Even superstar rappers can be klutzy. Kanye West and baby mama Kim Kardashian were trying to escape the paparazzi in Beverly Hills this week and Ye ended up running headfirst into a sign.
TMZ has video of what appears to be a very painful incident. Ironically, the sign Ye walked into was a “Wrong Way” sign. According to TMZ, Kanye was furious after the incident and went HAM on the paps. Apparently a video of that is on its way. “Turns out Kanye did end up going NUTS on a photog a short while after this video was taken. Keep refreshing the site for the new video … coming soon” shared TMZ.
This is but one of many public appearances of KimYe as of late. Recently, the duo was spotted at the annual MET Gala in NYC in which Kim wore a controversial flowered Givenchy dress.
During the fete, Ye performed a new song and at one point, said, “Don’t let nobody bring you down, you’re so awesome, you’re so awesome!” Many thought this to be a shout out to Kim in the audience. In another clip from the evening, Ye, took the stage in a leather skirt, Givenchy top and studded mask, and performed what sounded like another new song in which he yells, “I am a god!”

Okay, so there probably isn##Q##t much you don##Q##t know about RGos. If you##Q##re a true fan, you##Q##ve likely heard this all before. But that doesn##Q##t mean you couldn##Q##t use a little refresher in advance of this weekend##Q##s “The Place Beyond the Pines.” I mean, is there ever not a good time to talk about his torrid affair with Häagen-Dazs prior to “The Lovely Bones”? I didn##Q##t think so.
1) Those “Crazy Stupid Love” abs were real, but so was that time he melted down Häagen-Dazs and drank it: Gosling was supposed to play the father in Peter Jackson##Q##s “The Lovely Bones,” but was unceremoniously fired after he showed up on set 60 pounds heavier. “I really believed [the character] should be 210 pounds. I was melting Häagen-Dazs and drinking it when I was thirsty,” he confessed during an Oscar roundtable in 2010. “I really believed in it. I was excited about it.” Unfortunately, Jackson did not agree with him, and Mark Wahlberg was ultimately hired to replace Gosling.
2) Justin Timberlake##Q##s mom was his legal guardian for a while: During an interview with GQ, Timberlake revealed that his mother served as Gosling##Q##s legal guardian for a year while they starred on “The Mickey Mouse Club.” “Ryan##Q##s mom had to stay back in Canada,” he explained. “[M]y mom was his guardian for a year, so he could come down and be on the show.” A true bromance!
3) He might have corrupted Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera: While they were Mouseketeers, Spears and Aguilera came to Gosling with questions about sex. “I just told them what I heard — like positions and stuff,” Gosling admitted to EW in 2002. “And all the mothers went to Disney and told them I was corrupting their kids… I feel somewhat responsible for how sexual she is right now. When I see her with a snake around her neck, I think, ##Q##Did I do that?##Q## “
4) He copied Marlon Brando##Q##s accent and now he can##Q##t get rid of it: “As a kid I decided that a Canadian accent doesn##Q##t sound tough,” he told W. “I thought guys should sound like Marlon Brando. So now I have a phony accent that I can##Q##t shake, so it##Q##s not phony anymore. I##Q##m going for the Madonna thing, the Lady Gaga thing — a phony accent that becomes your trademark.”
5) He bought a restaurant on a whim: It##Q##s called Tagine and you can find it in Beverly Hills. “I never really wanted to own it but one of my best friends called me one night, said his cousin was leaving town and needed to sell it,” Gosling said. “My friend wanted to buy it but he said we had to do it that night. At the time I wasn##Q##t very busy so I spent all my money on this restaurant. I spent a year working in it and now I love it. I think it##Q##s one of the best restaurants in LA.”
6) He once tried to tattoo himself: Like the true badass he is, Gosling attempted to ink himself with a monster holding a bloody heart: “One of my tattoos is supposed to be a monster##Q##s hand dropping a bloody heart but I did it myself with a tattoo kit so it looks like a cactus.” After that, he left it to the professionals.
7) He thinks muscles are pointless: “That was a lot of work,” he told “Extra” of his physique for “Crazy Stupid Love.” It##Q##s such a waste of time. It takes so much time to make muscles and then they don##Q##t really do anything.”
8) He nearly ruined “The Place Beyond the Pines” with his shirtlessness: Director Derek Cianfrance told Vanity Fair that carnival-goers ruined the opening shot of the film countless times by staring at Gosling##Q##s bare chest. “I had about a dozen [assistant directors] with Dr. Seuss hats to distract people and make sure they did not look in the camera and did not look at Ryan Gosling with his shirt off walking through the fair,” Cianfrance said. “I would say that there were many takes ruined by people doing that.”
Xan Cassavetes — daughter of famed moviemaking couple director John Cassavetes and actress Gena Rowlands — seems to have been inspired by the sexy and twisted vampire films from the 1970s for her new movie “Kiss of the Damned.” The cool, contemporary take on bloodsucking fiends tells the story of one vamp falling in love with a human, but the relationship is threatened when the undead woman’s wild sister shows up.
The entire vampire community also becomes endangered thanks to the troublemaker’s pathological personality. The red band trailer that popped up on Yahoo! this week reveals a very retro, erotic vibe. Look for “Kiss of the Damned” on iTunes/On Demand March 28, or see it in theaters May 3. We vote you whet your appetite in the meantime by watching this NSFW trailer.

Returning to the “Horror”
Who doesn’t love a good possession tale? One of the most famous in horror film history is “The Amityville Horror” — based on a “true,” tell-all novel by Jay Anson. The 1979 film about the real-life experiences of the Lutz family, who purchased the creepy house with the ocular windows that had been the scene of a brutal murder, has terrified generations. After the Lutzes moved into what they thought was their dream home, paranormal occurrences drove them out — screaming. There’s a ton of controversy surrounding the “Amityville” story — mainly whether it’s true or all faked. That’s what director Eric Walter explores in his hair-raising documentary “My Amityville Horror.” Daniel Lutz was nine years old at the time of the paranormal weirdness, and he tells his side of the story in Walter’s film. Whether you believe “Amityville” happened or not, this trailer from Dread Central makes it clear that Daniel has been haunted by the bizarre events at 112 Ocean Avenue his entire life. You can see the film at a one-night only screening on March 16 (Laemmle Music Hall in Beverly Hills, CA). The rest of us will get a chance to judge Daniel’s story for ourselves when the movie is available via VOD on March 15 (Sundance Now).
Do you want to see Wesley Snipes tear the heads off zombie cowboys and try to relive those glory years from the “Blade” movies? Of course you do! Here’s the sales trailer for Andrew Goth and Joanne Ray’s “Gallowwalkers.” Mysterious gunman Aman (Snipes) is the son of a nun who goes against God to ensure her son’s survival. Unfortunately, the sin curses Aman so that whenever he takes a life, he’s haunted by his victim’s corpse. When Aman’s true love is murdered, he seeks revenge and wipes out an entire gang. They come back to life to hunt him down, and an epic battle between the living and the dead ensues. Is the violent revenge western too much like “Blade,” or can you dig it? (via ComingSoon)

For mamas-to-be, Valentine’s Day outfits are usually longer and looser than those sported by girls on the prowl. Take Kim Kardashian, for instance, who chose black trousers and an oversized white blouse to dine with her boyfriend Kanye West at Lawry’s Prime Rib Restaurant in Beverly Hills, CA. What airport security issue?
The infamous couple was spotted in comfortable attire as they celebrated the romantic holiday yesterday. While 32-year-old Kim rocked a black and white ensemble, Kanye went all blue everything in a Canadian tuxedo (denim on denim.) Just Jared posted more than twenty photos of Kimye on their date, in case you were extra curious of how their outfits look from different angles.
Sharing the Valentine’s Day love with her Twitter fans, Kim tweeted yesterday: “Happy Valentine’s Day lovers!”
Two days before their casual dinner date in SoCal, Kim and Kanye stirred things up at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York. They were on a layover between Brazil and Los Angeles where an airline employee decided to let them bypass a security screening. They then had to be pulled off the plane, which contributed to the flight’s delay. Obviously, everything was okay in the end and they got home with plenty of time to settle in before their V-day plans.
On Wednesday night, Bieber picked up Gomez from the airport before they headed back over to her house, TMZ reports. The next day they were snapped headed to the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, heading into the hotel at separate times. The site further reports that the hangout session came just as Gomez had reportedly blocked Bieber on her cell.
Later on Thursday, they were spotted at the Laugh Factory Comedy Club, where they were photographed leaving the L.A. hotspot at separate times, even though they both arrived in the same van, E! News reports. Bieber is currently in the City of Angels to attend the AMAs this Sunday. Gomez reportedly won’t attend the show.
This is not the first time the twosome had been spotted together post split. Days after the news broke, it was rumored that Bieber visited Gomez at her NYC hotel. “I saw Selena go into the hotel around 5:40 p.m. and not even three hours later, Justin went in,” a source told Life Style about the rumored reunion. “I saw him leave around 11 p.m.”
Earlier this week, fans weighed in on whether they’d want to see the former lovebirds get back together. Some were against it, but a number of fans wouldn’t mind seeing the couple reconcile. “They NEED to get back together!! THEY WERE PERFECT! #sadness,” one MTV News reader, Jaela, commented. Salma added, “Yess JELENA FOREVER
Whether or not they do end up back together, they each have projects to keep them busy. Bieber is currently on his Believe tour, while Gomez is prepping a March album release.

With Hurricane Sandy gearing up to wreck havoc in the Northeast, that didn’t stop celebrities from missing out on the Halloween fun. Everyone from Kim Kardashian to Emma Roberts opted for their sexiest, or their scariest, Halloween costumes this past weekend.
Kim Kardashian got aquatic this Halloween weekend, transforming into Darryl Hannah‘s mermaid look from the flick, “Splash,” sporting a long, blond wig and a seashell top. Yet, to complete her costume, Kardashian had Kanye West as her “captain.” Kardashian tweeted a photo of the two of them together, writing “Me my captain,” before the two attended the 2nd Annual Midori Green Halloween Party in New York.
A host of other star-studded couples got into the early Halloween spirit, including Ryan Seacrest, who shared a photo of himself and girlfriend Julianne Hough, with the caption “Bonnie, Clyde, and the jail yard dogs.”
Fergie and husband Josh Duhamel got creative with their Halloween costumes, dressing up famous self-promoting actors Angelyne and Dennis Woodruff.
“The Voice” coach Christina Aguilera, took the sexy route this Halloween. The “Your Body” singer sported a revealing fish-net look with a large pink wig and white crown, while her boyfriend Matthew Rutler was her knight in shining armor.
In an almost unrecognizable transformation, “Jersey Shore” star Jenni “JWoww” Farley traded in her club gear for a pair of suspenders this Halloween. JWoww and fiancé Roger Mathews got nerdy in Las Vegas as they made themselves into geeks with bowties, plaid pants and taped-up glasses.
Diddy seems to have made a full recovery from his recent car accident, partying at the playboy mansion dressed as Prince. Cassie, who dressed up as a sexy Cleopatra, tweeted a photo of herself and Diddy, with the caption “Cleopatra Prince! Happy Halloween!!!! #turnup.”
Emma Roberts didn’t have to look too far for inspiration for her Halloween costume, turning heads in Beverly Hills as she dressed up as Aunt Julia Roberts‘s infamous prostitute outfit from the classic flick, “Pretty Woman.”
Yet, the partying didn’t just happen here in the States, before they dropped their new single, “Little Things,” One Direction‘s Liam Payne got heroic dressing up as the caped crusader Batman, parting the night away with Olympic diver Tom Daley, who went as the Penguin.
Which celebrity had the best Halloween costume? Let us know in the comments.
BEVERLY HILLS, California — Christina Aguilera has inspired many young singers, and “The Voice” gave some of them an opportunity to return the favor.
On Friday, the pop diva invited MTV News to her home in Beverly Hills (which happens to be the house from “The Osbournes”), where she revealed how “The Voice” contestants helped inspire her new album.
“At this part of my life, I feel that I’ve reached a place where I’m completely embracing everything about who I am,” she said, lounging on a comfy couch inside the backyard studio originally built for Ozzy Osbourne. The 31-year-old singer recently revealed via Twitter that her first album in two years, Lotus, will arrive in November, just as NBC announced her departure from “The Voice” for next season. Shakira and Usher will take over for Aguilera and Cee Lo Green, who will both refocus on other projects.
Aguilera said her experience as a coach and judge on the televised singing competition reignited the fire she had around the time she dropped her self-titled debut in 1999. Talking with the show’s contestants inspired her to get back to inspiring others, as the show allowed her to “see through the eyes of aspiring artists at the beginning of their journey, to be part of their journey, to see the hunger in their eyes and to sort of regain some of that back for myself,” she explained.
Despite the addition of pop-punk pioneer Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day as a mentor to her team, Christina’s crew on the season that kicked off earlier this month put her right in her comfort zone of sugary and glossy musical confectionaries.
“This year in particular, season three, I have a very pop-oriented team,” she said. “And they come to me and they’re like, ‘You know, I remember being in my room trying to dissect and learn all of the little ad libs and your technique and the runs and things like that, hitting your notes.’ It inspired me also to want to give more of myself vocally on this record to let the next generation of great singers evolve and be inspired once again to dissect and learn certain lyrics and things.”
Featuring the Max Martin-produced lead single “Your Body,” Lotus has been described by the singer as something of a “rebirth.” “The term ‘lotus’ means to me the unbreakable flower,” she said. “No matter the harshest of weather conditions, or its surroundings, it still survives and it thrives throughout time.”
Lotus will also feature plenty of slower songs, plus a track she described as something like “The Fighter 2.0.”
“I wanted to make a record that speaks to those fans who grew up listening to my music and yet reintroduce new fans … watching me on ‘The Voice’ at 6 years old who don’t know about my first record,” she said.
Download Christina’s new single, “Your Body” now on iTunes! “Your Body” is the first single from Christina’s new album Lotus, available everywhere November 13.
Veteran actor and comedian Fred Willard was arrested for lewd conduct Wednesday night at a movie theater in Hollywood.
According to TMZ, the “Anchorman” actor was caught with his pants down in the Tiki Theater in Hollywood when LAPD undercover vice officers went into the theater. The local authorities told TMZ that they were not conducting a raid of the theater, just a random walk-through, which they are permitted to do as stated in the theater’s license agreement.
Willard was reportedly arrested around 8:45 p.m. and booked for lewd conduct. LAPD representatives told TMZ that the actor was only held in police custody for a short while and released later that night.
PBS told The New York Times on Thursday (July 19) that due to the incident, Willard will no longer be the narrator of “Market Warriors,” a new show that is a spinoff of “Antiques Roadshow.”
Reps for Willard have yet to comment on the incident.
Willard is best known for his comedic work on television and in films like “Everybody Loves Raymond,” “King of the Hill,” “Modern Family,” “This Is Spinal Tap,” “Roxanne,” “Waiting for Guffman,” “Best in Show,” “American Wedding,” “Anchorman,” “Wall-E,” and “Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle.”
While most sources indicate Willard is 72, TMZ reports that “official records” show the actor is 78. He is not the first celebrity to have been arrested for lewd conduct. George Michael was famously arrested and sentenced for a lewd act in a Beverly Hills bathroom in 1998, which prompted Michael to officially declare his long-speculated homosexuality during an interview with CNN. Paul Reubens (a.k.a. Pee-wee Herman) faced a similar media storm when he was arrested at an adult theater in 1991 for indecent exposure. Although their celebrity images were blemished for a time after the incidents, both celebrities have continued to work in their respective fields.
Willard is rumored to be involved with an upcoming comedy called “The Yank.”
Drake and his entourage were seen leaving the Villa Blanca restaurant after lunch in Beverly Hills, California yesterday. The rapper wore a Dolce Gabbana Melange serafino henley t-shirt ($229) with a gold watch, purple pants, and sneakers. See more pics below
