Will Smith's 13-year-old daughter, Willow Smith raised a few eyebrows this week when a photo of her in bed with a topless 20-year-old actor hit Instagram on Tuesday. The young man pictured is Moises Arias, an actor known for his role as Rico on Hannah Montana. The black and white photo shows the teenager lying down on the bed, while Arias who is shirtless is sitting up behind her. Arias deleted the photo after receiving negative comments but the photo had already been shared by other Instagram users.

Arias is friends with Will Smith's 15-year-old son, Jaden. Will Smith's wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith has now commented on her daughter's photo to paparazzi at Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday. "Here's the deal. There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation" she told US Weekly

Hollywood stars shine at the Met Gala
Some of the brightest stars in Hollywood descended on New York City on Monday for the Charles James Beyond Fashion Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This year's theme was "White Tie" so the celebrities were wearing lots of 40s and 50s style fashion on the red carpet. Some of the celebrities who got nods of approval by Vogue for their red carpet fashion were Hayden Panettiere in a floral Dennis Basso gown, Selena Gomez in a maroon Diane Von Furstenberg number and Blake Lively in a gold Gucci piece. Pink seemed to be a popular colour of choice this year with Reese Witherspoon, Taylor Swift, Rachel McAdams and Emma Stone all opting for dresses in different shades of pink.

Miley Cyrus resumes Bangerz tour
Miley Cyrus was back on stage at London's O2 Arena on Wednesday after weeks of health issues that forced the 21-year-old singer to postpone several U.S. and European tour dates. During the show on Wednesday Cyrus performed many of her hit songs including, We Can't Stop, Party In The USA and Wrecking Ball. Prior to her performance the pop star made it clear that she did not have a drug overdose. "I didn't have a drug overdose. I took some antibiotics that a doctor gave me for a sinus infection and I had a reaction" she said. In addition to getting back to her tour Cyrus was recently announced as a performer at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, which will be held on Sunday, May 18.

Justin Bieber responds to Seth Rogan comments
Justin Bieber has responded to a few comments that Seth Rogan made about him recently, while promoting his latest film, Bad Neighbours. On Monday Rogan appeared on Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show and he recalled a few negative meetings with the pop star. "I've met him a few times. He's a good example of someone who you meet who you think you are going to hate and then you get to hate him as much as you thought" Rogan said. Bieber responded on Twitter "Sorry I didn't bow down when I asked 2 meet you. Was probably a bit shy and didn't want to be over the top but sill love ur movies" the 20-year-old tweeted.

Grinspoon frontman accuses Kylie Minogue of lip syncing
Grinspoon frontman, Phil Jamieson accused Minogue of miming during the coach's opening number on The Voice on Sunday night. "Look the only thing I've got to say about that opening number- I think it was Hall Of Fame they sung- is that Kylie Minogue telling people how to sing live is a little like me coaching the South Sydney Rabbitohs. Like it's a good idea but we've really got no experience in it whatsoever" Jamieson told Triple M's The Grill Team. "I'm pretty sure it was mimed" he continued. As a new coach on The Voice Australia Minogue took to the stage to sing The Script's Hall Of Fame with her fellow coaches Will.I.Am, Ricky Martin and Joel Madden.

Please feel free to discuss and give your opinions on anything that you've read in my blog! Who were your best dressed picks from the Met Gala?, for those of you who are in Australia like me who has been your favourite contestant on The Voice so far this season? and what do you think of Kylie Minogue and Will.I.Am as the new coaches?

My personal favourite dress from the Met Gala was actually Hayden Panettiere's gown. It suited her to a T. I find that a lot of celebrities in her age group tend to rock fashion that makes them look like they are in their 40s instead of their 20s but Hayden's Panettiere's number was age appropriate. The dress looked young and fun but at the same time it was classy and tasteful. What's more important is that the dress looked comfortable to wear! I also loved Blake Lively's and Selena Gomez's dresses. 

Gotta say that I think Kylie Minogue and Will.I.Am are killing it on the new season of The Voice Australia! I can tell that they are really enthusiastic and passionate to impart their knowledge and experience in the entertainment industry onto these up and coming artists. I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed it but I certainly have! This season of The Voice seems to be a lot tougher than the previous two. The standard that the coaches are looking for is a lot higher. I think my favourite contestants so far are Lionel Cole, who is the nephew of musician, Nat King Cole and rap duo, Reece and Tino. Lionel is already a seasoned professional and with his talent I think he could win the whole competition. Reece and Tino have that natural swagger about them and of course they are talented. I'm quite a fan of rap music so I can't wait to hear more of their work.
