Duchess Kate & William were suspiciously affectionate during a ‘date night’


Well, this is… suspicious. Over the weekend, I posted the candid photos of Prince William, Duchess and Lupo the dog at a train station. The photos marked a very rare occurrence for Will and Kate – William almost always throws a major hissy fit whenever they’re photographed in any kind of candid situation. Not only were the photos taken and sold to major photo agencies, but they were also published in UK newspapers, the same papers that usually embargo candid images. And now here’s a new wrinkle – Express (the paper that published the train station photos) published new candid pics of Will and Kate on a “date night” in Norfolk – go here to see.

Huh. What does the Express have on Will and Kate? Or perhaps a better question would be: what major royal catastrophe is trying to be averted right now? Did Will get a mistress pregnant? Did Kate flash her bum to an Express photographer and the bum photos are being held as some kind of ransom? SO WEIRD. Express (and People) also got some interesting details about Will and Kate’s “date night” too.

THEY are not prone to public displays of affection but the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge “could not keep their hands off each other” during a romantic dinner, according to onlookers. The love-struck royal couple held hands and gazed into each other’s eyes as they enjoyed a rare night out near their new home in Norfolk.

Locals at The Kings Head Hotel in Great Bircham could not believe their eyes as William and Kate, both 32, tucked into sea bream and shared an ice cream dessert after leaving Prince George, one, back at Anmer Hall, their country bolt hole. William, dressed casually in a blue shirt, denim jeans and white trainers, held his wife’s hand as he ushered her to the bar at the Grade II-listed country house hotel just three miles from the Queen’s Sandringham estate.

William, who was driving, ordered a lime and soda while Kate, wearing cropped jeans, a black jumper and her trademark black wedges, sipped on a white wine spritzer as four bodyguards sat at an adjacent table.

The couple then ordered the same meal, grilled fillet of black bream with roasted Mediterranean vegetables, baby spinach, marinated olives and oven-dried tomatoes with arrabiata sauce, priced £16.25. William requested two scoops of vanilla ice cream, with two spoons.

An onlooker said: “William was extremely affectionate and considerate towards Kate throughout. She walked in with wet hair. She kept playing with it, twisting it around her fingers while talking to him. They were quite flirtatious and couldn’t keep their hands off each other. When they had finished their meal, a couple of locals came up to them and said hello. They smiled and were very chatty, very accommodating. My overwhelming feeling was how normal they were. They just seemed happy to mix with the locals.”

The couple arrived at 7.45pm on Thursday and left hand-in-hand two hours later. They have spent the past fortnight in Norfolk overseeing final renovations to the 200-year-old Grade II-listed mansion gifted by the Queen.

[From Express]

Affectionate? Ice cream? Hair twirling? Flirtatious? WHO ARE YOU? And what have you done to the real Will and Kate? People Magazine had much of the same coverage, but they did have this asinine quote from an unnamed “local” in Norfolk: “We see the royals around, but you don’t acknowledge them, as it were. We just leave them, so they can be like everyone else. It’s just how we are in Norfolk – we leave people alone. The royal family’s been coming here for I don’t know how many years, and I like the fact that they can come and just ‘be’ and do their own thing.” Yes, that’s why you’re giving quotes to People Mag.

Last thing… someone named Millie Macintosh (she’s a reality show person in the UK) had some stuff to say about Kate’s terrible style. It was actually sort of on point. Millie said: “I would love to give the Duchess of Cambridge a makeover. I think Kate wears too much eyeliner. She would look great if she toned down the eyes, wore some bright lipstick and mixed up her hairstyle – a scraped-back high pony would look fantastic. She’d look great in one of my little wrap dresses as she has such a gorgeous body and I think it would be fun – less middle-aged – and a bit sexier without being too revealing.”

Celeb Blind Item Which Singer Needs To Watch Her Husband’s Donations?

Blind-Folded-Man17This sounds genuinely scary. This singer needs to look into what her husband is up to! Read the deets after the break.

This A list singer is being watched by the FBI. Apparently her celebrity husband is giving a great deal of money to several Muslim organizations, some of which are on a terror watch list. The thing is the husband doesn’t have as much money as he has been giving so has been using his wife’s money. Does she know her money is being used this way? It could be a career crusher.

Any guesses? There’s no reveal for this one at this time. I have a couple of ideas…

SHAKIRA The Most Popular Person On Facebook

2014 Billboard Music Awards - ArrivalsAlthough Kim Kardashian hit a milestone on Instagram with 16 million followers  this past week, that’s not enough for Shakira to even bat an eyelash. Shakira became the most popular person on Facebook with 100 million likes. That’s not 1 million; it’s 100 million. OMG. RELATED: Shakira and Usher are a playful pair on the red carpet.

I think it’s safe to say Shakira truly is a worldwide sensation. The singer spoke out about reaching this milestone.

I am honored and humbled about reaching this milestone. Social media and specifically Facebook has helped myself and other artists bridge the gap between the stage and the audience.”

Even Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s founder, offered his congratulations in the comments. Shakira even posted a couple of videos on her Facebook page to commemorate the occasion. I’m like Mark Zuckerberg: Congratulations, Shakira!

Leonardo DiCaprio to Justin Bieber: Stay Away From Me!

Justin Bieber swagged all over Cannes during the city’s star-studded film festival last month, but there was at least one A-lister who had zero interest in JB’s shirtless shenanigans.

A source tells Star magazine that Justin attempted a meet-and-greet with Leonardo DiCaprio only to be brutally rebuffed.

  • Pic of Leonardo DiCaprio
  • Justin Bieber Mustache Fail

“Justin was strutting his stuff all over the club, walking around shirtless and scoping out chicks,” says the witness. “But when he heard Leo was there, he had his bodyguard muscle a path to where Leo was sitting.”

“Justin was nodding and smiling in Leo’s direction, but Leo shook his head no and waved him off.”

Getting shot down by the King of the World has gotta sting, but, Bieber also hooked up with Adriana Lima while he was in Cannes, and we’d say that’s a pretty solid consolation prize.

Of course, this isn’t the first time that Leo has publicly dissed unworthy tabloid fodder in the past few weeks.

At a recent party in LA DiCaprio snubbed the Kardashians by refusing to enter the building until he received word that they were done filming their reality show.

And that, folks, is why Leo is able to play a rich douche in movie after movie and still remain one of the world’s most beloved actors.

He Can't Keep His Shirt On

Yeah. Selfies like this work if you’re Matthew McConaughey. Not Justin Bieber. Also, Matthew McConaughey would never post selfies like this because he doesn’t need to constantly beg for attention or prove to himself that he’s cool.

Justin Bieber got baptized in a bathtub, he’s ‘clean with God’ now

Justin Bieber

Most of us have known for years that Justin Bieber is a disaster, but it’s only been about a week since we also learned that he is a racist disaster. Not just one but two videos have dropped, and there may be more on the way. The world has now seen Swaggy making racist jokes about black people and how he wanted to join the Ku Klux Klan. What an embarrassment. Even Swaggy is embarrassed. He’s been crying like a baby ever since the videos dropped.

Team Swag has a plan. They will make you forget all about Bieber’s wrongdoings and his racist videos. I talked about how Swaggy ran around NYC trying to get baptized (re-baptized?) right after he played grab-ass with a flight attendant in February. Now we’re hearing that the baptism happened in the midst of the fabled shakedown over these videos. We’re supposed to feel bad for Swaggy, who felt so bad about his racism that he had to wash away his sins … in a freaking bathtub:

Justin Bieber turned to the Lord while being shaken down over his racist videos — and TMZ has learned he washed away his sins with a baptism performed in a bathroom.

Pastor Carl Lentz — who works with Bieber in NYC — tells us he spent a week doing intense Bible study with Justin last month … in the wake of being extorted over the videos.

As we previously reported — JB’s team was contacted 2 months ago by a man in possession of the videos and wanted a million dollar payday or else he’d go public.

We’re told Bieber’s religious resurgence focused on studying Bible passages and attending services … culminating in an actual baptism performed in the bathtub of one of the singer’s friends.

Why a bathtub, you ask? We’re told JB previously checked out a bunch of churches for the dip — but his cover was blown every time and he wanted to keep the whole thing private.

Justin’s now got a clean slate with God — but the public is a harder nut to crack.


[From TMZ]

This is ridiculous. I’m not religious at all, but even I find it offensive that Bieber is pretending to be contrite and thinks he can wash away his a-hole behavior in a bathtub. Is there a limit to the number of times one can be baptized before God would be like, “Sorry, game over”? That’s an honest question, but I’m not surprised by Bieber’s tactics. He’s already told us that he was chosen for fame by God.

Bieber’s mentor, Usher, has finally said something about the video scandal. He Instagrammed a picture of himself with little(r) Bieber and the following caption: “I can tell you that he hasn’t always chosen the path of his greatest potential, but he is unequivocally not a racist. What he was 5 years ago was a naive child who did not understand the negative power and degradation that comes from playing with racial slurs. What he is now is a young man faced with an opportunity to become his best self, an example to the millions of kids that follow him to not make the same mistakes.” Hmm. That last part sounds like a challenge, no?

Cressida Bonas ‘had to sacrifice a lot to be with Harry,’ he’s been texting her?


You guys, I’m starting to get concerned that we’ve completely misunderstood the Cressida Bonas situation. To hear her friends tell it, Cressy is too bohemian and hippie-chic, and her free spirit would have been miserably tamped down by the mean old royal family. But in the wake of Cressy and Harry’s split, we’re seeing a new side of Cressy. And she seems more and more like Duchess Kate. As in, the Daily Mail’s Katie Nicholl published a story which seems designed to “force” Harry into rethinking the breakup, which is almost exactly what Kate did with William in 2007. You can read the Nicholl piece here. Some highlights:

*Cressida is so down-to-earth and boho that she wears Nike Air Max trainers all the time, even to semi-official events. And Prince Harry tried to “gently nudge Cressida about her relaxed dress sense. Harry suggested tenderly that – in the future – she would have to smarten up just a touch if she was to get the full seal of approval from The Firm.” This led to a fight in which Cressy “declared she felt the Palace was ‘banning’ her from being herself.”

*Cressida really has been given “compassionate leave” from work. Nicholl writes: “A passionate and talented dancer, she had only taken the £20,000 office job after being advised that she could not combine a performance career and life as a Royal girlfriend. Now that role is no longer hers, she has been given compassionate leave while she contemplates her private life.”

*Harry has been sending Cressida “15 texts a day” with “updates, anecdotes and words of affection.” He’s trying to “prove” to her that she’s The One.

*Harry wants to meet up with Cressy as soon as he arrives back in London. Allegedly, he believes they should get back together. They talked about marriage over Christmas, but Harry is wary of the pressure to get engaged.

*Another fight they had leading up the split: Cressida was not invited to the “boys only” bachelor party in Miami ahead of Guy Pelly’s wedding. She canceled her flight because, according to a source: “Harry wanted to party and Cressida didn’t see the point in going all the way to America to watch him fall out of a nightclub. She was convinced he wanted to go wild and party without her. But he has been on his best behaviour to show her that he’s a changed man.”

*A “family source” (I guess Cressida’s family) says that the argument about the bachelor party “escalated into something much bigger.” Cressida feels like Harry doesn’t appreciate the fact that she’s “had to sacrifice a lot to be with Harry. She has turned down a lot of opportunities professionally.” What?????

*Sources claim that Harry is convinced that Cressida is “his perfect princess” and this breakup is just a temporary “sabbatical.”

*Apparently, Cressida’s mom, Lady Mary Gaye Curzon, told Cressy to stop arguing with Harry so much and to stop “undermining” him. Cressy feels like she’s “too young” for all of this.

*This part is nonsensical: “While they have many things in common, they are also a couple in contrast. He barely reads a book; she goes to book lectures. She’s bohemian, individual, clever. He is sporty, unacademic and relaxed, though at heart he is conservatively traditional – like all Royals. She’s a free spirit on a budget. With her small salary she has to count the pennies, worry about getting a mortgage and take airfare costs seriously. He’s a Royal who has never had to pick up a drinks tab.” What?! She’s 25 and this is her first job – she’s been a perpetual academic and dance student for years. Didn’t her wealthy family bankroll her life up until now? And aren’t they still?

*Harry has met Cressida’s family and everybody was on board with the road to marriage. Apparently, her family members are “not happy” with Harry.

*Alternate theory: Harry and Cressida coordinated this breakup to throw the press off the scent that they are super-serious about each other.

[From The Daily Mail]

Okay, I’ll say it: the glaring contradictions in this story (sourced almost entirely by Cressida-friendly people) are making me rethink Cressida Bonas. You can’t be a bohemian free spirit, unwillingly to compromise in the face of the conservative royal family AND be on the marriage fast track to the point where your family was expecting an engagement announcement at any time. Something doesn’t add up (the Bonas’ finances, for one). And I suspect it’s that Cressida’s chase-me game blew up in her face, plus she’s starting to sound really temperamental. Maybe Harry should be done with her.

PS… I’m also including photos of William and Harry during their trip to Graceland and at the Saturday wedding of Guy Pelly and Elizabeth Wilson. The wedding was surprisingly formal – William and Harry were both in tuxedos with tails. Harry looked exhausted (huh). They were ushers at the wedding.

Katy Perry hooked up with DJ Diplo at Coachella, they’re ‘inseparable’

Katy Perry

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Katy Perry has the worst taste in men. As wonderful as Russell Brand is as a person, everyone knew he’d make a terrible husband. John Mayer makes a terrible everything. Katy previously went out with Travie McCoy from Gym Class Heroes. Travie also has a reputation as a douche. Most recently, Katy had a brief dalliance with rapper Riff Raff. Who knows what that was all about, but Riff Raff did retweet our story, and his Twitter followers were … not kind.

Now Katy has found another new man, DJ Diplo, and they were all over each other at Coachella. Katy previously romanced Robert Ackroyd at Coachella two years ago. She seems to find rebound dudes there. I don’t know much about Diplo as a musician, but his online presence is a bit sketchy. He dated M.I.A. for several years, but there’s a baby mama out there too. Here’s the gross part — if you google for it, you’ll find photos of Diplo’s wang … next to an unflushed toilet. He sounds like such a nice boy. Here’s a photo of Katy’s new man and the details from Page Six:

Katy Perry has moved on from her split with John Mayer by hooking up with top music producer and DJ Diplo at Coachella.

Perry, 29, was spotted with Diplo, 35 – the LA-based producer and recording artist who’s worked with Justin Bieber, Britney Spears, Usher and Bruno Mars – backstage at the music festival and also at a series of parties.

A witness told Page Six: “Katy and Diplo hooked up at Coachella. They were together behind the main stage, where she had a tour bus or trailer, and a group of her friends were hanging out.” The music spy added, “It was very obvious that Katy and Diplo were together. They seemed inseparable and at one point they were seen getting onto her bus together.”

The pair were also reportedly inseparable at a party for designer Jeremy Scott and Adidas on Saturday night. Radar Online reported, “They’ve been friends forever … It definitely looked like more than that! At one point he even had his arms around her.”

It’s not the first time Perry’s found romance at the California music fest: In 2012, she was seen kissing, hugging and dancing with Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd, months after filing for divorce from Russell Brand.

She then began dating Mayer in the summer of 2012, and the on-and-off couple broke up and reconciled countless times before finally calling it quits in February of this year.

Born Thomas Wesley Pentz, Diplo was previously romantically linked to rapper M.I.A. for about five years. He’s the founder of hot record label Mad Decent and part of the duo Jack U with West Coast DJ Skrillex.

Perry’s also been spotted at a host of Coachella parties with green hair, mugging for pictures with Steven Tyler and Robert Pattinson. She tweeted at the fest: “Dear festival friends remember, selfing is a disease.”

[From Page Six]

This sounds like a fling, right? Katy’s getting ready to go on tour, so I doubt she’d start a serious relationship right now. Of course Katy did get married right before her last tour, so who knows.

Katy has a new jewelry line coming out soon. She partnered up with Claires to sell cheap-ass trinkets with a “Roar” theme. I’ve included some pictures in the gallery. Claires used to be where I bought my tacky, massive hoop earrings in high school. They’re right up Katy’s alley. Teens will eat this stuff up.

The Voice Season 6 Episode 12 Recap: It’s Sisaundra Lewis’ World

Sisaundra Lewis made The Voice Season 6 Episode 12 her personal something Tuesday night. There aren’t words to describe that level of domination.

Watching her take on the formidable Biff Gore in a battle round performance of James Brown’s “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World” was almost otherworldly.

“All we try to teach anybody on the show is what you just did,” Adam Levine said, which sums it up well. This is a performance you’ve got to see …

Sisaundra’s “sick” register made this an easy call, despite Biff more than holding his own up there. He’s just not a “one-in-a-trillion vocalist” like Sisaundra.

Elsewhere, former opera student and lounge singer Ddendyl of Washington, D.C., took on kidney-missing R&B singer Deja Hall of San Antonio.

On “Say Something,” Ddendyl was praised for her performance, but Shakira makes her choice based on which singer she’s most curious about: Deja.

Shakira also took Kristen Merlin of Hanson, Mass., who sang the Dixie Chicks’ “I Can Love You Better” and bested Emily B of Twin Falls, Idaho.

Usher’s battle featured Stevie Jo of Tyler, Tex., and raspy landscaper Morgan Wallen of Knoxville, Tenn., singing “Story of My Life” by One Direction.

That sentence alone sounds ridiculous, but they delivered. Usher elected to keep Stevie, but Adam threw Morgan a lifeline, hitting the buzzer for the steal.

After the second of three nights of part two of the battle rounds (it’s a confusing format), 13 of the top 20 spots are taken, and only Blake has a steal left.

The final night of the battles is Monday, with a playoff preview Tuesday.

Who do you think was the best last night, and throughout the sixth season so far? Scroll through the rest of the Battle Round 2 performances below:
