CELEB SPOTTING: Newlyweds Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross Honeymooning in Bali

Newlyweds Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross were spotted looking all lovey dovey honeymooning in Bali! Ashlee rocked a hot one-piece swimsuit complete with a straw hat, and Evan, wearing a hat much like his new bride, was shirtless in a pair of swimming trunks. Ashlee was smiling as Evan snapped a picture of her!

Evan’s legendary mother, Diana Ross, said in an exclusive statement to Us Weekly that the couple’s wedding day was great! “The wedding went perfectly,” the singer said of the ceremony. “We had a beautiful rainbow surrounding us, loving family and friends, great music, and great speeches from loving and caring friends, and joyful children dancing the night away.”

The two are definitely a beautiful couple, and it’s wonderful that they’ve found happiness in each other! Best wishes to them both!

Bethany Mota Talks YouTube Success for Seventeen

Seventeen magazine is going to be the first major women’s magazine to dedicate an issue to big stars on YouTube, including beauty and fashion YouTuber Bethany MotaBethany has been a huge success with her own channel dedicated to beauty, fashion and DIY tutorials, gaining over 7 million subscribers! Soon the YouTuber will also be featured on Season 19 of Dancing with the Stars as well. 

Featured on the cover of the mag, Bethany talked about her success story and her hope for other girls in the world. Check out some of the highlights below!

How being bullied inspired Bethany  to start filming beauty videos when she was 13:
“It was so cool seeing girls being positive and spreading happiness. At first, I made beauty videos that were like everyone else’s –- I’d try to act perfect. But then I realized it might be more fun if I was just myself. So I showed my silly side and kept in the bloopers. I liked those videos way more, and people appreciated that realness.”

What it’s been like to grow up on YouTube:
“I think it’s taught me to be a lot more self-motivated and has taught me how to encourage myself and not rely on a teacher or a boss telling me what to do. I’m my own boss. My biggest thing to overcome has been not being afraid to be different. It’s safer to do what everyone else is doing, but it pays off way more to be yourself.”

Her advice for other girls who are trying to find their place in the world:
“You have to be your own motivator! A lot of teens say they’re bored. Before I got on YouTube, I’d say the same thing. But there is always something you can be doing. If YouTube isn’t your thing, maybe it’s a sport or something else you’re good at. There’s always something you can be the best at –- you just have to look for it.”

You can check out Seventeen.com for more! I’ve checked out some of Bethany’s work, and she’s a very charismatic and real young woman who is making an impact doing what she loves. Go her!

Chris Brown Pleads Guilty to Assault

Chris Brown pleaded guilty today to misdemeanor assault, and was sentenced to time served. He only spent two days in a D.C. jail.

The assault occurred back in October, when Chris allegedly hit a man after he tried to get in a picture Chris was taking with two women. The singer was soon arrested, though he previously pleaded not guilty in the case.

Chris’ attorney, Danny Onorato, fought hard for Chris, saying that he had already been punished enough, reminding the court of the time the singer already spent in Jail and four months he spent receiving inpatient counseling. “To say that he’s been punished severely in this matter is an understatement,” Onorato said. Chris’ career has been on hold for almost a year, and he wanted to get back to work, putting this case behind him.

After his hearing, Chris only said: “I would like to say to the court that I’m sorry.”

I REALLY hope that Chris gets his act together. I’d rather hear about his music and career, versus dumb mistakes he makes off of anger.

Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union Get Married in Private Ceremony

NBA player Dwyane Wade and actress Gabrielle Union tied the knot yesterday in an extravagant $5 million wedding in front of family and friends.

The couple were married at the Chateau Artisan Miami, a castle on 14 acres surrounded by a private lake and royal gardens. 200 guests came including Kevin Hart and his fiancee Eniko Parrish, LeBron James, Terrence J, Carmelo and LaLa Anthony and other big name stars.

The female guests were asked to wear white to match the bride, and the men in black to match the groom. Everyone was told to sign confidentiality agreements, as well as leave their phones and cameras at the door, for privacy. In fact, Dwyane even had sun reflectors set up on the roof of the castle to deter any photographers on helicopters!

The bride and the groom were flown down by helicopter for the ceremony which was held at 6:30 pm. With John Legend performing, the couple exchanged vows on one of the gazebos that popped out on the water. Actress Essence Atkins, also Gabrielle’s best friend, officiated the ceremony.

A LOT of detail was put into this ceremony! It sounds like it was absolutely grand and amazing. Congratulations to Dwyane and Gabrielle!

In terms of a reunion of the cast on screen, Zac is very open to working with his old castmates again. “We’re all thinking about it,” he told E!

REPORT: Joan Rivers Placed on Life Support

Joan Rivers is reportedly in even worse condition after complications from throat surgery, and is currently on life support.

According to reports, the comedienne, was placed on life support after she stopped breathing during a routine throat surgery. It’s been said that Joan’s daughter Melissa may have to decide whether or not to keep her iconic mother on life support. If Joan“can’t recover and live a full and active life, she would rather be gone,” a friend told the New York Daily News. “She would never want to be a burden on anyone.”

Joan was previously rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC after the complications from her surgery. It was later said that she was in stable condition under a medically-induced coma.

“I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother,” Melissa said in a statement to Mount Sinai on Friday. “She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.”

So sad! I’m really hoping that Joan pulls through. Thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends at this difficult time.

 Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett will star together in H&M’s holiday campaign, according to WWD.

The unlikely pair will appear in a commercial for the clothing brand, which will debut globally at the end of November. There will also be print, outdoor, and online ads as well.  The actual commercial will feature a track from Gaga and Tony’s upcoming collaborative album, “Cheek to Cheek.” The album, which will feature classic jazz tracks, is due for release Sept. 23.
H&M has used many A-list celebrities for their ad campaigns, including Beyoncé, Lana del Rey, Johnny Depp, Tyra Banks, and more! Gaga herself has been involved with H&M, appearing at the opening of H&M’s Times Square flagship in New York in 2013.
I’m excited to see the commercial and the ads, as well as hear Gaga and Tony’s music!

Glee’s Heather Morris Reportedly Engaged

Engagements and marriages galore! Looks like Glee’s Heather Morris is reportedly engaged to her longtime boyfriend Taylor Hubble.

This engagement is no big shock, though. They’ve been together since high school, and Heather has already known for quite some time that he was the one for her. “I want to marry Taylor and have kids with him!” she said in an interview with Fitness back in 2011. The couple welcomed a son, Elijah, in September 2013.

According to Star, they are planning a February 2015 wedding in California. “They are on cloud nine,” a source says. Regarding their engagement, Us Weekly reports, “They’re super happy together and it just made sense.”

Aww cute! Congrats to them!

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are Married!

STOP THE PRESSES! Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have finally gotten married!

According to USA Today, the couple was married in a private ceremony on Saturday in France, surrounded by close family and friends. All of their kids were involved in the ceremony, as well. Eldest sons Maddox, 13 and Pax, 10 walked their mother down the aisle. Zahara 9, and Vivienne, 6, threw flower petals, and Shiloh, 8, and Knox, 6, served as ring bearers.

It had been reported by the Daily Mail reported that the family had been spotted in France on Friday, but no one knew why. It was probably just thought to be a vacation.

The couple was engaged back in April 2012. However, in 2013, Angelina underwent a double mastectomy, and since then, the couple has been busy filming, so there was no idea of when a wedding would take place.

I’m so happy for them! I always said that, when the time was right for them, they would tie the knot. Congrats to them, and best wishes!

Trey Songz Launches Publishing Company for Aspiring Artists

Trey Songz is going into a new great venture! With a confirmed publishing deal, the singer is planning to assist upcoming talent to be successful in the entertainment industry!

Trey, partnering with Artists Publishing Group, has launched Tucker Songz Publishing. With the new deal, he will work with aspiring artists, songwriters, and producers, along with producer Sterling Brim, Forrest Tucker and Mike Caren.

Trey said of the business plan,

“As I grew as an artist, I had the opportunity to work with several well known producers and writers,” Songz said in a statement. “I recognize that not everyone has access to that, but that they still have raw talent that can be harnessed into greatness. That’s exactly what I intend to do with this new publishing company. I’ve seen Mike Caren turn small names into household names time and time again. We’ve made 6 albums together. We share a respect for each other’s passion for music.  I’m looking forward to learning and growing together in this business.”

Good for him! It’s always great to see celebrities use their own talents to help others rise as well.

MTV MICHAEL JACKSON VIDEO VANGUARD AWARD — Beyoncé

Kevin Hart Engaged to Longtime Girlfriend Eniko Parrish

Kevin Hart FINALLY put a ring on it! The comedian and actor shared on Instagram that he officially proposed to his girlfriend Eniko Parrish, and she accepted!

“She said YEEEEESSSSS…… #Happy #MyRib #iF–kingLoveHer,” Kevin said in a post an image of himself and his fiancee. Eniko’s big, flashy ring just shines as she poses!

Kevin and Eniko have been dating for five years, and Kevin finally proposed at her birthday dinner last night. “Happy Birthday to the most amazing woman in the world. Today is your day babe and we are going to party like it’s 1999….I love you so much. I’m a better man because of you. P.S your old as s–t now lmao #Dirty30 #HappyBday #ThrowBackPic,” he posted on IG prior to the engagement pic. So sweet!

Not that Eniko had any control over the day of her birthday, but I chucked a bit at the fact that the engagement came the same night of the premiere of Kevin’s ex Torrei Hart’s VH1 show Atlanta Exes. I didn’t bother watching, since I feel like this show and Hollywood Exes (which I love) are two completely different shows. Atlanta Exes seems to focus too much on bitterness against these ladies’  exes and I don’t have time for that.

Anyway, it’s good to see Kevin is finally making things official! He and Eniko have been together for a really long time, and they always look so happy together! It was definitely time to take that next step. Congrats to them both!
