Oprah Winfrey To Be Awarded Her OWN Medal Of Freedom!

oprah(2)

You win a car Medal of Freedom! And you win a Medal of Freedom! And…okay, fine, when we say "you" we're really just referring to Oprah Winfrey.

President Obama announced today that Oprah would be among those awarded the Medal of Freedom for saving Lindsay Lohan sharing their "extraordinary talent" with the world.

Knowing Oprah, her medal will be tucked away under her seat at the Kennedy Center during the ceremony and will come with a brand..new..CAAA-AAAR!

We're so proud of Oprah. She's won Emmys, she's been nominated for an Oscar (she get another nod and win one for The Butler), and now she's winning the Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor?

Gurl, Lance Armstrong better interview YOU to see if you take steroids, because you're unstoppable!

Taylor Swift Is Really THAT Surprised Every Time She Wins An Award, So Leave Her "O" Face Alone!

Poor Taylor Swift!

No one will let her wear genuine emotion on her face in peace!

As the country cutie has been the subject of parody on numerous occasions for always appearing genuinely shocked whenever she is the recipient of an accolade at award ceremonies, which we ALL know is for her, a commonplace occurrence, she was asked to respond to those who question her modesty in these occasions on Nightline!

Ch-ch-check out what she has to say (above)!

Well, no, gurl! We don't really think it's that crazy anymore!

You're a supremely talented young lady, so you deserve every award you receive!

But we DO appreciate that you accept every one of them as though it's your first, so don't let the haters get you down…and keep on dropping that jaw like it suddenly doubled in its weight!

Mariah Carey may be best known for her INCREDIBLE voice - and more recently, her role as a judge this season on American Idol - but it's perhaps a lesser-known fact that she is also a talented songwriter, having penned some of her own biggest hits!

Taylor Swift Is The Billboard Music Awards' Woman Of The Year!

You said it best, Zooey Deschanel!

Most 22-year-old girls hanging out in Las Vegas are not NEARLY as philanthropic as Taylor Swift!

The country cutie was the proud recipient of the 2012 Billboard Music Awards' Woman of the Year, and of course, remained as charming and humble as ever as she accepted the accolade, with her misty-eyed mother proudly watching from the audience!

Ch-ch-check her out (above)!

We're jut as proud, gurl!

Don't you ever change!

Such an unbelievable honor!

Even though Josh Hutcherson never had the opportunity to meet his two gay uncles, who, as we reported, tragically passed away from AIDS before he was born, they clearly have inspired The Hunger Games star to step up and become a passionate advocate for the LGBT community, and work closely with the group Straight But Not Narrow!

Enough so to mark him as the youngest recipient of the Vanguard Award at the upcoming GLAAD Media Awards, and in light of the honor, he's speaking out for the first time about his late relatives!

He explains:
