"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.

So, remember last week when we learned that David and Victoria Beckham‘s eldest son, Brooklyn Joseph, was reportedly dating actress Chloë Grace Moretz? Well, it would appear that the couple confirmed the rumor yesterday when they arrived at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards together. Brooklyn (who is growing into the spitting image of his father, I might add) and Chloë stepped out onto the red carpet yesterday and kinda tried to not look like they were together even tho they were totally together. It’s crazy! I remember when these two were just babies … now they’re grown tweens in an actual Hollywood relationship. Like, what?!?! More »
Taylor, Selena, Zendaya, and more lit up the red carpet
I didn’t catch last night’s 2014 Teen Choice Awards, but judging by the red carpet fashion choices, I’m going to assume the event was pretty fabulous. Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Zendaya Coleman, Hilary Duff, Nina Dobrev, and many others rocked the red carpet—so you have a lot of looks to choose from here. Ms. Gomez is rocking a look I hope to one day perfect, but I have to go with Taylor Swift because OMG. And PITNBr ClaireMichelle, I take back what I said about Nina Dobrev. Taylor Swift is my new Taylor Swift, lol. Peep the gallery for more!

An "epic" performance is also promised
MTV announced today that pop superstar Beyoncé will be honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, which will air LIVE on MTV on August 24. As you may know, the Video Vanguard Award has been awarded previously to music video legends like Britney Spears … and other people not as important as our dear Britney (ok, ok … just kidding … other award recipients include Michael Jackson and Madonna — who are way just as important as Britney). MTV also promises that Bey will deliver an “epic” performance during the VMAs telecast this year so … it sounds like we will all DEFFO have to tune in. You may recall that Beyoncé announced her pregnancy at the MTV VMAs back in 2011, so she’s got mad love for the awards show. Clearly, the feeling is mutual. The MTV VMAs will air LIVE from The Forum in SoCal on August 24.
