MTV Announces Performers at VMAs!

MTV announced the performers we’ll be able to watch at the upcoming Video Music Awards!  Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes, Lorde, Miley Cyrus, The Weeknd, and Fifth Harmony will perform live on August 27th!  Katy Perry is hosting the show.

Taylor Swift did show up in a Denver courtroom yesterday as jury selection began in her groping case.  A former radio DJ sued her, claiming he lost his job after she accused him of groping her.  Taylor countersued for assault.  Potential jurors were asked if they listened to or purchased Taylor Swift’s music or read any news reporting about her in the past two years.  Unsurprisingly, no jurors have been selected yet.

Rihanna went home to Barbados for their annual Crop Over Festival sporting turquoise hair and a fabulous outfit!  Ornamented bikinis are standard attire for the carnival and parade.

Amy Schumer will make her Broadway debut this November in Steve Martin’s new comedy, “Meteor Shower.”  Previews for the play begin November 1st at the Booth Theater, with opening night set for November 29th.

Hackers using the name 'Mr. Smith' posted a fresh cache of stolen HBO files online Monday, demanding millions of dollars in ransom from the network to prevent further releases.  The data dump included what appear to be scripts from five Game of Thrones episodes.  HBO said it is working with police and cybersecurity experts to investigate.

“Real Housewives of Orange County” star Tamra Barney had revealed during season ten’s reunion that she hadn’t seen her daughter, Sidney, in two years.  The 18 year old has been living with Barney’s ex-husband, Simon.  Recently, Tamra spoke about how she believes her relationship with Sydney is on the mend, especially because of recent photos of them together at Sydney’s high school graduation.  But Sydney took to Facebook explaining that’s not the case.  She said her father forced her to allow Tamra come because it was a milestone, and also claimed Tamra is “toxic” and would abandon her.
