A sneak peak at Cats, the film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber and TS Elliot's infamous musical, has dropped and the reactions have been less than positive.

The clip offers us the first footage of the all-star casts in all their feline glory, created using motion capture techniques which director Tom Hooper (The King's Speech) refers to as 'digital fur technology'.

The incredible cast includes Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson, Jason Derulo, Judi Dench, Taylor Swift, James Corden, Ian McEllen, Rebel Wilson and Idris Elba, who all belt our the film's anthems.

Unfortunately, the first furry glimpses of the upcoming live-action remake have left some viewers unhappy after the feline creatures were described online as 'cursed' and nightmarish.

The transmogrified CGI human-cat hybrids were unveiled last night, with the Universal Pictures film landing in cinemas on December 20 of this year.

Hamilton Tony winner Andy Blankenbuehler choreographs the movie, having worked on the 2016 Broadway revival. Lloyd Webber has also apparently written a new song for the film.

Many viewers found the mutated dancing cats to be troubling to watch. The story revolves around a tribe of cats called the Jellicles, which faces a series of challenging life-altering choices one fateful night.

Fans didn't appreciate beloved actors in CGI feline form, especially the revered cinema veteran Judi Dench:

Many Twitter users wondered why the stars didn't just wear catsuits, like in the stage show. The word 'abomination' was even used…

"A demented dream ballet" is possibly one of the greatest phrases we've heard yet: 

Important questions were raised: 

Conspiracy theories were introduced:

The working world ceased to exist for a moment from the distraction:

Some even wondered if the trailer was so horrifying, it could bestow a curse on all who watched it:

The only positive taken from the whole thing is that Grumpy Cat died just in time to never have to witness the terror:

We're not even sure if we'd make it through the cinematic experience of the movie, would you be willing to see the flick this December?

If it's in 3D, God help our souls. Fur-get it as soon as your eyes witness Taylor Swift as a cat wearing kitten heels.

We really needed news like this in our lives right now, with all the negative news swirling around our auras, sucking the healthy energy from us.

All we want is a cleanse, and Taylor has delivered once again.

Not alone has she given fans her Reputation tour documentary on Netflix (breathtaking, BTW), she has now confirmed her role in the brand new Cats movie. MEOW GAL.

The singer posed next to a sign plastered with her character’s name, Bombalurina, and captioned it with a simple 'Meow'. Needless to say, the post garnered over one million likes in a matter of hours.

We. Are. Purring.

The Delicate singer will be starring alongside James Corden, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen and Rebel Wilson in the upcoming movie, developed by Working Title.

Her co-star Idris Elba, who is clearly Team Tay-Tay, is already singing her praises.

The duo took to the Golden Globes stage together to present a few weks ago, with the Luther star saying she "has got chops" and "holds her own". Damn right she does.

Elba spoke about working with the multi-talented artist;

"Taylor and I have known each other for a couple of years and we’re cool you know. She’s a good girl; she’s a great artist and she’s got a really great heart," he said.

"I’m so excited to work with her in this film, she’s going to be amazing." Obvi?

Taylor has been candidly dating actor Joe Alwyn for the last two years, maybe she'll get some acting tips off her beau?


Sometimes we just need that extra push to get ourselves off the couch and into the gym. Winter weather does not exactly make for the most appealing of conditions so it can be easy to avoid the sweaty business of jogging around the park in gale force winds.  

However, the thoughts of showing off a brand new set of gym gear makes it seem far more appealing. Active wear is pretty much fashion gold these days and sure look there's no point in doing all those squats if you're not going to show them off. 

Who better to look to for some gym inspiration then some serious fit celebs. They pull off the sweaty top knot and tank top combo and make it look effortless. 

1. Lena Dunham 

Co-ordinated gym gear FTW. 

2. Alessandra Ambrosio 

Basically all of the VS angels look amazing every time they hit the gym, which is often.

3. Gigi Hadid 

We're still obsessed with these leggings, tbh.

4. Jennifer Hudson 

Practical and chic, nailed it. 

5. Hailey Baldwin 

Ok, so the sports bra only look might get a bit chilly but if you have the abs why not show them off?

6. Shay Mitchell 

7. Kate Hudson 

She has her own range of athletic gear, Fabletics, so that explains how she never has to resort to that dodgy old t-shirt and possibly ripped leggings look.

8. Khloé Kardashian 

Let us take a moment to appreciate her workout wardrobe. Expertly organised, of course: 




Two grooms were tieing the knot in Texas, when singer Jennifer Hudson surprised them by joining the party. 

This was one of Dallas' first same-sex marriages and Jennifer wanted to make sure it was a day to remember. 

During the wedding ceremony, as the grooms exchanged their vows, they were treated to a congratulations video by Jennifer herself, but the real surprise was yet to come. 


Congrats to Chris and Scott ! They said girl where the hell u come from!

Jennifer finished the video saying 'but ya'll hold on, cause I got one more thing.." and when the video finished, the curtain dropped and the songstress herself appeared to sing I still love you from her latest album JHUD.

The grooms and all of the guests at the wedding joined in singing and dancing along to the song as Jhud sang with two backing dancers to the newlyweds. 

The couple have been together for 14 years and have four children, but it is only in the past few weeks that they have gained the right to marry each other. 

'I owe a large part of my success to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, who has embraced and supported me from early on in my career,' Jennifer said.




Major news for Sex and the City fans this morning, as it has been revealed that a third movie may be in the pipeline!


Rumours are rife today that Carrie and co. will be returning to the big screen very soon, after Jennifer Hudson dropped a major clue that a third film is on the books.

When the possibility of Hudson reprising her role as PA Louise was raised during an interview with MTV, she said: “Somebody just came to me talking about that. So if it’s in the talks, it might happen. So look for it.”

We most certainly will, Jennifer!

While we have yet to get any more information on the possible production, Sarah Jessica Parker previously said that she would not rule out starring in another movie, saying: “A part of me thinks there is one last chapter to tell.”

We think this calls for a Sex and the City marathon this weekend. Who’s with us?



Jennifer Hudson’s half-brother, Steven Simpson, has been arrested after a frenzied attack on his estranged wife’s lover.

The singer’s brother reportedly stabbed the man in the face several times and is now being held in Michigan for attempted murder.

Unfortunately for Jennifer, this is not the first violent incident to impact her family. Back in 2008, her mother and brother were found dead with her nephew also being reported missing only to be found deceased three days later.

They were murdered by Jennifer’s sister Julia’s estranged husband, William Balfour who is currently serving three counts of first-degree murder for the tragic crimes.

The deaths deeply affected the singer and she has set up a fund for families of similar crimes known as The Hudson-King Foundation for Families of Slain Victims.

Jennifer’s third album, JHUD, is due for release next month, although it is unknown how recent events will impact this.



Selena Gomez has teamed up with Orlando Bloom, Seth Rogen, and Jennifer Hudson to support the #WeAreSilent, social media campaign.

The 21-year-old singer has given her full support to the #wearesilent campaign, which is hoping to raise awareness for Free The Children and The Malala Fund.

The social media campaign hopes to encourage young people to stand up for those who are voiceless. On April 17th,  Selena along with others will posting pictures of themselves with their fingers over their lips, in a ‘shushing’ motion.

It’s great to see such big names, getting behind such a great campaign.



It doesn’t matter how famous you are, PDAs from your parents will always make you feel awkward.

Celebs were out in full force for last night’s pre-Grammy Clive Davis party and we’ve waded through the endless number of photos to bring you the most noteworthy frocks of the night.

On our Best Dressed list is Taylor Swift, with that gorgeous black Zuhair Murad mini dress – only Swifty could wear something that fitted and short and still manage to look elegant.


Miley Cyrus shocked us once again, but this time it was for all the right reasons. Never one to follow the same trend everyone else is (last night, it was all about plunging necklines and cleavage, by the way), Miley opted for a lingerie-inspired white Calvin Klein slip, paired with a furry lilac coat. It’s not exactly something we’d wear to pick up our groceries, but we really liked it.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, we have Jennifer Hudson who dressed in the dark and opted for an incredibly unflattering mini dress and Rihanna who wore that yellow thing.

Oh well, ladies; can’t win them all!



Walking into a party with the same outfit as someone else can be a daunting, but what about having everyone online comparing you to another celeb pal who happened to wear the same frock?

Even though they all look SHEmazing, let’s have a nosy at which celebrities had to deal with that dreaded feeling- it happens to the best of us.

Mariah or Jennifer Aniston?


Rosie Huntington or Jennifer Hudson?


Charlize Theron or Kim K?


Victoria Secret’s Angel Miranda Kerr or Halle Berry?


And to spice things up…

Nicole Scherzinger, Nayra Rivera or Alesha Dixon?






Who rocked the red carpet at last night’s People Choice Awards?

Well, we’ve picked our favourites!

First up, TV’s current sweetheart, Kaley Cuoco looked so feminine and demure in this gorgeous fairy-esque pink dress.

Justin Timberlake kept it simple in Tom Ford on the red carpet last night, but we like it; classy and sexy.

The absolutely stunning Kat Denning chose a floor length number by David Meister with great rose detailing.

Jennifer Hudson looked ethereal in a fitting white dress by Kaufmanfranco that showcased the figure she has worked hard for over the last two years. Her pink lipstick set the look off perfectly.
