Mormon Tabernacle Choir Member QUITS Ahead Of Trump Inauguration Performance

GOOD!!

While singers have been refusing to perform at Donald Trump's inauguration on January 20th, famed group Mormon Tabernacle Choir have stepped in to do so.

Although, they're now down a member.

Jan Chamberlin posted her resignation from the group in a Facebook post, in which she says the group will be "endorsing tyranny and fascism" and she's refusing to take part.

The choir is part of the Church of Latter Day Saints, and a spokesman for it, said that members are not being forced to take part. Eric Hawkins is saying anyone's involvement is "voluntary".

Read Jan's Facebook post below:

Bristol Palin SLAMS Elton John/Celine Dion: Calls Them "Sissies" For Not Performing At Trump's Inauguration

Maybe dear ol' Bristol needs to keep her mouth shut.

Seemingly longing for the days that she was relevant, Bristol Palin is back in the news, this time for slamming singers/celebrities for not performing for Donald Trump's inauguration.

Taking aim at Celine Dion and Elton John, Britol said in a blog post:

“Trump’s inauguration team sought out some of the world’s greatest musicians, but nearly all of them have refused for fear of backlash or to stand against him politically,”

“Isn’t it amazing how ‘not cool’ it is to be conservative in the public eye? Either Hollywood is that far off – or we have so many sissies we have in the spot light too scared to stand for what they believe in!”

You can read the entire blog post, which includes more celebrity names such as Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake and Aretha Franklin. 

Oh Bristol.....

Do shut up.

Absolutely HEARTBROKEN.

Leah Remini To Church Of Scientology: SUE ME!

Would anyone expect her to hold back now?

Not happening.

During a sit-down with Larry King, Leah Remini blasted the Church of Scientology once again, even calling them out to sue her if they feel the need to. Leah has been on the receiving end of much criticism from the Church ever since the premiere of her docu-series 'Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath'.

Larry first broached the subject with:

“The church calls your reality show ‘a scripted, rehearsed, acted and dramatized work of fiction featuring liars who have, for a profit, been telling differing versions of the same false tales of abuse for years, many reviewed and discredited in courts of law…They’re saying you [are] liars,” 

Well, Leah responded: 

“Then they should sue us. It’s as simple as that. They say this on every outlet they can. They have said that about every single person who’s spoken out, and not one lawsuit has been brought to anybody,” 

“This is not a group that is scared of a lawsuit. They’re a litigi…

Lena Dunham Issues Apology After Abortion Comment

This woman could write a damn book with just apologies.

Seriously.

Following her disgusting comment regarding abortion, Lena Dunham has issued an apology after coming under fire. The actress made the comment about "wishing she had had an abortion", while participating in a podcast with other women.

I'm not even sure this apology is enough:

I truly hope a distasteful joke on my part won’t diminish the amazing work of all the women who participated. My words were spoken from a sort of “delusional girl” persona I often inhabit, a girl who careens between wisdom and ignorance (that’s what my TV show is too) and it didn’t translate. That’s my fault. I would never, ever intentionally trivialize the emotional and physical challenges of terminating a pregnancy.”


REPORT: Celine Dion Turns Down Trump Inauguration Performance

Of course she did!!

HOLD UP: Are Drake & Jennifer Lopez Dating??

Not so fast.....??

According to new sources, Drake and Jennifer Lopez have been getting closer the past few weeks, but it may not be what we think.

Here's what we know:

Drake has visited JLo's Vegas show twice in the past while, but we're told it's simply because they're working on a music project together.

Now, this past Monday, Drake rented out West Hollywood hotspot Delilah for himself and roughly 20 people for a party. Jennifer was on hand as Drake's "guest".

Could it be......

What do you guys think?

Lena Dunham Faces Backlash After Saying She "Wishes She Had An Abortion"

Does this woman speak before opening her mouth?

'Girls' star Lena Dunham is once again facing harsh criticism, after her most recent reveal.

While speaking out on the stigma surrounding abortion, and her experiences with it, Lena said:

"I sort of jumped,"  "'I haven’t had an abortion,' I told her. I wanted to make it really clear to her that as much as I was going out and fighting for other women’s options, I myself had never had an abortion." "Even I, the woman who cares as much as anybody about a woman’s right to choose, felt it was important that people know I was unblemished in this department," she continued. "Now I can say that I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had."
Oh Lena.......

No.

Kim Kardasian and Kanye West stepped out together for the first time since her terrifying Paris ordeal, as well as Kanye's hospitalization.

Best Of 2016: 'RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars 2'

Through all of the darkness that was 2016, there was a light:

'RuPaul's Drag Race' returned for its 2nd season of All Stars, and while many had issues with the team focused 1st season, this one?

OH THIS ONE.

In the iconic words of Violet Chachki:

CAME. THROUGH.

With a stellar cast of queens including Alyssa Edwards, Katya, Detox, Ginger Minj, Roxxxy Andrews, Adore Delano, Coco Montrese and eventual winner Alaska, we also saw the rebirth of season 2 queen Tatianna. And, who can forget the return of season 4 villain Phi Phi O'Hara who revealed not much had changed.

What set the show apart from its previous outing especially was the big twist, which saw RuPaul name the two BEST queens of the week, with those two lipsyncing for their legacy. The winner would then decide which of the bottom queens would go home.

This result saw some EPIC performances, including the one below (which also resulted in our favorite reaction from the season):
