    Kate Middleton and Prince WilliamKate Middleton and Prince William

    If Kate Middleton has been nearly overshadowed by the uncannily photogenic Prince George during this tour of New Zealand and Australia, then Prince William has been basically forgotten completely. Sure, he has sparred with Kate on the water, and reminded us of his presence via snippy comments about Kate's outfits ("too bright," you "look like a banana"). But today, like a petulant teenager crying out for attention, William raised eyebrows and heart rates around the world by standing very, very close to the edge of a cliff in Australia. As you can see here, the jeans-clad prince stood about 18 inches from the edge, peering down from the lookout, while Kate held her ground several yards behind him.

    The manager of the Mountain Youth Services Team said that even he, as a supervisor of sorts, felt a bit fearful about William's actions: "He took a bit of a lunge and a few

  • Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis Are Having a Girl

    Ashton Kutcher and Mila KunisAshton Kutcher and Mila Kunis

    Jackie and Kelso are having a baby girl! Oh, sorry. I mean Mila Kunis and her fiancé, Ashton Kutcher, are having a baby girl. Calling them "Jackie and Kelso," which is a reference to their characters on the long-running sitcom That '70s Show, assumes a familiarity that's really unfair to assume. Why should anyone know what "Jackie and Kelso" means? No reason to know that! Unless you were a teenager in 2001, as some of us were, there is no reason to know what "Jackie and Kelso" means. So, I apologize for that. Sincerely. Just as I hope you would apologize for saying "Barney and Robin" and assuming I have some sense of what the hell you're talking about, or, even worse, "Schmidt and Jess." Never say "Schmidt" and assume I know what you're talking about.

    The couple that tours together . . . makes a lot of money together? . . . has to find a really good babysitter? . . . puts their house up for a months-long Airbnb? Beyoncé and Jay Z are (probably) going to be spending the summer on a 20-city stadium tour of the U.S., which would begin in late June.

    This report is from Page Six, which means there's a good chance it's true, though, when it comes to Beyoncé news, it's generally a good idea to wait until it's on her Instagram before accepting it as a fact. (We've reached out to Beyoncé's publicist and have not yet heard back.)

    The couple has been crashing each other's performances since they first got together over a decade ago. This year alone, they have shared the stage for a sizzling Grammys performance, a DirecTV Super Bowl party, and a London stop on the Mrs. Carter world tour in February. So many options for titles for the tour:

  • Is the Beard Trend Over?

    Are beards over? Are beards over? Just when we were getting used to seeing beards everywhere, it may be time for men who enjoy the attention of the opposite sex to invest in some shaving paraphernalia. In a new University of New South Wales study, researchers found that "when people are confronted by a succession of bearded men, clean-shaven men become more attractive to them."

    Researchers studied 1,453 bisexual and heterosexual women and 213 heterosexual men, who were shown 36 images of men's faces. The first 24 pictures were a mixture of bearded and non-bearded men; the last 12, however, showed clean-shaven and bearded men. They then ranked their attractiveness on a scale of minus four to four. According to The Guardian, "The more beards they'd already seen, the less attractive subsequent beards were, and vice versa with clean-shaven men."

    Kate Middleton, Prince George and Prince WilliamKate Middleton, Prince George and Prince WilliamAfter a day of rest as their time in New Zealand came to a close, the royal family pulled out all the stops today on their Down Under tour, as they arrived in Australia on Wednesday. The return of George! Kate in yellow! A Sydney Opera House photo op!

    Yes, after becoming everyone's iPhone background last week, when pictures of his play date hit the Internet, George re-emerged as the couple arrived in Sydney. Again, George wore an ensemble adorned with sailboats, which are becoming a trademark of sorts for him. (We imagine William, as Kate dressed George, accusing: "You're just doing this to rub it in, aren't you?" Kate: "Would you like me to dress him in a rugby outfit, William? Please."). The outfit is reminiscent of one William wore in 1983, as seen in a photo with mother Diana taken in Kensington Palace.

    The trio was met at Sydney Harbor by a crowd of "thousands" who

  • Kate Upton Wishes She Had Smaller Boobs

    Josh Duboff

    Kate UptonKate UptonKate Upton has been on the cover of basically every magazine (including this one) at this point, and her body is considered one of the most desirable in all the land. But, as they say, the bods are always greener on the other side. Upton tells The Sun that she'd rather have a completely different shape. "I wish I had smaller boobs every day of my life as I love to wear spaghetti tops braless or go for the smallest bikini designs," she said. "Every single day, I'm like, 'Oh, man, it would be so much easier,' especially if people didn't constantly bring them up." (Upton is not the first blond bombshell to lament the great attention paid to her chest. Pamela Anderson once told a magazine, "The thing I love most about my body and the thing I hate most are my breasts and my breasts. I have a love-hate relationship with them.")

    Elizabeth TaylorElizabeth TaylorThree years after Elizabeth Taylor's death, one of her ten grandchildren has granted a rare interview about her personal memories of the legendary beauty, actress, and activist. Naomi deLuce Wilding, a 39-year-old gallerist and fashion stylist living in Los Angeles, tells Glamour about her "granny," with whom she lived for three years in L.A. Specifically, she shares how Taylor inspired her interest in fashion, encouraged her to be more daring, and let her play with all of her fabulous jewels. Wilding remembers:

    "I grew up in the countryside of Wales with my mother, Johanna. (My father, Michael, moved to America when I was five.) We lived a practical existence, but twice a year my sister, Laela, and I would go to L.A. to stay at my grandmother's house, which was like a fairy tale. I spent hours in her closet. She had all the designers-Valentino, Versace-and things she'd picked up in the market in Mexico too. We'd sit on

  • Kate Middleton Plays Cricket in Heels in New Zealand

    Josh Duboff

    Kate MiddletonKate MiddletonSometimes it feels like these Kate and William photo ops are generated in some sort of factory in a Mad Libs-style assembly line: "Let's put her . . . in a ferris wheel . . . with ribbons in her hair . . . in jeans!" "At a tribal ceremony . . . in a purple fascinator . . . sitting in a wheelbarrow!" Monday's New Zealand itinerary brought Kate and William to the cricket field, where the couple actually went out onto the grass and did cricket stuff. Kate-dressed in a red skirt suit and black heels-wielded a yellow bat and took swings at William's pitches (which are apparently called "bowls" in cricket terms).

    Per the Daily Mail, Kate was "bowled one off-stump" by William, though "fortunately she managed to strike it to mid off." (We will take your word for it, Daily Mail, since that all sounds like suspect Google Translate results to us.) She then "managed to miss two
