Taylor Swift is out. Samantha Barks is in.

A few weeks after the singer had supposedly landed the role of Eponine in the upcoming big screen version of Les Miserables - alongside such acting stalwarts as Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Sacha Baron Cohen and Anne Hathaway - Broadway World now reports the artist will be replaced in the film by Samantha Barks.

As seen below, that actress took on the same character in a 2010 tribute concert to the production, and was subsequently linked romantically to Nick Jonas.

  • Samantha Barks as Eponine
  • Taylor Swift  in London

Tweeted Barks soon after this announcement was made: "Most incredible moment of my life!!!!"

No word was given for the switch.

McDonald's is no longer using the controversial ground beef filler known as "pink slime," according to reports. That's the good news you can take out of this.

The bad? That crap was in all the ones you already ate.

Pink slime is not its real name, but it might actually sound more appetizing than the ingredients ... spare beef trimmings treated with ammonium hydroxide.

Delish.

The ammonium hydroxide is used to kill any bacteria in the trimmings. As revolting as it sounds, the additive is approved by the Department of Agriculture.

McDonald's move comes after celebrity TV chef Jamie Oliver brought it to public attention and vocally made calls for the restaurant chain to stop using it.

The company denied that its decision was influenced by Oliver, saying it stopped using the product months ago and had discussed dropping it for a year.

Either way, you may now return to eating at McDonald's ... if you want. The mere thought of pink slime may be sticking to your memory for awhile.

Scarlett Johansson's rep has brushed off recent rumors that she's dating Kieran Culkin or Justin Bartha, but it looks like she really is romancing somebody new.

The recently-divorced We Bought a Zoo actress, 27, is seeing an New York City-based advertising executive named Nate Naylor, a friend of the pair confirms.

"They've been dating for five months," the source adds.

You can see a photo of the two of them together here.

The actress's rep had no comment this time, but recent Scarlett Johansson photos show the happy couple strolling the Big Apple streets, holding hands.

Meanwhile, the home that Johansson and ex-husband Ryan Reynolds shared before they split up a little more than a year ago, is back on the market.

She dated Sean Penn for a few months after the split, while Ryan and Blake Lively have become a couple of late. An attractive one, it's worth noting.

Near the end of the final Harry Potter film, we see Daniel Radcliffe in makeup and prosthetics, signaling that the character has aged dramatically.

In real life, however, the actor needs no such accompaniments to prove he's not a kid anymore. Just consider what he recently told Heat Magazine.

D. Radcliffe

Asked about getting naked on stage in 2007 for Broadway's Equus, Radcliffe said about the fuss regarding his ample pubic hair:

"I was like, 'Yeah, of course I do!' I'm a Jewish man! We have hair down there."

The actor added that there's "not a huge amount of maintenance going on" in his genital region, while also saying that's how he prefers it on the opposite sex:

"This is way too much information, but I don't like girls with nothing down there either. It freaks me out. You have to have something, otherwise it's f-cking creepy."

Is it weird to hear Harry Potter's take on waxing? Yes. But there's good news, too: this means he'll never date Kim Kardashian.

Wanna watch the official music video for Nicki Minaj's latest track, "Stupid Hoe?" You better scroll down and press Play.

Because you won't find it on BET.

That network has banned the video, sources confirm to TMZ, and although no statement has been released regarding the decision, it's clearly based on the explicit nature of both the video (which features Minaj dancing in a cage and wearing a thong, along with other nearly-naked women and a monkey) and the lyrics themselves.

Which repeat the words "stupid hoe" about 10 times per chorus.

Check out the controversial video now and then vote in our poll.

Should BET ban this video?

Justin Timberlake turned 31 on the 31st. Yes, we're a day late, but we can't resist wishing the very best to the handsome, talented actor and singer!

JT is a rarity among celebrities these days.

Not only can he thrive in the spotlight but choose to shun it when it comes to his personal life, but his career seems to improve and diversify with age.

Justin Randall Timberlake

Breaking the mold of *NSync to become a credible solo artist was one thing. Becoming a big-time artist, producer and collaborator is quite another.

Then in his foray into acting, he became a veritable A-lister in that field as well, with roles in The Social Network, Friends With Benefits and In Time.

His SNL skits are among that show's funniest, no less. What can't he do!

The guy also gets engaged to Jessica Biel and doesn't tell anyone but his grandma. How cool is that? If you're the man, you don't need to flaunt it.

Happy birthday to the Tennessean! We look forward to following his career as always. Enjoy a little gallery of Justin Timberlake pictures in his honor:

Quick, prior to her recent breakdown, what did you know about Demi Moore? That she appeared in one of cinema's most iconic love scenes, married a younger man and was on great terms with her ex-husband, right?

That's not a lot of information, especially in this celebrity gossip culture, which is why one friend tells People magazine the actress is "embarrassed" by her hospitalization and subsequent 911 call release.

"Ego-wise, this is the worst thing that could happen to Demi, because she's such a private person," the source says.

Demi Moore for a Good Cause

However, Moore practices Kabbalah, a type of Jewish mysticism that is all about overcoming adversity. Her pal hopes this faith can lead to a major turnaround.

The star's downfall "can be an opportunity, a blessing, and not a curse," says the mole. "The right intervention happened in her life. From a spiritual sense, it is a gift. She has a real opportunity to grow from it. She has to take responsibility for her life."

Let's all hope she does exactly that.

The studio may be hoping for life beyond Breaking Dawn, but at some point The Twilight Saga will end.

As an actress who was a relative unknown prior to landing her role in that franchise, how does Ashley Greene feel about expanding her resume?

"I went from ‘dying to get a gig’ to dying to get the gig everyone wants," the beauty says in the latest issue of Lucky. "So now I’m in this realm with a lot of highly respected actresses, which is an amazing place to be, but also kind of terrifying.”

Up next, Greene will star in Butter, which hits theaters on March 16 and which features an intimate scene with Olivia Wilde.

What was that like? Share EVERY detail, Ashley.

“It wasn’t that awkward," she said. "It’s the same idea when you’re having to kiss a male costar and it’s not real. Olivia is such a cool chick and very professional. So we were just messing around and cracking up in between scenes, and it ended up being really fun... And now I’m the envy of every straight male everywhere!”

Yes. She sure is.

Life sure is a constant battle for Jenelle Evans these days.

After a drumstick beating of her roommate last week on Teen Mom 2, this week marked a turning point in her infamous breaking and entering and drug case.

She escaped with probation, which was good news, right? Yes and no. When you smoke weed every day (RIP Nate Dogg), probation is like a death sentence.

To find out what pissed Jenelle off (what doesn't) this week, and much more, let's get down to business in this week's Teen Mom 2 recap, THG's +/- style!

Jenelle Cries

Jenelle Evans' meltdowns really are becoming a weekly occurrence. This week's is a bit more understandable, given the stress of going to court and all.

Jenelle was sentenced to supervised probation, while boyfriend Kieffer Delp's own case was basically dismissed. Minus 17, because that spells trouble.

"Kieffer gets nothing," she yells. "It's no f--king fair I get put on probation ... I have to sit here and quit smoking pot for, like, a whole year!" BRUTAL! Plus 9.

Moreover, "And not get in trouble, or anything, or be around alcohol, or nothing!" Yes, Jenelle, that is how probation works. It's in lieu of jail. Minus 13.

Plus 6 for wearing a Victoria's Secret t-shirt and sweats to court though.

Kieffer tries not to gloat, but Jenelle screams, "You can go home and smoke a blunt right now!" Plus 15 because this is actually, like, a huge deal to Jenelle.

Sorority girls aren’t known for being nice, and they certainly weren't on TLC's latest show, which premiered last night. The premise of this new reality series?

Five American Sorority Girls attempting to establish Britain’s first ever sorority, Sigma Gamma. Obviously. We were wondering when we'd see such a thing!

When the girls are introduced to a new potential pledge named Claudia who is wearing short shorts, high heels and a fake tan, they rip her to shreds.

“I think when you’re first getting to know someone you don’t necessarily want to make judgments right off the bat,” one nice American mean girl says.

“But you can’t help it and sometimes you’re just like ‘oh that girl is looking a little slutty,’ but you never want to say that because that’s rude.” So ...

“Instead you just say she’s looking like a slooter cahooter,” the girl reasons, teaching British sorority hopefuls the right way to be bitches. Word.

TLC says in its synopsis that on Sorority Girls, “cultures will clash and girls will be judged and humiliated all for the sake of earning sisterhood.”

Brain cells and faith in humanity will also be diminished.
