The Art Of Elysium Develops L’Wren Scott Designer Award

In memoriam. The Art of Elysium, an organization that brings the love and beauty of the arts to hospitalized kids, has created an award in honor of late designer L’Wren Scott.

The Art of Elysium also honors a child by the name of Amber, who participated in the organization’s fashion workshops and had a brain tumor. The award, officially known as the L’Wren Scott Amber Award, will honor upcoming fashion designers.

L’Wren sadly committed suicide on March 17. According to various reports, her will left her $8 million Manhattan condo and her other personal possessions to her boyfriend, Rolling Stones Mick Jagger. He and her family are reportedly splitting her ashes. 

It was very nice of the Art of Elysium to create this award in both L’Wren and Amber’s honor. No word on when the first award will be given (it’s probably much too soon to consider that). However, hopefully it brings to light more emerging designers, and gives them their chance to shine in the fashion industry. Prayers and thoughts continue to go to L’Wren’s loved ones.

Scarlett Johansson Talks Double Standards For Men, Family and Making That Money!

scarjo

Newly announced pregnant mama-to-be Scarlett Johansson covers WSJ magazine and well..she is glowing! I’ll give her that! In the magazine, ScarJo’s interview is all about family, double standards for men and why she decided to take roles in big blockbusters.

On wanting a family and a career: “It seems so stressful to not be able to spend time with your family because you’re constantly chasing the tail of your own success. There must exist a world in which I can balance those things, be able to raise a family and still make a film a year, or work on my own, develop things, do theatre. I want to be able to have it all. Selfishly.”

On double standards for men: “With [male actors] it just doesn’t happen that way. You can be every woman’s fantasy, and nobody thinks twice about the fact that you have eight kids or whatever.”

On taking roles in big blockbusters: “I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it. I wanted to stretch myself physically, out of my comfort zone, and still succeed. I’m probably like most actors. We have huge egos, and you want to know you can be successful, no matter what. I don’t to be pigeonholed in one genre or budget or whatever.”

In other words, it’s all about the money! And hey, I don’t blame her. Get it, girl!

Kanye West Set To Call Off Wedding Because Kim Had Sparks With Chris Brown?

chrisbrown

We all know Kanye West can be a diva in his own right and I can totally see him freaking out over anyone his wife-to-be Kim Kardashian has been with. Well apparently there is a rumor going around that Kim once had stars in her eyes for bad boy Chris Brown.

Radaronline.com is reporting that Yeezy

is “so upset he might even consider calling off the wedding if she ever speaks to Brown again, according to one source!

“Even though the encounter between Kim and Chris happened long before Kanye came on the scene, being Kanye, he’s still intensely jealous,” a Kardashian insider told Radar.

West was shocked to learn that “Kim and Chris, both unattached at the time, met up to talk about promotional stuff and hear what he had in mind in terms of merchandising and licensing for his new record.

“There were definite sparks, but she insisted to Kanye that nothing happened between them.

“That hasn’t stopped Kanye from having a major jealous meltdown,” the source added.

Well that certainly doesn’t mean that Kim gave it up to Brown. But we all know how Kim is and how she operates so anything is possible. So who knows what really happened! The truth of the matter is, the past is the past and now that she has a solid bank account because of her association with West, she’s good. Sad part is, if West is freaking out now about this, this marriage isn’t going to last and it hasn’t even happened yet!

On a lighter note, can you imagine a Breezy, West, Kardashian love triangle?!! You know that would NOT end well.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin Separate

Sadly, it’s another celebrity couple calling it quits! After 10 years of marriage, actress Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay‘s Chris Martin have decided to separate.

The couple announced the news on Gwyneth’s  lifestyle website GOOP, with a post titled “Conscious Uncoupling”.  “It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate,” they stated. “We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate.”

“We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been,” they continued. “We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner.”

The couple had just celebrated 10 years this past December. They have two children: daughter Apple, 9, and son Moses, 7.

Sad to see them splitting up, but at least they are separating on good terms, and will co-parent their children in a dignified manner. Not everyone does. Wishing them the best in the future!

ciara

Ciara is getting ready for her little baby to arrive. But first, before the big arrival, her famous friends put on an over-the-top baby shower for her in her honor. Over the weekend in Beverly Hills, Kim Kardashian, LaLa Vasquez and Kris Jenner showed up to celebrate the yet-to-be born baby and baby mama of rapper Future.

Look at that adorable dress! I think Ciara looks amazing as a pregnant lady.

REPORT: Mila Kunis Pregnant with Ashton Kutcher’s Baby!

Looks like congratulations are in order! Mila Kunis is reportedly pregnant with her first child with boyfriend Ashton Kutcher!

This news comes almost a month after reports came out that the actress was engaged to Ashton.  Mila was pictured last month rocking a huge diamond ring while she was out shopping with her mom in L.A., confirming reports. She and Ashton, known for their stint together on That ’70s Show, first went public with their relationship in spring 2011.

This will be the first child for Ashton as well, who finalized his divorce from Demi Moore back in November.

According to E!, Mila was even recently spotted attending a prenatal yoga class in Hollywood. And just yesterday, the couple was seen on the Kiss Cam at the Pistons-Clippers game! See them smooching below!

Neither of them have officially made an announcement about this yet. If the news is true, and I really think it is, congrats to them and their families!

Kristin Cavallari From No Vaccinations to Pregnancy Sex, Girlfriend Won’t Quit Talking

MAGIC Market Week - Day 1

I used to adore Kristin Cavallari, but the problem recently has been her opening her mouth and spewing, spewing and spewing words.

It all started out with her anti-vaccination rant where she announced that she hasn’t vaccinated her 19 month old son Camden and doesn’t plan on it either. She said, “You know, at the end of the day, I’m just a mom. There are very scary statistics out there regarding what is in vaccines and what they cause — asthma, allergies, ear infections, all kinds of things. We feel like we are making the best decision for our kids.” She added, “There is a pediatric group called Homestead, or Home First? Pregnancy brain, I’ve got it confused. They’ve never vaccinated any of their children and they haven’t had one case of autism. And now, one in 88 boys is autistic, which is a really scary statistic. … The vaccinations have changed over the years, there’s more mercury.”

I understand that she doesn’t want to vaccinate her child and while I feel that is ignorant, it’s her business, her opinion and her family. But NOW she is talking about hitting the skins with her husband while she is pregnant and it is kind of a little bit too much information if you ask me especially in the way that she speaks about it.

In an interview with Fit Pregnancy, Kristin opens up about pregnancy sex and she talks about it like her husband is 12 years old and gets creeped out by the word “vagina” or “penis”.

Cavallari said, “Sex is funny when you’re pregnant. Guys get weird about it. I’m like, ‘Oh Jay, the baby’s kicking!’ And he’s like, not wanting to know about it. It’s important for women to realize — if your guy is a little weirded out but isn’t good at expressing that, it can be isolating.”

Girl, really?!!!

Anna Wintour Responds To KimYe Vogue Cover Backlash

anna

Let’s just say there has been a lot of harsh criticism for the Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Vogue cover that was recently revealed. If you weren’t on Twitter last night, you missed the big fat slams and the whole backlash over the selection of these two for the cover of Vogue.

But Editor Anna Wintour knew it was going to happen so her editor’s letter explained WHY she chose these two fame lovers to photograph AND put on the cover.

She wrote, “Part of the pleasure of editing ‘Vogue,’ one that lies in a long tradition of this magazine, is being able to feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it looks and influences the way we see it. I think we can all agree on the fact that that role is currently being played by Kim and Kanye to a T. (Or perhaps that should be to a K?)”

She went on to say, “As for the cover, my opinion is that it is both charming and touching, and it was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it; you may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancee on Vogue‘s cover. He did nothing of the sort. The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn’t true. There’s barely a strand of the modern media that the Kardashian Wests haven’t been able to master, and for good reason: Kanye is an amazing performer and cultural provocateur, while Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world’s spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that.”

She can say what she wants about these two, but you know what? Vogue, in my opinion, has been all about classiness and high fashion and Anna Wintour has stooped down to a new low. Kanye HAD TO HAVE paid a pretty penny for this shoot.

And Annie Liebovitz, WHY?!!!, just WHY!!!!???

M Rod and Cara Delevingne Getting SERIOUS, Marriage Next?

mrod

Michelle Rodriguez and Cara Delevingne just can’t get enough of each other. And all along, I thought this was just a little fling that would last a hot minute. But apparently these two are inseparable.

Rumors are swirling that the pair is planning a big trip to music fest Coachella which is set to take place in California in mid-April.

A source is is saying that the couple is getting “serious”. “They’ve already been away as a couple to Thailand and now want to go to their first festival together,” the insider told The Sun. “Cara is a big festival-goer and this is a dry run for Glastonbury. She loves the Somerset event and wants to take Michelle this year to experience it too.”

It may have only been a few months of togetherness for these two, but don’t be surprised if a big fat ring shows on one of their fingers soon…even if for show!

Sure they do look good together, but for some reason I just don’t see this ending well. These two are BOTH hard partiers and a tad on the cray cray side.

Perfect for each other????

YE DID IT: Kanye Gets Baby Mama Kim Kardashian On Cover Of Vogue

kimkanyevoguecover

Check out this Kim and Kanye Vogue cover, y’all.

Peeps were saying she’d never make it but Kim Kardashian has landed the cover of Vogue magazine…with the help of Yeezus, of course. And he is also on the cover, but that is besides the point. That’s right, Kanye has made it happen. He managed to get the porn/reality show star on one of the most prestigious magazine covers in the world. VOGUE. Yeah, VOGUE! WTF, Anna Wintour!

Welp so much for everyone’s rant about how she will never be on the cover because she is a reality star and porn star. See guys, it helps to give it up to a rap superstar and trap him for life. Dreams do come true!

But that’s not all…baby North got her own shots in the magazine as well!

This is all kind of crazy to me. All I can ask right now is WHY?!!!! How much money did Kanye pay to get on this cover?

CELEB SPOTTING: Beyoncé Visits Anne Frank House in Amsterdam

Every place she goes on The Mrs. Carter World Tour, Beyoncé  makes sure that she takes time out to experience the culture of the city she’s touring in! Amsterdam was no different as she and husband Jay-Z visited the Anne Frank House,  hours after Bey’s performance at the city’s Ziggo Dome.

According to the museum’s Facebook page, they spent “more than an hour inside and very impressed by their visit to the hiding place of Anne Frank.” The museum also posted a shot of the singer writing a message in the guestbook.

Beyoncé, notoriously known for sharing her life through pics on Instagram, shared some shots on the social media site too!

So awesome! I love these pictures. Needless to say Anne Frank is a huge figure in world history, and it’s cool that Bey and Jay took some time out to visit. Hopefully, one day in my travels, I’ll get to go there too!

Madonna Releases Promo Video for MDNA Skin Care Line

Time to get pretty! Madonna has officially released a video promoting her MDNA skin care line!

In the black-and-white video, Madonna says, “Having good skin is important to me but so are other things.” She continues without much explanation about what the line actually has: “I’ve spent hours on it. Months on it. Years on it. MDNA. Transformation. Enigmatic. Substance. Connection. Revolution. Spirit. Intuition. Magic. Mystical. Ambition. Infinity. Immortal.”

The three-part skin care line created with MTG beauty company consists of a Chrome Clay Mask, Skin Rejuvinator, and The Serum. Too bad we’ll never see it in the States! Unfortunately for everyone, the line is only being sold in Japan! After all this?! You can still check out the video for MDNA below!

The video is a little weird, but I can’t say Madonna doesn’t look amazing in it! I don’t think it’s because of her MDNA line, but regardless, she looks HOT!
