Iggy is primarily only known for her feud with the far superior Azealia Banks. Recently, Iggy has been downplaying how much of an affect Azealia has on her life during various past interviews as evidenced through her outrageous outburst over the weekend unfollowing all her fans who attended Azealia Banks’ show in LA.
Iggy went on a rant after her followers kept asking her about her EP release since Azealia came out with both an EP and a mixtape in the time frame promised. Frustrated – she released the following tweets:
“Don’t ride the fence” = You can’t like more than one artist!
“Weeding the garden” = Unfollowing fans!
Her fans then started to notice a pattern in the type of fans she was unfollowing – Azealia Bank fans!
Iggy responds then deletes the tweet after getting dragged some more:
She is pretty much irrelevant right now so the fact that she treated the few fans she has left like dirt is so disrespectful.
Thank you Mods <3

She looks amazing! and luca is so cute.
The boys, who have just returned from their hugely successful 'Up All Night' North American tour initially laughed off and joked about the bromance but now admit it is affecting they way the boys act around each other. Louis even hinted that it was affecting his current romance with student Eleanor Calder. According to MTV News in an interview with Tumblr, the Donacaster native said: “This is a subject that was funny at first but now is actually hard to deal with as I am in a relationship.”
But it isn't just his relationship with Eleanor that is being affected, Louis confessed that things had changed between him and Harry and that they can't do anything in public together without it being misconstrued. “Me and Harry are best friends, people look into our every move,” he explained, “it is actually affecting the way me and Harry are in public.
“We want to joke around but there seems to be a different rumour every time we do anything.”
Claiming it is just boys joking, the 20 year-old added: “I act the same way with Harry as I do any of the other boys and my childhood friend Stan.”

Over the last several months, many people in the Sherlock Holmes fandom have been very upset that Lucy Liu is playing (Joan) Watson in the CBS modern adaptation of Sherlock Holmes, which is named “Elementary”. Understand that this is a modern adaptation that cannot fully resemble the current Sherlock Holmes films nor the current BBC TV series due to certain legal issues.
Essentially, the fandom is upset because Watson is Asian and a woman – especially the Asian part.
Here’s an example of a racist reaction on Tumblr:
I was okay with the woman idea, because I thought that would add an interesting twist, and the series already sounded pretty terrible so what could it hurt? And that’s what reboots are for right? Being horrible bastardizations of the original story, with an interesting twist?
But apparently Lucy Liu is going to be playing himher. Now, let me start off by saying I have nothing against Asians or any other race whatsoever. But I honestly think this is pretty fucking retarded, primarily because she’s Asian.
John Watson is a British white male, and you’re turning him into an Asian female?
I’m sorry but how do you even what?
I’m not being racist here, it’s just that that’s about as far from canon as you can possibly get, short of make him a giant crab monster from space.
At Comic Con Lucy Liu responded to the racial controversy:
“I mean the thing is, when you go into anything everyone has an opinion. And when we did Charlie’s Angels, everyone was like ‘This is going to be a huge flop, this is a disaster, this is a mistake.’ And all I could think about was, ‘Wow this is amazing,’ because they’ve cast an Asian person as one of the Angels, and when I was growing up it was the idea that it was all Caucasian. So that was, for me, like, ‘who cares about anything else’?
And for me this time it's about that Watson is a female. And a lot of people who are of ethnic background have come up to me and said, It's so great that you're playing Watson and you’re representing a big, you know, minority section of actors and people in the world.”
The tagline: “New Season. Same Towels” is amusing sounding for those who haven’t seen the show, but fans know it refers to a first season episode where Schmidt (Max Greenfield) couldn’t figure out why his towel was so damp. He discovers Nick (Jake Johnson) uses the same towel over and over again and never washes it, causing germ-phobic Schmidt to freak out.
To catch up on the show, Fox will start re-airing the first season of New Girl starting this Thursday, with season two premiering Sept. 25.
So excited for this to come back! I'm hoping it stays flawless like the first season was, even though it took me a few episodes to get really into it tho. I just really like all the characters tbh! Which is your fave, ONTD?
MTV News was lucky enough to catch Martin toward the end of his time at Comic-Con for a quick chat about his thoughts on the new castmembers, why we haven't seen Mance Rayder, when we'll see Theon Greyjoy again and his dread regarding a certain climactic end-of-season scene. (No spoilers below, only vague hints of action to come that readers of the books are very familiar with.)
"I've not met [the new castmembers], but I've seen many of them audition on videotape through the wonders of the Internet, and I think they're amazing," Martin said. "I'm especially excited about Diana Rigg, who I fell in love with when she was Emma Peel [in 'The Avengers'], so it's pretty amazing that she's in my show, and she'll be wonderful as the Queen of Thorns."
And what news is there of the casting of that feared leader of the Free Folk, Mance Rayder?
"Well, we're still looking for Mance Rayder," Martin revealed. "They're still holding auditions, so if there are any British actors out there who want a terrific part, Mance Rayder! Contact our casting director — we need one. As of a couple days ago, they hadn't cast that part yet. We're still auditioning and talking to people," he said, adding that we'll probably meet Rayder early on in the season, in one of the first few episodes.
Martin also offered some happy news for the Theon Greyjoy/ Alfie Allen fans out there who were left wondering about the fate of the Ironborn wannabe conqueror.
"I think Alfie will be back, I think so," Martin said. "But only [executive producers] David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] know for sure."
Other topics covered during our brief chat was the scene from his third book Martin is most looking forward to seeing in the show, as well as how much of the book will be adapted for season three and how much will be saved for season four.
"I don't know that the word 'looking forward to' is the word I want, but I'm anticipating but also dreading a certain event with the initials R.W., and that's all I can say about it," Martin said. "What we're going to see in season three is the first half of the third book 'A Storm of Swords,' not precisely [the first half], they've already used a few things from the third book in the second season, so they're moving a few story lines around and changing a few things, but more or less [it will be the first half of the book].
What about the likelihood we'll meet Strong Belwas this season?
"No comment on that one," Martin said with a smile.

After dissing rap sensation Nicki Minaj, rap icons Lil Kim, T.I. and fellow newcomer Iggy Azalea, her managers, producers, sound engineers, the hip-hop community, several Twitter users, and lots of others without a clear reason most of the time in less than a year, self-proclaimed "Young Rapunzel" (who ironically suffers from alopecia areata as seen on the pic above) rap newbie Azealia Banks has now managed to successfully diss her fanbase, the hipsters. Check out the realness of her tweets below:
Are you a hipster and do you feel offended by Azealia's prejudiced tweets?
Do you just looove Azealia's hood realness because she tells it like it IS or does she need to stop with the dissing and start seating?
Is Azealia your fave new artist of the moment after Nicki went with the pop route? Will you stop liking her if she turns mainstream?
Is her "Young Rapunzel" nickname another hint of obsession at fellow rapper Iggy Azalea known for her healthy natural long blonde hair and already trademark IggyTail?
Do you feel "cool" and hipster-ish by having Azealia Banks on your "cool" and hipster playlist?
Do you even know who the hell is Azealia Banks?
A fan tweeted earlier today about hearing gaga blasting a re-worked version of her demo "Nothing On (But the Radio)," written by Billy Steinberg (Give Your Heart A Break, Like A Virgin, True Colors, So Emotional).

Roseanne Barr is following in the footsteps of the likes of Charlie Sheen and Pamela Anderson - she is the latest celebrity to receive her own Comedy Central Roast.
The special is set to air on the cable channel on August 12. The list of celebrities set to insult the outspoken comedienne and TV star to her face on the program has not been revealed.
"All I can say is good luck finding anything about me to make fun of... I mean, I've never made a mistake or offended anyone in my life!" Barr, 59, said in a statement provided by Comedy Central.
In reality, Barr has been both made fun of and praised many times on and off screen - for her comedy, her fluctuating weight over the years and her no holds-barred attitude.
She rose to fame in the 1980s and performed standup comedy at Los Angeles' World Famous Comedy Store, which also helped launch the careers of the likes of David Letterman and Bob Saget. She went on to become one the most famous female comics, along with Sandra Bernhard, who would later reunite with her on the comedy series that made her famous - "Roseanne."
On the show, which ran between 1988 and 1997, Barr played a potty-mouthed, working-class mother of three. John Goodman played her on-screen husband. Barr met her real-life husband on the show - Tom Arnold. They were married between 1990 and 1994 and had no children. Barr has three daughters and two sons from other relationships.
After "Roseanne" ended, Barr voiced a character in the 2004 animated film "Home on the Range" and guest-starred on the show 'My Name is Earl' in 2006. She also provided the voice of baby Julie in the 1990 comedy film "Look Who's Talking Too," which starred John Travolta and Kirstie Alley.
Barr returned to television in July 2011 with the Lifetime Television reality series "Roseanne's Nuts," which saw her running a macadamia nut farm in Hawaii with her boyfriend Johnny Argent and son Jake. The show was canceled days after its season 1 finale on Sept. 16, 2011. She also details her life experiences in her book 'Roseannearchy: Dispatches from the Nut Farm,' which was released in January 2011.
Roseanne is set to reunite with Goodman for an NBC pilot called "Downwardly Mobile." Its release date has not been revealed.
Roseanne announced on Feb. 2, 2012 that she plans to run for president.
Sheen was the subject of a Comedy Central Roast in 2011, months after he dominated entertainment news with rants and bizarre interviews following his firing from the CBS sitcom "Two and a Half Men." Anderson, the busty star of lifeguard series "Baywatch," starred in one in 2005. Comedy Central honored her co-star David Hasselhoff with a roast in 2010.
"Although Roseanne appears to be a demure, soft spoken woman eternally committed to the status quo, we believe under the surface is an explosive, trail-blazing cultural revolution. We are honored to Roast her," said Kent Alterman, Head of Original Programming and Production at Comedy Central, said in a statement.
"Celebrating Roseanne's unprecedented achievements in comedy and television will surely inspire us to make this Roast more reminiscent of the classic roasts, where the intimacy of friends jousting with each other came through," he added.
Also, quick interview where she mentions Suri...

Jane Lynch is hosting, so maybe this roast will actually be interesting, they've been sucking so bad lately.
This is the second single and the album comes out Sept 20!
Remember the very lucky lady who played Justin Bieber's love interest in "Baby"? Well, she's 18-year-old Jasmine Villegas, and she's also a solo singer with a powerful message.
Jasmine's latest single is called "Didn't Mean It," and it speaks to teen girls about the serious issue of domestic violence. In the powerful intro to her video, Jasmine reveals that she, too, was the victim of domestic abuse, and this video is her way of speaking out and not living in silent shame.
In the emotional clip, we see firsthand what Jasmine might have gone through. Her boyfriend knocks on the door, and before she can even speak, he slaps her and brutally drags a screaming Jasmine across the room. That evening, while her abusive boyfriend (soon-to-be-ex-, we hope?) sleeps, Jasmine sneaks out of the house with her suitcase and makes the courageous decision to protect herself and leave a life of abuse.In her own words, Jasmine explains: "This topic is very important to me because it's something I experienced firsthand for over a year in a bad relationship. Fortunately for me, I was able to get out relatively early, and now I want to let other women know that you don't have to feel ashamed or embarrassed about getting help...I believe every woman is beautiful and sometimes we get caught up in situations or relationships that make us lose sight of how beautiful and precious we really are." Beautiful video, and beautiful words. We've got nothing but respect for Jasmine for using her celebrity -- and her talent -- to bring awareness to a deeply important subject.

It’s a boy for Alisan Porter !
The star of ’90s hit Curly Sue and husband Brian Autenrieth welcomed a son, Mason Blaise Autenrieth, on Tuesday, July 17 in the Los Angeles area, the couple confirm exclusively to PEOPLE.
Mason arrived at 5:20 p.m., weighed in at 7 lbs. and is 20 inches long. “We are all very in love,” Porter Tweets, sharing a photo of her husband’s daughter Cassie holding her new baby brother.
The singer-songwriter and actress, 31, got ready for her little bundle of joy with a baby shower last month in Agoura Hills, Calif.
“It was a perfect day,” Porter told PEOPLE at the time. “I couldn’t have imagined anything more beautiful. There was so much love.”
She married Autenreith, 34, in March in an intimate ceremony at a historic ranch nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains.
A FORMER nanny of the Kardashian clan says Kim Kardashian always wanted to be a "princess" and was just like Marcia of The Brady Bunch.
Pam Behan, who says she "raised" the famous family for five years during the early ‘90s, says the reality star was always the centre of attention and was similar to the egotistical, popular TV character.
"Just like when Jan always said 'Marcia Marcia Marcia', it was always 'Kim Kim Kim' in the house," Behan, the author of Malibu Nanny: The True Adventures of the Former Kardashian Nanny, told news.com.au.
"There's a quality about Kim, a princess quality. I don't mean this in a bad way but she has always thought of herself as a princess and wanted to be a princess and carries herself like a princess - I think that’s why she stood out."
Behan, who lived with the Kardashians until the four siblings were aged between 11 and 17, says her sisters didn't have the same aspirations as children.
"Kourtney and Khloe were more grounded, less interested in being in the spotlight and more normal."
But the former nanny says Kris Jenner had other plans for her daughters and was preparing them for fame their whole lives.
"I can't help but feel that deep down, she wanted it for herself maybe and it didn’t happen for her so she wanted to see it through her kids at least," she said.
"I believe she was grooming her children for their current celebrity status their entire lives... She always wanted what's happening right now - the show, the magazines, the fame, the unending talk, so I think she's living her dream right now."
While Kris and the Kardashian family have not officially endorsed the book, Behan says the “momager” has seen it and given her blessing.

Thomas Jane returns as Frank Castle/The Punisher, after playing the role in the 2004 movie, with this 10-minute film he made for Comic-Con.
Here's what he had to say about it:

As if producing an original movie titled Whiskey Business that starred Pauly Shore as a Jersey Shore-esque child of a mob boss who single-handedly saved a troubled backwoods Southern town by creating a designer moonshine called “Fruitshine” wasn’t enough to win my heart forever, CMT just went ahead a greenlighted some of most ridiculous sounding shows I have ever come across. Hand to God, these are the network’s actual descriptions:
REDNECK INTERVENTION – Each week a former redneck is confronted by friends and family members that believe he or she should return to their country roots, in this one-hour, eight-episode reality series.
CHAINSAW GANG – As featured in a new 10-episode reality series, Stacy Poitras leads a rag-tag bunch of the country’s premiere chainsaw artists who battle blades breaking, chainsaws bursting into flames and agitating each other as they manage to deliver incredible works of art—and a really good time.
FULL METAL RACKET – FULL METAL RACKET follows three generations of the Sumner family who run Knob Creek Gun Range, their family owned business in Knob Creek, Kentucky. At Knob Creek Gun Range, it’s up to the Sumner family to keep things running smoothly as customers use, try out and even purchase and sell weapons across a broad spectrum of firearms — from a cannon to a machine gun. They can even blow up whatever they bring to the range.
Holy Hell, they’re perfect. Every single one of them. It’s been over a year since I did one of my incredibly stupid posts full of TV pitches, and this is why. How can I possibly top these? I mean, the least ludicrous sounding show on that list is Chainsaw Gang, and that one prominently features CHAINSAWS BURSTING INTO FLAMES. I can’t compete with that. Best to just sit back and leave it to the professionals.
Halle Berry was rushed to hospital last night (Tuesday 17 July) while filming her latest movie The Hive in Los Angeles.
According to TMZ, the actress took a 'nasty fall' and hit her head on the concrete.
The 45-year-old was taken immediately to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in LA around 10pm last night.
An ambulance was spotted at the scene and onlookers have said she was taken to hospital in it.
Prior to the fall, the star was photographed on set waving at fans and paps. The set of the thriller movie, which also stars Abigail Breslin, was reportedly shut down when Halle was taken for medical attention.
Speaking to MSN Movies, a rep for Halle has confirmed the accident and has said the actress is fine.
"Halle Berry suffered a minor head injury while shooting a fight sequence on the set of her film, The Hive. She was taken to the hospital as a precaution, but she checked out healthy and was released. She'll continue production as planned."
Ouch! poor Halle, head injuries are always scary :(
What is UP with comedians this week? Did they get a "hey, dudes, let's all be douchey about women!" memo? Simon Pegg tweeted these gems this morning from San Diego Comic-Con.
This kind of attitude is really common and really destructive. It reduces cosplayers down to objects, and suggests that they are NOT fellow geeks, but actually decoration. They are only there to serve as fantasy fodder for male geeks. You know, the actual PEOPLE in this equation. (A good sign you're objectifying women: you're comparing them to food.) It's gross. So I told him so.
And, of course, his response was dismissive.
Here's the thing: "sexuality" is not about objectifying women. Actual sexuality is *being sexual.* Drooling over cosplay women, calling them "girls," and suggesting that their fandom and cosplaying are just there to get you off? That's not sexuality. That's just you being gross.
Then he tried to pull the "it's not sexism if I didn't do it on purpose!" card.
I thought I might actually be getting somewhere, so I tried to appeal to the side of him that may NOT want women to feel excluded from geek communities. I tried to point out that there is actual harm in this kind of nonsense. And his response was bullshit. (Are you seeing a pattern? Because I was.) He may have called my feminism outdated '90s shit, but his thinking is really like that. Sexism COUNTS, even when you don't offend the woman in question, or if you didn't do it on purpose.
