Multiracial Parenting: A Mother’s True Love…Captured In Photography

 Latrell Higgins An adopted teenage boy with no pictures of himself as a baby has posed as a ‘newborn‘ in a photo shoot for his photographer mother. Latrell Higgins, 13, from Crestview, Florida, is captured in softy-lit shots typical of a baby’s first photo shoot.

He asked mom Kelli, 33, to create the album in lieu of any photographs of himself as an infant. One of the images shows Latrell swaddled in blankets, while another shows just his feet.

Mrs Higgins proudly uploaded the montage to Facebook with the words: ‘Here’s my sweet not so little newborn! His name is Latrell and weighs 112 lbs.’

The image was posted online on January 29, and has attracted 4,897 ‘Likes’ to date.

One commentator wrote: ‘This is the most touching thing I have seen in a while!!!! I love it.’ Another added: ‘I think it’s really neat that they can celebrate/announce this adoption, no matter the age, the same way that birth parents announce their baby’s birth. I think he is a good sport.’

Mrs Higgins, who welcomed Latrell and his younger sister Chanya into their home two years ago, told Today.com‘I think it’s really hard to have children and not know what they looked like when they were younger.’

She and her husband Daniel, 35,already had five biological children and were expecting a sixth one, but admits she had a yearning to adopt.

‘These children, once they get past a certain age, they don’t find homes and they age out of foster care,’ she said. ‘They have to figure out the world on their own and there’s no one to go back to as an adult. Where do you go for Christmas? It’s just horrible, it’s heartbreaking.’

Both Latrell and Chanya, eight, are happy in their new home but sometimes emotional issues crop up. Recalling how Latrell’s baby photo project came about, Mrs Higgins said that the family were sat around the dinner table when she mentioned that she was preparing for a newborn’s photo session. Latrell mentioned that he didn’t have any pictures of himself when he was born and

Mrs Higgins’ 12-year-old daughter Alycia suggested recreating a shoot just for him:  ‘I thought it was funny and that it would be a good idea,’ Mrs Higgins said. ‘I was very sad too because I didn’t have any photos of him either.’

 Latrell Higgins The next day she took a series of pictures of Latrell at home and she recalled that they both laughed ‘hysterically’ throughout. The mother-of-eight now hopes the images will encourage others to adopt older children.

Talking about reaction she’s had so far she said: ‘[Parents] come to me telling me that they were thinking about adopting a baby, but after seeing those photos it’s changed their minds and they want to adopt an older child.’

In 2011 – the latest year for which detailed statistics are available – there were more than 104,000 children in foster care who were waiting to be adopted.
The average age of those waiting to find adoptive homes was seven according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Tia and Tamera Mowry discuss their New Year’s Resolution!

“First of all, we want to wish everyone a very happy New Year! Can you believe 2012 is over already? So much happened for both of us this year, but it really feels like it flew by. And now there’s even a new little snuggle bug in the world who wasn’t here before – Aden!”

“A new year means a fresh start, so we decided to jot down a couple of our New Year’s resolutions and share with you. That way, at the end of 2013, we can look back and hopefully feel proud of all the positive changes we’ve made in our lives. It’s always better to write stuff like this down – we think it makes things more meaningful, not to mention holds us more accountable!” - Tia and Tamera Mowry

What is a New Year’s resolution?

New Year's resolutionA New Year’s resolution is a commitment that a person makes to one or more personal goals, projects, or the reforming of a habit. A key element to a New Year’s resolution that sets it apart from other resolutions is that it is made in anticipation of the New Year and new beginnings.

People committing themselves to a New Year’s resolution generally plan to do so for the whole following year. This lifestyle change is generally interpreted as advantageous.

Tia Mowry‘s Resolutions…

  • Tia and Tamera MowryI want to continue on the health path that I committed to 3 years ago. However, I want to go deeper and learn even more things about health and nutrition. Maybe even take a few cooking lessons and learn how to make nutritious but healthy alternative dishes, such as a gluten free mac ‘n cheese dish or flourless pumpkin pie…yum! (Which I will share on this site once I do, obviously!)
  • I asked for a Vitamix Pro this Christmas and want to use it to make a vegetable juice every day! I hear this is amazing for digestion and great for energy. As a mom, energy is a must and I don’t want to turn to coffee everyday!
  • I want to get a garden going in my backyard with fresh produce and herbs
  • Get yoga in everyday, even it is just 15 to 20 minute meditations – it still makes a difference!

Tamera‘s Resolutions…

  • This year, I never want to take anything for granted and focus more on the blessings I do have rather than the things I do not have.
  • I want to try not to be so hard on myself and to enjoy the imperfections of life…including those in myself!
  • Worry less (…yeah right, I’m a new mom!)
  • Lose the baby weight by making healthier eating choices – but still allowing myself to cheat sometimes
  • Enjoy my journey as wife, actress, business woman and new mom!

What are your New Year’s resolutions?

Obama wish troops at Marine base in Hawaii merry Christmas…

The President and First Lady wished the troops a merry Christmas with a visit to a U.S. Marine base on Tuesday. His appearance with servicemen at a Christmas ceremony was his last public stop in Hawaii before he cuts short his vacation and flies back to Washington to return to negotiations over the fiscal cliff.

Barack Obama is expected to arrive in Washington early Thursday, the White House said Tuesday night. Michelle Obama and the couple’s two daughters will remain in Hawaii. In the past, the president’s end-of-the-year holiday in his native state had stretched into the new year. The first family had left Washington last Friday night.

Congress has been expected to return to Washington late Thursday. Before he departed for Hawaii, Obama told reporters he expected to be back in the capital the following week. The Obamas were spending the holiday at a rented home near Honolulu. On Christmas Day, the president and first lady visited with Marines to express thanks for their service.

‘One of my favorite things is always coming to base on Christmas Day just to meet you and say thank you,’ the president said at Marine Corps Base Hawaii‘s Anderson Hall. He said that being commander in chief was his greatest honor as president.

Obama took photos with individual service members and their families. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

‘Twas The Night Before Christmas‘, Michelle Obama reads to sick children at the hospital with Bo by her side…

Michelle Obama is typically the star of the show when she attends a charity event. That wasn’t the case when she recently read Twas The Night Before Christmas at a Washington area children’s hospital. As she sat down on stage to begin reading the classic tale to the tiny tots, Bo the First Dog jumped right up on his mother’s lap.

He seemed quite comfy as well, since he didn’t move from the position throughout the seven minute session. Bo is significantly larger than the former First Dog, Barney, who was a small Scottish terrier, and Portuguese Water Dogs can weigh up to 55 pounds.

That was no matter for Michelle, however, as she gamefully played along and even jokingly held the book out so that the 4-year-old pup could ‘read’ along. Though the First Lady visited the Children’s National Medical Center on December 14, the video was not released until Christmas Eve, in keeping with the theme of the story.

Bo is a part of many of the White House traditions during the holidays, as he served as a sort of ‘Waldo’ figure throughout the decorations, with mini figurines in his likeness scattered throughout the many displays and 54 live trees. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Tearful Barack Obama and Michelle attend emotional Hawaiian memorial service for ‘fearless and noble’ Senator Inouye…

ObamaA visibly emotional President Obama accompanied by the first lady attended a memorial service Sunday for the late Sen. Daniel Inouye of Hawaii, whom Mr Obama had previously called one of his first political inspirations.

More than 1,000 people gathered at Honolulu’s National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific to celebrated Mr Inouye’s legacy as a war veteran and long-term senator.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Hawaii’s congressional delegation and a number of other senators, cabinet secretaries and other dignitaries were also on hand at Sunday’s service.

‘Daniel was the best senator among us all,’ Reid told those assembled. ‘Whenever we needed a noble man to lean on, we turned to Sen. Dan Inouye. He was fearless.’

A 19-gun cannon salute was fired as Inouye’s coffin arrived for the service at Honolulu’s National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, the final resting place to thousands of World War II veterans. More than 400 members of the storied Japanese-American 442nd Regimental Combat Team – of which Inouye was a part – are buried at the site.

Admiral Samuel Locklear, commander of the Navy’s U.S. Pacific Command, said this also will be Inouye’s final resting place. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Obama begins Hawaiian Christmas vacation by playing golf…

As the nation peers over the edge of the fiscal cliff, President Obama kicked off his Christmas vacation in Hawaii today by playing a round of golf with friends – including his longtime pal Bobby Titcomb, who was arrested last year on suspicion of soliciting a prostitute.

Arriving in Hawaii aboard Air Force One late last night, the president enjoyed a morning at his family’s vacation residence which lies along the shores of Kailua, which is on the island of Oahu. Then, gathering White House chef Sam Kass, staffer Marvin Nicholson, and friends Mike Ramos and Bobby Titcomb, Mr. Obama traveled to the Kailua Marine Corps Base, where he started his round at the Kaneohe Clipper Course.

President Obama has known Titcomb since they attended Honolulu’s Punahou School together in the 1970s – the president graduated in 1979, a year before Titcomb. Titcomb was arrested in April 2011 in an undercover prostitution sting operation after allegedly approaching an undercover police officer for sex in downtown Hawaii.

The president’s answer? Respect.

Michelle added: ‘And there’s a lot of laughter.’

Obama reveals he REALLY ran for reelection so he could have ‘men with guns’ around daughter Malia, 14, as she starts dating boys!

President Barack Obama revealed the ‘real reason’ he wanted a second term as president is because his daughter Malia, age 14, is about to start dating boys.

‘One of the main incentives of running was continued Secret Service protection so we can have men with guns around at all times,’ the father of two joked.

The President and First Lady delved into their personal lives – including how they keep ‘the fire alive’ in their marriage – during a chat with ABC’s Barbara Walters, their first sit-down interview since the election. The president said respect is the key to happiness after more than two decades together Michelle.

President Obama arrives back early in Washington as all Americans face $586 BILLION in tax rises…

The U.S. Treasury Department will begin taking steps this week to delay hitting the government's $16.4 trillion borrowing limit, or else the debt limit would be hit on Dec. 31, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said WednesdayWhile the U.S. stares over the ‘fiscal cliff’ and $536 billion in tax increases for all Americans, President Obama and the House of Representatives have been accused of acting like kindergarten students engaged in a dangerous dare of ‘who goes first’.

President Obama returned to Washington D.C. after cutting short his Christmas vacation and the Senate is going back into session, but the Republican ruled House is still out on recess as the deadline of January 1st looms that could damage a still fragile recovery.

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner informed Congress on Wednesday that the government was on track to hit its borrowing limit on Monday and that he would take ‘extraordinary measures as authorized by law’ to postpone a government default.

Still, he added, uncertainty over the outcome of negotiations over taxes and spending made it difficult to determine how much time those measures would buy. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Rupert Murdoch urges America to ‘wake up’ as he joins gun control debate with tweet…

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch waded into the American gun control debate with a Twitter message on Christmas about the most recent shooting.

 ‘NY Xmas ruined by lunatic shooting 4 firemen, killing two. Shooter killed before, jailed, later released on medical grounds. Must wake up,’ he wrote just after noon in the East Coast.

His tweet referenced the Christmas Eve shooting when gunman William Spengler set up a trap for emergency responders, killing two, after the arrived at his burning house in Webster, New York. The case is still being investigated as police found a note left by 62-year-old Spengler before he killed himself as the fire he set brought seven houses to the ground.

Spengler, who shot himself dead after a brief firefight with police, was previously convicted of killing his grandmother and spent time behind bars. As a result of that felony, he is not legally allowed to own guns. However, somehow, he was able to obtain an assault rifle – the same type of weapon that was used to murder 20 first graders and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14. Police say Spengler also had a handgun. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

‘The game is rigged:’ Matt Damon says he’s done with ‘fixed’ Washington politics!

Matt Damon says he’s giving up on politics. The actor told Playboy magazine that he feels ‘the fix is in, the game is rigged and no matter how hard you work to change things, it just doesn’t matter.’

Damon bemoaned the state of Washington as he completes a media circuit for the release of his new movie, ‘Promised Land’ which – coincidentally – deals with the high politicized issue of fracking, or drilling for natural gas. Damon said he lost hope that the movie might have some impact in Washington.

‘We’re at a point where politicians don’t really get any benefit from engaging with long-term issues,’ he said, according to Politico. ‘Instead, it’s all about the next election cycle.’

‘Those guys in the House don’t do anything now but run for office. So unless they can find some little thing that zips them up a couple of points in the polls, they’re not interested.’

Damon’s soured attitude toward the American political system has been a couple years in the making. He made headlines last year when he famously criticized Obama’s first term, even though Damon is a Democrat and supported Obama in 2008. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Speculations bres that new boss Jeff Zucker is going to cut Soledad O’Brien from morning lineup…

CNN has named former NBC Universal chief Jeff Zucker to be their next President

Soledad O’Brien said that she is confident in the face of speculation that she will be replaced in favor of a lighter morning show once CNN undergoes the predicted transformation that will come Jeff Zucker takes the reins.

‘I’m fairly confident that I’m not going to be cooking salmon and doing fashion shows on CNN,’ O’Brien said in a recent interview.

Former NBC boss Zucker is now in charge of CNN as the cable news channel had been floundering in the ratings for months. The concern for O’Brien comes as she currently headlines the channel’s morning program Starting Point from 7am to 9am, but new theory poses that fellow CNN anchor Erin Burnett may be moved from her evening show to an earlier position.

Zucker supposedly thinks that Burnett is a ‘real talent,’ despite her failure to gain much traction in prime time with her 7 pm show, eponymous Erin Burnett Out Front, and that she could be the one to end the ratings slump that has seen its breakfast program beaten even by HLN. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

After winning Olympic gymnast Louis Smith lifts the Glitterball Trophy on Strictly Come Dancing!

Louis Smith has proved himself a winner on the dance floor after picking up the Glitterball Trophy on Saturday night’s Strictly Come Dancing final. The 23-year-old Gymnast and partner Flavia Cacace beat Kimberley Walsh and Denise Van Outen to the top spot on the show.

Louis managed to make a joke about missing out on a gold medal at the Olympics in London this summer and told Tess Daly: ‘I can finally say I won something in the year 2012.’ Louis was quick to pay tribute to his partner and said: ‘She has been an absolute legend.’ He added: ‘She is the nicest person I have ever met.’

And it’s clear that Flavia thinks equally highly of her partner as she thanked him for showing her his ‘amazing talent and skill’.

Flavia, who has been in Strictly final before but never won until this series, was delighted and hugged her partner tightly after the result was announced. Louis was the bookies favorite to take the top spot on the show, although he didn’t receive the highest score from the judges during the final show on the night.

Girls Aloud singer Kimberley proved to be a gracious runner-up and told said: ‘It has been absolutely amazing and we have loved every minute of it and I’m so, so happy for Louis.’Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

The bodyguard! A menacing looking Ice T accompanies Coco on a fan meet and greet…

Their relationship was rocked by a scandal earlier this month after photos hit the internet showing Coco Austin cuddling up with another man. So like any possessive husband, rapper Ice T jetted into Las Vegas this week to keep an eye on his buxom, blonde wife.

Dressed head-to-toe in black, the Original Gangster star looked more like a bodyguard than a supportive spouse as he arrived at a Peepshow fan meet and greet session last Friday. Wearing a red minidress with a sheer panel that showed off her impressive curves, Coco arrived at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino before her nightly burlesque show performance.

Husband Ice T gripped his wife’s hand firmly as she teetered along in a pair of animal print peep toe heels. And this time the glamour model made sure to pose with her fans in a way more suitable for a married woman, as her partner of 10 years looked on. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Spotted: Mariah Carey in bizarre corset dress on shopping trip in Aspen…

She always manages to look to look glamorous, but sadly that wasn’t enough for Mariah Carey on Saturday. The pop diva hit a low note in a bizarre ensemble as she stepped out in Aspen, Colorado, where she is currently holidaying. But thankfully, the singer was shopping for some new additions to her wardrobe and was seen hitting the upmarket stores.

Her floor-length black and white check dress was more than a little reminiscent of a tablecloth. It perhaps wouldn’t have been such an eyesore if Mariah hadn’t paired the frock with a thick bandage belt that was at odds with the dress. The Triumphant (Get ‘Em) star was also sporting a black cardigan and sparkly black scarf.

Mariah and her entourage were seen leaving the Louis Vuitton store after spending a fair amount of time browsing the pricey items, and the star was then seen chatting to fans outside before heading to Ralph Lauren. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

‘Gangsta’ Tulisa has bust up with blonde clubber who dared to speak to Danny Simpson…

Nightclub row: Sarah claims that she shouted Danny's name, which lead to a war of words with Tulisa outside Tup Tup PalaceTulisa had a pavement bust-up in Newcastle with a blonde clubber who dared to speak to her footballer boyfriend, it has been claimed.

The former N Dubz star, who was in the city to support her footballer boyfriend Danny Simpson during a match, reportedly had the bust-up with Sarah Ashton after she shouted his name.

Onlookers said Tulisa screamed abuse before bouncers hauled her away and led her to a taxi. Dental nurse Sarah, 25, who was out with her friend, former Big Brother contestant Alex Rose, has claimed that the ‘Female Boss’ turned nasty and became abusive to the pair outside Tup Tup Palace.

‘Tulisa seemed to have so much anger, I don’t know what was wrong with her. It was very upsetting,’ Alex told The Sunday Mirror.

Another friend of Sarah’s then told the paper: ‘All I did was say ‘Danny’ when he came out of Tup Tup with Tulisa. She turned around and started using gangster-type talk.’

According to the reports, the singer became angry with the girls after they started shouting in the couple’s direction and became confrontational.
But a spokesman for the singer told the paper that the couple were in fact ‘minding their own business’.

‘Tulisa and Danny were minding their own business and as they left the club, two girls started shouting abuse at her. She ­responded and there was an ­argument but Tulisa didn’t ­threaten them. A ­doorman from the club led her to a taxi.’

The couple are then reported to have returned to Danny’s pad after hopping into a taxi outside the club, which is well-known as a hangout for footballers. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Serena Williams responds to Caroline Wozniacki’s ‘racist’ impression of her…

Serena Williams has spoken out in defence of fellow tennis player Caroline Wozniacki who came under fire for an impression of the star which many blasted as racist. The former world number 1 was accused of being racist after stuffing her bra and shorts to imitate Williams at a recent exhibition match against Maria Sharapova.

The Danish player was accused of racism by some observers but in an email to USA Today Williams said that was not her friend’s intention.

‘I know Caro and I would call her my friend,’ she wrote. ‘And I don’t think she (meant) anything racist by it.’

Williams said she hadn’t watched the video of the impersonation which went viral but said Wozniacki should think again before doing anything similar in the future given the storm.

‘I must add, if people feel this way, she should take reason and do something different next time,’ she wrote signing off with a emoticon smiley face.

Williams, who is currently training in Maurtitius, also pointed out other stars have mocked her physique: ‘(Roddick) and (Djokovic) do it all the time and Caro does (it) and now it’s racist.??’ she wrote. ‘At the end of the day I spend my time focused on things to become better and not bring me down,’ she continued.

Drake ‘asks judge to dismiss $16M lawsuit filed by New York nightclub investors after brutal brawl with Chris Brown’…

Drake has asked a judge to dismiss a case filed against him by stakeholders of a New York City nightclub neighboring the scene of his reported brawl with Chris Brown. The singers are believed to have clashed at W.i.P in June, with several partygoers emerging injured from flying bottles and fists as their entourages went head-to-head.

Bosses at Entertainment Enterprises, who own a large stake in its sister nightclub Greenhouse, claim they lost millions due to the ‘backlash of bad press’ after the fracas; but Drake says he’s not to blame and the case should be thrown out, according to TMZ.

Legal filings obtained by the website claim Greenhouse, which shares the same building and liquor license as W.i.P, has lost significant earnings since the incident, including a lucrative multi-million dollar deal.

Executives at Entertainment Enterprises are reportedly suing the entertainer for $16 million. So the 26-year-old Canadian is reportedly seeking to get the case dismissed. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Loved-up Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez begin their French vacation…

They arrived in Paris only yesterday. But Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez wasted no time in getting up and out on Sunday as the couple were seen happily strolling through the Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood. Wearing a pair of leather pants under a blue wool duffel coat, the Cloud Atlas actress smiled and blew kisses to a fan.

Halle, 46, is spending the holidays in the French capital with her fiance, Dark Tide actor Olivier, while her daughter Nahla remains in Los Angeles with her father. Walking hand-in-hand, the couple visited the historic church of St-Germain des Pres where philosopher René Descartes is buried.

Halle and Olivier have had a difficult few months that would any relationship to the test, but as they strolled through the 6th arrondissment, they looked more in love than ever.

Paris native Olivier had been hoping to return to his home country permanently with his American fiance, both of whom would like to trade in the Hollywood lifestyle for more low profile one.

The Frenchmen told Interview magazine he has no desire to be a movie star: ‘My goal is just… to get some interesting parts and make enough money to live free. Otherwise, to be a movie star, it’s a lot of compromise and also a lot of headaches.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Buxom Mariah Carey struggles to zip up her too-small jacket on yet another Aspen shopping trip…

Snow bunny: Mariah teamed her too-small jacket with a black top and skinny jeans tucked into furry black moon bootsShe is on her third shopping trip in as many days as she prepares for Christmas with her family. But one thing that doesn’t seem to have been on Mariah Carey’s shopping list thus far is a bigger jacket.

The curvaceous singer couldn’t zip-up her padded snow wear when she was spotted in Aspen, Colorado on Sunday. Mariah had attempted to do the tiny black jacket up, but gave up rather quickly as she struggled to contain her ample bosom.

The 42-year-old was also sporting a black top and blue skinny jeans tucked into furry black moon boots. She was seen at the Aspen Eclectic store browsing toys during the chilly evening.

It appears that Mariah was picking up some last minute Christmas gifts for her 19-month-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe. The diva was at least wearing attire appropriate for the snow, aside from the fact that her boots had heels, which was more than can be said for the other outfits she has sported during her stay.

On Saturday she indulged in some retail therapy while wearing a floor-length black and white check dress reminiscent of a tablecloth and a thick corset style belt. Visit Dailymail to continue reading…

‘I’ll never leave London’ says ‘proud Londoner’ Leona Lewis

Not Christmas style: Leona Lewis rocks casual military style while Christmas shopping with a friend in HollywoodThe old saying ‘anger in haste and repent at leisure’ can also be applied to celebrities who announce they are proud to belong to one country… but don’t think twice about going to live in another.

X-Factor alumni Leona Lewis is one of many performers guilty of pledging allegiance to one flag but choosing to beneath a different one.

The singer was quoted by a newspaper talking about how proud she is of her Hackney roots, but photographed shopping in Los Angeles on the same day.

And if that wasn’t enough evidence that the ‘Bleeding Love’ singer has made the move across the Atlantic, she also posted a photograph of her standing beside an enormous Christmas tree in her home.

In case anyone wondered whose tree it was, she helpfully captioned the photo ‘ma tree.’ [sic]

Her on-off boyfriend, German dancer Dennis Jauch also tweeted a picture of the same tree, and a car which he described as his ‘L.A ride’, which adds fuel to the speculations that they have selected Los Angeles as their permanent base. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

And the 23-year-old gymnast has revealed how he went on a crash diet two weeks before this weekend’s show to ensure he was in perfect shape to take to the dance floor.

He said: ‘I feel better for the fact I’ve been on a diet for the last two weeks. No carbs in the evening – only white meat or fish – and only couscous of fish in the afternoon with porridge and fruit in the morning. I’ve also been teetotal for the past two weeks.’ 

The star admitted he had no plans to continue with his strict diet now that the competition is over: ‘I can’t wait for Christmas. I can drink mulled wine, eat sausage rolls. I might even order a Chinese on Christmas Eve.’

But it seems Russell Simmons and his ex-wife Kimora Lee have hit upon the perfect solution – spending it together.

The two were spotted sharing breakfast in St Barts with their daughters Ming and Aoki, and her son Kenzo Hounsou on Sunday. And to complete the party after they dined Simmons headed off to pick up his girlfriend, German model Hana Nitsche.

The music mogul was spotted passionately greeting his 30-years-younger lover on a pier in Gustavia. The 55-year-old Def Jam founder considerately offered his hand to help the 26-year-old brunette carefully exit the small boat while clutching her small dog.

Simmons, whose net worth is estimated at $500 million, wore a nautical red-striped polo shirt, khaki shorts, and black sandals. Once safely on the dock, Russell embraced the smiling make-up free model, who was wearing a black tank maxi-dress over a green bathing suit.

He then made fun of how heavy her bags were as he dramatically hauled the black purse and suitcase away from the pier, much to Hana’s amusement. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Kanye West sits patiently at the nail bar as he waits for Kim Kardashian to get her Christmas pedicure…

There were those who suggested that Kim Kardashian‘s relationship with Kanye West was little more than a publicity stunt. But even the doubters must be convinced by the latest photos of the happy couple. Kanye is seen sitting patiently in a nail bar as he waits for Kim to have her pre-Christmas pedicure.

While even the most devoted husbands might wish themselves elsewhere, the multimillionaire rapper is seen filling his time making phone calls as he waits for his girlfriend. Considering Kim’s fondness for beauty salons, Kanye’s tolerance is surely a good sign for the future.

Kim wore a plain black jersey outfit for the low key trip, which clung to her hourglass curves. Her newly darkened hair was tied messily back, with a trip to the salon no doubt next on the list. Her boyfriend was equally casual, but added a red cap and blue sneakers to the mix.

Mariah Carey hangs on to bodyguard as she totters about snowy Aspen in sky high platforms…

Perhaps Mariah Carey should have worn more practical shoes. Leave it to the Glitter star to defy common sense and wear high-heeled platform boots in the slippery Aspen, Colorado snow. Mariah’s two bodyguards had their work set out for them as the curvy star cut a precarious path to her waiting SUV after another shopping spree on Christmas Eve.

Not only have they shadowed Mariah’s every move since she arrived in Aspen for the holidays, but they’ve prevented the voluptuous star from falling on her face. Mariah’s out of this world ensemble included the pair of black suede heels which seemed a good few inches high, as well as the chunky platform.

As seems to be her custom, Mariah also wore a too-tight green jacket over a clingy black top and black lycra pants that revealed every curve of her lower body. She wore two-tone shades that only partially concealed her large eyes, as well as earmuff headphones attached to her iPod.

The Manchester City ace’s relationship with Raffaella Fico, 24, has become a real life soap opera with the two having furious slanging matches since they split up in the spring following a year long relationship.

Earlier this month, former underwear model Raffaella gave birth to a baby girl called Pia, who was conceived just before the couple broke up. Initially, the player had demanded a DNA test to prove he was the father but then backtracked and said he was going to give their romance another try.

But now Balotelli, 22, has lashed out at Raffaella following an interview with Chi magazine earlier this month in which she said: ‘Mario for me is irresponsible. It came to a certain point where he was just not interested in anything, not in me, or our daughter. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

His mother Donda West tragically passed away at the age of 58 from complications during cosmetic surgery in 2007. But rapper Kanye West has clearly gained an affectionate new mother figure in the form of his girlfriend Kim Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner.

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez look less than merry as they wander around Paris together…

They arrived in Paris just in time for Christmas. And Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez wasted no time in getting up and out as the couple were seen happily strolling through the Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood on Sunday. But it seems that a Christmas without her little girl has started to take it’s toll on Halle and her beau, both 46, as when they stepped out on Thursday, they looked thoroughly miserable.

Nahla, five, has remained in Los Angeles with her father, Gabriel Aubry, 36, for the festivities and as any parent will tell you, Christmas without your child is hard. No doubt the idea of a romantic trip to Paris with your beau must’ve seemed just the ticket to take her mind of it but Halle’s face suggests this didn’t work.

Halle and Olivier have had a difficult few months that would any relationship to the test. Paris native Olivier had been hoping to return to his home country permanently with his American fiance, both of whom would like to trade in the Hollywood lifestyle for more low profile one.

The Frenchmen told Interview magazine he has no desire to be a movie star: ‘My goal is just… to get some interesting parts and make enough money to live free.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

The fashionista who has been busy promoting her latest fashion line in recent weeks admitted she has always dreamed of working in fashion, she said it can sometimes be difficult having to balance life as a working mother.

Nicole said: ‘Being in fashion is something that I have been dreaming about my whole life. I started out with jewelry because it was a smaller project and it’s closest to my heart.

‘I just have to wake up every morning and kind of prioritize and figure out what I need to focus on for the day. It’s a constant juggling act and it’s just what you have to do.’

It is believed 30-year-old Camila gave birth in Austin, Texas, where the two share a home. The happy couple have been together since 2006 but wed in June this year at their Texas home. McConaughey is currently filming The Dallas Buyers Club in New Orleans, but is thought to have been at Camila’s side for the birth.

The 43-year-old announced the news of his wife’s pregnacy the Independence Day weekend. ‘Happy birthday America.’ the actor tweeted. ‘More good news,Camila and I are expecting our 3rd child, God bless, just keep livin.’

He told People magazine of his children’s excitement when he told them about their new sibling: ‘When Camila and I told them the news there was a lot of dancing and a lot of singing,’ he said. ‘One of them wants a brother, the other one wants a sister and then they switch the next day.’

Movie Preview: Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes steam up the screen in ‘The Place Beyond the Pines’…

It’s small wonder Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes fell in love on the set.
The actors – and real-life lovers – star in the gritty drama The Place Beyond the Pines and it’s a crash-course collision of nonstop action, drama and romance too.

Ryan plays Luke, a motorcycle stunt driver who must provide for his ex-girlfriend, played by Eva, after he finds out she had their baby, and so falls into a life of robbing banks. It’s a gloomy, atmospheric film that reunites Ryan with his Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance, full of car chases and action-packed stunts.

It also stars Bradley Cooper as the cop-turned-politician who tries to stop Luke and Rose Byrne as long suffering wife Jennifer. As the guy with a lot on his shoulders, Ryan spends a lot of time looking his handsomely brooding even when he’s got bloody cuts on the face.

Eva smolders as Romina. Off screen, Eva and Ryan heated up as well and they are still dating despite their busy working schedules. It was because of Ryan, 32, that Eva, 38, even got the audition for Place Beyond the Pines.

‘I had asked Ryan about who he thought should be Romina,’ the director told Moviefone.com. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Interracial Music Video: Cheryl Cole debuts ‘Ghetto Baby’

Sultry: Cheryl sports sexy eye make-up as she stares into the camera for the videoThey’ve only been dating for a couple of months. But as Cheryl Cole prepares to ring in her first Christmas with boyfriend Tre Holloway, the Girls Aloud star has opened up about her love for the dancer – in a raunchy new video.

The video, for Hunger TV, sees Cheryl test out her rapping skills as she belts out lyrics such as ‘We’re a match made in Heaven, this kind of love’s forever’, as the pair indulge in a very raunchy PDA.

Cheryl and Tre are seen kissing, cuddling and performing some risque dance moves as the singer performs her new track Ghetto Baby. The most daring dance move comes when Tre lays on the floor, using his arms and legs to support himself off the ground, before Cheryl maneuvers her body into the same position and the pair attempt some hip grinding.

Wearing a variety of outfits including a plunging leotard and low-slung trousers, a revealing white dress and a bra top and white net skirt, Cheryl looks sultry and sexy in the footage.

Prior to making the video public at midnight on Christmas Eve, Cheryl tweeted her fans: ‘I love working with @rankinphoto so much that I did this exclusively for him, here it is for you … #MerryChristmas.’

Take a look at the ‘Ghetto Baby’ official video below:

Cheryl and Tre went public with their relationship around six months ago, and things have been going from strength to strength for the pair ever since.

So much so that Cheryl’s mother Joan Callaghan has been forced to step in and ban Tre from proposing to her daughter when the pair spend Christmas Day with his family in America.

Joan is said to think that it’s too soon for Cheryl to wed again, after Cheryl’s marriage to footballer Ashley Cole ended in 2010 after he cheated on her. Tre is Cheryl’s first serious boyfriend since the split and he has already won over her friends with the way he treats the ‘Call My Name’ hitmaker. However, a source told The Sun newspaper:

‘Tre, like scores of men, wants to marry Cheryl. But there is a lot of work to do to convince Joan he’s not in this for money or fame.’

Merry Xmas From KolorBlind Magazine!

Here’s our Christmas present to our readers: A Christmas dinner out of cake!

For millions of children, Christmas dinner means just one thing: the dreaded Brussels sprout. Wouldn’t it be nicer if the tiny offensive vegetables tasted of, say, cake? Which is precisely what Birmingham-based food artist Annabell de Vetten, 41, thought when she decided to craft a festive feast of turkey and all the trimmings entirely out of sponge cake, chocolate and buttercream icing.

Annabel, who created the masterpiece as part of an exhibition on display in London’s Imperial College, carved the meal entirely by hand in just a few hours, and used edible food paint to bring the piece to life.

Along with three other cake artists, Annabel showed off her skills and managed to pull off the Christmas dinner which went on display at Imperial on 13 December. Incredibly, British cake designer Annabel only turned her hand to cake art two years ago when she married her American husband Thom and needed a cake to celebrate the big day.

End result: ‘When I look back at how it all turned out, I’m really pleased and it’s actually better than I imagined’End result: 'When I look back at how it all turned out, I'm really pleased and it's actually better than I imagined'She painted everything from the sprouts to the tiny herbs on top of the roast turkey. For those with a sweet tooth, it’s the perfect opportunity to tuck into desert first as even the gravy and candles were made out of chocolate.Christmas cake? Annabel's spongecake dinner includes peas, Brussels sprouts, toast potatoes, carrots and pigs in blanketsTurkey and trimmings: Annabel painted everything from the sprouts to the tiny herbs on top of the roast turkey – even the gravy and candles were made out of chocolateTurkey and trimmings: Annabel painted everything from the sprouts to the tiny herbs on top of the roast turkey - even the gravy and candles were made out of chocolateThe two-tier white chocolate mud cake was a huge hit with her guests, and Annabel soon found herself with orders coming in from family and friends. She decided to put her skills into practice and set up her own business, Conjurer’s Kitchen, which she runs from her home in Kings Heath, Birmingham.

Annabel said: ‘The hardest part of it for me was getting the herbs to look like real herbs as I’d never done anything like that before. When I look back at how it all turned out, I’m really pleased and it’s actually better than I imagined.’

The idea behind the sweet dinner was that visitors to the exhibition would eat it – but in typically British fashion, people were too polite to touch the art, much less take great bites out of it.

Annabel said: ‘We took the dinner along to the exhibition for people to eat but to begin with everybody was a bit shy about trying tucking in. Once the first person tried a bit though, everybody else joined in and it was gone within 30 minutes.’

And just like other artists, Annabel worries about her work being damaged during delivery – especially if the delivery men are peckish.

She said: ‘It’s always a worry when it comes to delivering my work because you want to make sure it gets there in one piece. Myself and the other cake artists got really positive feedback from everybody who saw the dinner so it makes it all worthwhile.’

‘To be honest, even though I had to change the turkey about three times, the whole thing was really exciting from start to finish.’

President Obama named as TIME magazine‘s ‘Person of the Year’ for the second time in four years!

Iconic: President Barack Obama has been named as Time Magazine's Person of the Year for 2012President Barack Obama has been named TIME’s Person of the Year for 2012, allowing him the honor for the second time in four years.

The magazine cited the president’s historic re-election last month as symbolic of the nation’s changing demographics amid the backdrop of high unemployment and other challenges.

‘He’s basically the beneficiary and the author of a kind of new America – a new demographic, a new cultural America that he is now the symbol of,’ TIME editor Rick Stengel said as he announced the choice on the Today show on Wednesday.

‘He won re-election despite a higher unemployment rate than anybody’s had to face in basically 70 years. He’s the first Democrat to actually win two consecutive terms with over 50 per cent of the vote. That’s something we haven’t seen since Franklin Delano Roosevelt.’

The ‘Person of the Year’ accolade is given to the person or thing that has most influenced the culture and news throughout the year for good or for ill. Obama was named as Person of the Year in 2008, with Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and ‘The Protester’ filling the years in between.

This year, Obama edged out Malala Yousufzai, a Pakistani girl shot in the head by the Taliban for advocating girls’ education, for the honor. She was named as runner up. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

‘He’s the perfect choice to guide American diplomacy:’ Obama nominates Senator John Kerry as next secretary of state to replace Hillary Clinton…

President Barack Obama on Friday announced the nomination of U.S. Senator John Kerry to replace Hillary Clinton as secretary of state, calling him the ‘perfect choice’ to guide American diplomacy in the years ahead.

Obama settled on Kerry, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the 2004 Democratic presidential candidate, after U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice withdrew from consideration last week. He said he expected quick Senate confirmation of the Massachusetts lawmaker.

‘As we turn the page on a decade of war, he understands that we have to harness all elements of American power,’ Obama said at the White House.

The 69-year-old, who began his tenure in the Senate in 1985, is expected to be a shoo-in during the Congressional confirmation process and will fill the vacancy left by outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The announcement will come after the president’s top choice for the spot, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, took herself out of the running for the post given the controversy over her reaction to the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on September 11. The appointment of Sen. Kerry marks President Obama’s first major personnel change in his cabinet for his second term. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

President Obama turned to scripture and emotional pleas in an effort to comfort the families of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

‘You are not alone in your grief. Our world too has been torn apart,’ President Obama said.  ‘All across this land our world too has been torn apart. All across this land we wept with you and pulled our children tight. Newtown, you are not alone.’

In one of the most religious speeches of his presidency, Mr Obama talked about how the ultimate goal for a society is to protect their children.

‘If we don’t get that right, we don’t get anything right. By that measure, can we truly say as a nation that we are doing our obligations?’ he said.

‘We gather here in memory of 20 beautiful children and six remarkable adults. They lost their lives in a school that could have been any school in a quiet town full of good and decent people that could have been any town in America.’

‘All across this land of ours, we have wept with you. We’ve pulled our children tight, and you must know whatever measure of comfort we can provide, we will provide it.’

As expected, he made several references to the prospective- and likely- legal battles that will come as politicians fight for tougher restrictions on guns in the wake of the shooting. That said, he was clear to avoid specific plans, but took aim at the arguments made by activists who point to the Second Amendment‘s right to bare arms as a reason to keep guns accessible.

‘Are we prepared to say that such violence visited upon our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?’ he said.

A particularly poignant moment came in the speech when Mr Obama read the first names of all 20 children who died in the shooting. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Obama leaves message for football coach, teacher at Newtown High School!

Two staff members at Newtown High School in Connecticut were surprised to find a message left for them on a whiteboard on Sunday by President Barack Obama.

Newtown football coach Steve George and teacher Bob Pattison had left a note to Obama in a classroom that the president was using as a staging area before his speech at a memorial service for the 26 people — 20 of them children — slain during a mass shooting at Newtown’s Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday. It read:

Dear President Obama,
The Newtown community is so thankful that you are coming to help us heal. In times of adversity it is reassuring to know that we have a strong leader to help us recover.

-Steve George, teacher/football coach
-Bobby Pattison, teacher

George later tweeted that they’d found a reply from the president when they returned to the room

“You’re in our thoughts and prayers,”

White House: ‘President says he now supports bill to ban assault rifles!’

Presidential embrace: Mr Obama talked to grieving father Robbie Parker, appearing to connect on a personal level

Presidential embrace: Mr Obama talked to grieving father Robbie Parker

The White House has given its clearest indication yet that President Obama will do everything in his power to reinstate a ban on assault weapons following Friday’s horrific massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.

After keeping relatively quiet about gun control during his first term, the President is now poised to push for new gun control measures.

Obama has long backed such a ban, but the White House has said the president can’t act alone and until now there has been little appetite in Congress to enact new gun laws.

Then on Sunday, Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein announced that she plans to introduce legislation to reinstate the ban early in the new year.

Senator Feinstein said the bill would ‘aim at limiting the sale, transfer and possession of assault weapons, along with the capacity of high-capacity magazines.’ She said that her bill – along with a similar bill in the House of Representatives – will be proposed on the first day of the next Congress when politicians return after the holidays.

White House spokesman Jay Carney says Obama would ‘actively support’ Feinstein’s bill and would also support legislation to close the gun show ‘loophole,’ which allows people to buy guns from private dealers without background checks. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

President Obama appointing Vice President Joe Biden to head a task force to push for gun policy change…

President Barack Obama will announce on Wednesday that Vice President Joe Biden will lead an effort to come up with policies to address gun violence amid calls for action following the massacre of 26 people including 20 children in a Connecticut elementary school last week.

The president is not expected to announce policy decisions but rather lay out the process by which his administration will move forward, White House aides said. Obama has turned to Biden in the past to take a role in high-profile policy initiatives, such as efforts to seek a deficit-reduction compromise with congressional Republicans in 2011.

Biden’s mission – to coordinate a process among government agencies to formulate policies in the wake of the Newtown shootings – comes just days after an event that appears to have generated a national outcry for greater efforts to stem gun violence. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Gun and done: Guns cover tables in front of New Jersey Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa, center, in Camden

Deeply affected by the massacre at Sandy Hook, gun owners in Camden, New Jersey, America’s deadliest town, turned in a record number of weapons in a buy back scheme over the weekend.

1,137 firearms including an elephant-gun were handed in on Friday and Saturday at two churches in the crime-plagued town as the ramifications of the mass child killings in Connecticut seemed to inspire residents to give up their arms.

‘We heard that there were a number of gun owners on Saturday who had publicly said, in light of the situation that had just occurred in Connecticut, they wanted to turn in their weapons,’ Paul Loriquet, a spokesman for the Camden police, said in an interview with Philly.Com

Among the weapons handed in were scores of rifles, shotguns and pistols, sawed-off shotguns, a century-old antique weapon, a rifle used for hunting elephants and five fully automatic weapons. Some 90 per cent were in working condition. Many were illegal weapons under state laws; some were so-called community guns stashed around the neighborhood. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Robert De Niro: ‘Time for tough guys to drop their guns!’

Robert De Niro is full of support for President Obama’s determination to combat gun violence in America.

The two-time Oscar-winner told me: ‘There should be more control. It has just gotten out of hand, how easily you can get guns. The elephant gun in the room was the tremendous amount of money wrapped up in weapons ‘whether in this country or anywhere in the world’.

De Niro, who is in the running for a third Academy Award for his performance (his best in years) as Bradley Cooper’s sports-obsessed father in Silver Linings Playbook, also shares concerns about ‘gratuitous’ violence in movies. De Niro has appeared in films that spoke to America’s love of weapons: Martin Scorsese’s Mean Streets and Goodfellas; Francis Ford Coppola’s second Godfather picture.

But these were cinema landmarks, showing gun crime as a symbol of the U.S.’s criminal underpinning — not mindless schlock. The actor indicated that he didn’t disagree with slapdowns on unnecessary gun use in movies.

‘I think a lot of stuff is gratuitous, and I don’t like it personally. If there’s a reason for it, and it is what it is, then that’s what it is. It’s a complicated one.’

But he cautioned that ‘movies are like dreams’, which is why ‘you have to be careful’ with censorship. ‘Seeing things that are done in movies are like dreams,’ he told me. They allow people a kind of therapeutic release.

‘You see things you couldn’t do in normal life. It’s a collective dream for an audience. It’s not like it’s real — they know it’s not real.’ Or most of them do. ‘Unfortunately, there are some people who take it as real. They’re unbalanced, unhinged, or whatever.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Americans remember Sandy Hook school shooting victims with a moment of silence…

Americans have remembered the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre with a moment of silence this morning. Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy had called for the state’s residents to observe the moment at 9:30am to mark a week since 20-year-old Adam Lanza killed his mother and then stormed the Newtown school, where he shot to death 20 children and six adults before killing himself.

Malloy’s fellow governors in Maine, Illinois, Michigan and several other states called on residents to follow suit with a moment of silence and rang bells to remember the dead. The National Cathedral in Washington rang its bell 28 times as part of an interfaith memorial. ‘We have the moral obligation to stand for and with the victims of gun violence and to work to end it,’ said Reverend Gary Hall, dean of Washington National Cathedral.

He called on Americans to pray ‘that we may have courage to act, so that the murderous violence done on Friday may never be repeated.’ The company that operates the Nasdaq stock exchange halted operations to observe a moment of silence at 9:30am, although the market opened trading at that time as usual.
The observances came just before a powerful U.S. gun rights lobbying group plunges into the national debate over gun control. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

‘My heart aches for you': Michelle Obama pens open letter to Newton after Sandy Hook massacre…

Michelle Obama has written an open letter to Newtown as the community struggles to come to terms with one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history. The First Lady penned words of comfort to the small Connecticut town which is today enduring more funerals after the attack on Sandy Hook elementary school one week ago.

Last Friday, 20 children and six teaching staff were killed by a gunman who then took his own life. The shooter had earlier killed his mother Nancy Lanza at her home.

Mrs Obama wrote: ‘I cannot begin to imagine the depths of your grief. I know that for many of you, the pain you are enduring right now seems unbearable. However she said that the community would slowly heal based on ‘the countless acts of courage, kindness and love here in Newtown and across America’.

Six funerals and two wakes have been scheduled for today. A moment of silence for the victims took place at 9.30am this morning.  Governor Dan Malloy, Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman and Newtown First Selectman Patricia Llodra met on the steps of Newtown town hall as bells from Trinity Episcopal Church rang 26 times for each life lost at Sandy Hook.

Adorable child’s advice to Michelle Obama on what to get President Obama: “You should get him an iPad!”

Bo

First pet: Bo Obama, the Portuguese Water Dog, sat happily on Mrs Obama’s lap throughout the reading

One excited child listening to first lady Michelle Obama read from ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas‘ offered sage advice over what to get her husband for Christmas. The boy recommended that the first lady get President Obama and iPad or an iPad mini.

But Mrs Obama was keeping quiet on Christmas gifts for the president. She would only promise that Mr Obama would receive ‘something nice.’

She said if she says anything: ‘they’re going to print it into the papers tomorrow,’ pointing to news cameras.

The first lady was joined by first dog Bo at the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, and read a group of children ‘A Visit From St Nicholas.’ Bo sat on her lap during the reading, and was dressed in a holiday collar.

One boy recommended an iPad or an iPad mini. The first lady promised ‘it will be something nice.’ Mrs Obama did not address Friday’s deadly shooting at a Connecticut elementary school and spoke shortly before her husband addressed the nation.

Her visit was part of a tradition by first ladies dating back to Bess Truman.

First Lady Michelle Obama and Jenna Bush reveal their favorite things about Christmas at the White House…

Former first daughter Jenna Bush spent scores of Christmases at the White House while her grandfather and father were President. So she was more than qualified to sit down with Michelle Obama to compare notes about the holidays at America’s most famous address.

During the interview, aired this morning on Today, Bush recounted treasured memories including helping her grandmother, Barbara Bush, put the star on the tree when she was a child. Meanwhile, Mrs Obama said the smells and sounds of the White House and opening it up to the public were the most magical things of the festive season for her.

‘It’s the most special time to be in the White House,’ Mrs Obama said. ‘It is the one time of the year when the White House really opens up. We have thousands and thousands of visitors streaming through each day.

‘Everything looks great. The smells are magnificent. I feel very blessed to be able to be here during these times.’

The First Lady said her daughters, Sasha and Malia, equally loved the holidays but were less involved now they’re getting older. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Adorable never-before-seen photo shows President Obama caught in the web of Spider-Man (as played by one of his staffer’s children)…

This is President Obama as we have never seen him before – caught unawares as he walks out of the Oval Office by none other than Spider-Man – or at least a very mini version of Spider-Man.

The intimate photograph taken by White House photographer Pete Souza shows the President joking around with one of this staffer’s children, who – dressed up as the super hero – pretends to shoot a spider web at Obama – who in turn reacts by pretending he is caught up in the imaginary trap.

It is just one of the many behind-the-scenes pictures Mr Souza takes every year which show a more down-to-earth and touching side of the man who has just been named as TIME’s Person of the Year for 2012. It is the second time he has had the honor in four years.

Other pictures released by Souza, some of which have been seen before, show the President enjoying touching moments with his family – a loving father hugging his daughters Malia and Sasha at this year’s DNC, an affectionate husband pulling his First Lady Michelle tight as they watch a sunset over Chicago city skyline at Lake Michigan and as a big kid running around a swimming pool with a large water gun while daughter Sasha squirts water at him.

We also see a happy but exhausted Obama as he pulls off his bow tie in the mirror of the elevator to the Private Residence of the White House after a long day which included being sworn in as President in January 2009, followed by ten inaugural balls. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

President Obama: ‘My daughters think Gangnam Style is cheesy!’

Don't embarrass me, Dad! The President with Malia during the National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony at the White House on December 6The President has admitted that he loves the PSY track Gangnam Style, much to his two daughters’ embarrassment.

In an interview with People, Barack Obama says he does the South Korean rapper’s infamous dance at home in the White House, with the sole purpose of winding up Malia, 14 and Sasha, 11.

He tells the new issue of the magazine: ‘They’re cooler than I am. There are things I like that they think are cheesy, like Gangnam Style. I love that.’

Even his wife admits it is ‘a little embarrassing’ when he attempts to do the routine – and indeed, he warns the reporter that he won’t be doing any impromptu performances. The President also discussed how he feels about his daughters dating.

Though he has joked in the past about employing Secret Service officers to keep boys away from Malia, she ‘actually doesn’t pay any attention to what I say.’ And in truth, he says he and the First Lady trust both their daughters’ judgement implicitly, because they have set such a good example of a relationship themselves.

President Obama on fiscal cliff: ‘Everybody has got to give a little bit’…

President Obama has called on Congress to return from their Christmas holidays and approve his proposal to extend the tax rate for 98 percent of Americans and avert the so called ‘fiscal cliff’.

Speaking this evening at a White House press conference, the president said he had spoken with House Speaker John Boehner and Senate majority Leader Harry Reid and implored them to put together a legislative package that would extend the George W. Bush tax rates for those earning $250,000 or less.

‘All of us, every single one of us, agree that tax rates shouldn’t go up for the other 98% of Americans,’ Obama said, ‘Every member of Congress believes that.’

‘Now is not the time for more self-inflicted wounds, certainly not coming from Washington,’ said the president about the need for congressional leaders to come up with a smaller fiscal package in the next 10 days.

Issuing a stern summons to congressional leaders Friday to approve legislation before the year’s end President Obama is trying to prevent the nation from falling over the ‘fiscal cliff’. One day after House anti-tax rebels torpedoed Republican legislation because it would raise rates on million-dollar-earners, Obama said he still wants a bill that requires the well-to-do to pay more.

Barbara Walters records ‘retirement’ interview with President Obama

She infamously told President Barack Obama last year she needed one more interview with him before retirement. So could Barbara Walters be hanging up her microphone in the near future after having yet another festive chinwag with the world’s most powerful man? The chummy pair sat next to a Christmas tree and shared tall tales as they became wrapped up in the festive spirit.

But they covered more serious matters too, with Barack explaining to the 81-year-old his thoughts of how federal law enforcement officials should tackle recreational marijuana use in Colorado and Washington, where it has recently been legalized at the state level.

The former cannabis smoker said they should not be a ‘top priority’ of federal law enforcement officials prosecuting the war on drugs, saying: ‘We’ve got bigger fish to fry.’

Barack said: ‘It would not make sense for us to see a top priority as going after recreational users in states that have determined that it’s legal.’

The statement was quite the scoop for Barbara, who last year was caught telling the President the surprise reason why she wanted another powwow with him.

She said: ‘I need one more interview with you because I’m retiring next year.’

It was quickly cleared up that she was only joking about the matter, with the senior vice president of ABC Jeff Schneider speaking out to clear up the confusion. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Soledad O’Brien to gun advocate John Lott: ‘Your position boggles my mind’…

Soledad O’Brien clashed with gun advocate John Lott in the aftermath of Friday’s horrific shooting, telling him that his position “boggles her mind.”

Twenty-seven victims — including twenty elementary schoolchildren — were shot and killed in a tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Lott, a vocal pro-gun commentator, appeared on CNN Friday night and argued in favor of eliminating all gun laws.

“How does that possibly make sense to you?” O’Brien asked Lott on Monday’s “Starting Point.”

He alleged that mass shootings have taken place in areas where guns are banned, and pointed to the site of the Aurora, Colorado shooting as an example.

“Let me stop you there,” O’Brien interjected. She said that there was absolutely no evidence that the gunman chose that area because it banned guns. Later, she asked:

“Why is your take away from all of this to get rid of gun laws, and your take away is not to say there are people who should not have access to certain types of weapons? In this particular case, we know that he used a semiautomatic rifle to blow out the glass wall at the entrance to the school.”

“So the security was useless. Why? Because he had a high velocity multi-shot with many rounds with him to be able to access the school. Why would you not say that’s exactly the kind of weapon that someone should not be able to easily get his hands on?” Visit Huffington Post to continue reading…

College football player kicked off team for ‘racist’ anti-Obama tweet moaning after Sandy Hook tribute…

Dismissed: North Alabama football player Bradley Patterson was dropped from the team after posting a racist tweet Sunday aimed at President ObamaA North Alabama football player was dismissed from the team after posting a racist tweet Sunday aimed at President Obama while he spoke at the memorial for the Newtown massacre victims.

Bradley Patterson, the Lions’ third-string long-snapper, was apparently frustrated that Obama’s speech was interrupting NBC’s coverage of Sunday Night Football.

‘Take that n***** off the tv, we wanna watch football!’ Patterson wrote on his Twitter account, which has since been deleted.

The tweet was sent while Obama was addressing the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, where 20 children and six adults were murdered by gunman Adam Lanza.

Team management quickly responded to Patterson’s tweet by dropping him from the team.  North Alabama athletic director Mark Linder issued a statement on his Twitter account later Sunday evening condemning Patterson’s comments.

‘Thx 2 everyone who brought the inappropriate tweet to our attention,’ Linder wrote. ‘@UNAAthletics does not condone. He is no longer a member of the team.’

Patterson joined the North Alabama football program four weeks into the 2012 season as a walk-on. He was a non-scholarship player who never dressed for games and was never listed on the team’s roster. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

School lunch lady fired for feeding student who couldn’t afford meals…

A school cafeteria worker in Missouri lost her job after giving away free food to a student in need. Dianne Brame, 60, had been sneaking hot meals to fourth grader who always came without money to lunch at Hudson Elementary in Webster Groves, St Louis County.

The boy had previously been on the free lunch program but Brame believes his parents didn’t understand how to reapply for the new school year. When Brame’s employers found out that she had been giving out food against regulations she lost the job she had loved for the past two years.

Brame told Fox 2 now how much she enjoyed her work: ‘I knew kids by their names, I knew their likes and dislikes, so it was just fun.’

When she noticed the one boy always had the standard plain cheese sandwich, which is given to children with no lunch money, Brame began to worry.

‘Kids can be cruel to see this kid eating cheese sandwiches day after day after day. [They said] “You don’t have any money in your account, that’s why you have to eat cheese sandwiches.” And my heart just couldn’t tolerate that, so I broke the rule.’ she told Kmov.

So Brame began bending regulations to feed the boy hot meals. But this was dimly viewed by her employers, Chartwell’s School Dining Services.

Brame explained: ‘I let his account get over $45 which I’m only supposed to let it get over $10, and I started letting him come through my lunch line without putting his number in, and they look at that as stealing. I thought it was just taking care of a kid.’

Her supervisor gave Brame a stark choice – to take a demotion at another school or lose her job. As she explains, she could only take a job within walking distance so told her supervisor to sack her. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Tragic: Belcher is seen here with his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins, 22, and their baby daughter ZoeyKansas City Chief’s linebacker Jovan Belcher who shot his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins 15 times before taking his own life earlier this month, apparently told his secret girlfriend that he would shoot Perkins ‘if she didn’t leave him alone.’

Belcher, 25, was having an intimate relationship with the other woman who is believed to be called Britnni Glass and told her in a text message around early November that if Perkins didn’t leave him alone he would take her life, the report said. The woman thought the text was a joke.

Furthermore, it is alleged that Jovan Belcher is reported to have had drinks and dinner with Glass before he arrived home, shot his girlfriend after a blazing row, and then ended his own life.

Belcher shot Perkins, 22, at least ten times after an argument in their house and then turned a gun on himself about 15 minutes later outside the Chief’s practice facility as head coach Romeo Crennel, General Manager Scott Pioli and other staff looked on.

Details of the Belcher case are contained in police reports submitted to the Jackson County prosecutor, who has ruled the event a murder-suicide. They include dozens of interviews with witnesses. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

On hand to support her boyfriend Danny Simpson as his team Newcastle United took on Manchester City, the 24-year-old was all smiles during the 90 minute match.

Tense: Tulisa was seen biting her bottom lip as she paid close attention to the gameFitting comfortably into the WAG lifestyle, Tulisa arrived at the stadium in a quilted leather jacket, grey top and jeans as she wrapped a black scarf around her neck.
Wearing her dark hair down in a side parting, the Sight Of You singer sported a full face of make-up minus her favored bright pink lipstick as she held a pouch of Capri-Sun.

As she took to her seat, Tulisa appeared to be waving at someone although it’s not clear whether it was in fact Danny.

Tulisa, who has become an overnight football fan, did not loose focus during the game and kept her eye on the ball at all times. The X Factor judge was seen biting her bottom lip as her presence failed to be the good luck charm Simpson and his team needed.

Happy 2nd wedding anniversary Nicole Richie and Joel Madden!

Nicole Richie is a lucky woman! On Dec. 11, the day of their 2nd wedding anniversary, the fashion designer’s husband, Good Charlotte rocker Joel Madden, posted a sweet note celebrating their union on Tumblr:

“We just spent a few days off the grid celebrating our second wedding anniversary. Sometimes I keep it to myself and sometimes I can’t help myself and I gotta tell the whole world how much I love her,” Madden, wrote. “This is one of those times. I can’t help it.”

He continued: “I feel like the luckiest man alive to have my wife and kids. When the world outside breaks me down, they build me back up. Hope everyone out there finds this kind of love.”

The couple tied the knot in a winter-themed ceremony in Beverly Hills in December 11, 2010 after a four-year courtship. Run-DMC rapper and reality star Rev. Run officiated and celebrities Khloe Kardashian and Samantha Ronson attended.

In the March issue of Ocean Drive, Fashion Star mentor Richie, 31, said she and Madden were “polar opposites” when they first got together.

“He’s very family-oriented,” she explained. “He grew up with four brothers and sisters. When we met, I was definitely going through a difficult time with my family, and having him have such a strong foundation really opened the doors and brought both of our families together.”

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez take Nahla to ‘Disney On Ice’

French actor Olivier Martinez and fiance Halle Berry took Nahla to Disney On Ice in a bid to look like the perfect little family. Halle, Olivier and four-year-old Nahla was spotted at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Thursday and looked like they were doing their best to put their recent troubles behind them.

They seemed to be putting the little girl first and concentrating on giving her the perfect Christmas instead of bitterly squabbling over custody rights with Halle’s ex Aubry. At one point Olivier, 46, touched his own face gently while talking to Nahla – possibly pointing at an old scar or blemish.

Then Halle bought her little girl a purple princess crown and the cute curly-haired youngster eagerly put it on and happily sat through the rest of the show.

The Oscar winning actress was wearing black jeans, a black baggy jumper and black flat knee high boots. Her cropped hair was styled in a semi quiff and she accessorized with a patterned scarf. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Donald Faison and Cacee Cobb are officially man and wife! Sixteen months after announcing their engagement, the Scrubs star, 38, and Jessica Simpson’s former personal assistant, 35, tied the knot at actor Zach Braff’s home in California on Saturday, Dec. 15.

Simpson — who is pregnant with her second child — served as one of Cobb’s bridesmaids, wearing a black dress and carrying a bouquet of red roses. The 31-year-old singer’s separated parents, Tina and Joe Simpson, her fiance, Eric Johnson, and her younger sister, Ashlee Simpson, also attended the ceremony.

She’s been dressed in head-to-toe for the past two weeks and her best friend’s wedding was no exception.  In fact, while the other bridesmaids wore purple and blue, Jessica Simpson – who is reported to be expecting again – wore the most slimming color of them of all to perform her duties.

Sources told E! News that the ceremony, for which bridesmaid Jessica was escorted down the aisle by Faison’s Scrubs co-star Zach Braff, was short and sweet and filled with laughter. Cacee looked ever ready to play the role of the bride in a soft white ruffled gown with a studded bodice with her blonde hair in long loose curls and wearing minimal jewelry.

Jessica and the bridesmaids enjoyed a bit of freedom with their outfits, opting for elegant gowns in different colors. Jessica, who gave birth to first daughter Maxwell in May, displayed a slightly swollen tummy.

Faison — whose film and TV credits include Clueless, Remember the Titans, Waiting to Exhale, Felicity and Can’t Hardly Wait — has three children with ex-wife Lisa Askey, and one son from a previous relationship. Cobb first rose to fame in 2004 on MTV’s Newlyweds while working for Simpson. Visit Dailymail to continue reading…

Kris Humphries falls flat in Funny or Die video… meant to show his ‘genius’ side…

Brooklyn Nets star and Kim Kardashian ex, Kris Humphries can do a lot of things, but comedy is not one of them. Humphries appears in a ‘secret’ new Funny or Die video clip that shows him tackling some of the world’s biggest issues.

The video, which is meant to reveal the ‘genius’ side of the basketball player, shows him appearing as a chess wizard, a master at Battleship, and a spelling guru, among other things. He also takes on some bigger issues including the Greek debt crisis and the world’s massive global warming problem, but none of it is exactly funny.

‘I hope no one sees this and realizes I’m more than just a basketball player,’ Humphries boasts during the unfortunate clip.

Unfortunately, the video was posted on-line for the world to see and it doesn’t do him any favors. The NBA power forward, who was married to Kardashian for 72 days, is no stranger to Funny or Die. In May he appeared in another clip that mocked Kim’s latest love, Kanye West.

Catfights mar Naomi Campbell and Coco Rocha’s new reality series ‘The Face’…

Model mediator: Show host Nigel Barker is the 'only one who gets along with everyone,' a source says

Model mediator: Show host Nigel Barker is the ‘only one who gets along with everyone,’ a source says

Surely the producers knew this would happen. Looks like Naomi Campbell is already ruffling some feathers as rumors are flying that she’s causing fights between between co-hosts Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova on the set of the threesome’s new reality show, ‘The Face.’

The trio serve as mentors on the show as contestants prove they have what it takes to rule the catwalk. The British supermodel, 42, has reportedly fallen out with 24-year-old Coco over the Canadian beauty’s ‘straight-laced’ nature, according to the New York Post.

‘There were some issues with Coco being on time and Naomi not being on time,’ a source told the Post’s Page Six.

Coco is also a Jehovah’s Witness and doesn’t drink, which is stark in nature to Naomi’s bad girl persona. According to the Post, host Nigel Barker, of ‘America’s Next Top Model’ fame, is serving as mediator between the ladies.

‘Nigel is the only one who gets along with everyone,’ the source said. ‘He’s been left as the host and the referee. You’ve got three models, all at different stages of their careers and different ages, and they are really not getting along.’

‘It’s a competition show, and none of them are used to losing.’Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

A bit of a handful: Matt struggled when the little one started to squirm as they made their way to their carIt look like Matt Damon was living up to the name of his most famous character on Friday. For his daughter Gia was Bourne by her daddy after they touched down in New York.

No doubt the ambrosial four-year-old was tired after enduring a flight to the Big Apple’s JFK Airport, so the kindhearted star decided to lend her his support.

The strapping star put his action man muscles to good use as he walked with his children and wife Luciana to their waiting transport.

His wife carried their youngest child Stella, two, while his Luciana’s daughter from her first marriage Alexia kept a protective arm wrapped around her adorable six-year-old half-sister Isabella.

The trio looked rather weary, but Matt will no doubt be raring to go when he gets the chance to promote his forthcoming movie ‘Promised Land’.

Spotted: Cheryl Cole and Tre Holloway step out for a romantic dinner after watching Kimberley Walsh in action…

They’d spent the evening watching Kimberley Walsh strut her stuff on Strictly Come Dancing. But Cheryl Cole and Tre Holloway evidently decided a bit of couple time was in order as they stepped out on a romantic dinner date on Saturday night after filming for the BBC One show wrapped.

The 29-year-old singer looked effortlessly chic, if a little cold, in a loose-fitting nude shift dress as she headed out for a bite to eat with her dancer beau. Completing her date night look with a pair of matching pointed stiletto heels, the Girls Aloud singer looked pretty as a picture as she stepped out on the arm of her man.

Cheryl kept her dark brunette hair extensions tumbling in loose waves around her shoulders, while opting for natural make-up. And while there is no denying the star looked her typically stunning self, she looked more than a little chilly after choosing to go coat-less on a cold London night.

No need for a bikini here when a sexy playsuit will do the trick. Dutch model Doutzen Kroes sizzled on set in a light blue one-piece as she modeled for the Victoria’s Secret swim line.

Kroes – who is married to Dutch DJ Sunnery James and has a one-year-old son named Phyllon Joy Gorre – kept a hat on hand as she let her naturally wavy blonde locks fly in the wind.

After frolicking around and sneaking in a few hair flips, the 27-year-old opted to keep her clothes on as she a swapped into a mini green cover-up dress. In her third wardrobe change, the mother-of-one let the cameras peek at her rock hard abs in a crop top orange striped tee and peek-a-boo grey shorts.

In between takes, Doutzen took a rest from the endless sunlight, carrying an umbrella as her hair and minimal make-up was touched up by several stylists on hand.

On Friday, she posted a candid shot on Instagram of herself on the sand as the waves crashed behind her, enjoying the sunlight in a rolled up sleeveless white tee and a billowy blue printed maxi skirt. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Sofia Vergara hides outfit beneath bathrobe on set of new Pepsi commercial!

She is not one known for demurely covering up. So no doubt fans of Sofia Vergara will be wondering just what she was wearing underneath her bathrobe on the set of a new Pepsi commercial in Los Angeles on Saturday.

The sizzling Colombian actress wore crimson red lipstick and full make-up as she pranced around in the downtown area of the city, which suggests her attire may have been something quite spectacular.

The Modern Family favorite is the face of the diet version of the drink, and has already appeared in a bikini in one saucy beach-based advert, and as a dancing girl in another. And it appears she worked up quite the appetite during filming, as she was spotted eating a banana as she left for the day.

There will be much anticipation to find out just what she has been up to while surrounded by the city’s biggest skyscrapers. However it is doubtful it will top the 40-year-old mother-of-one’s racy antics in her latest movie role. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Chelsee Healey steps out for yet another night on the town in bright pink chest-revealing frock…

Chanelling Barbie? The Waterloo Road star wore the jagged top and skirt with matching bright pink heels and lipstickShe’s hardly known for setting the fashion world alight. But even multiracial Chelsee Healey seems to have outdone herself with her latest atrocity of an outfit.

The Waterloo Road actress stepped out on Sunday night sporting a bright pink ensemble which made her appear to be channeling a Barbie doll.

The 24-year-old decided to hit the town in Manchester for yet another evening out. And true to form she ensured all eyes were on her in a garish outfit made to make her stand out.

Although she drew attention for all the wrong reasons as she hit a bum note in the bright pink skirt and matching jagged edged top.

Chelsee even wore sparkly pink heels and lashings of pastel lipstick to finish off the theme of her ensemble. And even her accessories seemed to be in bad taste, carrying a large silver clutch bag, while she adorned her neck and ears with large jewelry.

But she didn’t seem to mind drawing looks thanks to her eye popping outfit, which was cut to show off her cleavage. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Jessica Ennis: “All the women I used to admire on TV were thin”…

Body confident: Jessica Ennis looked stunning in a Victoria Beckham red dress which showcased her figure at the Sports Personality of the Year awardsAfter her stunning appearance in a red dress on Sunday night’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards, Jessica Ennis was praised for her curvy figure with people hailing her as the ‘rear of the year’.

The athlete showcased her derriere in a figure-hugging Victoria Beckham dress which even helped her outshine the Duchess of Cambridge as they stood together on stage.

But Jessica, who was voted the runner-up in last night’s ceremony, said she hasn’t always been so body confident and growing up, always wanted to be skinny instead of muscular.

‘When I first started doing weight training I didn’t want to be any good at it because I didn’t want to be all muscley as all the women I admired on telly were thin,’ she told The Sun.

She said it was her coach, Toni Minichiello, who taught her how to love her Olympic body by encouraging her to see that being muscular would help her be a champion – and a gold medal would be worth the sacrifice of ‘looking like everyone else’.

‘He said that if I had more muscles than the average woman, but won an Olympic gold medal, it would be worth it. He was right. I see that now,’ she said.

However Jessica said it was hard to accept this when she was younger when all her peers and the people they looked up to were skinny. ‘The problem with the traditional non-sporting women in the media is that most of them are size zero,’ she said. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Katherine Heigl: ‘I wouldn’t recommend’ having 7 dogs and 2 kids!’

Katherine Heigl, daughters and dogsAn ardent animal lover and advocate, Katherine Heigl has happily opened up her home and heart to seven canine companions – but she’s the first to admit it’s not always easy.

“Yeah, I wouldn’t recommend that,” the actress jokes to PEOPLE. “I really love these dogs, but it’s a lot with two little kids.”

After purchasing her first three dogs – schnauzers Romeo, Stella and Wheezer – Heigl became aware of Los Angeles’s growing overpopulation problem, and began rescuing pooches as a result.

“The first dog I rescued was my dog Piper, who is pretty much the most amazing dog on the planet,” she says. “It was a chance thing. I was walking down the street in my neighborhood and there was a woman with these two beautiful puppies that had been rescued from somebody’s backyard…

“I just thought, ‘This dog is beautiful, and I can take another dog,’ and so I did, and then the train started rolling.”

The overpopulation revelation is also what led Heigl, who alongside her mother Nancy runs the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, to her latest animal welfare venture, Just One pet products. A portion of the proceeds from the line’s collars will go towards helping spay and neuter animals to prevent unnecessary euthanizing of shelter pets. Visit People to continue reading…

Naomi Campbell is suing the Daily Telegraph for libel over an article claiming she organised an elephant polo tournament in India. A spokeswoman for Campbell emphatically denied that the model, who campaigns against animal cruelty, had planned an elephant polo tournament in Jodhpur as stated by the article on 3 November.

Inside single Seal new $6m bachelor pad in Los Angeles…

Nearly a year after his surprising split from supermodel wife Heidi Klum, Seal has made an expensive move towards getting on with his life. The Kiss from a Rose singer is reported to have just made an offer on a sprawling $6m house in the trendy Brentwood section of Los Angeles.

The 49-year old was seen visiting the home last week, for a third time. According to TMZ, the father-of-four put in a formal offer following his third visit. The modern, three level house has four bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, a media room, gym, and two kitchens.

Seal and Heidi split last January.  Three months later, his estranged wife filed for divorce citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ in her legal petition. The couple have four children, Leni, seven, Henry, six, Johan, five, and two-year-old Lou, together.

According to the documents filed by Heidi’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, the couple signed a post-nuptial agreement. This means they made an agreement after they got married to keep their assets completely separate. And so there is no community property to be divided, according to sources.

Madonna sports pencil skirt and see-through shirt for date night…

Smiles all round: Both Madonna and Brahim appeared to be in good spirits, flashing wide beaming smiles as they left the restaurantShe’s not exactly known for her toned-down looks. So when it came to choosing a demure outfit for a date night with boyfriend Brahim Zaibat in Buenos Aires on Sunday night, Madonna did her best to go for a ladylike ensemble – with a sexy twist.

The 54-year-old singer teamed her black pencil skirt and studded sandals with a sheer black shirt, revealing her lacy basque underneath.

Madonna finished off her ensemble with a beaming smile as she left the Gala Tango restaurant alongside her equally cheery toyboy beau Brahim, who topped off his jeans and T-shirt combo with a leather jacket.

The singer’s positive attitude could also have something to do with the fact it has just been announced that her MDNA tour is the highest-grossing tour of 2012. Madonna’s 72 shows in the year from November 9, 2011, to November 13 2012 were all sell outs, making $228,406,085 according to Billboard magazine.

The world tour – which started in Israel in May and ends this Saturday in Argentina – has been seen by over 1.6 million people. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Rapper AP.9 to Ice-T: ‘I’m not afraid of you!’

Taunt: AP.9 refused to deny an affair with Coco Austin and told Ice-T he is not afraid of himHis nose has already been rubbed in the dirt after pictures emerged of his wife getting up close and personal with another man. And rap legend Ice-T will surely be furious after his love rival AP.9 refused to deny he was having an affair with Coco Austin.

The hip-hop favorite even taunted the elder statesman of the genre, boasting how he is not afraid of him. After being asked by TMZ whether the rumors he is sleeping with the reality television star are true, he gave a cryptic answer.

He said: ‘That’s a RUMOR? Is that a rumor? No comment man.’

And surely afraid of losing his credibility in the macho world of rap, he insisted he is not worried about any potential showdowns with Ice-T, real name Tracy Marrow.

The star, whose real name is Kenneth Huddleston, said: ‘I’m from the hood … I’m not worried about nothin’.’

It comes after the couple put on a united front at an art event last week. They attended the Last Rite’s Gallery in New York, putting on a smiling display as they happily posed for the cameras.Ice-T was said to be furious over the snaps, which show Coco smirking at the camera and wrapping her arm around AP.9 as he plants a kiss on her cheek and burrows his face in her neck.

Mr Murdoch, 81, said his mother ‘lived entirely’ for her late husband Sir Keith Murdoch, who died six decades ago, and she never remarried because she did not find herself in love with anyone but him.

‘She knew we started out with many advantages in life, but the greatest advantage was the one she gave us all – we knew that we were loved,’ the News Corp CEO told the cathedral.

‘It was OK to stumble,’ he said of his mother, who died on December 5 aged 103. ‘She just wanted to make sure we understood the gravity of our actions and the impact our choices had on others.’

The tribute came after 18 months of intense scrutiny in Britain and the US over the phone-hacking scandal that resulted in the closure of his 168-year-old News of the World newspaper in July 2011. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Speaking on The Howard Stern Show last week he explained: ‘This was my issue. We talked about this tape…And she told me there was no tape. If she might have been honest with me I might have tried to hold her down and be like “That was before me” because she is a great girl.’

‘She’s actually one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. But the fact that she lied and told me that there was no tape?’

Kim made the tape while with then-boyfriend Ray J in 2003.

X-Factor fashion face-off: Britney Spears vs. Khloe Kardashian

Khlow Kardashian x-factor finaleBritney looked pretty in a high necked clinging black midi dress which she teamed with gold heels and earrings, while her teen protege kept things casual in black jeans, a black and white shirt, and light brown boots.

Britney and Carly Rose held hands as they joined the judges and two other finalists to discuss the forthcoming two-part final episode which airs in the U.S. on Wednesday and Thursday this week.

And she seemed confident about the teen’s chances, earlier tweeting:

‘Spending the day with the one & only @CarlyRoseMusic. I’m telling y’all… this girl is COMING for the win this week.’

Little black dress: Britney looked happy and relaxed in a clinging black sleeveless midi dress and gold heels Her fellow judge Demi Lovato looked the most relaxed on the carpet – perhaps because she is the one judge not to have any contestants in the final – her last contestant in the young adult group CeCe Frey finished sixth on the show.

Demi looked casual in a brightly colored striped skirt, black tights and black jacket with some oddly applied black eye liner.

However, it was host Khloe Kardashian who was giving everyone a run for their money in the style stakes, arriving in a pair of lace up black knee high boots, leather look pants and a leopard skin jacket.

She joined her co-host Mario Lopez on stage at the press conference, alongside judges Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Spotted: Vampire Diaries actress Kat Graham wearing funky vintage dress as she shops in Los Angeles…

Brave beauty: The Swiss-born actress and singer still managed to show off her taut legs Like it or not, this wild outfit will surely be remembered. Kat skipped out on her usual glam style, instead opting for an eye catching outfit sure to be remembered on the year’s most unique dressed list as she slipped in some last minute holiday shopping in the trendy district of Melrose in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

The Vampire Diaries actress stopped into a few vintage shops on the road while showing off new ombre highlights in her hair. The dress is a far departure from her normal clothing choices, which often show off her svelte dancer’s figure.

The 22-year-old actress wore minimal make-up and nude pink lipstick as she modeled the vintage black and gold striped dress.

The gold-striped dress, looked as though it was probably just a few sizes too big, but she still managed to show off her taut legs in a pair of black strappy leather sandals.

Kat showed signs she may have regretted the outfit choice, changing later in the day to a more tame black and white sequinned outfit that she posted on Instagram. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Kendra Wilkinson: ‘Say no to muffin tops for the Christmas season’…

Showing off fit form and abs

Kendra Wilkinson has revealed her top tips to stay in shape over Christmas. The former Playboy model wants to enjoy the festive season by eating, drinking and being merry but she doesn’t want to put on too much weight.

Kendra intends to limit the amount of calorie laden canapes she eats and has a plan for meal times to avoid overeating.

In a blog post titled Say No To Muffin Tops, she wrote: ‘Between Christmas cookies and cocktail parties, plus all the heavy holiday meals in between, it can be easy to put on a few pounds during the holiday season. Don’t let it happen!’

‘Here’s how to make it to 2013 with a flat belly … Start every day with breakfast and a short workout. Eating breakfast will rev up your metabolism for the day and a short run or a 20-minute yoga session in the morning boosts your energy and keeps your appetite in check for the rest of the day.’

‘Never go to a party hungry. Eat a small meal before attending cocktail parties, dinner parties, or any events where food will be served. Holiday appetizers are usually fried, stuffed with cheese, or full of sugar. Taste what you want but never make a meal of party appetizers.’

Kendra – who has a three-year-old son Hank Jr. with her husband Hank Baskett – also plans to pace herself when she is drinking alcohol by drinking water in between and has urged her fans to do the same. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Top knot: Kim's hair was pushed off her face and tied in a top knot but even that couldn't distract from her famous bottom It’s not even Christmas yet. But it looks like Kim Kardashian has already been getting stuck into the Christmas cookies. The reality star appeared to have packed on a few pounds as she emerged in Studio City in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Kim unwisely tried to hide her curves in a pair of black pants. While they were obviously meant to be baggy the pants clung in all the wrong places.

The yo-yo dieter teamed them with a black top covered in graphic writing, with a scarf flung around her neck. Make-up free Kim obviously wasn’t expecting to be photographed, with her hair tied in a messy top knot.

But she gave the photographer a smile as she passed by on her way to visit a friend. It is the first time the 32-year-old has been seen back in Los Angeles since she wrapped her newest reality show, Kourtney And Kim Take Miami.

The busy businesswoman was based in Florida while she filmed the show, making frequent trips to New York. She has also been jetting around the world promoting her various business interests, including her clothing lines. bbAnd with trips to Italy, Australia, London, and the Gulf, Kim hasn’t had much free time.

Tom Cruise and son Connor travel in style as they jet out of New York in a private helicopter…

I'm ready! 17-year-old Connor Cruise joined his father on the helicopter and has been tweeting about their outingMost people are used to taking commercial flights, but when your dad is a famous movie star, you get to travel in private jets.

And Tom Cruise certainly spoiled his 17-year-old son Connor by taking him on a private helicopter as he continued his promotional tour in the States.

Connor accompanied his famous father as he promoted his latest film Jack Reacher in New York, and joined him on a helipad as they left their hotel on Wednesday.

Tom has been busy promoting his latest action film, which has seen him travel to London, Sweden and most recently, New York.

Dressed for comfort: The Jack Reacher star looked casual in his jeans and shirt attireWith his son by his side, he jetted out of the Big Apple, but made a pit stop in Pittsburgh before continuing his journey to Los Angeles.

Connor took to Twitter to write about his tour with dad, saying: ‘NYC it’s been real… LA bound with a quick stop in Pittsburg.’ 

His new film takes place in Pittsburgh, so it was only appropriate the actor would stop by a special screening in the city.

‘I just really want to thank you all very much because you can’t make a movie unless you have the help of the community. I wish you a very merry Christmas and best of New Year,’he told his fans there, before going back home to Los Angeles. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Michael Strahan on his gap teeth: ‘I Don’t Want To Be Perfect’…

Former NY Giants football player, Michael Strahan seems to be enjoying his new high profile job as the co-host of Live! With Kelly and Michael, however criticism about how his looks fit into the entertainment industry seemed to arise lately.

Although a picture-perfect smile is the norm for his new line of work, according to Michael in his latest interview, he’s just not interested in changing his signature gap-toothed smile.

He told Elle Magazine: ‘I was really close to closing it up. I was at the dentist having him do mock-ups. I thought about it, man. I was in my twenties. I was playing with the Giants.’

‘There’s so much pressure to be perfect. You can fix everything now. For me, I made the conscious effort to say “This is who I am.” I’m not perfect. I don’t want to try to be perfect.’

‘Some people have signature birth marks, moles and other defects but that’s what makes them unique. It’s good to see that he’s confident and doesn’t want to change for anyone else.’

Last week Michael and his fiance Nicole Murphy, whom he engaged in May of 2009 were spotted the ‘Toast To The Holidays’ party looking festive. Wearing a gold and black glitter dress, Nicole looked glamorous as usual as the couple popped champagne in honor of the upcoming holidays.

Nicole, who was previously married to comedian Eddie Murphy, splits her time between Los Angeles where she lives with her five children and New York.

But it wasn’t the boyish buzz cut that garnered attention so much as the new color.The defiant star is letting her natural grey show through, making a refreshing change from the identikit dye jobs of her fellow stars.

The South African actress, who became a first time mother when she adopted son Jackson in May, chopped off her long locks earlier this year. It wasn’t a fashion choice but a requirement to play Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road, the fourth film in the post apocalyptic series.

Departing from her recent chic outfits, the Prometheus actress went for comfort in a boxy blue turtleneck sweater with cropped jeans and open-toed nude colored booties.

Charlize paired the outfit with a large yellow ostrich print purse and oversized sunglasses. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

The super diva and her family will be spending the holiday in the exclusive ski resort of Aspen in Colorado.  There the 42-year-old was seen browsing in a Gucci store on Thursday before paying a friend’s nearby jewelry shop a visit. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Kim Kardashian‘s new bikini photoshoot is…HOTT!

Different style: Kim switches to a slightly chunkier green bikini, making the most of her figureShe’s been focusing on her career and relationship over the last few months. But Kim Kardashian reminded her fans just why they love her as she stripped down to her bikini for a racy new photoshoot in the Miami heat last week.

Getting back to basics, the reality star showed off her famous figure as she posed in a number of skimpy bikinis, in case anyone had forgotten what she was famous for.

She’s in the process of evolving her style since she started dating Kanye West, but Kim is better known for what she looks like without her clothes on, than for her fashion sense.

Clearly wanted to remind the world about her money-making figure, just in case it had slipped everyone’s minds, the 32-year-old did what she does best at the sizzling photoshoot.

Celebrating the festive period in true Kardashian style, the star showed off her perfectly bronzed body as she stripped off.

Her long, dark hair fell poker straight down her back in the shots, as she scraped it back with her perfectly manicured nails. Wearing natural, toned down make-up, which accentuated her flawless complexion, Kim posed in a tan colored string bikini. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

X-Factor Finale: Khloe Kardashian is the host with the most…outfits that is!

Lovely in lace: Khloe made for an arresting sight in her green lace dress which showed off her long legsHer skills as an X Factor host have met a mixed reception, but nobody could accuse Khloe Kardashian of scrimping on the glamour. The reality star managed to fit three different outfits, and as many hairstyles, into Thursday night’s final show.

In a lacy green number, clinging black leather and shimmering sequins, Khloe certainly gave the show an injection of bling. She kicked things off with short, ladylike emerald green number with a large cut-out back.

The dress was lace with sheer long sleeves – simple. To accentuate her waist the wife of basketball player Lamar Odom wore a narrow belt and finished the look off with spike-heeled pointy ankle boots.

Next was a slightly more vampy affair – a skintight black leather long-sleeved mini dress. Despite covering up her cleavage and arms the dress positively clung to her curves. Last up – and it’s a feat in itself Khloe managed to change so quickly three times – was a pink and green sequinned job. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Is Cheryl Cole a DJ now? Singer steps out in leather harem pants and bomber jacket for date night…

New direction: The Geordie beauty completed her look with a pair of silver pointed stilettos and her dark brunette locks tumbling in loose waves around her shoulders She’s been part of a chart-topping girl band, enjoyed a successful solo career and sat on the judging panel of The X Factor. And Cheryl Cole decided to add another string to her bow as she took to the decks to perform a DJ set on Thursday night.

As the 29-year-old singer emerged from London’s The Rose Club in the early hours of the morning, it would initially seem she had just enjoyed another evening out with boyfriend Tre Holloway.

But the Geordie beauty had actually spent the night entertaining the revelers alongside her official DJ, Dubz Wiltshire.

And it would appear she had found a new talent to add to her CV. The Rose Club’s Twitter page said: ‘@CherylCole most definitely set the club on fire !! #HipHopThursdays.’

Cheryl left her usual girlie style at the door, taking on a sporty new look as she was seen making her way home with her dancer beau.

‘The Call My Name’ singer opted for a somewhat bizarre ensemble, featuring baggy leather harem pants which bunched rather unflatteringly around her thighs. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Emma Bunton and fiance Jade Jones only have hands for each other after night out…

As the Spice they called Baby, Emma Bunton was always considered the cute one of the group. And she looked just as adorable holding hands with her biracial fiance Jade Jones after a night out in Camden. The couple had been enjoying their evening at Gilgamesh restaurant on Thursday.

Leading the way Jade, gripped his love’s hand and directed her down the stairs, which may have been more than a show of affection but a necessary precaution to stop Emma falling. The former-Spice Girl was wearing some towering tartan heels that stood out from her all black outfit. But Emma didn’t seem to mind her fiance taking the lead as the grin barely left her face.

Her smile was no doubt inspired by the festive season, as Emma has said that she thinks this will be her best Christmas ever. The 36-year old has said this year’s festivities in the Bunton/Jones household will be very traditional with her sons Beau, five, and Tate, 18 months:

‘I have a feeling this Christmas will be my favorite as my boys are at that perfect age where everything Santa gets is really exciting! I’m very traditional when it comes to Christmas – I like being at home with my entire family, I don’t think I could ever go abroad for Christmas.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Spotted: Revenge star Ashley Madekwe and husband Iddo Goldberg at The Grove…

She’s one of Britain’s hotly-tipped rising stars, who’s already making waves in the US. But actress Ashley Madekwe could have passed for any Californian as she strolled through the Grove with actor husband Iddo Goldberg on Friday, wearing matching leather jackets. Clearly completely in sync with their styles, the couple, who wed this summer, kept each other close as they wandered through the entertainment complex just a few days before Christmas.

She plays a social-climbing party planner in hit US show Revenge, but Ashley looked a far cry from her character as she spent the day with her husband. Looking relaxed and happy, the 30-year-old wore a pair of skin-tight blue jeans and a chic, stripey T-shirt, covered up with the leather biker jacket.

Managing to look casual but stylish, the star in the making wrapped a chunky black scarf around her neck and added a pair of on-trend, red Isabel Marant-style high-tops. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Oh no! Leona Lewis fails to break into the top 200 with her latest single Lovebird!!!

Blow for the X Factor winner: Leona has failed to capture the imagination of the public and radio bosses with her latest offering She was once dubbed The X Factor’s biggest success story. But it seems that superstar Leona Lewis‘ halo might be starting to slip as her new single Lovebird failed to make it into the Top 200 when it was released this week.

The poor sales for the second single taken from Glassheart come after it became her first album not to debut at No 1 when it was released two months ago.

The 27-year-old singer, who became the first British X Factor winner to break America, is still managed by Sony and Simon Cowell, but has become overshadowed by other show successes including One Direction and Little Mix.

‘The single was strong and should have done better but, unfortunately, there was no real marketing force behind it,’ a source told The Daily Mirror.

Crucially, it didn’t capture the imagination of radio bosses and got little airplay. Most people, unless they have the album, have never heard the song,’ they added.

While it is unknown exactly how many copies of the single have been sold, the 200th single on the chart has sold just 600 copies, meaning that Leona’s has sold less.

‘It’s a little embarrassing for the label because they have invested so heavily in Leona. Having said that, the album did really well and the main thing for Leona is that she’s really proud of all the tracks. There are no fillers,’ continued the source. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa talk parenting: ‘Our son is going to know that daddy likes to smoke!’

Rapper Wiz Khalifa and model Amber Rose have a baby boy on the way—and it sounds like they plan to be dope parents. When E! News asked the Rolling Papers rapper if he intends to make any changes to his lifestyle, particularly in the marijuana-use department, Khalifa replied, “Not as far as that goes.”

“I think it’s all about how you’re raised with it,” he added. “Before there was a much more negative outtake on it. You know, pot and what it can do, and the effects of it.”

The 25-year-old father-to-be went on to clarify his thoughts.

“Of course, I’m not going to be smoking right there over the baby, because smoke in general and being high is not good for a kid,” he added. “None of that. But definitely he’s going to know what it is—and he’ll know the difference between being a child and not being able to use it and being an adult and knowing how to use it.”

Now in her third trimester, the model mom-to-be, 29, went on to support her man.

“It’s just like alcohol, basically,” she said. “That’s how I feel about it, you know. When you’re a kid, you know that you’re not supposed to drink alcohol, that it’s for adults and that’s it. She added: “Our son is just going to know that daddy likes to smoke.”

After Amber revealed that she’s planning to have a natural water birth at home, Wiz chimed in with his support, saying: “Whatever she wants to do, I facilitate that.”Visit E! News to continue reading…

Zoe Saldana receives an early Christmas present…’Mugsy’

Christmas has come a few days early for Zoë Saldana. The actress has received a gift in the form of a little white rescue pup that she adopted just days before the holiday.

“Meet Mugsy!!! Rescued her last week and  my best friend named her ha! She’s adorable and super smart,” Saldana Tweeted Thursday, with a photo of the wiry-haired pooch sitting in the passenger’s seat of a car.

Perhaps spending timing with her boyfriend Bradley Cooper’s dog Charlotte is what persuaded the ‘The Words’ star to adopt a furry friend of her own. Saldana, who is the leading lady in Cooper’s life, spent Thanksgiving walking outdoors with the white chow/retriever mix.

“She has to like my dogs,” The Hangover star told PEOPLE in 2009 of what he looks for in a potential girlfriend. “My dogs and I come in a package.”

Wow! Kim Kardashian visits Beverly Hills hair salon THREE times in just two days…

Looking good: Kim's salon visit culminated in a fresh blow outFor Kim Kardashian, one visit to the salon in a week isn’t enough. Just one day after getting her tresses done, the curvaceous reality star had a busy Friday morning, visiting two more hair salons in Beverly Hills on Friday.

The 32-year-old covered up her famous curves with a tan trench coat wrapped loosely over a black mini dress and a black quilted Chanel bag to match.

Kim arrived at the salon with her hair wet and wild and emerged from the salon with her long black hair blown straight.

Wearing high heeled black leather booties, Kim managed to juggle her phone and a large cup as she successfully strode out of the Beverly Hills salon, unlike her trip on Thursday.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s star’s penchant for stilettos caused her to lose her footing as she visited another stylist in West Hollywood just the day before, falling not just once but twice on her outing.

She had a busy morning, heading to another salon within a few hours of taking a trip to the gym — her second in two days as well. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Keeping an eye on her?: The rapper has travelled to Vegas to be by Coco's side following the scandalTheir seemingly unbreakable bond has been rocked by a scandal after photos hit the internet showing Coco cuddling up with another man.

But Ice-T appeared to have forgiven his wife and the pair put on a united front on a Las Vegas outing on Friday.

It seems the rapper may have traveled to the Nevada city to be by his wife’s side – and perhaps keep an eye on her – after she was snapped getting cozy with AP.9 earlier this month.

The trouble in paradise appeared to be behind the pair, however, as they enjoyed a workout followed by a shopping trip. Keeping an eye on her?: The rapper has travelled to Vegas to be by Coco's side following the scandal

The couple looked like they were getting on great as they shared a giggle while pumping iron in the fitness center at the Planet Hollywood hotel.

Curvaceous Coco, whose real name is Nicole Austin, was dressed in a tank top with the word ‘dramatic’ splashed across it and monochrome striped lycra shorts.

Meanwhile Ice-T was wearing a red top and black shorts, and kept to the same color palette when he changed later on, then sporting a red T-shirt, black jeans and a matching leather jacket.

Coco decided to show her wild side to get stuck into some retail therapy with her other half, and wore animal print pants with a black top, studded boots and a leather jacket to coordinate with her husband. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Katherine Heigl returns home from L.A. to Utah with her mother in tow…

Wool fan: Katherine looked cosy in her knitted shirt-sleeved jumperOn Friday 21st December, some people across the world were locked away at home, anticipating a terrible natural disaster or alien invasion.

But not Katherine Heigl and her mum Nancy, they were catching a plane, seemingly unphased by Doomsday prophecies and concerns about an abrupt end to humanity’s tenure on Earth.

The blonde pair were spotted at LAX, where it is likely that they were catching a flight to Utah where Katherine now lives with her husband and two children. In the episode, screened the next night, she gave the silver haired host a new collar for his cat, while he gave her a pooper-scooper with a picture of his face on. While it may seem like an unusual present to give for Christmas, it is one Katherine will find plenty of use for.

She owns seven dogs, and is a a vocal animal rights supporter and campaigner.

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez jet off to Paris for Christmas…

She recently lost a legal battle to move to France permanently with her daughter Nahla. And on Saturday morning a wistful looking Halle Berry landed in Paris for Christmas with her Gallic fiance Olivier Martinez – but without her 5-year-old.

While the couple were travelling alone, Halle was ostentatiously carrying a child’s pink pig backpack, seemingly indicating that she would be joined by her daughter later in the holiday. Holding hands tightly, the couple are probably hoping for a more peaceful Christmas holiday than their Thanksgiving.

As the pair walked through the arrivals terminal at the Charles De Gaulle airport Olivier, 42, pumped the air victoriously perhaps indicating that he was happy to finally be back on home turf after a difficult few months. Wearing a padded black jacket, skinny black jeans and a pair of buckles boots the Oscar winning actress did manage a smile for her love of two years.

Ravishing in red: The former model looked red hot in her string bikini, which she accessorised with a small body chain across her toned torsoShe was only 17 when she married Russell Simmons on St. Barts. And 14 years later, Kimora Lee Simmons returned to the picturesque Caribbean island with her three children in tow for a very sandy Christmas vacation.

The 37-year-old could not hide her delight, or her ample bosom, as she frolicked on the beach Saturday with her daughters Ming and Aoki from her marriage to the hip-hop magnate.

The former model looked red hot in her string bikini, which she accessorized with a small body chain across her toned torso.

Ming, who turns 13 next month, was all smiles in her black-striped one-piece, while her 10-year-old sister wore a blue patterned bathing suit with cut-outs on each side.

As soon as the temperature dropped, Aoki donned a pair of jean shorts and an ultra-cute Hello Kitty tank top. Not seen on the beach this week was Kimora’s three-year-old son Kenzo from her relationship with actor Djimon Hounsou, whom she recently split with after five years together.

But the six-foot stunner happily shared several candid snaps from her family holiday getaway, including a shot of little Kenzo seated at a restaurant table. The Simmons-Hounsou clan took a posh private jet earlier this week to the tropical island, despite decorating the family Christmas tree earlier in the month. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

The Obama‘s head to Hawaii for a tropical Christmas…

At the end of a busy day during which he attended a funeral, nominated his new Secretary of State and stared over the ‘fiscal cliff’ President Obama packed his family off to Hawaii for Christmas. The president, Michelle, Malia and Sasha departed for his native state on Friday evening, shortly after he had delivered a statement on extended the last Bush administration’s tax cuts.

Obama had told reporters ‘see you next week’ at the end of his appearance in the briefing room, but the White House did not specify when the president would return to Washington. The Obama family have traditionally spent their Christmas holidays in Honolulu.

Earlier in the day President Obama had urged lawmakers to reach agreement on averting tax hikes on the middle class, saying he was ready and willing to do what it takes to get a deal by January 1st.

Obama said he had spoken with Republican House Speaker John Boehner and met with Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid about the fiscal cliff. The president said he was an optimist and believed a deal could be hammered out. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Obama cuts number of inaugural balls down from 10 to TWO as a way to help with tough economy…

Dancing night: Michelle and Barack Obama stopped by all 10 of the inaugural balls that were held in 2009, but they will have far fewer dancefloors to hit this time aroundWith his nation under financial strain, President Barack Obama decided his inaugural festivities to only two balls, making it the lowest number of parties in 60 years.

He decided to cut down on the pomp and circumstance from his initial inauguration, where there were 10 balls, to January’s two balls and a concert honoring military families.

Planners say the austerity in festivities is a reflection of tough economic times and an effort to minimize the burden on law enforcement, other security personnel and Washington residents. Both balls are being planned at the Washington Convention Center on Monday, January 21, the evening of Obama’s public inauguration at the Capitol on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

Under the Constitution, the president’s second term begins January 20 at noon, but he’ll be sworn in privately at the White House – with limited media coverage – since inaugural celebrations traditionally aren’t held on Sundays.
One party will be the Commander In Chief’s Ball, a tradition started by President George W. Bush for members of the Armed Forces.Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Movie Preview: Tyler’s Perry’s Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor starring Kim Kardashian

The irony wasn’t lost on fans when Kim Kardashian last year signed on to appear in Tyler Perry’s new film Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor which stars the likes of  Robbie Jones, Vanessa Williams, Brandy Norwood, Eric White and other Hollywood actors.

Hot on the heels of ending one of Hollywood’s shortest marriages, the reality TV queen plays social-climber Ava, a preened business woman who loves figure-hugging dresses and lambastes her co-workers for not meeting her standards of style and beauty. A newly-released trailer for the comedy proves the role isn’t much of a stretch for the star.

Her voice narrates the top of the two-and-a-half minute clip. The scene opens from a sweeping cityscape to the sprawling offices where Kim’s character rips into marriage counselor Judith, played by Jurnee Smollett.

‘We have a billion dollars walking in and out of these offices looking for love. You have a standard to uphold. That blouse,’ she miffs. ‘It’s telling it all.’

Not to be undone by her image-obsessed colleague, Judith questions Ava’s cotton candy pink dress – not unlike the ones Kim is so often seen pouring herself into on her day-to-day outings.

‘What’s wrong with my dress?’ she squeaks, eyes glazed, head tilted in confusion.

‘Can you breathe?’ he adversary asks.

Kim’s character narrates the arrival of ‘the largest social media investor since Zuckerberg,’ in reference to billionaire Facebook co-founder Mark. Robbie Jones stars as Harvey, who seduces Judith, an Ivy League educated relationship expert, into considering leaving her husband to be with him. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Santa Claus is coming to Capitol Hill! Obamas turn on National Christmas Tree lights…

LitPresident Obama and his family have flipped the switch for the 90th annual lighting of the National Christmas Tree, marking the holiday season in the nation’s capital.

President Obama was joined by his daughters, Sasha and Malia, and wife Michelle. All were bundled to shield themselves from the cold December night.

Also helping in the festive ceremony was actor and singer Neil Patrick Harris, who hosted the tree-lighting ceremony.

Merry Christmas, everybody!’ the president began. He was wearing a black wool overcoat and a maroon scarf tucked loosely in his jacket.

He was then interrupted by Harris, who said that it was wonderful to see Mr Obama’s daughters out and about.

‘It’s wonderful to see you, Mr President,’ the ‘How I Met Your Mother’ star added.

The President feigned confusion. ‘Is it time?’ he asked.

‘I hope everybody’s ready,’ he said. ‘We gotta do the countdown.’

The crowd then counted down from five, before the first lady and her daughters switched on the blue spruce’s magnificent lights. Performers included singers Kenneth ‘Babyface’ Edmonds, Ledisi, Jason Mraz, James Taylor and the band The Fray.

This year’s giant blue spruce is new and was transplanted in October on the Ellipse, a park that lies between the White House and the National Mall.
The previous tree died from transplant shock after just a year. Before that, a tree that stood for more than 30 years was destroyed by winds in February. 2011. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Fiscal Cliff: Obama: “Middle-class tax hike would be like getting a lump of coal for Christmas!”

Barack Obama continues to pile pressure on Congress to extend tax cuts for the middle class, saying a rates hike would be like getting a ‘lump of coal’ for Christmas.

In the first of a series of campaign-style speeches designed to sell his solution for the ‘fiscal cliff’, the President argued that Republicans should extend existing Bush-era tax rates for households earning $250,000 or less, while allowing increases to kick in for the wealthy.

However, Republican leader John Boehner described the state of negotiations as a ‘stalemate’ and criticized Obama for not making a serious offer on a deal. The President was touring a toy factory in the Philadelphia suburbs when he said the GOP and Democrats alike needed to ‘get out of our comfort zones’ to forge an agreement.

He urged the public to pressure their local members of Congress to pass the middle-class tax cut extension as quickly as possible. Pointing out that every American family will face a tax hike on January 1 if no deal is reached.

Obama said: ‘I’m assuming that doesn’t sound too good to you. That’s sort of like the lump of coal you get for Christmas. That’s a Scrooge Christmas.’ He insisted he was ready to sign a deal straightaway, joking, ‘There are no shortage of pens in the White House and I carry one around for an emergency, just in case.’

The President was clearly in a comic mood as he quipped that he was ‘keeping my own naughty and nice list’ to determine which members of Congress would get sets of K’nex, the toy which is made at the factory in Hatfield where he was speaking. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Republicans make their fiscal cliff’ counteroffer!

John BoehnerThe House Republicans have responded to the president’s offer with essentially the “grand bargain” proposed in the summer of 2011. (This is only fitting since the president essentially gave Democrats his past budget proposal.)

House Speaker John Boehner said in a statement:

In a letter sent to President Obama today, House Republican leaders made a new offer to avert the fiscal cliff centered around a middle ground approach first presented to Congress last year by President Clinton‘s former White House chief of staff, Erskine Bowles.

The Bowles plan, presented in 2011 to the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, is consistent with the framework House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) proposed the day after the election: a balanced approach of significant spending cuts and new revenues from tax reform with fewer loopholes and lower tax rates.

This is another attempt to jumpstart substantive, good faith negotiations toward a bipartisan solution that can be enacted soon, a stark contrast to the unserious proposal the White House put forward last week. Visit the Washington Post to continue reading…

The golden couple: Barack and Michelle attend star-studded Kennedy Center awards…

The president and first lady were in fine form during Sunday night’s Kennedy Center Honors, laughing and holding hands at the event, which recognize the nation’s most culturally influential artists, performers, actors, and musicians.

Wearing a stunning gold lamé dress embellished at the neckline, the first lady dazzled as she entered the East Room of the White House with her husband, who was wearing a smartly-tailored tuxedo and an American flag on his lapel.

Mr Obama honored seven of the country’s most influential artists, including Dustin Hoffman, Chicago blues man Buddy Guy, late night host David Letterman, ballerina Natalia Markarova, and surviving members of rock band Led Zeppelin.

The festivities later transitioned to the Kennedy Center, where fellow performers put on a show which will be broadcast later this month. Stars from New York, Hollywood and the music world gathered Sunday in Washington to salute the honorees who were tonight receiving the nation’s highest award for artistically influential Americans.

‘Tonight, we continue a tradition here at the White House by honoring some extraordinary people who have no business being on the same stage together,’ the president began, joking to the recipients.

He hailed the drive and vision of the honorees, noting that many, like blues musician Buddy Guy, grew up in conditions that didn’t foster creativity. Guy, for instance, was born into a family of Louisiana sharecroppers with no electricity or running water.

He went on to pioneer the use of distortion and feedback with his electric guitar. ‘(Their) passion took each of them from humble beginnings to the pinnacle of their profession,’ Mr Obama said, according to The Hill. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Obamacare saves consumers $1.5 billion…

President Barack Obama (R) signs the Affordable Health Care for America Act as Marcelas Owens looks on during a ceremony with fellow Democrats in the East Room of the White House March 23, 2010 in Washington, DC. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)“Obamacare,” President Barack Obama’s controversial health care reform law, has already saved consumers over $1 billion according to a new study from the Commonwealth Fund.

Although several major parts of the legislation have not even taken effect yet, some of the new rules regarding insurance companies have already had a major impact.

For instance, health insurance companies selling plans to groups of at least 50 people must spend 85 percent of premiums on medical care. Companies that fall short of that mark under the medical loss ratio rule have to refund the difference to their customers.

“The medical loss ratio requirements are intended to give insurers an incentive to be more efficient and use most of their premium dollars for patient care,” Sara Collins, the vice president for affordable health insurance at the New York-based Commonwealth Fund, said in a news release.

“This report is encouraging, as it demonstrates that these new rules are improving value for people buying health insurance.” According to the study, insurance companies doled out $1.1 billion in rebates, and cut administrative costs and profit by $350 million because of the new rules.

Hillary ‘DOESN’T want Susan Rice to take over as Secretary of State’ because she is ‘not friendly enough’…

Hillary ClintonIf Susan Rice is nominated to be the next Secretary of State, she could face fierce opposition from Republicans in Congress.

But now it has emerged that she could also lack support closer to home, as Hillary Clinton has said she would prefer John Kerry to succeed her as America’s top diplomat.

The ambassador to the UN is considered the front runner for the high-powered job, despite coming under fire from the GOP for her role in the government’s response to the Benghazi attack.

Susan RiceHowever, Clinton is apparently not keen for her to take over, according to a report in the Chicago Sun-Times, and instead supports Kerry, chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

‘Hillary is not close to Rice, who is tough but is not the friendliest person,’ a White House source told the newspaper.

‘And Hillary’s brief comment recently that Rice had done “a great job” was considered underwhelming and tepid.’

Earlier this week, the outgoing Secretary of State claimed to be a fan of Rice, saying: ‘Susan Rice has done a great job as our ambassador to the United Nations.

‘Of course, this decision about my successor is up to the President, but I am very happy he has the opportunity with a second term to make a decision.’

Rice, 48, got her start in politics from Hillary’s husband Bill, working on his 1992 presidential campaign before being appointed to the National Security Council. She then served as Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs from 1997 to 2001.

Obama is widely believed to favor her as Hillary’s successor – partly because appointing Kerry could lead to a tough battle for the Democrats to hold on to his Massachusetts Senate seat. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Sarah Palin: “Susan Rice attacks aren’t racist or sexist !”

Sarah Palin Susan RiceFormer Alaska Governor Sarah Palin (R) said the criticism of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice over the September 11 attack in Benghazi, Libya has nothing to do with racism or sexism.

“What the heck does this have to do with gender, or skin color, or anything else? This has to do with competency, and Susan Rice’s handling of Libya has been part and parcel of the Obama Administration’s handling of Libya, which has been appalling,” Palin said Friday on “On the Record” with Greta Van Susteren.

“It’s been atrocious, and it’s really indicative of a lack of competency and truthfulness, and certainly transparency, in the entire Obama Administration. It has nothing to do with her gender.”

Rice, considered to be a top candidate to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, has battled critics since the Benghazi attacks, especially Republican Senators John McCain (Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and Kelly Ayotte (N.H.) After meeting with Rice about the attack, Graham said he was even “more disturbed” about Rice’s explanation of the incident. Visit Huffington Post to continue reading…

Susan Rice Keystone XL attacks put White House in a bind…

Susan Rice KeystoneWhen Susan Rice‘s potential nomination to the post of secretary of state hit another snag this past week, the White House found itself in a quandary.

On Wednesday, a publication affiliated with the Natural Resources Defense Council dug into the ambassador to the United Nations’ financial disclosures, and discovered that she and her husband were heavily invested in several oil companies in western Canada including one, Transcanada, that currently has a project under review at the State Department.

As secretary of state, Rice would have to oversee the review of that project, the Keystone XL pipeline, which has dragged on for several controversial and tortured years.

It would be an obvious conflict of interest, and were she to be confirmed as secretary of state, Rice would almost certainly have to divest from her shares in Transcanada. The ties could give some senators pause over whether to confirm her for the post.

But Rice is not yet the nominee, and as ambassador to the U.N., her investments were not deemed a conflict of interest by ethics lawyers. (Earlier investments were found to be conflicts, and in 2008, as she was being considered for a post in the Obama administration, she divested from Boeing and GE.).

Obama wants Debbie Wasserman Schultz to stay on as DNC chair!

Debbie WassermanPresident Obama will ask the Democratic National Committee to reappoint Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) as chairwoman, according to a senior Democratic official.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s decision to stay in her post effectively froze Democratic leadership, giving Wasserman Schultz and other would-be leaders from a younger generation no chance to move up.

There were reportedly tensions between the Obama campaign and Wasserman Schultz over messaging during the campaign. But a senior Democratic official told Politico that the congresswoman did an “outstanding job,” helping the party keep the presidency and the Senate while picking up seats in the House.

Poll: Michelle Obama favored for Illinois Senate seat…

The first lady talked about the importance of afterschool and out of school arts and humanities education and presented awards recognizing programs across the country that benefit underserved youth. (Photo by Mark Wilson/Getty Images)Will Michelle Obama follow former first lady Hillary Clinton’s footsteps and run for Senate? Although Mrs. Obama has never indicated any interest in a political career, a new survey from the left-leaning Public Policy Polling firm suggests that Illinois voters would warm up to the idea.

Their latest poll has the current first lady leading first-term Republican senator Mark Kirk in a hypothetical match-up by a substantial 51 to 40 percent margin.

Kirk’s approval rating is currently only 34 percent, while Michelle Obama enjoys a 60 percent approval number. And President Obama also remains popular in his home state; PPP finds that he has 57 percent approval there.

Kirk has been on an extended leave of absence from the Senate after suffering a major stroke. He is expected to return to legislating this coming January.

Meanwhile, Michelle Obama increased political speculation about her future after her incredibly well-received speech at this year’s Democratic National Convention.

“I’d love to see her get more into politics because it would be a breath of fresh air in D.C.,” South Carolina Democratic Rep. James Clyburn told Newsweek.

“She’s honest and straightforward, which is not what you see in Washington much. She is exactly what we need around here,” he added. Visit theGrio to continue reading…

Both Romney and Obama ran $1 billion campaigns…

President Obama's campaignThe Obama campaign got a lot of things right in the 2012 election. One thing they didn’t get right: that it wouldn’t be a billion-dollar campaign. The Obama and Romney campaigns and allied committees both cracked $1 billion in reports filed late Thursday with the Federal Election Commission, making 2012 the most expensive presidential race on record.

In the end, President Obama had slightly more than $1.1 billion spent on him by his campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the top super PAC devoted to his reelection, Priorities USA Action.

Mitt Romney, meanwhile, had right between $1 billion and $1.1 billion spent on him by his campaign, the Republican National Committee and his super PAC, Restore Our Future.

While the financial battle was very even overall, each candidate had his moments when he was more flush with cash than others, and the sources of that money were very different.

Romney obviously spent lots of money on the primary campaign and ran out of primary funds before September, being forced to take out a $20 million loan and struggling to compete with Obama’s summer ad spending. He also got a lot more help from his super PAC and the RNC than Obama did from his super PAC and the DNC. Visit the Washington Post to continue reading…

Orly Taitz loses Obama college records suit in California court!

Orly TaitzOrly Taitz, the California dentist and attorney who has gained notoriety for her relentless efforts to prove that President Obama is inelegible for office, suffered another blow last week when an Orange County judge rejected her attempt to retrieve Obama’s college records.

As first reported by the school’s student paper, the Occidental Weekly, Taitz had filed a legal motion to compel Occidental College to release transcripts and other records from when Obama was an undergraduate there in the late ’70s and early ’80s, alleging that Obama was not born in the United States and is currently using a fake social security number.

The private college’s counsel, Carl Botterud, pointing to privacy concerns, deemed Taitz’s case “frivolous” and “without merit.” The self-proclaimed “queen of the birthers” then argued that the matter of Obama’s alleged foreign birth was important enough to overrule privacy laws.

“Your opposition will constitute Obstruction of Justice, Aiding and Abetting in the elections fraud in forgery and treason in allowing a foreign citizen to usurp the U.S. Presidency with an aid of forged IDs and usurp the civil rights of the U.S. citizens,” Taitz wrote in an email to Botterud ahead of their court date.

“At any rate your opposition and your attempt of intimidation and your allegiance or lack of allegiance to the United States of America is duly noted. Just make sure not to forget to bring with you Mr. Obama’s application, registration, and financial aid application.”

Orange County Superior Court Judge Charles Margines rejected Taitz’ argument, citing procedural errors and questioning the quality of her evidence. Visit Huffington Post to continue reading…

Kid Rock to Obama: ‘No hard feelings’

(Photo by Scott Legato/Getty Images)Rocker-rapper Kid Rock told President Obama this weekend there are “no hard feelings” over his re-election when the two crossed paths at the Kennedy Center Honors on Sunday.

A 2008 Obama campaign supporter, Kid Rock played at President Obama’s inauguration. But after presidential candidate Mitt Romney made a visit to his home in Michigan, the “Cowboy” singer decided to endorse Romney for president in this year’s election.

Kid Rock told CNN at the Kennedy Center Honors: “it always stinks to lose…but if you don’t stand for something you stand for nothing.” Via theGrio

Michelle Kwan, bureaucrat: Skating champ now has State Department job…

Michelle Kwan White HouseNeed proof that Michelle Kwan is truly a Washingtonian now? The figure skating legend has become a bureaucrat. About a year and a half after moving to D.C., the former Olympian is launched on a career track, with a new job this fall at the State Department. Official title: Senior adviser for public diplomacy and public affairs.

“People say it’s a 180 for me,” Kwan told us. “But I traveled the world representing the U.S. for years.”

It’s a role she’s been transitioning into. While winding down her career as the nation’s most decorated figure skater, Kwan pursued a graduate degree at Tufts’ Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.

In 2007, the State Department tapped her starpower by naming her a public-diplomacy envoy; other unpaid but high-profile roles followed with State’s council to promote women’s sports worldwide and the White House advisory panel on fitness.

We caught up with Kwan, 32, after she spoke during a Washington Post Live conference on women and leadership Wednesday.

Does she see herself with State for the long haul?

“You never know in politics, she said, but I’m very goal-oriented. I do see myself doing something in public service. Not foreign service work, though. “I like living in the United States too much,” she said.

Kwan shared with her seminar audience one little career disappointment: She was turned down for a White House fellowship.

“But I got the fellow,” she joked — fiancé Clay Pell, who beat her out for the prestigious program and now works there. No date set yet, but she said they’ll probably wed in Rhode Island — where he’s from, and where they got engaged — sometime next year. Via the Washington Post.

African American couple ‘ATTACKED in pizzeria by employees who were angry about Obama‘s re-election’…

A couple’s trip to a New York pizza place last week that erupted into racially-charged hate crime has resulted in a planned protest, a potential lawsuit and criminal charges.

According to reports, Willie and Alfie Marshall were visiting Paesano II Pizza in Greenlawn, New York last Saturday when a complaint about the food escalated into an all out brawl with blood spilled, and racial slurs hurled along with salt and pepper shakers.

Willie Marshall said it was the most shocking thing of his life.‘He stomped me in my face and then he made a racial slur – I don’t want to say it on the air, I don’t want to do that,’ Mr Marshall said, adding that a worker shouted, ‘This is for Obama.’

According to CBS, Mr Marshall and his wife Alfie Marshall had complained about a problem with their two slices of pizza. The Marshalls said the employees refused to correct the problem or give them a refund, and instead and began cursing and screaming racial slurs.

The Marshalls then claim as they turned to leave, the employees, brothers Frank and Michael Meringolo, made a comment and threw salt and peppers shakers at Ms Marshall.

Mr. Marshall also says he was hit in the altercation and that the two men used ‘ugly language,’ CBS 2′s Tony Aiello reported. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Kim Kardashian starts a riot! Police officers in Bahrain fire tear gas at protestors angry over reality TV star’s presence in Gulf kingdom…

She is certainly not everybody’s cup of tea but never before has Kim Kardashian’s presence started a riot. Just hours after the reality TV star gushed about her impressions of Bahrain, riot police were forced to fire tear gas at an angry crowd.

More than 50 hardline Islamic protesters had gathered to denounce the 31-year-old’s presence in the Gulf kingdom. The clashes took place just before Miss Kardashian opened the Bahrain branch of her Millions of Milkshakes shop.

Protesters were seen chanting ‘God is Great’ near the shopping complex in Riffa, about 12 miles south of the capital Manama. The demonstrators were cleared before Miss Kardashian appeared late today.

Earlier, she posted glowing remarks about Bahrain on her Twitter account, calling it ‘the prettiest place on earth.’

It was re-Tweeted by Bahrain’s foreign minister. Miss Kardashian was in Kuwait earlier this week to open another branch of the shop. The reality star was seen slurping away on a calorie-laden milkshake at the Millions Of Milkshakes store opening at the Avenues Mall in Kuwait City on Thursday – as her legal problems raged on back home in Los Angeles.

Kansas City football star Jovan Belcher, 25, shoots his girlfriend dead before killing himself in front of coaches at Chiefs stadium…

Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, 25, fatally shot his girlfriend early Saturday morning, then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and committed suicide in front of his coach and general manager after first thanking them for everything they had done for him, police said.

Belcher’s girlfriend has been identified as 22-year-old Kasandra Perkins. The couple lived together and three months ago had a baby together on September 11. Authorities did not immediately release a possible motive for the murder-suicide, which stunned the team and came one day before a home game against the Carolina Panthers.

The NFL said the game would go on as scheduled. Judging from pictures posted on Kasandra’s Facebook page, the young couple had appeared to be happy and in love following the birth of their first child.

‘Jovan and Kasandra always seemed to be in love. In fact, when Kasandra got pregnant, she and Jovan were ecstatic. Ever since the baby was born in September, the two couldn’t have seemed happier together,’ a member of the Perkin’s family told TMZ.

Belcher was a 25-year-old native of West Babylon, N.Y., on Long Island, played college ball at Maine. He had played all four of his NFL seasons for the Chiefs and played in every game each year, including the 11 so far this season.

Stunning: Salma Hayek walks the red carpet at Mexican film festival…

Pretty in pink: The Mexican actress manages to pull off a sultry but elegant look in the dusky pink gown

Pretty in pink: The Mexican actress manages to pull off a sultry but elegant look in the dusky pink gown

She’s considered to be one of the most attractive women in the world. And actress Salma Hayek certainly lived up to the reputation as she walked the red carpet at the Acapulco International Film Festival on Friday.

Proving that you can be both sexy and sophisticated at the same time, the Mexican actress ensured that all eyes were on her in an eye-popping, floor-length gown.

The 46-year-old star, who has always proved that you don’t need to be a size 0 to make it in Hollywood, clearly decided that she wanted to make an impact for the closing ceremony in her home country.

Embracing her usual sultry style, the actress also managed to look elegant in the dusky pink dress, which had delicate floral embellishment around the waist.

With a ruffled lower half, the dress did wonders for Salma’s curvaceous figure, drawing attention away from her hips, and accentuating her prominent bust.

The tight, strapless neckline of the dress is usually a no-go for women who are top heavy, but Salma seemed to buck the trend, making the look work for her.

The actress held a small, gold clutch bag for as she posed for photographs and added a splash of deep red lipstick to compliment the embellishment on her dress. She wore her dark hair in loose, natural waves, which fell over her shoulder and had her fringe swept to one side, adding to her girlie look.

Reunited and it feels so good: Gabriel Aubry is reunited with daughter Nahla…

Truce? The French-Canadian model has reportedly reached an agreement in court with Berry and MartinezGabriel Aubry enjoyed a happy reunion with daughter Nahla on Friday evening after calling a truce with her mother Halle Berry in court on Thursday.

It was the first time the father-daughter duo were able to spend quality time together since the 36-year-old model’s arrest after a Thanksgiving altercation between the French-Canadian model and Berry’s fiancé Olivier Martinez.

According to TMZ, the 46-year-old Oscar-winner decided to drop the temporary restraining order which prevented Aubry from contacting Berry, Martinez, or his four-year-old girl.

And X17online reported that it was a nanny – not Berry – who picked up Nahla from school and delivered her to the bruised Aubry.

The model covered his purple shiner with a pair of sunglasses and attempted to go incognito in a black jacket over a grey hoodie, baseball hat and jeans.

Berry. Despite his numerous injuries from last week’s brawl, the blond stud seemed thrilled to take his girly girl’s hand and happily lead her through the parking lot.

The little girl – dressed in striped tights and a classic trenchcoat – was equally thrilled, smiling and skipping by her doting dad’s side as if she hadn’t a care in the world. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Ashley Roberts: “‘Only Nicole Scherzinger was allowed to talk!”

Nicole Scherzinger was always the front woman of The Pussycat Dolls, garnering the lead vocals and the most press attention. However, Ashley Roberts admitted that during her time with the girl group, all the band members were essentially were banned from speaking, with only Nicole allowed to speak on their behalf.

After reaching the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! final on Thursday, David Haye congratulated Ashley for making such an impression on viewers for a non-UK star. The American singer/dancer admitted she was surprised herself because she didn’t think she was known as an individual during her five years in the group.

She said in Thursday’s episode: ‘Even in the group I wasn’t allowed to talk, we were told to be quiet. Only Nicole was allowed to talk, we would occasionally pitch in.’

A shocked Charlie Brooks responded: ‘Only Nicole was allowed to talk? Why did they say that then? Did that not drive you nuts?’

Ashley replied: ‘Are you serious? Why do you think the band broke up? U2 are still together and they split everything down the middle.’

When David asked if money was divided equally between the Pussycat Dolls, Ashley answered: ‘No.’

The Pussycat Dolls – a pop version of a successful burlesque act of the same name – launched onto the music scene in 2005 with their debut single Don’t Cha’ which was a worldwide hit.

Originally created as a six piece, the oldest band member Carmit Bachar quit in March 2008 to focus on her solo career. However, by early 2009 the group had parted ways after their last few singles were billed ‘The Pussycat Dolls featuring Nicole Scherzinger’. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Ryan Gosling turns into delivery guy! He’s more than a pretty face…

He’s one of Hollywood’s most lusted after leading men. But Ryan Gosling proved that he was more than just a pair of cheekbones as he helped a delivery man shift some heavy boxes outside his home on Friday.

Instead of acting like a pampered Hollywood star and letting the boxes come to him, the Drive actor got stuck in and rushed out to help bring them in himself. It appeared that the star had ordered a set of mammoth, floor-standing speakers, decking out his Californian home with the newest technology.

The 32-year-old actor might be getting serious with girlfriend Eva Mendes but the pair are obviously not thinking of moving in together just yet, as Ryan seemed more concerned about making additions to his own house.

Having a break from filming the new Terence Malick film, the star is obviously making some time to get some things down around the house, in between spending time with his A-lister girlfriend.

Looking as on-trend and stylish as ever, Ryan popped out of his house in a pair of dark blue jeans and a dark red, patterned jumper. Keeping up his hipster image, the Crazy, Stupid, Love actor added a pair of dirty, beaten up boots and, in an attempt to go incognito, wore a camouflage print baseball cap.

She’s referred to adopted son Louis Bardo as her ‘main focus’ and ‘the only man’ in her life. And Sandra Bullock was spotted picking up her little ray of sunshine from school in Studio City on a gloomy, drizzly Friday.

The Oscar-winning actress, 48, was appropriately attired for the wet 60-degree weather in a raincoat over a frayed hooded top, black leggings, and matching rubber rain-boots.

With her trademark dark hair loose over her shoulders and a pair of aviator sunglasses covering her face, the make-up free star sweetly held the two-year-old who was sporting an edgy new mohawk.

The serious-looking toddler, who turns three in January, looked cheerful in his bright yellow jumper, blue jeans, and white sneakers.

Dr. Dre’s headphone empire puts him at top of highest paid musicians in 2012!

Move over Bono, Bon Jovi, Jay-Z, and several other celebrities that one might expect to be named the highest paid musician this year. Rockstar-status hip-hop producer Dr. Dre landed the number one spot on Forbes‘ 2012 list of top earners in the music business.

The other four big earners were Roger Waters of Pink Floyd, Elton John, U2 and British boy band Take That. MailOnline’s personal favorite, Justin Beiber, 18, just made into the top ten, tying with Toby Keith.

Dre, 47, a former member of the controversial rap group NWA and Eminem’s primary mentor, came in first this year with earnings of $110 million (£68.7 million), largely due to the success of his luxury headphone line, ‘Beats By Dr. Dre.’

The Compton California native, born Andre Romelle Young, and Interscope Geffen A&M Records Chairman Jimmy Iovine started the company Beats Electronics in 2006 and debuted the highly profitable headphone line in 2008. The company is headquartered in Santa Monica, California.

Hi-fi wire company Monster was granted exclusive rights under a 5-year contract to manufacture and develop the Dre-branded headphones. ‘The brands are so aligned, Dre and Beats, it’s just who he is,’ Kevin Liles, former president of Def Jam Recordings, told Forbes.

Dre co-founded the record label Death Row Records in 1991 with Marion ‘Suge’ Knight Jr. and then left Death Row in 1996 to establish his own label, Aftermath Entertainment. He signed Eminem two years later. Dre has released two solo albums throughout his music career and has produced beats for dozens of artists, including Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Toni Braxton, Kendrick Lamar and Rakim.

Race row erupts over columnist who said African American NFL star Colin Kaepernick shouldn’t be a quarterback because he has TATTOOS and ‘looks like he just got paroled’…

Inked Quarterback: San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has made two starts this NFL season and is highly rated by football pundits

Inked Quarterback: San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has made two starts this NFL season and is highly rated by football pundits

A white sports columnist is facing outrage after he compared the tattooed quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers to the residents of San Quentin state prison.

Sporting News writer David Whitley has been labeled a racist by some for his sweeping generalizations after he penned an article that bemoaned the amount of tattoos that 25-year-old Colin Kaepernick had on his body.

Claiming that the position of quarterback is hallowed and Kaepernick’s body art brings it down in tone, Whitley said that because of his tattoos, the 49ers player can never be a legitimate hero.

But he later defended himself against accusations of racism, saying: “If they were old enough to read, my two adopted African-American daughters would certainly be disappointed to find out I’m a racist.” 

“It didn’t occur to me that admitting I’m not a fan of body art would be admitting I don’t like African-Americans.”

The furious response overwhelmed Whitley, who had to fend off accusations of racial profiling, prompting his editor-in-chief to take the unusual step of writing a defense of the opinion piece in which he admitted Whitley could have finessed certain points.

Whitley, who is the father of two adopted African-American daughters, was even criticized by Kaepernick’s parents – who revealed that his tattoos are in fact verses from the Bible. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Cheryl Cole shows just a hint of her flat stomach in crossover dress as she attends intimate book signing…

She may have flown in from Los Angeles just hours earlier after a whirlwind trip Stateside, but there was no sign of jetlag on a glowing Cheryl Cole’s face on Saturday. The singer, 29, was dressed in her best as she met fans at an intimate book signing for her autobiography My Story at a central London hotel.

The Girls Aloud star showed off a hint of her flat stomach in an unusual dress with nude crossover wrap top and ruched orange skirt. The Geordie star teamed her look with a pair of spiked nude heels and dangling earrings, with her hair swept back into a high ponytail.

Only a select group of fans and just one photographer were in attendance for the Waterstone’s signing event at the Corinthia Hotel – which is where the X Factor contestants are staying. The lucky fans who got the chance to meet Cheryl at the exclusive two-hour event had bought limited £20 tickets, which includes a copy of the book.

The signing meant Cheryl was back to her solo artist persona after spending the past few weeks reunited with her Girls Aloud bandmates. Unfortunately, the five-piece’s comeback track Something New was pipped to the No.1 spot in the UK singles chart by Olly Murs.

Following heavy promotion of the single on Children In Need, Strictly Come Dancing and the Royal Variety Show, Cheryl has spent the past few days in Los Angeles. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Brad Pitt: “The wedding is going to be all about the family!”

He recently revealed that he would be tying the knot soon after receiving plenty of pressure from his children. And it seems like when Brad Pitt finally does wed Angelina Jolie it will be a day all about the little cherubs.

The parent of adopted and biological kids – Maddox, 11, Pax, eight, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, six, and twins Knox and Vivienne, four – wants the ceremony to be one where the little ones get as much attention as the beautiful bride.

Following an interview with the actor, a writer at People magazine revealed about the forthcoming nuptials: ‘One thing for sure, he says it’s going to be all about family: a simple affair with Angie and the kids.’

He was married to actress Jennifer Aniston for five years before finding love with Angelina on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2005. His partner had been hitched to Johnny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton before that so it’s no surprise that saying vows is more about keeping their family happy.

Speaking at the premiere of Killing Me Softly in New York on recently he told People: ‘The time is nigh. It’s soon. I got a good feeling about it.’ He added: ‘I am getting more pressure from my kids, and it is something I want to do within their lifetime, but I also feel like the time has come.’

Although the couple have been through so much together, star Pitt, 47, said their wedding would still be meaningful after raising their children. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

X-Factor UK fashion faceoff: Nicole Scherzinger stuns in metallic Terminator glove over Tulisa Contostavlos

She usually dresses impeccably for her appearances on the X Factor. But Nicole Scherzinger made a questionable fashion choice for Saturday night’s show. The singer wore an unusual metal accessory on her hand which looked like it could cause an injury if the star waved her arm around her fellow judges.

Nicole looked every inch the glamorous star as she stepped out onto the stage in London on Saturday. She wore a cream Zeynep Tosun dress with a silver floral pattern which glittered in the studio lights as she walked out in front of the audience.

Nicole teamed her dress with a pair of cream Crisian & McCaffrey shoes. The former Pussycat Doll wore her hair up on her hair and had the metallic accessory by Shaun Leane on her hand which looked like a small, fingerless glove. Nicole stood out from her fellow X Factor judges who were all wearing black for the semi-final of the show.

Fellow female judge Tulisa looked stunning in a simple, black Alexander McQueen dress for the exciting semi-final night of the singing contest. And her unusual choice of glove may have come in handy if Nicole got into a war of words with one of her fellow panelists – she could have given someone a black eye if she decided to use it in the right way.

But the metallic item did not distract Nicole from giving criticism to the show’s contestants when required. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Jordin Sparks launches ‘Ambition’ fragrance!

After winning season six of American idol, she has gone on to enjoy hit singles worldwide and even starred in a movie with the late Whitney Houston. But the real test of Jordin Sparks success it seems is whether she manages to pull off a launching a perfume under her name.

The singer has joined the celebrity scent market and got the ball rolling with promotion on Saturday as she stepped out for a meet and greet at a mall. The 22-year-old made a personal appearance at Carson’s store inside North Riverside Plaza in Illinois where the scent is currently exclusively sold.

Jordin kept a gold pen in hand to scribble her autograph on her product which features the metallic hue as part of its color theme. The fragrance is aptly named Ambition, something Jordin has certainly got as she branches away from her music roots to carry out projects including her recent film Sparkle.

She looked ready for business in a pair of black pants which were rolled up to show off her patent lace-up flats. Jordin teamed it with a purple top, black cropped jacket and matching scarf, while keeping her hair tied back in a ponytail. Visit Dailymail to continue reading…

See you can do it! Tulisa looks perfect in the midl dress with its nipped in waist and her straightened hair

Her new boyfriend and footballer Danny Simpson watches on as she speaks about her album: ‘I am really excited about the release of my first solo album.

‘I’m also very nervous, it’s kind of like two emotions and I’m either going to feel really extreme about one or the other when it comes out. I’m really happy about the reception I’ve had so far with the three singles.’

‘I feel like all the songs have reached out to the kind of people I wanted them to reach out to,’ she muses. ‘And I think with each song I wanted to draw in different types of people and show everyone that there’s something for everyone on there.’

The German-born 39-year-old had hundreds of colored rhinestones glued to her face prior to arriving at the venue. She wore a bold, glittery gown with gargantuan winged sleeves at the soiree, which will benefit the Red Cross’ Hurricane Sandy-relief effort.

Bedazzled: The German-born 39-year-old had literally had hundreds of coloured rhinestones glued to her face prior to arriving at the venueThe recently divorced mother-of-four also donned a large black wig with dreadlocks topped with a golden headdress with not one but five ruby-eyed cobra heads hissing on it.

Rather than parading her new boyfriend and bodyguard Martin Kristen down the red carpet,

Klum escorted a rosy-cheeked, Santa Claus who looked tiny in comparison to the statuesque model.

It was the first time Heidi attended the party without ex-husband Seal, whom she divorced in April.

The couple became famous for their array of his and hers outfits, including ravens, monkeys and the serpent and the apple from the Garden of Eden. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

X-Factor UK fashion face-off: Tulisa Contostavlos loses out to Nicole Scherzinger on Sunday’s result show…

She still has a lot to learn: Tulisa, 24, wore the Rock & Roll Couture Dress by Suzannah and completed her look with bright pink lipstick, black heels as she wore her hair to one side

Nicole Scherzinger outshone her fellow judge Tulisa Contostavlos on Sunday night’s result show of The X Factor. Stepping out as the picture of elegance, Nicole looked flawless in a black floor length organza gown.

Once again the 34-year-old showed Tulisa, 24, how it’s done when taking to the spotlight.

Nicole Scherzinger wore an Abed Mahfouz dress which featured one shoulder and hugged her enviable shape perfectly.

With Stephen Webster jewelry and Carvela shoes, Scherzinger looked immaculate as she blew kisses to the crowd.

The Don’t Hold Your Breathe singer opted to keep her make-up light as she wore her dark hair in loose curls styled in a center parting.

Tulisa on the other hand didn’t quite get it right in her monochrome mid-length dress.

Wearing a sleeveless, collared gown which featured black lace detailing and a sheer full pleated skirt, the Rock & Roll Couture Dress by Suzannah failed to flatter Tulisa’s frame.

Opting to wear her hair to one side in curls, the Young singer finished her look with bright pink lipstick and a pair of peep toe heels. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Mark Zuckerberg made $3.5 Billion last month!

Mark ZuckerbergNovember was a good month for Facebook and its CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

Facebook‘s stock shot up from $21.08 a share on the first day of trading in November to $28 a share at the end of the day Friday, its highest price since July. Zuckerberg, who owns about 504 million shares of Facebook stock, gained about $3.48 billion as a result.

When Facebook first went public at $38 a share in May, Zuckerberg’s shares were worth $19.1 billion. In the following months, the stock dropped to less than half that IPO price to $17.55 in late August, pushing Zuckerberg’s net worth down to $8.84 billion.

Since then, Facebook’s stock has recovered in fits and starts and so has Zuckerberg’s wealth. November proved to be by far the most robust growth month for the stock to date, thanks to two big factors. First, the company had a strong earnings report in late October, which showed that Facebook was making progress in monetizing mobile.

Secondly, the second and largest lockup period for stocks held by employees finally expired in the middle of November, which was something investors had been dreading for months and arguably held down the stock price.

As of Friday, Zuckerberg’s net worth was $14.1 billion and will likely only continue to grow in December. Visit Mashable to continue reading…

Khloé Kardashian: “What Lamar doesn’t want for Christmas…”

khloe kardashian and lamarWhen shopping for Lamar Odom, the Kardashians can cross one popular holiday gift choice off their lists – electronics.

“Kourtney asked: ‘Would Lamar like an iPad mini for Christmas?'” I said, ‘Absolutely not!’ He would have no idea what to do with,” Khloé Kardashian told reporters Thursday after The X Factor. “He’d be, like, ‘I can’t write on this thing.”

Despite his technological ineptitude, Odom does brave Skype to stay connected with his wife while playing away games with the Los Angeles Clippers.

“I have to walk him through it on the phone and it takes forever,” Kardashian joked of getting her husband to use video chatting service. “He’s just not a very big electronics person.”

Staying connected is key for the couple, who celebrated their third wedding anniversary in September.

“We are very spiritual and we say our prayers with each other every night. He will lead the prayers and it is so sweet,” Kardashian said. “Sometimes his plane will land in the next city [at 4 a.m.] and he will still call me and we say our prayers. If I’m asleep and don’t answer he will text me a prayer. It keeps us together.” Via People.

Madonna and Brazilian toyboy Brahim Zaibat enjoy family time by the pool…

As athletic and impressive as Madonna’s body is, we’ve all seen enough of it on stage to last a lifetime. Slipping into something minuscule and flesh-flashing in her spare time is a bit of a Busman’s Holiday for Madonna so it’s she does the opposite to most people by a pool.

Madge, 54, every the contrarian, covered herself up almost completely as she enjoyed family time time by at her hotel in Rio where she’s set to perform on Sunday night as part of her MDNA tour.

Wearing joggers, a T-shirt featuring black and white Polaroid snaps (that hopefully weren’t of herself), a large warm looking cardigan and a sun-hat; Madonna was as protected from harmful rays as you can get.

The mother-of-four didn’t forget her bug like sunglasses, either, meaning her face was particularly safe. Of course, you don’t get to remain youthful like the queen of pop by sitting in the sun so there is tried and tested method in this apparent madness.

Her boy-thing Brahim has no immediate cares about the ravages of time and was happy to show off her his incredible six pack, as we imagine, his girlfriend perhaps was too.

He looked to be relishing the time spent with his iconic lover and her children and could be seen sauntering around with Rocco, 12.  Lourdes, 16, was also spotted fussing over her gorgeous younger siblings David and Mercy. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Tulisa Contostavlos performs new song ‘Sight of You’ on the X Factor UK…

Quick change: Tulisa changed her outfit from a demure white frock to the leather dress and hoodie

Tulisa went back to her urban roots on Sunday night’s X Factor show. The self-proclaimed female boss took to the stage and performed her new single Sight Of You, while wearing a hoodie.

Tulisa, 24, received some mixed reviews about her performance but the public were pretty unanimous about her rather urban outfit.

The X Factor judge was slated by viewers after she performed in a short dress and a hoodie, reminding people of her days in N-Dubz.

As she sang the ballad on top of a box, she looked visibly afraid to be on the stage all by herself.

One person tweeted ‘Nice hoody tulisa #showingyoururbanroots #ohdear’, while another said: ‘Tulisa is rocking the hoody & dress look I have to admit’. 

Tulisa swapped the white dress she had worn earlier in the show for a short black leather frock that she matched with a sequinned jacket and hoodie.

After singing, a nervous Tulisa struggled to speak as Dermot O’Leary interviewed her post performance.

When asked how she felt after the performance, she told Dermot: ‘Terrifying. You enjoy it but it’s still terrifying.’ Her fellow judge Louis Walsh praised her performance and said: ‘I think she was very good.’

Although Louis was supportive of her vocals the public were not as forgiving with one person tweeting: ‘Slightly awkward how Tulisa criticizes Christopher every week and he’s better than her.’Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Kim Kardashian reveals painful looking sore on her lip as she steps off 18 hour flight…

Kim KardashianWhat with her reality shows, endorsement deals, fashion lines and clothing stores, it seems that Kim Kardashian never stops working.

And all that hard work seemed to have a taken its toll on the busy reality star as she flew into Miami on Sunday.

Tired looking Kim revealed a painful-looking large sore on her upper lip, along with blemishes on her chin.

Dressed down Kim had tied her hair back in a simple bun for her flight, while she wore a simple and conservative outfit of black pants and white blazer.

It wouldn’t be surprising if Kim were feeling a little under the weather. The reality star had just stepped off an 18 hour flight – which even in first class is bound to be a strain.

She jokingly tweeted: ’18 hour flight…fun!’

Adding to the stress on her body the reality star was returning from a three-day whirlwind tour of the Gulf, in which she opened milkshake shops in Kuwait and Bahrain.  It was just the latest long haul flight for permanently jet lagged Kim. In recent weeks she has visited Italy, London and Los Angeles.

But there isn’t likely to be much of a break for Kim, who is in the midst of filming her new reality show, Kourtney And Kim Take Miami. Kim suffers from the skin condition psoriasis, and on her reality show has previously talked about how she uses makeup to disguise the effects.

Kim Kardashian nervously pets a camel on her trip to Bahrain… and then has a glass of it’s milk…

She was in town to launch a milkshake store. And Kim Kardashian certainly seems to have embraced her mission – even tucking into a glass of camel’s milk.
The reality star tweeted a picture of the drink, which she entitled ‘Got Camel’s Milk?’ in a reference to the famous marketing campaign.

Camel’s milk is traditionally considered a treatment for everything from constipation to tuberculosis and is now marketed as a health food due to its low fat and high levels of iron and B vitamins. Kim also shared pictures of herself petting a camel – although she seemed to be quite nervous.

Approaching a sitting animal, the 32-year-old reached out to stroke his back, before jumping away when it moved. Kim wore a conservative black pantsuit with a white vest underneath for her visit to the desert, which came during her three-day-trip to the Gulf. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Punctual Madonna skips the traffic… with the help of a helicopter!

When you simply go by the name Madonna, there’s no chance of getting stuck in tedious traffic with the commoners. The pop superstar makes sure of that by taking a reliable yet extravagant mode of transport to her various gigs as he demonstrated on Sunday.

The 54-year-old was in Brazil – where she has a string of concerts taking place in the next few days – and opted to ride a helicopter to her concert venue in Rio de Janeiro. Hard working Madonna clearly didn’t want to take any chances with getting trapped amongst cars on the road and risk arriving late for her performance, so she decided to fly instead of driving.

She could be seen getting out of a car and making her way across a lawn to the aircraft which would transport her to the destination in hardly any time at all. Madonna wore the casual attire of a hooded tracksuit top and jogging bottoms with the number 86 emblazoned across one leg.

The 29-year-old and her backing dancer had a romantic meal at Zuma restaurant and went home together looking completely smitten.

Cheryl beamed as she got into the backseat of her car despite the fact that her big Girls Aloud comeback album failed to set the charts alight.

The girl group only managed to get to number nine with new record Ten, as they were beaten by acts such as Olly Murs and Neil Diamond. However, being in the company of Tre, Cheryl quickly forgot the woes of her band and looked radiant as the couple raced off into the night.

Stylish: The 27 Dresses star looked glam and polished despite travelling with a young infant

Flying alone with a new baby would cause most mothers untold stress – but not cool as a cucumber Katherine Heigl,

The 27 Dresses star was snapped at Los Angeles International Airport with her eight-month-old baby girl on Sunday and not a hair was out of place.

It is unclear where the 34-year-old actress was jetting off too but she only had a small but stylish suitcase with her so it was probably a short trip.

The former Grey’s Anatomy star chose an elegant but comfortable ensemble for the journey.

She was seen in skinny blue jeans and a light peach shirt under a cream ribbed jumper – and she topped it off with a soft brown fur gilet.

Wearing brown suede flats boots her hair blonde hair was coiffed in loose Fifties inspired waves and her make-up was natural save for her pink lipstick.

Tiny Adalaide, who she adopted from South Korea in April, was carried in a front sling and looked cute as a button in turquoise pants and a little checked shirt. Heigl, who is married to musician Josh Kelley, has another daughter Naleigh, three, also originally from South Korea. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Tyga: “I had it EASY growing up; my mom drove a Range!”

TygaBiracial rapper Tyga enjoyed a cushy upbringing in the Valley, NOT Compton. At least that’s what the rapper said on a game show back in 2008 and TMZ has obtained the unaired footage.

The show was called “Bustas” where wannabe-rappers compete against each other to see who can embody ugly rap stereotypes the best including playing borderline offensive games like “Guess the Rapper By His Grill” and “Is This a Real Rolex?”

Tyga appeared on the show and immediately sacrificed any semblance of street credibility in the process by claiming he grew up in a well-to-do household in the Valley, and his parents drove a Range Rover.

But Tyga, who has since claimed he grew up in Compton insisted: “I’m still street.”

Thankfully for Tyga, the show was never picked up and the clip never made it to air until now.

The highlight: “Bustas” culminates with a freestyle rap, in which the contestants are asked to incorporate buzz words like “amoeba” into their raps, and Tyga’s so bad he gets his ass boo’d off stage. (For the record, Tyga does not know how to pronounce the word “amoeba”)

It’s pretty bad, but you should check out the video to see if Tyga actually loses the entire show. Click here to watch the video clip.

Marvin Gaye’s son to Lenny Kravitz: “PLEASE don’t play my dad!”

Lenny Kravitz as Marvin GayeMarvin Gaye’s son wants his childhood friend Lenny Kravitz to walk away from the role of a lifetime, playing the Motown legend in an upcoming biopic and says he’s shocked Lenny signed on for a project he calls “shameful.”

Kravitz will play Gaye in “Sexual Healing” (working title) which reportedly focuses on Marvin’s life in the 80s when he battled drug abuse and depression before his father shot and killed him in 1984.

Marvin Gaye III tells TMZ: “The producers and directors of this film are very wrong and shameful . [They're] trying to do a film about a low period in his life. They don’t even know the whole story.”

Marvin’s son says he and Kravitz were schoolmates and remained friends to this day so he wants to “talk to him about why he would do this.”

Marvin Jr. tells TMZ he and other family members are meeting with lawyers to try to stop production and added: “I would hope [Lenny] doesn’t have any idea that we are against this film being done.”

TMZ reached out to Kravitz for comment but so far, there has been no response.

Amber Rose shows off her baby bump at 28 weeks in daring photo…

She is in the final trimester of her pregnancy so it is no wonder her bump is rather large. So large, in fact, that Amber Rose had to explain to her fans that she wasn’t being indecent when she showed off her burgeoning belly on Twitter.

The seven-month pregnant model posted a snap of her huge stomach along with the caption: ‘I swear I have shorts on in this pic but my belly is so big u can’t see them Lol’

The star shows her stomach from a high angle which failed to show any hint of clothing on her body. A second image showed the 29-year-old with her vest top rolled up and a pair of tiny shorts being pushed down by her growing belly.

Also flaunting her many body tattoos, claw-like nails and trendy buzzed haircut, the model took the image of herself using her iPhone and a mirror.‘28 weeks Rosebuds & Rosestuds! :-) she wrote.

It’s no wonder she is confident enough to show off her body at the moment.
Despite her pregnancy Amber is trying to be healthy and not overindulge. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Friends say Kansas City Chief Jovan Belcher struggled with head injuries, alcohol, and painkillers before killing his girlfriend!

Belcher Friends now say Kansas City Chief Jovan Belcher’s mental state may have been deteriorated due to a history of head injuries, pain killers, and alcohol abuse.

A person claiming to be close to Belcher,25, has revealed in a series of e-mails that these issues as well as long-term domestic problems between himself and his girlfriend may have led Belcher to the murder-suicide he committed Saturday morning.

Belcher killed 22-year-old girlfriend and mother of his child Kasandra Perkins before driving to Arrowhead stadium and turning the gun on himself.

The couple’s orphaned 3-month-old daughter Zoey will now be raised by his mother in the Long Island home where he grew up.

In a series of e-mails to Deadspin, the friend said: ‘They have been arguing for quite sometime and had separated 2 weeks ago.’

The anonymous friend wrote: ‘He had brought her and the baby back home however, they were both arguing on a regular basis. Both of them are/were very young and immature and that combined with other factors led to this tragedy.’

The friend adds that many of their recent arguments focused on Perkins failing college classes Belcher paid for and quitting her retail job, as well as telling Belcher that she was leaving him and would find a lawyer to “get as much money as possible” from the football player.

And Belcher may have reacted to all this differently if he wasn’t messed up from booze, meds, and taking shots to the head on the field.

‘When it comes to prescription medication it is unclear from my perspective whether it was diagnosed and authorized by the team or not,’ the friend wrote.

‘However I know he was under the influence of narcotics for pain and I’m sure the toxicology report will reflect this. However, Jovan drank A LOT. On a nightly basis. This is not a mystery as he did so in public and private.’Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Nicole Scherzinger grins like a Cheshire cat as two of her acts make it to  X-Factor UK finale…

Listen up guys, she's sha-mazing! Nicole is certainly pleased as punch as she heads into Radio 1Nicole Scherzinger may not have been the cream of the crop on US X Factor but she has certainly made up for lost time in the UK show – getting both her semi-finalists through to the last show of the series.

Perhaps that’s why the solo singer looked like the Pussycat Doll who got the cream as she sauntered into Radio 1 on Monday morning.

Wrapped up in a warm furry coat the 34-year-old couldn’t hide her Cheshire cat grin as she headed into the London studios to promote her acts James Arthur, 24, and Jahmene Douglas, 22, ahead of Sunday’s final.

Fellow judge Gary Barlow, who has Liverpudlian Christopher Maloney in the final, didn’t look as pleased as headed into the studio with his finalist.

Call center worker Christopher, who frequently says he is the people’s choice, didn’t seem to care as he grabbed his mentor’s shoulders and make a victory sign.

His appearance in the final three has been controversial, with the judges repeatedly giving him negative criticism during the live shows for being ‘karaoke’ and ‘dated’. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Leona Lewis attacks female artists for acts ‘verging on porn’ and says they should ‘have some self-respect’…

LeonaBiracial pop star Leona Lewis has attacked women in the music industry for acts that ‘verge on porn’ and said female artists should ‘have some self-respect’.

The former X Factor winner attacked her compatriots for allowing themselves to be ‘sexually objectified’.

She said it was ‘fine to embrace your femininity and your sexiness but with some girl performers it verges on porn and that’s when I think: “What are you doing? That’s gross. Have some self-respect.”‘

Role model: Leona Lewis said that it was 'all about looks' for most female acts in the music industryAnd she claimed that the reality show that made her name was one of the few exceptions, adding: ‘The X Factor is about voice and personality. But outside that, in this industry, for female artists it’s about looks.’

However, 2010’s final of the show received more than 2,000 complaints to Ofcom after raunchy performances by Rihanna and Christina Aguilera.

Christina wore a super-short black dress, while her female dancers, who were bent over chairs, wore suspenders, bra tops, fishnet stockings and basques in the raunchy routine.

Rihanna’s performance in a bra-top, pants and fishnets was judged by Ofcom as having ‘some mildly sexual overtones and included images of her gyrating and rocking her buttocks’.

Ofcom said that over one million young children were watching the live final, and 50,000 saw the repeat at 9.30 am the following morning. The regulator warned afterwards that ‘sexualized clothing and dance routines’ should not feature on programs watched by children, and Simon Cowell promised to ‘tone it down a bit’.

Fresh-faced Heidi Klum shakes off late night partying to help Sandy relief effort in New York…

A man of enterprise once claimed sleeping is for wimps. And it seems Heidi Klum shares this mindset, for she shook off a night of partying to hand out Storm Sandy aid in New York on Sunday.

Hours after her famous costume party, the supermodel looked like she was having a great time as she lugged around boxes and handed out supplies to those left in need due to the natural disaster.

She was working with AOL, Patch and The American Red Cross to provide the much needed supplies. And she seemed to relish getting stuck in with aid workers and helping them with their task in Seaford, which is in the Nassau County of New York state.

The 39-year-old had dressed in a suitably utilitarian way, donning a navy bubble jacket, leggings and boots. The Project Runway host also seemed to be enjoying getting to mix with the locals, and was spotted giving them a cheerful wave as she went about her work.

She also spent time pressing flesh with the local emergency service workers, even posing for photos with the lucky chaps. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Happy! Gabriel Aubry drops off daughter Nahla at school…

Little helper: Nahla looked cute in her colourful outfit and little beige mac as she was dropped off at schoolGabriel Aubry is on the mend following his Thanksgiving brawl with Olivier Martinez, judging by pictures of the male model on Monday.

While the 37-year-old concealed his eyes beneath a big pair of sunglasses, the bruising and grazes around his lips and nose appeared to have healed.

Aubry looked much healthier in comparison to the pictures released by court following his brutal fight with Martinez.

Halle Berry’s ex displayed his still-healing complexion as he spent time with his four-year-old daughter Nahla.

Aubry dressed down in jeans and a black leather jacket, teamed with a baseball cap and sunglasses, as he dropped his little girl off at school.

Nahla, meanwhile, went for something more colourful in a pair of green jeggings, black quilted boots and a white T-shirt bearing the slogan ‘Love Who You Are’ as she cuddled up to her dad.

Later in the day, Halle was seen picking up Nahla from the education centre – and appeared to have begun to put the trauma of the fight behind her as she beamed from ear to ear while taking Nahla and a young friend home. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Tulisa Contostavlos wears festive sweater to album signing of ‘The Female Boss’…

It’s the fear of every celebrity, that someone would be wearing the same outfit as they stepped out in public. But Tulisa shrugged off the awkward situation with a smile as she was met by a fan sporting the same Christmas jumper on Monday.

The X Factor star was attending an album signing at a Tesco store in Birmingham. The jumper in question comes from fashion brand Bank’s new winter collection. And as the face of the high street retailer, it’s no surprise to see Tulisa in one of their designs.

But the curse of the high street and it’s easy availability to the public meant the 24-year old singer wasn’t the only one in that Midlands supermarket to favor its knitted charm.

The brunette fan paired her jumper with some grey skinny jeans, whilst Tulisa opted for a leather skater skirt, opaque tights and lace up boots all in black. The Female Boss also matched her lipstick to the pink shade of the pullover with her darkest brown hair pulled back into a pony tail.

‘The Bodyguard’ stage musical officially opens in London…

the bodyguard musical posterA stage musical based on the 1992 movie starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner has opened at London’s Adelphi Theatre to a mixed critical reception — but universal praise for its big-voiced star.

Reviewers raved Thursday about Heather Headley’s performance as Rachel Marron, a superstar singer who falls for the former secret service agent (Lloyd Owen) assigned to protect her from a stalker.

Critic Mark Shenton in The Stage newspaper found Headley — an American actor and singer who has won both a Tony and a Grammy Award — “an utterly compelling star” who combines “an authentic glamour and blazingly soulful vocals.”

Evening Standard critic Henry Hitchings called her “mesmerizing,” while the Daily Telegraph’s Charles Spencer praised Headley’s “sassy stage presence” and declared her renditions of songs such as “I Will Always Love You” even better than those by Houston, who died in February aged 48.

As for the rest of the show, some critics found campy fun where others saw just another uninspired jukebox musical. Visit theGrio to continue reading…

NY court OKs $1M school racial harassment award…

gavel 16x9One of the biggest awards ever issued for racial harassment in high school — $1 million — was upheld Monday by a federal appeals panel that said it was fair for a jury to conclude a school district should have done more to stop demeaning, threatening and violent conduct directed at a student.

The decision by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan left in place the award for Anthony Zeno, a former student at Stissing Mountain High School in Dutchess County. The award had been reduced from the $1.25 million a jury originally awarded the now 23-year-old haircutter during a 2010 trial.

The appeals court said the award wasn’t unreasonable given that payouts for harassment in similar cases have ranged from the low six figures to $1 million in one other instance.

The appeals court’s opinion noted that Zeno is “dark-skinned and biracial, half-white, half-Latino.” It said he “had been menaced, threatened and taunted” at a school where minorities represented less than 5 percent of the student population.

“He endured numerous serious — and sometimes life threatening — incidents of harassment,” it said. Visit theGrio to continue reading…

Rupert Murdoch’s papers face accusations that he paid off American soldiers for ‘underwear’ photos of Saddam Hussein…

Controversial: The front page of the Sun in 2005 which featured the image of the humiliated fallen dictator Saddam HusseinFresh accusations are flying at two arms of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire as the British Parliament accuses the media mogul of offering big bucks to U.S. soldiers in exchange for a photo of ousted Iraqi president Saddam Hussein in his underwear.

The new accusations came during a new debate over reforms suggested by the Leveson Inquiry, and how Murdoch’s News Corp got their hands on the photo, taken in an Iraqi prison, that showed the dictator in nothing but his skivvies.

New York PostThe image was splashed across the covers of News Corp publications The Sun and the New York Post in May 2005. The Sun headline read:, ‘The Tyrant’s in His Pants’ while the Post went with ‘Butcher of Saghdad.’

Now, British lawmakers are charging that Murdoch and other News Corp senior officials are snubbing authorities as they investigate allegations of phone hacking against the firm. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Rupert Murdoch’s iPad-only newspaper The Daily closes after less than two years…

The Daily, Rupert Murdoch’s struggling iPad-only newspaper, is to close after less than two years in the latest costly Internet disaster for the media tycoon.
News Corporation said that the paper would publish its last edition on December 15 with staff redundancies expected.

According to the New York Times, The Daily was losing around $30m a year, meaning that over its two year lifespan it will have cost Murdoch at least $60million. Its editor Jesse Angelo will become the publisher of the New York Post, which is also owned by the company, with some journalists moving to the paper too.

The closure will be a huge embarrassment to Murdoch, for whom The Daily was one of his pet projects. In a statement, he admitted the paper did not get enough readers and it was hemorrhaging money from the off too.

In its second quarter in business, The Daily reported losses of $10 million and just four months ago it shed a third of its staff – around 50 employees. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

The wild one: Nicole looked super cool and extremely sultry in her set of leather boots and matching jacket and pants

It was supposed to be James Arthur’s grand homecoming but the X Factor hopeful was upstaged by his own mentor.

Nicole Scherzinger unwittingly took center stage as she rolled into Middlesbrough wearing a rather racy biker outfit on Tuesday morning.

The former Pussycat Doll, 34, looked on fire as she slipped her svelte body into some leathers and jumped on a motorbike.

Both her and James had been driven to the north England town on the back of Harley Davidson’s so James could thank his homegrown supporters.

Unfortunately for Arthur, Nicole’s hot look was a big enough hit to take the majority of attention away from him.

Scherzinger looked great in a all black outfit that showed off both her style and amazing figure.

She wore a pair of knee-high boots that she teamed with a pair of slim fit leather pants and a super cool matching jacket.

To battle the cold northern weather she also wore a thick black wool jumper but added a sense of Hollywood by sporting sunglasses. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Bruno Mars releases new song ‘When I Was Your Man’…

Bruno Mars when I was your man single coverBruno Mars is back and bringing us some music that we can all relate to. He’s giving a voice to heartbreak on his latest single “When I Was Your Man” off his upcoming sophomore album Unorthodox Jukebox, which will be released on Tuesday, December 11.

On the piano-heavy, mellow track multiracial Bruno sings about losing his love because he didn’t pay attention to her or do the little things required to keep his woman’s heart. Those things include taking her out dancing, buying her flowers and even just holding her hand.

Because he messed up his relationship with her, she eventually moves on to someone else who can offer her all of the things that made her feel special. Via NecoleBitchie.

Nicole Scherzinger upstages James Arthur onstage in tiny leather skirt…

Lovely in leather: Nicole shows off her tony waists and killer legs in her outfit, which included a Middlesbrough football shirt

Lovely in leather: Nicole shows off her tony waists and killer legs in her outfit, which included a Middlesbrough football shirt

She has played gigs across the globe in some of the best arenas, so perhaps Nicole Scherzinger was just a bit confused to end up in Middlesbrough Town Hall supporting James Arthur.

But she threw her back into it and the now solo singer couldn’t help but upstage her X Factor protege onstage in a tiny leather skirt and a modified Middlesbrough football shirt gathered around her tiny waist.

In what looked like a rather energetic performance from the 34-year-old, Nicole swung her jet-black hair around the stage while heartthrob James stood clutching his guitar and shooting her looks of respect.

It must have been a far cry from what James imagined he would be doing this time last year and the former pub singer looked like he certainly appreciated the rapturous applause.

But it was mostly eyes on Nicole who looked every inch the Middlesbrough siren in her football top and patterned tiny skirt.

With a sleek performance from the pair it seems James’ homecoming had the desired effect on the X Factor finalists confidence. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…
