Andrew Garfield Threw A “Tantrum” Over Presenting With Batkid At The Oscars

  • Nobody says no to Batkid. “The Amazing Spiderman” star Andrew Garfield was supposed to initiate “Batkid,” aka five-year-old Miles Scott, into an official superhero during the Oscars ceremony on Sunday night. Miles has cancer and his Make-A-Wish Foundation wish to save the city of Gotham (San Francisco) captivated the world. But Garfield didn’t like his script lines and began ad-libbing them during dress rehearsal. When producers wouldn’t let him change his lines, he “had a tantrum” and “stormed off.” Miles’ family, who were at the dress rehearsal, were supposedly “devastated.” The Oscars producers ultimately cut the initiation from the awards show completely, but still called in “Captain America” star Chris Evans to meet with Miles. Page Six’s source called Andrew Garfield a “spoiled brat” and I have to say I agree. [Page Six]

Drake Whines That Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Death Took Away His Rolling Stone Cover

“[Rolling Stone] also took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue. I’m disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil. I’m done doing interviews for magazines. I just want to give my music to the people. That’s the only way my message gets across accurately.”

Drake is angry at Rolling Stone for allegedly publishing quotes in a forthcoming article which throw shade at Kanye West, whom he has performed with and been mentored by in the past. He claims he “never commented on Yeezus for my interview portion of Rolling Stone” — though that doesn’t make clear whether he dissed Kanye while a reporter was within earshot or the quotes were made up. (I am guessing the former.) Either way, complaining he is “disgusted” because Rolling Stone replaced his cover with one HONORING A BELOVED ACTOR’S DEATH is super egotistical and tacky. You’ll have plenty of time for more covers while you’re still, you know, alive, Drake. All respect due? Yeah, right. (Drake has since deleted the tweets about PSH. The internet never forgets, Drizzy.) [Stereogum]

Stephen King Tweets About “Element Of Palpable Bitchery” In Post About Dylan Farrow’s Accusations

  • Yesterday, the writer Mary Karr tweeted a (fantastic) blog post from The New Inquiry about the sexual abuse accusations against Woody Allen by his daughter, Dylan Farrow. The piece addresses the assumption that Dylan is lying about the abuse she suffered, as if it’s part of a conspiracy to harm Allen’s “good name.”  In response to Karr’s tweet, Stephen King replied, “Boy, I’m stumped on that one. I don’t like to think it’s true, and there’s an element of palpable bitchery there, but …” He later tweeted, “Have no opinion on the accusations; hope they’re not true. Probably used to wrong word” and then “Still learning my way around this thing. Mercy, please.” [The Daily Dot] Keep reading »

Lorde’s Birth Certificate Has Hit The Internet, And Yes, She’s Actually 17

lorde-performs

A copy of Lorde’s birth certificate has been presented to the world this week, courtesy of The Hairpin. The form proves that Lorde really is 17, which will no doubt anger the cult of “Lorde birth truthers” that believe she’s lying about her age and is actually much older.

I suppose there’s a possibility that the New Zealand birth certificate could be falsified by some bizarre stretch of the imagination, but who really cares? Apparently, the truthers do, and they insist that Lorde is 10 years older and pretending to be a child prodigy to rake in more attention. Keep reading »

Meanwhile, Justin is supposedly holed up in a Miami mansion with his father — who was drinking and drag racing with him the night of his arrest  — and ignoring his management. They reportedly had a private jet on standby for him all day Thursday, however. [TMZ, Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
