We got some good news and bad news for you James Franco fans out there. The good news is, he made a sex tape. The bad news, it’s apparently pretty awful. During an appearance on Conan last night, the Rise of The Planet of the Apes star and renaissance man came clean about the one aspect of film he’s not so great at. “When I was young, it’s not like I went down to Van Nuys and tried to break into the porn industry,” he admitted. “I got a video camera and my girlfriend and I decided to film ourselves. And watched it back and said yeah, let’s never watch that again.” Although we’d kind of expect as much. If he can’t get the energy level up for hosting the dang Oscars, we can’t imagine his sex tape would be any better.
But the experience made him have a new reverence and respect for adult film stars. “Those people in porno’s are great performers,” says the Academy Award nominee. “They’re selling it to an audience!” He then went on to randomly mention his grandma in the next breath, for reasons we can only guess at. Damn it Franco, first rule of the porn industry: NEVER bring up Nanna.

Rihanna definitely seems like a gal who isn’t afraid to get what she wants, and it sounds like she wants Joe Jonas. That would explain why she’s apparently sexting the 21-year-old Disney star! Ã¢â‚¬Å“They met when Joe did a song with RihannaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ex Chris Brown, and recently sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been bombarding him with raunchy text messages,Ã¢â‚¬Â a source told ShowizSpy. Ã¢â‚¬Å“She keeps laughing to her mates that she wants to take him on the wildest ride of his life.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The middle Jo-Bro has been linked to some pretty steamy women in his young life, including Ashley Green, Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift. Yet he still remains single, saying that he’s Ã¢â‚¬Å“always looking for the right person.” Is the sexed up Rihanna the one who can win/corrupt his young heart? Riri may be bad, but she’s certainly good at it! And there’s definitely something deliciously bad about a perpetually bikini’d older woman putting the moves on the young promise-ringer.

It looks like the X-Men bond has been broken, as Zoe Kravitz has split with her First Class costar Michael Fassbender and moved on to Gossip Girl star, Penn Badgley. The two were seen leaving the (aptly named) Friends With Benefits party in the same cab, and more recently they were seen canoodling in a darkened movie theater watching Horrible Bosses. Ã¢â‚¬Å“He had his arm around her while they waited in line,Ã¢â‚¬Â a source told Page Six.
But it looks like that was the wrong movie to see together, because things got a little awkward for the newly minted couple. Apparently there’s a part of the movie where Jennifer Aniston’s racy character asks, “Did you see Gossip Girl last night? I [bleeped] myself so hard [watching] that Penn Badgley guy, I broke a nail.” According to the witness, this made the real Penn more than a little uncomfortable. “The look on PennÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s face was priceless. They left the theater right after.” Looks like you might have some competition, Zoe!
For most of us, booze helps us make bad decisions. Or at best, some kind of horrible whatever-is-in-the-fridge culinary creation at 3 AM. But for Adele, booze helps her write her award winning, record breaking, multi-platinum selling music. Wow, we’ll have what she’s having! Like many great records, the 23-year old singer’s brilliant sophomore album 21 was inspired by a breakup with her boyfriend. But just recently Adele opened up about her writing technique. And it involves knockin’ some back.
“I used to have to lock myself away in my house, get pretty drunk and write a drunk diary,” she admitted to The Sun, “and that was the first time I could admit things to myself.” She says this approach made her songs more honest. “A drunk tongue is an honest one in my opinion.” But that was only the first phase of the process. “The next morning I would read it through with an awful hangover and, in the cold light of day, had to absorb my feelings about myself.” In addition to helping her make great art, she says it also helped her grow up. “I started realizing my own flaws and my disappointments and I started regretting a lot of stuff. It was quite an awakening.” Pretty intense stuff for a then-21-year-old. Who knows what she’ll have to tell us on her next album!

Following a drug-related arrest back in April for which she was given 12 months probation, the law has once again caught up with Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans. TMZ is reporting that the MTV reality figure has been arrested in North Carolina for violating her probation, and has tested positive for marijuana and opiates. She was released on $10,000 bond this morning according to her lawyer, and is due back in court on the 24th of August. In addition to April’s drug bust, the troubled teen has also been charged with assault after a video of her attacking another girl went viral in March of this year. What we want to know is: where the hell is the teen mom’s mom!?

Gleeks came out in droves to attend the premiere of Glee: The 3-D Concert Movie in Los Angeles over the weekend. And all we can say is, dayyyumm they were looking fine! Your favorite singing high schoolers this side of High School Musical turned the glitz on full as they strutted the red carpet. Lea Michele went with a short ‘n’ tight (and mildly scando) black lace strapless number, while Dianna Agron ying’ed Lea’s yang with a white dress and blonde hair in a messy-chic bob. Glee gents Cory Monteith, Darren Criss and Kevin McHale suited up in dapper darks, while Chris Colfer went with an off-kilter high collared shirt and tie. Check out more hot outfits (and some surprise guests…) in the gallery below!

After a spell of acting like a subdued elder statesman of the rap game, the Kanye West we know and love returned with another bizarre (and bigheaded) outburst that may cause you to face-palm yourself in confusion. Being anything but chill while performing at the Big Chill music festival in England, he ranted:
“I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I’m f–king insane, like I’m Hitler. One day the light will shine through and one day people will understand everything I ever did.”
The crowd booed (he also began his set a half hour late), but AirÃ‚Â Yeezy went on to say he wished to be remembered as the Air Jordan of the music world, not Hitler.
It was a scary weekend for Royce Reed, as the Basketball Wives star suffered a seizure at a charity softball game in Wilmington, Delaware.Ã‚Â TMZ is reporting that she pulled a hamstring, and when she sat down to ice it, she passed out on the spot. Royce had no idea what had happened after regaining consciousness, and claimed it was the first time she’d ever had such an experience. EMTs were called, but she said she was feeling fine and didn’t need to go to a hospital. What a trooper! Let’s hope she got the MVP award.
She blamed the incident on the usual culprits for celebrity health woes: stress, exhaustion, heat and her diet. Luckily she seems to be pulling through like a champ. The very next day she tweeted a message to let her fans know that she was still truckin’ (and partyin’): I’m fine yall! I went out & evthing last night. I just gotta eat better & rest more. Thx 4 ur prayers/well wishes but yall kno I’m tough Take it easy there, Royce!
It looks like Marky Mark and Leo are definitely Team Jacob!Ã‚Â Taylor Lautner has been making heats beat faster ever since getting his defining role as everyone’s favorite dreamy teen wolf (sorry, MTV) in the Twilight Saga. And even former teen (current adult) heart-throbs Mark Wahlberg and Leonardo DiCaprio aren’t immune to his charms! The two senior badasses made light of Taylor’s star power at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s annual luncheon yesterday in Los Angeles.
“I am sitting at a table with a gentleman who is better looking than you and is in better shape than me,” Marky admitted to Leo while on stage. “So, we’re both out of a job, dude. Taylor Lautner! We’re screwed. It’s over, dude. Titanic and Boogie Nights were a long time ago. I accept it. I had a good run and on to the next.” Leo nodded in agreement and the room roared with laughter. What did the object of the attention think of all this? “It’s so odd,” he told E! Online reporter Marc Malkin.Ã‚Â “It’s such an honor. I’m up on the stage and talking in front of people like that? The people that I looked up to my entire life? Hearing words like that from Mark and everybody it’s just really surreal.”
Do you think Taylor has what it takes to be the next Leo or Mark? Let us know in the poll below!
