Roseanne Barr Has ‘No Regrets’ About Voting for Trump — but May Run for President Again Herself

Roseanne Barr has never been one to shy away from what’s she’s thinking or what she believes in.

“I’ve learned that there’s a big difference between public and private,” Barr, 65, tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s issue, on stands Friday. “I always walked a line between those two things, but I think it’s better to just put everything out there.”

With 35 years in show business, the comedian has found herself at the center of plenty of controversies, divorces, mental illness woes and family strife. And while she admits that she may have chosen to do things differently, she doesn’t regret a thing.

“I’m smarter now,” she says. “If I was as smart then as I am now … well, that’s not possible. I don’t regret anything. All those good stories, it all brought me here.”

And she’s used to taking the heat (in 1990 George H.W. Bush called her rendition of the national anthem at a baseball game “disgraceful”). “It comes with the territory,” she says of being slammed by opponents. “Like free drinks. It’s worth it.”

Barr, who currently splits her time between Hawaii, Los Angeles and San Francisco, made a name for herself an early age.

From 1988 to 1997, Roseanne — a groundbreaking sitcom about a blue-collar family — made her very famous and exposed her volatility, rocky personal life and political views. Now, with the Roseanne revival in full swing on ABC, Barr is ecstatic that the show will continue to touch on modern-day topics.

“It’s important to talk,” says Barr, whose namesake character voted for President Donald Trump.”Now, it seems like every topic is being discussed, and I’m happy with that.”

A longtime political progressive, Barr campaigned for the Green Party presidential nomination in 2012, but in 2016 she voted for Trump to “shake up the status quo.”

“I think we need to converse more, but more than anything we need to get involved and run our government for ourselves instead of sitting back and wanting somebody else to do it,” she says.  “Even voting isn’t enough. You have to be involved. I talk about this with my grandkids – you have to get in there and get your hands dirty if you want things to go the way you want them to go. We’re lucky in this country that we can do that. We can really get our hands dirty and put our big collective shoulders to the wheel and change and fix things. I think that’s what’s exciting about our country right now.”

“People are mad,” she adds. “But just being mad doesn’t do anything. You’re just a toad. But if you’re mad and that propels you to get involved to run for office — that was a lot of the reason I ran, just to show other grandparents. We’re the most educated, rich generation that ever was, so if we can’t do it, nobody can. I like to see that.”

And while Barr is currently enjoying her life in Hawaii with her boyfriend of 15 years, Johnny Argent,  and spending time with her five kids and six grandchildren, she says running for president again is “never off the table.”

“I’m going to keep running until I win,” she says.

Roseanne airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Vanderpump Rules’ Lala Kent Tones Down Plastic Surgery After Comparing Herself to a ‘Walking Cat-Duck’

The Vanderpump Rules cast rarely holds back. Whether they’re admitting their last hook-up or showing their plastic surgery results on-air, they remain the most candid cast on reality TV. And Lala Kent just opened up about the latter when she revealed why she’s taking a break from getting injections.

Even though she “loves” plastic surgery (and admitted to getting her breasts done) she says she needs to cool off on a few procedures. “I feel there have been times where I completely over-do it,” she told PEOPLE during our “5 Questions” video series, above.

“So I’ve had every part of my face injected,” Kent revealed. “The things I’ve decided to stop doing is the filler in the cheekbones, the Botox above the eyebrow and the lips because I just feel like I’m a walking cat-duck. It looks like a cat and a duck had a baby and that’s me.”

The only places she will get injected now are her jawline, chin and forehead. “But hey, if you like injections and you like plastic surgery I feel like, if you feel comfortable and you feel beautiful, than do you boo.”

All season, Kent has been spreading this strong message of body positivity every time she’s on screen. Whether she’s helping Ariana Madix work through body image issues or pumping up her friends when they were trying on risqué outfits, she’s been spreading good vibes wherever she goes. So how can we channel Kent’s confidence everywhere we go?

“I think just sitting there and going, ‘You know what, this is my body and I love it and I could change it tomorrow or I could leave it the way it is and I just think women are gorgeous,’” she said. “The female body, there’s nothing hotter. So reveal that.”

In the video, above, she talks about her most extravagant shopping spree at Gucci, the best item her boyfriend, Randall Emmett, ever gave her (you know it includes something about his private jet.) But the one beauty product she can’t live without is surprisingly less extravagant — a lipgloss from her Give Them Lala Beauty makeup line.

(She actually had the $ 16  “Mistress” shade (available for pre-order) with her while filming this interview!)

Vanderpump Rules season 6 premieres Dec. 4 at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.

Kim Kardashian West Defends Herself Against Mommy Shamers Over Son Saint’s Car Seat: He ‘Weighs More Than North’

Kim Kardashian West is fighting back against mommy shamers.

On Thursday, the reality star addressed some of the recent online attacks directed at her about the way she has been parenting son Saint, 20 months, and daughter North, 4, via a video on her website.

The mom of two said that one of the photos she posted on Facebook of her younger child caused a whirlwind on social media because Saint was not rear-facing in his car seat.

“What people didn’t know is that Saint is now the weight and height requirement to sit forward-facing,” Kardashian West, 36, says in the video. “Saint actually weighs more than North, if that is believable.”

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, parents are advised “to keep their toddlers in rear-facing car seats until age 2, or until they reach the maximum height and weight for their seat.” In the state of California, children under 2 must use a rear-facing seat unless they are at least 40 inches tall and weigh at least 40 lbs.

In the same video, Kardashian West also addresses claims that she has “obsessive plans to build empire.”

“I love her experiencing my life and what goes on. But I also love her having such a childhood life,” the mobile mogul tells her viewers of her daughter. “Whatever she wants to do I’ll support that. No matter what it is.”

Kardashian West admits that she does have an expensive diaper bag for Saint, though — which cashes in at a staggering $ 23,000.

The large tote is an old Birkin that she’d initially wanted “so badly” for herself, but was too big for her day-to-day, so she decided it would be “perfect” to use for Saint, she explains.

“It was my first Birkin bag that I ever bought and you would never really buy that huge size,” says Kardashian West. “But that’s all they had and I just wanted one so badly. I’d saved and saved and that’s all they had and I took it and I could never use it.”

She adds, “When I got pregnant I was like, ‘Perfect, I’ll use this as a diaper bag.’ “

Parents of Alleged Rape Victim Sue U. Alabama After She Kills Herself: ‘Tragic Yet Preventable Situation’

Megan Rondini was a 20-year-old premed student at the University of Alabama in July 2015 when her life changed.

That’s when Rondini, a junior, told friends that she had met a man at a popular bar in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. At some point in the evening, she alleged she was sexually assaulted at his home, possibly after being drugged.

According to her parents, Rondini went into a downward spiral after the alleged assault. They say she suffered depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. She withdrew from the University and returned home to Texas. In February 2016, she hanged herself.

Now Rondini’s parents have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against several people who they say failed her daughter. In the lawsuit, obtained by PEOPLE, Michael and Cynthia Rondini are suing their daughter’s alleged rapist, two university employees, the Tuscaloosa County sheriff, a sheriff’s deputy, and a sheriff’s office investigator.

The complaint alleges that the university did not give Rondini adequate psychological treatment and support after the incident. The suit says that specific University employees “deliberately and repeatedly denied services and mishandled accommodations with hostility.”

The suit also claims that the sheriff’s office inadequately pursued the investigation, and were sympathetic towards the alleged rapist rather than their daughter. The suit also claims that authorities focused on some of Rondini’s actions, including taking a handgun and cab fare from her alleged attacker’s home.

The Rondini’s attorney, Leroy Maxwell Jr., did not return PEOPLE’s call for comment, but told AL.com that the family hopes this lawsuit will prevent other families from going through the same thing. “The Rondini family is not in this for the money, they are only interested in shining a bright light on a tragic yet preventable situation,” Maxwell said in a statement. “The court will determine if this case rises to the level of punitive damages.”

Meanwhile, several entities are working together to strengthen their support of sex assault victims. The university is partnering with the nearby hospital, the District Attorney’s office and law enforcement to establish two victim advocacy programs to care for sexual assault victims. The organizations also said in a statement that they are retraining their staffs.

The University of Alabama has defended its actions. “When Megan went to the hospital, a university advocate met her at the hospital to provide support and stayed with her throughout the examination process,” the school said in a statement. “Megan also received information from university representatives regarding services available to her on campus, including counseling through the university’s Women & Gender Resource Center.”

The alleged attacker has not been charged with any crime. He and his lawyer did not return PEOPLE’s calls for comment.

This Woman Shared A Video Of Herself ‘Jiggling For Joy’ For The Best Reason

Kate Speer wanted to let out a little jiggle ― so she did. 

On May 24, the body positive and mental health advocate posted a video on Instagram which shows herself dancing around ― or as she calls it in the video “jiggling for joy” ― in a bikini and a neon visor.  

“Woooo! It’s hump day and I’m doing a jiggle for joy!” Speer yells as she jumps into frame. “This is your weekly reminder that… you are fabulous.” 

In the caption, Speer wrote: 

I’ve been struggling with my beautiful bod this week (and note, I know I have a thin-privileged, able-privileged, beautiful bod even if I can’t always feel it to be so) and beating it up in my mind and trying to suffocate it with binging.

So, today, I’m posting this even though it is terrifying me to do so (yup, deleted it 7 times).

… My body is MORE than its appearance. My body is NOT my value. My body is simply the vessel for my god damn fabulous self. And no matter what my emotional mind thinks or others say, MY BODY IS PERFECT. MY BODY IS WHOLE. MY BODY IS BEAUTIFUL. AND, MY BODY – IN ITS ENTIRETY- IS WORTHY OF LOVE.

According to Speer’s personal website, she survived a misdiagnosis of bipolar disorder at age 21 and has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals. She’s struggled with self-harm, suicide, PTSD and an eating disorder her entire life. 

“I am here to dance away my PTSD demons, find light in the darkness and celebrate it all no matter if it makes sense or not,” Speer wrote on her website. “Mostly, I am here to love, get silly, find gratitude and spread as much light as I can while still on this planet I have the privilege to call home.”

Miss USA Says She Actually Does Consider Herself A Feminist

Miss USA is a feminist. 

On Sunday night, Miss District of Columbia Kára McCullough was crowned Miss USA 2017. The 25-year-old government scientist ― dubbed by pageant officials as “one of the most intelligent contestants in recent memory” ― came under fire for some of her comments about health care and feminism during the Q&A portion of the program. 

McCullough referred to health care as a “privilege” not a right in response to one question and, later, told the audience she doesn’t consider herself a feminist when asked if she considered herself one.

“I don’t really want to consider myself ― try not to consider myself like this diehard, you know, like, ‘Oh, I don’t really care about men,’” McCullough said. “But one thing I’m gonna say, though, is women, we are just as equal as men when it comes to opportunity in the workplace.”

Watch her full response below.

In an interview with Cosmopolitan published Tuesday, McCullough clarified her comments on both feminism and health care. She said that it can be very difficult to get your full opinion across when you only have 30 seconds to answer such in-depth questions.

“If it were up to me that would have been a four-hour long discussion [about healthcare]… If I have the opportunity just to clarify, I would definitely love to let people know that, yes I am privileged to have health insurance — it’s a privilege for me, and I’m thankful for that,” she said. “But I also do believe health insurance is a right for everyone.”

McCullough also added that she’s “all about women’s rights.”

“Yes, I would have to say I am a feminist,” she said. “… And you know, the word [feminism] can carry different connotations [depending on what] generation you come from, or what background, but I don’t want anyone to think I’m not an active [supporter of] women’s rights. If anyone wants to challenge me on that, please call me.”

Back to back, queen to queen. DC is your #MissUSA 2017.

A post shared by Kára McCullough (@missusa) on

McCullough told Cosmo that she hopes to promote science and education with her new platform. The newly crowned Miss USA holds a degree in chemistry with a concentration in radiochemistry from South Carolina State University.

“I run after-school programs, and tutoring sessions and symposiums. It’s about any or all of the sciences, although I am biased; I love to see people major in chemistry ― because the numbers [in that field] are so low,” she said. “I was actually the only person in my class to graduate with a degree in radiochemistry, and so every summer I had a phenomenal internship and I got paid! That’s why I always try to encourage students to find joy in science, because the opportunities are endless.”

Head over to Cosmopolitan to read the full interview.

SPECIAL TIP UPDATE!

Kristen Stewart Called Herself ‘So Gay’ On ‘SNL.’ Here’s Why It Matters.

Last night’s episode of “Saturday Night Live” was must-see TV for a number of reasons: The Grim Reaper was tapped to play Steve Bannon, Melissa McCarthy showed up and delivered a blistering, pitch-perfect portrayal of White House press secretary Sean Spicer, and host Kristen Stewart said the F-word on live TV during her monologue.

But there was another equally remarkable, though admittedly quieter, moment in the first five minutes of the show that you might have missed: Stewart, for the first time ever, publicly used the word “gay” in reference to herself (see the above video at the 2:26 mark).

Stewart’s sexual identity has been the subject of rumors for years. It’s difficult to avoid speculation about your private life when you’re not just famous but also one-half of one of the most famous couples in the world, as Stewart was when she dated “Twilight” co-star Robert Pattinson for several years. But even after that relationship ended, Stewart was still dogged by the press thanks to her involvement with a number of queer women in the entertainment industry, including Alicia Cargile, singer Annie Clark, who is better known as St. Vincent, and the woman she’s currently dating, model Stella Maxwell

To her credit, Stewart wasn’t exactly secretive about her relationships. In a 2016 interview with Elle UK, the actress used the word “girlfriend” to refer to Cargile, her partner at the time. She also said that “dating a girl” forced her to be more open about her relationships than she was when she was dating a guy. “To hide this provides the implication that I’m not down with it or I’m ashamed of it, so I had to alter how I approached being in public,” she said, adding, “It opened my life up and I’m so much happier.”

But for all of her candor, Stewart had never used the word “gay” ― or any other label ― to identify herself until last night. And really, that’s fine. In fact, it’s very much on trend with how other young people think about their sexuality. A 2016 survey found that 35 percent of millennials identify as something other than exclusively heterosexual (and a whopping 52 percent of individuals between the ages of 13 and 20 reported the same) but didn’t necessarily use a term like “gay” or “bisexual” or “lesbian” in reference to themselves.

Many people find these labels to be less necessary than they once were. As queer people become more and more integrated into mainstream society, thanks to changing cultural norms triggered by things like marriage equality and higher visibility in the media, many feel less of a need to identify as any one thing ― or to talk about it in any kind of public way, like a splashy tell-all interview. But labels can still be hugely useful, not only for individuals to orient themselves within a community, but also as a way to continue to increase that aforementioned visibility and push the LGBTQ movement forward, especially in times of political and cultural uncertainty, like now.

When one of the biggest movie stars of the last 10 years refers to herself as “so gay” on one of the most-watched late-night television shows on the air, it forces people to reconfigure how they think about what it means to be “gay” and who and what that term includes. Suddenly, anyone who only knew Stewart as “that girl from ‘Twilight’” and “Robert Pattinson’s ex girlfriend,” is confronted by her sexuality in a new and startling way, and it upends assumptions about the community, which is exactly why coming out is still so crucial.

It should be noted that Stewart’s “so gay” comment was made in reference to ridiculous tweets President Donald Trump once sent about her relationship with Pattinson: 

And, yes, the phrase was delivered with more than a hint of sarcasm and a certain degree of exasperation, which seemed to be leveled at Trump but also maybe at the world’s obsession with her sexuality. And that’s fair. It can’t be fun having your every move photographed and dissected. But in an era when LGBTQ rights are currently at risk in new and frightening ways, public acts of solidarity with the community, including coming out, are more important than ever.

It should also be noted that Stewart’s “so gay” comment doesn’t necessarily mean that she literally identifies as gay. She did date Pattinson, someone who, as far as we know, identifies as male, which may mean she identifies as bisexual or pansexual or sexually fluid or in some other way than “gay,” which is traditionally thought of as being sexually attracted to someone of the same gender. Perhaps she chose that phrase because it packed the most punch and would be the most instantly recognizable to those watching the show ― and because it’s probably the term most people have used behind her back ever since she started dating women. But she also may have decided at this point in her life that it’s the term that feels the most appropriate. We just don’t know.

Regardless, I had to catch my breath when I heard her say it last night. I’m proud of Stewart for standing up and joining the community in a way she hadn’t before, especially at a time when our community is hurting and scared. Coming out doesn’t happen just once and it’s rarely easy. Because heterosexuality is still the assumed default orientation in our society, every time a queer person meets someone new, there’s the chance they’ll be required to explain who they truly are, and in that moment exists the radical opportunity to challenge and change minds. Last night I believe Stewart probably did both, and I think we’re all a little bit better off because of it.

The Pro Files: How Jo Malone Reinvented Herself After Leaving (then Coming Back) to Fragrance

Lime Basil & Mandarin. Pomegranate Noir. Mimosa & Cardamom. These fragrances, among countless others, have become cult favorites among loyal Jo Malone London lovers, otherwise known as self-proclaimed “Maloniacs.” But while women have hoarded everything from candles to cologne from the brand since 1994, few know the story of its namesake.

Though the fragrance maverick sold Jo Malone London to Estée Lauder in 2006 and walked away from the fragrance world, Malone recently came back to the industry that changed her life, after having a life-changing experience of another kind. After receiving a prognosis of having just a few months to live with breast cancer and beating it, the entrepreneur announced her new venture, Jo Loves in 2011.

RELATED PHOTOS: UPDATED! The Coziest Candles to Give – or Get – This Winter

With her new line of fragrances, Malone admits she’s “more aggressive, courageous, ballsy and bolder in the way approaches the creation” of products, although the core of what she does remains the same. “You do it differently because you’ve evolved,” she told PeopleStyle. “That’s exactly why I love both of those brands in a very different way. They were in different parts of my life, but I am not the same girl I was 20 years ago.”

The perfumer gives the unvarnished truth about her career, from starting Jo Malone London at her kitchen table to her initial regrets about leaving her first brand, in her just-released memoir, Jo Malone: My Story.

“I didn’t skirt over the cracks in this book,” she said. “That’s what makes it so inspirational. I think people identify with that, like ‘If she went through it and I am going through it, I can come out on the other end.’”

In honor of her book hitting shelves this week, we sat down with Malone to learn how she went from dropout to creator of an empire, and the bumps along the way.

When did you realize you had such a keen awareness of fragrance?

My mom worked for a woman called Madame Lubatti, a facialist. As a little girl I would spend time in the apartment in the laboratory where they make all the skincare. That’s where I first fell in love with fragrance. My sense of smell was so strong and powerful. I could tell the difference from rose oils – from the Bulgarian rose to tea rose to English rose – without reading the label, because I couldn’t read yet! I didn’t have to learn it or study it or think about it. It was very natural to me.

Do you remember the first fragrance you owned?

My father bought me my first bottle for Christmas. It was a very, very light French lemony cologne. I don’t remember the name, but I can still smell it today. It’s funny. This is the only fragrance I can’t recall 100 percent. But I actually made one many years ago called Verbenas of Provence , which is inspired by it. When you smell it, it smells like youth. Verbenas of Provence is the nearest thing I probably had for that first fragrance.

What inspires you to create new scents?

If I am happy or sad I create fragrance. So many signify moments in my life. Lime Basil & Mandarin from Jo Malone London was a turning point in my life where I went from running a skincare clinic to suddenly starting to become a very successful perfumer. Smoked Plum & Leather, which is a fragrance we just launched, is riding my horse in Montana up in the mountains when I really lost a sense of who I was and I felt really in touch with my creativity again.

When do you know when a fragrance is finished? 

I just know. No one has ever asked me that question, and it’s such a great question. It’s like when a book is finished or when a piece of music is done. The creator knows that. I put a red dot on the bottom of the bottle and go, ‘That’s finished. No one touch it. It’s done.’ My team celebrates with a glass of wine and it’s a really magical moment.

How long does it take you to make a new product?

A fragrance can take me 10 years or one day. Creativity doesn’t have time on it. I won’t ever let someone from marketing … say I need to make something by the spring. It doesn’t work like that. I am going to create fragrances from my emotions and my integrity.

After leaving Jo Malone London in 2006, did you have any regrets?

I was so, so unhappy. But I walked away from that business. No one forced me. No one pushed me out the door. I walked out myself. How often in life do we do something and we know we’ve made a mistake but can’t turn back? I could spend the rest of my life regretting it, or get up and try again. So I tried again with Jo Loves.

Out of all the fragrances you’ve made, can you choose a favorite?

I have to do two. Lime Basil & Mandarin changed my life for Jo Malone London and Pomelo changed my life for Jo Loves, so I think it’s a bit like they’re my two kids. I can’t have one without the other. Without Lime Basil & Mandarin, I would have never created Pomelo. And without Pomelo I would never be able to move on.

Do you have a bunch of those two in your house at any given time?

We scent our house with Pomelo, so it’s a sign of home and safety to me. I only have one bottle of Lime Basil & Mandarin in my closet. Every now and then I just go in and smell it and take myself back to the moment and the memories. I still feel slightly sad when I smell it because it brings back all the memories.

As a fragrance expert, what advice can you give women to find their signature scent?

Test four or five fragrances from the same family – floral, woodsy or citrus – on a section of your arm. Mark where you sprayed each with one of those colored dot stickers you can get from Staples. Then you leave them on for about 20 minutes, go back and smell them again. But ultimately, fragrance is an art. Just like you will attune your eye to art, you have to attune your nose to fragrance.

What’s your favorite Jo Malone fragrance? Have you tried any of her new products from Jo Loves? Tell us below.

This Is What Happens When North West Tries To Dress Herself

Ask any parent, babysitter or toddler stylist you may know: one does not simply dress a 2-year-old.

Kim Kardashian knew this struggle all too well on Friday, when she shared a photo on her Instagram account of a seemingly stressed out little North West. Kardashian’s daughter covered her eyes with her hand as she rocked a Minnie Mouse helmet and a colorful unicorn backpack while she clutched a green umbrella.

“We cannot go out of the house like this!!! LOL,” the 34-year-old reality star captioned the cute photo:

The struggle is real! We cannot go out of the house like this!!! LOL

A photo posted by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on



Shortly afterward, Kardashian shared another photo of her daughter, this time sans Minnie Mouse headgear. “We compromised,” she wrote alongside the shot:

We compromised

A photo posted by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on



Kardashian, who is due with her second child in December, announced last month that she and husband Kanye West are expecting a baby boy. If he is anything like his father when it comes to fashion, Kardashian can expect to spend even more time trying to compromise with the little one when it comes to his outfit of the day.

This Is What Happens When North West Tries To Dress Herself

Ask any parent, babysitter or toddler stylist you may know: one does not simply dress a 2-year-old.

Kim Kardashian knew this struggle all too well on Friday, when she shared a photo on her Instagram account of a seemingly stressed out little North West. Kardashian’s daughter covered her eyes with her hand as she rocked a Minnie Mouse helmet and a colorful unicorn backpack while she clutched a green umbrella.

“We cannot go out of the house like this!!! LOL,” the 34-year-old reality star captioned the cute photo:

The struggle is real! We cannot go out of the house like this!!! LOL

Shortly afterward, Kardashian shared another photo of her daughter, this time sans Minnie Mouse headgear. “We compromised,” she wrote alongside the shot:

We compromised

Kelly Osbourne Posts Photo Of Herself Dressed As Rachel Dolezal On Instagram

Plenty of celebrities have added their two cents to this whole Rachel Dolezal situation, but Kelly Osbourne’s response takes things to a whole new level.

The 30-year-old daughter of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne posted a photo to her Instagram page on Thursday, in which she’s dressed to look like the former NAACP chapter president. She captioned the photo, “#CallMeRachel #MyCasualLook.”

In the photo, the former “Fashion Police” co-host is clearly emulating Dolezal; she’s dressed in a dark blazer and is wearing a curly brunette wig. All we’re thinking is, why?

Osbourne’s choice to post the pic seems a little off considering all the drama that went down after her former co-host Giuliana Rancic said Zendaya’s dreadlocks looked as if they smelled like “patchouli oil” or “weed.”

Following the controversy, Osbourne left the show, and just this past Wednesday, Melissa Rivers announced she’d be joining as co-host.

Taylor Swift Superfan Gets Ultimate Wedding Surprise From T. Swizzle Herself

For Taylor Swift superfan Katy Harris, Friday was a fairytale.

On June 12, Harris and her fiancé Chris got married in a parking lot in front of Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, where Swift was performing that night as part of her 1989 World Tour. Harris shared their wedding plans on Instagram last Tuesday: tie the knot before the show and attend the concert in their wedding attire.

Afterwards, the couple got the ultimate wedding present: a backstage photo op with T. Swizzle herself (!!!).

“In a 24-hour window, I married the love of my life and met my hero,” Harris wrote on Instagram. “If I’m dreaming don’t wake me up.”

According to Just Jared, Swift’s mom found the couple in the crowd after reading about their story on Instagram.

The couple had originally planned to get married on 12/13/14 — Swift’s 25th birthday — but ultimately decided to postpone the nuptials.

Looks like it was well worth the wait!

Dog Found Guilty Of Playing In Garbage Adorably Sentences Herself To A Kennel Timeout

Autumn, the pup in the video above, finds herself in trouble and realizes she has two options:

A. Avoid confrontation and run away from the authorities (her human).
B. Turn herself in. The jig is up.

Autumn decides to do both. In this video uploaded to YouTube, the pooch’s owner calls out to her pet after discovering that Autumn has had some fun in the garbage pile.

The guilty dog starts out running away from her problems, but soon realizes her efforts are futile. She’s been spotted.

So, at the 0:46 mark, she trots on into her kennel. Gotta do the time.

Sienna Miller Pokes Fun at Herself, Wears Ridiculous Outfit to Walk Around Her Neighborhood

This Vogue video of Sienna Miller poking fun at herself brightened my morning so much (pre-coffee!) that I had to share. I’ve had a style-based crush on Sienna ever since the world was introduced to her, and now I’m also of the opinion that she’s just kind of a hilarious, awesome all-around girl. If you can be so silly and make fun of how whack-a-doo people sometimes wonder if celebs are, you’re clearly pretty amazing.

sienna-miller-vogue-video

In it, she welcomes the videographer to her “physical space,” talks about loving her daughter while sipping from a mug that says “children are maggots” and takes her two dogs on a walk wearing a fantastic-if-ridiculous outfit of pom-pom-topped baseball cap, bold heels, and two pieces that loudly say her name (an embroidered bomber jacket and personalized Fendi top-handle bag).

Watch and tell me if you loved it as much as I did.

‘SNL’ Spoofs Kanye West & Kim Kardashian, And Lady Gaga Makes Fun Of Herself

“Saturday Night Live” went out on a limb this weekend and parodied known parody-of-himself hater Kanye West and Kim Kardashian in a talk show spoof, “Waking Up with Kimye.”

Jay Pharoah and Nasid Pedrad nailed their respective impersonations of the A-list celebrity couple, with Kanye fawning over Kim’s supposed innovation (“She just changed the game! Food is jewelry now!” he exclaimed, as Kim held up a macaroni necklace).

He then brought on a nerdy woman, played by host Lady Gaga, who works at the Apple Store’s Genius Bar. He pointed out how dull her clothes are, leading Gaga’s character to winkingly remark, “I don’t care about fashion. I think people who try too hard with their outfits are maybe hiding something.”

She continued to make fun of her own flashy sartorial choices: “Like, come on, dress like a person!”

Only time will tell how and if West will respond to the sketch. Earlier this year, he was rumored to have threatened to pull out of his scheduled “SNL” performance if the sketch show made fun of Kardashian.
