Sometimes people forget that celebrities have feelings like the rest of us. So much so, that people will even go out of their way to tweet mean things towards them.
Luckily enough, many celebrities are able to take insults with a grain of salt. In fact, they’ll even play along like the good sports they are!
My personal fave here is Ray Romano. Don’t ever insult a comedian, because he/she will DEFINITELY have something smart to say back.
Blond moment! Last night on the Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Jessica Simpson let it slip that she’s having a baby boy. When asked about her pregnancy she replied, “The crazy thing is that I never knew that a wiener could actually make me nauseous!”
Uhhh, no one really know what to make of the joke but then Jessica dropped the bomb, “Oh, shucks! Well, I guess told the world that I’m having a boy!”
Good One Jess. At least she has nice hair…
Rihanna just debuted her River Island Collection during London Fashion Week which officially gives her an invitation to the celebrity fashion designers club.
Celebrities can be great people to look up to when looking for style inspiration, but some celebs are a little bit easier to channel sartorially than others as you can purchase a little bit of them through their own fashion lines. However not every celebrity-turned-designer are as good as others.
Let us guide you through the messy world of celebrity fashion lines to see which celebrity fashion lines you should save your change for. We break down who’s worthy of becoming a fashion brand, who’s merely a hit, and who should keep their day job in one handy dandy list.
1) Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen: The Row, Elizabeth & James, Olsenboye, StyleMint, and Mary-Kate and Ashley for Wal-Mart.
Where to begin with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen? The famous duo got their start in the entertainment industry at the ripe ol’ age of six month, when the fraternal twins took turns playing baby sister Michelle Tanner on Full House. That was only the beginning and they went on to build an empire worth over one billion dollars. Apart from the iconic role of Michelle Tanner and their many movies and other T.V. shows, the twins managed to create a name for themselves within the fashion industry.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen top our list because not only have they had a head start in the business than most celebrities, their many fashion lines have managed to boost their fledgling adult acting careers and have given them a new sense of purpose and career path. Their many successful fashion lines have been the envy of other celebrities since they are quintessentially the blueprint for other celebrity fashion lines. The sisters have all markets covered from luxury brand The Row, to mid-market brand Elizabeth & James (the Elizabeth is for their sister who has now become a in-demand actress herself), and Olseneboye which is an exclusive partnership with mass-market department store JC Penney.
So not only are their fashions available to everyone which score major points, but when other celebrities where your clothes then you know you’ve made it as a fashion designer.
Verdict: Major Fashion Brand- for their mass market and high fashion appeal and high-end and low-end price ranges.
2) Victoria Beckham: Victoria Beckham Collection, dvb, and Victoria by Victoria Beckham.
While as Posh Spice, Victoria Beckham wasn’t the usual centre of the attention as she had to compete with the more in-your-face members of the iconic girl group, the Spice Girls. But now that she’s been on her own, Victoria probably commands the most attention from the public than any of the other members of the Spice Girls. While she did attempt and ultimately floundered at a solo pop career, Victoria has maintained her A-list status as a major fashion icon– all thanks to her impeccable fashion sense, her superstar athlete of a husband David Beckham, and her trademark pout.
What makes Victoria Beckham’s fashion lines so successful is that she’s the best brand ambassador for her clothing. Wonder what she’s wearing in all those various paparazzi shots of her? Well she’s most likely wearing her own clothes! Other stars have taken notice as well, having been spotted and photographed wearing clothes from Victoria’s collections. (Other celebrities wearing your designs a major fashion coup!) The problem with celebrity fashion lines are that the celebrities hardly ever wear their own designs! While celebrity designers might don their own designs once in a while, they are never as consistent as Victoria Beckham.
Verdict: High Fashion Brand- for its high fashion appeal but unfortunately her clothes have high-end to mid-market price tags on them. So you better save up!
3) Rachel Zoe: The Rachel Zoe Collection and Luxe Rachel Zoe. Read more…
HIT: The 2013 Golden Globes Award Show
This year’s Golden Globes can only be described as “perfection,” and here’s only some of the reasons why:
Seriously, best awards show. Ever.
MISS: Twitter reactions to Jennifer Lawrence’s acceptance speech
Twitter went a little crazy when our lovely J-Law started her speech with “What does it say? I beat Meryl!” The backlash was a bit disappointing considering I saw it coming from some prominent industry figures (and Lindsay Lohan) because you’d think they know that J-Law was simply quoting the 1996 movie, The First Wives Club. Unfortunately, she had to explain the joke to everyone who’s not on Tumblr while on Late Night with David Letterman on Tuesday night. While her on-stage joke may not have gotten the reception she was looking for, she will have the chance to try again when she hosts Saturday Night Live this weekend.
HIT: One Direction visits Ghana for charity
One Direction is currently in Ghana in support of the U.K. charity, Comic Relief. The five visited Accra, the country’s capital, to meet people who have received donations and support from the charity. While the boys are doing a very nice thing, we do hope they don’t over-generalize the living conditions in Ghana. Hopefully, their world travels have taught them to see both sides of every place so those stuck at home (a.k.a. me) can see the natural beauty of Ghana.

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Jennifer Lawrence becomes a real life hero and Drake and Chris Brown are offered $1 million each to fight each other.
HIT: Jennifer Lawrence aids a girl who passed out on her lawn
Jennifer Lawrence became someone’s real life hero when she and her neighbours helped a girl who collapsed outside of her home. Look! Humanity in Hollywood does exist outside of over the top fundraisers! I suggest she be inducted into the hero-status celebrity club, which also consists of Johnny Depp and David Beckham.
MISS: Jessie J got stuck in the washroom at a Watch the Throne show
The singer’s fun night out turned into an embarrassing life moment when she and friend got stuck inside a washroom at Jay Z and Kanye’s show in London. Jessie J and a friend went to go touch up their make up, but her friend mistakenly locked the door even though it looked broken. They were there for about 15 minutes when security knocked the door down to rescue the two. Then they returned to their seats and all their unknowing friends were all like: “why the hell were you in the washroom so long? Locked door? Sure…”

Come right this way folks, follow the red velvet rope along and marvel at these photo masterpieces, portraying celebrities at their
finest drunkest. Hush young socialite, it’s okay. It happens to your dowdy, non-famous neighbour next door as much as it does to you. Unfortunately you’re more likely to be the victim of a pants-less time capsule gifted by the paparazzi than the guy with a flip-cam next door. [Source]

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Jessica Simpson shows the world how adorable baby Maxwell is, and even Kim Kardashian loses parts of her luggage while flying.
HIT: Drake and Rihanna spotted together at a miami night club
According to US Weekly, Drake and Rihanna were getting hot and heavy with each other. While they may not be in a relationship together just yet, can we just take a moment to bask in the potential perfection of this pairing? It may not have worked out the first time, but I think Rihanna deserves a nice Canadian boy to make her happy.
MISS: Amanda Bynes can’t keep herself out of trouble
No dancing lobsters for Amanda Bynes just yet as the actress has been accused of two hit and run incidents. She later dismissed the claims via Twitter and also said she doesn’t drink. Even so, she still needs to keep her hands off her phone and eyes off her twitter account while driving.
HIT: Jessica Simpson’s baby is adorable on the cover of People Magazine
I don’t really care much for when stars pimp out their lives on the cover of tabloids (I don’t care if you lost weight!), but Baby Maxwell is as adorable as they come. Babies in general are just so cute! I want to pinch their little cheeks and watch Sesame Street with them all day. If you don’t like babies, you are probably dead because you have no heart.

After what seemed like year, Jessica Simpson FINALLY gave birth to one Maxwell Drew Johnson. And no, despite the deceiving name the baby isn’t a boy.
This is her first child with fiance Eric Johnson. “Eric and I are elated to announce the birth of our baby Maxwell Drew Johnson 9 lbs. 13 oz. 21 3/4,” Simpson wrote on her website today. “”We are so grateful for all of the love, support and prayers we have received. This has been the greatest experience of our lives!”
According to Us Magazine, Maxwell’s middle name is from her maternal grandmother Tina Simpson, whose maiden name is Drew. The baby weighed a hefty 9 lbs. 13 ounces, which isn’t surprising considering she felt like she was carrying a bowling ball.
I personally love the name. Thoughts?
Jimmy Kimmel was quite the gentleman when Jessica Simpson went on his show last night and he asked the question that’s all on our minds: “Now I feel a little nervous asking this but are you pregnant?” he jokingly asked.
The obviously preggers Simpson laughed and said the reason she’s so big is because she has a lot of amniotic fluid, so whenever her water breaks it will be like a “fire hydrant.” Luckily, she didn’t go into labour that night, though it would have been interesting to see Kimmel deliver a baby. It probably would have served as inspirational material for a new hit song too.
The eloquent Simpson was “classic Jessica” last night, though she had a bit of pregnancy brain. My favourite part was when she likened pregnancy to having a bowling ball sitting on her hoo-ha. There’s a picture…
Watch the clip below:
After a long hiatus John Mayer is back with his new song “Shadow Days.”
We imagine the tune would be perfect for a mildly generic romantic comedy during the pivotal scene when the two main characters realize they’re actually destined for each other after an overplayed cat and mouse chase.
The mellow, easy listening song was supposed to be released on March 6 but he ended up leaking the full version of the track on Cities97 Radio.
The lyrics chronicle a man who had a rough start but is finally ready to let go: “Well I ain’t no troublemaker, And I never meant her harm, But it doesn’t mean I didn’t make it hard to carry on.”
What does it really mean? Our guess is that it’s a resounding apology to all the celebrities he’s tainted in the past by dating them: Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson…
Today in the world of Twitter, Jessica Simpson had trouble identifying whether that queasy feeling in her stomach was her baby or just mere gas. The more likely explanation is that the munchkin was dancing. Nothing gets you moving like her late 90s hit “I Think I’m in Love.” Anyone? Just me?!
More confusion, but this time for The Office’s BJ Novak. We see the slow collapse of his joy when he realizes that it’s actually a leap year and that in fact, tomorrow is still February, or as it’s better known the most depressing month of the year.
Wiz Khalifa wished his mom a happy birthday yesterday and I think it’s safe to say it was a good one. Don’t worry, mama Khalifa has the same tolerance as her son, so she’s pretty much indestructible.
Ladies, I know sometimes it’s super hard to eat healthy and exercise every single day in order to drop a few pounds. It’s much easier to stuff your face whenever you want with whatever you want.
I’m currently writing this article with bacon bits stuck to my shirt. But, I’ll be honest, if I got paid $3 million like Jessica Simpson, there will be nothing but organic carrot juice on my shirt from now on.
Perez Hilton explains the mom-t0-be has been in talks with Weight Watchers for months now, as her baby bump gets bigger and bigger. Jessica looks like she’s about to pop any minute now, and because of the company, she’ll be paid to lose all that baby weight.
“The deal is in place, and after having her baby, she’ll start with Weight Watchers to lose her baby weight,” a source says.
Nothing gets you more motivated to get off your ass than money, right? I’ve never been so jealous of Jessica until now.
His lyric “Sugar, it’s going down” really rings true today.
TMZ has announced that Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz are officially divorced after three and a half years of marriage. According to the L.A. County Superior Court, their marriage was formally terminated on November 22.
No information has been released about the custody of their child, Bronx Mowgli, but it is rumoured that Simpson is requesting primary custody while Wentz is requesting joint. Wentz says that the split is a cause of the couple growing apart.
It seems that the Simpson sisters are not having much luck in the marriage department! Let’s just hope that Jessica’s soon-to-be marriage with NFL player Eric Johnson ends better than her marriage with singer Nick Lachey or Ashlee’s with Pete. I guess the third Simpson marriage is a charm?
She may have not officially confirmed it yet but we all know Jessica Simpson is preggers. We also know that when a woman’s pregnant, she’s twice as likely to act a little crazy.
The other day Jessica tweeted a photo of herself on the toilet with a caption that says “Short girl problems”. Het feet are seen hanging off the seat, showing how she’s too short for her feet to touch the ground. She may have thought that was funny but the rest of us don’t.
Poor ol’ country pumpkin Jess has said and done some crazy things on and off cameras. Remember that time she claimed the brand Chicken of the Sea was actually chicken and not tuna? Remember when she once claimed she only brushes her teeth three times a week?
Just by following her on Twitter you can find our some pretty interesting things about the mom-to-be.
- She’s digging the new Bon Iver record
- She thinks sauerkraut smells like leprechaun piss
- Antique shopping really gets her off
- She watches a looooooot of t.v. and football
Keep those funny tweets coming, Jess! We’re very entertained.
“What kind of music would y’all want from me on my next album? Thinking about going back to the studio,” Jess wrote on her Twitter account.
Jessica Simpson is busy these days with her new fiancée and designing jewellery for Zales.
That’s kind of embarrassing! Jessica Simpson arrived at a business meeting where she wore a tight dress, which kind of showed a baby bump. Obviously everyone thought she was pregnant. But actually no….
Her spokesperson told Hollywood Life that “She is not pregnant.”
Simpson has said in the past, “I definitely see myself having a family with Eric, so that’s exciting to think about.”
Eric of course is Eric Johnson, her NFL player fiancée.
So that baby bump was actually a gut. Poor Jessica.
Fashion designer Nicole Richie has earned the title of celebrity mentor on the new NBC series Fashion Star according to People.
She will be joining singer Jessica Simpson, menswear designer John Varvatos and host Elle Macpherson who will all be working with aspiring designers as they compete for a chance to win the title of ‘fashion star’ and a multi-million dollar contract that will allow them to start their own brands.
Richie’s fashion resume includes a House of Harlow jewelry collection, footwear, eye wear and handbag lines.
Not only does she have a successful women’s collection, but also a maternity line called Pea in the Pod.
With such an extraordinary group of mentors and designers, the show looks promising.
Singing sisters Jessica and Ashlee Simpson are going to launch a tween clothing line, reports Billboard.
The line will be launched under the ‘Jessica Simpson Collection’ label and will include everything from sportswear to denim to fashion-forward pieces. The line will hit stores in the fall.
Jessica and Ashlee will reportedly serve as the collection’s co-creative directors.
“Creating a tween apparel collection was a natural extension for the brand. I’m excited to bring my sister, Ashlee, along as co-creative director of this division, because she brings a savvy rocker edge that defines today’s tweens,” Jessica told WWD.
Ashlee adds, “My goal as co-creative director will be to design clothes that will help inspire young girls to express their personalities and creativity through fashion.”
Scoff not at this idea, though. Jessica’s adult clothing line, titled ‘The Jessica Simpson Collection’ and features virtually anything from shoes to handbags, racked in a total of $750 million in 2010.
I think the line will do well, as all of Simpson’s clothing ventures do. I think she markets it right, prices it low, and creates items that appeal to a large demographic.
Radar Online is reporting that Jessica Simpson and BF Eric Johnson are engaged to be married after only seven months of dating.
Suspicions were raised when Simpson was spotted sporting a gigantic rock at an appearance in Kansas City this weekend. Her rep was quick to confirm the rumor, saying they were “Happy to confirm that Jessica and Eric are engaged.”
The news comes just days after Simpson’s ex-husband Nick Lachey announced his engagement to new flame Vanessa Minnillo. Though considering the circumstances, we’d say ex-football player Johnson is a major upgrade from the 98 Degrees washup.
We’re sure Jess knows what she’s doing this time around, right?
“I have a white girl booty. I don’t have a big butt. I’d rather have a happy medium and take some off my chest and put it towards my butt so I could balance out a bit,” the pop star told Closer Magazine.
On all the press about her weight:
“People talked about my weight for an entire year. Being famous for gaining 10lbs is ridiculous! I didn’t feel as fat as everybody was making me out to be. Even the president felt he had to make a comment – although I think he was caught off guard as the picture was thrown in front of his face!”
On how her boyfriend Johnson has helped her love her body:
“I’m more confident than I’ve ever been in my life. I’m much more at peace with myself and whatever life brings my way.”
