This week, Neil Calloway looks at why soccer movies tend to bomb at the box office…
The timing could not have been better; name recognition could not have been higher, it was the perfect time to release a film about an organisation that dominated the headlines for the past few weeks. It doesn’t always work out like that, though, and United Passions, the film telling the story of FIFA, made a miserly $918 dollars during its opening weekend. That’s not a typo. That’s nine hundred and eighteen dollars. Turns out there is such a thing as bad publicity.
In fairness, the film was only released on ten screens, but a screen average of just over $90 does not bode well for a film that cost somewhere between $25 and $32 million dollars, with FIFA itself putting up around $17 million of the budget. On a limited release elsewhere in the world (as well as FIFA, »

Can you believe it's been ten years since Gwen Stefani's "Hollaback Girl" was on top of the charts? The 45-year-old singer has been in the music business since the late '80s, when she joined No Doubt, but you wouldn't know it by looking at her evolution over the years. Sure, Gwen has ditched the bindis and furry bikini tops she was known for in the late '90s and early 2000s, but much of her look - the platinum blond hair, the red lipstick, the rock-hard abs - and personal life has stayed the same. She continues to make music with No Doubt, albeit not as frequently, and she and husband Gavin Rossdale have been going strong since 1996. Still not convinced? Keep reading to see how little Gwen has changed over the years, and don't forget to check out more ageless stars. »
No better way to start off your Monday than with a group of hot celeb dads and their cute kids! A ton of stars gathered in Los Angeles with their children on Sunday as Safe Kids Worldwide hosted Safe Kids Day, presented by Nationwide. The event focused on bringing together families to raise awareness and funds to prevent childhood injuries -- and was attended by celebs like Drew Barrymore, Mark Wahlberg, Gavin Rossdale, Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Donald Faison. It's rare that we see Rossdale or Gwen Stefani out with their children, so it was a real treat to see the Bush frontman attend the event with son Kingston. With his blonde 'do, the now-8-year-old looked like the perfect mix of his two famous parents. Can you believe how old he is already?! And we were surprised to see Faison attend the event with son Rocco -- especially considering he »

Talk about an adorable family outing! Gwen Stefani and her two sons Kingston, 8, and Zuma, 6, were among many tennis fans at the 2015 BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, Calif. today. The 45-year-old No Doubt singer looked fabulous per usual in trendy, oversized pink sunglasses and a denim top with bright red lipstick on. The blond beauty had her two boys on either side of her as the trio watched the sporting match from their seats. As for Kingston, he sported his signature trendy dyed hairdo while his little bro rocked cool glasses. Too cute. While Gavin Rossdale wasn't there with his brood Monday, he and Stefani did attend a match together on Friday. The lovebirds watched Roger Federer play »
Gwen Stefani stepped out for an appointment in La on Wednesday, and we can't help but acknowledge the strong Marilyn Monroe vibes she was giving off. The singer was clad in a white t-shirt and black pants with zippers (not so Marilyn-like, we admit), but her platinum-blond bob and signature red lip looked too similar to the late actress to ignore. She's always rocked a Marilyn-inspired look, but these most recent snaps are proof that she might be getting more inspired by Marilyn every day. Last time we spotted her, she was out and about looking very Old Hollywood at a fashion event with Rachel Zoe and Hilary Duff, though it seems like the No Doubt frontwoman has been laying low otherwise; she could presumably be putting the finishing touches on her first solo album in eight years, which is due out this year. Gwen also covers the March issue »
While Daisy Lowe is kind of a big deal across the pond, we often forget Gavin Rossdale has a fully-grown daughter stateside! The 26-year-old model hit the red carpet at the Brit Awards in London on Wednesday night, where she put her sexy silhouette on display in a snug, low-cut black gown with a daring slit up the thigh. Lowe, the daughter of the Bush frontman and ex-girlfriend/fashion designer Pearl Lowe, paired her curve-hugging look with a bold red lip and blunt bangs. The brunette beauty has been a fixture of the runway for years and most recently strut her stuff on the catwalk for Vivienne Westwood at London Fashion Week just this past Sunday. Neither Rossdale or Daisy (or Gavin's wife Gwen Stefani) knew he had a daughter until 2004, when Lowe was already 15. In an 2010 interview with Details, Gavin opened up about what it was like to play »

In the latest issue of Cosmo, the singer is opening up about her marriage and says she did not think she could get a guy as attractive as Rossdale growing up.
"I never really saw myself landing a guy that hot. I don't know if I was a nerd in high school, but I definitely wasn't the super-cute cheerleader so I never saw myself getting somebody like that," she says.

Stefani's lucky year came in 1995 when she first met Rossdale when No Doubt went on tour opening for Bush, the band he's the lead singer of. Since then, they've been inseparable. And twenty years later, she can't help but acknowledge his physical appearance. "But I do think he's quite handsome. It's not the most important thing about him, but it is nice »
She has been getting a lot of exposure recently by way of her repeated statements, via a variety of platforms, that the whole idea of her success and general popularity still blows her away. All things considered, it’s a pretty interesting take on things, especially given the way she is presenting it, which is fantastically real.
The issue will be on newsstands on the 10th, and you can catch some highlights below, and the full article at Cosmo.com here.

Gwen Stefani still has the hots for her hubby Gavin Rossdale. The No Doubt frontwoman covers the March issue of Cosmopolitan, where she opens up about married life with the Bush singer and her successful music career. Gwen and Gavin tied the knot in 2002 and the cute couple has three adorable boys together. While the singers still seem closer than ever, Stefani admits that her marriage takes work. "We go through so much together—it’s a miracle that we could stay together this long," she confesses. "[Gavin’s] on a short tour right now, and he wrote me the sweetest note this morning. It’s good to have those days when we both do our own things. I think that’s what keeps relationships going, when both people can be themselves and have their own individuality. That’s especially important for women—it’s hard to find time for yourself," she continues. »

As she explains in Cosmopolitan's March issue, "I never really saw myself landing a guy that hot.

You often see Gwen Stefani's two older sons Kingston and Zuma rocking colorful nails while out and about, and in a new interview with PrideSource, The Voice judge explains why it's important for her and husband Gavin Rossdale to let their sons express themselves exactly how they want.
Kingston, 8, has especially taken after his mom's bold fashion sense, making headlines when he sported a pink tutu at a birthday party in 2013.
"It's one of those things where, it's not like I don't think about it, but they're used to being around me, and I'm always doing my hair, makeup, nails," the 45-year-old mother of three explains about her children's unique style. "It's just normal for them. What I like to say is that being unique and original is what makes me happy, and I think that rubs off on them."
