Minaj: I demand a climax

Nicki Minaj thinks women “should demand” the ultimate satisfaction when it comes to sex.

The 32-year-old is known for her sharp lyrics and strong sense of style. But in a new interview with the American edition of Cosmopolitan, it seems the Anaconda singer is ferocious in the bedroom too.

“I demand that I climax. I think women should demand that,” she told the publication. “I have a friend who’s never had an orgasm in her life. In her life! That hurts my heart. It’s cuckoo to me. We always have orgasm interventions where we, like, show her how to do stuff. We’ll straddle each other, saying, ‘You gotta get on him like that and do it like this.’ She says she’s a pleaser. I’m a pleaser, but it’s 50/50.”

Clearly Nicki likes to get what she wants from her man, and in the near future that will be children if she continues to have her way. While rumors have circulated recently she is engaged to rapper Meek Mill, the star has made no secret of wanting to have a family.

“Ten years from now, I will have two children, unless my husband wants three,” she explained. “I will be into my fitness a lot more, I will stop yo-yo dieting, and I’ll be a housewife with careers that I can run from home.”

In fact, despite her many awards and accolades, Nicki wants nothing more than to be a stay-at-home parent.

“I want to be able to cook for my children, bake cookies for them, and watch them grow up. I just want to be Mommy,” she added. “Take them to school, go to the parent-teacher conference, help them with their homework, and put their work on the refrigerator.”

Rutherford’s custody case ‘hits snag’

Kelly Rutherford’s custody case has experienced a critical snag.

The Gossip Girl star has been fighting a legal battle since 2012, when Hermés, eight, and Helena, five, went to live with their father Daniel Giersch in Monaco.

Last Friday a California judge granted temporary custody of the children to Rutherford, ordering their swift return to Los Angeles.

However, according to the New York Daily News, another judge has halted last week’s order because the United States does not hold jurisdiction over the case.

TMZ reports Monaco has full command over what happens with the children.

“Giersch’s attorneys argued that Rutherford’s legal team tried to pull a fast one by filing for custody in California on the Friday before the Memorial Day holiday [on Monday May 25] … when they knew Monaco already had the authority to rule,” the website writes.

TMZ claims the legal snag will be sorted out over the phone between the judge in California and the magistrate in Monaco during a conference they’ve scheduled with one another, which takes place on June 11.

Kelly has literally gone bankrupt over this litigious drama, as she was granted insolvency in 2013.

Back in 2012, a California judge ruled that Hermés and Helena should live with their father, as his US visa had been revoked due to allegations regarding his company. The decision was made even though he and Kelly shared joint custody.

The 46-year-old filed for divorce from the businessman towards the end of 2008, when she was pregnant with Helena.

Iggy Azalea cancels tour

Iggy Azalea has canceled her The Great Escape Tour.

The 24-year-old Black Widow rapper was scheduled to commence her second headlining concert series this fall.

But The Great Escape Tour will not be happening and fans were notified of its cancellation via email on Friday.

“The Iggy Azalea Great Escape Tour scheduled for this fall has been cancelled and refunds are available at point of purchase,” the email statement reads. “There will be a new tour planned around Iggy‘s new record to be released in 2016 and we apologize for any inconvenience.”

Back in March Iggy’s record label Def Jam announced The Great Escape Tour, which was originally supposed to launch this spring, had been rescheduled to kick off in the fall.

Around the same time as her postponement announcement, Iggy discussed the reason behind the delay.

“It is bumped back because I am a psychopath,” she revealed during an interview with AMP 97.1 radio station. “It’s my first arena tour so it’s a big undertaking and I’m doing a lot of the creative direction… we’re doing a custom stage and custom build… when you’re building a stage and things like that, you do it about six months in advance.”

Iggy also noted she and her production crew hadn’t even started work on some crucial elements of the show.

“My tour would’ve been April, we have not started building,” she explained. “That is not six months, that is very tight, and so to get this stage kind of done in time I would be making a lot of sacrifices and cuts and changes and compromises would have to be made to get this thing done in time. So I really considered what do I want to do: keep and honor the tickets and this date for fans but not the show I’d envisioned or kind of promised them, a lesser version of it with maybe not so many people like jumping out of the ceilings and flying all over the place, or do I want to move it and have the absolute best show, the show that I envisioned, and obviously I’ve chosen to move it.”

Dwayne Johnson: I’m Charlize’s sky-high savior!

Dwayne Johnson has recalled the “classic moment” Charlize Theron shouted for him to save her.

The 43-year-old former wrestler is known for his imposing stature and performances in action packed movies including the Fast and the Furious franchise and Hercules. And during a celebrity-filled flight back from CinemaCon in Las Vegas in April, his strength was almost called upon when the airplane hit turbulence.

“It was a classic moment. It was turbulence from hell. Then [Charlize] said at the top of her lungs, ‘We can’t go down. The Rock’s on the plane. You’re going to save us,’” he told USA Today. “I told her, ‘You’re in safe hands.’ ”

Dwayne was on board after promoting his new disaster movie San Andreas, while Charlize had been at the event to talk about her latest flick, Mad Max: Fury Road. Also on the jet was the cast of Entourage; Kevin Dillon, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly and Jerry Ferrara as well as Dwayne’s San Andreas co-star Carla Gugino.

While the 43-year-old actress isn’t sure the man formerly known as The Rock could have pulled the plane out of serious trouble, the interaction between him and Charlize provided some much needed light relief during the storm.

“It was a very comforting thought to all of us,” she said. “You’re happy to be anywhere with that dude. You know you’re in very capable hands.”

However for Dwayne, if he had his pick of which celebrity he would have by his side during a natural disaster like the one in his film, he surprisingly plumped for Oprah Winfrey.

“There’s got to be Oprah, too,” he laughed. “Then afterward, we can talk through our emotional injuries.”

Adam Lambert: I wouldn’t run from love

Adam Lambert believes he “wouldn’t run away” from a relationship.

The For Your Entertainment singer dated Finnish entertainment reporter Sauli Koskinen from November 2010 until April 2013. Following their split, Adam has remained single, and while he doesn’t see that changing any time soon, he isn’t purposefully avoiding romance.

“If love found me, I wouldn’t run away from it, but I don’t know,” he told MTV News. “I think I’m dating my album right now… yeah, the Original High is my lover.”

The 33-year-old has been ploughing all of his energy into his third record in recent months. The singer hopes that lead single Ghost Town represents a feeling everyone can relate to.

“It’s that feeling that might come over you, maybe after a breakup, when you’ve had your heart stomped on a little bit, and you’re feeling a little lost, and a little lonely, and you’re questioning kind of everything, and your beliefs, and faith in the universe, and then someone puts on a real sick house beat and you’re fine,” he explained.

In fact the whole of Original High was created with realistic experiences that Adam thinks will be really relatable for his fans.

“I think in the past I was playing around with more theatrical, kind of over the top, kind of kitschy, campy, type material, but on this album, I wanted to do something a little more real, a little more grounded, a little bit more honest, and kind of serious,” he revealed. “It was really important for me to write about stuff that I had experienced, things that were through my point of view but at the same time, the topics on the album are things that I think everybody goes through no matter who you are.”

Jaime King: Women can be strong together

Jaime King thinks women can be strong together “without competition between us”.

The 36-year-old actress and model is close friends with Taylor Swift and has asked her to be the godmother to her unborn baby. Jaime thinks it’s extremely important for women to support each other, and she explained her reasons in her first ever column for the American edition of Elle.

“The experiences I’ve learned by having very strong women around me—women like Lena Dunham, Taylor Swift, and Jessica Alba—is that there can be a group of strong, creative women without competition between us,” she said. “The thing that solidifies us is this idea that, no matter what, we will always support each other. People find that fascinating about our friendships, like it’s some sort of odd thing. And it really shouldn’t be.”

Jaime can speak from experience about what it’s like to be in competition with your own sex. Growing up in Omaha, Nebraska, the star felt like an outcast no matter what she did to try and fit in.

“I was pretty, and I looked a certain way, but I didn’t have the money and I didn’t have the address,” she recalled. “You had to be a cheerleader or a jock at the school that I went to, and I remember the feeling at that point, like, ‘Oh, okay. What do I do? Maybe if I change the way that I am, if I try to be more like my sister….’ My sister was very popular and she was accepted.”

Jaime started to do her hair and make-up like her sibling as well as stealing her clothes. But instead of replicating her sister’s success at school, it had the reverse effect.

“And then, the interesting thing is, it got worse. People said I was a poser, that I was trying to be something I wasn’t. I didn’t understand,” she continued. “If I’m not acceptable how I am and I’m not acceptable when I fit into what you look like, then how am I ever going to be acceptable to you?”

Ellen ‘considering talk show future’

Ellen DeGeneres reportedly has her staff “freaking out” about her potentially not returning to her show.

The 57-year-old star has been hosting her famous talk show since 2003, and it’s one of the most popular on TV.

While she still manages to land top guests and has been lauded for her ability to put fellow A-listers at ease, it appears Ellen may be ready to give her small screen hit up.

Radar Online reports that the bubbly TV personality is unsure about her signing a new deal.

“Ellen’s contract is up in 2017 and she has told her staff that she does not know if she is going to renew it,” an insider said. “Everyone on the staff is just freaking out over this.”

It’s thought this decision is also to do with Ellen’s wife Portia de Rossi, as the couple reportedly want to strengthen their marriage as time goes on.

If she were to leave her show behind it’s not like Ellen would be strapped for cash; she’s said to be worth around $200 million and recently made Forbes’ 2015 list of The World’s Most Powerful Women. She came in at number 50, ahead of the likes of Sofía Vergara, Angelina Jolie and Taylor Swift.

“Ellen does not need to do the show anymore because she has more money than God,” the source added to Radar.

When she isn’t busy filming Ellen keeps her fans amused by regular commentary online. With over 40 million followers on Twitter she makes sure to lift all their spirits with humorous and poignant posts.

Recently she shared her delight at Ireland voting for gay marriage to be legalized.

“Ireland did it! The 1st country to legalize marriage equality by popular vote, but they won’t be the last! What an incredible accomplishment (sic)” she gushed.

Jack Antonoff’s clothes confusion

Jack Antonoff likes it when his clothes don’t make sense.

Jack is known for his cool indie style, rocking thick black-rimmed glasses and quirky wardrobe ensembles.

Unlike his girlfriend Lena Dunham, who is regularly seen in a state of undress on her hit show Girls, Jack likes to have fun with his clothes on.

“I have the most fun when I feel like a kid who’s allowed to get dressed for school the first time by himself. I just throw on a bunch of things that don’t make sense together,” Jack smiled to American Esquire.

As well as chatting to the men’s glossy, Jack also took part in Esquire’s Sidewalk Sessions; where musicians play for charities of their choosing.

The 31-year-old musician took to the streets of Austin to benefit The Ally Coalition, an organization that works with entertainers and their fans to raise awareness, action and funds in support of LGBTQ equality.

“The most important thing is making music that really matters. I think people are so much smarter than they get credit for,” Jack said of being able to cut through the noise. “Masses of people are stupid, but individual people are smart.

“Game of Thrones is one of the greatest shows of all time. House of Cards is incredibly creative, well-written, and exciting. It’s not like the conversation is about Dancing with the Stars, although a lot of people watch it. The actual conversation that permeates culture is about good stuff. So the first step always has to be doing something really good.”

Jason Derulo: MC Hammer was my idol

Jason Derulo initially modeled his career on MC Hammer.

The 25-year-old singer has become a big name in R&B thanks to his tracks including Wiggle and Talk Dirty, but things could have been very different. When he first considered breaking into music, it was the U Can’t Touch This rapper who he looked up to.

“That MC Hammer was one of the first people I tried to emulate in my career,” Jason told British magazine Heat, when asked to admit something he’d previously kept secret. “I was such a big fan. I didn’t have the MC Hammer trousers, though. Watching him on stage is crazy.”

The star’s latest record is called Everything Is 4 and includes the lead single Want to Want Me. He’s very proud of the offering, not least because he’s done so much work on it. In fact, his addiction to the studio is something Jason sometimes worries about.

“I work all the time. Everyone should have a dial that you can switch off. I’m always thinking about music. I watch TV box sets when I’m travelling to try to relax. I love Scandal and Game of Thrones,” he explained.

All that work means some other areas of Jason’s life have suffered. Although he enjoys eating he isn’t up to much in the kitchen, which is why he tends to get others to make him food.

“I’m not very good at cooking. I don’t even try any more. I just eat out as much as I can. I can cook eggs, so I’m always OK at breakfast, it’s just all the other meals,” he explained.

“If I could eat one food for the rest of my life… I could never do that! If I had to choose, maybe pasta with white sauce. Everyone can make that. There would always be someone to cook it for me.”

Azealia Banks: I’m no second-rate Rihanna

Azealia Banks was tired of being “Rihanna’s understudy”.

The 23-year-old rapper finally released her debut record Broke with Expensive Taste earlier this year after first having the title and tracks ready way back in 2012. It was dropping her record label Universal and taking matters into her own hands that got the ball rolling, with Azealia having no regrets.

“Yes! I was so ready to drop this bomb. I was ready for it to drop and f**k everyone’s heads and speakers up,” she gushed to ASOS magazine. “I had to [make the album] my way. I didn’t want to be singing anyone’s leftovers. I didn’t want to be Rihanna’s understudy.”

On the topic of her favorite artists at the moment, Azealia named three feisty females: Lana Del Rey, Taylor Swift and Meghan Trainor.

As well as her music the star is known for her online antics – she’s extremely open with her thoughts and opinions on Twitter, which often gets her in trouble. But it isn’t all feuds on the social networking site as she also checks in on her fans and their amusing conversations, which she says are always about sex.

When she isn’t busy promoting her songs, Azealia sets aside time for the other important figures in her life – her pets.

“I’ve got a havapoo [half Havanese, half poodle] called Tuxedo. His name was Cappuccino but I changed it,” she explained. “I used to have two dogs, Chicken and Pepper, but when I went on tour I gave them to my sister to look after and she just won’t give them back. That’s why I got Tuxedo.”
