“I would come off stage in front of 18,000 people and suddenly be alone in a hotel room. I’d come crashing down and would try to find a way to recreate that feeling, to stay ‘up.’ Promoters gave me drugs and alcohol in restaurants or clubs. They wanted me to come back so I would be seen there. They were basically kissing my ass. I thought they were my friends. I thought I was having fun. Being a celebrity can be dangerous. Nobody says ‘no’. That’s why so many end up overdosing and dying. It could definitely have happened to me.”
– Demi Lovato opened up in the UK magazine Fabulous about her drug addiction, which, although she doesn’t name it directly, implies she was using an upper like cocaine. Demi has been in and out of rehab and also been public about her diagnosis of bipolar disorder, bulimia and cutting. I’ve been impressed with her candor and I’m really impressed now that she seems to have self-awareness about herself, her addictions, and her so-called “friends”/the people who enable her. There’s nothing sadder than someone who never hears the word “no” and has no idea people are kissing their ass. [TMZ]
Pamela Anderson may have aged in the past 20 years, but her wardrobe hasn’t changed much. The former ”Baywatch” star, who is now a 44-year-old mother of two, stepped out this weekend at a car show in Monaco wearing a very, very revealing outfit. Wearing short shorts, heels and a backless shirt, Pam looked like she stepped right out of the ’90s — showing even more skin than she did back then!
While Pam’s slinky wardrobe is nothing new, we want to know if you think she’ll ever give it up … or if she even should. Read more…
I’m sure you read the title of this post and were confused. I was too. I knew that there was a chlamydia epidemic amongst the Australian koala population after hearing the story of Samantha who was killed by the STI a few years back. Samantha is not alone –stats say about 80 percent of the marsupials are infected. But the latest scare down under is the spreading of the infection to One Direction band members Liam Payne and Harry Styles. While on tour in Brisbane, the One Direction boys spent some time cuddling with three-year-old koala Kat. Although transmission from koala to humans is unlikely, a minority of the creatures have a strain of chlamydia that can be passed to other species. Apparently, no one mentioned this to them before they got intimate with Kat. “I’m genuinely scared. This is worrying. I’d have never picked the thing up if I’d known,” said Liam. You live and you learn. Never pick up a koala unless you know she’s clean. Better get tested boys. [The Sun UK]
This morning, we told you that actress Carey Mulligan (“An Education,” “Shame”) married Marcus Mumford, of the band Mumford & Sons, in a super-secret ceremony this past weekend. The twosome had only been dating for about five months when they got engaged — not that they ever officially confirmed their plans to wed. (Something else I didn’t know until today — the two were childhood pen pals! Is that not the cutest?) So it’s no surprise that their wedding, held in a barn on a working farm (would you expect anything else from one of the Mumford boys, I mean really?), was kept completely hush-hush. We assume that’s why we weren’t invited anyway. [Huffington Post]
Carey isn’t the only celeb who’s gotten hitched in secret. We’ve rounded up a slew of other hush-hush celebrity marriages to which we also weren’t invited.
Alessandra Ambrosio is the latest celeb to join the naked mama club: the pregnant Victoria’s Secret model posted a black-and-white nude picture of herself on Facebook modeling for Vivara jewelry. Gorgeous, no? [Stylelist]
The Tribeca Film Festival continues to roll on, and stars keep turning out for film premieres and events, panels and discussions. Over the past couple of days, there’s been premieres for “Your Sister’s Sister,” “The Five-Year Engagement,” “DeadFall,” and a whole bunch more. Shall we take a look at what everyone wore? (Oooh, that rhymed!)
