Pink (Sort Of) Apologizes For Dissing Demi Lovato And Other VMA Performers

Posted on Fri Sep 4th, 2015 9:31am PDT       By X17 Staff


Slam!

Pink was NOT a fan of most of the performances at the MTV Video Music Awards last weekend and, in fact, she even felt it necessary to Instagram a message about her distaste for today's music, writing:

    "I felt embarrassed and sad. And old. We're getting old. But in all seriousness; I felt sad because music is supposed to inspire. It saved my life. This trash won't save any kids life. In a world that is even scarier and with lives still worth saving, who will stand up and have soul? Disenfranchised to say the least. Let down by my industry and peers. Beside Macklemore and pharell [Williams] and [Justin] bieber (pre sob fest) and the weekend, Tori Kelly was dope too. The rest was gross and embarrassing and hard for this aging pop star to believe.


Notably absent from Pink's "excused" list were Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj. So Demi, in reply, Tweeted:


Ouch! But Pink replied by saying she's not looking for an online feud, writing:

    "Please look for a feud elsewhere. I have no issue with Demi Lovato or anyone else. I actually forgot she performed. I have opinions. MANY. I stand by what I said. However, I didn't intend for the angry people of the world to latch on and make it into something it isn't. Peace."


Was Pink justified in voicing her opinion?

Lily-Rose Depp Is A Breathtaking Beauty In Los Angeles

Posted on Fri Sep 4th, 2015 8:40am PDT       By X17 Staff


She's got good genes!

Lily-Rose Depp, the daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, looked gorgeous as she stepped out in Los Angeles on Thursday.

The petite 16-year-old donned a '90s-inspired dress with a pair of bulky sandals for her adventure into the sunshine. This style really ain't our thing but we know it's very on trend-- and it's clear that Lily is taking her role seriously as Hollywood's newest trendsetter.

The teen is on the cusp of being Hollywood's next "It" girl. In July she was named the new face of Chanel. She just filmed the new Kevin Smith movie, Yoga Hosers, which also stars Haley Joel Osment and Natasha Lyonne. Next up, she's slated to star in the drama Planetarium with Natalie Portman.

With more notoriety, Lily-Rose is finding that her life is coming under more scrutiny. As part of the Self Evident Truths Project, the gorgeous teen came out as sexually fluid via Instagram on Monday, Aug. 24. The model/actress came out as not 100 percent straight in order to help teens become more accepting of who they are.

Gorgeous, talented and an example to others!

Miley Cyrus Sneaks Out Of The Club With Cody Simpson

Posted on Fri Sep 4th, 2015 8:10am PDT       By X17 Staff


If you blink you'll miss it!

Miley Cyrus is so recognizable that she has a hard time going incognito, but she tried last night as she made her exit from The Nice Guy in Hollywood with Cody Simpson! The VMAs host was escorted out of the back door by an assistant, and the Australian singer followed behind with his leather jacket over his head to avoid being photographed. Someone should tell Gigi Hadid's ex that he's not that important!

The only reason for these two to hide their hangout is if something is going on romantically. The "Wrecking Ball" songstress is rumored to have broken up with her Victoria's Secret girlfriend Stella Maxwell, and Cody has been single since his split with his Sports Illustrated stunner ex. We know that the twerking queen goes both ways, so it's very possible these two are secretly hooking up and don't want anyone to know!

 

Caitlyn Jenner Narrowly Avoids Fender Bender After Dinner With Pal Candis Cayne

Posted on Fri Sep 4th, 2015 7:20am PDT       By X17 Staff


That was close!

Caitlyn Jenner grabbed dinner with her bestie Candis Cayne last night at Fig & Olive in West Hollywood, and the transgender reality star narrowly avoided a fender bender after their meal!

The ladies exited the restaurant to a swarm of photographers, and once the Olympian hopped in the driver's seat she put the car directly into drive, which caused it to lurch forward and almost hit another vehicle. Yikes! After the fatal crash on PCH that she was involved with earlier this year, the last thing she needs is another incident!

Maybe she should consider taking Uber until the PCH crash investigation is complete? She doesn't need any more drama behind the wheel!

FIRST PHOTOS - Ben And Jen Are All Smiles After Marriage Counseling Session

Posted on Thu Sep 3rd, 2015 7:36pm PDT       By X17 Staff


Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner don't exactly look like a couple on the verge of divorce!

The Hollywood power couple -- whose relationship is not only on the rocks but who have OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED they're going to divorce -- seemed peachy keen today during a meeting with their kids' pediatrician in Santa Monica. And guess where they'd just come from ... MARRIAGE COUNSELING!

Does the session signify a reconciliation??? Or are the two superstars just cordially co-parenting?

As soon as Affleck and Garner finished a two-hour session with the counselor, they headed to the kids' doctor for a meeting. As they emerged, the two were all smiles and appeared totally happy to be together. Our photographer on the scene tells us: "Ben was laughing as he left the office and Jen was smiling. It seemed like they had just shared a joke together. They didn't look at all like a couple that's separating ... or even fighting. They seemed totally fine."

Totally fine?! They're living together, doing marriage counseling, and both have smiles on their faces when they spend time together ... is it possible these two could call off the divorce?!

 

Taylor Swift's "Wildest Dreams" Director Defends Music Video After Backlash

Posted on Thu Sep 3rd, 2015 2:33pm PDT       By X17 Staff


Taylor Swift's "Wildest Dreams" director, Joseph Kahn, is not shaking off the criticism that the new music video glamorizes white colonial Africa.

In a statement to NPR, the 42-year-old said, "This is not a video about colonialism but a love story on the set of a period film crew in Africa, 1950. The video is based on classic Hollywood romances like Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, as well as classic movies like The African Queen, Out of Africa, and The English Patient, to name a few."

The video, which stars Scott Eastwood as Tay's romantic interest, debuted during the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards pre-show on Sunday. While many think the popstar can do no wrong, some people expressed their anger that the singer didn't feature any African-American actors in the 1950s-style love story.

In addition, Kahn, who has previously worked with Britney Spears, Eminem, Christina Aguilera, Destiny's Child, Kelly Clarkson, Lady Gaga, Backstreet Boys, Mariah Carey, and Maroon 5, said that there were people of color in the video and behind the scenes. "I am Asian American, the producer, Jil Hardin, is an African American woman, and the editor, Chancler Haynes, is an African American man. We collectively decided it would have been historically inaccurate to load the crew with more black actors as the video would have been accused of rewriting history."

He also made a good point when he said, "Let's not forget, Taylor has chosen to donate all of her proceeds from this video to the African Parks Foundation to preserve the endangered animals of the continent and support the economies of local African people."

We gotta agree with the director! Lay off T-Swizz!

Tay-Tay has yet to comment on all the hubbub, but we think the outcry will die down soon enough ...

EJ Johnson Is One Skinny B*tch!

Werk!

EJ Johnson has lost so much weight that we barely recognized him as he left lunch at The Ivy with Rich Kids co-star Dorothy Wang yesterday, and we can't decide what's more fabulous - his new physique or that Chanel necklace!

The reality star resorted to gastric bypass surgery after his weight ballooned, but he's kept it off and feels better than ever! "It was a tool, and I think that it was something that really helped me jumpstart the life I definitely wanted to lead...I mean like literally I'm almost half my size. I'm not dating anyone right now but, trust me, there are a lot of offers on the table," he told Wendy Williams about the procedure.

Fellas, he's single and ready to mingle!
