    "I never have and never will look at any human being as a prop. That's disgusting."



    Yesterday, Sky Ferreira shared the video for "I Blame Myself" from 2013's Night Time, My Time. In it, she plays the leader of a gang who participates in some illegal activity before getting arrested. In between, there's a dance sequence featuring Ferreira and her crew. "It's obviously based off of real events... people always ask me questions about certain things, and it's kind of like my response," she said in a behind the scenes video, possibly referring to her arrest for drug possession last fall. "I think actions speak louder than words."

    But the video has drawn accusations of exploitation and racism for the way Ferreira positions herself in relation to her gang members/dancers. "Almost touching black men doesn't make you cool, dangerous, or liberated in 2014," one person wrote on Twitter. "I'm tired of seeing black people used as props," another wrote on Facebook.

    Now, she's penned a response on her Facebook:

    Thank you so much for the love & support of the video. It's something that means a lot to me. I've never seen such a big response from my fans before

    I've been reading some of the responses and I had a few thoughts:

    Some people are accusing of being racist. I usually do not need to feel the need to explain myself(which I'm not) but I DO feel the need to share my thoughts on the situation. Nothing upsets me more than being called racist because that is one of the most hateful things anyone can be. Not only do I find it insulting towards myself but I also feel insulted for the actors & dancers & my family in the video. No, I did not use black back up dancers as "props". I never have and never will look at any human being as a prop. That's disgusting. It's also an idea that has never crossed my mind,which is what I find questionable of the people telling me that I did so.Dancers are objects?!?!?! How dare you! Dancers make things come to life. If they were white would they be considered "props"? I auditioned a bunch of dancers,all races & my dancers were the best ones. I know that you have to be socially aware & mindful of others but when I look at this video I don't see race as a issue.Stop trying to search for something that isn't there. Comments like "rich little white girl exploiting the black people & the ghetto"...I never exploited anyone & I don't use people in any shape or form. My brother is half black. My cousins are black. My family is Latina & Native American. Some of my family is in the video.I wasn't raised in a "white" house hold & I'm not little & I have financially supported myself since I was 15 years old. I'm a woman,not a fucking little girl. Because I have pale skin & green eyes doesn't mean I was raised in Beverly Hills and have Swedish film investor parents or whatever some have created in their minds. Would you feel more at ease if I danced with a bunch blonde white boys at a mall? Should I consciously only cast white dancers for now on? If I'm racist does that mean you're pro-segregation?! I'm from LA & shot the video there. I referenced 90s hip hop videos and Michael Jackson because both of those things inspire me & played a big part of my childhood. The only thing I'm sorry for is if this post seems to come off self defensive,which it isn't meant to be...but I had to share these thoughts because it drove me up the wall. Don't demean the actors & dancers in the video. They are more well spoken & aware than you and I will ever be. Please do research before you make such shitty accusations about people. Anyways...Thank you SSENSE & Atom Factory Management & Grant Singer for making this video happen. We have been trying to make it for a while & I'm so glad I get to share it with the world now <3333333

    Iggy Azalea is a rapper who needs no introduction, which is a remarkable achievement for a woman who is yet to release her debut album. However with a series of impressive singles under her belt, a handful of awe-inspiring festival performances and collaborations with the likes Charli XCX and T.I, it's not really surprising that she's rapidly becoming a household name.

    The Australian rapper first gained worldwide attention when she released the sexually charged video for under-ground hit 'PU$$Y', which went viral. She then released her second mixtape Trapgold and was quickly snapped up by Virgin EMI records and has since been working on her first album - The New Classic.

    Azalea gets the ball rolling with 'Walk The Line' where she announces to her fans "this that new classic" alongside announcing "check the rate that they pay me, a giant could never slay me" - an indicator that she's now making the big bucks from her rapid rise to fame as one of the few white female rappers in the business. I feel like 'Walk The Line' was the perfect track to open this highly-anticipated release. It's not weak but it's also a little reserved in the respect that listeners will still be unsure of what to expect.

    'Don't Need Y'all' is a stripped back rap track which has some serious Drake vibes. It's a very similar sound to something you'd expect the 'Hold On We're Going Home' singer to have on one of his albums. Despite the evident Drizzy influence, it's generally a decent track which appears to discuss the rap sirens rise to fame and the influence it had on the people around her. Low on production and more about Iggy's ability as a vocalist - both as a rapper and a singer, we experience a bit of both in 'Don't Need Y'all'.

    Despite it already being released as a single, it's impossible not to mention 'Fancy feat. Charli XCX'. It's simply destined to be a cult classic. It's such a well structured catchy collaboration between two up-and-coming highly talented contemporary artists. The video, sticking with the cult classic theme, pays homage to the '90s comedy film Clueless and I am really hoping it gets a nod at next years MTV Music Video Awards or even shortlisted for Best Music Video at the Grammys. A creative clip which highlights Azalea's potential as both a musician and a visual artist.

    Another contemporary collaboration featured on the album is on the track 'Black Widow' feauring Rita Ora. Everything about this piece screams commercial success: the catchy chorus, the club-beat which is recurring throughout and not to mention the fact that Rita Ora is already no stranger to having her name high up in the charts. Although it's not the best track on the album (certainly not the worst), for a commercial offering it's actually quite impressive and I suspect that this will be released as a single at some point in the near future.

    'Work' and 'Lady Patra (Feat. Mavado)' seem like two of the crowning jewels in the collection. Iggy sings about queens and the opera over the top of an electronic seemingly sci-fi influenced backdrop throughout 'Lady Partra' before spitting bars about her roots and her journey to success in 'Work', the latter of which was released over a year ago and which put in motion the hype for what will undoubtedly be one of the biggest albums of the year.

    The last track I want to mention is 'Goddess' which is out of this world and probably one of the better, if not the best, tracks on the album. Filled with roaring electric guitar solos and heavy drum beats not to mention Azalea bellowing "Bow down to a goddess, bow down to goddess," this single-worthy recording sounds like the one that will eventually be used to close big festival slots and create the biggest reaction for fans at gigs. Twerk-inducing and loud; 'Goddess' is the game-changer for Iggy Azalea and the glistening cherry on top of the immaculately produced, lyrically creative gem that is The New Classic.

    Rating: 8/10

    there’s a crazy story whipping around television circles in hollywood. it started small and petty. over time, more people became involved, and now it’s a likely that this cannonball is breakfast discussion for kimye. let’s start from the beginning.



    it’s a tv show. an ensemble cast, so plenty of faces to recognize and plenty of wild young hearts to fuel the flames of drama. most of the drama over the past year has been fueled by male actor and female actor. they’re big stars and have been on the show since the beginning. male actor and female actor didn’t like the direction the show had headed in and wanted the spotlight back for their characters — and careers. male actor and female actor arranged sitdowns with producers: they wanted the show to head in a different direction. they wanted another actor, mister costar, written off of the show.

    it’ll fix the ratings, they said. it’ll bring the show back to its former glory, they said. it’ll give a boost to our careers that we’ve missed recently, they thought. mister costar might not have been the most likeable character. he might have been annoying on set as well, but no more than male actor and female actor. it wasn’t fair.

    the producers took the bait and began the process to write mister costar off of the show. the rumour really started to simmer at this point! fans weren’t impressed.

    another castmember, miss costar, thought this was one big mess. her career was taking off in other ways, and she wasn’t impressed with the immature actions of male actor and female actor. since she spent a lot of her screentime with male actor and female actor, she decided to take the jump. the writers didn’t want to lose two big names in mister costar and miss costar at once, but the plan was definitely set.

    before long, miss costar was in the news for other reasons — relationship drama. it was a breakup; she had caught her significant other cheating, and that was the final straw. her ex-boy, mister sweetie, said that she flirted with other men too much. in fact, there were plenty of accusations thrown around, but not all of them were true. here is where the story starts to boil over.

    see, miss costar didn’t care if mister sweetie cheated here and there. the relationship was good for her name and for her career; he could be her jump-off. the big deal this time was who mister sweetie was cheating with, and miss costar had all the proof she needed in texts on his phone. mister sweetie didn’t even try to deny it!

    he had been kneading the dough with female actor on the side. who would’ve thought?

    in two separate events, the producers of the television program relented. caving to popular demand, they changed the direction of the future to keep mister costar on the show. his storyline would keep minimal screentime with male actor. the spicy garnish to this hot dinner is that now miss costar is debating staying on the show as well. who wouldn’t love to watch female actor squirm in scenes with miss costar now that her secret playtime with mister sweetie isn’t a secret?

    Bryan Singer, the star director behind the blockbuster X-Men franchise, was named in a federal lawsuit Wednesday, accusing the filmmaker of intentional infliction of emotional distress, battery, assault and invasion of privacy, in connection with the purported sexual abuse of a then-underage Hollywood hopeful.

    The director’s legal representation is Hollywood heavyweight Marty Singer, the powerhouse lawyer for big name clients including John Travolta.

    “The claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit,” Marty Singer (no relation to Bryan) said in reaction to the suit Wednesday. “We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit.

    “It is obvious that this case was filed in an attempt to get publicity at the time when Bryan’s new movie is about to open in a few weeks.”


    Singer’s upcoming installment in the franchise, X-Men: Days of Future Past, features an ensemble cast of A-listers including Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry. It opens May 23.

    While Radar does not identify sex abuse victims by name, Egan had already been publicly identified by his lawyer, and had expressed his intent to speak openly about the issue in Thursday’s news conference.

    The just-announced Mrs. Doubtfire sequel won’t feature a full cast reunion. Mara Wilson, who played Robin Williams and Sally Field’s young daughter Natalie Hillard, has announced she has no desire to return for a second movie.

    “I’ve been in some mediocre movies, but I’ve never been in a sequel. And I have no interest in being in one now,” the actress and writer wrote on Twitter. “Sequels generally suck unless they were planned as part of a trilogy or series. I think Doubtfire ended where it needed to end.”

    Pop-group-Royksopp--Robyn-001
    Robyn has announced a "mini-album, Röyksopp ahead of her forthcoming tour with Röyksopp. The Swedish singer and Norwegian DJs have collaborated on a five-song collection called Do It Again, which they will release on 26 May.

    "This doesn't sound like Röyksopp featuring Robyn, or Robyn produced by Röyksopp – it's just something else entirely," Röyksopp said in a statement.

    The Dancing on My Own singer appeared on Röyksopp's 2009 single The Girl and the Robot, while DJs Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland produced Robyn's track None of Dem, from her album Body Talk. They have reportedly been collaborating on new material since early 2013. "It started to feel more like a band thing than songs for a Röyksopp or Robyn album," Robyn said recently.

    Although the term mini-album might seem like a fancy nickname for an EP, the musicians have emphasised Do It Again's "cohesive ... diversity". The title track, which will be released as a single on 28 April, is described as an effervescent, "accidental pop song" that began as a "rave-inspired throwback". They have described the track as "big thumping house", while Inside the Idle Hour Club is "a pensive, slowly evolving soundscape".

    On Monday, Robyn and Röyksopp unveiled a snippet of Monument, the 10-minute song that opens the album. They co-wrote the song's lyrics, drawing inspiration from a sculpture by Brazilian/American artist Juliana Cerqueira Leite, whose work Robyn said gave her a "physical experience of what it's like to define yourself or stand for something or figure out who you are".

    Robyn's last full-length, Body Talk, was itself a compilation of three "mini-albums". Released in 2010, it reached only No 168 on the UK album chart.

    Paris Jackson's (biological) mother Debbie Rowe's custody battle was prompted by Michael Jackson's "greedy" brothers, according to a new interview with the former nurse. Meanwhile, Michael's son Prince Jackson will reportedly oppose the petition because he doesn't want to live with his biological mother.
    Debbie Rowe has told TMZ that she expected the King of Pop's brothers to turn the custody battle into a money issue as Jermaine, Randy, Tito and Jackie accused her of abandoning both Paris Jackson and Prince Jackson when they were still little after taking Michael Jackson's money.
    Debbie Rowe is scoffing at members of the Jackson family who claim she abandoned her children for Michael Jackson's money ... saying it's a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black.
    However, Paris Jackson's mother insisted that Michael Jackson was constantly calling her for advice while raising their children. She also said that the recent attack by the Jackson brothers were prompted by greed as they stand to lose the $50,000 monthly child support from the Estate.
    For his part, Jermaine Jackson in a TMZ interview claimed that Michael Jackson would be nothing without the Jackson 5. He also said that he didn't have to smooch off the Jackson estate because he made a fortune from the time they were still a group.
    Meanwhile, Prince Jackson is supposedly "disgusted" by Debbie Rowe's plan for custody petition.
    "First, Debbie wasn't around for years, and Prince doesn't consider her his mother," a source told Radar Online. "As far as Prince is concerned, Debbie was basically a surrogate mother."
    Debbie Rowe earlier claimed that Prince Jackson is out of control because of lack of supervision from the legal guardian, 80-year-old Katherine Jackson, but the source said that "Prince has a 4.2 GPA and is on track to graduate with honors."

    Debbie needs to gtfo imo. if Paris wants to live with her then that's her decision and should be honored, but Prince and Blanket clearly want nothing to do with her and are comfortable living with their Jackson family, leave them the hell alone!

    Sometimes, as seems to be the case with every Marvel movie, lots of actors are linked with a role, in what seems to amount to a public audition process. But there have been many instances in the past where someone has been offered the role in a comic book movie, often even signing the deal, yet it never came to pass. So whilst this article isn't going to talk about those who got down to the shortlist, it will focus on the people who got the job as a comic book character, but never got to play them.

    Tom Cruise - Iron Man



    Tom Cruise never fully signed on the dotted line to play Iron Man, but it was no secret he was involved in the project for some time. The actor was not only set to star as Tony Stark in the movie, but also produce it. And Marvel's Kevin Feige admitted as much at the time, revealing that discussions had been ongoing for a number of years.
    Cruise eventually dropped out of the project though, saying back in 2004 that "as it was lining up, it just didn't feel to me like it was going to work". With Cruise departing the project, Kevin Feige would ultimately recruit Jon Favreau to direct Iron Man, and he in turn cast Robert Downey Jr in the lead role. Cruise, to date, hasn't taken a comic book character on.

    Armie Hammer - Batman



    Of the many abandoned attempts to bring Batman to the big screen, one of them was being shepherded by Mad Max director George Miller. Back in 2007, he even got to the stage of casting for his project, Justice League. This would, as you might assume, have been an assembling of DC comic book heroes in one movie. And one of those heroes would have been Batman.
    Miller got quite far down the road with the project, before it was kiboshed by matters out of his hands. The writers' strike of 2008, and a change in the Australian tax rebate incentive programme, changed the financial dynamics of Justice League. Warner Bros would instead press ahead with Christopher Nolan on a Batman reboot.
    However, Miller had already cast Armie Hammer as his Batman. The same Armie Hammer who came to prominence in The Social Network, and then took on the title role in The Lone Ranger. Hammer has since admitted that the version of Justice League that Miller was planning wouldn't have had the violent edge of Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel. He's also distanced himself from taking on the role of Batman in any future movie project.

    Adam Brody - The Flash and Megan Gale - Wonder Woman



    Talking of Miller's Justice League movie, he'd already cast a couple of other people in the roles of comic book heroes. Specifically, Adam Brody was signed up to play The Flash, and Megan Gales was set to be Wonder Woman. Those two pieces of casting went south when the project was put into turnaround.

    Annette Bening - Catwoman



    On Batman Returns, someone else who got cast in the film was Annette Bening. She won the role of Catwoman, off the back of her excellent work in The Grifters, which Tim Burton had seen and was impressed by. She beat quite a field too, with everyone from Cher and Madonna through to Susan Sarandon and Bridget Fonda apparently competing for the role.
    Yet Burton's Batman movies had a problem with their lead female roles. Sean Young was originally set to play Vicki Vale in 1989's Batman, but a riding injury forced her to pass, and Kim Basinger took on the part. In the case of Catwoman, Bening discovered she was pregnant, and thus had to relinquish the role. Michelle Pfeiffer subsequently met up with Tim Burton, and he gave her the part instead (for more money than Bening would had cost).

    Nicholas Cage - Superman



    It's no longer Batman, but we're still talking Tim Burton here, with one of the most infamous pieces of comic book casting that never ultimately came to light. Had all gone to the original plan, Tim Burton would have rebooted the Superman franchise in the 1990s, with Superman Lives. This was a project so now steeped in comic book movie folklore that a documentary is being made about. You can find details of that here.
    Nicolas Cage signed up to play the role of Clark Kent/Superman in the movie, pocketing $20m for his trouble on a pay-or-play contract (which meant that even if the movie didn't get made, he got his moolah). He went in for extensive costume tests, many of which have subsequently appeared online.
    Burton fought for Cage, arguing that he could being something different to the role, specifically that he could make Clark Kent and Superman feel like two characters that people wouldn't immediately visually link.
    But then Warner Bros got cold feet. With the bill heading north of $100m for the negative, at one point nearly touching $200m - and this was the mid-1990s too - the studio eventually decided it was too rich a deal. It put Superman Lives on hold, and when Tim Burton departed in April 1998 to go and make Sleepy Hollow instead, the project was all but dead.
    Warner Bros spent around $30m on the film eventually, with little more than those leaked Cage photos to show for it. Cage, a lifelong comic book fan, would eventually take on the role of Ghost Rider instead. We're coming to him again later a little bit further down this list too...

    As far I believe, these images posted by Hollywood stuntman and fight choreographer, Greg Van Borssum, are the first behind-the-scenes look at George Miller's Justice League: Mortal cast. You can see: Armie Hammer ("The Lone Ranger") who would've played Batman, Adam Brody ("The O.C.") who would've been The Flash, D.J. Cotrona ("G.I. Joe: Retaliation") who would've played Superman, Megan Gale ("Project Runway Australia") who would've played Wonder Woman, Santiago Cabrera ("Heroes") who would've played Aquaman, Hugh Keays-Byrne ("Mad Max: Fury Road") who would've played The Martian Manhunter, Teresa Palmer ("The Grudge 2") who would've played Talia Al Ghul and Jay Baruchel ("Goon") who would've played Maxwell Lord. Only main cast members not included in the images below are Common (John Stewart), Anton Yelchin (Wally West), Zoe Kazan (Iris West) and Stephen Tobolowsky (Alfred Pennyworth).

    In February of 2007, Warner Bros. hired Keiran and Michelle Mulroney to write a script for a Justice League movie. This caught many observers by surprise as WB had just released Bryan Singer's Superman Returns the year before, and Chris Nolan was just beginning production of The Dark Knight. Leaving many fans wondering if Brandon Routh or Christian Bale was part of the equation. In September of 2007, George Miller ("Mad Max") came on board as director and would later confirmed that his film would feature new interpretations of Superman and Batman.

    Warner Bros. fast tracked the film in hopes of avoiding the Writers Guild of America strike, and scheduled the film to begin filming in February 2008 in Australia. This is when the perfect storm happened. Recently-elected prime minister, Kevin Rudd, changed the tax rebate incentive program and then the writer's strike took place. With an estimated budget well over $200 million, and with no ability to make changes to the script, due to the strike, Warner Bros. had to pull the plug on the project. It also didn't help that fan backlash to the film was incredibly high, so anticipation for it was lukewarm at best.


    From the bottom- director George Miller, Jay Baruchel (Maxwell Lord), Hugh Keays-Byrne (Martian Manhunter). Next row- Santiago Cabrera (Aquaman), Adam Brody (The Flash), Teresa Palmer (Talia al Ghul), stuntman Greg Van Borssum, and producer Barrie Osborne(Lord of the Rings). Armie Hammer (Batman) is at the very back and D.J. Cotrona (Superman) directly in front of him.

    ITV has cancelled its 1950s codebreakers drama, Bletchley Circle...

    We may not have covered The Bletchley Circle on this site, but any show whose official Twitter handle is @ladynerds surely falls under the protection of our geek umbrella.

    After two short seasons, ITV's women-led 1950s-set codebreakers drama has been cancelled. The series starred Anna Maxwell Martin, Rachel Stirling, Sophie Rundle and Julie Graham as former WWII Bletchley Park codebreakers, using their considerable nous in post-war civilian life to solve crimes.

    A four-episode second series of the drama ran earlier this year, and despite it hanging on to an average of 4.9 million viewers each week, ITV appears to have called time on the female investigators. The Twitter response to the cancellation has been characterised by disappointment, with messages displaying quite understandable "There are obviously already too many women geniuses being awesome on TV" frustration.

    Anyone who followed the Ripper Street developments from the news of cancellation to its phoenix-like return knows that the end isn't necessarily the end these days on television. As we discovered here, fan campaigns can shore up and offer moral support to executives fighting for renewal. Watch this space...

    The 27-year-old actress says what happened was "humiliating and mean" as she breaks her silence on the list of her alleged sexual conquests

    V I D E O
    *Sneak Peak for next episode*

    Remember THAT list? You know, the one with a list of Lindsay Lohan's alleged sexual conquests?

    Well, the actress has confirmed she did pen it.

    The 27-year-old actress made the confession when she was appearing on Watch What Happens Live AND in a preview for the finale of her docu-series.

    "The story's on Page Six right now," she says in the sneak peek. "That actually really is annoying right now. It's f**ked up. And I don't want a part in it."

    "The fact that that happened was not only humiliating, but just mean," she then says after a headline of her list of conquests shows up on the screen.

    While speaking to Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen, Lindsay revealed: "You know, I'm going to get serious for a second."

    "That was actually my fifth step in AA at Betty Ford. And someone, when I was moving during the OWN show, must have taken a photo of it. And so that's a really personal thing and it's really unfortunate… I talk about it on the last episode on the OWN show, so to be continued."

    The actress is said to have written it down to impress friends during a boozy night out at the Beverly Hills hotel in Los Angeles.

    Half the names have been kept secret so far for legal reasons.

    Those published by In Touch Weekly included Heath Ledger, Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, 34, and Coldplay’s Guy Berryman, 35.

    She is also said to have named Orlando Bloom, 37, Ashton Kutcher, 36, Zac Efron, 26, and Benicio Del Toro, 47.

    Men not noted down but thought to be conquests are Calum Best, 33, and McFly’s Harry Judd, 28.

    On the pressure of his new movie The Maze Runner:"I haven't really felt any real pressure from the fan base because so far they have just been so positive with everything we're doing. It just feels like they have been excited and unconditionally supportive rather than hostile and judgmental."



    On comparing himself to Stiles on Teen Wolf:"[Unlike Stiles], I am actually innately shy and I am not as quick as he is to be confident in what he has to face. [But we're similiar in the] way he feels about his friends and how he is loyal to them…and [how he] would do anything for them."

    Actor Ryan Kelley flashes his washboard abs while shirtless for this new photo shoot, provided exclusively to JustJaredJr.com!

    The 27-year-old Teen Wolf cast member opened up to JJJ about his co-stars, favorite off-screen moments, and more. Check it:

    JustJaredJr.com: How has the Teen Wolf family treated you so far? Who have you clicked with the best?

    Ryan Kelley: It’s been amazing, I’ve been acting since I was about 6 years old and this has been one of the most incredible experiences I’ve ever had. It’s such a great opportunity to join the cast of an already established hit show, particularly one I was already a big fan of. I know everyone says this, but they all truly have fun on set filming everyday, which takes any work out of it.

    Honestly everyone is super cool, but I’ve spent most of my time filming scenes at the Sheriff’s station so naturally I’ve really hit it off with Linden Ashby. He’s just a great guy and an incredible actor to work with. I’ve played younger characters for so long it’s nice to finally play a slightly more adult part, I thought for a while I was going to get stuck being a teenager forever. It’s nice to let some of the other actors do scenes talking at a locker in a High School hallway for a change.

    JJJ: What’s been your favorite off-screen moment on the set of Teen Wolf?

    RK: My favorite off screen moment on set had to be during the filming the finale of season 3B. It’s the scene where the evil Oni are attacking the station. We had already been at it 14-plus hours on an all night shoot. The Oni’s are swinging their Katana swords and we’re shooting our guns and after so many hours of that everyone starts to get very loopy and when “Action” was yelled for one of our last takes, Linden was not entering frame. We were all just waiting for him to enter… He had fallen asleep and no one noticed. After waking him up everyone got one good last laugh before finally ending an extremely long day. Good times!”

    JJJ: What’s your favorite prop from set?

    RK: My favorite prop from set is my entire uniform. When the badge is stuck to on my chest and the gun is placed on my hip, I start to actually feel like a deputy. Don’t worry though, they don’t trust me with a real gun.

    Amber Heard had a girls’ night out with friends — sparking speculation it could be a bachelorette bash— on Saturday night before her impending marriage to Johnny Depp.

    Spies saw Heard and four pals at Simon Hammerstein’s Diamond Horseshoe at the Paramount Hotel.
    They took in the show “Queen of the Night” while dining on lobster and had “the best view in the house of a sexy Chinese pole act.”

    Depp recently shot down rumors on “Today” that Heard is pregnant.
