Ciara Predicts She Will Be A Bridezilla

ciara-324-2

Ciara is in full wedding planning mode.

The singer chatted with PEOPLE about her upcoming wedding to fiance Future.

“It’s going to be two parts,” Ciara told PEOPLE at the People’s Choice Awards nominations announcement last week. “We’re both from Atlanta and we have so many family and friends … it’s going to be hard to get everybody in one place, so we’re going to do a celebration part and a wedding.”

Ciara, 28, is making sure every little wedding detail is perfect. And though she doesn’t seem like the type, the singer believes she will be a Bridezilla.

“I think I’ll be part bridezilla, I’m not going to lie,” she said. “But I want to be a happy one! I still want it to be a fun process, but I want the dress to be perfect, I want the cake to be perfect, I want the food to be perfect.”

Ciara also plans to show off her curves, but still keep it classy. “I want to go a little vintage, a little throwback classic almost like my mom was walking down the aisle,” she said.

Future, 29, is just as meticulous when it comes to details, but he’s decided to take a back seat and let his future wife spearhead the planning.

“He gets to have his say and then he lets me go off and do my thing,” she said. “I know he’s going to want the fun part to be right. We’re both looking forward to it.”

Carly Rose Sonenclar is powerhouse vocalist.

The X-Factor runner-up recently did her very own interpretation of One Direction’s “Stole My Heart,” which sounds extremely different from the original version.

During her stint on the FOX reality competition, Sonenclar was known for putting her own twist on songs and this 1D track is no different.

The pint-sized singer turned an upbeat song., into a heartfelt ballad. Some One Direction fans might not be pleased with this rendition, but this particular interpretation really shows just how versatile Sonenclar is.  Additionally, Sonenclar dedicated the song to her cousins, who recently lost their father.

Bruno Mars Gets Dapper for GQ Magazine

 

“Grenade” singer Bruno Mars is making moves in a big way. mars recently took part in a photo shoot for a feature for GQ magazine.  The singer looked fashionable, handsome and at ease in all of his pictures. In his interview with GQ Mars opens up about his arrest for possession,  all the while giving fedora fashion tips.

Bruno Mars on his bust for cocaine possession in Vegas in 2010:

“I’m not gonna preach that I’m a role model. I’m a f**king musician! But I’ve learned people are watching, so don’t do nothing stupid.”

Bruno’s recommendations for wearing and werking your fedora:

Top Off Your Tee
That same gray hat works when you’re going casual, too. It’ll make a V-neck tee look like a style statement.

Draw a Straw
Felt fedoras are for fall and winter. When it’s hotter than hell, go lightweight in straw.

Find Your Rhythm
Think of the ribbon on your hat as a shot of color. Your clothes should play off it, not match perfectly.
