Mariah Carey and Fiance James Packer Break Up

eonline
Aww, say it isn't so!
TMZ and other entertainment reports are saying Mariah Carey and her billionaire fiance James Packer have broken up. However, a lot of the reports are saying they may be trying to work it out.
Rumors have been swirling that Mimi's extravagant spending was to blame, while other reports are claiming it stemmed from an argument on a yacht in Greece where Packer did something "very bad" to Carey's assistant.
Page Six sources a statement Mimi's camp sent to Entertainment Tonight saying:
Mariah and James had a fight in Greece, and have not seen each other since. The fight was not because of any cheating allegations or excessive spending by Mariah. James is one of the most successful businessmen in the world. They are trying to work it out. Right now, they’re not sure if they will stay together. They are discussing it, and plan to release an official statement together about their future.
Other gossip is that Mimi's relationship with one of her backup dancers on her upcoming reality show for E! was to blame, Packer's mom didn't like her and she didn't support Packer when he attended his sister's 50th birthday.
Some reports are pro-Mimi and anti-Packer claiming the 46 year old songstress claims the 49 year old Aussie billionaire hasn't been mentally present and Mariah's been feeling abandoned.
Regardless, over the weekend at Mariah's halloween party, Packer was noticebably absent while Nick Cannon was there with dem babies.

Mariah and James met at a movie premiere in Colorado in 2014 and became engaged in January. This would've been the 3rd marriage for both of them.
Mimi has been famously married to Sony music exec Tommy Mottola and then later Nick Cannon. James' exes aren't relevant here.
Here's hoping the couple make it work and this is all just rumors.

Beyonce and Jay Z: Date Night at the Warriors Season Opener

Twitter: @lovebscott

Warriors fans flocked to Oracle arena on Tuesday night excited for the NBA season opener and to see their new addition Kevin Durant take to the court for the regular season.
However, these fans got an extra treat!
Beyonce and Jay Z arrived in the second half to take in the game.
I'm assuming their Dubs fans.
BTW, I'm mad Bey was in the Bay...and I didn't know until hours later.
The couple looked fresh to death with Beyonce rocking an Ivy Park parka, green metallic sock boots and of course, her own dad hat featuring an emoji of her Hold Up ensemble.

Justin Timberlake Breaks the Law By Posting a Poll Selfie

Oops!
While trying to motivate fans to get their civic duty on, Justin Timberlake unintentionally broke the law.
“Hey! You! Yeah, YOU! I just flew from LA to Memphis to #rockthevote !!! No excuses, my good people! There could be early voting in your town too. If not, November 8th! Choose to have a voice! If you don't, then we can't HEAR YOU! Get out and VOTE! #excerciseyourrighttovote," read Timberlake's now-deleted post on Instagram.

Why is this against the law you asked?
TMZ reports Tennessee law prohibits voters from taking photos and/or videos while at the polls.
“The Shelby County District Attorney’s Office was made aware of a possible violation of election law,” the spokesperson said on Tuesday afternoon. “The DA’s office is currently reviewing these allegations.”
Since then, the DA's office has told TMZ:
The official told us ... the matter was "under review," but he now says he made a mistake. He says although the D.A. was aware of the selfie, no law enforcement agent, election commission official or police officer had filed a formal complaint, so the matter wasn't on the table for review.
Poor JT, he was just trying to encourage his fans to vote! 
Before you commit the same crime, double check your state's rules before you snap your selfie.

Scottie and Larsa Pippen File for Divorce After 19 years of Marriage


TMZ.COM
Damn.
I didn't see this coming.
Supposedly, Future is involved as well.
Girl. bye.
 TMZ is reporting that after 19 years of marriage, NBA legend Scottie Pippen and his wife Larsa of Real Housewives of Miami fame and Kim Kardashian's bestie are filing for divorce.
In a statement posted on the celebrity gossip site, Larsa's camp says:
"After careful consideration and 19 years together, Larsa and Scottie have each filed for dissolution of their marriage. Although they are no longer to be married, Larsa remains hopeful that she and Scottie will always do what is best for their 4 beautiful children and jointly raise them with love and respect."
"She would like to thank everyone for their understanding and kindly ask for privacy from the media during this difficult time of transition for her family."
The former Chicago Bull filed for divorce in Florida earlier this week. The couple have been married since 1997 and have 4 children together.
There have been various reports that Larsa has been seeing Future, but since that information has been released Larsa claims they're just friends.
Future should permanently stay friend-zoned.

Kim Kardashian Celebrates 36th Birthday Quietly; Friends & Family Show Love on Social Media



kimkardashianwest.com
Since Kim Kardashian West is taking a break, her birthday this year is definitely quieter as she rings in her 36th year.
There's no birthday appearance at Tao in Las Vegas, no yacht, no preggo-Kim party and no posts on social media from the reality star.
Instead her friends and family gathered around and supported her on social media, giving all of us fans a much needed dose of Kim.
Husband Kanye West posted the sweetest 5 minute video on Twitter featuring home movies of a young Kimmy with her dad and paternal grandparents.
I'm not going to lie....I did have a lump in my throat.
The Kardashians definitely approved. Khloe called him "husband of the year" for this and Rob expressed this is why he loves 'Ye.
 

Khloe took to her website to honor her big sis by showing all of her fave looks her sister's rocked recently, then posted on Instagram like her sisters, brother and momager Kris.

Kanye Goes on Rant at Seattle Concert and is Mad at Jay Z

My personal pic from the WTT throne in Dec. 2011

So there's a little drama within the Throne.
At the Seattle concert of his Saint Pablo tour, Kanye goes on one of his famous rants but this time it's regarding one of his most famous friends...Jay Z.
Ye claims Hov didn't call and check on him after his wife, Kim Kardashian West, was robbed at gunpoint in Paris.
He then continues on how North and Blue haven't even played together.



He then goes on to say "there will never be a Watch the Throne 2" due to "Apple/Tidal bullshit".
Insert broken heart emoji.
We all know Jay and 'Ye killed it on their joint album and tour back in 2011 when they released Watch the Throne.
He goes on to explain that was the reason why Jay only had 2 short lines in Drake's Pop Style, it was because of his business with Tidal. Other reports have surfaced because it has to do with Meek being on RocNation, which manages his career....which is Jay's company. So there were issues with loyalty and what-not.
Here's the rant transcribed:


There will never be 'Watch The Throne 2,' you know why? Because that's why I wasn't on this song, I wasn't on this song 'cause of Hov. 'Cause of this Tidal-Apple bulls---. And this s--- be getting me tight every time I perform this motherf-----. That y'all didn't get what y'all were supposed to get with me and Drake on this song 'cause of some Tidal – Apple bulls---. It's some political s---, some s--- about percentages on songs.


via GIPHY
Since the release of this video, Page Six released an article with tons of tea claiming Jay can't stand 'Ye and has tolerated him in small doses all of these years.
Basically, their friendship isn't what we all see.
Regardless, no one wants to feel like their bestie doesn't have their back, but Kanye does require a lot of...energy...
I hope these two can work it out, they may beautiful music together.

Shopaholism: Khloe Kardashian Debuts 'Good American' Denim Line

IG: @khloekardashian

Vanity Fair said it best.
Khloe wants to make America great again, by making your butt look great at the same time!



Khloe is co-owner of a new denim brand along with her business partner Emma Grede. They decided to collaborate on a denim brand "made to fit women, not the other way around".
For months Khlo-$ has been teasing and preparing us for her denim launch and now it's finally here!
We all know shopping for new jeans is just as favorable as shopping for a new swimsuit, so Khloe decided to help all of her sisters out around the world and give us a jean that would make us look fab no matter what size.

A video posted by KhloΓ© (@khloekardashian) on
Good American has a variety of fits and washes and range from sizes 0-24. They definitely look like jeans the KarJenners would rock eating salads and drinking green tea while strolling around Calabasas.
Snatch up this brand at Nordstrom or the brand's site.
The prices are a little steep, but competitive with the other designer jeans.

Lady Gaga Releases New Single A-YO

I must say I prefer this more than Perfect Illusion.
Sorry not sorry
This single is giving me 2008-20010 Gaga pop vibes that I've missed.                                           This is Gaga's third single from her highly anticipated album Joanne which comes out Friday October 21st.

Hilary Duff Giving "Casper Meets Wendy" Realness 18 years later

Snapchat: hilaryduff

Actress Hilary Duff gave 80s and 90s babies alike major nostalgia all thanks to a recent Snapchat lens.
The former child star revisited her role as Wendy Witch some 18 years later.
I can't believe this movie is 18 years old.
Who would've known that cute little Wendy would've been giving us major sass and fashion-inspo as Lizzie McGuire three years later?

Lindsay Lohan is a Nightclub Owner

IG: Lindsay Lohan

Finally, a job that she'll excel at without any problems at all.
Right?
Actress Lindsay Lohan is the part-owner of a club in Athens rightfully called LOHAN.
A photo posted by Lindsay Lohan (@lindsaylohan) on
According to TMZ:
LOHAN, the nightclub, is opening this weekend in Athens ... and we're told it's all thanks to LiLo's pal, Dennis Papageorgiou. The Greek restaurateur is the owner, but we're told Lindsay's getting a big chunk of the profits, aka ... back end.
A LOHAN spokesperson tells us Dennis came up with the idea in July -- the same month Lindsay and ex-fiance Egor split -- and Lindsay was down with it, naturally.
We're told the decor is "abandoned factory" chic with baroque detailing, whatever that means. Best of all ... there's a standard VIP area, and also a completely secluded VVIP area. That's not a joke. Think Lindsay meets 'Night at the Roxbury.'
We're told she'll make appearances 2 or 3 times a month. Opa!

Umm, I want to go to Greece right now!

Kim Kardashian West's Assistant Speaks Out on Behalf of the Reality Star

kimkardashianwest.com
It's been weeks since we've all heard from Kim Kardashian West since her scary ordeal in Paris. Since Kardashian West has been radio silent, many fans were hoping she'd keep us update via her app and website. However, that's been quiet too unlike that of her sisters' sites.
On Monday afternoon Kardashian West's assistant Steph Shep updated fans on what to expect moving forward on the site while Kim is taking "some much needed time off".
Shep says Kim's family and friends will update the site with exclusives!
It's been no secret Kim has been keeping an ultra-low profile since being gagged and bound during a robbery in Paris while there for fashion week.
Just last week she was spotted in LA in a very un-Kardashian-like fashion wearing just a baggy hoodie and Vans.

Beyonce Keeps Singing Even with an Ear Injury


What a professional!
At the Tidal X: 1015 concert in Brooklyn on Saturday night, Queen Bey gave a phenomenal performance with a mix of 6 Inch and Haunted.
While singing her heart out at the Barclays Center, her superhuman braid ripped out one of her earrings causing her ear to bleed.
Yes, you read that right.
Beyonce was singing, while blood was dripping down her ear.
She just gently wiped it away without missing a beat.
She even came back to perform All Night without even a Band-Aid!

The Tidal X: 1015 concert benefits the Robin Hood Foundation, which is an organization to raise money to end poverty in NYC.

While Bey was killing it onstage, she didn't let the audience forget that they had to vote on November 8th. 
"I know this year has been extremely hard for us," she told the crowd. "I know sometimes I've felt powerless and frustrated. There's been so much negativity and nonsense. It can be easy to feel hopeless and want to just block the world out, but doing nothing right now is not an option, y'all. I know it seems like things are bad, but if you think they can't get worse, just ask your grandparents."
"Remember, Barack Obama is our president," Queen Bey continued. "You made that happen. Young people made that happen. We are not helpless. The fire is still burning. Please go out and vote this November. So many people have died and sacrificed so much for us to have our voice. We have to use it. Get in formation. Use our voices to do something great for our children."

Throwback Monday

                                     Happy Bosses Day to all my bossy bitches out there.

Rod Stewart is now a Knight


via Penny Lancaster's Instagram: @penny.lancaster

It was a great day for my family...and singer Rod Stewart's, of course. He's now Sir Roderick David Stewart.
The British rockstar was knighted on Tuesday by Prince William at Buckingham Palace. In a nod to his Scottish heritage, Rod "wore tartan trousers and a scarlet-trimmed military style tunic". The 71 year old singer was honored for his "services to music and charity" according to the Associated Press.
For those who know me, know that my family LOVES Rod Stewart. He's literally an honorary member of my family.
Accompanied by his own little family, wife Penny Lancaster and his two youngest children Alastair and Aiden, Rod says he and Prince William  "talked about music, and he said `It's great that you're still going' and I said: `I have to -- I've got eight children!'

Rod's oldest son Sean took to social media to congratulate his old man.

Talking more about his conversation with the Prince, Rod says "he congratulated me on my long career, and I said how happy this made me," Stewart said. "I just wish my mum and dad had been here to see it."
"When the award was announced by Queen Elizabeth II earlier this year, Stewart said it was "a monumental honor." He added: 'I thank her majesty and promise to `wear it well.'"

Throwback Monday

                                  In honor of Solange's latest milestone.

Solange Knowles Gets First #1 Album with "A Seat at the Table"


These Knowles sisters are something else!
First Beyonce gives us life with Lemonade, and then Solange drops her a surprise album of her own and it's now at number one on the Billboard 200. A Seat at the Table beat out Bon Iver's much anticipated album, 22, A Million.
Solange Knowles has long been in the shadow of big sister, Beyonce, but with this new album of hers she's creating a lane for herself this time.
Elevator jokes aside, Solange's credit for her vocals, art, vision and lyrics has long been overdue.


This album took Solange 4 years to create and the songs everyone seems to like are Cranes in the Sky, Don't Touch my Hair, Weary and Mad. Cranes in the Sky was actually written 8 years ago when Raphael Saadiq handed her a CD with some beats and she wrote the track in her hotel room that night.

The album has Lil Wayne, Kelela, Q-Tip, The-Dream, Dev Hynes, Master P and Kelly Rowland. The album gives me deep soul vibes, but Knowles also sprinkles in some spoken word especially around race. She has a snippet of her mom, Tina Knowles-Lawson, describing how she's always loved being black and one from her father, Matthew Knowles, on how mad he was being roughed up by the cops and the Klu Klux Klan as a young man in the South.

Solange even released a behind-the-scenes documentary on how A Seat at the Table came to fruition.
Facebook: Solange



Not only are all of us regular folk in love with the album, so are celebrities.
Missy Elliot, Calvin Harris, Lena Dunham, Rashida Jones and Joe Budden are among the many who are loving this album.

Congrats, Solange!

Confessions of a Beauty Product Junkie: Selena for MAC

My haul

Anything for Selenas!

Since I was in Miami when the MAC's Selena makeup line was on sale online, I was determined to cop at least a lipstick from the special edition collection.
After work I stopped by my local Macy's to see if I could snag something, and luckily the line wasn't so bad.
The only things that were left were the three lipsticks: Como La Flor, Amor Prohibido and Dreaming of You and the bronzer. In line you were given a number and then a MAC girl was there to take your order, I was only allowed to buy one of each and if I wanted to more, I had to go back in line.
I ordered one of each.
A video posted by Christine KAURdashian (@christinekaurdashian) on
Before you judge, it wasn't all for me. I stopped at the department store on my way to my hair appointment. Since my stylist is one of my BFFs, I got the bronzer and Como La Flor for her, while I kept the other two shades. Remember, I was lucky just to get one lipstick?

I was joking with friends that I was the only East-Indian in line for this, but it didn't matter to me. Yes, I wasn't aware of Selena's greatness when she was alive. Yes, I wasn't a fan until the movie starring Jennifer Lopez opened my eyes to Selena's talent and beauty.
However, I did understand why this was such a moment for fans of hers, especially the ones who have been riding with her since day 1.
This line all started when Selena fans started an online petition in 2015 asking the makeup giant to honor the late-Tejano superstar.
buzzfeed.com

Months later, MAC answered the call and announced the makeup would debut in October of 2016. The line worked closely with Selena's sister, Suzette, to make sure the line embodied her sister.
buzzfeed.com
While I was in line I couldn't help BUT get emotional, especially when they started blasting her music from the speakers, because this was such a huge moment for a star whose life was taken way too soon. It's incredible this happened 21 years after her untimely death.
I'm sure she was definitely smiling down on this entire event to know that all of her fans still love her and that she has gained some new ones since she left earth. 
What also touched me is her sister's instagram post on the day of the in-store launch.

Kim Kardashian Paris Robbery Drama

Kim Kardashian with Bodyguard Pascal Duvier in Paris via Instagram
Just when I decide to take a vacation, one of the biggest stories involving Kim Kardashian broke and no, she didn't put Taylor Swift on blast.
At around 3am on Monday while in Paris for Fashion Week, Kim Kardashian was allegedly upstairs in her room at the HΓ΄tel de PourtalΓ¨s when about 5 masked men dressed as cops zip tied the reality star's hands and feet and gagged her with duct tape and locked her in the bathroom while robbing her of all her jewelry and two cell phones. Most famously, they took the large ring Kanye just gifted her. The loss is estimated at $10 million.
Kim was able to slip through the zip ties and cry for help. Her rep confirmed she was held at gunpoint and was unharmed but badly shaken.
The robbers gained access to Kardashian's room via the night concierge who was handcuffed. 
According to reports, Kardashian West was without a body guard. He was with sisters Kendall and Kourtney. It's been said Kanye has maintained a semi-permanent residence at the Hotel for about 5 years, so Kim felt safe without security.
Fans were given a hint of the news when Kanye had to abruptly end his set at the Meadows Festival in Queens, New York.  While performing Heartless, Kanye rushed off the stage after telling fans he there was a family emergency. 

The pair reunited in New Jersey at the Teterboro airport and have had Presidential-like security ever since at their Manhattan abode.

Numerous reports have come out that Kardashian West feared the suspects were going to rape her as she wasn't fully clothed. There have also been rumors that this was an inside job within the hotel or within her security. There has also been talk that this is just another scheme hatched by the KarJenners to keep their names in the limelight and to promote their upcoming season.
Personally, I believe this really happened and it frightens me that this public entity doesn't have security 24/7. I was surprised and glad to see other celebs and people sticking up for Kim on how this is no laughing matter.

Meanwhile, Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld criticized Kim on how she flaunts her wealth, even after posting a photo saying he's standing with her.
The fashion icon told the Associated Press "(She is) too public, too public — we have to see in what time we live. You cannot display your wealth then be surprised that some people want to share it."
 He added, "I don't understand why (Kardashian) was in a hotel with no security and things like this. If you are that famous and you put all your jewelry on the net you go to hotels where nobody can come near to the room."

Caitlyn took to Instagram
While big sis Kourtney took to Twitter with this bible verse:
Here's hoping Kim comes out of this stronger and smarter with her security. She's got 2 babies to be around for. I can only imagine what it's like to overcome something like this.
Some of Kim's family has broken their silence to show support for her.
