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?

MTV Video Music Awards: Best & Worst Dressed

no1

You can always count on the MTV Video Music Awards for interesting red carpet fashion. This is where the celebs are their most daring, controversial and damn right sexy/sleazy (however you see it). To be honest, I found it quite hard to pick best dressed because I didn’t like most of what I saw, especially Miley Cyrus‘.

Last night the stars of the music industry hit the red carpet for the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. There were some AMAZING clothes – my favourite dress of the night is Lily Alridge’s (above). It is stunning! There also seemed to be a theme of boob revealing and cut-outs, which are not my thing so most of those headed straight for the no pile.

Britney’s Vegas residency isn’t selling well: Why I’m not surprised

brit2

Reports suggest that Britney Spears’ two-year residency in Las Vegas has not got off to a very good start. Tickets went on sale four days ago and hardly any of them are sold out.

The first block of shows at Planet Hollywood from 27th December until the end of February are available and, if you head to Ticketmaster, none of the performances are sold out although news reports indicate otherwise.

I’m not surprised by this because Britney is not a good live act. She probably won’t sing live and if she does, it will be weak and reliant upon a backing track. I love Britney but I have never paid to see her live because I don’t think she is worth the money. The cheapest tickets are $66 (£41), which isn’t bad but those are for seats right at the very back. The most expensive ticket is $194 (£121) including fees! No singer is worth that kind of money, especially not someone like Brit Brit.

If you compare this to Celine Dion and Shania Twain, who have both had residencies in Vegas, it looks real bad. Both of them sold out their first lot of tickets quickly. I think their situation is different- they have both been singers for a long time and have proven vocal talent live. Nobody wants to pay a ton of money for someone who can’t sing well. I also think Britney just hasn’t been around long enough for her residency to be a massive sell. Singers like Celine and Shania aren’t releasing new music anymore. They’ve had their day and are happy singing their old tunes for beloved fans.

Britney is different in that she is still current (or trying to be) and is releasing music, so you could probably see her perform on your TV (for free) in the near future. Her new tracks are dance-heavy and spoken, so there isn’t much point in seeing that live and her old favourites will end up being her holding the mic out for the audience to sing along.

I wonder if Planet Hollywood will keep her for the entire two year duration. She is only contracted to 50 shows a year, so that’s not much and she is being paid $15 (£9) million per year. I wonder what investors are thinking right now. I just hope she puts on a good show for the loyal fans who have paid for a ticket.

Big Pics: Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus & Great Gatsby cast

Britney Spears

I love this picture! Her sons Jayden and Sean are so cute and they are pulling crazy faces. Brit posted the picture on Twitter to celebrate Mother’s Day, writing: “I’ve got the two cutest boys in the world! Hope y’all are having as nice of a #mothersday as I am!”

Miley Cyrus

miley

Erm, where are your trousers?! There is more material on her feet than her bottom! Miley seems to be happy flaunting it after recent risqué shoots with Maxim and V magazines. I’m not a big fan of the Jack Skellington print either. She seems very happy with her stylist though!

The Hunger Games

hunger

The Hunger Games won’t stop teasing us with promotional material even though we have until November still! Aaaah! The poster does look epic though and Katniss looks so freakin’ badass. The tagline says: “The sun persists in rising, so I make myself stand.” Pretty sweet.

Beyoncé

beyonce

Beyoncé uploaded this handwritten apology on her Facebook page to let fans know how sorry she was for cancelling the Antwerp show yesterday. She must have been very ill if she had to cancel as she has never done so before- yet she’s well enough the following day?! Seems weird.

Rihanna

ri1

Girl is always changing her hair! Ri has now got in long, thick extensions. She’s back to blonde! I guess she’ll be heading back to red next…

Great Gatsby cast

gatsby

The cast of The Great Gatsby came out in force in Cannes, as the adaptation is opening the Film Festival. L-R: Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Leo DiCaprio (obvs!), Elizabeth Debecki, Baz Luhrmann, Isla Fisher, Joel Edgerton and Amitabh Bachchan. Cannot wait to see this movie!!

Big Pics: Jennifer Aniston, Britney & One Direction

Jennifer Aniston

What are those white, circular marks on Jen’s back?! The actress has admitted to using the “cupping” remedy where hot glass cups are put on the back to aid circulation and (supposedly) fertility. The technique leaves red marks on the skin for up to week and obviously, she tried covering it up with foundation and the shade just wasn’t right.

Kelly Osbourne

Corr! That is going to hurt! Kelly showed the effects of sitting out in the sun with no protection. That burn is going to itch like hell! You would think she would be old enough to know to use sunscreen!

One Direction

Check out the One D boys with their waxwork counterparts. They actually look really good! I’m so impressed. They were unveiled today at Madame Tussaud’s in London. They will remain there until July.

Miley Cyrus

Miley looks crazy here! I wondered what the heck was going on with her feet but it turns out she is using a foot massager.

Hayden Panettiere

hayden

I love the selfies Hayden posts because she is always having a laugh. This one is no different. According to the caption she is “eating her feelings”.

Britney Spears

Doesn’t this picture just melt your heart?! It’s so great to see Britney hanging out with her sons Jayden and Sean. The family headed to a LA Dodgers baseball game.

Ryan Gosling: “Britney was a sweetheart”

ryan1

Now, I’m sure you know all about Ryan Gosling as I talk about him incessantly. If not, quick recap- he was part of the Mickey Mouse Club TV show that spawned teen stars like Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.

He had previously talked about how he lived with Justin and Justin’s mum while they were filming and now, he opens up about his friendship with Britney Spears.

Speaking to The Sunday Times Style, Ryan said: “Britney was a sweetheart. She lived right above me, the girl next door. The little girl I used to play basketball and spin the bottle with.”

Ryan and Britney at the bottom. Christina and Justin on the right.

How cute is that?! Could you imagine them playing together?! Awww! I wonder if Ryan was gutted when Britney was more into Justin.

He admits that he doesn’t keep in touch with his former Club pals, saying: “Not really. I mean, sometimes you are at the same event, but it’s a lot like I imagine what it’s like to run into someone from elementary school.”

Despite the Club giving him a cutesy teeny-bopper image at the beginnings of his career, he praises it for the work ethic it instilled.

”It is remarkable. Now you have ‘The X Factor‘ and all that stuff, but back then it wasn’t around. You give these kids an unparalleled work ethic which is why you see the difference between ‘NSYNC and those other bands, and between Britney and Christina and the other girls.”

Oh Ryan, being a Disney kid who played spin the bottle with Britney should be a bad thing, but it doesn’t turn me off at all.

Beyoncé & Jay-Z

Beyoncé and Jay-Z went out to meet the people of Cuba while on holiday. The pair were celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary. I’m sure they wanted some privacy but spent a bit of time heading out, seeing the locals.  I LOVE B’s hair like this!

Jamie Lynn Spears

jamie

Jamie tweeted such an old picture of her on Justin Timberlake’s lap while he is next to his girlfriend, Britney Spears. It just gives a cool insight into how they were back then. She actually tweeted this TO Justin saying: “‘@jtimberlake Weird hearing ur music as an Adult. Ha Not only do I appreciate it. I GET it. #jay #crymeariver #mirror.” What a sweet message.

Rihanna

ri1

Ri headed back to her native Barbados to celebrate her mum Monica’s birthday. She wrote: “Me and Mama Fenty doing some bday damage! She’s radical man! #phuckyobirthday” and in the second pic (below), she wrote: “The way she looks at me is as epic as the way Dolly looked at me! Love u mommy #AriesLife”

Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart

rpatz

OMG! They’re holding hands in public! This never happens. You never see any picture of them being romantic at all so this is so sweet to see and answers the rumours that say they’re aren’t “on” anymore.

Russell Brand

Russell seems a bit crazy here! He is wearing many random things and he is in Y fronts! He wrote: “Model wears “Found in Garage collection”. West Ham jacket, cowboy hat (worn in vegas w Diddy), rootin rootin boots.” What a weirdo!

Hayden Panettiere

hayden1

Hayden is back with her man and she doesn’t care who knows it! She denied she was back with Miami Heat basketball star, Wladimir Klitschko, in January when reports first surfaced but she now seems to be very open about it! The actress and the Ukranian athelete had an on-off relationship until they finally broke up in May 2011. To get back together again!

Fergie & Josh Duhamel 

fergie

Fergie tweeted this picture of her behind the scenes rehearsing at the Kids Choice Awards with her husband Josh. He was presenting the show and did a pre-recorded skit with his wife, who seemed unfazed by his choice of clothing!

David Beckham

David showed off his latest tattoo (and fine abs!) while on his tour of China. The inking saying: “Life and death are determined by fate, rank and riches decreed by Heaven.” Also on the trip, Beckham showed off his football skills. That is, until he skidded and fell on his arse!

Harry Styles

This old photo of Harry in a silver thong has somehow surfaced! The singer was 16 at the time during the X Factor run. Why on earth was he wearing this while ironing?!

Britney Spears

britney2

Britney showed her Twitter followers her new man, David Lucardo, while waiting for a Cirque Du Soleil show to start. Dave is just a normal dude- he is a field researcher for a law firm. It is uncertain how they met. You can see them below holding hands.  All in can think is, DAMN, girl moves on fast.

britneyPIC

Bizarrely, Britney was also spotted with a plain band on her ring finger while in the Las Vegas airport. What could this mean?!
