Kelly’s Canadian ‘Material Girl’ Launch

Standard

Kelly Osbourne has spent the last few days in Canada promoting the latest ‘Material Girl‘ collection at a new store.

“OhMG! @MissKellyO and our MG winner @britdee88 are on a CrAzY Material Girl shopping spree at @TheHudsonsBayCo!,” tweeted ‘Material Girl‘ HQ alongside a picture of the two.

“Getting ready for my @MaterialGirlCol launch @TheHudsonsBayCo I’m sooooooooo nervous! I cant wait to see you all!”. Thank you so much to everyone in Toronto that has gone out of there way to make me feel so welcome i really do love it here!”, she tweeted yesterday.

She has been the face of the brand since January, when she replaced grunge-girl Taylor Momsen.

She seems to be a lot more enthusiastic about her job than her predecessor, and even went as far as posting a picture of the goodies she’d been sent by MG, and thanking them for them.

Kim’s Kustom Wedding Shoes

Standard

Kim Kardashian posted pictures of her wedding day footwear on her blog earlier. She wore three different (almost identical) pairs of custom- made Giuseppe Zanotti heels during the evening. With prices in the US ranging from $595- $695, you can bet that most Americans won’t be able to copy her anytime soon. I’m sure that after a nice little plug on her website, Mr. Zanotti will be more than happy to give Kim the shoes for free. Her clever endorsement deals have helped save her and Kris $20 million in wedding costs!

“So I honestly cant even begin to describe how I felt on my wedding day and a lot of it is because I felt so good in what I was wearing and how comfortable I was! Giuseppe Zannoti custom made me three pairs of GORGEOUS heels to go with each Vera Wang gown. The first pair was go with the princess dress that I wore during the wedding ceremony. They are closed-toe off-white satin with the crystal heel. I needed the height and wanted a sturdy heel because I was so afraid I was going to trip walking down the aisle! LOL.”

“For my mermaid gown I wore the peep toe white heels with the amazing beads on them. And then thirdly, I wore the simple satin sling back peep toes with my simple satin Old Hollywood gown. On your wedding say there’s so much focus on the gown and you don’t even see the shoes but I had to take some pics and share with you how stunning they are! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Mr. Zannoti! I am forever grateful you made this day that much more special!”

Cheryl Sets Foot On Film Set

Standard

Cheryl Cole filmed her scenes for high-budget movie ‘What To Expect When You’re Expecting‘ in Atlanta, Georgia, yesterday, wearing a black lace Pucci dress and patent Louboutin pumps.

She and a co-star sipped on their Starbucks (frappuccino, Chez?) between takes, with Cheryl switching to the slightly comfier option of sandals.

She’ll be spending a lot more time with Cameron Diaz, who plays a character called Jules- Cheryl‘s character is a talent show judge. The pair must’ve gotten close already, as she tweeted her a birthday message earlier: “It’s me CC! WHERE MY SOLDIERS AT…….?!!! I can’t believe what my fingers are doing but yes I’m tweeting :-s so here goes…X Happy birthday Cameron, you sexy beeeyyaatchh…X.”

However, it doesn’t seem she’s got the acting bug yet”: “It doesn’t mean she suddenly wants to become an actress. It was just an opportunity that has come up while she has been having some down time and she thought it would be great fun to take part.”

When it was announced last month, her spokesperson said: “Cheryl Cole is confirmed for a small cameo appearance in the film ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting‘.”

Can’t wait to see what they do about her accent!

Demi’s Awkard Run-In With Joe Jonas At VMAs

Standard

Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas had their first awkward post-breakup run in at last night’s MTV VMAs at the Nokia Theatre in LA.

She was by far the best dressed of the evening, wearing a silver embellished halter dress with matching Louboutins.

Her make-up artist friend Joyce Bonelli did her makeup for the event, which consisted of lots of eyeliner, silver eyeshadow and big eyelashes!

She was there to present an award with Glee’s Chord Overstreet, and gave ‘Best Collaboration‘ to Katy Perry and Kanye West for “E.T.

“Umm… My feet right now.. #dying #VMAs BUT had fun presenting with @chordoverstreet! Always fun seeing him. I’ve gained weight. Get over it. That’s what happens when you get out of treatment for AN EATING DISORDER 🙂 #UNBROKEN #920 Guess what, I’m healthy and happy, and if you’re hating on my weight you obviously aren’t,” she tweeted afterwards.

Baby On The Way For Beyoncé

Standard

Beyoncé showed the crowds that she is pregnant with husband Jay Z ‘s baby at last night’s 2011 MTV Video Music Awards.

She warned reporters that she had a surprise in store, clutching her stomach protectively on the red carpet.

She must be at least 3 months along, as back in June she told Piers Morgan: “I always said I was going to have a baby at 30. I’m 29 now. But I also said I was going to retire at 30. So I don’t know. I’m not retiring, I tell you.”

She ripped her heavily sequined jacket off at the end of her performance, where a little bump was visible, for which she received rapturous applause from the crowd (and Jay!) She won the ‘Best Choreography in a Video‘ award for single ‘Run The World (Girls)‘.

Taylor & Reese Moan About Jake Over Lunch Date

Standard

Taylor Swift & Reese Witherspoon met up for lunch on Friday at LA eatery Boa Steakhouse, a favourite haunt of Taylor’s.

After their meal, Reese was even kind enough to drop Taylor home. The pair first met at the ‘Academy of Country Music Awards‘ back in April, and seem to have bonded in recent months, with both having dated a certain actor named Jake Gyllenahaal.

Reese was with Jake from 2007 to 2009, whilst his and Taylor‘s relationship lasted just a couple of months, with the pair splitting last December.

Taylor is busy performing sold out shows at LA’s Staples Center currently, but took a quick three-day break with her band earlier last week.

“I found a three day window in August and invited all the girls you see onstage (one fiddle player, one backup singer, two dancers, three aerialists) to go with me to one of the places on my list: Charleston, South Carolina. Sometimes I take lots of pictures of what’s going on in my life. For these three days, that’s what I did. And because your niceness is why I get to take vacations, I thought I’d share them with you.”

TOWIE’s Lauren Dumped By Fiancé Mark

Standard

Another day, another TOWIE couple breaks up…Lauren Goodger has been unceremoniously dumped by fiancé Mark Wright over alleged cheating claims.

She was papped today carrying a box of her possessions out of his flat with a friend, who accompanied her for moral support.

Mark is clearly taking the split a lot better, having spent the weekend at Edinburgh’s TV festival, posting on Twitter: “To all who are asking I can confirm me and Lauren have separated. That’s all i can say now. She will always have a place in my heart.”

His spokesperson added: “It is true Mark has split with Lauren and asked her to move out of his flat two days ago.”

The cause for their split is that Mark claims to have discovered that Lauren had been cheating on him with another guy and she was kissing and getting close to him while Mark was in Marbs.

Reading Festival Roundup

Standard

I lost my festival virginity yesterday. Not my virginity at a festival though! Me and two of my friends, (Mel and Cat), bought a day pass for Friday at Reading, and let me tell you, it was INSANE.

We arrived just after lunchtime, and naturally, seeing as we’re in England, it started to pour with rain, but luckily we had ponchos at the ready (thanks Mum!)

We made our way towards the main Radio 1 stage and caught the end of The Blackout‘s set (all I remember from their performance was lead singer Sean Smith instructing male audience members to get so close to the women there that they all got erections. And this was one of the less- controversial things he said).

We found a smaller stage in a tent area and watched some heavily- bearded ginger singer, (no, not an unshaven Ed Sheeran), bash around on a keyboard for a while, (we had a front row spot!), before heading back to the thick of the action at the main stage.

The bands I watched include screamo group ‘Bring Me The Horizon‘, (who’s lead signer Oli Sykes had gained a fan in me by the end of their set), ‘The Offspring’, ‘Deftones’, ’30 Seconds To Mars‘, and la crème de la crème, ‘My Chemical Romance‘, who I’ve now seen 5 times!

As we were watching ‘The Deftones‘, my friend pointed to the balcony, where Mikey Way (and supposedly Gerard) were stood watching and taking pictures. Cue total fan girl moment!

Jared Leto kicked off the ‘30 Seconds To Mars‘ with a dramatic move; he rose slowly onto the stage on a small podium, clad in a leather studded jacket and long dress/ skirt thing. (No, I’m not joking).

Friends, family, and famous fans of the performers watching from the side of the stage

Thankfully another audience member noticed this hideous piece of clothing too, and attempted to rip it off (and took his top off with it, which gave the crowd plenty to scream at).

“COVERED IN MUD, SHIRT RIPPED OFF MY BACK, AND PUT ON A F’ING TIGER SUIT A KID GAVE ME FROM THE CROWD. EPIC FUCKING NIGHT AT READING!! TANX!!”, Jared tweeted afterwards.

MCR closed the show with a fiery set, including songs from their catalog such as ‘Nananana’, ‘I’m Not Okay’, ‘Planetary (Go!)’, ‘Famous Last Words’, ‘S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W’, ‘Sing’, and the best song ever in my opinion, ‘Welcome To The Black Parade’.

Gerard told BBC’s ‘Newsbeat’ about festival preparation backstage: “We’ve been thinking about this show for eight months, every single day. We’ve got a lot of production that we’ve never used before so it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Gerard Way *swoons*

Queen guitarist Brian May joined them onstage for a performance of ‘We Will Rock You‘, and Gerard introduced him by saying: “Ladies and gentleman, Brian f**king May”.”

“Really excited for tonight’s show…the amount of excitement may only be dwarfed by my sleep deprivation. Hope everyone @ the Fest is well,” tweeted MCR guitarist Frank Iero.

Getting wellied!

Before I waited for them to appear onstage, I got chatting to a girl named Julia next to me, who asked if I’d watched her band play earlier; it turns out she’s a 14-year-old singer based in LA in a band called ‘Cherri Bomb‘, and she told me that they have an EP on iTunes.

When I asked her if she’d met MCR she told me she’d met Gerard Way 5 times, and had even hung out with him backstage in catering that day. Whilst I tried not to die of jealousy, or rip her VIP pass from her, I asked about how she tours when she’s meant to be at school; it turns out she’s actually home schooled, and left her parents at home for a few weeks.

Despite arriving home at 2am today, and getting up for work just a few hours later, I had a great day! (I had to miss 2/3 of the MCR set in order to run to the train station though, which sucked.) The only downer for me was some of the horrible people in the crowd that took it too far; I got pushed, shoved, punched, and even had a cup of water poured down my hotpants!

Ah well, teenagers have to do these things! 🙂

Katy Has A Blast At Six Flags

Standard

After performing another sell-out gig at Chicago’s Allstate Arena Sunday, Katy Perry and her tour crew spent a day at the Six Flags Great America theme park in Gurnee.

Singer friend Natalia Kills also joined the group on rides such as Vertical Velocity and Raging Bull.

The trip was a celebration of the first anniversary of ‘Teenage Dream‘. “Happy 1 year birthday to Teenage Dream! We made history, it’s been a beautiful year! SO thankful!,” Katy tweeted.

This weekend she will attend MTV Video Music Awards, where she is nominated in 10 categories!

Justin Bieber Crashes Taylor Swift’s Gig

Standard

Justin Bieber gatecrashed Taylor Swift‘s gig at LA’s Staple Centre last night, where the pair performed an unplanned duet of ‘Baby‘. 13,500 people in the arena started screaming when Taylor asked, “Who wants to see my friend Justin?”

“You think you’ve heard LOUD screaming in your life. Then @justinbieber comes out and does a surprise song during your show. Woah. Unreal,” Taylor tweeted afterwards.

Justin responded with: “@taylorswift13 we should do that more often. 🙂 great show! #muchlove.”

A collaboration could actually be on the cards, with one fan stating: Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber should do a song together.”
