Liam Payne – Loving Christmas as a Dad

Liam Payne quotes that he “fell in love with Christmas” after becoming a father, because his son Bear "filled a hole" that was missing in him during the holiday season. He always though the festive season “always felt a little hollow” but after welcoming his son with his ex-partner Cheryl over three years ago, he now truly understands the merry spirit of the holidays.

He said: "For me, it really reignited Christmas. I moved away from home at 17, so Christmas kind of took on a new meaning. It was great to be able to shower people with gifts and make everybody feel welcome, but Christmas always felt a little bit hollow for some reason. Now he's kind of filled that hole for me and I understand it all over again.”

Previously, his son Bear was too young to understand what Christmas is all about, now that he is older – 3 years old – he “completely gets it”. As Liam quoted about the same - "He completely gets it now! He's been watching ‘Home Alone’ and 'Merry Christmas, you filthy animal' was one of his first phrases. I think it is absolutely hilarious. I wouldn't have it any other way.”

“When we all fall asleep, where do we go?” tour trip cancelled

18-year-old musician – Billie Eilish announced on 4th December, Friday that she was cancelling the “When we all fall asleep, where do we go?” tour trip which was previously postponed due to the COVID 19 pandemic

The tour was actually supposed to last for 6 months starting March but had to be unfortunately postponed just after 3 shows due to the pandemic.

The Grammy winning musician has now cancelled the tour to enable her fans to receive refunds for their tickets, says Variety. "We`ve tried as many scenarios as possible for the tour but none are possible and, although I know so many of you want to hold onto your tickets and VIP passes, the best thing we can do for everyone is to get the money back into your hands as soon as we can," she tweeted.

The ‘Bad Guy’ singer added to keep an eye for any emails for the next tour that would come up when it would be safe.

Meghan Markle’s reflection and quotes on Motherhood, royal life, more

The former Suits star is not afraid to speak her mind. Ever since she married into the royal family, she has faced many obstacles in her way and here are some of her honest quotes about the same. During a candid interview with the BBC shortly after their engagement made headlines, Meghan and her then-fiancé opened up about the extreme negativity they’d been subject to in the public eye.

Here is something she had to say about the media gloom faced by them.

“Of course, it’s disheartening,” Meghan said at the time. “You know, it’s a shame that that is the climate in this world … but I think at the end of the day, I’m really just proud of who I am and where I come from, and we have never put any focus on that. We’ve just focused on who we are as a couple.

In May 2019 she gave birth to her son Archie and admitted being a new mom in the spotlight has added on to the difficulties.

“Any woman, especially when they’re pregnant, you’re really vulnerable, and so that was made really challenging. And then when you have a new-born, you know. And especially as a woman, it’s a lot … on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed,” she said during the October 2019 ITV documentary, Harry & Meghan: An African Journey.

Miley Cyrus’ at her best – Plastic Hearts

Miley Cyrus secures her place in the world’s rock music royalty with ‘Plastic Hearts,’ her best album yet.

Sure, 2013’s Bangerz was a cultural reset. It gave so many hits like “We Can't Stop” or “Wrecking Ball” or "Adore You", but this is the record she was “born to make” or is what she's known for.

Much of the album is inspired by Cyrus’ divorce from Liam Hemsworth. For example, songs like “7 Things” from 2008’s Breakout. “Am I wrong that I moved on, and I / And I don’t even miss you / Thought that it’d be you until I die / But I let go,” she sings over electric guitars and a stadium-rock beat were all influenced by her relationship with Liam Hemsworth.

Referencing the November 2018 wildfire that devastated the Malibu home she shared with now ex-husband, Cyrus continued, “Nature did what I now see as a favour and destroyed what I couldn’t let go of for myself. I lost my house in a fire but found myself in its ashes.”

Close points out that Gwyneth Paltrow’s performance in Shakespeare in Love was not worthy of her 1999 Oscar Win

Glenn Close had some candid thoughts about the Oscars, and admitted that she didn’t believe that Gwyneth Paltrow being awarded an Oscar for her performance in “Shakespeare in Love” doesn’t “make sense.”

As the seven-time Oscar nominee opens up about her thoughts on the Academy Awards during ABC News’ interview she comments that

“I honestly feel that to be nominated by your peers is about as good as it gets,” she explained. “And then, I’ve never understood how you could honestly compare performances, you know? I remember the year Gwyneth Paltrow won over that incredible actress who was in Central Station [Fernanda Montenegro] and I thought, ‘What?’ It doesn’t make sense.”

Although Paltrow’s performance in Shakespeare in Love became a monumental role in her career, the actress almost didn’t join the cast.
