Given the fact she titled her latest album Diamonds , it’s not surprising that pop star Rihanna likes the finer things in life. The 24-year-old took living in the lap of luxury a step further this week when she plunked down millions for a 7-bedroom, 9-bath mansion in the L.A. celeb-magnet enclave of Pacific Palisades.
According to Zillow, (though the news was first reported by X17) the home is newly constructed and includes everything the “Rude Boy” singer could want, including a sun deck overlooking the treetops, an outdoor firepit, infinity pool with spa, media room, and the latest in cutting edge technology: a smart-home system that allows homeowners to control air conditioning and heat, fireplaces, security, and the sound system remotely. Perfect for Rihanna’s jet-setting lifestyle!
Kim Kardashian is ending the year with a whole new look.
The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star debuted a new ‘do when her plane touched down at Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday morning. Not only did she shorten and lighten her signature brunette locks, but she also added bangs.
Chris McMillan, the celebrity stylist who turned Miley Cyrus into a punk rocker and famously created “The Rachel” for Jennifer Aniston, is the man behind the 32-year-old’s makeover. “Fun shoot today [with] @chrismcmillan,” Kardashian tweeted Tuesday from Pier 59 Studios in Manhattan. “He just can't control his scissor hands!”
Kardashian also shared a collage of photos from her snip session with McMillan. She’s seen sitting in a chair – in her bathrobe! – while the hair pro styles her to perfection. In her “after” shot, she’s wearing a cropped top and skirt, revealing a hint of her stomach.

For someone who was caught up in one of the biggest, most shocking sex scandals of the last few years, you'd think Arnold Schwarzenegger would want to steer clear of any sex-related talk for the foreseeable future. The "Terminator" star — who admitted in May 2011 that he fathered a son with his family's longtime housekeeper — actually brought up the X-rated subject himself during an interview with , in which he finished sentences with his own thoughts.
About halfway through the questioning, Schwarzenegger was asked, "When you get older … " — something which could have been answered dozens of innocuous ways. Instead, he responded, "sex may change a bit. When you're 65, it's not exactly the same as when you were 25. But that doesn't mean it's over. It's never over."
It's a ring fit for a Diva!
Making her first public appearance since she accepted Brandon Blackstock's marriage proposal, Kelly Clarkson stepped out at Sunday's VH1 Divas concert wearing her massive yellow diamond engagement ring.
Without a doubt, the 30-year-old singer had a special glow as she stepped on the stage at the Shrine Auditorium to perform "Catch My Breath." Wearing a colorful, fairytale-inspired dress, Clarkson's new jewelry was on full display as she performed.

The ring features a huge canary diamond as the centerpiece with smaller diamonds outlining the main stone. There are additional smaller-sized diamonds going all the way around the band. "Brandon designed it with [jeweler] Johnathon Arndt," Clarkson wrote on WhoSay on Saturday. "They did an amazing job!"
Clarkson will soon do some designing of her own. The Texas native said she plans to design Blackstock's wedding band. "I can't wait to make Brandon's ring with Johnathon as well," she wrote.

Lady Gaga has been known to wear some unusual headwear — remember her lobster hat? beef beret? — but over the weekend her look was rather chilling .
The 26-year-old seemed to be channeling iconic psycho Hannibal Lecter when she stepped out in Manhattan wearing cage-style headgear. Dressed in black, including dangerously high platforms, Gaga exited her New York City hotel on Saturday wearing the attention-grabbing contraption. The bizarre accessory, which must have been extremely uncomfortable, featured strips of metal, which mostly obscured her face, and gold chains. All eyes were on the fashionista as she walked to her waiting car in the bizarre apparatus — and she knew it. She played up the moment, keeping a serious expression on her face and her eyes big and wide.
One marked difference between Gaga's look and Lecter's however? Gaga's headpiece featured a cherub on the front right between her eyes. So angelic!

Kristen Stewart sure was in a showy mood at the New York premiere of "On the Road."
On Thursday night, the 22-year-old actress hit the red carpet in yet another sheer dress, but she really outdid herself this time. The Erdem frock featured a white satin bra and short-shorts set, which could have used a good steaming to get the wrinkles out, with a sheer panel covering the front. The see-through fabric was embroidered with a feminine vibrant pink and orange floral pattern. Stewart paired the dress with blinding day glow Christian Louboutin pumps to complete the look.
Stewart's version of the dress — which was essentially a bra and panties with fabric on top — was significantly shorter than how the designer showed it on the runway. The original dress length fell below the knee, but Stewart's exposed most of her thighs.

Georgia May Jagger, 20, is the latest offspring of a musician to star as the face of Madonna's Material Girl clothing line for Macy's.

Cate Blanchett knows how to make a statement on the red carpet … and her message on Wednesday night seemed to be: I'm a "Star Wars" fan.
The 43-year-old Australian actress appeared to be inspired by Princess Leia — minus the side buns — at the U.K. premiere of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey." Her white, floor-length Givenchy gown featured a turtleneck top, fitted waist, and bell sleeves a la Carrie Fisher's famed ensemble. However, the edgy couture gown was over-the-top glam — and subtly sexy. It featured a large cut-out on the back and a va-va-voom thigh slit to show off Blanchett's long legs. It also had gold cuff and shoulder accents.
But no side hair twists for Blanchett! The Academy Award-winning star, who plays royal elf Galadriel in the movie franchise, opted to style her blond locks in a loose bun.
