Paris Hilton has altered her musical direction quite drastically in the last few years, and her new record label certainly reflects that. The party-loving socialite has just inked a deal with ‘Cash Money Records‘, known for its rap and R&B stars, such as the likes of Nicki Minaj and ‘Lil Wayne.
The ‘Young Money‘ account tweeted: “EVERYONE GO FOLLOW
@ParisHilton.SHE OFFICIALLY FAMILY NOW! @BIRDMAN5STAR SLIM @LILTUNECHI DONE IT AGAIN! BILLIONAIRE MIND$ #YMCMB.” Paris and ‘Lil Wayne have been chummy for a while- this year he performed at her birthday party (crystal microphone and all), and last year they released a song together.
Paris revealed to ‘Showbiz 411‘ that fans can expect to hear her next track as early as this summer: “This is a lot different than my first album. It’s really going to be house music.” The blondie also posted on her Twitter account: “Love all you guys so much! So proud I have been Trending Worldwide all day & night because of you all. I have the best fans in the world!” New colleague Birdman tweeted her: “Welcome@ParisHilton to tha Family,” and she responded with: “Thanks BO$$! Happy to be apart of the family.
Back in April ‘CUTV‘ caught up with Loveable Rogues for a chat before their gig alongside Olly Murs in Cardiff… see what they had to say about being Beliebers, celeb pals ‘Little Mix‘ and ‘One Direction‘, getting Rita Ora‘s number, running around naked, and how Té is getting on with driving (I’m pretty sure I may have found a worse driver than myself!)
Taylor Swift looked phenomenal at Sunday night’s ‘Billboard Music Awards 2013‘ in this long-sleeved sequinned Zuhair Murad number- the outfit alone deserved the 8 trophies that she took home! I am obsessed with this daring shade of royal blue at the moment, and can totally see why she chose it with her sandy blonde locks.
Whilst I can’t find a practically identical version on the High Street, I have found several considerably cheaper alternatives, listed below. (I believe the reason for my struggle is the majority of the population deem it socially unacceptable to wear sequins all year-round, and only at Christmas- these people need to lighten up, quite literally!)
Lipsy one shoulder glitter dress, £48
Motel gabby sequin dress, £58
RI-Lashes of London dress, £25
Former ‘Ugly Betty‘ actress America Ferrera graduated from US college ‘USC‘ (‘University of Southern California‘) on Friday, 10 years after beginning her studies; she was awarded the academic achievement for her study of ‘International Relations‘.
She joked on her Twitter page with a fan about going for a Master’s one day, and posted an image of her graduation gown, whilst thanking well-wishers for their interest in her big day: “GRADUATION DAY! Congrats to the worldwide class of 2013! Graduation selfie! Inspiring day at @USC! Thank you Jimmy Iovene for that ‘igniting’ speech! & @USCDornsife for all your support! Fight On! Thank you for all the love on Grad day! I feel overwhelmingly lucky 4 my education! If only every child had access to a great education!
#imagine. Another day, another coast, another Graduation! Now I get to watch my best friend @tamara__hamdan, get her ‘MBA‘ from Columbia! So proud!”
David Beckham announced to the world on Thursday that he’d finally be hanging up those ‘golden boots’ (or should I say balls?!), and will be retiring from playing professional football. The football tycoon has played for some of the world’s greatest teams, including Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan and Los Angeles Galaxy, and his current club is Paris Saint-Germain.
It is the perfect time for him to retire from the sport considering that his team are currently celebrating a win. He made the admission during an interview with former teammate Gary Neville on ‘Sky Sports News‘: “Over the years when I’ve seen players retire, when you ask them they said ‘you’ll know when you’re ready’… I think I know when I’m ready. It’s difficult because I still think I can play at the top level … but I’ve always said to myself I want to go out on top.”
Supportive wife Victoria tweeted an old photo of them of the Maldives earlier today, and added: “Thank you for all your lovely messages, we are so proud of you David.” David‘s last game will be on Sunday 26th May.
Just 3 years ago, Paris Hilton was very nearly murdered in her sleep. The philanthropist and globally famous celebrity was sleeping in her LA mansion with boyfriend at the time, Cy Waits, when she awoke to find a man by a downstairs window, (stalker Nathan Lee Parada), wielding several knives. For the first time since then, she has rehashed her ordeal with ‘The Sun‘, and has lifted the lid on why this incident has led to some drastic life changes.
She recalled the dramatic event in the interview: “It was terrifying. I had never experienced anything like that before and it really shook the foundations of my world. It was about 5am when I heard someone banging on my window. I went downstairs and saw a crazy guy outside with two huge kitchen knives in his hands. He looked like he wanted to kill me and he kept banging on the windows, demanding to be let in. I screamed. I was certain he was going to get through the windows or the door and then that would be it. I was certain he would kill me if he could get inside.”
“Luckily, my boyfriend heard the noise and came tearing down the stairs. He got his gun, went outside and put it to the man’s head. Cy forced him to the ground and held him there until the police arrived. If he had not acted so swiftly, I don’t think anyone would have got there in time to save me. Seeing someone with such hate in this eyes- someone who wants to kill you- makes you question things, and it made me wonder about the price of fame. There was so much chaos in my life at the time. After the attack I decided it was time to withdraw from the public eye before anything worse happened.”
“I’ve always been driven to accomplish something with my life for myself and not just take handouts from my family. It would have been easy to sit back and live off my family, but I wanted to be independent and make my family proud. Now I’m moving into the hotel business and it feels the natural next step. I’ve always been inspired by my grandfather and how he grew this huge empire from nothing. It’s something I look up to. People have never got to know the real Paris Hilton. They remember me for falling out of nightclubs and messing around on a reality show. But that was just a character I was playing. You should see me in a business meeting. I have changed a great deal in the past few years. I’m not some ditzy blonde who can get pushed around. I’m a tough businesswoman.”
Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie has written an article for the ‘New York Times‘, which has been published today, confirming that she has undergone a double mastectomy operation. In the article titled ‘My Medical Choice‘, she explains that she made the decision after hearing some scary statistics about the chances of her developing breast or ovarian cancer:
“My doctors estimated that I had an 87% risk of breast cancer and a 50% risk of ovarian cancer, although the risk is different in the case of each woman. Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy. For any woman reading this, I hope it helps you to know you have options. I want to encourage every woman, especially if you have a family history of breast or ovarian cancer, to seek out the information and medical experts who can help you through this aspect of your life, and to make your own informed choices.”
“I can tell my children that they don’t need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer. During that time I have been able to keep this private and to carry on with my work. But I am writing about it now because I hope that other women can benefit from my experience. Cancer is still a word that strikes fear into people’s hearts, producing a deep sense of powerlessness. But today it is possible to find out through a blood test whether you are highly susceptible to breast and ovarian cancer, and then take action.”
