Was Clint Eastwood Being A Jerk About Caitlyn Jenner?

2014 Los Angeles Film Festival - Closing Night Film Premiere Of "Jersey Boys"

NOBODY takes a shot at Cait!

Clint Eastwood took a shot at Caitlyn Jenner when he spoke at Spike TV’s Guys’ Choice Awards on Saturday to introduce Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. He mentioned that Johnson is an athlete who has jumped to acting, much like “Jim Brown and Caitlyn Somebody.”

It’s unclear if he got any laughs, but Spike execs were not happy. A rep told USA Today, Clint’s “joke” will be cut when the show airs later this month.

Now…it’s not a dig on Caitlyn’s transition, so it doesn’t seem super offensive to me. It’s more of like, a dig on her being a forgettable athlete, which seems kind of accurate considering her identity evolution has made her relevant, these days.

What do YOU Think of Clint’s joke? Weigh in below!

Taylor Swift Saturday Night Fever’d The 2015 BMAs

2015 Billboard Music Awards - Press Room

Taylor Swift killed the Billboard Music Awards…and looked amazing while doing it!

Swift won eight awards at the event last night, including top Billboard 200 album for “1989” and top female artist. And of course, what she said when she won made everyone lover her all the more.

“Oh, this is such a good night!” she said after winning the top prize, besting One Direction, Ariana Grande, Sam Smith and Katy Perry. “Early this morning I watched my brother Austin graduate from Notre Dame … (and) to anyone who’s graduating this year … this is for you.”

The star kissed her boyfriend Calvin Harris AND debuted her action-filled music video for “Bad Blood,” which stars Selena Gomez and Lena Dunham and a gaggle of other Swifty pals.

Of course, in my book she also wins best outfit, which isn’t had because there were some TOTAL ATROCITIES this year- but who cares? Swift did a jumpsuit bell bottom white number, with a shaggy bob and smouldering eyes that made her look disco FABULOUS.

Clearly, Swift is on the top of her fashion/music/romantic game! Tell me what you think of her outfit, y’all!

…And Then J. Lo Dissed Mariah Carey’s BMA Performance

2015 Billboard Music Awards

And in more DIVA NEWS…

Jennifer Lopez threw a ton of shade at Mariah Carey… by keeping busy on her smartphone while Mariah was hitting high notes onstage at the Billboard Music Awards.

While Carey was singing her new hit song “Infinity,” J. Lo was casually scrolling through her phone, barely even glancing at the performance in front of her (which, I’m told, was epic).

As Taylor Swift and the rest of the audience stayed respectful… J.Lo chatted up Casper Smart from their front row seats, thinking nothing of talking over a fellow singer (and definitely more talented singer)’s performance.  Of course, though- when the house lights went up at the end of Mimi’s act, she applauded. She’s not THAT rude.

Check out the pretty funny video here. I kinda hope she was like, playing words with friends or something.  Gotta keep those triple word scores up!

Mariah Carey Blew Off BMA Rehearsal

2015 Billboard Music Awards

Mariah Carey sure knows how to be a DIVA.

The singer she bailed on her final rehearsal before the Billboard Music Awards, but apparently it’s not a big deal to miss reho?  TMZ reports:

BMA producers are scrambling because they don’t know what’s going on with Mariah — especially on the heels of her bronchitis issues earlier this week. Our BMA sources say the other reason for concern is … it’s been 17 years since she was last on the award show.

But our Mariah sources are laughing off the panic, because producers shouldn’t be shocked at all. As one source put it, “Nobody does dress [rehearsal]. WTF?? No big stars go … ever.”

As for what happened- Mariah eventually showed and performed 2 songs: “Vision of Love” and her new hit, “Infinity.” Not only did sheshow, she nailed her performance. Oh Maria…ff only you weren’t so talented, it’d be so much more fun to make fun of you (shakes fist to the heavens).
