Whoa.

DGG 043022

Some bad news for you Russian fans.

Just days before the 21-year-old American singer was scheduled to perform at Russia’s St. Petersburg (September 21) and Moscow’s Olimpiisky Stadium September 25), she has no choice but to cancel the concerts after the country refused to grant her a visa.

As for why, it is reportedly rooted in her support for gay rights.

The Moscow Times reports:

Gomez failed to secure a Russian visa after the government tightened the visa regime for foreign musicians in response to Madonna‘s and Lady Gaga‘s decisions to openly support gays during their shows in Russia last year, the organizers told RIA Novosti.”

According to the outlet, Russian conservatives continue to ban the promotion of “nontraditional sexual relationships” to minors by actually filing lawsuits against international performers who support them.

*NSYNC To “Reenact Their Greatest Videos In A Medley” For MTV Video Music Awards Performance

Hollywood celebrity gossip reports that *NSYNC are going to “reenact their greatest videos in a medley” for their rumored MTV Video Music Awards performance this Sunday.

It’s really happening!

ARI 0010931

A day after they joined Twitter, we finally hear that *NSYNC will in fact be reuniting on stage-for the first time in 10 years-at tonight’s 2013 MTV Video Music Awards… and it’s going to make you feel very nostalgic!

According to a report by Us Weekly, the disbanded group will be performing their hits like “Bye Bye Bye” before Justin Timberlake accepts an award. A source reveals to the magazine:

“They will reenact some of their greatest videos in a medley. Then Justin will sing his new song ‘Take Back the Night’ and get his [Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award].”

The former members have refused to address the question directly, but Joey Fatone‘s father caved and confirmed the rumor. Joseph Fatone Sr. told Radar Online:

“They’re doing a performance. I think it’s exciting. I couldn’t even say why [Joey]’s doing it though. Why, at this point in his life. Now he’s his own man.”

He explains:

“It’s more to the face that MTV has made then all somewhat of stars, and also made Justin a star.”

So, will you be watching out for *NSYNC at tonight’s VMAs?

WENTWORTH MILLER: I Tried To Commit Suicide Several Times When I Was Young

In recent Hollywood news, WENTWORTH MILLER has admitted that he tried to commit suicide several times when he was young… due to the hardships of keeping his sexual orientation a secret.

CSH 015126

One month after officially coming out as a gay man to the public, the actor has once again opened up about his personal struggles with being gay, and how it led to him attempting to commit suicide on multiple occasions when he was a teenager.

Speaking at Saturday’s Human Rights Campaign Dinner in Seattle, Miller shared:

“The first time that I tried to kill myself, I was 15. I waited until my family went away for the weekend and I was alone in the house and I swallowed a bottle of pills.”

The “Prison Break” star continued:

“When someone asked me if that was a cry for help, I said no, because I told no one. You only cry for help if you believe there’s help to cry for. I wanted out.”

At the height of his fame as tattooed hottie Michael Scofield, Wentworth was constantly hounded by gay rumors, but he denied them. He also revealed that had “multiple opportunities to speak” out about his sexual orientation, but “chose not to.”

The actor explained:

“When I thought about the possibility of coming out and how that would impact me and the career I worked so hard for, I was filled with fear.”

It wasn’t until last month, of course, when he finally saw an opportunity to come out of the closet-it was after he received an invitation to the St. Petersburg Film Festival in Russia, which he declined due to the country’s strong anti-gay stance.

He shared:

“I thought, ‘Let me be to someone else what no one was to me.'”

No Doubt Pulls “Looking Hot” Music Video For Being Offensive To Native Americans (VIDEO)

No Doubt has just pulled their “Looking Hot” music video off their newest album for allegedly being offensive to Native Americans.

Too bad!

no doubt looking hot mv 460x460

After being album-less for more than a decade, No Doubt finally gave birth to another album titled “Push and Shove” last September 21 and they also released a music video for its third single, “Looking Hot.”

Unfortunately, the American rock band had to pull their latest video out-which featured two-time mom, Gwen Stefani, and her band mates with headdresses and teepees-on Saturday after it received criticisms for being offensive to Native Americans.

No Doubt stated on their official website:

“As a multi-racial band our foundation is built upon both diversity and consideration for other cultures. Our intention with our new video was never to offend, hurt or trivialize Native American people, their culture or their history.”

The band continued:

“Although we consulted with Native American friends and Native American studies experts at the University of California, we realize now that we have offended people. This is of great concern to us and we are removing the video immediately.”

They added;

“The music that inspired us when we started the band, and the community of friends, family, and fans that surrounds us was built upon respect, unity and inclusiveness. We sincerely apologize to the Native American community and anyone else offended by this video.”

Finally, they concluded:

“Being hurtful to anyone is simply not who we are.”

No, erm, doubt about that…

Let’s hope they come up with a replacement music video soon!

KARDASHIAN Sisters Threatened By Second Cosmetics Company For Allegedly Stealing Brand Name

The latest Hollywood news reports the KARDASHIAN sisters were threatened by a second cosmetics company for allegedly stealing their brand name for their new makeup line.

Yikes.

The Kardashian sisters-namely Kim, Kourtney and Khloe-now face two legal threats for naming their own soon-to-be-launched makeup line called Khroma Beauty.

First, a lux Beverly Hills makeup company named Chroma threatened to sue the reality stars for stealing their name and now, another cosmetics company called Kroma is following suit.

The thing is, the second one-Kroma without the “H”-claims they’ve already trademarked the name since January, this according to documents they filed to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

TMZ reports the Kroma (no “H”) people were “pissed” and has already sent a cease and desist letter to stop the Kardashians from using the name.

As for the Kardashians’ own attempt to trademark their Khroma Beauty name (with the “H”), the site also reports the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office “rejected” their request in September because it was “too similar” to Kroma (no “H”).

Kroma reportedly met with the Kardashians to settle the issue but did not come to an agreement so the former is reportedly “exploring its legal options.”

Stay tuned.

TAYLOR SWIFT’s New Album “Red’ Has Highest Sales Week Of Any Album Since 2002 (VIDEO)

According to the latest entertainment news, TAYLOR SWIFT‘s newest album “Red” has highest number of sales in a week as compared to any other album since 2002.

Atta girl!

JTM 062818

Taylor Swift has definitely made a new record with the release of “Red,” and we don’t mean an album!

The newly single singer-songwriter, who is infamous for writing songs about her exes, has reportedly reached the top spot in Billboard Top 200 and has had the highest number of albums sold in just 7 days with her latest album.

In short, no other album has sold as much as far back as a decade, when Eminem released his 2002 album, “The Eminem Show.” Both artists sold more than 1 million copies, with Taylor being short of just .114 million from the rapper’s sales.

After all, “Red’ sold as much as 465,000 electronic copies and reached the #1 spot on iTunes alone within 36 minutes of its release last October 22.

If that’s not enough excuse to grab a copy, we don’t know what is!

Check out Taylor performing her biggest single from “Red,” “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”:

He should… Especially if he’s getting that much for the endorsement!

“He is at home on doctor mandated rest and will return to work soon. He appreciates all of his fans for their support and love.”

LINDSAY LOHAN Physically Assaulted In Hotel Room

According to the latest Hollywood gossip, LINDSAY LOHAN claims she was physically assaulted in her own hotel room… by a man she met that same night at a club.

WHOA.

PFR 005916

The troubled redhead certainly isn’t a stranger to violent fights-especially after her turbulent relationship with former girlfriend Samantha Ronson-but we doubt she was prepared for a physical confrontation with a man… especially a man she hardly knew.

Early this morning, Lohan called the police to report that she had been physically attacked in her New York City hotel room by a man she met at the Chelsea hotspot 1 Oak the evening before.

The alleged assault occurred after LiLo, who brought the man back to her hotel room to party with her friends, got into an argument with him for taking pictures of her using his phone.

The verbal disagreement soon turned physical.

TMZ reports:

“…he threw her on the bed causing scratches on her hands. We’re told Lindsay ran out of the room, but returned later. When she did, Lohan claims the man attacked her, choked her, threw her to the ground, and climbed on top of her.”

When one of Lindsay‘s friends was finally able to pull the man off her, the actress pulled the fire alarm to signal for help and immediately alerted the cops.

LiLo‘s alleged attacker, who was identified as Christian LaBella, was eventually apprehended and charged with two misdemeanor counts of assault and two charges of harassment.
