Amanda Knox Found Guilty in Murder Retrial

Amanda Knox and her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were both found guilty, once again, for the murder of British student Meredith Kercher in Italy. After having been first convicted of Kercher’s murder in 2009, the former couple’s charges were overturned on appeal in 2011.

Knox was sentenced to 28 and a half years in prison while Sollecito was sentenced to 25 years for the murder. Since being released in 2011 after having spent four years in an Italian prison, Knox has been living in Seattle. In an interview with Good Morning America after the verdict was announced, Knox said she would “never willingly go back” to Italy. Sollecito, who is an Italian citizen, had his passport revoked and was caught at the Italian border possibly trying to leave the country.

Beyonce Without Makeup

Shockingly awesome, of course, Beyonce uploaded a bare-faced photo of herself yesterday on Instagram. The photo inevitably became viral shortly after she posted what looks like a selfie of herself. She looks refreshingly human, quite a stark contrast from her empowering performance at the GRAMMY's last Sunday.

But that's why we all love Queen Bey. She can play up the drunk-in-love vixen role for a performance then turn it down for a more personal look for social media.

Special kudos to the Instagram app for changing the way celebrities can share all their personal photos with fans!

Lorde's Birth Certificare Released to Prove Real Age

While Pharrell’s hat may have been the most popular thing on Twitter during Sunday night’s Grammy Awards, there was also something else that had people talking. As viewers were watching Lorde perform and win some Grammys, they were also speculating about how old the 17-year-old really is. There are theories that the singer is older than what she claims to be.

To put the rumors to rest, a website called The Hairpin actually bought a copy of the singer’s birth certificate which lists her birthday as November 6, 1996 and her real name, Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O’Connor. The website paid $17.02 to obtain the copy of the certificate.

Scarlett Johansson's Super Bowl Ad Pulled

You might not be able to see Scarlett Johansson's Super Bowl commercial on Sunday. Is the voice of Her too seductive? Is the ad too hot for airwaves? Well, this is not the case. Fox announced it pulled Scarlett's SodaStream ad because it takes a direct jab at Coke and Pepsi.

The Israeli based company announced the Jewish actress would be their "global brand ambassador" earlier this month to help boost sales in the United States. At the end of the commercial, Scarlett says "Sorry, Coke and Pepsi." Both companies are major sponsors for the Super Bowl and Fox. When Fox announced they would pull the ad, SodaStream agreed to remove the line in order to ensure it will air on Sunday.
