Iggy Azalea commands the stage in skin-tight shorts bodysuit as opener to Pitbull tour

Pitbull kicked off his Can’t Stop Us Now summer tour late last month with supporting artist Iggy Azalea as the opener.

And on Friday the rappers rolled into Wantagh, New York, for their show at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater, which is the seventh gig on the trek that goes through the US and Canada until October 19.

Fans can catch the Aussie rapper as the special guest until September 4, and then Jamaican dancehall rapper and singer Sean Paul will take over the opening artist slot the rest of the way.

This double billing is a perfect fit for fans of contemporary hip-hop.

Azalea (born Amethyst Amelia Kelly), 32, hit the stage first decked out in purple shorts bodysuit that resembled something from an animation film or series.

The skimpy ensemble, which included matching sleeves that up just past her elbows, hugged her famous curves.

She also strutted her way around the stage dancing and gyrating around the stage in black boots.

Rounding out her overall look, the Aussie star pulled her dyed blonde tresses back into a tight ponytail and a part in the middle.

Azalea has been performing a set list of 14 songs, including her show opener Work, which was followed by other such recognizable hits as Fancy, Black Widow and Problem.

After Izalea rocked the house, it was time for Pitbull, who brought is infectious smile to the stage, decked out in an all-black ensemble consisting of leather jacket over his shiny button-down shirt and vest.

The Miami-based rapper (born Armando Christian Pérez), 41, pretty much stuck to the hits for his portion of the double-billing.

The result was a dance-heavy romp through nearly two decades of club favorites and Latin hip-hop chart-toppers that included Fireball, Echa Pa’lla (Manos Pa’Arriba), I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho) and Give Me Everything.

Instead of an intermission, Pitbull took two five-minute breaks, during which his tour DJ IAmChino spun while his six backup dancers, decked out in even skimpier ensembles, entertained the crowd with their fresh moves.

Mr. Worldwide will lead the tour to such cities as San Antonio, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Toronto, Nashville, and Orlando, before wrapping on October 19 in Hollywood, Florida.

Pitbull began his career in the early 2000s, recording reggaeton, Latin hip hop, and crunk music under a multitude of labels.

He would eventually rebrand himself more the the vain of a pop artist with his English-language Planet Pit (2011), which featured his first number one single Give Me Everything (feature Ne-Yo,Afrojack and Nayer).

    Shetland’s Tosh star addresses promotion rumours after Douglas exit ‘Really weird’

    Fans of the hit BBC series are eager to find out who will take on the important job as lead detective now that Jimmy (played by Douglas Henshall)’s exit has been confirmed. Series seven of the drama, which started last week, will eventually see Jimmy making his departure from the show, so could his sidekick Tosh get a promotion in his place? Actress Alison revealed her thoughts.

    DI Jimmy Perez actor Douglas recently broke fans’ hearts when it was announced he’d be leaving his iconic role on Shetland.

    Ever since viewers found out, they’ve been putting on their own detective caps trying to work out who might lead the series after the current one ends.

    Shetland has gripped fans since 2013, but the seventh series will be Douglas’ last.

    When asked if her character would be promoted, Alison replied: “No. But thanks for asking!”

    She didn’t rule out saying her own goodbyes to the series, though.

    Talking about whether she’d be making an exit along with Douglas, she admitted: “I don’t know what I’m doing yet. It’s all undecided.”

    Alison had to keep quiet the fact that her co-star was calling it a day on Shetland.

    “It was really weird when the public found out that Dougie was leaving,” she confessed.

    “I’ve had time to get used to it – I think he decided when we were filming season five that he’d commit to two more seasons.”

    If it turns out Tosh is leaving too, fans would be devastated.

    Acting isn’t Alison’s only forte, though, and she has successfully tried her hand at writing a script.

    Speaking to Radio Times, she continued: “With acting, you’re always waiting around for somebody to give you the chance to do it.

    “But with writing, I can get up, open my computer and just do it.”

    When asked if she’d be tempted to give up acting and write full time, her passion for acting was clear.

    “No way!” she replied. “I could never give up acting. I’ve gone beyond the point of no return.”

    Season six came to an explosive end after viewers finally found out who was behind the murder of Alex Galbraith.

    The latest episode had a promising ending for Jimmy, who enjoyed a meal with his love interest.

    However, with no clarification as of yet as to how Jimmy will leave the series, his happiness might not last.

    The detective could decide to move on, but there’s always the possibility he could be killed off.

    Fans would be even more heartbroken if so, but after years of fronting the series, some think it could be a fitting way for the character to make an exit.

    Shetland continues on Wednesday at 9pm on BBC One.

    Where is the original cast of Allo Allo! now?

    Running from 1982 up until 1992, ‘Allo ‘Allo! had viewers in hysterics as they watched René Artois (played by Gorden Kaye) try to run his cafe in France during World War II. Over nine series, viewers got to know and love the characters featured in the BBC sitcom but 30 years later, it’s time to see what have the actors been up to since.

    Originally starring in Coronation Street as Bernard Butler, Gorden shot to fame for his portrayal of the main character in ‘Allo ‘Allo!

    Viewers watched Rene Artois’ daily life in the French town while trying to keep a friendly face for the German soldiers.

    Throughout the show, people also saw him have many affairs with his waiting staff.

    When the show ended, Gordon kept under the radar until 2007 when he returned to his role as Rene in a one-off special of ‘Allo ‘Allo!

    He also took part in an Australian stage shot of the sitcom alongside fellow co-stars Sue Hodge and Guy Siner.

    Sadly, the actor suffered from dementia and spent the last two years of his life in a care home before he died on 23 January 2017

    Carmen played Rene’s unsuspecting wife in ‘Allo ‘Allo! who was also a cabaret performer at the cafe.

    Once the BBC sitcom ended in 1992, the Canadian actress continued working as she starred in Jimmy Perry’s stage musical That’s Showbiz.

    She also featured in many other West End shows including Waters of the Moon, Hobson’s Choice and A Coat of Varnish.

    Going back to camera work, Carmen played the grandmother in the movie La Passione in 1997.

    The actress was diagnosed with lung cancer and sadly died in 2002 at the age of 80.

    During her time on ‘Allo ‘Allo! Vicki Michelle played a cafe waitress and also Rene’s mistress, Yvette.

    Since leaving the show, the actress has kept herself busy and has continued with her acting career.

    Vicki went straight into another main role as she played Noel Edmonds’ man-eating neighbour in Noel’s House party.

    She continued the role until 1997 and starred in many other productions including Dracula, All in the Game and more recently the romantic comedy The Callback Queen.

    Although she’s had a long-lasting acting career, the 71-year-old is best known for her recurring role of Patricia Foster in the ITV soap Emmerdale.

    Due to her contributions to charity, the star was awarded an MBE for her services.

    Alongside playing different characters, Vicki entered the Australian jungle as herself in the ITV reality show, I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here back in 2014.

    Arthur’s character as officer Crabtree didn’t appear in the sitcom until series two of the show.

    His role kept people entertained by his continuous mispronunciation of English words such as getting “Good morning” muddled up with “Good moaning”.

    Once the show ended, Arthur guest starred in the audio drama Dead Man Walking in 2005 and also had a stint at pantomime when he was one of the Ugly Sisters in Cinderella.

    The 67-year-old has appeared in a number of both radio and TV shows such as the BBC dramatisation of The Good Soldier Švejk, Doctors and Father Brown.

    According to film site IMD, he’s currently filming Advent where he will play the town mayor.

    After starring in ‘Allo ‘Allo!, the 70-year-old has featured in a string of TV shows.

    In terms of her roles on-screen, Kim is credited for featuring in Casualty, Grange Hill, The Brittas Empire and Fifteen Storeys.

    The actress has also had many stage appearances such as the West End production of ‘Allo’ Allo!, My Mother Said I Never Should, Stepping Out and Relatively Speaking.

    Kim also had a small role in the 2017 war movie Dunkirk.

    She also presented a travel show called Cruising to the Northern Lights which was shown on the Travel Channel.

    The 74-year-old was best known in ‘Allo ‘Allo! for playing Oberleutnant Hubert Gruber, a german officer who was on leave from the Russian front.

    In the BBC sitcom, it was believed the lieutenant had a crush on René Artois.

    Since the sitcom, Guy has continued acting and has starred in shows such as ChuckleVision, Doctors and Diagnosis Murder.

    He also had a small part in the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie in 2003 as the Harbourmaster.

    Although he’s also done a lot of voice work in his career with roles in the Star Wars video games and children’s show SpongeBob SquarePants.

    His most recent role was when he appeared as Francis Pym in the TV hit The Crown.

    Sue is well-known for playing one of Rene’s waitresses in the BBC sitcom.

    Since the show, she’s appeared as Nurse Mimi in the pantomime production Robin Hood.

    In 2009, Sue went back to TV for a role as Connie in the sitcom The Lads Club.

    Although she’s not as in the limelight as her co-stars, Sue has a one-woman show called Mimi and Me (‘Allo Again) and has also written a book called Mimi’s Memoirs.

    Both the tour and book take you through her years on ‘Allo ‘Allo.

    Heather Rae El Moussa showcases baby bump in sporty workout ensemble after leaving Pilates class

    Heather Rae El Moussa showed off her baby bump after a Pilates class in Newport Beach on Wednesday.

    The reality star, 34, wore a small gray tank top and tight salmon-colored leggings that wrapped tightly around her legs.

    El Moussa’s long blonde locks were tied back in a tight ponytail as she left the workout studio.

    The Anaheim native protected her eyes from the harsh Southern California sun with square-rimmed black shades, and she carried a sweater in her arms.

    El Moussa, former Heather Rae Young, stared down at her phone throughout the walk to her car.

    Heather also posted to Instagram on Thursday about her pregnancy writing, ‘Future mom and dad to another baby El Moussa [blue heart emojis] It’s crazy how it’s already been almost a whole month since we found out we’d be the parents to another baby boy and there’s something extra special about having a baby with a man you already know is an incredible dad [white heart emoji].

    ‘Seeing my husband be such an amazing dad over the years to miss Tay and Bray Bray has melted my heart- I can’t wait to for another little one in the family… I hope he’s just like his daddy [floating hearts emoji, blue heart emoji] but maybe with mommy’s nose and lips.’

    The Selling Sunset star’s workout came just days after her husband Tarek, 40, complimented his better half on how hard she’s been working.

    ‘When everyday is bring your wife to work day>>> [hands up emoji],’ the Flip or Flop star wrote in an Instagram post caption. ‘In awe of how amazing Heather has been doing throughout her pregnancy. Still coming to work, still working out, and still being an incredible step mom to Tay and Bray!’

    He added, ‘I’ve been getting a bunch of questions asking about her pregnancy so if you have any specific questions that I haven’t gotten to in my DMs let me know below and I’ll use this post to answer them.’

    Tarek shared a photo of the pair standing on the porch of a beautiful home with the father of two pretending to bite his wife of almost one year’s ear.

    Tarek and Heather first started dating in 2019, one year after he and his Flip or Flop co-star Christina Hall divorced.

    The couple were married for nine years beginning in 2009 after meeting at a real estate firm where they both worked.

    They share two children: 11-year-old Taylor and six-year-old Brayden.

    Tarek and Heather’s first child together, which they revealed to be a boy earlier this month, is expected early in 2023.

    Hugh Jackman shows off his rippling muscles as he takes his beloved pet pooch Allegra for swim

    He was left bereft after the death of his beloved dog Dali earlier this month.

    And Hugh Jackman found comfort in his other pet pooch Allegra on Friday.

    The Aussie actor, 53, showed off his famous superhero physique as he went for swim with the pup near his home in The Hamptons.

    The Aussie star flaunted his rippling muscles in a pair of boardshorts as he jumped in the water from the sand.

    Hugh looked overjoyed as he cuddled Allegra in the water.

    The Greatest Showman star was later joined by his wife Deborra-Lee Furness, 66, and the loved-up couple went for a stroll along the sand and rocks.

    On August 7, the Hollywood actor announced his dog Dali passed away just one month shy of his 12th birthday.

    ‘It’s a very sad day for our family,’ he wrote in the caption. ‘Dali, our beloved Frenchie, passed away last night. He would’ve been 12 next month … which I’m told is a long life for this breed. I always, always called him the ROCKSTAR.

    ‘Because he was! He marched to the beat of his own drum, was beloved by the whole world, and boy did he have a good life. We will miss him but know he’s howling in heaven, ruling the roost and enjoying the all you can eat buffet. RIP Dali Rockstar Jackman. We love you!’

    Hugh and Deborra-Lee adopted Dali back in 2010, while Allegra was an early Christmas present to the Aussie actor in 2014.

    The Broadway star regularly shares pup updates with his 30 million followers on Instagram and previously joked that his canine companions were ‘way more famous’ than him.

    He previously said: ‘My dogs are way more famous than me! If I post anything about my dogs, it blows up. I just did a play and fans were coming to the theatre – but it wasn’t for me! I was taking the puppy into the theatre and the fans would say ‘When’s the dog coming?’ They came to see the puppy.’

    ‘They didn’t care about me! And I get it, they’re way more interesting than me!’ the star quipped.

    Hugh and Deb have two children together – 22-year-old Oscar and 17-year-old Ava.

    On top of this recent difficulty in his personal life, the X-Men actor has remained quite busy professionally as well.

    Hugh is currently starring as Professor Harold Hill in the Broadway revival of The Music Man. The show was nominated for six Tonys but received none at the June ceremony.

    He has several projects on the way including The Son, a family drama co-starring Anthony Hopkins and Laura Dern.

    The strapping star is currently filming his part in the television show Koala Man which is set for release in 2023.

    His movies The Good Spy and Apostle Paul are both in pre-production with no release dates reportedly set.
