If there’s one star that knows how to grab the attention of media and fans alike it’s Miley Cyrus. Last year, the former Disney star blew up in a big way, landing on the front page of every magazine and website, which covered her every move. And trust us when we say that her moves were rich and lavish. According to The Fabulous Life, the singer spares no expense when it comes to living large and in charge. How much does her tongue cost? We don’t know but we can tell you she spent $35,000 on a custom fur coat designed by The Blonds. And the expenses don’t stop there. She dropped $4,000 on a custom tipi for her backyard, $60,000 on her flawless nail art and $10,000 on a tricked-out commode.
In 1999, Touchstone Pictures released a modern re-telling of Taming With The Shrew starring two relative unknowns, Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger. In 10 Things I Hate About You, Ledger played Patrick Verona, a brooding rebel with an Australian accent and romantic interest to Stiles’s Katarina “Kat” Stratford. Stiles’s character was also a rebel, who found in Riot Grrl music and Sylvia Plath novels, at least until she met Patrick. The two characters played unsuspecting romantic pawns in Kat’s younger sister’s ploy to date and find love, until it was Patrick and Kat that found each other. By the end of the romantic comedy, after all the romance and love loss, Kat was tasked with rewriting Shakespeare’s Sonnet 141. Having finally understood heartbreak, Kat lashed out through rhyme. While the movie may have suggested there were ten things she hated about Ledger’s character, Patrick there were, in fact, 14 items. But honestly, none of them were really true.
On the 15th anniversary of the film’s theatrical release, we wanted to remember that pivotal and heartbreaking scene, while enjoying the first time we all fell in love with Heath Ledger.
Life doesn’t get any more fabulous than it does for music’s most powerful couple on the planet. Beyoncé and Jay Z literally rule the roost from the charts to living in luxury. VH1′s The Fabulous Life goes deep inside the lavish world of the couple. And the numbers. Are. Staggering! What does Beyoncé wear to President Obama’s inauguration? Emerald earrings valued at $1.8M. What does Jay Z by for his longtime girlfriend? A Rolls Royce for her 25th birthday. Oh, and it cost $1M. As for Blue Ivy, she was literally born into luxury. The hospital cost the couple $1,700 per night and she was adorned with gifts that cost anywhere from $15K to $600K!
If you haven’t seen Comedy Central’s sleeper hit Broad City then stop what you’re doing and watch it right now. With the season finale airing tonight, you only have a few hours left to catch up on what is being dubbed as a millennial hit. In the clip above, Amy Poehler explains why the show resonates with people in their 20s. Of course, it goes beyond the love of the Parks and Recreation star who is one of the show’s producers. In fact, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson have done a brilliant job of capturing the voice of their generation in 10 half-hour episodes.
If there’s one thing fans know about game show host and comedian, Billy Eichner, it’s that he’s a huge Meryl Streep fan. He’s gone on record about just how amazing she is, sat two feet away from her when she was guest on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and even getting into a screaming match with one of his contestants over who was better: Meryl Streep or Glenn Close. Needless to say, that kind of fandom means Eichner must know a lot about the Oscar-winning actress. While at PaleyFest 2014 for the Parks and Recreation chat with Retta and his other co-stars, VH1′s Kate Spencer put Eichner on the spot in what we like to to call “Billy on the Streep.”
Parks and Recreation‘s Donna aka the terribly funny Retta is probably Twitter’s funniest live-tweeter. Each week the actress blesses fans with shocked reactions, quick wit and unforettable commentary. When VH1′s Kate Spencer bumped into her on the red carpet of the PaleyFest 2014, the ultimate TV fan festival, she tested Retta’s Twitter knowledge of the show and had her provide one-word and one-tweet reviews. She offers up thoughts on Orange is the New Black, Scandal and The Walking Dead. And let’s be real, hearing Retta review each show is just like watching her live feed on Twitter. She’s exactly the person you want to watch TV with because she knows exactly how you feel.
Justin Bieber isn’t your normal child star. The singer turn mega star lives in a world all of his own. VH1 goes inside the fabulous life of the singer which includes leopard-painted cars, pet monkeys, and more shoes than Carrie Bradshaw. Oh what a life! Thanks to his recent tour, he has nearly $150 million to spend on just about everything he could need. Well, everything outside of staying out of legal trouble. (But that’s another story!)
Ahead of the release of The Single Moms Club, a film written, directed, produced by and starring Tyler Perry, we thought it was worthwhile looking back on all the Tyler Perry Productions (TPP) that came before it. In total, Perry has produced 16 films (including SMC) from the ongoing Madea franchise to stand-alones, such as Temptation and Why Did I Get Married? All of the films have been met with varying degrees of praise and success. But who has actually sat down and watched all of them? Inspired by that question, I decided to review all of Perry’s film in order to grade and rank each film.
To see how they fall in order (from worst to best), flip through the gallery above. For a more in-depth, critical analysis keep on reading!
Just how fabulous is the life of Nicki Minaj? In short: Pretty fab! The rapper is the subject of this week’s episode of The Fabulous Life Of... and the show digs deep into her lavish lifestyle. For instance, did you know she drops upwards of $16,000 on a dress? And that’s just to walk to red carpet. Then there are the shoes, which cost nearly $3,500 a pair. What?! That’s more than last month’s rent! Don’t even get us started on the cars, the trips and her obsession with fried chicken.
