Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Prime Time, Reality, Cable, Gossip, Rumors,

Kendall JennerKendall Jenner has hinted she plans to quit her family's reality TV series in the near future.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, who appears in the June edition of French Vogue, admits she wants to focus on her modeling career.

When asked about her success on the catwalk, the 18-year-old brunette beauty told E! News, "I get more and more comfortable with everything. It's fun though, it's the world I wanna be living in, so it's awesome."

Kendall found out she would be appearing in the fashion bible during Paris Fashion Week in March. "I remember hearing about it and I freaked out. I was so excited. It's a dream, it's incredible, so it's amazing. You don't know how to react, it's so surreal," she added.

The model also opened up about her relationship with US Vogue editor Anna Wintour: "She's always been very kind to me. She's really awesome."

Monster x Chanel headphones

It looks like Monster's next headphone collaboration will be with luxury fashion brand Chanel. After images of Swizz Beas and Karl Lagerfeld were posted to Instagram showing the two wearing a pair of unannounced headphones that incorporate the Chanel double C monogram, it came to light that they were a product of collaboration between Chanel and Monster. Makes sense, as Swizz Beats is a Monster ambassador. No word on pricing or availability has been announced yet, nor have any specs on the headphones themselves. That said, we'd venture to guess that anyone looking to pick up a pair of Chanel-branded headphones are likely buying them for the brand and not an amazing sound profile.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Concerts / Tours, Pop, New Releases,

Lady GagaLady Gaga kicked off her ArtRave: ARTPOP Ball Tour in Florida on Sunday night.

The "Applause" hitmaker ditched her usual grunge style and took to the stage in a cute polkadot latex leotard and fishnet tights at the BB&T Center in Fort Lauderdale before going through a number of costume changes. She later opted for a shoulder-length platinum blonde wig and futuristic white gown, a jeweled leotard with a blue orb in the center of her chest, and also dressed up as a giant squid in another polkadot number.

The 27-year-old star, who is touring to support her ARTPOP album, took to Twitter ahead of her first show and posted, "I can't believe the show is tonight, been dreaming about it since I wrote the first song for the album. I love you monsters. LETS PARTY [sic]."

Gaga performed hits such as "Just Dance," "Bad Romance," "G.U.Y," "Swine," and "Applause," along with her new song "Donatella," which she sang for the first time in honour of her fashion designer friend, Donatella Versace, and another new track, Partynauseous.

Tzukuri Eyewear makes losing sunglasses a lot harder with iBeacons

Tzukuri Eyewear iphone sunglasses

Sunglasses are one of the items that are easy to leave behind and lose, and Tzukuri Eyewear is looking to make that problem a thing of the past by using iBeacon technology. Imagine, if you will, a pair of shades with an iBeacon embedded into its frame that your iPhone connects to and is aware of. Since the iPhone can tell the distance of the beacon signal, you get a notification letting you know that you left your sunglasses behind. You can see just how far away from you they are as long as you are still in range of the iBeacon signal. Pretty cool, right?

The Tzukuri Eyewear models of sunglasses are made using 3D analysis so that they look good on more faces than the average pair. They have six designs in three sizes, each of which is handcrafted in Japan and incorporate high-quality anti-scratch, polarized lenses with 100% UV protection.


Kim and Kanye to Have Three Wedding Ceremonies?

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestKim Kardashian will have three wedding ceremonies.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is set to tie the knot with her rapper fiance Kanye West once in Southern California and twice in France and the couple's lawyers have advised them to have their civil ceremony in the United States, since they're both American citizens, prior to their French nuptials on May 24 to avoid any unnecessary paperwork problems.

"Typically, the US recognizes citizens getting married in France, but dealing with a foreign government and paperwork could be a nightmare. So just to make sure it's legal, Kim and Kanye will first be having a civil ceremony in Southern California," a source said.

Kim and Kanye - who have nine-month-old daughter North together - will have to have a religious ceremony after the civil wedding because of French custom.

Kanye West Jealous of Pharrell Williams

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Clothing, Style, Rivalries, Rumors,

Kanye West and Pharrell WilliamsKanye West is reportedly jealous of Pharrell Williams.

The "Blood On The Leaves" rapper is said to be keeping a close eye on the "Happy" hitmaker after reports he is close to signing a deal with Adidas, the same sportswear brand that Kanye has been commissioned to design a clothing range for.

"They are competitive in both music and fashion, Kanye always watches what Pharrell does. He thinks having a similar artist working on their own brand for Adidas will make his collection less special," a source said.

Kanye signed a deal with Adidas in December last year after a spat with the Nike - over royalties for his exclusive collection of Air Yeezy sneakers - which resulted in the end of his business relationship with the sportswear brand.


Amber Heard’s ‘3 Days to Kill’ Condom Dress

Johnny Depp and Amber HeardAmber Heard wore a "condom dress" in 3 Days to Kill.

The 27-year-old actress - who is engaged to Johnny Depp - admits shooting the movie wasn't always comfortable because of adverse weather conditions and the uncomfortable costumes she donned to play Agent Vivi.

"We filmed in the winter in Paris. It was about 20 degrees on the best day and I was literally wearing dresses made out of the same material condoms are made out of. I'm not kidding, there's this incredible latex designer who does a line of latex dresses. They were as weather protective as a condom would be. It's snowing and icing. They had to keep throwing hot water on the cobblestones because it was freezing over. It was raining and snowy, there was ice all over the cobblestone streets and I'm wearing six-inch unbroken-in Louboutins and Jimmy Choos and I'm in a condom dress and a long blonde wig. Did I mention it was snowy and cold?"

Amber also revealed she is "dying" to go to a country dancing night at Los Angeles gay bar Oil Can Harry's: "I'm dying to go. Every week, I try to make plans with my gays to go and every week something happens and I can't go. I'm dying to."


Taylor Momsen Doesn’t Use Her Sexuality to Shock

Taylor MomsenTaylor Momsen insists she doesn't use her sexuality to shock.

The 20-year-old singer posed naked for the front cover of her band The Pretty Reckless' upcoming album Going To Hell record, causing a storm on social media when she posted the artwork. On the LP sleeve Taylor is seen showing off her back which has a giant cross emblazoned on it with an arrow pointing to her bare bottom, but she is adamant the risque pose is artistically motivated.

"Everyone was like, 'Woah, she's naked.' But everything I do has an artistic purpose behind it, from clothing to my new record cover. I don't set out to shock - I've definitely matured and evolved. I'm just a person, I make art. My sexuality is there for a reason it's not just about lewdness," she said.

The former Gossip Girl actress admits she was perplexed by her sexuality in her teens but used clothes and fashion to learn about herself. "In the beginning it was me in corsets and stripper heels and all that - I was a kid, everyone thought it was so shocking because I was young and you have to be older to wear that stuff. I was a kid confused about sexuality and all of that and expressing that confusion in all of it. I think all teenagers express themselves in that way, I was just being very overt about it," she explained.


Lady Gaga: You Don’t Need to Look Like a Supermodel to Be Great

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Clothing, Style, Features,

Lady GagaLady Gaga has urged women to stop worrying about their weight because people who achieve great things do not have to look like "supermodels."

The 27-year-old pop superstar has suffered with fluctuating weight throughout her career and has been criticized for being both too thin and overweight. But Gaga has dismissed society's obsession with women's figures and insists it's time people concentrated on what they're going to do with their lives rather than what they look like.

"I want to remind everyone that people who win Nobel Peace Prizes and cure diseases are not supermodels. Your legacy does not need to be a perception of beauty that's not realistic," she said in February's Fashion Magazine.

Although Gaga is now one of the world's biggest singers she insists she would still be wearing eccentric outfits and pushing the boundaries of pop if she was an unsigned artist playing in bars and small venues in her native New York City because music is her life. "There's this implication that if I wasn't so successful I would have to stop. But I never would have stopped. I would be in some bar; being Lady Gaga," she explained.
