At their fake Vegas wedding back in 2009
When she was in her early 20s, Paris Hilton was more than a little red-faced when her then-boyfriend Rick Solomon released a sex tape the couple had made together. The mass media, and the public, used this as ammunition in a hateful campaign against Paris, who was forced to defend herself, and claimed that she never wanted it to made public.
In a snippet form her upcoming interview with CNN chat show host Piers Morgan, Paris commented on this embarrassing scandal: “I’ll have to live with that for the rest of my life, and explain it to my children.”
Paris and her mother Kathy did a very emotional interview with Piers, with Kathy seen crying at the obviously painful memories of this time. But Paris, being the total professional that she is, still managed to mention her ‘Oxygen’ show, “The World According To Paris”!
“When I was little I looked up to people like Princess Diana, these women, and I feel like he took that away from me. I’ll have to live with that for the rest of my life, and explain it to my children. I’ll never be able to erase it..”
‘Beautiful Girls’ singer Sean Kingston, (and a female companion), were admitted to a hospital yesterday night following a crash; the Jet Ski they were riding crashed into a bridge in Miami.
The pair were then thrown from the ski: “A good Samaritan tended to the two of them until Miami Beach Fire Rescue arrived and saw there were injuries”. They were treated at the Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
Alcohol doesn’t appear to be the cause of the crash, but it is unsure whether Sean was wearing a life jacket.
Up until early this morning, he was believed to be in a critical condition, and celebs such as Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj showed their concern for him with messages on Twitter.
The statement from his publicist said: “Sean Kingston is now stabilized and has moved from the trauma unit to ICU. Sean’s family thanks everyone for their prayers and support during this time.”
After months of deliberation, the ITV Press Centre have finally released the names of the 4 judges for the 2011 ‘X Factor’ show. Last week it became clear that Cheryl Cole was no longer interested in the role, and Dannii Minogue has previously arranged work commitments.
The news was posted on their official Twitter page: “Official: @TheXFactor (UK) judges will be: Gary Barlow, Tulisa Contostavlos, Kelly Rowland & Louis Walsh #itvpresscentre.”
Simon Cowell said: ‘These four are totally up for it, each of them bring a different attitude. They have had a ton of hits between them and they are all committed to finding a star. I have a feeling Louis and Tulisa will have slightly different points of view as to what the next star should look and sound like!’
TheDirector of Television at ITV added: “As multi-million selling artists, songwriters and pop masterminds, Gary, Tulisa, Kelly and Louis have huge breadth of appeal with our audience and the ability to engage both the UK’s next generation of music talent as well as ITV’s viewers.”
What do you think about their choices? Will Tulisa and Kelly clash?
After having spent some time apart due to their hectic work schedules, cute couple Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were able to spend some quality time together on holiday in Hawaii last week.
But poor Selena has received death threats on Twitter, as a result of her being pictured kissing and cuddling Justin.
Angry teenage users have posted comments like: “Stay away from Justin paedophile”, “I hate Selena Gomez cuz she is dating my man”, “If Selena Gomez breaks Justin Bieber’s heart, I will break her face I will kill her without kindness”, “She is just dating Justin for fame”.
Give the girl a break, at least he’s happy!
Katie Price and her latest beau Leo seem to be getting very serious; as he threw her into the pool whilst on holiday in Marbella, Katie showed off a brand spanking new tattoo on her ankle, which reads ‘Leo 27-02-11’, and represents the day that they met at Elton John’s Oscar Party.
The paired messed around in the pool (along with the ‘Only Way Is Essex’ cast) at the Ocean Club.
Is it perhaps too soon for her to get his name tattooed on?
She certainly didn’t get the nickname ‘Wino’ from a love for Winegums….she’s always struggled where drink and drugs are concerned.
Amy Winehouse has checked back into rehab again, and not just any one at that; the exclusive ‘Priory’ rehabilitation centre.
However, she decided to have one last drink en route, and stopped off at a local corner shop to buy (and then down) a small bottle of Smirnoff vodka.
Her admittance to rehab worries fans, as she is due to start a leg of concert dates in Europe on June 18th, and many fear for her health.
Her long-suffering publicist Tracey Miller said: “Amy has embarked on a treatment program at the Priory Clinic. She wants to be ready for performances in Europe this summer and decided to seek an assessment. She will remain at the Priory on doctor’s advice.”
Get well soon Amy!
It seems that my favourite ‘TOWIE’ cast member, ‘Joey Essex’, isn’t having a very reem time in Marbs so far.
In the early hours of the morning, £10,000 worth of belongings were stolen from his villa. These items included literally everything apart from the clothes he was wearing, (his beloved UGG boots – designer clothes, laptop and cash).
As a result, ‘TOWIE’ ITV2 bosses back in England were forced to fly out to Marbs and provide him with replacements. The robbery happened shortly before Joey arrived home after a night out clubbing in the Spanish city.
We’ve all heard about Gaga’s connection with her fans, but I never realised before just how much she adores performing onstage as a character.
She has opened up about her stage ‘persona’ in a detailed interview with ‘Rolling Stone’ magazine, and claims that she only feels ‘alive’ when she’s singing onstage.
“When I am not onstage I feel dead. Whether that is healthy or not to you, or healthy or not to anyone, or a doctor, is really of no concern to me. I don’t feel alive unless I’m performing, and that’s just the way I was born.”
She also revealed that she couldn’t bear to have her connection with her fans severed: “We have this umbilical cord that I don’t want to cut, ever. I don’t feel that they suck me dry.”
“It would be so mean, wouldn’t it, to say, “For the next month, I’m going to cut myself off from my fans so I can be a person. What does that mean? They are part of my person, they are so much of my person. They’re at least 50 percent, if not more.”
It seems that she did struggle to understand her sudden fame back in 2008 though: “Being myself in public was very difficult. I was being poked and probed and people would actually touch me and touch my clothes and be like, “What the f**k is that,” just so awful. It was like I was being bullied by music lovers, because they couldn’t possibly believe that I was genuine.”
I think you would struggle to find an artist that cares more about her fans!
It was meant to be a turning point in her career, but it seems that the only direction she’ll be turning is towards the LAX departures desk for a flight home.
After just 3 weeks as a judge on the first series of ‘X Factor’ USA, the singer has reportedly already been axed as one of the four main judges on the panel, with rival Nicole Scherzinger due to replace her at the next audition.
The reason TV bosses are providing for her quick departure from the show is that her strong accent, (which she had taken elocution lessons to weaken), prevented American viewers from understanding her, with one Twitter user saying “why don’t they just use an auto-cue machine?”
If Nicole gains a role as a judge, who will they ask to host the show alongside former T4 presenter Steve Jones?
In any case, Cheryl is sure to see quite a dent in her bank account, as the US contract was worth over £1.2m.
Should Cheryl be asked to return to X Factor UK? I think Sharon Osbourne should make a comeback!
Big news: Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are engaged!
The basketball player got down on one knee in her bedroom last Wednesday (18th May), after 6 months of dating reality TV star Kim.
The 30-year-old shared her news in an exclusive for ‘People’ magazine: “I didn’t expect this at all. I was in such shock. I never thought it would happen at home, and I never thought now.”
Kris surprised her with a whopping 20.5 carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond sparkler, which he selected with the help of her mum Kris. Kris clearly knew what he needed to buy: “I just knew I wanted it to be big.”
He romantically spelled out ‘will you marry me’ in red rose petals on her bed for when she came back from lunch with friends, and the couple celebrated with the entire Kardashian-Jenner brood over dinner.
“Kris really didn’t want a big celebration, but he had jokingly told my mom he’d be fine if there were mini-horses there. Later that night at the party, my mom brought out two mini-horses, covered in glitter, for us! It was hysterical!’
And her younger sister Khloe tweeted: “I can’t believe I was able to keep this a secret but now I can scream all I want about it! Kim is engaged!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!!!”
That will be a huge wedding for sure! And she’s due in London any day now…
