A lot of you weighed in on the Daniel Tosh rape joke convo yesterday (catch up on the story here) and while I haven’t had a chance to respond to most of the comments I’ve read them all and I love that we have so many different takes on the story. As I said in the original post I watch Daniel Tosh and he stopped shocking me a while ago. All of his jokes are in bad taste; that’s his thing and he seeks to offend which may or may not be funny to a lot of people. But, given the reaction, I wondered if he had crossed some line in this case. People have been using the term “rape culture” and some consider his joke to be an example of our society’s dismissive attitude towards women and violence against them. Now that we’ve voiced our opinions, let’s hear from the wonderful world of twitter, inside.

Celebrity is a strange thing. Kelly Osbourne has taken to twitter over a black eye she received on an airplane. She claimed that the woman in front of her was reclining her seat, and practically knocked her out in doing so. Um. Huuuh? Please help me decipher these tweets (and the odd, odd life of a celebrity) inside.

Twit Pic O' The Day!
Ummmm, this is awkward. And while I now know that Trent already shared this pic (thank you Ashley!) this bikini body deserves further attention. First off, I’m doing a Britney post (which is strange enough and can only mean that Trent is somewhere writing an A.S.A.P. Rocky post), and I just saw something hotter than those Rihanna pics from Harper’s Bazaar. It’s Britney Bitch! tweeted somethin’ cray from Hawaii and I’m assuming she didn’t have time to airbrush the photo which means that she’s really working with all that. Awkward/Amazingness inside.
Aloha from Britwick
A few days ago we saw cute photos of Britney Spears, her fiancée Jason Trawick and her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James making their arrival in Maui, HI ahead of the 4th of July holiday and today we get to see a couple of new cute photos from the trip. Our dear Britney shared a couple of adorable personal photos with her fans on Twitter (by way of Instagram) that you simply MUST check out. The first photo is a family portrait. The second is a photo of just Brit and her boys. Check ‘em out below. More »

"I don't have any secrets I need kept anymore"
It is a Happy Independence Day for R&B singer Frank Ocean, of the music collective Odd Future, because today he is celebrating the freedom to be himself by coming out publicly as a gay man. Last night, Ocean posted a poignant and poetic letter on his official website making very clear that he is a gay man. Other outlets are suggesting Ocean‘s letter shows him to be bisexual but that is not at all the interpretation that I get from the letter. Like many gay men, Ocean tried to have romantic relationships with women (in order to try and fit in with convention) but, as his letter makes clear, those relationships were not fulfilling … not like the first love he felt for another man. Just because he attempted relationships with women does not, necessarily, make him bisexual. Click below to learn more about Frank Ocean‘s brave coming out and read the text of his beautiful letter in full. More »
The Queen of Denial
Lindsay Lohan was spotted this week on the SoCal set of the Elizabeth Taylor made for TV movie Liz & Dick all decked out regalia fit for a queen … Queen Cleopatra, that is. As you may know, Taylor famously played Cleopatra in the 1963 film of the same name and, clearly, L. Lo will portray that part of Taylor‘s life in this Lifetime TV movie. Today we hear from Lindsay herself that filming has wrapped on Liz & Dick so click below to see one of the last photos we’ll see of Lohan on the film set. More »
Yesterday, CNN reporter and talk show host Anderson Cooper came out publicly as a gay man. In the wake of the outpouring of support that he received on Twitter, Anderson posted a short but sweet tweet in appreciation of all of the messages he received. It should come as no surprise that Cooper is off on assignment this week so he’s a bit bizzy to be tweeting up a storm but he did take the time to share a quick message with fans, which you can read in full below.

Victoria Beckham shared a really cute photo on her official Twitter profile over the weekend that I have to pass along with all y’all. Apparently she decided to take her children to a water park/aquarium here in SoCal and she posed for a photo with a very friendly dolphin. If you look *very closely* you can see a hint of a smile on Vicki B‘s usually emotionless face … which is clear proof that she was enjoying herself. Check it out. More »
