Music artists (and wannabes) have made the Grammys one of the must-watched events in Hollywood. From Nicki Minaj’s Bride of Frankenstein-meets-cheetah print pixie (looks like she skipped out on making a scene this year) to Christina Aguilera’s huge flop at looking like a flapper, not every beauty moment is a hit.
Red-carpet veterans Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez proved that simple hair and makeup is sometimes the best way to go, while songbirds Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift fell short a few notes in heavy eye makeup and a childish braided updo, respectively. But Estonian singer Kerli made up for Lady Gaga’s absence in the weirdest Grammys beauty look we’ve seen so far.
See these head-turning beauty looks and more in our slideshow below, then check out the fashion hits and misses at the 2013 Grammys.

After Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler backed out of “American Idol” for Season 12, Fox went into full-fledged search mode as they looked for the next big judges. They ended up with Keith Urban, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, but according to THR the latter two singers didn’t initially jump at the opportunity. “I was on the fence about the whole thing … I got approached by all the [singing competition] shows,” Carey said, adding that she chose “Idol” thanks to advice from her husband Nick Cannon. “He said I should do it because it’s the top, it’s the cream of the crop. And I felt like, ‘Do the show that’s produced massive stars who have had major careers.’”Read More…

Fugitive software pioneer John McAfee has reportedly been arrested in Guatemala for illegally entering the country, says Guatemalan Interior Minister Mauricio Lopez Bonilla.
McAfee, known for his paranoia and experimental drug use, went on the run from his home Belize after his neighbor was murdered on November 11 and he was sought for questioning.
On Tuesday, McAfee told journalists he was applying for political asylum. Guatemalan authorities, however, said they had received no asylum request from McAfee. Belize still seeks him for questioning, but he does not face arrest, Belizean authorities say.
The founder of the McAfee anti-virus software company retired in 1994, netting $100 million in the process. He has lived in Belize, a tiny, English-speaking tropical country in Central America, for the past four years.

In a recent interview with Hollywood Life, Jennifer Lopez opened up about the struggles she faced in the wake of her public split from third husband, Marc Anthony, in July 2011. The singer took a break from her Dance Again World Tour to sit down with editor-in-chief and HuffPost blogger Bonnie Fuller to discuss the divorce and the breakup of her family, which she described as “devastating.”“I didn’t want to be the woman who stayed in bed for months,” Lopez said. “I did do that a little, but I knew I had to get through it.” She continued: “I’d dance every day, I’d work out, I’d say a little prayer and I still wouldn’t feel any better. Then I’d go to bed and get up the next day and do it all again. It was a process, and it very gradually got a little easier.”Read More…
