Kourtney Kardashian wants out of KUWTK

Love them or hate them, the Kardashians are everywhere. But could things be changing?

Love them or hate them, the Kardashians are everywhere. But could things be changing?

The oldest sister of the famous family, Kourtney Kardashian has revealed that she is over it. (wait, what!)

Keeping Up With The Kardashians launched in 2007 on E! and has catapulted the family into success. Since gaining enormous attention, the show's 12th series attracted around three million viewers for its latest season premiere. So it's pretty obvious that the world is obsessed with their lives.

Though Kourtney told Sunday You Magazine that sometimes she thinks she would feel happier if the show ended.

"I don’t want the show to end, but I sometimes think I would be so happy if it did and I could just move away from it all.

No. No. No! This is not news fans want to hear. For many, the Kardashians are almost part of our daily lives. Could you imagine a world without them? (dramatic, we know)

She continued saying, "By the end of every season I’ve had enough, but then once we have had a break I’m ready for more."

"I still feel surprised when I’m recognised in the street. I forget that so many people know who I am and have seen me give birth."

We hope this isn't the end. We need Kourtney to keep up with the Kardashian Klan.

Taylor Swift proves she's the crabbiest celeb

Written by Jessica Lunan

The downfall, or side shuffle, of Tay-Tay.

The downfall, or side shuffle, of Tay-Tay.

Taylor Swift just can’t seem to keep out of the press! The whole Kimye drama, including Justin Bieber’s kind of unnecessary input to the feud, has certainly put Tay on edge. This pressure has led the star to go to extreme lengths to avoid the paparazzi.

The crabby celeb (sorry, we just couldn’t help ourselves) was spotted crab walking into a car post gym to avoid the flashing cameras. 

Yep, crab walking! And it’s honestly one of the strangest things we’ve seen this year (sorry Fur Nails).

And the weirdness doesn’t stop there. Tay-Tay was even spotted doing a strange moonwalk in a car park to sidestep the pesky paps.

Is this proof of Swifts true craziness? (We called it years ago, just saying). That she's forever hungry for the spotlight, or more evidence that she needs to be in control of every situation that she’s in?

One lesson that we’ve learnt this week, thanks to the truth behind Beyoncé’s “Becky with the good hair” lyric being revealed, is that the internet is ruthless and loves to take advantage of any type of celeb drama. And rest assured social media has certainly delivered with the countless of memes that have been resurrected thanks to Tay’s awkward walk.

All we have to say is Taylor, you can’t crab walk away from all of your problems.

How to meet your fave celeb and avoid fangirling

Our insider tips and tricks will have you celeb stalking, or err... celeb meeting like a pro.

Our insider tips and tricks will have you celeb stalking, or err... celeb meeting like a pro.

“So you stalk them?” That’s probably my least favourite assumptive question that comes up when I have a conversation about the celebrities I’ve met. Look, I will admit that in 2012 I met celebrities and collected photos like they were Pokemon but times change, people change. I like to think I'm older, wiser, more attractive, still have my passion for music and meet some of my favourite artists every now and then.

I understand that meet 'n' greet tickets can be expensive and if you have a wide music taste you can’t do it for every artist you like. So yeah I guess the next option is to ‘stalk’. This is a term I hate with a passion, and every time I hear it I think of these particular groups of “fan-arazzi” in Sydney and Melbourne that harass every celebrity that comes to town because they “need it”.

Yes, that’s a real term they use when a celebrity announces they are going to their city. These 'fan-arazzi's meet them and get some photos or albums signed. They then take paparazzi pictures and sell them to the media while flogging the signed items online for an inflated price. Then on the other end of the spectrum you have the actual fans that meet their favourite celebs, have a conversation and appreciate the experience.

So what are my tips on ‘stalking’ your favourite artist but still keeping it sane?

1. Become a ninja.
2. Study the form of stalking and watch a lot of Veronica Mars and Pretty Little Liars.
3. Buy bulk eye drops to make it look like you’re always crying.
4. Car chase them as if it was a scene of The Fast & the Furious.
5. If that doesn't work double as a security guard.

Okay, maybe those aren't the best pieces of advice I have... these are probably the ones you should follow if you don't want to get arrested.


Respect

This is the most important piece of advice I have. Always ask them how they are and have general chit chat first because you need to remember that they are human too. Never assume and always ask them if you can have a photo or something signed. If they say no then don’t be rude and respect that, thank them for their time and leave.

Also, don't take photos or videos of them while you are talking to them or of them walking. That is called being creepy.

Our insider tips and tricks will have you celeb stalking, or err... celeb meeting like a pro.Thomas with Ellie Goulding.

Venues and airports

So where is ‘okay’ and ‘easy’ to meet them. For a musician or band, the place I always recommend is outside the venue after the show. They always have to leave the venue and 7 out of 10 times they will stop and interact with you. I’ve had some hilarious experiences like jumping into a car with Carrie Underwood, meeting Usher on a Segway in the carpark, to a chilled conversation with The Fray, Good Charlotte and Kelly Clarkson. So buy a ticket to the show and try your luck before or after at the stage door or gate.

Now I think airports are perfectly fine to go and meet people when they fly in or out, but it just comes back to the respect tip. Some celebs don’t agree with it, and you have to understand that and back off. I've met Elle Goulding and Anastacia at the airport and the experience was incredible. As I asked respectively they were more than happy to sign my stuff, answer my many questions and pose for photos.

Don’t word vomit

This is something I’ve been well known to do, so let’s not do this. Word vomiting is when you get so nervous or awkward that you blurt out random things that don’t make sense or are just plain embarrassing. This one time I met Alaska Thunderf#!@ at a gig of hers and I went to ask if she was playing her song “P#$$%” that night. Instead it came out as “I want p#$$%”. Here I am an obvious gay man saying to a drag queen “I want p#$$%”. Not the most ideal situation.

Another time it happened was when I met Clare Bowen from Nashville . She was thanking us for waiting in the cold after the show and I was like “it’s okay your voice keeps us warm”. In my head it seemed completely normal but when it came out and I was like what did I just say?! 

Be confident, cool, calm and collected and know what you want to say. Last thing you want to do is freak out in front of them because they will not respond well to that.

Our insider tips and tricks will have you celeb stalking, or err... celeb meeting like a pro.Thomas with Samantha Jade.

Social media is your best friend

Everyone always asks me “but how did you find them” when I post a photo of myself meeting someone in the city or out and about. Honestly, the answer is just social media. Celebs love posting what they are doing, who they are hanging out with or what they are eating. Especially when they are in a new city.

Snapchat and Instagram are great for this as they post in real time what they are doing, so you can easily find out where they are and get a cool candid photo. If you can beat the paps that is.

Be memorable, be you

I’ve created some cool friendships and stayed memorable with some of the artists I’ve met. That’s because I’ve been myself when I’ve met them and haven't over-reacted or treated them like they’re on a pedestal.

Celebrities are just like everyone else. They love to be asked normal questions, love when you make jokes, love when you don't scream or cry in their face and love it when you genuinely appreciate their art form.

Trust me I know it’s easier said than done because I did not act cool when I met Justin Bieber. But now I’m referenced as “the funny guy”, and I’m okay with that.

Oh, Beyoncé's 'Becky with the good hair' explained

Written by

You're not going to know how to feel about this...

You're not going to know how to feel about this...

Earlier this year in April, Beyoncé dropped her album Lemonade and the world flipped out. Her song, 'Sorry' started a witch hunt from the infamous line, "Becky with the good hair."

Months later, (they could have told us about this much sooner BTW) Diana Gordon, (formerly known as Wynter Gordon) told Entertainment Weekly that the line wasn't about Jay Z, Rita Ora or anyone specifically. (Wait, what?)

"The idea started in my mind but it's not mine anymore. It was very funny and amusing to me to watch it spread over the world,” Gordon said before explaining how Queen Bey felt about the song, "I don't think she expected it."

“I laughed, like this is so silly. Where are we living?” she said. "I was like, 'What day in age from that lyric do you get all of this information? Is it really telling you all that much, accusing people?'"

Gordon goes on to say, "I saw her at her Formation tour. She had a pyjama party; we laughed, we danced, we hugged it out. But I didn't say much about it at the time because I wanted to give her space."

"If it's not going to be me saying it, and the one person in the world who can say it is Beyoncé, I was f*cking happy. With Beyoncé, I feel like the songs we worked on were specifically for her."

Finally, the truth has been revealed but we're not too sure how to feel about it. Now that the internet-sphere can move on, we want answers about the Taylor Swift and Kanye West feud - particularly after Justin Beiber is now involved.

So many questions!


Justin Beiber is immature AF amid Taylor Swift feud

Written by

Really, Justin...

jbwtf02

Justin Beiber loves being the centre of attention. And within the last 24 hours he has decided to inject himself right into the middle of the 'somewhat' dying down feud between Kanye West and Taylor Swift.

Just when we thought things were settling, the Biebs jumped on Instagram and posted a screenshot of himself FaceTiming with Kanye West, their shared manager, Scooter Braun and another friend.

Now on any normal day, we wouldn't think too much of it. But it's the caption that has everyone talking.

Because he is such a sh*t-stirrer at heart, the black and white Instagram's comment reads, "Taylor Swift what up."

If that isn't enough shade he was also wearing circular dark sunglasses which just adds to the drama.

Take a look at Kanye's massive, glowing smile (remember he never smiles). He is seriously basking in the glory of his friend sticking up for him.

Beiber has obviously chosen a side in the Swift feud. It just has us wondering how Selena Gomez feels?

Time will tell, and we'll be waiting to see who is the first to strike back...

Why we're so over the Kardashian Jenners

Written by Jessica Lunan

It’s the party that everyone wishes they had an invite to, yet we’re over here being like, seriously?

As the entire world knows, thanks to Kylie Jenner’s Snapchat, it was her Summer Suprises party over the weekend and of course that meant a King Ky worthy party.

If you stayed up to date with the Snapchats by the Kardashian Jenner sisters, you would know that there was a whole lot of krazinesss going on. But are we the only ones who is getting over the klan (especially Khloe) making everything so.... sexual?!

Here’s everything you missed if you’re lucky enough not to be sucked into the addictive lives of the Kardashian-Jenners (please help us).


Kylie Cosmetics everything

We get that Kylie has one of the most successful cosmetic brands in the world at the moment, and we love her lip kits. But is it necessary for everything to be Kylie Cosmetic themed?

[RELATED: Kylie Jenner launches eyeshadow palette]

The kake

That brings us to the cake which was a replica of Kylie’s infamous lips. Was it only us who thought it was something else...? Don't make us say it.

Khlo money

Khloe has always been our fave sister, but lately her overtly sexual behaviour has just been getting a bit too much for us. From seductively licking the icing off the cake (not that it needed any more help there), stating Kylie was a “rich bitch” in her birthday speech, to taking a snap of Kourtney peeing... Khloe, please calm down.

Kimmy K debut

Never the one to be ever overshadowed by her sisters, Kim launched a brand new asymmetrical bob, which looks incredible! Meanwhile Khloe sported her usual braids with interesting purple streaks. With the colour supposedly symbolising sexual frustration, maybe that explains Khloe’s behaviour as of late?

Tyga make out sesh

We get it you’re young and in love. But please stop making out every two seconds on your Snapchat. Please and thank you.

Andy Lee's devistatingly shocking split

Written by Jessica Lunan

We’re not crying, you are!

Breaking news Andy Lee and Rebecca Harding have split. We are not crying, you are.

So far, 2016 definitely seems to be the year of our fave celebrity couples breaking up (who else is still recovering from the Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris split?) Now there’s a new celeb breakup that we totally weren’t ready for. Andy Lee and his insanely beautiful girlfriend, Rebecca Harding, have called it quits!

 

A photo posted by Rebecca Harding (@rebeccalharding) on

Lee casually dropped the bombshell news on his radio show with comedic partner in crime, Hamish Blake, while discussing the gross phenomenon of ‘slugging’ (which is when your kissing someone and their tongue goes limp in your mouth...yep, sorry for that visual).

Lee stated that he no longer was at risk because he’s now single, and we were not prepared! I mean, just look at their cute couple photos from Harding’s Instagram.

"I am worried about you because you know that Bec and I broke up a little while ago and so she was the only one that was going to slug me," Lee told Blake on air, before stating that Blake could still fall victim with his amazing wife, Zoe Foster Blake.

And from that moment our hearts have shattered. Thanks for the emotional preparation, Andy!

Wait, what? Mila Kunis on price of wedding ring

Nobody expected this...

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher give us major couple goals on the daily. But we're not so sure how to feel about this latest announcement.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher give us major couple goals on the daily. But we're not so sure how to feel about this latest announcement.

We know their wedding has been kept under-wraps but nobody expected this. The Bad Moms actress shared her wedding band story on The Conan O'Brien Show. And honestly, it just proves they are the epitome of chilled.

“So, my husband and I got married a little while ago,” Kunis told late night host Conan O’Brien. “He got me a beautiful engagement ring. Like, stunning, stunning, stunning!"

“But for our wedding bands, for when we got married, I decided to just get them off of Etsy. And so our wedding bands are from Etsy.”

Nobody expected this ... Esty, really?

Kunis went on to say, “I wanted the thinnest possible platinum band. So, I went on Etsy and I was like, ‘$90 (US dollars) and I was like, ‘Buy now!'” She later reveals that her husband's band cost a little more at $100.

Yes, you read that right. Basically, in Australian dollars the total for both rings is around $250. It is definitely no Tiffany's, Bvlgari or Cartier. But not everyone wants a huge flashy rock on their fingers, right?

Beyoncé's Parisian holiday is what dreams are made of

Written by

Can we all just take a moment and appreciate that Beyoncé pretty much invented the word 'flawless'.

beyoncejayzparis03

Beyoncé has has once again given us life. This week she released a selection of photos on her website from her latest holiday stay in Lake Como and Paris. Ultimately, it has given us jet-setter envy. (ahh, dream...)

Earlier this month, Queen Bey was on her Formation Tour and performed in Italy and France. Thankfully she has graced us with a few snapshots of her picturesque vacation.

Scroll on Bey fans...

Jay Z also made a few appearances giving us major #couplegoals. The photo in-front of the Eiffel Tower is better than anything else we've ever seen. How do they do it?

beyoncejayzparis02

Let's be honest, Blue Ivy has better style and a rather glam wardrobe then most of us. If that is her phone that she is playing with - then we are done. #Supercute

Well, we don't have much else to say because we are speechless. Excuse us while we go and take a long hard look at our lives.

Kim Kardashian isn't too happy about Saint's first words

Usually Kim Kardashian's gorgeous daughter, North West is out stealing the spotlight. But right now it's all eyes and ears on their little man, Saint West. In today's news, this cutie-pie has just spoken his first words but mama Kim isn't too impressed.

In a recent interview with E! News she opened up about the situation.

 

A photo posted by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

"He said 'dada' today, three times and I was like 'what'?," she said. "Kanye [West] was so excited. He was like 'I told him to say that.'

She continued saying, "I was like, 'I just really wanted him to say momma first.'"

Ahh, even though she was a little disappointed there's no denying she is proud of her baby boy.

Brave Roxy Jacenko on breast cancer news

As Roxy Jacenko prepares to battle her recent breast cancer diagnosis, we reflect on the survivor she has proven herself to be in the wake of personal and professional challenges.

As Roxy Jacenko prepares to battle her recent breast cancer diagnosis, we reflect on the survivor she has proven herself to be in the wake of personal and professional challenges.

PR tour de force, entrepreneur, digital influencer, mother of two, devoted wife and all round boss lady. There are SO many words we could use to describe popular Sydney based PR agent Roxy Jacenko and today, following the distressing news of her breast cancer diagnosis, we can now add fighter to that list. 

Jacenko received the difficult news just days after she noticed a suspicious lump while taking a shower and it has, understandably, floored her. Like a true warrior, Jacenko is preparing to tackle this hurdle head on and hopes that the news will promote awareness of the issue and encourage other women to see their doctor for regular breast examinations.

Jacenko has had her fair share of knock backs in the past two years, with her husband recently incarcerated for insider trading and her daughter Pixie having been the victim of indecent cyber attacks. Perhaps that is what it is like for a high powered business woman living a fast, furious, public lifestyle, but we know that Jacenko is a self-made, clever, driven, hard working individual and our money is on her to win.
We are sure Jacenko will take this in her stride as she conquers everything she sets her mind to with the energy and positivity of an inspiring go-getter. As we all prepare to throw our collective weight and support behind her in this unfortunate set of circumstances we know that Jacenko is a survivor and we are sure that’s just how she would want us to refer to her.

In her recent interview with The Sydney Morning Herald, she summarises what it is like to be human in the face of adversity: "I've weathered the storm in this [ ] situation, only just...I am tough but I'm also soft inside." And we praise her for it. Here’s to you Jacenko, we are there for you in this uncertain time and we know the rest of Australia will be too.
