This awards season has been all about The Help, but for the cast it's been all about, well, their boobs. First Viola Davis wowed us with her impressive display of cleavage at the NAACP Image Awards, then discussed how it was all a delightful accident, and now Octavia Spencer is getting in on the action. While most celebs head to In-N-Out to celebrate after the Oscars, Spencer, who is up for Best Supporting Actress, says she plans to treat herself to a boob lift once everything is wrapped up. "I am going to get my boobs lifted. That's going to be my first gift. I figured going into my forties I want my boobs where they were when I was 17," said the 41-year-old. "Right after the Oscars I start a Diablo Cody movie. We're taping out of the country for four months so I wouldn't be back here until about August. I would want to do this around November. Then that way I could just relax until January." [US]

You know when your baby brother or sister – who is now in their early-to-mid twenties but you still refer to them as your baby brother and sister because that's how they'll forever be etched in your mind – says something that indicates that they've had real-life actual sex and your brain breaks? That's kind of what happens when I see Zac Efron, 24, accidentally drop a condom on the red carpet at The Lorax premiere. Babies having babies! Or not, as the case may be. [ONTD]

They've both been getting a lot of play in the media recently, albeit for different reasons, but Adele is officially more popular than Whitney Houston – at least when it comes to the longest running number one album by a female artist on the Billboard charts. Though Whitney previously held the title with "The Bodyguard" album, Adele's "21" has just surpassed it by reaching 21 consecutive weeks at the top, which is pretty phenomenal because Whit held on to the 20-week record for 20 years.

It turns out that Bobby Brown didn't only skip out on Whitney's funeral only because his entourage was banned, it was also over his displeasure with a perfectly reasonable seating disagreement. Classy. [E!]
Unsurprisingly, any Beverly Hilton staffers who talked to the press about Whitney's death have now been fired. [Radar]

Academy Award organizers are so nervous about the guaranteed carry-on that would come of him turning up as his character from The Dictator that they've banned Sacha Baron Cohen from attending altogether – unless, that is, he promises to be a good boy. "We've made our position clear to Mr. Cohen's team. We'd love to have him at the show, but the ball is in his court," says a rep. "The position we took was, 'We would not like you to do this.' We're just waiting to hear back from him. We'd love to have him at the show, to have him celebrate with the rest of the Hugo team, and we're just waiting." [E!]

Attending a preview of Cindy Sherman's MoMA retrospective would be exciting enough, but guests were also treated to an impromptu floorshow when an attendee slapped her male companion across face following a discussion about sexism and misogyny. "I can't believe you think you have to have lived in the photograph to understand it!" she said as she gave him a quick one-two in front of guests including Debbie Harry, John Waters, Molly Ringwald and Martha Stewart. Street theatre at its best. [Page Six]

I know I probably shouldn't being that she is not me, it is her body, and she is a grown ass woman that can make her own decisions, butttt a part of me feels disappointment upon reading Octavia Spencer's statement. I get that it's a gift of whatever but, I don't know. Like, I am most anti-plastic surgery. Mainly because I feel like, if you feel bad about yourself, and have low self esteem, a quick fix is not going to solve it entirely? Also, even it does, I'm more of a traditionalist in that, you should work on self confidence organically. Start loving what you see in the mirror, without having to make some drastic surgical alteration to it.

For example, I was born with left side facial paralysis, and my ear stopped growing when I was a baby. As a result I speak out the side of my mouth in a twisted way,(think Alicia Keys), and my smile is crooked. I also had to go through twelve different surgeries to reconstruct my ear because it stopped growing, and because I could not hear on that side. When I was in my teens I still had one more operation left which would have finished the cosmetic stuff on my ear, and made it look exactly like the other one. But you know what? I said fuck it. I'll keep my mashed in, cartilage/scarred ear. Everyone else will just have to fuck off. I got teased mercilessly for my "flaws", but that never stopped me from smiling, never stopped me from wearing my hair back in ponytails, and buns. It also never stopped me from rocking my surgery scars, (one rib scar, and two scars on my ass from skin grafts.) And it damn sure didn't stop me from becoming successful in modeling as well. ( I was a glamour model at that. I wore skimpy ass bikinis, and rocked that shit!) People stopped teasing me once they realized that at the end of the day, I still viewed myself as the baddest thing walking, and no matter how much society told me different, I still put myself on the pedestal. It is all about your attitude and confidence.

All of that to say, I have been there, and maybe that's I dont have as much empathy towards it. You can love your body, and embrace your "issues", no scalpel necessary.
