Jamie Lynn Spears Defends Friend In Wild Brawl: Pulls KNIFE On Attackers!!!

This is some straight out of the movies stuff right here folks!!

Little sister to Britney, Jamie Lynn Spears found herself in some trouble this weekend when her and a girlfriend stopped for a late night bite at a local Pita Pit in Louisiana.

Now this is when the story gets crazy.

According to sources, the two ladies were being harassed by a group and one of them clocked Jamie Lynn's friend in the head with a bottle. Jamie then went into protector mode, dragging her friend behind the sandwich counter and grabbing a huge knife. She then began waving, keeping the attacker away.

The plan worked.

The attacker backed off, but when cops arrived, Jamie Lynn's friend refused to press charges, so nobody was arrested.

The above picture was one JL posted before the attack happened. No word if the other woman in the picture is the friend who was attacked.

Talk about crazy. What was supposed to be a trip to get some food ended up like THAT.

Did One Direction Member Niall Horan Announce He's LEAVING The Band!? NOT SO FAST......

Hold up!!!

Earlier today, Twitter was sent into panic as One Direction fans began freaking out at the possibility that member Niall Horan was leaving the band.

Fortunately, a rep for the band confirmed their Twitter account was hacked and that there "is absolutely no truth to this rumor".

Everybody can breathe a sigh of relief!!!

It will be Zayn.

Just kidding Directioners.....don't come for me.

Christina Aguilera To Mickey Mouse: "You're An A**hole"!!!

WHAT!?

So much for The Happiest Place on Earth!!!

According to a new report, Christina Aguilera didn't have the 34th birthday celebration she wanted, as the pop diva spent it at Disneyland. When she and a group of friends approached a Mickey Mouse, they were informed Mickey was about to head on a break.

Cue tantrum.

Aguilera reportedly went OFF and began swearing at the famous mouse, calling the employee an "a**hole" and even dropping the infamous line:

"Do you know who I am?"

Aguilera's entire team allegedly began issuing threats while this was happening, and security was called. By the time they arrived, Xtina and her crew had split.

Being a former Musketeer, you'd think Christina would have a little bit more Disney spirit......

Thoughts??

Ginger Spice Did It FIRST: Geri Halliwell Wore Jennifer Lopez's Iconic Grammy Dress ONE MONTH Earlier!!!

MIND. BLOWN.

It was February 23rd, 2000 and the world was STUNNED when Jennifer Lopez walked the red carpet at the Grammy's in that plunging Versace gown.

Nobody could believe that a star would take such a risk in a dress like that.....

Any nobody also seemed to notice that Spice Girl Geri Halliwell rocked the exact same dress one month earlier to a Cannes event!!!




So, now we beg to ask the question:

WHO ROCKED IT BEST??

Chris Rock & Wife SPLIT After 19 Years

So sad, happening right around the holidays.

After 19 years of marriage, Chris Rock and Malaak Compton-Rock have ended their relationship. Speaking to PEOPLE magazine in an official statement, Malaak said:

After much contemplation and 19 years of marriage, Chris and I have decided to go our separate ways,”


“Being fortunate enough to lead a life of service by working with those most vulnerable makes me well aware of life’s blessings, even when faced with difficulties.”

“While recognizing that this is a significant change, my children remain at the center of my life and their well-being is my top priority. It is in this spirit that I sincerely ask that their privacy and the privacy of our family be respected during this transition in our lives.”
The couple have 2 daughters together: 
Lola 12, and Zahra 10. 
Hopefully the transition can be as amicable as possible for the girls' sake.

PopGoesTheArts 2014 In Review: The Most Talked About Moments

We're nearing the end of yet another year folks!!

While I've already given you all my picks for Top TV acting and Top songs, this will be a tad different. There have been many newsworthy moments in the world of celebrity this year, and yours truly is here to recap them for you.

So what shall we discuss?

Well, let's get to the serious ones first.

Scandal's Galore

No year is complete without scandals rocking Hollywood and 2014 was no different. From a beloved TV pastor, to an iconic TV father, some of the men fell from grace.



Former "7th Heaven" star Stephen Collins has publicly admitted to sexual molestation acts in the past, while also defending himself in the process. The audio of his confession went viral following his estranged wife's release. The embattled actor has lost many roles due to the confession including a major role in this season of.....(prepare for irony): "Scandal".

He also lost a minor role in the upcoming "Ted 2".

No…

With some Canadian venues still scheduled to have Bill Cosby take the stage in light of all of the women coming forward with allegations of sexual abuse, Apatow voiced his concerns:

“so @Centre_Square – are you really going to let Bill Cosby perform on your stage January 7?”

“You too @BudGardens Jan 8? Is Cosby only popular in Ontario Canada at this point? Do people still find him delightful after 30 accusers?”

It was then, that some users began to fire back, and Judd didn't hold back:

She Can't Let Her Daughter Have The Spotlight? Kris Jenner Joins Kendall For Photo Shoot

And SURPRISE:

She's wearing very little.

Proving that age is just a number, Kris Jenner joined her 19 year old daughter Kendall in a photo shoot for LOVE magazine. While Kris had on more clothes than Kendall, she was still wearing a really short dress.

I'm not exactly sure what is going on in the promotional video....

But whatever.

Kendall looks FIERCE.

Anyone else looking at Kris like she is the embarrassing mom?

SPLIT!! Tim Burton & Helena Bonham Carter End 13 Year Marriage

Sad face.

Director Tim Burton and actress Helena Bonham Carter split earlier this year, according to a new article in PEOPLE magazine.

The split ends the couple's 13 year marriage. They have 2 children together, Bill (11) & Nell (7).

Helena was almost always cast in Tim's flicks such as "Charlie & the Chocolate Factory", "Sweeney Todd", "Dark Shadows" and "Alice in Wonderland".

Seeing as they kept it quiet for this long, let's hope the transition has been easy on the kids.


TODAY Show Boots Amy Adams From Show After Actress Refuses To Discuss Sony Hack

Well, the TODAY show may have a problem on their hands.
Amy Adams hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, and being in NYC Monday morning, the TODAY show scheduled her for an appearance. She was supposed to sit down to discuss her new film "Big Eyes". 
Amy was reportedly approached beforehand by her team and told she would be asked about the Sony hack (which she has no ties to). When the actress insisted  that the question NOT be asked, producers for the program insisted. She was also told that they were a news outlet, and would not be told what they could or could not ask.
Amy decided to move forward with the interview, but at the last second, TODAY yanked her from the lineup and scrapped her entire appearance. This completely wasted Amy's time, as she only stayed in New York FOR the interview. 
Following the rude display, Amy's company The Weinstein's, released a statement backing their client:
“We firmly stand behind Amy Adams. We’ve been lucky enough to have…
