CELEB SPOTTING: Lady Gaga Taking In Snoop Dogg At SXSW

lady-gaga-sxsw-photo.jpg

Each year the festival manages to become even more extravagant so it’s no surprise that there have been more star-sightings this year than ever! Last night at the Jägermeister house was no exception. Jäger obviously knows how to throw a party and not only festival-goers flocked to see Snoop Dogg perform, but Lady Gaga herself! Who knew she was a Snoop fan girl? Upon arrival, she was spirited away to the VIP area but was seen enjoying #RespectTheWest tour, drinking Jägermeister, and chatting with a bartender before heading out 15 minutes later. At least her Jäger buzz would last all night!

Trouble In Halle Berry’s Second Marriage Already?

Fame And Philanthropy Post-Oscar Party

They just got married in July of 2013, but it seems that there may already be trouble in marital paradise for Halle Berry and her husband Olivier Martinez.

Reports are saying that as of late, the two actors have been living separate lives…yes, as in NOT together. Apparently, there is some speculation that there is quite a bit of tension in the relationship and they have drifted apart mostly because of their hectic work schedules. Berry is now shooting her new CBS series, “Extant,” in Los Angeles, while Martinez has been busy working on “Revenge” in a guest-star role that starts Sunday on the hit ABC show.

In recent months, we haven’t seen many paparazzi shots of these two together (and yeah, that could be a good thing) and rumor has it that Halle was NOT wearing her wedding ring at a post-Oscars party. Now granted, she maybe forgot to put it on or it was getting cleaned or something…but you have to wonder when Martinez wasn’t even present either.

Take this into consideration, they were last seen in public together on December 7th and they surely did not look thrilled.

I hope that this is just a rumor because even though Halle seems kind of like a dramatic, self-absorbed you-know-what, everyone deserves to be happy.

Tina Fey Sets Record Straight On “Mean Girls” Movie

Lindsay-Lohan-Tina-Fey-Main

“Extra” caught up with Tina Fey at the L.A. premiere of her new film, “Muppets Most Wanted,” where she set the record straight on rumors of a follow-up “Mean Girls” movie.

Fey, who wrote the original movie, said, “We’re coming up next month on the 10-year anniversary of the original movie… I can’t believe it either. We’re going to see if there’s any way to get everyone together, but not a movie, sadly. We’re all past high school age.”

In other words, they are NOT going to make Mean Girls happen and for me, that is totally okay. Lindsay probably thinks otherwise, but sometimes you just need to leave the classics alone!

Along with Fey, “Mean Girls” starred Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert and was directed by Mark Waters.

You’ll Never Guess Who Emma Watson Is Jealous Of!

emmawatson1

She survived the child-actor maelstrom and, instead of taking a quick trip to grown-up stardom, decided to spend a few years in development (at Brown, no less). Now Emma Watson, is back – smarter, stronger, and ready to prove herself. ELLE’s April issue hits national newsstands on March 25th.

Yay for a child star not taking the dangerous, nasty downward spiral!

emmawatson2

Check out the highlights of the interview below:

On the importance of having a life outside of her acting career:
“I remember reading this thing that Elizabeth Taylor wrote. She had her first kiss in character. On a movie set. It really struck me. I don’t know how or why, but I had this sense that if I wasn’t really careful, that could be me. That my first kiss could be in somebody else’s clothes. And my experiences could all belong to someone else.”

On coming of age in the public eye:
“There are all these actresses who have emerged in the last year or two, and they get to emerge as this complete human being. And I’m so jealous!”

On Noah, Darren Aronofsky’s $125 million dollar blockbuster, and what it was like playing Noah’s adopted daughter, Ila:
“It’s Shakesperean, what happens to this family when they’re put in this confined space for 40 days and 40 nights. It’s the end of the world – how these different human beings are dealing with the impact of that. Are humans good? Are we bad? All of these themes are epic.”

Darren Aronofsky on Emma’s steely nerve while filming Noah:
“We started off with one of Emma’s hardest scenes. We shot in Iceland on a beach with an extremely difficult weather situation. The force of the wind – we could barely hear the actors. The sun kept coming in and out. We had to wait for the right light, then, Go, go, go! Then, Wait, wait, wait! She was able to block out all those ridiculous external forces and just focus on the emotion at hand.”

Jason Biggs’ Wife Jenny Mollen for Cosmopolitan.com: On Labor, Delivery & the Moment She Fell In Love With Her Son

Actress Jenny Mollen (wife to Jason Biggs) writes for Cosmopolitan.com about her recent labor and delivery experience and it is pretty entertaining to read. Girlfriend has quite the take on parenthood. Check it out below via our friends at Cosmo.

Cosmopolitan.com: The Moment I Fell in Love With My Son

At 41 and a half weeks pregnant, I started to have second thoughts about becoming a mother.
“You know, I might not be ready for children,” I’d tell my husband in complete earnestness as if the subject were still up for debate.

I understood that there was someone just underneath the surface of my skin waiting to explode into the world like the most rewarding zit of all time, but I wasn’t completely connected to him. I didn’t know how I could love something more than my dogs. Or how I could housebreak something not motivated by bacon strips.  I was never the girl who yearned for children. I pretended to be interested in other people’s kids, but that was obviously just an act.

“Aw! Cute baby!” I’d usually say, when what I felt like saying was, “Cute baby. It looks like all other babies I’ve ever seen ever. Now show me a picture of your dog in a top hat!”

The truth was, children scared me. I knew that no matter what I did as a parent, I was bound to do some things wrong. I didn’t want to bring a person into the world just to fuck them up and have them send me to voicemail for all of eternity. My dogs would NEVER do that!

I was due on February 4. On February 14 I was still pregnant and starting to believe I’d just stay pregnant forever.
“This is just my new body. It’s just what I look like now,” I explained to my husband as I tried to roll over and give him a super hot Valentine’s peck on the lips before bed.  Seconds later, my water broke. When I told my husband, he leapt up and searched the sheets for proof.  “Are you sure? Shouldn’t we be drenched?”  Like “You Can’t Do That on Television,” I think he expected a giant bucket of slime to drop from the ceiling and cover us.  “Maybe you just peed,” he offered.  “I would know if I just peed, and I didn’t. You need to call Howie!” I ran to the bathroom and stripped off my clothes to make sure I couldn’t see a head sticking out.

Jason called our doctor as I sat on the toilet regretting using all my pregnancy books as nightstand coasters. I guess I should have prepared myself better, but those books made me feel like I was studying for the SAT. I just figured I’d walk into the hospital, pick D (all of the above), and a baby would appear.

When Howie told me to go back to bed and try to sleep, I was skeptical. But I assumed that fact that he was an OB/GYN meant he probably did read all the books on my nightstand, and in the event of a forthcoming written exam, he would be the guy I’d need to cheat off of later that day.

Around 3:30 a.m., Jason and I drove to the hospital. My cramps were bad but in no way severe. I, of course, pretended I was miserable so as to give myself an excuse if I suddenly felt like screaming or beating him uncontrollably. The streets were empty save for a couple police cars I hoped might try to pull us over. It was the one time in my life I wanted to be confronted by a cop just so I could say, “Sorry, officer, but we don’t have time for your bullshit! WE’RE HAVING A BABY!!!!!” then hit the gas and peel out.  Once at the hospital, I was fingered by roughly three nurses then put on Pitocin to help induce labor. Howie and my doula, Ana Paula, arrived shortly thereafter.

I wasn’t opposed to drugs, except when I was watching that Ricki Lake documentary three months earlier, feeling safe and pain-free in the privacy of my own home. Now, with what felt like a thousand teeth clenching down on my uterus, drugs seemed like a great option. I knew Jason and Howie didn’t give a shit whether I delivered naturally, but Ana Paula seemed more holistic. I needed to make sure she would still love me, respect me, and favor me forever over the friend who’d referred her to me before I could let her hear me ask to be knocked unconscious. The drugs would have to wait.

I wandered the halls of the Labor and Delivery ward for five hours, riding the vicissitudes of the most incomprehensible pain of my life, when finally, my ego was beat into submission and I asked for “the works.”

An anesthesiologist who looked young enough to not know who Madonna was walked in and administered an epidural. From that point forward, everything was a blur. Howie, Jason, Ana Paula, and my nurse Abby sat with me for over seven hours waiting for my cervix to dilate. It never did. Jason claims I pooped myself twice. The baby’s heart rate dropped, and my vagina kept refusing to cooperate. Eventually, a C-section was our only option.

As I was wheeled into the operating room, my anxiety started to mount. Howie told me I’d be meeting my son in less than 20 minutes. All the choices I’d made with my life — the weird boyfriends, the bad haircuts, the questionable workout mix tapes — came flooding back to me. Would this little creature like me? Would he approve of me? Would he ever find a picture of me from middle school with super thin eyebrows? I worried that I hadn’t done enough with my life, that I wasn’t equipped to be the kind of mother he needed, and that I wasn’t young enough to be someone his friends would ever consider hot.

Several nurses rolled me from my hospital bed on to the operating table. A thin screen of paper was placed just below my neck, and Jason, now decked out in surgical scrubs, appeared next to me. Once the IV drip took hold, everything below my ribs went numb. I told Howie to let me know before he started cutting.  “We’ve already started,” he said calmly.

I tried to stay focused and not picture all the balloon animals he might be making out of my intestines.
“OK, you are going to feel a lot of pressure,” he instructed.

Before I could get super cocky about not even flinching during the aforementioned pressure, I heard a baby cry.
My narcotized eyes looked up and saw Howie’s hands holding what looked like a bloody version of Caesar from Little Caesar’s Pizza. He had a pronounced nose, chubby cheeks, and a dark black toupee on his head. I think I even heard him say, “pizza pizza” as he was whisked away for his bath.

A few minutes later, a nurse walked back over and placed my newborn son on my chest. He seemed a little pissed off. Like maybe the caesarian was interfering with whatever in utero plans he’d made for the evening. I cradled him in my arms the way I’d seen people hold babies in movies and tried to console him.  My heart heaved with emotion as I looked into his dark blue eyes. I wanted to laugh, sob, and throw up all over myself. I’d burst through the ceiling of whatever kind of love I’d felt in my life and was traveling upward into a stratosphere reserved for heroin junkies and people who write romantic greeting cards. I didn’t recognize myself. I was instantly and completely transformed.

In that moment I knew I’d never be the person I was before, because now, I didn’t seem to matter that much.
I was no longer concerned with accumulating the most Twitter followers or scoring the best parking spot at Whole Foods. Dogs in top hats? Fuck them.

Yes, I’d make mistakes, and yes, one day he’d probably forward me to voicemail while breastfeeding some chick who isn’t me in the backseat of his dad’s midlife-crisis convertible. But it was all part of the journey — a journey I was finally happy to take.

I wasn’t ready for kids. I was just ready for him.

How adorable! One day her little man will read this and smile. Congratulations to Jason Biggs and his wife Jenny Mollen on their little bundle. Parenting is never as you expect it to be until you experience it for yourself!

Mollen will appear on HBO’s Girls on March 16th and 23rd.

Lindsay Lohan Talks New BFF…Oprah

lindsay-lohan-scary-movie_1

Via Extra TV:

Only “Extra’s” AJ Calloway was with Lindsay Lohan right after her appearance on “The Tonight Show” starring Jimmy Fallon. Lindsay saying, “It’s just really good energy…We played a game called water wars …I only got one hit though which was really good.” Lindsay saying Jimmy got soaked, “I got him good, I didn’t realize the gun was gonna shoot so high, hit him in the face.”

Lindsay’s next TV appearance, Sunday night when her docu-series airs on OWN, “I did it because it’s not a reality show, it’s pretty raw…Obviously it’s TV so things will be edited in certain ways to what will get ratings, which I can’t control, but I do know that my intentions going into it were really pure and really honest and real and I really appreciate all that’s happened and all that she’s done for me.”

Lohan continued, “I love that I can call Oprah on the phone, and be like Oprah can we talk right now and she calls me within two minutes and I have to trick her into leaving voice mails so I can just have Oprah’s voicemails…She’s the coolest person ever.”

Lindsay getting emotional when AJ shares with her that he told Oprah she had decided not to go on a trip to Europe at the premiere of Lee Daniels “The Butler.” AJ, “You were supposed to go away and you didn’t go away…I’m the one that said it to her on the carpet.” Lindsay, “She told me about that.” AJ, “She almost started crying on the carpet, she was so emotional about that, she was like, I’m so happy.” Lindsay wiping away her own tears, “She’s amazing, she is…She’s been a blessing to me, she’s great and I couldn’t be happier or more grateful.”

Lindsay saying overall she feels really good and she just wants to keep working. “My grandmother’s dream is gonna come true, I’m taking her on The Chew, so things are looking up….Life is really good.”

Well hopefully she has her head on straight and that the dolla dolla bills that Oprah is dangling right in front of her keeps her running well ahead of the drugs and bad influences. She has all the odds stacked against her, but the right person on her side!

Lindsay just say…

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez Hit The Dance Studio And Dance Seductively TOGETHER! (VIDEO)

justin

Well apparently Justin Bieber’s attempts at wooing Selena Gomez back into his life and heart may be working as Selena seems to be falling for Justin’s most recent efforts.

He made a post via Instagram the other day with a photo of Selena with the following caption “most elegant princess”. Sweet, right? Eh, not so much. But…

Rumor has it that Bieber sent Selena over $10,000 worth of flowers and that may have done it for her as she agreed to meeting up with Justin for breakfast AND a dance studio.

Justin posted the following two videos to Instagram of him and Selena dancing seductively to John Legend’s “Ordinary People.” Even though Justin soon deleted the videos after posting them, you all know that whatever you post on the Internet does NOT DIE! The videos live on through…YouTube, y’all! And we have them here for you to drool over, gag over or use as dart practice.

Check out the Biebs and Selena getting their groove on in the studio together below!

What they did after this? I can pretty much guess. They probably went out for Starbucks again. Ahem.

Lily Allen Set To Release Sheezus!

lilyallen

She’s baaaaack!

Lily Allen will release her third studio album, entitled Sheezus, on May 6th on Warner Bros. Records. An album pre-order launches today.

Sheezus is the British pop singer’s first album since 2009′s acclaimed It’s Not Me, It’s You. The album finds her re-teaming with her long-time collaborator Greg Kurstin (Tegan & Sara, P!nk), except for on the title track, which was produced by DJ Dahi, and “Air Balloon,” which was produced by Shellback.

Critics have already weighed in on “Hard Out Here,” with Esquire exclaiming: “Job done, then: back with a bang,” and NME noting that she is “striding back in after four years out of the game.” Entertainment Weekly called the track “a booming critique of pop’s double standard” and “a lot of fun.”

At the end of 2013, Lily released two songs simultaneously – her cover of Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know,” which reached No. 1 in the U.K. and the download-only track “Hard Out Here,” which charted in the British Top 10 that same week.

Since emerging in 2006 with her iconic debut single “Smile,” Lily Allen has gone on to sell over five million albums worldwide. Her huge success in the U.K. not only quickly spread around the world but also helped shift the musical axis toward young female artists.

Her talent as a songwriter was acknowledged in 2010 when she won three Ivor Novello Awards. That same year she announced she was taking a break from making and performing music. In 2013 Lily returned to the studio, having spent the previous three years raising her young family and establishing her own record label.

The track-listing for Sheezus is as follows:

Sheezus
L8 CMMR
Air Balloon
Our Time
Insincerely Yours
Take My Place
As Long As I Got You

Silver Spoon
Life For Me

Anyone else excited for Lily Allen’s Sheezus?

Real Housewives of Atlanta Star, Kandi Burruss, Gets Candid with JET

kandi

Reality star, singer, songwriter, producer and entrepreneur, Kandi Burruss, appears radiant on the cover of JET magazine as she opens up about her career and her very public relationship with her mother, “Mama Joyce,” and fiancé, Todd Tucker.

“When I speak about anything on camera I want to accomplish it before we finish taping,” Burruss tells JET regarding her drive and ambition. “I am a ‘do what I say’ person. I want people to know I’m not a [phony]. I hate when people on reality shows mention how they want to do this and that, but you never hear of it again,” she added.

With a successful adult toy line, Bedroom Kandi, her Atlanta-based studio, The Kandi Factory, and her musical, A Mother’s Love, set for DVD release in April, Burruss certainly has proven that she has a keen sense for business. She admits her relationship with Tucker has helped her sharpen her skills.

“I love that Todd is affectionate and relationship-oriented,” said Burruss. “But he’s also a leader and a planner, and because of his production background he makes me a better businesswoman.”

Although many know that Burruss’ mother, Joyce Jones, is firmly against the union of her daughter with Tucker, she concedes exclusively to JET that “If they are married and it lasts, I will be the first to apologize.”
“When my mother was younger it was all about getting a man to be a provider,” said Burruss addressing her mother’s qualms. “She leans toward a man who is financially more well-off than the dude who is just a good guy.” She added, “I’ve dated guys who are more successful than me, and my mom is like, no matter what he does wrong, you have to work it out.”

Readers can read the articles in its entirety and more in the March 31st issue of JET magazine, on newsstands now.

Mindy Kaling Celebrates Season Two Of The Mindy Project!

mindykaling

To celebrate the second season of The Mindy Project, Mindy Kaling thanked her cast and crew at a private wrap party in LA on March 1st. Fellow writers, cast mates, and crew toasted to another season of hard work, big laughs, and shockingly attractive male guest stars with the recently released Johnnie Walker Platinum Label. Always the most charming hostess, Mindy raised a glass (okay, two glasses, it was a party) as she made a special toast thanking everyone for a season full of laughter.

After the official last day of filming of the season, the whisky aficionado showed both her cast and her team of writers just how much she cares with a special gift of rare whisky, Johnnie Walker Blue Label. To the cast she engraved the bottle with the message “Great year! Rest up. xoxo, Mindy ” and for her team of writers “Great year. Get back to work. xo, Mindy.”

Congrats to Mindy on the renewal of her show!

Beyonce Shares Photos Of Recent Jamaican Vacation And Blue Ivy

We all know how hard Beyonce and Jay-Z work, but you know what? They certainly play harder! It seems to be the family motto.

While out on the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, Bey has taken some time off to enjoy the green land of Jamaica and she shared some photos of her and her family enjoying the beach life and the sun.

Yes, Blue Ivy is getting bigger and keeps on looking more like her daddy every single day.

Yes, Jay-Z is still sporting his bootleg Tom Ford jersey.

And yes, Blue Ivy is still being treated as if every day is her birthday.

Oh to be Blue Ivy…not a care in the world. She has no idea what kind of world she’s gotten into.

Bey will soon be heading back to work as her world tour is set to make stops in Germany, Holland and Spain.

Ke$ha Is No Longer Ke$ha!

kesha

Kesha is out of rehab and is no longer all about the money…or at least not when it comes to her name. Kesha has dropped the $ from her moniker. But there is reason behind the madness!

TMZ is reporting that Kesha wants a fresh start after her 60 days in rehab to treat her eating disorder and that now her Ke$ha moniker is no longer appropriate for the woman she wants to be.

So from here on out, we need to refer to the pop star as Kesha. No money sign. Just Kesha.

The good news is that Kesha is said to be spending a lot of time with a therapist who will continue what she calls a work in progress AND she is also following the advice she got in rehab. That advice? To get rid of the negative people in her life who contributed to the problems in her life that led to the eating disorder. And she should! Everyone deserves to be happy and it looks as if Kesha is feeling better on the outside. Hopefully she feels the same way on the inside.

We got your back, girl! Keep on keeping on!
