Britney Spears Wows with Vegas Residency

eonline.com

Friday kicked off Britney Spears' Sin City residency at the Axis Theater inside the Planet Hollywood and social media was all abuzz. For those of you who watched her Britney Jean special on E!, you can tell she's definitely back.
dailymail.uk

Her choreography is on-point and she's back to singing all of her hits! She just looks fantastic.
I personally cannot wait to see this show!
*crossing my fingers my cheap friends want to go!*
Miley Cyrus was front and center on opening night.

Prior to the news of her residency, I felt Spears was too old for the Vegas scene. However, after watching the doc and getting the details that the show is more of a club experience....it's perfect for her!

Yeezus Gifts Kim Kardashian with a MBDTF-Inspired Birkin

Via Kim Kardashian's Instagram.





Like any normal person on Instagram, Kim Kardashian IG'd her Christmas present she received from fiance.
#HandPaintedGeorgeCondo #HermesBirkin#OneofOne #ChristmasPresentFromYeezye"
Those are the hastags Kardashian used to describe her gift. Now, you can't expect Kanye to just gift his boo some perfume or just ANY kind of purse.....he gifted her with a hand-painted George Condo Birkin.
The Cut puts the specific bag's cost at $40,000, but has "no guess on what he paid Condo," calling it "the ugliest bag in the history of civilization."

West fans may find this painting similar to the art work on the artist's  2010 My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album cover. West commissioned Condo to do 5 separate album covers including one that was banned from iTunes and Wal-Mart.
Followers of Kim's on instagram didn't feel the same way about the bag calling it: "disgusting", "I guess it's true what they say money can't buy you class. YIKES!"
Although this present requires a certain kind of taste, Kim has been seen proudly sporting it while out and about...and in the end that's all that matters.
Just days later after Kimye were voted as America's Least Desirable Neighbors.

Justin Bieber Announces Retirement on Twitter

www.hdwallpapers3d.com

This may not be quite the Christmas gift Beliebers were hoping for.
On Christmas Eve the popstar tweeted some very cyptic tweets:



Hopefully  his account was hacked or is term "retiring" just means something else. His movie Believe hits theaters tomorrow. Could this be a possible publicity stunt?
Eonline says, "This news comes a week after his interview with Power 106 radio station where he said he was going to quit the biz. "

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom Head for Divorce


On Friday the 13th, nonetheless....Khloe Kardashian has filed for divorce.
The couple have been married for a little over 4 years after a 30 day courtship. The past 6 months, Kardashian and Odom have been suffering from marital woes stemming from Odom's drug abuse among cheating rumors.
I really thought this couple was going to make it, until the news of Lam Lam's drug habit were made public. Interesting though, I love Khloe...but if you watch old episodes of KUWTK she was very critical of her sisters' partners, but all the while she was covering up her husband's addiction.
Guess you never know what a person is actually going through.

"The papers  cited the usual "irreconcilable differences," according to TMZ, which first reported the news. Khloe's asking that the "Odom" be removed from her legal name, seeking no spousal support and requesting that he seek none from her, said the website, which also noted that there was a hard-core prenup in place, making the divorce a relatively simple thing.
Simple compared to, say, the drama that surrounded sister Kim's divorce from Kris Humphries after only 72 days of marriage. That split took more than a year and a half to finalize."

Beyonce and Jay Z Go Vegan


 
wikipedia.com

Jay Z announced via his blog Life + Times that starting December 3rd he was going to adopt a vegan lifestyle for 22 days. He decided to do this a day before his 44th birthday, and we all know how much 4 means to the couple.

"Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you’ve found the way.
On December 3rd, one day before my 44th birthday I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based!! This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a “plant-based breakfast” every day. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought…
Why now? There’s something spiritual to me about it being my 44th birthday and the serendipity behind the number of days in this challenge; 22 (2+2=4) coupled with the fact that the challenge ends on Christmas day…It just feels right!
So you can call it a spiritual and physical cleanse. I will post my progress… Any professional vegans out there that have any great food spots please help out! Please ha. I don’t know what happens after Christmas. A semi-vegan, a full plant-based diet? Or just a spiritual and physical challenge? We’ll see…
Best of luck and health!
P.S. B is also joining me."

After reading this I wanted to be just like the Carters and do the same thing, but accidentally ate a porkchop for dinner....hmm...maybe start tomorrow?

Kardashian Christmas Kard 2013


eonline.com
It's that time of year again and the Kardashian-Jenner clan have debuted their Khristmas card for 2013.
Instead of using family friend photographer like in previous years, this time the reality star family hired David LaChapelle.
Known for his extravagant photo-shoots and sets, this year's photo takes the cake!
Set in a Post-Apocalyptic world of pop-culture, shows tabloid covers of the family scattered on the floor, a broken staircase, Bruce Jenner's gold medals hanging around randomly and television screens flashing images of the Kardashian-Jenners as well as graffiti of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney.
This photo could actually portray the family's current situation considering Rob, Scott and Lamar aren't in the pictures and the public getting annoyed by the family. Could this photo signify the fall of the Kardashian-Jenner Dynasty? 
Maybe I'm just getting ahead of myself.
eonline.com
Anyway, the girls look absolutely gorgeous. However, if you watched the Kardashian Holiday special, there was some drama behind the shoot. LaChapelle didn't want to have Kourtney's kids in the shoot, Rob supposedly felt insecure about his weight and didn't want to be photographed. Scott opted out. Lamar was in the middle of marital issues with Khloe, so he was a no-show. Kanye was on tour. So, LaChapelle just suggested just the girls be in the photo. Bruce got his feelings hurt because the family has been doing this for over 20 years and just because he and Kris are separated, he felt they were still family.
So, in the end you have this photo minus Kanye, Lamar, Scott, Rob and Baby North- whom nobody addressed in the episode explaining why she wasn't in it.


eonline.com

This photo does not do Bruce any justice, you can barely see him, which signifies his relationship in the family anyway.

I love the costumes with all the glamor and of course, Mason and Penelope look absolutely adorable!

Actor Paul Walker Dies in Car Crash

smscs.com
Paul Walker died in a fiery car crash Saturday afternoon. The 40 year old actor was in the passenger seat of a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT who was driven by a racing team partner and friend, Roger Rodas. Rodas hit a tree and light pole says witnesses and the car burst into flames in Santa Clarita, about 30 miles north of Hollywood.
The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station confirms in a statement to Us Weekly:
"That there were two fatalities in a traffic collision at approximately 3:30 p.m. Saturday. When deputies arrived, the vehicle was engulfed in flames.

Walker leaves behind a 15 year old daughter, Meadow. She moved to California from Hawaii a few years ago to be closer to her father.

Pauly D is a Baby Daddy

via urbanislandz.com

The D in Pauly DelVecchio can now stand for "daddy".
The Jersey Shore star has revealed he has a baby girl just a few months old.
According to TMZ , "the mother is a 26 year old from Jersey"but hooked up with the DJ while in Vegas last year. "The mom has filed court docs in New Jersey to formally establish paternity." The celeb gossip site says they've learned the 33-year old has taken a DNA test and is indeed the father.

DelVecchio says he's "very excited"  and has "always wanted kids". "I'm proud I'm a father," the reality TV alum, real name Paul DelVecchio, told TMZ. "I am excited to embark on this new part of my life."

DelVecchio is the second castmember from the MTV reality show with a baby. Maybe his little girl will become BFFs with Snooki's son, Lorenzo.
I'm sure those little ones will be fist-pumpin' and GTL-ing before we know it.
Congrats to Pauly D. on his baby girl and for stepping in and being a dad!

Kris and Bruce Jenner Separate


e!online.com

Sad to say we saw this one coming, but didn't think it would actually happen.
E! confirms with the couple that they are indeed separating after 22 years of marriage.
"We are living separately and we are much happier this way," the pair exclusively tell E! News.
"But we will always have much love and respect for each other. Even though we are separated, we will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority."
Kris and Bruce are parents to two children together, Kendall and Kylie, and each have four kids from previous marriages.
.
For anybody who watches the show, can tell this marriage was a little rocky. However, just last year the two shutdown rumors of marital problems saying they just laughed them off.
This news comes on the heels of Khloe's own issues with Lamar and speculation E! may cancel the show due to tanking ratings. 
Here's hoping they work it out.

In classic RiRi fashion there's a lot of twerkin, dolla dolla bills, pretty girls....and just @$$ shakin'.

She's been teasing this video for days via her instagram, and it's finally here!
Notice the dollar bills......they have Ri's face on them.

I'm always looking for ways to save money, and since I spend a lot of my hard-earned cash on beauty products, I'd thought I would start there.

Britney Spears Announces Las Vegas Residency




Here it is!
The moment every Britney fan has been waiting for.
Brit Brit has announced her Piece of Me Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood.
Is it me? Or is Britney a little too young to have a residency in Las Vegas? I mean c'mon! She's not Rod Stewart.
The 31 year old Pop Goddess revealed on GMA that she will begin her 2 year residency in Sin City  with about 50 shows each year.
The news of Spears' residency comes just days after her latest single Work Bitch was leaked online.

Though I feel Britney is too young to have a residency, I'm for sure going to make it out to LV to see her perform! Her new single  Work Bitch is amazing!

Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" Breaks Vevo Record




She's not twerking this time. But Miley is still continuing to shock us. Her new single/video from her upcoming album Bangerz is a ballad that's heart-wrenching and you can't help but wonder if it's about her on-again-off-again relationship with Liam Hemsworth. Sources say Hemsworth wanted a "clean break" from Miley after her VMA performance, while others say the song totally isn't about him.
Whatever inspired the song, it's very powerful and you guys get to see Miley straddling a wrecking ball naked. What's even more uncomfortable is that her DAD tweeted in support of it!
Ewww.

However, there is GOOD news!
 In just one day Wrecking Ball reached 12.3 million view via Vevo which overtook One Direction's record-breaking feat with Best Song Ever which received 10.7 million views in its first day back in July. By the end of today it could be officially become the most-viewed video in 24 hours.
Congrats Miley!

Rumors Swirling Possible *NSYNC Reunion at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards

mtv.com
*singing* "Here we goooooooooooooooo!"
I'm dying right now!

The boyband hasn't done a performance in 10 years!

People Magazine reports:
According to the New York Post, which first reported the reunion, his former bandmates were all spotted in the VIP section of Timberlake's concert with Jay-Z at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Friday night, alongside Timberlake's wife, Jessica Biel, and mom Lynn Harless.
Sunday's performance will mark the first time the bandmates have performed together on TV since the 2003 Grammy Awards, when they took part in a tribute to the Bee Gees, reports the Biography Channel.

'NSYNC sat at the top of the pop world for much of the late '90s and early 2000s – at times alongside rival boy band Backstreet Boys – and throughout their career they sold tens of millions of records to their ardent fans.

They went on hiatus after their 2002 Celebrity tour, but never ruled out the possibility of getting back together.

"I think when the stars are aligned, the time is right, and all five of us have our heads on straight and know the direction we're going as a band, it'll eventually happen," Kirkpatrick told PEOPLE in 2009. "If not, I know we'll be best friends forever."


J.T. will be honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award at this year's VMA's, and leads in overall nominations.
The awards ceremony will be the first in Brooklyn at the Barclay's Center.

I'm so juiced, right now!!
It looks like this year's Video Music Awards will be like the ceremonies of yesteryear!

Funniest Kendrick Lamar Post-"Control" Memes







While perusing the interwebs during the aftermath of Kendrick Lamar's verse on Control, I've come across the most hilarious memes. I hope you enjoy them as much as I've been!

Public Reacts to Kendrick Lamar's Verse on "Control"


Kendrick Lamar has started a lot of drama in the hip-hop world, and even...the NBA?
Former Los Angeles Lakers' coach Phil Jackson fired off this tweet in response to Lamar's verse mentioning the legend's name:
@kendricklamar it’s okay to be cocky and sure, but we all need somebody to lean on. Let’s just call it mentoring.
Of course, this is a calm response to Lamar's verse, which aimed this line at Jackson:
Who the f**k y’all thought it’s supposed to be?
If Phil Jackson came back, still no coachin’ me
I’m uncoachable, I’m unsociable.
The whole verse on his collaboration on Big Sean's Control sparked much controversy among rappers and the public.
Here's the entire verse that caught attention:
onwardstate.com
I heard the barbershops be in great debates all the time
Bout who's the best MC? Kendrick, Jigga and Nas
Eminem, Andre 3000, the rest of y'all
New niggas just new niggas, don't get involved
I'm usually homeboys with the same niggas I'm rhymin' wit
But this is hip hop and them niggas should know what time it is
And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale
Pusha T, Meek Millz, A$AP Rocky, Drake
Big Sean, Jay Electron', Tyler, Mac Miller
I got love for you all but I'm tryna murder you niggas
Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you niggas
They dont wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you niggas
What is competition? I'm tryna raise the bar high
Who tryna jump and get it? You better off tryna skydive
Out the exit window of 5 G5’s with 5 grand
With your granddad as the pilot he drunk as fuck tryna land
With the hand full of arthritis and popping prosthetic leg
Bumpin Pac in the cockpit so the shit that pops in his head
Is an option of violence, someone heard the stewardess said

That your parachute is a latex condom hooked to a dread

Interesting how rappers NOT mentioned in this verse are firing at Lamar, and those include Lupe Fiasco, B.o.B., and Joell Ortiz.
In SLR 2, Lupe Fiasco rapped, "N---- you ain't Nas, n---- you ain't Jay Z/You will respect me, you will reject me/But I've done so much, no matter how far you go, you will reflect me."

According to MTV, "B.o.B.'s How 2 Rap included not only his boasts — 'I know that I'm shinin', I know that I'm shinin'/Don't worry, 'cause you can find shade in my shadow" — but also his instrumental prowess, when he launched into a guitar solo after saying, 'Give me my guitar pick, I'll show you s---.' "
Brooklyn MC Joell Ortiz fired with, "Homey, you ain't the king of New York, you're the next thing on my fork."

Meanwhile, others felt Lamar was just waking up the game...reminding all of these emcees to stay on their toes.

Diddy's RevoltTV tweeted:

Hip Hop was born out of competition and raised by battles. This is what Music needs. More people who want to be the BEST not BEST FRIENDS.#CONTROL

Big Sean tweeted:
@kendricklamar so mad on that song, ha ha... Sheesh on there like a scientist! Thanks u rappin ass niggas

@Pusha T
I hear u loud and clear my nigga... @kendricklamar


Gladiator Shit"...Gotta give the people what they want .

If I can't do no more nouns or verbs ima start comin with the wildest adjective bars that anyone has ever heard.

I don't feel like dissed anybody. He just has moved up to another level. Y'all late overly dedicated nigga! Bruh been fire!!!
Even rap OG Ice T got in the mix tweeting:
I love how ONE verse woke Hip Hop the FUCK up.. It's been a LONG time since people talked about ANYTHING someone said in their rhyme....Hey, Hip Hop stripes are born in battle.. Me and LL did our thing back in the day.. It's part of the game.

Personally, I think Kendrick is just being an emcee and doing what emcee's do...battle.
It looks like the rappers he mentioned are really taking this personally.
He didn't say anything terrible, just that he wants to be the top player in the game!
Personally, this is my favorite Control.

New Music:"Roar"-Katy Perry


After so many teasers, Katy Perry has released her single Roar.
It comes with a cute lyric video, which you can sing along to! The lyrics are displayed in a unique way, using part text/ part emoji and these are all displayed on an iPhone.
Gotta love technology!
This song has such a huge message, it almost seems like Perry is sticking it to ex- Russel Brand.
Good for you, boo!

New Music: Lady Gaga's "Applause"

Put your paws up little monsters!
Our mother has FINALLY released some new music. well, it didn't help that it was leaked.
In her teaser for Applause, she declares herself over....well, the 47 second clip is labeled" Lady Gaga is Over: A Film by Haus of Gaga. 
The teaser says: 

"If you don't like pop music, you should turn this off."
"Lady Gaga is no longer relevant."
"Ever since Born This Way, she's a flop."
"DO NOT buy her new single 'Applause' on iTunes."
"Give her no A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E."
"DON'T dance to the song at all."

But once you hear this song....you can't help BUT applause!

Katy Perry's Teasers for "Roar"



Okay, enough with the teasers already!
Can it be August 12th yet because I cannot wait to hear Katy Perry's new song Roar.
The anticipation from these teasers is killing me!
I think having teasers for fans is an amazing marketing tool artists have been using lately.
Roar is the new single off of Perry's upcoming album Prism, which is due out in October.
From the looks of these short videos, Perry is saying goodbye to her Cotton-Candyland phase and entering back to her roots Circa 2007-8!

A More Chic Way to Get Your News- The Skimm


TheSkimm.com


My real-life job is in local news, so it's my responsibility to know a little of everything.
Obviously, my main love is pop-culture and entertainment news....but I'm also required to know things on the local, national and international level.
With my hectic schedule, it's hard to know sit down and read the New York Times everyday...so I rely on my Associated Press and CNN iphone apps as well as Twitter to find out the latest news.
However, that all changed when I discovered The Skimm.
Every morning I'm greeted with an email in my inbox from the ladies at The Skimm who break down the latest happenings in the world in a way my best girlfriends would!
Want to know what the heck is going on with the embassy situation in Yemen? Not quite clear what's happening with Edward Snowden? Do you even know who he is? Don't worry, The Skimm will help you out, and get you in the know in NO time!

I first found out about this amazing site via Hitha on the Go's blog! From this post I was instantly signed up.
The two ladies behind the weekly newsletter used to work in news at NBC!
So, these two know what they're talking about!

Kanye West Debuts "Black Skinhead" Music Video



Check out this semi-frightening video for Yeezy's Black Skinhead from his latest album Yeezus.
It kind of reminds me of Power, where it's all avant-garde.

Throwback Monday



Lastnight I saw Boyz II Men, 98* and New Kids on the Block in concert.
My inner 5 year old to my inner tween was ECSTATIC!
More on that concert later, but here's my throwback.

James Gandolfini Dies in Italy at 51

pastemagazine.com
HBO confirms Wednesday that the star of The Sopranos has died in Italy, possibly of a heart attack.
Gandolfini was only 51 years old, and was in Italy to attend the Taormina Film Festival.
"The New Jersey-born actor is survived by his wife, Deborah Lin, their daughter and a son from a previous marriage."
Such sad news.
Prayers go out to his family.

Kanye West Debuts "American Psycho" Inspired Trailer for "Yeezus"



If you're not too excited to buy Yeezy's new album to help feed his un-named child, this trailer may sway your decision.
It stars Scott "Lord" Disick and Kim K.'s BFF Jonathan Cheban mimicking a famous scene from the movie American Psycho.

Personally, this kind of freaked me out. Because, along with some of the titles on the record....and this trailer....it seems like Mr. West is angry....but then again....isn't he always?

Miley Cyrus Debuts Video for "We Can't Stop"



Wow!
This video is a complete mind-F*$k.
It's just hard to see Hannah Montana all grown up, but the song is great and the party in the video looks like a blasty blast. It light-weight reminds me of this Fiona Apple video.

Jay-Z Announces New Album "Magna Carta Holy Grail"

For those of you watching the NBA Finals Sunday night, you most likely caught the commercial that Jay-Z will be releasing his 12th studio album this summer!
For those of you who missed it:


Makes sense, considering he'll be kicking off the Legends tour with Justin Timberlake this summer too.
What makes this album unique is that Jay will be teaming up with Samsun to promote the album.
Hov is such a marketing genius!
According to the New York Times:
"... the company is giving away a million copies to its cellphone subscribers as a promotion.
Jay-Z, the Brooklyn rapper, announced the deal with a three-minute commercial during halftime of the NBA finals on Sunday night. The album, “Magna Carta Holy Grail,” will come out on July 7, but it will be made available free three days earlier to Samsung subscribers through a mobile application."

Throwback Monday



Where is Monifah these days?

Throwback Monday



This video is hilarious, because I find the collaboration between Michael and Paul strangely phenomenal...and also the fact that Michael's love interest in the video is LaToya....yes...Michael's sister.
Woof.

Amanda Bynes Tweets RiRi "Chris Brown Beat You Because You're Not Pretty Enough"

Man, what some people do for attention.
As if her poor wig choices, horny tweets to an actor turned rapper, and her arrests weren't enough.

Homegirl is going from bad to worse.
Late Sunday morning the former Amanda Show star tweeted Rihanna:

Of course, Rihanna wasn't going to let Amanda, please throw any shade her way.
Surely the #rihannanavy will have A LOT to say to Miss Bynes via the Twitterverse.
I'm still sticking to my conspiracy theory that Bynes is pulling a Joaquin Phoenix.

Kaurdashian Pick: "The Great Gatsby" Soundtrack



The roaring twenties are making a visit to the new millenium, and they brought Leonardo DiCaprio with them!
Sure, we all loathed reading The Great Gatsby our junior year of high school...well, that was until we ACTUALLY read the book and realized this was a great story. You may have taken the easy route and watched the original Gastby movie with Robert Redford, but either way you know the story.
Not only does this Baz Luhrrman directed version just look plain cool, it has an even cooler soundtrack to go along with it.
This soundtrack includes the Jay-Z, Beyonce, Andre 3000, Jack White, Lana Del Rey, Fergie, Q-Tip, etc.
Check out the Emeli Sande's version of "Crazy in Love" at the very bottom! It's what the song would've sounded like if it debuted in 1929!

Here are a few of my favorite songs on the soundtrack:
