What am I looking at?
Badgalriri strikes again, with yet another Instagram photo that has me tilting my head to the side, and going, “Hmmmmkay” (that’s “Hmmm” + “Mkay“). We know that when Rihanna‘s not making new music, or pranking the bejeezus out of Jimmy Kimmel, she’s doing wild and crazy things to her body. This time it’s a lip piercing. Or a tooth piercing. Or… both? Click inside and help me figure this out.

"This is something my family and I thought you should know about"
Very sad news to pass along today … Taylor Swift has updated her official Tumblr with the sad news that her mother, Andrea, has been diagnosed with cancer. Taylor shares that, for Xmas, she asked that her mother get a medical check-up so that she and her brother Austin would have the peace of mind that their mom was OK. Very sadly, Taylor reveals today that the results came back showing that her mother has cancer. Wow. Because Taylor is so open with her fans about pretty much all things, she felt compelled to share her personal story with the world, I think, in the hopes that her mother’s diagnosis may be of help to other people.

"I thought I was dying."
Last year, pop star Avril Lavigne made curious mention about her health that clued folks in to the fact that she wasn’t doing very well but at the time, I don’t think even she know exactly what was going on. Today we learn from Avril herself that she contracted lyme disease sometime last year and began to suffer painfully from its effects … to the point where she was bedridden for 5 months and she thought she was dying. Horrible. Avril is featured on the cover of this week’s issue of People magazine and in her cover story interview, she opens up about her ordeal. She says she’s feeling better these days (back to about “80%” she says) but you have to read her story to hear how bad it’s been for her :( More »

Yesterday morning, the New York Times published an op-ed written by actress Angelina Jolie wherein she revealed her decision to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in order to reduce her risk of developing ovarian cancer after she tested positive for the BRCA1 “cancer gene” (you may recall that Jolie also had her breasts removed to reduce her risk of developing breast cancer back in 2013). Not only after Angelina‘s piece in the NYT was published, Kelly Osbourne made an appearance on The Talk yesterday to reveal her personal decision to have her ovaries removed as well. Kelly‘s mother Sharon Osbourne underwent a preemptive double mastectomy back in 2012 and at her mother’s suggestion, she was tested for the BRCA1 gene. Watch the video above to hear Kelly explain how testing positive for the cancer gene prompted her to decide to have her ovaries removed.
"It is a less complex surgery than the mastectomy, but its effects are more severe."
Two years ago, back in May 2013, Angelina Jolie revealed to the world that she underwent a preemptive double mastectomy in order to reduce her risk of developing breast cancer after she tested positive for the BRCA1 gene (which revealed a 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer). Today, Angelina reveals in an op-ed written for the New York Times that she underwent surgery last week to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in order to reduce her risk of developing ovarian cancer. Angelina details her decision to have the surgery and its results very plainly, very honestly, very bravely. Click below to read excerpts from her piece today in the NYT and learn more about her brave decision to have this surgery and share the experience with the world. More »
Zayn Malik‘s publicist announced today that he will be quitting the One Direction tour immediately so that he can fly back home to the UK and deal with “stress”. This announcement comes shortly after photos surfaced of Zayn looking awfully close to a young woman that is NOT his fiancée Perrie Edwards. Putting 2 + 2 together, it would appear that the stress that Zayn is suffering might be stemming from the grief those photos are causing him … and his fiancée. Yikes! Click below to learn more about Zayn‘s departure from the 1D tour and possible dissolution of his marriage engagement. More »
The video graphically shows the point of impact and reimpact
Back in January we learned that rap mogul Marion Suge Knight was arrested on charges resulting from a fatal hit and run on the set of the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton that was still in filming production here in Los Angeles. Knight claims that that the hit and run was the result of self defense. Today, graphic video of the full hit and run incident has been released and … yeah … it’s pretty insane to watch. The incident was recorded on surveillance video and altho a bit censored, the video does show the points of impact when the truck Suge Knight was driving struck Cle Bone Sloan and Terry Carter — who ended up dying from his injuries. For the record, Carter‘s family asked that this video be released publicly in order to bolster the case against Suge Knight. You can watch the video in full above and then read a description of what this video shows in more detail. More »
