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!

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

jason-trawick

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!

JustinBeiber

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.

juanpablogalavis

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.
