Justin Bieber Opens Up to Jimmy Fallon About His Emotional VMA Performance

JustinBieber_JimmyFallon_Feat(PCM) Justin Bieber sat down with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show on Wednesday and addressed his emotional performance at the 2015 MTV VMAs.

The MTV VMAs, an annual awards show that crowns the best music videos of the past year, has always been a hot spot for celebrity drama, but this year’s ceremony outdid itself.

Aside from the poorly written amateur sketches and the bevy of marijuana jokes courtesy of this year’s host, Miley Cyrus, audiences got to sit back and watch as “Anaconda” rapper Nicki Minaj threw the most amount of shade seen on a live televised program in the past century at Miley, Kanye West go on a 12-minute tirade and announce his 2020 presidential run after winning the VMA Vanguard award, and, on a more touching note, watched as Justin Bieber, once one of the most hated celebrities in America, broke down in tears at the end of his performance of his latest single, “What Do You Mean?”

Many in the live audience and those at home watching on TV were left questioning whether the Bieb’s tears were genuine and, if so, they were left to wonder why the young pop star appeared to be sobbing at the end of his set.

Aware of the general public’s confusion, Justin Bieber appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to address those questions and explain his emotional breakdown.

Bieber explained to Fallon that his tears were due to his being overwhelmed after receiving cheers from the crowd at the end of his performance, especially since his last awards show performance was met with boos.

Bieber goes on to acknowledge his unruly behavior as a teenager, the same behavior (egging houses, speeding, general misbehavior) that had people signing a petition to deport the singer back to Canada.

Whether this is all one big PR move to revamp Justin Bieber’s image or genuine penance, it seems to be working: Justin’s latest single, “What Do You Mean?” holds the #1 spot on the Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks chart.

(PCM) We are shocked and deeply saddened to report that iconic film director, writer, producer and actor Wes Craven has passed away at the age of 76. Multiple sources are claiming that Craven was battling brain cancer at the time of his passing and died at his home in Los Angeles.

Craven is beloved by fans of horror as he is responsible for creating one of the most recognizable characters in the genre with Freddy Kruger and the “Nightmare on Elm Street” film franchise. His other well-known films include “Last House on The Left”, “The People Under The Stairs”, “Swamp Thing”, “The Hills Have Eyes” and of course the beloved first four “Scream” films.  He also directed the film “Music Of The Heart”, stepping completely outside of the horror genre which led to an Oscar nomination for actress Meryl Steep for her role in the film.

Craven’s most recent film was 2010’s “My Soul To Take” and he had recently signed a deal with Universal Cable Productions with multiple projects still currently in development. Those include “People Under The Stairs” with Syfy Networks, “Disciples” with UCP, “We Are All Completely Fine” with Syfy/UCP and “Sleepers” with Federation Entertainment. He was also serving as executive producer on the new “Scream” TV series for MTV and had just recently completed writing a segment, which he was slated to direct for the upcoming WGN America series “Ten Commandments”.

Our sincere condolences go out to Wes Craven’s family and friends during this incredibly difficult time. The film world has lost yet another true icon … may he rest in peace!

Caitlyn Jenner Halloween Costume Sparks Up Controversy

Caitlyn-costume

(PCM) Each year it seems that there is one Halloween costume in particular that will stir up some kind of controversy, so it is no different this year with a costume that was recently discovered on the Spirit Halloween website that mocks Caitlyn Jenner’s famous Vanity Fair photo shoot.

The costume is meant to be humorous, poking fun at Jenner’s celebrity, however many feel that the costume has been created in poor taste. The costume sells for $74.99 and features a wig, bodice, and sash printed with the words “Call Me Caitlyn”. The outfit is almost identical to the one that Jenner wore for her famous Vanity Fair magazine cover shoot with famed photographer Annie Lebovitz.

Members of the transgender community are outraged and are calling the promotion of the costume transphobia, however others feel that the costume is nothing more than a joke and should be treated as such, as many other celebrities have had Halloween costumes designed in their likeness. In response to the controversy Spirit Halloween has removed the costume from their website, however they did release a statement which says “At Spirit Halloween, we create a wide range of costumes that are often based upon celebrities, public figures, heroes and superheroes. We feel that Caitlyn Jenner is all of the above and that she should be celebrated. The Caitlyn Jenner costume reflects just that.”

However, a spokesperson for the National Center for Transgender Equality feels differently saying “There’s no tasteful way to ‘celebrate’ Caitlyn Jenner or respect transgender people this way on the one night of the year when people use their most twisted imaginations to pretend to be villains and monsters.”  There has since been a Change.org petition started which request that the retailer discontinue the costume.

It is still currently available at several additional online retailers at this time!
