If you are planning a wedding anytime soon, we highly suggest you befriend Questlove immediately. Not only can the guy play the drums for your processional and DJ the reception, he can also apparently photograph the event like a boss, as you can see from the photos he tweeted from last weekend’s wedding of Amber Tamblyn and David Cross. Of course, the fact that the bride wore a stunning, canary-yellow dress; the whole thing went down in the mountains, with the leaves changing; and the guests included a few photogenic folks like America Ferrera, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Jason Ritter, Kristen Schaal and Amy Poehler might have helped him quite a bit.
We absolutely love the Roots drummer for letting us feel like we were there — you can almost hear Yo La Tengo and Mission of Burma playing, live, at the reception. His Instagram essay begins with a pic of a sign that reads “2A Is a No Poop Zone,” explaining: “This weekend I went to the most awesome wedding ever. We had to camp in the woods. This sign greeted me.” We’re not going to ruin the beauty of this with any more words, except to say we’re super excited to see Amber back on the big screen in Django Unchained, and yeah, probably more excited to see David back on Arrested Development in January.
So, how awesome was Aaron Paul hamming it up at the Emmys this year? The Breaking Bad star just got even got cooler in our eyes due to certain updates on his Twitter account. Consider the awesomeness of the picture above. Hell yeah, it’s Aaron and Pierce Brosnan at a Radiohead concert in London! The two actors are currently filming A Long Way Down — an adaptation of the darkly comedic Nick Hornsby novel — together in England and must have become pretty chummy on set, as the photograph indicates. Aaron’s caption for the image reads, “Watching Radiohead in london with James Bond himself!! Love you Pierce. Yeah bitch!! Yeah Science!!”
But that’s when things get a little conky. His later tweets are pretty strange, because it seems like he got into trouble for … dancing. Yes, dancing. At a concert. What just happened there. His first tweet reads, “I’m proud I almost got kicked out of this stadium for dancing to Radiohead! What the hell else are u going to do at a concert?” It wasn’t like this was some run-of-the-mill concert arena, as well. They were watching the band at the O2 arena, which is massive, so we can’t understand why authorities would give him grief over busting a move? Unless he’s a really, really bad dancer, but that’s still doesn’t give anyone permission to throw a Mr. or Ms. Two Left Feet out, does it. His next tweet makes his feelings about the evening pretty clear. Read below and commiserate.
We’ve already talked about how certain celebrities, like Stacey Dash and Snoop Dogg may not be the best political endorsers. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t stars who make good and sincere spokespersons for candidates. Katy Perry performed at a fundraiser for President Obama in L.A. on Sunday night, along with Earth, Wind and Fire. She was super excited about it, tweeting, “Today I am so honored to play for the President!” Sadly, Obama himself had to leave right before the big performance because he was “whisked downtown only moments before he took the stage.” But he did give the performers major props saying, “My understanding is it was an incredible show. They just perform flawlessly night after night. I can’t always say the same.” A node to the debate, perhaps? But this story isn’t so much about the performance, or what he thought of it — it’s about what Katy did*zing *yes, we’re book-nerds. We know how Katy is the Queen of manicures, which inspired us to even make a game about celebrity nail-art, earlier this month. She just keeps the crazy nails coming — the picture on the right is what she got done for her performance. The caption accompanying the tweet was, “Appropriate nails.” Very appropriate nails — she has red, white and blue and Obama’s face on them. The next tweet came post her performance where she showed further support with the picture on the left, with a message saying, “I sang for President BarackObama last night because I believe in Equal Rights #ForAll #Vote.” You heard the lady!
No one can do nice as well as Taylor Swift can. Her wardrobe alone can be called America’s sweetheart! The country cutie mosied over to London from Paris, where she attended the Elie Saab SS 13 show, for the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards held at the Wembley Arena. Taylor arrived looked as wholesome as apple pie in a white Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet dress with a cut-out back, matching Charlotte Olympia pumps with her go-to jewelry brand, House of Lavande, this time choosing a ring. Then she totally changed things up when she took to the stage to perform Red. Down came the bun, in favor of cascading curls. The outfit went in for a much naughtier overhaul, as well. Taylor did her version of sexy — which is, you know, safely sexy — wearing a pair of high-waisted metallic hot-pants with a black, semi-sheer top with a smattering of sparkling embellishment tucked in. Metallic brogues completed the transformation. As did an her makeup with the extended cat-eye and redder lipstick. She seemed rather happy post-performance tweeting, “That show was like “EEEEEEEEEEE!!!”BBCR1 Teen Awards. Wembley Arena. I’m in love with you, London.” We surprised that she’s excited? Not really — she’s very excitable in general. But it’s still cute!
Woah. We have a feeling things are going to progress rather quickly after this little development. The Rihanna-Chris Brown- Karrueche Tran love triangle is officially done for now, since Chris and Karrueche broke up. Of the split, he revealed, ” I love Karrueche very much but I don’t want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna. I’d rather be single allowing us to both be happy in our lives.” “Friendship with Rihanna” wouldn’t be exactly accurate since the two have been paired together for everything from looking cozy at a Jay-Z concert, to hooking up at a club with Chris being spotted leaving her hotel room the next morning. But since Chris is single now, we thought that both his and Rih’s teams would be brainstorming about a debut plan — a way to usher in their couple-dom to the world. Oh right, sorry, they’re not together till someone gives a confirmation. Of course not. Please note our sarcastic voices. Throw the carefully chalked-out plan out the window too, because Chris has taken matters into his own hands. Just a few hours ago, Chris tweeted the link to a video called “The Real Chris Brown,” which has the tag line, “You think you know Chris Brown? You don’t know Chris Brown.” We can’t fully describe it for you, because you need to see it for yourselves! It’s basically a slickly shot piece of Chris talking, drunkenly, about how much his love life is stressing him out.
The video starts with a disembodied voice asking, “Wassup, CB” and his initial response is, “Man, I don’t know man! We had fun in the club! I’m a little drunk, so I’m gonna be honest. Y’all don’t really get the real Chris Brown so, I’d like to just be honest, man, I’m stressed out. That’s just real s—, man … I’m stressed out!” Then it gets interesting, as he goes on to say, “It ain’t about the music. I love my fans. It’s just … you know when you share history with somebody, then can you fall in love with somebody else. It’s kinda difficult, you know what I’m sayin‘? Is there such a thing as loving two people? I don’t know. I don’t know if that’s possible but for me, I just … I feel like that.” Right? We know. Insane! Read more…
So really, what is this “thing” between Chris Brown and Rihanna? We can’t say that they’re hooking up until someone officially spills the beans but it feels like the world’s worst kept secret. The two of them are currently in New York where Chris was just spotted leaving The Gansevoort Hotel, where Rihanna is staying, the morning after they were spotted making out a nightclub, where they were, “hugging and kissing, and going to the back of the club alone together.” The latest now is that hip-hop journalist, Elliott Wilson, just a few hours ago, tweeted this heads-up, “Me thinks Rihanna just entered the VIP with Chris Brown. Wow.” Wilson’s site, RapRadar, explained what the deal was. The singers had snuck into the VIP section of Jay’Z’s big concert at Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn to watch his show together. Wilson also took the photograph you see above, which said, “Breezy. Rih Rih.” Seriously guys. Just come out with it! Now that the picture is going viral, Brown’s girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, just tweeted the message you see below. And don’t forget the tweet she sent right after the Breezy-Rih kissing news broke out. Her pithy message was, “there’s a difference between a man and a boy.” What do you think she means by that? We have a couple of ideas! Oh and P.S: the word is she’s FINALLY left him.
Isn’t this the most awesome way to start a morning? Call us suckers for baby pictures, because we totally and unabashedly are. Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey had their baby boy a little over two weeks ago and their statement, given right after his birth, read, “We are incredibly proud to announce the birth of our beautiful baby boy, Camden John Lachey. Born today at 6:54 p.m., he came into this world at 8 lbs., 9 oz. and 21 inches. Love has truly been redefined for both of us.” So happy for the couple, but our first thought was — pictures, please? Ever since Vanessa showed off her baby bump on Twitter, we’ve been hankering to see some more shots, and now the wait is over. Vanessa tweeted this awesome snap of their newborn with a message that read, “NickSLachey and I are honored and humbled to introduce you to the new Love of our lives, Camden John Lachey.” This is the first picture the world has seen of little Camden, and it’s a super one. Look at that full head of hair! Now we’re going to feel all gooey for the rest of the day now, so, good on you guys.
We are not going to get over our obsession with Rebel Wilson anytime soon. After seeing her in Bridesmaids, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, Bachelorette, Pitch Perfect and, of course, at the VMAs, we have an undying love for the Aussie funny lady. Which is why we were shocked to read her tweets from over the weekend. She was out with her Pitch Perfect co-stars celebrating the birthday of Anna Camp and apparently had trouble at the door of a club (we’re guessing this was at the second stop of the night, since she tweeted the above pic of her, Camp and Skylar Astin from the party earlier).
” ‘I’m so sorry I don’t look like a prostitute’ (did say that but not loud enough for the other slurs in line to hear),” she continued. “I think this bouncer thinks I’m a contest winner from the mid-west x.” Read more…

Of course, there’s a video of this, but if you’re squeamish, then give it a pass, okay? Poor Justin Bieber actually threw up on stage while performing at a 18,000 strong crowd in Glendale, Arizona during his “Believe” tour at the start of the weekend. The singer was performing Out Of Town girl when he abruptly turned over, hunched over, lost his lunch and ran for cover — it’s all in the clip above. And yes, the crowd still cheered him on, bless them. Deja vu from last year when he got sick performing in the Philippines. He was throwing up off stage then, though. But the Biebs, trooper that he is, returned to say, “It’s hard for me, you know, not feeling great and throwing up in front of a bunch of people. Will you love me even though I’m throwing up on stage?” Needless to say, the crowd made sure he knew they loved him, and Bieber responded with, “OK. I wanted to give you my best show ever, so do you mind if I finish it?” And he did, for which he applaud him! A couple of tweets from him followed up the show. The first read, “Great show. Getting better for tomorrow’s show !!!! Love u” with a picture of him in bed (*squee* for the Beliebers) and then saying, “And …. Milk was a bad choice! Lol.” Lesson learned, hopefully. Stay away from anything lactose-based before performances!
