"The greatest demonstration for freedom ..."
Today, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, I feel it is only fitting that we spend part of our day remembering the selfless work for racial equality that Dr. King devoted his entire life to by watching his historic I Have A Dream speech. Each year, on MLK Jr. Day, I like to post video of his I Have A Dream Speech so that we all have access to his powerful and inspiring words. Of course, this speech is readily available and easily accessible any day of the year but it seem right to pay tribute to the memory of Dr. King by watching video of his speech today. If you cannot watch the video above, maybe you can spend some time reading the words of the I Have A Dream speech below. More »

Altho I just spent a really fun day with friends at Disneyland on Sunday, I had to return to the theme park yesterday to partake in the annual Dia de Reyes celebration that they do for guests because I’ve never experienced the celebration before in my life. Growing up in the Midwest, I missed out on a lot of culturally Mexican celebrations that I am now exposed to living here in Southern California. For some time now, I’ve heard about Dia de Reyes but I’ve never partaken in any of the celebrations before. I figure if Disneyland throws a party for the holiday, it might be worth checking out. I met up with my friend Elena at the park last night so that we could attend the parade/party together and we ended up having a blast together. More »
For those of you living on the West Coast, this post is not for you. This one goes out to my East Coast/Midwest peoples, still trying to figure out why they live on the East Coast or in the Midwest, which is where I am in life right now. It’s friggen freezing outside, and my only reprieve yesterday was Rihanna. Now Jessica Alba‘s Instagram comes to the rescue, as she appears to be having the best winter vacation ever, as well.

It pays to be a loyal Taylor Swift fan
After the extremely successful year that Taylor Swift enjoyed thanks to the loyal support of her legion of fans, she decided to give back to some of her fans by surprising them with Swiftmas gifts. As the video embedded above explains, Taylor stalked some of her fans online to determine which ones she would surprise with gifts she personally selected for them … she even delivered in person gifts to one lucky fan in Connecticut. Taylor has a long history of engaging in very significant personal interactions with her fans and this video is further proof of how much she loves and cares for the people who love and support her and her career. This is a really great video, I have to admit. It really looks like some of Taylor‘s fans truly enjoyed the best Swiftmas ever.

Altho Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello have yet to officially confirm their engagement, they sure are acting like a happily enfiancéd couple. Jofia made their way to Las Vegas, NV to ring in the new year — randomly — with Arnold Schwarzenegger and friends. The group made their way to the Axis Theater inside the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino to take in Britney Spears‘s New Year’s Eve performance of Britney: Piece Of Me. I don’t know about you but their night sounds like a GREAT way to celebrate New Year’s Eve (erm, minus the Arnold Schwarzenegger bit). Click below to see fun photos from their NYE celebrations last night. More »

Welp, another year has come and gone. Last night I met up with Tamar at her place for a sweet hang before we met up with her friends Danielle and Andrea and then we all made our way to their friend Dane’s place for one last hurrah before the new year. While we had a lot of fun, I have to tell you … we were also kind of miserable all night long. The temps have been really cold all week long and last night was downright freezing. Try as we may to have fun at the party, we were all so cold that it really wasn’t the best time ever. To keep warm, I practically stood in the fire pit and drank as much whisky as possible to warm up my insides. Which means, obvs, that I’m not feeling so great today either. OY! More »
"May your year be blessed with joy!"
While revelers were out and about all across the country ringing in the new year with bitter cold, cheap champagne and hordes of drunk and obnoxious people, our dear Britney Spears and her man Charlie Ebersol spent a quiet New Year’s Eve in together. To ring in 2015, Britney and Charlie shared a cute little video on her official Facebook profile in which they deliver a Happy New Year toast … with hot chocolate. Adorable, duh. Click below to see this Happy New Year video toast from our dear Spebersol. More »

Earlier today we saw photos of Marky Mark Whalberg sunning his buns (literally) on a beach in Barbados and, not to be outdone, now we get to see a batch of photos of actor Orlando Bloom soaking up some rays on a beach in Cancun. Unfortunately, Orlando didn’t suffer any wardrobe malfunctions on his beach outing (damn properly fastened swim trunks) but his hot bod is enough to provide interesting viewing for you, I think. Have a looksee … and I gotta know, who’s photos are hotter — Marky‘s or Orlando‘s?
