  • Britney Spears Performs in an 'I Heart Charlie' Vest

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 1 hr ago

    If you've been lucky enough to catch Britney Spears's Las Vegas extravaganza, "Piece of Me," recently then you've probably noticed the big, glittery statement she's been wearing. Spears has been rocking a vest that says "I [heart] Charlie." Charlie, of course, refers to Brit's boyfriend of four months, Charlie Ebersol.

    Obviously, wearing your boyfriend's name on your shirt is a rather bold statement — especially after just four months of dating — but when you know, you know . And it's not like Brit's in her "...Baby One More Time" phase anymore. She's a woman! She's 33! She's seen a lot!

    After a rather tumultous train of exes, it's highly likely that the woman knows what she wants. And — as many grown women with kids want — she probably wants someone who is good to her kids.

    The same can't be said of Brit's cheating ex David Lucado — we only saw pics of him with the boys once in a blue moon.

    There's no doubt Carrie Underwood is feeling blown away — because on Friday, Feb. 27, the country crooner gave birth a baby boy named Isaiah Michael Fisher. This is the first child for the 31-year-old and her hockey player husband, Mike Fisher.

    "Tiny hands and tiny feet…God has blessed us with an amazing gift!" Carrie shared on Instagram along with this precious little hand pic. "Isaiah Michael Fisher – born on February 27. Welcome to the world, sweet angel!"

    Underwood first announced she was expecting last September via another adorable Instagram photo, this one of herself with her two dogs, Ace and Penny, who were proudly dressed in "I'm going to be a big brother" and "I'm going to be a big sister" tees.

  • Kanye West Talks Ego, Elitism, Nicki Minaj at Oxford: I Wanted to Be 'Picasso or Greater'

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 4 hrs ago

    Say what you will about Kanye West — and you most certainly will, in the comments section — but while he's impulsive and indulgent, he speaks his mind freely and it's a breath of fresh air in this media-trained modern world. Above all else, he is almost always right. Each time Kanye West delivers one of his "rants" or "meltdowns," if you listen, really listen, to what he is saying, there is always a nugget of truth hidden in the rhetoric.

    Nothing was different when Kanye West spoke Monday at North West's future alma mater, Oxford University, before a group of 350 students. His self-described stream of conciousness lasted for about 30 minutes and touched on a range of topics, from The Matrix , to ego, to materialism, to Nicki Minaj.

    On his requirements when giving such an address:

    On ego:

    On Nicki Minaj:

    On his reputation and being called crazy:

    On his goals:

    And on his perception that The Matrix is the Bible of the post-information age:

    On President Obama:

    On materialism:

    Taylor Swift will not talk about Katy Perry, but she has no problem praising another one of her peers.

    The "Style" singer took to Twitter over the weekend to gush about Lady Gaga, and, clearly, the feelings are mutual.

    Is it just me or is Lady Gaga, like, fully LIVING right now?!? #goals

    Perhaps Swift, 25, caught wind of the adorable photos of Lady Gaga, 28, taking the polar plunge in Chicago with new fiancé Taylor Kinney. The "Applause" crooner was directed to the message and replied on Monday.

    @taylorswift13 wow you're a sweetheart! Life is friends, family, and love! We all see that in you, your prince charming will come! ❤️💋

  • Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter Honeymoon in Bora Bora

    After an exhausting awards season, Benedict Cumberbatch has found time to properly unwind with his new bride.

    The Imitation Game star, 38, and Sophie Hunter are on a 10-day honeymoon in Tahiti, according to E! News. The newlyweds are staying at a five-star resort in Bora Bora.

    "Benedict looked so excited to be there and was snapping pictures with his camera," an eyewitness says. "They were given pineapple-infused water and beautiful flower leis that they immediately put around their necks and smelled the fresh flowers."

    The Sherlock star and his pregnant wife, 36, are staying in a water bungalow which they have "rarely" left (naturally).

    The Cumberbatches also reportedly enjoyed massages in their room when it rained.

  • Alec Baldwin Rapped With Chance the Rapper

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 23 hrs ago

    Eminem and Elton John. Kanye West and Paul McCartney. Sir Mix-a-Lot and the Seattle Symphony Orchestra. We've seen plenty of unlikely collaborations in our day, but nothing quite as strange as this. Alec Baldwin and Chance the Rapper joined forces to raise money for Young Chicago Authors, an arts organization promoting youth literacy. The two made their debut performance onstage at an event for the charity over the weekend, then Chance posted a snippet of their performance on Instagram.

    Chance does the beatboxing while Baldwin raps lines from Carl Sandburg's poem "Chicago."

    Sorry Carly Rae Jepsen, but we smell song of the summer potential here.

  • Leonard Nimoy Laid to Rest

    Live long and prosper — and your legacy will continue after you're gone. Star Trek legend Leonard Nimoy was laid to rest during a private ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday. The actor died Friday, Feb. 27, at the age of 83 from end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

    Details of the Jewish service were kept intentionally under wraps in order to prevent the Westboro Baptist Church from picketing the event. (Westboro Baptist is a relatively small but extremely vocal group that hosts aggressive protests outside the funerals of servicemen and women and celebs who hold beliefs counter to its own.) The efforts were successful, as the church called off its plans after admitting it couldn't track down the funeral's location. Fortunately, the memorial proved to be peaceful and truly touching for the family and friends who attended.

    Rabbi John L. Rosove, who is also the first cousin to Nimoy's wife, Susan, provided a eulogy in which he talked about the actor's love for his other half:

  • Tech Scion Kim Kardashian Covers 'Adweek': Yes, My Selfies Are 'Ridiculous'

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    Silicon Valley's next big thing, Kim Kardashian, is on the cover of this month's AdWeek. Kardashian talks about her burgeoning mobile empire, whether or not she'll ever quit social media, and the legacy her many selfies will leave behind.

    With a hit television show, more than 40 million followers across multiple social media platforms, and a hugely successful app, Kim Kardashian is the true Queen of All Media. But, for now, mobile is Kim's focus.

    Another thing Kim wants to create more of? Selfies. She'll never stop taking selfies. Your hatred feeds her.

    Selfies and apps. It's remarkable how the world can change in just 10 years.

    Kim also says she's got no plans to quit social media in the immediate future, which, thank god .

    Her eyes. And her negligee.

  • Meryl Streep's 3 Daughters Stun in Fashion Shoot

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    Meryl Streep's gene pool is unsurprisingly a mighty one. Look no further than the new campaign for the H&M-owned store & Other Stories, which features Streep's three radiant daughters with husband Don Gummer — Mamie Gummer, 31, Grace Gummer, 28, and Louisa Gummer, 23 — together modeling the items from the new collaborationbetween Clare Vivierand & Other Stories.

    But chic bags aside, let us pause to acknowledge the most critical thing here: they look Just. Like. Meryl . Seriously! They're spitting images of Streep circa Kramer vs. Kramer .

    Which, yeah, means they are freaking stunning.

    Needless to say, the three gorgeous Gummer girls each have their own things going on. They're more than just the daughters of one of the most talented actresses to ever step foot onto a movie set. They're all talented and accomplished in their own rights.

    Mamie is an actress who starred on Emily Owens, M.D. as the title character. She's also made appearances on The Good Wife and The Big C .
