Jaden dresses

up for prom date

 

Jaden Smith wore a dress to take Amandla Stenberg to her prom.

The 16-year-old son of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, who has previously been linked to Kendall Jenner, ditched the traditional tuxedo for a black and white dress with a black suit jacket to attend the 16 year-old actress' party to celebrate graduating from high school.

In a picture that Amandla (who is famous for playing Rue in The Hunger Games) posted on Twitter, she's seen with her hair in long braids wearing a long metallic dress to match Jaden.

This isn't the first time that Jaden has experimented with female clothing. The Karate Kid 2 star was seen wearing a dress in April when he was out in Calabasas, California, and also posted an Instagram picture at the time.

He wrote: "Went To TopShop To Buy Some Girl Clothes, I Mean 'Clothes'."

Jaden has also said in the past that he doesn't care what people think about the way he dresses, as long as he's "having fun". He previously said: "All black is pretty much my go-to look. If somebody is just wearing something for the blogs, that's really sad because they're not living for themselves, versus someone wearing a kimono who's having an awesome time."

"I really look to see, do you care more about what other people think, or are you having fun?"

 

Kanye claims achievement

causes hate

 

Kanye West has claimed that "when you're the absolute best, you get hated on the most".

The 37 year-old rapper recently spoke to students at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College and told them how he had to "fight to be accepted" into the fashion world, after starting out as a musician.

"It's a tough world out there," he said. "You're going to prepare yourself for politics, bad bosses, hating employees - and usually when you're the absolute best, you get hated on the most."

The All Day hitmaker, who is married to Kim Kardashian West, was forced to complete 250 hours of community service by teaching at the college after a brawl with paparazzi in 2013, but has stayed on as a volunteer mentor ever since. In his speech, West said how "honoured" he was to be at the school and able to inspire students.

According to ETOnline, Kanye added "I'm really honoured to be here tonight around so many creative people, so many dreamers. As a lot of you know, I really love fashion, and it's been a love of mine as far back as I can remember."

"It's something that I've always had to fight to be accepted to love and I empathise with anyone who has ever loved fashion because it's not like loving the idea of being a lawyer or becoming a doctor."

 

No nudies for The Rock

 

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson doesn't take naked photos.

The 43-year-old bachelor has insisted he would have nothing to hide if his mobile phone got hacked, because he refuses to take revealing snaps of himself. He said: "I don't have anything that needs to be hacked on this phone."

The Fast & Furious star - who in 2008 divorced his wife of 11 years, Dany Garcia, with whom he has a 13-year-old daughter, Simone, instead claimed he's too "smart" to take such photos. He is also careful about what he keeps on his device following the celebrity hacking scandal in which numerous famous faces had intimate images leaked.

He continued: "I'm safe! I'm smart! I don't take pictures of myself naked or anything like that."

But while hacking is the least of his worries, the former wrestler admitted he is always anxious about earthquakes, having recently shot a disaster movie, San Andreas, in which California is struck by a deadly quake.

He told The Independent on Sunday newspaper: "The scientists we worked with said everything in the script could really happen. This sounds like a movie line, but it's not a matter of if but a matter of when. We're 100 years overdue."

 

Gwen Stefani loves sleeping

 

No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani - who has three sons, Kingston, eight; Zuma, six; and 15-month-old Apollo, with husband Gavin Rossdale - has admitted she would spend all day in bed if she could.

Asked how she would spend her perfect day, the 45-year-old star said: "I've always loved sleeping. Even in my 20s, I would be like, 'Oh my God! We are playing at midnight?' So my perfect day would be sleeping in and falling back asleep as many times as possible without an alarm."

The blonde claims her life is much more chaotic these days as she is juggling her music career and fashion line with being a judge on 'The Voice USA', and she dreams of fleeing to Morocco.

Discussing her diet, she told the June issue of Elle magazine: "I'm definitely a tea girl - PG Tips. I could drink tea all day long. As for breakfast, Gavin and I once travelled to Morocco and stayed in this little riad. They would make these pancakes that were almost like crepes, but drizzled in honey. I fantasise about them, about having the children there, eating those pancakes surrounded by the trees and chameleons and other crazy cool animals."
