12-Year-Old SYTYCD Contestant Puked on Paula
Honestly, we’re surprised that this hasn’t happened before. These auditions are incredibly high stress situations! and this time they’re just kids! So when Tahani Anderson nailed the audition and scored a ticket to the academy, she was understandably over excited. She ran to the judges and started giving out hugs, starting with Nigel Lythgoe, then she moved on to Paula Abdul, where something was clearly wrong. Paula asks Tahani if she’s ok, she wasn’t, she puked right then and there. She immediately apologized, and Paula told her not to worry, that it’s OK. Despite not having children, Paula behaved very much like a mother who’s been puked on more than a time or two. Get more here.
Prince Harry Wants a Piece of Ellie Goulding
The world doesn’t seem capable of fully relaxing until Prince Harry settles down. Well, he may have found someone, at least for the time being. Harry and Ellie Goulding were reportedly all over each other at a recent polo match. Technically, it was at a party after the match, where cell phones were banned so we unfortunately have no evidence. A source says, quote, “They spent a lot of time sitting together under blankets. They were [kissing] before Harry had to go because he was playing polo the next day. Ellie left about five minutes later. He has told friends how much he likes Ellie and she is clearly taken by him.” Harry is 31 and Ellie is 29. Get more here.

Beyoncé’s Inspirational Fashion Icon Award Acceptance Speech
Beyoncé was honored with something called the CFDA Fashion Icon Award earlier this week, instead of talking about being a fashion icon, she gave an inspirational speech, while wearing $9 million in diamonds and an awesome hat. She said, quote, “When we were starting out in Destiny’s Child, high-end labels didn’t really want to dress four black, country, curvy girls, so my mother and my Uncle Johnny designed all of our first costumes and made each piece by hand. “When I wore these clothes on stage I felt like Khaleesi. I had an extra suit of armor. It was so much deeper than any brand name.” She also said, quote, “Thank you for showing me that having a presence is far more than the clothes you wear and your physical beauty.” Get more here.
