iHeartRadio Music Festival saw some raibow extensions in Britney Spears

with Ryan Seacrest

Britney Spears rocked some rainbow extensions to her beautiful hair last week at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas, making it clear that she came to party and wasn’t going to leave until the house was brought down.

The 30 year old popstar joined Ryan Seacrest, 37, on stage during the Festival in Las Vegas September 21. Spears also showed off her trim figure in a black mini-dress by David Lerner and glitter platform heels by Charlotte Olympia.

"Hello, Las Vegas!" a beaming Spears said on stage. "You know why I love this festival. It's packed with every kind of music fan." (Performers included Jason Aldean, Rihanna and Bon Jovi, among others.) “This is Vegas, baby, so we’ve got the world’s most insane deejays here to keep the party going all night long,” she said.

Spears also said she was a fan of the music festival because of the diversity of music fans when she joined Ryan Seacrest onstage. Whether it was the atmosphere of Vegas or just the young, hip influence her new job as judge on “The X-Factor” has had, Spears seems to be enjoying herself lately, and fans are responding.

Though Spears only recently decided to experiment with a more colorful 'do, fellow X Factor judge Demi Lovato, 20, rocked rainbow hairstyles throughout the show's nationwide talent auditions this summer. The two musicians joined veteran judges Simon Cowell, 52, and L.A. Reid, 56, on the FOX hit, which airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST on FOX.

"The Walking Dead" season three comes with following web series "Cold Storage"


Michonne's kick-ass katana sword
"The Walking Dead" season three is returning on October 14. But the fans need not to wait too long as the movie's web series "Cold Storage" is coming more early on October 1.

USA Today has the exclusive details of a new wave of "Walking Dead" webisodes called "Cold Storage," starring Daniel Roebuck of "Lost" fame. (Yes, that's the one and only Doctor Arzt — think he'll have a bloodier exit here than his previous death-by-dynamite-lecture?)

The Story of this series:
Cold Storage tells the story of a young man, Chase (played by Josh Stewart), trying to reach his sister in the early days of the zombie apocalypse. He finds temporary shelter in a storage facility run by a former employee named B.J. (Roebuck); however, things are not what they appear.

"Walking Dead" co-executive producer and special effects mastermind Greg Nicotero will step behind the camera as director of the webisodes, airing over the course of four five-minute installments. It's not the early days of the Atlanta siege starring the tank zombie that so many of us are desperately craving, no, but it's still a solid amuse-bouche ahead of the AMC survival horror series' glorious, gory return.

Lindsay Lohan in jail time for injuring a man while driving SUV


Lindsay Lohan is again in the jail but this time for another cause. She this time allegedly leaving the scene of an accident for which she herself is responsible but faigning to do nothing. The accident took place on early wednesday in New York City.

Just days after tweeting her ire about Amanda Bynes not getting punished for her many reckless driving episodes–which include hit-and-runs, Lindsay Lohan herself allegedly hit a man with her car on her way to Dream Hotel in New York.

Lohan, driving a 2010 Porsche SUV into an alley at 355 West 16th Street between 8th and 9th Avenue on her way to The Hotel, clipped the man with her SUV as she was pulling into the hotel parking lot, then went into the hotel like nothing had happened. The man filed a police report and was taken to the hospital for an injury to his leg; officers arrived around 2:30 this morning to place her under arrest. She was released a couple of hours later.

The good news for Lindsay is that alcohol was not believed to be a factor in the accident, and she was not made to take a breathalyzer test. The bad news is, this is just one more blight on an already long record for the 26-year old actress.

Robocop remake started in Toronto with new suit like Batman


The shooting of Robocop remake in Toronto that started last week
New Robocop with new suit has emerged keeping the fans in speculation.The new robocop suit is a little bit like that of Batman. Joel Kinnaman is doing the role of Alex Murphy in the  Robocop remake. In the movie actress Aimee Garcia, who is probably best known for her roles in both Trauma and Dexter, has reportedly signed on for a role in director Jose Padilha. According to Cinema Blend, Garcia will portray one of the scientists who helps bring fallen police officer Alex Murphy back to life. The film began production in Toronto last week.

The Hollywood Reporter states that Garcia is currently filming her second season of Dexter, Showtime’s hit show about a forensic expert who moonlights as a serial killer. Given that production on the aforementioned reboot is currently underway, Garcia may be forced to pull double duty in order to fulfill her obligations to both projects. The seventh season of Dexter is currently scheduled to air on September 30.

Jose Padilha’s RoboCop remake has generated a fair amount of controversy as of late. Fans of Paul Verhoeven’s 80s action classic were more than a little irritated over leaked images of their hero’s brand new design. Since the newest version of RoboCop is a lot sleeker and less robotic that its predecessor, those who consider the original film to be one of the greatest motion pictures in history have been extremely vocal about the alterations.


“The original Robocop looked like a robot, this one looks like a guy in a suit,” one Reddit user bemoaned. “I had no doubt that the original Robocop was just a dude’s face and torso stuck inside a machine. This one just looks like he’s wearing armor.”

Honestly, I wouldn’t want to be in director Jose Padilha’s shoes at the moment. Although he’s proven his worth with several incredible motion pictures — if you haven’t seen his award-winning documentary Bus 174, you probably should — outrage over the very idea of a RoboCop remake has completely overshadowed the guy’s skills as a filmmaker.

Kate Middleton and William began lawsuit aganst Closer Magazine


Prince William and Kate Middleton started the proceeding of legal action against the publisher for publishing the much talked topless photos of Duchess of Cambridge taking sunbath with her husband Duke when passing their holiday in France.

The photos of comely Kate Middleton roiled the royals Friday as she and her hubby Prince William were trying to make a good impression in buttoned-up Malaysia. The blurry but still-sexy snaps, taken poolside last week during “a very hot holiday” at a chateau in the Provence region, also showed Prince William applying sunscreen to the Duchess of Cambrige’s regal derriere.

Outraged, Buckingham Palace called it a “grotesque” invasion of privacy and the couple announced it would sue the popular French gossip magazine Closer, which posted the photos.

 “Legal proceedings for breach of privacy have been commenced today in France by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge against the publishers of Closer Magazine France,” the couple declared in a statement.  Closer’s editor said the young couple were “visible from the street.”

“This terrace looked out on a public road,” Laurence Pieau told The Associated Press. “So they were not particularly trying to hide themselves.” Pieau also told the Brits to lighten up. “For me, those pictures were not shocking,” she said. “Just a beautiful couple, an in-love couple, in the south of France.”

The stunning Stacy Keibler and George Clooney split rumor slamed


British newspaper "The Sun" a few days ago that George Clooney and actress and former wrestler Stacy Keibler, 32, have parted ways. But Academy award winning actors rep slamed that news away and confirmed that he is still off the market and thus off to others.

Total fabrication designed to sell newspapers," the rep for Clooney, 51, told Us in a statement. Stacy Keibler was among the many A-listers in the front row at the Land Rover-sponsored Marchesa fashion show at Lincoln Center in NYC for New York Fashion Week.

The actres stood out alongside such stars as Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Kelly Osbourne, Michelle Trachtenberg, Tyra Banks and Sarah Hyland -- appearing in good spirits and stunning in an ornate, one-shouldered pink mini-dress.

Keibler didn't grant interviews to reporters at the show. After all, late Tuesday, a rep for boyfriend George Clooney was shooting down a new tabloid story claiming a split between the couple of one year. Keibler spent most of her summer by Clooney's side abroad at his palatial estate in Lake Como, Italy.

Katie Holmes at 2012 Style Awards, a public appearance after her divorce with Tom Cruise

Katie Holmes walking into the show

Katie Holmes has been trying to avoid public appearance since her divorce with Tom Cruise but this ended with her presence at the 2012 Style Awards in New York. In late June that she called off her marriage to Tom Cruise after five years and a lot of rumors. Although she’s been seen out and about a few times with daughter Suri, Holmes hasn’t made a public appearance since her very public split…until now.

She in the Style Awards as a presenter, where she handed out an award to designer Carolina Herrera. It was also announced last week that she’ll be the new face of Bobbi Brown cosmetics, something which came as a bit of a shock to fans of the makeup and skincare line since Brown has never used a celebrity spokesperson to endorse her products.

“We had tea in the afternoon, and we bonded,” Brown said. “And then it was, ‘Oh, my God, you would be the perfect face for Bobbi’. We weren’t looking for a celebrity, just a cool, amazing woman who would fit with our brand. And she’s just ridiculously, naturally beautiful.”

Holmes has been keeping busy since the divorce, lining up a show at New York Fashion Week for her line Holmes And Yang, as well as landing a job on Broadway, where she’ll appear in a show for the first time since 2008.

"On the Road" north American premier: Chriten Stewart before press again


"Snow White and the Huntsman" hit the big screen in July and now she is promoting her new  film "On the Road." On Thursday she attends North American premiere of her new movie. In the show Kristen Stewart for the first time faced the press following her cheating scandal - but she had a co-star at her side as she tackled the media.

Garrett Hedlund, Kristen's "On The Road" co-star, teamed up with the 22-year-old, as they stuck to just promoting the film."I'm proud of the whole cast in the movie," Kristen told Access Hollywood's Scott "Movie" Mantz. "It's crazy."

"On The Road" is based on the famed Beat Generation novel by Jack Kerouac and Kristen thinks the storyline is just as timely as when it was published (in the late 1950s)."I don't think it's ever been more relevant," she said. "There's never going to be a time when people like that don't exist. There's never going to be a time when like the little outskirt of people that wanted to do things a little bit differently aren't there and that's why it's, in a way, I think it's not about how rebellious they were being for the time or what conventions they were going against, it was so much more than that. It's not about being rebellious. It's about being yourself."

Kristen's performance in the film - as Marylou - already has some buzz with critics and her co-star, Garrett, who plays Dean Moriarty, said he was impressed.

"I'm so proud of her performance and I think everybody's wonderful. Like, everybody that came on was such a fan of Kerouac and the book and the project and a fan of Walter Salles," Garrett said. "Everybody brought their hearts to the role and it's sometimes a rare experience but in this case it's really wonderful."

Justin Biever this time could not stand agaist the five, One Direction

The Smile, May be with hidden pain

Justin Bieber got defeated in the vote race with other five like him, One Direction team. Though he has a rabid pack of fans, but One Direction has at least one million more fans willing to vote for them. The boy band picked up three awards at the MTV VMAs including “Most Shareworthy Video” and “Best Pop Video.”

The “Most Shareworthy Video” category was a fan voted award, and, according to MTV officials, One Direction beat the junk out of Bieber with a gap of more than 1.5 million votes.

Bieber’s video for his new single “Boyfriend” simply couldn’t stand up to One Direction and their uber-hit “What Makes You Beautiful,” which racked up more than 28 MILLION votes.

Not surprising was the band’s win for “Best Pop Video” for the same song, an award presented to the boys of One Direction by none other than pop superstar Katy Perry. You might recall that it was Perry who voted ‘yes’ to One Direction singer Niall Horan when he appeared on the British version of X Factor.

Finishing off their phenomenal awards run, the boys of One Direction claimed their third moonman for “Best New Artist.”

Natalie Portman, like other celebrities, spoke in the democratic convention


Scarlet Johanson and Natalie Portman

Talented, gorgeous, funny actress Natalie Portman, model and singer Scarlett Johansson and Kerry Washington will spoke at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., on Thursday, according to a schedule obtained by CNN.

The actresses are expected to appear together following a performance by the Foo Fighters and before President Barack Obama addresses the convention. After Clint Eastwood's improvised empty-chair skit at last week's Republican National Convention, Hollywood stars are making the appearance as a promotion of democrat support.

In a similar convention on Wednesday Former president Bill Clinton also was present in the convention who portrayed President Barack Obama as a pragmatic compromiser who has been stymied at every turn by Republicans.

The Los Angeles-based Foo Fighters performed at an Obama campaign fundraiser in February. However, some of the surprise appearances may not be set in stone. According to Newsweek assistant culture editor Marlow Stern, a representative for Portman said the actress would not be attending the convention.

Wednesday's convention schedule has some celebrity flair, too. Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas will lead the Pledge of Allegiance before the evening session begins, the 16-year-old gymnast told Politico.
Eastwood's appearance was preceded by rampant speculation after convention organizers released a revised schedule with an open slot before a speech by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. Some speculated Sarah Palin or Rush Limbaugh would be the surprise guest, while others tabbed Tim Tebow, the devoutly Christian New York Jets quarterback. Former Presidents George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush were also floated as possibilities.

In an interview with USA Today, President Obama was asked if the Democrats would respond to Eastwood at their convention. "I think we'll be playing this pretty straight," he said. President Obama added: "I am a huge Clint Eastwood fan. He is a great actor, and an even better director. I think the last few movies that he's made have been terrific."

Michael Clarke Duncan, the giant actor died of heart attack at 54


The gentle giant in dozens of movie Michael Clarke Duncan died of heart attack at his 54.
His presence in the film was formidable, even intimidating: The former bodyguard had a muscular, 6-foot-4 frame, but it was topped by the brightest of megawatt smiles. His gravelly baritone was well-suited to everything from animated films to action spectacles, but no matter the role, a warmth and a sweetness was always evident underneath.

The prolific character actor, whose dozens of movies included an Oscar-nominated performance as a death row inmate in “The Green Mile” and box office hits including “Armageddon,” ‘’Planet of the Apes” and “Kung Fu Panda,” died Monday at age 54. And although he only turned to acting in his 30s, it’s clear from the outpouring of prayers and remembrances he received across the Hollywood and sports worlds that his gentle-giant persona made him much-loved during that relatively brief time.

Duncan died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he was being treated for a heart attack, said his fiancée, reality TV personality Rev. Omarosa Manigault, in a statement released by publicist Joy Fehily.

Duncan “suffered a myocardial infarction on July 13 and never fully recovered,” the statement said. “Manigault is grateful for all of your prayers and asks for privacy at this time. Celebrations of his life, both private and public, will be announced at a later date.”

Britney Spears again in bikini on twitter wall


What if she is an X Factor judge, She loves to do it as she did before. Yes, Britney again posted another photo of bikini body on her twitter wall. "Having some fun in the sun," Spears judge wrote alongside the pic. "Don't want summer to be over!"

In the shot, the slimmed down 30-year-old gives her 20 million Twitter followers a glimpse of her sunny California home that's decked out with an indoor aquarium. Earlier, the singer posted a promo clip of her debut as a new “X Factor” judge where she told a contestant that he has a “nice soothing sound and I wish you could wake me up in the morning… singing!”

Spears is busy prepping for her new gig. Page Six revealed that the pop star was told by Simon Cowell to dress better and clean up her hair and makeup before going on the set. Sources said that after the “Oops, I Did It Again” singer turned at an early taping appearing to not be wearing a bra.

“It was made clear she is expected to be impeccably dressed and made-up for the show,” said a source. “And none of those ragged hair extensions.” While “X Factor” reps deny Cowell ordered the singer to sack her stylist, sources tell us she’s since turned up looking amazing.

Eddie Murphy is in the small screen adaptation of "Beverly Hills Cop"


"Beverly Hills Cop," a new TV show Eddie Murphy is currently working on. This isn't the first we've heard about the planned TV show, but it is the first time the series has seemed like it could actually become a reality. Vulture has learned that Murphy has teamed up with "The Shield" creator Shawn Ryan to develop the "Beverly Hills Cop" series pitch, and that the duo have partnered with Sony Pictures Television to adapt the story to the small screen. Murphy would act as executive producer and also play an on-camera role. That team started pitching the "hour-long crime procedural" to broadcast networks yesterday.

“What I’m trying to do now is produce a TV show starring Axel Foley’s son, and Axel is the chief of police now in Detroit,” he said. “I’d do the pilot, show up here and there. None of the movie scripts were right; it was trying to force the premise. If you have to force something, you shouldn’t be doing it. It was always a rehash of the old thing. It was always wrong.”

The show, which is being called a “buddy cop” affair, will be an hour long, and it may fare better on a network that can get away with a bit of raciness. Murphy is working with “The Shield” creator Shawn Ryan on coming up with a script, and although rehashed movies are a dime a dozen, this is one that could actually work well if it’s done right. As long as they keep the theme song, I think we’re good.

Teen Bride Courtney Stodden reaches 18: Mulling over many porn offer


Teen bride Courtney Stodden
Courtney Stodden, American teen singer and wife of Eugene Victor Tooms of X-Files Doug Hutchison, 52, reaches her 18 with lots of offers from porn producers. Doug Hutchison finally got her legally,but the adult offers that are pouring in has something to think about.

Brazzers, a media company specializing in hardcore adult entertainment, offered the "sexually charged" blond bombshell "a chance to star in four X-rated scenes in the genre of her choice." Mofos.com, which showcases "real amateur girls," wants to partner with the prolific tweeter to throw Stodden an epic 18th birthday bash to be featured on their site.

Another adult site, Twistys.com, said they "find [Stodden] so special it would be an honor for us if she accepted our offer [to perform in a scene of her choice, in an erotic destinations she will also choose] and became Twistys Treat of thee Month. As well, the production company Digital Playground (whose oeuvre include Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge and Top Guns) has invited "the forward-thinking beauty" to work on "a future project with the premier studio in adult entertainment."

But Stodden's hubby needn't worry: Hutchison and his much younger love (whom he wed when she was just 16) have been offered a Babes.com couple contract. The site feels that "the sexually open couple would be a perfect collaboration."

But so far Courtney isn't biting. In an exclusive statement to E! News, her momager Krista Keller says: "She is taking it one day at a time. She woke up today and was flooded with offers. Lots of the porn companies have put out happy birthday videos with lucrative contract offers. She, however, has not giving it much thought.

She is enjoying her birthday with her husband, loved ones and her adorable blue italian greyhound puppy Dourtney! She is having her momager handle all this business as usual." Somehow, it's hard for us to believe that anything is usual here, but regardless we hope Courtney has a great day. Can't wait to find out what her future entails.

"The Voice" is a "rebirth" for veteran popstar Christina Aguilera


"The Voice" the new album by Christina Aguilera is a "rebirth" for the singer herself as she thinks it to be. It is a comeback album after two years and two seasons from this veteran pop star With more than a decade in the music business behind her, the album will be a culmination of "everything I've experienced up until this point," the 31-year-old pop star said in a recent interview.

"I've been through a lot since the release of my last album, being on ('The Voice'), having had a divorce," she said. "This is all sort of a free rebirth for me." Aguilera and Jordan Bratman were married for five years before she filed for divorce in 2010. They have a 4-year-old son, Max.

Her new album's first single, "Your Body," was produced by Max Martin, who also produced Aguilera's last hit, the Maroon 5 smash "Moves Like Jagger," where she was featured. "I'm embracing many different things, but it's all feel-good," she said of the album's material, including tracks that are "superexpressive" and fun, with moments that are "supervulnerable."

The new album, which is without a release date or announced title, will feature fellow "Voice" coach Cee Lo Green and comes two years after Aguilera's lackluster "Bionic," which has sold 310,000 units, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That album featured electronic and dance-flavored tracks as well as pop ballads; it's her only album to not reach platinum status.

"In the fashion that I always like to put forth, it's very self-expressive and it's all heartfelt," Aguilera said of her new material. Adam Levine, Maroon 5 frontman and a "Voice" coach, told Aguilera at a recent news conference for the show that he'd heard "Your Body" and added, "I hate you because it's so good." Aguilera will perform the song on NBC's "The Voice" on Sept. 17. The show's third season starts Sept. 10.

The Session marks the hot and bold return of Oscar Winer Helen Hunt


1997 Oscar winner for her powerful performance in "As Good As It Gets" Helen Hunt has taken a daring step with her hot return in a new film "The Sessions" which is also earning Oscar buzz. The film, formerly titled The Surrogates, was one of this year’s best reviewed films at the Sundance Film Festival, and is the first film of the year so far to get the Oscars buzzing.

In the film, Hunt plays a sex therapist, which is being called her “boldest move” on the big screen thus far in her career. Her character’s career as a sex therapist is a bit unconventional, and takes a hands-on approach. The original title of the film hints to her actual profession, a sex therapist that gets in bed with you to help you work out exactly what you’re doing wrong (emotionally, you pervs), hence the title “surrogate.”

For Hunt, she hasn’t starred in a film that’s gotten her this much critical acclaim since 1997′s As Good As It Gets, which also got her an Oscar, coincidentally.

The film is based on a true story, and pairs Hunt with a paraplegic client played by John Hawkes. For his part, Hawkes is also getting some Oscar buzz all his own, with early calls for a best actor Oscar nod. So far, the film boasts the dramatic audience award, a special jury prize for ensemble acting, and a standing ovation at Sundance t’boot.

The 49-year-old actress goes nude for the role, in which she helps Hawkes’s character lose his virginity before his health deteriorates too much for it to be possible.

The Sessions also stars William H. Macy and Rhea Perlman. It was written and directed by Ben Lewin, and is set for theaters on October 26.

The Fastest server Serena Williams in "Late Night Show"

Serena William with the gorgeous dress

The Olympic gold medal and many more medal winner Serena Williams has become one of the most prolific tennis players of all time. Serena plays with an aggressive play style that has changed the way the game is played and viewed. Her serve is often considered by expert analysts to be the greatest serve delivered by a female tennis player. The power and consistency of her serves is only one aspect of her dynamic tennis game, one that includes a brutal forehand and a striking double-handed backhand.

The famous serve
Recently she visited the "Late Night Show" sporting a skin-tight red dress with a plunging neckline that caused her to call out to David Letterman, "I think I saw your eyes almost pop out there." To which he responded, "Well I think so." The only detail more jaw-dropping than the 30-year-old's Victoria Beckham-designed frock was her giant diamond ring. It was a dress the 64-year-old host felt he had to comment on, even if it meant sounding like a dirty old man.

Letterman: “Wow, Boy do you look great!”
Serena: “Thank you. I saw your eyes almost pop out there.”
Letterman: “Well, I think so.”
Serena: “We can’t have that.”
Letterman: “That’s not the only thing—um, I didn’t hear that.”

And that folks was the beginning of a David Letterman-Serena Williams Viagra commercial.

Prince Harry: Subject of another hot gossip being snapped nude


This is the last but not the least, Prince Harry has turned into a mass gossip doing another dashing job. Last weekend TMZ posted naked photos of this single British royal, 27, partying in a Las Vegas hotel room. TMZ published two photos of a naked Harry "during a raging party in a high rollers hotel suite" at the Wynn Las Vegas resort and casino.

"We're told Harry, along with a large entourage, went down to the hotel bar and met a bunch of hot chicks ... and invited them up to his VIP suite," the celebrity news Web site said. They eventually played strip billiards, a variation of traditional billiards in which players remove clothing when they lose a shot.

"Some of the partiers snapped photos of the madness," the site said of the Friday bash. In one photo, Harry cups his genitals while a seemingly topless woman in panties stands behind him. In the second, Harry bear-hugs an evidently nude woman from behind. The site did not identify the women.

Buckingham Palace confirmed the photos are of the 27-year-old younger son of Prince Charles and Diana, princess of Wales.

"Prince Harry has been on a private holiday before he resumes his military duties," a palace official told CNN, a sister news organization to TMZ. The British newspaper The Daily Telegraph said the incident "risks embarrassing Buckingham Palace and raises questions about the prince's security arrangements."

Harry, officially Prince Henry of Wales, has recently sought to distance himself from his early-20s image as a "playboy," the newspaper said. He stood in for Queen Elizabeth II at the London Olympics closing ceremony Aug. 12. He was in Washington in May to accept a humanitarian award from former Secretary of State Colin Powell for his work honoring wounded servicemen and women.

Kobe Bryant's wife Venessa changed her mind about her champion husband


London Olympic, basketball, winner Kobe Bryant’s wife might change her mind divorcing as she recently told "New York" magazine that any man she calls "husband" must be a champion. In twitter Vanessa Bryant posted that she wouldn't marry someone who can’t win rings, but apparently her grip on husband Kobe isn’t all that tight. Vanessa Bryant denied that she underwent plastic surgery after some reports said she sought cosmetic help keep Kobe from wandering.

Vanessa Bryant’s representatives blasted the report as “100 percent not true” and “ridiculous,” the Daily Mail reported. The rumors were fueled by Vanessa Bryant’s appearance at the 2012 London Olympics, where she looked different than previous outings, leading many to believe that plastic surgery was behind the transformation.

Those rumors were fueled by reports from the National Enquirer in which an unnamed source said that Kobe Bryant’s wife felt insecure and wanted to take any measure she could to keep Kobe happy. 

The changes were obvious. Her hair once had blonde highlights but now appeared raven black, and then there was the kicker — her skin tone, lips, brow and the tip of her nose all looked like they had work done. Dr. Anthony Youn, a plastic surgeon, confirmed to the National Enquirer that it appeared Kobe Bryant’s wife had some work done.

It might be telling that Vanessa Bryant may not have exactly denied having plastic surgery — just that she didn’t do it to keep Kobe on a leash. In any respect, the denial won’t do much to quell rumors that Kobe has been straying from his wife. When Kobe Bryant’s wife filed for divorce late in 2011 there were reports that he had affairs with multiple women, Fox News Latino reported.

Just in the last month more cheating rumors emerged to sting Kobe Bryant’s wife, this time claiming Kobe was stepping out on her with  Australian swimmer Stephanie Rice. The swimmer has denied the rumors, saying the two were just friends.

Taylor Olsons's own version of Katy Perry's "Wide Awake" releasing today

Taylor Olson, an artist from Salt Lake City, Utah, released her cover version of Katy Perry’s "Wide Awake" song on Aug 15. "Wide Awake" is Perry’s latest no.1 single from her multi-platinum album Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection. The song is also featured in Katy’s 3D film Part of Me which was released on July 3, 2012. The film is a music documentary of Perry’s career journey. The film grossed $30 million internationally and it is the fourth biggest music documentary ever made.

Fans can download Olson's own version Katy Perry’s "Wide Awake" at http://www.taysings.com. The song is the pop star’s ninth No.1 single of Top 40 radio. Aside from that, this song is also her 10th No.1 on the Billboard Dance chart for her most recent smash hit "Wide Awake". Katy Perry is known for her hit records "Fireworks" and "California Girls."

Katy Perry’s "Wide Awake” video is a classically, creepy take Lewis Carroll’s fairy tale that mixes the fantastical with the autobiographical. This means that this video is a treat to both fans and armchair analyst alike. In this video, there are five important moments that each rife with a psychological meaning.

A lot might have a different interpretation to these key scenes in Perry’s video but there is no doubt that this single has a lot of message and is a definite hit. A lot are influenced by the song and local artists all over the world are making their own cover version of the song.

In contrast to director Danny Boyle’s divisive opening ceremony, which featured performances from Paul McCartney, rapper Dizzee Rascal and rockers the Arctic Monkeys, the closing event had the vibe of Britain’s famed and diverse music festivals, and featured performances by 1980s pop mainstays Madness and the Pet Shop Boys, George Michael, modern rockers The Kaiser Chiefs, singer Annie Lennox and many more.

In addition to the aforementioned artists, London 2012′s closing ceremony also featured comic Eric Idle performing “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life,” which was originally featured in the 1979 film “Monty Python’s Life of Brian.” The track is a popular sing-along in the United Kingdom.

Many more acts turned up to perform at the stunning closing event, including One Direction, Ed Sheeran, Russell Brand, Fatboy Slim, Jessie J, Tinie Tempah, Taio Cruz, Liam Gallagher and Beady Eye, Take That, Muse, Bryan May, The Kinks’ Ray Davies, The Who, performing hits “Baba O’Riley”, “See Me, Feel Me”, and “My Generation.”
