Cameron Diaz flashes her new engagement ring

Just a few days after news broke that Cameron Diaz and boyfriend of less than a year Benji Madden were engaged, our girl Cam was spotted out and about with a massive engagement ring, looking pretty pleased with herself/life/etc.

Frankly, this doesn’t look much like an engagement ring, especially when you get up close. It just looks like a thick silver band – where’s the stone?!

Huh. This may not be an engagement ring after all, but it’s on that finger, so maybe we’re being trolled. Who can say?

Lupita Nyong’o wrote an adorable poem about her crazy year

lupita nyong'o

Lupita Nyong’o has had an absolutely incredible year. 12 Years a Slave really catapulted her into the stratosphere of hardcore celebrity, winning her an Oscar, landing her a role as the face of Lancome, getting her an appearance on Sesame Street… crazy!

As the year comes to a close, Lupita paid tribute to it by writing a really cute poem. Here it is!


This year was one of a kind, And a kind one to me. There was lots to be done, And a whole lot to see. I had family and friends, And colleagues galore, Now I have fans, Plus a million and four! You tweet and you post, And you instagram too. You chat, comment, draw, You just do what you do. And though I don't answer 'Cause time is a-tickin', Know that you matter By the posts that I'm pickin'. I keep posting 'Cause I know that you care, And I care to post When I know that you're there. So this season, Though I know your name not, I'm happy I got you, And that I gave what you got. I wish for you peace, Love, joy, laughter beams, And in the new year, May you live out your dreams! (And as Dr. Seuss says:) "If things start happening, don't worry, don't stew, just go right along and you'll start happening too." Love, Lupita N.

Hayden Panettiere’s body will never be the same after giving birth

hayden panettiere baby

Hayden Panettiere gave birth to her first child with fiancé Wladimir Klitschko, a little girl named Kaya Evdokia, earlier this month. Considering that Hayden is tiny as hell and Wlad is insanely huge – and the fact that the baby was nearly two feet long and weighed 8 pounds, it’s no wonder she’s finding it hard to get back on her feet and to her old self.

“I’m limping around. I’m still trying to figure out what [pregnancy] has done to my body, how it’s changed it. What’s temporary and what’s permanent,” Panettiere tells PEOPLE, laughing. “I feel like an 80-year-old woman trying to go down the stairs, you know, please tell me this is temporary. But I know some things will never be the same again.”

So far, little Kaya has been an easy baby despite a few restless nights and what Panettiere describes as an “insatiable appetite.”

“She’s really so sweet,” the actress says. “I’m sure that’s the way it’s meant to be, because when they are putting you through the ringer you’re like, ‘You are so lucky you’re cute!’”

LOL, I’m sure some bits WILL never be the same again – but other bits will eventually move back into place, un-stretch, etc. However, I do not envy her one bit – having a baby is a miraculous thing, sure, but holy smokes, your body goes through some crazy stuff.

At least they have a cute little wrinkly, wiggly thing now :)

Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton split after 13 years together

helena bonham carter tim burton

I hate to bring a darkness to Christmas Eve, in whatever sense, but I’ve got some bad news: Earth’s favourite neo-Victorian goth couple, Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton, have split after 13 long years together. WHY, GOD, WHY? Sure, there were cheating rumours a little over a year ago, but we all thought they got past that. APPARENTLY NOT.

The couple “separated amicably earlier this year and have continued to be friends and co-parent their children,” Carter’s rep tells PEOPLE exclusively. “We would ask that you respect their privacy and that of their children during this time.”

Huh. Once again, it’s one of those “they’re still totally great friends!!!” statements that really grind my gears – but who knows, maybe they are BFFs and life is great. I doubt it, but whatever. Sad situation but hopefully they’re keeping it cordial for the kids.

Kris Jenner strips with Kendall around the Christmas tree

I don’t even really know where to begin (or end) with this one. You know that Love Magazine shoot/video with Kendall Jenner being all sultry and dancing around a Christmas tree in lingerie? Well, it just got a whole lot better (worse?) because Kris Jenner was there for her daughter’s big day and decided to get in on the naughty fun.

They smashed Christmas ornaments!

They wore reindeer antlers!

They “danced”!

Oh, man. I really need Kris to stop, like, yesterday. The whole “I’m a cool mom” routine has just gotten to be beyond creepy. Stay out of your daughter’s lingerie shoots and get your own life instead of pimping your daughters out so you can live vicariously. I mean, come on!

Anyhow, if you really want to torture yourself with the full video, here you go!

Madonna “living in a state of terror” over album leak

Madonna

Sometimes you just can’t with Madonna, right? Like, total legend, will be bumpin’ The Immaculate Collection until the day I die, etc, but like… really? Some of the shit that comes out of her mouth is so surprisingly ignorant – especially coming from someone who’s made it a point to be so socially conscious in every area throughout her career (and yes, purposely provocative, as well). That’s why people went nutterbees when she started comparing having her album leaked to being raped and calling the hackers terrorists and shit – there is not really comparing an artist having your album ending up online before its release date to, you know, actual rape and acts of terror.

She tried to explain herself a bit better in a new interview with The Guardian this week, but it didn’t go over all that well:

“Obviously there is a person, or a group of people behind this that were essentially terrorising me. I don’t want to sound alarming, but certainly that’s how I felt. It’s one thing if someone comes into your house and steals a painting off your wall: that’s also a violation, but, your work, as an artist, that’s devastating.

“I’m an artistic person, I’m very expressive. I’m sorry if words alarm people, but that’s what it felt like. It was not a consensual agreement. I did not say ‘hey, here’s my music, and it’s finished.’ It was theft.”

Yes, it was theft. That’s all it was. Not rape, not terrorist activity, just theft. And that’s serious in and of itself, but let’s not get shit confused.

Madge also has some thoughts on the Illuminati – to the point that she actually has a track called ‘Illuminati’, all about it. Let us be enlightened by Madonna’s high spiritual lessons:

“There’s a lot of talk in pop music right now about people saying, ‘Oh, this person’s a member of the Illuminati,’ or they’re Illuminati, or you’re Illuminati, and people’s idea that there’s a group of entertainers or very wealthy people, they’re referred to as the Illuminati, and they work behind the scenes and they control things and they’re very powerful, and there’s possibly a reference to something dark, or black magic, or something like that. And I have to say I laugh at all of those things.

“I think there are some people who don’t mind being referred to as that, but I know who the real Illuminati are, and where that word came from. The root of the word is “illuminate”, and that means “The enlightened ones”, and it came from the Age of Enlightenment, when a lot of arts and creativity flourished, from Shakespeare to Isaac Newton, to Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo: the philosophers, artists, scientists were all engaged in a kind of high level of consciousness through their work, and they were enlightening and inspiring people around the world. And those are the true Illuminati. So the purpose for writing that song was really in a way, ‘So, if you think I’m the Illuminati, then thank you very much, a compliment, because I would like very much to be part of that group, the real Illuminati, and this is what it’s not’”.

LOL, okay, girl. I’m just going to let you rock with that one because there’s no talking logic with someone who feels the need to turn crazy people conspiracy theories on the internet into real life drama is beyond help. By the way, the album – from what I’ve listened to so far, is embarrassing as hell. Please have a listen to ‘Bitch, I’m Madonna’ (yes, real song title) and try to tell me I’m wrong.

Miley Cyrus celebrates Christmas in a rather interesting way

miley cyrus

I don’t think there’s much sense in asking what the hell is going on with Miley Cyrus here, to be honest. It’s just what she does. Of course she would put on a demented, half-naked elf outfit, carry a purse that says “I have no tits” and look like a walking bad acid trip. We’re all on board with it.

The lovely photo above was taken from Wayne Coyne‘s art gallery party in Oklahoma City, but that ain’t all! Miley also wore glittery weed leaves on her boobs, kissed girls and basically acted like a smacked ass, as per usual. Here are a few more photos:

Wow, that… looks like fun, I guess? Frankly, I really don’t know what the hell goes on with Miley and Wayne Coyne but it’s all a bit strange for my taste.
