Courteney Cox is reportedly dating Snow Patrol musician Johnny McDaid.
The Cougar Town actress was accompanied to her friend Jennifer Aniston's Christmas party on Sunday by the pianist-and-guitarist and onlookers at the bash say they were inseparable for the entire evening. "They arrived around 7pm and left together about three hours later. She drove and he sat in the passenger seat," one source told Life & Style. Another source added, "Courteney definitely looked like she was on a date! They were holding hands during the party."
Demi Lovato found it challenging to complete her book because she didn't use a ghost writer.
The 21-year-old singer struggled to find the time to write her tome, Staying Strong: 365 Days A Year, which is comprised of inspirational quotes and ideals Demi uses everyday in her life to reach her goals and stop her from relapsing into drug use, bulimia and self-harming, problems she has beaten.
"[The hardest part was] finding the time to sit down and write. A lot of people don't really write their own books [they have ghost writers], which is probably something that anybody who's not a natural author really needs," she said.
Ultimately though, the pressure to get the book to the publishers on time inspired Demi: "You have a deadline, and it needs to be finished!"
Russell Brand wanted kids with Katy Perry when they were married.
The pair tied the knot in October 2010 following a whirlwind romance and although Russell was ready to start a family, Katy wasn't as keen because she didn't want to sacrifice her pop career.
Katy - whose divorce from the comedian was finalized in February 2012 just a few months after Russell filed legal separation papers in December 2011 - said, "[Russell] really wanted me to have children, and I knew I wasn't ready. I think it was a way of control. I think it was part of, 'If I have a kid, then I would have to sacrifice - I'd have to be home more.' I really wanted to, but I knew I wasn't ready for it."
The "Roar" hitmaker - who is now in a committed relationship with musician John Mayer - insists she is still not ready to become a mother but when the time comes she wants to be a hands-on parent.
Mary J. Blige has confessed she was a "horrible person" at the start of her career.
The "Someone To Love Me" singer garnered a reputation for being a "bad girl" in the 90s as she was battling self-confessed problems with drugs and alcoholism, looking back now she believes claims her behavior was a side-effect of her feeling vulnerable as a person.
"I was a so-called bad girl or horrible person, the reputation that I had. I was young and I was trying to protect myself as best I could. And I have always had a really good monitor for trouble, especially back then," she explained, speaking to Metro.
The 42-year-old star insists the mistakes she made in her past have made her a wiser person and she would advise young musicians to always learn from their errors. Mary - who stars in Christmas movie Black Nativity alongside Jennifer Hudson and Forest Whitaker - said, "When you're young, you're going to make a lot of mistakes but the only way to learn is to make the mistakes, so you have to let them make them. That's how I learned. By making a thousand mistakes."
La Toya Jackson reportedly got married on Friday.
The 57-year-old star, who is the older sister of the late Michael Jackson, tied the knot with her long-time friend and business partner, Jeffre Phillips, in Los Angeles. A source told gossip website RadarOnline.com that La Toya's mother Katherine Jackson and her nephew Prince, 16, both attended the low-key nuptials.
La Toya did not mention her wedding on Twitter on Friday but tweeted, "Happy Friday Guys! An Act Of Kindness Is Always Appreciated!"
Jeffre surprised the singer by proposing on her show, Life with La Toya, after she went on several unsuccessful dates. But a source previously old the National Enquirer magazine that the duo have been together for years. "She decided to pretend she's looking for a boyfriend, but she's been with Jeffre for years. Everyone who knows them personally knows they're in a relationship. Jeffre is going along with it because he wants the show to be a success," the insider said.
Jennifer Hudson keeps pushing her wedding date back.
The Black Nativity star - who has four-year-old son David with fiance David Otunga - has a date in mind for the big day and despite it continually "rolling around" each year she's not planning on "rushing into anything."
"Yes, there was a date set, and that date has come around again every year. In fact, the date may keep rolling around... When I'm ready to be married, I will be married. It's that simple. Everyone should just chill. Our relationship is very strong. We're both huge family people, and I'm only going to get married once. So I'm not rushing into anything," she told Essence.
Jennifer had to leave her family behind in 2011 when she travelled to South Africa to film Winnie Mandela - a biopic about the late Nelson Mandela's wife - and although she found the separation difficult she was fully committed to telling the story of the controversial political figure. "I was like, 'Oh, my God, you want me to leave my baby and my man?' But so much was done to suppress Winnie's voice, to keep her quiet. Winnie's story needed to be told," she explained.
Jennifer Lopez has requested to shed Marc Anthony's last name in legal documents.
The "On the Floor" singer is legally known as Jennifer Muniz, after taking on her ex-husband's legal last name when they married in 2004, but now she has requested to revert back to her maiden name, Lopez - which is also her professional moniker - in a legal response to the couple's ongoing divorce proceedings.
According to gossip website TMZ, Jennifer and Marc's petitions are identical on custody issues and the couple are asking for joint legal and physical custody of their five-year-old twins, Max and Emme. Marc filed for divorce from the 44-year-old singer in April last year after they officially separated in 2011.
Jennifer has since been in a long term relationship with choreographer Casper Smart, while Marc has been dating Topshop heiress Chloe Green since February this year.
Simon Cowell has told Russell Brand to give up his multi-million pound salary if he's serious about his new political beliefs.
The music mogul has criticized the comic star for accepting large salaries for his Hollywood films, while also campaigning against the political system in the UK. Russell, 48, recently joined a protest with British activist group Anonymous as part of a worldwide protest against austerity cuts and the disadvantages of the current socio-economic system.
But Simon thinks Russell is a hypocrite who doesn't do what he says and has actually greatly benefited from capitalism. "A revolution? He's getting $10 million a movie. I mean come on! Well give your money back then, Russell. I always say that about people. Start off as you mean to go on. Donate all the money back to the revolution and then I'll believe it. I'm living in a $10 million mansion and I want a revolution? Give me a break," said the X Factor boss.
Lewis Hamilton wants to propose to Nicole Scherzinger in the New Year.
The couple, who ended their five-year romance in June, reportedly got back together a month ago and are trying to keep the reunion a secret, but Lewis has plans to pop the question after Christmas. "This will be the third time Lewis has planned to pop the question. But he believes this time is different. Both of them have benefited from the split, realizing it's impossible for them to be without each other. He wants to take Nicole to romantic Carmel and present her with the ring. There's no doubt in his mind she'll say 'yes,'" a close friend told The Daily Star.
The X Factor judge, 35, and the 28-year-old racing car driver have had a number of break-ups in the past, and the Nicole has reportedly told friends she wants to be "absolutely sure" before going public with their romance.
The pair celebrated Thanksgiving together at Lewis' parents' home last Thursday, sparking speculation they are in a relationship, but so far the former Pussycat Dolls singer has denied the rumors they are back together.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are planning to get married at the Palace of Versailles.
The couple - who have six-month-old daughter North together - have their sights set on having a spectacular ceremony at the royal chateau, which is located southwest of Paris, and money is no object to Kim and Kanye.
"Kanye has never been married and wants a big [wedding]. They are not working with a budget," a source told Us Weekly.
When Kim was 19 she married music producer Damon Thomas in 2000 but they split in 2003 when he filed for divorce. The sexy star then tied the knot with her second husband, basketball player Kris Humphries, in a $10 million wedding in August 2011, but filed for divorce just 72 days later.
Kanye is taking responsibility for planning the big day, which he wants to be the "biggest show on earth," and Kim is happy to let her fiance take control.
