The cast of the 18th season of Dancing with the Stars was revealed this morning and at first look, it would appear that DWTS is pretty light on actual stars. The season 18 cast is comprised of Olympic athletes, reality TV stars, former child stars and Billy Dee Williams (who, IMHO, is the most famous person on the cast). A couple of weeks ago, it was reported that DWTS has decided to replace longtime host Brooke Burke-Charvet with new host Erin Andrews, so the show is going thru a bit of a shake-up in an attempt to win more viewers. But, with a cast like this … I can’t say that I, in particular, am inspired to watch the new season of the show. Click below to find out which “stars” will be dancing on the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars. More »
Idina Menzel paid a visit to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night to perform her Academy Award-winning song Let It Go from the Academy Award-winning animated film Frozen and as you can see in the video embedded above, she did so with a little backup from Jimmy and The Roots. Altogether, this gang of musicians performed the song while playing classroom instruments (a bit that Jimmy carried over from his days as host of Late Night) and gave the tune new life. Idina sang the Hell out of the song, as she is wont to do, while Jimmy and The Roots provided the instrumentation. Watch the performance above but you may want to turn down your volume, when Idina belts out those big notes, she really belts them out. Goooood morning!
So, remember that epic super celebrity selfie that Ellen DeGeneres snapped along with Julia Roberts, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong’o, Meryl Streep, et al. during the Academy Awards telecast last night? Well, it turns out that another big name celeb tried to get in on the selfie fun but she was too short to make it in the photo. As you can see below, Liza Minnelli tried to get in the photo but … alas, she was too short to be seen. More »

Latino pop superstars Ricky Martin and Jennifer Lopez are featured guests on Wisin‘s new single Adrenalina and as you can see in the video embedded above, they are also featured stars in the just-released music video for the song. For some reason, mostly likely because of the high level of Latinoness in the video, Ricky and J. Lo get really amorous together in this video … like, to the point where Ricky felt compelled to lick Jennifer‘s ear. I suppose it’s possible that Ricky is merely playing a straight character in the video and that’s where this licking business comes from but … I really do think the latino level in the video is to blame. Check out this video for Adrenalina and see what you think. Does video make you want to lick the person closest to you right now?

Congratulations are in order for actress Scarlett Johansson and her fiancée of about 6 months Roman Dauriac because we learn today that the couple are pregnant with their first child together. As you may recall, we first learned back in November of 2012 that ScarJo had dumped her previous guy Nate Naylor for a sexy French journalist named Roman (not Leonardo DiCaprio) … about a year later, the couple got engaged to be married … today, we learn that they’re pregs. At this point, Scarlett‘s pregnancy has yet to be officially confirmed but E! News is citing sources close to the couple for news of her pregnancy. More »
Last night, during the 2014 Academy Awards telecast, host Ellen DeGeneres did a bit where she brought out pizza delivery into the crowd and she began handing out slices to some of the folks in the audience … folks like Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt and Jared Leto. Ellen made a specific attempt to get a slice of pizza to actress Kerry Washington because as a pregnant woman, she was likely very hungry. It turns out that Kerry did get her pizza fix in the Oscar green room last night and she shared a really cute photo on her official Instagram profile. Check it out below. More »

Our dear Britney Spears was not in attendance at the Academy Awards last night but she and her boyfriend David Lucado did make an appearance at Elton John‘s annual AIDS Foundation Oscar Party. As you can see in the gallery presented here, red-headed Britney brought the GLAM as only she can to Elton‘s soirée. Truth be told, I’m not really crazy about the neckline cut of Britney‘s dress but I think she did look fabulous last night. Check out the photos and let me know what you think of Britney‘s Oscar night look. Are you a fan?

My Oscar Sunday was a really nice, really relaxing one. My friend Tamar let me crash out on her couch so that we could watch the Academy Awards together but that was only part of the reason why I wanted to hang out with her. You see, I’ve started a new relationship and the only way that I would be able to spend my Oscar night with the date of my choosing was to met up with her, yes her, at Tam’s place. You see, me and Tam’s dog Lola have got a thing going on and, well … I think it might be turning serious. More »
