Justin and Selena, Feud Over New Girlfriend
Juice Factor: 9/10
So, the Biebs posted 6 Instagram pictures in a row of him with his new love, Sofia Richie – and his fans just about LOST THEIR MINDS. As reported on toofab.com, the hate was so strong that Justin actually dissed all his fans by threatening to change his IG page to private. Which is really an empty threat because he’d have to wipe his 77.8 million followers first… Just sayin’, it’s simple math here. Anyways, also taking to social media, Selena Gomez, added her two cents: “If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol – it should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you.” Which incited a back and forth between the exes, arguing about who cheated on who. Then Hailey Baldwin got involved, taking to her own IG trying to support Selena. But we know that Hailey isn’t as famous as the rest of them, so she’ll try to get involved in anything she can ATM. Even if it means throwing herself at Selena Gomez. UPDATE: Late Monday night, Justin Bieber deleted his Instagram account.
Olympic Action: Fans Take to Twitter when Laurie Hernandez Is Denied Gold Medal
Juice Factor: 8/10
The Olympics cease to be a source of complete and utter drama this year as the Rio 2016 games unfold. In the latest escapade, gymnast Laurie Hernandez, of Team USA, scored 15.3333 for her routine on Monday. Rival, Sanne Wevers from the Netherlands, squeezed to the top spot with a score of 15.466. Immediately, Hernandez’s coaches asked for the judges to be examined in an appeal to reconsider their scoring. That was rejected and Hernandez remained in the Silver position. And then her fan base on Twitter went ballistic. Some of the reactions are too priceless. Her fans truly believe that she was in fact, ripped off of the Gold medal. One even claimed that the judging was not impartial. “Unfair judging!” tweeted one fan; while another wrote: “Umm excuse me that #gold belongs to @lzhernandez02#BeamFinals #Inquiry.” What to do when the whole world is watching, and tweeting. #OlympicsUnderFire

Juice Factor: 7/10
In the rivalrous world of menswear bloggers, and as TOMFW is in full swing, Narcity.com published an article listing 8 of Toronto’s Hottest Male Bloggers. Which is fine, because it’s not like the list is official or anything. However, some of the unlisted male bloggers are up in arms about not being included. One blogger took to Twitter, complaining that the “king” was not included. Does he mean himself? The guys who were on the list include: Jay Strut, Daniel Ocean, Global Garcon and Abhishek Dekate. So, who wasn’t on the list? Who’s upset? Who is on the list and doesn’t even have a blog? We’ll leave it up to you to figure that out and put 2 and 2 together. C’mon, use your detective skills! It’s not that hard. Twitter is public. Hint, hint.
Johnny Depp Chops His Finger Off
Juice Factor: Very Bloody
According to a report on TMZ, it appears that The Pirates of the Caribbean star, Johnny Depp, cut one of his fingers during a very heated argument with his ex-wife, Amber Heard. This divorce has been one of the dirtiest (and bloodiest) we’ve seen in a while in the Hollywood limelight. The latest update is no exception. Apparently, the couple had a massive argument about an alleged affair between Billy Bob Thornton and Amber Heard in March 2015 at a villa in Australia. In the midst of the anger, Depp cut off a portion of his finger, albeit accidentally. But when life gives you lemons, you dip your bloody finger in blue paint and write “Billy Bob” and “Easy Amber” on a mirror in the villa. Things are getting extremely heated, and artsy, indeed.
Kendall Jenner Confesses: “I have really bad Trypophobia”
Juice Factor: 6/10
Trypophobia, is the fear of hole and bumps in irregular clusters. In a recent blog post, the September Vogue cover model, Kendall Jenner, revealed this irrational and yet very common phobia that has plagued her for the entire duration of her life. “Things that could set me off are pancakes, honeycomb, or lotus heads (the worse!). It sounds ridiculous but so many people actually have it! I can’t even look at little holes – it gives me the worst anxiety. Who knows what’s in there???” Known to be the shyest of the clan, which really doesn’t say much as they are all pretty extroverted, Kendall is slowly accepting who she is and owning it. Holes and all!
Blind Item: Celebrity Stylist Duo Split, Causes Unknown.
Juice Factor: 9/10
One of Toronto’s hottest hair salons has been the recent source of gossip. Just last week in a heartfelt post, one of the co-owners took to Instagram to bid farewell to the salon he helped to build over 8 years. The celebrity hair stylist claims that he’s moving in a solo direction to explore other avenues and opportunities. However, the spirit inside the salon is not as jovial. Sources say that there was a bit of confusion and general disbelief amongst employees. The true cause remains unknown, only various hypotheses are circulating as the news is still fresh.
