This week the craziest, most uneventful showdown in celebrity history happened, a movie trailer is still a big deal, and an odd couple pair up for an album.
In the least eventful showdown of the century, singer Justin Bieber, 20, and actor Orlando Bloom, 37, got into an altercation on Wednesday at Cipriani in Ibiza. The so-called fight involved Bloom throwing a missed punch at Bieber before a group of people stepped between the two, with Bieber eventually leaving the restaurant and taunting Bloom by saying, “She was good.”
The lady that Bieber was referring to may have been Bloom’s ex-girlfriend Victoria Secret supermodel Miranda Kerr, whom the actor shares a child with. Rumors have whirled around Bieber dating Bloom’s ex while other rumors have popped up that Bloom may have dated Selena Gomez, Bieber’s ex-girlfriend.
Number never lie. In less than a week, the “Fifty Shades of Grey” trailer has become the most-watched movie trailer of 2014 with a little over 19 million views on YouTube currently. The trailer debuted to great fanfare last week with many excited to see the theatrical portrayals of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele played by Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson respectively.
With the number of views the trailer, the studio can safely assume they have the next biggest franchise in the world.
An odd couple may actually be a match made I heaven as Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett announced that they will be releasing a jazz album in the fall of 2014 titled “Cheek to Cheek.” The 28-year old pop star and 87-year old jazz singer have worked together before on Bennett’s Grammy-winning, platinum-selling album “Duets II,” so apparently the two have caught on to something.
For Gaga, singing jazz comes much easier than pop. “You know, it’s funny, but jazz comes a little more comfortable for me than pop music, than R&B music,” Gaga said in an interview Monday. “I’ve sang jazz since I was 13 years old, which is kind of like my little secret that Tony found out. So this is almost easier for me than anything else.”
As the seasons change, so do the most pop tween boy bands. As One Direction exits puberty, a new boy band enters the hearts of young girls everywhere. 5 Seconds of Summer, an Australian pop-punk boy band, recently announced their 2015 North American tour dates, immediately unleashing mayhem upon ticket vendors and creating a new fandom for young girls to follow.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has landed in some legal trouble after being arrested July 15 for fighting in his family-owned tanning salon Boca Tanning. The “Jersey Shore” stare posted his $500 bail in July and agreed to a plea deal in which he will attend mandatory anger management courses. If Sorrentino successfully completes the required courses, his charges will be downgraded from the simple assault charge he currently has.
