• Friday Showbiz Round-Up!

    Hello VIPs! We’ve made it to the end of the week. For some of the following celebrities, it’s probably a relief so they can unwind after providing us with such great entertainment for the week.

    It wasn’t a good date night for Ricky Rayment and Jessica Wright as they got into a car crash. The crash happened when they were travelling back to essex from London in a taxi when a car smashed into the side of their vehicle. Ricky was treated for a broken finger and bruises whilst Jessica was treated for back pain. Thankfully it wasn’t too serious and here’s hoping they have a speedy recovery!


    In more TOWIE news, the show has been commissioned for a further 2 seasons. Apparently ITV bosses are extremely impressed with how well the show is doing and don’t want to let go of the high ratings! A brand new series of the show will return in February. If it means more sparkly dresses like Sam Faiers has, then give us all the TOWIE in the world!

    Made in Chelsea star Lucy Watson has stripped down for a stunning shoot for PETA’s ‘I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur’ campaign. She has also blasted co-star Millie Mackintosh for wearing fur but does understand it’s her ‘own decision’. Nonetheless, Lucy’s love for animals is displayed loud and clear!

    It has been an intense couple of months for Lea Michele but she looks fresh and well-rested on the cover of Teen Vogue. The interview is obviously centred around the death of her boyfriend Cory Monteith, in which she states that he made her feel like she could reach for the stars and that he’s watching over her- And he most certainly is!

    Lea Michele

    We were all left in shock when Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr announced their split last year but it seems like Orlando has swiftly moved on! He was seen hanging out in Los Angeles with French actress, Nora Arnezeder. They even whisked away together on a motorbike after their bar date. Who said romance is dead?

    Orlando Bloom

    Beyonce is on a roll, especially following that steamy performance with husband Jay Z at the Grammys! Now Beyonce is letting fans into her life even more with intimate snaps of herself and Blue Ivy. You can tell by the pictures that even though she is passionate about her career, being a mum is first and foremost to her.


    Justin Bieber’s dad has now made a surprising appearance in his life and it is still in question whether he is a bad influence on him or not. He did however post an adorable picture of Justin sleeping next to his 4 year old brother. He captioned the picture- ‘Safe and sound #homesweethome. It seems like Justin needs a good couple weeks of sleep after all the trouble he’s gotten himself into!

    Ahh celebrities! Love them or loathe them- you have to admit they provide us with jaw-dropping entertainment. Tweet @zoegriffin your favourite news stories of the week.

    Video Picks Of The Week – Grammy Awards 2014 winners


    This week us VIP’s are loving the great music tracks by a few Grammy Award winners.  Pharrell, Daft Punk, Lorde, Alicia Keys and more. Take a look at our pick of our favourite Grammy winners this week below.

    Daft Punk Feat Pharrell – Get Lucky (Record of the year) 

    It’s not surprising that this song won record of the year considering the amount we’ve heard it in the last few months. Despite jointly winning this prestigious award the main talking point of the night was Pharrell’s quirky hat. Pharrell’s fashion choice was so popular it has its own twitter account, take a look here - the ‘hat’ has over 18,000 followers.

    Lorde – Royals (Song of the year)

    Newbie Ella Yelich O’Connor (AKA Lorde) won her first Grammy for song of the year. The New Zealand native looked shocked and happy to have won and she’s only 17 years old – WOW! Take a look at Lorde’s Grammy performance of Royals below.

    Alicia Keys – Girl on Fire (Best RnB album) 

    This girl is on fire! Alicia was looking hot on the red carpet in this cobalt blue dress. Alicia deservingly picked up the award for best RnB album of the year, beating off competition from smooth operator John Legend. Take a look at her video for Girl on Fire below.

    Beyonce Featuring Jay Z – Drunk Love

    We can’t mention the Grammys without mentioning our favourite performance of the night from power couple Jay Z and Beyonce. Take a look at their racy performance of Drunk Love below.

  • Tuesday Showbiz Round-Up!

    Hello VIPs! Hope you’re well! Make sure to start your day off with some juicy showbiz gossip!

    Harry Styles has added two more tattoos to his already large collection. The first is an etching that says ‘Silver Spoon’ which can be seen on his elbow and the other is the Holy Bible on his forearm. Wonder if his rumoured girlfriend Kendall Jenner likes them?

    Harry Styles

    Katherine Jenkins has decided to undergo an image overhaul by dying her hair darker. She tweeted the photo of her new hair with the caption ‘Going back to my roots…Musically!’ This comes in light of a renewal of her relationship with Decca Records and her new album which will be released in the Autumn.

    Katherine Jenkins

    Cheryl Cole seemed to have a messy night with Kimberly Walsh and Nicola Roberts as she shared a snap of herself on Instagram with the caption- ‘the awkward moment when your friends send you pictures from last night and you can’t even remember #why #messy’. Oh we can sympathise Cheryl!

    Cheryl Cole

    Victoria Beckham will definitely not be reuniting with the Spice Girls again! The last time the famous girl group got together was during the London 2012 Olympics and whilst she said that was incredible honour, she also mentioned knowing when your time was over.

    Victoria Beckham

    Kelly Clarkson has confirmed she is having a baby girl! Kelly announced her pregnancy back in November and she and her husband Brandon Blackstock are overjoyed at the news. Kelly even joked that only a girl could cause that much drama with her morning sickness!

    Kelly Clarkson

    Kourtney Kardashian has put her house up for sale. This is even more surprising considering she just finished decorating it! Scott Disick described their house as ‘Alice in Wonderland meets Beetlejuice’. They are reportedly moving out due to a need of extra space. That house would be big enough for us Kourtney!

    Kourtney Kardashian

    Everybody should cancel their plans for Sunday! Beyonce and Jay-Z will perform live at the Grammy Awards! Hopefully there won’t be a power shortage after their performance!


    She had one of the catchiest tunes of 2011 with Call Me Maybe and now Carly Rae Jepsen is playing Cinderella on Broadway! She gave Good Morning America a behind the scenes tour of the play and even managed to bring along the famous glass slippers!

  • Celebrity couple videos 2013

    This year celebrity couples have been popping up all over the place from Kendal Jenner and Harry Styles (still claiming to be ‘good friends’), to Mila Kunis and  Ashton Kutcher – who keep their relationship very quiet. On the other hand, there are some couples who like to show the world their love and what better way to do this than featuring in a music video together. Here is a list of our top 5 celebrity couple videos of 2013.

    Katy Perry and John Mayer – Just this month John Mayer and Katy Perry showcased their video for Who You Love. It’s very tame compared to some of the other couple videos out this year (see below).

    John Legend and Chrissy Teigen – All of me

    Newlyweds John and Chrissy decided to invite us into their shower this year. Take a look below.

    Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes – Almost is never enough

    Ariana has been a breakout star this year and it looked like she had even bagged herself a pop-star boyfriend. Too bad this couple have already broken-up before the new year has even began. Nevermind, we can still enjoy this beautiful song below.

    Kim Kardashian and Kanye West – Bound 2

    There’s no doubt that Kim post pregnancy body is looking AMAZING. However we don’t really know what to make of this video. We will get back to you once we have gotten over the shock and picked our jaws off the floor. Some things should be kept behind closed doors.

    Jay Z and Beyonce – Drunk Love

    Beyonce is riding high at the moment with her new album at number 1. Her video for Drunk Love is a little exposing (watch it and you’ll see what we mean), but this power couple are a great musical duo!

    What do you think of celebrity couple video? Sweet? or sickening lovefests that no one wants to see? Let us know on Twitter or comment below.

    There was an incredible turn out at last nights BBC’s Sports Personality Awards.

Winners included Andy Murray, Sir Alex Ferguson and Amber Hill amongst many other!

    Rebecca Adlington Sports Personality Awards

    They were this years love story on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, however Amy Willerton and Joey Essex have yet to confirm their romance. However, things are looking great for the young pair as they were pictured the morning after spending the night together at the British Comedy Awards on Thursday. In particular, they were seen waiting for a taxi outside Joey’s flat in Essex. We’re still holding out on the big official announcement!

    Amy Willterton and Joey Essex

    Stunning WAG Danielle O’Hara came out in full force on Saturday night celebrating her 30th at London’s Syon Park! She looked glamorous after having 3 children in a simple black figure hugging dress, complete with smokey eyes and nude lipstick. Her real birthday is actually today and she still has a birthday holiday to Ibiza left to go! Ahh, the life of a jet-setting WAG!

    Danielle O'Hara

    Kendall Jenner has been in London over the weekend and reports have suggested serial womanizer Harry Styles has paid the model a visit at her hotel. The pair have been rumoured to be dating since last month when they were spotted together after enjoying a dinner at a West Hollywood restaurant. They make such a stunning couple!

    Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles

    On the other hand, there’s not much good news for Kendall’s older half sister Khloe Kardashian as she filed for divorce from Lamar Odom. This was bound to happen as she’s been seen without her ring since late November. Even though Khloe still loved Lamar, sources claim she’s unable to stay with someone who won’t reach out for help. Her timing to file for divorce also ensures that she won’t carry the negative energy onto the new year. Good thinking Khloe!

    Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom

    Former High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens celebrated her 25th birthday this week at ‘No Vacancy’- a club in Hollywood. She looked old Hollywood glamorous with a long vintage pink dress and had the perfect accessory on her arm- her gorgeous boyfriend Austin Butler! She’s grown up a lot since her Zac Efron days! Belated happy birthday Vanessa!

    Beyonce is 2013′s top selling female debut with her no notice, self titled visual album. The album has already reached no.1 on iTunes in over 100 countries. An undeniable feat! What did you think of Beyonce’s new album?

    Hello VIPs! Now, you know that Christmas is well and truly here when Mariah Carey dons her sparkliest/ tackiest outfit and belts out ‘All I want for Christmas’ all in the name of the festive spirit. Mimi, as she is sometimes called, performed at New York’s Rockerfeller Centre to celebrate the famous Christmas tree lighting. What do you think of her outfit VIPs? Of course, in true Mariah fashion there was more than one…  I reckon this one right here is my personal fave:

    Meanwhile, back in London, Kim Kardashian look-a-like Georgia Salpa, made ‘famous’ by Celebrity Big Brother showed of  her assets to the fullest effect in a rather daring Agent Provocateur bustier… I suppose she was at the the UK Lingerie Awards after all.

    On a slightly more serious note, the controversial court battle of Nigella Lawson and estranged husband Charles Saatchi takes a turn for the worse as Nigella silences those rumours about her cocaine addiction by admitting that she did in fact take the class A drug, but is not actually addicted… hmm. Domestic Goddess no more it seems…

  • VIP Video Pick: When lip-syncing is allowed

    Usually, we recoil in horror when we see celebs lip-syncing along to our favourite tracks (Beyonce’s national anthem mishap for example – or anyone still remember that Ashlee Simpson moment?). But Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Stephen Merchant and Jimmy Fallon show us on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon that when you’re not a singer, and when you’re game for a laugh – it’s more than ok!

    We adore Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s attempt at Super Bass and think perhaps they’re onto something with this lip-syncing battle malarkey! And don’t even get us started on those dance moves! What do you think? Let us know! Tweet @zoegriffin.
