Reality TV personality EJ Johnson was spotted on the Upper East Side of Manhattan wearing the same mosaic print shawl/scarf as fashionista Kim Kardashian.

    Beyonce Visual Album

    You can always tell when an entertainer has run out of ideas to keep her sinking career afloat. She resorts to cheapening herself with public displays of partial nudity such as the appearance made by Beyonce Knowles-Carter at her album release party at the SVA Theater in NYC on Sunday. Jaws dropped at the sight of Beyonce wearing a skintight, see through Tom Ford minidress that left very little to the imagination. Rumor has it that the dress was originally designed for bad girl Miley Cyrus to wear during the recent 2013 AMAs. But her handlers reportedly nixed the dress because they deemed it too risqué for the 21-year-old. How sad for Bey if that's true.

    Music producer Kanye West claims his future wife, Kim Kardashian, is more "intriguing" and "influential" than first lady Michelle Obama.

    West, 36, made the controversial statements in a new interview with On Air with Ryan Seacrest, this week. West is still insulted that Vogue magazine cut Kim out of a photo featuring him at the MET Costume Gala earlier this year. He is also peeved that Vogue Editor-in-chief Anna Wintour passed Kim over for a coveted cover.

    "There’s no way Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be on the cover of Vogue,” he whined. “She’s like the most intriguing woman right now. She’s got Barbara Walters calling her like everyday.”

    Ciara covers Paper magazine

    The saying goes: "Good artists borrow, great artists steal." It seems that songbird Ciara borrowed some elements from Jennifer Lopez's August 2013 W magazine cover for her August 2013 cover of PAPER magazine. Both ladies wear sultry fishnet that leave nothing to the imagination. Ciara flexed her muscles in Christian Siriano and Natalie Joos sheer top, while J-Lo looked simply smashing in a Gucci dress on the W cover. Ciara completed her outfit with a pair of exotic animal print Christian Louboutins. So I gotta ask: who wore it worse?
