M.I.A. opts to wear burqa to Scream Awards

When it comes time to decide between the safe fashion choice and the headline-creating option, it's not a surprise that M.I.A. would choose the latter.

The musician showed up at Spike TV's 2010 Scream Awards over the weekend wearing a burqa, a head-to-toe ensemble worn by some Muslim women. Even before M.I.A. decided to wear the outfit, burqas were making news because of a ban that will soon come into effect in France.

M.I.A.’s version was colorfully strewn with flowers and hearts along with the phrase “I love you."

Whatever fashion statement M.I.A. was aiming to make, she chose to wear a different eye-catching outfit for her performance, which included a blue wig and some very M.C. Hammer-esque pink pants. You can see it for yourself when the Scream Awards airs on Spike tonight at 9 p.m.

Willow Smith on Lady Gaga: She's a free girl, baby

If you thought Will Smith was an international superstar, get ready for his daughter Willow. The 9-year-old has become a mini music sensation thanks to her infectious new single, "Whip My Hair."

In the buzzed about video, which premiered Monday, Willow sports a heart-shaped hairstyle and enters a silent, stark white lunchroom before shaking things up by releasing her braids, dipping them in paint, and well, whipping her hair back and forth.

It's all about Kim on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'

It's all about Kim on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'

Tell me “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fans: Am I the only one who would be totally content to watch an entire episode of just Kandi commenting on Kim’s foolishness?

That’s almost what we got with this week’s episode. It was made all the better thanks to Kandi’s deadpan delivery of her opinions about Kim who, along with Sweetie (really, that’s Kim’s assistant’s name), traveled to Palm Springs to perform at the White Party.

Okay, it does feel a little wrong to type the word “perform” to describe what Kim did. She basically walked around the stage to “Tardy for the Party” while trying to avoid a wardrobe malfunction as hot bodied dudes gyrated about. Good times.

"It means owning who you are and being compassionate and knowing when you've made a mistake and not repeating it," Doherty added. "And, also not being afraid to kick some ass and take names."
