Chris Pine hit the red carpet for the John Varvatos Stuart House benefit in La on Sunday. The Into the Woods star looked as hot as ever while posing for photos on the red carpet with John Varvatos himself, as well as Ziggy Marley and his family - Chris had an especially sweet interaction with the reggae singer's son Gideon when he leaned down to let him adorably whisper something in his ear. In addition to walking the red carpet, Chris also served as honorary chair of the event; the annual fundraiser is in its 12th year and benefits the Stuart House, a program of the Rape Treatment Center at UCLA's Medical Center.

26 April 2015 7:42 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

The White House Correspondents' Dinner is the only event where you'll see the stars from "The Walking Dead," "Game of Thrones" mingling with YouTube sensations, politicians, supermodels and yes, even the President of the United States. It's one of the most random events of the year -- and last night's soiree was no different. The stars turned out in their most killer couture for the so-called "nerd prom," with Chrissy Teigen showing some serious leg and some cleavage in a stunning Zuhair Murad gown. Seriously, how gorgeous does John Legend's wife look? Naya Rivera used the occasion to show off her growing baby bump, glowing in a white Tadashi Shoji dress that accentuated her big belly. The "Glee" star and husband Ryan Dorsey are currently expecting their first child together. Other red carpet stunners included "Orange Is the New Black" star Laverne Cox and Mrs. Channing Tatum herself, Jenna Dewan-Tatum. »

Watch Terry Crews Punch Out Mike Tyson on 'Lip Sync Battle'

24 April 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

On paper, a battle between former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson and muscle factory/actor Terry Crews would be a title bout on the level of Mayweather vs. Pacquiao. However, instead of stepping into the ring, the two behemoths had a showdown Thursday night in a much-friendlier arena: Lip Sync Battle. In the opening round, Iron Mike busted out with the Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction," while the Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor countered with Run-d.M.C.'s "Sucker MCs."

While Tyson was likely the crowd favorite going in – the fleet-footed boxer does an admirable impersonation »

21 April 2015 12:16 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Even First Ladies watch reality TV! At least, Michelle Obama does. Chrissy Teigen appeared on Watch What Happens Live with LL Cool J Monday to talk about Lip Sync Battle, but Bravo host Andy Cohen had to bring up a secret that Teigen had previously dished to him: President Barack Obama's wife is a Real Housewives fan!

There Isn’t Nearly Enough Blue Ivy in Jay Z’s ‘Glory’ Video

16 April 2015 9:43 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

With Jay Z's Tidal a few weeks old — and already under heavy fire from his music peers — it's about time the man running the show released some exclusive content of his own. Today he's put out the video for "Glory" — no, not the Common and John Legend song from Selma, but the song he released in 2012, just after the birth of his daughter, Blue Ivy. But, sadly, although her adorable little baby coos are heard on the track, she's nowhere to be seen in the video (which features footage from the rehearsals for his 2012 Carnegie Hall shows). We do, however, see Jay Z be a total dad and show off what looks like baby pics of Blue on his phone to Alica Keys and Nas. What a family man! »

After all, Teigen is absolutely gorgeous, she has the cutest relationship with hubby John Legend, she can rock a bikini like nobody's business and she's a badass chef in her free time. But guess what? She's also human, and not afraid to flaunt what many people may label a "flaw" for the entire world to see. And we just love her for it. Chrissy has never been one to shy away from keeping it 100, but the beautiful star shared a photo of her bruised up legs while she sat cross-legged with a beverage and then, maybe without even realizing, created a positive post for all women by »
