Keith Richards Was Once So Mad At Donald Trump, He Stabbed A Table While Yelling "Get Rid Of This Man!"

Richards recently spoke with the BBC about a variety of things surrounding his long career and life, and when the topic inevitably turned broader -- and to Trump in particular -- the guitarist didn't hold back! Related: Trump Ends Every Night On The Phone With Hannity Phone Call Richards relayed a story about how back in '89, the Stones were on their Steel Wheels tour when it rolled through Atlantic City. There, the band arrived to the show to find out that Trump had taken some, um, liberties in describing the concert -- the show was actually billed as "Donald Trump presents... the Rolling Stones." Wait, WTF?! Come on, Donald!!! For Keith's part, he didn't hold back at all, though. He pulled out a knife and stuck it into the table!! Looking back on that little stab-session, Richards remembered it with the same anger towards Trump that the has now, saying (below): "I got out my trusty blade, stuck it in the table and said: ‘You have to get rid of this man!' Now America has to get rid of him. Don't say I didn't warn you!" Wow!!! Video: Fox News Posts Poll Showing They're Less Trusted Than CNN And MSNBC! Not sure that pulling a knife in this day and age is the wisest thing, but good on Keith for being so consistently anti-Trump over the years! Seems he was dead-right about that very early on!!

Vanderpump Rules Exes James Kennedy & Kristen Doute Find Themselves At The Center Of An Alleged Cheating Scandal! Recap HERE!

During Monday night's episode of Vanderpump Rules, exes James Kennedy and Kristen Doute found themselves at the center of an alleged cheating scandal. As both Kennedy and Doute are in VERY committed relationships, the accusations left them rightfully shook AF. Related: Lala Says J.Law "Sucked Everyone's Dicks" To Get Famous! Both James and Kristen have VEHEMENTLY denied the alleged Mexican vacay hookup, so where did the rumors stem from?? Well, from serial cheater and pathological liar Jax Taylor, of course. Okay, so for the last few episodes, the VPR gang have been down in Playa Del Carmen for Jax's birthday. For most of the trip, Jax was SLAMMED for wanting to take a publicity job and for not treating girlfriend Brittany Cartwright properly. After learning that Scheana Marie tried to set up Brittany with another SURver, it appears that he felt the need to stir shit far away from his front door. We say this, because the Kennedy-Doute liaison gossip all started with Jax. After engaging in a tequila-fueled all-nighter, Kristen and James found themselves hanging out in the pool around 7:30 a.m. In a flashback, fans witnessed James admit to Kristen that a song he recently performed was written "when [they] were dating." Clearly, Bravo is trying to set up a storyline that James still cares for Kristen. When are they gonna stop painting Kennedy as a cheater?? First there was the rumors involving Logan Noh. Then, the show tried to make it seem like James was in love with Lala Kent. Now they're trying to rehash Kristen and James' long over romance?? Smh. Nonetheless, Jax was convinced that James and Kristen did something naughty, as some pillows were strategically laid out. Right, because that's hard evidence a sexual encounter occurred. *Eye roll* On what he witnessed, Jax noted: "I walked out this morning … Kristen is out in the pool area and James grabbed a bottle of tequila … Why, at 7:30 in the morning, would you be in a pool drinking with your ex-girlfriend? I'm not hungover, I know exactly what I saw." Later on, Kennedy participated in a round of golf with Jax and pal Tom Sandoval. When confronted with the hookup allegations, a still drunk James spilled: "Did I what? What did you just say? Hang out with Kristen? I mean, a little bit, but not really." For some reason, James and Kristen's peers were left unconvinced. In a testimonial, Jax claimed that James totally admitted to the infidelity: "He just full out confessed that he did this. He said, ‘Yes, so what? We hooked up.'" As for James, he was adamant (both in a testimonial and in front of his friends) that NOTHING happened. While Kristen maintained her innocence, she did state that she didn't "totally remember last night." Lala, James' bestie and former romantic partner, even weighed in on the gossip: "I believe something happened. Once the dick has entered one of your holes, it's easy for it to re-enter." Sadly, Stassi Schroeder didn't even side with Kristen, as she highlighted that Doute previously cheated on current boyfriend Brian Carter with James. To be fair, the cheating DID occur in the early stages of their romance. Related: Rob Discusses His Relationship With Scheana! Regardless, Kristen and James are maintaining nothing happened. Lisa Vanderpump's ex waitress even showed the following text as evidence of her innocence: "People are starting fake drama for the show and I'm over it. You have a boyfriend, I have my girl, like, I would fucking never and I know you wouldn't either obviously! So cut the shit and don't be mad at me." Well, well! Still, in typical VPR fashion, the episode ended on a dramatic note -- Kristen dumped a drink on James when he called her an "attention seeker." DAMNNNNN. Be sure to catch more Vanderpump Rules drama when it airs on Bravo on Mondays at 9 p.m. ET. [Image via Bravo.].....»»

Keith Richards doesn't -- because he has a feeling she won't even be around by then! In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, the Rolling Stones guitarist claimed the Look What You Made Me Do songstress probably won't be the industry titan she is today. Related: Camila Cabello "In Final Talks" To Open For Taylor! When asked about the superstar's success, the self-described "opinionated bastard" said: "Good luck girl — wish her well while it lasts." Some rolling shade! Although Richards doesn't want Swift to take it personally, as he thinks most younger acts won't last for generations to come. He added: "I've just been around too long to be picking the bones out of kids. It wouldn't be fair of me and I've always been an opinionated bastard anyway." But if we go by the rock n' roll legend's predictions, Tay should have already fallen into obscurity by now. He said of the singer in 2015: "Taylor is a pretty girl… [she's just a] flavor of the month." We'd say more like flavor of the millennials. The question is, will she grow up with her fans or continue to use media beefs to sell records? We'll have to wait and see... though we have a feeling somewhere in a London pub, Taylor is penning the lyrics to her new song, Sticks and Stones (May Break My Bones, But Your Words Are Irrelevant). Do U agree with the rocker? [Image via Media Punch.].....»»

The catchy chorus goes, “Girl you got a body like Sriracha, every time I bring you ‘round the homies wanna watch ya, got it from your mama but that ain’t what she taught ya, that’s why I call you lil’ ‘racha.” The Barkeley-born singer is emerging as a hyper creative, singing, dancing wunderkind. “My music is a modern take on nineties R&B with a little Bay Area edge,” shares 16-year-old Marteen, who just signed to Warner Bros. Records. “Coming from Northern California, you have a certain mentality. It’s an indescribable attitude.” Click inside to read JustJared.com‘s exclusive interview with Marteen… MARTEEN ESTEVEZ INTERVIEW JJ: Congratulations on Sriracha, the video is amazing! Riding on the hood of the car is such an awesome shot. Did you conceptualize the video? ME: Thanks. Not completely, but I wanted to make sure it represented the Bay Area since that’s where I’m from, and the standing on cars comes from the hyphy movement of the early 2000′s. We shot the whole thing in West Oakland and had a lot of fun. JJ: How did the song come about? Did you write it and who did you work with on the song? ME: The song started kinda as a joke one day when I was eating some fried rice with Sriracha on it in the studio and told my producer JR [Rotem] that we should make a song called Sriracha. I told him I wanted it to have a fun feel and he started playing the piano part that’s in the song. The beginning of the hook came to me right away and I started playing around with it. We knew as soon as I laid down the first couple melodies that it was gonna be dope. We showed it to my homies Marty James and YMTK a couple days later and they helped us finish it. JJ: Do you really love Sriracha as a hot sauce and spicy food in general? What are your favorite spicy foods? ME: I do love Sriracha actually. I don’t put hella of it on stuff, but I like to spice things up a little. I also really like Frank’s hot sauce. I don’t eat a lot of overly spicy foods but I mess with curry and love Thai and Indian food. JJ: Name the top five celebs who have bodies like Sriracha. ME: Well even though I say “body like Sriracha” in the song I’m not actually talking about a perfect body cause that could be different for everyone depending on what you like, but I more mean an attitude and confidence. I would say my top five based on that is Rihanna, Gal Gadot, Zendaya, Ella Mai, and Cardi B. Betty White a lil’ racha too tho. (laughs) JJ: You have a unique sense of style. Who do you look to for fashion inspiration? Are there certain movies, eras or people who have informed your look? ME: Yeah I figured out that I really like clothes from the 80′s and 90′s. My dad jokes that I like grandpa clothes cause I see old people all the time and say how fire their clothes are. (laughs) Fashion is one of our biggest ways to show self-expression and I like to wear things that make me feel happy. JJ: Your new haircut is very polarizing. People either LOVE or HATE your version of the bowl cut. What made you get it done and how long will you be keeping it? ME: Yeah it’s funny cause you’re right, people are like WTF is up with your hair or they really like it and respect me having my own style. I cut it cause I had the same haircut for awhile and wanted to change it up. I wanted to get something that nobody my age really had and started looking at haircuts online to find something different. I ran across this barber from London who made up this cut called the London Fringe which is what inspired my haircut. I like being different so it’s okay if people don’t always get it cause most people are used to everyone being the same. I’ll probably rock it till I’m tired of it and want to try something new. JJ: You grew up in San Francisco’s Bay Area. What’s your ethnic background? What was your childhood like? How does that reflect in your personal style, your music, and your life in general? ME: I’m mixed with Colombian and white, but my family is a rainbow of different races. I went through some things growing up with family members close to me who were struggling with drug addiction and other stuff, but it’s taught me a lot about what I want and don’t want for my life, and helps me make better decisions as I get older. I moved around a lot as a kid too and grew up in seven different cities in the Bay. I’ve lived in the hood, middle class neighborhoods, and a nice neighborhood. I think being able to see different things and perspectives has made me who I am. It gave me an appreciation for different cultures, and gave me understanding for people from all backgrounds. All of this has played a part in my music, my message, and who I am. I definitely want to be a voice for positivity and hope. A lot of kids don’t come from the best backgrounds and they need to know that they can still do anything they dream – like I am. JJ: You recently went to the Teen Choice Awards. Who are some new teen artists you’ve been obsessed with recently? ME: I can’t really think of any teen artist that I’ve been listening to lately, I listen to a lot of just slightly older artists – PnB Rock, Ty Dolla $ign, Calvin Harris, and Amine. JJ: What are some of your favorite restaurants in LA? Where are your favorite hang-out spots in LA? ME: I love BeaBea’s in Burbank…they got the best breakfast. Mama Hong’s in Burbank got the best Pho. SweetGreen got the best salads. Pink Pepper in Hollywood got some bomb Thai, and Portos always smacks on the pastries and Cuban food. I also love Tender Greens, Chick-fil-A, and hella other places. I love food in general. (laughs) As far as hang-out spots, I mostly kick it at friends’ houses, but I love going to Venice Beach. It reminds me of the Bay for some reason. JJ: When can fans expect new music? Any collaborations? Is there an EP or album on the way?​ How soon? ME: I’m dropping a project very soon, but I don’t have an exact date yet. I’m not focused on getting any collabs right now, but we’ll see. They can definitely count on me dropping more music and visuals over the next couple months!.....»»

Five Women Detail James Franco"s Alleged Sexually Exploitative Behavior To The Los Angeles Times

James Franco may be downplaying the sexual misconduct allegations brought against him, but his alleged victims are standing firm. As you've likely heard, amid The Disaster Artist star's big win at the Golden Globes on Sunday, several women called Franco a hypocrite for wearing a Time's Up pin as they claimed he had previously been sexually [...] James Franco may be downplaying the sexual misconduct allegations brought against him, but his alleged victims are standing firm. As you've likely heard, amid The Disaster Artist star's big win at the Golden Globes on Sunday, several women called Franco a hypocrite for wearing a Time's Up pin as they claimed he had previously been sexually inappropriate with them. While James has since made the press rounds to defend his innocence, five women have spoken to The Los Angeles Times to detail their experiences with the A-lister. Related: Ronan Farrow Talks The Abuse Allegations Against Woody Allen Sarah Tither-Kaplan, who attended the acting school founded by Franco and starred in several of his projects, said James' public Time's Up support at the Globes "was like a slap in [her] face." Of the five women who spoke with The Times, four claimed to be ex students and one noted that James was once her "mentor." On her working experience with the Freak & Geeks alum, Tither-Kaplan noted: "I feel there was an abuse of power, and there was a culture of exploiting non-celebrity women, and a culture of women being replaceable." Having taken Franco's Sex Scenes class, Sarah jumped at the opportunity to work professionally with her teacher. Sadly, the experience was not what the actress expected. Apparently, while filming an orgy scene with the Ivy League educated star three years ago, James removed the protective plastic guards that covered the actresses' vaginas amid simulating oral sex on them. Also, per Tither-Kaplan, one actress was sent home after she balked at James' direction about acting topless: "I got it in my head pretty quickly that, OK, you don't say ‘no' to this guy." Although, to James' credit, he did apologize to Sarah amid the Harvey Weinstein scandal. The complainant confessed: "I want to give him credit for at least being open to communicating with me. I felt that he was still not really taking accountability for the environment on the sets." Man, oh man. Actress Violet Paley also vocalized an upsetting encounter with James, as she opened up about the romantic relationship she had with him in 2016. According to Violet, James pressured her to perform oral sex while they were sitting in a car. She relayed: "I was talking to him, all of a sudden his penis was out. I got really nervous, and I said, ‘Can we do this later?' He was kind of nudging my head down, and I just didn't want him to hate me, so I did it." Eventually, Violet stopped performing the sexual act as she told Franco she spotted someone near the vehicle. On how she'd handle the situation today, Paley said: "I would say, ‘No, stop, get out of my car.' The power dynamic was really off." Paley reached out to Franco about the incident, but he defended that he hadn't done "anything illegal." He also insisted that he was a "changed man" and acknowledged it was wrong of him to pursue a sexual relationship with someone who was recovering from substance abuse. Related: Here's What Tommy Wiseau Would've Said At The Globes… Two additional students, from a course taught at Playhouse West, confirmed that they've had negative on set experiences with the industry vet. Both women, named Hilary Dusome and Natalie Chmiel, have claimed that Franco became angry when actresses on set refused to be topless while filming. Dusome recalled: "I felt like I was selected for something based on my hard work and my merit, and when I realized it was because I have nice [breasts], it was pretty clear that was not the case. I don't think he started teaching with bad intentions, but he went down a bad path and damaged a lot of people in the process." Smh. Chmiel confirmed that James got "visibly angry," and added: "He just took advantage of our eagerness to work and be a part of something bigger. We were all these up-and-coming actors who were so hopeful." Although more than a dozen students have vouched for Franco's acting school, named Studio 4, enough performers have expressed dissatisfaction with James' teaching method. In addition to claims that the 39-year-old would fall asleep during class, a few former students have suggested that Studio 4 falsely promised to funnel actors into the superstar's personal projects. Los Angeles based actress Devyn LaBella shared: "They would tell us that smaller parts in their projects were being held exclusively for students — often they were opportunities for extra work or parts that required nudity. I didn't have agency representation at the time, so I thought, ‘Well, I'm not going to be able to get into good auditions, so this might be my opportunity.'" After uploading auditions to a website, she admitted that no one she knew ever heard back. A woman, named Katie Ryan, suggested that Franco seemingly implied there were roles for those who performed sexual favors on him. She stated: "[James] would always make everybody think there were possible roles on the table if we were to perform sexual acts or take off our shirts." Allegedly, for years, Ryan received audition requests from James to play "a prostitute or a hooker." How awful. Unsurprisingly, Franco's lawyer Michael Plonsker denied each of the troubling allegations and advised The Times to refer to James' denial on The Late Show. Not to mention, Rabbit Bandini co-owner Vince Jolivette defended that Studio 4 "was always run professionally." We're sure this isn't the last we've heard about this scandal, be sure to check back for any updates. [Image via Regina Wagner/Future Image/WENN.].....»»

James Franco Latest Labeled Sexual Deviant After Golden Globes Win

James Franco is being accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women after winning a Golden Globe for The Disaster Artist. Although many actresses are pointing the finger at Franco, Ally Sheedy is the lady who got the ball rolling. I can think of no better time to ask these women “why wasn’t anything said before” […] The post James Franco Latest Labeled Sexual Deviant After Golden Globes Win appeared first on wwtdd. James Franco is being accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women after winning a Golden Globe for The Disaster Artist. Although many actresses are pointing the finger at Franco, Ally Sheedy is the lady who got the ball rolling. I can think of no better time to ask these women “why wasn’t anything said before” but speaking out against such atrocities when they actually happen draws less attention to the victim. Timing accusations just right may mean the difference between a few celebrity blogs picking up the story or having your own E! TV special like Rose McGowan. There’s no doubt that allegations of sexual misconduct and harassment are turning into a sniper sport. It’s hunting season in Hollywood and all big names are big game. Ally Sheedy’s now deleted comments: Why is a man hosting? Why is James Franco allowed in? Said too much. Nite love ya. Ok wait. Bye. Christian Slater and James Franco at a table [at the] Golden Globes #MeToo. James Franco just won. Please never ask me why I left the film/tv business. It’s clear that all men in attendance who wore “Time’s Up” pins are under thorough investigation after the recent Franco outing. Men in “Time’s Up” pins are silently signaling to every women who has seen their penis to not ruin their career. Because the definition of sexual harassment is changing everyday and retroactively retracting your consent is now an option for elite women. If the allegations are true James pretending to be an ally of a cause to launder his past sins falls under being one of the oldest tricks in the book. Most Americans love a redemption story. Mel Gibson recovered. Give Weinstein a few years if he somehow manages to walk away a free man and TWC will reign supreme once more, rising like the Phoenix from the ashes. Cute #TIMESUP pin James Franco. Remember the time you pushed my head down in a car towards your exposed penis & that other time you told my friend to come to your hotel when she was 17? After you had already been caught doing that to a different 17 year old? — Violet Paley (@VioletPaley) January 8, 2018 Hey James Franco, nice #timesup pin at the #GoldenGlobes , remember a few weeks ago when you told me the full nudity you had me do in two of your movies for $100/day wasn’t exploitative because I signed a contract to do it? Times up on that! — Sarah Tither-Kaplan (@sarahtk) January 8, 2018 The post James Franco Latest Labeled Sexual Deviant After Golden Globes Win appeared first on wwtdd......»»

The 36-year-old Grey’s Anatomy actress took to Instagram over the weekend to slam the director’s recent interview with Rolling Stone where he denied all sexual harassment allegations against him. “I want to be clear that the predatory director I wrote about in the article I posted a few days back, was James Toback,” Caterina wrote along with an essay she recently shared about alleged experiences with James when she was 17. In the essay she wrote when she was 17-years-old, Caterina only reveals a “fairly prominent director” made sexual advances towards her during an audition. “The article was written 17 years ago,” Caterina wrote in her original post. “Many industry people knew about it and encouraged me to stay silent. I didn’t, and it directly affected my career. I stand with all the women who were brave enough to tell their stories. I also stand with all the women who don’t feel that they can speak up, even now. Let’s shine light into all the darkest corners.” Fellow actresses Julianne Moore, Selma Blair, and Rachel McAdams have also come froward to share stories of sexual harassment by James. Click inside to read Caterina’s posts… In response to James Toback’s crass denial in Rolling Stone, I feel I must corroborate the stories of these women. I want to be clear that the predatory director I wrote about in the article I posted a few days back, was James Toback. The article was written 17 years ago. Many industry people knew about it and encouraged me to stay silent. I didn’t, and it directly affected my career. I stand with all the women who were brave enough to tell their stories. I also stand with all the women who don’t feel that they can speak up, even now. Let’s shine light into all the darkest corners. #metoo @rollingstone @hillelaron A post shared by Caterina Scorsone (@caterinascorsone) on Oct 27, 2017 at 8:46pm PDT I wrote this article 17 years ago. I was a teenager. After it was published, I quit the business in reaction to the veil of silence surrounding this issue. I eventually returned to acting as an adult, supported by show runners like Shonda Rhimes. She is an example of the good side of this industry. These examples exist. Let’s be done with the other kind. #metoo A post shared by Caterina Scorsone (@caterinascorsone) on Oct 16, 2017 at 12:04pm PDT.....»»
