She’s been number-one on the Billboard music chart, so it’s only nature that Carly Rae Jepsen would now be featured on the cover of Billboard magazine.
In the publication’s latest issue, the wildly successful singer – she sings “Call Me Maybe,” perhaps you’ve of it? – opens up about her recent professional journey – from struggling artist… to Justin Bieber record label signee… to top of the music world in a matter of months – and expresses nothing but shock.
“Pretty much every day, there’s a moment where I’m having to pinch myself and think, ‘When did this happen to my life?’” Carly More >
On Wednesday, the reality star yet again flaunted her curves by sharing photos of herself on Instagram. On this department alone, Kim Kardashian has been far from shy with regards to showing off her body and posing in sexy bikinis.
The 31-year-old “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star captioned her four photo collage saying “Wet & Wild.” Almost resembling a Terry Richardson shoot, Kim Kardashian wears a bikini with a cut out and see through cover on top. And talking about the “wet”, she posed seductively while her hair was damp.
It’s evident that the reality star and current girlfriend ofMore >
Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber is invited for questioning at the Los Angeles County Sherriff’s office after a paparazzo complained about being “roughened” up by the young singer at a shopping center.
The brawl allegedly happened after the certain paparazzo tried to snap a picture of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez after they came out of theater at The Commons at Calabasas. The paparazzo reportedly called 911 and complained about a pain on his chest.
The 18-year-old “Boyfriend” singer was captured in photos while he was looking fiery and mad. Bieber lost his calm and allegedly attacked theMore >
Adam Lambert has made history.
The former American Idol runner-up shot past another famous series alumnus this week and claimed the number-one spot on the Billboard 200 for his latest album, “Trespassing.” In doing so, Lambert became the first openly gay man to sit atop the chart.
Yes, Clay Aiken achieved the same status with his 2003 CD, but he did not come out of the closet until five years later.
Of course, the important thing is not Lambert’s sexuality; it’s his success. The eccentric crooner sold 77,000 units of “Trespassing” in the seven days since its release. Well done,More >
The Israeli model tops this year’s Maxim Hot 100 List. Bar who has been modeling since the age of 15 was announced the hottest celebrity for this year’s issue of Maxim magazine.
Bar Refaeli broadcasted her happiness on Twitter with the news that she is placed at the top spot this year. She said that she was both excited and honored to be hailed number one. It was also the first time Maxim allowed readers to participate in the decision making.
Meanwhile, Olivia Munn lands on the number two spot while Mila Kunis takes third spot. Mila who was on fifth spot last year bounced her way up of theMore >
The “Can’t Be Tamed” singer definitely proves her wild side when she attended the 2012 Billboard Music Awards. Reaping the rewards from her yoga classes and a gluten-free diet, the former Disney star flaunted her toned figure but revealed a bit too much this time.
Miley Cyrus wore a white Jean Paul Gaultier blazer without pants or bra. Probably wanting to prove that she is more mature now, her very low cut outfit revealed much of her cleavage. A nip slip prone outfit that could be a tad inappropriate for a 19-year-old.
The singer completed the look with tousled hair, almost in attempt toMore >
Britney Spears joined Rihanna at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards for some “S&M” last night. Their sexy duet ended in a kiss … which ABC moronically cut off.
It didn’t last as long as Britney’s tonguing of Madonna at the 2003 VMAs, but the kiss was still captured by some astute (and possibly excited) photographers!
Apparently ABC wasn’t a fan and quickly cut away from Britney Spears and Rihanna’s performance in favor of a boring shot of the audience. So pics will have to do.
Not perfect, but when you’ve got Britney Spears and Rihanna quasi-making out in kinky S&M gear, how can you reallyMore >
Granted, the headline above could apply to many things.
Justin Bieber is number-one in the hearts of teenage girls… talk show bookers… YouTube play lists… charitable organizations.
In this case, however, we’re referring to the Billboard 200 Albums Chart, where “Justin Bieber, Never Say Never: The Remixes” sits atop the list with the most copies sold last week.
Here’s a glance at the top 10, two spots on which are occupied by The Biebs. Incredible.
- Justin Bieber, Never Say Never: The Remixes: 161,000
- Mumford & Sons, Sigh No More: 133,000
- Now 37 compilation: 95,000
- Lady Antebellum, Need
The cast of Glee have performed songs from such popular artists as Madonna, Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, even Michael Jackson but that apparently isn’t good enough for show creator Ryan Murphy who plans to debut two original songs when the series airs on March 15.
Columbia Records on Tuesday announced that the tracks will debut during the show and also released the name of the songs “Loser Like Me” and “Get It Right.” Both songs will also be part of the Glee: The Music, Volume 5 CD which will premiere before the show on March 8.
According to Billboard.com:
“While ‘Get It Right’ is described as a
[HMG Celebrity News] – Most stars don’t like to be seen without makeup but Katy Perry had little choice after her new husband, Russell Brand posted this rather less than endearing photo on Twitter.
The 26-year old singer is known for her heavy use of cosmetics, but the photo shows her having just woken up, and the pained expression proves she was less than pleased to encounter a camera.
The photo vanished from Russell’s Twitter stream soon after it surfaced. But with 1.7-million followers the chances that Katy’s unvarnished exposure would go unnoticed were beneath zero.
It could have been worse for Crystal Bowersox.
A month after American Idol champion Lee DeWyze watched his debut album sell fewer copies during its first week of release than any CD in show history, Crystal’s “Farmer’s Daughter” moved 57,804 units.
That figure was good enough for number-28 on the Billboard 200 Chart. It was also about 20,000 more sales than her fellow finalist’s initial effort.
Among other American Idol alums, Carrie Underwood, Fantasia and Daughtry also earned spots this week on the Billboard 200.
[HMG Celebrity News] – As you’ll recall, Will Smith’s daughter, Willow Smith released a song in September called ‘Whip My Hair.’ While the song has become a success, it’s now brought the small star an exciting new gig – with Justin Bieber.
“Got news that my big bro @justinbieber invited me on his European Tour in March…So exciting!” the 10-year old told her 263,000+ feathery fans on Twitter yesterday. ”Maybe I’ll let Jaden come. LOL!”
And Justin has good reason to want her on-board – the demand for Willow’s song is getting insane; It reached No. 5 on the Billboard R&B / Hip-Hop chart, it’sMore >
Jessica Simpson’s holiday season is off to a rough start.
At least professionally. Her latest Christmas CD, for which she has done many media appearances, debuted at #123 on the Billboard 200 charts with a modest 10,000 in sales. Pretty bad. It’s almost like her singing career ended in like 2002.
Anyway, at least she’s still engaged to Eric Johnson!
The future Jessica and Eric Simpson roll to the airport.

Lil Wayne scored a #2 album on the Billboard charts this week, marking a solid debut for his latest release I Am Not A Human Being. Whether he knows it is unclear.
Weezy, of course, has been solitary confinement – no conversation, TV, or music – and will remain there for 23 hours a day until his November 4 release from jail.
That’s gotta be harder than Brett Favre in those pics he sent to Jenn Sterger.
Weezy is in solitary, or in the politically correct world, “punitive segregation,” after sneaking an iPod charger and headphones into his cell. Hey, you gotta rock out.

Last month’s Britney Spears Glee episode earned a show-record 13.3 million viewers and several spots on the Billboard charts. But the response wasn’t all positive.
Some reviewers felt it was fluff from a series renowned for great writing on weighty topics (see this week’s “Grilled Cheesus“). Others were just plain offended.
The Parents’ Television Council deemed the “Britney/Brittany” episode the worst thing on TV that week, a “pandering tribute” to a “toxic teen role model.” Ouch!
Some parents were not thrilled with Brittany or Britney.
Part of the PTC’s beef was that more children areMore >
