  • Scarlett Johansson: Nothing 'Creepy or Inappropriate' About John Travolta

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 1 hr ago

    Scarlett Johansson has come to John Travolta's defense after a picture of him greeting her on the red carpet at the Oscars became an Internet meme.

    "There is nothing at all strange, creepy or inappropriate about John Travolta," Johansson said in a statement to the Associated Press. She also called her A Love Song for Bobby Long co-star a "class act" and noted that she hadn't seen him "in some years and it is always a pleasure to be greeted by him.

    Johansson further explained that the photo was "an unfortunate still-frame from a live-action encounter that was totally sweet and totally welcome. That still photo does not reflect what preceded and followed if you see the moment live. Yet another way we are misguided, misinformed and sensationalized by the 24-hour news cycle."

  • Gisele Bündchen Shares Rare Wedding Pic for #TBT on Her Sixth Anniversary

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 2 hrs ago

    What do you do when your wedding anniversary happens to fall on a Thursday? You post a #TBT to your wedding, of course. And if you happen to be Gisele Bündchen , 34, one of the most gorgeous women on the planet, and your husband happens to football dynamo Tom Brady, 37, then you post a rare photo on Instagram for us mortals to ooh and aah over.

    "Magical day! #tbt," she wrote. " Dia mágico! "

    And surely that day — February 26, 2009 — was special, given the looks of that insanely cool cake topper alone. It practically classifies as a piece of artwork! (This is the point where brides-to-be who are watching their wallets curse their budget restrictions. If only!)

    But all joking and jealousy aside, look at these two. Look how in love they look! And look how drop-dead amazing her sparkling wedding dress is!

    Happy sixth anniversary, Gisele and Tom! Here's to your next.

  • Kylie Jenner Just Got a Lot of Decorating Money Thanks to $100 Million Deal

    Already have a lot of feelings about 17-year-old Kylie Jenner throwing down $2.7 million for her first house? Just wait until you hear the kind of money she is going to have to decorate it with.

    Kris Jenner just got her girls, Kim, Khloé, Kourtney, Kendall, and Kylie a new four-year, $100 million deal at the E! network, sources close to the family tell Yahoo. That means you get at least four more seasons of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and their spinoff shows. Get excited! (E! has declined to confirm the financials of the deal and is downplaying the $100 million figure.)

    That nice chunk of change will come in handy for the youngest Jenner, Kylie, who just purchased a new five bedroom party pad in The Oaks, the same gated community in Calabasas, California, where Kourtney and Khloé live.

    So how might she put that cash to use? Kris talked to E! Newsabout how Kylie plans to decorate.

  • Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's Epic Backyard, from a Playground for North to a Pair of Pools

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 4 hrs ago

    While Kim and Kanye are away, North West will play. In a backyard fit for the World's Most Important Toddler.

    On Wednesday, X17 got photos of workers installing a behemoth jungle gym behind Kim and Kanye's $20 million Hidden Hills home. This thing's got everything: there are two sets of monkey bars, several slots for slides, and presumably a swing or two will be installed later.

    The jungle gym is just the latest addition to what was already a dream home. Kim and Kanye bought the house in August of last year. It has two pools, a vineyard, eight bedrooms, a 1,050 square foot outdoor patio for entertaining, and a guest house, which the couple has converted into a recording studio for Kanye. The new jungle gym is behind the pool house on the edge of the 3.5-acre property.

  • Kim and Kanye's Crazy Day at the Brit Awards, From Fast Food to Face-Licking

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 5 hrs ago

    Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had a wacky, whirlwind trip to the Brit Awards. Or, as they like to call it, Wednesday.

    At around 2 p.m. London time — or  6 a.m. Los Angeles time —Kim touched down at Heathrow Airport. That's love for you — flying all night to see your man perform his new song. Kanye was a last-minute fill-in for Rihanna after she failed to show up for rehearsals, per the U.K.'sDaily Mail.

    But her cross-continental trip did not keep Kim from a little self-promotion. She postedthis tweet with a corresponding Instagram post:

    JUST SEEN KANYE WEST IN NANDOS OH MY GODDDDD

    Kanye, however, was not half as delighted.

    Perhaps that fast food didn't sit so well. Maybe try a kale shake next time?

    ...Even though she failed before utlimately snapping that photo.

  • Elizabeth Taylor's $8 Million Diamond Drama

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 6 hrs ago

    The estate of Elizabeth Taylor is in a dispute with Christie's auction house over the actress's heart-shaped "Taj Mahal" diamond, which is set inside a ruby border of a pendant given to Taylor by then-husband Richard Burton in 1972 for her 40th birthday.

    In 2011, the New York auction house sold the 17th century piece of jewelry for $8.8 million to an anonymous buyer following Taylor's death. The original owner of the diamond was believed to be Shah Jahan, from the Mughal Empire, who built the Taj in memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal.

    The Los Angeles Times reports the buyer demanded the sale be canceled months later based on his or her belief that the stone was not from the Mughal period.

    Per the lawsuit filed by trustees of Taylor's estate, Christie's canceled the sale even though the auction house never guaranteed the age of the diamond, only describing it as being of Indian origin.

    An attorney representing the estate of Elizabeth Taylor declined to comment.

  • Ivanka Trump Opens Up About Converting to Judaism

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 7 hrs ago

    People were surprised in 2009 when Ivanka Trump converted to Judaism for her fiancé, businessman and New York Observer owner Jared Kushner. They tied the knotlater that year, but until now, the powerful businesswoman and designer hadn't divulged much about her choice to convert or her life as a Jewish wife and mother.

    And it makes sense why. After all, religion isn't exactly prime for small talk — you don't just bring it up in an elevator after you comment on the hazy weather or during an interview about The Apprentice . However, in a new profile in Vogue, she opened up about the matter, but not without commenting on just how personal the topic is.

  • Zelda Williams: 'No Point' Asking Why Robin Williams Took His Own Life

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 8 hrs ago

    Six months after Robin Williams took his own life, his daughter Zelda is opening up about what hers is like now that he's gone. And while she's certainly still recovering from the tragedy, she isn't dwelling on the past or trying to figure out what drove him to it.

    "I don't think there's a point. It's not important to ask," she told Kate Snow on the Today show on Thursday morning. Looking put-together, but understandably somber, Zelda contined on. "There's no point questioning it and no point blaming anyone for it and there's no point blaming yourself or the world or whatever the case may be because it happened and you have to continue to move and you have to continue to live and manage." That task hasn't been easy for the 25-year-old actress, but she remains optimistic that she will find peace and joy again with time.

    She's also keeping Robin's memory alive by continuing his charitable work.

    The Brown family is asking for prayers.

    On Wednesday, doctors treating Bobbi Kristina Brown attempted to rouse her from a medically induced coma, but, according to CNN and People, she began having seizures when taken off the medications, and she was put back into the coma.

    "Bobby [Brown] is beside himself," a source tells People of the latest development.

  • Katy Perry Pays Respectful Visit to Auschwitz

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    She wrote:

    My heart was heavy today. For ever [sic] let this place be a cry of despair and a warning to humanity, where the Nazi murdered about one and a half million men, women and children mainly Jews from various countries of Europe. Auschwitz - Birkenau 1940-1945 "The one that does not remember history is bound to live through it again" George Santayana.

    Perry struck a remarkably more respectful tone than Justin Bieber did when he visited the Anne Frank house in Amsterdam in 2013 and wrote in the guestbook: "Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber."

    Additional props to Perry for refraining from posting a selfie. Perhaps she learned a lesson from the young woman who caused an uproar this summer when she took a selfie at Auschwitz — and it went viral.

    Are you paying attention, Justin?
