It Appears Miranda Kerr And Fiancé Evan Spiegel Are Waiting To Have Sex
Huffington Post - 2 months
It looks like Miranda Kerr and her fiancé Evan Spiegel are sticking to sexy Snapchats.  The model insinuated that she and her betrothed are waiting to have sex until after the wedding in a recent interview with UK paper The Times. It all came out during an exchange about methods of birth control, after Kerr admitted that she wasn’t using protection. When the interviewer asked whether or not she was planning to have another baby, the model explained: “Not yet. Not until after we get married. My partner is very traditional.” “We can’t... I mean we’re just... waiting,” she continued.  The apparent decision to wait is reminiscent of another celebrity couple, singer Ciara and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who didn’t have sex until their wedding night.  Spiegel and Kerr were first reported to be dating in 2015 and made their red carpet debut in February 2016. Just a few months later, the two announced their engagement in July, using a Snapchat filter of course ...

Orlando Bloom Throws It Back To That Time The 'Lord Of The Rings' Cast Got Matching Tattoos
Huffington Post - 6 months
Orlando Bloom is nostalgic for the good old days. The ones when the world was unaware of his preferred paddleboarding regalia, his ears were pointy, and his hair was more majestic than Katy Perry’s ever will be.  That’s why Bloom threw it back to the time he spent filming the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy on Thursday, with an Instagram of his co-stars and their matching Elvish tattoos.  Filming a fantasy epic for more than a year straight and reuniting every year for weeks of additional filming apparently bonds a cast for life. To commemorate the experience, Bloom and other members of the “fellowship,” including Sir Ian McKellen, Viggo Mortensen, Elijah Wood, Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd, got tattoos of the Elvish number nine.  “tbt to when we all got tats cos we loved so much,” he captioned the photo where they all look like LITERAL BABIES. tbt to when we all got tats cos we loved so much A photo posted by orlandobloom (@orlandobloom) on Oct 13, 2016 at 1 ...

Nightlife Photographer Patrick McMullan Explains What It's Like To Party For A Living
Huffington Post - 7 months
When Patrick McMullan was in the ninth grade, he told his guidance counselor he didn’t know what he wanted to do with his life. When pressed to provide some sort of career outlook, he said what most teens would say: “Well, I like going to parties.” The guidance counselor was less than impressed, telling McMullan, “Well, forget it. You’re never going to find a job going to parties.”  And then, he did. McMullan, who recently syndicated his entire collection of photographs with Getty Images to increase their visibility, has become a mainstay in the celebrity nightlife scene. Over the years, he’s given us myriad iconic photos (like the one below of a young Leonardo DiCaprio goofing around in New York City.) Not only has he managed to carve a spot for himself in the industry, he’s also made plenty of famous friends along the way. McMullan’s interest in shooting celebrity nightlife stems from his general love of parties and a desire to capture all types of people. Building relat ...

Now that the world has seen Orlando Bloom’s manhood, Miranda Kerr has finally spoken about the infamous nude photos.  During an interview on Australian radio program “The Kyle and Jackie O Show,” the model, who was married to Bloom from 2010 to 2013, revealed that her ex gave her a heads up about the pics.  “Oh, my God ― he texted me and he was like, ‘Um, I’m really embarrassed. Some photos are coming out. Just thought I should let you know,’” Kerr, 33, said. The photos of Bloom surfaced online earlier this month while he was vacationing with his new girlfriend, Katy Perry. As a result, the internet went nuts.  “I was like, ‘Hmm ... right, what were you thinking?

Justin Bieber And Lionel Richie's 17-Year-Old Daughter Are Now Instagram Official
Huffington Post - 8 months
”Hello! Is it me you’re looking for?” is a question Lionel Richie would probably answer in the negative, if Justin Bieber ever asked for the singer’s permission to date his 17-year-old daughter. And yet, Orlando Bloom’s arch-nemesis has been linked to Sofia Richie over the past couple weeks, with the two going on hikes together, taking in ocean views, almost holding hands and flying to Japan for Bieber’s world tour. On Friday the duo finally made things Instagram official with a series of posts, indicating that they might have an “Endless Love” cuddle sesh in their future.  Bieber was the first to fuel the relationship rumors with a photo of himself smiling next to Richie in the back seat of a car. Of course, to keep it extra mysterious, he left the Instagram sans caption.

The year was 2014. The setting was Ibiza, Spain. The culprits were Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber. The two were caught on camera trading barbs and punches outside a restaurant after Bieber reportedly taunted Bloom over his split with supermodel Miranda Kerr, who was friendly with the singer.  Flash forward to 2016, when nude photos of both Bloom and Bieber surfaced online, resulting in an internet response so great, we can already feel Kim Kardashian reaching for her phone to take another selfie. Two days after photos of the “Lord Of The Rings” actor paddleboarding in the buff with girlfriend Katy Perry made the rounds, The Daily News published pics of Bieber skinny-dipping with model and rumored girlfriend Sahara Ray.
