Ellen DeGeneres to the rescue! Earlier this week a video showing an elderly bus monitor being bullied by a group of school kids went viral and caught the attention of DeGeneres and many other celebrities and news sources. The video showing Karen Klein being called names and threatened with violence prompted viewers to donate more than $420,000 to grandmother of eight. DeGeneres took to Twitter to shared her thoughts about this disturbing situation.

Barbarella is heading to the small screen. The iconic film, whose title character was originally played by Jane Fonda in the 1960s, will be getting a reboot by Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn. Who do you think should be cast in the title role? I’d cast Jennifer Lawrence or Tricia Helfer.

“I Kissed A Girl” songstress Katy Perry is on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter. Wouldn’t it be awesome/creepy if those weren’t Perry’s hands?
