Dwayne Johnson, Uncle DJ, is stoked, about everything, all the time, and his latest mission is meeting a ten-year-old fan right now immediately. The boy Jacob O’Connor saved his two-year-old brother from drowning by doing CPR which he learned from watching the Rock’s performance in San Andreas. So Johnson invited the fan to fly up to Vancouver to his movie set of Skyscraper, and it sounds like the thrill of a lifetime because the Rock gets free candy:

I wanna meet your little brother, I wanna meet your mom, and here’s the best part–when you come to my movie sets, it’s like Willy Wonka’s Chocolate factory dude, because you can eat all the sweets you want! And it’s all free!

Well, somebody’s paying for it, but you and Uncle DJ, we don’t pay for it.

I bet you guys anything he gives amazing piggyback rides.


Amber Rose keeps it real.

Taylor Swift can’t catch a break with the new song, which I am trying, so hard, to like. She is now accused of ripping off Beyoncé’s formation pose and plantation setting in her new video teaser, after Swift very kindly credited the “I’m Too Sexy” guys for sampling their beat. Beyoncé owns the V-formation shape, do not stand like this.


The whole video for “Look What You Made Me Do” premieres this evening at the VMAs, and TMZ reports that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are skipping, depriving us of cutaways. As we know, rumors have been flying around that Swift will finally make up with Katy Perry, but the VMAs producer says they’re empty promises. Between West and Perry, a combined decade of celebrity infighting is about the maximum lifespan we can be expected to care about stale beef. If this beef were a cat, it would be geriatric by now.
