Shakira wowed a New York audience last week, and now she has a new video out for ‘Loca,’ featuring British rapper Dizzee Rascal. ‘Loca’ is the first single from Shakira’s new album ‘Sale el Sol (The Sun Comes Out),’ out Oct. 19
Hot pink can be an obnoxious color at times, but definitely not on Shakira. When she posed for her photoshoot on Thursday in Ibiza, Spain, Shakira’s poster perfect body was shimmering in the sun. She wore a huge, hot pink tulle skirt that cascaded behind her with a matching bikini-esque top. The color was perfect on her tan, toned body and dirty blonde locks.
Sandra Bullock filed for a temporary restraining order on Monday against a man she claims has been stalking her since 2003, E!Online reports. Thomas James Weldon was given a permanent restraining order in 2003 after Bullock reported his repeated attempts to contact her.
Permanent restraining orders last three years in California and after one extension in 2006, the order ended last year.
After the first restraining order in 2003, Weldon checked himself into a Tennessee psychiatric facility. Bullock later sued the state in 2006 to ensure she’d be notified when he was released.
Apparently, that didn’t happen. Per the request filed by Bullock, Weldon showed up in Wyoming emergency room last month complaining of anxiety and sleeplessness. He told hospital personnel that had driven from Tennessee hoping to meet Bullock at her Jackson Hole, Wyoming home. He also told doctors he communicated with Bullock telepathically and that he was not taking his medications, according to the Associated Press.
“His preoccupation with Ms. Bullock is obvious,” Dr. Jiri Danczik, a psychiatrist, wrote in a sworn declaration.
In addition to Bullock, the request lists her adopted son Louis, her nanny, housekeeper and assistant as people who need protection from Weldon.
Actress Julianne Moore stripped down for Bulgari’s Fall-Winter 2010-11 ad campaign, striking a pose wearing nothing but bling-blingy jewels. The 49-year-old looks stunning alongside adorable lion cubs and super-expensive handbags. Moore was also the face of the luxury brand’s Spring-Summer 2010 campaign. Both series were shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Take a look:
Julia Roberts feels she makes a better spokesmodel now that she’s in her forties. The 42-year-old actress was recently named the face of French cosmetics brand Lancome, a brand she claims to have used for years.
In an interview with the UK’s Stylist magazine, Roberts said, “I couldn’t really work with a company whose products I haven’t used and enjoyed over a long period of time. I have Lancome eye cream on my counter and Hydra Zen face cream, and I love Lancome mascara and sun cream. I think that if you have very little time, eye cream and sunscreen are really the keys.”
Roberts is particularly happy to fill the brand rep role now that she’s reached her fourth decade, saying, “The whole idea of modeling in my 40s, I think, is very modern and fun. There’s a kind of joy and sense of fun to doing it right now, a sense of being secure in who you are that I feel today in my 40s.”
World Cup organizers promise a high-tech closing ceremony featuring pop star Shakira, compared to the more traditionally African ceremony which opened the tournament.
Organizing committee spokesman Jermaine Craig says Sunday’s show at Soccer City will be “more youthful and a bit more technologically advanced” than the June 11 opening ceremony.
Craig says the nighttime event has “nice lighting effects and special effects planned.”
The closing ceremony is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. local time, two hours before the final match kicks off.
Colombian star Shakira will perform the official tournament anthem “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).” Shakira also performed the song at a June 10 World Cup concert in Soweto.
Cameron Diaz is a 37-year-old bachelorette, and she’s perfectly happy with her unmarried life. In fact, Cameron thinks monogamy is outdated, and she says it’s perfectly acceptable not to spend your life with one partner.
She said: “Relationships can last two, five or 20 years. I don’t believe in sharing your bed with the same person your whole life, though. That might be a reality for some, but it surely isn’t for me.”
Cameron — who has enjoyed a string of high-profile romances with the likes of Justin Timberlake, Matt Dillon and Jared Leto — believes society puts too much pressure on people to get married and says there is nothing wrong with staying single.
She added in an interview with German magazine Bunte: “You don’t find true love, it finds you. Somewhere out there, there’s someone you can share your love with. Our society tries to makes us believe you’re ready for love at 18, have to get married and spend the rest of your life with the same man. Bullsh*t!
“That’s not the ideal anymore these days. Some people find their true love at 50 and with today’s life expectancy you could live another 50 years with that person. Just imagine having to sleep with the same guy for 20, 30 or even 50 years. If you can’t you shouldn’t go there.”
How big is the Twilight phenomenon for you when you’re not one of the main love triangle actors?
Ashley Greene: It’s huge for all of us. Even though it’s Rob, Kristen and Taylor in this love triangle, Alice still has her own thing going on. I’m lucky enough to still have someone like Jackson Rathbone to have my own love story with in the movie, with Alice and Jasper. So it’s still fun.
What do you miss getting to do anonymously now that you’re famous?
Ashley Greene: Walking around without any makeup on and without doing my hair.
Why are girls so into Edward? Do you see it?
Ashley Greene: For me, I think that thing about Edward is that he’s very mysterious and he’s kind of got that bad boy thing going on. He’s dangerous but he’s got a good heart and really wants to protect this girl, and honestly kind of puts aside what he wants to make sure that she’s safe. I think that’s a hard thing to find. He also is such a gentleman. He pulls out chairs, opens doors and he’s the one that’s willing to wait for Bella and wants everything to be correct and right.
So that’s what women want.
Ashley Greene: I mean, I think so. At least, that’s what I kind of want. You don’t want someone who is waiting on you hand and foot and is like, “Yes dear, no dear.” You want someone who does have their own opinions and is comfortable with who they are, but also embraces you and treats you like you should be treated. You kind of get the best of everything.
Since you’re not in every scene of the movies, how do you spend your down time?
Ashley Greene: We were there for three months and we’ve been there, in Vancouver, a lot but it’s really nice. I love going back there because it’s so beautiful and you can walk outside and it’s a breath of fresh air. I enjoy nature and I like running outside and hiking and stuff like that so I really enjoy it. What’s great is that for this one, it’s very physical. There’s a lot of action in Eclipse and we had fight training but we also had personal training. The trainers were like, “Whatever you want to do, if you want to go hiking, if you want to go kayaking, if you want to go swimming.” They were kind of up for anything which kept it really fun.
I guess all the stars have personal trainers. I wonder if it really makes a difference.
Ashley Greene: It depends. I think that there is a point where you can take what personal trainers give you and you can do it on your own. For me, I will do all the cardio in the world but I hate doing weights. So I need someone to tell me to do them. I think it depends on the person but I also think that it’s like a doctor. There’s someone that specializes in that area. They know every muscle. They know how they move. They know how to target certain areas, so for me, it’s just easier.
You had a modeling background before these films. Do you think that helps your acting?
Ashley Greene: I mean, I think certainly the modeling world makes you aware of your body, how it moves or it looks like for sure. I definitely love acting a lot more than I love modeling. For me, modeling was kind of boring. Unless you’re a supermodel, you’re kind of just a hanger and there’s really no creativity in it. It certainly does help though with the press aspect of it. You’re doing photo shoots and stuff like that to be able to be comfortable, and to know your way around a camera helps.
So you don’t miss it.
Ashley Greene: I was the worst model ever, because I was short.
Short? You look about 5’9″.
Ashley Greene: I’m like 5’6” so it made it a lot harder. They would call me for jobs and meetings and stuff like that and I would never, ever go unless I couldn’t pay my rent. Then I would go and then I would do a job and work here and there.
Since you were an ex-model, is it important not to be cast as the pretty girl in every movie?
Ashley Greene: Not as long as it’s a pretty girl that has something beneath the surface. This is Hollywood, so even the “girls next door” are pretty. She needs to have something else going on. She has to be conflicted. She has to have layers. I think it’s boring to be the girl that walks down the hallway and all the guys stare at you. It’s the same thing with modeling. It’s boring. You don’t get to creatively do anything or create any kind of world. So it just depends on what the circumstances are.
So who are you wearing today?
Ashley Greene: I like to mix it up a little bit. I don’t think that you have to wear one designer. I believe very much in pieces, statement pieces. I think if you have a Chanel blazer, you can wear jeans and a T-shirt and it looks very put together and it’s comfortable. I love being glamorous and dressing up on the carpet. I love being comfortable in my everyday life. It’s kind of nice because I get the best of both worlds. I have just become a huge fan of Antonio Berardi because he understands women’s bodies. You don’t have to be a stick to fit into the clothes. They’re very complimentary. At this point, I’m exploring again having a lot of fun with it. I grew up in Jacksonville, Fla. so I was a jeans, T-shirt, flip flop girl so it’s kind of nice to be able to play with clothing.
Now you’re the Style Icon of Young Hollywood.
Ashley Greene: The Style Icon award was a really, really incredible thing for me to be able to accept because I don’t walk around every day like I’m on a runway. When I was younger, I wasn’t necessarily confident. I didn’t have a personal style, didn’t know who I was. Now I dress for me and it’s nice that people appreciate that.
Twilight‘s Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were unable to make it to the London premiere of their latest franchise flick, Eclipse—but luckily co-star Ashley Greene was there to pick up the slack.
Ashley walked the red carpet at London’s Odeon at Leicester Square in a fabulous sequin-embellished mini dress by L’Wren Scott. It was a big departure from her previous premiere ensemble: a draped strapless couture gown by Alexis Mabile that left most of her body modestly covered.
Greene matched the shine of her dress with a pair of satin Brian Atwood “Wagner” pumps in a steely blue. A breezy side-braided ‘do (see how to get the look here), diamond earrings and a white clutch made this a look to remember.
