Incriminating photos of Oscar de la Hoya…Chris Brown calls out Jay-Z…and the creator of Breaking Bad breathes a sigh of relief. Kellie Rasberry has the scoop in today’s Showbiz Top 5.
Tickets are on sale now for Drake’s North American tour, so hurry before — wait. What? Apparently there’s no need to rush down to the box office to buy tickets for Drake’s upcoming tour because ticket sales are so slow that he’s actually pushing back the start date to October 18. His “Would You Like a Tour” with Miguel as the opening act was supposed to start, like, now. But on Friday, it was announced Drake’s postponing the shows “due to an intense rehearsal schedule and technical production requirements that will be part of the show.” Um, sources are saying that’s not quite the case.
Somebody’s shopping around photos of Oscar de la Hoya in an apparent cocaine binge. The pictures reportedly were taken at a party in a Vegas hotel room and show Oscar snorting lines of some white substance off a table through a rolled up bill. The pictures reportedly were taken a few weeks before he announced he was back in rehab. It was apparently that night that Oscar realized just how reckless he had been and realized he needed to get help.
Was Adam Levine calling out Lady Gaga on Twitter? Or did his tweets hit so close to home that Gaga responded? And was her tweet even in response to Adam? We all have to do a lot of reading between the lines to make this a Twitter feud because neither one of them directly addressed the other. Adam threw the first slam on Friday, tweeting, “Ugh…recycling old art for a younger generation doesn’t make you an artist. It makes you an art teacher.” The next day, Gaga tweeted, “uh oh guys the art police is here.” Being cuffed by Adam Levine? Doesn’t sound like such a bad thing….
Chris Brown told “Jet” magazine that he doesn’t understand why the press won’t give him a break for beating up Rihanna while Jay Z “gets a pass” for stabbing someone. He said, “This is something I’ve been dealing with for the past maybe five years. Anybody with a voice — Tupac, Michael Jackson, the Notorious B.I.G. – gets formatted … except maybe for Jay Z, who is accepted by White America because he shakes hands and kisses babies. No disrespect, because I’m a fan, but nobody brings up the fact that he stabbed somebody and sold drugs. He gets a pass.” Chris goes on to compare himself to Trayvon Martin. And you can read all about it in the latest issue of “Jet,” which hits newsstands today.
When “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan accepted the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series and said, “Holy crap! Man, I did not see this coming,” he really meant it! Going into the evening, that may have not been the case. But after watching Aaron Paul lose Best Supporting Actor to Bobby Cannavale for “Boardwalk Empire” and Bryan Cranston losing Best Actor to Jeff Daniels for “The Newsroom,” Gilligan wasn’t feeling quite so confident when it came time for the biggest award of the night. Taking the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series was “Modern Family.”
