Mariah Carey’s 2017 didn’t start how she imagined at all. After her “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” performance fiasco, she mentioned that Dick Clark Productions set her up to fail. And now they’re firing back.
Sofia Vergara is not happy with Venus Concept, a beauty company. Vergara filed a lawsuit against the company for using her images to promote their products around the world and not getting a dime from it! The actresses going rate for endorsing a beauty product is $15 million and that’s how much she’s suing for.
Adele sold another 363,000 copies of “25” in its sixth week, which means she’s now sold over 7.4 million copies in the U.S. alone since its release in November. It also sold more copies in a calendar year than any album since 2004, when Usher’s “Confessions” album sold just under 8 million. And it’s the first album to sell more than 300,000 copies in each of its first six weeks since 2001, when the Creed album“Weathered” did it.
He won an Emmy portraying a high school student on “Glee” — and collected scores of sick sexual images of kids still in grammar school, authorities say. Mark Salling, 33, was busted on child pornography charges after a Tuesday morning raid by Los Angeles cops who used a battering ram to enter the suspect’s home, cops said.
“I would imagine that would surprise anybody,” said Lt. Andrea Grossman of the LAPD Internet crimes against children task force. Salling ignored repeated knocks on the door before the cops bashed their way in around 7 a.m.
“There were more than 100 (images),” said Grossman, adding they included “disturbing” pictures of prepubescent children.
The actor’s ex-girlfriend pointed authorities to images on his computer showing young girls under the age of 10 engaging in sexual activities, TMZ reported, citing law enforcement sources.
Grossman confirmed that other electronic devices were taken from the home for further examination.
The discovery was enough for an arrest, and cops — armed with a search warrant — seized other electronic devices that will be scoured for additional evidence, she said. A source said a confidential informant pointed investigators toward Salling, who was among the hit show’s original cast when “Glee” debuted on Fox in 2009.
Federal charges, like those brought against sex-crazed “Subway” spokesman Jared Fogle, were a possibility as the probe continued. Fogle was sentenced last month to more than 15 years in prison.
Salling joined the cast of “Glee” as bad boy Puck in the hit Fox TV show’s debut season in 2009.
Residents of the rural neighborhood were shocked. “It’s so wrong,” said neighbor Robyn Phipps, 47, as she rode past on her horse. “There are kids everywhere around here.”
Salling, freed on $20,000 bail, played Mohawk-wearing bad-boy Noah (Puck) Puckerman on the popular musical-comedy.
It was a rough 2015 for the alleged perv. “Glee” went off the air this year after six successful seasons. And he was ordered to pay $2.7 million to former girlfriend Roxanne Gorzela after he was accused in a sexual battery lawsuit.
New Year’s Eve is a time for celebration, renewal and, often times disappointment, at least according to Jennifer Lawrence. The Hunger Games star toldGraham Norton and fellow Oscar-winning guestEddie Redmayne during a pre-taped appearance onThe Graham Norton Show to air New Year’s Eve that her final night of the year is typically nothing like the movies.
“I really hate it,” Lawrence, 25, says. “I’ve never had a good one – everyone’s chasing a good time and it’s always a disappointment. I plan on doing nothing and then if something lands in my lap, but I always end up drunk and disappointed. Drunk and Disappointed should be the title of my memoir!” she adds jokingly.
The Joy star also got candid about what sometimes happens when she’s feeling less than thrilled. “I am a puker,” Lawrence reveals. “When I get stressed and exhausted I just vomit. I was driving with my publicist the other day and had to roll down the window and I puked all down the side of the car. It was in front of all the paparazzi – I painted New York!”
Lawrence also admitted to puking at an Oscar party Madonnahosted last year – and it turns out she wasn’t alone. “This is something I have never admitted to the world, but I puked at Madonna’s party too!” Redmayne tells Lawrence.
