Craig Ferguson Fed Ribs to a Pregnant Zoe Saldana

Guardians of the Galaxy star admitted she was having pregnancy cravings

Guardians of the Galaxy actress Zoe Saldana told Craig Ferguson on The Late Late Show Wednesday that she was experiencing cravings– like any pregnant woman.

So the late night host responded by taking out a platter of ribs, donuts and sandwiches from behind his desk. He even brought out more food after a commercial break.

The actress has her due date in eight to ten weeks and will be having twin boys according to People. She’s promoting the animated move, Book of Life, which is in theaters now.

Watch the New Hunger Games Trailer With Jennifer Lawrence

Katniss, played by Lawrence, is sent back to a devastated District 12

A new trailer for the next installment of the Hunger Games series shows Jennifer Lawrence alone and aghast as she wanders a bleak, destroyed world.

In the preview for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, Katniss, played by Lawrence, is sent back to her native District 12 to see the horror wrought on it by the Capitol, the malicious central government of the Hunger Games universe. A Lorde track, “Yellow Flick Beat,” plays in the background.

In the short video, Plutarch Heavensbee, played by Philip Seymour Hoffman, tells President Coin, played by Julianne Moore, that they must motivate Katniss by “making it personal for her” and letting “her see what the Capitol did to District 12.”

Meanwhile, Coin wonders if Katniss can “handle” fighting in the revolt against the government, after “the games destroyed her.”

“No one else can do this but her,” says Heavensbee, in the video.

A New York fan is calling on "every J.Lover in the world" to support his effort

Just over 1,300 people agree that singer, dancer and actress Jennifer Lopez should have a street named after her–where else but the Bronx.

Bronx resident Edgardo Luis Rivera launched a Change.org petition calling for one of the blocks in Jenny-From-the-Block’s old borough to be named in her honor.

Rivera has called on “every J.Lover and fan in the world” to get the district and city councils to consider naming a street after the “Luh You Papi” singer. The New York Daily News reports that Rivera wants part of Blackrock Ave., close to J.Lo’s home growing up, to adopt Lopez’s name.

Rivera announced recently that actress Kristin Chenoweth is among the 1,300 “Jennifer Lopez Way” supporters, but no word yet from the city. According to the Daily News, the city council has been reluctant to name streets after still-living people, though exceptions have been made in the past.

Erykah Badu Makes $3.60 Singing in Times Square

Just enough for a hot dog!

It has been a while since Erykah Badu released a new album, so in an effort to make a couple of dollars the R&B singer hit the streets of New York to… panhandle.

In a iPhone video released Wednesday by Badu, who has become a bit of a social media maven with her quirky vines and tweets, the soulful artist stands in the middle of Time Square, holding out a hat and singing to passersby. Throughout the video, Badu goes largely unnoticed, though she’s able to collect a couple of dollars ($3.60 to be exact) as a result of her efforts.

Badu even quips that with “some initiative, you can make money.” To finish things off, the ever-political songstress reminds viewers that, “in reality, life is a lot harder than this.”

Neil Patrick Harris Will Host the Oscars in 2015

Will be held on Feb. 22 next year

Neil Patrick Harris is to host the Academy Awards next year, reports Variety.

The actor, best known for his work on How I Met Your Mother, has become in recent years a semiprofessional host of sorts, hosting the Emmys twice and the Tonys four times, and exerting a great deal of energy in the process.

His awards-show gigs are, in contrast to last year’s low-key, pizza-slinging Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres, characterized by a wild commitment to song and dance, as in his 2013 Tonys opening number:

Harris appeared to confirm his hosting in a brief video depicting the Oscars gig as the final item on his “bucket list”:

Harris is having a good month; he’s also in the ensemble cast of Gone Girl, one of this year’s Oscar best-picture hopefuls, and his memoir, Choose Your Own Autobiography, was released yesterday (and may now need an extra chapter or two). The 87th Academy Awards will be held Feb. 22, 2015.

The Most Talked-About Celebrity Bangs of All Time

In honor of Beyonce's "controversial" hair cut

Beyoncé got bangs, and people have feelings about it.

Is the super short, Bettie Page-inspired fringe the Bangpacolyspe? “Vintage but not cheesy”? A Blue Ivy art project? Proof that Queen Bey has bad hair days just like us? Absolutely none of our damn business? It’s all a matter of opinion… that will be shared again and again on Twitter.

For whatever reason, emotions run high when it comes to celebrity bangs.”If you’re going with a black eye or bangs, go with the black eye,” actress Kaley Cuoco said after getting skewered for embracing the fringe on a 2013 red carpet. And so, in the name of journalism, we have compiled a list of the most influential — and at times, “controversial” — celebrity bangs.

Bettie Page

Here’s the 1950’s pin-up said to have inspired Beyoncé. If you’ve had any impact on Beyoncé, you’re obviously one of the most influential beings on the planet.

Michelle Obama

“This is my midlife crisis,” FLOTUS told Rachel Ray, “jokingly,” in a 2013 interview. And oh, what a bold statement the bangs were. The Wall Street Journal noted: “These aren’t the kind of subtle, side-swept bangs that some women favor, including Duchess Kate. Rather, Mrs. Obama opted for full-on, forehead-covering fringe. It’s a bold move at a high profile time for the First Lady, just days before President Obama’s inauguration.” The Cut prematurely mourned the loss during Obama’s Bowie State commencement speech, but The Daily Beast was quick to assure concerned masses that “they’re still on her head… she just parted her hair differently.”

(The bangs have since retired.)

Kerry Washington

But, “were Michelle Obama’s bangs inspired by Kerry Washington?” The Daily Mail (and others) wondered. FLOTUS does binge-watch Scandal.

Hilary Clinton


Michelle isn’t the only woman in politics to make waves with her choice of bangs. Hillary Clinton’s January 2014 bangs were “oddly controversial,” Bustle noted, as other publications questioned what her “bangs mean for America.” Imagine if Clinton had sported bangs and her infamous scrunchie? Then the Union would have been put in a tailspin.

The New Girl star and hipster icon isn’t just known for her bangs, as Buzzfeed points out, she is hardly recognizable without them.

One word: Fierce.

Andrea Sachs


Yes, Anne Hathaway often sports bangs in real life. But this isn’t about Anne Hathaway. This is about her character Andrea Sachs in The Devil Wears Prada. Andrea was nothing without bangs. Nothing. And after she got them, she became everything, inspiring little girls everywhere to don the haircut that goes hand in hand with being a successful assistant to a high-powered, mercurial fashion editor.

Rooney Mara

The look was created for Mara’s role as Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Vogue dubbed this ultra chic individual’s adoption of blunt bangs, “The Rooney Mara effect.”
