Jeremy Piven Wants to take a lie detector test to prove allegations against him are false

In an attempt to clear his name, Jeremy Piven is offering to take a lie detector test to prove the recent allegations of sexual assault are not true.

Piven has been accused by three different women of various offenses and he’s adamant that none of these things ever happened. Like most celebrities do these days, he decided to share a statement via social media

I think Piven and all of those claiming they’re being wrongly accused should take a lie detector test! If they didn’t do it and are telling the truth, why not? Of course people will argue the validity and accuracy, but if someone passes a lie detector test saying they didn’t assault someone, that works for me.

Would Piven passing a lie detector test prove his innocence?

Eminem drops new single featuring Beyonce

Guess who’s back? Back again? Shady’s back. Tell a friend…

Eminem dropped an emotional single this morning featuring none other than Queen B.

Walk on Water, the first single from Em’s upcoming album Revival is a somber song about trying and failing to meet expectations. Rick Rubin produced the track with Eminem sharing writing credits with Skylar Gray and Beyonce.

Like all tracks from Eminem, Walk on Water is brutally honest with lyrics exposing the rappers anxiety and insecurity that only someone whose been in the game as long as him could deliver. Beyonce’s hook is simple and understated, something we rarely hear from her. Overall, I like the song but I’m not sure it has the punch of Love the Way you Lie or Not Afraid.

What do you think?

 

Anderson Easts slams Garth Brooks for lip-syncing at the CMA’s

Miranda Lambert‘s boyfriend Anderson East just slammed Garth Brooks in a passionate Instagram post. In case you missed the Country Music Association Awards Monday night (you didn’t miss much), I’ll breakdown why East is so upset.

Brooks (who won the coveted Entertainer of the Year award) performed Ask Me How I Know during the broadcast. In a shocking move for country music fans, he lip-synced the awkward performance. To his credit, he admitted to lip-syncing offering the following explanation:

“We’re in the middle of 12 shows in 10 days,” Brooks said. “Not 10 shows in 12 days, 12 shows in 10 days. We did a game-time call on whether to sing the track or lip-sync, and decided to lip sync.”

The singer continued, “The voice just isn’t there anymore, and you want to represent country music as best you can.”

Anderson East wasn’t having it:

Here’s a clip of the performance:

I COMPLETELY agree with East. It’s not like Brooks was doing heavy dance choreography or something. If he can’t sing live for a few minutes at an awards show, then he shouldn’t be doing it. To add insult to injury, he then wins Entertainer of the Year!!

So country music give the Entertainer of the Year award to the only act of the night who lip-synced? Not a good look CMA’s.

*It’s worth noting, it’s next to impossible to find a working clip of the lip sync. Someone’s doing damage control.

 

Song of the day

Throwback Thursday

Caribbean Queen – Billy Ocean

Billy Ocean hit number one and won a Grammy with this hit from 1984. Ocean became the first British singer to win a Grammy for Best R&B Male Vocal. Although he had other hits like Suddenly and When the Going Gets Tough, Caribbean Queen will always be my favorite. It’s simply awesome:

Mean Tweets – Country Edition #3

In honor of the CMA’s, the newest Mean Tweets premiered on Jimmu Kimmel last night. Some of these are so brutal, but I can’t help but laugh:

Twitter can be so mean! I’m not sure I could laugh it off if I was in their shoes. I’d probably be really hurt and defensive. How about you?

Christopher Plummer replacing Kevin Spacey in All the Money in the World

Kevin Spacey‘s fall from grace continues as he’s been completely cut out of Ridley Scott‘s All the Money in the World. Spacey’s parts will be reshot with the legendery Christopher Plummer stepping in.

The film is still set to be released on December 22nd. Co-stars Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams agree with the decision and will begin shooting with Plummer immediately.

Regardless of the allegations against Spacey, Christopher Plummer is an upgrade!

Check out the trailer below:

CMA’s Best and Worst Dressed

Did you watch the CMA’s last night? Country’s biggest night had the stars going all out on the red carpet. It worked for some, but others may want to fire their stylists!

Best Dressed

Danielle Bradbury

The Voice alum looked flawless in a sexy, red gown. Her natural hair and makeup perfectly complement the statement dress. She looked beautiful, young and fresh.

Kellie Pickler

Kellie has gone from hot mess to classy lady the last few years hasn’t she? Covering up a bit looks good on her. I love the color grading and feather details.

Luke Bryan

Country guys tend to have a flashy, and honestly quite tacky, red carpet style. Luke Bryan thankfully doesn’t fit that stereotype. He looked handsome in a classic navy suit. Simple elegance goes a long way.

Michelle Monaghan

The actress took a big chance with this skin baring jumpsuit and it paid off. This look may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but for an actress at a country music awards show, I think it’s fun!

Karlie Kloss

It’s easy for models to look good on the red carpet and Kloss is no exception. I love the cutout and beading detail on this gown. I miss her natural blonde hair, the platinum is a little harsh with her skintone. (She still looks great though.)

Lea Michele

This dress has a lot going on, but it works on Lea! The simple hair and makeup complement her fun and flirty frock. This is the best she’s looked in a long time.

Chris Lane

Lane keeps it simple in a classic black ensemble. His shoes have fun detail distinguishing him from the rest, but they do so in a classy and understated way. I love a man in black.

Worst Dressed

Carrie Underwood

Is that Carrie or Claire Underwood?!? The CMA host looks more like a first lady than a country star in this blue off the shoulder dress. I don’t hate it, but I think it’s completely off the mark for the occasion. This would be nice at the Kennedy Center Honors, not the CMA’s.

Keith Urban

I don’t know what’s worse? The grungy hair? The see through shirt? The glittery suit? The clunky shoes? Keith is hot mess!! He needs a long bath and a total makeover.

Pink

Is she wearing a wedding dress? WTF is this supposed to be? In any case, she’s drowning in fabric and looks terrible. It’s the wrong choice for the CMA’s.

Dustin Lynch

The fit is nice, but he looks like a walking disco ball. It’s way too much. In a more subdued fabric, he would’ve been on the other side of coin.

Maren Morris

No! No! No! The fit and cut is so confusing, I honestly thought it was a jumpsuit at first. Who designed this?

Lauren Alaina

Lauren looks uncomfortable. She must know her dress is terrible. The color is so matronly it looks like something a slutty Golden Girl would wear.

Drake White

I guess Drake decided to wear his Lynyrd Skynyrd halloween costume to the CMA’s. Probably not the best idea.

Faith Hill

So close, but that huge ruffle is eating her face. Faith is so pretty and looks good, but that ruffle detail completely ruins what would’ve been a best dressed look.

Are my picks right? Who do you think looked the best and worst?

 

 

 

 

The Post trailer

The trailer for Stephen Spielberg’s The Post was released last night. The film starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, tells the story of The Washington Post’s publishing of the Pentagon Papers.

Streep plays America’s first female newspaper publisher, Katharine Graham, who made the difficult decision to support the Post’s then-editor Ben Bradlee. The movie marks the first time Hollywood heavyweights Hanks, Streep and Spielberg have worked together.

If this isn’t Oscar bait, I don’t know what is:

Charlie Sheen reportedly raped Corey Haim

In a month of shocking celebrity allegations (Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, etc.), this is perhaps the most scandalous. It’s well known in the entertainment industry that former child star Corey Haim was sexually assaulted a number of times by a “Hollywood mogul”. Haim who tragically died in 2010 never publicly named names but did confirm he was a victim of sexual abuse.

His best friend and former co-star Corey Feldman has been threatening to name names the past few years but has remained quiet for fear of retaliation. Today, actor Dominick Brascia revealed that Haim told him Charlie Sheen preyed on him while they two were filming Lucas. Haim was just 13 at the time (Sheen was 19).

Brascia said “He told me they smoked pot and had sex. He said they had anal sex. Haim said after it happened, Sheen became very cold and rejected him. When Corey wanted to fool around again, Charlie was not interested.”

Another source said “Corey was so confused by the sexual encounter he believed, like so many victims, he was ‘in love’ with his abuser.”

Sheen later spoke ill of Haim telling Brascia “I just don’t like that little a**hole. I hate that a**hole. Get him out of here. He’s a freaking jerk.”

These explosive claims match up with Feldman’s account of things in his 2013 memoir where he stated “At some point during the filming of ‘Lucas,’ Haim explained an adult male convinced him it was perfectly normal for older men and younger boys in the business to have sexual relations, that it was ‘what all guys do.’”

Feldman also had this to say in a 2011 interview when asked about Sheen: “I’m not a huge fan of Charlie Sheen…especially the way he’s affected other people that I know.”

Sheen isn’t a standup guy by any means, so is this really that hard to believe?? I for one believe victims not documented abusers. Look at the picture below. Haim was a child. Sheen was an adult. It’s disgusting and disturbing on so many levels.

This stuff is still going on in Hollywood and child actors are being abused and preyed on today. Parents need to be really careful about putting their children in the industry. Charlie Sheen is from a connected Hollywood family, accusing him would’ve ruined Haim’s career and met nothing for Sheen.

What do you think of these new claims??? Did Charlie Sheen really rape Corey Haim? Sound off in the comments.
