Face it, when we’re young, we sometimes make some decisions don’t bode well in the long run. And quite a few celebrities have learned that the hard way, opting to remove some of the tattoos they once thought were so cool.
The art of the celeb side hustle is nothing new. Since the dawn of man, financially-savvy entertainers have been exploring business options outside of movies, albums and TV shows — to varying degrees of success, of course (anyone remember Fashion Cafe? Or Nyla?). Not only is it always a smart idea to diversify their portfolio, the businesses give them something to fall back on when the box office and record sales start to plummet. Of course, the usual A-list side endeavors include starting restaurants, backing clothing lines or, in Ashton Kutcher’s case, putting star muscle behind smartly conceived tech startups. Recently, Jay Z., in all his big-baller glory, has set the bar by buying sports teams and launching a sports agenting company.
What’s more popular than haute-couture on the red carpet? The skinny arm! Yes, the classic 90-degree hand-on-hip pose was popularized forever-ago by the showbiz elite, and has since been adopted by pretty much anyone who has a Facebook or Instagram.
Some actors, athletes and musicians have longevity — their talent and fame will have them in the public eye until long after they’re 6 feet under. Others, well, if they didn’t plan ahead when they made it big, they kinda need to find new ways to pay the bills. We’ve already visited the political options available to stars, but there are other great career paths too.
Almost every celebrity has the same complaint about being famous: they don’t want to share their personal life. If that’s so, then why do so many of them hold hands, lock lips and get just about down and dirty in public? The 20 celebrity couples on our list are all PDA offenders of various levels. Not that we mind, of course…
There’s a new trend sweeping the social media stream, and it’s called the hot-dog leg selfie! OK, it’s not exactly a new phenomenon to take a shot of your own bare legs jutting in front of you while kickin’ it at the beach or by a pool, but they’re definitely on the upswing thanks to the hilarious (and hilariously accurate) new Tumblr that gives the pose it’s name.
It seemed that this was the weekend that spring truly sprung, at least here in the northeast. Folks of every kind stripped off their North Faces and enjoyed the sun in its full glory, and it looks like celebrities were doing the same thing! Except, they did it better, as celebrities often do. Mega-hotties Rihanna, Jessica Alba and LeAnn Rimes were all spotted gettin’ down in their two pieces by the water.
Earlier this week, we told you about how Miley Cyrus referred to her boyfriend/fiance/superstud Liam Hemsworth as her “hubby” in an interview with Cosmopolitan. The quote sparked an untold number of rumors suggestion that the power-couple have already tied the knot without us catching on. Well, it turns out we missed a crucial part of the interview: She actually straight up said she was married, y’all! “I’m happy I don’t have to date anyone,” she said within the pages. And later on while telling an anecdote she dropped another glaring hint nugget: “‘I’m so happy I’m married, because you guys are so cruel!’”
OK, so she might have just taken a conversational short cut, and what she meant to say was “I’m so happy that I’m about to get married in the very near future.” But that’s kind of a mouthful, no? A rep for Hemsworth strenuously denied the wedding bell buzz to People, saying that they are “definitely NOT married.”
But hey, reps deny stuff all the time. And it doesn’t explain those Twitpics from Christmas that showed Miley and Liam wearing matching rings. And it really doesn’t explain why those same photos mysteriously vanished soon after being posted! Did Miley and Liam get married in secret? It wouldn’t be the first time in Hollywood history. Head on down to the gallery below and see 20 other famous couples who got hitched on the super DL!

We’ve been seeing a lot of black lace popping up on celebrities over at the West Coast all week. And to our delight, none of them have made the fabric seem Morticia Adams at all. Do we smell a trend? It started with Jessica Alba at the Producer’s Guild Awards during the weekend at the Beverly Hilton wearing a sexy Elie Saab Fall 2012 Couture gown. Snazzy color was provided through her purple Roger Vivier clutch, her mint green nails and her pink lipstick. We were also thrilled to see Catherine Zeta-Jones take on a black lace sheath with a fringed hemline, by Emilio Pucci from the Fall 2011 collection. CZJ wore the sexy outfit for a stint on the Tonight Show With Jay Leno in Burbank, California, day before yesterday. Next up, we have the Aussie stunner Teresa Palmer wearing a sweeping, dramatic black lace gown by Philip Armstrong, which plunged down the front. She wore it to the premiere of Warm Bodies yesterday in Hollywood, and styled it up with a silver Judith Leiber clutch and heavy-duty Jacob & Co. diamond stud earrings and bracelet. Lastly, we have the lovely Hannah Simone at co-star Zooey Deschanel‘s Glamour Cover Girl bash in West Hollywood, California, wearing an elegant black lace, cap-sleeve dress from Theia’s Fall 2012 collection. Now do you see why we sense a trend? Comment on your favorite look!

It’s pretty hard to look away from the (sexy!) men at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and let’s face it, we don’t even want to! But here at VH1, we believe in equal opportunity, and it’s time for the lovely ladies of Sundance to take center stage.
From Amanda Seyfried and Evan Rachel Wood, to Shailene Woodley and Elizabeth Olsen, Hollywood’s female royalty were out in full force, and the fashion theme among the starlets’ – old favorites and newcomers alike - was simple: keep warm! Sweaters and fleeces, long-sleeves and jackets, even cute hats and scarves were all the rage among the ladies in chilly Utah. Except of course for Jessica Alba or Dakota Fanning, who both opted for sleeveless dresses. Risky, ladies! Cute – but risky! Either way, the women of Sundance proved once and for all that beauty doesn’t fall by the way side when the cold comes creeping in. Head down to the gallery below for more!
