that "Breaking Bad"would kick off the countdown of TV moments of the year. No other program had me on the edge of my seat, screaming at my television, crying like a baby, and a…

Brittana Fans REJOICE: Naya Rivera Tweets After Filming Scenes With Heather Morris!!

YAY!!!

Okay, so I'm not the biggest Gleek anymore (or at all even), but this bit of news made me smile.

Today, "Glee" star Naya Rivera posted quite the exciting tweet on her Twitter:

Unexpected Glee shoot today before the holiday break. Scenes with heather!”

BRITTANA IS BACK!!!!

Okay, well they WILL be back on our screens when the 100th episode of "Glee" airs in March.

Who else is excited???

SOMEONE MAKE THIS HAPPEN: Ellen DeGeneres Wants To Be In "Bridesmaids" Sequel!!!!!

Ellen DeGeneres and Melissa McCarthy in the same movie!?

YES PLEASE!!

Well, that is if the movie actually HAPPENS.

Talk show queen, and all around funny lady Ellen is currently working with director Paul Feig (who directed the SMASH hit film) to promote the Academy Awards, and also lobby for a role in the non-existent sequel.

Who else wants to see this happen???

This Remix Of Britney Spears' "Perfume" Featuring Sia On Background Vocals Is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!

WHY WASN'T THIS THE OFFICIAL VERSION!?

A brand new remix of Britney Spears song "Perfume" has just gone viral, thanks to the STELLAR skills of Nick*.

It's crafted to perfection, and actually includes a new background and vocals by the writer of the track Sia....

Perfume Remix Featuring Sia

I can't stop listening to this.

AMAZING remix!!


Uh, Demi Lovato TOTALLY Dropped The F Bomb On "X Factor" Last Night!!!!

And I can completely understand why.

During last night's finale of "X Factor", all 4 judges were treated to funny montages mocking them in some way. But when it came to Demi Lovato's, the pop star wasn't laughing.

In the clip, Simon accuses Demi of drinking "annoying juice" when she constantly picks on him.

Harmless?

Well, normally it would be, except for the fact that Demi has made it public knowledge that she has struggled with alcohol over the years and is recently sober.

During the montage, Demi's reaction can still be seen....

And right near the end, you can watch her mouth the words "that was f*ckedup".



And she AIN'T HAPPY.

What do you guys think? Did "X Factor" go too far in mocking the recently announced leaving mentor? Or did Demi overreact??

Split? Ariana Grande Refers To Nathan Sykes As "Good Friend" During Radio Interview

This would be a bummer.

Pop star couple Ariana Grande and The Wanted singer Nathan Sykes have possibly split after they began dating back in September.

Ariana was in the middle of a radio interview with Florida's 93.3 when asked about her relationship. The 20 year old responded:

“You’re a little behind,”

 “We’re really good friends.”

Oh.

Glad to see they've remained friends!

Are you guys sad about their split (if it's legit)??


The Drama Continues: Phil Robertson's Family REFUSES To Film "Duck Dynasty" Without Him!!

Interesting.

Following Phil Robertson's homophobic remarks in the GQ interview, A&E made the decision to put him on an indefinite hiatus from the show.

Well, the rest of the family has released a statement, refusing to film their reality series without him!!

“As a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm. We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty,”

Okay, let's be real:

The show is a MASSIVE hit....so there is no way A&E will cancel or shelve it.....

So what next?

And Your 2013 "X Factor" Champion Is.......

ALEX AND SIERRA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No beating around the bush, I am SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!

After a stellar season with some exceptional talent, "X Factor" crowned couple Alex and Sierra as its 2013 champions!!

A wild night full of memorable performances and it all concluded with the adorable couple capturing the crowd!!

A valiant fight from Jeff Gutt and Carlito Olivero though.

UNTIL NEXT YEAR!!


Usher And Shakira Are BACK!!! New Promo For "The Voice" Season 6!!!!

Tessanne Chin may have JUST won season 5 of the hit NBC series, but we're already getting excited for the 6th installment!!

A brand new promo has been released for the show, which will see Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera depart once again. Have no fear though, because that just means that superstars Usher and Shakira are coming back!!

Check out the promo below:


I cannot WAIT for these two to come back....

But ain't NOBODY going to top what Christina gave us in the finale!!!!


DISGUSTING: Paul Walker Death Photos Being Shopped

You will NEVER find them here.

Photos of the late Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas taken minutes after the deadly crash that took their lives is currently being shopped on the internet.

As of right now, no website has purchased the photos, and yours truly is REALLY hoping it stays that way.

I hope whomever HAS the photos realizes what this could do to both families, and decides against it.

Absolutely disgusting.

The End Is Near: "How I Met Your Mother" Series Finale To Air In March

May sweeps?

What May sweeps!?

"How I Met Your Mother" is set to air its series finale March 31st 2014.

After FINALLY introducing the MOTHER, the show is all set to wrap everything up.

This is a peculiar jump for the network, as most series' take their final bow in May when every other program is either airing for the last time or the current season.

Are you guys sad "HIMYM" is ending sooner??
