We've got some tragic news for the "Magic Mike" fans out there. It sounds like Matthew McConaughey may not be returning for the sequel, "Magic Mike XXL". In a recent interview, comedian Gabriel Iglesias said, "Word has it Matthew is probably not going to be involved in this one because he's worth a lot of money - that whole Oscar thing, the nerve right?" Matthew just won his first Oscar earlier this year for "Dallas Buyers Club". For what it's worth, Gabriel will be back. He played the drug dealing strip club DJ in the first movie. "Magic Mike XXL" is hitting theaters in July of next year. When I checked on IMDB, it said both Matthew and Channing Tatum are locked in, but the rest of the cast is "rumored."
Just last week, Chelsea Handler said she realized she had to quit her show "Chelsea Lately" because she was sick of talking about Justin Bieber, etc. so she bailed on her talk show.

It won't premier till 2016 but in the meantime, she'll do a series of comedy specials for Netflix which will debut on October 10th as well as four "docu-comedy specials" which will be unleashed next year.

Lady Gaga scrapped her video with R. Kelly for their song "Do What You Want" and now we definitely know why. We've seen a clip of the video and it's basically glorifying rape. R. Kelly plays a doctor, and Lady Gaga is the patient. It featured R. Kelly saying, "I'm putting you under and when you wake up, you're going to be pregnant." He's standing over Gaga, who's naked under a sheet. He reaches under the sheet, and Gaga starts moaning. That sequence is controversial enough on its own, not to mention the fact that it stars R. Kelly, and was shot by controversial photographer Terry Richardson, who have both been accused of being sexual predators. WARNING: The suggestive rape stuff aside, Gaga is showing a LOT of skin so this footage is definitely R-RATED!
