Adam Levine continues his parade of gorgeous girlfriends as it’s revealed that he’s secretly stepping out with Gossip Girl actress Amanda Setton! It’s been only a few months since his split with Victoria’s Secret angel Behati Prinsloo, but he’s got his groove back yet again.
Awards Season 2013 kicked off tonight with the People’s Choice Awards on CBS, and while we didn’t get any nip slips or f-bombs or other kind of flubs, host Kaley Cuoco and a cavalcade of stars kept it moving with some solid banter. From Ellen DeGeneres‘ Mayan prediction to Chris Colfer‘s fanfic shout-out, our favorite gems (other than Sandra Bullock‘s tear-jerking Favorite Humanitarian Award’s speech; we’re not going to try to recapture it) included…
After last year’s mega success “Moves Like Jagger” alongside fellow Voice judge Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera seemed poised to make a musical comeback on her own two feet. Then Lotus happened. The album may have a few scattered supporters, it didn’t do so hot over all, earning the lowest first week sales of her career. Oof.
So there’s that. But this year wasn’t all that bad in X-tina Land! She was given the ALMA Award for her work in charity, and even got “admired” by Secretary of State Hilary Clinton! She may be taking a year long hiatus from her judging chair on The Voice, but she still found time to team up with Cee Lo Green on “Baby It’s Cold Outside” for his Christmas album extravaganza, Cee Lo’s Magic Moment. So in all, it’s been a mixed year for Christina. But through it all, one this has remained constant: Her fabulous hair! So to celebrate her 32nd birthday today, we’ve assembled some of her greatest hair styles of this year, and every year. Enjoy!

Love is a battlefield, and 2012 was not immune the heart’s harsh ways. Celebrity relationships had a tough go at things this year and saw a record number of sad splits (Amy Poehler and Will Arnett), shocking divorces (Heidi Klum and Seal) and close-call almost breakups (Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson). But 2012 also saw a few reconciliations (Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez), giving us hope for 2013. Browse through our gallery of the 20 biggest breakups of 2012 and tell us which split was the most devastating to watch.
American Horror Story’s second season, “Asylum”, premiered last night with with more scares, sex, and mystery than ever. While returning cast members like Jessica Lange and Evan Peters are back in full creepy mode, there are many new faces to this season, which can only mean new characters to enter into the twisted world that is Ryan Murphy’s imagination. Among the new cast includes Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine! In honor of his smooth transition from the soulful crooner to brooding actor, we are recapping this season’s premiere episode with corresponding Maroon 5 songs because, come on, some of these dark characters might just need a bit of upbeat rhythm in their lives!
Reality television gets a bad rap. Many wonder how so many nobodies with questionable talent can become some of the most famous people in the world (hey, Honey Boo Boo!). And then they wonder, “How can I do the same?” Well, we don’t have the answer to that question, but what we do have is a roundup of the best reality-TV shows hitting the tube this fall. Whether you’re a dancing fanatic, a Demi Lovatic or obsessed with JWOWW’s ample assets, there’s a little something for everyone. The Epcot Center of the tube, if you will. Check out our picks below and then tell us what you’ll be watching this fall.
Can you believe Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo Green and Blake Shelton have been blindly auditioning contestants in our living rooms for three seasons now? We can barely remember a time before we had to choose between Team Adam and Team Christina. Thankfully, the bickering foursome is back to in their swiveling chairs on a quest to find The Voice (duh!). And it’s not secret that NBC is hoping to deliver a ratings smackdown to Fox’s The X Factor in the process. Our opinion: We love Xtina, but our money’s on Britney. Premiering September 10, 11, 12 at 8 on NBC, airing Mondays and Tuesdays at 8.
What the Critics Say: “The Voice promises big changes this year – hopefully they live up to it in a major way because it would be a shame to see the series over-saturate the brand and not make adjustments to ensure its longevity like [American] Idol has somehow managed to do.” –– Assignment X
The X Factor
Britney. Spears. Need we say more? Clearly, we don’t, but we will anyway. It’s been years since we’ve heard Brit Brit speak more than a few sentences, let alone offer up her opinion. Simon Cowell tells People.com, “[She] is a fascinating person because you just don’t know anything about her … she’s very unpredictable … she has taken this very seriously and she’s surprisingly quite mean.” Any show where a “mean” Britney Spears joins forces with hair-chameleon Demi Lovato has us hooked. Premiering September 12, airing Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. on Fox.
What the Critics Say: “Curiosity is enough to drive The X Factor to a ratings win tonight. If Britney can help the troubled show find its footing, don’t be surprised if she breaks out a rendition of ‘Oops! … I Did It Again’ and maybe even cracks a smile. –– Boston Herald
Remember the time you had an idea for a super cool product, but didn’t have enough money to make it happen? Shark Tank takes everyday people with great –– and sometimes not so great –– ideas and gives them a forum to pitch their products to a group of “sharks,” successful businessmen and women with fat wallets, who will invest in their companies. Sounds extremely nerdy and boring, but Shark Tank is anything but. It was nominated in the non-competition reality show category at this year’s Primetime Emmys and features Dallas Mavericks owner –– and noted hothead –– Mark Cuban. Cancel your Friday night plans and dive in. Premiering September 14, airing Fridays at 8 p.m. on ABC; moving to 9 p.m. on November 2.
What the Critics Say: “The tension between the Sharks is palpable. The entrepreneurs more confident. The deals less formulaic. In many ways Shark Tank has become the American Idol of the small business startup.” — Forbes
Donnie Wahlberg, we appreciate the shirtlessness you’re bringing to Twitter. The lip sweaters, not so much. “After 3 months cultivating, countless insults, thousands of requests to shave the #stache,” Donnie tweeted, along with a photo of New Kids on the Block sporting a set of virile mustaches. Countless requests to shave, you say? Yeah, that seems about right. While we’re not going to pretend they’re all suddenly gargoyles now that they’re sporting a little lip magic (Hello, Joey McIntyre. You seem to be doing…very well), overall it’s not a great look.
Of course, Donnie and the gang aren’t the only hot dudes whose facial hair lowers their babe quotient. We know! It doesn’t really make any sense! We love guys with ‘staches and beards as much as you do! But from Leo DiCaprio to Tom Sturridge, Shia LaBeouf to Ben Affleck, we guess some guys just look better clean-shaven. Guys like…
Looks like Adam Levine found a way to soothe his broken heart after breaking up with his girlfriend of two years, Victoria’s Secret model Anne V: Dating another Victoria’s Secret model! The singer/Voice judge/super-hot-lady magnet was snapped kissing, holding hands and joking around with 23-year-old Namibian VS Pink girl Behati Prinsloo earlier this week, where he was attending a friend’s wedding.
While the Daily Mail brings up how awkward it’ll be in the dressing room for the next VS shoot, we would like to focus on something else: How absolutely adorable Prinsloo is. The model, who’s covered several European Vogue and Elle issues and posed for everyone from the Gap to Zac Posen, not only tweets out super cute pics of herself, she seems to have a blast in front of the cameras at red carpets and on the runway. Check out this little collection we put together, and insert a “Moves Like Jagger” joke here:
Some major television star power showed up at the NBC Upfront preview party in New York on Monday, representing a fair amount of our favorite shows and new ones we can’t wait to see. One of those would be Parks and Recreation and the shows lead, Amy Poehler looked like a stone cold fox in a Nicole Miller dress, House of Lavande jewelry and an All Saints leather jacket. Other funny ladies, Up All Night co-stars Maya Rudolph and Christina Applegate also represented. Eva Longoria was glam in a deep red Alberta Ferretti dress with Brian Atwood pumps. She probably made sure not to stand right next to Jenny McCarthy, whose sexy fuchsia shift would have clashed horribly next to it!
Other glam ladies included Law & Order: SVU‘s Mariska Hargitay wearing a white Victoria Beckham dress. She happily posed with co-stars Ice-T and Kelli Giddish. Katharine McPhee wore a floral Dolce & Gabbana dress, repp’ing Smash. Jamie-Lynn Sigler looked fine in a red Nonoo jumpsuit and posed with her Guys With Kids producer Jimmy Fallon. That was just the tip of the iceberg at this Upfront, so head on to the gallery for the whole deal. Of course, the Fox Upfront happened on the same day in the same city, and we know that Britney Spears and Demi Lovato were officially presented as the newest judges on The X Factor there. Did the rest of that network’s star power match up? Click over to our Fox gallery and compare!

Jennifer Love Hewitt is a very, shall we say, outgoing woman. She loves prancing about in lingerie for Maxim (and showing off her assets everywhere else she can, too). She’s game for playing a prostitute in her new Lifetime series, The Client List. And she’s not afraid to put herself out there in the dating pool. In an interview for today’s Ellen DeGeneres Show, she told Ellen that while she likes being single “I always have my eyes out” for a new man. Actually, she has her eyes out for one man in particular.
“I just read two days ago that Adam Levine is single again. I’m just saying,” Hewitt said. In response, DeGeneres pulled out a phone, acting like she was about to call the Maroon 5 frontman and Voice coach, who just split from his supermodel girlfriend, Anne V.
