Rappers Nicki Minaj and Pitbull attended the 2011 American Music Awards Nominees Press Conference at JW Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles yesterday (Oct. 11). Nicki looked extremely bored during the press conference. She was nominated for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist and Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album, while Pitbull picked up nods for Favorite Latin Music Artist and Favorite Pop or Rock Male Artist.

Pitbull, whose "Give Me Everything" lyrics "Locked up like Lindsay Lohan" upset the actress, plans to fly a bevy of Miami beauties to perform behind him during the telecast.

It's hard to get 60 women from Miami on a plane after they were partying the night before and bring that vibe out there," he joked. "But that's definitely what we're looking for: We're looking for a lot of energy, something very sexy, sophisticated, powerful — and get ready."

Ciara was spotted at the Givenchy Spring / Summer 2012 Fashion Show in Paris wearing jewelry by Carrera y Carrera and Hellmuth. As you can see, Ciara loves the trendy look of the jewelry.

Musician-turned-fashion designer Kanye West had good reason to be a little nervous at the debut of his DW Ready to Wear Spring / Summer 2012 show during Paris Fashion Week on Saturday (Oct. 1) in Paris, France.

Barely minutes after his collection debuted at Lycee Henri IV, the national media and bloggers were already tearing it to shreds.

Forbes fashion critic Blue Carreon suggested that the collection consisted of "clothes for Kanye's tribe", adding that they were for "women who have to attend the Grammy awards in statement making clothes that reveal a lot of skin."

“Next season Kanye should get a tailor so clothes might fit. Models swimming in some looks," wrote the NY Times.

"Necklines plunged so precariously that they seemed a personal shout-out to J-Lo...there were lots and lots of tight leather pants," wrote Heard On The Runway blog.

But one fashion critic, Lindsay Lohan, whose clothing line West once compared to “9/11 for celebrities doing fashion,” was more forgiving. She flew to Paris just to attend Kanye's debut. LiLo sat in the front row and laughed all the way through the debut.
