Oscars: Let’s hear it for Adele Dazim!

The Oscars have come so far. They truly have. I’ve been watching the Academy Awards for nearly a decade now, in the beginning because I felt obliged to and now because it’s actually (mildly) entertaining. Last night’s telecast had many great moments that are making me cope with this dreadful Monday morning a little better than usual.

First and foremost, we got introduced to Adele Dazim:


This will never not be funny. But IDINA MENZEL is a legend and killed it anyway–well, mostly, except for the grand finale note which she literally killed.

Moving on, Ellen was on fire in hosting duties, even if the pizza joke was nearly overkill. The roast of JLaw was amazing, but there was one particular bit that took the cake:


“Did I miss it?!” Ellen yelled, running out after the “Wizard of Oz” tribute ended. I can empathize. Watching childhood dreams be crushed is never easy, like when I came to terms with the fact that I would never have a twin sibling like Lindsay Lohan had in “The Parent Trap.”

Then there was that awkward moment when one lady thought she was on “The Voice.”


Lupita Nyong’o won Best Supporting Actress and I was a wreck before she even left her seat. I have become so emotionally fragile in my mid-twenties.


I also teared up because Sandy teared up.


But enough crying. There was so much to be HAPPY about! Like Meryl Effing Streep shimmying with Pharrell, and his hat.


All of the dancing had everyone hungry, so Ellen ordered pizza, and Brad Pitt was adorbz and assumed the role of paper-plate-hander-outter:


And the reoccurring fact that anything JLaw does just make us love her. See Jennifer laugh. See Jennifer breathe. See Jennifer sit. Sigh…it’s love.


Oh, and see Jennifer fall AGAIN, before she even made it inside. Maybe she’ll nominated next year in “Gravity, Why?!”


But my favorite moment will still be hanging with all of my besties, in the best selfie ever.



Miley Watch: Bye, bye brows

Do you remember that silly game you used to (or still do) play with your besties at a sleepover, the one where you would cover your eyebrows with your fingers and laugh at each other’s hairless foreheads? Well, Miley Cyrus is playing that game too, but like, for real.

The singer posted a selfie (Yay! It’s a word now!) today showing off her bleached brows. Check it out:


I’m looking at it with my face half turned away because half of me is really creeped out and the other half can’t stop looking at it. Which side will win?!

It’s a “Bad Day” for Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber is probably wishing he could find a “Rewind” button on his week.

The pop star rolled on with his “Music Mondays” this week, releasing “Bad Day” on iTunes early this morning. It’s an appropriate title for a week that hasn’t been very kind to JB as his “Believe” tour swings through Brazil.

First there were the reports of the Biebz being carried out of a Rio brothel in bedsheets.

Then the Biebz gets whacked with a water bottle mid-performance during his São Paulo concert. #rude.

If all of that wasn’t enough, Katy Perry continues to walk on air as she dethrones Bieber as the most-followed Twitter personality. The Biebz took over the top spot from Lady Gaga earlier this year.

I don’t mean to state the obvious, but if you want to slip out of a sketch hangout, the last thing you should do is have an entourage of bodyguards carry you out wrapped in bedsheets like a corpse into a black Escalade. Thank God you put the sheets on or else we would have never known it was you!…said no one ever.

For now you can share his “Bad Day” with him:

Just in time for Christmas: Another Justin Bieber movie

Canada’s Fresh Prince of Stratford is releasing yet another movie. Did anyone else know this was happening, or are you still as confused as I am?

The Believe Facebook page was created earlier this month and features a pair of Youtube teasers for the film. The actual teaser itself reads, “There’s more to his story.”

A lot has indeed happened since the 2011 release of his first documentary “Never Say Never,” which took in $73 million at the box office. This proved to be a successful venture for the Biebz, comparing the film’s success to other music artists’ attempt to crack the box office. One Direction’s “This Is Us,” has taken in $29 million this year. Katy Perry’s 2012 “Part of Me,” followed close behind with $25 million, while “Glee the 3D Concert Movie” managed a meager $12 million in 2011.

Guessing from the teasers released thus far, the film looks to be very similar to its prequel: concert footage plus P.R.– masterminded vignettes showcasing how inspirational and genuine Justin is. Hopefully the film will address my one burning question: WHERE did the MONKEY come from?

I guess I’ll have to wait and see until Christmas Day. Best present ever!

Kanye being–well, Kanye


The “Yeezus” tour stopped in L.A. this week. After rocking two nights at Staples Center, Kanye West visited “On-Air with Ryan Seacrest” to chat with the entertainment guru. And what he said was…you be the judge.

“There’s no way Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be on the cover of Vogue. She’s like the most intriguing woman right now. She’s got Barbara Walters calling her like everyday.”

“Like I went anti-hit song on the “Yeezus” album. I know how to write hit songs, but I’m not interested in that particularly. I’m interested in design and helping the world.”

“…but because of the perception I was under after the Taylor Swift incident, the only way for me to somehow buy my affection of the public back, was to deliver an absolutely perfected product. So if you listen to “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”, that’s the closest thing to a perfected album. So it’s like, I know how to make perfection, I just don’t want to.” He followed up on the Taylor incident with, “You know what? I would not want some crazy drunk rockstar cutting my daughter off also. But, my daughter would 100% also be like, ‘Yes, Beyoncé did have the best video.’ That’s what my daughter would do!”

“What if you’re Gaudí and you know you’re the best architect and everyone is saying that you’re saying you’re the best architect the wrong way. The problem isn’t whether or not you are the best – it’s the way you’re saying it. People get really hung up on the way I word things. But I am the best. That’s the bottom line.”

“I drink Grey Goose. And I’m not getting paid anything from them, but I’m going to tell you as a man – and they said Shakespeare was like a drunk and yes, I said that to blatantly compare myself to Shakespeare.”

“And collectively, we’re the most influential with clothing. No one is looking at what [President] Obama is wearing. Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day.”

I’ll cap it at that. My only concern is that if he keeps name-dropping celebrated creative figures, he’s going to exhaust the list! I know he said fiancée Kim is the most intriguing personality right now, but I think he might be overlooking someone else, someone much…closer. I could listen to him talk all day. I really could.

P.S. I’d take Michelle Obama’s arms over Kim’s bottom asset any day. My point: say what you want, but don’t drag POTUS and FLOTUS into this. Untouchables.
