And what is Emma Stone doing in Brooklyn? All this plus new photos from The Bling Ring and casting news for Divergent in this morning’s “While You Were Sleeping”.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Or not, depending on how you feel about the holiday. And listen, we know there are a lot of singletons out there who are not so pleased about how much we in the media focus on this holiday. But we can’t help it, OK? We cover divorces and breakdowns and deaths and fights all the time, and it’s really nice to have a day that’s all about the important things in life. (No, not the unveiling of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, though that’s nice too.) We just really want to escape from it all and look at Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez nuzzling each other. We would like to soak in the happiness that is Adam Lambert and Sauli Koskinen’s love, bask in Jay-Z and Beyonce’s adorable glory, shiver with delight at the perpetual hotness of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, and marvel at the lasting power of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. We are hoping some of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s world-saving affection will rub off on us. And we’re even going to allow for some admiration of Tom Brady and Gisele Bunchen, football loyalties aside.
But here’s some good news for you black-hearted V-day haters: The last time we did a best couples gallery, back in December, one of those couples announced their divorce a few days later. Oh, no! What have we done?!?

We’re pretty much refusing to believe Star magazine’s report that Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s marriage is on the rocks — partly because our hearts can’t take any more celebrity divorces, partly because we haven’t seen any other corroboration. GossipCop says a source close to the couple calls the rumor completely false. But after Demi and Ashton, Katy and Russell, Heidi and Seal — need we go on? — we’re just a little gun-shy. So, don your rose-colored glasses with us and review the timeline of this match made in ’90s rocker heaven.
1995: Gwen and Gavin meet when No Doubt and Bush tour together (with the Goo Goo Dolls! Oh, the ’90s). Gavin described their first date to Details: “I threw a party in New Orleans just as an excuse to hang out with her. We drank a bunch of hurricanes and went around the French Quarter. We had our first kiss that night, just walking around, being careful to step over the puddles of pee. The next day we had that sort of cute, embarrassed, sober meet-up.”
2002: Gavin and Gwen get married.
Can we be friends with Kingston Rossdale, please? Mom Gwen StefaniÂ may have picked his clothes out initially, but we have a feeling he’d doing his wardrobe all by himself now. Mr. Kingston accompanied his mum and dad, Gavin Rossdale, to his grandparents house for Thanksgiving in L.A. yesterday. And he wore this dapper bowtie and blazer combination for the occasion. If his grandpa and grandma didn’t melt looking at him, then we’ll do it for them.
While we on the East Coast were getting pummeled into submission by mother nature, Gwen Stefani took advantage of the beautiful California weather this weekend visited the beach with her family. And of course for us, that translates to one thing: bikini pics. The 41-year old rocker and mother of two (!) showed off her fantastic and flawless abs in a tiny bikini top while holding hands with husband Gavin Rossdale. And of course her cuties Kingston and Zuma Rossdale were on hand to pump up the adorability factor. Too bad Gavin brought it right back down again with his Steven Seagal ponytail. Check out the gallery below for more fun in the sun!

Correction — they’re way cooler than all of us. Brothers Kingston and Zuma Rossdale had a super chill weekend in West Hollywood. Parents Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani made sure they had lots going on including visits to a craft center and ice cream stops! On Kingston’s to-do list was a new hair cut which he debuted on Saturday. Check out that punk blue mohawk! He’s pulling it off better than adults five times his age! Brother Zuma, on the other hand, rocked it out on a drum set, proving that he might just have his parents’s musical genes! These two have got to be the coolest kids in the playpen. Do you have a favorite? Because we can’t decided who we love more!
While we’re sorry to hear that Zuma Rossdale broke his arm late last week after falling from a countertop (“It was one of the worst nights of our lives,” said father Gavin Rossdale. “He’s fine….It’s almost worse for us [as parents]…The kids are never alone and you turn your back—it takes a split second”), we’re glad the injury didn’t keep Gwen Stefani‘s little guy from enjoying a petting zoo in Studio City, CA this weekend. The trooper also visited a farmer’s market, held a balloon, and ate shaved ice, because injury or no injury, Zuma and brother Kingston Rossdale are photo op champions. See more pics of Zuma in the gallery below.

If star spotting are your thing then you should have been in Malibu yesterday. Celebrities were dotted all over the place — with their kids and significant others — from the beach to parks, and it looked like the ideal way to celebrate Memorial Day. Katie Holmes and Suri had a whale of a time on the beach, as did Gavin Rossdale, Gwen Stefani and their two sons Kingston and Zuma. Also seen enjoying the surf with their kids were Marcia Cross and her daughters, and a preggers Tori Spelling. Spelling had rented a seaside home with her husband Dean McDermott.
Doing the whole beach party thing sans kids were a very pregnant January Jones and Barbra Streisand, who attended the same party. Cisco Adler and his wife also caught some sun. Checking out Malibu playgrounds and parks were Adam Sandler and his daughters (as seen in the picture above), as well as Alessandra Ambrosio and her daughter Anja. We hope you had a great long weekend too!

This is the life! The eighteenth annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala took place yesterday at the Cannes Film Festival. The super schmancy event was held at the Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France and involved the usual — gowns and jewelry worth approximately three of our lifetimes! Kirsten Dunst showed up looking as fresh as a daisy, completely unaffected by the rumor that her nighttime partying kept Brangelina up all night.
Janet Jackson looked pretty svelte and rocked some bright blue nail polish! Irina Shayk showed up with a slit cut up till there, while cuties Dev Patel and Frieda Pinto snuggled up for the cameras. Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani added a bit of punk to the proceedings while old hands Goldie Hawn and Brooke Shields looked flawless in dull gold and white respectively. Join us in our envy by taking a look at the photos below. We’re making margaritas!

It’s a shame Scarlett Johansson didn’t show up to support Sean Penn at the Tree Of Life premiere today at Cannes—then we would have had three Hollywood power couples on display! With the amped-up Terrence Malick booers sated by this morning’s screening, hopefully tonight’s viewing will be a little less intense. On top of the expected appearance of star Brad Pitt (trading the morning’s turtle-shell shades for a darker pair) and Angelina Jolie—banging in a giant Versace gown—Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale also walked the red carpet. While we can’t say we’re in love with Gwen’s sparkly, lowwwwwwww-cut pantsuit, we understand the pressure any lady that steps on Angelina’s red carpet must be under. Gavin’s blue suit certainly looks submissive to Brad’s tux.
See photos of both couples, Sean Penn and other stars like Zoe Saldana at the premiere—no sign of Life director Terrence Malick, though. He’s so shy!
