Is Crack Mayor Rob Ford As Bad As These Other Politicians In Sex And Drug Scandals?

View Photo Gallery

“I’m not perfect,” Toronto Mayor Rob Ford told Matt Lauer on the Today show, with regard to his admission that he has smoked crack when in a “drunken stupor.” Perfection, maybe, is not a thing we look for in our leaders. But we do kinda like for them to stay away from illegal drugs, prostitutes, extramarital affairs and naughty sexts with underage employees. As we watch how our neighbors to the north handle this interesting development, we can’t help but be reminded of other powerful men (and yeah, it almost always is the men) in public office who were caught in similar nonpolitical quagmires. From JFK to Marion Barry, Bill Clinton to Anthony Weiner, there are a whole lot of them.

Watch The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Red Carpet Live Here!

Not all of us were escorted by Effie and Hamish to the capitol, or, er, Los Angeles tonight to watch our beloved Hunger Games stars make their way down the red carpet. But the great generous government of Panem, ahem, our friends at MTV News, are live streaming their coverage of the event tonight! Enjoy as Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Sam Claflin and the rest of the stars say adorable things about their movie, which is about very un-adorable things. Here’s hoping they’re less soggy than at the London premiere!

Black Nativity Star Jacob Latimore Will Answer Your Questions Live On Very VH1


Just who is Jacob Latimore? If you’re a young R&B fan, you might already recognize him from his days touring with Mindless Behavior and Diggy Simmons. But the rest of us are about to hear his name a whole lot more as he shares the screen with the likes of Jennifer Hudson, Forest Whitaker, Angela Bassett, Tyrese Gibson and Nas in Black Nativity, which hits theaters on November 27. What’s it like to have your first big starring role at 17 in a movie with Oscar winners as your supporting cast? Well, that’s just one of the questions we have for Jacob when he stops by our Very VH1 Spreecast on Tuesday at 3 p.m. ET. You probably have plenty of your own questions too, which is why you should join us, sign in and ask him yourself. If you have a webcam, you may even get to talk to him face-to-face (well, virtually speaking).

Shailene Woodley To Michael Strahan: 12 Celebrity Tributes We’d Sponsor For The Hunger Games

View Photo Gallery

As fans of The Hunger Games know, it takes much more than muscle to be the last man/woman/child standing in the arena. It’s about cunning, adaptability and strategy, as well as good-old-fashioned survival skills. While these are not things you’d normally associate with pampered Hollywood stars, as we’re gearing up for the release of Catching Fire this weekend, we could think of a few favorite celebrities who’d do quite well in a Third Quarter Quell-style battle.

What Evan Rachel Wood Really Thinks Of Shia LaBeouf (And True Blood!)

As Disney stars gone wild go, Shia LaBeouf has been a little overshadowed lately by a certain girl formerly known as Hannah Montana, but with the release this weekend of Charlie Countryman, we were reminded of his tales of dropping acid to prepare for his role in the movie. LaBeouf plays an American visiting Bucharest, Romania, who falls in love with a beautiful cellist (Evan Rachel Wood) and gets mixed up with some dangerous mobsters (after getting slipped ecstasy, not acid, by his youth hostel roommates). When VH1 sat down with Wood this week, we asked what it’s like to play opposite a guy who’ll alter his brain to get into a scene.

Happy Birthday, Shailene Woodley! 22 Reasons She Deserves To Have A Huge Year

View Photo/Video Gallery

Some of our friends weren’t listening two years ago — when we saw Shailene Woodley dive into that pool in The Descendants and tear our hearts out in the process — that she was going to be the next big thing. Even when it was announced that she’d be in Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars, there were skeptics. This year, as Shailene’s birthday falls two days after the release of the Divergent trailer, we think there are a few more believers out there. As the Secret Life of the American Teenager alumna celebrates her 22nd birthday, we thought we’d list 22 reasons she deserves to be huge this year. Apart from, you know, her massive acting talent.

The Best Man Holiday Stars: Who Is The Hottest Of Them All?

View Photo Gallery

One of the keys to a good ensemble comedy is having a star to appeal to every taste — in this respect, we think The Best Man and The Best Man Holiday have succeeded quite well. The 10 leads from the sequel, in theaters on Friday, run the gamut from Morris Chestnut, for those who like manly football-player types, to Eddie Cibrian, for those who melt for a good dimple. The ladies range from seductive Melissa De Sousa to sweet Sanaa Lathan. Who is your favorite from among these beautiful people?

That Time Terrence Howard Told Us He Was 58 Years Old

Somehow, we forgot about this Terrence Howard factoid: The Best Man Holiday star became a grandfather when his 18-year-old daughter, Aubrey, gave birth to baby Hazel last December 26. When our own Kate Spencer sat down with Howard and co-star Melissa de Sousa to ask about what has changed in their lives since the best man came out nearly 15 years ago, he surprised her with the strangest thing we’ve ever heard a grandfather say:

Kerry Washington Isn’t The Only Un-Lucky One: 10 Absolutely Awful Celebrity Magazine Covers

View Photo Gallery

We have made no secret of our intense crush on Kerry Washington here at VH1, and you know we’re not alone. So why in Olivia Pope’s name would Lucky magazine feel the need to mess with her perfect face on the cover of the December/January issue? The too-small eyes, dimension-less teeth render and the weird angle of her head render her basically unrecognizable. But she’s certainly not the first celebrity to endure involuntary cosmetic surgery at the hands of overzealous editors and art directors.

Ryan Gosling’s Amazing Eyebrows Turn 33 Today: An Appreciation

View Photo Gallery

Seduction, concern, surprise, modesty, suspicion, intelligence — what part of Ryan Gosling’s anatomy can convey all these things in less than a second? Those delightfully scruffy eyebrows of his. As anyone who’s indulged in a Gosling meme or browsed through a collection of his red carpet photos can attest, the Gos loves to use his eyebrows to their fullest effect in front of the camera. Today, as the brows — and Ryan — turn 33 years old, we thought we’d give them the attention they deserve.
