Janice Freeman, Former ‘The Voice’ Contestant, Dies at 33

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Janice Freeman, a contest from Season 13 of NBC’s “The Voice,” died Saturday from “complications of lupus and a bronchial infection,” the singer’s family announced on Facebook. She was 33.

“We are heartbroken to confirm the news that Janice Freeman unexpectedly passed on to a much more glorious incarnation yesterday,” reads the post on her official Facebook page. “Doctors believe a blood clot had formed in her lungs, which led to her quick demise.”

Freeman — whose health issues had included lupus, meningitis and cervical cancer — was at home in Pasadena with her husband Dion Saturday when she complained that she was having trouble breathing. He performed CPR until the arrival of paramedics, who transported her to the hospital, where she later was pronounced dead.

Several months ago, doctors had inserted a port-a-cath to ease her ongoing lupus treatments, but her immune system continued to remain depressed, with even common colds threatening more serious repercussions.

“She struggled every single day,” Dion said. “She was constantly in pain – literally, for years – but was sure she would conquer it all. She just kept on fighting.”

Freeman is also survived by her 12-year-old daughter, Hannah.

Mr Skin Parent Company Sued Over Miley Cyrus Easter Bunny Spanking Photo

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

The people behind celebrity nude-scene site Mr. Skin have been accused of nakedly filching other people’s material for their own gain.

SK Intertainment, the parent company of Mr. Skin, Egotastic, WWTDD and other websites was slapped with a copyright infringement lawsuit alleging the wrongful use of a number of photos, including a photo of “Party in the USA” singer Miley Cyrus being spanked by the Easter Bunny.

In the suit, filed in federal court in California on Wednesday, photo agency Creative Photographers, Inc. [CPI] and photographic syndication company Lickerish allege that SK Intertainment infringed on the copyrights of a number of photos featuring Cyrus, Nicole Kidman and “Better Call Saul” star Rhea Seehorn.

“Defendant Mr. Skin also owns and operates the website www.egotastic.com which is the ‘leading online celebrity and entertainment destination site for the male audience 18-49’ and specializes in celebrity gossip,” the suit reads. “On information and belief, the site also gets 10 million monthly unique visitors and features extensive advertising. Additionally, Mr. Skin owns and operates the website www.wwtdd.com which provides ‘salacious’ content and gossip, mostly on celebrity women, and also features extensive advertising.”

The suit continues, “Defendants used the CPI Photos and the Lickerish Photos to drive interest to their subscription access website, www.mrskin.com, and to increase the potential for more subscriptions, as well as ad sales to both Mr.Skin.com, Egotastic.com, and wwtdd.com. Thus, Defendants acted with the purpose and goal of financial gain, despite being sophisticated parties, with full knowledge of the strictures of federal copyright law and the basic requirements for licensing the use of copyrighted content for commercial exploitation.”

The suit contends that that the defendants are well familiar with licensing requirements, given that they “are sophisticated parties who depend on the many licenses granted to them by major studios, including Universal and Fox, to publish and distribute nude or revealing clips of women from their films. “

The lawsuit also cites reports that Mr. Skin has licensed the use of its trademark for the 2007 Seth Rogen-Katherine Heigl film “Knocked Up.”

“As such, Defendants fully expect users of its intellectual property to seek authorization from them when exploiting their intellectual property,” the suit reads. “As such, Defendants actions are particularly wanton, willful and in knowing disregard of Plaintiffs intellectual property rights. “

TheWrap has reached out to SK Intertainment for comment on the suit.

Exhibits for the suit cite multiple alleged infringements, in posts bearing titles such as “Nicole Kidman Sexy in the Water for Stellar” and “Miley Cyrus Spanked by Easter Bunn…ZZZZZ.”

The Cyrus picture was one of a number of photos taken of he singer taken by photographer Vijat Mohindra and published by Vogue last year, and which Creative says are in its library.

The suit is asking that the defendants be enjoined by the court from infringing on the plaintiffs’ copyrights, as well as unspecified damages.

While you’re all busy debating the merits of playing “Baby It’s Cold Outside” in 2018, Miley Cyrus went to work revising the lyrics of another outdated Christmas classic: “Santa Baby,” which she debuted on the “Tonight Show” Thursday.

Her version includes solid lines, like: “Listen Santa to what I say/A girl’s best friend is equal pay.”

And these closing bars:

Santa baby, I’d love to know my ass won’t get grabbed
At work
By some ignorant jerk
Tell the dirtbags, to put away their chimneys tonight

Santa, baby, I hear you’ve got some presents
For me, Miley
I’ve been an awfully good girl,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa, baby, I don’t fancy any fancy jewelry, not me
I’ve got something else in mind
Santa baby, and I don’t need your presents tonight

Don’t want diamonds, cash or stocks
Nothing that comes in a box
No more fluff, I’ve had enough
And I can buy my own damn stuff

Santa baby, I’ve got a baller car of my own,
No loans,
And I bought it myself
Santa baby, with zero help from Elf on the Shelf

Listen Santa to what I say
A girl’s best friend is equal pay
Stop interrupting me when I talk
And don’t text me pictures of your –

Santa baby, I’d love to know my ass won’t get grabbed
At work
By some ignorant jerk
Tell the dirtbags, to put away their chimneys tonight

Sorry, Santa
Just put away your chimney tonight!

Just put away your chimney tonight!
