As we approach the lucrative holiday shopping season, get ready for a flood of celebs promoting their fashionable wares ranging from branded perfumes and makeup collections to even complete clothing lines. Rihanna‘s has pimped her Fenty line for a few years now, but her latest idea is to attack the global cosmetic market, which is reportedly worth around $460 billion! God damn! Even if she gets a .00001% of that market, that’s still a consdierable chunk of change! For more info, go here.

Either Jessica Alba is on Instagram’s marketing payroll or she’s genuinely enjoy using the social media company’s stories feature. Judging by the fact that Jessica is a smooth operator when it comes to her various business endeavors, we’re going to assume she’s getting some cash flow courtesy of Facebook and Instagram. Check out her latest post below as the Hollywood actress, mom & businesswoman works her mojo in NYC.
Out of all the girls in the world, it appears Prince Harry will cash in his “single life” chips to settle down with former model Meghan Markle (at least that’s what it’s looking like at the moment). So, what’s the official take on this chick, anyway?
Let’s hope that Prince Harry comes to his natural, man-whore senses and kicks married life further down the road (recommended age for royal males is anytime after their 65th birthday). It’s fairly obvious that he’s caving to familial pressures by even considering marriage when obviously it’s not in his best long-term personal interests.
For those of you interested to learn more, check out Meghan’s latest interview in Vanity Fair.
It shouldn’t come as a total surprise considering Kristen has been rocking the Ellen-inspired lesbo look for a few years now (not that there’s anything wrong with the lesbo look). I have to admit, this look is a little sexier than whatever she had going during the “Twilight” years. Plus, bisexual Kristen even has a scissor buddy (Stella Maxwell) to compliment the look, so more power to her.
Celebrities won’t exactly make a dent with their larger-than-average donations, but they will attract attention to the desperate cry for help and get all of us regular people to start chipping in to help the thousands of flood victims in Houston and surrounding areas. After seeing what some of the big A-listers earned in the past year and then seeing their donations, I have to admit, I was left scratching my head with a few of the donations.
Here’s are 2017’s top 10 celebrity earners (for the complete list, check here):
1. Mark Wahlberg, $68 million
2. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, $65 million
3. Vin Diesel, $54.5 million
4. Adam Sandler, $50.5 million
5. Jackie Chan, $49 million
6. Robert Downey, Jr., $48 million
7. Tom Cruise, $43 million
8. Shah Rukh Khan, $38 million
9. Salman Khan, $37 million
10. Akshay Kumar, $35.5 million
As for the famous donors to help the countless victims of Hurricane Harvey, here’s what we could dig up:
Chart-topping Houston native Beyonce and husband Jay-Z, who just closed on a $110 million L.A. mansion, pledged to help as many victims of Hurricane Harvey. They didn’t reveal a number, but Beyonce said she would work with her charity and pastor to come up with a long-term plan to help.
As for the celebs who put themselves out there with a donation amount, Sandra Bullock currently tops the list with $1 million! Kevin Hart started an online pledge challenge with a $50K donation and called on his friends to contribute. Directly below is a list of a few of the donors.
The Kardashians – $500,000
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson – $25,000
Chris Brown – $100,000
Jennifer Lopez and boyfriend Alex Rodriguez – $25,000 each
TI – $25,000
Nicki Minaj – $25,000
The list of current donors is here, but we’re pretty sure this will grow substantially as the days go on. Let’s also hope some of those numbers increase by a few extra zeros. If you want to make a donation to the Greater Houston Community Foundation.
Well, we’re pretty sure Katy Perry won’t be opening up her designer wallet anytime soon, but I’m sure an insurance company or two will take the hit to cover the legal damages of a stagehand who claims an accident at a Raleigh, North Carolina concert as part of Katy Perry’s lucrative Prismatic World Tour led to the amputation of her right big toe. For those of you looking for a photo of the toe-less foot, head over to TMZ (definitely not for everyone).
For the record, the tour grossed more than $200 million in sales from a total of 149 shows, so let’s hope they can flick at least a few million to cover expenses related to former stagehand Christina Fish’s lost big toe. So, how much is a big toe worth anyway? It’s definitely less than a thumb, but the fact that Christina can no longer wear flip flops and similar shoes is a major lifestyle cost. Let’s say if a thumb is worth around $5-8 million, a big toe must be worth at least around $3-5 million, right? I just hope Christina’s legal team won’t eat up all the winnings from the battle!
And, in other Katy Perry news, it appears the singer took another shot at Taylor Swift over the weekend at the VMAs when she was seen getting frisky with Taylor’s ex boyfriend Calvin Harris. Judging by how Calvin works his mojo with the ladies and Katy likes to give it up easily behind closed doors, I think it’s safe to say that Calvin got a piece.
Selena simply can’t seem to shake Justin Beiber. I hate to say this, but I’m sure Justin still gets to hit it from time to time whenever Selena’s feeling vulnerable, which is probably very often if you gauge Selena’s mental state of affairs based on media reports.
If you aren’t one of Selena Gomez’s 125 million Instagram followers, you pretty much dodged a major bullet yesterday. Apparently Selena’s account was compromised by hackers yesterday after photos of a nude Justin Beiber popped up on her Instagram feed. The account was swiftly taken down as if it’s managed by robots and then minutes later, the account came back online after the photos were removed.
If you’re a parent, this should be a glaring reason why your kids shouldn’t be on social media! Can you imagine all those innocent eyes being forced to see super douche bag Justin Beiber’s junk?! That’s just not cool. You need to create more difficult passwords, Selena!!
The Bieber images were the same ones that were published after the pop star’s Bora Bora vacation in 2015. Gomez and Bieber used to be a couple, but are no longer together.
Bieber has said that the publication of the images, originally in the New York Daily News censored (though the uncensored versions later made the rounds online), made him feel “super violated.” “Like, I feel like I can’t step outside and feel like I can go outside naked,” he told Access Hollywood in 2015. “Like, you should feel comfortable in your own space… especially that far away.” Source
It’s one of those celebrity statements that will probably made a lot of you roll your eyes when you consider how Katharine McPhee gleefully allows the industry to exploit her in order to keep the dollar bills moving through the system (and her various bank accounts). Along with a number of other big names, the 31-year-old filed a suit against various websites demanding that they remove the stolen images and requesting that they shut themselves down. Good luck with the latter, Katharine! Anyway, People magazine got a hold of Katharine for exclusive comments.
“I was hacked sometime in the last few years, and along with other celebrities a few days ago, my private photos were blasted all over some sick and despicable websites,” McPhee tells PEOPLE exclusively. “The photos that are mine I am not ashamed of. I love my body and they were taken for a man I was deeply in love with, or for no one but myself. But what is also truly disgusting is that these sites include photos that do not belong to me, and are not of my body, and I’ve learned this happens continually.”
The Scorpion star seeks unspecified damages and injunctive relief in the documents — in which she’s referred to as “Jane Doe” — obtained by LaWestMedia and alleges that she experienced “horror, shock, shame, mortification, hurt feelings, depression and feelings of powerlessness” following the publication of the images. McPhee claims in the papers that she “had a reasonable expectation of privacy in the photographs on her telephone and iCloud.”
“The constant exploitation of women with no recourse for these websites is absolutely abhorrent,” she continues in her statement. “These sites, which TMZ (thank you so much) brings more light and attention to by calling them out by name (shame on you), should be shut down. Period. The end. Even if you aren’t the one hacking, if you have taken stolen photos and put them on your site, you are an accessory and should be shut down. Laws need to be changed.”
McPhee hopes that all people, public figures and private citizens alike, affected by similar breaches of privacy can find justice.
“I am not perfect,” she continues in her statement. “I never have been and never will be. I try every day to learn to be better and to always live and lead with kindness and love. But no one deserves this kind of intrusion. I have other friends on these sites, images and videos that were stolen and they cannot get taken down. This is not just a celebrity issue. This is a privacy and sex crime issue that affects private citizens as well. I hope other female victims and men for that matter, will help and join me in ending this absurdity. Game on.” Source
Shutting down sites is not only shortsighted since a new crop of sites will come up within days but also sounds very self-serving. If you think about it, celebrities give up a little of their privacy in exchange for their career choice. In order to counter this privacy issue, they can either pay more money for added privacy or simply stop taking nude photos of themselves! Getting hacked is inevitable and let’s face it, it will happen again and again so the only logical solution is to stop giving hackers what they want (nude photos). Judging by how often these hacks occur, I have a feeling there will always be a crop of celebs taking scandalous photos of themselves and of course, there will always be hackers with malicious intent.
For having such conservative, Trump-voting parents and an equally conservative upbringing, Katy Perry certainly turned out wild! According to a recent interview with radio host Delilah Rene Katie stated, “I’ve been in that cycle before in a relationship and it had kind of reignited the relationship, and there’s only so many times you can reignite the relationship or want to or should and sometimes you just need to write it and never send it. It’s just that exercise — that cathartic exercise.” (via People)
So it appears that Katy likes to bang exes a few times following a breakup in order to test the waters and possibly reignite the relationship. If rekindling an old relationship isn’t the central goal, I’m sure it’s either out of boredom or nostalgia for a certain position or act she or her ex enjoyed when they were dating. Whatever the case, I think it’s safe to say that Jesus would far from approve! OW!
As if Taylor Swift slyly attempting to upstage Monday’s total eclipse wasn’t annoying enough, get ready for the 27-year-old singer to lay it on strong over the next few weeks (if not longer) as she goes into promotional mode.
Earlier today she revealed that her next album will be titled “Reputation” and she’ll release the first single sometime tomorrow night. You can tell by the image below that Taylor lives in a bubble in which she thinks she’s the center of the universe, but then again, when you’ve had the spotlight on yourself since a very young age, you tend to develop an inflated ego in which you start to think your shit smells like roses.
To compliment this post, we’re including a batch of (mostly) leggy pics of Taylor working her mojo. I’m sure we’ll see the singer wearing very similar outfits in front of local papz as she kicks off her album promo tour.
