“I put all you bitches onto them good lace fronts,” Nicki Minaj brags in “The Boys” of her trend-setting love of wigs. Did she make us love wigs, or did the wigs make us love the Harajuku Barbie? Today marks Nicki’s 30th birthday, and as much as we admire her for her ability to switch up her hard edged flows with sugary sweet melodies, we’d like to take this opportunity to celebrate her creative tresses. From a geisha knotted updo, to a ’90s inspired high top fade, or her many cotton-candy pink pieces, Nicki keeps things exciting up top. It’s even said that she has a room exclusively dedicated for only her glorious wigs.
Wish Nicki a happy birthday today as you flip through this beautiful rainbow of hair flavors!

Everyone has something negative to say about Lindsay Lohan these days and the same goes for her new Lifetime biographical piece based on the love of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Liz & Dick. Last night was the debut of the highly anticipated film, and today it’s the butt of jokes all over social media. Of course so much was riding on the her performance in this film; not only did she have the tricky task of doing the screen legend’s diamond-encrusted life justice, but the flick was generally seen as a make-or-break attempt at a career comeback. Unfortunately, the film didn’t capture the hearts of viewers the way Liz has so many times throughout her career in films such as the sexually frustrated Cat in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof or the dynamically powerful Cleopatra.
But regardless of whether Lindsay’s acting in the film was horrible or not, we have to remember she has made some films in her career that are staples in pop culture history. Who could forget Mean Girls, where we see every high school girl of this generation’s life being simulated through a quirky story of lies. Don’t get us started on the young starry eyed, red-haired girl we all fell in love with when she fooled us all into believing she had an identical twin in The Parent Trap. Then there’s the under the radar film Bobby, based on the shooting of Robert F. Kennedy where she shined bright as Hollywood Film Festival’s Best Breakthrough Actress of 2006 playing the role of Diane Howser.
We’re not sure whether or not Lindsay Lohan’s career can rise from the ashes, but instead of joining the roasting session this time around, we’ll take a second to bask in some of her best on screen moments.

Thanksgiving is a day to spend time with the people you’re thankful for and eat until your heart’s content. Over the holiday weekend Beyonce and Jay-Z (people we’re very thankful for) showed us an intimate side of their lives by sharing photos of their Thanksgiving dinner and even a few of baby Blue Ivy. The superstar ‘rents have made sure to keep their daughter out of the spotlight, and instead of all those impersonal paparazzi shots they rather share their own images in their own intimate way via Tumblr. We can basically feel the warmth radiating from these photos and can’t get over Blue’s adorable full head of hair. Beyonce also wished us all a “Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving” from her family in a Tumblr note.
Let’s all collectively give a sigh of “Aww” and hope to be just like them one day as we lovingly look at these adorable photos of the royal family.
Thanksgiving is way past over by now, but don’t feel guilty about still eating those leftovers. Lady Gaga was doing the same thing when she was discovered “35 monsters” in the garage of her Peru home. When the pop star woke up in the nude to make a midnight run to the kitchen, she noticed some unexpected house guest on her security camera while making a leftover plate. In true Gaga fashion she embraced the “bad kids” and tweeted “#MONSTERFACT when gaga is asleep try to break into the garage, sing loud as possible, + ring the doorbell repeatedly #happeningnow.”
According to Sky New Lady Gaga didn’t notify any authorities and even allowed the fans to spend the holiday with her and her family. She even honored them with the endearing title “friends.” So next time someone tries to break into you’re home think to yourself: “What would Gaga do?” Maybe inviting them in for dinner will solve all conflicts – or then again, maybe not. We guess next year we’ll be camping out in Gaga’s garage too; who better to spend your Thanksgiving with than our beloved Mother Monster? At least her holiday was better than Halle Berry’s…

Every year at this time, I give thanks for having a loving family and all the fortunate things that have happened in my life. I’d also give thanks to my wife if I had one, but to fill that void I’m thankful for all the other wives on television. The day a reality-TV wives came into my life, I knew everything about the world had changed for the better. They embody I love about a woman: beautiful, charismatic, hilarious and intolerant of any disrespect, even if it means a catfight. Not that they’re all alike, however. There’s the sugary sweet Tia and Tamera in contrast to the rowdy and sometimes rough around the edges Basketball Wives. Tamar‘s over-the-top.com personality next to Teresa flipping tables on Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Desperate Housewives might have been what sparked the flame for the Housewives mania, but it’s not doubt these Reality Wives have made a name for themselves well beyond the fictional soap. There’s no slowing down these women, and they’re only getting juicier every year — see: Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta and Hollywood Exes. In order to show my gratitude for these lovely ladies here are some GIFS of the Best Moments in Reality Wives History, according to me: Read more…
What do Nicki Minaj, tattoos and dogs all have in common? Well, judging from Miley Cyrus’ Twitpics, they seem to be her favorite things! In honor of Miley Cyrus leaving her Hannah Montana teen years behind and entering the new era known as her 20s today, we’ve decided to celebrate by gathering her hottest Twitpics.
Ever since that fateful day this summer when Miley traded her long brown tresses for a short, her hotness level seemed go even further off the charts -and we’re not complaining! What’s more cute than Miley dressing up as big bootied diva Nicki, complete with butt pads and tiger print unitard? Her Maltipoo, Lila, for a start! We won’t tell her fiance, Liam Hemsworth, but it looks like her dogs get the most love here. Despite planning a wedding and still working on world entertainment domination, she still has time to give us a sexy Twitpic every now and then. Let’s bask in the rays of her platinum-blond ‘do as we click through her photos.
We’ve all fallen in love with Amber Rose for her funky style as much as her sweet demeanor — that includes her signature, super-short haircut. But the soon-to-be Mrs. Wiz Khalifa may need to guard her buzzcut crown, because Charlize Theron has been owning the minimal style lately, albeit for her role in Mad Max: Fury Road.
Over the years we’ve seen a number ladies in Hollywood bravely shave their heads for roles — like Demi Moore in G.I. Jane or Natalie Portman in V for Vendetta — so Charlize is hardly alone in shearing her beautiful flowing blonde locks for an edgy brunette cap. But how does she stand up to a model who makes wearing the near-bald hairstyle a fashion statement on a daily basis? Well, we can’t decide for ourselves, so we’re putting this question to you: Whose hotter hairless? Peruse the gallery and vote. Poll closes Sunday at midnight!

On last night’s The New Normal, the story revolved around a pretend wedding for elementary-schoolers Shania and Wilbur, who, after three and half weeks of courtship, felt it was time to put a ring on it. Bryan used this opportunity to live out his dreams of a wedding with David, making it a fabulous event that included lamb sliders and a dress made of leaves. Of course, no wedding is complete without a tearjerking speech. Instead, Rocky, played by NeNe Leakes, read the words of Shania’s favorite poet, Nicki Minaj.
“You always told me forget the haters, just get my money, just get my weight up,” quoted NeNe, from Nicki’s 2010 song “Right Thru Me.” You can watch the whole moving recitation in the video above. When the show aired, the Real Housewife tweeted “I live 4 Nikki chile.” Now we can only hope for a cameo of NeNe in the next Nicki Minaj video.
NeNe’s transition from reality star to actress has been quite the seamless one, and on The New Normal, we see her shine bright like the hilarious — and highly quotable — star she was born to be. In case you aren’t onboard with us yet, here are four reasons to watch NeNe as Rocky on The New Normal: Read more…
Gwyneth Paltrow turns 40 today, and we’re pleased to report that with maturity, the actress has apparently reached a much more stable sense of fashion. In order to appreciate this, we decided to give you a look at Gwynnie’s not too distant past as the queen of style hits and misses. Eccentricity and edginess can really be the game changer when it comes fashion, but this tactic occasionally backfired for Paltrow. From weird, unshapely shoulder pads to long, velvet and silk skirts that she may have borrowed from a gothic witch’s closet. We hope she saved some of these dresses for Apple to play dress-up with, though. We hope Gwyneth Paltrow can take a stroll down memory lane with us, while we laugh off these fashion fails, and she can say, “What the hell was I thinking?”
The iconic rapper Missy Elliott is ready to make a triumphant return to music today following a four-year hiatus. It’s been way too long since “Shake Your Pom Pom,” and we’re counting down the minutes until 7 p.m., when she drops not just one, but two new singles! In honor of her comeback we’ve decided to give you a look into the influential rapper’s closet of Supa Dupa Fly looks. Whether it was wearing a big black latex balloon as jumpsuit or full-out Adidas outfit, Missy has always brought us some of the most outrageous clothing the entertainment world has ever known. Today we see the insane looks from Nicki Minaj, but let us never forget about Missy E’s flamboyant jumpsuits and out-of-control costumes. We’ll be reminded of how she can push the limits and “Work It” soon enough with the new album that’s on its way.
Missy has made a few appearances on songs in the past few years like on Demi Lovato’s “All Night Long,” Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night (Remix),” and J. Cole’s “Nobody’s Perfect.” Let’s hope we get more looks to add to the Missy’s craziest looks repertoire with this new era of her solo career!
