Are you Team Coco, Team Karolina, or Team Naomi?
Did you watch the premiere of The Face last night? I learned three things from this episode about the world of modeling. First, you gotta be confident and fearless. Team Coco’s Stephanie was so unsure and it was photographed forever in her first photo shoot. Second, you gotta play your strengths. Team Karolina didn’t play it safe but also didn’t foolishly risk it all and her team won the group challenge. And third, never, ever cross Naomi Campbell.
What team are you on? Check out the profiles of Coco Rocha, Karolina Kurkova, and Naomi Campbell in the videos below and tell us who are you rooting for in the comments section! And don’t miss the next episode of The Face when it airs Tuesdays at 9E/6P right here on MUCH.
We #MuchLove Scott Willats
We asked New.Music.Live.‘s Scott Willats to share some of the best #MuchLove moments in his life and he revealed a lot! Check out his answers below!
I remember it as if it was yesterday. I was in Grade 6 and there was a girl who I was head over heals for. We walked home and stopped at the park where we had to go our separate ways. As much as I want to say I was a Casanova and leaned in, the truth is she instigated it because my nerves were killing me. But it happened and I had a smile on my face for at least 2 weeks.
A very special girl once took me to my favourite soccer teams game. Just the fact that I found a girl who was into what I was into was enough for me but these tickets were V.I.P. so we were able to go anywhere in the stadium we wanted. Anywhere, you know what I mean.
Went to a restaurant where her ex boyfriend served us. Awkward.
Biggest Celebrity Crush
Eva Longoria. Kate Beckinsale annnnnnnnnd Vida Guerra.
Comfort. If her and I are comfortable it doesn’t matter what we do, I guarantee we’ll have fun.

Bruno Mars makes a fan’s prom dreams come true
If you can’t admit that you listen to Bruno Mars’ Marry You when you think about your crush or significant other, then I have nothing to say to you. Right now as I’m typing this I’m listening to the song and I’m picturing a ring on my finger and birds fixing my hair, Disney-style. Maybe it’s all this #MuchLove in the air. But in all seriousness, have you seen this video of Bruno Mars on Ellen? A major fan wanted to get Bruno to take her to prom but because of scheduling he couldn’t and instead staged an impromptu prom onstage with Ellen!
Watch the video below and be prepared to go “Aww!!!” and spend twenty minutes of mad YouTubing of Bruno Mars hit videos. Yeah. I know. Also, did you know he’s going on tour? Check out the details here.

Ke$ha’s documentary will feature a urine cocktail
During an interview with BBC Radio 1 this week, Ke$ha talked about her upcoming MTV documentary series My Crazy Beautiful Life, sharing some less than savory details. The singer confirmed that the documentary will be an uncensored look at her life on the road, saying “It’s my brother and his weird friend following me around for the past two-and-a-half years. We didn’t know what we were doing per se, but it’s my little brother and he’s my best friend. He’s got me wasted at 6am … He got all the things you would want to see and all the things you wouldn’t really want to see – making out with dudes, drinking my own pee, jumping out of a building, jumping out of airplanes, swimming with sharks …” Well, I was going to discuss her brother getting her drunk and filming her make out with dudes, but then she drank her own pee. I can only focus on one horrifying piece of information at a time.
Ke$ha told the radio station “I was told drinking my own pee was good, I was trying to be healthy … Somebody tried to take my pee away from me and I said, ‘That is mine!’ So I snatched it up and took a chug and it was really gross so I don’t do it anymore.” Yes, she drank her own pee. Is this documentary a remake of Water World? Why would consuming your own waste be healthy?
Ke$ha went on to say “[How often do I get told I'm amazing?] Not enough! My fans are amazing to me but usually the people around me say, ‘You’re disgusting!’ or, ‘Put your pants on!’ or ‘You’re late!’ Or they say, ‘You smell weird, what’s that smell?’ I smell like a hobo.” There’s a very easy solution to Ke$ha’s problems and it involves not consuming her own urine. And buying an alarm clock.
Airing in April, My Crazy Beautiful Life follows Ke$ha over a two year period as she records her new disc Warrior, travels the globe and tries to keep a handle on both her personal and professional lives. And drinks her own pee. Dude. Come on.
Lady Gaga forced to cancel tour dates due to injury
Lady Gaga has posted a series of tweets apologizing to fans for cancelling upcoming Born This Way Ball Tour dates. Gaga’s doctor has ordered the singer to postpone her upcoming shows in Chicago, Detroit and Hamilton in order to let a joint inflammation the singer has been suffering through heal properly. Called synovitis, Gaga could cause permanent damage to her joints if she continues performing while they are inflamed.
Gaga posted the following message to her 34 million Twitter followers last night:
“There’s an unfortunate announcement coming out right now, concerning myself and the Born This Ball. Im so sorry. I barely know what to say. I’ve been hiding a show injury and chronic pain for sometime now,over the past month it has worsened. I’ve been praying it would heal. I hid it from my staff, I didn’t want to disappoint my amazing fans. However after last nights performance I could not walk and still can’t. To the fans in Chicago Detroit & Hamilton I hope you can forgive me, as it is nearly impossible for me to forgive myself. Im devasted & sad. It will hopefully heal as soon as possible, I hate this. I hate this so much. I love you and Im sorry.”
A total of four shows so far have been cancelled on the tour with Gaga expected to resume her schedule after February 17.
