It’s official – Gwyneth Paltrow has been named People magazine’s Most Gorgeous Woman! She takes over the title from close friend Beyonce Knowles, who won the title last year. Jennifer Lawrence, Kerry Washington, and Zooey Deschanel also earned spots on the list.
Gwyneth has already had a fantastic start to the year, including her upcoming role in Iron Man 3 and her new cookbook, It’s All Excellent, which was released earlier this month. She has been busy on the press trail for Iron Man 3 over the past few weeks, attending premieres and doing promotions in Germany and the UK. Tonight, she’ll hit the red carpet with costar Robert Downey Jr. at the LA premiere of the new action flick.
Yet again, what was supposed to be a pleased, peaceful occasion has been marred by unnecessary and thoughtless violence.
During “4/20″ pot rally in Denver’s Civic Center Park yesterday, where over ten thousand stoners had gathered to celebrate the first year that marijuana is legalized for recreational use in the state of Colorado, multiple gunshots were fired, leaving three people and a dog injured, and countless others fleeing in terror.
According to local reporter Russell Haythorn, the crowd heard “four to five shots fired” around 5pm, while Lil’ Flip was performing, and a man and woman between 20-30, were shot in the leg, while a juvenile and dog belonging to one of the victims were both grazed.
According to 28-year-ancient attendee Travis Craig, who rushed to help a victim by using his belt to apply a tourniquet to his leg:
“I saw him fall, grabbing his leg. He was just screaming that he was in pain, and wanted to know where his girlfriend was. She was OK. And then the cops showed up real quick, like, less than a minute. They place him on ambulance and left.”
Police are now on the look-out for two suspects, described as a light-complexioned African American man, projected to be 6 feet tall and 180 pounds, who was wearing a gray hoodie, black pants and a blue Carolina baseball hat. The second was an African American man in a checkered black and white shirt.
Police spokesman Sonny Jackson says:
“Everybody in this world has a camera nowadays, so if anyone has any pictures that might help us, we’d like those as well.”
We just do not know what is going on in this country anymore.
For all of those people injured or affected in any way by this horrific event, you are in our thoughts and prayers.
We just hope authorities are able to quickly apprehend the individuals responsible, and they are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Well, he certainly would have been a part of an elite group of hotties!
But Ed Sheeran is only living in fantasy land, which is really fine with him because the rumor was more than exciting enough.
While Ed is honest about never having anything romantic going on with Taylor Swift, he did delight in some people believing a recent rumor about what went down when he stayed at her hotel room until the wee hours of the morning.
We just hope she loved it as much as he did. LOLz!
He revealed the truth about the innocent night:
“I did go to her hotel, I did stay there ’til four and I did leave in the same clothes. But I was playing her my new record. It was strictly that kind of thing. Literally, I went in there and we passed the guitar back and forth and played songs to each other.”
Like all excellent rumors, this one had people wondering, which more than blew Ed away as he thinks Swifty is a bit out of his league.
“And my mates are texting me being like ‘is it right?’ so I said it wasn’t but the fact that people can believe it makes me feel like a bit of a stud, you know? I’ve got to be honest because one of my best friends did date her. I’m not that kind of guy. But the fact that people believed it impressed me a small bit.”
Guess he’s learning the perks of being a rising star!
But we’re glad he’s honest and not taking advantage of it.
We’re sure it’ll be no time at all before he has an AH-Mazing and damn lucky girl on his arm!

We can reckon of 1,502 reasons as to why building a close replica and naming a ship the Titanic 2 is a terrible thought — and not just in terrible taste.
Those lives lost deserve much more than a gimmick boat named after the poorly plotted ship that killed them!
Clive Palmer, the guy building the thing, disagrees and says the replica will look and feel just like the original Titanic… out of respect! Here’s what he says:
“The area [for] passengers will be authentic, with the same design and facilities. But there will be modern things such as air conditioning and other features we are debating — such as Internet on the ship. [It's a] tribute to the spirit of the men and women who worked on the original Titanic.”
Still, they’re claiming 40,000 have expressed interest in a re-enactment of the fateful journey — up until a point, of course — which will repeat the original course from Southampton, England, to New York.
Like we said, we feel like this has less to do with being a tribute than it does with being a gimmick, and we find it wildly uncomfortable and borderline offensive!
Plus, the superstitious side of us really hope nothing dreadful happens again! If it does, let’s hope they have wider doors so Jack can fit too!

We cannot even start to express our heartache over this.
The Brazilian city of Santa Maria was home to an unspeakable tragedy last night, when a fire broke out in the Boate Kiss nightclub around 2:00 in the morning and took the lives of at least 245 people, many of whom were college students.
According to reports, the blaze is thought to be related to a pyrotechnics show going on at the time, as the acoustic insulation inside of the building caught first. The majority of people who lost their lives either died from smoke inhalation or were trampled to death trying to escape, as the club is known to hold up to 3,000 people on the weekends and there were no visible exit signs.
The President of Brazil, Dilma Roussef, has left a summit she was attending in Chile to be with the people of Santa Maria, and says in a statement:
“The Brazilian people are the ones who need me today. I want to tell the people of Santa Maria in this time of sadness that we are all together.”
And we, here in the United States, uphold that sentiment.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends, and loved ones of those who were lost, as well as those who endured the terror of the blaze and now must struggle to know what happened and come to grips with surviving such an unspeakable trauma.
We are all together with you.

Courteney Cox graced the cover of the very first issue of New You magazine, which hit newsstands today. The actress showed skin within the pages, posing seductively on a couch with only a blanket covering her backside. In an interview with the publication, Courteney opened up about the antiaging treatments she’s tried and her relationship with ex-husband David Arquette. Courteney is busy promoting the new season of Cougar Town, which debuts on Tuesday on TBS. Check out more from Courteney Cox in New You:
- On doing antiaging treatments: “You know what, I’m game for anything. I’m very open to trying to prolong the inevitable . . . I’m a huge laser believer; I really reckon they are the wave of the future. I just did Ulthera, which is supposed to produce collagen. And I’m about to do Fraxel, which will get rid of all these brown spots off my arms, chest, and face.”
- On the pressures of Hollywood: “There’s so many gorgeous people and there’s so much pressure you place on yourself but David [Arquette] has always said to me, ‘You’ve got to accept we’re all gonna age and just do it gracefully. And the sooner you accept, the simpler your life is.’”
- On her favorite red carpet moments: “My favorite red carpet moment that I’ve ever had was when I was nominated for a Golden Globe. I was wearing a really tight and gorgeous Victoria Beckham dress. Genevieve did my makeup and Chris McMillan did my hair. But it literally was one of those days where Chris goes, ‘Okay, I’m going to Jen’s house, I’ll be back.’ He literally came and just place in two clips and that was it – gorgeous. I was also Tracy Anderson Methoded out. I remember it was raining, and David was really sweet, he was holding an umbrella for me. That was a excellent time.”
Well, that’s embarrassing!
Musical and television lovers world-wide had a like-despise relationship with the first season of Smash.
Part of the fun of watching the confused musical drama was complaining and joking about it with social media. Everyone knew that – or at least, everyone except the show’s executive producer Steven Spielberg.
Steve, who came up with the whole thought for the show and pitched it to NBC exec Bob Greenblatt, had know thought people were laughing at his precious show.
When questioned if he knew about Smash‘s social media phenomenon, the Lincoln director admitted: “No I didn’t.”
Mildly heartbroken (we’re guessing), Steve added:
“Well here’s what’s fantastic about Smash: it’s not a procedural. It’s not medical. It’s not cops. It’s not legal eagles. It isn’t a sitcom. So it does defy what is commercial and well loved today. But that’s what Bob Greenblatt wanted to do when he came in and was offered NBC. He wanted to take his cable sensibility and bring it to network television and I reckon he’s succeeding admirably.”
He did indeed!
At least Greenblatt seems aware of his slip ups. NBC has chose to really reboot the Smash going into it’s second season.
Apparently, Mr.Lauer is super depressed because ever since the whole Ann Curry debacle, random strangers are constantly harassing him on the street.
One insider claims that people are yelling abuses like:
“You’re a terrible guy. You got Ann fired. Does that make you pleased?”
AND Matt has also seemingly experienced the coldest of shoulders from his fellow Today show workers ever since news broke about his $ 25 million a year salary!
Well, it makes us sad that Matt is apparently in the eat-a-pint-of-ice cream stage of depression…
But karma IS the trickiest of mistresses and Matt has apparently been somewhat of an ass to his Today show peeps for YEARS!
And hey, it’s never to late to start spreading the kindness!

The stars may be aligning for these stars, and we couldn’t be more thrilled!!!
Jessica Chastain has been offered a role in Marcus Sakey’s novel Excellent People.
If that happened then the amazingly talented actress would join hottie James Franco in this fascinating flick, which is about:
“A couple in debt from fertility treatments steals a stash of cash from their dead tenant’s apartment, putting them in jeopardy from criminals and police in search of the money.”
The two of these stars in that would be just purrfect.
Please say yes, Jessica, PLEASE!!!
You were so excellent in Zero Dark Thirty, and we just know you’ll be so excellent in this!!!

It looks like Today just isn’t Matt Lauer’s day!
According to an NBC insider, the Today show’s new exec producer Alexandra Wallace is downsizing the host’s role on the show. The source says:
“Matt’s on air reporting and interviews for the TODAY show are going to be cut back because Alexandra recognizes that he is widely unpopular and many view him to be responsible for Ann Curry being fired from the co-host spot.”
Oh, come one! This isn’t a popularity contest!
It is? Oh! Well, in that case carry on. The source says:
“This isn’t personal, but Alexandra will be doing whatever is necessary to get the show back in first place, even if that means ruffling Lauer’s feathers.
Look for Willie Geist, one of the co-hosts of the third hour, to be featured more during the first two hours of the show because viewers absolutely like him. Willie comes across as genuine and warm, unlike Matt Lauer.”
It’s a excellent thing NBC doesn’t have a track record of backing the incorrect horse *cough*Chevy Chase*cough* and firing people audiences like *cough*Conan O’Brien*cough*. People might reckon it was a trend…
Kristen Wiig deserves 1000 honesty points and box of prunes for her constipated confession!
Last night, as the Bridesmaids star was honored at Elle’s Women in Hollywood, Kristen got up to make her speech and told to the all the guests in the banquet hall at Four Seasons in Beverly Hills:
“I do want to say something from the heart, something really kind of serious and truthful,” she said after Judd Apatow introduced her. “I have not pooped in four days—four days! I’ve been travelling. I’m nervous. I’m getting concerned. I’m wearing a tight dress.”
As her speech continued the Wiigster took a more serious turn. She got a small choked up when she started speaking about her writing partner, Annie Mumolo.
Misty-eyed, she confessed:
“I’m getting emotional because I’m drinking champagne.”
Then, looking down at her backed up tummy she added:
“It’s like, ‘Drink alcohol! Get it moving.’”
Guess she can’t be serious for too long!
We LIKE Kristen’s candidness!
Not a lot of ladies have the balls to drop a huge’ol potty joke like that at in such a fancy setting. But then again, not every lady wrote a movie were a bride takes a poo in the middle of the street! HA!

Hey Twihard parents! Stephenie Meyer is disturbed by you!
The Twilight author is really weirded out that the name she gave Bella and Edwards’ small hybrid has become a baby name trend.
Possibly because human parents can’t attack and kill everyone for making fun of their kid’s ridiculous name!
In an interview with EW Stephenie clarifies her strong opinion on the subject:
“I am someone who strongly believes in reality, and that you don’t monkey around with people’s names. Whether they become a stripper or a lawyer has a large part to do with the name you give them. I would never name a real child Renesmee. But in fantasy, you can name your characters anything you want. I couldn’t have named [Bella and Edward's] child Lindsay. I couldn’t have named her anything that already exists-it would have felt incorrect. I had to pick a name that I felt was completely and really unique, which opens you up to heckling. Which I’ve taken. I take all my heckling, and I really get it!”
AND she really understands if you wanted to ridicule a real life child with that name!
Her response to the fact that non-emortal people have are naming their baby girls after Bella and Edward’s small vamp:
“That really disturbs me.”
There you have it!
Sorry Twis, the woman who invented the name says you’re not allowed to use it.
But look on the bright side — you can still name your kid Katniss if you want! LOLz!
