Zac Efron Spotted on Set of New Film After Rough First Weekend for “We Are Your Friends”

Zac Efron On Set Of Neighbours 2 2Despite a rough opening weekend for “We Are Your Friends”, Zac Efron appeared focused and full of energy in Atlanta on the set of “Neighbors 2″. The original film, “Neighbors,” was arguably Zac’s greatest career success not related to the “High School Musical” franchise, making over $250 million worldwide at the box office. Some industry analysts speculate that “Neighbors 2″ might be expected to make even more with the right marketing budget and broader distribution, based on the success of the first movie. 

Zac’s latest film, “We Are Your Friends,” made history last weekend for being one of the worst performing wide release films ever by a major studio. Hopefully the “Neighbors” sequel – and other expected 2016 film releases “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” and “Dirty Grandpa” – can help Zac put the poor results of “We are Your Friends” quickly behind him.

New Footage Suggests Miley Cyrus and her Family Were Not Ready for the Nicki Minaj Confrontation

Nicki Minaj versus Miley CyrusMany have been asking the same question since Nicki Minaj called out Miley Cyrus at the VMAs. Was the onstage fight real?

Some think that it was all a pre-planned setup, because Nicki seemed to flash a little smile right after addressing Miley. Others, like us, have felt that Nicki’s smile was more likely in response to the audience’s reaction than to anything else.

Today, MTV released clips from secondary video feeds that show the instant reactions of both Miley and her family. To us, the feeds seem to suggest Nicki’s attack was very real and unscripted. In the first feed, when Nicki initially calls out Miley, it looks for a moment as if the VMAs host has been punched in the gut. And it appears that, as Miley quickly recovers her composure and begins to respond, Nicki can be seen mouthing the word “b*tch” again about her.

The second feed showing the Cyrus family also suggests that the confrontation was unplanned.  While it takes a few seconds for the camera to come across her family in the audience, when it does, the resulting video clip shows Miley’s entire clan looking surprised.

Watch the videos and judge for yourself. You can find MTV’s video of Miley’s initial reaction to Nicki’s confrontation here.  And you can find the Cyrus clan’s real-time reaction to the argument here.

With this new footage, do you think that the feud was real or staged? Do these new video feeds change your opinion about what happened at the event?

Demi Lovato Bounces Back from VMAs Performance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

Demi Lovato On Jimmy Kimmel 2Demi Lovato performed “Cool For The Summer” and “Neon Lights” before an energized crowd at last night’s taping of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” This came after an interview segment with Jimmy where Demi stepped back from the Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus feud, pretty much asked ‘WTF?’ about Kanye West’s VMAs speech, and basically said that Justin Bieber had finally succeeded in not flopping at an awards show!

The 23 year-old singer recovered from her awkward showing with Iggy Azalea at the VMAs and gave what seemed a less distracted performance.

See more pictures of Demi’s outfit and watch videos of her performance below.

Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin Say ‘Screw The VMAs’ and Go Shopping

Kylie Jenner And Hailey Baldwin 3BFFs Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin were spotted on the streets of New York City the past few days, and neither seemed too broken up about missing this year’s VMAs. Previous reports had suggested that Kendall at least had been extended an invitation by MTV to attend the awards event, but it was reported over the weekend by E! News that Kendall was spotted at LAX on Saturday leaving for NY while wearing a Yankees cap.

From the pics, seems like both girls are Yankees fans …

Rumors are that, along with many other top models, Kendall and Hailey may be in town not just to do a little shopping, but also for business meetings and fittings prior to the beginning of New York’s Fall fashion season next week at New York Fashion Week.

View some photos from their NYC adventures below.

Demi Lovato Breaks Down the Weirdness of the VMAs on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

Demi Lovato Jimmy Kimmel InterviewDemi Lovato taped “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” yesterday and recapped some of the weirdness of the 2015 VMAs. We know that she missed out on the Moon Man for the “Song of Summer” VMA that she so desperately seemed to want. Then came the disappointing performance with Iggy Azalea, which was one of the more cringeworthy moments of the show.

But some of her comments about the show itself as a viewer when she went back to her house to watch it on recording with Iggy were pretty interesting.

“All we did was we went back, we ate pizza and watched the VMAs back and it basically was like, ‘what the f**k happened?’”

Demi dodged any bullets by calling herself “Switzerland” with regard to the Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus feud. While she may not have had much to say about the feud, she went off when she was asked about Kanye’s rambling speech.

“We were like, what is he talking about? Honestly what is he talking about? You could tell like halfway through his edibles kicked in, or whatever he was smoking.”

She then went on to comment on Justin Bieber’s post-performance tears, explaining it was a bit of a personal triumph for him, at least as far as being accepted by a crowd at a big industry awards show.

“If you were Justin Bieber for that many years, you would maybe celebrate if people booed you for so long, and then they cheered. I would be happy.”

At the end of the interview Demi promoted her new album and spoke to how she likes to flaunt her new body.

“I’m really loving my body now, which is the first in like my whole life,” Demi said. Judging by her recent Skechers shoot, we can see Demi’s really embraced showing off her curves.

Watch the whole interview below.

Zac Efron Has a Really Bad Weekend as “We Are Your Friends” Makes History … and Not In a Good Way

Zac Efron's We Are Your Friends Movie Bombs In TheatersNo amount of pre-release marketing from Zac Efron could save his latest movie from completely tanking at the box office this weekend. Variety reports that Sony’s “We Are Your Friends” bombed badly since its release last Thursday against very little competition.

How badly exactly? Well, the movie made history as “one of the lowest wide-release debuts for a major studio.” The EDM-themed movie grossed only a little less than $1.8 million, which is $6.2 million less than its expected sales. With these type numbers, this movie is easily the worst wide-release launch in Zac’s already spotty film career.  In fact, industry website Box Office Mojo estimates that “We Are Your Friends” is the fourth worst performing widely-released film since 1982, the year when the current method of keeping statistics started.

With another box office flop on his hands – this time one of pretty epic proportions – we wouldn’t be surprised if we start hearing talk of Zac seriously considering participation in some new revival of the HSM franchise …
