    Demi Lovato, singer, actress and self-love advocate, wants everyone to love their curves. 


    The 22-year-old took to Instagram on Saturday night to share some words of encouragement with her 18.6 million followers. The star posted a photo of herself, clad in a summer-appropriate watercolor floral onesie, with the caption, "Learn to lurrrrrvveee yerrrrr currrrrvveees. I actually used to hate them... But then a special someone helped me learn how to love them... And he sure loves them ...#squats #COOLFORTHESUMMER." 



    The "Cool For The Summer" singer, who many believe was referencing boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama in her caption, has been very open about her struggles with body image, and often turns to social media to share positive messages. 


    Earlier this month, the former Disney star took to Twitter to shut down body-shamers who criticized her for wearing a revealing bikini top while promoting her new single. 





    Lovato also regularly posts makeup-free selfies, encouraging her fans to do the same. 



    Demi, always keepin' it real.

    We finally know who will be checking into the "American Horror Story: Hotel" next season.


    Actors from both "American Horror Story" and "Scream Queens" joined Ryan Murphy, co-creator of both shows, onstage at a combined Comic-Con panel on Sunday. "AHS" Season 5 cast members Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Evan Peters and Matt Bomer took the stage alongside Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Skyler Samuels, Keke Palmer, Abigail Breslin and Billie Lourd of Fox's upcoming "Scream Queens."


    While Murphy didn't share any new footage from either series, he did reveal a handful of details about the new season of "AHS," according to multiple outlets. We now know that Sarah Paulson will play Hypodermic Sally, Evan Peters is Mr. March, Kathy Bates is Iris and Matt Bomer is Donovan. We also know that all of the above characters, plus Angela Bassett's character, will be evil.


    Although Murphy reportedly didn't say much about how "Hotel" will tie in to the previous seasons of "AHS," which he revealed last year were all connected, he did say that former "AHS" characters will return in the new season.








    Murphy also revealed that Paulson, whose characters have previously survived all four seasons of "AHS," may not survive this year.





    While "Hotel" newcomer Lady Gaga was not at the panel on Sunday, Murphy revealed the story behind her casting. The pop singer apparently contacted Murphy herself and asked if she could play an evil character. His response? "YES," in all caps, according to Mashable. Gaga won't have any singing moments on the horror series, but fashion will be a major aspect of the "Bad Romance" singer's character.





    So far, Murphy hasn't revealed any further details about "Hotel," but we do know it will also star Chloe Sevigny, Wes Bentley, Finn Wittrock, Max Greenfield and Cheyenne Jackson. "AHS" veteran Jessica Lange has already been pretty clear that she won't be returning to the show; however, Murphy reportedly made a comment during the panel that the actress could come back one day, according to E! News.





    FX has yet to release further plot details about "American Horror Story: Hotel," but we have speculated on what the new season could be about, based on previous clues.


    "American Horror Story" returns in October on FX.


    "Scream Queens" premieres on Sept. 22 at 9:00 p.m. ET on Fox.

    All men must die take selfies with Harry Potter.


    The worlds of Westeros and Hogwarts finally crossed paths at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend. Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on HBO's "Game of Thrones," shared a selfie on Sunday of herself with Daniel Radcliffe, "GoT" co-star Hannah Murray (Gilly) and her new "Doctor Who" co-star, Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald):



    I think this photo is gonna make the world implode..... Last night was really great #sdcc2015

    A photo posted by @maisie_williams on



    Williams was at the convention for the "Thrones" panel on Saturday, which revealed little about Season 6 of the show. But the young actress also made an appearance in the first trailer for Season 9 of "Doctor Who," playing a mysterious character. Meanwhile, Radcliffe was in San Diego to promote his new film "Victor Frankenstein" alongside co-star James McAvoy.


    But beyond the fact that Williams and Radcliffe are both from two of the biggest fictional franchises imaginable, the English actors also have something else in common. At last year's San Diego Comic-Con, they both disguised themselves as Spider-Man.


    Now all we need is a Radcliffe cameo on "Thrones." Maybe The Boy Who Lived could help resurrect Jon Snow or at least help give Arya her sight back. (One can dream.)

    The first trailer for "Suicide Squad" is here and it's just as dark and creepy as you'd imagine. 


    The three-minute clip leaked on Saturday following the Warner Bros. panel at San Diego Comic-Con (which means you should watch it before it's gone!). In it, we catch shots of all the main characters in action -- Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn, Will Smith's Deadshot, and of course, Jared Leto's Joker, aka the most anticipated character in the film. 


    Glimpses of Leto's Joker have surfaced online before, but not to this extent. A short video of the actor arguing in character with Harley Quinn hit the Internet in May, but featured no sound. 


    The iconic villain, previously played by both Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger, got quite the makeover for the film -- which didn't sit too well with everyone. Plenty of people criticized the character's new look, which consists of creepy tattoos and dirty-looking grills. But both Nicholson and Ledger are tough acts to follow, so the drastic change makes sense (in our humble opinion). 


    We'll just have to see if Leto can live up to the hype. 


    "Suicide Squad" opens Aug. 5, 2016.

    What would Darla think?  


    Bug Hall, the actor who played Alfalfa in the 1994 remake of "The Little Rascals," looks mighty different from the bow-tied, suspender-wearing, pointy-hair days of yesteryear. BuzzFeed unearthed some recent photos of the 30-year-old and dubbed him a "lumbersexual," due to his long, full beard and possible ability to build a cabin with his bare hands











    Hall didn't seem to mind the attention, and shared a photo of his lush facial hair just for his BuzzFeed fans.

    Considering his crusade for potty parity for all parents, it's not too surprising to hear that Ashton Kutcher is a very hands-on dad. In an interview with The Telegraph, Mila Kunis shared just how involved Kutcher is in parenting their daughter Wyatt Isabelle


    “My husband is an incredibly hands-on dad," she said. "When my child was born, I was breast-feeding and he said, 'That’s your connection, I want to change every diaper.'" Kunis added that he does what it takes to stick to his word, even when they're in public and there's nowhere to change the baby except the ladies' room.  


    The actress also talked about parenting in the public eye, noting that her privacy is "gone." She said, "I’m not complaining, I just don’t like the idea that my child can’t go to the park with her mother. And if she does, then I have to trail a shitload of paparazzi with me." 


    Privacy is also a consideration when it comes to raising kids in today's social media-filled world. “I’m not against technology, if you educate your kids on the ramifications," Kunis said. “Go ahead, post beautiful photos of yourself, maybe don’t post any nude ones.”’ 


     As a family, the trio is a tight-knit bunch, the actress said, adding that they wore matching pig costumes for Halloween last year. 


    It's all adorable fun now, but Kunis joked on "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" that she's prepared to let Kutcher take the reigns even more when baby Wyatt grows to be a moody teenager.


    "That’s not my problem. That’s daddy’s problem."

    If there's one thing we know about Bethany Hamilton, it's that she's not one to shy away from a challenge. Motherhood, however, is a whole new ball game, and for this new mama, the struggle is definitely real. 


    Hamilton has shared a few precious photos of her little one on social media, including the recent one below of stubborn baby Tobias refusing to burp on the beach in Hawaii. 


    "Burping a baby is not as simple as you may think," she wrote on the Instagram post. "My husband is the master and I follow in his footsteps #OneArmCan #burpalldayallnight #SeaWithB." 



    The 25-year-old professional surfer continued to surf through the first six months of her pregnancy, even competing in one of the most challenging women's surf contests in the world.


    Yet while it may seem like the son of a determined surfer is destined for a life in the ocean, according to Hamilton, her son isn't quite ready to embrace the water just yet.


    "Tobias had his first time in the ocean with his papa!!!" she wrote on Instagram.


    "He didn't love it."


    Below, check out what life is like for a baby living in paradise. As far as we can tell, baby Tobias is either always sleeping, at the beach or both.

    Cindy Crawford's look-alike daughter Kaia Gerber is already a signed model, but now the 13-year-old can add actress to her resume. 


    People has confirmed the teen daughter of Crawford and Rande Gerber landed a role in the indie film "Sister Cities," alongside Stana Katic, Michelle Trachtenberg, Jess Weixler and "Pretty Little Liars" star Troian Bellisario. Oscar nominee Jackie Weaver will also appear in the project. 


    The film's director, Sean Hanish, told People, "Kaia blew me away in her audition. Her instincts and maturity are impressive for her age." 


     "Sister Cities" is based on a 2006 play by Colette Freedman. The story focuses on four estranged sisters who come home to face their mother's death together. 


    Hanish continued, "I’m thrilled to cast her [Gerber] and very excited to direct her in her film debut. She has a very bright future."

    More than a year after the limo bus crash that left him in critical condition, Tracy Morgan's recovery looks to be headed in the right direction.


    Fox 5 News anchor Steve Lacy posted on Facebook that he saw the actor and comedian driving a silver Lamborghini through Manhattan over the weekend. "He said he was feeling well," wrote Lacy. "When I said I loved the car he said, 'Thanks,' and that he was being careful behind the wheel."




    Morgan's longtime friend and fellow comedian James McNair died in the June 7, 2014, crash. The accident left Morgan in a coma for two weeks.


    Morgan spoke publicly about the crash for the first time last month in an interview with TODAY.


    "I love comedy. I'll never stop loving her," he told Matt Lauer. "I love comedy and I can't wait to get back to her, but right now my goal is just to heal and get better because I'm not 100 percent yet, I'm not. And when I'm there, you'll know it. I'll get back to making you laugh. I promise you."

    T. Swift is making dreams come true every night of her 1989 Tour. Not only has she been slaying the concert game, but the "Blank Space" megastar remains remarkably grounded and humble all while selling out enormous arenas all over the world.


    Here are 9 times Tay showed remarkable kindness while on the road, on-stage and on the web while touring the globe:



     


    1. That time she surprised a fan by showing up to her wedding. About her marriage and Taylor's appearance, the fan remarked, "My two dreams came true!"


     



     


    2. When she stepped in to give a fan fashion advice for prom on her Tumblr account. (PSA to those who wear ties: Taylor prefers the classic tie to a bow tie.) 



     


    3. Supporting a young fan who asked for Taylor's help in conquering her "bad blood" diagnosis of leukemia in a YouTube video.




     After seeing the video, T. Swift gave a very generous $50,000 gift to help cover her cancer treatment costs. 11-year-old Naomi's reaction video to Taylor's gift is pretty much the sweetest thing ever: 




     


    4. When she went out of her way make it up to a fan who missed her concert due to flight delays. 





    Stephanie took Swift up on her offer, and flew to see Taylor's concert in Dublin several days later. 


     


    5. When she sent an enormous care package to a fan who sent her a message on Tumblr, expressing that she having a hard time.


    In the message, fan Ally Moronese wrote "Life is so hard I don’t know what to do about it. It makes me so sad :( the stuff my brother and I have gone through for years and years with my dad being a horrible person. And now moving is just really emotional and sad for me."


    In response, Taylor sent her a slew of comforting items -- big sweaters, pillows, candles, and a notebook -- and offered her front-row seats to her concert.



     


    6. That day she totally fangirled over her own fan on Twitter, reminding us that YouTube covers can still result in magical things.





     


    7. When she stood up to Apple Music, and successfully convinced the multi-billion dollar company to change their policies on behalf of up-and-coming artists. 


    Swift explained to fans why she made the change-making choice to back "1989" from a new streaming service:



    Apple Music will be offering a free 3 month trial to anyone who signs up for the service. I’m not sure you know that Apple Music will not be paying writers, producers, or artists for those three months. I find it to be shocking, disappointing, and completely unlike this historically progressive and generous company.

    This is not about me. Thankfully I am on my fifth album and can support myself, my band, crew, and entire management team by playing live shows. This is about the new artist or band that has just released their first single and will not be paid for its success. This is about the young songwriter who just got his or her first cut and thought that the royalties from that would get them out of debt. This is about the producer who works tirelessly to innovate and create, just like the innovators and creators at Apple are pioneering in their field…but will not get paid for a quarter of a year’s worth of plays on his or her songs.



     


     


    8. Also, this (supporting female fans by setting a killer example of standing up for feminist issues):





    She posted the above tweet in response to a tweet by @OK_Magazine -- the tweet suggested that Taylor was pregnant, and linked to an article which referred to her almost entirely as "Harry Stiles' ex," and "Calvin Harris' rumored girlfriend." Tay was not about to be defined by the men in her life.


     


    9. Those days when she showed up with a long list of ex-lovers super fab friends, promoting the value of female friendship, and setting the precedent for #squadgoals


     


    She's featured her classic close girl friend crew, invited actresses Emma Watson and Uba Aduza to join her onstage, and recently championed the strong women who have been reppin' the US in sports lately: the U.S. women's soccer team and Serena Williams








    And okay, there was one ex-lover present at her NYC concert, according to several tweet reports from fans -- none other than mister Joe Jonas (whose brother, Nick made a surprise guest appearance on stage at her NYC show).





      


    For the record, these are just a few examples of Taylor's tremendous generosity.


    And the best news of all? T. Swift is just getting started -- she'll be on tour through mid-December, continuing to connect with fans all over the world.

    There are a lot of shitty men on TV. In its simplest form, the so-called golden age of television is basically a timeline demarcated by Tony Soprano, Don Draper and Walter White. The past decade of programming has been colored by a clear fascination with the antihero, but where are all the female counterparts?


    Imagine, if you will, a female version of Tony Soprano. Maybe her name is Antonia and they call her "Toni" for short. She spends her days waddling around in a robe and shoving capicola in her face, while alternately talking about ducks and ordering gratuitously violent murders.  She's had several gumars, who are all, by the way, objectively more attractive than her. She's despicable, but we forgive Toni, because her mom's a real "c" and, hey, she's just clinging desperately to the last strands of the matriarchy!


    Yeah, it's pretty impossible to imagine. The body-centric think pieces alone could fuel a subsection of Jezebel, though there'd be plenty more "problematic" elements than that. The female antihero is, it seems, as difficult to accept as she is to write. There are infinitely more obstacles faced by leading ladies making morally questionable choices while hoping to keep viewers engaged. The gendered likability issue of the small screen has never been so clear as in our willingness to accept serial-philandering murderers and meth cooks, just so long as they're men.



    The most basic obstacle with setting up a female antihero (antiheroine?) is sympathy. It doesn't take much for us to reject a woman as "unlikable." Consider that audiences criticized Skyler White's unpleasant reactions to having a drug lord, murderer husband more than her drug lord, murderer husband himself.


    "There's this weird thing ingrained in our culture that it's no fun to watch a woman out of control. You know, versus with a guy out of control, where the idea is that's just what they do," said "Bridesmaids" director Paul Fieg when discussing the rise of the woman-child. Of course, gaining audience acceptance is far trickier when said woman is not merely lost on the way to adulthood but inherently flawed on an ethical level.


    In crafting a female antihero, the double-standard of likability is then compounded by the limited way we process fictional women. All too often, female characters are denied complexity by both creators and consumers. As "UnREAL" co-creator Marti Noxon put it in a recent interview with The Huffington Post, "A lot of people want to reduce female characters to one thing."


    Given the prevailing mode of watching women on screen, that "one thing" often requires likability, prohibiting leading ladies from being anything but. Combine the lack of nuance with the demand for the sympathetic, and you've got something resembling a sexist algebra equation in which X equals "an almost complete lack of female antiheroes."



    Enter Rachel Goldberg. The protagonist of "UnREAL" and one of the only leading female antiheroes on TV.


    "UnREAL" takes place behind the scenes of "Everlasting" -- a "Bachelor"-style reality TV show, which we can only hope is more morally deranged than its real-life inspiration. After a meltdown on set climaxing in a DUI, producer Rachel is indebted to the show. If she wants her boss, Quinn, to help drop the charges against her, she'll need to deliver her uncanny ability to manipulate participants for yet another season.


    When we first meet Rachel, she is cast as an aesthetic foil to the contestants filling a limo with their ball gowns and blown-out hair. She's splayed on the floor of the car, out of view of the reality show's camera, wearing a messy bun over her slouchy "This Is What A Feminist Looks Like" T-shirt.


    Her ideals, as a women's studies major (and the kind of person who would wear a "This Is What A Feminist Looks Like" T-shirt) are set up in immediate conflict with the job she's forced to do: turning women into stereotypes for entertainment.


    Along with the other producers, she coaxes the participants into temper tantrums, sets the stage for date rape and solicits an abusive ex for a surprise visit. And while she expresses discomfort -- sometimes to convince others, but most often to convince herself that she is not okay with what's going on -- it's clear beneath her scrunched faces and eye rolls that Rachel finds a source of pleasure in the influence she is able to yield on set. 



    "One thing I felt really strongly about is that we knew where Rachel came from," Noxon told HuffPost. "Walter White had cancer, Tony Soprano had a poisonous mother."


    Early on, we get the backstory fueling Rachel's behavior. Weighed down in debt, she's compelled to go home to ask for money. It's there we see Rachel's own poisonous mother figure: a domineering psychiatrist, who perpetually diagnoses her daughter and insists on being able to provide treatment in exchange for the cash.


    "[Rachel] basically suffers from mental Munchausen syndrome by proxy," Noxon explained. "You know, she’s been told her whole life that she’s crazy, incapable and helpless."



    The comparison to Tony is interesting. In "The Sopranos," the groundwork of his mother's impact on him is built gradually. The maternal "explanation" for his behavior is the bedrock of the first season, mounting through several sessions with Dr. Melfi and a plot line revealing Livia's betrayal of her son.


    Noxon and her co-creator, Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, didn't have that kind of time to unpack Rachel on screen. "We really pushed -- and Lifetime was supportive -- of taking Rachel out of the environment in Episode 3," she said. "That way we see, for her, that kind of power that she feels over other women and any kind of control is going to be incredibly seductive. If we didn’t get into the fact that she was literally raised to believe she’s crazy, we would probably not have as much sympathy."


    Noxon also paid close attention to casting, both with Shiri Appleby, who plays Rachel, and Constance Zimmer, in the role of Rachel's boss, Quinn. Noxon felt there was something about both women which would translate through the core of their characters to keep audiences along for the ride.


    "The second part is casting," she said. "We needed people who have a kind of innate goodness to them. You know, you can see it."


    "Constance has this quality where it’s like, 'I know! I just said that! Can you believe I just said that?' Noxon said, giggling over Quinn's more absurd lines. "So, you don’t get the feeling that she’s just the devil. These two women are both strong and good and you feel that. You know there’s something worth debating."



    There are other female characters on TV right now that might be characterized as antiheroes. Noxon noted Katey Sagal's Gemma on "Sons of Anarchy." We also have Annalise Keating ("How to Get Away with Murder"), Piper Chapman ("Orange Is the New Black"). "Nurse Jackie" just ended, but let's count that, in addition to Hannah (or Marnie or basically anyone) on "Girls." 


    Still, these figures are relatively rare. Consider this Hollywood Reporter TV roundup of 18 antiheroes that includes only four women (or three and a half, since Gemma from "Sons of Anarchy" is listed alongside Jax Teller). Or these lists from E! and Moviepilot, which consist of 100 percent men.


    The head of FX, John Landgraf, noted the resistance met by female antiheroes when he famously turned down "Breaking Bad" in favor of greenlighting "Damages."


     "It's fascinating to me," he told NPR, "That we just have really different, and I think, a more rigorous set of standards for female characters than we do for male characters in this society. It's much harder to buy acceptance of a female antihero."



    Fortunately, as Noxon sees it, the industry's approach to female antiheroes is shifting.


    "Not too long ago, I couldn’t have made a show like 'UnREAL,'" she said. "I couldn’t have made a show where these characters are deeply flawed."


    "You know, they’re 'powerful,' they have jobs, they have responsibilities, they’re not thinking about boys all the time and they consider themselves feminists," she continued. "But sometimes they consider getting boob jobs and they work on 'The Bachelor' and they want to be pretty and they want romance."


    It's in understanding that potential for nuance that the greatest female antiheroes (and characters in general) are created.


    "It's such a complicated, interesting time, because we are just as conflicted," she said. "That’s important to me and to Sarah. So, we had this idea of putting these sophisticated women into the world of making reality television, where all of us feel guilty pleasure."


    "It pretty much says it all, I think, about a lot of us," she added. "We aspire to be one thing, and, in the end, we’re in the middle of a nest of conflicts and ideas."

    Days after signing with IMG Models and appearing in Vogue Italia, Cindy Crawford's 13-year-old daughter Kaia Gerber has landed yet another major fashion gig. 


    According to CR Fashion Book, the 13-year-old will appear in the upcoming issue "CR 7" with her brother, Presley and model Garrett Taber




    In an excerpt from the upcoming editorial, Kaia Gerber dishes on getting advice from her mother. "She’s taught me how amazing the fashion world is and how you can apply some of the lessons to your everyday life." Gerber goes on to say, "She didn’t have her mom to tell her anything about it. Having someone to look up to and have that advice is going to be so helpful." 


    Head over to read the rest of the excerpts at CR Fashion Book.

    We have further proof that Maisie Williams, aka Arya Stark, is one of the coolest teen celebs on the planet. 


    Back in June, a young fan named Rachael Wood tweeted at the actress, requesting a quote for her yearbook. She provided no specific guidelines, she just said, "...if you tweet me back I'll make whatever you say my quote." 





    Williams, being the cool person she is, tweeted back with what could go down in history as one of the best yearbook quotes ever. (Aside from "You rock, don't ever change." Thanks "Lizzie McGuire.")





    "Anyone can be killed," is how the "Game of Thrones" actress responded to the odd request. Clearly, she turned to her Stark blood for inspiration. 


    The tweet was brought up during the TV Guide Fan Favorites panel at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, CinemaBlend notes. After she explained its origins, Williams was asked who she would add to her kill list, to which she responded: 


    "And then when I went into secondary school, I just … I started to hate maths because of my teachers. And I feel like that['s] what it is for a lot of people. It’s like, sometimes you don’t get along with your teachers and you start to hate the subjects. It was just like totally what happened with me. So, I’d kill all three of my math teachers … But I wouldn’t actually kill anyone. No."


    So there you have it. Arya Stark hated her math teachers, and Rachael Wood now has the best yearbook quote of all time. Now that's a story for the grandkids.

    Five months after FX first announced Lady Gaga would join the cast of "American Horror Story: Hotel," we finally have our first glimpse, (and we do mean glimpse) of Mother Monster in character. 


    A 10-second teaser (yes, 10 seconds, it's such a tease) released on Monday features the hand of a woman you don't want to mess with, but one we are clearly dying to meet as she rings the hotel's concierge bell.  


    The new teaser comes just two days after the show's Comic-Con panel, where the returning cast members revealed the names of the characters they'll be playing this season. Sarah Paulson will play Hypodermic Sally, Evan Peters is Mr. March, Kathy Bates is Iris and Matt Bomer is Donovan. We also know that all of the above characters, plus Angela Bassett's character, will be evil.


    "American Horror Story" returns in October on FX.

    Yet another actress has spoken out about the gender pay gap in Hollywood.


    Amanda Seyfried told The Sunday Times about a job she was paid less for than one of her male co-stars.


    "A few years ago, on one of my big-budget films, I found I was being paid 10 percent of what my male co-star was getting, and we were pretty even in status," she said.


    Though the "Ted 2" star did not name the movie, she did have a theory as to why she was offered less money.


    "I think people think, because I’m easygoing and game to do things, I’ll just take as little as they offer," she said. "But it’s not about how much you get, it’s about how fair it is."


     The gender wage gap, which has remained fairly stable over the past decade, is certainly alive and well in the entertainment industry. The hack against Sony last year shed light on Hollywood's pay disparity between men and women. Emails revealed that Jennifer Lawrence made less than her male co-stars for "American Hustle." The hack also led to a personal victory in the gender pay battle for Charlize Theron.


    After the hack, Theron reportedly negotiated to get paid the same amount as Chris Hemsworth in "The Huntsman," the upcoming prequel to "Snow White and the Huntsman." The deal was reportedly worth more than $10 million.


    However, it's not always possible for women to negotiate their way into wage equality. As Seyfried told The Sunday Times: "You have to decide if you’re willing to walk away from something, especially as a woman."

    When hip-hop star Future joined HuffPost Live on Monday to talk about his new album "DS2," the rapper had some interesting things to say about his ex Ciara's new relationship with Super Bowl champ Russell Wilson, who confessed last week that he and Ciara were waiting on having sex.

    When host Marc Lamont Hill told Future about Ciara and Russell Wilson's decision to abstain, Future said that while God never told him to wait for sex, Ciara did say she wanted to pray when the deed was done.

    "God told me something else. He ain't tell me to wait. I guarantee you that," Future said. "We prayed afterwards though. After we did it, we prayed. That's a true story."

    Amen.

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Medical examiners found no evidence to prove the allegation that blues legend B.B. King was poisoned before he died of natural causes in May, according to autopsy findings made public Monday.


    Tests conducted after two of the musical icon's 11 adult children said their father had been murdered showed the cause of death was Alzheimer's disease, plus physical conditions including coronary disease, heart failure and the effects of Type 2 diabetes, Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg told The Associated Press.


    Daughters Karen Williams and Patty King had said through their attorney, Larissa Drohobyczer, that King's business manager, LaVerne Toney, and his personal assistant, Myron Johnson, hastened their father's death. Drohobyczer didn't immediately respond to messages Monday.


    Brent Bryson, a lawyer for King's estate, has called the claims defamatory and libelous.


    "Ms. Toney and Mr. Johnson are very happy that these false and fictional allegations that were made against them by certain of Mr. King's children have been dispelled," Bryson said. "Hopefully we can now focus on the body of musical work that B.B. King left the world, and he can finally rest in peace."


    The findings close official investigations of King's death, Fudenberg said.


    Homicide Lt. Dan McGrath said there is no active police investigation.


    The allegations drew intense interest while the daughters led a group of several of King's surviving adult children and grandchildren in an unsuccessful bid to wrest guardianship and oversight of the King estate from Toney.


    Williams, Patty King and daughters Rita Washington and Barbara Winfree had Drohobyczer contest their father's will. They enlisted prominent national attorneys Benjamin Crump and Jose Baez to investigate whether B.B. King was properly cared for before he died.


    Crump, Baez, Williams, Patty King and Winfree didn't immediately respond Monday to messages.


    B.B. King died in hospice care at home in Las Vegas at age 89.


    Washington said she's still upset that no family members were present. But she said she was relieved to learn her father hadn't been poisoned.


    "I'm glad it's natural causes," Washington said. "We just didn't know what was going on and what had happened with our father."


    King's physician, Dr. Darin Brimhall, and the coroner had attributed his death to natural causes — a series of small strokes caused by atherosclerotic vascular disease as a consequence of his long battle with blood sugar fluctuations and diabetes. The medical term was multi-infarct dementia.


    Fudenberg said Monday the autopsy found additional evidence of cerebrovascular disease and mini-strokes similar to those described earlier. "Considering the information available to any clinical physician at the time, multi-infarct dementia was a reasonable conclusion to reach," he said


    Tests didn't detect any substances that might have hastened King's death, Fudenberg said.


    The autopsy was conducted May 24 — 10 days after King died, two days after a public viewing in Las Vegas drew more than 1,000 fans and mourner, and one day after a family-and-friends memorial drew 350 people to a downtown Las Vegas funeral chapel.


    A Beale Street procession and memorial took place May 27 in Memphis, Tennessee, followed by burial May 30 in King's hometown of Indianola, Mississippi.


    Bryson told a probate judge in Las Vegas last month that Brimhall and two other doctors determined that King received appropriate medical and hospice care, and that Toney was fulfilling King's will and wishes.


    Toney worked for King for 39 years and had power-of-attorney over his business affairs. She is named in King's will, filed in January 2007, as executor.


    The value of the estate that hasn't been publicly disclosed.


    Bryson has said it wasn't expected to amount to the tens of millions of dollars suggested during a guardianship fight before King's death.


    Drohobyczer has said she thinks the estate is worth between $5 million and $10 million.

    Former "Teen Mom" star Farrah Abraham is no longer a teen mom. In fact, at 24 years old, she's an erotic novelist with a sex toy line, who dreams of one day being a plastic surgeon. She also must be making some serious bank, because she apparently gave her 6-year-old daughter Sophia S600 for losing her two front teeth. 


    On Sunday, Abraham shared a photo of her daughter flashing her new smile, and in the background a stack of hundred dollar bills (we count six) can be seen on the night stand next to her daughter's bed.  





    All we can say is that kind of cash for teeth exchange sets some serious expectations, and could cause some problems when her friends find out the Tooth Fairy probably won't be quite as generous when it's their turn for a visit.

The video -- which has over 3 million views on Facebook -- shows the toddler calmly playing with his toys on the floor. But when the song starts, he suddenly jumps up and busts a move.


    Smith posted the video with a spot on caption: "When you thought you were done turning up but your song comes on."


    Now watch him nae nae.
