More than just celebrity gossip

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin Separate

Sadly, it’s another celebrity couple calling it quits! After 10 years of marriage, actress Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay‘s Chris Martin have decided to separate.

The couple announced the news on Gwyneth’s  lifestyle website GOOP, with a post titled “Conscious Uncoupling”.  “It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate,” they stated. “We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate.”

“We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been,” they continued. “We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner.”

The couple had just celebrated 10 years this past December. They have two children: daughter Apple, 9, and son Moses, 7.

Sad to see them splitting up, but at least they are separating on good terms, and will co-parent their children in a dignified manner. Not everyone does. Wishing them the best in the future!

REPORT: Mila Kunis Pregnant with Ashton Kutcher’s Baby!

Looks like congratulations are in order! Mila Kunis is reportedly pregnant with her first child with boyfriend Ashton Kutcher!

This news comes almost a month after reports came out that the actress was engaged to Ashton.  Mila was pictured last month rocking a huge diamond ring while she was out shopping with her mom in L.A., confirming reports. She and Ashton, known for their stint together on That ’70s Show, first went public with their relationship in spring 2011.

This will be the first child for Ashton as well, who finalized his divorce from Demi Moore back in November.

According to E!, Mila was even recently spotted attending a prenatal yoga class in Hollywood. And just yesterday, the couple was seen on the Kiss Cam at the Pistons-Clippers game! See them smooching below!

Neither of them have officially made an announcement about this yet. If the news is true, and I really think it is, congrats to them and their families!

CELEB SPOTTING: Beyoncé Visits Anne Frank House in Amsterdam

Every place she goes on The Mrs. Carter World Tour, Beyoncé  makes sure that she takes time out to experience the culture of the city she’s touring in! Amsterdam was no different as she and husband Jay-Z visited the Anne Frank House,  hours after Bey’s performance at the city’s Ziggo Dome.

According to the museum’s Facebook page, they spent “more than an hour inside and very impressed by their visit to the hiding place of Anne Frank.” The museum also posted a shot of the singer writing a message in the guestbook.

Beyoncé, notoriously known for sharing her life through pics on Instagram, shared some shots on the social media site too!

So awesome! I love these pictures. Needless to say Anne Frank is a huge figure in world history, and it’s cool that Bey and Jay took some time out to visit. Hopefully, one day in my travels, I’ll get to go there too!

Madonna Releases Promo Video for MDNA Skin Care Line

Time to get pretty! Madonna has officially released a video promoting her MDNA skin care line!

In the black-and-white video, Madonna says, “Having good skin is important to me but so are other things.” She continues without much explanation about what the line actually has: “I’ve spent hours on it. Months on it. Years on it. MDNA. Transformation. Enigmatic. Substance. Connection. Revolution. Spirit. Intuition. Magic. Mystical. Ambition. Infinity. Immortal.”

The three-part skin care line created with MTG beauty company consists of a Chrome Clay Mask, Skin Rejuvinator, and The Serum. Too bad we’ll never see it in the States! Unfortunately for everyone, the line is only being sold in Japan! After all this?! You can still check out the video for MDNA below!

The video is a little weird, but I can’t say Madonna doesn’t look amazing in it! I don’t think it’s because of her MDNA line, but regardless, she looks HOT!

Keira Knightley Seduces in New Coco Mademoiselle Campaign

Keira Knightley is looking like a total goddess in the newest campaign video for Coco Mademoiselle!  In the 60-second clip, set to 60s song “She’s Not There,” by the Zombies,  Keira walks through the party in a white gown rocking a smoky eye look and loose curls, looking angelic yet seductive at the same time. A male suitor sees her and is captivated instantly. However, he never quite reaches her, until the next day, when he sees her driving a speed boat!

“The third film is very silver and quite cool,” the actress said in a press release. “But again, nobody can quite capture her; so she is kind of there, but she is sort of playing with them… And then she gets on a speed boat! What more can you ask for?” Keira became the face of Chanel back in 2007, and worked with director Joe Wright for the campaign (the two previously collaborated on Pride and PrejudiceAtonement, and Anna Karenina.) “Neither Joe nor I could ever have imagined that this collaboration would continue for so many years. Having this creative relationship with him is an incredible chance for me,” Keira continued. “We saw each other grow up, personally and professionally. And working with someone you know and who knows you just as well changes absolutely everything. We can create a story together more quickly.”

Check out the sultry campaign below!

Chris Pine Pleads Guilty to DUI in New Zealand

Uh oh, looks like international trouble for Chris Pine! The actor has pleaded guilty to a DUI over in New Zealand.

Chris was pulled over by police early March 1, telling them that he had four vodka drinks. He had been celebrating the end of filming Z for Zachariah with the cast and crew of the film, as well as his girlfriend, Iriz Bjork Johannesdottir. When he was pulled over, his blood-alcohol content was at 0.11 percent, above the 0.08 legal limit. He had a hearing on Monday, as his lawyer entered a guilty plea in Ashburton District Court.

As punishment, the actor had his driver’s license in the country suspended for six months and got a small fine of $93, which equals to be $79 is U.S. dollars.

Drinking and driving doesn’t mix people! Lucky for Chris, it wasn’t too bad of a legal issue. He’ll be back in Los Angeles soon. He’s not a celebrity whose name is always in the headlines for trouble, so hopefully nothing like this happens again!

Ashanti Talks New Album ‘BraveHeart’, Split with Nelly on The Huffington Post

For those Ashanti fans out there, her new album BraveHeart is FINALLY out in stores, after almost 6 years of waiting! The R&B singer dished to The Huffington Post on the new album, which features singles “I Got It” and “First Real Love”, as well as her breakup with rapper Nelly, and her future acting opportunities.

Check out the interview below!

How would you describe the meaning behind the album’s title, “BraveHeart”?

There’s a few things about it. The title kind of speaks for itself, just being brave and having heart in everything that you do in life. I feel that this album is my most vulnerable, my bravest album that I’ve spoken the most about personal experiences. My last album came out in 2008 and here we are in 2014, and I’ve grown, obviously. The music industry has changed so much. And people have seen me go through so many things in the public, whether it’s my personal life or my career, and I feel like a lot of answers [are] in this album.

Were there any difficulties adjusting to today’s R&B scene, in comparison to your last project?

Not so much difficult to adapt, but more so being brave in sticking to my roots and sticking to what my core fans love me for, in addition to understanding that things evolve. And it’s good to be creative and it’s good to try new things. Not totally abandoning where you came from musically, but kind of enhancing. So it’s kind of like giving the best of both worlds. Like showing your growth and showing your progression, but not necessarily abandoning what people love you for.

How much of an impact did your public relationship with Nelly affect your writing process?

I definitely feel like my situation has played a huge role in the records and how I felt. As far as dropping a ‘hot 16′ [song verse], I might have recorded them but they didn’t make the album. [Laughs] There is a record that I have called “Scars” that is weird, because [it's] talking about being scarred in a relationship, but it’s not a ballad. It’s a head nod record. So I think that was a great twist for me.

Aside from everyone that you worked with on this album, noticeably absent is your Murder Inc. family. Can fans expect a reunion of some sort in the near future?

Me and Ja [Rule] was in the studio not too long ago. And I was playing him some records … The thing about me and Ja is, our chemistry is undeniable. It doesn’t take a lot for us to get into the studio and come out with something crazy. So at this point we both are kind of like doing our own thing because we know we’re superior in what we can do together. But I think later on we can see a little collabo, reunion. [Laughs]

Last month Irv Gotti posted his thoughts, via his Instagram account, on his past idea of teaming Ja Rule, Jay-Z and DMX for an album. By chance, do you recall any of the conversations during that period?

Oh my God, that would have been phenomenal! I remember when were at a hotel and I came downstairs to the lobby and Jay and Irv were sitting at the table, and they were talking about putting that tour together. This was probably around 2003, 2004. And it was going to be Ja, Jay and X. And I was like, “Nah, I want to be on there, too.” [Laughs]

But I remember just the excitement of that possibly happening. And it’s unfortunate that it didn’t happen, but I think it would’ve been something monumental because all of them are just so super creative and their energy is amazing. That would’ve been something crazy! And I would’ve “Deebo’d” my way in. [Laughs]

In addition to your music career, you’ve also been busy making a name for yourself as an actress. Are you currently working on any new television or movie projects?

Absolutely. I’m more so into executive producing and doing things behind the scenes. But I have a couple of ideas about things I want to do. Obviously more film. TV has a lot of money in it right now … If you do it right and you’re with a great network and you have a good product … Because right now it’s all about being visual and being in millions of homes across the country to keep the visibility out there.

When you say television, are you referring to reality television, or something more scripted, similar to your past role on “Army Wives”?

If I had it my way, it would be all three [film, scripted TV and reality TV]. But in a way that I can control it. I’m not necessarily a candidate for a person to have a camera following me all around every day. But if it’s something that I could control what they see and what they don’t see, in certain aspects, then that’s different.

It’s crazy, because I was approached years ago to do a reality show and I was like, “WHAT!? Never!” But now, they’re coming out with these eight-figure deals, we may have to revisit that. [Laughs]

Deep down, I’m rooting for Ashanti! I want her to succeed, because I think she’s a talented singer and pretty good actress. She was at the top of the R&B/hip hop music scene when she first came out, but her star kind of faded. Hopefully, this album does well, and she’ll come back stronger than ever! (I secretly think she and Nelly are together again, too. If they’re not, they need to be!)

Lena Dunham Talks Love, Beauty, and Possibly Quitting Acting in Glamour

Lena Dunham snagged the cover of Glamour’s April issue, with some different revelations on her life! In her interview, the Girls actress and creator admitted that she may let acting go in the future, as well as opened up about her relationship with boyfriend Jack Antonoff, and her simple thoughts on beauty.

Here are some of the highlights from the interview!

On dating boyfriend Jack Antonoff right after the show premiered: “The dialogue around the show already existed, so it was sort of clear to him what the baggage of dating me was going to be. I remember talking with him on our first date and him being like, ‘God, all the articles about your nudity on the show are such bullsh*t.’ It’s funny, ’cause in some ways that’s the conversation we still have when I’m upset [about stuff I read].”

On acting in the future: “I don’t know if I’m going to want to act anymore. I’m always relieved on the days I don’t have to. I’d rather give parts to other women than be the woman having the parts.”

Source-Tom-MunroGlamour

On her artistic choices on the show: “I want you to feel like you are getting lost with these characters. So I write long scenes. TV feels the least likelife when it’s, like, two seconds here, then ‘meanwhile at this person’s house.’ I wanted to make a show that wasn’t as bright as other shows . . . I’ve always been incredibly attracted to pictures of my parents [the artists Laurie Simmons and Carroll Dunham] in the 1970s. That aged photograph palette seems to give an importance to their 20s. So I was like, I’d like to make something that shows my 20s through that beautiful soft-focus lens. Also, I get very fetishistic when I’m shooting the girls — especially Jemima.”

On how she feels about beauty: “I feel prettier with a naked face and ChapStick. But a good haircut makes a huge difference.”

Lena looks awesome in these pictures! I think she’s a good actress, and I hope she sticks with it, but it’s her decision. I’m sure she will keep creating beyond Girls, though!

Keyshia Cole Previews Steve Madden Shoe Collection

Keyshia Cole has developed a second shoe collection under Steve Madden for Spring 2014!

Last year, she released her first collection with the shoe brand, which was really successful. Now she’s developed another, and these shoes are HOT! They’re coming out just in time for the warm weather, and, ladies, you’re going to want to snag a pair of these!

The designs for the line are colorful and unique, and the line has pumps, gladiator sandals, and wedges in various colors.  The shoes are priced between $64.99-$139.99.

Good for Keyshia venturing into something other than singing. The shoes are definitely bold and caught my eye, so I might have to get a pair or two myself. I would love the yellow pumps with the zebra heel in red, if she has them. And she’s looking really good in these photos!  Check out a preview of the collection below!

Oprah Tells Lindsay Lohan to “Cut the Bull” In Reality Show Extended Promo

Oprah got Lindsay Lohan TOGETHER in the extended promo of Lindsay’s upcoming reality show, Lindsay, on OWN!

The clip gives an inside look into how difficult the actress was while filming her life after her stint in rehab.

“So we were supposed to start shooting at 12:30 and Lindsay is locked out of her apartment. Which means we might not start shooting for a couple of hours,” director Amy Rice says with a sigh after a number of Lindsay’s tearful scenes from the first trailer are shown. She then jumps on her cell phone and says, “She’s not letting us into her apartment.”

Oprah soon comes in to settle the fuss. “My truth is that I really do want you to win. I really do,” the talk-show host says. “If that isn’t what you want, I’m OK with that, you know, I will tell these guys to pack up and leave.”

“No, it’s not that I’m not ready to do that, I do want to,” Lindsay replies before Oprah lets her know upfront: “You need to cut the bulls–t then, you really do.”

Check out the extended sneak peek below!

Lindsay premieres on Sunday, March 9, at 10 p.m. on OWN. I will definitely be watching! I’m rooting for Lindsay, though I’m not exactly sure how a reality show is going to help her better her life. I hope she stays on the right track, though!

Will you be watching?

CELEB SPOTTING: Mom-to-Be Kerry Washington at ESSENCE Luncheon

Kerry Washington‘s pregnancy fashion is seriously on point! The actress was spotted rocking a blue silk dress from the Calvin Klein Collection to the Essence Black Women in Hollywood luncheon on Feb. 27 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Kerry looked fabulous as always, with her hair styled in bouncy curls and her face made up with smoky eye makeup and a pink lipstick. She completed the look with Jimmy Choo pumps and an Emm Kuo clutch.

Meanwhile, Gladiators all over (myself included!) were beyond excited that Scandal came back last night after its winter break! You can tell that the team is trying really, REALLY hard to cover up Kerry’s bump with her big coats and the way the camera was angled with every one of her scenes last night! Anywho, in celebration of one my favorite shows being back on, check out a Spanish parody of Scandal from Jimmy Kimmel Live, starring some of the cast! Very funny!

Da Brat Ordered to Pay $6.4 Million To Assault Victim

These celebrities need to think twice before they act out! Looks like rapper Da Brat is going to have to shell out a pretty hefty sum for an assault charge from 2007.

The rapper was charged with attacking former Atlanta Falcons cheerleader Shayla Stevens with a bottle inside an ATL nightclub back in 2007.  She served over 3 years in prison for the crime, but Shayla sued her in 2009.

The case was finally settled this week as a jury awarded Shayla $6.4 MILLION to cover her injuries and past and future loss of earnings!

Now I KNOW Da Brat doesn’t have that type of money! She’s a decent rapper, but her last full album was back in 2003! She’s been seen trying to make comebacks, but nothing substantial. Definitely not $6.4 million worth! So the real question is how in the world is this woman going to pay this money?!

The Arsenio Hall Show Renewed for a Second Season

Arsenio Hall got a really nice surprise on the set of The Arsenio Hall Show during Wednesday night’s episode! Turns out that CBS picked up a second season of his talk show…and Jay Leno came out to surprise him with the good news!

After sneaking up behind Arsenio, Jay told him and the audience  the news. Arsenio hugged him, saying “How come I don’t get my news first?!” Jay replied, “He’s more annoyed that I knew before he did!” Jay then joked, “Actually, in the second season, I’m going to be hosting. They didn’t tell you that part!”

Check out the surprise below!

“We are thrilled that Arsenio will be returning for a second season,” Joe DiSalvo, president of sales at CBS Television Distribution said in a statement. “We knew Arsenio had a built-in fan base, but he’s also reaching a new generation. This season, Arsenio has been the youngest late-night talk show on broadcast television and has given our station partners a real alternative for their late-night lineups.”

Arsenio also said in a statement, “Since 9/9/13, I’ve been waking up without an alarm clock. Producing and hosting my late-night talk show brings me great joy. I’m back where I belong! Thanks to my partners at CBS Television Distribution and Tribune.”

I’m really happy for Arsenio! Averaging 6.7 million views a week, the show has been doing very well, and has had a slew of great artists and other celebs come on. Arsenio’s naturally a good host, so it’ll be great to see another season. Hopefully there’s many more to come!
