Elton John Calls For A Dolce & Gabbana Boycott Over In Vitro Fertilization Feud

Elton-John-DG

(PCM) A social media war has sprung up between singer Elton John and fashion designers Dolce & Gabbana over both the hot-button issues of gay marriage and in vitro fertilization. Both John and Dolce & Gabbana are calling for a boycott of each other’s brands and it is beginning to get ugly.

The feud began after designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana gave a recent interview and made comments criticizing the use of in vitro fertilization in the creation of babies saying “No chemical offsprings and rented uterus: life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed.”

Dolce also added “You are born to a mother and a father — or at least that’s how it should be … I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Rented uterus, semen chosen from catalog.” Gabbana closed by remarking “The family is not a fad. In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging.”

Upon learning about Dolce & Gabbana’s comment, Sir Elton John was understandably infuriated and he and his husband David Furnish have two beautiful children as a result of the use of IVF. He slammed Dolce & Gabbana on social media saying “How dare you refer to my beautiful children as ‘synthetic.’ And shame on you for wagging your judgmental little fingers at IVF — a miracle that has allowed legions of loving people, both straight and gay, to fulfill their dream of having children. Your archaic thinking is out of step with the times, just like your fashions. I shall never wear Dolce and Gabbana ever again. #BoycottDolceGabbana.”

Dolce & Gabbana’s comments are definitely surprising as both men are openly gay and were together in a relationship for nearly 20 years. However, both have spoken out in the past about being against same sex marriages and gay adoption.

Many other celebrities are standing behind John and supporting the Dolce & Gabbana boycott including Al Roker and Ryan Murphy. Dolce & Gabbana are calling for their supporters to boycott Elton John and even resorted to calling him a “fascist”. They claim that it was not their intention to judge anyone else’s choices and Dolce was speaking from his own family experience.

Zendaya Fires Back At Giuliana Rancic Over Racist Hair Comments

Zendaya1

(PCM) Teen actress and musician, Zendaya took the high road and was able to put E! “Fashion Police” host Giuliana Rancic in her place without ever naming names, after Rancic made racist commentary about Zendaya’s dredlocked hair at the Oscars.

During a post-Oscar episode of “Fashion Police” Rancic commented on Zendaya’s hair saying “‘I feel like she smells like patchouli oil … or maybe weed”. Zendaya, who looked absolutely gorgeous in her white off-should Vivienne Westwood gown and Chopard jewels, was deeply insulted by Rancic’s thoughtless statements and took to social media to school the E! personality about her ignorance and stereotyping  when it comes to individuals who sport dredlocked hair.

Zendaya wrote “There is a fine line between what is funny and disrespectful. Someone said something about my hair at the Oscars that left me in awe. Not because I was relishing in rave outfit reviews, but because I was hit with ignorant slurs and pure disrespect. To say that an 18-year-old woman with locs must smell of patchouli oil or ‘weed’ is not only a large stereotype but outrageously offensive”

You can read Zendaya’s full tweet below:

You can see that no where in the tweet does Zendaya call out Rancic personally, but she obviously knew it was directed at her and took to her own Twitter account to offer up an apology.

Iggy Azalea Claims That Papa Johns Leaked Her Digits

Iggy-Azalea2

(PCM) Instead of tweeting about her excitement or anticipation for her appearance at the 57th Grammy Awards, “Fancy” singer Iggy Azalea took to her Twitter account to slam Papa Johns pizza for leaking out her personal cell phone number.

Azalea posted the following tweet, which claims that Papa Johns used to be her favorite pizza until one of the drivers apparently gave out her personal cell phone number to one of their family members.

In fairness to Azalea, she is really just looking for some answers and Papa Johns appears to be taking the entire situation as a big joke. They even went as far as to tweet back at Azalea using her own song title as a witty response.  

Bad move Papa Johns .. totally not funny! Azalea went on to tweet that she still has yet to receive any real answers from Papa Johns and alluded that a supervisor even said to her “Don’t worry, his mom has spoken to him”.  So unprofessional. Something tells us that the delivery driver will be out of a job fairly soon.

The Battle Is On Between Disney And Deadmau5

Deadmau5

(PCM) EDM superstar Deadmau5 is gearing up for quite the legal battle between himself and entertainment company Disney. The fight is over the similarities between Deadmau5 aka Joel Zimmerman’s mouse ears logo and the famed Mickey Mouse logo owned by Disney.

Zimmerman brought the fight into the social media realm when he posted a series of tweets urging Disney to “lawyer up” after they filed a motion in opposition to Zimmerman’s attempt to trademark his own logo in the U.S.

Zimmerman is also filing a counterclaim against Disney, as he discovered that they were using one of his most popular tracks “Ghosts N’ Stuff” in one of the promo videos on their website. The video in question has since been removed after Zimmerman called them out on social media.

The Deadmau5 logo, which is a forward facing mouse head with large circular ears and two large eyes, is a registered trademark in over 30 countries and Zimmerman has been using the logo in the States for many years. Thus far, Disney is only opposing the U.S. trademark filing.

Zimmerman’s attorney claims they are ready for a fight to protect his intellectual property and that they will not be bullied by a large corporation such as Disney.

Disney had made no official statement in regards to situation.

Grumpy Neighbor Attempts To Shut Down A Kids Lemonade Stand

Lemonade-stand1

(PCM) 61 year old Doug Wilkey has become so fed up with a kid’s lemonade stand in his neighborhood that he has even gone as far as to call City Hall and the local authorities in an attempt to have it shut down.

The kid, 12 year old T.J. Guerrero runs the lemonade stand on a residential corner in his Dunedin, Florida neighborhood and says that he has received permission from the person who owns the home on the corner where the stand is located to post a sign on the lawn and run the table from 3-7pm.

Wilkey is calling the T.J.’s lemonade stand, which also sells homemade cookies and strawberry lemonade an “illegal business” and claims it creates excessive traffic in the area, as well as, noise, trash, illegal parking and other issues that reduce the value of his property.

T.J is running the stand in order to raise money pay for his cell phone bill and buy a few snacks and an iPod. Why someone would want to shut down a kid that is actually acting responsibly does not make a whole lot of sense to us, but to each their own we suppose.

Wilkey claims T.J’s friends made a lot of noise when hanging next to his stand with their skateboards, thrown rocks in his yard and also set off fireworks that scared his dog. T.J. denies this incidents and the Dunedin planning and development director from City Hall is siding with T.J. claiming that they are not in the business of regulating kids like that and do not want to put lemonade stands out of business.

T.J. no longer has his friends hang out with him at the stand due to Wilkey’s complaints and he only plans to run the lemonade stand until he turns 14 years old and can apply for a job at the local area supermarket.

Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom Fight Over Ex’s

bloom-kerr(PCM) Just in. Did Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber fight in Ibiza? Orlando Bloom is rumored to have thrown a punch at Justin Bieber reports TMZ. Grainy video shows two silhouettes with entourages converging but no punches are seen. It’s suggested they argued over ex’s.

It all takes place in Cipriani restaurant in Ibiza. Surprisingly Paris Hilton is said to have been there but yet to sound off on the altercation. Diddy was also said to be nearby as Justin is friends with his nephew.

According to eyewitnesses, Orlando began to throw a punch at Justin that he pulled midway. Words were bieber-gomezexchanged (according to TMZ Justin taunted, “What’s up b***ch!), then Justin left quickly. The crowd reacted to his exit with applause.

Could all this be closure to past love triangles? In 2012, Orlando’s wife Miranda Kerr spent time partying with Justin. If that was enough, Justin’s texts to Miranda didn’t help. All this got under her husband Orlando’s skin. Bloom and Kerr divorced in October 2013 and have a two year old son. On the flip side, with Orlando now divorced, he spent time with Justin’s ex gf Selena Gomez in April of 2014 in LA. They are now in Ibiza.
