Victoria Secret’s New Scent: Love Rocks

Take whiff of the new VS scent, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Their website describes it as “Wild at heart. A punk princess. Rock chick meets très chic in this rebellious riff on vivid plum, hypnotic violet and sensual vanilla, the latest addition to our glamorous Sexy Little Things fragrance collection.”

I would’ve thought they were describing a Gossip Girl character. Well, lo and behold! Actress Taylor Momsen, wearing a rock chick outfit, hosted the Love Rocks launch held at Victoria’s Secret Soho store just last night.

She showed off the perfume’s rock ‘n roll packaging: a bold red lacquer bottle adorned with tattoo-inspired graphics, and a removable black leatherette rosette that you can throw on as an accessory. I want one of those!

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.

There’s nothing like watching Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest live on ABC at the comfort of your living room with a bucket of popcorn while secretly envying those who went out to party.

Cheers from Celebrific!


Jingle Belles

Here’s an early Christmas treat for everyone—a gallery of hot musicians who rocked out at Capital FM’s Jingle Bell Ball at the O2 Arena in London on Saturday and Sunday.

The musical extravaganza catered to all types of fans. R&B/hip-hop lovers grooved to the tunes of Ne-Yo, Flo-Rida, Janet Jackson, and Dizzee Rascal. Boy band hysterics partied like it’s 1999 with Westlife and the Backstreet Boys. The Sugababes, JLS, and Pixie Lott showed off their UK flair with their latest hits. The Noisettes and Metro Station added some rock flavor to the scene.

The event’s showstoppers were the sexy popstars who dressed like it’s the last day of 2009. There was Lady Gaga who proudly made it to Santa’s naughty list, thanks to her “cherry, cherry, boom, boom” bikini. There was teen sensation Miley Cyrus who raised eyebrows with another provocative outfit. The Saturdays opted for skimpier costumes for their performance. Shakira’s hips didn’t lie as she performed “Whenever, Wherever” onstage.

The two-day show was a success, if you count the 16,000 people who attended day two alone. Fans of all ages uploaded their personal accounts of the event on Capital FM’s website.

Mika Wows LA

British-Lebanese performer Mika returned to Los Angeles last week to prove that he still has it. The audience were treated to a night full of antics and happy music, much to their delight. Mika has just released his second album, but also performed a lot of songs from his debut album.


It’s like a Bono humanitarian concert for teens and tweens. We Day is an annual youth empowered rally by Free The Children, an organization that aims to fight child labor. This year, We Day started out in two different venues and dates in Canada—September 29 at Vancouver’s GM Place and October 5 at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre. The third and final set will be on November 5 at the Hamilton Place.

Some 16,000 students and teachers attended the musical event. Guest performers such as The Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, Hedley and dancers from So You Think You Can Dance Canada were received with ear-splitting cheers from the crowd.

The event wasn’t just about a cool concert. The kids and teens in attendance were in full support of the organization’s cause—to make tangible actions that make a better world, especially for children. Humanitarians, environmentalists, motivational speakers and politicians were greeted like rockstars at the event.

SOS call: The Jonas Brothers made a surprise appearance.

Justin Bieber performed the acoustic version of his hit “One Time” at We Day.

“We share with our team and we truly believe it’s not about us. It’s about the issues and we share that with all the young people,” said Marc Kielburger, one of the founders of Free The Children. “We’re just happy that the young people feel that it’s really cool to get socially engaged and what we’re fighting most of all is we’re fighting apathy.”

“Everyday action is our message and people respond to that message because they’re really searching to bring about a positive change in this world,” added co-founder Craig Kielburger.

With the success of the rally, it looks like the kids heard the message loud and clear.

The best place for celebs to show off their hot designer duds is in the VIP section of fashion shows. Check out these Hollywood fashionistas who managed to steal the attention away from the catwalks at the Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2010. Who wins your vote for best dressed?

Madonna Turning Paranoid?

The Material Girl thinks that other performers are out to copy her moves. She says that J-Lo was at her concert and watching her super closely – probably wanting to pick up a tip or two. I think she should be flattered!


The celebrity couple are taking collaboration to a whole new level. They are the hosts to the upcoming Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo. The show will take place on December 11 and will also feature a host of performers. Why the couple? Organizers say they are the perfect ambassadors for peace. I wonder what the Jolie-Pitt brood are thinking.


In last year’s Emmys, five reality stars emceed the show. It was so disastrous that I forgot who they were, and I supposed, so did you. And boy did the producers make up for it this year! TV actor and Broadway star Neil Patrick Harris was hailed for his superb hosting skills and opening performance at the 2009 Emmy Awards.

Reminiscent of his Tony Awards performance this year, NPH’s opening act was a song-and-dance number that didn’t disappoint. Never mind that he didn’t win Best Supporting Actor for How I Met Your Mother. If you missed it, view it here:

His hosting was so good that when Jeff Probst accepted his award for Best Reality Host for Survivor, he said in his acceptance speech: “Neil Patrick Harris, THIS is how you host the Emmys. Nice job.” Now I remember. Jeff was one of the five hosts in last year’s show.

If that wasn’t enough, Jon Stewart, who accepted the Best Variety, Music or Comedy Series award for The Daily Show, paused in the middle of his speech to compliment NPH on doing a great job.

As for the winners that night, there wasn’t much surprise as most of the awards were given to the same winners as last year’s Emmys. See the full list here.

“The Emmy cast with Harris in charge not only was remarkably stylish, fun and brisk but could even make viewers forget last year’s disastrous format with five hosts, none of whom could rise to the occasion,” commented Frazier Moore of the AP.

First the Tonys, and now he saves the Emmys. What’s next for NPH—the Oscars?

Pink And Her Funhouse Tour

Pink may have kept a low profile in the past few years, but she is definitely back. She just launched her tour last week, dubbed Funhouse, in support of her new album. The tour continues till the 5th of October, so you can still catch her. We love Pink!


Beyonce Set To Conquer Malaysia

Despite lots of protests, Beyonce is going to Malaysia to perform. Two years ago, she had to cancel a gig due to the concerns of the conservatives about her sexy get ups during concerts. This time around, nothing’s gonna stop her. We’re behind you!


Kelly Clarkson is set to entertain the people of Los Angeles on September 14 at the Hollywood & Highland complex. She will be performing in a free concert, which is the last leg of the Samsung AT&T Summer Krush concert tour. The venue has space for 5,000 people so if you’re a Clarkson fan, better get your tickets here.


Jamie Foxx
Actor-singer-comedian Jamie Foxx is currently on his “Blame It” tour, and two days before the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, he brought laughter to the people of New Orleans. Part of the proceeds of the concert will be donated to Brad Pitt’s foundation, Make It Right.


MJ Fan
Filmmaker Spike Lee threw a birthday bash for the late Michael Jackson in Brooklyn. He would have turned 51. Countless fans were present; DJ Spinna played. At first, it looked like the weather would not cooperate but everything turned out fine for the thousands of fans who were present to celebrate the life of their idol.


While the English brothers have gone their ways, the Irish band Cranberries are coming together after a 7-year break. The band is going to go around Europe and then cross the sea to North America. Fans can expect classics like Zombie and Linger and some new pieces of music as well.
