Christina Aguilera became tearful in a video she shared to thank her fans for their unwavering support. The 37-year-old released her eighth studio album, Liberation, on Friday (15Jun18), and the star posted the video to Twitter with the caption: "Fighters this goes for you too...." Aguilera is seen celebrating while in a restaurant, and decided to dedicate her emotional speech to her loyal fans. "This business is so cutthroat and it's so hard. I feel like I'm gonna cry. When I feel protected, I'm at my best and I just adore the people that are truly loyal to me. And I just love you guys so much," Aguilera said as she became visibly emotional.
Sophie Turner has insisted she's not angry that Kit Harington is paid more than her on Game of Thrones because he "had a bigger storyline". The 23-year-old actress plays Sansa Stark in the hit U.S. TV show, and is believed to earn around $206,000 (£158,000) per week for her role on the programme. Meanwhile, Kit, who stars as her half-brother Jon Snow in the series, is understood to take home approximately three times more than his co-star - with weekly earnings of around $700,000 (£537,000). However, while the gender pay gap is a hot topic at the minute, Sophie told Harper's Bazaar magazine that she's not annoyed at the difference in her and Kit's wages - because he has more work to do on the programme. "Kit got more money than me, but he had a bigger storyline," she said. "And for the last series, he had something crazy like 70 night shoots, and I didn't have that many. I was like, 'You know what... you keep that money.'" Elsewhere in the interview, Sophie opened up about her relationship with Jonas Brothers star fiance Joe Jonas. The pair are currently in the midst of planning their wedding, and the screen star revealed that they actually met when Joe direct messaged her on Instagram. "We had a lot of mutual friends and they'd been trying to introduce us for a long time," she smiled. "We were following each other on Instagram and he direct-messaged me one fine day, out of the blue." Gushing about her husband-to-be, Sophie added: "He's lovely. He's just the funniest. You wouldn't expect he's about to turn 30 this year. He's the most fun, energetic, positive person I've ever seen. I'm pessimistic, so we balance each other out."
The Spice Girls have reportedly been offered a Las Vegas residency. The group, consisting of Mel B, Geri Horner, Emma Bunton and Mel C, are reuniting for a U.K. comeback tour without their fifth member - Victoria Beckham - this June (19). And while talks about taking the tour Stateside have been rumoured for some time, it's now been claimed that the four-piece group are considering following in the footsteps of stars such as Celine Dion and Britney Spears by taking on a residency in Sin City. According to Britain's The Sun newspaper, the group have been offered a big money deal at The Colosseum inside Caesars Palace. "The girls haven't committed to a full U.S. tour, but their production team think a residency could be the perfect fit," a source told the publication. "There is massive money on the table depending on how their UK tour goes. When Celine Dion leaves The Colosseum next June the owners are planning a refurb and want a flagship act to get punters back when it reopens." While Geri, Mel C and Emma are all based in the U.K., Mel B lives in Los Angeles - meaning a residency would be the "perfect fit" for her. And her bandmates are also said to be keen on the idea because it requires less of a commitment than a full U.S. tour. Reports are continuing to swirl about animosity between Mel B and Geri following the former's revelation that she had sex with Ginger Spice in the Spice Girls' heyday. While Geri, Emma and Mel C have been rehearsing for the upcoming tour in London, Mel B has been practising on her own in Los Angeles - fuelling rumours of a falling out.
The 28-year-old singer premiered her "Delicate" music video during the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards broadcast on Sunday, while accepting her award for Female Artist . The video features Swift playing an A-list starlet, who can't take two steps without the attention of her security team or legion of fans. However, when she magically turns invisible, she gets to live the life she's been longing for, dancing around her hotel and the subway without anyone taking notice. ET has learned that "Delicate" was filmed over two nights in downtown Los Angeles and featured historic landmarks such as the Los Angeles Theatre and Biltmore Hotel. The clip also features a sly nod to Swift's beau, Joe Alwyn, as she dances down a city street, past a sign for "Joe's Deli." The single, off her latest album Reputation, talks about a special someone that she can't seem to get off her mind. "Sometimes I wonder when you sleep/Are you ever dreaming of me?/Sometimes when I look into your eyes/I pretend you're mine, all the damn time/'Cause I like you," she sings. "Is it cool that I said all that?/Is it chill that you're in my head?/'Cause I know that it's delicate." Swift previously teased the video on her Instagram with a handwritten note about when the clip would drop. Earlier this week, the GRAMMY winner was spotted on a romantic hike with Alywn in Malibu, California. The "Look What You Made Me Do" singer rocked a pair of black running shorts, a dark gray tank top and a black hoodie tied around her waist and held on to her beau's arm as they neared the end of the trail. The couple has been going steady since last May and only spotted together a handful of times.
