Madonna is one of many celebrities mourning the death of designer L'Wren Scott, who was found dead in her New York City apartment Monday morning of an apparent suicide.  After a career as a model, the statuesque Scott, who stood six-feet, four-inches tall, became a designer, creating outfits for Madonna as well as Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence. Scott designed the so-called "Headmistress" dress, a black-and-white wool number which became one of Madonna's most notable looks.

John Legend is having a moment: his romantic ballad "All of Me" has become his first Top 10 pop hit, and he's also a newlywed, having tied the knot with model Chrissy Teigen, this past September.  Now John, who we saw last month duetting with Alicia Keys on the Beatles tribute special on CBS, is making plans for his next big collaboration.

As Battle Rounds Begin, Adam Levine Defends "The Voice": "I Think It's a Win for Everybody"

The Battle Rounds begin tonight on NBC's The Voice, but six seasons in, coach Adam Levine is still defending the hit show from accusations that it's flawed because it's failed to produce any chart-topping stars.  According to Adam, selling as many albums as some American Idol winner isn't the only way contestants on The Voice should define success. "People say, 'Oh, you have to be as big as so-and-so to be considered successful.'  That's not true," insists Adam. "Y'know, millions of people are exposed to these singers every day, and someone can go home -- but they go home with…

Enrique Iglesias Says Marrying Anna Kournikova Isn't "Going to Make Us Any Happier"

Enrique Iglesias has been dating ex-tennis pro Anna Kournikova for what seems like forever -- well, since at least 2001 or so -- but the two have yet to tie the knot.  Now, Enrique reveals that he figures since they've been together for so long, it doesn't make a difference if he puts a ring on it.

"American Idol's" Latest Booted Contestant: Judges "Threw Me Under the Bus"

It's common on American Idol for the judges to encourage contestants to step outside the box and show different sides of themselves.  But when one contestant did that this week, he was booted off the show.  Now, Ben Briley, who was ejected from the competition Thursday night, is calling the judges out on their perceived hypocrisy. Ben changed things up on Wednesday night by removing his ever-present ballcap, putting down his guitar and not performing a country song.  Instead, he sat at the piano, wearing a suit and slicked back hair, and sang the Elton John hit "Bennie and the…
