There she is, Miss America 2014: Kira Kazantsev! The New Yorker is the third consecutive beauty queen from the Empire State to claim the coveted tiara!

During the talent portion, Kazantsev sang Pharrell Williams' "Happy" while sitting cross-legged on the stage and banging a red plastic cup on the floor.

That immediately touched off a furor on social media networks, where many were critical of her performance, but Kara said she was inspired by Pitch Perfect.

In the 2012 movie, fans may recall that the beloved Anna Kendrick's character auditions for an a capella group by performing rhythmically with a cup.

Kazantsev said she did it to show future Miss America contestants they can win pageant by performing whatever talent routine they like, no matter what others think.

Looks to have paid off, considering she walked away with the title!

Mayim Bialik is not a fan of Ariana Grande. Specifically the billboards around town promoting the singer's new album, and in Bialik's view, sex and lots of it.

As she shared on her Kveller blog on Friday, the self-proclaimed "old-fashioned" actress is not a fan of ads such as this, especially because of her children.

"There is one for Ariana Grande, and I will go ahead and admit I have no idea who she is or what she does," the 38-year-old mother of sons ages 6 and 9 wrote.

"Based on the billboard, she sells lingerie. Or stiletto heels. Or plastic surgery, because every woman over 22 wishes she has that body, I'm sure."

"Why is she in her underwear on this billboard though? And if she has a talent (is she a singer?), then why does she have to sell herself in lingerie?"

"I mean, I know society is patriarchal and women are expected to be sexy and sexually available no matter what we do, but I guess now I need to explain that to my sons?"

The billboard (below) is actually for Ariana's new album, My Everything, which hit shelves late last month using that same image of Grande on its cover:

Over the past few weeks, rumors of Ariana Grande's diva behavior have provided plenty of laughs and occasions for collective head shaking.

Yesterday, Giuliana Rancic confirmed that the rumors are true, and the E! News personality is not in the business of lying or making celebrity enemies.

According to Rancic, the 21-year-old singer is a full-blown prima donna and her weird quirk that's been consistently chattered about is indeed a real thing:

Ariana Grande Hair

Yes, Ariana is obsessed with her left side. So obsessed, in fact that Ariana has canceled photo shoots out of fear that someone might snap a pic of her "bad side." 

It's odd, and amusing, and maybe a bit obnoxious-sounding.

Some folks are speculating, though, that there could be more to Ariana's Harvey Dent-like obsession with the hemispheres of her face than we originally thought:

Various writers and social critics have begun theorizing that Ariana's fear of being photographed on her right side could be a symptom of body dysmorphia.

One might say that singer Lady Gaga was born this way.

After launching her "Body Revolution" campaign two years ago, Lady Gaga has continued to champion her cause via a series of Instagram pictures and tweets.

Generally, this means un-retouched photos of her body:

  • Lady Gaga: Body Revolution
  • Lady Gaga Swimsuit Photo

Posing by the pool in a nude-colored swimsuit, the 28-year-old pop icon said on Instagram, "I love a night swim, so quiet, put on some jazz and just soak."

"#bodyrevolution Proud at any size, because the inside is what really counts," Gaga told her fans. "Plus, it's all how you pose! Just ask the supermodels!"

"I'm taking a stand #BodyRevolution," she added.

The haters are out in force on the Internet, as we all sadly know by now, and the Mother Monster is out to set a positive example for her young fans.

Demi Lovato is a big fan of Kim Kardashian's body of work. Or just her body.

We doubt she's sitting around watching the Kim Kardashian sex tape, but she credits its moaning star for changing the way society thinks about beauty.

Seriously. Demi praises Kim's influence on girls for embracing her voluptuous, booty-licious curves, showing us that a gorgeous body isn't always stick-thin.

That is one positive way to spin Kardashian's career, that's for sure.

Demi Lovato and Kim Kardashian

Asked about the photo collage she posted while reflecting on her body image issues, Demi told Access Hollywood it was more about the feeling than the clothes.

She was having a blast in her mid-teenage years, yes, however, "The very first time I went to the VMAs, I just looked so bony and fragile and unhappy."

"I look back at that and I think, 'You know what? I may have been thinner, but I am so happy I am healthy today and I have curves, which are a lot sexier than what I was aiming for.'"

"I think curves are beautiful and I feel great," Lovato adds, and for changing her perception, "I really credit women like Beyonce and Kim Kardashian."

This may not rank among the worst examples of Photoshop ever assembled, but that says more about those examples than it does this particular case.

Fella Swim's retouched photos featuring Australian model Meaghan Kausman did not sit well with Meghan herself. Kausman posted this photo on Instagram:

Kausman is not missing a limb or anything like that, but the side by side comparison - one pic prior to editing and one from after - is still striking.

Not only was her stomach slimmed down, the rest of her body appears retouched, too. The most important part of her post, however, is its caption.

The model condemns the obvious editing as evidenced here, labeling it as "shocking", adding, "my body is a size 8, not a size 4. That’s my body!"

She goes on, incredulously, to state, "I refuse to stand by and allow ANY company or person to perpetuate the belief that 'thinner is better.' EVER!"

Lolita Richi, the latest Human Barbie, says she is the only REAL Human Barbie.

Allow her to explain. You see, the latest human aspiring to emulate a plastic toy's rendering of beauty says that her striking appearance is all-natural.

The irony is thick, as no "natural" teen strives to be a doll. But Lolita Richi says that unlike other hopefuls, she can reach this pinnacle with no surgery!

Lolita Richi: Teen Barbie

The Ukrainian-born Lolita wears a 32F bra, has a 20-inch waist, and besides not having surgery to achieve her look, says she doesn't even diet.

“I have a naturally gorgeous figure so I don’t even have to diet,” the 16-year-old Richi tells the Daily Mail, apparently not lacking for self-confidence here.

The 5’4'' teen went on to diss Valeria Lukyanova, her fellow Ukrainian who laid claim to the Human Barbie title last year, because she's like SO FAKE!

Move over, Alina Kovalevskaya and Valeria Lukyanova.

And, unfortunately, make room for Lolita Richi.

This 16-year old from Kiev is the latest misguided soul to model her look entirely on a certain famous Mattel doll. Yes, readers, it’s another Human Barbie.

Lolita Richi is a 16-year old from Kiev. She (sadly) prides herself on looking just like Barbie.

Richi has a a 20-inch waist and very, very large breasts, and unlike some of her counterparts, she claims she’s has no plastic surgery of any kind.

This video should alleviate any doubts about whether you need to be putting on sunscreen on a regular basis, even if you don't have any visible damage.

Check out what skin looks like under ultraviolet light:

Artist Thomas Leveritt had women and men of all ages view their faces under an ultraviolet lens, revealing a lot of things they did not expect.

Too much time unprotected in the sun (or tanning bed, Snooki) can increase freckles, age spots, and sun damage that might not be visible to the naked eye.

SPF, the active ingredient in sunscreen, is the best defense against aging. Under the ultraviolet camera, SPF shows up as a black barrier against UVA and UVB rays.

Without it? You're rolling the dice. The difference between regular folks and children (or vigilant sunscreen wearers) who appear flawless were striking.

While we like to see celebrities with and without makeup (below), we don't want to see them, or you, without sunscreen. Take care of the skin you're in ...
