Whoa! What is with the manners on boy bands these days? You never heard 98 Degrees talking smack about…well, it would have been Christina Aguilera back then too. In a recent interview with New York’s 92.3, the British lads of The Wanted started ripping on Xtina after what was apparently a very chilly appearance on The Voice last week. “She’s a total b—-!” bandmember Tom Parker declared, before conceding, “She might not be a b—- in real life, but she was a b—- to us. She just sat there and didn’t speak to us. Wouldn’t even look at us.” Man, as if we didn’t miss sweethearts like the Backstreet Boys already. Which we totally did!
We guess The Wanted have always been a little edgier than pop sweet hearts like Justin Bieber, but this level of douchiness seems totally uncalled for. Unless Christina Aguilera personally spat on each and everyone one of their microphones before the show, we don’t really get where all this rage is coming from. In case we didn’t get how gross the guys though Christina was, Max George took time out to contrast “scary” Aguilera with American Idol‘s lady judge Jennifer Lopez. “Yeah, well J.Lo’s hot,” he laughed. “Christina’s nothing special.” Ew you guys. Boyz II Men would be so ashamed of all of you.
We’re not going to pretend we didn’t see a Michael Lohan/ Rosie O’Donnell feud coming; we just always imagined it inside some kind of giant steel Cage of Death. “You’re out of your mind! You’re a crackhead! The last thing she did good she was sixteen,” O’Donnell said about Lindsay Lohan on the Today show this morning, when co-host Donny Deutsch suggested Lilo is “our generation’s Elizabeth Taylor.” Lindsay is, after all, portraying Taylor in the upcoming Lifetime movie Liz & Dick. Declared Rosie, “I don’t think she’s right for the role and I don’t think she’s capable at this point to portray that character.” Oh come on, Rosie. Lindsay is not a crackhead! Plus, Mean Girls came out when she was 18 and you know it!
While Lindsay has remained silent about Rosie’s diatribe so far, her dad Michael predictably has not. “Who the hell is Rosie O’Donnell to judge anyone, especially Lindsay, who has far more talent than Rosie ever had?,” he snarled to TMZ, adding, “Two failed talk shows, a failed marriage, etc … He/she who is without sin. May they cast the first stone.” Excuse me, Michael? You’re really going to call Rosie O’Donnell’s talent into question? Might we remind you of a little film entitled A League Of Their Own? Let he who has not taken on Kato Kaelin in a celebrity boxing match cast the first stone, is what we say.

This isn’t the first time Chelsea Handler has ragged on Angelina Jolie in public, and we don’t think it will be the last. We do think, however, that it should be the one that finally provokes a Jolie verbal smackdown. “Probably Angelina Jolie,” late night host Handler declared to More magazine when asked “who would be the opposite of a girls’ girl.” Added Chelsea, “She doesn’t strike me as someone I would have a close friendship with. You just know as a woman, when you see another woman, if that’s a woman you can trust.” Yikes! We know it isn’t her style, but we personally think Angie would be completely within her right to burn Chelsea right back for comments like that. Or to kick her in the head from a standing position with her fabulously toned Oscar leg. Whichever is easier.
So far Jolie has kept quiet about Handler’s insults. Remember when Chelsea went on that diatribe about Jolie’s role in the break up of Jennifer Aniston’s marriage? “She’s a homewrecker!” Handler ranted on-stage at a New Jersey in December 2010. “She can rescue as many babies from as many countries as she wants. I don’t f—ing believe you! She gives interviews, ‘I don’t have a lot of female friends.’ Because you’re a f—ing c—.” Girrrrrrrrrl! Look, we’re not asking for an all-out war here, Angelina. Just give us a zinger or two to remind everyone that you aren’t to be trifled with. Alternately, you could just project an enormous photo of your engagement ring onto the moon? Which ever feels more right, girl!

Man, if you thought shooting Season 4 of Community was going to be awkward already, you were totally right! But now even more so! While cohosting Live! With Kelly this morning, Community star Joel McHale put in his two cents about the ongoing potty-mouthed voice mail feud between Chevy Chase and the show’s creator Dan Harmon. “And as I’ve said before, we said it on The Soup, it’s impossible because there’s no way Chevy could figure out voicemail,” McHale cracks to Kelly Ripa. “He hibernates for nine months out of the year, and when you wake someone up, they’re very disoriented and a lot of the time they don’t know what they’re saying.” Oh no, that’s bears, Joel! You’re thinking of bears!
And this after all those f-bomb-laced rants Chevy left on Harmon’s phone. Because Donald Glover was going to have to break the icy silence around the craft services table anyway, Joel took the opportunity to get in few more completely unnecessary digs at Chase’s behalf. “Maybe I should bait him into it.” McHale joked after Kelly suggested he get himself some fame off the feud. “‘Come on, you wuss, leave me a message.’” Chevy is probably fumbling confusedly with an iPhone as we speak! If someone tells him how to get to Contacts, Joel, you better watch your back.

Looks like Chevy Chase is hoping to secure his legacy in the hollowed ranks of our favorite celebrity ranters. You got it, Chevy! After the Community star was caught cursing out the show’s creator Dan Harmon on voicemail (and after Harmon sort of apologized for playing it in public), Clark Griswald is back with a few editing suggestions and a whole truckload of f-bombs. “It’s just a f—ing mediocre sitcom! I want people to laugh and this isn’t funny. It ain’t funny to me because I’m 67-years-old and I’ve been doing this a long time,” Chase gripes on the recording. Man, what a diva. No…you know what? “Diva” is too flattering a term for these two. You have done nothing to earn your divadom, Chase and Harmon! Nothing!
Concludes the comedian, “I’ve been making a lot of people laugh a lot better than this.” So we have to ask: why is Chevy still on Community anyway? Seeing as how he apparently dislikes both the show and it’s creator, why doesn’t he just hang out at his mansion drinking mai tais and driving his hovercraft around the polo fields instead? Or whatever else it is that rich people do? We doubt Dan Harmon would mind, and Chevy could even write his character Pierce a spectacular exit from the show. For example, maybe rocketing off a cliff in a hovercraft while drinking mai tais. Now that is comedy!

Khloe Kardashian might have stripped down for a PETA anti-fur ad in 2008, but the way the animal rights organization has responded to Kim Kardashian’s flour bombing last Friday has Lamar’s wife ready to roll out the bear skin rug. “…I just received word that the woman responsible has very close ties to PETA, despite PETA publicly stating otherwise,” Khloe said in a statement today, referring to activist Christina Cho. “As you all know, I don’t condone violence and bullying and what happened last Thursday was just that. I am absolutely disgusted by their behavior. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and opinions — I personally don’t wear fur but that doesn’t mean I am going to force my views on anyone else, ESPECIALLY by violating them.” Smooth move, PETA. You know Khloe loves to release stress by kickboxing polar bears. You have really done it this time.
As the organization wrote on their site after the incident, “PETA has written polite letters to Kim, erected billboards, and held protests. While we weren’t behind the flour delivery, we applaud the animal advocates who were.” Fumed Kim’s sister, “I will still continue to NOT wear fur, but I will no longer support PETA. Bullying and harassment is NEVER a solution, and I won’t be a part of any organization that thinks otherwise.” Hey, cheer up Khloe! You can still strip down for your denim line…and your lingerie line…and your reality show…and in the privacy of your own home. That’ll teach ‘em!

We’re sure if Jon Hamm implied we were an idiot in public we’d want our best friend to rush to our defense, too. That being said, Kim Kardashian is probably scribbling Jonathan Cheban‘s name in her Burn Book as we speak. “Put Jon Hamm in a mall, and more people will go up to the people working at the Burger King than they will to him,” Kim’s BBF ranted to Us Weekly in response to Hamm’s recent comments about Kardashian. “Bring Kim to a mall and there will be a riot. They’re in two different businesses. Kim’s pop culture and what people like.” Declared Cheban, “It’s a lot of work, and she’s here to stay. Let’s see where he is after Mad Men.” That grotsky little biatch! Oh wait, we mean…bad move, Jonathan. Really bad, really hilarious move!
Of course, if Kim’s pal is going after her detractors, he is going to have to quit his day job; the number of Kardashian haters grows by the hour. Take action hero Jason Statham, for example. After Details magazine asked the Expendables star if he ever thought about his brand, Statham sniffed, “F— no. F— ‘em. Kim Kardashian’s a brand.” Hoo boy! Not that we don’t love the Kardashians in our way (they all have great hair and Khloe seems like a reasonable human being), but Jonathan, have you seen the guns on that guy? We have. In fact, we never want to stop seeing them. Except if they start pummeling you in the face, so could you not go down that beefilicious road if you could help it?

As Katy Perry herself would put it, “This is about to get embarrassing.” While visiting BBC Radio 1 yesterday, Perry allegedly took a pot shot at Beyonce. Beyonce, of all divas! According to PopDust, the “Part of Me” singer busted out the insult when describing her rumored song with Rihanna. “We’ve collaborated on a lot of things, but just not songs yet,” Perry explained. “It’s one of those things that’s got so much build up that we have to deliver. I want it to be like that Eurythmics and Aretha Franklin song ‘Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves,’ not ‘Beautiful Liar.’” Yup, that’s a burn right there! In case you aren’t as dedicated a Shakira fan as we are, “Beautiful Liar” is the joint Beyonce dropped with the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer in 2007. Why Katy would bring up their duet as an example is a mystery to us. She practically had to blow dust off that song to even start this beef. Don’t eat that beef, Katy! That beef is far too old!
We’re sure Perry didn’t mean her comment to seem so snarky, but seeing as how her zinger comes less than a day after she broke it down with that highly questionable cover of Kanye and Jay-Z “N—-s in Paris,” we’re going to suggest girl take a day off and pull it together before she does something even more cringe-worthy. “…I definitely want to do something that is so iconic,” Perry concluded about her upcoming collabo with RiRi. “Rihanna’s kind of busy too. We’re both busy but we planted the seed two years ago. How disappointed would you be if that song came out and it’s no good? Sometimes you have to wait for greatness.” Yes, you do Katy Perry. Yes, you do. Unless your name is Beyonce, of course. Oh burn! Let yet another beef…begin!

Michael Bay never seemed like the kind of guy we’d want to hang out with, mostly because we don’t want have to hear about the greatness that is Armageddon. We get it! It’s in the Criterion Collection! Let’s all just move on! Friends With Kids actor Chris O’Dowd, however, can’t stand the Transformers director because of the way Bay treated his former leading lady Megan Fox. “I don’t know the ins and outs of it but it’s all down to having a fallout with Michael Bay,” the Bridesmaids star ranted to The Toronto Sun. “But who wouldn’t have a fallout with him? It’s one of the [most] sexist things I’ve ever seen. She called him an a–hole. Well, he is a fucking a–hole. She’s not the only one who has said that. Why has she been singled out?” Yeah! We don’t like Michael Bay, and he never even made us straddle a motorcycle with our butts facing the camera!
As you might recall, Bay gave Fox the boot from the blockbuster film series after she compared him to Hitler following some particularly harsh on-set treatment; the director then proceeded to trash her in the news, with Shia LaBeouf providing gross, unnecessary backup. As for ruining his chances of starring in Transformers 6: Robot Punches 4 Eva, O’Dowd could care less. “I would never f—ing watch his films,” he snarled. “Never mind go and act in them.” Meanwhile, we wouldn’t be surprised if there was one solitary tear sliding down Michael Bay’s face right now. Sure he’s going to wipe it away with a $50,000 bill, but the point is it was there.

Oh girrrrrl, you’ve blown it now! Kim Kardashian, you must be really doing something wrong (or, you know, everything wrong) if the normally mild-mannered Jon Hamm is dissing you in public. “Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated,” the Mad Men star griped to Elle UK. “Being a f—ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.” We don’t think Kim is an idiot so much as she just doesn’t care what people think about her, but maybe that’s just us. Oh wait…it is just us.
Not that Hamm is the first star to call out Kim and the rest of the Kardashians for any number of perceived flaws. In November, Daniel Craig referred to the family as “f—ing idiots,” while Jonah Hill ranted to The Huffington Post in December, “The fact that the Kardashians could be more popular than a show like Mad Men is disgusting. It’s super disgusting to be a part of that culture.” Actually, most of the celebs who have called out Kim and the gang typically tend to be on the chill side. And like Mad Men! Added Hamm, “Incuriousness has become cool…It’s celebrated. It doesn’t make sense to me.” Want to see everyone else who doesn’t think it makes sense either? Check out our anti-Kardashian gallery below! We’ll give you a hint who’s in it: it’s everyone else.
