    Lady Gaga nominated for 13 MTV VMA awards – Spoilsport Kayne nominated for none.

    It’s been an incredible year for Lady Gaga and the lady shows no signs of slowing down. With the huge success of Bad Romance, Telephone and Alejandro, Gaga has earned herself an astonishing 13 MTV Video Music Award nominations.

    The controversial singer has broken records for earning more nominations in one year than any artist before her.

    Gaga released a statement saying:

    “I’m so honored for all the little monsters and self-professed freaks of the universe, to have more VMA nominations in a single year than any artist in MTV history. Ironically, I’m even more proud it’s an unlucky number: 13. A long time ago the world told me and my little monsters we would never be heard, together we changed the rules. God put me on Earth for three reasons: To make loud music, gay videos and cause a damn raucous. Thank you, MTV!”

    In other news, last year’s biggest twat, Kayne West, earnt himself an impressive zero nominations. After storming the stage to interrupt poor Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech, we’re sure he won’t even be invited. What goes around comes around Kayne…

    Katy Perry holds press conference in an infinity pool.

    Not the normal scenario for your average reporter. Straining to keep your hand up, hoping you’ll get your question answered and carefully balancing your camera on a dolphin shaped lilo…

    Well that was the scene of a press conference in Singapore yesterday anywho. And who better to front such an unconventional press conference than the anything but conventional, Katy Perry.

    The singer donned her finest, frilly bikini and joined a host of reporters in an infinity pool on the rooftop of the Marina Bay hotel in Singapore. Surrounded by an array of inflatables, the 24 year old discussed her upcoming appearance at Singfest.

    Katy looked in remarkable shape and in preparation for her wedding, is said to have kicked up her exercise regime to 5 times per week.

    Well, maybe if we hit the gym that hard, we could aspire to have a body like Katy’s. Or maybe we’ll just continue scoffing this Kit Kat…

    John James and Josie forced to stay apart by Big Brother

    John James and Josie have been punished by Big Brother for persistent rule breaking.

    The loved up pair were called into the Diary room yesterday for continually blocking their microphones during private conversations. As a result, the pair could only share a room together at bedtime and would not be allowed to share the same bed.

    For the rest of the day they had conversations through glass doors and had to eat their meals separately.

    The rest of the housemates split their time between the two, with Andrew commenting: “It’s like there has been a divorce and we have to choose teams… I don’t know whether to choose mummy or daddy,”

    John James was later called into the Diary to chat about how the punishment had affected him. Discussing the conversation with Josie later, he said he had explained to BB:

    “As long as me and her enjoy each other’s company… as soon as you wake up in the morning you have that person you care about so much next to you.”

    Later on, the lovebirds swerved the separate bed rule by placing their duvets and pillows on the floor for a late night cuddle.

    Stumbling across the pair, Dave asked: “Are you clutching each other? In a warm embrace of love?”

    “Yep,” Josie replied. “It’s beautiful,” said Dave.

  • Gisele causes controversy following breastfeeding comments

    Gisele causes controversy following breastfeeding comments

    Gisele has sparked controversy after comments she made regarding breastfeeding.

    The Brazilian model claimed that it should be law for women to breastfeed their baby for up to 6 months after birth.

    The new mum voiced her strong opinions on the matter in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar:

    “”I think breastfeeding really helped (me keep me figure). Some people here (in the US) think they don’t have to breastfeed, and I think ‘Are you going to give chemical food to your child when they are so little?’ I think there should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months.”

    No doubt Gisele’s comments are going to cause a sting amongst certain celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and Denise Van Outen, who both have said they decided against breastfeeding their young children.

    This is not the first time Gisele has caused controversy with her comments on motherhood. Speaking about her birth she claimed: “[it] didn’t hurt in the slightest.”

    As well as managing to achieve a pain free labour, the 30 year old also snapped back into shape a mere 6 weeks after giving birth.

    Yep Gisele, we’re sure young mother everywhere will just lap up these comments..

    New housemate Sam offends with comments about John James and Josie’s relationship

    New housemate Sam has asked a series of direct questions about the loved up pair, John James and Josie, since entering the house on Friday but has now gone so far as to anger the buxom Bristolian by insinuating her relationship with the Australian hunk is a money making scheme.

    Speaking with Josie yesterday, he said her relationship with John James could make her a lot of money on the outside world and he didn’t question that she would sell her story if the opportunity arose.

    Josie took this to mean her relationship with John James was fake and was extremely angered by her new housemate’s opinion.

    Housemates confronted Sam after he made his insensitive comments, with Minister Dave saying: “”You just need wisdom to be able to appropriate things… There’s nothing wrong with you having your opinions and judging stuff but with that you need to have wisdom.”

    But Sam was quick to defend himself saying: “”I’m not going to dumb down my personality,”

    To which Dave quickly retorted: “”Well don’t be surprised if people distance themselves from you.

    The teenager claims he has the full support of Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole who advised him on how to break the news to his mum.
