The Dredge: Meet the Muscles from Mullingar

Niall Horan shows off his guns. And the rest of today’s celebrity dirt.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt – from the top to the very bottom.

#NIALL THE NAILER: Niall Horan has come a long way. Remember when he was just a weedy little Mullingar lad, trying out for X Factor with his new pals from England? Well, let us refresh your memory:

Look at wee Niall. His trousers are hanging off him and he can barely lift that puny box. (Katie Collins/PA Archive)

Well, celebrity has changed him. Not only is he hanging out with megastars like Bressie – OK, we’re joking, Niall Horan could buy and sell Bressie between mouthfuls of Nando’s – but he has now officially got guns.



That’s why he’s the Muscles from Mullingar. Hold us, Niall. Hold us.

#SIRIUS BUSINESS: Al Pacino smashed up his iPhone and called Siri a witch. And all while he was having dinner with Christopher Walken.

Apparently Pacino went to the jacks,  and shortly afterwards Walken heard “loud pounding”:

Rushing in, he found Al furiously stomping his smartphone — smashing it into pieces! “Smart phone, my ass,” Pacino was bellowing. Said an eyewitness: “Al had been trying to use the so-called ‘Siri’ feature on his iPhone, but the automated voice kept giving him wrong information. Angrily eyeballing his shattered phone, Pacino snarled, “That’s the last time that f***ing witch speaks to me!’”

#POOR MICHELLE: Beyoncé reunited with her Destiny’s Child bandmates for the BET Awards.

Poor Michelle.

Look at this photo of Queen Bee showing a rough cut of her new video to Kelly Rowland while Michelle Williams desperately cranes her neck to see:


Poor Michelle.

And then Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland went off somewhere, and Michelle was just left doing that thing where you check your phone intently, as if you've got some very important emails to answer.


But really you're just playing Candy Crush Saga / sending texts to yourself.

Poor Michelle.

#GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS: Lena Dunham and Jemima Kirke - aka Hannah and Jessica from Girls - took a break from filming the third season to re-enact a Miley Cyrus music video.

Here's the original. The relevant part is around 1:30.
