Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel Both Getting Divorced

5 Jan

I always thought that there was a slight chance that Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel were the same person, or, at the very least, separated from birth.

And then, they both announced divorces from their respective husbands (Russell Brand and  Ben Gibbard) within days of one another.

Conspiracy?

(All kidding aside – they do look A LOT alike. LOL.)

For your (mind-boggling) viewing pleasure:

That all being said, we’re sorry to hear about the misfortunes of these unlucky-in-love ladies. Seems to be so hard to keep a Hollywood marriage alive….

Glitzburgh Glam: Lady Gaga, Best or Worst Dressed? -By Natalie DeBarto, Intern

28 Dec

When it comes to Lady Gaga, it’s impossible to be shocked by her outfits. After all, she did strut the stage is an outfit made of raw meat, and nothing can beat that on the shock meter. It seems this year she has been voted at the top and the bottom of the outfit pole. Sometimes she’s put together and fashionable, and other times she’s, well, covered in meat. Here’s the best and worst of Lady Gaga:

Best:

**Even though the character was annoying, Gaga looked great in the outfit!

Worst:

Lady Gaga definitely has more good outfits than bad, and her unique sense of fashion is changing the industry. Who knows, maybe the fashion of 2012 will include studded platforms, and meat dresses. Fashion is an ever changing world.

Glitzburgh Glam: Prada Headphones – Listen to Music in Style!

22 Dec

If you have $595 to spare, you can listen to music in style with the new Prada headphones.

It isn’t a new concept – some of the Beats by Dr. Dre are pretty stylish (see: Lady Gaga Heartbeats) and we accessorize and brand everything else (Michael Kors iPhone wallets, Juicy Couture and Kate Spade phone cases, even diamond-encrusted contacts, and Dolce & Gabanna eyeglasses) so why NOT rock some designer headphones?

What do you think — are they worth the money or just a waste?

Glitzburgh Glam: Carey Mulligan’s Copycat Covers

7 Dec

If you subscribe to Vogue magazine, and, perchance, happened to pick up a copy of the most recent issue of the French ELLE Magazine, you’d likely end up puzzled and surprised — with a bad case of deja-vu!

Why, you ask?

The latest cover of French ELLE is nearly identical to an October 2010 issue of Vogue magazine.

The photo, shot in 2010 in the South of France by Peter Lindbergh, features actress and fashion plate Carey Mulligan with styling by Vogue’s Grace Coddington.

The magazines are competitors, and not within the same publishing house, so the situation leaves many questions unanswered.

Kim Kardashian’s Wedding Headpiece – Were You a Fan?

22 Aug

This is hard-hitting news! (Kidding…)

… Sure, a lot of people would rather gouge their eyes out than listen to more “news” surrounding the Kardashian-Humphries nuptials  that took place this past weekend. However, I’m not one of them. SORRY! I happen to be a fan of both Kim AND weddings, so, I was elated to see photos from the (gorgeous!) ceremony.

One thing — aside from her “why-is-she-even-famous” status — that has been causing somewhat of a ruckus, though, was her headpiece. So, what were your thoughts on it – yay or nay?  Like or dislike?

It wouldn’t suit my personal tastes, but, I think that it is appropriate given Kardashian’s Armenian roots. Kind of gives her a “Princess Jasmine” a la Aladdin feel, right?

Raise the Jolly Roger! Pittsburgh Pirates – Winning!

9 Jul

In the words of Charlie Sheen – “Winning!”

… That’s what the Buccos have been doing! Raise the Jolly Roger – the Pittsburgh Pirates are making Da’ Burgh believe again!

We haven’t had a winning season since 1992, but this year it looks as though the Pirates are out to prove that they aren’t the joke of MLB, as they’ve been portrayed as in recent years.

They’ve been playing in front of sell-out crowds at the gorgeous PNC Park….playing, and actually winning quite a few!

Last night, the Bucs won 7-4 with an exciting 3-run homer by Michael McKenry that had the entire crowd up on their feet. Many Pittsburghers stated that they didn’t know the last time that fans just erupted in cheers over one hit. The excitement around town was tangible, and Twitter was lit up with joyful “Let’s Go Bucs!” tweets.

They play the Cubs again tonight at PNC Park, 7:05pm. You can see McKenry’s hit here: http://mlb.mlb.com/index.jsp?c_id=pit

The Pirates are currently 2nd in the National League Central.

As ESPN put it, “The Pirates would be a good bandwagon to jump on right now.” Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Pittsburgh Steelers MVP & DWTS Champ Hines Ward Busted for DUI

9 Jul

He’s a talented athlete who is known for his gregarious smile and his effortless charm. However, today, Pittsburgh Steelers’ Hines Ward has nothing to smile about.

Earlier in the year, he was handcuffed for a “misunderstanding” in Los Angeles while filming Dancing with the Stars (which he subsequently went on to win.)

But this time, the handcuffs were no mistake. Hines Ward was arrested early this morning in Georgia on DUI charges.

The Steelers receiver and Super Bowl MVP has been largely known as one of the most well-respected players in the NFL, but this drunk-driving charge may tarnish that image.

Ward was arrested in Dekalb County, Georgia, and held on $1,000 bond, posting shortly after the arrest and being thereafter released.

Gossip site TMZ was among the first to break the news. Ward grew up in Georgia and went to school there. Some sports pundits are speculating whether or not the NFL Lockout is giving players too much free time.

Ward is expected to release a statement this afternoon.

The mugshot photo is below. This incident unfortunately comes on the heels of a popular tabloid magazine (on stands now) boasting “Who’s Gay, Who’s Not” with Ward featured as one of the celebrities on the cover. This just isn’t his week.
