The Video Music Awards always bring out the crazy side of the celebrities and they tend to be more risky and raunchy with their clothing. So I expected the standard of ‘yes’ outfits to be pretty low and I was correct. There aren’t many that I would consider great choices but I’ve managed to select the cream of the crop in my eyes.
Well, Simon Cowell did say he would announce the rest of his panel on Monday and he certainly didn’t disappoint.
Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio will join him and Demi Lovato on the panel.
Simon said in a statement: “It’s taken more than a decade but I’m delighted to finally be on a panel with three girls (I think!). Paulina and Kelly both have great taste and massive experience in the music industry and together with Demi, this is going to be a fun panel. It just feels like the time to do something different.”
I’m not surprised about Kelly because I thought she did a great job on the UK show and I reckon she will do really well this time around.
To be honest, I had no idea who Paulina Rubio! So let me fill you in: Paulina is a Mexican singer and actress who has been in the business since 1980s. She became known in America in 2000, when her sixth studio album, Paulina, sold two million copies. She is still an active singer and her last album, Brava!, reached no 2 in the US Latin charts in 2011.
I am surprised Simon didn’t pick someone more mainstream and well-known by everyone for the panel. I’m not really impressed with this year’s selection because we’ve had Kelly already and I don’t really know Paulina! In reality though, how was Simon going to top Britney Spears?!
I guess we have to watch to find out if he made the right choice!
Rihanna is certainly wearing a statement T-shirt while out in New York. Her risqué top shows a hand down some panties and implies masturbation! Lovely!
How I Met Your Mother
I love these guys! The various faces they pull in this continue to make me smile. The cast were at the CBS Upfronts presentation to talk about the ninth and final season of the show.
Demi has debuted another tattoo on her shoulder saying “now I’m a warrior”. Demi told Jimmy Fallon that “Warrior” is very personal and meaningful song to her. She said: “This is a song that was really difficult for me to write, record and now release. It was kinda like a tribute to releasing an album, as well as overcoming some really, really difficult things in my life.”
Heather’s bump is starting to show! The Glee storyline at the end of season 4 certainly suggests she won’t be coming back so perhaps she is going to take time out to look after herself and her baby.
Christina looks smoking hot! She is in such good shape.
Angelina’s double mastectomy news has bagged her the Time magazine front cover and rightly so. Go on lady!
Miley makes a point of putting her left hand prominently on display to prove she is still engaged to Liam Hemsworth. I’m loving the face she is pulling and those retro shades are funky. Miley looked hot in Valentino at the Maxim Hot 100 Party last night to celebrate her being crowned number one. Unfortunately a make-up fail left her with a two-tone face.
Thank god Amanda has got rid of those nasty extensions and shaved the side of her head, like Miley Cyrus. She looks so much like Miley in the pic below. I do prefer it to her recent style.
You don’t see celebrities deliberately taking pictures of themselves looking silly very often, so this is refreshing. And hilarious! She wrote: “Time for my grown up face” in the caption. What a legend!
Zac gets a bit smoochy with his co-star Halston Sage on the set of Townies. Zac will play a frat boy who pisses off neighbour Seth Rogen. It will great to see Zac do a proper comedy. I’m so jealous of this girl!
So that’s how you keep yourself looking so good! I wonder if Michael knew his wife, Luisana, was going to upload this hilarious pic! I love it when celebs goof around. Michael recently sung “Who’s Loving You” on the NYC subway for the early morning commuters. Check out the video at the bottom.
Chloe rocks some badass clothes in this shoot with Nylon magazine. It is very punk rock. Despite being 16, she has a very wise head on her shoulders claiming that she wouldn’t touch drugs because she could lose her career.
She said: “I look around me and go, ‘God’s put me here for a reason’.I’ve worked for 11 years, and I have to keep working, too, because if I sat back on my haunches right now, I could disappear within a month.This business is not peaches and cream, and I’ve fought tooth and nail to earn this spot. I’m not a girl who’s ridden on a last name or lucked into it from getting on one project that blows up.”
She sounds so much older than her years and she obviously takes her job very seriously. I’m sure she will be around for a lng time! Check out the other cool pics.
Check out Michael singing in the subway here:
Yep! Well she’s most definitely pregnant! She also revealed that her pregnancy was a total surprise.
She said: “This has been the biggest surprise of my life to tell you the truth. I thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me. So it’s been a big surprise and the most wonderful.”
What MUST you do when in Cuba?! Go to Club Tropicana of course! And that’s exactly what B and Jay-Z did. I wonder if the drinks are free?!
Check out Bieber’s new do. It is sort of like his old side-swept fringe but with a short buzz cut at the side, like Miley Cyrus. It is quite a feminine cut but I like it.
Look who Demi bumped into at the airport! Also, Gwyneth Paltrow was the one who asked her for a photo. Very cool.
The Hangover Part III
Here is the first look at John Goodman’s role in the final Hangover film. We still don’t know his name or his involvement with the Wolfpack but he sure looks angry with Zack Galifinakis, who plays Alan. Can’t wait!
How pretty does she look here?! The cover coincides with the finale of The Carrie Diaries. The show hasn’t yet been commissioned for a second season, and I doubt it will. Read why here. Loving the clashing prints below!
Imagine this for a boyband supergroup! Here we have Harry from One Direction, Dougie, Danny and Tom from McFly and Matt from Busted. What a group! It’s great to see they all get on at a party in London.
Check out Bradley’s perm! Those curls are pretty tight. Also, check the tan and the strong facial hair lines! Crazy transformation. Brads will be reunited with his Silver Linings co-star, Jennifer Lawrence, as well as director David O Russell in this FBI thriller. It also stars Christian Bale and Amy Adams. I hope they’re sporting crazy hairstyles too!
Demi uploaded this make-up free pic to Twitter to encourage followers to embrace their natural beauty. She wrote: “Ladies, be brave today.. take off your make-up and stop using those filters!! WE are beautiful!!” I have to say, Demi looks amazing without make-up!
Isla looks gorgeous here! Speaking to Fashion magazine, the Aussie revealed how she picks her red carpet dresses.
She said: “I have a stylist [Rachel Zoe] who styles Jennifer Lawrence and Anne Hathaway and whoever else. So they get all the dresses first, and then whatever they refuse – there are few, since they hang on to all the dresses until the very end – the couple left to choose that no one wants, I get that rack.Way down on the food chain is me, so I pick on those crumbs and usually it is the first dress that I try on that wins because I’m always in a rush. I’m happy to wear anything.”
I find that so hard to believe because she always looks amazing! Isla will next be seen in The Great Gatsby which is released next month.
Justin tried his hand at tattooing. Anything he can’t do?! The singer, who has plenty of his own, put some ink on celebrity tattoo artist Bang Bang. Check out the cartoon figure he drew!
Olly Murs & Niall Horan
Olly and Niall had a chest hair competition backstage at Olly’s O2 gig. I think Olly wins fair and square! Niall tweeted the pic with the caption, “Went to see the one and only @ollyofficial at the O2 arena!great show! Also me and him have matching chest hair.” Top lads!
Katy celebrated Easter with her family. Such a sweet pic! I don’t think the child is particularly impressed.
Stop looking at her hot bod for a minute and check out the ring finger. Is Hayden engaged?! Looks that way. She also posted this picture of her with possible fiancé Wladimir Klitschko. The pair only just went public with their rekindled relationship and he’s already put a ring on it!
Check out the album artwork that Demi leaked earlier. It is for her fourth album but it is uncertain if “Demi” is the title. I love the picture though, her eyes are very powerful.
You don’t generally see Rob doing anything other than filming/promotion, hanging out with Kristen or with mates down a pub/restaurant. It is rather unusual seeing him working on his fitness. He spent some time paddle boarding in Malibu.
Over here, we don’t usually find out who is on the judging panel until the last minute, but the X Factor US team have already confirmed that Demi Lovato will be returning to the show.
That is a very odd move for Simon Cowell because he usually likes to keep everyone guessing until the last minute, including those whose jobs are at stake. He just doesn’t make a definite decision until he absolutely has to.
However, both Demi, 20, and Simon confirmed the news in separate statements.
Demi said: “I am so excited to return as a judge and mentor on The X Factor. Last season was an unbelievable experience and I really enjoyed developing personal relationships with the contestants and the panel. I look forward to taking my previous experience and applying it to make this season even better.”
I find this a bit odd actually because Demi didn’t seem that up for another year when she finished the last season. She made it sound like it was a lot to deal with and she would rather concentrate on her music. I wonder what Simon did to twist her arm.
He said: “I couldn’t be happier that Demi wants to come back this year. She’s a superstar in her own right and was a fantastic mentor last year. Even though she can be really, really annoying – I truly enjoyed working with her and so did the artists. I’m especially pleased she’s back even during her world tour!”
Demi is doing a tour of North and South America from June to September. Although the show isn’t televised until September, the auditions round begin around June, so she will have to fit these in around her dates which will be pretty stressful.
It is uncertain who else will join the panel. LA Reid has already said he doesn’t want to do anymore and we just don’t know about Britney Spears. I guess we will have to wait and see. At least the US guys know two people- in the UK, we know no-one!
Demi Lovato revealed that she talked to her half-sister for the first time within the last year.
During at interview with a radio station, the Camp Rock actress revealed the personal family news, yet she wouldn’t comment on her possible relationship with Wilmer Valderrama.
She said; “I have an older sister I’ve never known my whole life, who’s in her 30s. She’s my half-sister, but I talked to her for the very first time in my life around when I turned 20.”
The 20-year-old singer said she rang her half-sister for the first time while waiting in an airport.
Talking of the phone call, she said;”I asked her, I said, ‘Why haven’t you ever contacted me?’ She said, ‘Well, I never wanted you to think I wanted anything from you. So I’ve just been kind of waiting to see if you wanted a relationship.’ I thought that was so incredible. So, I actually have three sisters.”
Demi has an older sister Dallas and younger half-sister Madison, from her mother’s re-marriage. She wouldn’t reveal her other half-sister’s name, whose side of the family she is from or how long she has known of her existence.
After a relatively normal award ceremony, the celebrities let loose on the many after-parties put on to celebrate this year’s Brit Awards.
There were loads of parties- Roc Nation at Hakkasan, Sony Music at the Arts Club, EMI’s on a riverboat, Universal and Island records at Soho House and lastly, Warner Music Group at the Savoy Hotel. Crikey!
Here are the highlights of the after parties.
She seemed to be chatting to everyone and had a go at DJing with Brit host James Corden.
Harry Styles & Nick Grimshaw
Best buds Harry and Grimmy had a massive night after the Brits- stopping at every party. Clearly drunk and thinking it was a great idea, Nick took Harry to work at Radio 1 at 6am. The pair hadn’t slept and found it hilarious that they were on air across the country while still a bit drunk. Perhaps Nick should have had a sensible night considering he does the Breakfast Show! Here they are in the Radio 1 photobooth:
I think everyone needs to appreciate the very large (and slightly wonky) rack on Holly! Miaow!
Simon seemed to be getting very close with a mystery blonde last night. Until he was interrupted by Harry…
Demi was rocking the pimp cane last night to help her get about. The poor girl ended up in a cast by simply slipping over on a newly polished floor! Crazy!
Kate Hudson & Matt Bellamy
Kate and Matt seem to be having a great time at the Savoy hotel- although I’m unsure why they’re stood on the sofas!
It looked like a wicked night. I’m so jealous!
