    Taylor Swift will not talk about Katy Perry, but she has no problem praising another one of her peers.

    The "Style" singer took to Twitter over the weekend to gush about Lady Gaga, and, clearly, the feelings are mutual.

    Is it just me or is Lady Gaga, like, fully LIVING right now?!? #goals

    Perhaps Swift, 25, caught wind of the adorable photos of Lady Gaga, 28, taking the polar plunge in Chicago with new fiancé Taylor Kinney. The "Applause" crooner was directed to the message and replied on Monday.

    @taylorswift13 wow you're a sweetheart! Life is friends, family, and love! We all see that in you, your prince charming will come! ❤️💋

    After an exhausting awards season, Benedict Cumberbatch has found time to properly unwind with his new bride.

    The Imitation Game star, 38, and Sophie Hunter are on a 10-day honeymoon in Tahiti, according to E! News. The newlyweds are staying at a five-star resort in Bora Bora.

    "Benedict looked so excited to be there and was snapping pictures with his camera," an eyewitness says. "They were given pineapple-infused water and beautiful flower leis that they immediately put around their necks and smelled the fresh flowers."

    The Sherlock star and his pregnant wife, 36, are staying in a water bungalow which they have "rarely" left (naturally).

    The Cumberbatches also reportedly enjoyed massages in their room when it rained.

  • Alec Baldwin Rapped With Chance the Rapper

    Eminem and Elton John. Kanye West and Paul McCartney. Sir Mix-a-Lot and the Seattle Symphony Orchestra. We've seen plenty of unlikely collaborations in our day, but nothing quite as strange as this. Alec Baldwin and Chance the Rapper joined forces to raise money for Young Chicago Authors, an arts organization promoting youth literacy. The two made their debut performance onstage at an event for the charity over the weekend, then Chance posted a snippet of their performance on Instagram.

    Chance does the beatboxing while Baldwin raps lines from Carl Sandburg's poem "Chicago."

    Sorry Carly Rae Jepsen, but we smell song of the summer potential here.

  • Leonard Nimoy Laid to Rest

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 16 hrs ago

    Live long and prosper — and your legacy will continue after you're gone. Star Trek legend Leonard Nimoy was laid to rest during a private ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday. The actor died Friday, Feb. 27, at the age of 83 from end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

    Details of the Jewish service were kept intentionally under wraps in order to prevent the Westboro Baptist Church from picketing the event. (Westboro Baptist is a relatively small but extremely vocal group that hosts aggressive protests outside the funerals of servicemen and women and celebs who hold beliefs counter to its own.) The efforts were successful, as the church called off its plans after admitting it couldn't track down the funeral's location. Fortunately, the memorial proved to be peaceful and truly touching for the family and friends who attended.

    Rabbi John L. Rosove, who is also the first cousin to Nimoy's wife, Susan, provided a eulogy in which he talked about the actor's love for his other half:

  • Tech Scion Kim Kardashian Covers 'Adweek': Yes, My Selfies Are 'Ridiculous'

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 18 hrs ago

    Silicon Valley's next big thing, Kim Kardashian, is on the cover of this month's AdWeek. Kardashian talks about her burgeoning mobile empire, whether or not she'll ever quit social media, and the legacy her many selfies will leave behind.

    With a hit television show, more than 40 million followers across multiple social media platforms, and a hugely successful app, Kim Kardashian is the true Queen of All Media. But, for now, mobile is Kim's focus.

    Another thing Kim wants to create more of? Selfies. She'll never stop taking selfies. Your hatred feeds her.

    Selfies and apps. It's remarkable how the world can change in just 10 years.

    Kim also says she's got no plans to quit social media in the immediate future, which, thank god .

    Her eyes. And her negligee.

  • Meryl Streep's 3 Daughters Stun in Fashion Shoot

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 19 hrs ago

    Meryl Streep's gene pool is unsurprisingly a mighty one. Look no further than the new campaign for the H&M-owned store & Other Stories, which features Streep's three radiant daughters with husband Don Gummer — Mamie Gummer, 31, Grace Gummer, 28, and Louisa Gummer, 23 — together modeling the items from the new collaborationbetween Clare Vivierand & Other Stories.

    But chic bags aside, let us pause to acknowledge the most critical thing here: they look Just. Like. Meryl . Seriously! They're spitting images of Streep circa Kramer vs. Kramer .

    Which, yeah, means they are freaking stunning.

    Needless to say, the three gorgeous Gummer girls each have their own things going on. They're more than just the daughters of one of the most talented actresses to ever step foot onto a movie set. They're all talented and accomplished in their own rights.

    Mamie is an actress who starred on Emily Owens, M.D. as the title character. She's also made appearances on The Good Wife and The Big C .

     

  • Justin Bieber Celebrates His 21st Birthday by Trying Alcohol for the First Time

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 19 hrs ago

    Over the weekend, Canadian everteen Justin Bieber turned 21 years of age. He celebrated by renting out an entire Caribbean island and dancing around to 50 Cent's "In Da Club" while chugging champagne. He also apparently forgot to pack any shirts for his big birthday getaway. :(

    The whole specatcle looks like a nightmare, but then again were you doing anything more interesting when you turned 21?

    According to TMZ, the island Bieber rented out for the party is located near Granada. 

    Among the guests invited to Bieber's private island birthday getaway was Hailey Baldwin, who is either his close friend or his girlfriend. Then again, the line between friend and girlfriend is a very thin one at that age, blurred by alcohol and hormones. She did post this picture of the two from the party so go ahead speculate away.

    There were other guests models at the party as well. Like this lady:

    Here's hoping there are eggs and coffee somewhere on this mysterious island for the morning-after hangover.

    Grateful to be alive!!! Love u!!! 21

  • Taylor Swift, Pop Star Queen of Goodness and Godmother to Jaime King's Baby

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 20 hrs ago

    Taylor Swift is many things. She's a wildly successful pop star, New York City's Welcome Ambassador for Tourism, and the personification of a human sunbeam. (You heard about how she donated $50K to New York City public schools, but did you ever hear about the time she doled out cash to a fan to buy Chipotle? Well... she did.) And now, the "Blank Space" singer, 25, has announced that she will be adding another title to her slate of perennial goodness: godmother of Jaime King's unborn baby.

    " Guess who just got named Godmother of this little one..... ," she wrote on Instagram. "(ME) @jaime_king @kyle_newman."

  • See Justin Bieber Transform from 'Baby' Boy to Mustached Man

    Raechal Leone Shewfelt at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    Remember when the world first caught Bieber fever? Some Canadian 14-year-old named Justin Bieber, with an angelic voice and a full head of hair — which would soon be styled in his famous swoopy 'do — entered the scene in 2007, after his YouTube videos went viral.

    Millions of records sales; a high-profile romance with Selena Gomez; legal troubles (thanks to egg pranks and car races); a lot of tattoos; and some wacky outfits later, Bieber is still doing his thing. Although, now he's usually shirtless and wearing facial hair.
