Nicki Minaj's 'Idol' eye rolls are really irritating

Nicki Minaj eye roll 'American Idol'

Perhaps threatened by the high-impact stage presence of Mariah Carey’s boobs, Nicki Minaj has begun to fancy her constant side-eyes as two more main characters on American Idol (read EW’s full recap here). Can she please cut it out and cede the spotlight to the real stars of the show — Keith Urban’s highlights? So rude! Oh, or the contestants. That’s right.

A star is born: Why we love Jennifer Lawrence (Or why she's the perfect 2013 superstar)

Flip through your Facebook or Twitter feed over the past 24 hours, and you’re likely inundated with Jennifer Lawrence love. The current ‘It’ girl is certainly having a moment this awards season, on top of an already incredible 2012. When she won her Best Actress Oscar Sunday night, if felt — like many Oscar fans predicted – that the Academy was crowning the next big movie star. But the interesting thing about JLaw is that she presents herself to be so different from the Hollywood golden girl of a decade or so ago. Julia Roberts in the ‘90s and Reese Witherspoon in the early ’00s certainly had their fans, but Lawrence’s charm is helping propel her to a new kind of celebrity. She’s rewriting the rules for how we view our superstars, perfectly adjusting to 2013’s demands.

She combines Everywoman likability (the big Oscar stumble!) with Hollywood glamour (the big recovery!), and, of course, Oscar-approved raw talent. All together, she’s gearing up to be a once-in-a-generation star, and she’s doing it by rewriting the starlet rulebook. Her goofy personality is transcending the typical stories that get written about young ingénues. Don’t believe me? Check out a becoming-a-superstar checklist that acts as a complete rundown for how Jennifer Lawrence has become the perfect 2013 celebrity.

Kim and Kanye get hot and heavy for French fashion magazine cover

L-Officiel-Hommes-Kanye-West-Kim-Kardashian-Nick-Knight_510x510Kim Kardashian sees Demi Moore’s naked and pregnant Vanity Fair cover and raises her this (seemingly) naked, pregnant, faux-mid-coitus L’Officiel Hommes cover, co-starring Kanye West as “the guy simulating sex with Kim Kardashian.” Clearly, this couple is trying to make things as awkward as possible for their unborn kid. Little Konniption Kardashian-West must be protected from Google at all costs, once he or she learns how to type.

Think the cover is classy in a French fashion magazine sort of way, or trashy in a low rent French fashion magazine sort of way?

'Les Miserables' is returning to Broadway. Let's dream cast it!

Did you hear the people singing yesterday? To be fair, it was mostly the screams of excited Les Misérables fans when they heard the show was coming back to Broadway, set for a new opening in March 2014. Details right now are scarce – although we do know that the new production will be based on the current West End revival of the piece, which contains slightly different staging and other adjustments.

As for casting, it’s too early in the game for official announcements – which is where the fun comes in. Below, see some dream picks for all the big roles when the show hits Broadway next year. Because this production is obviously happening in part because of renewed interest because of the Oscar-nominated movie, the film cast (and the publicity they would bring) seem obvious choices. But for this (day)dream I dreamed,  let’s assume that the stars of the film are all Les Mis’d out (no matter how much Anne Hathaway may want a Tony), and it is other performers’ moment. See some of our picks below, and then add your own. READ FULL STORY

Michelle Obama hosts 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' Q&A

Beasts of the Southern Wild may be a small movie, but it’s got a big fan in the White House.

On Wednesday, First Lady Michelle Obama spoke about the film to about 80 middle- and high-school students from the District of Columbia and New Orleans in town for a Black History Month workshop.

At the White House, the students got to see the film, and then have a Q&A with director Benh Zeitlin and actors Dwight Henry and nine-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis. The chat was moderated by Michelle Obama, according to The Washington Post.

The First Lady spoke personally about her love of the film: “It’s rare these days to find a movie that can so completely and utterly captivate such a broad audience and that was one of the things that struck me about this movie,” she said. “It managed to be beautiful, joyful and devastatingly honest.” READ FULL STORY

Grammys: J. Lo saves Adele from hydrangea huckster with a quick disco jerk of the thumb

Adele-Grammy-Crasher

Crisis averted! As if oozing Angelina Leg in a stunning Hefty Sack wasn’t heroic enough, Jennifer Lopez ended up saving Adele from a sure-to-be-obnoxious encounter with Grammys crasher Vitalii Seduik — the same Ukranian TV personality who tried to make out with Will Smith on the red carpet of Men in Black III‘s Moscow premiere and gifted Madonna those absolutely loathsome hydrangeas! Seduik somehow got onstage as Adele came up to accept the Grammy for Best Solo Pop Performance, but luckily J. Lo was there to throw him a scathing “Set Fire to This Pain in the Ass” glare and then shoo him away with a quick jerk of her thumb. Behold an international hero at work in the short clip below.
