Taylor Swift has reportedly donated 50,000 dollars to New York City public schools. The singer had previously pledged to give the proceeds from her song, "Welcome to New York," to the city's kids. Swift recently made a move to the Big Apple from Nashville and currently resides in the city's Tribeca neighborhood. Paul Reubens has singed on for a new Pee-wee Herman film to be released on movie-streaming service Netflix. Production on the film is scheduled to start in March. Produced by Judd Apatow, the movie will see Pee-wee taking his first ever holiday. The last two Pee-wee Herman films were released in 1985 and 1988. Zendaya Coleman has taken to Instagram, responding to, what she called an "ignorant slur," about her hair on Oscar night. The actress defended herself after a host of the fashion critique show "Fashion Police" said her hair looked as if it smelled of "patchouli oil or weed." Coleman wrote that the comments were "not only a large stereotype but outrageously offensive."
