A teenage YouTuber has responded after Pink accused her parents of exploiting her. Pink recently shared her thoughts on 14-year-old YouTuber Piper Rockelle, who has over 8 million subscribers, writing "How many kids like Piper Rockelle are being exploited by their parents?” and adding, "At what point do the rest of us say … 'this isn't okay for a 13 yr old [sic] to be posing in a bikini whilst her MOTHER takes the photo?!?!'" Piper insists she is not being used by her parents, explaining, “My mom doesn't make me do anything. In terms of me in swimsuits, it's summer! My friends and I live in the water. Why do we shame people for that? I'm just having fun. Pics of teenagers in bikinis having fun are not sexual. They're only sexual if you view us that way." As for her mom Tiffany, she insists she’s just supporting her daughter, sharing, “I'm just a mom like any other who loves her daughter and would do anything for her."
Camila Cabello’s new movie “Cinderella” debuts on Amazon Prime Friday, and while Billy Porter plays her fairy godmother in the film, in real life she has other ideas of who would make a great godmother. Camila said, "I feel like Taylor Swift would be my fabulous godmother. I started out and I was a teenager when I met her, like 18 or something, and she always gave me great advice. She was always really supportive of me and really nurturing and sweet. So in the industry, I would say her." As for finding true love, she said on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” that she had a crush on her now-boyfriend Shawn Mendes for a long time. Talking about the first time they came on the show to promote their first duet, Camila shared, "I remember he said 'I like her, she doesn't like me,' or something like that. At the time, I was completely in love with him and I thought he was the one who wasn't in love with me back. I sat here and I remember being like 'what the...." She said afterwards, she confronted Shawn about the interview insisting he knew that she liked him. She added, “It was so stupid. We were sixteen. Look at us now."

A bunch of Michael Jordan’s clothes are being auctioned off, and one pair of boxers in particular is expected to bring in about $500. According to an auction insider, the shorts were “regularly” worn by Michael and show signs of “heavy use” (frayed edges, loose threads, etc.). The clothes came from bodyguard John Michael Wozniak, who worked for Michael once and won a bunch of stuff from Michael in a coin-toss. See the video at tmz.com. And yes, Michael even wrote his name on the inside of his undies.

James Corden held up traffic in Los Angeles on Friday with a flash mob featuring the cast of the upcoming “Cinderella” remake. Together with Camila Cabello, Billy Porter, and Idina Menzel, James and the Mob (sounds like a movie title right there) performed Jennifer Lopez’s “Let’s Get Loud.” James was dressed up as a giant mouse. Someone with a front-row seat at the stoplight shot a video from their car, which is all over Twitter now. Twitter is loving it, with comments like, “Imagine being late to work because james corden had to do hip thrusts at you in a rat costume,” and “Seeing James Corden in a rat costume one more time will be the start of my villain origin story.”

I’ve made it clear that I’m a total wimp when it comes to horror movies, but it seems even the star of a horror movie has her issues too. “Candyman” star Teyonah Parris was on Seth Meyers promoting the movie, and she said that she used to say “Candyman” in the mirror when she was a kid but that she and her brothers would bail before they said it five times. Same rules apply on set. According to Teyonah, “I only said it on set when I had to, I’m not messing around with that any other time, I’m not testing fate.”

Fans are doing a double take at the latest Justin Bieber billboard. A giant, full-size building billboard shows Justin dressed in a Balenciaga leather-jacket, but his bottom half is dressed in Kims Kardashian's SKIMS undies. Obviously, one billboard was going up over another, but the way they line up is too perfect. Check out the pic at tmz.com.
Britney Spears says her dad is trying to extort money from her as a condition of him stepping down from the conservatorship and she's not having it. According to TMZ, Britney's legal team claims Jamie is asking for around $2 million, some of which will be used to pay his lawyers and her former business manager. Britney's lawyer, Matt Rosengart, has responded, saying, "Britney Spears will not be bullied or extorted by her father. Nor does Mr. Spears have the right to try to hold his daughter hostage by setting the terms of his removal. This is not about him, it is about the best interests of his daughter, which as a matter of law, mandate his removal."
There’s always been this doubt as to whether or not Kylie Jenner deserves the title of “youngest self-made billionaire” as many question the term “self-made” when it comes to Kylie and her money. Yes, she used her own money when she was 17 to fund her cosmetics company, but it was money she made riding the waves of her older, famous sisters when she appeared on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” But, as momager Kris Jenner sees it, using her own savings was what would be Kylie’s “motivation” and “drive” to succeed, not that fact that she was born into wealth with many powerful connections.
The Internet has been obsessed with Lieutenant Eric Fields for his uncanny resemblance to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Now The Rock has finally commented on the viral situation. The Rock shared a picture of the Morgan County, Alabama police officer alongside one of himself. "Wow!" he captioned the side-by-side snaps. "Guy on the left is way cooler." He also thanked Fields for his service and added, “stay safe.” Now that they’ve gotten The Rock’s attention, the Morgan County Police department has invited Dwayne to do a ride-along with Lt. Fields. And if he actually does it, they’re hoping that his presence will bring attention to the plight of another cop., Sergeant Chris Dillard, who is one year shy of retirement and suffering from Lou Gehrig’s disease. They're hoping that the national attention on their department will help raise awareness and funds for Sgt. Dillard’s family and medical bills, according to the Bleacher Report. Come on, The Rock, you can’t say no to that – especially considering Lt. .Fields muscles are way bigger (believe that)!
