A lot will be said in the days and years to come about all the amazing and unforgettable Grammy Moments that Ken Ehrlich has somehow made happen decade after decade live on the Grammy Awards. Likely, a lot of it has already been said by my longtime mentor and lifelong friend Ken himself to Chris Willman […]
That don’t impress Halsey much!
The 25-year-old singer paid tribute to some of her idols in the music video for her new single You Should Be Sad, channeling the likes of Christina Aguilera, Lady GaGa, Carrie Underwood, and Shania Twain in what looked like the ultimate revenge hoedown!
The New York native took to Twitter following the video’s release, telling fans:
“Xtina, Gaga, Carrie, and of course Shania, this was one loaded with nods to badass idols of mine. Had the vision to do a ‘before he cheats’ but instead about after he does haha.”
Many fans think the unfaithful “he” she’s referring to is ex-boyfriend, G-Eazy.
As for the “nods,” viewers noticed Halsey wore the same leopard print ensemble Shania wore in the video for her ‘90s smash, That Don’t Impress Me Much, and was rocking the same eye makeup Underwood donned in the Cry Pretty music video.
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) and see if you can find all the badass references!
What a decade it’s been in music!
Many of today’s talented performers have helped us express and believe in ourselves through the power of song.
But more importantly, many of today’s artists have been stepping up their sexy music video game!
To celebrate how far we’ve come in music video sexiness over the past decade, we’ve compiled a list of the absolute sexiest videos from the 2010s for your viewing pleasure — so take a walk down memory lane and ch-ch-check em out (below)!!
Lady Gaga ft. Beyoncé, ‘Telephone’ (2010)
Lady GaGa kicked off the decade with a cinematic, 9-minute short that blends murder, a sandwich-making tutorial, and Quentin Tarantino references and somehow still manages to be sexy. In the video for Telephone — which is actually a sequel to the Paparazzi video — GaGa is bailed out of a women’s prison by her partner in crime, Beyoncé (ahem, Honey Bee). The two to hop in the Pussy Wagon from Kill Bill: Volume I and head to a diner, where they proceed to poison Honey Bee’s problematic lover and drive off into the sunset together. Love wins; so does meta-cyanide.
Katy Perry, ‘California Gurls’ (2010)
Later that summer, Katy Perry launched her sophomore album Teenage Dream with this sweet, sexy visual feast. Like the upbeat track itself, the video for California Gurls paid tribute to the singer’s native Golden State — but with a confectious spin: it shows Katy wandering through the Candy Cane forest, nakedly perched atop the Cotton Candy clouds, and dancing on the beach in a teeny-weeny cupcake bikini. To top it all off, Katy ends the video by dousing Californialand in whipped cream. When can we book our flights!?
Rihanna, ‘S&M’ (2011)
Sadomasochism might not be everyone’s thing, but Rihanna certainly made whips and chains exciting with this colorful, tantalizing video. Coming in during her Loud era, the video shows the songstress in both master and slave scenarios, proving that this makeup mogul has always been a multi-hyphenate.
But there’s more at play here: director Melina Metsoukas told Billboard in 2011 the video is actually an allegory for Riri’s “sadomasochist relationship with the press… it isn’t just about a bunch of whips and chains.” That probably explains the shots of the star whipping reporters and internet bloggers…
Miley Cyrus, ‘Wrecking Ball’ (2013)
By 2013, Miley Cyrus had been trying to shed her wholesome, Disney Channel image for a few years. She was done pandering to the Hanna Montana-loving, teeny-bopping fans, and more than ready to be seen as a grown-up *artiste*. Thus, Bangerz Miley was born.
While the singer first commenced this short-haired, twerkful era with the music video for We Can’t Stop, the followup video for Wrecking Ball really showed what a force she was becoming. Sexy highlights of this video include the starlet swinging on a wrecking ball naked and licking a hammer while she sings about being wrecked by someone in her life. Needless to say, fans were wrecked after watching this.
FKA twigs, ‘Papi Pacify’ (2013)
The dramatic, black-and-white video for FKA twigs‘ single Papi Pacify shows the British singer clinging to a lover in ecstasy. Despite the sensual visuals, however, the video is actually an artistic depiction of an emotionally abusive relationship the star had been in. Speaking to Evening Standard, Twigs said the scenes where her lover sticks his fingers in her mouth represented the moments in that relationship when she couldn’t express herself, explaining:
“In the relationship I couldn’t communicate. The person I was with was stopping me from explaining how I felt. So the physical manifestation is someone putting their hand in your mouth. But there’s an element, too, of liking that as well. It’s messed up. It’s addictive.”
We’d say she definitely captured that feeling with this clip!
Beyoncé, ‘Partition’ (2014)
A year after giving birth to Blue Ivy, Beyoncé wanted to remind the world she was still as sexy as ever. Enter Partition: the freakum song that was so seductive, the star was reportedly afraid to play it for her mom. Set in part at the Parisian cabaret Crazy Horse, where Bey and JAY-Z got engaged, the video shows the songstress playing onstage temptress to her hubby.
She said in the making-of documentary, Self-Titled:
“I know that there’s so many women that feel the same thing after they give birth. You can have your child and you can still have fun and still be sexy and still have dreams and still live for yourself…I’m not embarrassed about it, and I don’t feel like I have to protect that side of me because I do believe that sexuality is a power we all have.”
DJ Snake & Lil’ Jon, ‘Turn Down For What’ (2014)
In this surreal video directed by The Daniels (the duo behind that wonderfully bizarre Daniel Radcliffe corpse movie), a man with an insatiable urge to dance possesses everyone in his apartment building floor-by-floor, resulting in a dance party of comically horny tenants unable to control their appendages. It’s semi-NSFW, if d**ks rhythmically pulsating underneath sweatpants is something you don’t want your boss to see you watching.
Nicki Minaj, ‘Anaconda’ (2014)
Months later, Nicki Minaj reinforced the power of booty with the sweltering Anaconda music video. The rapper’s ode to her backside was accompanied by this jaw-dropping clip that costars a pent up Drake and an equally frustrated banana. While there are buns and hips galore, the video is actually all about Nicki maintaining control in the art of seduction. She told GQ in 2014:
“At first I’m being sexual with the banana, and then it’s like, ‘Ha-ha, no.’ That was important for us to show in the kitchen scene, because it’s always about the female taking back the power, and if you want to be flirty and funny that’s fine, but always keeping the power and the control in everything.”
Call her the anaconda whisperer!
Selena Gomez, ‘Hands To Myself’ (2016)
Years before Netflix‘s You came out and gave everyone complicated feelings about stalkers, Selena Gomez decided to make stalking sexy with this incredible music video that was released in January 2016.
In 2015, Selena tapped director Alek Keshishian to direct the video for her touchy-feely single Hands to Myself, in which she plays a stalker who breaks into her celebrity crush’s house. In a making-of clip, Selly said she wanted the concept of the video “to feel like it was two different versions of being in this fantasy,” adding:
“I think everybody can have those moments where they’re dreaming about what their life could be, especially if they’re girls with love, being obsessed with an idea and you can’t control yourself, because that’s what you want no matter what is happening.”
Kanye West, ‘Fade’ (2016)
The visuals for Kanye West‘s Life of Pablo jam Fade are primarily a sweaty Flashdance-esque workout featuring Teyana Taylor. But once she hits the showers, things take an odd turn: she’s joined by her husband, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert, for some steamy passion before she transforms into a panting lioness while their baby is held skyward by a flock of sheep.
Charli XCX, ‘Boys’ (2017)
Charli XCX intentionally flipped the male gaze in this cheeky self-directed video for Boys that features 60 cameos from male celebs. Among the boys she enlists are Joe Jonas (for pancake eating), Chromeo (for pillow fighting), Cameron Dallas (for chainsaw flexing), and Diplo (for puppy bench pressing). We hereby nominate Charli to direct every music video until the end of time.
Tove Lo, ‘Disco T*ts’ (2017)
Tove Lo blended sex with comedy in the 2017 video for Disco T*ts, showing her on a wild, drug-filled road trip with a Muppet in desperate need of a good time. After the fuzzy talk show host agrees to go off with the singer, he’s quickly corrupted into snorting powdery substances and giving her oral sex while she’s driving. Moral of the story: Tove Lo will make a man out of any Muppet.
Cardi B, ‘Money’ (2018)
Cardi B proved that while money can’t buy happiness, it sure can pay for an alluring music video with this 2018 clip. The Money video surrounds the rapper with bare-nippled strippers and levitating pole dancers, putting Cardi in a glass case at the center of a museum room, as a gold statue on a spinning display, and as the Madonna breastfeeding her baby, Kulture.
Normani, ‘Motivation’ (2019)
After breaking free from Fifth Harmony, Normani proved she didn’t need Camila Cabello and co. to make a sexy music video. In the Motivation video, the singer paid tribute to her pop idols with visual references to Beyoncé‘s Crazy in Love and Britney Spears‘ …Baby One More Time; plus, lots of Brit and Bey-level sexy dancing. We’d say she did them proud!
Harry Styles, ‘Lights Up’ (2019)
Harry Styles cemented his sex symbol status at the end of the decade with this orgiastic clip. The Lights Up video places the former One Direction member in a gaggle of sweaty bodies, with people of all genders fighting to put their hands on the shirtless singer. It did little to quell the speculation about Harry’s ever-ambiguous sexuality, but we’re not complaining.

In the beginning, the 62nd Grammy Awards looked set to be an inevitable showdown between two of the hottest new stars of 2019: Lizzo vs. Billie Eilish. In a way, it could still be. When the nominees were announced Nov. 20, Lizzo scored the most, with eight. In second place: Eilish, who landed six. But […]
It’s the classic moment in the musical biopic we all know, when the artist is awash with accolades, glowing with handfuls of golden awards, they begin work on the next big album, and an assistant in the studio sniffs the air, makes a sour face, and asks… “Hey, what died?”
OK, maybe that part got edited out of Bohemian Rhapsody… LOLz! But it’s the unfiltered truth for Lady GaGa right now!
The Born This Way singer shared a very embarrassing personal moment on Twitter Thursday, revealing she has been forgoing some basic hygiene just for you, the fans! She wrote:
my assistant: when’s the last time you bathed
me: i don’t remember
Wha?! Not even a shallow bath? Gurl, have a care for the engineers sitting with you in the studio!
This time the Little Monsters all over her are bacteria.
We kid, but GaGa is actually talking about the sacrifices she’s making for her fans. See, that little #LG6 hashtag means she’s talking about working so hard on the next album she isn’t even taking a break to clean herself.
Yeah, it still sounds gross… but it means the long-awaited followup to Joanne will make its way to your ears just a little bit faster. Though if it sounds like the backup singers are all holding their noses you’ll know why.
Then again, maybe it’s not so much album expediency fueling her abandonment of hygienic norms…
Gurl has also apparently been single for quite a while. Maybe she just doesn’t give an eff?
She and fiancé Christian Carino split all the way back in February, opening the door to rampant speculation about her working relationship with co-star and director and duet partner Bradley Cooper. That was followed by rumors of a fling with Avengers star Jeremy Renner.
However, neither materialized into a full-fledged, official relationship. And just this month we heard she and Christian were finally talking again, but sources assured us it was just as friends. So near as we can tell, GaGa has been a free agent for TEN MONTHS.
No wonder she’s able to get away with not bathing in who knows how long. She doesn’t have someone lying next to her to tell her ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
Well, far be it from us to interrupt the artist’s process… you do you, GaGa!

The post Lady GaGa Says She Can’t Remember The Last Time She Bathed appeared first on Perez Hilton.
On the 12th day of Perezmas, pop culture gave to us…
12 BRUTAL celebrity breakups!
Love is patient, love is kind… until it’s impatient and nasty. As we know, many Hollywood relationships end in dissatisfaction and heartbreak — and this year proved to be quite a wrecking ball for many beloved celeb couples!
We’ve said goodbye to OTPs that have been together for nearly a decade, and couples that have been hooking up for mere months.
No matter the span of time, however, the death of any celeb romance is tragic; so let us mourn the losses of these once loving relationships…
Liam Hemsworth & Miley Cyrus
The on-again-off-again romance between the Wrecking Ball singer and Last Song actor swung back to “off” mode on August 11, when news broke that the longtime couple had split less than a year after finally tying the knot.
Sources told E! News the couple “were drifting apart” and had been “trying to make it work for months.” But, alas, they just had to keep on movin’ their separate ways. A rep for Miley quickly confirmed news of the split, telling fans in a statement:
“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers. They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy.”
Miley’s “process” involved climbing onto formerly platonic lady friend Kaitlynn Carter, who the songbird was spotted making out with in Lake Como in Italy just a day after the news of her breakup with Liam broke.
The Disney darling and Brody Jenner‘s ex didn’t last longer than a #HotGirlSummer, though, and Miley quickly moved on to fellow singer Cody Simpson.
With Miley going back to the city lights, Liam, per her instructions, slid away to the shores of Australia, where he spent months hanging out with his family, surfing, and eventually finding a new love interest in actress Maddison Brown.
According to reports, Liam and his new girlfriend have been laughing at Miley and Cody’s over-the-top Instagram PDA, suggesting he and Miles won’t be getting back together, as they’ve done in the past. Sadz!
Brody Jenner & Kaitlynn Carter
Weeks before Kaitlynn was spotted locking lips with Miley, news broke that she and her “husband” had ended their five year relationship — which was easy to do, seeing as they weren’t technically married in the first place. While The Hills: New Beginnings stars pulled out all the stops for a wedding in Bali last year, they never actually finished getting their marriage legalized in America.
It’s not totally clear what caused their relationship to go sour. A source claimed Kait wanted to make their union official and wanted a baby, but Brody did not, while a separate source noted:
“The show didn’t help.”
Insiders also said the couple split up a while before the news broke — which makes sense, as they both quickly moved on to other love interests.
Kait, like we said, was quickly seen on Miley’s arm, while Brody began dating 22-year-old model Josie Canesco. (Neither rebound relationship lasted long.)
Unlike many exes, however, it appears the two are still on good terms. When Kaitlynn and Miley were still together, they sent Brody a joint present for his birthday: a gift box from marijuana dispensary Lowell Farms, complete with a weed bouquet.
Adele & Simon Konecki
On April 19, Adele‘s representatives Benny Tarantini and Carl Fysh said in a statement to the Associated Press that she and Simon Konecki were breaking up after more than seven years together.
The 30-year-old Grammy winner and 44-year-old entrepreneur-philanthropist met in 2011, and she first addressed their relationship in a since-deleted post on her blog around January 2012. Five months later, she announced they were expecting a child together — and went on to give birth to son Angelo on October 19, 2012.
The couple have since lived a quiet life in her native London and Beverly Hills, where they bought a home together in 2016. Despite their private relationship, however, there were a few signs the pair were headed for splitzville over the past year.
Since last June, the songstress has been seen out on the town without her husband, attending concerts and events with her famous pals instead. In 2018, she joined Taylor Swift backstage during her Reputation stadium tour, and surprised Drake several months later by giving one of his concerts a rave review.
Earlier this year, Adele attended one of Robyn’s concerts in El Lay and posted a video of herself singing along to the star’s 2010 hit Dancing On My Own.
A month later, the Brit was photographed heading into a New York City recording studio in an all-black outfit and, tellingly, without her wedding ring on.
Adele and Simon were last photographed together in January, while attending Elton John‘s Farewell Yellow Brick Road concert in El Lay. Her reps said the couple were “committed to raising their son together lovingly.”
Wendy Williams & Kevin Hunter
It was both an empowering and disorienting year for Wendy Williams. The daytime diva filed for divorce from her husband Kevin Hunter in April after over two decades of marriage, and went on to cut ties with him professionally amid the birth of his alleged love child with Sharina Hudson, his alleged mistress.
Not only was Hunter axed as executive producer of The Wendy William Show, Wendy dissolved The Hunter Foundation, the non-profit they founded together in 2014 aiming to help addicts.
While both parties remained tight lipped for a few weeks, Hunter eventually broke his silence on the cheating scandal in a statement to People, confessing he was “not proud of my recent actions.” He explained:
“I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs. No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life of sobriety, while I also work on mine.”
The demise of their relationship certainly took a toll on Wendy. Prior to their split, the star was residing in a sober living home and eventually relapsed amid rumors of his alleged infidelity. Following their breakup, however, things started to look up for the talk show host: sources on her show said the star had a new pep in her step and was enjoying her newly single life.
As for their son, Kevin Jr., the 20-year-old has seemingly yet to make amends with his father. As we reported, the duo got into a heated altercation over the summer, and a few punches were reportedly thrown. Wendy, meanwhile, claims to be on cordial terms with her ex. Back in August, she said on SiriusXM’s Sway in the Morning:
“I want to be friends with Kevin. I mean, and not because we have a son but because that was real love. I still love him just not in that way… I still have love for him and I wish him the best in his new life with his new family.”
Hannah Brown & Jed Wyatt
As fans will remember, Wyatt sparked backlash following reports he was in a relationship when he went on the popular dating show. Back in June, musician Haley Stevens told People she was in a serious thing with the Nashville native for four months before he left to film the ABC series in March.
She told the outlet:
“We spent the night together the night before he headed to LA. He told me (the show) was just an obstacle and we’d be stronger on the other side because of it… He said, ‘It’s probably not going to happen, but it’s a huge opportunity. I’m only doing this for my music.’ He wanted a platform… He said he only wanted to be top five… to be a major player so that it would be beneficial.”
Oh, he’s a major player alright. Stevens said she and Wyatt enjoyed a romantic getaway to the Bahamas, where they both said “I love you” for the first time, after Wyatt learned he would officially join the cast in February.
As fate would have it, he ended up earning the final rose from Hannah B., and the two were seen enjoying their engagement — until his past came to light (in dramatic fashion, obvi):
In the live finale, Hannah announced she and Wyatt were no longer together (to a rousing round of applause from the audience!) and eventually asked out the runner-up, Tyler Cameron. Hannah and Ty didn’t go the distance either, but at least the hapless Hannah came out the other side of her Bachelorette experience stronger.
Irina Shayk & Bradley Cooper
The beautiful couple of four years went their separate ways back in June, after a flurry of rumors that Bradley Cooper had taken his on-screen romance with his A Star Is Born co-star Lady GaGa off-screen. Both Coop and GaGa denied this romance; however, a source told to People that Bradley grew “emotionally absent” during the filming of the musical romance flick.
The source explained:
“They tried to save the relationship, but it had changed. Since Bradley and Irina have always been very private about their relationship, few knew there was really for sure something going on.”
The two had always been very private about their relationship. Shayk told British Glamour months before their breakup:
“I have a lot of friends who share a lot of their personal life on Instagram or social media, very publicly. I admire it and I think it’s great—but I think it’s all about personal choice. Because my work requires me to be out there, I just decided my personal life will be quiet. That’s why it’s called personal, because it’s something for you and your family, and I feel happy with it.”
While the couple handled their split as privately as their relationship, there are a couple things we do know. Shayk was the one who called things off, as a source told Entertainment Tonight:
“Recently Irina decided enough is enough. She didn’t feel she was getting the level of commitment she wanted, and the endless fighting made their life unbearable. They are very different people, and once they realized it was the baby that was holding them together, it was time to call it quits.”
We also know the pair have been amicably co-parenting their 2-year-old daughter, Lea de Seine Shayk Cooper. So, it sounds like Bradley was just too focused on his work and not enough on his wife. (At least that’s the narrative they’re pushing!)
As for the GaGa romance rumors, it does sound like those are just rumors fueled by great on-screen (and on-stage) chemistry. After all, Gagz has had a busy year in the (bad) romance department herself…
Lady GaGa & Christian Carino
Yes, the pop superstar was apparently caught in a bad romance during the end over her two year relationship with talent agent Christian Carino. When the engaged couple announced their split back in February, it was reported without any drama.
But soon enough, the drama came to light. According to an Us Weekly source, Carino “didn’t treat Gaga very well toward the end of their relationship.” A second insider said the singer was the one who ended things with her man because he wouldn’t stop texting (read: telephoning) her.
The source told Us:
“He was jealous. He was trying to find her all the time and texted her a lot. Her friends didn’t like him either.”
The alleged post-breakup telephoning got so intense, the Oscar-winner reportedly had to tell her former finance “not to contact her” at all!
The duo, who were first reported to be dating in early 2017, kept tight lipped about their engagement, but the singer publicly confirmed the news during a speech in October 2018. While they made a few joint appearances during the A Star Is Born press circuit in the months leading up to their split, they went their separate ways before the Oscars, and GaGa attended the awards show solo.
Months later, the star was linked to audio engineer hunk Daniel Horton, with whom she worked with on her Las Vegas residency. But GaGa revealed in November that she was “single,” seemingly confirming the two had since split.
Camila Cabello & Matthew Hussey
Camila Cabello’s most notable romance of 2019 was with Shawn Mendes, but let’s not forget: the first half of the year, she was still in a fling with her relationship coach boyfriend, Matthew Hussey!
According to reports, the Havana singer and the British native called it quits in early July — mere weeks before she dropped Señorita, her latest steamy duet with Shawn.
The 22-year-old performer and 32-year-old love guru reportedly got together in February 2018 after meeting on the set of Today. They made their relationship red carpet official the following February when they attended Vanity Fair’s Oscars after-party together.
The former Fifth Harmony member previously opened up about her romance with Hussey in the cover story for Marie Claire’s holiday 2018 issue, telling the mag:
“He’s so similar to me…In person, we’re just weird and silly and stupid together. He makes me the happiest I’ve ever been in my life.”
Of course, that was before Camila made things official with Shawn on the Fourth of July the following year. Sorry to Matthew Hussey.
Bella Thorne & Tana Mongeau… and Mod Sun
We might need a diagram to explain this one. Bella Thorne made no shame of her polyamorous relationships with rapper Mod Sun and YouTuber Tana Mongeau when the three were all dating each other — or the two were each dating Bella? (we’re not sure; the details were never clear) — throughout 2018.
But the whole the-more-the-merrier thing didn’t work out, evidently, as both legs of the relationship eventually gave way. After months of social media speculation, the Famous in Love alum confirmed she had split from Mongeau, writing on Twitter:
“Tana and I aren’t together anymore, pls stop asking.”
Jake Paul’s future “wife” later followed up with a tweet of her own, writing:
“i love her forever don’t get that twisted. she changed my life forever. don’t rly wanna talk on it.. there’s no negativity at all.”
Months later, Bella and Mod called it quits at Coachella. Unlike her parting from Tana, however, there did seem to be some negativity between Bella and the aspiring rapper. While Bella and Mod have seemingly yet to make amends, the actress and Tana remain friends to this day. Bella is now with Italian musician Benjamin Mascolo.
Emma Roberts & Evan Peters
Evan Peters and Emma Roberts had split before over the course of their five-year, on-off relationship, but they reportedly decided to end things once and for all around Valentine’s Day; only a few weeks before the actress was spotted kissing actor Garrett Hedlund in March.
After the lip lock caused a fan panic, sources confirmed the American Horror Story power couple had called off their engagement. The news was bittersweet, as the pair were said to have had quite the tumultuous romance.
The twosome started dating in 2012 after they worked together on the film Adult World. They faced their first scandal a year into their relationship when Roberts was arrested and quickly released on domestic abuse charges as a result of a “heated argument” she had with Peters that left him with a bloody nose.
The actress’ rep called the ordeal “an unfortunate incident and misunderstanding,” stating:
“Ms. Roberts was released after questioning and the couple are working together to move past it.”
Moving past that incident would include a proposal: Peters went on to pop the question to Roberts with a pink and gold diamond ring just before the new year. They ended up calling off their engagement in June 2015, but were spotted together again in November 2016, with the Scream Queens star still wearing her engagement ring.
The couple faced another scandal in 2017 when Emma found herself in the middle of Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen‘s breakup. At the time, sources said Bilson found texts suggesting that Christensen was cheating on her with Roberts, who was his co-star in the film Little Italy.
While Emma and Evan always seemed to find their way back to one another, they called it quits for good in February. A source told Us Weekly in March:
“Emma and Evan were heading for a split and now are just friends. Evan has moved out. It wasn’t a bad breakup.”
Months later, the actress reflected on the breakup in an interview with Cosmo, musing:
“I think that no matter who you are or what you do or wherever in the world you are, anything ending is hard. Losing something is hard.”
While Roberts is said to be “exploring a relationship” with her new man, Peters has moved on with singer Halsey.
Gigi Hadid & Tyler Cameron
While most Bachelor/ette contestants go on to date within the Bachelor Nation circle, Tyler Cameron shocked the world by dating actual celebrity, Gigi Hadid, for a whole two months! Their relationship was quick, but memorable, and started how most do in 2019: with an Instagram follow.
Months after Tyler lost out to Jed Wyatt, he and the supermodel started following each other on the social media site. Mere weeks later — and days after he got drinks with Bachelorette Hannah B. (playas gon’ play!) — Ty flew to New York and was spotted at Soho House with Hadid. Receipts were posted, and fans were shooketh.
After a second date at a bowling alley, Tyler was seen leaving Gigi’s NYC apartment (!!!), and things really picked up from there. The following weeks saw the couple vacationing together in Lake George; Gigi introducing Tyler to her good friend, Serena Williams; sister Bella Hadid following Tyler on Instagram; Tyler accompanying Gigi to her grandmother’s funeral in the Netherlands; and Tyler moving to NYC — 15 minutes away from Gigi.
But it all came crashing down in early October, when a source confirmed to Us Weekly that “Tyler is single” and “no longer together” with the supermodel.
Khloé Kardashian & Tristan Thompson
Unsurprisingly, the breakup of the year goes to Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson.
The news broke on February 19, with a source spilling that the pair weren’t speaking due to reports that the NBA star had cheated on her with Kylie Jenner‘s then-bestie, Jordyn Woods. We may never know what actually happened that fateful night, but we have a few different narratives to go off of.
On KUWTK, family friend Larsa Pippen told the sisters that Jordyn might have been sitting on Tristan’s lap at a party. After Koko set out to learn the “whole truth,” her baby daddy eventually came clean about everything. She said on the episode:
“There was nothing else he could do but confirm it. He answered my questions and I got more details—that everybody left the party and Jordyn stayed, that she was sitting on his lap, they were all over each other, they were handsy, they made out. It’s disgusting. I’ll never understand the depths of his…ugh. I was just hoping for a better outcome for my daughter and myself.”
Woods shared her (different) version of events on Jada Pinkett Smith‘s Red Table Talk, telling the host:
“Never once was I giving him a lap dance, making out with him, sitting all over him. It’s just we’re all together. We’re in a group. Never once did we leave the public area, go to a bedroom, go to a bathroom. We’re all in plain sight. This seems completely crazy to me that anybody says there was a lap dance involved because there was no lap dance involved.”
She admitted the two did kiss, but it was by no means a “make out,” adding:
“I was drunk. I was not tipsy. I was drunk, but I was not beyond the point of recollection. I know where I was. But on the way out, he did kiss me. No passion—no nothing—on the way out. He just kissed me. It was a kiss on the lips, but no tongue kiss, no making out. Nothing. And I don’t think he’s wrong, either, because I allowed myself in that position. And when alcohol’s involved, people make dumb moves or people get caught up in the moment.”
Fallout from the incident was cataclysmic. Jordyn soon saw herself kicked out of the KarJenner circle (and Kylie’s house, where she had been staying), while Tristan spent the remainder of the year trying to win his baby momma back.
Lest we forget, this wasn’t even the first time Thompson was caught cheating on Khlo. In April 2018, just days before the reality star gave birth to their daughter True Thompson, the athlete was spotted kissing another woman in New York City. The Good American mogul defended her decision to stay with Thompson in June, tweeting:
“You have no knowledge of what goes on in our household or the enormous rebuilding this takes to even coexist. I’m proud of my strength. I appreciate your opinion and I hope you hold that same opinion to everyone else who has stayed in situations.”
Although Khloé spent most of the year insisting she wouldn’t take Tristan back this time, it was reported in December that the apparent exes were “100 percent back together,” but were keeping it a “secret because she knows how much everyone would judge her.” But a separate insider soon insisted that the two were very much still broken up — for now, at least.
Which celeb split was the most heartbreaking for YOU??

Apparently, ’tis the season to rekindle with your ex. Or at the very least, start talking to them again.
Per an Us Weekly source, Lady GaGa is friendly again with her former fiancé Christian Carino, whom she called it quits with in February 2019.
The insider revealed:
“Lady Gaga is talking to Christian again, but as friends. There is nothing going on there.”
The 33-year-old was first linked to the talent agent in February 2017, and they became engaged this past October. Although they are chatting again, GaGa is “not seriously ating anyone right now.” Previously, the Haus Laboratories founder was engaged to Chicago Fire star Taylor Kinney, whom she began dating in 2011, but it was called off in 2016.
Following the split, things were relatively quiet from the songstress’ side, who didn’t speak out about the breakup until June. While performing her Jazz & Piano show in Las Vegas on Sunday night, the A Star Is Born actress briefly broke her silence, and shared with the Sin City crowd:
“Last time I sang this song, I had a ring on my finger, so it’ll be different this time.”
Things may be going smoothly now for the former couple, but there were reports of a Bad Romance in the months following the split. As we reported, a source spilled to Us Weekly that the Grammy Award winner was being “hounded” by her ex long after the breakup occurred:
“She’s been hounded by Christian. She told him not to contact her.”
But things apparently weren’t going so well while they were still engaged, either. In March, an insider spoke out about the crooner’s public split which went down during the 2019 awards season (AKA when all the romance rumors were swirling about GaGa and Bradley Cooper):
“Chris didn’t treat GaGa very well toward the end of their [two-year] relationship.”
A second confidant divulged a bit more, revealing it was the Ally Campano portrayer who ultimately had to call things off with Carino:
“GaGa was the one who broke things off. He was jealous. He was trying to find her all the time and texted her a lot. Her friends didn’t like him either.”

Another day, another batch of trolls trying their damnedest to cancel Billie Eilish!
The 17-year-old music prodigy got dragged on Twitter Friday because she doesn’t care for the infamous meat dress Lady GaGa wore to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards.
You remember the one:
The outrage was summoned by a GaGa fan account that posted a since-deleted clip of the Bad Guy superstar and her brother/collaborator Finneas discussing Grammy Awards fashion.
When GaGa’s meat dress was brought up, Billie’s response was:
That’s all she said. Not a syllable more. But, alas, it was enough to set off GaGa’s Little Monsters on social media. As you might have guessed, the hashtag #BillieEilishIsOverParty was trending shortly after.
An account called Lady Gaga’s Artpolice wrote:
“Lady Gaga, the second most awarded women alive in music after Beyonce with 304+ awards, has wore a meat dress almost a decade ago. #Vogue loved it, @TheEllenShow most popular tv show loved it, @drake rapper with 181 award winner loved it. Who f**k is she. #BillieEilishIsOverParty”
Soon, it got personal. Another user wrote:
“[GaGa] has more talent and vision in her single pinky toe than Billie Eyelash in her whole lifetime. Lady Gaga set the tone for the music and political trend this decade. A trailblazer. All things that industry plant is not. #BillieEilishIsOverParty”
In the words of Billie: yikes.
Thankfully, a wave of defenders came to put out the firestorm of outrage, reminding Billie haters that, 1) she’s a VEGAN, so she probably wouldn’t praise a dress made of dead cow, and 2) the meat dress WAS pretty weird, tbh.
One supporter wrote:
“is people really gonna bully a 17 years old teen for just saying a MEAT dress was weird.. she is so right like everyone roasted gaga for a whole ass year come on. Also let’s not forget billie is a KNOWN vegan anyways go watch the new music video #BillieEilishisoverparty”
Even select GaGa fans defended Billie, with one tweeting:
“Dude I’ve been a Gaga fan since the beginning. & even I’m not mad at Billie Eilish. Y’all are just sad for trying to cancel a 17 year old VEGAN for her own opinions/beliefs.Like you think Gaga was bothered by all the opinions back then, let alone now?”
BTW, Billie was also #canceled last week when a bunch of Van Halen fans were upset that she didn’t know who Van Halen was.
We can’t wait to see what she gets #canceled for next week!
Are YOU irked by Billie’s remark about the meat dress? Ch-ch-check out the clip in question (below) and sound off in the comments!

The post Billie Eilish Gets ROASTED By Lady GaGa Fans For Dissing The Meat Dress! appeared first on Perez Hilton.
It’s almost time to say goodbye to 2019 and the horse it rode in on — or the horse that dominated the conversation for the better part of the year, at least: Lil Nas X’s. If, 12 months ago, anyone had told us the coming year would be defined by a gay black man peddling […]
NEW YORK (AP) — Lady Gaga is returning to the Super Bowl stage — sort of.
The Grammy nominations are out, and they’re music to the ears of Billie Eilish and Lizzo fans FO SHO!
For those who missed it, the list of nods for the 2020 ceremony were announced Wednesday morning at a live-streamed press conference. Like last year, there were a few more nominees than usual, with the top four all-genre categories having eight nominees each — instead of five, as was the case from 1959-2018.
In this competitive age of recording artists, however, more nominee slots doesn’t make things easier: plenty of qualified stars were shut out altogether! But more on that later…
For now, ch-ch-check out the list of nominees (below) to see which of your fave musicians are up for a coveted award!

It’s been over a year since Lady GaGa starred alongside Bradley Cooper in their box office hit, A Star Is Born, where the pair’s palpable chemistry captivated fans everywhere.
In the time since, the 33-year-old songstress has long moved on from the romance rumors surrounding her and her beloved costar, but she took some time to directly address them and dive into a larger conversation about mental health in a new interview with Oprah Winfrey for Elle.
First, check out the glossy’s cover girl and these amazing shots (below):

She has an Oscar and multiple Grammys, now @ladygaga adds beauty entrepreneur and mental health champion to her résumé. For our December cover, Gaga sat down with @oprah to discuss her exponential career path. “I really view my career as a rebellion against all the things in the world that I see to be unkind. Kindness heals the world. Kindness heals people. It’s what brings us together—it’s what keeps us healthy.” Link in bio to read the full interview.

@ladygaga on those #BradleyCooper rumors: “For me, as a performer and as an actress, of course we wanted people to believe that we were in love. And we wanted people to feel that love at the Oscars. We mapped the whole thing out—it was orchestrated as a performance.” Link in bio to read the full interview with @oprah.

“[When I look at my Oscar], I see a lot of pain,” @ladygaga told @oprah for our December issue. “I was raped when I was 19 years old, repeatedly. I have been traumatized in a variety of ways by my career over the years from many different things, but I survived, and I’ve kept going.” Link in bio for the full interview.

In the interview though, Winfrey got straight to the point and asked how GaGa felt about all the speculation she and Cooper had an off-set romance. As you’ll recall, the speculation really got its legs after the two performed their hit song, Shallow, at the 2019 Oscars. To this, she replied:
“Quite frankly, I think the press is very silly. I mean, we made a love story. For me, as a performer and as an actress, of course we wanted people to believe that we were in love.”
The Poker Face crooner continued, explaining the laugh she and Bradley shared at our expense. She said:
“We wanted people to feel that love at the Oscars. We wanted it to go right through the lens of that camera and to every television that it was being watched on. And we worked hard on it, we worked for days. We mapped the whole thing out — it was orchestrated as a performance. In truth, when we talked about it, we went, ‘Well, I guess we did a good job!’”
The only two people who probably thought they did too good of a job were her then-fiancé, Christian Carino, and the Hangover star’s then-girlfriend, Irina Shayk, who respectively ended their relationships with the stars around the time those dating rumors reached their peak.
But as the starlet noted, their sultry vibes were all part of an act! Oprah also told the performer of her own conversation with Cooper and shared his reaction to reports of their supposed secret affair:
“We were talking about all the rumors about you guys last year. He said if they had been true, he never would have been able to look you in the eye sitting at that piano. He said his Catholic guilt would have never let him be able to look you in the eye at that piano.”
Well, there you have it — straight from both sources!
The Born This Way artist continued her chat with the talk show legend, getting real about a deep, dark part of her past: admitting to battles with her mental health and how she used to cut herself. She confessed:
“I was a cutter for a long time, and the only way that I was able to stop cutting and self-harming myself was to realize that what I was doing was trying to show people that I was in pain instead of telling them and asking for help. When I realized that telling someone, ‘Hey, I am having an urge to hurt myself,’ that defused it. I then had someone next to me saying, ‘You don’t have to show me. Just tell me: What are you feeling right now?’ And then I could just tell my story.”
Wow. What a raw, brave, and powerful admission.
GaGa said she was reluctant to share this painful truth but noted she’s “grateful” she no longer self-harms and chose to be transparent now as not to “glamorize it.”
The musician also spoke at length about her experience as a sexual assault survivor after being repeatedly raped at the age of 19, as well as how she struggled to live with what happened to her while managing chronic pain brought on by fibromyalgia.
The star said hopes she can serve as an inspiration to others going through similar situations:
“I have PTSD. I have chronic pain. Neuropathic pain trauma response is a weekly part of my life. I’m on medication; I have several doctors. This is how I survive. But you know what, Oprah? I kept going, and that kid out there or even that adult out there who’s been through so much, I want them to know that they can keep going, and they can survive, and they can win their Oscar. I would also beckon to anyone to try, when they feel ready, to ask for help. And I would beckon to others that if they see someone suffering, to approach them and say, ‘Hey, I see you. I see that you’re suffering, and I’m here. Tell me your story.’”
As her career continues to grow and evolve, both musically and in the world of film, the entertainer reflected on how her purpose has shifted to something bigger than herself:
“I think as my career has grown and changed and I’ve done different things, I’ve become very mindful of my position in the world and my responsibility to humanity and to those who follow me. And I consider myself to be a kindness punk. I look back at everything I’ve done, and I look at what I’m doing now, and punks, you know, have a sort of reputation for being rebellious, right? So for me, I really view my career, and even what I’m doing now, as a rebellion against all the things in the world that I see to be unkind. Kindness heals the world. Kindness heals people. It’s what brings us together—it’s what keeps us healthy.”
Now, with the launch of her very first makeup line under the name Haus Laboratories, GaGa is excited to contribute to the conversation of inclusivity in a new way. She added:
“I wanted to do it because (a), I had the time—I wanted to put everything into it, which I do with everything that I do. I don’t just put a company together, hire a staff, and have them do it. I said this the other night at our launch: “My fingerprints are all over this. It’s a crime scene.” And (b), I felt that I had the platform and had built the foundation around what I stand for, so that when this company came out, it would be a rebellion in a kind way against the status quo of beauty as it is today, which is in many ways on social media, a competition. It’s a beauty pageant in a lot of ways. This company exists in an influential space in culture where we say, “Our Haus. Your Rules.” And everyone is welcome—all gender identities.”
It sounds like girl took a page from Rihanna‘s book, as the Fenty Beauty creator has taken the beauty world by storm in recent years with her messages of diversity and representation for all.
But, hey, here’s more than enough room for everyone to thrive and we’re here for it!

Lady GaGa is single and ready to meet someone who can handle her!
As we reported, the pop superstar announced her split from audio engineer Dan Horton in an Instagram Story last week, celebrating her newly single status at a friend’s bachelorette bash.
Now, a source has come forward to shed some light on what happened between the pair — and while it’s not a particularly large cup of tea, it’s still piping hot! Like, espresso hot.
It’s a piping hot cup of espresso!
The insider told Us Weekly:
“Gaga does want to date again. Dan was not mature enough for her.”
Oh? Well, damn!
It’s sad to hear things didn’t work out: the two seemed quite happy throughout their quick romance, which was first unveiled to the public in July when the pair were spotted kissing while out to brunch in Studio City, California.
As fans know, Horton began working with the Shallow singer in November 2018 before she launched her Enigma residency in Las Vegas.
The duo’s relationship was largely private, but the A Star Is Born actress showed a peek at one of their date nights back in September. Sharing a photo on her IG Story of a candlelit dinner, she wrote:
“The @dhortonaudio special.”
Horton also appeased GaGa’s wilder side.
Back in August, the two enjoyed a joint The Cure and The Pixies concert in Pasadena, California, with GaGa captioning an IG Story clip of the show:
“I love the cure, felt my old self come alive tonight what a show.”
Awww. It sounds like these two were a great fit on paper (and IG Story) — but we guess he just didn’t tick GaGa’s maturity box!
This wouldn’t be the star’s first tango with an allegedly immature partner. As we reported, she broke off her engagement to Christian Carino in February of this year, when they split after almost two full years together. The talent agent reportedly had trouble letting their romance go, causing GaGa to have to put her foot down and tell him to stop contacting her.
If only there was a truly mature partner GaGa could find. Someone who could take charge of a scene. Someone who could amicably raise a child with an ex. Someone who could carry a tune, too.
Keep looking, Gagz! Your perfect match is out there somewhere!
