New Breaking Dawn – Part 2 Poster Prepares Us For All That Vampire Action

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2

After a six-part rollout on all the official Twilight Facebook pages, Summit released the final theatrical one-sheet poster for Breaking Dawn – Part 2 this morning, and man, does it get our blood pumping. Sure, we liked all the intimate family scenes and gathering of special vamps from far and wide that the previous still gave us. But this one, like the sneak peek of the movie we saw during the VMAs, is all about the action. We always kind of dug the way the second half of Stephenie Meyer’s book turns into a sort of X-Men battle, in which it’s all about whose superpowers are superior — even though we know the victory will ultimately belong to those whose motivations are pure and right, rather than petty and vindictive. OK, that sounds cheesy when we say it that way, but it totally works in the book. We are feeling fierce just looking at Edward, Bella and Jacob. Are you?

Taylor Swift’s New Music Video Looks Like The Most Taylor Swift Thing To Ever Taylor Swift

We’ve seen some Taylor Swift things in our life, but there is nothing more Taylor Swift then the first shots of TSwift’s new video shoot in France. First of all, she’s shooting it in Paris. The whole thing is so French, there’s a window behind her that is inscribed with the word “croissant,” written in gold, and it isn’t even an important detail in the shot. Second of all, please look at Taylor’s baller status outfit. The only human being who can rival Taylor in the vintage patterned skirt and sheer blouse department is Zooey Deschanel, and even then Zooey hasn’t been photographed holding a tiny fruit tart. At least not recently anyway.

Boom! That’s some Taylor Swift game right there! We don’t even have to get into the red lips, do we? The shoot is apparently for Swift’s “Begin Again” video, which makes complete sense…

New Kate Middleton Bottomless Photo Is Just … Oof

Kate Middleton the Duchess of Cambridge

When those first topless pics of Kate Middleton were published earlier this month, we had two reactions — sympathy for the Duchess of Cambridge for having her privacy violated, and a bit of a shoulder shrug, because tons of ladies sunbathe topless in France and if you’re gonna do that and be famous, you should expect someone to catch you in the act, no matter how private you think your chosen estate may be. But now that a new set of photos has been published by Danish magazine Se og Hor, one featuring her changing out of her bikini bottom, we’re feeling really bad for her, and icky about people in general. We’re all for being proud of your body and showing it off whenever you like. But then we think about those times when we’ve been hanging out in a wet bathing suit and absolutely had to get out of it immediately, so we tried to maneuver our towels over the important bits in order to make a quick change, and then sometimes the towel slipped and we were really really glad no one who cared was around to see us (we think). Of course, the duchess would never be that lucky.

“We are a leading gossip magazine in Denmark, and it is my job to publish them,” the magazine’s editor told the Belfast Telegraph before the issue came out. “If the British royal family want to sue us, then it will happen then and we’ll deal with it.”

On the bright side, Kate, these pics are super grainy (OK, fine, everyone, head over to Egotastic to see scans of them). And also, when you guys sue the crap out of these tabloids, maybe you can donate that cash to some awesome charity or something.

Johnny Lewis Remembered Fondly By Nikki Reed, Katy Perry Reportedly Thought He Was “In Trouble”

Katy Perry and Johnny Lewis in 2006

We’re still getting shivers every time we think about what could make someone dismember a cat with his bare hands, as Johnny Lewis is said to have done before allegedly murdering his landlady and then jumping or falling to his death on Wednesday. But what’s even more confusing is reconciling that with the quotes coming from many fellow actors who remember the 28-year-old as an entirely different person.

“He was the nicest guy,” Nikki Reed told E! Online of Lewis, who appeared with her on The O.C. back in 2006. “I never thought anything but great things about him. I have nothing to say except that he was a really nice guy. It’s just crazy.”

Raising Hope star Shannon Woodward — who we think knew Lewis through his ex-girlfriend Katy Perry —tweeted yesterday, “Johnny Lewis, I love you deeply and madly and always. My heart is broken in a million little pieces. I will miss you every day.” She also said, “He was very, very ill. His actions were a despicable result of that. It was not who he was.”

And meanwhile a source told Us Weekly that Perry knew he had problems back when they dated from 2005-2006.

Hilary Duff Turns 25! Track Her Style From Disney Princess To Hot Mama

Hilary Duff turns 25 today, and we are happy to say that she’s looking better than ever. Over the past decade (and then some) we have seen her transform from a preteen princess to a sexy, sophisticated wife and mother. There’s no question that Duff hasn’t always been on trend when it comes to fashion, especially during her Disney days, but the star somehow managed to escape her squeaky clean image and has become a full-fledged hot mama! The freshly minted 25-year-old is enjoying her family life, but let’s face it, it’s time for her to get back to work. That’s why we were thrilled to hear that she has signed a talent/development deal with 20 Century Fox TV, in which she will star in a “half-hour comedy vehicle.”  We can’t wait! And if it’s half as funny as Lizzie McGuire it will totally be a hit. So in honor of her b-day we take a look back at some of the star’s best looks throughout the years. Enjoy!

Snooki, Kristin Cavallari Join the Ranks Of Twitpic-Crazy Celebrity Mamas

Make room for Camden and Lorenzo! Proud mommas Snooki and Kristin Cavallari have never been camera shy and it looks like their little ones are following in their footsteps, whether they want to or not. The two reality-TV stars are joining the ranks of other adorable twitpic-posting celeb moms Hillary Duff, Alisan Porter and Lily Aldridge. Kristin recently tweeted a pic of adorable son Camden Jack, who was born on August 8 and is already rocking his Chicago Bears gear in support of dad, quarterback Jay Cutler. Snooki is also blowing up Twitter with pics of son Lorenzo, who was born August 26! Who would have ever pictured these two MTV fixtures playing the mommy role so well? We love to see them doting over their precious babies! Vanessa Lachey also tweeted pic of son Camden John and hubby Nick Lachey. BTW, Kristin and Vanessa have similar taste in baby names and men — in case you don’t remember, Cavalleri was at one time romantically linked to Lachey after his divorce from Jessica Simpson … who also regularly tweets pics of daughter Maxwell! All love triangles and copycatting aside, we can’t wait for the next adorable baby pics. Take a look at some of the cutest celebrity we’ve seen lately:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Legacy Continues — But Where Are The Movies’ Stars Now?

Now that Nickelodeon is rebooting the uber-popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series, beginning this Saturday morning, a whole new generation will be shouting “Cowabunga!” as they imagine a life of fighting crime and eating pizza. Rob Paulsen, who voiced Raphael in the 1987 cartoon series, is back as Donatello, and he told VH1 and fellow stars Jason Biggs, Sean Astin and Greg Cipes about the privileges associated with being a turtle. “When you work on something this iconic … you make a phone call to a child in a hospital, or you show up at a friend’s kid’s birthday party or you go show up in the hospital — whatever it is, the impact that the Turtles have on children is so profound, way beyond action figures, ratings, all of that,” he said. “I now get email and notes from people I talked to 20 years ago.”

We’re happy to see Paulsen back doing what he loves, but that got us wondering what has become of the stars of the equally beloved and maligned TMNT movies of the ’90s. Those live-action flicks featured appearances by the likes of Vanilla Ice, Elias Koteas and Paige Turco, not to mention the voice talents of Corey Feldman and Kevin Clash, whom many of you might know as the voice of Elmo. Take a look at the career highlights of a number of the stars of the first three movies, and then relive a little of your childhood magic by tuning in to TMNT this Saturday!

New Girl Fashion Cap “Re-Launch” & “Katie”: Jess Is Back, Her Wardrobe More Amazing Than Ever

Zooey Deschanel New Girl

Are we the only ones who want to enter the world of Fox’s New Girl and steal Zooey Deschanel‘s entire wardrobe, along with her glasses, hair and/or skin? Or are we the only ones brave enough to admit it? Chew on that, clowns! As of last night, Zooey, her pretty dresses and her roommates are back for a second season, kicking things off with the double-header of “Re-Launch” and “Katie.” So we thought we would give you what you didn’t even know you wanted: a photo recap of Jess’s excellent outfits every week. We also threw a few bonus photos of Max Greenfield in a garbage bag diaper and Book of Mormon‘s Josh Gad hysterically crying just to sweeten the pot. We know. You’re welcome.

Kim Kardashian Finally Gives Us What We We’ve Been Waiting For: Permission To Belt Our Swimsuits

Kim Kardashian Belted Swimsuit

At last. We’ve been waiting our entire lives for someone to make this fashion trend happen. We should have guessed it would be Kim Kardashian who finally pulled it off. While filming for the upcoming season of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, Kardashian accessorized her white one-piece with a golden belt like she wasn’t even revolutionizing fashion as we know it (which she was). Think about it: what outfit doesn’t look better with a belt? That’s right: none of them. Plus, swimsuits are the hardest of article of clothing to wear. Isn’t it better to have the option to cinch in your waist? Oh man, someone has to tell What Not To Wear‘s Stacey and Clinton about this. This is going to change everything. For the better.

Overall, we’d say this is a way better look than the ladies’ bikini promo last week. Well, better for us normal people, we mean; Kim could wear an old box spring and still look like a statue of a Greek goddess. We’re just not sure whether to credit Kim’s new look to Kanye‘s influence or not. The golden part screams Yeezy, but girl has always known how to accentuate her teeny middle. Maybe Kanye could draw up some designs for a swim blazer? To be paired with a swim wedge and a wide-leg swim trouser? We’d all probably be dragged down into our watery graves, but wow, we sure will look good doing it!

Julie Bowen, Aaron Paul, Glenn Close And Other Stars Ham It Up In Our 20 Favorite Post-Emmy Pics

Sofia Vergara, Glenn Close, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Cat Deeley party after the Emmys

We have a feeling that unlike the buttoned up and glamorous stars at the Oscars — who continue quite properly to the Vanity Fair afterparty — the TV actors who attend the Emmys can’t freaking wait until after the telecast is over, so they can let loose and act more like themselves. And for proof, we need look no further than the hilarious photos taken last night. From the presenters’ gifting suite, where Glenn Close killed us with the above bikini cut-out, to the winners step-and-repeat, where Louis C.K. turned his Emmys into action figures, to the various afterparties, stars could not stop hamming it up. We had to be judicious and not make half of this gallery pictures of Julie Bowen having the time of her life, but trust us, the two you’ll see below are perfect representations. And you know how actors and musicians laugh at regular people’s notions that all famous people know each other? They’re lying. They really are all the best of friends. We can just tell.
