Everyone struggles, even celebrities! While most starlets break out the big bucks for luxurious digs, Hayden Panettiere was sleeping on a friend's futon in an attic ALL spring! She had been calling her friend's usual storage space in Tennessee home out of fear that her TV show, Nashville, wouldn't be renewed for a second season! Hayden Panettiere relocated down south last year to shoot the series where she rented a condo in the same building as Taylor Swift but she didn't renew the lease because of the show's unknown future. How smart! Looks like she can sign on for another year lease now!
Looks like Britney Spears' next album is going to be amazing! Why? Will.i.am, the producer in charge of Britney Spears' eighth album, is going ALL OUT to make sure her music will be her most personal yet! He has asked that the two hang out and get to know each other personally for MONTHS before the recording even starts! Will.i.am said he hasn't even done this with the Black Eyed Peas. Sounds crazy! But in theory, maybe all producers should take the time to get to know their artists this well!! Will.i.am said this about his method, "I wanted to just go to lunch for two months, which is totally different from how you typically do it. I said, 'Let's talk about what you're excited about. Let's talk about things you've done in you career, what you're happy about. Let's talk about spending time with your kids, let's talk about your breakup. Let's talk about how now you're single, how independent you might feel.' We started talking about all that stuff. So I said, 'do you mind if I write this down? I don't mean to impose but I want to interview you. I need this to create a filter.'" Sounds like a great producer to me!

Gwyneth Paltrow is hosting a meet and greet in New York City today and has invited 60 fans to join her for a private cooking class and VIP treatment! The best part, tickets for the special event, advertised on Groupon.com on Tuesday, have already sold out and it only took 24 hours! The package deal includes airfare, two nights at the Hilton Metropolitan hotel, spa sessions and dinner at a French restaurant. Would you pay that much for her?
Someone has to bring in the money, right? Well, what happens when both people in the relationship are super rich? We have been hearing SO many rumors and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's relationship. Now, the latest that is floating around is that Kanye West has been recording a new album in Paris for the majority of Kim Kardashian's pregnancy and he's not even going to stick around when the baby is born because he's going on a world tour to support his new music! WOW! Kim Kardashian is due to give birth sometime in July, and Kanye is expected to drop his new album on June 18th. Hmm. So the baby would only be a few months old when Kanye West goes out on the road. Apparently Kim Kardashian, not too happy about this. Can you blame her? PRIORITIES!
Big news for David Beckham! He is ready to hang up his cleats for good! The soccer star who has won league titles in four countries has officially announced that he would retire after the current season, ending his two-decades-long career. David Beckham released a statement saying that he was "thankful to Paris St. Germain, his current club, for giving [him] the opportunity to continue competing. But I feel now is the right time to finish my career, playing at the highest level. If you had told me as a young boy I would have played for and won trophies with my boyhood club Manchester United, proudly captained and played for my country over one hundred times, and lined up for some of the biggest clubs in the world, I would have told you it was a fantasy. I'm fortunate to have realized those dreams. I want to thank all my teammates [and] the great managers that I had the pleasure of learning from. I also want to thank the fans who have all supported me and given me the strength to succeed.''
Don't get mad, get even! That seems to be exactly what Demi Moore is doing to Ashton Kutcher. Their divorce is dragging on and Demi Moore is going after her cheating ex-husband! Now, she has demanded that Ashton Kutcher pay spousal support, even though she is reportedly worth $150 million and Ashton is worth $10 million less. Demi Moore also apparently asked him to help pay for renovations on her $25 million apartment in New York, an apartment that Demi Moore hasn't been seen in for a long time. It seems like she's trying to punish him. In case you aren't keeping score, the couple married in 2005 and split in 2011.
Here's another reason to love Demi Lovato. If you didn't know, she had a lot of issues and had to go to rehab. She's now been sober for a while and goes to extreme lengths to keep it that way. She has to have her tonsils removed over the summer before beginning her duties on the judges panel of The X Factor and she does NOT plan on taking any chances with her past addiction struggles and will be undergoing the surgery WITHOUT the help of painkillers! Plus, get this! It won't even be the first time that she's done this!
Demi Lovato had her wisdom teeth removed AND endured a foot injury without any drugs! So proud of her!
If you missed American Idol last night let's get you up to speed. Who took home the title of season 12's American Idol winner? Candice Glover!

Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna, two celebs that don't want to be near each other. The former best friends had a major falling out a few years ago, and Madonna's cold actions at the Met Gala proved that they still don't speak. Madonna didn't talk to Gwyneth Paltrow but spoke A LOT with Beyonce, with whom Gwyneth Paltrow is good friends with. Everyone at the Met Gala noticed it.
More kids are on the horizon for Britney Spears! She revealed to Mario Lopez that she wouldn't mind having another girl on the home team in addition to her two boys. Mario Lopez told Britney Spears that he was jealous of Britney Spears for having two boys since they have a 2-year-old daughter, Gia, and another baby on the way. Britney Spears, in turn, went "Awww, I want a girl!" Just to verify, Mario Lopez got on Britney and asked, "Oh, you do want a girl! So later on, maybe a little girl?" To which Spears replied simply, "Yes!" She might just have to wait on that though, since Britney Spears is in negotiations to headline her own Las Vegas show.
Here it goes! Another seat at the American Idol judges' table will soon be up for grabs. Amid rumors that producers are firing the remaining three panelists on American Idol, Us Weekly is reporting that Nicki Minaj will not return to the competition in the fall. Why? Not because she is getting fired, but because Nicki Minaj will be focusing on her next album, touring, and endorsements. She had a great time but was only going to do one season anyway. Mariah Carey has yet to comment on her future with American Idol but is rumored to be leaving as well to go on a U.S. Tour! Keith Urban hasn't confirmed his return but has said in interviews that he wants back in.
And another person on the leaving bandwagon, Shakira! That's right. Shakira is officially leaving The Voice and Christina Aguilera will be coming back to take her place on season 5. Carson Daly officially confirmed the news and Shakira will be taking some time off to focus on her family and career. But is she gone for good? This is what Shakira has to say: "I'm not going to be able to do next season because I have to get back to my motherhood and also get back to the studio, the recording studio, to finish my album, the one that I started working on before I had to deliver a baby and before I took this gig with The Voice. So yeah, I have to take a little break. But you never know, I might come back!" Usher is rumored to be leaving as well to focus on a movie. No word on him yet though.
And speaking of The Voice, it's no secret that everyone is saying that coach Blake Shelton and his wife Miranda Lambert are having marital issues. Well, what's something that isn't helping? How about the fact that they are SWAMPED with professional commitments? Both Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert have been hard at work since their wedding two years ago, as they reportedly spent just four months together in their first year of marriage. Blake Shelton says, "I don't know how many total days we've spent together since we've gotten married but … it's not normal, it's not enough." This summer from May until September, they will be apart AT LEAST 71 days, as Blake Shelton has a whopping 153 commitments. How is that a marriage? Not good!
This is just scary! P. Diddy may not want to drive around West Hollywood! He was dropped off at Soho House yesterday by his bodyguard, but minutes after leaving something HORRIBLE happened! L.A. Sheriffs pulled over the bodyguard and Puff Daddy's $500 thousand dollar Maybach, and approached the vehicle with their guns drawn! Cops then ordered the bodyguard and a passenger out of P. Diddy's vehicle, made them lay on the ground, and searched the car for guns and contraband! Someone had apparently dialed 911 and told police that the rapper's vehicle was filled with firearms, but cops found nothing! Was this a misunderstanding or another horrible swatting attempt? So scary!
Here's a whole new meaning to wedding stress. Holly Madison's fiancé, Pasquale Rotella, is facing more than 13 years in prison for bribery, embezzlement, conspiracy and conflict of interest, according to Radar Online. The LA Country District Attorney alleges that Rotella used more than $2.5 million in funds from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to pay off city officials when he would use the coliseum to host raves. He was indicted with five other men and posted a $1.8 million bail. Rotella is due back in court on July 29th, and could serve nearly 14 years in jail, if convicted.

So what does pop star Selena Gomez have? How about Incense, and ALWAYS pickles! Oh, and let's not forget the ramen noodles! But Selena Gomez says that as much as she loves food, she has been hitting the gym for the first time in her life to workout and get into shape for her tour.
Don't believe everything you read in the tabloids. People were reporting that Will Smith's son, Jaden, was looking to get emancipated from his parents for his 15th birthday so he could have his own place. Well, turns out that's not true! Jaden Smith is totally fine with his parents and we would like to think so since Will and Jada Smith just recently spoke about how they don't even PUNISH their kids. Plus, why would anyone want to move out from under the Fresh Prince's roof, like, ever?
Sad news for some SNL fans! Say goodbye to Stefon! That's right! Bill Hader has announced he's leaving "Saturday Night Live" .and this weekend's episode will be his last.

Bill Hader has been with the show for the past 8 seasons. This is a big loss for the show, which already lost Andy Samberg and Kristen Wiig last season. Seth Meyers will also be leaving next year when he takes over "Late Night.".
Uh oh! Kim Kardashian doesn't exactly have the best track record when it comes to men, and a friend of the reality TV star worries that Kim and Kanye West won't stay together long enough to welcome their baby into the world as a couple. The source is saying, "We just do not understand why she is traveling to Paris to see him. She is the pregnant one. Kanye will fly in to see the editors of Vogue, but he won't fly in to see the lady carrying his child. The only way they have a future is if Kim continues to do whatever he says." Not good! Kim Kardashian even admits to spending most of their time apart!
Looks like Rihanna loves to party! Rihanna and some friends decided to hit up the club scene late last night at the Pink Elephant in New York.

She's also been tweeting about how she needs a king, so maybe she meant Sean Kingston ha!

Lindsay Lohan is saying she believes that Betty Ford is "old school" and is not sensitive to the problems of young people. Also, my sources say that Lindsay Lohan is afraid to gain weight now that she's off the drug.

Apparently some of Kate and William's closest friends were at a barbecue hosted by a family friend of the royals and they were all discussing the fact that Kate's baby is due on July 13th. What's cool about this is that if this is the right due date, it falls in the middle of the Coronation Festival, a four-day celebration marking 60 years since Queen Elizabeth II was crowned. LET THE BABY WATCH BEGIN!

She had the surgery in February and completed the last of the follow-up procedures in April. She said, "I wanted to write this to tell other women that the decision to have a mastectomy was not easy. But it is one I am very happy that I made. My chances of developing breast cancer have dropped from 87 percent to under 5 percent. I can tell my children that they don't need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer. I am fortunate to have a partner, Brad Pitt, who is so loving and supportive. So to anyone who has a wife or girlfriend going through this, know that you are a very important part of the transition." Brad Pitt was with her for every minute of the surgeries! AWE!
Beyonce is in the news a LOT today! First, the biggie, there's rumors that Beyonce is pregnant with her second child! It's been no secret that Beyonce wants to give her daughter Blue Ivy a sibling but she has yet to confirm the news. However, could Beyonce already be proving the rumor true by eating for two? After last night's concert in Dublin, Ireland, Beyonce spent more than $1,000 on a grilled chicken feast from Nando's Chicken in Dublin. Beyonce's staff called in an order for fourteen jumbo platters of chicken, consisting of a total of 28 whole chickens and ten large sides of corn, garlic bread, rice, coleslaw and the restaurant's famed peri peri chips. They also ordered up 70 wings. The grand total: Roughly $1,136.92 . So let the baby bump watching begin!
