Spider-Man <3 Batkid
Earlier today the New York Post published a story claiming that Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield bailed on appearing during the Academy Awards telecast with Miles Scott (aka that adorable Batkid who enjoyed an epic Make-A-Wish dream come true in San Francisco last year) due to his alleged diva behavior. Honestly, I had a hard time believing the story but these days, it’s not always easy to know what to believe. In response to the NYPost story, Andrew Garfield is denying that he bailed on Batkid and, instead, places the blame on the Oscar producers. According to Garfield, he and Batkid are BFFs … which is a story that I would much rather believe. More »
Now that Academy Award-winner Lupita Nyong’o can relax a bit from the awards season stress with that golden Oscar statue safely in her possession, she can turn her attention elsewhere … like to Paris Fashion Week. Lupita has made her way to Paris, France to attend a few fashion shows this week and bumped into her new BFF Rihanna. As you can see below, the ladies couldn’t resist posing for a selfie photo together (because, as you may know, selfies are all the rage these days). Don’t they make a cute couple? More »

The Party Don't Stop
Justin Bieber‘s 20th birthday celebration continues to unfold but we learn today that the festivities have made their way down to the Bahamas, where JB has gathered together his closest family and friends for the continued celebration. Amongst Bieber‘s friends in the Bahamas with him are Lil Za and Khalil Sharieff, who both have been recently arrested alongside The Biebs. Thick as thieves, these 3 are. Justin‘s bro dad Jeremy Bieber is also partying with him in the Bahamas because, duh, if there’s a party then Daddy Bieber is going to be there.

Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres, in an attempt at “keeping it real” during the Academy Awards, did a few comedy bits last night where she took selfie photos on her Samsung Galaxy smartphone that she immediately shared with her legion of followers on Twitter. Near the start of the show, Ellen took a selfie of herself looking out over the assembled Oscars audience. Then, in an attempt to set a world record for the most retweeted image ever, she gathered together a group of actors (and Luptia Nyong’o‘s non-actor brother Peter) for the greatest selfie of all time, and shared it with the world. Finally, she snapped a very unflattering selfie photo with Liza Minneli (who always looks drunk) lookin’ drunk. It was the Selfie Oscars, y’all! Click below to see the selfie photos that Ellen snapped last night. More »

I blame YOU, Jared Leto!
Academy Award-nominated actress Lupita Nyong’o has been on an amazing streak for the past few months, ever since the world got to see her stunning performance in the Academy Award-nominated film 12 Years a Slave last year. As you may recall, we celebrated her 31st birthday here on the blog yesterday. It turns out that Lupita did a lot of celebrating last night, celebrations that included friends old and new. Today we get to see a new photo of Lupita hanging out with infamous photographer Terry Richardson … which doesn’t really sit well with me very much, I gotta say. Lupita, as always, looks divine in this new photo … Terry, well, he looks like he can’t wait to get her in his studio … hmmm. More »
Buffy + Angel = 2gether 4ever
OMG OMG OMG! I’m not sure how I missed this THE EXACT SECOND IT OCCURRED but earlier this week Sarah Michelle Gellar shared a photo on her official Twitter profile that was snapped with her longtime co-star/Buffyverse soulmate David Boreanaz on the set of his TV series Bones. As you should be WELL AWARE, SMG played Buffy Summers and David played the vampire Angel on the series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off Angel for many years back in the late 90s/early 00s but haven’t really been photographed together since. In the past couple of weeks, we’ve seen photos of SMG with her Buffy BFF Tom Lenk and her close Buffy co-stars Michelle Trachtenberg and Seth Green but this photo with David Boreanaz is EVERY DAMN THING IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD! AHHHHHH! BtVS geeks, FREAK OUT WITH ME, PLEASE!!! More »
Rihanna, who we know has been spending time in Paris because she gave a surprise performance at Drake‘s recent concert there this week, made a fashion splash last night when she stepped out on the town with her breasts just … out. It wasn’t that Ri Ri was walking around topless … but she did step out while wearing only a totally see-thru fishnet top … breasts out and everything. Clearly, Rihanna was intent on making a fashion statement … and her statement was, IDGAF. More »

"This is the mentor, this is the God, this is the genius of all geniuses"
Earlier this week we learned that Drake brought out on stage his ladyfriend/possible love interest Rihanna for a duet performance of their song Take Care in Paris, France. Last night, Drake brought out another BFF for a special surprise performance during his Would You Like A Tour? Tour, this time in Berlin, Germany. None other than BFF Kanye West came out for a special performance of his song Black Skinhead, much to the audience’s ecstatic glee. As you can hear in the video embedded above, Drake had a lot of really great things to say about Kanye before Yeezy launched into his performance. Check out the performance and see what you think. It’s clear to me that these two guys have a pretty ride or die friendship … which is really nice to see among men, don’t you think?
"There is no shame in black beauty"
Lupita Nyong’o was on hand at the Essence magazine Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon here in LA yesterday to collect an award for her stunning performance in her Oscar-nominated film 12 Years a Slave. On her official Instagram profile, Lupita shared a couple of really great photos with her fans — including a group shot she took with Sleepy Hollow star Nicole Beharie and Orange is the New Black stars Danielle Brooks (Taystee!) and Samira Wiley (Poussay!!!) … which, to a TV geek like myself, sent me into ecstatic conniption fits. In person, Lupita delivered a powerfully emotional speech that spoke not only about her gratitude for winning an award but spoke to a larger theme about “black beauty”. Her speech is definitely worth your time, please read it in full below. More »
There hasn’t been a lot of Tom Daley news since he went public with his boyfriend Dustin Lance Black last month, just about a month after he publicly came out as gay. BUTT today, there’s news. Daley‘s BFF Sophie Lee loves to post photos of Tom on her Instagram profile and this week, she posted a photo of Tom taking a shower and wouldn’t you know it … the photo she shared gives full view of Daley‘s soapy bum.
