Miley Cyrus Banned From The Dominican Republic

Her vulgar antics aren't welcome there!

Miley Cyrus has been banned from performing in the Dominican Republic because her on-stage behavior is too raunchy.

The government commission released a statement Thursday that explained the singer "undertakes acts that go against morals and customs, which are punishable by Dominican law." It sounds like they think riding a giant hot dog while flashing your crotch isn't tasteful!

This isn't the first time the "We Can't Stop" songstress has been criticized for being too sexual! We all remember her VMA performance with Robin Thicke!


Gwyneth Paltrow On Estranged Husband Chris Martin Dating Jennifer Lawrence: "He Could Do Worse"

Posted on Fri Aug 22nd, 2014 10:45am PDT       By X17 Staff

It's not an insult, but it's not exactly a seal of approval either!

After the news broke last week that Gwyneth Paltrow's estranged husband Chris Martin has rebounded with Jennifer Lawrence, Gwynnie told a friend that she's fine with it. Of course, in typical Goop-y fashion, Gwyneth also had a backhanded compliment for the much-younger actress. "Her take is, 'Hey, he could do worse,'" a pal tells Us Weekly. "She just wants him to be happy."

Chris and J. Law reportedly had a lunch date at the Wolffer Estate Vineyard in New York earlier this month, and the Hunger Games star was recently spotted at the British singer's concert in New York City. Last week it was revealed that Gwynnie and Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk were dating, so it looks like everyone's moving on. While Gwyn looks amazing for her age, we do have to wonder if she's a little bitter about the age gap between J. Law and her rocker ex -- he's 37 and she's 24.

Lawrence split from boyfriend Nicholas Hoult last month, and though rumors have been swirling that he's struck up a romance with Equals co-star Kristen Stewart, that has yet to be confirmed. But they did seem pretty comfortable when they dumped dirty bath water on each other's heads yesterday...

Jennifer Lopez Tells Chelsea Handler: "I Don't Like To Wh*re Around"

JLo isn't holding back!

While on Chelsea Lately last night, Jennifer Lopez got pretty blunt -- and we love it!

When asked about her single lady status, the 45-year-old told host Chelsea Handler, "I like being in a relationship. I'm not one to like whore around and stuff like that—that's not my thing."

We are pretty in awe of Lopez's star power -- but it seems like we're not the only ones. Handler seemed enamored by the always glowing star -- and asked how she always managed to look so good.

"I try take care of myself... I try to live right, try to healthy and happy. I don't drink. I never smoked... I don't like it (alcohol)... I never got accustomed to the taste of alcohol, the mom of twins added. "My mom used to scare us about alcohol and drugs. We grew up in the Bronx and she was just like so afraid that we were gonna fall into bad stuff... She drummed it in our heads."


Victoria Beckham Gets Taken Down By The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Posted on Fri Aug 22nd, 2014 9:45am PDT       By X17 Staff

We weren't sure if she'd do it -- but it turns out Posh is a good sport!

Victoria Beckham got down and dirty when did her own ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Thursday -- and even got knocked to the ground during it!

Answering Eva Longoria's challenge, the fashion fiend knelt on the ground in her workout gear as she was surrounded by her three eager sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.

Before getting drenched, the mom of four nominated Tom Ford, Katie Holmes and her youngest son Cruz to do the challenge.

Celebs and non celebs all over the world have been getting in on the Ice Bucket Challenge over the past week -- each video seems to get more elaborate. Ben Affleck knocked wife Jennifer Aniston into the pool during his video. Her hubby, David Beckham, traded in a bucket for a barrel of ice water. Tom Cruise got doused by an endless stream of buckets.

The icy endeavor is part of a worldwide viral campaign to raise money to fund a cure for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease or Motor Neurone Disease.

Rihanna Glares At Ex-Boyfriend Chris Brown During Charity Basketball Game

Rihanna attended a Roc Nation charity basketball game on Thursday evening at the Barclays Center in New York City, and when her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown made a surprise appearance on the court, she didn't even flinch -- in fact, she totally stared him down! No one's got a stink eye like Bad Gal RiRi ... and you know she's thinking to herself how stupid his bleached blonde hair looks! At least we wanna believe she is...

Ri was joined by BFF Cara Delevingne, and at one point she got up from her seat and strutted around in a pair of barely-there cutoffs with a smile on her face. It's not clear if the R&B superstar exchanged any words with her ex, but she held her ground and kept her cool.

Funny thing is, Chris' on-again gf Karrueche Tran was NOT there -- she was en route to Jamaica, where she's hosting a party at a nightclub in Kingston. Think Chris would have brought Karrueche if she was in town?


Zac Efron Smokes Up A Storm On Set

Posted on Fri Aug 22nd, 2014 8:00am PDT       By X17 Staff

That's an odd looking cigarette!

Zac Efron was back on the set of his latest film We Are Your Friends in the Hollywood Hills yesterday, and he was puffing away on a joint, but we have to believe it's just a prop for the movie! Either that, or he's smoking real marijuana in an attempt to numb the pain from his recent split from Michelle Rodriguez.

The actor and the Fast and the Furious star called it quits recently, and allegedly their fling ended because the actress was still hung up on ex-girlfriend Cara Delevingne! Not only that, but the High School Musical star wanted a more intense relationship than the brunette beauty was ready for. "Zac has an addicting personality, which rolls over to his women. He invests into something and falls hard — fast. He really fell hard for Michelle, and she wanted to just have fun and not have a super serious relationship. Plus, Michelle is interested more in women than men — so that was an issue as well," a source tells Hollywood Life.

We wonder who he's going to date next?

Posted on Fri Aug 22nd, 2014 7:30am PDT       By X17 Staff

Is she getting thinner or what she's wearing?

On Thursday, Kim Kardashian gave the world a peek at her progress since giving birth to her baby girl North last year when she posted a pic of herself on Instagram sporting a super tight corset along with the caption, "#hourglass #waisttraining #nophotoshopnecessary @premadonna87."

The 33-year-old has already lost 7 lbs. thanks to her low-carb diet but her handy dandy midriff tool seems to be the real trick.

The Whats A Waist device Kim's rocking is not your everyday corset as it has been advertised to reduce waistlines up to seven inches and can even change your body shape for only $143.50!

Wonder if anyone else is following her trend?

Dean McDermott lent a hand as well!

Yesterday, Tori Spelling did what any doting mother would do to help her kids... including help them with their lemonade stand!

The reality star couple did their best to aid Liam, Stella, Hattie and Finn pursue their pint-sized capitalistic goals by selling drinks and treats under the summer sun in Malibu.

Nice to see these two working together to show their kids the value of hard work!

Of course! Even if they've hit a rough patch, they'll get through this.
No way! They probably won't even be able to finish their tour before announcing their split...
Maybe, but they might be saving their marriage for the wrong reasons...
