Whitney Houston Dies at 48 :( 106

I know it may sound silly, that the death of a singer whom i’ve never met would make my heart just drop to the floor. But that is exactly what i feel like. Like a piece is missing.. actually everytime i hear an artist i’ve grown up listening to or watching has passed away, i feel like i’ve lost a part of me. Because they did shape my life, with their amazing songs and performance on screen.

Today i just found out that one of the greatest singers of our time has passed away… Whitney Houston.

“Whitney Houston, winner of multiple music awards, singer of 11 chart-topping hits on the Hot 100 and one of the biggest superstars to emerge from the 1980s, has died at the age of 48, ithas been reported. No cause of death has been announced yet, but Los Angeles police stated that an emergency call was placed at 3:23 p.m. today saying that the singer was unconscious on the fourth floor of the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Authorities arrived within two minutes, but attempts to resuscitate Houston failed and she was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m.”

A lot has gone on for Whitney and she was set to come back with a new album. She was to perform at the Clive Davis party before the Grammy which is happening tonight… It’s a massive massive shock.

I just want to share that i do not think it’s nice or right for people to look at her negative past. I also don’t think it’s right for people to be sharing horrendous images of Whitney, even if they want to make a point that drugs has it’s effects. Yes we all know that. But i think it’s highly disrespectful. Yes she’s had some bad ups and downs, but imagine what she has to do to maintain her performance standards, her art.. and she has to also go through personal turmoil. it make it even worse that she is in the public eye… Take a listen to what Lionel Richie has to say and there is such a ring of truth in it.

I believe strongly that we should remember her as the sparkling Diva that she is. Just take a look at her list of awards: 2 Emmy Awards, 6 Grammy Awards, 30 Billboard Music Awards, 22 American Music Award..among a total of 4115 career awards as of 2010.

She was the only artist to chart 7 consecutive No.1 Billboard Hot 100 hits (“Saving All My Love for You, How Will I Know, Greatest Love of All, I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me), Didn’t We Almost Have it All, So Emotional and Where Do Broken Hearts Go”)

oh and I managed to find Whitney Houston’s very final performance.. and of all the songs. I’m glad she sand this one… “Jesus Loves Me”.. I feel like tearing knowing that she sang a song bout Jesus.. i’m sure she is now in the safe and loving hands of Jesus in heaven. The origin of beautiful music.


And this is her final interview together with her mentor Clive Davis.

Here i’m sharing a compilation of all my favourite songs from Whitney. Hope you like it too. ^_^

We Will Always Love You Whitney Houston! You showed us what the Greatest Love of All is through your music. It was just One Moment In Time, thats all i needed to be swept from the world from the sound of your voice.

Goodbye Steve Jobs 1,329

The found of Apple has passed on at the young age of 56 years – Steve Jobs. It’s a sad thing, such a visionary and inspirational man, is now gone from the world and we are now “Job-less”.


For a person who loves technology, such as myself, i have to say.. Thank You Steve Jobs.. i was always a windows user till i recently got the Macbook Pro. You have revolutionized how computers are used and seen. I won’t get into the boring details of operating systems and hardware, but Apple as a brand is on a level all by itself. The brand that Steve Jobs has built is so strong, that you would either show immense support or dislike. People would line up for days just to get a hold of the latest gadget from Apple… now that is what you call phenomenal.

Browsing online on my lovely Macbook Pro, i came across this sweet tribute to Steve. It’s a mashup song between Nicki Minaj and Rihanna’s “Fly” together with a motivating speech by Steve Jobs Stanford’s 2005 commencement.

“FLY” STEVE JOBS TRIBUTE (sketchomatic) by sketchomatic

The song is already beautiful but combined with bits an pieces of Steve’s encouraging speech, it gives an uplifting sense of urgency with your life. Don’t waste it, life is short.

This is part of Steve’s speech thar is mentioned in the song.. It’s the portion of his speech that talks about life and death.

“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

If you want to read the entire transcript of his speech which is really touching. Take a look at it here.

Cameron Diaz vs Jennifer Lopez


Oh man! What we wouldn’t give to be a fly on the wall on THIS set!

Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez are busy filming the flick What To Expect When You’re Expecting together in Atlanta, but apparently, tensions are high and the two are anything but friends!

An insider reveals:

‘Cam thinks J-Lo’s a nightmare and gives movie stars a bad name. She’s even said that Jen should stick to her day job on American Idol. Jen’s constantly taking mini-breaks from the set to see her twins. She demands to eat at specific times, no matter what. So at 10:15am on the dot, she stops work and has an assistant run over to her with a small protein and veg-based meal. It’s driving Cameron crazy.’

Uh-oh! Not good!

We can certainly understand that Jen’s been through a lot recently, and we don’t blame her for wanting to spend time with her children, but if you agree to take a job, it’s not exactly very professional to upset the workday constantly with diva demands!

Here’s hoping these two can either resolve their differences, or just stay out of each other’s way as much as possible until the flick wraps!

What do U think?? Team Cameron or Team J. Lo?

Matt Damon for President?

matt damon for president
Better watch out, President Obama! We have a feeling that George Clooney would be one helluva campaign manager!

Back in February, George Clooney made it clear that he wouldn’t ever go into politics because he “f—ed too many chicks and did too many drugs.”

While we may never see George in the White House, the Ideas of Marchdirector thinks that his Ocean’s Eleven co-star Matt Damon would be a good pick for the job!

Here’s what he had to say about it:

“I guess I only throw his name out there because I’d like us to start thinking that way.”

Don’t worry, George. We’ve already got the Matt Damon political bug in our heads. We saw The Adjustment Bureau. LOLz.

What do U think? Would U like to see Mr. Damon become Mr. President???

Marc Anthony says marriage to Jennifer Lopez wasn’t going to Last!??

We’ve heard of products that are sustainable for the environment, which means they don’t deplete resources. But one thing that was not emotionally sustainable? The marriage of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, which broke down earlier this summer.

Anthony will appear on ‘Nightline’ tonight to offer his side of this much-buzzed about story and in the interview, he reveals that all the infidelity rumors are just that: Fabrications. “I’ll tell you that it wasn’t something sensationalistic happening,” Anthony, 42, said. As for those cheating charges? He said, “absolutely not.” Instead, the couple came to a crossroads and realized that it just wasn’t working. “It was a realization on both our parts. So you know it wasn’t shocking. These things happen,” he said. “It was a decision that we made jointly.”

Is it us, or does Anthony sound surprisingly okay with the dissolution of his marriage? Well, that’s because he is okay with it. “This is not a funeral. This is not a burial,” Anthony reasoned. “This is just two people who came together and just realized – and so I’m saying that it wasn’t sustainable the way it was, and that’s that.”

Anthony is holed up in his Long Island home, which he calls “Casa Marc Anthony.” Since he’s no longer Mr. Jennifer Lopez, maybe? He did say he will always love Lopez. The couple’s twins, Max and Emme, are three.

The rest of Anthony’s ‘Nightline’ interview airs tonight on ABC at 11:35PM ET

Beyonce Kanye West Jay-Z

Kanye West is one confident fellow, so confident that he is already assuring his friends that Beyonce and Jay-Z will name him godfather to their child. A source told The Sun that West is pretty much positive that Beyonce and Jay-Z will choose him to take on the role, and that he almost feels like it is his baby too since him and Jay-Z share such a close bond.

“Kanye is as excited about the baby as Beyonce and Jay-Z. He’s been saying he’s going to be godfather and is absolutely chuffed,” a source close to West said. “It will be a huge honor for him.”

Although West doesn’t have the best reputation in Hollywood, we think he would make a great godfather. When Beyonce revealed her pregnant belly at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, the cameras flashed to Jay-Z, who was grinning ear-to-ear as his pal West jumped around in excitement.

In past interviews, Nicki Minaj has also said that she wants to be the godmother of Beyonce and Jay’s bundle of joy. Can you imagine that? Having Nicki Minaj as your godmother and Kanye West as your godfather? Having famous parents is one thing, but having famous godparents too?! Family parties would be like the Grammy Awards.

PETA vs Riri for wearing an “ostrich” looking dress.


Neil Mockford, Getty Images

It’s PETA vs. Rihanna. The animal rights organization is hopping mad over one of the singer’s recent  choice of attire. RiRi wore an aqua blue top constructed of ostrich feathers while promoting her fragrance Reb’l Fleur in London last month and it was enough to ruffle PETA’s feathers.

PETA spokesperson Sandra Smiley spoke to the Daily Star in Britain, saying that RiRi wearing ostrich feathers is akin to thievery. She said, “Rihanna is flaunting stolen property, in this case feathers possibly plucked right off their rightful owner’s backs.”

This isn’t the first time that Rihanna has worn an exotic ensemble that annoied PETA. Smiley continued,”She has shown little regard for foxes, cows and reptiles. Now she’s adding birds to the list of species exploited for her dubious looks. Feathers are often ripped off chickens, geese, ostriches and emus in live plucking. This can result in gaping wounds that are sewn up with a needle and thread without anaesthetic.” Ouch. That’s enough to make us want to go naked rather than wear fur or feathers.

Still, PETA holds out hope that Rihanna will have a change of heart when it comes to her attire and they even drudged up her famous dust up with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown to drive the point home. “We keep hoping that Rihanna, a victim of violence herself, will learn to open her heart and start empathizing with the suffering of others,” Smiley said. Yeah, they went there.

Smiley finished, “That includes the animals who are beaten, gassed, electrocuted and poisoned to be turned into fashion accessories.”

When you put it like that, maybe Rihanna will go vegan, at least when it comes to her wardrobe.

Katy Perry sets another record!!

Katy Perry‘s ‘Teenage Dream’ continues to dominate the pop radio airwaves. According to Billboard, the album is the first in the 15-year history of the trade’s Adult Pop Songs chart to produce four No. 1 singles.

Perry’s latest single from the album is ‘Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),’ which follows previous numero unos ‘California Gurls,’ ‘Teenage Dream’ and ‘Firework.’ The only single that didn’t go No. 1 on this chart was ‘E.T.,’ which was lodged at No. 2 for four weeks and was unable to pass Adele‘s ‘Rolling in the Deep.’ It was a catfight on the charts!

Both Daughtry’s self-titled debut and Nickelback’s ‘All the Right Reasons’ produced three No. 1 singles on this chart and now Perry has leapfrogged over them. She is the woman! Hear her roar! (To continue our feline metaphor, which stems from the fact that Perry has released her own fragrance, dubbed Purr.)

Two weeks ago, when ‘Last Friday Night’ topped the Billboard Hot 100, it was Perry’s fifth single to do so. Perry became the first female artist to achieve that accolade in the chart’s 53-year history. She is tied with Michael Jackson‘s ‘Bad,’ which also produced five chart-toppers.

Can Perry pass Jacko by producing a sixth No. 1 from ‘Teenage Dream’? That’s a question for the Capitol Records/EMI promotion staff, which is responsible for pushing Perry’s albums to program directors and onto the airwaves.

Justin Bieber Involved in a Car Crash in L.A

The Biebs had a bender … A fender bender that is. Justin Bieber, 17, was involved in a minor car crash in L.A. earlier today, so says TMZ, who were informed by the LAPD. It wasn’t even a crash as much as it was an “Ooops” moment.

Want the good news? No one was hurt. Not The Biebs. Not the driver of the other car. Not any pedestrians. So all the Beliebers need to put away the rosaries, since there is no need to pray novenas as the singer is fine and dandy.

Here’s what happened: A Honda collided with a posh-as-hell Ferrari being driven by Bieber. Maybe “collide” is too strong of a word, since sources say that the Honda merely “tapped” the Ferrari and there was no damage or exchange of insurance information.

However, The Biebs still called the cops, just to be on the safe side. The police assessed that there wasn’t enough damage to even file a report. There’s your tax dollars at work, Angelinos!

Oh, and about that Ferrari. Turns out that The Biebs doesn’t even own the vehicle. At least he’s not returning it all dented and dinged.

We’re glad to hear that The Biebs is safe, sound and was not injured in the fender bender.

Rick ross and Kreayshawn Have a Verbal Showdown at VMAS 2011

Rick Ross Kreayshawn

While everything went smooth onstage at the MTV Video Music Awards, backstage was a whole another story. RapperRick Ross went toe-to-toe with pint-sized rap newbie Kreayshawn and things got a little uncomfortable.

Rozay (and his entourage) had a few things to say to the ‘Gucci Gucci’ rapper for dissing him in a freestyle, then apologizing, then insulting him about his weight in a video posted on Ustream last week. The two parties collided backstage Sunday at the VMAs and started a verbal shouting match — luckily, no fists were thrown.

In the mix of it all, Kreayshawn is standing behind her manager Stretch as he defended his client against Ross’ taunts and his hulking bodyguard. “Oh my god — VMA wildness,” the female rapper said during the fracas. “Nobody likes Kreayshawn, but it’s OK. We all have fun. We all have fun out here. Things are getting a little too serious, though. We had some jokes.” Uh, judging by the video, no one was laughing, especially Ross.

Incredibly, in an interview with Billboard, Kreayshawn chalked up their verbal sparring match as gang violence. “Yeah I don’t know, man. It’s just gang violence,” she says. “All that gang stuff I’m not a part of that.”

Really, Kreayshawn? Is that your explanation behind the rumble backstage at the VMAs? We don’t want to say anymore about this incident because we have to remain objective here. But for future reference Kray-Kray, please stick to rapping and not starting beefs.

Charlie Sheen buys a House for Denise Richards and she Rejects!


Guess which newly released out of rehab momma is next in line for the digs?

Despite their differences and Charlie Sheen’s crazy, Denise Richardshas tried to be very respectful of Charlie in the media. She doesn’t bash him, she doesn’t attack him over the stunts that he pulls. Simply put, she’s remained very classy when talking about her ex and the father of her girls, even though he’s put them all through hell.

Still, kindess can only go so far and people have their limits. Which is why we weren’t a bit surprised to hear that Denise decided not to accept the massive gift Charlie bought for her and their kids – a huge house six doors down from his own. That just sounds like an awful R-rated sitcom in the making.

Instead, Denise will be returning to the home most people will remember from her short-lived reality show. She bought it for herself awhile back and now, she’ll be moving back into it. Sources say that for the time being, she’s rented a house down the street as it’s under renovations, but she should be able to move her girls in by next month.

Hope you like prime real estate close to Charlie, Brooke Mueller. Sounds like you’re getting a swinging new pag!

Best Friends Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock team up for an Animated series


This certainly isn’t going to help those rumors that they’re hooking up!

Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock will reportedly be re-teaming for their next project, although it’s coming to TV – and they’ll only be lending their voices!

The two will be joining the cast of the animated comedy And Then There Was Gordon, which Reynolds also co-wrote and produced with Allan Loeb, and centers on a young boy whose siblings are prodigies. FOX has ordered a presentation of the series.

Apparently, Sandra will serve as an executive producer, and will alsoprovide the voice of the main character’s neurotic mother.

Oh man! This sounds pretty HIGHlarious!

Not to mention, it would fit right in with Fox’s Simpsons/Family Guy line-up!

We’re very curious to see what comes of this!

What do U think?? Will U tune into And Then There Was Gordon?

Call it whatever you want, but that sounds like love to us! That’s a effin long flight to make just for dinner! She MUST like the guy!

In celebrating her 24th birthday, Blake Lively decided to take off to Australia this past weekend to be with her boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprioin Sydney. Leo is down under filming The Great Gatsby, but he made time for his girl in the evening, taking her to special, romantic dinner.

The couple were spotted making eyes and ordering wine at the Sydney hotspot Aria on Sunday night. You would think the pair would want to be discreet, but instead, they took the best table in the house – a window booth overlooking Sydney Harbor. Other patrons spotted the pair instantly and report that Blake looked “gorgeous” and that they both “looked very much like a couple”.

Very sweet!

Balls in your court now, Leo. Make sure you make a trip out to NYC to see her next! Keep the love alive!

Beyonce’s Baby news made Twitter History.

Beyonce‘s baby news was a big deal in the digital space. In fact, it was record-breaking news. The Telegraph reports that a record 8,868 tweets per second were sent after the singer debuted her bulging belly at the 2011 VMAs on Sunday night. The record was previously was set during the women’s World Cup earlier this year when Japan battled America. At that time, 7,196 tweets were sent per second!

Women’s soccer? Pft. That’s got nothing on the fact that Beyonce is going to be a mommy!

While it seems that the much of the free world was posting tweets about the bun in Bey’s oven, the signer herself has yet to issue a single tweet about the matter via her @beyonce handle. Since her big reveal, she has not utilized her personal Twitter account to discuss being preggers.

At this point, it’s like why bother? Everyone else is already talking for her. She can use her hands to pat that beautiful belly as opposed to using her thumbs to tweet messages to the fans!

Beyonce is reportedly around four months along. This is her first pregnancy.

Beyonce’s filming has been Postponed due to Baby Bump?


Kevin Winter, Getty Images

Beyonce debuted her baby bump at last night’s VMAs and while much of the world was shocked at the big reveal and subsequently elated for the diva, the career consequences of the bun in the oven are starting to materialize. Deadlinereports that the shooting schedule for the Beyonce-starring remake of ‘A Star Is Born’ could be pushed back in order to accommodate the star’s delicate condition.

Deadline revealed that Warner Bros. was hoping to begin production on the film, to be directed by Clint Eastwood, by February of 2012. With Beyonce expecting, that goal seems highly unrealistic. However, the star’s pregnancy does have an upside in that it gives the studio more time to find a suitable male lead. Leonard DiCaprio was the director’s first choice, but he is not available. Other names that were bandied about to play opposite of Bey were Will Smith and Christian Bale. While both actors would probably have great onscreen chemistry with Beyonce, nothing has been settled or set in stone yet.

This film could be the one that puts her on the map, movie-wise. She is already a musical superstar and her film roles, as Etta James in ‘Cadillac Records’ and as Deena Jones in ‘Dreamgirls,’ were respectable turns, but failed to transform her into a bonafide movie star.

Congrats once again to Bey and hubby Jay-Z as they await the birth of their first child. We found it adorable how Beyonce kept cradling her tummy while posing on the black carpet and while performing. It was maternal instinct, no doubt. She also didn’t miss a step or a beat during her performance, despite her delicate condition.

Demi Lovato Defends Weight Gain

After getting treatment for bulimia, Demi Lovato has been sporting a healthier figure, but some criticized the 19-year-old for her weight after appearing at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. Despite their negative words, the singer is not letting the haters get the best of her.

“I’ve gained weight. Get over it,” she tweeted last night. “That’s what happens when you get out of treatment for AN EATING DISORDER.”

Lovato subsequently deleted the message, but added: “Guess what? I’m healthy and happy, and if you’re hating on my weight you obviously aren’t. : ) #UNBROKEN.”

The ‘Skyscraper’ singer wore a curve-hugging mini-dress to the VMAs where she presented the award for Best Collaboration with Chord Overstreet. After taking to Twitter to fight back against critics, actress Ashley Greene, sent Lovato a supportive message, reminding the former ‘Sonny With a Chance’ star that she’s “beautiful.”

“This is why you’re my friend,” Lovato replied to the ‘Twilight’ star. “Thank you girl.” It looks like Joe Jonas‘ exes are getting along just fine.

In October 2010, Lovato entered a treatment facility to address her physical and emotional issues. She left the center in January and has since released her chart-topping single, ‘Skyscraper,’ and recorded her third full-length album, ‘Unbroken,’ which is set to drop on Sept. 20.

Katy Perry wins 2 Moonmen and is Lovey Dovey with Hubby at VMAS 2011


Christopher Polk, Getty Images

While the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards turned out to be Katy Perry‘s night, she still treated the big event like a public date night with husband Russell Brand. After all, the pink-haired ‘Firework’ singer did need some help carrying her two Moonmen statues home, right?

Perry, 26, married Brand, 36, just under a year ago and the newlyweds AKA Hollywood power couple remain inseparable. Us Weekly reports that “Russell and Katy were by each other’s side all night,” with a source confirming that the lovey dovey couple “had their arms linked and their hands intertwined. They seemed really happy and were just smiling and beaming at each other.”

The Brands’ PDAs extended beyond the clasping of hands and arms. “They were whispering in each other’s ears and giggling — it looked like they had private jokes to share,” the source also said. This doesn’t seem like any sort of “revelation,” as Perry and Brand are young, happy and madly in love enough to be married!

However, Brand did beam with pride when his bride notched her first award. The source said the comedian looked “genuinely touched, almost tearful,” while Perry was just as proud of her man when he took the stage to deliver an impassioned speech about his late friend Amy Winehouse before the musical tribute to the singer.

Perry even addressed how Brand handled the tribute, telling the press that “not only was he providing the beautiful color palette that Amy was, but also providing a realistic point of view and giving hope to anybody out there that felt like they needed hope.”

Perry paid her hubby another compliment, saying, “I thought it was really well-rounded and smart, and that’s why I married him. He is smart and I learn a lot.”

Aw, you guys! So in love, so fashionable and so famous.

Britney Spears is putting the kibosh on all of the rumors surrounding her next single off of ‘Femme Fatale.’ Even though people have talked about ‘(Drop Dead) Beautiful,’ ‘Inside Out’ and ‘Trouble for Me’ being released next, Spears herself confirmed to MTV that she is actually releasing ‘Criminal’ as her next single and video.

During the interview, a reporter asked Spears if she had “any plans for a new video [or] another single.” A smiley Spears coyly replied, “Yes … I don’t know if I’m at liberty to tell, but, um, I will anyways. It’s ‘Criminal.’” Spears then went on to explain why she chose the song as her next single, trying to find the words as she said, “Actually, when I first heard it, it’s just different … Nothing I’ve heard like this before.”

According to MuuMuse, Spears’ fans were able to take a poll on Facebook in order to vote on which song Brit should release as her next single. ‘Criminal’ won over ‘Inside Out’ and ‘(Drop Dead) Beautiful’ on the poll, and what Britney fans want, Britney fans get. We can’t wait to see what the video will look like! More dancing this time, please!

Lauren Alaina Accepts Marriage Proposal

Sorry, guys. It looks like Lauren Alaina is off the market — well, she was for one day, at least. The ‘American Idol‘ runner-up accepted a “marriage” proposal from a 17-year-old fan, with the stipulation that it was just for the night.

During a meet-and-greet behind the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, R.I. on Saturday, Zack Tremblay dropped to one knee and asked Alaina to marry him. The ‘Idol’ alum looked legitimately shocked, and paced a bit while looking at her adorer, who sadly didn’t have a ring to offer her.

“I’ll marry you for tonight. Just for the night,” she bartered in front of a small crowd. “I’ve never had this happen before.”

The 16-year-old singer was in town for the American Idols Live! tour, along with her fellow Season 10 contestants. Tremblay was one of many fans who waited to catch a glimpse of the star behind the venue. “I think I just died,” the North Providence native said to his friends before posing for pictures with his temporary bride.

Although their relationship was fleeting, the young fan had high hopes. “If today goes well,” he added, “why not for the rest of my life?” Hey, it doesn’t hurt to dream.

Hillary Duff get’s $100,000 for not starring in  film!! Whoooaa

Hilary Duff

Now that’s what we call a severance package!

According to sources, Hilary Duff has a play-or-pay contract. That means, if she doesn’t end up working after the contracts are signed, she still gets paid.

So after being fired from Bonnie and Clyde for being all preggers she’s been paid $100,000. Maybe she’ll set up a college fund for the baby.

As far as a replacement is concerned, Amanda Seyfried was approached but turned down the role.

When asked about the whole situation, Duff simply replied:

“I dont wanna give them any more press than they’ve already gotten off me … I think ‘baby’ is a little bit more exciting.”

While getting $100,000 for getting FIRED is always exciting, we can definitely agree, a new baby is super exciting.

Amy Winehouse: No Illegal Drugs found during Toxicology

Amy Winehouse

It’s been 1 month since the passing of Amy Winehouse, where she was found dead in her bed in her London home. The Rehab singer’s toxicology reports that there no drugs in her system. Due to the singer’s public battles with drugs and alcohol, it was almost a foregone conclusion that she had overdosed.  While no drugs were found, there was alcohol present in her system but it has yet to be determined if it factored into her death.

A statement released by spokesman Chris Goodman on the Winehouse family’s behalf read as follows: “Toxicology results returned to the Winehouse family by authorities have confirmed that there were no illegal substances in Amy’s system at the time of her death.” A full investigation into the cause of death is set to begin in October.

There were many rumors and reports about what caused or could have caused the singer’s tragic death. Some reports stated she partied hard and bought illicit substances then night before, while others indicated she may have died ofalcohol withdrawal, since she was said to be in the process of beating her alcohol addiction, but that the battle was fraught with relapses.

Mitch Winehouse told mourners at the singer’s July 26 funeral that she had said to him, “Dad I’ve had enough of drinking, I can’t stand the look on your and the family’s faces anymore.”

Mr. Winehouse is currently working on establishing the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which will assist others who struggle with addiction as Amy did. Those plans are on hold while he deals with wrestling the already registered name away from its owner.

Move over Marge, Patty, Selma, Lisa and Maggie, because Lady Gaga is headed to Springfield to guest on an episode of the 23rd season of ‘The Simpsons.’ Yeardley Smith, who voices brainy character Lisa Simpson, toldBroadway.com that Gaga will appear as herself on the animated series.

Smith said she returned to Los Angeles yesterday, Aug. 22, to record the episode with Gaga. The episode is titled “Lisa Goes Gaga.”

“This is extraordinary! I’m stunned that she has time in her schedule that she’s coming to our studio to record,” Smith said.

Gaga has carved time  in her schedule for practically every media outlet known to man, and appearing on ‘The Simpsons’ felt like the one thing she has yet to do, but should. The only thing that Gaga hasn’t done during the ‘Born This Way’ press blitz is ‘Sesame Street’ so perhaps that’s next on her docket? Mother Monster vs. Cookie Monster? Okay, we’re getting ahead of ourselves here. Remember Katy Perry did it — despite never being aired.

Smith said that Gaga will play herself and that the show’s writers describe her as “the happiest, most optimistic person in the world. She comes to Springfield to try to cheer up Lisa, but she can’t.” If Lady Gaga can’t bring a smile to the face of little Lisa Simpson, who is the show’s voice of reason, no one can! More importantly, what will the animated Gaga wear in her ‘Simpsons’ turn? And how will she interact with Homer, if at all? Could you imagine that exchange?

“I make music, but I don’t do voice-overs every day of the week, and their characters are so awesomely convincing and sincere and wild and funny, I had to remind myself constantly of the sincerity of the humor,” Gaga told EW about her guest spot.  “That’s what I was trying to focus on, not putting on a character too much and really being as sincere as I could with the lines.”

She also dubbed her guest spot  “one of the coolest things I’ve ever done.” She also said that Papa Germanotta is “probably going to do 80 backflips when the episode comes out.” We take it he’s a big fan of ‘The Simpsons.’

Technically, the character of Gaga has appeared on the series before, as Elton John’s date to the Golden Globes (pictured above). But Gaga did not voice herself in that episode, so this is her first “official” appearance.

No word as to when this episode of ‘The Simpsons’ will air.

Kelly Clarkson tells Entertainment Weekly she felt like she was “robbed” when some of her unreleased recordings surfaced online in May and then again in July.

“Oh my God, have you ever been robbed? I have. I’ve been physically robbed a couple of times, but this is much worse,” she says of returning from a vacation in Tahiti and finding several unreleased tracks online. Though Clarksonwrote on her blog, “No point in getting angry because there’s nothing I can do so I hope y’all like the music,” it turns out she really was upset, as she tells EW now:

“Those songs came out and people are like, ‘Oh my God, what direction is Kelly going?’ I think what made me mad was that: 1) People stole from me, and 2): Everybody had no idea what my next album was going to sound like. That really caused a lot of confusion.”

Clarkson says all of the leaked songs were unfinished demos, many of which were songs she wrote for other artists and had no intention of recording herself: “There are songs out there that are from eight or 10 years ago … People are always asking me to write for other artists. They’re awesome songs, [but] they’re just not songs I would normally sing.”

The Season 1 ‘American Idol‘ winner is finally ready to release her fifth album, ‘Stronger,’ which hits stores Oct. 25. Clarkson acknowledges that a couple of the leaked demos will appear on the record in their finished, polished form.

Selena Gomez wants to swap Singing/Acting Career for Fashion Line!

We can’t imagine Hollywood without Selena Gomez. The multi-talented 19-year-old is on the A-list of Tinsel Town’s hottest young stars and is going out with mega-famous 17-year-old Justin Bieber. So imagine our shock when we heard whispers that she was going to leave a red hot career behind her tofocus all her energy on fashion!

We all know Selena’s talents go beyond the stage and screen. Not too long ago, she paired up with Kmart to develop her own fashion line, Dream Out Loud, that offered cute and affordable clothes for young girls. The success of the line has made Selena start thinking about expanding her fashionhorizons, but dispelled rumors that she’s leaving the limelight anytime soon!

“I think right now, and the time that I am with my generation, I definitely feel that K-Mart is the best choice for me, because obviously, they can capture my line the way I want it and the prices can stay at a minimum,” she told Racked.com. “But, one day, I would love to maybe do a high-end fashion line. That would be really fun.”

Phew! We’re glad to hear she’s not leaving the spotlight anytime soon, but she definitely has her eye on other celebs and the kind of style she hopes to emulate in her clothing when the time is right!

“I really love Sarah Jessica Parker‘s style—like her casual style,” she said. “Her red carpet style is totally hers and individual. I don’t know if I could pull off half of the things she wears. But, her everyday style is really kind of preppy mixed in with boho and it’s really so pretty.”

We love that idea! Would you wear clothes designed by Selena? Let us know in the comments!

Fans worldwide wondered just who the pretty brunette was who was holding hands with Daniel Radcliffe in New York on Tuesday. The U.K.’s Daily Mail has identified her Rosanne Coker.

Coker, 22, first met Radcliffe, also 22, when she worked as a production assistant on “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” back in 2007. They went on to work together on the final two “Potter” films, plus “The Woman in Black,” out in 2012.

The British beauty, who began dating the star about a year ago, is the daughter of successful painter-decorator Malcolm Coker. Coker opened up to the Daily Mail about his daughter’s high-profile guy, saying, “They would really prefer to keep things quiet,” Coker said. “But Rosanne has worked on the last three ‘Harry Potter’ films, so she and Daniel have known each other quite a long time. But they have been going out for just over a year now. I have met Daniel, and he is a lovely guy. I’m just really happy for Rosanne, and as long as she is happy that is all that matters to me.”

The couple reportedly splits their time between her family’s home in Surrey and Radcliffe’s posh New York apartment.

“They have a lot of fun together, and at their age, what more could you ask? Who knows where it is going to lead?” Coker added.

Although Radcliffe didn’t reveal Coker’s identity at the time, he told Larry King in July, “I’ve got a girlfriend at the moment who I am very much in love with. So you know, we’ll see where that goes.”
