If you’re reading this, there are chances that you enjoy two things 1) celebrities, and 2) reading blogs. We combined these two interests for you to bring you our latest blog post: the best celebrity blogs. Most blogs are just updated by PR people and have little to do with the celeb other than announcements about appearances. These blogs go the extra mile, are often written by the celebs themselves and are interesting, to boot! So, if you have a few hours to kill, we recommend you check out the following:
Britney Spears is on the cusp of one of the biggest comebacks in celebrity history. Ever since she broke up with Justin Timberlake, this troubled star has waded through a river of bad times, and sometimes, she was on the verge of drowning. A string of poorly chosen significant others and a paparazzi hellbent on destroying her image almost did the young star in. She’s made several unsuccessful comeback attempts before, but under such strict public scrutiny, she failed every time.
She has finally stabilized under the care of a good PR team, no family drama, a good relationship and a solid new album. She is about to embark on her first tour in years, and it’s actually much-anticipated. She also looks radiant and healthy. This is the best Britney we’ve seen since she was a teenager, and it’s a testament to her resilience that she made it this far and is still kicking butt. You go girl!!
The ultimate in romantic gestures goes to a 17-year old boy. He’s no ordinary 17-year old, though. We’re speaking, of course, of Justin Bieber and his recent grand romantic evening that he planned for his girlfriend, Selena Gomez. Bieber secretly reserved the entire Staples Center LA for a private screening of Titanic. Gomez had no idea that he had been planning this and was completely overwhelmed. Keep it up, Bieber! That’s just the kind of romantic move that will keep the girls in love with him for years to come.
Speaking of popular hotties, Taylor Lautner is single again, ladies! Lautner had been dating his Abduction co-star, Lily Collins. The two had been going strong since the start of filming. Unfortuntaely, just in time for premieres, Lautner has unceremoniously dumped Collins. That’s going to make the press junkets pretty awkward!
Newlywed Kim Kardashian has an unpleasant mess on her hands. Her sex tape is set to be released by Vivid Entertainment. An anonymous donor offered to buy the tape for $20 million dollars, but Vivid refused the bid. It is uncertain when Vivid will release the tape, but there is talks that they would be willing to sell it back to Kim Kardashian for the right price.
It always makes tabloid headlines when a celebrity undergoes a radical transformation in appearance. Think Britney shaving her head, Janet Jackson’s weight gain, etc. This time, the celebrity at the center of a weight-loss storm is socialite Peaches Geldorf. Known for her free-flowing, hippie ways and boho fashions, Peaches has always been a rather normal looking celebrity as far as weight goes. But, at New York Fashion Week she debuted a new look, which showed dramatic weight loss.
Tabloids speculate that it is due to drugs, since she is known for having a bit of a habit. However, she insists it is due to diet and exercise and tweeted the following.
“Eating most massive bowl of cornflakes ever. So many cereal choices but in the end u can’t beat a good ole’ fashioned bowl of corn flakes…”
“And yes, ive seen ludicrous tabloid ‘reports’ 2day &no,im not thin cause im a crazed junkie from hell.Im thin cause I eat right.”
“But I do agree that ‘crazed junkie from hell’ is far more interesting than ‘I like to eat fruit and veg more than cheeseburgers.”
The sad part is that anyone cares in the first place. It’s a systemic problem, one that is at the root of a lot of ill in society. That we place so much importance on anyone’s weight is at fault here. Then, if someone loses a drastic amount of weight, we get all riled up. Peaches Geldorf is damned if she does and damned if she doesn’t.
Robert De Niro’s daughter is in the news this week for a recent public outburst of anger against her ex-boyfriend. De Niro’s adopted daughter, Drena De Niro, is 43-years old – a little too old for a public violence. Rumor has it that Drena accosted her ex, Austin Young, as he was walking his dog in Greenwich Village. It’s said that Drena walked up to him and punched him in the face.
On the subject, Young stated,”For 15 minutes she whaled on me and yelled at me. I can take a punch, but she whaled on me, like, 10 times. She’s a Thai boxer, and a very good one. I think she heard about my new girlfriend moving into my apartment. She’s very bitter with the way our relationship ended. If the roles had been reversed, I would have been arrested. I feel like I was bullied by celebrity power.”
This sounds like it’s straight from a feature film, but this actually happened in real life. Hollywood hunk, Brad Pitt, saved a young woman’s life on the set of World War Z. The film, set in Glasgow, Scotland packed the streets with 700 extras for an epic zombie invasion scene. However, during shooting a young woman was knocked to the ground and nearly trampled in the chaos. Pitt quickly lept to her rescue and lifted her out and away from the crowd.
Hollywood has seen some epic divorce battles, but none more epic than the divorce between Mel Gibson and Grigorieva. The war is finally over and the dust is settling after the embittered duo finally reached a settlement in their custody dispute this week.
Lindsay Lohan is taking a stand. In an effort to revamp her image, she has called for all mean remarks about her in the press to stop. Her first line of defense is to take on rapper Pitbull. His new single, “Give Me Everything” contains the lyrics “”Hustlers move aside, so I’m tiptoeing, keep flowin’/I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.” Lohan took offense at this slight and has filed a lawsuit against Pitbull. Her lawsuit states “the lyrics, by virtue of its wide appeal, condemnation, excoriation, disparaging or defamatory statements by the defendants about the plaintiff are destined to do irreparable harm to the plaintiff.” The lawsuit aims to remove the song from the airwaves and also seeks unspecified damages. This is just the first step for Lohan, but most of this will depend on her future behavior.
Victoria Beckham, since giving birth to her new baby Harper, has barely been seen out of the house. And now we know why! She aggravated an old injury when she was giving birth which resulted in a slipped disc in her back. Her back is severely injured, but she’s on the mend. Feel better soon, Victoria!
Kim Kardashian finally tied the knot this weekend. Her wedding to basketball player Kris Humphries took place Saturday evening in Montecito, California. She wore a custom Vera Wang gown and was walked down the aisle by her stepfather, Bruce Jenner. 440 guests were in attendance at the extravagant weddings. Paparazzi was forbidden from the gathering, so no pictures of the event have been released at this time. Congratulations, Kim!
Miss Sex and the City? Pine for the day when you’d rush home to watch it? Well, Sex and the City is returning to TV! However, this is SATC: The Prequel show. The show will be based off the show creator’s (Candace Bushnell) series The Carrie Diaries which chronicles Carrie’s years in high school and early 20s. Rumors have the star line-up as such: Blake Lively, Elizabeth Olsen, Selena Gomez, and Emma Roberts. Potentially AWESOME!
Abercrombie & Fitch has a new strategy: get the Jersey Shore crew NOT to wear A&F clothes (on or off the show). The brand, tired of being associated with the crude, loud mouth bunch of Jersey “guidos” and “guidettes” has asked the cast to no longer wear their clothes. This request actually comes with a cash payment. Instead of paying them to wear their clothes, they’re paying them NOT to wear their clothes. So backwards! That’s when you know you have an image problem.
Ryan Reynolds, recently split from his wife Scarlett Johansson, has been spotted with Sandra Bullock. Bullock and Reynolds starred together in the film The Proposal and developed a close friendship on and off the set. So far, rumors are swirling that the two are more than just friends. Let’s hope he treats her better than Jesse James did.
