Britney Spears is using her star power for good. The ‘Baby One More Time‘ superstar spent time doing art therapy at Children’s Hospital L.A. on Tuesday (March 12).

Britney joined patients for a session of drawing, coloring and doing collages and also went to visit the kids who were to sick to attend the art therapy class.

The hospital tweeted about the singer’s good deed: “Art therapy w/ @britneyspears was a blast. Thanks for visiting, Britney! Blog post coming soon… ”

Shortly after the tweet and first photo of Britney were posted, the hospital returned with the promised blog post, which described the experience.

According to the post, “Britney joined three patients on their art therapy journey, which focused on the topic, “What it feels like to be away from home.”

Spears also “shared her favorite images that remind her of family. Her collage included an image of a crawfish—her favorite food. She also chose a photo showing happy children to represent her two boys and a butterfly.” According to the singer,  “Butterflies are our guardian angels.”

Following the art therapy session, Brit “made her way to The Heart Institute, the Medical/Surgical unit and the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases and help boost spirits of several children who were too ill to attend art therapy.”

Emma Watson looks great in denim-on-denim on the cover of ELLE magazine April 2014 issue.

The 23-years-old actress opened up about growing up in the spotlight and her new movie Noah and fame and she made a pretty interesting and equally sad confession.

Emma, who rose to stardom as Hermione in the Harry Potter franchise when she was just a kid, revealed that she is “jealous” of actresses who got to live their childhood and teenage years out of the spotlight.

Check out what she had to say!

On keeping her personal life and work like separate: “I remember reading this thing that Elizabeth Taylor wrote. She had her first kiss in character. On a movie set. It really struck me. I don’t know how or why, but I had this sense that if I wasn’t really careful, that could be me: that my first kiss could be in somebody else’s clothes. And my experiences could all belong to someone else.”

On fellow actresses who began their careers as adults: “There are all these actresses who have emerged in the last year or two, and they get to emerge as this complete human being. And I’m so jealous!”

On her new movie Noah: “It’s Shakespearean, what happens to this family when they’re put in this confined space for 40 days and 40 nights. It’s the end of the world—how these different human beings are dealing with the impact of that. Are humans good? Are we bad? All of these themes are epic.”

Director Darren Arofnosky on Emma: “We started off with one of Emma’s hardest scenes. We shot in Iceland on a beach with an extremely difficult weather situation.The force of the wind—we could barely hear the actors. The sun kept coming in and out. We had to wait for the right light, then, Go, go, go! Then, Wait, wait, wait! She was able to block out all those ridiculous external forces and just focus on the emotion at hand.”

Jennifer Lopez premiered her highly-anticipated music video for the hit single “I Luh Ya Papi” from her upcoming studio album.

The single is from J.Lo’s upcoming tenth album so the Latin diva decided to go for a special music video in celebration of the milestone.

In the sexy video, the 44-years-old superstar “objectifies men” on purpose. The clip begins with J.Lo and two of her female friends rejecting a label rep’s music video ideas such as filming at a water park (Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj did that), at a carnival, or at a zoo.

Instead, the ladies decide to do a music video male singers often do – perform in luxurious locations, with fit men wearing nothing but boxers surrounding her.

“#ILuhYaPapi featuring @FrenchMontana is LIVE on @VEVO NOW!”, Lopez tweeted on Thursday (March 13th).

The video also shows Jennifer rocking a green jumpsuit similar to the famous Versace dress that she wore to the Grammys, plus other throwback looks to remind us all that she is still the #SameGirl.

Miley Cyrus is sticking up for her fans! The singer appreciates that they are paying big bucks to see her in concert and she wants them to have the best experience, including to be allowed to take photos of her.

Miley did not have it when she saw a fan get in trouble after taking her photo during her Bangerz concert in Dallas on Wednesday (March 12).

The ‘Wrecking Ball‘ superstar stopped the concert and told the audience: “You can’t take a picture at a concert? What the f*ck is that? F*ck.”

Someone just got in trouble for taking a picture of the f*cking concert. That’s why you guys paid $1,000 a f*cking ticket so you can take a f*cking picture of me. F*ck,” she added.

Although it’s unclear what exactly went down, it seems that security did not allow one concert-goer to snap a photo of Cyrus during the show.

Miley’s rant was filmed by fans and posted on Instagram, with a large numbers of followers congratulating the singer for defending the fan.

Kristen Bell looked very pretty in pink at the premiere of the ‘Veronica Mars‘ movie held at TLC Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles on Wednesday (March 12).

The 33-years-old actress wore a strapless J. Mendel gown styles with Piaget statement earrings and nude sandals.

A sleek side-parted ponytail and natural makeup completed her look.

This is a pretty and delicate look and she looks beautiful, but this look is missing something. Maybe some pop of color via either the makeup or some eye-grabbing jewelry.

Also, I like the back of the dress better than the front.

A lot of people were very excited for this premiere so, share your thoughts: did Kristen Bell deliver on the red carpet?

Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation Under Fire After ‘Wasting’ $1.5 Million

Lady Gaga, 2014 Academy Awards

Lady

Back in February 2012 Lady Gaga proudly announced the launch of her Born This Way Foundation. The charity’s goal was and still is (I think) to help and offer support to Little Monsters who have suffered from bullying, and overall to make them feel better about themselves and embrace who they are. It all sounds wonderful and all, but according to a new report, only a small part of the money is used for that noble goal. A very small part.

Showbiz411 has revealed that Gaga’s foundation has spent A LOT of money of lawyers, advertising and consultants. How much exactly? $1.5 million. As for actual charity? $348K.

According to the federal tax report for the Born This Way Foundation, whose president is Cynthia Germanotta, Gaga’s mom,  only $348,000 were spent on their outreach bus tour, while a whooping $1.5 million were wasted on legal fees, publicity and a website in 2012.

Here’s the list of the charity’s expenditures:

*$300,000 on “Strategic Consulting (web, digital),”

*$62,836 on “Stage Productions (Harvard, LA, UN),”

*$50,000 on “Social Media,” 

*almost $50,000 on “Event Coordination.”

And there’s more: $808,661 on “other”; $406,552 on “Legal”; $150,000 on “Philanthropic Consulting”; $60,000 on “research”; 58,768 on “Publicity fees”; $78,000 on “travel”. They also spent $72,000 on salaries.

For “grants to organizations or individuals” they allocated $5,000.

The foundation’s claimed net assets? $2.1 million. Donations came to $2.6 million, up from $1.4 million in 2011. However, there is no detailed listing of contributors or donations.

Cynthia Germanotta (the singer’s mom) and Marc Brackett (Director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence) have written an essay on Huffington Post to explain the foundation’s mission and I guess it’s also a response to the tax report reveal that has caused so much controversy. You can read the whole essay here.

Scarlett Johansson stole the spotlight at the ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘ press conference held at the Bevelry Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on Wednesday (March 12).

Scarlett proudly showed off her engagement ring as she attended the conference as answered questions. This is the first time the media and fans got such a good and clear look at Johansson’s rock. It’s different than other engagement rings we’ve seen celebs wearing. And it’s definitely big, sparkly and beautiful. Romain did a good job.

The 29-years-old pregnant actress was joined by ‘The Winter Soldier’ co-stars Sebastian Stan, Chris Evans and Samuel L. Jackson. See photos below!

While she wouldn’t exactly confirm her pregnancy, Scarlett did answer a question about ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron‘ and made it clear that filming is on schedule.

Everything for “Avengers 2” — we’re full steam ahead. We start shooting in three weeks and I’m stunt training and we’re good to go. You know, I think it’s something that is [laughing] hard to talk about, exactly. You know, trying to skirt around your question exactly [laughs] — and, you know, doing a poor job of it. But, you know, like I said, everything is exactly on schedule […] [Laughs] Everything is going just fine. The Black Widow always wins and will continue to.”

Macklemore Wrote A Little Song Telling Men To Stop Peeing On The Toilet Seat

Macklemore

Macklemore is spreading a new message: ‘Men all over the world, lift the toilet seat before you pee, then clean up your mess!’

The Grammy winner is offering some precious advice to men everywhere, and helping their girlfriends/wives at the same time, via a little song he wrote. The rapper is telling guys to put down the toilet seat after they pee and leave the bathroom clean.

He even did a little video (which is a little gross) and posted it on his Instagram. Since there’s a chance that what you see in the video is Macklemore’s pee, go watch it at your own risk on his Instagram.

The video came with the following message: “ITS TIME THAT US MEN STARTED RESPECTING TO THE BASIN THAT OUR QUEENS SIT ON! LETS RAISE THE NEXT GENERATION TO HAVE BETTER AIM SO WOMEN DONT HAVE TO PEE & POOP ON OUR PEE!…and IM NOT TRYING TO POOP ON YOUR PEE EITHER! BASICALLY, TO ALL THE FRAT GUYS AND SHITTY DADS, QUIT FUCKING UP THE DEUCE SESH FOR THE REST OF US! BUMP THIS CUT IN ALL AIRPORT BATHROOMS AND FOOTBALL GAMES! FUCK A DRUNK DAD PISSING ON THE GROUND, AND A FRAT BRO TOO HAMMERED TO HANDLE HIS DANGLER! MAN UP AND LEARN DONG CONTROL!…IM OUT!!!”

Yes, he actually used all caps lock for the message. Guy wants to get this across. Women everywhere are grateful.
