Secret Service isn’t pleased with Madonna’s ‘blowing up the White House’ remark
Madonna’s rally speech to the Women’s March this weekend about “blowing up the White House” has gotten the attention of federal law enforcement — as the Material Girl insisted Sunday she meant no harm. The US Secret Service, charged with protecting President Trump and his family, is aware of the comments and is investigating, according to the Gateway Pundit. The “Like a Virgin” singer told hundreds and thousands of marchers gathered in Washington Saturday: “Yes, I’m angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” Madonna said, wearing a black “pussycat” cap.
Celebrities join marches to speak out against Trump
Bold-faced names came out in force at the Women’s March on Washington and its “sister marches” — in some cases even risking the wrath of the Secret Service with their rhetoric. “Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” Madonna told the crowd in the nation’s capital. “But I know that this won’t change anything.” “It took this horrific moment of darkness to wake us the f–k up,” the Material Girl said. “Good did not win this election. But good will win in the end.”

M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Split’ Defeats ‘Return Of Xander Cage’ At The Weekend Box Office
M. Night Shyamalan’s “Split” has turned into a horror hit with a surprisingly strong $40.2 million in its opening weekend at 3,038 North American locations. “Split,” starring James McAvoy as a man with 24 different personalities, performed far above recent expectations for Universal and Blumhouse.

People who want to see “A Dog’s Purpose” will be greeted by animal rights activists and taunted if they buy tickets and enter the theater. PETA organizers tell TMZ they have plans to hit theaters across the country … protesting the treatment of the animal actors in the flick. As you know, the controversy erupted after TMZ posted video of a German Shepherd in distress when a handler tried to pull the canine into the water.

Stacey Dash, a vehement Trump supporter and Republican apologist—you know, the one former Fox CEO Roger Ailes reportedly called “the black girl”—has been kicked off one of her biggest soap boxes.

Paper Magazine editor fired after bashing ‘s–t’ intern to designers
There was “Devil Wears Prada”-worthy drama at Paper Magazine this past week when its fashion editor was let go for ruthlessly trashing a college intern to top designers. Paul-Simon Djite — fashion editor at the mag, which is famous for its Kim Kardashian “Break the Internet” cover — mass e-mailed designers on Wednesday with the subject line “Intern trying to bulls–t her way into shows.” Djite wrote, “It’s been brought to my attention that Keirra Webster . . . has been trying to rsvp for shows claiming she is my assistant.” He then goes ballistic, writing, “JUST FYI — KEIRRA DOES NOT WORK FOR ME!!” and alleges Webster was “an intern at PAPER, a real s–t one, and the audacity of this stunt must show you just how switched off the light in her head is. Please note, she is not worthy of your time . . . burn and dump the corpse of her communications in internet landfill.” He writes, “Such blatant stupidity . . . who birthed you keirra? they need to put you back in. you silly twat. quit your f–king around.”
