Reggae Music Really Does Make Life Happy, And Other Lessons Learned From The 2013 BET Awards

Nicki Minaj, Kevin Hart, Beenie Man & R. Kelly All Came Through
The 2013 BET Awards

So. Last night the 2013 BET Awards went down and it was all kind of a huge deal. The fashion was fab, Mariah Carey was Mariah Carey, and there was a reggae tribute that was almost as dope as my Throwback Thursday… except yeah okay, maybe their’s was better because Beenie Man was actually there in person, lol. Anyway, it was a blast! I cannot believe there were people out there saying they were bored. Between the reggae, the Charlie Wilson tribute, Justin Timberlake, the friggen R. Kelly medley and the fact that Erykah Badu performed twice, I just don’t see what the problem was. I had a blast! Click inside for a little recap of last night’s show!

Mariah Carey Stuns In A Diamond-Encrusted Gown At The 2013 BET Awards

Blinged Out

So, last night the 2013 BET Awards were held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California, and I thought the overall event was really fun. I’ll be recapping the show later, but in the meantime I had to post these pictures of Mariah Carey in this stunning diamond-encrusted gown. All everyone has been talking about is whether or not Mimi was lip-synching (which she was recently accused of during her American Idol performance), but I was sooo distracted by this dress I couldn’t tell you either way, lol. I’m still trying to figure out who the designer is, but you just gotta see how fab she looked during her performance. She also Instagrammed an awesome black & white pic with hubby Nick in the background. Peep the gallery for more!

Jennifer Lopez Gets A Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

The 2,500th

I love stories like this one because it’s so easy to forget that many celebrities still have these exciting milestones to achieve. Somehow, Jennifer Lopez– actress, singer, former Fly Girl, etc.– is just now receiving her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! How does that happen?! I dunno– but I’m excited that she’s officially a star! Yesterday, Jenny from the Block received the 2,500th star on Hollywood Blvd, and rocked a beautiful Christian Dior ensemble to the event .

Earlier today we saw stunning photos of Taylor Swift at the 41st annual Fragrance Foundation Awards last night and right now we learn that she was not only at the ceremony to look good, she was also there to collect a major award. Taylor was honored with the Fragrance Celebrity of the Year award last night for the successful launch of her first perfume Wonderstruck.

Taylor Swift And Dita Von Teese Rock The Red Carpet At The 2013 Fragrance Foundation Awards

Two Equally Fly Looks

Both known for rocking a red carpet in their own unique way, Taylor Swift and Dita Von Teese turned heads at the 2013 Fragrance Foundation Awards. Taylor wore this stunning, white silk Emilio Pucci gown (which I prefer to her last red carpet look, though I loved seeing her back in Elie Saab), and Dita also wore silk, keeping things sexy in a a champagne-coloured Maria Lucia Hohan. I think that both ladies look amazing, but if I had to pick one dress it’d be Taylor‘s. Sadly, I simply do not have the rack to rock Dita‘s look. But gawd, she is doin’ the damn thang… LOL! Peep the gallery for more!

Dan Savage Named The 2013 ‘Humanist Of The Year’ By The American Humanist Association

Congrats!

Author/speaker/all around cool guy Dan Savage was on hand at an award ceremony in San Diego, CA last night to receive the 2013 Humanist of the Year award presented to him by the American Humanist Association. The AHA is a nontheistic organization that seeks to bring about a progressive society where being good without belief in any god-system is an accepted way of life. Among the tenets of the AHA is a drive for the defense of civil liberties and secular government as well as the advancement of the humanist viewpoint. Savage has long been a champion of nontheistic thought and through his work for GLBT youth, sex-positive writing and the advocacy of the separation of church and state he was deemed the most deserving person to be named Humanist of the Year for 2013. My good friends Emma and Josh were in attendance at the 72nd annual conference of the American Humanist Association last night for this award ceremony and share the photo of Dan and his award below.

Seth MacFarlane Has Reportedly Been Asked To Host The Oscars Again

I, For One, Am Hoping For A 'We Saw Your Boobs' Sequel
HBO's 70th Annual Golden Globes After Party

This year the Academy Awards show was hosted by Seth MacFarlane, and it ended being kind of a big deal. I was one of a few feminists (it seemed) who was totally fine with the work he did, and totally entertained by much of his schtick, including– but not limited to– the now infamous We Saw Your Boobs song. Of all the acts of misogyny in the world and in the media, I thought Seth‘s hosting gig would have been the least of our concerns (and again, I didn’t find it misogynistic at all, though many people did). And bottom line for me, he was funny. He was entertaining! And lots of people got through the long-ass ceremony that is the Oscars because of him. Thus, I happily rejoice over the news that he’s being asked to come back and host again next year. Click inside for more!

Celebrities Arrive At The 2013 MTV Movie Awards

Will Ferrell Wins Best Dressed.

Earlier today we checked out the winners and nominees from last night’s MTV Movie Awards. As I said, I wasn’t that impressed with the actual show, but the fashion is always fun so I was psyched to see what everyone rocked on the red carpet. Kerry Washington had one of my favorite looks of the night (I know– surprise, surprise), and Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss and Emma Watson also looked pretty fab. Peep the gallery for more! Oh, Will Ferrell also looked awesome… lol.
