Britney Spears wishes Kate Middleton would wear her lingerie line
Oops, she did it again. Last night, Britney Spears was in London to launch her lingerie line, Intimate Britney Spears and reporters asked her who her dream celebrity to model the lingerie collection would be. The 32 year-old's answer left everybody by surprise.

"I would love to see Kate Middleton in my underwear designs," Britney said, "That would be splendid."

If there is anything that the Duchess of Cambridge will wear, it's definitely not lingerie in public. "I want to send her one in every piece so she will have plenty to choose from," the Perfume singer added. It looks like Brit has it planned out. You better work, Brit.

Lena Dunham gives some sisterhood advice
A risk-taker, writer, actress, feminist and now Lena Dunham is an agony aunt. In the lead-up to the launch of her new book, Not That Kind of Girl due to release on September 30, Lena has put up a 12-part mini-series on YouTube discussing dilemmas in the lives of her female fans, shot from her quirky cartoon-y office. From topics such as bad sex to plus size fashion, Lena's words of wisdom are heartwarming, considerate and constructive.

Our most favourite is the plus size woe in which a college student struggles with her weight and low self-esteem though she has been told she's pretty. Lena's words, "For me confidence comes when I'm feeling happy with my habits, feeling like I can be proud with my life. Like, I read a book this week, ate food that I knew that's going to give me energy, I slept enough, and I know that I am the best version of myself that I can be… And that doesn't mean I'm losing 30lb, it means I'm taking care of myself and treating myself like a precious cargo."

Lena just nailed it. Watch the video below:

Kathy Griffin may replace Joan Rivers on Fashion Police
The passing of Joan Rivers has saddened Hollywood and her fans all over the world. But the show must go on for E!'s Fashion Police as Joan's daughter, Melissa Rivers, who is an executive producer has given her blessings for the show to go on without her mother. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it seems that comedian Kathy Griffin is in the running to replace Joan's position.

We'll find out when Fashion Police returns to air next January for the Golden Globes.

Jessica Simpson shuns her fat shaming critics
Nobody likes to be fat shamed, celebrity or not, and it looks like some of those hateful words have affected Jessica Simpson. Jessica, who has been struggling with her weight, admitted to Today that the shaming hurts and her response?

"It wasn't really my priority to please the public and make them feel like I'm supposed to be looking like I did when I was 25." When asked about the added pressure of losing her baby weight fast to maintain her "sex symbol" status, she dismissed the assumption that sexy means skinny. "I don't think that I wasn't still a sex symbol with the weight," she said. "To my husband, I was still extremely sexy."

Now, thanks to the critics and Weight Watchers (she's now a spokesperson for them), Jessica is as empowered as ever. You go, Jessica. 

Flaunt it. Show the haters it's your body, not theirs.
