Hollywood will invade SXSW Film Festival… Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively’s baby name… Kanye West at the the Grammys… Iggy Azalea throws temper tantrum… and Bobbi Kristina was never married to Nick Gordon
Some of the biggest names in Hollywood will invade Austin, TX, March 13-21, for the SXSW Film Festival. This year, they’ve seen a record number of submissions — 7335 films!!! There will be 145 total features with 100 world premieres. The complete conference lineup and schedule comes out Feb. 17, but from what we know so far, Melissa McCarthy, Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, Judd Apatow, Ryan Gosling, Russell Brand, Al Pacino, Lena Dunham, Steve Carell and Amy Schumer are among the celebrities scheduled to attend.
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively had a baby back in December and sources were reporting that they had a little girl they named Violet. When a reporter for USA Today asked Ryan how little Violet is doing, Ryan said, “No, that’s not the name. I don’t want to get into that but I don’t know where that came from.” But he wouldn’t reveal the baby’s real name or even verify the baby’s sex, so we’re still left to wonder about that.
Kanye West had some sort of beef with the Grammys and has boycotted the show for the past six years. He actually won Grammys in 2010, 2012 and 2013, but was a no-show to claim his prizes. But that all changes this year when Kanye performs during the Grammys twice, including his collaboration with Paul McCartney and Rihanna on FourFiveSeconds. Kanye is also nominated for two Grammys this year — Best Rap Song and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration with Charlie Wilson for Bound 2.
Iggy Azalea may have be having a really bad day, but she didn’t have to take it out on everyone around her. At her recent performance at the Sundance Film Festival, a source told OK! Magazine that Iggy threw the sponsor of her event out of rehearsal, complained that her microphone was too hard to hold, criticized her backup crew for being sloppy, and yelled that she needed more space. But this was also the same week that pictures surfaced showing her live-in boyfriend Nick Young out partying with some woman at a club and going back to her house.
Bobby Brown’s lawyer has issued a statement saying that despite what we were led to believe, Bobbi Kristina was never married to Nick Gordon, as she claimed in a Twitter posting back in January of last year. At the time, she posted a picture of their hands and both were wearing wedding bands. She captioned it, “@nickgordon! #Happily Married SO #InLove. If you didn’t get it the first time that is.” They told TMZ that they were planning an official celebration in the coming months. But now Bobbi Kristina’s family is saying now that they were never legally married. In other news, at the request of her father, Bobbi Kristina has been moved to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.
