Jennifer Aniston Opens Up About Not Having Kids

Friday, August 29th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — Jennifer Aniston and fiancé Justin Theroux aren’t worrying about whether they are going to have children.

“It’s not something that’s in our everyday life, quite honestly. It’s more questions that arise in a red carpet line or in an interview,” she told People magazine earlier this week.

She continued, “I just find it to be energy that is unnecessary and not really fair for those who may or may not [have children]. Who knows what the reason is, why people aren’t having kids. There’s a lot of reasons that could be, and maybe it’s something that no one wants to discuss.”

She added that whether she and her fiancé of two years have babies, it’s “everyone’s personal prerogative.”

Aniston, 45, this week also joined Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox on Jimmy Kimmel Live for a mini Friends reunion.

Beyonce Calls Blue Ivy ‘My Biggest Muse’

Friday, August 29th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Eric McCandless/CBS ©2013 CBS Broadcasting Inc. All Rights Reserved(LOS ANGELES) — Beyoncé rarely talks about her personal life.

In a new poem, however, she reflects on how her daughter has affected her life.

“It’s my daughter, she’s my biggest muse/There’s someone, we all find out soon/more important than ourselves to lose,” she wrote in a piece called Bey the Light for CR Fashion Book. “But for my daughter I dream a day/When no one roots for others to fail/When we all mean what we say.”

Beyoncé, 32, recently made headlines for delivering a show-stopping performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. For those kinds of shows, she wrote, she taps into her stage persona, Sasha Fierce — and it doesn’t stop there.

“Though we’re different as blue and red,” she wrote. “I’m not afraid to draw from her in performance, rifts, even in bed.”

The poem also touches on her deep connection with her late grandmother, the value she places on prayer and how she views her role as a performer.

“You call me a singer, but I’m called to transform/to suck up the grief, anxiety and loss of those who hear me into my song’s form,” she wrote. “I’m a vessel for all that isn’t right/for break-ups and lies and double-cross/I sing into that vessel a healing light.”

The comedian’s daughter, Melissa Rivers, released a statement Friday updating the status of her mother, who was hospitalized on Thursday after suffering cardiac arrest.

“My mother would be so touched by the tributes and prayers that we have received from around the world.

On Thursday morning, Rivers, 81, was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City after an emergency call that she was in cardiac arrest at an Upper East Side clinic, Yorkville Endoscopy, sources said. TMZ reported that Rivers was undergoing a procedure on her vocal chords at the clinic.

“I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother,” Melissa Rivers said in a statement released by Mount Sinai Hospital late Thursday night. “She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.”

Miley Cyrus Goes Naked in “V” Magazine Photo Spread

Friday, August 29th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

ABC/Richard Harbaugh(NEW YORK) — Anyone who thought Miley Cyrus was turning over a more modest new leaf just because she behaved at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards need only look at her racy spread in V magazine to see she hasn’t lost her edge.

Miley Instagrammed an image showing her laying nude on a pile of stuffed animals, a red box reading “SUBSCRIBE” the only thing protecting her modesty up top.  She also posted another one that is more risque in which she’s in the same pose, with small smiley faces acting as Photoshopped pasties over her nipples.  Miley named fashion giant Karl Lagerfeld as the shooter.

Miley also posted a pic of Lagerfeld holding a picture he shot of her wearing a skimpy Fendi bathing suit made of blue stuffed animal-like material.

Fittingly, the upcoming installment in which the controversial singer appears is called “The Rebel Issue.”  It hits newsstands Sept. 10, but is available for pre-order.

Donald Trump Completes ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Friday, August 29th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Stephen Lovekin/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Add Donald Trump to the list of celebrities taking part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Trump — nominated by ex-boxer Mike Tyson, World Wrestling Entertainment Chairman Vince McMahon and The Simpsons patriarch, Homer Simpson — completed the challenge with the help of Miss Universe, Gabriela Isler, and Miss USA, Nia Sanchez.

The 68-year-old business mogul also ended the long-running debate as to whether or not his hair is really his own.

In a video taped atop New York’s City’s Trump Tower, The Donald announces, “I’ve been called out by everybody for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge — Homer Simpson, Mike Tyson, Vince McMahon — like everybody is going crazy over this thing.” He adds, “I guess they wanna see if whether or not this is my real hair, which it is.”

He then challenges his sons Donald and Eric, as well as President Obama. The president already passed on the challenge earlier this month when he was called out by Ethel Kennedy, the 86-year-old widow of Robert Kennedy.

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has raised more than $88 million for Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

Britney Spears Is Single After Boyfriend Reportedly Cheated on Her

Friday, August 29th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Britney Spears is newly single — reportedly because her boyfriend cheated on her.

Brit tweeted on Thursday, “Ahhhh the single life!” Coincidentally or not, she posted that comment around the same time TMZ published a story claiming David Lucado was videotaped making out with another woman earlier this month.

Reportedly, Brit dumped her boyfriend after learning about the footage, which TMZ says is being shopped around.

A rep for David tells the website, “David is very, very in love with Britney. This is unfortunate and he hopes that it all works out.” Unfortunately for David, it didn’t work out — Brit’s rep confirms to Billboard that the pop star is single.

Britney dated David for a year and a half. Their relationship began not long after her engagement to her then-agent, Jason Trawick, ended in January of 2013.

Blake Lively Details Her Encounter with Angry Bees

Friday, August 29th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Ethan Miller/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Blake Lively’s 27th birthday celebration this past week didn’t get off to a great start. The former Gossip Girl star, whose birthday was Monday, says she was attacked by an angry swarm of bees.

In the latest post on her lifestyle blog, Preserve, Lively writes she was shooting content for Preserve when she suddenly “felt an electric shock of energy.”

Lively continues, “[W]as it excitement that I was about to turn another year older? Was it nerves? Why did it feel like agony? I like getting older…I think. But this felt terrible.”

Lively then writes, “Does your butt quite suddenly (and painfully) deflate when you turn 27? Because mine hurt like hell…then my neck, back, legs and forehead. And oh my hands! They were shriveling. It felt like I was being shot by dozens of tiny invisible darts. I felt like the Wicked Witch, melting, melting, burning, melting.”

“I wasn’t being greeted by the onset of spontaneous aging, but rather a full-fledged bee day. Attacked. All over. Everywhere,” she adds.

Lively says she doesn’t know what kind of bees stung her. She says the attack left her “shaken” and “swollen.”

She concludes the post by musing, “It took a swarm of bees to remind me that a b-day is nothing but a number. Each day I choose my age.”

Lively will next be seen starring opposite Harrison Ford in the upcoming drama, The Age of Adeline, scheduled to hit theaters in 2015.

Movie Review: “As Above/So Below” (Rated R)

Friday, August 29th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Universal(NEW YORK) — The found footage horror flick As Above/So Below revolves around Scarlet (Perdita Weeks), an archeologist of sorts who speaks multiple languages — two of them dead — and is a black belt in Krav Maga.  Totally believable, right?  Scarlet’s immediate goal in life is to fulfill her late father’s quest to find the Philosopher’s Stone, and she won’t let anything stop her…not even a silly thing like death.

When Scarlet discovers that the stone may be hidden in the catacombs of Paris, she recruits a team to accompany her on her underground descent, including a few people who know their way around the place. There, they encounter human remains, a guy who used to live in the catacombs but who disappeared two years ago, plenty of sudden, loud noises, and dozens of other obvious signs that they should leave before they all come to a horrible and violent end.

Then, there’s the most disturbing sign something is amiss: objects and people from each member of the team’s past begin to pop up. There’s a spooky piano, an even spookier dead brother and a burning car from an accident.  All of this, mind you, is taking place nearly a thousand feet under the streets of Paris.  Yes, it’s pretty creepy, but perhaps no more creepy than riding that New York City subway line you recently found out is infested with bedbugs.

Like so many horror films, the decisions made by these characters are preposterous — nearly as preposterous as the notion that you are watching found footage from a camera that was left behind with no hope of ever getting it back. I’m beginning to think it’s called “found” footage because people FIND it annoying. There’s nothing new here; aside from a couple of claustrophobic and aurally frightening moments, As Above/So Below is more boring than it is scary.

Two out of five stars.
