All The Action From The 2014 MTV VMA's

The 2014 MTV VMA's kicked off the two consecutive nights of award shows by honouring those working in the music industry. The telecast gave us time to awe over Beyonce's 15 minute performance where Blue Ivy and Jay Z made a much welcomed appearance, let us cringe over Nicki Minaj's nearly-there wardrobe malfunction, and congratulate the likes of Drake, Zedd, Ed Sheeren, Sia and Miley Cyrus on their wins. Miley Cyrus of which, gave up her speech for a formerly homeless man named Jesse to speak on behalf of the 1.6 million homeless and runways youths of America. For me, there's nothing but respect for Miley who always seems to give back despite her outrageous success. Hate her if you feel an intense need, but you can't deny her hustle- a brainchild of ambition for the young. So go ahead and enjoy the red carpet pictures but never forget about the 7 billion people living alongside us in the world- not everyone has it as easy as us.

Backlash after Miss.Spain Patricia Yurena Comes Out As Gay

'Well it's a good thing she didn't win!'- mention numerous comments on news stories that have reported on Patricia Yurena, Miss Spain 2013 coming out as gay. The extraordinary 24 year old beauty queen placed second in the highly televised Miss.Universe pageant late last year, which other than placing an obvious emphasis on physical beauty, aims to strengthen the ever growing worldwide needs of the modern day independent woman. So with that it seems a bit deceiving that fans of the organisation aren't willing (or find it difficult to comprehend) the idea of a woman who supposedly in their eyes held these perfect ideals, coming out.

Patricia admirably took good use of social media and posted a picture on Instagram entitled- 'Romeo & Juliet'. Whilst the reference may parallel one of society's most famous fictional heterosexual love stories, the picture in itself is a whole different story. Patricia's lying in bed with Spanish DJ and singer Vanesa Klein, both wrapped in fiery passion. Now don't get me wrong, I did appreciate the countless positive comments of support and well wishes on her social media accounts- but those small pesky comments hidden in-between that I mentioned earlier really get me riled up. I was an avid supporter of her when I watched the MUO telecast and was pretty bummed she didn't win- even more so now. What greater platform for a woman to address the beauty of same-sex relationships? For a woman, another woman's touch is nothing to be feared- it's passionate, steamy with underlying components of responsiveness. And vice versa, for a man. The aim here isn't to preach that homosexuality is the only way to go, but to give it an equal amount of respect. I will never understand people trying to condemn someone else's happiness. In the meantime, I think Patricia will do a fine job, MUO winner or not, sending out a positive message about same-sex relationships.

Celebrity Ice Bucket Challenges!

What better way to cool off then throw a bucket of icy cold water on yourself for the sake of charity?(Or a small saucepan in Justin Bieber's case). The charity in this case is the ALS Association- an American non-profit organisation that promotes awareness on Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). In this challenge, the nominated person is given 24 hours to complete the Arctic challenge and has inevitably given celebrities a chance to engage in the new-age viral hype. I've just nominated someone and hopefully she doesn't nominate me back- but if anyone does- I'm in- for the sake of charity and fun! Here are a few celebrities who took on the challenge and conquered!

Bebe Rexha's I Can't Stop Drinking About You

I love following Bebe Rexha on her journey to superstardom. The stunning 24 year old has released the music video to the lead single from her debut album 'I Can't Stop Drinking About You'. Directed by Michael Mihail, the result is spectacular. A whirlwind of chilling emotions in a doomed romance are brought to life amongst a slither of empty bottles, sultry bed shots and arguments embroiled in desperation. Bebe's artistry shows through immaculately and you can tell this isn't her first go at expressing herself through the medium of music. She initially started of her career in Pete Wentz's band Black Cards before deciding to go solo. Soon after she penned the smash hit 'Monster' which was given to Eminem and Rihanna. She was also the voice behind Cash Cash's 'Take Me Home' which was last summer's smash EDM hit. Her new music video below was debuted by Billboard who have nothing but rave reviews for her. I look forward to watching her future work as per usual!

Online Gothic Jewellery

So I came across Online Gothic the other day and instantly fell in love! The website features the entire stock of Alchemy jewellery (the largest Gothic jewellery manufacturer in the world) Everything from chokers, pendants, rings, homeware and more are available to shop. I decided to go for the 'Cobra Life Force Alchemy Gothic Faux Ear Stretcher Earring' (E337). The earring represents the mystery of death and birth. The cobra is also sacred to Asklepios and is a symbol for medical strength. The earring is sold as a single piece and is designed to fit a standard ear piercing. I absolutely love mine! I will most definitely be ordering more items from them.

Forbes Highest Earning Actresses Of 2014

So here's something for everyone wanting to aim a little bit higher in life. These fabulous Hollywood ladies have made Forbes Highest Paid Actresses List of 2014. Leading the way is Sandra Bullock who is still riding high off her Gravity success, which actually earned her some mixed reviews. I understand why her critics may have given her a tough time for the role in terms of the 'stimulating time pass movie-going experience', but I do favour the movie as a parallel critical success. There were pockets of moments in the movie that you could see her years worth of acting roles accumulate. She was incredible. I think she deserves her place at the top of the list. The rest of the list features a mix of familiar faces from the eternal beauties Angelina Jolie and Cameron Diaz to the bombshells, Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson. They've worked their way to the top!


FORBES HIGHEST EARNING ACTRESS OF 2014
SANDRA BULLOCK $51m (31m)

2. JENNIFER LAWRENCE $34m (£20m)
3. JENNIFER ANISTON $31m (£18m)
4. GWYNETH PALTROW $19m (£11m)

5. ANGELINA JOLIE $18m (£10.6m)
6. CAMERON DIAZ $18m (£10.6m)
7. SCARLETT JOHANSSON $17m (£10m)

8. AMY ADAMS $13m (£7.7m)
9. NATALIE PORTMAN $13m (£7.7m)
10. KRISTEN STEWART $12m (7.1)

Britney Spears' Intimate Lingerie Collection

She may have had a few rough years, but you can't deny that Britney Spears was your ultimate icon growing up. Her music, her body, her fashion- we wanted to be her!- And now you pretty much can, whether you want to fall into a heavenly sleep or tease a significant other. Just last week, Britney announced her new sleepwear line 'Intimate' in partnership with Change Lingerie and as a result has unveiled some sexy teaser posters. Whether you want vintage inspired bustiers, kimonos, camisoles, shorts and sweats lathered in embellishment, satin, crochet and lace, this line is most definitely worth a peak! Everybody's shape is catered to with A-J cup sizes and prices from £16-£65. Britney herself will come to London on September 23rd to launch the collection herself, with everything being available exclusively from ASOS on October 23rd. I feel like a lot of us sometimes overlook 'sleepwear' ranges as we don't realise how it can make us feel more confident once the day is over- but judging from the images so far, this will most certainly make you feel like a million bucks without the hefty price-tag!
