    By: Loretta Donelan Jan 07, 2014
    Cindy Ord/Getty Here are some of this week's highlights from Flavorwire, VH1, Celebuzz, and Hollywood.com. Siri knows about Her. If you ask your iPhone about the new Spike Jonze movie about a Siri-like artificial intelligence, the real Siri has some choice words about her portrayal. Read what they are at Flavorwire.  Leo DiCaprio thinks The Wolf of Wall Street is a lot better than critics are saying. He thinks it's groundbreaking, and he has a lot more to dish about the film. Check out highlights from his interview about the movie, including a weird story about K-Y Jelly, at Celebuzz. Find out the ridiculous pseudonyms celebrities use at hotels. You will really never guess who goes by "Chuck Steak." Or "Chandler Bing," for that matter. Find out which celebrities use these names, as well as some other great fake monikers, at VH1 Celebrity.  What happened to Johnny Depp? Hollywood.com ponders that very question. Can't we just pretend that The Lone Ranger didn't happen?

  • Diddy: Our Favorite Selfies
    By: Loretta Donelan Jan 04, 2014
    Instagram Diddy is a surprisingly frequent Instagram user–the rapper has over 2,000 posts. Thought many of the images are what you'd expect–glitzy photos with celebrities and a lot of advertisements for Ciroc vodka–there are a lot of sweeter photos on there as well. Puff Daddy posts enough inspirational quotes to rival a college freshman's Pinterest. Most adorably, though, he has a lot of pictures with his cute daughters. Here are the highlights from his many selfies, from the glamorous to the oh so sweet. GALLERY: Our Fave Diddy Selfies Follow @Hollywood_com //
  • Joel McHale on Community's Return, Dan Harmon, and Bourbon
    By: Loretta Donelan Jan 03, 2014
    Mike Coppola/Getty Guys, Community is back. To get everyone pumped for the beginning of season five, Joel McHale, who plays Jeff on the show, answered some questions on Reddit. Here are some highlights from the AMA.  His favorite songs used on Community: "Roxanne, Waterloo..." On his strangest interactions with fans: "The ones that want me to sign their genitals always get a bit awkward." On Community creator Dan Harmon's return to the show: "Having Dan back is the same feeling you get from a Nestea plunge (absolute relief and delicious refreshment)""This is going to be a long answer. Dan was the only way I believe we would get to a 6th season since the show is in his head. Like J.R.R. Tolkien had Middle Earth in his. And I have to thank NBC and Sony for being open and willing to bring him back. And I'm as excited as a little schoolgirl." On backlash from celebrities about coverage on The Soup: "There was a time years ago when I don't think Tyra Banks was very happy about what we said about her show. But I've met her since and she was very cool." Whether it's difficult to spend enough time with his wife: "Wow, that's a thoughtful question. Yes. Because of my schedule, it's hard to be around as much as I want. But believe me, there are way more other people with bigger time constraints than I have. My number 1 goal is to spend as much time with my wife and kids as possible. That, and playing Call of Duty." Movies he's working on: "Adam Sandler's Blended, Deliver Us From Evil (out on July 2), A Friggin' Christmas Miracle with Robin Williams, and some low budget softcore stuff ...Wait! Adam Sandler's Blended is now called The Familymoon." On the scar on his eyebrow: "I fell when I was 6 during a power outage into the corner of a brick fireplace. Yup! I'm coordinated." His favorite kind of soup: "I've never been asked this. I'll have to think about it." On the missing Community characters: "We will miss Donald dearly. And Chevy left midseason last year and I wish him the best." His favorite guest stars on the upcoming season: "It's impossible for me to pick a favorite because all these people came in like designated hitters and hit grand slams. I will say this: it was hard for me to not break into laughter watching Mitch Hurwitz work." His favorite episode of Community: "I really couldn't say. That's like picking my favorite bourbon." Annie or Britta? "Both." On his hair: "It's a mixture of incredibly good lighting, precise messiness arranging, and diesel fuel." On Donald Glover's new Childish Gambino album: "I have heard it. I think it's terrific. And I want my shirt back from the album cover." On Abed (Danny Pudi): "With Troy leaving (Donald), it gives a ton for the incredible, amazing Danny Pudi (Abed) to deal with. Danny should have been nominated for 10 Emmys already." The craziest thing to happen to him: "Finding $20 in an old pair of slacks." Follow @Hollywood_com //
