Peaches Geldof's elder sister Fifi has posted an expletive-laden rant online urging critics to let the tragic socialite rest in peace following the conclusion of an inquest into her death.
Bob Geldof's model/TV presenter daughter passed away in April (14) after a drug overdose, and an investigation into her death, which wrapped up in Kent, England on Wednesday (23Jul14), concluded she had battled heroin addiction for two-and-a-half years.
The news sparked a storm of debate over the 25-year-old mum-of-two, whose 11-month-old son was left alone for up to 17 hours before her body was found, and comparisons to her own mother, Paula Yates, who also died of a heroin overdose when her children were young.
The criticism prompted a furious reaction from Peaches' sister Fifi, who posted an angry message to her Instagram.com page which reads, "Don't keep calm and f**k this and f**k that. F**k you. F**k off." She added in a caption, "Sums it up nicely about how I'm feeling about the viciousness today. Maybe she'll be allowed to RIP."
When another user commented on her posts, calling Peaches "selfish and sad" for taking drugs with her children in the house, Fifi replied, "You've no idea what you are talking about quite frankly. Yet another who has bought into the bulls**t. I'd appreciate you getting the f**k off my page with stuff like that on today of all days."
Rapper Iggy Azalea is set to make her television hosting debut on MTV's fashion series House Of Style. The Fancy hitmaker is bringing her own unique style to the reboot of the popular TV programme, which gives viewers an inside look at the latest trends in fashion.
Azalea shares her excitement for the new gig in a statement which reads: "I am so excited to bring back this iconic show for another generation of teenagers.
"The biggest impact that House of Style had on pop culture is its ability to make fashion fun and interesting to fans who are both diehard fashionistas or not at all."
Over the eight-episode season, Azalea will seek out the latest street style trends and tour music video sets with the likes of Rita Ora and designer Jeremy Scott.
The new House of Style series will premiere in the U.S. on 4 August (14).
Azalea will also co-host the MTV Video Music Awards pre-show on 24 August (14), and the ceremony's fashion recap following the prizegiving.
The popular MTV series originally ran from 1989 to 2000, with supermodel hosts including Cindy Crawford, Rebecca Romijn and Molly Sims.
When it comes to romance, nobody's smoother than John Stamos. He made everyone swoon as the guitar-playing, child-rearing Jesse Katsopolis on Full House, he sang and danced his way into their hearts in Bye Bye Birdie, and he probably beat everyone out for Prom King in high school. He can even make yogurt seem attractive. Such is the power of Stamos. If you're looking for a way to win over the hearts of millions, there's no better role model.
Which is exactly why the producers of My Man Is a Loser chose him to play the ultimate playboy-turned-marriage counselor. The film centers around Marty and Paul (Michael Rapaport and Bryan Callen, respectively), two family men who turn to Stamos' character, Mike, for guidance after their marriages start to fall apart. However, their plan to sweep their wives off their feet backfires, as Marty and Paul 2.0 might actually be worse than the original model. Turns out Mike still has a few lessons of his own to learn, and bartender Clarissa (Tika Sumpter) might be just the person to teach him.
In this exclusive clip from the film, Mike guides his buddies through the three Ls of communication - look, listen, and learn - by having them uphold a conversation with three strangers. Apparently it's his talent for paying attention, along with his jet black hair and winning smile, that helps Mike win over all the ladies. Although, if we're being honest, his tenure with Jesse and the Rippers probably helps.
My Man is a Loser will be released in theaters and on VOD on July 25.

7. Every once in a while, she throws in a screen shot for emphasis. Can't be mad at that.

"I recommend hiding for a good year and having no pregnancy style. That's what I recommend. If you can do it, hide. Never leave the house... That's really my recommendation. Wear a huge blanket." Kim Kardashian's advice for looking good while pregnant is to avoid going out in public.
Ever since she used the term "conscious uncoupling," Gwyneth Paltrow has had her personal life under a microscope. But Paltrow is no stranger to oversharing, bringing the details of her lavish lifestyle to her weekly GOOP newsletter (much to the ire of working moms everywhere). Thankfully for celebrities like Paltrow, there is more than one bright side to splitting up.
That's why even in the midst of a very public divorce, GP is still sitting pretty -- compared to the rest of us, at least. Here's why your day-to-day just doesn't measure up:
You have to work all year round. Paltrow has said she only makes one movie a year, for which she cuts a multi-million dollar paycheck. How many vacation days have you saved up so far?
You don't have time to know what "macrobiotic" means.Following Paltrow's customized diet would drain both your bank account and your sanity.
You wear "real" clothes.Your monthly clothing budget looks more like your water bill than your mortgage. Paltrow is BFFs with A-list designers like Stella McCartney.
Your gifts suck.When the holidays roll around, you and your girlfriends play white elephant with a budget in the double digits. In her 2013 GOOP gift guide, Paltrow recommended a set of PJs for your BF that would set you back almost $450 -- before the custom monogram.
Your personal trainer is your DVD player.And by making house calls to check your form, you mean your toddler climbing on your back during plank. Paltrow is a Tracy Anderson protege and her business partner.
Your self renewal process is (fingers crossed) a morning shower.Paltrow famously endures multiple detoxes each year to heal and cleanse -- every day is a detox for you because you don't have time to eat until dinner.
You're still trying to get a reservation at Babbo.When Paltrow wanted to learn the finer nuances of Italian cooking, she went on a road trip with chef and owner Mario Batali.GIPHY
You and your girlfriends enjoy a cocktail or two.Paltrow told the The Guardian in 2006 she didn't "like" drunk women and had no "drunk friends." Guess you'll be stuck hanging out at those lame places for drunk people: bars, clubs, concerts, events, etc. (Okay, maybe this is a reason your life is better.)
You only have one closet.For someone like Paltrow, who is constantly acquiring new pieces for her wardrobe, space is at a premium. So she calls in the experts at Vault Couture to catalogue and store her garments off-site. By browsing her online "vault" she can select items for rapid global delivery whenever she wants. Yes, she basically has the Clueless closet.
Your vacations are anything but transformative.Even though she described the accommodations at Mii amo Spa in Sedona, Arizona as "nothing to write home about" in the December 11, 2013 issue of GOOP, she still suggests shelling out between $2,265 and $2,500 for a three-day therapeutic journey in a double-occupancy room. Per person.
You're stuck living within your means.Perhaps justifying her anything-but-normal life, Paltrow told Elle UK in 2009 "I am who I am. I can't pretend to be somebody who makes $25,000 a year." We could give her some tips.
You've consumed your share of subpar dairy.At the iTunes Festival in 2011, Paltrow declared, "I'd rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a tin." Who knew Cheese Whiz was a gateway drug?
If this sounds like you, don't fret. At least no one has to know.

An embroidered bodysuit Beyonce wears onstage during her joint tour with Jay Z took designers at top fashion house Givenchy almost 1,000 hours to bejewel by hand.
Givenchy's creative director Riccardo Tisci came up with the R&B beauty's costumes for the superstar couple's ongoing On The Run tour, drawing inspiration for Beyonce's stage looks from 1950s pin-ups Bettie Page and Brigitte Bardot.
However one of her sexy outfits, a leotard he named "Gothic Queen", required an unbelievable amount of handiwork.
He tells People magazine, "The embroidered bodysuit took almost 1,000 hours to make at the Haute Couture house in Paris. They hand-stitched each of the 3D stones, crystals, stars and paillettes one by one."
Tisci also reveals Jay Z was very hands-on when it came to checking out his wife's final looks. The style guru says, "He came to the (costume) fitting. His eye is so sharp. He loved everything."
Kendall Jenner wants us all to know that when she drops it like it's hot, it's all in the name of couture fashion. The young model took to Instagram to share a clip from her new Givenchy ad:
Creative Director of the fashion house Ricardo Tisci was apparently "inspired by the idea of inviting a few select models to a private party." And yes, this is exactly how you'd expect such a party to look. Here's the ad in full.

Clint Eastwood, famous for gritty westerns, intimidating squints and asking punks if they’re feeling lucky, wouldn’t be the first person you’d think of to direct a glitzy movie musical. He’s about as far removed from the world of production numbers and intricate choreography as you could possibly get, so it’s something of a surprise that he’s the director bringing the hit musical Jersey Boys to the big screen. Though the film is based on the lives and careers of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, the film’s real star power is behind the camera, which should help it stand out in an unusually crowded field of movie musicals.
Though it's been a few years since we've seen a full-blown spectacular on screen, 2014 has three iconic musicals receiving the Hollywood treatment. After Jersey Boys has gotten moviegoers warmed up, December will bring a new, modern take on Annie as well as the star-studded film adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's iconic Into the Woods. But which of these upcoming musicals are the real show-stoppers, and which are you better off skipping? We've run down the year in movie musicals, along with their potential for greatness, both critically and commercially.
Jersey Boys Opens: June 20 What It’s About: The story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, and their journey from being four guys harmonizing under a streetlight to becoming one of the biggest bands in the world, including the gambling debts, mob threats and personal crises that almost stood in their way. Star Power: Director Clint Eastwood and Christopher Walken in a supporting role. The main cast is made up of primarily unknowns, although John Lloyd Young won a Tony Award for playing Frankie back in 2006. How Good It Looks: Thus far, it’s gotten mixed reviews, with many critics taking issue with its by-the-book approach to an interesting, conflict-filled story. That weird, grey filter that Eastwood uses can’t be helping matters, either. Box Office Potential: The film hasn’t gotten a lot of promotion ahead of its release, but the Four Seasons are a recognizable enough name that Jersey Boys should be able to pull in a decent amount of money. The show’s still going strong on Broadway 8 years later, after all. Awards Potential: It’s being released too far from awards season, and the early reviews aren’t strong enough to make Jersey Boys a real contender, but we’d be surprised if Eastwood or Young’s name didn’t come up in conversation once or twice - but only once or twice. Number Worth Waiting For: “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You,” of course.
Annie Opens: December 19 What It’s About: Business tycoon Benjamin Stacks takes in Annie, a foster child who has been living in the evil Miss Hannigan’s orphanage since she was born, in order to help his Mayoral campaign. Star Power: A pretty star-studded cast, including Jamie Foxx, Cameron Diaz, Rose Byrne, and of course, Quvenzhane Wallis. How Good It Looks: Every production of Annie lives and dies by its hero and its villain, and while Wallis seems to be a charming and entertaining Annie, Diaz’s Miss Hannigan seems downright terrible. This is definitely a film that can go either way. Box Office Potential: A beloved, classic, family-friendly musical with a Christmas release date and a big-name cast? It’s probably going to rake in the cash. Awards Potential: Very little. Unless it’s animated, the Academy doesn’t really pay attention to child-friendly films, and anyway, this Annie is more about spectacle than substance. Number Worth Waiting For: “Hard Knock Life.” We’d say “Easy Street,” which everyone knows if the best number in the show, but it’s probably best to wait and see some more of Diaz’s Miss Hannigan before we get too excited for it.
Into the Woods Opens: Christmas What It’s About: Set in a fairy-tale forest, a witch attempts to teach various characters important lessons about life and love. Star Power: Off the charts: Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Chris Pine, Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt and Christine Baranski, to name just a few. How Good It Looks: Not much has been released about the film yet, so it’s hard to tell, although Streep does look fantastic as the Witch. Box Office Potential: If the A-List cast or theater pedigree doesn’t bring in a big audience, the massive marketing push that Disney will inevitably roll out should do the trick. Expect this one to do very well with moviegoers. Awards Potential: Of the three films on this list, Into the Woods has the best shot at any awards recognition, even if it’s just because Streep gets nominated every time she leaves the house. We’d be surprised if Sondheim’s new music doesn’t become a major contender in the Best Original Song race, and depending on how well the film is received, Kendrick, Blunt and director Rob Marshall – all former nominees – could have a decent shot at a nomination as well. Number Worth Waiting For: “No One is Alone,” which is not only the most well-known song from the show, but will also be sung by Kendrick, everyone’s dream best friend.
Rap mogul Dr. Dre has listed his massive Los Angeles mansion for $35 million (£20.9 million), just weeks after buying supermodel Gisele Bundchen's former home in Brentwood, California. The hip-hop heavyweight and his wife, Nicole Young, are leaving behind the estate in the Hollywood Hills as they prepare to move into the $40 million (£25 million) French-style property previously owned by the Brazilian beauty and her athlete husband Tom Brady.
Dr. Dre first purchased the Hollywood Hills house in 2011 for $15.4 million (£9.2 million), and the property boasts six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a view of the ocean and a large infinity pool.
The rapper bought Bundchen's former abode just days after Apple bosses announced they had acquired his Beats Electronics and Beats Music brand for $3 billion.
