Get ready to gush. Miranda Kerr looks completely amazing in these photographs taken by her husband, actor Orlando Bloom, during their family’s stay in Wellington, New Zealand. Orlando is the kind of guy who– in between shooting for Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit (The Lord of the Rings prequel)– makes breakfast for his wife and son and takes photos like you wouldn’t believe. It all kind of makes sense, Orlando being cousin to famed photographer and documentary filmmaker Sebastian Copeland. Orlando also took a photography and sculpture course back in the day, and it’s totally paying off. Peep the gallery for more Miranda (and an especially beautiful photo of her with the couple’s son Flynn) and check out the New York Times article (Kerr Goes Kiwi) to learn more about Miranda‘s adventures in New Zealand. I’ve got an excerpt inside!
A few days ago Trent shared a short clip of this video, and today we get the super-official full version of Beyoncé singing live at the United Nations General Assembly Hall. The performance starts off (appropriately) somber, but really picks up as Queen Bey sings about the change she hopes to be in this world, and the change she hopes to see from the rest of us. Today is World Humanitarian Day. Be present in the world you call home and always remember that a random act of kindness can easily change the world.
The last Madge suit we heard about involved an allegedly hidden sample in Vogue, but this is a lawsuit of a different order. Her MDNA tour stopped in St. Petersburg, Russia on August 9, and Madonna had big plans for her performance. She used the stage to address new laws in Russia that ban so-called gay/lesbian ‘propaganda’ or promotion. After speaking out against this law and the homophobic mentality behind it, Madonna is being sued by Russian anti-gay groups for over $10 million. She has, apparently, corrupted their youth.

See? Academy Award winners can eff up too. Robert Richardson has received three Oscars for Best Cinematography for his brilliant work as a a director of photography on Hugo, The Aviator, and 1991′s JFK, respectively. Sadly, all that success did not translate to sound judgement last night, when he was allegedly driving drunk around Los Angeles. Deets inside.
Iggy Azalea fans are celebrating the release of the Australian-born artist’s EP release, titled Glory. But Iggy fans also got a special treat the other night when their fave femcee shared a previously recorded song on her twitter, Burgundy Sh-t. Iggy wrote, “a long time ago i made this. then i found it tonight. i still like it.” Iggy hasn’t turned me into a lover yet, but I’m always interested in what she’s got going on and I’m kinda digging this track! And given the subject matter, I’m wonder if she might be talking about her boo/former boo/unconfirmed boo A$AP Rocky. Hmmm… inquiring minds…
What do y’all think of the track? Is Iggy pining over Rocky, or just on her burgundy ish?
The guys over at Film School Rejects are calling this film ‘The Rich Man’s American Reunion,’ and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Although the story is familiar (even cliché — it’s about a high school reunion), the talented cast and a seemingly witty script might make this film a big hit. Channing Tatum, Rosario Dawson, Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza, Oscar Isaac, Justin Long, Ron Livingston, Kate Mara, Ari Graynor and Jenna Dewan-Tatum (yup!) will be doing their damndest to make us laugh, cry, and remember our own high school reunions (or dread the one that’s quickly approaching… aggghhh). The trailer seems a little bit all over the place, but who can ignore this cast?! LOVE Rosario. LOVE Aubrey Plaza (Seth Rogen‘s love interest in Funny People), and I rolls with pretty much everyone else on here as well. This could be a good thing or a bad thing– the trailer is sure to get the New Year’s Eve critique but this group of actors is, to me, a lil’ different. A lil’ more eclectic. Peep the trailer and tell me what you think!
10 Years hits theatres September 14.

Read on to see what MC Eiht has to say about this battle for the word Jeah. More »
