The Voice's finale was last night, and it was an over-the-top event. Not only did Cher prove she can still rock a wig at age 67, but also, Christina Aguilera made a surprise appearance with her trim new figure. (She looks great!) Check out all the highlights.
Demi Moore joined several Oscar-winning Hollywood stars at AFI's Night at the Movies event in NYC last night. She wore a sheer jumpsuit as she mingled with stars like Harrison Ford, Sally Field, and Cher, who were all at the event to introduce one of their classic movies during the film-lovers bash. Demi presented Ghost, her 1990 film with Patrick Swayze, while Cher introduced Moonstruck and Sally chatted about Norma Rae. This was a rare red carpet appearance for Demi, whose last public event was to check out Ferragamo's Spring runway collection alongside Nicole Richie and Rachel Zoe back in January. She didn't make it to the Sundance Film Festival this year, but her new film with Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Fanning, Very Good Girls, did premiere to decent reviews at the annual event.
Ellen DeGeneres had Chaz Bono on her show Thursday to talk about his life as a man and his upcoming appearance on Dancing With the Stars. Ellen then surprised Chaz with a phone call from his mom, the one and only Cher. Cher didn't hold back her passionate support for her child and let us know she has no patience for those threatening to boycott DWTS. Cher said, "If you've got that excess time and that amount of hostility I'm not sure that I can say anything to you to change your feelings. Those are such feelings of hostility and fear." Listen to Cher come to Chaz's defense and watch Ellen and Chaz's reaction now.
We want to wish singer, actress, and all-around-legend Cher a happy birthday today! To celebrate her 65-year-long life, we're looking back at her former loves, who are just as eccentric as her taste in clothing and big hair. From rock stars to robbing the cradle, she's been involved with A-list actors, a gay man, and a "bagel boy." See them all now, and sing along with us, "If I could turn baaaack time . . ."
Nicole Richie cozied up to her husband, Joel Madden, last night at the Vans X Jessie Jo launch party at LA's Troubadour. The parents of two partied alongside Joel's brother, Benji, as well as pals like Samantha Ronson and even Cher. Nicole wrapped up her daily stint at the gym to attend the bash, and she showed off the products of her hard work in a spread for the upcoming The Block magazine. She also teamed up with her trainer, Tracy Anderson, for a new video showcasing the dance fitness method they both love. Joel got in on some taped fun recently as well by creating a piece for Funny or Die.
Some stars' past Academy Award beauty looks weren't the best we've ever seen, but a peek back into the red carpet vault proves that there were many who got it right. Sure, poodle perms, frosted shadows, and brick red lipstick might look strange or dated to us now, but they at one point constituted what was hot at the time. Here are 40 stars who stood out with their memorable makeup and hairstyles at the Oscars (and Governors Ball) from way back when.
Many big stars of the music world turned out in LA last night for Clive Davis's annual pre-Grammys party held inside the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Marie Claire covergirl Miley Cyrus cozied up to her pal and So Undercover costar Kelly Osbourne, while Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey stopped to share about their Valentine's Day plans with BuzzSugar. Jennifer Hudson took the stage with performers like Matthew Morrison, who opened up at the bash about the joys of kissing Gwyneth Paltrow on Glee. Gwyneth will make another much-anticipated appearance this evening when she performs a duet with Cee-Lo Green — stay tuned for our coverage of the show, and check out Bella and Fab as well with their love it or hate it polls!
Only two days left until New Year's! Cher has made a few million jaws drop with her over-the-top, wildly creative outfits. There is no such thing as too much for Cher, and while her style is a hard act to follow in daily life (unless your name is Lady Gaga), we happily use Cher as inspiration for a dressed-to-the-nines New Year's look. Mix a glittering sequin dress with these feather earrings ($21), or a feather dress and a gold sequin jacket ($500) for a gorgeously styled look that won't feel like a costume.
From the moment she belts out her first note, Christina Aguilera owns Burlesque. Her big voice echoes as she shimmies through each song and dance number while coquettishly winking at the camera. I'd even go so far as to call her hypnotic. If Burlesque was just an Aguilera stage show, it would be completely satisfying. Unfortunately, movies require actual plot and dialogue and when it comes to both, the film leaves much to be desired.
Burlesque starts the same way as most small-town girl stories: Aguilera plays Ali, a waitress in Iowa with dreams of moving to Los Angeles. She buys a one-way ticket, moves into a rickety motel (the kind that's so shady you apparently have to hide your money in the toilet), and scouts the newspaper for random jobs. That's when she spots a woman in fishnets outside of a local club called Burlesque. Ali is immediately entranced by the glamorous dancers, but to become one of them, she'll have to get the approval of the club's gatekeeper, Tess (Cher).
