Make those memories into new ones! As she works toward finalizing her divorce from her estranged husband, Ryan Sweeting, Kaley Cuoco is proving that she's ready to move on by covering up her Roman numeral wedding date tattoo! Kaley Cuoco posted a photo of herself in the tattoo parlor chair on Instagram with the caption, "Thank you @nero_sct @studiocitytattoo for helping me right my wrongs.. note to self- do not mark your body with any future wedding dates #under30mistakes #donttakeyourselftooseriouslykids." Ouch, clearly that relationship ended badly. Now the tattoo is a giant moth.
What's going on with Justin Bieber? He canceled his Thanksgiving Day Parade performance and his appearance on the "Late Show" with Stephen Colbert. Justin Bieber tweeted, "My apologies to @colbertlateshow as I won't be able to make it to nyc tomorrow for the show. I look forward to making it up to you soon… Thank you for the understanding as sometimes life kicks our ass and we need to deal with it. I will see u soon. Thank you." I'm hearing that Justin Bieber is struggling with personal issues and also feels very run down. Sometimes we all need a break from life!
The verdict is in for John Stamos after he was pulled over and arrested for a DUI. He pled no contest and under the plea deal, John Stamos was placed on 3 years probation and must complete 52 AA meetings in the next year. He also has to get 2 hours of drug and alcohol counseling. John Stamos did check into rehab shortly after his arrest for 30 days.
Is this a new friendship trio? If so I'm love it! Adele went out to dinner with Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone Monday night in NYC at a Mexican restaurant and Adele got the meal for free! Apparently when the bill came, Adele was told that her money wasn't go there and Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence split the bill! Duck carnitas and blue shrimp for free? YUMMY! That's a great way for Adele to celebrate her #1 album! This squad may just be cooler than Taylor Swift's!
Speaking of Adele, it's official! Adele is on top! She now holds the title for most U.S. albums sold in a single week! Her third album, 25 sold 2.43 million albums sold in three days! That means she officially beat *NSYNC's 15 year record when their album No Strings Attached sold 2.41 million albums! Hey, records are made to be broken, right? What's even crazier is that Adele still has three days to break their record, so she's going to make the record harder to beat!
People are still talking about that kiss between Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor durig the American Music Awards on Sunday! So, was it real or staged? Charlie Puth is speaking up, saying there's nothing romantic between them. He explained, "We're best friends! That's another person I can relate to and I ask for advice with everything. We're really great friends and that's never going to change." As for the kiss, it was Meghan Trainor's idea! Smart girl!
Is Katy Perry trying to stir some drama up with Taylor Swift on purpose? Her holiday campaign for H&M has arrived, and it's filled with gingerbread men, elves and nutcrackers. It's also filled with controversy because one of Taylor Swift's dancers is in it. The male model from Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" music video makes a shirtless cameo. Apparently the feud between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry started because Katy Perry was taking her dancers and being fake to her face. Can't we all just get along for the holidays?!
Their family is getting big! Kristin Cavallari and her husband, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, welcomed their third child yesterday! Kristin Cavallari made the announcement that she had her baby girl on Instagram, writing, "Saylor James Cutler was born today at 1:32 p.m." Now her two sons have a sister! I love the name Saylor! Wonder where they came up with it!
I could have guessed that being Mrs. Joe Manganiello has it perks, but this is a pretty big perk! Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello got married on Sunday, and apparently she was treated to a sexy dance from her new hubby and his Magic Mike XXL co-star Channing Tatum! The guys danced to "I Want It That Way" by the Backstreet Boys and put on a show! I would have liked to be front and center for that!
This might just be the best new tour of the year! Rihanna announced her "Anti World Tour" and she's bringing a lot of all-star talent with her. Rihanna's rumored boyfriend Travis Scott is going to be on the North American leg of the tour. Then for the European dates, Rihanna will have The Weeknd and Big Sean as her supporting acts! Tickets go on sale next week! That sounds like a fun tour!
Did you have any pregnancy cravings? Kim Kardashian sure does, and it's all about New Orleans! She loves herself some good beignets and admitted to her mother Kris Jenner and her sister Kourntey Kardashian that after her trip there, she wants them all the time! The beignets were so good that Kim Kardashian had them three times in one day during her trip. Now that she's back home in LA, she's going to extreme lengths to get them. Her mother called her out about it, saying, "I was in the kitchen this morning – you had your chef making the beignets because you brought home the beignet mix!" Kim Kardashian admitted that the original ones from New Orleans are better though. Of course they are! Little sugary pieces of heaven!
I can't wait for the Grammys this year, because it's on target to be a show all about Adele! This is pretty amazing. It's only been three days since her official return, and Adele has already sold 2.3 million copies of her newest album! That makes her only the second artist to ever sell over 2 million physical albums since Billboard began its charts in 1991! Yes, physical albums! By the end of the week Adele could very well have the highest debut week of all time! She would need to be out *NSYNC for the title. They sold 2.4 million copies of No Strings Attached back in 2000. I think she'll crush that record!
Ever since the AMAs, fans everywhere have been hoping that #Jelena is back on! I'm talking about Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. The Biebs was spotted serenading Selena Gomez at a hotel lobby bar and they were also caught going for a late night walk. Sad news though. I'm hearing that the two of them aren't a couple! They just care about each other and miss each other. Hey, that leaves hope for them getting back together in the future right?

At least she's being honest! Gwen Stefani we on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and admitted that in the beginning, she had no idea who Blake Shelton was! Gwen Stefani said, "I didn't even know who he was before I was on the show. Before I was on The Voice I'd never heard of him before … I'm an O.C. girl, like what would I know?" I guess Gwen Stefani wasn't even a little bit into country music!
They are officially family! Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello got married in West Palm Beach, FL last night! Here's some cute details we know about the rehearsal dinner from Saturday night. They had adorable napkins that read "He had me at hola" on them and there was plenty of singing and dancing. Joe Manganiello even grabbed a microphone and sang Sweet Child of Mine" to her. There were plenty of celebrity guests there too, from Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer to Sofia Vergara's Modern Family co-stars Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen, Ed O'Neill and Jesse Tyler Ferguson. (https://www.instagram.com/p/-YKhEdE_Tf/?taken-by=valemicchetti)
Ed Sheeran is pretty successful, but who does he owe all of that success to? Apparently Elton John! When he was asked about what his role is in Ed Sheeran's career, Elton John said, "I've been advising him, and own the company that manages him. He asks me for advice. For example, a couple of years ago, he told me that the record company wanted a follow up to +, but he was also offered a tour with Taylor Swift, 88 shows in America. He said to me. "What should I do?" I said to him, "It's a no-brainer. You do the 88 shows with Taylor Swift." That was the first good piece of advice. The second? Elton John told Ed Sheeran to put out the song "Sing" first, not "Don't." Ed Sheeran listened and the rest is history. Elton John said, "I knew that "Sing" should be the first single, and of course, it worked. He emailed to say, "Thank you so much." He says thank you. He listens. I'm doing it to make sure his career goes the right way. I'm very good at that." Elton John, confident!
Are they back together? Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were spotted hanging out together over the weekend. Not only did they go on a little walk together, but Justin Bieber serenaded Selena Gomez with a performance of the song "My Girl" at a piano in the bar of a hotel. What friend does that? I think these two will always love each other.
Khloe Kardashian shared an updated on her health over the weekend and confirmed that she did indeed get a staph infection at the hospital that Lamar Odom is staying at. She tweeted, "Staph infection is no joke. Mine was exacerbated by stress which is not a great combo. I'm under great medical care&receiving tons of love!" You know it's serious when Khloe Kardashian had to cancel an appearance on her book tour and apparently is under house arrest. Get well soon!
Former Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle had the book thrown at him! A judge sentenced him to 15 and a half years in prison after it was discovered that he was involved with child porn and child prostitution. Since Jared Fogle will be in federal prison, the standard time served is 85%. So that would still be over 13 years, making him a free man in 2029 when he is 51 years old. When Jared Fogle gets out, he will be on lifetime supervised release. There were 12 victims of child porn and 2 victims of child prostitution. His attorneys tried to blame Jared Fogle's weight loss for his "mild pedophilia," saying that he had a compulsive eating disorder and when he lost weight he replaced that compulsion with hypersexuality. I guess a six-inch chicken teriyaki sandwich makes you want to do crazy disgusting things. That argument clearly lost for a reason.
After Jenny McCarthy publicly attacked Charlie Sheen for not being honest about his HIV-positive status when they worked together on "Two and a Half Men," Charlie Sheen's manager has decided to release a statement. He said, "Charlie was infected long after he left 'Two and a Half Men' and long after he worked with Jenny." Jenny McCarthy was worried since the two had kissing scenes together and even though she knows the disease can't be transmitted that way, she's "STD-phobic" and felt she deserved to know. Well hopefully she can feel a little bit better now.
Star Wars mastermind George Lucas is revealing all of his secrets, like who his favorite character is! George Lucas let the world know that if he had to choose one character to be in the Star Wars universe, he'd pick Jar Jar Binks! What's funny is that Jar Jar Binks is considered the least-liked character from the entire franchise and George Lucas has always hated that! How can you hate Jar Jar Binks? After all, his character was inspired by Disney's Goofy! Who doesn't love Goofy?!
This is worse than we thought! Khloe Kardashian apparently contracted a staph infection from visiting Lamar Odom in the hospital and now she's in such bad shape that her family is panicking because someone in their family died from a staph infection! Her mom Kris Jenner is freaking out because her father died from a hospital-born staph infection. Kim Kardashian even tried to visit her sister but her doctors ordered her to stay away because she's 8 months pregnant and it's too dangerous! Khloe Kardashian is getting IV antibiotics and so far the staph is still in her system. Hopefully the medicine will get it out!
Speaking of Lamar Odom, he may be on the road to recovery now, but Khloe Kardashian says he came closer to death than anyone knew. She said that when doctors called her, she was told that he only had four hours to live! Khloe Kardashian explained, "It's a horrible call to get. Getting to the hospital and knowing he's in a coma and having to run these tests or make medical decisions — it's terrifying. You have to make risk-and-reward decisions. Like, okay, well, there's an 80 percent chance if we do this operation, he might pass away. But also, if we don't do it, there's a 90 percent chance he'll pass away." Can you imagine? That's why Khloe Kardashian stopped the divorce papers from going through. No one was there to make these decisions for him. As of now, doctors are hoping that Lamar Odom will be fully recovered in two year, but they still don't know! So sad!
For all my Adele fans out there, don't expect to be able to stream her new music that comes out today on services like Spotify and Apple Music! A spokesman for Adele declined to comment as to why, but I'm hearing that it was Adele's decision. It sounds like she's following in the footsteps of Taylor Swift, who had issues with how the services handled royalty payments and controlled their music. Hey, when you're Adele, you can control how you want your music to be consumed! Don't mess with the stars!
Kelly Clarkson is having a rough time during her second pregnancy. She opened up about feeling under the weather during an interview. Kelly Clarkson said, "I'm familiar with all-day sickness. I have to get IVs and fluids because I get so dehydrated. It's really bad." That's a big change for her, considering the fact that Kelly Clarkson said she only dealt with throwing up a lot when she was pregnant with her first child River Rose. Feel better!
ABC is getting ready for Sunday's American Music Awards, and they are trying to get us ready to with a bunch of teases. Listen to the list of people who are just presenting. Ellie Goulding, Fifth Harmony, Tove Lo, Shawn Mendes, Hailee Steinfeld, Wiz Khalifa, Paula Abdul, Kylie Jenner, Zendaya, Jeremy Renner and Taylor Lautner. Then add in host Jennifer Lopez and performances from 5 Seconds of Summer, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, One Direction and Gwen Stefani. I know what I'll be watching Sunday!
Elle King kicked off a headlining tour this week and she's worked long and hard when it comes to putting everything together. She said we should expect odd things to pop out on stage. But odd things happen off stage too. Many of Elle King's fans don't just want to hear her music, they want to hang out and party with her afterwards. She doesn't mind that, but she wishes some of them wouldn't get so close to her. She explained, "I love my fans, I love to hang out with them, but please stop licking my face though, you guys, 'cause it's getting weird! People are getting real touchy. Just don't lick me. That's fine!" Hey, maybe she tastes good? Who knows! A bit too far though!
It's been a little bit since we've heard Josh Duggar's name and unfortunately for him we're hearing it again because of something bad. He's being sued by adult film actress and model Danica Dillon, who is claiming that Josh Duggar "assaulted her to the point of causing her physical and emotional injuries" while they were intimate. She is asking for $500,000 in damages, saying she has suffered emotionally and physically since the alleged incident and is being treated by a psychiatrist for severe anxiety. Josh Duggar won't catch a break for a long time.
Speaking of women taking a stand against men, Debra Messing is doing the same thing. She's putting men who send naked pictures of themselves to her and other women on blast! Debra Messing tweeted about an Instagram user who did it to her. She wrote, "Sending pix like this, is never OK. RESPECT WOMEN. RESPECT YOURSELVES." Oh, and Debra Messing shared the photo which had been sent to her. Good for her!
Talk about your bad luck! Khloe Kardashian had to cancel a part of her book tour, and I'm hearing it's because she contracted a serious staph infection at the hospital where Lamar Odom is being treated. She has a lesion on her leg and it became incredibly painful. Then came the high fever, swollen glands and going from sweating profusely to getting the chills. All Khloe Kardashian would say via Twitter was, "I'm sick & dr's orders are that I need to lay low until we narrow down what's wrong." Get well soon!
This might just be the most expensive selfie of all time! According to Altitude Tickets, the chance to spend one-on-one time with Justin Bieber to get that selfie with him on his upcoming Purpose tour is valued at a whopping $2,000! The website that sells his tickets lists this VIP experience as The Ultimate #Purpose Experience. As a part of the package, fans will have the chance to snap a selfie with Justin Bieber at a meet and greet and be seated in a barricaded section close to the stage. They will also get a behind-the-scenes tour and a plaque. Only 20 packages were available and sold out immediately. I guess a lot of people don't care about the price tag when it comes to Justin Bieber!
Some presidential candidates complain that it's easy to gain weight on the campaign trail since you have to stop on the way for a lot of fast food to get a meal in. Well, not Donald Trump. Donald Trump said, "I have actually lost 15 lbs. on the campaign trail. There's so little time to be eating. I tend to just be able to eat snacks because it's so busy and there are so many people and so much hoopla everywhere I go." He also said that talking in front of crowds amps him up and you don't feel like eating after all that. So if you want to lose weight, just run for office!
After Charlie Sheen revealed to Matt Lauer on the Today Show that he's HIV-positive, he wrote an open letter for the morning program's website that spoke about his struggle. Charlie Sheen wrote that getting the news was a "mule kick" to his being. He explained that it was a reality he couldn't escape. That reality made him spiral into a world of drug and alcohol abuse, which led to other behavioral issues. It caught up with him, leading to Charlie Sheen getting fired from his longtime role on Two and a Half Men. Now, Charlie Sheen is saying those days are behind him. He finished by saying, "I accept this condition not as a curse or scourge, but rather as an opportunity and a challenge. An opportunity to help others. A challenge to better myself. My partying days are behind me. My philanthropic days are ahead of me . . . I've served my time under pressure; I now embrace the courage, and the grace." Well, at least his behavior all makes sense now.
Saturday Night Live is ending 2015 in a huge way! NBC just announced that Ryan Gosling, Chris Hemsworth and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be hosting the year's final three shows. Ryan Gosling will be hosting for the first time. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will close out the year on December 19th with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. That's one heck of a final show!
Got to give a big shoutout to this hottie! David Beckham is People Magazine's choice for this year's Sexiest Man Alive! David Beckham said, "It's a huge honor. And I'm very pleased to accept. I never feel that I'm an attractive, sexy person," he says in this week's cover story. I mean I like to wear nice clothes and nice suits and look and feel good, but I don't ever think of myself that way." Really? He's only been a symbol of sexiness for almost two decades! Congratulations!
There's a lot of rumors surrounding Adele's new album, and many of them are about who she collaborated with on the album. Another rumor is that Adele turned Beyonce down when it came to doing a song together. Well, she had something to say about it. Adele explained, "There's a rumor going round that I turned Beyoncé down. Which I would never be so disrespectful as to do. I'd never disrespect her like that. Obviously, like, Queen B 'til the day I die." Ah… even Adele is a sucker for Queen B! I love this woman!
Another Memphis baby is on the way! That's because Snow White and Prince Charming are expanding their family! Memphis Ginnifer Goodwin and her husband Josh Dallas are expecting their second child! The Once Upon A Time stars had their first child, Oliver, under two years ago. It looks like this family really is living happily ever after!
Rose McGowan has been laying low for a while, so it seems like she's trying to purposely stir stuff up with this one. She got on Facebook to call out Glamour magazine's Woman of the Year Caitlyn Jenner, who joked in her acceptance speech that "the hardest part about being a woman is figuring out what to wear." Rose McGowan wrote, "Caitlyn Jenner, you do not understand what being a woman is about at all. You want to be a woman and stand with us—well learn us. We are more than deciding what to wear… Woman of the year? No, not until you wake up and join the fight. Being a woman comes with a lot of baggage. The weight of unequal history. You'd do well to learn it. You'd do well to wake up." Phew! Calm down angry! Take a joke!
This is a heated fight in the kitchen! When asked about his thoughts on Guy Fieri, Anothony Bourdain said, "I wonder about him. He's 52 years old and still rolling around in the flame outfit…What does he do?" So Guy Fieri fired back, saying that Anthony Bourdain has "definitely gotta have issues, 'cos the average person doesn't behave that way. It's actually disappointing…I don't like him making fun of people, and I don't like him talking s--t. And he's never talked s--t to my face." Ouch! If you have something to say Anthony Bourdain, say it to his face!
A bombshell is about to be dropped! Charlie Sheen is reportedly HIV positive and will discuss his HIV status on the Today Show today! Charlie Sheen has kept his HIV status under wraps, but everything unraveled when some former partners threatened him with lawsuits because they didn't know he had it and they interacted with him. People like his second ex-wife, Denise Richards, has known for years that Charlie Sheen is HIV positive and that he got infected after they were together. I'm hearing that Charlie Sheen has known that he's HIV positive for years and tried to keep it quiet. His position now is that he beat the disease because it's undetectable in his system. Doctors beg to differ. This interview will be interesting.
Lorde wants to shut the rumors down. People thought that her performance on Saturday Night Live with Disclosure was a little too perfect. Lorde's vocals were so on-point that people felt that the performance wasn't live and that she was lip-syncing to a pre-taped vocal track. Lorde got on Twitter and wrote, "goes without saying I have never/will never [lip sync]." Now leave her alone! Now if she ever lip syncs, people have a screenshot of this tweet and will try to use it against her!
Adele is perfectly happy with her boyfriend, Simon Konecki, and her son, Angelo, but she still has one last to heck with you message for her ex-boyfriend. It's all through a song called, "Send My Love (to Your New Lover)." Adele said, "This is my f–k-you song. It sounds obvious, but I think you only learn to love again when you fall in love again. I'm in that place. My love is deep and true with my man, and that puts me in a position where I can finally reach out a hand to the ex. Let him know I'm over it." I think we call that closure! Nothing wrong with that!
Paul Walker's daughter is going to have a fight on her hands with her wrongful death lawsuit when it comes to her father. That's because Porsche has fired back, saying that Paul Walker's death was his own fault. Porsche is stating that Paul Walker was "a knowledgeable and sophisticated user of the 2005 Carrera GT" and that the car's design wasn't defective. They are also saying that Paul Walker should not have allowed or participated in a high-speed ride under the conditions that existed. Things are about to get ugly!
This has got to hurt! Before Gwen Stefani learned of her husband Gavin Rossdale's affair with their nanny, Mindy Mann, the couple apparently loaned her $50,000 to start her own business! The name of the business is Pint Size Kids and it's an indoor playground. The nanny didn't ask for the money. It was Gavin Rossdale who found out that she needed help to open the business and got that going. Eek! I wonder if this is all hurting her business. Poor Gwen Stefani!
Christina Aguilera loves being a mother of two, and now she's opening up why she took a little break from being on The Voice. It turns out it wasn't just about making new music, it was about being there for her kids, spending nearly every moment watching them grow and focusing on how she wants to raise them. Christina Aguilera said she's raising her children to be socially aware and responsible. She explained, "I don't even like arguing or having a little spat about anything in front of my children because we should always be the example of peace and tranquility and safety, which I didn't have growing up as a child, so that's first and foremost." I love seeing her in mommy mode!
For the first time ever, Billboard has ranked the top albums and artists ever on their signature Billboard 200 album chart. The top honor goes to Adele! Her album 21 took the number one spot as the greatest album of all time! The Beatles were celebrated as top artist.
For Bono, the attacks in Paris mark a new low. He was doing an interview and said, "If you think about it, the majority of victims… are music fans. This is the first direct hit on music that we've had in this so-called War on Terror. And it's very upsetting. These are our people. ... The cold-blooded effect of this slaughter is deeply disturbing and that's what I can't get out of my head." On Friday night, U2 was actually in Paris rehearsing a few miles away from where all of those people died. It could have easily happened at their concert too.
Lady Gaga is starting a fight of her own! After watching Ronda Rousey lose to Holly Holm, Lady Gaga called her out on Instagram! Lady Gaga put up a picture of UFC fighter Ronda Rousey getting knocked out and wrote, "THATS WHAT YOU GET FOR NOT TOUCHING GLOVES!" Ronda Rousey didn't do that before the start of the fight. BURN! Lady Gaga, bringing the hurt!
Kim Kardashian isn't holding back when it comes to her pregnancy lows. She said, "Some people find it blissful, they feel sexy, they feel alive. I feel completely the opposite! I totally respect the struggle people have to go through. But that doesn't mean I have to lie and say that it's blissful. I find it to be a miserable experience." Hey sometimes, it's hard to love one minute of pregnancy. Kim Kardashian did say it was all worth it in the end to have a child. After all, this is her second time going through it.
Most people would be petrified to cover a song by Adele. Well, not Demi Lovato! She decided to take on Adele's new song "Hello" in concert! Watch it below. Not too bad for trying to take on the queen!
Madonna is taking a stand against ISIS! She couldn't hold back her tears at her concert in Sweden as she stopped the show to pay tribute to the victims of the Paris attacks and their families. Madonna delivered a powerful message about tolerance after she thought about canceling her show. She said, "I feel torn. Like, why am I up here dancing and having fun when people are crying over the loss of their loved ones. However, that is exactly what these people want to do. They want to shut us up. They want to silence us. And we won't let them. Because there is power in unity and I do believe that as much chaos and pain and senseless violence and terrorism that occurs around this world, not just in Paris, as much as that that does occur, there is more goodness in this world. We are here to prove it." She then observed a moment of silence and went into "Like A Prayer." Coldplay did something very similar at their concert.
Blake Shelton is a hero! Late last week, the Voice coach helped rescue four young men after their truck got stuck in a mudhole near the Washita River in Oklahoma. Bryar Blanton said, "Me and my buddies were checking out the river, when some of my buddies [accidentally] slid into a big mud hole and got stuck for about two hours. Me and [my friend] Adrian started walking down the road [looking for help] and Blake and his dog, Betty, stopped and picked us up in his truck. Then, we went back to the river and he [Blake] tried to get them out with his truck. He couldn't do it, so he said he would be back in 15 minutes with his tractor. I was just like, 'Heck yeah!...' He lives about 45 minutes from me." What are the odds of that? The fan shared the photo on Twitter, along with the caption, "@blakeshelton just wanna thank you for helping us yesterday man." Blake Shelton tweeted him back and said, "No problem.. Now you boys stay outta jail!! Ha!!!"
You have to love Blake Shelton for his sense of humor. He's got something to say about the rumor that he's having a baby with girlfriend Gwen Stefani. The pregnancy allegation came up when a fan tweeted to him, "I just read that I am having your love child…" Blake Shelton replied, "Ha!!! You too!!! Damn I'm fertile!!" Someone else also said to him it's crazy how people fall for this stuff and Blake Shelton wrote, "Surely not… People can't be that dumb?" Blake Shelton saved the best for last though. Someone tweeted, "Next weeks headline: @blakeshelton caught in love triangle with alien from outer space and was caught drinking a beer with Elvis. Haha." Blake Shleton said, "Now that one could be true." LOVE HIM!
The Weeknd and Ed Sheeran are pretty generous and drop some change! They bumped into a homeless vet in the street as they were leaving Leonardo DiCaprio's birthday party and guess what? They gave him money! The fact it was Veteran's Day probably helped his cause, but let's just say that The Weekend and Ed Sheeran are awesome. No word on who gave more money!
Britney Spears wants to give back, and she's doing it through dancing! She gave a bunch of girls a huge surprise when she took over their dance class and choreographed a new routine for them! The owner of a Vegas dance studio said that Britney Spear's people contacted her a couple weeks ago and said that she wanted to reconnect with her dance roots. Just a few days later, Britney Spears showed up to a class filled with kids aged 8 to 18 and danced it out with them! Pretty cool!
Last week, a man tried to sue Taylor Swift for $42 million dollars because he was claiming that her hit "Shake It Off" uses lyrics from his song, "Haters Gone Hate." Well, a judge dismissed the lawsuit and did it in the best way possible. She quoted Taylor Swift's lyrics. Judge Standish said, "At present, the Court is not saying that Braham can never, ever, ever get his case back in court. But, for now, we have got problems, and the Court is not sure Braham can solve them. As currently drafted, the Complaint has a blank space -- one that requires Braham to do more than write his name. And, upon consideration of the Court's explanation in Part II, Braham may discover that mere pleading Band-Aids will not fix the bullet holes in his case. At least for the moment, Defendants have shaken off this lawsuit." THIS JUDGE IS AWESOME!
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have been spending a lot of time with Jennifer Lawrence, but it may not be by choice. Jennifer Lawrence has been battling a case of boredom since taking some time off from her busy filming schedule, so she's turning to her neighbors to be entertained. They just happen to be her neighbors! Jennifer Lawrence said, "I've made friends with Mila and Ashton, two doors down. They're awesome. I go over there uninvited. They're probably getting pretty sick of me." Hey, maybe if you offered to babysit their kid, they won't mind as much!
Adele has a method to her madness when it comes to making amazing music. What's her rule of thumb? The song needs to make her cry! Adele said, "In order for me to feel confident with one of my songs it has to really move me. That's how I know that I've written a good song for myself — it's when I start crying. It's when I just break out in [expletive] tears in the vocal booth or in the studio, and I'll need a moment to myself." Well congrats! That method is definitely working for her!
More of the story is coming out! Turns out it was a very unhappy ending for Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale. It's being reported that their 13-year marriage ended because Gavin Rossdale cheated on Gwen Stefani with… wait for it… the family's longtime nanny! It always seems to be the nanny! Gwen Stefani's rep couldn't be reached and Gavin Rossdale's rep refused to comment. The affair was apparently going on for three years and that includes a timeframe when she was pregnant with one of their children. Gwen Stefani found out by discovering explicit text messages between the two of them. One of the other nannies found the exchange and told her. Gwen Stefani was devastated, livid and embarrassed that it happened right under her nose. Awful!
Adele has magic powers! That's because her song "Hello" is actually healing hearts! A new study shows that 64% of women who've listened to the song felt motivated to reconnect with their exes. 41,000 men and women were surveyed. As for the guys, only 17% of men have felt the same way. Hey, at least this survey also proves that women are more open to talk about issues and face their past relationships head on! Thanks Adele for the courage!
I'm super jealous that Behati Prinsloo is married to Adam Levine, and not just because it's Adam Levine. It's also because he's a great husband too! Adam Levine couldn't make it to New York on Tuesday to see Behati Prinsloo in the 2015 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show because he was filming for The Voice, and since he knew it was a big deal for her he did something very special. Adam Levine had a surprise waiting for her when she came home after the show. That surprise was walking into her empty apartment being filled with roses. Lucky girl!

If you haven't noticed, John Goodman is looking much thinner these days. He's actually lost over 100 pounds. So, how did he do it? According to John Goodman's trainer and fitness guru Mackie Shilstone, John Goodman committed by exercising six times a day, trying to take at least 10-12,000 steps a day, not drinking and changing up his diet. That diet was a "Mediterranean-style eating plan." That sounds good, I'm going to look that diet up! Put in the work!
Tom Cruise is freaking out and it's all thanks to Leah Remini! He's apparently worried about Leah Remini's dishy press tour for her Scientology-focused book. In her memoir, Leah Remini talks about odd things that Tom Cruise did, including a time he allegedly had a meltdown while trying to bake cookies. What happened? He supposedly started screaming at his assistants as he looked for baking ingredients even though there was a batch of prepackaged dough right in front of him. Tom Cruise feels that it's a major betrayal that Leah Remini is sharing these stories. Well I'd be mad if stories like that were getting out too.
Watch out, if you go to college you may just bump into Ed Sheeran! He managed to squeeze the entire college experience into one night since he dropped out of school at the age of 16. Ed Sheeran was spotted all over North Carolina Tuesday night with his rumored girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn. She goes to Duke University. What's cute is that Ed Sheeran was filmed learning how to play beer pong at a Duke party. Then the two of them made their way to a bar and hit up a frat house at UNC. Ed Sheeran even ended the night in true college fashion. He grabbed a sandwich at the only place still open at 3 am on campus. I miss those days!
Shia LaBeouf sure knows how to pamper his fans! He's spending the next three days watching every single one of his movies at the Angelika Film Center in New York City without any breaks and giving his fans a front row seat! HA! Shia LaBeouf made the announcement on Twitter, writing "#ALLMYMOVIES," along with a link to a live stream so people can watch him while he's watching his films. It all started yesterday and he started with his newest movie because Shia LaBeouf will be viewing his films in reverse chronological order. He's thought long and hard about this.
Can you imagine the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise without Johnny Depp? Well it almost happened because the team at Disney wasn't always convinced that he had what it took to be Captain Jack Sparrow. Johnny Depp said, "Yeah, they wanted to fire me. It trickled back to me that [former Disney CEO] Michael Eisner went on some sort of bent about how… 'Johnny Depp's ruining the film! Is it drunk?' So I fully expected to be fired." I guess Johnny Depp showed up on set drunk a lot! To be Captain Jack Sparrow, you have to be a little bit out of your mind!
Some people would kill to see inside the closest of celebrities. Well now John Legend gave us a sneak peak of his wife, Chrissy Teigen's collection!

But she let her husband John Legend film it from home and send the video in to the show. He pranked her good! Check it out!
We have an update on Lamar Odom after he was found unconscious in a brothel and hospitalized! Khloe Kardashian gave the update herself, explaining, "He's definitely doing better which is awesome, every day is better. He's off of all machines. He is alive on his own, and no machines are helping him, which is great. But he still has a lot of physical and cognitive therapy to go through, so it's a long road for him." So it sounds like Lamar Odom is slowly making progress. All good news!

This all starts tomorrow, so get ready to be on the lookout for Justin Bieber picking you up! That beats any cab ride if you ask me, just for the entertainment alone!
Gwen Stefani sounds a little bit overwhelmed. After both her rep and Blake Shelton's rep confirmed that they are dating each other, Gwen Stefani wants to make one thing clear. They aren't in a relationship! Gwen Stefani was talking about her album when she was asked, "You're in a new relationship. Are there songs about newfound love or newfound relationships on the album?" Gwen Stefani's answer was priceless. She said, "Wow, that's really personal. This is what I'll say about that: I never said nothin' about being in a new relationship. I don't know who said that but somebody did, and then my kid came in last night to tell me about it. That's how crazy my life is. People can just say whatever they want and then they can just believe it." Ok Gwen Stefani, calm down! Looks like she's not too crazy about labels. We all know you're together!
Blake Shelton is a pro at handling big crowds and being on TV every week, but now he's taking on a new challenge! The Voice star is set to host Nickelodeon's 2016 Kids' Choice Awards! Blake Shelton said, "I've been on countless stages throughout my life, but none have promised the madness, excitement and endless slime as Nick's Kids' Choice Awards, which is undoubtedly the ultimate party for kids." I would love to see Blake Shelton get slimed! He's really working it these days!
This is sad but I totally understand. In Robin Williams' will, Disney is prevented from using his Genie voice in any future Aladdin movies. All of his original 1991 recording sessions as the Genie cannot be used, and will remain on the cutting room floor. Robin Williams' other famous roles also can't be messed with. So for example, all unused tapings from his work in Good Morning, Vietnam and Mrs. Doubtfire are off limits too! That makes me so sad! I would love to see and hear that stuff!
Pretty woman gives pretty good advice! Julia Roberts revealed the secret to her successful 13-year marriage to cameraman Danny Moder and it's pretty simple. When asked what would be a good tip for future entertainment couples to stay together, Julia Roberts said, "I don't think it's exclusive to entertainment couples. I wouldn't even think of us as an entertainment couple, but I don't know. Kissing." That's it! Just get your kissing on! Hey, Julia Roberts has three kids and has been married since 2002. She has to be doing SOMETHING right! One of those things is being pretty quiet about her relationship!
People are mad at Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas! Their tour isn't off to a great start because fans are very mad about an over $10,000 VIP package that doesn't even include concert tickets! It's called the Ultimate VIP Dressing Room Package and it does buy you cool access like a private backstage dressing room with your personal tour rider, visit and photos with Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas, and signed concert swag. Here's the fun part though. There's access to a side stage platform during their set, so if you're ok paying $10,000 to watch the show off to the side with an obstructed view, go for it! No tickets! 1. Really, and 2. who is paying $10,000 for that?
The reports were false! After caring for her ex-husband and possibly still current husband Lamar Odom in the hospital, Khloe Kardashian was photographed with her boyfriend, James Harden over the weekend. This is the first time they've been spotted together since Lamar Odom was hospitalized last month. Apparently the two of them never broke up and has been nothing but a support system for Khloe Kardashian this whole time! That's a good guy right there!
Kanye West never ceases to amaze me. It turns out that he needs to make sure he has amazing hair. According to Rihanna's dad, when he spent a month on tour with Kanye West and his daughter in 2010, Kanye West had a $500 haircut every day! RIhanna's dad said, "It's crazy – he pays his barber $500 a time. I don't understand how that much hair gets taken off. Kanye just loves the fresh look." It better be more than fresh for $500!
Ashton Kutcher is messing with us! He shared a picture on Instagram over the weekend of a little girl who may just be his 12-month-old daughter, Wyatt! Ashton Kutcher didn't say who the child was in the adorable picture. There was only a caption that read, 39 million people have fallen through the cracks into modern day slavery #redsandproject." The Red Sand Project raises awareness of human trafficking and modern day slavery. Ashton Kutcher and wife Mila Kunis have mostly kept their daughter out of the public eye so we are dying to see a picture of her! He knows what he's doing! There's one way to get people to talk!
Sam Smith needs more time to heal! He didn't show up for his scheduled performance last night at LACMA's fifth annual Art + Film Gala. Sam Smith was under the weather this weekend and had to cancel. He is also back on vocal rest. A rep for Smith did not respond to a request for comment. Considering the fact that Sam Smith just had to have vocal chord surgery, he may want to take it easy for a while.
Donald Trump is bringing the ratings, again! With Donald Trump hosting, Saturday Night Live jumped to its biggest overnight rating since 2012. According to NBC, SNL beat the season's previous high record ratings, which was the 41st season premiere last month. Ironically, that episode was hosted by Miley Cyrus and there was a special guest appearance by Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump was pretty confident that he'd boost SNL's numbers, even stating, "I get the best ratings." Turns out he was right!

The winning bidder took home the white piano for $50,000! Miley Cyrus needs to help out more often!

So they go to therapy to make sure that their relationship is always on the right track! Kristin Cavallari said, "I'm not ashamed to say that Jay and I consistently go to therapy, because it's been extremely beneficial for our relationship. For example, when you're fighting you should never place blame on your partner by saying, 'you do this' or 'you do that.' You should say how those actions make you feel. It goes a long way." Looks like you can learn a lot from therapy!

Well, good to know that she can get over divorces real quickly!
It's official! Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are dating! Gwen Stefani's rep confirmed the news, saying, "Gwen and Blake are longtime friends who have very recently started dating." Her rep wouldn't say more than that! So it looks like all that flirtation on the set of The Voice was real! Along with those blurry pictures of them getting cozy with each other at multiple Halloween parties over the weekend! There's nothing better than two newly single and recently divorced people finding love!
Serena Williams is a woman that kicks butt! A man tried to snatch her phone from the seat next to her at a Chinese restaurant where she was having dinner and Serena Williams stopped him! She posted about it on Facebook, writing, "I was sitting enjoying some Chinese food (delicious may I add) and this guy stands next to me… Then when least expected lo and behold this common petty thief grabbed my phone and swiftly left." When Serena Williams noticed, she jumped up and chased him outside of the restaurant. She made a joke that her "sprints came in handy" as she grabbed the phone snatcher and then asked him if he picked up the wrong phone by mistake. Fat chance! The restaurant gave her a standing ovation when she came back.

"Hello" was viewed 50 million times within the first 48 hours of it's release date! We love it Adele! Keep the new music coming!
Never ask Leah Remini to play tag… unless you're Tom Cruise. This is super weird. In her controversial tell-all, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, Leah Remini is saying that Tom Cruise once asked some of his friends, including Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, to play the children's game at his home! Leah Remini thought that Tom Cruise was joking at first. She didn't say if she ended up playing the game or not, but Leah Remini did claim that "you didn't just say no to 'Mr. Cruise' even when it came to little things." So I guess she played tag then!
The CMAs were amazing last night, and the highlight that everyone is talking about is Justin Timberalke singing with Chris Stapleton!
Halle Berry's ex-husband David Justice has some strong feelings about her split from Olivier Martinez. He slammed her in a Twitter rant, claiming she tried to destroy his character after their divorce in 1997, and warning Olivier Martinez that the same thing could happen to him. David Justice even mentioned some of Halle Berry's other exes, tweeting, "Yup..Me,Eric,Gabriel and Olivier were all her "Knight in Shining Armor",until it ends..Then we all become the worst guys in history." David Justice wound up deleting most of his tweets and said he only tweeted those things because having three kids, it's not ok to let those rumors just go around. He also said that he meant no disrespect to Halle Berry. Ok then!

It will not be Here Comes Honey Boo Boo kind of thing but it will be reality TV and it will be real and unscripted like we have always ever been, that's [the] only kind of TV we believe in and we want you all to see the true side of all of us." After TLC canceled their show because Mama June was dating a registered sex offender, I wonder who picked them up and if people will watch!

Justin Bieber is making more people angry today. This time it's the people in Iceland that are angry. He pulled a dangerous stunt when he jumped into glacial water in a remote part of Iceland for his "I'll Show You" music video and now people are worried about others doing it too. The issue? The glacial lagoon that Justin Bieber jumped into has water that could be deadly because the temperatures range between 3 degrees and -3 degrees Celsius. So, if the temperature doesn't kill you, an iceberg might because several are floating in the lagoon and they tend to flip and break up unexpectedly. Also, the closest town for help is an hour away. So please, don't jump into the lagoon people!
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are speaking out after they were reportedly spotted holding hands at a party together over Halloween weekend. When Gwen Stefani was pushed to talk about Blake Shelton during an interview, she deflected and said, "I'm not going to answer that right now. I think I've given enough of myself this morning to you. But I think he's hot, don't you?" Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are both going through a divorce, and Gwen Stefani says that they are comforting each other. She explained, "We're just trying to have fun." Sometimes with all that stress, you just have to blow off some steam!
Adele is finding the motivation to be healthy and get in shape. I'm going to guess it's because she has a tour coming up and is about to start hitting the ground running. As for the gym though, she doesn't love it. Adele said, "I mainly moan. I'm not, like, skipping to the f------ gym. I don't enjoy it." She also lowered her sugar intake but refuses to completely cut out the carbs. Adele explained, "I'd never deprive myself like that!" She's even given up smoking and drinking now that she has a three year old son! Adele said that the mix of kids with hangovers are torture. AMEN!
Sam Smith is single and ready to mingle. It might be hard to believe but the 23-year-old isn't in a romantic relationship! Sam Smith got even more personal, saying, "I've never had a boyfriend so I don't really know any different, which I think is very lucky actually. I'm still learning on what's right and what's normal in dates. I think with anyone, you have to learn how to trust people and there's different challenges and hurdles in my life now but I'm trying to remain as normal as I was before." Wow, someone has been hurt pretty badly. The right person will come along!
The battle is over! Casey Kasem's kids won a big fight with their dad's widow. They are getting to cash a life insurance check that Jean Kasem tried to keep away from them. Casey Kasem's 4 kids will get one of two $2 million life insurance policies he left behind after his death in June 2014. One was left for his wife and the other was a trust in the kids' names but Casey Kasem's wife tried to stop them from getting the money. The judge ruled in the kids' favor, saying the trustee is the sole and rightful beneficiary.
If you're the child of a celebrity, and you want to go into showbiz yourself, you can either use your parent's connections, or climb the ladder of success on your talent alone. Elle King chose to bank on her talent. Some people don't realize this, but her father is comedian and actor Rob Schneider. Elle King changed her name because she said, "I wanted to be myself...I am my own person." Elle King was actually born Tanner Elle Schneider. Elle King also said, "I wanted to be a performer. But I worked really hard and I did everything myself and I took a name that...is my mother's name...I took that name because I wanted to be myself." I think she's accomplished that!
Adele is becoming the new Taylor Swift and breaking more records. Her latest hit single "Hello" set a record for the most U.S. downloads sold in a week: 1.11 million downloads to be exact! She beat out Flo Rida with his song "Right Round" for the record. It looks like we know what we want to hear… and to think Adele was worried that no one would care about her coming back into the spotlight!
Only Kim Kardashian could be trending for shoes. She was spotted wearing rubber sandals that are reportedly worth $300! Kim Kardashian was wearing Givenchy shower shoes while she was out with Kanye West. Maybe as her due date is approaching, Kim Kardashian can't wear high heels anymore. Regardless, must be nice to be able to wear $300 sandals, just because you can.
This is so cool! Sandra Bullock's next project with George Clooney is reportedly going to be an Ocean's Eleven reboot! She's supposedly in talks to play the lead in an all-female roster of thieves! I'd be down for an Ocean's Eleven reboot with all women! If they can do it with Ghostbusters, why not with this?! Plus with George Clooney producing, this sounds like a total win!
Could Kanye West and Jay Z really be bigger divas than their famous wives? That answer might just be yes thanks to their hotel rider lists being leaked by TMZ! Listen to some of their demands! Jay Z wants all the rooms to be 71 degrees and baby proof for Blue Ivy. No vacuuming is allowed near his room and my personal favorite… staff should not ask for free concert tickets if they want to "avoid embarrassment." As for Kanye West, vases in the room need to be cylindrical. All floss must be minty. There must also be Kashi GoLean cereal and all towels must be black. Oh and in case you were wondering, Blue Ivy only drinks organic whole milk.
Nick Carter and his wife also found out if they are having a baby boy or baby girl...
Oh and just for fun, here's Justin Bieber stopping a performance because people weren't clapping on beat!
Is Jimmy Fallon headed down a dangerous path? Apparently he's one of NBC's biggest worries. Jimmy Fallon has had three injuries in the past four months and NBC is worried that Jimmy Fallon's drinking has become excessive. Bartenders and former SNL cast members are saying that he is a mess but everyone loves him and has a Jimmy Fallon story. He's a happy drunk and loves being the life of the party. But the drinking is now happenings because of the stress of his job. Jimmy Fallon tapes "The Tonight Show" five days a week, often working up to 12 hours a day. He deals with the newfound stress and pressure by hitting the bottle. Hopefully he has it under control!
I wonder how Will Smith's older son feels about this one! Will Smith posted a touching tribute to his daughter Willow Smith on Facebook for her 15th birthday on Halloween. He wrote, "Happy birthday, my Bean. 15 years today! When you were born, it took about two seconds to realize that I was willing to die for you. Thank you for correcting my heart and teaching me how to live without constriction or condition." The post went viral, getting over 1 million likes and 15,000 shares. So what did his son Jaden Smith teach him? I'm afraid to ask!
Heidi Klum is known for her crazy and amazing Halloween costumes. Well, after weeks of teasing, she finally revealed her 2015 Halloween costume.

Heidi Klum even created her own hashtag, which was #heidiHalloween."
Raven Symone has been causing quite the drama with her opinions on The View, and now ABC has responded to a petition asking that they remove her from her co-hosting duties. A spokesperson for ABC told E! news, "We love Raven. She is confident, genuine and opinionated, all qualities that make her a great addition to the panel." Raven Symone recently upset people on Twitter with her thoughts on the Spring Valley High School assault incident and she also upset people by saying she wouldn't hire someone with a "ghetto" name. Well, at least ABC is standing by her!
Taylor Swift sure knows how to bring her Halloween surprise A game! During her concert in Tampa, Florida on Saturday night, she brought out the perfect special celebrity guest who was dressed for the moment. It was Idina Menzel, and the two of them sang "Let It Go," from Disney's Frozen! The best part, Idina Menzel was dressed in her character Elsa's sparking turquoise gown and Taylor Swift was dressed as Olaf the snowman!
Speaking of Taylor Swift, she is being sued for $42 million! Why? How about for allegedly stealing the lyrics to her hit 2014 song Shake It Off? A R&B singer named Jesse Braham has claimed in legal papers that Taylor Swift stole the words from a song he wrote in 2013 called Haters Gone Hate. In addition to being paid, Mr Braham also wants his name added as a writer on the track! Good luck with that! Representatives for Taylor Swift haven't commented on the legal case.
Not cool! Scarlett Johannson ruined the magic of Disneyworld for some people! She was there with her husband last week and the park took extraordinary steps to keep it under wraps. So much in fact that when Scarlett Johannson and her husband went on the Tower of Terror ride with people, Disneyworld removed the picture so it wouldn't be posted in public when people got off the ride. Families that were on the same ride got upset and demanded answers when they were told that their pictures didn't exist. After speaking with nearly a half dozen employees, someone from the park sent them an email with the photo. No one knows if Scarlett Johannson asked for the pictures to be taken down or if it was Disneyworld. One thing I do know though is that Disneyworld normally doesn't do this because plenty of celebs have been spotted on rides before! Shame shame shame Scarlett Johannson!
