With the Presidential election heating up, many celebrities are really voicing their opinion on who they like and don’t like. They’ve even done this by speaking out and some have even sign petitions. One thing many celebrities have recently signed is the anti-Donald Trump campaign that is located on MoveOn.org. These celebrities hope that by signing the petition they can inspire change.
There really are some big names that have joined the campaign including Bryan Cranston, Neil Patrick Harris, Macklemore, Kerry Washington, Julanne Moore, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Moore, Shonda Rhimes and Russell Simmons among many others. In total, there is rumored to be over 100 celebrities who have joined this campaign.
Whatever side celebrities pick, it’s nice to see them voice their opinion on a very important matter like the Presidential election. Kudos to them for trying to be heard.

Hollywood Stars Getting Into Drama
Posted on July 26, 2016, 1:10 am
Recently two big, but unsurprising names have gotten mixed up into more drama and even one arrest. It shouldn’t surprise you one bit that Lindsay Lohan is the one being caught on camera yelling at her fiancé, while it sadly isn’t surprising to see Katt Williams get arrested.
In a rather disturbing video, Egor Tarabasov, is being yelled at by the movie star. She claims that Egor strangled her. In the video you can hear her yell, “He just strangled me. He almost killed me…” She goes on a long rampage and kicks him out of the house in the video.
Katt Williams was arrested on Sunday morning on suspicion of battery while he was at the Studio City hotel in Los Angeles. He was arrested at 11am and was released on bail just five hours later. This isn’t his first time being arrested this year. He was arrested for disorderly conduct in March of this year.

Star Trek Beyond’s Great Opening at Box Office
Posted on July 25, 2016, 1:10 am
The latest Star Trek movie, “Star Trek Beyond,” had itself a great opening weekend, as experts estimate the movie brought in $60 million this past weekend. This movie is the 13th in the series and many think the series is continuing to go strong. Since this series “rebooted,” they have released three movies. “Star Trek Beyond” has fared the worst of the three by this point in their careers.
The second best movie of the weekend was “The Secret Life of Pets.” This flick brought in about $30 million, bringing its total to just over $250 million. Estimates say that the latest Ghostbuster movie and “Ice Age: Collision Course” only brought in $21 million, which was lower both had hoped. All together, the female-led version of Ghostbusters has fallen short of triple digits by about $10 million.
