"I wasn't making things I was passionate about"
The other night I was watching the movie Water for Elephants, which I remembered really liking when it first came out. Maybe my critical eye has sharpened over the years or maybe I was looking for it—but I started to see what people had been saying about Reese Witherspoon‘s performance. There were some truly bland moments, and it did change my perception of the film. Now that Witherspoon is hitting new career heights with her lead role in Wild, and her production credits for Gone Girl (one of my personal faves), she’s opening up about the previous few years of her career and I think she’s incredibly brave to do so.

On her breakup, Beyoncé, and the baby she wants to have SOON
This was a pretty busy week for me, and I’m just now getting into some of the stories I’ve been hearing about. The two interviews that have been getting the most buzz are Nicki Minaj‘s Power 105.1 conversation with Angie Martinez, and Azealia Banks‘ — which I haven’t gotten to yet. I LOVED hearing Nicki open up, especially because she’s going through a [possible] breakup—all while she’s promoting The Pinkprint. Click inside for more!
I've decided that this means he'd be into me.
As you all know, my feelings for Eddie Redmayne have only grown over the years… which is why it’s a tragedy that I haven’t seen The Theory of Everything yet. Grrr. So many movies, so little time/too many babies. But my goal is to get see it before the end of the year. In the meantime, I’ll continue to stalk his life. Which is why I couldn’t wait to hear about his childhood celebrity crush… and the answer shocked me. Click inside for more!
"The Next Style Breakout Star"
Musician FKA twigs is featured in the new issue of Vogue magazine, on newsstands now, in a special feature where she models statement earrings. Now, I’m not a big reader of fashion magazines but my assumption is that each month, mags find a hot fashionista to model accessories or trends of the moment. FKA twigs is a total It girl right now so it makes sense that Vogue would want to feature her in the mag. Have a look below at one of her Vogue photos, beautifully shot by Patrick Demarcelier, and see how well FKA twigs does as a fashion model. More »

"I don't see going back to it."
After he reprised his role as Jack Bauer for a new season of 24 earlier in the year, Kiefer Sutherland gave an interview in August that seemed to suggest that he was very interested in coming back for another season of the show as early as next year. Today, tho, we are hearing from Kiefer again but this time, he is staying that he doesn’t see himself stepping into the role of Jack Bauer ever again. It’s unclear if this change in attitude is a result of disinterest in a new season of 24 from the network or if he’s just over playing the role but it sounds like the 24 saga has finally come to an end.

Nicki Minaj made an appearance on The Tonight Show last night to do a little promo work for her just-released new album The Pinkprint and somewhere along the way, she got roped into talking about the high school yearbook photo that she “really hates”.
