Lucy Hale Reveals Details About 50 Shades of Grey Audition

Say what? Sweet little Lucy Hale auditioned for the 50 Shades of Grey? It’s true! The Pretty Little Liars alum and country newcomer read for the steamy role of Anastasia Steele in the upcoming film. But Lucy reveals to MTV it wasn’t exactly a good fit.

“I was like, ‘I don’t know guys, I have to go home to my grandparent’s house in a few months at Christmas, I don’t know if I can do this.'”

She also said the two page monologue she read for her audition was a bit “awkward” (you think!).

“It was like a two-page monologue of dialogue of exactly what you would think it would be. Very uncomfortable.”

Well there no uncomfortable roles in Lucy’s near future! The part eventually went to Dakota Johnson and Lucy went on to release her debut country album – no complaints here!

Do you think Lucy would have played a good Anastasia in 50 Shades of Grey?

Miranda Lambert to Open a Bed and Breakfast

Miranda Lambert is one of country music’s biggest stars – and biggest entrepreneurs! Not only does she have her own boutique, The Pink Pistol, and her own line of shoes, she now has her own bed and breakfast!

Miranda and husband Blake Shelton purchased the historic home, called Ladysmith, last spring and gave no indication on what they would do with the property. Coincidently, the eight bedroom home and conference center sits just across the street from The Pink Pistol. This had many thinking the two would open a bed and breakfast – and they were right!

It looks like Miranda has big plans for Ladysmith.  “It was built in 1901, so it’s been over a year of renovations.  It is a bed and breakfast but it’s also an events center, so you can rent it for weddings and showers and private parties and all kinds of stuff.”

Miranda is not giving an exact time for the Ladysmith to open it’s doors saying, “I’m not setting a date because I don’t want to set myself up for failure, but it’s really beautiful and I think it’s going to be so much fun for people.”

Get The Look: Danielle Bradbery

It’s a well known secret that my favorite part of any award show is the red carpet! The recent CMT Music Awards in Nashville was no exception. This award show, which I’ve attended twice, tends to be a bit more casual but still super glamourous. Take Danielle Bradbery’s red carpet look for example! This 17 year old up and coming superstar looks simple yet amazing! And the best part is, this outfit is easy – and affordable – to recreate!

*Note: I’m not rich by any stretch. My picks tend to be on the more affordable side and I try to pick websites where I would actually shop.

Top: Daisy Street $9

Skirt: Dolly Rocka $54

Shoes: Halogen “Katrina” Bootie  $99

Necklace: My Posh Shop  $45

Clutch: Daisy Street  $30

Danielle Bradbery Opens Up About Her New Life as a Country Star

Being a huge fan of NBC’s The Voice made me extremely excited to interview it’s latest country winner, Danielle Bradbery. The 17 year old Heart of Dixie Singer is not only cute as a button but ridiculously talented! She filled me in on her tour with Brad Paisley, her upcoming writing venture and even her boyrfriend – sorry boys! I was very impressed with her free spirit and willingness to open up. I honestly can’t wait to see how her career develops in the next few years. Mark my words, this girl is going to be a star!

Johnny Depp Plays Guitar Onstage with Willie Nelson

Shut the front door! Johnny Depp – yes, the famed actor – jumped on stage to play lead guitar with Willie Nelson!

Willie was playing a set for the South for Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas, when “John” was introduced to the crowd. Johnny, disguised as John in a fashionable fedora and button down vest, played along side Willie to “On The Road Again,” one of the country singer’s most famous songs.

Apparently Johnny Depp wasn’t the only special guest during the song. ABC affiliate KUVE in Austin reported via Facebook  that Willie’s son, Lukas Nelson, was also playing during the set.

This isn’t the first time Johnny Depp has crashed concerts by playing his guitar. He’s played with Alice Cooper and an amazing 30 second solo with Aerosmith. I do think, however, that his duet with Willie is the best. I may be a bit bias.

Carrie Underwood Attends New York Fashion Week

Carrie Underwood has made her fashion week debut! The country trend setter was spotted in New York City over the weekend attending the Rebecca Minkoff and Peter Som shows for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.

Carrie, pictured in a pink Ted Baker dress, is no stranger to fashion so it’s a bit surprising that this is her first time attending the big event, but she has a good reason. She told the AP she doesn’t get a lot of time to attend the shows despite her love for fashion. “I just thought I’d come in for the day and go along for the ride,” she says.

The singer also found time to chat with E! News about one of her favorite designers, Rebecca Minkoff. In the video below she gushes over the feminine style of Minkoff’s designs.
