The BET HONORS 2011Celebrity of the Week:

Jamie Foxx earned his spot as The Daily Aztec’s celeb of the week for winning the 2013 MTV Generation Award at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles last Sunday. Candidates for this award are people who have taken on an array of impressive roles; someone personable and memorable with exceptional talent. In 2004, Foxx became the third African-American to win an Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in “Ray.” He won a Grammy in 2010 for the single “Blame It.” You can catch him in his most recent film, “Django Unchained.” His upcoming flicks include “White House Down” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”

 

Sightings: 

Unless you live under a rock, you’ve probably heard weekend marked the start of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, a mega music festival in Indio lasting two weekends. A slew of celebrities, including Katy Perry, Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio, Lindsay Lohan, Julianne Hough, Clint Eastwood, Sofia Bush and Leonardo DiCaprio were captured among the crowd listening to music, playing carnival-type games or attending exclusive pool parties under the hot desert sun. We wonder which celebs will be coming out for the second weekend.

Controversy seems to be surrounding Justin Bieber lately while he was on the European leg of his tour, and it didn’t stop when he visited the Anne Frank House Museum in Amsterdam on Friday evening. After touring the museum with his entourage, Bieber wrote in the guestbook, “Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber.”

When news broke of his comment, celebrities such as Emmy Rossum responded, saying, “Anne Frank suffered WW2 and Justin Bieber hopes she would have been a fan? I have no words.” In Bieber’s defense, a source close to the teen singer told E! News, “One of the guides pointed out that Anne was a big fan of pop culture of her time and that she might have been a fan of his, which led to what he wrote.”

 

Romance:

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were seen holding hands while walking around Coachella last weekend.  It’s the most recent sighting of the couple since Stewart’s birthday when the couple was spotted looking for a puppy as a present for her.

Jessica Simpson celebrated her baby shower at the Bel-Air Hotel garden on Sunday. The shower was bright and colorful as friends and family, including Simpson’s sister Ashley., celebrated the anticipated baby boy. Simpson said she’d like to stop having kids after her son is born, according to an article on E! Online. This is her second child with husband Eric Johnson. They welcomed their first child, a girl named Maxwell, about a year ago.
