Justin Bieber never passes up an opportunity to go shirtless, so we’re sure he was probably psyched to have another chance to show off his abs on the cover of Men’s Health magazine. Since the release of his equally shirtless Calvin Klein campaign, there has been lots of controversy surrounding the 21 year old’s midsection — and it once again reared its head when this cover image hit the Internet this week.

Here, we have Justin in his natural state (furrowed brow, no shirt), this time with his hands behind his head. A source tells Defamer that Justin’s body had been retouched for the shot, despite claims from Men’s Health that the singer’s image was not altered for the cover. A spokesperson for the magazine said, “I would say it is not photoshopped,” before following up with a firmer, “No, he looks amazing.”
But whether or not Justin was retouched, one thing’s for certain: He’s got a nice, flat tummy, which is more than we can say for ourselves. Keep up the good work, Biebs.

Of course Kimye is at Paris Fashion Week and of course everyone is talking about it. Granted, Kimye’s mere existence is enough to churn out a million words of tabloid fodder, but this time, it’s Kim Kardashian’s hair that is getting the attention. The reality star has dyed her dark chocolate locks platinum blonde and unveiled the new color today as she made the rounds during PFW.
Kim’s saga with her hair goes beyond coloring and cutting. The reality star revealed to People that she’s struggled to maintain her hairline for several years. “I have the hairiest forehead you could ever imagine, and I would always break out and get all cracky on my forehead just from all the hair that I had,” she told People. “If you Google 2008 or 2007, I had the craziest, hairiest hairline, so I did laser it. Everyone would just Photoshop it every time I did a photo shoot [anyway]. I didn’t really change the shape, I just got rid of all the baby hairs.”
This time around, it’s photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott who have posted a little peek of Kate, and although it’s not exactly one of their usual behind-the-scenes snaps of friends on holiday, it is an unpublished shot that we weren’t expecting to scroll past while innocently eating our cereal.
Shot in 2012, Kate is totally nude in the photo with only a strategically placed line across the chest and just the right amount of crop protecting her modesty. The photographers paid homage on Instagram with the caption: “Unpublished 2012 #katemoss #mertandmarcus #mertalasandmarcuspiggott #nude #icon #muse.” (more…)
The Australian reports that all labels were required to have two wholesale seasons behind them, and that the show’s sponsor, St George Bank, will be offering the designers financial advice and mentoring for 12 months. (more…)
Rogue trader Natalie Bassingthwaighte figured having singer, actress, televison personality, autumn racing ambassador, mum and wife on her resume simply wasn’t enough, so she’s gone and started her very own kids wear line called Chi Khi (pronounced cheeky, of course).
Natalie unveiled Chi Khi’s debut clothing and accessories range in Sydney’s Surry Hills yesterday, a monochromatic size 0-4 collection, brought to life as she couldn’t find anything on-point for her own kids, Hendrix, 21 months, and Harper, 4. “I’ve never really been into kids clothing being too cutesy,” she said on Chi Khi’s website. “I love them to be quirky, playful and cool!”
It’s not just the style side of things that’s got Natalie all passionate about kids clothing, either, noting that her two “minis” have sensitive skin which can be hard to dress. “I can’t count the times I’ve bought something for my daughter and she wouldn’t wear it because it was too itchy or uncomfortable,” Natalie explained on Chi Khi’s website. Because of that, the 38-year-old has committed to using the best bamboo and cotton fabrics for the range. (more…)
We keep trying to push it to the back of our minds, but there was a period last year when Cody Simpson and Gigi Hadid broke up. It was super brief, but that was just enough time for Cody to work on a Gigi-inspired tune, Taylor Swift style.
This week Cody dropped the video for the mid-tempo single “New Problems”. It’s actually quite catchy, mind you, and it’s all about moving on to “new girls, new problems”. We’re not assuming or guessing it’s about Gigi, either. Cody himself has owned up to it himself.
The Australian singer confirmed to MTV News that the track was inspired by “the time that Gigi and I broke up for a couple of months.” You’d think the Sports Illustarted mega-babe would be pretty peeved that boo released a song which takes a dig at her GF skills (count your blessings, mate), but apparently it’s all g-g.
Cody told MTV News Gigi was “OK with it”. Maybe she hadn’t hear the lyrics saying things like “You’d do anything to deflate me” and “I’ll never do that again”? Ah, kids these days.
