Mother Monster has a new title: Twitter Queen! Lady Gaga has busted social media records today by earning her 25 millionth follower on Twitter, making her the most followed person in the entire world. Her closest competition comes from Justin Bieber, who trails by more than 2.5 million. “#25milliontweetymonsters wow! I’m officially feeling like the luckiest girl in the world today,” the music megastar tweeted this morning.
But hang on a second. There are 7 billion people in the world. What the hell are the rest of you 6.75 billion doing!? Join Twitter and follow her! Need a reason? OK, you asked for it! We’ve assembled the 25 best things we’ve learned about the pop goddess since following her on Twitter. Check ‘em out in the gallery below. Enjoy!
Although they’ve only been public for less than two months, kontroversial kouple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are apparently preparing to move in together. According to a report on TMZ, both Kim and Yeezy have secretly listed their respective homes for sale with a “pocket listing,” which doesn’t show up in official real estate paperwork. Sneaky! Unnamed sources claim that the pair are now searching for a rental home to share. This probably shouldn’t come as a huge surprise considering that the two have allegedly been talking about marriage. Everyone who’s kinda bummed that Kim wasted all that camera coverage on Kris Humphries, raise your hand. We thought so. Come on Kardashians, watching Kim and Kanye go house-hunting would be the greatest reality show OF ALL TIME!
Bieber Fever is getting dangerous up in Scandinavia today as thousands of Justin Bieber’s fans are running rampant in the Norwegian capital of Oslo. The singer was scheduled to debut four songs tonight during the television special “Around the World,” but fans from all over Europe have flocked to the venue, and police are having trouble handling the crowd! Government officials are reportedly considering declaring the city in a state of emergency, and have begged Biebs to perform sooner than scheduled in an effort to prevent the swarm of unruly teens from growing any larger.
No word on whether Bieber will take to the stage early, as he’s currently being held in a secret location prior to being helicoptered in, James Bond-villian style. However, the singer did post some tweets pleading with the crowd to chill out. “For the show to happen u must all listen to the police,” he wrote. “We are all concerned for your safety and i want what is best for u. please listen.” These fans in Oslo seem to have an particularly severe case of Bieber-Fever. Check out this video of the teen star getting chased through the streets by his rabid fan-army! Who knows, maybe they’re just trying to take the headlines away from his paparazzo assault case?
It looks like Cosmopolis has earned the Kristen Stewartseal of approval. The actress got a chance to weigh in on boyfriend Robert Pattinson’s latest film yesterday at MTV News’ Sneak Peek Week Q&A for her own upcoming movie, Snow White and the Huntsman. KStew caught the film while attending the Cannes film festival, and needless to say she’s pretty stoked about her Twilight love’s work.”He’s so good in it!” she squeed. “He’s really, really [good]. I don’t even know how he [did it]. I couldn’t even understand it. It’s so good, it’s so cool, I’m so proud of him.” Her gushing enthusiasm is more than enough to melt any Twi-hard’s heart, and sent the crowd into a giant “awww” that could probably be heard in the next county.
But the interview wasn’t all about the RPattz. Kristen was on a mission to bring her Snow White and the Huntsman gospel to the people, and she and co-star Sam Claflin definitely delivered the goods with this brand-new clip. Hopefully it’ll tide you over until Friday…
Trying to keep up with Rihanna’s relationship rumors is like trying to keep track of the most complex soap opera in human history. The “We Found Love” singer seems to find new love about as often as the rest of us change socks. At least it you believe the tabloids, that is. For all we really know, Rihanna could be living the life of a nun…a very scantily clad nun. But barely a week goes by when a story of Riri’s new alleged hookup comes spiraling out into the gossip universe, and this long weekend wasn’t any different.
It’s all too much! So to help you make sense of the swirling vortex that we call Rihanna’s speculative love-life, we’ve assembled this helpful (and very thorough) timeline of all her hookups and relationships, both real and imagined. Enjoy!
It looks like her pointguard boyfriend Dwyane Wade isn’t Gabrielle Union’s favorite kind of Miami Heat! The actress spent her Memorial Day under the sizzling sun on Miami Beach, enjoying herself in a tiny white bikini and rip-roarin’ cowboy hat. She was joined in the sand by fellow basketball girlfriend Savannah Brinson, who’s engaged to Heat forward LeBron James. The two took a dip in the ocean before taking it easy in a shady lounge chair. Isn’t that what summer long weekends are for? Check out more in the gallery below!
And so it begins. Britney Spears showed up to her first day of work as an X Factor judge today, armed with a hot pink mini dress and bizarre fiance/conservator combo Jason Trawick. Despite rumors of nerves, she looked confident and composed as she made her way to the first round of auditions in Austin this afternoon. In fact, we think she looks great! Looks like fellow reality judge Howard Stern isn’t going to get the train-wreck he was hoping for.
Maybe Brit got a call from former X Factor judge (and Pussycat Doll) Nicole Scherzinger! Our very own Janell Snowdon recently caught up with the lovely Nicole, and the singer offered some soothing words on how Britney and Demi Lovato can make the most of their time on the show. “Speak from your heart,” she says. “Just be you. That’s what Simon always told me, ‘Just be you.’” Check out the full interview in the video above, and more photos from Britney’s first day in the gallery below!
-Orange who? -Audrina Patridge showed off her super toned body in an orange bikini today!
Damn it, we screwed that joke up. But the fact remains that the former Hills star and swim suit connoisseur looked amazing as she hit the beaches of Cabo in a loud orange bikini. Audrina was joined by boyfriend Corey Bohan on her south of the border vacation, which is apparently to celebrate her 27th birthday. Her birthday was on the 9th, so we guess she’s just taking the whole month off. Head to the gallery below for more sexy fun in the sun!
It’s gotta be nice to be a teenage celebrity. If your parents tell you to turn your music down, just go out and buy your own house! Yes, while the rest of us were worrying about cleaning our rooms, these fresh faced actors and actresses are splurging on pads of their very own. Hunger Games hero Josh Hutcherson just shelled out some serious bucks to own the Hollywood Hills “tree house” once owned by the late great Heath Ledger. The 1,861 mansion set him back $2.995 million and boasts 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and an outdoor theater nestled in the sycamore trees!
Of course, the 19-year-old isn’t the only teenage multimillionaire that’s got a crib of his own. Justin Bieber just recently spent over $6 million on a massive estate on the outskirts of Los Angeles. Country-pop princess Taylor Swift also has a swanky Beverly Hills home to her name, as do former Disney stars Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato. Head down to the gallery below to see more incredible homes of teenage stars. As if you needed another reason to be jealous of these guys…
Bikini season is just about in full swing, and who better than swimsuit queen and SI covergirlKate Upton to create some sexy new styles for those scorching days at the beach? The lady obviously knows her way around a two-piece, and she can save money on models by just doing the job herself! The latest additions to Kate’s bikini collection have been unveiled on Beach Bunny Swimwear, and they sizzle like an August afternoon on the Sun. We’re definitely impressed with Kate’s bikini designs, but we can’t say that same for her jean shorts. Looks like she needs to revamp her quality control department or something, because they’re falling apart! The damn things couldn’t even survive the photo shoot. Obviously she didn’t put them through hardcore stress-testing like Rihanna does with her pairs of booty shorts. Maybe next time, Kate. Check out more of her hot new bikini styles in the gallery below!
