BEYONCE & JAY Z Step Out For ‘Justice For Trayvon’ Rally

Police Headquarters NY

Beyonce and Jay Z made a rare public outing yesterday in New York City. They attended the ‘Justice For Trayvon’ rally in New York City. I don’t know if either Beyonce or Jay Z spoke at the rally. I’m sure their presence meant a lot to the people in New York, however.

The goal was to hold 100 rallies in 100 cities across America. USA Today reports more than 100 cities held rallies. Judging from the pictures in the gallery, Beyonce and Jay Z did take time to shake hands with other attendees.

NICOLE KIDMAN Sparkles For ‘Cinema For Peace’

Nicole Kidman Attends 'Cinema For Peace' Dinner in Berlin

Nicole Kidman was, as usual, elegant on the red carpet (unfortunately, the person she’s posing with is not identified). The actress attended the ‘Cinema for Peace‘ dinner at Soho House in Berlin. Nicole opted for a beaded dress for the event.

LOVE that dress with those earrings. Nicole did an amazing job with accessorizing here. No one could accuse her of going overboard: just the earrings and pumps. Nicole is just the epitome of elegance, isn’t she?



Hot Guy Of The Day USHER

Usher Lights The Empire State Building

Usher was all smiles yesterday as he lit up the Empire State Building. He did the honors as part of the 4th of July celebrations in New York City yesterday. Usher always seems so upbeat and vibrant: I bet he’s a great celebrity for events like this! It’s a big part of what makes him HAWT.

I wonder if he’s worrying about his protege, Justin Bieber, in private? Justin’s having some very public, um, growing pains. Usher has pointed out that Justin is “young” and he hopes “he’ll continue to mature.” I’m sure all of you are hoping for just that! Hopefully Justin will do so before his career crumbles.

JENNIFER LOPEZ Apologizes After Performing For Controversial Leader

Jennifer Lopez Leaving The W Hotel

Jennifer Lopez should’ve given Hilary Swank a call. Hilary came under fire after being a paid guest at the birthday concert for Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov in 2011. Now Jennifer is apologizing after for singing “Happy Birthday” to Turkmenistan leader Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow at a non-political event hosted by the China National Petroleum Corp. The Turkmenistan leader has been cited for significant human rights abuses. Jennifer’s rep said:

“Had there been knowledge of human rights issues any kind, Jennifer would not have attended.”

Apparently the request that Jennifer sing happy birthday was made at the last minute, while she was backstage. I just have to ask; do these ladies need the money that badly?



MILEY CYRUS Wowing The Crowd At ‘Mackapoolooza’

Miley Cyrus & Calvin Harris Perform At 'Mackapoolooza' In Miami

Miley Cyrus looks like she was genuinely enjoying herself up on stage at ‘Mackapoolooza’ in Miami! You can tell the crowd enjoyed watching her perform. Miley’s clearly ready to take the music world by storm. I predict a BIG tour for summer 2014 for Miley.

Are you glad to see Miley return to music? From a career perspective, I think it’s smart for her to stay diversified. Miley had some high performing movies, but her last two movies (‘So Undercover’ and ‘LOL’) didn’t get any attention upon release. Were they even released into theaters? Anyway, careers in the entertainment industry can cool off on a dime, so I think the more projects an entertainer has out there, the more likely they are to have career longevity. What do you think?



NICOLE SCHERZINGER Fashion Frenzy At 2013 Music Summer Festival

The 2013 Music Summer Festival

Nicole Scherzinger rocked the stage at the 2013 Music Summer Festival at the Italia Roma Piazza del Popolo in Rome, Italy. The former Pussycat Doll looks like she put her heart into her performance up there! What about Nicole’s stage outfits, however?

The dresses look great. I’m not sold on the striped trousers she wore while singing with Eros Ramazzotti. They’re a little too reminiscent of pajama bottoms for me. Well, two out of three is a good rate! Are you a fan?




Val & Maks Chmerkovskiy 'Get Lathered Up' For Oil Of Olay

TGIF! Let’s make Friday a little hotter with some HAWT pro dancers. Here’s former ‘Dancing with the Stars‘ pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy with his brother, Val, who’s still on the celebrity dancing competition show. Maksim and Val (short for Valentin) showed us why we should “Get Lathered Up” for Oil of Olay. (And no, I didn’t make that up: the event was called “Get Lathered Up” for Oil of Olay  ;-).)

I have to say, Maks and Val are PERFECT salesmen for this product. Who isn’t ready to get lathered up with these two? Let me stop. This is a family blog, after all. I’m sure the moms out there get my point – LOL. In case you need some help telling the brothers apart, Maks is wearing the white t-shirt while Val is wearing the black one. I’ll leave it up to you to tell them apart shirtless.
