'Cory reached out and he became a part of all of our hearts...'
Lea Michele has, in many ways, become the single name and face most associated with Cory Monteith and his passing. I can’t help but think this must be an enormous load to carry, especially in the public eye. Lea‘s opened up a bit while she’s been coping with the tragic loss of her boyfriend, sharing thanks to fans on Twitter, as well as photos from the set of the fifth season of Glee. Last night at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards, Lea won the award for Choice TV Actress, and dedicated the moment to Cory. It’s difficult to watch; you can really see Lea trying to hold it together. Check out the video above, and if you can’t watch it now click inside to read some of what Lea had to say.
Miguel's Girlfriend Was There... Sigh...
Earlier this week we learned that Selena Gomez had officially, officially hit the big time, scoring her first-ever number one album with Stars Dance. The pop star also hit the big time at this year’s Young Hollywood Awards, which were held in in Santa Monica, California. Walking away with the Fan Favorite Album award and the Most Anticipated Tour award, Selena had a great night. She rocked this beautiful Versace dress with some black Jimmy Choo sandals. Love the look. Other celebs attended the event, including newly-engaged Kelly Osbourne and Miguel– who brought along his ridiculously hot girlfriend Nazanin Mandi. Peep the gallery for more!

F--- Yeah Kerry Washington!!!!!!
The nominations for the 65th annual Emmy Awards just came in at 5:30 am Pacific Time and OMGeeeeee!!! It’s a great day to be a Gladiator! Our girl Kerry Washington is officially an Emmy-nominated actress! And she’s also the first black actress to be nominated for Lead Actress In A Drama Series since Cicely Tyson in 1995. That is insane. And let me just say that the BET Awards have been showing Kerry proper lurve since 2006, when she starred in movies like The Last King of Scotland and I Think I Love My Wife. It’s nice to see that, with the success of Scandal, the rest of the world is catching on to the amazingness that is K-Wash. I’m so happy for her, and I’m sure she’s somewhere celebrating like cray with her handsome new husband. Okay, and yes, lots of other people and shows got nominated this year (American Horror Story: Asylum leads the pack with 17 nods) so click inside for more!
Nicki Minaj, Kevin Hart, Beenie Man & R. Kelly All Came Through
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!
All Kinds Of Fabulousity
Earlier today we saw photos of Mariah Carey looking all kinds of fabulous at the 2013 BET Awards. But Mariah wasn’t alone– there was actually a lot of great fashion at last night’s event. Kat Graham looked pretty hawt, rocking Versace from head to toe, Ciara debuted a new video and stunned on the red carpet in this black, leather Saint Laurent number, and lots of other folks came through looking fab. Peep the gallery for more! Paula Patton, Eve, and Sanaa Lathan had some of my fave looks as well.

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!

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 . Click inside to read more and peep the gallery to see J-Lo and family on her big day! Sidenote: her twins looked adorable!
The Big Winner at the Fragrance Foundation Awards
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. She also made sure to officially launch her new fragrance Taylor by Taylor Swift. When her multi-tasking is taken in sum, it’s clear to see why she was selected as the Fragrance Celebrity of the Year for 2013. More »
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!

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.
