Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine love to prank their fellow The Voice coaches. The "Your Body" singer recently announced she will take a break from the show next season in order to focus on her new album and Christina admitted leaving will be "bittersweet" because she has so much fun with her fellow mentors.
"It's bittersweet. I so enjoy being a coach to my team on The Voice [and] and at this point in season three, all of us coaches have truly bonded. When me and Adam are on breaks backstage, you know, we're writing profanity with my red lipstick all over Blake [Shelton]'s trailer while he's napping inside. It's like we have definitely become like brother and sister. We goof around and play around. I'm going to miss it," she told E! News.
Nicki Minaj joined American Idol because it is a "credible brand."
The "Starships" singer - who was recently confirmed as a judge on the talent show, sitting alongside Mariah Carey, Randy Jackson and Keith Urban on the panel - claims she had offers from other singing and reality shows but went for 'Idol' as it has so much history.
"This is such a credible brand. It's really serious, it's real deal it's not anything else other than really looking for talent. If I can be a part of that I'm really down for it," she said.
Nicki says she has always been a fan of the show - which is now entering its 12th season - and remembers when Jordin Sparks won the sixth series. "I remember watching American Idol in the first season and feeling inspired. I spoke to Jordin Sparks the other day and here she is starring in a movie [Sparkle] and I said to her, 'I remember watching you and picking up my phone,'" she said, speaking at the American Idol press conference.
Kevin Jonas thinks he and his wife have proven people wrong who claimed they got married too young.
The Jonas Brothers singer and his wife Danielle - who married in December 2009 - are due to appear on E!'s newest reality show Married to Jonas and says there is no acting in their new gig.
"Danielle and I are out here in New Jersey, trying to be domestic. You'll get to know her big, Italian family and who the characters are. And you'll get a look into the lives of my family. We're having fun and times are changing. We heard so much negativity when we first got married about how young we are. But it really didn't matter. We're happy. We knew that this was what we wanted and we pretty much have proven all those other people wrong. We were very honest. This is our life here in New Jersey. What you're seeing is what you get. We're not putting anything on for cameras or anything like that. You have to be open and free. [Camera crews] were just a part of our life and what was going on here," he said.
The couple also admitted that the show has helped them tackle their personal problems. "I think doing a reality show has made us talk even more about things that maybe we would not have talked about or just left on the backburner. I just feel like this made us communicate more, and I think that's important in our relationship and keeps it strong," Danielle admitted.
Rihanna has taken Oprah Winfrey on a tour of Barbados.
The "We Found Love" singer gave the popular talk show host a private tour of her native island when she visited her for a special in-depth interview for an upcoming episode of Oprah's Next Chapter.
The 24-year-old singer teased fans on Twitter by posting a picture of the pair in her car along with the caption, "Look who popped up in my hometown Barbados...Top notch."
Oprah admitted to being pleasantly surprised by the "refreshing" superstar and announced that the special episode of Oprah's Next Chapter will air in America later this month. "What a refreshing surprise she is!... Rihanna interview is August 19th. Didn't want to compete with Olympics! But worth the wait. She brought it!" she wrote on her Twitter.
Oprah was invited to film inside Rihanna's house as part of the revealing interview in which the star is rumored to open up about her relationship with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, with whom she split in 2009 after he assaulted her. The interview will mark the first time Rihanna has spoken on Oprah's show, despite the bubbly host dedicating an entire episode to domestic violence after the Chris Brown incident.
Zooey Deschanel thinks that being nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award is an "incredible honor."
The 32-year-old star of TV show New Girl was named as a contender for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series yesterday.
"I wanted to be an actress since I was two years old. It's always been my dream and ambition. This is the kind of moment you dream about. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that I could have this incredible honor and recognition. It's just so exciting," she told Entertainment Weekly.
Her co-star Max Greenfield also received a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.
"I have such a great job that's just such an incredible gift, and I always want to be doing the work because I love the work and not for some other reason. [But] it just means so much to have this nomination," she added.
Chloe Sevigny was worried fans would be "angry" at her for playing a transsexual.
The 37-year-old actress plays Mia, a pre-op transgender hitman, in TV series Hit & Miss, and she was concerned that she wouldn't be able to do the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community justice in the role.
"I was worried people would be angry that they didn't cast a real person who was transitioning. I asked why they didn't, and the producers said they didn't find the right person. It's a big responsibility toward that community, and I wanted to do them right."
Despite her concerns about taking on the part, Chloe insists she knew the role was perfect for her as soon as she started reading the script. "Who doesn't love a challenge? My manager called me and said, 'I got some scripts today, and they're f***ing crazy. I've never read anything like them, and I kinda think you're going to be into it.' A little way into reading the first script, I knew I was in."
Ryan Seacrest was "shocked" when he saw Kourtney Kardashian's labor footage.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians executive producer admits it was difficult to find a balance on how much detail to broadcast when the reality TV star gave birth to her son Mason, now two, and thinks the brunette beauty would have "loved" for the unedited film to have been screened.
"I remember looking at the raw footage of Kourtney having Mason, the baby. I'd never seen a delivery in that much detail. Half of me was interested, but I was shocked that she essentially reached down and delivered her own baby. And I was like, 'How much are we going to show of this?' And I realized that they were more qualified women to make this decision. She would have loved for us to air the entire thing. But I remember thinking, 'How far do we go?'"
Ryan is pleased with the "complete turn" which Kourtney's boyfriend Scott Disick has made in recent years to the extent he is now a firm favorite with fans: "He's become a very popular character. He's made a complete turn. I've seen him out, and people walk right past me and go take a picture with him. They are very excited to see him."
Charlie Sheen will retire when Anger Management comes to an end.
The 46-year-old actor sees his forthcoming new comedy show as his "swan song," and rather than looking for further acting work, he is looking forward to spending more time with his five kids - Cassandra, 27, Sam, eight, Lola, seven, and two-year-old twins Bob and Max - when the program eventually draws to a close.
"When I'm done with this business it's just going to be about soccer games and amusement parks. And when [Anger Management] ends, I'm done. This is my swan song. I've been doing this 30 years. And there's a lot more out there to do than make-believe, you know? I mean, I'm grateful. I've got a dream life as a direct result of television, you know? But at some point you just get tired of wearing somebody else's clothes, saying somebody else's words and working in somebody else's space. I'm also aware of the fact that you don't get these kinds of shots in the same lifetime. You're only supposed to have one hit show, unless you're Kelsey Grammer."
Oprah Winfrey says Kim Kardashian's explanation for her short-lived marriage to Kris Humphries "leveled" her.
An interview by the media mogul with the entire Kardashian clan television stars is due to air on Sunday on her network OWN.
Oprah has revealed that the 31-year-old's split from the basketball player in October will be addressed in the program, Oprah's Next Chapter. "Everyone who's asked was the marriage a publicity stunt? Why did she leave after 72 days? Her answer leveled me," she wrote on her Facebook page.
Oprah hinted more about what will feature in the one-hour chat: "I genuinely wanted to know why they have become a cultural phenomenon, why so many people love to watch their every move and why so many others love to hate them. Are they completely ego centered? Are they really 'famous for being famous' or is there something more?"
Leonardo DiCaprio was almost cast in Baywatch.
The Great Gatsby star was in line to play the role of Hobie - son of central character Mitch Buchannon - in the hugely popular 90s Californian lifeguard series, but show star and producer David Hasselhoff thinks it was better for his career not to have won the part.
"Yeah, it was true! You know what, it was the best thing to happen to Leonardo DiCaprio. I saw Leonardo and I said, 'You know what, that was the best thing that ever happened to you! You would have never gotten Titanic and have been this big star,'" said David, who played Mitch and co-produced the show.
Joking about the actor who did get the role he added, "'You'd be like Jeremy Jackson and David Hasselhoff, looking for work.' Ha!"
