Dustin Lance Black Calls Out Sam Smith After His Oscar Win


Last night, Sam Smith took home Best Original Song at the Oscars (for 'Spectre's 'Writing On The Wall'), but he made a mistake during his speech.

While maybe having good intentions, Sam incorrectly cited an article proclaiming he was the first openly gay man to win an Oscar (fact check? HE'S NOT), but did admit that he wasn't sure if it was true. He then went on to accept the award on behalf of the LGBT community.

It didn't take long for someone to clap back.....and that was Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black!!

Dustin, who won the Oscar in 2009 for Best Original Screenplay for 'Milk', tweeted:

Hey @SamSmithWorld, if you have no idea who I am, it may be time to stop texting my fiancĂ©. Here's a start: — Dustin Lance Black (@DLanceBlack) February 29, 2016

HOT New Couple Alert? Liam Payne And Cheryl Fernandez-Versini?!


Liam confirms they're dating!!!!!

Well, he pretty much did by changing his Instagram photo to the two of them together. And he's shirtless. 


New reports are beginning to circulate that One Direction member Liam Payne is dating 'X Factor' judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini!!

It's easier to just say Cheryl Cole.

According to reports, Liam and Cheyl began spending time together early February, as her marriage to Jean-Bernard began to publicly collapse.

In an image that Cheryl posted to her Instagram, she's seen in Barbados, and a man can be seen in the reflection of her sunglasses....but of course it's too hard to tell who it is.

Sources say?

It's Liam.

Now....what do we think Directioners?

Do we approve....if this is legit?

Jennifer Garner Gets EXTREMELY Candid On Ben Affleck And His Rumored Affair With Nanny

This woman is so strong to open up like this.

In a new interview with 'Vanity Fair', actress Jennifer Garner is opening up in a big way regarding her divorce from Ben Affleck and the rumors he cheated with their nanny.

Jen became very candid during the interview, saying:

On marrying Ben Affleck in 2005: “I didn’t marry the big fat movie star; I married him. And I would go back and remake that decision. I ran down the beach to him, and I would again. You can’t have these three babies and so much of what we had. He’s the love of my life. What am I going to do about that? He’s the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous. He’s just a complicated guy. I always say, ‘When his sun shines on you, you feel it.’ But when the sun is shining elsewhere, it’s cold. He can cast quite a shadow.”
On getting a divorce: “It was a real marriage. It wasn’t for the cameras. And it was a huge priority for me to stay in it. And that did not work.”
On having two failed…

'Fuller House' Throws HILARIOUS Shade At The Olsen Twins During Series Premiere

This was kind of genius.

'Fuller House' finally premiered onto Netflix today, to the joy of all us 90's kids.

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen!!

Cheryl Tiegs Says It's 'Unhealthy' To Have Plus Size Model On Cover Of 'Sports Ilustrated'

Cheryl can take SEVERAL seats.

Former supermodel Cheryl Tiegs is feeling the backlash right now, after she made comments about 'Sports Illustrated' putting plus size model Ashley Graham on their recent cover.

Ashley made history with her recent cover, being the first size 16 (plus size) model to grace the cover in its history.

When asked by E! News if she was happy to see a plus size model on the cover, Tiegs said:

Actually I don’t like it that we’re talking about full-figured women because it’s glamorizing them, and your waist should be smaller than 35 [inches]. That’s what Dr. Oz said, I’m sticking to it. No I don’t think it’s healthy. Her face is beautiful, beautiful but I don’t think it’s healthy in the long run.

Ashley has yet to respond to Tiegs' comment, but.....

Who really cares what Cheryl thinks. 


Charlie Puth Addresses Kesha/Dr. Luke Legal Battle

Oh Charlie....

This may come back to bite you in the ass.

Charlie Puth attended a pre-Oscars bash in Hollywood the other night, and of course the talk right now in the music industry is Kesha/Dr. Luke. So, when the topic was broached, Charlie took an interesting approach with his answer.

The 'One Call Away' singer says that there are 'no winners' in this case, and calls Dr. Luke his 'production idol', among other things. Check it out below:

Elton John SLAMS Janet Jackson In New Interview

Cranky old queen isn't he?

Putting his classic line 'the bitch is back' to good use, Elton John is blasting Janet Jackson in a new interview, and as per usual, he doesn't hold back.

In the newest issue of ROLLING STONE, Elton gave his opinion on Janet receiving rave reviews for her recent 'Unbreakable' tour:

"You know, f--king music magazines writing a review of Janet Jackson saying, 'This is the greatest show—four and a half stars.' It's f--king lip-synced! Hello! That's not a show!" 

"I'd rather go and see a drag queen. F--k off."

Tell us how you REALLY feel Sir!!

What do you guys think of Elton's comments?

Sony Speaks Out: Says They Would Terminate Kesha's Contract With Dr. Luke If They Could

The story just got more complicated. 

Even from support from the their biggest artists (Lady Gaga and Adele), Sony has now spoken out saying they are unable to release Kesha from her contract. 
In a statement to the New York Times, attorneys for the label said:
“Sony has made it possible for Kesha to record without any connection, involvement or interaction with Luke whatsoever, but Sony is not in a position to terminate the contractual relationship between Luke and Kesha,”
“Sony is doing everything it can to support the artist in these circumstances, but is legally unable to terminate the contract to which it is not a party.”
For those of you who may not know, Kesha is signed to a subsidiary of Sony, Kemosabe Records which is is Dr. Luke's label. Now, all of that aside, Kesha's lawsuit against Luke also takes Sony to task. She's claiming they turned a blind eye to his alleged abuse of the singer. 
So, Sony SOMEWHAT through support out for Kesha...but remaining adamant there i…

NEW Zayn: 'It's You'

Second single? Buzz track?

Zayn surprised everyone when he appeared on 'Fallon Tonight' last week, by performing a brand new song instead of his #1 single 'Pillow Talk'.

Instead, Zayn went with the ballad 'It's You', and no shock here, the vocal was killer, and the song is fantastic.

The former One Direction member has now dropped the studio version of the track on Zane Lowe's Beats1 Radio show.

Zayn drops his highly anticipated debut album 'Mind of Mine' March 25th.

Vice President Joe Biden To Introduce Lady Gaga At The Oscars

Talk about being a BIG DEAL!!

In just announced news, Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden will be introducing Lady Gaga at Sunday's Oscars ceremony.

Gaga is set to perform her's and Diane Warren's nominated song 'Till It Happens To You'.

Biden has long been an advocate for stopping sexual assaults on college campuses and raising awareness on the matter. He played a major role in drafting the Violence Against Women Act Of 1994, a section of the Violent Crime Control And Law Enforcement Act Of 1994 that was signed into law by then-President Bill Clinton.

The song is from the 2015 documentary 'The Hunting Ground', which focuses on rape at college campuses. 

Gaga is also no stranger to the Oscars stage, as she stole the show last year with her 'Sound of Music' tribute.

Louis Tomlinson Seen Out With Zayn's Ex, Little Mix Member Perrie Edwards CODE.

Now, let's keep in mind that Louis is still reportedly with actress Danielle Campbell.....and the other members of Little Mix were there as well.
