Ink It Up: The 5 Best Celeb Tattoos

Ink It Up: The 5 Best Celeb TattoosA survey in 2012 showed that 1 in 5 adults has a tattoo. But celebrities get a lot more freedom in that department. It seems like every time a big celebrity gets a tattoo, it’s all over the news and impossible to miss. So here are just a few awesome tattoos we’ve seen on our favorite celebrities.

  1. Rihanna

In September 2012, Rihanna got a chest piece tattoo as a tribute to her late grandmother. The internet was very excited about this tattoo because it caused Rihanna to pose shirtless for a lot more photos. When tweeting the picture of her new tattoo, Rihanna wrote:

“Goddess Isis – Complete Woman – Model for future generations – #GRANGRANDOLLY – always in and on my heart.”

  1. Angelina Jolie

The beautiful actress has a list of coordinates on her upper arm. The longitude and latitude correlate to when her adopted children came into her life. The places include Cambodia, Ethiopia, Namibia, Vietnam, and France. The seventh line of the list tattoo is the coordinates of her husband Brad Pitt’s birthplace in Oklahoma.


  1. Cara Delevingne

This star has become hugely popular recently as a Victoria Secret model and an actress in Paper Towns. She has almost 25 million followers on instagram and uses this platform this show off her tattoos. Her first tattoo was a lion on her pointer finger. She explains that she’s a Leo and that the tattoo is a reminder to be fearless.

  1. Hayley Williams

The fiery lead singer of the band Paramore has a rectangle with three bars tattooed on her wrist. Her and her two bandmates Jeremy Davis and Taylor York all have the same tattoo to signify their unity as a band. The three bars represent the three of the band members. The tattoo soon became the logo for the band.

  1. Halsey

My favorite artist got three x’s tattooed on her hand in 2015. After getting it she tweeted, “Now I’m the human version of a parental advisory sticker.” Halsey is not known for censoring herself and got a tattoo to demonstrate that to others. Overall, the coolest tattoo ever.

Cool fan gave me this. Be proud of who you are. #BiVisibility

If you ever need inspiration for a tattoo or just find stories interesting, look into celebrity tattoos! Some are simply beautiful pieces they chose to decorate their bodies with while others have touching stories behind them.

Snapchat with Celebs: Who should you be following?

Snapchat with Celebs: Who should you be following?It’s no secret that celebs are all about social media. First, the trendy thing was Twitter. Then, everyone started making Instagram accounts (and thank God for that — what would we do without the knowledge of what Chrissy Teigen eats at every meal?). Now, it seems like everyone who’s anyone has Snapchat. Although it can get a little TMI with certain people, Snapchat is actually a pretty cool way to keep up with your favorite celebrities on a more personal level. Check out these famous accounts if you’re looking for some serious entertainment!

Shay Mitchell (@officialshaym)

Shay is one of my favorite Snapchatters. She’s the type of person that is always doing something, and she seems to always be willing to share her adventures with her fans. As of recent, her snaps have been filled with book signings for her new novel, Bliss, as well as with fun photo shoots and filming of Pretty Little Liars.

Ryan Seacrest (@ryanseacrest)

That’s right, everyone’s favorite host has a Snapchat! Here, you can get a behind-the-scenes look at red carpet events and see footage that you won’t find on any televised coverage.

Justin Bieber (@rickthesizzler)

As we’ve learned from recent events in Bora Bora, the “What Do You Mean?” singer is certainly not camera-shy. The Biebs loves taking pouty selfies and snapping clips of his fans at various concerts.

Calvin Harris (@calvinharris)

I’ll be honest and admit that I’m here mostly for any romantic T-Swift shots (which have yet to appear on my phone screen), but in the meantime, the DJ is quite active on Snapchat nonetheless. He’s a bigger fan of the selfie than you might guess, although he tends to take a more humorous route than Bieber, often poking fun at himself and those around him.

Rihanna (@rihanna)

I love Rihanna’s Snapchat stories. They’re just what you’d expect from her, if a bit more toned-down. Last week, she showed her fans a full day of wine tasting with her mother and friends and gave us a peek inside the primping process before a big event, because who doesn’t want to know what the day in the life of Rihanna is like?

Kylie Jenner (@kylizzlemynizzl)

I think it is safe to say that Kylie is the queen (or shall we say #kingkylie?) of Snapchat. She’s probably the most active out of everyone on this list, and shares a large variety of snaps, as well. On a regular day, you’ll probably see her getting her hair and makeup done, playing with her dogs, videos of her friends, shots of her many expensive cars and famous boyfriend Tyga hanging around her house. In short, Kylie never fails to keep her fans in the know.

Let us know what your favorite Snapchat accounts are below, and be sure to give some of these celebs a follow!

Going (nearly) Nude for Gold: Rihanna’s ‘Pour It Up’ & Miley Cyrus’s ‘Wrecking Ball’ Music Videos

Rihanna’s latest music video has been a scandal, as per usual. Pour It Up was banned within ten minutes of airing on VEVO, and replaced with a less explicit version. It seems like Miley and Rihanna are in a competition to show the most skin, if you recall the video for Wrecking Ball,” in which Cyrus rides a wrecking ball buck naked. But Rihanna, looking racier than ever in her diamante bra, blonde wig, dark shades, fur coat, denim thong and dollar-bill print pumps—she makes her statement loud and clear: Move over Miley, you have been dethroned. Rihanna’s taking it from here, surrounded inexplicably by strippers, smoke and money. Continue reading

2012 VMA Predictions Are In!

2012 VMA Predictions Are In!

It was August 2011 in the City of Angels, Lady Gaga opened the show in  full ‘Jo Calderone’ mode, Britney bagged herself two awards but the most talked about moment of the night (the crowd went WILD) has got to be Papa Jigga bursting with joy as Beyonce revealed her baby bump to the world.. cue ‘awwwwhs’ all over the globe!

Yes, it’s that time of year again – The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards are returning to LA, honoring some of the biggest and best music videos from the previous year. So, Beyonce won’t be dropping any bombshells this time round but it’s gonna be one hell of a show for sure.

The nominations are in with R&B’s finest Drake and RiRi leading the pack with 5 each for ‘Take Care’ with last years big winner, Pop siren Katy Perry coming close behind with 4 nominations, with Queen Bey also getting 4.

It’s been a good year for music with some amazing music videos but here’s a few (the most important ones) winners predictions  for you!

Video Of The Year

Drake feat. Rihanna – ‘Take Care’
Gotye feat. Kimbra  – ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’
M.I.A. – ‘Bad Girls’
Katy Perry  – ‘Wide Awake’
Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris – ‘We Found Love’

The big one! Last years winner Katy Perry has been nominated again, although with RiRi getting two nominations solo and her duet with Drizzy, I think she’s going to bag this one. The controversy she caused for dancing in that farmers field, causing chaos through the streets of Belfast, being from the Emerald Isle, I have to go for ‘We Found Love’.

Best Male Video

Justin Bieber – ‘Boyfriend’
Frank Ocean – ‘Swim Good’
Drake Feat. Rihanna – ‘Take Care’
Chris Brown – ‘Turn Up the Music’
Usher –  ‘Climax

This has got to go to the most talked about man in R&B at the minute, Frank Ocean for ‘Swim Good’, saying that Drake could go home with gold for ‘Take Care’ despite it being a duet. Chris Brown’s the underdog with ‘Turn Up The Music’, but everyone loves an underdog to come out on top don’t they..

Best Female Video

Rihanna – ‘We Found Love’
Katy Perry – ‘Part of Me’
Beyonce – ‘Love on Top’
Nicki Minaj – ‘Starships’
Selena Gomez & The Scene – ‘Love You Like a Love Song’

Tough call this one, could go to any of the nominees, 5 brilliant videos BUT Katy Perry has the edge, she’s the strongest contender, ‘Part Of Me’ shows us the intense dark side of usually colourful quirky pop star, and it’s an amazing song to get you over that one who broke your heart.

Best New Artist

Fun. feat. Janelle Monae – ‘We Are Young’
Carly Rae Jepsen – ‘Call Me Maybe’
Frank Ocean – ‘Swim Good’
One Direction –‘What Makes You Beautiful’
The Wanted – ‘Glad You Came’

It’s gonna be one hell of a showdown, a battle of the British boybands as The Wanted and One Direction go head to head to bring the moonman back to the UK. Although there’s a chance that neither will win, Carly Rae Jepson with her summer smash ‘Call Me Maybe’ or Fun & Janelle Monae with the anthem ‘We Are Young’ could easily take home the prize. My bet is tha One Direction will win, teen girls everywhere will no doubt make sure of that, surely!

Best Hip-Hop Video

Childish Gambino –  ‘Heartbeat’
Drake feat. Lil Wayne – ‘HYFR’
Kanye West feat. Pusha T, Big Sean & 2 Chainz – ‘Mercy’
Watch the Throne – ‘Paris’
Nicki Minaj feat. 2 Chainz – ‘Beez in the Trap’

Wow,  is this gonna be a battle royale or what! This category has the hottest MC’s the game has to offer at the minute, YMCMB have the biggest chance of winning with 2 of their crew up for the award.  Kanye and G.O.O.D. Music are rising to the top so ‘Mercy’ could easily take the moonman home, but if I’ve to put my money on anyone, it’s gotta be Watch The Throne with ‘Paris’. Kanye and Jigga, the kaleidoscope effect – that sh*t cray! It’s a tough call though, the category is full of heat.

Best Pop Video

One Direction – ‘What Makes You Beautiful’
Fun. feat. Janelle Monae – ‘We Are Young’
Rihanna – ‘We Found Love’
Justin Bieber –‘Boyfriend’
Maroon 5 feat. Wiz Khalifa – ‘Payphone’

It’s gonna be a battle between the One Directioners and the Beliebers for this one, 5 British teen heart-throbs they may be but I think ‘Boyfriend’ will take it home. showing a more grown-up Bieber (..and that falsetto, swoon!) that appeals to his more mature  fans, yet  he still maintains the charisma that made teen girls weak at the knees all around the world.

Best Video With A Message

Demi Lovato – ‘Skyscraper’
Rise Against – ‘Ballad of Hollis Brown’
Kelly Clarkson – ‘Dark Side’
Gym Class Heroes – ‘The Fighter’
K’Naan feat. Nelly Furtado – ‘Is Anybody Out There?’
Lil Wayne – ‘How to Love’

This one has got to go to Demi Lovato, although Kelly Clarkson is a strong contender. The way Demi was able to bounce back to the pop scene with a track like ‘Skyscraper’, after fighting and more importantly overcoming her demons makes her an obvious winner to me.

Best Direction

M.I.A. – ‘Bad Girls’
Duck Sauce – ‘Big Bad Wolf’
Coldplay feat. Rihanna – ‘Princess Of China’
Frank Ocean – ‘Swim Good’
Watch the Throne – ‘Otis’

A strong category, but it’s got to go to ‘Otis’, directed by the genius that is Spike Jonze, the attention to detail is out of this world and Jigga and Yeezy are two of the biggest rappers on the planet right now, if that’s not enough for them to take home the moonman then I don’t know what is!

There you have it, some of my predictions for the VMA’s, there’s a few I haven’t mentioned, ‘Best Choreography’ being one, my money’s on Chris Brown, Breezy got some damn good moves.

As well as the excitement of the awards, there will be performances from Alicia Keys, who will be debuting her new single, eek, exciting! Frank Ocean, Taylor Swift, Pink, One Direction and American rockers Green Day! The performers aren’t the only stars taking to the stage though, Miley Cyrus, Andy Samberg, Wiz Khalifa and Ke$ha are just a few of the names mentioned to be presenting an award.

Did I mention Kevin Hart was hosting this star-studded event? Prepare yourselves’ for some quality standup and laughs throughout, he’s very easy on the eye too.. 😉

You don’t want to miss this one, tune in to the MTV VMA’s this Thursday, September 6th at 8pm in the US or if you’re in the UK, you can catch all the action on Friday, September 7th at 9pm.
