Amanda Bynes debuted new purple hair over the weekend, but bystanders couldn’t overlook her odd behavior. Does the the hairdo signal that Bynes is still struggling with mental illness?
Now that the VH1 Pop Queen Faceoff is well underway, let’s take some time to draw attention to your favorite divas on the silver screen. We’re putting the spotlight on the various film debuts of some of these stars like Beyoncé, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga. From The Smurfs to Burlesque, these movies featured the multi-talented singers who had the guts to try their hand at acting. Remember when Whitney Houston sang “I Will Always Love You” in The Bodyguard? Did you catch Taylor Swift playing a high school sweetheart in Valentine’s Day?
Brad Pitt is focusing on family, a fellow celebrity wants Kate Middleton to model her lingerie line, Derek Jeter played the last game of his career, and more of today’s First Dibs.
If there’s one place sex is rampant, it’s Hollywood. We hear tales of celebrity hookups every day, but we don’t often hear about stars who’ve abstained from sex. Which celebs have been celibate at some point in their lives?
When it comes to music, these girls have it all. They can sing. They can dance. And they can act — err, wait a minute on the last one.

We’ve all had our rough patches. We don’t know a single person who hasn’t had a minor meltdown, a hissy fit, or even a mild psychotic break (everyone has That Cousin). But when A-list celebrities freak-out, they’re just so extra with it. They take it to a whole new level, make it theatrical. If it’s a really good meltdown, it could even look like performance art.

The ’90s were sort of weird. Everyone’s clothes were too big for them, and there was a lot of sincerity going around. It was also a time when some of today’s biggest stars weren’t such big stars yet, and randomly appeared on some of your favorite TV shows.
