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 .

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.

I, For One, Am Hoping For A 'We Saw Your Boobs' Sequel
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!
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.

'The Avengers' And 'Silver Linings Playbook' Win Big
Last night the 2013 MTV Movie Awards aired and the show was… fun. Not crazy-fun, not mind-blowingly fun, just fun. Rebel Wilson hosted and she was… fun… but got a little predictable at a certain point (PITNBr Sam, you called it). And while I did enjoy the show, I wasn’t especially excited to be there… watching from my couch, lol. Still, I’m glad I tuned in. Emma Watson, Will Ferrell, and Jamie Foxx were all honored with special awards for their contribution to the world of cinema, and it was really cool to see their bodies of work receive some recognition. As far as winners were concerned, it was all about The Avengers and Silver Linings Playbook. Click inside to see the full list of winners and nominees!
"I am here to give an award to someone that I admire"
Earlier this month we learned that Madonna would be appearing at the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards in NYC to present Anderson Cooper with an achievement award. Today, those of us who were not able to attend the GLAAD Media Awards are able to watch Maddy deliver her speech in full. Over the course of her 12-minute speech, Madonna railed against the homophobic practices of the Boy Scouts of America (while wearing a Cub Scouts uniform), spoke out against bullying, spoke out in defense of Pussy Riot and, at the very end, said some nice things about Anderson Cooper. Click above to watch video of Madonna‘s entire speech and/or click below to read a recap of what was said. More »
