Taylor Swift’s 25th Birthday Bash!

December 13. The reason her favorite number is 13. Last week it was Taylor Swift’s birthday! She had already started celebrating earlier in the week with celeb friends Cara Delavigne and Jamie King when they went for dinner in the west village in NYC.

The day before her birthday, she attended the Women  in Music 2014 Gala. Taylor Swift received Billboard’s Woman of the Year award for the second time. Then Aretha Franklin stunned her with a surprise rendition of “Happy Birthday’!

The night of her birthday, after kicking off the z100’s Jingle Ball, she partied it up at her Tribeca apartment with her celeb BFF’s, including Sam Smith, Karliee Kloss, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Selena Gomez, Justin Timberlake and so many more celebs.

The party was reportedly a BLAST, filled with karaoke, booze and food. She tweeted this picture captioned “So this is being 25…. #WHAT #bestbirthdayEVER.”

Cameron Diaz was spotted with a sparkling ring at the Academy’s Hollywood Costume luncheon on Wednesday, leading people to believe she may be engaged. That evening, Diaz and Madden had dinner with friends in Beverly Hills, where she apparently flaunted the ring.

It’s not ‘official’ yet- but really, does it have to be? Its so obvious, especially after they took their relationship to the next level, when Madden moved in with Diaz in her Beverly Hills house.

The couple looks extremely happy, and we totally approve. They seem to spend all their time together, they have been seen working out, going to the beach, and yacht getaways.

The Charlie’s Angles actress has previously dated other hot celebs like Justin Timberlake and Alex Rodriguez. Apparently Nicole Richie (who is married to Joel Madden) played cupid for the happy couple! Congrats kids!

CFC Artists win at Christmas

Our very own CFC Celebs Olly Murs and Niall Horan from One Direction, were accompanied by Demi Lovato and Sam Smith  in this A+ Holiday photo that they took on Sunday. “Check out this tasty #festive4way” tweets Olly, and it obviously goes viral on the internet. They put on a 4-way christmas sweater to celebrate the season provided by Target + TOMS: One For One collaboration.

We’ve been seeing a lot of hanging out between Demi and Olly lately, after just releasing their new single together. Yesterday they performed the song on the X-Factor. We think they are pretty cute together… What do you think?

This Weeks Music Video Releases

For the most part, this weeks music videos have been pretty satisfying. Some amazing videos and some pretty bad ones from people you really wouldn’t expect.

Beyonce  – Yours And Mine

Somehow all of Bey’s video make you feel like you’re learning some kind of life lesson. This video is more like a short film. Its beautiful and different. The words and cinematography edited together has produced a work of art. For this very private star to let us into her very personal life. She talks instead of sings, and she talks about serious things, such as her childhood, her self image, and people’s perceptions of her. It is just breathtaking and it is done in such a beautiful way.

 

Nicki Minaj – Only ft. Drake, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown

Hannah Lux Davis is one of our favorite female Music Video Directors, and boy did she do a spectacular job on this video. Its dark and creepy and were pretty sure it’s a sex dungeon. She’s also obviously wearing some very revealing clothing and very much in charge of the boys. We’d expect nothing less from her anyway.

 

Sam Smith – Like I Can … & Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Lets talk about Sam Smiths 2 latest music videos. Last week he released his christmas song “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”. Obviously sung like an angel, if you close your eyes you will have the best day. If you watch the video you will think “what? WHAT? what is going on?” Why is there a dolly track in a circle when they don’t even circle him a full time. Then theres the poor lighting, and its just plain boring. Sorry Sam, we love you, but we don’t love this video

 

He released the video for his latest single this morning and to be honest, we were pretty disappointed with this one as well. Like we’ve seen before, in the Restart video, you just can’t sit through a whole music video when there is no story. Stay With Me, Leave Your Lover and I’m Not The Only One were all shot so beautifully and with so much detail and care, that these montage videos leave no lasting memory. Its just too bad because this is one of our favorite songs from this celebs album In The Lonely Hour.

This video showcases a bunch of well dressed (maybe gay) men, roaming around NYC with Sam. They end up at a bar, doing shots to celebrate something…. who knows. Just see for yourself – if you can make it to the end.

 

Masterpiece – Jessie J

Brand new video for Jessie J’s third single from her new album Sweet Talker Masterpiece was released this Wednesday and we absolutely love it! Music videos that show real celeb-fan interaction is always so touching. You see Jessie really making a connection with fans as she invites them become a part of her music video!

This is such a great motivational song for whatever you need that extra little push for in your life.  Its a song about overcoming negativity and reaching your potential.

Check out the video here and let us know what you think :)

 

Happy Birthday Brad Pitt!

Brad Pitt turns 51 today! I think I would consider it a birthday gift to be dismissed from jury duty. He showed up today to perform his civic duty at the LA court. The court, however, said his presence on a jury would divert attention from the case. At these times, though, his wife Angelina is home with the chicken pox, so he can go straight home to take care of her.

In other Pitt news, last week, a nasty email between a hollywood director and sony chairwoman, Amy Pascal, referred to Jolie as ‘a minimally talented spoiled brat.’ The outbreak seemed to be so embarrassing for Jolie, that some speculate that she is actually faking chicken pox, to avoid being asked about the issue in public. So During the “Unbroken” premiere in LA, Brad Pitt was accompanied by his children, Pax, Shiloh and Maddox, in honor of their mother, who could not make the premiere.

Cher Lloyd Signs New Record Deal with Universal

Earlier this October Popdust reported some bits of gossip that Cher Lloyd had been dropped from Epic Records after Cher sophomore album, Sorry I’m Late, didn’t fare to well selling.

Cher-Lloyd

The “Want U Back” singer has somewhat disappeared since the news broke, however now it would seem that she may have been quietly working on signing on with another record label this time.

Die hard fans have recognized that Epic’s logo has been taken off from Cher’s official merchandise site and has been supplemented with Universal’s, leading many to believe that she’s inked an arrangement with Universal

The 21-year-old has likewise affirmed that she’s back in the studio, working on some new music, so it would appear that a Cher Lloyd rebound could be in the near future.

Good Luck Cher!

Four-v3_zps279fdbbc

1 Direction made US history a week ago by turning into the first Band to see their initial four studio albums debut at number one on the Billboard charts.

The five piece sold 387,000 records of Four in its first week of offer, coming next just to Taylor Swift’s 1989 for the biggest presentation of the year as such, as indicated by Nielsen Soundscan.
