Rihanna Pushes Instagram’s Limits with Topless Image

Rihanna topless

Rihanna got in trouble with Instagram for posting her nipple-exposing cover of French magazine Lui. Who cares about the boobies? What she really needs to be scolded for is that bucket hat.

Olivia Munn and Joel Kinnaman (my favourite celebrity couple that I kept forgetting existed) have split up.

-Damn. I usually hate giant diamond rings but George Clooney did Amal Alamuddin a solid with this emerald cut 7-carat sparkler.

Zac Efron opens up about joining AA and that fight on Skid Row in The Hollywood Reporters’ new cover story. Hmmm…

Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley are adorbs on the new EW cover. Practise pronouncing his name; that guy is going to be huge.

-In an upcoming episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, Jennifer Lawrence reportedly reveals that she was so drunk at the Oscars that she puked on the stairs at Madonna’s after-party and Miley Cyrus chided her. It’s not a good sign when Miley is the sober one…

-Meanwhile, Miley‘s health crisis rages on, forcing her to reschedule another concert. At what point are we allowed to be legitimately concerned?

-Esquire wrote an article about why Anna Kendrick should take over the Late Late Show’s hosting gig, and she retweeted it and then commented on it. Does that mean she’s unofficially throwing her hat in the ring? ‘Cause she’d be awesome at it.

-I really liked this interview with Colin Hanks, especially the part where Method Man approaches him in the middle of it and he gets all flustered. “God, when Method Man says hello to you, everything goes right out the door. Sorry.”

Patton Oswalt and Billy Eichner play a game called “Does Shakira Know What This Is?,” which is as great as it sounds.

Andrew Garfield’s SNL promos are super promising and make me wish he’d do improv in the future.

Matt Bomer is coming to Toronto to premiere HBO’s The Normal Heart here. Time to dig out my stalking shoes…

Gwyneth Paltrow won’t be attending this year’s MET Gala — but because of scheduling issues, not because she totally slammed it last year.

Beyoncé sent 90 white roses to the family of one of her biggest fans in Australia, who died of leukemia at 15.

Naya Rivera‘s rep denied reports that she was fired from Glee over bad behavior and a feud with Lea Michele. Word has it her character is supposed to share a big number with Mercedes and Brittany in the May 13 finale, so we’ll soon see.

Baz Luhrmann is in talks to do an Elvis biopic, because duh.

James Franco, maybe this isn’t the best time to admit you made out with an underage Lindsay Lohan. Just sayin’.

-I’m actually really surprised that the 10-year anniversary of Mean Girls was such a big deal today. I mean, I love that movie, but wow. I also agree with this assessment that Lohan wasn’t as amazing in it as everyone lets on.

Diane Keaton proved on Fallon last night that she has no idea how to play beer pong — and it was adorable.

DL Hughley’s defense of Columbus Short is so very, very gross.

-When I saw this photo of Zoe Saldana I thought “who is that Jared Leto-meets-Jesus poser she’s with?” Turns out that’s her husband.

Lupita Nyong’o may not have made the Star Wars cut, but she’s doing ok. She’ll  be presenting at the CFDA Fashion Awards and attending the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. Now if only she could line up her next big role…

-I dig this article on why John Boyega should be the hero of the new Star Wars movie. I also like this one about whether or not a cool actor can survive the franchise with his cred in tact.

-Today, Seattle police released images of a note that Kurt Cobain kept in his wallet calling Courtney Love a “bitch with zits.”

Selena Gomez‘s camp wants you to know that she’s just friends with Orlando Bloom, ok?!

-Chuck alum Yvonne Strahovsky is taking over your TV set, one show at a time.

Louis CK swears he didn’t know that Letterman was actually going to retire when he made those episodes about it.

-These sketches of what Mad Men characters will look like in the ’80s are perfection. Also wonderful: someone wrote a song about every Mad Men final tracking shot.

Vincent Kartheiser says his friends call him Fruity Lavender, which is how we all should refer to him from now on.

Hugh Jackman is pretty sure he’s only got one more Wolverine movie in him.

-What new f**kery is this? The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has a post-credits sequence you can only watch on your phone.

Danny Strong will be making his directorial debut with a J.D. Salinger biopic. I’m so proud of our lil’ Jonathan!

-I never really understand how fans are willing to pay over $100 for “photo opps” with stars at conventions, but all the pics with the Being Human cast from last weekend’s Calgary Expo may be changing my mind. I love how they weren’t afraid to get uber-close to the fansor each other.

-Here’s the first trailer of Halle Berry as an astronaut in her CBS summer series.

Ellen Page’s Talks Coming Out in Flare

Ellen page Flare

-I usually hate it when women look like they forgot their shirt on magazine covers (“Oh dear, would you look at that bare bra? Silly me!”), but Ellen Page manages to own it on the latest issue of Flare. The interview is great, too.

Will and Kate‘s third wedding anniversary was dampened by news that Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas have split.

Emma Stone did a lip sync battle with Jimmy Kimmel last night. I was worried about her chances when she started with a Blues Traveller song, but then she KILLED it on “All I Do Is Win” by DJ Khaled. This is John Kransinski-levels of lip sync awesomeness!

-Speaking of DJ Khaled, his new track features Jay Z (possibly) talking trashing Drake.

Miley Cyrus‘ story about her health scare doesn’t really add up. Since when do antibiotics cure a flu virus?

-There have been lots of rumours floating around about Lea Michele feuding with Glee costar Naya Rivera (and possibly sleeping with her ex-finacé). Now comes rumours that Naya has been fired from the show.

Cameron Diaz can’t wait to get her hands on Drew Barrymore’s new kidlet.

-Meanwhile, Cameron revealed she’s “been with a lady” in the bedroom. Shh, sweetie. Your movie is already No. 1 at the box office. You can stop selling now.

-Grab something sturdy and hang on tight: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will be married by the end of the week.

-Here’s everything you ever wanted to know about George Clooney’s fiancée, Amal Alamuddin. Excuse me while I go eat my weight in ice cream.

-We finally have a trailer for In Your Eyes, the film Joss Whedon Beyonce-released on us last week.

Keira Knightley‘s trick for fooling music snobs into thinking she has cred: mention krautrock.

-I loved Belle when I saw it at TIFF and I think Gugu Mbatha-Raw as the potential to be a huge star, so I can’t fathom what led her to wear this at her first big premiere. Hate the colour, hate the fit, hate the material.

Miranda Kerr is boobalicious on the cover of Vogue Taiwan.

-Promising: Yahoo! ordered a new space sitcom from the creator of Freaks and Geeks.

This photo of the first table read with the cast from Star Wars Episode VII just made the interwebs asplode. The new cast members include Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson and Max von Sydow. Despite a worrying lack of ladies, there’s some good here (I’ve been waiting for Boyega to hit it big since Attack the Block). I am bummed that the rumoured casting of Jesse Plemons or Lupita Nyong’o didn’t pan out, but on the flip side, no Zac Efron (despite — or maybe because of — his hints to the contrary).

-Meanwhile, Seth Rogen says he was surprised to discover that Neighbors costar Zac Efron wasn’t “a little f–ker.”

-This is why I will never, ever unfollow Ewan McGregor on Instagram.

-What a mess: Rumour has it the Weinsteins might ditch Nicole Kidman’s Grace of Monaco before its Cannes premiere.

Craig Ferguson announced his departure from The Late Late Show. He later explained that it had nothing to do with not getting Letterman‘s spot, and that he seriously considered leaving two years ago. Watch his brief farewell announcement here.

Chrissy Teigen gives me yet another reason to be skeezed out by airplane blankets.

-Chanel released a behind-the-scenes video from Kristen Stewart’s new campaign. I kind of hate all the looks, but I do like that she calls Karl Lagerfeld “an incredibly creative and voracious liver.” Wut?

Robert Pattinson dropped out of a film because of scheduling issues and a lack of prep time.

-Perfect human being John Green talked about Shailene Woodley’s audition for The Fault In Our Stars: “I watched and it was perfect. It was Hazel. She sounded like Hazel.”

David Arquette just welcomed a baby boy named Charlie West.

Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler are adorable in the trailer for their rom-com parody They Came Together. It’s from the Wet Hot American Summer crew so I’m down.

Lena Headey calls that funeral sex scene from GoT “a controversial moment” and “very messy,” but she seems to be leaning towards the consensual side.

Blake Shelton tweeted Adam Levine’s number cause they’re wacky like that.

-Here are the first images from Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, Lost River. Freaky!

-I remain in shock and disbelief how much the Godzilla trailers make me want to see this thing. Damn you, Cranston!

Mila Kunis Flashes Her Bare Baby Bump

-Pregnant Mila Kunis wore a midriff-baring top to Stagecoach (Coachella’s country counterpart), but I was too distracted trying to figure out what the hell Ashton Kutcher was wearing to look for a belly bump.

-Oh god, are Selena Gomez and Orlando Bloom hooking up? I think my brain just threw up a little.

-Avengers assemble! (For dinner!) Robert Downey Jr.tweeted a photo of himself, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, Joss Whedon, Scarlett Johansson and others grabbing a meal in Richmond, CA.

Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher were all spotted in London as the new Star Wars movie is about to being filming.

-Newlyweds Leighton Meester and Adam Brody are just the cutest!

Amal Alamuddin‘s law firm confirmed her engagement to George Clooney by releasing a congratulatory statement.  She really does have all the power in this relationship, doesn’t she? As Lainey notes, George is the Bridget Jones to Amal’s Mark Darcy.

Clooney‘s dad says the family is “thrilled” by the news, while his mom calls Amal “a lovely girl.”

Jared Leto says his Oscar is already “a filthy mess.”

-The Other Woman proved to be irresistible at the box office, greatly surpassing expectations and bumping Captain America from the No. 1 spot. It looks terrible but I’m happy for Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who had a rough week last week.

-Not that people seem to be disgusted by his character’s antics; last night’s GoT earned series high ratings.

-Speaking of last night’s TV, John Oliver’s new show debuted. If you missed it, HBO just put the entire first episode on YouTube.

-The trailer HBO aired last night for The Leftovers looked really, really good. I’m still worried that this show is going to focus on solving the mystery in a way the book didn’t, but I’m optimistic.

Matt LeBlanc resurrected Friends’ “smell the fart acting” on the Graham Norton Show.

-As bad as the HIMYM finale was, it actually could have been worse. A funeral scene for the mother was cut because it was “just too gut-wrenching.”

Chris Martin takes the blame for his conscious uncoupling from Gwyneth Paltrow in his BBC interview with Zane Lowe.

-The new tUnE-yArDs album is streaming on Pitchfork right now and it’s fantastic!

Tori Spelling was secretly hospitalized for six days (footage coming soon to a TV near you!).

Keira Knightley cannot get enough of this Chanel silhouette. I don’t think the pale waist works as well as the black one did.

Beyoncé talks about the pressure to look perfect in a behind-the-scenes clip from her “Pretty Hurts” music video.

Sarah Silverman just signed on to play a lady lover in Masters of Sex. I guess dating the show’s star has its perks.

-Well, this is unexpected: Paul Simon and his wife, singer Edie Brickell, have been arrested on disorderly conduct charges following a “family dispute.”

Victoria Beckham celebrated her 40th birthday over the weekend with the other Spice Girls (minus Scary).

-Speaking of reunions, Brian Baumgartner (Kevin from The Office) got married and Jenna Fischer, Angela Kinsey, John Krasinski and Oscar Nunez were there.

-Emily Blunt was also there, looking crazy skinny just 10 weeks after giving birth.

Kimye’s Vogue cover continues to break sales records. Sigh.

-Photos of Elisabeth Moss and Jon Hamm hanging out together in NYC make me stupidly happy.

-Prepared to feel old: Teen Witch was released 25 years ago today. In a new interview, star (and sister to Blake) Robyn Lively talks about the movie and how it’s been hard to Top That.

Jessica Chastain is rumored to be joining Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible 5, which seems like an oddly generic career choice for her.

Some new clips have been released from Elizabeth Banks‘ Walk of Shame. I didn’t know Gillian Jacobs was in this, which makes it way more promising.

-I know this video is basically just a big ad for Smirnoff, but it features Alison Brie and Adam Scott being cute so I’ll allow it.

-Speaking of Adam Scott, Parks and Rec’s next season will be “gentle sci-fi” which sounds terrifying.

-Fox will broadcast a three-hour live version of Grease, for some godawful reason. I’m guessing the cast will include a lot of Glee alums.

-Speaking of Glee stars, I’m surprised that Dianna Agron and Carey Mulligan are friends.

-The second trailer for The Fault in Our Stars is here and it’s way, way better than the first, IMO.
