  • Beyonce’s Decision To Pour A Bottle Of '$20,000 Champagne' Into A Jacuzzi Has Angered A Lot Of People

    She's quite literally being pouring money down the drain

    It would seem that Beyonce can do wrong, after she left Twitter users rather angry by seemingly pouring a $20,000 bottle of champagne into a hot tub.

    It’s almost as if she isn’t aware of the impending prosecco shortage.

    The 33-year-old can be seen pouring a bottle of champagne brand Armand de Brignac, also known as Ace of Spades, into a jacuzzi during new Nicki Minaj collaboration music video ‘Feeling It’.

    Reports have claimed that Ace Of Spades is said to cost anywhere between ‘$300 to thousands of dollars’.

    So, understandably, some people were none to impressed with Beyonce quite literally pouring money down the drain.

  • Ace Of Base’s Beautiful Life Video Will Remind You Of A Gloriously Simpler Time

    1995, what a time to be alive!

    If there is one thing Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood has taught us, it’s that a music video is no longer just a music video.

    Thanks to increasingly high concept ideas and social media hype, they have become something of an event.

    So what happens when having a concept goes out of the window altogether? Ace Of Base’s gloriously bonkers ‘Beautiful Life’ happens, that’s what!


    Long before the likes of Taylor and Gaga were making mini epics, Sweden’s third most successful export (after Abba & Roxette, music fans) starred in quite possibly the most astoundingly insane music video of all time.

    To celebrate its 20th year, we've tried to get inside the mind's of those behind the video to finally understand just what they were trying to achieve. Wish us luck, we're going in.

    So, we open with the ever popular bird that balances on its beak and spins because, well, why not?

    Putting the SASS in Assassin

    So after teasing us all for what felt like years thanks to the never ending list of celebrity cameos set to appear, Taylor Swift has finally premiered the video to Bad Blood.

    And it is a thing of beauty.

    The high concept video sees Taylor as a sexy assassin type called Catastrophe, who is not only deadly, but also has on point office chair skills.

    After kicking butt together, it turns out that real life BFF Selena Gomez doesn’t actually have Taylor’s back AT ALL.

    As Taylor plots her revenge, there’s also a fair few nods to some iconic movies.

    Like Taylor’s Fifth Element inspired white latex number.

    But just how does the supermodel manage to look THAT good, yet still be able to chow down on ice cream?

    Well, as it turns out, it’s all about getting the balance just right.

    Speaking at the press conference earlier that day, Miranda told Yahoo Celebrity: “Well I follow, I kind of made it up, the 80/20 rule. I’m healthy 80% of the time and I indulge myself 20% of the time. Copyright [Magnum]Copyright [Magnum]

    “I studied nutrition and I really believe in having balance and feeding your body with the right nutrients and also having fun and pleasure in life. It’s really important to feel good and have those moments which make you happy. And having a bite of a magnum is definitely really quite satisfying.”

    Well there you have it.

  • How To Win Big Brother

    By The People Who Did Just That

    How DO you win Big Brother? Copyright [Rex/Channel5/Channel4]How DO you win Big Brother? Copyright [Rex/Channel5/Channel4]

    Yes, somehow it’s already that time of year once again. Big Brother 2015 officially kicks off tonight with the usual eclectic mix of housemates being packed off and sentenced to three months in a padded cell-  albeit it one that could have been exclusively decorated by Habitat.

    Thanks to the early release of housemates, bookies already have their favourites, but as history has proved time and again, it’s not always who you’d expect to win that will take home the prize.

    So how can this year’s lot get viewers on side? Should they manipulate? Should they play it safe and sit back? Or should they just be themselves?

    How do you win Big Brother? Well, we’ve caught up with a few people who might just have the answer…

    Receiving a pass to the final in the first week was a massive help because…
    I didn’t really stand in good grace with the public because of my past, so that gave me a miles better opportunity to get people to know the real me.

    Before going in I thought …I’d either be the first one

  • Taylor Swift Opens Up About The Moment She Finally Got Over Harry Styles

    And it’s actually rather sweet!

    Taylor Swift has opened up about her split from Harry Styles – but don’t worry, it’s all rather lovely.

    The 25-year-old singer told US Elle magazine about how she came about writing 1989 album track ‘Clean,’ implicitly revealing that it was inspired by her former One Direction flame.

    “Clean I wrote as I was walking out of Liberty in London,” she explained. “Someone I used to date-it hit me that I'd been in the same city as him for two weeks and I hadn't thought about it.

    “When it did hit me, it was like, Oh, I hope he's doing well. And nothing else.”

    And that, my friends, is what they call closure.

    Taylor went on to explain how she knew she had finally moved on from the 21-year-old.

    “And you know how it is when you're going through heartbreak. A heartbroken person is unlike any other person,” she said.

    “Their time moves at a completely different pace than ours. It's this mental, physical, emotional ache and feeling so conflicted. Nothing distracts you from it.

  • Proof That Sarah Jessica Parker Has Never Given A Damn What You Think Of Her Outfits

    Haters gonna hate.

    A lot of people had a lot of things to say about Sarah Jessica Parker’s Met Gala 2015 outfit.

    The 50-year-old sent Twitter into overdrive last night, with her OTT headdress and outfit fast inspiring a series of viral Memes.

    But will this stop her from doing the same in the future? HELL NO.

    We're very sorry to disappoint, but we have a strong suspicion that SJP more than likely doesn’t give a flying fudge what anyone thinks about her outfit choices. And she probably never will.

    She didn’t care what you thought when she was papped in this day-wear ensemble.

    And she certainly couldn't have given two hoots about your thoughts on this triple (yes triple) denim day she was thoroughly enjoying.

  • Paul McCartney Compares Writing Songs With Kanye West To John Lennon

    Oh well done, Paul.

    Just when we thought Kanye West’s ego couldn’t get any more out of control, Paul McCartney has gone and compared him to John Lennon.

    What were you thinking, Paul?!

    Speaking to The Sun, the 72-year-old Beatles legend explained that working with the 37-year-old reminded him of when he would write with his late band mate.

    He said: "When I wrote with John, he would sit down with a guitar. I would sit down. We'd ping-pong till we had a song. It was like that."

    Paul did admit, however, that he initially had reservations about working with Kanye – namely down to his chequered reputation.

    He explained: "My first thought was, 'Woah, what am I going to get into here?'

    "He is amazingly talented but controversial and can make eccentric moves. I realised if it didn't work out we'd just say so and shake hands and leave."

    Fortunately, things did in fact work out for the two, thanks to Paul sharing the story of how he wrote 'Let It Be'.

    "We sat around and talked an awful lot just to break the ice,” he said.
