Prominent Twitter user Amanda Bynes was photographed yesterday in Manhattan carrying what can only be described as an adorably tiny dog. She also wore a leather jacket, an American flag t-shirt and her signature blonde wig as she did some shopping, and appeared to be pretty chipper for someone who has been all over the news lately.
A quick glance at her Twitter, though, and things get a little confusing. She claimed earlier today that a photo taken of her wasn’t actually her, without specifying the actual photo; but in the message prior, she re-tweeted a tweet of this exact photo from a fan. So …
How ’bout that SCOTUS ruling today, huh?

For those of you who watched Insidious (I did, but with a comforter over my head just in case), the sequel promises to be just as pee-your-pants scary.
Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne reprise their roles as Josh and Renai Lambert in Insidious: Chapter 2, which finds their family plagued by the same spirit problems they thought they’d gotten rid of. Tiny Tim’s “Tiptoe Through The Tulips” makes its eery return in the trailer, accompanied now by “Row Your Boat.”
What next? ”It’s A Small World?”
Insidious: Chapter 2 opens in theaters September 13th.

New baby. New album. New number one album.
The rapper's sixth solo studio album, which has yet to release an official first single, beat out three other newcomers of the week: J. Cole's Born Sinner (297,000), Mac Miller's Watching Movies With the Sound Off (102,000) and Kelly Rowland's fourth studio release Talk a Good Game (68,000).
Still, Yeezus' debut holds the title for the year's third best week in sales, behind Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience (968,000) and Daft Punk's Random Access Memories (339,000).
Whether it was the leak or the current state of the music industry (or the beastly powers of JT and Daft Punk), West's latest performance on the charts is also a far cry from his masterpiece in 2010. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, which sold some 496,000 copies in its first week, went on to sell some 1.3 million units in the U.S. alone.
Next up for summer music releases: Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail, which will officially drop on July 7 — three days after some one million Samsung customers will have a first listen through an app. (But Billboard won't be counting those early numbers).

Another blow to the crumbling empire of Paula Deen, Caesars Entertainment Corporation announced Wednesday that it is severing all ties with the celebrity chef. Caesars will close its Deen-themed restaurants at casinos in Mississippi, Illinois, North Carolina and Indiana.
“While we appreciate Paula’s sincere apologies for statements she made in her past … we have mutually decided that it is in the best interests of both parties to part ways at this time,” Caesars Entertainment executive vice president of communications and government affairs Jan Jones Blackhurst told Celebuzz.
Caesars is now the third company to drop Deen who admit last week to using racial slurs, including the n-word, in the past. Previously Smithfield Foods and the Food Network both ended their relationships with Deen. Walmart and Kmart — which both carry Deen-branded goods — have not announced whether or not they’ll continue to do so. QVC, on the other hand, has said it is “reviewing” its business relationship with Deen.
Deen herself appeared on TODAY Wednesday morning to address the controversy.

Hollywood’s fiery-coiffed golden girl Jessica Chastain is banking her on-screen success by putting it into her real estate future, plunking down $1.395 million on a new place to call home in New York City’s trendy Greenwich Village.
The Oscar-nominated actress signed on the dotted line for the completely remodeled 2-bedroom, 2-bath loft duplex in September 2012, Celebuzz has learned, and for all that hard-earned ca$h she got a super stylish loft in the Big Apple.
The new face of YSL fragrances purchased the impressive space with a custom built winding wood staircase and plenty of sunlight shining in from the skylight above.
Impeccably renovated to fit Chastain’s cool style, the Zero Dark Thirty stunner’s sleek, simple and serene abode features a large chef’s kitchen with (and super convenient bonus) washer/dryer, and Viking and Sub Zero appliances. The spacious living room has vaulted ceilings, three huge windows, wood burning fireplace for those cold NYC nights in, separate open dining area, and (a Manhattan must-have) plenty of closet space.
Even the building has A-list perks like a 24-hour doorman, bike room, roof deck and courtyard.
Take a tour of Chastain’s new NYC loft in the CB! Gallery above.

Love is all around.
After the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act Wednesday morning, allowing gay marriage to resume in the state of California, Veronica Mars actress and longtime sloth enthusiast Kristen Bell announced she was finally ready to marry fiance Dax Shepard.
The couple, who first got engaged in 2009 after two years of dating, had previously vowed to wait until their gay friends could marry.
“@daxshepard1 will you marry me? Xo #marriageequality #loveislove,” Bell, 32, tweeted to her 38-year-old beau following the ruling.
Earlier this year, the duo welcomed a daughter named Lincoln.
"We've been very vocal about not wanting to be married in a state that doesn't allow that right to all of its citizens," Bell told Celebuzz last August regarding her decision to wait for marriage. “We'll wait until California gets on the right side of history.”
Well, she better start planning for her nuptials now.

Is Britney Spears‘ untitled project the 2013 album you’re anticipating most? Let us know by voting below. Return each day this week for a new feature on one of our most anticipated albums. Last week, Eminem won the title of Most Anticipated Male Album. This week’s winner will face off against Eminem next week.
Vote now for your most anticipated female album of 2013. After the poll, read on to find out why we can’t wait for Britney, the Princess of Pop, to return and slay our lives later this year.
Here Are Our Five Reasons Why Britney’s Eighth Album Will Be The Greatest of the Year
Now, we've covered Beyoncé and touched on Lady Gaga… But there's a lil’ special someone who takes the cake when it comes to pop divas. So step aside Pop Princess wannabes, because today IT’S BRITNEY, B#%$&. You already crowned Britney a a champion not once, but twice, and we’re counting on you to do it yet again. The true Princess will give unto us, later this year, her eighth studio album. Here are five reasons why that’s the best thing.
1) She's the original Princess of Pop. Maybe Madonna‘s not ready to give up her Queen’s crown, but Britney was the first real pop sensation to blow up — and remain relevant — since Madge’s reign. Lezzbehonest: every girl wanted to be Britney (or be on her). Many still do. Not to mention, Brit’s … Baby One More Time still holds the title of "best-selling album by a teenage solo artist” 14 years later. 14 years?! That’s longer than most Justin Bieber fans have been alive! When the Princess releases an album, it’s a guaranteed event. The clubs will go crazy, as will the radio. Prepare yourselves, haters. You’ll be hearing a lot of Britney soon.
2) She's released seven albums, six of which topped the charts at No. 1. Every one of Britney's albums with the exception of Blackout (which did not claim the top spot due to a last minute Billboard rule change…) has been a major, multiplatinum, #1 success. From … Baby One More Time to Femme Fatale, she's always surpassed our expectations and made a splash. It’s pretty much guaranteed that Brit-Brit will see more No. 1s in her future, as both the new album’s lead single and the album itself will likely skyrocket to the top of the charts, thanks to her dedicated fans and an audience of millions who can never seem to get enough. More hits, more hits-tory being made. Your favs will never, and you will deal.
3) She beat Taylor Swift. T. Swift may hold the hearts of tweens and teens today, but B. Spears stills holds the crown for most albums sold in the first week of release. Oops… I Did It Again sold 1.3 million copies in its first week, while Swift's Red only sold 1.2 million. Sorry, Taylor but… #YouCantSitWithUs! It also goes to show that, even 15 years into her career, Britney remains as relevant as ever. Others may come and go, titles may be contested… but at the end of the day, the proof is in the pudding, and that pudding is rich in vitamin Britney. Our Princess will hammer this point home with the release of yet another smash.
4) She always collabs with awesome artists on awesome songs. For example, remember when hopped on Rihanna‘s “S&M” for a fun-’n'-raunchy remix? And how about her latest collab with will.i.am, ”Scream and Shout” (a song we can’t get out of our heads once we hear it)? Of course, she also worked with Madonna on “Me Against the Music” (and then, in perhaps the most infamous moment in VMA history, made out with the Queen on stage). Who will make an appearance on album eight? Well, will.i.am is confirmed as executive producer, but perhaps even more exciting than that is that William Orbit, the man who produced Madonna’s Ray of Light, is also involved! YES, BRITNEY, GIVE US YOUR RAY OF LIGHT ERA! TAKE US TO CHURCH!
5) Many big Britney things are in store. For instance, to tide us over, Britney released a new song, “Ooh La La.” New music?! How novel! Take note, Beyoncé and Gaga!
Britney is also heading to Vegas for a residency, so get ready for her sure-to-be-spectacular live show to cause a ruckus (and make her a lot of money). So, we’ve got sountrack tunes, epic residencies, and a new album? It’s a good time to be a Britney fan. Then again, when is it not?
Oh, and P.S.
Don’t forget to vote for your most anticipated female album above. Return each day this week for a feature on each of the participating albums!

This morning, the Supreme Court issued its rulings on the cases of United States v. Windsor and Hollingworth v. Perry. The first challenged the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act and the second challenged the constitutionality of California’s Proposition 8. Basically, it was a high stakes day for the LGBTQ community. To work through my mixed feelings about the Court’s rulings, I enlisted the help of the greatest means of expression known to Man: the Beyoncé GIF.
Getting ready for work, I knew that the Supreme Court would be issuing its rulings, but I didn’t know how the Court was going to rule, so I was like:
Then the Court announced it had ruled the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional. So I celebrated:
What a great day for civil rights.
Then I had to wait again for the Court’s decision on Prop 8, and I got impatient.
There was no broad ruling which legalized same-sex marriage, which means the Court sort of dropped the ball:
But at least California can start performing same-sex marriages again.
All-in-all, I’m feeling pretty good about today.
Which means it’s time to party.

Justin Bieber’s ex-monkey Mally emerged from quarantine on Wednesday as he was transferred to his new location at the Serengeti Park in Hodenhagen, Germany.
The Associated Press says that Mally, who was seized by German customs on March 28 after Bieber failed to cough up the proper care-taking documents at Munich Airport (think Not Without My Daughter meets Sophie’s Choice), will soon be introduced to the zoo’s other capuchin monkeys, where he will presumably share stories from his brief brush with fame. (“He’s really not that short!” Mally will say.)
In fact, the zoo’s manager, the non-German-sounding Fabrizio Sepe, says that Mally is already fitting in quite well.
“Mally is a clever little guy and we’re confident that he will settle in quickly,” Sepe said Wednesday.
Beiber, meanwhile, is hooking up with a married woman.

My mama always said, “Life is like a box of chocolates: you should be careful what you say to people, because you never know who will get angry and attack you on the hood of a car.” My mama wasn’t very good at sayings. Yet, that one always stuck with me.
That advice could have served Taylor Lautner well. Never mind that his photo is taken from the set of his new movie, Tracers. It’s more fun to think that someone actually jumped him. You know, because of Twilight. Or the fact that le looks a lot like an alpaca. So many possible reasons. #DownWithAlpacaAbuse!
Some more great life advice, not from my mother, is to read today’s winning captions:
“You’re not in Forks anymore” – Jenn
“Why did you let edward get bella!? What is wrong with you!?” – Andrea
“Do NOT take your shirt off!” – Letty
“So you think that because you’ve grown facial hair that it makes you a man!!!!” – Rachel
“Taylor swift finally gets her revenge” – Liam
“No I swear they made me make those crappy movies!!” – William
Congrats to our winners! Visit our Facebook page for a new Caption Contest each and every weekday.

Cyrus, 20, sang “We Can’t Stop,” better known as “That Song That Isn’t As Good As ‘Party In the USA,’ But Is Still Kind Of Catchy, Anyway — Sort Of,” with will.i.am. It was weird.
But not as weird as her outfit and subsequent wardrobe change, which involved a feathered skirt of sorts. Or whatever you want to call it. I can’t figure her out anymore — especially with her telling Jimmy Kimmel that she’s always high. Classy.
See it for yourself in the gallery, above.

The Supreme Court has finally announced its long-awaited decision on the case of United States v. Windsor which challenged the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act. In a 5-4 decision written by Justice Anthony Kennedy, the court ruled that DOMA is unconstitutional, on the grounds that the law which prevents the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages violates the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution.
DOMA was signed into law in 1996 by President Bill Clinton. President Barack Obama — the first president to vocally support legalizing same-sex marriage — does not support the law, and had previously instructed the Justice Department to stop defending lawsuits challenging DOMA’s constitutionality.
UPDATE: The Supreme Court has also issued its ruling on Hollingsworth v. Perry which challenged the constitutionality of California’s Proposition 8, a voter-approved measure which defined marriage in the state as between one man and one woman. Same sex marriage had previously been legalized in the state by its legislature.
The majority decision, written by Chief Justice John Roberts, ruled that Dennis Hollingworth — a private citizen who had stepped forward to defend Proposition 8 — had no legal standing to be in court to defend the law. This essentially vacates the Ninth Circuit’s ruling on the law and paves the way for California to resume marrying same sex couples. In ruling this way, the Court declined to make a broad ruling on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage nationwide.

Many Saturday Night Live sketches never make it all the way to the broadcast we all see. This one, called “Song for Daddy,” was one of them. Written for the episode this season hosted by Justin Bieber, the sketch features Bieber, Bill Hader, Fred Armisen and Bobby Moynihan as a country-western band with a very bizarre song. Plagued with problems, the sketch was cut after dress rehearsal and never made it on-air.
Now, we’re getting to see it with commentary from the sketch’s writers who call it “the greatest trainwreck ever.” Highlights include a wall almost falling on Bieber and an overly obedient studio audience. Enjoy!

After bailing on Matt Lauer last Friday, Paula Deen appeared on the TODAY show this morning to address allegations that she had used racial slurs in her past. The interview, which lasted over 13 minutes, can only be described as tense, emotional and, well, not very fun to watch.
Right from the get-go, it was clear that Lauer wasn’t going to let Deen take control of his interview. (Since she canceled on him once already, let’s call it his.)
Instead of letting Deen defend herself with what sounded like pre-rehearsed rhetoric (“I believe that every creature on this Earth, every one of God’s creatures, was created equal,” she said at the top of the interview), Lauer demanded answers about her lost and pending endorsement deals with the Food Network, Smithfield Ham and QVC. Deen looked uncomfortable and surprised by Lauer’s persistence, and struggled to respond to his hard-hitting questions like a spoon trying to mix its way through a sticky bowl of Deen’s favorite ingredient, butter.
And then the tears came, and it got awkward. Deen started rambling about having to console her own friends because they were crying over remarks from the press, how she’s received “wonderful” support from Rev. [Jesse] Jackson and a whole bunch of other things. She even said, “I is what I is” at one point, and then it was time to turn the whole thing off.
You can watch the full interview for yourself in the video, above.

Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman are officially confirmed for the Independence Day sequel that’s slated for a July, 2015 release.
According to ETOnline, director Roland Emmerich revealed that the actors were on board for the upcoming action flick at a Q&A about White House Down that took place at a New York City Apple Store.
Though we won’t see Will punching out aliens exclaiming “welcome to earth” any time soon, we are looking forward to the return of Pullman and Goldblum.
Pullman played heroic President Thomas J. Whitmore in the 1996 original, and famously delivered the “we will not go quietly into the night!” speech.
If you don’t know, now ya know.
Goldblum portrayed wisecracking computer whiz David Levinson.
“We’re not doing a total reboot, we’re doing something that’s totally unusual,” Emmerich also told Complex. “I think some aliens will be back.”
We’re looking to more Independence Day 2 casting news as it continues to roll in.
Your move, Mae Whitman.

She’s not “Lost In Translation” anymore.
Scarlett Johansson is ringing in Vanity Fair‘s inaugural French issue, gracing the cover of the July issue in monochromatic style.
The magazine, which makes its debut on newstands Wednesday, features a profile of the American actress by Ingrid Sischy with photographs by Mark Seliger.
"She has every quality imaginable — the elegance, beauty, wit and impertinence that would make her a perfectly decent Parisian if she decides to move permanently into the apartment she has bought in Paris not far from here," Michel Denisot, Vanity Fair France‘s editorial director, said of Johansson.
But this cover isn’t the only French connection ScarJo (yes, we’re still doing that so deal with it) has.
The 28-year-old actress’ boyfriend, creative agency manager Romain Dauriac, is also French. The couple started dating last October and Johansson is currently splitting her time between the States and France.

Twenty-two-year-old waitress Jordan Ozuna may be Justin Bieber’s rumored new girl — but she still has a few old skeletons hanging in her closet. Like, you know, a marriage.
“She’s still married,” Jordan’s estranged mother-in-law Kim Ozuna revealed exclusively to Celebuzz on Tuesday.
Jordan, who on June 16 was spotted kissing and canoodling with Bieber at Las Vegas Indoor Skydiving by E! News, married Kim’s son Daniel “right out of high school,” Kim said.
But like so many young lovebirds, the marriage didn’t last more than a couple of years.
“They’ve been separated a good year,” she said. “They were very young when they got married … They'll figure it out on their own.”
“They're probably in the process of getting divorced.”
Kim admitted she hasn’t spoken to Jordan (whose maiden name is Galipo) in over a year. However, she did say that Jordan has been in Las Vegas “for some time” to pursue a career in front of the camera.
“She was getting into the modeling business. She had worked at Hooters and done a couple commercials,” she said.
She also wasn’t sure if Daniel even knew about Jordan’s rumored fling with Bieber because Daniel is currently serving in the Coast Guard.
But despite the lack of communication, Jordan’s rumored romance with Bieber didn’t exactly shock Kim.
“I’m not surprised,” she said.
