Cheryl Cole Strips Off For New L’Oreal Advert

Cheryl Cole L'Oreal

Cheryl Cole has stripped down and taken a bath on her latest photo shoot for cosmetics giant L’Oreal.

The 29-year-old beauty may have only just left Girls Aloud for good but it seems there is no rest for the wicked (or sexy, in this case) as she posed for the latest Glam Shine Stain Splash campaign. 

Luckily for Cheryl, the shoot involved being surrounded by bubbles and rose petals in a bath – a somewhat more relaxing gig than her grueling Girls Aloud Ten reunion tour.

Pictured by fashion photographer Rankin, Cheryl can be seen in one shot wearing nothing but a tiny white bathing suit as she smolders for the camera.

Got to Dance Lukas McFarlane Q&A: ‘I want James Arthur collaboration’

lukas-macfarlane-got-to-dance

After weeks of auditions and live shows, Got to Dance came to an end last night (March 17), as Canadian-born Lukas McFarlane was crowned the winner. 

McFarlane kicked off Got to Dance with a memorable first audition – one that judge Ashley Banjo thought might be his favourite ever. His mix of contemporary dance and charisma managed to win over the public and earned him £250,000. Not long after Davina McCall called out his name as the winner, Digital Spy had a chat with Lukas backstage to find out how he was feeling, and what his plans are for the future:

First of all, congratulations. What a performance. Not just tonight, but throughout the series. How does it feel to be crowned Got to Dance 2013 winner?
“It feels amazing, it feels unreal. Not in a million years did I ever think that this would be possible ever. I’m on cloud nine.”

And what does it mean to have your family here, especially your mum?
“It means everything. She is the reason for all of this. The fact that she could be right there and she got to be a part of that, it’s as much her success as it is mine. Amazing, amazing, amazing!”

How did it feel on stage waiting for the verdict?
“It was the worst. It was the worst feeling in the world. That waiting, with the music and the lights. My heart… oh, it was horrible, but worth it, clearly.”

This year has seen some great acts with a lot of diversity, from tap to street, animation, krumping and contemporary dance. Who did you see as your main competitor, and who did you really admire?
“I think Ruff Diamond are amazing. Their work ethic, wow. I’ve spent time round them this weekend and they never stop practising. They’re unreal, they wanted it and I really have respect for them. Also, Tom is my little brother. I’ve been there with him from the beginning, and I think he is amazing and he has so much to offer this world. I freaking love Tom!”

Have you been surprised by the level of public support?
“Yes! How I did it, I really don’t know. Thank you everyone, because I’m a no-one, I’m a nobody and yet everyone has got behind me. I don’t know. Thank you so much.”

What advice would you give anyone entering a competition like Got to Dance, or any similar show?
“I would say be you, because it always works, and if you pretend to be someone else you’re not doing yourself justice. Be you, and if you’re on a show, enjoy it. It’s a show, and take it for what it is, but most importantly be you.”

Good advice right there. What did you find was the toughest challenge during the competition?
“The mental aspect of it was so hard. There is so much pressure and so much stress involved. Physically, it’s hard but mentally, I never expected it to be this hard.”

So have you been training every day during the competition?
“For sure. I train all the time anyway, because this is my job, but I definitely went into overdrive for this competition, especially after the semi-final.”

So what’s the long-term goal you most want to achieve?
“Man, I’m so overwhelmed right now – my long-term goal is just to keep doing what I’m doing and helping people, changing people. I just want to make a difference, I don’t want to be just a dancer, I want it to mean something.”

And what music act would you like to team up with?
“James Arthur.”

music-james-arthur

Does he inspire you, and is that the reason you chose his cover of ‘Impossible’ to dance to in the final?
“I worked for James Arthur on X Factor. I met him a lot, and his voice, I’ve never ever related to a voice like his. When he sings, it’s the way I feel when I dance, and I would love to collaborate with him on anything because I just think he is such a true artist. He is so true to what he does and he is not changing for the world. Hearing him makes me want to move, his voice is how I feel. He is an incredible artist.”

What will you be doing with the £250,000 prize money?
“No idea. I don’t have a clue right now. I can’t even fathom that amount of money. I’m a poor serving dancer. I will try and give some to my parents, but I don’t think they will take it, but they so deserve it.”

Finally, is there anything else you’d like to add?
“Just thank you from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much because I don’t have anybody here, and the fact that you like what I do, because I’m just being me, that is such a cool concept. I’m so blessed, I’m so grateful.”

Noiceeee!

Beyoncé Premieres New Song ‘Bow Down/I Been On’ *Rolls Eyes*

beyonce2013

Beyoncé has unveiled new track ‘Bow Down/I Been On’.

The singer released the song yesterday (March 17th) on her official Tumblr page.

The second half of the track includes the instrumental featured in the singer’s O2 Priority campaign for tickets to her upcoming world tour. It is rumoured to have been produced by Hit-Boy.

It is not known whether ‘Bow Down/I Been On’ will be the first single to be taken from the star’s upcoming fifth studio album. No release details for the record have been announced.

The new LP will be Beyoncé’s first release since 2011’s 4 and follows her headline half-time show at this year’s Super Bowl in February.

The singer’s representatives refused to comment on a leaked tracklist for her as-yet-untitled album, which included collaborations with Rihanna, Justin Timberlake and Lady GaGa.

‘The Mrs Carter Show’ world tour kicks off in Belgrade, Serbia on April 15 before reaching the UK on April 26. The singer will play 13 UK and Ireland dates, including six shows at London’s O2 Arena in May.

Listen to ‘Bow Down/I Been On’ below but I must say, we’re not 100% convinced!

Cara Delevingne Introduces New Label Cécile

cecile_cara_v_7mar13_pr_b_426x639

CARA DELEVINGNE has already led the charge in introducing the fashion world to Cécile – a new British label that has launched for spring/summer 2013. The Vogue cover girl stepped out wearing one of the inaugural collection’s slogan T-shirts during Paris Fashion Week, sparking buzz about the origins of the little-known brand.

The founders of the label – a small group of experienced industry experts – wish to remain anonymous so that the focus is always on the collections, rather than the designers, but they admit that endorsement couldn’t come better than from that of fashion’s model-of-the-moment.

“She’s amazing and we are thrilled that she is a fan of the brand,”
one of the Cécile designers told us. “She was someone who was in our minds throughout designing the last collection, so her wearing Cécile is the perfect fit.”

Cécile – named after one of the founders’ grandmothers (“an eccentric artist, who was often seen dressed head-to-toe in animal prints”), – was conceived after the band of creatives decided that there was a gap in the market for a brand that could be worn with a variety of wardrobe pieces.

“We felt that there was a need for the perfect T-shirt to wear under a Celine jacket or the statement sweatshirt with your favourite jeans,” one of the founders said. “We wanted to focus on our very European aesthetic, but keep it super affordable and great quality. Cécile is all about high impact T-shirts that enhance your best basics, high-end or high-street.”

The team, who are based in London, describe the label as “bold, luxe street, French and not too serious with a side of mange tout” – a nod to the label’s playful aesthetic. T-shirts come either bearing bright colourful motifs or witty slogans – such as “Written and directed by Woody Allen”.

“We see it moving with the times,” a spokesperson for the label told us of her hopes for the label. “Right now, we are all feeling vibrant prints and the right kind of slogans, but maybe next year it will soften depending on our mood. There is already a Cécile sensibility, which is a little tongue-in-cheek and that will always be there.”

The collection is available to buy at Liberty.

Tulisa Is “Embarrassed” To Be Sacked From The X Factor

Well, it can’t feel nice to be dumped from the biggest TV show in the country, can it?

A source told The Sun newspaper: “To say Tulisa is gutted is an understatement. She’s a bit embarrassed to be on the scrapheap when she delivered with Little Mix.”

Tulisa, 24, is also reported to be gutted to be missing out on the hefty pay packet that comes with being an X Factor judge.

“She’s thrown away one of the most high-profile jobs in the industry as well as one of the best paid.”
“But she simply wasn’t up to scratch last year and Simon Cowell had no real option.”

According to Simon, “Things will be changing, yeah!”
Are we upset Tulisa’s gone?? Ummm…not sure you know but aslong as they replace her with some interesting eye-candy then we’ll be good!

Canelo v Mayweather: Last of the Megafights


Canelo Alvarez of Mexico celebrates his fifth round TKO victory over Josesito Lopez of the U.S. for the WBC super …

This past Saturday night in Las Vegas, Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez stopped Josesito Lopez in five rounds to retain his WBC light middleweight title for the fifth time.

It wasn’t supposed to be Lopez: Victor Ortiz was foolishly all but named as the next challenger before he had fought Lopez, as scheduled. Not that it mattered who won Ortiz-Lopez and moved on to the title shot. Canelo would have stopped ‘Vicious’ Vic, too.

That isn’t to belittle either challenger: both are good fighters. Lopez especially has significantly raised his stock and his 2012 earnings even in defeat. Jose Miguel Cotto, Shane Mosley, Matthew Hatton and Kermit Cintron are good fighters too.

But they’re not great. And Alvarez is destined for greatness.

The Mexican is 41-0-1 with 30 inside the distance at the age of just 22. His performances have the confidence and maturity of a veteran who has ruled the sport for over a decade. His fights are progressively becoming cash cows.

Canelo is ready to fight Miguel Cotto. He’s ready for Sergio Martinez. He’s ready for Manny Pacquiao. And yes, he’s ready for Floyd Mayweather.

If we’re being honest, we are never going to get Mayweather-Pacquiao. Vitali and Wlad would rather cruise in first gear all the way to retirement than box each other. And Pacquiao-Marquez IV will no doubt be an enjoyable battle, but the pairing is beyond stale.

Those who claim boxing is a dying business may as well write ‘troll’ on their foreheads in permanent marker, but there’s no denying the distinct lack of big — no, BIG — grade ‘A’ match-ups that will hush all the talk of Barcelona, Roger Federer, Tiger Woods and Usain Bolt on any given weekend and draw all eyes that Saturday to the ring.

Canelo-Mayweather on Cinco de Mayo weekend 2013 would.

In the build-up, at the box office and especially in the ring the two assured counter-punchers would be virtually guilty of arson, that much they would set alight.

Both would also have points to prove: Alvarez that he truly is worthy of pound-for-pound best billing, Mayweather that he does welcome challengers to his throne after having his motives questioned during the Pacquiao manoeuvring.

Canelo said after the Lopez win that he is ready for the big boys. It’s hardly a coincidence that Cotto was there in attendance. Though the Puerto Rican has undefeated American Austin Trout up next in December, it is clear who he has next in his cross-hairs.

Good. Why not? Canelo-Cotto would be an great chapter in the never-ending sporting rivalry between PR and Mexican boxers.

Just make sure the ‘Money Man’ is next, if so. Boxing has a rocket to the moon it’s waiting to ride, and it’s strapped to the back of these two men.

It could be the last huge headliner realistically left, at least in the near future.

+++

This coming weekend sees a fight which has quite the buzz on a strictly-British level. Kevin Mitchell heads to Ricky Burns’s back yard in Glasgow to challenge for his WBO lightweight title.

Despite all of the support and endorsement of his peers, Mitchell is a heavy underdog against the classy Burns.

The East Londoner has only lost once, to Michael Katsidis. Unfortunately, he was destroyed in three rounds by a fighter who has been exposed at higher levels since, including in Glasgow against Burns.

The defeat happened at Upton Park, home of his beloved West Ham United, in front of his friends, family and fellow ‘Irons’ diehards. Physically and mentally, he has only managed two fights in the two and a half years since.

Perhaps being the guest instead of the host will give ‘The Dagenham Destroyer’ a psychological edge. The Pugilist doubts it. But there is an opportunity in this publicised fight for a world championship for Mitchell to get back on track, even in defeat.

If he impresses at the SECC Arena, a tough period in his once-meteoric career will be over. He will have proven he can hang, and maybe even one day get a world title of his own.

This writer believes Mitchell will lose to Burns — but also hopes he can indeed gain a victory in defeat.

Let’s be real…Mayweather is never gonna loose!
