Glass: Film Review

I am a huge fan of James McAvoy and thought he was brilliant in Split so, even though I didn’t care much for Unbreakable, I was looking forward to Glass, the conclusion of M. Night Shyamalan‘s trilogy. However, I came away feeling pretty meh about the whole thing.

rising

Today the shortlist for the public-voted EE Rising Star BAFTA Award was unveiled and the five nominees were (L-R) Anya Taylor-Joy, Lucas Hedges, Ruth Negga, Tom Holland and Laia Costa. Like last year I’m not certain who to vote for, and I explain why below.

Harry Styles and Caroline Flack split

Despite never publicly admitting they were an item, Harry Styles decided to take to Twitter to confirm that his relationship with Caroline Flack is over.

Rumours that they were dating started around November so the relationship has only lasted a couple of months. This doesn’t surprise me really after the controversy surrounding their fifteen year age gap. The Xtra Factor presenter Flack, 32, received a lot of criticism for dating the 17-year-old singer.

Harry said on Twitter: “Please know I didn’t “dump” Caroline. This was a mutual decision. She is one of the kindest, sweetest people I know.”

Maybe the public pressure got to them or it just didn’t work out because of the age difference. Who knows. All I can say is thank godness it is over- I found that a really weird relationship. I’m sure One Direction fans will be rejoicing.

Ashley Tisdale splits with boyfriend

High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale has split with her boyfriend Scott Speer.

Tisdale has been with Speer for two-and-a-half years and apparently the relationship had run its course.

Speer is a director and he worked with Tisdale on some of her music videos. He has just finished directing Step Up 4ever.

Celeb blogger Perez Hilton tweeted Ashley “sending you a big hug #lotsoflove” and while Ashley thanked him for the tweet, she hasn’t mentioned the split at all on Twitter which I’m proud of her for. No need to talk about it publicly especially when there was no drama involved (that we know of!).

Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton split

It would appear that singer Nicole Scherzinger and F1 driver Lewis Hamilton have split up after four years together.

Apparently, Lewis called time on their relationship because they were hardly spending any time together due to work schedules. Lewis currently lives in Switzerland whereas Nicole is in LA for US X Factor so the amount of time spent apart was increasing. Also, Nicole has taken a lot more on career-wise: she is promoting singles and her album Killer Love, she filmed a part for Men In Black III and she is a judge on X Factor. When she does have some free time, it is still hard to meet with Lewis because he is touring the world with F1 team McLaren.

Sources say it was an amicable split and it is solely down to conflicting work schedules. Another source says Nicole is devastated.

While many reports have surfaced about this today, there has been no official statement and all the stories have relied upon “sources” so I am holding out hope that this may not be the case. I thought they made a great couple. I shall update this story if a statement is released.

Robbie has left Take That again

Gary Barlow has confirmed that Robbie Williams has once again left Take That to pursue his solo career.

During the Radio Times interview Gary said; ‘It was beautiful. We got on well. We finished the tour. We’re all happy. The fans have come along and been happy. Now Rob’s doing a solo record, and from this point it’s back to where it was.’

He added that they ended amicably and Robbie was always welcome to come back once he had done his solo project.

In 2010, the band announced Robbie would reunite with them for their Progress tour the following year, the first time they have been a five-piece in sixteen years. Now the tour is over, things are back to the way they were. But it is obvious that Gary and Robbie remain good friends- just look at how they were together on the X Factor last weekend.

However, a spokesperson said that the band are “on a break” rather than splitting up.

He said in a statement: ‘I can confirm that the band are not splitting and there is no pending announcement of a split.

‘The band are on a break, Gary is doing X Factor and Robbie is working on his new solo album.’

I am glad about this. Since this year’s X Factor, I have really grown to like Gary and I’m glad him and Robbie still get on and there is a possibility that they might work together again. I don’t think this means the end for them as a five-piece.

Nadine and fiancé split

Another sad split story. Nadine Coyle from Girls Aloud and her fiance Jason Bell have split after being engaged since September.

The pair had been dating since 2008 when Nadine moved to LA.

Nadine tweeted last night, saying; “A few weeks ago Jason and i broke up. We are great friends and decided we are better this way. Im in NYC working & I love all your support.x”

With this and Cheryl’s career blow, maybe the Girls will be reuniting soon!

Fearne Cotton splits from fiancé

Fearne Cotton has split with her fiancé Jesse Jenkins after eight months of engagement.

Her spokesperson spoke to the MailOnline:  ‘Sadly their relationship came to a mutual end last month. There is no one else involved.’

The couple were always a bit on and off since they began dating in 2008 but I thought that was behind them after the engagement. Skater Jesse proposed to Fearne on her 29th birthday. I feel sorry for Fearne and I wish her all the best.

 

 

JT and Jessica Biel split

It has finally been confirmed that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have split after three years together. The pair have been dogged with split rumours for a LONG time.

How long they have been split for is anyone’s guess but this is their official statement: “Addressing the media speculation regarding Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake’s relationship, we are confirming that they mutually have decided to part ways. The two remain friends and continue to hold the highest level of love and respect for each other.”

This has been a long time coming, to be honest. I can’t say I am surprised by this news. I’m sure Justin will move on quickly, he is just so damn hot.

There is even speculation that his “Friends with Benefits” co-star Mila Kunis had something to do with the split- a rumour which both parties deny.
