Supermodel girlfriends

The modern rock star's number one accessory. We uncover the catwalk chicks that can't resist muso men.
David Bowie and Iman
Bowie reportedly fell head over heels in love with Somali-born model Iman. She admitted in an online chat, "It was nerve wracking at the beginning, the first five minutes, but we got along very famously and we have been together since then."

David Bowie and Iman

(1990 — present)

Their first encounter was a 1990 blind date set up by their hairdresser. Bowie is one of the most influential, and innovative, musicians of our time who had a string of top 10 hits and a serious acting career. Iman is a strikingly attractive supermodel who had transitioned from the magazine to the silver screen — the idea they were finding it difficult to meet people is just plain depressing for the rest of us mere mortals.

Luckily for them their meeting was love at first sight, and Bowie reportedly fell head over heels in love with Somali-born model Iman. She admitted in an online chat, "It was nerve wracking at the beginning, the first five minutes, but we got along very famously and we have been together since then."

What did they see in each other?
The pair seem to share a wacky off-the-wall sense of humour. Iman even said she married Bowie because "he's just plain silly". In a 2003 interview Bowie said about the relationship, "I don't have that sense of loneliness that I had before, which was very, very strong. It became a subtext for a lot of things I wrote."

So if you haven't been too keen on what Bowie's been writing for the last 17 years, then you know who to blame.

Was it true love?
It seems to be the case. Iman's most recent show of love was forcing David onto a strict diet after he suffered a heart attack in 2004. For David marriage the second time around has changed him for the better, as he explained: "I like where I'm at and I'm very comfortable. I like being who I am, who I'm with and what I'm doing. I seem to have found an equilibrium in my life."

WATCH: Latex-clad Ariana Grande gets soaked by JLo's ex in 'Love Me Harder' sneak peek MusicFIX Blog by Carmarlena Murdaca Oct 29 2014 9:05AM

Looks like Ariana Grande doesn't mind getting her hair wet.

Taking a dip in the sexy pool, 21-year-old Ariana rolls around in a black leather bustier for her 'Love Me Harder' teaser… all while JLo's ex Casper Smart splashes water over her taut bod.

It's an instant pulse-racer! Check out the music video sneak peek above…

Despite slamming diva rumours while Down Under last month, the pint-sized pop star isn't doing herself any favours with this behind-the-scenes clip.

Especially since we see her get carried around on set because she "lays down in every music video". No Ariana, it's because you're totally precious.


Yep, we can see why Ariana would need to be carried on set. NOT.

Regardless of her diva training wheels, we're pretty excited to see more writhing and rolling from this sultry songstress as soon as her music video drops… and hopefully a whole lot less Casper.

Best friend ever? Katy Perry flies 70 pals to Paris for 30th birthday celebration MusicFIX Blog by Adam Bub Oct 28 2014 9:35AM

It's been a huge week of celeb birthday parties, with Kim Kardashian's 34th in Vegas and Kelly Osbourne's Rocky Horror-themed 30th in LA… but Katy Perry's 30th really takes the (birthday) cake.

The pop diva flew 70 pals to Paris with hardly any notice, because, well, YOLO.

Katy had been holidaying in Marrakech, Morocco on a break from her Prismatic world tour when she booked a last-minute private plane for her friends and boyfriend Diplo, New York Post reports.

So why the big rush? Katy wanted to keep her b'day details "low key" after her plans for a trip to Egypt were leaked to the public. Sigh, we guess Paris will do…

The 'Birthday' singer and co touched down in the City of Lights on Sunday night, with the star apparently laughing and taking selfies with her 35-year-old DJ beau on the tarmac.

"They piled off the flight, her friends, assistants, her whole camp," an eyewitness told New York Post. "She flew all of her friends out, all on her dime."

Within hours, Katy, Diplo and a party posse of around 20 ate at Michelin-starred restaurant Le Jules Verne on the Eiffel Tower. When in Paris…

By early Monday morning, Katy and Diplo flew out again as he had gigs booked in San Jose and Las Vegas. Talk about a jet-setting lifestyle!

The pair were first rumoured to have hooked up in April, but it's all a bit awkward since he's expecting a bub any day now with ex-girlfriend Kathryn Lockhart. They also have a four-year-old son, Lockett... how awesome would it be to say Katy Perry's your stepmum?

We hope her Paris party antics looked something like this...

Now let's compare Katy's birthday with Kim Kardashian's 34th bash in Vegas...
