This is just further proof that the WHOLE world is Lupita Nyong'o's red carpet!!

The exquisite 12 Years A Slave actress recently made her way to Madison Square Garden where she attended her VERY first basketball game before she took her talents to Late Night With Jimmy Fallon!

And, we love that purple ensemb on her! Fresh from her interview! She just proves that she's not afraid to re-use the same outfit, AND why not? She looks INCREDS!

Lupita wasn't alone either, as she sat with some of her fellow celebs such as John Leguizamo and Edie Falco! She even got to snap a pic with Spike Lee, because that's pretty much a MUST if you're a celeb attending a Knicks game!

Oh, and did we mention she had an AH-mazing view as she sat courtside? Seriously, she posted a video of the action to Instgram and you can practically smell the players' sweat through the screen!

Ok, that's kind of gross. But you get the point!

Ch-ch-check out her video of the action …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

It looks like these guys had a VERY busy weekend!

In case you missed it, One Direction took their talents to 30 Rockefeller Plaza and absolutely BLEW OUR MINDS with their performance on Saturday Night Live!

But before they showed off their funny bones on SNL, Niall Horan and Liam Payne decided to go on a man date and take in some sportsball!

The lovely duo made their way to Madison Square Garden to watch the New York Knicks DESTROY the Orlando Magic and it looks like they made friends with some of the locals!

And when we say locals, we mean none other than court side native Spike Lee! The iconic director is a known Knicks fan, but it looks like he might be a full on Directioner now! Besides, Niall and Liam kind of proved to be good luck charms for his favorite team! Just sayin'!

At long last, Mike Tyson is making his return to the big screen!

Well, sort of.

Last year, the iconic boxer did a one-man Broadway show titled Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth where he opened up about his criminal past and his relationships throughout his career.

But if you missed all of the 11 shows, don't worry! Because Spike Lee filmed the whole thing and will be releasing it as an HBO documentary by the same name on November 16th!

The first trailer for the movie was recently dropped, and just like the live show promised, it's filled with a balance of hard hitting moments as well as a few laughs here and there!

We can't wait to see if for ourselves!

NBA's Jason Collins Comes Out: Celebs React On Twitter!

jason collins nba gay out proud nba celebs react first american sports player inspiration lgbt community

We were THRILLED when Jason Collins became the first openly gay and active athlete on a major American sports team — it was such a powerful moment for both Jason and the LGBT community, and the outpouring of support has been astounding!

For instance, BILL CLINTON took the time to say something about Jason:

“I have known Jason Collins since he was Chelsea’s classmate and friend at Stanford. Jason’s announcement today is an important moment for professional sports and in the history of the LGBT community. It is also the straightforward statement of a good man who wants no more than what so many of us seek: to be able to be who we are; to do our work; to build families and to contribute to our communities. For so many members of the LGBT community, these simple goals remain elusive. I hope that everyone, particularly Jason’s colleagues in the NBA, the media and his many fans extend to him their support and the respect he has earned.”

Uh, that's right — a former President is giving you props for being yourself! Amazeballz!

Here are some other people giving Jason verbal high-fives for being a brave pioneer for himself and the LGBT community in professional sports:

Mike Tyson's Broadway Show Brings Out The Stars

Mike Tyson has a show on broadway!

Kinda the last thing you'd have expected from the former champ.

The show is called Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth and it's a one man show about his own life.

It's written by Kiki Tyson, his third wife, and directed by his good friend Spike Lee.

It's apparently self-deprecating, funny and intense.

It certainly had some star drawing power, because the celebs were out in force!

Mike Tyson, Spike Lee, Donald Trump, Derek Jeter, C.C. Sabathia, Robert Townsend and many more all showed up!

Check out all the arrivals (below)!
