HUGE NEWS: Obama Administration Will Support Gay Marriage In Front Of SUPREME COURT

HOLY CRAP.

According to NBC News and The New York Times, President Obama and his administration will be writing a friend-of-the-court brief today in support of same-sex marriage and allowing it to resume in the state of California.

Today was the final day to submit a brief, before the Court begins arguments in late March, to determine the fate of Prop 8.

This news also comes as a huge departure from last year, as the President revealed that while he supported gay marriage, he didn't feel it should be a matter for the federal government.

AMAZING news!!!!

I know I don't usually get political on PopGoesTheArts....

But I just HAD to chat about this!!!

Anastacia Cancels European Tour After Second Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Ugh....

Singer Anastacia knows all too well the battle against cancer. Almost 10 years ago, she was first diagnosed with breast cancer, but thankfully beat it.

Now, after releasing a new album late last year, the 44 year old singer has announced she has to cancel her upcoming tour, slated to have started April 6th, due to being diagnosed once again.

PopGoesTheArts sends thoughts and well wishes to her during this tough time.

No!! Julie Marie Berman OUT At "General Hospital"!!!

And here comes another crappy recast...

Two time Daytime Emmy winner Julie Marie Berman has been a main cast member of the soap opera "General Hospital" for 8 years and has brought life to the role of Lulu Spencer.

Unfortunately, the actress has decided to make a change, and is leaving the show.

Julie took to her Twitter yesterday to inform her fans, and also confirmed that she had already filmed her final scenes.


julie marie berman@MissJMBerman Hi everyone...yesterday was one of the hardest days of my life. It hurts to let go of Lulu. Thank u for letting me into ur homes & hearts. X
No word yet on if the show plans to recast the actress, but with Lulu pretty much on the front burner, it's safe to say a recast will happen.
Good luck in your future endeavors Julie!!!

Could Karma Be In Taylor Swift's Future? Singer Spotted Spending Time With Ed Sheeran!!!

Ooooooooh.

Ed Sheeran is one songwriter Taylor Swift should be afraid of, because if the 2 ever did date (and split) maybe she'd get her first dose of medicine in that department!!

The rumor mill is churning right now, with the possibility that friends Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran could be dating. According to "sources", the night before the 2013 Brit Awards (where Taylor stripped down for Harry Styles on stage) Ed was spotted heading into Taylor's hotel room, where he stayed until 4 AM.

Now, the 2 are hitting the road together shortly for Taylor's "Red" tour....so the meeting was probably all business.

There have been dating rumors between the 2 for years, with one source claiming they dated "briefly" but remained friends.

Seriously, could you imagine if they did date again and broke up? Ed could TOTALLY write a song about her...

Karma's a bitch isn't it?


Justin Bieber Looking Interesting In London

Well, that's one way to make a fashion statement.

Justin Bieber was spotted by the paparazzi on Wednesday rocking quite the outfit.

Wearing a neon yellow, studded hat, and ridiculous purple, leopard print pants, Justin didn't seem too happy by the flashing lights of the cameras.

Did he dress himself in the dark?!

What do you guys think??

American Idol Presents Sudden Death Part 2: 10 More Girls Perform

After last night, the Top 20 girls have been formed.....

But I'm not sure the judges made some of the best decisions!!

Here we go!

1. Melinda Ademi

I remember enjoying this girl A LOT more in Hollywood week. It appears her nerves somewhat got the best of her last night, and I'm just not really feeling her performance of Jessie J's "Nobody's Perfect". It wasn't awful, and she definitely has a vibe on stage, but something fell flat for me.



2. Candice Glover

This woman is not going ANYWHERE. Plain and simple, Candice could be a force this season if she continues on this path. Brilliant.



3. Juliana Chahayed

I'm not sure what was wrong with the judges, but this was BEAUTIFUL. Completely stripping Demi Lovato's song "Skyscraper" (even more) Juliana sounded almost angelic during her performance. Her breath, falsetto was stunning. The guitar work did make it a tad awkward and she did seem nervous, but this was incredible in my eyes.


4. Jett Her…

You Want Scary? THIS Is Scary: Check Out First Trailer For "The Conjuring"!!!

I didn't jump when I watched this.....

I didn't.

.....................

Oh whatever!!! You all will too!!!

In tradition of "Insidious" and "Mama", comes yet another terrifying movie, but this time called "The Conjuring" starring Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga and Lili Taylor.

Check out the trailer below:


SERIOUSLY!?

Chills.

And of course, it's based on actual events....

That doesn't make it scarier at all now does it?

Make sure to check out "The Conjuring" when it opens July 19th


Can They Make Room For Her? Will Halle Berry Return For "X-Men: Days Of Future Past"???

With the cast as big as it is.....

I'm not sure!!!

Director Bryan Singer is pulling out all the stops for his upcoming film "X-Men: Days Of Future Past". With the announcement that the stars of the 2000 hit "X-Men" (Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Ellen Page, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, and Patrick Stewart) would be returning alongside stars of the new franchise (Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Michael Fassbender, and James McAvoy) many were wondering if that was it.

What exactly does that mean for Storm aka Halle Berry??

Singer opened up saying:

It depends on how it works out," Singer said. "I loved working with Halle, so all I can say is we'll see what happens."

So, it's not a yes.....or a no.

Would you guys like to see Halle return as Storm??

Kristen Bell Looks Like She's Going To EXPLODE!!

Pregnancy suits Miss Bell!!!

Kristen Bell is getting close to her due date, and the VERY pregnant actress had no problem showing off her massive bump to friends while out and about in Los Angeles yesterday.

Kristen and husband Dax Shepard are expecting their first child this spring!

Looking GOOD Kristen!!


Perez Hilton Announces.....He's A Father!!!!

HOLY COW!!

Gossip blogger Perez Hilton shocked his readers and fans today, when he posted an intimate message to everyone on his website:

That he has recently welcomed a son!!!

The message read:

"Dear Friends,

I want you to hear this directly from me, right here.

I am ready to announce that earlier this month I was blessed with the birth of my first child, a beautiful and healthy baby boy - with lots of hair on his tiny head!

My Family is overjoyed at this newest and most cherished addition.

Thank YOU for welcoming PerezHilton.com into your homes, offices, classrooms, cell phones and where else you may read my five websites.

And thank you for welcoming ME into your lives!

I am so humbled to welcome this little man into my life. And I am honored and ready for the challenge of guiding him through his.

With love,

Perez

He posted the above photo with the message.

This certainly came out of left field, but all ANY of us should say is:

CONGRATS!!!

Stone Temple Pilots FIRE Scott Weiland!?!?

Uh, this doesn't really work!!!

How can you have STP with Scott Weiland!?

After the legendary rock band, Stone Temple Pilots, started back in 1996, the band has gone through tumultuous times.

It seems though, that those times have finally caught up with them.

The band released a statement today regarding lead singer (AND FOUNDER) Scott Weiland:

"Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland."
Pretty direct if you ask me!!

It didn't take long for Scott to respond:

"I learned of my supposed 'termination' from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press."
He added, "Not sure how I can be 'terminated' from a band that I founded, fronted, and co-wrote many of its biggest hits, but that’s something for the lawyers to figure out."

I have a feeling this is going to get NASTY.

The band formed in 1996, and reformed in 2008 after a 5 year hiatus. Scott is actually set to tour SOLO next month…

Seth MacFarlane To Return As Oscar Host? NOT HAPPENING!!

Damn!!

Well, just remember, Ricky Gervais said no to returning to the Globes, and he did it twice!!

After being ridiculed by some for his Oscar hosting gig, Seth MacFarlane has VOWED not to return as host again next year.

After being called out over Twitter if he would in fact return, the "Family Guy" creator was very simple in his explanation:



Seth MacFarlane RT  Would you host the again if asked? // No way. Lotta fun to have done it, though. February 26, 2013 8:15 am via Echofon He had admitted to the press in a pre-show interview, that he was exhausted and felt overworked. 
Well, we'll see if he'll actually be back.....because the producers of the show just might need him:

The telecast managed to bring in 40.3 million viewers, the highest in 3 YEARS.

Would YOU like to see Seth back next year? Or who else could host??

Your Smash Review: The Glorious SONG

You know THE SONG.

This season of "Smash" may currently be fighting for attention (the ratings are way down) but that doesn't mean yours truly isn't enjoying the HELL out of it!!

The NBC show has managed to completely revamp with a new cast, new direction AND a guest starring Oscar winner. The storyline is just so damn good right now, I'm finding it difficult to really critique the episode. I just wanna scream at how much I enjoyed this episode.

I'll give it a shot though.

Veronica (Jennifer Hudson) was determined to distance herself from her former self, by putting on a show that can show her fans she has grown up, and with Derek at the helm, she wasn't sure of its direction.

Guest star Sheryl Lee Ralph gave an AMAZING turn as Veronica's mother who clashed with Derek every step of the way. Derek wanted to bring in some new songs, to distance Ronnie from her old material, but the task proved daunting.

Enter Jimmy and Kyle.

The duo (seriously how CUTE…

Harry Styles GOES DOWN!! One Direction Member Takes A Flying Shoe To The Crotch!!

OUCH!!

The boys of One Direction performed in Scotland today, and they seemed to be having a blast until a fan threw a shoe on stage.

Well, it created a bit of a stir....

But the next one sure as hell got Harry's attention!!

Seconds later, another shoe came flying on stage.....directly into Harry's.....

You know.

Check out his painful reaction below!


Poor Harry....

Oh screw it:

HA!!!!

Anyone else find it hilarious when you see the security on camera? They probably searched all over for the culprit and kicked them out!!


NEED. DUET. NOW!!!!!

How GLORIOUS is that above photo!?

After they both sang their faces off at the Oscars, Adele and Barbra Streisand seemed to get along just great at an after party!!

The singers were photographed at the official Oscars after party, the Governors Ball, after Babs PERSONALLY asked that Adele be seated at her table.

Others that joined the iconic singer at her table included other singer of the night Shirley Bassey and John Travolta & Kelly Preston.

Rumors are currently running wild that Streisand is considering touring in 2014.

Hey, how about a JOINT tour with Adele!?

..............................

I just died a little.

COULD YOU IMAGINE!?

Okay, it won't happen.....but maybe a duet?

Remember Blake Lewis? He's Back With A Brand New Single!!!

Okay, so you probably have no idea who he is....

Unless you're an "American Idol" junkie like myself.

HA!!

Blake Lewis was the runner up on "American Idol" back in season 6 (which saw Jordin Sparks crowned the winner). After his debut album "A.D.D (Audio Day Dream)" failed to make an impact, and his 2009 sophomore album "Heartbreak on Vinyl" wasn't a commercial success (but major club hit) Blake seemingly disappeared.

Well, he is BACK with a vengeance with his brand new track!!

Blake has just recently signed with major label Republic Records, which houses Drake, Florence & The Machine, and has released the first single off of his upcoming new album.

Titled "Your Touch", the song is an sweet, electronic jam, with a GREAT chorus!! Not to mention the dubstep hints are a fabulous addition!

Check out "Your Touch" below!

The track will be available for download on iTunes March 14th.


Demi Lovato RETURNS With Brand New Single: Check Out "Heart Attack" HERE

Uh.....

The only word that comes to mind is:

Meh.

Demi Lovato is still leaving her status on "X Factor" up in the air, but she is ready to release her 4th studio album this spring. She has just released the first single titled "Heart Attack", and I'm a little let down.

After the STELLAR "Skyscraper" and "Give Your Heart a Break", this is lacking something.

Check out "Heart Attack" below:



I don't hate the song by any means, but I'm just not blown away. Her vocals are amazing as usual though.

What do you guys think??

The "Misery" actress is set to play alongside Jessica Lange as her on-screen best friend...who eventually turns into an enemy.

How AMAZING in this???

This will be a sort of reunion for the ladies, who worked together on the film "Bonneville" years ago.

In decent quality!!

HA!!

Sunday nights Oscars delivered on so many levels, but nothing was as epic as the cast of "Les Miserables" hitting the stage to perform some timeless songs.

Check out Hugh Jackman, Oscar winner Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit, Samantha Barks, Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter belting it out LIVE!!

A Country Star Is Born: "X Factor" Winner Tate Stevens Announces Album Release Date!!

FINALLY!!

While season 1 winner of "X Factor" Melanie Amarro still fumbles around with her debut album, season 2 champ Tate Stevens is ready to take a bite out of the country world.

37 year old Stevens will release his debut album, which will be self titled, April 23rd.

The lead single will reportedly be called "The Power of a Love Song".

Cannot WAIT to hear what Tate has in store for his fans!!

Jennifer Lawrence + Jack Nicholson = MAGIC!!!!

Want more reason to love Jennifer Lawrence??

After she stumbled her way up to the podium accepting her first (of many) Oscars last night, Jennifer Lawrence was about to have yet another memorable moment.

Being interviewed backstage by George Stephanopoulos of "Good Morning America", the Best Actress winner was caught off guard by a legend of the Academy:

Oscar winner Jack Nicholson!!

Check out their HILARIOUS interaction below:



Ugh....I ADORE Miss Lawrence!!


Hey "Teen Wolf" Fans: We Have A Premiere Date For Season 3!!!!!

Now, sure Colton Haynes (Jackson) will be gone....

But c'mon.....you know you still wanna watch!!!!

Smash hit MTV show "Teen Wolf" has finally announced its start date for the 3rd season, so we can all officially be excited:

JUNE 3RD!!!!!

U guys ready??

PS: I just need more Stiles in my life.....

Seriously!? Andy Dick Set To Join "Dancing With The Stars"?!

Um.....

Is anyone really sure this is a good idea???

I previously informed you all about the 4 first names that are pretty much confirmed for the 16th season of "Dancing with the Stars", but with the official announcement coming tomorrow morning, it seems we may have another name to add to the list:

Andy Dick

Yup. You read that right.

The celebrity rehab member and usual MESS has reportedly signed on for the season....

And I can't help but think this is an AWFUL idea. The actor may be trying to redeem himself in the eyes of the public after being in and out of rehab, arrested NUMEROUS times, and is known for being pretty unpredictable. Can you say LIVE SHOW?

What do you guys think???

Fashion Report Card: 2013 Oscars!!!!

IT'S HERE!!!

While I may not be privileged enough to sit and have a chat with Joan Rivers about all of the fashion at last nights Oscars, I'm still delivering my BIGGEST report card yet!!

I'll be looking at the BEST of the BEST.....and the WORST of the WORST!!

20 in total everyone: 10 each!!

Here we go, kicking it off with THE BEST DRESSED!!

10. Kristin Chenoweth



The Tony and Emmy winner (who also closed the show with host Seth MacFarlane) was one of the first to arrive on the red carpet, and boy did she set the bar high! Rocking a Tony Ward gown, I can't help but just LOVE this dress. The embellishment at the top is to die for, and it fits her tiny body perfectly. Perfection!!

9. Kelly Rowland



While she may have just been there as a red carpet correspondent, Miss Kelly KILLED on the red carpet. Pulling out her best Jolie leg, in her stunning Donna Karen Atelier dress. I'm thinking some may not like it, but the top was the best part for me. It was a different cut, a…

SURPRISE: Britney Spears Shows Off New 'Do At Elton John Oscar Party!!!

HOLY HOTNESS!!!!

Britney Spears made a rare public appearance last night when she arrived to Elton John's Oscar bash, and turned many heads with her new brown locks.

Looking good Brit!!!

Your Oscar Recap: The Moments (And Fall Of Jennifer Lawrence)

Last night may have run over, but it was one of the most memorable Oscar nights in recent memory. Between Seth MacFarlane's humor, to the chemistry between (most) of the presenters, the show definitely delivered quite the showstopper.

Make sure you check back to PopGoesTheArts later tonight for the COMPLETE fashion report card, but right now, we're going to look back at the moments that MADE the show!!

For a FULL list of winners, go HERE.

1. Ben Affleck's Moving Speech After Winning Best Picture For "Argo"

He may have been snubbed for Best Director, but Oscar sure as hell gave Benny a consolation prize:

Best Picture!!

Clearly a bag of nerves, watch Ben's sincere and touching speech below! And receiving it from The First Lady too!!!



2. Jenifer Lawrence Wins Best Actress.....And FALLS Heading To The Stage!!

God bless Hugh Jackman who was the ONLY one who came to her aid!!

Jennifer Lawrence captivated audiences in "Silver Linings Playbook"…

Kristin Chenoweth Starts The Red Carpet Off RIGHT!!!!

Okay.....the full fashion report card will come tomorrow....

But I couldn't resist!!!

Broadway diva and Tony & Emmy winner Kristin Chenoweth was the first to hit tonight's Oscar red carpet, and MY GOD did she make an entrance!!

Wearing a Tony Ward dress, I am going to state right now:

KRISTIN HAS NEVER LOOKED BETTER.

Let's hope all the ladies follow suit tonight, and REALLY impress me.

But you'll all have to wait until tomorrow to find out!!

PS: GIVE HER STYLIST A RAISE!!!!!!!!!!!

1. Former "American Idol" contestant and country singer Kellie Pickler

2. "Bachelor" star Sean Lowe

3. Olympic medal winning gymnast Aly Raisman

4. Country superstar Wynonna Judd

Well.....

Now, I am here to answer some burning questions about tonight's show.

1. Will Seth deliver??

Of course he will! This is the man responsible for the creation of Peter Griffin and Ted. He will bring the funny, the voices, and probably the controversy. This man will be REMEMBERED as host!!

2. Who will steal the fashion spotlight??

All eyes are going to be on the ladies as per usual, but can lead actress front runner Jennifer Lawrence steal the…

Kanye West Not A Fan Of "Suit & Tie"???

But his bestie Jay Z is featured!!

HA!!

The always eloquent Kanye West was performing last night in London, when he began a rant on his usual topics:

Corporations.....Grammys......and Justin Timberlake & Jay Z's new track "Suit & Tie"??

Watch below:


In case you didn't hear it:

"I got love for Hov (Jay Z) but I ain't f*cking with that Suit & Tie"

HA!!

Well, Kanye....I don't think EVERYONE loved it either.....

But are you maybe just a tad jealous that your boy Z is going out on tour this summer with HIS new bestie??
