Nicki Minaj Apparently Had Big Dreams as a Little Girl, But They Did Not Involve Rapping

Funny how life works out, isn't it?

Many young girls can only dream of the type of superstardom Nicki Minaj enjoys: fame, fortune, unlimited access to wigs, unlimited access to Drake, etc.

But before she was Nicki Minaj, she was Onika Maraj — just a normal girl attending P.S. 45 in Queens, New York. The video above, which surfaced on Reddit, shows young Onika discussing her hopes and dreams. And let us assure you: they do not involve wigs or Drake at all!

Instead, she says she aspires to be a nurse, so she can help people less fortunate than herself.

Real talk: there’s very little information about where this video comes from, but it sure seems like Nicki — even without that goofy barbie voice.

ONTD Original: 10 VMA Performances You Forgot About

Every year MTV Video Music Awards performances are getting duller and duller, with Ariana's not-show stopping opening performance to Taylor's awkward coming out as a pop star, so let's take some time and remember performances from past that are forgotten but still great and worth a mention.

The Colbert Report Wins Second Straight Best Variety Series Emmy

The Colbert Report has emerged victorious yet again from the two-man Emmy race that was only a one-man race up until last year.

Although Jimmy Fallon did fancy it a three-man race for a moment.

"It's unbelievable, she said it wrong, so there must be a mistake. I want to see the envelope," the Tonight Show host insisted, joining Stephen Colbert and his team onstage when The Colbert Report won its second straight Emmy for Outstanding Variety Series, holding off 19-time (including writing and other awards) winner The Daily Show for at least one more year. (The Daily Show won the top prize 10 straight years before being unthroned by Colbert Report in 2013.)

The mistake Jimmy was referring to, of course, was presenter Gwen Stefani's Travoltification of The Colbert Report—which at first seemed like a joke, the commonly picked upon flat pronunciation of his show, but upon review seemed like a real, live, unfortunate flub.

"I just want to thank Stephen and all his writers," the ever-enthusiastic Fallon continued, and the actual winner—whose iconic Comedy Central show is ending at the end of this year—played along, pretending to whisper the right things to say into Fallon's ear.

Mimi Stunts the Sidewalk in First Sighting Since Divorce News

Her separation from estranged husband Nick Cannon was recently made public.

And on Monday Mariah Carey was seen for the first time since the news of her split broke on a family stroll with her nephew in New York.

The 44-year-old singer put on a brave face for the outing, while wearing a purple one shoulder-strap maxi dress.

I like to imagine Faded is her current ringtone.  Nick stays dressing like he's still on All That.   Also, she needs to get a new hairstylist/weave.  Take a chapter from the Katie Holmes Book of Divorce Style.

Suri Cruise's dog is MISSING .....

Suri Cruise's new Chihuahua, Honey -- which she's only had for a couple of weeks -- has disappeared ... and TMZ has learned there's a $1,000 reward for the pup's return.

Sources close to the situation tell us ... Suri and her mom, Katie Holmes, took Honey to a friend's house in Beverly Hills Sunday ... where the pooch slipped out the front gate. We're told she wasn't wearing a collar because they removed it to take her swimming.

50 reward posters have been plastered around the area. They even issued a pet Amber alert -- to notify houses in the area about the disappearance. We're told Honey also answers to Maple -- her name before she went to live with Suri.

Time is of the essence in the search -- the area where Honey/Maple bolted is heavily wooded and a known coyote hotspot. Katie and Suri adopted the 1-year-old Chihuahua mix from a Studio City rescue ... shortly before moving into their new digs in Calabasas a couple of weeks ago.

Justin Bieber has MORE police DRAMA!! And Selena was involved!

Police responded to a restaurant in Hollywood on Monday night following an incident involving Justin Bieber, an LAPD spokeswoman said. No arrests were made.

Officers were summoned to a Dave & Buster’s location in the 6800 block of Hollywood Boulevard, at the Hollywood & Highland Center, after a fan used a cellphone to record video of the pop singer, said Officer Sara Faden of the Los Angeles Police Department. Bieber’s security detail asked to see the video, but the fan declined.

After it was determined that no cellphone had been taken and no crime had been committed, the officers departed, Faden said.

The restaurant was celebrating its grand opening on Monday, according to the Dave & Buster’s corporate website.

'Blade Runner' and 'Prometheus' sequel scripts complete... When will Ridley Scott find the time?

Last year 20th Century Fox hired Jack Paglen to write a script for Prometheus 2, Ridley Scott’s follow-up to his Alien prequel that, while performed well, was panned by critics.

Since then, Scott’s been working hard. A bit too hard. He’s got a lot on his plate and it’s chasing the director to have a serious logjam.

In an interview with EW he reveals that he not only has The Martian to deal with, but that both Blade Runner and Prometheus are in the pipeline. In fact, they’re ready to go.

When pressed as to when Blade Runner might happen, Scott says, “Probably after [The Martian].” He furthers his talk by addressing Prometheus, “That’s the problem,” Scott says. “I’ve got a lot of ducks in a row. But they’re all written.”

While he doesn’t speak on Prometheus, he had this to say about Blade Runner:“[Blade Runner 2] is written and it’s damn good. Of course it involves Harrison, who is a survivor after all these years—despite the accident. So yes, that will happen.”

Fox News doesn’t understand Feminism. No one is shocked.

Last night the 31st annual MTV video Music Awards aired on the channel and for maybe the first time in my life, I was feeling a giant 'eh' about tuning in. Frankly, I gave up on my excitement for the award show when *NYSNC reunited for six seconds (or maybe when I realized Britney never won a Moonman for Toxic). But in the name of Queen Beysus, I made the effort. What I was confronted with was a cringe-worthy wardrobe malfunction, Taylor Swift's mechanical pop performance, and a confusing (although plenty welcome) jump by Miley Cyrus into the world of social justice. It all left me rubbing at my face in boredom until the final moments when a proclamation came from reigning Queen-of-Everything Beyonce that we here at Feminasty have all been dying to see.

It's one thing to release a clandestine album in the middle of the night with no press and no warning, bombarding us with a bevy of different versions of Bey- the warrior, the jilted lover, the pagent queen, the feminist-

Wait. The feminist? Yes.

The moment Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's voice rang through the break in ***Flawless, I might have died. I might have squealed and fell off my bed in excitement as I realized just how incredible this was.

It's rare to find a woman in Hollywood these days who embraces the term. It's even more rare to find someone who would so brashly throw it in your face while moshing in the middle of a grainy black and white video with those (aesthetically unpleasing) denim cut-offs. But no matter the setting, it was there- Beyonce's declaration of her own empowerment and it was incredible.

Call me biased, but I've been in love with Beyonce ever since she graced the cover of GQ in nothing more than her underwear talking to an audience who'd never listen otherwise about the myth of gender equality.

Leave it to Fox News to miss the point.

Donald Glover is SPIDER-MAN

The actor and rapper plays Miles Morales on an upcoming episode of 'Web Warriors.'

Donald Glover grew up with Spider-Man as his No. 1 superhero, and while he doesn't get to wear web-shooters or red and blue tights, at least he's getting to voice a precocious version of Marvel Comics' iconic wall-crawler.

The new season of Disney XD's animated series Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors will take Peter Parker through various parallel worlds, including one where he meets Miles Morales, his half-Hispanic, half-black counterpart, voiced by Glover. The season premieres Sunday (9 a.m. ET/PT), and the "Spider-Verse" arc of episodes airs next year.

Have You Met Your New Emmy-Winning Boyfriend, Cary Fukunaga? If Not, You Should

Step aside, Jon Hamm. Matthew McConaugh-who? Last night’s Emmy Awards proved that True Detective director Cary Joji Fukunaga is hotter than any A-lister we’ve previously coveted, and that man braids are making a big comeback. The internet thinks so, too.

Fukunaga has come a long way since his days as a production assistant for the Destiny’s Child “Survivor” video. Before linking up with the True Detective team, he made a name for himself on the indie circuit with Sundance hit Sin Nombre in 2009, as well as 2011′s Jane Eyre, starring Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender. He directed all eight episodes of the HBO series, and won the award for Outstanding Directing of a Drama Series. When he did, Twitter exploded.

Could it be the nerdy-sexy look? That chiseled jaw? Don’t let the braids fool you (and if you’re into them, more power to you). This stud is surely one of Hollywood’s hottest hidden gems. And if you don’t believe us, hop into the gallery above to see how many others are clamoring for a taste. Get those boxing gloves ready, ladies (and gentlemen): Cary Fever is upon us.

Next up for Fukunaga is the 2015 film Beasts of No Nation, starring fellow professional handsome man, Idris Elba. (We can’t wait for the beyond beautiful press tour.)



TV Ratings: VMAs Take a Small Hit, Pull 8.3 Million Viewers


Driven by just as much twerking as last year, MTV's Video Music Awards still took a hit on Sunday night. The evening before the Emmys, the cable network's flagship event brought in some of music's biggest names — including Beyonce, who closed the night with a nearly-20-minute performance.

The live 9 p.m. ET telecast averaged 8.3 million viewers. That's 1.8 million viewers from last year's 10.1  haul. With encores on MTV and sister nets, the show took a total of 13.7 million viewers over the course of the night.

In MTV's targeted younger demographic of 12- to 34-year-olds the VMAs averaged a 6.7 rating.

The 2013 VMAs saw huge gains thanks to a move back to Sunday. (The 2012 Thursday outing plummeted to just 6.1 million viewers.) MTV's all-time most-watched VMA telecast still belongs to the 2011 telecast which fetched 12.4 million viewers.

Skewing young, the show was predictably a hit on Twitter. Nielsen estimates 12.6 million VMA-related tweets on Sunday night, with a unique audience of 10.9 million people.

First promo debuts for Season 4 of best drama on TV (aka Revenge)

Note to Emily Thorne: you may wanna sleep with one eye open this fall.

ABC has released the first promo for Revenge Season 4 - and it features a major role reversal for this suspenseful drama.

For the first three years of this series, Emily has been the one scheming against Victoria Grayson, plotting and planning to avenge her father's (supposed) death against the family responsible for his downfall.

But now Victoria's family has been destroyed. The love of her life has been murdered. Her freedom has been taken away.

And so, as Victoria teases in the following footage, the matriarch of The Hamptons is coming for her nemesis. And we can't wait to see what transpires.

Okay that narration from Victoria was a little cringey but it's still bringing mad soap realness and I am on the edge of my damn seat waiting for this season to arrive <3

Sarah Hyland SPLITS from boyfriend!

Sarah's single! Multiple sources tell Us Weekly that Sarah Hyland and Matt Prokop broke up and it is amicable. Her rep can confirm.
"Sarah's doing fine. It didn't work out," a source tells Us. "She's young. They decided they would be better off as friends." (Tellingly, Hyland showed up at the Emmys on Monday, Aug. 25, without a date.)

Hyland, 23, first met Prokop, 24, while auditioning for High School Musical 3: Senior Year in 2008. They later starred together in Disney Channel's Original Movie Geek Charming in 2011. During their relationship, the couple lived together and co-parented dog Barkley Bixby, a 4-year-old Maltipoo. Last November, the Modern Family star gushed to Us that her favorite date night with Prokop was of the casual variety. "I'm not a really fancy girl, I like something really simple," she said at the time. "As long as thought was put into it, that's all that matters to me."

The Emmy ratings are IN!

That Monday move didn't actually hurt. The 2014 Emmys, several weeks early this year and displaced from its Sunday perch by NBC's preseason football coverage, took only a minor hit on the new night.

The first Monday outing for the TV kudos since 1976, overnight ratings give the Emmy telecast a 10.9 rating among metered market households — off just 10 percent for last year for the second-best overnight showing in eight years.

Preliminary figures will obviously see adjustments, but it's clear that tragedy was averted. And, to be fair, last year's Emmys hit an eight-year high. Airing Sunday Sept. 22 and driven by NFL overrun on CBS, the telecast averaged 17.6 million viewers and a 4.9 rating with adults 18-49. It scored an overnight of 12.1 rating. (Not too shabby.)

Poster/Trailer for EXISTS, another Bigfoot found footage horror film

Though recent years have seen an increase in Sasquatch scares, we’ve been patiently awaiting this one in particular. From Eduardo Sanchez, co-creator of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, 2011’s undervalued LOVELY MOLLY and clever V/H/S/2 zombie segment “A Ride in the Park,” EXISTS is a faux doc fright featuring one of the most mythical monsters of all, Bigfoot.

Out this fall from Lionsgate, EXISTS sees five friends set out for “a weekend of camping in the Texas Big Thicket. But visions of a carefree vacation are shattered with an accident on a dark and desolate country road. In the wake of the accident, a bloodcurdling force of nature is unleashed—something not exactly human, but not completely animal— an urban legend come to terrifying life…and seeking murderous revenge.”

EXISTS has been patiently awaiting release for some time, during which Sanchez has made clear his passion for the creature and this story. That’s not to mention I’ve heard the monster itself is rad.

EXISTS is out October 24th in theaters and on iTunes.


Thoughts on what is probably the 9,426th "found footage" horror film? This is also the SECOND found footage Bigfoot movie we've gotten this year. The first was Willow Creek, which sucked ass and didn't show Bigfoot at all.

Tamar Braxton Reignites Feud with K. Michelle & Fails Miserably!

Chile Tamar Braxton knows she is just as petty as she wants to be. Just recently, Tamar tweeted “Who’s signed to Atomfactory”. This was a slight dig at K. Michelle because Atomfactory Is where K.Michelle is signed for management.  The Gag is, Atomfactory is owned by once of Vince’s business partners named Troy. Troy is a executive producer on Braxton Family Values and The Tamar & Vince show. It gets better… Troy also helped manage Lady Gaga in conjunction with Vince. With that, I’m surprised Tamar even tweeted what she did, because the implication is that Atomfactory is some little no named, rinky dink,  bubble gum management team.  If Troy is part of the family perse’, why would Tamar even go there? These old hoes ain’t loyal.

“You are not to present Ariana with any type of gift or anything. Give them to security and they will get them to her. You can take a selfie with her, but nothing else.”

Niall Horan Slams One Direction Breakup Rumors

One Direction aren't breaking up, so we're not sure why we have to read another new rumor about them splitting, like, every week. It didn't help that Simon Cowell recently commented on their inevitable split. Way to stir up more gossip, Simon.

Niall Horan was quick to shoot down the 1D breakup rumors yet again, putting it out there plain and simple: they're going to be around for awhile. Will they eventually pack it in and call it quits though?

Niall told the Irish Sun: "He [Simon] was clearly misquoted or something.(lol okay Niall) We're going to go as long as we can go, as long as people want us we will be here. None of that rumors business."

As for solo rumors, he commented, "I don't want to think about that at the minute. I'm still here, still with the band," adding, "I don't need to think about it at all - I'm having a great time here, touring and having the craic with the lads - we are all still having a great time."

He added: "We've got another album at the end of the year and doing our business as we do on a kind of yearly basis. I'm not thinking of what I have to do after just yet."

To support all that feel-good "we're not going anywhere" stuff, Niall tweeted earlier this week: "Love this time of year, decisions . Album artwork, album title, music video ideas ! can't wait for you guys to hear and see what we're doing."

See? Everything is good. Niall said so.

How Lizzy Caplan Chose Her Gorgeous Emmys Gown

Last night, Masters of Sex star Lizzy Caplan walked the Emmys red carpet in a stunner of a Donna Karan Atelier gown. Sleek and sophisticated with just the right edge of sexiness, it was perfect for the actress, who was nominated for Lead Actress in a Drama Series. Before the show, we caught up with Caplan's stylist, Ilaria Urbinati, who explained how they picked The Dress, as well as the Neil Lane jewels, Brian Atwood shoes, and Judith Lieber clutch she paired it with, and shared some behind-the-scenes photos from the lead up to the big event.

What is it like dressing Lizzy Caplan in particular? She seems like she has such a fun personality—is that something you hope is reflected in her clothes?

Absolutely. She's got a really cool, unique sense of style and impeccable taste in everything from clothes to housewares to music—just a really heightened sense of aesthetics. So I definitely always know that she will "get" certain chic, high fashion things and be able to pull them off, while at the same time she pulls off very timeless classic things as well because she also has very clean taste. She's not quirky for the sake of quirky—she just likes things that feel special and unique. That definitely affects the looks I pull for her. And I also think it's why cool designers are excited to work with her.

On the other hand I think because she's kind of a tomboy that she can pull off a more romantic gown without it looking too saccharine.

'Young Justice' Has the Black Female Superheroes We've Been Waiting For

Black women waited for years to have a princess who looked like them, and now there is a growing presence of black female characters in the comic-verse.

Imagine, if you will, four very complex black female characters in animation all together in one show: two superheroes (Bumblebee and Rocket), one morally grey prison warden (Amanda Waller), and one supervillain (Queen Bee). DC Comic’s short-lived show Young Justice features in its two seasons the teenaged sidekicks of the senior members of the Justice League, and the young counterparts with whom they join forces. These characters exemplify diversity not only in regards to how race is portrayed in animation, but in academia, relationships, morality, and occupation.

8 Things you probably already knew about Roman Reigns

Life moves quickly for Roman Reigns, even more quickly than for the typical WWE superstar. Of course Reigns is anything but typical. The lights shine a little more brightly on the former big-time college and pro football player with the wrestling pedigree. And his star is rising quickly.

Reigns is climbing the ranks of the WWE, and has in his sites set on the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. He’ll have to go through Brock Lesnar, who took it at this past weekend’s SummerSlam, not to mention loser John Cena, Daniel Bryan and a host of other hungry challengers. Reigns just dispensed with Randy Orton to take another step closer. Can he continue the march to glory? Will he take a detour through Hollywood?

Here are eight things you didn’t know about Roman Reigns.

1. Roman Reigns was born Leati Joseph Anoa’i into the legendary Samoan American wrestling family of the same last name. His dad is Sika of the Wild Samoans tag team (with Afa), which collected NWA and WWF championships throughout the 1970s and 80s. His cousin is Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, son of wrestler Rocky Johnson. Current WWE tag team champions, The Usos, consisting of twin brothers Jimmy and Jey Uso, are also family.

But sometimes, extras draw attention to themselves—either intentionally or unintentionally—and break the main focus of the scene.

Neil Young Files for Divorce From Pegi Young, Wife of 36 Years

The couple were musical collaborators and co-founded the Bridge School in 1986

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Neil Young has filed for divorce from Pegi Young, his wife of 36 years and frequent musical collaborator. A petition for dissolution of marriage was filed by Young in their hometown of San Mateo, California, on July 29th. A hearing is scheduled for December 12th. A rep for Neil Young had no comment.

Pegi is the inspiration for some of Young's most enduring love songs, including "Such a Woman," "Unknown Legend" and "Once an Angel." She began serving as his background singer in the 1990s, sharing the stage with him at the 1994 Academy Awards and numerous tours over the past 20 years. They last performed together at the Bridge School Benefit in October of 2013.

Neil first met Pegi when she was working as a waitress at a diner near his California ranch, a story he tells in the 1992 song "Unknown Legend." "I used to order just to watch her float across the floor," he sang. "She grew up in a small town/Never put her roots down."

Pegi has released three solo albums since 2007 and she's toured extensively on her own, occasionally with Neil on guitar. Inspired by the lack of educational opportunities for their son Ben, who suffers from cerebral palsy, they co-founded the Bridge School in 1986, which educates children with severe physical impairments. They raise funds for it every year with an all-star concert in Mountain View, California.

Neil recently wrapped up a European Crazy Horse tour and is slated to play American solo acoustic dates in October. Pegi just concluded a brief U.S. club tour. They were both slated to play Farm Aid in Raleigh, North Carolina, on September 13th, though Pegi's name was recently removed from the lineup.


So bummed. Something really bad must happen to get divorced after 36 years :-(

What we'll miss about 'Chelsea Lately'


The last episode of "Chelsea Lately" will air on Tuesday night.

In her seven-year run, Handler has made "Lately" the go-to place for fans wanting something a little tarter with their talk-show entertainment. Let Jimmy Fallon have the "nice" aura; Handler is just as soon exasperated with her show, her staff and even her guests as she is tickled.

At this point, who knows what she'll bring to her Netflix program, which -- given the on-demand nature of the service -- will almost certainly have a different format. Nevertheless, there's plenty about "Chelsea Lately" we hope carries over to Handler's next talk-show chapter.

Justin Timberlake Parties Solo After Concert in Paris—Get All the Details!

Wherever Justin Timberlake is, it's a party. The singer and his crew were in Paris last week for the European leg of his tour, and the group decided to head out and party at the VIP Room in the City of Light following the concert on Thursday night.

"He had just a little party in the VIP Room and because his friend had a birthday, Justin sang 'Happy Birthday' to his friend," a source tells E! News. "He was behaving very normal. He was very casual, calm and nice and having a great time." Fellow club-goer Sophie Montreaux also tells E! News that Timberlake, who arrived at the Paris hot spot around 2 a.m. and stayed for around two hours, "was just laughing and joking and drinking but before long he stood up and started dancing."

And judging by the photos posted to the venue's Facebook page, it looks like J.T. got up on the mike and maybe even deejayed a little bit? The page wrote, "JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE IS AT 'VIP ROOM' THEATRE PARIS RIGHT NOW FOR HIS OFFICIAL AFTER SHOW !!!!" There's no word where wife Jessica Biel was during his Paris partying, but her absence guarantees that there was one less body dancing to his tunes during the concert.

Biel was seen breaking it down in Montreal last month while her hubby performed on stage as part of his 20/20 World Experience Tour—the evidence of which was captured on camera by one very sneaky fan. As Timberlake brought sexy back, showing off his best moves atop a structure on the stage, Biel danced below her man, grooving along to his hit tune "Take Back the Night."

Katy Perry and Diplo BACK ON!!! New Details!

It sounds like Katy Perry and Diplo had a fun-filled Emmys night together!

According to a source, Perry and her man were very handsy with each other during the bash and were acting like a very cute couple. In addition to their party PDA, the music stars also danced together. The source also adds that the lovebirds are "still together" romantically.

Other celebs who were at the party included Allison Williams, Amy Poehler, Jon Hamm, Kate Mara, Eric Stonestreet, Jimmy Kimmel, Elizabeth Banks, Claire Danes, Juliana Margulies, Kevin Spacey and Perry's stylist Johnny Wujek. Samantha Ronson deejayed the party. Diplo even took to Instagram to share a pic of him posing with Hamm, writing, "Original dons."

Simon Cowell has revealed why he sacked Cheryl Cole from X Factor

It was all down to her hair, her outfit and a "bit of weight" apparently.

Simon Cowell has revealed why he sacked Cheryl Cole, now known as Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, from the US version of the X Factor.

He's told the Radio Times the singer had "lost her confidence" after her divorce from husband Ashley Cole.

He admitted "there was something not quite right" about the American version.

It was cancelled in the US after three seasons, however Cheryl is back as a judge on the British version this year.

So what was the problem with the orange and purple outfit she wore on the first day of filming stateside?

Cameras are set to roll on Ron Howard's third big screen Dan Brown adaptation in April 2015, Deadline reports. Tom Hanks will reprise his The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons role of Professor Robert Langdon for Inferno, which has been given a tentative release date of December 18, 2015.

The book itself marks the fourth novel to follow Langdon. Published in 2013, Inferno is officially described as follows:

In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces... Dante’s Inferno.

Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust... before the world is irrevocably altered.

From Charlize Theron to Ralph Fiennes: The celebrity names we’re all mispronouncing

WITH Sharknado 2 premiering in the US, some in the office learned two surprising facts about the film’s star, Ian Ziering.
Firstly, that the man most famous for playing Steve Sanders in Beverly Hills, 90210 is now 50 years old. Don’t we feel ancient.
Second, that Ian’s first name is pronounced ‘Eye-an’. As in, rhymes with Brian.

Ralph Fiennes

‘Ralph’ is a pretty hard one to mess up, right? WRONG. Ralph Fiennes pronounces his first name ‘Rafe’.
“There is a tradition in the UK of pronouncing Ralph as ‘Rafe’. I believe my father named me after my step-grandfather,” Fiennes explains in this interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

Saoirse Ronan

The Irish actor, best known for roles in Hanna and Grand Budapest Hotel, is blessed with an intimidatingly vowel-heavy first name for those not well-versed in traditional Irish pronunciation. If you thought it was pronounced ‘Saaii[cough]uueeoorse’, you’d be wrong. It’s actually a much simpler SEER-sha.

Rest at the source

Surprised that Mia W. wasn't included, given that it's an Australian source. Anyway, do people regularly bungle your names, ONTD?

Sebastian Stan Explains Chris Evans’ Penchant For Boob Grabbing

Oh, conventions. You are the perfect breeding ground for awkward people to ask awkward questions awkwardly. This time the event was Chicago Comic Con, and the panel was with Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie, who really should just have their own side project as the Marvel Odd Couple. FALCON AND THE MAN. ARM AND THE HAMMER. A BIRD IN THE HAND. (Feel free to use any of those for the pornographic version of a Marvel Odd Couple side project.)

The internet has latched on to Chris Evans’ habit of grabbing his chest when he’s laughing. You could actually say the internet is grabbing the left boob of Chris Evans’ left boob grabbing. If someone is next to him — his friends, his co-workers, his own brother — they sometimes get manhandled, too. This was the question posed to Stan and Mackie (Hey. STAN AND MACKIE is a pretty good title) during the convention:

So should stuff like this only stay on the internet or is it harmless enough to share with celebrities?

Watch Kim Kardashian’s Reaction To Jay Pharoah’s VMA Kanye Impression

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

With Kanye West too busy to attend the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, Saturday Night Live’s Jay Pharoah took on Kanye impersonation duties for the duration of the evening — a tough job, considering that noted Kanye expert and spouse Kim Kardashian was right there to watch the whole thing.

What did Mrs. West think of Pharoah’s hyperventilating take on her husband’s outsized personality? Our split-screen video captured her reaction in real time, from start to finish. She kept a camera-ready game face on for most of it, but not even the TV veteran could completely hold it together for the moment when Pharaoh, suddenly in super-serious mode, looked soulfully into the camera and declared her “the smartest human being on the planet.”
