Check out Ms. Selena Gomez. She performed yesterday in Puerto Rico as a part of her world tour, wearing this eye-catching blue sequined outfit. Not only did she show off her amazing legs, but she whipped out her new hairdo as well. She wove some blue and purple extensions in her hair to complement her clothes and we have to say, she really pulled off the look. Without looking twee! Kudos, Ms. Gomez. We feel like interrogating her personal trainer to find out how exactly she got those pins. Unless it’s pure genetics, and if that’s the case, shoot us now.
Raven Symone has slowly been shrinking since the fall, and she showed off her new, svelte figure on the red carpet and runway of the Race to Erase MS event in Los Angeles this weekend. The actress joins Jennifer Hudson and Sara Rue in the “celebs with a skinny new bod” camp, and while we think she looks great, we thought she looked lovely before her dramatic weight loss too. Are you feeling Raven’s new look?
People Magazine reports today thatGwyneth Paltrow had to gain twenty pounds to play the role of washed-up, alcoholic country star Kelly Canter in the upcoming film Country Strong. Of course that meant an interview with Paltrow’s notorious trainer Tracy Anderson, who had to sit idly while her star pupil self-destructed with bucket after bucket of fried chicken. Anderson, who whipped Paltrow into shape for Iron Man, said “It was frustrating for me, but they wanted her to gain.”
But then of course, Anderson says that Paltrow dropped the weight immediately after filming wrapped just by resuming her normal exercise routine. People annoyingly writes “She didn’t even need to kick it up a notch.” Well of course she didn’t, she’s Gwyneth Paltrow. She farts rainbows and loses weight just by thinking smug, cleanse-y thoughts. Here’s the thing though: The photos above show Gwyneth in the film (at left), where she is supposed to be 20 lbs. heavier. The photo on the right is Gwyneth at the film’s premiere last night, post weight-loss. Pretty hard to tell which photo is supposed to be “fat” Gwyneth. In fact, “fat” Gwyneth is still skinnier than anyone we know in real life. And hey, what kind of “fat” country star was she supposed to emulate anyway? Obese Faith Hill? Enormous Carrie Underwood? None of this makes any sense. Especially since, if they really wanted her to pack on the pounds, they could have just gotten Gwyneth’s Shallow Hal fat suit out of storage.
Most celebrities get buff while they’re on Dancing With The Stars, but Aaron Carter made his extreme transformation a year after he was on the show. In a Twitter picture Carter posted this weekend, the pop singer has proven himself to have abs, arms, delts, pecs and a neck of steel. He wrote in the Tweet “I’ve been at Johnny Wright’s compound working on my mind, music, and body for a new album release!” Good old Johnny Wright’s – your one-stop shop for turning into a pop music Incredible Hulk. If Carter’s mind and music are anything like his body, we fully expect Carter to sweep the Grammy’s and go to Harvard next year.
What do you think, is his look hot or a little scary?
How we love it when celebrities confirm what everyone’s been saying behind their backs. We had always assumed Victoria Beckham was too busy drooling over David’s body to hear his oddly high voice, and we love being right! Says Victoria, “I don’t really notice that he’s got a high-pitched voice. I just think he’s so goddamn perfect that people have to find something wrong with him.” We can all agree that David Beckham is so profoundly hot, he must have at least one flaw or the universe would implode on itself. But honestly, when you see him talk, he comes off like Tweety Bird and Mickey Mouse’s super-jacked, tattoo-covered baby.
Claims Victoria, “He just naturally looks good all the time. He never looks like s**t in the morning. Never. So he’s sitting there sending his e-mails, all ripped. Not an ounce of fat on him. And I thought,’You done good, girl.’ I sure wasn’t thinking of his high-pitched voice.” The reporter then doused Victoria with ice-cold water until she stopped panting long enough to finish the interview. All kidding aside, we really do appreciate her honesty. David’s voice might set off car alarms, but once you have your tongue in his mouth you can probably pretend he sounds like Gerard Butler, or Bea Arthur, or anyone else with a beautiful baritone voice.

Spelling explained that the comments about her weight hurt because, as a former television star of a teen soap opera where she got her role because of her famous dad, she knows people look up to her. “I’m a role model for a lot of women out there, so I hate that they say these things unwarranted, without any research and facts. I think it’s doing a disservice to women out there that look up to any celebrity,” Spelling told USA Today. To those women who do look up to Tori, to the point where they buy her punny-titled memoirs, the latest one called Uncharted TerriTORI will reveal all her health struggles that lead to the weight loss.
We’re hard on some celebrities at times when we don’t mean to be, but one actress who always manages to irritate us and we have no problem calling her out on it is Gwyneth Paltrow. Call it the holier-than-thou GOOP effect, but Gwynnie’s always talking about her life’s great obstacles and obsessions (What to do about these three pounds of holiday weight gain?! How to handle brain farts! Black leggings: my dirty little secret!) and it seems like nothing more than her own oblivious way of telling us all she’s loaded and has an expert advisor for everything we normal people handle on our own.
In this week’s edition of GOOP, Paltrow shills for her personal trainer Tracy Anderson, who was once responsible for sculpting Madonna’s rock hard everything until Madge fired her, and touts the Anderson technique for helping her get rid of her “batwings” and saggy butt. Spare us your fat talk Gwyneth, you’re talking to a serial Weight Watcher who regularly eats entire boxes of macaroni and cheese alone in the dark, we’re pretty sure you don’t know from saggy butts. If you do want to see exactly what it takes to get Gwyneth’s sculpted arms, check out the video she posted of Anderson showing off her moves. It’s especially fun to watch while squirting corn syrup into your mouth straight from the bottle.
We love that the ladies of “Jersey Shore” have been very vocal about their healthy body images, so we got a bit misty-eyed when we heard our wee Snooki once starved herself down to 80 pounds in high school. “In high school, I really wouldn’t eat,” she told Us Weekly. “I would only have lunch, and I would only have salads. It got so crazy that I would only eat a cracker or a cucumber a day and I would feel full.”
Thankfully a nurse at school intervened and got Mama and Papa Snooki involved and our beloved Guidette got her weight back up to a healthier 98 pounds, which is how we like her. Where else on TV have you seen a woman speak so joyfully about scarfing down pickles and sausage? And she’s not alone – good ol’ J-Woww loves her ham, and all the girls on the show are very proud of their phsyiques, none of which are Lohan-like in their thiness. For all the screwed up sh*t that’s gone down on the Shore, you gotta high five the ladies for presenting themselves as confident, healthy, and happy with how they look, and leaving the body images issues for their gym n’ tan addicted male roommates.

We’re sure Ashley Greene wasn’t purposely trying to plug starvation as a weight-loss method when asked by reporters about how she stayed skinny for “New Moon.” The poor girl’s barely been in any movies, so she’s a bit, uh, green when it comes to repeating rehearsed lines prepped for her by her publicist. At least that’s what we assume happened when Ash gave this obnoxious comment to Us Magazine. “It was really easy,” said the actress, when asked how she stayed svelte. “We were working 12 hours a day, so it didn’t leave too much time to eat.”
Even more priceless is this observation from the mag: “After her response, her publicist nudged her, but Greene didn’t seem to care about her blunt answer.”
Blunt seems like a very nice way of calling Greene’s answer straight-up stupid, which we’re happy to do even if Us won’t. Regardless of how inexperienced one is with dealing with the press, shouldn’t stars know that providing thinspiration to their tween fans is totally taboo? [Photo: GettyImages]
