Selena Gomez fans need to settle down.

The former Disney darling gave her devoted fanbase quite the shock as she donned a fall risk bracelet and had a seemingly bandaged wrist in an image (above) promoting her new song, Bad Liar. Not to mention, as Selly G is one of the geniuses behind Netflix's teen drama about suicide, 13 Reasons Why, several of her followers assumed the A-lister's upcoming single would be about an attempted suicide.

Thankfully, the photographer for this controversial Selena shoot has since clapped back at fans who've jumped to any troubling conclusions. After sharing the pic on her own Instagram account, Petra Collins wrote:

A Bachelor Spin-Off For Every Season — ABC Green Lights The Bachelor Winter Games To Compete With The Olympics!

| Filed under: TV NewsMTVDisneyOlympicsReality TVThe Bachelor/ette

ABC might be reaching with this one.

Ahead of their upfront presentation on Tuesday, the Disney-owned TV network revealed that they're launching yet another Bachelor spin-off. And while the new reality program is still slated to have a love component, the recently announced show is actually a winter-themed athletic competition.

According to ABC, The Bachelor Winter Games "will reunite the all-stars at a luxurious winter resort, where they will go head-to-head in winter-themed athletic challenges, including the toughest sport of all: love."

OMG. STOP IT.

Also, does anyone else feel like the network totally stole this idea from MTV's The Challenge?? Hmmmmm.

Anywho, the spin-off is expected to drop in February as it will air opposite NBC's Winter Olympics coverage. We mean, that's not a bad way to hijack viewers from NBC. Not to mention, both Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss and longtime producer Martin Hilton have signed on to executive produce the show — so we KNOW it's going to be entertaining at least.

Still we have a feeling this spin-off could end in disaster, especially if past hyper-aggressive contestants *cough* Chad Johnson *cough* sign on for the series. We guess we'll just have to tune in to see how it all plays out!

Last summer, celebs performed the film's hit songs during a concert at the Hollywood Bowl, which featured Sara Bareilles as Ariel, Rebel Wilson as Ursula, Darren Criss as Eric, Tituss Burgess as Sebastian, and John Stamos as Chef Louis.

Titled The Wonderful World of Disney: The Little Mermaid Live, the special will soon cast a bunch of stars in the roles, and who knows, they might even have some of the Hollywood Bowl performers reprise their roles.

The Wonderful World of Disney: The Little Mermaid Live will air Tuesday, October 3.

Actual Pirates Are Holding Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 For Ransom! See Disney's Badass Response!

| Filed under: Legal MattersDisneyOrange is the New BlackNetflix

no title

Piracy usually involves someone stealing a movie or TV show then uploading and sharing it so everyone can watch it for free. Some even viewed it (incorrectly!) as a victimless crime.

Well, that facade is being torn away

At least, that used to be the case. In a bold and probably self-defeating move, hackers have reached out to Disney to tell them that they have a movie digitally downloaded in its entirety — and they're demanding a hefty ransom not to release it to the public in 20-minute increments.

In a real Mel Gibson move (early badass Mel, not drunken belligerent Mel), CEO Bob Iger declared during an ABC town hall meeting on Monday that the studio is refusing to pay. Then he poured Bitcoin all over the desk and said, "Take a good look. This is as close as you're ever going to get to it."

OK, that last part didn't happen.

Instead the company is cooperating with authorities to try and help track down the culprits.

Ironically, the film — which Iger did not mention by name — is reportedly Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which opens this Friday, May 19. And if it's released online this week, the box office could really suffer.

Weeks ago pirates made a similar threat to Netflix, who also refused to pay. The entire season of Orange is the New Black dropped on The Pirate Bay six weeks early.

We appreciate these companies standing up to these demands. We just hope the jerks get caught before they can make a trend of it!

Was Lauren Bushnell's Partying At Stagecoach The 'Final Straw' For Her Relationship With Bachelor Ben Higgins?

| Filed under: DisneyReality TVBreakupsThe Bachelor/ette

Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell

Oh, this is juicy!

As expected, more details have come to light surrounding Ben Higgins split from his fiancée, Lauren Bushnell!

While the two announced their breakup amicably in a pretty standard statement on Monday, it seems there's more to the story as ET reports The Bachelor pair "weren't seeing eye-to-eye on too many things and were arguing about everything lately."

And although the split "was coming for a little bit," it sounds like Lauren's partying at Stagecoach Music Festival at the end of April without her fiancé might've been the "final straw."

Damn! And Fox was already upset about having American Idol stolen from their dumpster! (What? They weren't using it anymore! Fine, from their attic then…)

But it looks like ABC isn't content to just take the iconic singing competition — they want the stars too!
