It is pretty common knowledge that many actors, singers, models, reality TV stars, and other celebrities have undergone plastic surgery to make themselves look younger, give themselves the bodies they have always wanted, or improve the appearance of the face. However, even though it is totally obvious that some celebrities have undergone cosmetic surgery, they just won’t come out and admit that they have undergone treatment.
Nicole Kidman finally admitted in a recent magazine interview that she has had Botox injections, but says that was in the past and she did not like the effects of the product. Kidman remained mum on the subject of plastic surgery, despite persistent rumors that the Academy Award winning actress has undergone breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, and liposuction. A simple Internet search of the actress reveals photos that were taken in the 80s; back then Kidman’s nose looks as though it has a different shapes and her lips were much thinner.
A telltale sign of use of plastic surgery and non-invasive aesthetic treatments: women in their 40s, 50s, and up that do not have a single wrinkle on their face. Madonna is in her 50s and does not exhibit the normal signs of aging such as wrinkling of the skin or skin laxity. She credits a macrobiotic diet and stringent fitness routine, which includes yoga, for maintaining such a youthful appearance for her age. Plastic surgeons and gossipers agree that the Queen of Pop has likely undergone some type of facial plastic surgery procedure, or at the very least, non-invasive treatments such as chemical peels or laser skin resurfacing.
The reality TV star has undergone non-invasive cosmetic treatments, including VelaShape and Botox injections, on her reality show. However, the buxom beauty denies having the plastic surgery procedures she is rumored to have undergone, such as butt augmentation, placement of breast implants, rhinoplasty, and lip enhancement. While it is hard to tell if her butt or breasts have been augmented, her nose does appear to have been reshaped sometime between the first and second seasons of her reality show.

The latest in a long string of celebrities to write children’s books when the going gets tough, Barack Obama has joined the ranks of children’s authors with his book, Of thee I sing.
Bookstores across the world are filled with celebrity offerings and Obama is not the first celebrity to turn to writing children’s books when they have been perceived less than favourably in the press. Though admittedly, he is the first president to aim his work at children. n.
Well-known names such as Madonna (who released her first of six children’s books, The English Roses, back in 2003) and Sarah Ferguson (who has released a string of books throughout her many periods of disgrace) have jumped on the bandwagon.
It is thought that these celebrities (including former First-Lady, Hilary Clinton) believe that by showing their softer, compassionate side, will regain the public’s trust and respect after falling from grace. Take Jordan, a.k.a Katie Price, for example – after a string of allegations and accusations in the press, Jordan released her sparkly pink offering, My Pony Care book.
Obama has provided himself some saving grace, in the form of all his proceeds going to charity. All money gained from sales of the publication will benefit the Fisher House Foundation, a charity dedicated to the children of soldiers wounded or killed in battle, and Obama is not giving any interviews in relation to the release.
Other cynics have also attributed the celebrities’ enthusiasm to the success achieved by the phenomenally popular Harry Potter books, which made JK Rowling both a celebrity and a millionaire.
Despite the fact that many cynics see celebrities’ writing ambitions as a money-making enterprise, it can be argued that it doesn’t matter who’s written the books; if children are more inclined to sit down and read just because their favourite celebrity is attached to the novel, where is the harm?
By reading more, children widen their vocabulary and advance their development. This outcome is positive even if the books themselves may ultimately be a cynical attempt at making cash and creating publicity.

Securing the safety and security of top leaders of countries, celebrities and the rich and famous has never been easy as they are commonly the victims of terror threat, kidnapping and stalking. The nature of their jobs, the position they are into and the money attached to their names and positions pose as temptations to the public. Despite security measures, some well-planned schemes were almost successful, some others were not but a few crimes were really committed into action and proved to be successful for the perpetrators.
Managing celebrity security is the most difficult because of the nature of their profession as it require them to be always on the spotlight and be with a large crowd. They become more vulnerable to threats because of their lifestyles. Despite their status, many try to live as normal as possible like going shopping unaccompanied to the point of risking their lives. We hear over the radio, read on the papers and see on the television and the internet so much about paparazzis sticking their cameras in front of celebrities’ faces and stalking them for days just so to take a photo or two and how celebrities abhor being hounded in this obnoxious fashion. Paparazzi harassment, however, dims in comparison to kidnapping and death threats. Celebrities are always on guard to maintain their safety and of their families taking extraordinary security measures in place at all times to protect themselves and their loved ones.
Taking a kidnap threat seriously against Australian actor Russell Crowe in 2001, the FBI insisted on accompanying him to the Academy Awards just to protect him. The FBI later informed him that the threat came from the Al-Qaeda. It was so fortunate that the plot was discovered before it was really committed. What about those that were literally materialized into action?
In 1985, Julio Iglesias’ father, Julio Iglesias, Sr., was kidnapped by Basque terrorists and held captive for 2 weeks, repeatedly threatened with death but was later rescued by Spanish police unharmed on the day the ransom money was supposed to be release to the kidnappers. Although he was never harmed physically, he was badly traumatized by the incident.
Because of this, the need for security globally has increased. The forecasted expenditure allotted on security services alone, by 2012 is expected at $200 billion.

Make up is not only the art of making up, but a process of sustaining good looks.- This quote provides an insight on what the world of a make-up artist is all about. A person who helps in keeping pace with aspects affecting a person’s looks is known as a makeup artist.
Roles of a make-up artist include application of makeup & prosthetics related to all the fields of glamour viz events, movies, theatre, television, fashion, magazines, photography and other related occasions.
The range of education related aspects required for being a make-up artist is quite huge. There are many colleges and universities which offer attractive courses and certification programs with specialization in this field. These courses involve a combination of manuals based learning added to practical training experiences. These courses range from 1 month tenure (which mostly involves direct training) to 1 year courses with the backdrop as theory based learning.
How to Go about These Courses?
After the 90s, various campuses started accommodating many advance training courses which could not be accommodated in degrees programs. Some of these courses were off-beat fields of learning, while most were advanced educational opportunities of upcoming fields of learning. One such off-beat course is the certification program in make-up artistry.
Countries where the film industry is flourishing like India and United States have associations for make-up and other related fields.
The fields of films, television, modeling etc. offer lucrative pay packages. Make-up artists can become personal make-up artists for celebrities as well. In addition, they can open a studio of their own. The set-up is considered a major investment, hence it is seen that multiple makeup artists form a combined company or a label.
The field of makeup artistry is one field where practical hands-on experience matters more than anything else.
Depending upon their clientele, some makeup artists earn more than performing celebrities, but the average income is decent for a makeup artist. Also, a makeup artist needs to be updated about the latest advancements in their field.
Lastly, prospective clients view the concerned makeup artist as a display of what is being offered, so those folks who stay in shape and work on their looks, hairstyle, attire etc. earn well.
A detailed knowledge of all the aspects related to careers, advice and scope of being a makeup artist will come via experience. But, any glamour based career blog or a university college directory will give you better insights.
Work by graffiti artist Banksy has become so popular that celebrities regularly buy originals and prints.
In 2006 American pop singer and songwriter Christina Aguilera paid 25,000 for an original of Queen Victoria as a lesbian and two Banksy prints after arranging a private viewing at a Soho gallery where the Bristol-born urban artist was exhibiting.
Gallery owner Steve Lazarides told the Independent that the pop star already had an in-depth knowledge of Banksy prints and originals and knew exactly what sort of artwork she wanted to buy.
A friend of Aguilera said the musician would prize the Queen Victoria picture featuring the monarch in a lesbian pose with a prostitute and hang it in her living room.
“She’s been a huge fan of Banksy for months and was desperate to get her hands on some of his artwork,” they told the paper.
Banksy reportedly created the controversial piece in response to the fact that Queen Victoria famously refused to pass a law outlawing lesbianism as she refused to believe such things existed.
Hollywood mega-couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are amassing a growing collection of Banksy work having spent in excess of 1 million at a contemporary art auction in London in 2007.
Brangelina also controversially bought a Banksy painting of Michael Jackson which showed the King of Pop standing in the doorway of a cottage attempting to coax a young boy and girl into his house with sweets.
Brad Pitt told the Times at an exhibition in America that he becoming a fan of Banksy after discovering examples of his work through the media.
He said: “I think that this guy is really on to something. I first heard about him a year or so ago I saw something about him in a magazine.”
Keanu Reeves, Meg White and Jude Law are just some of the famous faces who have also been spotted viewing Banksy prints and originals at exhibitions in Hollywood, Los Angeles.
Mr Lazarides said that Banksy prints and originals are popular with celebrities because they prefer contemporary art to classical masterpieces.
He told the Times: “They’ve got money and they don’t particularly want to spend it on a Picasso – they want to buy something that relates to their lives, their time and their culture.”
Banksy has famously painted subversive graffiti in places such as London Zoo, the British Museum and the wall dividing the West Bank in Israel.
