This is so odd
It’s amazing how we get attached to certain aspects of our favorite celebrities. Nick Offerman AKA Ron Swanson has done the unthinkable, and shaved. He has shaved, and I’m sorry to have to break it to all of you Parks and Recreation fans, and share these photos with you from the Sundance Film Festival. It’s terrifying, disturbing, and wait… no. Actually, he looks kind of amazing. And by “amazing” I mean “hot,” but don’t judge me. Click inside for more!
I’ve learned that if you take a picture of a cute baby doing anything, or wearing anything, it’s instantly the cutest thing ever. Babies with flowers, dancing babies, babies sitting by a window, just after a snowstorm—all cute. One thing I haven’t tried yet, is a baby with breast implants. Luckily, new mom Jenni WOWW Farley took care of that one for me. Her new baby Meilani just got the Jersey Shore makeover of a lifetime, and I ummm yeah. Okay. Click inside for more!
"im a young man and to me the world is a pretty messed up place"
One Direction‘s Liam Payne got to thinking (and lots of drinking) last night and came to the conclusion that he really wants to use his immense fame for the betterment of mankind. Liam came to this conclusion last night and decided to share his ample thoughts with his followers on Twitter. Payne‘s desire to be a humanitarian was much to large to be contained by Twitter‘s 140 character limit, so his missive had to be shared on Twitlonger. Deep thoughts, indeed. Today, after he sobered up, Liam posted on Twitter again acknowledging that his lofty message was brought about by mixing “whisky with political films” so it’s unclear if his goals to help save the world will be realized or not. Click below to read Liam’s tweets and see just how inspirational he can been when he is piss drunk. More »

Everyone is STILL talking about her Instagram posts
I’m very interested in hearing the different reactions to Amber Rose‘s photos because these responses give you a sense of how the world sees women, and women who are mothers. Some of you said if Amber (AKA Stifler’s Mom) has it, she should flaunt it—regardless of whether or not she has a child. PITNBr Linnea made the argument that being “sexy” is not necessarily synonymous with being naked—an excellent point. Well, Amber Rose has responded, and so has her estranged husband Wiz Khalifa.

The Michael Kors blazer everyone's talking about
This is such a fun story to report. First of all, I’m going to make yet another bold statement about The Good Wife: if you are still not watching this show, and you watch any other television shows, we simply cannot be friends. I’m working on a piece right now (in my head, granted) about how the show is both radically feminist, and radically pro-black, based on a number of things, but especially the most recent episode. It is just the best friggen show, and I love that the writers are using their platform to make bold, important statements. So, I was thrilled to see that the series inadvertently got a shouts-out when Michelle Obama wore a very memorable Michael Kors dress that Julianna Margulies‘ Alicia Florrick rocked a few episodes back.

AKA Why I love Cheryl Boone Isaacs
I just saw a tweet sent out from Bloomberg Business using the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag, and I was once again reminded of the power of Twitter. The Academy Awards usually reflect a huge lack of diversity in Hollywood and the filmmaking world in general. Chris Rock’s Hollywood Reporter essay keeps coming to mind. People don’t expect a ton of diversity when the nominations are announced, but this year there were some glaring omissions (mainly with the cast and director of Selma, a Best Picture nominee), and people are recognizing this as the least diverse Oscar nominations we’ve had since 1998. I remember glowing and tingling with pride when, in 2013, Cheryl Boone Isaacs became the first African-American President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), and I was hoping it meant, well, some kind of change. And maybe it does. Isaacs is using her platform to (carefully) speak out about how the Oscars can change. Click inside for more.
Along with AC/DC, Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande and more
Last month, in one of the first interviews she gave after a number of her unfinished demo songs were leaked online, Madonna teased that she might be performing at the 2015 Grammy Awards. Last night, ahead of the official announcement by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, Madonna announced officially that she will be performing at the Grammy Awards next month. Following her announcement on social media, NARAS announced that AC/DC, Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran and Eric Church are among the first performers confirmed — along with Madonna — for the Grammys this year.
