It’s kind of weird that today’s Comey Hearing wasn’t pushed to a later date so that the Hugs Hearings could go down, because I would think that all branches of government would want to get to the bottom of why Jerry Seinfeld didn’t want to hug Kesha. But my fellow non-hugger Jerry did talk to AJ Calloway from Extra and explained why he didn’t want to touch chests with that strange blond fan.
Woe has been Mischa Barton for a while. She got shuffled off to the hospital (after she claims she got GHB’d), she had to deal with two exes trying to peddle fuck tapes starring her, she had to suffer through Dancing with the Has-Beens, her Volkswagen nearly got snatched by the repo man and she sued her mom for allegedly stealing money from her. But it looks like grey skies have cleared up for Mischa and her face is being graced by the warm, sparkly rays shooting off of her new man’s gold Rolex. E! News says that Mischa has found love, which is great if that’s your thing or whatever, but what’s even better is that her new boyfriend, James Abercrombie, may one day inherit $574 million. That sound you hear is the sound of Mischa’s creditors pounding on their keyboards while trying to find a phone number for James since Mischa has blocked them all.
According to a report from security firm ESET (via The Independent), a Russian hacking group named Turla committed digital deviousness by using Britney Spears’ Instagram page to spread malware. On February 6th, a user named asmith2155 left a comment on a picture of Britney in a bodysuit that read: “#2hot make loved to her, uupss #Hot #X.” The user was actually a Turla hacker, and the comment contained a link to a malicious Firefox extension designed to steal people’s data. Basically, it was a virus. No word on whether or not Britney responded to the hacking news like this:
Fortunately, only 17 people clicked on that link. ESET calls that number “quite low” (sorry Turla!), and thinks it might have been a test hack. Or maybe nobody wanted to learn more about asmith2155’s 2hot tips for making loved. The picture is still up, but the comment has been deleted. Those hackers might want to work a little harder on their bait next time. That comment was filled with spelling errors, nonsense hashtags, and random empty flattery. If you want more than 17 clicks, you’ve got to at least attempt to look a little different than most of the other fan comments on a Britney pic.
The 16 annual CMT Music Awards (which I’m pretty sure was also the 16th country music awards show to happen this month alone) were last night in Nashville, and no country music awards show is complete with Our Lord of Tang Tanner and Our Lady of SPF 6000 working the carpet. Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman once again showed us that a couple that middle parts their hair (and wears a wreck of an outfit) together, stays together!
Despite repeated requests for no more drama in her life, Mary J. Blige and her former manager/soon-to-be ex-husband Kendu Isaacs are still deep in the drama of a messy divorce. On the upside, she’s one step closer to her desired state of drama-free. TMZ says that Mary and Kendu have worked out a spousal support agreement.
When Mary filed for divorce about a year ago, she requested that Kendu be blocked from asking for spousal support. That request wasn’t approved, and Kendu went on to ask for almost $130,000 a month in spousal support. Kendu claimed he needed the money to maintain the lifestyle he got used to during their 13-year marriage. The court found Kendu was entitled to some money, but they also agreed that $130,000 request was pure insanity. A judge approved $30,000 a month for spousal support. Mary will also have to cut Kendu a check for $235,000 for retroactive spousal support dating back to September and his attorney fees.
Mary also got a little slap on the wrist in court. TMZ says that the court accused Mary and Kendu of living beyond their means during their marriage. That might explain how Mary ended up owing a few million dollars to the tax man several years ago.
Kendu getting only $30,000 has got to sting a little. He claimed he needed a lot of money for stuff like private chefs and personal trainers. But he can’t do that anymore on such a measly monthly stipend. He’s got to make some major spending changes, like not blowing hundreds of thousands on his mistresses. Any future girlfriends hoping to get jewelry and dinner out of Kendu better be prepared for Claire’s and a coupon special at Red Robin.
People are still asking Katy Perry about her dumb pop star fight with Taylor Swift. Katy Perry is still talking about her dumb pop star fight with Taylor Swift. And bloggers like me are still writing about it, because well, everything is Comey! Comi! Comé! today, so this is what we’re working with.
While doing Carpool Karaoke with James Corden a couple of weeks ago, Katy gave her side to her World War Zzzzzzz with Taylor. Katy confirmed that she earned herself prime real estate in Taylor’s Burn Book over backup dancers. When Katy tried to talk to Taylor about it, she got no response. Katy is ready for the stupid fight to be done, but until that day comes, she’s going to milk it for attention.
