Beyonce spent the weekend entertaining fans — including our girl Megan — at hubby Jay Z’s Made In America Festival in Philadelphia, then immediately jetted off to Ibiza for a little rest and relaxation. Here she is boarding a yacht with baby Blue Ivy, wearing what I assume is the bottom half of her performing outfit. Girl, get yourself some Havaianas! [Photos: Fame/Flynet]
There’s a lot of things you could say about Parker Posey, but you’d certainly have to agree that the woman knows how to live. Look at her here, strolling down the sidewalk in NYC, yapping on the phone to her best gay friend, sipping on some iced coffee. Aren’t you just completely jealz of her mellow lifestyle?

“Blue Jasmine” was incredible, and Cate Blanchett is a dream, and I would never, not in a million years, be caught dead saying a cross word about her, and I love and embrace this odd spiderweb dress — but GODDAMN if the weird, vague, is it really there or am I imagining this face on the right side hasn’t been scaring the shit out of me all day. SO FRIGGIN’ CREEPY. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
I don’t usually go super crazy for babies, celebrity or otherwise, but for some reason I’m borderline obsessed with Hilary Duff’s adorable son, Luca. Maybe it’s because he sort of shares a name with Amelia’s adorable dog Lucca, maybe it’s because he’s always dressed in stylish little outfits with a slightly incredulous look on his face, but whatever the reason, I can’t get enough of this kid. And this photo of Luca very seriously pointing at the sky and/or telling the world he’s #1? It’s killing me with cuteness. I’m dead. [Photo: Splash News]
I don’t know about you, but I always like to check in on my favorite former “Jersey Shore” stars. Otherwise I kind of start to worry about them, you know? Take Deena Cortese, for example — if I didn’t throw her name into my Google search bar once in a while, I’d never know what she was up to. Lo, here she is at InTouch Weekly‘s VMA after party, sporting allllllll of the makeup and what appears to be yet another brand new face. Deena, it seems, cruelly left approximately no makeup for her friend Jenni Farley to wear to the event, because JWoww is looking fresh-faced as hell! I’m not even being sarcastic like I usually am; JWoww looks great. I’m even willing to overlook her stupid glittery Princess of Party City dress, because this is really a step in the right direction. Take note, little meatball, as you embark on your new singing career.
It’s like the Titanic, but it’s a strip club. Seriously. Marine biologist, Gil Koplovitz, discovered an abandoned, sub-aquatic venue in the water beneath Eilat, Israel, while working in the area. According to Koplovitz, it used to be an underwater restaurant, but apparently it closed and re-opened as a strip club called the Nyphas Show Bar. “The entrance [to the strip joint] is above water … People just crossed a 230-foot bridge and went down a flight of stairs. No need to get wet,” Koplovitz said. There’s no clue as to when the club closed its doors, but the stripper poles are still intact as is the website for the restaurant. So, definitely in this millennium. After the jump, check out a picture of the inside of the club. I think someone needs to reopen this place with real-life mermaids. [i09 via HuffPo] Keep reading »
It was only a matter of time until Alana Thompson better known as Honey Boo Boo was initiated into the world of drag. It’s a natural fit for a fierce 7-year-old who already has a stage name, wears hairpieces and knows how to read a bitch like a pro. TMZ reports that Uncle Poodle and Mama June took little miss Boo Boo to Hamburger Mary’s, a gay burger joint in Jacksonville, Florida to play Drag Queen bingo (where Mama June made her Bingo face, no doubt). Allegedly, so many Queens wanted autographs and photos that the Thompsons put out a beer pitcher as an impromptu tip jar and promised to donate the funds to a cyber-bullying charity. WERK!

You guys, John Mayer is cold. Katy Perry’s wispy arms aren’t keeping him warm at night. Why else would he be swathed in 17 layers of clothing on the cover of his new record, Paradise Valley (named after the area in Montana where Mayer lives most of the time)? Has Mayer been banished to sleep outside underneath his handmade quilt, with nothing but his loyal Labrador retriever to cuddle up to? Somebody get this guy a space heater. He’s wearing a bandana-print shirt. Things must have really gotten desperate.
Many items come out of vending machines that are essential to my everyday life, like tampons and peanut M&Ms. If a new vending machine out of Japan takes hold, we’ll be able to get our brassieres on the quick, too. Lingerie brand Wacoal debuted their bra vending machine, which features a bust-sizing chart, at a store in the city of Shibuya, Japan. After you dispense your $30 into the machine and punch in your item choice on a keypad, your wireless bra is dispensed in clear baggies. Sure it’s a quirky idea, but bras are really something you want to make sure fit properly before you buy them. I’ll stick to M&Ms, thanks. [PSFK; Kotaku]
Has this week been kinda brutal for you guys? I swear half the recent updates on my Twitter and Facebook feeds have been along the lines of “Today sucks!” or “Why does life have to be so freakin’ complicated?!” I have personally cried in public twice this week (one outburst took place at the DMV, which was to be expected). Let’s all take a second to take a deep breath and remember that at one point, we were all toddlers, and the most confusing and intense moment in our lives was when we tasted a lemon for the first time. Thanks to these brilliant photos, we can relive the moment life first handed us lemons (and the best part? Since we’re adults now, we can use those lemons to make lemon drops!). Here’s to a happier, simpler weekend. [Daily Mail]
