Leave Caroline Flack Alone!

Gorgeous television presenter Caroline Flack is not averse to abuse or indeed opinion in regards to her choice of men (or as the Daily Mail prefer, boys), but should her age really be relevant in the case of love? 
It has been recently reported that the Xtra Factor host is dating Jack Street, a music manager after they were seen this year attending both Wireless and Glastonbury together as well as flirting on Twitter. Their union however, is not what is interesting the tabloids- it is their age gap of seven years that have whipped the media into a frenzy. I keep asking myself WHY? Flack, at 32 is perfectly within her rights to associate herself with a 25 year-old and the fact that The Daily Mail quoted the relationship as a 'new toyboy romance' disgusts me slightly.

If the tables were turned and Street had been the older party, there would have been nothing to write. Society has a warped image of women having a short shelf-life in the limelight, a sad picture for young girls who look for role-models in celebrities. Luckily Flack seems to have a thick skin after previously dating One Direction member Harry Styles back in 2011, who at the time was fifteen years her junior. 

"It's tough. I did not kill someone. I just went out with someone younger. I have developed thicker skin and become more hardened to it. I don't get as upset as I used to, but I am still human."

The host must have been made to feel unusual and outcast in some way to have got to the point of making this statement, a quote I find hardly surprising after the vicious words of the Daily Mail who claimed " the star maintained there was nothing wrong with dating a younger man" as if it were something illegal or taboo.

She rightly defended herself by saying 

"It’s a social thing that people aren’t accepting of big age gaps. Some people tend to see the negative immediately and that's what I find really strange."

"If two people like each other and get on, why does anyone else find a negative in it? I know it's human nature for everyone to gossip. But why say it's bad? No one's being hurt at all in anyway"

So to the haters, and indeed the Daily Mail, I say leave Caroline Flack alone. Putting emphasis on her age is not just victimisation, but sexism too.

Sophie Kasaei Axed From Geordie Shore After Racist Comment During Season Seven Filming

Last week it was reported that two female cast members of MTV's Geordie Shore had been suspended from  seventh season after assaulting a teenage girl. This week Sophie Kasaei has been fired from the reality television series altogether after she made a racist slur during filming. 
Kasaei was recorded saying  “I hate n*****s" last week and show bosses were informed.  She was said to have been devastated and an investigation has opened to determine what exactly happened. 
A spokesperson for the television channel said 

“After an incident last week, Sophie Kasaei was removed from Geordie Shore pending further investigation into alleged offensive behaviour."

“MTV and Lime Pictures have now taken the decision that it is inappropriate for Sophie to return to the show.

“We will be reiterating to the remaining cast members that offensive behaviour will not be tolerated.”

What next for this bunch for tearaways? 
The new season of Geordie Shore Down Under  began Tuesday at 10pm on MTV

Geordie Shore Season Seven Filming Stopped After Holly Hagan and Vicky Pattinson are Arrested for Assault

The most successful reality television show on MTV has had to postpone filming due to an alleged assault by stars Vicky Pattison and Holly Hagan. 
Back in Newcastle for the filming of the seventh season, the Geordie Shore gang were on a night out at Florita's bar with a camera crew in tow when a row erupted. 18 year-old model Hannah Kelso was injured when she was hit with a flying stiletto and eyewitnesses say she was left with blood streaming down her face. 
Kelso's facial injury was hospital-worthy and she was said to have received eight stitches. Pattinson and Hagan were arrested on Wednesday but released on bail pending inquiry. A spokesperson for MTV said that filming has been terminated and the footage from the night removed from the show. 
MTV made a statement that the two stars have been suspended from the show for the time being, adding

" We are very disappointed that Holly was arrested by the police but believe in due course she will be given a No Further Action."

According to eye witnesses 

"Gaz and James from the show were at one table and a group of girls at the table next to them.. Vicky got involved in an altercation with the girls at the table and suddenly all hell broke lose."

Kelso's father was devastated when he spoke to the press about Hannah:

 “I want to see this go to court and I do not want anything to jeopardise that. I just hope the police and courts take action.”

There has been no developments as to why the fight broke out. The new series of Geordie Shore starts this Tuesday on MTV.

Kristen Stewart FINALLY Reveals Her Tattoos

Newly single actress Kristen Stewart is the latest celeb to join the tattoo club. The star visited Tennessee's Pride and Glory tattoo parlour last month to get two designs on her wrist but decided to keep the design a secret. 
The 23 year-old received the four lines logo from 70's band Black Flag on her left wrist, and an infinity symbol on her right wrist. Many have questioned what the tattoos represent and whether they are connected with her break-up from fellow Twilight star Robert Pattinson. The Black Flag logo is said to symbolise the themes of anarchy and isolation, and the band's lyrics centre around poverty, neurosis and paranoia. DEEP. 
She finally decided to unveil the body art while in Paris this weekend for Fashion Week, and boy are those tatts massive. 

No? you don't see it? okay here is a closer look.. 


Ta da!!

Fail! Did Alexandra Burke Get a Misspelt Tattoo?

Tattoos are very much the latest fashion for a majority of celebrities and for former X Factor contestant Alexandra Burke, she could not wait to share her newest ink with her Twitter followers. 
But straight after the star posted the picture of her body art, many of her fans were commenting that they had observed a spelling mistake on the tattoo. Burke received her tattoo at Bang Bang in New York, the infamous parlour that has Rihanna and Cara Delevingne as clients. 
The words 'love and loyalty' can be seen on her left shoulder, however from her initial Instagram image, the word loyalty looks as if it is missing a 't'. Bad times.. 
After much speculation, the singer posted another (un-filtered) image on her Instagram to clear up our mistake. 
The image was captioned:" Had to make sure there was NO FILTER ON THIS ONE!!!!! For those who think its a fail. Go check yourself. Cos it seems to say .. LOVE AND LOYALTY !!!! Now chill out.. "

It still looks like "love and loyaly" from a distance Burkey...

He began his tirade with 

After sexist backlash, Green tweeted: 

He defended himself by telling his followers that Hind 'basically gave out my address'
One of his last tweets was poigniant, if not hypocritical
