The story of Kate Middleton‘s topless photos has kind of taken over the world, if only for the moment. Everyone’s talking about it and we’ve heard a lot of different views on the issue of privacy for celebrities and members of the Royal Family. It’s really interesting to see now, how this story is affecting other celebrity news as well. We’ve been following Halle Berry‘s custody battle with her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, which is centered on Halle‘s desire to move to France with full custody of their daughter Nahla. Now we’re hearing that since Kate Middleton‘s photo scandal was brought on by French paparazzi, Halle‘s claim that living in France will pose less of a paparazzi issue may be challenged.

Last month we learned that Seth MacFarlane has been selected as the host of this weekend’s 38th season premiere episode of Saturday Night Live. Yesterday, we saw a photo of Frank Ocean rehearsing as the musical guest. Today we get to check out the promo videos released for this weekend’s episode of SNL and both Seth and Frank are featured in the clips. I’m very bummed to see that the promos are not funny … at all. But I suppose we can hope that the episode itself will contain actual humor. I mean … right? Meh. Even if not, we can be sure that Frank Ocean will deliver an amazing performance so … yeah. Check out the video above and see what you think. Does this video give you hope that this weekend’s ep of SNL will be worth watching?
Earlier today we learned that Closer magazine has published a set of topless photos of Kate Middleton that were taken without her knowledge as she holidayed with her husband Prince William in Provence, France last week. In the wake of the release of those photos, the British Royal Family has voiced their outrage at the photos … but the work of the royal family carries on. Prince William and his wife Kate made their way to Kuala Lumpur to celebrate Queen Elizabeth‘s Diamond Jubliee with a tea party … and as you can see below, Kate was as smiley as can be. More »
Zachary Quinto, the star of the NBC series Heroes and the FX series American Horror Story: Asylum, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Out magazine. In the coverstory feature, Zachary talks about coming out as a gay man … and he confirms for the first time ever that he is dating actor Jonathan Groff (Glee, Boss). Zac and Jon have been photographed together for some time now but neither one has talked publicly about the relationship. Click below to see photos from Zachary‘s Out photospread and read some excerpts from his interview. More »
May the gods bless the ladies over at Fashionista. They had the brilliant idea of getting a super new, super hot male model to chronicle his very first NY Fashion Week and what a week it was! The model… whose name escapes me because I never actually read the article and am now going back to do that, having already pulled all the crazy sexy pictures that I want for the gallery… (pause) Melton, yes that’s right! Melton (somebody make an M&M joke NOW) grew up an army brat, then started playing football for Kansas State University. But he had (and still has) dreams of becoming an actor, and so attended an open casting call, and got scouted by a modeling agency. And the rest is history! See? I was totally paying attention to the article. Ish. But seriously, peep the gallery. His photos are something of legend. Happy Friday ladies and gents :)
Okay fine. I’ll make the M&M joke: He Meltons Your Mouth, Not In Your Hands
It’s Friday night folks. Some people are hitting up the clubs. Others, like my ridiculously studious bff Michelle are in class (whaaat?!), and some of us will be right here… enjoying the fourth episode of The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl, season two. Issa Rae is back at it as our glorious anti-hero and I cannot wait to see what’s popping off with J right now! The last time we saw her was in episode three, and she was being a huge disappointment to her mom, not wrapping her hair (lmao), and kind of failing in the job department. Sigh, we’ve all been there J! And apparently, in this episode J decides to start looking for a new job but as things start to look up, White Jay throws some inevitable curveball. I’m about 60 seconds in and the opening performance is something of legend!!! Cannot wait to hear what you guys think of the new episode! Enjoy! And OMG wait, I just got lost in a vortex and ended up on Issa Rae‘s blog and am now experiencing something called#RatchetpieceTheatre. Juicy J is the subject. Please join me inside after watching the above video. OMG.
Earlier this month we got our first look at the promo images from Glee‘s upcoming NEW Britney Spears tribute episode, titled Britney 2.0, and a couple of days later we got to hear the Glee versions of the Britney songs Gimme More and Boys. Today we get to see the promo video for the Britney 2.0 episode as we count down the days to the ep’s premiere next week. Glee will pay homage to the music of Britney Spears next Tuesday, it’s an episode you DON’T want to miss. This video promo may be short but OMG is it effective.

Zac Efron is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of BlackBook magazine. As you can see below, Zac posed with a few different animals — from the cuddly and cute to the not-quite-so-cuddly and scary — for his photospread. I’m not sure why exactly but since Jennifer Lawrence posed with a bunch of birds for W magazine, it would seem that posing with animals is the new thing these days. But I digress … in Zac‘s feature interview, he talks about how he no longer wants to be a heartthrob … because he’d rather be an artist. I can appreciate that. Click below to see Zac‘s BlackBook photos and read some excerpts from his coverstory interview. More »
