Congratulations are in order for actor Paul Rudd because yesterday he was honored with his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Timed to coincide with the release of his new superhero movie Ant-Man, in theaters on July 17, Rudd was celebrated with a ceremony attended by his family and friends — including actors Michael Douglas and Adam Scott — as well as a horde of fans. Paul‘s star has been placed very near the El Capitan Theater on Hollywood Blvd. so folks who head there to see Ant-Man when it opens will be able to check out his shiny new star on the Walk of Fame. In his speech at the ceremony, Paul quipped: “I remember being a kid and walking this boulevard and reading the names and thinking about what so many other millions of people thought about, which is, ‘Who’s that? The fact that millions of people are going to be able to now see me and ask that same question … is humbling beyond belief.” Haha. I just love him. Altho he has starred in many great films, I will always love him as Josh in Clueless — forever and always. I am so happy to see his success grow with each passing year. Much love and many congrats to Paul on his new star. AND GO SEE ANT-MAN WHEN IT OPENS ON JULY 17 :D

A new box office KING is crowned
In the wake of the news that Jurassic World set a new opening weekend box office record, besting the old record held by 2013′s The Avengers, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has offered his public congratulations to Universal Pictures (and the producers and actors) on their box office accomplishment. Feige shared a fun photo below that shows KING Chris Pratt riding atop a Tyrannosaurs Rex (who wields Thor‘s hammer Mjolnir in one of his tiny hands) as the assembled Avengers look up in questioning awe of his theatrical might. It’s not often that this kind of sportsmanship is made public in Hollywood so I think it’s something that is worth sharing far and wide. Have a look below. More »
LOVE this baby name!
And she’s here! A little while back we learned that, after a pretty insane marriage proposal, Ludacris and Eudoxie (Eh-dox-ee) Agnan quickly and quietly got hitched.

Coming July 15
It’s been a big day for Caitlyn Jenner, what with the release of her Vanity Fair magazine cover photo and her debut on Twitter … and her day has gotten even better. ESPN has announced that Caitlyn will be this year’s recipient of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award when The ESPY Awards are handed out on July 15. As you may recall, Michael Sam received the award last year and in previous years, the Arthur Ashe Courage Award have included Robin Roberts, Billie Jean King, Muhammad Ali and Nelson Mandela to name but a few. This year, because of her courage and willingness to share her very personal story with the world, the Courage Award will be given to Caitlyn Jenner. More »
Snapchats from the party, actually
Yesterday, thanks to aunt La Toya Jackson, we learned that Michael Jackson‘s eldest child Prince Michael Joseph graduated from high school with honors over the weekend. Today we get to see a collection of photos that have made their way out of the Jackson family’s graduation party for Prince. TMZ managed to get their hands on a bunch of Snapchat photos that were taken during Prince‘s graduation party … but it’s unclear who was taking the photos. One photo, of grandma Katherine Jackson, is captioned “Jackie Jackson” so it’s possible that the snaps were taken by someone who isn’t really familiar with the family. In any event, it’s nice to see that the Jacksons came together for a nice and very normal-looking graduation party for Prince. He’s off to college in the fall, I can’t wait to find out which SoCal university he will attend.
Yes, this is happening [again] folks!
It seems like only yesterday, our collective minds were being blown away by the announcement that Kanye West had crowned Kim Kardashian his babymama, and soon-to-be-wife. There was this general feeling of utter bewilderment and shock as we entered into 2013, and sometimes it’s still hard to believe that Kimye is a real, living, breathing, baby-making thing. Well gear yourselves up for another massive media bump watch, because Kanye‘s wife is pregnant again! Click inside for more!
Earlier today we saw a photo of Michael Jackson‘s only daughter, Paris, hitting up the red carpet last night with her boyfriend Chester Castellaw.

Aunt La Toya Jackson posted a photo with Prince at his graduation ceremony at The Buckley School in Sherman Oaks, CA with him proudly showing off his diploma while wearing his school colors cap and gown. According to the caption on the photo, Prince graduated with honors. Congrats!! More »
