  • Orlando Bloom Allegedly Tried to Punch Justin Bieber Last Night

    Josh Duboff

    Orlando Bloom, Justin BieberOrlando Bloom, Justin BieberIn the unlikeliest feud since, well, Freddie Prinze Jr. vs. Kiefer Sutherland, reports have emerged that Orlando Bloom allegedly threw a punch at Justin Bieber in Ibiza last night. The two were both partying at Cipriani on a Tuesday night (Paris Hilton and Diddy were reportedly also in attendance, which makes sense, since we imagine Paris Hilton and Diddy are never not at a Cipriani in Ibiza), when the 37-year-old Bloom was seen attempting to sock the 20-year-old Bieber. TMZ has posted video footage, of course, though the reported swing (Bloom allegedly missed contact) is not captured in the film. Bieber's scream of "What's up bitch?" is audible in the clip, however, which would seem to be how he taunted Bloom after ducking his punch. (We hear the video will be pushed hard for a best live-action-short nomination at the Oscars.) According to TMZ, Bieber then left the club, and "the crowd applauded."

    Now, why would Orlando Bloom punch Justin Bieber? Is he fed up with

  • Kate Middleton, Prince William and George's Month-Long Summer Vacation

    The Royal FamilyThe Royal FamilyThey have spent the last two days supporting Great Britain at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, but William and Kate can look forward to a well-deserved month off in August.

    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have cleared their diaries and will be holidaying in the U.K., Royal Watch can reveal. William and Kate usually jet off to the private island of Mustique, but they are planning to stay a little closer to home this summer.

    Sources say they will be taking Prince George to Scotland next month to Charles and Camilla, at their Highland home, and they will also take Prince George to see the Queen and Prince Philip at Balmoral. According to my sources, the couple will spend the rest of the time off in Norfolk, where the final refurbishments are being completed at their new country home, Anmer Hall, on the Queen's Sandringham Estate.

    Kate has been hands-on with the renovations and has helped with the

  • See Prince Harry’s Enthusiastic, Double-Thumbs-Up Photobomb

    Prince Harry photobomb Prince Harry photobomb We're getting close to a point where you could imagine a five-year-old bounding into his parents' room and crying, "Mommy, Daddy, if I photobomb a selfie that some strangers are taking, will I become a prince, too?"


    SEE MORE: Is Justin Bieber About to Get Arrested?

    In other words (in case this vivid scene we've just painted didn't make the point): the British royals are really getting into this photobombing thing. Just last week, the Queen made headlines for giddily angling her way into a selfie taken by two field-hockey players at the Commonwealth Games; and before that, Kate and William have both gotten their photobomb on, as well. (We know, we know, we're using a very loose definition of "photobomb" here, as none of these examples truly captures the "Surprise! You had no idea I was going to crash your photo!" nature of a standard photobomb; but, we're dealing with a group of people who shun Twitter and are still listening to Linkin Park-that they are even in the Read More »from See Prince Harry’s Enthusiastic, Double-Thumbs-Up Photobomb
  • Freddie Prinze Jr. Really Doesn’t like Kiefer Sutherland

    Richard Lawson

    Freddie Prinze Jr.Freddie Prinze Jr.If you were a sentient teen in America in the late 1990s and early 2000s, you remember Freddie Prinze Jr., he of the boy-next-door good looks, the dewy-faced star of seminal adolescent fare like She's All That, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and, of course, Summer Catch. He was a big man on the nation's campus, beloved and admired and perhaps even a little bit feared. But as happens with most teen idols, his career faded as he and his fan base got older. So you would think that in 2010, nearly a decade after the height of his fame and power, Prinze would have been grateful to get a season-long role on the popular jingoism melodrama 24. And yet, in a new interview with Good Morning America, Prinze says that the case was anything but.

    He had a miserable time! He almost quit the biz because of it. Why? Because of the show's star, Kiefer Sutherland. Prinze candidly said, "It was terrible. I hated every moment of it.

  • Kate Middleton Makes the Best Faces when Watching Sports

    Josh Duboff

    Kate Middleton Kate Middleton Acting students worldwide will no doubt study candids of Kate Middleton at sporting events for years to come, as the duchess has proven that, over the course of any given sporting event, she will reflect, on her face, the full spectrum of emotions humans are capable of demonstrating. What we're trying to say is: the woman gets into her sports.

    At Wimbledon a few weeks ago, Kate, delightfully, grimaced and bit her lip and shrieked and laughed, all while Andy Murray struggled on the court during his eventual quarterfinal loss. And then yesterday, at the Commonwealth Games (which we know primarily as the Event Which Delivered Onto Us the Glorious Queen Selfie Photobomb), Kate-joined by William and Harry (in, adorably, matching white button-downs)-took in boxing, gymnastics, and hockey competitions.

    And, again, Kate was really feeling it. We have our OMG face (top left), our OMFG face (top right); our "I've got a silly secret and I'm not gonna tell" face (bottom left), and

  • Miley Cyrus Gave Someone a Tattoo

    Richard Lawson

    Miley CyrusMiley CyrusWe all know that Miley Cyrus likes a dang tattoo. She's into the art, into the meaning behind them, into the lifestyle they suggest. She is not alone in that sentiment, in these inked-up days of ours. But now Cyrus has crossed some sort of divide, becoming the tattooer instead of the tattooee. (Tattoee is the planet Luke Skywalker is from, right?)

    As this is just how young people relate information now, Cyrus has posted an Instagram photo that shows her about to ink her friend's leg. Unless this is posed, it would appear that someone has allowed Miley Cyrus to give them a tattoo. Is that something you or I would do? Probably not. But we don't know Miley Cyrus the way this person does.

    The person in question is one Cheyne Thomas, a constant but curious presence in Cyrus's life. The legend goes that Thomas was working in a Starbucks before Cyrus plucked him from obscurity and made him her personal

  • Prince George is Single-Handedly Reviving Endangered Species

    The Royal FamilyThe Royal FamilyWe know George can sell out clothes; babies have devoted their entire, nascent lives to imitating him; Justin Timberlake has shouted him out (George was no doubt too busy to return Justin's texts). So it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise that the young royal, who just turned one, now seems to be saving entire animal populations.

    O.K., "saving entire animal populations" might be a little strong, but George is giving at least one a major assist. The bilby, a "rabbit-like Australian marsupial species," received one of the largest P.R. boosts an animal species has likely ever received (second perhaps to Britney Spears's 2001 V.M.A.'s performance) when the prince visited the Tarongo Zoo in Sydney in April and met his namesake, George the bilby, in one of the Australia-New Zealand trip's most reproduced images. George gave the animal a smile that seemed to say, "Hey, kid, I know the weight of the world can be Read More »from Prince George is Single-Handedly Reviving Endangered Species
  • Prince Harry’s 30th-Birthday Plans

    Katie Nicholl

    Prince Harry Prince Harry Now that the celebrations for Prince George's first birthday are over, there's another occasion in the royal calendar to start thinking about-Prince Harry's 30th.

    Harry reaches the big 3-0 on Monday, September 15, but don't expect any Vegas-style partying.

    I'm told the William and Kate are in charge of the celebrations, which will be a suitably grown-up affair, complete with a dinner party at the palace. Harry's best friend, nightclub owner Guy Pelly, has offered to throw a party for Harry on his actual birthday, at Sloane Square hot spot Tonteria (where the big night is Monday), but the birthday boy is under strict instructions to leave at 10:30 P.M.

    "Harry would like to go, but he knows he can't have a crazy night out and misbehave. For him, September is all about the Invictus Games and he doesn't want anything overshadowing that," our source tells us.

  • The Queen Elegantly Photobombed a Selfie

    Josh Duboff

    The Queen photobombs a selfie The Queen photobombs a selfie There is a long (by "long," we mean "few-months-long") tradition of royals crashing selfies. Kate Middleton did it. Prince William's done it solo, as well as with Prince Harry. Charles has probably done it, but whoever's selfie he crashed was probably like, "Eh, this is fine, but no need to tweet it or anything . . ." (George has yet to crash his first selfie; we hear he'll do it for no less than $500,000-which seems, if anything, too low.)

    And now the Queen has joined the club.

    Jayde Taylor-a member of the Australia Commonwealth Games hockey team (if you've never heard of the Commonwealth Games, check out this amusing and informative Last Week Tonight with John Oliver segment)-was taking an innocuous selfie with one of her teammates, when who should creep up behind them but the Queen of England. And she's smiling! (Apparently she has gotten over any anguish related to her morphine-positive race-horse.)

  • North West Has Taken Her First Steps, Shuffles Closer to World Domination

    Kim Kardashian and North WestKim Kardashian and North WestIt is now clear that when Neil Armstrong said, "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind," it had nothing to do with the moon or anything, as we all assumed; he had instead, due to some freak atmospheric break, seen a vision up in space of a Kim Kardashian Instagram that would be posted some 55 years in the future.

    Yes, our future president-one-year-old North West-took her first steps yesterday, which explains why the trees appear greener today, why the birds are chirping merrier melodies than anyone has heard before, why your bus arrived two minutes early today-the environment is responding correspondingly to this seismic development.

    The moment was captured via Instagram, but of course, as Kim posted a picture, taken by Kanye West, of Kim cradling a yellow towel-sheathed North. She captioned the shot, which already has over 1.1 million likes, "Our baby girl finished one week of swimming
