Matthew McConaughey, Julia Roberts, Emma Stone, more read mean tweets about themselves -- VIDEO

Julia Roberts’ gigantic mouth looks like it will devour an elephant in one bite. Mindy Kaling is not funny or attractive; she has an annoying voice and just plainly sucks. Emma Stone looks like she smells like cat piss. Matthew McConaughey, quite plainly, is a d–k turd.

All these things are true… according to citizens of Twitter, anyway. They’re each included in Jimmy Kimmel’s latest installment of “Mean Tweets,” which asks famous people to read the nasty stuff that normos are writing about them on the internet. It’s tough to say who wins this round: Gary Oldman, who can barely keep it together? Sofia Vergara, who has a snappy retort to the troll slagging off on her? David Blaine, who accidentally proves his detractor right? No, wait, I know the answer: It’s June Squibb. Why? Just watch.

High schooler tries to get out of finals with Twitter

Kids these days!

The latest trend among high schoolers is to try getting out of finals using Twitter. Unfortunately, that method isn’t as effective as they may hope.

Andrew Muennink, a senior at Texas’s Round Rock High School, recently sent out a photo with art teacher Cindy House. The two are shaking hands in front of a whiteboard reading “15,000 RTs and no art final” — meaning, of course, that if Muennink’s photo was retweeted 15,000 times, he’d be safe from the test.

The Black Keys' Patrick Carney has some choice words for Justin Bieber... again

Back in February 2013, an unlikely Twitter war broke out — Justin Bieber and his millions of Beliebers began attacking The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney after the drummer made some off-handed comments to TMZ.

When a paparazzo asked Carney if he thought the pop star should feel snubbed by his lack of a Grammy nomination, the rocker replied: “Grammys are for music, not for the money, and he’s making a lot of money. He should be happy.”

Bieber didn’t take too kindly to that response, telling his followers via Twitter that “the Black Keys drummer should be slapped around haha.”

In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, Carney is reflecting on the incident, which lasted for months as Bieber’s fans berated the drummer on social media. READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber responds to Seth Rogen hate on Twitter -- VIDEO

Justin Bieber found out Seth Rogen doesn’t like him, and he seems bummed about it.

Earlier this week, Rogen spoke to Howard Stern on Sirius and reminisced about the first time he met the Biebs. They were at a German talk show, and someone told Rogen that Bieber was a fan and wanted to meet him. But when the two had their meeting, Bieber didn’t exactly show his excitement. “I was like, ‘He’s a little bit of a motherf—er. Whatever. He’s a bit of a d—,'” Rogen told Stern.

'Saturday Night Live' writer Leslie Jones responds to criticism of slavery standup -- VIDEO

If you joke about slavery on TV, you’re going to get some backlash.

Leslie Jones, a writer for Saturday Night Live, made her onscreen debut during May 3’s Weekend Update segment. Jones performed a short standup routine about being single. The twist: Jones declared that she never would have been unattached in the days of slavery. In the bit, she calls herself a “number-one slave draft pick” and talks about how she’d be so popular that she’d be popping out babies every nine months. Naturally, these jokes got a few people upset — including Ebony senior editor Jamilah Lemieux, who blasted Jones on Twitter, calling her an “embarrassment.”

Fans were aghast that their beloved Princess of Alderaan would screw up Star Wars lingo. She quickly corrected herself in the most Carrie Fisher way possible: READ FULL STORY

Mara Wilson has 'no interest' in 'Mrs. Doubtfire' sequel

The just-announced Mrs. Doubtfire sequel won’t feature a full cast reunion. Mara Wilson, who played Robin Williams and Sally Field’s young daughter Natalie Hillard, has announced she has no desire to return for a second movie.

“I’ve been in some mediocre movies, but I’ve never been in a sequel. And I have no interest in being in one now,” the actress and writer wrote on Twitter. “Sequels generally suck unless they were planned as part of a trilogy or series. I think Doubtfire ended where it needed to end.”

It was revealed Wednesday that Robin Williams will reunite with original director Chris Columbus for the sequel, which will be written by Elf writer David Berenbaum.

Check out all of Wilson’s Mrs. Doubtfire sequel thoughts below. READ FULL STORY

The speculation is over: Stephen Colbert is officially replacing David Letterman as host of CBS’ Late Show after the longtime host retires in 2015. #CancelColbert worked after all! (Kidding. This has nothing to do with angry tweeters… probaby.)
