Katie Waissel Beaten By Future Ex-Husband In Vicious Attack

Standard

Former ‘X Factor‘ contestant and ‘Red Velvet‘ front woman Katie Waissel has posted a shocking picture on her Twitter page Sunday showing bruises she received from her ex in a vicious attack.

She separated from her ex husband Brad Alphonso recently after a 2 month-long marriage, and accidentally bumped into him in LA over the weekend, where she’s been working on her music. He was arrested by police and remanded in custody, but was released a few hours later without further charges.

The Twitter tirade went: “This doesn’t wash with me. Nothing like a name and shame at 02:54 am Los Angeles time. He’s a fucking liar he’s an asshole he’s a bastard I’m better off without a lower!!#PrettyFaceFor5Mins. #UntillTheyGetToKnowYou. Keep falling for the bullshit! Never again! Just have to think new inspiration for new material! #Asshole.”

Rita Ora Says No To ‘X Factor’ Role

Standard

Rita Ora is a busy lady right now, and is mid-way through a tour (which I happened to attend last weekend in Cardiff!), so it’s no surprise that the lady cannot commit to this year’s ‘X Factor.’

The raunchy singer spoke to ‘The Evening Standard‘ about her judging potential: “There were talks in the past few months. But if I were to take on that role it would have to be at a point when I could give it my full attention. I have so much to accomplish first and it’s kind of a full-time job being on ‘X Factor‘. It’s not like a 9 to 5. It’s constant, for months. Not that I have anything against it. I love it but if I was to take on a full-time role it would be at a point when I’m loads of albums in. Being a guest is easier – you can say, ‘Yes’, to people and not have to mentor them.”

Lady Gaga’s Former Assistant Sues

Standard

Lady Gaga‘s former assistant Jennifer O’Neil is suing the singer for refusing to pay for 7,168 hours of overtime, totaling in excess of $380,000 (£243,000). Jennifer‘s primary job was to keep Gaga running between 20092011, but she claims that the job requirements surpassed her expectations by far, and that she was required to perform a number of unsuitable tasks.

For example, she accuses Gaga of forcing her to share a bed with her because she doesn’t like sleeping alone. Gaga will refuse to pay her a cent more, and will instead give her other ‘Haus of Gaga‘ employees a share of the fees, and she will take particular care of one employee called Sonja, who has breast cancer and needs a mastectomy.

The New York Post‘ claim that in a meeting with lawyers last August about the case, Gaga ranted: “She’s a fucking hood rat who is suing me for money that she didn’t earn. She’s just — she thinks she’s just like the queen of the universe. And, you know what, she didn’t want to be a slave to one, because in my work and what I do, I’m the queen of the universe every day. O’Neil knew exactly what she was getting into, and she knew there was no overtime, and I never paid her overtime the first time I hired her, so why would she be paid overtime the second time? This whole case is bullshit, and you know it. I’m quite wonderful to everybody that works for me, and I am completely aghast to what a disgusting human being that you have become to sue me like this. I’m not in any way discounting how hard an 8 hour work day can be, or discounting the role of an assistant.”

At the start of the week, Gaga addressed the issue on Twitter, implying that she was a lot closer to her than initial reports suggested: “Everyone’s headlines need an updating. “former assistant” is actually “my best friend from NY since I was 19.” Painful stuff.”

Harry Styles Given Stripper Lapdance For 19th Birthday Present

Standard

Harry Styles has spent the last 2 nights living it up and celebrating his 19th birthday in London, and last night the party boy was given quite a memorable gift…a visit from a stripper, in the middle of a bar!

The ‘One Direction‘ FittyMcFitterson’s gift was arranged by ‘Radio 1‘ DJ/ pal Nick Grimshaw. The embarrassed teenager spoke to ‘The Sun’ about the evening’s antics: “It was great. I was in stitches, it was really funny. We had a great night. Grimmy said I had to sit there because he was bringing a cake. He started telling everyone to be quiet but I could see the cake in the kitchen and the candles weren’t lit, so I was like, ‘What’s going on?’. Then Grimmy said, ‘Someone in here is underage’ and I saw a police hat bobbing through the crowd. I was like, ‘Oh no’. The stripper didn’t really say anything, she just began her routine. I have never seen my manager run so quick to cover the CCTV cameras but the pictures got out anyway. She stripped down to her underwear but unfortunately there was a no-nudity policy in the bar. She didn’t handcuff me but the funniest part was that when she finished she said, ‘I’m really sorry I couldn’t find my truncheon so I had to bring my nunchucks’. That was a bit weird. Then a guy in our group came up and said, ‘I went to college with her’.”

Speidi Offered Own Reality TV Show

Standard

Devilish ‘Celebrity Big Brother‘ runners up Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are set to rake in a thousands in a new TV deal. ‘Channel 5‘ are developing a new reality TV show featuring the former ‘The Hills‘ stars, titled ‘The Speidi Story.’

For now it is planned to be a one-off special, and will feature their time on ‘The Hills‘ to their recent experience in the ‘Big Brother‘ house. A ‘Channel 5‘ spokesperson told Virgin Media: “Speidi have gone from being America‘s most-loathed couple to a new UK phenomenon, thanks to ‘Celeb Big Brother‘. This is their story.” Can’t wait to watch it…

Beyoncé Admits To Lip-Syncing For Obama’s Inauguration Ceremony

Standard

Beyoncé is the last singer I can imagine to be crafty and lip-sync for a performance, but that’s exactly what she did last week for President Obama‘s inauguration ceremony. The world-class vocalist performed a rendition of the national anthem, and speculation as to whether it was totally live arose after she removed her ear piece.

At a New Orleans press conference for the US ‘Superbowl’ event (to be held on Sunday), she confessed to using the tactic: “I practice until my feet bleed and I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra. Due to no proper sound check, I did not feel comfortable taking a risk. It was about the president and the inauguration, and I wanted to make him and my country proud, so I decided to sing along with my pre-recorded track, which is very common in the music industry. And I’m very proud of my performance. Any questions?”

She insists that her performance on Sunday will be completely live, as she will have had sufficient time to rehearse. I’m shocked Bey
