  • JENNETTE MCCURDY APPEARS TO DISS ARIANA GRANDE ON NEW WEB SERIES

  • Tue, 19 Aug 2014 01:00:00 EST

    Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande are no longer working together now that Sam & Cat has been axed but it appears Jennette may still have some beef with her former co-star. A character introduced on Jennette's new web series, What's Next For Sarah?, bears a striking resemblance to the pop star.

    The character, named "Gloriana", runs into McCurdy's character at a store wearing a floral dress with her long hair in a ponytail and a bow up top. Gloriana sits down at the table and babbles on about her idea for a new music video.

    • It is rumored that Nickelodeon canceled Sam & Cat because Jennette wanted to be paid the same as Ariana to continue on.

  • NINTENDO RESPONDS TO ROBIN WILLIAMS PETITION

  • Tue, 19 Aug 2014 01:00:00 EST

    Nintendo has issued a response to the viral petition urging them to base a character off of Robin Williams in one of their upcoming Legend of Zelda games. The Change.org petition garnered over 100,000 supporters before the company took notice on Saturday (August 16th.)

    A spokesperson told Polygon.com, "Robin Williams was loved at Nintendo. Our hearts go out to his entire family, and especially to Zelda Williams who we've worked with multiple times. We appreciate the outpouring of support from the gaming community, and hear the request of fans to honor him in a future game. We will not be discussing what might be possible for future games during this difficult time, but we will hold our memories of Robin close."

    • Robin's 25-year-old daughter, Zelda, was named for the princess who is at the center of the popular video games series.
    • She and her late father appeared in the ads for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DS remake.
    • Blizzard Entertainment, the company behind World of Warcraft, announced last week that they would be honoring Robin by creating a new character inspired by him and some of his roles.


  • JK ROWLING INTRODUCES NEW CHARACTER FROM 'HARRY POTTER' UNIVERSE

  • Tue, 19 Aug 2014 01:00:00 EST

    JK Rowling has expanded the Harry Potter universe once again. She wrote a new post on her Pottermore website further describing Celestina Warbeck -- a popular singer who had been mentioned casually throughout the book series.

    Rowling wrote, "Internationally-acclaimed singing sensation Celestina Warbeck (sometimes known as 'the Singing Sorceress') hails from Wales. Her father, a minor functionary in the Muggle Liaison Office, met her Muggle mother (a failed actress) when the latter was attacked by a Lethifold disguised as a stage curtain. Some of Celestina's best-known songs include 'You Charmed the Heart Right Out of Me' and 'A Cauldron Full of Hot, Strong Love'. Her fans are usually older people who love her grandstanding style and powerful voice. The late 20th-century album You Stole My Cauldron but You Can't Have My Heart was a massive global hit."

    • The author goes on to describe Celestina saying, "Although we never lay eyes on Celestina during the whole seven volumes of the Potter books, I always imagined her to resemble Shirley Bassey in both looks and style. Three devoted fans were involved in a nasty three-broom pile up over Liverpool while trying to reach the last night of her Flighty Aphrodite tour, and her tickets often appear on the black market at vastly inflated prices (one reason why Molly Weasley has never yet seen her favorite singer live)."
    • The character is the star of her own stage show in Universal's Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

    TLC WANTS MORE FROM KATE GOSSELIN: Kate Gosselin and her family are sticking around TLC. The network has ordered most specials following the mom and her eight children.

    'DORA THE EXPLORER' GROWS UP: Nickelodeon is spinning off Dora the Explorer and making the seven-year-old a bit more grown up. Dora and Friends: Into the City premiered on Monday night (August 18th) and features a more mature Dora and her human pals. The network's executive vice president of preschool programming, Teri Weiss, said in a statement, "Aging-up a cartoon, especially one kids are so protective of, is not something you can necessarily do with every series. I think that because she has a continuous appeal to new generations of Dora fans, it seemed like the type of property that if we were going to do this sort of extension, this sort of growing-up move, it would be the one to go with. In some ways, that protectiveness is our safety net."
