Katy Perry Confirms 'Mean Girls' Tweet was Aimed at Taylor Swift

30 January 2015 8:25 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

"For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not," Swift, 25, said. "She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life »

Inside the Commons – review: a peek behind Westminster’s crumbling facade

29 January 2015 10:06 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Michael Cockerell’s documentary about the ‘mother of all parliaments’ gets up close with the great and good of British politics – and it isn’t pretty

There is precious little in Michael Cockerell’s documentary about the House of Commons to encourage Russell Brand, should he watch it, to cast his vote after all.

Cockerell portrays a “mother of all parliaments” in which MPs vote against their instincts to avoid ending up in their whips’ black books, and where Tory MPs use a precious opportunity at Prime Minister’s Questions to ask a question emailed to them by Conservative high command.

New on Netflix: February 2015

27 January 2015 3:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

What will February bring to Netflix? "House of Cards" returns for its much awaited third season, but not until Feb. 27. If you can't wait for your Kevin Spacey fix until then, "Now: In the Wings on a World Stage" (2014), a documentary of Spacey starring in a production of Shakespeare's "Richard III," is available on Feb. 1.

And the 2004 "King Arthur," starring Clive Owen and Keira Knightley, isn't exactly Shakespearean, but look at how many great actors -- like Mads Mikkelsen, Ioan Gruffudd, Hugh Dancy and Joel Edgerton -- have gone on to much bigger things.

You can also stream "Joe," one of Nicolas Cage's best films in recent years; the overlooked indie "The Brothers Bloom" with Mark Ruffalo, Adrien Brody and Rachel Weisz; and the barely-in-theaters thriller "The Two Faces of January," starring Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst.

Here's a much larger rundown of what's new on Netflix in February 2015, provided by Netflix. »

CBB's Perez Hilton: 'Lady Gaga and me didn't work out'

23 January 2015 9:31 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Celebrity Big Brother housemate Perez Hilton has remained coy about the break-up of his friendship with Lady Gaga.

The duo were very close until a public falling out, during which Gaga accused Hilton of sending the singer a picture of her in a wheelchair with Madonna pointing a gun at her, accompanied by the word "karma", after she injured her hip.

She later described him as a "stalker" for allegedly attempting to rent an apartment in her building, while Perez backed Christina Aguilera's album over Gaga's and suggested that his former friend had been "poisoned" by fame.

However, Perez was unusually reticent about the feud in a chat with Katie Price, saying just that the friendship "didn't work out".

The conversation started when Katie asked Perez if any of his best friends are celebrities, prompting him to reply: "I've stopped viewing celebrities as friends."

He did say he is still friendly with Katy Perry, »

The family responded to the harsh joke with a photo of Kim, 34, Kendall, 19, Kylie, 17, Kourtney, 35, and Khloe, 30, surrounding Bruce on a couch with the caption "Family First."

20 January 2015 10:20 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Who knew Russell Brand was keeping up with the Kardashian/Jenner family?!

The 39-year-old comedian stood up for the Keeping Up with the Kardashians patriarch Bruce Jenner on his daily YouTube show The Trews on Friday, accusing the media of bullying the former Olympian over his physical appearance.

"Transphobia seems to be the most recent and encouraged form of prejudice, now that racism and homophobia are not tolerated," Brand said, referring to several reports that Jenner is undergoing gender transition and the recent InTouch magazine cover where they photoshopped lipstick and blush on the 65-year-old reality star's face.
