Katy Perry’s livestream interrupted by topless Orlando Bloom

Published

on

Katy Perry’s fans got a surprise when her live-streamed video was gatecrashed by her topless fiancé Orlando Bloom.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star wandered into the frame while the Roar singer was addressing fans on the video.

Bloom, 43, picked up Perry’s teacup poodle Nugget and gave his pregnant partner a kiss on the lips as he said: “Hello, live stream.”

Perry went on to explain that she and her boyfriend had felt “a little bit blue” following the death of Bloom’s dog Mighty.

She said: “This weekend, Orlando and I have felt a little bit blue. I think it’s because of Mighty. And because Orlando was watching six episodes of Ozark in a row, it’s pretty dark.”

The pup had gone missing from their home in July with the actor telling fans a week later that they had found the dog’s collar during their search, with the evidence leading him to believe Mighty had died.

He wrote in a heartfelt Instagram post: “I feel so grateful to have learned from my little Mighty man that love is eternal and the true meaning of devotion.

“I feel sure he was looking down on me whistling in every back yard and knowing that I was doing all I possibly could to respect our bond.”

“He was more than a companion. It was a soul connection for sure.”

Perry is expecting the couple’s first child together, a baby girl. It is the second child for Bloom who shares nine-year-old son Flynn with model Miranda Kerr.

Meanwhile, the pop star is due to release her sixth studio album at the end of August, Smile.

The record was originally set for release on 14 August, however, it had to be pushed back due to production delays.

Cameron Diaz Gets Brutally Honest About Why She’s Retired From Acting

Published

on

Cameron Diaz has opened up about why she retired from acting in a rare interview with Gwyneth Paltrow.

Chatting via video link for Gwyneth’s Goop YouTube channel, the 47-year-old explained her reasons for bowing out of the acting game in 2018.

We’ve had a major crush on Cammie ever since she made that entrance in The Mask. Her acting CV is crammed with Hollywood big-hitters, from There’s Something About Mary to Charlie’s Angels.

But for the last two years, the actress has shunned the spotlight, instead opting to concentrate her attentions on home, family and friends.

Speaking on the latest episode of Goop Health: The Sessions, Cameron said: “I just decided that I wanted different things out of my life.

“I had gone so hard for so long, working, making films, and it’s such a grind. And I didn’t make any space for my personal life.”

The actress then went on to describe how her marriage to Benji Madden had impacted on her outlook.

She said: “I decided to stop making movies and really focus on my personal life, my personal relationships with my family, my friends.

“And then Benji [Madden] and I met each other and we got married pretty much immediately because we both knew that we both had to do it.”

Cameron told Gwyneth she had found “peace in my soul” because she was “finally taking care of myself”.

“I feel grounded and light,” she went on. “It’s a strange thing to say. I know a lot of people won’t understand it, I know you understand it.

“But it’s so intense to work at that level and be that public and put yourself out there.”

It seems that in her 40s, Cammie has had the time and space to step back and get a birds-eye view of her life.

She added: “I really looked at my life and I saw what I had been… I had handed off all these parts of my life to all these other people and they took it and some people did.

“And I basically had to take it back and take responsibility for my own life. That’s my job. There’s a lot of things that I had to iron out and a lot of relationships I had to repair, a lot of relationships I had to build that I was absent in.”

[Watch] Blackface To Release Official Music Video For #AfricanQueen

Published

on

Nigerian singer and former member of now defunct boy band, Plantashun Boiz, Blackface is set to drop the visuals for the track “African Queen”

Since the breakup of the ‘Plantashun Boiz’, Blackface and 2baba had been engaged in one of the longest-running feuds that the Nigerian music industry has ever witnessed. Blackface for several years had accused his former of stealing his song ‘African Queen‘. Blackface had stated that he gave 2baba the right to sing the song but never got credited as a writer by his label.

He also claimed that he was not acknowledged on the track which earned 2baba several awards and recognitions since it was released in 2004. From claims of copyright theft to allegations of stopping his music career, Blackface has always a few things to say about the singer.

Even after dropping their differences in court, Blackface dropped his version of the hit tune where he retained elements of the original version, like the lyrics, chorus, verses, and rhythm. Taking to his Instagram page a few hours ago, the singer revealed that the visual is almost completed and would be released soon.

Watch a clip of the video below:

Britney Spears’ father calls the #FreeBritney movement “a joke”

Published

on

Britney Spears‘ father, Jamie Spears, has spoken out about his conservatorship over his daughter in a new interview, where he called the #FreeBritney movement “a joke”.

Speaking to Page Six, 68-year-old Spears called the supporters of the #FreeBritney movement “conspiracy theorists” and said that this is between him and his family.

“All these conspiracy theorists don’t know anything. The world don’t have a clue,” he said.

“It’s up to the court of California to decide what’s best for my daughter. It’s no one else’s business.”

He also responded to accusations of stealing Britney’s money, saying “I have to report every nickel and dime spent to the court every year. How the hell would I steal something?”

“I love my daughter. I love all my kids. But this is our business. It’s private.”

Jamie Spears has been in control of Britney’s trust and finances since 2008, after Britney’s very public mental breakdown in 2007. More recently, acting conservator Jodi Montgomery stepped in to assist Spears.

His comments follow Britney’s brother, Bryan, speaking out on the As Not Seen On TV podcast, where he said he believes the conservatorship is a good thing.

“I am aware that [fans] feel like maybe she’s being confined or held against her will in some capacity,” he said.

Adele shows off seven stone weight loss

Published

on

Adele showed off her seven stone weight loss as she supported “Queen” Beyonce.

The ‘Someone Like You’ hitmaker wowed with her seven stone weight loss in the photograph, where she knelt under the television which was showing Beyonce’s Black Is King visual album.

Taking to photo-sharing site Instagram, she wrote: “Thank you Queen for always making us all feel so loved through your art (sic)”

It had previously been claimed that Beyonce and Adele had “bonded” over their weight loss journeys and sharing fitness tips.

A source said: “Beyonce is Adele’s ultimate icon and they bonded over their weight loss journeys. She has helped her with her own fitness tips, as well as giving her a different outlook on it all, by teaching her to enjoy the work that she’s putting in. The Oscars were her incentive to work hard, so she could show off the amazing results.”

Meanwhile, Adele’s former trainer Pete Geracimo previously insisted she never wanted to get “super skinny”.

He wrote: “As Adele’s former London-based personal trainer, it’s disheartening to read negative commentary and fat-phobic accusations questioning the genuineness of her amazing weight loss. In my personal experience of working with her through many highs and lows, she always marched to the beat of her own drum on her own terms. She never undermined her God-given talent in any way. She let her incredible voice do the talking, or should I say singing! She never once pretended to be something that she wasn’t. What you saw.
