    Hey, mistakes happen. But on "Game of Thrones," it's an epidemic. 


    For instance, when your mom says don't climb on the castle, just don't do it, Bran. And also, Robb. What are you thinking? Going to your boy's place for a wedding right after you broke a marriage vow to his family is the worst idea ever. In fact, everyone should probably just avoid going to weddings altogether. Send cash, y'all. It's not hard.


    While "GoT' characters can't help but make bad choices, the show's production is usually pretty spot-on. Still, some goofs do slip in. Here are 10 mistakes you might've missed on "Game of Thrones":


    (Some spoilers below)


     


    1. Catelyn Stark's hand mysteriously disappears. 




    The King in the North is sufficiently weirded out.

    2. Sophie Turner is a Targaryen?



    Could Sansa be the third head of the dragon?

    3. That time Craster's blood pack was showing.




    You might not want to chew on that, bro. A bunch of red junk comes out.

    4. Blood magically reappears after being wiped off.




    Can someone get this guy a ShamWow?

    5. Oh, and Emilia Clarke is a Lannister, apparently.



    Looks like the usurper is on your side, bruh.

    6. Grenn's sword instantly jumps feet away from his hand.




     Mr. Butterfingers, right?

    7. When Stannis' computer charger was showing.

    The image is apparently a behind-the-scenes photo where some type of device appears to be visible under Stannis' leg, but it looks like you can still see the wires on the show:



    Yo, can a playa borrow your charger? It's not like you're going to need it anymore.

    8. The Sons of the Harpy are so sneaky even their dead bodies disappear.




    Whoa. Those guys are good.

    9. The time Joffrey was a Stark.



    It still doesn't make us like you, man. 
    Season 2, Episode 6 "The Old Gods and the New" (Image: HBO)


     


    10. That awkward moment when your bros all sheathe their swords, but you just can't.




    All men must die of embarrassment.

    Beyoncé has not answered a direct question in more than a year, and Vogue's September issue was no exception. 


    For the year's biggest issue of the fashion magazine, Beyoncé appears in an editorial spread photographed by Mario Testino and in accompanying videos on Vogue.com, but she does not utter a single word for the cover story written by Margo Jefferson.


    “It was definitely posed to me as … call it a think piece, if you want. I had no contact with her camp," Jefferson told the New York Times. Words are wind for Mrs. Carter: “She has to be studying how effective her interviews have been so far. She may have decided that they do not contribute as dazzlingly to the portrait of Beyoncé as the other stuff. It’s a perfectly reasonable decision.”



    In a May piece about Beyoncé and Jay Z's vegan diets, the New York Times only received correspondence from her via email: "Beyoncé, a representative explained, has not answered any direct questions for more than a year." 


    This may come as no surprise, seeing as how every aspect of the public life of the very private star is seemingly meticulously curated, from her 2013 HBO documentary to her vacation photos


    When you're Queen Bey, the world is on your terms. 


    Bow down. 




    A representative for Vogue was not immediately available to comment.

    Pretty much everyone* denied that Kylie Jenner and Tyga were dating for as long as they've been together. But what do you know, as soon as Jenner turned 18 and their relationship became "legal" (the age of consent in California is 18, not that we would dare to assume the two are in a sexual relationship), they've suddenly been a lot more open with their relationship.


    In fact, during a recent trip to Mexico -- where they celebrated the very fact that Jenner turned 18 -- the pair were all over each other, which is something they were sure to avoid when the star was still underage.





    And on Wednesday, as Tyga joined Jenner in St Barts for a family vacation, the two continued to pack on the PDA.




    *Almost everyone denied their relationship. Jenner's brother-in-law Kanye West was pretty up front about it when asked, while Jenner's sister Khloe Kardashian admitted the two were dating just weeks before Jenner turned 18, and attempted to justify the relationship by claiming that Jenner was "not a normal 17-year-old."

    You probably haven't heard of the VICE-produced indie Dutch film "Prince," which mixes the visual aesthetic of Nicolas Winding Refn (think "Drive") with a playful take on the street crime of "City of God," all to moody synths reminiscent of "It Follows." However, you may have read about the film's stars. Page Six covered the recent arrest of lead Ayoub Elasri, while GQ.com admired the oddity of Dutch rapper Lil' Kleine (neé Jorik Scholten), whom "Prince" director Sam de Jong describes as "the Justin Bieber of the Netherlands." But if you haven't seen Lil' Kleine's music video "Drank & Drugs" yet, please stop what you're doing and watch it below. Song of the summer?




    Super catchy, right? If that grabbed your attention, so will "Prince." The film stars Elasri as Ayoub, an Amsterdam kid who spends his days setting off firecrackers in mailboxes with his boys, a crew of three other teens which include Franky (Scholten), Oussama, played by 15-year-old kickboxing champ Oussama Addi, and Achraf (Achraf Meziani). In the movie, Ayoub falls for a girl and is determined to do whatever he can to win her attention, even working for the street's most respected gangster to prove himself. But Ayoub and BFF Franky soon have a falling out when Franky starts hooking up with Ayoub's sister Demi (Olivia Lonsdale, the girl in the leopard print in the "Drank & Drugs" music video).


    "Prince" is a stunning first feature from de Jong, who previously directed shorts and music videos (including "Drank & Drugs."), with charged performances from its cast of mostly non-professional actors. But in a story about juvenile aggression starring amateur actors, there's the chance fiction will mirror reality. In an interview with The Huffington Post, de Jong told us about the on-set animosity that nearly led him to recast the leads. "It was more like social work," de Jong said of directing the boys. "Most of my work with them was making sure that raw energy came into the film without exploding." And it came close, many times.



    The tension on the set of "Prince" was mainly an ego war between Elasri, 18, and Scholten, 21. "Ayoub was the alpha male because he was starring in [the movie], he’s the hero," the director said. "But [Scholten], he couldn’t deal with that. He has like 200,000 Instagram followers, he’s like the Justin Bieber of the Netherlands. And he wanted the highest status. So the second shooting day, they just exploded." The two boys had such a difficult time getting along on set that de Jong and the crew had to hold them back from one another. "They really wanted to just fuck each other up all the time."


    But the boys' real-life beef played into the film in more ways than one. It became so impossible to have the actors on set at the same time that de Jong came up with the idea to shoot most of their group scenes as single close-ups, which largely informed the film's style. "It ended up being a stylistic choice, but I came on to it by necessity," he told us. "I was trying to find a way to work with them, and by sending the others away I could get this quirky sort of comedy by having them act to the camera. So it feels a little constructed."


    Although de Jong says he didn't use the tension between Elasri and Scholten's to heighten their characters' on-screen fight, we can't help but wonder how much the two drew from it. In one scene, Ayoub rushes toward Franky and punches him in the face, a punch that plays even more charged knowing their real-life hostility. But struggling to stifle teenagers' hormone-fueled fights and avoid legal issues -- one of the actors even stole the production car keys for a joy ride -- is not something de Jong wants to do again in the future.


    "It’s fucking with your head," de Jong said. "At the same time it’s cool because the movie is about that. But now, in my next project, I just want to save my energy for more creative stuff."


    "Prince" is now playing.

    Jennifer Lawrence's Hollywood takeover has really paid off. 


    Thanks to her appearances in two major franchises ("The Hunger Games," and "X-Men") and a slew of other successful films, her high-fashion endorsement deal with Dior and her all-around cool girl attitude that clearly keeps her in demand with the top directors and producers, JLaw has cemented her place as the highest paid actress in the world according to Forbes. 


    The Oscar winner banked an impressive $52 million before taxes over the past year. Her earnings moved her up from the second place spot, which she held last year. And last December, the Kentucky-born star was also named the top grossing actor of 2014. Hollywood is hers, everyone else is just struggling to survive working in it.  


    The second place spot went to Scarlett Johansson, who earned $35.5 million, while Melissa McCarthy followed with $23 million. Sandra Bullock, last year's No. 1 woman, dropped to 15th this year with total earnings of $8 million. 


    This year, Forbes expanded their sights beyond Hollywood and included actors and actresses from around the world in their annual list. Chinese actress Bingbing Fan, who appeared in "X-Men Days of Future Past," ranked fourth, with earnings at $21 million. 


    In the actor category, Robert Downey Jr. took home the top accolade for the third year in a row, earning a whopping $80 million. Interestingly, as Entertainment Weekly notes, the list of actors included 21 men who made more than $20 million, while there were only four women who earned that much. Proof that the gender wage gap in Hollywood is very, very real.

    We finally have our first look at Lady Gaga's character on the set of  "American Horror Story: Hotel," and she looks pretty Gaga-esque.


    Gaga's Elizabeth, the Countess and owner of Season 5's Hotel Cortez, was spotted filming on location for the series on Wednesday night outside of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). Wearing a red caped gown and the metal arm piece from the first "Hotel" teaser, Gaga walks through Chris Burden's street lamp sculpture at the Wilshire Boulevard entrance to the museum as some sort of black tie party takes place around her.



    A fan also uploaded a video to YouTube of Mother Monster entering the sculpture to the music of Dinah Washington's "Coquette."




    So what could it all mean? For starters, the footage left some fans on Reddit perplexed as they theorized whether or not "Hotel" will be set in the present day. Although FX President John Landgraf previously said it's his "hope" that Season 5 takes place in the modern day, the network has yet to reveal exactly what era the show will be in. But this new footage could give us some clues.


    Burden's sculpture "Urban Light" was installed outside the museum in 2008. If "Hotel" is acknowledging the piece's real-life location at LACMA, then we can expect at least some episodes to take place sometime between '08 and today. But, Ryan Murphy also might be using the sculpture to reference the era of them lamps themselves. Burden's piece is made up of restored cast iron street lamps from the 1920s and '30s. Could it also take place then?


    One thing we can guess is that "Hotel" will likely flash to the years 1989 or 1990 when Aileen Wuornos murdered several men -- Lily Rabe will portray the infamous serial killer this season. Knowing Murphy's style though, "Hotel" will probably jump between a variety of eras.


    "American Horror Story: Hotel" premieres on Oct. 7 on FX.

    When life coach Iyanla Vanzant first met Evelyn Lozada in 2012, the "Basketball Wives" star was in the midst of a personal crisis. She had recently married NFL player Chad Ochocinco Johnson, but life for the newlyweds was far from bliss. After 38 days of marriage, Lozada says he attacked and head-butted her during an argument, leaving her to require stitches in her forehead. She opened up to Vanzant about the abuse and her emotional decision to file for divorce during a two-part episode of OWN's series "Iyanla: Fix My Life."

    It's been three years since the women first met, and Vanzant wants to see how Lozada's life has evolved. In the above clip from the upcoming episode of "Livin' Lozada," Vanzant asks Lozada about her relationship with professional baseball player Carl Crawford.

    "He's a good guy," Lozada says, beaming. "We respect each other, we don't curse each other out."

    "I've never been in a relationship like that," she admits.

    When Vanzant asks about Crawford's relationship with his mother, Lozada is happy to report that they have a great relationship. "I really like her, too," Lozada says. "I think this is the first mother-in-law that likes me!" 

    The couple now lives in Los Angeles together with their 1-year-old son, Leo. Lozada recalls that the first time Crawford reached out to her, she had trouble understanding his Texas accent. "So I was like, 'What? What are you saying?" Lozada laughs. "But then I was like, this guy has big cojones to want to talk to me. He's very private, never dated anyone, per se, in the limelight at all. He's just been very to himself and very focused on what he does."

    Lozada, on the other hand, is no stranger to spotlight. "So I always say, 'Poor guy.' Before me, you would Google him, it was just his stats and stuff. And then now it's all this crap with me," she says with a smile.

    "Livin' Lozada" airs Saturdays at 9 p.m. ET on OWN.

    The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has completed its investigation into the car crash Caitlyn Jenner was involved in this past February that left one woman dead. 


    According to ABC7, detectives are recommending that the district attorney charge Jenner with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter. According to the report, Jenner was not speeding, but she was still traveling at an unsafe speed for road conditions when her Escalade rear-ended two cars, pushing Kim Howe’s car into oncoming traffic, causing the fatal crash. 


    TMZ had previously reported that Jenner was unlikely to face felony charges, however,  if convicted on the misdemeanor charge, she faces up to a year in county jail. 


    According to the Los Angeles Times, detectives will also present evidence against Jessica Steindorff, the driver of the Toyota Prius involved in the crash who has filed a lawsuit against Jenner. Detective Richard Curry told the paper Steindorff was driving on a suspended license and could be charged with a crime. 


    Meanwhile, Jenner is also being sued by Howe's stepchildren, William Howe and Dana Redmond, who filed a wrongful death lawsuit claiming the former Olympian was driving at unsafe speeds. They also alleged she was negligent when she rear-ended the car, causing their mother's death.

    Josh Duggar, who was forced to resign from his position as executive director of the conservative and anti-gay group Family Research Council Action when he admitted that as a teenager he sexually molested five minor girls -- has now owned up to cheating on his wife after his Ashley Madison profile was discovered


     On Thursday, Josh, as well as his parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar (who until July were stars on TLC's "19 Kids and Counting") posted a message on the family's official website. 


    "I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the Internet, and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife," Josh wrote in a statement, though he has since removed the reference to his Internet pornography addiction.


    He added, "I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved [sic] for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him."



    Josh, whose wife Anna gave birth to their fourth child in July, went on to say that he "deeply regrets all the hurt [he's] caused by being such a bad example," and concluded his statement by asking for forgiveness. 


    Meanwhile, Josh's parents wrote, "Please see the statement below from our son Josh regarding recent media stories about him. When we learned of this late last night, our hearts were broken. As we continue to place our trust in God, we ask for your prayers for Josh, Anna, our grandchildren and our entire family."


    The revelations of Josh's infidelity are particularly ironic given his former place of employment and his political beliefs. At a National Organization for Marriage event in April he spoke out against gay marriage, telling a crowd, "Natural marriage is something that has been clearly defined over the years. What's really at stake here is the American family. Marriage is essential to the American family and every single child deserves a mother and a father."

    It's been almost a full decade since her last album, but JoJo, who we grew to love as the sassy 13-year-old singer who penned one of the most perfect breakup anthems of the early 2000s, is finally back. 


    The "Leave (Get Out)" singer is getting ready to release a new album under Atlantic Records (she split from Blackground in 2014 after a very messy legal battle), but since she clearly knows how much we've all missed her, she decided to bless us with a "tringle" (three new singles) on Thursday. We've been anticipating new music from the Boston-born singer since we realized she was all grown up, and now we finally have a glimpse of the greatness to come. (Side note: Yes, we're aware she's released two mixtapes and an EP since her last album.)


    The first new track, "Say Love," is a powerful R&B ballad produced by Harmony Samuels, in which JoJo shows off her impressive vocal range. Then, there's "Save My Soul," another ballad with a whole lot of emotion going on and a very catchy chorus and hook. Lastly, there's "When Love Hurts," a dance-y house-meets-EDM track that's sure to be every club-goer's next jam.  


    You can listen to all the tracks below:

    Last week, attorney Gloria Allred held a press conference with the three new women accusing Bill Cosby of sexual assault. On Thursday, Allred attended another press conference in New York with two new accusers, one introduced as Elizabeth, a former flight attendant, and Charlotte Fox, a former aspiring actress.


    The two women were accompanied by Allred and Sarita Butterfield, a former Playboy model who has previously spoken out against Cosby for assaulting her at the Playboy Mansion when she was 15 years old. The press conference was streamed live via CTV News.


    The woman introduced as Elizabeth read her statement first at the conference. She recounted her experience at a Japanese restaurant where Cosby made her drink from his sake. "All I know is that it was the most horrifying thing that could happen to any young woman," Elizabeth said. "The next thing I remember is I was in the Rolls-Royce profusely vomiting. I remember the driver saying, 'You're not the first.'"


    Elizabeth continued, saying, "I've lived with the shame and the guilt of thinking it was somehow my fault, but it wasn't. Because if I hadn't been drugged, I would have never ended up in a hotel with him and he knew that." 


    Fox then recalled her time working on the set of "Uptown Saturday Night" as an extra in the 1970s where she met the comedian. Fox remembered feeling sick and waking up in a room with her clothes off and Cosby wearing a robe. "It was not consensual. I was afraid to call out," she said. "When I heard the other women," she said of the other accusers, "I said 'Oh God, that is what happened to me.'"


    Butterfield read her statement about her Christmas Eve encounter with Cosby, which she's previously spoken about. "Bill Cosby continued to pursue after that incident as if nothing had happened." Butterfield alleged that Cosby offered her a role in a movie and to pay her tuition following the reported assault.


    While Allred said she didn't know the exact total of women who have accused Cosby, the two women today bring the total number of accusers who have come forward to over 50 -- there were previously 46 before Colleen Hughes, Linda Ridgeway Whitedeer and Eden Tirl came forward last week.  


    Cosby is expected to testify under oath on Oct. 9 in a lawsuit brought against him by Judy Huth. This will mark the first time the "Cosby Show" star will be ordered to give a sworn deposition in response to a complaint of sexual misconduct since the testimony he gave in a 2005 case in Pennsylvania. In that deposition, which was settled outside of court, Cosby admitted to drugging women with quaaludes. At Thursday's press conference, Allred said, "We expect the real Bill Cosby to show up, not Dr. Cliff Huxtable."

  • 08/20/15--12:39: How To Get Cheated On

  • mid

    You are almost definitely going to get cheated on at some point in your life.


    The only surefire way to prevent that from happening is to avoid dating altogether or, more specifically, to stay away from the Anthony who attended St. John Vianney High School in Holmdel, New Jersey. Otherwise, it is going to happen to you. It happens to everyone. It happened once, at least metaphorically, even to Beyoncé. The question is how to handle it.



    This already tragic situation is even trickier when you and your philandering dickhead of a significant other are famous. What to do, what to do? Should you "stand by your man," proving that you are weak and acknowledging your role in everything that went wrong? Should you leave him, asserting yourself as a strong, independent old maid who is destined to die alone? Should you immediately forget both choices and just turn to dust as a result of your clear inability to deliver sexually?


    Enter Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck and their nanny, proud Alicia Keys fan and Other Woman, Christine Ouzounian.


    There are several articles now praising Ouzounian for taking ownership of her emergence into the spotlight as Affleck's alleged adultery accomplice, celebrations of her Sydney Leathers-esque subversiveness. Caught in the hyper-version of this scenario, the options are to 1) become a hermit monk searching for Englightenment in the Mogao caves, or 2) capitalize on the publicity and become a reality star ($$$)! 


    It's a little harder to praise Ouzounian's confident seizing of that second option while acknowledging that Garner and Affleck have three kids who she was being paid to watch. But let's blithely ignore that and consider Garner's options.


    The news of Garner and Affleck's divorce broke before nanny-gate, so unfortunately it's unlikely Garner and Affleck will get back together and invite you to join them for a boozy landscape painting class, while they talk about that episode of "Dinner for Five." Still, is there a version of this scenario where Garner is not left as the apparent loser? Is there something she might have done to avoid that fate?


    Based on Jennifer Aniston's experience with her own reported cheating-cum-split 10 years ago, the next decade is not going to be so great for Garner. Poor Jen. Poor Jen(s). The tabloids just assume a stance of automatic pity for women in the fallout of infidelity, offering to help explore the heartbreak and ugliness of divorce from the perspective of her pain. It is always the wife who comes out on bottom, somehow branded as the lesser person, forever understood as a scorned woman.


    Obviously, cheating is a garbage thing to have happen to you. But it is a less garbage thing when you are the man being cheated on. Kristen Stewart was the monster when she cheated on Robert Pattinson. LeAnn Rimes will forever be a villain unless she discovers she is at risk for breast cancer and gets a mastectomy.


    Why do women have the burden of the mortification factor regardless of whether they cheat or are cheated on? Neither Garner or Aniston did anything to generate a pitying narrative. It's a bit icky that we're so capable of indulging in Ouzounian's apparent brazenness, while forcing all the shame on Garner.


    It took Aniston a decade plus a marriage to liberate herself from the albatross of rejection. But what would it have looked like if there was news of Brangelina, and then they stayed together? We would likely still feel sorry for her as a woman who couldn't "keep" a man with far more intensity than Brad was ever trashed for being unfaithful. Of course, all this phenomena is just an offshoot of the evolutionary and misogynistic idea that men are entitled to multiple partners coupled with the insistence that women must maintain a single one. But that's getting a bit academic.


    In short, the best way to be cheated on (especially if you are famous) is to not be a woman.

    When you get the opportunity to drink sugary, vaguely-alcoholic beverages and paint with a former "Bachelorette" star, the only appropriate answer is, "YES. WHEN? WE'RE IN." So that's how we found ourselves at Painting Lounge's Chelsea Studio two weeks ago, alongside Andi Dorfman. 


    We showed up after a 15-minute walk dripping sweat, hoping our carefully picked-out outfits were cute enough to mingle with a Bachelorette and her best friends ... and other media types. We identified the entrance to the "lounge" by a cluster of shiny Mylar Palm Breeze balloons. Bingo. 


    Inside, we found an immaculate Andi, clad in white jeans and a long-sleeved blouse despite the warmth of the room. Only a former Bachelorette could have the self-assurance to wear white jeans to a painting class. We were already intimidated, and still sweating profusely.



     


    Luckily, Andi didn't seem to notice our unkempt appearances -- or at least she was too much of a Georgia peach to comment on them. We sat down, untangled the equipment our podcast producer had handed us earlier that day, and got down to the business of asking questions and shoving the portable microphone in her face so she could answer them.


    "So, what's the deal with all the Palm Breeze?" Emma asked. Andi explained how much she wanted to have a housewarming party that was warm, but not in her house, and involved canned sparkling wine spritzers. We couldn't wait to get tipsy. (Being tipsy makes you a better artist, right?)


    Andi told us about her upcoming breakup-themed book, a "tongue-in-cheek diary of [her] breakup," which apparently will contain some "zingers" about her relationship with Josh Murray. She also seemed willing to laugh at herself a little bit: "My dad’s seen me make out on TV. I have no shame left." (Fair enough, girl.) 


    “I dated 26 dudes on national television, I got engaged after eight weeks, and yes it was love and I will never deny that, but at the end of the day I have to sit back and kind of chuckle at it," she told us. "Like, oh my God, I dated on reality television."



    Mission accomplished, we bundled away our aged microphone and cracked open cans of Palm Breeze, ready to relax with some stiff drinks and casual artistic activity while unobtrusively working our way into Andi's inner circle.


    Then the class began.


    Suddenly, both of us regressed to a very specific place: junior year AP classes. Our Type A, teacher's pet personalities, so long suppressed by adulthood, sprang back full force. Claire clutched her brush so tightly her hand spasmed, and utterly neglected to get tipsy on the 4.5 percent ABV of the ruby red citrus Palm Breeze she'd scored. We became obsessed with painting inside the lines, to the point of desperation. Emma has been berating herself over her lack of ability to paint in a straight line ever since. We're fairly certain even the laid-back instructor could sense our anxiety levels rising. "Don't worry if your painting doesn't look just like mine," he repeated several times, glancing meaningfully toward the two of us as we suppressed panic attacks.


    Andi and her friends may have been somewhere in the room, but our worlds had narrowed to the small bubble containing our canvases. We later confirmed that they were, indeed, sitting directly behind us. But nothing matters when you have a self-imposed task at hand. 


    Apparently, meanwhile, Andi was having a little more fun with her lipstick painting.

    When the class finally, finally ended, we put down our brushes in exhausted relief. Sure, we'd gotten so far behind we'd missed a few steps. Sure, the Senior Web Editor of OK! Magazine, who made the error of picking the seat next to us, found herself forced to assure us that our paintings did come out nicely. But looking around the room, one thing was clear: We were better at blindly following instructions than just about anyone else there. Our inner high school nerds took modest satisfaction in this victory. 



    Over at the cool kids' table, the mood was more upbeat. Andi and her friends flaunted creatively altered lipstick art and makeup unmarred by sweat rivulets even after hours of arduous painting. We grabbed a selfie with Andi, and bundled ourselves out the door as she and her friends kept the party going. We'd flown close enough to the sun for one night.

    Leave it to Matt Damon to defy Disneyland.


    Damon is one of many celebrities who frequently visit the park in Anaheim, California. His trip on Thursday included a spin on one of our favorite rides -- the Matterhorn Bobsleds -- during which he managed to stay totally dry. Because he's Matt Damon. And he's perfect. Duhh.

    Carly Rae Jepsen's slick pop tunes have made her a favorite among gay audiences, and now, the "Call Me Maybe" songstress says the admiration is mutual.


    Describing a 2013 performance at the White Party in Palm Springs, California as "one of the best times," Jepsen, 29, tells PrideSource's Chris Azzopardi that she lives for the energy she receives from her gay fans.  


    "I've always felt, when we go to wherever it might be -- a festival or something along the lines -- it's just a different kind of energy," she said. "Everyone is so joyful and you feel all of that as a performer. There's just a mutual lovefest going on for me anytime I can get in front of a crowd like that."


    Jepsen, who is currently promoting her new album, "E*MO*TION," said that she didn't expect the gay twist ending of her "Call Me Maybe" video to generate the buzz that it did in 2012. 



     "I think there was so much going on with that video and with that song that my life was sort of being flipped upside down ... it was just a nice thing to hear that it was making a positive impact, but there was no intentional motive," she said, before revealing some bad news for gay fans of the video's hunky, shirtless star: "I'm sorry to inform you that I think he's actually straight." 


    The Canadian-born performer also said that moving to the U.S. made her realize "how big of an issue" LGBT inequality is, and inspired her to become a staunch advocate. In 2013, she canceled a performance at the Boy Scouts of America's National Scout Jamboree because of the organization's controversial ban on gay participants at that time. But that's been just the tip of her advocacy work. 


    "When we got marriage equality and there was a celebration for that in New York City, it was an honor to be a part of that. I can't explain it," she said. "There are some performances that you do and you're like, "That was cool, that was fun." That one was different fun. It was so memorable and an incredible thing to be a part of."

    Britney Spears already has magical mermaid hair, but now she has a tail to match.


    The singer shared a photo on Instagram of herself dressed in a shimmering mermaid's tail while hanging poolside with her adorable sons. The performer paired her blue tail with a striped blue-and-white bikini top, and her pastel blue locks are seen cascading over her shoulders. 


    The mother of two captioned the pic "The mermaid life."

    Brit is just the latest celebrity to try a tail on for size. Kim and Kourtney Kardashian recently shared photos of their little ones, North West and Penelope Disick, donning similar mermaid outfits while on vacation in St. Barts.


    The magic of mermaids transcends age.

    Gene Simmons' wife tweeted her horror after the Los Angeles Police Department executed a search warrant at their home in Benedict Canyon Thursday. 


    The LAPD's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force "visited Mr. and Mrs. Simmons at their home to discuss a crime that may have occurred on their property last year while Mr. Simmons was away on tour with KISS," a rep for the rocker said, per NBC. 


    "Neither Mr. Simmons nor any member of his family is a person of interest in the investigation and they are cooperating fully with the investigation," the statement continued. "At this time, the police have requested that Mr. Simmons and his family not discuss the investigation publicly so as not to compromise it." 


    Shannon Simmons took to Twitter Thursday to express her disgust over the undisclosed crime. 








    Authorities did not provide further details about the case due to an ongoing investigation, according to CNN, but said  "no members of the Simmons family are suspects in the case and were extremely cooperative."

    A woman who helped authorities secure a conviction against former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle said she's "relieved" the four-and-a-half-year process is over.


    "I’m numb, I’m shocked. I’m relieved most of all," Rochelle Herman told Sarasota, Florida, ABC affiliate WWSB.


    Fogle pleaded guilty on Wednesday to traveling to engage in "unlawful commercial sexual acts" with minors and to possession of child pornography.


    Herman said she worked as an FBI informant, recording her conversations with Fogle, whom she met about 10 years ago.


    "He is a monster," she said. "My heart goes out to [the victims] and my heart goes out to the families."


     




     


    Herman revealed her identity in the WWSB interview published Wednesday. She also did an interview with the station last month, during which her name was withheld. At that time, Herman said Fogle told her numerous times that "middle school girls are hot."


    In the new interview, Herman described other incriminating comments Fogle made to her.


    "There was a time that he wanted to arrange a party with children," she said. "He would indicate exactly how to proceed with arranging the party and what he would do to gain the trust of the children and have his way."


    In documents released on Wednesday, federal prosecutors said 12 of the 14 victims in the case are minors who were secretly filmed by Russell Taylor, the former executive of Fogle's foundation to raise awareness about childhood obesity. Fogle was given some of these videos and images, prosecutors said. The other two victims are underage girls, whom Fogle allegedly traveled to have commercial sex with. 



    Fogle faces between five and 12 years in prison.


    As part of the plea agreement, Fogle will pay the 14 victims a total of $1.4 million.


    Fogle's attorney, Jeremy Margolis, said his client hopes the money will help the victims "move forward with their lives."


    "Jared also understands that he requires significant psychiatric medical treatment and counseling," Margolis said in a statement. "He has already begun that process by being extensively examined by a world-renowned expert in sexual conditions in order to chart a course to recovery. It is Jared's intent and goal to become healthy again."

     

    Margolis also said Fogle expressed "remorse" for what he's done.

     

    "Most importantly, Jared understands that he has hurt innocent people, vulnerable people, and his family," Margolis said. "He has expressed remorse to me and to his loved ones, and will, when given the opportunity, express that remorse to this court and to the people he has harmed. His intent is to spend the rest of his life making amends."

    The ice cream parlor owner and the rapper have a lot in common.


    One is a reality star, and the other is married to a reality star. One raps about all his money, the other writes books about all his money. Both are skilled at interrupting women during televised events. And both are clearly certain they are the "greatest living rock star on the planet."


    Can you tell the two apart?
