Bow down: Blue Ivy Carter turns one today

What do you get a baby who has everything?

It’s Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s daughter Blue Ivy Carter’s first birthday today, and I’m assuming she already owns anything and everything I could think to get her for the big day — save for a trademarked name. Even her parents couldn’t pull that off. Despite that minor setback, Blue had a pretty glamorous, high-profile first year, even though she only made a few (mostly yacht-based) appearances. She also guested on Dad’s rap single hours after she was born, was a shopping companion for Mom, and set the bar for how cute one could look wearing a concert T-shirt.

Happy Birthday, Joe Manganiello!

Joe Manganiello turns 36 today, and to celebrate, here’s a quick look back at his greatest EW hits.

• That time he told us about borrowing clothing from the Los Angeles fire department for his memorable MTV Movie Awards appearance: “It was hilarious. It was me, Channing [Tatum], and Matthew [McConaughey] backstage. I’ve got no shirt on and this real, f—in’ huge fireman axe I’m throwin’ around, and I’m meeting Oscar winner Charlize Theron, who’s tellin’ me about how they hired a fireman stripper for her mom’s birthday one year. [Laughs] I’m listening, but I’m nervous…. They told us ahead of time that Elizabeth Banks won. They’re like, ‘Dude, you should f—in’ carry her off.’ I’m like, ‘Okay. God bless her, I hope she goes with it.’”  READ FULL STORY

Happy birthday, Britney: 3+1 of our favorite music videos

It’s Britney’s birthday, y’all. The pop songstress turned reality television judge celebrates the big 31 today. Wowza. It seems like only yesterday that she was reminding us how not-so-innocent a teenager she was. Obviously, in terms of drama, it also feels like she’s lived about eight lifetimes. But 2012 was an upswing for her. She’s on The X Factor, has a new song with Will.i.am, and on the personal life front, is still engaged. You go, girl!

In honor of Brit’s big day, we rounded up four (3+1) of our favorite Spears music videos from over the years…including one I’m betting you non-superfans have forgotten about. Check out the dancing — and the signature syrup-y sweet vocals — below:

Toxic:
Obviously, you’ve got to start off with one of her most famous tracks. This video had everything: Sexy Britney, wig changes, that famous nude bedazzled bodysuit — not to mention a killer dance tune to start with. Just try and listen and not get the weirdly sexual airplane fun stuck in your head all over again.  READ FULL STORY

Jesse Tyler Ferguson gets surprise birthday serenade from Boston Gay Men's Chorus -- VIDEO

Modern Family‘s Eric Stonestreet went all out for his costar Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s birthday on Oct. 22. He arranged for the Boston Gay Men’s Chorus to surprise Ferguson onstage. Over half of the 195-member strong ensemble showed up on roughly three hours’ notice. The surprise starts at 2:30 in the video below. Following “Happy Birthday,” the chorus performs Katy Perry’s “Firework” (3:40). You can see why Ferguson is a recurring guest judge on So You Think You Can Dance — he picks up simple choreography quickly. His reaction at 6:00 when the guys get creative with “come on, let your colors burst” is the real reason to watch this. We won’t spoil it for you.  READ FULL STORY

John Mayer celebrates 35th birthday with Katy Perry

It seems Katy Perry’s not taking Taylor Swift’s sage advice – she appears to be back together with John Mayer. The two were photographed side-by-side in New York on Tuesday night while celebrating Mayer’s 35th birthday at ABC Kitchen. The musical couple supposedly split in August after a whirlwind courtship lasting all of two months, and I predicted (inaccurately, drat) that he’d hook up with Jennifer Lawrence or Kristen Stewart next.

Happy B'Day, Beyonce! Let's count down why you're fabulous -- VIDEO

One score and 11 years ago, Mathew and Tina Knowles brought forth on this continent a new diva, conceived in Texas and dedicated to the proposition that all ’90s pop stars are not created equal. The same year that she reached legal voting age, a fresh-faced Beyoncé found superstardom as the lead singer of Destiny’s Child. And 13 summers later, she’s still one of pop culture’s heaviest hitters.

Today, Bey turns 31 — the age at which women are most beautiful, if a QVC poll is to be believed. But Mrs. Jay-Z has been and will be fierce at any age. So, in honor of the occasion — and this funky single from 4 — let’s count down precisely why we love Queen B so. Here are five reasons to get the ball rolling.

5. Because she knows the show must go on, even when one of your girls takes a tumble. Proof:

What movie experience made you like people again?

singin-in-the-rain

We all have stories of movies being ruined by people talking through them in the theater. Today, let’s celebrate that time a movie experience actually restored our faith in humanity.

Last night, I went to see Singin’ in the Rain on the big screen, in honor of the film’s 60th anniversary and the fact that today would have been Gene Kelly’s 100th birthday. I was with a friend who’s also a huge Gene Kelly fan, and I told her we should elbow each other each time one of us begins to tear up from pure happiness. Normally, if I’m planning on writing about a movie, I’ll take notes, but I just wanted to enjoy this. I lost count of how many times we nudged each other. I also couldn’t tell you how many times I got chills, or how many times I looked over and saw my friend grinning larger than ever before (I’ve known her 15 years now), or how many times I thought, how long have I been smiling?

Happy birthday, Lindsay Lohan!

Lindsay Lohan turns 26 today, and here at PopWatch headquarters we would like to sincerely wish Lohan a happy (and sober) birthday.

As in the past, Lohan’s 25th year has had its ups and downs, but she seems to be on an upswing. She hosted a highly rated episode of Saturday Night Live and finally got off probation in March. She also started filming a Lifetime movie, Liz & Dick, playing Elizabeth Taylor, and generated positive press in some early photos from the film. She also shot a guest-starring role on Glee in the spring, sending up her image as a troubled starlet.

Of course, Lohan’s also hit a few…speedbumps. She’s still struggling behind the wheel, crashing her Porsche into a truck last month, and suffering from exhaustion on the set of Liz & Dick. She posed for Playboy in December, and last week got herself into hot water for a series of sultry photos (complete with a gun!) that sparked controversy. READ FULL STORY
