Tik tok — Ke$ha is turning 26 on March 1! Happy birthday!
Ke$ha‘s crazy beautiful life is definitely something worth celebrating! The star had an amazing year filled with hits and magazine covers. She simply can’t be stopped! Let’s take a look back at what made 25 so special for this modern rockstar, as the star celebrates her 26th birthday on March 1.
Ke$ha Releases Her Second Studio Album, ‘Warrior’
On Nov. 30, 2012, Ke$ha released her second studio album, Warrior! She’s always kept her music fun and poppy, but she tried to revive the rock’n'roll genre with this album. Though it still has her signature style, we definitely are loving the new jams! The lead single off the album, “Die Young,” was an instant hit internationally. It reached the number two spot on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S. and topped charts in multiple countries including the UK, Australia, Brazil, and Canada. This chick can sure get around!
The album’s second single, “C’mon,” is also a bona fide hit! We’re not surprised, it’s a hot track! Ke$ha told Billboard in an interview about her new album, “I got really sick of people saying that I couldn’t sing, because I can do very few things confidently in my life.” No worries, Ke$ha! Whoever says they don’t love the pop star — well, they must be a complete liar. She’s spits out party anthems like it’s her job. Oh wait, it is! And she’s killin’ it!
Ke$ha’s ‘Seventeen’ Magazine Cover
The “Blow” singer cozys up to the cutest kitten ever on the cover of the February 2013 issue of Seventeen magazine. She shows her softer side with a gorgeous flower hair piece and her furry little friend! Definitely a departure from her normally wacky style! She told Seventeen, “People in the music business were like, ‘You’re never going to make it,’ and I see them now and I’m like, ‘Ha!’” Ha is right! Ke$ha is a star!
We are so happy for all of her success! Another year older means another crazy year of Ke$ha. C’mon, HollywoodLifers, help us wish Ke$ha a very happy 26th birthday!
The Biebs just keeps getting hotter and hotter, and the star has plenty to be proud of as he turns 19 on March 1! Happy Birthday Justin!
Justin Bieber had a huge year! From the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show to new digs and more hit singles, this star has a lot of celebrating to do! He may not be spending his big day with Selena Gomez, but his success will sure keep him company. Let’s take a look at his stand-out moments as he moves forward to the last of his teen years!
Justin Bieber’s ’Believe’ Album
The Biebs released his third studio album, Believe, on June 19, 2012. The album was praised for being a departure from his usual teen pop sounds due to the incorporation of more dance-pop and R&B genres. Believe debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. Congrats Justin! He also got a little more love from his native people this time around when the album’s debut single, “Boyfriend,” reached the top spot on the Canadian Hot 100. “Bieber Fever” can’t be stopped!
Justin Bieber’s New Mansion
It’s only a matter of time before a huge star like Justin invests in a hot new piece of real-estate. In May 2012 the “Baby” singer purchased a 10,000 square foot Mansion in Calabasas, California. The pad cost him a whopping $6.5 million! His new digs–equipped with a movie theater with stadium seating, a wet bar and a wine cellar, a large pool and sizable guest house–sound like the perfect place to throw a party, don’t you think?!
Justin Performs At The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show
Justin is not slowing down anytime soon! He’s in the midst of his Believe Tour, currently preparing to jet off to Europe and Africa. Cute, talented, and well-traveled? He’s not real! While we drool over his perfection, his recently released Believe Acoustic album is bringing in even more hits. We can’t wait to see what he does next!
Join us, HollywoodLifers, in wishing the Biebs an incredible 19th birthday!

Harry Styles and Taylor Swift have been separated for months, so are these latest pics of Harry and cute girls a shot at her or just completely innocent?
As a single man, Harry Styles can do whatever he wants, but by posing with cute girls, do you think he’s trying to make Taylor Swift jealous?
Harry Poses With Cute Fans! Tempting Taylor Swift?
Pictures have been released of the One Direction star having fun and cozying up next to two very cute girls. He seems to be very happy while he flirts with the girls. One of the pictures shows him sticking out his tongue and making a funny face, while the other one is a photo straight out of a prom night shoot. All they are missing is the tux and the nice dress! There is obviously a great chance that Taylor will see this pics. Will she be jealous over seeing what was once hers in other girls arms?

During a concert in Glasgow, a fan threw their shoe on stage and it hit Harry’s groin! HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY learned, "They laughed off the whole incident later in the evening as Harry played it up more then it was, as you can see on stage when it happened and his overreaction. It was actually not a direct hit, thankfully!" Obviously, he needed some TLC, and without Taylor in his life, a bunch of cute fans ought to have done the trick.
So HollywoodLifers, do you think that Harry is trying to make Taylor jealous? Sound off below!
The ‘Teen Mom 2′ star’s boyfriend and her estranged husband are locked in a bitter fued on twitter since she has been away to rehab! The two men have accused each other of cheating, theft and selling Jenelle out! Read on for more details.
After Gary made a comment about being just fine after leaving Jenelle, Courtland jumped into attack mode saying “really? and i am the piece of s***? how is my iPhone treating u? lol i cant believe its still the same number.“
But Courtland also accused Gary of cheating with Jenelle’s former roommate Hannah Inman — which he strictly denied.
Gary replied by tweeting “yeah where’s the proof? I went with @_scorpiogoddess to talk to her lawyer. Y’all can keep assuming s*** though.”
Gary Accused Of Selling Jenelle Out
The drama didn’t stop there. Gary was then accused of selling Jenelle out to RadarOnline.comfor a story about her rehab.
“Not assuming anything just relaying what was in the article.Who else is close to JE that is a source?” tweeted a fan. ”Any one she f***ing calls! All her friends have sold her out except me,” Gary fired back.
Gary & Courtland Tweet Each Other’s Phone Numbers Out
To get revenge on Gary, Courtland posted his cell phone number on Twitter on Feb. 27.
“well les find out if u do still have it lol…bet u wont have the same number in 20 minutes lol he wrote along with the alleged number,” Courtland tweeted.
Gary retaliated by posting a screen shot of Courtland’s cell phone number too!
We’re sure each of them had their phones flooded with calls and texts after that!
So what do YOU think HollywoodLifers, who is the better match for Jenelle? Is Gary cheating on Courtland? Did he steal his phone? Or is Courtland making a fuss over nothing? Let us know in the comments below!
We were the first to tell you that Kim is having a baby girl and now we can tell you that Kim has decided that she wants one of her sisters to be the godmother, will it be Kris, Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall or Kylie?
Kim Kardashian has one big decision out of the way. HollywoodLife.com can tell you that Kim thought long and hard about who will be the godmother of her and Kanye West‘s baby and they’ve finally picked who will get the lucky title!
Who Will Be The Godmother?
HollywoodLife.com spoke to a source very close to the mommy-to-be who tells us: “Khloe will be the godmother.” This is so exciting for Khloe, especially since she has struggled with trying to have her own children.
Kourtney Kardashian also picked Khloe to be her son Mason Disick‘s guardian. It’s unclear who Kourtney chose as Mason and Penelope Disick‘s godparents.
Kim Will Give Birth In LA
We also told you that Kim is going to be giving birth in LA and it will not be filmed for Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Our source also tells us: “They haven’t even started thinking about baby names yet, they want to wait until a month before she’s due to start the process. They know they’ll change their mind 100 times over again.”
We are so excited to meet Kim’s little girl! We just hope that Kim asks Khloe to be the godmother on one of their reality shows so we can see her emotional reaction!
It’s down to the final two! ABC announced that they will be revealing the newest ‘Bachelorette’ on March 11, and a new report says it is certain to be either AshLee or Desiree, who were both rejected by Sean Lowe!
Desiree Hartsock & AshLee Frazier — Who Will Be ‘The Bachelorette’?
HollywoodLife.com previously reported that runner up Lindsay Yenter was a shoo in for the part, but for some unknown reason she has been dropped from the list, reports Reality Steve. He says that AshLee, 32, and Desiree, 26, are the only two being considered at this point. Lesley Murphy has not been completely knocked off yet, but she is very unlikely to be asked.
An ABC spokesperson EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com on Feb. 26 that "No one has been picked yet." Considering the show will begin filming in mid-March, ABC really needs to decide soon!
So who should get it — Desiree or AshLee?
Desiree has been open about her willingness to do it, as she said “I would have to think about it and make sure I’m prepared to get back on the emotional roller coaster” on Feb. 14. “I do believe in the experience.”
Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey and Keith Urban all made a mistake by putting Zoanette Johnson through to the top 20 on ‘American Idol.’ Find out why I think she should have been eliminated on Feb. 27.
Zoanette Johnson was named as one of the Top 20 contestants on season 12 of American Idol on Feb. 27. After a rousing rendition of Elton John’s ”Circle Of Life,” which brought Nicki Minaj to tears, Zoanette was pushed through to the next round of the compeition. Sadly, other season favorites went home in her place.
I’d like to describe Zoanette’s performance as both crazy and awful. Sure, she has a decent voice, but her flamboy-ish antics should not be what drives her in a singing competition.
Let’s not forget that Jennifer Hudson slayed the same song during season 3, and her performance puts Zoanette’s to shame. In fact, if you re-watch Jennifer’s performance, you may wonder how Zoanette even made it through based on her rendition. It comes across as a bit comical.
Sadly, Zoanette’s place in the top 20 potentially halted Melinda Ademi, Juliana Chahayed and Rachel Hale from receiving a final place in the Top 10 girls. Was I the only one who LOVED Juliana’s rendition of Demi Lovato’s “Skyscraper?” It was stripped down, slow and sounded a lot like Taylor Swift! She’s the complete package. Plus, Melinda has such an original voice. She sang Jessie J’s “Nobody’s Perfect,” but Nicki immediately knocked it down, saying she shouldn’t have performed a song that another contestant did the week before.
Personally, I feel like these girls were a LOT better than Zoanette, but again, it’s not the public’s turn to vote yet. It’s a shame, because some really talented singer went home on Feb. 27.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Zoanette be in the top 20?

You now know Melissa for her ongoing sex tape scandal — a controversy that has resulted in her resignation as Miss Delaware Teen. But there’s more to her than that — here are five things you didn’t know about Melissa King.
We’ll probably only talk about Melissa Kingbecause of her alleged amateur porn video, her shameful resignation, and her $250,000 offer from an adult site. But just in case you wanted to know more about the former Miss Delaware Teen, we’ve put together this informative list.
#1 She’s A Nerd
The beautiful Melissa was also a stunner in the classroom. According to her bio, the 18-year-old was a member of the National Society of High School Scholars! She had “exceptionally high SAT scores, GPA, and AP scores.” Melissa’s intelligence earned her a partial scholarship at the College of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.
#2 She’s A Jock
If they gave letterman jackets to girls, Melissa would definitely have one. The former Miss Delaware Teen has competed in gymnastics since she was nine years old. And in high school, Melissa played varsity soccer and cheerleaded for her school’s football, basketball, and wrestling teams.
#3 She’s An Artist
Okay, now this is just getting crazy! But seriously, as a child Melissa won school-wide awards for her pieces and was even awarded Derrickson’s Memorial Art Scholarship. As for her medium? Melissa likes to work with clay and acrylics. And she loves painting monkeys.
#4 She Dreams Of Working In The Media
Melissa’s major at the College of Pennsylvania is Communications. Her bio states that her dream job is to be a journalist, either in sports or fashion. “She hopes to work on the sidelines of an NFL game,” it reads. Actually, we could see that. We still can!
#5 She Gives Back To The Community
Saying a beauty pageant winner frequently volunteers is like saying a beauty pageant winner is pretty — they sort of go hand in hand. Melissa has worked with the American Heart Association and The Woman’s Sports Foundation. Utilizing her love of athletics, also started her own program, called “Finding the Balance,” that works to help people perfect the harmony between emotional, physical, and social health.
She actually sounds like a pretty great girl to us (minus that whole amateur porn video thing). What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Does all this background make you think differently about Melissa King and her situation? Do you think she can overcome the scandal? Let us know!
Ashely Instagrammed her new hair on Feb. 27, saying, “Went to the dark side.”
Here’s how you can get her look with help from Clairol‘s Creative Director Marcy Cona.
Ashley’s hair appears to have an ombre effect, with her original blonde peeking out at the tips of her hair. It’s called a color tapestry technique and here’s how you do it!
“Choose one Natural Instincts shade for tone and a second Natural Instincts shade for depth. Tone shade should be up to 3 shades lighter than your starting color. Depth shade should be your current color or one shade darker.
First Step: Prep
1. Read instructions, put on gloves provided in the box. Before using any color, perform Allergy Test 48 hours prior and/or a strand test to predict results.
2. Prepare your hair color essentials. NOTE: A makeup sponge is required.
3. Shampoo and towel dry.
4. Curly texture: separate into four equal sections; secure each with a plastic clip.
5. Smooth texture: create deep side part and separate into four equal sequins, ear to ear; use plastic clips if necessary.
Step Two: Application
1. Apply lighter shade from roots to tip in all four sections.
2. Braid each section. Using the makeup sponge, apply depth shade on the surface/along the weave of the braid, leaving the ends out.
3. Process 10 minutes.
Step Three: Finish
1. Rinse with warm water.
2. Use your inbox Color Conditioning Treatment to condition your hair. Leave on for 2-5 minutes, rinse and style.”
Would you dye your hair like Ashley, HollywoodLifers?
The successful reality couple, who welcomed their first baby via surrogate in August, revealed in a new interview that they prioritize their marriage over their baby Duke, 6 months! Do YOU think that’s a healthy family structure?
Giuliana Rancic and Bill Rancic have been happily married since they tied the knot in Italy in 2007, but just became first-time parents in August when they welcomed their baby boy Edward Duke via gestational surrogate. As part of their new family plan, the power couple has decided to put their marriage first, and their baby second.
“We’re husband and wife, but we’re also best friends, and it’s funny because a lot of people, when they have kids, they put the baby first, and the marriage second,” the E! News host told Us Weekly. “That works for some people. For us, I find, we put our marriage first and our child second, because the best thing we can do for him is have a strong marriage.”
Giuliana: Being A Mom Makes My Marriage Stronger
Giuliana, who met her hubby Bill when she interviewed him after he won the first season of The Apprentice, has always wanted to be a mom, and battled fertility struggles — and breast cancer — before her dream came true last summer.
But now that she’s a mom, she revealed how much it has impacted her relationship with her man — for the better.
“We’re even stronger than we ever were before and even imagined we could be,” she said.”I always say to Bill, ‘You were my first baby,’ because he was! He was my first love and my first baby and Duke is my second baby.”
So sweet! It sounds like the Rancics are one big happy family.
What do YOU think of putting their marriage first HollyMoms? Are those healthy priorities, or should the kids come furst? Let us know in the comments below!
Christian Siriano presented his most glamorous and sophisticated collection yet for Fall 2013. And guess what? The glammy dressed-up looks were perfect for the ‘Project Runway’ winner’s favorite celebrity, Heidi Klum as well as rocker Ashlee Simpson, who was sitting front row.
Designer Christian Siriano,27, is no stranger to stars wearing his looks — and he clearly had red carpets in mind big time when he put together his collection of glittering black, red and gold dresses, gowns and formal pant-suits. And yes, it felt like even the black pieces glittered – everything had shine.
Christian believes that women should dress up next fall. Even his day outfits are sexy and have an after-5 look, almost all presented in midnight black.
If you want every eye looking at you when you walk into a room then get ready to slip into his body- slimming shiny black single-breasted short coat with faux fur paneled sleeves and mega faux fur trim worn with bare legs and super hot gold-laced back boots.
Or how about a gold snakeskin-fabric fitted bomber and matching skirt?
Liquid gold is a Christian Siriano love and he’s sewn up liquid gold mini day dresses as well as cropped evening pantsuits and strapless gold evening dresses with netted overlays.
For a more formal occasion, Christian has designed a velvety sleeveless black gown with a satin black peplum or an ethereal glittering gold bustier topping a black sparkly netted ballerina-length skirt.
“I wanted it to feel glamorous,” he exclusively told HollywoodLife.com backstage the show. “I was inspired by the Golden Age of Russian Opera, but still wanted it to feel modern.”
Admitting the collection, which had some fully hand-beaded gowns, was “a lot of work,” Christian is proud of his line — as he should be! With a collection this awards-show ready, we won’t be surprised if Heidi, Ashlee and lots of other Hollywooders step out in lots of his sexy looks.
