Before the unspeakable is spoken, let’s preface this “news” with a huge ALLEGEDLY. According to Twitter and The Mirror, the good girl turned bad Rihanna was recently seen at the Playboy mansion kissing no other than (one of the few bachelors left in Hollywood) Leonardo DiCaprio.

The first reports of the shocking kiss were seen on Twitter, although the original tweet was deleted.

The 87 Annual Academy Awards nominations are out meaning only one thing: Hollywood’s most important night is fast approaching. Thursday the Oscar nominations were announced by actor Chris Pine, filmmakers Alfonso Cuaron and J.J. Abrams, and Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs to the joy of movie lovers nationwide.

This year’s biggest bets are “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “Birdman,” which led the pack of worthy films with nine nods each.

Huge names like Bradley Cooper and Julianne Moore are in the running for Best Actor and Best Actress in their respective categories along with “Big Hero 6” and “The Boxtrolls” receiving nominations for Best Animated Feature Film.

He’s a mastermind in the film industry, and now he may be bringing that same genius to a much smaller screen. Woody Allen has signed on to write and direct his first-ever television series, and it will be available to stream on Amazon’s Prime Instant Video. No details have been released on the half-hour series except that it is expected to premiere in 2016.

Woody Allen, whose major filmmaking credits have included the celebrated films “Annie Hall” and “Manhattan” said in a statement: “I don’t know how I got into this. I have no ideas and I’m not sure where to begin.”

With that, it should be interesting to see how the filmmaker brings his witty, unique and at times quirky style to a series.

As one awards show begins its buzz, another finished its. The 72nd Golden Globes Awards awarded its top prizes to the film “Boyhood,” Michael Keaton for his performance in “Birdman,” and Eddie Redmayne in “The Theory of Everything.”

This year’s ceremony marked a comparable match to next month’s Academy Awards, with many believing that the same films and stars should expect another win very, very soon.

Nobody saw it coming.  2 Chainz. Nancy Grace. Marijuana? This week rapper 2 Chainz, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, made an appearance on Nancy Grace’s show to speak out in favor of legalizing marijuana in all 50 states.

The rapper made some very valid points, noting the benefits of legalizing the drug, including taxes helping the economy and assistance with anxiety.

Its hard to say whether he won the debate with Grace, but that didn’t stop 2 Chainz from calling out his next opponent, Bill O’Reilly.

This is what happens when you give Jamie Lynn Spears a knife; she breaks up a fight. Earlier this month, TMZ reported that Britney Spears’ younger sister broke up a fight at a restaurant with a knife, and apparently those reports were true. In the video below, Spears is seen inside of a Pita Pit restaurant rushing to her friend’s aid after being hit with a bottle. Spears waste no time in going behind the counter, picking up a giant knife and brandishing it. Take a look below.
