This Is What Happens When You Ask Bill Cosby About His Rape Accusations

Bill Cosby had very little to say after an Associated Press reporter tried to press him on-camera (Nov. 6) about rape allegations that surfaced against the comedian. Though the AP journo was persistent, Cosby offered no comment and asked that the portion of the interview would not be included after the Q&A wrapped. "Can I get something from you, that none of that will be shown?," he said. "I'm asking your integrity that since I didn't want to say anything but I did answer you, in terms of I don't want to say anything, of what value will it have ... I would appreciate it if it were scuttled." [Deadspin] The Steve Jobs biopic penned by Newsroom's Aaron Sorkin is now a rotten apple. Sony has reportedly pulled out of the project, which was set to star Michael Fassbender as the Apple Gawd and comedian Seth Rogen as company co-founder Steve Wozniak. The film was based on Walter Isaacson’s best-selling 2011 bio Steve Jobs. [Variety] Chris Hemsworth wasn't the first choice for People's "Sexiest Man Alive" title. A source says Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling and Jake Gyllenhaal were asked to bring sexy back but declined. The Internet's bae Gosling even reportedly turned down the offer multiple times. At least, we still have "Hey Girl" memes to drool over. [The Wrap] Love & Hip Hop is back in New York for Season 5. Erica Mena, Rich Dollaz, Yandy & Mandeecees, Peter Gunz, Tara and Amina, along with new faces like Chink Santana and Darryl Strawberry's daughter (whet?) will occupy a DVR near you on Dec. 15 on VH1.

Get More: Love & Hip Hop

The sequel for Pitch Perfect is perfection. This go-round, Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and the Bella babes are headed to the World Championships of A Cappella and no sing-off is complete without spot-on covers and Fat Amy lines. The Green Bay Packers also make a cameo. Watch the notes fly on May 15, 2015. [Jezebel]

Myspace Loses All Music Posted Before 2016

After losing the bulk of its users to other budding social media platforms, the once popular Myspace reportedly lost every single piece of content uploaded before 2016, including songs, photos, and videos, BBC reports.

According to Myspace, the site is blaming a faulty server migration for its large deletions, which is believed to have happened more than a year ago. This is when members started reporting that access to certain content older than 2016 was made unavailable.

More than 50 million tracks from 14 million artists have been lost, including music introduced by the "Myspace Generation." Beyond the music, pictures and videos stored on the server are nowhere to be found.

Though Facebook's craze led to a decrease in users, the rebrand, which centered around giving artists a place to build a platform, has been made virtually obsolete by years worth of content that's no longer.

Myspace published a statement on the site apologizing for the incident: "As a result of a server migration project, any photos, videos, and audio files you uploaded more than three years ago may no longer be available on or from Myspace. We apologize for the inconvenience and suggest that you retain your backup copies. If you would like more information, please contact our data protection officer.”

Comedienne Jess Hilarious Under Fire For Xenophobic Comments Toward Sikhs

Jess Hilarious came under fire Sunday (March 17) after she uploaded a video showcasing relief after four Sikhs were removed from her flight. The Lil Rel star defended her statements and said she was scared.

"If I'm scared I'm scared. F**k y'all. F**k how y'all feel," Jess said. "Y'all mad at me because I don't side with any other black person, because I don't side with every other race. F**k y'all. I feel how I feel. I felt threatened and that was it. F**k y'all, and I'm not flying there. We were evacuated, bitch. Why? Why? with no technical difficulties or nothing."

The Internet quickly sent the comic a digital side eye for her xenophobic comments, which came two days after 51 Muslim men and women were gunned down in New Zealand. The youngest of which was 3-year-old Mucaas Ibrahim.

Xenophobia is really disgusting.

The hate for Muslims is disgusting and Jess hilarious is trash and not worthy of a platform. https://t.co/qotZ9AwMLO

One Twitter user, a DJ who goes by the name DJ The Gypsy pointed out Jess' comments run rampant within other parts of the black community.

The backlash Jess merited did, however, highlight not everyone shared her sentiments.
