  • Kanye West: When I Worked at Gap

    Raechal Leone Shewfelt at Yahoo Celebrity 3 hrs ago

    Kanye West can't stop talking about Gap.

    The 37-year-old briefly worked for the chain retailer as a teen growing up in Chicago and, by his own account, did not enjoy it. In his 2004 song "Spaceship," from his debut album The College Dropout , West rapped that he made "no scratch" at the retailer, so he stole from it and eventually quit. Still, it was obviously a formative experience for him.

    In an essay that he penned for the new "American Dream" issue of Paper magazine, West name checked the company twice. (The mag is the same one responsible for the photo of West's wife Kim Kardashian balancing a champagne bottle on her bottom last year, but West stayed quite covered up for his turn on the racks.)

    Kanye also referenced Gap as he talked about what he feels is a responsibility to help others, particularly his fellow musicians.

    Ah, see how he did that?

  • Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin Finalize Divorce

    Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have officially uncoupled.

    The amicable exes filed for divorce on Monday, according to reports, and they have already signed off on the terms that their business managers hashed out on their behalf.

    The confidential settlement involved both property and custody, and while the details are sealed, it's safe to assume that the former couple will share custody of their two children as they have continued to co-parent amicably since announcing their split a year ago.

    Case in point… Gwyneth and Chris recently returned from a family spring break trip in Mexico where they were photographed happily hanging out together with daughter Apple, 10, and son Moses, 9,

    So far, so good.

  • Sofia Vergara's Ex Nick Loeb Speaks Out on Frozen Embryo Battle: 'I Have Always Dreamed of Being a Father'

    Things are getting extremely icy between Sofia Vergara and Nick Loeb regarding their ongoing embryo battle.

    For those not up to date, the disagreement is contextually simple, although emotionally fraught. Vergara's ex, Loeb — from whom she splitin 2014 — basically wants to become a father with or without help from the Modern Family star. The 39-year-old, who has filed a lawsuit against Vergara in an attempt to prevent their two frozen female embryos from being destroyed, released a statement on his lawyer Mark Jay Heller's website Monday:

    The statement also included Loeb's own words:

    The big question is: Does Loeb have a right to the frozen embryos without Vergara's involvement?

     

     

  • Bobby Brown's Lawyer Clarifies His Comments About Bobbi Kristina: 'The Quality of Her Life Will Not Be Known for Years To Come'

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 7 hrs ago

    After Bobby Brown told concertgoers in Dallas Saturday night that his daughter, Bobbi Kristina, "is awake," Brown's lawyer Christopher Brown is scaling back the singer's exuberant claim that Bobbi "is watching me."

    "Bobbi Kristina’s condition has changed since moving from Emory University Hospital and there has been improvement," Brown said in a statement to The Insider With Yahoo . "Doctors have indicated that she will have a long life. However, Bobbi Kristina is presently embarking on a rehabilitation process and the quality of her life will not be known for years to come."

    Bobbi Kristina, Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's only child, has been hospitalized since January, when she was found unresponsive in a bathtub in an incident eerily similar to the one which caused her mother's death. In February, she was placed in a medically induced coma in order to treat brain swelling.

    She was initially hospitalized at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, though she was released last month and moved to an undisclosed rehab facility.

  • John Travolta: Scientology Is 'Not Understood'

    John Travolta is once again defending Scientology.

    The actor has been devoted to the cult-like religion for more than four decades, and recent criticism of it from the HBO documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief has not changed his mind. The doc alleged physical and mental abuse, as well as corruption, within the church.

    In an interview Monday with Good Morning America, the 61-year-old explained his theory as to why people have such strong feelings against his religion.

    "Mostly because it's not understood," he said. "People really need to take time and read a book. You know, that's my advice. You could read [Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard's] A New Slant on Life , you could read Dianetics . I think if you really read it, you'll understand it, but unless you do, you'll speculate. And I think that's a mistake to do that."

    When GMA host Amy Robach asked why Scientology had become such a target, Travolta had a ready explanation.

    "And I don't really care to," he added.

    Some couples are simply cursed. Things were never going to end well for Antony and Cleopatra. Romeo and Juliet had their obvious issues. But Calvin Harris is allergic to cats and that spells major trouble for his blossoming relationship with Taylor Swift.

    According to MSN, Harris is not gelling with Swift's fur kids, Dr. Meredith Grey and Det. Olivia Benson:

    Now if only there were a magical pill that could solve this problem.

  • Sam Smith: Food 'Controlled Me'

    Women do it all the time. But it's not often that the men in Tinseltown talk about about their weight, unless they're talking about how they added tons of muscle for a new role.

    However, Sam Smith is an exception. The "Lay Me Down" crooner spoke candidly about his body and a 14-pound weight loss in 14 days last month during an interview with 60 Minutes Australia on Sunday.

    "From a young age food has controlled me," the 22-year-old Smith revealed.

    "When I was at school and wasn't having a great time or when music wasn't going very well. I would eat, eat," he explained. "Eating would make me feel better, when I felt lonely I would eat."

    Smith's new outlook on food comes courtesy of Amelia Freer, a nutritionist who emphasizes clean, unprocessed foods. Smith wrote Friday on Instagram that he's still four pounds away from his goal weight but is already "happier and healthier than ever." 

  • Jordin Sparks Fuels Romance Rumors With Sage the Gemini

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 10 hrs ago

    The 25-year-old singer isn't doing much to dispel rumors that she is dating rapper Sage the Gemini. Sparks posted a photo to Instagram that shows her and Gemini standing face to face, looking like they are about to kiss.

    "Freeze the moment, it's never been better...," she captioned the intimate photo.

    This would be the first relationship for the American Idol alum since she and Derulo, 25, went through a public breakup last fall.

    The "Talk Dirty" rapper spoke to Ryan Seacrest shortly after their split, saying that "there was a lot of tension in the relationship," including, "a lot of pressures of marriage."

    Despite Jason saying he and Jordin were "cool," the split didn't exactly sound amicable on her end.

    Around the same time, Jordin also spoke to Wendy Williams about how she is "not good at dating."

  • Twitter Helps Channing Tatum Retrieve Lost Backpack

    Having seven million Twitter followers is good for some things and great for others. Over the weekend, Channing Tatum enlisted the help of his many fans to aid him in tracking down a bag that he left in the back seat of a cab.

    Dropped off at 42nd street in New York City and left my bag in the cab!

    The Magic Mike XXL star clearly had anxiety — like anyone who's have in that situation has — and pleaded with folks who may be in the area to help a guy out. He even set up a special email address and everything.

    Dropped off at 42nd street in New York City and left my bag in the cab!

    Seriously, left my black backpack in a cab near NYC's 42nd street. If you find it, email me at findmybag@channingtatumunwrapped.com. Thanks!

    A possible meet up with Tatum (or likely someone from his team) was incentive enough for many folks to scour the cabs of New York City... or use the lost pack to try and lure the actor into their house.

    @BritttHoffmann literally on my way

    @channingtatum Its in my house, you have to come get it. Hurry!

  • Heath Ledger's Sister Says Michelle Williams Keeps Things 'Real' for Matilda

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 14 hrs ago

    It's been more than seven years since Heath Ledger died, but his now 9-year-old daughter, Matilda, has grown up to be a well-adjusted young girl, according to Ledger's sister, Kate. In an interview with Australia's Confidential (via The HeraldSun ) she described the actor's daughter as "an expressive, creative, beautiful girl who is fortunate enough to have great grounding from her mum."

    But would you expect anything else given the creative nature of her parents? Kate continued to shower praise on Michelle Williams's job mothering her niece: "Michelle really does keep things 'real' for her," she said, "and her existence, although different from most, is as normal as possible in an abnormal world."
