One of the biggest stories to come out of last night’s Grammys is that 33 couples of all kinds – gay, straight, interractial – decided to get married during Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s (and Mary Lambert and Madonna‘s) performance of ‘Same Love’ during the ceremony, with Queen Latifah walking out of the closet (heaviest handed hint ever?) to officiate. Apparently someone is familiar with Universal Life Church and got ordained online, because I don’t think those marriages count?
In any case, it was all very touching and there wasn’t a dry eye in the place (mine were watering from boredom because this ceremony was nearly FOUR HOURS LONG) and Katy Perry even got a free bouquet out of the deal – hope you were paying attention, John Mayer… LOL!

I love Taylor Swift. I can’t help myself, I just do. Not in a way that means I listen to her albums – which I do have in my iTunes, by the way – any more than once a year or anything, but she does have some “jams” and I do find her to be sorta adorable. And I can see why, when you’re used to winning everything and always coming out on top, you’d sorta grow to expect it in a way… which I suppose is the only explanation for what happened last night.
As the coveted Album of the Year award was being announced at the Grammys on Sunday, Taylor preemptively got a little excited for her win… which wasn’t actually hers. In fact, the trophy went to Daft Punk, but Taylor’s face before she realises that is absolutely priceless. Seriously, take a look at this:
It’s slightly tragic – and yes, I know, it’ll be obnoxious to the Taylor haters – but I think this is absolutely hilarious. Thankfully, her brain catches up with her face pretty quickly, but woo boy, it was tough going there for a second. Surely that deserves an award of its own, right?

I’m going to be honest and level with you here: I have no idea who in the hell Josh Lucas actually is. I had to Google him, and even after I’ve seen a list of the movies he’s been in – which include A Beautiful Mind, Sweet Home Alabama and Stealth, in case you’re equally as clueless – I’m still not quite sure what his deal is. I do know that he used to date Rachel McAdams back in ’09, so that’s something?
In any case, he married a woman named Jessica Ciencin Henriquez a little less than two years ago after they met in a dog park in 2011. In 2012, he proposed when she got knocked up and their blessed union came to be later that year. And now it’s over – they’re getting divorced. Surprise!
Henriquez apparently filed the divorce papers earlier this month in New York. The reason behind the split isn’t known, but I think it’s rather obvious: they barely knew each other, she got knocked up and they tried to do the “honourable thing” by old world standards and it was a disaster.
In any case, Josh Lucas is single again, ladies!

Kerry Washington is a gorgeous woman – and an incredibly talented one, as well. She’s also very pregnant at the moment, so of course her red carpet style has changed along with her body for this awards season, and that can be a great thing! The dress she wore to the 66th Annual Directors Guild of America Awards on Saturday, however, was an absolute disaster and made me (and many others, I’m sure) wonder what in the hell her stylist (and the actress herself) was thinking.
This dress shouldn’t even be called a dress. It’s like someone pulled down the curtains, wrapped it around her and sent her on her way. Here it is from the front:
This is an Oscar de la Renta number, which is sorta crazy since his stuff is usually really classy and quite flattering. Not so on this one.

How much do you think they paid Tatiana Voziouk, former housekeeper chez Justin Bieber, to blab to the paper about the goings-on inside his crackhouse? It must’ve been a pretty penny, because she quite willingly opened up about all the shit he gets up to for The Sunday People. Basically, she claims he walks around like a zombie and thinks he’s headed for certain destruction and will be dead soon. Woo hoo!
And she says 19-year-old Bieber and his friends are risking their lives by drinking dangerous cocktails of codeine-based cough syrup and soda, known as “sizzurp”.
“The drugs and hangers-on are turning Justin into a zombie. I’m terrified he’ll become the next Michael Jackson. If he doesn’t act now I will hear one day that he has passed away. It is heartbreaking. I have decided to speak out now as I care for him.”
Tatiana, 47, says marijuana would be delivered to the star’s house near Los Angeles by a legal drug company who supply for medicinal purposes. She claims she watched as hangers-on would throw parties at the house and take drugs when Justin was there and also while he was away fulfilling his gruelling pop schedule.
She said: “On the kitchen top there was often a bottle of prescription cough syrup which I know had codeine in it, but I am not sure what else. There were soft drinks like Fanta alongside it too.
“Usually celebs like their drinks thrown away if they leave them out as they are scared of being poisoned. I was told not to touch those bottles. And I wasn’t allowed to throw them away.
“I never saw him drink from those bottles but Justin did ask me a couple of times where I had put them. I didn’t see exactly if they were mixing them together and making cocktails but I thought it looked suspicious they were next to each other.”
The medical marijuana company would regularly deliver.
Tatiana said: “They give users marijuana in the form of cookies, lollipops and candies. These products were always in the house. I was always picking up joint butts and stubs from the kitchen, lounge and pool area where they had been thrown.”
I mean, him being a pothead isn’t a surprise or as much of a concern, but longterm Sizzurp sippin’ (combined with extra prescription drugs, in particular) lead to trouble. Look what that shit did to Lil Wayne, man.
I do love when former employees/friends of a celeb pretend they’re speaking out out of “concern” – it cracks me up. No, you spoke out for the check as presumably you are now unemployed, lady. Get it together.

Kristen Stewart, the totally straight and not at all a lesbian actress who refuses to smile in pictures (LOVE YOU, KSTEW!), has made a revelation to the press: she wants to shave her head before she dies and get tattoos all over her bald ass scalp. Of course, she can’t really do that at the moment because she’s a very Serious Actor, but she plans to make her dreams come true one day before she dies.
From Into the Gloss:
If I wasn’t an actor, I would definitely do things to my hair. I would cut it more, I would dye it more. At some point I want to do a total boy cut, completely—not a pretty, girly version—like a straight up James Dean haircut. And then, I’m definitely going to shave my head before I die. I will definitely tattoo my head while it’s shaved before my hair grows back. I’m not sure which part, probably the bottom quadrant in the back. I don’t know what the tattoo would be, yet. Still thinking.
Fair enough, girl. I’ve always had a little bit of a thing for KStew, to be honest – I sorta think she’s a total babe when she’s not shoved into a dress and all of that haute couture shit. Her skinny jeans and Chucks look works for me. I like that she’s such a sourpuss and has that incredible ennui that hits you in your late teens/early 20s. She just doesn’t give a fuck, no matter what she’s doing, and I find that sort of enjoyable… at least for now. However, I don’t know that I would get behind a bald, scalp-tattooed KStew. Luckily, that’s not something we have to confront just yet. And anyway, do your thing, Kristen.
Here’s a little more on her fashion sense:
If you looked at pictures of me when I was 14 or 15, you couldn’t tell the difference between me and my brothers. I looked like a boy, fully. I really like extremes. I wear jeans and t-shirts and am a total tomboy, but at the same time, when I pull out all the stops [for an event], I want to fucking go for it, polarized in the other direction from my reality. Everything Balenciaga makes is beautiful; watching their runway shows is like watching a movie. But wearing it is not the easiest thing. It’s tough to integrate that type of thing into your life. But when you can do it—wear something unexpected, with your personal style—it’s incredibly badass.
Huh. Cool. Side note: what the hell is up with these pics? I know we’re not talking about Vogue here, but it looks like they were shot on one of those Walgreen’s disposable cameras. I suppose that makes them seem more “candid”.
