it’s in the bag

Taylor Swift may have broken the record for the most wins at the 2019 American Music Awards this week, but it was Lizzo’s teeny tiny handbag that stole the show. The singer/rapper sent the internet into a frenzy when she turned up with her Valentino accessory, which measured no more than 3cm wide. “I got tampons in here, a flask of tequila, condoms,” she quipped. “There’s only three in the world.” The fashion statement instantly spawned dozens of memes, with the 31-year-old sharing some of her favourites to Instagram. “@maisonvalentino bag big enough for my f--ks to give. Big body bitch in a Valentin-HO custom look for AMAs,” she wrote in a post. Lizzo had a breakout year with the release of her album, Cuz I Love You. Her single, ‘Truth Hurts’, which was released…

taylor’s triumph

In what was her first live TV performance in two years, Selena Gomez opened the 2019 American Music Awards on November 25 in LA with a shaky rendition of her hits ‘Lose You to Love Me’ and ‘Look at Her Now.’ “She definitely had a panic attack,” a source tells WHO, saying that her anxiety “threw her off ” right before she hit the stage. “She was nervous. She really wanted to deliver.” But her loyal pal Taylor Swift was in full fangirl mode, proudly cheering her on. After a drama-filled period locked in a public feud with music mogul Scooter Braun over the rights to her music library, things were looking up for Swift, 29. With her Artist of the Year and Favourite Pop/Rock album wins, the singer made history…

mum charged with car murders

AQUEENSLAND MOTHER WAS charged with murder this week after her two young girls were found dead inside a black station wagon as temperatures outside soared to 31 degrees. Paramedics tried to revive Darcey-Helen, 2, and 1-year-old Chloe-Ann on Saturday, but both had died from exposure to the extreme heat. Their 27-year-old mum, Kerri-Ann Conley, was remanded in custody to appear at Beenleigh Magistrates Court on December 11. She is also accused of drug possession. Darcey-Helen’s shattered father, who also acted as a dad to Chloe-Ann, said they were loved by everyone they met. “I absolutely adored them both,” he told the Courier Mail. “They were just two peas in a pod.” 9 News reported that when Conley discovered them, she desperately splashed them with water to cool them down, but they had allegedly…

caught on camera

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE HAS FOUND himself in hot water after a night out in New Orleans. In town to film the American football movie Palmer, the ‘SexyBack’ singer, 38, was out drinking with cast and crew when he was spotted around midnight on November 21 on the balcony of hot spot Absinthe House. A video and photos show Timberlake, who’s been married to actress Jessica Biel, 37, since 2012 (the couple are parents to 4-year-old son Silas), looking unsteady on his feet and getting suspiciously cosy with actress and co-star Alisha Wainwright, 30. “They were smiling and laughing,” a source told UK’s The Sun, which first published the images. “At one stage, he grabbed her hand and rested it on his knee. She then gently started stroking his leg. Then he clutched her…

FOOD DELIVERY GIANT UBER EATS HAS A LONG history of celebrity-studded commercials, but this week they really raised the bar! Following on from the likes of Sophie Monk, Boy George, Jimmy Barnes, Rebel Wilson, Naomi Watts and Lee Lin Chin are the world’s most famous reality star and Sharon Strzelecki from Kath & Kim as a pair of netballers. The two of them eagerly wait for their food to arrive – chicken schnitty with chips and chicken salt for Kim Kardashian West, and pesto gnocchi and garlic bread for Sharon – before Sharon gives a lesson in how to pronounce ‘nice’. “It’s ‘NOICE’,” she insists repeatedly as her American teammate looks nonplussed. Speaking to the Herald Sun, Szubanski said: “With both elite netball and indoor cricket commitments to juggle, Sharon doesn’t normally agree to…

WHISPERING INTO EACH other’s ears and curling up together poolside in Miami, Kaia Gerber and Pete Davidson seemed oblivious to all the other sun worshippers around them as they kissed and cuddled on their loungers. At one point, it seems things even got too hot and heavy for the pair, who moved to the cool water to continue their public displays of affection. The romantic getaway was another sign that things are getting serious quickly for the model daughter of Cindy Crawford and the Saturday Night Live star, 26, having been inseparable since going public with their romance just weeks ago. “They spent the afternoon on the beach with a big group of friends,” an insider told E! News. “They both seemed very happy.” Later that night, 18-year-old Gerber went as Davidson’s plus-one to…
