Beyoncé to Launch Vegan Food Delivery Service http://vitafavo.com/beyonce-launch-vegan-food-delivery-service/ http://vitafavo.com/beyonce-launch-vegan-food-delivery-service/#respond Tue, 03 Feb 2015 17:33:46 +0000 http://vitafavo.com/?p=4002 Beyoncé — Queen of the world, is teaming up with nutritionist and psychologist Marco Borges to launch a vegan home delivery food service called 22 Day Nutrition.

It should come as less of a surprise though as the songstress (and her hubby Jay Z) went vegan in 2013 after accepting the challenge from Borges himself.

“I am so grateful that I took the challenge and credit Marco with leading by example. He is the most energetic person I know and it’s all because of his decision to live a healthy lifestyle,” Beyoncé said in an official statement about the partnership.  “He came up with a great program to get people motivated to make better nutritional choices. All you have to do is try.  If I can do it, anyone can.”

22 Days will featured vegan superfoods choices in the egetable, bean and grain categories, and if they look anything like those depicted on the company’s website — there are going to be a lot of happy (and healthy) eaters in the Beyhive.

Emma Watson is Going to Be the Best Belle Ever http://vitafavo.com/emma-watson-going-best-belle-ever/ http://vitafavo.com/emma-watson-going-best-belle-ever/#respond Mon, 26 Jan 2015 22:50:43 +0000 http://vitafavo.com/?p=3999 Dreams really do come true. Just ask Emma Watson; she was just cast to play the lead role in Disney’s “live action” remake of the Disney classic, Beauty and the Beast.

Yes! She’s going to be singing and dancing across the big screen in one of the most anticipated movies of the year. And, can you think of anyone better to fill the super-chic and classy shoes of the iconic princess? (No, no you can’t.)

Like Belle, she’s won the hearts of anyone who’s ever seen her. (Hello, Harry Potter, and that #HeForShe campaign? Moment.)

Directed by Bill Condon, the film is said to begin production later this year — although, no release date has been set.

Watson took to her official Facebook page to announce the big news! “I’m finally able to tell you … that I will be playing Belle in Disney’s new live-action Beauty and the Beast! It was such a big part of my growing up, it almost feels surreal that I’ll get to dance to ‘Be Our Guest’ and sing ‘Something There.’ My six year old self is on the ceiling — heart bursting. Time to start some singing lessons. I can’t wait for you to see it,” she wrote.

DID YOU KNOW?! Since its initial release in 1981, the Beauty and the Beast movie has grossed more than $145 Million domestically via various releases; that total does not account for inflation.

Lindsay Lohan Hospitalized http://vitafavo.com/lindsay-lohan-hospitalized/ http://vitafavo.com/lindsay-lohan-hospitalized/#respond Wed, 21 Jan 2015 20:36:14 +0000 http://vitafavo.com/?p=3994 TMZ is reporting that actress Lindsay Lohan has been hospitalized for a very rare virus called Chikungunya.

Chikungunya causes some serious fevers, joint pain, and fatigue; it’s not clear where the starlet contracted the virus. She vacationed in Bora Bora for the holidays and flew to LA to shoot an Esurance commercial (expected to air during the Super Bowl). It’s said she began feeling sick just before New Year’s Eve and matters only worsened as she returned to London to the point of being unable to walk.

She’s located at King Edward VII’s Hospital in London; it happens to be the same place The Queen gets treated. (Like, Queen Elizabeth. Not Beyonce.)

Status? It turns out the joint pain could plague her… for months.

Listen: Kelly Clarkson Debuts “Heartbeat Song” http://vitafavo.com/listen-kelly-clarkson-debuts-heartbeat-song/ http://vitafavo.com/listen-kelly-clarkson-debuts-heartbeat-song/#respond Tue, 13 Jan 2015 14:44:47 +0000 http://vitafavo.com/?p=3987

The Internet is all a buzz following the release of Kelly Clarkson‘s latest pop (sure-to-be) hit, Heartbeat Song. (If timing really was an art form, she’d be Picasso. Honestly.)

Arguably the greatest pop release of 2015 — so far, Heartbeat Song reminds us that Kelly hasn’t gone anywhere; even though her last release was “Stronger” (back in 2012). We’ve missed you Kels; there’s no denying that this upbeat thumping anthem surely lives up to the singer’s past hits and only makes us that much more excited for… future work? Maybe? Please?

Listen to the track, above.

Michael Sam & Vito Cammisano, Engaged! http://vitafavo.com/michael-sam-vito-cammisano-engaged/ http://vitafavo.com/michael-sam-vito-cammisano-engaged/#respond Fri, 09 Jan 2015 19:00:33 +0000 http://vitafavo.com/?p=3963 Reports are swirling and if they’re true, congratulations will definitely be in order for the NFL’s first openly gay player Michael Sam and his longtime boyfriend Vito Cammisano… because… if reports are true… they’re engaged!

Page Six is reporting that the engagement took place in Rome (the couple has been traveling Europe since December 30th).

Sam and Cammisano have been dating since their college days at the University of Missouri and together they sparked headlines last year when they shared a celebratory hug and kiss following Sam’s draft pick for the St. Louis Rams.

Last month, Michael (now a free agent) gushed to Oprah that he’d like to tie-the-knot someday and hoped that the lucky man would be Vito.

Watch: Nicki Minaj: My Time Again Trailer http://vitafavo.com/watch-nicki-minaj-time-trailer/ http://vitafavo.com/watch-nicki-minaj-time-trailer/#respond Fri, 09 Jan 2015 18:32:11 +0000 http://vitafavo.com/?p=3960 It’s here you guys.

MTV is gearing up to release another celebrity documentary. Nicki Minaj: My Time Again is a sequel to the 2010 production Nicki Minaj: It’s My Time and promises to give viewers ’emotional’ look at the road leading up to the 2014 album release of The Pinkprint.

Unlike its previous production — which documented the rapper’s fast rise to fame, this documentary shines the white-hot spotlight on the emotional side of things; exposing her more pressing struggles.

“When I’m faced with crazy adversities, I turn on a switch that I don’t even know I have sometimes,” she says in the trailer. “Every human needs to push themselves to the point of breaking sometimes. If you never break, you never know how much pressure you can take.”

Naturally, My Time Again is going to highlight the making of the album, but it’s also going to expose the star’s relationship with her friends and family; plus a behind-the-scenes look at that moment (at the MTV Awards) when the python bit her back-up dancer. (Sweet.)

Unconfirmed — but expected: It looks like the show might dive a little into her personal life; exposing her romantic relationships as well. Check out the trailer above and tell us what you think, in the comments.

Nicki Minaj: My Time Again premiers January 18th at 10PM ET on MTV.

Cameron Diaz to Marry Benji Madden, Tonight! http://vitafavo.com/cameron-diaz-marry-benji-madden-tonight/ http://vitafavo.com/cameron-diaz-marry-benji-madden-tonight/#respond Mon, 05 Jan 2015 23:23:49 +0000 http://vitafavo.com/?p=3957 Get ready to hear those church bells…

Hollywood actress (and style icon) Cameron Diaz is preparing to marry boyfriend Benji Madden — tonight; it’s all expected to go down at their Beverly Hills home. (There’s a lot of activity going on over there.)

Can we just talk — for a second, about how quick this seems? Cameron has never been one to swear off marriage… but it wasn’t too long ago that she said “there’s no need to rush it.” (And, here we are.)

Having been friends for a while, they debuted as a couple in May of this year and hit the state of Florida for him to meet her parents.

“I like protecting people, but I was never drawn to being a mother,” Diaz told Esquire. “I have it much easier than any of them [people with kids]. That’s just what it is. Doesn’t mean life isn’t sometimes hard. I’m just what I am. I work on what I am. Right now, I think, things are good for me. I’ve done a lot. And I don’t care anymore.”

Nevertheless, we’re stoked for the happy couple and we cannot wait to see those “first pics.”

Gaston Goes Viral By Winning Push-Up Contest http://vitafavo.com/gaston-goes-viral-winning-push-contest/ http://vitafavo.com/gaston-goes-viral-winning-push-contest/#respond Mon, 05 Jan 2015 15:32:00 +0000 http://vitafavo.com/?p=3952 Walt Disney World is a land where anything can happen; that must have been the thought on this guys mind when he challenged Gaston to a push-up competition.

Because… he lost.

In a video taken by an innocent bystander, the park attendee clearly challenges the already-viral villain to a fair and square push-up match. Not only does the actor win, but he does (arguably) double the amount of push ups… even single-handed ones.

Oh Gaston! Check out the video above.
