Kendall Jenner Channels “Black Swan” In New Swimwear Ads

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Glam! Back in August, Kendall Jenner did a photoshoot for Australian swimwear brand White Sands’ Spring/Summer 2012 ad campaign. The 16-year-old model shared the pics, which were inspired by the hit movie, Black Swan, on her blog. “This was my first professional swimwear shoot and I got to wear the most gorgeous bathing suits and cute coverups… what do you guys think of the pics?” she wrote.

According to Us Weekly, big sis Kim Kardashian gave a behind-the-scenes photo from the shoot, exclaiming, “How stunning does she look!?!? I couldn’t be more proud!”

Kendall is definitely making her name known in the fashion world, posing in past Forever 21 swimwear ads, as well as hitting the catwalk at Fashion Week in NYC last September, sporting Sherri Hill’s Spring 2012 collection.

Though the “White Swan” outfit reminds me of granny underwear a little bit, Kendall looks great! And the head pieces definitely add to both suits. Now, many people have spoken out about Kendall getting involved in modeling so young. But the kid has a knack for it! If you got it, you might as well flaunt it! Modeling seems to be a passion for her, so I say keep going!

Britney Spears with Smash and X-Factor?

So Smash has been a huge hit for TV/Musical fans, and so doesn’t it make sense that Britney Spears would eventually get on the show?

Yah…sure it does. According to recent rumors, Britney Spears is in talks to get on the show and producers are trying to find a spot for her to play a starring role. But, you know how rumors are…they can, well, be totally way off. The more likely story is that Spears wants on the show, but the Producers haven’t exactly found a fit for it yet.

And if I could throw in my two cents, I’m guessing that Spears is a little, tiny bit jealous of the stars of the show, Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty. I mean, couldn’t you just hear Katharine singing to Britney’s song, “Toxic”?

Okay, well, either way, here’s hoping you get your way on this one. We’ll keeping our finger’s crossed for you Britney.

In the mean time, what seems to be a more likely possibility for the pop star is to get on X-Factor as a judge. Now, recently, we expressed our own judge hopefuls, and although Madonna isn’t exactly getting chosen as a judge, it’s getting more likely that Britney Spears might get chosen (hey, they did kiss once…it’s close enough to having Madonna on the show, right?). And this time it isn’t Britney’s wishful thinking getting in her way.

According to a close friend, Britney Spears feels she will be a great fit for the show. Her friend explains, “She knows all about the ups and downs of pop fame. And with her schedule relatively clear she has the time to dedicate to a different project.”

All sarcasm aside, I do think that Britney may be a good fit. We all admire how far she’s come and how she has stuck with it. And even Simon Cowell seems suspiciously hush-hush about the entire thing.  Cowell explained, “While you’ve got The Voice and Idol competing with each other, I’ve learned one lesson: Keep your mouth shut. Don’t give it all away.”

And by the way, for you long time pop fans, can you imagine the pair – Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears once  considered each other’s rivals…being rivals again? I have to say it would work wonders for both of their careers.

So, what do you think….should Britney Spears be the next X-Factor judge?

Octavia Spencer Wants Her Boobs Done

Octavia Spencer was a-freakin-mazing in The Help and it has brought her some big time accolades. Not only has she won a Golden Globe and SAG award, she is up for Best Supporting Actress at Sunday’s Academy Awards.

Spencer recently spoke with Parade magazine about her incredible year, her early days in show business, and the big ticket gift she is giving herself (yes, she is getting her boobs done).

Check out the highlights below:

ON WHAT SHE DID BEFORE SHE BECAME FAMOUS:

“I was a production assistant. I saw what people who are full of themselves are like—another reason not to lose your humility! I have a mouth on me so I wasn’t the best PA.”

ON WHEN SHE HEARD HER NAME ANNOUNCED AS A WINNER:

”I’m shocked. It’s very, very humbling that people are singling out that performance.”

ON HER FAVORITE ENCOUNTER:

“I can’t say one experience is better than the other one but if I had to, I would say Steven Spielberg. I saw him quite a few times and he was always smiling. And I literally probably looked like a stalker. He and Oprah. They’re right there together. Oprah changed my dream of what I could be and Steven influenced every ounce of my artistry. I think he’s just the best ever. The fact that I got to do a movie for his studio and had conversations with him is like ‘Oh my God.’”

ON WHAT IT WAS LIKE GROWING UP IN A BIG FAMILY (BEING THE SIXTH OF SEVEN CHILDREN):

“I honestly wouldn’t know how it would be without that many siblings. I was a big reader and sometimes it was like I didn’t have brothers or sisters at all because I would be in a corner somewhere reading. We all have one or two we talk to all the time but we all are pretty close.”

ON HER SPLURGE GIFT:

“Well, I am going to get my boobs lifted. That’s going to be my first gift. I’m going to do that. I figured going into my forties I want my boobs where they were when I was 17.”

ON IF SHE IS GOING TO DO THE PROCEDURE PRE- OR POST-OSCARS:

“Oh definitely post because right after the Oscars I start a Diablo Cody movie. We’re taping out of the country for four months so I wouldn’t be back here until about August. So I would want to do this around November. Then that way I could just relax until January.”

Jordin Sparks Pays Tribute to Whitney Houston

Jordin Sparks took the stage at Essence magazine’s Black Women in Hollywood to honor her late “Sparkle” co-star and idol Whitney Houston.

Before Sparks performed one of the songs from their upcoming moving she told the audience, “She went from being this unreachable supernova pop star to my co-star to my friend.”

Of her tribute for Whitney, Sparks told Access Hollywood, “I’m being a part of the tribute for Whitney, I was already going to do it and sing a song from the movie… and then all the recent events happened and now I’m going to be singing a song that she actually sang but is also in the movie…It makes me very emotional. I looked up to her, I sang her songs, and then I met her face-to-face and she was so kind, she was so sweet. I am just very blessed to have got to know her for the short time that I did. She was incredible.”

Other big names that attended the event at the Beverly Hills Hotel included: Octavia Spencer, Kerry Washington, Paula Patton, Pam Grier and Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rimes, who were all honored for their work.

Check out highlights from the red carpet below!

Gerard Butler Was in Rehab?

Apparently so. Gerard Butler is in the process of getting OUT of rehab. It seems as if he has had some big fat problems with substance abuse as of late and is getting himself straight. Apparently he has been spending the last three weeks in the Betty Ford Clinic in California.

According to a report,

the star started struggling with pain medication as he battled to recover from injuries he suffered on the set of 2006 movie 300 and his problems were exacerbated after he was hurt in a surfing accident during filming of his latest project, Of Men and Mavericks.

And now TMZ is reporting that Butler is on his way out to be released!

Butler has had trouble in the past with booze but he gave it up when he was 27 (he is now the ripe age of 42).

Butler was previously quoted as saying, “It’s been years now and it’s like it never happened. I can’t remember drinking. When I stopped I would look at a beer and think how great it would be. I’d get this pang in my stomach to go back out and have fun, but then I’d remember that I used up that right – that I did a full life worth of drinking between 14 and 27. That I’d done enough drinking for half a dozen people. Now I have no connection with it.”

Well apparently he missed getting crunk ‘cuz he went at it again. Here’s hoping that rehab worked for Gerard!

Ray J’s Death Of the Cheating Man Book Sells Out Kim Kardashian

Ray J may not have gotten the sex tape credit as his partner (at the time) Kim Kardashian got (heck, she got FAMOUS off that damn thing), but now is his time, I guess. He’s waited long enough, right? Equal opportunity profit, people!

In a new book that he co-authors called the “Death of the Cheating Man”, Ray seems to sell out his relationship with his ex Kim, saying that she is a big fat cheater! Sure he admits that he liked to stray from time to time, but Kim is no saint.

Kim was first married to Damon Thomas and back in 2010, Damon told In Touch Weekly that Kim cheated on him. He said, “I saw my wife with another man [Jennifer Lopez’s ex, Cris Judd], wearing the clothes that we had just bought after her lipo. It was not something as a husband you ever wanted to see.” Not only that but Kardashian is said to have cheated with multiple men all while she kept Damon around to pay for plastic surgery and a lavish lifestyle.

And now Life & Style has some excerpts from Ray J’s co-written book, Death of the Cheating Man: What Every Woman Must Know About Men Who Stray. And um, yeah. Ray J recalls in the book that ”She let me know she wanted to get with me [while she was married]. She left her husband for me as soon as we started having sex.” Wow.

But even though she did some sweet (but kind of creepy) things for her man including putting toothpaste on his toothbrush, greeting him with hot towels AND giving him lingerie fashion shows at night, she was very clingy and jealous. Ray J added, “She wanted to know where I was at all times. She literally thought I was cheating with every girl I ran across.”

Not so surprising.

As for how Kim feels about the release of this book? A source said, ”Kim’s putting on a brave face, but she’s furious about Ray J cashing in on her. There’s so much that has gone wrong for her this year, he’s just another person trying to humiliate her.”

So ahem…who released the sex tape? Who profited off the tape? Mmmhmmm.

If the truth is humiliation then so be it. It’s the price of fame that Kim obviously wasn’t ready for. You can get the plastic surgery, the expensive cars and the other materialistic items that you so longed for, but you get the other side too!

Kate Walsh Goes Nude For Shape magazine Cover

Kate Walsh takes it all off (yeah, she goes nude) for Shape magazine’s March 2012 issue. And get this, the Private Practice star is 44 years old! Got damn!

So why in the world did she decide to pose nude now and not twenty years ago?

Walsh told the magazine, “I was terrified, but I really wanted to do a naked cover—especially with SHAPE, because the magazine is about loving yourself inside and out.”

So there you have it and with a body like that, why not? Werk it girl!

In the issue, Kate also shares personal details about herself, including her natural hair color (is she really a Ginger?), her thoughts on plastic surgery (what does she think about peeps like plastic surgery obsessed like Joan Rivers?), and what type of man really gets her goin’.

The issue is out on newsstands on Monday, February 27th.

Adele 21 Album on Top of BillBoard Charts For 21 Weeks

Adele is a chart-topping queen, beating out Whitney Houston’s album chart record (US) by becoming the very FIRST female artist to stay at number one for 21 weeks! And ironically she did it with her album titled “21″.

It was yesterday that the results came in citing Adele as breaking Houston’s record for The Bodyguard soundtrack just 11 days after Whitney passed away in a Los Angeles hotel suite on the eve of the Grammy Awards. And we all know that the Grammy awards was quite successful for Adele as she received SIX gold statues including the big one for Album of the Year.

In addition to the big Grammys Adele had THREE of her singles land in the top 10 all in the same week. Um, talk about music industry domination.

It just may be a tad difficult for the British singer to top this album. Don’t ya think?

Speaking of chart toppers, Katy Perry is also back at the top of the pop charts after becoming the 20th artist to debut at number one AND her song “Part of Me” is her seventh number one hit.

REPORT: Chris Brown Snatches a Fan’s Cell Phone at a Club

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sighhhh….Christopher, you just don’t learn. After a fan took a photo of him outside of the  South Beach club Cameo, Chris Brown allegedly snatched her phone, telling her, “Bitch, you ain’t gonna put that on no website.”

According to NBC, Christal Spann, a 24-year-old Miami woman, told police that she was inside Cameo early Sunday morning when she saw Chris and rapper Tyga leaving the nightclub through a side door. She and her fans followed the artists outside, and Spann took a picture of him with her iPhone while he was sitting in his car. After snatching the phone, he rolled up his window, and drove off!

Police responded at 4:43 a.m. They listed the offense as a “robbery by sudden snatching,” and said the incident would be further investigated.

Police said the state attorney’s office is preparing the arrest warrant for Chris. Tyga wasn’t implicated, they said. The state attorney’s office wouldn’t comment on the case, and Chris couldn’t be reached for comment.

Really Chris? Really? If this is really true, you aren’t helping yourself at all. People are already freaking out over you reuniting with Rihanna on your remixes for “Birthday Cake” and “Turn Up The Music.” And now, you snatch some girl’s phone, and drive off with it? I love you Chris, but you got to get your anger IN CHECK.

FIRST LOOK: Katy Perry Joins Cast of Raising Hope As Prison guard

Katy Perry is making yet another television appearance with a gig on Raising Hope as a goofy looking prison guard.

Perry’s episode will air on March 6th on FOX and we are hearing that Katy’s best friend Raising Hope star Shannon Woodward got her the gig.

Katy released the following statement about her acting gig we’ll all get to see, “Shannon Woodward is my best friend. A couple weeks ago, I was home, just toasting up a frozen chicken fillet when she called me up and asked if I wanted to do something ‘fun’ for a change and try out a guest role on her TV show. I thought, ‘Sure, I have nothing else to do, and I like chillin’ with my best friend.’ “Greg was nice, but I hope he’s not secretly sabotaging my potential future career by typecasting me in the role of just a looker, so that I would never be able to play anything more challenging.”

The executive producer Garcia of the show released the following statement about Katy’s part on the show, “Shannon Woodward told me that her friend Katy was interested in doing an episode and I thought, ‘Why not? Let’s do your friend Katy a favor.’ Then she came in and did a terrific job. She was hilarious. And now people are telling me that Katy is also a singer. I sincerely hope that her appearance on the show helps her get her singing career off the ground. It’s a tough business.”

Don’t you just love that guidostache that is pasted on Katy’s upper lip? HOT.
