Does Cher have the ballroom cred to judge ‘Dancing With the Stars’?

21 minutes ago Cher’s an Oscar, Golden Globe, Emmy and Grammy winner (not to mention “a scamp, a camp and a bit of a tramp”), but despite the fact that she’s set to serve as a guest judge on “Dancing With the Stars” next week, she’s no ballroom expert. So, is she really qualified to stand in while head judge Len Goodman sits out another week? The dance pros and celebrities who’ll be performing for her think so. “I think she’ll judge character, flair, and performance skills,” pro Peta Murgatroyd told TODAY. “She’ll look at the performance and at the celebrity. It’s great that she’s coming here.” “We’re thrilled to have her,” added Brant Daugherty, ... Read More »

Britney Spears’ music used to drive away Somali pirates

Music 1 hour ago She’s sold close to 100 million albums worldwide, but it seems Britney Spears can’t count Somali pirates among her many fans. In fact, her tunes are being used to turn the tide on high-seas crimes. Merchant naval officer Rachel Owens recently spoke to Metro and revealed that a “blast of Britney” is all it takes to send the pirates packing. “Her songs were chosen by the security team because they thought the pirates would hate them most,” Owens said. The “Toxic” singer can take heart though — it’s nothing personal. “These guys can’t stand western culture or music, making Britney’s hits perfect,” Owens explained. “It’s so ... Read More »

‘Jimmy Kimmel’ skit sparks protest after child suggests ‘kill everyone in China’

TV 2 hours ago Jimmy Kimmel loves working with children because he never knows just what they’re going to say. Unfortunately, in a recent “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” skit, a child’s suggestion to “kill everyone in China” to settle U.S. debt has led to an uproar. The Oct. 16 “Kids Table” sketch showed a well-dressed panel of children talking about the government and how to spell “Barack Obama.” At one point, Kimmel asked the children how the U.S. should pay China back what it owes ($1.3 trillion). Little Braxton cut right to the chase. Giggling and falling over on the table, he said, “Kill everyone in China!”  Later on, when Kimmel ... Read More »

Channing Tatum developing reality show

(EW.com) — The next step after exposing the world of male strip clubs? Descending into a bordello-themed New Orleans nightclub, naturally.

What made you think darkening your skin for your Halloween costume as Crazy Eyes from prison drama “Orange Is the New Black” was a good idea? The actress/dancer quickly apologized, but here are some other stars with questionable actions: Remember when Singer Michael Jackson held his 8-month-old son Prince Michael II, aka Blanket, over the balcony of the Adlon Hotel in Berlin, Germany, in 2002? That didn’t go over well. That little move in 2004 during Super Bowl XXXVIII where Justin Timberlake tore off a piece of Janet Jackson’s outfit did not go over well with the world or the ...

50 Cent to plead guilty to vandalism

Los Angeles (CNN) — Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson pleaded “no contest” to kicking in his ex-girlfriend’s bedroom door, but a domestic violence charge against the rapper was dropped Monday.
