Last week we had Selena Gomez taking on Vanessa Hudgens. The results:
Selena Gomez 51.5%
Vanessa Hudgens 48.5%
Pretty, pretty, pretty close on this one. Selena gets it by an inch but this went back and forth and either one of them could have taken it. This week we jump into the time machine and re-visit Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Simpson. Both have come a long way and look to be in great shape. Let's snag two pics of their younger selves and match them up for old times sake.
Jennifer Lopez VS Jessica Simpson
PIC OF THE WEEK! Bethany Townsend became a viral sensation when she posted a picture of herself to Facebook last month in a revealing two-piece that accentuated both her beauty and her colostomy bags. Townsend has had Crohn's disease since she was 3 years old and after her bowels burst in 2010, she was fitted for colostomy bags, a device through which her stool collects.
The makeup artist thought she had to give up her dreams of modeling after having surgery, but after her image spread quickly on social media, she's reconsidering her options. Also, she's become an inspiration to other people who live with similar conditions to Townsend's. The world first caught wind of Townsend's photo when she submitted it to Crohn's and Colitis UK -- an organization that works to improve the quality of life for people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), the main forms being Crohn's and ulcerative colitis.
The group posted it to its Facebook page and from there, other people with IBD started sharing their images too, which in turn has helped spread the hashtag#GetYourBellyOut, a movement that aims to raise IBD awareness.
Good for her! And who says this column doesn't teach you something?
WHAT THE HELL?
Don't mess with Clooney! Earlier this week, the Daily Mail printed a story about George Clooney's fiancee Amal Alamuddin's mother objecting to the couple's marriage on the grounds of religious beliefs. After Clooney publicly denounced the article in an op-ed for USA Today, the Mail pulled said story from their site and issued an apology to the actor, saying their story was "not a fabrication." But Clooney is having none of that, and is refusing to accept the Mail's apology.
In a second op-ed published in USA Today, Clooney presses harder and calls the Mail's apology into question after they mix up their supposedly reliable sources. "Either they were lying originally or they're lying now," Clooney writes, adding: "There is one constant when a person or company is caught doing something wrong. The coverup is always worse."
"They knew ahead of time that they were lying," Clooney writes, delving into details of the Mail's mishap. "The Mail knew the story in question was false and printed it anyway. What separates this from all of the ridiculous things the Mail makes up is that now, by their own admission, it can be proved to be a lie. In fact, a premeditated lie."
He goes on to chide the Mail, calling it "the worst kind of tabloid."
Over at The Guardian, Clooney is hailed for his bravery in standing up to the British media behemoth:
"Clooney is using his own power and clout to redefine the damaged dynamic that has existed since the days of gossip-columnist hatchet-jobs in old Hollywood," wrote Ryan Gilbey. "Unlike other celebrities who have complained about the tabloids, it is not the attention itself Clooney resents but its fraudulent basis. His objections revolve less around a defense of A-listers than regret over the decline in journalistic standards."

Batman V Superman!
Bleeding Cool reports that several sources have reported that there are designs for Doomsday to appear in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. The character was created by Dan Jurgens for the 1992 story "The Death of Superman" and featured a battle that took place in all Superman-related titles. Doomsday is a genetically-engineered monster that actually killed Superman. He has appeared several times, even after dying, and made his live action debut in Smallville. The character returned to the New 52 Superman titles in the Scott Lobdell story "Doomed".
There is no official word that Doomsday is in the film and it's unknown how he'll be used if he is. It's best to just take this as a rumor for now.
Is this movie officially out of control to you?
What is your anticipation level at with this movie?
A new TV Spot has been released for Paramount Pictures' Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The film will be released on August 8 and stars Megan Fox, Alan Ritchson, Jeremy Howard, Pete Ploszek, Noel Fisher, Will Arnett, Danny Woodburn, and William Fichtner.
Here's a synopsis: In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April O'Neil (Fox) and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick (Arnett) to save the city and unravel Shredder's diabolical plan.
How will this movie do at the theaters?
Holmes! Ian McKellen has given us the first look at him as a ninety-three year-old Sherlock Holmes in Bill Condon's new film. McKellen shared a picture of himself as the great detective from Mr. Holmes, which is set in 1947. It follows Holmes at the age of 93 without his only friend Dr. Watson and retired to his seaside country home with no company but his housekeeper Mrs. Munro (Laura Linney) and her young son.
Grappling with the diminishing powers of his mind, Holmes comes to rely upon the boy as he revisits the circumstances of the unsolved case that forced him into retirement, and searches for answers to the mysteries of life and love - before it's too late. Also starring in the film are Hattie Morahan (The Golden Compass), Patrick Kennedy (War Horse), Hiroyuki Sanada (The Wolverine), Roger Allam (Tamara Drewe), Phil Davis (Vera Drake), Frances de la Tour (The History Boys), and Milo Parker (Ghosthunters: On Icy Trails).
What do you think of Ian as Holmes?
Looks like Kim Kardashian has some mommy advice.
Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian recently hosted an event to celebrate Babies "R" Us' partnership with Operation Shower, an organization that throws baby showers for military moms-to-be who face pregnancy alone. When the sisters were asked by Elle magazine to give style tips for pregnant women, here's what Kim had to say:
"I recommend hiding for a good year and having no pregnancy style. That's what I recommend. If you can do it, hide. Never leave the house," she said. Even after sister Khloe Kardashian told Kim that her advice wasn't "practical" and prompted Kim to "give a different answer," Kardashian stuck by her advice: "That's really my recommendation," the 33-year-old insisted. "Wear a huge blanket."
The reality star later added, "I will say A Pea in the Pod saved my life -- at the end of my pregnancy. I even wear their tanks now to work out in because they're really long."
From the mouths of babes.
Oh, she also said, in another interview, that she wants to be a MILF.
What's the VIDEO BUZZ?
