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…

The astonishing arsenal of guns handed in by people living in America’s deadliest city – just hours after Sandy Hook massacre…

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.

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…

Kansas City Chiefs player Jovan Belcher had a ‘secret girlfriend’ and had planned to shoot his live-in partner…

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…

Spotted: Tulisa Contostavlos supporting her footballer man Danny Simpson at game…

Tense: Tulisa was seen biting her bottom lip as she paid close attention to the gameShe met her new man after a mutual friend set them up and ever since she’s been besotted with him. Keen to show her beau just how much he means to her, Tulisa was pictured on Saturday in the stands at St. James’ Park.

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.

At the final whistle, despite battling it out Simpson’s squad came up short and were defeated 3-1 by Roberto Mancini’s boys Manchester City. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

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…

Congrats, girlfriend! Jessica was all smiles at her best friend Cacee’s wedding

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’.

He plays a salesman for a natural gas company who experiences life-changing events after arriving in a small town, where his corporation wants to tap into the available resources. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

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.

Doutzen Kroes sizzles in sexy playsuit for Victoria’s Secret swimwear shoot in St. Barts…

Blowing in the wind: Doutzen let a little breeze inspire her to do a few sexy hair flips

She’s known for being one of the famous ‘Angels’ who struts her stuff in nothing more than her underwear for Victoria’s Secret.

But it seems Doutzen Kroes doesn’t need a catwalk or underwear to show off her fabulous figure. Instead the Dutch model posed in a variety of beachwear items as she shot for Victoria’s Secret in St. Barts on Saturday.

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 sues Telegraph over ‘elephant polo’ story!

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.

The article, headed “Elephant polo at Campbell’s party criticized”, said celebrity guests at a party thrown by Campbell for her partner, the Russian billionaire Vladislav Doronin, would play the controversial sport in three-a-side teams.

The online version of the article has been removed from the Telegraph website. A spokeswoman for Campbell described the claim as “completely untrue” and said lawyers in London had been instructed to take action.

Campbell formally filed her libel claim against Telegraph Media Group, the publisher of the Daily Telegraph, at the high court in London on 5 December. She has instructed the London law firm Michael Simkins over the article. Visit the Guardian to continue reading…

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…

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.

The pictures were taken in Las Vegas, where Coco is currently performing in her topless show, Peepshow, in a role she recently took over from pregnant Holly Madison earlier this year. Ice-T’s wife has been in Sin City without her husband and the famous rapper has been left outraged by the pictures – but days later she was by his side in NYC. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

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…

Nick Cannon has revealed that he dumped Kim Kardashian after she ‘lied’ to him about the existence of her now-infamous sex tape. Despite calling the reality star ‘one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet’ Nick explained that he couldn’t forgive her for denying the tape existed.

Radio presenter Nick, now happily married to Mariah Carey, briefly dated Kim from September 2006 to January 2007.

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. It’s release brought her to a wide audience and eventually led to her now-lucrative reality star career. Nick revealed that he had always suspected that Kim might have had something to do with the tape’s release.

Kim unveils the all-white 2012 Kardashian family Christmas card plus a trip down Kardashian family Christmas card lane…

With that many egos in the room it’s hard to stand out. But Kendall Jenner had no trouble stealing the limelight from her big sisters as she posed in backless dress for the annual family Christmas card. As Kim, Khloe and Kourtney smiled for the camera, their little sister sat at the front showing off her best model pose in her daring choice of outfit.

This year’s card saw all the family gather for the annual tradition, including two new members – Kourtney’s daughter Penelope and Kim’s tragic kitten Mercy. Adorable Penelope can be seen gazing wide eyed at the camera, a white lace band on her head.

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…

Spotted: Make-up free Khloe Kardashian wears her sweatpants out and about…

A perk of having sisters who share your passion for fashion is the constant exchange of clothes. But as the tallest female member of the Kardashian clan this is something Khloe can not always easily get away with.

Running errands in Beverly Hills on Monday, Mrs. Odom, 28, stepped out in a pair of sweatpants which looked like they may have belonged to one of her sisters as they were a a size too small.  As Khloe strutted along in her bottoms which were clearly swinging above her ankles, she hid her eyes behind a pair of sunglasses as she sported a hooded jumper.

Adding to the wardrobe mishap, the reality TV star opted to wear a pair of black suede wedged sneakers which only highlighted the fact her pants needed to be longer. Wearing her dark hair down, Khloe accessorized with a animal print handbag as she held several white carrier bags in one hand.

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…

Simmons, who recently split from her partner Djimon Hounsou after more than five years together. In a message to fans on her Twitter page, the former model said the pair had been apart for ‘some time.’

She signed off: ‘#HappyThanksgiving’

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.

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.

Norah Jones joins mourners at memorial service for her father, legendary sitar player Ravi Shankar…

Norah Jones led mourners at a memorial service for her father, Indian sitar player Ravi Shankar, in San Diego on Thursday. The Come Away With Me singer, 33, and her sister, Grammy-nominated sitarist Anoushka Shankar, 31, joined hundreds of friends and family to pay tribute to the virtuoso.

Boyish look: The Promethius actress wore a boxy blue turtleneck and loose cropped jeansIt’s a far cry from her trademark blonde locks. Charlize Theron stepped out for lunch at a sushi restaurant with a gal pal in West Hollywood, Los Angeles on Thursday with her short hair on full display.

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…

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

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…

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.

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.

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!

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.

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…

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.

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…

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…

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.

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…

  1. RIP to the victims of Sandy Hook. I can only imagine their pain. I’m almost shocked at the number of guns that were exchanged in New Jersey…I say almost ‘cos I know how as a nation we love guns. I hope something is done quickly ‘cos this should never happen again. ‘Wishing the Obamas’ a wonderful Xmas in Hawaii

    • RIP to them again. You’re right we need to do something and it should have been done 11 years ago. Alicia Keys is being sued? i just listened to both songs and I don’t see how they sound alike. Maybe it’s just me. The Kardashian Xmas card is interesting…I have no comments for Ice-T and his wife Coco

  2. You are both right. We need to act fast. I’m glad celebrities are using their stardom to voice their concern. Joe Biden we are counting on you to execute the appropriate laws…Merry Xmas to the Obamas and all the KolorBlind Magazine readers.

  3. So sad about the state of our country. I just heard about another gun violence that took place in a church. Unbelievable! So much for a safe Nation!!! Well unto other things. Ice-T and Coco seem to be abnormal. What husband allows his wife to strip for the world then gets upset when she’s caught snuggling up to another man? So Kim is acting? It looks like all she has to do is be herself in this movie. The anti-gun PSA is nice. I hope we do something about the violence.

  4. I can’t get over Ice-T and Coco’s mess of a situation – smh. As for Kim it looks like all she’s doing is being herself. Tyler Perry is this what you wanted? Congrats to Donald Faison on his wedding.
