Viola Davis and Julius Tennon support their daughter, Genesis, at her first movie premiere
At just 7 years old, Genesis Tennon is already starting to follow in her parents' footsteps. The budding actress voices Vivi in the new "Angry Birds 2" movie, which she celebrated over the weekend at the Los Angeles premiere with her parents, Viola Davis and Julius Tennon. "It feels great. I'm nervous. I'm excited. All at the same time," Genesis told ET on the red carpet, adding that she "really can't wait to see the movie." Her Oscar-winning mom, who was recently nominated for an Emmy for her work on "How To get Away With Murder," told the site that while she's "so proud" of her little girl's first major foray into acting, she's not convinced she'll pursue it as a career. "I don't know if she wants to be an actress," Viola said. "I mean, the last time I checked she wanted to be a Navy Seal. I was really happy about that because I want her to be able to handle herself." Before they headed into the theater, Genesis assured the reporter she's keeping some solid advice from her mom in mind when it comes to acting: "[My mom told me] that no matter what people say, keep going."

Halsey slams troll for blaming Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth split on bisexuality
Halsey is standing up for the LGBTQ community in the wake of negative comments about Miley Cyrus that Halsey spotted on social media. The tweet in question targeted Miley's separation from Liam Hemsworth and a subsequent report that she was seen kissing Kaitlynn Carter. "MileyCyrus splitting and allegedly cheating on Liam with a woman confirms that you shouldn't date bi people," the tweet read (via the Daily Mail). "Not offensive, just true. Bi is greedy and never satisfied." Responding to the user, Halsey wrote: "Hey tigerbob. Doesn't surprise me that ur saying this and ur page has u crying about Brie Larson too! Stop being afraid of women who aren't afraid to do what pleases them and not other people :-)." Like Miley, the singer has said she's attracted to both men and women.

Priyanka Chopra defends herself against angry Beautycon attendee after urging more unity among women
Priyanka Chopra used much of her "fireside chat" session at last weekend's Beautycon in Los Angeles to talk about the importance of creating better opportunities for women — and fostering a spirit of "sisterhood" rather than division. "I've had so many times where I'm doing interviews and people always ask me, 'You're doing a movie with a female actor. Did you guys get along? Were there cat fights?' But when it comes to boys, they say, 'Oh, my gosh. That's a bromance, and everyone works so well,'" she told the audience, echoing sentiments raised by Taylor Swift and Katy Perry in recent months (via E! News). "I feel like, over time, because women had the lack of opportunities, we were pitted against each other. Because there were only five places a woman could be hired and so we were elbowing each other out to get to that one spot," Priyanka explained. "The more opportunity we create for each other, the more sisterhood will grow," she shared. "We're 50 percent of the world population, we need to be represented in every field. We need to be empowered by each other, by people who are in positions of power, by putting [women] in positions of power." Unfortunately, not everyone in the room got the unity memo. Another conference attendee told E! a woman in the audience yelled at the actress at one point during the session, challenging Priyanka on a March tweet the woman claimed came across as, "encouraging war between India and Pakistan." Priyanka responded by saying that while she has "many, many friends from Pakistan," she is "from India." "War is not something I'm really fond of but I am patriotic, so I'm sorry if I hurt sentiments to people who do love me and have loved me," she said of the tweet, which read, "Jai Hind (Long live India) #IndianArmedForces." Priyanka added: "… all of us have a … middle ground that we all have to walk Just like you probably do as well. The way that you came at me right now… girl, don't yell. We're all here for love."
Olivia Jade gives the press a piece of her mind as her parents' next court date nears
Lori Loughlin's daughter, Olivia Jade Giannulli, has made herself comfortable on social media again after taking some time out of the spotlight while her parents face fraud charges related to the national college admissions scandal. On Sunday, Aug. 11, the 19-year-old influencer gave the tabloid press a piece of her mind on Instagram, flipping the bird with both hands in a photo captioned only "@dailymail @starmagazine @people @perezhilton @everyothermediaoutlet #close #source #says." The post comes a few days after ET reported Olivia won't return to USC and will instead "rebuild her brand and her business." That's according to one of the anonymous sources that likely inspired Olivia's finger gestures, though, so we'll take the report with a healthy-sized grain of salt. ET's source also claimed Olivia feels "resentment" towards her mom for sending her to USC but is now just "trying to get through the summer," as is her sister, Bella. Both girls were allegedly admitted to USC as crew recruits despite never having rowed in high school. Their parents have pleaded not guilty to charges they paid $500,000 in bribes to get them into the school. Lawyers for Lori and her husband, Mossimo Giannuli, are scheduled for "status conferences" on the case on Oct. 2, according to Utah's Deseret News. Lori and Mossimo are reportedly due in court Aug. 27.
Lady Gaga's foundation to 'fully fund' 163 classroom projects in El Paso, Dayton and Gilroy
After three mass shootings in just one week sent shockwaves across the country and around the world, Lady Gaga has announced plans to "channel [her] … fury into hope" with the help of her Born This Way Foundation and DonorsChoose.org, an organization that "empowers public school teachers from across the country to request much-needed materials and experiences for their students," according to its website. Last week, Gaga announced in a Facebook post that her foundation will "fully fund the classroom project needs in Dayton, OH, El Paso, TX, and Gilroy, CA." "My heart goes out to those who were taken from us too soon and to their families, loved ones, and communities who are left to grieve," the singer wrote in a "note to" the cities where the recent shootings occurred. "Everyone has the right to laws that make them feel safe in their communities. In this moment, I want to channel my confusion, frustration, and fury into hope. Hope that we are there for each other and for ourselves," she continued. "The project will include 14 classrooms in Dayton, 125 in El Paso and 23 in Gilroy will now have access to the support they need to inspire their students to work together and bring their dreams to life." She added a gentle nudge to those who are still suffering from the effects of the shootings not to be afraid to get professional help as they sort out their feelings. "Surviving and recovering from these tragedies also means prioritizing your mental health and checking in on your loved ones," Gaga wrote. "If you're struggling, please be brave and tell a trusted someone. Don't be scared to ask for help, I beg you. If you see a loved one struggling, please be brave and reach out, remind them it's ok to not be ok, and listen to them. We cannot turn away from ourselves. We cannot turn away from our loved ones. We need each other. Don't turn away."
Jesse Williams and ex, Aryn Drake-Lee, headed to trial over child and spousal support
It's been more than a year since "Grey's Anatomy" star Jesse Williams was ordered to pay his ex, Aryn Drake-Lee, more than $100,000 a month in child and spousal support. And despite Jesse's argument that the figure is "wildly inflated" beyond Aryn and their two kids' needs and his attempt to settle out of court, The Blast reports the former couple will go to trial in Los Angeles on Sept. 5. They had attempted to come to an agreement in a court-ordered mediation. According to The Blast, Aryn will likely ask for the support to stay the same and may request $1 million in "retroactive support," while Jesse is expected to ask for a reduction in the monthly fee.
A$AP Rocky addresses 'scary, humbling' prison experience ahead of verdict in assault case
A judge in Sweden is slated to announce a verdict this week in the assault case pending against A$AP Rocky, but for now, the rapper is back in the U.S., and seems happy to be performing. In his first concert since he was released from prison in Stockholm, he paused to address the support he's gotten since he was arrested and imprisoned for allegedly attacking a man on the street, an allegation he has vehemently denied, saying he only got physical in the interest of self-defense. "Y'all know how happy I am to be here right now," he says in a video posted by a fan, according to Rolling Stone. "I wanna say this, though: When I was away — hold the mosh please, this a sentimental moment — what I experienced was crazy … It was a scary, humbling experience, but I'm here right now. God is good. People who ain't even f— with me felt sympathy. People was praying for me. That uplifted me when my spirits was low. I can't thank y'all enough, man. That was crazy. Hip-hop never looked so strong together." Kanye West and Al Sharpton are among the many celebs who spoke out in support of Rocky.
Gisele Bundchen celebrates 'all mamas' in honor of breast-feeding awareness month
Gisele Bundchen is feeling nostalgic for the days when her kids, now 6 and 9, were still breastfeeding. In a recent Instagram post featuring a breast-feeding awareness month shout-out, the Brazilian beauty took some time to reflect on her experiences nursing her little ones. "That special look you get, that feeling of connection is unlike anything I have ever experienced. I love how #breastfeedingawarenessmonth shines a light on the importance of breastfeeding," she wrote alongside a photo of her daughter, Vivian, nursing. "Yes, in the beginning it can be difficult, it can hurt (the cracks, bleeding, engorgement), but no matter how challenging, I would not change that experience for anything in this world. I feel blessed that I was able to nourish them in this way," she continued. Before signing off, she included a mention of mothers who may not have been able to breast-feed but wanted to, writing, "Congratulations to all mamas out there for the effort that we put in, the ones who breast-feed, and those who could not and have had heartbreaking moments trying to. I celebrate all of you!"
