Usher’s Stalker In Psychiatric Ward

Standard

Usher‘s crazy stalker Darshelle Jones-Rakestraw was arrested last Sunday in front of his house, and has now been admitted to a psychiatric hospital for tests. She arrived at the singer’s house in Atlanta uninvited, and has forced him to take out a restraining order against her.

When the police arrived they found her sat on his front porch using her ‘iPad‘, after Usher spotted her via hidden surveillance cameras around his property. After being admitted to ‘Emory Johns Creek Hospital‘, she was released and is due to appear in court next month. She is clearly delusional, as she was telling doctors that she was Usher‘s wife, and had lost her door keys. She has since posted a ‘YouTube‘ video in which she defends her actions, and refutes his claims: “I’m not a stalker. He has officially slandered me and defamed my character.”

Church Partied With Britney At 15

Standard

Welsh singer Charlotte Church has told Graham Norton that she met Britney Spears at a party in the early days of her singing career, when she was just 15. She told him about her introduction to the music legend, and how she was basically snubbed by her.

“I was at a party and Britney was there. Her PA came up to me and said, “Britney is a massive fan and would really like to meet you,” and I was like, “okay, not a problem,” and I went over and Britney just kind of turned and said, “hi” then turned away and carried on. The woman ushered me away and said, “That was so amazing for Britney, she just loved you.”

Tom Cruise & Katie To Divorce

Standard

Tom Cruise was no doubt shocked today to hear that wife Katie Holmes had filed for divorce after 5 years of marriage. She initiated the split, and is understood to have filed for sole custody of the couple’s daughter Suri, 6.

Her lawyer Jonathan Wolfe told ‘People‘ magazine today: “This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family. Katie‘s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.” Meanwhile, Tom‘s spokesperson added on his behalf: “Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his 3 children.”

Adele Confirms 1st Pregnancy

Standard

Chart-topping machine Adele has announced her 1st pregnancy today with boyfriend Simon Konecki. In a rare post on her official website, she shared: “I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our 1st child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele.”

Here’s a bunch of humorous thoughts from Twitter users today: “Rumor has it there’s something rolling in the deep of Adele‘s uterus. Aka: She’s pregnant, DAMNNNNN!”; “Now that Adele is pregnant, Blue Ivy is irrelevant”; “I thought Adele was pregnant for the past 5 years.”

Miley Cyrus Given Free Takeaway

Standard

Miley Cyrus and a pal had a cheap lunch at US takeaway joint ‘In & Out‘ in Toluca Lake, California yesterday when she forgot to bring her purse. The teen singer rooted around in her bag when she pulled up at the order window in her white ‘Mercedes-Benz‘, but was unable to produce it. In the end the server kindly gave them their meals (protein filled burgers with a side of chips) for free, and they parked up and enjoyed their meal, before heading to the studio.

Earlier this week she supported fiancée Liam Hemsworth at the ‘Australians In Film Awards‘, where she looked amazing in an LBD- this girl needs fattening up a little!

Michael McIntyre Injured Onstage

Standard

Comedian Michael McIntyre probably didn’t see the funny side the other day when he performed a stand-up show in Ireland. During a routine where he mocked the England team’s goalkeeper Joe Hart, who made a poor attempt to save Andrea Pirlo‘s penalty last Sunday, he hurt his thigh, reports ‘The Sun.’

A while later he returned on crutches, and performed the rest of the show sitting down, joking to the audience: “You’re entitled to a refund. It isn’t the show you paid for — unless you enjoy casualty waiting rooms.” What a trooper!

Rihanna Evacuated From Hotel Fire

Standard

Rihanna was given a rude awakening yesterday morning when she and her team were evacuated from ‘The Corintha Hotel‘ in London, where she has been staying over the last week. She and the 300 other guests were marched out after a fire broke out in a lift shaft.

She was clearly unappreciative of the drama so early, and tweeted: “Fire in the Telly #evacuationlife. Roamin da streets since 6am”, and an image of her staring sleepily from the back of a car. The ‘London Fire Brigade‘ have reported that there were no injuries sustained on the premises due to the flames. They have tweeted: “We dealt with a small fire in a lift shaft at a hotel on Whitehall Place, SW1 this morning. Rihanna was 1 of 300 evacuated… no-one was injured.”

Katy Perry Pads Bra With Tissues

Standard

Katy Perry committed a bit of a fashion faux-pas last night when some tissues that she had secreted in her bra beneath her strapless dress decided to unleash themselves. Bra padding is common for smaller busted girls, so it makes absolutely no sense why she would have to take these measures with the size of her twins!

She attended the Californian premiere of ‘Part Of Me: 3D‘, and then partied it up with Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Robert Pattinson at actor David Arquette‘s new bar, ‘Bootsy Bellows,’ and ‘Chateau Marmont’. The group were treated to a ride in the Bieb‘s new ‘Mercedes Benz‘ mini van after her appearance on the pink carpet outside the ‘Grauman’s Theatre‘, where she did a special performance, emerging from a giant popcorn box in a cinema food themed outfit.

Megan Fox’s Pregnant Belly

Standard

After seeing this picture, I think it’s pretty safe to say that ‘Transformers‘ actress Megan Fox is very, definitely, pregnant. She and husband Brian Austin Green celebrated their 2nd wedding anniversary in Kona, Hawaii this week, and looked extremely in love as he cradled her small baby bump, and even bent down to kiss it.

A friend of the couple told ‘US Weekly‘: “It’s a tradition for them to come back every year and celebrate their anniversary. This year they have a baby on board and were excited to share the news with all of the friends on staff they have made there over the last several years. The pregnancy was planned. She has wanted a baby with Brian for a while.”

Nicki Minaj Tour Review London

Standard

For a while now I’ve been a really big fan of US rapper/ singer Nicki Minaj. Yesterday my best friend and I waited 13 hours in total with the aim of meeting one of our idol before or after her ‘Pink Friday‘ show. We arrived at the ‘HMV Hammersmith Apollo‘ in London just before midday, and waited 7 hours for the doors to open, running for a place in the 3rd or 4th line when we spotted the venue. When the doors finally opened, there was of course the usual long wait for the support act (new mediocre girlband ‘Stooshe‘), before Nicki herself arrived onstage at around half 9.

As far as sets go, hers was fairly impressive, appearing to the audience like a room in a ‘Barbie‘ house. She had only 3 or 4 costume changes (my fave was the pink hotpants), and she wore a Marilyn Monroe inspired dress and wig for the track of the same name.

Her vocals sounded great as ever, but some of the tracks seemed very disjointed. She was only onstage for about an hour and 20 minutes, and for at least a quarter of that time, fans were left wondering where she’d disappeared to, as studio versions of her tracks were played, and she was nowhere in sight. It seemed odd that she would skip out the majority of verses in her tracks when she could have easily filled the time. She complained at the end though that she wanted to stay longer but would be heavily fined like she was the night previously for overrunning. Mind you, I was happy that she played the majority of my favourite songs (‘Pound The Alarm‘, ‘Whip It’, ‘Automatic,’ ‘Marilyn Monroe‘ etc). Considering that collaborators Drake, Rihanna and Trey Songz are all in London at the moment, it was a shame that none of them were able to join her during the ‘features’ mash-up.

A definite highlight was when she brought die-hard fan ‘@GalacticBarbie‘ onstage to thank her for her support from the beginning, and told the story of when they first met at an airport a few years ago, and how Nicki had spotted the unusual name in her mentions on Twitter. She also invited several other members of the audience (and a rude, drunk man in a denim shirt who pushed his way right to the front row) to sing and dance alongside her for a track. Towards the of the short but sweet show, she sprayed fans with a giant smoke-filled gun, and white ticket tape fell from the ceiling during the encore, ‘Superbass.’

Straight after the show we headed to the barriers next to the venue’s exit, and were pre-warned by security guards that there was a 50/50 chance that she would stop for fans. By 2am, when she and the rest of us left, there can’t have been more than 25 fans left. There I was, camera, Sharpie and album booklet in my hand, and all she did was poke her head out of her silver Mercedes, wave, and let her driver speed her off into the distance. We all legged it after her car but they didn’t stop this time (the night before a boy jumped in front of her car to get her to stop). So close but yet so far! We got up close to her sidekick SB, (“hey yo SB, what the fucks good?!”), and even had our picture taken with ‘Radio 1DJ Tim Westwood (who had his own personal shout-out from Nicki during the show).

Considering the amount of money I parted with for train fares, concert tickets and a hotel, I didn’t think I got my moneys worth out of the experience. The 3 hour wait in the cold after the show and her refusal to speak to fans enraged me for sure. Would I go see her again? Sure, if someone paid for me! I still love her of course but this experience has definitely made me question why celebrities forget who got them famous in the 1st place so fast- but I am determined to get that picture with her one day!
