Sara Gilbert and Linda Perry Are Married

Gotta say congrats to another celebrity couple for tying the knot! Sara Gilbert and songwriter Linda Perry were married Sunday, March 30! Sara’s rep confirmed the happy news to Us Weekly.

While neither Sara nor Linda have spoken out yet, actress Juliette Lewis shared her well wishes to the couple before the ceremony, tweeting, “Holiday by Madonna playin, sun is beaming,gettin ready 4 the wedding of 1of my fave couples in the universe @RealLindaPerry @THEsaragilbert.”

Sara first revealed her engagement news to her fellow cohosts on The Talk last April. “It’s like the most amazing proposal ever,” she said about Linda’s romantic musical picnic proposal. “I’m sitting there listening and I’m kind of daydreaming and I’m thinking like, ‘If I ever proposed to her this would be an amazing way to do it.’ The people picnicking next to us pull out string instruments from under the blanket, walk over and they start playing [The Cure's] Lovesong,” she said.

Talk about a perfect proposal! With elaborate planning like that, I’m sure the wedding was even more beautiful. Congrats to Sara, Linda, and their families. Wishing them much happiness in the years to come!

CELEB SPOTTING: Nas Celebrates ‘Illmatic’ 20th Anniversary at the Kennedy Center

Talk about a way to celebrate! Nas took the mic at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. for a two-night concert celebrating the 20th anniversary of his classic Illmatic album!

The concerts were a part of the Kennedy Center’s One Mic: Hip Hop Culture Worldwide festival that’s being hosted in the nation’s capital from March 25-April 13. After performing some of his classic hits with the National Symphony Orchestra, the rapper was spotted at the Hennessy V.S after party at the KC Cafe, with the media and members of the audiences, as well as the Symphony conductor, Christoph Eschenbach. He hopped on the mic and told the conductor he thought he would be “stuffy”, but the NSO were on point, even after only one day of practice!

Check out some of the photos for the event, and check out Nas performing his hit song “I Can” below!

Bradley Cooper Got Dumped By Suki Waterhouse Because He was Caught Sexting An EX?!!!

Apparently Bradley Cooper still has it bad for ex girlfriend Renee Zellweger. Her face may have changed, but her heart hasn’t and Bradley is not into Suki Waterhouse as he used to be. Suki saw that and bam, dumped! According to reports, 21-year old Waterhouse found out that Cooper was having intimate phone chats with Renee and tried to ban her man from contacting her.

A source told the National Enquirer that “Suki was getting fed up with Bradley vanishing for hours at a time to talk to Renee. Besides that, he was opening up to Renee about his family, his health and even his sobriety. Suki felt Bradley should be confiding in her about those things.”

Renee and Bradley met while filming Case 39 in 2006 and they started dating in 2009. They split in March 2011, but have remained tight even though Renee is seeing musician Doyle Bramhall ii, 45.

A source close to Renee confirmed that, “Yes, Renee is talking to Bradley. She’s close to signing a movie deal with his pal Daniel Craig and she’s begged Bradley to put in a good word for her.”

It sounds as if Bradley Cooper and Renee may not have totally gotten over each other.

Chelsea Handler Will End Chelsea Lately After Eight Years

Chelsea Handler is moving on to greener pastures. After eight years on the E! network, she has announced through her manager, Irving Azoff, her popular late night show Chelsea Lately, will come to an end.

Irving told The Hollywood Reporter that after Chelsea’s contract is up at the end of this year, she will leave the show and E! behind. “Chelsea intends to leave when her contract expires,” he said. “She hired me to figure out her life after E! We have at least seven suitors and many ideas.”

Chelsea has had no problems expressing her frustrations with the E! network, calling it “a sad, sad place to live,” on The Howard Stern Show and adding, “They don’t know what they’re doing. They have no ideas. It’s a failure.”

“Chelsea has nine months left on her contract, and E! will not comment on the future of Chelsea Lately at this time,” an E! spokesperson said to Us Weekly.

I’m sure this won’t be the end of Chelsea Handler. I think she’s just over working with E! and wants out. I’m sure another network will pick her up, especially with her ratings. Her personality is too big to just fizzle out now. I wish her the best of luck with the transition!

Lady Gaga Says Boyfriend Taylor Kinney Wears The Pants In Their Relationship

taylor-kinney

Lady Gaga and her man Taylor Kinney are still going strong. And while you may think that Lady Gaga completely has her man on a ball and chain, you better think again. She seems as if she has hardcore control on stage and when she’s working the streets in her eccentric ensembles, but believe it or not when she’s at home…her man is in charge.

During an interview on Sirius XM’s The Morning Mash Up on Monday, March 24th Gaga admitted that she is submissive to boyfriend Taylor Kinney.

She gushed, “Yes, actually. He’s totally in charge. I mean, when I am home, I am like, shoes are off, I’m making him dinner. He has a job, too, and he is really busy! I’m in charge all day long, the last thing I want to do is tell him what to do. It’s not good for relationships to tell men what to do.”

And whatever it is she is doing must be working because these two have been dating since they first met on the set of her 2011 “You and I” music video

During an interview on the Ellen Degeneres Show on November 25th, Gaga said, “We were in the middle of this scene and I remember that he kissed me and it wasn’t scripted for him to kiss me. I was sort of like was um, you know, was that real or was that fake? He didn’t really say anything and that was fine by me and we kept filming.”

She went on to add that her man isn’t as “normal” as you may think. She said, “He is extremely strange, actually, and we complement each other’s weirdness. And you know, at the end of the day he’s my best friend. And having your lover be your best friend, I mean, it’s the best thing ever.”

Well, glad she found someone just as weird as her!

Future Talks Proposing To Ciara, Wedding Plans And Rumors That Beyonce Stole “Drunk In Love”

2013 MTV Video Music Awards - Red Carpet

Future was recently on the Wendy Williams show and dished on some pretty sweet topics. He talked about proposing to Ciara, wedding plans and rumors that Beyonce stole “Drunk In Love” from HIM! Check out the highlights from the interview below.

On why he proposed to Ciara:

For me, I believe it just gave me balance. It’s giving me balance. With a busy career, you’re doing so much, you just focus more on your career. You don’t have to keep chasing girls, chasing different women.

On their wedding plans:

The wedding plans are going great. I’ma let her handle the wedding. I’m doing my album. The album come out April 22nd. So she’s coordinating that. She’s coordinating it very well. She’s doing a great job at that. I’m just approving of everything.

On rumors Beyoncé stole “Drunk In Love” from him:

I demoed the song with the producer [Detail]. I demoed it first for her [Beyoncé] to listen to it. I guess she had done the record and was saving the record. I had done another version, ‘Good Morning’ because we didn’t know when she was going to put the album out or whatever. She put it out in December after I was supposed to put my album out in November. It just pushed my song to the side. It’s not on the album because towards the first beginning of the song is the same melody. A little bit of confusion.

Lindsay Lohan Talks Rehab, Paparazzi, Oprah And Her Breakup With Wilmer Valderrama

lindsay

Actress (?) LINDSAY LOHAN makes an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Monday, March 31st. Lindsay sheds some light on her most recent stint in rehab, about the paparazzi not following her anymore, and about her love life. Plus, Lindsay shares with Ellen what she did after her breakup with Wilmer Valderrama, as well as her relationship with Oprah.

Check out the highlights from the interview below:

ON GOING TO REHAB:

Ellen: Did that give you more pressure…because you’ve been in rehab a bunch. Right? Like six times. Is that right? Something like that. So does this because there’s cameras following you is that what helped you I think be healthy. You said you were healthier then you’ve ever been. Do you think that gave you pressure to be healthier or?

Lindsay: No, I think that this was the first time that I was able to you know, when I went to treatment this time, when I went to Cliffside, I really wanted a moment for myself and I learned a lot of different tools and things that I didn’t in the past. In the past a lot of it people don’t know this, but I was sent to rehab to avoid you know, them trying to put me in jail. So it wasn’t something that I necessarily wanted or was ready for. It was something that it was kind of just going with the motions. And this was the first time where I went to Shawn Holley, my lawyer, and said look I need some time. I need to figure something out. And it was through kind of you know meditation and learning different things that and just growing up as well and being like I’m tired and I want to be working and all these other girls are doing this and I’ve been doing this my whole life…and maybe, you know, that’s what makes me happy. So I’m just going to do what I have to do to get there again.

ON PAPARAZZI AND LIVING IN NEW YORK:

Lindsay: By moving to New York I can walk on the street and be a human being. Like I can be normal…

Ellen: Yea but you have paparazzi constantly.

Lindsay: No, I don’t.

Lindsay: No I don’t.

Ellen: Oh, they stopped?

Lindsay: Not at all.

Ellen: It was crazy though.

Lindsay: I’ve been in in LA for two weeks and thank god I’m leaving tomorrow because I’m saying this now, but they have not bothered me at all. It’s totally different now. It’s strange. I also don’t put myself in the same situations. You know, there is nothing left for me in going out to a certain place if I know what it’s going to result in. It’s just not worth it to me.


ON DATING:

Ellen: And so are you dating anyone now?

Lindsay: No.

Ellen: And I heard you were on some kind of dating website like Tinder or something?

Lindsay: You know what is so funny, my brother went on my Instagram and did that.

Ellen: He put you on Tinder?

Lindsay: He did it. Ya on my Instagram. He has a girlfriend of like seven years. I was like isn’t Nina going to get mad at you. I’ve never been on Tinder. So yesterday when I was talking to someone that works here they were like so I hear that you’re on Tinder. I was like I don’t even know how to get on it.

Ellen: Would you want to do that?

Lindsay: No. I’m ok with just taking care of me.

Ellen: Ok. Are you nervous about people meeting you for the wrong reasons? It would be hard to meet guys and then you have to be very selective for so many reasons. Like they’re not a good influence or they want to be with you and not for attention.

Lindsay: That sounds very exhausting.

Ellen: Well it is. Think about it.

Lindsay: I just like want to work and take care of me right now. I don’t really…That’s not even a thought.

Ellen: Are you working?

Lindsay: Yea, I’m starting a movie in May with Lionsgate and two great producers.

Ellen: Good.

ON HER MUSIC CAREER AND HER BREAK UP WITH WILMER VALDERRAMA:

Ellen: I don’t remember you actually ever singing. Did you sing longer than just on my show?

Lindsay: That’s great. That’s probably why I’m not singing right now.

Ellen: But, seriously. Did you sing for a while and I just didn’t know that?

Lindsay: I didn’t really do much promotion for it. I love music. Music is a huge part of my life just in general. Even when I’m on set like I’ll listen to songs that kind of like help the character in the scene and gets me into…

Ellen: Right.

Lindsay: But, I was really nervous that day I remember.

Ellen: Really? You came off really good.

Lindsay: That was a really emotional song. It was like about my dad…no I’d just broken up with someone.

Ellen: Who?

Lindsay: Well…

Ellen: Do you remember who? No?

Lindsay: Apparently there’s a list of many guys.

Ellen: I know. I have a list of people. I hear there’s a list going around of all.

Lindsay: It was Wilmer actually.

Ellen: It was what?

Lindsay: It was Wilmer Valderrama.

Ellen: It was Wilmer?

Lindsay: Ya.

Ellen: And did it break your heart?

Lindsay: I was really upset. Ya and that song I had written like the day after and we were still living together. I sang it in his house. Tortured him just recording the song so loud in his house.

Ellen: Wow. That’s amazing.

Lindsay: And I was filming Herbie at the same time. That was…there was a lot going on.

Ellen: Well, you’ve always had a lot going on.

ON HER RELATIONSHIP WITH OPRAH:

Ellen: How does Oprah feel about this and do you talk to her often?

Lindsay: I speak to her almost everyday and she’s just…she’s been so amazing to me. Just, you know, for everything even before the show was coming out I was getting really panicked cause I hadn’t really heard my name like anywhere in so long. And I would turn on the TV and it was right after the Oscars, so I thought I’d have like a minute like I thought it would kind of like distract from the show which is probably not a thing they would want to hear from the network.

Ellen: Right.

Lindsay: But then I just kept hearing my name and I started getting really like panicked about it and I just called her and she was just talking me through it and everything and she got me really into meditation. I mean that…she’s one of the reasons why that’s such a big part of my life. She’s just been a really strong guiding light and force to me as a friend and someone that I admire.

Ellen: I’m glad. I’m glad that she came into your life and I’m glad you’re listening to her cause she does have good advice.

Lindsay: Ya.

Beyoncé Gets Emotional During Final Night of The Mrs Carter Show

Mrs. Carter’s run has come to an end for now. Beyoncé and her team said goodbye to the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour in Lisbon, Portugal, on March 27. The tour is the highest selling tour of Bey’s career, with her grossing over $200 million dollars!

The singer got a little choked up at the show in front of her fans, expressing her feelings about her accomplishments over the past year:

If y’all didn’t know, tonight makes 132 shows. Tonight is the last show of the Mrs. Carter Show. We started a year ago. I wanna say this has been such a journey. In the past year, we’ve been through so much together, the Super Bowl, shooting the videos, all of these shows.

When I first started the tour, my baby was not even walking. I just want you to know that I am so lucky. I’m giving ya’ll the ugly cry. Thank you for allowing me to have a career, and when I fall, you lift me up. And when I’m hungry, you feed me. And I just want to give you my light.

Check out Bey tearing up as she closes out the show with “XO” below!

Now, I have to admit, I LOVE Bey, but I’m a little salty at her that she’s not coming back to the U.S. to perform the songs off the new album. I saw her first U.S. leg of the show last summer before the album dropped. It was for the first time, so I was excited regardless. However, it would’ve been great to see the new songs too. Now, granted, a lot of us have already seen the performances on YouTube by zealous fans filming on their cameras with shaky hands. That’s no where near the same as season this woman live! So I’m a little upset as a stan, but I understand that after 132 shows, she needs time to relax. I’ll catch her again the next go round. UNLESS she decides to randomly pop up with another tour announcement later on this year like she did with the album (Maybe a Mr. and Mrs. Carter Show…!). It might sound like wishful thinking, but, hey, I honestly thought after a long time of hope that the album wasn’t coming until later this year, and look! Keep hope alive people!

Zac Efron Saved his Bodyguard’s Life

If you think that Zac Efron was just auditioning for his own version of Fight Club, you are sadly mistaken- because if not for Zac great harm could’ve come to his bodyguard. At least, that’s what his bodyguard is saying. Yes, Zac Efron saved his bodyguard’s life.

Is it just me, or is it supposed to be the other way around? Or is Zac Efron also a bodyguard? And if so, can I hire him?

If you didn’t hear, Zac and his bodyguard were involved in a fight in LA- on Skid Row no less- with some “transients.”

TMZ first broke the story which went a little something like this: Cops spotted Zac and his bodyguard in a full blown fight with at least 3 other people while out on patrol under the Harbor Freeway.

Zac claimed that they’d run out of gas and were waiting for a tow truck and for whatever reason Zac threw out a (glass) bottle of some kind that consequently smashed on the ground (as one would expect).

It was at this point that (according to Zac) the transients assumed the thrown bottle was directed at them and confronted/attacked the bodyguard. It wasn’t looking good, but Zac came to the rescue and promptly got smacked in the face- a hit that he described as “the hardest I’ve ever been hit in my life.”

A source told TMZ that Zac was obviously intoxicated.

Now, the bodyguard is talking to TMZ, and while the stories are mostly the same, he claims that the bottle throwing incident isn’t what prompted the confrontation, but was instead in response to the bodyguard being attacked. You see- Zac threw the bottle and subsequently saved his bodyguard’s life… so says the bodyguard.

For the record: no arrests were made in the altercation because it was “mutual combat”…

Dear Zac Efron- I’m hiring.

The Art Of Elysium Develops L’Wren Scott Designer Award

In memoriam. The Art of Elysium, an organization that brings the love and beauty of the arts to hospitalized kids, has created an award in honor of late designer L’Wren Scott.

The Art of Elysium also honors a child by the name of Amber, who participated in the organization’s fashion workshops and had a brain tumor. The award, officially known as the L’Wren Scott Amber Award, will honor upcoming fashion designers.

L’Wren sadly committed suicide on March 17. According to various reports, her will left her $8 million Manhattan condo and her other personal possessions to her boyfriend, Rolling Stones Mick Jagger. He and her family are reportedly splitting her ashes. 

It was very nice of the Art of Elysium to create this award in both L’Wren and Amber’s honor. No word on when the first award will be given (it’s probably much too soon to consider that). However, hopefully it brings to light more emerging designers, and gives them their chance to shine in the fashion industry. Prayers and thoughts continue to go to L’Wren’s loved ones.

Scarlett Johansson Talks Double Standards For Men, Family and Making That Money!

scarjo

Newly announced pregnant mama-to-be Scarlett Johansson covers WSJ magazine and well..she is glowing! I’ll give her that! In the magazine, ScarJo’s interview is all about family, double standards for men and why she decided to take roles in big blockbusters.

On wanting a family and a career: “It seems so stressful to not be able to spend time with your family because you’re constantly chasing the tail of your own success. There must exist a world in which I can balance those things, be able to raise a family and still make a film a year, or work on my own, develop things, do theatre. I want to be able to have it all. Selfishly.”

On double standards for men: “With [male actors] it just doesn’t happen that way. You can be every woman’s fantasy, and nobody thinks twice about the fact that you have eight kids or whatever.”

On taking roles in big blockbusters: “I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it. I wanted to stretch myself physically, out of my comfort zone, and still succeed. I’m probably like most actors. We have huge egos, and you want to know you can be successful, no matter what. I don’t to be pigeonholed in one genre or budget or whatever.”

In other words, it’s all about the money! And hey, I don’t blame her. Get it, girl!

Kanye West Set To Call Off Wedding Because Kim Had Sparks With Chris Brown?

chrisbrown

We all know Kanye West can be a diva in his own right and I can totally see him freaking out over anyone his wife-to-be Kim Kardashian has been with. Well apparently there is a rumor going around that Kim once had stars in her eyes for bad boy Chris Brown.

Radaronline.com is reporting that Yeezy

is “so upset he might even consider calling off the wedding if she ever speaks to Brown again, according to one source!

“Even though the encounter between Kim and Chris happened long before Kanye came on the scene, being Kanye, he’s still intensely jealous,” a Kardashian insider told Radar.

West was shocked to learn that “Kim and Chris, both unattached at the time, met up to talk about promotional stuff and hear what he had in mind in terms of merchandising and licensing for his new record.

“There were definite sparks, but she insisted to Kanye that nothing happened between them.

“That hasn’t stopped Kanye from having a major jealous meltdown,” the source added.

Well that certainly doesn’t mean that Kim gave it up to Brown. But we all know how Kim is and how she operates so anything is possible. So who knows what really happened! The truth of the matter is, the past is the past and now that she has a solid bank account because of her association with West, she’s good. Sad part is, if West is freaking out now about this, this marriage isn’t going to last and it hasn’t even happened yet!

On a lighter note, can you imagine a Breezy, West, Kardashian love triangle?!! You know that would NOT end well.

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!
