Before crashing Twitter with her A-list selfie, Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres prepped for hosting duties wearing her emotions on her “sleeve” in Miami-based designer Alina Villasante’s Peace Love World “i am happy” hoodie. DeGeneres even posted a shot of her comfy backstage wardrobe choice on her now popular Instagram account before heading into the show.

Hot bars

Nightclub & Bar's Top 100 list of the highest-grossing nightclubs in the country included several Miami hot spots.

Vegas clubs still reign in the top four spots, but LIV reeled in a whopping $40-$45 million total revenue taking the city's top spot at No. 5, while LIV's sister club Story came in at No. 8 with $25-$30 million. Mango's was at No. 12 with $20-$25 million, the Clevelander at No. 27 with $15-$20 million, SET at No. 36, Mansion at No. 44 and Club Space at No. 54, the last three all raking in between $10 million and $15 million last year.

    Cameron Diaz defends bestie Drew Barrymore

    Don’t mess with Cameron Diaz, at least when it comes to her friends. During the around the world media blitz for her latest bomb Sex Tape, the actress called in to Australia’s KIIS 106.5’s Kyle & Jackie O show, and cut short an interview with co-host Kyle Sandilands after he made a comment about her Charlie’s Angels costar Drew Barrymore. Sandilands remarked that the girl in the raunchy comedy (Giselle Eisenberg) reminded him of Barrymore in ET, adding snarkily that he hoped she didn’t go down the same path of drug use. Diaz hit back: “I’m sure, Kyle, you’ve never been through a drug phase, have you? Or alcoholism or anything like that? Pretty clean; always did it right? Congratulations,” then cut the interview short and hung up.
