Isn’t It Romantic: Film Review

I was in love with the idea of Isn’t It Romantic from the beginning and that only continued to swell from the trailers. It looked so up my street! And thankfully, it delivers on its exciting premise and I was not disappointed.

Independence Day: Resurgence – Film Review

ind2

I was never a huge fan of the 1996 movie Independence Day, so I didn’t get why this was necessary. Turns out, Independence Day: Resurgence was massively unnecessary – it is pretty much a rehash of the original and doesn’t add anything particularly refreshing or exciting. A wasted opportunity tbh.

Top Films for June

How are we in June already?! I feel like I have only just written about May and here we are once again. I’m particularly unimpressed and uninspired with this month’s lot to be honest. Normally I have a huge list and cut it down to a few, but this month I haven’t even had to do that.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 Film Review

mock1

The franchise is finally over. You would think my expectations would be high because I loved the books and the first two films, but I had such a ‘meh’ response about this because I felt like I had been waiting for it for TOO long. I was over it, and I think that wasn’t helped by a disappointing and unnecessary Part 1. BUT the good news is, this attitude paid off because it was surprisingly bloody brilliant and a worthy ending to the franchise.

The Hunger Games: Mockingay – Part I Film Review

SS_D8-3371.dng

I desperately wanted to like this and I have been hyping it up for months so my expectations were pretty high. However, I had my reservations when they announced Mockingjay would be split into two films because I didn’t there was enough action to sustain two and I was right. In the first half of the book, it was build-up to the rebellion and setting the scene and that is essentially what happens here – making it the dullest instalment of the franchise so far.

Why I feel sorry for Liam Hemsworth

liam

I feel sorry for Liam Hemsworth, I really do. When he met Miley Cyrus on the set of The Last Song back in 2010, I doubt he knew he was going to be in for such a media frenzy.

He isn’t the type. He doesn’t like all this media attention whereas Miley covets is and craves it. With her, it is just controversy after controversy to the extent where the media report on everything Miley does which means Liam cannot escape the circus that surrounds her.

They got engaged a year ago but even then, they were dodging questions about wedding details. It seemed rocky from that point onwards and it always had the interest of the media. We were always keeping an eye on Miley’s ring finger to see if she was wearing her engagement ring. Liam clearly wanted no part of this, all he cared about was his movies and he didn’t talk about his private life. He kept a very low profile whereas Miley is very public all the time- especially now she is promoting new music.

Personally, I think their relationship has been suffering ever since Miley began working on her upcoming album, BANGERZ. She admitted in interviews that she was solely focussed on that and nothing else had her attention. Now that she is releasing music and promoting it, she seems only concerned about her fans and how her music is doing. She is a singer, so that is understandable but I think her relationship with Liam came down very low on her list of priorities.

She is travelling a lot at the moment for promotion and he is on location wherever for weeks at a time, so the distance would certainly be an issue. I would also imagine that he doesn’t agree with her new shocking tactics, from her sexual new image to her controversial performances (VMAs anyone?) I reckon he would be embarrassed but I have a feeling he can’t stop her. She does want she wants. In my eyes, Liam wants an easy life away from the public eye and being with Miley makes that impossible.

So I wasn’t surprised when they finally announced they had split. Liam didn’t handle it very well though. Seeing the pictures of him kissing Mexican TV star, Eiza Gonzalaz, in Vegas makes me mad. If he had kept a low profile following the announcement, he might have been able to lose the media’s interest. If he is in a relationship with Eiza, he should have kept it quiet because he won’t get any peace now. Now he seems like the bad guy, whereas before people were probably sympathetic.

Everyone seemed shocked because he is kissing someone so close after his split, but let’s be honest here. They probably split AGES AGO. The last time we saw them publicly was in August and even then, they didn’t seem great. They may have just been keeping up appearances here but my guess is that they have been apart for around a month before the official confirmation. He has still moved on quickly but I honestly don’t blame him. He probably feels free and wants to celebrate.

Cheryl looked stunning as she arrived in Cannes. She was there as part of her role as L’Oreal ambassador, as was Eva- who looked amazing too!

Mean Girls

Cheeky! You may recognise this guy as Jonathon Bennett, who played Aaron Samuels in Mean Girls. He is telling Lindsay to go to jail. OH, BURRRRRN!

Miley Cyrus

Miley seemed to have a crazy late-night session of trying on wigs! She seemed to be loving her activity, tweeting: “2 am Wig FUN” and “Why am I up at 3 wearing my @NICKIMINAJ wig loving life”. More to the point, why does she own a Nicki Minaj wig in the first place?! She looks crazy!

Snoop Dogg claims Miley Cyrus isn’t in a relationship

miley2

Miley Cyrus has been denying the rumours that her engagement to Liam Hemsworth is in trouble for months. So Snoop Dogg’s comments on a chatshow are definitely got going to help matters.

Snoop Dogg (I know he wants to be called Lion but oh well) revealed she doesn’t have a relationship when speaking to the Huffington Post Live.

He said: “I can’t speak for her, ya know what I’m saying? But I know that she has a relationship that no longer exists.”

miley3

Erm, what?! He’s saying she isn’t with Liam, right?! It is a tad confusing because he says she “has” a relationship, but at the same time, it doesn’t exist, which doesn’t quite make sense.

He continued: “I know she’s probably in a transformation change with her life, her music [and] her career. She’s 20 years old, and she’s an awesome artist to work with. She knows what she wants in life.”

Snoop and Miley got to know each other while working on their single, Ashtrays and Heartbreaks. It is an odd match but it is a pretty catchy tune. I just wonder how close they are and if he genuinely knows what is going on in her personal life.

I’m sure that Miley will be having a go at him for this regardless. He has made matters worse. They were already bad enough after her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, referred to the couple as being “great friends”, which isn’t the best description ever.

This may not be confirmation for sure but the evidence to say they aren’t together is stacking up. Weirdly though, Miley was spotted out wearing her engagement ring just yesterday (plus some stripper heels). So what do we make of the comments?

Miley Cyrus & her sexy Cosmo shoot

Look at Miley Cyrus squeezing her boobs together in that revealing ensemble! This is just one of the pictures that proves the 20-year-old has grown up. She is hoping to prove that with her upcoming album.

She admits she has nerves: “It’s almost like being a new artist and trying to make a first impression. I think the best thing I could have done was take those two years off to really live, because now people don’t think of me as who I was on the TV show.”

miley5

It’s true, Miley has well and truly shaken her Hannah Montana alter-ego but that also means there is more riding on this album- she explains, “there’s so much hype behind my new record, but it could come out and, worst-case scenario, everyone f***ing hates it.”

Miley also talks about other strong female singers in the industry and if she thinks there is space for everybody.

“Katy Perry’s been my friend for f***ing five years, and I’m not ever gonna let our work get between that relationship. If Katy sticks with being Katy, and Ke$ha is Ke$ha, and Rihanna is Rihanna, and I’m me, there’s room for everybody. The problem is when people look at Gaga and say, “Oh, that works; I’m going to be like that.”’

Despite all her hard work on her album recently, her relationship with fiance Liam Hemsworth is still her top priority.

“Number one is my relationship with Liam. I’ll literally look at him and be like “You are hot, dear god!” The other day, I turned on the pool heater and it was steaming, and he walked outside and took off his clothes and jumped in the pool.”

She continued to make us feel jealous by saying; “I was like, “I’m gonna faint – the hottest guy of my life is in a steaming pool. This looks like a Playgirl shoot.” So I took a photo and made it the background on my phone. My best friend grabbed my phone and was like, “Who’s that? He is so hot!” That’s my hubby!’

miley2

Calling him “hubby” doesn’t help matters when it comes to the rumour mill but it is thought that they are still just engaged. Miley met Hemsworth on the set of The Last Song in 2009. They have had an on-off relationship before they got engaged in June last year.

I’m really looking forward to hearing Miley’s new sound. She hasn’t done anything professionally for ages so it will be good for the focus to be back on her career rather than her personal life.
