A significant number of the population at once stage in their lives had Justin Bieber as their phone lock screen.

Don't deny it, our hunky, beautiful crushes were featured as our wallpapers for longer than we care to admit.

It looks like supermodel Hailey Baldwin is still in that stage of her existence, but at least hers is relevant to her current romance. The gal has got a school-aged Justin Bieber has her lock-screen, and we're GASPING.

Eagled-eyed fans spotted the phone screen after a paparazzi snapped Hailey walking around New York City last Sunday.

It's a hilarious photo of the pop star, we must say. We wonder what photo he has on his own lock-screen? It could even be the same one as Hailey's, for all we know..

Her hubby Justin is allegedly seeking treatment for depression, People reported. The 23-year-old singer is apparently exhausted and is seeking help, leaning on Hailey for support.

The religious wedding service where the pair would invite a wider circle of friends is rumoured to be postponed yet again

The ecclesiastical wedding can't take place as "…right now, Justin’s focus is getting well mentally," an insider explained to People.

"Hailey is very supportive- Justin is very open about that Hailey does nothing but help him. He would feel even more lost without Hailey – he is very grateful. They are both focused on having a happy marriage," said the source.

We hope the Biebs is getting the help he needs, but we have to applaud Hailey's lock-screen. It's nostalgia goals, and we might just have to go back and listen to Baby another thousand times.

Literally everyone in the audience of Valentino's revolutionary Paris Fashion Week haute couture show bawled like a baby.

For one, the iconic supermodel who has been slaying the game for three decades returned to the iconic house of fashion after FOURTEEN YEARS to close the show- Her Royal Highness Naomi Campbell.

Celine Dion is moved to tears by haute couture relatively often, she's an appreciator of art. However, this show moved both Dion and Campbell to tears for it's celebration of black beauty.

Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli designed the stunning collection, which saw each model inspired by a beautiful flower, and featured bold and bright colours, diversity and petal eyelashes.

Celine Dion is an ebullient presence at every fashion week she attends, giving thumbs up to paparazzi when she's impressed and occasionally jumping for joy.

She couldn't help the tears from falling watching Piccioli's work, modelled by women of every ethnicity, but when Naomi walked down the catwalk in a sheer black dress, Dion WEPT.

It was one of couture's most diverse line-ups ever, with 39 black women walking. Picciolo said of his collection;

“Couture is the way that you can evaluate the uniqueness of life, but it was never meant to be for black women. It was meant for just white women. This is a celebration of black beauty.” 

Campbell wept silently as Picciolo was given a standing ovation at the finale, she has witnessed the inherent racism in the industry since she began.

The iconic supermodel broke down barriers, and was one of the first black women on the covers of high fashion magazines and on their runways.

The billowing gowns were modelled by Alek Wek, Liya Kebede, Adut Akech, Duckie Thot, Akiima, Sabah Koj and Ayak Veronica, among other powerful, high fashion faces.

The soundtrack was soul icon Roberta Flack’s The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face, which matched the emotional ambience perfectly.

The subversion of the racial norm was clearly hugely important to Naomi Campbell, who praised the designer on her Instagram;

“Congratulations on a historical moment, done in such an elegant manner no words needed to be said. Blessed to be part of such an incredible, spellbinding moment.”

Paris fashion week has one of the worst records when it comes to casting diverse models.

Data gathered by The Fashion Spot revealed that just 15.6 percent of models in the Spring 2015 shows were women of colour, making Paris the least inclusive of any fashion week.

It's easy to see why both Celine and Naomi were overcome with emotion, given the immense occasion.

Paris Jackson, daughter of the late King of Pop Michael Jackson, is seeking treatment for issues relating to her emotional and mental health.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Paris is currently living in a mental health facility following a whirlwind year of work engagements, new music releases, photoshoots and public appearances.

A source spoke to ET, saying; "After a busy year of work engagements that took her all over the globe, Paris decided that she needed to take some time off to reboot, realign and prioritize her physical and emotional health."

"She checked herself into a treatment facility to aid in her wellness plan and is looking forward to coming out of this revitalized and ready to tackle the exciting new projects that await her," the insider added.

The young model suddenly ceased sharing any images on social media from the middle of December, and failed to join her family on holiday in Toyka over Christmas.

This is an unusual move for the star, who is very close with her younger brothers especially. Her followers then began to speculate that her mental health may have been suffering.

The 20-year old has had a manic year career-wise, and had to face the heartbreaking death of her grandfather Joe Jackson.

She has been hugely sought after in the fashion world, and since her Hollywood debut, it's apparent that the youngster is a new 'It Girl' on the scene.

Paris last hit the headlines in September 2018 for calling out paparazzi who were verbally attacking her as she left a New York Fashion Week event.

She has regularly discussed her struggles with self-confidence and depression, which drove her to attempt to commit suicide for the first time when she was only 13-years-old.

She later attempted to take her own life again aged 15 multiple times, leading her to enter a therapeutic school;

"I was going through a lot of, like, teen angst. And I was also dealing with my depression and my anxiety without any help," she told Rolling Stone in 2017. 

Hopefully she's getting the help she needs.


Diane Kruger has made an emotional plea for her newborn daughter's privacy after unauthorised images of the little girl were leaked.

She revealed her pregnancy in May and her little bundle of joy was born in November. Kruger told Extra“She’s very little, but I’m tired. I feel like a superhero right now.”

The 42-year-old actress only recently welcomed her first baby with boyfriend Norman Reedus, and explained via her Instagram account that the photos were not permitted to be captured.

She captioned the photo of an image featuring her baby's face blurred out;

“Dear fans, dear non fans, dear paparazzi and anyone with a conscience. We were just tagged in these paparazzi pictures of me and our daughter. These pictures were taken without our consent and expose a vulnerable and innocent baby,”

“While we understand that some people would like to see a picture of our daughter, we as parents, want nothing more than allow her to grow up in privacy and safety," she added.

Tagging her boyfriend Reedus, she concluded; “Me and @bigbaldhead would kindly ask you not to repost these pictures and help us achieve that goal."

The baby's name and birth date are unknown to the public.

The happy couple met while they were filming Sky in 2015, and went public with their romance in March of 2017.

Reedus has a 19-year-old child with ex-wife Helena Christensen.

We hope the new parents get the privacy they deserve. 



Louis Tomlinson is set to find out today if he will face charges over an alleged altercation he had with a paparazzi almost one month ago.

The case is expected to be heard at an LA courthouse today.

A spokesman for the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office said: “The matter is still under review by our office."

"If no decision is made by (Wednesday), a new court date will be scheduled.”

The 25-year-old singer felt that a member of the paparazzi was getting too close to Louis and his girlfriend Eleanor Calder.

The pair were travelling through LAX Airport in Los Angeles. 

"The paparazzi provoked and caused the altercation that occurred with Louis," a member of his team told TMZ.


A post shared by Louis Tomlinson (@louist91) on

"It's not the first time that a paparazzi has created an altercation with a celebrity."

"While the altercation was going on with the paparazzi, three other individuals were attacking his girlfriend during this incident and he came to her defense."


A post shared by Louis Tomlinson (@louist91) on

The altercation has been classed as a misdemeanour and Louis did not have to pay a bail out charge after pledging to attend all court proceedings.

 The paparazzi member was also arrested after the "scuffle." 

Oh, and while we have you; don't forget to have your say in the inaugural SHEmazing Awards this May! It's time to vote, and you can do it right here!



Chrissy Tiegen took to Twitter last night to draw attention to the lengths paparazzi will go to in order to get a 'good' photograph of a celebrity in public.

In a series of angry tweets, the Lip Sync Battle presenter explained that she and her husband, John Legend, had been making their way through JFK airport when they were confronted by a pap who attempted to provoke a reaction from them.

Explaining that the pap had made a racist remark towards the All Of Me singer, Chrissy wrote: "Paparazzi at JFK just asked me "if we evolved from monkeys, why is John Legend still around?" – and people wonder why celebs lose it in pics."

"I was very kind. Answered cooking questions, then he came with that. Fu*king disgusting. Also, John is right next to me. The balls." she added.

And according to the mum-of-one, that particular photographer didn't leave it there.

"He also went from "what's an easy recipe to make at home" to "if a Jew were a vampire, would he still be afraid of crosses?" Chrissy told her followers who number in their millions.

Explaining to fans that she refused to respond in anger, Chrissy wrote: "They live for that photo and lawsuit."

Responding to Chrissy's series of post last night, her fans attempted to placate her, with one writing: "Oh my god. well let me add to the much needed positivity and say that you and your family are amazing people."




Apparently, Kanye West is a man of his word.

Now, don't get us wrong, we love how much drama he creates (it's like watching a TV show), but sometimes when he goes on a rant you don't know whether to believe him or just take what he says with a pinch of salt.

But we might have to eat our words now because back in November, he promised some paparazzi that he would give out free Yeezys – something nobody thought he'd ever do.

Yet, this week he rolled up in his car and gave a bunch out to a few freelance cameramen on the street.

At around €300 a pop, we have to say, it's a pretty nice gesture!


Being a successful TV presenter obviously has its perks – you get to meet incredible people, travel to exclusive locations and wear the nicest gear.  But as Laura Whitmore just pointed out, fame also has some major disadvantages.

It’s only been a day since the Bray native announced that she will be taking part in the upcoming series of Strictly Come Dancing and already the paparazzi are creeping on her gaff.

And while many people would board up their windows in a bid to protect their privacy, Laura has decided to call out the “creepy photographer” in question for his actions.



In her latest tweet the 31-year-old star shared a picture of the photographer who is trying to snap a photo of her from a Mini parked outside her house.

In the accompanying message the London-based presenter said: “Creepy photographer outside my house…I see you.  Thanks for making me feel intimidated in my own home.”

Laura’s followers have been quick to support her statement as one tweeted “Disgusting!  Your home is where you are supposed to feel safe,” while another adopted a more light-hearted approach by writing: “@thewhitmore do a few dance steps for him.”






The celebs aren't having the best of weeks… especially in the lead up to Christmas.

Chris Martin arrived back in LA, after doing a number of appearances in Europe, to find out that he is being sued by a photographer who is claiming the singer ran him down with his Jeep. 

According to TMZ, photographer Richard Terry is stating that Chris intentionally hit him with his car while leaving a restaurant about a year ago. 

The incident was apparently caught on camera by another photographer who was standing across the street at the time.

Richard said that he was outside an Italian restaurant in Santa Monica when he saw Mr Martin and ew-wife Gwyneth Palthrow leaving and getting into a Jeep.

He then states that the Coldplay frontman deliberately turned his car's wheel abruptly to the right, hitting Mr Terry on the path.

In his lawsuit, the pap claims that Chris has "a significant history of repeated and ongoing violent acts against entertainment news people."

He also says that he was upset the rocker didn't stop to see if he was OK. 


Earlier this week, Cara Delevingne had quite a humiliating run-in with the paparazzi, which she didn't hold back on.

The model-turned-actress described her disgust on Twitter at the papz for trying to take a picture up her skirt and then continued on to ask fans how she could get revenge.

Well, something the photographers didn't expect AT ALL happened: She drenched them with water guns.

Cara and her girlfriend St Vincent stepped out with huge water guns and they soaked anyone with a camera in sight.

Hey, at least she didn't go for the eggs. 


The internet is evidently a constant source of celebrity: bolstered by the likes of Instagram and Snapchat, we all now have a wealth of famous faces at our finger-tips.

But access to big names is a notoriously mixed bag.

Who would have thought, for example, that Rihanna and Beyonce are so happy to be photographed, while Blake Lively is somewhat more aloof?

That's not all that Big Apple-based paparazzo Miles Diggs, who runs 247Paps.TV with his business partner, Cesar Peña, revealed in conversation with the New York Post.

In fact, he laid bare the celebs that he and his ilk love to snap… and the ones they definitely don't…


The stars paps love:

1) Taylor Swift: “The smartest businesswoman in the business.” Her bodyguards arrange all the paps in a line outside her front door so everyone gets a clear shot when she enters and exits in immaculate outfits. “If you don’t get eye contact, your camera wasn’t working.”

2) Kim Kardashian: “She’s top of the food chain,” with even nonexclusive shots of Mrs West worth $300 to $1,000. Plus, she gets a majority cut of exclusive photos she sets up with photo agencies. “She’s trying to coach [half-sister] Kylie to give up photos more because the family needs somebody out there while she’s on maternity leave.”

3) Nicki Minaj: “When she’s feeling herself, she’s going to walk out and walk real slow, almost do a pose like a red carpet on the middle of the sidewalk.” Shots of Minaj wearing colored wigs and cartoon-style outfits are easier to sell.

4) Rihanna: A favorite. Friendly, always impeccably dressed and down to earth. She hangs out at restaurants and bars without security, and often into the wee hours. “She’s an eight-hour wait waiting to happen.”

5) Beyoncé: “She’s great if she wants to be shot and bad if she doesn’t.” Her bodyguard is known for having the longest arms around, perfect for blocking a shot Bey doesn’t want.


…And those they don’t:

1) Leonardo DiCaprio: “He hates being a celebrity.” He hides his face behind umbrellas or under beanies, berets, beards and sunglasses.

2) Scarlett Johansson: “She’s like a female Leo . . . She’s one of the best at spotting paparazzi. Her hand goes up, and she puts scarves in front of her.”

3) Alec Baldwin: The notoriously prickly actor has attacked and insulted paparazzi before, but Diggs and Peña say it always seems linked to an upcoming film, play or wedding. “Everything is timely with him. He’s a very calculating guy.”

4) Kristen Stewart: Used to bolt when cameras were near. “I’ve never seen a human being run as fast as Kristen Stewart.” But she wasn’t fast enough to escape the shot of her making out with married director Rupert Sanders, which ruined her relationship with Robert Pattinson (not to mention his marriage to Liberty Ross). She now has a publicist and is more willing to be photographed.

5) Blake Lively: “She pretends to be a sweetheart,” but Mrs Ryan Reynolds is notoriously hard to find, and if she knows a pap has snapped her, she’ll arrange her own photos and release them for free.



Not too long ago model and actress Cara Delevingne took to social media and blasted the paparazzi in Milan.

The 23-year old was in the city with fellow model Kate Moss to present their campaign for Mango. While there, the star seemed to have a bit of trouble when some of the photographers were acting very rude.

She went on to say that she would refuse to let grown men treat her “like objects with no feelings and get away with it.” She also apologised to her followers for her rant but explained it was necessary- she feared otherwise "these situations would probably end in violence."

Now, it seems Mullingar-native Niall is less than impressed with how he’s being treated by the photographers too.

The 1D star let loose on Twitter this morning after paparazzi told their fans to move out of the way so they could get a photo.


Just last night Niall had tweeted in praise of their fans after their gig at the 02 Arena in London. The pop star certainly did not hold back as he gave the paps a warning. 

Niall’s fans immediately took to Twitter to praise him for taking a stand.

They were very impressed.
