Angelina Jolie on double mastectomy: "My children don't need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer"
Angelina Jolie is known for not holding back when it comes to voicing her opinions, but her latest reveal may be the most shocking of all. In an extremely personal New York Times op-ed out today, the Oscar-winning mother of six confessed that she recently underwent a preventive double mastectomy after doctors told she carried the "faulty gene" BRCA1 and had an 87 percent risk of contracting breast cancer.
Jolie, who lost her own mother to cancer, says she made the drastic decision for the sake of her family and in an effort to "be proactive and to minimize the risk" as much as possible.
Wow ... what an amazingly brave choice on her part!Continue Reading >

MTV is no stranger to awkward moments at their award shows, which is why when Puerto Rican actress Aubrey Plaza interrupted Will Ferrell's acceptance speech at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards last night, it was less than amusing. Plaza had awkwardly gone up on stage as Ferrell was talking after receiving the Comedic Genius Award and tried taking the Golden Popcorn statue from his hands. Ferrell seemed surprised by the interruption but handled the incident like a trooper.
Her actions were reminiscent of rapper Kanye West's arrogant and rude interruption during Taylor Swift's acceptance speech during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. And MTV isn't putting up with ANY of that behavior since the infamous incident and kicked out Plaza for her outburst.

Selena Gomez's break up with Justin Bieber is as publicized as their relationship was and it looks like Selena is maintaining a good sense of humor about it. In a hilarious interview on the Late Show with David Letterman, Selena makes a perfectly timed joke at Bieber's expense after the host made a comment regarding their relationship.

The 22-year-old remembers having to switch schools all the time because she was constantly picked on. In true J.Law fashion, she overcame her fear of bullies and told the publication: "Don't worry about the bitches. That could be a good motto, because you come across people like that throughout your life."
