Leona Lewis Splits From Her High School Sweetheart

Leona Lewis, the woman responsible for song above that single-handedly got me through my last break-up (I am so lame), has broken up with her boyfriend of ten years, Lou Al-Chamaa.

From EarthNews:

The ‘Bleeding Love’ singer and Lou – who met when they were just 10 – decided to call it quits after Leona’s busy work schedule stopped them from being able to spend any quality time together.

A friend told Britain’s Sunday Mirror newspaper: “Things have been under pressure for ages between them and they have finally realised that things are not going to be able to progress.

“Leona’s schedule means she’s in the States a lot when Lou’s in London and then when he goes out she’s over here. Then there’s the fact she’s been totally immersed in preparing for her tour. They have barely spend any time together whatsoever.”

The final straw is believed to have come on Wednesday (16.06.10) when Lou didn’t turn up to see Leona perform at London’s O2 Arena, despite living just down the road in Hackney.

Honestly, thank God for break ups. It sounds like this dude was both unsupportive and holding her back. When a relationship ends, it’s often devastating, but by the time you’ve cried it out, the feeling of freedom and relief is invaluable. I bet that if anything, we’re about to see this woman blow up bigger than ever before.

Marry/Dump/Date: Lily Allen, Lady Gaga and Leona Lewis

The Brit Awards were last night in London and you may notice a common theme between its female attendees: They’re all dressed crazy. I thought that this would be a perfect time to play a game of Marry/Dump/Date (you may know it as F**k/Marry/Kill, but we don’t need to be that graphic.) It’s easy! Just take a look at Lily Allen, Lady Gaga and Leona Lewis in their crazy getups from last night and figure out in your head which one you’d marry, which one you’d dump and which one you’d like to date. Ladies can play this game just as well as men, so I thought I’d let you know that I’d totally marry Lily, date Gaga and then sadly, dump Leona. I’m telling ya, this game can be hard.

Leona Lewis, “I See You” Video (Avatar Theme)

I know I’m supposed to be really really excited about this movie, but I’m not. Sorry. The animation does look kind of cool, but if I wanted to see weird alien-looking people have sex I’d just track down the Kim Kardashian sex tape. The $230M James Cameron blockbuster hasn’t even been released in North America, but it’s leading in Golden Globes nods. Talk about hype!

I’m also unexcited about Leona Lewis’s music video for the theme song, “I See You.” I am unexcited about the cheap-ass special effects they used in her video after spending over $200 million animating this film. And I am least excited about the dress she is wearing, which I hope did not cost anyone more than $5.

Anyway. I know bunches of you want to see it, so here it is. Enjoy!

Uh, Beet? You May Want To Think About That “Successful Author” Goal

Holy shit!  Today, 2006 X Factor winner and singer Leona Lewis was in central London signing copies of her autobiography — how does she have a life story yet?  She’s 24! — when a man came up from the line and punched Lewis in the face.

The singer is okay and her assailant was apprehended and arrested at Waterstone’s bookstore.  No word yet on a motive, but the nation is astounded that no such similar assault has been committed against “author” Lauren Conrad.  Or “author” Paris Hilton.  Or “author” Nicole Richie.  Need I go on?

Hot Pic of the Day: Leona Lewis’s Free-Balling Friend

So we have these neat pictures of Leona Lewis going to the airport today, after getting head-butted or something by a horse last week. I dunno. I didn’t follow that story too closely, and I’m not sure if people were referring to an actual horse or if Leona just punched herself in the face. It’s a close species call with this girl. (I know, I know. She’s a very talented young woman. Your diatribes go in the comments.)

But the FUN part of these photos is that the friend who saw her off at the airport was wearing a teensy tiny loose skirt and no underwear, and she bent over to get something out of the car and gave the photogs got a STELLAR look at her tush. It’s actually quite an adorable little butt. Normally I would go easy on the friend-of-a-celeb, but what on earth would motivate someone to wear such a little dress out in public with no underwear DURING THE DAY? Seriously. You deserve to have consequences for that shiz.

That pic is after the jump. You may or may not want to view it at work, depending on what you do. It’s a butt.

Let’s Talk About the Dresses: Leona Lewis

This isn’t absolutely the worst she could have done, but I don’t think it was the right dress for her. It would have been fan-freakin-tastic on a Beyonce, but Leona’s breasts are small compared to her hips, and this dress just emphasizes that asymmetry. If it had been looser around the bottom, or if she had a larger top, it would be stellar, but I don’t think it’s particularly flattering on her body.

I also don’t think it’s the right color of nail polish for the dress and makeup.

Fun with YouTube: Leona Lewis, “Bleeding Love”

I’ve been listening to this song all week. It just gets stuck in my damn head, and I start to crave it. It is possible I have an addictive personality.

Leona Lewis won the most recent season of Britain’s Pop Idol, and this is her debut single.

Also: does anyone know where I can find a video of Liz Phair’s “H.W.C.”? I’m obsessing over that song lately, too, and I want to run it on here, but I can’t find a damn video with the song in it.
