I have no idea what Ms. Mariah Carey is wearing, but do I ever?

I have no idea what Ms. Mariah Carey is wearing, but do I ever?

Hello, everyone. I’m admittedly having a sluggish week, as I’m still recovering from a stupid accidental injury I did to myself. But enough of that! Let’s get into the nitty gritty: celebrity outfits. Let’s see who’s wearing what (and why). It’s Best and Worst Celebrity Looks of the Week! This week includes some photos from the White House Correspondent’s dinner.

Go through the photos and make your picks for who had the BESTWORST, and most WTF look of the week! Mine are at the bottom.

First, let’s get to the highlights (mostly) of the White House Correspondent’s Dinner:

Ashley Judd

Ashley Judd. Haven’t seen her in a while. She looks lovely. I don’t know what exactly is going on in her hair, but I suppose I’m not terribly opposed to it.

Taylor Swift’s Next Album Will Be “Very Different” From ’1989′

taylor swift

I don’t know about you, but I’m still listening to Taylor Swift‘s last album, 1989. fairly regularly. That album is full of ~jams~ from start to finish and it’s going to be pretty hard for her to outdo herself next time. But she’s still looking forward to a new album that’s “very different” from this one when it DOES happen – and that includes Kanye West, as we all know.

From Entertainment Tonight:

“We’ve never been in the studio together, but he’s got a lot of amazing ideas. He’s one of those people who is just like idea, idea, like, ’What do you think of this?’ ’What do you think of that?’ He’s very creative and I think we’ve talked about it, but we’ve always talked about so many other things. I think I completely respect his vision as a producer, so thats all I know now. I have no idea what the next album is going to be, though.”

“I’m not making the next record yet. That’s going to take a lot of thinking about what that should be, because with 1989 — I love this album so much that I think it would be doing a real disservice to this album to try to copy it the next time around,” she said. “I think it’s going to have to be something very, very different creatively.”

Well, at least she’s not rushing anything for the sake of keeping her career on the run. Then again, it’s not like her popularity will be waning any time soon. The entire world LOVES Taylor Swift and she’s about to embark on a tour (if it hasn’t already started – I can’t remember) that will run for several years. I think she’s here to stay.

As for that Kanye collaboration… I’m a bit scared, to be honest. Nothing good can come of this… or can it?

Elizabeth Banks Shades Tara Reid But She’s Got A Point

elizabeth banks hollywood reporter

Pitch Perfect 2 is coming out soon, and people seem to be pretty stoked on it. I thought the first one was good, but not something I desperately needed a sequel to and can’t live without… but hey, to each her own. Elizabeth Banks directed the latest installment and she’s loving her new role behind the camera. She talked about this and other things – like how hard it is to be a woman getting older in Hollywood and how SOME PEOPLE, like, say, Tara Reid, just “didn’t make it”. SHADE!

From The Hollywood Reporter:

On Hollywood being difficult for ‘older’ actresses: “There was a group of us girls coming up. A lot of us are surviving. Some of us are not. I used to go to auditions with Tara Reid. So, you know, we didn’t all make it. We’re not all still here – I do love Sharknado”

On being a female director: “The list of women who get to make studio-level films is very short. And I’m not quite in that club yet. Until this movie comes out, then we’ll see. This shoot is the test. I like to get A’s.”

On becoming the director of Pitch Perfect 2: “I went through no hoops for this particular job. I just put myself right at the spot where someone needed to be to get the job. And I prepared. I knew I wanted to direct, so I met DPs, I ran sets, I chose music. I went through the process of directing in little ways — nothing too big or risky or time-consuming. I just started really observing.”

On advice/challenges: “Some big actresses told me a few things that inspired me. One said that the biggest challenge for a female actress was to make sure they are not pro­foundly bored. Another told me to just do whatever you want — do anything. And another told me that her quote hadn’t changed in 15 years. That really lit a fire under my ass.”

Well, you can’t fault the woman for being honest. I don’t know that Tara Reid ever really had any kind of serious chops – comedy, acting, any of that – that would have let her really dominate in Hollywood, and she was always a bit too sloppy to hold it all together, anyway. Elizabeth has a natural charm and a very “girl next door” feeling about her, which gave her a foot in the door, but it did take her a while to get there. I like her, though. And I also like Sharknado.

Blake Lively Wants To Go To Harvard Business School

blake lively

Blake Lively juggles many roles in her day-to-day life. She’s an actress, an artisan entrepreneur (LOL), and a new mom/full time breastfeeder. But she’s not ready to rest on her laurels. No, Blake is setting her sights even higher: she wants to attend Harvard Business School… you know, when she actually gets some time.

From Stylist UK:

As a woman in business do you think there’s a similar lack of representation?There are a lot of women in business, but they don’t get enough opportunities. If you look at the facts, women spend the most on e-commerce sites, yet less than 30% of the companies that venture capitalists fund are female-driven, even though female-run companies are the most successful. Women connect with other women. So why are we are not looking at the numbers?

Would you say you are naturally business-brained? I love it but I think it’s more innate for me; it’s not something I went to college for. My mum is someone who faced a lot of obstacles but never took no for an answer and she showed me the only person who can limit you is yourself. Business is also about generosity. Entrepreneurs helping each other out. People starting their own companies who could be competitors are actually saying to me, “This is a mistake I made and this is how you can do it better. Meet my technology officer who can teach you how to build your technology platform.” You realise there is room for everyone, as long as you work hard enough.

Finally, what else is left to achieve? I have a dream to go to Harvard Business School and one of these days I will do that… in my spare time!

Can’t hate on a woman who wants to educate herself. I mean, I feel like there’s some kind of douchey subtext here, but if there is, I’m choosing to ignore it and give her a pat on the back.

Look, guys – I have a confession to make. I know Blake Lively is totally obnoxious and kinda not worth taking seriously, but I can’t help but like her in a lot of ways, particularly because they asked her who her favourite chef is and she said Nigella Lawson and Heston Blumenthal, which are two of mine :( :( :( What does this all mean?

‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Gets Its First Trailer, Will Be “More Of A Thriller”

darker

Keep in mind that the first installment of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy was only released a little over two months ago, on Valentine’s Day. I bet it’s even still playing in some theatres around the world – that’s how new it is. But never one to enjoy the present too much, fans are already desperate to know more about Fifty Shades Darker, the second installment, and it looks like they’re (sorta) getting their wish since the first “teaser” was released on Thursday:

Frankly, a 30 second clip, at least half of which is production credits and/or film company logos, isn’t really much to go on, but people are still going nuts watching Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey putting on a jacket and an eye mask. I guess that’s in line with the other news we found out yesterday, which is that Fifty Shades Darker – which is being written by E.L. James’ husband rather than the author herself – is going to be “more of a thriller” than its predecessor, as Universal’s Donna Langley revealed in conversation with The Hollywood Reporter. Oh, joy!

What do you think?

Kelly Preston’s ‘Sex Secrets’ To Be Revealed In New Tell-All Book

john travolta kelly preston

A few years back, some whack job named Robert Randolph put out a book called You’ll Never Spa In This Town Again, an unofficial (obviously) tell-all that said John Travolta is a gay sex addict and detailed his exploits over the years. Well, Randolph, being the prolific writer he is, has more in him yet! Now he’s ready to reveal Travolta’s wife Kelly Preston‘s “sex secrets”, of which she apparently has many!

From Radar Online:

Randolph told The National ENQUIRER: “In the beginning, I was under the spell that maybe Kelly was the innocent one in the marriage. But that may not be true.”

“I have heard things about her from people I’ve interviewed who claim she’s hiding her own sex secrets,” added Randolph.

The author added of his tell-all covering Preston, 52, and 61-year-old Travolta: “The new book will dig into whether Kelly and John have a ‘fake marriage’ to fool his fans.”

But that’s not all, promises Randolph. “I’m also checking out rumors that Kelly boozes and pops pills, and that both she and John once both shared the same sexual partner!”

Wow, sounds like an absolute page turner and a must read! I love that this weirdo doesn’t think there’s anything at all strange about the fact that he seems to be dedicating his life to someone else’s sex life. And not even just “someone else” – a celebrity he doesn’t know and has never met.

Sure, we all know Travolta’s gay, but so what? He doesn’t want to be out, so he’s not. Let the man live. Let him cruise for dudes and be brainwashed by Scientology for the rest of his days, if that’s what he so desires (and it clearly is). As for Kelly, I mean… whatever. Does anyone even care?

Justin Bieber Hopes You “Felt The Sincerity” Of His Apologies

justin bieber hero

Justin Bieber is a changed man these days. He’s seen the error of his ways (despite the fact that nothing at all about his lifestyle has changed) and he’s ready to live life on the straight and narrow. He’s even issued a heartfelt apology to tell the world just how sorry he is for being a ding dong for so long. Did you hear his remorse? Did you feel the sincerity? Justin hopes so.

From Hero mag (via People):

“I hope people felt the sincerity in my apologies,” he says. “There are a lot of things that have happened in the last couple years that I’m not proud of and I feel a responsibility to my fans and to the public who believe in me to make it right … it was honest.” 

Okey doke. Whatever you say! Justin also talked about what fans can expect from his upcoming album:

“The biggest difference is that I’m older,” he says about his upcoming music, which is partly being produced by Kanye West and Rick Rubin. “I was 17 when I recorded most of my last album, and I’m 21 now. I’ve been through a lot in a public way, which gives me a much different perspective on things.” 

Adds the singer: “The creative process this time around is more personal … It’s amazing because I’m able to really work out anything I am feeling in my music.” 

I mean, with the big names he has working with him, I think it’ll actually be pretty good. Not in, like, a “Whoa, what an incredible music artist Justin Bieber has turned into!” but more of a “I’ll bump this in my headphones when I’m out walking the dog” kinda way.  I have no shame!!

But this kid still hasn’t changed at all – once a douche, always a douche. Well, generally speaking, anyway.

Also, LOL to these pics:
