0Zac Efron has some serious dance moves

zac efron

When you think of Zac Efron, it’s likely you don’t drift off into a reverie about his sexy dance moves. That is… until you see this video of Zac dancing on a makeshift runway to Jason Derulo‘s ‘Wiggle’ while in Italy with friends (one of whom was apparently Michelle Rodriguez). The video was posted by Italian entrepreneur Gianluca Vacchi, who seems to know Zac for some reason or other that I can’t figure out.

You know, I don’t even want to taint this moment for you, so I’ll just allow you to watch and enjoy.

1Beyonce really does run the world, it seems

beyonce

Yesterday, Forbes released their Celebrity 100 list, which is – as you probably guessed – a list of the most powerful figures in Hollywood. Unsurprisingly, Beyoncé topped that list at the #1 spot, pushing down last year’s winner, Oprah, all the way down to #4.

According to the list, Bey earned $115 million last year – pretty impressive, and sorta depressing to think about. However, it’s not all about money – LeBron James came in the second spot and made only $72 million (“only”), while third place charter Dr. Dre brought in a whopping $620 million. Oprah still raked in $82 million, and Ellen DeGeneres was right behind her at #5, making an impressive $70 million. Jay-Z, Floyd Mayweather, Rihanna, Katy Perry and Robert Downey Jr. all rounded out the Top 10.

So how does Forbes come up with this list? Here, let them explain:

To create the Celebrity 100, we start by compiling earnings estimates for more than 200 celebrities to create a pool of top earners. To come up with our earnings estimates, we talk to agents, lawyers, producers and other in-the-know folks about entertainment-related earnings for each celebrity. That can include things like upfront pay for movies, syndication payments for old TV shows, tournament winnings and endorsements. We don’t deduct for taxes, agent fees or the other costs of being a celebrity.

Then we use Factiva to count how many times each celebrity was mentioned in print, on TV and on the radio between June 1, 2013, and June 1, 2014, the time frame for this year’s list.

We also measure social media reach with help from the smart people at StarCount. The Singapore-based company measures social networking power across 11 platforms including Twitter TWTR +0.1%, Facebook, YouTube, Orkut and Weibo. Each star’s number is a reflection of how popular he or she is on the Internet.

This year, we also added an impact ranking for each celebrity. The number is the degree of impact each celebrity has had on the entertainment industry and our culture overall during the prior year, based on the evaluation of the list editors, reporters and their sources for the list.

Huh, sounds sorta complicated. I guess by that account, it makes sense that Beyoncé would come up in the top spot. I don’t think she’ll hold onto it for 2015, however – we’re all getting a little tired from the Bey & Jay overkill.

2Pics: Gisele Bundchen got a buzz cut for Balenciaga

gisele

Gisele Bundchen is one of the most successful supermodels in the world and is known for her incredible beauty – and her long, gorgeous hair. Well, you can say goodbye to the latter – she’s shaved it off into a buzz cut for a new Balenciaga campaign. They must’ve been paying her a pretty penny for that shit!

I guess the one positive thing here is that she can just get up and go in the mornings, now. Considering she doesn’t even own a hairbrush, I’m sure she’s not that bothered about her new ‘do. After all, it’s just hair – it grows back.

What do you think? Does she pull it off?

4Would you wear Jessica Simpson’s new perfume?

jessica simpson

Jessica Simpson is back on top these days, it seems. She’s looking and feeling good, she’s got endorsements left and right, she’s about to get married to the father of her two adorable kids and now she’s releasing her own fragrance. Jessica Simpson Signature is hitting store shelves in August, but would you actually wear it? Here’s a bit more about it (via E! Online):

Jessica Simpson Signature opens to whimsical notes of citrus, blending hints of clementine, nectarine, pomegranate and apricot. The heart of the fragrance is a romantic floral bouquet of frangipani, night blooming jasmine, orange flower and tiger lily. Warm, satisfying dry notes of white chocolate vanilla bean accord, sandalwood, tonka bean and drift wood round out the natural beauty of this harmonious signature scent,” reads a statement about the Jessica Simpson Fragrance Collection, whose products retail from $18 to $65.

It comes in a teardrop-shaped bottle with a gold feather-like cap, which Jessica herself says represents “spiritual evolution, truth and lightness”. Well, okay.

I know celebs have come out with some okay fragrances – Jennifer Aniston’s smelled pretty good, and I still know a few people who swear by Britney Spears’ first one. However, I just can’t gel with the idea of heading to my local Rite-Aid to ask the part-time cashier to open the plastic cabinet to hand me a bottle of Jessica Simpson’s perfume.

Would you wear it – or at least consider wearing it?

6Amy Adams gave up her first class seat to a US soldier on flight to LAX

amy adams

I feel like we don’t talk about Amy Adams enough. She’s lovely! She’s beautiful, talented, seems incredibly down-to-earth and is kind without the need to draw attention to herself. That latter quality was demonstrated on a flight to LAX on Friday when she gave up her first-class seat to a US soldier in coach.

From People:

The Oscar nominee was at the airport in Detroit on Friday when she spotted a soldier in uniform at her gate and then arranged to give her first class seat to the man, who had been ticketed in coach.

Jemele Hill, co-host of ESPN’s Numbers Never Lie, was also on the flight and Tweeted about what happened next.

“Just saw actress Amy Adams do something incredibly classy,” she wrote. “She gave her 1st class seat to an American soldier. I’m an even bigger fan now.”

“I don’t think he knows she did it,” she added.

“As I was getting seated, I saw the flight attendant guide the soldier to Ms. Adams’ seat. She was no longer in it, but it was pretty clear that she’d given up her seat for him,” Hill told ABC News. “I was incredibly impressed.”

Hill revealed that Adams, 39, whose father was in the U.S. military, briefly chatted to the soldier by the cockpit and then went back to her seat in coach.

“[She] did it so quietly and quickly that it speaks to her character,” Hill said. “And somebody in coach just got a helluva seatmate.”

Aw, isn’t that sweet? (Seriously – no sarcasm there.) I’ve always thought she seemed really lovely, and this just confirms it. More Amy Adams! Amy Adams for president!
