"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.

The TV Guide
Yesterday I shared a super trailer promo video for the new reality TV series Chrisley Knows Best and I mentioned that I would be meeting the family at a press event here in LA last night. I gathered up Emma and Darion and we made our way to the Sunset Tower Hotel to meet the Crisleys and had only THE time of our lives. The event started with a little Q&A with patriarch Todd Chrisley, which members of the family chiming in here and there, and then the event was opened up so that anyone who wanted to meet the family could do so. Emma, who is a HUGE fan of the show already (having only watched the trailer I showed you yesterday), wasted no time and made a beeline for Todd, Julie and Savannah … and we all basically became BFF instantaneously.

Earlier this week we learned that actor Shia LaBeouf caused a scene at the Berlin premiere of his new film Nymphomaniac when he walked the red carpet with a paper bag over his head that read I Am No Longer Famous. Today we learn that Shia is “sorry” for, well, everything and he wants the world to know that he is sorry. Shia has set up an performance art installation here in LA titled #IAMSORRY where he is making himself available to the public until February 16 from the hours of 11AM – 6PM. Individual people are allowed entry into the Cohen Gallery, one at a time, and are met with Shia sitting behind a desk. Sound familiar? It should because this kind of performance art has been done before and by better artists. But, I digress. Click below to see the press release announcement that was sent out at the launch of this project yesterday and see a couple photos that were snapped inside of Shia‘s #IAMSORRY project. More »

In the crowd, folks like Kelis and Taylor Swift took it all in and became the A-List audience for an A-List group of performers. Click thru the gallery to see some of the photos that were snapped last night at Clive‘s big shindig and see just how amazing this year’s line-up of performers and attendees was.

As many of you know Trent is partnering with Gain for the launch of their new product Gain Flings, and it’s kind of a huge deal. Why is it a huge deal? Ummmm because my epic night with FRIGGEN Toni Braxton, FRIGGEN Tamar Braxton, FRIGGEN Traci Braxton, FRIGGEN Towanda Braxton, and FRIGGEN Tina Braxton was brought to me (and now you) by Gain Flings! They had a really sweet party in the city last night for their pre-Grammy launch, and I got to meet/party with/interview all of the fabulous Braxton sisters. And Tamar‘s hubby Vince, who I think is just… awesome. Click inside for more!

"This sweater is dope as fuck. That's like some shit I would wear to the airport."
Last July, Kanye West released a capsule collection for French design house A.P.C. to some success (I think) and this weekend, he showed a new collection of A.P.C. clothes at Paris Fashion Week. At the A.P.C. show, Kanye treated guests to a 15 minute presentation wherein he talked about his design work on the collection and, to be honest, actually sounded like he knew what he was talking about.

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
I don’t know what it is about stories like this but they just get me! Y’all. Pamela Anderson just got hitched to her ex-husband Rick Salomon and I just can’t get over it. I am obsessed with people who marry the same person twice… Don’t ask me why. I know it sounds crazy, but I honestly think it’s, like, the most romantic thing ever, LMAO! And in the midst of all this DUNZO news (i.e. Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie, friggen Tori & Dean, and Miranda and Orlando… because yeah, I’m still not over them), I just like hearing that some couples are re-igniting the old flame. Click inside to learn more! And sidenote– that’s a pic from their first wedding back in 2007.
"No it's not a hologram, motherf*ckers"
Last Friday night, Justin Bieber decided to pay a visit to the Laugh Factory here in LA and was cajoled into jumping up on stage to be made fun of during comedian Chris D’Elia‘s stand up comedy routine. Honestly, D’Elia isn’t really that funny but I guess his jokes make make a few people laugh considering they are meant to make fun of The Biebs. For his part, JB was a pretty good sport thruout the routine … but, eventually, he did feel he had to speak up and defend himself by resorting to misogyny. Naturally, TMZ has video of the whole event … which you can watch in full below. More »
