Britney Spears Quits ‘X Factor’

britney spears quits x factor

Well, I hope you got to see Britney Spears last fall on ‘X Factor.’ She won’t be back for the third season. Britney reportedly doesn’t plan to return to the show. Instead, she’s working on a new album. A source said:

“Britney loves Simon, she likes Demi Lovato but her thing is music.”

Rumor had it that ‘X Factor’ producers weren’t happy with Britney, saying she was “boring.” I can understand producers may have wanted “crazy Britney,” but I’m glad that didn’t happen. This girl’s been through enough!

Penelope Cruz Pops On The Red Carpet

Penelope Cruz opted for an coat dress over slacks for her ‘Venuto Al Mondo’ photocall. LOVE the color. This is the second time I can recall her wearing a coat dress on the red carpet. That black leather one Penelope wore was one of the chicest red carpet looks I’ve seen in a long time. I have to give Penelope credit: she wears the most fashionable coat dresses I’ve ever seen.

Penelope is one of the most stylish celebs in my opinion. She isn’t too flashy, just very chic. Are you a fan of Penelope’s style?

Lea Michele was also a winner at the People’s Choice Awards last night! She was very happy to be named Favorite Comedic TV Actress, as you can see in one of the pictures. Lea kissed her statuette- LOL. She looks pretty in pink in this shimmering dress.

Are you a fan of Lea’s dress? I think she looks FAB. The pastels are winning choices for the ‘Glee’ star. Are you a fan of Lea’s style?

Jennifer Garner & Violet Hang Out At The Park

Jennifer Garner and Violet got to enjoy some one-on-one time yesterday afternoon. Jennifer took Violet to the Palisades Park. It’s great to see Hollywood’s busiest mom still makes time to hang out with her oldest alone. I bet Violet loves that time with her mom.

Violet looks like such the quintessential kid in pink and peach, doesn’t she? Girls love to put that combination together. It can make you cringe when you’re older, but it’s a fun look for little girls!

Which Young Couple Was Together Only For Show? (Celeb Blind Items)

celebrity blind item

Which young celeb couple was bound NOT to make it to Valentine’s Day? I have a few guesses. Read the deets here:

We know the tabloids and the fans are loving this hot young couple!

We also know that the relationship is completely fake and won’t last much longer.

The paparazzi are notified whenever they are on the move so they can be photographed holding hands and looking like a couple.

All the hand-holding and party kissing is totally staged. They don’t really care about each other… but they both sure know how to play the publicity game! They also know that they can never, ever admit that the whole relationship is a publicity stunt.

And here’s a fact that will either trouble fans or leave them greatly relieved: They aren’t really spending the night together! They walk into the front door of her hotel holding hands, but he only spends a few minutes with her. He spends the night at his own place, and then meets up with her the next morning when they are ready to leave. The couple then leaves the hotel through the front door a couple a minutes apart to make it look like they spent the night together.

The relationship is scheduled to be a very short one. They may ring in the New Year as a couple… but they won’t make it to Valentine’s Day.

Take a guess. Then check out the reveal! I don’t think you’ll exactly fall over in shock- LOL.

Breaking News: 2013 Academy Awards Nominations!

2013 academy award nominations

The 2013 Academy Awards nominations were just announced! The two biggest snubs I see are in the Best Director category.

Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman secured noms for their work in ‘Les Miserables.’ Bradley Cooper made the list. And Jessica Chastain also got her second Oscar nomination. Congratulations to everyone!
