Kate Hudson Says She Can't Afford To Buy Red Carpet Designer Gowns
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Kate Hudson might be a superstar actress from an A-list Hollywood family and engaged to a successful rock star, but she says she "can't afford" to buy the red carpet designer dresses she wears to Tinseltown events. “People think we own all these dresses,” Hudson told Harper's Bazaar for the magazine's December issue, “but we borrow them! I can’t afford to buy that stuff. There are certain things I splurge on, but it’s very rare, especially when you have two kids and school tuition. I’m not a big high-end fashion shopper. I wish I could but the truth is things are just so expensive. Before Isabel Marant was a million dollars and famous, I used to go to her store in Paris and go crazy, it was so affordable.” It might be hard to believe that someone like Kate Hudson actually can't afford such fancy gowns, though. In 2010, the 34-year-old was ranked No. 97 on Forbes' "Celebrity 100" list, with a pay of $11 million. The following year, she and fiance Matthew Bellamy reportedly droppe ...

A Photo Recap Of Muse's Awesome Concert Last Night In NYC
Business Insider - almost 4 years
Muse played at Madison Square Garden Monday night to a relatively packed house. The Boston Marathon Bombings might have had something to do with a little bit lower attendance than would be expected, but it was still a great crowd and a thoroughly amazing performance. At one point lead singer Matthew Bellamy called out "This is for Boston!" and played the  National Anthem.  We took in the show from the East Floor level and thoroughly enjoyed the impressive stage display and effects. The giant inverted and mechanized moving pyramid TV was especially impressive.  The band was tight and in good form, riffing between new songs like "Madness" and old favorites like "Knights of Cydonia" with ease. Fans of both old and new albums should enjoy the mix played. They stayed true to their classics while calling out some of the better tracks from their new album.  So without further delay, here's our trip to the show.

Muse struggled to establish itself during their early years, but have since gone on to enjoy worldwide success. Muse blend alternative, art rock, experimental rock, progressive rock, classical music, electronica and many more. The band are also well known for their energetic and visually dazzling live performances. On 16–17 June 2007, Muse became the first band to sell out the newly built Wembley Stadium in London.
