Taylor Swift Uses Cat to Entice Fans to Buy Ed's Album, Ed Congratulates Pal Courteney Cox

Madonna Fails to Make "Forbes'" Celebrity 100 List of Most Powerful Entertainers

Adam Levine's "Begin Again" Co-Star Could Have Been Adele

Begin Again, the movie in which Adam Levine makes his big-screen acting debut, arrives in theaters in New York and L.A. on Friday, and opens nationwide next week.  Adam's co-star in the film is Oscar nominee Keira Knightley, but the movie's director says if things had been different, there's a chance it could have been Adele.
