What’s buzzing this week? Let Steve Kemble, US Weekly Fashion Police Top Cop, entertainment reporter for the CBS Radio Show – Afternoons with Leigh Ann & Courtney Kerr on KVIL 103.7 www.kvil.com and America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru, fill you in on the news everyone’s going to be talking about:
Last night the Grammys were handed out at a ceremony in Los Angeles. Lady Gaga’s beautiful tribute to David Bowie stole the show and earned her a standing ovation after performing nine Bowie Classics in full Bowie Drag! Taylor Swift, who looked amazing in a color blocked Versace crop top and skirt and new do, won Album of the Year for 1989 and became the first female solo artist in history to win the award twice! In her acceptance speech, she politely threw shade a Kayne West claiming his new song released earlier this week made her famous! Kendrick Lamar picked up five awards and performed what many are calling the night’s most memorable performance, a medley of To Pimp a Butterfly tracks, with an actual bonfire on stage! Adele’s eagerly awaited return to the Grammy stage was marred by horrible sound issues, which were not her fault. I am sure there is a sound engineer in LA looking for a new job this morning! Adele taking all in stride sent a tweet at the end of the evening in which she said, “because of this show, I am treating myself to an In-N-Out burger.” You go girl!
As much as the Grammy’s are about music, they are also about parties! Clive Davis held his annual star-studded Grammy event at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. I’m guessing there was a shortage of seats because Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani ended up sharing one. She was sitting on his lap with her shoes off pretty much all night! #packingonthepda! It was definitely a couples night. Also spotted at the event were Russell Wilson and Ciara, John Legend and an adorably pregnant Chrissy Teigan. One Direction band member Harry Styles and former One Direction band member Zayn Malik (with pink hair!) were both in the same room at the same party! #awkward I’ve got all the party pics at kvil.com
Also over Grammys weekend, Apple executive, Interscope Records Founder and American Idol Mentor Jimmy Iovine married British model Liberty Ross! I bet you’re thinking the name Liberty Ross sounds familiar. You might remember when Liberty Ross divorced her husband, director Rupert Sanders, after 10 years of marriage because photos surfaced of him and Kristen Stewart kissing and hugging during the filming of Snow White and Huntsman. Iovine and Ross got married on the beach in Malibu and then held their reception at the Beverly Hills estate of David Geffen. The reception was attended by Ellen and Portia, Oprah, Tom Hanks, Pharrell, Eminem, Sir Paul McCartney, Alicia Keys and more! And check this out, performing for the guests was Mary J. Blige, Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett! Now that’s a wedding reception!
The BAFTA’s (the British Oscars) were held at the Royal Albert Hall in London and as expected, Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant) and Brie Larson (Room) took home acting honors. They are on their way to Oscar gold! The Revenant was named Best Picture. The Oscars will be broadcasted live on ABC, Sunday February 28th.
Fashion’s First Family, The Beckham’s were out in full force for the finale of New York Fashion Week! David, and children Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and adorable four year old Harper were all seated in the front row next to Vogue’s Anna Wintour for the debut of Victoria’s latest collection (Victoria Beckham) at the posh Cipriani 25 Broadway in New York.
Tyra Banks posted the first pic of her son York! She posted the image on Instagram this past Valentine’s Day with the caption, “this is the happiest Valentine’s Day of my life.” She and boyfriend Erik Asla announced the birth of their son via a surrogate in January.
