Kesha Says She Almost Starved Herself Over Alleged Insults From Dr. Luke

Posted on Wed Oct 26th, 2016 12:30pm PDT       By X17 Staff

She's got a lot to say.

Kesha opens up about her widely publicized sexual assault lawsuit against Dr. Luke in a new tell-all interview with the New York Times, and it sounds like she wants everyone to know that even though she ended up dropping it, she was still very much abused by the producer. In fact, his insults about her weight drove her to almost starve herself to death!

The "Tik Tok" songstress explained that when she first began to collaborate with Dr. Luke, he backed her into a corner with her image.

"Something that was always told to me is: ‘You’re fun. We’re going to capitalize on that,' I was like, ‘I am fun, but I’m a lot of other things.’ But Luke’s like: ‘No, you’re fun. That’s all you are for your first record,'" she recounted. "To this day, I’ve never released a single that’s a true ballad, and I feel like those are the songs that balance out the perception of you, because you can be a fun girl. You can go and have a crazy night out, but you also, as a human being, have vulnerable emotions. You have love," she added.

Once she found fame, that's when Dr. Luke began to attack her weight and give her massive body image issues, including the eating disorder she sought treatment for shortly before filing her lawsuit in October 2014. She claims that he belittled her in front of people and called her a "fat refrigerator."

"I was under immense pressure to starve myself. And I tried to and almost killed myself in the process.. As you grow up and you grow awareness, some say ignorance is bliss, and in some ways, it is, but once you realize and you gain knowledge, it’s there, and you can’t deny it. And now I’m very much aware of things that I wasn’t before, and it keeps me more accountable for my actions. I was taking back my strength, and I was taking back my voice, and taking back my power, taking back my body. I’m just taking back my [expletive] life," she fumed.

As far as making new music goes, the chart topper revealed that she made 22 songs over the summer and submitted them to Sony, but they have yet to be released due to pending contract litigation.

What a nightmare! Free Kesha, we want new tunes!

Lady Gaga rocked the car in the newest and best "Carpool Karaoke" yet! The big-voiced singer hitched a ride with James Corden on the beloved segment of The Late Late Show and it was a glittering and fabulous time!

The 30-year-old superstar destroyed when she belted out "Perfect Illusion," “Poker Face," “Bad Romance" and many more. Mother Monster was so show-stopping that at times the British host forgot to sing along!

Corden switched it up in in the segment, wearing a few hilarious Gaga-inspired ensembles during the drive. The funny man was clearly so starstruck he even let Gaga take the driver's seat! That's a first!

Katy Perry Celebrates Her Birthday By Voting For Hillary And Catching A Kanye Concert

Posted on Wed Oct 26th, 2016 10:40am PDT       By X17 Staff

Not a bad way to spend your special day!

Katy Perry turned 32-years-old yesterday, and the pop princess marked the occasion by hitting the polls to vote for Hillary Clinton before taking in Kanye West's concert at The Forum. Another highlight? Her bacon and donut cake!

Interestingly enough, boyfriend Orlando Bloom was noticeably absent for the whole thing, and we know that because she Snapchatted from beginning to end. Hmm? That makes us even more curious about her "run-in" with ex John Mayer at Drake's birthday party days earlier. The former couple, along with their shared nemesis Taylor Swift, hit the rapper's fete in West Hollywood on Sunday, and didn't exactly ignore each other.

"Katy and John chatted, but Taylor avoided both of them. The tension was so thick, you could cut it with a knife," a source dished to Page Six about their interaction inside the bash.

Other than a possible breakup, KP's birthday seemed like perfection!


Bella Hadid Drops Her Pants, Becomes Victoria's Secret Model

Posted on Wed Oct 26th, 2016 9:52am PDT       By X17 Staff

Victoria's Secret has a newest Angel: Bella Hadid!

On Tuesday, the model learned that she had made the final cut at VS and learned she'd be one of the Angels heading to Paris for the Victoria's Secret Fashion show. Jen Waldman, a staffer for the lingerie company, announced the big news via Instagram yesterday, revealing that the 20-year-old model had "made the fashion show cut."

Earlier in the day, Bella was spotted leaving the Victoria’s Secret headquarters in New York City, smiling wide after hearing she'd made it. For the call, Bella wore a very sexy outfit which of a bra, underneath a black bomber, baggy camo pants and lace-up heels.

It looks like those pants didn't stay on for long during the meeting. Makeup artist Vincent Oquendo posted a revealing shot later that day of Bella taking a selfie in just her bra and underwear -- and her pants piled at her ankles. We can see why they picked her -- look at that bod'!

The makeup man wrote, “Congrats my little baby bells on getting @victoriassecret ! It’s been a beautiful ride so far and I can’t wait to see what’s next! #proud #blessed#worlddomination @diormakeup.“

The highly anticipated show airs December 5 on CBS.

The sexy songstress and the Seattle Seahawks quarterback tied the knot on July 6 in England. The lovebirds took a vow of celibacy at the beginning of their relationship and kept it until the night of their wedding. The "Love Sex Magic" chanteuse has a 2-year-old son with ex-husband Future.

They really got down to business after becoming Mr. and Mrs.!


Details On Angelina Jolie's Four-Hour Interview With The FBI

Posted on Wed Oct 26th, 2016 8:41am PDT       By X17 Staff

This is pretty serious stuff!

Angelina Jolie sat down with the FBI at her temporary Malibu home last Tuesday, October 18, and answered questions for four hours about the September 14 private jet incident in which Brad Pitt drank and allegedly made physical contact with son Maddox, reports Us Weekly.

Two agents spoke to Jolie and some of her six children about the marriage-destroying event, according to the report. An insider said, “The agents wanted a breakdown of everything that happened from when the plane took off to when it landed."

“They’re looking into charges of assault,” added the source. According to another source, Jolie, who filed for divorce days later, “fully cooperated."

Meanwhile, it was previously reported that Pitt's child abuse investigation would likely be dropped and that Jolie wasn't going to help authorities, but now Us Weekly is reporting the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services has extended their investigation of the 52-year-old actor.

"It’s normal [for the DCFS] to extend past the deadline to complete their work when an agreement exists between the parties,” a source tells the mag. Still, investigators will be looking into whether there are any other incidents or behavioral patterns that may indicate a history of abuse. “They are looking at not only the original incident but other possible incidents surrounding it and more history," the source said.

It was reported that Pitt didn't hit his son during the incident, but that there was "contact" made. Maddox refused to attend a monitored visit with Pitt last week, while his other siblings, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne opted to go. However, a few days later, the two finally met up, at a therapist's office.

The original protective order was put in place until October 20, and that has been extended, pending the investigation.


EXCLUSIVE FIRST PIX! - Kim Kardashian Finally Comes Out Of Hiding After Paris Robbery

Posted on Wed Oct 26th, 2016 5:45am PDT       By X17 Staff

Kim Kardashian WAS at hubby Kanye West's concert at the Forum in Inglewood on Tuesday night after all! The starlet sat in the front seat of a chauffeured Mercedes while Kanye sat in the back, and she wore all black with her hair down. She seemed calm and happy, and at one point Kanye rolled down the window and we got a peek at his face. Interestingly enough, we didn't see Kim with her sisters Kourtney or Kendall at the show -- or mom Kris Jenner.

This marks the first time Kim has made a public appearance since being robbed at gunpoint in Paris earlier this month. The only other times we've seen her are when she flew to NYC the day after the robbery, and when she returned to LA a few days later with daughter Nori and son Saint. That was over two weeks ago, and while she seems to be recovering, it sounds like she's taking a whole new approach when it comes to her lifestyle.

"It's not just a matter of security," a source tells X17online. "Kim's really re-evaluating what she's doing day to day, and how much she's sharing on her social channels. She doesn't want anything like this to ever happen again, and she does feel somewhat responsible for it. At this point she wants to move on, but very cautiously."

We're curious to see what the selfie queen has in store!


Bra-Less Kourtney Kardashian Steals The Show At Kanye West's LA Concert

Posted on Tue Oct 25th, 2016 10:06pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Kim Kardashian might not have made a grand entrance at hubby Kanye West's concert at the Forum in Inglewood on Tuesday night, but no one seemed to be paying much attention to that. You see, Kourtney Kardashian showed up in a see-through lace top minus a bra, and little sister Kendall Jenner turned heads in a pair of very short shorts. So much going on here! Kris Jenner and beau Corey Gamble were there as well, along with sometime family pal Kaia Gerber and Amy Schumer. Interesting mix...

It's now been nearly three weeks since Kim was last seen in public -- and it doesn't seem like she's going to be coming out of hiding anytime soon. After she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris earlier this month, sources said she was planning on taking a month off from appearances, so we're curious as to when she'll finally step back into the spotlight.

Meanwhile, Kourt's pal Jaden Smith made an interesting style statement -- jeans with "OCD" etched in them, a floral scarf and a golden grill. Will and Jada's eccentric son made sure to show off those pricey chompers as he headed into the concert. Whatever floats your boat, kiddo.
