Australian model Bridget Malcolm, who made her Victoria’s Secret debut last week, has taken to Instagram overnight urging her 165,000-plus followers to stop with the skinny shaming. 

Following comments which flooded in on her bikini-clad Instagram photographs including but not limited to, “She looks like a bag of bones” and “Such a terrible role model for young girls,” the Victoria’s Secret golden girl has fronted her haters with an urging message to stop critiquing her model frame.

Bridget responded with a detailed protest of a post, writing, “Can we STOP with the skinny shaming please? I am extremely fit and healthy and am not in the slightest way anorexic.”  (more…)

Although her last name might suggest otherwise, Conchita Wurst is the best, and the international sensation is bringing her all-round greatness to Sydney next year for a one-night Mardi Gras event.

Dubbed “Conchita: From Vienna with Love”, the Eurovision winner will make her Sydney debut at the Sydney Opera House on the night of March 3, 2016, alongside the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. Conchita will also be joined on-stage by Mardi Gras ambassador and drag diva Courtney Act, cabaret performers Paul Capsis and Trevor Ashley, and a “surprise guest”, according to the official press release.

The bearded lady will perform songs from her debut self-titled album, plus music from artists like Shirley Bassey and Cher, who have inspired her along the way. She explains that the upcoming gig will definitely be a “highlight” of her career, saying “From Vienna with Love will build a bridge across the globe from Vienna to Sydney, full of music, love and fun.”

Nick Jonas, Delta Goodrem, The Presets, Kylie and Dannii Minogue, Adam Lambert, Calvin Harris and Kelly Rowland are just some of the big names who have performed during Sydney’s Mardi Gras festivities over the years, and we’re equally, if not more excited for Conchita’s inevitable domination on our shores. 

Tickets for Conchita’s show are available here from today, November 18, with prices starting at $62.

We’ve been anticipating the release of Gods of Egypt for some time now, and not just because Gerald Butler is one darn-fine specimen to look at on a gigantic screen for over an hour.

Following on from Aussie-filled movie Mad Max: Fury Road, Gods of Egypt features a good mix of Aussie favourites including Geoffrey Rush, Brenton Thwaites and models-turned-actresses and Mad Max sister-wives Courtney Eaton and Abbey Lee.

Filmed in Sydney, Brenton and Courtney both have major roles in the film as characters “Bek” and “Zaya”, respectively. “She plays my girlfriend in the movie and we play mortals together in a world where gods and mortals co-exist,” 25-year-old Brenton told The West Australian. “She was fun to work with.” (more…)

WATCH: Adele’s ‘When We Were Young’ Is Here In Full

Yesterday saw the world freakout over the preview of Adele’s new track “When We Were Young”, and that was only a mere one-minute taste, so you can safely say we’re really losing the plot now that the song’s video clip has been released.

Based at The Church Studios in London, the clip sees the UK singer getting last minute hair and makeup touches before building up to the chorus, with minimal instrumentals backing the smooth yet powerful vocals. 

Then, as expected, magic happens as the record-breaking artist belts out the ballad in true Adele style. Uploaded over night to YouTube, there’s a reason this video has already smashed out 1 million views.

Watch it for yourself in the video above.

Cate Blanchett’s Holiday Cover for W Magazine Leaves Us Cold (Forum Buzz)

You’re about to see a whole lot of Cate Blanchett down at your local newsstand. The Aussie actress already fronts Vogue Australia‘s current offering and is now unveiled as W magazine‘s latest cover subject. We saw Cate’s appearance coming from a mile away, but the finished outcome leaves our forums cold. Shot by artistic photographer Tim Walker and styled by Jacob K, Cate wears a dramatic creation by Emporio Armani teamed with intriguing headgear from Patricia Underwood for W‘s double December/January installment.

Someone should remind W that Halloween was back in October. “Tim Walker’s schtick is getting a bit tired. At this point it no longer feels imaginative and wondrous, at this point we know exactly what we’re getting. Looks completely reflexive and not particularly inspiring because we’ve seen it all before,” discredited dior_couture1245 right away. (more…)
