In surprising and random news, “Annie” star Cameron Diaz, 42, wed Good Charlotte musician Benji Madden, 35, in an intimate ceremony at their Los Angeles home this week. This is the first marriage for both Diaz and Madden, whose twin brother Joel Madden is married to Nicole Richie.
The “People’s Choice Awards” aired this week, and after polling the public for their favorites across television, film and pop culture, winners like Taylor Swift, Robert Downey Jr., Ellen DeGeneres and CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” took home major awards.
Hosted by “Mom” co-stars Anna Faris and Alison Janey, the awards show also featured performances by Iggy Azalea, Fall Out Boy and Lady Antebellum.
Sony Picture’s “The Interview” has gotten ton of press for its plotline, which includes a plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. After pulling the film from theaters around the world, Sony eventually agreed to release the film through on demand services as well as YouTube, where it has already garnered more than $31 million in consumer sales.
Now it seems that streaming service Netflix wants in on some of the action, according to the company’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos. “People want to see the movie and we want to be able to deliver the movie,” he told reporters at a television conference.
Here’s to hoping a hacking scandal doesn’t happen at Netflix. Chaos may actually ensue if people can’t binge-watch whole season of “Orange Is The New Black” or “House of Cards.”

Following a long-standing battle with cancer, key ESPN anchor Stuart Scott has passed away at the age of 49. Best known for his 21 years of work with the network, Scott was first diagnosed with cancer in November 2007 before undergoing chemotherapy for a second time in 2011.
President Barack Obama, whom Scott once interviewed and played a televised game of one-on-one with, offered kind words to Scott’s family, friends, and colleagues.
“I will miss Stuart Scott,” Obama said. “Twenty years ago, Stu helped us in a new way to talk about our favorite teams and the day’s best plays.”
“For much of those twenty years, public service and campaigns have kept me from my family — but wherever I went, I could flip on the TV and Stu and his colleagues on SportsCenter were there,” he added. Over the years, he entertained us, and in the end, he inspired us,” President Obama added.
It’s getting more and more difficult for Iggy Azalea to get fans on her side, but she’s trying. This week Azalea responded to criticism about her being a white and a rapper, saying that much of the problem has to do with her being a woman.
“Well, they don’t say that stuff about Macklemore. So, yes, I think it has 100,000 percent to do with the fact that I have a vagina,” Azalea said about the alleged misogyny.
Now, all we have to do is sit back and wait on Azealia Banks reaction.
