Sharknado 2: The Second One threatened to get as filthy as possible when it added Andy Dick, Judah Friedlander, Kelly Osbourne, and Mark McFuckinGrath to a cast already led by Tara Reid and Ian Ziering. Now we’re going even deeper into the B-list black hole with roles for Perez Hilton, Biz Markie, Salt-N-Pepa’s Pepa, and WWE wrestler Kurt Angle. Go home, Sharknado 2. You’re (still) drunk.

A thing you either absolutely don’t need in your life or need in your life more than anything: Blue Ivy saying “surfbort” and talking to her mother, Beyoncé, after a dry run of the Grammys performance of “Drunk in Love.” [via]

So begins the string of stories about where Darren Aronofsky’s Noah shall and shall not screen. It’s “starting to come under fire in the Middle East for contradicting Islamic law by portraying a prophet.”

Whether you are or aren’t on a first-name basis with Rozay’s “Sanctified” yet, you’ve gotta watch this Arsenio Hall Show performance. It’s prime Kanye.
