Maypole dancers surround the maypole with coloured ribbons on May Day, which is the first day of the month.
While some of you might be celebrating the beginning of May dancing to N’Sync’s “It’s Gonne Be Me” and if you don’t know why perhaps this will give you some sort of clue. Others around the world will be dancing to traditional folk music in celebration of May Day, a traditional European spring festival. So in honour of this lovely spring holiday, I’ll be giving you tips on rocking the floral trend that you can take with you well into the summer. And yeah I know what you’re thinking, florals for spring? How groundbreaking! But yes florals are actually a trend for 2013 for both women and men, so check it out!
Lana Del Rey, the Queen of the floral crown.
So if you missed out on Coachella, don’t fret because May Day is the perfect (and probably the most legitimate) reason for anyone to be wearing a floral crown. Floral crowns were spotted on the runways and magazine but hit the mainstream thanks to sultry singer Lana Del Rey. They became quite the phenomenon at Coachella and rightly overtook the Native American headdress (this should have never been a trend in the first place) as the hair accessory of choice for concertgoers. Don’t be surprised to see floral crowns at various music festivals this summer.
These poor girls were victims of a Jimmy Kimmel prank at this year’s Coachella.

1. Showering for dummies
“Have you been imagining cool things to say for a long time?” Embarrassingly true. But I think they forgot reciting the entire score of Rent…
I legitimately cried from laughter when I saw this. If I walked into my room to see my cat making this face, I’d probably snap a photo too. The question is, what are they looking at on the computer? Hmm..
3. Is this guy single?
Apparently a Ryan Gosling-Steve Carell hybrid exists. This is the best day ever.
4. Beyonce has a message for Romney…
Beyonce posted this punny picture on her tumblr a few days ago. We got the message Bey, you’re Team Obama.
5. Harry Potter and Hermione reunion
I dressed up as Hermione for four consecutive years of my life. Not once did this happen. If Emma Watson ever recognized my Halloween costume, I would probably combust out of pure joy.
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, ScarJo gets a star on the Walk of Fame and Courtney Stodden releases a new single (ick).
HIT: The Wanted’s “Chasing the Sun” will be the title track in Ice Age 4
While we’re not diehards for Ice Age 4: Continental Drift, we do love The Wanted here at andPOP. The band’s single “Chasing the Sun” will be the title track for the new movie and the news started trending on Twitter on Thursday afternoon.
MISS: Glee’s Amber Riley collapses on Red Carpet
Heather Morris, Jenna Ushkowitz and Amber Riley were on the red carpet for a screening of their Fox show Glee, and while giving interviews Riley collapsed. She wrote on Twitter: “Hey guys, I’m okay I got a little dizzy from all the photog flashes! You’d think I’s be used to it by now, still a red carpet amateur I guess. Gonna get checked out but I feel fine. Thank you for all the concern and well wishes,” She also wrote: “I’d also like to thank the photographers for being do professional and not taking photos of me on the ground. I truly truly appreciate it. Could have been super embarrassing.” We’re glad she’s okay!
HIT: Scarlett Johansson gets a star on the Walk of Fame
Johansson may only be 27 years old, but there’s no doubt she’s deserving of such an honor as a star on the Walk of Fame. The Avengers star has won a Tony award, received countless nominations for her film work and has even been Woody Allen’s muse. From indie flicks, the stage and even to big budget summer spectacles, Johansson can do it all.

The day has come when you can actually look like Drake, if you really want to. Makeup artist Promise Tamang Phan has tackled everyone from Angelina Jolie to Scarlett Johansson, but Drake is one of her most drastic transformation yet. She’s unrecognizable!
There’s only 12 simple steps to becoming Drake, though the swagger is something you’re born with. So if you really feel like testing out a daring look this Friday night, why not Drake it up?
Watch the clip below:
While everyone and their dog are putting out holiday albums, Scarlett Johansson is only sparing us a song.
The actress, who put out an album of Tom Waits covers back in 2008, joins Dean Martin in singing “I’ll Be Home For Christmas”. The classic song is on Dean’s upcoming album “My Kind of Christmas”.
Boom Bap Beatnik posted the song on their site. It’s a pretty dashing song and Scarlett sounds like she’s straight from the 1950s. If the two, who recorded the song back in September, reunite for a music video, I know at least 100 guys who’d love to see Scarlett frolic around by the fireplace, drinking hot chocolate.
Christopher Chaney is the accused celebrity hacker who says he was “addicted” to hacking celebrities email accounts and cell phones.
So why did he do it? ”It started as curiosity and it turned to just being addictive … seeing the behind-the-scenes of what’s going on with the people you see on the big screen.”
Some of the celebs hacked include Mila Kuni and Scarlett Johansson. It is also believed Chaney is responsible for leaking personal naked pictures of celebrities.
The man who hacked Mila Kunis, Christina Aguilera and Scarlett Johnansson has been charged with identity theft and wiretapping.
35 year old Christopher Chaney has been charged in Jacksonville, Florida. TMZ reports Chaney would use public information to access email accounts of his alleged victims, and then access computers and cell phones under the control of his victims.
As we reported earlier, some of the items stolen included naked photos.
The FBI is closing in on the cell phone hackers that leaked nude photos of Scarlett Johansson. The pics were eventually distributed to several websites, and Scarlett has threatened legal action against the sites hosting the illegal pictures.
Sources say the FBI is closing in on the group, and has identified as least one of the hackers.
TMZ says other celebrity phones have been hacked, including Vanessa Hudgens, Jessica Alba, Lindsey Vonn, Ali Larter and Emma Caulfield.
Scarlett Johansson’s lawyer is threatening some celebrity websites that are showing the hacked naked pics of Scarlett. TMZ says attorney Marty Singer has issued threatening letters to sites like The Dirty.com.
Singer claims, “The highly personal and private photographs at issue capture our client self-posing in her own home in a state of undress and/or topless.”
Singer continues, “If you fail to comply, you will be acting at your own peril. Please govern yourselves accordingly.”
As we reported earlier, the FBI has launched an investigation into the hacking.
TMZ reports that dozens of celebrities have been hacked, with a variety of personal information being revealed.
Just today nude photos of Scarlett Johansson were exposed, along with Mila Kunis being hacked, exposing personal pictures of Justin Timberlake.
In a new Public Service Announcement posted by Planned Parenthood on YouTube, the stunning Scarlett Johansson urges viewers to join the petition in support of funding for the organization, after the United States House of Representatives passed a bill to eliminate $300 million in federal funding for women’s health care centers.
“The House passed a bill to eliminate our country’s family planning program and to stop Planned Parenthood health centers from receiving any federal money to provide life-saving preventative care,” the 26-year-old actress says. “That means no money for cervical cancer screenings and breast exams. No money for testing and treatment of STDs, not even testing for HIV. No money for birth control.”
Uploaded to YouTube on Thursday, April 7, the website has already removed the petition and replaced it with thank-you to concerned supporters.
“Late Friday night, Congress reached an agreement on the federal budget, and it did not include cuts to Planned Parenthood funding. Together, we have made our voices heard and Congress listened. Now the real fight begins.”
The website goes on to urge supporters to the donate to the cause, citing that the “extremists behind the efforts to bar Planned Parenthood health centers from federal funding… lost that fight — but they were able to use the budget fight to force new burdens on women seeking abortion services in Washington, DC. This victory for their anti-women’s health agenda, along with the fact that they came dangerously close to succeeding in their assault on Planned Parenthood, has surely emboldened them for future attacks.”
The video, which was shared by such websites as UsMagazine online and the New York Daily News, no doubt picked up circulation due to Johansson’s star power. The one day response time to the petition just goes to show the power of celebrity influence.
Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn’s reps can deny it all they like, but the duo are clearly romantically involved. Celebrity-gossip. net reports that the couple took a last minute trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico yesterday where they had a quick dinner because Johansson had to get back to L.A. in the morning to continue filming “We Bought a Zoo” with Matt Damon.
Earlier in the week, the twosome was seen lunching at the popular Los Angeles Cuban restaurant, Versailles, where the actor and actress seemed a little closer than friends as Johansson had her leg conspicuously draped over Penn.
After a two year marriage with Ryan Reynolds that ended in December, it’s no surprise that Johansson, one of the most sought after and popular young actresses, would be courted once again. Penn is somewhat of an interesting counterpart as he is about 25 years her senior. However, both are powerhouse actors with busy schedules. Maybe this relationship will work out a la Tom Cruise and Katy Holmes?
E Online is reporting that hollywood super-couple Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson are officially separating.
The amazingly good-looking couple tied the knot back in September of 08, officially breaking the “we’d have the best looking kids ever” record, currently held by my parents.
The news of their separation comes shortly after Reynolds was named People’s Sexiest Man Alive and Johansson GQ’s Babe of the Year.
Reynolds’ abs had the following to say: “We’ll be fine.”
It’s been a busy couple of years for Ryan Reynolds, who just several years ago was one of two guys who worked with a girl at a pizza place. Today, according to MTV News, People Magazine has named the Canadian actor as 2010′s sexiest man alive.
Reynolds has taken on much meatier roles in the past couple years compared to those of his sitcom days or when he worked at “Shenanigans” with Justin Long. He played a single father alongside Abigail Breslin in Definitely Maybe and garnered the starring role in the latest instalment of the X-Men franchise. Both proved to be magnificent opportunities to take off his shirt, and his next film, The Green Lantern, which also stars gossip girl Blake Lively, should be no different. Especially after receiving the coveted “Sexiest Man Alive” title.
The announcement comes just weeks after Scarlett Johansson, Reynolds’ wife, was named GQ Magazine’s ‘Babe of the Year’. More tough times for the couple ahead.
According to MTV News, Bullock celebrated her MTV Generation Award with a kiss from Scarlett Johansson.
Accompanying Johansson and Bullock on stage was Betty White and Bradley Cooper. And of course, this kiss got Bullock a standing ovation from the rowdy crowd.
“Sandy, I know I’m not alone in saying I hope you know how loved you are,” Cooper said. “Both for your incredible talent and for being such a humble and effervescent woman.”
And Bullock deserved nothing less than to be honoured. Just this year, she has already received a Golden Globe as well as a pair of giant hits, including “The Proposal” and “Blind Side.”
“You are grace defined and I adore you madly,” White said, who got to know Bullock during the filming of “The Proposal.”
“Our sex scenes were cut from theatrical release,” White lamented. “But don’t worry, everyone can see them on the unrated DVD.”
Despite all of the love and chatter, Johansson preferred to just stay quiet. Maybe she was still holding a grudge over Bullock’s full-frontal scene in “The Proposal,” shared with Ryan Reynolds – Johansson’s husband.
And to top it all off, Bullock became the first-ever female recipient of the honour. She joins the likes of Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller and Mike Myers, just to name a few.
During her speech, Bullock said “no matter what you might have seen or heard or read lately, I love what I do. And I’m not going anywhere.”
It has been reported that “The Wrestler” star and Oscar nominee Mickey Rourke has signed on to play a super-villain in the upcoming comic book flick “Iron Man 2,” according to DeadlineHollywood Daily.com.
Scarlett Johansson has also been cast in the movie, according to reports which claim that Johansson has replaced Emily Blunt, who was supposed to play the Black Widow, according to Deadline Hollywood.
Scarlett Johansson has recorded another cover, this time for the soundtrack to her latest movie, “He’s Just Not That Into You.”
The album, which hits stores Feb. 3, features her piano-accompanied rendition of Jeff Buckley’s “Last Goodbye.”
The original version appeared on 1994′s “Grace,” the only complete studio album released by Buckley before he drowned in 1997 at the age of 30.
Other artists featured on the soundtrack are My Morning Jacket, R.E.M., Talking Heads, Wilco, the Replacements and the Cure.
The movie, based on a self-help book that itself was based on an episode of “Sex & The City,” hits theatres Feb. 6.
Besides Johansson, the romantic comedy stars Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Ginnifer Goodwin, Bradley Cooper and others.
Best known as an actress, Johansson released “Anywhere I Lay My Head,” an album consisting mostly of Tom Waits covers, last year.
Scarlett Johansson is already planning a followup to “Anywhere I Lay My Head,” her debut album that was released in the spring.
The actress told MTV News that a sophomore album would feature original material, unlike her previous LP, which contained ten Tom Waits covers and an original composition.
“I don’t think I’d do covers, so it’d be a project that I have to dedicate myself to,” she said. “I feel like that’s something for the future.”
If she had to cover someone else, she said, she would probably choose for Leonard Cohen, who she previously named as someone she’d like to work with.
A new album won’t be released anytime soon, though. Johansson said she’ll have to wait to work on it due to her busy schedule, which includes her recent marriage to fellow actor Ryan Reynolds and two upcoming movie releases: the action-drama “The Spirit” and the comedy “He’s Just Not That Into You.”
She will also begin shooting her next big-screen project, “Amazon,” next year.
Scarlett Johansson is set to host the upcoming Nobel Peace Prize Concert, which will include performances by Feist and Diana Ross.
Also slated to play the Dec. 11 event in Oslo is an array of international talent, including Dierks Bentley, Julieta Venegas, Seun Kuti, Marit Larsen, Nick Davies and The Norwegian Radio Orchestra.
Additional acts will be announced in the coming few weeks.
The 15th annual show will take place the day after former Finnish president Martti Ahtisaari receives the Nobel Peace Prize for his diplomatic and peacemaking work over more than three decades.
Johansson release a statement saying she was “truly honoured” to be hosting the tribute to Ahtisaari.
“His tireless efforts to promote peace on a global scale are an inspiration to us all,” she said.
The actress herself received high praises from Geir Lundestad, secretary of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, who called her “politically engaged and conscious” in an interview with the VG newspaper.
Congrats to the new Hollywood couple!
Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson have officially tied the knot on Saturday in Vancouver, Canada, after having announced their engagement four months ago.
The two Hollywood actors who have been dating since February 2007, according to Us Magazine, wed at a remote wilderness resort just outside the city.
Reynolds, 31 and a native of Vancouver, is most notably known for his roles in films such as “Van Wilder,” “Blade Trinity,” “The Amityville Horror,” and will be seen in upcoming movies such as “Fireflies in the Garden,” “Adventureland,” and “X-Men:Origins.”
Johansson, 23, is well known for her performances in “Lost in Translation,” “Girl with a Pearl Earing,” and will be seen in her upcoming films, “The Spirit” and “He’s Just Not That into You.”
Few details are available, but guests reportedly included Scarlett’s mother, Melanie Sloan, and her brother Adrian Johansson.
