P!nk has made no secret over the fact that she and fellow artist, Christina Aguilera, shared somewhat of a strained relationship in the past.

And while P!nk has spoken openly about the issue, she has insisted that neither she nor Christina hold any ill will towards each other these days.

Given her candour on the subject, it's perhaps no surprise the Stupid Girls singer has this week taken umbrage with the current speculation surrounding the pair.

Footage of P!nk's reaction to Christina's American Music Awards performance this week has been widely circulated, with the press and public quick to suggest that the pair's feud is far from dead and buried.

Honing in on P!nk's facial expression at the esteemed award show, social media users suggested that she was unimpressed with Christina's rendition of I Will Always Love You – something P!nk was quick to shut down on Twitter.

"Waking up to see a newly created riff between myself and another incredible woman, Christina, who took on an incredible feat, who I support fully, makes me so sad," she wrote in a post which has been liked thousands of times in mere hours.

Taking aim at those who contributed to the negative dialogue, P!nk added: "You all perpetuate keeping women apart b/c you're afraid of the power we have when we get together."

Agreeing with P!nk, one Twitter user replied: "We need positivity, equality & inspiration. Not negative bullshit to tear each other apart constantly. No wonder this world is in disarray."


After becoming the subject of an online hate campaign, Gigi Hadid has defended her controversial impression of the future First Lady, Melania Trump.

Following her impersonation of Donald Trump’s wife at Sunday night’s American Music Awards ceremony in LA, the 21-year-old was branded “racist” by critics who denounced her adoption of an exaggerated European accent in a skit which referenced Michelle Obama’s “stolen” speech.

This morning, the Hilfiger model issued a statement on Twitter claiming her portrayal of Melania was conducted in “good humour and with no bad intent”.

In the handwritten note, Gigi explained how she “removed or changed anything in the script that [she] felt took the joke too far”, before stressing her belief that “Melania understands show business”.

“I too have been the centre of a nationally televised comedy skit that poked fun at my actions,” she wrote.  “And [I] was able to find the humour in it.”

“I believe Melania understands show business and the way shows are written and run.”

In her closing statement, the young star apologised to those offended by the performance and insisted she has “only the best wishes for [her] country”.


Gigi Hadid found herself at the centre of a social media storm this morning when she was hit with a wave of abuse for her impression of Melania Trump.

While hosting the 44th American Music Awards ceremony in LA last night with impression expert Jay Pharoah, the 21-year-old model openly mocked the future First Lady by impersonating Melania’s “face”, adopting an exaggerated European accent and poking fun at the plagiarism accusations waged at Ms Trump after she appeared to borrow parts of a Michelle Obama speech in July.

“I gotta do the face right,” began Zayn Malik’s girlfriend.  “I love my husband, President Barack Obama and our children, Sasha and Malia.”

Members of Gigi’s star-studded audience laughed quietly at her joke, but those watching the event at home were less than amused.

Many took to Twitter to voice their grievances, with some going as far as to suggest that the impression was “racist”.

“Its racist when Trump says illegals should leave, but not when Gigi Hadid makes fun of Melania Trump’s European accent? #DOUBLESTANDARD (sic),” wrote one person.

“Idiot.  If someone did that to Moochelle they’d be called a racist.  Sorry you’re not as pretty as Melania, Gigi,” said another.

Others criticised the Californian for lacking class in choosing to portray Trump’s third wife.

“A model making fun of a model.  Not classy @GiGiHadid, not classy.  Just silly #AMAs #disappointed,” read one Tweet.

While another group focused on comparing Gigi with Melania through tweets like: “Dear @GiGiHadid, @MELANIATRUMP is 100 percent more beautiful and smart than you will ever be.  How dare you, boycott the #AMAs.”


Since the controversy surrounding Gigi's performance is still gaining pace, we think it'll be a while before this blows over.


While much of the hype surrounding last night’s American Music Awards focused on celebrity outfit choices and Melania Trump impressions, Selena Gomez was responsible for injecting a much needed dose of authenticity into the event.

Having cancelled the remainder of her Revival World Tour in August to focus on her health, the Good For You singer gave an emotive speech while accepting the award for ‘Best Female Artist’.

“In 2014, this stage was actually the first time that I was authentically, 100 percent honest with all of you.  I think it’s safe to say that most of you know a lot of my life whether I liked it or not,” the 24-year-old began.

“I had to stop because I had everything and I was absolutely broken inside,” she continued.  “I kept it all together enough to where I would never let you down but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down.”

“I don’t want to see your bodies on Instagram.  I want to see what’s in here [points to chest].  I’m not trying to get validation nor do I need it anymore.”

“All I can say from the bottom of my heart is I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to be able to share what I love every single day with people that I love.”

Finishing in the same determined manner with which she had begun, the former Disney star said: “I have to say thank you so much to my fans because you guys are so damn loyal and I don’t know what I did to deserve you.”

“If you are broken, you do not have to stay broken.  If that’s anything whether you respect me or not that’s one thing you should know about me.  I care about people.  Thank you so much for this.  This is for you.”

Selena’s impassioned words clearly had a moving effect on her star-studded audience, with a camera pan showing Lady Gaga in an almost tearful state.

She has been widely praised online for her honesty.



From the performances to the outfits to the red carpet moments, there was a lot to discuss after last night's American Music Awards.

One red carpet interaction in particular had us squirming and it involved a pretty awkward encounter between super model Gigi Hadid and One Direction’s Harry Styles.

Let’s just say Gigi made it pretty clear how she feels about 1D’s shaggy haired lothario.

As the super group were finishing up an interview for E! News, host Giuliana Rancic invited Gigi up to join proceedings.

“Do you guys know Gigi Hadid? Do you wanna welcome her up? Come on Gigi,” said Giuliana – obviously clueless to the awkward moment about to happen – as the Victoria's Secret model made a very unenthused entrance.

Walking on stage, Gigi proceeded to shake Harry's hand, before going on to warmly hug Niall, Louis and Liam. 

Considering Harry’s track record for dating her friends (he has been linked to both Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner), it would seem that the 20-year-old is not his biggest fan.

Aside from Harry and Gigi, it was an evening of awkward encounters, with Nicki Minaj and J-Lo sharing their own cringe-inducing moment. 

After opening the show, J-Lo performed a medley of some of the biggest hits of the year including Nicki's number one single Anaconda

During the song, the camera panned to Nicki to catch her reaction.

Let’s just say she looks less than impressed.  

One thing is for sure, those celebs never fail to entertain. 



Have you ever wanted to know what Channing Tatum calls his penis or what his superpower would be? Well… you are SERIOUSLY in luck.

The Magic Mike XXL star was a lot more candid than anyone expected when he answered fan's questions in his Reddit AMA.

The 35-year-old admits that that in a zombie apocalypse he would run to Sandra Bullock’s house because she is “dope and kick-ass.” Channing also seems to be harbouring some strange sexual tendencies towards a certain Mr Danny Devito, with references to the actor in just a few too many of his answers! 

Here are some of the best questions and definitely the best answers that Channing gave.

What would be Channing Tatum’s superpower? He wants to see you naked.

We expected him to say flying… this was WAY better.

“I wish that I could make anyone at any point just happen to be naked. Not for the reasons that everyone thinks. Because people get really nice when they get naked. Like okay, I can’t be an asshole. People aren’t assholes when they get naked (for the most part). They are thinking about what they look like. Sh***y answer, I tried to do something funny and it didn’t work.”

When asked if his penis has a nickname…


We’re not entirely sure that we want to hear an explanation to that one!

When he can only bring three things to a deserted island? Sounds like a fun abandoned island to us. 

"How about a magical seashell that’s always filled with bourbon. And I would like a magical palm tree that had a lot of shade with instead of coconuts there’s just peanut butter jelly sandwiches with Cheetos underneath. And my wife that is always happy and possibly naked."

The question we all want to know… does Channing go full frontal in Magic Mike XXL?

“I do not do full frontal but I can promise you when you’re standing in front of a bunch of people in a very small thong it doesn’t leave a lot to the imagination.”

Kill one, marry one, f**k one… Ray Romano, Danny Devito, and Gilbert Gottfried?

“I’d f**k Danny Devito, as I was saying earlier it could be fun. I’d marry Ray Romano, because I think he has a pretty solid perspective on marriage. I don’t know who would be the male or female, you figure it out. And I like Gilbert Gottfried but I wouldn’t mind killing him.”

And thankfully, one brave fan asked what we’ve all been wondering. Jupiter Ascending? What was that?

“Great question. I have the same one to myself.” 



Jessie J made her first red carpet appearance with her new man last night and it was all kinds of cute!

The singer has been very vocal on social media about her love for Luke James, often posting photos.

However, last night’s American Music Awards saw the pair walk the red carpet as a couple for the first time, with Jessie wearing a gorgeous cream-coloured pants suit.

If things couldn’t get any sweeter than that, she later cuddled up to him as she performed and it was super cute!

Aww, we love these two together!



Uh oh, it looks like sisterly love may not be on the cards for Khloé and her little sister Kylie at the moment!

The two were seen getting into a heated argument on the red carpet at last night's AMA's, with Khloé admitting there was an issue on Instagram, writing: “Do we have to argue on the carpet?!?!”


Do we have to argue on the carpet?!?!

Khloé seemed to be pretty upset about something as she is seen gesturing at Kylie, who is taking the “are you really doing this here” approach that those with sisters will know only too well.

Thankfully the two patched things up and went on to pose up a storm as well as enjoy the show at the AMA’s. 


You will never understand this kind of love!

Selena Gomez put on a very emotional display at last night’s AMA Awards.

The singer was performing her new single, The Heart Wants What It Wants as she struggled to hold in tears, becoming very emotional by the time the song ended. 

However, she wasn’t the only one who became overwhelmed by the performance, as her best friend Taylor Swift was clearly moved too. When the camera rested on her at the end of the song, Taylor could be seen to be choked up but looking very proud of her BFF.

The song is known to be about her on-off love affair with Justin Bieber, who it seems she has finally let go off (for now!).
