A cat lady: You know her as the old woman who lives a life of seclusion save for an abundance of furry, feline friends. Her pastimes include knitting with her kittens, watching re-runs of old soap operas, and seldom leaving the house. But this, my friends, is merely a misconstrued stereotype. Some of Tinseltown’s most purrfect celebrities are certifiably crazy about their cats. And you don’t see them knitting sweaters and eating cat food… Read more…
Getting hungry? We thought you might be. These celebrity foodies are not only talented and beautiful, but they’ve got an eye for color, flavor and mmm mmm goodness. Whether it’s Kendall Jenner flaunting her sinfully delicious French toast (topped with warm caramel and Rice Krispies…) or Aziz Ansari boasting his crispy mozzarella, pork sausage and cilantro thin crust pizza, we can’t get enough of these food-celebratory photos.

On January 1st we can start a clean slate and draft our ever crucial new year’s resolutions. Whether or not we actually achieve those goals is another matter (we’ve yet to do 2012’s spring cleaning). Nevertheless, it’s always a fun challenge to set them for ourselves…and also for our friends in Hollywood. Just like us, our celebs could use a little goal setting for 2013. Just like your mother says, we do it because we love you. Here’s our resolutions to the stars, and -most importantly- Happy New Year!
Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling – We know one of Hollywood’s hottest couples is costarring in The Place Beyond the Pines in 2013 together. However, after watching the two show their comedy chops in the latest Drunk History clips, we cannot wait to see more of these two collaborate. We know the duo has some off screen chemistry, and the silver screen may not even be able to handle the hotness between them. We have a proposition for these two for 2013: more projects together, please!
Jemi is no more! Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato have confirmed that they broke up on Monday after a just a few months of dating. And unlike with his ex, Taylor Swift, this split didn’t happen on the phone. Lovato tweeted, “There are so many crazy rumors flying around today. Joe and I did split, but it wasn’t over the phone.. Things didn’t work out but we’ll remain friends.” Lovato also slammed rumors that she’s already seeing someone post-break-up saying, “I am NOT dating anybody already.” Followed by the ubiquitous, “Nothing is more important to me than the relationship I have with my fans.”
But why Jemi, why? You were so adorable together? Joe clarified, “Demi and I knew going into our romantic relationship that it may not be an easy one. I realize over the time we have shared together that I feel I care more about our friendship right now. It was my choice to breakup, but I love her as a friend. She’s been there for me when I needed her. I will continue to be her friend and be there for her.” Ah. Young Love. So fickle, yet so sweet. And the whole friendship thing better work out, because they’re touring together this summer!
But… and there’s always a but… the split might not be set in stone. A source let on, “She’s a strong girl. They are so young…I wouldn’t count them out yet.”

Beyoncé had an intense 2009 and is pretty burned out as a result. You’d be tired too if you had an 11-month touring schedule, were upstaged by your male “Single Ladies” dancers on SNL, performed for Barack Obama‘s inauguration, and had to allow Taylor Swift to finish her VMA acceptance speech all in one calendar year. Now that it’s 2010, Ms. Knowles is taking some much-needed time off.
Beyoncé has confirmed that once her I am... world tour ends next month, she’ll be taking some “me” time, explaining “It’s definitely time to take a break, to recharge my batteries. I’d like to take about six months and not go into the studio. I need to just live life, to be inspired by things again. I’m going to do random things. I want to go to restaurants, maybe take a class and see some movies and Broadway shows.” And maybe get pregnant? Because seriously, the spawn of Beyoncé and Jay-Z would probably be the most musically-gifted child ever.
We hope Beyoncé enjoys her sabbatical and in the meantime, we’ll just be watching babies dance to “Single Ladies” on YouTube to get our fix. [Photo: Getty Images]
The way we see it, Lady Gaga‘s life is already a fantastic work of imagination with a touch of disco sticks. (Check out Gaga’s 100 Hottest Outfits of 2009 to admire her out-of-this-world fashion sense.) However, her everyday outlandishness is not stopping her from upping the ante and turning herself into an actual comic book character.
Bluewater Productions, a publisher of unconventional comic books (previous titles include a series called “Female Force” about such women as J.K. Rowling and Michelle Obama, and “Political Power” featuring comic hero Ted Kennedy), is creating a new series called “Fame” and will be highlighting a different celeb in each installment. Gaga’s will be out in May, and other celebrities who will be immortalized in ink include Taylor Swift and David Beckham. Even though we think celebrities already lead imaginary lives worth reading about, we can get on board with illustrated Lady Gaga (er, and shirtless David Beckham) fan fiction.
