As summer winds down, Hollywood drama is still heating up.
Or... should we say cooling down? Even though many of our favorite stars cooled way down for the ALS ice bucket challenge, the weekend was full of awards, questionable new coupling, and more. Check out the top celeb stories from the weekend!
Bey and Jay-Z "Crazy In Love"?
Beyoncé and Jay Z’s On The Run Tour is coming to a close and reports of their ending marriage are still flying. However, a trailer released by HBO promoting the network's "On The Run Tour" special (set to premiere on September 20) showed the duo looking strong together. Along with clips from their summer performances, we see Beyoncé singing a sultry "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down" as Jay watches, smoking a cigar.
The pair is about to begin the European leg of their tour but before that, they had some time off this weekend. Bey posted some fierce pictures on her Instagram of the Carter clan who had a small amount of time together before taking off for their final shows.
The family of three spent the day at the K1 Speed indoor go karting rink in Torrance, California. An adorable picture of Blue Ivy walking hand-in-hand in with dad Jay Z was shared on Bey’s website Saturday night. Fans are still concerned over the relationship that might be over soon, but holding onto the hope that rumors are rumors.
J. Law and Chris Martin
Newly single Jennifer Lawrence is rumored to be seeing a lot of Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, also newly single. The Oscar winner celebrated her 24th birthday this weekend and from what recent reports are suggesting, Chris Martin might have been in on the festivities. Lawrence only recently ended things with on-again, off-again boyfriend Nicholaus Hoult while Martin ‘consciously uncoupled’ from wife of 10 years Gwyneth Paltrow earlier this year.
Friendly exes Paltrow and Martin still share a home together in Brentwood, California with their two children. Reports say that Martin and Lawrence have spending more and more time together as of late June, so perhaps a summer fling? We’ll have to wait and see for this unlikely pair!
The Challenge Chilling Hollywood
The ALS ice bucket challenge is arguably one of the biggest social media trends of the year and this weekend had a ton of celebs accepting the challenge and nominating their star pals. The challenge is pushing to bring awareness to ALS and if nominated for the challenge, you have 24 hours to dump a bucket of ice water over your head or donate $100 to the ALS foundation. Lena Dunham, Selena Gomez, Jon Bon Jovi, Oprah Winfrey, Bethenny Frankel, James Van Der Beek, Joe Jonas, Lily Aldridge and more all accepted the ice bucket challenge and posted their respective videos on social media.
Chris Pratt did a humorous take as he was challenged twice, by Robert Downey Jr. and by Disney CEO Bob Iger. Here's his response, which features his wife, actress Anna Faris, and his mother.
Justin Bieber accepted the challenge from friend and manager Scooter Braun and it doesn’t end there. The Biebs went onto challenge Ellen DeGeneres and "main man President" Barack Obama. We’re still waiting for those videos. Meanwhile, Lady GaGa showed her support on Twitter as well. "I pledge a $10,000 donation to ALS + I will also ice myself to spread the word. If 1 person is sick the whole world is. We are one body.”
Creative Arts Emmys
The Creative Arts Emmys were hosted Saturday afternoon at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Though there were plenty of big wins inside, Heidi Klum stole the show when she stunned on the red carpet in a blue tasseled dress designed by Project Runway contestant Sean Kelly.
The biggest talked about win of the night was the statuette awarded to Orange Is The New Black star Uzo Aduba. She took home the trophy for outstanding guest actress in a comedy in which she plays Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren. Aduba described the win as "surreal."
