Beyonce goes from pale to black for African mag shoot

Singer Beyonce, who recently was in the spotlight for sporting skin that was paler than usual, was photographed wearing black face make-up for an African inspired magazine shoot. Beyonce, 29, took inspiration from African culture and wore head wraps as well as tribal-style clothing and accessories for the shoot for French fashion magazine L’Officiel Paris’ 90th-anniversary issue.

L’Officiel has said in a statement that Beyonce was “paying homage to African queens” and as a “return to her African roots, as you can see on the picture, on which her face was voluntarily darkened”. “As for the artistic make-up, the inspiration came from several African rituals during which paint is used on the face,” the Daily Mail quoted the magazine as saying.

“We find the images beautiful and inspiring. The designs are all reflective of the African influence on fashion this season. Miss Knowles poses with royal allure. A queen, a goddess, Beyonce is a bombshell beauty with a divine voice,” it added.


Amanda Seyfried Interviewed By Justin Timberlake

Amanda Seyfried Interviewed By Justin TimberlakeAmanda Seyfried pairs her Nina Ricci dress and shoes with a Roshi belt in this sexy new spread for the March 2011 issue of Interview Magazine, on stands this week.

The 25-year-old actress is interviewed by her Now co-star Justin Timberlake. Here are some excerpts:

On working with brilliant people:

AS: I’m constantly attracted to people who are too smart for their own good and who have it all together, because I can’t relate to that, so I can just kind of jump on their train.

JT: And milk their genius for all you can.

On the decision to go into the arts:

AS: “I didn’t really go into the arts for any specific reason. It was just to find a vessel for all of my energy. And also because I’m not good at anything else. I’m just really not equipped for, say, academics or sports.”

On giving up control of your world as an actor and musician:

JT: “I actually find it liberating to give up control. It’s nice for me. What’s been more of a battle for me through- out the process of moving into acting is that I feel like I have to keep reassuring people that I’m not an a–hole. There is a stigma that comes from being on stage and being a musician… Whatever you do as a musician, no matter how good it is, somebody somewhere is going to s–t on it. You put your heart on your sleeve, and what will happen will happen. But it’s like that for any artist. You do a painting, you take a photograph, it’s the same. That’s how artistry works.”

Lady Gaga is on a 'drunk diet'

Lady Gaga is on a 'drunk diet'Pop diva Lady Gaga has sparked more controversy saying that she stays slim by following a "drunk diet".

The 'Paparazzi' hitmaker, who has always maintained a slim figure, insisted she would never cut out alcohol in a bid to lose weight.

The 24-year-old singer admitted that her slender frame is down to exercise and her boyfriend Luc Carl's "drunk diet", which saw him lose 40 pounds while still partying hard, reported Contactmusic.

"I am on the drunk diet. I live my life as I want to, and creatively. I like to drink whiskey and stuff while I am working," she said.

Even though she is drunk, Gaga never misses out on her work-out and yoga sessions.

"The deal is, I've got to work out every day, and I work out hungover if I am hungover. And it's about the cross-training and keeping yourself inspired. I have to say, I do a ton of yoga," said Gaga.

Carl is currently working on a book entitled 'The Drunk Diet', about his non-traditional weight loss method.


Kate Moss wreaks havoc in sex shop

Kate Moss wreaks havoc in sex shopKate Moss is never without a trailing controversy behind her – the supermodel recently entered a London sex shop, drunk, and after announcing to the clerk that she was “so horny”, proceeded to buy seven sex toys before sniffing some poppers.

Despite rumours that she was going to cut back on alcohol and partying, the supermodel was still living up to her notorious reputation yesterday.

After getting blind drunk with several girlfriends, Kate stumbled into a sex shop in London's Soho where she reportedly demanded a different toy for each day of the week and bought seven mini vibrators.

“She started squirting strawberry-flavour lube all over the place and playing with a big black sex toy. She was hitting the side of her face with it. Then she put her mouth over it, simulating oral sex, and rubbed it up and down after smothering it with lube,” the Daily Telegraph quoted an onlooker as telling News of The World.

Kate then proceeded to sniff some poppers before passing out on the floor and then repeating the process after regaining consciousness.


Lindsay Lohan Too Busy To Return Necklace

Lindsay Lohan Too Busy To Return NecklaceLindsay Lohan was too "busy" to return the necklace she has been accused of stealing.

The troubled actress - who is currently on probation stemming from a driving under the influence conviction in 2007 - has been accused of taking a $2,500 necklace from upmarket Californian boutique Kamofie & Company and claimed she tried to bring it back to the store but did not have time.

According to a police report obtained by gossip website TMZ, Lindsay's assistant said: "Ms. Lohan was in possession of the necklace and wanted to give the necklace back to the store the day after she took it from the store, but she was very busy."

We intend to challenge the prosecution's case because the truth is, Ms. Lohan didn't steal anything.

Lindsay has pleaded guilty to felony grand theft over the incident, with friends insisting she was allowed to borrow the necklace, but the store later changed their mind after she failed to get them publicity.

While the 24-year-old star's team have been trying to agree a plea deal over the case - which counts as a breach of her probation - her lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley believes the charge is unfair as she disputes the estimated value of the piece of jewellery.

Shawn said: "We intend to challenge the prosecution's case because the truth is, Ms. Lohan didn't steal anything. But even if she had, it seems to me that the appropriate charge, based on the fair market value of the goods, should have been petty theft and not grand theft.

"A $5 lump of coal with a $2,500 price tag is still a $5 lump of coal."

Lindsay must return to court on February 23.

Emily Blunt found it hard kissing Matt Damon on the set of 'The Adjustment Bureau' because it was ''embarrassing''

Emily Blunt found it hard kissing Matt Damon on the set of 'The Adjustment Bureau' because it was ''embarrassing''Emily Blunt laughed when she had to kiss Matt Damon.

The 27-year-old actress had to get up-close with Matt in new movie 'The Adjustment Bureau', and admits it wasn't easy because she kept on giggling about it.

She said: "She said: "It comes with the job. By the time Matt and I had become friends and I had got to know his wife Lucy, I laughed the whole time, because it's so embarrassing to kiss somebody who is your friend."

She said: It comes with the job. By the time Matt and I had become friends and I had got to know his wife Lucy, I laughed the whole time, because it's so embarrassing to kiss somebody who is your friend.

The British beauty famously dropped weight to play the role of a nasty secretary in romantic comedy 'The Devil Wears Prada' and had to do it again for the movie, although she found it hard because she is such a food fan.

She told Style: "I love to cook and I love to eat. I make a great Thai green curry and a great roast chicken.

"I do it all the time. Obsessively. It relaxes me and I get zenned out. I go into a meditative state and I don't want anyone helping me."

"When I did 'The Adjustment Bureau' last year, I had to get really thin again and it was hell. I had to get ripped at the gym."

Portman Feels she is just Like An Old Hag

Portman Feels she is just  Like An Old HagOscar favourite Natalie Portman feels like an "old hag", because she's been working as an actress for almost 20 years.

The Black Swan star kickstarted her career as a child model, before working on Broadway and landing her first film role in controversial 1994 movie Leon when she was just 12 years old.

After working tirelessly for the last two decades, Portman has been lauded for her role as a deranged dancer in the ballet thriller, winning several honours and becoming favourite to walk away with the Best Actress Academy Award later this month (Feb11).

But Portman admits she's struggling to cope with all the sudden acclaim because she's been around for so long.

She tells the Los Angeles Times, "I made my first movie when I was 11. I'm an old hag. I guess it's pretty common with actors, to be doing this for 18 years, but it's extreme. "I feel like I'm on another planet or something right now.

It's not quite sinking in.

I feel really lucky.

It's something that's completely wonderful, and I have a very definite goal I'm working toward with that".

Is singer Rihanna bisexual? Ex lesbian lover tells all!

Singer Rihanna is being rumoured to be a bisexual after a Hollywood socialite made indirect claims in a book.

Model Tajah Burton's book "Low Down Dirty Shame" is yet to be published, but extracts have been leaked on the internet, sparking off the speculation.

Burton has revealed she had an affair with a singer from Barbados.

Rihanna, 22, was born on the Carribean island and admitted earlier that she is attracted to women, reports thesun.co.uk.

Though Burton is not ready to name the singer, she shared her experience.

"We had an amazing connection. We would order food in together, we watched TV together, we did all kinds of stuff. I listened to her music with her. Music is her life," said Burton.

"It became a sexual thing. It only lasted a couple of weeks because she was very busy and had a lot going on in her life and we had to be secretive. I would say she's bisexual. It was really exciting. It was unexpected and it was very fun. The sex was really good but there was more to it - we really had a connection. She inspired me and we helped uplift each other," she added.

Rihanna has not yet spoken about the claims, but in an earlier interview, she had said that everyone had the "ability to be attracted to both sexes". Once she even called actress Megan Fox "yummy".

Katrina Kaif 'Disturbed' By Tax RaidKatrina Kaif has slammed reports she is under investigation for tax evasion, insisting she is "disturbed" by the accusations.

However, a "disturbed" Kaif has hit out at the claims and she is adamant all her tax payments are up-to-date.

A statement issued by her accountants adds: "Katrina is fully co-operating with the (tax) department, whom she holds in high regard."

Kaif is said to earn $670,000 (£446,670) per film.
