Jennifer Lopez On Her Iconic Versace Dress: What’s The Big Deal?

23 Apr

Jennifer Lopez‘s Versace moment at the 2000 Grammys has turned into a Versace decade and three years!

Yes, 13 years later and we’re STILL talking about that dress!

During her interview with W magazine, the August cover girl once again took a walk down that very sheer and revealing memory lane. Not that it was hard for her to do — the dress is at her house!

In her latest tale, Jenny from the Block told the mag how the dress got on her body:

“We had looked at a few dresses, and nothing was right. My stylist said, there’s this one dress, but other people have worn it. I tried on the Versace and decided to wear it anyway. But I was still surprised by the reaction: When I came onstage with David Duchovny, who was the biggest star in the world then, he said to the audience, ‘Nobody is looking at me’. This loud sound started from the back of the room — it was kind of like a roar, over me in the dress. When I went to my seat, I said, ‘What’s the big deal?!’ Puffy and Benny were waiting, and they said, ‘You have to take pictures in that dress.'”

Pictures that will now live on infamy!

We’re still waiting for the day that J.Lo will bring dust off the piece of fabric and wear it again, which she totes would. But until then, check out pics of her and Puff (below)!

Did John Mayer Pop The Question On V-Day?!? Check Out Katy Perry’s Ring HERE!

7 May

ZOMG, is that what we think it is?!

Is our beloved KatyKat getting ready to walk down the aisle again?!

Katy Perry and John Mayer were spotted dining at Vicenti in Brentwood on Thursday, and as they stepped out, photogs caught Katy wearing a very inneresting piece of bling!

A heart-shaped ruby ring on her left hand!

So…has John proposed to the Kandy Kween?!

She sure wasn’t wearing any rings at the Grammys on Sunday!

Or did Katy wear a heart-shaped ring in the spirit of Valentine’s Day and the only finger it happened to fit on was her ring finger?

AAAAH! We are going crazy with the possibilities!

It’s been more than a year since the 28-year-old divorced Russell Brand, and she’s been looking really happy with John recently. Could they finally be ready to take the next step together?

So many questions and no answers!

What do U think? Did John propose or is it just coincidence???

Heartbreak Makes A Hit: The Story Behind Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Stronger’

31 Mar

Adele famously won a whopping six Grammys after penning her heartbreak album 21 in 2012, and now songwriter Ali Tamposi is gunning to do the same.

The 22-year-old, who co-wrote Kelly Clarkson‘s Grammy-nominated “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You),” told Celebuzz on the 2013 Grammy Awards red carpet that she only has her ex-boyfriend to thank for inspiring her to write the little revenge tune.

“I wrote the song heartbroken. I was going through a serious heartbreak and it turned around. I mean, it’s gotten me so far,” she said. “It went No. 1 for four weeks and then I’m here [at the Grammys].”

“So, thank you to my ex-boyfriend for breaking my heart,” she continued, laughing. “I need my heart broken more often!”

Will Tamposi, who’s currently dating Maroon 5‘s James Valentine, write another breakup song anytime soon?

All signs point to yes.

According to the Florida-native, she has a few more ideas in her back pocket.

“I told Kelly…’Listen, you’re engaged. You’ve got rainbows and butterflies. I’ve got enough heartbreak to last us a few more hits,” the songwriter told us.

For now, Tamposi revealed that she’s currently working with Demi Lovato, Shakira and The X Factor alum Fifth Harmony.

But who else does she have her eyes set on?

Cassadee Pope is my roommate. She just won The Voice and she’s in Nashville. Going down there, I’d like to get a few country hits,” Tamposi added. “I’d love to go down there and do that.”

Watch our more from red carpet interview with Tamposi in the video — above.
