Beyoncé has some ‘splainin to do! Which is propably why she felt the need to write an apology letter in the first place, LOLz!
The musical Empress cancelled Tuesday’s Antwerp concert citing “exhaustion” for the cause, an excuse that only fuels the recent rumors that the Grown Woman is preggers with Blue Ivy: Part II…
Yet someone who apparently has access to the VIP attendants list for Cannes revealed Lady Bey is scheduled to appear at the Great Gatsby screening TONIGHT, even though she is supposed to play another show in Belgium!
So… what’s going on girl?!
Well, it seems those peeps over at the Cannes film fest are WRONG, as Bey has CONFIRMED that she’ll be putting on a show for her patient Antwerp fans this evening.
The singer revealed the news in a hand written apology letter posted across her various social media outlets… unfortunately, she did NOT comment on the status of her potential pregnancy, LOLz!
Read the letter in its entirety (below)!
When Helen Mirren dropped some knowledge- and some f-bombs- on a group of drummers playing outside her theatre, she wants it made very clear she was NOT attacking their cause!
The performers were trying to drum up attention for their LGBT pride festival called As One In The Park. And Helen is all for that!
So the Dame made sure to let everyone know she supported the cause with a friendly T-shirt advertising the fest.
Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to see the thoughtful, homemade, 100% cotton apology!
We think the message is pretty darn clear! She says:
“The irony is I love drumming and I love drummers. In another situation I would have been out here enjoying it with all the punters. Unfortunately, I was having to do a play at the same time.”
The drummers more than understood- several came back the next night to apologize to Helen! But her tee’s back said it all- it featured a drawing of a drum and said:
“Yes Please! Just not outside a theatre!”
Geez, Helen. What’s with all the exclamation points? Keep it down, ok? LOLz!

During her first interview since she got put into handcuffs for giving the sweet nectar a bad name by being a boozed up, belligerent wreck, Reese Witherspoon told George Stethoscopealis on Good Morning America that she is sorry for being a bitch to a cop and she was so damn drunk that all kinds of words flew out of her pie hole.
George spoke for all of America when he told Reese that the things about her in the police report didn’t sound like the Reese Witherspoon all of us know. Well, I pretty much only know Reese from the characters she’s played in movies and what she told the cop is exactly what some of her characters (see: Tracy Flick and Vanessa Lutz aka the only characters of hers that matters) would say to a cop, so shut up and speak for yourself, George.
Anyway, Reese must’ve spent all of her Wednesday night memorizing and rehearsing this apology speech with her team of publicists, because it was the best interview she could’ve given and she acted her ass off. Reese said that her and her husband Jim Toth had too many glasses of wine while out to dinner in Atlanta and made the mistake of turning their Ford Focus into a death machine on wheels by driving drunk. Reese said that they both know better and they should’ve never done that and they’ll never do it again. George then brought up the spoiled stream of entitled shit that came out of Reese’s drunk mouth (example: “Do you know my name?” and “You’re about to be on national news!“) and she explained it like this:
“I saw [the cop] arresting my husband and I literally panicked. I told him I was pregnant. I’m not pregnant. I said all kinds of crazy things.”
Reese then mouth farted out this line that I’m sure at least four screenwriters wrote for her: “I played a lawyer in a movie so many times I think I am a lawyer. . .And clearly I’m not a lawyer because I got arrested.”
And then Reese’s entire damage control team ran in front of the cameras and took their bows as Jim Toth threw roses at their feet.
Reese should always be drunk, because telling a cop that she’s pregnant while being drunk off her ass is the funniest thing she’s ever done. I’m surprised she didn’t pull an old timey stunt by fake fainting. And if Reese really wanted to tell the cop some crazy shit, she should’ve told him that she’s an Oscar winner and is one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood.

Dlisted – Be Very Afraid
This is a Hollywood first!!
While giving a promotional interview for the forthcoming ‘roid rage action-dramedy Pain & Gain, famed director Michael Bay SHOCKED the dookie out of our kabookie by apologizing for making
several one crappy movie!!
The man was displeased with the Bruce Willis, Liv Tyler, and Ben Affleck big-time blockbuster Armageddon, and he told the Miami Herald as much.
“I will apologize for Armageddon, because we had to do the whole movie in 16 weeks. It was a massive undertaking. That was not fair to the movie. I would redo the entire third act if I could. But the studio literally took the movie away from us. It was terrible. My visual effects supervisor had a nervous breakdown, so I had to be in charge of that. I called James Cameron and asked ‘What do you do when you’re doing all the effects yourself?’ But the movie did fine.”
First of all, we think it’s cool he can admit to releasing a sub-par product. Most directors wouldn’t!
While we actually kind of enjoyed the cheesy doomsday movie and it’s accompanying Aerosmith song, the sentiment is noble!
Secondly, Mike really needs to be addressing the biggest blemish on
his anyone’s resume: Pearl Harbor.
The late Roger Ebert once described that abhorrent waste of celluloid by saying:
Pearl Harbor is a two-hour movie squeezed into three hours, about how on Dec. 7, 1941, the Japanese staged a surprise attack on an American love triangle.
Ouch! But enough about mediocre movies starring Mr. Affleck, LOLz!!
The director also revealed that ultra-hottie Megan Fox wouldn’t reprise her role in Transformers 4!
We knew their relationship was rocky at best, but her absence in the upcoming robo-flick feels like the final nail in their collaborative coffin!
Mark Wahlberg and the surgically improved Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson star in Pain & Gain, which opens wide April 26.

A few days ago Rick Ross was BOOTED from the Reebok brand over the date-rape controversy stemming from certain lyrics in his latest tune U.O.E.N.O. …
So naturally, the rap star (finally) felt compelled to ACTUALLY apologize for seemingly condoning (and promoting) the act of DRUGGING a girl’s drink for the purpose of later f*cking the same girl without her consent.
Or even consciousness.
Rick’s official apology states:
“Before I am an artist, I am a father, a son, and a brother to some of the most cherished women in the world. So for me to suggest in any way that harm and violation be brought to a woman is one of my biggest mistakes and regrets. As an artist, one of the most liberating things is being able to paint pictures with my words. But with that comes a great responsibility. And most recently, my choice of words was not only offensive, it does not reflect my true heart. And for this, I apologize. To every woman that has felt the sting of abuse, I apologize. I recognize that as an artist I have a voice and with that, the power of influence. To the young men who listen to my music, please know that using a substance to rob a woman of her right to make a choice is not only a crime, it’s wrong and I do not encourage it. To my fans, I also apologize if I have disappointed you. I can only hope that this sparks a healthy dialogue and that I can contribute to it.” —William Roberts (a.k.a “Rick Ross”)”
Well, that’s a hell of a lot more sincere than Rick’s previous Twitter “apology“!
Glad to hear that Ross has undergone some serious self reflection…
And we’re sure the fact that Reebok dropped him had NOTHING to do with these apparently heartfelt words.
Whoops! His bad!!
James Gunn, director of the upcoming Disney/Marvel flick Guardians of the Galaxy, shat the bed and he doesn’t deny it.
Instead of slipping out in the middle of the night and leaving us with feces covered sheets, the filmmaker stuck around to do the wash.
After recent attention was drawn to a satirical but ultimately unfunny/offensive blog post he made last year, he’s offering the world his retraction and apology via Facebook.
The post, titled The 50 Superheroes You Most Want to Have Sex With, graphically detailed ways in which he might bang (or be banged by) the sexiest guys and gals in comics.
In regards to Flash, for example, James wrote, “if I was going to get f**ked in the butt, I too would want it to be by someone who would get it over with quick.”
Ugh! What unpleasant imagery!!
Whether his blog post was homophobic or just crudely offensive, Mzr. Gunn knows it was regrettable.
This morning, on FB, he wrote:
“A couple of years ago I wrote a blog that was meant to be satirical and funny. In rereading it over the past day I don’t think it’s funny. The attempted humor in the blog does not represent my actual feelings. However, I can see where statements were poorly worded and offensive to many. I’m sorry and regret making them at all
…I’m an outspoken proponent for the rights of the gay and lesbian community, women and anyone who feels disenfranchised, and it kills me that some other outsider like myself, despite his or her gender or sexuality, might feel hurt or attacked by something I said. We’re all in the same camp, and I want to do my best to make this world a better place for all of us.”
His reflections sound sincere to us.
Still, some might argue James only issued the retraction to avoid mucking up his big-budget movie set to hit theaters in August 2014.
It’s true that Disney probably doesn’t want the press surrounding this movie to focus on the allegations of the director’s misogyny and/or homophobia instead of, say, how friggin’ awesome the film looks.
Perhaps, but we found another of his posts which seems to more genuinely reflect his feelings on equality in gender and sexuality.
On October 11th, National Coming Out Day, James said:
Today is National Coming Out Day. If you’re gay, and you’ve been keeping this from others, today is a good day to let your loved ones know. If you’re not gay, support those who are. If you hate gays, recent studies show that homophobic people are far likelier to harbor same-sex attraction. So you are probably gay too, and we love you also.
Many years ago, one of my best friends from high school came out to me as a gay man. Back then, I wasn’t the most forward-thinking dude in this area (I’m a dickhead punk rock kid from Missouri), but I STILL took this as a huge honor – and a huge relief. Some sort of truth, a level of intimacy I had with my other friends, had been missing from our relationship. That all opened up in one fell swoop. I saw, very clearly, that a person’s sexuality is part of the truth of who they are.
If you’re gay and struggling with it, most of us are here for you. We love you. And you’re okay just the way you are
Well put, sir — but your work here isn’t done!!
You’re about to make the biggest and most watched film of your career!
Much like your Marvel predecessor Joss Whedon did before you in The Avengers (and, obvi, Buffy), you should seize this great opportunity to silence your critics and push the envelope toward equality!
So, yeah, do that. And make a kick-ass movie too!
And then we will totes forgive you, LOLz!!
