OMG: Here's What Justin Bieber Was Doing Instead of Attending the 2018 Grammys


Justin Bieber hasn't shown up to the Grammy Awards since 2016, but there was a glimmer of hope he'd be there this year. He collaborated with Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee for the remix of their international hit song, "Despacito". The song was everywhere and it topped the Billboard Hot 100 list for a record-breaking 16 weeks. It was on constant replay because it was a freaking jam. So, you'd think, that Justin would join his fellow collaborators at the award show to perform a song he had helped make so big. But, we were sadly mistaken.

Luis and Daddy Yankee got up on stage and performed the original version of "Despacito" which is entirely in Spanish. The track was nominated for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. Unfortunately, they didn't take home any actual Grammy trophies. But, even with the three nominations it got, still didn't persuade Justin to show up and support all of their hard work.

So, where was Justin? We know he just got back from a super relaxing vacation with his mom, Pattie Mallette. He was also seen recently having lunch with his dad, Jeremy Bieber, and his little brother, Jaxon Bieber. There has been a lot of family time happening lately, but other than that Justin's schedule is pretty much clear so we're not totally sure why he wasn't there. BUT he was spotted by TMZ in West Hollywood on Sunday hanging out with friends after having dinner at Mr. Chow. While the Biebs never won the award for Best New Artist when he could have been up for it, he told the publication he doesn't know but, "it could be" a curse for the artist who do win alluding to the fact that most of the Best New Artists sometimes go under the radar after winning. But, that's all he had to say. Nothing about "Despacito" and nothing about his failure to show.

It's important to note, though, that Luis did ask Justin to perform with himself and Daddy Yankee. He spoke to Entertainment Tonight and said, "Of course we extended the invitation. He's part of the nomination and he helped the song grow even more, and I'm so proud of the job that he did. I'm so proud that he decided to sing most of the song in Spanish... so we're very grateful. He's a good friend, he's a good guy, so hopefully, we'll be able to celebrate together." Justin is reportedly not attending any major public events as he continues to work on his next album. While he hasn't confirmed that, we can only hope that's the case.

Watch the video and check out Justin Bieber forgetting the Spanish lyrics to "Despacito."

The Grammys Fashion Highlights, According to Our Editors

The Grammys red carpet always brings expressive, standout fashion moments from music’s biggest stars. And this year didn’t disappoint. Stars not only had fun with fashion, but many also supported the Time’s up anti-harassment movement by wearing (or carrying) white roses to stand in solidarity and encourage equality. Below we rounded up our red carpet highlights.
Camila Cabello in Vivienne Westwood Couture


Andrea Lavinthal, Senior Style Editor: When you’re ruling not one, not two, but three of Billboard’s biggest charts, you have to bring it to the Grammys, both on stage and on the red carpet. And that’s exactly what Cabello did. Before taking part in a powerful performance of Kesha’s “Prayer,” Cabello turned every head on the carpet in a scarlet Vivienne Westwood Couture gown featuring the designer’s signature corset silhouette. Styled with a dazzling Judith Leiber bag and major Bulgari jewels, the look was pure high fashion glamour. And the singer handled a near wardrobe malfunction like a pro when she paused an interview to adjust the plunging strapless neckline (“hold on, excuse my boob,” she said, turning around to fix the dress).
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend


Brittany Talarico, Senior Style Editor: John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have been hitting the red carpet together for a decade, and each time they step out they manage to look more in love. There’s usually a collective “awwwww” from the style team when when we see them together. John is usually cradling his wife’s bump and they manage to turn award shows into their own date nights. The Grammys was no different. Teigen, who revealed the couple is expecting a son, glittered from head to toe in a silver sequin Yanina Couture dress and Lorraine Schwartz and Ofira jewelry, while Legend looked dapper in a navy tuxedo with a black lapel. They’re what “mom and dad” memes are made of.

Donald Glover


Alex Apatoff, Deputy Style Director: Donald Glover – a.k.a. Childish Gambino – looked incredibly crisp and untouchably cool in his Ermenegildo Zegna Couture white tux (replete with elegantly textured jacquard blazer), finished off with velvet loafers and Tiffany & Co. jewelry. He didn’t add anything else, so I won’t either.

Maren Morris


Kaitlyn Frey, Style & Beauty Assistant: When it comes to red carpet fashion, I can’t help but always fall in love with the glitziest looks, like Maren’s silver crystal-covered Julien Macdonald gown with cold shoulder cutouts. While the Grammys are usually known for stars showing up in next-to-nothing attire, this look perfectly revealed just enough.

Hailee Steinfeld


Colleen Kratofil, Style Writer-Reporter: Just like her dual movie and music career, Hailee Steinfeld perfectly mixed Hollywood glamor with some edgy Grammys touches that made her look my favorite of the night. Her white strapless Alexandre Vauthier gown was sexy and down-right beautiful, but the fact that she paired it with some rock ‘n’ roll elements with her purple knee-high boots and a bold metallic smoky blue eye, really showed how well she embraced the wild and fun Grammys red carpet in a tasteful and classy way.

Lady Gaga


Sharon Kanter, Deputy Style Director: Lady Gaga walked the red carpet first, and no one who came after surpassed this moment for me. Everything about the singer and nominee’s look was on point — from her Armani Privé jumpsuit and dramatic skirt combination (which she removed later after her performance) to her sparkly smoky eye to her laced pulled-back hairstyle. I think it’s because just like her music, Gaga continues to evolve and surprise her fans, and with this look, she shows off her deeply-rooted connections to the fashion world, as well as her ability to still surprise and delight with her red carpet choices. I was completely dazzled.

Janelle Monae


Sarah Ball, Market Editor: I love how defined Janelle Monae’s personal style is — she never departs from it either, which I really admire. Although tonight, I felt like she took a bit of a risk without not looking like herself. The colorful embroidered flowers seemed really fun and bold for her and the fit of this Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo is impeccable — and I just really love a woman in a suit!

Lana Del Rey


Lindy Segal, Style Social Media Editor: It looks like Lana Del Rey is on her way to a very fancy music festival in this starry cream draped Gucci gown, which is precisely what I expect from her, and precisely the opposite of my personal style. And yet, I’m completely drawn to this dress; the embellishments are both pretty and Grammys-appropriate, the high slit is sexy and the halo crown — yes, we’ve got to talk about the crown — just makes me happy in a way I can’t totally explain. The one thing I don’t love about her boho-babe look is the shoes, but I’ll let them slide.

Bebe Rexha in La Perla


Briana Draguca, Style & Beauty Intern: Bebe Rexha surprised me with this look. The singer stepped onto the red carpet in this beautiful La Perla gown that featured intricate beading and tulle accents. The dress perfectly hugged Rexha’s curves but I especially loved the color, which made the look feel even more feminine. On top of the show stopping gown, Rexha also debuted a new short blonde bob that perfectly went with the look.

Eve


Jillian Ruffo, Associate Beauty Editor: There’s nothing I love more than a lady suit on a red carpet. And while the evening’s looks contained a few (Janelle Monae and Anna Kendrick also sported the trend), Eve’s graphic, black and silver bead-embellished ensemble won me over instantly. The androgynous style of the suit, paired with the graphic beaded pattern and her bare skin makes the number chic, sexy and ultra-glamorous all at once.

NFL Pro Bowl descends on ESPN Wide World of Sports this week


It’s a big sports week at Walt Disney World, the ESPN Wide World of Sports is playing host to the NFL’s biggest and most talented super stars in the 2018 NFL Pro Bowl week events and interactive fan experiences. This is the second year the NFL has held its Pro Bowl in Orlando’s Camping World Stadium and the partnership with Walt Disney World’s unofficial ‘fifth gate.’ There’s a lot going on this week, so we’ve included a guide to as much as we can below. Be sure to read all three pages for all the events.

Additional Pro Bowl Week activities will include the NFL Flag Championships and Play Football High School Day; Pro Bowl Skills Showdown; free access to AFC and NFC Team Practices; NFL Pro Bowl Experience, a free, football-themed fan festival; and NFL PLAY 60 events. In addition to youth and high school football competitions the event will invite nonprofit organizations and military personnel to positively impact thousands of local residents, children, and their families.

Thank You, Coach
As part of the “Thank You, Coach” initiative, Pro Bowl players will invite a high school coach, who most impacted their life and NFL career, and a guest to celebrate Pro Bowl Week in Orlando. With the Pro Bowl Giveback Program, players will compete for more than bragging rights – each member of the winning team may apply for a $10,000 NFL Foundation grant to be donated to the high school or youth football program of their choice, help leave a lasting legacy on the community, and increase opportunities for the next generation of football players.

The week-long celebration will culminate with the Pro Bowl game, featuring 88 of the NFL’s best players, on Sunday, Jan. 28 at Camping World Stadium that will air on ESPN, ESPN Deportes, and ABC at a new start time of 3:00 PM ET.

On Friday, Jan. 26, high school coaches will enjoy a special welcome reception, and on Saturday, Jan. 27 at ESPN Wide World of Sports at Walt Disney World, coaches and Pro Bowlers will lead the “Thank You, Coach!” clinic and High School Skills Challenge. On Sunday, Jan. 29, the coaches will attend the Coaches Tailgate at Pro Bowl at Camping World Stadium before kickoff and will be recognized on-field alongside their Pro Bowl player.

2018 NFL Pro Bowl Experience
The NFL Pro Bowl Experience will be open to fans Wednesday, January 24 – Thursday, January 25 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM ET and Friday, January 26 – Saturday, January 27 from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM ET at ESPN Wide World of Sports.

The free-admission, family-friendly football fan festival will bring fans closer to the NFL through interactive games and sponsor activations. New activities to this year’s Pro Bowl Experience include some of the same challenges that AFC & NFC Pro Bowlers will compete in during the Skills Showdown, such as: Kick-Tac-Toe, in which three footballs must be kicked in a row on a giant tic-tac-toe board, and the Best Hands competition to catch as many different passes as possible.

Leading up to Pro Bowl Week, the NFL will launch its official companion app: Pro Bowl – Fan Mobile Pass. It guides visitors through Pro Bowl Week and provides exclusive chances to win prizes, including tickets to the game, autographed footballs, and more. The app will also feature game day content, including real time updates of which players are on the field. Fans are encouraged to register in advance.

An assortment of free fan activities at the 2018 NFL Pro Bowl Experience are detailed below. No tickets are required.

· 40-Yard Dash: Race down the field against your opponents and virtual NFL players on a giant 40-yard long LED wall.

· Airbrush Tattoos: Show your team spirit through NFL and Pro Bowl themed airbrush tattoos and face painting.

· Best Hands: Catch as many different passes as possible like an NFL all-star.

· Family Football Zone – An interactive area for kids and families to play together. Play catch in the field or take part in a range of football and tailgate-themed games.

· Kick-Tac-Toe: Kick 3 in a row on a giant tic-tac-toe board. The Kick-Tac-Toe challenge will also occur doing the Pro Bowl Skills Showdown, where AFC & NFC Pro Bowlers will attempt to do the same.

· Long Snap Accuracy Challenge Presented by Verizon– Test your aim by long snapping footballs through a variety of obstacles.

· NFL Pro Bowl Trophy – Take a photo with the official NFL Pro Bowl Trophy.

· NFL Shop at Pro Bowl – Shop for your favorite NFL and Pro Bowl gear at the NFL Shop trailer located inside NFL Pro Bowl Experience.

The Weinstein Effect Evident In Oscar Nominations


Harvey Weinstein, the ultimate impresario of the Oscars campaign, has again reshaped the Academy Awards — though in a way that he could hardly have anticipated while at the zenith of his power and influence. Related

James Franco, whose acclaimed portrayal of Tommy Wiseau in The Disaster Artist, was bypassed for a Best Actor nod — he won at the Golden Globes and the Critics’ Choice Awards — amid allegations of sexual misconduct and exploitation. Similarly Wiseau, who believed the 2004 cult classic that inspired the film was such a masterpiece that he screened The Room in the window for Oscar consideration, will see

Kevin Spacey’s performance as John Paul Getty was erased from All the Money in the World after actor Anthony Rapp accused the Academy Award-winning actor of making sexual advances when he was 14 years old. At the time, Spacey said he was “beyond horrified” by Rapp’s account, though some 14 others subsequently have come forward with allegations.

Spacey’s eventual replacement in the role, Christopher Plummer, this morning received a nomination for best supporting actor, making director Ridley Scott, the film’s producers and Sony’s risky and expensive decision to reshoot the film a good one.

Kate Winslet may well have been overlooked for her award-winning performance in Wonder Wheel — perhaps because of its association with director Woody Allen. The Oscar-winning director is facing renewed allegations by daughter Dylan Farrow that he molested her in an attic when she was 7, a charge he has repeatedly denied.

A growing list of actors, most recently Colin Firth, have expressed regret for working with Allen.

Critical darling Wind River was similarly snubbed, despite writer-director Taylor Sheridan’s steps to wrest his film from Weinstein’s control. The Weinstein Company had acquired the film last August, but Sheridan and the producers took it back, refusing to allow the profits from a movie — which deals with sexual violence against women on a tribal reservation — to flow to Weinstein.

Weinstein has repeatedly denied sexual misconduct. He was expelled from the Academy’s membership in October after an emergency meeting.

Minnie Mouse Receives Star On Hollywood Walk of Fame


Minnie Mouse, Disney's iconic co-star to Mickey Mouse, is finally getting the recognition she deserves with a new star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame being awarded to the cartoon character on Monday.

Jan 22nd, is a special day for Disney and Minnie Mouse, as it is marks the 90th anniversary of 'Steamboat Willie,' the first of the animated character's more than 70 films and shorts.

In 1978, Mickey Mouse was the first cartoon character to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. That star was awarded to him on 'Steamboat Willie's' 50th anniversary.

Singer Katy Perry will be joined by Walt Disney Co. CEO Robert Iger to speak at the 11:30 am ceremony honoring the animated character.

Minnie's star will be the 2,627th since the Walk of Fame was first completed in 1961. Other illustrious names being added to the Walk of Fame this year include; "Weird Al" Yankovic, Zoe Saldana, and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

‘Unreal’ EPs: Season 3 Will Explore ‘What it is to be a Woman Today’

UnREAL Ep. 210 -  "Friendly Fire"  - Day 06 of 07, June 15, 2016, Surrey, BC, Canada

When “Unreal” returns for its third season next month, it does so with quite a few changes. After last year’s explosive season finale saw Jeremy (Josh Kelly) causing a fatal car accident so secrets about reality dating competition series “Everlasting” wouldn’t come out and shut down the franchise, everyone involved has been lying low for a few months. But now the show is ramping up again, and with that comes a new suitor — in the form of the first female “suitress,” tech giant Serena (played by Caitlin FitzGerald) — along with a new Jeremy who is sober and ready to work behind the camera again, a new on-set shrink Dr. Simon (Brandon Jay McLaren), and most notably a new Rachel (Shiri Appleby), who is determined to live her life from a place of total honesty.

“One of the primary themes of the show from its inception was workaholism and what that’s about, and one of the things we’ve always said about Rachel is that’s one of the hardest things is to deal with herself,” executive producer Sarah Gertrude Shapiro tells Variety. “Having to look at her own life was terrifying and that when the opportunity came up to obliterate herself with work, and that Quinn really needed her, she took it. They have a very codependent relationship, and so that the idea of having a role and a function and being loved and admired for her work and the way she deals with Quinn is very, very appealing.”
Although the “Everlasting” set is a trigger for Rachel, who Shapiro points out is so controlling over a narrative that she never used to be able to tell the truth about even simple things, like what she had for lunch, she starts out completely committed to this new way of life, even when it annoys Quinn (Constance Zimmer) and seems to threaten her ability to successfully do her job. It’s a way for the show to look at addiction and play with the idea of Rachel’s rock bottom, which Shapiro says she still doesn’t think we’ve seen yet.

While recovering from addiction is an everyday process, executive producer Stacy Rukeyser says she believes Rachel is healthier when Season 3 starts than she has been in awhile — but she’s not completely healed, because she is still refusing to look at her role in Jeremy’s actions at the end of last season.
“We deliberately left it open for the audience to make up their minds about, but I believe, and she will tell Dr. Simon later in the season, that she knew he would do something. And I think she has to deal with the consequences of what he in fact did and what it is in her that produced him to do something knowing that the guy was a drunk and had an anger problem and was dangerous,” Rukeyser says. ‘She’s not taking any responsibility for that [and] that’s a lot of what she has to confront. And then she has to unpack the darkness of what got Jeremy to do something to protect Quinn, to protect her family, [as well as] the prevailing darkness that brings her back to this show and gives her a sense of power and agency over people.”

Rukeyser admits that in keeping Jeremy a part of the narrative in the third season, it’s a way to constantly have a physical reminder for Rachel of what she has to face and just how much more she has to get honest about. However, Rukeyser says they are not necessarily looking to redeem him as a character.

“We talk a lot about the corrosive effects of reality TV and the influence it has on our culture and the people who appear on those shows, as well as the people who work on those shows,” she says. “And also he’s another person in this world that has to come to terms with ‘Is this the place I want to be?.”


“Unreal” Season 3 premieres Feb. 26 at 10pm on Lifetime.

These Porg Cookies Are Almost Too Cute to Eat

Whip up some treats inspired by a galaxy far, far away…

To celebrate the opening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, craft these Porg Cookies with your whole family. They’re so adorable and delicious that they’re sure to go fast. So, we recommend sneaking a few extra for yourself.


Ingredients

COOKIES:

• Porg Template
• Cardstock
• Scissors
• 1/2 Cup unsalted butter, softened
• 1 Cup white sugar
• 2 eggs
• 1 Tsp vanilla extract
• 3 Tbsp milk
• 3 Tsp baking powder
• 2 1/2 Cups all-purpose flour
• Circular cookie cutter

ICING:

• 2 Tbsp meringue powder
• 1/4 Cup water (plus more for thinning)
• 4 Cups powdered sugar
• 1 Tsp vanilla extract
• Orange, gray, and white gel food coloring
• Pastry bags and tips
• Offset spatula
• Toothpicks
• Black candies

Helpful Tip
All cutting should be done by an adult.

Directions

1. Print out the porg template on cardstock and cut out your preferred size (it should be similar in size to the cookie cutter).

2. Preheat oven to 375° F.

3. Then, start on the dough. Cream butter and sugar by mixing together.

4. Whisk eggs in a separate small bowl until yolk and whites are combined.
5. Add whisked eggs, vanilla, and milk into butter and sugar mixture, beating together.

6. In a separate bowl, mix together baking powder and flour. Then add it into your wet cookie mix and combine together with a rubber spatula.

7. On a floured surface, roll out cookie dough.

8. Bend the cookie cutter into the shape of the porg cutout. Then use to cut out the cookie dough.


9. Bake on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet for 7-9 minutes. Let cool.

10. Now make the royal icing.

11. In a mixer, whisk together meringue powder and water until foam starts forming. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix for about 2 minutes for the right consistency. If the mixture is too thick, add more water (1 teaspoon at a time).

12. Separate into bowls and add food coloring. Thin the icing with water, until it has reached the desired consistency.

13. Add to piping bags. Then, decorate using the template as a reference. To frost the main shape in white, start with a large tip and place frosting in the middle. Then use an offset spatula to spread to the corners. For the more intricate details in orange and gray, use smaller tips. Make the borders and expand to the middle with toothpicks. Then add dark candies for the eyes.

14. Store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to enjoy the cookies!

REVIEW: “The Masterpiece Kitchen” Food Studio – Epcot International Festival of the Arts 2018

Welcome to a food studio review for the Epcot International Festival of the Arts, taking place in the park all week from January 12th to February 19th, 2018. This review will cover “The Masterpiece Kitchen” Food Studio



The Masterpiece Kitchen

Food:

Charcuterie Palette with Artisan Cured Meats, Nueske’s Smoked Beef and Cheese

• Smoked Salmon Tartare, Caviar, Crisp Lavash and Traditional Accompaniments

• Wild Mushroom Risotto, Aged Parmesan, Truffle Shavings and Zinfandel Reduction (V)

• Triple Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Crunch, Dark Chocolate Sauce and Gold Leaf from our Master Pastry Chef

Beverages:

• Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque Brut Champagne

• Classic Sidecar with a Chocolate Twist

• The Meeker Vineyard Winemakers’ Handprint Merlot, Sonoma County, CA

• Pinord La Dama Reserva Familiar Brut

• Pinord La Dama Reserva Familiar Brut Rosé

• Silverado Vineyards Chardonnay

Charcuterie Palette with Artisan Cured Meats, Nueske’s Smoked Beef and Cheese $14.00



A solid charcuterie board with lots of different flavor profiles. We enjoyed each of the items presented: The cheeses were supreme and the meats were on point, except for the pâté near the back of the plate. Similar to the situation in France, this one just didn’t match any of the other flavors presented and ended up just being bad. $14.00 for this dish seems a bit expensive, but they’re fresh-slicing the meats for every order, like how the Spain booth originally served the charcuterie in a cone from Food & Wine in 2017.
Smoked Salmon Tartare, Caviar, Crisp Lavash and Traditional Accompaniments – $12.00


The smoked salmon tartare is a solid dish and will certainly appease anyone who enjoys such things. It really has a really amazing flavor palatte and if you have never had caviar or salmon tartare, this is a rather nice dish to try them on.

Wild Mushroom Risotto, Aged Parmesan, Truffle Shavings and Zinfandel Reduction (V) – $9.00


This is my second favorite dish of the entire Epcot International Festival of the Arts, so much so that I wish I could order a full-sized entree featuring it. The cheese and risotto blend together perfectly, and the mushrooms were very flavorful, proving especially tasty when soaked into the risotto.

Triple Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Crunch, Dark Chocolate Sauce and Gold Leaf from the Master Pastry Chef – $9.25


One of the better desserts of the event, the triple chocolate mousse features distinct flavors stacked on top of each other for a delicious combination. It is also particularly photogenic, if you are into that sort of thing…

Classic Sidecar with a Chocolate Twist – $9.25



If you enjoy a good Sidecar, this won’t disappoint. For those unaware of the ingredients:

The sidecar is a cocktail traditionally made with cognac, orange liqueur (Cointreau, Grand Marnier, Grand Gala or another triple sec), and lemon juice. In its ingredients, the drink is perhaps most closely related to the older brandy crusta, which differs both in presentation and in proportions of its components.

About half of our group liked this and half did not, so your results with it may vary. The chocolate twist is a nice touch.

New Area Soundtrack debuts at Disney’s Hollywood Studios



The next time you visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios you won’t see the newest update to the park, but you will hear it. The park has updated the background music soundtrack to match the tone and story of the park’s updated narrative. Just like a film soundtrack, a theme park’s music is key to providing a complete experience for the guest.

At the park’s main entrance, Disney has shifted to big band arrangements of familiar Disney tunes to get your day started off right. After you enter the park, the music transitions to popular songs from the 30s and 40s, also in the big band style that comes to a crescendo as you approach the Chinese Theater.

Throughout the park, the music complements each area’s setting and time frame. From brassy horns near Echo Lake and jazz at the new BaseLine Tap House, to the sounds of live concert performances outside Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, it’s music to your ears.

“As Imagineers, we always look for ways to enhance the story we are telling our guests, and the music in our parks is a powerful tool we use to ground the story in a time and place,” stated Alex Grayman, art director, Walt Disney Imagineering. “At Disney’s Hollywood Studios guests can experience their own adventures and music lends an air of authenticity by adding detail in each immersive setting.”

According to theme park design tenets, background music is one of the key elements that unifies different themed areas. It serves the unconscious demands of the guest to have all five senses match the experience their eyes are delivering to them.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios will see a lot of changes over the next few years as a new Mickey Mouse theme attraction opens, plus two whole new lands debut – Toy Story Land and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. When you visit, be sure to open your ears and well as your eyes and let us know what you think of the park’s new soundtrack.
