You wouldn't wanna mess with Sir Elton John.


Sir Elton who shares two children with his husband David Furnish is fuming mad over fashion designers  Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana over comments they made over same sex parents and babies conceived via artificial insemination.


The top designers who are also gay and were once a couple had made their remarks to Italian magazine Panorama which was published last week.


"The only family is the traditional one”, the designers said.


“We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one,” the pair are quoted as saying. "No chemical offsprings and rented uterus: life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed.”


"You are born to a mother and a father – or at least that’s how it should be,” Domenico states. "I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Uteri [for] rent, semen chosen from a catalog.


“The family is not a fad. In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging."


Of course, Elton John was quick to reply as he wrote on Instagram on Sunday: "How dare you refer to my beautiful children as 'synthetic'."


"And shame on you for wagging your judgmental little fingers at IVF - a miracle that has allowed legions of loving people, both straight and gay, to fulfil their dream of having children.


"Your archaic thinking is out of step with the times, just like your fashions.


"I shall never wear Dolce and Gabbana ever again. #BoycottDolceGabbana."


Today, the designers issued an official statement via Twitter saying, "it was never our intention to judge other people's choices."


"We do believe in freedom and love."


The feud is getting serious as the designers have also called for Elton John Boycott! Oh, this is totes dramz!


In a post Monday Gabbana shouted "Fascist!" and took direct aim at the singer: "#boycotteltonjohn". On his Instagram account, as you might expect, there was quite a lot of support for his criticism of Elton John among the hundreds of comments.


The fashion designer's rallying cry doesn't seem to have taken off. On Twitter about 1,500 people have tweeted #BoycottEltonJohn, with most influential tweets coming from Italians. A related hashtag, #SupportDolceGabbana, has around 2,700 tweets. But both are up against #BoycottDolceGabbana which has been used more than 35,000 times.

Ashton Kutcher is flying the flag for (hands-on) fathers recently.


The actor and new father has rocked the social media world once again in a very interesting topic that usually only mothers  complain about.


In a Facebook post, Kutcher criticized male public restrooms for rarely having diaper changing stations. Usually, diaper changing stations are installed in women’s public restrooms or family restrooms, but when there isn’t an accessible family restroom, this can cause problems for dads who need to change their child’s dirty diaper.


"There are NEVER diaper changing stations in mens public restrooms" , he tweets.


Kutcher promised that the first public restroom he finds with a changing station in the men’s room will get a shout-out from him on Facebook and since creating the post on Sunday, it has racked up over 220,000 likes, 8,900 comments and 8,000 shares. The new dad also included the hashtag #BeTheChange in his post, which was probably a poor choice considering it can be applied to almost any action.


We're with Ashton on this one , guys.  Now there's no excuse for new dads  not to take up diaper changing seriously.


Should we give the father of the year award now to Ashton? Give us a shout  on FACEBOOK and TWITTER!


So the jury says, they didn't want it, afterall.


Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams made history in music copyright infringement lawsuit when they were ordered Tuesday to pay up nearly $7.4 million to Marvin Gaye’s children.  This is  after a judge found that the duo copied Marvin Gaye’s music to create their 2013 hit single "Blurred Lines," the Associated Press reports.


"Right now, I feel free," said Nona Gaye, Martin Gaye’s daughter. According to the AP, she cried as the verdict was being read.


Gaye went on to describe how she felt free from "Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke's chains and what they tried to keep on us and the lies that were told," she explained.




Williams told jurors that while he listened to Marvin Gaye's music extensively as a child, although he didn’t use any of Gaye’s music to create "Blurred Lines".



Nona Gayes' lawyer, Richard Busch, argued that Thicke and Williams  blatantly copied Marvin Gaye's hit song "Got to Give It Up.”


Gaye's children -- Nona, Frankie and Marvin Gaye III -- sued the singers in 2013 and were present when the verdict was read.

So, the Queen of Pop has met her match, eh?


Kanye West doesn't need to vogue to get Madonna's seal of approval.  In fact, the one and only Material Girl revealed that Kanye is her male counterpart in the music industry.


‘Kanye is the new Madonna. Kanye is the black Madonna. We’re comrades in the envelope-pushing genre,’ Madge, 56, told the New York Daily News.


‘I always feel like I’m breaking some taboo, or coming up against something. People have always judged me, and given me s*** about one thing or another.’


Is she a big fan of the rapper? It looks like it as just a few days ago she described him as a ‘brilliant madman’.


She added: ‘I feel like the music business needs him, because everyone’s become so politically correct, so safe. I don’t always agree with the things he says or does – I don’t always like his music, even. But he’s a beautiful mess. I love him.’


Well we're sure the feeling is mutual,  Madge.

Stop the panic! Indiana Jones is ok and recuperating after a plane crash!


It might look like a scene from his adventure movies but Indiana Jones actor and Hollywood legendary actor Harrison Ford crash landed a small vintage plane at Penmar Golf Course in Venice less than two minutes after takeoff on Thursday afternoon.

The single-engine, Ryan Aeronautical ST3KR plane clipped the top of a tree before crashing shortly before 2:30 p.m. onto the golf course, just west of the Santa Monica Municipal Airport, according to Federal Aviation Administration officials. Ford was attempting to return to the airport due to engine trouble.


Ford was taken to UCLA Medical Center in Westwood in fair to moderate condition, Los Angeles Fire Department Assistant Chief Patrick Butler said. No other injuries were reported.

"These generally turn out quite traumatic, but I can report that the patient left the scene conscious and breathing," Butler added.


Ford's son Ben was also quick to tell fans about his dad's situation. He tweeted from the hospital that the Star Wars actor is  “battered but OK”.  In a follow up Ben Ford said,  “Thank you all for your thoughts and good vibes for my dad.”


Ford’s agency UTA also issued the following statement this evening. “Harrison was flying a WW2 vintage plane today which suffered engine failure upon take off,” they said. “He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely. He was banged up and is in the hospital receiving medical care. The injuries sustained are not life threatening, and he is expected to make a full recovery.”


Well, thank God for that! From all of us here at Hot Magazine, get well soon Harrison Ford and may the force be with you!
