Kelly Osbourne blames support brace and toilet urges for bloated appearance.
Kelly Osbourne caused a flurry of speculation after her appearance at the 2015 Grammys, where she looked a little curvier than recent photographs have suggested in a figure-hugging black and white dress.
Kelly Osbourne dismisses pregnancy rumours
The 'Fashion Police' host looked seriously hot in a Christian Siriano long-sleeved, fishtail gown on Sunday (February 8th 2015), but it seems it may have clung to all the wrong places judging by the response it got over Twitter, where several eagle-eyed observers quizzed her on whether or not she was expecting a baby.

The first round of artists have been announced for the awards ceremony which will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The live line-up for this year’s Grammy Awards is beginning to take shape as Madonna, Ariana Grande, AC/DC, Ed Sheeran and Eric Church have all been announced as performing at the event on February 8th. The announcement was first made this morning (January 13th) by the award show’s official twitter account.
Coming back for more? Madonna at last year's Grammys
The Queen of Pop had been teasing a possible performance at this year’s awards, posting a pic on Instagram of an award mixed with her Rebel Heart artwork, along with the caption, "Rebel Hearts see you Feb 8th @TheGRAMMYs".
Metallica and Lang Lang? Check out these other collaborations.
Metallica teamed up with the phenomenally talented Chinese pianist Lang Lang at the 56th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (January 26, 2013). It was a strange collaboration on paper, though offered a brooding intensity to the band's classic song One. Check out Metallica and Lang Lang.
Metallica Arrive At The Grammy Awards
"It's been 22 years, I do believe [since we last performed at the Grammys], so we're excited to be back," Lars Ulrich told Artisan News before the performance, "That's a long time to be away from anything, so we've got a lot of energy stored up that we're ready to unleash.

At least Taylor Swift's Grammys 2014 kicked Reddit into life.
Taylor Swift's Grammys 2014 probably wasn't one for her scrapbook. The country-pop star failed to land the award for best country album - losing out to Kacey Musgrave's Same Trailer Different Park - and was then spotted mistakenly half-celebrating a win in the Best Album category before realising the successful recipient was actually RRRRRandom Access Memories by Daft Punk and not RRRRRed, but Taylor Swift.

Quite why young Swifty thought she'd won the evening's top award after her record failed to win in its genre is beyond us, though then again, the surprise on her and her various label executives' faces said it all.

The surviving Beatles will perform at the ceremony and fans are hoping the two will join each other on stage for a reunion performance
Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are set to perform at this years 56th Grammy Awards, with their inclusion to the Grammys set list being announced this week by the music awards showcase. Although the organisers for the event have revealed that the pair will perform, they have yet to specify whether the two will appear on stage together at all, a prospect that most are hoping for.
Paul and Ringo will hopefully be performing together
The pair were announced as two of the latest confirmed acts to appear at the awards show, with fellow performers John Legend, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Kacey Musgraves, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Sara Bareilles and Carole King also added to the bill.
The Grammy Awards have begun announcing their performers, and it's already shaping up to be the biggest music event of 2014.
The Grammy Awards are the biggest night in music — but it looks like they may be even bigger this year. Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons have announced they will be performing together at the award show, according to MTV.

Lamar and Imagine Dragons join other previously announced performers Daft Punk, as well as a duet by Pink and Nate Ruess of fun. Daft Punk rarely perform together in public, and the announcement was a delightful surprise to all their fans. Other performers are expected to be added all the way up until show time.
While some bands got some awards and gave some speeches, the real essence of The Grammys could be found elsewhere. What? You might ask; celebrity gossip of course! And what could be better than British powerhouse singer Adele telling Chris Brown off... or did she?
The photo certainly suggest she was giving him an earful for not awarding Frank Ocean with a standing ovation, which everyone else did, or for beating up Rihanna all those years ago. Adele looks like she's shouting, and Brown looks on the defensive, but that's not really the way it panned out. "Chris Brown and I were complimenting each other in that photo actually!" tweeted the Skyfall singer and Oscar nominee, confirming that a war of words didn't, in fact, take place. Adele, bless her, seemed star struck herself. And this is a 9-time Grammy award-winning artist! She was prancing around grabbing pictures with all the A-listers, including Beyonce, Rihanna, Katy Perry, and of course, the controversial Mr. Brown.
There was one person she didn't get a picture with though, and that was Ukrainian TV prankster Vitalii Sediuk, who climbed up when the Brit singer won Best Pop Solo Performance and said: "It's such an honour to receive this award" Jennifer Lopez sorted him out, and he ended up spending a night in jail. Worth it? Probably.

Chris Brown is already having a bad influence on Rihanna, since they’ve got back together – or is it the other way round? Either way, the controversial couple sure knew how to get tongues wagging at the Grammys at the weekend, with the pair reportedly celebrating the evening by lighting up a marijuana joint and having a smoke at the music event’s after party.
Of course, Chris Brown and Rihanna were making Grammys headlines four years ago for even darker reasons, when it was revealed that Brown had physically assaulted the pop star in their car. Despite the consternation of the rest of the world, though, the pair have managed to reconcile and are, as we understand it, back in a relationship together. TMZ reports that Rihanna won the seventh Grammy of her career and subsequently decided to pop back to an afterparty at the Supperclub in Los Angeles with Brown in tow. Sources say the venue was acrid with the smell of pot smoke.
The pair were spotted leaving the party at about 3:20am in the morning, with Brown driving – slightly worrying if they were wasted as TMZ’s sources claimed they are. And of course, we all know what happened last time they were together in a car around the time of the Grammys...
Ahead of the Grammys awards on Sunday, speculation was rife that Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood had made it very, very clear that they didn’t intend to sit anywhere near each other inside the Staples Center. “Taylor feels Carrie is always rude to her, so she steers clear of her,” a source recently told Us Weekly. So was it true? Were the two biggest names in country music really at each other’s throats?
Not according to Underwood.
The 29-year-old Grammy winner was quizzed on the apparent feud by Gayle King for a CBS This Morning interview (set to air Wednesday), saying, “No [there’s no feud], not that I know of at least.” Somewhat ironically, Carrie said she was a big fan of Swift, even revealing which song is her favorite. “I really like ‘I Knew You Were Trouble.’ It sounded a lot different for her. I liked the branching out, trying some different sounds,” she told King.

A Week in Videos...The popularity of Unknown Mortal Orchestra has been on a slow burning rise for some months now. Taken from their forthcoming second album, helpfully entitled II, ‘So Good At Being In Trouble’ sees the band in a particularly catchy mode, a lilting melody lifting the trademark stoner vibe. The video features the actor Christopher Mintz-Plasse (you’ll know him as McLovin’ from the movie Superbad) causing a scene and trying to snatch a hippy from a scene that could well be set in a 1960s era Venice Beach.
In this video, Nina Simone talks about freedom and love, before the film cuts to a grainy performance of her performing ‘I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free.’ One of music’s legendary performers, Simone’s rendition of the song showcases her warm and passionate vocal. On the subject of freedom, Simone insists that she couldn’t possibly describe how it feels to be free, just as much as its impossible to describe the feeling of being in love. To hear her perform the track, though, you get just a glimpse of what freedom might feel like.
