    source - jay's holy grail is the second highest entry of the year <3

    Well it seems Jay-Z may have to add another problem to his other 99 after his controversial app in association with Samsung, which saw the rapper give away a million copies of his number one album 'Magna Carta Holy Grail,' has come under fire from privacy pressure groups after fans complained of concerns over the data it gathers.

    Just last week, Lady Gaga announced a similar proposal which would see her Little Monsters being given the opportunity to interact with their 'Mother Monster' via their mobile in conjunction with the release of her upcoming fourth studio album 'ARTPOP' this November.

    However, last week the 1.2 million Jay-Z fans that installed the app were required to provide various pieces of personal information to be able to download the music and additional features including artwork and lyric sheets.

    Fans firstly had to sign in to the app via either their Facebook or Twitter pages and enter their age before entering the applications features and users were reportedly forced to allow the app to post messages on social media sites under the identity of the user.

    The app was reportedly to be able to access information regarding users location, dialled telephone numbers, networks and other phone apps prompting the pressure group Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) to request an investigation be carried forward by the Federal Trade Commission or FTC.

    In a statement from EPIC the group have argued: “Samsung failed to disclose material information about the privacy practices of the App, collected data unnecessary to the functioning of the Magna Carta App, deprived users of meaningful choice regarding the collection of their data, interfered with device functionality, and failed to implement reasonable data minimisation procedures.”

    While Samsung have since responded insisting all information required for the app was “purely for customer verification purposes, app functionality purposes, and for marketing communications, but only if the customer requests to receive those marketing communications".

    The company strictly denied any foul play was involved with the 'Magna Carta' app.

    So to recap Epic are claiming that in order to access Jay-Z's 'Magna Carta' app users were asked to:

    1. Provide their current location

    2. Allow Samsung to access all telephones dialled

    3. Other applications on phone

    4. Information about networks

    5. Access to users Facebook and Twitter including approval to post messages on other social media via the users account


    But now it seems other major artists are following suit using mobile technology to launch their new albums.

    Lady Gaga's promised to “bring the music industry into a new age” with her upcoming ARTPOP app released through the star's HAUS OF GAGA and will presumably follow similar requirements to be made accessible for fans when it's launched on November 11.

    The director is seeking the "Jack Reacher" actress to play the female lead opposite Ben Affleck in the hit novel adaptation, which will be co-financed 50-50 by 20th Century Fox and New Regency.

    Ben Affleck has taken the mystery out of who will star in David Fincher's twisty whodunit Gone Girl. But apropos of the subject matter, Gone Girl still has a few riddles to unfurl before its planned September shoot.

    But still remaining to be cast is the titular missing wife, which would be a juicy and high-profile role for a thirty-something actress. A project insider dismisses the possibility of Charlize Theron taking on the project, as had been reported. "Charlize is not doing this movie," emphasizes the source. A studio insider also rules out Natalie Portman -- who had been in the mix to star in Fincher's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo before he cast Rooney Mara -- and Emily Blunt as potential candidates due to their availability. Reese Witherspoon, who optioned the book last summer via her Type A production company, is on board as a producer only and will not star.

    "There's no shortage of women interested, [and it] will just come down to who Fincher wants," the studio source notes. Jack Reacher co-star Rosamund Pike, whose name has never been mentioned in conjunction with Gone Girl, is said to be the latest contender.
    Also a question mark is the shape of the screenplay, which is considered to be a particularly tricky adaptation given that much of the first half of the book is told through diary entries. Flynn is adapting, though the author has not penned a screenplay before. But the project insider says at this point there is no need for an expensive 11th-hour rewrite. "Gillian is taking it all the way with David," the insider insists. "They've found a great rhythm together."

    SOURCE
    A friend of mine suggested this book and I still haven't read it :P But reading the comments, it seems Emily and Natalie are not people's favourite and Charlize just gives a too bitchy vibe to pull off the role. Personally, I like Rosamund Pike as well too :)

    Cory Monteith's body was cremated Tuesday in Vancouver following a private viewing with his family and girlfriend Lea Michele, TMZ has learned -- but Cory's father wasn't invited ... and he's heartbroken.

    Cory's dad Joe Monteith -- who is divorced from Cory's mom Ann -- tells TMZ ... he was informed of the cremation after the fact, adding he's "totally devastated" he didn't get a chance to see Cory's body.

    We're told Cory's body was released yesterday to his mom, and she decided to hold a viewing at the hospital with Lea and Cory's brother Shaun. Following the viewing, we're told Cory's mom decided to have him cremated.

    Cory's dad tells us, "I always loved both my sons and am going to miss Cory very very much. I'm saddened at the fact that I couldn't have been there to see my son before he was cremated."

    As for Cory's alleged heroin use ... his dad says he's "shocked."

    Agnieszka Radwanska has been dropped by a Catholic youth movement shortly after the Polish tennis star appeared nude in ESPN's 2013 "Body Issue."

    The Wimbledon women's semi-finalist was photographed sitting in a plastic deckchair beside a pool containing tennis balls in the latest edition of the magazine, which came out last month. Although Radwanska was seated with her bare chest covered by her arms, the tennis star was pictured without a stitch of clothing, sparking controversy within the Church.

    The Catholic youth group Krucjata Mlodych, which means Youth Crusade, deemed ESPN's photo shoot as "immoral behavior," and dropped Radwanska from its campaign.

    Ahead of posing for ESPN, Radwanska had starred in a commercial for the group where she spelled "Jesus" with tennis balls and urged viewers to not be ashamed of their faith.

    "It's a shame that someone who has declared their love for Jesus is now promoting the mentality of men looking at women as a thing rather than a child of God worthy of respect and love," said Senior Catholic priest Father Marek Dziewiecki while speaking to members of the Polish media, according to Yahoo Sports.

    "If she meets a man who she can truly love and establish a happy family and raise Catholic children, then she would probably have to hide these pictures from relatives," the priest added.

    Meanwhile, most residents in Poland adhere to the Christian faith, with over 85 percent belonging to the Catholic Church.

    Ahead of the youth group's reaction, Radwanska expressed confidence in appearing among other star athletes in ESPN's "Body Issue."

    "I feel fortunate that I can stay pretty lean without having to do too much gym work," said the number four world-ranked tennis player, according to ESPN Magazine.

    The special edition of the magazine is promoted by the publication as intended to celebrate "the vast potential of the human form" as well as "the athletes who've pushed their physiques to profound frontiers," according to ESPN's official website.

    Other athletes featured in the 2013 "Body Issue" included NFL star Vernon Davis, Olympic volleyball player Kerri Walsh Jennings, and race car driver Courtney Force, among others.

    Hot, normal girls do not have to resort to online relationships with men they’ve never met.

    That’s what many people think. Breaking that big misconception was why, more than its happy ending, this week’s Catfish was a powerful experience. Internet love is not some ghetto for misshapen and/or damaged goods, but it feels like almost every week, there’s a catch with the catfishee in the form of some major baggage driving them to the delusion. This week, when Nev and Max got on the webcam with Lauren, it was clear even they were taken aback by her giant smile and outgoing personality. They commented, veiled or otherwise, on her utter sparkle no fewer than five times. There was an underlying tone there that Lauren was above the treatment she was receiving from her online beau of eight years, Derek.

    And yeah, it kinda seemed like it had something to do with the fact that she appeared to have not a single thing wrong with her, unless you’re going to hold it against her that she has a young son (and some men certainly would). So shame on Nev and Max — but damn if Catfish’s first-ever happy ending didn’t steal the show. It probably didn’t help that MTV hammed it up with a live after-show, in which we learned precisely nothing except that the happy couples supposedly did not bang the first time they met IRL (props on the self-control, eight years during your teen years and early twenties is brutal).

    There was no way this guy was about to be who he claimed to be, but sure enough, he stepped onto his front porch with the same dumb facial hair and the sort of dude-bro necklaces that are almost mandatory at DMB concerts, two staples from nearly all his online pics. At that exact moment, Twitter erupted with some all-caps variation on “wait what the actual fuck.” It was a nice reminder that not everyone on the Internet is a creep looking to deceive, and that sometimes, it all works out. The method of communication should never automatically invalidate the emotions.

    Still, there were reasons for even online love’s most ardent apologists to be skeptical. Lauren, 21, and Derek, 23, had been in communication via social networking sites (Myspace then Facebook), chat, and phone for eight years. This time period included the birth of Lauren’s son, Mason, and her engagement to another man, which she broke off in part because of her feelings for Derek. During the engagement, Derek had unfriended Lauren, but the two started talking again once she left her fiancé. They never webcammed, though; he wouldn’t buy one, even after Lauren offered to pay for it.

    Still, she was sure Derek was for real and that someday they would be married. Until Nev and Max — particularly Max’s newfound bad cop act — left the smallest little crack in her just minutes before they pulled up to Derek’s Maryland home. At which point, Nev offers up a thesis statement on the entire show, as though it had popped into his head for the first time: “This is not a show for you, this is your life.” Even Lauren’s weeping, Texan, ex-Navy father could not convince her that Derek was as fishy as they come. It could be because she wrote her parents off as merely not “getting it, whereas Nev and Max do this for a living" (let that sink in for a second). Minutes earlier, after all, her stepmom did note, “It blows my mind that you think someone can be there for you over the phone.” Welcome to Catfish, ma, take a look around; you’ll be tsking in no time.

    Parental skepticism is one thing, but Max and Nev being downright hell-bent on Derek’s illegitimacy is another. Typically the more reserved and smiley one, Max was on a mission this week from out of the gate, almost as if a producer had given him notes to kick it up. “What’s he hiding?” he pleaded again and again, whereas Nev dialed it up once he found R. LeVourne. Oh, R. LeVourne! This poor guy. When Nev and Max Googled Derek’s cell number, it was listed as belonging to a middle-aged black man, who’s married with kids. They panicked. However, by the end of the after-show, R. LeVourne had become the butt of the joke, and a potentially racist one at that. No, Lauren, you cannot be sure of someone’s race based exclusively on his voice. Anyway, no one really found out LeVourne’s deal, but here’s hoping MTV at least told him that his family’s photos would be broadcast on national TV. (Side note: Can you imagine how awkward it would be to explain to this older gentleman why he was about be vilified by some kids on the Internet? Have fun with that job, production assistant whose name Nev never remembers.)

    As far as we know, Derek wasn’t hiding anything from Lauren. It was clear, however, that he was scared shitless to meet her, which he later admitted. Beforehand, on the phone with Nev, his excuses were so weak (“shocked by the whole thing,” “I like to have things planned out to a T”), you could tell this guy’s a bit of a baby about commitment. Moreover, Derek was nervous about Lauren’s baby, whom he’d meet on the second day of filming to fairly normal results (he’s what, 4?). Lauren and Derek seemed to do well enough when they went on their first date, looking like a Christian Mingle ad come to life in no time. As these things generally are, connecting the physical to the emotional was a little awkward at first, but it looks as though that trike ride into the sunset — and likely marriage — is in the couple’s future. I wonder if they’ll invite LeVourne.

    Iggy Azalea managed to break her own set goal of breaking the top 10 in the iTunes midweeks chart with new single ‘Bounce‘ reaching an amazing number 8 – in just one single day.

    While also ruling the top spot of the iTunes hip-hop chart, the Aussie rap star is eager to release debut album, The New Classic, to her adoring fans (the ‘Azaleans’).

    With a jam-packed schedule of shows and festival appearances in the UK alone, Gigwise caught up with the sky-rocketing ‘Work‘ star – where we discuss homophobia in hip-hop, her Glastonbury experience, breaking the mould of what it means to be a role model and how she’ll never release a pop song.

    How did it feel to perform at Glastonbury in an environment predominantly made up of guitar bands?

    It was cool because I was on the hip-hop stage – well I don’t think they ever officially said it was a hip hop stage, but I was there for four acts before and two acts after and it was all rap music. So it didn’t really feel like I was at a rock festival because I was sectioned off to that tent area, and it was it was all hip-hop fans so it felt like I was at a rap show. It was cool.

    Do you think a female rapper will ever headline Glastonbury?

    Erm, no because I don’t think Glastonbury supports rap music, actually.

    What about when Jay-Z headlined Glasto in 2008?

    I think that was with great drudgery that they let that happen to be honest with you.

    To be a white female rapper, with an amazing figure and also to be the first international rap superstar to emerge from Australia must take an awful lot of confidence. Do you ever consider the pressure of that?

    I feel comfortable about it. I think there’s pressure for me to succeed because I don’t want to let anyone down. I have a lot of people I know who look up to me and look up to my story especially and with it being a success story. I guess sometimes there not necessarily pressure but that thing at the back of your head ‘don’t fail’, because I don’t want to have a fail story for those people who are inspired by me, I don’t want to let them down. There’s that, but I don’t think there’s ever a pressure within my image and those sorts of things.

    How do you deal with that inner ‘don’t fail’ voice? How do you keep yourself ahead?

    I don’t know, I know now when I’m doing it, if I’m doing it, I can tell. I can catch it now before my mind would wonder down that track a bit further. Now I can tell I can be like, nah you’re doing it. You train yourself I think. I think everybody has to do that, you have to train yourself to not get in a negative mind frame. People, we love to be worriers and procrastinate, and get anxious about things, everyone does it. So I think you just have to train your mind when you see you’re going down that path. And I think women we do it all that time with boys we date. I think lots of times we’ll over analyse and start to freak ourselves out when we really like someone. I think it’s the same with success because when you really want something that’s when you can be anxious and over-think things. So I just think about it as I think about with men, because with men as you get older you know when you’re starting to be a psycho, like ‘hold on, stop stalking his Instagram snap out of it!’ So now I just apply the same dating rules to career to now.

    Have you experienced much prejudice in the hip hop world?

    No I don’t think so, not directly. I know there are people who have hesitated to support me because of what I look like or where I’m from. I think it just gets better with time as you show and prove yourself, and more and more people raise there hands to show that they support me – or have come out of the woodwork and feel comfortable to do that, or are more accepting of me and something new. It just takes time.

    Do you think you play a part of being a role model for young women around the world?

    I think ‘role model’ is a weird idea, just because I think people associate ‘role model’ with something that’s like morally correct in societies version of right or wrong. I definitely think that I’m somebody that people look up to and I always acknowledge that, and I always try to make sure people are pushed in the right direction or feel inspired to do their thing. But in terms of ‘don’t show your tits or don’t show your arse because you’re a role model’, I sort of feel like well what of the reason I’m a role model is to inspire people to stick to whatever their guns are. So if you want to wear a pair of short shorts, I think being a role model shouldn’t exclude someone from feeling OK to do that, you know what I mean?

    We spoke to Eve earlier this year who said that more men in hip hop need to come out like Frank Ocean did. What’s your view on sexuality in hip hop?

    Yeah I agree. Just because I think that yeah we should. The gay community is a big part of hip hop and rap music not just necessary artists but they’re in there and they’re styling a lot of the rappers, doing creative stuff, creating the videos. Even if it’s not as an artist per say, even though I’m sure I know artists who are in the closet, I think that regardless of that they’re apart of the hip hop industry in a very big way. I think there should be less prejudice against homosexuality in rap music for sure.

    What’s your opinion on the new albums from Jay Z and Kanye?

    I haven’t head Jay-Z’s yet, but everybody says it’s really good but I haven’t heard it yet because I’ve just been releasing my single so I’ve been doing this. Kanye’s I’ve heard parts of, it’s very interesting.

    For your next single ‘Change Your Life, you sing – why was this important to you?

    I don’t think it’s so important for me to sing, but everybody my whole life has always said, ‘you can sing, you can sing, why don’t you sing?’ And I’ve always been so against singing because I didn’t want people to push me in the direction of doing that or making pop music, before I had a solidified fan base. I’m really passionate about rap music and I wanted to make sure people knew that’s what I care about, thats what I am. I’ll never make a pop song where I just sing, that will never happen. So before I ever went into doing melodic things or singing or anything like that, I wanted to make sure I’ve established myself and I think it’s good to have surprises. I wanted to leave something for the album, where I’m giving you something new that you didn’t know about me, that I could do or something about my story you didn’t know. Just new things that make the album great and different from mix tapes. I’m two singles in now, I haven’t sung yet though I think it’s just nice to add another thing I can showcase that I can do. Having a nice melody in a song doesn’t hurt either, that’s always good and also to just add something new and say ‘hey, this is something new for the album that you haven’t heard before of me and here it is’. It’s interesting.

    I know the album is ready, how excited are you to put it out in September and what can fans expect?

    I can’t reveal anything yet I’ve got stuff and collaborations I’m working on seeing if they’ll end up on my album or other people’s albums, things like that but I’m excited… I’m still anxious a little bit. I don’t know what to expect, other people don’t know what to expect and I don’t know what to expect. I know what expect from my album, but you just never know. I think it’s good, but will you think its good? Will this be better than what you expected? Do you expect more than what I think you do? Will it be bad? I don’t know, I don’t think it will be bad. I feel very good about it, everyone that’s heard it seems to be very impressed and surprised by it.

  • Hi, everyone! There has been some slight confusion lately about a few rules we have here, so I thought I'd take a moment to clarify.


    LISTS. List posts are fun, but please limit how many items you submit from the source. It was always hard to put a specific number on how many items should be posted, considering lists can be so different and range from "Top 5" to "Top 100." To make it simple for everyone to understand, we're limiting lists to 5 items only.This does not mean post the rest of the list without pictures or text or teh rest of the list in the comments. Please leave the rest of the lists for the sources that create them, as we like to drive traffic to other sites for their work.

    LJ-CUTS. We've been pretty relaxed about this, but please remember to use LJ cuts on posts. A good rule of thumb has always been one image/video and one paragraph of intro text. Everything else should be under an LJ-cut. If you need help using lj-cuts, check out the FAQ here. Also, any post with really large photos (bigger than ~600px by 600px) outside of a cut are not allowed and will be rejected.

    MEMBERSHIP. As many of you picked up, we opened the floodgates to let in some fresh meat. Some bots made it in, as well, and we're doing our best to get rid of them. Membership has been closed again as of a few weeks ago.

    BEHAVE. Remember, personal attacks are not allowed. Talking shit about celebrities or public figures is why we exist. People are allowed to have a different opinion than the ONTD hive mind and should not be attacked for voicing it. People with different opinions are not immediately banned, unless they break the rules. Flippantly telling someone to kill themselves or to go fuck themselves over an ONTD comment is unacceptable.

    SOURCES. Tracked Tumblr tags are not a valid source. Please make sure to use direct source links and dig deep to find original sources.

    CONTROVERSIAL POSTS. There have been a lot of political posts lately because there have been some hot topics. We have no issues with these sorts of posts, considering people want to talk about them, but we still request that there's a 'celebrity' angle. A good example is how hawaii_bombay regularly makes posts about celebrities reacting to something on Twitter.


    Also, we'll be having a tag suggestion post in the near future.  I hope this clears some stuff up, I'll try to answer questions in the comments.

    Actors love to talk out of turn and all too often their wishful thinking is pretty much the equivalent of fanboy daydreaming. Take comments from “Star Trek” actor Zachary Quinto that seem to have been taken at face value across the entire Internet. Quinto “supposes” that “Star Trek 3” will shoot next year. “'Star Trek 3' should be filming, I suppose, next year,” is the full quote. “It’s going to be made a lot quicker than the last one. That’s the plan, although nothing is confirmed yet.” (If that’s not the most tentative, and half-hearted declaration of news this month, we’re not sure what is). Elsewhere in the article from Buzzhub, Quinto “mentioned that J.J. Abrams was planning to direct 'Star Trek 3.' "

    Let’s count the ways why this won’t happen: 1) J.J. Abrams will be spending 2014 prepping, shooting and editing “Star Wars: Episode VII.” There’s absolutely no way on earth that Abrams will shoot two massive-scaled tentpoles in the same year. That’s downright laughable. If you were to use odds, it would be something like 10-million-to-one. Abrams wants to nail the new “Star Wars,” and all his attention and focus will be on that franchise only— he won't be multi-tasking as a director on two mega-sequels.

    2 & 3) Disney and Kathleen Kennedy will simply not let Abrams shoot his competing franchise in the same year he’s supposed to shoot “Star Wars.” Likewise, Paramount is not dumb enough to put “Star Trek 3” head to head with “Star Wars” and nor would they want him doing double promotional duties (the same promotional duties which would overlap with any number of elements of the other film). The gap between the original "Star Trek" and “Star Trek Into Darkness” was four years. Sure, Abrams shot “Super 8” within that time frame, but that’s still one film every two years. And ‘Into Darkness’ was a fairly long process for Abrams. The movie shot in January 2012 and wasn’t released until more than a year later in the spring of 2013 (at the insistence of Abrams, who forced the studio to move back the release date so he didn't have to rush). The original “Star Trek” was also a year and four months from shoot date to release.

    So count J.J. Abrams out directing "Star Trek 3" in 2014— no amount of hoping and dreaming will make this happen. As for “Star Trek 3” shooting in 2014 without Abrams (or with him taking a producing credit)? Sure, Paramount doesn’t want another four year gap between “Star Trek” films and that could be possible, but as of right now there’s a white page: There’s no screenplay written. It would need to be written, developed, finished and then you’d have to find a director to shoot it (because J.J. Abrams is NOT directing this movie, kids). It’s not inconceivable especially because “2014” could mean anytime in 2014 (like in December at the end of the year). If we were betting people, we wouldn’t put a cent down that it’ll happen.

    The general rule is that sequels always make more money than their predecessor, this is the reason they are made. This is the reason why franchises with little to no (or tiny) profits (“Red,” “G.I. Joe”) get followups, because the wisdom is that the property is now known, and even if they first film didn't clean up, the second one will likely outgross it. But “Star Trek Into Darkness” is the rare major blockbuster sequel that didn’t outperform its predecessor. 2009’s "Star Trek" grossed $257 million domestically, while 'Into Darkness' only grossed $224 million despite the brand having already successfully rebooted itself. The story was reversed worldwide with 'Into Darkness' outgrossing the original by about $60 million, which is heartening for the studio, but one has got to think the writers and producers have to wonder what went wrong and why “Star Trek” went soft within North America; the territory where the franchise should be the largest. One would think they would actually want to work on the script a little bit too.

    Abrams himself has even pooh-poohed the idea of a “Star Trek” and “Star Wars” arriving one year after each other let alone shooting in the same year. “If they want in that period of time [2015 and then 2016] and if 'Star Wars' goes forward as planned, it would obviously be a conflict. It depends when this movie would happen,” he told Trek Movie earlier this year.

    Magic Eight Ball result: A resounding, dream on, nerd.

    It’s been four days since Glee star Cory Monteith died suddenly at the age of 31 — and the actor’s family, friends, and fans are still reeling. Actress Dianna Agron, who played Monteith’s onetime girlfriend on Fox’s hit musical series, has just released the following statement about her fallen comrade:

    “I have never lost a friend. In this difficult time, I am leaning on all of the wonderful memories we shared with Cory, how many ways he was able to make us smile. Glee was a gift to all of us. It gave us a family in this industry. We really cut our teeth and grew up on this show. In playing underdogs, we learned that we had dug into the hearts of our viewers and that we could stay there.

    “Cory is so deserving of that place in everyone’s hearts. He was one of the most generous and kind people that I have ever met. He had a smart, curious mind, he was an enormous talent. He was loving to not only me, but my family. My heart goes out to his family, to Lea, to everyone that is struggling with the loss of our friend. We will miss you Cory. We will always carry a piece of you with us.”

    Agron’s words come a day after this statement from reps of Lea Michele, who once fought with Agron for Monteith’s affections on Glee: “Lea is deeply grateful for all the love and support she’s received from family, friends, and fans. Since Cory’s passing, Lea has been grieving alongside his family and making appropriate arrangements with them. They are supporting each other as they endure this profound loss together. We continue to ask the media to respect the privacy of Lea and Cory’s family.”

    There are so many reasons to be excited about the upcoming film adaptation of Jason Robert Brown’s cult musical The Last Five Years: Tony nominee and Smash star Jeremy Jordan as Jamie and Tony nominee and Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick as Cathy, not to mention the fact that talented director/screenwriter Richard LaGravenese is at the helm. The movie, which centers on a young couple’s doomed relationship, began filming in June and on July 16, the cast and crew gathered in Harlem to shoot the final scene, “Goodbye Until Tomorrow.”

    Broadway.com photographer Bruce Glikas had access on set for the final day of filming, and below is an gorgeous gallery of photos from that late afternoon shoot.

    Former ONE LIFE TO LIVE star Scott Evans entered a guilty plea in January on attempted cocaine possession charges following his December arrest, but he did not have to do any jail time. Evans agreed to attend 60 Narcotics Anonymous meetings withing six months in exchange for the judge throwing out the case, almost like it never happened.

    TMZ is reporting that Evans (brother of CAPTAIN AMERICA star Chris Evans) is now officially off the hook after completing his obligation in the six month time frame. In exchange, the judge dismissed the case.

    Evans was busted in December and charged with one count of attempted possession of a controlled substance after trying to buy coke from an undercover cop. His original plea was "not guilty" but he changed the plea in exchange for no jail time.

    Evans played Oliver Fish in ONE LIFE TO LIVE from 2008 to 2010.

    This is crazy! Not only do 11-year-old Mexican-American boys get attacked when they sing songs about the U.S.A., now even big stars do, too. Twitter users took to social to post about their hatred (and flaunted their ignorance, no less) when Marc Anthony sang God Bless America at Tuesday's MLB All Star game, reports NBC Latino.

    Despite the fact that Marc Anthony is a born-and-bred New Yorker (he grew up in Spanish Harlem), people questioned if they were the only one saw his performance as "un-American" and even questioned his citizenship status. Others focused on his pronunciation, saying he rolled his r's during the performance for the word "American."
