Kelly Clarkson Loves Date Nights with Her Hubby

They may be busy parents, but Kelly Clarkson and her hubby, Brandon Blackstock, still make time for romance. Kelly tells People magazine it’s vital to call in a babysitter every once in a while and have a night out with your spouse. “As a couple, we think that date nights are important,” she says. “We are both from broken homes and as a result you may not take time for yourselves as a couple. So we love our date nights.” The singer is mom to 9-month-old daughter River Rose and stepmom to Brandon’s children from a previous relationship, 13-year-old Savannah…

Iggy Azalea Has Only One Line in "Furious 7" Cameo

It probably didn’t take Iggy Azalea long to prepare for her cameo in Furious 7. She only has one line! According to Billboard, the Aussie rapper makes her appearance after Michelle Rodriguez’s character, Letty, who was previously presumed dead, wins a quarter-mile race. A crowd gathers around Letty in celebration and that’s when Iggy delivers her line: "Hey, there's the girl I've heard so much about. Where you been at, ghost girl?" That’s just slightly more than Rita Ora got to say in her blink-and-you’ll-miss it cameo in Fast & Furious 6. Rita also had exactly four short sentences of dialogue…

If you've ever watched Sia's videos for "Chandelier" and "Elastic Heart" and wondered exactly what they mean, you're not alone.  But 12-year-old Maddie Ziegler of Dance Moms, who starred in both of those clips, as well as in the brand-new one for the song "Big Girls Cry," says the reclusive singer/songwriter always tells her exactly what's going on in each video.  According to Maddie, she couldn't dance in them if she didn't know.

On "Ellen," Kelly Clarkson Laughs Off Criticism About Her Weight; Does Bathroom Duet

Taylor Swift & Calvin Harris Get Very Close at HAIM Concert

Taylor Swift's good friends with the sister group HAIM, so it's not surprising she attended their concert Thursday in Hollywood.  HAIM also collaborated with Scottish deejay and producer Calvin Harris on the song "Pray to God" on his latest album, so it's also unsurprising he'd be at the show as well.  But what is surprising is the two not only attended the show together, they made no attempt to hide their apparently budding romance. As E! reports, Taylor was sitting on Calvin's lap during the show, and he had his arms around her.  When the two left, they held hands. …
