    Time sure moves fast, as Jessica Simpson is learning thanks to motherhood.

    May 1 was her daughter Maxwell Drew's third birthday and Simpson marked the occasion with a gorgeous black and white photo on Instagram.

    "May 1 my Maxi Drew turned 3," she captioned the pic. "I am in complete denial."

    Simpson and her husband Eric Johnson threw a big party for Maxi in their backyard, the theme of which was... flamingos? pirates? pink? See if you can tell from this shot Evan Ross uploaded from the soiree.

    "I was fully plugged in at my sister-in-law's baby girl's birthday today," Ross wrote. "They went all out!!!!"

    Went all out on what theme exactly? Hell, it's her third birthday, she'll never remember anyway.

  • Should Celebrities Walk Out of Interviews?

    Nicole Pajer at Yahoo Celebrity 57 mins ago

    Case in point: Robert Downey Jr. , who walked out of an interview during the press tour for Avengers: Age of Ultron after British TV anchor Krishnan Guru-Murthy asked the actor about his "dark past" and drug use. After looking off camera for help, Downey Jr. playfully tried to dodge the topic by asking, "Are we promoting a movie?" When Guru-Murthy continued to pry, an off-camera voice was heard saying “OK” and the Avengers actor received the green light to walk out of the interview. He left the reporter flabbergasted as he abruptly said "Bye," removed his mic, and stated, "You seem OK. It's just getting a little Diane Sawyer in here."

    Supermodel Naomi Campbell left an interview and knocked a camera to the floor after being questioned about an alleged blood diamond that she had been given by Charles Taylor.

    Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson gave Ryan Seacrest the slip when his publicist pulled him away from the mic after the radio host asked about his love life on air.

    Well done, RDJ.


  • Justin Timberlake Dresses Like a Giant Lime in Crazy Tequila Ad

    "It was like you couldn't drink tequila without one of us," says Timberlake in head-to-toe green paint. "When we walked into the club, it was like everything was in slow motion. Literally. It was like we were rock stars."

    So, naturally, there was lots of celebrating to be had.

    And dancing.

    But the good times ended when JT's tequila, Sauza 901, came around and was so smooth you didn't need to chase it with limes.

    Last year, Timberlake sold his alcohol brand 901 (named after his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee) to liquor giant Sauza. According to Mashable, this is JT's first major effort to let the public know that he is the co-owner (and face) of Sauza 901.

    And just in time for Cinco de Mayo.

  • Robert De Niro's Massive Manhattan Penthouse Hits the Market for $39.8 Million

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 1 hr ago

    We spend a lot of time focused on ways in which stars are just like us: They go grocery shopping, get married, have cellulite. But every now and then, something happens that highlights just how different their worlds are, like when one of their homes goes on sale for tens of millions of dollars — like Robert De Niro's, right now, for example. (Full disclosure: De Niro doesn't own this pricey piece of property, but he rented it for nearly two years.) But if you do happen to have a cool $39.8 million burning a hole in your pocket, this slice of De Niro-approved heaven can be all yours, according to Curbed and local ABC 7 News.

    Stars are just like us… except their temporary living arrangements don't involve friends' couches.

  • Lorde and Lawrence Is the New Lorde and Taylor

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 3 hrs ago

    How was your weekend? Did you hang out with your girlfriends and have a craaaazy time, downing shots into the wee hours of the night? Lorde and Jennifer Lawrence had a pretty great weekend, too — minus the crazy drunken antics — as the two of them hung out together on Sunday. Add that pairing to your list of favorite celebrity pals.

    The two hung out in the NYC neighborhood NoHo (not too far from Lorde's pal Taylor Swift's pad in Tribeca), where perhaps they were dishing to each other about their respective outfits for the Met Gala. (Maybe that explains J.Law's new hair extensions.)

    When a fan asked the songstress on Twitter how J.Law reacted to her presence on set, Lorde wrote:

  • Sofia Vergara Dismisses Embryo Drama With Her Ex

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 3 hrs ago

    A keen observer would note that Sofia Vergara's ex-fiancé's New York Times op-ed — where he argued for his right to bring two embryos the couple froze while they were still together to term — was perfectly timed to Vergara's press tour for Hot Pursuit . Coincidence? Maybe. (It's not.) Anyway, she was going to have to address it at some point, which she did Monday with — who else? — Howard Stern.

    "There is a contract and he can't do anything," Vergara said of her legal dispute with ex-fiancé Nick Loeb. "We wrote what we wanted at the time and it's not like a contract that they give you right there at the moment that they're going to take my eggs out. You see it, you review it, and not only that, we did it two times. ... Two times and suddenly you want to change your mind?"

    Meanwhile, Vergara seems to be moving full steam ahead with Joe Manganiello, to whom she's now engaged.

  • The Royal Baby Is Such a Charlotte

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 6 hrs ago

    Several years from now, Britain's newest princess won't have to think too hard when the inevitable question comes up: "Which character from Sex and the City are you?" She's literally a Charlotte.

    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

    Kensington Palace has confirmed that the daughter of William and Kate, born Saturday, is named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Or if we're being formal, and what two-day-old baby doesn't prefer formalities, her full title is Her Royal Highness Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge. And what did you get, three names on your birth certificate, like some pauper?

    Diana is, of course, in honor of the baby's late grandmother, Princess Diana, who was killed in a car crash in Paris in 1997.

  • Melissa Rivers Reflects on Joan Rivers's Final Hours

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 8 hrs ago

    "I didn't have to tell her I loved her, she knew. She didn't have to tell me she loved me, I knew," says Melissa Rivers of the morning her mother, Joan Rivers, passed away, after one week in a medically induced coma.

    Eight months to the day later, Melissa opened up on the Today show about her mother's tragic death and the legacy she left behind. In a previously released clip from the interview, Rivers called her mother's death "100 percent preventable." Monday morning, she got more specific.

    Rivers checked into Yorkville Endoscopy in New York City the morning of August 28, 2014; she was there to receive a routine endoscopy. During the procedure, Rivers stopped breathing and would never do so on her own again. Allegations of malpractice and ineptitude have dogged the clinic since Joan Rivers's death.

    That story comes from a report by the Health Department which found that one of the doctors in the operating room did take a photo during the procedure.

  • 5 Most Bizarre Celeb Moments at Mayweather-Pacquiao Fight

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    Did everyone have a nice nap last night? Since the "fight of the century" was essentially just Floyd Mayweather dancing around for $180 million, we couldn't help but lose focus and become more interested in the star-studded crowd.

    Here are five celeb moments that got our attention:

    1. Justin Bieber is Officially No Longer the Oddest Member of Floyd Mayweather's Entourage 2015 has been the year of mature Bieber (or so we're led to believe) and that translated to the "Confident" crooner's wardrobe choice for last night. The 21-year-old singer nicely combed his freshly cut hair and opted for a slick gray suit to escort The Champ to the ring. While the Biebs blended in with the grown up, A-List crowd, it was the Burger King who stood out. No, really, Floyd chose to be accompanied by the fast-food chain's mascot as he made his way to the ring. Wonder how much BK dished out for that? Money Mayweather indeed.

    He has also been a trending topic on Twitter, but for all the wrong reasons.

  • It's a Girl for the Royal Family!

    Kate Middleton gave birth to a baby girl at 8:34 a.m. local time on May 2. The little lady weighed in at 8 lbs., 3 oz.

    Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a daughter at 8.34am.

    The baby weighs 8lbs 3oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth.

    The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales & The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry & members of both families have been informed

    Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.

    This is the second child for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Their son, Prince George, was born in July 2013. Prince William and Kate's little girl is fourth in line to the throne, pushing Prince Harry to fifth.

    Middleton, 33, had to announce her pregnancy sooner than expected — at around 12 weeks — because she was forced to cancel an appearance due to Hyperemesis Gravidarum, or acute morning sickness.

    With Kate's first pregnancy, she was so ill with the same condition that she had to be hospitalized. However, during the second time around she was able to be treated by doctors at her residence in Kensington Palace.

    Prince William, 32, stepped in for his wife at the planned engagement in Oxford.
