Katy Perry dating who?

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have further fueled rumors they are dating after being spotted holding hands at dinner.

The duo were seen cozying up together at the Sunset Tower in Los Angeles on Wednesday (02.03.16), at a dinner for 'The Pirates of the Caribbean' actor's manager's birthday.

Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry and Jason Bateman were also in attendance and the birthday boy, Aleen Keshishian, later posted a picture of the group on Instagram that showed the 'Dark Horse' hitmaker leaning into Orlando, 39,

What's more, the pair reportedly arrived and left together, and although they tried to avoid being seen, onlookers spotted them holding hands.

An insider told 'Entertainment Tonight': "They were holding hands in their car.

"She was nervous about being spotted and entered quickly trying to cover up. Orlando opened the door for her. They were holding hands in the car. They each rested their arms on the centre console and they were definitely interlocked."

The news comes after the pair were first spotted "aggressively flirting" at a post-Golden Globes party back in January.

A source said at the time: "Katy and Orlando were standing in the back of the party drinking Moët and were aggressively flirting before leaving together.

"He wouldn't stop staring at her cleavage - and she was very flirty and laid on the charm.

"He would lean in to whisper into her ear and touch the small of her back as they chatted."

And just weeks later, they attended a one-man show, 'The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Palkey', together.

Katy was previously married to Russell Brand and was most recently in an on/off relationship with singer John Mayer, while Orlando has a five-year-old son, Flynn, with ex-wife Miranda Kerr.



Justin Bieber has new dog

Justin Bieber has a new dog named Phill.

The 'What Do You Mean?' singer showed off his new black Labrador puppy in a series of Instagram posts which showed the cute canine exploring his new home.

In the first picture, Justin wrote: "New addition to the family his name is Phil (sic)"

But the 22-year-old star ensured his other dog, Esther, wasn't feeling left out as he also shared a number of pictures of him showering the pooch with affection.

On one, he wrote: "Can't make Esther too jealous."

Justin also shared a short video of the two dogs together.

Though he hasn't lived with his famous owner for long, Phill already has his own Instagram account.

However, @PhilltheCutie has ensured his account is private so far, but fans willing to check out the two pictures he's already posted should have no problem getting accepted to his followers list.

A message on the page reads: "Phill To be ACCEPTED go on my dad @justinbieber & comment "justins dog page is @phillthecutie" I'm checking! (sic)"

Esther - who the 'Sorry' hitmaker welcomed into his home last May - also has her own Instagram account, EsthertheCutie.

Phill so far only has 149 followers, so he has a long way to go to meet the 516,000 acquired by his new doggy pal.

It seems Justin may already be having problems with his new pooch's name as he has spelled it varyingly 'Phil' or 'Phill' on his posts, and in one caption even referred to the more formal 'Philip'.

'Workhorse' Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore is a ''workhorse''.

The 'Miss You Already' star insists she is a grafter when it comes to her career but will always put her children - three-year-old Olive and 21-month-old Frankie, who she has with husband Will Kopelman - before her job.

She told Harper's Bazaar magazine: ''I'll do my best. I'm a workhorse, I always have been, I always will be. But work is very much second to my kids.''

Meanwhile, the 40-year-old actress previously revealed she is terrified of her children getting seriously ill.

She shared: ''I first started working with Children's Hospital Los Angeles about three years ago. We wanted to do this kid-centric day with Flower Beauty, but they told us that the mothers don't often get to leave the hospital, so we decided to do an annual Mother's Day event right there. The children can play while their moms get treated to a day of beauty with hair and make-up stations.

''I remember walking into the room of a child who was on a respirator, and the mother and I recognised each other. She had been kind enough to give me and my kids their table in a coffee shop two weeks earlier. Now she was telling me about how one day her daughter was fine and the next she wasn't. It tapped into all my fears as a mother, and I was so moved.''


Amber Riley for Dreamgirls

Amber Riley is to make her stage debut in a production of 'Dreamgirls' on London's West End.

The former 'Glee' actress won the central role of Effie after wowing director Casey Nicholaw and reducing producer Sonia Friedman to tears with her rendition of 'And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going'.

Sonia told the Daily Mail newspaper: "I was crying, because I was overwhelmed by the emotion and passion she put into the number.

"And also crying with utter excitement and pure joy, relief and happiness that this girl was going to be able to give this performance in the UK. Her voice is a gift from God!"

Amber - who previously performed the song during the first season of 'Glee' - is thrilled to have landed the prestigiou role.

The 29-year-old star said in a statement: "I am so honoured and excited to not only be playing such an iconic role, but also to be working with Sonia Friedman and Casey Nicholaw. Working on the West End is now a dream realized, I just feel like this is going to be something special!"

'Dreamgirls' will begin previews at the Savoy Theatre in November, and will officially open the following month.

Casting on the production is currently being done.

The musical is set in 1960s Detroit and charts the rise of girl group the Dreams. It is loosely based on the Supremes and Diana Ross' affair with music executive Berry Gordy.

It was first run on New York's Broadway in 1981 and a movie was made in 2006, starring Beyonce and Jennifer Hudson.

25 minute proposal

Amal Clooney left George Clooney on one knee for 25 minutes before accepting his proposal.

The 'Hail, Caesar!' star - who tied the knot with the human rights lawyer in September 2014 - feared putting his hip out when he got down on one knee to ask for Amal's hand in marriage.

Recalling the proposal, he said: "I got down on my knee and said, 'I couldn't imagine spending the rest of my life without you.' And she kept looking at the ring and she was looking at me and she was like 'Oh my God.'

"And we now know because there is a playlist, so we know how long it actually took, and it's like 25 minutes, 25 minutes! Finally I literally said, 'Look, I hope the answer's yes, but I need an answer. I'm 52 and I could throw out my hip pretty soon'. And she said, 'Oh, yes' and it worked out really well."

And whilst George had "everything planned out" before, he had to make a last minute change because Amal, unusually, decided to do the dishes.

Speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he said: "Everything was planned out and I've cooked dinner. And she comes in and she's just come back from London. I've got it all set up, timed out and the song [he wanted to propose with in the background] is coming and she gets up to go wash the dishes, which she's never done. And I'm like what are you doing and she comes back in. And finally I blew out the candle and I said 'I think the lighter's in the box behind you.'"

More kids for Vergara

Sofia Vergara wants kids with husband Joe Manganiello, but doesn't expect to have them "naturally".

The 43-year-old actress - who has 23-year-old son Manolo with childhood sweetheart Joe Gonzalez - is keen to have a second child with her 39-year-old partner, despite being locked in a bitter dispute with her ex-fiance Nick Loeb over the fate of two frozen embryos.

She told old Net-A-Porter's weekly digital magazine THE EDIT: "I wouldn't mind another child, my husband is younger than me and he wants kids so we're trying to figure out what we're going to do.

"The idea of doing it all again doesn't scare me but, hey, it's not like it's going to happen naturally, is it?"

The Colombian stunner admits she has "boobs of a stripper" which often leave her bleeding in pain on the red carpet, so she is planning to get a breast reduction later on in life but doesn't want to end up looking like "an old stripper".

She explained: "My body has changed with age. People will often say that I wear the same thing on the red carpet, but I know my body: it's very voluptuous and I've got the boobs of a stripper.

"They're a 32DDD and because they're real, they're everywhere, so I need my dresses to have structure - and under armour.

"There is so much going on under my dresses that I bleed at the end of award ceremonies. In 10 years I think it would be good to have a reduction.

"I don't think it's even going to be an option not to [have surgery], because I'm going to start having back pains. I wouldn't make them too small - just enough that I don't end up looking like an old stripper."

Sofia joked she wants to "kill [herself]" when she catches a glimpse of her 'Modern Family' alter-ego Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on screen nowadays compared to when she started portraying the brunette beauty in 2009, and admits she'll be devastated when guys stop wolf whistling at her.

She added: "Watching myself age on screen is awful! There is nothing more disturbing than watching an episode of 'Modern Family' from the first season, then one from seven years later.

"It just makes me want to kill myself, but what can I do? I'll be sad when the wolf whistles stop. I'm already sad that men have started calling me 'Señora'. I get really p***ed off, 'What? It's Señorita!' "

Celine speaks about Rene

Celine Dion, speaking for the first time since Rene Angelil died, said her husband kept her grounded and protected her from the gritty business details of her superstar career.

The singer paid tribute at a Wednesday night memorial at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

People gathered to celebrate the life of her late husband and manager credited with striking the deals that have defined her status as one of the most popular voices in the world, from saying "yes" to her defining hit from the "Titanic" when critics doubted the movie to her glitzy Las Vegas Strip residency.

The 73-year-old died in January after a long battle with throat cancer in the suburban Las Vegas home that he shared with Dion and their three children.

Duff's divorce finalized

Hilary Duff's divorce from Mike Comrie has been finalized.

The dissolution of the marriage occurred last week, almost two years after the 28-year-old singer and actress split from the 35-year-old retired hockey player.

According to PEOPLE, Hilary will keep their Beverly Hills mansion, although she has to buy Mike out for $2,408,786.

Hilary also keeps any of their other shared property but Mike gets his Bentley coupe and Mercedes G-Class SUV.

Hilary and Mike, who had a pre-nuptial agreement, will share custody of their son Luca and neither will pay spousal support.

Speaking previously about their post-split relationship, Hilary insisted the couple are still extremely close.

She explained: "We have such a great kid. And we're both so obsessed with him.

"We are good friends and we laugh a lot. And we have a great communication and we share pictures when one is not with Luca. He's great, we are great and we keep on trucking.

"Mike and I were very in love when we met. We both really wanted to get married. I'd been working since the age of 11 or 12, so making that choice at a young age seemed right for me. Maybe it wasn't, but we spent the majority of our time together really happy."

10 Fast and Furious films?

Vin Diesel has confirmed the 'Fast and Furious' franchise will run for 10 films.

The blockbuster racing series has so far been comprised on seven movies since its inception in 2001, and the 47-year-old star of the films has announced that the remaining sequels will be released in April 2017, 2019 and 2021 respectively.

Taking to his Instagram account, Vin uploaded an image with the words ''2 decades, 10 films, 1 saga'' and release dates ''8 April 14 2017, 9 April 19 2019, 10 April 2 2021''.

If all goes to plan, by Summer 2021 the total running time for the franchise will stretch to more than 15 hours of car chases.

And whilst the road ahead is now mapped for the series - with the next film being titled 'Fast 8' - the consecutive movies are as-yet-unnamed.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson - who plays Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs - will star in the eighth movie and it has been confirmed by NBC Universal vice-chairman Ron Meyer that Paul Walker, who tragically died in an unrelated car accident halfway through filming of 'Fast and Furious 7', will also feature in the 2017 release in ''some form or another''.

In 'Fast and Furious 7' Paul's image was shot using CGI and his younger brother, Cody Walker, 27, played the body double of his character Brian O'Conner.

Diesel reprises his lead role as former street racer Dominic Toretto and teased the next instalment will be a lot darker and this will be brought out by 'Straight Outta Compton' director F. Gary Gray who is helming the sequel.

Vin said ''We have a director who is going to bring the darkness out and bring out the character.''

'Fast 8' is expected to be released on April 14, 2017.

Don't photograph me eating

Abigail Breslin doesn't like it when people try and secretly take photos of her when she's eating in restaurants.

The 'Scream Queens' star is always happy to pose for photos with fans when they ask her but she finds it very frustrating when she spots people trying to get a snap of her snacking in public.

In an interview with Prestige Hong Kong magazine, she said: "I never usually mind when someone wants to take a photo with me. I think it's really cool, and it's always nice to hear when somebody says they've seen something you've done. But what I don't like is when people try and take secret pictures, or to photograph you slyly. Then I'm like, 'All right, come on, either say something or don't do it at all.'

"The other day I was at a pizza place and there were two girls Googling me while they were standing right in front of me, like I couldn't hear. People try and mask it by pretending they're looking at their phone, but nobody holds up a phone five inches from their face. I want to say to them, 'If you want a photo, just ask me, don't do it while I'm taking a bite of something.' "

Abigail - first shot to fame as a child actress in 'Little Miss Sunshine' - insists she hasn't let fame change the way she lives her life and isn't wary about letting new friends into her life.

And the 'Maggie' star credits her family, especially her parents Kim and Michael, for keeping her feet firmly planted on the ground.

She said: "My family has definitely kept me grounded. And my friends ... I have a lot of friends who aren't in the business at all, people I grew up with in New York, as well as others I've met on movies or through work.

"I used to be more cautious about new people, wondering if people were sincere or not. But if you think that way, you'll never have a lot of friends. I have to give people the benefit of the doubt. If I look at most people who are trying to befriend me - what are they getting from it anyway? It's not like I'm a multi-billionaire, like if you're my friend I'll get you a car. But sure, there are definitely people - and you can tell immediately - who are maybe just trying to get press. You can usually find out pretty quickly and weed them out early on."

Sir Elton John to 'faze out'

Sir Elton John is going to "faze out" his career over the next few years.

The 68-year-old singer has decided to start reducing his workload as he doesn't want to miss out on watching his children, Zachary, five, and Elijah, three, grow up.

He said: "It's all about the kids now, everything is worked out around half term and when they're going to be in school, when they're out of school, and they are the most important things in my life. They take preference over everything.

"Obviously I work but the work will get less and less and I'll spend more time with my children growing up. And that's what I want to do, I'll gradually faze things out in a few years."

However, the 'Your Song' hitmaker is adamant the quiet faze won't last "forever" and is only essential while his children, whom he has with his husband David Furnish, are in school.

He explained: "It's not forever but I want to see my kids grow up. I go all over the world. I just don't want to tour so much. At the moment, it's just about when the boys are out of school and how much we can spend with them."

But Elton's hiatus won't be happening just yet as he already has plans to work on two top-secret musicals.

Speaking to Ken Bruce on BBC Radio 2 today (03.02.16), he said: "I'm working on a musical but I can't tell you about that yet and then I'm working on another musical after."
