  • Nicki Minaj Totally Should Have Played Maleficent
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 17, 2014
    Instagram/nickiminaj We already know that Nicki Minaj has some of the greatest fans in the world, and now we know that they are some of the most artistic people as well. Nicki shared some fan art on her Instagram page recently, and we're starting to think she totally should have played Maleficent: We're definitely scared. And a little bit turned on. Not sure how that happened. So, what's the verdict? Could Nicki pull off a better Maleficent than Angelina Jolie? Probably not. But maybe this will inspire her next music video, which would be incredibly dope. Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //
  • Kourtney Kardashian Basically Made Out With A Prison Inmate
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 17, 2014
    Instagram/kourtneykardash Kourtney Kardashian will soon be a mother of three. From what we've seen on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, she's loving, doting, and she tries to buy her children non-toxic play things. But once upon a time, she was just a young girl making out with future prison inmates. Sort of. E! Jackie Cruz plays Marisol "Flaca" Gonzales on the hit Netflix series Orange Is The New Black. But before she was rocking her prison uniform, she rocked a hot two-piece and made out with Kourtney on an episode of  Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami.  Kourtney and Jackie still text (just as friends!) occasionally, but we're assuming that the make-out session part of their friendship is over. All good, make out-related things must come to an end. Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //

    By: Shannon Houston Jun 17, 2014
    Instagram/thenewclassic Men (and women) all over the world may be obsessing over Iggy Azalea's body (and backside), but "The New Classic" only has eyes for one pop star's booty. She shared this photo on her Instagram account after she and Jennifer Lopez performed together in Chicago: Iggy write, "she is my obsession #LurkLife #Sorry#MYbootyCrush." And who could blame her? JLo also shared a photo from their big night together: These two make a pretty hot pair! And now that they've collaborated on "Acting Like That," maybe we'll get an epic, booty-filled video soon.

  • Kendall Jenner Showed Way Too Much Skin At The Much Music Video Awards
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 16, 2014
    Instagram/kendalljenner Kendall Jenner makes a great point about the show-stopping Fausto Puglisi dress she wore to the 2014 Much Music Video Awards: " why do one slit when you can do TWO!? #MMVAs" Indeed, Kendall. Indeed: That's a whole lot of pelvic bone, though it needs to be said that the dress is stunning. Is this gown a little too sexy for young Kendall? Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //
  • Ciara Shares The First Photo Of Her Baby Future, And He's Very Fancy
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 15, 2014
    Instagram  We've been getting little peeks at Ciara's newborn baby since his birth a few weeks back, and today she reveals the baby behind all those shoes. Here's our first official look at Future Zahir: She also shared one other photo for Father's Day with the following caption: "From The Moment Baby Future Arrived, He Was Holding Your Hand So Tight, He Knew You Were Dad. Seeing That Melted My Heart... When I Look At Him, I See You Shining Through, And That's One Of The Most Beautiful Things Ever! You Are Truly One Of The Realist, Most Caring, Hard Working, Loving Dads In The World, and I'm So Proud Of You.I Love You. Happy Fathers Day @Future." Well, he's got some stiff competition in North West, but this may very well be the fanciest baby on the planet. All that leather? And it's probably Givenchy? It's nice to meet Mr. Baby Future. We're assuming he takes a little caviar with his bottles. Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //

    By: Shannon Houston Jun 13, 2014
    Instagram/beyonce As Beyoncé gears up for her On The Run tour with hubby Jay Z, she's been taking to Instagram to share new photos that appear to be from her rehearsals. One photo received a host of comments—accusations, even—because of the particular pose the Queen Bey struck. Exhibit A: Exhibit B: Many of Bey's fans are jumping to her defense, but there's definitely a similar look here. Did Beyoncé steal this memorable pose from Ciara's Promise video?

  • Will Kim Kardashian's New Wedding Photo Break Instagram Records Too?
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 13, 2014
    WENN/C.Smith Kim Kardashian currently holds the record for the most "liked" Instagram photo of all time. That picture of her sharing her first kiss with new husband Kanye West sent the internet into a frenzy, but this new photo is a winner too. After weeks and weeks of specualtion, Kim finally revealed this photo of baby North West in her Givenchy dress at the wedding: The blushing bride captioned the photo with, "My everything." Right now the photo has over 1.3 million "likes." The famous wedding photo has 2.8 million, so there's quite a ways to go. But those super-mushy baby cheeks deserve all the "likes" in the world. Seriously. All of them. Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //
  • Lana Del Rey Wishes She Were Dead
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 13, 2014
    Getty Images/Taylor Hill Lana Del Rey is speaking very candidly about her death wish in a new interview with The Guardian. Here is the opening from the interview: “I wish I was dead already,” Lana Del Rey says, catching me off guard. She has been talking about the heroes she and her boyfriend share – Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain among them – when I point out that what links them is death and ask if she sees an early death as glamorous. “I don’t know. Ummm, yeah.” And then the death wish. Don’t say that, I say instinctively. “But I do.” You don’t! “I do! I don’t want to have to keep doing this. But I am.” Do what? Make music? “Everything. That’s just how I feel. If it wasn’t that way, then I wouldn’t say it. I would be scared if I knew [death] was coming, but …” For some people, tragic LDR works perfectly for her music, but in real life it's a bit much. It's one thing to idolize the dead. It's another to want to emulate them in their postmortem state. And yet, if you're a fan of Lana's, this whole statement isn't very surprising. It could also be argued that she's speaking from a state of depression, which brings up an entirely different set of issues. You can read the full interview here. Lana goes on to talk about more dark subject matter, and reaffirms her status as a non-feminist. Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //
  • Why Oprah Winfrey's Next Role Is Even Bigger Than 'God'
    By: Shannon Houston Jun 11, 2014
    WENN/Brian To We recently learned that Oprah Winfrey will be taking on the role of God in an adaptation of the novel The Shack. While this is truly an exciting and important role for Winfrey (and for a culture that has no popular images of black women deities), her next role may be even bigger than her 'God' character. Ava DuVernay's Selma will bring us the story of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s landmark 1965 voting rights campaign, and Winfrey (who is also a producer of the film, along with Brad Pitt and Lee Daniels) will play Annie Lee Cooper. What makes this role bigger than 'God'? Well, DuVernay and Winfrey are introducing to the big screen a new, previously untold story. Cooper became a civil rights legend when she fought back against a vicious police officer trying to block her from exercising her right to vote. While names like Rosa Parks, and Martin Luther King, Jr., and—yes, even God— have been given plenty of screen time over the years, names like Annie Lee Cooper's have not. Winfrey taking on this role means that she is giving more visibility to lesser-known American heroes, and the importance of this cannot be measured. Winfrey told Entertainment Tonight that the late Maya Angelou had given her blessing on this role before she passed: "She was so proud that I was doing this movie. And she said, 'Take it baby.  Take it all the way. Take it all the way,'" Oprah said about talking with Maya about the movie. "She was a part of the movement, worked with Martin Luther King, understood what we were trying to do with this film." Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //

    By: Shannon Houston Jun 11, 2014
    Instagram/ciara Ciara's newborn baby is already living the fabulous life, and there's nothing anyone can do to stop it. Not only does Future Jr. have more shoes than any newborn probably should, but his couture collection is already underway. Ciara shared a sweet note card from Riccardo Tisci, the Creative Director of Givenchy. She captioned the photo with this: @riccardotisci17 Thank You For The Sweet Words and Gifts for Future Jr. #Givenchy#MyFamily #Love We know another celebrity baby who likes to rock Givenchy. Looks like North West and Future Jr. will be winning those Best Dressed awards all the fancy preschools are totally giving out these days: Welp, Baby Gap isn't good enough for everyone!
