Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Kicks Ass as Barak Obama’s Alter Ego on SNL

The Rock returned to host Saturday Night Live last night to reprise his role as Rock Obama, the hulk-esque alter ego of President Barak Obama.

When the President loses his temper in a meeting with his House Speaker John Boenher (Taran Killam) and Texas Senator and 2016 presidential candidate Ted Cruz (Bobby Moynihan) who are distinctly ruing the government, he transforms into Rock Obama for some good ass kicking. The “She Rock Obama” also makes her first debut appearance to help rip some limbs off. Watch it above.

Angeline Jolie Makes First Post-Surgery Appearance and Delivers Inspiring Speech

angelina-jolie

After days of opening up about her cancer prevention surgery, Angelina Jolie made her first big public appearance post-surgery during a fun Saturday night at the Kids’ Choice Awards with her daughters Shiloh and Zahara.

The Maleficent actress gave a powerful speech about being different during the show after winning Best Villain. “I wanna say that when I was little, like Maleficent, I was told that I was different,” she shared. “Never good at fitting in, and then I realized something, something I hope you all realize — different is good.” And of course, she ended the inspiring speech in true villainous style “And as your villain, I would tell you to cause a little trouble. It’s good for you.” She definitely knows how to stir up a little trouble, remember her PDA session with Brad Pitt at their kids soccer game? She’s the best.

They’ve graced red carpets, have endless stamps in their passports, and they haven’t even reached double digits. Celebrity kids draw lots of attention when spotted with their superstar parents. And since kids tend to be brutally honest, we get the pleasure of catching them curving the paparazzi in the most hilarious ways.These celebrity tots are still mastering their ABCs, but already know how to throw advanced level shade and deliver the meanest side eye to the paps when they just don’t feel like being bothered. While we’re cooing over their undeniable cuteness, take notes on how the best celebrity kid side-eyes.

In addition to throwing major side eye, North West travels like a boss.

Karrueche Tran Admits She Still Loves Chris Brown on ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life’

fix my life

Chris Brown’s ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran sat down with Iyanla Vanzant for an exclusive interview on OWN’s Iyanla: Fix My Life Saturday night to discuss everything from Brown’s betrayal to her career aspirations. But let’s be real. We all wanted to know one thing: What the hell was she thinking going back to Breezy after he lied, cheated on her, and fathered a baby with another woman? Vanzant asked all the hard questions, and the hour certainly didn’t disappoint.

If you don’t know the Tran/Brown saga, here are the CliffsNotes. Tran met Brown at a styling gig two years ago and after a few dates — including a 2:30 AM diner run — they became an item. But it didn’t take long for Brown’s shady ways to take over. On Christmas 2012, Tran was at Brown’s house when he mysteriously left. Turns out, he went to a basketball game with his ex-girlfriend Rihanna behind Tran’s back. This led to more lies, deceit, and trolls calling Tran out on social media for not dumping Brown. Things hit a fever pitch a few weeks ago when news broke Brown had a child with a woman who isn’t Tran. The couple has since parted ways, but Tran is tired of keeping quiet. Sitting uncomfortably close to Vanzant — we thought she was going to shake her — Tran candidly talked about her relationship with Brown. Here are the highlights.

Vanzant is not here for Tran’s excuses.
Throughout the interview, Tran played the, “I’m human. I make mistakes” card. However, Vanzant did not see this as a viable excuse for Tran’s behavior. She was quick to point out that Tran made classic mistakes all women make in relationships, like expecting a guy to treat her differently over other girls and focusing on his issues instead of her own. It seems like the message got through to Tran because she admitted, “I will never again let a man disrespect me.”  She also said, “The mistakes I know I’ve made are not having a voice.” Damn straight, K.

Tran wants us to think Brown is a good person, despite his fuckery.
Even though he is an epic douchebag, Tran emphasized that Brown isn’t as bad as we think he is several times in the interview. “He’s a big kid with a big heart that’s been through some things,” Tran said. (That’s one way of looking at it.) In fact, Tran even tried to take Brown to church and yoga to make him more at peace, but it didn’t work. “Yes, he is damaged,” she said. “But I’m damaged, too.” Thankfully, though, Tran is not interested in getting back together with Brown for the time being. “No,” she said. “Right now, I’m saying no…There’s no making up right now.”

She knew about the whole Rihanna thing.
Tran knew Brown was hanging out with Rihanna, but she didn’t see it as more than a quasi-friendship. However, that all changed after photos surfaced of Rihanna and Brown at a basketball game in late 2012. “I didn’t want to believe it,” Tran said. She also discussed how taking her anger and frustration out on social media wasn’t a good idea because it welcomed unwanted criticism into her life. “Don’t do that,” Tran said. “It’s the worst thing to do.” Sub-tweeters, take note.

Vanzant calls out Christina Milian for not telling Tran to leave Brown alone.
Vanzant sat down with Milian, Tran’s best friend, to discuss her feelings toward Brown. However, after a few wishy-washy statements about focusing on their friendship and not Brown, Vanzant asked Milian why she didn’t tell Tran to leave Brown alone if she was such a good friend. Milian kept her answer evasive, saying Tran doesn’t always tell people what’s really going on in her life. Serious props to Vanzant for calling out Milian, though.

She stills loves Brown.
The four words heard ’round the world: “I still love him.” We could feel Vanzant’s internal eye-roll as Tran said these words, but at least she was being honest. We later learn their relationship could have never worked because they want two different things in life. Tran is more traditional and wants marriage, kids, and a white picket fence. Brown wants whatever the opposite of that is, apparently. On Brown’s wild persona, Tran said, “I see both sides…I see a sweet loving side. Fun, makes me laugh…Not the Chris Brown that’s on stage.” With that, however, she was quick to admit she’s embarassed by how much she let Brown lie, betray, and humiliate her. “He did give me love,” she said. “Maybe not the right kind of love.”

She found out about Brown’s baby drama through social media.
Tran claimed that Brown tried to get a hold of her to tell her something really important, but social media beat him to the punch. The Internet spilled the tea for Tran, but she insists she’s not upset at the baby or the baby’s mother. The only issue she focuses on — if any — is the one between Karreuche and Chris. Speaking of social media, Tran said that she’s received messages like “I hope you die” on Instagram and Twitter, which isn’t cool at all.

Tran ended the interview by saying, “I’m a work in progress” and that she’s currently focusing on her career. However, we still need to talk about this interview. Were you satisfied with Tran’s answers? Sound off in the comments below.

Scott Disick Left Rehab to Party Apparently

Last week, Scott Disick checked himself into a rehab facility for his consistent alcohol abuse. Whether if he was trying to resolve his addiction or create a good marketing stunt, he left only a week in stating he has “business” to take care of in LA. Well it seems that making club appearances was the business.

According to TMZ, Lord Disick hit up 2 nightclubs before leaving his rehab clinic, and continued his regular party antics last night at 10AK in Vegas. A partygoer caught his appearance on video including him trying to get a married man a blowjob.

He claims that he will return to the rehab facility to finish the rest of his program, but he’s clearly living it up to the fullest until that day comes. Catch a glimpse of last nights shenanigans above.

So was his trip to rehab all a ruse? See what The Gossip Table has to say about it.

The Biggest Lessons Disney Movies Taught Us…That Are Totally Sexist

Sexist Disney Movies

Disney movies, while delightful nuggets of our childhood, are not known for their progressive attitudes toward women. Based upon classic fairy and folk tales, most created at a time when women were barely even a thing, Disney didn’t really help us out by giving us strong female leads, dependent upon no one and able to live her own life. But now in a brave, new, post-Frozen, post-Brave world, let’s look back on some of the lessons the older movies taught us…and hope they don’t teach anyone these lessons again.

The best thing you can wish for is a makeover and a dude’s attention.
cinderella-vh1

Cinderella was trapped in an abusive home (with three female abusers, no less) and she gets the magical fairy-ordained chance of a lifetime to get something better…and her fairy godmother gives her a dress and a ride to a party? How at no point was Cinderella like, “Um, thanks FG, swell party — can I have my dead dad back, or can you turn this pumpkin into a small efficiency apartment so I can get out of this hole?” And what time did this wish even come true? 11:30? She’s there maybe 10 minutes — long enough to walk in, dance for a quick minute then have Princey Pie ooze all over her without a real conversation. Then of course he rescues her — based solely on her tiny delicate feet — and she never gets even a taste of independence. Also, I bet glass slippers REALLY hurt. That’s a bunion waiting to happen. I hope her mice are good with a lance.

Don’t talk. As long as you’re pretty, that’s all that matters. 
ariel-voice

The message of “change yourself completely and give up your voice so a man will love you” isn’t even hidden in The Little Mermaid. Boys don’t want to hear what you have to say, little lamb. Just sit there and be pretty — the kind of pretty he wants you to be, of course. And kind of stupid. He’ll be really endeared to your fork hair combing.

Also, does it count as passing the Bechdel Test if the only woman any Disney princess ever talks to is trying to kill her?

It’s OK to kiss a woman who’s passed out.
Sleeping-beauty-kiss-vh1

Mm-hmm, Sleeping Beauty‘s Prince Phillip, I see you. Consent. Look it up.

Personality is overrated. Just let the menfolk save you as they see fit.
snow-white-vh1

I cannot name a single character element of Snow White. Does annoying voice count as part of her character development? No? Then, no I can’t do it. There is nothing to her. She’s sent away for being pretty, saved by seven dudes then saved by some other dude. All because she’s pretty and can cook and clean. Oh, and she gets kissed while passed out, too. THIS IS SOME COSBY SHIT, DISNEY.

It’s OK for a man to yell at you, isolate you from your family and make you dress the way he wants. Totally OK.
Stockholm Syndrome, thy name is Beauty and the Beast.

The closest thing to a happy ending you’re going to get is pick the man who gets the job you deserve.
jasmine-vh1

In Aladdin, Jasmine is told by her father than she has to marry a prince because she can’t lead the kingdom alone BECAUSE WOMAN! In the end though, she gets the happy news she wanted…kind of. She still can’t rule her kingdom, the one that she was born into ruling as a princess, BECAUSE WOMAN, but can pick the totally under-qualified man to do it for her. Um…thanks, dad.
