Ladies, what we we doing here? We can’t be the only ones who were surprised to see you slow-motioning in Boregore‘s new “Decisions” video, a sentence we never could have foreseen having to type until right this second. If we are going to see you two smeared with cake in a music video, it should be in a Miley Cyrus joint for a Miley Cyrus song, not hanging out behind some other singer just looking amazing. Plus you had to appear next to so many spirit hoods. What is this, eight months ago? You guys. Seriously.
We guess we didn’t really mind it when you guest starred on Two And A Half Men because at least that was a different medium. But even as a featured artist, Miley sounds too good for us not to wish this could just be a new Miley Cyrus song. And not dubstep. Boregore had better be producing some sick, sick jams for Miley’s fourth album, which now has to come out a day later as a result of you guys shooting this video. Thanks a lot, you two. (Miley’s hair does look amazing though. Please let it know by whatever means body parts communicate with one another.)
We haven’t heard a whole lot of news updates coming out of the Hunger Games: Catching Fire shoot going on in Atlanta — the few pictures we’ve seen do look appropriately awesome, though — but it must be going well. Well enough that Lionsgate has opted not to go the Twilight/Harry Potter route of having a different director for almost each installment. Deadline reports today that Catching Fire helmer Francis Lawrence will be directing the adaptation of Mockingjay, the third book in Suzanne Collins‘ dystopian trilogy. As had been previously announced, that third book will be divided into two movies, slated for release in November 2014 and 2015. That’s quite the vote of confidence, and it’s making us all the more excited for a peek at Catching Fire.
Wednesday is kind of a lame night for Halloween, so celebs and us regular folks have been celebrating since the weekend! But yesterday marked the final costumed hurrah, where Hollywood A-listers got their last chance to venture out in bizarre costumes, before it’s officially considered weird again. Kim Kardashian showed up to her Halloween party at Miami’s Fontainebleau in a skin tight Cat Woman catsuit, while boyfriend Kanye West donned a Batman outfit (natch), making them 2-0 with the hilarious couples costumes. Batman and his crew were a pretty popular choice this year. Kim’s sister Kourtney went as the Dark Knight alongside Scott Disick, who battled it out with Paris Hilton for the title of the Sexiest Robin. At first we thought Basketball Wives star Gloria Govan ALSO went as the great caped one, but it turned out to be a cat burglar. Our bad.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson took things down a slightly creepier path (also natch), donning what appear to be Groucho Marx masks to a party at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Or maybe it’s Ernie Kovacs. Whatever it is, it’s just plain scary! Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart cheered us up, going as geeks. And the Hulk made things super easy by going as…himself. But he’s had a rough few weeks, so we’ll forgive him. Check out more costume fun in the gallery below!
No Halloween across the pond for these ladies? The 2012 Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards were held at the Claridge’s Hotel in London yesterday, and we have some action of the red carpet to report. Where Marion Cotillard is, we are, and even though some people may think her sartorial choices are bust, we think she’s amazo and will always defend her to the hilt. So, while there is negative buzz about her wearing those pale gray Dior pointed pumps with her dark navy Dior Spring 2013 (sort of) mullet dress, we think, as always, she pulls it off, especially thanks to those exquisite Chopard diamonds around her neck. The surprising belle of the event was Gillian Anderson — cue The X-Files tune — who looked banging in a Nicholas Oakwell Fall 2012 Couture fitted nude gown with a train. We love the shimmer of the silver patterning, and her blond quiff is boss. Another fashion favorite worked it out at the event as well. We’re talking about Mizz Emily Blunt, who looked delicious in her tangerine Alexander McQueen dress and bag with Burberry shoes. We can’t decide who looks best here, but we think the photograph below may push the ballot in Emily’s favor. What do you think?
We were totally ready to ignore Ancestry.com’s latest “everyone famous is related to everyone else famous” announcement — after all, what could top Justin Bieber and Ryan Gosling being cousins? — but then we discovered the above two photos. It took the site extensive digging through the family histories of George Clooney and Abraham Lincoln to come up with a connection in Kentucky, through Lincoln’s maternal grandmother Lucy Hanks. Ancestry’s Michelle Ercanbrack told People that they are half-first cousins five times removed. That may sound distant, but look at how much their expressions match! Despite his prankster rep, there’s always been something stately about Clooney, especially when he’s fighting for a cause.
Incidentally, Tom Hanks has also said he’s related to Lincoln via that maternal side. And Clooney now shares something in common with BFF Brad Pitt, who’s a distant cousin of Barack Obama. Personally, we like imagining that Honest Abe really was a vampire hunter too, making his family forever a mortal enemy to the likes of Robert Pattinson and Prince William, who are distant relatives of Vlad the Impaler. We have very active imaginations sometimes.
On today’s live episode of Very VH1 we’ll be chatting about our favorite Halloween TV episodes this year. We’ll be discussing New Girl, Modern Family, Parks & Rec, The Mindy Project and of course American Horror Story!

Last night’s episode of American Horror Story: Asylum exposed many repressed truths of our favorite characters. Sister Jude’s haunted past continues to unravel, and Sister Mary Eunice has had a sexual awakening that cannot be tamed. This was all set amid the backdrop of a storm that was “supposed to affect the entire Eastern seaboard.” That certainly hits a bit close to home this week for us this week with Sandy. Did Ryan Murphy know something before the rest of us? Anyway, since this episode begins to reveal the subconscious of Sister Jude, Dr. Arden and Sister Eunice, there were plenty of juicy, unfiltered quotes. Here are 10 of our favorite lines of the episode, showing that much of the “crazy” isn’t just restricted to Briarcliff’s patients.
“You have quite a suspicious mind, sister, bordering on the delusional. Or maybe it’s just a form of projection. A defense to protect your own guilty conscience.” — Dr. Thredson on beginning to decode Sister Jude
“You can swear all you like, Mr. Walker, but I will get to the truth. In here. We have all the time in the world.” — Dr. Arden while he’s experimenting on Dr. Walker Read more…
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:
It was a big evening for Jenny McCarthy last night. Not only did she have Halloween to celebrate, but her final moments as a thirty-something as well! Yes, it’s hard to believe that the pin-up turns 40 years old today, but she didn’t let that slow her down as she stepped out at the Gallery Nightclub in Las Vegas to party hearty. Jenny showed off her super bod in a sizzling lingerie catsuit that served as a giant well deserved “F U” to aging.
The beautiful Ms. McCarthy got her start as 1993′s Playmate of the Year, but we were seven when that happened, which is a bit too young for Playboy. So she first caught our attention a few years later as the host of MTV’s classic 90′s dating game, Singled Out. Since then she’s gone on to appear in hilarious movies like BASEketball and The Stupids, and hit TV shows such as Home Improvement, My Name Is Earl, Just Shoot Me, Two And A Half Men and so many more. She did date Jim Carrey for a while, so her judgement isn’t totally flawless. But this isn’t a perfect world, is it?
On top of being a stunning model and a hilarious actress, Jenny has worked tirelessly for charity, and become an outspoken activist for finding better ways to treat autism. She’s written books, appeared in video games…is there anything she hasn’t done?! And Hugh Hefner asked her to pose nude once again for Playboy in July, which just proves that she hasn’t lost any of her sex appeal over the last two decades. In fact, she’s gotten even better! We anxiously await her return to the airwaves with her new VH1 talkshow next year. So in honor of the multi-talented Jenny hitting the big 4-0, we’ve decided to take a look back at her 25 sexiest out fits of all time. Enjoy!
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:
