THERE is always something new to read about celebrities, isn’t there? Well, this week is no different. Let’s check out some of the celebs who have been out and about town making news and finding ways to stay in the limelight.
Ain’t no Kardashians
Do not ever make the mistake of referring to Kendall and Kylie Jenner as Kardashians. In an interview with Glamour magazine, Kendall proudly claimed that “We’re full-throttle Jenners! We don’t have any desire to be Kardashians.”
That’s quite a relief as there are more Kardashians in the world than one could actually handle, what with their big half-sis Kimberly now pregnant with her first child with rapper Kanye West.
The girls talked about the perks of being reality stars as well as the downside of the fame that it brought them.
“Our family is closer because of the show. And when we are older, we’ll have the memories on tape. If some of those moments hadn’t been filmed, I wouldn’t remember them,” said Kylie, 15.
Seventeen-year-old Kendall talked about the negative side of fame, which includes no privacy and personal attacks from strangers.
“We appreciate everything that we have, but we don’t remember what it’s like to be normal kids who aren’t harassed by the paparazzi. I hate that.
“We are underage girls. I don’t want to be followed by random men I don’t know.
It can also be hard to deal with other kids who are jealous or mean. I can’t poost picture on Instagram without being criticised.”
Sharm says: Kendall is really my favourite person out of that crazy bunch. She seem more normal and less annoying than Kylie.
Single and free
Newly single One Direction hottie Harry Styles celebrated his 19th birthday in style last Friday and he definitely didn’t show any traces of a heartbreak as he partied the night away.
The singer who just broke up with country superstar Taylor Swift acted like a bonafide rockstar in a club in London as he spent a fortune on drinks for himself and his posse which included bandmate Nial Horan and socialite Pixie Geldof.
The Sunday Mirror reported that Styles had passed out on a couch at 6am and that he was seen in the arms of many young and beautiful ladies who helped make his special day memorable throughout the night.
Sharm says: Well, Swift may have sent Styles a not-so-subtle message at the recent NRJ Awards in France when she performed her hit single We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together but it seems that the lad doesn’t want her back as well. Burn.
Are they or are they not?
Just in case you’re keeping up with the Justin Bieber – Selena Gomez saga, the two spent the night together last week and that just got everyone assuming that the couple is back together … again.
Gomez broke things off on New Year’s Eve and just last week, Bieber wrote an emotional song, Nothing Like Us, about his split from her.
According to E! News, the couple has been spending the past couple weeks texting and talking, and one source said that “Selena is learning to love Bieber again.” The website also said that, “Bieber joined Gomez for the girl group YLA’s private concert at Soho House in West Hollywood on Saturday night and one of the band members even tweeted, “No big deal … Bieber and Gomez front seat at our first show. Musta been the music.”
E! also said that Gomez still refers to Bieber as “my ex-boyfriend” and is taking this relationship very slowly. “They are on good terms and hanging out. But they are not back together,” added a source.
Sharm says: OMG, what is up with these kids? Can they make up their minds as to whether they want to be together or not?
Steven Tyler is one heck of a fun guy and the former American Idol judge proved just that when he played a prank on the talent competition’s current judging panel. The Aerosmith rockstar decided to stop by the final round of auditions for the 12th season dressed in full drag and auditioned under the name “Pepper”.
Although he didn’t sing, the former judge did say a few crazy things that only Tyler could deliver with a straight face – that’s what the show is missing this season – and even flashed his derriere to Mariah Carey, Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj and Randy Jackson on his way out.
Sharm says: How many Likes do I need to get on Facebook before they finally get rid of Randy “The Dawg” Jackson?
