To accept her lifetime achievement award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Jane Fonda wore a Tyler Richard pantsuit with her silver hair. It was a powerful look, fitting for a legend.

Jane Fonda looked just as dazzling as her 61-year-old legacy in Hollywood at the 2021 Golden Globe Awards. The legendary actress, activist and workout star appeared at the Feb. 28 virtual event to accept the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s lifetime achievement award in a cream-colored pantsuit from Richard Tyler. It was a powerful suit for a powerful woman, which she complemented with gorgeous jewelry from Pomellato La Gioia.

The choppy style was reminiscent of the ’70s — another era she was big in! Jane was also a leading figure in Hollywood for progressive change in the ’70s, and proved that she still is by encouraging her peers to be “in step with the emerging diversity that’s happening” during her acceptance speech.

"I have seen a lot of diversity in my long life and at times I have been challenged to understand some of the people I've met but inevitably if my heart is open and I look beneath the surface, I feel kinship."

Jane, who made her film debut in the 1960 feature Tall Story, is the 67th recipient and 16th woman to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award. The Barbarella star is known for decades of activism work in climate change, racial equality, feminism and anti-war movements, which the Hollywood Foreign Press Association acknowledged in an announcement issued in Jan. 2021.

“For more than five decades, Jane’s breadth of work has been anchored in her unrelenting activism, using her platform to address some of the most important social issues of our time,” the HFPA announced in a statement, per The Hollywood Reporter.

[AP]“Her undeniable talent has gained her the highest level of recognition, and while her professional life has taken many turns, her unwavering commitment to evoking change has remained,” the statement continued. “We are honored to celebrate her achievements at the 2021 Golden Globe Awards.” Tom Hanks and Jeff Bridges were the recipients of the Golden Globes’ lifetime achievement award in the previous two years.

Of course, this is not Jane’s first award from the Golden Globes! She has taken home seven Golden Globe awards since 1960 (her very first trophy was for “New Star of the Year” for her role as June Ryder in the romantic-comedy film, Tall Story).

In recent years, Jane has been acting on television in the Netflix comedy series Grace and Frankie opposite Lily Tomlin since the show’s premiere in 2015. The actress, who has been outspoken against Donald Trump, also resurrected her workout videos to encourage people to “exercise their right to vote” in Oct. 2020 (it looks like it worked).

When Chadwick Boseman earned a posthumous Golden Globes nomination for his work in ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’, many assumed he’d win. And so he has, and who better to accept the honor than his wife?

In a sorrowful yet oddly joyous moment, Chadwick Boseman was named the winner of the Lead Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama category at the 2021 Golden Globes. The nomination was his first, and sadly to be his only, from the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., as the young actor tragically died last summer at just 43 years old, after a 4-year battle with colon cancer. Shortly after his passing, he lit up the screen as Levee, a gifted but troubled trumpet player in Netflix’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,  the role he posthumously won for. 

In his absence, his wife and longtime love Taylor Simone Ledward accepted the award on his behalf from her home. Through tears, she tried to give a voice to her husband and say what she thought he would say if he were still with us. “He would thank God,” she said. “He would thank his parents. He would thank his ancestors for their guidance and sacrifices.” She went on to thank members of his team, both on his personal team and the team that worked with him on the Netflix film.

As she spoke, she continued to break, and it was clear her words had an affect on others as well. She thanked his fellow Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom co-stars, like Viola Davis, who was also seen crying from her own home.  She then added, “He would say something beautiful, something inspiring, something that would amplify that little voice that tells you can, that tells you to keep going, that calls you back to what you are meant to be doing at this moment in history.” She ended with a note to her man: “Hun, you keep’s coming.”

When Chadwick passed away in August 2020, it was revealed in the family’s official statement that Taylor Simone was with him “by his side,” along with his family when he died. Though he never publicly revealed his battle, Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016. Chadwick and Taylor Simone were equally private about their relationship. They were very infrequently seen out together, their last red carpet appearance was in Nov. 2019 at the premiere of Chadwick’s film 21 Bridges in New York City.

Chadwick starred in eight films during his 4 year battle with cancer, including Ma Rainey, Da 5 Bloods, and Marshall. He also starred as T’Challa in the final Avengers films, and the stand alone, Black Panther.

Catherine Zeta-Jones lit up the room when she arrived at the Golden Globe Awards as a presenter during the 2021 show on Feb. 28.

While presenting at the 2021 Golden Globe AwardsCatherine Zeta-Jones slayed the stage in a gorgeous gown. Before the show, Catherine also walked the socially distant red carpet with her husband, Michael Douglas, in the stunning look. She wore an off-the-shoulder black gown, and showed some leg thanks to a slit that ran all the way up one side of the dress.

Catherine completed her look with a pair of sky-high heels, which strapped around her ankle and featured an open toe. Her hair cascaded down her back, and she wore minimal accessories, so that the focus of the night was on her ensemble. She posed with her left leg sticking out to accentuate the sexy slit.

The coronavirus pandemic put a bit of the damper on the Globes this year, as there was only a limited red carpet before the show. Hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler also broadcasted from separate coasts, with Tina in New York and Amy in California. Presenters attended the event in-person, with some stars on the east coast and some on the west coast. However, most of the nominees were only able to attend virtually.

Catherine has attended the Globes many times over the years, and she always looks amazing on the red carpet. At the show in 2019, she walked alongside her husband, Michael Douglas, while wearing a glamorous, one-shouldered green dress with a thigh-high slit. The year before that, she stunned in a long-sleeved, sheer black gown with a deep plunging neckline.

Although Catherine is only at the Globes as a presenter this year, she’s experienced attending the show as a nominee in the past, as well. In 2000 she received a Best Supporting Actress nomination for her role in Traffic, and in 2002, she was nominated for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for starring in Chicago.

Sacha Baron Cohen gave audiences something to laugh about during his acceptance speech at the 2021 Golden Globe Awards! Check out part of his speech!

Sacha Baron Cohen accepted his Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture — Musical Or Comedy at the 2021 ceremony, and definitely left everyone talking after his speech. Upon accepting his Golden Globe award for Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, Sacha thanked one of his more infamous co-stars. “This movie couldn’t have been possible without my co-star, a fresh new talent who came from nowhere and turned out to be a comedy genius; I’m talking, of course, about Rudy Giuliani,” Sacha said to immense laughter.

— Bill Sharp (@BillSharph) March 1, 2021

“Who could get more laughs out of one un-zipping?” Sacha went on. The actor and writer continued, saying that Rudy’s role in the film practically launched his own career! “He went on to star in a string of comedy films. Hits like ‘Four Seasons Landscaping,’” and more improvised titles that the Sacha listed. Sacha gave a huge shout-out to his actual co-star Maria Bakalova and the creative team behind the film. Later in the evening, Sacha went on to win Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for the same film. What a big night!

Viewers shouldn’t be too surprised by the actor and writer’s speech. After all, Sacha starred in two of the most talked-about and thought-provoking movies of 2020, earning nominations for his work in both. Tonight, Sacha walked into (or logged onto) the awards ceremony with nominations in separate acting categories. He earned a nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for The Trial of the Chicago 7 and a nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.

Sacha Baron Cohen as Abbie Hoffman (right) and Jeremy Strong as Jerry Rubin (left) in ‘The Trial of the Chicago 7’ [Netflix].While the former title earned critical acclaim, the latter film put Sacha’s well-known character Borat back into the public eye. And the role actually landed him in a bit of a feud with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani! In the 2020 film, a sequel to the 2006 motion picture that debuted the character in mockumentary fashion, Sacha’s Borat interrupts a scene as it appears that Rudy was in a compromising position with the actress who plays Borat’s daughter – Maria Bakalova.

Sacha Baron Cohen as Borat Sagdiyev in ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’ [Everett].Once the film came out, Rudy tried to defend himself while Sacha put an emphasis on the scene in question. “I would say that if the president’s lawyer found what he did there ‘appropriate behavior,’ then heaven knows what he’s done with other female journalists in hotel rooms,” the actor said during his October 23 interview on Good Morning America. Clearly, the creative force behind the film was more than willing to stand by his production and call out Rudy.

But when it comes to his Golden Globe win this evening, it also shouldn’t shock his fans that he’s walked away with the golden statuette before. At the 2007 awards ceremony, Sacha won the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical for the first Borat film. Hopefully Sacha will keep the character alive for years to come!

Jamie Lee Curtis wowed in a satin Alex Perry dress to present at the 2021 Golden Globes. She looked so good, fans joked that they’ll start eating Activia yogurt!

We’re screaming and not because we’re watching Halloween. We’re just freaking out over Jamie Lee Curtis‘s gown at the 2021 Golden Globes! The 62-year-old Halloween star glided onto the award show stage in a satin yellow dress with a deep V-cut from Alex Perry to present the award for “Best Supporting Actress” in a film at Sunday night’s event on Feb. 28. The winner turned out to be Jamie’s “friend.”

She also thanked her glam team: hairstylist Sean James, makeup artist Jo Strettell and Jane Ross. Jamie also tagged the Instagram account for the studio Cathy Waterman, which designed her jewelry.

Fans took to Twitter to rave over Jamie’s gorgeous dress, and many couldn’t pass up on an opportunity to sneak in a joke about Activia (Jamie was an ambassador for the yogurt brand). “Jamie Lee Curtis looks so good … pass me the Activia,” one fan tweeted, while another wrote, “Jamie Lee Curtis proving Activia works! Looking stunning at the #GoldenGlobes.” A third fan gushed, “Okay, why does Jamie Lee Curtis look so good for her age? Like, Activia does a body good.”

Jamie has been on the receiving end of awards at the Golden Globes in past years, too! She has won two awards from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association: “Best Television Actress” in a musical/comedy series for her role in Anything But Love in 1990, and “Best Actress” in a musical/comedy motion picture for her role in True Lies in 1995.

Jamie wasn’t the only fashionable guest at the 2021 Golden Globes! Jane Fonda also made heads turn (through the computer screen, that is) in a cream pant suit, while Tiffany Haddish looked beautiful per usual in a sequined dress. The pandemic also didn’t stop these stars from dressing up, just like it didn’t stop the Hollywood Foreign Press Association from enlisting A-list celebrities like Kenan Thompson, Joaquin Phoenix, Awkwafina, Renée Zellweger, Kristen Wiig and Sterling K. Brown to present at the show.

Vanessa Kirby

Despite her breakout performance in The Crown as a young Princess Margaret, Vanessa Kirby, 32, wasn’t a Golden Globe nominee until now. She’s nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama after her stunning and gut-wrenching portrayal of a woman who lost her baby during childbirth. Vanessa’s performance in Pieces of a Woman was one of the best of 2020.

Tahar Rahim

Tahar Rahim, 39, is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama. He wowed with his incredible performance in the 2021 film The Mauritanian alongside Jodie Foster. To get into the character of Gitmo detainee Mohamedou Ould Slahi, Tahar dropped 20 pounds in less than a month. “It was not the usual way of acting, where I take my emotions and pull them out,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “This time it was so strong, my emotions led me somewhere. I would follow them to a place where I literally was discovering. As actors, we’re seeking to touch the truth; I felt I touched it a little.”

1. Daniel stars in ‘Judas and the Black Messiah.’

Daniel plays Fred Hampton, the deputy chairman of the Black Panther Party who was assassinated in 1969 at the young age of 22. The actor has gotten major awards season buzz for his terrific performance. The movie was released in Feb. 2021. Judas and the Black Messiah reunited Daniel with his Get Out co-star Lakeith Stanfield.

To embody Fred, who was a great orator, Daniel revealed he received opera training. “I realized that these speakers are not speaking, they’re singing,” he told NowThis. “And so, I want it to feel like a song and I wanted to attack it like it was a song. I think that’s why the notes that I read resonate ’cause it’s a tune.”

2. His breakout role was in ‘Get Out.’ 

Daniel starred as Chris Washington in the 2017 horror film Get Out, which was written and directed by Jordan Peele. Daniel’s terrific performance earned him his first Oscar nomination for Best Actor.

‘The Talk’s Sheryl Underwood is happy with the progress made in this country because of the Black Lives Matter movement — but she knows there’s a lot more that needs to be done!

Having joined CBS’ The Talk in 2011, Sheryl Underwood, 57, is known for her big personality and stating her opinions. February’s Black History Month has been no exception, especially when it comes to discussing the progress made under the Black Lives Matter movement in our country. “I am very proud,” Sheryl told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY during an episode of TVTalk on Instagram Live on Feb. 22.

The Black Lives Matter movement kicked off across the world during the summer of 2020. After the horrific murders by police officers against unarmed, black Americans, Breonna Taylor, 26, and George Floyd, 46, protests over their deaths began happening across the United States and elsewhere against police violence towards Black people. While most protests were peaceful, several  led to violent rioting and looting that divided our nation even further.

For Sheryl, getting your voice heard in a positive manner will always be critical to bringing about change. “First you have to march, and that gets everybody’s attention,” Sheryl said to HL, going on to break down the other bodies involved in bringing about much-needed change — including contact Attorney Generals. “And the legislative initiative. The fact with the Breonna Taylor situation and you think you’d have an Attorney General that would be cognitive of this, recognize this, that means more work needs to be done because now people understood the Grand Jury process. Now they’re understanding, ‘I can petition and I want my testimony,’” she went on.

“What I was told about this case was going to be made public by someone who’s name they may not know. That grand jury did what they needed to do,” Sheryl added. “Now we know the system needs to be changed. One, for Black Lives Matter, I’m really proud of this movement that became a global phenomenon. And then you learn the treatment of black people in other countries was similar and people had never heard about systemic racism.”

Systemic racism is also an important topic that Sheryl is passionate about. On Jan. 6, a group of white Trump supporters stormed the US capital in Washington DC, resulting in even more conversation when it comes systemic racism in our country. Although the videos are hard to watch, Sheryl believes these chain of events have gotten people talking. “People didn’t want to address white supremacy and law enforcement and now you see the capital being over-run by white supremacists and even white people are going, “Hell no!” Sheryl added. “And now that I know, I’m going to do something about it. That’s what it’s all about.”

Black History Month is just the beginning for Sheryl, and she’s happy to see it being celebrated during the month of February and beyond. “Black History Month is the start of the journey but it doesn’t mean it needs to stop,” Sheryl said. “Black history is being made each and every day.” Catch Sheryl and her co-stars on The Talk which airs weekdays on CBS at 2 p.m. EST/1 p.m. PST.

Britney Spears ‘loves having teenagers’ and ‘adores her boys’ a source spills to HL! The pop star was recently spotted enjoying a hike with Sean and Jayden.

Britney Spears‘ sons are almost all grown up! The In The Zone singer is a proud mom to teenage sons Sean Preston, 15, and Jayden James Federline, 14, with ex-husband Kevin Federline — and the 39-year-old puts a “big effort” in to keep up with her boys. “Britney loves having teenagers, she adores her boys,” an insider close to the pop star spilled to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “She’s always made a big effort to get into the things that her boys are into. So right now, that means a lot of video games,” they explained, noting it’s one of the “sweet ways” she “bonds” with Sean and Jayden.

“[Video games] are not her thing but she’ll play with them because that’s what they love to do,” our source added. An avid dancer and yogi, Britney is known for her love of the outdoors — especially the beach — which is something she’s also imparted on the two teenagers. Recently, the Crossroads actress was spotted out on a scenic hike with Sean and Jayden in the Thousand Oaks area just outside of L.A. Both boys were taller than their pop star mom in a sweet family photo, which showed Britney rocking the same grey track shorts with white trim that she rocked in a Valentine’s Day tribute that boyfriend Sam Asghari, 27, shared. It’s unclear who took the sweet family photo, but Sam — who starred in the “Slumber Party” video — is a likely possibility.

“[Sean and Jayden] also very active outdoors, lots of hiking and playing in her pool. And they’ve started working out with her in the gym,” the source told HL. “They’re growing up fast and Britney could not be more proud of them, she beams when she talks about them.” A second source echoed that having teens has made Britney sentimental: she herself was only 16-years-old when “…Baby One More Time” was released in 1998.

“Now that her kids are teenagers, it is really wild because she remembers when she was a teenager, and her career was just starting around that time in her life,” a second insider close to the singer revealed. “So, seeing her kids allowed to just be kids and be so innocent, it makes her smile that the sky’s the limit when it comes to them and who they will become…having teenagers is such a fun and rewarding experience,” they reflected.

Sean and Jayden split their time between mom Britney and dad Kevin who split after a three marriage in 2007. Since splitting, Britney has been under a legal conservatorship, which was the recent focus of the New York Times film Framing Britney Spears. Despite her legal circumstances, the exes share custody of their sons. As of a Sept. 2019 agreement, the “Slave 4 U” singer has 30 percent unsupervised custodial rights. Our second source tells us Britney knows Kevin is “a great father” and “loves all that he does” for the boys. “She wants to be the best mother she can be…Kevin is a great teacher and role model for them, and she wants the best for them,” the insider said.

New mom Gigi Hadid has arrived in Milan for Fashion Week! The supermodel has jetted into Italy five months after welcoming a baby girl.

Supermodel Gigi Hadid, 25, has returned to her jet setting lifestyle, five months after welcoming a baby girl named Khai in September 2020. The new mom flew into Italy on February 28 ahead of Milan Fashion Week, and flashed her toned midriff in an unbuttoned cardigan. She paired the black and white top with wide-leg grey jeans, a bright green beanie, and black leather boots. The blonde beauty also donned a black protective face mask, white sunglasses, and layered gold necklaces.

She was joined by her sister Bella Hadid and fellow supermodel Irina Shayk as they jetted into the fashion capital for the upcoming designer shows. 24-year-old Bella stepped out in a brown jacket with a plunging neckline and a belt around her waist. She also rocked an orange button-down, small rectangular sunglasses and wide-leg pants as she pulled her brunette tresses back into a hair clip. Meanwhile, Irina opted for a pair of black skinny jeans, a bright blue cardigan and knee high black boots. She also wore a black protective face mask, dark shades, and a black cap.

Just a few days prior, Gigi took to her Instagram Story to offer fans a rare glimpse at her pregnancy experience with boyfriend Zayn Malik. She also gave fans a glimpse inside the couple’s life since welcoming their adorable little girl. First up, she shared a photo of Khai’s feet in tiny pajamas with the prompt, “post a picture from this date.” She added, (“doing it with dates just makes it easier/faster to find pics!! also more fun imo”). Gigi explained that Khai was napping, so she was using the downtime to share never-before-seen photos.

Some of the sweet snaps included photos of the former One Direction star walking Khai in a stroller on the family’s Pennsylvania farm, a photo of Khai’s tiny feet in November, and a pic of the newborn wearing a pink, personalized snowsuit. “One of my favorite baby gifts,” she captioned a photo of the suit, which featured her name embroidered on the back. “From my [Tommy Hilfiger] family.” Too cute!

She loves it there. One thing has nothing to do with the other, but she is seriously considering joining the RHOM cast,” a source spilled to HL EXCLUSIVELY. “Nothing has been signed yet, but she’s thinking about it. She’s just a little skeptical because she doesn’t know if it’s right for her right now,” the insider continued. “She’s kind of playing devil’s advocate right now but there’s definitely been conversations.”

Just days after our report, Larsa took to her Instagram Story, confirming she was “still thinking about [it].” A second source told HL that, “Larsa’s attorney advised her it wouldn’t be a good idea [to return to the show], but she’s still thinking about it. She knows it comes with great financial gain, so she’s still on the fence.” The Real Housewives of Miami ran for three seasons on Bravo between 2011 and 2013, with Larsa appearing in the main cast alongside Lea BlackAdriana de Moura, Alexia Echevarria and Marysol Patton. Although the show has been off the air for nearly a decade years, Andy Cohen has previously confirmed he was looking to revive the series.

Melody Holt Reveals Exactly How She Found Out Husband Martell Got Another Woman Pregnant

On the latest episode of ‘Love & Marriage: Huntsville,’ Martell confirmed that, yes, he fathered a child with his mistress. Now his wife Melody reveals how she uncovered the truth.

Melody Holt is revealing the remarkable way she says she found out that her husband Martell was having a baby with his mistress. The Love & Marriage: Huntsville star shares her story in an EXCLUSIVE interview with HollywoodLife and her account is vastly different from the one her ex recounted on the Feb. 27 episode.

On the latest installment of OWN’s hit unscripted show, Maurice Scott looked stunned as his 39-year-old buddy confirmed months of internet rumors by admitting that, yes, he’s having a child with another woman. “[I] immediately told [Melody] that that one person, she was pregnant. And I haven’t confided in anybody,” Martell said. “I haven’t told anyone but you guys. So, she is pregnant.” Asked specifically if his mistress is having his child, he responded, “I would say so. The timing. It’s on time.”

But, while Martell told his buddies that he told Melody the news because he uncovered her alleged infidelity, she claims she extracted the info out of him another way. That’s because the mom-of-four claims a friend had a revelation in a dream and tipped her off.

“It was very interesting,” Melody, 35, says. “A mutual friend…she called me and she said, ‘Hey Mel, I just want to check on you.’” The friend also told Melody about a dream that she’d had. While Melody doesn’t reveal the exact contents of the dream, she does say that it prompted her to approach her husband of 12 years.

“About a day or two after that I said to Martell, ‘So, when [are] you planning on letting your kids know about this baby you got on the way?’” Melody claims Martell looked shocked in response. “He just told me, ‘She just told me about it’ and all that… Whatever.”

Melody says she didn’t hesitate to confront her husband after her friend shared her vision. “I’m a dreamer too, so I can appreciate… God reveals things to me through dreams all the time, since I was a kid,” she says. “So, when she said it to me, I believed it enough to boldly say, ‘When are you going to tell your kids about XYZ?’”  Asked when she thinks Martell would have told her about the baby, she can only speculate. “Probably never. I have no idea,” she says.

For the record, Melody denies stepping out on Martell during their marriage. “What I will say – and I told Martell this – anyone that I talked to or gave the time of day to [I did] when I had left, moved out, got my own place, was planning on divorcing you. I don’t consider that cheating on you.”

Melody previously told HL that she decided to end her marriage and leave Martell in April last year because she didn’t like his attitude and statements that he was making about relationships. It seemed to her, she said that he was “trying to figure out a way to do wrong better.” “You haven’t grown yet and I was just at the point where I’ve [given] you three years at this point. I don’t have any more time to give you to grow up,” she said about the self-confessed cheater.

Her decision to leave came a month before she found out about the baby, not the other way around, she says. “I left him about a month before I found out,” she says. “I was already out. I had moved out. So, yeah, really for me [the baby news] was confirmation…”

On and off screen the Holts are now trying to navigate their new reality, which includes divorce and co-parenting. As for their four kids – Mariah, 9, Martell II, 8, Maliah, 4, and Malani, 1 – Melody says she’s helping them to adjust by “showering them with extra love.” She says she lets her children know that “both of us love them so much and they’re so special and they’re not the first kids where their parents don’t stay together.” “I talk to them like that,” she says. “Just try to give them some positivity when it comes to everything, because it is a lot.”

As for Martell she doesn’t ask about his new baby. “I don’t ask him questions about that. That’s his situation. I’m moving on over here.” Love & Marriage: Huntsville airs on OWN on Saturdays at 9/8pm Central

Nick Jonas made his ‘SNL’ hosting debut! He opened the show with a hilarious opening monologue and had a little help by older brother Kevin in the audience.

Nick Jonas may have just had the best opening monologue on Saturday Night Live this season! The “Jealous” singer walked out in a bright orange jacket with long pockets as he expressed just how thrilled he was to be there. His older brother Kevin Jonas, 33, hilariously popped up in the audience with a burning question for the younger JoBro. “Hey Nick, I am so excited to be here. And I gotta ask — are we good?” Kevin began. “Because I see you’re doing a lot of solo stuff? Are we still a band?” he asked.

Nick assured Kevin — who married wife Danielle back in 2009 — that all was hood in the neighborhood. “Yes, the band is still together,” he replied. “Are you sure, because I just bought a house?” a worried Kevin went on, referencing his New Jersey mansion that he purchased back in 2020. The 33-year-old then delivered the best line of the entire monologue: “And just one question. ‘MMMbop — was that us?” he asked. “MMMBop” just so happens to be the smash 1997 single from the Hanson Brothers — not the Jonas Brothers — but fans have often compared the groups over the years!

Nick was confirmed to be both host and musical guest on the Feb. 27 episode during Regé-Jean Page‘s episode the week before. “A dream come true. Let’s get it @nbcsnl!! See you February 27th!” the 28-year-old tweeted after the exciting news dropped. Nick has had the opportunity to take the stage at Studio 8H in the past: back in 2016, he was booked as musical guest during an episode hosted by Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Wife Priyanka Chopra, 38, was so thrilled for Nick’s milestone she sent him a huge balloon bouquet to celebrate! “So, this happened…” Nick said in a selfie-filmed video posted to social media, turning his camera around to show off the balloons that read “SNL” and “Congratulations, Nick.” How sweet! “That’s pretty cool. Thank you, babe!” he noted as he showed off the rest of the Instagram-worthy display.

Nick also documented the experience of prepping for the show on social media. “I’ve just arrived in beautiful, snowy New York for SNL week,” he confirmed in another video shared to social media on Feb. 22. “Let’s so this!” he excitedly added. Fresh off his hosting announcement, Nick also surprised his fans with something they’e been waiting for: brand new music! The New Jersey native dropped his sexy new single “Spaceman” last week, and is set to perform the track (which he co-wrote) on the NBC sketch series for the first time.

So excited to start this journey with all of you. I made this album while doing what most of us have been doing this past year, sitting at home and hoping for better days ahead. There are four themes we will explore on the album…

Distance. Indulgence. Euphoria. Commitment.

“So excited to start this journey with all of you. I made this album while doing what most of us have been doing this past year, sitting at home and hoping for better days ahead,” he tweeted on Feb. 25, revealing Spaceman is also the name of his next project. “There are four themes we will explore on the album…Distance. Indulgence. Euphoria. Commitment,” he wrote, seemingly alluding to inspiration from his two-year marriage to Priyanka. “Most of the songs are pretty much just love letters [to her], which when I can’t articulate the way I feel with my words with no music, I go to the studio,” he confessed last week to Apple Music host Zane Low.

Nick Jonas pulled double duty on ‘SNL’ as host and musical guest! He performed his new single ‘Spaceman’ for the first time live at Studio 8H.

Nick Jonas brought his latest single to life at Studio 8H. The 28-year-old performed his freshly dropped track “Spaceman” (also the name of his forthcoming album) during Saturday Night Live‘s Feb. 27 episode. The iconic SNL stage wasn’t even recognizable as he opened the performance standing under a blue night in the effect of a rocket ship. The lasers elevated the performance behind him, moving along to the electro R&B beat as he showed off incredible vocals. Singing along to a guitar, Nick sounded amazing with little support from his back-up singers. A moon decal could also be seen at Nick’s feet, fitting with the outer space them of the tune.

The singer last released solo music in 2018 before reuniting with siblings Kevin Jonas, 33, and Joe Jonas, 31, as part of trio the Jonas Brothers. In the new track, the New Jersey native likens himself to feeling like “spaceman from the dark side of the moon” as he attempts to navigate a difficult relationship. “You still think we got some problems / Find somebody you can solve with / I feel like a spaceman / I feel like a spaceman,” he also sings on the futuristic, R&B sounding tune produced by Greg Kurstin.

While talking about his upcoming, Nick confessed that most of his songs are now tributes his gorgeous wife of just over two years Priyanka Chopra, 38. “She loves it. Most of the songs are pretty much just love letters, which when I can’t articulate the way I feel with my words with no music, I go to the studio. And I’m grateful to have that because it makes her happy, and that’s most important,” he said to Apple Music host Zane Low. He also delved into how he came up with the concept for the sexy new tune, which he co-wrote with producer Greg and Maureen “Mozella” McDonald.

A post shared by NICK JONɅS (@nickjonas)

“I think the key for me was trying to find a way to give this idea a persona, give it a name,” he began. “So ‘Spaceman’ came into my mind because I was thinking, ‘What’s the one thing that all of us have felt during this time?’ It’s just completely disconnected from the world. We’ve gotten so accustomed to looking at a screen instead of human interaction, and I think the thing that keeps us all encouraged and hopeful is just the idea of knowing that there will be a tomorrow when this isn’t our reality, and I think the body of work as a whole tracks that,” he revealed, teasing the rest of his new album.

America may be in the middle of a pandemic and new Presidency, but ‘SNL’s ‘Marjorie Taylor-Greene had her focus elsewhere on ‘Weekend Update’!

Cecily Strong‘s ‘Marjorie Taylor Greene‘ dropped by Colin Jost and Michael Che‘s ‘Weekend Update‘ on Feb. 27. The SNL actress was (once again) a dead ringer for the Republican from Georgia rocking a slightly tousled blonde hair do. Cecily’s Marjorie kept the eye-brow raising comments coming throughout her short bit, which opened with her sitting on a gun. “I think I’m sitting on gun. Is this mine or yours?” she questioned Colin, who assured her that he was pretty sure it was hers.

After going on a bizarre rant about how she believes in “science,” she revealed a t-shirt with a major misspell underneath her red blazer. “Trust the sience,” it read — accidentally missing the “c” from the word. Of all the things plaguing America, she informed Colin of one bothering her the most: the current news surrounding Hasbro’s Potato Head toys, which are ditching the “Mr.” and “Mrs.” titles and going gender neutral. “Did you hear they’re trying to cancel Mr. Potato Head? The radical Liberals just won’t let him be proud of his big ol’, God given potato penis,” she said. “But I’m the crazy one?” she then questioned. “All I’m saying is, if Mr. Potato Head is allowed to marry another Mr. Potato Head — I’d kill myself. Is that crazy?”

Cecily’s Marjorie didn’t stop there, describing herself as the “it” girl when in Congress before further explaining her beliefs in science and gender roles. “Science teaches us that there are two genders because our bodies are made my God in a certain way, okay? For women, it’s milk, milk, lemonade and around the corner fudge is made,” she explained to a confused Colin. “And for boys, it’s big hairy chests just like King Kong, crack in the butt, two balls, ding-dong. That’s science! We’re all endowed with traditional gender roles. I’m a woman, so it’s my job to bully, threaten and fight my female colleagues. Scientists call these cat fights and it’s what girls do,” she then said.

Saturday Night Live‘s 46th season has carried on without a hitch despite the COVID-19 pandemic. After wrapping up the 45th season with three SNL At Home episodes — a first for the series in over four decades — show runner Lorne Michaels created a strict set of quarantine rules for the cast and all hosts and musical guests. “There’s the sheer physical challenge of what we can do within protocols. We’ve been getting support from the governor’s office, which is important because the audience is a huge part of it,” the Canadian-born producer said to Vulture back in September.

He hesitated to use the word “normalcy” amidst the pandemic, going on to note that the group working on-set would be smaller at things like table reads and dress rehearsals. “The physical problems of doing it — number of people who can be in the studio, number of people who can be in the control room, how you separate the band so that they’re not in any jeopardy — all of those are part of the meetings we’ve been having,” he explained. “[Rehearsals] will also be smaller. I don’t think we’ll go in 25 minutes or 30 minutes long at dress rehearsal. We’ll be tighter,” he noted.

Keith Raniere, the leader of NXIVM, claimed that women in his cult chose to be branded with his initials as ‘an honorary thing’ and ‘tribute’ in his first interview since being sentenced to prison for 120 years.

NXIVM’s Keith Raniere, 60, is speaking out in prison for the first time since being found guilty of federal sex trafficking and forced labor charges. The cult leader insisted he “didn’t come up with” the idea to carve his initials, K.A.R., above the bikini lines of the women involved in the secret master-slave group Dominus Obsequious Sororium (DOS), and is “against tattooing”, in an interview with Dateline, which aired on Feb. 26. He claimed the women themselves chose to be branded with the letters as “an honorary thing” and a “tribute” and it made him feel “almost embarrassed.”

“I didn’t come up with the branding. If you look at my long-term partners, I’m even against tattooing,” he said in the interview. “I don’t have tattoos. None of my partners have tattoos. If my partners want to get them, that’s up to them. But I am dissuasive of it.”

He also claimed the women refused to take painkillers during the branding so they could “feel it.”

“They even chose to do it without anaesthetics so that they would feel it,” he said. “No, no ordering whatsoever. Someone being branded they agreed to it as one of the four conditions to even be considered for entrance into the sorority and that was said in testimony,” he continued.

“No [I didn’t try to stop it] but I was slightly in a way almost embarrassed,” he added. “At first I thought ‘well if it was Albert Einstein‘s initials then no one would care.’ And then I thought ‘If it was Brad Pitt‘s initials, maybe you’d have some jealous husband.’ But that’s not what I’m like so I took it as an honorary thing – a tribute thing. And that brand was going to be tattooed over anyway. It was symbolic.”

Keith Raniere started NXIVM in the 1990s. (NBC)

Raniere, who was nicknamed “Vanguard” in his inner circle, spoke by phone from a maximum security federal penitentiary in Tucson, Arizona, where he is serving 120 years for turning sex cult followers into slaves and sexually abusing a 15-year-old, in the interview.

After starting NXIVM, which claimed to be a self-help group that offered personal development, in Albany, NY in the 1990s, Raniere formed DOS, a secret master/slave club in which women, including India Oxenberg and Sarah Edmonson, were branded, turned into sex slaves, and allowed to only eat 500 calories a day while obeying their “masters” for a lifetime.

In addition to discussing the branding with Dateline, he denied using “collateral” to blackmail women after some cult followers testified in court that he forced them to give him embarrassing documents and naked photos of themselves.

“I did not take the collateral at all. I did not have possession of the collateral whatsoever. Not not seen but did not possess,’ he said while also adding that he does “apologize” for participating in the “horrible situation.”

“Yes I apologize for my participation in all this pain and suffering. I have clearly participated… this is a horrible situation,” he said while also denying that he was not the “cause” of it. “I say damage I’ve participated in because I don’t believe we’re always the cause of all of it. We are the cause more or less but all the damages I can fathom I participated in, I feel responsible for. It’s not just a matter of ‘did I cause it all myself?’ I’m involved in the cause of it and for that that haunts me forever.”

Although he admitted to his wrongdoing, Raniere still claimed his innocence. “Well, being innocent of crimes and being innocent if you will of any wrongdoing or you know, people cause damages inadvertently and well-intentioned damages… and they don’t mean to damage but it happens,” he said.

Raniere was sentenced to prison in Oct. 2020 after 15 of his victims spoke out or had statements read in court. Actress Allison Mack, 38, who was also involved in the cult, was charged with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy in Apr. 2018. She pleaded guilty and is now on house arrest while awaiting her sentencing, which could have her spending up to 40 years in prison.

Kourtney Kardashian, 41, is the latest KarJenner sis to jump in Kylie Jenner‘s makeup chair — and the mother-of-three revealed her top parenting tips. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star got very candid in Kylie’s new YouTube video which showed the 23-year-old cosmetics mogul doing her big sister’s makeup. “What is one piece of parenting advice that you would give me as a newer mom?” Kylie asked the Poosh founder, to which she replied, “Letting [Stormi] be seen and heard and understood.”

Kourtney added, “Whatever she’s feeling, validate those feelings. Letting them really feel like they have the freedom to be themselves.” While Kylie’s daughter Stormi celebrated her third birthday in February, Kourtney’s kids are also growing up very quickly! She sharesMason, 11, Penelope, 8, and Reign, 6 – with her ex Scott Disick. In the video, Kourtney also asked, “When you do someone’s makeup, do you notice things about them that you never noticed?” to which Kylie responded, “Not really. I noticed that you and Kendall [Jenner] have a really similar nose and I love your noses … And you and Rob [Kardashian] look the most alike.”

In the video, Kourtney also confronted her sister Kim Kardashian, 40, for infamously saying she was the “least exciting” family member to look at. Kim’s much quoted diss came up while she was in the makeup chair. “Okay so I need to know how you really feel about — in the moment — about Kim saying you were the least interesting to look at?” Kylie said. “Oh my God, I was literally crying, do you remember?,” Kourtney replied. “Why would someone in my family say something like that?’”

Nevertheless, it’s clear she’s since moved on from her famous fight with Kim that went down on the family’s reality TV show in in 2017. “Obviously I could laugh at it — it’s like a funny thing … then Kim said she meant to say you’re the least…like..something else.” Kourt couldn’t quite remember exactly what Kim meant to say, so she gave her little sis a call. “Yeah I don’t know, that was such a low blow,” Kim said, while talking on the phone to Kourt while they filmed the YouTube video.

Kendall Jenner was called out after allegedly using a ‘body filter’ in a new Instagram video that showed her kneeling in a bathroom while wearing a patterned white bikini.

Kendall Jenner‘s latest bikini video is causing criticism from some online followers after one page claimed she photoshopped her waist. The 25-year-old model took to her Instagram story to share a new clip of herself kneeling on a bathroom floor and posing in the white swimsuit, which had colored patterns on it, and although she looked flawless, the Instagram page, @celebplastic, pointed out what they called a “photoshop fail.”

In the repost, the user showed how a piece of Kendall’s waist on her left side seemed to appear and then disappear for less than a second, suggesting she made that part of her frame thinner than it really is. “Kendall Jenner’s most recent photoshop fail. her stomach & belly button glitch because she was using a body filter. this is so heartbreaking,” the caption for the repost read. “she has one of the most toned & fit bodies I’ve ever seen and she still uses editors. it’s really sad.”

Another account called @igfamousbydana also reposted the video and comparison with a lengthy caption about how “unfortunate” it is that Kendall allegedly chose to use a body filter.

“We know the #Kardashians use body filters when posting videos – Here’s Kendall’s body filter glitching,” the caption read. “It’s unfortunate that she’s editing a smaller waist and removing the normal curve that happens when sitting (even if you’re skinny or a supermodel) contributing to unrealistic standards and expectations of what human bodies look like.

Kendall is so gorgeous, and this is so unnecessary,” the user added. “Do better, @kendalljenner.

This isn’t the first time Kendall has been accused of using photoshop on one of her social media photos. The dark-haired beauty got attention in 2018 for seemingly altering her stomach area in a topless photo that showed her sitting on a sink with a towel wrapped around her head and wearing underwear. Followers noticed that the wall in the pic seemed to slightly wave in which is what a photo editing app can do when flattening out areas.

Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen was spotted going for a swim at a Sydney beach, after relocating to Australia with his wife Isla Fisher.

Sacha Baron Cohen is Sydney’s newest resident! The Borat star has moved Down Under with his Australian wife, Isla Fisher and their three kids — and he’s already blending in with the locals. The British comedian, 49, was seen going for a dip on February 27, and showed off his fit physique as he went shirtless on a Sydney beach — see the pics here. He walked along the golden sand, before going for a swim in the ocean, rocking nothing but a pair of black swimming trunks.

It comes less than six months after Sacha released the long awaited sequel to the 2006 mockumentary Borat. The controversial film attracted much attention, including from  Donald Trump. The then-POTUS was asked about a viral clip from the movie, which showed former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani, 76, seemingly in a compromising position. Reporter Steve Herman, who was on Air Force One, said Trump claimed he had no idea what happened. “To me, he’s a creep,” he said of Sacha, adding, “I don’t know what happened. But years ago, you know, he [Sacha] tried to scam me and I was the only one who said no way. That’s a phony guy and I don’t find him funny.”

Just one week prior, footage emerged of Rudy Giuliani interacting with Borat’s teenage daughter, played by 24-year-old actress Maria Bakalova. Rudy follows Maria, who is under the guise of Borat’s daughter named Tutar Sagdiyev, into a hotel room for a “drink,” per The Hollywood Reporter. The politician then asked her for her phone number, as he lied down on the bed and puts his hand down his pants.

Rudy claimed to have called the police after the interaction, upon realizing he’d been pranked. “The Borat video is a complete fabrication. I was tucking in my shirt after taking off the recording equipment,” he tweeted. “At no time before, during, or after the interview was I ever inappropriate. If Sacha Baron Cohen implies otherwise, he is a stone-cold liar. … As soon as I realized it was a set up, I called the police, which has been noted in [The Hollywood Reporter] article on July 8th.”

Demi Lovato, a member of the LGBTQ+ community, recently spoke out against the trend of gender reveal parties, saying they were ‘transphobic’.

Demi Lovato has spoken out against the popular trend of gender reveal parties. The singer, 28, shared an infographic to Instagram on February 25, which detailed why the event could be deemed transphobic. “This is not about being politically correct, it’s about being correct. The refusal to acknowledge this stems from a misunderstanding of what transphobia is,” her caption read. A source close to the former Disney starlet revealed that Demi’s decision to speak out was very “personal” to her.

“Demi is very committed to be an ally to the trans community. She feels a real responsibility to speak up because she has this huge platform, she knows the impact she can have. And, she identifies as queer,” the source told HollywoodLife exclusively. “This is her community, it’s personal for her. The past few years she’s made a big effort to learn more and to understand the trans experience more. And the more she learns, the more she sees all that needs to change.” The insider explained that Demi hoped to “share what she has learned” with her fans.

“She wants to open people’s eyes and hearts. Demi is not afraid of any sort of backlash. She will continue to push for trans rights and to use her platform to help educate people,” the source explained. “Demi’s a hopeful person, and she does believe that things can change and get better. But she knows if no one ever speaks up, then nothing will change. And she’s not afraid to be the person that speaks up.”

Demi previously revealed she identifies as queer, and gave credit to the 1999 movie Cruel Intentions. During an interview with Queer Eye‘s Tan France in October 2020, she was asked to describe the moment she realized she was “queer in general”. “It was definitely when I was young and should not have been watching Cruel Intentions but I did and it was that scene where they made out on the park lawn,” she told Tan, adding, “I was just like ‘Oh wait a minute — I really like that, I wanna try it.”

Mary-Kate Olsen looked happy and relaxed as she sipped on a glass of wine while out for dinner with John Cooper in NYC.

Mary-Kate Olsen, 34, stepped out for dinner with Brightwire founder and CEO John Cooper. The Row founder and financial news entrepreneur were spotted at restaurant Estiatorio Milos on Friday, Feb., 26 in New York City — see the photos via Daily Mail here. The duo were seated with another couple as they enjoyed what appeared to be a seafood dinner outdoors. Mary-Kate looked particularly relaxed as she sipped on a glass of white wine, and later a martini.

The actress turned fashion designer arrived to the eatery bundled up in a black coat over a matching ensemble and cozy beanie hat, which she removed as she sat down at the table next to John. She also wore a protective black face mask as she entered the venue. At one point, she kept her hair up in a ponytail, later removing it as the evening went on. While her all-black look was simple and understated, she accessorized with a unique cuff earring as well as black booties with a silver heel. Later, Mary-Kate and John departed the restaurant together.

John is best known for founding Brightwire back in 2008, which is an English language news agency focused on the financial and business space. The Michigan-based company remains owned by John, who has raised millions in venture capital over the last decade to grow the successful business. The sighting with Mary-Kate comes just a month after she reached a divorce settlement with husband of nearly six years Pierre Olivier Sarkozy, 51.

The pair’s split became public in the spring of 2020, with Mary-Kate requesting an emergency court order after signing a divorce petition on April 17. At the time, courts were closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The filing was denied after being deemed non-essential, and Mary-Kate filed once again on May 25 — the exact date the courts re-opened. The divorce was finalized nine months later in Jan. 2021 via video hearing over Zoom.

“So, we have reached a final agreement,” Olivier Sarkozy’s lawyer Michael Mosberg could be heard saying to New York Judge Lori Sattler during the the Zoom regarding the divorce. “And we appreciate the time and latitude that you’ve given us. … It’s been incremental, but we continue to make forward progress…We, as of this morning, reached the final agreement. We just need to revise that agreement, get it executed and get it to you, which we will have by the end of next week, but … the deal is now done,” he confirmed.

Actor Steve Kazee is opening up about his wedding plans with fiancée Jenna Dewan as the Movember brand ambassador gets ready to celebrate their son Callum’s 1st birthday!

Steve Kazee, 45, and fiancée Jenna Dewan, 40, became proud parents to son Callum, 11 months, right before the Coronavirus pandemic! The couple have been enjoying their time with their little boy, but with everything happening around the pandemic, it’s made them put a hold on future family plans. “It’s so hard to even think about a wedding right now,” Steve told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY from his LA home on Feb. 18 while discussing his partnership with Movember’s Family Man parenting tool. “I hate to sound like a cliché, but everything really changed once COVID hit. It’s hard to feel celebratory at the time and it’s hard to feel like we want to be celebrating our lives and it just feels like the wrong time.”

The couple began dating back in 2018 shortly after the former dancer announced her split from husband Channing Tatum, 40. After being photographed for the first time in November of that year, Jenna — who is also mom to daughter Everly, 7, with the Magic Mike actor — announced she was expecting with the former Broadway actor. Five months later in Feb. 2020, Jenna and Steve confirmed their engagement — welcoming son Callum on March 6.

Although there is a ring on his fiancée’s finger, a piece of paper won’t change anything for the couple — but that doesn’t mean they don’t want things solidified in the near future! “For us, there’s no difference between where we are right now and where we would be the day after a wedding ceremony,” Steve added. “There’s no hurry. There’s no rush for us. It’s something I think we both very much want, but when the time is right. The world has just been — it’s been too much lately to feel like celebrating on that level. Nothing at the moment, but I’m sure at some point.”

Another project that’s on Jenna’s brain is expanding their family, which Steve hints is more on Jenna’s brain than his at the moment! “Yeah, we’ve talked about it!” Steve exclaimed. “We’ve talked about it specifically because this sort of situation that we’re in. We don’t know when life will get back to the hustle and the bustle and we have all this time right now and it has been really wonderful to have this much time with your children in spite of the situation,” he explained.

“It’s been a real blessing for us and the real sort of silver lining with all of this. So we’ve talked about it!” he went on. “But that’s about as far as it’s gotten at this point. I have a lot of different feelings. I want a lot of kids, but at the same time, I worry a lot about the world at the moment. Where we are. There’s a certain responsibility you have to take into consideration rather than, ‘Oh, I want more kids.’ Definitely a conversation!”

While Steve, Jenna and their growing family continue to stay safe & healthy at home, Steve is putting a lot of his focus on his health. As a Movember Family Man ambassador, becoming a father has really put things into perspective for the new dad. “Having just become a father, almost a year ago and having being gifted a daughter from a previous marriage and already feeling like a step-father to her,” Steve said. “I’ve been in her life now for 3 years and so I jumped at the opportunity to be a part of something that was addressing the conversation around men and father. It’s such a complex, complex problem. I think the way they’re forthcoming confronting it is a smart way of handling it. I thought it was a great idea to open up the conversation of men’s health, more transparent than I think it’s been for generations.”

After putting out a desperate plea and $500K reward for the safe return of her stolen French bulldogs, Lady Gaga’s beloved pets have been returned safe and sound.

Lady Gaga has to be breathing a major sigh of relief and crying tears of joy, as her French bulldogs Koji and Gustav have been recovered after being stolen at gunpoint in Hollywood on Feb. 24. A woman turned the pups into an LAPD station on the night of Feb. 26, HollywoodLife.com confirmed with the Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson, who said the dogs were  “unharmed. It’s unclear whether the woman will receive the $500,000 reward Gaga put up just hours earlier in the day in a desperate plea for the safe return of her pets.

Gaga, 34, had been absolutely beside herself with heartache ever since Feb. 24. That night her friend and dog sitter Ryan Fischer took her three Frenchies out for a walk in Hollywood when two men drove up in a white Nissan Altima and ambushed him on the sidewalk. They tried to steal the dogs, while Ryan valiantly tried to protect them. One of the suspects pulled out a gun and shot Ryan in the chest, as the two men grabbed Koji and Gustav and sped off. Sadly, the suspects remain at large, though the police have a description of the two men.

Ryan was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, but is expected to recover. He managed to save one of the pups — Miss Asia — from the dognappers. When first responders arrived on scene, he was collapsed on the ground but holding Miss Asia tightly in his arms to protect her. She was later reunited with one of Gaga’s bodyguard, who picked up the pup at LAPD’s Hollywood station after Ryan was hospitalized.

Gaga has been having to watch the heartbreaking situation unfold from afar, as she is in Rome, Italy shooting a movie. In an Instagram post earlier in the day on Feb. 26, she shared a series of photos of Koji and Gustav. “My beloved dogs Koji and Gustav were taken in Hollywood two nights ago. My heart is sick and I am praying my family will be whole again with an act of kindness,” she began in the caption. 

“I will pay $500,000 for their safe return. Email KojiandGustav@gmail.com to contact us. Or, if you bought or found them unknowingly, the reward is the same,” she wrote in the caption. It’s unclear if the woman who turned the dogs in to the police had unknowingly purchased the stolen pets, or if she has any connection to the suspects. Gaga added, “I continue to love you Ryan Fischer, you risked your life to fight for our family. You’re forever a hero.”

Halle Berry shared photos of herself doing an upside down pull-up from a punching bag! The tough workout left fans stunned including ‘Scandal’ star Kerry Washington, who had ‘many questions.’

Halle Berry, 55, has yet another impressive skill that she can put on her decorated Hollywood resume: upside down pull-ups. The workout enthusiast shared photos of herself rocking a latex bodysuit while doing the difficult workout move in a #FitnessFriday post on Feb. 26. But Halle wasn’t using an ordinary pull-up bar: instead, she looped her legs through the top of a punching bag!

The move left fans in awe, including Halle’s celebrity friends. “OK this is just beyond impressive. How did you get your feet up there?! How do you get down? I have so many questions,” Kerry Washington commented with a string of laughing emojis. Halle offered to share her workout secrets; she responded, “i’ll show you my sweet friend any day you want [heart emoji].”

Scandal star Kerry Washington marveled at Halle Berry’s workout move above! [Instagram]The Grammy-winning actress wrote the perfect pun in the caption, which she addressed to her personal trainer Peter Lee Thomas: “@peterleethomas and I didn’t want to leave you hangin’ on #FitnessFriday so head to @respin to #respinyourfit.”

Rē•spin is Halle’s “health and wellness platform” that she and her trainer, Peter, launched in Feb. 2020. In addition to selling workout gear, fans can also check out lifestyle and health-related blog posts on the platform. It’s only natural for Halle to run her own fitness platform, seeing that she often shows off her workout moves and routines (like her favorite ones here) in weekly #FitnessFriday posts.

Halle also trains hard for her many movie roles. In 2019, she starred as an ex-assassin in John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum alongside Keanu Reeves, which required six months of grueling training that she considered “probably the hardest thing” she had ever done at the time.

Halle Berry at the film premiere for John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, CA on May 15, 2019. [Mega]Halle then took on another sporty role as an MMA fighter for the movie Bruised, which came out in Sept. 2020. For that film, Halle even received a boxing lesson from UFC fighter Valentina Shevchenko!

Halle doesn’t see all this training and working out as a chore, though. “She doesn’t feel herself when she’s not doing it, because she realizes how beneficial that is and how good it is for the hormones, how good it is for her sleep, how good it is for her,” her trainer, Peter, EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife in March of 2020, who told us how his famous client is “reversing the clock” at 55 years old.

We caught up with Peter again in Dec. 2020, who told us how to avoid holiday weight gain and broke down how intermittent fasting works. Next, we’re going to need Halle to break down how we too can do an upside down pull-up!

Britney Spears is back in full dancing queen mode, putting on amazing home performances to Selena Gomez, Shawn Mendes and more fellow pop stars’ tunes.

No more foot blisters for Britney Spears! The singer has been doing so much barefoot dancing on the marble tile foyer next to her living room that she ordered lyrical shoes — nylon dance shoes that cover the pads of the foot — so that she didn’t have to keep taping up her pained feet. They finally arrived and caused Britney to dance up a storm on Feb. 26. She did freeform stylings to Selena Gomez‘ “Love You Like A Love Song,” as well as Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello‘s “Senorita,” and shared the videos to her Instagram.

Britney pulled out one of her favorite summer clothing items for her winter dance session. She was seen in a yellow off-the-shoulder peasant crop top with white polka dots that had been a staple in her summer wardrobe, as Brit posed in numerous IG snapshots wearing it. She paired the top with her usual tiny, turned down at the waist shorts, this time with blue, purple and white stripes.

In addition to her usual spinning twirls and hair whipping, Brit slowed down during the interlude of Selena’s tune to show off some sultry moves. She choreographed her own hand and arm movements to the lyrics, and lip synched to the words at times. The “Toxic” singer tagged Selena in her caption, along with posting a red rosebud emoji.

So far Sel, 28, hasn’t commented back to Britney’s interpretive dance to her 2011 hit. But she has in the past when the 39-year-old pop superstar has mentioned the Spring Breakers actress. Britney shared Instagram videos of herself makeup free in Sept. 2020, noting in the caption, “Growing up in Hollywood can be hard !!!! It’s all about looks….and the press can be pretty mean.” She then added, “As Selena Gomez says…..the world can be a nasty place…kill them with kindness,” referring to Sel’s 2015 hit. Selena responded in the comments and called Britney a “rare beauty.” Which just so happened to be the name of the makeup line that the “Wolves” singer had just launched.

Earlier in the week fans got a look at Britney’s sons with their mom for the first time in ages. She was seen in a photo during a hike with  Sean Preston, 15, and Jayden James Federline, 14, on either side of their mom. Both of the teens are already taller than the 5’4” entertainer. From her outfit, the photo appeared to have been taken in Dec. 2020, when Britney shared an Instagram snapshot of herself while hiking to a waterfall in the Santa Monica Mountains near her Thousand Oaks home.

Britney’s sons primarily live with their 42-year-old father Kevin Federline, the former backup dancer who the singer was married to from 2004-2006. They have a 70/30 custody split, and both Kevin and Britney keep the boys out of the public eye. So it was a real treat for fans to see Britney as a mother with her two beloved boys, and how much they’ve grown up since the public last saw them!

Kylie Jenner rocked a black bikini to match her black hair in a series of sultry mirror selfies. The makeup mogul was also sporting yellow and pink-tip nails that were ready for spring.

Kylie Jenner, 23, coordinated her hair and bikini in her latest roundup of selfies. In a new Instagram post shared on Feb. 26, the makeup mogul snapped three mirror selfies while posing in a black bikini set featuring a triangle top with boomerang bottoms. The swimwear set matched Kylie’s long raven mane, which has been her latest ‘do after departing from her red hair phase from the end of 2020.

Kylie made sure we knew who was taking the photos: her iPhone case had a single sticker that read “KYLIE.” This is what she captioned her hot Instagram post as well! The bold iPhone sticker also drew attention to Kylie’s colorful acrylic nails, which had neon pink and yellow tips. Clear-coat nails with bright tips have been a hot trend as we approach spring!

Kylie has been rocking her hair long and dark once again ever since she debuted the style (with knee-length extensions at the time) during a tropical vacation with her friends and Kendall Jenner in January. The Kylie Cosmetics founder revealed the hairstyle in bikini photos as well; that time, she rocked a ribbed pastel orange bikini set.

Kylie has been giving us fashion inspo left and right! On Feb. 25, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star paid a trip to the Beverly Hills Hotel in knee-high ’70s-esque gogo boots, daisy dukes and a camel blazer. In addition to her stylish bag, Kylie also had her new puppy, Kevin, on her arm.

Kylie also turned heads with a futuristic two-piece set from the brand Tyrell, called the “Asymmetrical Gathered Tank Set” that retails for $260. And she left fans in awe on Feb. 24 after posting photos of herself in a $2,800 Versace top featuring bright pink and green colors and a fun cross pattern. Whether it’s a bikini or high-end designer piece, Kylie really can rock any outfit (even if that outfit has no pants).

Rihanna only needs five minutes to get glam, and so do you! The 33-year-old singer and entrepreneur demonstrated how to do a “five minute face” — AKA, a makeup routine that only requires five minutes of your time and a shopping trip on Fenty Beauty‘s website — in a new Instagram video shared on Feb. 26. The glam-on-the-go look is perfect for “when ya bored but in a hurry,” Rihanna explained in the caption for her makeup tutorial video, which was set to the tune of her 2010 hit “S&M.” The video came in perfect timing, since Fenty Beauty is having a hot sale on Sephora at the moment!

RiRi started off the video by applying Fenty Beauty’s $36 Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Powder Foundation that she raved as being “sumn special.” No liquid, no mess — like Rihanna said, this really is perfect if you’re “in a hurry” (imagine applying runny foundation in a car). After contouring her nose, Rihanna did the same to the hollows of her cheeks with her makeup brand’s $32 Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer.

The “Love on the Brain” singer then gave herself a smoky brown eyeshadow look before giving her eyelashes an extra boost with the $24 Full Frontal Volume, Lift & Curl Mascara. Afterwards, Rihanna gave herself rosy cheeks with the $20 Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush in the pink “Petal Poppin” shade. For her finishing touches, Rihanna brushed on the $39 Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil highlighter across her cheekbones and chin and applied a swipe of the $19 Gloss Bomb Cream Color Drip Lip Cream in the “Mauve Wive$” color on her lips.

Rihanna launched her makeup brand, Fenty Beauty, in Sept. 2017. [MEGA]Rihanna enjoys filming these quick makeup tutorials for fans! In Nov. 2020, she demonstrated how to achieve a natural makeup look (starting with Fenty Skin products as well). RiRi also makes sure to spill her skincare secrets, too: in Aug. 2020, she walked fans through her nighttime skincare routine and shared “some of the best tips” for maintaining a flawless complexion. This is yet another reason why fans love Rihanna: she’s always helping others look just as gorgeous as herself!

After Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene fought against shielding transgender Americans from discrimination and mocked a colleague’s trans daughter, Meghan McCain called her out for the lack of ‘respect.’

“Look, Marjorie Traylor Greene is like a Twitter troll come to life,” Meghan McCain said during the “Hot Topics” segment of Friday’s (Feb. 26) episode of The View. Meghan’s disdain came a day after Greene, 46, failed to block The Equality Act — a bill that would expand civil rights laws to extend protections on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity – on the House floor. She also trolled her colleague, Rep. Marie Newman, with a hateful sign, and Meghan, 36, had enough. “I hate theatrics in politics. I hate people that go to Congress and have no respect for their colleagues on the other side, and clearly don’t want to make any real change.”

“It’s just very disheartening and sad to see on just strictly a political level,” said Meghan. “What’s so sad to see is that we’re sitting in a place where people like Marjorie Taylor Greene are just doing it for the clicks. They’re not doing it for any other reason. She has ostensibly no power in Congress anymore. She’s a first-term ‘rank-and-file’ member. And the only thing can really do is these sort of theatrical clips that will get her on the first hot topics of The View Friday morning, and there’s no real change made.”

“There are real issues facing this country, especially in regards to the LGBTQ community. And conservatives have been allies — some of them have been allies in many fights across the aisle, for a long time, and it’s sad that it seems we’re in a place where it doesn’t matter what good work is done by people like [Rep. Adam Kinzinger] who came out against Marjory Taylor Greene. The only thing that matters is that we’re doing it for the clicks and Twitter trolls. … It is what it is. It’s just horrible.”

Rep. Kinzinger, a Republican from Illinois, voted for the Equality act and called out Greene for her actions against Rep. Newman. The Illinois Democrat hung the Transgender pride flag outside of her office in support of both the cause and her daughter, who is trans. Greene, in response, hung a sign that read, “There are TWO Genders; MALE & FEMALE. Trust the Science.” Rep. Kinzinger tweeted that he was “sad” and “sorry” for Rep. Greene’s behavior. “Rep. Newman’s daughter is transgender, and this video and tweet represent the hate and fame-driven politics of self-promotion at all evil costs. This garbage must end in order to #RestoreOurGOP.”

This is sad and I’m sorry this happened. Rep. Newmans daughter is transgender, and this video and tweet represents the hate and fame driven politics of self-promotion at all evil costs. This garbage must end, in order to #RestoreOurGOP https://t.co/gcPZ5Cu7Vr

It should be noted that while Kinzinger is asking to “#RestoreOurGOP,” he voted in line with former President Donald Trump’s policies about 90% of the time, per FiveThirtyEight. He also voted against Trump’s first Impeachment. However, after the U.S. Capitol riots, Kinzinger was the first Republican of the House calling for Trump’s removal via the 25th Amendment, and he joined nine other Republicans who voted in favor of Trump’s second impeachment.

McCain has bemoaned Rep. Greene’s antics in the past while also blaming the “mainstream media” for giving her a constant spotlight. “The more that the mainstream media continues to come out and say that all Republicans are crazy people and birthers and we believe in space lasers, then the more it makes traditional Republicans — and there’s still a lot of them in the country — go back into their corners,” she said during the Feb. 1 edition of The View. With that, a day after the House passed the Equality Act, The Federalist – the conservative publication c-founded by Meghan’s husband, Ben Domenech – published a post titled “5 Things You Need To Know About The Extremist ‘Equality Act’ House Democrats Just Passed.”

The post alleged that the Equality Act is “anti-science” and “antithetical to Judeo-Christian teachings” while linking to the conservative think-tank, The Witherspoon Institute, and the Women’s Liberation Front, a “leftist” organization that has embraced trans-exclusionary radical feminist policies. While Meghan claims the mainstream media is putting a spotlight on Rep. Greene, conservative media is more than happy to spotlight her policies.

‘Selling Sunset’ star Chrishell Stause and ‘DWST’ pro Keo Motsepe have reportedly called it quits after a whirlwind three-month romance.

Keo Motsepe, 31, and Chrishell Stause, 39, have split after meeting on Dancing with the Stars’ 29th season. A source told E! News that the couple officially called it quits “very recently” after dating for three months. “They may get back together but likely, at this point, they won’t,” a source told the outlet, adding, “They had a fun time together but in the end, decided it would be best if they part ways. They are still friendly and cordial. It wasn’t a messy breakup, just wasn’t the right fit or right timing.” Another source close to the Selling Sunset beauty reiterated that it was “a mutual breakup and they are still friendly.”

The pair first confirmed their romance on Dec. 2, 2020, as they left a West Hollywood gym. Chrishell wrapped her arm around Keo as he kissed her head on the walk back to their car. After the photos were released online, the All My Children alum took to Instagram to address the news. “The internet has absolutely zero chill,” she captioned a cute photo of Keo kissing her on the cheek. “So I guess you saw this already, but I’m just gonna leave this here,” she hilariously added for her 1.9 million followers.The duo then jetted off with Chrishell’s DWTS partner Gleb Savchenko, 37, and his new girlfriend Cassie Scerbo, 30, for an epic tropical vacation in Mexico. The couple were seen getting very cozy as they packed on the PDA while sitting atop a yacht in Cabo San Lucas. Chrishell, who split from her husband Justin Hartley about one year prior, appeared to be putting her past relationship dramas behind her.

Chrishell and Justin’s split was covered on season three of the Netflix luxury property slash reality show. The former soap stars spent four years dating before they officially tied the knot in October 2017, however they split in 2019. Justin filed paperwork in November of that year citing “irreconcilable differences,” and Chrishell claims she was notified of the divorce via text.
