Hi friends! Kate Spencer here, host of VH1′s daily pop culture web-chat show sensation Very VH1. Each day on the show we feature a segment called TabLOLoids, where I poke fun at the most ridiculous, disturbing and absurd tabloid stories of the week. Of course there’s always one story that stands out above the rest, and we’ll be highlighting each week’s pick here on VH1 Celebrity with a clip from our show. Today’s fine piece of investigative journalism comes to us courtesy of Star Magazine and their exclusive story titled ‘Justin’s [Bieber] Drug & Sex Romp Behind Selena’s Back!’
I don’t want to give too much away, but let me tease you with this: Star lays out some very intimate, gag-worthy details of Bieber’s sex-capades while high on weed, McDonald’s and sizzurp (which TMZ claims he uses often). Also, he pulls a move straight out of Pretty Woman. Yep, it’s pretty much perfect. Watch my review and enjoy all the dirty details in the clips below.
See that big red cirle in the photograph above? That’s Rihanna sitting and listening intently to the proceedings during Chris Brown‘s court hearing yesterday. As you know, he was hauled back into court because it was believed that Brown had not completed his community service properly last year. Here’s the interesting part — Brown was required to do community service as a part of his sentence for assaulting Rihanna back in 2009. And here she is, with him in court to listen to his team swear that he did his time? It’s an odd sort of full circle, isn’t it? His team came prepared, too, considering Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, was on the offensive from the get-go. He went off at a press conference stating, “I have never had a client who has been tortured like Chris Brown has” adding, “The D.A. is paralyzed with the thought his probation will be terminated. If that happens they won’t be able to jock him around like they’ve been jocking him around.”
In court, Geragos fought back against allegations that Chris had lied about completing his required 180 hours of community service by presenting legal documents including invoices and other proof showing that his client had paid $31,534.70 to the Richmond PD for security during his service. The D.A had stated that Brown hadn’t done so. Geragos also presented various documents that showed proof that Brown had done service at various police departments. This is just the start of it, because there are still a lot of accusations against Chris, one being that his mother had filled out his hours and his team had tampered with the details. But Geragos insists that he’s on the job and so far, ”what we’ve uncovered so far should shock the conscience of the court. And this is only the tip of the iceberg.” This should be interesting.
This Life & Style headline about Rihanna being the real reason behind Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s breakup made us chuckle … at first. We really have a hard time believing that RiRi and Justin were seeing each other as far back as 2010 — when the Biebs looked practically prepubescent (no offense) — as L&S claims. (It’s much more believable now, though; have you seen these abs?)
New York Fashion Week kicked off with the always eagerly awaited, celebrity-model filled “The Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection” fashion show, held at the Hammerstein Ballroom yesterday. The show was created to raise awareness for women’s heart issues and deatures stars walking the runway in red dresses loaned by top designers. This year, we adored Minka Kelly in a graceful, pleated and draped Oscar de la Renta Resort 2013 gown. Kelly Osbourne wore a hot, strapless mermaid fishtail by Zac Posen, while Jamie Chung took on slinky deep cherry sequins from the David Meister Signature collection. Toni Braxton looked sultry in a halter Herve L. Leroux gown, while Gabrielle Douglas looked poised in a Pamella Roland mullet dress. The Jenner family walked the ramp too — Kris, Kendall and Kylie — in bright red Badgley Mischka gowns. We have to say, the girls looks absolutely lovely. Rounding up the ladies is, Roselyn Sanchez who had a blast in Tadashi Shoji as she shimmied down the runway. You can see all the looks in our gallery below. Whose gown is your favorite?
Considering we’ve had our fair share of amfAR stories on this blog, we’ve realized it’s the place to really push for fashion. Want to change up your look? This is the place? Want to show off fabulous gowns by the really serious designers? Definitely the space. Yesterday’s amfAR gala, held at Cipriani’s Wall Street in New York, was the ideal space to really class things up, considering it was a party to kick off Fall 2013 edition of Fashion Week. And where there’s fashion, there’s Sarah Jessica Parker. We’re still trying to wrap our heads around her Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2013 Couture gown. We love the texture and the fuchsia but are still trying to “get” the black and white skinny, long scarf. The whole thing seems to be swamping her figure. Heidi Klum, as expected, went the sexy route wearing a plunging, shimmering Michael Kors black gown buffed up with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. The two real surprises were Ashley Greene and Lindsay Lohan. Ashley is stunning but she regularly gets one element of her look wrong. Not this time, we thought she looked like a goddess in her white Giambattista Valli gown with the gold laurel leaf belt. The hair worked. The makeup worked. Everything worked. Then there was Lindsay who wore a sparkly, tasseled Theia Spring 2011 gown. Let’s just ignore her hair for a second, because she looks pretty damn okay, right? The gown’s sexy and her body looks good. This is a huge step forward! Now if only her hair and makeup would follow suit — we’d be happy campers.
When we saw these new photographs of Jennifer Aniston, we were quite taken aback. Changing your hair drastically can completely change your look, and that’s what’s happened to Miss Jen. In this case — in the photograph on the right — we feel she’s looking a bit like Nicole Kidman. Is that just us or are we going a bit loony? This new blond hair is for her role in a movie which, as of right now, is being called the ”Untitled Elmore Leonard Project” and is being filmed in Connecticut. IMDB tells us that the project also stars Isla Fisher, Tim Robbins, John Hawkes and Mos Def. This platinum ‘do is a wig, FYI, but it’s going to be around for a while. We’re not quite sure that’s a good thing because it’s a big change from the brunette, sun-streaked Jen we’re normally used to seeing. But, it’s probably going to grow on us. And we’re feeling especially lovey towards the actress because she’s turning 44 next week — on February 11. But our opinion doesn’t count as much as yours does, so tell us what you think of her new hair? Like it? Or not so much?
Quevenzhane Wallis is the youngest Oscar nominee ever in the Best Actress category, and the distinction is well earned. The actress’s performance in Beasts of the Southern Wild is raw and moving and will make you cry all the tears, until your tears cry tears. She’s also incredibly charming in interviews in a grounded, child-like way. She has yet to be turned into some child-star robot, and we have a hard time imagining her ever ending up as such.
One thing that’s stumped the adult reporters currently following her every move is how to pronounce her name. She schooled the press at the Oscar Nominees Luncheon on the proper way to say ‘Quevenzhane’ this week, and you can watch the video above to learn it too. But if it’s still too hard for you (and really, it shouldn’t be) she said people can just call her “Q.” Might we suggest “Q-dorable” as another option?
Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t seem to understand that she’s wayyy more famous that 99.9999999 percent of the humans on this planet. The fact that she still gets super pumped to meet people like Taylor Swift definitely adds to her insanely high levels of likability. She’s just like us, you guys! She totally doesn’t realize that most of these folks are probably even more excited to meet her, and sometimes the results are a little weird. Case in point: The time she fan-girled a little too hard over John Stamos and creeped him out.
Anne Hathaway‘s Oscar campaign has been the topic of much scrutiny over the past couple of months. She’s adorable and genuine! She’s cloying! She’s trying too hard! We’re being too hard on her for trying to hard! Ah the circle of life, Awards Season style. Regardless of your feelings about Hathaway’s schtick, it was out in full force at the Oscars Nominee Luncheon earlier this week. Anne charmed the press room with tales of hunt for an Oscar night-worthy gown, her Super Bowl eating habits, and being BFF with the director of every awesome movie ever made, ever.*
“I don’t know how to say this without sounding obnoxious,” said the actress, giggling. “But I’ve been hanging out with Steven Spielberg lately.”
Oh Anne – we’re eye-rolling and loving you all at once.
(*Except you, War Horse. You were kind of a snooze.)
