Lady Gaga Gets Cheek To Cheek With Legend Tony Bennett

Posted on Tue Jul 29th, 2014 6:00am PDT

Talk about an odd couple!

Who wouldn't thunk Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett would team up ... again!

First, the pair collaborated in 2011 on the duet "The Lady is a Tramp" for his Grammy-winning album, Duets, now they've reunited for Cheek To Cheek, a jazz album created at Gaga's behest. The singer called Bennett from Australia, while on tour in 2011 and said, "I want to do a jazz album with you." Bennett was alternately shocked and excited and accepted the invitation. He says of the Paparazzi singer's vocal ability:

    "I do not understand why she [Gaga] had to make contemporary music! When she sings great standards, she does it with such emotion... It will surprise people by the quality of her voice when making quality songs. We sing a duet again on the album, but also separately. With this album, I think she will become bigger than Elvis Presley! Of course we recorded the album in New York. As the saying goes: 'If you can make it in New York, you'll make it anywhere.'"

The album's release date has yet to be announced, but the duo will record a TV special at Lincoln Center, to air on PBS October 25.

EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS - Kim Kardashian Busted By Police For Tinted Windows

Posted on Mon Jul 28th, 2014 3:00pm PDT

On Monday morning Kim Kardashian was pulled over at the corner of Valley Circle and Burbank Blvd in Calabasas, and police gave the reality starlet a warning for the overly-tinted windows on her black Mercedes SUV. Hey, at least she didn't get a citation!

But maybe she should have? After all, this is the second time in the last 18 months that she's been stopped for her excessively dark windows! Back in March of 2013 she was giving a warning on the same vehicle, so we're wondering how she was able to pull this off!

Our photographers on the scene tell X17online exclusively, "Kim handled the incident like a pro, and she totally used her star power and flirty personality to weasel her way out of a ticket." Not at all surprising...

This photo will definitely make it into one of their family albums!

Kaley Cuoco is busy filming the movie Burning Bohdi in New Mexico, and she and her husband decided to go back to the wild wild west with a vaudeville-inspired photo shoot!

"Had some free time, so meandered over yonder to the ole saloon and it was a hoot! #ontheshootphotography #newmexico," the Big Bang star captioned the snapshot.

It seems the honeymoon phase may never end for these two!


One Direction's Liam Payne Whips Fans Into A Tizzy With Naked Prank

Posted on Mon Jul 28th, 2014 10:50am PDT

Did One Direction's Liam Payne just get naked?! Not so much -- but he definitely tricked fans into thinking that!

On Sunday, the 20-year-old boy bander whipped fans into a heated frenzy when he posted a photo of himself on a boat -- and a pixilated bathing-suit area.

Along with the potentially racy pic, Liam wrote, "Damn that was my last pair!"

1D fans went wild, thinking that the music man had gone commando for the snap and demanded he post an unpixilated snap.

But alas -- not all is what it seemed. Seven hours posting the original pic, the vacationing heartthrob gave into his followers demands and shared the picture -- pre-pixilation. Looks like he actually had his bathing suit on the whole time!

Oh those cheeky Brits!

In other One Direction news, bandmate Zayn Malk got political today when he tweeted, "#FreePalestine." His fans and foes are up in arms, harshly reacting. Some followers even went so far as to say they hoped Zayn and his family would die. Wow.

Those boys certainly know how to set the Internet aflame ...

Paris Hilton Says Partying With Charlie Sheen Was "Awesome"

Posted on Mon Jul 28th, 2014 10:20am PDT

Paris Hilton loooves to party -- especially when it's with Charlie Sheen!

After hanging out with the wild boy at her Malibu beach house, the celebutante strutted her stuff through LAX and talked about how "awesome" it was to party down with the winning warlock.

Over the weekend, Paris had an epic house party at her Malibu beach house and a famous faces like Tyga, Chris Brown, Cheryl Burke and soccer stud Jermaine Jones were all on hand for the bash. We'd love to be a fly on the sand of that beach party!

In other Paris news, the 33-year-old socialite was making out with her new beau, male model Josh Upshaw, in Malibu on Monday. Looks like the lanky lady has said bye bye to Rivers Viiperi -- and hello to this other dude!

Despite the new love, the bubbly blonde was flying solo on Sunday, jetting off to Ibiza (interestingly enough -- that's where her former flame River is from) in a chartreuse maxi dress and heels. We wouldn't expect her to fly any other way!

Hottie with a body!

Vanessa Hudgens flaunted her rock hard abs in a white skirt and cropped halter top last night at the Young Hollywood Awards, and we have to say she looks amazing, which is maybe why the Spring Breakers star was presented with the Trendsetter Award!

We wonder where boyfriend Austin Butler was? We used to see the couple out all the time together, but in recent weeks we've only seen V-Hudg by herself. Seems like a breakup announcement might be coming soon!

Kim Kardashian, Brandon Jenner Kissed "Back In The Day", Brody Jenner Says

Posted on Mon Jul 28th, 2014 8:50am PDT


Kim Kardashian and step brother Brandon Jenner once got a little too close for comfort and kissed when they were younger, brother Brody Jenner revealed on the latest episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

After Brody walked in on his reality star sibling doing a sexy photoshoot in Thailand, the family began joking that the 30-year-old was turned on by it. "I feel like Brody is crushing on Kim. I think you've had a crush since you were 7 years old," Kris Jenner joked.

"That was him and Kim!" Brody shot back, pointing at Brandon. "You're forgetting that. They kissed back in the day," he revealed. Brandon tried to deny the incident and change the subject, but Brody continued, "It's on you now! And he knows it's true."

Such a Clueless moment!


Nikki Reed And Ian Somerhalder Have A Romantic Dinner Date

Posted on Mon Jul 28th, 2014 7:58am PDT

Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed are everywhere!

On Sunday night the hot new couple had dinner at Craig's in West Hollywood, and the night before that the lovebirds were all over each other at Float Bar at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego where they "held each other's faces and were kissing sweetly and passionately," according to People Magazine.

We spotted Nikki and Ian getting out of town, but since he had come back from Comic-Con on Thursday night, we assumed they were going on a romantic vacay. Guess he just couldn't be apart from his new lady love!

So how has Ian's ex Nina Dobrev taken the news? After all, she was close friends with Nikki, and after some of her cryptic tweets, it seemed like she was pretty pissed! But maybe not? “Nina has gone on with her dating life just as much as Ian has, and they both made a decision not to ruin the show or their friendship with their feelings on outside relationships,” a source tells HollywoodLife. “They are good, and they will be good if Ian and Nikki take it to the next level.”

Over the weekend at Comic-Con Nina was seen getting pretty affectionate with Ben McKenzie, so is he her rebound?! We gotta ask!
