Tom Cruise may still be feeling the effects of his crazy phase but it’s good to see that he’s still unfazed by the effects of his image going south and just figuratively let his hair down and be a normal dude for once.

A lot of tongues wagged when Seal somehow snatched up gorgeous Heidi Klum. The more vicious ones kept throwing the same question out there: how did the singer manage to get her attention?

Dita von Teese was joined on the red carpet by 2012 beauty pageant princesses and nightclub models but she was not daunted by the rival beauties.

“I’m a woman of experience, and not one of them has a waist as tiny or tight as mine in a cinch! “she said before the show. “I’ll pull out all the stops for a raucous, one-off, classic show undressing in a large champagne glass against the fountains of the Bellagio. How can any of them compete with that?”

She was right. They couldn’t and she was the star of the night.

When the clock struck midnight, Von Teese took the stage in an haute couture costume adorned with thousands of Swarovski crystals. She then teased the cheering crowd as she danced around an enormous champagne glass peeling off layer after layer of clothing and untying the corset from her tiny laced up waist. The crowd went wild as Miss Dita Von Teese poured champagne down her body, finally immersing herself into the champagne glass, kicking and splashing champagne.

It was Dita Von Teese’s first burlesque performance in Las Vegas for over a year. But afterwards Von Teese said that she hoped to be back in Vegas soon.

“I’m hoping we’ll be able to bring some of the showgirl burlesque back to Vegas. I’m doing the real version, which is the same way it was done in the 1930s and ’40s; that’s what burlesque really was.”

Hollywood Actors Who Love Cats

Who’s a cat person? Not me, but I do appreciate how people fall in love with their feline companions. I find it amusing how even the coldest people suddenly melt when they are around their cat. And Hollywood guys – tough or not – are not exempt from the charms of these stately (and not quite domesticated) creatures!

Now who would have thought that Guns ‘n Roses frontman Axl Rose loves cats? Apparently, he introduced his cat to the world via his Twitter account, and he had only one word to say “Dijon”. Nice name for a cat, if I say so myself!

At the same time,the singer confesses that the attitude of people in her husband’s life also had much bearing on her decision to set him free .

What’s in Justin Bieber’s Christmas Wish list? If one didn’t believe in Christmas or Santa Claus, then there’s no point to making a wish list eh?
It looks like Santa Claus wont be making any stops down the Bieber chimneys as the teen pop idol admits he was brought up with straight honest facts. The teenage heartthrob says he understood his mom’s logic on the matter of not letting him grow up believing in a fictional holiday figure of Santa Claus. Growing up and then realizing later on that he never really existed would almost seem like misleading him to believe in a lie and well, for some kids that would almost be heartbreaking.
This almost would seem sad to think, knowing how the average American kid would hardly get any sleep waiting on good ole St. Nick with a glass of milk and a plate of cookies. However Bieber says, he made an effort to keep the joy of the season for his friends and playmates a never said a word about this to them.
In the Bieber home, Christmas Day was a day to play a family traditional game of dice and chance in lieu of the usual exchange of gifts between family. The person who rolls the dice and gets double has the privilege to pick a present. And basically this allows each player the chance to either get what they wanted or end up with something totally out of their preference. The singer recalls having ended up with pots and pans instead of a much coveted Game Boy.
This year, Justin gets to spend Christmas back in the great white north and spend Christmas eve with his mom and head over to his dad’s house on Christmas day to spend time with his younger siblings. Incidentally, Justin is promoting his Christmas album with hopes that it brings cheers to everyone.

Despite being himself on TV, Simon Cowell still scores hot brownie points with the chics.  Engaged to make up artist Mezghan Hussainy, we’re sure you would think your gaydar was lightly beeping at some point.  As the world watches him tear almost every aspiring singer into tiny shredded pieces of broken dreams, this man opens his mouth and everyone stops on their tracks. The next reaction would either be a toss up between, running home to cry and hide under a rock …. or throw a perfectly aimed water bottle at him with a side of rotten tomatoes.

The man is simply a death trap for confidence but we’re guessing women find that attractive in a man. While being on American Idol, we’ve seen him cut up contestants and go on constant piss fights with fellow judge Paula Abdul.  The tension between them was pretty evident. Sexual tension for that matter!

Yes there was sexual between these two, but more on Paula Abdul’s part. The 52 yr. old British reality TV mogul found himself in a predicament of sorts weighing out his options on the idea of hooking up with 49yr old Paula Abdul.  Cowell admits that Paula was a million percent into pursuing him for a relationship but the thought of never having it good as the before, and the fact that they couldn’t even travel in the same plane, was enough to let their  dates end in just a good kiss.

Apparently, even  Denis Richards has a wild thing for Cowell, and thinks he’s one major hottie! The two were rumoured to have dated while she was 8 months with child.
