Time to celebrate Brits in all their glory with the 2014 Brit Awards. Let’s see which (mostly English) celebs wore what and wonder why. Then, single out some for BEST, WORST, and most WTF look of the night. (For more British fashion goodness, check out this BAFTA Awards fashion post.)

Did everyone eat a shit ton of food yesterday? Are you getting amped up for leftovers today? Well, celebs had their feasts yesterday too, with some looking a bit better than others’. Of course, MUCH of this food was catered and you can tell. Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner tried to pretend they had home cooking, but their Instagram followers weren’t fooled and called them out on having chefs/caterers for the big day, LOL. Justin Bieber‘s dinner looked like the most un-fun thing ever. Just looking at these is making me hungry.

I generally love Nicole Scherzinger – she’s crazier than a shit house rat in the best way possible. Have you watched her on The X Factor UK? She’s hilarious and actually pretty sweet. However, I cannot co-sign this bullshit. Posting on her Instagram page, Nicole tried twerking on for size with the following caption:
“#teamtwerkcakes came out to play! Heeey, Team twerk caaakes! #paddleboardtwerking #goofballz.”
Twerking has got to go. It needs to disappear into a land far, far away, never to be used again by celebrities or regular people because it’s become that much of a disastrous epidemic and I can’t bear it anymore.
Also, she must be on vacation right now until the live shows start, because there sure as hell isn’t anywhere in the UK to be wearing a bikini at this time of year. It’s hoodie time, already! Waiting for that to be the case on the east coast, as well – I’m done with summer!

Despite the fact that no one really gives a shit, Nicole Scherzinger has felt the need to let the world know that she’s really not into Twitter. She’s always on it (and Instagram, for that matter), but she doesn’t like it. This is like that annoying kid you went to college with who insisted on proclaiming how lame Facebook is while checking it about 80 times a day. That being said, she’s nuts and I love her for it.
From Live (via Now):
“I’m way better in person than I am on things like Twitter. I know Twitter is the best and fastest way to connect with fans who really appreciate you, but I’m still not cool with it – although I am trying!”
“I try my best but I’m a one-on-one person and I don’t want to tell people I’m on the toilet or I just brushed my teeth. To be honest, I miss the old Hollywood way of having some mystique about the star.”
Obviously Twitter is annoying – we all know it, but lots of us still use it (some better than others). I just think it’s hilarious that she felt the need to talk about it. Next she’ll be saying she hates TV.
Speaking of TV, Nicole took part in Andrew Lloyd Webber: 40 Musical Years, a televised special in the UK which featured lots of English stars from the West End and beyond performing some of his greatest pieces of music. Admittedly, I’m always sort of surprised how legitimately talented the former Pussycat Dolls singer is, but goddamn if she didn’t blow ‘Don’t Cry For Me, Argentina’ from Evita out of the water. She did better than 99% of the actual stage actors! Can’t hate on this:

Nicole Scherzinger is absolutely insane, and I mean that in the best possible way. Anyone who’s watched her on The X Factor (US or UK) knows that she comes out with some of the most colourful, hilarious shit I’ve ever heard in my life. Pretty much everyone knows who she is a bit – well, at least if you start singing The Pussycat Dolls’ ‘Don’t Cha’, anyway – but she’s definitely not a mega star. The reason why? Well, according to the lady herself, she’s not a big enough slut.
From The Independent:
She says that it took years for her to come out of her shell, to feel comfortable in her own skin, and in the perpetual spotlight. Yet she is perfectly happy in her bra and pants these days, and you could say that she now almost aggressively courts an overly sexualised image. Conclusive proof of that came with her 2011 solo album Killer Love, which featured a duet with 50 Cent called “Right There” that dispensed with double entendres entirely in favour of blunt single ones. “I like the way that you keep me coming,” she sang. “So good you had me running/ Me like the way that he goin’ down down down down down uh.”
Intriguingly, she delivered all this in so blatant a cod-Barbadian accent that it was difficult to tell whether she was aping Barbados-born Rihanna, one of her main competitors, or mocking her. Which was it?
“Well, um… you know.” She laughs, the sliver of a giggle, then seamlessly changes tack. “With these kind of songs, I don’t feel I have to justify myself to anyone. I come from the most religious family – my grandfather is a priest – and if they support me in all this, and they do, then I’m OK. I’m being sassy and classy; I’m having fun. I’m not coming from a dark place. To be honest with you, I sometimes wish I were more slutty. I’d probably be a lot more successful if I were.”
I’ve got a big problem with slut shaming, especially when it comes from a fellow woman, though I think she was using the term in a more colloquial sense and not actually saying that women who are a bit more overtly sexualised are sluts. Then again, if you listen to the lyrics of her songs, she doesn’t have much room to talk – ‘Right There’ is about f-cking, ‘Don’t Cha’ is about f-cking… need I go on?
At the end of the day, I don’t think Nicole’s lack of worldwide domination has that much to do with her unwillingness to get her ass out and more to do with her weirdness. Being a bad-ass is fine, being “quirky” is passable, but being outright strange is sort of not really embraced widely, which is a shame, because I do think she’s great. What do we think – did Nicole ever have a chance at Lady GaGa status?

So, in reality, the two were together to host the Black Pyramid Party at Supperclub in Los Angeles, but if you look through the photos in the gallery, the two look … well, they look pretty darn cozy, if you ask me. Which doesn’t make any sense, because Nicole Scherzinger seems like a reasonable girl (I guess?), and it’s beyond me that any reasonable-like girl would consider kissing, snuggling, or otherwise being within six feet of Chris Brown voluntarily.
Chris, as you guys all know, is “dating” Karreuche Tran, and Nicole, well, she’s got her own boyfriend, too—racecar driver Lewis Hamilton, both of which were nowhere to be seen at the festivities. As for Rihanna? Well, she was nowhere to be found, either. I’d imagine she was off somewhere, drowning her sorrows in a bottle of whiskey or the like, and lamenting the continual loss of Chris Brown. For whatever psychotic, obsessed reason she happens to have this week, at any rate.
Anyway, Nicole has—naturally—made a statement about how she did not make out with Chris Brown. Nicole’s rep says:
“There is absolutely no truth to the ridiculous story … The photos that have surfaced are old friends who were trying to talk at a very loud club. I guarantee there will be no photos of them kissing.”
Ugh, sure. OK.
