Selena Gomez cried about Justin Bieber at Taylor Swift's party
Someone please tell Selena Gomez to get over the Canadian singer, because throwing a fit at her best friend's 25th birthday bash is beyond uncool and frankly, embarrassing.

Us Weekly reports that while the party went on at Taylor's Tribeca apartment – in the presence of Beyoncé, Jay Z, Sam Smith, Nick Jonas, Ansel Elgort, Justin Timberlake, Karlie Kloss, the Haim sisters, Jaime King, Chrissy Teigen... essentially, nearly all of Taylor's many BFFs – Selena started going on a rant about her on-again-off-again boyfriend.

"No one understands me! My boyfriend doesn't even understand me," she reportedly shouted. According to an Us Weekly insider, she caused quite the scene, causing a few bystanders to stare, including singer Sam.

Aside from that little splutter, the party went smoothly and rather festively, as proven by photos on the birthday girl's Instagram.

 

So this is being 25..... #WHAT #bestbirthdayEVER

Selena was there by her bestie's side as the latter blew out her candles. Knowing Taylor's relationship with her friends, all must have been forgiven the second it was over.

 

When you're making a wish, but you already have all you really need standing around you.

Jenny Slate sings Landslide as Marcel the Shell
If you don't know who Marcel the Shell is, it's not too late to be introduced. Marcel is, quite literally, a shell. With shoes. And one eye. Created and voiced by actress and comedian Jenny Slate, Marcel's quivering voice and tiny proportions have become quite an internet sensation since the stop-motion film starring the shell was released in 2010.

Jenny sampled a little bit of Fleetwood Mac's classic Landslide to Conan O'Brien on his show on Tuesday night and if that doesn't make you chuckle as you picture the little mollusc doing his thing, you need to lighten up. Maybe this will help, too.

Neil Gaiman wanted Benedict Cumberbatch to play Sandman, but...
Since the Sherlock star has been snapped up by Marvel to play Doctor Strange, Sandman author Neil Gaiman said that he still sees Morpheus (another name for Sandman) in Tom Hiddleston.

"I think the first time I saw Benedict was as Sherlock Holmes, I thought, 'wow, that's incredibly Morpheus'," he told Radio Times. "And fans probably thought the same because they immediately started doing fan-art, meshing the two of them up."

That's probably not going to happen, so the English author said, "Then again, Tom Hiddleston is still out there! And the truth is, as far as I'm concerned, anybody who sounds English with great cheekbones can probably pull it off."

So, cheekbones and sounds English. Does anyone else fit that description? Actually, yes.

"There was a time Johnny Depp would've been a great Morpheus, but now he's too old and it's fine," Neil added.

Warner Bros. announced the film adaptation of the graphic novel in 2013, with David S. Goyer (who boasts numerous DC and Marvel comics film credits) and actor-director Joseph Gordon-Levitt tied to the production. Joseph will more likely co-produce and direct the film.

Elton John and David Furnish may finally wed soon
Elton and David have been in a civil partnership since 2005, but with UK's Marriage Act now revised to allow gay couples to officially marry, the pair have expressed their plans to wed for real.

They had initial plans to tie the knot in May, but it seems that didn't work out. However, a spokesperson for Elton confirmed to People that the ceremony will take place sometime soon this holiday season.

"We don't feel the need to take an extra step legally. But since we're committed for life, we feel it's really important to take that step, and take advantage of that amazing change in legislation," David said in March.

Christmas bells and wedding bells for Elton and David? We're very excited for them.

Sony Pictures cuts The Interview
It's official: controversial action-comedy film The Interview has been taken down, with Sony Pictures cancelling all release plans on top of media appearances after hackers released malicious terror threats. Sony expressed in a statement that they are "saddened at this brazen effort to suppress the distribution of a movie" but understand and respect their partners' decisions to not screen the film, in the interest of safety of employees and cinemagoers.

With the $44million production down the drain, it further adds to the financial nightmare that the major hacks by the 'Guardians of Peace' have piled onto Sony Pictures. US investigators have deduced that North Korea is indeed behind the cyber attacks, although it was previously denied by the country.
