Alicia Keys is pregnant

Alicia Keys is pregnant.

The 33-year-old singer chose the eve of her fourth wedding anniversary today (07.31.14) to announce she and husband Swizz Beatz - with who she has three-year-old son Egypt - are expecting their second child together.

Alongside an instagram picture of herself and her spouse in which she can be seen cradling her growing bump, she wrote: "Happy Anniversary to the love of my life @therealswizzz !!.

"And to make it even sweeter we've been blessed with another angel on the way!! You make me happier than I have ever known! Here's to many many more years of the best parts of life! (sic)"

Her 35-year-old producer husband - who has two other children from previous relationships - posted another picture from the same photoshoot and shared his excitement for their impending new addition to the family.

He wrote: "Love is life & life is love and we're so excited for another GIFT from up above Happy Anniversary my Goddess 4 years of greatness & cheers to 100 plus more inshallah. (sic)"

It is unclear yet when the couple will welcome their baby into the world, but back in November the 'Empire State of Mind' singer admitted they would consider having another child in the future.

Asked if Egypt wanted a sibling, she said: "I bet he does. Not right now, but never say never."

Lorde to curate Hunger Games soundtrack

Lorde will curate the soundtrack for 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1'.

The 'Royals' hitmaker - who covered the track 'Everybody Wants to Rule the World' for 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' theme tune - will curate the soundtrack and provide the first single for the highly anticipated upcoming third instalment in the franchise.

The movies - which are directed by Francis Lawrence - are based on the novels by Suzanne Collins and star Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark.

Lawrence said of Lorde's involvement in the upcoming movie: ''I sat down with Lorde on the set of 'Mockingjay' this spring and I was immediately struck by how she so innately understood what we, as both fans and filmmakers, were trying to accomplish with the film.

''Her immense talent and keen understanding of Mockingjay's characters and themes not only had enabled her to create a song of her own that completely captures the film's essence, but her insight and passion for our project make her the perfect creative force to assembled the other songs on our soundtrack.''

Lorde, 17, confessed she was intimidated by the task of putting together the soundtrack for the entire film but admitted that as she was such a big fan she was honoured to be given the opportunity.

She said: ''Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance.''

'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay- Part 1' is slated for release on November 21 2014.



Ian Ziering: Sharknado 2 'challenging'

Ian Ziering found filming 'Sharknado 2' ''challenging''.

The 50-year-old actor has reprised his role as Fin Shepherd in the TV movie alongside Tara Reid, but he admits he found it difficult to shoot his part because he was struggling to deal with the freezing temperature in New York at the time.

Ian, who was born in New Jersey, explained: '''Sharkardo 2' takes place in New York City this time and it's a bigger storm and I've got a bigger chain saw.

''We filmed in March and it was so cold. There was not one day above freezing. It was challenging because the weather was so cold. It really made it tough to work with.''

However, his co-star Tara - who he worked with in Los Angeles last year on the first movie 'Sharknado' - helped boost morale and he was glad when it was announced that she would be reprising her role as his on-screen ex-wife April Wexle again.

He told BANG Showbiz exclusively: I was so happy to work with her again. She's such a doll and she's so fun and I really like Tara.''

When asked what the future holds for his alter-ego Fin and Tara's character April in the upcoming film, he replied: ''Well, you're gonna have to wait and see because I'm not going to give anything away. But Finn is a family man and he does everything he can do to save his family, so that's really what it's all about.''

'Sharknado 2: The Second One' airs Thursday 31 July at 9pm on Syfy.

Justin Bieber taunts Orlando Bloom

Justin Bieber has poked fun at Orlando Bloom online.

The 'Baby' singer, who narrowly avoided being punched by the British actor during a heated dispute in Ibiza in the early hours of Wednesday morning (07.30.14) that was reportedly over the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star's estranged wife Miranda Kerr, continued to taunt his rival by posting a photograph on Instagram, in which Orlando appears to be crying at the opening night of his Broadway show 'Romeo & Juliet' in New York City last September.

But the Canadian star, 20, was clearly worried about acknowledging his feud with the 37-year-old actor on his social media site, as he deleted the image shortly after posting it before sharing it again approximately 20 minutes.

Several hours earlier, he posted and deleted a picture of Australian supermodel Miranda, who split from Orlando in October after three years of marriage, sparking speculation he had a fling with her.

'The Hobbit' star attempted to punch the singer at the upmarket eatery Cipriani after Justin reportedly told him, "Say hi to Miranda for me," according to the MailOnline.

Miranda's lawyer previously told gossip website that rumors she cheated on Orlando, with whom she has three-year-old son Flynn, with the 'Confident' singer after the Victoria's Secret fashion show in 2012 were "false and defamatory."

Jessica Simpson wants to be thinner?

Jessica Simpson is allegedly eager to lose more weight.

The Weight Watchers spokesperson, who lost 50 pounds before marrying Eric Johnson in Montecito, California earlier this month, is said to be determined to stick to her strict diet and exercise regime.

A source close to the 33-year-old beauty, who has a son, Ace, 13 months, and daughter Maxwell, two, with her husband, told In Touch Weekly magazine: "She's been the smallest she's been in years, and she still doesn't think it's good enough.

"She is determined to get even thinner."

A second insider claimed: "[Jessica] wants to get down to 93 pounds. She's become an exercise addict.

"She walks six miles a day, strength-trains three times a week and constantly runs on a treadmill. She's gotten so carried away, she's fainted on a few occasions."

The blonde beauty recently admitted she doesn't want any more children despite having a "beautiful life" with her family.

She also opened up about her new husband and gushed: "I've waited a long time to find someone as wonderful as he is, and I look forward to raising our children together and growing together. With Eric, it's only just begun."

Kelsey Grammer forgives sister's killer

Kelsey Grammer testified at a parole hearing for his sister's murderer on Tuesday (07.29.14).

The 59-year-old actor, whose wife Katya gave birth to their second child last week, forgave Freddie Glenn for kidnapping and killinf his 18-year-old sibling, Karen Elisa Grammer, in Colorado Springs in 1975, but said he could not endorse his release, as it "would be a betrayal of my sister's life."

During the emotional hearing at the Limon Correctional Facility, the former 'Frasier' star told Glenn: "I accept that you live with remorse, but I live with tragedy every day. I accept your apology. I forgive you. However, I cannot give your release my endorsement."

A spokesperson for Glenn, 57, told the MailOnline his parole request was subsequently denied and he won't be eligible for release again until 2017.

Karen was kidnapped by Glenn and two accomplices while waiting for her boyfriend to finish work outside a Red Lobster restaurant and was repeatedly raped over four hours at an apartment before being brutally murdered.

In happier news, Kelsey's wife Kayte gave birth to a baby boy in Los Angeles last week, whom they are are calling Gabriel even though it is his middle name.

The couple are also parents to two-year-old daughter Faith, while the actor has four other children from previous relationships.

Alternative ending to Gone with the Wind

A script with an alternative ending to 'Gone with the Wind' is to be sold at auction.

The classic American Civil War movie - which starred Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara and Clark Gable as Rhett Butler - saw Butler walk out on his lover O'Hara while uttering the line, ''Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn''.

O'Hara was then seen vowing to move on from the relationship saying, ''After all, tomorrow is another day'', which saw the character hailed as a strong, independent woman - but it's now been revealed there could have been a more traditional ending.

An alternative script for the 1939 film - which is to be auctioned online next month and is expected to sell for up to $5,000 - swaps O'Hara's famous last line to something far more desperate.

It reads: ''Rhett!... Rhett!... You'll come back. You'll come back... I know you will!''

Margaret Barrett of Heritage Auctions is selling the unique piece of film history - which is believed to have belonged to a production member and was eventually passed to a film fan who ran a bookshop - and she claims the alternative could've seen Leigh miss out on the Oscar she won for the role.

According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Barrett said: ''In the original Scarlett comes across as a determined woman who will survive with or without Rhett, but this alternative ending is much more traditional.

''Her life has been ruined because her man left her. Scarlett is such enduring character because she is so independent. She is way ahead of her time in terms of how women were viewed.''


Drew Barrymore's half sister found dead

Drew Barrymore's half-sister has been found dead.

The 'Blended' actress' elder sibling Jessica Barrymore was found dead in her car in National City, California on Tuesday (07.29.14) morning at 6am in a suspected suicide, MailOnline reports.

Jessica - who was to celebrate her 48th birthday tomorrow (07.31..14) - was reportedly found with numerous white pills scattered on the passenger seat of her car.

A woman named Marta Lopez made the discovery when she tried to leave for work in the morning but was unable to get out of her driveway because it was blocked by Miss Barrymore's car, 10News reports.

She is said to have tried to wake Jessica before noticing the bottles of pills and calling the police.

Other witnesses who live in the area where her body was discovered claim her car had been parked there since approximately midnight on Monday (07.28.14).

The cause of death is yet to be determined, but an autopsy is scheduled to take place.

Jessica is the daughter of actor John Drew Barrymore - who is also the father of 39-year-old Drew - and his third wife Nina Wayne.

Orlando Bloom fights with Justin Bieber

Orlando Bloom has allegedly tried to punch Justin Bieber.

The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor reportedly tried to hit the 20-year-old singer whilst out at Cipriani restaurant in Ibiza in the early hours of this (07.30.14) morning.

On video footage obtained by website TMZ, the 'Beauty and the Beat' hit maker can be heard shouting: "What's up b***h?"

TMZ also reported that after ducking the punch, Justin quickly left the venue as other guests at the party started applauding the English actor.

As well as Orlando and Justin, other stars at the party at Cipriani included Paris Hilton and P. Diddy.

It is unknown why the pair started fighting, but the troubled pop star has been linked to Orlando's model ex-wife, Miranda Kerr - the mother of his three-year-old son Flynn who he split from last October - in the past. The pair were even spotted partying together after a Victoria's Secret fashion show in 2012.

To add yet more fuel to the fire, in April 2014 Orlando enjoyed a meal out with Justin's on-off girlfriend Selena Gomez.

After the alleged punching incident, Justin Bieber posted - and then quickly deleted - a photo of Miranda on his Instagram account; the biggest indication yet that the feud was caused by his rumoured relationship with the brunette beauty.

Daniel Radcliffe shaves fan's head

Daniel Radcliffe shaved a fan's head on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' on Tuesday (07.29.14 ).

The 25-year-old actor warned his willing victim, Dan from Florida, that he wasn't "known for haircutting skills" but the eager young man didn't appear too concerned as the 'Woman in Black' star got to work.

Halfway through the haircut, Daniel quipped: "If I left you as you are now, no one would ever talk to you again."

And Jimmy added: "If we were to stop right now, this would be the worst haircut that anyone has ever received."

However, friends and family of the University of Florida student were impressed

Twitter user @hannnahrath wrote: "My cousin got his hair cut by Daniel Radcliffe on Jimmy Kimmel tonight."

And @LAXers4lifee added: "Our family friends were visiting California, went to LA & the older kid just got his hair cut by Daniel Radcliffe on jimmy kimmel #wtf."

Daniel was on the show to promote his latest movie 'What If', in which he plays a medical school dropout Wallace who has been repeatedly burned by bad relationships.

He meets Chantry, who lives with her boyfriend Ben, but the chemistry between them is undeniable.

Chloe Grace Moretz doesn't want a boyfriend

Chloë Grace Moretz thinks she's too young to have a serious boyfriend.

The 'Equalizer' star admits she usually takes her mother, Teri, or brother Trevor to red carpet events, as she doesn't want to "waste away" her youth in a relationship and worries about hurting boys.

She said: "It's a tough age to fall in love: people change so quickly."

She added: "I don't want to have to feel like I have to watch my step, 'cause I'm 17 and I shouldn't have to."

The 'Carrie' star, who is close friends with Taylor Swift, isn't happy that so many of her pals are already in long-term romances.

She told the September issue of Flare magazine: "I'm like, 'Dude, you're wasting away your entire high-school years, and now you're going to waste away your college years. You're going to spend your entire life in a relationship and then you're going to get married...and then you're dead! So you lived your life in a relationship!' That's not my style."

The blonde beauty insists she doesn't find it hard to have a private life despite her fame.

She said: "When you're with someone who's just your friend, then they [the paparazzi] take photos, but when you're out with your boyfriend, they never find out. It's like, 'You guys are so dumb; you're missing your opportunity!'"

Freddie Prinze Jr. blasted by former '24' star

Freddie Prinze Jr. has been blasted by a former '24' star for calling Kiefer Sutherland "unprofessional."

Louis Lombardi, who co-starred on the series in 2005, has accused the 38-year-old actor of being "jealous" of the leading actor, 47, after Freddie recently claimed he almost quit acting completely because he "hated" working with Kiefer on the TV series in 2010.

The 46-year-old 'The Usual Suspects' actor said: "My experience with Kiefer was absolutely the opposite. He was one of the most professional actors I've ever worked with. He wanted the best out of everybody. I have nothing but great experiences with him. He's a gentleman."

He also told "Maybe he [Freddie] was jealous, maybe Kiefer did something to him--who knows? But Kiefer's one of the most professional and most likable people! Kiefer is the most professional actor. I'm baffled about [that] kid's comments and baffled why he would say this years later! I'm all for Kiefer. I think he's a great dude and I have nothing but love for him. Everyone loves him, all the actors around him, the crew. Everyone!"

Kiefer previously insisted that he wished Freddie "the best" after his former co-star branded him "the most unprofessional dude."

A spokesperson for the star said: "Kiefer worked with Freddie Prinze Jr. more than five years ago, and this is the first he has heard of Freddie's grievances. Kiefer enjoyed working with Freddie and wishes him the best."

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis to wed next July

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are planning to get married next July.

The couple, who got engaged earlier this year and are expecting their first child, have reportedly set a date for their wedding next summer, as they want to get acquainted with their baby girl before they tie the knot.

A source close to the former 'That 70s Show' co-stars told gossip website "The wedding will be next July. They want to focus on their daughter first and having it next summer seems logical."

The 36-year-old 'Two and a Half Men' actor's family are very excited about his upcoming nuptials to the 'Black Swan' star, 30.

The insider said: "Ashton's parents are very traditional and they love Mila. They got famous together, so she keeps Ashton grounded and vice-versa."

The couple are eager to have a very small wedding, with just a small number of close friends and family members.

The source said: "They won't have a big production but it will be elaborate. The wedding party will consist of the cast of 'That 70s Show,' as they are all very close. They still hang out with the original cast all the time. Most likely Danny Masterson will be the best man because him and Ashton are like brothers."

The couple, who started dating in 2012, also hope to have a big family in the future.

The insider explained: "They both want a large family and want to start on their next kid shortly after they tie the knot. They are soul mates and know that they will be together forever."
