Amal Alamuddin became a celebrity this year when she married longtime bachelor/divorcé George Clooney and almost overnight went from being a very successful barrister (lawyer) to becoming Mrs. George Clooney. Journalist Barbara Walters is among Amal‘s fans and this year named her as one of the 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014. Walters did not bestow this “honor” on Alamuddin because she was a law clerk for now US Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor or because she represented Julian Assange as his attorney or because of her human rights work, no, she named Amal Alamuddin — sorry, Amal Clooney THE most fascinating person of the year because of the man that she married.

With only a couple weeks left of 2014, there has been speculation over whether or not a big musical artist would be releasing a surprise album in the manner that Beyoncé did this time last year. I think many folks have been looking in Rihanna‘s direction or Madonna‘s direction for a possible surprise album but I don’t think anyone was expecting D’Angelo to come out of nowhere and drop a new album. D’Angelo and The Vanguard (his new group, apparently) released a brand new album at the stroke of midnight last night without any warning. Black Messiah is now available for purchase and/or streaming in full below. More »
Just a few days ago, Iggy Azalea confirmed on Twitter that she is collaborating on a new song with our dear Britney Spears. In a backstage interview at KISS 108‘s Jingle Ball concert in Boston, MA over the weekend, Iggy offered more details about the song (as yet untitled), when it will be released (“the beginning of next year”, she says) and how the song came to be. Iggy revealed that she will be traveling to Las Vegas, NV to meet Britney for the first time — which is amazing that they haven’t even met in person yet! Watch the video above to see Iggy‘s full interview but she doesn’t start talking about Britney and the single until the 3:35 mark. Wee!!! New Britney Spears music is officially confirmed to be on the way!! AHHH!!
Jon Hamm has been promoting the upcoming Black Mirror Christmas special, and I cannot wait to tune in to this show. Black Mirror is a UK series that I’ve been hearing about, and now that it’s on Netflix I’m just waiting for the perfect day to binge-watch. One of my Paste writers wrote a great list about it, and it sounds so twisted and brilliant—it focuses on our addiction to technology, and online social connections. The fact that Jon Hamm has co-signed it now, also helps. In a recent interview, Hamm opened up about his unique position in Hollywood, and makes some great points. Click inside for more!
So now you have one more reason to go see the new Annie movie, which I’ve heard is really fun—plus Quvenzhané Wallis earned herself a Golden Globe nomination. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have reunited on-screen again, which makes this fake movie trailer some sort of bizarre, That 70s Show/Twilight crossover. Seriously, you have to see this to believe it. The new parents are the stars of the upcoming movie (just kidding, it’s not upcoming) MoonQuake Lake, and this parody trailer is so ridiculous, I love it. Click inside for more!
Instagram-stalking Swizz Beatz has many benefits, especially if you have any interest in the art world. He is constantly sharing his favorite, contemporary works, and loves introducing his followers to new artists. There is some incredibly dope stuff on his page. But last night, it was all about baby bumps, as Swizzy and his wife Alicia Keys are preparing to welcome their second child together. Click inside for more!
I knew it wouldn’t be fair if I made gallery of the 10 must-see celebrity looks of the week, and just alternated between Rihanna‘s two amazingly flawless looks from the Diamond Ball. So I had to bring in some other red carpet looks. And I’ll give it up to Felicity Jones, Reese Witherspoon, and the other ladies (oh, and Eddie Redmayne LE SIGH), all of whom had some great looks this week. But in truth, I only have eyes for RiRi‘s Zac Posen gowns. Peep the gallery for more!
For the first time in weeks, since the onslaught of rape and assault allegations were most recently leveled against him, Bill Cosby broke his silence in a tweet thanking his supporters. This weekend, Cosby spoke out more significantly by giving a statement to The New York Post when asked to comment on the numerous claims of assault that are being made against him, almost on an everyday basis. Click below to read what Bill Cosby has to say in the wake of the mounting allegations that continue to be made against him. More »

After my race yesterday morning, I got some work done (and some rest accomplished) before I made my way over to my friends Jessika and Jesse’s home for the Sons of Anakin holiday party. A couple of weeks ago, we club members drew names for a gift exchange and Jessika and Jesse graciously offered to host the party in their home. It was the first time since I joined that all of the members were able to spend time together outside of Disneyland. I always have a great time with these folks so it should come as zero surprise that last night was a lot of fun. More »
