Paris Hilton laughs off Deadmau5 attack

Paris Hilton has branded Deadmau5 an attention seeker.

The 33-year-old socialite hit back at the DJ on Twitter after he called her a "straight up a**" for trying to carve out a career in the music industry and earning $1 million for "playing a CD at a club."

In a post on his blog, the 'Ghosts 'n' Stuff' hitmaker wrote: "I remember back when, at the cosmo in vegas, she attended, and i guess i was accommodating (as far as that usually goes for me) i could see she was having a fun time, liked the music, and just wanted to be a part of it all... so of course, why not... even i couldn't hate on that (sic).

"But, let's get real here for a second... There's being invovled / enthusiastic about something... and then theres just being a straight up a** (sic)."

The 33-year-old musician - real name Joel Zimmerman - said Paris was insulting him and his colleagues by encroaching on their scene and calling herself a professional, as they have "invested their entire lives to their careers."

He added: "so paris, thank you... were actually not even mad youre enthusiatic about electronic music... we love that youre a part of our party. But please, get the f**k back in your go kart. No need to prove that you found someone stupid enough to consider paying you a million dollars for something the world knows you arent... because here's what you actually are to everyone who knows better.. ticket sales. nothing more (sic)."

He also suggested the former reality TV star only became a DJ because she once dated DJ AfroJack.

But the blonde beauty quickly laughed off his rant, tweeting: "I find it hilarious when others try to badmouth me in order to get attention. Sorry that I'm #Killingit while doing what I love & live for (sic)."

Honey Boo Boo has been axed

'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' has been axed "effective immediately."

The reality TV series - which focuses on the life of beauty pageant contestant Alana Thompson, nine, and her family in McIntyre, Georgia - has been cancelled by TLC amid rumors family matriarch June Shannon is dating a convicted sex offender.

The US network said in a statement: "TLC has cancelled the series 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' and ended all activities around the series, effective immediately.

"Supporting the health and welfare of these remarkable children is our only priority. TLC is faithfully committed to the children's ongoing comfort and well being."

June, 35, insists her four daughters are her top priority despite reports she is romancing Mark McDaniel, who was convicted of aggravated child molestation on one of her young relatives in 2004 and released from jail in March.

The star, who recently split from her husband Mike 'Sugar Bear' Thompson, wrote on her Facebook page on Thursday (10.23.14): "It isn't true i promise. My kids r #1 priority over anything else (sic)."

She also denied the allegations in a video clip today (10.24.14), saying: "As of right now there will be no more production of the show. The statement of me dating a sex offender is not true. I would not ever put my kids in danger."

She added: "Things happen for a reason in life. We love y'all (sic)."

The series premiered in 2012 and ratings for its most recent season remained strong, but the network decided to cancel the show just one day after gossip website obtained a photograph of June and Mark at a small party in a hotel room and obtained "compelling evidence" they are in a relationship.

Rupert Grint: Shia LaBeouf had naked hallucinations

Rupert Grint says Shia LaBeouf "got naked and kept seeing this owl" on the set of their new film.

The 'Harry Potter' actor has confessed his 'The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman' co-star took his preparation for the role very seriously, resulting in him "smashing up" the set and behaving erratically.

Quizzed on whether Shia, 28, did lots of mad things on the set of the film - for which he admitted to taking acid for scenes in which his character takes ecstasy - Rupert said: "Er, yeah. Yeah, he did. I guess you'd call him a method actor. He kind of lived that part.

"It was ... interesting. I think he's talked about it a bit himself. Things happened which I probably shouldn't go into.

"He smashed the place up, got naked and kept seeing this owl. If anything will make you not do drugs, it's watching that."

The 26-year-old actor admitted, however, that Shia's character wasn't the only one to be involved in strange scenes in the upcoming film.

He explained to The Guardian newspaper: "I'm a wannabe porn star called Boris Pecker. My main plot is I take too much Viagra and require medical assistance. So it's me running around with a strap-on."

Meanwhile, Rupert has also revealed he's bought a pet tortoise named Madeline to help him get over his homesickness since moving to New York.

He said: "I named him before I found out his gender. You don't really need to do anything with him. He doesn't even need water that often. Doesn't like to be touched either."


William H. Macy has renewed love for film industry

William H. Macy has ''fallen in love'' with the film industry ''all over again''.

The 64-year-old actor recently made his directorial debut on upcoming comedy-drama 'Rudderless' and he's confessed he's glad he's making the change so late in life because it's renewed his love for movies.

He explained: ''We all know directors who, having done the most brilliant work early in their career, eventually start to flag and get worse.

''They lose touch with the world and work in a vacuum. But because I'm starting in my 60s, I'm approaching it with a humility I wouldn't otherwise have had.

''On the one hand, I'm scared half to death, which means that I listen to people. And on the other, it's as though I've fallen in love with the business all over again.''

The 'Wild Hogs' star added: ''So I'm scared and horny. I'm like a 14-year-old boy.''

Macy also revealed the reason behind his decision to take a step back from acting.

He told The Guardian newspaper: ''My career is what is it, but I felt that I'd exhausted the fun in acting. I still get a good role every once in a while, but a lot of it is yeoman work.

''I'm usually being called on to play somebody's uncle, or the elderly senator. And that's fine, it's money. But it's not that scintillating any more.''

Kim Kardashian West submitted 2,000 selfies for book

Kim Kardashian West's new book features "2,000 selfies".

The reality TV star has revealed the much-anticipated book, 'Selfish' - which is set for a pre-Christmas release - was the brainchild of husband Kanye West and the 352 pages contain thousands of her self-captured photos.

Kim, 34, explained to the Evening Standard Magazine: "Kanye came up with the concept and the name and everything.

"He introduced me to the book publisher. And I was like, 'This is such a good idea, I can't believe I didn't think of it.' It's 352 pages and multiples on the page, so I turned in probably 2,000 selfies."

Kim - who married 37-year-old Kanye in May this year - has refuted accusations the tome is nothing but a vanity project for her, insisting it is a catalogue of her life and a reflection of the modern world.

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star added: "I've been taking selfies for a long time - it's like now [seen as] such a vain thing, but it really started off with me just having a camera around to capture memories. They're selfies taken over a decade."

Kim - who gave birth to daughter North in June 2013 - has also given her top tips on how to take the best selfie possible.

She explained: "Lighting is key. I think a lot of people take a lot of selfies before they actually post one. So, in the book you'll definitely see ... like I posted this one selfie of myself in a white bathing suit, after I had the baby ... it was kind of like from the back in the mirror... and I took about 10 shots to get that one. So I'm probably going to put all ten in there."

Taylor Swift 'scared' of being framed for murder

Taylor Swift is "scared" of being framed for murder.

The 24-year-old singer admits her worst nightmare is being blamed for a terrible crime she hasn't committed as she believes "so many people" could stitch her up.

Speaking on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show', she explained: "I'm scared of getting framed. So many people would frame me and they could frame you for any crime that you could go to jail for. Look at me, I wouldn't survive in jail.

"I think it comes from the fact that I could open up my phone, I could look at my phone and see any headline written about me at anytime and it could be the most ridiculous untrue thing.

"So, I think the dream and the nightmare of being framed comes from, I could do nothing wrong, I could sit in my house with the cats all day and somehow there could be an article about me buying a house in a place I've never been or dating a guy I've never met.

"But then you take it a step further and in nightmare world it's being framed for murder."

However, that isn't the only thing the 'Shake It Off' hitmaker is terrified of as she admits she also can't stand sea urchins.

She said: "They're like a grenade. They're sitting there waiting to completely injure you to the point where ... You can't see a sea urchin right there and then you step on one and it has barbs and it goes into whatever it touches and then you have to go to an emergency room and it has to be surgically removed. "You could lose your foot. you could lose your hand. You could lose your hand trying to get it off of your foot. So, I don't like sea urchins."

The Situation pleads not guilty to tax fraud

Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino has pleaded not guilty to tax fraud.

The reality TV star and his brother Marc Sorrentino denied any wrongdoing when they appeared in court together in Newark, New Jersey, today (10.23.14).

The siblings allegedly conspired to fail to pay federal income tax owed on income earned for "promotional activities" between 2010 and 2012.

Mike has also been accused of failing to file a tax return in 2011 after earning $1.99 million that year.

However, the 32-year-old star reportedly allowed his brother to take control of all his business dealings but, while he doesn't want to be convicted for a wrongdoing he doesn't feel he has actually committed, he doesn't want to make his brother a scapegoat.

Mike was originally scheduled to be arraigned on October 6, but the federal case was put on hold for two weeks as it would have clashed with the 'Jersey Shore' star's filming commitments on the reality TV show.

The company were also concerned that Mike would have been forced to pull out of filming, which would have lead to a re-cast or delay shooting the scenes.

Mike and his brother's trial for their tax fraud case will take place on December 2.

Keira Knightley to make Broadway debut

Keira Knightley is to make her Broadway debut next year.

The 29-year-old actress is set to appear as a beautiful but doomed heroine in the stage adaptation of Emile Zola's novel 'Thérèse Raquin,' from October, 1, 2015, the Roundabout Theatre Company have announced.

The production is to be directed by Evan Cabnet and will be based on the story about a woman trapped in a failed marriage, who strikes up an illicit affair with her husband's best friend.

The novel, which was published in 1867, was turned into a film starring Simone Signoret in 1953, and was then taken and adapted again for the movie 'In Secret', starring Elizabeth Olsen, last year.

Meanwhile, Keira made her West End debut in 2009 when she starred in the comedy 'The Misanthrope,' before taking to the stage just two years later for Lillian Hellman's 'The Children's Hour.'

The stunning star was last seen in the romantic film 'Begin Again,' and will next feature on the big screen for 'Everest', also starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin and Sam Worthington, which will be released in 2015.

Jennifer Lawrence wants to be 'rock star girlfriend'

Jennifer Lawrence wants to be a "rock star girlfriend."

The 24-year-old actress has reportedly swapped her designer frocks for "edgy T-shirt and jeans" for her new boyfriend, Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin, 37.

A source told the US' OK! Magazine: "She really wants to look cool as the girlfriend of a rock God and has splashed out on a whole range of new edgy T-shirts and jeans so she looks the part backstage when Chris is performing. She's totally into the whole scene and loving her new life as the leading lady of a music legend. She's trying to lose her gawky image and keep her designer clothing for red carpet appearances."

However, it appears the 'Hunger Games' star doesn't really need to change up her look to fit in with her new beau as Chris' friends already approve of the beauty and believe she's a better match for him than his estranged wife Gwyneth Paltrow, whom he split from in March following 10 years of marriage.

A source said previously: "Although Jennifer is different from Gwyneth, both girls are earthy. They like to play and act silly at times. Chris is happy because he and Jennifer are on the same wavelength."

It's not just Chris' pals who have grown to like Jennifer as Gwyneth, who has daughter Apple, 10, and son Moses, eight, with Chris, also gets along with her.

An insider said two months ago: "Her take is, 'Hey, he could do worse.' She just wants him to be happy."

Britney Spears earns 1m per week

Britney Spears is earning $1 million a week.

The 'Toxic' hitmaker began a two-year residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas in December 2013 and it has now emerged that ticket sales were so successful, after just 50 shows her representatives renegotiated her contract from $310,000 per performance to $475,000, including her share of merchandising and other perks.

The deal - which means Britney earns just $1,000 less than the city's biggest earner, Celine Dion - also saw the number of shows the 32-year-old star will perform over the duration of her residency rise from 92 to 140, TMZ reports.

The staggering pay check from her residency, plus income from record sales and other ventures mean the 'Piece of Me' hitmaker is banking around $1 million every week.

And it is just as well Britney - who has sons Preston, nine, and Jayden, eight, with ex-husband Kevin Federline - is earning so much as it was recently revealed she spends over $30,000 a year just on her dogs.

She forked out over $13,000 on a pair of pooches in 2013, a white Maltese in January and a Yorkie in July for $5,568 and $8,212 respectively as well as paying a staggering $5,205 to get her dogs looked after when she wasn't there.

The figures came courtesy of new legal documents filed in her conservatorship, which also revealed Britney spent a hefty $1,585 on clothes for her canines including $650 in one four-legged friend spending spree.

Her grand total spend of $31,234.15 on her pooches was completed by spends such as dog food.

Bill Murray can't imagine joining Tinder

Bill Murray thinks online dating is "amusing."

The 'St. Vincent' star, who has six sons from two previous marriages, claims he doesn't need any assistance meeting women and "can't imagine" joining Tinder.

Discussing the mobile app, the 64-year-old actor said: "I know about Tinder. I know it became very popular at the Olympics."

He added: "I think it could be amusing. But I can't imagine doing it particularly. I feel like I've lived that life, and I can live that life at any moment and say, 'hey, you with the camera, damn it I'm coming your way.' "

Bill says he is very impulsive and thinks he gets away with things because he always shows up for work on time.

Asked if he likes to live spontaneously, he told 'Jimmy Kimmel Live': "Everyone thinks they're doing that okay, they don't want to be bullied, they don't want to be pushed around. There is a certain comfort level that you get to. People don't push you around at your job if you're good at your job and you show up on time. You don't have to be good at your job, but if you show up every day that's most of it."

Kendra Wilkinson thinks husband is being blackmailed

Kendra Wilkinson thinks Hank Baskett is being blackmailed.

The 'Kendra on Top' star insists she "didn't care" after a recording of an alleged phone call between her husband, who was accused of cheating on her earlier this year, and transexual model Ava London was leaked online recently, as she believes her husband is being set-up.

Asked about the tape, the 29-year-old beauty told E! News: "It didn't do anything. It didn't make things worse, it was just recycled c**p. If anything, it even sounded more like a set-up. It was premeditated."

She added: "I feel like celebrities right now have a big target on their heads and blackmail is to follow."

Asked if Hank tried to explain the tape to her, she said: "He didn't need to. This is [a] straight set-up and if anybody thinks, 'Oh, he's guilty,' I'm like, 'Who's the one guilty? The one who is setting up this blackmail, that's the one who should be in jail right now.' "

The blonde beauty's "heart" has prevented her from filing for divorce to date.

She said: "I'm not making a rash decision in a divorce or staying with him, I'm just trying to let things happen naturally, let things play out a little longer because I found myself in a position where it came down to literally a signature for the divorce to go through, and something held me back.

"Something a little bit more powerful pulled me away from doing that and the power I believe is my heart. I believe we're all given a heart to use for forgiveness. I think that if you don't use your heart, there's no point in life."

The 33-year-old singer fueled speculation her husband had cheated on her when she cried on stage during their 'On The Run' tour over the summer and changed the lyrics of her track 'Resentment', singing: "She ain't even half of me.

The duo have also been spotted house hunting in Paris in the past month and the insider confirmed: "They're looking for a place."
