I have to admit that I’m inexplicably intrigued by Kim Kardashian’s life. Don’t give me that look! I know there are a ton of you out there, considering she now has more Twitter followers than President Obama.
At the same time, I don’t know why we’re drawn to such sadistic drama. Even The Hunger Games’ Jennifer Lawrence backs me up on this. She recently commented on how we see Kim’s life as entertainment: “I was watching the Kardashian girl getting divorced, and that’s a tragedy for anyone,” Lawrence told Parade. “But they’re using it for entertainment, and we’re watching it.”
Kim is a leading lady in the media so it’s no surprise that if a celebrity utters one good or bad word against her, it’s blown out of proportion. Those “battles” are like wildfires — one quote is misinterpreted and all of Hollywood goes a blazing!
Here’s the running tally:
1) We all heard about Jon Hamm slamming the Kims and Paris Hiltons out there. But when Kim slammed Hamm right back by calling him careless, instead of apologizing the Mad Men actor stood by his original burn and said on The Today Show: “It’s a part of our culture that I certainly don’t identify with, and I don’t really understand the appeal of it other than in a sort of car crash sensibility. And it’s not something that I partake in or enjoy, but it is what is and here we are.” He also said: “There are a lot of channels on the dials and those channels need to be filled up with things… Its different strokes for different folks” If this feud continues it might become bigger than Kim’s booty!
2) Tough guy actor Jason Statham recently jumped on the bandwagon of insults. During his most recent interview with Details magazine he was asked if he considers himself a brand… his response was “Fahk ‘em. Kim Kardashian’s a brand.”
3) Kris Humphries’ made his first public dig about Kim to Life & Style on March 20. He told the magazine: “I am a genuine person who says it like it is,” he told the mag on March 20. “I only like to be involved with things I truly believe in. It’s the kind of person I am. A lot of people do things just for money, but that’s not for me.” That kind of seems like a dig at workaholic Kim.
Wow divorce really does bring out the best in people!
A look back:
Relationship expert Misogynist Snoop Dogg gave Chris Humphries advice on how to deal with Kim in a recent online video. He said Kim’s “cold-blooded, I’m pretty sure she’ll have a book in a month talking about all the n****s that she got and how she played them.” He also added “so, my advice is you can’t make a ho a housewife. Don’t try to reinvent the wheel.” While I want to think the best of Snoop I wonder if Kim formerly rejected the rapper’s come-ons. In “Drop It Like It’s Hot” he raps: ”See I specialize in making all the girls get naked,” but maybe he wasn’t hot enough for Kim.
5) Barbara Walters did not hold back when she interviewed the Kardashians for her 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011 segment. Walters grilled the girls throughout the interview and then
implied outright said that she is talentless. “’You don’t really act; you don’t sing; you don’t dance,’ Walters said. ‘You don’t have any – forgive me – any talent!” It’s not really a feud if she’s just stating the facts right? But why is it inappropriate for Jason or Jon to say something similar?
Britney Spears celebrated her 30th Birthday by ice skating in Houston with her boyfriend Jason Trawick, reports People.
Britney also received a ton of celebrity Happy Birthday wishes. ”Happy birthday to the beautiful Miss Britney Spears! Welcome to the 30′s club, Brit!!” Kim Kardashian told the pop star on Celebuzz. “I wish you all the best for this next year and beyond. You’re going to love your 30′s! I love you and hope you have a magical day.”
Britney returned to Mexico City today to continue her tour.
Everyone can admit that Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine is pretty nice to look at. There can’t be a guy who doesn’t envy his muscular physique. So, how does the star stay in such good shape? With yoga, of course!
In the December 2011 issue of Details, Levine says fans will never go backstage at a Maroon 5 concert and not see a room marked ‘Yoga’.
“Yoga takes what you have and molds and sculpts it, which is a much more natural way to look and feel,” he says. Talk about dedicated! But hey, if that’s what he has to do to look like that, who are we to stop him!
“I don’t like how people bullshit about how yoga is not about vanity,” Levine tells the magazine. “Playing a show before thousands of people is a highly unnatural state, and when I get on the mat to do an hour of yoga before the show, I come out physically relaxed.”
So, do you want to look like Adam Levine? Well, here are the three essential poses Levine uses during his routine;
1. The Headstand I
2. The “half-moon with hands in prayer”
3. The “One-Legged Koundinyasana II”
To learn more of Levine’s yoga tips and yoga favourites, check out the Details website or watch the video below.
TMZ reports more information is surfacing regarding the death of Amy Winehouse. Amy was apparently found dead in her bed by her security guard.
Chris Goodman, a friend and rep for Winehouse, explained, ”She was in her bedroom after saying she wanted to sleep and when he went to wake her he found she wasn’t breathing.”
Goodman continued, “He called the emergency services straight away. He was very shocked. At this stage no one knows how she died. She died alone in bed.”
Don’t worry fans, they’re still not breaking up! Just because Kevin has gotten married and disappeared from the world, Nick has been working on his acting and producing songs, and Joe has been working on his solo album, it still doesn’t mean that the trio are separating! Of course not.
Where have these three brothers been, you may ask? Valid question. But it seems we have found one of them! Joe Jonas can be seen adorning this month’s issue of Details magazine. And might we say, he is looking mighty fine!
In the article, Jonas dishes about breaking out of the teen-idol shell and making a name for himself, sans Nick and Kevin.
“I’m growing up, the fans are growing up,” Joe told Details. “I’ve gone through a lot of stuff in my life so far. There are stories I haven’t really been able to tell. When you’re writing with three people, you wind up with a sound that might be—not average—but, you know, expected.”
The article, entitled “Joe Goes it Alone” (but remember, they’re NOT breaking up), goes on to express Joe’s feelings of going solo:
“We’re not breaking up, we’re just taking a break,” Joe says. “I really have a hope for the fans that got older and went, ‘You know what, I’m really not into the Jonas Brothers anymore,’ that I’m able to catch their ear again with my project and they’re able to go, like, ‘Hey, this is cool stuff, I’m happy listening to this, I’m not embarrassed listening to this.’”
According to Perez Hilton, Joe recently opened up about his upcoming album, and working with producer Danja:
“I think for me the biggest influences are Daft Punk. I love their music. There’s a guy, Frankmusik, out of London, a lot of electro DJs out in Europe are doing some cool stuff right now. I just listen to a bunch of stuff you dance to, kind of electro-based. A lot of stuff that’s so amazing [that] you can create on the computer. I think, for both of us, we are huge fans of the new ‘Tron‘ movie. To be able to go on a musical journey for a while and finally with finding Danja and working with him, we’ve been able to collaborate on something that really works for me. And to find me and not try to mold it into something it’s not, to try and be myself and my music and kind of tell stories and be honest and just have something … when people hear it, hopefully they’ll be able to dance to it and have a good time.”
Hmm…this sounds extremely different from the usual Jonas melodies, making me sceptical to believe it completely. But one thing’s for sure; I will be dancing when this album comes out!
“It’s Joe’s album, it’s not just something put together for him,” Danja told Details. “He’s collaborating with the writing. He’s very different from what you’d expect. All I can say is he’s an adult man. He has a rock-star edge about him.”
Will it be good, will it be bad; will it makes our ears bleed, or leave us singing our praises? So many questions, so little answers, especially keeping in mind that Hollywood Records promised this album in early 2011. Reality check, it’s already mid-March. So where is it?!
Sorry for any Jonas Brothers fans, but the eldest of the brothers is taken. Kevin Jonas is engaged to his girlfriend of almost two years, according to People.
On Wednesday, one third of the Jonas Brothers trio showed up to girlfriend Danielle Deleasa’s New Jersey home, got on one knee and asked her to marry him. “She said yes, yes, yes, like 500 times super fast in a row,” he told People.
The pair met in 2007 while their families were on a Bahamas vacation. At the time Deleasa, a former hairdresser, admits she didn’t even know who the Jonas Brothers were.
“It was tough performing last night, knowing that I was going to ask the biggest question in my life to the most amazing girl in the world,” Kevin said to the magazine. He arrived from an overnight flight to ask her to marry him.
