At just 18-years-old, Zendaya Coleman is a better woman than most.
The teen, who was not at all shy about checking Fashion Police host Giuliana Rancic when she made an insensitive comment about her Oscar dreadlocks, is ready to move on from it all. In an interview with Us Weekly, Zendaya proved that she had no ill-will towards the 40-year-old E! anchor, stating to the magazine:
“I just hope they learn and grow from it and are able to make a positive change with their show,” the 18-year-old told Us when asked about the return of the controversial show, which launched an epic scandal. “Hopefully [they’re] able to take a more positive spin and we’re all able to learn from it at the same time.”
Now that’s a class act.
Another day, another celebrity controversy.
Adam Sandler is coming under fire after the script of his new project The Ridiculous Six proved to be so offensive to Native Americans that 12 of them, serving as extras, walked off the set of the Netflix-produced project.
Gossip Cop reports:
The extras were outraged over jokes in the script that reportedly “insulted native women and elders and grossly misrepresented Apache culture.” Among the offensive jokes were the names of two Native American female characters, Beaver’s Breath and No Bra. One scene also called for a woman to urinate while smoking a peace pipe.
For its part, Netflix responded, simply brushing the issue aside for the sake of comedy:
“The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous,” a Netflix representative said. “It is a broad satire of Western movies and the stereotypes they popularized, featuring a diverse cast that is not only part of — but in on — the joke.”
Regardless of the outrage, Netflix has not stopped production of the project.
Baron Davis, mostly known for his ferocious dunks on the basketball court, is putting on another hat as the director of The Drew: No Excuse, Just Produce.
Located in South Central Los Angeles, the Drew League has been a harbor for the struggling community’s ball lovers and provides a place where “everyone is cool.”
The documentary, which also hinges on “Baron Davis’ very rural, intimate, yet triumphant story,” features cameos by L.A. natives such as Nick Young, Brandon Jennings, Dorell Wright, and Trevor Ariza.
The film makes its debut at the Los Angeles Film Festival, from June 10th-18th.

Entourage the movie is coming to a theater near you, and it looks promising.
The old gang is back to their usual shenanigans and as can be expected, nothing good comes out it. Vinny, played by Adrian Grenier, wants to direct, and that goes awry and jeopardizes everyone else’s career and the boys’ friendships.
Liam Neeson, Mark Wahlberg, Jessica Alba and Ronda Rousey all make cameos playing themselves, while Jeremy Piven, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara, and Kevin Connolly reprise their roles.
Watch the hilarious trailer above.
