Looks like Justin Bieber wasn’t drunk afterall when he was arrested last week for a DUI. According to the toxicology report obtained and published by TMZ, Justin Bieber tested positive for marijuana and prescription medication. The report shows that Justin Bieber had both THC and Alprazolam in his system at the time of his arrest., which we pretty much know as marijuana and Xanax. Justin Bieber tested negative for cocaine, opiates, meth, and other prescription drugs. Maybe Justin Bieber pleading not guilty was him being truthful after all. Unfortunately for him though, Justin Bieber now faces another charge in connection with a separate incident in Toronto. According to police there, he was involved in an altercation with a limo driver shortly before the new year where he hit the driver from behind. Justin Bieber’s rep said in a statement, "We anticipate that this matter will be treated as a summary offense, the equivalent of a misdemeanor in the United States. Our position is that Mr. Bieber is innocent. As the matter is now before the Court, it would be inappropriate to address the specifics of either the allegation or of our defense at this time." Guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens!
Anne Hathaway keeps talking about her haters! The 31-year-old actress, who disappeared from the spotlight for a while after her Oscar win in February 2013, said she knows there are people out there who don't like her. When she was doing an interview about why she decided to return with her new film, she said, "We had been working on the script for two years before we actually started shooting. All of the elements came together in that moment. I don't want to bring up a sore subject or anything—I think my publicist is probably like, 'No, no no'—but I had just taken a little bit of a beating from the Internet.” She also said that she took a break because her impression was that people needed a break from her. A break from Anne Hathaway? NEVER!
As ratings for Keeping Up With The Kardashians continue to fall, the show executives are trying to get the show moving in another direction to score ratings. That direction: Kim Kardashian’s baby North West. My sources are telling me that Kim Kardashian is being pressured to feature her daughter with fiancé Kanye West on the show. Even though Kim Kardashian thinks her daughter is ready to join the family business, Kanye West has forbidden it, even if that means the end of the show. Ryan Seacrest, who produces the show, reached out to Kim Kardashian and asked her to consider allowing North on the show, even in just a limited amount. Kim Kardashian has always been an open book to her fans, but once Kanye showed up, that all changed. He’ll be very happy when the show is over.

Omaze, a charity famous for giving anyone the chance to win once-in-a-lifetime experiences that also support social missions, has put together yet another amazing opportunity for fans… and it will only cost you a $10 dollar donation!

You'll mingle with the stars and learn what it's like to act, write, win Oscars, and just be awesome” haha! All proceeds from this experience will benefit the Eastern Congo Initiative and Water.org. The odds of winning are slim, but imagine hanging with Ben Affleck and Matt Damon for just 10 dollars and all because you donated to a great cause!
If there’s one thing we can’t deny, it’s that Beyonce looks incredible lately! At the Grammys her body looked unreal and she didn’t hold back from showing it off! Well, her results can be partly attributed to her 22 day vegan challenge that she took back in December for her husband Jay Z’s birthday. She completely cut out gluten, dairy and soy and maintained a plant-based diet for three weeks! Well guess what? Looks like Beyonce loved it so much that she’s ready for round two! She just posted a picture on instagram of a vegan protein bar with banana slices. Who can blame her with a body like that? I don’t know, not for me!
Congratulations to One Direction! They are officially the most popular band and most popular recording artists in the world! Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne have been named Global Recording Artists of 2013! The honor is based on One Direction’s 2013 digital downloads, music streaming and physical CD sales. They have had GLOBAL SUCCESS. Their third studio album topped the U.S. Billboard Top 200 chart, making One Direction the first group in the charts history to debut at #1 with its first three albums. Eminem came in second place, Justin Timberlake was third and Bruno Mars was fourth. Congratulations to One Direction!
We’re all excited to see Bruno Mars perform at the Super Bowl halftime show, and Bruno Mars says he feels HONORED that the NFL is letting him perform. Bruno Mars said, "I feel like a new artist," at a press conference. “The NFL is such a prestigious stage ... and I'm so grateful for that." So, is he nervous? NOPE! Bruno Mars started rehearsing at the stadium two days ago and cold weather will be an issue. He said, "It's like the microphone turns into a Popsicle. We're getting some heaters on everything." When asked if he would reveal any surprises, he said: "I'm going to give T-shirts away after the show." Bruno Mars will be joined by the Red Hot Chili Peppers – the first act that came to his mind when he thought of collaborating on the Super Bowl stage. Bruno Mars will hit the field Sunday when the Seattle Seahawks play the Denver Broncos at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey!
Justin Bieber really isn’t trying to make himself look any better. That’s because he has been charged with CRIMINAL ASSAULT for allegedly attacking a limousine driver! Justin Bieber took a limo in Toronto in December and got into some sort of fight. At the time the rumor going around was that a member of his team was being investigated for messing up the driver. But now the investigation has taken a turn, and Toronto cops wanted to talk to Justin Bieber but he didn't come in for an interview and they got annoyed. Justin Bieber is now in Toronto and finally went to the police station. He will be booked for assault, given a citation and released. The accusation… that Justin Bieber physically attacked the limo driver himself and didn’t simply order an attack! On TOP of all this, the petition to deport Justin Bieber back to Canada has garnered over 100,000 signatures, so the White House now has to officially review it! The petition calls Justin Bieber a dangerous and reckless drug abuser who is "not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence." Sounds about right at this point!
Good thing Hugh Grant knows how to handle this department! The British bachelor and actor is now the father of three love children after Swedish TV producer Anna Elisabet Eberstein secretly gave birth to a baby boy in September 2013. A copy of a birth certificate confirms that the child is his, listing the baby’s surname as "Grant," and the actor's full name, Hugh John Mungo Grant, is listed as the father on the document. Hugh Grant's rep did not return requests for comment. Oddly enough, this woman was pregnant at the same time as Tinglan Hong, who gave birth to her second child from Hugh Grant, a son named Felix, in December 2013. There's no word yet on the status of Hugh Grant's current relationship with either women.
That didn’t last very long! Trace Adkins was off to rehab after he got into a fight with a Trace Adkins impersonator on a cruise ship, remember that? Well, just 14 days after he entered the Florida facility for alcoholism, he left! Trace Adkin’s father is seriously ill and he felt he needed to be at his bedside immediately. When the illness resolves itself, Trace Adkins will then “decide” if he goes back to an inpatient program or does outpatient therapy. As for his immediate sobriety, Trace Adkins asked his therapists in Florida to put him in contact with counselors near his father. Sounds like he just wanted to get out if you ask me!
Hmm, is this all completely necessary? Kanye West and Kim Kardashian haven’t moved into their expansive Bel Air mansion because of renovations happening to the house. But get this… the renovations are totaling over six million dollars AND because of the ridiculous additions to the house, they won't be moving in until at least July or August! So, what are these important renovations?? How about basketball court, home gym, movie theater, bowling alley, custom furniture from Italy, a "top quality" recording studio, beds that were custom made out of cashmere, virgin lamb's wool & Mongolian horse hair, and about one million dollars worth of Electrolux kitchen appliances! The best thing: A SWAROVSKI ENCRUSTED FRIDGE AND FREEZER UNIT! A CRYSTAL FRIDGE? FOR REAL?
Looks like even celebrities aren’t happy with their bodies! Rihanna took the time to chat about beauty, body image and butts with E! News and what she shared is shocking! For starters, Rihanna gets her love of makeup from her mom. She couldn’t wear the makeup when she was a kid, and the first time she used it was when she was 16 years old! As for her body, Rihanna says she picks on it all the time, admitting, "It's a thing that women do. We walk in front of the mirror and we look at our butt. Is it getting bigger today? Ew. It's still flat." Rihanna, a flat butt? SHE’S CRAZY!
While Lorde was busy collecting Grammys on Sunday, everyone online was speculating that she was an age imposter! If you didn’t know, Lorde is only 17 years old! During the Grammys, everyone started to get on social media and stated that there’s no way she could be that young and that Lorde was lying about her age! Well, one website decided to put an end to the whole thing. The Harpin spent a whopping $17.02 and ordered a copy of Lorde’s birth certificate from New Zealand to prove to the world that Lorde is, in fact, a 17-year-old! The site posted a picture of her birth certificate once they got it too! Looks like she’s indeed 17, even though people were complaining about the blurriness on some parts of the picture! Lorde is aware of the rumors and she's taking it all in stride, stating to Vanity Fair, "Hi, I'm Ella, and I'm actually 45." HAHA! What gives? You can’t be young and talented?
Not many actresses can say they got their curves from pigging out on junk food! But Jennifer Lawrence isn’t most actresses, is she? Jennifer Lawrence loves to indulge on everyone’s favorite after-school snack, Doritos! And she always did it on the set of American Hustle! It got to the point where she had an orange fingerprint-smeared dress and the panicked costume designer to prove it. At an event, costume designer Michael Wilkinson recalled being grateful that he’d made a few extra copies of Jennifer Lawrence’s plunging white gown, saying, “Jennifer Lawrence is a very, let’s say, raw and intuitive young lady, and she’s not against eating Doritos and snack food in her costume. So we were glad that we had a couple backups.” THAT’S MY KIND OF GIRL! BINGE ON!
Looks like Justin Bieber is going to have a Valentine’s Day that he won’t forget this year. That’s because he has a date with a South Florida judge for the charges of his DUI, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license. Justin Bieber doesn’t have to be there, but he will plead not guilty and the process will start. Justin Bieber will have his case seen on February 14th exactly, and the judge, Judge Altfield, spent almost 25 years as an assistant state attorney prosecuting public corruption cases. Justin Bieber's Miami lawyer didn’t return calls for comment. Hopefully we’ll get to the bottom of all this and Justin Bieber may finally be punished for all his bad behavior!
Sienna Miller is the first to admit she's made some questionable decisions in the past. She reflected on her life and her alleged 2005 affair with James Bond actor Daniel Craig. She said that she nearly ruined her professional life by not "behaving the way you should" in her personal life. Sienna Miller said, "I sabotaged things. I burnt a lot of bridges.” Sienna Miller’s first high-profile romance was with Jude Law, who split from her after the affair was revealed. She then dated another man and had an affair with a man that was married and has four children. Sienna Miller said, "On set, I was first to arrive, last to leave, best friends with the crew, totally professional, no playing around. But when I wasn't at work, I wasn't behaving the way you should. I'm very lucky to have a second chance in that town...It was really bad. What was going on in my private life was not an easy thing to read about. People don't want to see films with people they don't approve of in them." After a rough few years in the spotlight, she says, she was sick of herself. Now, she is happily engaged to actor Tom Sturridge and they have a daughter, Marlowe! Nice to see that she’s learned from her mistakes and is all grown up and got it out of her system!
Looks like they were telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth! Jimmy Kimmel couldn’t believe that Bachelor stars Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici abstained from having sex for 16 months before they got married on Sunday. So before they tied the knot on live TV, he asked them both to take a lie detector test! He revealed the results of those tests on his ABC show, Jimmy Kimmel Live. You can see Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici being hooked up to a polygraph machine. After a couple of control questions were asked, the million dollar question was asked. Polygraph expert Dennis Blackstock asked the couple whether they had ever consummated the relationship. Both said "no," and the lie detector test determined that was the truth! Jimmy Kimmel’s response, "I have to say, 'I'm proud and disappointed at the same time! HAHA!!!! What’s next, YOU ARE THE FATHER?!
This could be epic! Madonna is known for her collaborations! Now it seems to be continuing! After joining Macklemore, Ryan Lewis AND Mary Lambert onstage at Sunday's Grammys, the pop legend, 55, will be performing with Miley Cyrus for her MTV Unplugged special! The stripped-down, acoustic concert was taped yesterday and airs on MTV tonight! My sources are telling me that the planned duet came together "last minute" thanks to the efforts of MTV and each of the artists’ managers! No word yet on what the two will be singing together, but I can only imagine how they will sound with one another!
Looks like this case is closed! The teenager that Kanye West beat up in the waiting room of a Beverly Hills chiropractor hit the jackpot! He scored a settlement of more than $250,000 dollars! My sources are telling me that the young man who allegedly said racial slurs to Kim Kardashian earlier this month has agreed to the civil settlement and now feels satisfied enough that he does NOT want to go forward with a criminal prosecution. The D.A. has not decided whether to charge Kanye West with battery. But I’m hearing that there's almost no chance of that happening. Why? Well now the D.A. would have an uncooperative victim. Second, the victim's alleged racial slurs will not sit well with the jury. I would probably take the money and run too!
The party is officially over! E! News is reporting that Oprah Winfrey has canceled celebrations for her upcoming 60th birthday! She was going to have a blowout party "but the guest list was getting out of control so she decided to cancel.” Instead, it looks like Oprah Winfrey celebrated her birthday with a little bit of help from Soul Cycle. It might not be anything fancy, but Oprah looked like she was having so much fun in the spinning class. She and 50 of her closest friends stopped by the West Hollywood spot and had a sweaty birthday party! Everyone wore blue shirts with "Happy Birthday Oprah" written in big green letters during the class and instructor Angela Davis made sure to include Oprah's favorite songs during the 45-minute workout! What a healthy way to spend your birthday! Happy birthday, Oprah!
Want more reasons to love George Clooney? I’m going to give you some! He went on Reddit yesterday for an Ask Me Anything segment, and in true George Clooney style, he didn’t hold back! George Clooney opened up and here’s some of the things that we learned. 1. George Clooney is either joking or he truly loves to fix shoes in his free time! 2. He kicked Leonardo DiCaprio's butt in basketball. 3. The best prank ever pulled on him involves Brad Pitt. 4. He went to the bathroom in a litter box! 4. Sandra Bullock has a drinking problem! George Clooney said every time they’re together it's funny. He said, “She’s very smart and centered, even though she does drink a lot." THROWIN HER UNDER THE BUS!
Music lovers were rocking their keyboards Sunday night during the 56th Grammy Awards. According to Twitter, the event inspired over 15.2 million Tweets! The number one thing that the tweets were about, or should I say person… LORDE! She was the most mentioned celebrity of the night. Lorde took home the Grammy for Song Of The Year AND Best pop solo win. She generated over 145,000 tweets per minute for her wins and performance! After Lorde, the second most tweeted about celebrity was Beyonce when she performed with her hubby Jay Z, followed by Taylor Swift who took third place. I’m sure that had a lot to do with her crazy head banging and dancing to Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar. And it looks like airing the Grammys earlier than normal was a good move. The show did pretty well in the ratings department, ranking in 28.4 MILLION viewers! It was a night to remember!
Speaking of the Grammys, looks like Smokey Bear is thankful for Pharrell Williams! When Pharrell Williams wore a hat that pretty much looked like it belonged to Smokey Bear at the awards show, and it caused a FIRESTORM on the Internet. Well, Smokey Bear’s rep says that they are ecstatic about Pharrell William's hat choice, and that it "is proof that Smokey is as relevant an icon today as he was 70 years ago." Smokey was created in 1944! Even Arby’s got in on the action, tweeting, "Hey @Pharrell, can we have our hat back?" But Pharrell Williams wasn’t feeling that one, because he tweeted back, "Y'all tryna start a roast beef?" That could be the best Twitter response ever. But Pharrell Williams didn’t stop there. He also posted memes of himself with his famous accessory poking fun at the social media backlash! He even tweeted another picture of himself as Toy Story character Woody! Gotta love Pharrell William’s sense of humor!
Jude Law better choose his friends wisely! That’s because he was confronted with the bombshell news that a family member sold stories about him and ex-girlfriend Sienne Miller to a newspaper when he appeared in court yesterday over a phone hacking trial that he’s right in the middle of. Former editors of Britain’s News of the World have been accused of secretly hacking various celebrities’ phones for information about their private lives, and Jude Law was present to testify about an October 2005 story that revealed his then girlfriend at the time was cheating on him with Daniel Crag. Jude Law told the court that the paper’s story, alleging that he had called Daniel Craig to confront him about the affair, was entirely true. As to how the paper got the story, Jude Law claimed he was “shocked to see the amount of information accumulated” by the paper’s staff. It was not until August of last year that he found out a family member had been leaking information to News of the World. That person had even been paid. OUCH!
People are still talking about Pink’s performance at the Grammys on Sunday night, and more specifically, about how in SHAPE she was! You couldn’t help but notice as Pink was suspended in air and doing lifts that she was TONED TONED TONED. So, how does she do it? Well Pink opened up to Fitness Magazine about how she maintains her killer body and keeps up the energy to twirl around in the air. Rule #1: Pink works out five times a week. She says, "I do an hour of cardio and an hour of yoga with my dancers before almost every show.” Rule # 2: She's Flexible With Her Diet. Pink is a healthy eater and has even go vegan before. She does give herself a break though. Rule # 3: Pink stays active, even on her off days. She does a lot of physical activities, and lastly rule # 4: Pink doesn’t beat herself up. She doesn't obsess over her body and nitpick over every single detail. She honestly thinks she could lose 10 pounds. Girl you’re crazy!
If the rumors are true, she moves quick! Is Britney Spears engaged once again? Britney Spears may have just split from her agent and last fiancé Jason Trawick last January and got with her new man David Lucado, but you never know! Britney Spears has admitted to being in LOVE with David Lucado and seems happy enjoying their low-profile relationship. Well, now she was seen with a new band on her ring finger at the soccer games of one of her sons over the weekend! She wasn’t trying to hide the ring! So far, there has been no confirmation from Britney Spears or her people. She’d be racking in the numbers. Britney Spears was married to Jason Alexander for a few hours in 2004. She then married Kevin Federline and then got engaged to Jason Trawick for roughly a year. SLOW IT DOWN!
Could this egg throwing drama surrounding Justin Bieber finally be over before it truly begins? After the police got a warrant to search Justin Bieber’s home and phone, it looks like the police are at a standstill because they haven’t found a THING! According to law enforcement sources, the Sheriff was looking for incriminating security camera footage or text message confessions, but they have hit a wall!
Without any evidence, the case may come down to eyewitness testimony, so you know what that means… Justin Bieber against his neighbor! Will the Biebs get over easy on this one? He needs it after his DUI arrest for sure! Even American citizens are petitioning the White House to deport Justin Bieber and revoke his green card. More than 40,000 non-Beliebers have signed the petition at the White House’s We The People portal! Rough!
I don’t think this is a rumor we can listen to! The latest crazy rumor about Bruce Jenner that’s going around is that he’s getting a sex change! It all started when he had a procedure done to remove his Adam’s apple. Well, these rumors are apparently NOT TRUE. Bruce Jenner is a man and he’s STAYING a man! According to Kanye West, his future stepfather-in-law has still got GAME! A source close to Kanye West said, "Bruce is an Olympic icon who can still get women at 64. He wants to be with women, not become one.” Thank goodness! Do what you want with your body Bruce!

As the original Glee cast members reunite for the Fox hit's 100th episode, one core actor is clearly missing.... the late Cory Monteith who passed away in July 2012 after overdosing on a deadly combination of heroin and alcohol. Yes, Glee has dealt with the painful loss and did a tribute to him in an October episode. But, Cory Monteith's passing has been kept fairly quiet on the show's storylines. This is all going to change according to the director of the 100th episode, Paris Barclay, who said, "There is so much feeling there and it affected the Glee family in such a profound way, and you can expect it to be dealt with in the 100th episode. It definitely comes back and is dealt with in a significant way." Cory Monteith’s loss has been especially painful for girlfriend and costar Lea Michele. She will be joined by the majority of the original cast for the episode along with fan favorite guest stars Gwyneth Paltrow and Kristin Chenoweth. The two-part 100th episode of Glee will air in April on Fox. I can’t wait to see how they pull it off!
Please don’t do it! Kristen Stewart has been making headlines for her daring fashion choices recently, but this one might not be so good. Kristen Stewart said, “If I wasn’t an actor, I would definitely do things to my hair. I would cut it more, I would dye it more. At some point I want to do a total boy cut, completely—not a pretty, girly version—like a straight up James Dean haircut. And then, I’m definitely going to shave my head before I die. I will definitely tattoo my head while it’s shaved before my hair grows back. I’m not sure which part, probably the bottom quadrant in the back. I don’t know what the tattoo would be, yet. Still thinking.” I don’t think any of us want to be around for that!
Looks like we have a statement from Tori Spelling about her marriage with Dean McDermott after he confirmed that he was undergoing treatment at an outpatient rehab facility and reportedly cheated on her a few months ago! Tori Spelling appeared to OK as she ran errands over the weekend, AND… she was wearing her wedding ring! Both Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott have remained quiet about the cheating rumors. Right now, apparently Tori Spelling is focusing on their children. Maybe there is hope for the couple afterall!
A congratulations for Britney Spears is in order, especially when everyone had their doubts! Britney Spears’ Las Vegas residency has already become the top Las Vegas show of the year! Online ticket retailer StubHub is reporting that Britney Spears’ show has already outsold similar residencies by Celine Dion, Elton John, Shania Twain and Rod Stewart. The show is also the third highest-selling Las Vegas residency ever, behind Celion Dion's show, which began in 2011, and Elton John's, which started in 2009. The best part, Britney Spears has only performed four shows of her two-year stint! Congratulations Brit Brit!
Looks like there’s more developments in the case of Justin Bieber’s arrest last week. Justin Bieber ran straight to Panama to escape the drama, and now Usher has rushed there to talk some sense into him! I’m being told that Usher flew to Panama to have a serious conversation with the Biebs after his arrest. Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun and Justin Bieber's childhood friend Ryan Butler, are also there for the sit-down. It sounds like a complete intervention because yesterday, even Justin Bieber’s mother flew in too! She’s the person with the biggest challenge of getting through to Justin Bieber. He’s reportedly been shunning her while partying with his dad, who was with him the night he was arrested for his DUI. His father flew with Justin Bieber to Panama as well. Justin Bieber did break his silence after his arrest! He tweeted, "YOU ARE ALL WORTHY NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS. BE STRONG GOD IS WITH US ALL. MY BELIEBERS CHANGED MY LIFE. I WILL FOREVER BE GRATEFUL." Justin Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, also broke his silence, tweeting, "@justinbieber love you and I will act in the manner of someone who truly cares. That is all I have to say. Thanks for all those concerned. Been a long day. Bottom line is we are defined by how we handle adversity. Be there when it counts. Love fully in good times and bad." Hmmmmm, whose side are YOU on?
Did you catch SNL on Saturday night? Jonah Hill might have been the host of the show, but he might have been upstaged for a second! That’s because he had a special cameo from his Wolf Of Wall Street costar Leonardo DiCaprio! During Jonah Hill's opening monologue, he was hounded by questions about Leonardo DiCaprio from SNL cast members. Frustrated Jonah Hill started bashing Leonardo DiCaprio. After several, Jonah Hill was joined on stage by Leonardo DiCaprio himself and the crowd freaked out! Leonardo DiCaprio came out and asked, "I have a question. What the hell are you doing man?” After some back and forth banter, it got really funny when Jonah Hill asked Leonardo DiCaprio if he would do "the thing" they used to do on set to make him feel safe. Leonardo DiCaprio then stood behind him as Jonah Hill threw his arms out, and they reenacted the famous scene between Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet from Titanic. I’m FLYING JACK!!!!
You would never think that Cameron Diaz used to stuff her face with junk food, but turns out she did! The 41-year-old actress opened up about transforming her fitness method and revealed her former obsession with Taco Bell. She said during an interview, "I saw a Taco Bell yesterday—it made my stomach scream. If I had nothing else to do, I would be, like, 'Three bean-and-cheese burritos and give me some nachos with extra cheese sauce… But what I've learned is that just 'cause you can chew it and swallow it … doesn't mean it's food." Now, Cameron Diaz is all about the fitness, saying, "I love the science of the body, and I love to give information and see people utilize it in their own lives. I want women to know that it's never too late to start paying attention to their bodies. Until I started training at 27 for 'Charlie's Angels,' I didn't. I literally quit smoking a month before.” START EARLY!
It’s good to see that old school ways don’t die! Sarah Jessica Parker is KNOWN for her poise and grace, so it should come as no surprise that she’s teaching her kids the same things. Teaching her kids to be polite is a top priority for Sarah Jessica Parker. She said, “My daughters write thank you notes, and they’re just learning to read and be able to spell. It takes a significant amount of time just to do one, and they need a lot of adult supervision. Eventually they will be expected to share their appreciation with someone.” HOW COOL IS THAT! What a good mom!
I don’t think I would have ever spotted this collaboration! When Phil Collins mentioned that he was going to come out of retirement last year, you wouldn’t think he’d be working with this artist… Phil Collins has revealed that one of his first new projects since leaving the music business because of back issues will be with someone very, very famous. He’s just started to work with Adele! Phil Collins said, “She contacted me to write together. I actually wasn’t too aware of her. You know, I live in a cave, I think. But she has achieved an incredible amount, and I really love her voice. I love some of that stuff that she’s done.” TIME TO GET OUT OF THAT CAVE!
Justin Bieber was arrested in Miami Beach yesterday for illegally drag racing and a DUI. But it didn’t end there! He was also busted for resisting arrest without violence and driving on an expired license. The Biebs admitted to smoking marijuana and taking prescription medications. When pulled over, Justin Bieber blew a .04. That would not automatically make him a drunk driver… IF he were 21 or older. But Justin Bieber is only 19, and Florida has a zero tolerance for underage drinkers who drive. A Blood Alcohol Content higher than .02 is ground for an automatic license suspension. According to the police report, cops approached Justin Bieber's car and they instantly realized he reeked of alcohol and had bloodshot eyes. He was defiant from the get-go, yelling at the cops. Justin Bieber had his bond set at $2,500 and was released. On his way out, he made an unforgettable exit. As if smiling in his mugshot wasn’t enough, Justin Bieber got on top of a black SUV and waved to fans as he smiled with his sunglasses on and everything! Going to jail didn’t stop the Biebs either. Just a few hours after he posted $2,500 bail, Justin Bieber headed straight to South Beach for a few drinks! Right next to him, his father, who reportedly was also there during the drag racing! Other family members and Justin Bieber’s management team are worried SICK about him and his recent behavior and say there is "massive concern" that Justin is hanging out with the wrong crowd and are urging him to seek help and go to rehab.
Ed Sheeran is too cute! Along with being a phenomenal singer-songwriter, Ed Sheeran is a pet rescuer and cat lover! Ed Sheeran revealed on Twitter that he chose to adopt a kitten after finding out that the cat would be put to sleep if he didn't find a home! Ed Sheeran tweeted, "So basically this one month old kitten was gonna get put down so I adopted him and called him Graham. Just bought Graham a bed and snacks!” AWE!!! He continued by saying, Graham needs a lot of TLC, have a feeling his previous owners weren't that nice, he's shy too." By the way, Graham already has a Twitter account and is very active on social media. He first tweet was, “MEOW!” HAHA! Of course, Graham’s Twitter account wouldn’t be complete without a selfie picture of him and his new dad saying goodnight! I’d love to be taken care of by Ed Sheeran!
I think we all saw this one coming! Dean McDermott is trying to earn back his family's trust. Tori Spelling’s husband has officially entered rehab. He issued the following statement, "I am truly sorry for the mistakes I have made and for the pain I've caused my family. I take full responsibility for my actions and have voluntarily checked myself into a treatment center to address some health and personal issues. I am grateful to be getting the help I need so I can become the husband and father my family deserves." US Magazine recently reported that Dean McDermott cheated on wife with a 28-year-old woman named Emily Goodhand. Tori Spelling has yet to publicly address the affair. The married couple of seven years are parents to Liam, 6, Stella, 5, Hattie, 2, and Finn, 16 months. Hopefully he can and WILL get better for his family.

Justin Bieber was arrested early this morning for drag racing and a DUI in Miami Beach! He was in a rented Lamborghini. According to police, the Biebs failed a sobriety test. Justin Bieber is now in custody and is at the police department where he is being tested, probably to get an accurate measure of his blood alcohol level. His next stop will be jail where he will be booked and processed and bail will be set. My sources are telling me that Justin Bieber had a passenger in the car, she was a model. I’m also being told that the person drag racing with Justin Bieber was ALSO arrested. As of right now, no other details of the arrest are known. Justin Bieber has been spotted in different places around town the past few days, including a Miami Beach skate shop and strip club.
Ke$ha is going to have to find a new art project in rehab, specifically one that doesn't involve asking her fans to send in their teeth! Yes, you heard me right. That’s because her treatment center has a strict no-tooth policy! While Ke$ha is still being treated for an eating disorder, she recently had a friend post a message on Twitter asking her fans to send in their teeth so she could "make art" in rehab! Yes, it sounds odd, but turns out Ke$ha has been doing tooth art for a while now! She uses real teeth in bras, bandanas and other pieces of jewelry. But a rep for the rehab center is saying, nope, no human remains here! The rep explained, "There is always a risk that it could be of bio-hazardous material so we are not able to bring in anything that's real." However, the center WILL accept fake teeth, so, there’s always that!
The time has come to an end for the band The Wanted! After their upcoming tour, the boy band just announced they will be breaking up as soon as it's over! The group released a statement, saying, "This tour will be their last for a while as Tom, Max, Jay, Siva and Nathan have collectively decided to take time to pursue personal endeavours following the tour's conclusion." I’m being told that Max and Nathan have already started solo projects. The Wanted formed in 2009 and released their debut album in 2010, which included hits like "Glad You Came." Their upcoming tour is set to end in May. So long!
When you become a new, rising celebrity, who can you turn to for advice? Well that depends on who you asks, and for Lorde, she has a definite answer. She just revealed that she texts back and forth with Taylor Swift! Lorde asks Taylor Swift advice about everything, from her career to what to buy as a Christmas gift for her manager. Yes, Lorde has actually texted photos to Taylor Swift to get her opinion. Lorde said she is really good at that stuff, especially because Taylor Swift has decorated her own houses for ages!
The two became friends after Taylor Swift sent Lorde a bunch of roses when "Royals" hit number 1. Lorde said she “was floored." Hey, that’s one friend to keep in your circle!
She’s thinking everything pink! That’s because it’s going to be a baby girl for former Jersey Shore alumn JWoww and her fiance Roger Mathews! JWoww is expected to give birth in July and her rep has confirmed the news! JWoww said, “Roger and I can’t wait for the arrival of our little princess and Lorenzo’s future girlfriend,” Lorenzo being her best friend Snooki’s son. Even Snooki got in on the big news, tweeting, “YAY finally I can go shopping with JWoww for BABY GIRL THINGS! Lorenzo‘s so excited!” JWoww announced her pregnancy on Christmas Day by sharing her holiday card! But the road to motherhood hasn’t been easy for her. JWoww was actually put on Zofran because she lost nine pounds in three weeks! Better eat up for that baby girl!
I would actually love to see this! Bruce Jenner is getting his dancing shoes! You’re probably guessing right! The 64-year-old former Olympian is in talks to join Season 18 of Dancing With the Stars and is dying to do it! I’m being told that the show is close to locking him in! Bruce Jenner has been the ballroom before as an audience member. He previously cheered on his stepdaughter Kim Kardashian. Then Kim Kardashian’s younger brother, Rob Kardashian, followed in her footsteps. He joined Season 13 of the dancing competition in 2011. I would think that Bruce Jenner would definitely have support from the crowd if he were to get picked this upcoming season, especially on top of his recent split from his estranged wife Kris Jenner.
Have a good booty? How about a J. Lo booty? Well, Jennifer Lopez needs you! She’s started filming her latest fllm Lila & Eve, and casting directors are searching for a stand-in for the lead actress! There’s only one catch, don’t expect to make the big bucks! Producers are looking for female extras to be a substitute for Jennifer Lopez on the Atlanta movie set for about $10 an hour. The requirements, you have to be Hispanic, Caucasian or a Multi-Ethnic female, 5’4-5’6, with previous acting or stand-in experience.” The stand-in rate is $80 for an eight-hour day, with overtime after eight hours. That ain’t a whole lot of booty!
Ke$ha wants her fans to know she's thinking about them just as much as they're thinking about her. The singer, who checked into rehab earlier this month to get treatment for an eating disorder, is currently cut off from social media. BUT, she found a way to send a message to her Twitter followers thanks to a close friend. Ke$ha’s friend got on her Twitter account and tweeted, "This is Kesha's friend. She asked me to tweet an update for her because she doesn't have access to Twitter right now. She says 'THANK YOU. SOOO MUCH. I'm overwhelmed to tears by all of the love, letters, and support!! I'll be back soon and better than ever. Ohhh and she can't believe Timber is still number one… PARTY ON!!!!!" Of course Timber is referring to her latest collaboration with Pitbull. Ke$ha entered rehab on January 3rd, stating, "I'll be unavailable for the next 30 days, seeking treatment for my eating disorder...to learn to love myself again, exactly as I am." Hopefully, she’ll be out soon!
Looks like there is something wrong with Ryan Reynolds afterall! Looks like he’s not a cat person! Nooooooo! He’s clearly a dog person, especially since he shows nothing but love for his dog Baxter, but when it comes to cats, he steers clear! Ryan Reynolds is starring in a new movie called The Voices where he's just an average guy who can talk to his pet dog Bosco and his cat Mr. Whiskers, which somehow turns Ryan Reynold's character into a serial killer. According to the film's director, working on this set was extremely hard for Ryan Reynolds BECAUSE of his huge fear of cats. He said, “Ninety-eight percent of when you see Ryan and the cat, they aren’t in the same room." One scene, Ryan Reynolds had to actually caress and cradle the cat, and let’s just say he and the cat were not happy. Ryan Reynolds apparently was a little too rough with the cat, who freaked out and scratched his arm up! Haha, I guess everyone can’t be a cat person!
The truth will set you free… or maybe some money will! A peace has broken out between Brooke Mueller and Charlie Sheen. Now, she is allowing her ex-husband to visit their twin sons, and now we know the reason why! Brooke Mueller, who has been in and out of rehab, is desperate to have $55,000 in child support re-instated after it was slashed in half when she lost custody of the boys in the wake of being placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold after a drug overdose in May.Apparently it’s been very hard for Brooke Mueller to live on $20,000-a-month because she has to pay for her sober coaches and ongoing expenses related to her recovery. Can we just worry about the kids, for once?
Even though Zac Efron has been quiet about his secret stint in rehab in the spring of 2013, he did open up during his appearance on the Today Show where he was promoting his new film That Awkward Moment. After several questions about his movie, he was asked about his time in rehab. Zac Efron responded by saying, "I'm in the best place that I've ever been in. I've never been this happy before. I'm extraordinarily grateful for these guys and to be here promoting this movie. Things are good. Thank you for asking." In December, he was spotted sitting courtside at an L.A. Lakers game wearing a blue AA chip that represents six months of sobriety. To go from being a party boy to being completely sober.. I give him props for that!
The Wolf of Wall Street may be all about expensive things in life, but the money made by Jonah Hill to play stockbroker Donnie Azoff in the film was anything BUT pricey. This of course is according to Hollywood standards. During an interview, Jonah Hill admitted that he was willing to work for the SAG minimum in order to collaborate with director Martin Scorsesse. He did the 7 month 'Wolf of Wall Street' shoot for $60,000 because he wanted the role so badly! Jonah Hill touldn't sign his contract fast enough because he was so afraid they would change their minds and hire someone else. Well guess what… now Jonah Hill finds himself nominated for an Academy Award for his performance opposite Leonardo DiCaprio! Looks like you can't put a price tag on that!
Justin Bieber is laughing at everyone who is worried about his drug abuse because he thinks what he's doing is simply just a 19-year-old having fun! My sources are telling me that Justin Bieber is LAUGHING at the stories that gossip sites like TMZ have posted about his drug use... specifically, his addiction to sizzurp! Justin Bieber's feeling is that he's young with lots of time on his hands and is on a break. There’s no concerts or other obligations on his immediate schedule. Justin Bieber's people have been urging him to get help and go to rehab but Justin Bieber has shut them down. Over the weekend, Justin Bieber even posted a video on Instagram on an ice rink with the hashtag "worried bout nothing."
I don’t think there’s one thing that Katy Perry DIDN’T talk about in her latest cover story for GQ! For the February 2014 issue, Katy Perry opened up even more about everything from body image to life with her boyfriend John Mayer. But that wasn’t before talking about her very famous assets. She said, "I lay on my back one night and looked down at my feet, and I prayed to God. I said, 'God, will you please let me have boobs so big that I can't see my feet when I'm lying down?' At age 11, God answered my prayers. I had no clue they would fall into my armpits eventually." Katy Perry swears she’s never had plastic surgery, and that her messages of self-empowerment are truly coming from an “au natural product." As for dating boyfriend John Mayer after her divorce from Russell Brand, Katy Perry said, "I think that I needed to grow up. I'm just having a wonderful experience with a wonderful guy. There's no rush." But the boobs, we can rush those!
I’m so excited! It’s officially going to be a little miss independent for Kelly Clarkson! That’s right, Kelly Clarkson and her husband Brandon Blackstock are having a baby girl! Kelly Clarkson, who is currently 4 months along, took to Twitter to reveal the baby’s gender! She tweeted, "We just found out we're having a girl officially! I knew it! Only a girl could cause this much drama with all this vomiting ha!" Kelly Clarkson even called it back in November saying, "I'm totally gonna have a girl. I'm manifesting it! And when I have a girl, you're gonna be like, 'That chick knew it!'" Guess what, Kelly Clarkson is psychic! Congratulations!
Robin Thicke constantly says that he has the most functional, dysfunctional marriage in Hollywood. Well, now there’s proof to that statement. That’s because the R&B singer, who is married to actress Paula Patton, was photographed in a nightclub getting very touchy-feely with a clubgoer over the weekend. When you look at the pictures, Robin Thicke is seen getting very up close and personal with the woman, nearly to the point of kissing. He was caught in a similar compromising situation last fall right after an MTV VMAs party. Fool me once, shame on you... fool me twice, shame on me?!
Are Kanye West and Kim Kardashian getting married at the Palace of Versailles? Well, the engaged couple is in Paris scouting wedding locations! They spent an hour visiting the famed palace on Sunday after they were dropped off at the gates by their driver! Kim Kardashian and Kanye West met with officials and once their meeting was over, they tried to keep a low profile as they headed out! Their driver even had the car waiting with the door open, so that they could hop in immediately and drive off. The rich keep getting richer! I wonder how much that place would cost to rent out!
THIS IS AMAZING NEWS! There were rumors going around that Beyonce was possibly going to perform at the Grammys, and now it’s officially true! Beyonce has been confirmed to perform during the first hour of the January 26th show! AND THAT ISN’T ALL! Beyonce’s husband, Jay Z, is ALSO performing! My sources are telling me that the couple will be performing together! This might just be the show stopper of the night! Also, one more pop music royal expected at the Grammys is Madonna, who will do guest vocals during one segment. Her name hasn’t officially been posted among the night’s performers though!
This story continues to get more sad! Jon Gosselin has been open about his feuding with his ex-wife Kate Gosselin over letting his children appear on television. But now I’m learning that he is being a little bit of a hypocrite because Jon Gosselin actually waived his rights for a say in their TV appearances in exchange for not having to pay his child support! So even though Jon Gosselin is acting like he only wants the best for his children by keeping them off TV, he really pretty much sold them. Even worse, his daughters Mady and Cara who are 13, are fully aware of the agreement and are deeply hurt by their father’s decision. They don’t talk to him and they haven’t seen him in nine months. In cause you missed it, Kate Gosselin, Mady and Cara were on the Today Show last Thursday morning in what can only be described as an awkward appearance. The girls, even though they grew up with cameras around them, went mute during the live TV segment.
I don’t think Justin Bieber’s fans have seen anything like this! X-rated photos of the Biebs have been obtained along with texts between him and his ex, Selena Gomez. In the texting fight, Selena Gomez calls him “a drug addict” who needs to “go to rehab!” The messages have all been verified as real, and started off innocently with Justin Bieber telling Selena Gomez that he loves her and misses her. When Selena Gomez snapped back by saying she doesn’t believe him and calling him names, Justin Bieber got nasty and said, don’t tell me you don’t miss me, and sent her inappropriate pictures. Selena Gomez told the Biebs to stop, and let’s just say he didn’t. She said he needs to go to rehab because he’s sick. As for Justin Bieber’s stance on rehab, he made that clear in the texts, saying to heck with that! Let’s just say, the texts got worse. Looks like Justin Bieber’s squeaky clean image is truly no more! This is pretty cool! Looks like Jay Leno will close out his 22-year run as the host of NBC’s The Tonight Show with a nod to the future and to the past. His heir Jimmy Fallon will kick off Jay Leno’s final week with a guest appearance on February 3rd. Then, Jay Leno's final night, on February 6th, will feature Billy Crystal, who was Jay Leno's first guest in May 1992 when he took over for Johnny Carson. Country superstar Garth Brooks will also appear. Jay Leno's last week will also include Betty White, Matthew McConaughey, Sandra Bullock and Blake Shelton. Then, Jimmy Fallon's Tonight show will debut February 17th during the second week of the network's Olympics coverage, with actor Will Smith and U2 as guests. The good news for Jay Leno is that NBC Entertainment president Robert Greenblatt is hoping to continue the network's relationship with Leno after he leaves late night, but he said that Jay Leno didn't want to discuss his future until he finished his final week. He may not be gone for good afterall!
Shia LaBeouf just headbutted a guy in a bar after what sounds like a MASSIVE argument over his girlfriend's mother! Oh, and the whole thing was caught on video! You can actually see Shia LaBeouf headbutt a bald man and he screams at the man, "What are you saying about my girl's mom? Are you f**king kidding me bro?" You then hear a girl that is most likely the woman that Shia LaBeouf is with, scream his name in a plea for him to stop! The fight went down at a pub in South London in a pretty rough part of town. Shia LaBeouf should know the pub well because he was in a fight at the same place back in November, 2012. The bar fighting for him didn’t start there. He even got his butt kicked on the street outside a Vancouver bar in 2011. Maybe it’s fun for him!
Looks like Nick Cannon can’t take a joke! He launched an all-out Twitter war against talk show host Chelsea Handler after she made a joke about him and his wife on her show. Earlier this week, Chelsea Handler slammed the couple’s romantic photo that they got published and joked about their love life. She even said, “I don’t want to start another feud with Nick Cannon because I had a feud with him last year that he started and I didn’t really know we were in and that really knocked the bottom out of me.” She then continued to make fun of his wife, saying about Mariah Carey, “How do you claim to be a spiritual person if you’ve been photographed on a treadmill in high heels?” Well, Nick Cannon was quick to fire back on Twitter. He tweeted, “Sounds like @chelseahandler wants 2 WildOut! It’s easy to throw rocks … from behind a wall. Come out of hiding! I didn’t hear what @chelseahandler said about me because I don’t watch her show. (NO ONE DOES) What channel is it on, public access?” OUCH! Adding fuel to the fire, he tweeted, “I would be glad to have @chelseahandler on any of my shows. I have several … On many different networks. She’s been hating for years.” Hmm, Team Nick or Team Chelsea? I say she’s just doing her job!
Kanye West can run but he can’t hide! Especially from the paparazzi! Days after Kanye West reportedly attacked a teen for making crude remarks to himself and his fiancé Kim Kardashian, Kanye was spotted walking on the streets of Paris yesterday afternoon. He was seen trying to hide his face from all the camera lights, but later on in the day, Kanye West was out shopping and having a good time. So you can’t help but ask the question, why is Kanye West on the run and hiding in a different city? Maybe waiting for everything to blow over! Little odd!
Everyone's still talking about the 2014 Oscars nominations from yesterday morning and now the math is adding up! Turns out Meryl Streep has now received more acting nominations (18!) than any other actress. The late Katharine Hepburn (who is the second most nominated actress with 12 nods) currently holds the record for being the actress with the most wins (four). Jennifer Lawrence, who was just nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in American Hustle, is the youngest three-time nominee ever at the age of 23. She also happens be the youngest actor nominated for an Oscar in 2014. Leonardo DiCaprio also has a place in Oscars history. If he wins a 2014 Best Leading Actor Oscar for Wolf of Wall Street, it will be his first Academy Award win ever. MAYBE THIS YEAR WILL BE HIS YEAR!
Kate Gosselin’s TODAY show interview with her daughters Mady and Cara might have been the most uncomfortable thing to watch yesterday. In case you missed it, her two daughters pretty much refused to speak during a live interview, all about how they wanted to talk about how growing up in the spotlight hasn’t affected them. We might have felt horrible watching it, but the moment felt even worse their father, Jon Gosselin. He called TMZ to talk about it, saying, "I felt upset. I was laying there and was like, 'Say something girls. Come on! Just say something. Anything.' And they didn't say anything and I was like, 'Ugh, this is horrible. Then I felt really bad. I mean, I didn't care too much for Kate or whatever, but I felt really bad for Mady and Cara because I love them and they're just put in this situation. It was like deer in the headlights." After leaving the studio, Jon's ex-wife Kate Gosselin tweeted that the twins’ silence was because of stage fright, But Jon Gosselin didn’t see it that way. He said, "It just kind of proves my point of Kate bringing the kids out instead of her just sort of doing it herself. It all blew up in everyone's face and I feel horrible for my children because now they're going to have to deal with the public. Why did his daughters shut down? "By body language they were probably like, 'What's the moral thing to do and what does my mom want me to do?' Jon Gosselin is just trying to stay positive for his girls.
Uh oh! Looks like Justin Bieber is worried about what cops are going to find on his cell phone after his house was raided because he threw eggs on his neighbor’s property. I’m being told that his issues involve nakedness and drugs. When law enforcement searched his house, they took Justin Bieber’s cell phone because the cops are interested in texts that could incriminate him. Justin Bieber could have texted someone after the incident and bragged about the egging. But now I’m being told that what the cops could find is Justin Bieber’s drug discussions and references along with naked photos and he’s afraid that the news and even pictures will leak out. Also, I’m being told that Justin Bieber’s friends are URGING him to check into rehab for all of his odd and crazy behavior! He might be the next celeb to fall!
Ke$ha as you probably know by now is currently being treated for an eating disorder at a rehab facility. Now, her mother is speaking out AGAIN, claiming that her daughter almost DIED as a result of starving herself. She said, “The doctors told me her blood pressure and sodium were so low they'd never seen that, except with someone who'd had a heart attack or stroke. They said it was a miracle she hadn't dropped dead onstage.” Ke$ha checked into the Timberline Knolls treatment center outside of Chicago on January 3rd for anorexia and bulimia. Ke$ha’s mother check into the same rehab center as her daughter earlier this week for PTSD. Ke$ha’s mother also said, “I've watched my beautiful, self-confident, brilliant daughter be berated and ridiculed for her looks and weight - to the point that she almost died.” She even remembers producers screaming at Ke$ha during a conference call, telling her daughter, “You need to lose weight! I don't care what you do, take drugs, not eat, stick your finger down your throat.” These things were denied being said. Either way, here’s to hoping that Ke$ha gets those people OUT of her life and gets well!

Sometimes things just weren’t meant to be, and that seems to be the case with Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie! The announcement of their divorce came as a shock this week. So, what happened? Turns out the romance between them was just gone. After three years of marriage, the couple went to great lengths to save their marriage. Hilary Duff felt Mike Comrie didn't put enough effort into the relationship. The couple tried counseling for 18 months. Ultimately they realized the spark was no longer there and are better as friends. Hopefully, they will be close friends for their son!
Are the Black Eyed Peas going to be gone forever?! Maybe we have to ask Fergie, the lead singer of the band. She’s married to actor Josh Duhamel, and there are rumors swirling around that he’s pushing her to create a much cleaner and clearer break from the group. That’s because apparently Josh Duhamel felt that Fergie could re-invent herself as a solo artist without band members like will.i.am influencing her decisions. But hold on! Josh Duhamel is speaking up against the rumors, and he’s DENYING THEM! Josh Duhamel posted on his Facebook page, "Don't believe this bulls--t. Not true," along with a hyperlink to the report. Looks like Fergie just wanted to have a break, have a kid and focus on family! Back off the husband!
Can drinking almost ruin your life? Well if you were to ask Snooki that question, the answer would be, YES! Today, Snooki has traded in her random hookups for appearances and late night partying for date nights with her fiancé. But in her new book, Baby Bumps, Snooki reveals that her drinking almost ruined the new life and happy family that she created. Her fiancé, Jionni Lavalle actually threw her out of the house and brought up the possibility of rehab after she made out with other women in a night of blackout drinking! She said, “About a month after Lorenzo was born, I went on a girls’ night out. In the limo to the club, we popped open a bottle of Champagne and had more vodka… I was drunk before we hit the highway. After champagne we switched to sake bombs …. After being a saint for ten months, I had no idea what my tolerance level was anymore. I blacked out, and only found out what happened the next day.” Snooki knew it had been filmed and that her fiancé would find out the truth, so she did. It was then that he made her pack her bags, leave and mentioned rehab. Her costar JWow calmed her down and said, you don’t need rehab, you just need a break.” After a long heart to heart with her fiancé, they worked it out, but it was that moment that Snooki vowed to stop drinking. Sometimes, all it takes is one bad night with alcohol and a really bad decision!
Country singer Trace Adkins fought himself on a cruise ship on Monday… or at least, that’s what he might have thought that was what was happening. That’s because Trace Adkins was really wasted and he just checked into rehab. What happened was Trace Adkins was headlining a country cruise headed to Jamaica. He was in the bar when something happened between him and a Trace Adkins IMPERSONATOR who was doing Karaoke. Trace Adkins, who had been sober for 12 years, fell off the wagon and got into a physical fight with the impersonator! My sources are telling me that once the boat docked in Jamaica, he checked into rehab! Will the real Trace Adkins please stand up!
Is he finally learning his lesson and cooperating? The cops may have had to calm down Justin Bieber when they raided his house yesterday, but seems like he’s feeling better now. My sources are telling me that Justin Bieber is cooperating with the authorities and that he's also moving forward and concentrating on work and his new music! Turns out Justin Bieber was sound asleep when authorities showed up to search his home after a neighbor reported that Justin Bieber had egged his house. His best friend Lil Za was also asleep in the house before getting arrested for drug possession. Lil Za was released on $70,000 bail after he was arrested a second time in jail for smashing and damaging a phone. Justin Bieber, who has not been connected to the drugs found in his home, is only being accused of the egging. He could be charged with a felony. Justin Bieber's reps have yet to comment on everything. Staying quiet for once may be a good thing?
Justin Bieber's best friend Lil Za was arrested for COCAINE POSSESSION at the singer's home during an early morning police raid stemming from Justin Bieber attacking his neighbor’s house with eggs earlier this week! Eleven L.A. County Sheriff's patrol cars showed up at Justin Bieber's house yesterday morning to execute a search warrant in connection to the crime. A rep for the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. confirmed the arrest for FELONY drug possession and said that the cocaine was "in plain view" during the raid. Officials say Justin Bieber was "not connected" to the cocaine. Lil Za’s bail has been set at $20,000 and he is still in custody. Deputies were looking for any evidence that links Justin Bieber to the egg assault. A FELONY search warrant was issued, which means that Justin Bieber is being heavily watched and could end up in PRISON for throwing eggs! Deputies took down Justin Bieber's security system and took it during the search. So if in the course of the search cops find something illegal, like drugs, it's fair game. Double hit! No pun intended!
Kanye West has declared legal war on the people who released a virtual currency called Coinye West! The problem… he doesn’t know who to sue! Kanye West filed legal documents trying to get a judge to force the people behind it to immediately SHUT DOWN the marketing and sale of the virtual currency, which can be used to buy goods and services through many different online merchants. Kanye West says that "With each day that passes, my reputation is irreparably harmed by the continued use of the Coinye West marks." So in an effort to shut down the rise of the Coinye currency, Kanye West has requested an injunction against several companies he believes are responsible for its release. As of now, the people behind the companies are hiding their identities through various online privacy services! I think punching an 18 year old in the face yesterday is doing his reputation harm…
It may have only been a year since judging on American Idol, but Jennifer Lopez is coming back a changed woman! When J. Lo did the show, it was a transformative year for her. She just went through a divorce, went on tour and then left American Idol. Her security blankets were gone. Her support system came from her mother and her boyfriend Casper Smart. Now, she is ready to come back to American Idol as a woman that has grown. She said, “My goal was not to come out the other side and just survive it but grow as a human being as well as an artist, and I felt I did. I learned a lot." She has also learned that she’d rather be in a relationship than be alone. So, are wedding bells in the future with boyfriend Casper Smart? Her answer, "I don't know. We'll see.You know, I've always believed in that institution. I believe in it, but it is difficult. I've had my challenges, but at the same time I believe in love, and I think that is the main thing." It would be the fourth time down the aisle for her!
After rumors started going around that Charlie Sheen wants his ex-wife Denise Richards to move out of his neighborhood, Charlie Sheen has finally confirmed the news with a mean message on Twitter to the mother of his two daughters. Charlie Sheen wrote a horrible tweet yesterday, calling Denise Richards a pig. He tweeted, “hey denise I own the farm. yet you are only pig in the pen to sling mud bile… every inch your evil cloven hoofs trample. #OINK” An hour later, Charlie Sheen tweeted another message to Denise Richards that pretty much said she’ll do anything to be in the media spotlight! This isn’t the first time Charlie Sheen has gone off on Denise Richards, who has only seemed to try and help him and his children. His current girlfriend, Brett Rossi has become jealous and she’s apparently the one who convinced Charlie Sheen to evict Denise Richards from a house he owns! How mean! She’s the mother of his kids!
Whenever a celebrity is cast as a superhero, there’s always a lot of opinions. The ones for when Ben Affleck was cast as Batman were beyond negative… so I wonder what you’re going to think of this one. Jonny Depp is currently rumored to be in talks to play Marvel's magical superhero Doctor Strange! Marvel has been planning the film adaptation for years and they think Johnny Depp is their man. Plus, if Johnny Depp ever did want to play a superhero, Doctor Strange would be the best fit! So, do you think Johnny Depp would make a good Doctor Strange?! I DO!
Looks like the Grammys this year are going to be awesome! Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, who with the Beatles are this year's recipients of the Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award, will perform at the ceremony on January 26th!

Plus, LL Cool J will host again. Bring on January 26th!
Remember last year when Jennifer Lawrence was so sick with pneumonia that she barely got through award season? Well, her American Hustle director David O. Russell remembers that and is placing blame! On who? How about The Hunger Games! He says the franchise is working Jennifer Lawrence way too hard! He said: "I personally think they should give her a bit of breathing room over there because they’re printing money. I’ll tell you what it is about that girl — talk about 12 years of slavery, that’s what the franchise is. And I’m going to get in so much trouble for saying that." Yeah, yeah you did! Critics are already voicing their outrage that he compared Jennifer Lawrence starring in movies to the horrors of slavery! Well, now David O. Russell has already issued a follow-up statement, saying, "Clearly I used a stupid analogy in a poor attempt at humor. I realized it the minute I said it, and I am truly sorry." Yea, comparing hard work for great pay to slavery, that’s going a bit far!
Kanye West attacked an 18-year-old inside the waiting room of a chiropractor's office yesterday after the guy allegedly called Kanye West a racial slur. Kim Kardashian was at a Beverly Hills medical building when she was swarmed by photographers. My sources are telling me that the guy allegedly tried to help Kim Kardashian get into the building and started screaming horrible racial slurs at the photogs while doing it. Kim Kardashian told him that wasn’t appropriate, which set the guy off, and he started screaming racial slurs at her! He also threatened to kill her. Kim Kardashian called Kanye West and when the guy realized Kanye was on the phone, he started calling HIM racial slurs! Well, Kanye West showed up, he and Kim Kardashian rushed into the waiting room of the chiropractor, saw the 18-year-old sitting there…. and witnesses say that Kanye West punched the guy as Kim Kardashian screamed, "We have it all on tape." Cops were called. The 18-year-old said he wanted to press charges. Remember, Kanye West is currently facing assault charges involving a photog attack in an airport.
Octomom has been charged with 3 felony counts of welfare fraud and now faces more than 5 years in prison if convicted on all counts! The L.A. County District Attorney's Office filed the charges and is claiming that Octomom, also legally known as Nadya Suleman… failed to report nearly $30,000 in earnings between January 1st-June 30th, 2013. To be specific, Octomom is hiding the money that she got from personal appearances and sexual videos. The D.A. is asking the judge to set bail at $25,000.
Looks like there’s going to be a lot of wedding bells in the Simpson family! That’s because on top of Jessica Simpson preparing to marry her fiancé, now her younger sister Ashlee Simpson is engaged! Ashlee Simpson, who is dating Evan Ross, had the news broken on Twitter! Evan Ross tweeted, "The love of my life said YES!!!!!!," and shared a picture of the two of them. Ashlee Simpson tweeted, "My baby love and I are ENGAGED!!! Hallelujah Hawaii!!!" The couple just went public with their relationship in July! Looks like Diana Ross will be Ashlee Simpson’s future mother-in-law! Ashlee Simpson already has a 5-year-old son from her previous marriage to Fallout Boy band member Pete Wentz.
Don’t call it a comeback! Looks like Adele will be releasing new music sooner rather than later! That’s because she's working with a top hitmaker who has written hits for singers such as Celine Dion, Cher, LeAnn Rimes, Christina Aguilera, Toni Braxton and Aerosmith! Famed songwriter Diane Warren also revealed that she "recently worked with Adele." Diane Warren also confirmed that the collaboration is for Adele's next album, even though there's no guarantee that anything they wrote will make the final cut! BRING IT ON! YOU KNOW IT’S GOING TO BE GREAT!
I don’t know if this is good news or bad news for Justin Timberlake… His comeback album The 20/20 Experience was the best-selling record of 2013, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The bad news… it was the worst-selling chart-topping album since sales figures started to be reported. Only 2.43 million copies sold of the album were sold… not so much good news music industry wise. On the bright side, The 20/20 Experience was the only album to sell more than 2 million copies in 2013. I guess Justin Timberlake can thank streaming services like Spotify for the decreasing sales. But you still have millions of dollars, keep your head held high JT!
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are definitely celebrating today! That’s because they are the queens of ratings when it comes to the Golden Globes! The 2014 Golden Globes hit a 10-year high for the awards show, bringing in 20.9 million viewers. The 2004 ceremony brought in 26.8 million viewers. Sunday’s telecast of the Golden Globes was the highest rated in the 18-49 demographic in 7 years. Last year, the Golden Globes had 19.7 million viewers overall. So the 2014 ceremony was up 6 percent in total viewers! Things are looking good for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's return to host the show again next year!
Lorde just loves doing her own thing! First she says no to opening for Katy Perry, then she says she’s turned down millions of dollars because she’s said no to ideas she thought were cheesy. NOW, Lorde is saying that she won’t join the likes of Lady Gaga and Katy Perry by giving her fans a "pun-centric" nickname. Lady Gaga calls her followers her “little monsters,” and Katy Perry calls her fans her “KatyCats.” But Lorde will never stoop to that. She said, "I find it grating to lump everyone into a really awkward, pun-centric name. People joke about it on Twitter, 'You should call us The Disciples. Never! I have discouraged it. I've tweeted multiple times, 'No fan name, I do no condone this.’" I personally like calling her fan Lorders, what’s the harm in that?!
Looks like some of the Kardashian clan doesn’t have time for the drama! Kyle Jenner took to Twitter to slam critics after a report came out that her mom Kris Jenner had a detailed screening process for her youngest girls' boyfriends. The report claimed that Kris Jenner made sure her daughters' dates had celebrity status before they were allowed to go out. Which doesn’t seem to far fetched. Well, Kylie Jenner tweeted: "The fact that some people actually believe I would waste my time dating someone as a publicity stunt." Kylie Jenner was rumored to be dating Will Smith’s son Jaden Smith. But Kylie Jenner is saying she is SINGLE while her sister Kendall Jenner seems to be dating One Direction’s Harry Styles. Is it all just a part of their mom’s plan? Guess we’ll never know unless we find proof!
It's all over. After three years of marriage, Hilary Duff has announced that she has split from her husband Mike Comrie. In the days leading up to their friendly separation, there was no indication that a split was even on the horizon. The couple, who have been married since August 2010, seemed to be happy together. Just five days ago, they were photographed smiling and playing at a Los Angeles park with their 21-month old son Luca. Hilary Duff’s rep stated, "They remain best friends and will continue to be in each other's lives. They are dedicated to loving and parenting their amazing son, and ask for privacy at this time." Even after her rep confirmed the news, Hilary Duff went on Twitter and thanked all her fans for their support: She tweeted, "Mike and I are sitting here, we are so appreciative for all of your kindness & well wishes. Not an easy day but we're getting through it together."
Here’s another reason to love Ellen DeGeneres. She shared a cool surprise Christmas gift that she gave to her wife of five years, Portia de Rossi on The Ellen DeGeneres Show! She even had it all on video! Ellen bought Portia a Land Rover Defender, put a bow on it and placed it in a parking lot where she knew they would be going to later that day. It was a car that she knew Portia de Rossi really wanted. The car is a rare find because the model is no longer manufactured. As Ellen DeGeneres expected, Portia de Rossi pointed out the parked car, joked and asked, “did you get me that for Christmas?" Little did she know that Ellen DeGeneres had taken out her camera phone behind her to film the magical moment and when she turned around, Ellen was holding out the keys to the car! Let’s just say Portia De Rossi’s reaction was priceless! What a good girlfriend!
David Cassidy didn’t have a good weekend! He was arrested for a DUI Friday night in Los Angeles. This is the third bust he’s gone through in the last three years, and they all took place in three different states! David Cassidy was driving in Los Angeles when he was pulled over for making an illegal right turn. The officer then noted “the odor of an alcoholic beverage was emitting from the vehicle.” David Cassidy blew a .19, more than twice the California legal limit. David Cassidy was released on a $15,000 bond.
KEEP THE BAD INFLUENCES AWAY! That’s exactly what Britney Spears’ father is thinking! Britney Spears just started her two-year residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, but one celebrity won’t get to see the show! That celeb is Lindsay Lohan! My sources are telling me that it’s Britney Spears’ dad, Jamie Spears, that is calling the shots since he’s in charge of his daughter's well-being. Lindsay Lohan has always been a big fan of Britney Spears and would love to attend a show, but there’s no way she would ever get on the VIP list because Britney Spears’ dad has a strict “No Lindsay Lohan” rule. Why? Because Jamie Spears has always felt that Lindsay Lohan was a bad influence on his daughter. He wants to keep Britney Spears on a good path, and that means no more hanging out with Lindsay Lohan ever again! Hey, at least he’s trying to keep his daughter happy and healthy!
This is just disheartening. Ke$ha's struggle with an eating disorder is taking a toll on her entire family. Now, her mother is entering the same Chicago-area rehab center that she’s in! Ke$ha’s mother stated, "I'm checking myself into Timberline Knolls today for post-traumatic stress disorder, at Ke$ha's urging. This whole Dr. Luke thing has almost torn our family apart and taken over my life, and Ke$ha wants me to heal along with her." Dr Luke is Ke$ha’s old producer who apparently was the start of Ke$ha’s eating disorder after calling her a refrigerator on the set of one of her music videos. So sad! Hopefully they get better together!
Looks like they are officially a couple! Talking about Charlize Theron and Sean Penn! The two were together at Sean Penn’s Help Haiti Home gala and they packed on the PDA! The couple let their hands and lips do all the talking during the night! My sources are saying that during the event they were all over each other even though the pair arrived separately, Sean Penn and Charlize Theron were even spotted holding hands as they walked away at the end of the evening together. The have been longtime friends and the relationship just naturally grew! Note to self though, PDA at a charity event, not too appropriate!

Drama? You won’t find it with Kelly Osbourne! She just announced her split from her fiancé Matthew Mosshart and spoke out yesterday saying that it was a mutual decision. Kelly Osbourne said, "We love each other very much. It just wasn't the right time for us and I think if we weren't as mature and adult as we are, then we could have gone down a road that wasn't really nice. We're still really, really good friends. It's just that we're not living in the same house. There's no dramatic story. I wish there was so I had something to tell people, but no ... It just happens in life." Kelly Osbourne’s mother Sharon is sharing the same love, saying, "Matthew is a lovely guy. They had two great years together of fun and love, and for me, that's why engagements are so important. Engagements are a test run, aren't they? And so it didn't work for whatever reason, but they are still good friends and will continue to be. It's just not right for them right now." Kelly Osbourne seems to be in a good place too, spending time spray painting with Justin Bieber after the breakup!
If you haven’t heard, Ke$ha is in rehab seeking treatment for an eating disorder! But there were rumors going around that she was also there for alcohol abuse. Well, Ke$ha’s mother is speaking out against recent rumors that her daughter is currently getting help for alcoholism, saying, "That's a total lie. The place she's at is an eating disorder center. When they say 'people close to her' I will tell you I travel with her everywhere, her little brother, her assistant, makeup artist, talk to anyone. She might be crazy and she might get sh*t-faced drunk, but everyone does. She might have a few drinks here and there. But she doesn't have a drinking problem." Ke$ha’s mom is actually is a recovering alcohol and drug addict, and Ke$ha has been attending AA meetings with her since she was just over a year old. Ke$ha’s mom is swearing that her daughter is only dealing with bulimia issues. As for the treatment, she says that Ke$ha is doing well, but may need more than 30 days of treatment.
Some people still seem to be skeptical of John Mayer and Katy Perry’s relationship, but they seem to be going strong! The couple just recently vacationed together in Hawaii, where they stayed in a private house and enjoyed a romantic vacation together for over a week. Onlookers said that they seemed really happy and in love. Katy Perry and John Mayer also recently exchanged extravagant Christmas gifts. Katy Perry gave John Mayer a Samurai sword and John Mayer gave her a pair of diamond angel wings! They have been dating on and off for the past year and are at the center of engagement rumors. But neither of them have commented on it. I think the proposal will be inevitable soon! Love them together!
Anne Hathaway had quite the scare yesterday! She was taking in some sun with her husband Adam Shulman on the beach when she decided to take a dip. She didn’t think about the odds of catching a riptide! Luckily, a local surfer heard her screams and raced out to rescue her! But on her way in, Anne Hathaway had even more bad luck and cut her foot on a reef! Once on shore, her husband took over and immediately and I kid you not, started sucking possible toxins out of her toe! That’s a true man right there! LOVE! When he will suck your toe!
Beyonce and Jay Z’s daughter Blue Ivy better look at all these pictures when she gets older! That’s because she had a 2nd birthday that was fit for a princess! Beyonce and Jay Z took their daughter to Joey's Italian Café after renting out Jungle Island, the bird sanctuary inside the Miami Zoo! The couple, along with a group of friends, spent the first half of the day seeing the wildlife habitat and botanical garden before grabbing some pizza. Blue Ivy was wearing a gold necklace with her name on it that I’m sure is worth A LOT! I wish I could rent out a part of the zoo for my birthday! Jealous of a two year old!
Amanda Bynes has come out with a victory in her criminal case where she stands accused of throwing a bong out of her NYC apartment window. Cops had claimed they came to Amanda Byne's unit after getting complaints from neighbors that she was smoking marijuana. Cops say they smelled weed in her unit and before they could do anything she threw a bong out the window. Amanda Bynes said she threw a flower vase and not a bong. She was charged with marijuana possession, evidence tampering and reckless endangerment. I’m being told the case will be resolved today in court and that it will mostly likely be put on a standstill or dropped. Amanda Bynes will NOT enter a plea. If she stays clean and continues her therapy for the next 6 months, the charges will be formally DISMISSED and the case will be sealed. Amanda Bynes's lawyer had no comment. Hopefully she keeps it together!
Justin Bieber launched an all out egg assault on his neighbor's home last night! The L.A. County Sheriff was called to the scene while the eggs were still flying! The neighbor said he heard something banging against his house around 7:30 at night and when he stepped on to a 2nd floor balcony ... he says he saw Justin Bieber down below hurling eggs at his front door! According to him, Justin Bieber even started aiming for him once he stepped onto the balcony and yelled, "What the hell are you doing?" They also got into a verbal argument. The neighbor immediately called the police and believes his house was pelted with no less than 20 eggs. An incident report from the neighbor. Calls to Justin Bieber's reps were not immediately returned. Hmm… how old are you?! THROWING EGGS?!
Jon Gosselin is calling out his ex-wife Kate Gosselin, saying he believes she’s exploiting their eight children for financial gain and to regain her relevancy! Jon Gosselin said, “She uses them as her props. It’s a problem for her that she can’t afford her old lifestyle anymore. I think she wants a show on TV again — I consider that exploitation.” Kate Gosselin has been struggling financially and emotionally. My sources are telling me that the children have been “upset” and “embarrassed” by Kate Gosselin’s mad dash to see her name in lights. Most of them don’t want to film. But Jon Gosselin said that despite the toll its taking on the kids, Kate Gosselin will continue to try and get a new show because “she has to stay relevant. “It’s her pride. She wants to prove to everyone that she’s still got it.” KIDS SHOULD COME FIRST!
Is Kim Kardashian losing her hair?! That seems to be the case! She was spotted wearing a top-bun recently, and it revealed something surprising about her hairline! Along the back of her neck, there were obvious bald patches with extensions in place to cover the hair loss up. Apparently it’s normal for some mothers to lose hair after giving birth due to hormonal fluctuations, but according to some hair experts, it might be Kim Kardashian’s rapid weight loss that’s to blame! Sounds like shedding that extra baby weight ASAP wasn’t so great for her after all! OH NO!
Tori Spelling is definitely staying strong for her kids, but her marriage issues with husband Dean McDermott are taking a toll on her! I’m being told that not only is she and her husband leading separate lives following a recent report which claims that Dean McDermott cheated on Tori Spelling, but I’m also being told that she is still trying to process the tabloid scandal which is currently plaguing her personal life. Tori Spelling is doing her best to maintain a normal routine for her four children and is even wearing her wedding ring but things are very strained. She’s putting on a happy face! How sad!
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez went into the wild over the weekend! They roughed it out in the wilderness and went camping near the beach in Santa Cruz, California. I use the term camping lightly because it was in an luxury RV at an upscale campground, KOA Kampgrounds. There were chaperones, Justin Bieber’s dad and bodyguards. The price for the RV… $65 a night. Oh, and the RV is owned by Chris Brown and it has a big master bedroom, a kitchen, living room and, of course, lots of video games. So I doubt they ever saw any dirt!
I don’t know how this Disney diss is going to go over! While presenting the Best Actress Award to Emma Thompson for Saving Mr. Banks at the National Board of Review Awards Gala on Tuesday, Meryl Streep slammed the late man behind the mouse, Walt Disney. She gave a 10-minute long tribute to Emma Thompson that proved to be quite a spectacle. She said, "Some of his associates reported that Walt Disney didn’t really like women. Ward Kimball, who was one of his chief animators, one of the original 'Nine Old Men,' creator the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter and Jiminy Cricket, said of Disney: ‘He didn’t trust women or cats.’ And there is a piece of received wisdom that says that the most creative people are often odd, or irritating, eccentric, damaged, difficult…. Disney, who brought joy, arguably, to billions of people, was perhaps, or had some…racist pro-clivities… and he was certainly, on the evidence of his company’s policies, a gender bigot….” WOW! Looks like Meryl Streep's chances of doing something Disney related are through!
Chris Brown and his bodyguard rejected a plea deal that would have found both men guilty of simple assault stemming from an alleged altercation with another male in Washington, D.C. last October. One of Chris Browns’ lawyers, Danny Onorato, told reporters outside the D.C. Superior Court that attorneys decided not to accept the plea because Chris Brown is not guilty. Another hearing has been scheduled for February. Following the incident when it happened, Chris Brown was ordered to spend another three months in a residential treatment facility, submit to drug testing and take medication as prescribed by a doctor. He is required to complete 24 hours of community service a week during the course of his time in rehab. With this incident, Chris Brown faces a maximum penalty of 180 days in jail and a $1,100 fine if convicted!
Honey Boo Boo and her family are currently recovering following a major car crash in Georgia! As Honey Boo Boo's father Sugar Bear was making a left turn, another car slammed into them! Mama June, Pumpkin and Chubbs were all in the car at the time of the accident! Mama June released an official statement about the accident, stating, “As many of you have heard we were in a car accident last night. It was really scary for us, since it was the first time any of us had ever been in a wreck. We are definitely really sore today, but our top priority is to celebrate Pumpkin’s birthday. She turned 14 today and no matter how sore we feel we are going to go out and celebrate. As always we want to thank everyone for their support and well wishes.” Honey Boo Boo’s family claims that the other driver had the right of way, but didn't have his headlights on at the time of the crash, making it impossible for them to see the car. A few members of the family were taken to the hospital, but information wasn’t released if anyone was injured.
With her body looking better than ever, Jessica Simpson is ready to get married! She was on Good Morning America yesterday and shared her upcoming wedding plans with fiance Eric Johnson, saying, "We don't have an actual date but we do know that we want it to be this year. We need to get married." Jessica Simpson and retired NFL player Eric Johnson, became engaged in November 2010. Their wedding, however, was put on hold more than once to welcome the births of their two children. Jessica Simpson says she already feels like they are an old married couple though, saying, "If he wanted to run, he could have run when I was hormonal and pregnant." TRUTH!
A good hairstylist is hard to come by, especially in Hollywood! It’s also common for stars to SHARE the same stylist, and these two just happen to be Jennifer Aniston and Miley Cyrus! Both ladies can attribute their signature hairdos to Chris McMillan, famous for “The Rachel” cut Miley Cyrus’ bleach blonde pixie cut. But the rumor is that Jennifer Aniston wants her hairstylist to focus more on HER hair than Miley Cyrus’! My sources are telling me that “Miley Cyrus has radically remade her look with the help of hand picked hairdresser Chris, but the successful creative collaboration between the pair is headed for splitsville because of Jen. Jen has gotten very impatient with Chris’ constant attention to Miley — as well as the fact that Miley’s hair is getting so many headlines.” OUCH! THAT’S GOTTA HURT!
Adele is kicking butt, and it’s with old material! Nearly three years after its release, Adele's album 21 continues to break sales records, becoming the first-ever digital album to sell over three million copies! The record continued to sell well in 2013, becoming the 21st best-selling album of the year, according to Billboard after topping the year-end chart in 2011 and 2012. Back in 2012, 21 reached another significant sales mark when it became the 21st album to sell more than 10 million copies, reaching diamond status in just 92 weeks. The shocking part, amidst 21's stunning sales, Adele has remained pretty much quiet on the music front: From vocal chord surgery to having a baby, Adele has taken a musical break. But now she is reportedly at work on a new album that could potentially see release this year! SOME GOOD NEWS!
Clearly Sofía Vergara is proud of her sexy figure since she shows it off all the time, and the 41-year-old admits she's not afraid to flaunt it! Sofia Vergara recently posted a sexy picture of herself strutting her stuff in a thong bikini in Mexico, and it's not the first time she's flashed her infamous curves on social media. Some people are arguing that she’s OVERSHARING, but Sofia Vergara explained why she won't stop posting the sexy pictures any time soon. She said, "My son took that picture. And I'm like, 'Damn, I still look good! I'm going to post this one. At this age, you don't take for granted a good picture." Also, why is she sometimes photographed without her engagement ring? Is there trouble in paradise? Sofia Vergara said, "I read the most absurd things, like one day I'm engaged, one day because I go to the gym without the ring then I'm not engaged and it's some horrible tragedy. Then the other day I'm getting married, then I'm giving birth." FAIR ENOUGH! I say bring on more selfies!
Looks like Kesha might be dealing with more issues than we previously realized! When Ke$ha entered rehab last week we thought it was to overcome an eating disorder, but the 26-year-old pop star may have also checked in to deal with a drinking problem! I’m being told that Ke$ha might be one of the biggest party animals in the business and that recently her close friends have become increasingly worried about her drinking. Now, part of Ke$ha’s bid to get healthy is to get completely healthy — and that will involve looking at her abuse of alcohol! GOOD LUCK! We wish her well!
Here’s another reason to watch the 56th Annual Grammy Awards on January 26th! Lorde will take the stage, making her Grammy debut, while Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Pink will return to the stage to perform as well.
Another performance scheduled also includes Robin Thicke, who will be performing with rock band Chicago. Sounds like this is going to be a night to remember! The Grammys is known for unexpected collaborations! Looks like this year won’t be different! EXCITED!
Jennifer Lawrence may only be 23 years old, but that doesn’t mean she’s not accomplished! From Hunger Games to American Hustle, Jennifer Lawrence is one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 stars! She’s also in good company! Stars like Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Lorde and One Direction all made the list! The best part, most of them are between the ages of 19 and 22! Here’s something to make you feel sick… One Direction’s world tour grossed over $1 million per city with the guys earning a total of $42 million in 2013. Talk about a lot of money, and talk about an honor!
Madonna loves the controversy! Madonna posted a picture of her 13 year old son Rocco and his seemingly underage friends posing with bottles of gin and vodka to her Instagram! She captioned the picture with, "The party has just begun! Bring it! 2014!" Let’s just say that some fans weren't feeling the Material Girl's idea of "bring it." One reader even wrote, "Having underage kids pose with booze is awful.” Madonna seemed to be unfazed by the reactions. The singer's message to her critics was to calm down. She wrote, "No one was drinking we were just having fun! Calm down and get a sense of humor! Don't start the year off with judgement!" HMMM… Do you believe her?
Now that Ke$ha has entered rehab, blame is being placed on the person that put her there! Ke$ha’s mother is blaming music producer Dr. Luke for her daughter’s battle with an eating disorder, claiming that he called her a ”refrigerator” on the set of a music video shoot! Ke$ha’s mother took to Twitter over the weekend attacking Dr. Luke in response to fans that blamed him for the singer’s eating disorder. Ke$ha signed with Dr. Luke’s label in 2005 and then signed a new deal in 2009 with RCA Records under his imprint, but by 2012 the two were said to be having creative differences. One fan tweeted, “Luke is the one to blame for the development of Kesha’s eating disorder. He called Kesha a refrigerator on the set of Die Young. Will she ever admit that?” Ke$ha’s mom chimed in and replied with a definitive, “YES!” SO SAD!
False alarm! Looks like Charlie Sheen didn’t get married after all to his ex-porn star girlfriend Brett Rossi over the weekend! He tweeted that he did, which started the rumor mill! Turns out that Charlie Sheen was just joking. It all was a humorous attempt to freak out his ex-wife. Charlie Sheen sent the tweet Sunday from Iceland, including the photo, saying, "This is the house where S and I GOT MARRIED!" But Charlie is saying, "I wanted to give Denise Richards a stroke!!!" Things have been kind of bad between the two recently. Charlie Sheen accused Denise Richards of refusing to allow their daughters to open Christmas gifts at his house over the holidays, calling her a heartless ugly hag. She denied the accusation. Hey, that’s one way to irritate an ex!
Looks like this relationship might have been over before it began! Twilight actor Kellan Lutz was being linked to Miley Cyrus! So he was finally asked whether he and Miley Cyrus were an item, and we got a response! Kellan Lutz said, "I've been friends with Miley for like six years. She's a great girl. I love hanging out with [her]. She's super talented. She's a really cool, secure woman. We run in the same circle. Are we dating? No… I'm happily single. I'm not looking right now… I'm enjoying life and traveling quite a bit… There's no real time to find the one." So, deny, deny, deny! Hey, you never know what the future holds!
Congratulations to Eva Longoria! She’s been named Maxim's Woman of the Year! Eva Longoria said, "It’s especially awesome after how long it’s been since my first cover. I’ve had a beautiful relationship with Maxim over all these years." Eva Longoria topped Maxim's Hot 100 two consecutive years in a row back in 2005 and 2006. She also said, "One thing people are usually surprised about when they get to know me is how domestic I am. So when you see the sexy Maxim cover and then you put it against me in an apron with flour in my hair, it takes a moment to reconcile that image!” Too cute of a joke! And she muy caliente so congratulations to her!
Will Smith has finally spoken up about the death of James Avery. Will Smith, who played James Avery's nephew on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, took to Facebook to honor the late actor who died on December 31st. Will Smith posted an undated picture of the sitcom's cast, noting, "This photo was the last time we were together.” The picture shows Will Smith and James Avery standing next to each other and hugging. Will Smith also paid tribute to his former costar's influence, writing, “Some of my greatest lessons in acting, living and being a respectable human being came through James Avery. Every young man needs an Uncle Phil.” AWE!
Pop star Ke$ha has entered a rehab facility! But it’s not for a drug or alcohol addiction. Ke$ha has entered the rehab facility to help treat an eating disorder! The 26-year-old “Timber” singer checked in to the rehab center on Friday, and it’s actually the same treatment center where Demi Lovato went in 2010 to deal with HER eating disorder and emotional issues. Ke$ha isn’t hiding the fact that she’s in rehab. She’s admitting it, even telling the media, “I’m a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I’ve found it hard to practice. I’ll be unavailable for the next 30 days, seeking treatment for my eating disorder … to learn to love myself again, exactly as I am.”
Jenny McCarthy is in some hot water and is trying to set the record straight! The View co-host has slammed reports that her son Evan, 11, doesn't have autism. On Friday, a rumor surfaced that Jenny McCarthy revealed that her only child is not autistic, even though she's publicly talked about his condition over the years. So Jenny McCarthy tweeted, "Stories circulating online, claiming that I said my son Evan may not have autism after all, are blatantly inaccurate and completely ridiculous. Evan was diagnosed with autism by the Autism Evaluation Clinic at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital and was confirmed by the State of California. The implication that I have changed my position, that my child was not initially diagnosed with autism is both irresponsible and inaccurate. These stories cite a 'new' Time Magazine interview with me, which was actually published in 2010… Please know that I am taking every legal measure necessary to set this straight." That would be a horrible thing to lie about!
For two people that say they are “just friends,” they sure do seem to hang out a LOT! Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles were spotted together AGAIN! They were together on New Year's Day and stayed at a house with a group of friends. Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles hit the slopes together. Kendall Jenner snowboarded and Harry Styles skied. Onlookers said they looked very cute together. Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles first sparked rumors that they were a couple when they were spotted eating a meal together out in West Hollywood. Sounds like they’re a couple to me!

Sandra Bullock sure knows how to bring on the laughs and poke fun at herself! At the 25th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Gala, Sandra Bullock had to crack some jokes! Reading internet comments about herself while accepting the award for the Desert Palm Achievement Award, the 49-year-old Oscar winner made fun of people who pointed out her age, quoting, "Sandra Bullock is over 40," adding, "Sandra Bullock is way past 40."She then referenced a rumored feud between her and Julia Roberts over their mutual friend George Clooney, joking, "Julia, you and I are in a feud over George Clooney.

The horrible details about Paul Walkers death have now been released through the coroner’s office and it isn’t any good news. Coroners confirmed the red Porsche Carrera was traveling “at an unsafe speed, approximately 100+ mph” and for “unknown reasons, the driver lost control of his vehicle. Paul Walker was charred and in a pugilistic stance, meaning that he had his hands up, anticipating impact. According to the autopsy report, Paul Walker had numerous thermal and traumatic injuries including clotting and multiple fractures to the ribs, pelvis and spine. There were no drugs or alcohol in his or his friends’ system at the time of the crash. Paul Walker was in mid-production on Fast & Furious 7 when he tragically passed away, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal will move forward with the movie and his character Brian O’Connor will not be killed off but instead “retired” in a tasteful manner.
Can’t believe this is true! Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez just can’t seem to call it quits. They’re back together again, with Justin Bieber confirming the news with a romantic selfie on his Twitter account. Justin Bieber tweeted, “Love the way you look at me,” along with the picture that shows Selena Gomez with her arms draped around him and a sweet smile on her face. The first sighting of them back together was on Thursday when they were seen riding Segways near Justin Bieber’s home in Calabasas. This all came just days after she abruptly canceled the rest of her Stars Dance tour, stating that she needed “me time.” I guess that “me time” includes Justin Bieber!
Could this be the first feud of the year? Many sites were reporting that MIley Cyrus kicked off the New Year with a sting to Queen Beyonce. The 21-year-old pop rocker is on the cover of Love Magazine's March 2014 issue, but it was her supposed quotes about Beyonce that drew attention. Miley Cyrus reportedly said that the biggest blow to Beyonce's career was choosing to have her daughter Blue Ivy. The quote read, "As Beyonce grows in motherhood and all the crap it does to your body, it will create a vacuum for fresh young faces to rise up and no one else can properly fill that void right now. I got the total package, you know, the curves, the rhythm, and the voice. I'm just the best." But Miley Cyrus quickly got on Twitter about the rumors, saying, "That quote people MADE UP about Beyonce just made me lol! Imagine if I said I got 'the looks and the curves I'm just better!' Bahahahhaha. How are people allowed to make up s--t & then put quotes around it saying I said that s--t! WTF!!?! don't worry. getting 2 the bottom of this s--t. making the liar retract the statement. U can cause ALOT of drama but NOT between me & B!" The Love Magazine has released a statement, saying that MIley Cyrus never said anything to them about Beyonce and that they quotes were indeed made up and that they are trying to get to the bottom of where it came from! OUCH! Don’t believe everything you read!
Jessica Simpson has one goal for the new year, and that’s looking her absolute best in her wedding dress! Jessica Simpson opened up about her New Year's resolutions in a recent advertisement for Weight Watchers, saying, "I think if you do set resolutions for yourself, it shouldn't be something grand. I think it should just be about getting started on something and see if you can stick with it." She also said that her upcoming wedding to her fiancé Eric Johnson is serving as a perfect deadline for getting into her best shape yet, stating, "The new year will definitely bring on the wedding bells, which is exciting…I think it's about time. Knowing that I have the wedding coming up is an incentive to stay on Weight Watchers, count my points and stay in the gym. I mean, when you see my dress, you'll know." INTRIGUED! Bet you she’ll look gorgeous! At the end of the day, Jessica Simpson would also love to just try and feel good in a pair of jeans and a T-shirt and just feel comfortable in her skin. She looks great to me!
Talk about being the best boss ever! Jennifer Hudson just said thank you to her long-time assistant, Walter Williams, in a HUGE way… by BUYING HIM A HOUSE for Christmas! She posted the video on her Instagram account, saying, “My assistant Walter’s reaction when he found out I was buying him a house.” In the video, you see Walter Williams holding a folder of papers, looking at it, realizing what it is, and then he just starts screaming. He then hugs Jennifer Hudson on the couch, and says, “What?!” Jennifer Hudson has known Walter Williams since the sixth grade, and he is her closest friend. That’s some generous gift!
When comedian Jay Mohr called Alyssa Milano too heavy for her size after having a baby earlier this week, Alyssa Milano stood up for and defender herself. Plus I think he was seeing things, because she looks amazing. Either way, Jay Mohr has come forward with a response, tweeting: “So ‘fat-shaming’, as she put it, a girl as great-looking as Alyssa was such an absurd comment that it couldn't be taken as anything, but facetiousness? She’s stunning. I mistakenly thought the absurdity of what I was saying would have been taken as a joke. #FAIL.” Hey, sometimes every joke in comedy doesn’t come across as a joke! Everyone is saying that since Jay Mohr has been happily married for seven years he should know that joking about a woman's weight is bad! Hopefully Alyssa Milano accepts his apology!
Love yourself some Duck Dynasty? Well now you can buy even more merchandise from your favorite family! The Duck Dynasty family says it has just the thing for you: a .22-caliber pistol! That’s just one of a dozen guns now being offered by the family. Their company, Duck Commander, teamed up with gun-maker Mossberg to create the weapons… nine shotguns, two assault rifles, and the pistol. Phil Robertson makes it clear that the main purpose of the guns is one thing only, saying: "Do you know what makes me happy, ladies and gentlemen? To blow a mallard drake's head smooth off." The family also has a camouflage design!
Could they already be back together?! After canceling the rest of her “Stars Dance” tour to get some “me time” in, pop star Selena Gomez was spotted hanging out with her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber! Selena Gomez was photographed yesterday in Justin Bieber’s exclusive Oaks neighborhood in Calabasas riding Segway scooters together. Justin Bieber led the way with a friend while Selena Gomez kept her distance and followed behind him. CAUGHT YOU! Didn’t she learn her lesson?
Lorde has gotten widespread fame thanks to her hit single, Royals, and now she’s speaking up about how the music and entertainment industry doesn’t get every teenager out there and she chooses how to brand herself carefully! Lorde said, ‘Teenagers are more complex than people think.” Till this day, Lorde thinks that when it comes to her producer, “that half of the album, he has no idea to this day what I’m talking about.” Lorde’s lyrics touch on suburban boredom, peer pressure, drinking, getting snubbed and how “maybe the Internet raised us.” It has no love songs, which was a deliberate choice. Lorde maintains tight control over the ways she is packaged and presented. She admits, “I’ve turned down easily tens of millions of dollars doing what I do and saying no to things that I think are corny… I’m trying to make something people my age will care about, trying to keep my peers feeling like I’m doing something for them or representing them in some way.” To turn down millions?! WOULD YOU?
The new year is starting out with a big bang for Kaley Cuoco! She said "I do" to her now husband Ryan Sweeting in a fire-and-ice-themed wedding on New Year's Eve. Kaley Cuoco posted a picture of herself in a pink Vera Wang gown, kissing her husband who she’s only been dating for six months. They got married at Hummingbird Nest Ranch in California in front of about 150 guests. After the ceremony, Kaley Cuoco changed into a short red dress. Congratulations to them!
Is Robert Downey Jr. calling all the shots? It sure seems that way! The Iron Man star is bringing attention to himself in Hollywood with his attempt to get his close friend, Mel Gibson, known for his anti-Semitic rant and other scandalous behavior… cast in an Avengers movie! Robert Downey Jr. has a five year deal with Marvel Studios that will see him make two more Avengers movies in the next four years AND he’ll consult on future parts of the Iron Man franchise. It doesn’t stop at Mel Gibson. Apparently Robert Downey Jr. is also trying to get close friend Jodie Foster into the mix as well. My sources are telling me that it’s been a longtime dream of Robert Downey Jr.’s to help Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster reach similar big box office heights like the ones he’s achieved in recent years. Jodi Foster they can see, but not Mel Gibson. Put it to you this way, Marvel is run by one of the richest and most prominent Israeli businessmen in Hollywood. That might be a bit awkward…Gotta love Robert Downey Jr. thought for looking out for his friends!
Nobody brought the laughs like this guy did! James Avery, best known for playing Will Smith’s no-nonsense rich uncle on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air has passed away.

James Avery died at a Los Angeles hospital due to complications from open-heart surgery. He was 65 years old and is survived by his wife of 26 years, step-son, and his mother.
Katie Holmes is calling a truce! Looks like she really wants to return to her roots and is hoping to convince her friends from the past to join her. That’s because Katie Holmes is interested in a Dawson’s Creek reunion special and apparently even asked her former co-star, Michelle Williams, to participate. Katie Holmes and Michelle Williams didn’t get along well while the teen drama was on the air between 1998 and 2003 and Katie Holmes is hoping that they can forget the past and make amends, even though Michelle Williams was the main aggressor on the show! The real push for a reunion is coming from Joshua Jackson, who is hopeful that if Katie Holmes and Michelle Williams agree to the show, fellow and former co-star James Van Der Beek “will have no choice but to follow.” I’d watch that reunion!
Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson is deciding not to quack back. In one of his first chances to comment on the dust-up surrounding his outspoken father and costar Phil Robertson for making anti-LGBT comments, the younger Robertson had only kind words for the A&E network and New Year's wishes. He said, "We're just glad to be back to work, and A&E and us are fine." Willie Robertson had several chances to address the controversy surrounding the suspension of his father over anti-gay comments, but he stayed mum, simply saying, "We're looking forward to getting back to making some funny shows. It's a New Year so we're ready to break in a New Year and start it all over again. We're ready to move on, you know. I think we all learned a lot and we're just ready to move on, and the family's happy, and we're ready to go. I've got to make sure my guys are back there building duck calls." Getting back to business!
