- 08/18/14--17:15: Beyonce And Jay Z Hit With Lawsuit From Blue Ivy's 'Surrogate'
Ariana Grande’s Problem is absolutely everywhere at the moment – so we could understand if you feel that you have heard enough!
But we can bet you anything that you haven’t heard it like this!
The genius that is Ten Seconds Songs (Anthony Vincent) is back again with another impressive ‘20 musical style’ covers – and this time he has his sights on Ariana’s #1 smash.
His version includes everything from Incubus to Destiny’s Child to Elvis – and we have to say it is crazy entertaining!
He has also done versions of Katy Perry’s Dark Horse and Jason Derulo’s Talk Dirty.
This is pretty impressive stuff. The bride and wedding guests were thoroughly surprised at the groom and his groomsmen who performed a choreographed dance routine during a wedding reception. The dance number was recorded on video and has immediately gone viral on YouTube.
The video has already amassed over 12 million views. The groom enlisted the help of his seven groomsmen for the epic surprise to his wife during their June 21 wedding in California.
The guys started their dance choreography to the tune of Beyonce's "Crazy in Love. Then they grooved to the Destiny's Child's "Bootylicious." After which, the group lip-synced to the Backstreet Boy's "I Want It That Way" which is the Brides favourite.
Why hide if there’s nothing she wants to keep secret? Most people don’t care if they get papped leaving a doctor’s office – at least, not the extent that they’ll hide their face from the photographers. You’d think they would know better, since covering your face is a sure-fire way of getting more attention from paparazzi. Obviously, the paps are just going to work that much harder to take pictures of you if you try to hide your face from them. They’ll want to know what you’re hiding, and trust me, they’ve all seen enough celebrities leaving plastic surgeons offices with swollen faces to know it when they see it.
Jodie’s not stupid, and she’d much rather have people speculating on the reasons for covering up her face instead of knowing that she’s gotten plastic surgery. For people like Jodie Foster [and other members of the A-list echelon], plastic surgery is just something they do to keep the aging at bay. Obviously, most of them don’t go overboard like Nicole Kidman. But trust me, most stars get regular touch-ups with their plastic surgeon, even if it’s just some small botox or injections. Even then, that stuff takes a while to go away, and no doubt Jodie knows that.

George Clooney has written a scathing letter to The Daily Mail, slamming it for publishing a “fabricated story” about his fiancee’s mother opposing his marriage to Amal Alamuddin.
In the open letter, published by USA Today , Clooney, fights back after The Daily Mail published a story saying his fiancee Amal Almuddin’s mother Baria “has been ‘telling half of Beirut’ that she wanted her daughter to marry within the Druze sect’’.
The original report claimed a Lebanese friend of the family in London, said: “She thinks Amal can do better. She has been telling half of Beirut, in fact anyone that will listen, there are five hundred thousand Druze. Are none of them good enough for her?”.
The accomplished Hollywood actor and director, who admits he normally stays away from commenting on rumour and gossip in the media, has now spoken out.
He started his letter by saying: “I want to speak to the irresponsibility of Monday’s Daily Mail report.
“I seldom respond to tabloids, unless it involves someone else and their safety or well being. “The Daily Mail has printed a completely fabricated story about my fiancee’s mother opposing our marriage for religious reasons. It says Amal’s mother has been telling “half of Beirut” that she’s against the wedding. It says they joke about traditions in the Druze religion that end up with the death of the bride.
“Let me repeat that: the death of the bride.”
Clooney then goes on to say his fiancee’s mother is not Druze, and she is not against their marriage.
“I’m, of course, used to the Daily Mail making up stories — they do it several times a week — and I don’t care. If they fabricate stories of Amal being pregnant, or that the marriage will take place on the set of Downton Abbey, or that I’m running for office, or any number of idiotic stories that they sit at their computers and invent, I don’t care,” he said.
“But this lie involves larger issues. The irresponsibility, in this day and age, to exploit religious differences where none exist, is at the very least negligent and more appropriately dangerous.”
He goes on: “We have family members all over the world, and the idea that someone would inflame any part of that world for the sole reason of selling papers should be criminal.”
He also names some of the other media outlets who have picked up the story from The Daily Mail and cited them as their source.
In Clooney’s letter, they included Boston.com, New York Daily News, Gulf News and Emirates 24/7.
In his last paragraph, he concludes with this: “The Daily Mail, more than any other organisation that calls itself news, has proved time and time again that facts make no difference in the articles they make up. And when they put my family and my friends in harm’s way, they cross far beyond just a laughable tabloid and into the arena of inciting violence.”

ALL your favourite NRL players will be shedding their footballer identities and becoming superheroes with Captain America and Ironman going head-to-head in a clash not to be missed.
The Sydney Roosters will become a team of Captain America’s when they play St. George Illawarra who will wear an Ironman jersey designed exclusively by ISC in Round 21.
Roosters captain Anthony Minichiello can’t wait to wear the red, white and blue but of a different nature. “I love it Captain America is red, white and blue similar to the Roosters so I think it fits in perfectly,” Minichiello said.
With kids loving the Marvel Superheros thanks to movies like The Avenger’s, Minichiello believes this is a perfect opportunity to engage children in the game.
“A lot of little kids look up to NRL players and Roosters players and having that attachment to a Marvel superhero as well it adds a bit more excitement.
“It’s a great concept and I’m really looking forward to the game.”
While the Dragons may be turning in Ironmen, Minichiello says the Roosters are ready to channel their inner Captain America and walk away with the win.
“So many people are into the characters so no doubt there will be a bit of banter going on that week with Captain America versing Ironman. “Of course we think Captain America can win!
“It’s going to be a tough game against the dragons but hopefully we can get the upper hand over Ironman,” he said. Manly will be departing from their traditional maroon and white kit and will be in Wolverine yellow for a night when they take on the Brisbane Broncos at Brookvale Oval. The Raiders will be a green machine of a different kind in a Hulk inspired jerseys while the Cowboys become Thor.

You gotta Rugby League. Despite making headlines for all the wrong reasons of late, the ground swell of support for one their own, Alex McKinnon, has been overwhelming.
NRL supporters have donated more than $1.1 million for injured Newcastle forward Alex McKinnon, after a bucket appeal and the sale of wristbands at Hunter Stadium on Sunday raised $30,000 alone.
The huge fund-raising effort comes as NRL players consider whether to endorse a proposed insurance policy that may not pay them as big a sum if they were to suffer such a catastrophic injury. McKinnon, who was left with a "devastating spinal injury" after a lifting tackle in the round-three clash with Melbourne at AAMI Stadium, will need the money to meet the cost of medical bills, housing suitable for his mobility and movement, essential physiotherapy equipment and treatment as he strives to walk again.
The NRL has donated $1 for each of the 136,671 fans who attended the seven matches played so far in this weekend's Rise For Alex round, while AAMI Stadium and the SCG Trust provided an additional $1 for each person who passed through the turnstiles at their venues for Storm-Raiders and Roosters-Panthers games. In total. $162,143 has been raised from ticket sales, and St George Illawarra are still to host Manly at Kogarah Oval on tonight (Monday).

Well it’s finally arrived. The most anticipated movie trailer of ALL TIME. From what I understand about ‘50 Shades’ it’s about a rich bloke (think James Packer…….well, maybe not) who has a secret room in his apartment. It’s a tool shed but you won’t find a Black & Decker anywhere. This Christian Grey bloke has serious issues he needs addressed by a professional therapist.
Anyway if you feel inclined for a bit of titillation go ahead a watch this trailer. I see serious OH&S issues here. - Greg
Mad Max: Fury Road has been in development since 2003. Since then, the film has fluctuated from "could happen" to "pipe dream" and back again. Even after the production began filming in 2012, a release felt uncertain with the film plagued by setbacks.
Today, the first trailer for the Mad Max: Fury Road is available, and it looks like a film not from 2014 or even 2003, but 1973 — in the best possible way. The footage is full of practical effects, and computer animation is used to supplement and embellish images of real cars tearing through the desert at lethal speeds. Where its contemporaries would use CG to fill the frame, Mad Max: Fury Road appears to be using real humans and steel. The film is due for release next year 2015.
Late last week, Nicki Minaj dropped what might be 2014’s Wrecking Ball moment, debuting the shockingly racy cover to her upcoming single, Anaconda.
The artwork quickly amassed more than a quarter of a million likes on Instagram. Much like Miley’s nude swing on a wrecking ball, soon every internet jokester with a rudimentary knowledge of Photoshop was offering up their own take on the artwork.
First, a refresher. Let’s take a look at the original cover, in all its Kardashian-esque glory:
Now to the parodies — all of which, it should be noted, Minaj has posted on her official Instagram account. Seems she doesn't mind being the butt of a few jokes (see what we did there).
While these probably can't be classified as 'Not Safe For Work', you may get a few weird looks if any of your workmates catch you looking at SpongeBob SquarePants lustily kissing Nicki Minaj on the bum. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

A dad on a family vacation snapped this photo of an approximately 18-foot crocodile chowing down on a live bull shark on the Adelaide River.
The 80 year old Brutus apparently has had a few run ins with sharks in his time and decided to take revenge!
Check out the amazing pics!

Tina Seals, a homeless woman from New York, filed handwritten legal documents asking for financial compensation from the famous couple for using her eggs.
She also demanded blood tests be taken but wants to “preserve this relationship as they’re great people.”
Over the years, there have been endless conspiracy theories alleging Beyonce, 32, used a surrogate to carry two-year-old Blue Ivy.
In an interview during her pregnancy, the singer’s bump even appeared to collapse and disappear.
But we’re not sure Seals is the woman to prove Bey was never pregnant. It’s also been revealed that she’s done this twice before, with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West and earlier with Janet Jackson.
Unsurprisingly, her previous lawsuits were quickly dismissed.
WATCH this suspicious video of Beyonce's baby bump. What do you think?

The Emmy Awards are handed next Tuesday morning (Aug.26 from 9.30am Darwin time). If you miss Breaking Bad you’ll get a bit of a fix here by reuniting Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul for this amusing comedic short from Audi for next weeks Emmy Awards.
Cranston and Paul once again play colleagues in a sketchy trade, though this time, instead of cooking blue meth, they're running a pawn shop together. The video also stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus—that makes three Emmy winners—who tries to pawn her 1996 Emmy (for playing Elaine on Seinfeld) to help pay for a private island she's bought in a fit of Celine Dion envy.
