If you didn’t know who Iggy Azalea was before, you do now after the Aussie MC hit the VH1 Divas stage with Natasha Bedingfield and Bootsy Collins in that gem and fringe bustier for a brilliant cover of “Groove Is In The Heart.” Besides her fire spitting skills, T.I.’s Grand Hustle rookie’s drop-dead gorgeous form was on full display. How does Iggy stay looking so fresh while sweating and grinding on stage? Well, because she’s a sweetheart (and probably pitied my own ragged appearance) the blonde beauty shared some of her makeup secrets. It may not get you a modeling contract like Iggy, but you can at least resemble a diva in under three minutes.
The final result.
Can’t get enough of Iggy’s look? Check out head-to-toe photos of the outfit Iggy was rocking during her down time at Divas rehearsals below and try your best to keep up with “Boss Lady’s” style. Read more…
I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to dance. And it looks like this years’ VH1 Divas theme isn’t just getting to me. All weekend long our performers have been showing us their go-to dance moves, so we put them in a GIF wall (the only appropriate place). Looks like Adam Lambert‘s head-snapping ways are contagious.
Keri Hilson did the hustle, Iggy Azalea did the Macarena, and Jordin Sparks twerks…well, in private, she says. For us she did the salsa while Ledisi did the cabbage patch, Natasha Bedingfield showed us a sexy hip wiggle and Melanie Fiona made up what she calls her “itchy dress dance.” Check them all out below and let’s see if any of these moves make it into the show at 9PM ET/8C.
It wouldn’t be VH1 Divas week without a daily dose of this year’s host Adam Lambert. And guess what our fearless dance party maestro had to say when we told him Natasha Bedingfield, Iggy Azalea and Bootsy Collins are performing Deee-Lite‘s “Groove Is In The Heart” this Sunday? The only appropriate response: “That’s f***ing genius! I love that song!”
If it were up to me, Adam’s opinion about anything would be taken as law, because beneath that carefully coiffed mass of hair lurks a mastermind with perfect eyebrows. That said, we have journalistic integrity, so let’s back up Adam’s endorsement with some stats about the stars singing the middle school dance favorite. Read more…
Ten days left until VH1 Divas airs live on Sunday, December 16 at 9 p.m. ET/8C. And 11 more performers and presenters have just signed on for what’s shaping up to be one hell of a party at L.A.’s Shrine Auditorium. Not only are Natasha Bedingfield, Bootsy Collins, Iggy Azalea, and past Divas alumna Keri Hilson and Ledisi adding to the set list of our current all-star roster, but Brandy, La La Anthony, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Stacey Keibler, NeNe Leakes and Kelly Osbourne will be making appearances throughout the night!
I can’t wait! Can we hope for a Natasha/Bootsy duet? Will Jenna will bring her “Sexiest Man Alive” hubby along? Will Kelly will diss the red carpet fashion? Of course, anything NeNe says is a ready-made tweet. Whatever happens, you’ll get the news here first. Don’t forget you can head over to Ticketmaster to purchase tickets to VH1 Divas if you want to have your world rocked in person. Check out the press release that just dropped into our sequined laps for more info.

Apparently Azealia Banks didn’t read our plea for her to get out of her own way. The tally of her rap beefs is pretty meaty. The latest addition to the tally of Twitter wars Azealia has ignited is Nicki Minaj. Earlier this week Azealia Banks tweeted, “I got invited to tour with Nicki Minaj in Europe but I cant go because I have to finish my album during that time.” Seems promising, right? Unless of course Azealia was telling a little white lie. Read more…
Obviously Iggy Azalea is not literally in the murder business as the title of her first single “Murda Bizness” featuring T.I. implies. The song is actually more about killing the competition through style and flossing more money than anything related to violence. To demonstrate annihilating one’s opponents, Iggy pokes fun at the cut-throat kiddy pageantry industry. The folks involved with the Toddlers & Tiaras show may not find this too funny. Oh, but it is.
