I’ve spent the last 20 minutes trying to decide which moments from the Beyonce Bowl to turn into GIFs but there are too many. The whole performance was a GIF, non? There are too many facial expressions. There was too much weave-thrashing right up at the crowd. There are too many times she goes from shock to anger to sexy to surprisingly sweet in a matter of 5 seconds. Full Story

In her new interview with Rolling Stone, Rihanna has confirmed that she and Chris Brown are back together, exactly four years after he beat the sh-t out of her on Grammy weekend. This, of course, is not news, as we’ve all seen the pictures and her twitter, but she hasn’t publicly spoken about it until now. Full Story

Beyonce did everything but levitate yesterday at her press conference. But then again, you know she’s saving it for the main show. That was just her opening act. Beyonce opens for herself. With the national anthem, live-live this time, and not just half-live, and now considered this year’s version of the mic drop belly rub. Full Story

It’s a month to Oscar which means it’s time to yell at Vanity Fair for its annual Hollywood Issue. As always, the limited diversity that’s featured in this supposed celebration of the best of the industry is hidden behind the cover. Of course, yes, they suck for this, totally. But if the Hollywood Issue is a reflection of Hollywood, well, isn’t this actually a pretty accurate reflection of Hollywood? Hollywood is white and no women over 40 are allowed. Full Story

Anne Hathaway’s speeches always start out good. Remember the Globes? And her tribute to Sally Field? That was good. Last night too. Last night she started out strong. She talked about her SAG membership, she expressed her love for her community. And if she had stopped there, we’d be cool. Full Story

This year we get the Afflecks... You know how hard the Afflecks have been working. Last night, from the moment they arrived, it was work time, did you see? Ben Affleck hit the carpet before Jennifer Garner did -- she must have been held up getting out of the car. As soon as she joined him though he was right in her ear -- downloading information/gossip/strategising, whatever it was, she dutifully nodded, understanding the game plan, gave him a quick kiss, and they were off. Full Story

Have you noticed that all of Lance Armstrong’s loves look the same? Or, more precisely, they all look very similar to Kristin Armstrong, his first wife? Sheryl Crow and Tori Burch in particular have the same face.  Lance is a very, very good liar and bully, but you know what he doesn’t get enough credit for? Lance, amazingly, fell exclusively for very discreet women. Full Story

Beyonce was remarkably restrained yesterday at the inauguration, don’t you think? Just imagine what it could have been: Instead of opening her number with her back to the million, legs spread apart, and an ass jiggle followed by a hair whip before singing the first bars of The Star Spangled Banner, Beysus surveyed her people majestically, without a coat on, of course. Full Story

As you know, she’s single again. Jason Trawick is no longer her boyfriend/conservator/business manager/baby-sitter. That position is now vacant. Which, I mean, it’s sad, totally, on so many levels. Because anyone who falls in love with her -- if one can truly fall in love with Britney Spears through the haze of all her meds -- would have to assume not only the role of boyfriend/fiancé/husband, in quick succession, but also the responsibility of being her governor. Full Story

I am all up in this Inauguration Porn. Can’t get enough. Beyonce just sang. And she was great. So I promise you, or I warn you, whichever is more appropriate, there will be another Beyonce post either later today or tomorrow when more pictures are available. For now, here she is, arriving with Jay-Z, and dressed like it’s the Oscars. Full Story
