Nia's Blogging and Vlogging Website

There are some really funny stories headlining the newspapers that I've trawled through this week, including Rebel Wilson getting covered with green slime and Henry Cavill posing for Superman selfies in the heart of New York City.

Also in the celebrity news is Harry Styles, who is all set to be a Hollywood movie star, and who knew that Selena Gomez was so popular on Instagram? Not me, that's who! And finally, there's big pizza news, with Domino's inventing a futuristic robot that will deliver pizzas straight to your door.

Horse Shampoo For Hair

Known as Mane 'n Tail, this enriched shampoo is currently stocked by Urban Outfitters and Amazon, although it has been stocked by Liberty in London for more than three years. People are saying that not only does it make your hair softer and less frizzy, but that it even makes it grow more quickly. I'm planning to test Mane 'n Tail out soon myself for a YouTube video, so look out for that!

Harry Styles the Movie Star

Well, now it turns out that the talented heartthrob singer is going to turn his hand to acting, in an attempt to become a big-time movie star.

Harry Styles has been headhunted by famed film director Christopher Nolan (off of The Dark Knight trilogy) to appear in the upcoming blockbuster Dunkirk, as well as making a cameo appearance on the second series of comedy drama Scream Queens. Harry's bandmates are said to be supportive and not in the slightest bit jealous of his predicted success, while Harry himself is preparing to have all of his long hair cut short, so that he can play the part of a soldier in the Second World War's infamous Battle of Dunkirk movie.

Slimy Rebel Wilson

To celebrate her award, excited Rebel decided to cover herself with buckets of green slime, before posing for a photo with handsome Australian actor friend Rahart Adams.

Rebel shot to fame for her role as Fat Amy in the Pitch Perfect movie, and the third installment of this franchise (imaginatively called Pitch Perfect 3) is currently schedule for released in 2017, with lovely Elizabeth Banks set to direct the film.

Who Is the Most Popular Person on Instagram?

No, it is not Justin Bieber, David Beckham, Taylor Swift or and Kim Kardashian West, that crown goes to Bieber-ex Selena Gomez, who currently boasts almost 70 million followers.

However, Taylor Swift is snapping at Selena's heels, with her 69.2 million followers, although the two do seem to be good friends rather than Instagram rivals, at least that's what they say publicly anyway.

Superman Selfies

The cheeky actor stood in the middle of Times Square, amongst other busy locations, and was even wearing a Superman T-shirt, while everyone walked by without even batting an eyelid. Henry made a short video of his antics and posted it to his popular Instagram account, where it soon racked up almost 100,000 likes. He captioned his funny video with the words: 'Dear Doubter, The glasses are good enough. Regards, Superman.'

Pizza Delivery Robot

Together they have invented an actual robotic vehicle to deliver your pizza to your door, piping hot and ready to eat.

The revolutionary electronic pizza droid can reach up to speeds of 20 kmph and is already being tested on bicycle paths, although it is not yet clear whether or not it will ever be able to use roads.
