Katy Perry Pole Dances at Grammys 2014 (VIDEO)

katy-perry

Katy Perry’s Grammys 2014 performance pretty much blew my mind. The Roar singer kept the audience entertained with a busy stage and surprisingly live vocals!

Katy incorporated so many elements into her Dark Horse performance with rapper Juicy J including witchcraft, a crystal ball, a fire, a pole dance and yes, even a dark horse.

It starts out with Perry appearing as a witch inside a crystal ball and then she appears in a dark wonderland that includes creatures of the night dancing around on stage. She then was sporting a red, light up bustier while using a broom as a stripper pole. Juicy J came out to join Perry on stage, appropriately wearing a black suit. Towards the end of the performance, the set filled with flames and it appeared as if Perry was burned at the stake. It was pretty sweet.

Check out Katy Perry’s Grammys 2014 performance of Dark Horse below.

Jennifer Lopez Says She Loves A Chaotic Relationship In New Glamour Interview

jennifer-lopez

Jennifer Lopez is still working it and looking good while doing it. The Puerto Rican princess is now 44 and covering the March issue of Glamour, being as fabulous as ever.

In the new issue of the magazine, Jenny from the Block talks about how she’s been able to stay in shape and it doesn’t involve eating a lot of ice cream. She also talked about her love life briefly as well.

Check out highlights from the interview below:

On Not Being Able To Eat A Pint Of Ice Cream:

“I’m not one to over-indulge. It doesn’t make me feel good. Some find it comforting to sit down and eat a whole pint of Häagen-Dazs, but that would make me throw up.”

On Her Love Life:

“I want a bit of chaos, but I also want safety and order. It’s taken me a long time, but if something doesn’t feel right, I won’t go along with it any more.”

So the question is, how long will she and Casper Smart last? For some reason, I do not see it lasting forever. I mean, really. Do you? He seems like an immature little boy who is just really enjoying being taken care of.

And she? Well, we all know she loves company.

You’ll Never Guess What Kendrick Lamar Thinks Of Jay-Z!

kendrick-lamar

Kendrick Lamar is ready for his close up and he gets just that with a life long dream come true…his face on the cover of JET magazine.

Via our friends at JET:

Award season is in full swing. In celebration of the new direction, JET magazine breaks with tradition to feature the young, talented and critically acclaimed rap artist Kendrick Lamar — who has seven Grammy nominations for his latest album Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City — on the cover for the Black History issue.

“I always seen [JET magazine] every time I walked into the house,” said Lamar. “It was always there. So I already knew that it had to hold some type of weight. Being a young cat, I had to know, since this magazine is right here all the time, it must be a powerful magazine. So it’s a privilege just to be a part of it, and for Black History Month, it’s a beautiful thing.”

The artist, renowned for delivering thought-provoking lyrics that center around social issues, shares the ways in which his passionate storytelling is impacting lives. In JET magazine’s exclusive interview, the hip-hop star reveals everything from his social responsibility to why the music industry needs more than good hooks and catchy tracks.

“Hip-hop plays a huge part in Black history,” says Lamar. “It’s bigger than music. Entertainers are actually leading a generation today as role models, whether they want to or not.”

Acknowledging that his fans are deeply influenced by what he says, Lamar also discusses being conscious of the messages he delivers in his music.

“The songs aren’t for me,” he says. “They are for that person who needs to hear them. People who live their lives to this music. So I take it a little further than just coming up with a clever line.”

Additionally, the rapper opens up about the array of Black men — including iconic figures such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and those closer to home, such as his father — who molded his character.

“My earliest role model is my father, then my uncles Lil Man and Bobby,” Lamar shared. “These are the cats who I felt handled their business and took care of their family.”

He also talks about how hip-hop’s business savvy moguls have chiseled his ambition.

“People forget that Jay Z is from the projects – but that inspires me,” continued Lamar. “If this guy can go from the streets to the corporate world, that lets me know I’m open for anything.”

You can check out the entire article in the February 17th issue of JET magazine, on newsstands January 27th.

Faith Evans on Still Being Close With Diddy, Last Time She Saw Whitney Houston, On Getting Married Again & More

faith-evans

Faith Evans recently stopped by the Bethenny Frankel show and in case you were wondering…yes, she still hangs with Diddy, aka Puffy Daddy and yes, she has moved on from Biggy. Check out highlights from her interview with Bethenny Frankel below.

ON BEING CLOSE WITH DIDDY:

Bethenny: Well you really kind of are you know like hip-hip/r&b royalty. I mean you’ve been around for a while and you’ve…
Faith: Thanks Bethenny.
Bethenny: I mean you were married to Notorious BIG, who was respected and regarded like the Frank Sinatra of hip-hop music. I mean what a ride.
Faith: It was definitely a ride and I must say that despite all the craziness and you know everyone’s careers and lives didn’t end up how they thought it would, it was a lot of fun. You know in the beginning of my career being at Bad Boy especially that was like certainly a time in my life and career that I will never forget.
Bethenny: And Bad Boy, Puffy gave you your start, now P-Diddy.
Faith: Yes.
Bethenny: Well how do you think of him? P-Diddy
Faith: I still call him Puff.
Bethenny: You still call him Puff?
Faith: Mmmm hmmm
Bethenny: So he gave you your start and you are still great friends?
Faith: Yeah I actually saw him the other night. I stopped by a studio session he was at to tell him that I wanted him to come to my show next week at the House of Blues. Yea, we keep in touch. He sends my kids Christmas gifts every year and you know, we don’t talk all the time but the line of communication is open. You know, we text and email and he invites me to his events and vice versa.
Bethenny: He and I have the same birthday and we are both in the liquor business.
Faith: Oh yeah?
Bethenny: Yeah I feel like we have a couple of things in common
Faith: Oh wow! You know how to party like him too?
Bethenny: I could party pretty nicely.
Faith: Oh he knows how to party.
Bethenny: Yea I mean I don’t know how he knows how to party but for a Skinnygirl I could party, you know?

ON THE LAST TIME SHE SAW WHITNEY HOUSTON ALIVE:

Bethenny: So in your life, I’m sitting here, you’re a young woman and you’ve experienced some great loss. Two of the most iconic people in music history who you were close with…to experience that kind of loss, how do you deal with that? How do you make sense of that? Do you go to religion, do you get angry?

Faith: Oh wow, I mean religion isn’t something, or my spirituality is definitely not something I go to, it’s always a part of my life. That’s definitely what kept me because it was difficult. I think getting through losing a husband, which that was the first time I lost someone in my life that was that close to me. So having had to go through that and all the public scrutiny and craziness that came with that, losing Whitney was a little bit different because you know it’s different because it was my husband and my friend but it was definitely a blow. Because when I saw her a couple of nights before she passed we hadn’t seen each other but we had been trying to hook-up and phone tagging and emailing and she was looking for me the entire night and when she finally caught me before I went on stage she just grabbed me so hard and was like “I love you so much” and I was like “I love you too, I’ve been looking for you!” and it just felt good to just see her and just the feeling we had. I mean we were like, it wasn’t an industry thing and we didn’t hang out everyday but when we did it was, I’m calling you, I’m coming around the corner and sit in the back yard and drink some wine and we’re just gonna kick it like two Jersey girls. Our daughters are the same age and they kind of grew up having a friendship so, she was very special.

faith-evans1

ON IF SHE IS IN LOVE AND WHETHER SHE WILL MARRY AGAIN:

Bethenny: Now are you in a relationship now?

Faith: Am I in a relationship?

Bethenny: Is there anybody special?

Faith: Well, well yes! See my friends always tease me because cause since I’ve been divorced, I’ve been divorced for two years, and they always you know, would kind of tease like well we know you’re not really gonna date anybody. They call me granny because I don’t really go out a whole lot and I get up to workout at 5am so I’m bed by like 8:30 so they’re like oh God granny’s not gonna go. But they always tease me about me like not probably really being open to really dating but because that word just to means like that you got a gang of people coming in and out of your life, you know like you’re seeing multiple people, and I’m not, that’s just not me. I’m very careful about who I bring into my private space in that sense. Especially in a romantic sense because I have children

Bethenny: Exactly

Faith: I have to really think about it. I don’t waste my time spending time to see oh, can I go out with him a few times to see if I like him. I don’t wanna just see…if he turned me off already then…

Bethenny: Well it’s funny that you say that because we are talking later on a panel about that. About most women say that, I think it was that most men say that after three dates, they know if they are falling in love with someone. Would you agree with that?

Faith: Well I can’t say that I would put that number on it but it’s happened to me in different ways. I mean when me and Big met, although people say that we were married in 9 days, we actually married less than two months after we met each other. But very early on within the first couple of weeks we definitely felt like we were in love with one another. And I love good energy and if you know, I feel like the connection with him was just the fact that he was a good person.

Bethenny: Do you think that you will ever get married again? I know you believe in love but do you believe in marriage?

Faith: I don’t know, there was a time when that was definitely a part of my big picture…being married and growing old with someone. And I wouldn’t say no but I’m certainly not looking for it. I think if it comes and God says hey this is you know, I think that I’ll feel that, I’ll say hey, this is God telling me that I need to be with this person. But I don’t think marriage necessarily, you know, means that that makes it a meaningful relationship. So just being married with a ring and a paper doesn’t necessarily solidify the closeness or the bond that you guys have.

Bethenny: I agree with you, nor does it mean that you are going to spend the rest of your life with someone, unfortunately.
Faith: Not at all.

eniko-parrish

Meet Eniko Parrish, Kevin Hart’s girlfriend! This girl may have been by her man’s side for a few years and she may have earned herself a big bling for hanging around. Okay, okay. I’m sure she is in love too…or at least we hope because it sounds as if Kevin is!

In a recent interview Hart said, “Believe it or not, I am very much a silly romantic. My girl’s in love with me, not only because I’m funny, but because I’m a nice charming guy. I know how to do things that separate myself. For Valentine’s Day its not always about spending money. It’s about making it a memorable day. For me, I might dance for my lady this year. I’ve been in the gym, my body’s looking amazing. So I’m thinking about giving my lady a little Chippendale moment. Music, just us and getting the snap off pants with the thong with the elephant trunk on it.”

And Parrish may be the one to share the rest of his life with. As for marriage…“It’s definitely in my future. I got a good one. “I wish I could sit up here and lie and say that it hasn’t been talked about and ‘Oh my God there’s no way’ but we’ve got some years in. We’re going on almost five years pretty soon. She’s definitely proven herself, she’s there for me. I know that she loves me. She’s stepped up and taken a role in my life as well as my kids’ its a beautiful thing. So it’s something that definitely in talks.”

Well it is good to see Hart find love again after his first failed marriage. Hopefully this one works out for him!

Keep doing what you are doing Eniko Parrish! You are making Kevin Hart a happy man.

Chantel Jeffries: Justin Bieber’s Girlfriend And Partner In Crime

chantel-jeffries

Ladies and gents, meet Chantel Jeffries, Justin Bieber’s girlfriend and other person who got arrested in Justin Bieber’s arrest that went down last night in Miami (while drag racing and acting like a fool).

Rumors have been circulating that the Biebs was not alone in his drag racing, DUI adventure last night and we finally know that it was a female friend who was sitting passenger during the stupidity that came out of last night’s escapades.

And after doing a little bit of checking, Miss Jeffries is no stranger to getting into trouble with the law. So as the saying goes, “you are who you hang with” definitely holds true in this case.

Chantel is a 21 year old model (although I’ve never heard of her?) who hails from Jacksonville, North Carolina. While she looks like the sweet, innocent seductress, it is apparent (according to her rap sheet) that she is a troublemaker…with her biggest offense including a misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon. Records reveal that she stabbed another woman in the left forearm “during a physical altercation”. Yeah, classy!

In addition, Jeffries also enjoys the need for speed. She also got arrested for doing 92 mph in a 70 mph zone, reports The Daily Mail.

On her Twitter biography blurb, she describes herself as a “student, eyebrow connoisseur, animal lover, and deep thinker.” She’s a deep thinker alright!

For the record, she has dated Diddy’s son Justin Combs, Philadelphia Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson, and yes even Bieber’s rapper troublemaker friend Lil Twist.

So is Chantel Jeffries and Justin Bieber an item or is this just a fun little fling going on to make Selena jealous? At any rate, this is yet another troublemaker from THAT crowd.

Justin Bieber Arrested on Drag Racing and DUI Charges

Surprise, surprise. Justin Bieber has had another run in with the law.

The singer was arrested early Thursday morning for drag racing and a DUI in Miami Beach. Justin was riding in a rented yellow Lamborghini at the time.

He was officially booked on charges of driving under the influence, driving with an expired license and resisting arrest “without violence”, according to police records. After his arrest, Justin apparently cursed out an officer, and admitted to having beer, pot and prescription drugs in his system, Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez told the Miami Herald.

After a short stint in the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center, Justin appeared before a judge for a bond hearing and bail was set at $2,500.

Justin….let’s have a little heart to heart. I seriously feel like Tyra Banks when she went off on that girl on America’s Next Top Model. I am, unashamedly, a little bit of a Belieber. So, as someone who has gotten weird stares for blasting “One Less Lonely Girl” in my car, I can say all this. GET. YOUR. LIFE. TOGETHER. If you keep going at the rate you’re going, you’re going to end up in a place that you sure as hell can’t handle. You were secluded in that jail cell, but let somebody actually get their hands on you!  This isn’t about your fans or your career. This is about you. You might need some serious rehab time, or, at least, some time alone, away from the cameras and the fame, to focus on getting yourself in a better place. Stop acting like a fool just because you’re legal and have money! Get some people on your team that aren’t afraid to sit you down and tell you off when you’re wrong! All of this was never cute. It was never funny. I can just see the comments now, but I actually believe you have talent, and you’re blowing it! Get it together.

Jennifer Hudson Spices Things Up in “I Can’t Describe” Music Video!

Jennifer Hudson has officially released her music video for her newest single, “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel)!” The song, which features rapper T.I., has become quite a hit for her!

This is definitely Jennifer’s sexiest video yet! In the video, she confidently flaunts her body and really struts her stuff, and kills it (Weight Watchers has helped her lose the weight and keep it off!). I’m liking her pixie cut more and more too! Check out “I Can’t Describe” below!

“I Can’t Describe” is the precursor to her third album, which is supposedly coming out some time in the spring. “Some of the songs have a nice old school swag to them, but I think people will be very pleasantly surprised with this album ’cause it’s about the mood and the groove and real music,” she told Yahoo! Music of her new project. Jennifer has been in the studio with TimbalandPharrell, and R. Kelly, so it should be a good album!

Cornelius Clay Is Kim Kardashian’s Booty Tailor

cornelius-clay

Yes, Kim Kardashian has a booty tailor that she pays to keep her booty intact on the daily. Does this really surprise you? Ladies and gentleman, meet Cornelius Clay.

If the name sounds a bit familiar and you are a Kanye West fan, you probably know exactly who this dude is. Kanye so inspired Cornelius that he decided to drop out of Yale to work for Kanye as a stylist. Smart, right? And now, he is getting paid a whopping $5,000 a DAY to alter Kim’s jeans for her.

Apparently the jeans that she wears to cover her derriere just right are altered to fit because she has a hard time finding jeans that fit her skinny waist and big back end. So this Cornelius character gets paid to fix the jeans to fit her body and he is at her beck and call DAILY!

According to Grazia, “It means Kim can buy jeans, have them altered and be photographed in them within a matter of hours. Kim has a size 4 waist and size 10 bottom, so she often has to buy a size up and have jeans taken in at the waist for a snug fit. She’s only 5ft 2in, so they’re often taken up a few inches, too.”

I guess I have a HARD time believing that is a size 10 behind, but maybe my eyes are deceiving me. At any rate, to know how to sew and take in jeans is all I would need to make $5,000 a day I would be all in. But unfortunately this is a Kardashian we are talking about here and all the money in the world to look at that butt and examine it all day would not work for me. No booty stuffing for me! Let’s just leave that to Cornelius Clay!

Selena Gomez Says She and Lorde Don’t Get Along And She Won’t Change For A Guy!

selena-gomez

Selena Gomez appears on the cover of Seventeen’s first-ever March 2014 Power issue (on stands February 4th). The issue, which also celebrates Seventeen’s 70th anniversary, features a list of Hollywood’s most powerful girls 21 and under and Selena is ranked #1 on the list.

In her interview with Seventeen, Gomez discusses what it’s like to feel powerful, the importance of her fans, how she won’t change for a guy and more.

Via our friends at Seventeen

On feeling powerful:
“This year is when I really started feeling powerful. I had always been the underdog secretly. I was on Disney when it was Miley [Cyrus], the Jonas Brothers, and Demi [Lovato]. I questioned the way I looked, acted, sang, and wrote. Then I turned 20, went through a really bad breakup, and realized I needed to have ‘Come & Get It’ be amazing. I wanted it all to be me. I’m glad it’s taken me this long to get where I am because now I am ready for it.”

On her fans:
“I don’t feel like I can do enough for my fans. I work a lot, I work hard, and I get tired. But when you walk onstage and see these people who wait hours outside just to see you, it’s the greatest thing in the world.”

On Lorde:
“I recently did an interview and they asked me who I thought was up-and-coming and making a difference. I said, ‘She doesn’t like me, but Lorde.’ I’m going to support her whether she likes me or not because I think she’s doing great things. Some day I will see her and we’ll be cool.”

On never changing for a guy:
“I actually talked to Katy Perry about guys who are intimidated by strong girls. I haven’t found someone yet who could understand my lifestyle, support it, love me through it, and not be threatened by it. It’s hard. I do think I might scare some guys, because I’m like, ‘I want to change the world! I have dreams! What do you want to do?’ But I only know how to be me.”

Instagram Star Jen Selter Is Next Jillian Michaels, Inks BIG Fitness Deal

She’s earned over two million instagram followers because of her sexy body photos and now Jen Selter is going to make some bucks off her fit body, particularly her booty shots.

Now while she is known as a fit-spiration, Selter is dedicated to being a motivator to others to achieve their fitness goals. And I suppose for some, she serves as some eye candy as well.

So what do we know about the bootylicious Instagram star?

Well, Jen Selter is 20 years old and hails from New York City. She just signed with The Legacy Agency, which represents baseball stars Carl Crawford and ­Johan Santana, NFL players Osi Umenyiora and Reggie Bush and sports broadcasters Troy Aikman and Dan Hicks.

Even though Selter does not have any FORMAL fitness training, The Legacy Agency said, “We believe she can be the next Jillian Michaels.”

They added, “Jillian didn’t get to where she is until her mid-30s. Jen’s going to grow as a person, as a fitness expert, in these next years. She’s here for the long term.” True, but is she marketable? Is she likeable? That is the real question.

And if you are thinking that Selter may have just purchased those followers, think again. When Selter posts photos of herself, they get seen (and likes with as many 80,000 PER PICTURE) and so does she when she heads to the gym.

“I’m recognized wherever I am,’ Selter said. ‘I don’t really go to public gyms anymore just because it is a whole big scene when I’m there. I don’t like being watched.”

Well, tough teety Jen Selter. You are being watched…by MILLIONS! Congrats, girl!

Ke$ha Sends Message From Rehab

She may be in rehab trying to get better, but Kesha wanted to make sure she got a message out to all of her fans.

kesha

The pop star last tweeted on New Year’s Day, but just on Tuesday the pop star supposedly had someone who calls him or herself as Kesha’s friend write a heartfelt message on the pop star’s Twitter account.

Kesha is currently receiving treatment for an eating disorder at a facility near Chicago, with her mom saying Ke$ha thought about killing herself over her body issues.

Here’s hoping that she is on the path to recovery! From what it sounds like from her tweets, she is still a ball of energy.

Get well, girl!
