Blake Lively just turned 27, but it seems her “bee-day” was a less than happy one because she was attacked by thousands of them while shooting content for her lifestyle website, Preserve… which is where she shared the following story:
I spent the week leading up to my big day shooting content for Preserve’s coming months. (I can’t wait to share what we captured with you.) Just yesterday, the final day of the shoot, I felt an electric shock of energy– was 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. 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.
As it happens, I wasn’t being greeted by the onset of spontaneous aging, but rather a full-fledged bee day. Attacked. All over. Everywhere.
I don’t know enough about insects to say if they were wasps, honeybees or Mother Nature’s miniature flying tasers. What I DO know, is that just moments before we were in the midst of a gorgeous fall fashion shoot. Now, I was a Monty Python sketch; running at top speed in no particular direction, whipping my arms and h ands around like I’d just discovered they were growing out of my shoulders without my previous knowledge. There was a terrible sound piercing the air too… I was later informed this sound had emanated from my very own mouth. I’d prefer to never hear it again. Along with everybody else on the East Coast.
I was shaken. I was swollen. I had to stop what I was doing to recuperate and/or shrink.
In case you just can’t bear not knowing what happened next, Blake apparently “looked for the nearest vanilla cake and decorated it”, because I suppose if you’re rich and famous, you just have vanilla cakes sitting around all the time.
I know literally next to nothing about Blake Lively, so can any of you shed light on whether she’s always been this fucking smarmy? She’s making Gwyneth Paltrow look tame, here. Make it stop.

Wow, what a week it’s been for celebrity fashion! We had a VMAs fashion post and an Emmy awards fashion post all in one week! So this edition of Best and Worst Celebrity Looks of the Week is going to be a little shorter than usual.
But nothing’s changed — go through the photos and tell me who YOU think has the BEST, WORST, and most WTF look of the week! And as always, my choices are at the bottom.
Ariana Grande. What is with this chick? Why does she always dress like a Bratz doll?

Nothing says rebellion quite like nudity, apparently. At least according to Miley Cyrus. She finally got to make a dream come true by working with Karl Lagerfeld for V Magazine’s upcoming Rebel Issue, and it’s… underwhelming, as per usual.

I don’t know if any Hollywood star has been plagued by more pregnancy “stories” than Jennifer Aniston. Will she have kids, is she pregnant now, why doesn’t she want kids, can’t she have kids, when is she going to get pregnant, is she too old to have kids? It’s fucking endless, and if we’re exhausted of hearing those stories, imagine how tired she must be of being the subject of them. Look: Jennifer Aniston doesn’t have any children and probably never will. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT, and she wants you to shut up already.
“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,” the actress, 45, told PEOPLE Wednesday at the Los Angeles premiere of her film Life of Crime, in which she plays a 1970s-era socialite.
“I just find it to be energy that is unnecessary and not really fair for those who may or may not [have children],” she added. “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.”
“It’s everyone’s personal prerogative, that’s all.”
Too true, girl.
I like Jennifer and always have – and I feel bad that she’s constantly harangued about her decision to have children or not. Men don’t get those kind of questions NEARLY as much, and it’s bullshit. Newsflash, media: Not everyone in the world wants to procreate. Then again, Jennifer has never come out and expressly said, “No, I will never have children because I really don’t want them so never ask me again” (as far as I can recall). Not that she should have to – and like she points out, there’s a number of reasons people don’t have children and what those reasons are aren’t really our business. It’s just a shame that she gets painted as some dried up old spinster while Angelina, for instance, is bathed in the heavenly light of having a brood of children. That’s no shade to Angelina, either – she didn’t perpetuate that image, the media did.

I can’t believe it’s already been over 18 months since Shakira got her shar pei on and gave birth to her first child, but indeed it has! She had her son in January 2013, and now she’s ready to give him a sibling because she’s pregnant again! She shared the news in an interview with Cosmopolitan en Espanol, but later confirmed the news via her Facebook page:
Congrats to Shakira and her not at all territorial boyfriend, Gerard Pique!
