The show has also carried out a search for 'The Greatest Love of All' nationwide, and the public will exclusively be hearing some of the most romantic tales of true love, and viewers who have found their soul mate against all the odds. SWISH SWOO.
Jessica Biel is sending some serious lurrrrrve vibes Justin Timberlake's way. The married pair are absolutely adorable, and share three-year-old son Silas together.
Biel, who recently produced and starred in the incredible Netflix show The Sinner, has now uploaded the CUTEST message to her husband, and we can't stop weeping.
The 36-year-old actress posted a photo of the happy couple smiling underwater, and captioned the note;
"Since the days of embarrassing pink ruffled bikinis and underwater photo shoots, you have been infusing my life with so much joy and laughter that I blame YOU for my smile lines. But I wouldn’t trade them for the world."
Their big night out seemed to take a lot out of Biel, who fell asleep in the car, much to Justin's amusement. He posted a hilarious video singing happy birthday to himself, while his wife is fully in dreamland beside him.
He added the cheeky caption; “Gotta work tomorrow for my bday so wifey really going all out tonight…” She playfully replied; “I’m just preparing for our big night out. Just preparing.”
Thursday night's Madison Square Garden performance was originally meant to happen in October, but Timberlake had ongoing bruised vocal cords and was forced to postpone it.
The former *NSYNC member previously had an operation to remove his throat nodules back in 2005.
Justin couldn't stop thinking about Jessica after their first meeting; “I’m kind of really interested in that girl. There was just something about that girl. Kind of interested in that girl. Goddamn it.”
The actress later came to a show during his FutureSex/LoveSounds tour. He finally asked for her number after offering her a lift in his tour bus.; “Then the Golden Globes came up, and that’s when we planned on seeing each other."
“We’ve had a lot of unforgettable times,” Timberlake added. “She’s become a huge influence on my life, and I have such an admiration for her, especially seeing her as a mother now.”
The romance didn't stop there, with him gushing about her influence; “But I had admiration for her before. She’s a very good writer. She’s a poet. She’s a tremendous actor. She’s funny. Very funny. And she’s one of the most patient people I’ve ever met… She changed me. She changed my life.”
The exes have six gorgeous children together; 17-year-old Pax, 14-year-old Maddox, 13-year-old Zahara, 12-year-old Shiloh and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
How do they keep track of them all? It's a mystery to us. It's reported that the two are still trying to figure out their bitter divorce, but they've reached a final agreement over the custody of their six kids following over two years of negotiations.
Jolie's lawyer, Samantha Bley DeJean, confirmed that the former Hollywood 'It Couple' have signed and closed the lengthy legal battle, which means there won't be a need to go to trial.
Samantha shared a statement to Reuters in December, writing;
"A custody arrangement was agreed to weeks ago, and has been signed by both parties and the judge. The agreement, which is based on the recommendations of the child custody evaluator, eliminates the need for a trial."
It is assumed that Brad has been given increased access to his children, and will be allowed to see them more frequently, including every other day for four hours on school days and 12 hours on a non-school day.
One publication claims things got a bit heated between the pair, with Brad was reportedly pacing back and forth outside the office, while Angelina looking “visibly upset,” according to The Blast.
Brad and Angelina have struggled to see eye-to-eye since ending their relationship, and for more than a year after the split, Angelina had primary custody of the children.
Last year, a judge ordered Brad to be allowed more time with the children for their benefit.
There were reports of alcohol abuse from the actor but no evidence was provided. The former couple met on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith in 2005 and were inseparable ever since, until their official split two years ago.
Social media users are now mentioning women of colour in a bid to give them a deserved chance, including big names such as Rihanna, Beyoncé, Priyanka Chopra, Jameela Jamil and Jennifer Lopez.
Hollywood's lengthy history of shutting out actresses and actors of colour from contention has proven problematic, I mean did anyone see Prince of Persia? Jake Gyllenhaal, you should have known better.
According to Vox, in 2009 archaeologists discovered the remains of a woman they're convinced is Princess Arsinoe, who was Cleopatra’s sister. Her remains indicated that her mother was African.
While everyone is debating about Cleopatra and her racial casting. Please read a history book! She was a pure blood Macedonian. These people were fair skinned and ruled over Egypt for generations without breeding outside their lineage. Lady Gaga would be historically correct! pic.twitter.com/FDVy4MRtgN
Paris Jackson, daughter of the late King of Pop Michael Jackson, is seeking treatment for issues relating to her emotional and mental health.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Paris is currently living in a mental health facility following a whirlwind year of work engagements, new music releases, photoshoots and public appearances.
A source spoke to ET, saying; "After a busy year of work engagements that took her all over the globe, Paris decided that she needed to take some time off to reboot, realign and prioritize her physical and emotional health."
"She checked herself into a treatment facility to aid in her wellness plan and is looking forward to coming out of this revitalized and ready to tackle the exciting new projects that await her," the insider added.
The young model suddenly ceased sharing any images on social media from the middle of December, and failed to join her family on holiday in Toyka over Christmas.
This is an unusual move for the star, who is very close with her younger brothers especially. Her followers then began to speculate that her mental health may have been suffering.
The 20-year old has had a manic year career-wise, and had to face the heartbreaking death of her grandfather Joe Jackson.
She has been hugely sought after in the fashion world, and since her Hollywood debut, it's apparent that the youngster is a new 'It Girl' on the scene.
Paris last hit the headlines in September 2018 for calling out paparazzi who were verbally attacking her as she left a New York Fashion Week event.
The mother of three posted the video of Emma singing to Hugh, but it initially failed to get a response from the man himself. "I said to myself that this is going to need something big . . . " Jacqueline said.
It turned out that Ray Donovan star Schreiber, and one of Jackman’s childhood friend Gus Worland were the ones to get the Australian actor to watch Emma's tribute.
"At first we were thinking of giving up but then four days later or so he saw it and he sent a special message that I know he wouldn't have just sent to anyone," she said.
"I was pretty freaked out when I saw it yesterday afternoon," Jacqueline added. "I was looking at something else and then it came up, 'Hugh Jackman mentioned you on Twitter'".
The actor sent an adorable message to Emma, addressing her directly;
"I just want to say your little girl, thank you so much for singing that song. Thanks so much for being a fan. And never stop dreaming. Remember, life is what you choose to make it so make it fantastic!"
Emma and her mum were over the moon after seeing it; "I was expecting maybe a text or something but a video and what he said was so lovely and so genuine," she continued.
What a wonderful story, the actor truly is a gentleman.
Congratulations to Emma, she certainly has a bright future of singing ahead of her with connections like these.
In court yesterday, (Spacey also was caught speeding before appearing) the motion claims the teen "welcomed drinks" from the famous actor and allowed him to; "put his arm around around him near the piano while they did sing-a-longs and even left the bar to smoke."
It's alleged that the young man gave his phone number to Spacey, which the motion states suggested "mutual and consensual flirting".
Spacey doesn't actually deny groping the teen, but it does state that the teenager "did not object to the alleged touching, he did not ask Spacey to stop and he did not remove himself from the situation".
The young woman who was in contact with the accuser was never told about the alleged assault, it is purported.
A number of accusations have emerged about the veteran movie star, such as Anthony Rapp's explosive claims;
She told Harper’s Bazaar that she was “sure I would have been exposed” to abuse in the film industry but she was kept safe thanks to her mother.
She said, ''I wasn't unaware that there were people in the industry who abused their power, or who were seedy or untrustworthy.''
She continued, ''But because of her I was never a victim and I’m very, very thankful. I didn't leave home at 19 all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed – I hadn't been wrapped in cotton wool – but I had been protected.”
Their close relationship has been essential in keeping Saoirse far away from the seedier side of acting.
One person wrote, ''I’m not sure choosing an Irishwoman as the cover girl for the “spirit of Great Britain” is as much a gesture of openness as erasure, particularly given the fraught history of Anglo-Irish relations. If that was their intention, it’s a bit muddled.''
Another said, ''Was her name not enough of a hint no?''
She spoke about the controversial hip-hop star's antics very openly;
“When he gets ramped up, he can’t control what he says — he can’t let it go,” she said. “He loves being ramped up."
He’s like, ‘I feel powerful when I’m ramped up. I don’t want to be so suppressed. Yeah, I say crazy s—, but I’ve always said crazy s—. That’s why I’m Kanye.'”
She insists, however, that his intentions are understandable to her as his wife;
“I always know what Kanye’s intentions are and what he’s trying to say, but I also know that they’re going to write a headline and people are going assume that that’s exactly what you said and what you meant,” she continued.
“He didn’t say slavery is a choice, he was saying, ‘If you’re going to still be enslaved for another 400 years, then that’s some bulls—.’ That, as a wife, is really frustrating to see the media take everything and run with it.”
The timing was extremely unfortunate; Kris Jenner was set to appear on the Ellen DeGeneres show, who commented on the whole debacle.
“I just want to make everything better,” said Jenner, 63. “You know me. I want everybody to get along, I want everybody to be happy, I want everybody to understand one another, communicate.”
“Even thought Kanye went on TMZ this morning and made some controversial comments, my loyalty really lies with Kanye,” Jenner continued.
“It’s really my job to be there to support Kanye and be somebody in his life that offers him love and support and not criticism.”
Once the scandal was settled, Kim flew out to Wyoming to support Kanye at his album launch party.
“I am so excited to be in Wyoming for Kanye’s listening party,” she said. “After TMZ, Kanye changed his whole album. I’m just excited so many people came out to support him. … I’m glad that now we can just have fun, listen to the music and have a good time.”
“I obviously support him and will always, but he likes to speak for himself and I like to speak for myself,” she added. “As his wife, I just have to express how I feel and have those private conversations with him and help him better communicate what he has to say.”
Kim had also been working with the White House to attempt to commute 63-year-old Alice Maria Johnson's life sentence for a first time non-violent drug offence.
“My first phone call was to Ivanka [Trump]. I just felt like as a woman she would really feel for this woman the way that I connected with Alice,” Kim said. “She did and she connected me with her husband Jared Kushner, so I actually have a meeting with the president of the United States next week to discuss Alice Johnson.”
According to Kim, it was a "tricky" situation, as she disagrees with Donald Trump's polarising views.
“I’ve been so straightforward with Jared. I have different views, I was at Hillary Clinton fundraisers. So this might not be a popular opinion, but I’ll talk to whoever I need to talk to to get the job done.”
“I know we have one shot to plead our case. Knowing that someone’s life is in your hand, it’s a really scary feeling,” she added. “We have to just do justice by Alice.”
She then flew to Tennessee to meet Johnson in person, after Trump shockingly commuted her sentence.
“It’s just such a satisfying moment. To know that she’s been behind bars for 22 years and she’s now home — it’s really amazing,” she said. “Just seeing Alice with her huge family, it’s like me and my big family. If I couldn’t be with them for two decades, that would break my soul.”
“That’s what so many people don’t get. This has nothing to do with politics. F— politics,” she added. “I don’t really know anything. This is: Get in front of the person — the only person in the world that can make this decision — and try to change their mind.”
“Every time I think that I’ve had a crazy year, I live the next year and it’s even crazier. … On this journey of getting Alice out, I have learned so much about criminal justice is and really how messed up our system is,” Kim said.
"There’s so much that has to be done … now that that is in me, I can’t stop at Alice. There has to be so much more than I can do.”
Since Cardi B gave birth to her first child, Kulture Kiari Cephus, back in July, the rapper has somehow managed to keep the newborn totally out of the spotlight.
Zero pictures, zero videos, zero papparazzi shots. We commend the rap star for managing this feat; it's no easy accomplishment to hide a four-month-old from the limelight when you're a high-profile celebrity.
Last night, Cardi B FINALLY showed us an adorable image of her precious baby girl, and the internet has shut down with the kuteness.
The Instagram post shows baby Kulture sitting in her car seat, with a special bib with her name embroidered on it, looking like the most adorable bundle of joy wearing a pink headband and innocent little face.
We cannot handle this level of sweetness.
Cardi captioned the image; "My heart", and her 36 million followers lost their damn minds. #Kulture is already trending on Twitter, because the four-month-old was destined for social media adoration.
Offset and Cardi B, despite announcing their separation through their Instagram accounts, have insisted that they would always have love for each other for the sake of Kulture;
"He’s always somebody that I run to to talk to and we got a lot of love for each other but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time and it’s nobody’s fault."
"I guess we grew out of love, but we’re not together anymore."
How could anyone deny this fact when they look at her cute little face?
The rap goddess opened the MTV VMA show this year by holding a Moon Man swaddled in a pink blanket, tricking everyone into thinking that baby Kulture was finally going to be revealed, but it was a mere joke.
Offset replied to the separation announcement with the comment; "Y'all won".
We, for one, are just so glad to finally have received this gift of Kulture photos. What we do to deserve this?
