Madonna tries some Taylor Swift tactics, Charlize and Sean are plagued by split rumours, and Bethany Hamilton becomes a mum. Team EW breaks down the week in pictures…
Madonna Takes On Taylor
Just weeks after Taylor Swift broke the internet with the star-studded video for her track Bad Blood, a rumoured swipe at pop rival Katy Perry, Madonna (main image) rallied her own celeb mates to appear in the video for her new single B***h I’m Madonna. Including – you guessed it – one Katy Perry. Madge even posted a movie poster style teaser on her Instagram, just like Taylor did, promising cameos from Beyonce, Miley Cyrus and Rita Ora. The video hit the web today, and we couldn’t help but notice all three stars’ appearances are somewhat, ahem, fleeting. Blink and you’ll miss Beyonce. We love Madge, but there’s the teeniest whiff of desperation about this move…
Is It Over For Charlize and Sean?
They were the picture of togetherness at the Cannes Film Festival last month, but Charlize Theron and Sean Penn are believed to have broken off their engagement after a three year relationship. They haven’t been seen together in recent weeks, and a source confirmed the split to People Magazine in the US. The news comes after the actress described Penn as “the love of my life” in an interview with British Elle. Charlize, 39, is now in London filming scenes for her upcoming movie The Huntsman.
Bethany Hamilton becomes a mum
She lost an arm in a near fatal shark attack as a 13-year-old, but Bethany Hamilton got back in the water just three weeks later, going on to become a professional surfer, author, motivational speaker and the subject of a documentary, Heart Of A Soul Surfer. Now she can add mother to that list, after welcoming baby Tobias with her husband Adam. The inspirational 25-year-old told her Instagram followers: “Adam and I are so in love with our lil guy and are stoked to share life with him!”
Victoria Beckham donates Harper’s baby clothes to charity
London’s yummy mummies will have been out in force today after getting wind of this surprise sale. Victoria Beckham announced on Instagram that she was donating Harper’s old baby clothes to a Marylebone charity shop in aid of Save The Children. Between the Charlotte Olympia Kitty flats, the Stella McCartney frocks and the knitted Chloe dress in neutral grey, little Harper had herself a capsule wardrobe to die for. It’s just a shame none of it would fit us.
