Teen actor, Jaden Smith, the son of Will and Jada Smith, is said to be considering emancipation from his famous parents, because he wants to live in a home by himself.
The "Karate Kid" star turns 15 in July, and his father has revealed that the teenager is eager to be allowed more freedom, even if it means taking legal action.
Will Smith says that he has reservations about Jaden's request, but accepts that young star wants control of his own life.
Will said,"I know if we do this, he can be an emancipated minor, because he really wants to have his own place, like ooh. That's the backlash."
He added, "On the other side, if kids just want to have command of their lives, I understand."
Harry Styles from One Direction seems to be enjoying the single life! Perez Hilton recently said that Harry has been sleeping with multiply women a night! A source even said… “It’s incredible, he seems to have at least three or four girls in his room every night. He’s totally out of control. Harry is totally brazen about it. He spots a girl he likes at a gig or when he’s out and about, goes right up to her and invites her to his hotel. After nearly every gig on the tour so far he’s made sure there are loads of girls lined up at his hotel so he can take his pick. He’s had up to a dozen waiting on a single night.” Does this make you think differently of Harry!?

"I know who I am and I know who I'm not," he wrote. "My message is to believe. My albums could be about anything but my messages have been to never say never and believe, not to believe in me, but to believe in yourself .. I honestly don't care if you don't believe in me because I believe in me, and look where that's gotten me so far ... I'm writing this with a smile on my face and love in my heart. Letting u know first hand how I feel rather than have these story linger. I'm a good person with a big heart. And don't think I deserve all of this negative press I've worked my ass off to get where I am and my hard work doesn't stop here. I'm growing up finding myself while having people watch me and criticise me everyday I think I'm doing pretty damn good."
The post ended with a not-so-subtle jab at the tabloid press, as well as another young star who has had to deal with her fair share of distressing headlines. "And to those comparing me to Lindsey Lohan," he wrote. "Look at her 2012 tax statements ;)"
Lohan is pissed and is striking back saying "I have learned to brush off insults from hairless little boys.."
A study was conducted at the University of Michigan to find out what constitutes cheating...
Here is the list they came up with:

Lil Wayne didn't seem to be bothered by some of the backlash from his anti-Miami Heat rant (like that letter from Uncle Luke) but he seems a bit shocked that Pitbull actually took the time to pen a diss track. Or maybe disappointed is a better word? Wayne took to Twitter yesterday to respond to what he heard.
Earlier in the week Pitbull dropped "Welcome to Dade County," aiming at Wayne with lines like, "You talk Miami, if you talkin' heat/ Moral of the story: Don't sh-- where you eat," and surprisingly enough it prompted a response. Wayne kept it simple, only writing, "Dam pit bull bro I thought u was kool."
Pitbull then responded with, "I am cool papo but imagine me shitting on anything new orleans which I was just there for super bowl the big easy I loved it. The world shows me love and vice versa but miami is all I got no disrespect just the truth."
Another friendship lost? In an interview after his All-Star Weekend sound off, Wayne did try to clarify that he meant no offense to the residents of Miami. "I ain't apologetic for being who I am," he said. "I am who I am, and doing what I do, is what I do. As far as the city of Miami, I do wanna apologize for the misunderstanding and whatever has everybody thinking that I have something against the city, because that's totally wrong. These people accepted me with open arms since day one, since I was a Hot Boy. It's just totally sports, this ain't got nothing to do with the city of Miami."
“The song ‘Trouble’ is definitely about Harry,” a source close to the situation confirms to TMZ.com exclusively. “Taylor told Harry it’s about him. She references flying around America following One Direction’s tour in the song.”
If you’ve read the liner notes of Taylor’s Red album, it makes sense that the song is actually about her One Direction beau. The clue Taylor writes for “I Knew You Were Trouble” reads “when you saw me dancing.” This line refers to when Taylor danced in the audience to One Direction’s performance at the Kid’s Choice Awards in March 2012.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS SONG! CHECK IT OUT NOW!
Facebook has become a very important part of life for many people. Sometimes it’s to get gossip, other times it’s to check in on what friends are up to. But new studies show that many of the users are getting tired of being tied in to Facebook on a constant basis. And there are many parents that actually want to get their kids off of Facebook, because it has become too much of a distraction. One father is paying his daughter $200 to get off the social media website!
According to CNET.com, the story of the father that is paying his daughter to get off of Facebook is not what it may seem. This wasn’t even his idea, it was hers! Rachel Baier has become very bored with Facebook, and has found it too distracting. And since her father has probably told her in the past that he agrees, she thought maybe she could make some money with the deal.
Now, the craziest part of the deal is how she gets her money. She doesn’t get it all up front. She won’t get her first $50 until mid-April. And she won’t get the entire payout until mid-June. And the craziest part is the deal is only for the next 6 months. She doesn’t have to stay off of it forever! How about you? Would you quit Facebook for $200?

This little nugget of information is for all the kids out there. Tattoos are permanent! A tattooist (in Russia) inked his name across his girlfriend’s face less than 24 hours after they first met.
They met on an online chat room and say they fell head over heels in love. She allowed him to sign ‘Ruslan’ over her face in giant Gothic script on the day they met. They are now engaged. Check out the before/after below:
No word if she is happy with the work or not. I sure hope she is, because that isn’t going to come off. Would you ever do something like this for your man?
Lady Gaga is now touring for her "Born This Way Ball". She’s pretty much been on the road for two years so I guess she’s entitled to demand a thing or two!
So what does the room that Lady Gaga chills in before showtime look like? In true Gaga form, it’s all “glam rock” fashion and furnished with white leather couches, fresh roses and black satin drapes, according to the superstar’s rider. That seems normal right?!?!
Now for the freaky stuff!! For some reason Lady Gaga needs a mannequin with puffy pink pubic hair in her backstage suite! Gross! And why does it have to be puffy!!
She apparently has an obsession for lavender requesting 2 large fluffy lavendar towels, 2 lavendar hand towels, 2 lavendar wash cloths, which must be available to the pop star “at all times!” Plus lavendar handsoap, body wash, face soap, 2 new seafoam luffas, small candle in the bathroom, fresh yellow, lavendar or white roses, and a steamer.
I want pink puffy pubic hair.....
Nine black former "American Idol" contestants -- from various seasons -- are banding together to SUE the show ... claiming they were all FORCED off "Idol" as part of a racist (and illegal) plot to boost ratings.
TMZ has obtained a letter, submitted to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission by NY attorney James H. Freeman -- in which he asks for permission to sue Idol and FOX on behalf of his clients ... who have all appeared on the show: FYI, Freeman is required to file with the EEOC before filing suit.
Corey Clark (Season 2), Jaered Andrews (Season 2), Donnie Williams (Season 3), Terrell Brittenum (Season 5), Derrell Brittenum (Season 5), Thomas Daniels (Season 6), Akron Watson (Season 6), Ju'Not Joyner (Season 8) and Chris Golightly (Season 9).
In his letter, Freeman claims he noticed something fishy about "Idol" when Jermaine Jones was kicked off on March 15, 2012. Producers had claimed Jones failed to inform them about multiple outstanding warrants out for his arrest.
Freeman claims he conducted an investigation into the show -- and found that producers had only publicly disqualified 9 other people from the show since it first hit the air ... and they all happened to be black.
Freeman now alleges that "Idol" has been conducting a "cruel and inhumane" scheme to exploit and humiliate black contestants for ratings.
According to the letter, Freeman believes the annual "scheme" begins during the background check stage of the show -- when producers ask wannabe contestants the question -- "Have you ever been arrested?"
Freeman claims the question is a violation of CA employment law ... and since his clients were essentially applying for "employment" with Idol, the show was FORBIDDEN from asking contestants about their arrest history.
But Freeman claims ... the ill-gotten information from the question, coupled with arrest records obtained by private investigators working for Idol, were used to humiliate the black Idol contestants on national TV ... and in the process, perpetuated "destructive stereotypes" about black people.
Freeman also claims the show made his clients appear to be "violent criminals, liars and sexual deviants" ... when they weren't.
What's more ... Freeman claims the show has "NEVER once publicly disqualified a white or non-black American Idol contestant in the history of the eleven season production."
According to Freeman, NONE of the contestants who were disqualified from the show based on their criminal backgrounds were convicted of the crimes for which they were charged at the time of their disqualification.
But Freeman adds, "Yet their personal and professional lives remain permanently and severely impaired by [the show's] continuing violations of our nation's laws."
Freeman's letter is the first step towards a lawsuit -- and we're told as soon as he gets the green light from the EEOC, he plans to file the docs in court.
We spoke to "Idol" honcho Nigel Lythgoe ... who tells us he was "shocked" by the "ridiculous" allegations.
He explained, "We treat everybody the same ... no matter the race, religion or sex."
"I think we've always had a fantastic share of talent from contestants both black and white ... I don't think I've ever seen racism at the show."
A rep for FOX declined to comment.
FYI -- "Idol" has had 3 African-American winners in its history -- Ruben Studdard, Fantasia Barrino and Jordin Sparks
Sooo if you're the type of person who likes hitting a home run on the first date, I've done some research and made a list of five foods that are the best wing man a..food..can be..? lol
According to European lore, this member of the lily family could set just the right tone for your romantic evening in. In 19th-century France, grooms were given three servings of this natural aphrodisiac before - ahem - moving on to dessert (of the calorie-burning sort). The added ginger will help stimulate the circulatory system.
Long regarded as a symbol of fertility, almonds are high in vitamin E, magnesium, and fiber. But it's the aroma that makes this dish a sensual feast - the smell of almonds is said to arouse desire and passion in women.
Oysters are brimming with zinc, which raises sperm and testosterone production, and his libido. They are also high in omega-3, which wards off depression and promotes general well-being. Maybe the saying should be "happy as an oyster!"
Get in the habit of quaffing vino regularly, and sparks could fly: According to Italian scientists, a daily glass of red can send your lust into overdrive.
Hello, liquid Viagra! Researchers have found that drinking this can lift testosterone levels up to 30% - which makes men and women feel friskier.
The men’s lawyer says he’s measured Subway sandwiches at 17 different stores, but has failed to find even one that was a full 12 inches long.
Two New Jersey men sued Subway this week, claiming the world's biggest fast-food chain has been shorting them by selling so-called footlong sandwiches that measure a bit less than 12 inches.
The suit, filed Tuesday in Superior Court in Mount Holly, may be the first legal filing aimed at the sandwich shops after an embarrassment went viral last week when someone posted a photo of a footlong and a ruler on the company's Facebook page to show that the sandwich was not as long as advertised.
At the time, the company issued a statement saying that the sandwich length can vary a bit when franchises do not bake to the exact corporate standards.
Stephen DeNittis, the lawyer for the plaintiffs in the New Jersey suit, said he's seeking class-action status and is also preparing to file a similar suit in Pennsylvania state court in Philadelphia.
He said he's had sandwiches from 17 shops measured — and every one came up short.
"The case is about holding companies to deliver what they've promised," he said.
Even though the alleged short of a half-inch or so of bread is relatively small, it adds up, he said. Subway has 38,000 stores around the world, nearly all owned by franchisees and its $5 footlong specials have been a mainstay of the company's ads for five years.
DeNittis said both plaintiffs — John Farley, of Evesham, and Charles Noah Pendrack, of Ocean City — came to him after reading last week about the short sandwiches.
DeNittis is asking for compensatory damages for his client and a change in Subway's practices.
The Milford, Conn.-based firm should either make sure its sandwiches measure a full foot or stop advertising them as such.
He points to how McDonald's quarter-pounders are advertised as being that weight before they are cooked.
Subway did not immediately return a call to The Associated Press on Wednesday.
Justin Bieber went off on a woman at a gym in North Carolina Tuesday ... mocking her workout, cussing at her ... and possibly even spitting in her water bottle ... so claims the woman -- but Justin's peeps say it's all BS.
The woman behind the accusations is Colette Harrington -- a NC radio host who claims she was minding her own business, working out at the gym at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel.
According to Colette, Bieber -- who had a concert in Charlotte on Tuesday -- strolled into the gym with two other people -- one appeared to be his trainer and the other appeared to be a backup dancer or singer.
Colette says she approached Bieber and asked for a picture, but JB said no.
She says she continued working out, but then heard Justin and his posse mocking her workout routine.
Colette explains, "I always count out out loud my reps. Then Justin starts imitating me and whenever I'd get to 20 he and his buddy would say 'Shut the F'ck up.'"
Colette says she ignored the group -- but claims they continued to mock her as she counted out her reps.
Then, according to Colette, someone ... and she thinks it was Bieber or someone in his group ... SPIT blue Gatorade into her water bottle while she wasn't looking ... and she actually DRANK the spit-orade.
"I did not look at my water bottle before taking a drink."
Colette says she filed a complaint with the hotel after the alleged incident. We reached out to the hotel, but they wouldn't confirm or deny her story.
Now, Colette says she's going to sell the spit-filled water bottle on eBay and plans to use the money to upgrade the kitchen at her local Ronald McDonald house, where she volunteers.
Bieber's rep tells us .... the woman is dead wrong. Justin and his trainer were in the gym, and they were making snide comments to EACH OTHER but absolutely NONE were directed at the woman.
Check out my buddy Justin Time with his latest "My City Is The Greatest"

Britney Spears has been seen for the first time without the ring on her finger... She returned the $90k engagement ring to Jason Trawick on her own.. I think she can afford to buy a new one with her new Vegas deal in the works...
ps.. she's not as cute as she was when "hit me baby one more time" came out.. lol
Soooo Beyonce sang the National Anthem at Obamas second innauguration. It was pretty terrible.. Check out the video now at the link below courtesy of TMZ.
Singer Britney Spears, whose contract with "The X Factor" reportedly won't be renewed, is said to have instructed her management team to find her a recurring role in a sitcom.
"Britney's manager, Larry Rudolph, is reading television scripts that the singer could accept. Britney's dad, Jamie feels that having his daughter on a sitcom would be a good fit for her," radaronline quoted a source as saying.
Britney needs to be kept busy and a structured environment such as a television sitcom would be a natural fit for her.
"There is also a possibility that Britney could get her own television sitcom, but that appears to be more of a long shot. She actually has very natural comedic talents and is very funny," said the source.
According to sources, Spears would not be returning to "The X Factor" after recently completing her one-year contract as a judge alongside Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato and L.A. Reid.
"Britney, who was signed on a one-year deal, is the first person who will be expected to have her salary chopped. She is on a $15 million contract.
Meanwhile, she is reportedly still struggling to resolve her differences with fiance Jason Trawick, 41. The couple are said to be sleeping in different rooms.
"Britney and Jason aren't sleeping in the same bedroom and have not been for some time. It's extremely complicated because he is one of her conservators. It's only a matter of time until they formally break-up," said another source.
Sporting his new wedding ring, Justin Timberlake was spotted out in Fasano, Italy this morning ... after tying the knot with Jessica Biel yesterday.
Some of the famous peeps in attendance reportedly included JT's pals Andy Samberg and Timbaland, as well as Jessica's former "7th Heaven" co-star Beverly Mitchell.
The couple had been engaged since December after splitting for a brief time in 2011.
It's the first marriage for each, though Timberlake has been in several high profile relationships -- most notably with Cameron Diaz and Britney Spears.
Peeps... I launched the ENC Do Not Date List last night.. there's a CRAZY amount of "psycho ex's" in ENC.. Who would have guessed?! =P lmao
Monday at 10pm, call up with your relationship from hell story! Love your face... just sayin'.
Justin Bieber is an overprotective son. His mother Pattie Mallette, who vowed to remain chaste until marriage, is getting back into the dating game, and at 37, she’s quite the catch. After being set up with ‘The Bachelor’ host Chris Harrison, courtesy of Ryan Seacrest, Biebs expressed extreme displeasure at the thought. Attention all potential Pattie suitors: the Biebs is a tough crowd.
Both Mallette and Harrison tweeted the same photo of themselves nuzzling up to one another, but Bieber was quick to point out to matchmaker Seacrest that he is not feeling it and is not warming up to the idea.
“They both came to my show, but I’m pretty sure they came separate,” he said coolly. “I’m still not cool with it, but I guess I’m going to have to be.”
While we appreciate and adore the Biebs being “the man of the house” and looking out for his mother, he really doesn’t have a choice in the matter and is going to have to live with it.
We don’t think there is any reason for a beef with Harrison other than the fact that it’s his mom and he has been the No. 1 guy in her life for the past 18 years, a role he isn’t quite ready to relinquish.
Ease up, Biebs. Your mom deserves happiness. And if things gets serious and Harrison somehow breaks her heart, well, then he’ll have to deal with you.
The two youngsters both have powerhouse vocals, fitting for anyone who chose Aguilera as a coach. Their coach chose Beyonce‘s ‘Best Thing I Never Had’ — troubling for the average Joe Schmo trying to tackle the song in the comfort of their cars, but Rivera and Yacoub were excited to take on the task of singing a Beyonce song, and started their rehearsal with much ferocity.
While it seemed that Yacoub would be the natural winner of the battle, she sometimes came off too powerful and oversang; Rivera on the other hand, had a sweet and soft demeanor to her, which Aguilera appreciated.
It was clear from the previews that one of the girls would be stolen, so it kind of made the excitement of seeing which girl would make it through to the knockout rounds. Then again, both are deserving of a coach, so it’s truly a win-win.
Oh, Justin Bieber, you're such a prankster. Such an expertly conceived, precision-executed, hoax-style prankster.
Seems that "stolen" laptop and camera we learned about Wednesday weren't stolen at all. Rather, the notion that "personal footage" from Bieber might be circulating out there was the first piece in a prank puzzle that came together Friday as the Biebs launched his newest music video, "Beauty and a Beat," featuring Nicki Minaj.
[Updated, 4:05 p.m. Oct. 12: The laptop really was stolen Tuesday night in Washington state, Bieber's publicist told the Associated Press late Friday. "Be very clear, the laptop was indeed stolen in Tacoma. That was NOT a hoax," she said via email. Tacoma police told the AP that a police report was filed Wednesday.]
An alleged naked picture of Justin got the media treatment Thursday, with some outlets losing it a little along the way, as you can see in the laugh-riot KTLA video above. Then "threats" regarding the footage surfaced in the afternoon through a brand-new Twitter account, @gexwy. The user posted videos allegedly from the laptop and taunted Bieber for having lousy password protection on his equipment.
"notice us and answer your dms [direct messages] or we are going to put the other videos from the camera out!" @gexwy threatened, which should have been a clue that something was hinky, as Bieber would have to be following said user to get DMs in the first place.
Then came threats to "show the world" on Friday.
And Bieber responded: "no matter what you have and what you post tomorrow i know my fans wont leave me. screw it."
"haha. that is what u think. we will see tomorrow at NOON. last chance," @gexwy told Bieber, adding a note to fans, "and the rest of u can just shutup. u have no idea what i have and when u see tomorrow u will feel different."
Cut to Friday, 9 a.m. PDT: "I told you I would post something WORTH watching and talking about," @gexwy posted, tagging Bieber and Minaj and linking to the video you can see below. It's a fun romp through a water park with Bieber and many dozens of dancers.
Minaj even slyly got into the game on Twitter, hinting Thursday night, "uh oh...the barbz have a BIG surprise cmng tmrw," referencing Barbara Walters as she had during the fallout of her maybe-feud with Mariah Carey.
So, has this been well-played, or do you feel played? Let us know in comments.
Wait, what? Squirrel for dinner?
A fire that ravaged an apartment complex in Holland Township, Mich. reportedly started because a resident was a little clumsy with a propane blowtorch, which he was using to prepare a squirrel carcass for eating.
The blaze started at about 12:30 pm Wednesday, Michigan Live reports. The resident was on his third-floor patio, using the torch to singe the fur off the dead animal, when he accidentally ignited the deck.
The flames rapidly got out of control and spread to the roof, according to Wood TV. Ultimately, eight apartments were destroyed, several more sustained significant damage, and the roof of the apartment complex caved in.
The Lansing State Journal reports that the American Red Cross is providing assistance to the dozen families who have been left homeless.
No one was injured in the blaze.
Rednecks..... What can I say.. hahaha
Nelly's tour bus was raided yesterday morning in Texas. Authorities found ten pounds of marijuana, 30 baggies of Molly (pure ecstasy), and a loaded .45 caliber hand gun. Luckily for Nelly, he had a DFG (designated fall guy) haha.
What was he going to do with ten pounds of weed? Smoke up an entire stadium of people? Celebrities these days... SMH!
A source close to the Lohan family confirms to ETonline that the cops were called out to Dina Lohan's home Wednesday morning.
The source says Dina and her oldest daughter Lindsay Lohan got into a fight at a New York City nightclub early this morning that later led to law enforcement showing up at Dina's Long Island home.
I think the Lohan Family might be a few notches below the Honey Boo Boo family... Just sayin.....
