OOP: Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth Call Off Engagement

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have reportedly called off their engagement.

Rumors that the 20-year-old actress and the 23-year-old Hunger Games actor had split were swirling since the beginning of the month.

“Miley and Liam are done; it’s over. She likes to party really hard and can be pretty wild. It became a problem for him,” a source shared with Page Six.

Another source added, “They have broken up before, and are broken up again now. There was drama because she suspected he had a wandering eye. And she recently tweeted a denial that he cheated.”


Stark Sands on his role in the new Broadway musical "Kinky Boots"

Stark Sands received a Tony nomination for his Broadway debut as a young soldier in the World War I drama Journey’s End. He went on to star opposite Anne Hathaway in the Public Theater’s Twelfth Night before playing another damaged soldier on Broadway in the Green Day rock musical American Idiot. Now, Stark is back on the boards as Charlie Price, a shoe factory heir in need of serious help in the new musical Kinky Boots. Below, Sands talks to about why the show is so much more than audiences may expect, choosing American Idiot over Bonnie & Clyde and his fantastic co-stars, from Anne Hathway to Billy Porter.

Why did you want to be part of "Kinky Boots?"
When Jerry Mitchell calls you up and says, “Hey, you want to play the lead in my Broadway musical that Harvey Fierstein and Cyndi Lauper are writing?” you don’t really think about it. You just say yes.

BBC: Thee Woman

Cumberbatch: We'd love to have Lara Pulver back

She's the only woman to have turned Sherlock's head, or challenged his intellect, so perhaps it's no surprise that the detective – or at least the star who plays him – would welcome a return for dominatrix Irene Adler, aka actress Lara Pulver.

Benedict Cumberbatch says having Pulver back on the show "would be lovely", adding "she's fantastic to work with. She was wonderful.

"She was terrific fun, she was so brilliant in it," Cumberbatch told at the South Bank Show Awards yesterday, "and we'd love to have her back."

Pulver starred in just one episode of Sherlock – series two opener A Scandal in Belgravia – but immediately captured the imagination of viewers with a combination of her whip-smart intellect, S&M styling and a now notorious nude scene.

So could Adler be back for series three this autumn? "I don't know," said Cumberbatch. "Maybe not in this series but she's a great strong character, even though she only appeared once."

Cumberbatch hinted that fans were likely to meet some of Sherlock Holmes's other formidable nemeses before Adler was brought back, saying: "There are quite a few other people as well to feature that haven't been yet."

But even if Adler does not appear in the upcoming series, Cumberbatch’s announcement yesterday that Sherlock will return for a fourth run, leaves the door open for her.

Pulver herself has made no secret of the fact that she would be interested in reprising her role.

“It would be an absolute pleasure,” she said in January, citing her chemistry with Cumberbatch as one of the main attractions.

“We have a lovely chemistry and a lovely a rapport and a relationship where, we might not see each other for a few months, and then we get back together and it’s just like old friends,” she said.


I'd love to have her back too -- but can we let Steve Thompson or Mark Gatiss write it, maybe?

Iman, David Bowie's wife, drops strong hint that there may be a tour

 photo iman-and-dav.jpg

"David Bowie's wife Iman has hinted that the legendary singer could tour again off the back of his new album 'The Next Day'. 

His spouse, with whom he has 12-year-old daughter Alexandria, let slip that Bowie's family won't be able to join him on the road because of their daughter's schooling in New York.

Iman told Grazia magazine:
We have a 12 year old in school, so we are stuck, we can't travel. Our schedule is around her, so I don't know. We'll have to go visit him, but we won't be on tour with him because she's in school.

Her comments are the strongest yet that the singer may hit the road. They come after Bowie's guitarist Gerry Leonard recently said that the odds of Bowie ever touring again are "50-50". He added: "A couple of times, when we played back one of the more kick-ass tunes from the new record, he'd be like, 'This would be great live!' Of course, everyone was like, 'What? Did he just say that?' But other times he'd just roll his eyes if someone brought up playing live." 

This came after the singer's producer Tony Visconti ruled out live shows to promote the veteran pop superstar's new album. He told NME in January: "He’s fairly adamant he’s never gonna perform live again… One of the guys would say, 'Boy, how are we gonna do all this live?' and David said, 'We’re not'. He made a point of saying that all the time."

Bowie, meanwhile is on course to score his first Number One Album in 20 years this weekend with 'The Next Day'. Check back on NME.COM this Sunday (March 17) to find out if he's topped the official UK albums chart."

MAKE UP POST: OK! Magazine "reviews" Khroma Beauty.

When the Kardashian ladies started working on their makeup line during their reality TV show, I was more giddy than a girl oohing and ahhing over her teenage celebrity crush—my crushes were Orlando Bloom and Daniel Radcliffe, if you wanted to know.

It was almost as if I had hired myself as their volunteer beauty outreach consultant. I told like a thousand people about their new business venture. The phrase "Did you know that the Kardashians are making a makeup line?" was the new way for me to start a conversation.

As thrilled as I was that this new label was going to hit store shelves, I had never gotten around to trying their beauty collection

That all changed today when I tried out the two magnificent products above. The Khroma Beauty k24 Primer pretty much does what it says in the name. The "24" is put in the name to represent the shiny effects of a piece of 24-karat gold. When I put this on my skin, I glittered like Robert Pattinson did in Twilight—total keeper!

The Khroma Beauty Joystick Lipstick also made my day. I've been searching for a nude lipstick for ages and am always asking my beauty-obsessed friends what their favorite brand is. I was thrilled with this result of this product. Plus, I do have a thing for lipstick.

Ok! Magazine

Have you tried Khroma Beauty, ONTD? How awful is it?

What do hate groups think about Jennifer Lawrence?

Have you ever met anyone who doesn't like Jennifer Lawrence? No? Me either. Even if someone doesn't know who she is, you can just show them that clip of her after the Oscars, or that one of her getting freaked out by Jack Nicholson, and they will become an instant lifelong megafan.

But in the interest of presenting a fair and balanced argument, I decided to try and find some people who hate her. And who hates more shit than members of hate groups? They have the word "hate" right there in their description.
I called up a few to see what their feelings were on J-Lawr.

Teen Titans Go! Will Premiere this April


It's been known for some time that the Teen Titans would be returning to Cartoon Network this year in the network's DC Nation programming block, but we've just received word that Teen Titans Go! will premiere this April. Read the full press release below.

The Teen Titans are returning to Cartoon Network with all-new comedic adventures, and this time they’re giving viewers a look at what life is really like as a teen superhero… once the cape comes off. The half-hour animated series, Teen Titans Go! premieres on Tuesday, April 23, at 7:30pm (ET/PT) and will be rebroadcast during the DC Nation block on Saturday mornings at 10:30am (ET/PT) beginning April 27.

The character-driven comedy series focuses on the funny that happens in between saving the world and living together as teenagers without adult supervision. The comedic mayhem of the animated series is punctuated by pranks and the occasional need to fight crime, but it will also deal with the everyday issues of adolescence. With epic staring contests to decide who does the laundry, a series of quests and battles to construct the perfect sandwich or fighting crime in Jump City, one thing is for sure, these Titans will always be ready for an adventure inside the house and out.

The principal voice cast from the original Teen Titans series, based on DC Comics characters, will reprise their roles in Teen Titans Go!, with Scott Menville as the voice of Robin, the slightly power-mad perfectionist and leader of the Teen Titans. Hynden Walch voices Starfire, an alien struggling to fit in; Tara Strong voices Raven, the sardonic, deadpan demon girl; Greg Cipes returns as the slightly dim but always loveable loafer, Beast Boy; and Khary Payton provides the voice of Cyborg, a laidback kid who is half teen, half robot.

The fan-favorite theme song from the original Teen Titans will also be making its return to television, with an updated remix from Mix Master Mike of the Beastie Boys.

Teen Titans Go! joins a strong Tuesday night block of programming on Cartoon Network which also includes Johnny Test (7:00pm ET/PT) and The Looney Tunes Show (8:00pm ET/PT). Teen Titans Go! can be seen again on Saturday mornings during the DC Nation block alongside Beware The Batman, which will premiere this summer. Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice Invasion will end their run on March 16.

Teen Titans Go! is produced by Warner Bros. Animation with Sam Register (MAD, Teen Titans, Batman: The Brave and The Bold) serving as executive producer with Michael Jelenic (ThunderCats) and Aaron Horvath (MAD) as producers.

Selena Gomez’s “Rule The World”: Hear The Dance-Pop Leak, Which Is Not A Single


A new tune from the great Selena Gomez is always a good thing, although this one isn’t an official single — note how there’s no word from Camp Selena or Hollywood Records about it so far, which indicates pretty clearly that the release wasn’t planned — but hey! No matter!

The song is out there now, and it’s called “Rule the World,” and while it’s neither a Take That cover nor is it an announcement of her intentions to rule the world as the new Pope (topical!), it is an electrifying dance-pop banger with a monolithically great chorus and a storming, anthemic beat, plus a big house break. Cool! Great!

After all, really, what more could you ask for from a Selena Gomez song than that? Not much. Still, our impulse is that her official lead single — now titled “Come and Get It” — might even blow this one out of the water. Just a guess. Listen below

Iron Man 3: Pepper Won't Ever Just Be a Damsel in Distress + more on The Mandarin

Robert Downey Jr on Pepper:

“How do we have it so she’s not going [whining], ‘Tony!’ and I’m going [growling], ‘Where’s Pepper?’… That’s the other thing that I have been pushing for. She’s in great shape, she’s really game. There’s all these genre movies and you have these capable women and they’re like, ‘Oh my god, some action is happening, I better step away or get caught in something over here.’ It’s like, ‘Really, is that where we’re at in the 21st century?’”

He also mentioned he was the one who insisted on having Gwyneth Paltrow in The Avengers: ”I was like, ‘You can’t just pretend that I got in a fight with Rhodey and Pepper’s out of town.’ They said, ‘You can’t have both of them,’ so I said, ‘All right, I need Pepper.’”

Kandi Burruss Sues Kim Zolciak Over Don’t Be Tardy For The Party!


I guess this is one bridge Kim Zolciak-Biermann has officially burned!

Years after the release of Don't Be Tardy For The Party (which also spawned the name of Kim's two spinoffs), the original writer of the song Kandi Burruss is suing Kim for nonpayment!

Kandi was shown writing the song on Real Housewives of Atlanta. She also produced the song for Kim. Several times she tried to recoup monies owed to her for both royalties and production/writing fees. Kim made a ton of excuses and then used the money to buy wigs, cigs, and other Kim necessities, like self-tanner and booze.

Courthouse News reports that Kandi filed a suit in federal court claiming Kim "illegally licensed and distributed a song" Kandi wrote with co-plaintiff Rodney Richard! The song was also removed from iTunes because of legal issues; it has since been reinstated with new album artwork.

Uh-oh! Kim's been bragging about how many millions her new mansion is worth; well good ol' Wigs n Cigs better have money where her mouth is, cause lord knows – Kim's mouth often writes checks that her husband bank can't cash.

The RHOA reunion is currently taping – both Kandi and Kim are attending – so this should be veeeeeerrreee interesting! In addition to this Kim is also battling it out in court with her parents!


Blind Item

She’s a mega-star who started young and seemed to not be affected by the child star curse. Seemed to be. But eventually, that sh-t will find you, even on a delay.

It’s the mother. Though the parents were previously thought to be harmless... the mother now appears to be going full Dina Lohan. The mother has been hitting her up for cash for a while now, the better part of a year. To support her own projects, resurrect her own failed dreams, and her new relationship -- so essentially she’s bankrolling her ma’s midlife crisis. The daughter can afford it, certainly, and if it was just the money, it wouldn’t be getting out, but now she’s being asked by her mother to leverage her own fame and influence for industry contacts and connections. Since she can’t get a meeting on her own, she’s been namechecking her daughter to get in the door, and when that doesn’t work, she’s been pressuring her daughter to step in on her behalf, jeopardising her daughter’s reputation. No matter how hot you are, you don’t want to be known as the girl with That Mother. It’s becoming a concern for the daughter’s management team, as they worry that her ma’s increasingly aggressive famewhoring will undo their own moves in advancing the young star’s career. As you can imagine, it’s a delicate, uncomfortable situation. She is loyal and protective to and of her family. But she cannot deny that her mother may be compromising her professionally and is torn about whether or not to indulge her mother’s demands or look out for herself instead. She’s stressed, and while that doesn’t excuse her mistakes, it does provide some insight about some of her behaviour.

By the way, her boyfriend has been very supportive through all of this, certainly her most reliable source of strength.


Of course, let’s blame Miley now


From Lainey Gossip:

It’s been rough for Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth since he allegedly made out with January Jones and flirted aggressively with Emma Watson on Oscar weekend. Although she sort of suggested on Twitter that she didn’t believe the rumours, she also stepped out on a couple of occasions without her ring, and he’s in Australia now spending time with friends and family -- not exactly the most convincing demonstration of togetherness.

Now Page Six is reporting that they're done, for sure. Not surprising. Rumours, cheating, sure...but ultimately, it's age, isn't it? Did anyone really expect that an engagement at 19 that followed a relationship that started at 16 would really lead to marriage? And even if it did, how would that last? It probably wouldn't last outside Hollywood, never mind right in the eye of it.

But, as it often is when two famous people part, when reputations and careers are in involved, now it’s time to focus on the spin. Liam’s the one who’s being accused of offside behavior so, naturally, his side is trying to make excuses. According to Page Six sources:

“Miley and Liam are done; it’s over. She likes to party really hard and can be pretty wild. It became a problem for him.”

Ohhhhh...well OF COURSE.

He HAD to cheat on her because she wasn’t staying at home, being grateful that he loved her. If she’d only not cut her hair, you know? If only she’d left it long, like a nice girl who knows how to keep her man. Because how could she expect him to not step out on her when she shaved the sides of her head and isn’t attractive anymore and goes out all the time...?!?! Liam is so hot. He couldn’t help it. It’s all her fault.

Really? THAT’s the game he wants to play?

Tamra Natisin: Kristen Stewart’s New Lesbian Lover and Katy Perry’s Assistant

Kristen Stewart’s new friendship may be a new romantic relationship. The National Enquirer is reporting that Kristen’s new friend Tamra Natisin (Katy Perry’s assistant) are more than friends. The two women have become fast BFFs, so that must mean they are in a lesbian relationship.

An insider told The National Enquirer “Rob will hit the roof when he sees photos of Kristen and Tamra hanging out together. It’s obvious to all of her friends that there’s a romance brewing between them.” The magazine alleges that Kristen paid a lot of attention to Tamra at an event on March 3 and they spend all their free time together. The source also said Kristen doesn’t act like she misses her boyfriend Rob Pattenson. He has been in Australia shooting his new film The Rover with Guy Pearce. The source also adds that Tamra is a gay rights activist who marched in last year’s Gay Pride parade.

If this is all the proof the National Enquirer has to allege Kristen and Tamra are in a lesbian relationship then they are making this story up. A lot of women are very close friends and spend tons of time together. For example, Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox have been best friends for years and involved in almost every aspect of each other’s lives. No magazine has ever alleged that the two former Friends stars are in a lesbian relationship. The Gay Pride parade participants are not necessarily members of the gay community.

We saw a few weeks ago on Bravo’s show Vander Pump Rules the staff of SUR decorating and riding on a pink float for the parade last summer. SUR owner Lisa Vander Pump, who is heterosexual, decided her business should participate in the parade because she supports gay rights. Gossip Police are reporting that they contacted someone in Kristen’s camp asking for a comment on the National Enquirer story. The response was a big laugh.

Rob will be home soon from Australia. Kristen will be focusing all her attention on her boyfriend rather than Tamra, at least for a while. OK! Magazine is reporting that Kristen has a romantic night planned for Rob’s homecoming. She even told his friends he will have to wait to see him because she wants Rob all to herself. Perhaps Kristen’s new friendship with Tamra is filling the void until she can be with Rob again.

Patrick Stewart’s Domestic Violence Campaign And Geek Feminism

I’m glad to see Sir Patrick Stewart calling on men to prevent violence against women, particularly given the vicious harassment campaign against feminist commenter Zerlina Maxwell that commenced after she dared to suggest that maybe we should teach rape prevention to men rather than asking women to take all sorts of precautions that might or might not work to guard themselves against assault. In an appearance on Friday:

The 72-year-old British-born actor, best known for his roles in “X-Men” and “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” served as host for the launch of “Ring the Bell,” a global campaign calling on 1 million men to make 1 million “concrete, actionable promises” to end violence against women.

“Violence against women is the single greatest human rights violation of our generation,” Stewart said.

Kardashian Khroma Beauty Lawsuit Results In Injunction


If you were looking to get your hands on Khroma Beauty, the Kardashians' cosmetic line, you better act fast. The U.S. District Court has just issued a preliminary injuction against the brand -- meaning, you won't be seeing Khroma in stores for much longer.

If you haven't been paying attention to Kardashian legal troubles the past few months, their makeup line hasn't been too popular with fellow cosmetic brands. Back in October, the reality stars were threatened with a trademark infringement lawsuit by Chroma Makeup who pursued an injunction but were eventually denied by the courts.

Then, Kroma Makeup (no "h") accused Khroma of the same offense. In response, they were slapped with a lawsuit by Boldface Licensing + Branding, the company that represents Khroma Beauty, in December. Essentially, Boldface was hoping to put an end to all of this and obtain a legal declaration that the license for its makeup company was properly obtained. Kroma then filed a countersuit. Got it?

The most recent ruling in this legal battle -- the one that temporarily prevents the Kardashian brand from continuing sales for the duration of the case -- comes after the judge assessed some key figures. Since Khroma launched last winter, Kroma's sales have dropped 25 percent. Without a temporary injunction on Khroma while the two companies sort out their dispute, the judge argues that the celebrity-backed company “will destroy [Kroma's] business," according to Women's Wear Daily.

Obviously, the Kardashians themselves won't hurt too much from this now-temporary financial blow. We're sure Kim will still be able to afford her blood facials, Khloe will pamper her new puppy, Kourtney will still take beach vacays with little Mason and Kris will... you get the picture.

Stay tuned for updates on the case -- there are likely to be many, many more

Who Qualifies as a Hollywood 'Mocktress'?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Can you name the last movie starring Jessica Alba or Kate Bosworth? So why are they being paid so much to show up on the red carpet? How Hollywood's starlets are cashing in on their clotheshorse style.

She's suddenly ubiquitous, this type of actress -- just not on the big or small screen. She graces red carpets and Fashion Week front rows wearing next season's Dolce, Zac, Marc and Elie -- the perks of being a personal friend of the house -- with the most-craved Celine or Alexander McQueen bag, not yet even on preorder, on her arm. Yet she might not have done a project in years, and if she has, well, you haven't heard of it. Still, she is a legitimate actress, having starred in a few rom-coms, action flicks or horror films, looking gorgeous in all of them. No fake noses or weight gain for this girl.

Today, said actress spends the majority of her time modeling on arrival lines as opposed to runways. Remember when models just wanted to be actresses? These days, a certain lanky, large-eyed genre of B-list-and-lower actresses have, for all intents and purposes, added "model" to their business-savvy hyphenate titles. Meet the 2013 version of the model-actress -- or, the mocktress.

But don't pity her. She makes the majority of her income -- a very good income -- this way. Last year, according to sources in event planning, marketing and branding, Jessica Alba and Kate Bosworth each earned $100,000 per public appearance.

Insiders believe the mas­termind of the Kardashian empire may have been caught on video during the 1980s, when she and her late husband Robert lived a wild lifestyle. And the incredible sex tape could now, after all these years, hit the market because of her huge success and threaten her estimated $75 million fortune.

According to one source, Robert told his good friend O.J. Simpson that he overheard Kris telling her girlfriend all about the scandalous tape.

“Robert said Kris was talking about how liberating it was to be filmed having sex and how it was a turn-on to watch herself with her lover,” revealed a close source. “She said she felt like a porn star.

So Tiger moved on with a Skier and Elin goes for a Coal Miner/ BILLIONAIRE

Elin Nordegren Is Dating West Virginia Coal Billionaire
What began as a friendship between two North Palm Beach neighbors – Elin Nordegren and billionaire coal magnate Chris Cline – has blossomed into a romance, sources tell PEOPLE.

"Elin was introduced to Chris by a local friend because they seem to have a lot in common," a source tells PEOPLE. "They both have children, like to keep their personal lives quiet, believe in philanthropy, and enjoy leisure outdoor activity." The ex-wife of Tiger Woods has been seeing the West Virginia-raised Cline (who is reportedly worth $1.2 billion) since the beginning of the recent holiday season.

Both own property in the exclusive oceanfront estate community called Seminole Landing. "They have a nice casual relationship that has blossomed into a romance," the source tells PEOPLE. "Elin is very impressed with him. She thinks he is a cool guy." Married twice (and widowed and divorced) – and the father of four – Cline, 53, owns the company Foresight Reserves, as well as a luxury yacht, which he charters out for Mediterranean or Caribbean cruises. Named Mine Games, its sundeck features a swim-up bar and whirlpool, as well as a party favorite 72" plasma flat screen TV.

At this point, the relationship between the two is casual and non-exclusive. Nordergren, 33, is busy building a mansion on her Seminole Landing property after razing the original $12 million house which she bought after her divorce from Woods was final. Cline travels constantly for business and also has a home in West Virginia. "There is nothing serious at this point," the source goes on to say. "But Elin definitely wants to settle down again with a family man who will love her children, Sam and Charlie."

Chris Cline, Elin Nordegren's Billionaire Boyfriend: 5 Things You Don't Know
Here, Us Weekly uncovers five facts about the 53-year-old coal tycoon that has reportedly captured Nordegren's attention.

1. Cline is worth a reported $1.2 billion. Foresight Energy produces 20 million tons of coal a year mostly in Illinois, according to Forbes.

2. The coal business is in his blood. The West Virginia native's grandfather mined coal and his father bought out a mining partner's share for $500,000 to give Cline when he was 21, Forbes reports.

3. Cline has been previously married twice and has four children, two sons and two daughters. Cline's first wife, Sabrina, died of breast cancer in 1987. He remarried in 1993 to second wife Kelly, but they got divorced in 2000.

4. He owns a 150-acre estate in his hometown of Beckley, West Virginia and a 34,000 square foot ocean front mansion in Palm Beach, Fla. where Foresight Energy has its headquarters. (Nordegren has been renovating her own $12 million North Palm Beach mansion as well.) Cline also owns a luxury yacht called Mine Game that, according to Bloomberg, features five staterooms and a two-person submarine.

5. Despite what some environmentalists may say about the use of coal, he's proud of the work he does. "As far as the social acceptability of coal, I like to think I'm part of supplying the cheapest energy in America," Cline told Bloomberg in October 2010.

Producer Testifies Under Oath: Kim Kardashian Faked Scenes To Make Kris Humphries Look Bad!

It was all fake! Kris Humphries has waged an all-out legal battle trying to prove that his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, set him up and that their whole marriage was a sham, and a bombshell new report reveals that a producer of their reality show has admitted in court that they faked scenes to make him look bad!

A 165-page deposition from Russell Jay, a producer on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, says that there are at least two scenes that were “scripted, reshot or edited” to make Kris look like the villain after Kim decided she wanted a divorce.

Jay said in the court documents that Kim not only knew about Kris’ “surprise” proposal, but insisted producers reshoot the scene because “she didn’t like how her face looked in the first take,” according to Life & Style magazine.

The magazine reports Russell reveals that a scene where Kim confesses to her mother, Kris Jenner, that she was having trouble in her marriage with Kris was actually shot after she filed for divorce in 2011.

Ed Sheeran= STUD.

'I feel like a bit of a stud': Ed Sheeran admits to being impressed that people believed he was dating Taylor Swift


Ed Sheeran is normally one of the most modest of pop stars, but he has admitted that he feels like a 'stud'. The ginger haired crooner felt strangely desirable after he was rumoured to be dating pop superstar Taylor Swift. The Brit Award-winning singer said he was delighted that even his friends believed he was capable of attracting the attentions of such a glamorous figure.

However, Sheeran shot down the romance and said they were merely friends and denied suggestions that were was anything more than that between them. He had recently been seen leaving her hotel room in the early hours, prompting speculation that they were an item, but he said there was an innocent explanation for that - they were merely playing songs to each other. In an interview for New Zealand broadcaster TVNZ, Sheeran said: 'I did go to her hotel, I did stay there 'til four and I did leave in the same clothes. Just good friends: Taylor and Ed played songs to each other until the early hours in her hotel room, but nothing else happened. 'But I was playing her my new record. It was strictly that kind of thing. 'Literally, I went in there and we passed the guitar back and forth and played songs to each other.'

Asked whether he stole a kiss he responded: 'I'm a professional.'

Sheeran, whose friend Harry Styles from One Direction had a fling with Swift, added: 'The thing that impressed me with the media is that because they wrote about it, my mates believed it. And my mates are texting me being like 'is it true?' so I said it wasn't but the fact that people can believe it makes me feel like a bit of a stud, you know? I've got to be honest because one of my best friends did date her. I'm not that kind of guy. But the fact that people believed it impressed me a little bit.' And he pointed out it would be foolhardy to date Swift because they were due to tour together. 'Six months on the road with someone, that could get a bit awkward.'

Colton Haynes Promoted to Series Regular on The CW's Arrow

Colton Haynes has only appeared on a handful of episodes of Arrow, but he's already made a lasting impression on fans and producers. One month after making his debut as Roy Harper on the CW hit, the former Teen Wolf star has been promoted to series regular for season two.

Haynes, 24, tells Us Weekly that he's happy about the decision -- but a little wary of what might come next. "I'm excited to be joining the Arrow team but not excited to be training in the gym to keep up with Stephen [Amell]," he jokes of his super-athletic costar.

The actor -- whose character was known as Green Arrow's sidekick for more than 50 years in the DC Comics universe -- made his first appearance on the CW series in late February. At the time of his casting, executive producer Greg Berlanti told TV Guide that he was "thrilled" to have Haynes in the cast. "We were big fans of Colton from Teen Wolf," he said.

Haynes himself said last month that he was optimistic about his future on the show. "Having a younger character like Roy on the show could appeal to a wider audience -- plus, his relationship with Thea is really blossoming," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "I'm very hopeful."

Celebrity Wife Swap Recap: Fancy Versus Frugal (Alan Thicke and Gilbert Gottfried)

Celebrity Wife Swap is all new tonight on ABC. This week, the wives of Gilbert Gottfried and Alan Thicke switch households. It’s the fancy versus the frugal this week. So which celebrity has the obsession with the dollar store?

The first family we are introduced to is Alan Thicke’s family. Tanya is his wife of eight years, but he has had two wives prior to her. She lets us know that if he met her first, he could have saved a lot of money – but she would have spent that too! “I married a younger woman, because most of the women my age are dead,” Alan jokes about his younger model wife. Is it me or does Alan’s face look like he has had one too many nip tucks? Besides Tanya, Alan has one 15 year-old son. The extended family is their staff- a property manager, a housekeeper and a hairdresser. There is no doubt, Tanya is the queen of this castle.

If you don’t recognize the voice of Gilbert Gottfried, then you must be deaf. Movies, comedy clubs and SNL are just some of the jobs on Gilbert’s resume. His family consists of his wife Dara and two children, Lily and Max. “My kids look like me, if I was born attractive,” Gilbert jokes. There are no maids or staff at the Gilbert household; they are very frugal NYC family.

Josh Hutcherson Went Bowling With His Mom, Because He’s The Cutest Thing Ever

In news that will make you want to hug Josh Hutcherson, shrink him down to nugget-size and keep him in your pocket, the Catching Fire star got spotted bowling with his mother in Studio City yesterday. Can we pretend we’re a studio audience watching Danny Tanner apologize to his daughters in the last five minutes of a touching Full House episode and let out a collective awwwww.

He’s clearly as good-hearted at his character Peeta Mellark. But less inclined to murder people due to his upbringing in a non-apocalyptic world. In other words, he’s perfect.

Most Powerful Stylists in Hollywood

Julianne Moore & Leslie Fremar

At this year’s Oscars, a couple
of darts stole the little gold man’s thunder. Anne Hathaway’s last-minute wardrobe swap to a pink satin Prada dress that accentuated certain points of her anatomy made her arrival the most-tweeted moment on the red carpet (#LesNipplerables) and got more attention in the days to follow than her supporting actress win. Despite this misstep, stylist Rachel Zoe (No. 3 on THR’s Power Stylist List) landed a win with her other Oscar client, best actress winner Jennifer Lawrence, whose intricate Dior Haute Couture gown wowed viewers (and caused a near face-plant as Lawrence walked up to the stage, though she recovered charmingly).

YESSSS, LESLIE FREMAR (other clients include: Charlize Theron, ScarJo & Reese Witherspoon) & Petra Flannery (other clients include: Emma Stone, Claire Danes & Mila Kunis)! No to Zoe (Anne looked bad @ the Oscars but good at other stuff, JenLaw looked awful for most of awards season). And yes, it seems that stylists (or at least the ones that get to be photographed) are all white people.
