Ariana Grande used her time during self-isolation to reveal her natural curly locks on social media.

The No Tears to Cry hitmaker is famous for her trademark high ponytail, and if it isn’t slicked back on the top of her head, her waist-length brunette hair is usually styled poker straight.

However, as the Grammy winner stays at home amid the coronavirus lockdown, she took to Twitter and Instagram to wow fans with her real dark curls, which can be seen tumbling around her face and shoulders in the smouldering picture.

“Get a load a dis (sic),” Ariana captioned the snap.

Her curly locks are reminiscent of old childhood photos Ariana has previously shared with her fans, and her mother Joan chimed in with a sweet note of support for her daughter.

“Beyond stunning. Your natural hair/curls is a world of its own… a magnificent beauty you are inside and out/made up or natural … I love you…” she commented.

More than five million followers liked Ariana’s post on Instagram, and the Thank U, Next hitmaker’s famous friends showed their adoration for the singer’s natural hair.

“Here for this covid curl,” Katy Perry wrote, while Lil Nas X commented: “Beautiful.”

Jessie J and Zoey Deutch were also among the celebrities sharing the love on Ariana’s post, as well as designer Zac Posen and Moschino creative director Jeremy Scott, who wrote: “BEEEEEAAUUTY.”

Ariana previously removed her signature ponytail and showed off her long straight locks for the covers of U.S. Elle and British Vogue magazines back in 2018.

Gwen Stefani has shaved stripes into the side of boyfriend Blake Shelton’s head to help style his new mullet.

The country superstar, who sported the dated cut during his youth, recently decided to let his typically-short hair grow out during his forced downtime, after the coronavirus pandemic led to the postponement of his Friends and Heroes Tour.

“I am growing my mullet back as a symbol of hope or some s**t like that…,” he declared on Twitter earlier this month. “Anyway it’s coming back! For real. Stay tuned…”

On Thursday, Shelton showed off his work-in-progress in a video clip on Twitter, revealing his 50-year-old girlfriend had stepped in to try and improve his changing image.

“Quarantine mullet update 3/26/2020,” Shelton captioned the post. “@gwenstefani has decided to take it to the next level.. Stripes.”

The couple is also keeping busy in self-isolation by dressing up in matching camouflage outfits, with the No Doubt rocker even donning a pair of comfy Crocs bearing the same design.

“Our first quarantine photo shoot…,” the country singer quipped as he shared a picture of the pair posing for the camera.

The Voice U.S. judge isn’t the only celebrity making a hairstyle change during self-isolation – Pink recently took to Instagram to show off her new uneven buzz cut after deciding to give her hair a trim during a drunken night at home.

“Stay safe. Stay home. Cut your own hair! Screw it!” she joked.

Billy Porter has challenged his fans to recreate his Egyptian-themed 2019 Met Gala outfit while they’re in self-isolation.

The Pose star launched the #billyporterfashionchallenge to give his followers on social media the opportunity to get creative as they self-isolate, and the first task was to emulate his theatrical ensemble from the prestigious fashion event last year.

Porter donned a bejewelled golden Sun God catsuit created by The Blonds, which featured 10-foot gold wings, a 24-carat gold headpiece, and custom gold-leaf Giuseppe Zanotti heeled boots.

The 50-year-old actor set out the rules on Instagram, telling his followers that he was making the challenge difficult to test their DIY skills.

“Using items found ONLY in your house, give me your best recreation of my 2019 @themetgalaofficial lewk (sic) and post a photo or video on your Instagram (grid or story),” he wrote alongside photos of himself on the red carpet at last year’s bash.

“Be CREATIVE and have FUN! Get the whole family involved… I’ll share my favorites! Can’t wait to see what y’all come up with, hennies!”

The Like a Boss star later shared a link to a Vogue.com story about the challenge, which featured some of the entries to Porter’s unique creative task.

“I’m GAGGED over all the incredibly creative and chic responses to the Fashion Challenge! Now you’re all featured in @voguemagazine, divas!” he shared on Twitter. “More challenges to come, hennies!”

The 2020 Met Gala was recently postponed as a result of the growing coronavirus pandemic, which has so far infected around 488,000 people, with more than 22,000 deaths.

The annual Costume Institute Gala was due to be held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on 4 May, with the bash to celebrate the opening of the spring exhibition About Time: Fashion and Duration.

Marlee Matlin kept herself entertained during self-isolation by trying on her 1987 Oscars dress.

The 54-year-old actress joked with her Instagram followers that she was losing her mind while being housebound during the coronavirus outbreak so decided to spend some time trying on the lavender Theoni V. Aldredge gown she wore more than 33 years ago, when she won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role as Sarah in the romantic drama Children of a Lesser God.

“I’m losing my mind. What else is it there to do? #oscardress#1987 #34yearsago #bestactress #childrenofalessergod #dressstillfitsthough #gottalaughatyourself #f***coronavirus #besafe #washyourhandsplease #academyawards,” she captioned a Boomerang video of herself in the dress and holding her Oscars statuette, leaving fans impressed that she could still fit into the gown.

In the comments, she explained to a fan that the horn-rimmed glasses she wore to the Oscars were also still in storage.

Matlin also made a collage comparing the 1987 and present day looks alongside the words, “What happens when you’re over the whole quarantine thing and dig through the closet.”

In the caption of the Twitter post, she added, “At least the dress still fits.”

Back in 2012, Matlin revealed in an op-ed for Entertainment Tonight that she wished she had taken off her glasses and ditched the baby’s breath flowers in her hair for the Oscars ceremony.

“Unfortunately, at the last moment, a combination of events left me walking out on the red carpet with baby’s breath in my hair (my hairdresser’s idea) and oversized black horned-rimmed glasses (my boyfriend’s idea who said sarcastically when I wanted to take them off, ‘You’re not a model’). If I had it all to take back, I would’ve ditched the baby’s breath and glasses. What can I say; it was my youth and it was the ’80s,” she joked.

Tyra Banks has postponed the launch of ModelLand amid the global coronavirus outbreak.

The 46-year-old took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce that the opening of her interactive modelling experience would be delayed until later this year.

“As advised from federal, state & local gov, & of experts from the World Health Organization, we will postpone the opening of @ModelLand until deemed safe (sic),” Tyra wrote alongside a screenshot of an official statement. “Please take care of yourselves. Find ways to connect with your loved ones digitally & utilize this time to organize & prepare for the unexpected.”

The 21,000-square-foot multi-level theme park was due to open in Santa Monica, California in May. Advance ticket packages, priced from $59 to $1,495 (£51 – £1,295), had already gone on sale.

“In light of the recommendations of the CDC, WHO, and California Governor Gavin Newsom, we have decided to postpone the opening of ModelLand,” a statement released by ModelLand representatives added. “Will continue to monitor the situation and determine a new date to open that is appropriate and safe.

“We remain excited to bring the wonderous world of ModelLand to you and will wait to welcome you to our attraction when the time is right.”

The coronavirus pandemic has infected more than 9,400 people in the U.S., with 155 dead.

Since the outbreak began in Wuhan, China back in December, more than 220,000 have caught the virus, and almost 9,000 have died.

Jameela Jamil felt “extremely free” posing in menswear-inspired suits for an unretouched photoshoot for Playboy magazine.

The Good Place star also served as guest editor of the spring issue of the men’s magazine, in conjunction with her inclusivity movement I Weigh, and took to Twitter to share images from the spread.

In one shot, she’s wearing a black suit with a crisp white button-down shirt and studded black boots, while in another, the 34-year-old dons a white suit with a black turtleneck, with her dark brunette hair tumbling down around her shoulders.

The actress and activist shared the brooding images from the shoot on Twitter on Thursday, and told her followers that she wanted to create a “completely unsexualized” series of photos for the magazine, founded by the late Hugh Hefner, that traditionally features half-naked women.

“I wanted to be shot like a man,” she wrote alongside the snaps. “No retouching, hi res, loose, comfortable clothes and completely unsexualized. I felt extremely free.”

In the accompanying interview, Jameela candidly opened up about her struggle with depression and anxiety, revealing she didn’t even realise she was having a nervous breakdown because she “wasn’t crying all the time”.

“I wasn’t lying down eating ice cream under a blanket. It was a complete lack of emotion. It was a complete lack of care about myself, about other people, about anything,” she shared. “That’s what my breakdown felt like, that I wasn’t attached to anything or anyone.”

She went on to discuss her two suicide attempts, saying she’s now learned to live life to the fullest to show her appreciation for surviving.

“This is the deal I made with myself to put up with this s**t, to stay on this earth. I’m going to do it, and I’m going to make it an adventure and figure out who the f**k I actually am,” she added.

My Chemical Romance has postponed upcoming tour dates in Japan due to the global coronavirus pandemic.

The band, fronted by vocalist Gerard Way, had been due to take to the stage for a headline show, as well as perform at the Download and Dirty Honey festivals on 28, 29, and 31 March, respectively.

However, in a statement posted to their Twitter page on Thursday, the rock group announced plans to delay the dates.

“The promoter of our Japan shows suggested that we postpone the shows in Japan for the safety of the public, and we are heeding that advice,” they wrote. “Please know we are working on rescheduling shows and will try to announce those soon. We are terribly sad to postpone, and even more distressed about what is happening the world over.”

The group is the latest in a string of big names to postpone or cancel tour dates because of the coronavirus.

The Pixies had been due to conclude a tour of Australia in the coming weeks, but said in a statement that they are postponing the dates.

“Out of caution for current public health concerns, Pixies are postponing the remaining Australian shows in Brisbane, Sydney, and Perth,” they wrote. “This was an extremely difficult decision, but the well-being of our fans is always our top priority. Rescheduled dates for all of these shows will be announced soon.”

Meanwhile, Bikini Kill also announced plans to reschedule forthcoming concerts, tweeting: “We take the health and safety of our supporters, crew and opening bands very seriously, and given the situation in Seattle as well as the lack of information about the actual infection rate of the surrounding areas, it doesn’t make sense for us to go forward with any of the shows in the region.”

All three postponements came just hours after officials at the World Health Organization (WHO) declared that the spread of coronavirus globally can now be considered a pandemic.

Kim Kardashian has thanked Olivier Rousteing for sending her some of the latest looks from Balmain’s fall/winter 2020 collection.

The reality TV star and beauty mogul arrived in Paris, France on Sunday, and a short time later, revealed to her 161 million followers on Instagram what was waiting for her when she checked into her hotel.

“I just got to Paris and look who is in my room,” Kim told the camera, as she showcased the vast array of different Balmain outfits on mannequins waiting for her in each of the suite’s rooms.

The French designer had also gifted his friend and muse a pair of long gloves, and a rail of outfits, including two Latex suits in orange and chocolate brown.

“She is cute, fresh off the Balmain runway, wow,” the 39-year-old said as she examined the high-fashion pieces. “You guys. Oh my God, this is insane. Olivier, you are too good to me.”

Kim debuted the Latex suits as she stepped out in the city, and shared snaps of the ensembles on her Twitter and Instagram pages.

The mother-of-four had styled her hair into a sleek ponytail with a matching Latex hair tie from Balmain, and also teased the debut of two looks that weren’t shown during the label’s Paris Fashion Week presentation.

“Two more Balmain Latex looks coming that we’re (sic) not in his show! I might just keep them coming all night,” the brunette beauty wrote on Twitter.

In two of the images she posted on her Instagram Stories, Kourtney Kardashian was also spotted wearing a brown bodysuit by Balmain.

Demi Lovato has revealed the powerful meaning behind her new angelic tattoo.

The singer took a break from Instagram and Twitter ahead of her performances at the Grammy Awards and Super Bowl, but now, she’s returned to tell her fans and followers about the body art, which features doves carrying a fallen angel.

Demi recruited Los Angeles-based tattoo artist Alessandro Capozzi to create the design, which took eight hours to complete at the end of last year.

“Getting tatted by him was an experience I’ve never had before…,” the 27-year-old wrote. “No idea what I was going to get done, I told him about my life and where I was at in that moment and we created a combination on images that best symbolized the spiritual awakening I was having.

“Having a fallen angel being lifted by three, pure, angelic doves (the Holy Trinity) as her inner light is being guided by a higher consciousness, and the disintegration of her dark wings was representing the darkness I was shedding (sic).”

Demi also gushed about Alessandro, calling him “extremely talented” and adding: “Thank you for this special experience… the only bummer is I can’t physically see this amazing artwork because it’s on my back! Haha.”

Meanwhile, the star also thanked her manager, Scooter Braun, for introducing her to the tattoo artist.

Demi recently released Anyone, the cry-for-help song she recorded days before her 2018 drug overdose, after performing it at the Grammys last month.

Cher has been tapped to headline Dsquared2’s latest fashion campaign.

The Hollywood icon is starring in the new spring/summer 2020 marketing imagery for the Milan-based label, helmed by twin brothers Dean and Dan Caten.

Shot by photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the black-and-white image depicts Cher gazing into the distance while wearing ripped jeans and a black sweater with the word “Icon” emblazoned across the front.

“This Is What Happens When The Three Of Us Get Together. Dean, Dan & Cher. #D2SS20 Happy 25TH Anniversary,” the 73-year-old captioned a snap of the campaign on her Instagram page.

The Catens also posted the campaign to their Twitter feed along with the word: “ICONIC”.

The imagery was directed by Giovanni Bianco, with Serena Radaelli tasked with styling Cher’s signature brunette locks and Isamaya Ffrench in charge of make-up.

It is not known if Cher will be appearing in other imagery for the brand.

The Catens launched their company in 1995, and over the years, have built up a reputation for offering edgy sportswear, elegant dresses, and sharp suiting, counting the likes of Madonna, Britney Spears, and Beyonce as fans.

To mark the 25th anniversary of the brand, the duo celebrated by having Sister Sledge perform during their Milan Fashion Week presentation in January.
