CELEB SPOTTING: Jason Aldean stops by Grammys Pepsi Gifting Lounge

Jason Aldean was spotted at the Grammys Pepsi gifting lounge held at the Staples Center pre-Grammys on Saturday looking casual, cool and collect AND without a cowboy hat on!

And in case you were wondering if Aldean really does drink Pepsi, let’s just say he is a fan. In fact, before he was famous, Jason once delivered Pepsi to gas stations. Can you imagine Jason rocking one of those delivery-guy outfits?

At the Grammys last night, Aldean took the stage to perform his hit song “Don’t You Wanna Stay” with Kelly Clarkson. Check it out below!

Selena Gomez is single!

After three years together, Selena Gomez and The Scene have broken up. I know all you Beliebers out there were wanting other news. So sorry to disappoint. Selena IS sad though, you guys.

Selena Gomez and The Scene are dunzo. Gomez said, “My band and I are going our separate ways for a while. This year is all about films and acting and I want my band to play music wherever with whoever. We will be back but, it will be a good while. I love them and I love you guys.”

Via Instagram, Gomez also posted a memorable photo of the group saying, “I can’t express enough how grateful I am for this group. They have been with me since day one and I can’t believe it’s actually over. . .I could not have done any of this without you. Currently bawling my eyes out. I’ll miss you guys.”

The band, consisting of singer Selena Gomez, drummer Gregory Garman, guitarist Joey Clement and keyboard player Dane Gorrest released THREE albums since 2009.

Adele Covers Vogue: Talks Drinking, Grammys and Sex

Adele is the “it” girl for Vogue’s March 2012 issue and rightfully so! Girlfriend cleaned house at the Grammys ceremony last night winning SIX gold trophies.

Check out the amazing photos (that are unfortunately photoshopped wayyy too much) and highlights from the Vogue interview below.

ON HER “LOUD” PERSONALITY:

“I am quite loud and bolshie. I’m a big personality. I walk into a room, big and tall and loud.” Indeed. There is no doubt when Adele is in the building. The rule of thumb for protecting one’s vocal cords, she tells me, is: If people are more than an arm’s length away, you shouldn’t talk to them. “But I am like, Wah! Wah! Wah! It’s really bad.”

ON GIVING UP DRINKING LAST MAY:

“Don’t like drinking anymore. I think I got it out of my system. D’yaknowhaImean?”

ON HER VOCAL TROUBLES:

“I’ve been singing properly every day since I was about fifteen or sixteen and I have never had any problems with my voice, ever. I’ve had a sore throat here and there, had a cold and sung through it, but that day it just went while I was onstage in Paris during a radio show. It was literally like someone had pulled a curtain over it.” She flew to London the next morning to see her doctor and was diagnosed with acute laryngitis. After a couple weeks’ rest, she continued her European tour, came to America, and then her voice went again in May. “That was a hemorrhage… a burst blood vessel on my vocal cord. That healed, I did a tour, and then it happened again at my best friend’s wedding on October 1.”

ON GETTING SUPPORT THROUGH HER SURGERY FROM OTHER ARTISTS:

“John Mayer had it done at the same time as I did and he really helped me be chilled out about it. Roger Daltrey’s had loads of stuff done; Steven Tyler reached out; Elton John. Lots of artists have had problems with their voices, but you don’t know about it. And they are still singing incredibly well in their 50s and 60s.”

ON HER CELEBRITY STATUS:

“I hate the red carpet. I don’t feel insecure, I just feel like, Oh, I don’t want to do this. I literally get a stomach cramp. At the VMA’s last year I felt really out of my comfort zone because there were so many superstars there. But that’s been the case from day one. I never feel like, Oh, yeah, I should be here. And I was missing my best friend’s hen night. So I was a bit bitter that I wasn’t there, to be perfectly honest.”

ON HER BEST AND WORST QUALITIES AS A GIRLFRIEND:

“Oh, my God! love a bit of drama. That’s a bad thing. I can flip really quickly. I am not bipolar, but I go from ‘Oh, my God, I love you’ to ‘Get the fuck out of my house!’ really quickly. And I never sit there and talk about it. I give them the silent treatment. They’re like, ‘Tell me what I’ve done so I can say sorry!’ What else? It used to be that I loved a drink a bit too much. But I don’t drink no more. The good things: I am attentive. I will do anything for my man. I am a good cook. I’m funny. Always want to have sex.” She cracks up. “Well, most girls don’t!”

ON HER SIX GRAMMY NOMINATION:

“I burst into tears when I found out. And I would love, absolutely love, to win. This record is coming to an end, and that would be the final brick on it.”

Celine Dion: Whitney died from drugs, bad influences!

Celine Dion believes that drugs are what killed Whitney Houston. And from what we mentioned earlier, it could have been prescription pills that were the final dagger to Whitney’s life.

We all know that Whitney had a tough time with drugs and alcohol, but from the way things were looking, Houston’s life and career were on the up and up as she had finished filming the film Sparkle with Jordin Sparks that many thought would be key to Whit’s comeback.

This morning Celine spoke with Good Morning America via telephone and gave her opinion on Whit’s passing.

Dion said, “Whitney has been an amazing inspiration for me … It’s just really unfortunate that drugs, bad people or bad influence took over. It took over her dreams. It took over her love and motherhood. When you think about Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe and Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse, to get into drugs like that, for whatever reason. Is it because of the stress and bad influence? What happens when you have everything?”

True. I’ve often thought about this. What do you do when you have reached the top, when you’ve accomplished all you’ve wanted to accomplish? There is nothing more to aim and once you get to the top, the only way to go is down.

Celebrities React to Jennifer Hudson’s Whitney Houston Tribute at Grammys

Last night was a difficult one for Jennifer Hudson as she took the stage to perform a last minute tribute put together to honor the late, great Whitney Houston who died not even one day before the Grammys ceremony.

And while J-Hud is not Whitney (and surely nobody is), but I thought that Hudson did an amazing job belting out Whit’s hit “I Will Always Love You”. Check out what other celebrities said about the tribute on Twitter below.

Bobbi Kristina Found in Bathtub One Night Before Whitney’s Death

Now if this story doesn’t make you a tad creeped out, I am not sure what will. Apparently one day before Whitney Houston was found dead in her bathtub in her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton, her daughter Bobbi Kristina was found asleep in a bathtub at the same hotel. Ummm, yeah. She was, however, still breathing.

TMZ is reporting that

friends of Bobbi Kristina tried knocking on her door repeatedly Friday night … but she didn’t answer. We’re told they called security to get them to unlock the door and help them get Bobbi out of the tub.

Our sources say it happened on the same floor of the hotel where Whitney would be found dead the next day. We’re told the room Bobbi Kristina was in was booked under Whitney’s name.

Um, is there just a coincidence that this would happen? I mean seriously. I don’t even know what to say about this because it creeps me out so bad.

Our friends at Radaronline.com are also reporting that

since Houston’s death, Bobbi Kristina has been hospitalized twice in a 12-hour span at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

According to a source, “She tried to ease the pain of losing her mother by having a few alcoholic drinks. She was distraught, on the verge of a complete breakdown. Not knowing what to do, members of her mother’s entourage tried to calm her down with a sedative. The two were an unfortunate mix, and she ended up passing out.”

Are you effing kidding me? Who are these people of her mother’s entourage? Good gawd! Obviously not real bright. Alcohol and pills don’t mix, especially considering that could very possibly be the way that Whitney went out.

REPORT: Whitney Houston Cause of Death: Prescription Pills

TMZ is reporting that Whitney Houston’s family was told by LA County Coroner officers that Whitney died from a combination of Xanax and other prescription drugs MIXED with alcohol. Yes, a lethal drug cocktail. Apparently she did NOT die from drowning, despite other reports and according to TMZ. The officials told the fam that there was not enough water in Whit’s lungs to declare a death by drowning and that she may have died before her head was submerged in the water.

Also to clear up other rumors, according to TMZ, it was Whitney’s aunt Mary Jones who discovered the singer’s body in the bath tub not the bodyguard, the hairdresser or Ray-J. After discovering her in the tub, she pulled Whitney out and began giving her CPR.

We will not know for certain the true cause of death (at least on paper anyways) until the toxicology report comes out in about a month, but it seems more commonplace that prescription pills are more of an issue for celebrities these days. Is it because they are legal and easily accessible? Sure the doctors can write the prescriptions, but they can’t control how many pills the patient takes!

We’ll have to wait and see for certain what the toxicology report says, but so far it’s not looking like natural causes.

Rihanna and Chris Brown Back Together?

Are Rihanna and Chris Brown back together? We have been suspecting this for months now and perhaps we are just looking too much into what we are thinking are subliminal tweets between Brown and Ri. But more and more information (rumors?) keeps coming out about these two and it makes me wonder.

It was on her Twitter page that Ri posted the following tweet, “#1LOVE RT @TheNoteboook: Feelings that come back are feelings that never truly went away” Seriously. What else could this be about? Just a love for this particular quote from the most romantic movie ever? Eye roll. Come on!

So Hollywood Life is reporting that Ri and Breezy got pretty cozy backstage during Grammy rehearsals. Yeah, like FOUR hours worth!

An alleged insider told the website that Rihanna, 23, and Chris, 22, just spent four hours behind closed doors in a dressing room at Los Angeles’ Staples Center, the home of Sunday’s awards show. “They care about each other and they do talk a lot, but they feel like they have to hide their feelings for each other,” the source reported.

“Rihanna knows everyone will judge her, and even her family and closest friends do not want them to be back together,” the insider continued. “Rihanna is afraid if she is seen with Chris it will have a negative impact on her career.” Brown, who notoriously beat his then-girlfriend on the eve of the 2009 Grammy Awards, has just been ordered by a judge to remain on supervised probation as mandated in his sentencing for the assault.

Well add in the fact that these two just happen to be hanging out at the same places at the same time. The same evening of the Grammy rehearsals, Ri and Chris were spotted leaving the SAME club.

Hmmm. So what do you think? Will these two get back together? And what about Brown’s hanger-on girlfriend aspiring model Karrueche Tran?

Whitney Houston’s Last Performance video

Whitney Houston’s final performance just so happened to take place a couple of night’s ago at the Kelly Price & Friends pre-Grammy celebration. Price and Houston sang a duet of “Yes, Jesus Loves Me” and a fan caught it on tape.

It is obvious that Whitney had more talent than most singers these days but this performance doesn’t exactly showcase the voice we all knew and loved.

Despite the hoarseness of her voice and the sweat dripping from her brow, Kelly Price admits that no hard partying was going on.

Price said, “Things people want to allude to are not what I saw. There was no craziness going on, absolutely none of it. It was a great musical event. And honestly, I’m saying it because her daughter was there with her, my two children were there with me. It was an atmosphere that lent itself to being okay for our kids to be there. So that’s what was going on. She came down, and we had a ball like we always do,” Price said. “We laughed, danced, sang and cried and talked about the stuff that we talk about – the kids, life outside of the business. It was good, she was good. It was great, she had a good time, she was happy and that was all night long.”
