"Real beauty is quiet."

Worst. News. Ever./Congrats to the Happy Couple!
Have any of you ever wondered about your celebrity crush, and whether or not he/she is single? But instead of just giving it a quick Google, you decide that you physically and emotionally cannot handle the truth—you’d rather live in darkness and ignorance, and just idly hope that they are single, rather than get confirmation that they’re in some sort of amazing relationship with a lovely person they’ve known and loved since they were a teen? So yeah, I’ve been doing that since Kendrick Lamar first came on the scene, and I’ve been dreading the day this news came out. Not only does he (SOB) have a girlfriend, but they’ve also (SOB) been together since the beginning of time, and (SOOOOOOOOoooooobbbbb) they are now engaged and very happy. Click inside for more. Or whatever.
Her first public post-surgery appearance
Last week, Angelina Jolie bravely shared with the world her decision to have preemptive surgery to have her ovaries removed in order to reduce her cancer risk. Last night, she made her way to The Forum here in the Los Angeles area to attend the 2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards with her daughters Zahara Marley and Shiloh Nouvel as her dates. I guess the “story” is that yesterday’s event was Angelina‘s first public event since she underwent her surgery but for me, the real story is that she enjoyed a really fun outing with her children. Look at the ecstatic joy on her daughters’ faces when Angelina won her Kids’ Choice Award for Favorite Villain for her starring role in Maleficent. It’s insane how big her daughters have gotten but it’s really, really amazing to see them looking so well … and so happy and proud of their mom. Check out the photos in this gallery, I promise that they will brighten up your day.
"If we let the gov't start to legislate love in our lifetime, who do you think is next?"
Scandal star Kerry Washington was awarded the Vanguard Award at the GLAAD Media Awards here in Los Angeles, CA last night and she delivered a stirring and very powerful acceptance speech on the support of same-sex marriage in this country. At one point, in particular, she spoke directly to “Black people today [that tell her] that they don’t ‘believe’ in gay marriage” to make a poignant point about “legislating love” … she said:
So when black people today tell me that they don’t ‘believe’ in gay marriage (pause), the first thing that I say is please don’t let anybody try to get you to vote against your own best interests by feeding you messages of hate. And then I say, you know people used to say stuff like that about you and your love. And if we let the government start to legislate love in our lifetime, who do you think is next? We can’t say that we believe in each others’ fundamental humanity and then turn a blind eye to the reality of each others existence and the truth of each others hearts. We must be allies. And we must be allies in this business because to be represented is to be humanized. And as long as anyone, anywhere is being made to feel less human, our very definition of humanity is at stake and we are all vulnerable.
Thank you, Kerry. Very well said. After you click through the gallery presented here to see photos from last night’s GLAAD event, click below to watch Kerry Washington deliver her Vanguard Award acceptance speech in full and be inspired. More »
Madonna is #2
Billboard magazine has released the Top 200 Album Chart for the week and has revealed that the Original Soundtrack from Season 1 of Empire has outsold all other albums this week and has landed in the top spot. Coming in with a debut at #2 is Madonna with her new album Rebel Heart (this is the first time since 1998 that a new Madonna album has not debuted in the #1 spot on the Billboard album chart). I think it was pretty much expected that Madonna would land in the top position because tickets for her upcoming tour are bundled with an album sale for each ticket sold … but not even that gimmick could sell enough albums to give Madonna the #1 spot on the Billboard Top 200. Empire wins the day … and the week as the #1 album in the country. More »
