Following in the footsteps of Michael Jackson, Madonna, Britney Spears & Beyoncé
MTV will air their annual Video Music Awards LIVE from the Microsoft Theater in downtown LA on Sunday August 30 and, as we learned last month, Miley Cyrus will be hosting this year’s affair. Today we learn that rapper Kanye West has been selected as the recipient of the 2015 Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award which celebrates excellence in music, art, fashion and culture. Previous Video Vanguard winners include Michael Jackson (for which the award was renamed after his death), Madonna, Beastie Boys, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and last year’s recipient Beyoncé … so Kanye is now in very good company. MTV has produced a promo video announcing Kanye‘s Video Vanguard award, which you can watch in full below along with more information about the MTV VMAs in a newly issued press release. More »
They had joint bachelor/bachelorette partied because they're adorable
It’s easy to get cynical about celebrity weddings, but not this time around. Back in June, Tracy Morgan suffered a horrible highway accident that left many wondering if he’d be here today. He lost one of his close friends, comedian James McNair and he’s been slowly but surely recovering ever since. For this reason, and because I’m a huge fan of his work, I was truly excited to hear that he got hitched to long-time fiancée and mother of his two year-old daughter, Megan Wollover.

"I was not planning on announcing this, but ..."
Last night my friend Austin and I went to the Staples Center to see Kelly Clarkson live in concert as her Piece By Piece Tour rolled into town. We were present when Kelly announced, mid-song, that she is pregnant with her second child! Kelly began her performance of her new album title track Piece By Piece and she started crying and had to stop the song … she started laughing and apologized to the audience, telling them that she was OK … and then she blurted out the news that she is pregnant for the second time. The audience erupted in cheers, Kelly laughed and cried some more … then she apologized to her husband Brandon Blackstock from the stage because she told us she wasn’t supposed to announce her pregnancy in this way. Everyone was so happy at hearing the news that I don’t think anyone blamed her one bit for the happy slip up.

It's a boy!
Remember back in January when we learned that actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt got secretly married in December of last year? Well, today we learn that JGL and his wife Tasha McCauley are now the proud parents of a baby that was born last weekend. Us Weekly magazine is reporting that JGL and Tasha birthed a baby boy … and that’s really all we know.

Click below to learn “more” about JGL‘s new status as a dad and let’s send our love and congrats to the newly expanded family today! More »
The US territory of Puerto Rico celebrated the legalization of marriage equality on Sunday with a mass same-sex wedding ceremony that took place on the island. Now that the US Supreme Court has legalized same-sex marriage in the United States of America, the governor of Puerto Rico signed an executive order legalizing same-sex marriage in the US territory which allows the citizens of PR to enjoy marriage equality as well. A mass wedding was held on Sunday where over 60 couples were wed, including people from the nearby nations of Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Cuba and Venezuela. The official Instagram profile for LGBT Puerto Rico shared a host of beautiful photos of many of the happy newlyweds, some of which you can see in the gallery presented here. It’s really wonderful to see the happiness exhibited in these photos. Love wins, every single time. Please enjoy these amazing photos.

Behold, your Candie's Choice Style Icon
Our dear Britney Spears graced the 2015 Teen Choice Awards last night to collect an award for being a Style Icon and, in the process, she managed to shut the whole production down and leave every other person in attendance in her wake as she slayed the whole entire planet with her hawt fabulousness.

WAY back in August of 2012, Justin Theroux surprised his longtime girlfriend Jennifer Aniston with a wedding proposal … which she happily accepted. But, in spite of promises back in early 2013 that the couple would be getting married “soon”, Justifer remained happily unmarried … until now … maybe. Jennifer and Justin hosted a massive party at their home in Bel Air that was supposed to be a surprise birthday party and was attended by the couple’s closest friends (including Jennifer‘s Friends friends) but it now looks like the party was actually a secret wedding. Sneaky photos that were snapped of the event show that the party was massive and included a guest that was a reverend/pastor soooooooooooooooo, altho no one is talking officially, it would appear that the Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux‘s party last night was actually a wedding ceremony.
