Nicki Minaj shares new ad promoting her latest fragrance “Minajesty”

Yesterday afternoon pop princess Nicki Minaj shared the latest ad for her new perfume, Minajesty, via Instagram. She stands, arms outstretched, in front of a golden throne.

Next to the image she wrote: “Here’s an exclusive look @ the ad for my new fragrance MINAJESTY. It hits stores on 9/15.”

Three weeks ago, Minaj posted a picture of herself via Instagram wearing the outfit, obviously backstage at the Minajesty photoshoot, although she did not give any clues as to what the shoot was for at the time.

Later she began posting images of the distinctive perfume bottle, which is a miniature version of the songstress.

Describing the scent, she said: ‘#Minajesty smells like a passionate love affair. Mysterious and sexy. An unforgettable and hypnotizing scent.’

I actually really liked her last fragrance, ‘Pink Friday.’ Can’t wait to check this one out!


Lady Gaga covers V Magazine: “Does anyone really know what I went through to get here?”

Lady Gaga covers V Magazine for the bazillionth time. They love her… Lady Gaga is EVERYWHERE these days. I’m already sick of her, and her album isn’t even out yet. She’s promoting HEAVILY the new album, and here’s more of that.

There will be 4 Gaga covers, and V Magazine has only released two so far. I actually don’t mind them – and the one above isn’t half bad! She looks like Joan Jet. Or Kristen Stewart playing Joan Jet. I can’t tell. There isn’t much from the interview yet, but here’s what I’ve got.

She wants to be many icons, in many forms: “I thought about Pop Art and how the dominant subject matter was always the celebrity or the pop-culture icon on the canvas, and then I thought to myself, But what I have tried endlessly to become through my work is a celebration of my differences through art, with myself as the canvas, as opposed to me as the subject matter, being put on the canvas. I don’t want to be an icon in just one form. I want to be an icon in many forms. So that’s where it began.”

Her look on the cover: “That look was very hard for me because that is how I looked when I was 19 until I was 21 years old … Maybe longer. I got my hair cut like that when I was 18 and all these really painful things happened during this time.”

She has the ability to endure pain: “I have an ability to experience pain for long periods of time – to endure it, whether it’s mental pain or physical pain. I think it’s because of my discipline as a child. I studied piano and then theater and then dance, so I have this ability to endure long periods of pain. But as a result, when I became an adult at 18, I allowed myself to stay in bad situations because I was able to take the pain. Although I was able to withstand a challenge for that period of time in my youth, the results were destructive. I was left a shell. Does anyone really know what I went through to get here?”

Overcoming an eating disorder and a drug problem: “Art was always the thing that drove me forward in these challenging and painful circumstances.”

This girl really drives me nuts. I think she’s so pretentious it’s painful. I think there must be a better way to handle fame and whatnot than what she does. I’ve gotta hand it to her – it DID get her to where she is now…. but I find myself rolling my eyes at her constantly.

Yesterday she released an incredibly bizarre video of herself telling us to not buy into all the criticism over her new single. She also tweeted this: “Dont focus on ANY blogger criticism. I have been a producer/songwriter/musician for over 10 years. Trust the artist bloggers are not critics… #STOPHarassingTheArtist we are here to entertain you.”

Yesterday afternoon she stepped out with a bunch of paint all over her face. All in the name of art, of course. Zzzzz.

Above is the most-clothed picture of Gaga – after the jump there are MANY MORE NSFW PICS! More »

Kim Kardashian obsessed with weighing 115 pounds, refuses to leave house until it happens!

Can you believe it’s been TWO FULL MONTHS of Kim Kardashian being holed up in her house? I guess we’ve had plenty of Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga to fill the void she left behind.

Tomorrow will mark two months since Kim gave birth to her daughter North West, and US Weekly is reporting that the reality star is “obsessed” with getting back to her pre-baby weight of 115 pounds (like above) before stepping out again. I knew we wouldn’t see Kim until she lost her baby weight, I said it from the beginning. She’s way too vain for that.

Kim has been hiding out at her mom’s Hidden Hills, CA home, and is said to be “extremely self-conscious about her current body.” So freaked out, in fact, that she didn’t even attend her sister Kylie’s sweet 16 birthday party at Nobu on August 10. She claims she couldn’t find a sitter – but I think we all know that’s pretty much BS.

According to sources, Kim “said when she comes out and gets photographed for the first time she wants to look hot, hot, hot.” She was 115 pounds before she got pregnant, and she’s determined to get back there. She’s already lost 30 pounds, and would like another 30. “The weight is not coming off as quickly … she plateaued … this is the hard part now.”

Baby daddy Kanye West is apparently being amazing through the whole thing. He loves her curves, and doesn’t care if she loses it. “Kanye has been supportive and there for her, but this is more about Kim being inside her head and obsessed.”

“She’s always complaining about her size,” the insider added. “She says she hates the way she looks and won’t go out again until she is skinnier.”

We won’t see Kim for a while STILL.  “She thinks it will take at least another month to get to where she wants to be,” the source said. “Only when she’s there will she start thinking about showing her body to the world.”

Wonder when we’ll finally see that baby of theirs!

Jennifer Garner lands the September cover of Allure Magazine, talks Ben & Botox!

Jennifer Garner may be married to one of Hollywood’s biggest actors, but she wants you to know she’s still her own unique person. In the September issue of Allure Magazine, the 42-year-old actress reveals that she sometimes attends events without husband Ben Affleck in a bid to keep her individuality.

“It’s a very conscious decision,” she admitted. “It can be too much, I think, especially for women. They can really lose their identity and just become ‘wife of. Sometimes it’s a pain because my heels are so high and it would be nice to have his arm. And he’s such a great date!”

Jennifer and Ben, who have three children together,  met on the set of 2003’s “Daredevil.” Even though they starred together onscreen once, Jennifer says she never wants to do it again. “Really, you don’t want to see a couple onscreen,” she said. “People see paparazzi shots of us together all the time. There’s no mystery. … People are sick of us.”

She also confessed that she’s not interested in taking roles that requires her to make dramatic changes to her body. “There were times I had to watch every calorie that went into my body. Doing something like that again…it’s not exactly on the top of my list.”

She’s also not interested in Botox. “I have a big forehead, and I don’t want it to be like this slab, a big glacier.”

I love her. I always have…. started with ‘Alias’ and has continued since then. Sunday night I made my 11-year-old son watch ’13 Going on 30′ with me – and I realize how unbelievably gorgeous she is. She’s just so cute, and so beautiful, and seems SO down to earth. Having three kids in Hollywood – you still never see her with a nanny (which I really appreciate). She’s just do darn cute!

PS: My son LOVED the movie. :)
