The Sound of Music tribute at the 87th Academy Awards was a much-needed boost of adrenaline in an otherwise boring telecast. Lady Gaga was universally praised for it. Julie Andrews raved about Mother Monster’s rendition of the iconic songs and even gave her a heartwarming hug on stage.
One person who had a massively different take on the performance was Shonda Rhimes. The prolific television producer, responsible for so many OMG moments on ABC Thursday night, slammed the performance. She typically exhibits excellent taste when it comes to selecting songs featured on her shows. Perhaps she stole one too many of Olivia Pope’s gigantic glasses of wine.
“That was not okay. I mean, Idina is there. She is right there. RIGHT THERE. And oh dear God, Julie had to hear that. #Oscars2015.” – Shonda Rhimes via Twitter
When fans disagreed with her sentiment, Rhimes replied, “I probably did miss the point. Everyone else loved it. That’s okay.”
While I love Idina Menzel, I’m glad producers chose Lady Gaga. She slayed it. Gaga’s charming performance was powerfully restrained and included just the right amount theatricality. She stole the show in my opinion. Sometimes her outrageous antics take away focus from how gifted a vocalist she truly is. Relive the most memorable moment at the 2015 Oscars below.
At long last, Lauren Conrad can finally have piece of mind. I’m sure she’s spent countless nights hoping her former BFF would forgive her. NOT!!!
The 28-year-old reality star is currently on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars. During an emotional exercise, Heidi ‘forgives’ LC for ‘ruining’ her life. It’s good to see that Heidi Montag is as cray as ever.
“I was the best friend you’ve ever had,” Montag tells a Conrad stand-in, adding, “Lauren, I forgive you for being so insecure in your life and so frustrated for everything that you went through that you felt like you had to blame it on me because that was easier. I forgive you for trying to ruin my life.”
I don’t know what show she was watching, but if memory serves me correct, it was the other way around. Heidi’s husband, Spencer Pratt, also has some bottled up issues regarding their former show. He unleashes his anger about a former television producer who tried to ‘destroy’ his life and marriage.
This post probably only appeals to diehard fans of The Hills, like myself. Ashamedly, I was obsessed with the MTV reality show. I couldn’t get enough of Audriana’s ceiling eyes, Lauren’s braids, Brody’s hotness, Whitney’s expressions and Jen Bunney. Being totally sarcastic on that last one :)
Watch both Heidi and Spencer confront their personal demons below. Will this finally be the closure they both need? I highly doubt it.
On Oscar night you can’t have your average run-of-the-mill photobooth. Especially when you’re Vanity Fair and hold one of the most exclusive and hottest parties. The publication enlisted frequent GQ contributor Mark Seliger to snap some of the celebrities who attended their annual fete.
“As guests leave the red carpet and enter the main #vfoscarparty space, they’ll have the option to stop by the studio and stake a claim to immortality — or at least strike a few portfolio-style poses.” – Vanity Fair explains about their photobooth
Who chose the option to be immortalized? Oprah Winfrey, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Aniston, Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne, Adam Levine, Karlie Kloss and Monica Lewinsky to name a few.
Speaking of the latter, how did the former White House intern snag an invite to the party? I’d like some tips on how to crash this party one day :) Check out more photos below Vanity Fair shared on their Instagram account.
Whenever you hear the term ‘baby prostitute‘ from Mean Girls, do you think of Selena Gomez or Ariana Grande? For me, the 22-year-old baby-faced “The Heart Wants What It Wants” singer immediately comes to mind. ‘Human cupcake‘ is a far more apt description for Grande, don’t you think?
Like so many former child stars before her, Gomez goes topless on a magazine cover to show she’s all grown up. Photographer duo Inez & Vinoodh snapped the editorial for V magazine. Check out more photos below, along with more quotes from the accompanying interview conducted by James Franco.
“I think the next time [I have a boyfriend] will be much different…which will definitely not be anytime soon. That’s a growing up kind of thing. I was 18 years old, and it was my first love. The older I get, I’m guarding certain things more.”
Not only is he the highest paid DJ in the world, but dare I say he’s the hottest as well. Calvin Harris almost broke the internet last year when Emporio Armani revealed the first images of the Scottish DJ as their new spokesman. I fully expect these two new images to go viral as well. Rita Ora was a fool to cheat on him ;)
The 31-year-old once again shows off his extremely taut torso for the brand’s Spring/Summer 2015 underwear ad campaign. The moody black and white campaign was shot in Los Angeles by photographer Boo George. “He isn’t a model by nature, and this creates a more sincere and engaging bond with the public,” says the Italian brand. Check the recently-released promo pics below.
Who knew Lady Gaga was such a traditional gal? Guess hanging out with Tony Bennett mellowed her out. Getting engaged on Valentines Day would’ve been the last thing I would’ve expected from Mother Monster. My money would’ve been something more unconventional and unique.
“He gave me his heart on Valentine’s Day, and I said YES!,” she revealed via Instagram
After four years of dating, Taylor Kinney decided to make an honest woman out of Gaga. No “Bad Romance” here. The two met while shooting her “You and I” music video back in 2011.
Reportedly, the Chicago Fire hottie popped the question on V-Day with a huge heart-shaped diamond ring. They then celebrated the engagement at Gaga’s family restaurant, Joanne Trattoria, located in the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
Check out a photo of the ring below, along with a pic of the happy couple celebrating.
To celebrate its 10th anniversary, the Korean edition of W magazine chose Rihanna as their cover girl. Not for just one, but for three collectible covers. Photographer Dennis Leupold snapped the 26-year-old singer for the special occasion.
RiRi sports three distinctively different stylish outfits. On the one above, she looks angelic in an all-white ensemble which includes a sexy unzipped dress. In another, she rocks a royal blue coat accessorized by red strappy sandals and lastly, a satin mustard number in the third. Check out the other covers below and weigh in on which one is your favorite afterward.
Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson celebrated their first Valentines Day as a married couple by posing for a steamy photoshoot. Someone’s still in their honeymoon phase ;)
The 34-year-old singer and her silver fox hubby claim to be paying homage to Fifty Shades of Grey due to their hashtag #FIFTYSHADESOFJOHNSON, but the photos seem more on the tame side. Where are the whips, chains and bondage attire Jess???
Regardless, the photos are stylishly done and the couple look great. Check out their Instagram photos below.
