Jen Selter, owner of the most popular behind on Instagram, is a self-made woman. Call her the next Rick Ross if you’d like, but her butt selfies and fitness tips have helped her rise the ranks of Internet celebrity and become an undeniable force in 2014. She has nearly three million Instagram followers, an endorsement deal with Cirrus and was recently shot by Vanity Fair for a feature in the magazine’s April issue. We knew her first, and now it’s safe to say that Jen Selter has gone mainstream.
Happy Endings is a wonderful little show filled to the brim with pop culture references, bad hair, and Bar mitzvah dancers. Its abrupt cancellation in May 2013 temporarily robbed us of a reason to live simply because of the fact that there’ll be no new jokes from Max and Penny or traditional Serbian folk dance performances by the Kerkovich sisters. But fear not! The series has since been resurrected right here on VH1, and its creators and stars are all over TV and film in 2014.
Everyone has a regrettable first job or two, but how many of you took photos in your hideous fast food uniforms? Celebrities are people, too, and that means there are at least one or two embarrassing skeletons in their closet. Sure, Angelina Jolie would rather talk about saving the world or adopting another child, but before Billy Bob and Girl Interrupted she was just another Los Angeles teen with model shots burning a hole in her messenger bag. And she’s not alone!
From starring in Juice with a young Tupac Shakur to dancing behind Queen Latifah, Omar Epps has had an illustrious and diverse career. In the new ABC series Resurrection he plays J. Martin Bellamy, an American federal agent who finds himself inexplicably involved in a case of deceased family members coming back from the dead. Omar was careful not to spill the beans on the intricacies of the show’s central mystery during a recent visit to VH1, but he was completely down to show off his Kanye West impression. Yes, we all have one.
As if a Saturday Night Live hosting gig isn’t enough for one lifetime, Girls star Lena Dunham got cozy with the Obamas over the weekend. Dunham’s boyfriend, fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff, shared a photo of the fearless foursome on Instagram, making us wonder whether they each revealed their thoughts on Ukraine, or just jumped into a debate about Taylor Swift vs. Beyoncé.
The Oscars are over and Paris Fashion Week is wrapping up, which means we can finally stop pretending the ridiculous contraptions worn by some the world’s biggest stars are soon to be “on trend.” Rihanna has been in the City of Lights all week, hanging out with Oscar winners and breaking out dozens of outfits that would make a marathon runner stop in his or her tracks. Her short hair looks great, the bold lip is on point, but she’s still had some missteps.
Do you enjoy watching beautiful people cry about their problems? Clear some space on your DVR and put the next few episodes of House of Cards on the back burner. You’ve got some serious binge-watching to do.
High school is hard for anyone, and yet television is the one place that can make us feel lucky we don’t have the weight of the world, old-money familial expectations or supernatural super powers on our shoulders. The last 25 years have seen highly addicting soap operas for the teenage set–as dangerous to one’s mental health as Jessie Spano’s caffeine pills. These shows are usually delivered in prime-time, with accompanying soundtracks to deepen your connection, and then-unknown guest stars whose eventual stardom will justify those past viewing decisions.
Lupita Nyong’o‘s Cinderella story culminated with a win for Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars on Sunday night, and now she’s just reaping the benefits of being one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. We may be biased, but a golden statue is nothing compared to selfies with a certain Barbadian superstar, right?
They say mother and father know best, but when it comes to the business dealings of some of the world’s biggest stars, are parents always the best people to control millions of dollars? Certain stars seem to think so. From Scarlett Johansson to Lindsay Lohan and Beyoncé, plenty of Hollywood’s elite opts to hire within, recruiting mom or dad as their business manager. But what happens when they have some major mommy or daddy issues? D-R-A-M-A.
