Chad Ochocinco Confirms Engagement To Evelyn Lozada

chad_evelyn_engaged

It looks like the Ultimate Catch is officially off the market. Reality star and Cincinnati Bengal Chad Ochocinco sat down with Ryan Seacrest this morning to confirm his engagement to Basketball Wives’ Evelyn Lozada. Rumors have been flying since earlier this month when Evelyn tweeted a picture of a 10-carat ring Ochocinco bought her. Although it looked like an engagement rock, we couldn’t be sure until today.

“Yeah, man … It’s time for me to sit down,” he said on Seacrest’s KIIS FM radio show. “Enough is enough. I’m 32, you know. My days are over. You know how you deal with this person, that person, but you can’t ever find everything in one individual? I think I found everything I’ve been looking for in one person. [She's] everything I’ve been missing.” But still, that doesn’t make her perfect. “Ain’t no such thing as perfect…” he laughed. “[But she's] close enough.” She looks pretty good to us, too. Congrats on winning the Marriage Super Bowl, 85!

Leighton Meester Takes “Black Tie” Literally

leighton_main

It looks like Leighton Meester didn’t realize that “black tie” is just a figure of speech, or maybe she just didn’t care. She shouldn’t, because she still looked amazing arriving at New York’s Gotham Independent Film awards in a sleek suit. Any excuse to rock the Annie Hall look is fine by us, and it’s a far cry from the butt baring attire the Gossip Girl wore out a few weeks ago.

Tons of other stars showed up too, including the Hot Young Actress Holy Trinity: Anne Hathaway, Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman. Legends Bill Murray and Robert Duvall were also in attendance, as were old favorites Winona Ryder and Amanda Peet (long time no see, guys). Check out the faces and the fashions in the gallery below!

The Kardashian’s Cancel Their Credit Cards

Remember how the Kardashian sisters got their own prepaid debit card (presumably because the mint turned them down)? Well, the cards are being withdrawn from sale after only three weeks. Fiscally irresponsible teenagers will have to find a new way to buy their Frappuccinos.

The K sisters pulled out of the Mastercard deal after Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal claimed that the card was racked with potentially illegal “predatory” fees. In fact, the fees for their card are higher most prepaid debit card on the market. Use of the card alone costs $99.95 for the first year, not to mention the money that you have to put on it. It costs $7.95 each month after that, $1 to check the balance and $1.50 to withdraw. Got a problem with it? Call the help-line for $1.50 a call. Want to cancel? No biggie, but first fork over $6. It’s figures like this that make us glad we keep our money in a shoebox under our mattress.

“Keeping up with the Kardashians is impossible with this card,” claims Blumenthal. “Consumers lose money before they use money. Even before consumers spend a dime, the Kardashian Kard fees swallow the card’s value.” It could have been worse—they could have made it so it only worked at DASH. But cheer up, Kardashian sisters! Maybe we can pull some strings and get your faces on a license plate or something. “Kar-Dashian Plates: The perfect Sweet Sixteen gift.”

Yo Gabba Gabba Live: Stadium Rock For The Tiny Crowd

yogabbagabba

We’ll level with you: we have never watched Yo Gabba Gabba. Not once. But after seeing all of the hip Hollywood parents who turned out to see the cast live in LA this weekend, we’re starting to think we’re missing out. Everyone wanted to be there! It looked like a Lady Gaga show for the kindergarten set. Gwen Stefani, Nicole Richie, Dave Grohl, Jessica Alba, Tori Spelling and many many other famous families got their groove on with DJ Lance Rock at LA’s Nokia Center. Hell, even the kids look cooler than we are (check out Sparrow Madden‘s curly mohawk—very early Ian MacKaye). See which tinsel town tots (and their parents) were there rocking out in the gallery below!

James Franco And Anne Hathaway Are Hosting The Academy Awards

It’s confirmed! Those precocious Hollywood heartthrobs James Franco and Anne Hathaway will be hosting the 83rd Annual Academy Awards this February. But will they be able to trump the smoldering sexual chemistry of  last years hosts, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin? That is the question. Variety is reporting that both young stars have signed on for hosting duties, and that a formal announcement could be made as soon as this week.

Anne got her Oscar shoes wet two years ago, when she performed in an opening musical number with host Hugh Jackman. And James Franco probably has a Ph. D in award show hosting or something. Although it seems like a pretty cool choice, it looks like they may be too qualified to host this year. Both actors are potential Oscar nominees for their respective roles in 127 Hours and Love and Other Drugs. If they get the nod, there is a chance that they will back out.

The Oscars seem to be taking a page from the Super Bowl Halftime playbook by booking much younger and hipper stars to try to improve ratings. And they couldn’t have picked a better duo; just this week Pace University faced a record number of applicants who wanted to get attend a taping of James Franco’s appearance on Inside The Actor’s Studio. And Anne Hathaway is hot off of hosting the best episode of Saturday Night Live so far this season. Will she get to do her hilarious Katie Holmes impression in front of the lady herself? Or will Tom Cruise not be letting her out of the compound that night?

The Black Eyed Peas To Win The Super Bowl

peas_superbowl

The results of this year’s Super Bowl are in! No matter which team hits the most home-runs into the net (or however it works), the winner of Super Bowl XLV will be the Black Eyed Peas. The band has just been tapped to play the coveted halftime gig on February 7th at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. This is just the highlight of a stellar month for the group, in which they earned an AMA for Best Pop Group and got serious buzz for their upcoming album The Beginning, which comes out tomorrow.

The Peas will be a change of pace for the Super Bowl Sunday crowd, who have been favoring classic rock bands following the fall-out from Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson‘s controversial performance in 2004. We guess they thought it was unlikely for Paul McCartney or Bruce Springsteen to have a “wardrobe malfunction.” But times have changed, and apparently FOX is ready for a dose of Fergie’s humps.

“They could have picked anybody,” will.i.am gushed to Rolling Stone. “They could rock a million and get Cheap Trick. I love me some Cheap Trick, those motherf—ers is dope. But it says something that they picked us.” But it says something that they picked us.” Maybe it says that baby-boomer bands aren’t drawing ratings like they used to, and Gaga was busy. But can we expect a Black Eyed Peas-Cheap Trick duet!? That would be enough awesome to win every Super Bowl until the end of time.

Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga And Others End Their (Digital) Lives For Charity

kim_dead_main

As if Leslie Nielsen’s passing wasn’t sad enough, today we also mourn the digital deaths of Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake and a host of other celebs. These A-listers are quitting Twitter and Facebook to raise money and awareness for the Keep A Child Alive charity, which fights AIDS all over the globe. The stars plan to boycott the social networking sites starting on World AIDS day (December 1st), and vow to stay offline until $1 million has been raised for the organization.

This “digital life sacrifice” is the brainchild of none other than Alicia Keys, who serves as the global ambassador for Keep A Child Alive. The first posters for their provocative (and morbid) ad campaign have hit the streets, featuring Kim Kardashian lounging in a coffin. Other artists, including Usher, Swizz Beatz, Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Hudson and Elijah Wood, have filmed their “last tweet and testament” for promotional clips. Get your favorite celebs back sooner by donating!

This Thanksgiving We Are Thankful For Matty B

Get ready for a kid who makes Willow Smith seem over the hill. At the tender age of seven, Matty B has moves like Justin Bieber, spits rhymes faster than Eminem on coke, and has all the self assured swag of Kanye West. Just listen as he makes “What’s My Name” his own, arguably besting both the smooth vocals of Rihanna and the rappin’ rhythm of Drake on the original. Visit his Youtube channel to see what other songs he conquers!
