Neil Patrick Harris Will Host The 2015 Oscars!

  • Neil Patrick Harris is set to host the 2015 Academy Awards. He’s performed at the awards before but this will be his first time hosting. He’s already been the host at two Emmy broadcasts and four Tony Awards broadcasts. Can’t wait! [TV Line]
  • Chris Brown took it upon himself to comment on a disease mercilessly leading thousands upon thousands of people to painful, isolated deaths by tweeting “I don’t know … But I think this Ebola epidemic is a form of population control. Shit is getting crazy bruh.” Headdesk. He followed up with another tweet that said, “Let me shut my black ass up.” [Death + Taxes]
  • “Allure of Antebellum”, a Blake Lively-styled photo shoot/gushfest glorifying white southern slave owners on her lifestyle site Preserve, may be partially plagiarized. Parts of the essay, which has no byline, look suspiciously similar to a 2012 article that appeared on Examiner.com. [Gawker]
  • Beware, a drunken zombie Santa is on the loose. [HuffPost]
  • Taylor Swift is on the November cover of Harper’s Bazaar Germany. [Celebuzz]
  • In addition to returning to “The Voice” next year, Christina Aguilera has promised to release new music! [Pink Is The New Blog]
  • The perfect red wine for all of life’s problems. [Vanity Fair]
  • “Slipknot Burning Camel Dung at 2014 Knotfest Banned by Fire Officials” is probably my favorite headline of the day. [Loudwire]
