    This Is What It Looks Like When Jennifer Lawrence Gets Mad

    With a single finger, Jennifer Lawrence let her true feelings for the paparazzi be known.

    The "Hunger Games" star stepped out for dinner with Tom Ford and boyfriend Nicholas Hoult at the Chilton Firehouse in London on Thursday night, April 24. Afterwards, photographers surrounded them as they made their way from the restaurant into a waiting cab.

    Lawrence was having none of it and flipped the paparazzi the middle finger from the backseat of the cab as it pulled away. Hoult seemingly attempted to get her to put her hand down, but Lawrence's message was loud and clear.

    Roberto Cavalli Hits Miami Beach With His Much Younger Girlfriend

    Bikini season is fast approaching, but Roberto Cavalli and his much younger girlfriend have been getting a jump on summer, evidently working on their tans.

    Photographers snapped photos on April 23 as the 73-year-old fashion designer enjoyed the sun and sand with 20-something model girlfriend Lina Nilson. The couple have been together for quite some time, and are comfortable enough with each other that Nilson had no issues hosing Cavalli down last summer while spending time on his luxury yacht.

    Renee Zellweger Goes Incognito In Santa Monica Photo

    Renee Zellweger, that you, girl? The 44-year-old actress went super casual while dining with her parents Emil and Kjellfrid Zellweger in Santa Monica, Calif., on Thursday (Dec. 26). (The half-up, half-down hairdo is an apparent fave, judging from the same hairstyle Zellweger wore back in November).

    Zellweger has remained relatively out of the spotlight since starring in 2010's "My Own Love Song," though fans of the actress have been putting up her name for bid ever since Helen Fielding released a third Bridget Jones book, "Mad About A Boy," in October.

    Meanwhile, Zellweger has been spotted hitting town with her new beau, guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, whom she has been dating since at least last December.

    Rashida Jones Calls Out Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj for "Pornification of Pop"



    Following her "stop acting like wh*res" Twitter rant, the Parks & Recreation star has penned an essay for Glamour detailing her frustrations with the "pornification of pop" these days, singling out the likes of Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj for saturating mainstream music with graphic sexual imagery.

    "This fall I was hanging out with my sisters, catching up on pop-culture stuff. We watched some music videos, looked at a few Instagram accounts, and checked out blogs. And amid the usual duck-lipped selfies and staged paparazzi photos, a theme emerged: Stripper poles, G-strings, boobs, and a lot of tongue action were all now normal accessories for mainstream pop stars," she writes. "That was at the end of October, a month that had already brought us the Miley Cyrus cross-continental twerk-a-thon and Nicki Minaj's Halloween pasties."

    "With the addition of Rihanna writhing on a pole in her 'Pour It Up' video, and Lady Gaga's butt-crack cover art for the song that goes 'Do what you want with my body,' I was just done. I'd had enough."
    Adding that she's "not a prude" and "grew up on a healthy balance of sexuality in pop stars," Jones explains that sexy doesn't mean "having to take an ultrasound tour of some pop star's privates."

    "Yes, we had Madonna testing the boundaries of appropriateness, but then we also had Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, and Cyndi Lauper, women who played with sexuality but didn't make it their calling card," she continues. "Twenty years later, all the images seem homogenous. Every star interprets "sexy" the same way: lots of skin, lots of licking of teeth, lots of bending over. I find this oddly...boring."

    The actress also explains her use of the word "wh*re" in her previous rant, writing, "The fact that I was accused of 'slut-shaming,' being anti-woman, and judging women's sex lives crushed me. I consider myself a feminist. I would never point a finger at a woman for her actual sexual behavior, and I think all women have the right to express their desires. But I will look at women with influence—millionaire women who use their 'sexiness' to make money—and ask some questions. There is a difference, a key one, between 'shaming' and 'holding someone accountable.'"

    Jen Arnold, TLC's 'Little Couple' Star, Reveals She Is Battling Cancer

    Jen Arnold, the star of TLC's "The Little Couple," has revealed she is battling a rare form of cancer.

    "I have recently been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer and am currently undergoing treatment, including surgery and chemotherapy," Arnold, 39, said in a statement emailed to The Huffington Post. "I am very fortunate as the prognosis is good. While there is never a good time to get news like this, getting it just as we are building our new family is tough in many ways. ... But being surrounded by the love of my husband and our two beautiful children is actually in many ways giving me the strength to fight it even stronger."

    The neonatologist and her husband, Bill Klein, have had their lives documented on TLC since the show premiered in 2009. The series has followed them living with skeletal dysplasia, settling down in Texas and trying to have a child. They now have two adopted children: Will, 3, and Zoey, 2.

    TLC cameras will also capture Arnold's fight against cancer, according to People.

    In October, Klein and Arnold told Glamour they would drop the series if it ever got "too cumbersome," but so far they have been able to manage their schedules. They've also gotten great joys out of doing the show, particularly when they've been able to share personal struggles with viewers.

    "The biggest joy from the show is those moments where somebody sends a message or tells us that the show has helped them in some personal way, whether it’s going through the physical challenges or the medical challenges of being little people or the fertility changes and adoption challenges of starting a family," she said. "They share their own personal challenges and the fact that watching the show helps them keep moving forward, honestly that’s what makes the show worthwhile. It’s a really cool thing and makes me feel happy and proud when that happens."

    Carrie Underwood to Her 'Sound of Music Live!' Haters: "Mean People Need Jesus"



    In fact, she’s sending out positive thoughts to those who’ve openly criticized her Sound of Music Live! performance.

    “Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus,” she wrote on Twitter. “They will be in my prayers tonight…”

    She even cited a Bible verse for the naysayers to study -- Peter 2:1-25, to be exact, which reads: “So rid yourselves of all wickedness, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all slander.”

    Underwood very well may be directing those prayers to 55-year-old actress Kym Karath, who played Gretl von Trapp in the much-beloved 1965 movie musical, who wasn’t quite taken with the country pop star in the lead role of Maria von Trapp in NBC’s three-hour live performance Dec. 5.

    And she didn’t hold back her disappointment.

    “Mystified & disappointed so far by SOM special. So far only happy with Stephen Moyer,” tweeted Karath, who watched the special alongside her former on-screen siblings Charmian Carr (Liesl von Trapp) and Angela Cartwright (Brigitta von Trapp.)

    (Karath with Chariman Carr. Photo: Twitter)

    “Love Carrie Underwood but this role is just not right for her,” she said, adding that some scenes were “painful to watch.” “She is lovely her voice is beautiful but acting is wrong.”

    But she tried to soften the blow: “To be clear I love Carrie Underwood. Just not as Maria,” Karath continued. “She was brave to take it on. And this doesn't lessen my respect for her talent.”

    Even the TV critics’ reviews weren’t as scathing, most praising her unbelievable vocal talents, yet pointing out her acting chops just weren’t quite there.

    But like a true performer, the only review that mattered to the 30-year-old superstar was her own:

    Stunning Nude Photo Series Challenges What It Means To Be 'Attractive'

    What is "attractiveness"? Artist Gracie Hagen devised one way of addressing the question. In an effort to explore distance between media-propagated imagery -- the ones that star photoshopped men and women with impossibly pristine bodies -- and the genuine reality of our own flesh, she embarked on a project titled "Illusions of the Body."

    Recruiting mostly women and a few men of various sizes and shapes, Hagen photographed her models in two separate poses. In the first frame, her subjects stand in conventionally sexy positions, usually accentuating the curves they themselves deem acceptable while covering up the "unattractive" sections they wish to hide. In the second frame, the same models were asked to strike an unflattering pose; to let their bodies fall into postures we don't usually see in the glossy pages of magazines, regardless of how unsexy it might seem.

    "'Illusions of the Body' was made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like," Hagen pointed out in an email exchange with The Huffington Post. "Most of us realize that the media displays only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering."

    The result of Hagen's experiment is a striking collection of visual contradictions. The male and female bodies on display go from one extreme to another, showing just how malleable our forms can be, while challenging the rigid beauty ideals we've constructed at the same time.

    "The media shows us the most attractive photos of people," Hagen explained. "Don't compare yourselves to those images. They aren't realistic. Everyone is a different shape and size. There is no 'normal.' Celebrate your shapes, sizes and the odd contortions your body can get itself into. The human body is a weird and beautiful thing."

    Buxom blonde Helen Flanagan returns to the I'm A Celebrity jungle one year on... as she flaunts her body in a bikini

    Former Coronation Street babe Helen Flanagan has returned to the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! jungle one year after she was a contestant.

    The buxom blonde went on the ITV2 spin-off show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Now! and was seen stroking a crocodile that lay on Roving Reporter Joe Swash’s chest.

    The actress rose to a new level of fame after her stint in the Australian jungle last year, but seemed keen to get back to under the canopy this series to support the current contestants.

    With her hair in angelic pigtails, the busty actress showed off her cleavage in a pink and black bikini.

    Her red lipstick accentuated her plump lips, but, as ever, the star’s fake tan let down her look.

    Although she had streaky hands, the actress did look like she’d picked up a golden glow during her time in Australia.

    Standing to one side, waiting for her cue, Helen was spotted filing her nails. 

    The actress allegedly said that she would not be interested in dating Joey Essex as he is too 'thick' to be her boyfriend. Although charming Joey has proved to be popular with the ladies, the ex-Coronation Street actress, who is famous for her ditzy remarks, has reportedly said she was prefer a 'smarter man'. According to The Sun, the 23-year-old said the TOWIE star was 'too thick' to be her boyfriend and added: 'Opposites attract so I wouldn't go for Joey.' Helen, who came seventh in the last series and faced a torrent of public abuse after being mocked as the ultimate airhead, has stuck up for beauty queen Amy Willerton after contestants have been critical of her.

    Sharon Stone Stuns In Floor-Length Gown At Marrakesh International Film Festival

    Sharon Stone is one seriously foxy lady. The 55-year-old wowed in a black floor-length gown at the opening ceremony of the 13th Marrakesh International Film Festival in Morocco yesterday (Nov. 29) where director Martin Scorsese presented her with an award.

    "What is the definition of stardom, not fame, but true stardom?" Scorsese asked the audience, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "Sharon is brilliant, extremely talented, fearless, charming, funny and absolutely wild, and she's a true star. When she walks in a room the energy changes," he said.

    Selena Gomez Wears Red Leather Bodysuit At Thanksgiving Day Halftime Show

    Selena Gomez halftime show performance reviews have been mixed. This particular Selena Gomez halftime show took place on Thanksgiving Day during the Dallas Cowboys game. During the performance she wore a red leather bodysuit that a lot of people have been talking about on Friday (Nov. 29). Some of those comments on a Huffington Post article have been very flattering, but others have used their anonymity to attack her singing.

    One person using the username "Mike_Mcdougall" stated, "Her lip synch was hilariously obvious. No live performance is that crystal clear." Another commenter under the username "spkmky" took their rudeness a step further as they stated, "Wow so young and already starting to become a chunky monkey." It's not too surprising that someone would make a comment like that anonymously and hide their identity from other people on the internet.

    It wasn't all negative, though, as many people have noted positive aspects of the performance. User "Tim_Osborne posted, "I wish that people would get off Selena's back.She is young,beautiful,stays classy unlike Miley Cyrus and rather you like her music or not which I don't she is still successful at it." Another person named "karen_wenzel" stated, "if I had a daughter, i'd want her to admire Selena G, instead of miley. At least Selena knows that being vulgar isn't a good thing, and this outfit is way better than anything miss m has done lately."

    The Selena Gomez halftime performance has definitely created a debate about the pop music princesses out there and which ones are doing things that they should be proud of partaking in. It's clear, though, that Gomez has the talent to keep selling records to her millions of fans.

    Sharon Osbourne Says Getting Her Vagina Tightened Was 'Excruciating,' Talks Ozzy's Relapse

    Sharon Osbourne is nothing if not an open book so it should come as no surprise she agreed to talk about her private lady parts on British television.

    Osbourne was a guest on BBC's "The Graham Norton Show" yesterday (Nov. 29) in an episode that is set to air Dec. 7, and when Norton complimented her about her looks, she revealed she had undergone numerous procedures to maintain her youthful appearance. Osbourne then admitted to getting her "vagina tightened," saying it "was the worst" and "just excruciating."

    Ozzy's flame-haired half also spoke about her husband's most recent relapse, moving out of their joint home, selling all of his cars and what eventually brought them back together.

    Brody Jenner Says He May Not Be Invited To Kim Kardashian And Kanye West's Wedding

    Well, this is awkward -- Brody Jenner isn't sure if he'll score an invitation to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding, because he wasn't invited to the engagement.

    We're not sure what happened to family coming first, but the 30-year-old, who officially joined the cast of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," revealed he doesn't know if he should expect an invitation to what's likely to be the hottest wedding of next year, even if his stepsister is the bride.

    "Well, you never know with the family. I didn't get invited to the engagement, so you never know," Jenner told Us Weekly when asked about the power couple's impending nuptials at the Hyde Nightclub at the Bellagio Hotel & Casino on Saturday (Nov. 23).

    We suppose the fact Jenner wasn't invited to Kardashian's big surprise proposal at AT&T Park in San Francisco last month shouldn't come as that much of a shock given that his father, and Kardashian's stepfather, Bruce Jenner, also wasn't invited when West got down on one knee, according to TMZ.

    Since Kardashian is reportedly still close with Bruce, despite the fact that he and her mother recently revealed that they have separated, we have to wonder if the decision to ice Brody out came from Kris Jenner herself, who Brody was never exactly fond of -- and never did his best to hide it, either.

    It's unclear what the state of Brody's relationship with Kardashian or West is, but let's take a moment to recall exactly who was at that proposal. According to "Girls Gone Wild" founder Joe Francis (who, yes, was very much a guest), there were about 40 people at the surprise engagement, including big names in the tech industry, Uber founder Marc Pincus, and YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley, whom the couple is now suing after he leaked a video of the engagement.

    Someone Actually Wanted To Own The 'Bound 2' Motorcycle

    By now you've probably witnessed the pop culture wonder that is Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's "Bound 2" music video. Well, one eager fan decided to do one better than keep hitting "play:" He actually bought the motorcycle Kim straddles Kanye on ... or at least that's what its seller on eBay claims.

    The post appears to have gone up yesterday (Nov. 26) and was sold shortly thereafter. The starting bid for it was 4,500 British pounds, or just over $7,300.

    In the description, its seller, eBay user carmiketimm, wrote:

        2010 registered Honda CRF250 used in the Kanye West Bound 2 Video.

        Kanye came to London in October 2013 to shoot the video with Nick Knight in the Park Royal Studios.

        When we delivered the bike we had no idea that Kanye and his bride Kim would be having sex on it.

        That said, the 2010 CRF is one of the world's most capable dirtbikes and can handle anything that's thrown at it.

        Prior to the shoot this bike completed 5 x 2 Welsh enduros and nearly 2 Weston beach races.

        We haven't cleaned the bike so winning bidder receives it as seen, with any marks or residues from the shoot included - possibly with some unicorn gold dust or whatever it is that Kanye shoots out of his magic penis.

    Tom Cruise Admits Katie Holmes Divorced Him To Protect Suri From Scientology

    Tom Cruise has admitted that Katie Holmes filed for divorce in part because of his involvement in the controversial Church of Scientology.

    During his deposition, first obtained by RadarOnline, for his $50 million defamation case against Bauer media (whose magazines claimed he abandoned his daughter Suri Cruise), the 51-year-old actor first exploded with anger when asked if Holmes left him "in part to protect Suri from Scientology."

    Cruise first responded that he found the question "offensive," saying, "there is no need to protect my daughter from my religion.” But when lawyers pushed the question again, asking if his ex-wife ever indicated that she left because of the religion or because she wanted to protect their daughter from Scientology, Cruise responded:

    "Did she say that? That was one of the assertions, yes."

    What's more, Cruise also admitted that his 7-year-old daughter is no longer a practicing member of the religion. This is a huge admission since anyone who leaves the faith is considered a “Suppressive Person” and is cut off from all members of the church, including their immediate family.
    When Holmes and Cruise divorced back in 2012, many of Scientology's defectors spoke out claiming that the church seemed to be playing favorites and bending rules when it came to Cruise and his family. Former Scientologist Samantha Domingo (whose ex-husband Placido Domingo Jr. spoke out and left the church after officials tried to make him "disconnect" from her when she was labeled a "Suppressive Person") told Vanity Fair that the way Holmes blindsided Cruise with the divorce and enrolled Suri in private school would be automatic grounds for disconnection if Holmes were married to any other Scientologist.

    Domingo said that even if Holmes left Cruise to protect her daughter from the church, he likely won't give up on bringing her back to the religion.

    "According to Scientology doctrine, Katie has denied Suri her spiritual eternity in the church. There's no chance for her now," Domingo explained to Vanity Fair. "Why would Katie deny their daughter her spiritual freedom? How suppressive is that? If [Tom] loves his daughter, he will never give up on [Scientology]. He will try to use every means available to help his child, and he does think he's helping his child, but he's also helping the church control his life."

    Danielle Fishel AKA Topanga Rocks A Bikini On Her Honeymoon In Hawaii

    Just days after taking down body bullies who dared to criticize her weight, actress Danielle Fishel looks more than confident rocking a bikini.

    Of course, those online bullies seemed to the farthest thing from the former "Boy Meets World" star's mind as photographers snapped photos of the actress and new husband Tim Belusko while on their honeymoon in Hawaii on Saturday.

    The 32-year-old, who is about to reprise her role as Topanga Lawrence on Disney's "Girl Meets World," married her boyfriend of nearly five years on Oct. 19, and though it was a joyous occasion for the couple, it prompted online haters to spew their venom, making comments about Fishel's weight and criticizing her for marrying someone so young.

    Fishel wouldn't hear any of it and hit back on Twitter, telling naysayers that her new husband is "mature, responsible, loving, & kind." And as for the comments about her weight, Fishel very poignantly had this to say:

    he looks pretty damn good. For being so dang short, she has obviously worked hard to keep her body in shape. It would be silly to call her fat, can you imagine how that would make people who are actually fat feel? To think that someone weighing 107 pounds is obese? That’s just insane.

    Anyway, hopefully the picture puts an end to some of the negative comments. If you find yourself about to make an insensitive comment, just stop yourself and think, “What Would Feeny Do?”

    Taylor Swift And Selena Gomez Pose As ... Mermaids?

    Taylor Swift made sure to wish her BFF Selena Gomez a happy birthday on July 22, posting a photo of the pair at what looks to be her Rhode Island home.

    The pals posed as mermaids -- well, technically they replicated a mermaid statue -- while sitting on the ledge of Swift's yard in Watch Hill.

    “I met [Swift] when she was 18. This is before [Swift's 2008 album] Fearless came out, and it was absolutely incredible to see someone so successful and so humble," Gomez told People earlier this year. "I think she has been a big part of me kind of staying the way I am too."

    Lindsay Lohan Urged To Extend Stay In Rehab, Advised Not To Live With Her Mother When Released

    Lindsay Lohan is reportedly ready to book it out of rehab once her court-ordered 90 day are up, despite being urged to extend her treatment for another 30 days.

    RadarOnline reports that the 27-year-old's treatment team at Cliffside Malibu has asked her to consider continuing her inpatient treatment because she's been making such good progress.

    Lohan, who is in rehab to avoid jail time after she pled no contest to reckless driving and lying to the police, began her 90-day stay at the Betty Ford Center in May, before moving to Cliffside in June.

    “The treatment team wants Lindsay to stay for at least another 30 days, because she didn’t do her entire 90 days at Cliffside. Someone with her addiction and psychiatric issues needs extensive treatment and 90 days just isn’t enough. She is in a really good place right now, but her doctors want that to continue," a source explained to the website.

    We have to wonder just how much progress Lohan has really made if she's intent on leaving treatment against the advice of her team.

    “Lindsay says she is required to be in Venice, Italy, at the beginning of August to attend the premiere of 'The Canyons,'” the source said. “She has assured the doctors that she will continue to go to AA/NA meetings and work the 12 steps."

    If Lohan decides to leave when her court-mandated time is up at the end of July, she's going to be living with her family at her mother's home in Long Island -- though she's also reportedly been advised not to live with her mother, Dina Lohan, upon release.

    Miley Cyrus Tweets 'Pretty Woman' Inspired Photo, Makes Us Worry A Little

    Either Miley Cyrus can't stop, or she's just having too much of a good time to take a breather. Either way, we think she might have gone a tad too far last night.

    Cyrus is down in Miami these days as part of the Miami Music Festival and since her new thing is wearing as little clothes in public as possible, she thought it'd be appropriate to channel Julia Roberts' "Pretty Woman" attire for a night on the town.

    That's right -- Julia Roberts' famous hooker dress from the iconic 1990 movie. Maybe Miley doesn't really know what kind of message she's sending since she was born a full two years after the movie came out?!

    Weirdly (or sadly, depending on how many 20-year-old kids you have at home), this isn't the first time Miley donned the skimpy "Pretty Woman" dress. For her 17th birthday, Cyrus dressed as Roberts' hooker character for an 80s party in New York, per the New York Post.

    We're just hoping the tall beverage in your hand is a virgin, Miley. Five more months until you're 21!

    Alec Baldwin Twitter Meltdown Comes After Journalist Accuses Wife Of Tweeting During Funeral

    Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria Baldwin attended the late "Sopranos" actor James Gandolfini's funeral Thursday morning, but while they were among mourners at the New York City church, Hilaria's Twitter account appeared to remain active. After a report from the UK's Daily Mail detailing as much, Baldwin launched a Twitter rant against the publication's writer who produced the piece -- and used several gay slurs in the process.

    During the funeral, tweets were sent from Hilaria's account asking followers for wedding anniversary ideas and retweeting @RachaelRayShow's updates about her Thursday morning appearance.

    A source close to Hilaria insists to The Huffington Post that she merely later retweeted updates that had been tweeted during the service and was not actively tweeting inside the church.

    Baldwin's publicist, Matthew Hiltzik, who says he still represents the actor, despite Baldwin having tweeted "I don't have a publicist anymore. I fired them," sent HuffPost the following statement:

    "It is disgraceful that this reporter manufactured a story and never called for comment or explanation -- especially when it needlessly diverted attention away from a day to honor the memory of a beloved figure like Mr Gandolfini."

    Below, a screenshot of Baldwin's now disabled Twitter account which displays his rant against reports that his pregnant wife was not fully present at the funeral.

    Steve Irwin's Daughter, Bindi, Victim Of Trending Online Death Hoax

    Steve Irwin's daughter, Bindi, was the latest celebrity victim of an online death hoax. This time, however, it wasn't some made-up, macabre story of a ski accident in Switzerland, but rather a rumor spawned from a jumbled Internet search term.

    E! News referred to the snafu as the "perfect search storm." Social News Daily boiled it down to a "trends hiccup."

    It all started Friday when word that Irwin's daughter had died began to spread on Twitter and became a popular term on various search engines, according to E! News. Hoax sleuths were able to link it all back to a glitch in Internet searches relating to the term "Steve Irwin daughter."

    Bindi has been making headlines for her new movie "Return to Nim’s Island," which premiered in March and was released on DVD May 21. As people searched for information on Irwin's daughter, search engines matched up the query with stories written about her following the September 2006 death of her father. The keywords combined, Social News Daily notes, to create one creepy trending term: "Steve Irwin's daughter dies."

    The 14-year-old is, of course, alive and well.

    On Thursday, Bindi tweeted a video of a trip to Hong Kong she took with her father. She also posted a photo to Instagram taken at a beach with the words "Unconditional Love" written in the sand.

    The precocious teen has been busy working on projects with the Discovery Channel and dedicating herself to environmentalism. In April, she visited Singapore to talk about her commitment to wildlife.

    “I’m a great believer in conservation, kid-empowerment and all things to do with wildlife," Bidni told Yahoo! Singapore. "So these programs are something that I’m really passionate and excited about. It’s very special – and what a unique position to be in, to be able to share your passion with such a wide audience. How nice is that?"
