Beyonce's new single ‘Formation’ is bold & politically charged

Written by

Beyonce is back ....

In light of a quiet past year, Beyonce just gave the world life by releasing one of her most fierce and fabulous tracks yet. That’s right, ‘Formation’ is a politically charged single, which references real life moments that Bey is not afraid to address. Her statements are loud and bold and it’s clear that there’s a message she wants people to hear.

Once again, Beyonce has found a way to re-invent herself. Lyrically, her swagger is on point while she speaks directly to her haters and not so subtly brags about her wealth.

To know ones surprise, ‘Formation’ was tight lipped and launched with little warning. Simultaneously fans where informed by Instagram, her website and Tidal.

In no way is the music video or track indirect - as it fearlessly highlights controversial issues. There’s a focus on her history and family and a surprise appearance by her confident daughter, Blue Ivy.

What’s mostly empowering about the singles release is that Beyonce constantly stays true to her voice. She only releases music with a message.

There are obviously things that need to be said and she’s determined to say it.

Hopefully there’s a new album release on the horizon. Queen Bey’s fans are desperate for more!

Miley and Liam spotted 'kissing and holding hands'

Our hearts have been secretly hopeful that Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus rekindled their love after they were spotted hanging out at the Byron Bay Falls Festival earlier this year.

Now UsWeekly has reported that the couple are indeed dating again. The magazine claimed they were 'kissing and holding hands' at a Golden Globes party last weekend.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth in US Weekly

While Miley did not make an appearance on the Golden Globes red carpet, we must admit we have yet to see a ‘Crazy Miley’ tirade this year; no crazy outfits or hairstyles. In fact, Miley’s latest hairstyle is looking suspiciously similar to her circa 2012 breakup look. Could this reawakened love be the redemption Miley needed?

Kourtney Kardashian says this is how to properly eat a Kit Kat

Written by

We have no words.

In this slightly hypnotic video - Kourtney Kardashian teaches us how to eat a Kit Kat. For some reason, she feels the need to share with the world her six step method (which she learnt from Kim) on how to eat this chocolate fav.

We're a little confused because it's completely exhausting to eat a Kit Kat like that. Here at the Fashion Weekly office, we admit there has been times when we've nearly inhaled sweet treats, so this tutorial honestly feels like torture.

The rule here is to draw the line and not do what a Kardashian says. Let's just eat chocolate like normal people, K?!

Katy and Orlando caught flirting at the Globes party

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom flirting

Kado, Peroom... Blerry? Well whatever their couple name would be, we are seriously hot for this pairing to be a thing!

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom were spotted getting friendly and flirty at this weekend’s Weinstein and Netflix Golden Globes after-party. Perry looked radiant in an alluring, busty Prada gown while Bloom looked his usual handsome self in a tux. 

The couple reportedly shared many cosy moments together and danced the night away...

Perry and Bloom were pictured leaning towards each other, subtly touching while and couldn't keep the smiles off their faces. The chemistry is clearly there! Just their body language alone gives us butterflies!

The pair apparently left the after party together. Neither John Mayer nor Miranda Kerr attended the party and we’re sure the ex’s are glad they didn’t or things could’ve been a bit awkward...

This is a relationship we totally ship and we can't wait to see what comes of it!

Written by Jessica Lunan

Australian Victoria’s Secret Angel, Shanina Shaik is officially off the market!

The 24-year-old supermodel’s now-fiancè, DJ Ruckus, 32, reportedly popped the question on his cousin, Lenny Kravitz, tropical Private Island in the Bahamas.

And if the location isn’t what dreams are made of, E! News reports that DJ Ruckus presented Shaik with two stunning engagement rings, which he designed with jeweller genius, Lorraine Schwartz. We guess if he liked than he definitely put a ring on it!

The couple turned to their social media accounts to announce the exciting news to their collective 658 thousand Instagram followers.

“This (love) is a sure thing! I said yes!” Shaik stated on an Instagram post.

“Got the baddest chick in the game wearing my ranggggg,” posted DJ Ruckus.

Things seem to be moving fast for the loved up couple, whose relationship was confirmed in September 2015 when Shaik told Confidential that she hoped DJ Ruckus was “the One”.

The pair celebrated their engagement with their close family and friends on the Island, with guests including Lenny and Zoë Kravitz, then jetsetted off to Dubai for DJ Ruckus’ New Years Eve event. Finally the lovebirds settled in the Maldives to continue their celebrations in tropical paradise.

The first photo of Saint West is driving the Internet krazy

We’re guilty – we love keeping up with the Kardashian/Jenner sisters... Don’t deny that you’re not curious too; whether you love them or love hating on them.

But we will admit, this morning the Internet took their krazy Kardashian obsession a little too far when we all woke up to headlines exclaiming the ‘long awaited’ first photo of Saint West is here!

 

She said, "He's my best friend."

Talk about an anti-climax. As you can see, the Instagram snap is not much to get excited about, yet the web is flooded with headlines like ‘World, meet Saint West!’ and ‘See The Adorable First Photo Of Saint West’ this morning.

When did we become so brainwashed by this family that we can’t make our own judgements on what is actually worth talking about. This makes us wonder whether the Kardashian’s influence over the world will continue in 2016.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth together at the Falls Festival

It’s a great blessing for us Australians; that the Hemsworth brothers are from our soil. Okay maybe that’s a little dramatic, but they are very handsome and we get excited at a sighting of them when they grace us Aussies with their presence.

This past week the Hemsworth brothers – Chris, Liam and Luke – celebrated the New Year at the Falls Music Festival in Byron Bay.

 

Best brothers. Best mates. Best night!!! Happy new year everyone! @fallsfestival @disclosure

Joining the Hemsworth brothers were their other halves; Christ brought his wife Elsa Pataky and Liam brought Miley Cyrus...

Yep you read that right, Liam brought his ex-fiancée Miley Cyrus and of course the Internet is freaking out over what this means. Does this mean they are back together? Have they secretly been dating?

The on-again-off-again couple, who met on the set of ‘The Last Song’ in 2010, ended their three year relationship over two years ago but are often spotted together.

While there are no photos of the couple getting intimate, the The Daily Telegraph reported that Miley and Liam were spotted 'cuddling and kissing' at the festival.

Other celebrities to have been sighted at Falls Festival include Twilight’s Kellan Lutz and model Nicole Trunfio.

Written by Jessica Lunan

Gigi Hadid

Twenty-fifteen was definitely a whirlwind year for our Summer It Girl, and favourite Victoria's Secret model, Gigi Hadid.

When reflecting on her “unreal” year, the supermodel turned to her Instagram to share her emotions, stating that she was “close to tears”.

The post features a collage of 12 of Hadids favourite cover shots of 2015, with her seven Vogue covers making a dominant appearance.

“Both my career and personal journeys throughout (the year) seem so surreal in how each change, turn, and decision guided me to where I stand now,” said Hadid.

Despite her major success and all-round domination of 2015, Hadid mentioned that any negative experiences that she encountered during the year, only made 2015 that much better of an experience.

“My gratitude for all the opportunity I was blessed with this year makes me also grateful for any negative experiences, for what they taught me and for where they lead me,” said Hadid.

Hadid states that the collage “doesn't come close to half of 2015's highlights”, and thanks her hardworking team and friends within the industry for making her amaZayn (Excuse the pun) year.

“I would not be where I am without my irreplaceable team or without the people in the industry who not only believe in me, but show up to work inspiring me every day with their talent, energy, spirit, passion, heart, and drive,” said Hadid.

Finally, the supermodel showed her immense gratitude towards her fans, stating that her over 11 million social media followers play a huge role in her success.

“The way you love and support me and my career is something that still wows me every morning when I wake up...You helped make 2015 a year I will never forget,” said Hadid.

Take a look at Khloe Kardashian's 2015 body transformation

Whether you rate them or hate them, there’s no denying the Kardashian-Jenner family have been dominating the media in 2015.

The frequent target of media coverage, from to Caitlyn Jenner's gender transition, to Kourtney Kardashian's public split from Scott Disick and Lamar Odom's medical issues — the Kardashian-Jenner’s faced many changes and challenges this past year, but they managed to come out of it all stronger than ever before.

The Kardashian that has undoubtedly provided us with the most #fitspo was Khloe. The tenacious Kardashian sister underwent big love drama and public critique in 2014 and picked herself up by working out and getting fit this year - and she looks seriously hot... paybacks a b*tch. This journey has not been an easy one for Khloe, join us as we take a look into what motivated her body transformation journey.
