The Olympics Closing Ceremony: Who We Were Most Excited To See

Spice Girls Performing At The Olympics Closing Ceremony

SPICE UP YOUR LIFE! Sorry, guys. We really did get excited seeing the Spice Girls reunited while performing at the amazing spectacle that was the Olympics Closing Ceremony yesterday (or this morning, depends on what part of the world you’re in.) Especially went whizzing around in those cool, lit-up minis! And they weren’t the only ones we squeed at. The whole playlist of sorts had moments we were giddy about. How about Take That? We used to swoon over them back in the day, and seeing them together brought back all those memories. We only wish that Robbie Williams had joined them, but we’ll take what we can get. We got One Direction for the swooning-in-this-day-and-age, so we’re all good!  George Michael busting out moves was awesome — did you sing Freedom out aloud too? And how about them supermodels, huh? All in glittering gold gowns. Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Stella Tennant, Karen Elson and the rest of the finest of the Brit fashion crop did make a huge impression.

We have to say that Fatboy Slim busting out Rockerfella Skank was a massive moment for us too. Acid house at the Olympics? Yes, please! And while we’re at it — what did you think of Russell Brand‘s performance? We love him, so we were more than happy to see him up there. More than anything, his inclusion showed just how much thought the organizers put into this ceremony. They tried to be together everything quintessentially British — fashion, comedians, music, dancing — and we think they totally succeeded. Look through our gallery to have a look at who else we were excited to see, and let us know if you agree!

Lady Gaga Goes Mint Blond, Could Front Queen Tour

If there’s any pop star around today that can even hold a candle to illimitable Freddie Mercury, it has to be Lady Gaga. You have the fabulous outfits, the soaring voice, and, to a lesser degree, the teeth. So, it’s not that surprising to hear that Lady Gaga might front Queen for an upcoming tour. “We talk about going out on the road all the time but there’s a bit of a singer problem to put it mildly,” Queen guitarist Brian May recently told the Daily Express. “I worked with Lady Gaga and she’s very creative and is someone we’ve talked about singing, fronting the band with.” Whoa, whoa, whoa! If Gaga is considering the possibility of singing with other bands, this opens up a whole world of possibilities. Hard-core rocking possibilities.


Katy Perry Acts The Queen At Birthday Party

Another day, another Katy Perry photo op. But this one ranks above most others, as it involves a moustache. The singer celebrated her 24th birthday by dressing up as Queen singer Freddie Mercury at a costume party in LA last night. Sadly, Perry did not serenade attendees with renditions of “I Kissed A Fat Bottomed Girl” or “I’m So Gay.” Check out photos from the bash in the gallery below.
