The Boy Scouts of America has made a big change.

The organization voted Monday to end its decades-long ban on gay scout leaders, with the decision being approved by 79 percent of the national executive board, who met on Thursday.

They ultimately came to the conclusion that the policy of excluding gay adults "was no longer legally defensible," according to NBC News.

But there is one thing—while the lift on the gay ban is effective immediately, the report states local scouting units retain the ability to reject gay applicants for leadership positions if hiring them would violate the unit's religious beliefs.

"This change allows Scouting's members and parents to select local units, chartered by organizations with similar beliefs, that best meet the needs of their families," said a statement from the Scouts' leadership.

"For far too long this issue has divided and distracted us," former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Scouting's current president, said in a statement. "Now it's time to unite behind our shared belief in the extraordinary power of Scouting to be a force for good in a community and in the lives of its youth members."

Although this move is a big step for the organization, other rights organizations argue that there's still work to be done.

"Today's vote by the Boy Scouts of America to allow gay, lesbian and bisexual adults to work and volunteer is a welcome step toward erasing a stain on this important organization," said Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin in a statement after the vote. "But including an exemption for troops sponsored by religious organizations undermines and diminishes the historic nature of today's decision."

 

 

Kate Upton is getting cheeky with her latest Instagram post!

The 23-year-old model took to Instagram on Sunday to share a photo that highlights her bare butt (you're welcome!)

"Happy Sunday! #buttday #bruceweber #sundayfunday," the blond beauty wrote yesterday. The pic shows Upton modeling a semi-see through dress during a high fashion photo shoot with photographer Bruce Weber. Upton faces away from the camera, giving fans a perfect view of her naked bum underneath the gorgeous gown. Meanwhile, Upton's blond locks it up in an intricate hairdo.

 

 

When it comes to engagement photos, a lot can go wrong. You can have a spray tan accident the day before. You could accidentally snot all over your face from all the crying. Or, if you're like this couple, you could inadvertently announce to the world you enjoy anal sex.

How did that happen? Well, this couple apparently have the initials A.N. and A.L. When they got engaged at what appears to be a Benihana (why would you do it there?!), it looks like the boyfriend wrote their initials in rice on the flattop with a sweet little heart in the middle. Adorable in theory, but in execution it looked like this:

The photo was posted to reddit for the entire world to see under the caption: "I don't think they thought out this engagement photo."

Can you imagine if they showed this photo, a photo that basically says they love anal, to the girl's parents to break the engagement news?

Regardless of the photo fail, this couple just got engaged and we're excited for them. Congrats, you two! Please think twice, however, before using your initials on any wedding décor. Heaven forbid you get "ANAL" printed all over the cake.

 

 

David Beckham has gone under the needle again.

This time, the former soccer star is memorializing his love for daughter Harper, 4, with the words "Pretty Lady" accompanying a 2011 tat of her name on the side of his neck. In a few photos shared on Instagram, Beckham didn't even flinch throughout the painful process and later proudly showed off his new ink.

"Hey Pretty Lady....," the hunky father of four captioned the pic alongside a heart emoji. "Just adding to the collection of tattoos that mean so much to me..."

The new tattoo comes a couple of weeks after Beckham celebrated his darling daughter's fourth birthday. In addition to "a fun packed day with her little friends," Beckham shared with fans a throwback daddy-daughter moment of an infant Harper cuddling up to her proud father. 

"Possibly my favourite picture of Harper of all time... 4 beautiful years with the most amazing little girl... Happy birthday big girl...," the 40-year-old captioned the photo. 

Though this is far from Beckham's first tat—wife Victoria Beckham and sons Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 12, and Cruz, 10, all share real estate on David's bod—it probably won't be his last.

Just days ago, Beckham shared a pinky tattoo of the number 99, which references the year when he married the Spice Girls alum and took home major trophies with his former Manchester United team.

 

 

Another big stride for acceptance and respect in the mainstream has been made for the trans community—and, more specifically, in the fashion world.

Apple Model Management, a Bangkok-based agency, is opening a division in Los Angeles that will cater exclusively to transgender models, as The Advocate first reported. Apple's announcement comes on the hinges of a growing transgender equality movement, with actress Laverne Cox and Olympian Gold Medalist Caitlyn Jenner at the forefront in the media. Model Andreja Pejic, meanwhile, made waves when she was tapped as the face of Make Up For Ever's "Be Bold" ad series—becoming the first trans model to land a major cosmetics campaign.

"Our strong commitment to developing them as successful models is never about quantifying or qualifying their gender," Cecilio Asuncion, Apple's L.A. director, toldThe Advocate. "It's never a question of if they are women or men, it's about their passion and commitment to being the best possible models they can be."

Six transgender women are already on the agency's lineup, with scouts searching for more trans men and women to represent. Change has never looked this good.

 

 

You tell 'em, Khloé Kardashian!

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star appears on the cover of Complex's August/September issue, and let's be honest, she's never looked hotter. She looked so hot, in fact, that some people accused the magazine of airbrushing the E! star's appearance a little too much. Not one to mince words, Kardashian fired back by sharing an unretouched photo via Instagram Monday and silencing her haters.

"This one is for all the troll haters out there that cannot seem to give me an ounce of credit for my daily workouts! The image on the left is an unretouched photo from the actual camera on the day of the shoot. The image on the right is the retouched photo. Yes skin is smooth and shadows are removed but I still think I look good on the left image. Flaws and all," she told her 27.7 million followers. "Hi hater!!!"

Kardashian added, "Click on it...I know you want to."

Several fans came to her defense:

Kardashian was touched by the support she received after sharing the before-and-after photos. "How sweet are you guys!" she tweeted. "I love you guys and I see all the positivity and love! I'm so blessed."

So, how does the 31-year-old look so fabulously fit?

Kardashian works with Beverly Hills-based personal trainer Gunnar Peterson. "We focus on different body parts," she explained to E! News in April. Regarding their workout sessions, she said, "We're making me [leaner] rather than big and bulky."

"I try to work out five days a week," she said. "It's a lot, but I feel great when I do it. On the weekend I have a gym in my community. I try to do cardio. You just turn on some junk TV and you don't realize what you're doing, and I love that. I used to not watch what I ate. I would just kind of eat whatever. I was realizing, 'I work out all the time. Why can't I drop this weight?' It's really food. So I started dieting a little. I don't eat dairy anymore—or I try not to, because I'm addicted to cheese!"

 

 

When it comes to Taylor Swift vs. Katy Perry, we'll be the first to admit that we're Team Taylor. We're also the first to admit that we really wish these two would just try and make amends and stop with the back and forth, regardless of whatever transpired between them. Both parties probably did something wrong so y'all should just apologize, let it go and remember you don't have to like each other, but there is no need to cut each other down.

And that's the end of our Katy Perry-Taylor Swift rant! Now, on with the show!

During her 1989 tour stop in Foxborough, Mass. over the weekend, Taylor may have taken a jab at Katy while performing "Bad Blood" onstage. After last week's Taylor-Nicki Minaj-Katy Twitter brouhaha, it's clear that there is still mad beef between the two pop stars. Was this concert stunt just another clapback, courtesy of Taylor?

Yes. Or no, depending on who you believe.

During the song, which is allegedly about Katy backstabbing Taylor, a backup dancer held up a stuffed shark puppet, which made Taylor let out a little laugh. And since most people now associate sharks with Katy Perry's Superbowl halftime show (remember that the Right Shark was the real winner that night, not the Left Shark), social media is buzzing that the moment was a mini diss.

However, Taylor fans were quick to shoot down that theory because apparently during that moment in every show, that dancer does something weird to surprise Taylor. She even expects it now, which is why she was already turning toward the glass when the shark popped up. It's a wee little prank, if you will. If you watch videos of "Bad Blood" from other shows, you do see the dancer doing something silly at that part of the song, like pressing his face against the glass and making a funny face.Of course, you can speculate that the dancer picked a shark on purpose to shade Katy; the timing does seem very suspicious given that the Twitter feud just happened a couple days before the show.

Or maybe Taylor just really likes puppet sharks and her dancer is the only who knows about her secret obsession. And he was trying to give her the confidence to let the world know about her love of puppet sharks.

Yeah, we're going to go with the "Taylor's obsessed with puppet sharks" theory. Check out the video and tell us what you think is going on during "Bad Blood," besides Swifty just straight slaying it.

 

 

Bobby Brown has broken his silence after the tragic death of his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown. "Krissy was and is an angel. I am completely numb at this time. My family must find a way to live with her in spirit and honor her memory. Our loss is unimaginable," the entertainer told E! News in a statement Monday. "We thank everyone for the prayers for Krissy and our family as we mourn my baby girl."

Funeral plans have yet to be announced.

"Yesterday Bobbi Kristina Brown took her place in heaven," the New Editionsinger's lawyer also said in a statement Monday. "Krissy fought to get well for months. However, she has succumbed to her injuries."

Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in her bathtub on Jan. 31, nearly three years after her mother, Grammy Award winner Whitney Houston, was found dead in a bathtub. Bobbi Kristina was place in a medically induced coma soon after, and in June, she was transferred to hospice care as her health "continued to deteriorate," her aunt, Pat Houston, said in a statement to E! News at the time.

In spite of their differences, the Brown and Houston families rallied around Bobbi Kristina in the last months of her life.

"Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July 26, 2015, surrounded by her family," the Houston family told E! News in a statement late Sunday. "She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months."

Calvin Harris just made the summer a little bit hotter.

In December, the DJ became the new face (and body) of Armani's clothing and accessories collections, and in February 2015, underwear campaign images were released for the clothing company's spring/summer 2015 season.

Now, on Monday (July 27), Harris teased the new fall/winter campaign on his Twitter account with a photo of him stripped down to nearly nothing, showing off his extremely toned six-pack.

Harris' new single makes a sexy debut on the Billboard Hot 100 this week. "How Deep Is Your Love," a collaboration with the Disciples, debuts at No. 60 this week. Model Gigi Hadid -- a good friend of Harris' girlfriend Taylor Swift -- teased a picture of her starring in the music video for the new single.

 

 

There are no obvious signs someone tried to kill Bobbi Kristina ... this according to the preliminary autopsy results.

According to the Fulton County Medical Examiner, the autopsy shows "no obvious underlying cause of death."  The Medical Examiner goes on to say, "no significant injuries were noted."

Short story ... this could help Nick Gordon, who has been under the police microscope from the get-go.

The report says there were no previously unknown medical conditions that could have rendered Bobbi Kristina unconscious in the bathtub.

But the Medical Examiner says he has subpoenaed medical records, presumably from the hospital, to determine if drug testing after the accident was relevant. Gordon has said both he and Bobbi Kristina had been doing drugs and she took too much.

The Medical Examiner says he will not determine a cause of death until he reviews the records.

 

 

The battle for Minute Maid Park is over ... and the Houston Astros have won -- with Taylor Swift agreeing to reschedule a concert date that would have conflicted with an Astros playoff game. 

Swift was originally scheduled to perform at MMP on October 13th -- which could have conflicted with a playoff game if the team makes the post-season.

FYI -- the Astros were expected to suck this season, but managed to put together a 55-45 record so far ... and are just one game behind the Angels for control of the American League West. 

But now, Swift has apparently agreed to move the date up ... with the Astros announcing her concert will now take place on September 9th instead. 

You don't believe in jinxes ... do you?

 

 

Shia LaBeouf and girlfriend Mia Goth were involved in a big fight in Europe on Friday evening, and ET has obtained exclusive video of the incident.

In the video Goth -- who is in Tubingen, Germany to film an upcoming horror movie, according to local reports -- and LaBeouf are seen yelling at each other outside a taxi cab by a hotel on Friday night.

The 29-year-old LaBeouf, wearing a baseball cap, T-shirt and shorts, then walks away and meets several German locals, who offer to drive him to the airport. After he gets into their car, Goth, 22, returns and takes his backpack, begging him not to go.

"I don't wanna touch you. I don't wanna be aggressive. This is the kind of s**t that makes a person abusive," LaBeouf tells Goth after he steps out of the car, getting visibly upset.

He is then heard pleading with Goth, now wearing his backpack, to return it to him, repeatedly saying to her, "Can I have my bag please?," "I just want my bag" and "Please just give me my bag."

At one point during their confrontation, LaBeouf is seen putting his hands up as she approaches him.

Some time later, with his backpack back in his possession, LaBeouf makes a chilling statement en route to the airport.

"If I'd have stayed there, I would have killed her," he says.

Appearing dejected, LaBeouf says, "It's hard bro -- really f**ked up -- in your heart."

During the car ride, LaBeouf makes an unsuccessful attempt to Facetime hisTransformers co-star Megan Fox and subsequently starts smoking. The conversation with the German men then turns to guns.

"I have no gun," one of the German locals says. "That's not normal, it's Europe," LaBeouf says in response.

"You can't buy a gun anywhere. You can't," the German replies, to which the actor says, "They don't sell them."

When the German asks if he is heading to L.A., LaBeouf says, "I'm going to Texas." It is unclear whether that was his intended destination.

The group arrives at the airport with the German locals offering to take LaBeouf, who seems to have sustained an injury to his hand, to the hospital. He tells one of the men, "You saved my life man."

"This is a contract. You come to Los Angeles, I'll pick you up in my car, you come and stay at my house," LaBeouf tells the men.

The day after the incident, Goth was reportedly seen with a black eye, German tabloid Pure Starsreported.

ET has reached out to LaBeouf and Goth's reps for comment.

LaBeouf and Goth met during the filming of Lars von Trier's erotic NC-17 sex drama, "Nyphomaniac." They have been romantically linked since 2012, with rumors swirling that the couple is engaged, after Goth was seen sporting a massive ring in March.

Last month, video surfaced of LaBeouf freestyle-rapping to a crowd of people, where he slammed the "Transformers" franchise and declared himself the "best in the West." He was later accused of plagiarism. That came just days after LaBeouf was hurt on the North Dakota set during filming of "American Honey," sustainingminor injuries to his head and hand. The mishap reportedly happened during a scene in which he was supposed to smash his hand through a glass window.

The NY Post claims JLo's birthday cake was accidentally delivered to the wrong club. Bakers took it to the venue where she celebrated the night before. The cake was finally delivered to the correct club where JLo kissed Casper Smart and then blew out the candles.

A source tells Celeb Dirty Laundry that Casper was very protective at the party. ''He was very protective of her, even scolding fans who tried to take a photo of her. He seemed more like a bodyguard at times, but she was oblivious and having a great time, laughing, taking selfies and throwing her arms around him.”

The National Enquirer claims Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have a special clause in their prenup. A source tells the tabloid: “Mila really wants another child with Ashton, but she doesn’t want to learn he’s sleeping around on her! He’s strayed before, but if he does it again, $25 million is a nice consolation prize for Mila!”

 

A San Diego man is suing Conan O’Brien and TBS claiming they stole his jokes from Twitter. Robert Kaseberg claims jokes about Caitlyn Jenner, Tom Brady and others were used in Conan's monologue.

His lawsuit cites the following jokes:

Kaseberg wrote: “A Delta flight this week took off from Cleveland to New York with just two passengers. And they fought over control of the armrest the entire flight.”

O’Brien said: “On Monday, a Delta flight from Cleveland to New York took off with just two passengers. Yet somehow, they spent the whole flight fighting over the armrest.”

Kaseberg wrote: “The Washington Monument is ten inches shorter than previously thought. You know the winter has been cold when a monument suffers from shrinkage.”

O’Brien said: “Surveyors announced that the Washington Monument is ten inches shorter than what’s been recorded. Of course, the monument is blaming the shrinkage on the cold weather.”


O’Brien’s production company says: “We at Conaco firmly believe there is no merit to this lawsuit.”

 

 

Gossip Cop claims thieves recently broke into Rob Schneider’s home and stole his rare, 1951 Willie Mays rookie card. It is worth $175,000. Rob was at a comedy fest at the time of the robbery. His wife was at dinner. The card is so rare that thieves are going to have a hard time selling it.

 

Hollywoodlife.com claims Kris Jenner isn't ready to meet Caitlyn Jenner face-to-face. A source tells the site: “Kris isn’t at a place yet where she wants her first meeting with Caitlyn to be televised. The whole thing is still so out of her comfort level. This is the person Kris was married to and had children with. Interacting with Caitlyn is not something she’s come to terms with. I think Kris still feels like the world is judging her for how she treated Bruce in the marriage, and asking questions like ‘How could you have not known?’ Her ego is still bruised in a major way.''

 

David Beckham made one big fan's dream come true!

Fan Andy Moss, who has been diagnosed with cancer, created a video reading off his bucket list. One of his items was to meet soccer star David Beckham.

Moss' wife Leyla helped in making her husband’s dream come true, by taking to the internet and starting the hashtag #AndyWantsToMeetDavidBeckham. Simon, Beckham's manager, made the magic happen after he caught wind of Leyla's efforts, according to Mirror.

The soccer star visited and spent time with Andy and his family, while accompanied by wife Victoria, son Brooklyn, and daughter Harper. The Beckham family paid for the Moss' travel expenses and even took them out to dinner. Their heartwarming encounter was shared all over social media by Moss’ wife and Brooklyn Beckham. Leyla captioned that she and her family will, "never forget this day."
