Jay Z has 99 problems, but dealing with a monster-in-law isn't one of 'em!
On Friday, Dec. 4, Beyonce's hubby celebrated his 46th birthday and her mom Tina Knowles showed him some major love on Instagram with a heartfelt post that expressed exactly how she feels about her rap mogul son-in-law, US Weekly reports.
"Happy Birthday to my handsome, brilliant, loving son. The son i never had, but I have now. I love you Mama," the post read.
Apparently, Tina had second thoughts about sending her son-in-law public B-day wishes because the post has since been deleted. Meanwhile, the latest pictures on Beyonce's Instagram were shared a week ago and show the singer and Jay Z dressed in their finest formal fashions.
Everyone knows the Knowles-Carter clan hosts some of the most poppin' birthday bashes, so we're positive the family turnup for Jay's big day was too real. Last year, Bey threw her mother Tina's sexy masquerade party, and the singer and Jay spent his 45th birthday in Iceland, where they reportedly chilled in a lava field and flew over an active volcano.
It's understandable if Bey and Jay prefer to keep some of their special family moments all to themselves, but we'd be lying if we said we weren't looking forward to seeing some Insta-worthy pics of the celebration.
We just can't with how sad this ais. Former Disney star Tiffany Thornton just lost her husband of five years, Chris Carney, to a car accident, and now she's speaking out about it for the first time.
On Saturday, the 29-year-old Sonny With A Chance actress posted a heartbreaking message to Carney, along with a photo of him and their two children. The caption read, "My life. My love. My angel."
Chris tragically died in a car accident in Arkansas on Friday, along with another victim, Ezekiel Blanton.
Tiffany's co-star and friend, Demi Lovato, also opened up about Chris' sudden death. She tweeted a photo from the couple's wedding saying, "You're already missed. We love you."
This isn't the only tragedy Tiff's had to deal with lately, either. Her BFF just passed away last week. She was one of Tiffany and Chris' bridesmaids.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Tiffany and Chris' family at this time.
We're not exactly sure why anyone would request Siri's assistance in defining the word "bitch," but stranger things have happened, particularly when the Apple iPhone feature responds to the question.
Apparently, one of the definitions used to describe the term sums it up as "(black slang) a woman," Huffington Post reports. Clearly, the problem lies with the fact that the using the word in a derogatory manner towards women isn't a practice that's exclusive to one particular race. Making the feature's choice of definition even more baffling is the fact that Siri's catalogue is based on the Oxford American Dictionary, which doesn't make mention of the term "black slang."
Yeah, we're thoroughly confused and offended, too.
HuffPo cites a technical explanation for the way Siri works, which was provided by software expert Elliot Turner. The site also reports that Oxford University Press has yet to comment on the issue. But we honestly need more than some garbled tech response to explain how Apple allowed something so blatantly racist to slip through its cracks.
During Kylie Jenner and Tyga's very brief breakup, Kylie was spotted hanging out with A$AP Rocky, and of course, dating rumors started swirling. Before anyone could get too into the idea, though, Kylie and Tyga were totally back on and that was the end of that.
Now, they're still together, but seem to be giving each other much more space. Tyga reportedly moved out of Kylie's house and they're just taking more time as individuals.
This week, Kylie had a lot going on business-wise with the release of her hugely successful lip kit before jetting off to Art Basel in Miami, where she hung out with A$AP Rocky once again.
Tyga was not spotted at the event and it looks like Kylie went back to her room with her BFFs and we did spot ONE guy there with her in the Snapchat vidos, but it was Shamari, another one of her longtime BFFs.
We haven't seen or heard much from Rob Kardashian lately, but it seems that he's going for quality over quantity when it comes to his social media posts.
The few times he has posted on Instagram in the past few months have almost all been in support of his loved ones: a series of sweet pics for Kim Kardashian's birthday, a 'HBD' message for mom Kris Jenner, a picture of himself and Lamar Odom after Lamar was hospitalized with a message that he's praying "nonstop" for him, a pic of Khloe Kardashian's book cover, praising her for what she had done and now...this...
The dog, which he's referred to in previous posts as his "Godson," is posed in front of the comp, which just so happens to be on the shopping page for little sis Kylie Jenner's "Lip Kit By Kylie."
Even more awesome was the message Rob included with the post, " Thanksgiving photo (he was there for awhile and then went to a friend's house). But overall, Kris says, "He's doing alright, he's doing his best. He's not as into being on camera as much as the rest of us, but he's working on himself. He's gonna be OK..."
We wish Rob all the best and hope to see much more of him in the very near future.
Kylie Jenner's lip kit is already sold out, but when they get more in stock, we might just have another new must-have color.
The official Lip Kit By Kylie account shared this pic on Instagram of the trademark lips for the brand with the caption, "@vladamua#lipkitbykylie." Inspo for what? A new color, or just that pic?
Unfortunately, it looks like it's just inspo for the pic, and the talented artist who created the look has seen the articles about it and she's not too happy. "@graftobianmakeup
he inspo, she replied, "there a difference between 'created by' and 'inspired by', don't you think?"
Giving credit where credit is due, the artist has also created some other absolutely amazing looks, which she sometimes pairs with coordinating eye makeup art. And here's why we call it "art" and not just eye shadow:
Demi Lovato took to Instagram to mourn the loss of former Disney Channel co-star Tiffany Thornton's husband, Chris Carney, with a heartbreaking tribute. Chris died in a tragic car accident early Friday morning.
In in an emotional post accompanying a photo from Tiffany and Chris' wedding, Demi wrote: "Been trying to figure out what to say all day...This morning I woke up to terrible news. My good friend Chris Carney has passed away. This picture is a perfect example of the love he shared with Tiff and how much fun he was to be around. I've been to many weddings but this is by far the most memorable because the way they looked into each other's eyes and the love they had for one another. There were tons of laughs and tons of tears and I'll never forget the way he looked at her. It doesn't seem real and I'm still in shock.. Still speechless. I don't know how to put into words how heartbroken I am for Tiffany and their two baby boys. You're already missed Chris.. And Tiffany I love you so much.. I'm so unbelievably sorry... There are still no words. For those who would like to help the family at this time you can help support @tiffthornton and her precious babies KJ and Bentley by donating at https://gofund.me/4gdfn773?pc=tw_cr_n #RIPChrisCarney #prayfortiffany"
Demi's boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama, also posted a pic in Chris' memory, writing, in part: "I truly find it not real to be writing this.. It truly hurts for so many reasons. I took yesterday to process your passing Chris.. Mainly cause above all that you were, you were a real a surviver..."

I truly find it not real to be writing this.. It truly hurts for so many reasons. I took yesterday to process your passing Chris.. Mainly cause above all that you were, you were a real a surviver.. Someone that studied God's word, and became a soldier for his message.. You lived the life of a king no matter what the circumstances.. You would be there for ANYONE no matter WHAT..You had and will always have one of the most amazing, caring, patient and loving Queens (@tiffthornton) anyone could ever hope to be with.. She will raise the two beautiful boys you both share with the love and loyalty that you had for life.. And as a Godfather I will look after then and help them remember your spirit and heart. I love you Chris, I'll see you in our next round at living.. Ps. This pic makes me laugh, because of course you have to try to blow up a turkey every year.. #RIPChrisCarney
Khloe Kardashian was super excited to meet her new nephew on Saturday. She was the first family member who was spotted arriving at the hospital after Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their son, but the visit was bittersweet for the 31-year-old as Kim gave birth at the same hospital that Lamar Odom is currently recovering in.
"I know these hospital halls way too well. Hoping from one room to another," she tweeted during her visit. Lamar had been in ICU when he first arrived at Cedars-Sinai after being transferred from a hospital in Las Vegas. He's since been moved to a private room, although despite the rumors, everything isn't going as great as we'd hoped.
"He's here and he's alive, but to say it's not a long road and to say he's fully better is not the truth either," she told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show earlier this month. "He has a lot of work to do and a lot of communication therapy and having to learn to walk again and to talk again and you never know if he'll ever be the same again." She also encouraged people to keep praying, saying "the road is nowhere near over."
We can't even imagine the range of emotions that Khloe experiences when she's walking through those halls. Feeling one of the greatest joys in life and the greatest sadness all for her loved ones, all at the same time.
Stay strong, Khlo!
It looks like Selena Gomez is going in a new direction these days! She was reportedly spotted hooking up with One Direction's Niall Horan over the weekend. Srsly.
E! News is reporting that the singer was seen getting her PDA on with Niall at Jenna Dewan Tatum's birthday party in Los Angeles on Saturday, December 5. They all partied at Bootsy Bellows alongside a number of other stars, including 1D's Louis Tomlinson, Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Adam Levine and of course, Channing Tatum.
E! reports that Sel and Niall were spotted kissing, hugging and dancing close to one another. They also took a photo together with a group of pals.
A source told Us Weekly that, "Niall and Selena definitely seemed very close and like they were together. Niall got there first with his bodyguard, then the next thing I know, I looked over and Selena was there. They were very close together, talking and whispering."
The insider went on, "Selena and Niall left together. She grabbed his arm on the way out and held onto it."
A video has also been posted on Instagram, showing the two enjoying Santa Monica pier with friends after going for a meal and ice cream on Saturday night. Looks like a date, right?
We're guessing Sel's ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber isn't going to like this news. There were rumors they were thinking about getting back together after they were spotted hanging out together in Beverly Hills a few weeks ago.
As for Sel and Niall...well, there's been talk about them hooking up for years, but they insisted they were just pals, and we've only seen them out on "friend-dates." No PDA has been put out there...until now.
You know what would be even more awkward than getting underwear from your dad? If that underwear had their picture on it!
That's exactly what happened to Kylie Jenner in this new Keeping Up With The Kardashians sneak peek when Caitlyn Jenner gave her a bra and underwear with an artsy pattern OF HERSELF all over it!
Apparently, they are limited edition, because Cait said she only has a couple and she was giving a set to Kylie, but Ky doesn't care, that's her dad, you can't wear a pic of your dad on your underwear! "This is way too inappropriate for me to wear," Kylie jokes when she receives Caitlyn's gift.
"I totally agree," Caitlyn laughed, but when she offered to give them to someone else, Kylie was like no way! So maybe she doesn't want to wear them, but of course she wants to keep them.
Now the only question is why does Caitlyn have underwear with her face on it? Guess we'll find out on tonight's Keeping Up With the Kardashians!
Are things heating up between Niall Horan and Selena Gomez on the dating front? Or are these two just totally in the friendzone? They're certainly keeping everyone guessing, that's for sure.
While Sel has called Nialler one of her best friends and the two recently had dinner with friends, Niall was spotted recently watching her at the Jingle Ball...and then things went totally next level when the two were reportedly seen kissing at Jenna Dewan Tatum's birthday party. Of course, fans are saying "pics or it didn't happen" and so far all we've seen is a manip of Niall and Selena kissing, so...
Last night though, the pals were spotted grabbing dinner and ice cream and having a fun date night on the Santa Monica Pier. And this time there were plenty of photos and video to show the whole thing playing out (someone even snagged a grainy video of Niall and Selena on a roller coaster together). In one video, it appears they might be holding hands, but we're not seeing it?
Meanwhile, eagle eyed fans spotted Selena liking some Niall-centric Instagram posts and she started following him, which could mean something...or basically nothing at all.
And then there's Niall's brother, Greg, weighing in on the whole kissing thing with a tweet that we don't know what exactly to make of. He tweeted: "Selena Gomez spotted kissing one of Irelands top celebs it has to be deo devine I got a feeling am I right ha ha ha"
So far, fans are split on whether these two are an actual couple or just having fun as friends. (Our vote is that this is all just friendly. Shrug.)

This Niall and Selena kissing pic isn't exactly as it seems:
omg greg's last tweet.... did he basically confirm niall and selena actually kissed ? 📝🔎👀- maddy (@fIexniaII) December 6, 2015
I'm 200% sure this is a stunt. Or is the pic even photoshopped. Selena' cheek is semi-transparent on Niall's lips lols.- ✿ kkx. (@Kathrynkaren_) December 6, 2015

We were starting to get a little worried that we'd seen the last of Farrah Abraham, Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood and Catelynn Lowell, but MTV has just announced that we'll be seeing our girls again soon when Teen Mom OG returns for another season!
The network has not yet announced a premiere date, although they are expected to release a trailer and premiere date on the Teen Mom Facebook page on Monday, December 7, so we'll definitely keep you posted!
We're so excited to meet Maci and Taylor's daughter Jayde Carter, who was JUST about to arrive when last season ended and was born in May 2015. Hopefully we'll also get to meet Gary Shirley's second child, a daughter he had with Kristina Anderson, who was born in April.
And that's not all! There's a third little girl who we'll get to gush over - Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra's daughter Nova. Can. Not. Wait!
As for Farrah Abraham, she's been hinting that she might be looking into adoption - so who knows, maybe we'll be meeting another little one sometime soon.
How would you react if someone called you beautiful?
Depending on who delivered the commentary, you might be quick to throw on your most steely blank stare (if it came from a lurking stalker type), or maybe break out into some "I woke up like dis" choreography, complete with hair flips and twerking if it came from a stranger who didn't appear to have a motive.
If there's any more tangible evidence that a simple compliment can elicit such varied reactions, then the proof's in this video of people reacting to being called beautiful. Filmed by 18-year-old student Shea Glover as a part of a school project, several of the teens and teachers can be seen responding to her compliment, and honestly, you'll be shocked at how some of them took the news that they were chosen because she found them to be beautiful.
As Seventeen points out, the experiment certainly reveals how many people are hesitant to embrace that particular compliment (there was one amazing hair flip, though), but that could be attributed to a number of things.
If anything, Shea's project is a touching example of how unexpected kind words and deeds can positively impact a person's life. Not only did she accomplish her goal of capturing images of what she finds beautiful, but she managed to reveal her own beauty in the process.
You know how they say that "there's no such thing as a free lunch?" Two years ago, public schools in Chicago made school lunches free for everyone - so why are students protesting their cafeteria food? According to some students in the public school system, it's because the food is completely disgusting - and now they're demanding change.
According to WBEZ, students believe that the quality of their lunches has decreased dramatically since the free lunch program started, which was at the same time that the school hired a new catering company. And when I say "decreased in quality," I really mean things like brown lettuce, plastic left inside of sandwiches (WTF?!?) and fruit that is still frozen or mealy. Umm... that definitely does not sound like the kind of food I want to get me through the next five hours of school.
Here's some proof of what the students are talking about. These pictures, taken from lunches at Roosevelt High School in the Chicago public school system, are absolutely unappetizing... unless you love blue plastic in your burger, of course.Students are now taking a stand via the website The School Lunch Project, which was started by Roosevelt High School junior Shirley Hernandez and provides evidence of the ick, like the photos above. The website, which was started in an honors civics class, also explains why a healthy, nutritious, and non-disgusting lunch is so important for students.
In addition to the website, students at Roosevelt High School are planning on boycotting lunch, a plan that they hope will expand to other schools in the Chicago public school district. There's also an online petition, which will be delivered to the head of the Board of Education. If school lunches don't get better, the petition demands that the school allows them to go off campus for lunch.
It's awesome that the students are taking a stand against this gross. Students spend a ton of time at school, and rely on lunch to get them through the day: it's vital to their health and well-being that they receive nutritious lunches. Keep fighting the good fight, Chicago students!
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had not yet settled on a name for their son on the day that he was born, which actually didn't bother them at all.
Everyone and their mother had suggested South and just Kim laughed it off during an NPR interview, saying, "North will always be better, she has a better direct...Everyone keeps on saying 'South' and I think it's so stupid. It's the stupidest thing ever and it's just so ridiculous."
Kim did say during a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, though, that she does like the name Easton, she just didn't think her hubby was a big fan. Kanye might not love the name, but Twitter definitely does. In fact, if the naming were left up to fans on the social media site, Easton would be the clear winner.
In addition to the fact that "Easton West" started trending on Twitter shortly after the baby was born, fans can't stop tweeting their love for the directional name.
@KimKardashian name baby Easton West- kate! (@katezehqueen) December 6, 2015
Idk which I like better Easton West or North West- Fka Daybear (@daybear_aa) December 6, 2015
EASTON OMARI WEST I'M TELLING YOU- Easton Omari West (@FlwlssKardash) December 5, 2015
Guys, #EastonWest is an adorable name though...- Kristen Alderson (@krisalderson) December 6, 2015
Hey, if they don't like Easton and can't think of anything else, there is always big sister Nori's suggestion of "Baby Brother!" LOL.
Remember when your older sister documented her entire life on a digital camera? We don't either. We can't remember the last time any one actually used a digital camera, but Korean company BOUD thinks that there's still hope for cameras that don't live inside of your iPhone.
BOUD has developed the Flex Cam PIC, a camera that looks like an alien with a cyclops' eye (Fast Company called it a Pixar character #hilar.) Our personal fav? The one that looks like Frankenstein (far left.)
That value prop of the camera is that it's designed to be flexible for any situation: selfies, traveling, hiking, or doing any sort of activity where it's tough to take a photo. It's pretty difficult to hold your phone and take a snap while you're ice skating with your crush this holiday season, and the Flex Cam could be your only hope to catch a photo of the epic moment.
The camera sets up just like it looks: to bend around whatever you need it to. That could be your wrist, backpack, purse, whatever. All you need to do to get your photos is plug it into your USB drive on your computer. The company even had a crowdfund on Indiegogo this fall, raising enough money to sell it commercially this year.
Check out the video below to see more of how you can use this crazy-looking camera.
Full disclosure: I'm a huge dog person. I also happen to be a huge greyhound person (yes, we exist, and we're really, really cool.) That's why this story about a woman who dedicated her time to keeping these adorable dogs warm in the winter is pulling at all of my heartstrings - and it should inspire lots of other animal lovers to follow her example!
According to The Mirror, Jan Brown, 52, from Seaburn, Sunderland, has hand-knitted over 300 sweaters to give to homeless greyhounds over the holidays. She has spent over 4,000 hours on her charity project, and has gotten so many orders since she started that she quit her job to knit dog sweaters full time. Since the sweaters are Christmas gifts, she tries to make them as festive as possible - and we're sure that the dogs very much appreciate it:
Thanks to Jan, greyhounds that are not rehomed will get a snuggly present this Christmas - and look totally adorable in it.
The rescue homes have to spend the money they raise on vets bills and nursing the dogs back to health so my coats help them to prioritize their money...It feels like I'm knitting and sewing all the time, I'm never doing anything else - but I know it's all worth it.
We can't stop...and we won't stop watching Tyra Banks twerk!
We know, twerking is kind of over, but after you see this video of Tyra doing her thing, you'll be glad she brought it back for a minute.
First of all, her skills are on point. Literally - ON point. Second of all, she's twerking to Mariah Carey - who knew that was even possible?! But even if those two things weren't what they were, it's the totem pole dress and the way that it literally looks like the statue is coming to life as she twerks her butt off. It's basically a win all around.

Everything just went SO right. And you were totally mesmerized, weren't you?
Kendall Jenner continues to kill it in the Dubsmash game and this time, she brought us this amazing Scott Pilgrim vs. The World shoutout, reminding us that carbs are bad - and also reminding us that we legit don't care because carbs are life.
Kendall is just an awesome Dubsmasher, there are no two ways about it. We still love watching this one that she made with BFF Hailey Baldwin after Hailey broke her foot:
Of course, Kendall's other BFF Cara Delevingne is also pretty epic in the Dubsmash department:
Now we're just waiting for Kendall and Cara (aka CaKe) to have a Dubsmash battle and we'll just sit back and enjoy the show!
Fifth Harmony already see an end to their group in sight? Can this be true? We hope rumors of a breakup aren't in the too soon future, but they say they've thought about it.
It sounds like they might not be together in five years, however, as band member Dinah Jane Hansen was asked about 5H's future.
During an interview with EuropaFM, she explained: "We've been together for basically three years now, and looking back, we're very, very happy with where we're at right now. But from here on out, we just wanna see - we just wanna hopefully win a couple more awards together, maybe build more music together, as well, before we...I feel like we'll probably go our separate ways maybe later on. That's the truth."
Can't fault a girl for telling the truth, but this breaks our hearts a little bit.
