We feel like the subtitle of Nick Jonas' new music video could really be called "Nick Jonas Goes to Burning Man" -- because that's basically what it looks like is going on in "Chains (The Wynwood Walls Edition)."
Think you already saw a video for "Chains" back in July? You'd be right. The Jo Bro released a very brooding music video of the same song over the summer. We think the "Jealous" hit-maker wanted to release a wilder more vibrant visual offering for this legion of fans now that he's a chart-topping star.
From the light-up bug cars (reminiscent of the Disney's Main Street Electrical Parade) to the painted ladies and dance parties -- the vid is a carnival for the eyes. Check out the vid -- we definitely prefer the first one. It's so dark and moody -- just the way we like our favorite Jonas!

It appears as though Kylie Jenner made a copy of Kim Kardashian's house keys, because this denim on denim ensemble looks like something straight from her sister's closet. Kylie gave us a peek at her fit physique last month in a sexy bikini shoot, and while her body looks great here, we think she could have picked a more flattering getup!
Kylie went shopping at Nasty Gal and Fred Segal in West Hollywood on Tuesday, and after that she headed to a pal's house. She may be 17, but between dating a 25-year-old rapper, buying her own house and not going to school, her life is anything but that of a normal teen.
We also noticed that Kylie accessorized with a fancy Audemars Piguet watch, which was reportedly a gift from boyfriend Tyga. And the funny thing is, she recently got in a big feud with Tyga's ex/baby mama Blac Chyna over the pricey timepiece! Last week Blac posted a pic of herself wearing the exact same diamond-encrusted bauble (which was a gift from Tyga back in 2013) and she wrote "#BlacLove." Of course, just five hours later Kylie Instagrammed a photo of herself wearing the watch and wrote, "Currently." Burn!

Fight on, sk8tergirl!
Avril Lavigne just revealed that she's secretly been battling Lyme disease in the new issue of People, and the singer admits that she spent months being frightened because she had no idea what was wrong with her.
The "Complicated" songstress recalled spending her 30th birthday in Vegas, and not being able to keep up with her friends due to a lack of energy. "I could barely eat, and when we went to the pool, I had to leave and go lie in bed. My friends asked, 'What's wrong?' I didn't know," she explained to the mag.
After spending months feeling lethargic and lightheaded, doctors were finally able to diagnose her illness. "I had no idea a bug bite could do this. I was bedridden for five months. I felt like I couldn't breathe, I couldn't talk and I couldn't move. I thought I was dying," she confessed.
The Canadian pop star's mother moved in with her in Ontario to help her recover, and now she's about eighty percent better. Not that it's been all smooth sailing, though! "There were definitely times I couldn't shower for a full week because I could barely stand. It felt like having all your life sucked out of you," she admitted.
The blonde beauty got through the tough times with the support of her fans. "They were asking about me since I was MIA, so I mentioned to one fan directly that I wasn't feeling good. The get-well messages and videos they sent touched me so deeply," she added.
She should team up with Yolanda Foster to help find a cure!

Ashlee Simpson is one happy pregnant lady!
The expecting mom looked radiant as she took a stroll with her hubby Evan Ross and son Bronx Mowgli, whose father is Pete Wentz, in Toluca Lake, Calif. Bronx looks like he's having a blast with his step dad.
We have a feeling these two are going to be great parents to Baby Girl Ross!
For the outing, Ash wore a maxi dress, navy coat and ankle booties. Evan looked disheveled with a grey shirt, stained grey jeans and high top sneaks. Lil' Bronx wore a pizza-tastic t-shirt that we wish we had. We want pizza all day, every day!
The parents-to-be were married at the Diana Ross' home in Greenwich, Connecticut in August. Shortly after, Ashlee found out she was expecting on Thanksgiving Day.
The 30-year-old is due to welcome her first daughter in the summer.

Last night Kendall Jenner and Cara DeLevingne walked the runway at the Chanel Metiers d'Art show in New York City, and there WERE other models there, but K&C were the only ones anyone was talking about!
The ladies wore couture from the fashion house's latest collection and held hands as they strutted down the catwalk, and later in the evening Cara took the stage with Pharrell Williams. Per Karl Lagerfeld's request, the two then performed "CC the World."
Last December the two teamed up for Reincarnation, which was a mini-musical directed by Lagerfeld, and that's when we first heard the track. Still, seeing the supermodel perform in front of a room full of A-listers is quite interesting!
Click the video below to watch a clip of Cara and Pharrell's duet ... and tell us what you think of her vocal talents!

Sigh ... it looks like we'll be seeing a lot less of Angelina Jolie on camera in the future!
In a recent interview with Elle.com, the 39-year-old actress chats about the challenges of filmmaking and how she's all about directing these days.
"I prefer directing to acting," she says. "There is huge freedom that comes from being behind the camera. It brings a lot of responsibilities as well, but is intensely rewarding. Particularly the chance to help draw out the best in young actors, like Jack O'Connell in Unbroken, who is a remarkable talent."
On the struggles of making Unbroken, she says:
"I tend not to look back and dwell on a project once it is finished. But I do remember how intense the atmosphere was on-set filming some of the tougher scenes [such as] when Louie is being brutalized. It was very moving how always, after those scenes, the actors involved would check [and make sure that] everyone was okay and look out for each other."
When asked what she thought the greatest lesson from Louie's story was, Jolie replied:
"Like many of the greatest human stories, it is about the capacity of regular men and women to rise above adversity. It reminds us never to give up, and that having the spirit to fight is what really matters. It is powerful because it speaks to the potential inside all of us ... I do believe in the old saying 'What does not kill you makes you stronger.' Our experiences, good and bad, make us who we are. By overcoming difficulties, we gain strength and maturity."
Jolie was also asked what issues she'd highlight if she had the power to redirect American media's attention away from gossip, and she said:
"It is not really the nature of the news, but what we do with the information we have. We know more than ever before in history about conflict and injustice happening across the world, but the will to translate that knowledge into pressure and action at a global level somehow seems to be lacking. Time and again, after massacres and atrocities, the world says, 'never again.' But in Syria today, to take just one example, these things are happening with impunity in the full knowledge of the world. We need a greater focus on solutions—not just on information."

Can you believe Beyonce and Jay Z have been married for nearly seven years now? After Elevatorgate we weren't sure what the status of their relationship was, but clearly everything is fine now!
On Tuesday evening the billion dollar couple went to a Chanel event in New York City, and after that the two headed to sushi at Shoku. When X17 photographers snapped the couple leaving a few hours later, they were all smiles. Beyonce is usually pretty friendly with photogs, but Jay Z is notoriously poker-faced -- it's good to see him flash a grin every now and then!
The previous night they attended the launch of his new music streaming service Tidal, and they were joined by a number of other high-profile celebs, including Madonna and Rihanna. Are they feeling giddy because they're about to celebrate seven years of marital bliss or because they think they stand to make even more money off of Jay's latest project? Or maybe B was giddy from the Chanel Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Metiers d'Art show earlier? You know she got hooked up with some freebies!

Teresa Giudice covers the new issue of Us Weekly, and this is the first peek we've gotten at the Real Housewives of New Jersey star behind bars. From her hair to the prison uniform, this is quite a transformation!
Teresa, 42, is currently serving time for her fraud conviction at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut while her husband Joe is staying at home and raising their family. As soon as she's done with her 15-month sentence he'll start his, which will be a considerably longer 41 months.
Teresa and Joe shared a recent photo with the mag and chat about how life is different for their family these days. Their New Jersey mansion was put on the market for $4 million in September, and in January the couple slashed $500,000 off the asking price. The home hasn't sold yet, so that's where Joe and the couples daughters Gia, 14, Gabriella, 10, Milania, 9, and Audriana, 5 are staying.
"I cry more than the girls," Joe tells Us Weekly. "I pretty much cry every time I leave. Like a little baby." Joe is allowed to see his wife for six hours once a week, and Teresa is able to e-mail her daughters. Joe notes that their youngest daughter, Audriana, "thinks she's working." Teresa added, "I miss Joe and my girls terribly."
