N*p slips, butt cracks, spanx shows and vajay-jay shots – this is what happens when wardrobes go wrong. And because celebrities are so prone to these clothing related disasters, we decided to assemble 15 of the most outrageous celebrity wardrobe malfunctions we could find. Click through!
Kelly Rowland must’ve been putting everything and more into this performance, because partway in, both of her boobs slipped right out of her shirt/bra – and she didn’t even notice until the performance was over.
Remember how we told you last week that English fashion designer Vivienne Westwood wasn’t a fan of our First Lady’s fashion sense? Well it seems that many others DO NOT share in such a sentiment (including her own people), because Michelle Obama was pegged as the Best Dressed Woman by English publication, the Sunday Times. It was their first Best Dressed List, so it’s clear they’ve started on a good note. This wouldn’t be the First Lady’s first time on such a list, as her style moves have put her front and center on Best Dressed lists for Vanity Fair and People. The FLOTUS was placed on the list amongst many other famous political figures, including the Queen Elizabeth II and many others. In an interview with the Daily Mail, Style Magazine said Michelle Obama was probably picked as the Best Dressed Woman around because she inspires the style of many other women with her love of mixing affordable pieces with high-end joints and showing off some of the best looking arms the world has to offer. They say she’s a style maven because she understands that “her primary role as first lady is visual, fashion can be a force for good used to inspire and entertain.” I mean really, she’s made Jason Wu’s designs a must-have, managed to put J.Crew clothing in the spotlight and made kitten heels cool. She’s a baaaaaad bad lady. Congrats dear!
Aside from Michelle Obama and many of the other women from abroad who made the list (including the youngest Best Dressed “woman”–Shiloh Jolie Pitt), Lady Gaga unfortunately got put on the Worst Dressed List. If you’re wondering why, just remember her in that meat dress…
What do you think of Michelle Obama getting picked as Best Dressed?
Well isn’t Rihanna just delving into a little bit of everything these days? When she’s not doing the music thing, she’s trying to act, when she’s not acting, she’s collaborating on fashions with River Island (whether critics like it or not), and when she’s not doing that, she’s partnering with MAC cosmetics. Where did MY life go wrong??
Anywho, according to Women’s Wear Daily, the Bajan singer and the famed makeup retailer have teamed up to create a variety of color collections, including her own take on the famed red Ruby Woo color, a personal favorite of hers, calling it “RiRi Woo.” What will RiRi Woo be like? “She wanted RiRi Woo to be slightly more blue-red and retro matte — a matte with moisturizer finish we’d used in a collection years ago and currently only have in one product, “says Jennifer Balbier, senior VP of global product development for the brand. “She was especially adamant that the color be suitable for every skin tone.”
She told WWD that she’s been riding for MAC for so long, it only made sense to put her own stamp on their products. “When you think of makeup, the brand that pops into your mind — for something legit — is MAC. Whatever color you want, it’s like ‘Let’s go to MAC.’ I’ve been using MAC on tour for such a long time it was a natural fit for me. I have always loved makeup, and I always said that if I do it, I want to do it with a credible brand.”
And while MAC is known for teaming up with celebs, including Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Cyndi Lauper and Elton John for its Viva Glam products, John Demsey, the president of MAC’s parent company, Estée Lauder Cos. Inc., tells WWD that they want to make this a lasting partnership, so homegirl’s contributions won’t be temporary. They’ll be working with her on “four distinct color initiatives,” AKA, four different collections.
“These four collections are like four tracks on a Rihanna compilation. Each one has its own vibe, look, special makeup packaging and flavor. This is really the convergence of pop culture, fast fashion, and iconic style and makeup.”
If you’re a big fan of Rihanna and will be in Brooklyn during her Diamonds tour stops on May 4 and 5 at the Barclays Center, according to WWD, MAC will be doing a pop-up shop to sell her new collection, including the RiRi Woo. If you’re not there, you can catch all of her products in a MAC store later this year.
Hmmm, I might be hellas of late, but I guess it’s safe to say that her CoverGirl status is dead? Oh well, this collaboration is definitely an upgrade either way.
Sooooo adorable! This little lady took some time out from her regular routine of watching cartoons to show some love to Michael Jackson. MJ was a good friend to her famous producer father, and the two worked on his album, Invincible, churning out bangers like “You Rock My World” together. This tot’s famous pops is also well-known for working with folks like Brandy, and was behind most of the tracks on her classic Never Say Never album. He’s made endless hits for folks like Whitney Houston, Destiny’s Child, Toni Braxton, Lady Gaga and more. He was given the post of VP of A&R for Island Def Jam back in 2006, and currently, while still working with big names like Alicia Keys, Ciara, and Justin Bieber, the famed producer has his hand in gospel music as well, starting his own independent gospel music label. Through the label, he was able to release his wife’s music–the mother of this firestarter. So who does this cutie patootie belong to? You’ll never guess…
You probably heard the news yesterday that the Grammy organization has handed down a dress code for it’s upcoming award show that’s more detailed than that of most catholic schools. And I’m sure you thought, “huh, aren’t we talking about grown people here?”
Oh, how soon we forget. T&A is about as visible during award season as it is inside of a Gentleman’s club, and after years of people (sometimes the same ones) pushing the envelope way, way, way too far, CBS and the powers that be said they’ve had enough and are banning all sorts of attire — or lack thereof — this year. Still confused why they’re being so strict? Check out some of the most risque fashions ever to grace the Grammy red carpet.
Once upon a time (today included), there was a Queen Bey who reigned unchallenged over every facet of the pop star kingdom. Her unparalleled commitment to outperforming the lesser royals allowed her to outshine them all. Except in one dark area. Being larger than life alienated her from the masses.
Always looking to improve, Queen Bey set her sights on the Web. Other starlets had used social media to their advantage. Surely the Queen could as well. She launched a website! And a Tumblr! Sprinkling out glimpses of her life for the masses to consume, artistic candid photos and handwritten open letters to those that inspired her. Everyone ate it up… for the most part. Some complained. The Queen was showing more of herself, but she wasn’t really telling us anything about who she was.
Bolstered by the delight of fans or the criticism of detractors, Queen Bey decided to take her online presence a step further. She launched The Beyhive blog on Tuesday. She billed it as “my way of showing all the inspiring things I come across every single day… through my eyes.”
Here’s Where the Fairy Tale Gets Real…
Beyoncé’s latest endeavor satisfies the minimum qualifications to be called a blog. The Beyhive is “a frequent, chronological publication of personal thoughts and Web links” (Marketing Terms). The blog features: photo links to the star’s latest cultural and artistic finds, a collection of the notes she writes to newsmakers (previously found in the News section), street style photographed by her stylist, and an archive of fan art. All listed in chronological order.
It’s cute. But she could have just made a Pinterest board.
Let’s look at what other celebrities are doing with lifestyle blogs:
- Goop, launched by Knowles-Carter clique member Gwyneth Paltrow, features interviews as well as editorial heavy features on products, destinations, recipes, and more.
- Little Monsters, the brainchild of the only other performer allowed to make eye contact with the Queen, Lady Gaga, is a full-fledged social network for fans of the provocateur.
- Life & Times, spearheaded by husband to Beyoncé’, Jay-Z, is a full-scale online publication that runs branded video, op-eds, and accompanies all its images with at least a paragraph of text.
He Did What Now!?: Little Known Facts About Your Favorite Celebrities And Their Lives Before They Blew Up
The world of fame guarantees that all of your personal business will be aired out; it’s the simple downside to a life that’s decorated with the finer things. Even so, many celebrities, for years, have managed to keep small nuggets of knowledge about their past and personal lives from the public for long stints of time before that info is unearthed. We learned as much from Janet Jackson’s secret marriage.
So, in the interest of discovery, here’s a list of little known, but more fun facts about some of your favorite celebrities.
As a 2nd grader, Django Unchained star, Jamie Foxx was so talented at telling jokes, his teacher used him as a reward for the hard work and cooperation of her students. If the class behaved, Jamie would entertain them.

Talks about a family feud. Mega producer Teddy Riley is suing his own daughter over a song he crafted for Lady Gaga.
It all started when Lady Gaga spoke with Riley about an idea she had for a song that was then called “Show Me Your Teeth.” Eventually the track appeared on Gaga’s Monster album as a song called “Teeth,” giving Teddy Riley credit as the music composer with lyrics written by Lady Gaga.
Riley’s 21-year-old daughter Taja Riley had been eager to break into the music business. She approached her father about gifting her a songwriting credit as he had done for her older sister Deja Riley.
Well, according to Teddy Riley his daughter jumped the gun and took credit for writing “Teeth,” claiming co-writing credit and a 25 percent interest in the song. This led to Taja inking a deal with EMI Music Publishing and EMI Virgin Music, reports Black America Web.
Now daddy is so mad he has filed a lawsuit against Taja in California federal court for claiming a songwriting credit and partial ownership of a song that he says he developed with Gaga – and that Taja had absolutely nothing to do with, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
In the complaint Riley says his daughter was “desirous of starting her own career in the music and entertainment business” and that “after completion of the ["Teeth"] song, and its selection for inclusion as a track on Lady Gaga’s album, he and Taja had a discussion about whether he would be willing to similarly gift a songwriting credit to Taja Riley to assist her in starting her musical and entertainment career as well,” writes Black America Web.
Riley states in the lawsuit that his daughter “did not participate in any way in the creation of the composition, and did not own any rights whatsoever to The Song.” He is also upset with EMI for not checking with him first, so he is also suing EMI and Sony/ATV (whose now owns EMI’s publishing division) along with his daughter for copyright infringement, fraudulent copyright registration, unfair competition, and accounting issues.
Riley is seeking statutory damages for willful infringement and an injunction. We’re also curious about this claim towards the top that this is something that Riley did for his other daughter.
According to the website, Teddy and his daughter Taja have a contentious relationship. In December 2009, he was accused of violently attacking his daughter with a guitar from the video game Rock Band. Taja was granted a temporary restraining order against her father, who was ordered to stay 100 yards from his daughter.
Many of us know how it feels to waste money on something we probably didn’t need – a pair of shoes that end up hurting our feet, a purse that looks stupid once we get it home… But for celebrities, frivolous spending seems almost criminal given the amounts of money they drop on unbelievably ridiculous things. These fifteen big spenders have purchased everything from white Bengal tigers to gold leggings, and at prices you wouldn’t believe.
Chad Johnson – $100,000 “Super Truck”
For his 32nd birthday, Chad Johnson made the questionable decision to purchase, what he called, a “super truck.” What this meant, I had no idea – until I saw the photos. Chad’s “super truck” is essentially a big rig minus the trailer but with all of the same obnoxious largeness. The monstrosity was custom built over a period of six months which makes sense when you consider its many unnecessary features: pick up bed, roll bar, air horn, Ochocinco branding. Oh, and so you know, Chad’s super truck gets a whopping 6-9 miles per gallon.
After the surprising success of her single “Love and War,” which rocketed to number one last week with the help of great production, a great voice, her reality show and the co-sign of celeb friends and supporters like Ne-Yo and Lady Gaga, Tamar Braxton is riding around and getting it as we speak. For further proof of that, check out her performance of “Love And War” on The Wendy Williams Show, which was shown on today’s episode. In a form-fitting black dress with white floral details, a dramatic blonde wig, and a bright red lip, she sang her little heart out, even allegedly bringing Wendy to tears.
All in all, the more I hear the song, the more I appreciate it, because initially, while it was a beautiful track, I was indifferent about it. But that girl can SANG. Yes, “sang” m’dears, not “sing,” which made me like the song a lot more. But I will admit that there were moments where I couldn’t really hear what she was saying and she struggled at first to get those high notes off the ground, but once she did, I had to bob my head hard like Vince was doing in the audience (big laugh at him for doing it with such a straight serious face). Good work by Toni’s little sister, who is clearly starting to get some shine all on her own. Check out the video below and let us know if you’re loving the track and the performance. And on a side note, unless you love Wiz Khalifa, you can stop watching around the five-minute mark.
