One year ago today, Beyonce’s baby bubble burst, bestowing the beautiful Blue Ivy Carter onto a breathless world (sorry we ran out of B’s at the end)! Jay-Z and Queen Bey’s little girl went on to dominate 2012, despite the fact that she wasn’t doing much more than eating mashed carrots and figuring out how to lift her head.
Clearly she got her dominating skills from her parents, and probably her Godmother Oprah Winfrey. Not that we’re judging, but we’ve been wondering what kind if path this mega-star offspring will take when she grows up and can actually…you know, do stuff. We’ve done our homework, and we’ve broken it down into the 5 basic Super-Couple Spawn varieties. Let us explain.
Super-Couple Spawn Variety 1: Parent Version 2.0
Like mother like daughter/like father like son, these famous folks get a leg-up with their name and try to stage a repeat performance of their parents’ success. Fame is a family business after all, but sometimes lightening doesn’t strike twice and the results are pretty mediocre. Examples of that include: Nancy Sinatra, Colin Hanks, Lisa Marie Presley, and Julian Lennon. But sometimes they do a pretty awesome job. Just like Goldie Hawn’s daughter Kate Hudson, the multi-talented Smith kids Jayden and Willow, Donald Sutherland’s badass boy Kiefer, Kirk Douglas‘ slightly less bad-ass boy Michael, and Judy Garland’s triple-threat daughter Liza Minelli.
Folks are really trying to make that “Rita Whora” nickname stick! The dust has barely settled from Rob Kardashian’s Twitter tirade against ex-girlfriend Rita Ora and now the singer is facing more unkind accusations. British reality show star Holly Hagan of Geordie Shore is making claims that Rita had an affair with her Roc Nation mentor Jay-Z. “I’ve been told to say that Rita ora has been ALLEGEDLY bukin jay z! I repeat ALLEDGELY [sic],” she wrote to her Twitter on Wednesday. “Apparently beyonce is denying claims… But if I gt cheated on I’d also deny it #embarrassin.”
The posts have (naturally) since been deleted, but it hasn’t stopped the white-hot fallout from Ora herself. “I stayed silent on one bulls–t rumour but this one I have to speak,” she responded in followup tweets that also have since been deleted. “Neva eva will any1 includin a red head dum z listin attention seekin whore try talk s–t about me& my family holly wateva da f-k ur name is.” It took us a minute to decode all that, but we gather that she seems pretty pissed.
We don’t know if anyone knows the answer to this but why exactly did people dance before they knew about Beyonce‘s Super Bowl contest? What was the point exactly? We remember learning the Macarena in sixth grade, and that was over a decade before we even knew Beyonce would perform at the Super Bowl! We only ask because Pepsi announced today that 50 fans would be picked to accompany Bey onstage this February 3 for her Bowl performance. There must have been some deep, primordial knowledge guiding our ancestors’ feet, because obviously the history of human dance has been leading up to this one opportunity. We knew there had to be a reasonable explanation for why we’re still forced to do the Electric Slide at weddings…
According to the contest rules, fans should summit photos of themselves dancing by January 11; 100 photos will appear in a new Bey-centric Pepsi commercial, and 50 will actually appear with Beyonce in meat space. We’re assuming they must pick the 50 coolest dance moves when deciding who gets to go to New Orleans, so one else do the Robot! Especially the move where you make your arm swing back and forth like it’s on a broken hinge. That one is ours.

As with most baby pics, there’s not much we can add to the latest photo of Blue Ivy Carter that Beyonce posted on her Tumblr this week. We’ll just say, “Thank you” to the proud mama, for sharing more cuteness — even if she never shows us little Blue’s face, and even though she and Jay-Z went to Bergdorf’s on Christmas Eve and forgot to buy us anything.
Anyway, we thought we’d take this opportunity to remind you once more why Blue is our #7 Celebrity Who Dominated in 2012 with this gallery of the few times we’ve caught a glimpse of the little star:

Throughout the year we try our very best to bring you the sexiest celebrity pics that the internet has to offer. But with today being Christmas and all, we knew that we really had to step up our game and go even better to give you the gift of glam. That’s why we’ve painstakingly scoured the web to track down the 50 hottest Twitpics and Instagrams of the entire year! Don’t worry, we weren’t doing anything today anyhow. 2012 has been a great time for social media savvy celebs, as more and more stars can’t resist the chance to give their fans a little sneak peek into their lives (and dressing rooms). All your favorites are in here, from Pop Queens like Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Beyonce, to Booty Queens like Coco, Kim Kardashian, Angela Simmons and Adrianne Curry. If there’s a famous person that you want to see with very minimal clothes, well then you’re in luck dear friend! Have another bite of figgy pudding and head down to the gallery below. Merry Christmas and happy new year, folks!
It’s not easy to pull off red felt and white fur, but there are a few lucky celebrities out there that manage to look hot in it regardless! Yes, it’s Christmas yet again, the time of the year where we prepare for a large bearded man to break into our homes as we sleep. Wouldn’t it be so much cooler if, for example, Katy Perry were to come down our chimney instead? Or Beyonce?! When famous folks dress up as Santa Claus, it provides a really interesting/weird alternate reality holiday. Or the beginning of a festive porno, depending on how you look at it. Head on down to the gallery below to see 30 Santa’s whose laps you definitely wouldn’t mind sitting on! From Victoria’s Secret Angels like Gisele Bundchen, Heidi Klum and Barbara Palvin, to divas like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey. So step right up and check out the gallery of the ho-ho-hottest Santas around! It’s not only sexy, it’s tradition!

Was there ever a more highly anticipated baby than the offspring of Beyonce and Jay-Z? Well, maybe. But it sure was fun following the story of Miss Blue Ivy Carter, from Mama Bey’s mimed announcement at the 2011 VMAs to all the rumors that she’d be giving birth on New Year’s Eve, to the stories of the lavish gifts the pop/hip-hop/fashion-diva-to-be received from the likes of Oprah and Kelly Rowland. We’ve yet to see much more of the precious one other than the back of her head, and yet we already love every inch of it.
Dominating Moment: Perhaps it was being born? Lil Blue was born on January 7th at New York City’s Lenox Hill Hospital. Did she have her own private wing? Of course she did. She soon charted on Billboard, featured in her dad’s ode “Glory.” Now ask yourself what you’ve done lately.
Dominating on Twitter: Baby Blue can’t quite tweet yet, although many a Trending Topic has been assigned to her name. There are, however, quite a few parody Blue Ivys, and perhaps Blue is a Twitter late starter like her mom, whose account just tweeted for the first time in April, with already over 5 million followers.
Best Appearances: No word on what Blue’s first word was (or might be?) but as soon as she’s ready to give comment to Us Weekly, I bet we’ll be seeing cover story placement. Meanwhile, Blue’s been seen out on the town with her mom, dad and Auntie Solange.
What We Expect From Her in 2013: Blue Ivy turns 1 in January, and you bet it’ll be the best first birthday anyone’s ever seen.

Rihanna has revealed all on Twitter, and for once, we don’t mean that she got naked. The “Diamonds” singer took a page from the Beyonce playbook and posted a heartfelt handwritten letter to her 27 million social media followers last night. Can we get a handwriting expert in here to sweep for Chris Brown clues?
Cutting through her relationship drama, the message served as a thank you to all the people who helped make her latest album Unapologetic her very first number one. “We continue down this road together, strong, united, Uncensored and fearless,” the note begins. Thankfully her handwriting is way better than ours. “There’s no question that life will throw us curve balls, we do our best to deal with them, take the lesson and keep it moving without regret!” Is it weird that we even find her handwriting attractive? What does that say about us? Is that a thing?

Are you the sort of person who scrolls down to see what shoes celebrities are wearing when you see an outfit that interests you? Then this is the list for you. Even if you aren’t a shoe fanatic, this is still a fun exercise, to be honest. We’ve compiled together our list of the top 25 most drool-worthy heels, platforms and boots spotted on celebrities in 2012. And to make it even more interesting, when you visit the gallery below, we’ve put pictures of the shoes first, with the celebrity reveal right after, so you can have a go at guessing who the gorgeous heel, platform, pump, bootie or boot belongs to! The caption on each celebrity reveal will also tell you what brand the shoe is and where and when it was worn. All our favourite celebrities are in there: Beyonce, Kristen Stewart, Emma Stone and a whole host more.
A couple of spoilers, though. We won’t tell you the color of the shoes so you can still have a guess when you look through the pictures. We adore Mila Kunis‘ Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ and Miley Cyrus‘ Jimmy Choo ‘Tippi” pumps, respectively. Bella Thorne‘s Miu Miu platform booties are to die for, as are Rooney Mara‘s YSL ‘Tribtoo’ slingbacks. Have a blast figuring out which is which. We wish you a happy and well-heeled rest of 2012!

Maybe we just have baby bumps on the brain (OK, we definitely do), but after
