She did NOT hold back!
Amy Schumer had an HBO special that aired on Saturday night, and the comedian wasn't interested in shying away from controversial topics and smart, opinionated rants!

The 34-year-old timed it perfectly, commenting in the wake of Jennifer Lawrence's essay on unequal pay via gender discrimination within Hollywood, and Schumer had some pointed criticisms about how there's a double standard among men and women in the entertainment industry:

We don't Belieb it!!
For Justin Bieber's 18th birthday in March, his manager Scooter Braun gave his favorite client an expensive sports car
so JB and Selena Gomez could sneak off to the backseat and play a few discrete rounds of "hide the Bieberoni"!!
For Scooter's recent birthday? Justin invited his manager on stage in front of thousands of screaming Beliebers at The Apollo Theater and… SMASHED a cake in his face!!!
Are you still mad about the time he denied your manliness?
You seriously need to ch-ch-check out the video (above) for the most HIGHlarious cake facial we've seen in some time!
We sincerely hope Justin gave Scooter a nicer present after the show ended — like maybe a gift certificate for "one free name change" at the local courthouse.
Or a few moist towelettes.

Last night, Justin Bieber held a private show at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, wrapping up his promotional tour around the world!
Towards the end of the night, however, something went terribly wrong!
It seems as though during Bieber’s last performance of Boyfriend, the power went out, shutting down the stage instruments and some of the show’s lighting for nearly 40 minutes!!!
Of course, this could never stop the Biebs from giving a SUPER swaggy performance — he asked his

Yesterday, Prince held a press conference at the Apollo Theater in NYC to announce his plan for a concert series in December. His Almighty Purpleness, who is billing the series as Welcome 2 America, told the audience that these concerts are " what we've all been waiting for: multiple nights of entertainment" that will begin "on a purple day in December 2010."
Though Prince didn't specify whether Welcome 2 America will be a tour or a run at one theater, but the artist insisted the show was for everyone. He told the crowd:
"Bring your friends, bring your children and bring foot spray, because it's going to be funky."
As for who'll be jamming with the Highness of Sound, the lineup includes Maceo Parker, singer Janelle Monae, Minneapolis funk band Mint Condition, multi-instrumentalist jazz singer Esperanza Spalding, Cassandra Wilson, Graham Central Station, and Sheila E.
Prince will serve as the master of ceremonies and perform with his band, the New Power Generation.
Nice! Sounds like fun! More deets, please!

The man hasn't done a movie since 2007… and he doesn't want to talk about it.
While at the Apollo Theater's 2010 Spring Concert and Awards ceremony Monday night, Chris Tucker was approached by a reporter and asked about any upcoming projects he might have.
Instead of offering an answer, he bolted for the door.
There are some that speculate that Chris' absence from the Hollywood scene stems from his desire to keep his quote up. Actor salaries are on the decline, and Chris wants to ensure he keeps bringing in $25 million paychecks like he did for Rush Hour. That theory makes him a greedy bastard.
Others suggest that because Chris received such big payouts for the Rush Hour franchise, Chris sees no need to work and devotes his time to helping out his many charities. That theory makes him a pretty decent bastard.
So, Chris, tell us - what kind of bastard are you???

Now, see, if you stopped canceling concerts, maybe you would have the $$$ for a new gown!
Aretha Franklin arrived at a benefit for the Apollo Theater last night looking awfully familiar.
Oh, that's right. She was wearing the same dress she wore two nights previous to the Tony Awards.
We hope she at least had it dry-cleaned between wears! Yuck!
She got a new wig though! Improvement!
