    Claudine Zap at Yahoo Celebrity 10 mths ago

    Katy Perry just got catty — in a good way.

    The pop star showed off her new Hello Kitty tattoo inked on her middle finger in a pic she posted to Instagram on Thursday.

    "Does this make my gang signs look soft now?" she captioned the photo of her extended finger featuring the signature pink bow and mouthless face of the Sanrio character.

    Perhaps the chart topper, who just celebrated her 30th birthday on Oct. 25, decided to give herself a fun present to mark the milestone. It's certainly the cutest tattoo we've ever seen!

    The Big Bang Theory actress is now officially a big attraction: Kaley Cuoco received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday.

    The 28-year-old even shed a few tears at the ceremony. "This is a dream come true and I am forever grateful," Cuoco, who plays the role of Penny on the hit CBS comedy, told assembled friends, fans, and co-stars.

    She also thanked her husband of 10 months, Ryan Sweeting, for dealing with "a lot of Kaley days." "Love you… and this would not be the same without being able to share it with you today." Awww.

    Mrs. Cruise, she is not. And Katie Holmes is hoping you'll see that, too.

    "I don't want that moment in my life to define me, to be who I am. I don't want that to be what I'm known as," she told People magazine looking back at her marriage to Tom Cruise, which ended in 2012. "I was an actor before, I was an actor during, and I'm an actor now."

    Being an actor doesn't mean being immune from tough times, though. The 35-year-old Dawson's Creek star admitted, "I'm much more shy and also much more sensitive than people realize. I cry all the time. I do!"

    But they're not always tears of sadness. Holmes spoke of the warm feelings she got after ending her marriage, fleeing Scientology, and leaving Los Angeles for the East Coast with her daughter, Suri, now 8. "When I got to New York City, the amount of support I got from strangers … It makes me cry."

    Kristen who? Robert Pattinson certainly seems to have moved on. The actor was photographed with his new gal pal, FKA Twigs, in Paris on Tuesday.

    The British singer-songwriter, whose real name is Tahliah Barnett, is currently traveling around Europe for her concert tour — and R. Pattz seemed quite happy to join her on the road in the City of Light.

    The two were snapped spending the day in each other's company before her performance that night at La Maronquinerie. Pattinson looked scruffy but casual in a blue overcoat and brown wool hat while Twigs pulled her hair up in a messy bun and sported a denim jacket. Both wore sunglasses.

    This isn't the first time the lovebirds have been spotted together. In September, photos of the couple holding hands in Venice Beach in Los Angeles surfaced, breaking Twi-hard fans' hearts everywhere.

  • Fashion Faceoff: Lindsay Lohan and Naomi Watts Go Glam in Givenchy

    Claudine Zap at Yahoo Celebrity 10 mths ago


    Fortunately, Naomi Watts didn't go all Mean Girls on Lindsay Lohan for stealing her look. The slinky Givenchy number that LiLo, 28, recently sported on the opening night of her  Speed-the-Plow  production in London's West End was the same one Watts, 46, donned for th e 13th annual AARP Movies for Grownups Awards Gala in Los Angeles  back in February. Though Lohan's debut performance received mixed reviews, what about her fashion choice for the afterparty?

    What they wore:  A rosy, sequined Givenchy frock, which hits just below the knees and covers the arms.  The beautiful blush tone and all-over sparkle certainly explains the stars' attraction to the same dress, which was flattering on both actresses.

  • Amanda Bynes Placed on Psychiatric Hold After Accusing Father of Abuse

    Claudine Zap at Yahoo Celebrity 10 mths ago

    Amanda Bynes has been placed on psychiatric hold for the second time, Yahoo has confirmed.

    After landing in L.A. on Friday, the troubled star was apparently taken to a treatment facility in Pasadena, California, where she will be held for 72 hours.

    The move happened on the heels of Bynes's increasingly bizarre behavior in New York City, culminating in a series of disturbing tweets directed at her father.

    The allegations led the troubled actress's mother to break her silence and come to his defense on Friday.

    "I am heartbroken today for my husband of 47 years," Lynn Bynes told Yahoo in a statement from her attorney, Tamar Arminak. "Rick has been the best father and husband a family can ask for. He has never abused Amanda or our other children physically or sexually. These accusations are absolutely horrible and could not be further from the truth!  These allegations stem from Amanda's mental state at the moment. They have no basis in reality. It saddens me beyond belief that my husband's character could be slandered in such a way."   The statement was spurred by these tweets posted by Bynes.

"I'm just taking everything one day at a time and just being the best person that I can possibly be at the end of the day," the 34-year-old told Extra at the New York City premiere of Addicted on Thursday.

    Claudine Zap at Yahoo Celebrity 11 mths ago

    Katy Perry is known for her over-the-top performances, and as ESPN's College GameDay celebrity picker, she didn't disappoint .

    Clad in a hot pink, fuzzy football jersey, the pop singer appeared on the college football pregame show Saturday as No. 3 Alabama faced off against No. 11 Ole Miss. She admitted she had never attended a college game before and didn’t know much about sports (she was on the show because her manager and mentor are Ole Miss alumni). However, she kept everyone entertained with her kooky antics.

    Perry made a crass joke about South Carolina’s g amecock mascot and even hurled corndogs at the camera, implying that LSU fans smelled like them.
