Mortdecai London Premiere 19th January

I was pretty lucky this week as I managed to bag myself Mortdecai premiere tickets (hooray!). After years of swooning after the agelessly beautiful Johnny Depp, I finally got the chance to see him in the flesh, alongside a viewing of his new comedy starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Ewan McGregor. 

After filing on to the red carpet with a group of competition winners, catching a peep at Johnny (amongst his rather large entourage) and snapping a few selfies, we took our seats inside the Empire at Leicester Square.  

Feeling pretty bloody awkward on the red carpet.

The free snacks and IMAX itself made the experience enjoyable and before the showing, director David Koepp introduced the film, joined by a couple of shy waves from Mr Depp. 

The film itself oozed Peter Sellers in respect to its comedy- extremely silly, often slapstick heavy, Johnny Depp really did carry the film a large proportion of the time with his character of Charlie Mortdecai, an aristocratic art dealer caught up in a race to recover a stolen painting. 

Kudos to Paul Bettany, whose role as a cockney manservant also carried a lot of the movie, however I felt a fusion of Nazi gold, angry Russians and dodgy art dealing was perhaps a 'been there, done that' plot. 

Those elements aside, a brilliant evening out and I recommend going along to Leicester Square to see a premiere, even if it is just to gaze at the stars...

Miley Cyrus Says Masturbating Keeps the Haters Away

Ever so slightly NSFW....

As if her naked pictures weren't enough, Miley Cyrus seems to be attempting to shock the world further with a suitably weird image of her hand down her shorts. WTF?! 

I'm totally divided on this issue- my brain is battling between wanting to puke at the site of Cyrus' latest stunt, and comparing it to Nick Jonas' crotch grab which was labelled 'hot'. Hypocritical? 

Taking to Instagram to share her rather bizarre knowledge, she claimed "a masturbate a day keeps the haters away". NICE. 

Fans of the star reacted in comments such as 

"Hannah Montana was way better than the real Miley Cyrus" 

Another said "OH MY SH*T she's lost it" 

"You need help. What ever happened to self-respect & class?"

Should we be shocked, or should we just put it down to her personality? Compare it to Gaga: We all got a bit bored of her wardrobe changes after a while, perhaps we will grow numb to this. But is that necessarily right?! 

This week she shocked her followers with a COMPLETELY naked picture of herself in the bath *OMG* for V Magazine. She also shared other raunchy snaps from the shoot, one with the caption below. The pictures were taken down, but obviously I have them (also below).  

""@vmagazine exclusive #diaryofadirtyhippie order yurrrr copy nowwwww cumzzzz w ol school pull out postahhhh photography by @cheythom f--k yaaaas weez a bunch of happy hippies ova hurrrr! Muah Vfam!,

If someone could get back to me with a translation on that, it would be greatly appreciated.

Is Beyonce Pregnant? Do We Care?

Everyone is all in a buzz about the possibility of a new Bey-by (see what I did there?), but could the songstress actually be expecting her second child? 

Whether an act to get attention, or an innocent trip to the beach, Beyonce posted an image of herself buried in the sand this weekend next to daughter Blue Ivy, with what appears to be a sandy form of a baby bump. 

Should we expect that she is expecting? Is she trying to tell us something not so cryptic? and do we actually care? 

*cough* attention seeker *cough*

P.S: Have you noticed we hardly ever see Blue Ivy's face? weird.

Everything You Need To Know About the Golden Globes

Hurrah for the coming of awards season, kicked off last night with The Golden Globes as stars from around the world descended to celebrate another year of film. Here's all you need to know about the night.  

Benedict Cumberbatch's Photobomb

After successfully photobombing U2 at the Oscars last year, Mr Cumberbatch is back on form as last night he managed to get involved in a snap of Meryl Streep with Margaret Cho who played a North Korean general. Priceless. 

Stars Held Up 'Je Suis Charlie' Signs

It was wonderful to see solidarity at this year's Golden Globes, and stars turned out to show their unity by holding signs reading 'Je Suis Charlie' in the wake of the Paris tragedies. Other stars to hold up signs included Diane Kruger, Patricia Arquette, Cathy Bates and Amal Clooney, who wore a badge on her clutch. 

The Brits Did Well

Eddie Redmayne, Ruth Wilson and Joanne Froggatt (Downton) all won awards last night, most notably Redmayne's for his role as Steven Hawking in The Theory of Everything. 

Taylor Swift Partied With Her BFFs

Amongst the married couples, new loves and mums-to-be, songstress Taylor Swift arrived with her posse of gals to celebrate the Golden Globes in style. Joining her were Selena Gomez, Lorde and Lena Dunham. Who needs boys huh? 

Chrissy Teigen Won the Award for Best Cry Face

John Legend's wife had a pretty emotional response to his Golden Globes win last night, and her reaction went viral. Rivalling that fugly Kim K cry face, Teigen took it in her stride tweeting "it's been 5 minutes and I'm a meme", followed by a silly faced selfie with her husband. 

George Clooney Recycled His Wedding Tux 

Back in September, silver fox George Clooney wed Amal Clooney in Venice in front of their star-studded guests. Backstage last night he admitted his outfit was exactly the same as his wedding attire, but more adorable was his acceptance speech: 

"It's a humbling thing to find someone you love. Even better if you've been waiting your whole life...Amal, whatever alchemy it is that brought us together, I couldn't be prouder to be your husband."


Conchita Wurst Took to the Red Carpet

One word: Fierce. Wearing a velvet, emerald green piece, Conchita sauntered down the red carpet looking pretty darn classy. 

The Realisation that Jessica Chastain and Amy 

Adams Look So Similar

Do you know what I mean?! 

Can We Just Talk About Colin Farrell's Moustache? 

Sleazy 70's detective comes to mind...

In other news: Kevin Spacey dropped the F Bomb and J Lo got complimented on her chest by cheeky chappy Jeremy Renner.

Best and Worst Dressed at The People's Choice Awards 2015

Best Dressed 

Olivia Munn
Olivia Munn stunned in this glittering monochrome number, with varied horizontal stripe thicknesses to compliment her figure. She dressed down the look with a casual pony and plain black stilettos. Perfection. 

Chloe Moretz 

Who knew mesh and leather were kissing cousins? ChloĆ© Mortez really is coming into her own style-wise, and I love this oxblood-black buttoned mini skirt she teamed with a white mesh top. The vintage accents in both pieces fuse them together into an ideal ceremony outfit. 

Ginnifer Goodwin
Oh Marilyn! I love how Ginnifer Goodwin chose an ankle-grazing '50s style dress in a crisp white shade- it perfectly juxtaposes her raven hair, and the 3/4 length sleeves are very slimming. 

Sarah Hyland
Actress Sarah Hyland was a true bejewelled beauty as she arrived at last night's People's Choice Awards in Christian Siriano. Embellished from top to toe in high voltage metallics, the sheer bottom half of the dress also allowed her to show off those amazing pins. Go girl! 

Kat Dennings 

I'm loving the return to retro right now, and Kat Dennings go it spot on with her black lace piece. With statement frilled shoulders and a floor length composition with her body tidily packed away in a mini dress, she really shone. 

Katherine McPhee 

Move over Kim K, there's a new Balmain beauty on the block. I am such a huge fan of this modest, yet chic co-ord created by the French designer. From it's eye-blurring horizontal-striped skirt, to it's colour-combining halter, McPhee showed what monochrome was made of. 

Melissa McCarthy 
I love actress Melissa McCarthy and thought this navy trouser suit was given an extra edge with a subtle leather trim and some vibrant rouge. 

Worst Dressed

Anna Faris 

What kind of flamenco-esque flop is this? Just like the movies she signs for, this two-piece is pure tat. Frills are for clowns! Oh wait... 

Portia De Rossi 

I'm really not a fan of this geometric cobalt blue jumpsuit by Zuhair Murad. Cut-outs are trickling away from the catwalk and it was a wrong move to team the piece with nude stilettos as they are swallowed by the strength of colour in the outfit. 

Ellen DeGeneres
I'm afraid Ellen Degeneres looks more like a tennis player, than a talk show host. The sickly off-white hue of her jacket sadly extends to her trousers and her trainers. Matchy matchy= pukey pukey.

Kim Kardashian Bitter About Younger Sister Kendall Jenner: " I Bought Her A F**king Career"


Looking at the Kardashian/Jenner family in perspective, you could say that teenagers Kendall and Kylie have made a more graceful entrance into showbiz than their half sister Kim Kardashian. As season 10 of hit series Keeping Up With The Kardashians approaches, an insightful trailer released showed the Kardashian-West had less than loving words for her model sister. 

Amongst the fights, sex and romance emerged a jealousy for Jenner, who is now at the height of her high fashion modelling career. In the clip, Kim rants to her older sister Kourtney, " I'm not buying her a f**king pair of shoes, I bought her a f**king career". 

The newly made eutrepeneur has walked the runways for the likes of Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana, befriending models Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevingne and has most recently bagged herself a clothing line with younger sister Kylie Jenner. 

The trailer also showed her and new husband, rapper Kanye West make several attempts to get pregnant for the second time. Teasing the audience, a positive pregnancy test is then shown without revealing with whom it belonged to. Hate to be the spoiler guys, but I'm pretty sure it's Kourtney... especially after Kim took to Twitter to dispel rumours with "No I'm not pregnant". 

Bring on Spring! I can't wait for the drama.
