"Changes oh changes."
Not long after singer Ricky Martin came out as gay back in 2010 we began to hear reports that he and his longtime partner Carlos Gonzalez Abella were planning to get married. The couple never did make it down the aisle but they remained a seemingly happy family together with their two sons Matteo and Valentino Martin. Today we are hearing that the couple have reportedly broken up. Ricky seemed to be telling the world that he and Carlos had split right before New Year’s and Martin‘s publicist has reportedly confirmed the news. After many, many years together … it would appear that Ricky and Carlos are over and dunzo. More »
Love Is Dead
Back in September we learned that young popstars Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes of The Wanted had found true and lasting love and started dating. A couple of weeks ago, there were whispers that the pair’s relationship had cooled but because so many of us want desperately to believe in the power of true love, those whispers were dismissed as falsities (OK, maybe it was just me but I’ve been in a fragile place emotionally for some time now and I have to hold on to hope wherever I can find it, please don’t judge me too harshly). And so, it is with the heaviest of hearts that I must pass along the information that Ariana and Nathan‘s love affair has, in fact, come to a sad end. There is nothing to believe in anymore. Love is truly dead. More »
Might Ryan get back together with Rachel McAdams?
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes were pretty hot and heavy for most of 2012 leading up to the release of their film together The Place Beyond the Pines, which was released back in March of this year. The couple were even reportedly close to gettin’ engaged to be hitched at one point. Since then, tho, we haven’t really heard much about the couple nor have we seen evidence of their continued relationship out in public. As I understand it, Ryan and Eva are still together but it is being reported that they are on a bit of a break as they reevaluate the strength of their lurve … or so the rumors say. At this point, it doesn’t seem that Ryan Gosling is single again … but it sounds like he may be soon. HMMM. More »

After 10 Years of Marriage :(
Very sad news to pass along today as we learn that actors Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have decided to end their marriage of 10 years. As you may know, the pair met and fell in love on Broadway when they both starred in Rent back in the mid-90s and have, for all intents and purposes, been the model of a perfect, loving couple. What I always loved about these two was how honest they have always been about the ups and downs of their relationship. They may have looked perfect but like every other couple out there, they simply weren’t perfect. Even still, I always believed that these two would be together forever. I’m very sad to see that I was wrong :( More »

Rumor Has It ...
Remember a couple of weeks ago when we saw those photos of Madonna chillin’ in Haiti with her ex-husband (and true love of her life) Sean Penn and I wondered aloud where Maddy‘s younger boyfriend Brahim Zaibat was? Well, I guess that question is now a moot point because according to Gossip Cop, Madonna and Brahim have broken off their three year relationship. At this point, there is no official confirmation from the couple about this reported split nor do we know a reason for the break-up but considering the source’s excellent reputation of truth in reporting, I’m willing to believe the claim that Maddy and Brahim are dunzo.

"‘I realised it was finished for good in 2008"
Back in August of 2012 the Spice Girls reunited for a stellar performance during the Closing Ceremonies of Summer Olympics in London, England and at the time, there was renewed talk that the girl group might get back together for a reunion tour … or something. Even back then, tho, it didn’t seem like Victoria Beckham would be interested in reuniting with her fellow Spice Girls ever again. Today we get confirmation that she is out. In an new interview, Vicki B. reveals the moment when she realized that she was done with being a Spice and makes it painfully clear that she is forever done with being in the Spice Girls group.

Peace the Spork Out
And so … the end of an era has come and gone. Last night at 10 PM ET, the music site turntable.fm shut down completely for good. Some of you might remember that I spent quite a LOT of time playing around on Turntable a couple of years ago when the site had newly launched. Occasional usage turned into bona fide obsession as I would spend hours on the site for weeks on end playing music as a virtual DJ (I even lived a short time as Deadmau5) with friends and strangers who would eventually become friends themselves. For various reasons, I didn’t spend much time on the site in the past year or so but I would pop in from time to time to say hello to my online friends who hung out there daily. I learned a few days ago that Turntable was shutting down for good and, well, I had to go back to play a couple of songs and say my goodbyes before the site went away forever. More »

Just Don't Do It
Earlier this year it was announced that Kanye West was planning to collaborate with Nike on the creation of a pair of shoes that would, it was hoped, set the shoe game on fire. Kanye previously collaborated with Louis Vuitton on a line of expensive sneakers and enjoyed success there so it was assumed that this new collab with Nike would be, at the very least, just as successful. Then Kanye started bad-mouthing Nike publicly in concert and rumors started to circulate suggesting that Kanye was planning to dump Nike and collaborate with a different shoe company. Last night, in a radio interview, Kanye confirmed that he is no longer working with Nike because he signed a deal with adidas. More »
"It might not have been the best decision."
Last month we learned that Jessica Lange is leaving American Horror Story after season 4 next year and today we learn exactly why she made the decision to leave the series. From the start, Lange has been an integral part of AHS‘s success and I, personally, fall more and more in love with her with each new episode she appears in. Entertainment Weekly magazine, which is showcasing the current season AHS: Coven on their cover this week, spoke with Lange about her decision to leave the show … click below to read what she had to say.

BUT, it will be rebooted in Las Vegas in 2015
Remember when we got all excited/worried that Julie Taymor signed on to direct a Broadway musical based on the adventures of Spider-Man but things started to go terribly wrong when players were getting injured so severely in previews that they had to quit the production and the show had to go dark for a week so that it could be revamped? Then Taymor got fired and the show re-opened and finally found box office success (and, thankfully, no more injuries)? Yeah, well, the Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark story is about to come to a close. Due to declining ticket sales, the show will close on Broadway in January. Plans are in the works to adapt the stage production for Las Vegas, where producers feel the show can find new life … but Spider-Man‘s time on the Great White Way is about to come to a final end.
