Benedict Cumberbatch appeared on ‘The Daily Show’, Jon Stewart loves him

129327PCN_CNNHeroes21

When my dog is really tired and he wants me to rub his belly, he drops to the floor, throws his paws in the air and shows me a wonderful “submission” position. That’s what I feel like doing at this point with Benedict Cumberbatch, and no, that’s not a sex thing. I just feel like, “Okay, I get it. I submit. You are reaching for that Oscar. I SUBMIT!!” These are photos of Benedict at last night’s 2014 CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute, which was held at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC. I’m also including a photo of Benedict outside of The Daily Show, because YES, Benedict has been blanketing all of the New York-based media outlets this week. I SUBMIT!!! Here’s the video of Bendy on TDS:

Jon Stewart is so nice. Jon starts off by acknowledging the Cumberladies in the audience, then he lets Bendy talk about Alan Turing and the movie. I actually learned something new about “the Turing Test” and artificial intelligence. And Jon sort of wants to marry him too!

What else? Ugh. There’s a rumor that Benedict is going to be on the cover of Time Magazine this week. With a real Enigma machine, apparently. And Benedict spoke about his lover and fiancée Sophie Hunter with USA Today on the red carpet two nights ago – he explained why they decided to make their red carpet debut:

“(I thought), we’re going to be doing this for our whole lives, so sometimes, if you want to come with me, this is what it’s going to be like. She was very cool with it and loved it,” said Cumberbatch. “We both went to the London premiere but not together. We weren’t engaged and there was no reason to sort of show off to the world.”

[From USA Today]

Cough. I’m not going to participate in the Twihard Proofing of this relationship and of Sophie Hunter, but I’ll just say… any woman who can participate in sketchball, NSFW, half-naked music videos for “art” probably has no problem walking a red carpet with her fiancé.

Solange Knowles Is Married!

The 2014 CFDA Fashion AwardsIt was a big weekend for Solange Knowles in New Orleans. She tied the knot! Solange married Alan Ferguson in the Big Easy yesterday. RELATED: Solange Knowles opens up about the elevator scuffle with Jay Z (kinda).

I don’t have the right to the pictures, but People has some posted. Solange and Alan wore an interesting set of his-and-hers white suits before the ceremony. It’s not clear if they changed before the ceremony or not. An onlooker said they looked:

Beaming. Calm. They looked pretty calm, relaxed on their wedding day. Definitely happy.”

Beyonce, Jay Z and Blue Ivy attended the nuptials, along with Tina Knowles and Solange’s 10-year-old son Daniel Julez. Alan is a respected music video director. Congratulations to Solange and Alan!

Johnny Depp: Drunk Speech is Only Highlight of Hollywood Film Awards! Watch Now!

The Hollywood Film Awards were held last night, and if you’ve never heard of the event, don’t worry – neither has anyone else.

It was the first time the awards were televised. A-listers from Ben Affleck to producer James L. Brooks publicly dismissed the HFAs as a joke.

But the best indicator of just how seriously Hollywood takes the Hollywood Film Awards was Johnny Depp’s BAC, which apparently peaked right around the time he took the stage:

Yes, it seems Depp employed the Captain Jack Sparrow method for coping with pre-show jitters and downed a barrel of rum backstage.

Hey, Johnny might be in he’s 50s, but he’s engaged to Amber Heard, who’s only 28. Maybe he figures if she’s not gonna take full advantage of her youth, then he’ll party hard enough for both of them.

The sight of Depp slurring and stumbling his way through what should have been a 30 second speech makes us nostalgic for the days of his booze-and-coke-fueled relationship with Kate Moss. Ah, memories.

In case you can’t tell, Johnny is presenting an award to Shep Gordon – subject of the new documentary Supermensch – because apparently the HFAs are the kind of show that honors people for being the subject of a documentary. (And for showing up.)

Sounds like the kind of night that requires a drink or 12 in order to make it tolerable. Hunter S. Thompson would approve.

It’s all fun and games until someone strips down to play beer pong dressed as Flavor Flav dressed as a curtain rod.

Nick Lachey on Jessica Simpson: ‘it’s the best thing that we didn’t have kids’

Nick Lachey joins premium chocolatier, Lindt USA
Nick Lachey gets asked about his ex, Jessica Simpson, often. I think that’s because he hasn’t really achieved the post-Newlyweds fame that Simpson has and he’s still known to many as Jessica Simpson’s ex. He’s been happily married to Vanessa Minnillo since 2011 and they have their second child on the way. Plus he gets minor TV hosting gigs and he’s still singing. Lachey is hanging in there on the lower echelons of fame and he seems happy to play his role.

In a new interview on Jenny McCarthy’s Sirius show, Nick opined about how it’s a good thing that he never had kids with Jessica. He also said that he doesn’t speak to Jessica, which he’s said before, and that they’re neither friends nor enemies.

In a new interview on SiriusXM’s radio show Dirty, Sexy, Funny with Jenny McCarthy, the former 98 Degrees star admits that not making babies with Jessica Simpson turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

“I think in our situation, that was probably the best thing that could have ever happened is that we didn’t have kids,” he told Jenny McCarthy. “All things being equal, it was the best thing probably for the both of us that we went on with our lives and she’s obviously happily married with two [kids]. I’m happy married about to have two so it all worked out the way it was supposed to work out.”

Simpson and Lachey chronicled part of their three-year marriage on MTV’s popular series Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica. They would announce their split in November 2005.

While both parties have moved on with new partners, the former boy band member admits he’s not close to his ex at all.

“I wouldn’t say it’s friends, but I wouldn’t say it’s enemies. There’s just no contact,” Lachey explained when asked about his relationship today. “We’ve both moved on with our lives and I think we’re very happy with the way it went. It’s not animosity, it’s not friendship, it’s just kind of nothing.”

[From E! Online]

That was very diplomatic. After that Jenny asked Nick about his sex life and he said he still does the deed with Vanessa even though she’s pregnant. (They announced in July so she’s probably about 7 months along.) He mentioned “positioning” and it was TMI but Nick is playing the game and he’s getting a little press (and nookie) so good for him. He added “Every now and then I campaign. It was my birthday weekend this weekend so I did howl at the moon a couple of times.” I have never heard “howl at the moon” used as a euphemism for sex. I’m going to use that.

Nick also said that he’s an attentive husband and that he tries to agree as much as possible with whatever Vanessa says. “As a man, you also appreciate what your partner is going through and the transformation they’re going through and all the stuff that comes with it. The least we could do is be agreeable.” I’ve always liked him.

Here’s Nick, Vanessa and their son Camden on Halloween. They did a Peter Pan theme. So cute!

Charlie Ebersol and Britney Spears: Hooked Up By Britney’s Dad in Order to Secure Reality Show Deal?!

Last week, we learned that Britney Spears is dating Charlie Ebersol – a television producer who is also the son of legendary NBC exec Dick Ebersol.

Since then, Britney has confirmed the relationship, and even posted a photo of herself and Ebersol on Instagram:

Charlie Ebersol and Britney Spears

The relationship is still fairly new, but from the outside, it seems that things are going well…which makes the latest news on how the two met that much more unexpected:

According to the Daily Mail, Ebersol was not only approved by Britney’s father, he was actually hand-selected by the elder Spears before he’d ever even met Britney.

This is nothing new, as Jamie Spears reportedly introduced Britney and David Lucado, and he has a history of screening the troubled pop star’s boyfriends.

What makes things different (and considerably creepier) this time around, is that Jamie and Charlie met at a business meeting in which Ebersol was pitching a reality show about Britney’s life.

Sources say Charlie agreed to go on a date with Britney after Jamie told him that his daughter “functions better with a man in her life.”

Some have suggested that Jamie was basically hinting to Ebersol that the deal could go forward as long as Charlie agreed to date Brit.

Of course, it’s also possible that Jamie just felt that Charlie would be a good match for his daughter and the two of them hit it off just as he thought they would. 

We hope that’s the case for Britney’s sake. She’s been through enough dude drama for five lifetimes.

Britney Spears Bikini Wallpaper


Most people can only fantasize about Britney Spears with wallpaper like this. David Lucado could wallpaper himself with Britney’s body and he let it slip away.

Nicki Minaj criticized for using Nazi imagery in her ‘Only’ lyric video

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj’s new lyric video for Only takes her stunt-queening to ridiculous, exhausting heights. I don’t even know where to begin. We can’t embed the video because of its NSFW lyrical stylings, but you can watch it here.

When I first heard the outrage and criticism over this video, I thought for sure people were exaggerating. Nicki wouldn’t be dumb enough to straight-up include Nazi imagery in her video, right? Wrong. She is totally awful enough to do it. Less than one minute into the song, Nicki’s likeness sits atop a throne in manner of Hitler. She’s flanked by war tanks and soldiers wearing red armbands that bear the Young Money logo, which looks a lot like the Nazi swastika. Then Chris Brown shows up as a dictator, and Drake (who is half Jewish) appears as a Pope. Yes, Breezy and Drake appear in a song together, and that’s the least WTF thing here.

I often find myself in the position of wondering whether artists’ actions are truly offensive or if I’m oversensitive to the possibility of offensiveness. In this case, there is no doubt. Nicki’s lyric video is absolutely offensive. Even worse, this wasn’t an accident at all. Nobody would create this video unless they intended to offend. Like I said, Nicki is a total stunt queen. She’ll say she only wanted to portray herself as a powerful leader, but she could have achieved that without invoking the symbols of Nazism. Nicki’s ignoring the controversy on Twitter, opting instead to endlessly retweet praise of her uneventful EMAs hosting gig.

If you were wondering whether Nicki has complete creative control over her career, look no further than her latest cover feature with Billboard to promote The Pinkprint. Nicki says, “I’m on 15 to 25 conference calls every few days strategizing with my team. I think a lot of artists sit back and have it done for them.” Oh, and the Nicki-Iggy feud is still alive and well. The journo asked “an innocent question” about Iggy and was met with a “withering, wordless stare.” Then an Iggy song started playing on the radio, and a Nicki staffer raced to change the channel. Ha.
