Back in the days of ‘The Hills‘, LC was more of a fan of brunettes than blondes, but it seems that her taste has begun to change…
Last night Lauren Conrad and Derek Hough were papped leaving Playhouse in Hollywood together, but were careful to leave the venue separately.
They exited through the back door, and waited patiently for their valet to arrive.
She split from boyfriend of 3 years Kyle Howard back in June, and has been single since then. Meanwhile, Derek‘s been single for a while, and may finally be getting over his feelings for Cheryl Cole.
Perhaps it’s a coincidence that she’s just put her $2.25 million house on the market…
Scarlett Johansson has broken her two week silence on the photo scandal surrounding her.
In at interview with CNN, she admitted that she took the photos of herself naked, but did not intend for them to be made public.
“Just because you’re an actor or make films or whatever doesn’t mean you’re not entitled to your own personal privacy. If that is sieged in some way, it feels unjust. It feels wrong.”
The FBI are closing in on a group of phone hackers, who’s other victims include: Miley Cyrus, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, and Chrisitina Aguilera.
An FBI spokeswoman said: “The FBI is investigating a person or group responsible for a series of cyber intrusions of high-profile figures. This would include many devices – could mean a computer, desktop, laptop, iPad, cell phone… intrusions into personal online accounts too.”
Kate Middleton turned up at Kensington‘s new (and very posh, let me tell you!) branch of High Street chain Topshop on Monday evening. Arriving just 20 minutes before closing, and minus her usual entourage, she shopped alongside several other customers, spending a little over £100.
Her purchases included: a blue velvet-trim cropped jacket costing £65, a £38 teal coloured polka dot pencil skirt, both of which have now sold out nationwide, and a pair of gold feathery earrings.
She tried the pieces on, waited in the queue, and even used a rewards card when she got to the till!
The sales assistant that served her said that despite all the chaos she caused, she remained calm: “She was low-key and casual – she seemed so normal. She was really chilled out despite some customers in the queue behind her saying, “Oh my God, it’s her” and pointing – she didn’t seem fazed by it all and she was really sweet. I also saw all her rewards cards as she had to sift through them to find her credit card. Can you believe it? I love you, Kate, for being so normal.”
It’s not the first time she’s chosen the High Street over the designers, having purchased the majority of her honeymoon wardrobe from Warehouse.
When 61-year-old farmer Alan Graham gave Rihanna and her team permission to film part of her new music video on his land, he got a little more than he’d originally bargained for.
He was more than a little taken aback when she stripped off for the shoot, and even warned her that she should “find a greater God“, before asking her to leave.
She decided to film ‘We Found Love‘ in Northern Ireland this week, and she’s due to perform three gigs at Belfast’s Odyssey Arena this weekend.
One fan criticised her current weight on Twitter: “@rihanna looks fat in the ‘We Found Love‘ pics.” Rihanna hastily replied, “I peeped that too *puts down donut.*”
She did have something to celebrating though, as a fan also tweeted her a chart update: “Oohhh SH****T!!!! #WeFoundLove is #2 in WW iTunes, while #Cheers is 8. #NoBodysFaveGoHArdLikeRihanna“
She’s just returned from a gig in Rio with best friend Katy Perry, and spoke fondly of their reconciliation: “Just remembered dancing in a mosh pit w/ @katyperry to “WE FOUND LOVE” lastnight!!! Haaa…well this morning actually.”
Peter Andre has secretly been dating a 26-year-old backing dancer called Kristina Macmillan.
The pair worked together most recently last month in Egypt, and a couple of the dancer’s previous employees are ‘Take That‘ and ‘Grease‘ the musical.
Peter wrote in his new! magazine column last month: “I don’t want to say if it’s on or off as I just don’t know what I want. I could end up going on a date with her next week. Who knows?”
Paris Hilton attended the opening of a brand new handbag-shaped store at Mumbia’s Inorbit Mall yesterday.
Her Twitter read: “I’m at the Inorbit Mall about to walk into my @PHpurse Store. Can’t wait to see you all! Love #India! #YES! Wow! What an amazing turnout at my new @PHpurse Store! Thousands of my fans came to see me. Everyone is so friendly and sweet! Love #India! Love my fans so much! They truly mean the world to me. Feeling so much love in #India!”
Ever the philanthropic, Paris pondered how she could help the country financially too: “What are the most credible non-profit charity organizations here in #India? After seeing what I’ve seen, I want to help make a difference. India is beautiful, but some parts are very poverty stricken. Broke my heart to see babies sleeping on the streets. Thank you all for your suggestions on what the best charities in #India are. It’s so important to give back to those who are less fortunate.”
And this caring behaviour continued later in the day when she gave a $100 note to a begger on the street, who then asked a nearby photographer, “can I get change for this?”
Cheryl Cole‘s love life is on the up following her ‘Pride of Britain Awards‘ sponsored trip to Afghanistan last week. She got friendly with Royal Marine Andy ‘Bagsy’ Baker during her visit to Camp Bastion, and took his number.
She told ‘The Mirror‘: “I think I am going to call him this week and we’ll see what happens. I’m sure he’s not expecting me to ring but that’s why it’ll be funny – and that’s why I’m going to do it.”
The only slight ‘fly in the ointment’ for ‘Bagsy‘ is that she’ll be unable to contact him for the next few days whilst he’s still serving.
His relative Graham Peck said: “When Bagsy read that Cheryl was planning on ringing her mystery soldier, he panicked because he’s not allowed to have his phone on for another nine days – it’s military rules. He wants her to know that he’ll be in touch the moment he lands, and wants her to wait for him. Andy’s a great guy and keeps himself fit in the gym.”
You might think that Matt Cardle looks innocent enough on the outside, but he’s hidden quite a secret from the media over the last couple of years…
When he was just 11 years old, his mother took him to the police after discovering that he had purchased and carried a gun with him to school.
He told ‘The Sun‘: “I was at a posh private school in Essex, then my dad got made redundant and we went to the local school down the road. I went round to a mate’s house and he said he had a gun. Where the hell was some posh kid from Essex going to get a bullet from? It didn’t work and the older lads took it from me and were running round pretending to shoot it. I think he was expecting a cap gun. When I showed him, I’ll never forget his face. I crumbled and told them who gave it to me. He got a telling off, I got a telling off and a couple of weeks’ suspension from school. It could have been worse.”
His first single from upcoming album ‘Letters‘ will be ‘Run For Your Life‘, and will be released on October 9.
Jessie J sampled some traditional French cuisine today at Parisian eatery ‘Cafe Kleber‘.
She tried a cooked snail for the first time, and wrote on Twitter:”I don’t know if I’m into this lol”, before taking her first bite. Just minutes later the posted, “naaahh not for me,” alongside a photo of her wearing a look of pure disgust.
“There are about 25 papz watching me through the window at lunch. Think I may take a pic of them when I leave.”
The singer, who’s career has really taken off this year, is staying at luxurious hotel ‘Mandarin Oriental‘ whilst she’s in the French capital.
Beyoncé debuted her third fragrance, ‘Pulse‘, on the top of New York’s Dream Hotel last night. She wore a tailored sequined blue blazer and black peep-toe Loubs, and told the waiting press that she is having an amazing time shopping for maternity wear.
In her short speech, she said: “I love the idea of a signature scent that lets a woman leave her mark wherever she goes, so I always try to make my scents appropriate for any occasion. I am having so much fun. It has been the most fun time now that it has been announced and I don’t have to, you know, it was really difficult to conceal. But now that I can be proud and excited about it, I’m having so much fun shopping – it’s great.”
It doesn’t seem that motherhood will slow her work schedule down though: “I want to create a boy band. I want to continue to produce and do documentaries and music videos. I eventually want to start directing for other artists. Once I know that I have my stuff together and I trust that, I can do it for other artists. I see so many male artists building these empires and passing their knowledge on to other artists and development. I see myself doing the same thing and hopefully other younger artists when they grow up and they have been around for 15, 20 years, they can do the same thing.”
The only thing that she dislikes about her pregnancy is her heightened sense of smell: “My nose, I smell everything from a mile away. Usually it is food, it is onions or something that I just can’t tolerate,” she told ‘The Associated Press‘.
Among the stars in attendance was Alexandra Burke, who she sang a duet with when she won ‘The X Factor‘, who’s currently in the city working on her second album.
