Let the most pop-tastic summer of our lives begin!!!
Icona Pop just announced the dates and cities for their North American summer tour and, predictably, we love it! (We love it!)
The Swedish DJ-ing duo’s spunky, electro-pop single I Love It broke through to the mainstream in a big way these past few months and we couldn’t be more proud of their successes!
In fact, the hit song already sold more than 1.3 million copies!!
After seeing their fantastically FIERCE live performances on American TV, we’re all totes desperate to watch these dashing dames make marvelous music in person!!
See all the stops of The Iconic Tour…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

On The View this morning, BarbaraWaltersannounced that she will retire from television nextsummer and she’ll never appear on a show full-time again, because she’ll be too busy chasing virgins through the woods with Larry King. Now who’s going to ask bitches what kind of tree they are? Now who’s going to interrupt the other co-hosts on The View? Now who’s going to tell us that Snooki is the most fascinating person of the year? Now who’s going to get names wrong and lisp out some nonsensical crazy shit? Don’t say Elisabeth Hasselcrack, because apparently she’s leaving The View too.
“I have been on television continuously for over 50 years, but in the summer of 2014, a year from now, I plan to retire from appearing on television at all — it has been an absolutely joyful, rewarding, challenging, fascinating and occasionally bumpy ride. I wouldn’t change a thing. I’m perfectly healthy, this is my decision, and I have been thinking about it for a long time. This is what i want to do. I will, however, continue as co-executive producer of The View with Bill Getty as long as the program is here. There will be special occasions that I will come back — I’m not walking into the sunset, but I don’t want to appear on another program, I don’t want to climb another mountain. I want instead to sit on a very sunny field and admire other women who will be taking my place and most of all, I want to thank everybody here. I’ve had an amazing career beyond anything I could ever imagined. And I hope I may inspire other women to make television. I smile when some young women say I grew up watching you on TV — it’s their time now. But remember, I have a whole year to go. We have exciting things planned for ABC News and The View and most of all, I want to say hi to all of you who have been watching me for so many years and you have traveled the same road that I have. I thank you, thank you, thank you.”
And Henry Kissinger better watch out, because Barbara now has the time to bone his glasses off. Break out the Astroglide!
We think it’s about time we acknowledged Taylor Swift as not just a country cutie, but a REAL ESTATE QUEEN!
Remember a few weeks back, when the young songstress was spotted touring a MASSIVERhodeIsland mansion being sold for upwards of million known as the Harkness House?
Well, our T-Swizzle has gone ahead and purchased the 5.23-acre, 11,000-square-foot property…and for LESS than the asking price, at .75 million!
According to sources, gurlfriend is wasting no time, as of yesterday morning, she has already wired the money over and movers are already on the scene and hard at work!
And we can’t say we blame her! The place is absolutely STUNNING!
Apparently, this summer, Taylor will be enjoying the oceanfront estate’s 8 bedrooms, 700 feet of shoreline overlooking Block Island and Montauk Point, a Pebble Tec outdoor pool…complete with a pool house/fitness center!
I love it when a dude in a v-neck says everything with a downward side-eye so I don’t have to.
LindsayLohanis going to start drying out on May 1st and since TMZ knows every detail of every single part of her life, they know where she’s going to rehab. They say that even though LiLo’s tiny little lawyer Mark Heller is telling the media that she hasn’t made a decision about where she’s going to rehab, she has made a decision and she’s checking into the Seafield Center in Westhampton Beach, NY.
TMZ says that lockdown rehab for non-criminals only exists in the fairy land in Mark Heller’s mind, but the Seafield Center is sort of close to being a lockdown rehab. Seafield has cameras everywhere and there’s staff always at the front door, so if she leaves, they can’t stop her, but they will call the police. Leaving rehab will violate her sentence and she’ll be thrown in jail immediately (uh huh). Prosecutors apparently signed off on the place and are okay with it.
The Seafield Center’s max program is 28 days long, but the center’s administrator put together a special 90-day program just for LiLo. LiLo’s total stay will cost her over k and she isn’t allowed to smoke cigs, use a cell phone or dress slutty. I’m surprised the last one wasn’t a deal breaker for her.
The chances of me not crying in my bed while hugging an empty bag of Mother’s Circus Animal Cookies at least one time this week are greater than Lindsay Lohan actually spending all 90 days in that place. Bitch is going to break out of there 5 minutes after checking in. But I don’t know why she would want to leave. Spending 3 months in a luxurious spa in the Hamptons sounds like a prize you’d get on The Price is Right. What Lindsay Lohan should do is get one of us is to put on a water-damaged leather orange mask and a ginger wig and pretend to be her while we hang out in a luxurious resort for 90 days! Then she can put on an Amanda Bynes mask and continue to be a mess all through NYC. It’s a plan!
And in other LiLo news, Radar says that LiLo’s friend Claus Hjelmbak planned to stage an intervention on her and he asked Liza Minnelli to help him. Liza’s rep confirmed that he asked her and said that she couldn’t do it, because she was on tour in South America. I don’t know if Liza would’ve helped, but at least she would’ve busted out a whole lot of jazz hands and high kicks and made it the best intervention ever.
And let us remind you that the American Idol alum has actually PERFORMED on VH1 Divas Live…THRICE!
Regardless, it appears that shoving her into the “special guest” category in all of the concerts’ promotional materials wasn’t enough for the Maroon 5 frontman and Voice coach, as it apparently costs a whopping 0 for fans to secure themselves a VIP package to the show!
And even then, you STILL don’t get to meet the band!
Ch-ch-check out the full list of perks…which we’re not even sure is WORTH the cost (below)!
And according to sources, we’re definitely not alone in that sentiment…because not one night of the VIP packages has even come CLOSE to selling out!
Might want to think about making an appearance for all the people willing to spend their HARD-EARNED MONEY to come out and see you guys!
If you’re wondering where the peeps at VogueAustralia got all the pretty flowers for their February issue, remember that it’s currently summer down under.
But, of course, the prettiest flower of all is the wondrous Naomi Watts who graces the cover in a ruffly emerald Gucci dress.
We feel like we’re in a garden!
The 44-year-old is absolutely enchanting in all of the fresh, summery looks, including a mauve Azzedine Alaia gown, a light pink Nina Ricci fringed dress, and a soft gray Rochas accordion pleated skirt with short sleeved sweater.
The entire spread makes us want to go skipping around in the nearest field of flowers!
Check out all the prettiness in our garden of a gallery (below)!
