Showbiz Roundup: Shhh, did you hear?

Shh 14 febDavid Beckham Surprises Typhoon Victims

We could spend the entire day (probably longer) reeling off the reasons as to why we love David Beckham so much, but today he gave us yet another reason to consider him the epitome of perfection. Oh, David. As a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, Becks headed over to the Philippines earlier this week. The surprise visit for was for the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan and judging by the pictures he proved a big hit with the children, bringing smiles to their faces. The former footballer, who is a father of four, said: “”As a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, seeing how children are being given a sense of normality amidst the rubble of their communities has been amazing.  I want to show people around the world how their generous donations have had an enormous impact.” As part of his visit, David went to one of the evacuation points for the locals, situated in Tacloban. He said that: “I was humbled to visit Tacloban and see how people are still so full of spirit despite the devastation they have suffered. Close to 6 million children are affected and many have lost loved ones.” The 38-year-old heart-throb is quite the philanthropist and hit the headlines last November for donating hundreds of designer clothes to the British Red Cross shop drop. Becks and wife Victoria, donated clothes in an effort raise money for the Typhoon victims. Possibly our favourite couple. Like, ever.

Lil KimLil Kim Shock Pregnancy

On Thursday, Lil Kim surprised audience at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, by turning up at The Blonds show with a gigantic baby bump! Unlike the awkward Jennifer Aniston burger bump earlier from last year, there was no denying that Lil Kim was expecting. The rapper turned up to the show on Wednesday, February 12th wearing a floor length dress, teamed with a Blonds hot pink fur coat (whether it was faux fur is still unknown) and announced that she was a couple of months pregnant. She told Us Weekly: “I’m so excited! I’m a few months along, I can’t wait to be a mom!” It seemed that not even pregnancy will deter the star from the hardcore lifestyle that is showbiz and she carried on to the after party that took place at Gilded Lily, even taking some mic time! She said: “I’m a mom, but I can turn it up a little! I’m still going to work,” . It was at then that she broke into a rendition of her hit “Lighters Up”. There are no clues as to who the baby daddy is at this point in time but Lil Kim was last romantically linked to boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.

James-ArthurJames Arthur Latest Twitter Controversy

Sigh. It appears that if this week has taught us one thing, it’s that James Arthur is definitely not one to learn from his mistakes. The former X Factor winner has been trending again on Twitter, this time shouting out about the “bullies” that are the British media. The “Recovery” singer lashed out, going as far as to say: “If I was anyone else I’d have killed myself by now.” The whole uproar came after accusations were made against the twenty five year old that claimed he sent lewd and abusive messages to a model, to which he strongly denies. He tweeted: “‘Pops biggest misogynist and homophobe’ ‘death threats’ you have no idea. These writers are the bullies not me. This girl is not a victim.” Only minutes after this, another tweet from James read: “If I was anyone else id have killed myself by now with the abuse I’ve suffered because of the British media vilifying me.” He then went on to say that he wished he was poor and unknown. Unfortunately for James, this all comes pretty quickly after he made his return to Twitter, after taking a break following accusations of being homophobic and a very public dispute with Frankie Boyle. He gave a publicly apology at the time on the show that initially gave him the fame, The X Factor.

Sabrina Teenage witchSabrina The Teenage Witch Co-stars Reunite

Let’s change the trend to throwback Friday and take a trip down memory lane, right back to the naughty nineties. The era of butterfly hair grips, pedal pushes and crop tops was also the age of some iconic TV shows including our very favourite Sabrina The Teenage Witch. The show ran from 1996 through to 2002 and was a favourite to teenage girls on both sides of the pond. Everyone wanted to be the cute, flick and point, squeaky clean teenager who lived with her two aunts, Hilda and Zelda. Luckily, we’re now one step closer to seeing that reunion! Melissa Joan Hart, now 37, is currently starring in the popular US TV show Melissa and Joey and is set to be reunited with her Aunt Zelda (the more serious of the two). Beth Broderick, who played the down to earth and stricter of the two aunts, will reportedly join Hart and play a doctor on the show who has some shocking news for her former niece.
Now all we need is some talk of Salem and Harvey and we definitely know what we’re outing at the top of next Thursday’s throwback!

Kristen Stewart MCKristen Stewart Confronts THAT Affair

The 23-year-old former Twilight lead is to the front cover of Marie Claire’s March edition and is in a tell-all interview. The actress has never been one to play up to the cameras and judging by the tone of this interview, the starlet will be keeping herself as the girl we’ve come to know. Slightly standoffish but always intriguing, and now infamous for having an affair with her married Snow White And The Huntsman director, Rupert Sandford, Digital Spy reports her indirect address of the short fling and Stewart tells Marie Claire “I stand by every mistake I have ever made, so judge away.” The confidence shouldn’t be taken for granted though as Kirsten openly expresses her awkward nature for attention and press, saying: “People are like, ‘She just can’t handle’ – for lack of a better word – ‘the spotlight’. No, actually. I can’t, and that is totally who I am.
“I love being an actor, but I’m the last person to want to have a birthday party. I don’t try to force it or turn into something else or fabricate this personality… So I totally agree when people say I’m the most awkward person.”
The interview can be read in full in March’s edition of Marie Claire, out now.

Sophia Mead

Sophia is a greedy graduate not content with building up her credentials in one half of her joint honours degree. By day, she is a junior PR Executive, racing around trying to conquer the world of public relations but by night frantically taps away at her keyboard, getting lost in the realms of celebrity culture and sharing the stories with her own “Sophia spin”. Sophia is unashamedly obsessed with meaningful quotes and whilst blissfully content with the simple things in life, she’s far too ambitious to ever let them be enough until she is carrying on her person that perfect Chanel bag.
