Beliebers are not impressed with Selena Gomez.

Being button cute Selena Gomez apparently isn't always fun. Last week Gomez and Bieber were often photographed together, kissing and hugging in Hawaii. Justin's 'Beliebers' aren't too happy about this. According to them Gomez, 18, is 'too old' for Bieber, 17. Other not so nice things that some Beliebers posted were "Selena Gomez will die a slow and painful death" and "why don't you jump off a cliff?". Wow, that's harsh!

Jessica Alba and Cash Warren are expecting a girl!

Let's hope that Cash Warren likes pink! According to a 'friend' (why do celebrities always have 'friends' that like to blab to the tabloids?) Jessica and Cash will welcome another girl into their family later this year.

Almost 3-year old daughter Honor is living proof that the couple make adorable girls, but if their 'friend' is wrong, I'm sure that they'd make adorable boys too!

John Travolta remembers Jeff 'Kenickie' Conaway.

Last Friday Jeff Conaway, famous for his roles in Grease and Taxi Driver, passed away at age 60. John and Jeff met when filming Grease, where Travolta played Danny Zuko and Conaway Kenickie Murdock. Conaway passed away after having slipped into a coma a couple of weeks earlier, due to overutilisation of prescription drugs. Travolta is quoted as saying "Jeff Conaway was a wonderful and decent man and we will miss him. My heartfelt thoughts are with his family and loved ones at this very difficult time,"

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo celebrate their upcoming wedding.

Nick Lachey and his bride-to-be, Vanessa Minnillo, celebrated their upcoming nuptials Sunday with a sunset wedding shower at the London Hotel in West Hollywood. Guests were feted with cocktails and dishes from Gordon Ramsay's hotel kitchen.

The couple arrived around 7 p.m. at the rooftop celebration. According to People, an eyewitness said that "Nick and Vanessa greeted guests hand-in-hand. Vanessa looked gorgeous in a white dress with a black sash. She and Nick both seemed very excited to celebrate with their families and friends."

If you're thinking of sending a gift then you should know that the couple is registered at Williams-Sonoma and Geary's, and shower gifts included Juliska Berry & Thread whitewash dinnerware, Waterford champagne flutes and a Feinberg English Silver wine funnel.

Tony Romo and Candice Crawford tie the knot.

Last Saturday at Arlington Hall, Dallas, Tony Romo and Candice Crawford said their 'I do's'. Apparently some 600 guests (among who, of course, brother of the bride, Chace Crawford). Tony Romo is a quarterback for the Dallas Cowboy's (and Jessica Simpson's ex), whereas Candice is a pageant queen and KDAF-TV anchor.

Romo proposed to Crawford last December on her 24th birthday. He presented her with an 8-carat yellow diamond engagement ring. No word on the wedding rings, or Candice's dress. However, the bridesmaids wore Badgeley Mischka dresses.

Wedding planner Todd Fiscus revealed that food-wise there was a lot of 'man food'. Think short ribs and pizza, because "I have a lot of football players to feed." He was also in charge of the custom gift bag that was given to every out of town wedding guest: a bag monogrammed with the couple's initials, containing a Neiman Marcus gift card, assorted treats from Great One Cookies, a Mix of the Month CD by DJ Lucy Wrubel, a miniature bottle of Moet champagne, a box of Dude Sweet Chocolates, gourmet popcorn, chips and salsa, "Killer Pecans" from Bandera Foods, Voss bottled water, and an assortment of Kiehl's beauty and body products.

Congrats to the newlyweds - Now where do I sign up for that gift bag ;)

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries could make 5 million Dollars with their wedding!

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries only got engaged 9 days ago, but already people see dollar signs. For Kim and Kris that is. Experts say that K&K and their network could earn up to 5 million Dollar with their wedding. They say that the wedding will be a must-see episode of the Kardashians and then smart product placement will do the rest. Wow. Just wow. I never knew it could be so profitable to get married!

On another note Hollywood Image Consultant Michael Sand says that Kim's popularity is likely to rise even further after her wedding. According to Sand everyone will want to see her get married and is her being single 'boring', because everyone has seen that already. Sounds like a 5 star analyis. Anyway, news of Kim's engagement has been all over the internet for the past couple of days, so she definitely has gotten a star boost from it!

Bryce Dallas Howard expecting second child.

Bryce Dallas Howard and husband Seth Gabel are adding to their brood. 4-year old son Theo will get a brother or sister. Howard, 30, has written about her post-partum depression after her first pregnancy. Let's hope for a happy & healthy pregnancy and a big pink cloud after the new baby is born!

Carla Bruni shows baby bump in maternity wear.

4-month pregnant Carla Bruni stepped out in maternity wear to host today's 'wives of G8 summit meetings attendants' luncheon. The 43-year old former supermodel wore a white dress and black woollen coat, when posing for photos she made gestures towards her belly.

Ryan Reynolds opens up about divorce.

Even though he says that "the media wasn't invited to my marriage, and they're definitely not invited into the divorce," Ryan Reynolds has opened up (a little bit) about his divorce from Scarlett Johansson. Reynolds is quoted as saying that anyone who gets divorced goes through a lot of pain, but eventually they'll get out of it, stronger. He says that he hasn't reached that point yet, but that he feels more positive and a different man then six months ago. As far as marriage is concerned, he doesn't think that he'll ever get married again, however that might change in the future, since at the moment he isn't ready to jump back into the dating pool, let alone think about marrying again: "[dating] just seems so kind of alien to me at this point. I've been in relationships pretty much since high school. Some people look at that as a good thing. I think wiser people might see that as a house of cards."

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are sure about each other.

Kris Humphries popped the question after a 6-month courtship, to seem this may seem rather short, but Kris and Kim are convinced that they were made for each other.  "I think probably within a month of meeting her I knew she was 'The One'," Kris says. Whereas Kim says "I really fell in love with him as a person - he's such a good person with a good heart. Everyone that meets him says the same thing."

K&K met in November, during basketball season and got to know each other by making hour-long phone calls. Where previous boyfriends may have failed the family test, Kris fits right in with that Kardashian/Jenners (he even has his own K name to show for it), but what gets Kim the most is that "if I've had a long day, I'm working really hard or I'm stressed, I just can't wait to come home to him. The time that we've spent together, we have so much fun together and he always, no matter what, puts me in a good mood."

Kris Humphries asked future parents-in-law for Kim's hand in marriage.

Kris Humphries' marriage proposal came as a complete surprise to Kim Kardashian, but not to her mother and step-father. Humphries approached Kris and Bruce Jenner a couple of days before the big proposal and asked for Kim's hand in marriage. According to Kris Jenner "it was really just so cute the way that he wanted to surprise her."

So the night that Humphries popped the question mom Kris 'coincidentally' hosted a dinner night, so that the happy couple could come join the dinner and share the good news. While no surprise for Kim's parents, sisters Kourtney and Khloe had no idea. "We were both surprised at the dinner when Kim came out with her big rock and she started waving it in the air" says Kourtney.

According to mom Kris, Kim will organise the whole wedding herself. However, sisters Kourtney and Khloe have already assumed that they're both going to be maids of honour, because "otherwise there would be a war." Well good luck with that Kim ;)

Everything you want to know about Kim Kardashian's engagement ring.

When she was in highschool Kim Kardashian went to Macy's and bought herself her perfect (albeit fake) engagement ring. May 18th she was presented with the real deal and she thinks it's perfect! Fiance Kris Humphries has managed to keep everything under wraps until the big proposal. He and Lorraine Schwartz designed the ring together. All Humphries wanted was it to be big, so it's a good thing that Schwartz is the go-to jeweller of the Kardashians (sister Khloe's ring is also from her hand). Over the years Schwartz has heard it all: from preferred cuts, to favourite shapes, so she had plenty of info to draw from. The final design is a 16 carat emeral cut diamond flanked by a pair of 2-carat trapezoids and apparently cost a whopping 2 million Dollar. It's so big that I wonder if she's having problems with her hand coordination, but Humphries was confident: "I knew she'd love it. She better!"

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are engaged!

According to Kim Kardashian was shocked, when she got home May18th and found her boyfriend Kris Humphries on one knee. In front of Kris lay four words in rose petals: will you marry me? Kim and Kris have been dating for six months and Kim is quoted as saying: "I didn't expect this at all" and "I was in such shock. I never thought it would happen at home, and I never thought now."

Kris proposed with a 20.5 carat (!) custom designed, Lorraine Schwartz ring. He is quoted as saying "I just knew I wanted it to be big." Well, he certainly got his wish, look at the size of that ring! Later in the evening there was a small family celebration. Congrats to the happy couple!

Milli Vanilli film to be filmed this year. For real this time.

Music producer Frank Farian has said it many times before, but apparently this will be the year that the Milli Vanilli movie will start shooting. According to Farian it took a while to get the green light, since filming will have to take place in LA, New York and Munich.

Milli Vanilli, Rob Pilatus and Fab Morvan, scored some really big hits in the 80's: ' Girl you know it's true' and 'Girl I'm gonna miss you'. However, when it was discovered that Rob and Fab didn't actually sing their own songs, their popularity quickly faded. Rob died in 1998, probably due to a drug and alcohol overdose. Fab is still active in the music industry. 

Sofia Coppola and Thomas Mars are planning a summer wedding.

Director Sofia Coppola is momentarily busy directing her own wedding to Thomas Mars. The 'intimate family wedding' is planned for (sometime in) August in the Palazzo Margherita, a 19th century villa that father of the bride Francis Ford Coppola has rebuilt, in Bernalda, Italy.

Coppola, 40, and Phoenix-singer Mars, 34, have two children together: Romy, 4, and Cosima, 1. This will be Coppola's second marriage.

Josh Duhamel and Fergie to start a family?

Will the latest addition to the growing list of pregnant Hollywood celebrities be Fergie? The singer has some time off from the Black Eyed Peas and whereas the other band members focus on their solo careers, Fergie has taken the time to get some more 'personal time' with (superhot) husband Josh Duhamel. Whilst not pregnant yet, they're ready to start a family, as Fergie said it: "Oh yeah, of course. Not right this second. Not pregnant, for the record. But, yeah." Now that will be some cute baby!

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian honeymoon in Mexico.

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian had to wait a couple of weeks before they could take off on their honeymoon, but it definitely seems worth the wait. The pair was spotted strolling on the beach and, of course, everyone was kept up to date via LeAnn's twitter account: "Beautiful night on the beach!!!!" She tweeted first, followed by "Going to sleep to the waves tonight!!!!"

On a different note: lately I've been reading more and more rumours about LeAnn possibly having an eating disorder. I definitely hope not, but this photo has me thinking that her boobs are the only thing keeping her from blowing away....

Russell Brand deported from Japan.

No Japan for Russell Brand. Upon arrival in Japan Russell was taken into police custody and deported from the country. Katy Perry had asked her husband to come see her perform, but the Japanese police decided otherwise. He wasn't allowed to enter Japan because of previous convictions, some 10 years ago.

Russell didn't lose his sense of humour though, tweeting a photo of himself in a white room with the text: "Planning escape from Japanese custody. It's bloody hard to dig a tunnel with a chopstick."

Justin Bieber possibly to record music with girlfriend Selena Gomez!

In an interview after his big win at the Billboard Music Awards Justin Bieber has said that he'll possibly record music with his girlfriend Selena Gomez. Also, he has already listened to her new album and thinks it's amazing. I'm curious what kind of track(s) they'll come up with!

Joe Jonas's solo project.

Joe Jonas has been working on his solo album, that's coming to us somewhere in September. Joe said, that although the experience - of making music without brothers Nick & Kevin - is completely different, it's also been very good: "It's a whole new experience for me. I mean, a good experience, because I'm able to write songs that I have been wanting to write for a long time. It's completely brand new to me."

No worries though, the Jonas brothers will be back. Joe says that the group is just "taking a little break".

Miranda Kerr happiest walking around in her underwear.

In the category "news that will make all men everywhere extremely happy" comes a message from Miranda Kerr. The super-ultra hot Victoria's Angel Model has said that she's most comfortable "just in knickers".
Downside for all men: Miranda is married to ultra cute actor Orlando Bloom and they're new parents to son Flynn (a future heart breaker, no doubt).

Prince Albert and Charlene Wittstock talk about their wedding plans.

Prince Albert of Monaco, 52, and his bride-to-be Charlene Wittstock, 32, have revealed some of their wedding plans in an interview with German tv broadcaster ZDF. Instead of marrying in the Saint Nicholas Cathedral where his parents, Prince Rainier and Princess Gracia, married, Albert and Charlene will marry in the palace courtyard. The courtyard will host about 800 guests, 300 more than would fit in the Cathedral.

According to the groom some surprises are being planned, however the designer of the wedding gown is not a secret, contrary to William and Kate's wedding. Rhodesian-born, Olympic swimmer will walk down the aisle in a Giorgio Armani gown. However, what it looks like is unknown, so we'll have to wait until July 2nd to find that out.

When asked about starting a family Charlene is quoted as saying that "I personally want to have children. I love children, and I simply can't wait to have a family of my own". I wonder how quickly after the wedding the pregnancy rumours will start!

Albert already has two children, daughter Jazmin Grace Grimaldi was born in 1992 and son Alexandre Eric Stephane Coste in 2003. Since both were born out of wedlock they don't have a claim to the throne.

Marion Cotillard welcomes a son.

Marion Cotillard and her husband, the French actor-director Guillaume Canet became first-time parents yesterday evening, when Marion gave birth to their son Marcel. The couple, 35 & 38, met whilst filming 2003's Love me, if you dare and started dating in 2007. Their most recent collaboration was for the movie Little White Lies, which Canet directed.

Congrats on the baby and choosing a lovely, normal name for him. (I'm banning all memories of Ross's monkey being named Marcel. Now.)

New CW Series 'Secret Circle'. Another supernatural tv-series to add to your 'Must Watch'-list.

Can't you get enough of 'True Blood' and 'The Vampire Diaries' either? I'm hooked on both and would be more than happy to throw a third in the mix: Secret Circle. The series will start coming fall. It focuses on Cassie Blake (Britt Robertson), who moves to a small village, where she discovers that she comes from a family of witches. Furthermore, she's part of a coven (conveniently also in that same village) and as a sixth member she completes the circle, unlocking their 'true supernatural potential'.

No matter how vague this description may sound, I'll be glued to the screen :)

Selena Gomez' new album cover revealed.

Selena Gomez revealed her new album cover via Twitter. I'm loving the roaring twenties-style photo. What do you think?

'When the sun goes down' will be released next month. It's Selena's third album and features her new hit single 'Who Says'.

The small ceremony will be followed by a larger wedding celebration in the Alyeska Ski Resort.

William and Kate will have trouble to conceive

Now that the sound of wedding bells has faded into the background it appears that it's time for some new William and Kate rumours.... In Touch Magazine claims to quote Camilla as saying that Kate has fertility issues. Very 'evil stepmom'-like, hadn't we ditched that stereotype a long time ago? Anyway, if they don't conceive within the first 9 months they'll defy a 170 year old tradition. Moreover, if they would adopt, the child would not be able to become king/queen, only biological children have that right, so if they don't have biological children Harry's future oldest child will be the first in line to the thrown.

The things one can worry about not even a month after their wedding, when they haven't even returned from their honeymoon :S I'm calling BS on this article, big time. To all nay-sayers out there I'd like to say: rules (traditions) are made to be broken and let them focus on their own happiness first, before Great-Britain/the rest of the world goes into mass hysteria.

What do you think?

Britney Spears' gruesome training schedule.

Is the thought of exercising 6 hours a day enough to have you break out in sweat? Well, not BritBrit, apparently she does a normal 90-minute exercise routine every day, followed by 5 hours of dance training to get ready for her new North American tour. She's already been at it for 6 weeks and the tour kicks off June 16th in Sacramento. She's already in supershape, but come June 16th she's going to be ripped!

Rachel McAdams & Michael Sheen are coupled up.

Linked together since last fall and photographed arm-in-arm at the Cannes Film Festival last week, their confirmation comes hardly as a surprise, but thanks for confirming it anyway :)

They are very cute together, or does your heart bleed and do you want to see Ryan Gosling and Rachel back together?

Hailee Steinfeld new face of Miu Miu

Coming fall/winter season Hailee Steinfeld, the 14-year old 'True Grit' actress, won't have to worry about her outfits. She just signed on as the new face of Miu Miu for coming season. Other singer/actresses that lend their face to the brand are Vanessa Paradis, Katie Holmes, Lindsay Lohan, Selma Blair, and Evan Rachel Wood.

Sandra Bullock adopting again?

According to rumours, Sandra Bullock may be on the fast track to adopting another baby. The actress, 46, allegedly wants to enlarge her family, that now consists of her and supercute son Louis. A source for 'Star Magazine' says that Sandra would love to expand her family and that the only thing holding her back right now is the amount of travelling she and Louis undertake. I can imagine that travelling with a toddler between Los Angeles, New York and Louis' birthplace New Orleans is quite a task, let alone if you'd add another baby in the mix. The source continues that the new baby could arrive as soon as this summer. Hmmm, quite contradictory statements I would say. I usually take information from these sources with a grain of salt (well, a pound or 2), but since we didn't hear about Louis' adoption until the whole thing had come through the information from this source might actually hold some truth to it.

What do you think?
