Justin Timberlake Just Broke Summer

There's a possibility I've been listening to this non-stop for the last hour.  JT's summer game is strong. 

Justin Timberlake just dropped "Can't Stop The Feeling" and it's suddenly feeling like a dance party. 



It's his first song in 3 years and it's a reminder of 80's pop and Michael Jackson. Esquire nailed it when they commented, "Every bar, every club, every cab, every party, every wedding, every birthday, every baby shower, every morning on the way to work, every evening on the way home, every barbecue, every time you put on the radio it will be 'Just dance, dance, dance.'" So, I hope you like it too.

Bonus points if you can name all the celebrity cameos in the video.

Madonna Slams Haters Of This Met Gala Outfit

Madonna at the 2016 Met Gala
You may have seen some of the bizarre fashion at the Met Gala Monday night. The whole idea is for attendees to wear something outside of their comfort zone. Madonna looked the least strange to me, probably because we've seen her wear so many weird outfits over the years.

With this outfit people criticized her for wearing it at the age of 57:



She accused haters of ageism and sexism. While both of those are true, I don't fully agree with the sexist part. I don't really want to see any 57-year-old men in that outfit either. :)

Here's Madonna's response to the criticism:
 
 

We have fought and continue to fight for civil rights and gay rights around the world. When it comes to Women's rights we are still in the dark ages. My dress at the Met Ball was a political statement as well as a fashion statement. The fact that people actually believe a woman is not allowed to express her sexuality and be adventurous past a certain age is proof that we still live in an age-ist and sexist society. I have never thought in a limited way and I'm not going to start. We cannot effect change unless we are willing to take risks By being fearless and By taking the road leas traveled by. Thats how we change history. If you have a problem with the way I dress it is simply a reflection of your prejudice. I'm not afraid to pave the way for all the girls behind me‼️ As Nina Simone once said, the definition of freedom is being fearless. I remain Unapologetic and a Rebel ❤️ in this life and all the others. Join my fight for Gender. Equality! 🙏🏻

Buy A Ticket To Adele's Concert And She'll Offer To Carry Your Baby

Adele
I assumed Adele's concert tickets were selling pretty well - I didn't realize she had to offer a gift with purchase!

Adele brought a same-sex couple on stage at her Copenhagen concert Wednesday night. While they were up there they got engaged. She joked, "Should I be your surrogate if you have children? I’d love to have a baby with someone Swedish."

Here's a video:

Arsenio Hall Suing Sinead O' Connor Over Prince. Is it the 90's?

Prince
I never thought I'd see those 3 names in a headline together again.

Controversy continues to swirl around Prince's death. Earlier this week singer Sinead O' Connor posted a Facebook rant where she called Prince a "longtime hard drug user" who got his supply from "Arsenio Hall (AKA Prince's and Eddie Murphy's bitch)."

Now TMZ is reporting that Arsenio is responding with a $5 million defamation lawsuit. He denies ever supplying Prince with any illegal drugs.

This whole storyline sounds like a fan fiction novel written for a VH1 movie.

Not Interested In The Kardashians? Neither is Cuba

Khloe and Kim Kardashian
Some celebrities choose vacation destinations where they won't be bothered. It could be a small country, a private island, or even a rural town where people don't care about celebrity. I'm guessing the Kardashians don't choose their vacations that way.

The girls are in Cuba this week and it appears no one cares. According to CNN, nobody is asking for or taking photos of them. 
 

Don't worry they're taking plenty of photos of themselves.

This one is getting a backlash for being insensitive to how the Cubans lived under the Castro regime.
 
 

Havana ??

Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen from Florida and who is of Cuban descent got in a pretty good dig. "Haven't the Cuban people suffered enough? Fidel, Raul Castro, and now the Kardashians?"

KFC Is Selling Chicken Flavored Nail Polish (Really)

KFC
If you finally broke the habit of biting your nails you might be screwed again. KFC just announced chicken-flavored nail polish.
 
"Simply apply and dry like regular nail polish and then lick - again and again and again," KFC announced.. The smell of nail polish is so awful I can't imagine this being appealing, but I'll bet people will try it!

It's only available in Hong Kong for now. No word on if the polish contains any calories.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom Go Public By Posing For A Photo Together

Orlando Bloom
They've been romantically linked since the Golden Globes, but Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom finally acknowledged their relationship publicly by posing for a photo together.
 
It happened at the Met Gala this week. The bizarre part is they arrived separately. I wonder if it was a last minute decision inspired by some liquid courage?
