Lupita Nyong'o has been named People's Most Beautiful Person for 2014. The gracious 31-year-old says she "never dreamed" she'd win the title, and calls it "exciting" and "a major, major compliment." But she's most happy "for all the girls who would see me on the cover and feel a little more seen," she says. She recalls that growing up, after having been born in Mexico and raised in Kenya, she thought "light skin and long, flowing, straight hair" was what it meant to be beautiful, because that's what she saw on TV. She says happiness is the most important thing. She adds, "My mother always said I was beautiful. And I finally believed her at some point."
"Bachelorette" contestant Eric Hill died yesterday in a paragliding accident in Utah. Eric won the first one-on-one date with the current Bachelorette Andi Dorfman.

Chris Brown will be in jail at least until June, after his latest bid for freedom was denied. Brown, who was jailed last month after getting kicked out of rehab, was flown to Washington D.C. and kept jailed as he awaited trial in his assault case. The trial was supposed to start yesterday, but was postponed until June. Brown asked the judge in the Rihanna beating case to release him in the meantime, but the judge shut him down. Brown will soon be flown back to L.A. where he'll remain in jail until June at the very least. If Brown is convicted in D.C., the judge in the Rihanna case could violate his probation and sentence Brown to four years.

A source said Jay Z would be there if it wasn't going to be such a public event, but neither Bey or Jay wants to end up on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."

They are: An elderly Vegas burlesque dancer, a Jewish bar mitzvah emcee, a Craigslist clown, a creepy animal trainer and a princess with a Valley Girl accent.

Everyone's so excited for a Beyonce and Jay Z summer tour, but it may not happen now and I blame Blue Ivy. She wants a baby sister or brother and it looks like the Carters are ready! A source says they've been trying since February, and her friends are convinced she's already pregnant. They said the same things that happened during her pregnancy with Blue Ivy are happening again. She's letting her hair go natural, her diet's changed, she's always blushing and giggling. Another source said, "It's so obvious!" We may have to wait for another big award show for Bey to confirm this.
Scarlett Johansson goes full-frontal in her new movie "Under the Skin", and a nice, relatively clean set of pictures just hit the web.

The movie hit theaters in limited release earlier this month.
Not all actors get along. I guess that's why they're good actors. But some of them have such a horrible time with each other that they vow to never work together again. Here's a list of a few of these strained relationships:
-James Franco and Tyrese: Tyrese couldn't stand Franco's "method acting" on the set of the 2006 movie "Annapolis". It got so bad that Franco would hit him for real during their boxing scenes.
-Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj: Their feud on "American Idol" was pretty legendary, and it really dragged the show down.
-Shia LaBeouf and Alec Baldwin: When they tried to do a play together, it never even got out of rehearsals. They locked horns from the get-go, and Shia was eventually fired. Since LaBeouf isn't famous anymore, don't anticipate a reunion.
-Lindsay Lohan and America Ferrera: When Lindsay made a guest appearance on "Ugly Betty" in 2008, she brought all her usual baggage and bad behavior with her. She was supposed to do six episodes, but it was cut to four.
-LL Cool J and Jamie Foxx: During the filming of "Any Given Sunday", LL was so intense during a fight scene with Jamie that he kept hitting him even after the director yelled cut. So Jamie called the cops on him. But they later reconciled.
-William Baldwin and Sharon Stone are no strangers to controversy. When these two starred in "Sliver" together, there was so much tension off-screen that Sharon bit William's tongue and he was unable to talk correctly for a few days.
