One of Disney's most mysterious and menancing characters now has her own movie.
The preview for 'Maleficent' just premiered online today sending the Twitterverse into overdrive. The amazing and dynamic Angelina Jolie steals the spotlight in this minute and a half teaser for the new movie and not only did she nail the role of Maleficent, she sends chills down our spin as we anticipate this Blockbuster coming to theaters Summer 2014.

Forbes has named Jay Z and Beyonce as the highest earning celebrity couple with estimated earnings of $95 million between June 2012 and June 2013. Their earnings come from their albums, tours and other business deals such as Jay Z’s affiliation with the Brooklyn Nets.
Beyonce’s Mrs. Carter world tour grossed an average $2 million a night, while Jay Z’s Watch the Throne Tour with Kanye West grossed an average $1.4 million a night. Jay Z also had to sell his share of the Brooklyn Nets because he started his own sports agency, Roc Nation Sports.
Less than two weeks ago, Forbes released its annual list of the highest paid actors; a list which also includes the names of the top paid ladies in the industry! Not surprisingly, after calculating the amount of money actresses made from June 2012 to June 2013, the actress who lands the number one spot is none other then Angelina Jolie. The stunning actress racked in about 33 million dollars this past year--a stargerring 13 million more than she did last year!
Quick, there's no time to think. You have one minute to decide. If you think too slowly, you may end up dead. If you think too fast, you may make the wrong decision.

In honor of World Refugee Day, the mPowering Action mobile app will let you know just how this feels by putting you in the shoes of somebody who encounters these kinds of decisions everyday.
Brad Pitt is the new face of Chanel No. 5 and there has been a lot of buzz over the respective ads as Pitt's the first male to represent the iconic brand's No. 5 scent.
Joining Marilyn Monroe, Nicole Kidman and Keira Knightley, as a spokesperson, Pitt brings an air of mystery and smolder to the black and white commercials. "It's not a journey. Every journey ends, but we go on," Pitt says in a voice-over as a nature scene is depicted on screen with a pretty woman, then a city scene. "The world turns, and we turn with it. Plans disappear, dreams take over."
Taking home a rumored paycheck of over six-million dollars for the ads, Brad Pitt, at 48, shows us "sexy" has no boundaries. With over 4-million hits on you-tube, his Chanel ad has both the fashion set and the world at large taking notice. "But wherever I go, there you are," he says. "My luck, my fate, my fortune. Chanel No. 5, inevitable."
Some say that George Clooney would have made a better choice. What do you think?! Is there ever such a thing as too much Brad Pitt?

Angelina Jolie? Julia Roberts? Jennifer Lawrence? What do all these A-list actresses have in common?
None of these ladies are highest paid actress in Hollywood.
Who is you ask?
Well that would be none other than Twilight’s leading lady – Kristen Stewart.
Forbes reports that between May 2011 and May 2012 the starlet earned a whooping 34.5 million dollars. At 22 Kristen Stewart is the youngest woman on the list, the next youngest is Kristen Wigg at 38.
Glamour has announced their best dressed women of 2012 including 50 A-listers, from socialites, to musicians, to actresses and models. All were handpicked off of the fashion-forward apple tree and given a thumbs up for the attire they have sported so far this year. Some of the women are more obvious choices like Angelina Jolie and Kate Moss; however, Glamour also chose peeps that have made some questionable fashion choices in the public eye. We here at Glam Damn It have a few we’d like to applaud, and other’s that, well, we just keep getting second-hand embarrassment for- as far as their fashion sense goes!
We love Chelsea Handler. How could you not? Her deadpan sense of humor, brutal honesty, and couldn't-give-a-sh*t-what-you-think-attitude are just some of her endearing qualities. Sure, she's famous and rich and ridiculously successful, but most of all she's real. In Hollywood, that's hard to come by.
In her latest interview with MORE magazine, Chelsea reveals she rekindled her relationship (yay!) with hotelier Andre Balazs in February after splitting last year. She tells MORE, "My boyfriend, André...We just got back together literally yesterday. We had dated for nine months, a long-distance relationship with all the stresses and traveling and running around. It wasn’t a real life; we weren’t living together." She elaborates, “So, André came to me yesterday and said, ‘I think we have to try to make this work again.’ And I agreed because we’re still madly in love, and he has done a lot of the things I’ve asked him to, and I’ve done a lot of the stuff he’s asked me to. It’s just a matter of understanding each other better — getting to know what the other person’s needs are and not basing all your behavior on your own desire.”
She also drops a few bombs on everyone's favorite ice queen, Angelina Jolie, "You just know as a woman, when you see another woman, if that's a woman you can trust," said Handler, referring to Jolie as the "opposite of a girl's girl," and not "someone I would have a close friendship with." Handler, who is famously close with Jennifer Aniston had previously called Jolie a "home-wrecker" and has since refused to apologize for it. (Gotta love how Chelsea sticks to her guns though!)
The Middle East situation may remain unresolved but this week the unthinkable had happened. After years of unwed bliss, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have suddenly announced they’re engaged to be married.
“Yes, it’s confirmed,” Cynthia Pett-Dante, Pitt’s manager, told USA Today. “It is a promise for the future, and their kids are very happy. There’s no date set at this time.”
Six kids later, Brad has finally decided to put a ring on it. Beverly Hills jeweler Robert Procop confirmed that he helped Brad, 48, design a custom diamond engagement ring for Angelina, 36.
