No one could dispute that being a celebrity certainly comes with privileges, but there’s a downside to everything. Unfortunately, because these stars spend so much time in the limelight, they’ve been the target of negative criticism after being bullied because their weight.

Ke$ha

Ke$ha doesn’t fit the stereotype of how the average singer/rapper is supposed to look. Born and raised in Los Angeles, the 27-year-old marches to the beat of her own drum, so when it was revealed that the “Die Young” rapper checked into rehab for an eating disorder earlier this year, fans were shocked. Even worse, her mother revealed that Ke$ha was bullied to lose weight by people within her own inner circle. Soon after checking in, Ke$sha released a statement: “I’m a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself but I’ve found it hard to practice.” She continued that she was aiming “to learn to love myself again. Exactly as I am.”

Check Out Nicki Minaj In Her First Film Role In The Trailer For “The Other Woman”

Nicki Minaj The Other Woman

Nicki Minaj has her hand in quite a few pots these days. When she’s not rapping, she’s putting together a clothing line for Kmart, pushing lines of Moscato and colorful lipsticks, trying her hand at judging reality TV competitions, and now, she’s acting. And we’re not mad at it! Minaj is making the most of her notoriety and talents and that’s always a good thing. The trailer for her upcoming comedy, The Other Woman, was recently released and in it, Minaj plays a colorful (as in real life) and opinionated assistant to Cameron Diaz’s character. Of course, going with the title, the movie follows Diaz’s character as she finds out that a guy she was falling for is actually married (to funny lady Leslie Mann). The playboy is not only married, but he has quite a few other honey dips he’s playing all over the place (including model Kate Upton). Diaz teams up with Mann and Upton to exact revenge against the cheater. Sounds entertaining, right? Well, the trailer definitely looks hilarious. And while Nicki Minaj honestly looks a lot like herself in the scenes we see (what with the alternating wigs), she delivers her lines well. Minaj attended a performing arts school as a teen and actually was cast in an off-Broadway play after high school before focusing on Hip-Hop, so this isn’t her first foray into acting.

The film is directed by Nick Cassavetes and comes out on April 25. Check out the trailer for yourself and let us know what you think!

Tyra Banks

If you look deep into her eyes, I’m sure you can see that this blonde beauty with her pink pout and furry brows is…Tyra Banks.

Well, it’s Tyra Banks dressed and done up to look like supermodel Cara Delevingne to be specific. The legendary model showed love to New York Fashion Week with a photo project meant to pay homage and impersonate some of Tyra’s good friends and the icons in the business, as well as her “colleagues” and “competition.” In the photo above, the model furrowed her brows, put on a blonde wig and got edgy with her attire in order to impersonate the 21-year-old “it” model, Cara Delevigne. But Delevigne is not the only pretty gyal Banks changed her looks for. She also put on her best mole to show love to Cindy Crawford, and got as wide-eyed as possible to do her best Kate Moss. All in all, Banks did about 15 shots for the project, and according to NewsOne, she also dresses up as Linda Evangelista, Lauren Hutton, Jerry Hall, Iman, Kate Moss, Twiggy, Brooke Shields, Claudia Schiffer, Carmen Dell’Orefice, Kate Upton, and Karlie Kloss. So yeah, as far as the black models goes, she includes two, and Naomi Campbell is not on the list. But of course, those two bumped heads as young models and (as older ones) tried to hash out that drama on Banks’ old talk show so I’m not really surprised at that omission. Check out more images that Banks posted so far of herself as Cara, Kate, and Cindy, and let us know what you think.

Earlier this week rumors swirled that hip-hop bigwig Sean “Diddy” Combs and Sports Illustrated supermodel Kate Upton are involved in a “hot and heavy” whirlwind romance. Sources told Daily News gossip column, Confidential, that the pair were seen making out at club LIV in Miami Beach.

“They were kissing, they weren’t hiding it,” the snitch claimed before going on to say that the two disappeared into VIP and partied together until the wee hours of morning.

Sources also say that the duo were spotted “having dinner” at Gemma in the Bowery Hotel. The story didn’t seem far-fetched, as 43-year-old Diddy seems to have a thing for the youngins and Upton is only a few months shy of her 21st birthday. Diddy, however, came out last night stating that the rumors are false.

Kate also took to Twitter to deny rumors.

A representative on behalf of Upton also denied the rumored love connection to TMZ, saying that the two “barely know each other” and that they aren’t dating.

We imagine Diddy’s long-time rumored girlfriend Cassie Venture is letting out a sigh of relief. The two have been rumored to be carrying on an Ashanti-Nelly styled relationship for the past 5 years. Only last September did Diddy semi-confirm their coupledom when he Instagramed a photo of the singer with a caption that read:

“I’m a very lucky man #knowthat.”
