The sci-fi flop After Earth starring Will Smith and his son Jaden has been crowned the worst movie of 2013 by the film site Rifftrax.com. Recalling the film Battlefield Earth starring John Travolta, another epic disaster, the site notes: "In 2000, John Travolta laid down the challenge: 'You will never, EVER make a big budget sci-fi vanity project with a two-word title, the second word being 'Earth,' as colossally awful as the one I have made.' Thirteen years later Will Smith beat his challenge." Second place was the SyFy channel's television movie Sharknado. Rounding out the top five: Grown Ups 2, Movie 43 and Iron Man 3.
The latest subject of Charlie Sheen's wrath? Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson. In response to the Robertson patriarch's controversial remarks on homosexuality, Sheen posted a Twitter rant directed at him, which appeared to be written in the form of free verse poetry and included a photo of a pigeon that Sheen presumably mistook for a duck. "Your statements were and are abhorrently and mendaciously unforgivable," he wrote on Saturday. "You have offended and hurt so many dear friends of mine, who DO NOT have the voice or the outreach that I do... You are now in the crosshairs of a MaSheen style media beat down." Hmmm... who would you put your money on?
Shoppers at the Walmart in Tewksbury, Massachusetts on Friday night got the shock of their lives when Beyoncé showed up to spread some holiday cheer. Queen Bey got on the loudspeaker to announce, "I want to give everyone a gift. For everyone in the store right now, the first $50 of your holiday gifts are on me. Merry, merry Christmas from Beyoncé!" The R&B star handed out a total of 750 $50 gift cards to shoppers. Beyoncé even did a little shopping of her own -- she purchased a doll for her daughter Blue Ivy and a copy of her just-released self-titled album.

Is yet another pop star on the verge of a breakdown? Selena Gomez has canceled her Australian tour next year, saying that she needs to focus on herself. "My fans are so important to me and I would never want to disappoint them," the singer says in a statement. "But it has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be." Perhaps that includes vocal lessons -- Gomez performed at the Jingle Ball in L.A. earlier this month where an audio glitch exposed that she was lip-syncing. The pop star responded by dropping the F-bomb and walking off the stage.
YouTube's KaraokeOnVEVO service released a list of its 10 most popular karaoke songs of 2013. Topping the list is Pink's duet with Nate Ruess, "Just Give Me a Reason." The karaoke video of the song earned over 1.5 million views this year. Here's the complete top 10:
The critics at Billboard have named Beyoncé's self-titled fifth solo record the best album of 2013, stating, "'Beyoncé' is stellar, standing tall amongst the albums it leapfrogged to land at No. 1... This is an album made by a fearless, grown-a** woman—somehow self-assured, stoic, fragile and thoughtful all at once." Beyoncé just nudged out Kanye West's Yeezus, which Billboard lauds as the rapper's "most radical album by a long shot." Here's the complete list of Billboard's 15 best albums of 2013:

Khloe Kardashian has broken her silence on filing for divorce from Lamar Odom (via Twitter, naturally). "This, in and of itself, is heart breaking and torture to my soul," she wrote on Wednesday afternoon. "Please, I don't need the extra rumors and BS right now." The "rumors" the reality star is referring to are likely those that she's swiftly moved on from Odom to baseball star Matt Kemp. Khloe also displayed her flair for melodrama this week by stepping out in a sweatshirt emblazoned, "Nothing was the same."
Britney Spears gave diehard fan James Colbourn the shock of his life on the U.K. TV show Surprise Surprise. The pop star went incognito as a waitress at London's Savoy Hotel and approached James' table from behind, asking if he'd like tea and scones. The look on his face when he recognizes his idol is priceless. "She was so sweet, so nice, so down-to-earth," he gushed. "I can't imagine how any other Christmas now is going to beat this one." James’ sister Sadie nominated him for the special event as a thank you for helping raise her two disabled children with cerebral palsy. James also received a trip to Las Vegas to see his favorite pop star perform.
Last night marked the finale of season three of FOX's The X Factor, and there's already talk about who could be on the judges panel next season.

Cowell also said that his dream line-up would include his former fellow American Idol judges Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson, along with Cyrus who he says "has an opinion for sure."

During a radio interview with L.A.'s Power 106 yesterday morning, Justin Bieber made a shocking statement, saying that after the release of his new album Journals, "I'm actually retiring." After a video clip of Bieber making the statement was released, the web went into a flurry of speculation. But before all you haters start celebrating, Bieber's reps have confirmed that the pop star was only joking. In the same interview, Bieber did state that he wants his music to "mature." He also claimed, "People think I'm arrogant, I'm not, I've always been a caring and giving person."
John Mayer and Katy Perry stopped by Good Morning America yesterday to debut a sappy new video for their duet "Who You Love." The video shows a variety of couples, including Mayer and Perry, riding a mechanical bull together, in slow motion, and clips of Mayer and Perry gazing into each other's eyes as they sing the song. When Perry sings her verse, she demonstratively strokes Mayer's face. In a joint interview, Mayer admitted that he was hesitant to do a duet with his girlfriend but said, "It is a pretty big moving target to be a couple and have a song, but I think there's an authenticity to it."
A Shia LaBeouf-directed short film that premiered at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival has now been assailed for lifting large chunks of dialogue from a comic book. The film, HowardCantor.com, debuted online yesterday, and bloggers immediately noticed its striking resemblance to Daniel Clowes' comic, Justin M. Damiano. The film soon became password-protected online, and LaBeouf admitted on Twitter yesterday, "I f**ked up." However, what's even more cringeworthy is that his lengthy apology bears a striking resemblance to a Yahoo! Answers post from four years ago. HuffPo has posted the two for a side-by-side comparison and it makes LaBeouf look even worse.

Katy Perry got caught in a sticky situation at the NRJ Music Awards in Cannes this weekend. At the beginning of her performance of "Roar," a vocal track started playing way too early, catching Perry off guard and out of sync with the song's timing. Things got even more awkward when a man appeared on stage during the performance and interrupted a visibly annoyed Perry, saying, "If you don't mind, we can restart. We had a little problem." The problem in question, of course, is that Perry's pre-recorded vocal track started without her. When Perry restarted the performance, she appeared to be singing live (albeit, pretty badly) without the backing track.
Justin Timberlake stepped out of the spotlight as his Louisville concert this weekend to let a fan come on stage and propose to his girlfriend. Timberlake brought the man, Josh, and his girlfriend Kim onto the stage and said to Kim, "Josh called me earlier. He's got something he wants to tell you." The audience cheered as Josh got down on one knee and popped the question, while Timberlake smiled and clapped from the side of the stage. Kim accepted, and the couple shared a kiss while still on stage. Timberlake later tweeted a video of the special moment, writing, "And then this happened in Louisville..."
After only three days, Beyonce's stealth self-titled album broke the U.S. iTunes Store's record for the largest sales week for an album ever, selling 617,000 downloads by the end of Sunday. Likely helping the album's sales is the fact that none of its tracks are available a la carte; the 14-song set is being sold for $15.99 and comes with 18 videos. The previous one-week iTunes sales record was set by Taylor Swift's Red, which sold 465,000 copies in October 2012.
Elysium, Kick-Ass 2, Prisoners, The Lone Ranger, One Direction: This Is Us, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, Ghost Team One, Ain't Them Bodies Saints, Devil's Pass, Contest, The Family, Force of Execution, Newlyweeds and Mission Park are all out on DVD today

Beyonce shocked her fans last night by unexpectedly releasing her entire new self-titled on iTunes without any advance notice. The diva posted a video to her Instagram last night, a montage of images that included the word "Surprise!" flashing on the screen and referred to the record as a "visual album." The album is a 14-song collection that includes collaborations with her husband Jay Z, Drake, Frank Ocean, and, on a track called "Blue," her baby daughter Blue Ivy Carter. Every song is also accompanied by a video. "Grown Woman," the promotional track that Beyonce has been performing on her world tour, appears as a video but is not on the album's track list.
Brimfield Police Chief David Oliver of Ohio has penned a hilarious open letter to Kanye West, blasting him for comparing his plight as a rap superstar to that of cops and soldiers. Posted on his department's Facebook page, it reads: "Since you are accustomed to danger, I am strongly encouraging you to immediately abandon you career as a super star and join the military... When the Taliban starts shooting at you, perhaps you could stand up and let the words flow. I’m sure they would just drop weapons and surrender. You could quite possibly end all wars, just from the enemy being star-struck." The police chief also warns Kanye, "Check yourself, before you wreck yourself."
Lady Gaga and Celine Dion are slated to perform on the fifth season finale of The Voice on December 17. Gaga will perform her R.

Simon Cowell really is planning to name his first son after himself -- at least according to an attendee of the baby shower he threw on Sunday for his baby mama, Lauren Silverman. "It shouldn’t come as a shock, but Simon and Lauren really seem to be planning to name their son Simon!" the eyewitness told RadarOnline.com. "There were baby clothes and little games all personalized with the name 'Simon' for the baby." The source continued, "From what everyone -- including Lauren -- was saying, they are 100 percent naming their son Simon." The baby boy is due in February.
X Factor judge Demi Lovato tells Access Hollywood her cocaine use was out of control. "I couldn't go 30 minutes to an hour without cocaine, and I would bring it on airplanes. I would smuggle it basically and just wait until everyone in first class would go to sleep, and I would do it right there. I'd sneak to the bathroom, and I'd do it. That’s how difficult it got and that was even with somebody [with me]. I had a sober companion, somebody who was watching me 24/7 and living with me [and] I was able to hide it from them as well.”
Britney Spears debuted her new music video for "Perfume" via Twitter yesterday. Spears strips down to her white lacy lingerie in the clip while getting hot and heavy with the male model who plays her lover. The video was directed by Joseph Kahn, the man behind Spears' iconic "Toxic" and "Stronger" videos. Kahn complained about the edited version of the video on Twitter yesterday, writing, "Wish they'd release the director's cut of #perfume. Britney's performance is unbelievable. A true artist in it. Game changer... it's a true loss not to see what she really did. It's incredible. Beyond other artists." Spears' fans are now petitioning her record label to release the director's cut.

MTV has named Miley Cyrus its Artist of the Year -- no big surprise, considering Cyrus' nasty twerk session with Robin Thicke earned mega-publicity for the network's 2013 Video Music Awards. They also created a documentary about her -- Miley: The Movement -- and gave her control of the network on her 21st birthday. In an announcement yesterday, MTV said that Cyrus and Thicke's VMAs performance was the most-watched video on their websites this year and that the MTV site devoted to Cyrus got more page views than any other artist's.
Kanye West has sparked outrage by comparing the dangers of his job to those faced by members of law enforcement and soldiers on the front lines. “Like, I’m just giving of my body on the stage; I’m putting my life at risk, literally!” West told SaturdayNightOnline.com over the weekend. Apparently, the big risk on his Yeezus tour is the manufactured mountain he performs atop during the show. "If I slipped… You never know," he said. "And I think about it, I think about my family and I’m like, 'Wow... This is like, being a police officer or something, in war or something.'" Right, being a famous rapper is just like that. Delusional, much?

Linday Lohan has been accused of orchestrating the attack on Paris Hilton's brother Barron. Yes, seriously. Apparently on Friday night, Lindsay was at a party in Miami and overheard Barron talking smack about her. The troubled "actress" then allegedly sent out orders for someone to mess up his face. More drama ensued when Barron posted photos of his busted mug on Instagram and Paris went into protective older sister mode by writing -- then deleting -- on the social media site, "They both will pay for what they did. No one f**ks with my family and gets away with it!!" TMZ has identified the attacker as New York resident Ray Lemoine.
Jay Z leads the field of 2014 Grammy nominations, which were announced on Friday night. The rapper scored nine nominations, although he was shut out of all the major categories. Justin Timberlake received seven nominations but was also surprisingly shut out of the Album, Record and Song of the Year categories. 2013 newbies Macklemore & Ryan Lewis also scored seven nominations, including Album of the Year (for The Heist) and Song of the Year (for "Same Love"). The Seattle hip-hoppers will also compete for Best New Artist, against Ed Sheeran, James Blake, Kendrick Lamar, and Kacey Musgraves.
Selena Gomez dropped the F-bomb and stormed off the stage during her set at the KIIS FM Jingle Ball in L.A. Friday. Video has emerged of the self-described "good girl" losing her cool and very audibly yelling, "What the f**k!?"HollywoodLife.com reports that the singer was performing with a backing track and that when sound issues caused that track to cut out, it was embarrassingly revealed that she was lip-syncing. Eyewitnesses say she was "visibly angry" and that she only performed one more song when she later returned to the stage. Maybe it's time she focus on her acting career instead?

One Direction's new album Midnight Memories debuts at the top of the Billboard 200, selling 546,000 units in its opening week. It marks a history-making moment for the boy band -- they're the first group to have its first three albums debut at #1. They're also the first group to reach #1 with its first three albums since 1967. With Midnight Memories, One Direction became the third pop group to earn multiple half-million sales week since tracking began in 1991. The only other two groups to have more than one album sell over 500,00 copies in one week are One Direction's boy band predecessors, the Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync.
Blink-182 have confirmed that they will release a new full-length album of new material next year, their first since 2009's Neighborhoods. (They released a 5-song EP, Dogs Eating Dogs, in December 2012). The trio will headline the 2014 Reading and Leeds Festivals in August, and singer Mark Hoppus tells BBC Radio 1 that they'll have new song to play by then: "We are coming with new material," he promises. "We go into the studio after the holidays, and the goal is to have an album out in time for the festival.
The Sunday World and Daily Star claim Justin Bieber has instructed his guards to watch him while he sleeps. A source tells the sites, "Justin can't be alone at night right now. He is paranoid about fans breaking into his room, and he hears noises all the time. It freaks him out. As well as the ever-present guard in his room and the one outside, he also has two on standby to take over when his men need breaks. All of the burly guys are around 6ft 5in tall and weigh around 250lb. He wants an army of giants protecting him. Justin is now used to having a guard watch him sleep and he wants the arrangement to continue after the tour finishes."

Zooey Deschanel may play a happy-go-lucky character on New Girl, but she's allegedly driving her co-stars crazy with her diva behavior on set. A source tells Radar, "Zooey rules the roost. And she gets moody and starts making rules on the set which is upsetting a lot of the cast and crew members.'' The source goes on to say that Deschanel has been making unreasonable demands about her filming schedule and that when she doesn't get her way, "she's unhappy and all hell breaks loose.''

Beyonce was named the most-searched person in 2013 on the online search engine Bing, edging out 2012's list-topper, reality television star Kim Kardashian, who came in second. Women continued to dominate the most-searched list for a second year running, as singers Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Madonna rounded out the top five. Justin Bieber, who ranked second place in 2012, dropped to sixth this year. Rapper Nicki Minaj and pop singer Miley Cyrus, who both made the list in 2012, also were in the top 10, joined by troubled actress Amanda Bynes, who came in at No. 8.
Barbara Walters has released the names of all but the individual she'll deem the most fascinating person of the year during her annual special on December 18, which will be the retiring broadcaster's last-ever.
