I want to declare my mad love for Iggy Azalea right now. Up to a point. This is that point.
, Los Angeles, CA – 04/9/2015 – Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea film a Music Video -PHOTO by: Vince Flores/startraksphoto.com
Welcome to the fabulous new release by mostly Britney Spears with a dash of Iggy Azalea to push it into the Top 40 billboard hits. It’s called ‘Pretty Girls’ because really it’s all you hear during this god awful mess. It tried to be some 80s-ish redux of ‘Earth Girls are Easy’ mixed with basic 80s trash style, and turned into a straight train wreck of idiocy. Britney is repetitive more than usual and the itsy-bitsy Iggy part of her rapping is barely hearable. Overall, bad, bad, FAIL.
I know I am scathing and harsh when it comes to stuff like this so I will let you gauge for yourself, how, erm, interesting this video is. Good luck and try not to drop your jaw in disbelief too hard.
Growing up Joan Rivers was always there. On TV as a comedienne, on The Muppets with Miss Piggy and fighting the good fight with the Fashion Police. Never once did she not appreciate the funny things and people in life. Always stellar, a star and an inspiration Joan Rivers is indeed, the definition of Comedy itself.
Sadly today we lost Joan Rivers at 81. Surrounded by friends and family she left us. Melissa Rivers her daughter released this statement;
“It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers. She passed peacefully at 1:17pm surrounded by family and close friends. My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother.
Cooper and I have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers we have received from around the world. They have been heard and appreciated.
My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon.” –Melissa Rivers
We will truly miss you Joan. You were, and always will be an inspiration.
Robin Williams signed off today leaving millions of dedicated fans and friends hanging their heads in loss.
Jay Paul for The New York Times
Not only was Robin Williams and amazing comedian and great actor but his legacy spans over forty years, leaving us with classics like Mork & Mindy, Popeye, Jumanji, The Fisher King and the everlasting classic Dead Poet’s Society.
Our heart goes out not only to him, but his family and wife Susan Schneider, who released the following statement to the New York Times’ Dave Itzkoff:
“This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope that the focus will not be on Robin’s death but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”
Robin Williams had been battling depression and died from an apparent suicide from asphyxia, in his home, in Marin County.
Nanoo, Nanoo to a great actor. We’re sorry you signed out Robin Williams.
In a strange turn of events, Peaches Geldof, daughter of rock icon Bob Geldof, was found dead in her home in the UK today.
Peaches was a very young, 25 years old.
Peaches Geldof was a LA favorite and often went to the clubs, restaurants and sometimes even came out to support our lovely LAFW. Sadly, she will not be gracing us with her presence anymore.
The night before Peaches died she posted a picture of her mother on her instagram. Her mother died of a drug overdose at 41, so this may have been a clue towards Peaches Geldof’s death. Peaches had past issues with drug abuse, namely heroin, so the question of an overdose is flooding the tabloids. Although it is death is never pretty, and especially when it involves drugs, we hope there was no foul play involved. Details are still unfolding.
Condolences to the Geldolf family and friends. No matter how you look at it, it’s a shame. Rest well Peaches Geldof, you will be missed.
As the fashion world reels to the news the the ever relevant irrelevant ‘Kimye’ has taken over the Vogue cover, Naomi Campbell has spoken out. Or perhaps pulled the most epic LOL on the face of the planet. Normally I think she is stone cold B*tch, which can be great in fashion and modeling. No, really. However this time I want to hug that frozen goddess and thank her. Her rebuttal to the nasty made everyone smile. Possibly even Anna Wintour.
With an epic performance at the VMA’s and ‘Applause’ kicking the charts in the nads I would expect a crazy, fun, pop art, gay friendly Gaga to bring the greatness to her persona. A new Andy Warhol-esque diva perhaps? Something that is totally ‘ArtPop’?
Instead the Huffpost revealed this.
Oh, snap with a side of incredi-fail. Gaga is starting to look like a drag queen at 2:30am, after partying at The Abbey in West Hollywood, on Halloween night, aka, not so pretty.
I’m not sure what’s worse. Is it the smushed wig under a turban only Elizabeth Taylor could pull off? It looks akin to something that grew under my fridge a couple of months back. Her boobs are so squished, it literally is starting to give me sympathy pains.
Maybe it’s the dress that is screaming K-town $5 special? Perhaps it is the stoner glasses left over from the Lennon does acid while doing Yoko era? Maybe it’s just the ‘I did to many drugs and need a 14 hour nap’ face? Perhaps, it’s the fact my roommate thought I was showing her another picture of the 50-60 something year old Angelyne (at least she has style). The only redeemable thing here is the shoes. They are plain and simple and truly DO NOT match the outfit and that’s why they work.
Yes, Gaga has truly hit the ‘Diva down for the count’ look. Didn’t she just tell Miley Cyrus that drugs ‘eat your soul’?
I remember the days of new, young, hot and svelte Gaga. She was wry, witty and uber, uber fierce with a side of fucking awesome. She made videos with hot piece Alexander Skarsgard and worked it in rubber better than any bitch.
What happened? We will never know. Here’s hoping Gaga brings back the fierce. Just in case you need to remember what that looks like here is the video for ‘Paparazzi’. Maybe she will read this and it will snap her back into shape.
Vanessa Hudgens, ex-Disney kid, Ex of Zac Efron and Ex-High School Music twenty something girl. She’s go loads of ca$$$h, and a career that has been a really good PR stunt. She’s boho, cute and a Coachella kind of gal.
So where in the holy hell did this come from. Here we have a 90’s throwback video with a day-glo twist that hurts my ears, eyes and makes my skin crawl. I’m not sure if this is three minutes of a cheer, or a song. I think secretly Disney had something to do with this mess. And it is VERY not cute.
It seems that YLA are actually the ones who are in charge of co-cheering this song into existence and producing it. Although I give them props for using the B list tween for her fame to move up, this was pretty much a bad move. YLA needs to take their name off this hot 90s mess. This was not meant to be seen by the public girls. And our tween superstar Vanessa? Vanessa Hudgens needs to stick to tween moves with hot leading men.
Every Disney kid has to try to put out a hit single. Sorry Vanessa H. fans, this is definitely a miss.
All the world is your stage, until you get busted. Then you are just another Disney kid.
Justin Bieber stepped into the shoes of many a Disney kid by getting busted for drugs, Wednesday night, in Stockholm. The Swedish authorities noses were super sensitive and caught a ‘whiff’ of something funny smelling as Bieber boarded his tour bus last night. No, it was not Nag Champa.
“A colleague sensed what was considered to be a strong smell of marijuana,” Stockholm police spokesman Lars Byström told the Aftonbladet newspaper.
Sensed? What is this? A new B movie in the making? A cop with a ‘weed’ sense that busts pot smokers is coming for YOU.
Being Swedish I have to give my people props for busting the Bieber and bringing this to light. Being compassionate I feel for the Bieber. I live in California where weed is like, well, a weed. There are at least 6 medical marijuana clinics with in walking radius of my apartment in West Hollywood. SIX. Yeah we are totally mellow out here in California FOR A REASON.
Don’t worry. Their love for Bieber conquered all Beliebers,
“We don’t have any concrete suspicions against any specific person; there were several people on the bus,” Byström told Aftonbladet.
Technically speaking it could have been his BFF Lil Twist, or a roadie. Let’s hope he gets off with a small fine. Bieber has had enough controversy on this European tour.
Yes, that’s right. Rihanna and Chris Brown are back together.
Or are they? More importantly do we care?
According to a ‘source’ that contacted UsWeekly the couple are back together. Rihanna and Chris Brown are still ‘having issues’ aka fighting like horny cats and dogs, but are trying to make it work. Rihanna recently performed in Los Angeles for her ‘Diamonds’ tour and got all cryptic again. We guess she was talking about her uber love/hate relationship with a certain brother with the initials C and B.
“How many of you are in love?” Riri asked, “How many of you hate love? How many of you don’t fucking understand it? I’m in that group.”
Girl we all feel that way but ESPECIALLY about your love for Chris Brown.
Searching through today and yesterday’s news I came across this picture. Supposedly it’s LeAnn Rimes taking Eddie C’s son to his little league game.
And it stopped me cold.
First I would like to say that LeAnn Rimes is looking unrecognizable. Her face has turned into a catastrophe from plastic surgery and sadly, starving herself. I seriously with Eddie Cibrian would step forward and help his withering wife. If she’s going to be a step-mother to his children and he cares AT ALL he will take the time to do something and help her. Obviously this is a moot point.
Now let’s analyze what’s wrong here (besides her starting to look like a cat woman).
The sports long sleeve sweater is fine. If it were paired with ANYTHING else. In the entire world. I could give her a pass but not only is this incredibad, but elf booties? Those were hot on the runway about 2-3 years ago. A passing fad I am thankful most people avoided. The fakin’ vinyl/leather 80’s runner shorts, I have no comment for. They should be burned….immediately. Accessories? A white leather hobo bag and a gold bracelet that go with nothing she is wearing.
The whole thing is just a mess and anyone who has ever had a stylist should know this. Especially LeAnn.
My hope is Brand Glanville grabs her son and takes him away before LeAnn traumatizes him with her terrible fashion sense. Think about the children!
I love Kelly Osbourne. She reminds me of her spitfire mom and has overcome so damn much. With her job on E! Fashion police as a fashion guru du jour I am sad to say Kelly had a seizure on set.
According to the presses (or the sad rag known as TMZ), Kelly told Melissa Rivers (who was filling for Giuliana Rancic) she wasn’t feeling well earlier on set. During taping Kelly’s health got the better of her when she fell off her chair and started having a seizure. Thankfully Melissa stepped in and a member of the audience, who was a medical professional stepped in to help her.
Glad to see people still know how to help each other in an emergency. My faith in humanity is (partially) restored.
Kelly is currently in the hospital having tests run. We hope for the best and that she bounces back healthy from this incident.
Go Kelly, we know you will rock it and come out fashionable!!!
Dear Lord. As if we don’t have enough celebrity gossip.
Haaaaay! I’m Craaaay!
Amanda Bynes is fueling the fire. Seem’s someone has joined the it’s not drugs its just mental instability train. With a recent move to NYC Bynes crazy that was limited to DUI’s, and club nights in Hollywood have escalated to eviction notices, wig changing and drugs that are illegal in the US.
That’s right. Let’s start at the beginning of some of the erratic behavior. First we had the ‘I’m retired, no I’m not’ stint. Then we moved on to MULTIPLE car crashes and a big fat DUI. Feeling judged Ms. Bynes decided to up and leave the land of LALA to go to NYC. Then she really fell down the rabbit hole.
Ms. Bynes moved into an Manhattan apartment where she frequently left her door not just unlocked (asking to be murdered in NYC is leaving your door unlocked) but wide open. There, her neighbors saw she had changed all the light bulbs to red. Her apartment was also constantly filled with smoke. If you say just cigarettes I say liar. Hard rugs always make you chain smoke if you are a smoker so my guess is she liked to ‘party’.
An eviction notice was to be served but she moved before the landlord had a chance.
Then, the star had kept mostly to her Twitter posting photos of her in every wig known to drag queens. Unfortunately she recently moved her crazy to a profile with US Weekly listing the 25 things you don’t (want) to know about her.
The 5’8 star says she has a goal to lose weight because gains it quickly. After all she is a HUGE 121 lbs.
Her goal is 100 lbs. Yeah, really. Wigs and car crashes may be ‘funny’, but the rest is out of control.
Ms. Bynes is on the health afflicted ‘Accutane’ for her skin, which is illegal in the US.
Not that many remember but this stuff was so damn bad for you it was YANKED of the shelves for causing birth defects, rectal bleeding, purple spots under the skin, jaundice, bloody stools, bone fracture and in more severe cases Crones Disease and ulcerative colitis.
It also has some side effects that include erratic behavior, depression and suicidal thoughts. You have to wonder if all this is hard drugs or may just be an illegal acne medicine.
Either way, I’ll take blackheads any day over looking like this.
Defined as a ‘horror’ and worse Rihanna’s fashion debut at London Fashion week is a terrible fail.
Don’t clap hunny. it only makes things worse. (Photos by WireImage/Getty)
‘The Daily Beast’ described her line as a ‘horror show’, and they were right!
According to the Huffpost, Rihanna was over an hour late starting. Making a crowd wait isn’t unheard of, but an hour?! Everything was badly simplistic. TV-esque, 90’s style, with one piece Baywatch Swimsuit & SJP LA Story, off-shoulder outfit with mini skirt. No flourish or trim and 97% see-through, gauzy material fit for a romance novel cover. She was off-season, presenting in London late and not scheduled as part of ‘Official Fashion Week’.
If I were Rihanna right now, I would be hiding somewhere in a bottle of rum.
There are too many reasons Rihanna’s line was a failure but let’s highlight a few.
Involvement; Rihanna’s direct involvement with River Island creating her line, was small at best. She sent texts and emails, choosing the material samples and giving the OK on design via phone. Nothing more. Despite her sad choices in design and material, the real credit to the line goes elsewhere.
Her line created, sewn and draped by designer Philip Green. Green created the Kate Moss line ($$$$) and brought TopShop from a zero to multi-million dollar hero of retail. Philip Green’s collaboration with rock stars and models have ALWAYS created money. However Rihanna is a a fail and a flake. Why?
Professionalism: River Island directly works with ASOS, Primark, Zara and of course Topshop, all of which Rihanna could have had a stake in with a £800,000 contract. Then she jeopardized that.
Two days before her London debut Rihanna was stupidly bold enough to post pictures of a marijuana bud putting her line and professionalism at question with River Island and the fashion community. Mostly, River Island, who very much said that her tweet of green could kill her contract and to keep things under wraps about her love affair with weed. In the fashion community we don’t care what you do, but don’t let everyone know about it.
Over all the line was simple, sad and see through, I can’t even wear it to bed. The blatant 90’s rip off wear is too much for any serious designer to stomach. Rihanna gets a D- for effort, and if possible an F- for the line.
