MTV announced their nominees for the 2015 Video Music Awards on Tuesday (July 21) and it’s pretty safe to say that Nicki Minaj was displeased with her two nods.
Given that Taylor Swift received 9 nominations (7 of which for her video for “Bad Blood”), the “Pink Friday” rapper went on a Twitter tirade claiming that her own videos weren’t considered because of who she is.
The relationship between the MTV network and the Parents Television Council has never been friendly, and with the recent announcement that Miley Cyrus will host the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, the PTC is furious.
Tim Winter, the president of the Parents Television Council, released a statement on Monday (July 21) to publicly denounce the “Wrecking Ball” babe’s gig, especially given that the VMAs are usually “profane” and “sexually explicit.”
As one of the most versatile posers in her field, Karlie Kloss is cool and confident on the front page of the August 2015 issue of Self magazine.
The 22-year-old stunner flaunts her flexibility in her Paola Kudacki-captured photo shoot, citing her ballet roots as her secret to success- “The reason why I’ve had a career is because I can move.” Journalist Meredith Bryan writes, "In an industry that once embraced fragile thinness, Kloss has done things her way, helping usher in an age of ripped abs on the Victoria’s Secret runway.”
She’s been featured in their ads since 2013 and now Taylor Swift is featured in a new global brand platform from Keds footwear.
The “Shake It Off” songstress is the face of “Ladies First,” and Keds president Chris Lindner told WWD, “A new generation of women has been leading an exciting cultural shift redefining the conversation about equality and female empowerment. Ladies First is a celebration of amazing women like Taylor Swift who are blazing new trails every day.”
Combining two of her favorite things- reality television and alcohol- Khloe Kardashian has inked a deal for a new series on the FYI network.
The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star posted a selfie while drinking wine via Instagram and wrote, “Excited to announce my new talk show ‘Kocktails with Khloe’ on the @FYI network!! Can't wait to show you all what we have in store for you on the show. More to come soon!”
