Filed under: Music MinuteFilm FlickersBonoGolden Globes

So happy to see this!

U2 wins the Golden Globe for Best Original Song!

Bono and the boys wrote Ordinary Love for Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, the biopic about the life of Nelson Mandela. They of course talked about Mr. Mandela in their acceptance speech, explaining how their own relationship with the late leader influenced the song.

They also gave some love to Coldplay's Chris Martin, who apparently helped them write this tune!

The other nominees in the category were Let It Go, from Frozen, Atlas, from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Please Mr. Kennedy, from Inside Llewyn Davis, and Sweeter Than Fiction, from One Chance.

Congrats!!!

President Barack Obama addressed a packed stadium of people in South Africa this morning during a memorial service for the late great leader Nelson Mandela.

The crowd erupted in applause as the President took the podium, as well as each time Obama’s name was mentioned throughout the ceremony - a testament to how significant his two terms in office are to South Africa and the rest of the world.

But Mr. Obama’s words of remembrance were ones of humbleness and gratitude towards Mandela. The President admitted:

Brad Pitt & Bono Came THIS Close To Becoming Scientologists!

Filed under: Brad PittBonoCults

We lurvz us some Brad Pitt and Bono!!! And we're not alone…

Evidently the Church of Scientology were big fans of these big names too and reportedly tried to recruit BOTH of them to join the religion back in the day!

And they came pretty darn close too!

Brad studied Scientology in the early '90s while dating actress and long-time follower of the Church, Juliette Lewis. At that time, Pitt was involved in the "Purification Rundown" to try and kick a drug habit - a program Juliette claimed helped her overcome her own addictions.

It didn't take long for Brad to realize the religion (or Juliette) wasn't for him, but according to the niece of Church leader David Miscavige, the organization was determined to make him a member!

Jenna Miscavige Hill, who escaped from Scientology herself after 21 years inside, is now detailing what she says were plans drawn up by the Church to enlist Pitt and U2 frontman Bono! She says when it comes to recruiting new celebrity members, it's all about name recognition. Jenna explained:

Aww! It wasn't so long ago the world was reveling in one of their first public kisses!

These days, Ellie Goulding and her adorable actor boyfriend look totally and completely in love!

Cameras caught the Lights singer and her juicy man, Jeremy Irvine, wandering around the finer parts of London recently!

The dashing duo seemingly coordinated their cute but casual outfits for the charity function they attended at Tate Modern!

The 26-year-old starlet and her mountable man watched Paloma Faith perform as part of agit8 — an inspiring event started by rockstar/philanthropist Bono to help combat poverty!

Boo! We HATE thinking about the poor and destitute having to fend for themselves!

Thankfully, socially conscious celebz are making the world a better place!!

Matt Damon's Toilet Strike Takes Off!

With technology being as badass as it is these days, pretty much NOBODY on the planet should be without clean water! Matt Damon ESPECIALLY feels this way, hilariously talking about taking a "toilet strike" a few months ago to raise awareness for his humanitarian effort, Water.org. Basically he won't be going to the bathroom until everyone on the planet has clean water!

Then, amazingly, other celebrities joined his pledge to not expel their bodily waste until the issue was resolved — including Jason Bateman, Jessica Biel and Josh Gad!

Now, EVEN MORE are joining (above)! This time Olivia Wilde, Richard Branson, and Bono join up!

The PSA couldn't get funnier, even with the alarming REAL statistics thrown in: 780 million people (1 in 9) lack access to safe water.

This is a real cause that demands real attention. There's no reason why we can't have a laugh while helping the world!

Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart Narrowly Avoid Liberty Ross At Coachella!

robert pattinson kristen stewart liberty ross coachella run in avoided

Coachella is basically a huge celebrity party, so if you’re in the biz and going, you just know you might see an old friend enemy there!

And that’s exactly what Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart must have been afraid of as they headed out to the desert.

The reunited lovebirds were juuust lucky enough to miss crossing paths with Liberty Ross!

That’s right, Perezcious readers, things could have gotten down right nasty if KStew came into contact with Rupert Sanders’ estranged wife.

While Robsten was hitting the Coachella stomping grounds, Liberty was hanging with U2’s Bono at a nearby ranch.

Sounds like she’s not hurting too badly over her split!

Check out more pics of Robsten at Coachella (below)!

Bono Brings Daughter As Date To Oscar Party!

Filed under: BonoOscarsFamilyCeleb KidzCute KidzPerezcious Parenting

Bono is a rock-and-roll LEGEND so he can do what he damn-well-pleases.

So when he wants to take his lovely daughter Eve Hewson to two of the hottest Oscar parties in the country - who are we to question the U2 frontman.

Why would we anyway?

Look at her - she's gorgeous!

The two attended the Elton John AIDS fundraising bash AND the Vanity Fair after party!

No sign of Bono's wife or Eve's boyfriend, but that didn't spoil the amazing pictures we found of these two!

Daddy's little girl is all grown up, but in Bono's eyes she'll always be his precious baby.

So cute!!

See more pictures of this happy father-daughter duo (below) !!!
