David Beckham Signs With Paris Saint-Germain Football Club

Done Deal

Earlier this week we saw photos of David Beckham doing a bit of training with the Arsenal FC in England but it turns out that that training session was just for fun … because today we learn that Becks has signed a contract to play with Paris Saint-Germain FC this season. After Becks ended his contract with the LA Galaxy last month, everyone started to wonder which, if any, team he’d play with next. Now we know … the lucky folks who root for PSG can now add David Beckham to their beloved team. More »

‘Sports Illustrated’ Magazine Publishes A Cute Gay Kiss Photo . . . Without Irony

Progress

Remember earlier this month when we learned that cable sports network ESPN aired a celebratory same-sex kiss between a champion professional bowler and his husband? Well, today we learn that Sports Illustrated, THE most popular sports magazine, has also ventured into the realm of the celebration of gay kissing. In the new issue of SI, a photo is featured that shows a group of San Francisco 49ers fans celebrating the teams NFC championship win … and in the photo, two gay fans are seen sharing a sweet kiss. While this may sound like no big deal to some, it should be noted that sports media has a history of mocking gay love … so this celebration is a huge step in the right direction :D Click below to see this really cute photo.

Watch: This Volkswagen Super Bowl Commercial Unites Your Favorite Viral Stars

And Promises To Make You Happy!
C'mon. Get Happy.

Super Bowl XLVII is upon us y’all. We’ve seen Beyoncé getting her rehearsal on, and now the first of many, epic Super Bowl commercials has been released. I, for one, definitely plan to watch the game this year 1.) to see if PITNBR nicole‘s wishes for an epic Destiny’s Child performance of Lose My Breath goes down, and 2.) to LMAO at all the ridiculous commercials (and also to drive the love of my life cray-cray by asking a million questions ’cause I still don’t “get” football, although I love watching ESPN… shouts-out to Skip and Stephen). Volkswagen has just released this pretty sweet commercial featuring some of your YouTube faves (like the eHarmony cat-lover). I love that some guy  singing a reggae song unites us all in the end, because I recently watched that amazing Bob Marley documentary and yeah. That’s pretty much how it works. Peep the video for more!

Beyoncé Shares Photos Of Rehearsals For Her Super Bowl Half-Time Performance

Plus-- Do We Have The Destiny's Child Set List As Well?

As we all know, Beyoncé is gearing up for her performance at Super Bowl XLVII… and so are we. As if Beyoncé‘s performance wasn’t reason enough to tune in, we also learned a little while back that Destiny’s Child will be reuniting on stage as well… which is insane, and we are not worthy! Recently, Bey took to Instagram to share some pictures of herself in rehearsal, and things are looking pretty hot. Also, Us Magazine claims to have the coveted set list for the Destiny’s Child performance. Click inside for more!

Will All The Lance Armstrong Books Be Moved To The Fiction Section Of This Australian Library?

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day

Okay; this is hilarious. We’ve seen the interview. We’ve seen the bullshizz tears. And now there’s a movie in the works. But I think the only thing “cool” to come out of the Lance Armstrong doping scandal  is this news about a library in Sydney, Australia. Apparently, someone posted a notice in the library informing everyone that all the Lance Armstrong books would henceforth and forever more be located in the Fiction section. LMAO. Now apparently, this was just a joke and the library is now looking into who put up the sign… but it’s still so funny! Click inside to check out the hilarious note.

Watch: ESPN Airs Celebratory Kiss Between Champion Bowler Scott Norton And His Husband Craig Woodward

Yay!

Back in November, champion bowler Scott Norton defeated Jason Belmonte in the 2012 PBA Chameleon Championship in Las Vegas, NV to become champion for the second time in his career. This news, quite honestly, isn’t at all of interest to me and, I suspect, to many of you. BUT, the championship match aired for the first time on ESPN this past Sunday and caught my eye (and the eye of many others) because at the conclusion, Scott shared a celebratory on-camera kiss with his husband Craig Woodward. I can’t be sure but I believe this is the first time the ESPN network has ever aired a pro athlete sharing a same-sex kiss. That, my friends, should be of considerable interest to each and every one of us. Click below to watch video of the happy and extremely loving moment as it aired on ESPN this weekend. More »

Justin Bieber Is Now A Baby Sitter

OK, this is really cute

So, I may like to give tween popstar Justin Bieber a lot of grief for being an 18 year old kid with access to MASSIVE amounts of money but sometimes, just sometimes, he manages to do something that’s so cute that it’s almost pretty cool. At the LA Clippers basketball game at the Staples Center last night, Bieber played babysitter to the 3 year old son of Clippers player Chris Paul. The Biebs and little Christopher Emmanuel were seated courtside during the game and JB was tasked with keeping an eye on the little dude. Yes, the scene was as cute as you might imagine. More »

David Beckham & The LA Galaxy Win The 2012 MLS Championship

Becks Goes Out Like a Champ

A couple of weeks ago we learned the bummer news that David Beckham is leaving the LA Galaxy soccer team. At the time, it was announced that the 2012 MLS Championship game — win or lose — would be his last game as a Galaxian. Over the weekend, the Galaxy took on the Houston Dynamo at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA and won by a score of 3-1. This year’s MLS Championship title is the second in a row for the Galaxy … and proved to be the perfect high note for Becks to end his time here in LA as a professional soccer player. Click below to learn more and see a bunch of really fun celebratory photos. More »

Marion Cotillard And Gorgeous Baby Marcel Are Back At The Gucci Paris Masters Horse Event

I Still... Cannot.

For those of you who joined me in my gush-fest over Marion Cotillard‘s one year-old baby boy the other day, we have an update. As unbelievably picture-perfect as little Marcel appeared to be, I think it’s safe to say that he’s absolutely real. Like, this is a real baby… with ginormous blonde curls and and a perfectly round face, and like, rays of sunshine bursting from his body. It’s madness! Y’all know I love to obsess over Marion, but we’ll give her a little break and spend some time marveling at Marcel. Peep the gallery for more! Le père de Marcel was competing again, and this time poppa Guillame won a show jumping prize– hence the look of total excitement from Marion in that one pic, lol. Awesomeness!
