Aaron Carter is in the news right now more than I ever thought he would be following his breakup with Hilary Duff in their child star days.
I guess all publicity is good publicity, which is a good thing for Carter, because right now he definitely isn't getting good publicity.

Carter decided to prove that he isn't a racist after he made a racially-fueled comment during a concert by ranting on Twitter about how he has... get ready to facepalm... Mexican friends.Image: Giphy
Oh yes, Carter went for the age old cliché of, "I'm not racist because I learned spanish for my ex-girlfriend" route.

The hilarity of that aside, I don't really actually think Carter is a racist. Sure, his decision to say, "Bye, Felipe," to the hispanic man disrupting his concert was in poor taste (It was a play on the popular Youtube video, "Bye, Felicia"). But Carter made an unwise decision that led to him being attacked by the man, who returned after being escorted from the venue and punched Carter twice in the head while Carter was on stage.
Luckily, Carter wasn't seriously injured and, as he wrote on Twitter, "My face is still pretty though and untouched." And no... I don't think he was joking.
Despite the strangeness of this whole thing, there is no doubt Carter is making a name for himself in 2017 both with his music and his eccentricities.

Bono is super proud of Mike Pence. At the Munich Security Conference, Bono, a longtime activist in the fight against AIDS, talked to Pence about the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief.
“Twice on the House floor you defended that,” Bono said. “That’s how we know you.”
“It was an extraordinary historic accomplishment,” the vice president, who captured the moment for posterity on Twitter, told Bono. “You played a leading role in carrying it forward.”

Sadly, this again goes to show that celebrities are clueless idiots. Had Bono did a bit of research, he would have realized Pence indirectly caused an HIV outbreak after defunding Planned Parenthood leading to their closures in Indiana’s Scott County. Without anywhere to get tested for HIV, this lead to a spike in infections which in turn lead Pence to declare a state of emergency.
Of course, Bono is also an activist for LGBTQ rights. Guess what? He didn’t say anything about that to Pence who has said that gay couples signaled a “societal collapse”, opposed a law that would prohibit discrimination against gays in the workplace, opposed a repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’ Tell and rejected the Obama administration’s directive on transgender bathrooms.
Naturally, Twitter had something to say.

As more and more of your favorite stars hop on the Snapchat wagon, figuring out how to add them to your friends list can become a difficult task. Celebrities use the social media platform to share sexy selfies, funny videos, or behind-the-scenes footage, but unlike Instagram and Twitter, there are no verified accounts, so trying to hunt them down can seem like an endless mission.

Wow, that’s a lot of green screen and CGI.
The story of King Arthur has a rocky big screen track record, which is what makes Warner Bros.’ decision to give the property to notable oddball director Guy Ritchie so head-scratching. Ritchie is a highly stylized filmmaker with some unique flavors that can be pretty awesome. But his individualistic style paints this iteration of the legendary king in a less than appealing light.
Check out the trailer below to make up your own mind about this new take on the classic character.
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword stars Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) as the titular leader in this break-from-tradition retelling that will follow Arthur’s rise from the streets to the throne. When Arthur’s father is murdered, his uncle Vortigern (Jude Law) assumes power. With his birthright stolen, Arthur grows up in the back alleys of the city with no real understanding of who he truly is. But his life is changed forever when he pulls Excalibur from stone and must confront his destiny.
Alongside Hunnam, the film also stars Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Djimon Hounson, Aidan Gillen, Jude Law and Eric Bana.
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword will hit theaters on May 12.
Getting old isn't for the weak, and David Cassidy is learning it the hard way.
More: The Partridge Family Star David Cassidy Pleads Guilty to DWI
Cassidy opened up to People magazine about his dementia diagnosis, which explains the strange performance he had in Agoura Hills, Calif. just a few days back in which he forgot the lyrics to his own songs and fell off the stage.
"I was in denial, but a part of me always knew this was coming," Cassidy told the outlet. Both his grandfather and grandmother also suffered from the disease.
He said he watched their demise and "feared I would end up that way."
Initially after news of Cassidy's troubling concert surfaced, it was thought Cassidy was abusing alcohol again. It was an addiction he battled just a few years ago after a string of DUIs landed him in court-ordered rehab in 2014. He and his wife of 23 years, Sue Shifrin-Cassidy, also called it quits at the end of 2014. Unfortunately, things only got worse for Cassidy from there. He filed for bankruptcy in 2015 and was charged with a hit-and-run in October 2015.

But Cassidy told People he's focusing on enjoying life right now.
"I want to focus on what I am, who I am and how I’ve been without any distractions," he said. "I want to love. I want to enjoy life."
Cassidy is scheduled to continue his concert tour with three more performances throughout the country this year in March and June. It's unclear as of now if he is healthy enough to continue his tour, but he did continue with his performance last night in Santa Barbara. No word yet if that performance went more smoothly.

Brenda Buttner, a senior business correspondent and the host of Bulls & Bears on Fox News, died of cancer on Monday.
She was 55 years old.
With a heavy heart, Fox News colleague Neil Cavuto passed along this sad news to viewers a couple hours ago, via an emotional tribute to Buttner on his show.
“Brenda was among the very first to put a kind female face to this once-staid old male batch of the business,” Cavuto said, adding:
“She took stock of life more than stock in life.”
A financial reporter, Buttner graduated from Harvard University in 1983 and spent two years as a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University, where she graduated with high honors in politics and economics.
She kicked off her professional career at an NBC affiliate in Reno, Nevada, prior to hosting CNBC’s The Money Club and serving as a a contributor to that network from 1990 to 1998.
The New Jersey resident joined Fox News in 2000 and served as a senior business correspondent there ever since.
“In her sickest moments, battling an unrelenting cancer, there was Brenda, cheering you on,” Cavuto added on air.
"Business journalism is never going to be the same. I just don’t know, now that she’s gone, whether we’ll ever be."
Others who knew Buttner well also paid tribute to her on social media.
“She loved rainy days, cloudy places, motorcycles and her children most of all," wrote ex-Fox News commentator Tobin Smith on Facebook.
"I told her that I would spread a few of her ashes in her beloved Edinborough outside her favorite pub...she loved that idea.
"She called me her ‘office husband’ and I told her that ‘all I got was crap from her and none the benefits’ and she would laugh a hearty obscenity in response...
"My role in her life the last few years was to make her laugh...and I accomplished that goal on many phone calls. She was the type of friend you could not speak with with for months and then talk like we had just left off from yesterday.
"My dear Brenda Buttner..she was the little sister I never had. I miss her terribly and yet she is in my heart forever and an inspiration to all that knew her and her battle."
Eric Bolling, another Fox News co-worker, Tweeted his condolences Monday afternoon after the news broke.
“Our colleague and my friend Brenda Buttner passed today," he wrote. "She fought cancer heroically. RIP Brenda. We will miss you."
And Greta Van Susteren wrote simply: "We will all miss Brenda."
The late reporter is survived by her two daughters.
May Brenda Buttner rest in peace.
Prince William and Kate Middleton have been together for almost 14 years now (despite that one little breakup), and we have been loving all of the memories they've made in their time together so far. We've seen a wedding, two beautiful children, numerous trips around the world, and adorable PDA. But while so many wonderful things have happened for the couple since they tied the knot in April 2011, everyone always loves to relive a good proposal story. So how exactly did William pop the question? During the pair's vacation in Kenya in October 2010, the prince asked Kate to marry him in their secluded log cabin, where he presented her with a 12-carat oval blue Ceylon sapphire ring, the same one worn by his late mother, Princess Diana.
The beautiful location was also extra special, as it holds a dear place in William's heart. He opened up about why he chose to do it in Africa during an interview with CNN, explaining, "I regularly daydream. Africa is definitely one of the places I go to. It does completely settle me down. [Kate] understands what it means to me being in Africa, and my love of conservation." But while it all came together perfectly, William also admitted that he sort of winged the whole thing. "I didn't really plan it that far in advance," he continued. "I just knew I wanted it to feel comfortable where I did it and I wanted it to mean something, other than just the act of getting engaged." And it turns out that Kate didn't see it coming either. "We were out there with friends, so I really didn't expect it at all," she told Britain's ITV News. "It was a total shock when it came. Very excited!"

From Tina Fey and Alicia Keys to Emma Watson and Meryl Streep, these stars have spoken out against sexism, fought for women's rights, and much more.
Here's a list of 22 celebrities who proved without a doubt that the future is female!1. Tina Fey Tina Fey's career in and of itself is inspiring, and she's known for shutting down sexism in more than just her writing. At the Center for Reproductive Rights Inaugural Gala in New York City in 2012, she was quoted saying, "“And if I have to listen to one more grey-faced man with a $2 haircut explain to me what rape is,” Fey said, “I’m going to lose my mind!” 2. Amy Poehler In all honesty, everything about Amy Poehler proves the future is email, but her foundation, "Amy Poehler's Smart Girls," is a pretty perfect example. 3. Jennifer Lawrence Jennifer Lawrence stood up for what was right when it came ot equal pay. She published an essay in Lena Dunham’s newsletter about the issue. Later, she spoke up about the word "feminism" stating, “I don’t know why that word is so scary to people... It shouldn’t be, because it just means equality.” 4. Kerry Washington Kerry Washington has spoken about women's rights on several occasions, and she's not been shy about her political views. Here's a quote from her op-ed piece in The Daily Beast: "We, the people, especially us women, have to make sure our leaders know how we feel, what we think and what we care about. Together, we need to stand up for the kind of America we want — one where women and girls are equal, strong and proud, and where we all have a president who has our back." 5. Scarlett Johansson Scarlett Johansson is sick of inappropriate questions. "Now, were you able to wear… undergarments?" a reporter asked her about a film. Her response? "What’s going on? You’re like the fifth person to ask me that question. Since when did people start asking each other in this industry about their underwear?" 6. Taylor Swift Taylor Swift has had some of the best possible responses to sexism, including the perfect comeback to someone pointing out that most of her songs are about ex-boyfriends. "I think, frankly, that's a very sexist angle to take. No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says that about Bruno Mars. They're all writing songs about their exes, their girlfriends, their love life, and no one raises a red flag there." View Slideshow
Over the weekend, Angelina Jolie spoke publicly about her divorce from Brad Pitt for the first time.
It's been months since the couple parted ways following a still-mysterious confrontation between Pitt and the couple's eldest son aboard a private jet, but until this week, both actors have refrained from speaking about the split publicly.
That's not terribly surprising, considering how closely Pitt and Jolie guarded the details of their personal lives were throughout their marriage.
Of course, true privacy isn't possible at that level of fame, which means that in the absence of on-the-record updates from the tabloid media will meet the demand for Brad and Angie news with unsubstantiated rumors.
We've already heard (almost certainly bogus) reports that Brad is dating Kate Hudson.
Now it's Angie's turn for a made-up rebound relationship.
And gossip columnists have decided to set her up with an even more high profile and unlikely new boo:
Yes, according to Star magazine, Angelina is dating Jared Leto.
To be clear, we wouldn't put it past her, and when Jolie does move on, it will probably be with someone famous and weird as hell, not unlike Leto.
We just don't think it's happening yet.
A source tells the magazine that Angie and Jared aren't just hooking up, they're rushing headlong into a serious relationship:
“The word is they spoke several times on the phone before meeting up in L.A. for dinner, and they’ve been seeing each other whenever they can since then," says one source.
"Angie’s been telling friends Jared has a special way of making her feel good about herself.”
Another insider adds:
“He’s been good for her, helping put a smile back on Angie’s face.”
Yes, he's putting a smile on that face of hers.
We can't help but thing the person who made this source up got Jared confused with Heath Ledger.
Anyway, as we said, this almost certainly BS, but we wouldn't go so far as to say it's impossible.
This is a woman who went from Billy Bob Thornton to Brad Pitt.
In a way, Jared Leto is the next logical step.
Which would make this the only time there was anything logical about Jared Leto.

Lots of love and kisses x." She also shared a throwback photo of the birthday boy with his two brothers, Brooklyn and Romeo. Cruz's big day comes on the heels of the Beckham family's ski vacation in Canada.

Chrissy Teigen had husband John Legend by her side as she celebrated her appearance in this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue at a special launch party in NYC on Thursday night. The model, who graces the pages for the eighth time, showed off her gorgeous grin as she and John posed for photos together and with mother-daughter duo Christie Brinkley and Sailor Brinkley-Cook, who both also show off their bikini bodies in the annual issue. Chrissy has been open about her nervousness with posing for Sports Illustrated this year, as it's the first time she's done "bikini stuff" since giving birth to her and John's daughter, Luna; while at first she told editor MJ Day that she "would only shoot one-pieces," Chrissy quickly fell back into her comfort zone and slipped into some seriously sexy bikinis. Keep reading to see photos from her night out.

Angelina Jolie has been an open book during her recent trip to Cambodia. The By the Sea actress flew to the country with her six children - Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8 - to promote her new film, First They Killed My Father. While spending time with BBC World News journalist Yalda Hakim, Angelina opened up about how she's coping since her split from Brad Pitt, calling the time "difficult" but insisting they will "forever be a family." She also had some lighter moments when she cooked and ate tarantulas and scorpions with her kids, giving people a lovely glimpse into their everyday banter. Knox's reaction? "[It tastes like] dry chips. Yeah, like, flavorless chips." Watch the whole exotic dining experience above (if you can stomach it).
Everything That Has Happened Since Angelina Jolie Filed For Divorce From Brad Pitt
Beyoncé and Jay Z made a family outing with their daughter Blue Ivy on Sunday night. The trio was spotted sitting courtside to check out the NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans and looked to be having a fun time in their front-row seats. Beyoncé covered her growing baby bump in jeans and a floaty Gucci kimono while Blue looked equally adorable in a green Gucci dress and denim jacket. The noted basketball fans were likely in the building to cheer on their pal LeBron James, who led the Eastern Conference against Warriors stars Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant on the Western Conference. At one point, they shared a sweet moment while being introduced and projected on the big screen. Though Blue seemed a little unimpressed with the game overall - it's not like LeBron is that cool or anything - she did have a lot of fun distractions, eating cotton candy and Skittles, playing with a paper fan, and even getting to meet the mascot.
We got a glimpse of Beyoncé on a casual shopping trip in LA last week before the Knowles-Carter clan jetted off to New Orleans to attend a Saint Heron event hosted by younger sister Solange on Saturday night. Their time in The Big Easy comes nearly a week after Beyoncé made headlines by gracing the Grammys stage with a stunning performance of "Sandcastles" and "Love Drought" and being beat out by Adele for the album of the year award. Despite the loss, she, Jay Z, and Blue all seemed to have a great time at the ceremony and afterparty.

4 Celebrities Who Were Bold Enough to Approach Queen Blue Ivy at the Grammys
After shocking the world in September 2016 by filing for divorce from Brad Pitt following 11 years together and two years of marriage, Angelina Jolie is finally opening up about her new family dynamic. During an interview with BBC World News that was released on Sunday, the actress was asked about the split by reporter Yalda Hakim. "I don't want to say very much about that, except to say it was a very difficult time," Angelina said. "We are a family and we will always be a family, and we will get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it."
Angelina, who was in Cambodia this week to promote her new film, First They Killed My Father, with her children, continued, "Many, many people find themselves in this situation. My whole, my family . . . we've all being through a difficult time. My focus is my children, our children . . . and my focus is finding this way through. We are and forever will be a family. I am coping with finding a way through to make sure that this somehow makes us stronger and closer. It's been a difficult few months. Right now, I'm going through a moment when just everybody's in my room. Two dogs, two hamsters and two children at the moment. It's wonderful. But, usually, I just wake up trying to figure out who's going to get [the] dog out, who's going to start the pancakes and did anybody brush their teeth."
The star was also asked about where she sees herself in five years, joking that she'll be outnumbered in a house of teenagers. "At that stage, I hope just standing," she said. "In five years' time I would like to be traveling around the world visiting my children, hoping that they're just happy and doing really interesting things, and I imagine in many different parts of the world, and I'll be supporting them. Everything I do I hope is that I represent something, and I represent the right things to my children, and give them the right sense of what they're capable of, and the world as it should be seen. Not through the prism of Hollywood or through a certain kind of life, but really take them into the world, where they have a really good sense and become rounded people."
Bet You Forgot About Angelina Jolie's Other Famous Flings
In nearly every post about St. Angie Jolie, someone always says that trick needs to eat something. Well, she finally took that advice.
During that BBC interview in Cambodia where Angie said words (that her team probably spent 45 hours on writing for her) about the fall of Brangelina, she did a little cooking segment where she fried up some Cambodian delicacies. With help from three of her kids (Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox), Chef St. Dame Angie fried up some tarantulas, crickets and spiders and said that the first she time she gobbled down on bugs was when she visited Cambodia. After Knox chewed on a bug that his mom cooked up, he said that it tastes like “flavorless chips.” It’s a good thing for Knox that he’s a chosen one, because if he wasn’t, he would’ve felt the wrath of God for hating on Chef St. Dame Angie’s cooking like that.

Monday marked what would have been Kurt Cobain's 50th birthday, and his daughter, Frances Bean, paid tribute to him in a beautiful way. The 24-year-old, who was not even two when her father committed suicide in April 1994, posted a letter she wrote to her dad on Instagram. "Today would have been your 50th birthday," she wrote. "You are loved and you are missed. Thank you for giving me the gift of life. Forever your daughter, Frances Bean Cobain." Beautiful.
February 20th 2017. Happy Birthday.

Jolie, 41, recently broke down while talking about fighting her ex, Brad Pitt, for custody of their six kids while they go through an ugly divorce, but she seemed right at home preparing and cooking the insects.
“I think it’s always been a part of the diet, the bugs,” Jolie explained on the BBC video while promoting her movie, First They Killed My Father, shot in the country from which she adopted her oldest son, Maddox, when she cooked up the meal.

“But I think there is a truth to the survival during the war of course. When people were being starved they were able to survive on things like this and they did.”
Jolie also told her tale of how she learned to eat bugs.
“I first had them when I was first in the [Cambodia]. Crickets, you start with crickets. Crickets and a beer. And then you move up to tarantulas,” she said with a laugh.
While her daughter Vivienne helped put one in the frying pan Shiloh ate a spider.
“It’s actually really good, the flavor,” Jolie said, but laughingly added: “It’s hard to chew the scorpion.”
Check out the video of Angelina cooking bugs and feeding them to her children.

Denzel Washington is a Hollywood icon. In addition to the many classic films he's starred in, he also has seven Oscar nominations under his belt, two wins, one beautiful wife, and four children. Many of the 62-year-old actor's roles have been extremely badass, giving him that whole sexy protector vibe (if he was your current boyfriend, your ex-boyfriend should be extremely nervous). While most people with a pulse can't get enough of him on the big screen, we also have a soft spot for him in real life. Denzel has always been attractive (that smile!), and we have 20 moments right here that prove that's not about to change.

Brittany Love hails from the University of Kentucky and is studying Kinesiology. She would eventually like to become a pediatric oncologist and work for an organization like St. Jude. She’s also the founding member of Alpha Chi Omega and plays intramural sports at UK.
Yet life wasn’t always easy for Brittany. Her grandfather was murdered when she was younger and her dad was tragically killed when he was hit by a car. She also grew up in an area “overrun by drugs and ignorance,” but she’s here today to run for Miss COED 2017 to use it as a platform; she wants others to know that your past does not define you and to always work hard and chase your dreams.
Although Brittany sounds like an incredible lady (which she is), I’ll leave you with a few more fun facts about our girl reppin’ the SEC before you make a decision.If she could change one thing about the world, it would be the hate and superiority some people feel due to race, religion, gender, political views, etc. She’s the Dance Chair and Greek Song Chair in Alpha Chi Omega. Her biggest pet peeve is when people are passive aggressive. Amen! She has a TON of school pride and says UK feels like home.
Don’t forget to check back on Wednesday, February 22 to vote in the finals of Miss COED 2017. You’ll be able to vote for multiple girls once a day for two weeks, so make your voices heard.

Milo Yiannopoulos has made a career out of courting controversy, but today, the alt-right provocateur finds himself on wrong side of a raging scandal that may bring his time in the spotlight to an abrupt end.
In recent months, Yiannopoulos - an editor at Breitbart News - has become a household name due in large part to his incessant trolling of politicians and celebrities with whom he disagrees.
The most baffling example of this tired routine was Yiannopolulos' spat with Leslie Jones of Saturday Night Live, whom he publicly denigrated for having the audacity to star in a movie.
That particular bullying campaign led to Yiannopoulos getting banned from Twitter, and many hoped that would be the last they'd hear from the alt-right's most articulate mouthpiece.
Unfortunately, in the months that followed, Yiannopoulos' far-right beliefs entered the political mainstream, and the 32-year-old became an inescapable media presence.
This past week may have been the biggest of Yiannopoulous' career, as his interview with Bill Maher went viral, and he landed a keynote speaking slot at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference.
However, it now looks as though Milo's meteoric rise may have come to a halt thanks to some shocking comments he made regarding sex with minors.
In a podcast interview that resurfaced last night, Yiannopoulos seemed to advocate sexual relationships between “younger boys and older men.”
Not surprisingly, CPAC organizers withdrew their speaking invitation shortly thereafter:
“Due to the revelation of an offensive video in the past 24 hours condoning pedophilia, the American Conservative Union has decided to rescind the invitation,” reads a statement issued by the organization.
Yiannopoulos took to Facebook to apologize for - but also to defend - his statement:
“I am a gay man, and a child abuse victim,” he wrote.
“My own experiences as a victim led me to believe I could say anything I wanted to on this subject, no matter how outrageous."
"But I understand that my usual blend of British sarcasm, provocation and gallows humor might have come across as flippancy, a lack of care for other victims or, worse, ‘advocacy.’”
Yiannopoulos has described being molested by a priest as a young student at a Catholic school, but he has repeatedly denied being a victim, and speaks of the experience in positive terms.
Many other prominent conservatives, including President Trump, are still scheduled to appear at CPAC.View Slideshow: Donald Trump Impeachment Party: Who’s Attending?
Disney is doing live-action remakes of pretty much all their cartoon movies, because Mickey Mouse is a greedy money whore who knows that fools will throw their cash at anything with the Disney logo on it. Disney is working on a live-action The Little Mermaid, and over the weekend, Lindsay Lohan proved once again that’s she’s the corner where delusion and desperate meet when she said on Instagram that she wants be in it. No, LiLo doesn’t think she should play one of the polyps in Ursula’s garden of poor unfortunate souls. LiLo wants to be 16-year-old Ariel. You know, that idea isn’t that crazy. I mean, Ariel is a klepto and most of her body is covered with slimy scales.
On her Instagram page, LiLo put a beyond filtered picture of her next to a picture of cartoon Ariel, and said in the original caption that Bill Condon should direct, Ali Lohan should do a song for the soundtrack and Kat Graham should play Ursula (?????):
I will sing again, as #ariel #thelittlemermaid @disney approve that #billcondon directs it along with my sister @alianamusic singing the theme song for the soundtrack. also @kgrahamsfb plays Ursula. Simply because, she is the best. take one. @disneystudios
Erdoğan’s biggest fan must have known that it’s dumb to share her genius ideas for FREE, because she deleted that caption and replaced it with a simple one:
A post shared by Lindsay Lohan (@lindsaylohan) on Feb 19, 2017 at 3:24am PST
If LiLo starred in Disney’s The Little Mermess, then Aaron Carter should play Prince Eric, one of her crotch crabs should play Sebastian and Charlie Sheen should play King Triton. That movie would only be 20 minutes long, because Ariel would end up getting jailed after hitting a seahorse in the throat with a thingamabob at a club, and Ursula would never want her voice. The only way Ursula would want Ariel’s voice is if she was planning on entering a Will Arnett sound-alike contest. I’d watch all 20 minutes of The Little Mermess too, several times.

Hey queen. I've actually been wanting to write this for a while now, but I just couldn't find the right words. No matter how hard I tried to gather my feelings and string sentences together, nothing seemed to properly convey what I wanted to say, and so many others seemed to be expressing it better than I could. But I'm ready now. I'm not sure if it was your epic maternity shoot or Grammys loss that finally inspired me, but I'm ready to tell you how proud I am of you for fighting the good fight and using your platform to raise up those of us who are continually made to feel as if we are "less than." To say that you make me feel proud to be a black woman is an understatement. You create music that empowers me and art that emboldens me. Your dedication to making sure I see myself represented in the world pushes me to demand the same of my employers, my media, and my surroundings.Yet people will call you "overrated," "self-absorbed," "an egomaniac," or worst of all, "talentless." I like to think the people who call you talentless may not have eyes or ears, but I digress.
Lemonade was the best album of the year, hands down. And I know you know that. I don't even believe you needed a Grammy to validate your work, which is why you managed to stay so composed and graceful while Adele accepted the award and praised the sh*t out of you during her speech. Though it was hard not to take your loss personally, your poise in the face of adversity was another boss move in your history of boss moves, yet another thing to add to the running list in my head titled "What Would Beyoncé Do?".
There wasn't one part of it that didn't touch my heart, soothe my soul, or remind me that despite the narrative assigned to me at birth, I am more than the color of my skin.I'm sure you can speak to how out of touch the Grammys have become, how tone-deaf they've been when it comes to recognizing black artists, and how their dedication to rewarding mainstream - or as Adele herself put it, "old fashioned" - music has driven many musicians away from even attending the show. Lemonade was the best album of the year, but it was also the most culturally significant album of the year - and while I wish those two things could be more intertwined in the Recording Academy's eyes, it really doesn't matter. It's one of the most important bodies of work that I have ever seen or heard in my life. It was a f*cking masterpiece. There wasn't one part of it that didn't touch my heart, soothe my soul, or remind me that despite the narrative assigned to me at birth, I am more than the color of my skin. I am more than a stereotype. It's OK for me to be angry and vulnerable, and it's OK for me to crumble, as long as I get back up. I want you to know that Lemonade filled me with a pride and self-respect I was afraid I'd never come by.

But back to the Grammys. Not 10 seconds after you emerged on stage giving us full Yoruba realness and cradling those two future CEOs inside you did social media light up with the same old tired-ass insults. I reminded myself that you probably wouldn't want me to waste my time explaining that you're weren't "trying to be the Virgin Mary," but instead channeling Oshun, the African goddess of love and sweet waters who influences emotional healing and pregnancy and also represents your sign, Virgo. And I know you don't want me arguing with your fault-finders, the same ones who thought they were being cute by boycotting you and who still can't seem to understand that Lemonade is not for them to understand. I should know better than to get distracted by the haters; I should be twirling on them instead, right? It's hard to ignore them, but at the end of the day, their ignorance can not quell your enormous influence. Their insensitivity can not dull our shine. You taught me that.
I won't keep you - you're obviously crazy busy. I just needed you to know that yes, I have thrown my middle fingers up to "Sorry," copied your "Hold Up" look for Halloween, and cried my eyes out to those tiny cracks in your voice during "Sandcastles," but my love for you and Lemonade goes deeper than that. I needed you to know that I will be forever grateful for your artistic vision, for your commitment to showing the world that there is more than one way to be a woman, for "giving a voice to the pain" and helping me remember that I might be misunderstood, but I am also magic. I just needed you to know. I'm sorry it took me so long.
Love you like XO,

Once again, Rob Kardashian's health could be in serious danger, and reportedly, his family is super-worried he's going to end up hospitalized for the second time in recent months.
More: Rob Kardashian's Sticking to His New Year's Resolution After Being Hospitalized
An insider close to the family told Hollywood Life that Kardashian's latest breakup with Blac Chyna could very well be the last — after months of being on and off, the source says they're done for good this time — and that Kardashian's health is suffering under all the stress from the split.
"Rob is not taking this well," the insider said. "The latest issues with Blac Chyna have totally derailed him."
The source continued, "He’s back to emotional eating, which is dangerous for his diabetes. His family’s so worried about him. He could end up in the hospital over this. They’re very scared for him. His health is a real issue."
Kardashian was first diagnosed with diabetes in December 2015, though he later claimed that Chyna had cured him of the disease.
"Chyna and I had a really big talk and she told me that by having her cook for me, my diabetes would be gone," he told People magazine last year. "And it is."
More: Rob Kardashian & Blac Chyna's Split Wasn't Forever, but No One's Really Surprised
But Kardashian was hospitalized just before the New Year because of complications related to his diabetes. That health scare also happened during a time that he and Chyna were on the rocks. It was right after screen shots from Chyna's phone were released online, showing her talking about using Kardashian for his fame and calling him "fat" and "lazy." Soon after that, Kardashian posted a bizarre Snapchat story showing that Chyna had suddenly moved out of their home and taken all the furniture with her. They got back together within a few weeks only to split again this month.
There's definitely a pattern here, and it's that the stress of his frequent breakups with Chyna seem to have an ill effect on Kardashian's health. Maybe she's doing the opposite of curing his diabetes. Just a thought.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: The rumors surrounding Tarek and Christina El Moussa's divorce aren't quite believable. There's plenty of evidence of this, like how they broke up six months before they made any public announcement about their split and no one caught on. Meanwhile, the rumors are still flying about how hostile they are to each other, particularly on the set of Flip or Flop, where they're allegedly being forced to continue to film together.

Just LOVE them," he wrote alongside the photo of him holding his 6-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son, followed by a string of heart emojis.
Everyone in the pic looks happy and not at all traumatized, so either everyone decided to tone down their hostility on bring-the-kids-to-work day or there just isn't rampant hate abounding on the set of Flip or Flop like anonymous sources keep saying and the El Moussas keep denying.
By all means, though, let's all believe the tabloid stories over the actual humans involved in the "hostile" divorce — they're probably much more reliable.

Despite the critical shellacking Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe has taken, fans are still hoping that the upcoming entries in the series will deliver on all of the hype and excitement surrounding these iconic characters. Wonder Woman is set to hit theaters this summer, but all of WB’s eggs are really in the Justice League basket. With Part I of a planned two-part series (you know, if WB doesn’t scrap the whole thing for being terrible) set to hit theaters in November, fans have been wondering where the first official trailer is.
Well, it looks like fans won’t have to wait too much longer. Director Zack Snyder confirmed via his Vero account that the first Justice League trailer will be out “soon.”
The Lord has spoken. The prophecy has been said. pic.twitter.com/1FS3iqrY62

Snyder has long been a fan of using social media to update fans. Just last week he shared footage from the editing room that featured Batman going to town on some bad guys. Will that be enough to hold hungry fans over until the trailer drops? Probably not. So in the meantime, here’s the teaser for Justice League.
And here’s the movie’s official plot synopsis:
“Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes – Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash – it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”

Tori Spelling is currently pregnant with her and Dean McDermott’s fifth child. Tori loves free shit and she loves to waste her mom’s money, so Candy Spelling threw her a huge, expensive baby shower on February 11th at the Bel Air Hotel. A source tells The Daily Mail that Candy dropped $40,000 on the baby shower, money that probably would have been better spent paying off one of Tori and The Deaner’s many debts. Or paying off Dean’s ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace.
Sources tell Page Six that Mary Jo was “livid” after she learned about the $40,000 baby shower. So livid she needed to zen-out in nature days after it happened, apparently.
Much needed calming walk.
A post shared by Mary Josephine Eustace (@maryjoeustace) on Feb 13, 2017 at 4:23pm PST
Letting his mother-in-law throw a $40,000 baby shower might not have been the smoothest move; Dean reportedly owes Mary Jo thousands of dollars in unpaid child support for their 18-year-old son Jack. Mary Jo is taking The Deaner to court in Los Angeles next month.
Candy Spelling just spent $40,000 on Tori and The Deaner, and so I’m sure he’s going to hit her up for his latest child-related hand out. I bet he’s writing the email right now.
“Yo, whats’s up Candy Cane? Listen, The Deaner needs a financial favor from his favorite sugar grandmama. Turns out Daddy’s been a little greasy in the child support department. I figured since you’re already footing the bill for my other ones, you might help me out with the first one I made. If only The Deaner could get paid for making kids, amiright? PS – throw in a couple extra bucks for me? Taco Bell has this new fried chicken chalupa that I just can’t get enough of!”

It’s no secret that the presidential salary won’t elevate the First Family into the top 1%. Perhaps that’s why the Obamas are coming out guns blazing in their post-White House careers. Barack and Michelle Obama have reportedly already signed contracts for book deals, guide offers, and paid speeches.
Take a guess on how much they’re charging per speaking engagement? If you answered $250,000 then congratulations, you might be psychic.Presidential Privilege
Despite an up-and-down eight years in the White House, President Obama left the Oval Office with an impressive approval rating of 60%. It’s no surprise that he’ll be coveted as a speaker and other public appearances and it appears as if he plans to cash in on that goodwill. Respect the hustle.
Apart from his lucrative post-White House opportunities, Obama will also start to receive his annual presidential pension, which is par the course for any former commanders in chief. The expected amount is said to be around $207,000 per year.
As of now, a date has not yet been set for book releases. However, the Obamas have recently hired attorneys Robert Barnett and Deneen Howell, who also worked with the Clintons and Mia Farrow, to negotiate their upcoming contracts, so the groundwork is being laid.Mo’ Money
According to Fox Business:
“No doubt [former President Obama’s] first speech could easily command $250,000 at minimum. Michelle will also see numbers around [250k per speech] for the first year as well. Those fees probably won’t drop anytime soon, when you stop and think about it, especially if Obama continues to be vocal, as he [has] said he would.”
In 2011, former president Bill Clinton earned roughly $13.4 million, giving 54 speeches, while Hillary reportedly earned $234,000 per speech from 2001 until she ran for president in the most recent election, according to CNN. Combined, the power couple reportedly earned $154 million in that timeframe. Excuse me while I reconsider my career choices.
The Obamas will surely be investigating their own book deals, which are quite lucrative. The former president already has three books under his belt (Dreams From My Father, The Audacity of Hope and Of Thee I Sing), which have earned him around $10 million.
Long story short: the Obamas are going to make it rain in “retirement.”

When you have naturally red hair, people seem to think it makes it OK for them to do certain really annoying things. Women constantly grab strands of your hair, hold them up to the light and exclaim about how people pay all of the money to get that hair color and so you should never, ever complain about anything in your life because you couldn't possibly have problems because you have naturally red hair. Men, particularly in places where alcohol is served and/or on the middle school basketball court, ask if the carpet matches the drapes.Image: Giphy
As a relatively well-adjusted adult, I find myself able to brush these things off as minor annoyances. But as an incredibly shy child, they pretty much ruined my life on the regular.
Enter Ariel from The Little Mermaid, who was a strong, independent woman and who had the voice of an angel and whose hair looked just like mine. Suffice it to say, Ariel was a pretty important figure in my childhood life. Normally, when it comes to casting movies, even if I don't agree with the actors who land the roles, I shrug and move on with life because there are more important things to worry about. But when it comes to Disney's live-action remake of The Little Mermaid, the idea of Lindsay Lohan in the title role simply will not stand.Image: Giphy

Lohan posted a side-by-side comparison of herself and Ariel to Instagram, presumably because she's pitching herself for the role.
A post shared by Lindsay Lohan (@lindsaylohan) on Feb 19, 2017 at 3:24am PST
Lohan definitely looks the part, which is great. If this were based on looks alone, she would nail it, and I would shut up and happily buy my tickets to see the movie. But there is one really, really big problem with the idea of Lohan playing Ariel. She can't sing Ariel's music. I know that saying that is going to irritate some Lohan fans out there because she did take a respectable stab at a music career. But Lohan simply doesn't have the right sound for the delicate soprano songs that Ariel sings. I don't want a pop-punk version of Ariel. I want the songs I used to dance around the kitchen singing as a little girl. I don't think Lohan can deliver that.
If there's one thing we've learned from the previews that have come out for Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast remake, it's that the music cannot be an afterthought to casting a famous face for the role. Emma Watson is an incredible actress, but her extremely heavily auto-tuned version of "Something There" is an irritating mess of a great song. Disney, don't make the same mistake twice.

They were both A-plus chief executives, but which U.S. President do you love more, Abraham Lincoln or George Washington? That's what we wanna know! View Poll »
Yes, we realize that Honest Abe and G-Dubs' duds haven't been popular with the mainstream in ages ... and ages and ages and ages.
By the same token, when you're a titan of history, you never go out of style. If you get your own national monument, well, 'nuff said.
The first President of the United States, George Washington led a rebellion over Great Britain, then oversaw the birth of a new nation.
Abraham Lincoln, four score and seven years later, valiantly preserved and paved the way for a more perfect union against long odds.
Sort of puts our own mundane lives in unworthy perspective all of a sudden, doesn't it? Maybe that says more about GW and AL than us.
We'll just go ahead and tell ourselves that. Anyway ...
Overcoming similarly huge obstacles, redefining what was possible and then fighting to preserve it, both patriots delivered for America.

I’ve long believed Nina Agdal may be the most underrated chick in the world, which is really saying something, considering she’s an internationally famous model.
But even as Victoria’s Secret and Sports Illustrated model who bangs none other than Leo Dicaprio, Nina is still criminally underrated. Think about it — do you ever hear her name mentioned with the Candace Swanepoel, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, or Irina Shayk? Never. Even Kate Upton’s overplayed, rotund ass get more love than Nina which is truly blasphemous.
Therefore, it is my DUTY TO THE PEOPLE to spread the word of this next-level hot video Nina posted to her Instagram.

Lisa Marie Presley‘s divorce is about to get even nastier.
After the star accused estranged husband Michael Lockwood of collecting “hundred of inappropriate photos” of children, the bitter musician claimed in legal documents last week to have his own dirt on the late Elvis‘ daughter.
And now, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal some of the damning details that could separate Presley, 49, from her young children forever.
“Michael took pictures of Lisa Marie when she was naked and out of it,” a family insider tells Radar.

During the last days of their marriage, “they both walked around the house naked a lot,” the source added. “They even skinny dipped with the kids around.”
Presley, who checked into a California treatment facility for an addiction to alcohol and drugs last summer, was “on pills and sleeping all the time” before her split from Lockwood, the source added.
As Radar readers know, Presley and Lockwood’s 8-year-old twins Finley and Harper are currently in state custody. (Presley’s mother Priscilla claims to be caring for the girls.)

For many of those who are old enough to remember a time when music was purchased in brick and mortar stores and MTV played videos, it's difficult to believe that it's been nearly 23 years since Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain took his own life.
Though only 27 at the time of his death, Cobain's influence on the music world was so profound that one seldom hears a conversation about the cultural climate of the '90s in which his name isn't mentioned.
Sadly, Cobain's daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, has few memories of her father, as she was four months shy of her second birthday when he died.
There's a tragic irony in the fact that the most potent living reminder of Cobain's inimitable style, droll humor, and artistic temperament doesn't remember the man herself, but Frances is clearly acutely aware of the ways in which she's been influenced by her iconic father.
Today would have been Cobain's 50th birthday.
The occasion has prompted outpourings of grief and nostalgia from family, friends, and fans, but perhaps no tribute is as moving as the one paid by Frances early this morning.
The 24-year-old posted the following image of a handwritten note to her Instagram page:
"Today would have been your 50th birthday. You are loved and you are missed," the message reads.
"Thank you for giving me the gift of life. Forever your daughter, Frances Bean Cobain."
In the past, Frances has spoken with surprising candor about her troubled father's short life and death.
"The world demanded it of him," Frances said of her father's suicide in an interview last year.
"I think that was one of the main triggers as to why he felt he didn't want to be here and everyone would be happier without him."
"In reality, if he had lived,...I would have had a dad. And that would have been an incredible experience."
Early in life, Frances faced challenges few young people encounter (she was estranged from her mother, Courtney Love), throughout much of her life, she seems to have developed into a surprisingly stable and grounded adult.
She's mended fences with Love, endured a high-profile divorce with dignity, and built a career for herself as a a visual artist.
Nothing can make up for the absence of a parent in a child's life, but we hope Frances finds some comfort in knowing how proud she would've made her father.
It appears as if Chris Zylka has spent at least one night in Paris.
Hilton, that is.
In a sexual manner of speaking.
The socialite-turned-DJ-turned-Donald-Trump-voter shared several PDA-filled Instagram photos with over the weekend of her and her new boyfriend.
There hadn't been any rumors prior to these pictures of Hilton and Zylka even knowing each other, but it's now pretty obvious that they do know each other... intimately.
“My #Valentine,” Hilton captioned the above photo of the couple dressed in some rather fancy clothes.
That pretty much says it all right there, doesn't it?
In a second photo from the same evening, Hilton looks beautiful in a maroon-patterned dress and diamond choker, while The Leftover actor dons a tuxedo and black tie.
“The best feeling is when someone looks at you like you are magic…” Hilton wrote of this snapshot.
Zylka is likely best known for his role in HBO's The Leftovers, as mentioned above.
But he also appeared on The Secret Circle, 90210 and in The Amazing Spider-Man.
He was born on May 9, 1985 in Warren, Ohio.
Prior to whatever occasion prompted Hilton and Zylka to dress to the nines for these images, the latter attended the entrepreneur’s star-studded birthday party in New York City last week.
He was joined there by Paris’ sister, Nicky Hilton Rothschild, Ashley Benson, Keyshia Cole and other celebrities.
Hilton posted an Instagram video from the night, in which her handsome new man presents her with a massive cake while the rest of the crowd sings “Happy Birthday.”
In another new Instagram picture, meanwhile, the ex-reality star is embrace from behind (not like that!) by Zylka, as the two holds hand and appear to be very much in love.
"Live. Love. Sparkle…" Paris wrote as a caption.
Zylka was previously engaged to model Hanna Beth, but they broke up in 2015. He also dated Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale.
Hilton has been with businessman Thomas Gross, Greek billionaire Stavros Niarchos, Backstreet Boy Nick Carter and Hills star Doug Reinhardt.
That's quite the eclectic dating resume, huh?
We wish this relatively new couple nothing but the best!
George Clooney was once one of Hollywood's hottest bachelors, who swore he would never get married again (he was married to actress Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993). That is, until Amal Alamuddin (now Amal Clooney) came along. George first laid eyes on the human rights attorney at his home in Lake Como, Italy in 2013. During a previous appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman, the 55-year-old actor revealed, "We met in Lake Como. She was a friend of a friend who came to visit and then I chased her for many months, calling and writing, those kinds of things." George also admitted to Ellen DeGeneres that "from the minute we met, we just sort of felt like we were going to be together."
He ended up proposing six months later, and even though he had it all planned out, it ended up being "one of those horrible moments," he told Ellen. "I plotted the whole thing out. I had the ring hidden behind her. I had music playing, my Aunt Rosemary's gonna sing 'Why Shouldn't I.' Everything was planned out . . . it was like 25 minutes. Finally I literally said, 'Look, I hope the answer's yes, but I need an answer 'cause I'm 52 and I could throw out my hip pretty soon.' And she said 'Oh, yes,' and it worked out really well."
Fast-forward a few months later and George and Amal are husband and wife. The couple tied the knot in Venice, Italy in September 2014 and are currently expecting twins (a boy and a girl)! Maybe fairy tales do exist.
