Athletics: Golden London run has triumphant Pearson eyeing Tokyo

MELBOURNE (Reuters) – Australia’s Sally Pearson will reward herself with “volumes” of greasy food after winning her second 100 meters hurdles world championship but plans to keep herself in top shape in the long-term for a tilt at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Pearson’s brilliant win at the London Stadium on Saturday capped two years of injury heartbreak and made her Australia’s most decorated track athlete of the modern era.

The 2012 London Olympic champion was denied a chance to defend her title last year at Rio due to a hamstring injury but hopes her body can stand up for Tokyo in 2020, when she would be just shy of her 34th birthday.

“Of course, you always think about Tokyo,” the rejuvenated hurdler told state radio ABC.

“I’ve always want to go to three Olympics. Missing out on Rio was heartbreaking but obviously it was there for a reason.

“As I’ve said, I’ve got to look after my body. Definitely (running at) the Commonwealth Games next year. And who knows what will happen after that?

“Tokyo is only three years away … I just have to listen to my body and be smart about it.”

After missing out on Rio, Pearson coached her own way back to the top, reasoning that after multiple injury setbacks, no-one knew her body like she did.

She will cast off the unflinching self-discipline for a brief period to eat what she wants before plotting a path to victory at next year’s Commonwealth Games, where she will be the headline attraction near her home on the Gold Coast.

“Volumes of food …. I like to reward myself with greasy food,” said Pearson, who won her first 100m hurdles world title at Daegu in 2011 and grabbed a silver at the Moscow championships two years later.

Also a silver medalist at the 2008 Beijing Games, Pearson’s third individual world championship medal surpassed the record of iconic Aboriginal sprinter Cathy Freeman, who won back-to-back 400m titles in 1997-99 and clinched gold at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

A week after mourning the death of Betty Cuthbert, the only athlete to win 100, 200 and 400m Olympic golds, local media hailed Pearson as Australia’s “latest golden girl”.

“Cuthbert was the center of a much cherished and glorious part of Australian sporting history,” prominent local pundit Patrick Smith wrote in The Australian newspaper.

“That spirit lives on. It is indestructible. It lives on in Sally Pearson who sometimes has a fragility that is a decoy for the toughness that lines her body and soul.”

Zendaya Is the Star of Bruno Mars’ Super Trippy ‘Versace on the Floor’ Video

Who can forget the time Zendaya proved herself a pretty impressive Bruno Mars impersonator when she performed “24K Magic” on Lip Sync Battle from earlier this summer? The Spider-Man actress pulled out all the stops: The outfit! The hair! The spot-on, signature Bruno dance moves! Her rendition was transformative, to say the least, and confirmed that she’s a massive fan of Mr. Mars. (I mean, who isn’t?) Well, the appreciation is mutual, it seems. Zendaya has now graduated from Bruno Mars impersonator to Bruno Mars video star.

The 31-year-old singer premiered his video for “Versace on the Floor” Sunday night during the 2017 Teen Choice Awards, and it stars—wait for it—Zendaya. And we’re living for it.

The video is five-and-a-half minutes of trippy, sparkly goodness. It opens with Zendaya and Bruno giving each other SeXy~* glances in front of their adjacent hotel rooms. Things escalate from there. (TBH, this intro feels very similar to Britney Spears’s iconic commercial for her fragrance, Curious, and I will literally die and go to heaven if that’s not a coincidence.) Zendaya spends the entire video dancing in her posh hotel room as Bruno loudly plays “Versace on the Floor” on the piano next door. (Sidebar: What bougie hotel room has a piano in the middle of it?! That’s the definition of l-u-x-u-r-y.)

This reveal is further proof Zendaya was the star of the 2017 TCAs: Earlier in the evening, she gave a very inspiring speech about youth empowerment while accepting the award for Choice Movie Actress. Shortly after, she took to Instagram to share the news of her star turn in Mars’ latest video. “When the flyest man out here calls you for one of the flyest songs make it happen,” she wrote. Indeed.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom Spotted Getting Cozy After Split

Six months after announcing they split, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom were spotted together at an Ed Sheeran concert Saturday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday.

The two dated for 10 months before calling it quits in February, but several concertgoers tweeted they saw the pair holding hands and kissing while at Sheeran’s concert.

They both wore similar black baseball-style hats with Perry’s covering her blonde pixie hair as she stayed close to Bloom. She also wore a red bomber jacket, and leather black skirt.

One fan posted photos of the two sitting close to each other, tweeting Perry, 32, walked out of the concert with Bloom, 40, following close behind with a group of friends.

Another fan on Twitter wrote that she saw the two backstage walking together and holding hands.

At the time of their split, the pair issued a statement to PEOPLE saying they are “taking respectful, loving space” from each other after being spotted at the annual Vanity Fair Oscars party.

An onlooker told PEOPLE at the time that the duo didn’t interact at the party much except for posing for a photo together and mingling with their own friends.

At the time, a Perry source said that over the last few weeks, the relationship “just became more and more work to make it work,” said the source. “Because this wasn’t something permanent, it just became time to take a break.”

“Katy didn’t spend much time with Orlando,” the source said. “They got together for a photo, but that was about it.”

In April, they reunited briefly at a party in West Hollywood. A source told PEOPLE that “Orlando and Katy had a quick hello and a brief chat.”

“They weren’t too friendly and hung out with separate friends at the party,” the source continued.

Kylie Jenner Doesn’t Think People Take Her Seriously as a CEO

Earning respect in the workplace can be difficult at any age. But for Kylie Jenner, becoming a CEO of her own cosmetics company at 19 has lead to a handful of struggles with her employees-turned-friends.

On Sunday night’s Life of Kylie, Jenner, now 20, detailed her life as a businesswoman in charge of Kylie Cosmetics and revealed that she grapples with taking authority over her team. Mom Kris Jenner weighs in, and also helps her youngest daughter deal with the increase of fake Kylie Lip Kits populating the market and getting people sick.

The third episode of Jenner’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians spin-off also saw the reality star attend a galactic cowboy themed birthday party with BFF Jordyn Woods, get caught in Los Angeles traffic and admit to staying out until 6 a.m. But ultimately, Jenner continued to struggle with how to be an effective boss at such a young age — read on for some of her quotes about her business approach and how she got to be the beauty mogul she is today.

On having to grow up quickly…
“The majority of 19-year-olds are still in the trying to figure it out stage or college. Me, it’s like, major responsibilities. I feel like a little old woman stuffed in a 19-year-old’s body.”

On working with friends…
“It’s not hard to have a relationship with the people who work around me because we didn’t start out up friends. We just became cool cause we’re always with each other. But I’m not like calling [her makeup artist] Ariel like, ‘Let’s go to the mall.’ We keep it professional. We understand our positions.”

On the inspiration for her cosmetics line…
“Ever since I was probably 15 I’ve been obsessed with lipstick and I was insecure about my lips, so I went to a store and I bought every single lip liner that looks liked the color of my lips, so people didn’t think I was wearing lip liner. And I just like would over-line my lips as much as I could. But I could never find a lip liner and a lipstick that were the perfect match, so that’s how Kylie Lip Kits started. I never imagined that Kylie Cosmetics would grow to what is has. Being my own CEO has definitely changed my confidence. Having Kylie Cosmetics keeps me going. When I first launched Kylie Cosmetics, I ordered a really small amount and I was almost certain it wasn’t going to sell out. My mom calmed me down and was like, ‘It’s gonna be fine, Kylie. You’re gonna do great.’ None of us knew how big it was going to be.”

On how social media has helped her business…
“Social media has been a really big blessing to me because I don’t pay for advertising. All the advertising I do is literally on Snapchat and Instagram.”

On counterfeit Kylie Lip Kits…
“A lot of people think I’m not involved, but it’s really important to me to have control over my things. Sometimes I see tweets like, ‘This is the worst thing I’ve ever bought.’ And I’m like, ‘Oh my God!’ And I look into it and it’s totally a fake lip kit. I mean, I can tell. I’m thinking about all the kids thinking that this is my product and that it’s safe. Their lips are swelling up and they’re getting blisters and their lips are getting stuck together because there’s glue or gasoline in it. It’s just really important to me that something gets done will all of the fake Kylie Lip Kits and the fake products. I just feel a responsibility to take matters into my own hands and at least see this stuff myself. I just don’t want people to think like this is a representation of my product and who I am.”

On Kris recommending she stand up to her team…
“My mom has been worried about who is surround myself with for my entire life. There’s bigger things in life [than] to worry about someone’s attitude. My mom lets things get to her. Like someone speaks to her the wrong way and she’ll talk about it for like two hours.”
Kylie Jenner/Instagram

On balancing work relationships with friendships…
“I generally have a lot of patience unless you’re affecting my time. I definitely had to learn how to balance between friendship and business, just trying to take on the boss role and standing up for myself because people do take advantage of you. I do have limits as the boss. I hate conflict, but I also learned you can’t really let people working around you get comfortable because that’s when you get taken advantage of. It’s happened way too many times with my family.”

On getting respect for her position…
“I had the opportunity to make like the coolest makeup line that I’ve always dreamed of. It’s really my only passion. I learned a lot though and just have experienced things that people my age do not even know how to handle. I do feel like people don’t take me seriously as a businesswoman because of my age and my reputation. But I do think they’re starting to. I like to prove people wrong.”

Maroon 5 Receives Decade Award

And they will be loved!

Maroon 5 received the Decade Award at the 2017 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night.

The group eschewed the traditional long speech for the big award, instead joking about how old they are (Levine is 38) and teasing the crowd with a hint that their next album will be their “final” record.

After a brief pause, Levine laughed and said, “Just kidding. We are never going to go away!”

The accolade celebrates the advancement of the band – lead vocalist Adam Levine, keyboardist and rhythm guitarist Jesse Carmichael, bassist Mickey Madden, lead guitarist James Valentine, drummer Matt Flynn and keyboardist PJ Morton – over the past 10 years.

Teen Choice honors the year’s biggest names in television, music, film, fashion and comedy. Category winners are then selected by teens themselves, who choose new award categories and favorites from the past.

Up-and-coming rising California rapper KYLE opened the show with an electrifying performance of his 3x-Platinum single “iSpy” alongside Lil Yachty, who then performed his own new single, “Forever Young.” Rita Ora then closed the performance with her hit single “Your Song.”

Hackers release more HBO episode shows: report

(Reuters) – Hackers have released more unaired episodes of popular HBO shows but the latest leak did not include anything on the hit series “Game of Thrones,” the Associated Press reported on Sunday.

The hackers, who broke into HBO’s computer network and have released stolen information for several weeks, provided more unaired episodes, including the popular show “Curb Your Enthusiasm, ” which returns in October.

They also leaked episodes of “Insecure,” “Ballers” and “The Deuce,” according to the Associated Press.

Time Warner Inc’s (TWX.N) HBO said Sunday in an emailed statement that it was “not in communication with the hacker, and we’re not going to comment every time a new piece of information is released.”

“It has been widely reported that there was a cyber incident at HBO,” it said. “The hacker may continue to drop bits and pieces of stolen information in an attempt to generate media attention. That’s a game we’re not going to participate in.”

HBO acknowledged the hack earlier this summer. It said the thieves had been leaking stolen materials and asking for a multi-million-dollar ransom.

The hack came at a sensitive time for HBO parent Time Warner as it awaits regulatory approval to sell itself to AT&T Inc (T.N) in a $85.4 billion deal announced in October.

Chris Pratt has stepped back into the public eye after he announced his separation from wife Anna Faris.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 actor, 38, attended Sunday’s Teen Choice Awards at the Galen Center in Los Angeles, where he is both presenting an award alongside his Guardians costar Zoë Saldana and won the surfboard for choice action movie actor and choice si-fi movie actor.

Pratt wore a casual outfit of jeans and leather jacket and was noticeably not wearing his wedding ring when he accepted his award. The actor joked about the lies he had to tell when he first moved to Hollywood before giving thanks to his “Lord and savior Jesus Christ” for getting him where he is today.

The couple’s separation came after eight years of marriage. Pratt and Faris, 40, first met on the set of Take Me Home Tonight in 2007 and got engaged a year later before marrying in summer 2009.

Sunday’s awards show was not the first time Pratt has been spotted without his wedding ring. Two weeks before announcing the split on Facebook, Pratt was in “great spirits” at the premiere and after-party for his former Parks and Recreation costar Aubrey Plaza‘s new movie Ingrid Goes West.

“I was surprised by how he looked to actually be having fun, and that he was there voluntarily,” a partygoer told PEOPLE at the time, saying the star “was friendly, outgoing and playful” during the festivities.

Watch Bruno Mars’ ‘Versace on the Floor’ Video With Zendaya

Bruno Mars puts Spider-Man: Homecoming star Zendaya under his spell in his transfixing new video for “Versace on the Floor,” the slow jam single off the singer’s 24K Magic.

In the video, Mars and Zendaya play apartment neighbors that give each other flirty glances in the hallway. As Mars sings “Versace on the Floor” in his own purple-lit pad, his music has an quasi-magical effect on Zendaya next door, making her gown unzip telekinetically while she grooves to the 24K Magic single seeping through the wall.

The video ends with Zendaya’s gown literally hitting the floor and a “The End” screen accompanied by a knock on the door.

“Versace on the Floor” follows Mars’ 24K Magic videos for “That’s What I Like” and the title track.

As Mars previously told Rolling Stone, he recorded at least six different versions of “Versace on the Floor,” including a lounge-y “poolside version” and a more “epic” take before settling on the album version. “We’re painting this picture – both in silk, I’m promising the world. But I’m not singing. This is supposed to be a big ballad on the album, but I’m not giving it to ’em! If we’re gonna really, dramatically slow things down, I’ve got to be singing some shit,” Mars said. Mars also dropped a David Guetta remix of “Versace on the Floor” in July.

On Saturday, Mars announced that he would donate $1 million from his Detroit-area concert to an organization fighting the Flint water crisis.

Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus Hit the Beach in Costa Rica

Life’s a beach for Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus. The new couple was spotted soaking up the sun and spending some quality time together at a beach in Costa Rica on Thursday, August 10. 

In the photos, Kruger, 41, wore a black, one-piece bathing suit with an open back that showed off her toned figure as she sat on the sand and took a dip in the water. 

Her partner, 48, hit the water wearing a full wet suit and surfed the Costa Rican waves while she looked on from the shore.

The couple have been maintaining a long-distance relationship because of their demanding work schedules. The Walking Dead star has been busy filming the AMC zombie hit in Atlanta, Georgia, while the German actress was shooting JT Leroy in Canada, so a romantic getaway in Central America served as the perfect place to reunite.

Reedus and Kruger met when they costarred in the 2015 movie Sky, and were spotted showing major PDA in March when they were seen kissing in New York City after leaving his place in the East Village.

The relationship is the first for the actress after splitting with her boyfriend of 10 years, Joshua Jackson, in July 2016. Reedus has a son, Mingus, with supermodel Helena Christensen and was previously linked to Courtney Love and Walking Dead costars Laurie Holden and Emily Kinney.
