One of the best/worst things about celebrity culture is living vicariously through their glamorous lifestyles. Fancy wedding dresses and secret nuptials are nice, but when the ladies sport engagement rings the size of a bowling ball, everything goes out the window (because that’s all we’re looking at anyway).

Without a doubt, 2014 was TMZ‘s year. The former celebrity rag has been working hard to become a reputable source of news, and has stepped up its game to provide some of the year’s most thoroughly reported celebrity stories. Read more…
Their parents spent 2014 running the world, but don’t think that stopped these tiny tots from doing the same. Blue Ivy Carter and North West were obviously the most influential celebrity babies of the last year, but the question remains: Who is the queen?

Halloween is almost here, and it’s definitely not just for kids anymore! These days it’s less about the mini candy bars and more about the seriously hot mini outfits. October 31st has become the unofficial the last gasp of bikini season, the final strip-off before winter sets in and everyone turns into Slanket mummies for 6 months. But for now, the goal is to be the most creative with the least amount of clothing. And no one does that better than Hollywood A-listers! These stars have brought us some truly awesome costumes over the years. Who could forget Kim Kardashian as Jasmine, Mariah Carey as a scantily clad bride(?) and Snooki as…the Queen of the Pickles? We think? Okay, we’ll be honest: we don’t know what a lot of these outfits are supposed to be. But that’s the magic of Halloween: We don’t have to! It’s the one night of the year where it’s not skanky, it’s a costume! Tons of stars and starlets have stripped down to celebrate over the years, so we’ve assembled the 75(!) most scarily sexy costumes of all time. Just think of it as a big basket of fun-sized Snickers on a doorstep and a sign that says “Help Yourself.” Dive in!

This royal wedding business is getting out of hand, in our opinion, but if there’s one thing we’ve learned about Prince William and Kate Middleton, it’s that they seem like pretty fun, typical young people. (The Royals: Just Like Us!) First of all, perhaps you’ll remember when Prince Harry wanted Snoop Dogg to perform at his brother’s bachelor party. That kinda surprised us, but at the same time, if you can afford to have Snoop at your bachelor party, why not?
And now the word is that William and Kate want Jay-Z and Beyonce to perform “Crazy In Love” at the royal wedding reception. A source says “They really wanted to make their big day even more special and what better way than by getting pop royalty to perform at the party? … They both wanted to ditch traditions and make it more personal for them. Jay-Z and Beyoncé are both in Europe at the moment while she promotes her new single ‘Girls Who Run The World.’ So it’s highly likely they have taken up the Royals’ offer.” Among other celebs on the Royal wedding guest list are Guy Ritchie, Joss Stone, Elton John, and the Beckhams. Since the royal family has announced that they’ll be broadcasting the wedding on YouTube, maybe we’ll get a glimpse of the Beyonce performance if it really happens.

We never thought we’d say this, but it looks like Beyoncé is taking over for Drew Barrymore as the queen of the indie scene. Last year, Barrymore was the hit of Bonnaroo, swaying in the wind in tribal facepaint at the outdoor music fest in Tennessee. This year, it was Beyoncé who was grooving in the VIP section as she watched acts like hubby Jay-Z, The National, Dead Weather and banjo player extraordinaire Steve Martin.
Check out our gallery of performers, which include an eclectic mix of unkempt indie rock hipsters, famous redhead comedians, and rock legends (Daryl Hall, we’re looking at you!).
