Filed under: Tyra Banks

Want to know how to piss off an entire apartment building in New York City? Just ask Tyra!

The supermodel started remodeling her four apartment penthouse last May and almost a year later it's still not finished!

Residents at the Riverhouse were originally told a majority of the construction would be completed by October, but now that it's dragged on for another 6 months they want to be compensated as much as $100,000 for the noisy inconvenience.

They were, of course, denied.

Construction On Disneyland Shanghai To Begin THIS FRIDAY!!!

Filed under: DisneyBusiness Blitz

disneyland shanghai construction starts this week

Very exciting!

Way back in November 09, we learned that Disneyland Shanghai was officially a go!

Now, nearly a year and a half later, the Walt Disney Co. is finally ready to begin construction on the theme park!

On April 8, Disney CEO Bob Iger will oversee the beginning of construction on the $3.7 billion "initial phase of construction," which will "cover 1.5 square miles" and will include "a theme park and two hotels, and…additional 1.1 square miles for further development."

The park is currently scheduled to open in 2016 in China's Pudong district, and it will be the sixth Disney theme park to be launched around the world.

So cool! We can't wait to see it when it's completed!

Will U visit Disneyland Shanghai when it opens in 2016?

Madonna SUED After Malawi School Plans Fall Apart!

Filed under: MadonnaLegal MattersSad Sad

Oh no! This is a terrible development in an already unfortunate situation!

Madonna is currently being slapped with an unfair dismissal lawsuit from former employees of her Raising Malawi charity, now that plans for a new girls school in the country fell apart!

As we reported, the singer was hoping to build a $15 million development near the capital of Lilongwe, but was abandoned once reports surfaced that suggested that there was some financial mismanagement. Executive Director of Raising Malawi, Philippe van den Bossche, quit back in October, and now, the board of directors has been completely dismissed.

Now, however, eight pissed off employees have pressed charges, according to their lawyer, Mzondi Chirambo, who explains:

“Their employment was terminated by the trustees of Raising Malawi Academy for Girls ostensibly following the change of plan not to build the school as planned. My clients are also being forced to sign a discriminatory termination agreement before they are paid their benefits.”

Yuck! What a mess!

In return, Madonna has 14 days to respond to the allegations, but has also reportedly looked into filing a suit against those who caused the plans to collapse.

Such a shame that so much ill-will has come from something that was supposed to better so many young people's lives.

Here's hoping that they don't lose sight of that, and can reach some sort of amicable agreement.

Check Out Steven Spielberg's $200 Million Mega-Yacht!

Filed under: Steven Spielberg

Well, holy shiz. We guess it pays to be Steven Spielberg!

The iconic director was recently spotted sailing around St. Barth's and St. Maarten on this dinky little thing, AKA a $200 million mega-yacht called the Seven Seas!

Ch-ch-check out some pics (above and below)!

Yeah! More like the seven seas - and everything and anything in between!

The 282-foot monstrosity was built by Dutch shipyard Oceanco and designed by Nuvolari Lenard Design. It was modeled to Spielberg's specifications - which include an interior design scheme of walnut, teak and rosewood, as well as an infinity pool with a 15 ft. glass wall that doubles as an EFFING CINEMA SCREEN.

It accomodates 12 guests and a crew of 26, including a private owner's deck "centered on a large master stateroom with a study and private deck area with a jacuzzi."

And for good measure, there's a heli-pad, a fully equipped gym, a spa and massage room, and another indoor cinema!

Wait a second - so there's not a full production studio somewhere on that thing to produce his next flick? Because we can't imagine he'd ever want to leave that palace!

We certainly wouldn't! LOLz!
