Alexandra Burke Has Got The X Aspect
In a dramatic finale Alexandra Burke, with a little assist from Beyonce Knowles, was officially crowned the champion of X Issue 2008. Days soon after she won the competition, Alex’s debut single, Hallelujah, became the quickest EVER promoting song by means of download, and it even managed to scoop the coveted Christmas number one spot in the UK. Extremely impressive, indeed…
Lily Allen Is Back… Finally
It really is been two lengthy years because Lily Allen last released a song, so earlier this month we were excited to find out that the star had finally developed some fresh new material. The Worry is Lily’s very first single from her forthcoming album It is Not Me, It’s You, both of which will be released in the new year.
Blake Incarcerated… Once more
Let’s just recap on Blake’s year shall we? In early 2008 the lanky star was serving time in the slammer awaiting trial on charges of inflicting grievous bodily harm and perverting the course of justice. Soon after his trial in June, Blake was found guilty and wasn’t released from prison until late November, following which he was promptly sent to a rehabilitation centre in Surrey for six weeks. Soon after failing a drugs test at the clinic, Blake escaped and went to check out Amy at a private hospital where they had some goodbye “fun” (if you get what we mean). And now he’s back in prison until god knows when. What a year.
Boy George, He’s Guilty!
Do you know what the former Culture Club singer was discovered guilty of? Well apparently Boy George falsely imprisoned a male escort then beat him with a metal chain when he tried to flee his London flat following a naked photo shoot. Yes that sentence genuinely did just happen. The star will be sentenced officially this January, and it really is expected that he’ll be serving a lengthy stretch inside. That sounded filthy, and it truly wasn’t meant to.
Diana & Eggnog Forever
Did you laugh as considerably as we did when Eoghan Quigg significantly ran on stage to hug Diana Vickers, mid-song, after she’d been voted off the X Aspect? We bet you did. To be really truthful with you, we were never entirely convinced of the authenticity of their relationship, but in the lead up to the competition’s final, in the course of a press conference, Simon Cowell let slip: “they are just two kids in adore”. So, are they a true couple or was it all just a crude publicity ploy to boost ratings and get men and women voting? Only time will tell.
Lily Allen Vs. Katy Perry
Earlier this year Katy Perry began a tiny war of words with Lily Allen when she mentioned “I’m like a fatter version of Amy Winehouse and a skinner version of Lily Allen!” Meow, get that girl a saucer of milk! So what did Lily have to say in retaliation? Well speaking on a radio show in December the outspoken singer announced: “It’s like, you happen to be not English and you don’t create your personal songs, shut up!” Effectively stated Lily, you definitely showed her.
We had been hoping for a long-standing celebrity feud among the pair, but sadly a couple of days soon after Lily produced her scalding remarks, Katy Perry decided to diffuse the situation by supplying an explanation of her words: “I was just kind of joking and trying to be funny. I didn’t mean anything by it. Comedians are not necessarily to be taken super seriously.” Is Katy Perry a comedienne or did we miss something?
George Bush Gets A Shoe Thrown At His Head
Haven’t we all felt like throwing a shoe at George Bush’s head at 1 time or one more? Unfortunately George has very good reflexes so it did not hit him in the head. Shame.
Is JLo’s Marriage On The Rocks?
Jennifer Lopez’s four-year marriage to her husband, Marc Anthony was reported as becoming at “breaking point” when both her and her husband have been spotted at diverse social events with no their wedding rings on. Apparently their connection has hit a rocky patch simply because of Marc’s controlling and flirtatious behaviour. So will JLo and Marc keep married for one more year? Watch this space.
Girls Aloud’s Atrocious Functionality On GMTV
Atrocious isn’t a word we use extremely frequently, but we think it aptly describes the band’s off-important, lacklustre efficiency on GMTV earlier this month. Do you consider they all had a go at Sarah Harding backstage afterwards?
Return Of The Winehouse
After spending nearly a month in a private rehabilitation clinic in London, we breathed a massive sigh of relief when we spotted a healthier searching Amy Winehouse frolicking on a beach in the Caribbean with a group of her pals. Will Amy stay clean and healthier in 2009? Nicely, we certainly hope so but we’re not holding our breath.
Gosh it’s been a shocking year hasn’t it?! So considerably has happened! For starters just about each and every celebrity in the universe gave birth, including Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Kidman, Billie Piper, Nicole Richie, Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani, and Jamie Lynn Spears. Amy Winehouse went into rehab more instances than we care to bear in mind, Peaches Geldof had an alleged overdose, eloped then moved to America, Heath Ledger died and Britney Spears was sectioned, then just a couple of months later she produced a surprising, and quite productive comeback.
