Well, there's at least one member of the Kennedy clan who is not a fan of Taylor Swift. Victoria Gifford Kennedy, the mother of the bride in the Kennedy family wedding that Taylor and her boyfriend Conor Kennedy attended Saturday in Boston, has said some not-so-flattering things about the country cutie, including that Swift crashed her daughter Kyle's big day! Kennedy, who goes by Vicki, is the widow of the late Michael Kennedy, who died in a skiing accident in 1997, and was the son of Robert F. and Ethel Kennedy. She's also the aunt of 18-year-old Conor, the offspring of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (he's the son of Bobby and Ethel), and the late Mary Kennedy, who committed suicide in May. Are you still with me? Anyway, Vicki herself has revealed details to The Boston Herald. According to her, Conor had never RSVPed to the family bash, so she didn't expect her nephew, much less his spotlight-stealing girlfriend. "They texted me an hour before the wedding and asked if they could come,"Read More »from The one Kennedy who isn’t a fan of Taylor Swift

As One Direction's Zayn Malik prepared to shut down his Twitter account for good yesterday, he spent his final 280 characters to call out the 1D haters on the social network.
"The reason i don't tweet as much as i use to, is because I'm sick of all the useless opinions and hate that i get daily goodbye twitter :)" he wrote, following up with "My fans that have something nice to say can tweet me on the one direction account , :) x"
The tweets can't be found online now, of course, because soon after those messages went out, the account @zaynmalik ceased to exist.
If there are two things that are true about One Direction fans, it's that they're really devout, and they're social media savvy. So when the British boy band members do something their fans don't like, most often involving going off the market and naming a girlfriend, all kinds of anger gets unleashed into the Twitterverse.Read More »from Zayn Malik of One Direction quits Twitter

August 20 marks a major milestone for Demi Lovato: It's her 20th birthday. To say it's been a wild ride for the one-time Disney kid is an understatement. The truth is, she's faced more personal obstacles than anyone her age should endure. But not only has Lovato come out "Unbroken," she has come out … on top.
In less than a month, Lovato will be going prime time as a judge on the newly revamped "The X Factor," for which she was hand selected by Simon Cowell. A lot of people wanted Lovato's job, but Cowell — who knows a little something about helping people achieve superstardom — took a chance on her. Now she's chumming around with fellow judge Britney Spears, playfully sparring with Cowell in the press, and potentially making or breaking the careers of aspiring singers hoping to follow in her footsteps.
"The X Factor" is only part of Lovato's recent professional success. Her single "Give Your Heart a Break" off her latest album, Unbroken, has become her biggest radio hit to date. The song, which has sold over 1 million digital copies, was certified Platinum last week. This year she's also performed on several shows, including "American Idol" and "Good Morning America," and was tapped to co-host the "Teen Choice Awards" in July. Later this year she'll be getting the "Glee" treatment. Series creator Ryan Murphy announced the show will be covering one of her songs during the upcoming season.Read More »from Birthday girl Demi Lovato: A real comeback kid

It's not easy being Justin Bieber! The 18-year-old pop star, who's become one of the biggest names in Hollywood since he was discovered on YouTube in 2007, talks candidly about the downside of his phenomenal fame in a new interview with Vibe magazine. "What does that really mean, 'to be famous'?" Bieber mused. "In general, fame can tear you apart, so you can never really feel like you're famous. When people start acting like they're famous, that's when they start losing it." For the record, Bieber and his famous girlfriend Selena Gomez are often photographed doing pretty normal things, like eating at IHOP, catching a movie, or visiting his family in Canada, although they've also been seen taking a helicopter ride and renting out the Staples Center in L.A. for a private screening of "Titanic."
Since Bieber makes headlines frequently, the "As Long As You Love Me" singer admits that celebrity has made him more reluctant to share details about himself. "I don't like giving too much personal information about where I live and the cars I drive. ... There are a lot of people in this world that aren't good people, and all they need to do is a little research and then they can [exploit you]," he says. "People hiding in garbage cans overnight to catch [pictures] of me; crazy things happen. You can't give out too much personal information."Read More »from Justin Bieber: ‘Fame can tear you apart’

Could Kristen Stewart and her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders be working together again ... soon? The married 41-year-old married Sanders and the 22-year-old actress were photographed kissing and canoodling on July 17, which prompted Stewart to issue that now famous public apology to her boyfriend and "Twilight" co-star Robert Pattinson. Sanders also apologized to wife Liberty Ross and his two young children. (Calm down, Twi-hards! I know it makes you mad just thinking about it….) Then Wednesday, the usually reliable Hollywood Reporter wrote that Stewart had been dropped from a starring role in the much talked about sequel to "Snow White," which brought in $389 million worldwide at the box office. The next movie in the fairy tale franchise is "being reconceived as a spin-off movie" about the Huntsman, played by Chris Hemsworth, which was originally the plan for the third "Snow White" movie, sources told THR. However, the Los Angeles Times reported later that the studio behind the film, Universal, insists that "Stewart's Snow White could still be a character in that film." While there's no director on board for the sequel yet, Sanders "remains on the list of possible director candidates," according to the newspaper. So, it's somewhat of a long shot, but the reteaming of KStew and Sanders is still a possibility.Read More »from Will Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders work together on ‘Snow White’ sequel?

Does cutting off your hair mean you're crazy?
It's no secret that in Hollywood, you are what you look like. Celebrities rely on their bodies, skin, face, and clothes in order to be recognizable and desirable to their fans. That's why we freak out so much when one of them drastically changes their look. Especially, it seems, when it comes to their hair.
Miley Cyrus is the latest to chop off her locks, sending blogosphere and the Twitterverse into a frizzy tizzy. Looking through Cyrus' Twitter feed, she seems pretty excited about the new 'do ("feeling so happy in my skin," she wrote, along with several posts of cute photos of herself looking downright blissful), even though there's evidence that not all of her fans are pleased with the cut.Read More »from Miley Cyrus gets a new short ‘do — see other starlets who went short

"Pretty Little Liars" actress Lucy Hale has revealed that like so many starlets before her, she's struggled with an eating disorder. In an interview in the September issue of Cosmopolitan, the 23-year-old who began her career on the short-lived reality TV competition "American Juniors" when she was 14, candidly explained her battle. "I've never really talked about this, but I would go days without eating," Hale told the magazine. "Or maybe I'd have some fruit and then go to the gym for three hours. I knew I had a problem ... It was a gradual process but I changed myself."
Unfortunately, this is a story we've heard too many times.
Women in Hollywood as far back as a teenage Judy Garland have suffered from eating disorders. In 1983, 32-year-old singer Karen Carpenter's death from anorexia — in which patients severely reduce their intake of food because of a distorted body image — made the term a household name. In the following decades, celebrities such as Tracey Gold of "Growing Pains," Candace Cameron of "Full House," Kelly Clarkson, Mary-Kate Olsen, Demi Lovato, and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi have opened up about their experiences with either anorexia or bulimia, in which a person binges then purges their food. Portia de Rossi detailed how both disorders affected her as a young model in her 2010 memoir, Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain. "Ever since I was 12 years old, I would starve myself daily and then binge after the job was over," she told "Good Morning America," adding that her goal was to eat 300 calories per day. "And that was just the diet I returned to every single time I needed to lose weight."Read More »from Lucy Hale is the latest young woman in Hollywood to reveal an eating disorder

"The Hills" gang is all grown up! And to prove it, the former MTV show's resident bad girl Kristin Cavallari, 25, just gave birth to her first child, son Camden Jack Cutler. Dad is Cavallari's fiance, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, 29. "We are thrilled to welcome Camden Jack Cutler into the world," Cavallari wrote on Twitter on Wednesday. "He was born this morning weighing 7lbs 9oz. Everyone is doing great!" According to what Cavallari's said in the past, a problem-free birth is a sign that more little Cutlers will be on the way soon. "We're talking about the possibility of having another kid right away and then getting married so we can have two kids close in age," she revealed to Glamaholic magazine in March. "We want four kids, so we're thinking have one more, then get married, then have two more, but we'll see. It all depends on how the first one goes."Read More »from Catching up with the cast of ‘The Hills’ as Kristin Cavallari becomes a mom

- Boo George/TEEN VOGUE
Just like her uber-famous boyfriend Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez is ready to be thought of as more than just a squeaky-clean tween star. As the 20-year-old reveals in the new issue of Teen Vogue, she's itching to expand her resume beyond movies, shows, and albums aimed at kids. "It's frustrating whenever I want the roles that no one's even thinking about me for, and being like, 'No,' with all these other ones," she tells the magazine. "Being part of the Disney Channel was such a blessing, and I'm super happy with what ['Wizards of Waverly Place'] accomplished, but acting is something I would like to take on more seriously." Gomez's credits include projects like 2010's family-friendly "Ramona and Beezus," and guest roles on shows such as Miley Cyrus' "Hannah Montana," beginning with work on the kiddie program "Barney & Friends" when she was 7. However, Gomez admits that she still has a lot to do in Hollywood. "I don't necessarily feel accomplished. I want to create a whole different persona when it comes to acting."Read More »from Selena Gomez: Marriage will have to wait
