  • PEOPLE ARE PISSED THAT ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY SPOILED 'GAME OF THRONES'

    This week's issue of Entertainment Weekly features Kit Harington on the cover and many people are pissed that it reveals the fate of Jon Snow which was addressed on Sunday's (May 1st) episode of Game of Thrones.

    The magazine typically unveils its covers the day before they hit newsstands on Fridays but Kit's cover was posted to their website on Monday (May 2nd) along with the headline "He's Alive!" written in large font. It didn't take long for the cover to make its way to social media and the backlash to begin.

    • Kit says in the accompanying interview, "It's a massive season for Jon. It's his biggest season for him so far." He also apologizes for the months of speculations and lies about the characters fate saying, "Sorry. I'm glad that people were upset that he died. I think my biggest fear was that people were not going to care. Or it would just be, 'Fine, Jon Snow's dead.' But it seems like people had a, similar to the Red Wedding episode, kind of grief about it."

  • HULK HOGAN IS SUING GAWKER MEDIA AGAIN

    The fight between Hulk Hogan and Gawker Media may be starting all over again. He has filed a new lawsuit accusing the company of leaking a transcript of his racist rant that were part of sealed court documents from their sex tape case.

    The recording was made in 2007 while Hogan was discussing his daughter's relationship with his sex tape partner, Heather Clem. National Enquirer quoted the former WWE star as saying, "I mean, I'd rather if she was going to f*** some n****r, I'd rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n****r worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player! I guess we're all a little racist. F***ing n****r."

    • The new lawsuit claims that the leak resulted in his income being cut off and his global brand being tarnished forever.
    • Gawker has denied being responsible for the leak but the suit also alleges that they had threatened to release the transcripts for months before they were finally published. Gawker CEO Nick Denton even posted a blog entry about how Hogan's "real secret" would be coming to light shortly and editor A.J. Daulerio tweeted a link to the Enquirer story to him along with "XOXOXO."
    • Hulk is also targeting Florida residents whom he believes sent at least one of the sex tapes to Gawker.
    • It is unclear how much he is seeking in the new case.
    • He was awarded $140 million against the company back in March for posting the sex tape.

  • KERRY WASHINGTON TALKS MET GALA BUT STAYS MUM ABOUT PREGNANCY RUMORS

    Kerry Washington appeared on Good Morning America on Monday (May 2nd) in anticipation of the 2016 Met Gala which was held in New York City last night. The Scandal star spoke about preparing for the big event but did not address the pregnancy rumors that started after she sported what appeared to be a baby bump at the White House Correspondents Dinner over the weekend.

    Kerry said, "I think for me this night is really strictly about fashion. A lot of other events...the Oscars are about film-making, the Emmys are about excellence in television...but this night is really about fashion as art and celebrating the Met and celebrating the history of great fashion and how it fits into our context of American art/international art."

    • She also went on to offer some tips on picking an outfit saying, "You have to be able to touch your own lipstick and wear a dress you can eat in."
    • This year's Gala theme was Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.

    MET GALA HIGHLIGHTS:

    • Co-chair Taylor Swift walked the red carpet wearing Louis Vuitton. Her look has drawn comparisons to The Pretty Reckless singer and former Gossip Girl actress Taylor Momsen.
    • Sarah Jessica Parker was one of the first celebrities mocked on social media with comparing her look to Lin-Manuel Miranda as Alexander Hamilton in Hamilton.
    • Kate Upton confirmed her engagement to Justin Verlander on the red carpet where she showed off her engagement ring.
    • Karolina Kurkova wore a Marchesa gown that had lights which changed colors as people reacted to it on social media.
