Is Kim Kardashian Pregnant?
Juice Factor: 8/10
Maybe she’s just jealous that every time Beyonce’s bloated baby rumours make top headlines everywhere from Vanity Fair to TMZ, but Kim Kardashian added fuel to the gossip mill that she might be pregnant with baby No. 2 this week. While doing an interview with Entertainment Tonight on Monday, Kanye West’s wifey and baby-mamma to North West had an interesting choice of words in response to questions from Nancy O’Dell regarding the state of her womb. “I am not pregnant — not that I know of,” she said, leaving people with more of a un-yes than a no. And it got more unclear. “I’m not. I wish I was. I’m about fifteen pounds heavier, but I’m not [pregnant].” Wait… Kim Kardashian’s gained 15 pounds? And she’s not sure if she’s pregnant, but she wants to be? Um, guys… In the meantime, we’ll keep an eye out for cryptic Instagram photos. Or is that just for Beyonce pregnancy rumours? Gawd, it’s hard to keep up!
Miley Cyrus Nude Pics Go Viral
Juice factor: 9/10
If you thought getting freaky with a foam finger on stage with Robin Thicke, starring in Terry Richardson-directed nearly-nude music video for “Wrecking Ball,” and singing about popping Molly was all Miley Cyrus had up her attention-seeking sleeve, she’s about to prove you dead wrong. Gurl doesn’t even have sleeves because she doesn’t wear shirts… or even bikini tops for that matter. All you need to do is Google “Miley Cyrus nude pics” to see Hannah Montana herself frollicking topless on the beaches of Hawaii on vacation with love interest du jour Patrick Schwarzenegger. Truth be told, we could only be shocked by Miley at this point if she did something totally crazy like buy a sweater or take a day off social media.
Lindsay Lohan Resurfaces… In A Club, No Less!
Juice Factor: 8/10
Speaking of Hollywood bad girls, the original wild child of the millenials, Lindsay Lohan, returned to the public eye, but not in something shocking like a movie or a charity mission. The one-time actress was spotted partying in Paris, just days after being hospitalized for a rare virus Chikungunya. Apparently Chikungunya didn’t get in the way of Lohan givin’ ‘er on the dancefloor until 5am. Li-Lo was apparently at a hot-ticket Parisian party called ‘Les (Art)ists’ on Monday night at a club called Le Titty Twister — fitting, given a CLEARLY Photoshopped mirror selfie the actress posted on Instagram over the weekend looking more voluptuous in the chest region than ever. Is it just us, or does the already well-endowed star look more buxom than before? A career change, perhaps?
Is Justin Bieber Dating Hailey Baldwin?
Juice Factor: 9/10
Just when you thought your brain couldn’t register any more names of celebutantes without combusting, Justin Bieber went ahead and massaged Hailey Baldwin’s shoulders while taking a dip with the hot blonde daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin AKA the least famous Baldwin brother. Justin already sparked rumours that he and Hailey are young Hollywood’s hottest item after photos of the two getting cozy with Kendall Jenner hit Instagram, as well as a pic of Hailey giving the Biebs a kiss at a Clippers game. Either way, it’s nice to see celebrities and celebutantes getting along — the Montagues and Capulets of the modern era that they are.
Taylor Swift’s Twitter & Instagram hacked by “Lizard Squad”
Juice Factor: 10/10
Taylor Swift’s Twitter and Instagram accounts were hacked yesterday, forcing the singer to take to Tumblr to reach her fanbase. How effing inconvenient. “Never a dull moment,” TayTay wrote on her Tumblr, along with the hashtag #hackersgonnahackhackhackhackhack. Although both of Swift’s hacked social media accounts were recovered 15 minutes later, the hackers — claiming to be the leaders of a group called “Lizard Squad” — had time to tweet to T-Swizzle’s 51 million Twitter followers via that starlet’s personal account. At first, the hackers merely asked Taylor’s social media fans to follow them at @lizzard and @veriuser. While an aggressive move to get followers, you’ve gotta feel dudes who head a reptile-inspired organization and really just wants to be loved the same way Taylor Swift is loved. The hackers have since claimed to have been behind high-profile hackings of Sony PlayStation and Xbox Live last year, as well as the momentary outage of both Facebook and Instagram on Monday. After regaining control of her Twitter account, Swift addressed new threats from the hackers to release a series of Taylor Swift nude pics. The No. 4 most powerful woman on Twitter tweeted, “PS any hackers saying they have ‘nudes’? Psssh you’d love that wouldn’t you! Have fun photoshopping cause you got NOTHING.” You tell ’em, TayTay.
Lance Armstrong Says He’d Do The Drugs All Over Again
Juice Factor: 9/10
Just in case you thought we’ve only been following fallen child stars and narcissistic reality celebutantes lately, fret not. We love ourselves some disgraced athletes, too. In an interview with BBC News on Monday, Lance Armstrong opened up about taking drugs in the 90s to up his performance as a competitive cyclist. “If you take me back to 1995, when doping was completely pervasive, I would probably do it again,” said the former seven-time champion of the Tour de France who’s since lost his titles. “When I made the decision, when my team made that decision, when the whole peloton made that decision, it was a bad decision and an imperfect time. But it happened. And I know what happened because of that. I know what happened to the sport, I saw its growth.” The interview is worth checking out in full if you’re interested in hearing about how everyone was doing it back then and, you know, Armstrong wouldn’t do it today because apparently he’s been reflecting.
Melissa Rivers Sues Joan Rivers’ Plastic Surgeon
Juice Factor: 10/10
It was no secret that Joan Rivers loved herself some plastic surgery. That’s why her tragic death in September at a New York Cuty endoscopy clinic was so tragic. Although the comedienne’s death was originally ruled to be the result of brain damage caused by low blood oxygen, according to New York City’s medical examiner at the time, Joan’s daughter Melissa Rivers is now suing the plastic surgery clinic. Melissa filed a lawsuit this week seeking unspecified damages. According to The Associated Press, the younger Rivers claims in the lawsuit that her mother would be alive today if it wasn’t for unauthorized medical procedures, which apparently included ignoring the medical advice of an anesthesiologist and taking selfies with the late Joan Rivers during the operation. Yikes. We’ll keep you posted on how this unfolds.
