Ohhhh myyyy godddd guuuyyyysss: Samy Bouzaglo of Amy’s Baking Company/”Kitchen Nightmares” fame tried to stab someone with a butter knife, so he and Amy are on TV again.
My boyfriend and I don’t have cable, so I don’t watch TV, but I would for the occasions on which the Bouzaglos are being … the Bouzaglos. I love them so much. (You might notice a trend: Tacky people are my fave.) The great thing about them is that they’re just completely bonkers — it’s not that they’re doing it for the cameras, it’s not that they’re trying to get on TV, it’s that they’re legit out of control. I mean, yeah, they tried to get on TV by going on “Kitchen Nightmares,” but their intention was to be vindicated and instead they became notorious for being deranged narcissists, so it kind of blew up in their faces.

Emma Watson’s speech on gender equality at the UN may have sparked a seriously bizarre marketing stunt/prank on 4Chan/stupid hoax, but it also educated countless young people and did a massive amount of good. One of those young people, 15-year-old Ed Holtom, loved her speech so much that he wrote into UK’s Telegraph to express his support. In his letter, he worries that some of the other boys at his school have a more hostile view towards feminism, and he makes a call to action for other young people to reject gender stereotypes. Holtom told BuzzFeed, “I was inspired by Emma Watson’s speech, but also by Beyoncé’s philosophy of female empowerment. I didn’t expect anyone to take an interest in it, but I’m so glad people agree with me!” Is this kid awesome or what? The letter that appears in the Telegraph was shortened a bit, but he provided BuzzFeed with the full version, which you can read after the jump!

Beyonce made a surprise appearance during Jay Z’s set at the Global Citizen Festival in NYC this weekend, and it was glorious. She joined him to sing Justin Timberlake’s vocals in “Holy Grail,” and then added her voice to “Young Forever” (in a totally on-point outfit, I might add). You’d think that being fresh off the heels of their On The Run tour would make these two sick of performing together, but it just never gets old for the rest of us. All rumors aside, I am forever obsessed with these two. They bring out all the feels every damn time. [Rolling Stone]
The first rule of doing an interview, particularly with very busy celebrities promoting film or television projects, is to come prepared. See the movie! Have a list of questions! Have a general sense of the plot! Know what makes this movie different from another movie the same actor starred in! That’s where Denver’s own Chris Parente fouled up. Despite claiming to have seen “The Skeleton Twins” at the Toronto Film Festival, Parente got a touch confused during his interview with the film’s stars, Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader. See, much to Wiig’s surprise, Parente second question was all about whether she had any advice to give about going nude on camera — after all, “YOU DID IT IN THE FILM!” he said upon seeing Wiig’s shocked reaction. Wrong film, bro. Watch Wiig and Hader handle Parente’s shit for him.
