Rihanna Admitted To Hospital

Standard

Rihanna has been admitted to a Swedish hospital, and has been hooked up to an IV drip with severe flu.

Speaking exclusively to ‘Us Weekly‘, she said: “I am sorry to everyone who was coming out to my show in Malmo, Sweden. I was so excited to perform for you all. It would have been a great time. So much better than being sick with the flu, ugh! I’m really disappointed I couldn’t be there.”

“Sorry Malmo! #LOUDtour,” she wrote alongside this picture.

Cher’s Iced Up For ‘X Factor’ Performance

Standard

Cher Lloyd returned to ‘The X Factor‘ stage last night to give a live performance of her new single, ‘With Ur Love‘, a duet recorded with Mike Posner.

She opted for an adorable harlequin diamond print outfit, which consisted of a mini skirt and bow crop top, which exposed her rock solid abs.

The pièce de résistance came in the form of a bargain £6.99 ‘Bits & Bows’ iced gem ring, available to buy here.

Her non-stop work schedule has obviously had a huge impact on her sleeping pattern, telling host Dermot O’Leary, “I cant remember the last time I had a good nights sleep. But I’ve worked hard and I’m hoping it’s paid off.”

She will release her first album on ‘Syco Music‘, ‘Sticks + Stones‘, next month.

She definitely seemed to be having a few tuning issues last night, and she was audibly struggling to sing the higher notes in the build up to the chorus.

Sad Kim Kardashian Confirms Divorce Plans

Standard

Just 72 days after marrying Kris Humpries, Kim Kardashian has filed for a divorce on the grounds of “irreconcilable differences.”

Keeping Up With The Kardashians‘ producers ‘E!‘ have released a statement regarding the shock split: “All of us at ‘E!‘ are surprised and saddened by this news, and we send our support to Kim and Kris at this difficult time. The Kardashians have always been uniquely open with all aspects of their lives from joyous events to intimate moments to heartbreaking transitions. ‘E!‘ will continue to share the fascinating real lives and larger-than-life existence of this close-knit family.”

Family friend Ryan Seacrest told his millions of Twitter followers a couple of hours ago: “Yes @kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning. I touched base with her, getting a statement in just a few minutes.”

Kim‘s official statement on the divorce reads: “After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.”

‘Momager’ Kris Jenner forced the couple to sign a prenuptial agreement before their vows, so Kim is unlikely to suffer financially, and could easily wangle a magazine deal of two out of this. She’s hired top divorce lawyer Laura Wasser to handle her case, who has previously worked with Britney Spears and Angelina Jolie.

It’s sad that she was more in love with the idea of her dream wedding that she was with Kris.

Kim Turns Red For Halloween

Standard

Kim Kardashian channeled Uma Thurman into her look for the ‘Midori Green Party‘ held in New York last night.

She looked fierce as Batman‘s enemy Poison Ivy, and was accompanied by PR expert Jonathan Cheban, who dressed up as Robin.

Earlier in the afternoon, she wrote on her Twitter: “Glamming up for my ‘Midori‘ Halloween party at ‘Lavo‘ tonight! I have bright red hair! OMG this is kray! Seriously @MonicaRoseStyle @robscheppy & @jOYCEBONELLi worked their MAGIC on my Halloween costume this year! They did their THANG!”

She seemed less than impressed by pal Heidi Klum‘s spook-tacular corpse face though, tweeting: “I’m scared! LOL I want u 2 pick my costume next year,” when Heidi sent her a picture, with the caption “I think I look sexier than you tonight.”

Lindsay Goes For Hollywood Smile

Standard

Lindsay Lohan‘s yellow nicotine-stained teeth have been given an upgrade with a new whitening treatment.

The troublesome actress posted a picture of her pearly white smile on Twitter, with the caption: “Thanks Dr Dorfmann for the zoom… My gums are so sore though!”

The cash-strapped star is no doubt hoping for some free treatments after he viral plug, as she’s recently swapped high-paying film roles for community service at a morgue.

People first spotted her dirty looking teeth last month at ‘THQ’s Saints Row: The Third On The 12th‘ event.

Last week she wrote on her Twitter: “How do you manage to get and eye abrasion from the dentist’s office?!” I’ve no idea Lindsay…only you.

Blair In Cuffs

Standard

Leighton Meester looked an arresting sight today in New York playing ‘Gossip Girl‘ character Blair Waldorf.

She was spotted drunkenly convincing a police officer into arresting her during her hen night in Greenwich Village, and cast mate Ed Westwick, who plays Chuck Bass, looked on in despair.

She and Blake Lively are the inspiration behind a new ‘Warner Brothers‘ and ‘Romeo & Juliet Couture‘ clothing collaboration, which features printed tees, pleated skirts, ruffled chiffon party dresses and skinny jeans.

The pieces cost from $80-$200, and are sold in stores in the US such as ‘Kitson‘ and ‘Saks‘.

ITV‘ confirmed her replacement earlier on to ‘The Daily Mail‘: “It is true that Alexandra is replacing Kelly tonight, but we have no further information at present.”
