Britney Spears “Ready For Marriage” Claim Is Fake News

A new report from In Touch alleges Britney Spears is ready to marry Sam Asghari, but according to the magazine, the model “isn’t on the same page” as the singer. Gossip Copcan correct this bogus claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

The outlet blares in a misleading headline, “Sam Warns Britney: I’m Not Ready For Marriage.” In the piece, a so-called “source” tells the publication, “Sam told her that he feels their relationship has moved way too quickly. He’s only 23 and isn’t ready for the next step yet.” The magazine’s supposed insider goes on to claim Spears was “very upset” when Asghari broke the news. “Sam loves Britney. It’s not that he doesn’t want to be with her. He just needs some time to grow up,” concludes the tabloid’s tipster.

HollywoodLife has published a new report claiming to exclusively know all about Angelina Jolie’s dating plans, but the details of the story are entirely bogus. Gossip Copcan expose this fake news.

“Angelina Jolie: When She’ll Be Ready For A Serious Relationship After Brad Pitt Split,” reads a new headline on the repeatedly discredited website. The accompanying article purports to have “the scoop” on the status of the actress’s love life in the wake of her divorce. A supposed “source” tells the webloid, “Angelina has been pretty much a full-time mom, which she loves. Angelina is really enjoying being single again, and says she is in no hurry to get into a serious relationship with anybody.”

Celebrities React: Donald Trump, CNN Wrestle Video

Celebrities are reacting to Donald Trump tweeting on Sunday morning a 28-second video of him wrestling to the ground a person with the CNN logo over his head, along with the caption, “#FraudNewsCNN #FNN.” The metaphor appears to be that the president is taking down CNN, with whom he’s long sparred and called “fake news.” The actual clip, which has been modified with the CNN logo, dates back to an appearance Trump made at Wrestlemania in 2007, during which he tackled and beat up WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon. Now Hollywood stars are sharing their reactions to the footage.

Seth Rogen tweeted, “Remember the time the president photoshopped the logo of a news company on a person and then tweeted a vid of him fake wrestling that logo?” Albert Brooks jokingly cautioned, “Don’t be horrified by CNN wrestling tweet, it’s just practice. He’s scheduled to wrestle Putin for control of the world.” And Cher pointed out, “The irony in Trump calling CNN fake while using a clip of him pretending to beat someone up in a NOT AT ALL REAL FIGHT in a WWE match.”

“Is Jennifer Lopez’ BUTT FAKE???? New Pics Suggest That J.LO… May Have BOUGHT HER BOOTY!! Can A Natural Booty… BEND LIKE THAT??” asks MediaTakeOut.

MTO can’t get basic details right, big or small.

A 6-Year-Old Will Give You Chills Performing Whitney Houston Classic

God, I miss the Whitney Houston Classic songs. It’s been a while since I had a lovely evening with wine and her beautiful voice. This kid gave me chills and reminded me of the good times when we all celebrated the love and life of the amazing singer.

He is Jurabek Juraev coming from Uzbekistan. He has the honor to sing “I will Always Love You” by her majesty. You will be surprised of how well she does it. I always love these young talents who can perform so well. I can’t miss any talent show happening in our country.

Watching them is interesting. You are eager to see who is going to be the next star.

This boy should be invited on Ellen or something like that. His angel voice performed this Whitney Houston classic like no one before.

And he is only six years old. Can you imagine?

I wasn’t able to whistle when I was six. Kids these days are singing like they’ve been doing that for many years.

Incredible. There is no doubt this boy has a great future and singing career in front of him.

Take a look at this boy and start admiring!

I just don’t like those finesses with his voice. It messes with the whole song.

Don’t forget to share this young talent with all of your friends. They must love this Whitney Houston classic.

Celebrities React: Donald Trump Tax Returns Revealed By Rachel Maddow

Rachel-Maddow-Trump-Tax-Returns-300x168

Celebrities are reacting to Rachel Maddow revealing Donald Trump‘s tax returns. See reaction tweets from Hollywood stars below. On Tuesday night, Maddow tweeted, “BREAKING: We’ve got Trump tax returns. Tonight, 9pm ET. MSNBC. (Seriously).” She went on to write, “What we’ve got is from 2005… the President’s 1040 form… details to come tonight 9PM ET, MSNBC.” Immediately, celebs began responding on Twitter with a mix of curiosity and excitement.

Sophia Bush, for instance, exclaimed, “HOLY. SH*T. Let it all fall down.” Kathy Griffin reacted, “WHAT????? #Trumprussia #indivisible #resist #womensmarch #lgbt.” And Alyssa Milano went with, “ummmmmmm…..”

“Oh, this is delightful,” Chrissy Teigen tweeted, going on to guess Trump was “furiously trying to ban television right now.” Don Cheadle warned, “Don’t play with me, @maddow.” Patton Oswalt similarly said, “Holy SHI*. This better not be an empty tease. Wow…”

Come show time, Maddow said she had a “portion” of Trump’s federal return after it was “turned over” to a reporter. She credited that journalist, David K. Johnston, for obtaining the document, but admitted she did not know why it “surfaced.” The MSNBC host went on to recount how the president, then a candidate, refused to release his returns during his campaign, blaming it on an audit. “It ought to give you pause that his explanations have never made any factual sense,” Maddow insisted.

She then connected Trump to a Russian ogliarch, who paid him substantial money for a luxury home, raised questions about the recent U.S. attorney firings, brought up Michael Flynn’s firing, discussed the “unrelenting demand” to see the president’s tax returns, and said such “pressure” will never cease until more documents like this are leaked. As Maddow spoke non-stop, Rose McGowan tweeted, “Go @Maddow go.” Waiting for the big moment, Norm MacDonald said, “She is about to go through a rich guy’s tax returns. This should be powerful television.” Billy Eichner told followers, “Maddow knows more than you do times 10 so sit down and listen for a change SMDH.”

Maddow ultimately revealed that the 2005 tax form showed Trump paid $38 million in taxes, took a write-down of $103 million, and made more than $150 million. She also noted the White House, while confirming the authenticity of the return, released a statement ridiculing the “dishonest media” for running with the information and accusing the media of published the form illegally. Maddow stressed that there was nothing illegal about sharing it and nothing fake about her or her program. And Johnston, who appeared on the show live, said Trump essentially got a tax “discount” by the way he filed, and pointed out that the document doesn’t reveal the sources of his money. He also questioned whether it was the president himself who mailed it to him.

Teigen wasn’t satisfied. “Dammit. 2 pages!? give me the pee video. #teampeevideo,” she tweeted. Ava DuVernay thought, “Whatever #RachelMaddow has or doesn’t simply highlights that Trump’s tax release refusal has been a massive middle finger to public trust.” Griffin also tweeted to Johnston, “Thank you 4 doing your job. Deplorables & bots losing their sh*t tonight. @msnbc #Trumprussia.”

“Geraldo in the vault found more. But this is great theater,” opined Chris Harrison. Kal Penn admitted, “I got bored w the tax return things and have been watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills the last 20 mins and I like it.” Eichner argued, “Agree tonight was overhyped but @maddow is brilliant & digs into Trump’s corruption every night from every angle in a way few on TV do.”

Gabrielle Union quoted Newsweek reporter Kurt Eichenwald‏ saying, “For people who don’t get it: Trumps reported income for 2005 shows he has been lying about his net worth for years,” and wrote, “This… and so much more.” And when columnist Shaun King said, “I absolutely believe Trump released this tax return himself. Anything to distract people from the countless other scandals he’s mired in,” Bush wrote “Same. 100 [percent].”

‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Whips Past $300M At Worldwide Box Office

Fifty Shades Darker Box Office
Universal

Universal PicturesFifty Shades Darker has roped a pair of new milestones, whipping past $200M at the international box office and $300M globally. Through Thursday, the sequel to 2015 smash S&M love story Fifty Shades of Grey has grossed $207.8M overseas and $303.7M worldwide. Domestically, there’s $95.9M in the play room through yesterday.

The James Foley-helmed erotic noir dominated both international and worldwide box office across its first two weeks. Offshore, it opened No. 1 in 51 territories, including Australia, France, Russia, Germany, Italy, Spain and Brazil. It’s currently at play in 59.

Starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, the lip-biter’s top-grossing markets currently are the UK at $23.1M, Germany with $22.7M, France at $17.6M, Brazil with $15.8M and Italy at $14.2M.

Box Office: ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Is a Valentine’s Day Dominatrix With $11M


Doane Gregory/Universal Studios

The erotic, S&M-laced sequel scored one of the top grosses of all time for when the sweethearts’ holiday falls on a weekday.

Fifty Shades Darker was a huge Valentine’s Day winner at the box office, earning $11 million on Tuesday. That was more than double the next closest film, The Lego Batman Movie ($5 million). And it’s one of the best showings of all time for when the sweethearts’ holiday falls on a weekday, almost matching record-holder The Vow, which pulled in $11.5 million on Valentine’s Day in 2012, also a Tuesday.

From Universal and based on E.L. James’ S&M book series, Fifty Shades Darker has earned $61.5 million in its first five days, slightly ahead of the $60.8 million grossed by Warner Bros.’ Lego Batman (both films debuted in North America on Feb. 10).

Fifty Shades Darker, however, continues to pace behind Fifty Shades of Grey, which earned $98.5 million in its first five days. The first movie had the advantage of opening over Presidents Day weekend in 2014, when Valentine’s Day fell on a Saturday.

Universal is counting on Fifty Shades Darker being a slower burn than Fifty Shades of Grey, which dropped a steep 74 percent in its second weekend.

Lionsgate also touted La La Land as a Valentine’s Day destination. The musical dramedy placed No. 6 with $1.5 million, a big jump over the $522,534 earned on Monday. The Oscar front-runner has earned nearly $128 million domestically and north of $300 million worldwide.

Generally speaking, a number of films saw a boost. John Wick: Chapter 2 placed No. 3 behind Fifty Shades Darker and Lego Batman with $4.8 million for a five-day domestic total of $37.9 million. M. Night Syhamalan’s Split followed with $2 million for a domestic total of $115.2 million, while box-office hit Hidden Figures rounded out the top five with $1.6 million for a $133.8 million cume in North America.

50 Shades Sex Is More Uncomfortable Than We Thought


PHOTO: COURTESY OF UNIVERSAL PICTURES.

If you thought the sex in Fifty Shades Darker was hot, know that it didn’t come without some uncomfortable moments. According to makeup department head Evelyne Noraz, for most of the BDSM scenes, Dakota Johnson was covered head to toe in body foundation — which sounds a little like our own version of masochism, but maybe that’s just us.

The reason? To give her that bedroom glow — and to cover her five, count ’em, five tattoos on her neck, ear, shoulders, arm, and foot. (Rumor has it, Johnson might have even more ink than that.)

For scenes without a body double, Erez mixed MAC Face and Body foundation in N3, C2, and C3 with lotion and rubbed it all over Johnson. She then followed up with Era aerosol spray foundation for further tattoo coverage. “I used shades Y3, R2, and R4, lightly sprayed in layers and buffed with big, dry puff,” she reveals.

Jamie Dornan had to wear some body makeup, too — and how they banged in white sheets is just another one of Hollywood’s great mysteries.

And while Johnson’s skin and body certainly look amazing, head-to-toe latex honestly sounds preferable. But there is one takeaway from all this: if you’re looking for a good, full-coverage foundation that will last through anything — these sound like your best bet.

Click ahead to see all of Johnson’s tattoos that were covered for the film.

Johnson has four tats on her back, and one on her neck that reads “amor” — or “love” in Spanish.

We’d guess even this tiny, partially-hidden ink behind her ear was painstakingly camouflaged.

Johnson’s foot tattoo reads “look at the moon” — and is accented with tiny stars.

Her inner arm tattoo is, by far, the biggest — and we’d guess the biggest challenge to cover. It reads “acta non verba,” a Latin phrase that loosely translates to “actions not words.”

‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Valentine’s Day Climax At $10M+ – Box Office Update

fifty shades darker
Universal

2nd UPDATE, 6:01 PM: Christian Grey isn’t as big as many expected, but he’s large enough: Universal’s Fifty Shades Darker per early evening estimates looks to rake in between $10M-$10.8M on Valentine’s Day, a midweek holiday haul that still fills rival distribution chiefs with envy. That figure is close to a 170% spike over yesterday’s $3.9M and reps 23% of Fifty Shades Darker‘s $46.6M first weekend on the high end. Total cume by end of today for the sequel will reside at $60M-plus.

LEGO BATMAN
Warner Bros

In addition, last weekend’s other wide entries aren’t being overlooked today: Warner Bros’ The Lego Batman Movie is expected to ring up an estimated $5M-$5.5M taking its five-day cume to $61.2M at the high end, while Lionsgate/Summit’s John Wick: Chapter 2 is gunning for $4M-$4.5M for a running cume by EOD of $37.6M.

Lego Batman may have come apart today in the face of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, but he’ll build himself back up again as he’s looking at a second weekend of $31M, -42%. B.O. prognosticators think Fifty Shades Darker will take a tumble like its 2015 predecessor Fifty Shades of Grey, -65% in its second weekend for $16.3M (Shades fell 74% for $22.2M) — but then again, there’s some great word-of-mouth around this titillating sequel.

1st UPDATE, 7:57AM: Universal’s Fifty Shades Darker refused to submit to No. 2 yesterday, earning an estimated $3.9 million, which is $400K higher than what the industry was expecting. Current cume for the sequel stands at $50.6M.

However, on Valentine’s Day today, the James Foley-directed movie is projected to post orgasmic sales with many seeing $12M-plus.

A double-digit take for the E.L. James sequel is completely within reach: The last time Valentine’s Day fell on a Tuesday was in 2012, and that saw another female-skewing title, The Vow, embracing $11.6M. That daily take repped 28% of the pic’s then-$41M opening weekend. Another reason why many expect a big day for Fifty Shades Darker is that a bulk of its advance tickets sales (which have been outpacing The Lego Batman Movie by 2-to-1) are for today.

Two years ago, the lovers’ holiday fell on a Saturday, and goosed Fifty Shades Of Grey‘s second-day take by 21% versus Friday with $36.8M. That’s unprecedented considering that female-skewing pics are typically frontloaded. The first installment also pulled in more couples on Valentine’s Day, while opening day was largely comprised of women.

It comes as no surprise to see decent business for Fifty Shades Darker during the weekdays: It’s an older adult-skewing title (Screen Engine/ComScore’s PostTrak reports 77% females, 70% over 25), and that crowd also prefers to dodge weekend crowds at the multiplex. Over the weekend, PostTrak observed that packs of women turned out in bulk over couples: 50% went with friends, while 36% brought a date.

Women, of course, love this movie more than men: On CinemaScore, the ladies gaveFifty Shades Darker an A-, while men slapped it with a B-. Ditto on PostTrak: Women gave Christian Grey an 82% positive to guys’ 66%.

RelishMix reports that hashtags for #FiftyShades, #FiftyShadeDarker along with #FiftyShadesOfGrey surged to a very strong 23.7K-plus per day over the weekend. That outstripped  #LegoBatman at 3.9K per day. Daily Facebook page likes are immense at 81K.  And, the daily video views on YouTube – driven by Taylor Swift/Zayn’s hit, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” are averaging 645K and peaking at over 3M views per day. Also, Darker’s video viral rate is 21:1 which is on par with what most superhero movie trailers generate. The sequel’s social star is pop singer Rita Ora who counts 22.7M followers across FB, Twitter and Instagram. In regards to the social conversation, Relish Mix says “fans are beaming about how Darker surpassed their expectations having seen the movie with their husbands and boyfriends in many cases. They’re also committing to see version three in the franchise. Many are calling out specific shots, loving the apartment as well as moments in the book that they wanted in the film.”
