Iggy Azalea's Behavior at MTV's 'House of Style' Questioned

9 hours ago | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Iggy Azalea's behavior has been questioned - the blonde entertainer has been blasted for her moody behavior on the set of her new TV show. The 'Fancy' hitmaker is the new host of MTV's 'House of Style' and reportedly spent much of filming at the Versace store in Beverly Hills on August 9 with a ''complete scowl'' on her face. A source told the Hollywood Reporter: ''Iggy walked in with her entourage and wouldn't take her sunglasses off the whole time we were in the store shooting her. ''She had a complete scowl the whole time and never cracked a smile -- unless the cameras were on. And the minute they stopped, it was back to scowling.'' According to the source, even when the shoot moved outside the store to where fans had gathered, the 24-year-old rapper still refused to smile. In contract, Iggy's guest for the episode, ' »

Rising Star Semifinal Recap: Killing Me Slowly… With Their Songs

17 August 2014 7:50 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Off the top of my head, I’d like to throw out a few important new guidelines for Season 2 of Rising Star — while acknowledging that the months old, unchecked Powerball ticket in my wallet is as likely to make all my dreams come true as ABC’s woeful reality-singing competition is to return in 2015:

1. If the show’s “experts” are going to pretend to be “mentors,” then they should never ever allow a wide-eyed 16-year-old girl to sing lyrics about being a “for-a-good-time-call” party girl. #RIPManeepatMolloy

2. Ke$ha must agree to a four-hour nap and five Red Bulls prior to any live telecast. »

The "American Idol" alum is clearly proud of her fit figure, but the extra fabric on her hips just makes her look wide.Basically everyone wore some type of crop top to the star-studded award show, but the singer's print was just a little too loud.

Film Review: ‘Septic Man’

15 August 2014 1:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Anyone clamoring for a scatological horror movie will get what’s coming to them with “Septic Man.” The Canadian oddity about a sewer worker who oh-so-slowly transforms into a monstrous mutant proudly distinguishes itself as the crappiest chiller in recent memory, quite literally. Overflowing with bodily fluids (and solids) but lacking the sort of gonzo calling cards that would make it required viewing for extreme-cinema aficionados, director Jesse Thomas Cook’s humorless third low-budget feature is a monotonous mess. It’s set to make the rounds from VOD bow to limited theatrical release to DVD debut in just eight days, but it would be more apt to flush this steaming pile straight away into the annals of trivial genre junk.

Cook immediately announces his intentions with a stomach-churning pre-credits sequence of an anonymous young woman puking and pooping her guts out on a dingy bathroom set that grimly recalls the worst of the “Saw” franchise. »

14 August 2014 4:26 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If you've heard the song, "All About That Bass," chances are you're as obsessed with it as I am. It's the breakout hit from rising star Meghan Trainor, and it's currently sitting at No. 1 on iTunes' top 100 chart and No. 4 on Billboard's Hot 100. Not only is the throwback beat super catchy, the lyrics are all about body acceptance and self-empowerment. Trainor is a young up-and-coming singer, and if you're curious about her, here are all the details on the talented budding diva - including when we'll get to hear some new music from her. She's new to this. Trainor is only 20 years old, and this is her first single. Though she was signed to a label at 18, she's been primarily a songwriter for other artists. L.A. Reid was responsible for getting the track made. In an interview with Billboard, Trainor admitted that though she wrote the song over a year ago, »
