Christina Aguilera Stuns Fans with Bare-Faced Paper Magazine Cover

Quick, think of past Paper Magazine issues and tell us what comes to mind…

Nudity, right?

A great deal of nudity, highlighted by Kim Kardashian’s infamous 2014 spread, no?

Same here, don’t worry. You aren’t alone.

In the latest issue of this iconic publication, however, Christina Aguilera puts a unique twist on this naked theme:

She poses for a handful of extreme close-ups, all of which involve not a hint of makeup on her face.

Yes, that really is Christina Aguilera above and below, revealing almost more of herself in this manner that even Kim did three and a half years ago — or Nicki Minaj did when she got down and dirty in Paper.

Just consider:

How many times have you seen a celebrity’s butt or boobs?

It’s not all that rare, is it?

Okay, now consider: How many times have you seen a celebrity with no lipstick, mascara or eye shadow anywhere on her face?

It’s far less frequent, isn’t it?

Why did Aguilera take this bold step for Paper?

“I’ve always been someone that obviously loves to experiment, loves theatrics, loves to create a storyline and play a character in a video or through stage,” she explained to the magazine, adding:

“I’m a performer, that’s who I am by nature.

“But I’m at the place, even musically, where it’s a liberating feeling to be able to strip it all back and appreciate who you are and your raw beauty.”

Aguilera became known over the years for often changing up her appearance, going from a style that oozed sex appeal when she first struck it big to one that was a lot more retro in the 2010s.

“I can’t stay in a stagnant place for too long, which is why I think the position I was in with television just became very stifling,” she told Paper, referencing her six-season stint on The Voice.

She continued:

“I need movement, I need to go explore, be an artist, create and transform.”

Unlike past Paper cover subjects, Christina isn’t nude and/or hugging a pig for her pictorial.

But that doesn’t mean the artist doesn’t see herself as an innovator.

“Be fearless in breaking new boundaries and don’t be afraid to go against the grain of criticism along the way,” she tells Paper.

Isn’t she afraid of what people are gonna say about her online?

“There’s always gonna be those trolls out there or people that have their own definition and ideals of beauty, but I think we’re progressing to a place of pushback and more people coming out.”

This is an impressive display of self-confidence on Aguilera’s part, both her photos themselves and her affiliated quotes.

The star just hope she pass along similar traits to her three-year old daughter.

“I don’t want to inject too much upon her as to how I’m choosing to live my life and what I’ve done in my career,” Aguilera says, concluding:

“I just hope I can allow what I’m doing to influence her to be her own person. That’s truly what I hope for her.

“I really want to make sure my children are both very confident in the sense that they know who they are and that they won’t be easily swayed by outside opinion.”


Jinger Duggar Stuns Fans With Short Skirt on Counting On!

Back in March of 2017 Jinger Duggar wore pants in a photo that was posted to Instagram by her husband, Jeremy Vuolo.

That may not sound like a big deal, but during her entire upbringing Joy was never allowed to wear pants, and she dressed in below-the-knee skirts at all times.

Now, nearly one year after the start of her sartorial rebellion, Jinger has once again left fans floored with her fashion sense.

The new season of Counting On premiered on Monday, and as you can see, Jinger tossed her family’s “modest attire” regulations out the window during a game of tennis with her husband, Jeremy Vuolo.

As The Ashley’s Reality Roundup points out, viewers were quick to praise Jinger’s courageous disregard for her family’s ridiculous rules.

“Oh snap Jinger! Sleeveless shirt and a short skirt. You better work that outfit,” tweeted one fan.

“Jinger looks so happy and beautiful,” wrote another viewer wrote.

“So happy to see her living life as a normal adult woman!”

“Jinger in that tennis skirt… #Rebel #JimBobIsCrying,” a third remarked.

Sadly, the #JimBobIsCrying hashtag didn’t trend internationally. 

But hey, there’s always next week!

According to the strict guidelines under which the Duggar women are raised, women and girls must wear long skirts or dresses at all time as long as they live with their parents.

When they get married, it’s their husbands who make the rules about how they’re allowed to dress.

Jim Bob has reportedly clashed with Vuolo over the latter’s progressive (by Duggar standard) views, but at the end of the day, he has no choice but to respect Jeremy’s rules.

Vuolo, a Texas-based preacher, addressed the topic of women’s attire in a recent sermon.

“It is your liberty as to whether you dress modestly with a modest pair of pants, or with a skirt, or with a T-shirt, or with a blouse,” Jeremy told his congregation at Grace Community Church.

“It is not your liberty, women, to wear sensual, seductive clothing that is designed to draw the attention of your brothers.”

He clarified his views in an interview with The Inquisitr, saying:

“The emphasis of the gospel is not food or clothes. Jesus does not save people to make them wear skirts.”

Hard to believe, but the guy’s basically a lefty extremist by Duggar standards!

Duggar Family: New Counting On Promo Stuns Fans!

It’s hard to think of a famous family more secretive than the Duggars.

Sure they have their reality show and their tens of millions of social media followers, but there are many aspects of their lives that they work hard to keep private.

For obvious reasons, they’re not always successful in that endeavor.

Of course, keeping a lower profile would mean failing to properly promote their reality show, and thus allowing the foundation of their media empire to crumble.

So the Duggars make do with the fact that sometimes, the public will intrude on their private lives a bit more than they would prefer.

These days, with a new season of Counting On soon to premiere, the Duggar marketing machine is running non-stop.

But as always, Jim Bob and company are being cagey about which details of the upcoming episodes they choose to share with the public.

Over the weekend, a new promotional pic for the new season was revealed, and Duggar obsessives picked up on some very surprising details.

For one, it looks like the show will be getting back to basics.

Unlike 19 Kids and Counting, the original intent of Counting On was to focus on Michelle and Jim Bob’s older kids (with the obvious exception of Josh Duggar, who’s still in exile).

The next thing that fans zeroed in on was the obvious absence of Jill Duggar.

Jill’s husband, Derick Dillard, was fired from the show back in November after harassing fellow TLC star Jazz Jennings on Twitter.

Derick stated that Jill wouldn’t be returning to Counting On either, but many fans doubted if the Dillards would stick to their guns on that one.

After all, this is a family with such serious financial constraints that they’ve been forced to rely on donations from fans to get by.

Counting On was their primary source of income, and it’s likely that these days, Jill and Derick are struggling.

Other details fans took note of were less revealing, but still indicates that the show is headed in a different direction this season.

For one thing, there’s Joy-Anna Duggar’s attire.

Several commenters pointed out that she’s wearing a much shorter skirt than we typically see on the Duggar women,

That may not sound like a big deal, but this is a family that’s made the importance of “modest attire” a big part of their brand and public persona.

A Duggar in a short skirt is a major sign that the times are changing, even in Tontitown, Arkansas.

Recently some of the Duggar women have taken to wearing pants, but the rebellious legwear is nowhere to be seen in the promo pic, and may not make it on screen this season.

Jim Bob is still an executive producer, after all.

Finally, the presence of Joseph Duggar’s wife, Kendra Caldwell, is being taken as an indication that the show will shift its focus to their relationship this season.

We guess that’s one of the advantages of being reality TV’s biggest family – you never run out of new storylines.

Watch Counting On online in order to get caught up for the big premiere on February 26.


Jill Duggar Stuns Fans, Wears PANTS to Speak at School!

Back in July of 2017, Jinger Duggar stunned fans of her family by wearing pants in an Instagram photo.

Up to that point, Duggar women of Jinger’s generation had exclusively worn long skirts, and the pants pic was widely viewed as an act of defiance.

To the chagrin of Jim Bob and the utter joy of many Duggar fans, Jinger sparked a rebellion–and started a trend.

Not long after her sister posted the photo, Jill Duggar began wearing pants, and once again, fans rejoiced.

Jill was the first of her sisters to marry and have kids of her own.

She’s often regarded as the spitting image of her mother, a doting wife and dedicated stay-at-home mom who lives to cater to her family’s needs and obey her husband.

So when Jill tossed the family dress code in the trash, it served as an indication that the new rules are here to stay.

And a new photo of the 26-year-old that appeared on her husband’s Instagram page this week might send the strongest message yet:

Derick Dillard posted the above photo, along with a caption reading:

“My beautiful wife speaking to a group of young ladies at a school today about God-centered relationships!”

Jill has been wearing pants in public for several months, but the fact that she neglected her family’s well-known dress code in an environment such as a school speaking engagement is being viewed by many as a bold rejection of her strict upbringing.

As In Touch Weekly points out, the response from fans has been ecstatically supportive.

“Yesss with the pants free the legs ladies!” commented one fan.

“Omgggggggg I am deceased. It’s not even a super long shirt!!!” wrote another.

“They have finally realized they can have their own freedoms. You can be modest and still wear pants. Clearly shown,” said a third Instagram follower. 

Jill and her sisters are still stuck in a bygone era in the sense that they strictly adhere to rules set by their husbands, but fortunately, the new men in their lives are far more lenient than their father.

Derick might not be as progressive as Jinger’s husband, Jeremy Vuolo, but it seems he’s come around to the idea that there’s nothing blasphemous about a pair of pants.

It’s a minor step forward, but it represents a whole new world of freedom for the Duggar women.

Jessa Duggar Stuns Fans: My Kids Are Growing Up SO Fast!

It seems not a month goes by that without some news of another Duggar birth or pregnancy.

At this point, Jim Bob and Michelle have so many grandkids it can be a struggle to keep them all straight.

Fortunately, it doesn’t seem as though the kids are wanting for attention.

In addition to the love of their parents, the new generation of Duggars enjoys the affection of an army of aunts and uncles, as well as millions of fans all over the world.

So when a milestone is reached, the occasion is celebrated not only by the family but by the entirety of Duggar Nation.

And lately, there’s been so much cause for celebration coming from the Seewald household that it’s been difficult to keep up with it all.

Jessa Duggar and her husband, Ben Seewald, are parents to 2-year-old Spurgeon and 11-month-old Henry.

Needless to say, it’s a hectic home, and quite understandably, Jessa’s house is often a mess.

By while the mother of two has been applauded for sharing candid photos of cluttered abode, it’s the achievements of her two boys that really win fans’ hearts:

This week saw a handful of memorable moments, as Henry (above) stood on his own for the first time.

Jessa shared photos from the big day and noted that it took place shortly after Spurgeon turned two:

“We had a fun time celebrating Spurgeon’s birthday yesterday. We’re so grateful to God for this sweet little boy,” Jessa wrote on Instagram.

“It has been such a joy to watch him grow and learn this past year. Can’t believe he’s already 2 years old!”

Of course, they call ‘em the terrible twos for a reason, and it seems Jessa has already come to accept that she’ll need to take the good with the bad:

Jessa posted the above video to Instagram earlier today along with the following explanation:

“Henry tried to break apart Spurgeon’s car tracks, so big bro shouted ‘Noooo!’ Baby replied with, what sounded like, “Yeaaah!” So big bro hovered over his tracks in a protective manner and said ‘Nooo!’ again.

“Ha! And so it continued. The toddler was distraught, and the baby didn’t have clue. #FirstVerbalArgument”

It’s a good thing that Jessa has a sense of humor about moments like these.

She’s sure to experience many more of them in the years to come.

Jenelle Evans Tweets About David Eason’s Cancer, Stuns Fans

Jenelle Evans and David Eason have endured a lot in their short time together.

Obviously, many–if not most–of their problems are self-created, but the newlyweds have also been dealt some bad hands by fate.

Earlier this week, one of Jenelle’s Twitter followers threw some mortality shade in what might be a candidate for Most Random Tweet of the Year.

“Taller people have shorter life expectencies. Just throwing this in the mix,” the hater wrote beneath a photo from Jenelle and David’s wedding.

Yes, someone looked at a photo of a smiling couple that had just tied the knot and thought, “Whatever, the guy’s gonna die soon, anyway.”

Fortunately, Jenelle apparently has fans, and many of them jumped to her defense, informing the Angel of Death that her tweet was obnoxious and out of line.

Initially, it looked like Jenelle would sit this one out, but eventually, she chimed in with a revelation that left fans stunned.

“Especially because he’s a cancer survivor…” Evans tweeted.

Asked for clarification, Evans wrote:

“Uhm..He had a thyroidectomy, why do you think he has a scar across his throat? He just doesn’t scream it out to everyone. It’s scary for us to deal with.”

Yes, it seems David survived a bout with thyroid cancer.

Jenelle went on to reveal that his treatment was long and difficult–and his family offered nothing in the way of support:

“He had radiation therapy,” Evans wrote, adding:

“Of course none of his family was there helping him either going through this. If you only knew the truth.”

Fans were aware that Eason has endured a difficult past, but this is the first time that Jenelle has spoken about his battle with cancer.

She did not go into detail with regard to how long ago the treatment took place.

Currently, Jenelle and David are going through yet another difficult time.

It was revealed today that Jenelle has accused her mother, Barbara Eason, of abusing her son Jace.

Jenelle called the police on Barbara last month, but no arrests were made.

Lindsay Lohan Stuns Fans, Sparks Plastic Surgery Rumors With “New Face”

Lindsay Lohan has gone through a number of changes over the years.

We’ve seen her transform from a Disney child star to a tabloid trainwreck to a Angelina Jolie aspirant who might also be a spy for the Turkish government.

While her latest metamorphosis might not be as bizarre as that last one (Seriously, how is there not more talk about her possible espionage?), it’s still throwing fans for a loop:

That’s LiLo at a Madrid Fashion Week last night, and as you can see, she looks a little … different.

Lindsay’s face has changed almost as much as her persona over the years, but never this quickly in this short a period of time.

Naturally the plastic surgery rumors are have been flying fast and furious on social media in the hours since these pics went public.

Lohan’s fans are hoping she’s just the victim of some botched temporary filler work, while her detractors …

… Well, her detractors are having a bit of a field day.

“OMG like wtf. what is wrong with lilo’s face??” one fan tweeted.

“I am literally on my knees praying for lindsay to not let another needle near her face,” remarked another.

The consensus seems to be that Lindsay went under the needle, not the knife, and thus, her face should eventually return to normal.

Evan so, the social roasting has been particularly brutal:

“OK question for lindsay. are you making that face on purpose or is that eyebrow the result of bad botox?” wrote one Instagram follower.

“omg that brow tho. maybe it’s just me but I think 31 is a little too young for all these fillers,” commented another.

Not surprisingly, the actress (if we can still call her that) has yet to respond to the rumors about her transformation.

This isn’t the first time rumors about Lohan getting plastic surgery have circulated online, but we’ve never been confronted with such clear visual evidence.

Here’s hoping Lindsay will cool it on the fillers going foward.’

That Mean Girls sequel is never gonna happen if Cady’s face is frozen in a permanent expression of horror.

(It’s never gonna happen anyway, but we like to offer LiLo some encouragement from time to time.)


Britney Spears Stuns with Raw Vocals, Covers “Something to Talk About” Live!

Over the weekend, did you notice some folks on Twitter talking about how 2017 had been saved? Or at least just tweeting excitedly about Britney Spears?

No, Britney didn't drop a new album — but she did wow crowds and blow minds with her raw vocals on stage, covering Bonnie Raitt's "(Let's Give Them) Something to Talk About." Because she's Britney and she's amazing.

And we of course have the video for you below. We're not monsters.

We've heard Britney's raw vocals for "Toxic" before, but we're always here for Britney's amazing voice.

Before Britney sings the cover, however, she addresses her adoring audience.

Microphone in hand instead of wearing a headset, she speaks:

"The press and the media my whole life, because one minute they tear you down, they're really horrible, and the next minute, you're on top of the world."

Unfortunately, highs and lows like that that sometime describes life.

But it sucks to be described that way, as a celebrity.

Especially as a celebrity who became famous as a teen minor.

Rumors have long accused her of lipsyncing everything.

Britney quashed the lipsyncing rumors, pretty aggressively, this summer.

Britney has also long battled boob job rumors, though expert surgeons have agreed that she looks very natural.

(Sometimes, outfits are just really flattering to your boobs, folks)

"But, I've never really spoke about, you know?"

She's absolutely communicated about it.

(Like, the song "Piece of Me" was very blatantly about her and her relationship with critics and the tabloid press, folks)

If you're expecting Britney to go on a rant about unfair coverage … that's not really her style.

She's totally just segueing into her song.

Which she's about to make abundantly clear.

"I'm a Southern girl, I'm from Louisiana. I'm from the South, and I like to keep it real."

A lot of people forget Britney's roots. But this is just more segue.

"And I just want to make sure I keep having you mother f–kers something to talk about, OK?"

To be clear, she's not insulting her audience, who cheers basically every moment when she isn't talking or singing.

She's not even really insulting people who write about her.

This is just an introduction to her cover of Blues musician Bonnie Raitt's "Something to Talk About."

Essentially, this was just a longer version of saying "This is a story about a girl named Lucky."

To be clear, though, Britney has absolutely given us all something to talk about.

Her raw vocals are totally on point.

Personally, we prefer Britney's original music — from "Crazy" to "Womanizer" to "Make Me," Britney's been wowing us for longer than some of her younger fans have been alive.

(Feel old, yet?)

Anyway, here's the video, so please enjoy:

Britney spears stuns with raw vocals covers something to talk ab

Johnny Depp Pops Up On Pirates Ride as Captain Jack, Stuns Fans at Disneyland!

We've heard the rumors that Johnny Depp is broke, but we figured he was … ya know, Hollywood broke.

Like, he had to limit bathing in calves' blood to once a week, or he was forced to fire his personal sock shopper.

Little did we know, that in order to finance his $ 30,000 a month wine habit, Depp has been reduced to glad-handing with fans at the Happiest Place on Earth, alongside a bunch of sweaty improv class instructors and guys who played a corps on Law & Order once.

We kid, of course.

Depp did pop up on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland yesterday, but not because he's hard up for cash.

In all likelihood, it was part of the studio's effort to promote Pirates of the Caribbean 5: F–k It, Let's Make Another.

But maybe it's just something that Depp does for kicks when he gets bored.

After all, getting black-out, dressing up like Hunter S. Thompson and shooting off large firearms indoors must get old eventually, right?

Anyway, Depp stunned fans of the famous attraction by popping out in full Captain Jack garb and remaining in character as boatloads of tourists passed him by.

Whether you love Johnny or hate him, it's an awfully cool thing for an A-lister actor to do.

Of course, if a movie role made us enough money to afford a freakin' private island (and a 30 grand a month wine habit), you would literally never see us out of costume.

Check out Johnny-as-Jack in the clip below:

Wheel of Fortune Fail Goes Viral, Stuns the Masses

We've documented our share of Wheel of Fortune fails over the years.

Remember the time Pat Sajak actually walked off the set because contestants kept talking about horses for some reason?

Or the time a contestant blew a very easy chance at $ 1 million?

These were both memorable moments, but they pale in comparison to what just transpired on the show for a man named Kevin.

Clearly not a fan of Tennessee Williams (or logic), Kevin was faced with the following puzzle after correctly asking for the letter "C" to be placed on the board:

When he chose to spin the wheel, despite missing just one letter from the answer, Sajak and viewers assumed that Kevin was simply a risk-taker who wanted to increase his pot.

But… nope.

He was just a guy who apparently had never heard of the play "A Streetcar Named Desire."

So he went ahead and guessed the letter "K." Which would have made the final answer "A Streetcar Naked Desire."

After his monumental failure, fellow competitor Lisa swooped in for the victory.

And Twitter was left to react in shock, anger, confusion and humor to what it had witnessed.

"I'm gonna go lie down," wrote one user very simply after explaining what happened on the game show.

Another invoked Joey from Friends:

And another sympathized with poor Kevin:

Was this the greatest mistake in the long-running history of game shows?

It has to be up there, right?

Watch the entire snafu play out below:

Wheel of fortune fail the most shocking of all time
