Michelle Obama, Reese Witherspoon, and more join #BringBackOurGirls campaign

It’s been nearly a month since hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls were kidnapped by the terrorist group Boko Haram, and now celebrities are using their star power to help raise awareness of these women’s plight — and, hopefully, to help get them back home.

With the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls, notable figures such as Michelle Obama, Reese Witherspoon, and Jessica Biel are using social media to spread the word and offer support for the girls and their families.  READ FULL STORY

Jessica Biel, Jason Bateman, Josh Gad join Matt Damon's toilet strike

Matt Damon is no longer alone in his refusal to use a toilet until the entire world has access to clean water.

Fellow “famous people” — as Damon affectionately calls them in the video below — Jessica Biel, Jason Bateman, and Josh Gad have joined his toilet strike, which he announced last month in a “press conference.” The silly-but-really-very-serious awareness campaign is led by Damon and the organization he co-founded, Water.org.

In the campaign, Damon and Water.org have called for change, citing the 2.5 billion people worldwide who are without adequate sanitation, the 800 million people who do not have access to clean drinking water every day and the 4,000 children under age five who die each day from preventable water-related illness.

Check out the new video below, which Water.org released today, to see Gad’s enthusiasm for striking, to hear about Bateman’s choice of a toilet-alternative and to learn about how Biel can make a room smell like a singing hummingbird. READ FULL STORY

'Playing for Keeps': I saw it so you don't have to

Playing for Keeps stars Gerard Butler as former professional soccer player George Dryer, who moves to Virgina in order to reconnect with family and becomes the coach of his kid’s soccer team in the process. Thrilling, right? Well, if you want to know whether or not George’s story has a happy ending, you’re in luck because I was one of the few people who saw it, so you don’t have to. Warning: Spoilers ahead. (But really, that’s the whole point of this, no?)

Justin Timberlake apologizes for 'unsavory' wedding video

Justin Timberlake has issued an apology on his website for a video that shows homeless people from Los Angeles congratulating him on his wedding to Jessica Biel. The video, obtained by Gawker, was created by a friend of Timberlake’s, Justin Huchel, and was released on the Internet earlier this week.

“I’d like to start off by saying that I don’t live my life making fun of people (unless, of course, I’m making fun of myself on SNL),” the singer wrote in an open letter. “Especially, those who are less fortunate or those in need. I grew up with a family and community that instilled ideals in me like hard work, honesty and empathy.”

While he calls the recording “silly” and “unsavory,” he says it was “made as a joke and not in any way in mockery” and claims that he “had no knowledge of its existence. I had absolutely ZERO contribution to it.”

Justin Timberlake serenades Jessica Biel at wedding reception -- What song would you want to hear?

Sorry gals, it looks like love. While performing at his wedding reception, Justin Timberlake reportedly debuted a new song for his ladylove, Jessica Biel.

Us Weekly reported the news, and if true, this means that the man whose music career has been on hold since 2006 actually took the time to pen some lyrics for his betrothed. If that’s not love, I don’t know what is.

Since the ceremony consisted of an intimate gathering of friends and family, I doubt there’s any shaky camera footage of the performance out there. (Not that we didn’t try combing YouTube.) There’s no word on whether Timberlake will release the new tune, but in the meantime, let’s debate which Timberlake song we would have wanted him to sing to us? READ FULL STORY
