HIT: The 2013 Golden Globes Award Show
This year’s Golden Globes can only be described as “perfection,” and here’s only some of the reasons why:
Seriously, best awards show. Ever.
MISS: Twitter reactions to Jennifer Lawrence’s acceptance speech
Twitter went a little crazy when our lovely J-Law started her speech with “What does it say? I beat Meryl!” The backlash was a bit disappointing considering I saw it coming from some prominent industry figures (and Lindsay Lohan) because you’d think they know that J-Law was simply quoting the 1996 movie, The First Wives Club. Unfortunately, she had to explain the joke to everyone who’s not on Tumblr while on Late Night with David Letterman on Tuesday night. While her on-stage joke may not have gotten the reception she was looking for, she will have the chance to try again when she hosts Saturday Night Live this weekend.
HIT: One Direction visits Ghana for charity
One Direction is currently in Ghana in support of the U.K. charity, Comic Relief. The five visited Accra, the country’s capital, to meet people who have received donations and support from the charity. While the boys are doing a very nice thing, we do hope they don’t over-generalize the living conditions in Ghana. Hopefully, their world travels have taught them to see both sides of every place so those stuck at home (a.k.a. me) can see the natural beauty of Ghana.

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Justin Bieber speeds down the highway in his chromed-out car, and Kourtney Kardashian has another baby.
MISS: Evan Rachel Wood filmed getting her nose pierce
Maybe it’s because I’m a bit squeamish when it comes to stuff like this, but I didn’t appreciate watching Evan Rachel Wood get her nose pierced. I don’t understand why everyone has to document every little thing they do (omgz, I’m eating a sammich!!). In particular, a nose piercing is something I didn’t really want to see come up on my dashboard, even if it’s a famous person.
HIT: Kourtney Kardashian has a little girl
To continue with knowing too much about people I don’t care about, Kourtney Kardashian had another baby! I know, it’s a Kardashian, but BABY! Babies are cute, adorable and simply cannot be ignored. Named Penelope Scotland Disick, I’m sure she will be just as adorable as her older brother Mason. Now I’m trying to imagine what Aunt Kim’s boyfriend, Kanye West, will be getting little Penelope. I’m thinking designer baby clothes made of pure gold.

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Anderson Cooper and Frank Ocean make some important announcements, and R. Kelly cried because of The Notebook.
HIT: Odd Future’s Frank Ocean reveals his first love was a man
The rising R&B star recently revealed that his first love was a man via Tumblr. His Odd Future mate Tyler the Creator said he was proud of Ocean on Twitter, and in reality, we all should be. Ocean works primarily in a corner of music that has often been considered homophobic. With that being said, he has tremendous amounts of courage as it’s a risky career move to reveal something that personal, but will also mean so much to loads of other people. Times are a-changing, people!
MISS: R. Kelly says “the Notebook” broke up his marriage
The R&B singer revealed in his new biography that he cried at the end of The Notebook as he realized his marriage was nowhere near as loving as Allie and Noah’s. One, I think R. Kelly is an ugly crier. I don’t know why but it’s how I imagined this moment. Two, I really hope he writes a song about this moment and calls it “Gosling + McAdams 4Ever.”

Fashion works in cycles, so it’s no small wonder why this 90s trend is making a comeback. This time, though, it’s not all about baggy fluorescent T-shirts, unless you want it to be. Now, colour palettes are on the softer side as pastels are mixed together on just about everything — T-shirts, tank tops, shorts, etc. Tie dye also works as a great Pinterest-y, DIY project with friends and is on the wallet friendly side.

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, John Mayer is creepy and hits on Jennifer Lawrence and Justin Bieber feels “disrespected” by fans.
HIT: Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are invading your magazine stand
Garfield is on Nylon Guys, British GQ, i-D and VMan, while Stone has New York Magazine and Vogue, with an extensive spread. They also look adorable together on Teen Vogue. The Teen Vogue interview is a good read as two banter with each other, Stone talks about the stupid questions she gets, and Garfield reveals his man-crush on Ryan Gosling. I may or may not rush into my local Chapters, place all the magazines together, and label that section “OTP.”
MISS: Justin Bieber is rude to fans as he waits for Selena Gomez
While JBiebs’ star shone at the legendary Apollo Theater in New York, the media blew up a scuffle he had with some fans at the airport. Apparently, Bieber was bothered by the number of fans who were asking for his autograph as he waited for Selena Gomez. “I’ve had a long day, I flew in,” said Bieber. “I don’t have to be nicer about it. You guys are in my face.” Bieber was probably having an off day and you have to admit, it must be frustrating to have no privacy. Everybody has those days once in a while!
