Lily Allen wants to be a wannabe, for real. Allen recent discussed a fantasy she had for this year’s Brit Awards to team up with several of her fellow divas to perform a tribute to The Spice Girls. Though the award show came and went already, we beg Lily to follow through with what we think is a brilliant idea.
Allen explained “I’d be Posh, Adele would be Ginger, Duffy would be Baby, Leona [Lewis] would be Scary and Amy [Winehouse] would be Sporty… She was always the one with the best voice.” Allen had hoped the quintet would be able to recreate the Spice Girls’ first huge hit “Wannabe” onstage. Just the idea of watching Amy Winehouse attempt a backflip in a sports bra makes us tingle with glee. Lily, please don’t give up on this idea, we would give anything to have this happen! Maybe you can bring it up again for the 2010 awards.
Check out Lily’s pals Leona Lewis and Adele on “VH1 Divas,” which will air live on Sept. 17 at 9PM EST.

Rihanna had quite a trendy Tuesday in New York City yesterday, starting off the day shopping at Barney’s New York in a cute black and floral print Rag & Bone dress and then working it in a black strapless ruffled mini dress and animal print cuff when she partied at Greenhouse that night. Riri spent the evening celebrating her publicist’s birthday at the downtown hotspot and posed for photos with her group. [Photos: Splash News Online]
Kelly Clarkson has remained grounded even as her career continues to skyrocket, which is why she’s the most down to earth diva we know. As we told you last week, the singer is snapping back at haters in a new interview with Self magazine, saying, “‘When people talk about my weight, I’m like, ‘You seem to have a problem with it; I don’t. I’m fine!”
She also reveals her philosophy to maintaining her physique. “My happy weight changes,” she says, adding, “I love healthy stuff and junk an equal amount. Whatever I’m craving, I go for it.”
The singer, who stays in shape with Crossfit workouts, says the less she thinks about her bod, the better off she is. “For me, it’s the times when I’m not paying attention that I end up losing weight,” Kelly reveals. “But I’m never trying to lose weight – or gain it. I’m just being!” [Photo:GettyImages]

Tom Brady poses for the September issue of Details and tells us why life is not exactly how he envisioned it, why modeling is harder than football, and why he and wife Gisele Bundchen are just right for each other.
On modeling being harder than playing football: “When I’m out on the football field, I have so much confidence in what I’m doing. With [the modeling], I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m at the whim of the photographer and the crew.”
On life and having a child out of wedlock: “That’s not how you envisioned your life, that’s not how you envisioned having children, but it happens. Life is not living in the suburbs with a white picket fence. That’s not life. Somehow our American culture has made it out that that’s what life needs to be—and that if it’s not that, it’s all screwed up. It’s not. You go through life and you try the best you can.”
On being set-up on a blind date with Gisele: “This friend told me he knew a girl version of me.” Gisele chimes in, “And he said to me he’d found a boy version of me.” [Source: Details; Photos: Steven Klein]
As the Knowles sisters take on Japan to promote the Samantha Thavasa & Disney Collection, the sexy siblings have been dressing less than chic. Yesterday at the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel, Solange wore an XXL white shirt with a ruffled pink skirt, while sis Beyonce sported a denim-inspired dress. While both looked gorgeous from the neck-up, we’re torn who looked worse south of their shoulders. [Photos: Getty Images]
Check out which songbird said the above quote after the jump. Hint: she worked as a fashion model before she was super famous!
The Teen Choice Awards show was chock full of stylish young stars strutting their stuff on the red carpet, but just like every big Hollywood event, there were some misses amongst the hits (we’re looking at you, Ed Westwick‘s cuffed jeans). We’ve gathered the fifteen least lovely looks for you to oogle at. Sure, they made us go “blegh,” but you might have a different opinion. Drop some fashion knowledge in the comments below!
Leighton Meester got it very wrong when she sported this cutout Christopher Kane dress at a screening of Spread hosted by Gotham and Hamptons magazine in East Hampton, New York on Saturday. Even though she accessorized with cool Giuseppe Zanotti heels and a hot Louis Vuitton clutch, her accessories could not redeem her. This dress looks like she came in from the beach, left her bikini top on, and threw a matching cover-up over it to go out to an event. Luckily it looks like this was just a little style snafu, as the Gossip Girl star redeemed herself with her chic Louis Vuitton dress at the Teen Choice Awards, but had she not done that, we would seriously be concerned for the state of her fashion sense.
