Priyanka Chopra continues her push to conquer America with this latest bit of news. It seems that the Bollywood star and ‘Exotic‘ crooner so impressed Guess president Paul Marciano that he signed her to headline Guess’s Christmas ad campaign after only one meeting.

Priyanka wryly noted “I’m like their first brown model. For a global fashion brand, for them to move their campaign into a global space, for me it’s an honor.”  The actress has already taken some great looking black and white photos for the campaign with photographer Bryan Adams and joins the likes of Claudia Schiffer, Anna Nicole Smith, and Kate Upton as the featured face of Guess clothing.

Priyanka went on to say “I’m not too American and I’m not too Indian, but I’m a global citizen and that’s what most people are today. And I don’t want to have to change who I am to try and fit in or cater to a certain audience. ” The 31-year old first came to prominence when she became the youngest Miss World winner ever at the tender age of 17 back in 2000 and has gone on to star in numerous, highly successful Bollywood productions since then.

You can look for Priyanka to reprise her role as Priya in ‘Krrish 3‘ with co-stars Hrithik Roshan and Aamir Khan. She has also just announced that her latest single, a solo effort, will drop in December. This follows on successful collaborations with Pitbull and will.i.am on the singles ‘Exotic‘ and ‘In My City‘, respectively.

Another Bollywood diva takes her talents to a whole new level.

Actress Deepika Padukone is taking her simple, yet chic fashion sense and collaborating with Van Heusen on it’s Woman’s “Limited Edition” collection.  The co-creation will be about monochromatic shades.  Think old Hollywood glam with a touch of modern chic with lots of rosy pinks and cobalt blues.  It is reported that the actress has been pitching ideas for the brand.

We’ll I’m hardly a designer. I think I am someone who has ideas but I’m not very good at executing. But I’m very open to seeing new things and sharing my ideas and then of course I need people to help me put it all together, It’s a little bit of what I already have and what I would like to see myself wearing. The collection is really about wearing your own personality. That’s something I’ve always believed in. It’s important to not forget who you are.” said the actress in a statement.

When asked, the Brand head at Van Heusen, Vinay Bhopatkar had this to stay: “We are absolutely delighted to co-create a line with Deepika Padukone exclusively for Van Heusen.

Remember when Bollywood diva Priyanka Chopra sang the intro to last season’s NFL Thursday Night Kickoff?  Well, it seems that Ms Chopra has moved up the ladder, and will be performing for the NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football this season.

Rumor has it, the Bollywood bombshell will be replacing R&B singer CeeLo Green.

Having grown up in both New York and Boston, two major [rival] football cities and coincidentally the two teams playing the night of my big debut, it’s nothing short of surreal to be with NFL Network as the opening act for Thursday Night Football. ‘In My City’ was my first single, it has a very special place in my heart, and I am beyond excited to bring the amazing energy of the track to the NFL’s passionate fans,” said Chopra.

Priyanka’s song In My City, featuring Will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas, will be used again this year for the opening of Thursday Night’s Football, when the New York Jets visit the New England Patriots. Woohoo!

Each week for 13 weeks this season, NFL Network will move into a new and exciting city and bring fans from around the world with us for a great game. Priyanka’s single ‘In My City’ is the perfect song to set the stage for Thursday Night Football and to welcome viewers to each city,” said Mark Quenzel, the Senior Vice President of Production and Programming for NFL Network.

Keep up the good work Priyanka!

Source say, Rapper Kanye West is a bit too possessive of his baby Mama after the birth of their daughter.

The 36-year old reportedly runs everything in the relationship.  We hear he’s telling Kim’s family what to, and NOT to post on Twitter, and is going as far as telling Kim how to dress.  “When the time comes for her to step out into public, he wants her to be wearing outfits he picked out for her. He’s telling her sisters, mom and everyone what they can and cannot post on twitter,” said a source.

She has to do what he says and knows the littlest thing can set him off.  She knows not to push Kanye too far. She’s doing her best to keep him happy,” they added.

The controlling side of Kanye started coming out after the birth of their first child, North West.  Sources say Kanye tells the socialite what she can and cannot do on a regular basis.
