1. Crossing the Line
Julianne Hough went as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren from the Netflix hit series Orange Is the New Black for a party on Oct. 25. She wore blackface and an orange jumpsuit. This move proved very controversial, and mortified by the backlash, she tweeted: “I am a huge fan of the show Orange Is the New Black, actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created. It certainly was never my intention to be disrespectful or demeaning to anyone in any way.” Her brother, Derek Hough, stated “Obviously, it wasn’t her brightest moment in her life, but hopefully we can move on.”
2. Past Their Bloom
Lord of the Rings actor Orlando Bloom and Victoria Secret model Miranda Kerr announced this week they have separated. After six years together, the couple split amicably. The two married in 2010, and have a two-year-old son named Flynn. The couple have been living separately for a while but recently announced their separation formally. The couple’s press told E News that “despite this being the end of their marriage, they love, support and respect each other as both parents of their son and as family.”
3. Brother, Where Art Thou?
The Jonas Brothers called it quits three weeks after announcing they were cancelling their tour due to “a deep rift between the band.” Joe said to People that it was a “unanimous decision” to break and that there are no personal problems with the brothers. While Jonas Brothers fans might not be ready to throw away their leftover concert apparel from eighth grade just yet, the boy band itself seems to be burning up, and by most accounts, will not be going to the year 3,000 together.
4. Courageous Costumes
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady matched with supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen as characters from The Wizard of Oz for Halloween. Gisele dressed as Dorothy while Tom whipped out some fuzzy attire dressing as the Cowardly Lion. Gisele posted a picture of them kissing with the caption “Having fun with my Lion last night! #thewizardofoz #Dorothy #2013 #halloween #fun #love.” Brady has yet to find the courage to retweet the image.
5. Beyonce Photo Bomb
While performing in Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne Park on Friday, Oct. 25., Beyonce surprised everyone at the concert by photo-bombing a selfie. A 15-year-old near the front row was taking a selfie, when Beyonce spotted the girl mid-song and photo-bombed the picture. The girl described on Tumblr what happened in gripping prose, declaring “OMG OMG OMG I CANT BELIEVE IT HAPPENED TO ME.”
