Snoop Dogg has left fans baffled after taking on the character of a bespectacled white guy for a series of Instagram.com videos.
The rapper donned whiteface make-up, nerdy glasses and a wig to promote a non-existent dating site for men, called WhiteGuysConnect.com. As Todd, the Drop It Like It's Hot hitmaker boasts he likes to "paintball, crochet and do a little spoken word in my free time", and adds, "My bros (sic) want me to tell you about this new website, WhiteGuysConnect, where white guys look for fly single females to have a good time. Give us a call."
It is not clear what the rap icon is hoping to achieve as his alter-ego or whether the videos are just an end-of-the-summer prank.
R&B star Chris Brown's day in court to answer assault charges has been delayed again after travel issues prevented the singer from making it to Washington, D.C.
The Kiss Kiss hitmaker was due to appear in court on Friday (29Aug14) for what would have been the third attempt to resolve an assault case dating back to October, 2013. But, according to court filings, Brown was unable to make it to the hearing and it was rescheduled for Tuesday (02Sep14).
The singer and his bodyguard were charged with beating up a young man outside a Washington, D.C. hotel. The minder, Christopher Hollosy, was convicted earlier this year (14), while Brown has rejected plea deals in relation to the case.
At the time of the incident, Brown was on probation in California for the 2009 assault of his then-girlfriend Rihanna.
Actress Katie Holmes is breathing a sigh of relief after her daughter Suri Cruise's lost dog was found alive and well.
Chihuahua Honey went missing during a visit to a friend's house in Benedict Canyon, near Beverly Hills, California last weekend (23-24Aug14), just weeks after Holmes adopted her.
The worried Batman Begins star plastered posters around the neighbourhood alerting locals to the dog's disappearance and even offered up a $1,000 (£588) reward for the pet's safe return, but the search was called off on Wednesday (27Aug14) after officials at the Lucky Puppy Rescue organization located the pooch not far from where she disappeared.
Suri's furry friend was subsequently checked out by a vet and given the all-clear to return home, reports TMZ.com. Suri, eight, is Holmes' daughter from her marriage to Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise.
Singer/actor Donnie Wahlberg and his fiancee Jenny Mccarthy will end the summer (14) in style by becoming husband and wife this weekend (30-31Aug14), according to reports.
Sources claim the New Kids On The Block star will exchange vows with model-turned-TV personality McCarthy in New York on Saturday (30Aug14), just four months after announcing their engagement. The couple initially met in March, 2013 when Wahlberg featured as a guest on her short-lived late night programme, The Jenny McCarthy Show, but it wasn't until U.S. TV presenter Andy Cohen brought them together on his show Watch What Happens Live last summer (13) that they started dating.
The bride-to-be previously revealed she wanted Cohen to officiate the pair's nuptials.
The wedding will be the second for both stars - Wahlberg has two sons from his nine-year marriage to Kim Fey, which ended in divorce in 2008, and McCarthy shares a son, Evan, with her ex John Asher. They divorced in 2005. In between marriages, she has dated Jim Carrey and football star Brian Urlacher, among others.
One Direction have become the first act to break through the $200 million (£118 million) mark for concert ticket sales this year (14).
The boy band's Where We Are world tour tops Billboard's Hot Tours list thanks to $130 million (£76 million) in revenue from a 10-week summer trek in Europe and North America. Ticket sales from the 2014 tour now total $230 million (£135 million) from more than 53 sold out concerts in six countries.
The Best Song Ever hitmakers will add millions more to that tally when they perform three sold out shows at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California beginning on 11 September (14).
The tour is set to wrap in Miami, Florida at the beginning of October (14).
Pop star Adam Levine is planning a huge family with his new wife, model Behati Prinsloo.
“We’re definitely going to do it. I want to have 100 kids. I want to have more kids than would be socially responsible. I don’t know when we’re going to do it. We can’t do it right now (but) I think it’s absolutely in the works for some future date.”
The Emmys just took place a few days ago but most of TV's biggest shows don't have time to waste celebrating (or sobbing). Here's a look at where two of the Emmys' most nominated shows are filming right now.
The Good Wife
Julianna Margulies was one of Monday's big winners for lead actress in a drama but she didn't have long to celebrate before she was needed back on the set of The Good Wife. Today Julianna and company are filming on location at 46th St and 5th Ave in New York City.
Orange Is the New Black
Orange Is The New Black walked away with a win for Uzo Aduba (Crazy Eyes) in the Guest Actress Category but it lost Best Comedy series to five-time winner Modern Family. The loss is largely attributed to its placement in the comedy category raising the argument that a new dramedy-esque category needs to be created for the Emmys.
The loss certainly isn't slowing the show down. You can catch them shooting today around around Blue Hill Plaza and Veterans Memorial Dr, Pearl River, NY.

Singer/rapper Cee Lo Green has been handed three years of probation and a community service sentence after striking a plea deal relating to an ecstasy charge.
The Forget You hitmaker, real name Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, hit headlines last year (13) after an ex-girlfriend accused him of slipping her ecstasy before having sex with her following a dinner date in Los Angeles in 2012. He pleaded not guilty to the claim at the time of his booking, but subsequently agreed to plead no contest to a felony count of sharing ecstasy in a deal which allows him to maintain his innocence.
He entered the plea during a brief court hearing on Friday (29Aug14), when Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mark Young ordered the star to serve probation.
The 39 year old must also complete 360 hours of community work at the MusiCares Foundation of the Recording Academy, which provides financial aid and medical care to musicians who have fallen on hard times. He must also attend 52 private alcohol counselling sessions, reports TMZ.com.
Prosecutors had previously dropped a charge of sexual assault against Green on the grounds of insufficient evidence. The plaintiff, whose identity has not been revealed, alleged Green spiked her drink during a date in November, 2012, and she later woke up naked in a bed with him in the room.
Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul caused mayhem as he prepared for his historic night at the Emmy Awards on Monday (25Aug14) by staging a Twitter scavenger hunt all over Los Angeles for fans of the show. The actor found keepsakes in a closet and decided to part with them by sharing them among savvy fans - but he had no idea so many people would be interested in his character's license plate, plants, props and scripts from the show.
He explains, "The first clue was: 'Go find R.J. Mitte, aka Walt, Jr., at the IHop (restaurant) in West Hollywood. He'll be eating breakfast and he'll have some signed scripts for you'.
"Literally within 60 seconds, the IHop is just bombarded with just crazy fans and causes so much traffic."
Fans were so keen to get their hands on Paul's random stuff from the show, some were caught cheating.
He explains, "These ladies were camped outside my house and I pulled out and... they kept following me. I walked directly up to their, I took a picture of them and said, 'Shame on you, shame on you! You cannot cheat! You don't win anything!'"
Paul showed off photos from the scavenger hunt during an appearance on chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday (28Aug14), and one featured himself on a park swing, dressed as his Breaking Bad character Jesse Pinkman.
He explained, "This is me in a West Hollywood park. I said, 'Tag, you're it,' on Twitter. 'The first person to tag me in the West Hollywood park (will win the suit I was wearing)'... and I signed it on the back, 'Ya b**ch, Aaron Paul'."
The actor made it extra difficult because when fans arrived at the park, he started running away from them.
Soccer ace David Beckham escaped unscathed after losing control of his motorcycle in Los Angeles on Thursday (28Aug14).

The red-faced sports star and model had to recruit pals from the tattoo parlour to help him wheel the motorbike back to the store, according to TMZ.com.
