Back to work!

She has spent the last few days chilling poolside but it was back to work with a bang for Rihanna as she got all made up to perform in Atlanta.   Diamonds singer Rihanna shared a topless snap of her getting made up, only covering her modesty with a white towel.   With her hair primly curled the star looked amazing and showed off her rather demure yellow underwear.

The 25-year-old wrote on her Twitter account: ‘Show time!! #DWT,” she wrote. “#ATL is all miiiiiinnneee!!!! I want you on your WORST behavior!!! Tonight is all about you!!! #DiamondsWorldTour’   The Barbados-born beauty has more than yet another successful tour stop to celebrate as Billboard announced that she had broken the record for most pop songs by one artist reaching the No. 1 spot.

‘It’s a big day in Billboard history!!!! We Rihwrite records over here! #youcantgetin…,’ she wrote on Twitter. ‘I owe this to my fans and to Billboard! Thank you for the love! It’s pretty major!…’

Lady Gaga new bleached hairdo!

She’s been lying low since undergoing an operation on her hip in February.   However, as Lady Gaga broke cover in Los Angeles, it appears she may have grown bored with her usual longer locks.   The singer, 27, showed off a platinum blonde bob as she enjoyed a night at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood on Sunday.

The Born This Way hitmaker was wearing white power, heavy blush and winged eyeliner and a white top with plunging back.   Accompanied by a blonde friend, Gaga looked rather sleepy as she rode home in the white convertible.   As she is currently taking time out of the spotlight to recuperate from an injury, Gaga is probably enjoying the rest from her dramatic hairstyles or wigs we often see her sporting.

She previously admitted in an interview that she has to get her hair cut short quite regularly because her locks are in such bad condition from all the chemicals and dye she uses.   The natural brunette told People magazine two years ago: ‘I have to get a chemical haircut because my blonde hair is falling out.’   Gaga was forced to cancel her Born This Way Ball in February after revealing she had suffered a labral tear in her hip.

After undergoing an operation, she had been confined to a wheelchair while she recovers.   She confessed on Twitter that she dealt with chronic pain for several months prior to seeking medical help, but chose to ignore its effects rather than disappoint her fans.   While recovering, she has rarely been seen, but was photographed in Chicago, Illinois, for her birthday last month.   She was seen in a wheelchair while visiting boyfriend Taylor Kinney, who is on location in the city filming the NBC drama Chicago Fire.

Thom Evans shows off his incredible abs!

She may be occupied with her rekindled relationship with Danny Cipriani – but surely Kelly Brook will allow herself a tiny glimpse at these pictures of ex boyfriend Thom Evans modelling men’s underwear.

The rugby player-turned-model looks the very image of fitness as he poses in boxers and briefs for D.Hedral’s Spring/Summer 2013 campaign.

One shot sees the 28-year-old sprawled out on the ground with his chiselled abs on full display another in a clinch with a female model, also in her D.Hedral underwear.

Thom, who has been dating former 90210 actress Jessica Lowndes since his two-year relationship with Kelly ended in January, is modelling the pants as part of the campaign for D. Hedral’s men’s seamless underwear.

The new collection incorporates the brand’s patented ‘Anglefit Technology’. And the pants – made of ‘super-light, anti-sagging, quick-drying microfabric’ – certainly hug Thom’s shape in the steamy shots.

The firm say that their unique new technology gives ‘enhanced figure-hugging definition and comfort’.   The fabric has been designed to stretch depending on the shape of the wearer’s bottom to create a second skin and enhance the appearance of the rear.

The D.Hedral collection is available online from tomorrow.

Rihanna shines bright

Rihanna certainly had an action-packed Saturday.   And she made sure to dress the part with three costume changes for the day’s events, celebrating ‘weed day’ on April 20 or better known as 4/20.   But her final ensemble for the evening’s festivities was the skimpiest and most flattering of them all as she headed to a nightclub in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, after a crowd-pleasing performance for her Diamonds world tour.

The Barbadian songstress donned strappy stilettos for the night on the town.

The black footwear added more than a few inches to her height and nicely showcased her sun kissed legs after her sweaty dance routine onstage just hours before.

She was certain to make sure her accessories caught just as much attention as her toned body.   The Diamonds (In The Sky) recording artist also wore statement earrings as she sported pink lipstick and white nail polish.   And it was a good thing that Rihanna donned the daring outfit as she got a surprise visit from a certain South American Victoria’s Secret Angel just prior to her nightclub appearance.

Adriana Lima popped by to congratulate the singer and blow a few coy kisses to the camera as the two posed for some playful snaps backstage.

The Brazilian model attended the concert in a ripped vest and leather leggings.

Rihanna playfully captioned a snap of the two of them: ‘Only bad b*****s get backstage on the #DIAMONDSWorldTour #nobasiczone.’

In the photograph Lima can be seen affectionately kissing the singer’s cheek.

After her dance heavy performance onstage, the adventurous singer indulged in a 4/20 treat, as evidenced by her Twitter, where she posted a photograph of a cake in the shape of a marijuana leaf.

article-2312497-1968D6D2000005DC-437_634x631

‘What did I do to deserve the epicness that is my fans??!!’ she wrote in a caption accompanying the photograph, indicating that the dessert came from an admirer.

The singer toasted her fans with a celebratory smoke, writing, ‘#420 it’s a celebration b******!! Thank you to all my ft. Lauderdale and Miami fam that came through #DWT #backstageLife.’

Mille Mackintosh shows off her new Mercedes

Millie Mackintosh tweeted an Instagram photo of her new baby on Saturday.   But far from having a bun in the oven, the Made In Chelsea star is revving her engines, in a Mercedes Benz sports car.   Similar to her fiancé Professor Green’s SLS-Class, Millie opted for a SLK-Class Coupé, that has an on the road price of a whopping £30,015

And now, with a Mercedes to rival her husband-to-be, maybe the beauty entrepreneur will start dropping Pro Green off to various events.   Certainly, Millie may well be the designated driver after picking up her new car, with her man tweeting his beer garden activities the same afternoon.

‘Sun and cider’ was all the Professor – real name Stephen Manderson – needed to enjoy the arrival of spring.   But whether this was a purchase by Millie or a gift from her rapper is unknown, but one thing seems certain, that this is the only ‘baby’ the couple will be welcoming any time soon.   Millie and Stephen have enough to contend with, thanks to their doggy contingent and a new house in the making.   And according to reports, a summer wedding to put together in just a few months.   Millie’s Made In Chelsea co-star, Oliver Proudlock, told OK! Online: ‘I think they will get married in the summer.’   If that is the case then 2013 will definitely Just Be Good To Green, as he is not only planning to record and release new material this year, but proudly take to the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury.   With his girl happily watching from the wings.

Marcus Collins Makes a Splash!

After placing second to Little Mix in The X Factor he has enjoyed some chart success. But Marcus Collins is sure to be a hit at the beach as the singer took some time out of his schedule to soak up the sun in Barbados.

Enjoying a day at the beach alongside his former boyfriend David Heath, the 24-year-old left very little to imagination as he made a splash in a pair of red swimming trunks.

Putting his toned petite physique on show, Marcus appeared to be in high spirits as he embraced the lovely weather.

Shielding his eyes from the glare of the sun, Collins matched his black Ray-Ban sunglasses to Heath’s wayfarers as they enjoyed one another’s company.

Taking a seat underneath some palm trees, Marcus and David, who split last February, were seen popping open a bottle of champagne as they toasted to the good life.

Proud of his ripped abdomen, last Saturday the Liverpudlian took to his Twitter account to post an image of himself in his Baywatch-esq trunks.

Not one to hold back on personal compliments, Collins referred to himself as Barbie’s better half Ken as he stood pouting in front of a mirror.

article-2303955-1915B554000005DC-266_634x844

The caption on the image read: ‘Malibu ken off to swim with turtles! Haha have a great day! Bye tweeps x’.   Now that his sunshine break to Barbados is over, Marcus is back under the spotlight as he plays the role of Seaweed Stubbs in Hairspray: The UK Tour.

Opening up about his anxiety regarding the live shows, Collins admitted that he was ‘very apprehensive’ but ‘excited’ at the same time.

He told Liverpool Echo: ‘I’m very apprehensive about it, I imagine the first couple of months  I’ll be running straight to bed and will only be getting up to go to work because I’m going to be that tired.

‘But I’m really excited. It’s something new for me and I believe in progressing as an artist, I believe in challenging yourself.’

 

 

 

Katherine Jenkins gears up for marathon!

Opera singer Katherine Jenkins has hit another bump in the road as she prepares for this year’s London Marathon.   The 32-year-old has found herself coming under fire from Twitter trolls, who have ‘slated’ her as she trains for the charity run.   Taking to Twitter on Wednesday the Welsh star expressed her frustration at what has become quite the uphill battle, after losing her training kit just a few days earlier.

article-2297013-04DB94DE000005DC-350_634x926

She wrote: ‘Some days u just can’t win…You train for a marathon. You raise money for charity. you still get slated #WalkAMileInMyShoes #NoPunIntended.’

It seems that Katherine was the victim of abuse after she demanded a charity donation from an airline after they lost her marathon training kit.   While many people applauded her turning the situation into a way to raise more money for her charity, some heartless Twitter users were less than impressed with her request.

article-2297013-18D5823B000005DC-775_634x662

One wrote: ‘Come on gal, are you that desperate to get a headline?’   While another commented: ‘Wishes Katherine Jenkins would sit down and shut up for a while, she really is a tiresome example of womanhood.’   Despite the unnecessary abuse the hard working star hasn’t let it get the better of her and has continued her training as per usual.

She also took the opportunity to thank all those who have supported her so far, writing: ‘Just wanted to say a massive thanku to all those who’ve sponsored us so far… Your generosity  is overwhelming! #Motivation #Inspiration.’   After venting her frustration on Wednesday she hit the park on Thursday to train once more, which hopefully helped her de -stress a bit.   Taking to Twitter she shared a picture of herself running and wrote: ‘18 miles in the park! Now better get myself to Hamburg – there’s a show 2nite after all! #Boom.’

 

As well as training to run the 26 miles, she is also currently taking part in a European tour with Il Divo.   It was on a flight home from a concert on Sunday that her luggage, which contained her tour costumes and gym kit, got lost.   Being separated from her gym gear after arriving back in London from Berlin, meant Katherine could not do her intended 18 mile run on Sunday night.

article-2297013-18BF7B95000005DC-803_634x865

With just five weeks to go before the 26 mile run, it’s vital that Katherine keeps up her long-distance training.

She tweeted on Sunday: ‘Thank you @Lufthansa_DE for sabotaging my intended 18mile marathon training run 2day by losing my luggage..Hope u’ll be sponsoring me now!’   When it still failed to materialise on Monday, she tweeted again: ‘New day & still no sign of our lost luggage or a donation 2my marathon charity page from @Lufthansa_DE http://www.justgiving.com/KatherineandHannah … #Gesture RT.’   The airline fortunately managed to get it back to her later that day.   The singer will be running on April 21 with the aim of raising £5,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support, who cared for her late father Selwyn when he was battling cancer.
