Kelly Osbourne loses car

Kelly Osbourne lost her car in Australia on Tuesday (11.24.15).

The 30-year-old star is Down Under appearing as a judge on 'Australia's Got Talent' and she got in a panic on her way to record the program when she realized she couldn't remember where she had parked her motor.

Realizing she was going to be late for filming, quick-thinking Kelly jumped in a rickshaw to get to the studio as quick as she could.

In an Instagram post - accompanied by a photo of her laughing in the back of the bike taxi - she revealed: "Look how I showed up to work today because I could not find my car! The fresh air was amazing @gottalentau (sic)"

Kelly got to the 'Australia's Got Talent' studio in time to cast her eye over the auditions and managed to relax before taking her seat on the panel by practicing her best "duck face" with fellow judge Sophie Monk.

In other Instagram posts, she wrote: "Backstage practicing my duck face with @sophiemonk @gottalentau ... What do you guys think of today's look? (sic)"

Kelly and Sophie are joined on the 'Australia's Got Talent' judging panel by Ian 'Dicko' Dickson and Eddie Perfect.


Figure painting workshop

This December, the Arts Council of the Central Okanagan (ARTSCO)  is presenting an outstanding painting workshop to the Central Okanagan community. Taught by world-renowned painter, Kristy Gordon, students will learn classical techniques for figure painting.  

“It is certainly very exciting to have someone of Kristy Gordon’s caliber coming to Kelowna,” Katie Brennan, Executive Director of ARTSCO explains. 

Gordon has ties to the community and grew up in Nelson, BC. She currently makes her home in New York City. Gordon has nine years of experience teaching and conducting painting workshops, lectures and classes throughout North America. Her own paintings are a frank and intimate reflection of her curiosity about other people, transformations and self-discovery.

With a focus on painting the nude figure using a limited colour pallet, students will develop the ability to perceive tonal values and control temperature variations while maintaining colour harmony. 

This workshop will be held in the Ellis Art Studios located at 1021 Ellis St, a great space with big windows and impeccable lighting perfect for painting. Participants will learn how to achieve a better likeness as well as how to paint convincing flesh tones. Each day will include a painting demonstration, discussion and individual instruction at the easel.

This workshop will run over 3 days from December 17th to 19th from 10 - 4pm each day. This workshop is available for students of all abilities.

Brad Pitt's youthful secret

Brad Pitt credits "a lot of love" for his youthful looks.

The 51-year-old actor - who has children Maddox, 14, Pax, 11, Zahara, nine, and twins Knox and Vivienne, seven, with wife Angelina Jolie - also believes in never overindulging in his favourite things.

Asked his secret to looking and feeling young, he told 'Extra': "Everything in moderation and a lot of love."

The 'Moneyball' actor is looking forward to celebrating Thanksgiving with his family and plans to cook up a feast in the kitchen.

He said: "Yeah, I'll get in there, I'll mess it up a little bit. We got Thanksgiving, man -- I'm all over that turkey."

Brad can next be seen in 'The Big Short' - which he also produced - and felt it was "important" to make the movie, which is about the build-up of the housing and credit bubble, which led to America's recent financial crisis.

He said: "I wanted to play a small part in it to help get it to the screen, so I jumped in on the acting side as well.

"It was a really important story to me, I'm still angry by it, that no one was held accountable, this financial crisis, this housing meltdown that so many people got hurt by."

And he particularly enjoyed shooting the movie in one of his favourite places.

He said: "I like any excuse to get back to New Orleans."


NSYNC congratulate Adele

*NSYNC have congratulated Adele on breaking their album sales record.

The group set a record in 2000 when their LP 'No Strings Attached' sold 2.416 million copies in just seven days, but three days after the British singer released new album '25' on Friday (11.20.15), it had already clocked over 2.433 million sales in downloads and physical copies in the US.

And the 'Bye Bye Bye' hitmakers have now praised the 'Hello' singer for her achievement.

J.C. Chasez simply posted on Twitter: "Well done Adele."

His former bandmate Lance Bass proved more inventive with his message.

He wrote: "We officially say Bye Bye Bye as @Adele says Hello to the World Record of Most Albums Sold In a Single Week. Congratulations!! #IDemandARecount #NSYNC #Adele (sic)"

Chris Kirkpatrick retweeted a post about the record being broken, but didn't add any remarks of his own.

While Justin Timberlake has yet to comment, Joey Fatone is pleased it is Adele who has broken their record.

He told Billboard magazine: "In all honesty, Adele is the truth -- kinda excited a rare talent like hers is in the same breath as our group. I'm a huge fan. I even bought the damn album."

However, Joey admits he was amazed anyone had managed to smash their first-week sales.

He said: "Records are always meant to be broken, but with technology and current music business model, I thought this one would be tough to beat."

Adele breaks sales record

Adele's '25' has taken just three days to smash the record for the most album sales in America in a week.

The 27-year-old singer's third studio album became the fastest-selling record Stateside in its first week of sales, registering figures of 2.433 million downloads and physical copies purchased by Monday (23.11.15), smashing the record set by *NSYNC in 2000, when they sold 2.416 million discs of 'No Strings Attached' in seven days.

The record is now expected to have sold over 3 million copies by the end of its first week on sale.

What's more, the album is on course to be the fastest-selling of all time in the UK.

That record is currently held by Oasis, whose album 'Be Here Now' sold 696,000 copies in its first week in 1997, whilst Official Charts Company statistics show '25' has shifted just over 500,000 within its first three days.

Adele's return to music comes after a four-year hiatus and the first single from the album 'Hello' was knocked off the top spot in the UK but is still number one in the US.

The star hasn't made the album, released through XL/Columbia Records, available on music streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music, however her previous albums '19' and '21', as well as 'Hello', are available for streaming.


Bieber cancels appearances

Justin Bieber has apologised to fans after cancelling a string of planned appearances.

The 'Sorry' hitmaker cancelled a series of performances - including an appearance on 'The Late Show With Stephen Colbert' - without offering a proper explanation and has now taken to his Twitter account to say sorry to those people who were hoping to see him.

Justin said: "My apologies to @colbertlateshow as I won't be able to make it to nyc tomorrow for the show. I look forward to making it up to you soon. (sic)"

Later, he thanked his fans for their understanding, though he again declined the chance to explain the problem.

He wrote: "@StephenAtHome thank you for the understanding as sometimes life kicks our ass and we need to deal with it. I will see u soon. Thank you (sic)"

Gossip website TMZ said Justin has been on an emotional roller-coaster in recent weeks and simply could not continue with his hectic schedule.

The announcement comes shortly after it was reported Justin serenaded his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez in a hotel bar.

The on/off couple were seen at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills, where Justin sang a number of songs, including 'My Girl' and his own tune 'Sorry'.

And Justin recently admitted he will always love the singer.

He said: "[She] is someone I love dearly. I'm never going to stop loving her. I'm never going to stop checking in on her.

"I don't think if you end a relationship, you should end that, unless it was super toxic and you guys were hurting each other physically or mentally. We always respected each other and we still respect each other."

Jessie battles online bullies

Jessie J has hit out at online bullies.

The 'Bang bang' hitmaker has taken to her Instagram account to condemn the behaviour of some of her fans, and has revealed she's taken to unfollowing them because of their actions.

In a lengthy message, she wrote: "I don't usually comment on this topic, but I know some of my fans will notice so I want to explain.

"I have just unfollowed all of the 7/8 fan pages I was following on Instagram. Not because I don't want to, I love seeing what you find and post. But because I have been seeing some real nasty behaviour when I show some of the fans I follow love or repost them."

Jessie explained her decision stemmed from the fact she "despises any type of bullying".

The 27-year-old star continued: "So I have decided to not follow any fans.

"I appreciate all my fans/heartbeats equally. But I won't tolerate bullying. Ever. So this isn't me throwing shade or forgetting you all or 'changing'.

"I am simply someone who wants to live in a supportive peaceful and kind world. So anything that hinders that, if I can do something to remove it I will."

Chris Rock's divorce fallout

Chris Rock has reportedly not seen the seven-year-old girl who lived with his family since infancy in a year.

The American comedian filed for divorce from his wife Malaak late last year and according to TMZ, he has not subsequently seen Ntombi, the South African girl who has been living with the Rock family since 2008.

The 50-year-old star - who has two biological daughters, 12-year-old Lola and 10-year-old Zahra, with his estranged wife - previously admitted being a father was a responsibility he relished.

He said: "When I hear people talk about juggling, or the sacrifices they make for their children, I look at them like they're crazy.

"Because 'sacrifice' infers that there was something better to do than being with your children. And I've never been with my kids and gone, 'Man, I wish I was on my stage right now.'"

Chris confessed he often wishes he could spend more time with his children.

He said: "I've never been with my kids and gone, 'Man, it'd be so great if I was on a movie set right now.' But I've been doing a movie and wished that I was with my kids."

Hanks confirms Toy Story 4

Tom Hanks has confirmed 'Toy Story 4' is in production.

The 52-year-old actor has begun recording the voiceover for his role as Woody in the fictional franchise, with the film being lined up for release in two years' time.

Speaking on Britain's 'The Graham Norton Show,' he said: ''We're now recording 'Toy Story 4', so we're doing that and it'll be out in 2018. It takes a long time. We're working on it right now. I have a recording session on December 2.''

However, despite having years of experience portraying the smart-talking sheriff, Hanks has admitted he still finds the task really strenuous on his diaphragm.

He explained: ''It's very hard work animating these films. Honestly, it is because the recording sessions go on for four or five hours ... and my diaphragm gets a work out.

''I'm driving home and I literally have to put an ice pack on my chest because it's clenched throughout.''

Meanwhile, despite openly admitting the ball has started rolling for the next 'Toy Story' movie, the handsome star believes he'll get into trouble for revealing too many details.

He explained: ''Somebody stuck a microphone in my face one day and said, 'Is there going to be a 'Toy Story 4'?' and I said, 'Yeah, yeah, I think so.'

''And I got a call from the Disney lawyers the next day who said, 'You are contractually not allowed to discuss a 'Toy Story 4' or it'll affect the stock market price of the Disney comic stock.' and I just said, 'Hey, I'm sorry.' ''

Kip Moore at SOEC

Multi platinum singer/songwriter KIP MOORE will headline the 2016 WILD ONES TOUR with dates in Canada this winter.  Moore, who has built one of country music's most loyal audiences show by show, will hit the SOEC in Penticton Friday February 19th.

Moore will perform tracks from his sophomore album WILD ONES (MCA Nashville).  A super-sized record caught somewhere between blue-collar country music and stadium-sized rock & roll, each song on the 13-track disc was written by Moore.  Most were born on the road and recorded during "time off" from playing more than 200 shows a year.

“My favorite part of this crazy life we have is playing live,” said Moore. “We've been playing so many of these new songs in the live show because we road-tested them night after night before recording what became the final album.   They were a huge part in helping me formulate what WILD ONES became…we are a tribe.   I'm excited to get back out there and headline and put a show together that is all about them."

Kip Moore’s debut album, Up All Night, was released in 2012 and was the best-selling debut album by a male artist in 2012 and 2013 and included such hits as ‘Hey Pretty Girl’ and ‘Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck’ and ‘Beer Money’.

Opening the show in Penticton on February 19 will be Cadillac Three. Cadillac Three have secured a slot as one of Rolling Stone Country’s “10 New Artists You Need to Know” and was named UK Classic Rock and Roll of Honour Awards Best New Band. They have opened for music greats including ZZ Top, Eric Church, Dierks Bentley and Lynyrd Skynyrd and are set to get the party started this February with Kip Moore.

Tickets for KIP MOORE Wild Ones Tour with special guest CADILLAC THREE go on sale to the general public on Friday, November 27 at 10:00AM and can be purchased online at www.ValleyFirstTix.com, by telephone at 1.877.SOEC.TIX (763.2849) or in person at the Valley First Box Office (at the SOEC) and Wine Country Visitor Centre.

Kate Moss treasures ring

Kate Moss' most treasured possession is her engagement ring.

The 42-year-old supermodel's marriage to Jamie Hince is reportedly on the rocks but she will always value the piece of diamond jewellery he gave her when he proposed in 2011.

Asked her most precious possession, she said: "My engagement ring."

As well as her engagement ring, the British beauty will always treasure her first tattoo, which is between her thumb and forefinger.

Discussing her favourite inking, she said: "My little heart - it was my first."

Kate has a 13-year-old daughter, Lila, from her relationship with Jefferson Hack and thinks the teenager is already showing her own "great" sense of style, though she isn't sure whether she wants to follow in her modelling footsteps.

She said: "She's not wearing my clothes yet, but she has a great style of her own.

"[Will she be a model?] Who knows?"

Kate is widely regarded as a style icon but insists she isn't deliberately setting out to be one, she just enjoys putting outfits together.

She told LOOK magazine: "I don't really think about [being a style icon], I just love clothes and putting looks together."
