Amber Rose’s baby bump
Amber Rose Instagramed this photo of her baby bump. The 28-year-old is having the kid with rapper Wiz Khalifa. She commented with the photo: ”Good morning Rosebuds & Rosestuds Our lil wizbud Is growing so fast : )”
Tears of joy!!
“She’s too beautiful. How can I rightfully be her presence?” This fan got a little overwhelmed while meeting Spring Breakers star Selena Gomez. Who wouldn’t? When I saw her at TIFF I nearly wept on the red carpet. But then I didn’t because, you know.
Are we missing something?
It’s either the funniest picture we’ve seen, or the best hidden secret in pop culture. One Direction dolls clearly misplaced on the wrong shelf.

First there was Chris Brown with “Forever” and then there was Bruno Mars with “Marry You.” Scores of smitten grooms and their respective wedding parties put their own spin on choreography, performed their chosen song to the bride and uploaded the result on YouTube.
The newest wedding dance video to circulate is choreographed to One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.”
Canadian groom Sunjay Matthews performed the spicy dance routine for his bride on their wedding day, bypassing more popular choices such as the one by
Chris Brown The One Who Must Not Be Named. Anyway, we get that the overall message is damn sweet and we love that we can finally cast of Chris Brown’s “Forever” to the archives.
Watch it here:
Anyone who’s been following Justin Bieber’s Twitter feed (because DUH! who isn’t?!), has probably noticed the photo frenzy the singer has been going on for the last 24 hours. From making a return to Instagram to posting snapshots of moments in his life, it’s safe to say we all feel a little bit closer to the Biebs himself.
HURRAH! The Biebs has returned to Instagram!
While this photo is pretty standard in terms of Instagram photos, the teen singer was met with an overwhelming amount of comments saying “You’re back!!!!” after his six month hiatus from the photo-taking social network. But despite the fact that the Biebs is quite active on Twitter, it has been a painful time for all of us who have checked our Instagrams everyday for a possible Bieber update. But alas! He has returned!! It’s been way too long Justin Bieber. Never leave us again.
Katy Perry kisses One Direction
This was the precise moment One Direction’s Harry Style’s decided not to wash his cheek EVER AGAIN. When you get a kiss from Katy Perry, you cherish it. You respect it. [just-stop-hating]
Or you do this:
The Wanted lost the Best New Artist award to their British rivals One Direction. While most of them acted happy, Jay McGuiness clearly didn’t give a f*ck. [hardwicks]
Rihanna and Katy Perry are BFFs
You really didn’t have to form any opinions of last night’s show because Rihanna and her BFF Katy Perry (who were sitting together) did it for you. Check out some of their sweet expressions below. [toughloveonedirection]

When you’re nominated for a major award, it’s always good to be prepared for how you’ll react if you win or lose. If you win, you want to make sure you thank the right people and show your graciousness. If you lose, you want to make sure your expression shows you’re disappointed but still happy for the winner.
Host Kevin Hart asked One Direction to practice their expressions in both scenarios. They all look like they’re great sports, especially Harry Styles who doesn’t look disappointed about potentially losing AT ALL. Liam on the other hand…
Watch it here:
The guys also participated in a Twitcam convo where they played a guessing game with fans and shared what it’s like to see themselves as dolls. The guys will perform tonight and will see if they win awards for Best New Artist as well as Best Pop Video.

The Spring Breakers
Ashley Benson donned a beautiful couture dresses and hung out with BFFs and co-stars Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez at the Venice premiere of Spring Breakers. Her job is very difficult. It requires her to submit to the idea of fun, wave to adoring fans and wear a stunning designer outfit.
Officials were wondering why so many teen girls fainted precisely six minutes ago until they realized One Direction tweeted a photo of Harry Styles and Zayn Malik looking devilishly handsome rehearsing for tomorrow night’s VMAs. The county sheriff’s department is investigating.

From the brilliants minds of coupdemainmagazine comes one of the most inspired interviews we’ve seen of late (except for ours of course) and it involves Ed Sheeran and a cat named Monty. Ed was quite affectionate with the furry interviewer, probably because he was so flattered by the friendship sweater Monty presented him with. It’s always nice to start things off right.
Ed also answers some of the questions we’ve been dying to ask, such as: “Who was cuter as a kid, you or Ron Weasley?” and “Out of everyone from One Direction who would you like to present a rose to?”
The interview seems to get cut off quite suddently when Monty doddles away but it was only get a very special surprise for Ed!

Okay directioners, it’s official. Take deep breaths and prepare yourself for all this goodness. One Direction’s second album Take Me Home has an official release date —November 13 but if you haven’t already noticed, you’re looking at their new album artwork!
The boy’s new first single is titled “Live While We’re Young,” which we found out about in last week’s video announcement. You can officially store your own copy of the single on October 1 in Canada/US and September 30 in the UK. “Live While We’re Young” will premiere on radio stations worldwide starting Monday, September 24 so don’t forget to get those requests in — you’ll be able to jam out in your car. Duh.
During the major 1D announcement this morning, Niall said: “As you know, our new album is going to be called Take Me Home and it is available to pre-order from the 3rd of September at midnight.” We are totally looking forward what they have in store. They’ve been working with a handful of first-class producers and writers such as Rami Yacoub, Carl Falk and Savan Kotecha (wrote and produced “What Makes You Beautiful), Ed Sheeran, Dr. Luke and many more.
With the guys debut album Up All Night, and their second album now titled Take Me Home, fans couldn’t help but tweet the band some naughty suggestions. Really though, what do you expect from this fan base?
Watch the HUGE announcement here:
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Ryan Gosling is set to direct a film which he wrote and John Mayer ends it with Katy Perry via e-mail.
HIT: Ryan Gosling to direct his own film
He can sing, he can act and now he’ll direct his own film! Titled How to Catch a Monster, the flick will be lead by his Drive co-star Christina Hendricks. She’ll presumably play Billy, the single mother of two, who with her sons gets sucked into a fantasy underworld that they must escape from. Gosling also wrote the script and it’s scheduled to start filming next spring. Perfect Gosling is just perfect.
MISS: John Mayer dumped Katy Perry over e-mail
According to US Weekly, Perry found out her short summer fling with Mayer was over via e-mail. He probably thinks he’s hot shit because he cut his hair. I wouldn’t worry too much though, Perry fans. She’ll probably use this heartbreak to write another great hit.
HIT: Nick Jonas to co-judge with Demi Lovato on the X-Factor
I know the Jonas Brothers and Demi have always been on good terms ever since she and Joe split, but it’s always nice to see it reaffirmed. The youngest Jonas musician will be joining Demi on the X-Factor as a judge. While it’s not the American Idol gig he was reportedly looking for, X-Factor will at least deliver competition experience he was looking for.

That awkward moment when you’ve fallen in love with A
After muchos thought and consideration, Spencer had sex with Pretty Little Liars’ Toby, who totally had his eyes open when he was kissing her (why were they open TOBY?). Turns out the dude is part of the A-team, but we’re crossing our fingers he’s working undercover. What did you think of the midseason finale, which was aptly called “BetrAyal?” [prettyl-ittleliars and prettylittleliarsquestions]
Reporters versus Hurricane Isaac
No, this isn’t an episode of Man vs. Wild. NBC’s Al Roker and The Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore report on Hurricane Isaac from New Orleans. Stay safe everyone! [Buzzfeed]

Colours VS. Patterns
Sadly, getting back into the routine of classes is around the corner, and if you’re already there,we feel for you. On the bright side, going back to school comes with back to school shopping. You can still feel like you’re walking on sunshine with these fashionable backpacks. Which would you choose? [teenjournal]
Bring your non-existant boyfriends to school with you
Is it just me, or having these star-studded notebooks would actually give me the motivation to do my homework? Not only are they totally cute to carry around (and I wouldn’t be embarrassed about it), you can just doze off and stare at their pretty faces during a boring lecture.
Decorating your dorm
Sometimes when you’re off to college, you don’t actually get the living accommodations you thought you’d have. In the end, you have to make the best of it. I really like how this girl has all her necessities (desk, bed, fridge) as well as organizing bins to save space and clutter. You can never go wrong with bringing along pics of friends & family to feel more at home. [tarynxoox]

It was a hard couple of days for Directioners, most commonly known as hard-core fan girls for One Direction. One of the members Zayn Malik had enough of the hate he’d been receiving online and decided to delete his Twitter account, which obviously caused one huge frenzy. The majority of the comments were based on his relationship with Perrie Edwards. Before he decided to leave, he sent out a message to his followers:
Instantly, 1D fans were trending messages for Zayn to come back. Thankfully he looked past all the negative tweets and realized that Directioners could not live through this “crisis.” Especially since more than half of them dedicate their whole life to the boys, which include tweeting the heart throb daily.
In better news, if you didn’t wake up extra early this morning to hear the boy’s big announcement, it’s that their new single “Live While We’re Young,” will be on presale at midnight. The song will be their first single off their new album coming out this November. By the looks of the video, they’re still goofing around and enjoying what they do best. Who knows, maybe their new song will sound a bit different from what they’ve done in the past to match their new looks. Are you excited?
Watch the video here:
Nothing beats Ed Sheeran giving the finger and thumbs up to a camera and saying “Lets go get really drunk” followed by Harry saying ”Okay!”
This video was shot after the London Games’ epic Closing Ceremony and features some of the performers, including Ed Sheeran, One Direction, Spice Girls and Russell Brand. It’s one of those fly on the wall videos where you get to see what happened AFTER the performance.
Some key scenes? Niall taking a fanboy-style photo of Liam and Louis, Russell Brand wading into the crowd like a Greek god and the Spice Girls chatting with friends.
Watch it here:
There are a few things I can tell you after watching the One Direction promo for the VMAs. Most notable, is that it’s pretty darn cheesy, but cheesy in a good way. For one thing, a good portion of the ad is shot in slow motion, which allows your lingering gaze to settle on Harry’s messy-chic hair or consider Niall’s generally playful nature (jumping on Liam’s back, mock-punching Louis).
Then we get individual shots of each of them looking dashing enough to distract your eyes from the random, animated background behind them. The script isn’t all that engaging, but we’re like “kay whatever” because we’re not really watching for the script right?
One Direction will perform at the 2012 MTV VMAs on Sept. 6.

“Call Me Maybe (Cover)” — Kelly Clarkson
Every show, Kelly Clarkson lets a fan from the audience choose a song for her to sing, which is why we’ve been hearing her cover tracks like Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” and Britney Spears’ “Everytime.” This time, a few people in the audience asked her to cover Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.” We’ve heard tons of renditions of this track but this simplified version works because we really get to focus on a catchy melody and great vocals.
“You’re Gonna Love This” — 3OH!3
Poor 3OH!3…they started the whole pop/rap/dance/auto tune/alcoholic/patterned pants craze and LMFAO and Kesha swooped right in and stole their thunder. The duo hasn’t given up though and in the name of all that is outrageous and obnoxious, I give you “You’re Gonna Love This,” off their newest album Omens. The music video for the track is pretty simple. They both try to win over the same girl, one-upping each other by throwing things and aiming really well. Unfortunately, the girl in the video is totally unimpressed and gets whisked away by a Tom Cruise look-a-like, leaving the boys to find some other fish in the sea.
“Kill the DJ”— Green Day Read more…
It’s pretty much a given that the boys of One Direction are a handsome bunch. With hundreds of girls all over the world wanting to steal a hug or a kiss with the British lads, one would think the One Direction craze would never die down.
But what happens when the good-looking young men grow old…say 50 or 60 years later? Do you think they would age as gracefully as George Clooney?
While it would be weird to think so long down the road, I really couldn’t help but wonder how to boys would look as older men. So with the help of the internet and a photo transformer, I found some digitally altered photos of the boys looking very aged.
By Sophall Duch
What they’re wearing: The quintet performed at the London Olympic closing ceremony dressed in very dapper casualwear. What you see is an array of slim-fit chinos, crisp button-ups, converse sneakers, tailored jackets, and of course Zayn’s fedora.
Why we love it: The band coordinated their looks in a cool and neutral colour scheme, which consisted of blues, greys, and whites. This way, they each maintained their own respective styles while looking like a cohesive group. (Hence no real outstanding favourite!) Together, the looks are the perfect balance of dressed-up and relaxed cool, which makes sense for such an important occasion (I’m looking at you hoodie-wearing Ed Sheeren!). While the Olympics are an important international event, the closing ceremony is essentially a big farewell party.
Takeaway You can essentially wear any of these looks for day or night. Well, perhaps not Harry’s suit, but a well-tailored suit is still a must-have regardless! Sidenote: last week I talked about untucked shirts — well untucked shirts become hipper with a buttoned collar button.
Mel C (aka Sporty Spice)
What she’s wearing: Sporty Spice joined the other Spice Girls in a custom JD Sports jumpsuit at the 2012 London Olympic closing ceremony.
Why we love it: While One Direction coordinated their looks, we knew the Spice Girls were gonna give us a major fashion show. How can they not with fashion icon Victoria Beckham (aka Posh Spice) in the mix? I know picking a single Spice Girl as best dressed is controversial because everyone has their favourite Spice Girl. But when it comes down to it, Melanie C. was a total standout amongst the other ladies and yet stayed true to her Sporty Spice style in this white jumpsuit. The outfit has a killer silhouette, is embellished with a sparkly rhinestone belt, has slits in the side to show off some skin, and is accessorized with silver high-heeled sneakers that any serious sneaker-lover would die for.
Takeaway: While the silhouette might be a little much for everyday, try rocking a flare jean and pant to change things up. The skinny leg has become the standard silhouette for pants and jeans but going with a flare or a wide-leg trouser will make you look fashion forward (major upcoming trend!) and will flatter most body types.
Silver goes to: Mel B/Scary Spice gets points for wearing a risqué glittery beaded catsuit by Zuhair Murad. Bronze to Emma/Baby Spice for wearing a modern architectural neon pink Maggie Cook dress. A good job but I expected more from Posh in her black Giles Deacon mullet gown and Geri/Ginger Spice in her strapless red mini and ruffled Union Jack by Suzanne Neville.
What he’s wearing: The English actor wore a steel blue Gucci suit to the premiere of his new movie Cosmopolis in New York City.
Why we love it: Despite all the personal drama going on his life right now, Pattinson had us feeling blue in a good way. The varying shades of blue keeps this look cool and sophisticated. Although it’s a small detail, the textured black tie gives it that something extra. BTW sometimes suits tend to look the same so it’s actually all in the details and cut. The leather lace-ups keep things polished. R-Patz is also giving One Direction’s Zayn a run for his money with that loose and casual bouffant of his.
Takeaway: Monochromatic outfits (those in varying shades of one colour) can be tricky but quite remarkable if pulled off correctly. Try staying within a shade range so that the colour transitions from one shade to the next, without jumping from one extreme to another. Also note that two-button jackets are flattering for most-guys and are on-trend.

Back when One Direction was filming the music video for “What Makes You Beautiful” on a sunny beach in Malibu (must be nice), they sat down on the sand, gathered Kumbaya-style and sang Oasis’ classic “Wonderwall.”
In the video, Niall sits on a cooler playing the guitar like Noel Gallagher in his flashy aviators, while they all harmonize in front of the surf. The video is kind of retro One Direction (check out Liam’s hair!) but it’s still a good cover to wrap up this last bit of summer.
Their rendition has received harsh criticism from 1D haters who say British music has descended from the likes of The Beatles and Oasis to One Direction. @supersonicyy0uth tweeted: “one direction have covered Oasis is that why it’s raining so much, the sky is crying?”
We’ve heard tons of awesome One Direction covers lately but we’ve got room for another one if it’s Rita Ora. The stylish singer visited BBC Radio 1 “Live Lounge” and covered “What Makes You Beautiful.” The song is just as chirpy as the original but changes the instrumentation with some maracas and a tropical sounding guitar and drum solo in the middle.
Ora also performed an acoustic version of her single “How We Do (Party).” We only have a couple weeks to go until her debut album ORA drops, but these performances will satiate us in the meantime.

Thanks to Harry Potter‘s Tom Felton (who played Slytherin’s Malfoy) our lives have been enriched with these photos of the bandmates from One Direction looking quite dazzling in red carpet dresses. Felton is particularly partial to Harry Styles, who wears a short, belted number that reveals his cleavage. Thank you Tom Felton, thank you.
Who’s dressed the best?
