There is nothing else. Nothing left. Nothing but Beyonce. You know, somehow JLO’s Slum Bear, Casper Smart, found a job choreographing for Nicki Minaj. That sh-t doesn’t feel shame but he should. Because everything else was a mess compared to what Beyonce delivered – her ENTIRE album, much of it reworked from On The Run for this, her MTV Video Vanguard moment, so that there could be no question about Who Is The Greatest? Now? It’s just Beyonce. Full Story

The ALS Ice Bucket challenge continues to steam-roll through popular culture, cluttering up everyone’s timelines and inspiring countless think pieces and rants, all while raising over forty million dollars for ALS research and support, which is tremendously awesome and everyone can just shut the f*ck up about how annoying the ice bucket challenge is because it’s WORKING. Full Story

During press for Guardians of the Galaxy last month, Chris Pratt said that he’d stolen his Star-Lord costume so that he could visit sick kids in the hospital dressed as his superhero character. And guess what? HE DID. Pratt visited the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles on Wednesday, screening Guardians for the kids, and he showed up dressed as Star-Lord. Full Story

I’m not sure it was hard for her. And for any of the professional athletes doing it. Like, she nominated Roger Federer who sits in an ice bath after every tennis match. They all do. But anyway, here’s Anna Wintour accepting her ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in response to her daughter Bee, and not to Gisele Bundchen, as noted in today’s open. Full Story

Sarah texted me yesterday after I posted that video of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. “That ALS bucket video is the most I’ve liked Affleck in a while. That’s also the most I’ve liked Jennifer Garner ever.” They were pretty cute, right? And then I saw that John Krasinski and Emily Blunt did their thing and I realised that even though it may not have been intentional, that was one of the few times we’ve seen the Afflecks be like how we imagine Blunt-Krasinskis to be. Full Story

Reese Witherspoon is in Capri. Reese Witherspoon is dancing like there’s no one watching. Oh but someone is always watching…with a smartphone. And they’ll send it to TMZ. Well, at least this time she’s not bitching out a cop for being un-American and reminding him what her name is. Full Story

I’m not finished talking, thinking about JLO. Sorry. It might be because we’re talking about “booty” on The Social today, the artwork she released for the upcoming single. I sit across the hall from Traci Melchor Full Story

Julia Roberts was on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night. Everyone else has said this already but now I want on that bandwagon too: his writing and production staff make the show. It’s ridiculous. The games are ridiculous. Like the dumbest ideas ever… And I laugh every single time. Full Story

Sarah has written at length about Comic-Con strategy – how often false hype can be generated out of San Diego (Sucker Punch) that ultimately leads to disappointment.
