Sharon Osbourne Calls U2 'Middle Age Political Groupies' with 'Mediocre' Music
It's safe to say Sharon Osbourne is not happy about the new U2 album being downloaded automatically onto iPhone users' phones. The notoriously outspoken The Talk host took to her Twitter Monday to air her thoughts on the surprising music move, in which instead of giving users the option to download U2's new album for free, Songs of Innocence was just put into everyone's iTunes libraries as an already "purchased" album. Sharon, 61, didn't hold back.
John Travolta Addresses Gay Rumors, Pending Lawsuit By an Alleged Former Lover
In a new interview with The Daily Beast, John Travolta, 60, opens up about rumors that he's gay -- specifically a lawsuit from a man who alleged he was Travolta's former pilot, and that the two were engaged in a relationship that was more than professional. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Douglas Gotterba -- who worked for John Travolta's aircraft company Alto in the '80s -- will get the opportunity to argue in a lawsuit that he holds no confidentiality duties to the Grease actor, and is therefore free to write a book he’s allegedly been planning. "This is every celebrity's Achilles heel. It's just about people wanting money," Travolta says about the lawsuit. "That’s all. It happens on many levels."
Kim Kardashian Defends Kanye West After Wheelchair 'Lies'
Kim Kardashian has her man's back. Her outspoken husband Kanye West made headlines over the weekend when he allegedly asked wheelchair-bound audience members to stand up during his Sydney, Australia show --but his wife took to Instagram on Monday to address these "frustrating" reports. Posting some concert footage, the 33-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star wrote: "What an amazing Australian tour! It's frustrating that something so awesome could be clouded by lies in the media. Kanye never asked anyone in a wheelchair to stand up & the audience videos show that. He asked for everyone to stand up & dance UNLESS they were in a wheelchair. #JustWantedEveryoneToHaveAFunNight #TheMediaTwistsThings" Something tells us those hashtags won't be trending.
