Guess Who Inspired Kim Kardashian To Go Platinum


Kim Kardashian Madonna

Ok, so maybe Kim Kardashian's new platinum blonde look wasn't just a stroke of individual genius. Apparently, Kim was inspired by another famous example of blonde ambition - the one, the only, Madonna. Apparently Kim, like most of us, has grown up with the image of the platinum pop prima and has always wanted to give it a shot. And we already know that the Kardashian sister is big on experimenting with her look - so it made perfect sense to do it now.

Madonna's fall at the Brits should have been yesterday's news by now, but it turns out the singer suffered some consequences when she took her tumble. It turns out the singer got a bit of whiplash and raised concern with her staff.

"I had a little bit of whiplash," she said later, while taping her interview on The Jonathan Ross Show. "I smacked the back of my head. And I had a man standing over me with a flashlight until about 3 a.m. to make sure I was compos mentis" (in other words, in full control of her facilities).

Madonna Falls Off Brits Stage, "My Cape Was Too Tight"


Madonna

This year's Brit awards was the usual cringe-worthy affair, with even Ant and Dec failing to eradicate the memories of James Corden's reign in the vast soulless hangar that is the O2 Arena. It was the usual mix of "oh look it's Ed Sheeran!", dodgy presenting slots and predictable winners though one moment - one priceless moment - almost made it all worth it.

MadonnaMadonna before being yanked off-stage at the Brit awards

In the concluding minutes of the show, Madonna, the Queen of Pop, took to the stage to give her first Brits performance in two decades. However, just seconds into Living for Love, things went very, very wrong. The 56-year-old was clearly struggling to untie her lengthy black cape though the dancers tasked with pulling the garment off-stage carried on regardless, resulting in Madge being flipped backwards down a flight of stairs into a crumpled poppy mess.

Tonight Britain’s finest musical stars (plus a few from across the pond) will gather in London’s O2 for the annual Brit Awards ceremony.

Why Madonna's "Rebel Heart" Pictures (Probably) Were NOT A PR Blunder


Madonna Nelson Mandela Bob Marley

Let’s talk about the Madonna thing. Not because Madonna still has any cultural relevance per se , but because a little bit of media buzz may or may not have been the only thing her publicity team was after with the “controversial” Rebel Heart images.

If you’ve somehow managed to stay out of the loop on this one, here’s the brief. On January 2, Madonna (or a PR assistant or something) instagrammed some photo manips, depicting cultural icons like Nelson Mandela, MLK and Bob Marley (also Marilyn Monroe, but that’s not the one people are getting angry about) tied up in the same black string (“ribbon”) Madge can be seen wearing on the album cover.

It’s not been a very happy Christmas for Madonna, with the news that yet more tracks from her upcoming album Rebel Heart have been leaked online.

Madonna Drops Six Promising Tracks Off New Album "Rebel Heart"


Madonna Kanye West

Madonna is coming out with a new album. No, seriously, the unofficially dethroned former queen of pop has some new stuff cooking. She gave everyone a taste this weekend with the release of six new tracks off her upcoming album.

Madonna
So, were the new songs even worth the wait? How do they fare compared to Madge's previous efforts?

She dropped the songs shortly after the record was leaked – in keeping with this year’s theme – and they’re already getting some serious praise. The new songs remind us of why Madge became the original pop princess in the first place. So now the question becomes, could Rebel Heart be the career revival that we've all been waiting for for a while now? Or is Madonna once again getting caught up in elaborate production and neglecting the soul of the record?

Piers Morgan Criticises US Gun Laws On Last CNN Show


Piers Morgan Meryl Streep Madonna Alec Baldwin Shania Twain Ellen Degeneres

Piers Morgan ended his three year run on his CNN talk show Piers Morgan Live on Friday (28th March) with a plea to the US government to change "the absurd gun laws".Morgan's show was cancelled following low ratings and possibly his involvement in the phone hacking scandal, nevertheless he left the show on a somewhat controversial note.

Morgan, ever controversial, used his final show as an opportunity to comment on the social and political implications of gun laws in the US. He referenced recent tragedies in which guns were used to kill large numbers of people which prompted criticism of gun laws in the US and worldwide.

Morgan has spent a number of years in the states over the past decade and described gun violence, such as that displayed in the Connecticut Sandy Hook massacre and the Colorado Aurora Cinema, as "a disease that infects every aspect of American life". Referencing these attacks Morgan said, as The Independent reports: "I assumed that after 70 people were shot in a movie theatre and then just a few months later 20 first-graders were murdered with an assault rifle in an elementary school, that the absurd gun laws in this country would change, but nothing has happened".

Are you a ‘Game of Thrones’ addict? Well if you are you’re in pretty good company. The hit show has spawned legions of fans and among them are more than a few famous faces, all of whom are very eager to share their obsession with the show.
