Christmas Spree 2010

“American Idol” judge Jennifer Lopez and her hubby Marc Anthony were spotted hitting up the Kitson Kids boutique in Beverly Hills, presumably picking out presents for their 2-year-old twins Emme and Max.

Hilary Duff emerged from Fred Segal in West Hollywood laden with gifts. Something for her new hubby, perhaps?

Despite the rainy L.A. weather, Rihanna went shoe shopping at Barneys New York in Beverly Hills. Let’s hope she had her “Umbrella”!

Kate Bosworth was also spotted browsing the beautiful shoes at Barneys.

As did newlywed Nicole Richie, who sported a funky hat, knee-high boots, and festive red Chanel bag for her trip to the luxury retailer.

“Iron Man 2’s” Olivia Munn and “Poseidon’s” Emmy Rossum indulged their shoe addictions as well. Who knew these two were friends?

Newly-single Vanessa Hudgens enjoyed her Christmas shopping at Barneys. Looked like she didn’t even mind about her recent break-up !

Reese Witherspoon also got into holiday spirit as she shoped at Barneys for Christmas.

Seriously, if your Christmas wish is to see a celeb, just hang out in the shoe department at Barneys! Selma Blair was there, too.

Kourtney Kardashian and her baby daddy Scott Disick picked up a few gifts at Polacheck’s jewelers in Calabasas, California. Think Scott will be putting a ring on it this Christmas?

Jennifer Garner took a break from Christmas shopping for her family to peruse for shoes.

Hotel heiress Paris Hilton brought along a friend for her trip to Kitson in Los Angeles. Of course, her browsing was probably unrelated to the holiday, Paris seems to go shopping every day!

Kirsten Dunst sported a bowler hat and a trench coat while purchasing presents at Barneys in Beverly Hills.

Ashlee Simpson did some last minute Christmas shopping at American Vintage on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles.

Rihanna : ‘Licky’ On British GQ

Making for quite the titillating spread, Rihanna adorned the cover of the January 2011 issue of British GQ magazine. The Barbadian beauty rocked her red hair as she tossed on a few skimpy outfits for a sexy spread accompanying her interview.

Here’s what  Riri had to share :

On end of her relationship with Chris Brown : “Sometimes when you’re on the inside of a relationship like that, you can’t see it clearly for what it is. I left – it was the best feeling. It was so freeing. I witnessed it happening to my mom and I said I would never let that happen to me – and then it was happening. Now, when I look back, it bugs me out that I couldn’t see it for what it was.”

On dealing with the assault : “Before that, I was just a little girl from the island, singing pop music. It was easy to think I didn’t have a problem in the world. Then all of a sudden, boom! Everybody realizes that I do have problems. It made me strong. It’s a moment in my life I wish would disappear. In my head, it’s gone. I have too much pride, I’d never let anyone see me cry. I don’t want you to remember me for that.”

Rihanna left her hotel and waves to fans and photographers while arriving at a studio for The X Factor finale on Saturday (December 11) in London, England.

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.

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

Rihanna : Interview December ‘Vixen’

Rihanna covers December’s Interview magazine and she was interviewed by none other than Kanye West for the cover story. Rihanna looks stunning and the most sophisticated we’ve seen her, posing with short pinned up hair in an array of elegant outfits. The feature was shot by renown photographer Mikael Jansson.

Here’s what the ‘Only Girl In The World’ singer had to share:

Rihanna on motherhood : “I don’t really plan on the age. It could be a year from now. It could be 10 years from now. Whenever is right . . . I mean, I have a lot of other stuff to accomplish before I get to kids. Whenever the time is right, I’ll just know.”

Rihanna on raising her kids : “I can’t live that far away from everything now, without kids . . . So I certainly couldn’t raise kids and [have a career] with the demanding schedule that I have.”

ihanna’s also the red haired coverstar of Marie Claire December issue, and talks exclusively to the magazine alongside a gorgeous photoshoot. She got emotional during her interview, in which she spoke about how she’s changed, and how she relates to the duet she recorded with Eminem. Here are some extracts from her interview:

On if she’s a different person now: “Yes, I was very lost. I have to say I felt really confused. It was really strange because… Aaagh… I hate talking about it but it was really crazy because I felt so out of touch with myself and when that happens… It’s scary because nothing you say or do feels like it’s you. You just lose touch of everything that you love and everything that you would normally do; how you would dress or how you would say something… It just feels like it’s not coming from you. It’s just this one empty vase. I felt like an empty vessel… [crying] I’m just… I feel like… I smile for real this time.”

On her duet with Eminem: “He confronted himself on it. He basically gives insight into what goes on in the mind of a couple in a domestically violent relationship. I love that in every verse it just gets to that point where she wants to leave, she wants to leave, she leaves, she leaves, she leaves… but then the hook always comes back and it’s like, ‘I love it. I love it.’ That’s not what you think when it’s happening. You know you don’t like it but you’re staying, so it’s almost like you must love it because you’re not leaving.”

On if she related to that on a personal level: “Absolutely. Absolutely! Every word in that song is true. It would take somebody who’s been on the inside to understand how magical those lyrics are. Everybody loves the song but the lyrics can never hit home until you’ve seen it, witnessed it, in your home or experienced it yourself.”

Having spent the past few days in the Big Apple, Rihanna was spotted make a trip to JFK Airport for a flight out town on Wednesday (November 17).
