At Miami Beach last Wednesday, singer Jordin Sparks was sporting an unusual trend—face paint. No, she wasn’t cheering for her favorite Superbowl team; she was making a stand for her cause.
Hereâ€™s an early Christmas treat for everyoneâ€”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 itâ€™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 eventâ€™s showstoppers were the sexy popstars who dressed like itâ€™s the last day of 2009. There was Lady Gaga who proudly made it to Santaâ€™s naughty list, thanks to her â€œcherry, cherry, boom, boomâ€ bikini. There was teen sensation Miley Cyrus who raised eyebrows with another provocative outfit. The Saturdays opted for skimpier costumes for their performance. Shakiraâ€™s hips didnâ€™t lie as she performed â€œWhenever, Whereverâ€ 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 FMâ€™s website.
Lady Gaga was ushered into the venue as Santaâ€™s reindeer. She quickly changed into a red-hot bikini, fishnet stockings, black lace-up boots, and her famous disco stick when she hit the stage for her six-song set. Check out her red-hot outfit here.
Although Halloween seemed tamer this year, we still managed to round up Hollywood’s best dressed. Itâ€™s that time of the year when freakish suits and outlandish getups get our thumbs up. Tell us which costume you loved best.
Toy Storyâ€”Gwen Stafani-Rossdale takes the whole family for some Halloween fun. She goes as Jesse the Cowgirl with her dinosaur-clad tots Kingston and Zuma. Boo to hubby Gavin Rossdale, who wouldâ€™ve made a cool Woody.
Star Wars was the theme on NBCâ€™s Today Show; Anne Curry as Darth Vadar, Matt Lauer as Luke Skywalker, Natalie Morales as Queen Padma Amidala, Hoda Kotb as Yoda, Meredith Vieira as Princess Leia, Kathy Lee Gifford as C3PO and Al Roker as Han Solo.
It’s official! The former American Idol contender is going to be a regular performer in the US leg of Britney Spears’ Circus. Jordin Sparks announced the news in her web site Friday last week. This is a big break for the 19-year-old. Way to go!
