Maybe I should be more embarrassed that I’m so excited about this, but for the first time in seven years, Hilary Duff is releasing a new album! Her new single, “Chasing The Sun,” will be released on July 29 along with its music video, and is already available for pre-order. Duff is still at work on the full album, which will come out this fall, and she’s also heading back to TV in the new TVLand series “Younger.” Since making us all fall in love with her as Lizzie McGuire and releasing a slew of pop albums a million years ago, Hilary has gotten married and then separated, had a baby, and even appeared on “Gossip Girl” when the series started to go stale (I totally still watched).

Blake Lively sat down with Vogue to answer 73 questions and heartily promote her new lifestyle site Preserve while decorating cupcakes. Things we learned? She identifies most with the male characters on “Sex and the City” (oh how I’d love for her to elaborate on that one), she’s a fan of Alan Watts, and she likes chocolate souffle. We also now know that her hubby Ryan Reynolds refers to their kitchen as “The Blakery,” and that she isn’t sure that people still go to Starbucks these days. Yes Blake, they do. [Vogue]
Kendall Jenner is topless on the cover of the July issue of Love magazine, and something about the cover’s kiddie-style layout feels super skeevy to me. Despite the very grownup-looking photo, the font on the cover is really childlike, and the twee little cartoon flowers and snails don’t help either. Beyond the weirdness of referring to an adult woman posing nude as a “girl,” it’s kind of impossible not to make the association that American Girl is also the title of a magazine and doll line for young girls. Ick. It’s tough not to think of 18-year-old Kendall as perpetually young because she’s always been the little sister to the other Kardashian ladies, and I know she’s a legal grownup now, but I just can’t get past the creep factor. Does anybody else find it totally offputting? [Huffington Post]
“It’s commentary, like, ‘I know what you think of me,’ and I’m alluding to that. You know, I have slept with a lot of guys in the industry, but none of them helped me get my record deals. Which is annoying.”
Lana Del Rey told Complex magazine that her song “Fucked My Way Up to the Top” is not about what you think. She did not sleep with some dude to land a record deal, thank you very much, and I find it annoying that this question follows her and other ladies through their careers. She seems to be feeling a bit dark and twisty these days, and in her interview, she talks about the pain her fame has caused her and what it means to have her work misinterpreted by the masses. According to her, those gold and platinum records don’t mean so much without supportive friends to share them with. [Complex]
When Angela Kinsey from “The Office” was invited to Share Day at her six-year-old daughter’s school, she ended up performing a rap of “The Itsy Bitsy Spider.” As she tells Conan, rapping is something of an everyday habit in the Kinsey household, but her daughter’s classmates were not impressed. Kids are a way tougher crowd than TV critics! [The Daily Dot]
Following today’s news that the world’s most famous Momager, Kris Jenner, will soon release a Kardashian cookbook, it left us wondering what else the family could possibly monetize? They’ve already created clothing lines, self tanner, fragrances, accessories, lingerie and have been the faces of diet drinks, alcohol, shoes, and even pads for slight bladder leakage. But there are still a few untapped markets left for the Kardashians to bust into. Here are ten products we’re shocked aren’t already Kardashian-sponsored, that totally should be.
Last night, the Twitter account for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Water accidentally tweeted that they’d made it to C-List celebrity status in Kim Kardashian’s super-addictive iPhone game. Someone at the EPA must be really hooked. Everyone needs a little downtime to just play games now and then, even if their job is saving the earth, right? The good news is the EPA handled it like champs instead of just pretending it never happened: Keep reading »
I love it when Beyonce uses social media to pander to her feminist fan base. Makes me feel special!
