Chicks Dig Cars: Female Celebs and the Vehicles They Love To Drive

beyonce rolls 570x570 Chicks Dig Cars: Female Celebs and the Vehicles They Love To Drive

Hot and classy automobiles can sometimes seem like the exclusive toys of a man’s world, with very little room for females among the true enthusiasts. But some of our favorite female celebrities in Hollywood and elsewhere are proving that you can wear stilettos and a tight skirt and still know a thing or two about fabulous taste in cars.

Their hot rides make the ultimate accessory. Here are some of our favorite female celebrities and the cars they love to drive.

The Celeb: Ellen Degeneres

Her Ride: Porsche 911 Turbo

Why We Love It: With a classically sleek look, the smooth frame, and the horsepower under the hood, who wouldn’t love a Porsche? However, we particularly love Ellen’s Porsche because it comes with her sense of humor. She jokes that she “loves to drive fast” and that’s “why she I married a Portia!”

The Celeb: Beyoncé Knowles

Her Ride: 1959 Rolls Royce Convertible

Why We Love It: When it comes to gifts you can get from your husband, this one ranks pretty high on the list of “perfect.” With all the elegance and grace that she possesses, and the fierceness and style that comes through in Sasha Fierce, we couldn’t possibly see the Queen B driving anything else!

The Celeb: Heidi Klum

Her Ride: VW Beetle Convertible

Why We Love It: When it comes to cars that can be described as “cute,” the Volkswagen Beetle pretty much takes the cake. Her own outpouring of love for her car and the company that made it, in the commercial she shot for Volkswagen, makes our love for this chick’s ride all the stronger.

The Celeb: Paris Hilton

Her Ride: Bentley GT

Why We Love It: Luxury town cars are already a sleek and chic option for anybody. Not only is Hilton’s Bentley a great choice for the ultimate uptown girl, but her customized diamond-encrusted dash and the signature bubble-gum pink paint job truly make it her own. The socialite stays true to herself and makes her presence known no matter where she is.

The Celeb: Cher

Her Ride: Harley Davidson motorcycles

Why We Love It: As a diva who has always sported edgy looks, and often favored punk-rock elements such as spikes, chains, leather, and zippers, this veteran pop star and film actress is a tried-and-true biker chick. While the make and model of her bike has changed and been updated over the years, one thing has stayed the same: She always rides a Harley. Cher knows what she likes and she doesn’t waste time on what she doesn’t, and we love her for that!

In a hyper-aware, digitally connected world that perpetually places these women in the spotlight, their sweet rides can say a lot about their personalities.

But more importantly, these vehicles provide these lovely ladies with fast and furious escapes from the hectic Hollywood lives they lead. They can truly enjoy a long drive, as any auto enthusiast would.

1958c31a39432ffde072f43fe018773f Kelis’ ‘Food’: Stream The Full Album And See Her Upcoming North American Tour Dates

For her sixth album Food, “Jerk Ribs” singer/culinary school grad Kelis turned to Dave Sitek for guidance on the production end. And like CSS did with their 2013 LP Planta, Kelis spent time recording the record at Sitek’s house in Los Angeles. The result is a trek through indie-soul territory, which we’ve already gotten a, um, taste for with previously released tracks like “Rumble.”

Now you can whet your appetite by hearing Food in full ahead of its release next week (on April 22), courtesy of a stream on NPR‘s site, as well as see the dates below for Kelis’ just-announced seven-date North American tour in support of the album. Bon appétit!

Alicia Keys, Kendrick Lamar & Pharrell Unite In “It’s On Again” Video: Watch

923481929414af4d58bc957e7c395a8a Alicia Keys, Kendrick Lamar & Pharrell Unite In “It’s On Again” Video: Watch

Three superstars unite for the superhero visuals of “It’s On Again” from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 soundtrack. The visual for the Alicia Keys track starts off with Kendrick Lamar barking his verse into a walkie talkie, setting the stage for some sort of rebel heist that’s going down. Keys is the ringleader, I suppose, motivating the troops or whatever, and the ubiquitous Pharrell mans the control room (fitting since he co-wrote and produced the song), for what ends up being an operation to turn the New York City skyline into a giant EQ visualizer. Wasn’t there a commercial that did this recently?

Also, what does this all have to do with Spidey? Who cares! Because he’s in the video, too, as is the film’s composer (and G I R L collaborator) Hans Zimmer.

Check it out up top.

Lily Allen Dedicates ‘Sheezus’ To Amy Winehouse

56d4e6a0d13dd530d0369dbba871897d Lily Allen Dedicates ‘Sheezus’ To Amy Winehouse

Lily Allen will dedicate her third LP Sheezus (out May 5) to Amy Winehouse. While Allen considered the late singer to be an acquaintance, she also found herself relating to the increased media attention that surrounded Winehouse. “She was not in a great place when we knew each other, so I don’t feel I knew Amy,” Allen said to The Telegraph. “I knew a version of Amy.”

Allen and Winehouse both released albums (Alright, Still and Back to Black, respectively) to critical acclaim in 2006. A few years later, Allen would claim that Winehouse “is very different to what people portray her as being,” compared to headlines of her high-profile drug abuse – “a very clever, intelligent, witty, funny person who can hold it together.” Allen continues to defend her to this day.

“What she had to deal with was 10 times anything I had to deal with,” Allen says. “She’d sold a hell of a lot more albums than me, and there was a lot more interest in her. There were people outside her home 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I know what that was like on a much smaller level, and I felt trapped.”

Such comments are a far gentler criticism directed at celebrity culture, compared to what else Sheezus has to offer. While her “Hard Out Here” video took aim at Robin Thicke‘s “Blurred Lines” and hip-hop video tropes, the title track compares herself to a boxer re-entering the ring: “Second best will never cut it for the divas, give me that crown, bitch, I want to be Sheezus,” according to The Telegraph.

“I am a bit scared – worried about how am I going to be received, and what my kids are going to think, in retrospect, when they grow up, and because I’m not bigger than Beyonce people will write about it as being a failure. Not that I’m putting myself in the same bracket as Beyonce,” Allen says, adding, “There doesn’t have to be a king in music, in the way that Beyonce is the queen. You don’t see after the Oscars, ‘Who Wore It Better: Brad Pitt or Matthew McConaughey?’”

Lana Del Rey’s ‘Ultraviolence’: 8 Things We Know So Far

ddfaac659949f39d277ba7bc02c55e48 Lana Del Rey’s ‘Ultraviolence’: 8 Things We Know So Far

Even with her tour underway, one of two Coachella sets done and “West Coast” out, Lana Del Rey has somehow managed to keep the details of Ultraviolence under wraps. It’s no small feat for a major pop star these days — especially one who’s as prone to leaks as Lana is. A big reveal can’t be too far off, but to hold fans over until she drops another vague bombshell on Twitter or Instagram, we’ve combed through all the scraps of information that have been floating around for the past year or so and compiled a handy list of the eight things we know about Ultraviolence so far.

Head below for an idea of what we can expect from LDR’s highly anticipated new album.

1. It’s dark
Lana deploys sadness as a capital-V Vibe better than almost anyone in pop, yet she always couches it with a certain dreamy quality — but perhaps that dreamy sheen will be stripped away on Ultraviolence. Unless this is a case of Katy Perry ditching the darkness at the last minute, Ultraviolence is shaping up to be a morose affair, as Lana revealed during a Twitter Q&A in January, “It’s so wrong and exquisite… It is absolutely gorgeous — darker then the first — so dark it’s almost unlistenable and wrong.”

“West Coast” certainly evoked a smokier, seedier vibe than her elegantly wasted persona of Born To Die/Paradise, but “dark” and “unlistenable” is all relative in the pop world. Yeezus this is not.

Speaking of…

2. It’s spiritual
Last February, she said for this album she “moved on to a more spiritual place lyrically.” We’re not sure how she can get any more spiritual than singing “Jesus is my bestest friend” and depicting Eve in Tropico, but apparently all that biblical fare didn’t sate Lana’s divine hunger.

3. It will be out very soon
This is yet another bit of news from the pouty lips of Lana herself. In February while signing autographs for fans, she replied to one who asked about the album’s release, saying “It’s coming out soon, May 1.” Luckily, the reveal was caught on camera, but there’s been a suspicious silence from her camp following that reveal. To be honest, we wouldn’t be surprised if Ultraviolence turned out to be that top secret Beyonce-style iTunes release that everyone’s been whispering about.

4. The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach headed production
After Lana tweeted, “Me and Dan Auerbach are excited to present you Ultraviolence,” Revolt TV confirmed that the winner of 2013′s Producer Of The Year Grammy was behind the boards for Lana’s project. In addition, the official press release for “West Coast” names Auerbach as the song’s producer.

This also means that…

5. It was recorded in Nashville
Or some of it, at least. Auerbach is based out of Nashville, and Del Rey was spotted there at the beginning of the year, which adds another layer to this being a new era separate from the gloomy L.A. glamour on her two prior releases. Again, the “West Coast” presser confirmed that that song was recorded in Nashville.

6. “Meet Me In The Pale Moonlight” is definitely not on it
After the disco-tinged track hit the Web, Lana was quick to clarify that the song was four years old, and that she wrote it for someone else.

7. Leaks may have caused her to tweak the tracklist 
“Black Beauty” was the first song Lana mentioned for her new album, and a demo of it leaked soon after. Then another song leaked. And another. And on and on, until LDR had to address the leaks, saying that some of the songs were indeed intended for the new LP.

“I do feel discouraged, yeah. I don’t really know what to put on the record. But I guess I could just put them on and see what happens,” she told Radio.com, adding that she even slowed down her work on the record “’cause my life is like completely invaded.” So the fate of “Black Beauty” is still unknown.

8. Cigarettes are a motif
Lana sings about burning Parliaments in “West Coast,” the album’s billboards show her lighting up a cig and she even smoked a butt during her Coachella set. Probably something about the inherently cool appeal of nihilism. Or maybe she just has a habit.
