"Sending my love ..."
Taylor Swift posted a brilliant tweet on her official Twitter profile on Valentine’s Day that she devoted to all the “lonely Starbucks lovers” in the world who mistakenly think that she is singing about them in her new song Blank Space. In the song, Taylor sings “Got a long list of ex-lovers / They’ll tell you I’m insane” but the way she sings it, it sounds like she is singing “Got a long list of Starbucks lovers …” (I mean, that is what I hear and what I sing when I listen to the song). On VDay night, Taylor tweeted about the misheard lyric … and then the official Twitter profile for Starbucks tweeted back. Hahaha. See their exchange below. More »
Charlie <3's Britney
Our dear Britney Spears and her loverman Charlie Ebersol appear to have enjoyed themselves a pretty great Valentine’s Day together yesterday. Their festivities got started with a VDay surprise for Britney from Charlie in the form of a massive Valentine’s Day cake. Apparently, Britney and Charlie are embroiled in a pretty serious cake war where they keep trying to outdo one another by giving each other really elaborate cakes. It’s really cute and totally weird … but I can dig it. Then, the pair went on a movie date to see Fifty Shades of Grey because, apparently, it’s what pretty much everyone is doing this weekend.

For Valentine’s Day yesterday I decided to distract myself by running a fun underwear race called Cupid’s Undie Run here in LA to raise money for the Children’s Tumor Foundation which ended up raising over $3 million dollars nationally for the charity (my dear friends helped me raise $255 in just a few hours). The gimmick is meant to be fun for people in the rest of the country to run a short race in their underwear in the bitter, freezing cold. Here in LA, it was 82 degrees and hot so it was actually a relief to run in my underwear :) After I rested a bit and got cleaned up, I met up with Tamar for a fun little dinner date and that was my day.

Starring Scott Eastwood
Author Nicholas Sparks strikes again this year with a new movie based on one of his countless books. This time, the movie is titled The Longest Ride and it stars Scott Eastwood as a former bull rider, attempting to make a comeback, who falls in love with a professional woman trying to find success in the art world (played by Britt Robertson) who is much too good for him — but loves him anyway. There’s a B story about another couple from the past who faced their own struggles being in an interracial relationship and, well, you have all the makings of a Nicholas Sparks story. I don’t think this is something that I need to see but I have to admit, the shirtless scenes of Eastwood might change my mind. Click the embed above to watch this VDay trailer for The Longest Ride and see if this is a movie that you’d like to see when it opens in theaters on April 10.

"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.
