And the winner is, Lucky!
Our dear Britney Spears was not in attendance at the Academy Awards last night but she and her boyfriend David Lucado did make an appearance at Elton John‘s annual AIDS Foundation Oscar Party. As you can see in the gallery presented here, red-headed Britney brought the GLAM as only she can to Elton‘s soirée. Truth be told, I’m not really crazy about the neckline cut of Britney‘s dress but I think she did look fabulous last night. Check out the photos and let me know what you think of Britney‘s Oscar night look. Are you a fan?

It was a total Freakshow
Britney Spears hosted a very special guest on stage last night during her Britney: Piece of Me performance in Las Vegas … the one and only Nicole Richie.

During Britney‘s performance of Freakshow, Nicole was brought on stage, harnessed and led around on a leash while Britney whipped her with a riding crop. Sounds like fun, right?

"I'm tired of lying by omission"
Actress Ellen Page publicly came out as gay last night in a speech she delivered at the Time to THRIVE conference meant to promote the welfare of LGBT youth which was held at Bally’s Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. After years of what she called “lying by omission”, Ellen decided that it was time for her reveal her sexuality in an attempt to “make a difference” and “to help others have an easier and more hopeful time”. Even more than that, tho, Page expressed that she felt “a personal obligation and a social responsibility” to share with the world a very personal part of her life that she has kept hidden publicly, until now.
