A Star is Born received eight nominations for the Oscars, including for Best Picture. And while Gaga’s co-star Bradley Cooper was nominated in the Best Actor category, he was notably snubbed for Best Director – the film is his directorial debut.

Speaking about the snub, Gaga told The Los Angeles Times: “Well, you know, you never know what’s going to happen. But at the end of the day, he knows that he’s the best director in my eyes, and in all of our eyes as his cast. I know that he’s so happy that we’ve all been nominated and that the film was recognised and we all feel really, really beyond elated for the recognition.”

“I don’t register this film in my mind as a time in my life when I ‘filmed a movie,’” she told me. “I register it as a time in my life when I became somebody else, and Bradley became someone else, and we lived those characters and fell in love.” A day like today, then, lets her recapture the magic of that time with Ally and Jackson Maine. “I feel them very much alive,” Gaga said. “And I think I always will.”

“Everyone who worked on this film truly risked putting themselves out there – in the hope that in doing so people will connect and feel something deep and personal – the way films have made me feel since I was a kid,” he said. “When I got this opportunity I knew I had to risk it all because I may never get another chance – so to be here today in a place where people who have seen the film are talking about how it makes them feel, something deep – that simple human thing – that we need each other – and the Academy to recognise that this morning – I just am so grateful.”

Sam Smith Is Reclaiming His “Curves” And Fighting “The Fuck Back”

“In the past if I have ever done a photo shoot with so much as a t-shirt on, I have starved myself for weeks in advance and then picked and prodded at every picture and then normally taken the picture down,” Smith captioned the photo. “Yesterday I decided to fight the fuck back. Reclaim my body and stop trying to change this chest and these hips and these curves that my mum and dad made and love so unconditionally. “

While the photo was a departure for the singer-songwriter ― who is frequently photographed in suits, as well as the occasional caftan or romper ― it isn’t the first time he’s spoken about his battle with body image.

In 2015, he told “60 Minutes Australia” that he’s more offended when people make comments about his weight than when he hears slurs about his sexuality.

“I think just because I’ve accepted that, if someone calls me a faggot, it’s like, I am gay, and I’m proud to be gay, so there’s no issues there,” he said at the time. “If someone calls you fat, it’s like, that’s something I want to change.”

While Smith made headlines for losing a reported 50 pounds after his 2014 debut album, “In the Lonely Hour,” rocketed him to stardom, he said he remained “a bit obsessive” about his weight.

“When I was shooting my first music videos, I just wasn’t happy with the way I looked, so I was trying to control the way the camera moved,” he told V Magazine in an interview conducted by Sarah Jessica Parker. “I was constantly looking in the mirror, pinching my waist, weighing myself every day.”

Smith’s photo was snapped by LA-based queer artist and photographer Ryan Pfluger. The image shows Smith on the beach at sunset, shirtless and untouched.

“Some may take this as narcissistic and showing off but if you knew how much courage it took to do this and the body trauma I have experienced as a kid you wouldn’t think those things,” Smith continued. “Thank you for helping me celebrate my body AS IT IS @ryanpfluger. I have never felt safer than I did with you.”

Ciara’s New Song “Greatest Love” Is Perfect And Really Personal

Valentine’s Day is just two days away, but Ciara has already started the celebrations early. The 33-year-old put on quite the sexy performance in her music video for new single, Greatest Love.

Pushing about the love she has for her husband, Ciara sang, “I should’ve known when you took my son as your own / I ain’t saying I ain’t like all the carats and the stone / It’s just your love that I want / Now it’s you and me against, ‘gainst the entire world, the entire world / I see our love when I look at our baby girl, I’m a lucky girl.”

The song, produced by Jasper and Rod Cameron, is the kind of slow bop I’ll be body rolling into spring with; It picks up right where 2013’s “Body Party” left off. But “Greatest Love” is, first and foremost, a love song for Ciara’s husband Russell Wilson. Lines like “I should’ve known when you took my son as your own” and “I see our love when I look at our baby girl, I’m a lucky girl” are direct references to their blended family. Ciara’s oldest son is with rapper Future and, speaking of him, I couldn’t help but wonder if this line was about their breakup: “Ask God to take out everything toxic in my life and baby, he did.”

The video comes after the Grammy winning singer announced another endeavor last week, her Beauty Marks Entertainment company – a company where music intersects with fashion, tech, film and philanthropy.

Speaking at the 2019 MAKERS conference, she couldn’t help but gush about her man Russell and his ongoing support.

‘I’m a strong woman but I need a strong man by my side, and I know I can do anything that I put my mind to,’ she told Yahoo Lifestyle.

‘But I think at some point in time it’s good to let somebody also do some stuff for you too. The best thing is when you have a man that’s strong. A strong man that’s smart and wise and also loves you and has your back and lifts you up and empowers you.’

Emma Stone & Haim Recreated Spice Girls Video

Tell me what you want, what you really, really want. Do you wanna see the Spice Girls reunion tour next year with a handful of the biggest celebrities? Well, first, you gotta watch Spice Girls superfans Emma Stone and HAIM recreate the music video dance for “Stop.”

Seeing the show with Stone would be awesome for a number of reasons, but mostly because Stone is a certified Spice Girls stan. The ladies announced their reunion tour in November 2018 around the same time Stone was doing promo for her film The Favourite. During a stint on The Tonight Show, Stone jokingly told Jimmy Fallon that she changed her name from Emily to Emma “because of Baby Spice.”

As for the Stone/Haim connection, we’re guessing they met through Taylor Swift? Swift and Haim have collaborated and even vacationed in Hawaii together; Stone has been in the Swift squad since day one, so it all checks out. Spice Girls reunion tour tickets are available on their website or you can enter the Omaze contest for a chance to roll up to the show with your VIP girl gang.

The Spice Girls, minus Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham, are getting back together for a U.K. Stadium tour that opens in Manchester on May 29 and finishes with three nights in London beginning June 13. After the official announcement was made, tickets sold out so fast that the gals added more concert dates. So, yeah, this is a big deal.

Fans can enter for the chance to win by donating funds through Omaze.com/GirlPower. All proceeds are going to support PATH, Child Mind Institute, The Los Angeles LGBT Center, Comic Relief U.K., Girl Up, and Girls’ Education via Charities Aid Foundation of America.

“And think about it you guys, think of how much fun this is going to be, us all together at a freaking Spice Girl concert,” Este says before lip-syncing the final verse and walking off with a smirk.   

“Are we sure that we want her to come with us to that?” Stone jokes, as the other girls assure her that Este is just “a little excited.”

The “My Church” singer-songwriter, 27, announced her engagement to Hurd, 32, on Sunday, posting a series of photos in which she shows off her new accessory. In one, she holds a Corona Light while resting her hand on Hurd’s leg, a nod to the lyrics of “Love In a Bar,” the single he wrote about their relationship.

And I feel like the last two years, after touring and growing up a bit more — and obviously I’ve found somebody that understands me now, and have fallen in love and gotten married — my [perspective on] songwriting is just a little different. It’s a little lighter than it was the first time around!” she says with a laugh, adding, “I’m not quite as bitter.”

Morris is bringing that new maturity to her upcoming album.

“This album is really about self-acceptance and partner acceptance,” she says. “The first half of the album is very self-reflective, and it’s more about me. Then the second half of the record transitions into me being the counterpart to somebody else. I didn’t have any love songs on [debut album] Hero, so there are a lot more on this one, and I think that’s been a really beautiful side to being a touring musician: You never see the person, you miss them all the time, and he’s a musician as well, so we’re constantly writing with each other or about each other. A lot of these songs reflect that.”

Another shows the couple gazing into each others’ eyes.

Morris simply captioned the images, “Yes.” with an engagement ring emoji.

Hurd’s most recent Instagram post was a snap of him and Morris heading out on a boat ride with the date of the proposal, July 3, as the caption.
