Amanda Bynes arrested for DUI

No, we didn’t just take a trip in the Wayback Machine. Amanda Bynes really did just get arrested for driving under the influence — again.

The erstwhile Nickelodeon star turned super-hot mess turned squeaky-clean design student has apparently relapsed into hot messiness.

The former child star, who says she’s retired from acting a la Shia LaBeouf, was pulled over at 4 a.m. Sunday after stopping in the middle of a Los Angeles intersection. The 28-year-old failed a series of field sobriety tests and was evaluated at a police station where she was determined to be under the influence of an unidentified drug.

The What I Like About You star was cooperative, according to the Associated Press, but she did “appear disheveled” when she was booked, which approximately zero people would find surprising.

Bynes, who was released on $15,000 bail, is still on probation for a 2012 incident in which she clipped an L.A. County sheriff’s cruiser and was arrested for DUI. She was ordered to complete a three-month alcohol education program as part of the plea deal. …

Robert Pattinson’s girlfriend FKA Twigs target of racist trolling

Getty Images

Just when you thought the Twilight saga was over comes this horrible ugliness courtesy of trolls far and wide.

Seems the Twihards of the world just can’t let go of their dream Robert Pattinson-Kristen Stewart stunt relationship, so they’re going after R-Pat’s new girl, British singer-songwriter FKA Twigs. And by “going after” her we mean “berating her with disgusting racist remarks that have no place in society whatsoever.”

Twilight fans, Pattinson fans and Stewart fans have taken to Twitter to call Twigs a variety of epithets, the most popular of which is monkey. The hate comes one week after the couple went public with their relationship, but Twigs isn’t having it. The half-Jamaican, half-Spanish performer took to Twitter to say what all the sane people of the world are thinking.

“I am genuinely shocked and disgusted at the amount of racism that has been infecting my account the past week,” wrote the 26-year-old, real name Tahliah Debrett Barnett. “Racism is unacceptable in the real world and it’s unacceptable online.” …

A flustered Kimye enters the Balmain fashion show moments after Thursday's incident.

Seriously, what is wrong with this guy and when is somebody going to stop him?

Former Ukrainian journalist Vitalii Sediuk is back to his creepy celebrity-pranking ways, this time pretty much tackling Kim Kardashian outside of the Balmain fashion show in Paris.

In a frightening scene on Thursday, a video obtained by TMZ shows Kim exiting a vehicle surrounded by hundreds of photographers and fans. Soon after she and mom Kris Jenner emerged from the car, Sediuk, 25, lunged toward Kim and wrapped himself around her lower body, nearly causing her to fall to the ground.

Fortunately, security was nearby and came to the rescue, one guard physically picking up Kim in the midst of the mayhem and pulled her out of Sediuk’s grip. As the chaos unfolded, Kim shouted for husband Kanye West to help, but the newlyweds were separated by a car and a frenzied throng of onlookers. …

Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa are heading for divorce, and the Internet is all over the place when it comes to what caused the split. Some sources are saying she cheated. Most are saying he cheated. As for the couple, Rose is the only one talking.

“Please stop with the fake stories. I would never ever ever cheat on my husband in a million years,” she tweeted Thursday. “Unfortunately my now ex husband can’t say the same...”

TMZ reported that Khalifa feared Rose was getting too close to Mariah Carey’s estranged husband Nick Cannon, who happens to be the head of Rose’s new management company NCredible. Cannon has denied any romantic connection.

The gossip site also says Khalifa didn’t want Rose to accompany him on his tour, telling her to stay at home with their 1-year-old son, Sebastian, so he could focus on making money for the family.

The 30-year-old model married the 27-year-old rapper last summer, four months after their child was born. TMZ says Rose filed for divorce on Tuesday and is seeking custody with visitation rights for Khalifa.

“I’m devastated and crushed but my main focus is Sebastian,” she tweeted. “Thank u for all the support in this difficult time.”

Mike Sorrentino of 'Jersey Shore' is in a sticky Situation

AP

We’re not sure which is more disappointing: that Jersey Shore alum Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino earns millions of dollars a year or that he and his brother are accused of filing bogus tax returns on nearly $9 million and claiming millions in business expenses that were really for personal use.

According to the Associated Press, Mike and his brother Marc Sorrentino pleaded not guilty to the charges in U.S. District Court on Wednesday. As The Sitch left the courthouse, he answered the question of whether he is innocent with a smile and an “of course.”

Each brother was released on $250,000 bail. Arraignment is scheduled for Oct. 6.

According to an indictment released Wednesday, the brothers earned about $8.9 million between 2010 and 2012. The pair are accused of understating their personal and business income, and Mike Sorrentino also is accused of failing to file taxes in 2011. (He brought in $2 million that year.) …

Cuba Gooding Jr. shows us the tummy

Twitter

How does Cuba Gooding Jr. celebrate at a hockey game? By stripping, duh.

Maybe nobody told him it’s still preseason, but for whatever reason, Gooding went wild — like, Girls Gone-style — after scoring during the “Shoot the Puck” intermission contest at a Blackhawks-Red Wings exhibition game.

The rules are simple: Contestants are given three chances to shoot the puck from center ice into one of three holes in the net. Gooding, a hockey enthusiast, riled up the crowd before failing on his first two attempts. When the third shot proved successful, the Jerry Maguire actor slowly peeled off his jacket, then unbuttoned his shirt and ripped it open in a Hulk-like fashion.

“I’m fairly sure we’re not going to top this the rest of the season,” the announcer joked.

Gooding was in Chicago filming his new Fox show Empire, co-starring Terrence Howard.

Avril Lavigne, Chad Kroeger heading for divorce

But they look so happy together.

But they look so happy together.

Weep, people of Canada, for your very own rock royals are giving up on each other.

Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger are divorcing after a year of marriage.

“It’s over,” a source tells Us Weekly. “He has been going around L.A. telling people that they are divorcing.”

That tends to happen after getting engaged one month into your relationship.

Kroeger, 39, asked Lavigne, 10 years his junior, to marry him in August 2012. They got hitched almost a year later in a gothic-themed wedding at a medieval castle in the South of France. The bride wore black.

“Chad is just a complete jerk in the way he talks to her, and the way he talks to people in general” an insider close to the Hello Kitty rocker tells Us. “A lot of her friends don’t like him.”

Including said insider, obviously.

However, an E! News source sounds a little more positive — or confused. Even though the couple is “fighting a lot” and “having a lot of issues,” the gossip said, “she really wants to have a baby. She was hoping, after this album, to take time off and start a family.”

Yep. That’ll solve everything. …

John Malkovich re-creates iconic photographs

Sandro Miller

No need to hack this A-lister’s iCloud. This majestic and hypnotising vision of John Malkovich as Bert Stern’s “Marilyn in Pink Roses” is all thanks to a collaboration between the actor and advertising photographer Sandro Miller.

The pair have been friends for 15 years, and often, according to the Washington Post, Malkovich would waltz into Miller’s studio game for anything. So, one day, Miller flew to his pal’s home in France to propose a huge project: re-creating some of the most iconic images in photography with Malkovich as the subject. Think Dorothea Lange’s “Migrant Mother,” Andy Warhol’s “Green Marilyn” and “Self Portrait (Fright Wig),” Albert Watson’s “Alfred Hitchcock With Goose.” You know the ones.

Malkovich posed for 30 reproductions with tens of thousands of dollars worth of costumes, makeup and wigs, transforming into characters from Salvador Dali and Truman Capote to Muhammad Ali and Ernest Hemingway.

“He’s probably the most confident man I’ve ever run across,” Miller said of Malkovich. “He allowed himself to be that very, very sensual, sexual woman,” he added of the Marilyn Monroe photo. …

'D2: Mighty Ducks' cast reunites after 20 (!) years

Instagram

It’s been 20 years since D2: The Mighty Ducks came out — pause for a moment of silence for our youth, which is now very much R-ing.I.P. — so the cast decided to get together and post pictures on the Internet because that’s what forgotten actors of the ’90s do these days. #nostalgia.

After weeding through the photos that look like a bunch of random people hanging out in Anywheresville, U.S.A., we chose these two that might actually look familiar.

First: “Connie and Guy finally!” Christopher Redman, the husband of Marguerite Moreau, who played Connie, captioned this photo of his wife and Garette Ratliff Henson, who played Guy.

And then there’s this gem: “Flying V!!!! Scott Whyte, Aaron Schwartz, Colombe Jacobsen, mike Vitar, Stephen Herek, rob Lieberman, Vincent LaRusso, @garretth Elden Henden, Carsten Norwgard, Jordan Kerner, Brandon Adams, Danny Tamborelli, Asron Lohr, Maria Ellingsen, Matt Dohery, Shawn Weiss #mightyducks #mD2 #20yearreunion #ducksflytogether.”

Together ducks fly indeed, except, of course, Joshua Jackson, Kenan Thompson and Emilio Estevez, who clearly had better things to do.

Twitter

The erstwhile “Lil” Bow Wow isn’t so Lil anymore. Love & Hip Hop star Erica Mena has locked down the 27-year-old rapper after only six months of dating, E! News reports.

“Uhh … he’s actually my fiancé,” Mena said on the red carpet at Saturday’s BET Hip Hop Awards when asked if the 106 & Park host also known as Shad Moss was her boyfriend.

The couple later confirmed the news with an ever so tacky Instagram of her ring and his iced-out Rolex.

“I still can’t believe it’s real,” Mena told New York’s Hot 97 FM of their engagement. “I’m doing things different with this one. I’m protecting this one more than ever.”

The couple first met — and kissed — on 106 & Park. They started dating soon after.

Thirsty for more info? We’re sure these two will be more than happy to lay it all out for you on the newest season of Love & Hip Hop, which premieres in November.

Keyshia Cole was arrested and booked on suspicion of misdemeanor battery after a fight early Friday at Birdman’s house in Los Angeles.

According to the Associated Press, Grammy-nominated R&B singer was arrested around 5 a.m. “after someone initiated a private person’s arrest.”

The 32-year-old was released after posting $46,000 bail Friday afternoon.

Cole and the Cash Money CEO are dating, and from the sounds of things the woman Cole attacked may have been a Cash Money employee.

Sources tell TMZ that the victim is Sabrina Mercadel, who has worked for the company for over a decade. She was one of four people at Birdman’s house when Cole arrived. The singer saw the woman walk out of the bathroom and flew off the handle.

Jealous much?

The incident didn’t stop Cole from presenting at the 2014 BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta the next day. Birdman was there too. He performed with Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan.

Pregnant Alicia Keys bares bump for charity

Instagram

On Sunday, Grammy winner Alicia Keys posted an Instagram of her belly painted like a peace sign, all for the love of the “We Are Here” movement, a cause dedicated to social issues from gun control to gay rights.

“It’s you and me on a mission to create a kinder and more peaceful world,” she captioned the portrait. “The #WeAreHere Movement begins today.”

Keys announced plans for the movement at the UN Foundation’s Social Good Summit over the weekend.

“As I prepare to give birth to my new child, I can’t help but think what world I’m bringing the baby into,” she said. “We see the state of the world today and we can all feel the frustration and the desire to do something to make it better. We all want to do something but oftentimes we don’t feel empowered. That is why I created 'We Are Here.’ Because it’s not about me. It’s about we.”

She also donated $1 million to the cause. Keys is due in December, by the way.

Colin Farrell confirms he landed a role in 'True Detective'

Finally! After months of rumors, a True Detective lead at long last has been confirmed. Colin Farrell will star in the second season of Nic Pizzolatto’s HBO series, this time set in Los Angeles.

“I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited,” the Irish actor told the Sunday World.

And there you have it.

Now we only have three more parts to obsess over. Creator Pizzolatto told the Daily Beast that “there are four central roles” in Season 2, and word is the show will center around the “secret occult history of the transportation system” and involve a corrupt city businessman’s murder.

“Three police officials from different cities” come together to solve the case, Farrell revealed.

The pool of actors said to be in the running is comically large, though neither Friday Night Lights star Taylor Kitsch nor Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss have denied the rumors.

“It’s always flattering to be mentioned for a job,” Moss said.

According to Farrell, filming will start in the next few months. …
