Taylor Swift's Twitter Gets Hacked, Laughs In The Face Of Her Ha
Why would anyone want to hack Taylor Swift?

Of all the many hackable entities in this world- governments and banks and such- Taylor Swift seems like seems like small potatoes. Also, we totally do not endorse hacking your government and/or bank. Super illegal.

But Swift did become the target of hackers- both her Twitter and Instagram were illegally hijacked yesterday.

And the reason we know this is because the hackers tweeted their own Twitter handle to Swift's millions of followers, in an attempt to gain new followers.

One tweet read, "go follow my bow, @lizzard :)" and the other "shou...

Did Tom Cruise And The Church Of Scientology Tap Nicole Kidman's
On Sunday, the Sundance Film Festival hosted the premiere of "Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief," a new documentary about Scientologists from filmmaker Alex Gibney.

And according to those who saw "Going Clear" at the festival, the film has revealed startling new information about Scientology, and just how deeply it cuts into the entertainment industry.

It's so much more horrible than you'd think.

For one, the film claims that the Church was not a fan of Tom Cruise's wife Nicole Kidman (her father is a psychiatrist, and psychiatrists are the enemy), and at Cruise's request...

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have found themselves in a position of isolated limbo as they alienate the courtiers and have cavalierly ignored the public for so many months.

As Duchess Kate spends time tending to her health and preparing for the arrival of her second child, she has ignored serious public events, only recently coming into public life. The Queen has allegedly expressed impatience, but mindful of the delicate health of...

Why Are Muslims Mad At Selena Gomez?
Selena Gomez has gotten herself in trouble for showing a little too much skin.

Just... not the skin you're thinking of (and please, don't tell us what skin you're thinking of). She's under fire for showing off her ankle.

Gomez and friends (specifically: Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Cody Simpson and Shay Mitchell) visited the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi this week.

They took a few pictures- one of everyone goofing around, and another of Gomez pulling aside her ankle-length skirt to show off some leg.

And all of that is a GIGANTIC no-no, per mosque rules. The mosque strictly forb...
