Mean Girls was released nearly 10 years ago, catapulting its star Lindsay Lohan to teen icon status. Barely 18 at the time, Lohan became a fixture on the Hollywood scene after the film’s release, hanging out with It Girls like Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, with mom Dina by her side. The attention bestowed upon her and her own group of Plastics soon shed light on a new batch of modern celebrities: the reality star. Reality television became a legitimate form of entertainment in the 2000s, spawning many successful personalities like Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, and legitimizing the inexplicable draw of heiresses with sex tapes.

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work at a startup? Would you freeze in the presence of paper company legend, Michael Scott? Can you handle getting berated by Selina Meyer‘s staff on a daily basis? Silicon Valley star Zach Woods knows each of these scenarios all too well. And luckily, he’s not afraid to talk about them!
Think fast: Is that Jared Leto or Jesus Christ? If you said “both,” you are correct! But can you tell them apart? We always thought the ombre-loving Oscar winner reminded us of someone, but we didn’t realize his resemblance to JC was this strong until we saw them stand side-by-side.
You may know Idris Elba for his work on The Wire. Or maybe you’re a fan of his musical side as DJ Driis. Did you catch him in Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom? Of course. He was great in that, and totally deserving of his Golden Globe nomination. But what about that Oscar snub? While these are all valid conversations to be had about the talented English actor, his extreme handsomeness should not be overlooked. And now that he has become a father for the second time, he’s headed to the top of our list of DILFs. That’s Dad I’d Like To F–k. Happy Friday!
Last night’s explosive Scandal finale pushed the limits of fair play in the crazy world of D.C. manipulation and international terrorism. Yesterday Papa Pope (Joe Morton) told Big Morning Buzz Live host Nick Lachey who he’d want his television daughter to grow old with. So did Olivia choose Fitz or Jake?
Warning: Scandal Season 3 finale spoilers ahead!
1999 was a much simpler time. Brad and Jen. Julia and Ben(jamin Bratt). Teenage films starring actual teenagers topping the box office. Without the addition of reality television and internet celebrities, movie stars were the biggest names covering the pages of tabloids and MTV’s TRL was a must-hit stop for anyone wanting to make an impact on an audience under 30. Before the onslaught of reality star sex tapes and power couple portmanteau, Julia Roberts was just a girl, dating a Law and Order hunk and Nicole Kidman was still married to Tom Cruise. (Pause for laughs.)
With Drake and Rihanna moving ever so close to being Facebook official, the next blurry celebrity relationship to fuss over is obviously that of Cara Delevingne and Michelle Rodriguez. Are the 21-year-old model and the 35-year-old actress more than just friends, or do they simply really, really like to have a good time? Hmm. To the Instagram accounts we go!
They say if you can make it in New York City, you can make it anywhere. Which may explain why so many stars are taking to the Great White Way with roles in Broadway shows this year. Another possible explanation for a move to New York: CitiBikes, cronuts and the proximity to Beyoncé and Jay Z.
Finally, the 2014 MTV Movie Awards gave Zac Efron’s chest muscles the spotlight they deserve. We’ve long appreciated Efron’s physique, but it was nice to see him awarded for his fine work in a public forum, and give his adoring fans exactly what they wanted. Nicki Minaj stepped out as an actress at last night’s big show, and had no problem hanging with her The Other Woman costars and publicly hitting on Matthew McConaughey.
