Jessica Alba Wears a White Bikini and a Huge Smile on Spring Break

30 March 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Jessica Alba and her husband, Cash Warren, took their daughters on a Spring break getaway to the Caribbean last week. Jessica revealed the fun trip by posting a sweet photo of Honor and Haven swimming in a pool with a gorgeous view and now we have pictures of the whole crew lounging poolside. Jessica wore a tiny white striped bikini and accessorized with a sun hat while Cash covered up in a gray t-shirt. He later went shirtless for a dip in the ocean, where they met up with Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, who were also vacationing on the island. The Alba-Warren family is all about fun vacations, having traveled to Mexico in January, when Jessica hit the beach in a printed two-piece. Jessica has plenty of hot bikini moments over the years, and she's one of the many stars who have already slipped into bikinis in 2015. »

Martin Garrix Premieres New Avicii And Ed Sheeran Collaborations At Ultra Music Festival, Brings Usher On Stage

29 March 2015 9:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Without a doubt, one of the best sets at Ultra Music Festival this weekend came to us courtesy of Martin Garrix. Aside from bringing out Usher on stage with him for their new song “Don’t Look Down” (which you can watch in the video below), the young Edm superstar premiered some huge new music, including collaborations with Avicii and Ed Sheeran.

First up is the Avicii song, which is titled “Waiting For Love” and can be heard in the embed above. Radio friendly and a bit more scaled back than Martin’s typical main stage bangers, the track is covered in Tim’s signature sound, playing like something you’d find on True. Rumors point to John Legend on vocals, but so far, that’s unconfirmed.

When we asked Martin if the song would be appearing on his album, he told us that he wasn’t sure yet, as »

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend escaped to St. Barts this week, and while they spent plenty of time showing sweet beach Pda, they also got playful with friends. Jessica Alba and Cash Warren were on the island vacationing with their family as well, and both groups met up in the water, where they splashed around and snapped pictures. Chrissy and John even played with Jessica and Cash's kids, Honor and Haven. Chrissy stayed covered up in a sarong and a towel, which Cash helped her with as she got out of the sea, while Jessica showed off her impressive bikini body in a white striped bikini. The star-studded Spring break got more exciting since Rachel Zoe and her family arrived on the island this week as well.

Academy: Hire Judd Apatow to Produce 2016 Oscars

26 March 2015 4:02 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This year's meeting on Tuesday night was no exception. At the "Mad Men" final premiere Wednesday night, several board members confirmed that they did discuss the show but not the number of Best Picture nominees--that will be decided this summer when the rules committee has weighed in. While Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are claiming that it is their decision, the news that they are not returning was confirmed today.  It's no surprise. Their first Oscars, hosted by Seth MacFarlane, boasted great music and great ratings--even if the host was a disappointment. Their second Oscars also boasted great music and a superb host, Ellen DeGeneres, along with great ratings. So the musical duo were asked to produce for a third time, which was not the charm. They allowed rookie host Neil Patrick Harris too much leeway with new writers and the show fell flat in all departments. (Personally, I loved »

Kerry Washington gave a speech at the GLAAD Media Awards Saturday night that would have made Olivia Pope proud.

The Scandal actress received the Vanguard Award for being an ally to the Lgbt community. She used her acceptance speech to stress the importance of representation for anyone considered an "other" by society, including the Lgbt community, women, people of color, people with disabilities, poor people, and other marginalized groups.

"We have been pitted against each other and made to feel there are limited seats at the table for those of us who fall into the category of 'other,'" she said.

She said as a black woman, the characters she plays are often radical just by existing.
