The ‘Glee’ gal gets glam in a sultry shoot for ‘Complex’ magazine, and inside she dishes on her love life — and how different it would be if she wasn’t famous!
In a sexy new spread for Complex magazine, Naya Rivera bares it all … literally! The Glee star dishes about her career, strict upbringing, and even her 25-year-old rapper beau, Big Sean! Did we mention she is half-clothed?
Naya Rivera’s ‘Complex’ Interview:
The actress channels a sixties star for the poker-themed shoot, sporting retro curls and a dark lip. From lacy lingerie to menswear inspired looks, the star looks amazing in all the outfits — and she didn’t hold back when it came to spilling on her love life! "If I wasn't famous, I'd be on OkCupid," she tells the mag. "All my friends are.”
Naya Rivera & Big Sean:
Naya’s boyfriend, Big Sean, decided to stop by and show support for his lady on set — how cute! Midway through the shoot, the rapper popped in and gave Naya a huge hug. He even had some adorable things to say about his girlfriend! "She's the best thing that's ever happened to me," Sean says in almost a whisper, as she steps back in front of the camera. "She's one of those people that you can connect to, and I think she's going to be a superstar," he gushes.
Naya was less than shy about her relationship, telling the mag that “he’s a sweetheart.” She also explains working around their crazy schedules to make the relationship as cohesive as it is. "With anything that you want, you'll work at it and make the time for it," she says.
Naya Rivera’s ‘Complex’ PICS:
Naya is naturally beautiful, and we’ve seen this striking beauty time and time again. However, this photo shoot just wasn’t our cup of tea. There’s no doubt that the shots are sexy and it’s pretty hard to make Naya Rivera look bad! It’s the photoshop that made us dissatisfied with the shoot. Naya’s natural beauty is barely seen due to the way the images were touched up. We also don’t like the black lipstick on the star.

It’s almost wedding time for Mackenzie Douthit and fiancé Josh McKee! The ‘Teen Mom 3′ stars are taking a big step for their family — congrats!
While the trailer for Teen Mom 3 season one is already gearing us up for the most dramatic season of Teen Mom yet, mom Mackenzie Douthit is getting ready for a much happier moment — her wedding day! The competitive cheerleader has had a rocky on-again off-again relationship with her bull-riding fiancé Josh McKee, but wedding plans seem to be all systems go.
Mackenzie, 18, is getting all set to marry her long-term high school boyfriend, Josh. According to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, the date is set for August 17. The ceremony will take place at a venue in Kansas — not their home state of Oklahoma. The couple have been dating since 2010, and have one son together, Gannon, who turns 2 on September 12. We wonder if the adorable Gannon will get to play a role in his parents’ ceremony!
The new season of Teen Mom will definitely reveal the couple’s relationship as a rocky one: the pair have been previously engaged and they called off the wedding after a few months of being engaged, back in March. After only a few days of being broken up, Mackenzie and Josh got back together — and will hopefully make it to the big day this time!
‘Teen Mom 3′ Star Mackenzie Douthit’s Wedding Shower
Mackenzie took to Twitter to thank everyone who came out to her wedding shower, meaning that the wedding plans are going well so far. “Had an amazing wedding shower thank you everyone who came it meant a lot to me,” Mackenzie tweeted on July 13.
What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Are you excited for Mackenzie and Josh’s wedding?
Happy first birthday, Penelope Scotland Disick! Mom Kourtney Kardashian celebrated her adorable 1-year-old’s birthday with an extravagant bash, and you’ll never guess who made an appearance!
Kourtney Kardashian‘s little girl, who turned one on July 9, celebrated her birthday in grand fashion — with a country fair-themed birthday party! No detail was left unfinished, as more than 100 people arrived at Kris Jenner‘s home to celebrate the big day! Even little North West made an appearance!
Penelope Disick’s Birthday Party — Inside Her Lavish Bash
Kris, 57, revealed many of the party’s details on the July 16 episode of her new talk show, Kris. Of the party, the matriarch of the Kardashian-Jenner family told her audience that she received an evite from Kourtney, 34 — with the Jenners’ address on the invitation! While surprised by the location, Kris said that she absolutely loves throwing parties, so we’re sure that the 150 guests had a great time!
Kris also spilled on the theme of the party: a country fair, complete with little animals, including baby pigs and a unicorn! Kourtney chose pretty, girly colors for the occasion, using light pinks, nude pinks, rose and creams for the decorations. Perhaps one of the biggest focal points of the entire party, though, were giant balloons, which Kourtney posted pics with on her Instagram page!
A source told Us Weekly all about the beautiful balloons, which were designed by Geronimo Balloons:
Three-foot balloons with handmade paper frill to match the party colors — light pinks, nude pink, rose and creams. Each balloon takes the equivalent helium of 30 regular size balloons. Prices for similar designs to the Kardashians’ is $150 each.
North West Secretly Attends Cousin’s Birthday Celebration
The birthday party was also attended by one very special guest — baby North West! While the newborn has been spending almost all of her time at home with mom Kim Kardashian and dad Kanye West, she made one of her few outings to celebrate her older cousin’s special day, arriving at Kris’ house completely unseen! While the baby attended the party, she didn’t mingle with too many guests, as an insider told Us Weekly:
[North] stayed in the house because she’s too little to be around that many people. She’s doing great though!
We’re so glad to hear that the entire Kardashian-Jenner family was able to come together for Penelope’s first birthday!
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you surprised that baby North West went to Penelope’s birthday party?

Shailene Woodley, The Secret Life Of The American Teenager star, showed us a grungy, sensuous side of herself that we have never seen before for her latest shoot with Interview magazine. The 21-year-old poses for a bunch of sexy pics that had a more rocker, grungy vibe while dishing to Emma Stone about her hit show, being an environmentalist, health, and her new movie The Spectacular Now. What do you guys think of these sexy pics?
Shailene Woodley Topless For ‘Interview’:
Shailene is photographed in all black and white while wearing a full black ensemble for most — in others, she’s completely topless. When she is wearing clothes, she is wearing all black outfits: a black long-sleeved shirt, a black off-the-shoulder cape, a sleeveless black dress with a cutout on her chest, and slits in the front — and we can’t forget how she looked topless while wearing just a kilt!
Shailene Woodley’s ‘Interview’ Interview:
Believe it or not, Shailene is an environmentalist and health guru. Emma Stone told Shailene that she was fascinated when she came to meet Emma at a rooftop of an apartment in NYC and Shailene was able to point out the names of the greenery up there — how did she know? Shailene said, “I was an environmentalist in high school—or, I guess, a self-proclaimed environmentalist—and I started reading about the food system in America and how it’s owned by all of these corporations. I was on a quest to find out what healthy really meant…So I started researching indigenous people and what their lifestyles were like because I was fascinated by the fact that they could still run in their eighties and still had amazing muscular and nervous systems, whereas in America now, by the time we get to our thirties, it’s really hard for us to lose weight and maintain a healthy body and composition. So I just started adapting my lifestyle to that of indigenous people, and what I realized is that we’re all indigenous creatures on this planet.” Wow, good for you!
Shailene Woodley’s ‘Interview’ Interview:
Since we are seeing all these different sides of Shailene it is so fitting that Emma asked her what she does before she goes to bed every night. She said, “It depends. If I’m having a me night, I might do 15 to 45 minutes of yoga. The thing that’s most grounding for me before bed, though, is when I wash my face. To wash my face and nourish my skin and cleanse myself of everything that happened through the day, and then to sit in bed with my journal or a book of poems or a novel and a cup of tea, is the perfect way for me to ensure a good night’s rest.” We definitely need to take a page out of her book!
We love Shailene’s shoot but we want to hear what you guys have to say! What do you guys think of Shailene’s topless pics? VOTE:
RiRi is at it once again, making a major fashion statement and sending a very strong message with her latest shirt. What do you think of the look? VOTE!
After seeing this look we’re beginning to think Rihanna has a closet full of mini crop tops — in fact, we can’t even remember the last time we saw her in a full shirt! The star was seen leaving her hotel in Manchester on July 16, headed to M.E.N Arena for a concert from her “Diamonds” world tour while wearing a crop top that has the word, ‘Slutz’ plastered on it. Who do you think she was trying to send a message to?
Rihanna’s Slutz Crop Top:
RiRi is known for wearing racy and vulgar graphic tees, like that time she wore this ‘Self-Love’ tee. Due to this, we were not surprised that she was wearing a mini black crop top with just the word ‘Slutz’ on it. The crop top is a parody of famous chip brand UTZ, as the ‘utz’ in the shirt is from their logo and the little girl from their logo is also on the shirt — how clever.
She paired this tight crop top with blue and black high-waisted leather patterned ‘Moto Pants’ from Rag & Bone, a pair of black open toe strappy sandals, a cute white pedi, a backwards snapback, retro sunnies, a gold chain, and a ton of bangles. You can never accuse RiRi of slacking on the accessories, now that’s for sure!
While it’s a little vulgar it’s also kind of funny — and we must say, she styled it to perfection! Although it isn’t a message everyone should wear on their chest we aren’t surprised to see it on the songstress — although we’re wondering just who she had in mind when she wore it!
We want to know what you guys think about RiRi’s shirt – do you guys like her crop top or do you think it’s too vulgar?
How tragic. The autopsy results have been released, and ‘Glee’ star Cory allegedly died from ‘mixed drug toxicity,’ which included heroin and alcohol.
The British Columbia Coroners Service has completed the autopsy of Cory Monteith, and TMZ is reporting that Cory died from a fatal combination of heroin and alcohol. The Glee star was found dead on July 13.
Cory Monteith — Died From Heroin & Alcohol
Cory, 31, died from a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol, the Canadian authorities told TMZ on July 16. The British Columbia Coroners Service says an autopsy and toxicological analysis show that actor died on from a “mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol.”
This is truly devastating news. It had been reported that alcohol and drugs were found in the hotel room he died in.
Cory Monteith Died In Drug-Friendly Area Of Vancouver
Cory was staying at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver where he was found dead, and this area of the city has “an open air drug market.“
A source, who’s familiar with the area, told HollywoodLife.com exclusively:
“Cory’s last known meeting took place at East of Main Cafe (223 E Georgia St., Vancouver) — this is four blocks from Hastings and Main, which is often described as ‘the epicenter of Vancouver’s drug trade.’ The hotel Cory was found in is 10 blocks from Hastings and Main. As a former Vancouver resident, I can tell you this area is terrifying — even during the day! There is an open air drug market and everything from heroin, crack cocaine and crystal meth is on offer. The police control the perimeter of this area, but once you enter, it’s a free for all with users openly shooting up in the streets. Every time I’ve been in that area — even in the daylight — I have seen junkies with needles in their arms and have been offered coke, crystal meth and speedballs (heroin and cocaine mixed). It’s a scary place, but for anyone using or fighting addictions, it’s especially dangerous since it’s nearly impossible to walk through there without being offered drugs.”
The Prince wouldn’t skip out on his plans with friends if Kate weren’t about to give birth at literally any moment. Are his last-minute decisions to stay close to his pregnant wife a major clue about her impending due date?
Prince William Cancels Boys’ Night Out Plans: Is Baby Almost Here?
Prince William canceled Monday night plans just in case his wife, Kate, went into labor, a source told E! News. He is not known for backing out of his plans with friends, so it was surprising and “unexpected” for him to do so this time around, says E!‘s source. Will has expressed that he wants to be around for the birth of his child — so he must be sensing that the time is right.
Prince William Torn Over Leaving Pregnant Kate Middleton’s Side
Initially his office said yes, then said no, and then confirmed that he would be playing. I think he was torn as, clearly, he wants to be with his wife at such an important time. But he was also too aware how much the event raises for charities he is passionate about.
He eventually decided to go on as planned, but not without making sure that a car and police escort were set up nearby to rush him to St. Mary Hospital in London if Kate went into labor.
Will’s reluctance to leave Kate on her own at this time clearly signals that anxiety about her due date is heightening as time passes!
What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Do you think Will is sensing the baby’s arrival?

Find out when your biggest addictions (finally) return to your televisions this fall, then tell us: What will YOU be watching?
Fire up your DVRs, HollywoodLifers, because ABC has just announced its Fall 2013 premiere dates — and we have no idea how we’re going to squeeze all of these shows into our weekly schedule.
Some highlights: Along with the series premieres of Once Upon A Time In Wonderlandand Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the schedule also includes a special two-hour season premiere of Grey’s Anatomy– in which we’ll finally learn the fate of the Chief!
It’s finally official. Three months after ‘The Glee Project’s’ future was first reported to be in jeopardy, Oxygen has decided against ordering a third season, HollywoodLife.com’s sister site TVLine reports.
Oxygen has decided to axe The GleeProject, the reality series that previously catapulted Blake Jenner, Alex Newell, Samuel Larsen and Damian McGinty to the Glee mothership, after two seasons.
‘The Glee Project’ Canceled — Oxygen Cancels Reality Series After Two Seasons
"The Glee Project will not be returning to Oxygen, but we are extremely proud of this series which launched the careers of several talented individuals. The show had so much heart and we thank Ryan Murphy and all of the creative talent who helped make the series a critical darling,” the network announced.
The Glee Project’s future was first reported to be in jeopardy in April, when FOX’s late renewal of Glee didn’t leave the Oxygen series enough time to get a new installment up and running. In turn, The Glee Project wouldn’t be able to deliver a winner in time for the start of the high school musical’s fifth season.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you sad The Glee Project was canceled?
