Celine Dion Gets Sexy for V Magazine
Celine Dion made us gasp and stare at the September issue of V magazine, showing unusual amounts of skin in a racy photoshoot. The “My Heart Will Go On” singer revealed a never-before-seen side of Celine, posing topless, pinned to a fence in a creepy “Donnie Darko”-inspired bunny mask, and walking around sans pants for the Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele-styled shoot.
Photographer Sebastian Faena captured the images in the privacy of her Florida home, and Celine explained that this wild side is really nothing new. “I’ve been an open book all my life, and I think that’s why people like me,” Dion said during her interview with the mag. “I’ve been criticized for it, but I’m not forcing myself to be the person that you see.”
Inside the magazine, the singer also gushed about Adele, saying, “I think that her whole image is very good! The way that she is will definitely help the new generation of girls accept themselves.”
The 44-year-old Canadian star also commented on Whitney Houston, telling V magazine, “I was just in shock when Whitney’s life had been taken because of drugs. It’s a big loss for all of us.” Dion’s September issue hits stands Aug. 30.
Nicki Minaj Shows Off New Perfume Bottle
Nicki Minaj has revealed the playful bottle for her highly-anticipated Pink Friday perfume! It bottle spotlights the fabulous rapper’s flamboyant aesthetic and takes the form of a miniature Minaj, dipped in gold with her signature pink hair and a white bustier. But the real question is, what does it smell like? There’s no official report, but Nicki tweeted that it smells “like angels playing.”
Azealia Banks Creates a Lipstick With M.A.C
Azealia Banks has become the toast of the fashion industry, lauded by top designers like Karl Lagerfeld and Alexander Wang. Now the emerald-haired songstress will take her tough vocals to fashion’s biggest extravaganza, Fashion’s Night Out: Banks will be performing at M.A.C. Cosmetics’ new SoHo boutique in NYC on Sept. 6.
To celebrate this evening of style, the singer has also teamed up with the beauty brand to create a limited-edition lipstick, a dark, blackened violet hue reminiscent of the lip color she rocked on the cover of her breakout “1991” EP. The Banks-inspired lipstick will be available online starting Sept. 5 and in stores the following day.
Lady Gaga Goes Brunette
Lady Gaga is blonde no more! Well… sort of. Mother Monster debuted a new brunette look on Twitter last week, but told fans not to worry, because she would still be blonde for the remainder of her “Born This Way Ball” tour. The brunette ‘do, Gaga wrote, is for her upcoming “ARTPOP” project.
The “Born This Way” star tweeted out a few photos of her dark locks, writing, “Definitely feeling less blond lately and little more progressive brunette. I am LOUIS VUITTON BROWN.”
Since before Gene Harlow, Hollywood’s most flamboyant stars have almost always been blonde. It’s almost become a formula for the iconic pop star image — Madonna, Britney Spears and even Nicki Minaj have all followed suit, and Gaga looks ready to change that trend.
It’s a huge change, but we love Gaga’s new brown hair. Blonde is so last season! What do you think of the singer’s new look?
