Princes Harry and Charles visited Memphis to attend a wedding for a friend of theirs (they have real friends?). While in the area, the two toured the home of a real king, Elvis Presley’s Graceland. ’Merica! Go home, loyalists! Wait, the redhead can stay!

The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino supposedly banned actor and notorious table shark Ben Affleck for counting cards (although the casino “bosses” now say that’s not true). We’re sure this silly incident was all just one big method acting endeavor. Or that he’s visiting rehab very soon.

James Franco swears on his mother’s life he never had sex with Lindsay Lohan. His mother is very proud.

Instagram asked Rihanna to stop posting naked photos of herself on the app. Follow her on Twitter instead.

A bunch of fancy celebrities dressed up super fancy for an even fancier gala you will never go to.

All the gay points to Johnny.
