Celebrity spotting can be one of the trickiest things to do. This is probably the reason why the paparazzi goes on a frenzy trying to get that ultimate million dollar photo that can make or break any of Hollywood’s glittering roster of celebrities.

It would take a trained eye to spot any of these celebrities , let alone go on a full-on stalk mode especially when they have all the incognito tricks under their sleeves .Learning the art of disguise and blending in to evade the peering eyes of the public and the scrutinizing lenses of the media, has taught many celebs  countless ways to go out and just be themselves.

The hoodie, the baseball cap and bug eye sunglasses, floppy hats and even more over the top was Michael Jackson’s mummified get up.  Can’t really blame them for their  futile attempts on disguise, as they don’t always have their best faces on.

Glossy magazine covers can be very misleading, thanks to the wonders of airbrush and photoshop.  You’d be surprised how your favourite pin up celebrity gals look sans the magic touch of a make-up artist and a hairstylist.  Make-up may just as well be  a science than  art, when you see the big difference  of a dolled up face ready for the camera lens, and your celebrity diva in sweat pants , bare faced  and in a mussed up ponytail .

Can you guess who these bare-faced women are?

Rather funny how the world of romance and relationships have changed over the years. The sexual revolution has set so many souls free and at the same time has reversed and flipped  the way we all viewed life and love for many centuries. Who says only men can have all the fun  with women half their age? Why do many frown on women getting involved with a much younger man? Who dictates that norm anyways? Let’s say a woman in her 40’s suddenly becomes single and available after a 10 year marriage ends in divorce.  They say all the good men are taken. Hence, this leaves her with slim pickins of single men in her age bracket. These men be the ones who are either too involved with work and have sworn themselves into bachelorhood, or have gone totally ape chasing around women half their age and  half their waistlines. Who then makes it to her list of eligibles?

And oh,the labels we’ve been living with  That distinguished man in his 50’s dating a girl in her 20’s is reduced to a dirty old man and a foxy woman in her 40’s dating a 20 something man becomes a raging cougar preying on fresh meat. Fortunately, Hollywood always  has something  to inspire us. This reality bite on the battle of the dating sexes has seen many celebrity cougars on the prowl for  a great catch.  Whether they end up with a keeper or just a sleeper, these Hollywood women sure have their game on and some pretty hot boy toy trophies.

Mariah Carey  — rawrrz for this mamita for keeping her boy toy Nick Canon in tow despite their 10 year age difference.

Kylie Minogue –  a breast cancer survivor, this diva from down under seems to have found her second wind and some good love with her Spanish beau Andres Velencoso  who is 11 yrs younger .

Nothing seems to stop the pressure to be skinny for one to look good  these days. Good ole tinsel town has seen one too many transformations of celebrities that have  gone from luscious beauties to just pieces of muscle, skin and bones wrapped in designer clothing.

And although we’re all gung ho about looking healthy, it just leads you to question what does looking beautiful and healthy really mean  for these Hollywood celebrities.  Does it mean weighing less than 100lbs? Or wearing a size 0? Or getting all those muscles to show on camera?

True enough we’ve seen a lot of these Hollywood women morphing into svelte figures  over the years and as short as a month they can just turn into a stick figure with little lady lumps and bumps. Whether roles have forced them to  take that extra effort to lose weight or  just plain glamour pressure that can be unforgiving for any  celebrity whose every bulge and curve gets scrutinized by the public eye.

Well, these women can be real inspirations for us average beings . Knowing that we can transform ourselves into almost any shape and take on a whole new life sans the excess baggage. Then again, not everyone can afford personal trainers, fancy diet food or get into weight loss boot camps. But, we still get to live through our fave celebrities who are just as vulnerable to binging and  excess adipose tissue.

Here are some Hollywood Weightloss Wonders :

Renee’ Zellweger –  Just amazing how this woman was able to yoyo diet to epitomize the characters she played in her much raved about movies.

Carnie Wilson – Nothing but pure admiration for her courageous decision to undergo gastric bypass after years of just embracing who she is and her many great talents.

Kirstie Alley – now who didn’t just have big love for this woman? Having a gorgeous face and a quirky personality was all she needed that made her  a big beautiful woman, that had everyone watch her awesome transformation.

Mariah Carey – post baby bumps and lumps didn’t slow down this diva to get back into top performance shape. However much she admitted to having “some issues” , she certainly  pulled through looking like a very hot momma!

Nicole Richie – watching Nicole seriously drop some poundage left many people in shock as she became disturbingly waif.  Although she’s now looking much more in normal range of body mass, we all guess momma-hood has brought out the best in her.

Lindsay Lohan – we’ve seen her during her peachy teenage years and having blossomed into a troubled young woman, it’s not surprising that she would go through some weight issues as well.  Her nearly stick figure was due to  a habit of not eating at all.


Courtney Love – her Celebrity Skin days have long passed and all that’s left is indeed, some celebrity skin on her abdominal area. We don’t really know how she lost weight, but we’ve got a lot of raised eyebrows as to the type of regimen she had subjected herself to lose so much weight.

Princess Mariah

The 13-year-old is forever in Mariah Carey. She’s always about butterflies, purple and pink, teenybopper ensembles, and princess-y clothes.

In last Thursday’s concert at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, the 40-year-old singer came out on a swing wearing a ruffled princess dress, reminiscent of those sweet sixteen parties on MTV.

It’s no wonder director Lee Daniels nicknamed her Princess Tippytoes. According to Wenn, Lee’s first meeting with Mariah gave him an unforgettable impression of her. “Mariah was born as an embryo in stiletto heels,” he joked. “She walks—even in her home—on her f**king toenails! I said, ‘This woman is not going to work if you’re walking like Princess Tippy Toes.’”


Mariah Launches Her Own Champagne

Smart comeback. After people poked fun at her apparent drunken acceptance speech at the Palm Springs International Festival, Mariah Carey announced the launch of her own special champagne, Angel Champagne by MC.

The singer blames her loopy speech on having too much champagne on an empty stomach that night. “[sic] Didn’t realize they put the champagne on the tables, So we WOULDN’T drink it! LoL. No, seriously ANGEL CHAMPAGNE (ROSE) by MC coming soon!” she tweeted last week.

This is Mariah’s second wine creation. Mariah Zinfandel was launched in 2006, after she invested in the Mariah Vineyard Zinfandel, a winery in Mendocino County, California. Angel Campagne by MC will hit stores towards the end of 2010. Cheers!


It’s the Year of the Tiger, according to Chinese astrology. “Rawr,” I say! We spied on Hollywood’s party animals to see how they unleashed their inner tigers (and tigresses) on New Year’s Eve.

Eau de Smores


“You smell a little like S’mores,” says Ellen Degeneres to Mariah Carey, of the new perfume that she’s marketing.

Uh, is that good or bad? On the one hand, you want to smell yummy. On the other hand, most of us want to come off a little more sophisticated than kids on a camping trip. 

“My [signature scent] of course, is gin and Marlboros,” jokes DeGeneres.



After arriving at San Juan, Puerto Rico earlier this week in a very flashy outfit, Jennifer Lopez went with a more casual number as she made her way to a press junket for upcoming film El Cantante.

Lopez arrived with rodent-faced hubby Marc Anthony in New York on Wednesday to set out for more promo for their latest work.  Is it just me, or is J.Lo kinda pulling a Mariah Carey with that outfit?



You know, that’s what I need, a personal umbrella holder.  Must be nice to get out of the rain & still hold on to your Gucci bag & Starbucks.

Singer Mariah Carey was seen with her own umbrella holder by her side as she takes cover in Paris while arriving at the front door of the Hôtel de Crillon on Wednesday.

Mariah doesn’t seem to age, does she?  But then again, if we got up a little closer, we would probably start seeing beyond the inch-thick makeup…



Mariah Carey Confesses All in Playboy


Mariah Carey decided to spring for the March edition of Playboy magazine & boy has she told all this time.  From Carey’s 2001 breakdown to her Eminem dating drama, Mariah spread out the truth (& her legs) to Playboy.  Enjoy these little snippets, thanks to Us Weekly.

On Mariah’s 2002 Breakdown:

“What happened was that people made a big deal of when my old publicist pulled the microphone out of my hand because I was venting about Howard Stern. Howard Stern had said a lot of mean stuff about me that morning, as he does about everybody every morning, and I think it really got to me. So I gained five pounds. It’s not the end of the freakin’ world. But I was exhausted, and I did collapse later. Then everybody blew it out of proportion.”

On Waiting for an Eminem Apology:

“Something is clearly askew with him, and I’m not quite sure what it is. I just heard something else he recently said about me. I’m curious as to why he’s so obsessed with me. I never got an apology letter, by the way; I don’t know what they’re talking about. Then again, I wasn’t exactly searching my mailbox for it.”

On American Idol:

I know everybody thinks I’m the poster child for American Idol, but I was really shy when I first came out as a performer….Randy Jackson of American Idol has worked with me since my first record. I’ve known him for so long, and now he’s a huge star. It’s just weird to me. We’ll get mobbed walking down the street. You know how the band is introduced at a show? My little joke used to be that he was Michael Jackson’s brother, and the crowd would believe me and go crazy.

On Mariah’s Wardrobe Malfunctions:

Oh please, there have been so many. On this tour there was a really bad malfunction… It was this little top with a hook and eye on the front. It was a nightmare. The top was so tight that night because we girls have moments when the top might be tighter, but I caught it, and that’s how you know a pro.

On Her Horrendous Movie, Glitter:

I try to avoid it. Actually, I don’t mind it. There are moments that make me laugh, and I don’t care…. Glitter was such a bomb, but no one ever pointed out that it came out around September 11, 2001.

You tell me- What else should Mariah Carey have come clean on in the March issue of Playboy?

Thanks to Us Weekly for the fabulous images.
