Justin Timberlake Covers Vanity Fair Italia
Timberlake stares into your soul on the cover of Vanity Fair Italia. The pop star opens up to the fashion mag mostly about his upcoming animated film Trolls out Oct. 27, but strayed away for a moment to comment on whether an artist must be slightly tormented to write songs that connect.
The article appears in Italian, but Google Translate had this to say: “It depends. In the past, suffering helped me to compose. ‘Cry Me a River’ was written in a moment of pain, and the whole world knew.”
Still talking about it, King?

Caitlyn Jenner’s ‘I Am Cait’ Reality Show Cancelled!
The plug has been pulled on Caitlyn Jenner’s reality show, I Am Cait. After two seasons, E! has decided to cancel the show after two seasons. an E! spokesperson on Tuesday stated:
"We are incredibly proud of the two seasons of ‘I Am Cait,’ a groundbreaking docu-series that sparked an important and unprecedented global conversation about transgender people, their struggles and triumphs. Caitlyn and E! have mutually decided not to move forward with another season at this time. She will always remain a part of the E! family, and we look forward to continue following her journey as she appears on ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians.’"
I Am Cait chronicled the life of Caitlyn Jenner after her gender transition. The eight-part one-hour documentary series debuted on July 26, 2015, on the E! network. The series focuses on the “new normal” for Jenner, exploring changes to her relationships with her family and friends. The show additionally explores how Jenner adjusts to what she sees as her job as a role model for the transgender community.
In its first season, critical reception of I Am Cait was generally positive. Critics particularly praised the series approach to the social issues of the transgender community and its influence on the way Americans see and understand transgender people in general.
The show’s informative and serious tone was also noted, and how it differed from Keeping Up with the Kardashians, a reality series that Jenner has starred in together with her family. In October, the show was renewed for a second season, which premiered on March 6, 2016.

Well, he’s been there for a while, but they finally got to meet today. The diminutive ball of energy and talent not only got to greet Zac Efron, but she got a smooch on the cheek from the superstar and posed for snaps!
If you weren ‘t aware, Miss Simone first gave public adulation to Efron back in March, when she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. When Ellen brought up her crush, Simone couldn’t stop giggling.
“Is it just ’cause he’s gorgeous, is that why you like him?” Ellen DeGeneres asked, to which she responded a confident, “Yes!”
Later via Twitter, Efron congratulated Biles for her incredible performance during the qualifying rounds.
According E! News, Efron gave props to Biles throughout the Olympics over social media, but the actor managed to make his way over to Brazil to say hello in person.
A few photos posted of the pair on Twitter show them canoodling for the camera, with Biles flashing the biggest smile you could imagine while Efron puckers up next to her.
Their little lovefest was for her Snapchat, where you can hear Zac ask Simone to tell him when it’s going. She says “it’s going” and he kisses her on the cheek. All the girls in the background scream, because duh.
Biles repays the favor for a Boomerang clip posted to her social media, showing the gymnast give a quick peck on Efron’s cheek.
And to make sure he wouldn’t start no ish back home, the Hollywood star also posed for pictures with more of the Team USA ladies, all of whom who couldn’t hide the excitement on their face.

Bill Cosby’s Lawyer Monique Pressley Resigns
Monique Pressley will no longer represent Bill Cosby. The information was confirmed in recent court filings and confirmed by Cosby’s spokesperson. The Washington, DC based attorney will no longer be on the comedian’s team. This news, comes after his main attorney Christopher Tayback left a few months ago. Pressley has yet to comment on her departure.
As previously reported, Cosby has been the subject of publicized sexual assault allegations. With the earliest alleged incidents allegedly taking place in the mid-1960s, Cosby has been accused by more than 50 women of either rape, drug facilitated sexual assault, sexual battery, child sexual abuse, and/or sexual misconduct. Earlier sexual assault allegations against Cosby became more public after an October 2014 accusation as part of an onstage performance by comedian Hannibal Buress went viral, and many additional claims were made after that date. The dates of the alleged incidents span from 1965 to 2008 across 10 U.S. states and one Canadian province.
Cosby has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and had not been charged with a crime prior to December 30, 2015, when a warrant was issued for his arrest for a felony sexual assault charge brought by Pennsylvania prosecutors based on accusations by Andrea Constand.
Most of the acts alleged fall outside the statutes of limitations for criminal legal proceedings, but numerous civil lawsuits have been brought against Cosby. As of November 2015, eight related civil lawsuits are active against Cosby, including two that also target Cosby’s lawyer and one that also implicates his wife and manager Camille Cosby. In a December 11, 2015 interview, Gloria Allred said that she is representing 29 of the alleged victims. Allred also said that there are more alleged victims who have contacted her and that some of those that had contacted her would be coming forward. In July 2015, court records from Andrea Constand’s 2005 civil lawsuit against Cosby were unsealed and released to the public. In his testimony, Cosby admitted to casual sex, involving use of Quaaludes, with a series of young women, including an admission that his use of drugs in the 1970s was illegal.
In the wake of the allegations, numerous organizations have severed ties with the comedian, and previously awarded honors and titles have been revoked. Reruns of The Cosby Show and other shows featuring Cosby have also been pulled from syndication by many organizations. More than a dozen colleges and universities have rescinded his honorary degrees.
On December 30, 2015, Cosby was charged with sexual assault in Pennsylvania and a warrant for his arrest was issued. Cosby reported to court and was arraigned on the charge. On May 24, 2016, a Pennsylvania judge ruled that there was enough evidence for the case to go to trial. Cosby will remain free on $1 million bail until his trial. Each charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years; the sentences could be served either concurrently or consecutively as determined by a sentencing judge, if Cosby is convicted.

According to TMZ, Hill filed court documents requesting a judge to prevent Faith from performing at the Bad Boy Reunion show in Atlanta, in addition to his request Hill is suing Evan’s for $100,000 for canceling his September 10th concert at Wolf Creek Amphitheater.
Evans' reason for cancelling her performance, Hill claims was The Godfather movie quote, "It's not personal, it's only business."

Hill went on to reveal that Faith's agent texted him, "I can't give up 25 dates for 1. I tried to work it out, she was going to do both shows but it's impossible."

Idris Elba’s crush on Meryl Streep
Idris Elba has a crush on Meryl Streep. The 43-year-old actor admitted he became so starstruck when he met the 67-year-old actress that he could barely speak.
Idris said, “My celebrity crush is Meryl Streep. When I met her, my tongue swelled up in my mouth!”
Idris also revealed that he looks for “patience and understanding” in a woman and he had his first girlfriend at the age of 11.
He told Us Weekly, “I met my first girlfriend at the age of 11. She was lovely. She wouldn’t let me kiss her, though.”
Idris’ close pal Tom Hiddleston is currently dating Taylor Swift, after the couple we introduced at the Met Gala and shared a dance, but Idris revealed he also danced with Taylor at the same bash.
He said, “I danced with Taylor Swift at the Met Gala, and Anna Wintour a couple of times, too.”
Meanwhile, Meryl may be Idris’ star crush but he is also the object of affection for a number of famous women, including Rebel Wilson.

She said, “Sorry Idris Elba you’re making me a bit nervous, I’m just psychologically programmed to want chocolate on Valentine’s Day.”
The blonde beauty also got starstruck by the amount of good looking actors nominated, and joked that she was excited about “consoling the four losers.”
She quipped, “Five really attractive men have been nominated and I really look forward to congratulating the winner, although I’m looking forward even more to consoling the four losers.
RG3 divorcing as wedding-day his ‘secret texts’ re-emerge

Robert Griffin III’s four-year stint in Washington lasted longer than his marriage.
A league source confirmed to Cleveland.com the Browns quarterback and wife Rebecca Liddicoat are in the process of divorcing after being separated for several months. The former couple, who wed on July 6, 2013, are parents to Reese Ann Griffin, who was born in May 2015.
While teammates and coaches are said to be supportive of Griffin, his breakup with Liddicoat won’t be without a bit of controversy.
Griffin was accused of sending questionable text messages to one-time Hooters waitress Meredith Barber on his wedding day. Barber has re-emerged, and earlier this week, she reached out to Busted Coverage, asking the website to take down several stories detailing her alleged relationship with Griffin.
“It’s old news and I’m attempting to move on from that page/rumor in my life … I would really appreciate it,” Barber wrote in timing that now seems curious.
As the story goes, after Barber’s pal tweeted about the blond beauty crashing Griffin’s big day, Barber responded with a screen grab of a text exchange between her and an individual named “RgIII” on her phone.
“I could show Becky this though,” Barber added.
In the conversation, which was obtained by Busted Coverage, “RgIII” flashed his abs for the cameras after calling Barber “bae.” Though Barber reportedly tried to sell the website inappropriate photos of the quarterback, a pal of Griffin’s claimed her allegations were false.
“We both know that Meredith is looking for attention/money. I know this what you do for a living and thought that this would be a golden opportunity but the fact of the matter is that is completely false,” William Mallow told Busted Coverage. “I was with Robert the night in question, and there was zero texting of other girls, much less selfie stomach shots.”
Griffin has purged all traces of his estranged wife from his Instagram account. And the 26-year-old is focused on his football future during the demise of his marriage. The Heisman Trophy winner was named the Week 1 starter by Browns head coach Hue Jackson.
