In his new book, "Life Code," Dr. Phil McGraw reveals his actionable rules for succeeding in the real world. It's not about sitting around and waiting for your patience to be rewarded, Dr. Phil says. Rather, to be successful in today's climate, you have to go after what you want, actively protect yourself against the toxic people who want to bring you down and, as he puts it, become the star in your own life.
Becoming the star in your own life is about putting yourself first and going after what you want and need in life, Dr. Phil says in this clip from "Oprah's Lifeclass." But is being the "star" really an appropriate aspiration or is it just another excuse to be selfish?
As Oprah states, "People think 'star' means you have to be vain or wealthy or [famous]." That's not what it means to be the star in your own life, »

Matt Damon’s “toilet strike” for water.org is claiming more and more celebrities in an Oprah-like sweep: Now Bono won’t use the bathroom! And Olivia Wilde! And British mogul Richard Branson! Like Damon, the trio has pledged “not to go to the bathroom until everyone in the whole world has access to clean water and sanitation.” Damon kickstarted the strike in February; Jessica Biel, Jason Bateman, and Josh Gad joined him in March. The movement protests the plight of the 780 million people who lack access to safe drinking water and the 2.5 billion people who go without safe water and sanitation facilities. »

Cat Power is fighting the power.
The 41-year-old singer took to Instagram on Monday night to post a photo of the Statue of Liberty with an accompanying rant against America.
Born Charlyn Marie Marshall, Cat Power wrote that she will be leaving America, only to come back "when those powers that be, take responsibility in hearing the majority voice of the peoples of the United American States and for all whom call it home."
She goes on to target the "false currency" which the country has used "to rape this earth with its lies," before outlining her list of demands, including "a tripartisan" and "a Native American vote." Cat Power ends the rant by tagging a myriad of people and organizations, including Oprah, Vice, Diplo, Beyonce, Rolling Stone, and James Franco.
Take a look at Cat Power's full Instagram post below.

New York, May 17: O.J. Simpson has recently revealed that he had been drinking for the whole day on Sept. 13, 2007, before he robbed two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel.
But sources close to the case think that it might be that watching "The Oprah Winfrey Show" that afternoon made Simpson impulsive, the New York Post reported.
The family of Ronald Goldman, who was murdered along with Simpson's ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, were on "Oprah" to discuss the controversial book "If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer," just before Simpson entered the Palace Station Hotel to rob the dealers.
The book is a repackaged version of a 'fictitious' book Simpson had written titled simply, "If I Did It," based on. »

It’s always been a great irony of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame that induction ceremonies might be the least rock ‘n’ roll thing ever. But Public Enemy, Rush, Heart, Donna Summer, Quincy Jones, Lou Adler, Albert King, and Randy Newman took their spots in the canon last night — the actual ceremony happened at L.A.’s Nokia Theater in April, but HBO didn’t air it until a month later — it was clear that many of them must be big fans of irony.
Randy Newman kicked things off with his anthem “I Love L.A.,” which got »

Which American actress is richer than Oprah? According to a new list, "Seinfeld" star Julia Louis-Dreyfus is worth a whopping $3 billion, beating Oprah by $300 million and becoming the fourth richest celebrity (singers, rappers, actors, models). Louis-Dreyfus didn't earn all that money from her work on "Seinfeld." In fact, most of it comes from her family. But that's not to say that "Seinfeld" didn't make her richer. Both Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David made the list, each being worth $800 million. What's interesting is that Keanu Reeves is worth $350 million, which is more than Will Smith ($200 million) and Bruce Springsteen ($200 million). But that's nothing comparing to the person who took first place, George Lucas, who's worth $7.3 billion, mostly thanks to the sale of "Star Wars" to Disney. Check out the top 50 list below: 1. George Lucas: $7.3 Billion 2. Dina Merrill: $5 Billion 3. Steven Spielberg: $3 Billion 4. Julia Louis-Dreyfus: $3 Billion 5. Oprah Winfrey: »
Dr. Maya Angelou's mother, Vivian Baxter, had a reputation for being a fierce, independent and energetic woman. As a mother, she wasn't much different, according to her daughter. But Vivian's strength and passion seemed to make her a better parent for a young adult rather than a small child, Dr. Angelou says.
In this clip from Dr. Angelou's appearance on "Super Soul Sunday," the literary icon and renowned poet tells Oprah about how she was parented by her mother -- something she also explores in her latest book, "Mom & Me & Mom." Oprah says to Dr. Angelou, "You say in the book -- and I've heard you say it before -- that she was not a good mother of young children."
"She was terrible," Dr. Angelou says simply. As an example of how her young mother wasn't well-equipped to parent a small child, Dr. Angelou tells a story about when she was just a toddler. »

The 47-year-old looked simply stunning in a white hot gown in Cannes. Doesn’t she look amazing?
Supermodel Cindy Crawford did not look a day over 20 in her breathtaking white gown when she walked the red carpet at The Great Gatsby premiere during the Cannes Film Festival. The beaded gold neckline gave her just the right amount of cleavage and highlighted her fantastic figure. To pull it all together, she wore a simple gold, strappy heel and added gorgeous teardrop earrings, letting her perfect blowout frame her face. With just a simple, (but dazzling!), pair of earrings, Cindy bared her toned arms, proving she has an amazing body!
Cindy Crawford Cannes Dress:
The dress was a classic Roberto Cavalli and she looked so sexy for a mother of two; Presley, 13, and Kaia, 11. The gathered waist allowed the supermodel mom to flaunt her svelte frame while the halter neckline oozed glamour. »

Martha Stewart made a grievous error during her appearance on "The Tonight Show." See if you can catch it.
“Before the show, I saw Dave in his--" she said before quickly realizing what she'd done wrong. "Did I say Dave?”
Thankfully, Wanda Sykes was on hand to diffuse any tension, though Leno was rolling with it amiably.
“Don’t feel bad, she called me Oprah," Sykes joked, while Martha vehemently denied it.
Uproxx says that Stewart has seemed a little out of herself lately, or maybe she's just evolving. She's been open about creating an online dating account and has been talking about sex a lot more lately.
Or maybe she's just exhausted. Stewart just released her 79th book, "Living the Good Long Life," and has not one, but »

Each year there are a handful of lists released of which stars have made the most money, which actor is overpaid/underpaid, etc. and usually the lists are pretty interesting. CelebrityNetWorth.com keeps track of how much celebrities are worth and the Huffington Post has compiled a list of actors, musicians, directors and media types whose massive amount of wealth is just shocking. While some of the names on the list aren't surprising at all (J.K. Rowling, Oprah, U2's Bono), »

Michael Jackson landed Sam Tsui on Oprah, but now Tsui must rely on someone else's music – his own. A 24-year-old Pennsylvania native, Tsui blossomed into one of the most popular cover artists on YouTube while at Yale, covering everyone from Jackson to Britney Spears to Adele. His channel amassed more than 500,000 subscribers with the help of childhood friend and producer Kurt Schneider, who helped deliver Tsui's covers and mash-ups to millions of fans. Last week, Tsui released his first album, "Make It Up," challenging his fans to embrace him as »

There is an unwritten law in the black community: support black projects in the arts, especially film and television ventures. The thinking is if we don’t support them then it will be that much harder to get another project made with black stories as the draw.
It’s hard as shit to get a black project green lit in Hollywood unless your last name is Perry. I’ve seen one Tyler Perry film and have no desire to see any others. It’s just not my thing. Nothing but respect for the man and his work but it’s just not for me. His films are the thing for an awful lot of black people and that is the audience he and his partners at Lion’s Gate pursue.
Now, a film like Red Tails was my thing. I’m a sucker for anything WWII and the story of »

Beyonce's Tuesday cancellation of a show in Belgium reignited rumors that the superstar might be pregnant again.
The Associated Press reports that Beyonce cancelled her May 14 concert at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp due to exhaustion and dehydration. A publicist told the AP that the singer has been advised by her doctors to rest.
She is scheduled to perform Wednesday night at the same arena, but "she is awaiting word from her doctors before making a decision" as to what she will do, the AP reported, per the superstar's publicist. After Antwerp, her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour heads to Switzerland, Italy, France and Eastern Europe before hitting the U.S. in June.
The concert cancellation Tuesday followed a flood of Beyonce pregnancy rumors that drenched the Internet on Monday. The New York Post first »

Not too shabby! Oprah shows off her spacious Maui farm in the June issue of O magazine. Alongside her close friend, fitness expert Bob Greene, the media mogul, 59, tells viewers that having the vast space to grow crops is a "full-circle moment because I grew up with a grandmother who was growing things." Continues Winfrey, "Everything we ate came from our own little one acre. And to have a full-circle moment with that - not in Mississippi, but in Maui - is fantastic. It's like having earth jewelry - jewelry that comes from the earth." The Oprah's Next Chapter host »
