Deadpool videos have fans floored!

Celine Dion released a brand new track for the Marvel film, Deadpool 2 which featured Deadpool himself – and he can be seen dancing gracefully in heels! The song, titled Ashes, features Dion singing on the stage as she is later joined by the antihero in his red costume. The star of the movie, Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter to promote the sing. Towards the end of the video, he asks Dion to tone her voice down to a “five instead of an 11,” saying she’s singing for Deadpool and not Titanic. When she refused, he snapped back, saying that he should have asked NSYNC to sing instead. Another video of the comedic superhero is doing the rounds on the internet which shows Reynolds apologising to former footballer David Beckham for mocking his voice and saying that he sounds like he messed with “a can of helium.” Deadpool texts the sports superstar but the latter doesn’t respond. The antihero then shows up at his door a few times apologising in different ways and gets the door slammed in his face every time. Both the videos are hilarious and have done a good job of promoting Reynolds film! 


Aishwarya's Cannes butterfly dress took 3,000 hours to make

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan returned to slay on the Cannes red carpet by teaming up two years in a row with Micheal Cinco, proving to be a designer-and-muse power duo. After transforming into a real-life Cinderella at last year's festival, the Bollywood superstar stunned everyone yet again with another couture gown by him. "The gown was created to reflect the impalpable dream of a butterfly metamorphosis," Cinco has said of the exquisite creation.

The Dubai-based designer did not skimp on the details for this dress: it's completely covered in Swarovski crystals and French palettes; it consists of ultra-violet, midnight blue, and red thread works; and it boasts a 20-foot train that mimics "a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis". Plus, its body-hugging silhouette and sweetheart neckline compliment the actress' figure perfectly. The elaborate number, that was initially created for a Swarovski exhibition, took 3,000 hours to make, Cinco revealed (that converts to 125 non-stop working days).


Blake & Selena cryptic dresses at Met Gala

Blake Lively gave husband Ryan Reynolds and her kids a special shoutout. Her beautiful Versace dress was gorgeous enough to make an impression on its own, but the actress snuck a message into her look, as well. Blake missed Ryan, who didn't attend the gala with her, and their two daughters James and Ines. Her Judith Leiber clutch was decorated with gems creating a family cross. "Reynolds" was written on the bottom, and the family's initials B, J, I, and R were the cross's four points. Selena, meanwhile, went straight-up biblical with her dress and bag. The singer handwrote a Bible verse which Coach embossed on the custom Kiss lock frame bag she carried. It was also sewn in ribbon to the train of the dress. The verse reads, "A woman who fears the Lord is a woman who shall be praised."


Imran & Saba land their first Hollywood projects!

Rumour mills are busy claiming that after her successful Bollywood debut opposite Irrfan Khan last year, Saba Qamar has signed her first Hollywood project, that too with none other than actor Ben Affleck! A source revealed, “Saba knows of the rumours that are circling and will be addressing them soon.” While this leaves one neither here nor there until Saba gives out a statement herself, there is another rumour that has been confirmed to be true, and that is Imran Abbas signing his first British feature film. The actor has revealed that he will be playing a spy in the film who is from a Syrian-Morrocan descent. “I will be seen in about six to seven disguises,” he shared, saying that the shooting for the film titled The Trojan Horse is supposed to commence in July this year. He also added that he will be taking a break from local productions for his international projects.


Araya & Deepika’s twinning moment on the Cannes red carpet

Actresses Deepika Padukone and Araya Hargate, both attended the Sorry Angel premiere at the famed film festival in extremely similar sheer, embellished cape dresses. Deepika, 32, opted for a frosty Zuhair Murad Bridal number from the designer's fall

2018 collection. The luxe gown featured a plunging neckline and rows of white floral embroidery over nearly translucent fabric, which matched nicely with her Lorraine Schwartz and Ofira jewels. The result was pure magic. Araya, 36, went for a dazzling couture gown by Ralph & Russo. The decadent look featured rows of embroidery and beading, which caught the light as she made her way down the carpet. The biggest difference was in the capes: her's was actually split in half while Deepika's was one piece. Our pick? Deepika, for sure!
