  • 5 Most Bizarre Celeb Moments at Mayweather-Pacquiao Fight

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 19 hrs ago

    Did everyone have a nice nap last night? Since the "fight of the century" was essentially just Floyd Mayweather dancing around for $180 million, we couldn't help but lose focus and become more interested in the star-studded crowd.

    Here are five celeb moments that got our attention:

    1. Justin Bieber is Officially No Longer the Oddest Member of Floyd Mayweather's Entourage 2015 has been the year of mature Bieber (or so we're led to believe) and that translated to the "Confident" crooner's wardrobe choice for last night. The 21-year-old singer nicely combed his freshly cut hair and opted for a slick gray suit to escort The Champ to the ring. While the Biebs blended in with the grown up, A-List crowd, it was the Burger King who stood out. No, really, Floyd chose to be accompanied by the fast-food chain's mascot as he made his way to the ring. Wonder how much BK dished out for that? Money Mayweather indeed.

    He has also been a trending topic on Twitter, but for all the wrong reasons.

  • It's a Girl for the Royal Family!

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 2 days ago

    Kate Middleton gave birth to a baby girl at 8:34 a.m. local time on May 2. The little lady weighed in at 8 lbs., 3 oz.

    Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a daughter at 8.34am.

    The baby weighs 8lbs 3oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth.

    The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales & The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry & members of both families have been informed

    Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.

    This is the second child for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Their son, Prince George, was born in July 2013. Prince William and Kate's little girl is fourth in line to the throne, pushing Prince Harry to fifth.

    Middleton, 33, had to announce her pregnancy sooner than expected — at around 12 weeks — because she was forced to cancel an appearance due to Hyperemesis Gravidarum, or acute morning sickness.

    With Kate's first pregnancy, she was so ill with the same condition that she had to be hospitalized. However, during the second time around she was able to be treated by doctors at her residence in Kensington Palace.

    Prince William, 32, stepped in for his wife at the planned engagement in Oxford.

  • Idina Menzel Is Insulted People Thought She Went Blond Because of 'Frozen'

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 2 days ago

    The 43-year-old actress — who voiced Elsa in the hit Disney film — switched up her hair color back in March, and naturally comparisons were drawn between her and her popular character. While the remarks seemed to be rather innocuous , Menzel took offense.

    "They say I did it because I was inspired by my Elsa character, which I found very insulting," Menzel said on Friday on Good Day L.A. "That I would wake up one day and want to be blond, so I could look like an animated character... I just never, ever do anything with my hair and I finished my Broadway show. Eight shows a week, same thing."

    Idina then pointed to a video of Elsa and sarcastically said, "I look just like her! Oh Elsa, thank you so much. We're exactly the same aren't we? Those skinny balletic arms and that tiny waist."

  • Kendall Jenner's Calvin Klein Billboard Vandalized by Drone

    Well, that's one way to use a drone.

    A graffiti artist named Katsu used a hacked Phantom drone to vandalize a new Calvin Klein Jeans billboard featuring Kendall Jenner on Wednesday. Katsu scribbled red paint across the model/reality star/Kardashian little sister's face on one of the largest and most viewed billboards in New York City.

    He then cheerfully boasted about his work to Wired.

    "It turned out surprisingly well," he said. "It's exciting to see its first potential use as a device for vandalism."

    Katsu even documented the illegal act, which took less than a minute, but called the whole thing "a bit tense."



  • Kobe Bryant: My Daughter Can Date When She's Married

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 3 days ago

    Can you imagine taking out Kobe Bryant's daughter? Neither can the NBA player.

    The Los Angeles Lakers star sat down with the The Insider 's Michael Yo and revealed that — like most parents — he's scared for his 12-year-old daughter, Natalia, to enter her teenage years. "That's when you wish you can just freeze time and just not go through that period," confessed Bryant, who also has a 9-year-old daughter named Gianna with his wife, Vanessa.

    Unfortunately, you can't stop time. "What age can she start dating? When she's married," Bryant cracked. "We still don't know what came first, the chicken or the egg right? I mean, she can date when she's married."

    Poor girl.

    He continued, "I'm going to arrange it, it's just going to be when she's married, which by definition means she can't date."

    After Yo did his best impression of a young suitor coming by the Bryant home to see one of Kobe's daughters, the hoops star explained how he would answer the door. "Yeah, the idea is to be as intimidating as I possibly can, full black mamba face."

    Except ask out Natalia.

  • Stacey Dash Stands By Controversial Gender Pay Gap Comments as Fallout Continues

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 3 days ago

    .@meredithvieira is my friend. I LOVE having discussions w/ her on @MeredithShow. When we disagree it does not mean we are tense #GrownUps

    I am not ANTI-WOMAN! I just don't believe that my gender needs a bunch of men in Congress to "save us" from the big bad world.

    The 77 cents vs a dollar is based on B.S. statistics. STOP USING IT. CELEBRATE that EDUCATED women in their 20's now make more than men!


    I do apologize for saying that I would slap Kristen Stewart. I don't know if you've noticed but I don't have the best filter in the world!

    I'm for equality of OPPORTUNITY. NOT equality of OUTCOME. That is the FALSE PROMISE of Liberalism. It is a con on society.

    @REALStaceyDash Shut up. Just. Shut up.

    Vieira also did not see eye to eye with her guest.

  • Nick Cannon Shows Support for Mariah Carey Ahead of Vegas Stint

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 4 days ago

    The America's Got Talent host, 36, showed his support for ex Mariah Carey, 45, ahead of her new "Mariah: #1 to Infinity" show at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

    "#1ToInfinity album in stores May 6th. #TheQueen #NoHate #HardestWorkingWomanIKnow," Cannon captioned the above pic of Carey's new album cover on Wednesday.

    The sweet post comes just two days after Mariah dropped her new single "Infinity," where she sure sounded like she was dissing her soon-to-be former husband. Here's a sample of the lyrics: "Name hold weight like kilos/ Boy you actin' so corny like Fritos/ Wouldn't have none of that without me, though."

    When speaking with Extra, Mariah didn't say the song was specifically about Cannon, just "about loving yourself first."

  • FKA twigs Poses Wearing Engagement Ring (and Nothing Else)

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 4 days ago

    FKA twigs attended the Swarovski Crystal World reopening evening gala in Wattens, Austria, on Tuesday night and the singer decided to unwind after the soiree with a nice bubble bath. How do we know this? Her stylist Karen Clarkson posted a photo of it.

    " Always have a bath before bed," Clarkson captioned the sultry shot above. While twigs, real name Tahliah Barnett, kept everything covered up she did show off one important item… her engagement ring.

    News broke earlier this month that the Twilight actor, 28, and FKA twigs, 27, were set to tie the knot although they have stayed mum on the reports. However, we just got a glimpse of the diamond serpentine-like piece of jewelry over the weekend. She wore a ring on that finger during an outing in Venice, California, and again on the red carpet last night.

    Clearly, she doesn’t have plans to take it off anytime soon.

  • Amal and George Clooney Do Dinner With the Alamuddins

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 4 days ago

    They're just one big happy family!

    George and Amal Clooney dined at Caravaggio on Manhattan's Upper East Side on Tuesday. But it wasn't date night. The couple were joined by the Alamuddin clan, including Amal's father Ramzi, her mother, Baria, and her sister, Tala. Naturally, the 53-year-old actor was ever the gentleman, escorting Baria from the car into the Italian restaurant.

    Amal, 37, opted to wear a short floral-print black frock for the occasion. She and George have spent a lot of time with their respective in-laws since getting hitched last September. In March, the newlyweds were spotted taking George's mother out for a night on the town.

    The Clooneys have temporarily relocated to New York City while George films Money Monster. Fortunately, Amal has had no problem staying busy while her man is on set. The British barristeris serving as a visiting professor at Columbia Law School.

    Not a bad way to spend their first year as Mr. and Mrs. Clooney.

  • Robert Downey Jr. Calls British Journalist a 'Bottom-Feeding Muckraker' and 'Syphilitic Parasite'

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 5 days ago

    If you need a refresher, The Avengers: Age of Ultron star was talking with Britain's Channel 4 News about the upcoming film when interviewer Krishnan Guru-Murthy took the conversation in a very uncomfortable direction. Guru-Murthy randomly started asking Downey, 50, about the "dark periods" of his past and his political views after prison.

    Robert sat there awkwardly for a few minutes and attempted to give Guru-Murthy a sound bite before eventually getting up and leaving because it was "getting a little Diane Sawyer in here."

    RDJ was in a much more cheerful mood on Tuesday while talking to Howard Stern where he addressed the incident.

    The sitdown unfortunately happened to be Robert's first interview of that particular day: "I didn't know what to expect, and I go, 'You dummy, what do you think, do you think you are in Gumbaya land?”

    Consider yourself warned, randomly invasive journalists.
