Charlotte Church Lands in LA Sporting Red Hair and Hideous Floral Pants to Match!

Posted on July 25th, 2011 at 6:14 pm by    

One way to deflect an embarrassing press scandal is to give people something new to talk about. It seems Charlotte Church has gone to great lengths to do just that.

The welsh singer was spotted breezing through LAX last night looking as if she hadn’t a care in the world, sporting a stylish new bob.

But it wasn’t the classy-cut that had everyone staring in her direction, but the garish red-dyed hair and 70’s-styled floral-flared pyjama pants certainly had onlookers a-gasp!

I guess one has to take into consideration that Church had just flown in from the UK with a six-hour delay when photographed; it’s not always easy to look your best after a lengthy flight. Well, Victoria Beckham often pulls it off, but Charlotte didn’t!

Church is no stranger when it comes to controversy, so I guess this could have been an attempt on her part to divert people from talking about THAT ‘underwear around the ankles’ incident. And I reckon with her wearing those hideous paisley pants, she almost pulled it off… I said almost…

Still, there is one consolation…at least her hair color matched the red flowers!

You got to love the cheeky songstress though; Char’ had to publicly apologize last week after reports swirled that her and boyfriend, Jonathan Powell had been engaging in some ‘outside activities’…

This saw Church quickly quashing the rumors by saying she was desperate for the toilet, and after drinking a bottle of wine she claimed all the loos were occupied.

She said: “Regrettably, oh-so regrettably, I had not the time to pull up my rather large pants. I hope I can be forgiven for these antics but, you know, when you’ve gotta go, you’ve gotta go.”

Oh Charlotte, don’t worry girl, we’ve all been there! Right? … OK, so maybe not with knickers around our ankles, but you get my drift…

X Marks the Spot for Gerri!

Posted on June 8th, 2010 at 6:14 am by    

Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell will step in as a guest judge on X Factor while Dannii Minogue is off having her baby, it’s been revealed.

Geri will join show boss Simon Cowell, Irishman Louis Walsh, and Cheryl Cole, as they kick off auditions in Glasgow later this week.

Geri, said: “I love The X Factor!”

An ITV source added: “Simon asked his celebrity pals to join X Factor and they didn’t need asking twice. They’ll all add something new and fresh to the panel.”

Halliwell was previously a judge on Popstars: The Rivals, the very show which discovered X Factor judge Cheryl Cole and her Girls Aloud bandmates, so it’s going to rather interesting to see how those two get on, now that Cole is the bigger star of the two… (Ouch, I didn’t really say that … Did I!?!?)

Other guest judges rumored to be taking part over the coming weeks are Lily Allen, Katy Perry, Natalie Imbruglia and Charlotte Church.
