The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show To Take Place In CHINA On Monday Is In Trouble ...

Posted on Fri Nov 17th, 2017 10:15am PDT       By X17 Staff


Scantily clad women in lingerie in China?! Well, that's the supposed venue for Victoria's Secret fashion show set for Monday but things aren't going well ...

Katy Perry, who was set to perform, has now been banned from China indefinitely, along with other VS top models including Gigi Hadid, according to Page Six. You'll never guess why Perry was denied a Visa by the communist nation ...

Back in 2015, Perry wore a sparkly sunflower-print costume for her concert in Taipei and that pissed off the Chinese government because, little did Katy know, the sunflower was a symbol adopted by anti-China protesters in Taiwan the year before. Obvi!

She had originally been granted a visa but Chinese officials, after combing through the singer's social media and other records, decided to rescind it.

As for the models, superstars like Gigi Hadid were found by Chinese government officials to have made offensive posts in the past so they're out, too. After Gigi's sister Bella posted an Instagram video back in February of her older sis holding a Buddha-shaped cookie and squinting her eyes, the Hadid sisters are BANNED! Adriana Lima's visa is also tenuous and other lesser-known models have been denied.

Harry Styles will replace Perry as the performing act of the night.

Question ... why the HELL did Victoria's Secret execs pick China to host their internationally-famous fashion show? Are their thongs made in China? Do they sell lots of Wonderbra's in the communist country? Probably all of the above!

 

EXCLUSIVE - Kim Kardashian Jets To New Orleans For Serena Williams' Wedding ... Sans Kanye ... And Flies Home The Same Day!

Posted on Fri Nov 17th, 2017 8:57am PDT       By X17 Staff


That was a quick trip! Kim Kardashian chartered a private jet for one, thank you, to head down to New Orleans for tennis superstar pal Serena Williams' wedding to Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian. Yep, she was solo -- hubby Kanye West stayed home and in fact, Kim attended the wedding, stayed for a bit of the reception, left early and hopped right back on the same jet and flew home!

The reality TV star/entrepreneur has a new business to baby ... oh, and she's got a baby on the way, too, of course -- her new fragrance line netted a whopping $10 million in it's first day after launching! That's nothing new for the Kardashians, Kim's just following in the footsteps of younger step-sis Kylie, who's makeup business is on track for a $1 billion valuation by early next year! And hey, if holiday sales go well, she may reach the mark before the end of 2017.

So Kim enjoyed Serena's festivities, along with other guests like Eva Longoria, Kelly Rowland, La La Anthony, Anna Wintour and more, and then jumped back on the plane around midnight, touching down in LA about three and a half hours later. What a party pooper!

And so back to Kanye's absence ... there may be more to it other than the rapper just being too busy to attend the wedding. In Touch Weekly claims the uber-famous couple's marriage is on the rocks and that they're headed for DIVORCE! Well we happen to have some of our own news about that ... coming soon ... but in the meantime, we can tell you the mag reports the couple goes for days at a time without talking -- Kanye loves to give Kim the silent treatment -- and that Kim's worried about their baby (via surrogate) coming right around the holidays and things get increasingly tense between her and Yeezy.

Stay tuned for more EXCLUSIVE info about Kim and Kanye's marital troubles, right here on X17online!

 

Ben Affleck Calls Handles The Sexual Misconduct Question Pretty Damn Well On Stephen Colbert's Late Show

Posted on Thu Nov 16th, 2017 9:58am PDT       By X17 Staff


Ben Affleck was forced to confront sexual harassment allegations against him by Late Show host Stephen Colbert and because the Justice League star is so well-spoken, he came across not looking like an ass.

After being accused by One Tree Hill actress Hilarie Burton of having groped her on the 2003 set of TRL, Affleck has had to go on the defensive, but without accepting some responsibility. Here's what he told Colbert:

    "I thought I had a sense of the scope of the problem and I thought I understood it and the truth is, I really didn’t. I didn’t understand what it’s like to be groped, harassed, to be interrupted, talked over, paid less, pushed around, belittled — all the things that women deal with that for me, as a man, I had the privilege of not having to deal with.”

    “Part of this, for me, has been listening to people that I care about and love as they tell me stories of stuff that’s happened to them (this is men and women) and realizing this is a real thing. I’m not a spokesperson, I’m not a superhero, I can’t change it by myself. I can just be accountable for myself and for my actions."

He went on to say he wants to be part of the solution:

    "What I was accused of by a woman was touching her breast while I gave her a hug. I don’t remember it but I absolutely apologize for it,” Affleck said Thursday. “I certainly don’t think she’s lying or making it up. It’s just the kind of thing we have to — as men, I think, as we become more aware of this — be really, really mindful of our behavior and hold ourselves accountable. And say, ‘If I was ever part of the problem, I want to change and be part of the solution.’ ”

    “I think the most important thing to do is support the voices coming forward, believe them, and create a business where more women are empowered and in place so less of this happens and so there is a way of reporting this stuff that people can feel safe doing."

 

Selena Supports Justin At His Hockey Match ... Again!

Posted on Thu Nov 16th, 2017 7:00am PDT       By X17 Staff


As their relationship heats up, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez put their romance on ICE! Selena went to support her man at his hockey match for a second time, Wednesday evening, as Justin grabbed his stick and hit the ice to play for his team, the Warriors, at an LA-area rink.

Selena brought along her pup Charles to help cheer on her Canuck cutie engaging in his country's national pastime.

Just as recent reports claim the two have chilled on their relationship, the amount of time they're still spending together seems to prove otherwise. The couple went on a day date Monday, taking a walk around a local park near Selena's house; they've been going to church together and then there are all the late-night visits to each other's house ... And most importantly, Biebs hasn't been seen with other girls! Now THAT's a change!

Rapper Lil Peep Dead At 21 Of Apparent Overdose

Posted on Thu Nov 16th, 2017 6:52am PDT       By X17 Staff


He definitely glorified drugs and now he's dead because of them ... Rapper Lil Peep was found dead on his tour bus Wednesday after an apparent overdose. Just a day earlier, he posted a photo of himself taking pills on Instagram and captioned it "fucc it."

Peep was a Soundcloud rapper who did a really weird thing and date Bella Thorne for a minute, back in September. His lyrics were emo, death-laden tracks about Benz's, wine and other random sh*t. Born Gustav Ahr, he was only 21 and had plenty of fans in the music world like Post Malone, who Tweeted this once he heard the news last night ...


Peep's first album Come Over When You're Sober (Part One) was just released in August.



Crazy how we can see people OD on Instagram, right? Will Kevin Systrom take down these videos? Should he???

EL PASO TX TONITE !!!! ITS ALIIIIIIVE!!!!

EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS - Check Out Kim Kardashian's Amazing Shrinking Booty

Posted on Thu Nov 16th, 2017 6:00am PDT       By X17 Staff


What the heck?! How does Kim's booty look so mamalicious when she's wearing sweats and picking up daughter Nori asleep on her shoulder ... and then the click strikes 7pm and all of a sudden mama's in a short, a tuxedo jacket with her favorite black Spandex shorts, legs looking lean and muscular and somehow the butt just looks ... normal?!

Well, folks, this is the miracle of Hollywood stylists! And while we've always wondered what the Kardashians did post-Monica Rose (let's face it, sweatsuits abound these days, so maybe they never replaced her), they still find a way to make the most of what they're working with. And what they're working with is usually juicy booties, skinny waists, wiiiiide hips and toned legs (well, Khloe and Kim anyway -- Kourtney didn't do the butt alleged injections, it appears).

So earlier Wednesday we had serious mom vibes and by nightfall, we had ... well let's just say we had particular feelings for Kim that we won't describe here. She looked HOT!!!

 

Now You See It; Now You Don't! Khloe Kardashian's Disappearing Baby Bump ...

Posted on Wed Nov 15th, 2017 1:59pm PDT       By X17 Staff


Hot DAMN! This girl just won't give it up!

Unlike our shots of Kylie, which seem to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that 20-year-old is with child, Khloe Kardashian keeps us guessing!

The denim maven posted a shot from her latest campaign, wearing nothing but an oversized tee adorned with silver lame stars. The billowy shirt is poofed in all the right places and there certainly could be a baby bump under there.

But after that, Kim Snapchatted some shots of her and Khloe at her KKW Fragrance launch party and check out Khlo's body! She's wearing super-slimming Spandex shorts with an oversized boyfriend blazer and ankle boots and we'll be damned if we can tell if she's pregnant or not! What gives, KK?! Just tells us already!

 

Justin And Selena Are Still Going Strong!

Posted on Wed Nov 15th, 2017 1:51pm PDT       By X17 Staff


Fear not, Jelena fans ... Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are still going strong!

A Belieber caught up with the couple at Lake Balboa in the San Fernando Valley on Monday, talking a literal walk in the park. Seems their rekindled relationship may be, in fact, a walk in the park -- as they seem to have fallen fast for each other again, slipping right back into their comfortable ways with each other. And we're fine with that! Look at how CUTE they are together!!!
