Madonna Visits Malawi Orphanage With Mercy And David Banda

Posted on Fri Nov 28th, 2014 9:58am PDT       By X17 Staff


Aww how sweet! Madonna looks like she had a grand old time when she took her children David Banda and Mercy James to the orphanage in Malawi on Thursday.

The 56-year-old superstar arrived in Central Africa on Wednesday, and Thursday she posted some adorable Instagram snaps at Kondanani Children's Home, the orphanage where she adopted Mercy. In one of the photos, the material girl was swinging on a swing set, as Mercy pushes her. Along with the pic, she wrote, "Getting pushed around by Mercy James at Kondanani Orphanage! #livingforlove."

In the other photo, nine-year-old David is hanging upside down as a happy Mercy stands beside him. The sexy singer wrote, "The World is upside down! Count your blessings! They are endless."

Later that day, Madonna visited the Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in Blantyre, which is the second largest city in Malawi.

While Madge may not have had a turkey, stuffing, and all the trimmings this Thanksgiving, this sounds like a lovely way to give thanks!

Posted on Fri Nov 28th, 2014 9:29am PDT       By X17 Staff



That's one way to burn off those Thanksgiving calories!

After partying it up with Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid on Wednesday night, model Cara Delevingne went to Kate Hudson's house for Thanksgiving on Thursday. But this wasn't just any turkey day -- after dinner Kate, 35, and Cara, 22, accepted a dance challenge from Julianne Hough, and the actress posted a handful of video clips on Instagram documenting the craziness.

The clip above is the final one in a series of four, and Kate wrote:
    We gladly accept @juleshough #thanksgivingdancewars challenge. Let's make this happen @caradelevingne #oliverhudson #wyattrussell #bostonrussell #pa #dancebattle #UptownFunk And that's my Mom counting us in in the background...

We're not sure who introduced these two, but they certainly know how to get the party started!

Shia LaBeouf Says He Was Raped During "I Am Not Famous Anymore" Exhibit

Posted on Fri Nov 28th, 2014 9:00am PDT       By X17 Staff

INTERVIEW from Rönkkö / Turner on Vimeo.



Shia LaBeouf gave a shocking interview with Dazed magazine, claiming that he had been raped by a woman during his infamous "I am Not Famous Anymore" gallery showing in Los Angeles last February.

    "One woman who came with her boyfriend, who was outside the door when this happened, whipped my legs for ten minutes and then stripped my clothing and proceeded to rape me ... There were hundreds of people in line when she walked out with disheveled hair and smudged lipstick. It was no good, not just for me but her man as well. On top of that my girl was in line to see me, because it was Valentine’s Day and I was living in the gallery for the duration of the event – we were separated for five days, no communication. So it really hurt her as well, as I guess the news of it travelled through the line. When she came in she asked for an explanation, and I couldn’t speak, so we both sat with this unexplained trauma silently. It was painful."


Rape, whether it's male on female or female on male, is still a very important issue and we are glad the actor is shedding light on it.

 

Justin Bieber Bonds With Pastor Carl Lentz's Family Before Thanksgiving

Posted on Fri Nov 28th, 2014 8:30am PDT       By X17 Staff


Ok, so maybe Justin Bieber really is serious about this whole religious awakening, because on Wednesday the pop superstar spent the day with pastor Carl Lentz's family.

The 20-year-old singer posted the above photo with Lentz's daughter and wrote, "Made a snowman with this little cutie. Make memories with the ones you love! #HappyThanksgiving." It's not clear where Bieber was on Thursday, but seeing as he's Canadian and their Thanksgiving was last month, it doesn't appear as though the Biebs had any big plans. And he certainly wasn't with Selena Gomez -- she was with her friends and family in Texas.

Bieber and Lentz, who preaches at Hillsong Church in New York City, have been friends for 6 years now, and the two have been spending quite a bit of time together. Earlier this month it was reported that Bieber was on a mission to learn how to spread the word of God, and while he was supposed to spend two weeks with Lentz, it seems like he came home early.

Still, if Biebs looks to Lentz as a role model, that's going to help him get back on track. After a number of legal problems over the last few years (not to mention his relationship with Gomez becoming tabloid fodder), he could certainly benefit from cleaning up his act.

"I have a special role in Justin’s life, spiritually," Lentz told the New York Post recently. "But I’m not a life-motivational guy. We’re talking about making sure his life remains a blessing, not a burden." OK then!

Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt's Friends Thought Working Together On By The Sea Was A "Bad Idea"

Posted on Fri Nov 28th, 2014 7:58am PDT       By X17 Staff


Angelina Jolie appeared on Australia's Today Show on Friday, and the 39-year-old actress didn't comment on the photos that surfaced of her and hubby Brad Pitt having a huge argument, but she did reveal that working with him wasn't a piece of cake.

"We haven't acted together for ten years. We decided we would do it again and we did a very small drama about family, about marriage in fact," she said. "We did a drama about a bad marriage." When the interviewer commented that was "skating on thin ice," Jolie said, "A lot of friends of ours thought is was a really ... they didn't say a bad idea ... but they asked us a few times if we were sure we wanted to do it."

During a chat with Australia's Channel 4 News earlier this week, Jolie said of her time with Pitt on set, "It (was) uncomfortable but we've already shot it, we've survived it and we're stronger for it. It was very tough material, so for any actors it was heavy dramatic emotional work."

 

Celebs Share Their Thanksgiving Snapshots

Posted on Fri Nov 28th, 2014 7:15am PDT       By X17 Staff


Some of our favorite stars went big for turkey day and some kept it a little bit more low key, but most of them couldn't resist posting a few Instagram photos of themselves -- or their meals!

Miley Cyrus posed for a picture with her sister Brandi, and we're not sure what the ladies are drinking, but it looks like the Cyrus family had quite the feast at their Toluca Lake home. Miranda Kerr posted an adorable snapshot with her son Flynn, and while it was slightly less traditional, Demi Moore and daughter Rumer dressed up in animal onesies and posted a selfie. John Legend and wife Chrissy Teigen also posted a ton of pictures, and Jessica Simpson posted an adorable snapshot of her two children, Maxi and Ace, calling them her little "wild turkeys"!

Of course, the couples were taking over social media as well -- Kaley Cuoco and hubby Ryan Sweeting posed for a quick pic and Portia de Rossi took a sweet selfie with wife Ellen DeGeneres from the dinner table. Click the gallery below for more photos!

 

Gwen Stefani Rocks Some Funky Fashion For A Pre-Thanksgiving Bash With The Family

Posted on Thu Nov 27th, 2014 10:10am PDT       By X17 Staff


On Wednesday afternoon Gwen Stefani rounded up her three sons and went to a pre-Thanksgiving bash in their neighborhood, and as always, she looked amazing. We'd never try to pull off wedge sneakers and houndstooth-print leggings with an Adidas track jacket, but this is Gwen, people!

The 45-year-old singer carried her youngest son Apollo, and while Kingston was ready on time, little Zuma seemed more interested in shooting hoops in the driveway. Aww!

 

Lisa Rinna's Lips Are Out Of Control!

Posted on Thu Nov 27th, 2014 9:49am PDT       By X17 Staff


We're not sure what Lisa Rinna has done to her lips, but she needs to stop! Her mouth seriously looks like something that belongs on a wild animal...

On Wednesday the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star went for a hike near her home in the valley, and while her bod looks amazing, her face is downright scary! Yesterday Lisa tweeted a meme that read, "I'm not perfect, but I'm always myself." Really though? We highly doubt those are the lips she was born with, so how can she really be herself if she's morphing into someone we don't even recognize?
