Here's One Direction singing Torn on the finale! Look at how bouncy and beautiful Louis was in this performance (and omg angry kitten Harry in those baggy pants).
These tabloids can't even agree on which fake relationship they're supposed to be promoting. E! is pushing Kendall, the Daily Mail says Daisy is his secret girlfriend, and Huffington Post UK says Kara Rose. Just for the sake of completeness Blind Gossip seems to be pushing Nick although one of their silly commenters thought Harry was secretly with Ed Sheeran. Oye! From Huffington Post UK:
The only problem with that story is that the guys were in Spain yesterday so I kind of doubt he was squeezing in a lunch date with Kara Rose. It's almost reaching ridiculous levels of ridiculousness.
Do you think if we point and laugh hard enough all the tabloids will stop with the secret girlfriend and girlfriend gay bar and girlfriend ring stories. It's just ridiculous and dumb and the only thing it's doing is making Harry look gayer than gay because they feel the need to do overkill on the "harry likes vagina" storyline. Every heard of subtlety? Guess not. From the Daily Mail:
Love triangle! Kendall Jenner, 18, is 'crazy about Harry Styles, 19, but he's still texting his secret girlfriend of one month Daisy Lowe, 24'
Young love can be so complicated, especially when you're a world-traveling boy bander.
One Direction singer Harry Styles is romancing not only Kendall Jenner, 18, but he's also been secretly dating sexy British model Daisy Lowe, 24, UsWeekly reported on Wednesday.
'He's been seeing Daisy for a month,' the magazine claimed. 'The Kendall thing isn't serious.'
Reps did not return calls to MailOnline.
Of course they didn't. I'm sure they were like - "oh, you're going to run a story about how Harry likes vag so much he's got a secret girlfriend and a side piece? Run with it!" The rest of the story is a timeline of the Jennetyles dates and a blurb on who Daisy is.
Full of cat videos tonight! Gotta get my Jay on, y'all!
Another video that's part of the Cat Dance Film Festival LOL!
Looks like Fresh Step is trying to give Grumpy cat some competition!
This song just doesn't do it for me and the video plays like a 4-minute commercial for Britney Spears Fantasy. Nice eye candy though.
My sharp-eyed readers thought something sounded familiar about the "harry got kendall a ring" story. Well, last year about this time, we had articles about Harry purchasing a ring for Taylor! From Unreality TV last year on Dec. 8th:
It’s been reported today that One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles has commissioned top Los Angeles jeweller Robert Procop to make a ring for his new girlfriend, US singer Taylor Swift.
“Harry doesn’t want anything too over the top or too ostentatious.
“But he’s happy to splash the cash on a nice ring, not an engagement ring or anything silly like that.
“He’s looking for something traditional.”
The supposed ring last year was for Taylor's birthday on Dec. 13. However, when the big day rolled around he got her....drum roll please...cupcakes! (which were apparently ordered by a woman).
So, they've done 3 PR stunts at the same time the past 3 years with some of the same old tropes - the super public HQ dates, the sleepover with walk of shame, and now the ring purchase stories. Harry's PR team must be the laziest people in the biz or figured if it fooled a bunch of morons last year, it will fool a bunch of morons this year. Why mess with success?
The funny thing is that this time around, even people who believed it last year are catching on that something's up. Harry's good-looking, successful, has money, and is charming. Why the need for all the PR stunt relationships?
They keep trying to make Jennetyles a thing. This article for OMG is PR spin at its best! What better way to convince people Harry (who seemed a bit uninterested in Kendall in the pics, leaving her to fend for herself in crowds) is into Kendall than to say he got her a ring...and conveniently it's from YSL, a brand that Harry seems to be wearing a lot of lately and probably has a deal with. Publicity for brand? Check. From OMG Yahoo UK:
Harry Styles has bought Kendall Jenner a £400 art deco YSL ring to cement their relationship after their New York date - EXCLUSIVE
They spent their New York date dancing the night away in a gay bar.
But it looks like Harry Styles and Kendall Jenner's relationship is hotting up after he bought her a designer RING to thank her for flying to New York.
Harry did a little shopping in New York's Soho to find her the perfect gift for their date, settling on an art deco Yves Saint Laurent ring, worth around £400.
A source exclusively told omg!: "He wanted to thank her for flying out to see him and he knows she likes simple and gold jewellery, so he chose something fairly plain but stylish.
"It’s not a romantic ring as such, it's like a gesture of affection while their relationship is still new. When he was asked about her be blushed, it's obvious there's something special there."
Or he's embarrassed that they trotted him out on a PR date for the third year in a row!
The 19-year-old is totally smitten with Kendall since they started dating several weeks ago (despite insisting they're 'just friends'), and don't go a day without talking.
Our source added: "He thinks she’s incredibly sweet, loves her eyes and figure - and how amazingly kind she is, he's totally charmed by her."
The biggest complaint I've heard is that she's part of the Kardashian clan, known for their reality show and PR stunts. What better way to show that Kendall is not like that than by throwing in a blurb about her delivering Meals on Wheels!
Kendall spends Christmas helping to deliver Meals On Wheels for the sick and elderly, and she's been telling Harry all about it.
The source said: "He thinks she’s got that American sweetness about her and is really 'untouched 'in spite of her famous family and all the privileges she's had."
WTF is American sweetness?
Harry took Kendall to a gay bar on their NY date, trying to keep a low profile and away from the paps.
Yeah, that's the ticket! Do they realize how stupid that sounds? Let's hide in a gay bar to avoid the paps...but oh wait, they said he was a regular there.
An onlooker saw the couple holding hands and looking cosy, while they stayed away from the crowds and dance floor in case they were recognised.
The pair were mobbed outside Soho House over the weekend when fans got wind of where they were.
Overall, I think his article is trying to convince people that Jennetyles is real and not a PR stunt, but good luck with that!
Ok, Harry. Where have we seen something like this before? 50 Shades of Wax Harry.
Meanwhile Niall makes out with himself.
We're at $12,545 and we've got 2 weeks left people. I know it's a long shot that we're going to make it to goal, but I'm going to keep trying! Every little bit counts. So, since today is the 10th, let's do a $10 day! Donate at least 10 dollars (or pounds or Euros) to Louis' birthday charity drive!
And keep helping to spread the word! We've only got 2 weeks to go!
The Gay Bar story has continued to spread and Dlisted has a post up about it:
Thank you, Harry Styles! My job is easier when the jokes write themselves; an Egg McMuffin basket is coming your way.
Harry Styles (a name that always sounds like a character from an Austin Powersmovie) has another album to promote, which means his high-profile showmance with a Jenner is still going strong! Do I even need to specify which Jenner? They’re the same fucking person; dark shiny hair, drowsy-ass eyes, and about as much personality as the busted handle on a shopping bag. But of you MUST know, it’s still Kendall (aka not the one that looks like a dead ringer for Marla Hooch).
E! Online reports that Harry and Kendall (Karry? Hendall? Whocares? Yes, that one!) followed up their dinner date in LA last month with a date at the Gansevoort Hotel in NYC on Saturday. Chill out, moms across America, I can guarantee you they weren’t fucking. Harry and Kendall probably watched Clueless on Netflix while Kendall’s agents, Kris Jenner and Beelzebub, finalized contract specifics (“For the last time, Ms. Jenner, there will be no sex tape released. Please stop setting up the tripod for your Sony Handycam” - Harry’s agent).
After leaving the hotel, Us Weekly reports that Harry and Kendall’s snore-show (I’d call it Ambien! The Musical) made it’s way to Therapy, a gay bar in Hell’s Kitchen. According to bargoers, the two never got up to dance because – DUH – spontaneous natural movement doesn’t run in Kendall’s family. Kendall, stop being lazy; do you want to put “bearding” as a skill on your resume or not? Just remember: what would the Patron Saint of Hired Girlfriends, Taylor Swift do? She’d dance, call the paps, brush her hair 1000 strokes, AND hold a baby at the same time to convince us her and Harry were the real deal.
He ends the article by posting a confused commenter's comments (go there to read) and says:
Don’t you just want to hug her? Oh, you dear, sweet, clueless little thing; you have so much to learn about [this part strikethru'd which apparently my site can't handle LOL - strategic marketing and PR] romance.
Perez also did a story on it and apparently doesn't see a straight dude taking his supposed girlfriend to a gay bar as a giant red flag. I swear Perez hasn't actually touched a computer in years. His poor sister or hired help must be spitting these out. Old Perez would have definitely have had something to say about this besides:
Smooth move taking your partying to a gay club, Harbear—but you knew we'd find out about Lady K sooner or later! Just come out as a couple already, plzzz! It's what everyone wants!
And Hollywood Life has a story too!
So that’s where they were on Saturday night instead of hitting up the ‘SNL’ after party. Harry took Kendall to Therapy, a gay bar in New York City, according to a new report.
Harry Styles and Kendall Jenner made there rounds around New York’s hot spots — and that included the gay bar, Therapy. On Dec. 7, Harry reportedly took his new fling to the bar in Hell’s Kitchen where they were seen holding hands, yet again!
While we’re not sure when they had time for Therapy with their crazy schedules, we know they’re absolutely smitten with each other!
“It was originally for publicity, but this is a case of hormones winning the fight,” the source said. ”Harry likes her. He is having lots of fun with her and thinks she is cool and hot. And he likes that Kendall is trying really hard to get him for her own exclusive relationship. They could definitely be considered as boyfriend-girlfriend bound.”
Well it looks like it’s about to be official! “Kendall definitely has the puppy dog eyes going for Harry. She is falling hard.”
But i think commenters are getting real tired of Bonnie's B.S. A random sampling of comments on the article (her commenters usually are of the young and clueless variety):
Harry is gayer than a priest at a boy scouts convention and if he’s gay so what its his life and freedom to do what he pleases
Everyone in the entertainment business knows he’s gay. Come on wake up!
I love Harry to pieces, he’s sexy AF. And I’m a huge Directioner, but I seriously think that he may be gay. His “womanizer” look would be the perfect cover up. I’m sorry to say, but look at all the facts. He’s also best friends with Nick Grimshaw who is also gay. And is it really normal for a straight guy to always be at a gay bar? I don’t think so. And just so people know, calling him gay is not really an insult at all. For all those people who are using it as an insult. Being gay is an absolutely beautiful thing. So those are my thoughts.
The kardashians and jenner like to date and marry gay men!! I think the term is they are beards for gay men. Maybe they get paid.
One the debut episode of The Sing-Off, Street Corner Renaissance performed a One Direction song. Aww!
The Daily Mail is the latest to post an article about Jennetyles Gay Bar trip:
'He was holding her hand': Harry Styles takes 'new girlfriend' Kendall Jenner to his favourite gay bar in New York for date night
Like just read the headline over in your head and tell me when any of it makes sense.
They were reunited in New York City over the weekend when they were seen leaving the Gansevoort Hotel in the trendy Meatpacking District together.
Soon after Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles then enjoyed lunch at Soho House.
But by nightfall, their day long date was still going, with the One Direction star reportedly taking the reality TV beauty to one of his favourite hot spots, a gay bar in Hells Kitchen called Therapy.
According to Us Weekly, the couple and a few friends attended the trendy watering hole's 'Gays Gone Wild' night.
However, sources say the duo remained very 'low-key', and while dancing is encouraged on the night, Harry and Kendall did not hit the dance floor.
And apparently this is not the first time the British pop star has visited the bar, with insiders close to the singer telling Us Weekly that he's a 'regular' at the popular gay bar when he's visiting the Big Apple.
'Harry has actually been here a few times before,' the source said. 'He's just a regular customer when he comes in.'
As the duo exited the venue, Harry was said to be 'holding Kendall's hand' when, ironically, the 1D star's hit song What Makes You Beautiful came on over the speakers.
And while Kendall has in the past been accused of getting into underage clubs, the pair's outing was legal, as the venue is not just for over 21s.
The bar only asks for ID if patrons wish to drink alcohol.
Interesting that they've left out the earlier quote from US Weekly about him having a beer or cocktail when he's there.
And add Just Jared to the list of tabloids that have posted that photoshopped pic of Harry and Kendall. (Look between Kendall's legs and you'll see the backgrounds don't match).
This Celebuzz article was left in my comments. The whole thing is so weird LOL:
Amongst all the half-truths and outright lies written about celebrities online on any given day, there is one report out today that's extra bullshitty, The cream of the crap, if you will. That report comes from Us Weekly, which claims that Harry Styles, physically one-fifth but personality-wise 100% of One Direction, tookKendall Jenner to Therapy, a gay bar in New York City's Hell's Kitchen neighborhood.
The magazine writes:The same day that the One Direction singer, 19, and model/reality star, 18, were spotting leaving the Ganservoort Hotel in the Meatpacking District together, the pair resurfaced at Therapy with a few other pals, and "didn't make a huge deal about it," the source tells Us. Saturday's theme at Therapy was "Gays Gone Wild," with other bargoers dancing up a storm to pop hits. Alas, Styles, Jenner et al, however, didn't hit the dance floor, the source notes.
Keep in mind that Styles was busy Saturday night, performing on Saturday Night Live.
The most obvious reason that this report is untrue is that there are no pictures. Anywhere. There's nothing on Twitter. Nothing on the bar's Facebook page. Styles and Jenner are both very recognizable public figures and, had they been at the bar, someone most definitely would have gotten a picture and shared it online. Especially at Therapy, whose young-skewing clientele is certainly familiar with at least one of the two.
Us' tipster goes even further, saying, "Harry has actually been her[e] a few times before." And yet there has never been a photo of him at the bar.
Celebuzz reached out to a representative for Therapy, who says there's no truth to the story. "One manager working says he thinks it's a hoax. The manager who was working that night says he doesn't think they were here. Harry tends to stand out in a crowd and Kendall is strikingly gorgeous and he said he didn't remember any girls like that."
Back in the day, Hell's Kitchen was one of my stompin' grounds in NYC. I haven't been to Therapy (although I have been to the nearby VYNL which has tasty food and plenty of pretty gay boys to stare at). I find it so amusing that on a weekend where they did nothing but push a PR stunt hetero relationship, they went to a gay bar. Somehow I feel like they may have not been specific enough when they told Harry to take Kendall out on the town!
And we won't mention it too loud but the US Weekly article did say Harry was a regular who often has a beer or a cocktail...
I'm sure that's a "misprint" (haha!) and in fact, US Weekly has already removed that part of the story from their website. You can see the original wording in the previous article I did on this. But, I thought the cocktail names were quite amusing! I'm sure if Harry were to hypothetical be old enough to drink, he'd have the Oral Fixation or the Size Queen!
UsWeekly has a story about how Harry took Kendall to a gay bar in NYC. And he's apparently a regular at the bar. From USWeekly:
A British pop superstar and Kim Kardashian's gorgeous half-sister walk into a gay bar . . . It sounds like the beginning of a tired old joke, but in this case, it's for real: This past Saturday, Dec. 7, Harry Styles took new girlfriend Kendall Jenner to Therapy, a popular gay bar in Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen nabe, a source confirms exclusively to Us Weekly.
The same day that the One Direction singer, 19, and model/reality star, 18, were spotting leaving the Ganservoort Hotel in the Meatpacking District together, the pair resurfaced at Therapy with a few other pals, and "didn't make a huge deal about it," the source tells Us. Saturday's theme at Therapy was "Gays Gone Wild," with other bargoers dancing up a storm to pop hits. Alas, Styles, Jenner et al, however, didn't hit the dance floor, the source notes.
Gays gone wild, indeed!
And the crooner isn't new to Therapy, either. "Harry has actually been her a few times before," the source explains of the fairly low-key hangout. "He's just a regular customer when he comes in -- he gets a table and usually drinks beer and cocktail on the side," adds the source of Styles, who was dating Taylor Swift around this time last year. As it happens, Styles "walked out when they played 'What Makes You Beautiful,'" as other patrons finally began recognizing the celebrities in their midst, the source said. "He was holding Kendall's hand."
Although the pair have denied any romance, the evidence suggests otherwise: Five days after a news-making dinner date in L.A., Styles was spotted leaving the Malibu home of Kendall's father Bruce Jenner at 9:30 a.m., and the pair reconnected hours later for lunch at Soho House in West Hollywood, with Styles picking up the check.
"They definitely plan to hang out more," another insider told Us.
Oh and there's this article on Blind Gossip (who I'm still side-eyeing but whatever):
p.s. I'm about to go home and I don't have power yet I don't think so you may not hear much from me for awhile!
Mirror hears that Def Leppard lawyers looking at similarities between 1D’s Midnight Memories and Pour Some Sugar On Me
The Mirror has an article that says Def Leppard's lawyers are looking into similarities between Pour Some Sugar on Me and Midnight Memories and oh look, it's Katie Hind again. While I do hear the similarities (it was like one of the first things I noticed when I heard the song), I'm not sure how legit this story is since it's Katie Hind who got called out by Grimmy for making shit up. From the Mirror:
If there is a problem, Harry Styles & Co may well have to order their law team to check the song – the title track of their hit third album – to make sure there is no case to answer.
Midnight Memories doesn’t credit Def Leppard but instead acknowledges 1D members Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson.
A source close to veteran rockers Def said last night: “Music lawyers will routinely scour hits like this one to see if there is any evidence that a band has either copied or cleverly mimicked a Def Leppard song.
“These cases can often take weeks to sort out because we are not talking about peanuts here – the 1D album is selling millions and if the title track goes out as a single it will generate even more money.”
The source added: “Everyone is staying silent at this stage but it’s clear the two songs sound alike – which has been enough for Def Leppard’s aides to pose questions to their legal team.”
The similarities between the guitar chords and vocal arrangements have already been noticed by critics and experts around the world.
The tune – credited to Bunetta/Scott/Ryan/Tomlinson/Payne – was said by US reviewer Nick Catucci to “sound like Def Leppard’s Pour Some Sugar on Me”.
Earlier this year a critic claimed One Direction’s Best Song Ever was similar to the 1971 Who classic Baba O’Riley.
A spokesman for Def Leppard refused to comment on the Midnight Memories claims last night.
I actually wonder sometimes if 1D does this on purpose just to create a buzz.
It's a slow news day. All the Harry articles are old and about Jennetyles being spotted in NYC. All the Louis articles are really old and are about how he and Liam didn't get along at first. I had to go 5 pages in to find a 1D article on Unreality TV, which is unheard of! I'm hoping we don't see or hear anything from the boys for days (although then fans start making up drama because they're bored). And if we get HQ pap shots of Harry doing runs in certain neighborhoods, I'll laugh all the way to one of Harry's non-lived in houses.
Not gonna lie, my favorite part of these videos is listening to the fans bicker among themselves.
