Are Zac Efron and Michelle Rodriguez a Couple?

by

Surprise couple alert! Are Zac Efron and Michelle Rodriguez a couple? It sure seems that way. The two were spotted smooching during a a romantic holiday vacation in Sardinia this weekend. The two lovebirds couldn’t keep their hands off each other, and weren’t afraid to display some serious PDA in front of their friends.
The stars kissed and cuddled as they relaxed on a sailboat and took dips in the ocean throughout the outing. At one point, the 26-year-old actor even helped his leading lady onto the boat and fetched her a towel. How cute is that? The 35-year-old brunette proudly showed off her fit body in a black-and-white bikini while Efron opted for a pair of green board shorts. (E! Magazine)
Italian entrepreneur Gianluca Vacchi, has been documenting the couple’s trip on social media.
In fact, just last week Vacchi shared several adorable clips of the That Awkward Moment stud dancing and one sexy shot of Rodriguez doing a headstand in a bikini.
“Welcome to my friends Michelle and Zac at l’Eremita…enjoy,” he wrote. (E! Magazine)

During their two week vacation Zac and Michelle went from friends to inseparable. I wonder if this new found attraction is just a summer fling, or the real thing? I guess only time will tell.

Mya Squashes Vicious Cheating Rumors

by

Earlier today, the Internet was ablaze with reports that Jay had been having a long-term affair with Mya. But as quickly as the rumors spread, the 34-year-old singer took to Instagram to swiftly put out the flames.
Vicious rumors of Mya being Jay’s mistress were claimed to be false, and in response to a user asking Mya if she was Jay’s mistress, Mya wrote, “Never did, never was, never will. Illegitimate, thirsty sources with no facts and that’s the ‘media’ for you-especially today. I play second to no one, pay my own bills, have my own label, own management company, rely on God only and respect myself & marriage too much for nonsense.” (E! Online)
The Mya-Jay cheating rumors originated from a blind item posted online claiming the 44-year-old rapper had a longtime relationship with a “very short named R&B singer who hasn’t had a hit in awhile and doesn’t really even act or record any longer.” “She basically lives off the generosity of Jay-Z and a couple of other guys,” the post claimed. (E! Online)
Jayonce  have been at the center of cheating speculation since his Met Gala elevator brawl with Solange Knowles.
There may be trouble in paradise for Jay and Bey but Mya has made it clear that she isn’t the cause of it. She also said “False rumors are crafted for ratings & numbers. And miserable, unhappy people need someone to judge to deter the attention away from their own misery and feel better about their miserable lives. If they did it to Jesus, they’ll do it to anyone. God bless.” (E! Online)
Mya squashes vicious cheating rumors and comes out on top. The media has a way of influencing people’s opinions while falsifying information. It’s great that Mya could be confident enough to squash the lies and shed light on the truth.

Nicole Scherzinger’s Secret Bulimia Struggle

by

Nicole Scherzinger, the singer and former X Factor judge, always looked picture perfect onstage with the Pussycat Dolls in her 20s. However, looks can be deceiving.  When the spot lights dimmed, Scherzinger says she went to unhealthy measures to stay slim, battling bulimia before finally getting help.

“I had such a great life on the outside, the Dolls were on top of the world, but I was miserable on the inside,” she reveals in the August issue of Cosmopolitan magazine in the U.K. “I’m never letting that happen again.”

Scherzinger who is now 36, went public with her bulimia struggle in 2012 and admits talking about her long-secret eating disorder is still difficult.

“It is such a horrible, paralyzing disease and it was such a dark time for me,” she says. “I didn’t think anyone knew in my group or in my family because I hid it that well, I was so ashamed. I knew it wasn’t normal or healthy because I was hurting myself through this cycle of disordered eating. It was my drug, my addiction. It’s an endless vicious cycle.”  (Cosmopolitan Magazine)

It took blacking out while on tour for Scherzinger to see that what she was doing to herself was definitely taking a toll on her body, and most importantly her life. Today, Scherzinger is healthy, but admits that despite her outgoing public persona, deep down she is a shy person.

“I get past my shyness by making everything about others and not thinking about myself,” she says. “That’s what I did on The X Factor – I can be goofy and playful when it’s about the acts. They are like my babies. But when I’m off stage I’m not as big and animated … for me all my smiles and confidence are a triumph because it came from a broken place.” (Cosmopolitan Magazine)

Another thing that makes Ms. Scherzinger smile is her relationship with British Formula 1 racer Lewis Hamilton.

Although many people were unaware of Nicole Scherzinger’s secret bulimia struggle, bulimia is a disorder that effects many young females today. It is great to be fit, slim, and have an amazing beach body, but it is more important to be healthy overall. Nicole deciding to be upfront with her eating disorder and seeking help for it, may encourage someone else to do the same.

Did French Montana Confirm Relationship With Khloe Kardashian?

by

So everyone can kind of assume that Khloe Kardashian and French Montana are an item,  but neither of these high profile celebrities have actually come out and referred to themselves as a couple, until now that is.
An eyewitness told E! News that the rapper was sweet enough to pick up his lady from the airport early this morning after she landed in New York City from a red-eye flight, and during their trek back to his New Jersey pad, French told a photographer, “You got good pics because we goin’ out in a relationship.” (E! News)
Although Montana’s statement doesn’t make much sense you get the point. Montana picked up his lady in style as he pulled up in a Rolls-Royce Ghost (valued at $225,000) with a Mercedes-Benz van following behind him. The couple decided to ride home in the van, and made a pit stop at Dunkin’ Donuts to use the restroom before arriving at Montana’s Jersey home.
According to the eyewitness the rapper was super friendly to everyone and was in a  really good mood. It was clear that he was happy to have his woman back in town. The two lovebirds have been joint at the hip for months, and aside from traveling the world together, they even  bought themselves his and hers 18-carat rose gold Rafaello & Company watches along with a few other unspecified pieces.
A source stated that Khloe adores French and can’t stop gushing over him. “She keeps telling everyone what a great guy he is.” (E! News)
Did French Montana confirm relationship with Khloe Kardashian? Well it sure seems that way. The two seem to be extremely happy together which has to be refreshing for Khloe who just ended a messy marriage with ex husband Lamar Odom. There’s nothing like the feeling of new love, and if that’s what these two have I say they embrace it!

Sam Smith Turns Whitney Houston Song Into Soulful Ballad

by

It takes true guts to tackle a Whitney Houston song, but British crooner Sam Smith handled the task with ease. He successfully transformed the late Whitney Houston’s 1985 dance hit “How Will I Know” into a stirring ballad anchored by his familiar falsetto.
Smith performed the cover on radio program SiriusXM Hits 1, which posted the video over the weekend to much fanfare, causing his rendition to become a Facebook trending topic well into Monday. The video is nearing 1 million YouTube views as of Monday morning. (Mashable.com)
Smith just recently released his debut album In the Lonely Hour, in the United States this month. The “How Will I Know” cover has created even more buzz for the 21 year old singer/songwriter, and because it was so gracefully done has increased his popularity severely. Smith has proven to be a very versatile artist in his short amount of time in the spotlight. From his club hit “Latch – Disclosure” to his sultry love song “Stay With Me”, Smith has shown that he is capable of doing pretty much anything.
The debut album, which Smith says “is about a guy that I fell in love with last year and he didn’t love me back,” features his popular singles “Stay With Me” and “Leave Your Lover.”
Sam Smith turns Whitney Houston song into soulful ballad that his fans can’t seem to get enough of. Although Smith is a new artist on the scene, his beautiful voice and meaningful song lyrics have definitely taken the world by storm. I can’t wait to see what else Mr. Smith has in store for us all.

On June 10, she hinted she was pregnant when she posted a pair of baby sneakers on her Instagram account. Sources also confirmed to E!

Kelly Rowland reveals bare baby bump and with much confidence. I’m sure Kelly and Tim are both very excited about welcoming the new addition into their family and can’t wait for the birth of their first child.

Zendaya Coleman Given Coveted Aaliyah Movie Role

by

Lifetime announced on June 16, that Disney actress Zendaya Coleman, 17, has been cast as Aaliyah in a new made-for-TV movie about the late R&B superstar, who died at age 22 in a plane crash in 2001.
The biopic—Aaliyah: Princess of R&B, based on the bestselling book Aaliyah: More Than a Woman—will tell the story of the “One in a Million” singer’s life and death, from her debut on Star Search to her rise to her fame and, finally, her tragic passing. (US Magazine)
Replay” singer and Dancing With the Stars alum Zendaya will appear in the title role, and is set to record four of Aaliyah’s hit songs for the film. Created by Turn the Beat Around director Bradley Walsh, with a script by Brown Sugar screenwriter Michael Elliot, Aaliyah: Princess of R&B will shoot this summer. It’s set to premiere in the fall.
There has been a lot of negative criticism regarding the decision to cast Zendaya as Aaliyah from fans via social networking sites, such as Facebook and Instagram. The main concern from fans is that Zendaya looks nothing like the “One in a Million” singer, and it will be hard for her to sell the performance. I agree that Zendaya and Aaliyah do not resemble one another, but I do believe that Zendaya’s singing and dancing skills will definitely work in her favor for the role. As far as her acting goes, I guess we will all just have to wait and see.
Zendaya Coleman given coveted Aaliyah movie role, and she will have to show and prove that she deserves it. Although Aaliyah is getting the small screen treatment from Lifetime, I’m sure the movie will not disappoint. Aaliyah fans have been waiting far too long for the R&B Princess’s life to be documented. I can’t wait to see what Lifetime has in store.

Jelena’s Unconditional Love

by

Are Justin Beiber and Selena Gomez at it again? The up and down relationship status between these two pop stars is always changing, but they also always seem to give fans a hint as to where they stand through Instagram. Beiber recently posted a picture of him and Selena on his Instagram account, with his head being snuggled in her arms. Although his face isn’t showing, the tattoo on his neck which is Beiber’s latest ink gives away his identity.
The black and white photo with a caption that read “Unconditional Love” was deleted from Beiber’s account no sooner than he had put it up. The question on everybody’s mind is have these two love birds rekindled their romance? It is possible that Justin is just drawing inspiration for some new music. Cody Simpson  is currently collaborating with J.B. and tweeted, “chill studio session last night with @justinbieber. wrote a beautiful guitar track. able to relate when it comes to love & women. good sht!”
A source told E! News that they aren’t aware of Justin and Selena being back together, while Bieber’s rep declined to comment on his client’s personal life. It seemed like Jelena’s romance was done for good, especially since Beiber has been spotted hanging out and hooking up with a lot of females lately. Meanwhile, Selena recently returned from a trip to Nepal, where she traveled to raise awareness for children in need, on behalf of UNICEF.
Jelena’s unconditional love could actually be no love at all, and just a case of Beiber trying to reminisce on the good times he had with Selena. SInce there are no clear answers at this point, I guess we will all just have to sit around and wait for the next development in the Jelena saga.

Halle Berry’s Brutal Child Support Battle Put To An End

by

After nearly two years in a grueling child support case, Halle Berry has been ordered to pay $16,000 a month in child support to her ex Gabriel Aubry. Berry who recently starred in “X-Men: Days of Future Past”, was sentenced to pay the hefty amount to the father of her 6-year old daughter Nahla. The settlement was reached on May 30th by Los Angeles Superior Court judge Scott Gordon, according to The Associated Press.
Aside from paying nearly $200,000 a year in support, Berry is said to be fully responsible for her daughter’s tuition while both parents will divide her health care expenses. The Academy Award-winning actress’ sizable monthly bill will continue until Nahla turns 19 or graduates from high school, whichever comes first. (Yahoo Celebrity)
Outside of her parental obligations, Berry must also ay Aubry’s $300,000 attorney’s fees as well as a retroactive child support payment of $115,000. Talk about some harsh reality.
The couple originally split in 2010, but have been battling since 2012 to reach an agreement that best suits the welfare of their daughter. Canadian model Gabriel Aubry, began fighting back after Berry wanted to move Nahla to France to be with her, and her current husband, Oliver Martinez. The men even got into a bloody altercation around Thanksgiving of 2012. The fight resulted in both sides obtaining restraining orders, and an eventual private settlement that included a judge rejecting Berry’s request to relocate Nahla.
Berry who is now a mother of two, welcomed a baby boy named Maceo in October with Martinez after they said their “I do’s” in July. With the settlement finally reached and the custody drama put to an end, Berry can truly move forward with her life. “I feel really happy,” she told ET. “It’s one of the best things that happened in my life, for sure.”
Halle Berry’s brutal child support battle put to an end, and it seems as if both parties are satisfied with the outcome. Berry can have the very best for her daughter and continue her life with her new husband and baby boy. I wish all parties involved the very best.

Tracy Morgan In Critical Condition After Multi-Vehicle Crash

by

Comedian Tracy Morgan is in critical condition  after a tragic multi-vehicle crash caused by truck driver Kevin Roper. The crash also resulted in the death of comedian James McNair, and a new development revealed that Roper shouldn’t have been on the road at all. The 35-year-old truck driver caused the tragic wreck by operating a vehicle “without having slept for a period in excess of 24 hours.” Roper, who is currently free on $50,000 bail, is expected to appear in a New Jersey courtroom Monday to face charges of vehicular homicide, assault and reckless driving. (E News)
Although Morgan remains in critical condition, his rep says that the former 30 Rock star has been “been more responsive today, which is an incredibly encouraging sign.” Morgan sustained multiple injuries including a broken leg, a broken femur, a broken nose and several broken ribs. He is expected to remain hospitalized for several weeks. Morgan who is a father of four, has an excellent support system and is under the best care at Wood Johnson Hospital, his rep said. Fellow comics, countless celebrities, and fans have  offered messages of support, prayers, and lots of love via social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
Tracy Morgan in critical condition after multi-vehicle crash, and I wish him a very speedy recovery. Life is so unexpected, full of ups and downs. It is important to cherish those in our lives and let them know how much they mean to us on a regular basis. I’ll be keeping Tracy Morgan and the whole Morgan family in my prayers.
