LA Times: "Britney's "Piece Of Me" Vegas Show Demonstrates Only Loss"



LAS VEGAS -- The show is called “Piece of Me,” and that’s exactly what it delivers -- no more, no less.

Clad in a version of the bedazzled bodysuit she wore a decade ago in the video for her song “Toxic,” Britney Spears launched her much-discussed two-year residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino by emerging from a giant metal globe suspended over the stage of the Axis Theater. “Work Bitch,” the lead single from her latest album, thumped through the venue’s booming sound system as an army of masked dancers marched around her. Smoke swirled, fans hoisted miniature bottles of Moët & Chandon.

For a few tantalizing moments Friday night, Spears -- the one-time teen-pop queen who’s spent much of the last few years inching back from the brink -- seemed ready to reclaim her once-vivid form. Then the bubble burst.


Scheduled to run through 2015, with Spears playing approximately 50 shows a year at the 4,600-seat Axis, “Piece of Me” represents a potential pivot point for the singer and the state of entertainment on the Las Vegas Strip.

For Spears, 32, the steady gig promises a path out of the turmoil and disappointment that have surrounded her since 2007, when she attacked a paparazzo’s car with an umbrella after shaving her head at a Tarzana salon.

Though Spears’ personal life appears to have stabilized, her career is still hurting: This month her album “Britney Jean” opened with the lowest sales of the singer’s 15-year career; it sits at No. 27 on the Billboard 200, well behind records by Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus, both of whom showed up Friday night as a sign of respect to a trailblazer.

Filling the Axis, the thinking seems to go, might restore some of Spears’ luster without her having to engage in direct competition with her younger successors.

We Saw 'Wolf Of Wall Street' With A Bunch Of Wall Street Dudes And It Was Disturbing


Tucked behind the Goldman Sachs building at 200 West Street, the Regal Battery Park theater was a fitting venue for last night's free advanced screening of "The Wolf of Wall Street," Martin Scorsese's highly-anticipated biopic about '90s-era pump-and-dump charlatan Jordan Belfort.

Disturbing: Belfort's decadence.

Equally disturbing: the finance-heavy audience's gleeful reaction to his behavior and legal wrongdoings.

Anthony Kiedis & Son At Laker Game. Model Girlfriend Comments On 31 Year Age Difference.



Anthony Kiedis and his son Everly, 6, spent Christmas Day together at the Lakers vs Miami Heat game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ frontman stopped to chat with the police before heading inside.



Kiedis’ 20-year-old girlfriend Helena Vestergaard wasn’t seen with them. Helena – who lives with the 51-year-old rocker in L.A. – recently confessed her love for him.

The Australian model told Confidential, “I’m not an ageist. You can’t help who you fall in love with.”

She added, “We’re both happy and that’s good. It’s strange. It’s nothing like I’ve ever experienced, but I’m getting used to it.”

Beyoncé Responds to Challenger Audio Controversy


Beyoncé has been labeled "insensitive" by some current and former NASA astronauts and their families for sampling audio from the space shuttle Challenger disaster for a love song off her newly released album.
Challenger exploded 73 seconds after liftoff from the Kennedy Space Center Jan. 28, 1986. All seven crewmembers aboard were killed.

"Flight controllers here looking very carefully at the situation. Obviously a major malfunction," now-retired NASA public affairs officer Steve Nesbitt said as the nation watched wreckage fall toward the ocean on live television.

Twenty-seven years later, Nesbitt's voice is heard at the beginning of the video for Beyoncé's new song "XO," about a troubled relationship. The singer has said that "XO" was written and produced by Ryan Tedder and Terius Nash, who goes by the stage name The Dream.
The audio clip is short, lasting six seconds.

Beyonce, in an exclusive statement to ABC News this morning, said, "My heart goes out to the families of those lost in the Challenger disaster. The song 'XO' was recorded with the sincerest intention to help heal those who have lost loved ones and to remind us that unexpected things happen, so love and appreciate every minute that you have with those who mean the most to you.
"The songwriters included the audio in tribute to the unselfish work of the Challenger crew with hope that they will never be forgotten."

Watch Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell Try Improv With Ben Schwartz and Lauren Lapkus

Traditional long-form improv, like that which happens at improvOlympic and Upright Citizens Brigade, has consistently struggled to find a home on TV. So, House of Lies Live might be the only time you'll see it for a while. Executive produced by Ben Schwartz, the half-hour program joins improv newbies Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell with make-'em-up veterans Schwartz, Josh Lawson, Lauren Lapkus, Ryan Gaul, and Eugene Cordero (all seven appear in House 0f Lies season three). It's scheduled to air on Showtime tomorrow night at 10 p.m. Don't worry if you have New Year's Eve plans, as you can watch it in full below. Also, don't worry if you don't have New Year's plans, guys, something super cool will come up. We promise. This is no house of lies.

I was at the live tapings for this. They taped two hours of improv and distilled it down to 25 minutes or so for this special, so it's a little choppier than a show would usually be, but it's still fun. They are all great at improv. There are bleeps in this version, but if you watch it on Showtime starting tomorrow, there will be no bleeps!

Miley Cyrus is edgy in case you forgot: p!nk mohawk, compares herself to Madonna, etc


Miley Cyrus sports a pink mohawk on the cover of Love magazine’s latest issue!

The 21-year-old singer recently opened up to The New York Times about how she is a visual artist and compared herself to Madonna.


“I went from people just thinking I was, like, a baby to people thinking I’m this, like, sex freak that really just pops molly and does lines all day. It’s like, ‘Has anyone ever heard of rock ’n’ roll?’ There’s a sex scene in pretty much every single movie, and they go, ‘Well, that’s a character.’ Well, that’s a character. I don’t really dress as a teddy bear and, like, twerk on Robin Thicke, you know?” Miley said.

“Last night, I was talking about some Madonna performances, and I said, ‘At some point, everything becomes irrelevant.’ Like, no one even thinks about when she did ‘Like a Virgin’ at the V.M.A.s. That just becomes a standard, where it’s just like, ‘Oh, that’s her thing.’ So, I feel like now that I did the V.M.A.s, that just kind of became a standard for me, and then anytime I do anything else, they’re like, ‘Miley kept it tame tonight,’” she added.

Legend Giorgio Moroder On Dance Music's Present And Future

giorgio_wide-a4a39dbca1cb3d0b7c6e79b8551d38907f07147e-s40-c85

If Donna Summer was the Queen of Disco, then it's fair to say her king was Giorgio Moroder. The Italian-born producer presided over some of her biggest hits, including "I Feel Love" and "Love to Love You Baby" – and pioneered electronic dance music in the process.

Four decades into a career that also includes award-winning work in cinema, with scores for Midnight Express and American Gigolo, Moroder is still going as strong as the beat in his songs. Among other projects this year, he collaborated with one of the biggest names in dance music, Daft Punk. The Grammy-nominated French duo invited Moroder into the studio — not to push buttons and twist knobs, but to narrate his own life.

"I was talking for three hours in a studio in Paris. I said, 'What are you going to do with it?' But they didn't give me any clue," Moroder says. "I went back to the same studio last summer, where Florian Laggata, the engineer, was working. And I said, 'Okay, you know the song — you've heard it, because you recorded it. What did they do with my voice?' He said, 'I cannot tell you.' And I said, 'But you can at least tell me: Is it a good song?'"
The song became "Giorgio By Moroder," an audio mini-memoir set to a pulsing disco groove on Daft Punk's 2013 smash Random Access Memories.

Henry Cavill and Gina Carano Dating Again: Couple Spending Holidays Together

1
Henry Cavill had a fantastic 2013, at least in regards to his career. He launched a billion dollar franchise with Man of Steel, and his career has been on fire ever since. Well, on fire might be stretching it, but he’s certainly not hurting for jobs. But what about his personal life? He was with Gina Carano at the beginning of this year, and as far we know, up until the Man of Steel promotion.

Then, some weird hocus pocus happened and he ended up with Kaley Cuoco, seemingly right after he broke up with Gina. Their relationship was a ridiculously transparent PR ploy, so much so that practically every news outlet started calling them out on it. They would have public announcements about the status of their relationship in People, and staged photo-ops in parks and grocery stores. And for what, exactly? I don’t know whose advice Henry was taking, but it sure as heck wasn’t good advice. All this whole mess did was make him the laughingstock of the media, especially with that farce of a relationship.

But you know, he recovered. He realized that he screwed up and went away for a long while, concentrating on his work and… getting back together with Gina? According to reports, Henry was spotted in Salt Lake City the other day shopping at a sports store, and Gina was with him. Preceding that, both Henry and Gina were photographed looking quite cozy in Rome while Henry was shooting a film there in the fall. I’d say the two are definitely back together, although I’m left wondering how Gina took him back so quickly after that mess with Kaley.

And speaking of Kaley Cuoco, what’s going on with her? She’s engaged to that new tennis player, and she’s rumored to be pregnant. FYI, she got together with this tennis player less than a month after breaking up with Henry – and she dated Henry for two weeks. All I’m saying is – the timing’s weird.

How Britney Spears Could Change Las Vegas Forever



LAS VEGAS — Las Vegas has traditionally been a place where pop stars go to retire. Legacy acts like Elton John and Shania Twain no longer light up the radio like they used to, but they have a loyal and aging fan base that’s reached its peak earning years and can afford to travel to a show instead of waiting for a show to come to them.

Britney Spears’ fans are still paying off their student loans.

Britney: Piece of Me opened its two-year run Friday at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, and marks the first time a pop star born during the Reagan administration has headlined a multiyear Las Vegas residency.

“Britney’s always been a trailblazer and it makes sense that she would take this on,” the show’s director Baz Halpin told BuzzFeed.

Halpin said he believes Spears could change the stigma surrounding Las Vegas residencies for younger recording artists.

Mandy Moore is a Domestic Goddess in a Prius



Mandy Moore was named by Who What Wear as one of the Biggest 50 Style Stars of 2013, alongside fashionistas such as Alexa Chung and Miranda Kerr.

But on Friday the 29-year-old looked style-free as she picked up basic household supplies at Whole Foods in Los Feliz. The actress was almost unrecognizable in ripped jeans, and white T-shirt and unbrushed copper colored locks as she ambled into her Prius.

The Candy singer was seen lugging two bags of goods - one red and one green - and a large supply of bathroom tissue as well as a fire engine red purse. Her snake print sneakers were her only accessory that screamed celebrity.

Her domestic side has likely blossomed a bit more since her marriage to Ryan Adams, whom she wed in March 2009 in Savannah, Georgia.

Zayn Malik wins GQ's Best-Dressed reader's vote

It's all change this year on GQ.co.uk's annual reader-voted best-dressed list: two separate Time Lords, one of the country's leading male models, the most stylish judge on The X Factor and the nattiest Hobbit in the entire shire are all conspicuous in their absence. This year's top ten - generated by over 155,000 votes - features no fewer than four members of the world's biggest boyband. But before you despair at the levels of One Direction fandom, consider this: isn't it fantastic that we now have a British pop act that a grown man can take sartorial inspiration from without embarrassment?

Here are the reader's choices...


1. Zayn Malik
In a sea of generic monochrome suiting on the red carpet, Malik stands alone. He was an early adopter of the bold bomber-jacket trend, wears camo with the casual ease of a Territorial Army foot soldier and is possibly the only person on earth who can get away with a dark shirt under a dark suit at an awards show. No wonder he was the first member of One Direction to get engaged...

Ariana Grande covers Cosmopolitan


Welcome to the wild world of Ariana Grande. One of the hottest up-and-comers in music right now, thanks to the smash-hit success of her debut album, Yours Truly, Grande's been sent around the globe in order to promote it, zipping through Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, New York, and Japan in a matter of weeks.

In Amsterdam, Grande was mobbed by fans when she tried to make her way through the airport. "I never want to be the person who avoids my own fans, so I always try to stop and say hi," she says. "But it turned into a big mosh of people, and it became quite dangerous. I got sent to the police station, and they told me not to come back to that airport!" Later, so many fans camped out to see the singer that the manager of her hotel dubbed Grande a safety risk and forbade her from going out on her balcony to wave to them. "I just went out anyway," she says. "I said, 'You can't stop me!' That's one thing to get in trouble for: loving your fans too much."

Dwyane Wade Is a Father Again! (And It's Not Gabrielle's Baby)



NBA star Dwyane Wade recently spent time with his new baby boy he fathered with a woman while on a break with now-fiancée Gabrielle Union, a source close to the couple tells ET.

Wade, 31, and Union, 41, who were officially engaged last week, have worked through the issue privately as a couple, and the Bring It On star was aware of the child before their engagement. Wade has known the mother of his youngest son "for many years."

The long-time couple, who have been dating since 2009, are still very much committed to spending their lives together, and according to the Miami Heat star last week, a September wedding is likely.

A committed father, Wade has full custody of his two sons after a contentious custody battle with his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches, and is also raising his nephew. He has made no secret that being a father is the most important role in his life, participating in President Obama's Fatherhood Task Force and becoming a New York Times bestselling author for his book A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger than Basketball.

According to the source, Wade has never taken his fatherhood responsibility lightly and has no intention to do so now.

Phil Robertson Says Girls Should Be Married Off at “15 or 16”



Culture warriors on the right spent the bulk of the holiday season establishing Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty as a martyr because the millionaire was suspended from his television show after making grossly homophobic and racist statements to a GQ reporter. The strategy worked, and A&E reinstalled Robertson to his apparently First Amendment–guaranteed spot on reality TV, which in turn sent liberal bloggers back to YouTube to find more incidents of Robertson saying terrible things about the nonwhite, nonmale, nonstraight portions of the population.

The hunt didn't take long. This weekend bloggers turned up a video from 2009 in which Robertson advises marrying underage girls because they are easier to dominate than those who've graduated high school.

Oscar Isaac interviewed by Conor Oberst



The Coen brothers' new film, Inside Llewyn Davis, dives headlong into the nascent days of the Greenwich Village folk-revival scene of the early 1960s. Loosely based on singer Dave Van Ronk's posthumously published 2005 memoir, The Mayor of MacDougal Street, it's less a star-studded time-travelogue than a starkly reimagined black-and-white tone poem to the milieu and the music of the period. The action takes place over a period of a week in 1961—the year that Bob Dylan would arrive and change everything—and is orchestrated around a number of full-bodied live renderings of old chestnuts from the folkie songbook overseen by the movie's musical director, T Bone Burnett.

At the center of it all is Oscar Isaac, who stars as the film's titular Davis, a struggling (and entirely fictionalized) folk singer who, in the waning pre-Dylan days, is languishing in the then-obscurity of clubs like the Gaslight as he attempts to get his ever-complicated life in order following the suicide of his songwriting partner.

True Blood Exclusive: Luke Grimes Exits Prior to Seventh and Final Season, Role Will Be Recast

True Blood‘s upcoming seventh and final season has already claimed its first victim.

Luke Grimes, who joined the HBO hit in Season 6 as Jessica’s (Deborah Ann Woll) brooding, soulful vamp-camp lover James, has unexpectedly left the series, TVLine has learned exclusively.

When reached for comment, an HBO spokesperson confirmed Grimes’ exit, saying, “The role of James is being recast due to the creative direction of the character.”

Grimes’ rep declined to comment, but a source close to the Brothers & Sisters alum tells TVLine that the actor asked to be let out of his contract after he learned what producers had in store for James in Season 7. “He initially joined the show because he wanted to work with [his Forever co-star] Deborah Ann Woll,” says the insider. “But when he started reading the scripts for Season 7, he was disappointed to learn that they were going in a completely different direction with James.”

Grimes recently joined the Fifty Shades of Grey movie as Christian Grey’s brother.

Production on True Blood‘s farewell season begins next month ahead of a June 2014 premiere.

Antisemitism Continues in Sports: Tony Parker Makes Nazi Gesture In Online Posting



San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker is embroiled in controversy following his alleged use of what a Jewish human rights group believed was an anti-Semitic gesture.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center is asking the All-Star to apologize after multiple French newspapers posted pictures of Parker doing the “quenelle,” a gesture described as “the Nazi salute in reverse,” Roger Cukierman, the leader of an umbrella group of French Jewish organizations, told Reuters.

The call for the apology comes just one day after French soccer star Nicolas Anelka sparked outrage by displaying the same gesture after scoring a goal for West Bromwich of the English Premier League

In the photo, Parker is seen using the gesture with French comedian Dieudonne, who invented the hand signal. Dieudonne is a known supporter of former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s views on the State of Israel and his film, “The Anti-Semite,” was banned from the Cannes Film Festival last year.

The Grey Lady Pans Britney, Stans for Miley



LAS VEGAS — For the last six years, the state of Britney Spears has been summed up best — and most frequently — by the simple phrase she intoned at the top of “Gimme More,” from 2007, that has since become a catchphrase: “It’s Britney, bitch.”

Not a tease, nor a boast, nor a taunt, it’s almost apologetic, an apt tagline for a star whose power is self-evident, but also blank and tautological. It’s what might appear on the business card of a performer with nothing left to add.

No surprise then that at 32, with more than two decades of performing under her belt, Ms. Spears has already arrived at the laurel-resting portion of her career, landing in a greatest-hits production so winning that it barely needs her at all.

Mostly, she’s a pinball during the 90-minute extravaganza “Britney: Piece of Me,” her new residency at the Axis Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino here that had its debut on Friday. Magical things are happening all around her — ornate sets, clever video displays, fiery dancing — but Ms. Spears is there mostly to activate memories, to be a souvenir for the eyes. Rarely did the voice booming out over the speakers appear to be coming directly from Ms. Spears’s mouth. Always a notch or three less committed than her backup dancers, she was at times downright listless.

Lily Allen finally starts teasing new album, considers title 'Illuminaughty'



Lily Allen doesn’t understand why people think her new music is controversial.

The British singer made a chart comeback this year with her song Hard out Here, which mocks Robin Thicke’s track Blurred Lines and points out the double standards women have to battle.

Some have accused the 28-year-old star of overly hammering her point home, but she doesn’t care about criticism.

“It’s no use just singing about being famous, or rhyming ‘crazy’ with ‘baby’ a million times over. I still want to write about things that are relevant to other people,” she told Q magazine. “And I like to be frank whether it’s about sex or politics or feminism… but if people want to call it controversial, then, well, that’s their thing.”

My Husband Has A New Job: Tim Tebow Joins ESPN/SEC Network as an Analyst!


Former Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow has agreed to a multiyear deal to join ESPN as an analyst for the SEC Network, it was announced Monday.

"I am so excited that ESPN has given me this incredible opportunity," Tebow said in a statement. "When I was 6 years old, I fell in love with the game of football, and while I continue to pursue my dream of playing quarterback in the NFL, this is an amazing opportunity to be part of the unparalleled passion of college football and the SEC."

Tebow's primary role with the new network will be as an analyst for "SEC Nation," a traveling football pregame show that will originate from a different SEC campus each week. The show will debut before the Texas A&M-South Carolina game in Columbia, S.C., on Aug. 28.

The former Florida quarterback also will contribute to a variety of ESPN platforms, including "SportsCenter," ESPN Radio and the network's Heisman Trophy coverage. Tebow will make his debut as an analyst on Jan. 6 during ESPN's pregame coverage of the Vizio BCS National Championship.

"Tim is an SEC icon with a national fan base and broad appeal. He will be a significant contributor to the compelling content we will deliver with the SEC Network," said Justin Connolly, ESPN senior vice president, programming, college networks. "Tim brings a wealth of knowledge about the game, the conference and the passion among SEC fans." Tebow's role with ESPN will not preclude him from continuing to pursue opportunities in the NFL. He was with the New England Patriots before being released prior to the regular season. He also has played for the New York Jets and Denver Broncos.

Lena Dunham hates that you force her to tweet constantly



In today's examination of the difficult lives of poor little rich girls, television's savior Lena Dunham complains that unlike the classic writers of yore, she gets to take no breaks because she is constantly being forced to share her life on social media. The indignities! Can you imagine?

As she tells Salon, she is constantly writing under "great duress," duress which is compounded by the everpresent demands of social media. Rather than take the road of stars who eschew Twitter by realizing that public perception of them will remain the same regardless (see: Jennifer Lawrence, have we loved, George Clooney, have we hated), Ms. Dunham complains about how she is also being forced to tweet on top of her stressful job as a writer (ostensibly, by those droves of fans who are holding a gun to her head and coercing wit out of her, 140 characters at a time):

I feel like I miss a little bit the old – I mean it was kind of pre my career – but the idea that you made something, you put out a book or you put out a movie, and then you went into hibernation. You had your experience of preparing to put the next thing into the world. And that doesn't exist, because people are blogging and tweeting.

At the time of publication, Ms. Dunham has 7,181 tweets and 945 Instagram photos, all of which she has posted on her own, no doubt under great duress.

Does ONTD still hate her or have we moved on to backlashing against Beyonce?

Dev Hynes Talks about pressed Solange, Writing for Britney etc



Thirteen days after we meet, Dev Hynes breaks his self-imposed Twitter hiatus to post this: "Last night, the unthinkable happened. My entire apt burnt down while I was out. I've lost everything I own, including scores, hard drives …"

Finally, and for this sentimental journalist, most devastatingly: "My dog died in the fire. I will love you forever Cupid. I miss you."

In response to the fire, his girlfriend's mother set up a "Help Dev!" Go Fund Me site. In a testament to the affection he inspires, it raised $24,302 (£14,850) before it was closed at Hynes's request, with him pledging to give the money to three charities. Robin Urbani had begun the fundraiser with a goal of $5,000.

It was an awful end to what had been a wonderful year. Hynes, a profoundly unworldly figure, all but defined the sound of pop in 2013. This was the year he produced work for Mutya Keisha Siobhan and scored Gia Coppola's movie Palo Alto, out early next year. He also released the slinky and endlessly playable Cupid Deluxe, his second solo record as Blood Orange. And these high points came after a 2012 in which he finally launched Sky Ferreira's pop stardom with Everything is Embarrassing and Solange's with Losing You.

Waka Flocka Flame's brother Kayo Redd dies

kayoredd02


The younger brother of Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame has died.

Kayo Redd was an aspiring rapper who tweeted a shout-out to his recently released mixtape, “Redd Kisses,” hours before his death Sunday night in Atlanta.

His passing was confirmed in a tweet by his mother, hip-hop manger Debra Antney, who posted the solemn comment, “I just lost another son.”

Waka Flocka, 27, also tweeted his remorse, first in a now-deleted tweet (language warning) that suggests Redd committed suicide and later in the simple posting, “Ya Big Brother love you Kayo,” with a link to 15-second video tribute. The cause of Redd's death has not been officially confirmed.

Waka Flocka, who has scored rap hits with the songs “O Let’s Do It,” “No Hands” and “Get Low,” lost another brother, Caodes, in a car accident when he was 13. In aninterview with Vibe magazine, Antney, who also manages Waka Flocka’s career, said the loss of the sibling changed Waka Flocka.

“Since my son died, that’s when [Waka] flipped. He hated everything dealing with school because my son, his death was a sneak out the house to go help a kid with his homework before his father came home so the kid wouldn’t get a beating. Waka told him to go, he’ll cover for him. So [when he was biking home and killed by a car] Waka blamed hisself. He feels very responsible for my son’s death—that’s what flipped him out,” Antney told the magazine in 2010."

The latest reports indicate that it was an apparent suicide.... :(

Zac Efron Shows Off 6 Months Sobriety Chip From AA Post-Rehab at a Basketball Game

1388342916_zac-efron-g


He may have his head in the game, but fans were focused on what was hanging around Zac Efron's neck at a Laker's basketball game on Dec. 20. The former High School Musical star wore his blue AA sobriety chip around his neck while cheering for the Los Angeles team.

The blue chip implies that Efron, 26, is six months sober. The actor secretly completed a rehab stint in April 2013, which he managed to keep quiet for five months.

Efron seems to be keeping busy post-rehab. His film That Awkward Moment hits theaters on Jan. 31, 2014. The former child star broke his jaw in November after a fall at home and had his mouth wired shut.

But it seems to have healed, and on Dec. 15 he was all smiles at a Colts game while posing with Colts player Matt Overton.

The Top 5 Movie Hair and Makeup Moments in 2013

Between the lavish 1920s flappers in The Great Gatsby and the futuristic beauty addicts in Catching Fire, this was a jaw-dropping year for hair and makeup in movies. These are our five favorites:



Catching Fire (above) Sure, they've got some pretty backwards politics, but you have to admit those Capitol citizens know how to party. Jennifer Lawrence's look here was just futuristic enough without being crazy. And we can only imagine how many makeup artists it took to apply all those sequins, colored hair extensions, and wild eye shadows to 100-plus extras at the victors' celebration, but we're glad they did. The looks were so inspiring, CoverGirl even launched a collection based on them.

NBC “Taking Every Precaution” In Wake of Russian Violence Walking Up To Sochi Olympics


Will Jimmy Fallon‘s debut as NBC‘s new 11:35 PM funnyman — carefully orchestrated to take advantage of the network’s Sochi Winter Games ratings harvest — turn into a made-for-TV event out of step with what may be shaping up as one of the most dangerous Olympics in recent history? NBC has not said anything publicly as to whether it has any plans to beef up security after two bombings in the southern Russian city of Volgograd. Authorities suspect the bombings may be the work of a Chechen separatist group that has pledged to violently disrupt the Winter Games. The two bombings, which left at least 31 dead and more than 60 wounded, came less than six weeks before the competitions in Sochi, and have left some questioning whether terrorist violence will supersede athletic rivalry as the big story of these Olympics.

Awful that these innocent people are being killed. Hope security is able to stop any future attacks.
