Simon Cowell Goes For A Spin In The Water

While St. Barts is crawling with celebs during the holidays, ‘X Factor‘ judge Simon Cowell opted for a different island for his fun in the sun. Here he is in Barbados with friends. It looks like Simon’s having a lot of fun riding around in the water. Jet skiing does look like a lot of fun! I wonder if Carmen Electra is one of the guests?

Simon is getting his 2013 off to a good start. What’s better than some fun and relaxation at an island paradise? I can’t think of a better way! Then Simon has his work cut out for him. Ratings for ‘X Factor’ weren’t exactly what he and Fox had hoped for, so he has some more re-tooling to do. LA Reid already said he’s not returning. Rumor has it Britney Spears won’t be either, and maybe not even Demi Lovato. What did you think of the past season of ‘X Factor’?

Nicki Minaj Celebrated New Year At Pure Nightclub

Nicki Minaj rang in the New Year in Vegas as well. Here she is working the red carpet at Pure Nightclub. Nicki should be working that red carpet, too. The lady rapper reportedly earned $5 million to perform for New Year’s Eve last night.

She topped Beyonce by $1 million, who reportedly earned $4 million for her own NYE performance in Las Vegas. These ladies got 2013 started off on the right foot! We’ll get to see even more of Nicki, too. A new season of ‘American Idol‘ will debut this month, and Nicki is one of the new judges. I’m guessing this is going to be a big year for Ms. Minaj.

Kim Kardashiasn & Kanye West Ring In New Year’s Eve In Vegas

Can you believe that at this time this year, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will have a BABY at home on New Year’s Eve? I’m still trying to wrap my brain around it! Here are Kim and Kanye at 1 Oak Nightclub at The Mirage Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. Kim had been scheduled to appear here and reportedly was set to earn a six-figure payday, so she had no plans to cancel, despite being pregnant.

2013 is shaping up to be quite a year. The Hollywood baby boom just exploded- LOL. It’ll be interesting to see Kim’s maternity style. I’m sure she’ll get some type of endorsement deal to lose the baby weight after giving birth. Does she still endorse Quick Trim? If so, you know those execs were popping bottles of champagne last night.

Lindsay Lohan’s Quiet New Year’s Eve

Here’s Lindsay Lohan returning to the Dorchester Hotel in London just before New Year. Lindsay reportedly planned to keep her New Year’s Eve celebrations low-key, just dinner out with friends before ringing in the New Year at home (or, in this case, her hotel). Lindsay didn’t hit the club. But does it look like she refrained from drinking?

She’s looking a little disoriented here. In all fairness, however, Lindsay could look that way due to the paparazzi’s flashes from their cameras. I can see how that would be disorienting at night, especially late at night, when you’re already tired. Does it look like Lindsay partied hard at a place that wasn’t a club?

Jennifer Aniston & Justin Theroux Kiss In Cabo

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux were still relaxing by the pool in Cabo on New Year’s Eve. They held hands and even shared a kiss. There was no sign of their guests; perhaps everyone was out paddleboarding? It’s clear what these two came to Cabo to do: relax and get PLENTY of sun!

I wouldn’t be surprised to learn they rang in the New Year by the pool. Well, hey, there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s the main reason people vacation in Cabo, right? You go there to relax and get some sun. Whatever Jennifer and Justin did, I’m sure they got 2013 off on the right foot. Can’t WAIT to see some wedding pics of these two this year!
