We are both shocked and not shocked about the bombshell: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are no longer the cutest couple on the planet, sources told E! News. They apparently broke up a week ago, but they took a page from political publicists and dumped this news on a Friday night. While on the one hand, we’re sad these two kids couldn’t work things out, on the other, can anyone be surprised that two such young kids weren’t ready to settle down forever? They’re at the peaks of their careers and looks. Besides that, E!’s source echoes the rumors we’ve been hearing about these two for months: “Because of their crazy schedules, it was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship,” this mysterious insider said.
The pair had been together, publicly at least, since February 2011 — that’s an eternity in young celebrity time. Especially given the pressures of Bieber’s fans, both the ones on Twitter and the crazies like Mariah Yeater, who claimed Biebs was her baby daddy last year. But mostly, they had a lot of too-cute-for-words moments in front of the cameras. In memoriam of their relationship, here are 20 photos of Justin and Selena.
If you’re like us, you’ve been following this election nonstop for a while — and if you’re like us, you mean the presidential election as much as the Twi-Fight going on over on MTV. Now we’re on pins and needles waiting to see if Kate or Jasper could possibly pull off an upset against Bella and Edward. But we also think it was kind of sadistic to pit the Cullens against any of the other vampires in the franchise. That’s why we decided to make our own little contest here this week — and to make the criteria a little bit simpler: we’re asking you to judge Volturi, Denalis, Amazonians and James’ crew all alike, purely based on their hotness. This is also tough, considering the fact that in Stephenie Meyer‘s mythology, all vampires are hot. But your blood might sing for some more than others. We managed to narrow this down to 20 vamps in all, now it’s your turn! Peruse the pics and vote. Poll closes Monday at 8 a.m.
Emma Stone has packed a whole lot of career into just a few short years, so we’re kind of amazed that she’s just turning 24 today — not that she can’t keep playing teenagers! As much as we love her looks and her too-adorable-for-words relationship with Andrew Garfield, what we really admire about Emma is her self-deprecation and her comedic timing. That’s why to celebrate her birthday, we decided to gather 10 of our favorite quotes from The Amazing Spider-Man star’s interviews. We dare you not to be charmed.
“I haven’t really heard any rumors about me, but I keep encouraging people to please make some up. They are always so much better than the truth.” — People, September 2010
“I challenge myself to take at least one fashion risk a day, otherwise I get stuck.” Allure, January 2009
Do you know someone who has a hyperspecific fantasy about Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe lounging nude together in an old-fashioned steel bathtub? You do? Then tell your mom or your roommate or yourself or whoever it is to get off the couch and come look at this photo! The Hollywood Reporter posted the first promo shot from the Sky Arts miniseries A Young Doctor’s Notebook. According to THR, the series is “darkly comedic” tale of a doctor remember his youth during WWI, but it seems to us that the title A Young Doctor’s Notebook is ambiguous enough to fit any kind of story you can think of. Any kind at all. You perverts.
“It was great, because you know you are the envy of every woman ever,” the Harry Potter star joked earlier this fall about shooting the tub scene. At least Daniel appreciates the position he’s in! We should probably add that Radcliffe actually plays a younger version of the Mad Men star, so their tubtime is merely a tubtime of the mind rather than, say, a naked ghost tubtime situation. And if you’re into that situation, good luck to you. You’re going to have to keep looking for a long time. That cannot be an easy thing to find. We imagine.
Our hearty congrats go out to actors Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell, the latest celebrity couple to get married in secret. The pair tied the knot in front of family and friends in California on Tuesday, Wood’s rep told E! Online. The former True Blood actress, who wore a Carolina Herrera gown, tweeted about it yesterday:
Evan, 25, and Jamie, 26, first met back in 2005, when they starred in a Green Day video together. After dating for a brief time, they broke up and Evan moved on to Marilyn Manson for four years. She reunited with the Billy Elliot star last year. Is it wrong that we can’t wait to see their beautiful, ethereal babies? OK, we’ll just hope for them to make a movie together first. Just look at how sweet they look together:
We are really beginning to wonder about Chris Brown. That is, wonder whether medical researchers are looking into what it is about certain people who seem to be completely missing the filter that says, “You may find this funny/acceptable/cool, but you will actually make yourself look like the worst human being, so don’t do it.” The latest evidence of CB’s missing filter is the above Instagram, which he posted yesterday with the caption: “Ain’t nobody F—ing wit my clique!!!!#ohb.”
Best case scenario, they were simply dressed as “nomads,” crossing the line of political correctness by using an ethnicity as a costume. (And that tattoo really was just supposed to be a Day of the Dead mask, too, right?) Worst, they are dressed as terrorists and making a statement about their attitude toward the rest of the world. Probably something in between. Like Breezy genuinely thought this would be funny. And again, turned out to be horribly, horribly mistaken. Oh, and did we mention he posted this on his way to Rihanna’s Halloween party?
Here are some other celebrities’ whose costumes in recent years didn’t come across quite as they’d intended:
We love sexy orthodontists and zombie Paul Ryans as much as the best person, but the best kind of costume would have to be the kid costume. Lady bugs, teddy bears, pumpkins, more teddy bears: there is nothing more adorable then a screaming, candy-filled kid on Halloween (provided, of course, they are not our kid.) Luckily, celebrities seem agree and have taken the Tums and migraine medication necessary to take their offspring out on the town in costume for us to squee over. They’re all super cute, but between Monroe and Moroccan Cannon and Honor Warren, we think we found the ten definitive cutest. Really. They’re like the Avengers of cute kid Halloween photos.
Halloween is finally here, and to celebrate we’ve rounded up the most scarily sexy twitpix from this October! OK, we do it at the end of every month, but today we’ve got a bumper crop of 50 (count ‘em!) of the hottest photos from the last month to light your jack-o-lantern. All of your favorites are here, including Queen of the Selfies Kim Kardashian showing off two smokin’ hot Halloween costumes. We’ve got super stars like Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Fergie, and super models like Heidi Klum, Kate Upton, Miranda Kerr, Candice Swanepoel and Bar Refaeli! VH1′s Couples Therapy star Courtney Stodden makes an appearance, as does former My Fair Brady goddess Adrianne Curry. But of course, lording over it all, is Twitter favorite Coco, back from her intrepid reporting on Hurricane Sandy. It’s all here in the gallery below! Make sure you take a look before you head out to trick or treat, folks.
As a young kid, there’s no dream like qualifying for the Olympics. Whether you grew up admiring Kerri Strug, Mia Hamm or Michael Phelps, you’ve probably pictured yourself on that podium, waving your hand proudly in the air to fans as the National Anthem blares around you. Well, not many of us become professional athletes, but Halloween is that time where we can fulfill that little fantasy of ours. And because the 2012 women’s gymnastics team is AWESOME, here’s how you can become an honorary member of the Fierce Five and take home the gold this Halloween! (And if you can rope in four other friends to join you, even better.)
1. Buy a plain red leotard online at a discount dance supply store ($18.05)
2. Dot the red leotard with Lumiere Dimensional Metallic Paint & Adhesive from an art supply store ($1.99)
All that backlash Clueless star Stacey Dash received earlier this month for tweeting her support of Mitt Romney seems only to have fired her up.
“Fighting the good fight. Godspeed. @reppaulryan @MittRomney #Romney/Ryan20,” she wrote yesterday, posting the above awkward photo of herself and Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan. The unintended consequence of this photo, and its late October timing, may be that the unlikely duo becomes a brand new Halloween costume meme. We’ve seen so many Paul Ryans out there already, a Stacey Dash impersonator would get points for extra currency. (For added impact, we recommend those in warmer climates don the red Baywatch-esque swimsuit she wore in her first controversial twitpic.) Read more…
