Celebrities React to NASA's New Planet Announcement - Read the Tweets

NASA Announced on Wednesday (February 22) that they recently found seven Earth-sized planets around a star outside of our solar system – and three are in a habitable zone.

The “habitable zone” is the area around the parent star where a planet could have liquid water.

This discovery is a big deal because it now sets a record for the greatest number of habitable planets found outside of a planet. All seven could potentially have liquid water, which is the key to our survival on other planets under the right atmospheric conditions.

“This discovery could be a significant piece in the puzzle of finding habitable environments, places that are conducive to life,” Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator of the agency’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington, said in a statement. “Answering the question ‘are we alone’ is a top science priority and finding so many planets like these for the first time in the habitable zone is a remarkable step forward toward that goal.” Watch a video below to find out more info…

Someone Turned the Hollywood Sign Into the 'Hollyweed' Sign

It looks like someone is trying to send a message about legalizing marijuana to start off the new year as the Hollywood sign was changed to read “Hollyweed” on New Year’s Day!

The vandalism first started being reported at around 7am PT and photos of the altered sign are quickly spreading around social media. See photos of the new look in the gallery.

This isn’t the first time that the Hollywood sign has been vandalized. Back on January 1, 1976, the sign was also turned into “Hollyweed” and the same guy who did that changed it to say “Ollywood” years later.

Marijuana was legalized in California back in November when voters approved Proposition 64.

McDonald's Holiday Cups Might Be Considered NSFW to Some!

While people have been up in arms over the redesigned holiday cups at Starbucks, no one seems to have noticed the new holidays cups at McDonald’s that some might consider to be NSFW!

The image on the cup appears to look like butt cheeks being spread open. The words “warmest greetings” appear on top of the picture.

Twitter user Sam Sykes shared the photo of his holiday cup on social media this weekend and he has already been retweeted more than 13,000 times. He says he drew on the hands that appear on the cup.

“Now how the hell are Starbucks cups in the news again and no one’s talking about a guy spreading his cheeks open on McDonald’s cups,” he captioned the photo.

IMDb Sues California for Right to Publish Celebrity Ages

IMDb has filed a lawsuit against the state of California after legislation was enacted allowing actors to request to have their ages removed from subscription entertainment database sites.

The legislation was fought for by SAG-AFTRA and Governor Jerry Brown signed AB 1687 into law on September 24.

“IMDb shares the worthy goal of preventing age discrimination,” attorney John C. Hueston said in the complaint. “But AB 1687 is an unconstitutional law that does not advance, much less achieve, that goal. To the contrary, rather than passing laws designed to address the root problem of age discrimination, the State of California has chosen to chill free speech and undermine public access to factual information.”

“IMDb routinely and gladly updates information on IMDb.com in order to correct verified inaccuracies,” he added. “But it has always been IMDb’s policy not to alter or delete any accurate, factual information on the public website. Being compelled to do so not only violates basic free speech principles, but undermines the accuracy and reliability of the IMDb.com database on which millions of users rely.”

DO YOU THINK that IMDb should be allowed to post celebrity ages?
