7Did Beyoncé Photoshop herself a thigh gap?

Celebrities Photoshopping their pictures – even their “candid” Instagram images – is nothing new and almost to be expected. However, no one really expected it from Beyoncé, who notoriously does NOT have a thigh gap but suddenly did in a vacation photo she posted on Thursday.

Bey has always been pretty body positive (at least in terms of how she discusses her body image publicly), so it seems bizarre that she would be concerned with noticeably slimming down her thighs. Then again, this is the person whose team begged bloggers to take down unflattering photos of her on tour and banned photographers from any future dates so she had full control over what was released.

Anyhow, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have been enjoying a nice little vacation together and here’s the photo that’s caused all the fuss:

Not sure what to make of it, really. I think maybe it’s just the angle the picture was taken? I can’t tell if that curve in on her leg is sloppy Photoshopping or the definition of muscle? WHO KNOWS? Bey is beautiful whatever way you slice it, but I suppose as a society we want to do anything we can to find some imperfection in those who seem perfect…

What do you think – is this Photoshopped or just a weird pic?

2Stephen Colbert Will Replace David Letterman on ‘The Late Show’

It was only a few short days ago when David Letterman revealed that he planned to pack in as the host of The Late Show sometime in 2015, and speculation on who would be named as his replacement has been rampant ever since.

Turns out, we didn’t have to wait very long to find out, as Stephen Colbert was announced as the new host of The Late Show on Thursday afternoon – and good for him! I’m a big fan of The Colbert Report, and he seems like such a genuinely awesome guy, so that’s amazing!

“Simply being a guest on David Letterman’s show has been a highlight of my career. I never dreamed that I would follow in his footsteps, though everyone in late night follows Dave’s lead,” Colbert, 49, says in a statement. “I’m thrilled and grateful that CBS chose me. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go grind a gap in my front teeth.”

That being said, I am a little concerned how he’ll translate his trademark sarcasm, biting satire and political commentary from cable to network TV. Also, I really wonder whether we’re going to get Stephen Colbert the character, like on the Report, or actual Stephen Colbert (which might be really weird/not go over well since it’s not what we’re used to).

So yeah, overall I’m pretty stoked but I’m also kind of uncertain. That being said, I’m not sure who would have been better. Part of me would have been pretty happy for someone other than a middle-aged white man to take the desk, but then… Colbert is really excellent, so I’m torn.

What do you think? Excited?

12How dare you point out Kylie Jenner’s plastic surgery!

kylie jenner

Kylie Jenner is a pretty girl, sure. She’ll grow up to be a pretty woman with lots of money and a “modeling” career or whatever it is she wants to do because that’s how her life is set up. However, her life is also set up to be full of numerous plastic surgery procedures, several of which I think have pretty clearly already been performed, despite the fact that she’s still just a teenager.

Apparently some plastic surgeon told OK Australia that Kylie showed signs of having had surgery on her nose and Botox injections in her lips (nevermind the sudden boobs that popped up out of nowhere), but Kylie is offended that you could ever say such a thing and took to Twitter to express her feelings.



No, girl, we didn’t forget. That’s part of the reason everyone’s so outraged. Shame, really.

0Katherine Heigl is so broke, she’s suing a drugstore

Katherine Heigl has been a bit low on money, as we all know, and apparently the bank account must REALLY be running dry and it’s time to resort to new measures to get the cash flow back up again, so she’s suing Duane Reade drugstores for $6 million. HAHA!

From The Wrap:

“Grey’s Anatomy” alum Heigl has filed a $6 million lawsuit against New York-based pharmacy chain Duane Reade, claiming that the company is illegally using her photo to for commercial gain.

According to the suit, filed in federal court in New York on Thursday, Duane Reade used a paparazzi shot of Heigl leaving a Duane Reade store and put the shot up on the company’s Facebook and Twitter accounts to “imply falsely that Plaintiff endorses Defendant.”

In one instance, the lawsuit alleges, Duane Reade posted a tweet of the photo with the message, “Love a quick #DuaneReade run? Even @KateHeigl can’t resist shopping #NYC’s favorite drugstore.”

Haha, WHAT? I can’t. So Duane Reade tweeted a picture of Katherine shopping in their stores and now they’re gaining from her? Sorry, but homegirl has a rather elevated idea of her influence. Knowing she goes to Duane Reade isn’t going to make me want to go there, to be honest – in fact, I’d probably be LESS likely to shop there (and truth be told, my apartment is closer to a Walgreen’s, anyway), so she needs to calm down.

This whole thing just screams desperation.

0Are Katie Holmes and Jason Segel a couple?

Well, this is a bit of a weird one. Katie Holmes and Jason Segel are apparently dating? Well, that’s what everyone was saying, anyway. This all stemmed from the fact that Katie filmed a guest appearance on How I Met Your Mother back in 2011, leading people to claim in 2014 that they’ve been dating on and off since?

It’s a pretty stupid claim, and no surprise that it seems to be entirely untrue:

“The story is completely untrue,” Holmes’ rep Leslie Sloane tells Us Weekly. “The two have not spoken since she appeared on How I Met Your Mother.”

Well, this is one denial I can get behind. I mean, this is the biggest reach I’ve seen in a long ass time.

Don’t forget that Katie was still married and Jason was with Michelle Williams (BEST COUPLE EVER) for a lot of that time. Not that people can’t and don’t have affairs, but you know.

LAME. Besides, we all know Katie is with Jamie Foxx, right? LOL.

3Is Miley Cyrus part of the evolution of feminism?

miley 3

Miley Cyrus really thinks she’s hot shit, and she also seems to overestimate her own importance in every way. But eh, she’s young, so we’ve got several more years of listening to her go on and on about her big ideas in life.

Her latest foray into… whatever it is she does is a new interview in Elle that she did with Rookie founder and fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson, in which she discusses her contribution to feminism yet again.

“I’m just about equality, period. It’s not like, I’m a woman, women should be in charge! I just want there to be equality for everybody. I still don’t think we’re there 100 percent. I mean, guy rappers grab their crotch all f—ing day and have hos around them, but no one talks about it. But if I grab my crotch and I have hot model bitches around me, I’m degrading women? I’m a woman–I should be able to have girls around me! But I’m part of the evolution of that. I hope.”

Cool, I guess? I mean, she totally doesn’t get what feminism is about AT ALL, but that’s fine, girl. If it’s all about your right to grab your crotch, knock yourself out.
