Ke$ha : Billboard’s Top Newcomer

Ke$ha enjoyed a champagne shower on the cover of Billboard’s latest issue.

The 23-year-old pop star had reason to celebrate — she was named the magazine’s Hot 100 Artist of the Year, as well as Top New Artist!

“I pretty much feel like I’ve been reborn into this completely different existence. My entire life has become making music and playing shows, and I love it,” K$ tells Billboard about her whirlwind past year.

Ke$ha striked a pose at the 40 Principales Awards 2010 on Friday (December 10) at Palacio de los Deportes in Madrid, Spain.

The 23-year-old pop star, who was nominated for best non-Spanish international artist and best non-Spanish song (for “Tik Tok”), later hit the stage to perform.

“Spain. r u ready for my ponytail?” K$ tweeted.

Thankfully, Rihanna decided to tone down her Ronald McDonald red hair for the AMAs! As a result, the “Only Girl (In the World)” singer looked ravishing in a lace gown by Elie Saab, which perfectly matched her dark curls and showed just a hint of skin.

Miley Cyrus — who turns 18 on Tuesday — proved she’s not a little girl anymore in a chiffon Marchesa mini, which featured a fun, flowing train. Christian Louboutin “Maralena” stilettos and Neil Lane bling completed her lovely look.

Jada Pinkett Smith donned a daring Emilio Pucci masterpiece and gold Christian Louboutin gladiator booties.

“We R Who We R” songstress Ke$ha sported yet another tangled eyesore and disastrous ‘do. Will she ever learn that less is more? Probably not.

Pink debuted a new silver coif and easily hid her burgeoning baby bump in a ruffled dress, while hubby Carey Hart kept it classy in head-to-toe black. Love this couple!

Katy Perry — who typically makes the worst-dressed list — turned heads in a feminine Badgley Mischka frock and Brian Atwood platform peep-toes.

Fergie — who won the Favorite Pop/Rock Band trophy alongside her fellow Black Eyed Peas — was dressed for success in an embellished mini, from Indian designers Falguni and Shane Peacock, which featured exaggerated shoulder pads and feather detailing.

Fortunately, Avril Lavigne ditched her signature hoodie in favor of a black-and-white print mini for the event. The punk princess accessorized with chain-adorned booties and plenty of spiky, studded bangles.

How hot is Kelly Osbourne? The reality star rocked big blond hair, big bold rings, and a black frock that accentuated her fabulous new physique.

Keri Hilson played in safe in a black crocodile mini and two-toned feathered ‘do!

It’s too bad “Dancing With the Stars” pro Cheryl Burke paired her cute champagne-colored frock with clunky embellished platforms.

Rihanna opened the night sporting a bikini-ensemble for her three-song medley ‘Loved The Way U Lie’,’What’s My Name’, & ‘Only Girl In The World’.

Rihanna also popped a pose backstage in this Elie Saab stunner, which featured dramatic draping and a thigh-high slit. We much prefer this look to the cranberry-colored catastrophe she wore on the red carpet, don’t you?

Taylor Swift changed into an all black skinny pants and blazer ensemble for her dramatic “Back to December/Apologize” mashup.

Christina Aguilera performed “Express” from her new movie debut, Burlesque. Ms. Aguilera looked like the perfect burlesque songstress in her sexy glittery bodysuit.

Later in the day, Ke$ha stripped down to go swimming at the beach and wrapped herself in a towel afterward.

US Weekly’s Hot Hollywood “Stars Who Care”

Ke$ha sported a massive faux hawk at Us Weekly’s “Stars Who Care” bash on Thursday night, held at the Colony Club in L.A. When asked about her crazy ‘do, the “Tik Tok” singer replied, “Even when I do dress up it’s never like a pretty girl. I think it’s more interesting to have a little of your [own] style in anything.”

Paris Hilton striked a pose in classic nude pumps. She paired the timeless heels with a silver halter dress and wavy gold locks.

Nicky Hilton looked fierce in this little one shoulder cocktail dress. The snakeskin print and alligator belt are phenom!

Katie Cassidy was stunning in this multi-colored sequins cocktail dress. Her matching silver clutch is to die for.

Fashion Report : 2010 MTV Europe Music Awards Purple Carpet

Rihanna was as beautiful as ever in the guise of a swan at the MTV Europe Video Awards in this fabulous frou-frou Marchesa gown with a feathered fish-tail skirt and sheer bodice. Fresh-faced make-up in a tangerine palette played up her bright red locks.

An ecstatic Rihanna performed her single “Only Girl (In The World)” in fairytale style, adding to the faux garden of flowers with the rose-embellished train on her corset dress.

Teen queen Miley Cyrus worked the perfect mix of girly and masculine in this adorable (albeit Colonel Sanders-like) $1,600 Dolce & Gabbana tiered halterneck dress and stacked gold bracelets. More …

Ke$ha : ‘Risque’ Video Shoot !

Ke$ha donned a shattered glass and bullet chain top as she shoots her new “We R Who We R” video, directed by Hype Williams, in Los Angeles on Wednesday (November 3).

The “Blah Blah Blah” babe also donned an American Flag shirt and a pair of red sequined panties as she worked it for the camera.

And throughout the shoot, Ke$ha made several obscene gestures while holding a rosary, causing a little confusion as to what was going on.

The 23-year-old pop singer tweeted that night, “Driving home from my video shoot [the] same time traffic starts. Sunrise. Soo tired n soooo fking lucky u guys r gonna flip over this one.”

Fashion Report : VMA 2010 White Carpet

Lady Gaga looked rather conservative (for her) while making her grand entrance at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards in a dramatic Renaissance-inspired gown from Alexander McQueen’s last collection. The pop star topped off her blue, lilac, and gray locks with a gold feather headpiece.

Usher clearly inspired his protege Justin Bieber’s ensemble. Not only did the duo come clad in head-to-toe black, but both fellas even tucked their pants into their shoes and donned black shades. Unfortunately, the 16-year-old pop star looked a little girly in his lady glasses while posing with the suave 31-year-old King of R&B.

Katy Perry probably described her baring black-and-white dress best herself when she said, “I feel like an ice skater. I also feel like I got a tattoo when I was drunk.” Rainbow Brite hair and nails adorned with images of her hubby-to-be, Russell Brand, completed the look.

Best New Artist nominee Ke$ha showed off her stems in a micro mini, which she made out of a trash bag! The “Blah Blah Blah” party girl paired her creative frock with turquoise rings, patent leather platform heels, a silver clutch, and an enormous braid.

“Twilight” hottie Ashley Greene delivered a model-like look in an embellished corset, ruffled mini, and freshly-highlighted tresses.

“Modern Family’s” Sofia Vergara looked almost too classy for the MTV event in a sexy sequined sheath and patent-leather pumps.

Although we think Audrina Patridge looks better in gold, the reality cutie still glittered in a silver mini, which she accessorized with diamond bangles and sparkling, strappy heels.

Audrina’s former “Hills” co-stars, Stephanie Pratt and Lauren Bosworth, also got gussied up for the MTV event. While Steph looked like a sun-kissed California girl in a sheer sequined Nicole Miller dress, Lo paired her bouffant ‘do with a sassy strapless gold frock.

Disney darling Selena Gomez failed to impress in a tin foil-like frock, chintzy-looking heels, and an abundance of eyeshadow.

Selena’s fellow teen titan Miranda Cosgrove (“iCarly”) wore yet another matronly ensemble that belonged on someone three times her age.

30 Seconds to Mars bandmates Tomo Milicevic, Jared Leto, and Shannon Leto hit the white carpet in shades of gray. Jared — who is just as hot as he was when he starred on “My So-Called Life” — needs to tell his older brother Shannon that tight-rolling your pants (particularly your dress pants) is an ’80s trend that should never be revived.

Rosario Dawson looked slightly uncomfortable and a bit outdated in her ruched pleather dress, teal stilettos, and Joker-like lipstick.

Brenda Song — who appears in the upcoming flick “The Social Network” — was ready to rock in leather pants, a spangled top, and big hoops.

Let’s be honest, Ciara also deserves a second look. The R&B songstress dropped jaws at the MTV event in a fashion-forward Givenchy dress, statement earrings, and pink wedges. Va-va-voom!

Emma Stone hits the red carpet in a black Pucci mini dress. Emma finished her look with Neil Lane jewelry and Giuseppe Zanotti Design shoes. She also rocked a Dana Rebecca Designs Samantha Elizabeth Super Seven Quartz & Diamond Ring and Kara Ackerman Designs Inside Out Hoops in Silver & Diamond.

Marilyn Manson’s former flame Evan Rachel Wood pursed her lips and struck a pose in an ill-fitting, one-shoulder dress and thigh-high boots.
