We’ve spent all of our spare time in the past couple of weeks obsessively Googling the Pitch Perfect cast, until it dawned on us that we could channel all this useless knowledge into an actual blog post. Thus, here we are, presenting you with the 10 very useful bits of surprising trivia you will definitely want to know after seeing Pitch Perfect.
1. Rebel Wilson was in a Christian a cappella group in high school.

Watch the show below and participate in the chat by clicking the little box in the upper right hand corner. Whee!
All it took was one look at Rebel Wilson‘s outfit at the Pitch Perfect press junket for me to instantly become obsessed with her. Her hair was perfectly coiffed, and she was dressed in a pink “R” varsity jacket, little velvet pirate slippers (like these) and massive name plate rings a guy in jail made her. I got really excited to dig into her various red carpet outfits of the past, and discovered that she seems to be really into classic glam with the occasional twist. Observe her elegant garnet number above – understated, pulled together and beautiful, with just a touch of bad-ass mixed in.
Check out 15 of her coolest looks in the gallery below – a couple are a little weird but most are seriously sleek, sweet and sometimes sexy.It’s evident that she approaches fashion with a serious eye as well as a sense of humor. And her best accessory? That insanely gorgeous smile.

How do I know it’s so freaking awesome? Because I’m your host (*waves and shakes your hand*) and I’m up to discuss anything and everything happening in Hollywood. I also drink out of a giant Twilight cup and sometimes my cat walks on-screen, so it’s pretty much the best thing ever. See you there!
Here’s the greatest thing we learned recently: Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson was in an a cappella group called Twelve Voice at her Christian high school. Amazing, right? The actress told us what it was like being part of Australia’s “dorkiest” singing troupe, in which she had to wear “peasant blouses and long velvet skirts.”
“There was no dancing, there was no cool choreography or cool songs when I sang a cappella,” she said. “We’d have to stand like this — we weren’t allowed to do any cool moves — and just sing church songs.”
She then blew our minds by singing us an example of the kind of tunes they got down to. A terrible song has never sounded so awesome.
“I thought a cappella was totally dorky, and then when I came to America and saw The Sing-Off, I though, ‘It’s pretty sweet,’” she said.
But if you really wand “pretty sweet,” you have to see Rebel as Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect, in which she handles singing her heart out and getting belted with burritos with grace.
Also, please check out Rebel’s amazing ring bling, which she told us was made for her by a guy in jail. Read more…
Us Weekly has a new story out this morning claiming that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have moved back in together. “They are living together and have reconciled,” says one of their infamously anonymous sources. “I knew he eventually he wouldn’t be able to resist her saying, ‘Please, please, please,’ ” said another “insider.” According to the article they’ve found a new home to share in L.A., as Rob’s Los Feliz digs “has too many memories.”
The pair hasn’t been spotted together publicly since Kristen’s Kiss-gate, but Rob was seen out and about enjoying Emmy weekend and Kristen just jetted off to Paris today for Fashion Week. Not that I expect them to go out together for a casual dinner of ramen noodles, what with the way the press is up their butts in a major way right now. Nay, I expect these two to lay kinda low, whatever the status of their relationship is (which, according to numerous reports, is very much ON).
Now, my first reaction to this new Us story was, “It’s none of our business. Let these poor people breath and live their lives without us interfering in their every move!!!” Because really.
But if I’m being honest — which I try to be, even when it’s mortifying — my second reaction to this was, “I know I care way too much about a couple I don’t know, but this gives me all the feels, and I really hope they are taking time to work through their issues and rebuild trust and just connect with each other in a meaningful way and, like, there’s no need to rush into anything, guys, but if this is what’s best for you and you’ve decided this together, then godspeed, you attractive pair of cuties, you! See you at Ikea!”
But really, it’s none of our business. Right?
What do YOU think of Us‘ story? Holler at me — comments, Twitter…you know where to find me. (And yes, I purposefully chose an old photo of Rob and Kristen because isn’t it cute? 2008, you were fun.)

Followers of VH1 Celebrity know that we’re big YA junkies around here, and we’re reeeeally excited for Veronica Roth’s Divergent to hit the big screen. American Horror Story’s Evan Peters is a favorite of ours for any and every role these days, so we asked him if he’d heard about Divergent or Lauren Oliver’s Delirium (also hopefully headed to a movie theater near you). Says Evan about Divergent: “My agent sent me that. I gotta read that!”
Um yes, you do! While Evan didn’t win our Divergent Dream Cast poll, we’d still love to see him make the transition to film, and think he’s got the emotional range to nail a part like Four (or maybe Augustus Waters in The Fault in Our Stars). What do you think, YA fans?
We also chatted with Evan about TV in general — this being the night when such things are celebrated — and the star admitted to his newly acquired habit: reality TV. Welcome to the club, Evan!
You can always count on VH1 to ask celebrities the most important questions on the red carpet. We headed to the Emmys with one mission and one mission only: to get as many stars as possible to sing their favorite TV theme songs. After all there are SO many good ones! Just try to pick your favorite. Cheers, Friends, The Jeffersons, Punky Brewster, Facts of Life, Welcome Back Kotter, New Girl, the amazing instrumental jams of The Cosby Show and Beverly Hills, 90210 — can you choose just one? The stars we talked to at the Emmys gave it their best shot and some even sang their picks because really, that’s the only way to do it. Wanna see what it looks like when Hank (Dean Norris) from Breaking Bad sings The Brady Bunch theme song? How about The Amazing Race’s Phil Keoghan singing Gilligan’s Island? Yeah, we thought so. Click on, friends.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is one of our favorite movies of the year, chock full of teen angst, great music and stellar performances from the young cast. We dug deep into the photo archives and grabbed some ridiculously adorable photos of the Perks crew from when they were at their very youngest. Yes, you’ve got Logan Lerman, Ezra Miller and the most precious and wee Emma Watson. But there are more amazing discoveries to be made, like Mae Whitman‘s child star past and Paul Rudd‘s inability to age.
Dig in below, and be sure to catch Perks in the theater — it opens in L.A. and NYC today.
