Lana Del Rey thinks that feminism "isn't interesting."
The "West Coast" singer, who is set to release her new album Ultraviolence this month, insists that she doesn't find feminism "an interesting concept," and admits she is often bored when people talk to her about it.
"For me, the issue of feminism is just not an interesting concept... Whenever people bring up feminism, I'm like, God. I'm just not really that interested. I'm more interested in, you know, SpaceX and Tesla, what's going to happen with our intergalactic possibilities," she said.
However, the star went on to explain that her idea of a true feminist is a woman who "feels free enough to do whatever she wants."
Meanwhile, the star, who debuted the title track from her new album yesterday on YouTube, also spoke about video footage taken by a fan of her crying on stage last year during a gig in Dublin, Ireland. "I'd been sick on tour for about two years with this medical anomaly that doctors couldn't figure out. That's a big part of my life: I just feel really sick a lot of the time and can't figure out why. I'd gotten these shots in Russia, where we'd just been. It was just heavy. It's just heavy performing for people who really care about you, and you don't really care that much about yourself sometimes," she explained.
Taylor Swift has donated $50,000 to a children's hospital in Philadelphia.
The 24-year-old singer has given the large sum of money to The Children's Hospital in Pennsylvania to help fund a music program for youngsters suffering from cancer. The specialized scheme promises to lift the spirits of young sick patients by allowing them to create and produce their own music during their treatment.
"Taylor Swift's gift will help lift the spirits of many patients during a difficult time. Taylor Swift's music is an inspiration to so many of our teen patients," said the CEO of the medical center, Steven M. Altschuler.
Lamia Barakat, director of the Psychosocial Services Program at the cancer center, added, "We can think of no better way to use her gift than to grow our Adolescent and Young Adult initiative designed to support the emotional well-being of our teens with cancer."
Nicki Minaj would like to get married on a beach.
The "Starships" hitmaker, who has recently sparked rumors she's engaged to her boyfriend of 10 years Safaree Samuels, has already starting planning her big day and has an ideal location in mind.
"I'd want it to be on a beach somewhere, like Turks and Caicos," she said.
The 31-year-old rapper has also already lined up her dresses for her big day and is adamant she'll have at least three wardrobe changes throughout the romantic event: "I'm gonna have 10 [dresses] ... OK, maybe more like three -- a big princess dress, something short I can dance in at the party and then an Alexander McQueen gown that's sexy and figure-hugging."
Courteney Cox will get married this year.
The Cougar Town actress - who has nine-year-old daughter Coco with ex-husband David Arquette - and Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid, 37, have reportedly been talking about tying the knot after dating for a year, and friends expect a wedding to take place in the near future.
"Johnny loves her daughter Coco, and he wants to marry Courteney. They have discussed getting engaged and everyone thinks it is going to happen," a source said.
The 49-year-old actress' friends are said to be delighted she is thinking of settling down with the "Run" hitmaker because they think he is good for her. "She met Johnny through Ed Sheeran, who is friends with Jennifer Aniston. All of Courteney's friends love Johnny, which is great because Jen wasn't so fond of David Arquette," an insider told New York Post's Page Six column.
Courteney recently admitted she is happier than ever with Johnny and was thankful for his support on her movie directorial debut, Just Before I Go: "I couldn't be happier. He supports me in every way He supports me creatively. He really believed in the movie and not just because he likes me, though I know that helps."
Usher believes that Justin Bieber needs to "manage" his own life now that he's an adult.
The rapper has mentored the pop heartthrob since his career took off at the age of just 13, seven years ago, but he hasn't tried to stage an intervention following Justin's recent run-ins with the law and bad publicity as he insists the youngster needs to learn from his own mistakes.
"I gave every bit of advice and always told him it was up to him if he really wanted this. Now that he has it, as an adult, it's his to manage. Do I turn my head in shame based off of what I see, what I know? Nah, I don't because it's all part of life's process. Am I in it with him? Yeah," Usher said in Nylon.
Usher, 35, was mentored by Diddy from the age of 15, so he understands why it's important to have someone else in the industry looking out for you. "Artistic development made me who I am. Somebody took the time to help me find what it is that works for me as an entertainer and who I am as a music maker," he explained.
Bruce Willis and Demi Moore's daughter insists she isn't just an attention-seeker.
The former couple's second eldest child, Scout Willis, has no regrets about posting pictures of herself walking around topless in New York City on Twitter last week to protest Instagram's nudity policy after her account was suspended, as she believes she helped create an opportunity for debate.
Katy Perry has reportedly reunited with Florence and the Machine guitarist Rob Ackroyd.
The "Birthday" singer has been spending lots of time with her former flame - whom she initially dated in 2012 after meeting at Coachella festival - while in the UK for her Prismatic World Tour, and the pair weren't shy about flaunting their romance at an afterparty to celebrate the end of the European leg of her worldwide jaunt.
According to The Sun newspaper, Rob has been at several of Katy's gigs and the couple were kissing and cuddling in full view of celebrities such as Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse and Selena Gomez at the exclusive party backstage at London's The O2 arena last weekend.
"Katy and Rob seemed to be very much back together at her party on Saturday night. They were inseparable, kissing, flirting and cuddling away in front of the roadies, celebs and friends at the bash. There were a fair few famous faces in the room but Katy and Rob only had eyes for each other," a source said.
The "In Da Club" hitmaker was shocked when the "Drunk In Love" singer, nicknamed Sasha Fierce, "jumped off a ledge and came running over" to defend her husband at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas.
"One time [Beyonce] jumped off of a ledge and came running over cause she thought me and Jay had issues. And I'm like, 'What the f**k? Did she really just jump and run up on me like that?'" the 38-year-old rapper, real name Curtis Jackson, told The Breakfast Club on New York City radio station Power 105.1.
The 32-year-old beauty became very protective of Jay because she thought things were about to turn physical between him and the "Candy Shop" hitmaker, but they soon laughed off the dispute.
Chris Brown has been released from jail.
The 24-year-old singer left prison at midnight last night after serving 108 days of a 131-day sentence for probation violation, TMZ reports.
Chris was originally sentenced to 365 days in custody on May 9 after admitting violating his probation by getting into a fight in Washington D.C. last year, but Judge James R. Brandlin gave him credit for the 234 days he has already spent in rehab and jail.
The judge also ordered Chris, who has recently been diagnosed with Bipolar disorder, to attend therapy sessions twice a week and undergo random drug testing three times a week.

Ray J was arrested in Beverly Hills last night.
The R&B star, who is Brandy Norwood's younger brother, reportedly got into a violent confrontation and spat in a police officer's face at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. A law enforcement source told gossip website TMZ.com that police were initially called to the scene because the 33-year-old star made contact with an unidentified woman's butt in the bar.
Although it was determined to be "incidental" and not sexual battery, Ray J was asked to leave the hotel, but he allegedly became belligerent and refused to leave so security made a citizen's arrest. The situation is said to have escalated further when law enforcement arrived at the scene and the "I Hit It First" hitmaker kicked out the back window of the police car and spat in an arresting officer's face as he was being handcuffed.
He was booked for trespassing, resisting arrest, vandalism and battery on a police officer, and later released.
