The best gossip is the kind where the word “scandal” enters the picture. With lives as dramatic as the music and movies they take center stage in, this week’s gossip corner focuses on stars behaving badly.
Britney Spear recently announced her “Femme Fatale” tour partner, Enrique Iglesis, much to the excitement of their fans. Mere hours after the announcement had gone out to the world, Iglesias pulled the plug on the deal. Feeling that he was “too big” to be an opener, his massive ego caused him to back-out of the tour. It seems like Iglesias has given the pop princess the cold shoulder.
In what may be yet another “attack of the ego” Miley Cyrus goes off on her fellow pop idols like Rebecca Black and Justin Bieber. Instead of celebrating their meteoric and astonishing rise to stardom, she reduces them to mere “Youtube stars.” Wow. She goes further to say, “It should be harder to be an artist, You shouldn’t just be able to put a song on Youtube and go out on tour.” Sounds like someone is trying out for a role on Mean Girls!
Rihanna mouths off about her sex life in the latest issue of Rolling Stone Magazine. She talks about how she likes to be “spanked,” her favorite toys, etc. Rihanna, keep it to yourself! The world doesn’t need to know things like that.
When celebrities are dressed to the nines on the red carpet, it makes us wonder what they look like in their down time. Now, with paparazzi out-and-about, celebrities don’t really get “down time” like we do, but they still put together some pretty neat, casual outfits when they aren’t dressing for the red carpet. Check out our round-up of celebrity fashion, straight from the street!
You’re in luck because there is a TON of new stock at BagInc (including some very cute jewelry). There are so many styles that stick out to us this week, but this purple fringe So Italian Woven Hobo is somethin’ else! This is an incredibly eye-catching bag. It channels the sophistication of the classic hobo, but comes in a beautiful shade of deep purple, with woven detail on the front. The fringe accent makes for one trendy bag. We are in love! There is also a black version of this bag that is just as gorgeous.
The color block trend is in for spring, and celebrities are showing us how to wear this style right! You can go for a full on color block ensemble, or just mix and match bright shades for your own spin on the trend. At BagInc you can shop our selection of handbags by color. Check out your favorite color and add one of our handbags to your wardrobe to get this stylish look.
In this week’s edition of Gossip Corner we bring you news from all over Hollywood. Spring is in full bloom and that means lots of catfights and baby-having. Our favorite!
Rachel Zoe gave birth this week to a baby boy. Instead of following Hollywood traditions of choosing horrifying baby names (Pilot Inspektor, anyone?), Zoe picks a reasonable name for her son: Skyler Morrison Berman. See, Hollywood! Is that so hard?
In the white-hot new gossip book by Neil Strauss entitled, “Everyone Loves You When You’re Dead: Journeys Into Fame and Madness,” the author claims that Paris Hilton is a racist! Apparently, in an interview Hilton did with Strauss, she claimed that she “can’t stand black men.” Now there’s some juicy gossip to sink your teeth into. Hilton is outraged at the claim, and is planning to take massive legal action against the author.
It must be so hard to be young in Hollywood. This week, news leaked that Taylor Swift has more than her fair share of stalkers. Thankfully, when you’re as famous as Swift, you can afford a whole cadre of bodyguards for protection.
Chris Brown has now issued a formal apology for his enraged diatribe after his Good Morning America interview. This rant was made very public, and Brown once again found himself in the middle of an enormous (and well-deserved) backlash. Here is the transcript for his apology. Do you think he’s sincere?
“First of all, I just wanna apologise to anybody who was startled in the office, anybody who was offended or really disappointed in my actions, because I was disappointed with the way I acted.
“A lot of people don’t know what went down, and obviously when I do shows or when I do interviews, we always send out a talking point sheet.
“As the interview proceeded, it was kinda thrown off. I was thrown off by it. I felt like they told us this just so they could get us on the show so they can exploit me.
“So I took it very, very hard and I really kinda kept my composure throughout the whole interview, although you can see me upset, I kept my composure, I did my performance.
“And when I got back (stage) I just let off steam. I didn’t physically hurt anyone, I didn’t try to hurt anyone, I just wanted to release the anger that I had inside me because I felt that I worked so hard for this music and… I felt like people kept just trying to take it away from me. So yes, I got very emotional, and I wanna apologise for acting like that.”
