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:
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are not hiding their relationship any longer! I first reported spotting the couple at various Golden Globes after parties in January. This week they were spotted in Maui, where a bikini clad Perry and shirtless Bloom looked very much in love on the beach! Their romantic trip to the Aloha state did not end there as Bloom followed Perry back to New York for a Hilary Clinton Fundraiser last night at Radio City Music Hall. Perry performed with Elton John at the event.
President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will attend this year’s South by Southwest Festival in Austin. This is the first time a sitting President and First Lady have attended!
Ooops, she did it again! Britney Spears graces the centennial issue of V magazine and is almost unrecognizable in a racy sheer bodysuit, dramatic eye make-up and high cheekbones! She looks amazing! Here’s a fun fact: she also graced the magazine’s first cover 99 issues ago! In the article Britney talks about her upcoming ninth studio album stating that she is proud of it, it’s different and she feels it’s her best work ever! She teased us on the release date saying it could be two months or it could be a year. She just wants it done right!
Madonna and ex Guy Ritchie headed back to court Wednesday over the custody of their 15 year old son Rocco. Since their divorce in 2008, the two have never really gotten along and have very different views on the parenting. My sources say Madonna is a very strict parent, while Guy is very laid-back. Rocco, who has lived in London with Ritchie since December, had a voice in court represented by an attorney. His attorney stated this entire situation was having a negative effect on him. The judge scolded both parents, saying they are the reason for the negative effect since they cannot come up with a reasonable solution. The judge went on to say he is fine with the school Rocco is attending in London and will not force him to move back to New York with Madonna.
Oprah Winfrey has put 200 personal pieces from luxury designers including Chanel, Dolce and Gabbana, Alexander McQueen and more for sale on eBay. You can purchase the items with a starting bid of only 99 cents. All the items were worn on her show or for covers of her magazine. My favorite item is the Stetson cowboy hat she worn in 2009 when she filmed her road trip with BFF Gayle King. All proceeds will go to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa. The boarding school is for academically gifted girls from disadvantaged backgrounds.
The estate of Michael Jackson is suing kingofpop.com, a website that sells gourmet popcorn. The Jackson estate’s attorney claimed they are benefitting off the Jackson name. The popcorn maker stated that the word pop is a nickname for popcorn products. The attorney fired back with, “wrong, that is the nickname for a soda not popcorn!”
Beyoncé’s causal style has been turning heads at the Brooklyn Nets games! She walked into the arena and the crowd gasp when they saw her in a t-shirt! Well I did some research and that was not just any t-shirt, but a Gucci T with an embroidered bird that sells for $795! That is one single t-shirt, not a lifetime supply of t-shirts and certainly sounds a lot more expensive than the t-shirts Mark Cuban wears at the Mavericks games. She accessorized with a Gucci Dionysus leather handle bag in red, black and green that you too can own for $3,500.
