Choreographer and dancer Emma Portner has called out Justin Bieber for the way she was treated after choreographing his Purpose World Tour in 2016.

"I regret working under your name," the 24-year-old, who is married to Ellen Page, said via her Instagram Stories. She put the I Don't Care singer on blast after his defence of Scooter Braun. 

"I gave your universe my naive body, creativity, time and effort. Twice. For content you made millions off of. While I made zilch," she captioned her post, according to PopCrave

She also claimed that the 25-year-old singer barely even paid her "minimum wage" for the hours of work she put in.

"I couldn't afford to eat. I was sweeping studio floors to be able to practice my own craft," she wrote. "The way you degrade women is an abomination."

The public post comes just two days after Taylor Swift called out the singer's manager, Scooter Braun, and the Biebs subsequently defended him on social media.

On Sunday, the 29-year-old ME! singer broke her silence on the "incessant" and "manipulative bullying" she said she endured from the music manager, who has clients ranging from Kanye West to Ariana Grande.

She also revealed that he would soon own her entire music catalogue, which made her feel "sad" and "grossed out." The explosive post went viral and many celebrities defended her, from Halsey to Miley Cyrus.

Ed Sheeran has claimed on Instagram that he's "been in touch with Taylor privately like I always do." However, a stampede of celebrities also defended Braun, including Bieber, Sia and Demi Lovato (who recently signed with him).

Bieber wrote to his Instagram to defend his manager against Taylor, writing;

"Scooter has had your back since the days you graciously let me open up for you. As the years have passed we haven't crossed paths and gotten to communicate our differences, hurts or frustrations. So for you to take it to social media and get people to hate on Scooter isn't fair."

He added, "What were you trying to accomplish by posting that blog? Seems to me like it was to get sympathy. You also knew that in posting that your fans would go and bully Scooter."

The Drew House founder definitely made his opinions clear about the Taylor and Scooter situation, but he hasn't commented on Emma Portner's claims as of yet.

It's only been a few weeks since Netflix released The Umbrella Academy, but already the show has garnered a fanbase of millions.

My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way's brainchild involves a group of children with special powers who must save the world from the apocalypse when they grow up, after their billionaire father dies.

Sir Reginald Hargreeves raised the kids, but they separated as time passed and they desired their freedom. His mysterious death reunites the strange family, and the plot thickens. 

43 babies were born where the women hadn't been pregnant when the day had begun, and an eccentric elderly billionaire buys seven of them. Of course, they've got the coolest POWERZ ever…

The acting is top notch, Gerard Way's comic book is brought to life with an emotional roller-coaster and some excellent stars such as Mary J. Blige and Ellen Page stealing scenes.

Fans are asking the right questions about the possibility of a season two;

We've officially fallen in love with the entire cast of quirky characters, but Klaus stole our hearts. Ireland's own Robert Sheehan plays the character, who can converse with the dead but numbs himself with alcohol and drugs to cope.

Another absolute LEGEND in the show is number five, played by Aidan Gallagher. The 15-year-old stunned audiences with his acting and maturity, playing a character who jumps through time and space.

Unfortunately, Gallagher shut down rumours about season two today, and we're more than upset.

He tweeted;

"While I have no doubts because I've been to the future (it sucks by the way)- no word from Netflix on a second season has been given to anyone yet. When it comes they will make it loud and headline clear to all."

However, GWW reported that the second season of The Umbrella Academy will be going into production at the end of 2019 in Toronto, so we're confused.

The publication are stating that Peter Hoar has signed on to direct the first episode. Hoar directed the pilot as well as episode 10 of the first season. We trust Aidan more than GWW, the kid has been to the future.

Aidan is the UN's youngest ever ambassador, and he campaigns for environmental and climate change action in politics as well as recording music, acting and going to school. He's literally the coolest 15-year-old ever.

Let's just rewatch the first season again and again while we wait for the announcement:

Meanwhile, here is an image of us staring into the abyss until we get confirmation of season two:

You may be familiar with some of Robert Sheehan's earlier work… or you may have just been introduced to him via the thirst trap of Netflix.

The Umbrella Academy has us all binge-watching the show 24/7, but Sheehan's character provides some eye candy for Twitter users of the modern day, who adore Klaus Hargreeves in all his hilarious, flamboyant and substance-abusing glory.

The Irish actor garnered attention back in 2009 when he portrayed lovable trouble-maker Nathan Young in E4's hit show, Misfits. The memes of his character's funniest lines still live on…

A stint on Love/Hate as Darren cemented his rising star status, and he has recently hit America, playing Simon in The Mortal Instruments film.

Now he's catching more than his fair share of eyes in Gerard Way's new dark superhero show; The Umbrella Academy. My Chemical Romance's former frontman has some serious talents.

Klaus' power is that he can hear the dead, which partially explains his insanity. The lad is high or drunk in every scene, and it makes for VERY entertaining content altogether…

We decided to check out what Twitter had to say about our lust-worthy Irish export, and it's fairly hilarious. The thirst trap has caught it's prey, you might say…Here are our fave reactions from the general public. Enjoy…

1. We ADORE that this video found true meaning when related to Klaus' gift:

2. "Don't stan the crazy white boy": A novel.

3.  THE FLAVAH:

4. "I only want happiness for him": 

5. THAT scene where he's jamming in his towel and Mary J. Blige rolls in:

6. Klaus and Ben together: the greatest combo of sass we didn't just need but deserved:

7. How oblivious Klaus is at ALL TIMES to any type of danger:

8. Lady Gaga-level of praise:

9. Official 'White Boy of the Month' category winner: 

10.  His phone calls to the dead aren't exactly eloquent:

11. Klaus + Ben = Our Heart

12. Some fans would even, dare we say it, DIE for him:

13. His self-care priorities are in order:

14. We're just so thankful to Gerard Way:

15. We CRAVE the crazy:

16.  The scene with his father's ashes had us whEEZING:

17. We just want to show our support:

18. His fear of ghosts is so damn pure:

19.  The resemblance to his old character of Nathan Young in Misfits is uncanny:

20.  Finally, the statement we all know to be true:

Is that all the Klaus Netflix can offer us? We won't rest until we see more of his beautiful face and hilarious quotes.

Congrats on another winning role, Robert Sheehan. You've only gone and set another thirst trap, and we've all fallen into it head first.

Guardians of the Galaxy actor Chris Pratt has hit back at Ellen Page after the actress called him out for attending an alleged "infamous anti-LGBTQ" church.

The Juno star criticised Pratt on February 8 after his appearance on The Stephen Colbert Show, questioning why he didn't address Hillsong's 'infamous' views.

She later elaborated on her frustration, writing on Twitter;

“If you are a famous actor and you belong to an organisation that hates a certain group of people, don’t be surprised if someone simply wonders why it’s not addressed. Being anti LGBTQ is wrong, there aren’t two sides. The damage it causes is severe. Full stop."

She continued her emotional statement;

“If LGBTQ+ people are expressing their pain, their trauma, their experiences… maybe just try and listen? Open your heart, stop being defensive and have compassion. It’s a beautiful and life changing feeling, empathy.”

The 31-year-old is married to Emma Portner since last January, and made an impassioned speech on The Stephen Colbert Show accusing Donald Trump and Mike Pence of continued dangerous discrimination against the LGBT+ community.

“I am fired up tonight, it feels impossible not to feel this way right now, with the president and Vice President Mike Pence, who wishes I couldn’t be married. Let’s just be clear. The Vice President of America wishes I didn’t have the love with my wife.”

Now Chris Pratt has responded to her claims about Hillsong, a celebrity-infused church in Los Angeles which has faced controversy over it's views.

Pastor Carl Lentz, who leads its New York branch, in 2015 said that he believes homosexuality is a sin and that a gay member of the church could never hold a leadership position. He claims that the church opens its doors, but doesn't encourage the 'gay lifestyle'.

Pratt took to Instagram writing: “It has recently been suggested that I belong to a church which ‘hates a certain group of people’ and is "infamously anti-LGBTQ." Nothing could be further from the truth."

He continued; “I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone.” He elaborated on how the Hillsong community helped him through his divorce with actor Anna Faris.

“Despite what the Bible says about divorce my church community was there for me every step of the way, never judging, just gracefully accompanying me on my walk,” Pratt said.

“They helped me tremendously offering love and support. It is what I have seen them do for others on countless occasions regardless of sexual orientation, race or gender.”

We'll have to wait and see if Ellen Page answers his statement.

Ellen Page is known for being an absolutely unreal actress, and all-round lesbian ledgebag.

Literally, she's queen of the gays. Did you SEE her speech on the Stephen Colbert US chat show about Vice-President Mike Pence's homophobia? We had chillz. They're multiplying.

The Juno actress has now called on Guardians Of The Galaxy star Chris Pratt to address his church Hillsong’s attitude towards LGBTQ people.

The newly engaged Chris Pratt spoke about his ‘spiritual side’ on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, ironically the show that Ellen made her badass speech on, and she had some words to say about it.

The 39-year old Jurassic World actor is admittedly very religious and identifies as a non-denominational Christian, attending services at the Zoe Church and Hillsong, also attended by Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin.

Replying to Pratt's comments, Ellen wrote to Twitter; "Oh. K. Um. But his church is infamously anti-LGBT+ so maybe address that too?"

Page has just celebrated her one-year-anniversary with her wife Emma Portner last month, and famously speaks out against homophobic attacks like the recent horrible incident involving Empire actor Jussie Smollett.

In 2015 Brian Houston, leader of Hillsong, has said that while gay people are welcome to worship there, and that he loves all people, Hillsong doesn’t ‘affirm’ the gay ‘lifestyle’. Whatever the heck that means.

"Hillsong Church welcomes ALL people but does not affirm all lifestyles. Put clearly, we do not affirm a gay lifestyle and because of this we do not knowingly have actively gay people in positions of leadership, either paid or unpaid."

"Can you take an active leadership role? No. ‘This won’t make everyone happy and to some, this stance may even be seen as hypocritical. We are a gay welcoming church but we are not a church that affirms a gay lifestyle." Alright then…

Famous pastor of Justin Bieber, Carl Lentz, said he admits he doesn’t know what Jesus would think about homosexuality, saying:

"Jesus was in the thick of an era where homosexuality, just like it is today, was widely prevalent. And I’m still waiting for someone to show me the quote where Jesus addressed it on the record in front of people. You won’t find it because he never did." 

Pratt spoke on the show about how his church helps him to deal with fame, and has yet to respond to Ellen's tweet.

2018 may have only just begun, but the new year has already brought heaps of positive celeb news.

Between pregnancy announcements and romantic engagements, the stars of Hollywood seem more loved up than ever and Ellen Page is the latest to share some exciting news.

In a sweet Instagram post, the Juno actress revealed that she and partner, Emma Portner, have taken their relationship to the next level and tied the knot.

“Can't believe I get to call this extraordinary woman my wife. @emmaportner,” she wrote.

She also shared a snap of the couple's wedding rings as well as a gorgeous black and white photo showing the pair in a loving embrace.

Sharing the same images on her own Instagram account, Emma wrote a similar message: “I get to call this incredible woman MY WIFE! @ellenpage I LOVE YOU!”

Ellen Page came out publicly at the Human Rights Campaign's Time to Thrive conference in Las Vegas in 2014.

Speaking to the audience she said: “I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission, I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered, and my relationships suffered.”

“And I'm standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain.”

Her followers were quick to congratulate her on the joyous news.

“Congratulations Ellen! All the love and happiness to both of you,” one user wrote.

What an amazing way to kick off the new year!

Miley Cyrus has released a new balled – and it's a stunner that'll remind you just how talented Miley is when you peel back the layers of outrageous outfits and tongue-wagging.

The emotional piano ballad, Hands of Love, sees Ms Cyrus shouting out a cry for equal rights. The song is also inspired by and pays tribute to the real-life heroes who inspired new Hollywood movie, Freeheld

The film stars Ellen Page and Julianne Moore as a lesbian couple fighting for domestic partner rights. Miley channels their fight, singing, “In the hands of love, we carry on/Stronger than we started.”

In other words, yes, this Linda Perry-penned tune is a far cry from Miley's weird and trippy Dead Petz album, and we secretly hope she'll sing more songs like this one in the future.

It’s been almost two months since Ellen Page delivered an inspirational speech where she came out as a gay woman.

However, it wasn’t always easy for the actress and as she explains to Flare magazine, it took her a while to accept herself: “You think you’re in a place where you’re all, ‘I’m thrilled to be gay, I have no issues about being gay anymore, I don’t feel ashamed about being gay,’ but you actually do.”

The actress continued to say that she felt awkward around gay people because she wasn’t proud of who she was: “I felt awkward around gay people. I felt guilty for not being myself.”

Ellen will be reprising her role as Kitty Pryde in the highly anticipated upcoming movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past.

The Juno star publicly came out while speaking at an event in Las Vegas to promote the welfare of the LGBT community, saying: “I’m here today because I am gay. And because maybe I can make a difference. To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility.”

The Canadian actress added: “It’s weird because here I am, an actress, representing—at least in some sense—an industry that places crushing standards on all of us. Not just young people, but everyone.

After coming out, the actress thanked her fans for their support, saying: “Just wanted to take a moment to say how moved I am by all the support. I feel profoundly grateful right now. xxxx.”
