Another day, another pile of celebrity dirt! It’s time to catch you up on all the celebrity gossip first thing in the AM so you can be in the know before all of your friends!
Today we’ve got the latest dirt on the suspension of NY Knick’s Carmelo Anthony, Justin Timberlake has a special announcement today (could it be new music w/Beyonce and Jay-Z?), and Britney Spears is officially out of X Factor!
Let’s get it started!
Carmelo Anthony Suspended For One Game After Altercation
The NY Knicks will be without Carmelo, as they play a nationally televised basketball game against The Pacers in Indiana tonight. The one game suspension comes just two days after Carmelo and the Kevin Garnett got into a heated argument during Monday night’s game.
During the fourth quarter, Garnett told Anthony that his wife La La tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios.
Several videos showed Anthony being restrained by security guards, police officers, Coach Mike Woodson and his teammate J. R. Smith as the Celtics were boarding their bus. So it looks like there was more behind the scenes than people actually thought!
So does this deserve a one game suspension and loss of pay (Carmelo will lose about $176,700 of his $19.4 million salary)? Why yes it does! Sure he was defending his wife, but just keep your mouth shut and be a man about it. Let’s hope the Knicks kick out a win tonight!
Cryptic Tweet From Justin Timberlake Gets Fans Excited; New Music!?
Over night Justin Timberlake sent out a tweet that had the Twitterverse buzzing:
Thursday, January 10th, 2013 at 9:01 am PST…—
Justin Timberlake (@jtimberlake) January 10, 2013
Is JT releasing new music!? Is he bringing Sexy Back in 2013? According to The Hollywood Reporter, Timberlake is coming out with an album produced by longtime collaborator Timbaland.
Timberlake, who is the ORIGINAL Justin (eat your heart out Biebs!), is believed to have around 20 new tracks recorded in the studio.
Another rumor is that JT is releasing a new single with Beyonce and Jay-Z. Perfect timing for the Super Bowl, right? All signs are pointing to both of these coming true.
Or maybe his tease is just some attempt at bringing that Myspace sexyback..
Britney Officially Admits She’s Out Of X Factor?
We can finally put to rest the whole “will she, or won’t she” speculation as to whether or not Britney Spears will be joining the judges table on next season’s X Factor.
Before the holidays, the news broke she was fired by Simon. Yesterday FOX’s chairman said she might be back. But today it seems like the first part was true..but only half way true.
“Britney loves Simon, she likes Demi Lovato but her thing is music.”
Britney is readying a brand new album for 2013. She’s already been hitting the studio recording her 8th album, with “some help from Will.i.am and producer Hit-Boy, the brains behind Kanye and Jay-Z’s “N****s in Paris.”
Love this story! I’m officially fan-girl in my chair!
Joe Jonas Out Of The Closet? According To a Close Friend, He Is!
A close friend of The Jonas Brothers might’ve hinted in a blog post that his friend Joe Jonas is gay. Rob Hoffman, who was The JoBro’s behind-the-scenes photographer during their peak had some comments to say about Taylor Swift’s past relationships in a new blog post. And in that post, he mentions one of her exes is gay.
“The only redeeming quality of any boy band these days is betting on which one is going to date Taylor Swift, and as a result, come out of the closet 2 months later.”
As you recall, Tay Tay dated Joe Jonas back in 2009, which resulted in several hit songs.
Does this SAY that Joe is gay? Not exactly, but signs are pointing towards a definite YES! Or maybe it’s Taylor Lautner? Because we know it’s not John Mayer!
