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.


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!

This Is What Britney Spears’ Ex Fiance Looks Like Now…


We all know Britney Spears is doing alright after her split with her longtime love and agent Jason Trawick. Hey, the girl already has a new man in her life Mr. David Lucado AND a Vegas gig that pays her over $300k per show. I think she is doing okay.

So what has Mr. Jason Trawick been doing now that he is free from Britney and her popstar life?

Rocking a new belly and eating pizza and Popeye’s, yo! But hey, you can’t hate on someone who looks happy!

I have noticed, this seems to be a common trend among men who have dated Britney Spears.


Just throwing that out there, David Lucado.

Kevin Hart & Ice Cube’s “Ride Along” Breaks January and MLK Weekend Records

Kevin Hart and Ice Cube together brought the laughs and broke some records! Their movie “Ride Along” set the box office record for the biggest weekend opening in January history, grossing over $41 million. Over the MLK holiday weekend, the film is projected to bring in  $47.8 million, which will break another record for biggest MLK weekend opening ever!

The action-comedy has also received an “A” rating from audiences via CinemaScore. Though the movie just opened, there’s already supposedly a sequel in the works, that will go into production possibly in a few months!

This isn’t the last of Kevin in movies. In fact, things are only heating up! His romantic comedy About Last Night will hit theatres February 14 and Think Like a Man Too will debut this summer. In the midst of all of this success, the comedian is still very humble. He recently told The Mercury:

I still don’t know if I made it. I think the minute I think about it, is the minute I’ll go crazy. I don’t like addressing it. This is all a dream to me. That’s why I don’t go to sleep. I’m afraid if I close my eyes, when I wake up, this (film career) will be over. So I just stay up all the time.”

VIP readers, make sure you enter for your chance at a nice “Ride Along” prize pack …not too much time left!

Victoria Beckham Shuts Down Any Future Spice Girls Reunions

Victoria Beckham is moving forward from the past, and not looking back! In an interview with Vanity Fair Italy and Spain, Victoria is officially putting Posh Spice and the rest of the Spice Girls behind her, ruling out participating in any future reunions.

“I won’t ever do it again. The Olympics was an incredible honor. I was so proud to do it; proud to be British,” she said of her performance with her old group at the London 2012 Olympics. ‘That was a perfect time to say, ‘That’s great. Thank you to everybody, but no more. Sometimes you’ve got to know when it’s time to leave the party.’

Victoria added that her focus is fashion more so music, but knows that her past singing and present career in fashion are interconnected. ‘The Spice Girls were successful because we celebrated women. That’s why I do what I do today,” she stated.

The mother of four also opened up about how hard it was to watch her husband David play in his last soccer game before retiring last May. “It was very emotional. We were so proud. He couldn’t have given more to the sport than he did,” she admitted. However, she’s grateful that now he gets to spend more time with her and their family. “After so many years, we have shared – and continue to share – him with so many people. So it’s nice to have him home,” she said.

Victoria looks gorgeous on this cover! Not that surprised that she doesn’t want to do anything else with the Spice Girls. Her fashion has been her focus for quite a while, and I don’t see her giving that up for new music. Honestly though, if the group got back together, a good part of me thinks that they would be okay without her.

Tyra Banks Confirms Life-Size Sequel in the Works!

Where you live, where you are, BE A STAR! I never imagined this happening, but Tyra Banks has officially confirmed that there is a Life-Size sequel in the works.

Tyra admitted Digital Spy that a sequel is coming soon. “I have a meeting today to go over the script!” she said. “I swear! I don’t think it’ll be out until probably 2015, but I’m guessing it could be late 2014 or 2015. but it will be back. Life-Size will be back, better than ever.” She’s under contract not to say anything for now, but claims that the sequel will be “very modern.”

The original film was released back in 2000 and starred Lindsay Lohan as Casey Stuart, a tween who tried to bring her deceased mother back with a magic spell. Instead, she ends up bringing her doll Eve (played by Tyra) to life. It’s a Disney classic…at least to me!

The little kid in me is freaking out over this news. I KNOW I am not the only who remembers and loved this movie! I’m really hoping that Lindsay is apart of this sequel as well. I’ll still watch regardless, but she and Tyra again would be magic! For all the other fans, this is for you.

Justin Bieber: Nude Photos & Drugs? Oh My!


Where oh where did the sweet little Justin Bieber that inspired so much Bieber Fever go? He was such a cute little Canadian with such a cute little haircut and millions of adorable little fans. I’m not sure where that Justin Bieber is, but the new obnoxious egg throwing, party throwing Justin Bieber doesn’t appear to be going anywhere soon.

TMZ broke the news that a “Treasure trove of drugs” was found during the police raid at Bieber’s house, after reporting that Justin Bieber is abusing drugs a few days earlier. What drugs? Oh, you know, cocaine, marijuana, alcohol, codeine. Given Bieber’s recent behavior it’s not exactly surprising, but I was still holding out hope that he was just living out his obnoxious teenage phase and would eventually graduate to slightly immature young adult phase.

But nope, not Justin Bieber. Not content with possible rehab mode, he’s taken it to the next level: graphic nude photos, ex suggesting rehab, obnoxious possible drug user mode. Because go big or go home, people.

Yes, RadarOnline reports that Bieber sent graphic nude photos to ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez after she said he needed to go to rehab. You can read the whole text exchange at RadarOnline, but here’s a snippet:

  • Gomez : “U need to grow the f*ck up. I hope you get jail time [for the egging attack]. U deserve it at this point.”
  • Beiber: “F*CK YOU!!!!! I need to grow up?! HA ok! Enjoy life with OUT ME B*TCH!!! F*ck you. F*ck Scooter. F*ck all y’all. IAM DONE!”
  • Gomez: “Good!!! Go ‘retire’ or whatever bullish*t attention ur trying to get.”
  • Beiber: “Can’t hear you over my cash, babe! You’re only famous cuz of me. You know it. I know. Everybody knows. Bye. … Go f**k someone else. Keep that talentless p***y away from me!”

First Bieber employed the ‘deny deny deny’ tactic and so far no comment from his rep, but it appears someone close can’t be trusted.

The Bachelor’s Juan Pablo Galavis says No Gays Allowed- Apologizes.


Disclaimer: I haven’t watched an entire season of ‘The Bachelor‘ in what feels like forever. My favorite bit is the initial meeting and from there, I lose track of what happens. Unless there’s drama, and then I tune in to check it out, because I’m a sucker for drama. Well, y’all, this season’s bachelor is former Venezualan soccer star Juan Pablo Galavis and he’s bringing the drama- and the season hasn’t even started yet.

Apparently Juan Pablo (father of 4) was doing some sort of ABC press event/whatever on Friday night and said the following:

“I don’t think it is a good example for kids to watch that on TV.

Obviously people have their husband and wife and kids and that is how we are brought up.  Now there is fathers having kids and all that, and it is hard for me to understand that too in the sense of a household having peoples… Two parents sleeping in the same bed and the kid going into bed… It is confusing in a sense.  But I respect them because they want to have kids.  They want to be parents.  So it is a scale… Where do you put it on the scale?  Where is the thin line to cross or not?  You have to respect everybody’s desires and way of living.  But it would be too hard for TV.”

If you were confused about whether that blubbering was totally bad or totally good and are still unclear about where Juan Pablo stands, he followed it all up with his assertion that gay parents are guilty of being “more pervert in a sense.”

Well alrighty then, tell us how you really feel Juan Pablo. I’m thinking he’s never caught an episode of Modern Family? Yanno, on ABC? Home of ‘The Bachelor’?

Of course, Bachelor executive producers and Horizon Warner Television issued a statement soon after that reads: “Juan Pablo’s comments were careless, thoughtless and insensitive, and in no way reflect the views of the network, the show’s producers or studio.”

And then came the apologies from Juan Pablo himself, telling GLAAD, “I have heard from many gay Latinos today who are hurt because of what I said and I apologize.” According to GLAAD, Juan Pablo will be meeting with LGBT Latino families in Los Angeles.

So there you go- drama llama. Who knows, I may just tune in tonight, or not. You?

If you’re bored, check out the posts by others all over his Facebook page. Oops.

4 Epic Rants From Kanye West’s Recent Interview Magazine Interview


In the February issue of Interview magazine, Kanye West says he creates ‘sonic paintings’ that have helped cultivate his image. For heaven’s sake, Yeezy just wants to create.

Check out 4 (lengthy) epic quotes from West’s interview with Interview magazine.


1. “I’m a trained fine artist. I went to art school from the time I was 5 years old. I was, like, a prodigy out of Chicago. I want to be able to have a thought or an idea and bring it into reality. I’d been in national competitions from the age of 14. I got three scholarships to art schools … and I went to the American Academy of Art. So the joke that I’ve actually played on everyone is that the entire time, I’ve actually just been a fine artist. I just make sonic paintings, and these sonic paintings have led me to become whatever people think of when you say ‘Kanye West …”


2. “I want the power to create what is in my mind. That’s my dream. I want to be able to have a thought or an idea and bring it into reality.”


3. “I met with 30 billionaires, 30 companies, and basically everyone said, “F— you.” If I want to design a product, or if I think of a new way for us to view films, then I want to be able to do it. And what happened was that when we made ‘Watch the Throne,’ it was such an accomplishment, and I had a bit of money in my account, so I just started chasing other dreams. I did two fashion shows in one year — at one of them, I had go-karts that people could ride. I also shot a film in ‘surround vision,’ where I had seven screens — three in front of the audience, one above, one below, one to the left, one to the right. This is after designing ‘Watch the Throne’ — and I was putting my money towards it. I put the amount of free income that I could put into it, which went into the millions.”


4. “As a celebrity. I have an opportunity to make a living at being the spokesperson for the third or fourth rendition of a thought — promoting something that has already been proven. The problem is that I like to be the inventor — I’m the person who works on the concept, who invents new thoughts, who brings new ideas into the universe. I’m not the guy who works on selling the idea — I’m not Vanna White for the new Hyundai. I am the guy who works on the concept for the car. Too many people are scared. But it is my job to go up every night and talk about this kind of s—. It is actually my job. I’m like a broadcaster for futurism, for dreamers, for people who believe in themselves.”

Christina Milian: On Her Fiance, Wedding, Miley Cyrus & More


On Bethenny today, Christina Milian was on the show to chat about her fiance, upcoming wedding, Miley Cyrus and more. Girl is looking amazing!

Check out the highlights from the show below.


Bethenny: You went to her concert, you went with your fiancee. I am looking at the ring gorgeous.

Christina: Yeah, he did pretty good. Yeah we went, we sat front row, we were right there in front of her, she’s just an amazing performer. She’s such an inspiration as a woman.

Bethenny: Do you know her?

Christina: We’ve met a couple of different times and we have these great conversation about kids and stuff like that so I wouldn’t say we’ve gotten to hang out hang out all the way but we’ve definitely crossed paths so many times during the year. I had a good time there. Kevin Hart was sitting next to me, Kevin Hart is hilarious. I know Kevin, Kevin had me rolling the whole time calling her Tinker Bell and all this stuff, she did look like a blue Tinker Bell, she looked amazing. She just floated across the stage right in front of us she was just beautiful.

Bethenny: She really does it her own way.

Christina: In this day and age you really have the option to do that and it makes me really proud because it gives me the option to do whatever I want to do.


Bethenny: So you haven’t been very romantically public I am sure you’re trying to protect yourself but on New Year’s Eve you kind of let it slip a little and there is video of you celebrating with your fiance.

Christina: He’s a ton of fun we are like best friends, okay this sounds weird guys don’t get grossed out but we act like brother and sister where we are kind of like catty and annoying with each other but we get it. New Year’s Eve can be such a milestone for people and you think about what you have or don’t have. So was this an amazing one?Absolutely. It was great, it was just the two of us, which was nice and different, we were in Vegas. Really it was just going in with great energy and what could be better than being with your friends.


Bethenny: Will you do a big wedding?

Christina: I don’t know he has a big family, a really big family so I think it’s going to be big but I’m still like okay, we got a house, we got bills to pay, the life we like to live so I want it to be fun but I really just want to have people around that love us and understand us.


Bethenny: So Miley is a child of Disney but what do you think of her path and taking chances and doing whatever she wants?

Christina: You know what she’s an adult, she’s a woman and I just feel all artists are creative people and I think we have the right to express ourselves as artists. I don’t think a lot of people were ready for it, the way that it happened. It happened so drastically, it was dramatic like really quick. I will say at least she can sing and she has good songs. It’s one thing to say if you don’t have good songs and you’re doing all this stuff it’s like okay girl what are you doing?


Bethenny: So you’re known for your amazing body. You are and you work it and you rock it. Do u feel pressure about it?

Christina: I mean I pressure myself, it’s not necessarily what the public thinks but when I feel fit I feel good I feel more confident when I am eating right and when I know I am eating the right type of life that I want to I feel amazing but then I like to have fun too when the winter time comes around I call it my hibernation mode and eat lots of food and I sleep and I let those wings on the back of my arms that I am so blessed to have, those little flaps, I know you ladies know about that, those grow back and then by January I have to work those things off.

Bethenny: Right now you are in a resolution period? Really?

Christina: Yes.

Bethenny: How much weight do you gain during the winter?

Christina: I didn’t weigh myself this winter, I didn’t want to see it. Last winter I did 15 pounds it was.

Bethenny: You do that for like a roll, you a eat for the roll of winter. So what’s your diet philosophy, it’s extreme it sounds.

Christina: You mean to gain weight or lose weight?

Bethenny: In your life keeping yourself in shape, what’s your overall philosophy?

Christina: It’s actually not extreme, it’s very comfortable. When I decide that I am ready to be fit and I actually make a choice to work out I just do things like cut out carbs, a lot of red meats I cut down on that and drink a lot of water. Drink a lot of water you need to hydrate your body, your skin.


Nicki Minaj Tries Out Acting In The Other Woman Trailer (VIDEO)

For all of you all who didn’t know, Nicki Minaj wants to be an actress. And so I present to you Nicki Minaj in The Other Woman trailer.

She’s making her dreams come true, ya’ll. But does that mean she is a good actress? Well that is still yet to be determined.

I mean it is pretty common for a singer, rapper or athlete to want to become a famous actor and Minaj is like any other and that’s cool and all…but in case you didn’t see Gaga’s acting debut in Machete Kills, she received a Razzie nomination and that isn’t good.

This Spring we can all find out if Minaj has the acting chops when she stars in The Other Woman along with seasoned actress Cameron Diaz.

The film follows a woman (Diaz) who finds out that she is “the other woman” in an affair, and teams up with the man’s wife to get revenge on the cheating husband. Model Kate Upton also co-stars in the film.

And Minaj plays Diaz’s assistant at a law firm. Quite fittingly, Minaj plays a woman who doesn’t take no nonsense from anyone and she is also on her third marriage.

Check out a sneak peak of Minaj in The Other Woman trailer below.

Kate Gosselin Twins Humiliate Her In LIVE Interview (VIDEO)

This is got to be the most upsetting interview for Kate Gosselin. Sure, she’s had some doozies, but when her kids are not living up to her expectations, you know damn well she’s got to be a tad upset…especially when a live television interview doesn’t go as planned.

Kate appeared on the “Today” show with her 13-year-old twins Cara and Mady and while they were supposed to talk about how their mom has raised them as normal teenage girls who haven’t been damaged by being on a reality TV show, the girls pretty much tanked the whole dang thing.

And the girls simply refused to say a damn word.

You could totally tell that Kate was irritated and pretty much demanded the girls to speak. “It’s your chance … spit it out!” she said.

Check out the interview video for yourself above. It is definitely probably one of the most uncomfortable moments on television.

On a side note, that one girl looks a spitting image of her father Jon Gosselin, you think?
