You may not have noticed -- we don't know the state of your eyes, and we're not trying to make assumptions about your taste -- but 2015 has sort of turned into the year of Kourtney Kardashian. Sure, her breakup with Scott Disick, that infernal, never-ending breakup, must have been rough, but the way she's handled it is nothing short of inspiring. She could have easily had dozens of different types of breakdowns over the whole thing, she could have completely fallen apart, but she didn't. And here she is, just a few short months since the end of her decade-long relationship, hiking, smiling from ear to ear, and rocking the hell out of some workout gear. And that is wonderful.
We've said it before, and we'll say it again, probably for the rest of forever: Team Kourtney. There is no other choice.
Chris Pratt is a beautiful angel sent to us from heaven to make us smile and laugh and feel good feelings: that's not even an opinion, that's a fact. As his latest act of greatness, he hopped on his Instagram to show us a picture of himself from many moons ago. Yes, we now have, if you can even let your heart believe it, a yearbook photo of Chris Pratt from all the way back when he was 13 years old. You can click the image up there to see the thing, and so sorry to spoil this for you, but it's adorable.
What a nice reminder that the world still has so much beauty to offer, huh?
Nick Carter deserves the biggest damn comeback of the decade, and when you see the above clip from last night's "Dancing With the Stars," you're gonna be in complete agreement.
Nick dances a skit from "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)," and we weren't the only ones who were wishing his partner would get out of the way to let him do this alone ... Nick dances circles around Sharna Burgess, and the backstory behind his joining the band -- filmed alongside fellow BSB members -- will bring real tears to your eyes.
It's no wonder Nick went through the struggles he did during his post-adolescence -- and then also having to endure that horrific reality show, "" -- and this makes his story ... and his insanely on point performance ... all the more poignant.
Spoiler: in the above clip, Kim Kardashian is an expert on Uranus. If that isn't reason enough to watch this video, brought to you by Ellen Degeneres, then maybe your sense of humor dried up with the waters of Mars.
Special shout-out to the original "Martian," Matt Damon, who's able to have anything to do with Kim K and uranus and keep his composure. Lesser men have gone to pieces.
No, truth be told, this is probably the most candid Rihanna's ever been, talking about hooking up, race-faker Rachel Dolezal, and yes, Chris Brown. Say what?
In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, and referencing the Chris Brown assault and taking him back after everything went down, Rihanna says, "I was that girl. That girl who felt that as much pain as this relationship is, maybe some people are built stronger than others."
"Maybe I’m one of those people built to handle s--t like this." she continues. "Maybe I’m the person who’s almost the guardian angel to this person, to be there when they’re not strong enough, when they’re not understanding the world, when they just need someone to encourage them in a positive way and say the right thing.”
But hey, did she seriously think she could change him? Yes. "A hundred percent." she says. "I was very protective of [Chris]. I felt that people didn’t understand him. Even after … But you know, you realize after a while that in that situation you’re the enemy. You want the best for them, but if you remind them of their failures, or if you remind them of bad moments in their life, or even if you say I’m willing to put up with something, they think less of you—because they know you don’t deserve what they’re going to give."
"And if you put up with it," she muses, "maybe you are agreeing that you [deserve] this, and that’s when I finally had to say, ‘Uh-oh, I was stupid thinking I was built for this.’ Sometimes you just have to walk away.”
About Chris and their messed-up relationship, she concludes, “I don’t hate him. I will care about him until the day I die. We’re not friends, but it’s not like we’re enemies. We don’t have much of a relationship now.”
Rihanna also speaks out about collaborating with Eminem on the loaded “Love the Way You Lie” -- a dysfunctional relationship anthem. She says, " ... The lyrics were just so true to what I felt and couldn’t say to the world at that time.”
Later, she spoke about Rachel Dolezal, who she calls a 'hero'. "I think [Dolezal] was a bit of a hero, because she kind of flipped on society a little bit," Rihanna says. "Is it such a horrible thing that she pretended to be black? Black is a great thing, and I think she legit changed people’s perspective a bit and woke people up.”
In conclusion, sex -- and just how much she's not getting. "If I wanted to [engage in one-night stands ] I would completely do that,” she says. “I am going to do what makes me feel happy, what I feel like doing. But that would be empty for me; that to me is a hollow move. I would wake up the next day feeling like s--t."
So there you have it, folks ... Rihanna in a nutshell, like never before -- and honestly, though we're kind of repelled by some of the things she said, we have to give her credit for being so damn honest. It's pretty much unheard of these days.
If you notice anything at all "funny" about this Kylie Jenner picture -- aside from the fact that young starlets feel compelled to not only wear body shapers, but to show them off to the public because no shame -- it's likely to be what appears as butt pads built into that pair of Spanx up there.
After Kylie posted the above photo on Snapchat, the internet (well, the part of the internet that follows Kylie's every move obsessively, like the questionable folks who hang out on her social channels all day long) went wild, saying, "OMG Kylie Jenner pads her ass for real!" which prompted Kylie to respond in kind, "They are Spanx ... here's the link if you want some."
While the product does have "butt pockets" in order to "release for a perky backside," we're still left wondering ... because really, that booty morphs more than Khloe Kardashian's head does.
"I'm in a good place. I wasn't, but I am now. It's amazing how quickly life can turn around for you. I've had some pretty cool things in recent times that have happened, and I'm loving it. ... I push-mow my lawn because I'm so stupid that, I mean, I've made enough money at this point, I could have a riding lawn mower or even better yet, just hire somebody to come mow my lawn. But it's like, you know, we had all this rain in Oklahoma, the first part of the year, like an unbelievable amount and one day, in the middle of crisis and chaos with my personal life, I walked out and I was just thinking, like, 'What's going on in my life? I mean, it's just so crazy, what the hell is going on with my yard?!"
--Blake Shelton to CMT on the aftermath of his divorce from Miranda Lambert, and how he's lost some weight, to boot.
You know, we're all for Blake doing his thing to get over his split with Miranda ... and if he's willing to be pushing a lawn mower to work off his frustration hey -- we have lawns, too, you know. The only caveat is that no shirts and no crying are allowed.
