Shia Labeouf Handcuffed in "Cabaret"

Actor Shia Labeouf was arrested during a Broadway performance of “Cabaret” on Friday night. And no, it wasn’t part of the show.

He allegedly yelled at the actors, using obscenities, and even lit a cigarette at one point. When security guards and the police tried to remove him, he became aggressive and in colorful terms offered to rearrange their faces and more.

A passerby happened to snap a picture of Shia and some police officers outside the theater. Shia was booked and released later that night, and has to go to court late next month to answer the charges.


We’re getting whispers of a possible defense. He thought he was in a movie theater watching one of his own films. Pretty plausible reason to go a little whacko.

In the meantime, he'll be busy filming his new movie, Train Wreck, with his co-starts - Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan.

Oliver Stone Would Be Soooooooo Proud!

As Futbol Fever takes over the US of A, not everyone is excited. Take Dr. Keith Ablow, a panelist on Fox News’s Outnumbered, for instance. He thinks that the World Cup is just a way to distract people from what's really going on in the world. “It’s like Rome. I can see why Obama would enjoy the World Cup…”



This on the heels of conservative columnist Ann Coulter’s manifesto on soccer last week. She thinks it’s all just a liberal conspiracy. “"In soccer, the blame is dispersed and almost no one scores anyway. There are no heroes, no losers, no accountability, and no child's fragile self-esteem is bruised.”

Oh, and she doesn’t like the fact that you can’t use your hands in soccer, as our opposable thumbs are “what sets man apart from the lesser beasts.” Having a soul also factors into that whole setting-man-apart scenario for Ann, which is interesting, since she seems to be missing hers.

Can You Go Overboard on a Kardashian Birthday!

Okay, it’s time for French Montana to knock it off. To celebrate Khloe Kardashian’s birthday over the weekend, he went a little wild with his credit card.

First, he got Khloe a Jeep. Which you would think would be enough.

Enough? For a Kardashian? Ha!

He also got her $30K worth of jewelry. Because the Jeep don’t mean a thing if Khloe don’t have the bling. Am I right?

I mean, the girl’s birthday party was on her yacht. And you just don’t show up to a birthday party on a yacht with a gift card from Applebee’s. Unless you want to leave the yacht on the water side.

Jimmy Fallon's Random Lip Sync Challenge

VidCon 2014 was held over the weekend in Anaheim. It’s called the “world’s premier gathering of people who make online video,” so a lot of creative folks would be expected in attendance.

The folks at The Tonight Show set up a Random Lip Sync Challenge booth at the convention, giving folks the chance to lip sync – but the song selection wasn’t made until they were inside the booth.

These two guys ended up with Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” when the wheel stopped spinning. Watch the video, and tell me: do you get the sense these guys have performed this one before?

Yeah, me too…

Paul McCartney Remembers MJ While Katy Perry Sort of Doesn't Remember Paul

This is from a couple of weeks ago, but it’s a neat little video clip. Katy Perry and Paul McCartney (who ever thought they would ever share a couch?) were guests on the BBC’s Graham Norton Show.

Katy was trying to salute Paul, but she stumbled a little when she got to “… and the fact that you’re still here today…” Pretty funny the way it worked out.

And then Paul tells a great story about meeting and working with the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, and some interesting advice Paul gave him. Check it out…

Attagirl, Amy Adams!

This is one of those rare feel-good stories, and it’s definitely worth sharing.

Actress Amy Adams – from American Hustle, Man of Steel, Trouble with the Curve and more – was flying to LA from Detroit last week when she quietly arranged with airline personnel to give her first-class seat to a US serviceman.

She tried to keep the exchange private, but of course, we all know that’s impossible these days. When the media found out, she said she didn’t do it to bring attention to herself – she did it bring attention to the troops.

Nicely played, Amy.

BET Awards Weekend: 1 Killed, 5 Others Injured at Pre-Show Parties in Los Angele

One person was killed and at least five others injured when violence unfolded at two BET Awards pre-show parties this weekend in Los Angeles.

In one incident, a man was shot to death and four others injured at an overnight gathering at Monalizza Restaurant and Banquet Hall in the 1100 block of North Vermont Avenue, Officer Drake Madison of the Los Angeles Police Department told TheWrap.

The shooting occurred around 5:17 a.m. on Sunday when a gunman opened fire on a crowd of partygoers, the LAPD said. It was unclear if the shooting happened inside or outside the restaurant, police said.

Three of the victims were rushed to local hospitals by ambulance, including an adult male who died a short time later. Two other people were taken to the hospital in private vehicles, according to police. Their conditions were not known.

Video from the scene, aired on local TV station CBS Los Angeles, showed partygoers filing out of the restaurant as paramedics performed CPR on one of the victims.

In a separate incident, a man was stabbed at a BET Awards pre-show party on Saturday night at Lure Nightclub in Hollywood.

The stabbing unfolded around 9 p.m. at the nightclub, which is located in the 1400 block of Ivar Avenue, the LAPD told TheWrap.

The victim, who was described as being in his 30s, was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. He suffered a puncture wound and a laceration to his stomach, and was listed in stable condition, police said.

A security guard inside the club told CBS Los Angeles that chart-topping rapper The Game was among those attending the party when the stabbing took place.

The hip-hop star was not injured, the security guard said.

Both incidents remain under investigation and no arrests have been made in either case.

While organizers touted both gatherings as BET Awards pre-parties, the LAPD and a BET spokesperson said neither gathering was officially sanctioned by the cable network.

“The two isolated incidents over the weekend occurred at locations with events that were unauthorized and unaffiliated with the BET Awards, BET Experience at L.A. LIVE or their partners,” BET said in a statement obtained by TheWrap. ”Security remains the number one priority for all official BET events and the network and all organizers will continue to maintain a safe environment for all planned activities,” the statement continued.

The BET Awards are taking place on Sunday evening at 8 p.m. ET at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles.

50 Cent Lands TV Show Deal With Comedy Central

50 Cent says he's sold another TV show and adds Comedy Central's name to the announcement.

50 Cent has sold a TV show to Comedy Central, according to the rapper. 

"I bet a HATER will get tired of hating. Before I lose passion,I just sold another TV show,COMEDY CENTRAL #smsaudio #power," he said. 

The rapper currently has Power, a show airing on Starz TV. The show's star, Omari Hardwick, recently spoke about 50's involvement on the set of the series. 

"It was pretty amazing," Hardwick said. "He's tried... and proven in other parts of his life, as a mogul, as a Rap artist. It was really interesting for me to see him take on the executive producer hat of a show like this. He had done producing before...but to see him be active and take my phone call on the dime...If I'd call and go, 'We really need you on the set today.' We have an incredible cast, so it wasn't just me, it would be me speaking for the cast and going, 'Folks need your energy today.' And he'd be down in like 30 minutes. He was really active...He's great to work with."
