Most-searched Halloween costumes for 2014 according to Yahoo

Cowabunga! Yahoo recently released the top-searched Halloween costumes this year, and "ninja turtle costume" tops the list, with searches jumping whopping 5,225 percent from the previous week.

Also making the list were three characters from Frozen — Elsa, Anna and Olaf — as well as Maleficent and The Hunger Games' Katniss, along with the generic "superhero costumes" and, more specifically, Wonder Woman and Catwoman.

As one might expect, Frozen also topped the list of most-searched costumes for kids, followed by Star Wars.

Ella Henderson debuts @ #1 in the UK + Performs at BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards

The X Factor alum Ella Henderson has taken this week’s Official Albums Chart Number 1 title with her debut release Chapter One.

Chapter One, which features Official Singles Chart Number 1 Ghost, as well as Top 10 follow up Glow, finishes the week over 16,000 copies ahead of its nearest rival, as well as becoming the second fastest-selling female debut chart-topper of 2014 behind Sam Bailey’s Power Of Love.

“To be a part of the music industry as a whole is something I'm learning to embrace, just seeing my name up there with other artists I admire and look up to is so surreal in itself,” Ella told OfficialCharts.com, “being Number 1 with my very first album is where a dream has met reality- it's a moment in time I will never forget.”

BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards hosts Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora presented the news to Ella live on stage as she performed at the event in London's SSE Arena this afternoon.

Jillian Michaels wishes she were straight

In a recent interview with Health magazine, Jillian Michaels opens up about her sexuality, and the pressure society puts on her.

When asked if she would ever consider doing her own reality show, Michaels responded: "I've been approached about having mutual approval over everything to do a reality show. It's interesting because we can talk about parenting, relationships, health—all the things that are important to me. But then I think, What if I open up and people attack us just because we're a gay family? It scares the hell out of me.

Then asked if she is comfortable talking openly about being gay. "I don't know that I am now, to be honest with you. The gay thing has always been hard for me. When Heidi and I are out and somebody older asks, "Are you sisters?" I say, "We're friends." I guess it comes from thinking that they will be shocked or disturbed. Look, I wish I had some strapping football player husband. It would be such a dream to be "normal" like that, but I'm just not.


this bo$$ though, still coming out & living her life even though she's brave enough to admit that it's scary.

#Beautiful Black Legend Mariah Carey & Her Whistle Notes Slay Diana Ross (While Cleaning)

Mariah Carey uploaded a personal video to her Youtube channel of her singing Diana Ross' Ain't No Mountain High Enough! Her whistle notes sounded effervescent, angelic & much more #BeautifulFeaturingMiguel than certain pony-tailed white women that I don't know.

And the (eternal) diva did all this while CLEANING & RE-ARRANGING FURNITURE! This all comes on the heels of ugly and crusty news outlets giving the African-American multimillionaire shit for not being able to sing at her recent concerts.

The Dreamlover/One More Try/Honey (Bad Boy Remix) singer's next stop on her The Elusive Chanteuse Show tour is in Malaysia on October 22nd!


Mariah and Diana Ross' wonderful and white daughter-in-law Ashlee Simpson thank you for your time. Stay blessed.

ONTD Original - 8 Rising Actors Who Are Ugly Yet/and Maybe Talented

What do I mean by this list? I mean, young actors who are on the rise, doing some amazing work and winning awards, and are not traditionally beautiful or fit the description of "boys i wanna bang" or "ontd bae". No actresses will be included in this list because of how much harder it is to be given an acting chance with a less conventionally attractive face (srsly).

This list was obviously inspired by the Meth Damon post and a post from a couple days ago about amazing B-list actors who will never fully breakout and win their Hollywood top spot. No harm is meant by this post, and actors mentioned here who see this post should actually be grateful for this chance of being in the ONTD spotlight!

Get your vivaporu! Dominican Princess Maluca Slays - New EP

Just last month, the Dominican songstress known as Maluca, unleashed her latest record entitled “Trigger”. Opening up with a nostalgic sample of El General’s “Tu Pum Pum”, “Trigger” rapidly pivots from the pitched down sample to an enticing blend of airy synth lines and Maluca‘s sultry vocals. A potent concoction of latin-pop, reggaeton, hip-hop and electronic undertones; “Trigger” is back yet again with a host of top-notch remixes from the likes of Brenmar, ETC!ETC!, Mess Kid, and Rizzla.

Shonda Rhimes Takes Fan To Task Over 'Gay Scenes' Complaint


Shonda Rhimes won't stand for any intolerance in Shondaland. The "Scandal" and "Grey's Anatomy" creator took a fan to task on Twitter Sunday afternoon (Oct. 19), after they pointed out that they didn't appreciate certain parts of her shows.

"The gay scenes in "Scandal' and 'How to Get Away with Murder' are too much," the user writes. "There is no point and they add nothing to the plot."

Like only Shonda can, she fired back a trio of tweets. "There are no GAY scenes. There are scenes with people in them," she replies. "If you are suddenly discovering that Shondaland shows have scenes involving people who are gay, you are LATE TO THE PARTY. If u use the phrase 'gay scenes,' u are not only LATE to the party but also NOT INVITED to the party. Bye Felicia. #oneLOVE"

Shortly after setting the matter straight, Rhimes took her leave from Twitter to go back to the "Grey's Anatomy" script notes she was working on and all was calm once again in Shondaland.
