Hello World—Anthony here. As usual it’s time to wrap up everything that had us talking in celebrity news.
In “ the pot calling the kettle black news”, Twitter was abuzz on Sunday when former (insert big question mark) hard partying actress Lindsay Lohan threw some serious shade at troubled actress Amanda Bynes.
Referring to Bynes recent run ins with the law, on Sunday, Lohan tweeted, “Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far? ” and then continued by saying, “These are the moments that I appreciate my life experiences, living without regrets and Disney for supporting me as an actress-night all.”
Shake my head– Someone please tell Lindsay to have a seat. Let it be known that Lohan has been arrested multiple times for charges ranging from D.U.I., to cocaine possession and driving with a suspended license. Bynes has yet to issue a rebuttal.
In another episode of “the British monarchy can’t keep their clothes on”, the royal family was rocked by scandal when a French tabloid published photos of a topless Kate Middleton sunbathing with husband Prince William in France.
Both William and Kate have subsequently filed a lawsuit against the tabloid and any other publication that chooses to run the photos. This incident comes a mere month after William’s brother, Prince Harry, was caught on camera drunkenly running around his Vegas hotel room in the nude. That sound you here is the sound of Princess Diana turning in her grave.
The moment that everyone was waiting for finally arrived last Thursday. Britney Spears and Demi Lovato made their debut on the judge’s panel of X Factor. Both having somewhat troubled pasts, many were wondering if they would go all “Girl Interrupted and have a total meltdown on national television. Those worries were quickly put to rest when it was time for them to critique talent.
The show went smoothly with both Lovato and Spears offering constructive criticism to the superstar hopefuls. Now if only we could get Simon Cowell to wear looser shirts.
Right on the heels of X Factor, American Idol revealed their judges panel for the upcoming twelfth season. Joining Randy Jackson, the only remaining judge from previous seasons, will be Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban.
While the colorful, and somewhat random, mix of judges is sure to bring attention to the sinking ship that is American Idol, time will only tell whether or not the show will produce a true talent with staying power in the music industry. Maybe Mariah’s Lambs and Mina’s Barbz can draw in some good talent and restore the show’s credibility.
As always tune into Pop Addict next week to catch up on the latest celebrity news and gossip. Until next time my fellow pop culture enthusiasts.
