  • Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina Will Not Be Featured on Family Reality Show

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 1 hr ago

    TMZ reported Wednesday that, " Bobby's 2 sisters, brother and their kids are shooting the show about their lives, and part of it will chronicle Bobbi Kristina fighting for her life."

    But in a statement to The Insider With Yahoo , Brown's lawyer balsted the "irresponsible" report: "Yet again, TMZ has chosen to engage in false news reporting. There is no Brown family reality show that is in production which chronicles Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina or the medical emergency she presently faces at Emory Hospital. These reports are irresponsible and Warner Brothers as the owner of TMZ, should be ashamed to publish such nonsense, particularly one day before Bobbi Kristina's birthday. Bobbi Kristina and Bobby Brown are dealing with enough right now. The fact that TMZ/Warner Brothers has decided to inject negativity into their lives at this critical time is plain insanity."

    Bobbi Kristina remains on life support after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub on Jan. 31.

    Bobbi Kristina, the only daughter of Whitney Houston, turns 22 tomorrow.

  • Leonard Nimoy's Other Legacy: His Photography and the Controversy It Caused

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 1 hr ago

    Though he was best known as the hyper-rational Spock, Leonard Nimoy, who died of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease last week at 83, enjoyed a thriving second act outside of Hollywood. Specifically, the Star Trek icon became a notable photographer, producing several collections of provocative images that highlighted subjects who are often marginalized by society due to characteristics such as weight, sexuality, and religion. Not surprisingly, Nimoy's exploration of that last subject sparked controversy — controversy that did not go unremarked when he died.

    Titled Shekhina , it consisted of (semi) erotic photos of Jewish women in various states of undress, partially clad in male religious garb. The pictures proved to be polarizing even within the Jewish community that Nimoy loved so much. While some took issue with the women being naked or depicted in men's clothing (or both), others praised Nimoy's creative vision.

  • Another Cosby Accuser Comes Forward, Recounts the Star's Odd Demands

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 1 hr ago

    Another woman has stepped forward in the ever-growing allegations that Bill Cosby serially assaulted numerous women, and the details in this story are exceptionally bizarre.

    The woman, who identified herself only as "Patricia" so she could avoid what she called "the media circus," divulged to Buzzfeed that the comedian not only raped her, but that he also asked her to do strange things, like tie her hair up like Queen Noor of Jordan and walk around with oatmeal on her face. He also gave her a gym membership and demanded that she lose weight.

    "Patricia," who is now 58 and lives in California, told the site that this began when Cosby promised to mentor her after she thanked him for speaking at an event at the University of Massachussetts. Unfortunately, that's not quite what happened. He later invited her to dinner with him and his wife in 1978 (so she was 20 or 21 at the time), but when she showed up, he was the only person there, which was a clear indicator something was off.

  • Hilary Duff: 'I Don't Know If People Are Meant to Be Together Forever'

    Even in divorce, Hilary Duff's marriage to Mike Comrie has been pretty picturesque. But that doesn't mean it has been easy behind the scenes.

    Duff, 27, reveals in a new Cosmo interview that the experience has left her questioning marriage. The star of the upcoming TV Land show Younger filed for divorce last month after four-and-a-half years of marriage, including one year of separation, in which she and Comrie vacationed together with their almost 3-year-old son, Luca, and were seen getting cozy in public.

  • Bruce Jenner Heads for the Hills

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 3 hrs ago

    Bruce Jenner bought some new digs, perched atop a mountain in Malibu, for $3.5 million.

    Anyone with even a passing knowledge of Keeping Up With the Kardashians could see that Jenner was always far less comfortable with the cameras following him around 24/7 than the other members of his family, but that it was something he went along with for the sake of the clan he loves and supports. After separating from Kris Jenner in 2013, he rented a home in Malibu. Now, under intense media scrutiny following his reported gender reassignment and a car crash that resulted in the death of his neighbor, Jenner has moved to an even more secluded area of Malibu.

    Per the property's listing, which has since been pulled offline, the home has a three-car garage (relatively small for a racing enthusiast like Jenner), heated floors, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, and, of course, a pool and spa.

     

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

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 4 hrs 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.

  • Carrie Underwood Gives Birth to a Baby Boy

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 4 hrs ago

    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 6 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:

    You can read the entire speech at The Oxford Tab.

  • Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga Bond on Twitter

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 19 hrs ago

    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! ❤️💋
