"Inspired by the Magic of Mariah Carey"
Mariah Carey made an in-person appearance at the St. Regis Hotel in NYC, NY yesterday to formally announce the release of a new beverage. That’s right, Mimi is getting into the beverage game. Described as a “melodic beverage inspired by the magic of Mariah Carey”, Butterfly appears to be a carbonated soda pop-like drink. This new beverage, I assume, can be mixed with alcohol to give it that extra kick that I’m sure you’re going to need when drinking a “melodic beverage inspired by Mariah Carey” so there’s that. Butterfly will be available for sale at Walgreens and Duane Rede stores, if you’re interested. Click thru the gallery here to see Mimi at yesterday’s product launch event and get your first look at this new drink. Wanna sip?

Woot! and Yummo!
It’s been FAR TOO LONG since we’ve checked in on Ryan Phillippe and his hotness here on the blog but today we get a nice update as to now the guy is looking … er, doing these days. Ryan and new girlfriend Paulina Slagter were spotted on a beach in Miami, FL yesterday and as you can see in the photos presented in this gallery, Phillippe is lookin’ better than ever these days. Like a fine wine, or a George Clooney, Ryan Phillippe just keeps getting better with age. I must admit that I’m not really sure what Ryan has got going on in his life professionally these days but … does it really matter if we get to check out photos like this? Nope, didn’t think so. Please enjoy.

Jonah Hill is offering an apology today in the wake of the release of paparazzi video that shows him uttering a disgusting homophobic slur toward a photographer over the weekend. Claiming that he had been harassed to the point where he “lost his cool”, Jonah admits that he called the photographer a “faggot” and went on The Howard Stern Show to apologize for doing so. Click below to watch the original paparazzi video to hear what Jonah said and then listen to a portion of his interview with Howard Stern where he apologizes for what he said. More »
Pop star Rihanna caused a bit of a sensation on the red carpet of the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards in NYC, NY last night when she showed up to collect this year’s Fashion Icon Award wearing a dress that was so completely see-thru that it left nothing to the imagination. #FreeTheNipple made its way to the red carpet last night, y’all. To her credit, Ri Ri brilliantly paid homage to the CFDA Fashion Awards sponsor Swarovski Crystals by wearing a dress that was covered in Swarovski Crystals — on completely sheer fabric. To be honest, I am neither surprised nor wowed by Rihanna‘s outfit because, really, when doesn’t she go nekkid for the cameras. But, since toplessness and the #FreeTheNipple campaign is in the public consciousness these days, it’s easy to see that Rihanna is the reigning champion of celebrity nekkidness. Click thru the gallery to see Rihanna‘s NSFW outfit and see what you think? Are you impressed by Rihanna‘s fearlessness or do you find her outfit much ado about wearing nothing?
Earlier today we heard about how Brad Pitt got physically assaulted on the red carpet of the Hollywood premiere of Maleficent at the El Capitan Theater last night but right now we get to see other, non assault-related photos from the premiere fete. Angelina Jolie reigned supreme as the Queen of the night at the Maleficent premiere with her co-stars Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Sam Riley and others just basking in her magnificent glow. Angelina spent some time hob-nobbing with fans at the event last night, which made the whole thing look like a lot of fun. Click thru the gallery to see who wore what and get excited, y’all. Maleficent opens in theaters officially at midnight tonight! I loved it! I think you will, too.
Come Together Now
Back in April of 2012 Heidi Klum filed for divorce from her then-husband Seal after the couple decided to split up in January of that year. Since that time, Heidi enjoyed a fairly significant romantic relationship with her then-bodyguard before they decided to break up. Yesterday, Heidi and Seal reunited for a fun family outing at the Disneyland and Disney California Adventure theme parks here in SoCal, sparking talk that the couple may be lookin’ to reconcile. At this point, it’s probably far too early to think about these two getting back together … but it is very nice to see that they are still friendly enough to come together for their children. The photos of Heidi, Seal and their kids at Disneyland are just too cute not to share. Whatever comes of Heidi and Seal‘s relationship, I hope they can remain this friendly and close from here on out.
How does this keep happening?
Two weeks ago a man named Vitalii Sediuk breached the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival so that he could crawl underneath America Ferrera‘s dress in a “prank” attempt. Last night, Sediuk managed to breach the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of Maleficent at the El Capitan Theater on Hollywood Blvd. so that he could hit Brad Pitt in the face. The so-called “serial troublemaker” was apprehended by security and then taken into custody by police and, as I understand it, was only punished with one night in jail in lieu of paying a $20,000 fine for misdemeanor assault. This is the same man that in recent years has managed to breach security at award shows and at red carpet events all over the world. In 2012, he famously kissed Will Smith on the face, for which he was slapped, and in 2013, he successfully managed to get on stage during the Grammy Awards to interrupt Adele‘s trophy presentation by snatching the microphone from Jennifer Lopez‘s hands — on live TV. I guess I don’t understand how this man continues to be able to get so dangerously close to celebrities. His actions have been described as “pranks” but they seem like assaults to me, especially last night’s attack on Brad Pitt. I wonder how long this man will be allowed to “prank” people before he is able to seriously injure someone?
3rd Wedding, White Dress, Don't Curr
In an effort to move past the crush of media reports about Kanye West‘s wedding today to his babymama, I think it’s best to just pass along the most pertinent information about the event so that we can move on as quickly as possible. We already learned HERE how Lana Del Rey helped Kanye & co. celebrate the pre-wedding festivities in France last night, we learned HERE a few deets about the Italian wedding ceremony that took place today in Florence and right now we get our first look at the new Mrs. Kanye West‘s wedding dress. E! News is reporting that the bride wore Givenchy Haute Couture as she walked down the aisle. For those interested, you can get your first look at THE DRESS below. More »
OH LORDE, brace yourselves … the wedding of Kanye West and his babymama is nearly upon us and I don’t know that we’re ready for it all but … it’s coming nonetheless. There has been confusion over whether or not KimYe would be getting married at the Palace of Versailles in France or at the Forte di Belvedere in Italy. Wedding decorations and set up is taking place right now in both locations … which means they are either getting married at both locations or they are splitting up the ceremony and the reception between both places or they are trying to fake everyone out by decorating both locations. Based on all the rumor that’s been going on this week, I’m guessing the ceremony and the reception will be split between the two locales. BUT we just don’t know what will take place where. Lana Del Rey has been hired to perform at the wedding and she was photographed rehearsing at Versailles so … YOUR GUESS IS AS GOOD AS MINE. More »
Lindsay Lohan had made her way to Cannes, France to partake of the festivities going on there this week as part of the Cannes International Film Festival … particularly the festivities that take place after dark and into the wee hours of the morning. No, Lindsay doesn’t have a film project that she is promoting in Cannes … it appears that she’s just there to party. As you may know, Lindsay is in recovery from her recent stint in rehab where she sought help to deal with her substance abuse problems … so OF COURSE she thought it would be a great idea to fly to the party capital of the world right now and party hearty. As you can see in the photos presented in this gallery, Lindsay was in the company of her younger brother Michael Lohan, Jr. It would be nice to believe that Lindsay was able to party in Cannes while completely sober but … well, do you really think that she managed to refrain from drinking or taking drugs?
