Lea Michele Embraces Her Nose, Happy She Didn't Get Plastic Surgery

October 20th, 2010 8:25am EDT
Lea Michele
Lea Michele is proud she never bowed to pressure from Hollywood producers and high school bullies to get a nose job because her hit show "Glee" proves she didn't need surgery to be a star.

The 24 year old has admitted she struggled with insecurity as a young actress, and was turned down for several jobs after being told she wasn't pretty enough to be a big star.

The pressure became so intense, Michele admits she seriously considered cosmetic surgery, but now she's lashed out at the people who encouraged her to go under the knife early on.

She tells GQ magazine, "I was one of the only gir...

'Glee' Recap: Keeping the Faith

October 6th, 2010 11:18am EDT
finn
This week’s "Glee" summoned a higher power than Britney Spears and gave us a good reason to continue to believe in this show. Our prayers for a character and plot-driven episode were answered! 'Grilled Cheesus' had a story, a clear theme, and a variety of interesting musical interpretations of said theme that deserve to be praised. So now, to continue our sacred tradition, let’s recap last night’s show…

Are You There God? It’s Mi-Mi-Mi-Mi-Mi...

To take on a complex subject like religion, ‘Glee’ begins with a Christ-like imprint in Finn’s grilled cheese. This perfectly absurd deity becomes...

Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston is under attack from a disability group for using the word "retard" in a TV interview.

The actress was talking about dressing up as her heroine Barbra Streisand for the upcoming issue of Harper's Bazaar on "Live with Regis and Kelly" on Thursday when she made the slip-up.

She said, "I play dress up. I do it for a living - like a retard!"

The off-hand remark has upset officials at The Arc, a non-profit advocate for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and CEO Pete Burns has taken aim at Aniston.

He tells UsMagazine.com, "It was extraordinarily offensiv...

Jennifer Aniston
Legendary entertainer Barbra Streisand has praised Jennifer Aniston's attempt at impersonating her style in movie classic "Funny Girl" for a new magazine photoshoot, insisting she did a "wonderful job."

Aniston bears an uncanny likeness to the Oscar winner in the classy shots and Streisand is impressed by the transformation.

Jennifer Aniston Harpers 2
Jennifer Aniston appears in the next issue of Harper's Bazaar dressed up as Funny Girl's Barbra Streisand. She told the mag about how she finally met the legend in New York.

Well, she was wonderful, and you could talk to her about anything."

Aniston said that her friend and hairst...

Tony Award Night Is Filled With 'Glee'

June 14th, 2010 10:30am EDT
Matthew Morrison
On Broadway’s biggest night, there was a lot of love for the television phenomenon that made musical theatre cool and turned several stars of the stage into household names.

Even though “Glee” stars, Matthew Morrison and Lea Michele didn’t appear on-stage until two and a half hours into the broadcast, the Tony Awards were a gleeked out event from beginning to end. The marketing geniuses at CBS obviously realized the TV stars could attract a lot of people who would have little to no interest in anything else going on, and promoted the “special performance” before every single commercial bre...

TV’s Glee has made a star out of the unconventional Lea Michele, just like Funny Girl did for Barbra Streisand.

What We Were All Thinking - The Full Starpulse Oscars Recap

March 8th, 2010 1:50am EST
Oscar Feature
Tonight's Oscar ceremony is probably the most re-designed ceremony in Academy history.

Just look at all the changes. 10 Best Picture nominees, two hosts, no Best Song performances, more dance, a supposed streamlined show, and, weirdest of all, a request for no "thank yous" during the acceptance speeches.

Plus, a few of last year's tweaks will remain. They're sticking with the abhorrent practice of having five actors come out and sing the praises of the year's present crop of nominees (at least only in the Leading categories this year), and the producers are insistent on further expandin...

Rap superstar Jay-Z turned down the opportunity to join Quincy Jones' star-studded remake of We Are The World - because he didn't want to touch the classic.

Legendary producer Jones teamed up with Lionel Richie, who recorded the original 1985 hit with Michael Jackson, and recruited a host of artists including Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Wyclef Jean, Janet Jackson, Usher, Lil Wayne and Nick Jonas to raise money for the Haiti earthquake relief effort.

The Empire State of Mind hit-maker was personally invited by Jones to take part in the charity single, but, while he is supportive o...

'Glee' Recap: 'Acafellas'

Glee
Despite being called "Acafella" and focusing on Will's attempts to form his own adult group, this week's episode was still all about the kids…particularly Miss Mercedes. The girl moved just as fiercely as any of her scantily clad cheerleader back-up dancers during "Bust Your Windows." Kurt may have broken her heart initially (by lying about loving Rachel), but when he finally confessed his homosexuality, Mercedes pulled through with a heartfelt and supportive (if not slightly sappy) speech about friendship and acceptance. With Mercedes left boyfriendless I really hoped this would be the epi...

Celebrity Horoscope: Taurus

April 21st, 2008 8:00am EDT
Renee Zellweger
People who inhabit the Taurus sign (April 20-May 20) have a great work ethic and are reliable, honest, and determined. They don't take any unnecessary risks and are not easily distracted. In other words, they're taskmasters.

Take Cher, for example. She's been working since she was 17 - that's 45 years in the business and one heck of a work ethic. Although she "officially retired" following her 2005 farewell tour, she is contracted to perform over 200 shows over the next three years.

Those born under the bull sign also like to live comfortably. That's not a difficult thi...

"Too cheesy," "not relevant," "extremely cabaret" and "terrible vocals" were common criticisms heard from the south end of the judging table this past week on "American Idol." Aside from Paula Abdul's over-the-top compliments and Randy Jackson's on-the-fence opinions, Simon Cowell's take on week one completely highlighted the show.

This year, it seems that Simon is determined to find the right singer to advance into the music industry. And why shouldn't he? A professional needs to be able to handle the rigmarole of the music industry. But often times, Simon loses his focus. Just h...
