Lindsay Lohan Didn’t Like Jennifer Lawrence’s Dig at Lindsay
Jennifer Lawrence was on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Monday, and she took a shot at Lindsay Lohan while talking about how hard she works. She said, quote, “I don’t stop working, and so I just keep going until eventually my body is just, like, ‘If we don’t make her barf or pass out, she won’t stop.’ I get, Lindsay Lohan-grade exhaustion, but without any drugs or alcohol.” Well, Lindsay’s sister Ali called her out on Twitter. Quote, “I never breathe life into negativity. But I stand by my family. Disappointed in Jennifer Lawrence. You lost a fan.” She later edited the Tweet, deleting the part about losing a fan, and replacing it with, quote, “Not cool.” So maybe she’s still a fan after all? And Lindsay appreciated it. She Tweeted, quote, “Thank you sister. Maybe who you’re referring to should learn to support others like #MayaAngelou.” She added a quote from Maya saying: “You may shoot me with your words, you may cut me with your eyes, you may kill me with your hatefulness, but still, like air, I’ll rise.”Which seems a little melodramatic, right? I mean, Lindsay must have heard worse. Get more here.
Sportsperson of the Year Serena Williams Couldn’t Finish Her Own 5K
“Sports Illustrated’s” Sportsperson of the Year Serena William had an amazing year on the court, but on Sunday, she couldn’t even finish her own 5K. Apparently, she wasn’t feeling it, because mid-way through, she hailed a cab and had it drive her to the finish line. But she wasn’t trying to pull a fast one on anybody, she posted a video on Facebook admitting that she didn’t finish, quote, “I didn’t run the whole way this year. But next year I will!” For what it’s worth, there’s word that Serena never intended on running this year due to injuries, but decided at the last minute to jog the first half of the race just to support the runners. Of course, everyone who wanted American Pharoah named Sportsperson of the Year is going to enjoy this. Can a horse run a 5K? It’s the second year Serena has organized the run. It benefits her charity, which helps people affected by senseless violence, and ensures that everyone has equal access to education. Get more here.

Watch Madonna Cuss Out a Crowd That Booed Her For Starting Late
Madonna’s show in Manchester, England yesterday started about 50 minutes late because of a problem with her video and lighting system. When she finally did take the stage, she got booed. So she cussed out the crowd. First she thanked them for waiting, but then she let them have it: Quote, “I don’t like to be late, by the way, and all you [B-words] who keep complaining about it can shut the [eff] up. “I’m not back there eating chocolates and filing my nails and getting my extensions done.” She added, quote, “If you diva [B-words] wanna keep complaining about it, then don’t come to my show.” Here’s uncensored video:
FACTS: its good to have them before you jump to conclusions! The Entire video for my show crashed as I arrived for sound check. The back up file was corrupt. We had no choice but to reboot and pray for a good outcome. The video lights 75 % of my show. We cant play in the dark. We were rebooted and ready by 9:30 even though we planned to go ion earlier. I had to make cuts in show before show started. Dress you Up was one of them and my 3rd guitar song. This still brought us past the 11:00 curfew! But we went on and the venue was kind enough to extend till 111:39!! It was their choice not mine to end the show!! always want to finish. So we all missed the last 3 songs! And I’m sorry about that. And i thank all my Rebel Heart fans for understanding! We did our best! And we still had to pay a fine! That’s life. 😂. PS you still got to see an amazing show!! And only missed. 12 minutes!! The ❤️#rebelhearttour goes on
