She Brings Home her First NAACP Image Award
Earlier today we got to see a few photos of the pregnant and lovely Scandal star Kerry Washington at the 2014 NAACP Image Awards, which were handed out in Pasadena, CA last night. Right now we get to see photos of the non-pregnant but just-as-lovely 12 Years A Slave actress Lupita Nyong’o at the Image Awards last night. Like Kerry, Lupita walked home last night with an award after she won the Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture award for her work in 12 years. Naturally, Nyong’o looked amazing on the red carpet, as the photos in this gallery can attest. I just cannot get over the ease with which Lupita makes looking perfect seem so, well, easy. She is constantly without flaw. Her styling choices, her make-up, her hair, her poise … it’s almost superhuman. I am dying to see what she will wear to the Academy Awards next weekend. She is going to slay us all, you just wait and see.

And she brought home an award trophy
Kerry Washington, lookin’ radiantly pregs, made an appearance at the 45th annual NAACP Image Awards at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, CA last night to attend the awards … and walk home with the award for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series for her work on the ABC series Scandal. As you can see in the photos presented in this gallery, Kerry looked utterly amazing in a custom dress that was designed for her by Thakoon. As you may recall, Shannon reminded us a few days ago that Scandal is returning from its winter hiatus with new episodes this coming week (we saw the first new promo video for the new eps HERE) … but before the return of Scandal, Kerry had a make a stop at the Image Awards last night to collect her trophy, lookin’ fine as can be. Enjoy the photos, she looks amazing.

Katy Perry was among the artists who performed on the 2014 BRIT Awards in London tonight (like Beyoncé, like Lorde) and for her musical selection, she chose her current single Dark Horse. Katy is just about to release the Egyptian-themed music video for Dark Horse but before she does so, she wanted to unleash upon the world her day glo Egyptian-themed performance at The BRIT Awards. Click the embed above to watch Katy perform Dark Horse and see how she well she did. Be warned, there is a lot of neon and flashing lights in this performance, sunglasses might be a good idea.
Earlier today we got to see video of Beyoncé performing XO for the first time ever on the 2014 BRIT Awards which took place in London today and right now we get to see a mash-up performance by Lorde and Disclosure from The BRITs. Lorde performed a sexy remix version of her megahit song Royals and was followed by Disclosure‘s performance of their song White Noise. PERSONALLY, I would’ve loved it if Lorde had performed her current single Team (my fave song from her album) but I’m a big Lorde fan, so I’ll take another performance of Royals … I guess. I’m not entirely familiar with Disclosure but I do like White Noise. This mash-up performance turned out pretty well. Check out the video performance above and see what you think. Do you like?
"Your love is bright as ever"

"We weren't expecting ... that level of insult"
Late last month, as you may recall, Trent Reznor blasted the producers of The Grammy Awards for the way they treated his Nine Inch Nails performance at the close of the Grammy Awards this year. During NIN‘s finale performance (which also featured Lindsey Buckingham, Dave Grohl and Queens of the Stone Age), producers cut off the end of the supergroup’s performance so that they could air commercial ads. Reznor‘s response was, F***k you. In a new interview that Trent gave to promote NIN‘s upcoming tour of New Zealand, he talks at some length about the Grammy Awards debacle and he makes very clear that he will never perform on the Grammys ever again. The rest of the interview is really a great read … Reznor also talks about Beats Music, 40 unreleased demo songs that may one day see the light of day and he talks a bit about the musical score he is working on for the new David Fincher film Gone Girl. Click below to read a lot of great new information from the one and only Trent Reznor. More »
Altho actress Lupita Nyong’o didn’t win a BAFTA award, it looks like she had an amazing time at the awards show in London last night nonetheless. Lupita shared a few fun photos on her official Instagram profile from the BAFTAs last night, including a “losers selfie” that she snapped with her co-star and fellow BAFTA loser Michael Fassbender. BUT, because Lupita‘s film 12 Years A Slave was honored with the award for Best Film, she really can’t call herself a loser at all … she is a flawless queen, plain and simple. Don’t believe me? Have a look below. More »
