‘They’re starting to seriously worry’: Concern growing about low turnout at Obama inauguration!
Crowds may have flocked to the National Mall to see President Obama make history in 2009, but the team behind the president’s 2013 inauguration bash later this month are bracing themselves for a ton of empty seats.
The ceremony that Washington will stage in a few weeks won’t be the historic affair it was in 2009, when nearly 2 million people flocked to the Capitol to watch Obama take the oath of office. This time, District of Columbia officials expect between 600,000 and 800,000 people for Obama’s public swearing-in on the steps of the Capitol on Monday, January 21.
Two weeks before the big day, plenty of hotel rooms still haven’t been booked. Four years ago, some hotels sold out months in advance. There will be just two official inaugural balls this year, both at the Washington Convention Center, rather than 10 official balls at multiple locations around town. The pair of celebrations are the lowest number since 1953, according to the New York Post.
A political insider told the paper: ‘Some on the presidential inaugural committee are starting to seriously worry.’
His inaugural committee has also scaled the celebration back to three days of festivities, instead of four. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Obama says ‘aloha’ to vacation as first family arrives back in Washington!
President Barack Obama has returned to Washington after a winter vacation in Hawaii that was interrupted by the ‘fiscal cliff’ crisis. Obama arrived at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland on Sunday morning after an overnight flight as Sasha and Malia return to school tomorrow.
The president’s annual end-of-year visit to his native state was disrupted just after Christmas when he was forced to return to the capital to help broker a solution on a plan to avert a combination of tax increases and spending cuts that could have plunged the economy back into recession.
He returned to Hawaii on New Year‘s Day. One of the first things he did after touching down in the Aloha state was to indulge in his favorite treat of lemon-lime and cherry flavored shaved ice. The return trip to his native Hawaii adds an estimated $3 million the President’s air travel tab – which will total more than $7 million by the time the First Family returns to the White House later this month.

White House BANS paparazzi images of Sasha and Malia Obama on Hawaiian beach!!!
Paparazzi shots of Malia and Sasha Obama have been quashed by the White House after a photographer reportedly stumbled across the girls on a public beach in Hawaii. The images of the President’s daughters were taken last week while a paparazzo was actually waiting for singer Jessica Simpson to leave her vacation home.
Secret service agents, who were accompanying the girls on their walk, immediately approached the photographer and asked for identification. They allowed the man to keep his camera but gave him a stern warning to stop photographing the first daughters. However when the paparazzo later sold the images to picture agencies, he was slapped with a warning letter from the White House telling him to stop their release.
A source told Celebuzz that the White House sent the photographer an official letter stating that ‘Sasha and Malia’s privacy should be maintained as they were on a private holiday… and that other media had been respecting these requirements’. Visit Celebuzz to continue reading…

President Obama to be sworn into office using two Bibles – one used by Martin Luther King as well as Lincoln Bible…
President Obama is putting a symbolic twist on a time-honored tradition, taking the oath of office for his second term with his hand placed not on a single Bible, but two – one owned by Martin Luther King Jr. and one by Abraham Lincoln.
The inclusion of King’s Bible is particularly significant since the inauguration comes on Jan. 21, the federal holiday in honor of the civil rights leader, who delivered his ‘I Have a Dream’ speech 50 years ago at the Lincoln Memorial.
Obama will be facing the memorial as he takes the oath. King’s Bible, which his children say he used early in his career as a preacher, has never been part of a presidential inauguration before. Though there is no constitutional requirement for the use of a Bible while taking the oath, George Washington began the tradition with a Bible hastily grabbed from St. John’s Masonic Lodge No. 1 for his swearing-in on April 30, 1789, in New York.

Beyonce set to perform National Anthem at President Obama‘s Inauguration
Her performance of the soulful classic At Last was one of the highlights of President Barack Obama‘s first Inauguration. Now Beyonce will once again welcome the Commander In Chief into the Oval office for his second term. The 31-year-old singer has been chosen to sing the National Anthem at the prestigious event on January 21, it was announced on Wednesday.
A vocal supporter of the President, the singer has been chosen to perform along with Kelly Clarkson who will sing ‘My Country ‘Tis Of Thee’ and James Taylor who will be singing ‘America The Beautiful’ on the West Front of the US Capitol in Washington, D.C, the Presidential Inaugural Committee revealed.
And, Obama couldn’t be happier. The 51-year-old President said in a statement: ‘Vice President Biden and I are honored to have these wonderfully talented musical artists perform at the Inaugural ceremony. Their music is often at the heart of the American story and speaks to folks across the country.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Obama nominates ‘anti-Israel’ Chuck Hagel as Pentagon chief!
President Barack Obama today nominated Chuck Hagel as Pentagon chief, daring Republicans to block a decorated Vietnam veteran who ‘bears the scars and the shrapnel of battles he fought in our name’. The nomination will trigger a fresh battle where a number of Democrats are openly skeptical about the former Republican senator following his comments about ‘the Jewish lobby’ and opposition to ‘an openly, aggressively gay’ nominee as ambassador to Luxembourg.
Obama’s choice of the former two-term senator for Nebraska, revealed by congressional Democratic aides on Sunday, is likely to set up a gruelling confirmation fight in the Senate over whether Hagel supports key U.S. ally Israel after he previously called for negotiations with the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas.
The president described him as ‘the leader our troops deserve’, pointing out that he would be the first former enlisted soldier to be U.S. Defence Secretary.
Obama said pointedly: ‘I hope that the Senate will act on these confirmations promptly. When it comes to national security, we don’t like to leave a lot of gaps between the time that one set of leaders transitions out and another transitions in. So we need to get moving quickly on this.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Obama nominates mastermind of controversial drone strike program as next CIA director!
President Obama today nominated the man who masterminded the expansion of the hugely controversial drone program as the new director of the Central Intelligence Agency. John Brennan, 57, the current head of counter-terrorism, has also provoked ire on the Left because of his connection during the Bush administration, when he was a senior CIA officer, to ‘Enhanced Interrogation Techniques‘ such as water-boarding, which many regard as torture.
Despite past controversies, the president today praised him as one of the nation’s most skilled and respected intelligence professionals while announcing his nomination.
‘In John Brennan, the men and women of the CIA will have the leadership of one of our nation’s most skilled and respected intelligence professionals,’ Obama said at the White House.
Alluding to the drone strike program, Obama said: ‘Think about the results. More al-Qaeda leaders and commanders have been removed from the battlefield than at any time since 9/11. He added: ‘John is legendary even in the White House for working hard,” Obama said. “He is one of the hardest working public servants I have ever seen.’
Obama picked Brennan over Michael Morrell, the acting CIA chief, who stood alongside Brennan and the president during the announcement. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Obama jokes Jack Lew’s loopy signature could ‘debase our currency’ as he makes him official pick for Treasury Secretary…
President Barack Obama today formally nominated his chief of staff Jacob ‘Jack’ Lew as Treasury Secretary and joked that he had considered abandoning the nomination after learning of his illegible signature. The president was responding to criticism of Lew’s scrawl which has been compared to a spring or a curly French fry – and how if it is not changed could become an international embarrassment as the Treasury Secretary’s signature always graces the dollar bill.
‘Jack assures me that he is going to work to make at least one letter legible in order not to debase our currency should he be confirmed as secretary of the Treasury,’ Obama said, naming Lew as the man he wants to succeed Timothy Geithner.
Lew, 57, ‘has my complete trust’, Obama said, arguing that the former White House budget director was the best man to help stabilize the US economy, not least because he had helped negotiate bipartisan deals in the 1980s. Visit DailyMail to continue reading,..

Rupert Murdoch goes to war with environmentalists on Twitter as he claims fossil fuels ‘are making the world greener’…
Rupert Murdoch has taken to Twitter to attack environmentalists claiming that rising levels of carbon dioxide from fossil fuels have been good for the planet. The media mogul based his statements on an article which reported that 30 years of satellite images have shown that the Earth is actually getting greener.
Murdoch, a frequent and outspoken critic of renewable energy, tweeted today: ‘World growing greener with increased carbon. Thirty years of satellite evidence. Forests growing faster and thicker.’
He then referenced an article by Matt Ridley in the Wall Street Journal on January 5. Earlier in the day, the tycoon had posted: ‘Why not switch from useless renewable energy investments to real job creating infrastructure projects. Many great possibilities waiting.’
The WSJ article contends that over 30 years, the world has become a greener place going against the arguments of environmentalists that our planet is at risk from deforestation harming our fragile ecosystem. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Kim Kardashian flaunts her pregnancy curves in sheer top, lacy bra and skin-tight pencil skirt…
It already seems clear who is the boss of celebrity couple Kimye. For while her beau was out searching for gifts to shower her with, Kim Kardashian was flaunting her pregnancy body at an event in Calgary, Alberta on Friday.
The reality television star was not holding back in her outfit choice as she hosted the Cowboy’s Iced event at a nightclub in the city. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star wore a knee high skirt, skimpy black blouse and sheer top as she towed the line between racy and conservative.
And she perhaps leaned closer to the former, as her lacy black bra was clearly visible through her top. Kim is believed to be 12 weeks into her pregnancy. But the star nonetheless opted for towering black stilettos to top off her ensemble.
Of course people would still be none the wiser about her pregnancy if it was not for Kanye West, who recently made the shock announcement Kim was his ‘baby mama’ live on stage. But he is nothing if not considerate, as he was gift hunting for his lady in New York while Kim made her promotional appearance. Kanye was spotted looking for a gift in posh shops in New York City – first at Kirna Zabete and then Louis Vuitton. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Rapper Tyga talks love, gambling and career…
Biracial rapper Tyga promoted his “187” single featuring Rick Ross on Big Boy neighborhood recently and revealed that there’s meaning behind the song title (e.g. he’s murdering the game).
He also said he hopes to work with Chris Brown on a new mixtape at some point: “Whenever we stop driving Lambos and posting pictures on Instagram, maybe we could finish it.”
He talked about his love for his girlfriend Blac Chyna with whom he recently had a baby boy. When asked who said “I love you” first or if sings songs to her, he said he isn’t that type of dude.
He did speak on what they enjoy doing in their free time: “We got a real gangsta relationship. Ya’ll not gonna see us doing no crazy, corny stuff. We go to the strip club together, do stuff like that.”
Big tried his hardest to get him to show his sensitive side but it didn’t work. And if he had to chose between saving Nicki Minaj or Drake from drowning and there was only room for one on a life raft, he said he’d save Nicki. And between Drake and Lil’ Wayne, he said “I’d extend both hands.” Then he admitted, he’d save Wayne.
He also talked about his love of roulette and revealed that though he’s not a big gambler, he’s had nights where he’s lost at least $40,000.

Police frenzy sparked after one of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s children ‘accidentally presses panic button’…
At least they’re prepared for the slightest hint of trouble. One of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s kids accidentally pushed a ‘panic alarm’ inside their house last night that prompted a Herculean response from the LAPD, according to TMZ. Police cars AND a helicopter were sent to the family’s Los Feliz home at 9pm after an alarm went off.
TMZ’s sources say the police were told it was a huge mistake when they arrived at the compound in the trendy east hills, and informed by a nanny that one of the children pressed the alarm by mistake. Brad and Angelina weren’t at home but were informed about the false alarm by the nanny.
The family have just returned from Donna Karan’s home in Turks and Caicos where they spent the holidays with their families, and all those children. But it seems the family may not be taking care of Maddox, Shiloh, Knox, Vivienne, Pax and Zahara alone.
Architectural Digest editor-at-large Jeffrey Slonim posted on his blog: ‘At lunch on a small island three away from Parrot Cay. A woman said she’d heard from a local that [Pitt and Jolie] were in town with two nannies per child. Count ’em, 12 nannies!’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

La Toya and Prince Jackson look baffled surrounded by German soldiers at a charity dinner…
Watch out, the Jacksons have headed to Europe. And on the way La Toya and Prince Michael Jr., decided to stop in on a German charity dinner. Surrounded by men wearing strange suits La Toya, 56, looked slightly bemused as she clutched onto a rather dapper Prince.
Although it is unknown exactly why the pair are on a whistlestop tour of Europe, they made sure they were going to do their bit for charity. Stopping off at the Jummimueues Charity Gala the pair looked suitably dashing as they posed up with strangers. La Toya wore a crisp white suit with sparkling earrings and a leaf motif while Prince, 15, kept it chic in a leather suit.
With tousled waves and bright cherry red lipstick, La Toya also accessorized with a glistening clutch, shimmering brooch and chandelier earrings. It was exactly the same outfit the star wore to Donny and Marie – Christmas in Los Angele, a month earlier where many thought she had simply forgotten her blouse – this deliberate outfit choice at the gala dinner showed it is all part of a bigger plan.

Sofia Vergara shops for handbags with fiancé Nick Loeb after New Year’s bust up…
Witnessing your fiancé having a fight with an ex isn’t the best way to welcome in a new year, but Sofia Vergara seemed to be getting over the bust up in the old fashion way. With a bit of retail therapy. Joining her on a shopping trip in Miami was her guilty partner Nick Loeb, who is no doubt hoping to make amends after his ungentlemanly behavior which left Sofia baring more of her ample curves than she was hoping.
Dressed for the weather, the actress wore a vibrant palm leaf-print maxi skirt and black vest top with some gold bracelets and sunglasses. Nick opted for a similarly casual look in a faded blue polo shirt and grey chinos. Clearly Sofia was looking for an oversize handbag as she tried and tested a few large leather ones in red, black and cream, that all featured some stud detail.
On New Year’s Eve she and her fiancé Nick Loeb were involved in a scuffle at a Miami club that left Sofia exposed and knocked to the ground. Nick was apparently on edge already because he was jealous of the club owner and host of the party, Chris Paciello, who dated Sofia in the nineties. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

They might have only been dating for a few months, but it seems that Heidi Klum‘s new man Martin Kristen is already part of the family. The bodyguard-turned-boyfriend seemed happy to play dad as he took Heidi’s children to the gym class on Saturday before hitting the shops.
Clearly the doting boyfriend, Martin seemed completely relaxed with the little ones as he ferried them inside, proving that he’s becoming a permanent family fixture. Clutching some juice boxes for the kids, while Heidi held an apple, he seemed happy in his new role as surrogate dad.
Later in the day, the couple ran some errands together, stopping by Whole Foods in the posh Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, looking like they were stocking up for winter.

Make-up free and dishevelled Eva Mendes looks downcast after spending New Year’s Eve apart from her famous beau!
Eva Mendes‘ slightly disheveled and definitely distracted appearance on Saturday could be to do with her missing her man. The actress, who is dating heart throb Ryan Gosling, has not seen him since before the New Year, according to reports, because of work commitments.
She was seen going for a hike on NYE with her dog and then was spotted in Downtown Los Angeles staring intently at her phone and looking a bit glum. Mendes was also not her usual stylish self – perhaps missing Gosling, 32, was the reason. The 38-year-old star was wearing baggy pajama-like pants with a rose pattern and a black long-sleeved polo neck.
She teamed the get-up with with flat ankle boots and her face was make-up free. Her long brunette hair was loose and a bit flyaway. As previously mentioned Mendes and Gosling – who fell in love of the set of the upcoming gritty drama The Place Beyond the Pines – have been forced to spend time apart due to their busy film schedules. The Training Day actress has been spotted numerous times over the past week out and about without her boyfriend. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Chelsee Healey has ANOTHER fashion fail in thigh high leather boots on a night out…
Every time biracial actress Chelsee Healey seems to pull herself back from the brink of a fashion fiasco, she steps out in another outfit fit for the ‘What were you thinking?’ pages. And it was no different on Saturday night, for the actress stepped out in some Pretty Woman style leather boots.
Bare-legged and wearing some super tight hotpants, Chelsee definitely channeled Julia Roberts’ character Vivian Ward – a pre-Rodeo Drive makeover Vivian that is. But that’s not to say the entire outfit was a fail.
The shaggy fur jumper tucked into her gold baroque shorts would have looked far more chic if paired with some opaque tights and some some simple court shoes.
However, the overload of metallic accessories – giant earrings and envelope clutch bag – again reduced the elegance in what could have been a stylish outfit. Chelsee was on a night out with X Factor judge Tulisa having enjoyed some drinks at a hotel before heading off to the Circle nightclub. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Alexandra Burke wears a snakeskin swimsuit whilst lounging round the pool with friends in Miami…
Another day another swimsuit for multiracial singer Alexandra Burke who opted for animal print on Saturday in Miami. Lying on a sun lounger, the singer chose a cutaway style rather than a bikini which complemented her skin tone and her color to perfection.
And looking every bit the the urban artist, Alex finished off her look with some chunky heart-shaped earrings and a thin gold necklace.
London girl through and through, her snack of choice was some toast washed down by a traditional cup of tea that she enjoyed with her friends round the hotel pool. But after a while the hot temperature proved too much, so the 24-year old went for a dip. Carefully easing herself into the water, Alex seemed to be taking her time to adjust to the colder temperature.
For the last few days, the former X Factor winner has been soaking up the sun on the beach. She showed off her ultra-toned figure as she played on the beach with pals, even taking to a paddle-board to demonstrate her obvious athleticism. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

A fan caught glimpse of the singer and X-Factor UK judge and tweeted the friendly snap, writing: ‘This looks like an episode of Shameless.’
Wearing a casual outfit of a simple T-shirt and pink cardigan Tulisa looks comfortable as she poses up next to Danny. There was a rocky start to the couple’s relationship after Danny’s ex-girlfriend Stephanie Ward, the mother of his one-year-old daughter, branded Tulisa a ‘home-wrecker’ and claimed she was pregnant with her second child with Danny.
But the father of one maintained that he broke up with his ex weeks earlier, and has told friends he is confident that he can make his relationship with Tulisa go the distance. In a scathing eight-page document released by the singer’s lawyers, she denied she knew Stephanie was pregnant and slammed the idea that she ‘stole’ the footballer from her.

Make-up free Kim Kardashian shows off the beginnings of a bump as she indulges her cravings with a caramel apple…
She might be pregnant but Kim Kardashian obviously sees no need to relax her busy schedule. The busy reality star flew into Miami on Sunday, and announced plans to head off on a promotional tour to the Ivory Coast.
The star wore oversized glasses and went make-up free as she arrived at the airport. Kim’s oversized pink shirt skimmed what appeared to be the start of a baby bump, with Kim teaming it with a white blazer, loose brown pants and nude heels.
Earlier on Saturday, Kim tweeted that she was enjoying a bit of sweets, something which her celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson may not approve of.
‘Apple pie caramel apple from the Rockie Mountain Chocolate Factory. Oldie but gooooooodie!!!!’ she wrote.
The slip in healthy eating as a big departure for Kim, who hired Anderson based on her latest workout venture, the Pregnancy Project, and her expertise with helping women stay on track.
Instead of celebrating the holiday of Armenian Christmas with her family, Kim has been visiting friends in the beach city, including Real Housewives of Miami star Larsa Pippen. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Madonna looks steadier on her skis as she takes to the slopes…but it’s Mercy who steals the show…
Her skiing holiday didn’t get off to the best of starts as she took a tumble or two.
But it looks like Madonna finally got into the swing of things as she took to the slopes in Gstaad, Switzerland once again, but this time accompanied by an instructor. Meanwhile her daughters Lourdes and Mercy looked far more confident as they effortlessly glided along.
The 54-year-old star has been celebrating the start of the year with a family skiing holiday, accompanied by her Brazilian toy boy Brahim Zaibat. While the Like A Virgin singer started off her week on a bad foot – she spent most of her time on her bum- she seemed steadier the longer she spent on the slopes. Almost unrecognizable in an all-black ski suit, Madonna covered the majority of her face with a balaclava and wore a helmet.
As she took to the slopes with her instructor, who dressed all in blue, the usually confident star looked rather cautious. It’s thought the instructor is Ernest Marmet, who was recommended to her by none other than designer Valentino. While the Queen of pop was treated to a one-on-one lesson, her youngest children Mercy and David also had lessons. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Tommy Mottola: ‘I was the reason Mariah Carey succeeded!’
Former head of Sony Music and Mariah Carey‘s controversial first husband, Tommy Mottola, has hit-back at claims he was a controlling tyrant during their marriage, writing in his upcoming memoir that the singer should be grateful as he made her a star.
Carey has previously described her four year marriage to Mottola, the record executive who first signed her, as a ‘private hell’ and said the music supremo, 20 years her senior, abused her ‘mentally and emotionally’.
The singer, now one of the best selling music artists of all time, married the record company boss at the age of 23. She said he was jealous and overpowering and she ‘longed for someone to kidnap’ her from the unhappy marriage which lasted from 1993 to 1997.
But the former head of Sony hit backs in his upcoming memoir ‘Hitmaker’ saying he may have seemed ‘controlling’ but that was how he made Carey a star, according to the New York Post. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Pregnant Kim Kardashian steps out for dinner in an electric blue dress with some very revealing cut-outs…
One thing Kim Kardashian doesn’t need to draw attention to his her infamous curves, particularly as all eyes are already on her due to her pregnancy. But that, of course, didn’t stop the TV star from causing a stir when she stepped out for a spot of dinner in Miami on Sunday night.
Clearly keen to make the most of the time she has left to put those famous curves on display, Kim opted for a bold blue strapless dress with strategically placed cut-outs. The peekaboo cut revealed both her cleavage and a hint of her bump, which was embellished with spiky silver jewels.
Kim finished off her look with pointy heels and a small black jacket resting over her shoulders to keep her from the chill and cover the strapless frock. She wore her dark locks piled up high on her head in a bun, while she carried her petite clutch bag in her hand.
After finishing her meal at the Miami Beach restaurant Kim happily spoke to and posed with fans who were waiting for her as she left. The 32-year-old struck a pose pouting as she was flanked by two females, ecstatic to have bumped into her during their evening out. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Naomi Campbell forced to wear ballet pumps to party after she’s injured in Paris mugging…
As one of Britain’s most iconic fashion models she is used to strutting down the runway in high heels. But, Naomi Campbell stepped out in some very unlikely footwear as she put her best dress on for a glamorous party on Sunday evening.
The 42-year-old looked superb during the night out as she attended the NBC Universal 2013 TCA Winter Press Tour Party. However, instead of wearing a pair of her trademark high heels she sported some flat shoes to make her night out a little easier.
Naomi, who was at The Langham Huntington Hotel and Spa in Pasadena, California, looked lovely in her plunging neckline dress as she hung out with fellow models Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha. Her good friend and former male model Nigel Barker also joined the group as they made a very stylish pack. Although Miss Campbell’s footwear may have let down her outfit,
it is most likely she was forced to wear the flats due to her recent injury. Naomi was left in a wheelchair after thieves attempted to snatch her handbag as she sat in a limousine in central Paris, French in November 2012. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Charlize Theron has some competition in the style stakes as son Jackson rocks mini UGG boots…
She’s widely considered to be one of the most stylish actresses in Hollywood, never afraid to push the boat out when it comes to experimenting with the latest fashions. But it seems Charlize Theron may have some competition in the style stakes from someone very close to home – her son Jackson.
The 37-year-old actress’ adopted son looked super trendy as he rocked some mini UGG boots as his mother carried him through Los Angeles’ LAX airport on Sunday. Jackson teamed his UGGs, which retail for around £110, with a pair of stripe-trimmed pants and a knitted black, white and red cardigan.
The gorgeous little boy, who was adopted by Charlize back in May 2012, seemed entirely unfazed by the attention he and his famous mother were receiving as they touched down in LA after flying in following a two week holiday in the south of France.
Charlize, meanwhile, showed off her slender figure in a pair of skinny, bright blue jeans, teamed with a loose-fitting navy cardigan and blue and grey striped scarf. The Mad Max actress finished off her outfit with a huge pair of sunglasses, and kept her short hair hidden beneath a quirky grey hat. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Olympic Gymnast Louis Smith: ‘I’d like to start my own range…’
He is the Olympic gymnast and King of the Strictly dance floor known for his dapper style and charming looks. So it comes as no surprise that fashion-forward Louis Smith wants to channel his signature suited-and-booted look into his own fashion line.
‘I have a lot of clothes in my head that I’d like to wear, but that I don’t see out there, so I’m really interested about trying to get into fashion and perhaps starting my own range,’ he said.
Speaking in a London College of Fashion film promoting London Collections: Men showcase, he discussed his eclectic style.
He said: ‘Men’s fashion is all over the place and that’s the beauty of it, it’s not just following one track and I like to dip my toes in all the different puddles of fashion.’
While we are most accustomed to seeing the silver medalist in his Lycra (and since Strictly, more than a sprinkling of sequins), Louis makes it clear that he will not be filling his clothing rails with sportswear.
‘You’ve got to look fresh in a suit, you’ve got to be able to busy it out,’he said. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Pregnant Kim Kardashian covers her bump with a loose cardigan as she makes her way to bikini shoot…
She’s been doing little to conceal her baby bump after announcing her exciting pregnancy news earlier this month. But Kim Kardashian came over uncharacteristically shy as she made her way down to Miami Beach in Florida on Sunday for a bikini shoot.
Kim gave just a hint of her white bikini as she covered up in a loose-fitting knitted cardigan while preparing for the shoot. The 32-year-old reality star did her best to keep her pregnancy curves under wraps in the ensemble, keeping the knitwear pulled tight around her while strolling on the sand to the perfect shoot spot.
Kim was flanked by an army of cameramen, hair and make-up artists, on hand to ensure she looked flawless for the shoot. However, despite her entourage of assistants, Kim cut something of a lonely figure as she made her way along the beach. Kim’s glum appearance could be down to the fact that there was no sign of her baby daddy Kanye West on the shoot, as the rapper is thought to still be in New York.
But Kim ensured she was keeping in touch with her beau, and was seen clutching her mobile phone and apparently messaging as she walked along. However, Kim kept herself entertained when she spotted a photographer who had fallen asleep on the beach when he was meant to be snapping shots of the star at work.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West ‘turn down Brangelina-style $3m offer for first pictures of their baby’…
For Kim Kardashian making her private life public is her very reason for stardom. But it seems motherhood may have already begun to have an effect on the reality star, who is in the early stages of pregnancy. Kim, 32, and her boyfriend Kanye West are said to have turned down a huge $3 million offer for the first exclusive photos of their yet to be born child.
A source told website TMZ that the couple have been ‘flooded’ with lucrative offers from media outlets desperate to be the first to publish the baby pictures. The huge $3 million offer compares to Brangelina’s $4.1 million payout following the birth of their first child Shiloh in 2006. Although that was dwarfed by the $14 million they received after the birth of the twins. The couple donated the payments to a charitable trust they had set up.
The news of Kim’s decision is all the more surprising as unlike other more private stars she has previously shown no interest in hiding any facet of her life from public view. But perhaps her boyfriend is the one behind the move. Rapper Kanye has previously been reported to be uncomfortable with the way Kim lives, with her reality shows, paparazzi attention and self-publicity on her blog combining to put every aspect of her life under constant public scrutiny.

Heidi Klum covers Marie Claire’s February 2013 issue and talks experimenting in the bedroom: ‘If you are wild and crazy, bring it on…’
Former super-model Heidi Klum has ruled out becoming a ‘cougar’ – while admitting she likes to experiment in bed. The fashion mogul, who split from husband Seal, a year ago, said she sees the attraction in an older woman dating a younger man. But the 39-year-old said it wasn’t for her.
‘I can understand why a woman finds a young man attractive, because the truth is that when men get older, their shape changes,’ Klum said.
‘Younger men train more, and when the clothes come off, it is nice to look at a sexy, ripped body. But I am realistic. I’m turning 40 next year. ‘I don’t think I could deal with waking up next to a 25-year-old.’
Klum, who is dating her bodyguard Martin Kirsten, said she believes every woman should be a ‘little devil’ sometime in the bedroom.
‘It’s good to make an effort to dress up sometimes – to do things outside of the norm,’ she tells U.S. Marie Claire in its February issue. ‘Some people are more experimental in bed and others are more boring. If you are wild and crazy, bring it on so the other person is well aware that you have little devil horns that come out every once in a while.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Heidi Klum: ‘When you have a good body, photographers will say, “Let’s take this off”. You have to be strong at saying no!’
Following Kate Moss’s revelations that she suffered a near nervous breakdown as a teenager after being pushed into posing topless, another top model has expressed her own concerns.
Supermodel Heidi Klum may have made a name for herself by posing half naked on the cover of Sports Illustrated naked on the cover of GQ and as a lingerie-clad Victoria’s Secret Angel.
But she insists young models should say no to posing nude. Speaking to Ocean Drive in their 20th anniversary issue, the 39-year-old revealed how over the years she has learned to toe the line between tasteful and obscene at a very young age and says young girls have to remain strong.
She said: ‘When you have a good body, photographers will often be like, “Yeah, let’s take this off, and why don’t we lose this too, and you can quickly end up not wearing much clothing. You have to be careful and strong at saying no, especially when you’re younger and on your own. Not everyone is cool and has your best interest [at heart].’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

The former Jenny Craig spokeswoman, who kept her tiny denim mini-skirt on for the candid snap, appeared to be enjoying her sandy break from the mini-tour. Mariah has received lackluster reviews for her shows, which critics have labeled ‘awkward,’ ‘unrehearsed,’ and ‘uneven.’ For her concert at the Gold Coast Convention, Mariah arrived late and stopped the music at one point due to technical problems, according to the Toronto Sun.
‘I’m not asking for the moon and the stars,’ Carey said onstage. ‘There’s a lot of sound problems going on here. I don’t know if it’s me or you, or something in the air, but can we fix it?’
The Grammy winner with the five-octave vocal range will soon return to the set of the 12th season of American Idol, which premieres January 16, alongside judges Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

I’ve been asked for the last 12 years to do television,’ Naomi revealed, adding that what she liked about this project ‘was the whole thing about mentoring. ‘I’ve been working 26 years, and I do feel like I have something to share.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Angelina Jolie‘s daughter Zahara celebrates 8th birthday…
Zahara Marley Jolie-Pitt turned 8 years old on January 8, 2013. The adopted daughter of Hollywood’s sought after actors Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt was born and adopted in Ethiopia, Africa at 6 months old.
Of the adoption, Sosina Yeman, a worker at the social affairs office in Awasa, said: “She was such a beautiful thing. As soon as I saw her I thought about adopting her. When I came back to the office the next day, she had already been taken. I have been thinking about her ever since, but I suppose I could have never offered her the life she will have now.”
Zahara was mistakenly believed to be infected with the AIDS virus but future testing proved that she was in fact not afflicted and after the trip back to the United States, she was hospitalized/diagnosed for dehydration and malnutrition and not AIDS.
“Both Angelina and Brad held her and looked lovely with her. They looked like a happy family, like any other couple that comes and visits. Brad looked very comfortable holing the baby, like a proud father.”
“We are always sad when the children leave because they are our children and we love them but I know she will be going to a very good place.”– Sister Lete (Zahara’s caregiver in the orphanage) on Zahara’s new parents and her feelings once Zahara was gone.
“Those late nights are so fun when one of them’s up or those mornings when they get up and make pancakes or something. That’s what it’s about.”– Brad on those special moments that make the craziness worth every second.
“Zahara’s got an extraordinary voice and is just so elegant and well spoken.”Angelina on her first daughter.

Khloe Kardashian puts her used bras and sexy negligees up for sale on eBay…for charity!
Khloe Kardashian launched an eBay store with husband Lamar Odom in the summer. And it seems that the reality star may now be getting a tad carried away with the website and its addictive nature. The 28-year-old has started putting items from the more intimate section of her wardrobe up for sale – including her underwear and sexy negligees.
One of the sports bras Khloe is selling is advertised as ‘pre-owned’, and on Tuesday had raked in 13 bids from happy shoppers hoping to get their mitts on the workout wear Khloe has been sweating in. Unfortunately, the brunette’s silky slips weren’t garnering quite as much attention on the site.
And perhaps Lamar will be sad to see the saucier items in Khloe’s wardrobe shipped off to the highest bidder. But fortunately, it’s all for a good cause. A portion of the proceeds from sales of Khloe’s items will go to Lamar’s charity Cathy’s Kids, which benefits underprivileged children living in the inner cities of New York and Los Angeles.

Boston Celtics Kevin Garnett to NY Knicks Carmelo Anthony: ‘Your wife tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios!’
A raunchy reference to Honey Nut Cheerios left basketball star Carmelo Anthony anything but happy and healthy, and fueled his rage during a fight on the court, it was revealed today. Tempers flared between the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett during their game on Monday.

BlackSportsOnline.com reported that Garnett told Anthony, ‘you’re wife tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios,’ citing sources that were present for the game.
After a team practice yesterday, Anthony would not say what it was that set him off. He told the New York Post: ‘There’s certain things that you just don’t say to men, another man. I felt like we crossed the line.’
A friend of Anthony’s added that the Knicks star ‘really, really had a reason’ and took a jab at Garnett, saying: ‘KG must’ve never gotten hugged [as a child], but Melo’s OK now.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Bradley Cooper reveals his desire for everlasting love like his parents… days after he splits from Zoe Saldana…
He was named 2011’s Sexiest Man Alive, has well and truly cemented his status as an A-list actor and has dated some of Hollywood’s most beautiful women.

Admitting he is a ‘romantic’ at heart, the Silver Linings Playbook star explained he wants to follow in the footsteps of his beloved parents and grandparents, and meet the woman of his dreams to spend the rest of his life with.
He told MailOnline: ‘I would say I am a romantic, for sure. I think most guys are deep down. I look at my parents, who have been married happily since 1963, and my Grandparents are the same. What guy wouldn’t want that?’
‘I think the thought of a traditional family home is awesome. Traditional roles are becoming a thing of the past, but I think there is something still really charming about them.’

Kim Kardashian is amused by Maude Apatow’s eerily accurate impression of her…
Director Judd Apatow’s eldest daughter Maude could soon be lighting up the Saturday Night Live stage if her eerily good impression of the Kardashian sisters is anything to go by. In a deleted scene from This Is 40, the 15-year-old accurately mimics Khloe, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian.
In the clip, Maude’s character Sadie video chats with a male friend – played by Ryan Lee – about the Kardashians. And she unleashes such a brilliant wrap about the three sisters that it’s amazing the scene was cut. One fan, is 32-year-old Kim herself who tweeted: ‘Truuuue’ with a link to the video on her Celebuzz blog with the title ‘This is so funny!’
She wrote: ‘This is so funny!! It’s a deleted scene from the movie This is 40 and Maude Apatow does impressions of Khloe, Kourtney and me!! She’s actually really good, lol! Xo’
According to her character, Khloe is the smartest out of all of them, but her nasally baby voice tends to get on her nerves… especially when she’s talking to husband Lamar Odom. Kourtney seems the most responsible, but the whole ‘Scott thing is hard. Because she loves him, but he’s clearly out of control.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

It has been far from plain sailing in recent months. But relations between Gabriel Aubry and Halle Berry seemed to have thawed somewhat after both were spotted spending time with their daughter Nahla in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Matthew McConaughey looks healthier as he returns to the red carpet for Critics’ Choice Movie Awards…
He dropped a staggering 40lbs for his role in Dallas Buyers Club and it seems Matthew McConaughey is steadily recovering from his extreme weight loss. The 43-year-old actor stepped out for the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards on Thursday looking more like his former self than he has in months.
The Magic Mike star, nominated for Best Supporting Actor, gave a gracious smile as he walked the red carpet in a slim-fitting tuxedo and polka dot bow tie. While his cheeks remain hollow, the actor has finished filming his role as HIV victim Ron Woodroof for the forthcoming drama Dallas Buyers Club.
That has enabled him to inch closer to his former weight, and Matthew revealed last week he was five pounds away from his target weight after adding 25lbs to his lowest weight – a frighteningly thin 135lbs. The actor lost the Best Supporting Actor nomination on Thursday night to Philip Seymour Hoffman (The Master).
But the new father, whose wife Camila Alves gave birth to their third child Livingston on December 28, seemed happy to be among the list of nominees, and as of late, more concerned about getting back to top health.
When asked if he missed his bulkier frame, Matthew recently told People: ‘I have less [physical] leverage, but my mind is way sharper… You know, I love to wrestle. It’s a good time to wrestle me now.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Kim Kardashian‘s gaping blouse struggles to contain her curves on Paris date with Kanye West…
She is in the early stages of her pregnancy, thought to be around the three month mark. And it seems that Kim Kardashian‘s blossoming figure is causing havoc on her designer wardrobe. The 32-year-old reality star stepped out in a pretty ruffled blouse as she and Kanye West went to a meeting at designer Stephane Rolland’s showroom in Paris on Friday.
But the white attire appeared to struggle to contain the reality star’s pregnancy curves, the buttons gaping around Kim’s bust area. Despite her outfit being a little on the small side, Kim otherwise looked chic in her ensemble which also consisted of a matching white miniskirt, a black overcoat and black leather stilettos.
She accessorized with fuzzy mittens and wore her raven hair out in a straight style. Meanwhile, Kanye, who doted over his ladylove, also kept warm in a beige lapel-less overcoat, which he wore over a pair of black pants and a denim shirt. The couple appeared to be a little on the tired side, with pregnant Kim looking especially fatigued. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

No prenup for Janet Jackson as boyfriend Wissam Al Mana prepare to tie the knot!
MICHAEL JACKSON’S sister Janet did not put off her New Year’s Eve wedding because of cold feet but because of cold cash, a friend has revealed. The singer was due to marry Arab multi-billionaire Wissam Al Mana but their lawyers could not organise the prenuptial agreement in time.

He is also a major shareholder in Saks Fifth Avenue stores in Dubai, Doha, Bahrain and Kuwait.

Kardashian sisters are sued for ‘stealing name’ of $6m cosmetics line from make-up artist…
It looked like they were onto yet another money-spinning winner when they launched their own cosmetics line. But it looks like the Kardashian Klan could be left with an expensive legal bill after they were sued for allegedly stealing the name for Khroma Beauty, for which they are guaranteed to make up to $6.2 million.
Make-up artist Lee Tillett is seeking $10m in damages from the sisters and Boldface Group Inc, which markets their line. She claims it infringes on her Kroma Make-up line, which she founded back in 2004.
Florida native Miss Tillett told the Orlando Sentinel: ‘I developed the Kroma line myself, built my business through my own hard work, and took the legal steps necessary to protect it. ‘And yet I have now been forced into legal battle with the Kardashians simply because they have decided to take something that doesn’t belong to them.’ Visit DailyMail to continue reading…

Oscar 2013 nominations: Lincoln leads with 12 nominations…
Daniel Day-Lewis looks set for Oscar success after being nominated for an Academy Award for his role in Lincoln. A win would make it a hat-trick of best actor Oscar wins for the British-born star, who has already taken home Oscars for My Left Foot in 1989 and There Will Be Blood in 2007.
But the actor will face strong competition from Denzel Washington for Flight, Hugh Jackman for Les Miserables, Bradley Cooper for Silver Linings Playbook and Joaquin Phoenix for The Master. On the female front, Naomi Watts is up for The Impossible – the only British-born actress in this category – Jessica Chastain for Zero Dark Thirty, Jennifer Lawrence for Silver Linings Playbook, Emmanuelle Riva for Amour and Quvenzhané Wallis for Beasts of the Southern Wild.
British actors didn’t get a look in in either of the supporting acting categories – while Judi Dench had been tipped for a nomination for Skyfall and Maggie Smith for Quartet, neither appeared as the nominations were announced.
Instead, Sally Field has been nominated for her role in Lincoln, but is up against Anne Hathaway for Les Miserables, Jacki Weaver for Silver Linings Playbook, Helen Hunt for The Sessions and Amy Adams for The Master. Visit DailyMail to continue reading…
