    Kylie Jenner's Second VMAs Outfit Is Even Sexier Than Her First - Huffington Post 2 hours ago

        Kylie Jenner never does anything halfway, so we were hardly surprised when her night celebrating the VMAs included a wardrobe change.   After attending the awards show, the newly turned 18-year-old slipped out of one short, tight Balmain dress into another. From there, Jenner headed to dinner at one of her favorite restaurants, Craig's, alongside her mom, Kris (and Kris' love interest, Corey Gamble), her sisters Kourtney and Kim, her brother-in-law, Kanye West, and of course, her boo, Tyga.  While this isn't what most people would wear to a family dinner, most people aren't Kylie Jenner.  Also on HuffPost: -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

While accepting her award for Best Hip-Hop Video, Minaj took the chance to call out host Miley Cyrus in what seemed to be a too-good-to-be-true VMAs fight. But was it staged? According to Entertainment Weekly and and E! News, not entirely. When Minaj wrapped up her acceptance speech, she threw the attention back on Cyrus saying, "And now, back to this b***h who had a lot to say about me the other day in the press. Miley, what's good?" The rapper was referring Cyrus' comments on the Minaj-Swift Twitter feud from a recent New York Times interview. The "Wrecking Ball" singer's reaction was so shocked that it's hard to believe she's faking it. EW reports that a source close to MTV confirmed the incident wasn't staged. According to an anonymous source from E! News, Cyrus was reportedly pretty upset about Minaj's surprise attack once she got backstage. "Miley was pissed," a source allegedly told E! News. "She stormed backstage cursing and yelling about it as she headed toward her dressing room." Cyrus hasn't mentioned the confrontation on Twitter yet, but Minaj made sure to laugh about it right after.

    Trump v. Eisenhower: No Experience Needed - Huffington Post 2 hours ago

        Quick: How many Presidents held no previous elected office? Four. Two war hero generals, Grant and Eisenhower (Washington was an elected Delegate to the First Continental Congress). Two one-termers, Taft and Hoover. All Republicans. Comes now the Donald. Accept, for the moment, every one of his self-described virtues. Business success, decisiveness, candor and outspokenness. Is the lack of experience with democratic government a real problem? Eisenhower is the most recent, but not the best, comparison. He had enormous political experience within the democratic institutions of American government, and internationally as the head of a fractious coalition that included Stalin, Churchill and DeGaulle. Grant, Taft, and Hoover are not much better, all served in government and knew the ins and outs of American politics. Trump is unique, which is his strength and his weakness. He has offered a vision of the Presidency that he is uniquely qualified to fill. "Get out of my way", "I'm in charge", "You're fired". It is good TV (I'm told). It's probably unconstitutional and unworkable. The great virtue of our constitutional system is that the power of any single person or institution is confronted by the power of other people and institutions. Call it "Checks and Balances" or "Separation of Powers;" it is the great gift of Madison and Jefferson to civil society. No one gets to exercise unfettered power. There is political power in the image of President Trump as Alexander the Great cutting the Gordian knot of Washington with a single stroke of his mighty sword. A lot of Americans want no part of two political parties they view as equally corrupt and out-of-touch. The know that money controls the government. They want more than someone they agree with; they want a transformational personality who will sweep away the detritus of a failed system. That's the heart of the late-2015 Trump surge. 2016 will test more than the Donald. It will require the American people to think this thing through. Trump v. the Constitution? Well, yes. But, can he keep his policy and political commitments within the existing constitutional framework? Probably not. Consider President's Trump's reaction to a Congress that won't pay for the Great Wall of Mexico. Or a Supreme Court that affirms that citizenship status of children born on U.S. soil to non-citizen parents. Smarter people than Trump had problematic reactions (See FDR, Court-packing). In fact, this is the great unasked question of the Trump surge. "How will you do all of this if the Congress or the Courts disagree?" Expect a grin and a parry at first. But persistent questioning by press or competitors will eventually make this a central question, especially for voters not on the nativist, right-wing fringe, but looking for a candidate who can really shake things up. Eisenhower he's not. But Trump's inexperience has been turned into a virtue. His outsider status is his essential appeal. He has a solid third of the Republican Party. But can he govern? Do voters care whether he can govern? And who will raise the issue in a politically effective way? -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

The pair, along with their mother Michelle, also participated in a prevention training seminar led by Darkness to Light, a leading abuse prevention organization.  "I was so glad that my girls and I were able to do this together and that we could just be a support and encouragement to each other to be able to gain more information about this important topic," said Michelle. Jill, 24, added, "It's amazing to understand that there are so many people that deal with this exact same thing in their own families. So just being educated is very good." The Duggar women attended the seminar following the news of their brother's molestation accusations. In May, it was confirmed that he sexually abused five underage girls (two of whom were his sisters) when he was just a teenager. However, TLC's documentary did not mention Josh at all. Instead, it focused on survivors of sexual abuse cases and told their stories.  Jessa, 22, who's pregnant with her first child, had a meaningful takeaway from the event. "I feel like this should be a discussion people are having, even regularly, she said. "I think that it shouldn't be a taboo subject, that we should be bringing awareness to child sexual abuse and talking about this." Jessa also said the seminar taught her "things I can do to be more aware, things I can do to set up boundaries and safeguards for my child and children, hopefully, in the future." The Duggars were just two of the survivors who shared their stories in the documentary special; another woman, Erin Merryn, was a central figure. Merryn, who was abused by two different men as a child, is aiming to pass Erin's Law (which requires age-appropriate curriculums on abuse) in all 50 states. Actress Teri Hatcher also spoke out, as did "Dancing with the Stars" pro Cheryl Burke.    Also on HuffPost:  For a constant stream of entertainment news and discussion, follow HuffPost Entertainment on Viber. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

        While hosting the 2015 VMAs, Miley Cyrus attempted to pull an Ellen for a younger demographic -- creating an Instagram pic with a selfie stick that was full of randomness.  In the moment, it was unclear if Cyrus' "most normal selfie ever," as she put it, would go viral -- it barely did -- and so Kim Kardashian rushed over to get in the shot. Kim Kardashian gonna Kim Kardashian pic.twitter.com/iFedZ4VjH0— Dave Itzkoff (@ditzkoff) August 31, 2015 It is unclear if the moment was staged, but Cyrus did request having Kylie Jenner get in the shot just beforehand. Jenner never joined the pic, but later in the night she did show support for Kanye West running for president on Instagram -- a photo that got almost double the hearts that Cyrus' thirsty attempt to go viral received. Then later, Jenner posted a couple photos of her simply standing at the VMAs and presenting an award that got even more hearts.

    Evangelicalism TRUMPS the Shark: What's a Messy Middle Christian To Do... - Huffington Post 1 hour ago

        This post originally appeared on Patheos. Do conservative evangelical Republicans really like Donald Trump? It certainly seems that some of the more intellectual evangelical leaders are not big fans, but it also seems that much of the evangelical populous, at least those that clearly identify as Republican, are. This is the only way that Trump could be leading in the polls, even among evangelicals. It also explains his upcoming meeting with evangelical heavies (at least in the celebrity/prosperity gospel world). Finally, it would seem to be the reason behind his recent attempts to convince us that the Bible is his favorite book -- you know, without being able to list his favorite verse or distinguish between Old and New Testaments. "I'm not gonna get into it," he says, in classic Trump-dodge style. Trump's rise in the early going of the GOP race has got me reflecting on how Christians like me ought to respond. I've written before about how I'm influenced by Wesleyan and anabaptist thought in lots of ways (in addition to charismatic/pentecostal thought) which kind of defines this messy middle place that I inhabit. I'm not conservative. I'm not a card-carrying progressive/liberal either. I'd rather find a way beyond these options entirely, like the "middle way" of the Wesleys and the "third way" of the anabaptists. With the latter, though, there has been a clear history of eschewing national politics in favor of a an ecclesial kind of alternative. That is, anabaptists (and even neo-anabaptists, in a neo kind of way) have honed in on the problem of compromising with violent empire when Christians engage in national politics, and prefer to locate the center of good social action in the society or "polis" of the church. This is at the heart of their opposition to Christendom -- the unholy alliance, beginning with Constantine, between church and empire-politics. I have resonated with this greatly, especially in witnessing the way the religious right and moral majority of my youth (and the Fox News Christian conservatism of the present) has compromised the heart of the gospel for an exclusionary, greedy, warmongering, and often compassionless lust for political control. Further, I've also seen the way more progressive or liberal churches often simply become promoters of Democrat social ideals and agendas -- or "chaplains of empire" as Walter Brueggemann might say. This anabaptist kind of impulse is essential in countering the easy capitulation to the culture of political expediency. It's essential to providing a prophetic witness against systemic war and greed, and the greed of war, and the war (on the poor) of greed.  But with Trump, it seems that conservative evangelicalism has officially jumped the shark. Or TRUMPED the shark, as the case may be. And it is forcing the issue of how we engage. Here, we have a man who literally embodies the greed of merciless and immoral corporate capitalism. Here, we have a man whose racism (especially in his hatred for undocumented immigrants) is not only overt, but seems entirely acceptable to both him and his passionate followers (some of whom now include card-carrying white supremacists). Here, we have a man whose mindless militarism and warmongering knows no bounds. I could hardly believe my ears when Ann Coulter "opened" for Trump this week by laughing about the daily "drone show" that we could conceivably watch while visiting the "tourist attraction" of Trump's wall on the U.S.-Mexican border. A drone show. Conversely, I spent the majority of my life in a very politically independent state, Vermont, and have witnessed and experienced the impact that government relief and empowerment programs (enacted at the national and local political levels) have on those struggling under enormous economic and social burdens. In the Nineties - the Nineties! - Vermont signed universal healthcare for its children into law. This is only one example of the countless ways the state supports its immigrants, impoverished, homeless, hungry, undereducated, at-risk, women, children, etc. Vermont was also the first state in the U.S. to legalize same-sex marriage through the legislative process. And Vermont, of course, is the state that produced another presidential candidate in this current race: Bernie Sanders.  Taken together, can a Christian with a godly sense of compassion and commitment to peace and justice morally justify not speaking out against a candidate like Trump - and voting against him too? Likewise, can a Christian morally justify not supporting (and voting for) the programs that, in very real and on-the-ground ways, save the lives of the least of these in our midst? Have we succumbed to ideology, and perhaps cynicism, if our opposition to empire leads us to complete separation or at least non-participation in the very real political process that affects very real lives? Wesley is perhaps helpful here. Instead of detachment from English politics, he sought to champion liberty and support the monarchy insofar as it acted justly. In a very chastened way, he even approved of preaching a little politics in the pulpit. He roundly opposed anarchy, and championed social relief, justice, and the common good, both at individual and collective/societal levels. Yes, he also opposed the American revolution (like a good English monarchist), but I digress. I am becoming convinced more than ever that being a Christian in this messy middle means taking a Wesleyanabaptist approach to national (and local) politics. Namely, we must have it clear in mind that the church is, in true Hauerwasian fashion, a body politic entirely distinct from human empires. Its witness must first and foremost consist in shaping an alternative society, rooted and grounded in Christian conversion. To be the people of God means to live in a way other than the violent empires all around us. The King and his kingdom are of foremost concern - in the already expression of the worshiping church's salting and lighting the world, and the not yet of the fully restored reign of God in Jesus to come. This is where our ultimate hope lies; this is our ultimate "fight"; and placing our ultimate hope in political power is not only foolish but a dangerous pursuit for the Christian, and the thing that created the whole Christendom mess in the first place. And, in true Wesleyan fashion, perhaps with a Brueggemannian twist, the church must become a prophetic witness to the empire, actively opposing its violences and racisms and injustices. As it receives and speaks "the word from elsewhere", it must impact the empire here and now. It must certainly do this through grass-roots means, but I believe it cannot neglect to do this by engaging with the political process, particularly through voting. I know that the question of holding political office is an especially difficult one considering the tacit endorsement of America's warring (and other wrongs) that it might entail. But to reject speaking out and voting on the basis of separation from empire (while taking part in most other functions of living in the empire) seems to me an ideological fail and a denial of our very real responsibility to love our neighbor. We need not just common but kingdom grace in engaging with the political process in order to love our neighbor as we love ourselves, all while giving witness to the already and not yet kingdom of God that one may enter by bowing the knee to Jesus. And by all means, we must give witness against this disastrous behavior from some of our brothers and sisters who insist on Trumping the shark.

    Zac Efron's 'We Are Your Friends' Has One Of The Worst Openings Of All... - Huffington Post 1 hour ago

        Zac Efron's "We Are Your Friends" got no love from friends, or pretty much anyone else, this weekend at the box office.  "We Are Your Friends" debuted at just $1.8 million with a wide-release in 2,333 theaters. It now sits at No. 4 on Box Office Mojo's worst wide openings of all time (based on the site's data collection from 1982 onward). The only films with openings more dismal include: "Oogieloves In The BIG Balloon Adventure" ($443,901); "Delgo" ($511,920); and "Saw 10th Anniversary" ($650,051).  The film, about an aspiring DJ and co-starring supermodel Emily Ratajkowski, was apparently a personal one for Efron.  "This was a passion project for Zac Efron, and we believe in him," Warner Bros. executive VP for domestic distribution Jeff Goldstein told The Hollywood Reporter. "Yes, the result was disappointing, but this was a small film." Warner Bros. paid just $2 million to distribute the film in North America, but tracking suggested the film would open around $8 million, CNN reported.  YourEDM.com's Kspence had some ideas about why the film performed so poorly:  Let’s start with the plot: a washed up DJ and his girlfriend work with a slightly clueless DJ and his bronies to try and make it big. It completely romanticizes the idea of EDM, leaving out the real intricacies and killing its credibility. Bonus negative points for dumbing down Emily Ratajkowski‘s role to generic female lead and having no other females represented in the film. Lack of support from anyone in the dance music industry didn’t help either." "We Are Your Friends" has a 43 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes with an average one of 5/10. Critics called it a "clichéd coming-of-age story as programmed as the soundtrack's beats."    Also on HuffPost:  For a constant stream of entertainment news and discussion, follow HuffPost Entertainment on Viber. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
