The New York City Ballet opened last night at the David Koch theater at Lincoln Center to a packed house. Out of the plenty of people who attended, two particular couples stood out for us. The first was the the lovely duo of Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman, as you can see on the right. Drew is pregnant, as y’all know, and she covered her bump with a flowing, white Chanel dress, and a black blazer. Will looked sharp in a classic tuxedo. Then there was the incredibly handsome couple of Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied, on the left. Natalie was a vision in Dior, which she wore from head-to-toe. We’re talking that super navy gown, shoes, bag, and earrings, all paired with a Richard Mille watch. Benjamin picked a suit and tie, as opposed to Will. BTW, Natalie and Benjamin are quite familiar with this territory as many scenes from Black Swan were filmed there. Looking good, you guys!

Body-hugging white satin, Eiffel tower framed in the window, photographers snapping pics of your goofy handsome husband literally kneeling at your feet: yup, we couldn’t imagine Mariah Carey‘s vows renewal ceremony any other way. Only four years after locking it down all official like, Mimi and Nick Cannon took their endless love to Paris to pledge themselves to each other for eternity…again. That is so romantic. Plus if you’ve got a white suit, might as well get some use out of it, right? Actually, scratch that. Mariah probably makes Nick wear that to pick up baby wipes. It’s his every day tux!
“[W]e have put together some very festive plans: ) LYM! Can’t wait to see you soon in Paris,” Mimi tweeted slyly earlier this week.The couple are also celebrating the birth of their twins Moroccan and Monroe next week, and you had better believe they will going all out for it. Blue Ivy is going to throw up with jealousy! Or because she’s a baby; one of the two. “[V]ery excited to celebrate #dembabies first birthday in a week, I can’t even believe it’s been a year.. wow!!!,” Carey gushed on Twitter. “Shopping for Roc & Roe’s bday in Paris.. Dembabies dembabies dembabies!” Like amazing diva mother, like amazing diva daughter…and son.

Even though it would be one of the highest compliments a human being could receive, Kanye says he did not call Kim Kardashian his ‘Beyonce.’ As the rapper insisted to Us Weekly this afternoon, “Of course there are a lot of media inaccuracies surrounding this past couple of weeks, especially the ‘She’s my Beyonce‘ quote. I would never compare anyone to my friend’s wife.” That’s a good point, Yeezy. On the other hand, maybe it just slipped out when you were trying to compliment her? You know, like instead of saying “Oh, you look like you were designed by Karl Lagerfeld” or “Oh, it’s like you’re made entirely out of chinchilla fur,” you accidentally compared her to Queen Bey? Let us not pretend you haven’t said all those phrases at some point, Kanye. Let’s not even.
While they might be printing his clarification now, it was also Us Weekly who originally reported Kanye‘s Beyonce comparison in the first place. “They’re perfect for each other. He thinks she’s his Beyonce!,” their source gushed. “Come on now, that doesn’t even sound like me,” Kanye (questionably) claims. “If I don’t say something in a rap or on Twitter, it’s not true.” Well, we’re glad Ye cleared things up at least. You know Jay-Z was feeling so awkward about inviting him over for Game Night this week…

If we were engaged to Olivier Martinez, we would rent a plane and sky-write it over Manhattan…which is probably why we’re not engaged to Olivier Martinez. Halle Berry, however, kept silent about her alleged engagement to the French actor for three months after rumors about their betrothal hit the Interweb. Until this weekend, that is. “Who knew?” Berry laughed while talking with Extra on the Jenesse Center Silver Rose Gala red carpet this past Saturday. “I swore it off, right? Never say never, people!” Halle did apparently vow never to marry again in an interview with InStyle back in 2007, two years after her divorce from singer Eric Benet and ten after splitting with former Yankee David Justice. Who could have guessed Halle Berry would meet a devastatingly handsome Frenchman and fall in love after that? Okay, we could have guessed, but our point is no one could have known for sure.
Halle might have remained mum as to her relationship status, but that doesn’t mean Olivier did. “Yes, of course it’s true,” he said about engagement rumors while promoting his new Miami restaurant Villa Azur in early March. No word on when the happy couple is getting hitched. Whatever the date, rest assured that it will be three or four months before we ever find out about it.

So, after Guns N’ Roses guitarist DJ Ashba denied that Axl Rose is dating Lana Del Rey, despite the fact that the two were seen leaving L.A.’s Chateau Marmont together last week, Del Rey herself seems to be muddying the waters here. She was seen performing at London’s Jazz Cafe and later arriving at London hotspot Shoreditch House wearing a GNR T-shirt and grinning mischievously, leaving us all to wonder if:
A) They are dating, and Axl doesn’t really feel the need to share everything with his bandmembers.
B) She’s just a really big fan, as she indicated with her song, “Axl Rose Husband.”
C) She’s just f—ing with us all.
Any way they’re just dating ironically? Rumors have been swirling about a potential Axl Rose/Lana Del Rey love match after Lana was spotted rocking out at two consecutive Guns N’ Roses concerts in L.A. recently; the pair were most recently seen climbing into the same SUV and leaving Chateau Marmont together last Friday. Um, hoo boy. Uh…maybe Axl just wanted to name of Lana’s colorist? Or to exchange deep conditioning tips? Or to make the moms of the world gasp audibly, then clutch the front of their blouses while shaking their heads in disappointment?
Luckily for us and/or our lunches, Guns N’ Roses guitarist DJ Ashba says the two singers are not bumping strawberry blond uglies. On a related note, we are so, so sorry for that mental image. “I don’t think they’re dating,” Ashba scoffed to TMZ. If you’re thinking their alleged canoodling sounds like, well, the premise of a Lana Del Rey song, you are frighteningly correct. Turns out, Del Rey had previously recorded a little ditty entitled “Axl Rose Husband,” which makes this whole thing feel something ripped from Satan’s vision board. Oh, of course the Lord of the Underworld uses The Secret; how else would these two crazy kids have even met?

Wow, looks like the song worked, Yeezy! Less than a day after we heard Kanye confess to falling love with Kim Kardashian in his new song “Theraflu”, the two love birds have been photographed approximately one million times in each other’s company in New York. Lunching at Serafina’s, shopping at Jeffrey’s, picking up a few things at FAO Schwartz, and that’s just today! Us Weekly reports that Kim and Kanye allegedly spent an evening at the theater last night seeing the Macbeth-inspired show Sleep No More, before mooning over each other during a concert at Manderlay Bar. It must be true love if they are really highly visible, right? Take some notes, Hova and Bey!
But while you could basically make a flip book of Kim and Kanye’s recent romantic adventures, we still can’t tell anything about their relationship. A picture might be worth a thousand words, but do you really think Kanye and Kim are doing much talking? So we used our imagination to fill in the blanks:
Rihanna knows her love life is none of your business. You know Rihanna’s love life is none of your business. We all know Rihanna’s love life is none of our business and, more importantly, we know exactly how RiRi will react if she was suddenly peppered with questions about canoodling Ashton Kutcher: not well. “Will we be seeing a certain Mr. Kutcher perhaps making a trip over here?,” a reporter named Sarah tentatively asked the Talk That Talk singer at the Battleship press conference in London. “Wow, how disappointing was that question,” Rihanna replied in a total deadpan, while fixing the reporter with a withering glare. Please do yourself a favor and watch the video after the jump; RiRi’s ice queen facial reaction is…beyond priceless.
When the panel moderator attempted to move their conversation past the uncomfortable silence, RiRi added, “I’m happy and I’m single, if that’s what you’re really asking.” Haha, it was, Rihanna! Please excuse Sarah while she crawls into this ravine now! Luckily Rihanna was able to laugh it off with costar Brooklyn Decker at the film’s photocall. We’d like to imagine RiRi gasping, “Did you see the look on her face when I said ‘disappointing’? And I didn’t even answer the question! So, so good!”

Hold the frickin’ phone, guys! Couples like these come once in a blue moon, in the manner of The Notebook-esque romance of Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling (Ryachel, for-evah!) You would think that Michelle Williams and Jason Segel in the photograph, in the middle, would be shooting a scene for a movie. That would explain their handsy, canoodling proximity? It turns out that it’s not for a film, so bring on the squees! Michelle and Jason are dating, report US Weekly. They are united in coupledom, so to speak. Could this be any cuter?
Of their relationship, a source has revealed, “They are smitten and very serious.” We wouldn’t want it any other way. Apparently, the two have been pals through Williams bestie Busy Philipps for a couple of years now, but it only recently just went the romance route. They’re on different coasts too — Williams is in Brooklyn and Segel is in L.A — but as the source added, they’re “trying to make it work. She hasn’t been this happy in a long time.” Awww, we’re rooting for them. The photograph of them arm-in-arm was taken just a couple of days ago in Brooklyn, FYI. Segel was also seen helping Williams 6-year-old daughter Matilda on her scooter the very next day. Très adorable! It was on to the West Coast then with dates at the Chateau Marmont and Comme Ca.
Not to put any pressure or anything but … MAKE. IT. WORK. GAIIZZZ! With divorces and break ups happening at an alarming rate, we need to gush over couples like you. McAdams and Gosling left a hole in our hearts that we never thought would heal again until you two decided to take it to the next level. Cupid just got a promotion so let’s make sure he stays there a while!

Despite the fact that he was allegedly seen eating food within a four foot radius of another human being this weekend, Ryan Gosling has not dumped his lady love of six months Eva Mendes. So knock it off with the loud, heart-wrenching sobs already! While the U.K.’s Daily Mail made the argument that Ryan Gosling’s dinner date this weekend with a German model in Cape Town, South Africa implies he is giving Eva the boot, further evidence suggests that Gosling never even left Thailand, where he has been filming the upcoming crime drama Only God Forgives. The whole thing sounded pretty fishy to us; the only place Ryan Gosling can teleport is in our fan fiction! Besides, we assume Ryan dines exclusively with models. It’s not a vanity thing; the man just wouldn’t want to embarrass any of us “normals” by making people compare us to him. It’s really considerate when you think about it.
Fortunately Eva’s rep has since denied to the Daily Mail that the two have split and, according to Us Weekly, a source close to the The Place Beyond The Pines costars also confirms the two are going strong. So does that make you feel better? Hey, hey, hey…who’s our big boy or girl? Here are some Kleenexes. It’s going to be okay.
