We told you yesterday that Thor was People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive. They chose Chris Hemsworth. Well we've heard that People has asked Ryan Gosling several times to be its Sexiest Man Alive, but he turned them down every time because he's, "too artsy." But the magazine was quick to note that this year's, Chris was their first choice. Side note, every year, when People names its Sexiest Man Alive, Esquire names its Sexiest Woman Alive. They voted Penelope Cruz into their top spot.

Tyga pulled a no-show for a club appearance when the place shot down his demands to get his underage "friend" Kylie Jenner into a West Hollywood night club. Tyga begged the promoters to get 17-year-old Kylie admitted -- calling several times throughout the day. He even pushed his arrival time to 1:30am while trying to negotiate with the manager.

Shailene Woodley is 23 years old and she's done something no actress has ever done. She's lost her fictional virginity five times. On the TV show "The Secret Life of the American Teenager", and in the movies "The Fault In Our Stars", "Divergent", "White Bird in a Blizzard", and "The Spectacular Now".

Taylor Swift made Billboard history this week, by beating HERSELF for the #1 song. "Blank Space" replaced "Shake It Off" at the top of the chart, making her the first woman in Billboard Hot 100 history to ever do that. By the way, on the album chart, "1989" took the #1 spot for a third straight week.

In today's most bizzare Big Fat Rumor of the Day, Olympic Gold medal winner Michael Phelps' girlfriend Taylor Lianne Chandler revealed on Facebook that she was actually born a boy named David Roy Fitch. As a teenager, Taylor went on testosterone blockers and had her name changed and then, in her early twenties, underwent corrective surgery to get rid of her male genitalia. They met on Tinder and she says she never lied to him about her past, saying it just never came up.

Taryn Manning plays the meth-using, born-again Christian "Pennsatucky" on "Orange Is the New Black" and she used to be friends with a woman named Jeanine Heller. But they had a major falling out. They have a mutual restraining order against each other, but they're both violating it. In September, Jeanine was arrested for harassing Taryn by calling and emailing her "hundreds of times." And now, Taryn has been accused of threatening Jeanine through text messages and social media, saying things like, "I will kill you, b****" and "Go f*** yourself and die." Well, Taryn failed to show up in court to defend herself, so the judge cited her for contempt, and she was arrested. On Twitter, Taryn blasted the reports on her arrest, and insisted that SHE'S the victim.

Chris Hemsworth has been named "People" magazine's Sexiest Man Alive. he's hoping it gives him a little advantage over his wife Elsa Pataky at home. He says, "I can just say to her, 'Now remember, this is what the people think, so I don't need to do the dishes anymore, I don't need to change diapers. I'm above that. I've made it now.'" The runners-up include Chris Pratt, Blake Shelton, Bradley Cooper, Michael Strahan, Tim Tebow, Idris Elba, Jamie Dornan and Matt Bomer. Watch Chris's face when he's asked what is sexy? Awww!!! It's at the end of the video.



Nicki Minaj would be "disappointed" if she got so career-focused that she missed the chance to push something out of her baby chute. She tells "Complex" magazine, "I feel like I was put here to be a mother. I have definitely put off the wife thing, but I definitely will be married before I have my baby. I want to make sure I do it in that order. I've always felt like that since I was young, my mother always put that in my head." She said, "By the fifth album, I will have walked down the aisle, and I'll at least be on Baby #1, possibly Baby #2." Next month, Nicki will turn 32, and will release Album #3.

Justin Timberlake owned some joker on Twitter who tried to call him out as a bandwagon fan of the Memphis Grizzlies. What this guy obviously didn't know is that Justin is a Memphis native and a part-owner of the team. JT Tweeted, "Grizzlies" to celebrate their 10-1 start to the season and some dude retweeted him saying "Bandwagon." That's when Justin said, "Uh... I'm from Memphis and I'm an owner. Anyone else? #WigSnatch" Haaaa haaaa!!!

Kathy Griffin is replacing Joan Rivers on E!'s "Fashion Police". But the show will no longer be a weekly series. Instead, E! will use it as "event programming," during award shows and other special occasions. Kathy will join Melissa Rivers, Kelly Osbourne, and Giuliana Rancic. It's unclear whether or not George Kotsiopoulos will be back.

There have been a lot of allegations about Bill Cosby recently and it's become too much to ignore. Former supermodel Janice Dickinson claims Bill Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in 1982. Dickinson says Cosby summoned her to Lake Tahoe, where he was performing, in order to discuss her professional future. She remembers that Cosby gave her red wine and a pill in her hotel room, leading her to black out. At that point, she says, he raped her. She says she included the claim in her memoir, but that Cosby's lawyer's pressured her publisher to remove it. Why come forward now? "I'm doing this because it's the right thing to do, and it happened to me, and this is the true story."

In the Kim Kardashian champagne glass photo, you can't see a brand name on the champagne bottle and that's apparently because no champagne brand wanted to be associated with it. Although they're probably all kicking themselves now. Paper magazine shopped around to all the champagne brands to be a sponsor, to be the Champagne bottle in the image and every one passed.

J. Cole says his next album is called "2014 Forest Hills Drive", and it's coming out on December 9th. But in a Facebook post, he said, "This time I'm releasing no singles, just the album. See you in three weeks." He says that he wants to reconnect with his small-town life and rediscover "real happiness" after being in Hollywood for several years.


Nicki Minaj has released "Bed of Lies" - it's her fourth single off her new album "The Pinkprint" and it features Skylar Grey. Nicki's album is due out December 15th.



Jaden and Willow Smith did a new interview with the "New York Times" but they just said so many bizarre things it's hard to know where to begin. But let's start with their feelings on school. Jaden says, "School is not authentic because it ends. Our learning will never end. The school that we go to every single morning, we will continue to go to." And Willow added, "I went to school for one year. It was the best experience but the worst experience. The best experience because I was, like, 'Oh, now I know why kids are so depressed.' But it was the worst experience because I was depressed." Here's what Jaden had to say about time: "I mean, time for me, I can make it go slow or fast, however I please, and that's how I know it doesn't exist." Willow has a particular theory on reading. "There're no novels that I like to read so I write my own novels, and then I read them again, and it's the best thing." And Willow gave us this insight into babies "When they're in the stomach, they're so aware, putting all their bones together, putting all their ligaments together. But they're shocked by this harsh world." This will frustrate you, Jaden said, "We don't think a lot of the music out there is that cool. So we make our own music."

If you're not feeling the Christmas spirit yet, maybe Princess Anna from "Frozen" can convince you to get in the mood! This is "Text Me Merry Christmas" from the group Straight No Chaser and Kristen Bell!




It was the semi-finals last night on "Dancing With the Stars" and Alfonso Ribeiro didn't let an injury keep him from performing last night. In the end, it was Tommy Chong and Sadie Robertson in the bottom two. Tommy went home. So Sadie and Mark, Bethany and Derek, Janel and Val, Alfonso and Witney will all compete in the finals next week. It will be a two-night event with the mirror ball being handed out on Tuesday night!

We talked to Timbaland this morning on the air and he definitely had some thoughts on the Aaliyah movie. Tim posted a series of videos on Instagram, bashing Lifetime's controversial Aaliyah biopic, "Aaliyah: Princess of R&B" which premiered on Saturday night. Among other things, he posted nearly 50 different memes. He said, "People keep asking me if I'm watching that bulls***. Evidently not. No way. Not Timbo." CHECK OUT HIS POSTS and remember they include RAW LANGUAGE!

After a 14-year run, BET's "106 & Park" is leaving TV. The final episode is airing on December 19th. BET will continue to produce various specials throughout the year, including its annual New Year's Eve show, "106 & Party". That said, the show is being "re-formatted" to become an online-only series. The network says, "As we transition to the digital space, we look to continue 106 & Park's role as both a leader of and a mirror to youth culture. We'll have more information to share about how that is to roll out very soon."

Diem Brown has lost her long battle with cancer. She was 32. The reality star got her fame on MTV's Real World/Road Rules Challenge. She passed away Friday in New York City. She had candidly chronicled her cancer fight in a blog for PEOPLE.com. Along the way, Diem became an inspiration for others facing similar battles, founding MedGift, a support registry for those suffering from any illness. She said last month, "I want people to know that the fight is worth it and that's something that's so important for me."

Amanda Bynes says she was "joking" when she fantasized about murdering her parents in a disturbing rant recorded by friends and posted at the urging of her concerned loved ones. In a series of Tweets on Saturday, Bynes explained that she was just kidding when she went into graphic detail about thoughts of slitting her dad's throat and her mom's wrists. Bynes tweeted, "By the way – i was obviously joking about hurting my family – i straight up don't believe in harming a soul." She went on to explain, "I said what I said in jest & if you don't understand that then know I'm in therapy to talk about my dad issues and that will solve my concerns with ppl invading my private life." She then referenced her flirtation with Drake. "When I said I want @drake to murder my vagina did anyone think I was asking him to actually murder my vagina... I think not," declared Bynes. She added, "So take what I say lightly because I am the nicest girl."

Alfonso Ribeiro may be forced to withdraw from "Dancing with the Stars" after injuring his back uring rehearsals last week. Several weeks ago, Alfonso incorporated his infamous "Carlton Dance" from "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" into one of his routines and injured his groin. And while rehearsing for tonight's show the other day, he injured his back because he was overcompensating for that groin injury. On Saturday, he Tweeted, "I'm working really hard to be able to dance Monday. Keep the prayers coming. Love you all."

Remember that new single Usher was releasing exclusively in Honey Nut Cheerios boxes at Walmart? Well, the song, "Clueless", has made its way to E on the Z.

Friday November 14

Katy Perry boyfriend Diplo recently dissed Taylor Swift on Twitter. He Tweeted, "Someone should make a kickstarter to get taylor swift a booty." While Diplo may have been joking, someone actually did create a kickstarter called "Get Taylor Swift A Booty" but her good friend Lorde came to the rescue. She Tweeted Diplo saying, "Should we do something about your tiny penis while we're at it?"

Paris Hilton is now the award-winning Paris Hilton. Her spinning skills might have been bashed by the pros, but Paris Hilton is certainly making her new career pay. And after boasting that she gets paid upwards of $1million a gig, she has now been named female DJ of the year.

LeBron James has a three-week-old daughter, and just like a normal parent, he's waking up a lot in the middle of the night. So he live-Tweeted his daughter's latest sleepless night, which involved him carrying her around, while they listened to old-school jams from Foxy Brown and Michael Jackson. "Whatever you want, Daddy is here for you." A half-hour later, LeBron passed the baton, "OK, enough of me. She's ready for Mommy now. Oh, by the way good morning everyone! I'm tired as H...E...double hockey sticks! LOL."

Kim Kardashian supposedly wanted to "break the internet" with her recent butt photos. But according to the "Wall Street Journal", more people Tweeted about that spacecraft landing on a comet. Granted, they only measured one day, from 11:00am Wednesday to 11:00am Thursday. One of the biggest complaints on social media yesterday was that everyone was talking about Kim Kardashian, when they SHOULD have been talking about how scientists had just done something amazing. They also found that Tweets about the comet were mostly positive, while Tweets about Kim's ass were mostly negative.

If you haven't seen it, check out this video of an eight-year-old Beyonce singing "Home" from "The Wiz". I think she's gonna be something someday.



Justin Bieber has been summoned for questioning in Argentina over an alleged attack by his bodyguards last year. A photographer claims Bieber ordered them to attack him, and he was injured. Bieber has 60 days to show up or an international arrest order will be issued.

We all know those two Kim Kardashian pictures, the one where she's baring her butt and the one where she's balancing a champagne glass on it, would not exist in their current form without Photoshop. Well, the people at Buzzfeed used Photoshop to make the pictures look more like they WEREN'T Photoshopped. In other words, they put some girth back on her. You can see the REAL BOOTY PICTURES HERE! Chelsea Handler posted her own NADED BUTT on Instagram in response and she said, "Guess which one's real." She also blasted Instagram for allowing these nude butts, while continuously taking down topless pics Chelsea posts. Naya Rivera and Lorde both criticized Kim's photo too. Naya said, "You're someone's mother" while Lorde POSTED a link to the photo and wrote, "mom."

It's hard to listen to pop music for too long without hearing a little Ne-Yo. And that damn near killed a woman. 26-year-old Zoe Fennessy of Retford, England has a rare condition called musicogenic epilepsy, where certain types of music cause seizures and vomiting. And for her, the specific voice that triggered it was Ne-Yo's. The doctors aren't sure why but Zoe has to wear earbuds at all times, just in case she's at a store or the gym and a Ne-Yo song comes on. But even then she still hasn't been able to completely avoid Ne-Yo. So in June, Zoe had a lobotomy to remove the part of her brain that was causing the seizures. Sadly, it didn't work. Zoe is still having the seizures, and she's pretty much stuck with them. She says, "People might think it's funny, and I can laugh at myself, but it's ruined my life. I'm left with Ne-Yo causing my seizures, and I will be forever."

"The Voice" is down to its Top 12 after last night's Live Playoffs and we'll start with Team Blake. America saved Reagan James and Craig Wayne Boyd. Blake saved Jessie Pitts. Taylor Brashears and James David Carter were eliminated. Team Pharrell was up next. America saved Luke Wade and DaNica Shirey. Pharrell chooses to save Sugar Joans. Elyjuh Rene and Jean Kelley were eliminated. Over on Team Gwen, America chose to save Taylor John Williams and Anita Antoinette.
Gwen chooses to save Ryan Sill, leaving Bryana Salaz and Ricky Manning to face elimination. Team Adam was up last. America saved Damien and Matt McAndrew, while Adam chooses to save Chris Jamison. Taylor Phelan and Mia Pfirrman were eliminated. That does it for the results, with five women and seven men moving on to the Top 12.

Jennifer Lawrence went on the "Late Show" with David Letterman last night and talked about buying her first house and of course the new "Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" but she also shared something really personal.



"Frozen" grossed more than $1.2 billion. I'd say there was enough money to go around, but remember, when actors sign contracts to do voices for a brand new film, they have no idea how it will do in theaters, let alone merchandise, etc. Well 15-year-old Spencer Lacey Ganus did the voice for the teenage version of Elsa and was only paid $926.20 for her role. She only had four lines, and 30 seconds of screen-time, but still. Let's hope some of these "no name" people are smart enough to put in what I call the "Robert Downey Jr. clause" where they factor in a percentage of the profits from the box office.

There is going to be a "Duck Dynasty" musical and it's coming to Las Vegas baby! It's based on the book written by Willie Robertson and his wife Korie. It will open up in February at the Rio Hotel and Casino. Before you laugh too hard, don't forget this family CAN SING. Last year, they released "Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas" but I just think it's funny that it's coming to Las Vegas.

And as an added bonus, Heidi Klum got naked for Sharper Image. Here is a little video of her photo shoot.

Back in 2010, Usher's car was broken into in Atlanta and the thief took two laptops, two video cameras and some expensive jewelry. Guess what was on one of those laptops?? YEP!! There was an explicit video of Usher and his then-wife Tameka and now it's for sale online for the second time.

Usher's lawyer is fighting to track down the seller. Nicki Minaj is apologizing for the Nazi-like imagery in her new lyric video for "Only". She Tweeted, "I'm very sorry and take full responsibility if it has offended anyone. I'd never condone Nazism in my art." But the director of the video is not apologizing. I've posted the video, but it is NOT THE RADIO EDIT! Plus it puts ALL the lyrics on the screen and there's some that you're gonna wish you didn't read. Just be warned.



We love the "Big Bang Theory" on CBS, but there's a little less to love now. The actress best known for voicing the unseen Mrs. Wolowitz has died. Carol Ann Susi died in L.A. after a brief battle with cancer. She was 62. You remember Howard's mom right?




Khloe Kardashian is under fire after posting a joke involving the KKK and her sisters. She Instagramed a picture of her and her sisters Kim and Kourtney and the graphic said, "The only KKK to ever let black men in." Khloe simply captioned the photo, "True." Some fans found it funny, but most others found it very racist and called her out on it. After the photo racked up over 26,000 comments, Khloe deleted the picture from her page, but you can SEE THE PIC HERE!!

Justin Bieber and Cody Simpson have released the first track from their upcoming joint album. It's called "Home to Mama"

Tyga will be their special guest. He wasn't able to join them for the announcement as he was being handcuffed at the time. Tyga was pulled over yesterday while shooting his video for "Make It Work" driving wrecklessly in a Rolls Royce. The tour will wrap up in L.A. on March 8th. Tickets go on sale Monday with pre-sale beginning on Thursday. We have them all week on the Z Morning Zoo!! Check it out HERE!!

In a new cypher in support of the upcoming "Shady XV" Eminem freestyles that he would punch Lana Del Rey and compares it to the recent Ray Rice controversy. He said, "B***h I'll punch Lana Del Rey right in the face twice, like Ray Rice in broad daylight in the plain sight of the elevator surveillance/'Til her head is banging on the railing, then celebrate with the Ravens." Warning!! This does include BAD LANGUAGE!! Em starts in at 7:00



Last night on "Dancing with the Stars" Tommy Chong made it through again. I don't know how this is happening, but I blame you, America! Ha! That put Lea Thompson and Sadie Robertson in the bottom two. Lea was sent home.

Usher has come up with an awesome way to release his new single, "Clueless". It'll only be available as the prize inside special boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios. These are only being sold at Walmart, where they'll be on shelves across the country beginning today.

Beyonce has plans this weekend! Her sister Solange Knowles is getting married in New Orleans. There's a whole plan for the wedding party that we dug up. On Friday, the group will enjoy a movie night together before Saturday's rehearsal dinner. Then on Sunday, Solange and her fiance Alan Feruson will make it official in front of friends and family. She was just 17 when she married her 10 year-old son Julez's father Daniel Smith, but they divorced a few years later.

Monday November 10

Beyoncé and Jay Z have come up with a fantastic plan for 2015: They're going to spend the year having unprotected sex in a French chateau. At least that's what the British tabloids would like you to believe. A source says, "They're hoping to conceive their second child out there. And taking a year out will allow Beyoncé to have a quiet, stress-free pregnancy.

There was a celebrity death hoax over the weekend. Macaulay Culkin was presumed dead. Again. I even asked Nick at our tailgate party and he goes "This dude dies like once a month!" Anyhoo...he is alive and well after rumors of his "passing" went around all weekend. He performed with his band at a show in Texas on Saturday and posted a picture ala "Weekend at Bernies" to prove his livelihood.

The Soul Train Awards went down over the weekend. The ceremony isn't airing on BET until November 30th, but Chris Brown opened the show with a medley of his old and new stuff. Chris took home the Soul Train awards for "Best Hip Hop Song" and "Best Collaboration." Jodeci, Missy Elliott, Lil' Kim, Da Brat, Total and Mase graced the stage while also honoring the legendary Kool & The Gang. There is a rundown of the performances at Billboard.com.

I think I know why the Pittsburgh Steelers got rocked by the New York Jets yesterday. Their Saturday night Bible study session was crashed by Justin Bieber. Steelers quarterback Bruce Gradkowski, defensive end Cameron Heyward and our own VA boy Arthur Moats all tweeted photos with Bieber. No one knows why he showed up to chapel. HERE IS THE PICTURE with Arthur!

By now I think we all know that the Jonas Brothers purity ring nonsense was a marketing ploy by Disney, but Nick Jonas might have proved that with his recent interview. He said, "Sex is such an important part of a healthy life, in the sense that it's such an intrinsic part of who you are. When your sex life is not healthy, you resort to other things as an outlet." To put it in more concrete terms, not only does Nick HAVE sex, and not only does he LOVE sex, he NEEDS sex.


Jeremih and his entourage went into a Fuddruckers in Montana last week and according to reports, his boys were hitting on a woman at the cash register. She complained to her manager. When the manager told the boys to cool it, they called him racist, and started throwing beer bottles. Chaos ensued resulting in more than $700 in damages. Jeremih Tweeted, "I have traveled all over the world, and never have I experienced such blatant racism that occurred in Billings, Montana. That was an unfortunate situation that should have never happened."

Friday November 7

Selena Gomez released a new song called "The Heart Wants What It Wants" yesterday and guess who it's about? Yep, Justin Bieber. The video starts with an emotional recording of Selena talking about him. In an interview yesterday, Selena said Justin has heard the song. "He thought it was beautiful. I think it was really hard." As for their relationship now, it sounds like they're not together, but in a good place. Selena said, "I support him. I think I always will. I'm upset when he's upset, I'm happy when he's happy. I don't want anything to ever happen to him bad. It hurts me. That's all."



Amanda Bynes' parents are over it. They are handing the conservatorship to someone else. Rick and Lynn Bynes will surrender their legal authority to a mental health professional. Ole mom and dad have determined that they cannot have a functional relationship with their daughter until she's placed under a more effective conservator. They are also transfering control of Amanda's finances to a money manager. And as the final kick in the pants, they are moving to Texas to be closer to their older daughter Jillian.

I woke up super happy this morning to see that Disney has made a big announcement. Buzz Light Year, Woody, Jessi and the whole Round Up gang will be back for "Toy Story 4" but it's set for release in June 2017. And for my "Star Wars" nerds, the full title for the new "Star Wars" movie is: "Star Wars: Episode 7 - The Force Awakens."

I can't even fathom that this is factual, but let's briefly entertain the Big Fat Rumor of the Day. They are saying that Cassie is pregnant. This is not really new. But the rumor isn't just that Cassie's pregnant but the internet is claiming that Puff Diddly Pooh is NOT the father!

Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen became parents last week, when Rachel popped out a baby girl. They named her Briar Rose Christensen. Sleeping Beauty! She was born a week and a half ago, but they just announced it yesterday.
