Hurricane Harvey Relief: Which Celebrities Donated?

Hurricane Harvey was a Category 4 storm when it first made landfall in Texas.

We have all seen the photos of the flooding. We've seen highways that have flooded so high that the water above them has waves.

We've seen people standing on rooftops, people riding boats between houses, and heard the horrifying stories of people who were swept away by the water.

Celebrities have heard this, too, and they have been using their considerable platforms and their own personal resources to help with the relief effort.

As climate change continues to destabilize what were once more temperate weather patterns, these "500 year storms" will be coming more and more frequently.

Many believe that we need a better coordinate governmental response when these disasters strike. It's good to hear stories of private citizens acting as heroes, but it's better if they never have to.

In the mean time, however, boat owners have been taking time off of work and traveling with their boats towards Texas where they hope to help distribute supplies and reach people who are still stranded.

Celebrities are donating money to the relief effort, but some stars are doing even more.

1. JJ Watt

Camila Cabello Proves She’s Doing Just Fine Without Fifth Harmony With THIS Performance Of Bad Things On Ellen!

Camila Cabello is doing just fine without Fifth Harmony!

On Monday, the X Factor alum cemented her single artist status by taking to the stage at The Ellen DeGeneres Show to perform her hit, Bad Things, with Machine Gun Kelly. This appearance marks the It-girl's first TV performance since leaving the beloved girl group back in December.

Now this collaboration with the up-and-comer dropped back in November, but it's the first time she's performed it while not a member of 5H. Time certainly flies, doesn't it?

Not to mention, Cabello's stop by DeGeneres' show comes only a handful of weeks after her former bandmates tried to shade her at the People's Choice Awards by leaving out her lyric from their single, Work From Home. Nonetheless, it seems like Camila is doing much better now that she's a solo act... it probably helps 5H isn't doing great these days!

This May Be Our Favorite Kanye West Rant of All-Time

It's been way too long since we've had ourselves a classic Kanye West rant, hasn't it?

Fortunately, the rapper taped an appearance on Ellen this week and came through with crazy, shining colors for us.

Big time.

It all started when the host asked Kanye why he didn't reach out to Mark Zuckerberg via Facebook, instead of publicly asking the billionaire to help him with his $53 million debt.

"I understand Mark Zukerberg doesn't use Twitter, even though I have had dinner with him and his wife and told them about how I wanted to help the world, and he said he'd help me, and blah blah blah," Mr. Kim Kardashian replied.

"That's how it feels, though, it's like the pursuit of happiness, it's like you're trying to sell that bone density machine, you know in that movie...." 

Yes, that's a reference to the Will Smith movie The Pursuit of Happyness.

But Kanye was only just getting started.

"I feel like if I had more resources, I could help more people," he explained.

"I have ideas that could make the human race's existence within our country better. Period. The paparazzi, whatever perception you have of me, starting with the truth, started with what everyone's thinking, start there, put some dope sh-t with it."

Okay then. We guess. Go on, Kanye...

"I care about people. My dad lived in homeless shelters less than five years ago, to find out...he's a psych major.

"My mom was the first black female chair of the English department of the Chicago State University. I was raised to do something, to make a difference."

For this reason, West says he took the 2016 #OscarsSoWhite campaign very, very seriously.

"I didn't take the Oscars as a joke. You know, 'All black actors can talk about the glass ceilings we've dealt with, talk about how many times you've been blocked from being able to excel.'

"It ain't no joke."

Kanye went on to say that he's the only celebrity still alive who can actually have a cultural impact.

"Picasso is dead, Steve Jobs is dead, Disney is dead. Name someone living that you can name in the same breath as them.

"We're one race, the human race, we're a blip in the existence of the universe and we're constantly trying to pull each other down. It's like I'm shaking talking about it, I feel I can make a difference while I'm here, I feel I can make a difference through my skill set."

After stating he has a condition called "synaesthesia," which means he can see sound, Kanye concluded with a story:

"I'm sitting with [President] Obama, and Leo [DiCaprio]'s talking about the environment, and I'm talking about clothes, and everyone looks at me like, that's not an important issue.

"But I remember going to school in fifth grade and wanting to have a cool outfit. I want to take away bullying."

The crowd gave Kanye a standing ovation by the end of his rant.

How can you not?!? Check out the whole thing now:

Ellen Pranks The Hell Out of Chris Evans & Elizabeth Olsen! [VIDEO]

Captain America: Civil War is good and all, but we’re not going to talk about that.

The movie’s stars, Chris Evans and Elizabeth Olsen, just paid Ellen DeGeneres a visit, and let’s just say that old habits [and pranks] never die.

Evans scared the living daylights out of Elizabeth after telling her that some free QVC products were in the bathroom. Turns out, only the 34-year-old was in there, who frightened and made her scream wildly!

“I remembered it afterwards. I was like, ‘Well, when Scarlett was on last year for Avengers, he scared her. Why didn’t I think of that?” Olsen says.

However, even Chris was surprised when an Iron Man-clad man was hiding between their couches and suddenly popped up. Hilarious!

Ariel Winter Talks Breast Reduction, Estranged Mom On “Ellen”

At such a young age, the actress has been through a lot of issues already.

Modern Family‘ star Ariel Winter paid Ellen DeGeneres a visit to talk about some pretty personal stuff, such as her recent emancipation from mom Chrystal Workman, due to physical and emotional abuse.

“From 14-17 [years old] it was a legal custody battle. My sister was granted temporary custody first and then when I was 17 in the beginning of the year she was granted permanent custody,” the actress says of her sister Shanelle Workman.

As for her breast reduction surgery, the 18-year-old shares that she only did what she had to do.

Ariel Winter and Chrystal Workman

An empowered Winter states, “[It] was already very hard to grow up in front of the public and also have your body changing, and then go through a surgery, which I decided to make public because I thought it was very important to talk to women about it in general, because i know there are so many people who have been in my position who needed the surgery.”

Way to go, girl!

Kim Kardashian Nude Selfie: 8 Celebrity Copycats!

Kim Kardashian's latest nude selfie may not have broken the internet, but days later people sure are still talking about it.

Some have poked fun (Bette Midler, Piers Morgan), others were critical (Pink, Chloe Moretz) and still others have come to her defense (Miley Cyrus, Amber Rose).

But many celebrities took it a step further and posted their own naked-with-bars-over-the-goodies selfies.

Thank you, Kim Kardashian for inspiring all this luscious nakedness.

1. Sharon Osbourne

2. Ellen DeGeneres

3. Courtney Stodden

A Courtney Stodden nude selfie is truly nothing new, but this time she incorporated Kim's signature black censor bars. "Working on a new single! It's coming out soon... Oh & I can't find anything to wear either, Kim! #girlproblems #kimkardashian," she wrote in the caption. Wait, she's a musician?

4. Danny Tamberelli

Kelly Clarkson Talks About Her ‘Idol’ Breakdown!

Kelly Clarkson sure is one heck of a performer.

The first American Idol winner just paid Ellen DeGeneres a visit, a week after her emotional and amazing stripped-down performance of her latest single, “Piece By Piece,” on the last week’s episode of the talent search.

“I came off almost in tears for a different reason because I was so embarrassed. I was like “Oh God this is my final thing on Idol and I could not hold it together,” the 33-year-old singer gushes.

Kelly Clarkson on The Ellen Show

Referring to the song itself, she says “…the song is incredibly sad … It’s just incredibly… it’s sad, but hopeful.. cause a lot of us we didn’t have a bar to set as far as finding love and relationships. Or friendships in any form.”

We are so glad that Kelly’s in a better place now.

Live Like the Celebrities in These Beautiful Homes

There is no questioning the fact that celebrities get to live in the most beautiful homes that are out there. Whatever the need or preference, the money and position that famous individuals have allow them to be able to live lives surrounded in luxury the rest of the population only gets to dream about.

The celebrities might pay a pretty hefty price tag for the awe inspiring homes they do have, but it doesn’t mean you can’t live like them, at least in part. Here are some of the most extravagant celebrity homes that are out there. Once you see these, you’ll be inspired to make your own home resemble the pieces of heaven that each of these houses feature.

Ellen and Portia’s Perfect Blend

There isn’t anything not to like about Ellen Degeneres and her supermodel wife Portia de Rossi. Their home in Beverly Hills features an open concept flow with cool color palettes and beautiful, rich beams mounted across the ceiling.

It’s clean and feels classy, country, modern, and chic all at the same time. It seems like only Ellen and Portia could really pull that off. If you want to achieve the same feel, stick to a bright, open concept and channel your inner country-mod goddess.

Get Spicy With Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon’s place feels much different than Ellen and Portia’s place. The view from outside feels rather Spanish Countryside. The inside is also chic and clean, but features much spicier punches of color in the kitchen.

The grand staircase is the statement of the house as it leads upstairs to an open loft area. The wood just screams rustic bliss and elegance. If you love comfortable, warm sophistication, this is the house to model your dreams after.

Get Southern with Katherine Heigl

Change directions a bit and head to the south to look at Katherine Heigl’s home which is actually located in California, but looks like it belongs somewhere in Georgia. Everything about it feels southern inspired, but put in modern times. For example, everything in the kitchen is stainless steel, but from the open design and large windows, to the double doors and area rugs the whole essence is southern classic.

It’s really very cool how all the celebrities take what they enjoy out of each era and mix and match to get exactly what they want in a home. Sometimes it’s colonial, sometimes it’s french countryside, sometimes it’s completely modern. The nice thing is that it’s your home so you get to decide. There isn’t any right or wrong way to do things.

Make Your Own Celebrity Status Home

The awesome thing is that you don’t have to be a celebrity to have a home that looks like one of theirs. Everything will depend on the budget you have, but no matter the amount of money you have, you can make something magical happen.

If you can afford it, have a designer come in to show you the best way to get everything that you want in a home. Be inspired by what the celebrities are doing and make it happen in your own home in a way that suits your style. If you don’t have the money, increase your skillsets in the DIY department.

Round up friends who are skilled at various things and trade labor for labor and skill for skill. Don’t be afraid to unleash your creative side. Everyone deserves a home that emulates who they are as a person. Don’t just watch the celebrities live. Live like the celebrities in the ways that you can.

UPDATE: Kylie Jenner & Tyga Are STILL Together!

From the wise words of Kylie Jenner, “everyone needs to chill.”

So… the reality sensation just visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show studios and set the record straight about her relationship status.

“No honestly people have it all wrong. No. We’re not broken up,” Kylie amusingly dismisses.

She continues, “We, just honestly, we became best friends before anything happened so I think that that’s awesome. And we’re just like. I don’t know. Hanging out. Living life.”

What happened with the break? It may or may not have occurred, but it was shut down quickly the second they were spotted holding hands at the American Music Awards after-party.

Honestly, this just SOOO confusing.

 

More Kylie and Tyga!

‘Finding Dory’ First Teaser Trailer Has Finally Been Released! [WATCH]

From the wonderful world of Disney/Pixar comes the second, highly-anticipated installment chronicling the underwater adventures of Dory, Marlin and Nemo. But this time, it’s Dory who’s hopelessly lost.

Pixar has released the first official teaser trailer for the movie, 13 years after the original Oscar-winning movie premiered. In the trailer, Dory is seen “sleep-swimming” and remembering certain “important” events from her past. It looks like she’ll go on a dangerous mission to reunite with her family, who must be out there somewhere! Somewhere, beyond the sea…

The trailer calls her journey one “she probably won’t remember.” But all the famous faces are back. Ellen DeGeneres returns as the happy yet forgetful Dory, and both Marlin and Nemo will return to help her along her quest.

The trailer appeared on the Youtube page for The Ellen Show, but aside from this trailer’s release, there’s not much else we know about this film for now.

Finding Dory will be released in June 2016, and July 2016 in the UK.

Meet Karla Kardashian, The Newest Reality Star Courtesy of Ellen DeGeneres

I know what you’re thinking: of course, the world definitely needs a new Kardashian sister! Well, never fear, because Ellen DeGeneres has you covered.

Karla Kardashian, the most embarrassing Kardashian sister who has been kept well hidden until now, visited the set of the Ellen Show to introduce herself and to announce that she’s the newest cast member of the long-running reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Because she’s the “newest” sister, she admits that she’s often given hand-me-downs from her sisters, like her New Balance sneakers tucked into her stirrup tights. But the resemblance is uncanny: Karla is definitely related to the Kardashians with her ample chest and backside area, as well as her impeccable fashion sense. Not to mention her “double K” name, which matches her “double K” bra size.

Karla debuted the trailer for the newest season of KUWTK, and it looks like she’s going to add some spice to what is otherwise a tame and somewhat boring show. The newest addition is excellent timing, since the outrageous antics of Scott Disick will now be conspicuously absent.

To summarize, Karla Kardashian is a breath of fresh air and a welcome addition to America’s royal family. And we’re just left wondering, why did it take so long for her family to welcome her? She seems swell to us.

This Six-Year-Old Can Teach You A Lot About The World [WATCH]

What happens when your six-year-old daughter schools you on kindness, respect and the state of the world we live in?

Probably, you end up with a viral video.

That’s what happened to Cherish Sherry, when she uploaded a video to her Facebook of her six-year-old daughter Tiana telling her mom that the world would be a better place if only people were nice to each other and “smiled” all the time!

The three-minute video shows little Tiana sitting on her stairs, talking to her mother about how all she wants in the world is for her parents, who are divorced, to be “friends.” But for all the wisdom little Tiana shows, she seems a lot older. And already, there are people who are endorsing her for president in 2016 (hey, that’s not a bad idea…).

Sherry captioned the video with a little bit of backstory about why Tiana felt passionate enough to recite a heartfelt speech about kindness and love. Apparently, Sherry and her ex-husband got into a tiff about an overturned shoe rack, and Tiana was fed up with her divorced parents fighting.

Read the caption, watch the video, and be schooled:

After came back from badminton I Open the garage door try to drive my car in and heard Tiana voice yelling “stopped mama”!!
my shoe rack fallen down in the garage all over 50 pairs of shoes and the rack are on the ground.
I get out of the car walk into the garage And Alfred came out yelling to me that my shoes rack was suck!! Complaining I bought a cheap shoes racks good for nothing!on and on..And I told him to just move get out of the way if he doesn’t want to help then go away!as I get upset so didn’t make it sound nice and friendly. 

Tiana offered to help me put up shoes on the rack That I rebuilt after all it done I am going to move the car in but Alfred offered help to tight up some lopes to help stabilized while he do that……

Tiana said in front of both of us,

Why you guys don’t try to be nice to each other… Like a friends helping each other don’t get mad and be happy!! Lots more

I was stunned by it! She is teaching me!!

Woke me up!!!

And then we sit down only me and Tiana
And this is part of it as didn’t think she could think like that!! She brought me tear and feel guilty

Amazing little girl Her name is TIANA!!

Amazing, indeed! Cherish Sherry has since shared the video again on her Facebook page, and she tagged Ellen DeGeneres in an effort to get the attention of the comedian. I’m sure we’ll be seeing Tiana on Ellen shortly, as well as hearing her other motivational, wisdom-filled monologues! This is definitely one special little girl!

10 Magazine Covers That Changed The World

National Geographic

If you want to bring attention to an issue or cause affecting our community, the most effective way is to “break the internet.” Magazines specifically have been the catalyst for this new trend, using their advertising power and publicity to make statements on our society. These magazine covers hugely influenced culture, inspiring questions and discussions about a myriad of issues like race, feminism, LGBTQ+ rights, war, poverty, and more.

Here’s a look at ten of the most iconic magazine covers that have created waves in our culture, and challenged our thoughts in the most innovative way.

1. Bill Cosby’s alleged victims, New York Magazine

This 2015 cover of New York Magazine is one of the most powerful magazine covers of the year. 35 of the 46 women who are Bill Cosby’s alleged rape victims sit side by side dressed in black, creating a striking and memorable image that tackles the issues of rape head on. What’s so powerful about this cover is that it places issues of sexual assault at the forefront, giving voices to the women who have been silenced and shamed for decades, and telling them they have power. It represents an issue in our society that needs to be changed.

2. Ellen Degeneres, Time Magazine

Back in 1997, this cover of Time magazine was one of their most shocking to date, as Ellen DeGeneres exclusively came out to the world. The cover was the first time that a popular entertainer had come out in such a public fashion, and influenced many who would later on use magazines as a platform to inspire others with their stories, from Lance Bass to Ricky Martin.

Coming out on a magazine cover in the late 90s was a much bigger deal than it is now. Coming out in such a public fashion pushed gay issues at the center of culture, forcing many to rethink prejudices and to become involved in a dialogue many didn’t fully understand.

3. Angela Lansbury, The Gentlewoman

In an industry obsessed with youth, especially regarding women, this refreshing cover featuring legendary actress Angela Lansbury provided an alternative look at publications that choose to represent women of various ages. The powder pink cover and Lansbury’s straight-on gaze provided a playful touch, showcasing a magazine cover that wasn’t for the male gaze, and offered an alternative look at a women’s magazine. It’s an incredibly powerful cover.

4. Caitlyn Jenner, Vanity Fair

Caitlyn Jenner’s cover of Vanity Fair proved that magazines still have the power to shock the masses, and that’s exactly what Vanity Fair did when unveiling Caitlyn to the world. Referencing the infamous Marilyn Monroe, this cover was trailblazing for the transsexual community, opening them up to a larger public presence than ever before.

5. Are you mom enough?, Time Magazine

This cover created a lot of controversy when it was released in 2012, with the topic of “attachment parenting” and what age it’s acceptable to continue breastfeeding your child. The photo, which featured 26-year-old Jamie Lynne Grumet nursing her 3-year-old son, is still debated today, as breastfeeding remains a touchy topic for many. [...]

Ellen DeGeneres Appeals To New Generation With Empowering Speech At Teen Choice Awards [WATCH]

There’s somewhat of a celebrity tradition to give big, important, inspirational speeches at the Teen Choice Awards. Readers will remember Ashton Kutcher’s now-iconic speech at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards in which he told the young, impressionable crowd to “build a life” they want. The Teen Choice Awards are all about the younger crowd: those who listen to Little Mix, Fifth Harmony, One Direction, and who watch Girl Meets World and Pretty Little Liars, all things that are waaaay over my own head. That’s why it’s so special when established celebrities take it upon themselves to dish out some serious wisdom.

This year, it was Ellen DeGeneres who took home the surfboard-shaped award for Choice Comedian. At the Teen Choice Awards, the fact that a 57-year-old gay comedian is still relevant and still so loved by today’s youth speaks volumes about the world we live in. It shows that teenagers are more mature than they’re given credit for, that they’re more aware of social issues and progressive change, and that they’re connected to broader popular culture, the culture that goes beyond Nickelodeon and the Disney Channel.

Ellen took the stage and it was with pride that she spoke about her own life experience, albeit in broad terms, and took the opportunity to make every teenager and young person in the audience more comfortable with their insecure adolescent years. She said:

“It feels good to be chosen, but there was a time in my life that I was not chosen. I was the opposite of chosen because I was different. And I think I want to make sure that everyone knows that what makes you different right now makes you stand out later in life. So you should be proud of being different.”

Spoken to a hall full of teenagers and young people, those words have a powerful impact, and not least because they’re spoken by someone who underwent massive emotional upheaval and fear of backlash by coming out in the public eye. Ellen’s acceptance by teenage culture marks a significant moment for LGBTQ people, especially considering she wished her wife, Portia De Rossi, a happy anniversary from the stage (and who blew Ellen a kiss).

But Ellen’s speech goes beyond LGBTQ rights and goes straight to the heart of what it means to be a teenager, and a human. Teenagers are frightened of standing out and being different, while adults relish it. Ellen’s words shine a light for teenagers to follow, by intimating that “it gets better.” She’s the living, breathing, dancing example of that.

Choosing Ellen over her other nominees, Jimmy Fallon, Kevin Hart, Jimmy Kimmel, George Lopez, and Amy Schumer, was definitely the right choice.

Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi Renew Vows to Save Marriage

Just seven months since Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi celebrated 10 years together, reports are coming in (again) that the couple is having trouble.

But rather than calling it quits, Ellen and Portia are renewing their vows to save their marriage.

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi at the People's Choice Awards

According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, Ellen and Portia have been teetering on the edge of divorce for more than a year now.  They’ve even worked out separate living arrangements.

The couple’s fighting has increased exponentially since Portia accused Ellen of sleeping with her close friend Tatum O’Neal.

Ellen and Tatum are BFF, and, for a while, Portia didn’t think much of it.  But, in an interview, Tatum claimed she has started dating only women.

Hearing that Tatum is dating women, Portia got uber jealous of Ellen and Tatum's friendship.

The practice of renewing wedding vows is common among troubled couples.  It looks like Ellen and Portia are buying into the vow renewal as a way of saving their relationship.

Plus, with the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage, it’s perfect timing to say “I do, again.”

Since the ruling, Ellen has gotten a ton of emails and tweets thanking her and Portia for paving the way for gay marriage to be recognized nationwide,” a source told Radar Online.

“She knows that getting re-married in Louisiana, which has always been a very anti-gay state, would be rubbing it in to some people, but she does not care.”

Some are surprised that Ellen and Portia haven’t divorced already.  And renewing their vows is just patching the wound.

Ellen and Portia have been a pillar in the journey toward marriage equality, as exemplified by Ellen's statement to a bigoted pastor.  We hope things work out for them.

34 Stars Who are Extra Happy Gay Marriage is Legal

Many in Hollywood got the celebration started on June 26, 2015, the day on which the Supreme Court legalized gay marriage nationwide.

We've heard from numerous stars regarding the decision, all elated over this historic 5-4 decision.

But the following actors, actresses, athletes and singers likely pumped their fists just a bit harder than everyone else in Tinseltown.

That's because they've been out of the closet for awhile now, and it's hard to believe this decision doesn't hit a little bit closer to home for them...

This much is certain: Jennifer Lopez is set to begin a residency in Las Vegas next year.

But this is less certain apparently: she may be dating Casper Smart once again. Kind of. Sort of. The two are certainly having sexual intercourse at least.

"Have you ever been at a point in your life where you don't know?" Lopez asked Ellen when the topic of her status with Smart came up.

"Like you're not sure about things? Well, that's all. I am not sure about anything."

Lopez added that she's "having fun" and doing "whatever I feel like doing" with Smart. Why?

Because "I'm a grown woman," she explained.

Preach on, sister!

This song has literally been stuck in our heads all day.

Hilary Duff is primed to take over the world with her latest single Sparks, and she shows no intentions of stopping anytime soon.

That's because in addition to debuting her Tinder date music video on Thursday, she also did a live performance of the song on Ellen!

While the dance moves in the live version are just as cheesy as the ones in the video, the chorus and whistled hook are just as catchy!

Plus, we love how she manages to look casual yet extremely put together, like, all the time.
