Zooey Deschanel has always been pretty upfront about her disinterest in having children and in August’s InStyle, she calls out the tabloids for their complicity. You tell ‘em, sister! [InStyle]
No matter how many times he sadly sits down to eat a cupcake alone on a park bench — and you endlessly insert that same picture into images filled with cats or a reproduction of Lunch Atop A Skyscraper or whatever—Keanu Reeves will forever be known as the man who started Dogstar and, in turn, ruined it for all other actors to start bands without public outcry and critical mockery.
Lucky for us, there’s a new crop of fresh-faced thespians that might actually be able to shake the Dogstar curse and, dare we say, become both successful actors/actresses and musicians.

We love a good cocktail just as much as we love analyzing the inner workings of celebrities, based off the personality traits presented to us via Us Weekly, Billy Bush’s incisive commentary on “Access Hollywood,” and their one true gift to us plebes — their bodies of work.
