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."

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.
