CELEB SPOTTING: Shakira Hangs Out with Boyfriend Gerard Pique and Son Milan

What a beautiful family! Pop star Shakira and her soccer star boyfriend Gerard Pique shared a great family pic with their 18-month-old son Milan as they hung out in the country on a ranch!

“Countryside!”  Gerard, 27, captioned the photo on Instagram. The little family looked happy smiling as Gerard held Milan and wrapped his arm around Shakira. Milan himself was rocking a nice plaid shirt and jeans (definitely ranch appropriate!). Gerard shared another photo of the family riding on a funicular (fancy word for a tram-like vehicle) throughout an unknown city.

Though they sure are happy with Milan, Shakira herself told Latina magazine in April, that she definitely wants more kids…a LOT of them! “I would love to have eight or nine kids with Gerard,” she said. “My own futbol team.” Geez! All power to her.

Rachel McAdams Talks Working with Lindsay Lohan and Phillip Seymour Hoffman in ALLURE

Rachel McAdams shined on the cover of ALLURE’s August issue, shedding her makeup and going au naturel! In her interview, the actress opened up on her thoughts about love (especially after her breakup with Ryan Gosling), as well as working with Lindsay Lohan and the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman.

“If anything, I was in awe of her talent. I looked at her as this experienced actor, and she had great comedic timing, so natural,” Rachel said of her experience with Lindsay on the set of Mean Girls. Lindsay herself reportedly found that Rachel was intimidating, to which Rachel responded, “It’s just funny to hear that because you never know what people are thinking. We all try to act like we’ve got it together.”

The actress is set to appear next in the upcoming flick, A Most Wanted Man, which also stars Phillip Seymour Hoffman. “”I learned so much from him,” she said of working with the late actor.” He really takes you under — he really took me under his wing. You feel very taken care of, but at the same time there’s an element of danger: There’s a crackle in every scene,” she continued. “He makes sure the stakes are very high, and there’s a safety there, too. He had so much natural, raw talent, but he worked so hard, too. He really worked for it and didn’t let up. I’m sure that wasn’t easy.”

You can check out more of the spread and interview here! And, of course, be sure to pick of a copy Rachel’s issue when it hits newsstands July 29!

Kanye West Talks Wedding & Love for Kim Kardashian in GQ

Kanye West recently snagged the cover of the most recent issue of GQ, and was open as always about his recent wedding to Kim Kardashian, clearing up rumors that he gave himself a 45-minute toast, and speaking out on Jay Z and Beyoncé not showing up. Check out some of the highlights from the interview below!

If he feels like TMZ is trying to “de-fang” him when they mock him:
“I don’t have fangs. I’m a porcupine. I’m a blowfish. Like, I’m a — what’s the fish that blows up? Yeah. I’m a blowfish. I’m not a shark, I’m a blowfish. So that perfect example about me hitting my head, it’s like a blowfish. I wasn’t coming out of my house going to a paparazzi’s house to attack them. I’m defending my family in front of my own house. I’m defending my name as someone’s screaming something negative at me. That’s a blowfish. People have me pinned as a shark or a predator in some way, and in no way am I that. I wouldn’t want to hurt anyone. I want to defend people. I want to help people.”

On rumors he gave a 45-minute toast to himself:
“And what I talked about in it was the idea of celebrity, and celebrities being treated like blacks were in the ’60s, having no rights, and the fact that people can slander your name. I said that in the toast. And I had to say this in a position where I, from the art world, am marrying Kim. And how we’re going to fight to raise the respect level for celebrities so that my daughter can live a more normal life. She didn’t choose to be a celebrity. But she is. So I’m going to fight to make sure she has a better life.”

On Jay Z and Beyonce not attending his wedding:
“All that, I wouldn’t even speak on. It doesn’t even matter to me whatsoever, who would show up. Because the most important person to show up there, to me, was Kim. And that’s all that matters to me.”

On who is responsible for his wedding photo garnering more likes than any other photo in Instagram’s history:
“It’s because of Kim. Meaning there’s no photo that I would have put up by myself, or next to one of my smarty friends, that would have got that amount of likes … Now the thing that is the most popular is also communicating the highest level of creativity. The concept of Kimye has more cultural significance than what Page Six could write.”

On why he married Kim:
“Like they said in ‘Step Brothers’: Never lose your dinosaur. This is the ultimate example of a person never losing his dinosaur. Meaning that even as I grew in cultural awareness and respect and was put higher in the class system in some way for being this musician, I never lost my dinosaur. Kim is this girl who f**king turns me on. I love her. This is who I want to be next to and be around … You mean to tell me that this girl with this f**king body and this face is also into style, and she’s a nice person, and she has her own money and is family-oriented? That’s just as cool as a f**king fighter jet or dinosaur! And just as rarely seen.”

Kanye clearly loves him some Kim K! Read the full story here!

Former Destiny’s Child Member Farrah Franklin Arrested for Disorderly Conduct

Songbird turned jailbird! Farrah Franklin, best known for her very short stint alongside Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams in Destiny’s Child, was arrested for disorderly conduct on Sunday, July 20 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, according to TMZ.

NFL players Da’Quan Bowers and Ricky Sapp went out with Farrah on the beach on Saturday night, and apparently, when they got back to Ricky’s house, Farrah was reportedly wasted and got very crazy! The men eventually called police due to her antics, saying that they thought the former singer might be involved with drugs since she would go to the bathroom for long periods of time. Farrah was found lying down in the front yard of a neighbor, claiming she was going to sleep in the woods. It was reported that police described her as “highly intoxicated,” but said she denied using drugs.

Farrah appeared in Destiny’s Child for five months back in 2000. She, along with Michelle, replaced LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson, but was fired from the group shortly after. Of course, DC continued on as a trio before disbanding in 2006.

“We have to say that Farrah was not kicked out of Destiny’s Child,” Beyonce said on Total Request Live at the time. “She actually did not show up for three major promotional events, one of which was ‘MTV All Access.’ She walked out on [that], and the KUBE Summer Jam was another one in Seattle. You’ll all see that on the ['All Access'] show. We also had a five-day promotional tour in Australia, which was our first visit there and very important, and she didn’t come. So we all agreed that Farrah and Destiny’s Child should part ways, and we wish her the best in the future. But it wasn’t a management decision, it was a group decision.”

Sad to see Farrah in such disarray! I’m not sure what she’s up to now, but hopefully she gets herself back on track soon.

CELEB SPOTTING: Napoleon Dynamite Cast Reunites!

Flashback to 2004! Members of the cast of  cult comedy Napoleon Dynamite were spotted for a mini reunion!

Jon Heder, who played the main character, posed with Tina Majorino, who played Deb, Haylie Duff, who played Summer Wheatly, and Efren Ramirez, who played Pedro in a photo, reunited this week in celebration of the hit film’s 10th anniversary. Hill+Knowlton Strategies senior account executive Stephanie Kahan, who was also in the picture, posted the pic via Twitter saying, “Celebrating 10 sweet years of #napoleondynamite.”

The cast was also promoting the release of the anniversary Blu-Ray/DVD combination pack Napoleon Dynamite: 10 Sweet Years… of Liger Magic, Tots & Great Skills. They will also get together again next month to make an appearance at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery on August 7 for a screening of the movie for the opening of the Sundance Next Fest. The appearance is definitely fitting as Napoleon Dynamite first premiered at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival, eventually bringing in $44.5 million at the domestic box office, after working with a small budget of just $400,000!

Good to see some of the main characters together!

SiriusXM announced the show, “Dirty, Sexy, Funny with Jenny McCarthy,” which will have a limited today.

Zoe Saldaña Talks Relationships and Dream Roles in Marie Claire

Zoe Saldaña stunned on the cover of the August issue of Marie Claire, which is set to hit newsstands on July 22. In her feature interview, the Guardians of the Galaxy star opened up about her family, her husband, her thoughts on love and relationships, and her dream roles for her career.

Check out some of the highlights below!

On her relationship with husband Marco Perego: “I don’t do the ABCs. I do what my heart says, what my heart feels. So from the moment I met my husband, we were together. We knew.”

On the biggest thing she’s learned about relationships: “Not to settle. If you’re not happy with a person, leave. And wait until you find that one person who makes you feel good about yourself every single day and is not expecting you to change, but to grow.”

On disrespect: “I have been in relationships where a man has disrespected me, and I don’t need to be friends with that man anymore. I don’t want to be the one going, ‘I’m cool, because I’m friends with all my exes.’ There’s a reason why you’re called an ex. I crossed you off my list. Moving on. You cross a line, you need to know that you’re going to walk this earth knowing that there’s an individual who has no respect for you.”

On dream roles: “I would love to play Nefertiti or Cleopatra or the Queen of Sheba. We preserve more male history than we do female. We have to preserve it. No more complaining. We have to do it.”

On growing up in Dominican Republic: “I had many female bullies growing up who wanted us to be submissive and to follow and to kiss ass, and that’s the last thing any Saldana will ever do, honestly.”

Needless to say, from this short tidbit, readers can see that Zoe is definitely not the one to play with! She offered some wise advice in terms of relationships, as well. She’s not only a talented actress, but a strong person, who will speak her mind as she feels. Kudos to her for snagging this cover!

Jenni ‘JWOWW’ Farley Gives Birth to a Baby Girl

Make room for another guidette! Jersey Shore alum Jenni “JWOWW” Farley and her fiance Roger Mathews welcomed their first child, a girl, into the world on Sunday, July 13!

“Jenni and Roger are so excited to welcome the newest guidette Meilani Alexandra Mathews to the world weighing 7 lbs., 13 oz.,” Jenni’s rep told MTV News. “Meilani and her parents are doing great and are happy and healthy. Meilani is already looking to trade her baby bottle for barbells.”

MTV also congratulated the couple, saying in a statement: “We’re fist pumping in celebration of Jenni “JWOWW” Farley and Roger Mathews’ new baby girl Meilani Alexandra Mathews. We’re so excited for the new parents and to welcome the newest member to the MTV family.”

Roger announced to his Twitter followers that his baby girl had finally arrived, saying,

The new parents announced that they were expecting a baby last Christmas, revealing shortly after that they were having a girl. And even though Jenni didn’t have the best pregnancy (she called it “the worst thing ever“), the reality star had her best friend Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, also of Jersey Shore fame and her co-star on Snooki & JWOWW, along for the ride. “She’s always been by my side, and then to find out that she’s pregnant, this made me feel a thousand times better, ’cause I get to experience this with her,” Jenni said in a previous interview with MTV News. Snooki herself is expecting another baby, a girl as well, with her fiance Jionni LaValle.

I am in love the baby’s name! Sounds beautiful and elegant, almost like she’s royalty. Princess of the guidettes I guess! Anyway, congrats to Jenni, Roger, and their families!

“I love that the final ad images are unretouched,” the actress said in a press release. “It’s so important for girls to remember that real beauty shines from within and I’m so proud that Bongo is choosing to send such a positive message with this campaign.” The brand, which caters to junior sizes, tries to uplift girls and inspire them to feel confident no matter what size they are.

Vanessa is definitely looking amazing in these pics!

RHOA’s Apollo Nida Sentenced to Eight Years in Prison for Theft and Fraud

Sentencing day went down today for the Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Apollo Nida, and the odds did not come out in his favor.

Apollo was arrested earlier in the year for identity theft and bank fraud, faking companies and taking people’s money and falsely cashing checks, which cost these folks a total of $2 million! Well today, the federal court put down the law, and sentenced Apollo to eight years in prison for his scheme, which occurred from 2009-2013, literally the entire time he’s been on the show!

Apollo admitted to his actions back in May, saying that he only did it to keep up with wife Phaedra Parks‘own income and lifestyle that was seen on the show. “I got sucked in and engulfed and lost sight of things,” he said. Phaedra was not present during the hearing.

This isn’t Apollo’s first time behind bars. He spent six years in jail, from around 2003 to 2009, for being a part of a car-theft operation. Shame he didn’t learn his lesson the first time!

I’m honestly not surprised that Phaedra wasn’t in court. And I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if she divorced him. EIGHT YEARS?! There’s a possibility of him getting out early for good behavior, but he’s going to be away from his family for a long time. Seems to me like this was merely a pride thing. He was intimidated by Phaedra and how much she makes, that, instead of finding an honest, legitimate way to make money and provide for his family, he does this. Might seem harsh, but I think it’s selfish, and I don’t feel sorry for him. I feel sorry for Phaedra and their two sons, who are toddler age, and have to deal with their father being away.

All the Details Behind Jessica Simpson’s Fairytale Wedding!

Jessica Simpson finally tied the knot over the Fourth of July weekend, and PEOPLE had all the details behind the fabulous, yet emotional event!

Jessica and now-husband Eric Johnson are on the cover of the July 21st issue of PEOPLE and spilled about their July 5th nuptials, which was held at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Calif., with 275 guests in attendance. On the cover, Jessica looks gorgeous posing in her Carolina Herrera wedding gown in Eric’s arms, flashing her beautiful wedding ring. The issue also features exclusive pictures of the wedding, reception, and behind the scenes, including a cute photograph of Jessica holding her kids, daughter Maxwell, and son Ace.

Jessica had 12 bridesmaids (yikes!), and had her mother Tina and sister Ashlee, as maids of honor. Eric’s father, Stephen served as his best man, and Ashlee’s fiance, Evan Ross, was one of the groomsmen. Jessica’s father, Joe, officiated the ceremony, which was nondenominational.

Of course, the couple’s kids were the official flower girl and ring bearer (too cute!). “Before I walked out, I kept hearing all the applause,” Jessica said, “so my kids got standing ovations!” When Jessica did make her way down the aisle, Eric became emotional. “I saw my gorgeous wife coming towards me and she was crying,” he said in the interview. “I think my heart was exploding a little bit.” Jessica herself was caught up in the moment too. “It’s so surreal,” she says. “This has been something we’ve wanted ever since we met.”

The entire wedding ceremony cost a good $1.4 million. The price to pay for a beautiful wedding for a beautiful couple! Congrats to Jessica and Eric! Best wishes to you and your families!

Bobbi Kristina Slams Angela Bassett Over Whitney Houston Biopic

Lifetime is filming the upcoming biopic about Whitney Houston, but her daughter Bobbi Kristina is NOT feeling it! Whitney’s daughter tweeted her anger about the project, slamming Angela Bassett, who will serve as director, in the process!

Angela gave an interview recently about the film to Entertainment Weekly, discussing why she didn’t cast Bobbi in the role. “I did not think about casting her. And probably for a number of reasons, you know. One being that she’s not an actress. I know she’s acted here and there. I know she’s been on their family’s reality show, but she’s not an actress and acting is a craft,” she explained. “It’s an attempt to illuminate the complexities of human behavior and life. And this is a very fast-paced schedule; we have just 21 days to tell this story. It’s more than just saying lines and turning the light on. You have to drive the story—there’s a technical aspect.”

Well, of course, Bobbi didn’t take that lying down! The 21-year-old tweeted, “Ha MsAng “bassketcase” has such a damn nerve my lord, at least the world doesn’t mistake me for the wrong sex…she has some #XtraEquipment.” She alos added, “When I win my first Grammy or Oscar, *Shrugs* hmm whichever comes 1st, I’ll be sure 2shout URname out b-tch! Hah UrTestResults = Male. Lmao.”

It was announced earlier in the month thatformer America’s Next Top Model contestant Yaya DeCosta would play Whitney. Unlike Bobbi, Yaya has real acting experience, working as a child actor, and also appearing on All My Children as well as Ugly Betty. The model has also been in hit films such as Lee Daniels’ The Butler and Tron: Legacy.

Bobbi Kristina is coming off really, REALLY bitter. Yes, I understand that your mother wanted you to play her, but baby girl, you have relatively NO acting experience! I’ve seen you in a few episodes of Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married, and that’s it. That small little role hardly warrants you starring in a movie, even if it is in the role of your mother. If you’re really serious about acting, take some classes, build up your experience, and maybe you can make it. I’m mad she tried going in on Angela Bassett like that!

Did your favorite celeb take home any awards? 

Zoe Saldana Talks Controversial Nina Simone Role in Monarch Magazine

Zoe Saldana recently snagged the cover of Monarch magazine, looking gorgeous! The actress, who landed the role of the late jazz artist Nina Simone, talked to the mag about the controversy behind her getting the role, how she feels about always having to define, and, in a sense, defending her race and culture, and how she prepared for it.

Check out the highlights of the interview below!

Playing the late, great Nina Simone, what inspired you to do a project like this? 
Nina was a true genius and an iconic artist. It was a dream job for me. It’s one of the scariest projects I’ve ever been involved with because it was about an iconic figure, and there were so many political [issues] around it from the beginning; but I really wanted it to be a love song to Nina Simone and I wanted it to just come from a place of absolute love. I loved the complexity of Nina and her beauty that she expressed with her music. I wanted to do right by her and knew it would be challenging. I feel so blessed to have such an amazing opportunity to play a true legend.

How did you prepare for the role?
I did a lot of research to prepare for Nina. I took piano lessons, voice lessons, worked with a dialect coach, and I really invested months of just doing research about Nina – her background, her story, her life. My research ranged from reading books about Nina, listening to her music, watching footage of her.

How did the controversy about you playing Nina affect you?
The Nina Simone story needed to be told, and I’m really blessed that I did it. I’m human. I wish I was made of steel and so certain things wouldn’t affect me. So it did affect me but I couldn’t let that deter me from doing what I needed to do. Just like everybody else I feel very strongly about Nina Simone, and that [this] was a story that needed to be told. I do believe that if everybody had more information about how this all came to be, it might help; but then again, I’m not here to get the acceptance of everyone – I’m here to be an artist first. Hopefully people will enjoy the film and I helped shed some light on this amazing iconic

Do you feel like your heritage and ethnicity is always questioned?

I find it uncomfortable to have to speak about my identity all of the time, when in reality it’s not something that drives me or wakes me up out of bed every day. I didn’t grow up in a household where I was categorized by my mother. I was just Zoe and I could have and be anything that I ever wanted to do … and every human being is the same as you. So to all of a sudden leave your household and have people always ask you, “What are you? What are you?” is the most uncomfortable question sometimes and it’s literally the most repetitive question. Because I can’t wait to be in a world where people are sized by their soul and how much they can contribute as individuals and not what they look like … I feel like as a race, that’s a minute problem against the problems we face just as women versus men, in a world that’s more geared and designed to cater towards the male species.

You can read more of the interview here!

Though Zoe has received A LOT of backlash for getting this role (many believed she wasn’t dark enough to play the role), I know that she is very talented and has the potential to pull this off. Plenty of actresses have done it before anyway. Angela Bassett looked nothing like Tina Turner, and look how well that turned out! I’m going to rule out judgement until I see the finished product.

Shia LaBeouf Arrested After Disorderly Conduct at Broadway Show

More trouble for Shia LaBeouf! Turns out the actor was really rowdy at a Broadway show in New York City, eventually getting handcuffed, escorted out, and charged with disorderly conduct!

Shia was reportedly disruptive during a production of Cabaret in the city on June 26. A source at the show said he was “harassing audience members, harassing actors on the stage, and chain smoking inside the theater,” during the first act. “Shia seemed out of sorts,” another source said. “He was interacting with strangers during the show and slapping peoples’ backsides. He was trying to avoid the police and fell. Then he was cursing at the police while being taken into custody.” His misbehavior got him escorted out by NYPD during intermission. Sadly, I can see this whole scene so clearly in my head.

According to Broadway World, bystanders on the street where Shia left say the actor was “in tears when taken away by police.”

An NYPD spokesperson later told Us Weekly that Shia “has been charged with disorderly conduct. He was also charged with criminal trespass. While at Studio 54 he was upsetting patrons, being loud and yelling. He’ll be jailed. There will be a court appearance for this matter.”

Who does this?! I feel bad, but then again I don’t. It’s obvious that something is going on with him, and he needs to work it out. To me, Shia has always been talented (and cute when he’s cleaned up), and I hate that another actor’s talent is seeming to go down the drain. Hopefully, he gets himself together soon! I’m not sure what’s going to happen now that he’s officially been charged. He might just get off, but who knows? Maybe some jail time will straighten him out a little bit.
