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!
Last night marked the 39th anniversary of the People's Choice Awards. While you, the fans, voted for all of your favorite performances in Hollywood, we at Joonbug waited for our favorite fashionistas to work the red carpet in dashing ensembles. The great thing about this year's red carpet trends was that...there were no trends! Last night's fashion free-for-all revealed a mix of styles including long white gowns, black cocktail dresses, neon minis, pale hues, metallics, florals, shimmer, and everything in between! We chose a few chic looks to don ourselves from some of our favorite winners. Luckily, designer Vera Wang, who made her luxurious brand accessible to all women by collaborating with Kohl's, has created great options to capture these red carpet looks for less than $100!
Remember the days when John Mayer was talked about on music networks and radio stations for being a talented musician that was able to perfectly blend pop/rock/blues music into one, creating his own unique sound by doing so? Songs such as “Your Body is a Wonderland,” “Waiting on the World to Change,” and “Daughters” garnered him more than just critical acclaim.
They also resulted in winning various prestigious awards musicians dream of winning (i.e. The Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance in 2003,) developing a huge fan base, as well as being played on radio stations all across the nation. John Mayer’s name is still a topic of discussion, but for all the wrong reasons. Rather than people/critics talking about how innovative of a musician he is, he has been stricken with the Kardashian-itis: being talked about because of who he was seen kissing or what female celebrity was caught leaving his hotel room in the A.M.

Jennifer Aniston’s All-Over Firm Body
Jennifer Aniston has one of the best bodies in Hollywood—even at 43 years old! She credits her all-over toned look to yoga where she practices with trainer Mark Blanchard. Yoga is a fantastic workout with perks like strengthening and toning as well as promoting relaxation. If you are in need of balancing the mind and body while getting a sweat in, try Vinyasa or Bikram and you will be surprised as to what results you can achieve.
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.
Well it’s about time!
After quite the career, Ms. Jennifer Aniston is finally getting the recognition she deserves.
Next week, on Wednesday, February 22, Jen will be getting her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Her star is set to be right in front of the W Hollywood Hotel. So exciting!
It may seem hard to believe, but there was a time when socks were scrunched, skinny “jeans” weren’t made of denim (or for women), and Cher Horowitz was idolized by all. Although there is irrefutable evidence proving the '90s were a dark time for America regarding all things fashion, these icons definitely bring back memories of a simpler time (when news came on paper, carrying a cell phone was considered an aerobic workout, and names comprised of a number were not the norm).

Actress Minka Kelly definitely has a lot to be happy about. Not only was she named Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive last October, she also has a thriving career, not to mention she's dating Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter.
Beauty, success, a hot man...no wonder Leighton Meester wanted Minka all to herself in The Roommate.
She has appeared on guest spots on television as well as lead roles in NBC's Friday Night Lights and will be co-starring on ABC's new nadaptation of Charlie's Angel in the fall. As for film, the star, in addition to others, was featured in (500) Days of Summer, starred in The Roommate, and appeared alongside Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston in Just Go With It.
