Despite the storm of accusations she’s leveled at Kim Kardashian for allegedly stealing away her ex-Kanye West, Amber Rose seems pretty damn happy in the love life department these days. She and rapper boyfriend Wiz Khalifa have been dating for over a year and claim to be on the marriage track. In fact, they already refer to each other as husband and wife! VH1′s very own Janell Snowden caught up with the happy couple on the red carpet of the 2012 Grammy Awards to get the inside scoop.
“We’re not married yet,” Amber insisted. “We’re gonna do it the right way. We’re going to get married and then eventually have kids.” Wiz agreed, saying that the time was getting nearer. “I’m getting pressured. It’s like the fourth quarter, man. It’s getting close,” he said. “But everyone is going to love it when it does happen.”
Now diamonds may normally be a girl’s best friend, but Amber says that’s not the case when it comes to her wedding ring. When asked if she wanted a big rock, she replied that it didn’t matter. “He can wrap a little piece of paper around my finger, it doesn’t matter.” And if your teeth aren’t rotted by the sweet already, they’re about to be. “She’s my one and only,” Wiz chimed in. “We don’t need paperwork or diamonds…It’s going to be a beautiful lifetime.” Check out the video above, because we don’t want you to see us cry. Don’t worry, they’re happy tears.

Rumor has it that Grammy conqueror Adele really made a sex tape. Could it be true? Is there video footage of her rolling in the deep? Setting fire to the sheets?! Chasing pavement!?! We don’t even know what these puns mean anymore. But that’s OK, because apparently none of it’s true. Paparazzo Jean-Claude Elfassi published a report in the French tabloid Public claiming that he possessed a tape of Adele hooking up with the boyfriend that inspired her smash record 21. The article was backed up with cell phone pix purportedly of the British chanteuse “hitting the high notes.” But of course, it’s not really her. It’s just someone like her. Oops.
What’s the french for “sued so hard”? Because that’s exactly what’s gonna happen to Jean-Claude, as Adele is now taking legal action over the false account. She’s approached the famed law firm Schillings to represent her in the suit. “Our client has not appeared in a sex tape as claimed in the article,” they told the Daily Mail. “Our client does not appear in the photographs. Such claims are grossly defamatory.” And with that, we regret to inform you that we’re out of good Adele song puns.

It’s been a busy few days in the world of celeb hair! Last night our beloved Robert Pattinson arrived to the Berlin premiere of Bel Ami looking balder than usual. We know he jettisoned his trademark unruly locks back in January when he appeared at the People’s Choice Awards. But they definitely should have grown in by now, and yet he looks balder than ever!
Kardashian Version 2.0 sister Kendall Jenner posted a pic to her twitter showing off long blonde tresses in the place of her usual brunette. But before we got too used to it, she posted a second photo, dark locks restored. “Still brunette! Don’t worry kids!” We’d been duped. You just can’t trust the Kardashians. She and her little sister Kylie were seen out and about wearing the blonde wigs. Trying to throw off the paparazzi? Or attract attention? The world may never know.
Both of these style changes follow Miley Cyrus‘ dramatic chop earlier this week. She posted a picture to her own twitter on Sunday showing off her new hair ‘do, which definitely seems to be remeinicent of Jennifer Aniston’s famous Friends-era hair. “You likey?” she asked. Well, do you? Get a closer look in the gallery below, and take our poll to let us know who you think works their new look the best!

Kim and Kris, Russell and Katy, Demi and Ashton…We all know it’s been pretty rough out there for celebrity couples. But through it all, there’s one duo who has never faltered. We’re of course talking about BBFs George Clooney and Brad Pitt. These first teamed up on the big screen in 2001′s Ocean’s 11, and they’ve been tight ever since. “Brad is one of the great guys,” George recently told the Hollywood Reporter. Sadly, it seems like their bromance is mostly a long distance affair. “We’re good friends, but it’s different from what people think—meaning we don’t spend a lot of time together. He has been to my home in Como; we motorcycle together. But until recently, I hadn’t seen Brad in a year.” Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Or something like that!
But seriously, these dudes really seem to care about each other, and the enjoyment they get from each other’s company is clear in every picture. They’ve shared screen time, and now for the first time their sharing Oscar nominations! Clooney got the nod for his role as the “back-up parent” in The Descendants, and Brad for his portrayal of Oakland A’s manager and stats wiz Billy Beane in Moneyball. So in honor of their duel moment of glory, let’s take a look back at their most adorably bromantic photos. Enjoy!

Just weeks after cashing in on a mega divorce settlement (though the divorce won’t be finalized for months), it looks like Vanessa Bryant might be feeling the love for husband Kobe once again. The basketball ex-wife was was spotted cheering on her old flame at a Valentine’s Day Lakers game, and TMZ snapped the two sharing a kiss. Is there a reconciliation in there air, or is she just really grateful for those three mansions she’s getting? $75 million worth of property might make you pretty affectionate!
But still, sparks may be flying between the two once more. Stranger things have happened! In fact, many couples in Hollywood have split up before finding themselves drawn together once again. Sometimes it leads to the altar, and sometimes … not so much (looking at you Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer). Check out the gallery below for our 30 favorite off-again-on-again celebrity couples!

Terror never looked as adorable as when Shakira was attacked by a sea lion over the weekend! The hip-shaking singer was touring Cape Town, South Africa, when she spotted the cute but not-so-cuddly creature nearby. As she bent down to say hello, the animal apparently thought that her cell phone was a fish and sprang out of the water with its teeth out. The sea lion took a bite out of her hand before her brother was able to come to her rescue and pull the two apart. Both humans suffered scraped hands and arms. No word on the sea lion’s condition, but we imagine it’s doing all right.
Shakira posted pictures of her injuries to her Facebook in an album hilariously titled “Special Report: Attacked by a Sea Lion.” In the captions she dramatically recounts the incident in vivid detail. “One of [the sea lions] jumped out of the water so fast and impetuously that it got about one foot away from me, looked me in the eye, roared in fury and tried to bite me,” she wrote. She made sure to thank her brother “Super Tony” for saving her life and “taking me away from the beast.”
Sure, the whole ordeal seems like a freak accident, but animals tango with famous people much more often than you might think. Check out the gallery below for more celebrities who have survived awkward run-ins with wildlife!

Have you seen the angel gracing the cover of this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue? Victoria’s Secret Angel, that is! Our prayers have been answered and mega-hottie model Kate Upton has been tapped to appear on the cover of SI‘s prestigious bikini edition. It’s like the Oscars for the only people in the world who are even more attractive than Hollywood A-Listers!
Although she was named Rookie of the Year in last year’s issue, there was some question as to whether Kate would make the front page. Some feared that she was simply too young and hadn’t paid enough dues to receive the honor. But we guess the peeps at SI used their brains (and their eyes!), as Kate victoriously unveiled the new cover last night on the David Letterman Show.
They say that all computer programming is just a bunch of ones and zeros. If that’s so, head to the gallery below for the hottest collection of ones and zeros you’ve ever seen! We’ve got 20 reasons why Kate Upton not only deserved the cover, but the title of Hottest Bikini Babe In History too. Enjoy!

Obviously the tragic death of Whitney Houston on Saturday cast a long shadow over last night’s Grammy Awards. But that’s not to say that music’s biggest night was completely somber. All we had to do was look at celeb BFFs Rihanna and Katy Perry to feel our spirits lift! The two pop queens have been friends for years, and made sure to get seats next to each other in L.A.’s massive Staples Center arena. Awww! We used to do the same thing with our best friend during middle school! Except that was during lunch time and not Grammy night. But same difference.
The ladies are as close as two always-on-the-go superstars can be. Riri organized Katy’s bachelorette party prior to her (sadly short-lived) marriage to Russell Brand. Katy apparently even asked her to strip for it! “When I met her, it was such a breath of fresh air,” Rihanna gushed to Glamour magazine in 2011. “I just couldn’t believe this chick had no edit button.” So in honor of their friendship, we’ve put together a little scrap book of the pair’s cutest photos! Ok, “cute” is a relative term when dealing with these rock ‘n’ roll bad girls. Hence the shot of them flipping the bird. But the pix are still pretty heart warming. Check out more in the gallery below!
