Miley’s Full Of Teen Spirit

Standard

18-year-old pop sensation Miley Cyrus proved just how much she’s grown up since her Hannah Montana days last night, wearing a racy black & red leather jacket with matching hotpants, which showed off her killer figure, and enforced her feisty stage presence.

Last night saw the start of her ‘Gypsy Heart’ tour in Equador, where she performed songs form her latest album, ‘Can’t Be Tamed’.

Despite her only touring South America, The Philippines and Australia at the moment, her British fans are hoping to catch a glimpse of their idol over here in the next few months, for a European leg of the tour.

Fans claim that a highlight of the night was her cover of Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’; how very fitting! She actually did a really good cover of the song, and is sure to make many fans happy if she does agree to tour here again.

Rihanna Gives The Paps Something To Ogle At

Standard

Rihanna stepped out in a chest-baring floor-length gown at the 5th DKMS Linked Against Leukemia gala in New York last night, and caused quite a sensation! The singer is currently based in NYC due to various work commitments, and has been doing the rounds at various celeb events along the West Coast.

Accidentally giving the paps the money shot

Unfortunately for her, she didn’t anticipate just how close she would get to ‘popping out’ of her dress in front of the world’s press; as she leaned over to greet some famous friends, such as David Bowie, she caused herself a bit of embarrassment by exposing just a little bit too much flesh below the neck!

A quick recovery!

Smelling Purrfect: Celebs Launching Fragrances!

Standard

Celebrities are constantly expanding their empires with various products, with perfume being a definite favourite on the whole; anybody who’s anybody in the industry has their own fragrance, and Rihanna and Katy Perry are no exceptions.

Hence why kooky singer Katy Perry launched her first perfume during her tour of Melbourne, Australia, yesterday, wearing a lilac and black sequinned dress, (and the classic black Louboutin of course!), as she posed with the gorgeous cat-shaped bottle.

Before heading inside the perfume launch, she took time to pose with a few fans outside.

At the same time, but in a completely different time-zone, BFF Rihanna did some PR of her own; she also launched her first fragrance, ‘Reb’l Fleur’, at the world’s biggest department store, aka Macy’s in New York.

Chace Escapes Prison Sentence

Standard

With co-star Leighton Meester filming 'Gossip Girl'

‘Gossip Girl’ actor Chace Crawford has struck a plea deal in his marijuana possession case; if he stays out of trouble for the next year, his record will be wiped clean.

Following his arrest last June, police found an unlit joint in the car he was in. It was thought that he was heading towards a six month stint in jail, but it seems that this may not be the case.

However, ‘TMZ’ claims that Chace struck a deal with prosecutors this week, and if he stays out of trouble, the case will be immediately dismissed. That doesn’t stop him from having to perform 24 hours of community service though.

It is rumoured that he “had around two ounces of marijuana in a plastic baggy sitting in clear view on the dashboard, and was very polite and low key in a pair of jeans and flip flops and never identified himself when he was arrested.”

It’s a lucky escape for Chace then!

Chace manages to make a mug shot look hot!

Leighton Lights Up The Empire State

Standard

‘Gossip Girl’ starlet Leighton Meester was given the honour of lighting up the Empire State Building in red and white light last night at the 5th Annual ‘DKMS’ Gala in New York. She was joined by designer Vera Wang to help her pull the lever, illuminating the 102 storey building.

She wore a silky high waisted oriental- style skirt by the famous designer, and paired it with gold coloured Brian Atwood pumps.

‘DKMS’ is the world’s largest bone marrow donation centre, so, naturally, guests were given the opportunity to join the bone marrow donation register at the event.

Katy Perry: The Downside Of Touring

Standard

She promised her fans a glimpse into her hectic life on tour, and that she has. Superstar Katy Perry posted a new video titled ‘Katy Perry Concert Candy’ on her website today, where she reveals some of the least favourite aspects of touring.

“The road starts to, like envelop your body and makes you look kind of like a soldier of sorts. I just crossed the Atlantic in like, three days.”

“There are times when we have one minute thirty seconds to change into the next costumes and there is a bar in my quick change that I just hold on to. They are ripping s*** off me and I’m like screaming and swearing getting my side caught in my zipper.”

She was joined at many of her tour dates by her doting husband, Russell Brand, and was quoted as saying: “I was dying to get to England.”

And we loved having you Katy!

Nicole Looks ABSolutely Great!

Standard

Nicole Richie quashed rumours of a third pregnancy on holiday in Miami yesterday, showing off a washboard stomach in a stripy two-piece.

The fashion designer has hired celebrity fitness trainer Tracy Anderson to whip her into shape- and after seeing these pictures, she should give her a raise!

Earlier in the month, she fiercely denied these rumours, telling Gossip Cop: “Contrary to recent speculation I am not pregnant. This irresponsible reporting continues to feed an atmosphere of self-doubt and insecurity. To publicly point out a change in anyone’s body is mean-spirited and cruel. People’s bodies change and change again.”

Gaga Debuts ‘Judas’ On Ellen

Standard

Copying Madonna & Britney?

Gaga performed her latest single ‘Judas’ on the ‘Ellen’ show in America yesterday, and in the interview before her performance, revealed to Ellen that she is a Godmother to Elton John and David Furnish’s baby Zachary.

And speaking about the relationship the two share, Ellen told Gaga: “You are so sweet and beautiful. I love you, you are fantastic”, and the pair gushed about their 3-year-long friendship.

When Ellen brought up the topic of her new HBO documentary about life on the road, and in particular her stint at MSG, Gaga said: “That was a huge benchmark moment in my life. I’m 25 years old. I was asked to play Madison Square Garden. Sold out five nights and quite frankly it’s very overwhelming.”

The highly controversial single seemed to please the audience, wearing a bright blue coloured PVC outfit of trousers and a crop top. Also, Gaga promised Ellen that the next time she appears on the show, she’ll be wearing jeans!

Kate Looks Every Inch The (Mc)Queen

Standard

Hoorah! Married at last!

It was never going to be easy for her to find the perfect dress, one which would be conservative enough for the royals, but also true to her personality, but Kate Middleton’s Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen dress has hit the nail on the head, according to various fashion experts.

She was heavily involved in the designing stage of her ivory & satin Alexander McQueen dress, and her and Burton had to make sure it kept in with McQueen’s eye for detail.

Some say that her dress sense has become a bit demure of late, but her dress was slightly more understated than what I imagined. It featured a lace appliqué bodice, (with 9ft train, held by her sister Pippa!), and Kate took inspiration from Grace Kelly’s wedding dress, with long sleeves.

She accessorised her veil with a diamond tiara by Cartier, lent to her by the Queen for the occasion, and a gorgeous pair of earrings, a gift to her from her parents.

Her wedding shoes matched the dress of course, and were hand-made out of ivory satin, and were embroidered with lace.

Many a fashion designer has offered their praise for Burton’s creation, with Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld saying: “Alexander McQueen’s dresses are always very elegant. It’s very pretty, and relatively classic, but that goes with the decor, with a little touch of the 1950s that recalls Marilyn Monroe or Queen Elizabeth’s dress. The lace is pretty, especially the embroidered veil and the tiara not too high, without too heavy a bun. It’s ravishing and the length of the train is perfect. It’s all elegant and chic — you don’t need to be born a royal princess to be like that.”

Congratulations Wills & Kate! 🙂

Looking stunning, wearing many jewels!
