Jennifer Lawrence Visits Children’s Hospital on Christmas, Remains Awesome

Lots of people say they’re gonna perform some sort of charity or volunteer work during the holidays, but all too often the obligations of the season get in the way.

Which is why it’s all the more impressive when someone with as much on her plate as Jennifer Lawrence takes time out of her busy schedule to make the season brighter for those less fortunate.

Lawrence stopped by the Norton’s Children’s Hospital in her native Kentucky on Christmas Eve to spread some cheer and pose for photos with staff and patients.

It’s the fifth consecutive year that Jen has stopped by the hospital during the holiday season.

While many celebs would no doubt take to social media to inform the world of their magnanimity, Jen has made no public mention of her selfless act. 

In fact, were it not for an Instagram post from hospital staff, we might never have learned of her visit!

The photo below appeared online on Christmas Eve, along with the following caption:

“Louisville’s own Jennifer Lawrence stopped by Norton Children’s Hospital today to visit with patients, families, and staff,” the hospital shared on their Instagram page on Sunday.

“This visit has become a tradition for Lawrence each Christmas. Thank you, Jennifer! You sure do bring a smile to all!”

And, of course, Jen is generous with more than just her time.

Last year, she donated $ 2 million to the medical center.

Shortly thereafter, she announced the establishment of the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation Cardiac Intensive Care Unit.

Sure, stuff like this will never grab as many headlines as the rumors that Lawrence is dating Brad Pitt (she’s not, by the way), but this is the sort of thing Jen will be remembered for long after her popularity at the box office has declined.

(Not that that will be happening anytime soon.)

The impact that Lawrence has had on the young people she visits and their families is immeasurable.

Add to that the fact that there’s no telling how many millions of fans might be inspired by her stellar example and perform some of their own acts of kindness, and you start to get an idea of just how awesome Jen truly is.

We hear she’s not too shabby as an actress, either!

Ocean’s 8 Trailer: It’s Here. And It’s Awesome.

Women are having a moment in Hollywood.

They wish they weren't, of course, because this moment is sadly based on the fact that so many have been mistreated and harassed by so many men across the entertainment industry.

But at least the perpetrators of these horrific acts are finally being outed and brought to some kind of justice.

Next summer, meanwhile, women will have a different kind of moment in Hollywood.

It will be far more entertaining and lucrative and, simply based on the trailer below, totally and completely awesome/

Indeed, the first preview for Ocean's 8 has arrived, as Sandra Bullock leads an All-Star cast of actresses in a version of the Ocean's 11 franchise that was led by George Clooney and Brad Pitt.

In this case, Bullock takes on the role of Debbie Ocean, the sister of Clooney's Danny.

There's a hint in the trailer that Danny may be dead, but the focus thankfully isn't on those past films… but on the updated installment and its ridiculously terrific array of stars.

There's Cate Blanchett, who will serve as Bullock's sidekick.

There's Mindy Kaling, who will play a jewelry forger.

There's Rihanna as a computer hacker… and Helena Bonham Carter as a fashion designer.

Sarah Paulson is also on board as a housewife who gets dragged back into a life of crime.

The Ocean's franchise, of course, is all about pulling off elaborate heists — and Ocean's 8 has quite the event in mind:

Bullock and her team will plot to steal a VERY expensive necklace off the person of Anne Hathaway at the annual MET Gala in New York City, which means we're in for cameos from Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift and others.

Just as there was for the all-female version of Ghostbusters, stupid backlash has already started against Ocean's 8.

Fortunately, Bullock always knew there would be and she isn't going to let it get her down.

"There should be a rule, you're not allowed to say anything nasty until after it comes out," she told Entertainment Weekly. "Obviously, that's never going to happen."

Sad, but true.

Ocean's 8 comes out on June 8, 2018.

Check out the trailer now!

Sia Releases Nude Photo For Awesome Reason

If you’re familiar with singer Sia’s craeer and public persona, then you’re probably aware that the 41-year-old Aussie doesn’t exactly court the spotlight.

Quite the reverse, in fact, as she routinely conceals her face with outlandish wigs or paper bags when appearing in public.

But while Sia may prefer to remain hidden and keep the focus on her music, she proved today that she’s willing to bare all in order to thwart criminals who seek to profit from invading her privacy.

It seems Sia caught wind of the fact that a secretive group was looking to sell several illicit photos taken by paparazzi while she was in a private residence.

Rather than allow these bastards to cash in on their crimes, she undercut their efforts by posting the images online for free.

“Someone is apparently trying to sell naked photos of me to my fans. Save your money, here it is for free. Everyday is Christmas!” Sia tweeted along with a link to the images.

Obviously, Sia shouldn’t have had to take such drastic actions, but this is certainly a masterclass in turning a negative into a positive!

She even snuck in a plug for her forthcoming holiday album, Everyday Is Christmas.

Sia handled the situation like a boss, but for many, the story is bringing to mind other instances in which public figures saw their privacy invaded by hackers in the most appalling fashion imaginable, the most notable of which may have been the so-called “Fappening” that took place in 2014.

Once again, the issue here is about consent.

Sia has posted nude photos in the past, but she did so of her own volition.

This time, her hand was forced, which makes what happened to her nothing less than a sex crime.

Astonishingly, in 2017 there are grown adults who believe that if a public figure has posted nude photos in the past, they’re now considered fair game, and anyone in possession of additional explicit images can post them with impunity.

This makes about as much sense as arguing that because a woman has had sex before, she can’t be raped.

Sexual assault in Hollywood has been in the news a lot lately, with many brave souls coming forward with shocking stories of abuse.

It’s important to bear in mind that being publicly exposed against one’s will can be a traumatizing experience that takes a lifelong toll on the victim–and the perpetrators of such misdeeds are criminals who must be brought to justice, just the same as Harvey Weinstein and his ilk.

Debra Danielsen: I’ll Have an Awesome Wedding WITHOUT Farrah Abraham!

Farrah Abraham is having quite an eventful week, even by Farrah Abraham standards.

Things got off to a weird start on Tuesday, when Farrah was fired by MTV as a result of her decision to continue working in the sex industry.

Or so she claimed.

While it’s true that Farrah has been masturbating in front of her webcam for cash, there are conflicting reports about why she was let go by the network that made her famous.

In fact, at this point, it’s not even clear if MTV actually fired her at all.

If the situation sounds confusing, it is.

After claiming she’d been canned by MTV parent company Viacom, Farrah retracted her statement and she had “not been let go.”

Of course, this news was conveyed in one of those  nonsensical word salad videos Farrah is so well known for, so it’s incredibly difficult to figure out what she’s trying to say:

The celebrity gossip world has been abuzz with the latest developments in Farrah’s life, and media outlets have reached out to the members of her ever-shrinking inner circle in an effort to figure out what the hell is going on.

Unfortunately, Farrah’s mother, Debra Danielsen, appears to be just as clueless as the rest of us.

Danielsen is getting married this month, and Farrah has made it clear that she will not be attending the ceremony.

She says it’s because she doesn’t approve of the guy her mom is marrying, but we think it’s really because Farrah can’t stand the thought of someone else being the center of attention for an entire afternoon.

So Deb doesn’t have much in the way of new information on whether or not Farrah is now unemployed.

But she has plenty to say about her own upcoming nuptials!

“We’re still going to have a kick-ass wedding and cool celebration,” Danielsen recently told Radar Online.

“We’re going to have henna tattoos. It’s going to be a fun, fantasy wedding instead of anything traditional.”

In typical “mom named Deb” fashion, Danielsen went on to offer way more information about the reception than anyone wanted or needed:

“I’ve had to hire a new caterer and DJ,” she said.

“My rappers left me high and dry. No matter how many times you’ve been married it’s nerve-racking. We’re all nervous.”

Until now, Deb’s actually been relatively tight-lipped (by her standards) about the big day.

“Right now they’re not participating in the wedding,” she told Radar bluntly when asked about Farrah and Sophia’s involvement.

“They’re not coming to the wedding.”

Maybe if she knew there’s gonna be rappers, she’d reconsider.

Kim Kardashian: Planned Parenthood is Awesome, People!

Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian will arrive at an important conclusion this Sunday night.

On the next episode of their family's reality show, the sisters will visit a Los Angeles-based Planned Parenthood and come to the realization that the organization actually does a lot of good.

Contrary to what some politicians or people may tell you.

"The perception of Planned Parenthood is that it's like this abortion clinic, that's nothing like what it's like," Kim explains in the following footage, adding:

"Hearing that firsthand really made it real for me."

It's true.

Not only does Planned Parenthood help women with MANY health issues, but it does not take government funding for abortions.

Just stating some facts here.

One of the stories the soon-to-be-VERY-rich siblings heard came from a woman named Kelly, who said she and her boyfriend chose to get tested there after having unprotected sex.

Within 15 minutes of getting their finger pricked, the couple learned they were both HIV positive. Scary stuff.

"Planned Parenthood, they were compassionate and understanding and they told me you know you're life isn't over. This is manageable," Kelly said.

"You can live a normal life with this. Planned Parenthood basically kept me alive."

This certainly isn't the sort of serious topic Keeping Up with the Kardashians takes on.

But good for the show for doing so.

The trip left Khloe especially altered when it came to her thoughts towards the organization, which has become a hot button topic for conservatives.

Many politicians on that side of the aisle want to cut off funding to it entirely.

"I'm a big fan of Planned Parenthood now," Khloe says below.

"Meeting all the girls and hearing their stories and seeing how many women have been helped by some of the services they have to offer.

"I think people need to be more educated before they form opinions and that's what I'm grateful that I had the opportunity to do today."
