Beyoncé and Jay-Z are expecting their second child, according to E! News.
The news comes right at the heels of the singer cancelling a tour date in Antwerp, Belgium citing “dehydration and exhaustion” as the culprit. Rumours of Beyoncé’s third pregnancy (her first resulted in a miscarriage which was first revealed in her HBO documentary) first began swirling earlier this month when she walked down the MET Gala red carpet in a high-waisted Givenchy dress with possibly figure-hiding pattern.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z already have one child together, 16-month-old Blue Ivy Carter.

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Kim Kardashian looks like a couch at the MET Gala and Miley Cyrus is Maxim’s favourite beautiful lady (not their wording but we’re trying to stay classy. Key word: trying).
MISS: Whatever Kim Kardashian wore the MET Gala
This Kardashian, who is well-known around the world for her, um, reality show and is also a self-proclaimed trend-setter. Unfortunately, my zero desire to buy floral dresses that look like my grandma’s couch hasn’t changed especially after seeing her at Monday’s MET Gala. The worst part? Kanye didn’t seem to mind it! Come on Kim, we know you can do better…
HIT: Miley Cyrus is #1 on Maxim’s Hot 100
Twenty-year-old Miley Cyrus used her Twitter account to let the world know that she received the number one spot on Maxim magazine’s Hot 100 list. She tweeted “Didn’t know this was coming out yet! I’m so happy to be #1 on Maxims HOT 100! #myfanskickass #dreamsdocometrue.” And to the joy of Miley fans around the globe, she tweeted: “I was bored. So I got Instagram.”
MISS: Gwyneth Paltrow is a wet rag at the MET Gala
Gwyneth Paltrow, told USA Today, “I’m never going again, it was so un-fun.” Apparently, the Iron Man star said fashion’s version of the Oscars red carpet was “too crowded” and “boiling.” And this is why people like Gwyneth Paltrow as much as they like Anne Hathaway—which isn’t saying much for her.
HIT: Prince Harry is Touring the United States
Like we really needed a reason to goggle at Prince Harry, he’s currently touring the United States of America. Never mind his wild trip to Las Vegas last year. Here’s a picture of him and Michelle Obama being all, “let me graciously represent my grandmother who still loves me even though my butt is plastered all over the Internet.” Never change Prince “Hot” Harry.
MISS: Lauryn Hill Goes to Jail
Justin Bieber added yet another tattoo to his left arm—a koi fish, to be exact. Fans spotted the koi fish on his forearm last week on his tour stop in Copenhagen, Denmark.
According to Crushable.com, koi carp are supposed to bring good luck. This is the Canadian pop star’s 13th tattoo. Among his many tattoos, the Biebs also has an owl, praying hands, a bird and a portrait of Jesus.
Do you think Bieber has gone overboard with his tattoos?
Congratulations go out to Wiz Khalifa and finance Amber Rose welcomed their baby boy on Thursday! They christened their bundle of joy Sebastian ‘The Bash” Taylor Thomaz. Only parents as cool as Wiz and Amber would give their kid a rap-worthy nickname from the get go.
Amber broke the news on her Instagram with this cute daddy photo.
Wiz followed up with an update on baby Bash’s first day.
Thanx for all the love guys. Bash took his first poop, had a good meal now he’s peacin ?????????
— Wiz Khalifa (@wizkhalifa) February 22, 2013
Wiz sat down with andPOP not too long ago to tell us how excited he is to be a dad and told us that he would love to get a Rolls Royce complete with a built-in child-seat and customized paint job.
Congrats to the happy couple!
In the continuing files “Things Kesha Has Done That Makes Us Want To Puke,” she nonchalantly revealed she has in fact drunk her own pee. No kidding.
The “Tik Tok” singer is very open about some of the YUCK things she has done in a new MTV doc called “My Crazy Beautiful Life.” She says in the upcoming show: “I was told drinking my own pee was good, I was trying to be healthy. Somebody tried to take my pee away from me and I said, ‘That is mine!’ So I snatched it up and took a chug and it was really gross so I don’t do it anymore.”
Well… we’re happy she learned from the experience?!
Other revelation? Apparently lady smells bad — really bad “My fans are amazing to me but usually the people around me say, ‘You’re disgusting!’ or, ‘Put your pants on!’ or ‘You’re late!’ Or they say, ‘You smell weird, what’s that smell?’” she revealed, admitting, “I smell like a hobo. One time, someone told me I smelt like a shrimp on a diaper. I thought I could make a fragrance that was little like a shrimp on a Faberge diaper but I don’t know if people want to smell like that.”
Tim Hortons made Ryan Gosling his very own coffee mug but unfortunately you won’t be able to get one anytime soon. Apparently Gosling told Tribute.ca a while ago that he’d love to have a personalized Tim’s mug, asking quite seriously: “Can we get a Tim’s mug for Gangster Squad, please?” Like any coffee-chugging publicist would do, they pounced on the opportunity.
Tim Hortons tweeted: “Hey Tribute, you inspired us to create this one-of-a-kind Tim Hortons mug. We hope you like it”
That’s all fine and great (we want Ryan to have his deepest wishes fulfilled) but I won’t be completely satisfied until I have a freshly brewed Tim’s coffee in a personalized Ryan Gosling mug. Leave it to Etsy, I’m sure they already have a handmade version floating around somewhere.
The Backstreet Boys were about as close to boy band perfection as you can get. Everyone had Millennium blaring from their boombox at one time or another. But one thing could have made them better: Ryan Gosling.
Yes, you read that correctly. The once-upon-a-time Mouseketeer turned big screen heartthrob and man of my dreams recently revealed that he could’ve been the sixth member of one of the greatest boy bands in history. Nick Carter was always the focus of my fantasies (a side effect of my love for his baby brother Aaron), but I know for a fact my pre-teen self would have fallen hard for Ryan had he been in the picture.
Not convinced? Just picture the miracle that is Ryan Gosling crooning “I Want It That Way” in pleather pants and way too much hair gel alongside the original members. If that’s still not enough, check out this video for proof that Gosling was boy band material.

Who wouldn’t want a royal gift for the holidays? That’s just what Ed Sheeran got from a well-connected friend! While it wasn’t a romantic sleigh ride with Prince William, the “A-Team” songwriter revealed on Twitter that his present was just as regal.
Now that’s epic. We can’t believe Sealand is a legit country either! What do you think of Ed’s new title?
Demi Lovato for Brow Enhancers
Why it would work: Have you seen this girl’s brows lately? Whatever The X-Factor host is doing is working for her because her brows suddenly look as thick and luscious as Lily Collins.
Tagline: ”For brows as thick as the Taman Negara jungle but as tame as Audrey Hepburn’s in Breakfast At Tiffany’s.”
Taylor Swift for You Belong With Donuts
Why it would work: An obvious choice considering how much she: 1. Tweets photos of cupcake parties. 2. Instagrams photos of pastries. 3. Includes food in her music videos.
Tagline: ”It’s a love story.”
Justin Bieber for Hipster Suspenders
Why it would work: Justin Bieber loves low-riding pants but when you’ve got a slew of fangirls following you around wanting to pinch the old toosh, it can be a problem.
Tagline: “My low-riding pants were verging on hoodlum-territory. With suspenders, they’re just hipster!”
Kesha for Cock Pop Vibrators
Why it would work: Kesha is dating a vibrator, didn’t you know? Since she’s so chummy with sex toys, why not represent them? She tweeted the above photo a couple months ago with the caption: “my new bf is doing an interview.”
Tagline: “Your love is my drug.”

I’m so flip-flapping tired of reading cheap headlines about Lady Gaga’s weight because 1. I don’t care. 2. Shaming someone for gaining a few pounds is not only mean but sets a bad example for other people who are insecure about their size.
In an interview about her new fragrance with Stylist, the conversation inevitably turned back to the media’s reaction to her weight (because that’s the rule, right?). Then Gaga made a comment about how Adele weighs more than her but nobody every says anything about it. Gaga was ACTUALLY saying Adele is such a beautiful and confident person and has a confidence level she hopes to match one day. She also encouraged women to be less “bitchy” towards each other and make more of an effort to be nice.
After this plea, OF COURSE the headlines rang: ”Lady Gaga threw Adele under the bus” and “Lady Gaga Wonders Why No One Attacks Adele’s Weight.”
Here’s what Gaga actually said:
I think women are just, for no reason, wretched to each other all the time, and I don’t think they use clothes or men or perfume or make-up or anything more than they use anything else. We should all make an effort to be nice to one another all the time….
On the media calling her fat:
I thought, well I don’t really care if they think I’m fat, because, quite honestly, I did gain about 30 pounds. Adele is bigger than me, how come nobody says anything about it? She’s so wonderful and I think her confidence is something I have to match. She has set the bar very high for a lot of woman. I need to be a confident woman and just say politically active things when I can that are helpful to young people.
While some people focused on Gaga’s positive comments about Adele setting the bar high for women, others missed the mark with a waste of text. Instead of body shaming and focusing on negativity, let’s focus on something more positive like Body Revolution. Kay?
Naive Justin Bieber fans could have been down a head of hair after anonymous 4Chan trolls posted a fake screenshot of a tweet by Entertainment Tonight that Justin Bieber was diagnosed with leukaemia. Tweets from celebrities seemed to confirm the news:
The thing is, Bieber was never diagnosed with cancer (thankfully) and Entertainment Tonight NEVER posted that tweet. Following the “news,” so-called Beliebers began posting photos and videos of themselves with their heads shaved with the hashtag #BaldForBieber. Turns out, most of them were just posers in on the prank.
It’s a despicable prank to direct at teen girls and if you had to have a license to be on the Internet I’d say REVOKE THAT SH*T. Making people believe that someone — anyone — has cancer, is not funny.
These days, you never know what that 4Chan bunch will do. They’ve messed with Taylor Swift and Mountain Dew, among others. Someone who was in on the joke stepped at the beginning, with a firsthand account:
This is actually not true at all. I was there when we started this shit. Somebody made a few twitter accounts, we edited Wikipedia, we spammed chat rooms, and we even posted here on Reddit (but it was deleted for lack of evidence). Somebody made a few fake news posts too which were convincing but without a link it wasn’t enough. The girls you are seeing are actually sisters/girlfriends of a few /b/tards that did this to try and convince other girls to do it. I’m trying to find one of the YouTube videos of some dude’s sister fake crying but I can’t seem to find it at the moment. [Gawker]
Yikes!! The pranksters even set up a fake website with one of the videos below. Be careful what you read online everyone, it’s a wild, wild world out there.
The latest news that isn’t really “news” and isn’t really recent either, is that Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy broke up a while ago. Taylor, 22, and Conor, 18, broke up after a few months of dating, according to a close friend of Taylor’s, who told US Weekly. “It was just a distance thing. No hard feelings. They’re fine,” the friend said.
Breakups can be hard on the people involved but sometimes it can be tough for the zillions of fans too — especially when the said person sends you on whirlwinds of emotions after every breakup and new romance. If you’re having an especially tough time dealing with this one, we created a handy list of strategies that might help you recover. Except, you should never actually do them because NONE OF THESE TIPS will help you. Like ever. Except maybe the last one…
1. Tweet about your intense sorrow with the hashtag #TaylorKennedySplit or #ShameConor2012. Enlist other fans to grieve with you.
2. Trek to the most remote part of the Himalayas with your guitar, let your teardrops fall on your guitar and offer it as a sacrifice. Then wish on a wishing star that she’ll find love again.
3. Lock your bedroom door and spend all night drafting lyrics to a song for her next album. This breakup anthem will be called “Dear Conor” OBVS.
4. If you go into remission after their breakup, take the 100 percent scientific Taylor Swift breakup meter from her perspective. Then assure yourself that they’re never ever getting back together. Like ever. Here’s the chart: Read more…
This is a story about a young girl named Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta (aka Lady Gaga) whose profound effect on the world was only highlighted recently, when a FERN was named after her. That’s right. There are over 12,000 species of plants belonging to the botanical group known as Pteridophyta (ferns) and one of them is named after Gaga.
Botanists at Duke University announced is was naming a newly identified fern after the pop singer, specifically, Gaga germanotta.
The connection came in because of Gaga’s commitment to LGBT advocacy. Ferns reproduce by sending out spores of fluid gender, which grow up to be male, female or both. Biology professor Kathleen Pryer said: “We wanted to name this genus for Lady Gaga because of her fervent defence of equality and individual expression. And as we started to consider it, the ferns themselves gave us more reasons why it was a good choice.” [via NY Times]
Kanye West flipped out a paparazzi in Miami last night after she asked some questions about Kim Kardashian’s ex boyfriend Reggie Bush. It all started after Kimye left a restaurant in Miami beach and the photographer shouted: Kim did you know Reggie is here [in Miami] having dinner?” She then followed with another whopper: “Did you wanna go congratulate him on his pregnancy?”
According to TMZ, Kanye rushed after the female pap. The pap later told the other photographers that Kanye tried to beat her up. Although he never struck her, he did try to grab her camera. Meanwhile, Kim tried to keep the peace by continuing to smile (unfortunately that never really works). After the confrontation, Kim and Kanye got into a waiting Rolls Royce.
This isn’t the first time Kanye tried to run after a camera, though I really have no sympathy for the pap. Kim and Kanye live a public life and can’t expect to have privacy all the time, however, the question was an a inappropriate and distasteful attempt to start drama. It certainly did, so the pap can’t complain if Kanye wasn’t a good sport about it. That’s exactly what she wanted right?
TMZ should know, Kanye destroyed one of their cameras:

Singing, acting, dancing, modelling, general goodwill… is there anything Demi Lovato can’t do? The X-Factor judge and Unbroken singer got her start at an early age, and we have the pictures and videos to prove it.
She rocked this purple frilly dress
Demi Lovato was born in New Mexico in 1992. She grew up in Texas with her country music mom and little sister Dallas. Even as a baby, she could WERK it!
She was a beauty queen
After belting Celine Dion at a kindergarten talent show (say what?), Demi’s mom encouraged her to start doing beauty pageants. When she was eight, she won the crown for Mini Miss South Texas Cinderella in 2000. But really, she’s beautiful inside and out.
Barney predicted she’d play music
Demi’s big break came when she was offered the part of Angela on Barney and Friends in 2002. This clip is amazing because 1. Ten-year-old Demi (n the pink shirt) tells Barney she want to be in a band and 2. You get a bonus look at her BFF Selena Gomez playing patty-cake!
She was in control of her first interview Read more…
Apparently somewhere along the line, Justin Bieber, Ryan Gosling, Celine Dion and Avril Lavigne are all related, which isn’t all that shocking considering:
1. Three of them are from Ontario and all of them are from Canada.
2. At some point or another ALL OF US ARE RELATED.
The whole scheme is clearly a blatant marketing campaign by Ancestry.com to amp up users but it’s admittedly a pretty smart one. The Canadian heritage archive told People the family links back to the early settlers of Canada’s Quebec province. Bieber and Gosling are 11th cousins once removed; he and Dion are 10th cousins three times removed; and he and Lavigne are 12th cousins.
If you really think about it though we’re all related in some way or another. So the whole message of this project and my article specifically is that you can be related to any celebrity you like. (You could totally go to a party and be all “Kanye and I are LITERALLY bros.”) I’m not thinking about it too much when it comes to Ryan Gosling though — being related to him puts a damper on our imminent relationship.
Anyway, thanks Ancestry.com for pointing out something that’s not very shocking but still mildly interesting for some reason.
Check it out here:
Paris Jackson recently tweeted a photo of herself sporting a new, short, blonde haircut. Resembling Miley’s recent chop, the blonde bob seems to be making a come back. Although the drastic change turned out to be a wig, it looks rockin’. Short seems to be the latest Fall trend, do it now before everyone else does!
Ever daydreamed about Harry Styles and what he would be like in the bedroom? Just read ’50 Shades of Grey,’ since that is where he gets his sexual education. In an Interview with The Sun, he spoke about how some women friend’s of his were making him read the book. “They were like, ‘Just borrow this,’ and I was like, ‘Hmmm’. It seems interesting. I could probably learn from it, I don’t know. I feel like it’s an educational and interesting read.” Looks like I just found my new crush!
In surprisingly unsurprising news of the day, Kesha revealed to Ryan Seacrest on KIIS FM she recently had a trippy supernatural encounter. A sexual encounter.
Instead of warding off the ghost with mint leaves and energy-flowing crystals, the “Tik Tok” singer apparently had sex with the invisible force. She said: “I also have this song called “Supernatural.” It’s about experiences with the supernatural … but in a sexy way … I had a couple experiences with the supernatural … I don’t know his name! He was a ghost! I’m very open to it.”
You can listen to a preview of the song below. Her new album Warrior will be out on Nov. 30. We also narrowed down some candidates of possible ghosts Kesha had sex with:
Patrick Swayze in Ghost
Slimer in Ghostbusters

It appears that Lil Wayne’s head or too inflated or he’s officially run out of f*cks to give because his videotaped deposition during a legal proceeding is one of the most pitiful things we’ve seen. You’d think the rapper would put a little more thought into his answers considering he’s the one suing Quincy Jones III over a documentary about him.
During the proceedings it seems he can’t remember ANYTHING that’s happened to him and if he does answer a question it comes out as complete gibberish.
According to TMZ Lil Wayne agreed to let QJ III follow him around for a few months to document his life while he was producing his album Tha Carter III. However, Lil Wayne was disappointed with the final product and called it a “scandalous portrayal” of his life.
In this video, Lil Wayne is questioned by Quincy’s lawyer Pete Ross. The best conversation?
