This baby slays all
Ever since we allowed Blue Ivy to reintroduce herself at the MTV VMAs, I feel like the world has been a better place. Few things have brought me greater joy than those Vines of her dancing to Mama Beyoncé‘s Flawless. And now we have this amazing behind-the-scenes video that shows us some of the serious work that went into Beyoncé‘s Video Vanguard performance. But the best part is listening to Blue‘s sweet voice as she talks to her mom at the 3:48 mark. Peep the video for more!
Mrs. McConaughey, FTW
You know it’s been a special kind of day when it’s 8:30 PM, and your eyes are hella blurry. But… blurry eyes or no— we must talk fashion! I believe I am the only person in the universe who loved what Lena Dunham wore to the Emmy Awards… and I liked what Amber Rose wore to the VMAs. And on that note, I’m ducking out of here before y’all have the chance to disown me, LOL. Peep the gallery for more!
P.S. Okay, but my favorite dress that I’m not embarrassed to say I loved was Lizzy Caplan‘s—wowza! Oh, and Camila Alves who always slays all.

It's a ...
Last May it was rumored that actress Hayden Panettiere and fiancé Wladimir Klitschko got pregnant and today, we not only learn that the rumor is true but we also learn the sex of the couple’s baby … which was accidentally revealed on the red carpet of the 66th annual Emmy Awards last night. Hayden confirmed her pregnancy a few days ago when she accepted The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge but, as I understand it, intended to keep the sex of the baby private until it was born. While talking with E! News last night on the Emmys red carpet, Hayden accidentally let slip the sex of her incubating fetus. Click below to see Hayden rockin’ her bump on the red carpet and find out if she is having a girl or a boy. More »
"He made us laugh"
Last week we learned that comic/actor Billy Crystal was tasked with delivering the memorial speech for the late Robin Williams at the Emmy Awards this year and last night, he did just that. Billy‘s memorial to his dear friend Robin was heartfelt, funny and full of love. I had a feeling when he started speaking that his speech was going to make me cry … and it did. Click the embed above to watch Billy Crystal deliver this loving speech about his late friend … OUR beloved friend, Robin Williams.
While Beyoncé was busy SLAYING the MTV Video Music Awards with her amazing performance and family, mama-to-be Kelly Rowland was also in the building doing a little promo work of her own. Kelly walked the red carpet to show off her growing baby bump and as you can see below, she was a vision of beauty. Kelly was seated right next to Jay Z and Blue Ivy in audience and enjoyed a front row performance when Beyoncé was on stage … and therefore, got to see little Blue Ivy‘s performance up close, too. It really looked like Kelly had a great night last night. More »
But, Blue Ivy dancing to Mama Bey's music is something you need to see, too
A lot of things happened during the live broadcast of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards and, unfortunately, not a lot of it is really all that newsworthy or exciting. But MTV wisely decided to save the best for last and had Beyoncé close the show with a stunning 17+ minute performance of a string of hit songs before she was presented with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award — by her husband Jay Z and baby girl Blue Ivy! OMG. Bey‘s performance was EV.ERY.THIN.G IN. THE. WORLD. Just, g-damn, g-damn. Click the embed above to watch Beyoncé‘s epic VMAs performance and then click below to watch an animated gif of Blue Ivy dancing to Beyoncé‘s ****Flawless. OMG. I am slayed by that baby girl. Ugh.

LOOK at her!
For those of us who first experienced the magic of Betty White on The Golden Girls, it’s interesting to think that we’d already missed out on forty years of her career. I can’t even wrap my brain around how much work this person done over the years/generations—it’s astounding. And it really gets put into perspective with stories like this. People asked White about her first time at the Emmy Awards, in 1951, and her response was amazing. Click inside for more—and for a better look at that photo!
The two were longtime friends
This Monday the Emmy Awards will air on NBC, and I expect it to be a good show that will have its somber moments. There has been some speculation as to how the Robin Williams tribute might be handled, and it sounds like they have something interesting in the works. From the moment we learned of his death, there has been an outpouring from the entertainment world—I can’t really say I’ve seen anything like it before. Billy Crystal, a longtime friend of the late comedian, will lead the tribute, and I’m really looking forward to hearing what he has to say about Williams as a friend and collaborator.

Yes, I want this too.
Sometimes when I’m feeling a bit down, I do the most arrogant thing you could probably do and I go to my own Instagram page and scroll down, and remind myself that my life is awesome, my kids are cute, and I hung out with Crazy Eyes that one time and it was amazing. LOL, it feels so wrong, but it works every time. I friggen love Uzo Aduba, and I hope I get the chance to interview her again sometime. The actress just won her first Emmy at Saturday’s Creative Arts Emmys and—although she won for her role on Orange Is The New Black—she opened up about her vision for upcoming seasons of Scandal.
