Popping out for her daily errands, the always-sexy Kim Kardashian was spotted picking up a prescription at her local Rite Aid earlier today (September 17).
The afternoon outing comes amidst an intense training routine as the socialite turned reality star prepares for the September 22nd premiere of “Dancing with the Stars”.
Of her experience with the show and dance partner Mark Ballas, Kim recently blogged: “We had to pick two songs that were the right tempo and cadence for the specific dances we’re doing — it has to match and has to work — but we also wanted things that worked for our personalities — plus we wanted things that we thought the crowd would like.”
As for hitting the dance floor, the 27-year-old brunette beauty explains: “At first, I just try to imitate what Mark (Ballas) does, but after a while and with his guidance, I know the dance steps myself and not that is gets easy, but it gets less confusing and we can actually dance together and that is really, really exciting. Of course I have my moments where I lose my balance or I lose my place, and some days are better than others.”
Sounding as if she’s ready to hit the stage, Miss Kardashian adds: “Mark and I continue to rehearse every single day, still make each other laugh, and are getting more and more excited to show everyone what we’ve been working so hard for!! Just a few more days!!!”
Taking a break from the set of their new TV show, the Jonas Brothers headed out to the Big 5 Sporting Goods store in Beverly Hills on Wednesday afternoon (September 17).
Flanked by security personnel, Nick, Joe and Kevin were all seen as they exited the shop - carrying a handful of bags with brand new shoes.
Meanwhile, Nick was spotted out solo earlier in the day - as he had to make an emergency vet run with his birthday puppy.
The youngest Jonas brother was given the dog on Tuesday (September 16) by his famous family as a 16th birthday gift. He named his new pooch Elvis - after the rockers Elvis Presley and Elvis Costello - and has been taking his new best friend on walks around his Hollywood home since.
But Nick had to cut short their fun this morning - dashing off to a Los Angeles vet surgery clinic after discovering the cute puppy had a bit of a bug problem!!
In an attempt to maintain her signature glow, Paris Hilton stopped in at the Portofino Sun Center in Beverly Hills on Wednesday (September 17).
Sporting quite the interesting ensemble, Paris sported a combination that included sweatpants and a motorcycle cap topped off with a Paris Hilton t-shirt and handbag.
Meanwhile, it appears as if Miss Hilton has found the perfect candidate to become her new BFF as part of her upcoming reality show “Paris Hilton’s My New BFF,” which begins airing on September 30 on MTV.
“The person who won is now my best friend. We hang out. Yeah, we’re really friends,” Hilton told Reuters. “We’ve been having barbecues and hanging out at the house. The winner and I have been pretty low-key so far, because it is top secret right now.”
Talking about how the show prepared the contestants for the go, go, go Hollywood lifestyle, along with the constant presence of photographers, Hilton added, “In my life you can get photographed at any time. You never know when paparazzi are going to be hiding around the corner. So my friend needs to be paparazzi-ready.”
Riding the wave of success, Katy Perry was on the red carpet for her golden record (150,000 singles sold) of “I Kissed a Girl” in Berlin, Germany on Wednesday (September 17).
Smilingly posing with her plaque, Katy hammed it up for photographers in a cleavage-baring red striped blouse paired with a ruffled polka dot skirt, sheer polka-dot nylons and cherry red patent Mary Jane heels.
Along with receiving her certified gold record, Miss Perry also took the stage for a promo-gig - putting on a brief show for her German fans.
Surprisingly enough, the successful moment in Berlin may never have been - as Katy’s boyfriend revealed that she almost didn’t release the hit track.
Because its homosexual content went against her parents religious beliefs, Katy was about to pull the plug - until Travis McCoy stepped in and changed her mind.
McCoy told press, “As soon as Katy played I Kissed A Girl I said, ‘Baby, this is a smash’. I totally knew from the word go, but she wasn’t sure. She was like, ‘Do you really think so?’ I proved it to her.”
Outkast's Andre 3000 has officially revealed plans to release his upcoming solo debut by as early as December.
The ATLien will be returning without group member Big Boi on his currently untitled project.
"It should be dropping by the end of this year or early next year," he told Rolling Stone. "I've pretty much been working with myself."
Andre 3000, real name Andre Benjamin, has decided not to have a lot of guest appearances on the album.
"I've never really been that big on collaboration," he said. "I have a concept, and all the soundscapes are already in my head, so I just have to figure out how to get there. I've learned that I'm most powerful when I'm doing my art."
The rapper-turned-actor also makes his return to the big screen in "Battle In Seattle," co-starring Woody Harrelson, which debuts tomorrow. Benjamin plays an activist during the 1999 World Trade Organization Summit.
In other news, the Atlanta rapper has ventured into fashion as the creator of a luxury clothing line, called Benjamin Bixby.
The luxury apparel is currently available on the shelves of Barneys and Neiman Marcus retailers.
