In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, T-Swift gets feisty, Justin Bieber upsets fans, and bffs Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore get their tan on.
HIT: Kylie Jenner and Jaden Smith Hang Out
Could this be the beginning stages of puppy love? Kylie Jenner and Jaden Smith have been friends for a while but according to a source who revealed to Us Weekly, the two are dating! The young stars were most recently spotted together on a lunch date at Caffe Nero in London’s famous Piccadilly Square on Sunday, Jaden was in town to celebrate Justin Bieber’s 19th birthday.
MISS: T-Swift Disses Tina Fey and Amy Poehler
Come on Taylor, can’t you take a joke? Let’s be real here, If you’re a celebrity who’s recently made some headlines and you’re attending the Golden Globes that happen to be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, prepare to be made fun of.
Swift, who is known to test the waters so to speak, was the subject of a Fey-Poehler joke during the Globes. The duo said that Swift should keep her hands off of Michael J. Fox’s son, Sam, the night’s Mr. Golden Globes. Taylor was not impressed… I guess the wounds are still fresh because who could forget Swift’s split from One Directioner, Harry Styles.
In a new interview with Vanity Fair Tay-tay had some words of her own. While on the topic of mean girls, Swift said, ”You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’”
Fey spoke to Us Weekly. “It was just a joke, and I think it was actually a very benign joke.” Poehler also commented, she told the Hollywood Reporter, ”…I feel bad if she was upset. I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl, that being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff.”
I think I need to arrange a group hug for these three.

HIT: Spice Girls Musical Opens in London
Viva Forever!, the musical based on the Spice Girls’ greatest hits, opened in London on Tuesday night. I personally loved every little campy bit of 1998’s Spice World even though it was a bomb with critics. With that being said, I can’t help but still have high hopes for the musical even though it a) hasn’t been getting the greatest reviews and b) doesn’t star Sporty, Posh, Scary, Ginger and Baby. “Viva forever…”
MISS: Justin Bieber Murder Plot Included Castration
According to multiple reports, two men were arrested on the suspicion of plotting to murder Justin Bieber. The two men were allegedly hired by a convicted murderer and rapist, 45-year-old Dean Martin, who wanted Bieber and his bodyguard strangled with a paisley tie and castrated. Martin is apparently incredibly infatuated with the pop star that he has a tattoo on his leg and has tried to contact him several times. After failing to hear back, Martin hired the two men but revealed the plot to the police before anything bad could happen. Talk about crazy! Probably not a bad idea to hire more bodyguards, right Biebs?
HIT: Jennifer Lawrence Named Most Desirable Woman of 2012
Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence tops this year’s AskMen.com’s “Top 99 Most Desirable Women” list, and while I hate that this list is on a website called Ask Men, I have to agree with them. Lawrence tops my own Girl Crush list. She’s funny, incredibly talented (she’s on her way to pick up another Oscar nod with Silver Linings Playbook) and just seems like so much fun in interviews.

There’s nothing like watching your favourite celebrities in their film debuts and seeing how different they looked before they made it big. This mashup combines some of our favourite actors and actresses in their very first films. Take Zooey Deschanel in Mumford above — she’s a long way from her unicorn-loving, cute-dress wearing, songbird days.
In order of appearance: Leonardo DiCaprio, Denzel Washington, Jeff Goldblum, Drew Barrymore, William Hurt, Clint Eastwood, Harvey Keitel, Samuel L. Jackson, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, Jake Gyllenhaal, Seth Rogen, James Franco, Zooey Deschanel, Ellen Page, Jesse Eisenberg, Kate Bosworth, Steve Carell, Alison Brie, Cuba Gooding Jr., Bryan Cranston, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph, Jason Bateman, Michael Keaton, Jamie Foxx, Kate Beckinsale, Edward Norton, James Earl Jones, and Chevy Chase.
Watch it here:
As one relationship ends, another one flourishes. Hopefully this time, actress Drew Barrymore isn’t trying to one-up Kim Kardashian’s quickie marriage.
People Magazine say the 36-year-old “Going the Distance” star has been going strong with her boyfriend, Will Kopelman since February of last year.
Will, an art consultant, gave her a radiant-cut diamond shining at just under 4 carats over the holidays in Sun Valley, Utah. Judging from the photo, it looks like a knock-out of a rock but this isn’t the first time Drew’s been handed a sparlking ring before.
In 1994, she wed bar owner Jeremy Thomas but they divorced two months later. In 2001, who could forget her short (and very questionable) marriage to comedian Tom Green. The odd couple only lasted four months. Based on all the math, Drew and Will have at least six months together before they split and divide assets.
Last night’s Saturday Night Live previewed a clip from the upcoming film from the makers of ‘Valentine’s Day’ and ‘New Year’s Eve’… it’s ‘Apocalypse’.
It stars “literally thousands” of your favourite celebrities, from Drew Barymore (Kristin Wiig) to Penny Marshall (Fred Armisen) to Christina Aguilera (Katy Perry) – even “that kid from Modern Family” (Bobby Moynihan). “It’s love… at last sight” in this hilarious parody of over-indulgent saga of date movies. It was one of the highlights of last night’s Katy Perry-hosted show.
Though didn’t Funny or Die do this earlier in the week with ‘Christmas Day’?
Drew Barrymore updated her Facebook status to say, “I’m engaged,” sparking rumours that boyfriend Justin Long had popped the question. However, a representative for the actress says the status means nothing, reports E! News.
ABC is reportedly close to ordering a pilot for a new series reviving 1970s hit Charlie’s Angels, reports CBC. Josh Friedman, who did Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, will write and produce the series.
Drew Barrymore, who starred in and produced two Charlie’s Angels films in the early 2000s will also reportedly be involved.
Drew Barrymore and Justin Long are back together – on the big screen, at least.
The real-life ex-couple are set to star in “Going the Distance,” a romantic comedy for New Line that is being directed by “American Teen” helmer Nanette Burstein.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Barrymore and Long will play a couple trying to maintain a long-distance relationship after Barrymore’s character moves to Chicago to be a middle-school teacher.
Contrary to recent reports and hope from Drew Barrymore’s fans, the actress will not be directing the third installment of the Twilight Vampire series.
Instead of Barrymore, Spanish director, Juan Antonio Bayona has landed the director gig and will begin filming “Eclipse,” which is set to be an exciting addition to the Vampire narrative, Us Magazine reports.
Drew Barrymore is feeling the Twilight bite.
According to E! News, the former E.T. actress is among the top choices to direct “Eclipse”, the third entry in the Twilight franchise.
Catherine Hardwicke was the one who directed the first film, and Chris Weitz is just about to start filming the sequel, “New Moon”. Hardwicke left the franchise because of her apparent lack of authority. Read more…
But he was so into her!
Us Magazine has confirmed Drew Barrymore’s split with Justin Long. The co-stars are about to begin promoting their new film, “He Just Not That Into You.”
The adorable exes were friends for seven years before becoming romantically involved, and a source for the magazine claims that they remain friends.
In the March issue of Vogue, when asked what comes to mind when he thinks of Barrymore, Long replied, “Beauty and light, and she shines it on everybody who comes into contact with her.”
Ellen Page will no longer be going to hell – and that’s a bad thing.
Due to scheduling conflicts, Page has dropped out of Sam Raimi’s upcoming film “Drag Me To Hell.” She was set to star as a woman under a curse, reports the CBC.
Raimi was so determined to have Page star that the filming schedule was set for her. However, the film wasn’t ready to shoot and has had to be pushed back. Page will be working on Drew Barrymore’s “Whip It!” at that time, and will also have to go through intense physical training to play a competitive roller derby skater.
Fresh off her success with “Juno,” Page also has a film called “Peacock,” co-starring Cillian Murphy, in the works.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, “White Oleander” star Alison Lohman will take Page’s place in “Hell.”
