The MTV VMAs were incredibly underwhelming

rih1

The Video Music Awards are the awards show I look forward to the most because it is usually fun, packed with celebs having a good time and present some shocking or ridiculous behaviour. I caught up with the show last night and tbh, I was so bored and tired I almost stopped watching. When did the VMAs become so average and underwhelming?

Kanye West’s Famous video is pure genius

kanye1

Kanye West‘s music video for Famous dropped on Friday and it has caused quite a scandal. It basically features celebrities (or their lookalikes) all naked in bed, in a recreation of the Vincent Desiderio painting Sleep. It is shocking, a bit creepy, has a sex-tape vibe but it is ultimately very powerful and illustrates his entire point about fame.

Video Music Awards: Best & Worst Dressed

I haven't counted Katy because hers was done in humour. Very reminiscent of Britney & JT!!

I haven’t counted Katy because hers was done in humour. Very reminiscent of Britney & JT!!

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.

Big Pics: Ke$ha, Harry Styles & Vanessa Hudgens

Ke$ha

kesha1

Not entirely sure why Kesha has posted a random, naked picture onto her Instagram. I think she has a thong on. Check out the single cover for her next track, Crazy Kids, featuring Will.I.Am. I like the song, I recommend you give it a listen.

Harry Styles

Harry won at bowling with his friends. What a cool kid.

Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa looks bloody cool. She is here with Ashley Tisdale and their friend Kim Hildago. The trio had a Scary Movie 5 date night, so Ashley was watching herself!

Amber Rose

amber

This is taking commitment a bit far! I always think getting a tattoo of your partner is bad idea but Amber has gone much further than that by getting a full-blown picture of Wiz Khalifa on her arm. BAD IDEA.

Tilda Swinton

What on earth has W magazine done to Tilda?! This is such an odd shot! They’ve added centipedes in afterwards, but for what purpose?! Check out the other crazy shot below.

Big Pics: Hunger Games, Zac Efron & Ashley Tisdale

Hunger Games

Lionsgate has released another still from the upcoming Catching Fire. They are getting us excited even though we have to wait until November! Here, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) hugs her sister Prim, presumably before she heads back into the next tournament. I love the marketing plan though- constantly drip feeding us pics is making me so intrigued. 

 

Zac Efron

How hot does Zac look here?! He looks yummy on the set of Townies, which he will star in with Seth Rogen.

Who knew these guys were friends?! They hung out together after Ri’s show in LA earlier this week. 

 

Ashley Tisdale

How hot does Ashley look here?! This is so sexy- she has definitely shaken off her Disney image. Phwoaaar!

 

Amanda Bynes

What is the small, hand-rolled cigarette in her hand?! She couldn’t surely be smoking pot in public?! Also, take a close look at her hair- you can see where her extensions have been put in. 

 

Avril Lavigne

Avril is joined by boyfriend Chad Kroeger on the set of her music video, Here’s To Never Growing Up. I feel like I’ve seen that look before!

Big Pics: Girls Aloud, Taylor Swift & Shakira

Girls Aloud

The girls played the first night on their “Ten” reunion tour. The biggest shocker of the night was Cheryl’s hideous new back tattoo. It is huuuge and looks very cheap. I’m not a big fan of coloured tattoos- especially ones that big!

Taylor Swift

Taylor is still in the UK after performing at the Brits on Wednesday. Last night, we was spotted with Critics’ Choice winner Tom Odell. They were in a pub in Bethnal Green, London. I doubt it’s anything romantic but I can’t get over how easily that girl makes friends- she probably only met him on Wednesday and now they’re meeting up! On another note, Taylor looks amazing in this shoot for InStyle magazine.

Wiz Khalifa

Wiz and girlfriend, Amber Rose, have already uploaded a picture of their newborn, Sebastian, and he was only born today! Loving Wiz’s hoodie as well.

Shakira

Shakira was seen out in public for the first time since the birth of son Milan. Her fiancé, Gerard Piqué, was holding their bundle of joy, who was wearing a cute coat with ears!

Josh Brolin 

Actor Josh Brolin is getting a divorce from his wife of eight years, Diane Lane. It was first reported in US Weekly and the couple’s rep confirmed the sad news. Brolin, who was most recently in Gangster Squad married actress Diane (who was nominated for an Oscar for 2002’s Unfaithful) in 2004. This was their second marriage and they do not have any children together.

Wiz Khalifa

Rapper Wiz has finally become a father to a baby boy today after his girlfriend, Amber Rose, finally gave birth- it feels like she has been pregnant forever. The boy is called Sebastian and already has a nickname! Wiz revealed all on Twitter: “Happy Birthday Sebastian “The Bash” Taylor Thomaz!!! Everyone welcome this perfect young man into the world.”

Wiz, real name Cameron Thomaz, also updated his feed on his boy’s progress: “Thanx for all the love guys. Bash took his first poop, had a good meal now he’s peacin.” LOVE IT.

Justin Timberlake

Justin has announced that he will be appearing on the Jimmy Fallon show every day for a whole week, which is the first that has ever happened with an artist. This will happen on the week starting the 11th March. The weekend before, Justin will be hosting Saturday Night Live. This guy has been so busy since new year!

gaga

Lady Gaga

Gaga has gone into surgery today to sort out her hip. The singer had to cancel the 20 remaining dates of her Born This Way Ball tour after suffering from inflamed joints. She was in so much pain that she couldn’t walk and had to use a wheelchair, which she called Emma.

Before she went in, she wrote a sentimental blog post to her fans, thanking them for their support: “Monsters, You really gave me a lot of strength today. As they wheeled me into surgery today, I thought about all of your pain and perseverance,  your unique family situations, school environments, health issues, homelessness, identity struggles — sometimes you are so brave that it terrifies me. I wonder how it’s even possible.”

She continued: “So I thought to myself, I’m alive, I’m living my dream, and this is just a bump in the road. I’m grateful because this is temporary, and for some it is not. You have changed my life. I love you and am proud to be a part of your lives. If you can do it, I can do it too, and if we stick together we can get through anything. Love, Gaga.”

Damn, that was some speech!

Amber Rose debuts baby bump

Amber Rose announced her pregnancy to the world by showing up to the MTV VMAs with a MASSIVE bump. There is no denying that she is very far gone. Her visual confirmation is similar to Beyoncé’s announcement at the show last year- but then, you couldn’t see her bump as much. There was no way Amber would have been able to cover THAT up!

The news of her pregnancy broke a while back but no official confirmation had come from either camp. Her and Wiz Khalifa are said to be delighted although the pregnancy wasn’t planned.

 

Top News: Adele and One Direction

1. A magazine has claimed today that Adele is secretly already married to fiance Simon Konecki. Life & Style magazine had a shot of Adele walking in London with a gold band on her ring finger. The singer is also expected to give birth within the next couple of months. Watch this space- I’m sure we will find out the truth soon!

UPDATE (30/08/12): Adele has denied the rumours via Twitter, simply writing, “I’m not married…Zzzzzzz”.

2. DJ David Guetta renewed his vows to wife Cathy after twenty years of marriage. His two children, Tim and Angie, were also at the intimate ceremony in Ibiza, where David has been DJing most of the summer. This story surprised me purely because I didn’t realise David was old enough to be married that long but yep! He’s 44! Who knew?! Cathy is a socialite and night club manager.

3. Amber Rose is expecting her first child with fiance and rapper Wiz Khalifa. Although the pregnancy was not planned, according to a source, “they’re really happy to be starting a family together.” Neither person has officially confirmed the news.

4. The One Direction boys have released the name and the artwork for their second album which will be named Take Me Home. Louis tweeted, “So pleased to tell you that our new album is called “take me home” can’t wait for you to hear it! More news soooon!” Their first single, Live While We’re Young, will be released very soon. The album is expected to come out at the start of November.

UPDATE (01/09/2012): Here is another album cover image which has been released. It has also been reported that Live While We’re Young will come on September 24th.
