Sacha Baron Cohen is a comedic genius, a fact made apparent in the way he is dealing with possibly being banned from the Oscars.

As we reported earlier this week, Baron Cohen was supposedly banned from the Oscars after it was revealed that he planned to attend the ceremony as his newest character, Admiral General Shabazz Aladeen.

And how do you respond to such an action?  By appearing on “The Today Show” early this morning in full character!

General Aladeen spoke to Ann Curry on the phone about the incident, revealing, among other things, that he delayed 30 executions to do the interview, and he received all the medals adorning his military clothing by performing “great acts of bravery” and “impregnating over 13,000 women.”  Oh yeah…and concerning the Oscars:

“Those jokesters at the Academy have banned me, and normally I would be impressed by an act of cowardice by a faceless regime, but this is personal. You know, I have issued them an ultimatum. They have until midday on Sunday to give me my tickets back…If they do not, they will see and face unforeseen and unimaginable consequences. By the way—how is your family?”

Baron Cohen also issued an amazing  video statement, which you can watch below, expressing his outrage at being banned by the “Academy Of Motion Picture Arts & Zionists,”

But what do the producers, themselves, say?  Access Hollywood spoke to Don Mischer and Brian Grazer, and the pair said that not only is Baron Cohen welcome…he already has a part!

“We absolutely respect him as an artist and he’s allowed to come…He’s coming. In fact, he’s even part of the, there’s a piece — he’s part of the show… as himself.”

Personally, I say let the guy have the moment!  Don’t be so stuffy!  It’s going to be hysterical either way!  And I don’t think Baron Cohen is so disrespectful that he’ll do anything too drastic, especially since everyone knows who he is this time around (and can hold major grudges).  On the other hand, I could be completely wrong…

Check out Baron Cohen’s full video statement below.  THE DICTATOR, described by Aladeen as “the story of a great and benevolent leader who fights to stop democracy from ruining the lives of his people,” hits theaters on May 11.

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Published

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
