Channing Tatum shares cryptic posts about being 'destroyed' and rebuilding
Channing Tatum appears to be in rebuilding mode as 2020 gets underway. In the wake of his December split from singer Jessie J, the "Magic Mike" star shared three posts on his Instagram Story about summoning the courage to move forward. One post showed a tiny chipmunk (or sugar glider, depending on whose account of the now-expired post you go by) fighting a large cat. "Me getting ready and grappling with this new year and decade," Channing wrote on the video, according to E! News. "Let's go. It's on!" A second post was a quote that read, "I have been destroyed in a thousand ways, and now, I know a thousand ways to rebuild myself." He captioned a third post — a photo of a guy being bitten by a snake — "How unbothered I'm trying to be in 2020." The posts come on the heels of Channing's split from singer Jessie J, whom he started dating more than a year prior, and the finalization of his divorce from Jenna Dewan in November. Channing and Jessie are "still really close and still good friends," according to an Us Weekly source; Jenna is currently expecting her first child with boyfriend Steve Kazee (she and Channing share custody of their 6-year-old daughter, Everly). A few days news of Channing and Jenna's divorce becoming official broke, Channing shared another soul-searching message on his Instagram. It was a screenshot from The Pattern app that read, "You're in the middle of a life-changing time period. The intention is transformation but try not to judge the way in which this happens. Even though it may feel uncomfortable, what you're going through is intentional. What seems bad could end up being the best thing for you, so don't fight against the current. You're halfway through the ten months in this cycle." In his caption, Channing wrote that he'd "always wondered what it would be like to get hit by lightning," adding, "bring it, good lightning, bring it."
Taylor Swift says she probably couldn't forgive anyone who hurt Selena Gomez
Over the summer, Taylor Swift landed in the news after she liked a Tumblr post in which someone slammed Justin Bieber for reportedly cheating on her longtime friend Selena Gomez when they were together. As Taylor recently told WSJ magazine for a feature pegged to Selena's forthcoming album, "Rare," Taylor won't abide by anyone who causes Selena pain. "I knew from when I met her I would always have her back," Taylor said. "In my life, I have the ability to forgive people who have hurt me. But I don't know if I can forgive someone who hurts her." Taylor's also made that impulse clear to Selena over time. "There's so much of my friendship with Taylor that people don't know about because we don't necessarily feel the need to post about everything we do," Selena shared. "She has showed up for me in ways that I would have never expected. Flown in because I was hurt and was going through something. Stuff that was going on with my family. It's been proven year after year and in every moment of my life that she is one of my best friends in the world." Selena added: "We don't agree on everything, but we respect each other with everything." "Rare," Selena's first album since 2015, is due out Friday, Jan. 10.

Cameron Diaz doesn't plan to hire a nanny for new baby
New mom Cameron Diaz has no intention of hiring help for her new baby girl, Raddix Madden, whom she and Benji Madden recently welcomed. "Cameron wants to spend every second with the baby," a source tells People. Cameron's spent the past few years enjoying a break from acting, something she told InStyle in 2019 she needed after having "given more than half of my life to the public." Cameron and Benji tied the knot in 2015 and have spent much of their marriage under the radar. In their surprise announcement about Raddix, they said they planned to avoid sharing photos and much else about their little girl for the sake of her privacy. Said People's source: "Their close friends are extremely loyal, so it's not strange that they were able to keep it quiet."
Zoe Kravitz says her commitment to Karl Glusman 'feels safe'
Now that she's married to Karl Glusman, Zoe Kravitz takes comfort in knowing the two will work out whatever minor issues may come up between them. "Karl has his own career and needs to focus on that, but we've been together for a few years now, and we know where we are," she says in the February 2020 edition of Elle. "If anything, the best part of being married is being able to have the odd fight and knowing neither of us is going to walk out the door. The commitment feels safe." Zoe also opens up about her childhood in the issue, speaking openly about her struggles as the daughter of celebrity parents, Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet. "I didn't like my new school. I didn't feel like I fit in anywhere, and I was surrounded by an enormous amount of beauty and posturing," she recalls when asked about living with her dad in Miami. "I was a chunky, perfectly normal-looking 15-year-old, but I had this remarkably beautiful skinny mother and a father who was dating a supermodel, and I felt short and ungainly." Those feelings ultimately contributed to an eating disorder. "I'm OK now. But I am very vigilant," she said, explaining that she battled bulimia for ten years and went to therapy for help. "It's a disease, and I never let myself forget that."
Julianne Hough's husband says he's 'stepping into a new chapter' amid split rumors
Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich's marriage of two years could be in trouble if Us Weekly's sources are correct. After Julianne was spotted without her wedding ring on multiple occasions, insiders told the magazine the couple was "having problems" in December. Although Brooks wore his ring in a recent workout video on social media, some of his posts have fueled split rumors, including one in which he said he wants to be "open to all things and present in my relationships" and to learn "more about intimacy and my sexuality." On Tuesday, Jan. 7, he got candid about his personal life again, writing: "In 2020 I look forward to releasing old identities, and stepping into a new chapter in my life. … I feel a new stage of life calling me, and though I don't exactly know what it is yet, it feels right, and exciting! … In 2020, I am 'boundless' and on a new journey." Whatever may be happening in their relationship, Julianne seems to be supportive of his plans to change. In the comments to his post this week, the "Dancing With the Stars" veteran wrote, "So beautiful" along with a red heart Emoji.
Gisele Bundchen opens up about her mantras for self-acceptance and combatting stress
As the world heads into a new decade, Gisele Bundchen is sharing some of the mantras that have helped her deal with her own demons, including major anxiety and panic attacks. In a new interview with Elle, the model explains that meditation has become central to her life and that ultimately, self-acceptance is the only way to go. "You are the creator of your reality. No one can make choices for you, you have to decide," she says. "We believe that we have to look a certain way or do a certain thing to be accepted, but that's not the case and that's unnecessary stress," Gisele continues. "We have to be at peace with who we are because we are unique and special. Remember, there is only one you. There are seven and a half billion people on the planet, but there's only one you so honor that. Cherish that. You are special.
Judge denies Lisa Marie Presley's request to take daughters to Elvis' birthday celebration
Lisa Marie Presley's 11-year-old twins Finlay and Harper were barred by a judge from joining their mom at a birthday event this week for her late father, Elvis Presley. According to The Blast, Lisa Marie filed emergency documents requesting permission to take the girls to Memphis, Tennessee, for the Elvis Birthday Proclamation Ceremony. Because of a custody order, neither she nor the kids' dad, Michael Lockwood, may travel out of state without the consent of both parents or the court. A judge in Los Angeles reportedly found the birthday celebration did not constitute an "emergency." Lisa Marie and Michael filed for divorce in 2016. They're due in court in July to work out details regarding custody, visitation and child support. Elvis would have turned 85 on Wednesday.
William Shatner spotted wearing wedding ring nearly a year after separating from his wife, Elizabeth
It's been almost a year since William Shatner split from his wife of 18 years, Elizabeth Shatner. And although the 88-year-old "Star Trek" actor filed for divorce last month, when he stepped out to do some shopping in the Bel-Air section of Los Angeles with his daughter this week, the Daily Mail noticed he was wearing his gold wedding ring. As of early December, the pair's divorce was reportedly "almost a done deal," as they had an "ironclad prenup" and share no children.
Larry David doesn't get why 'Seinfeld' continues to appeal after all these years
Larry David feels a little misunderstood. "People are under the wrong impression when it comes to me being happy or not," he tells GQ in the magazine's February cover story. "I think most people think that I'm miserable. Or that I'm a very disgruntled person. But I'm not. I have a very good disposition. I don't think I'm a bad guy. I'm honest. I'm not mean. I'm never cruel. Come up with one example where I've done something bad. I don't think you'll find it." The negativity, of course, likely comes from the characters Larry's created on "Curb Your Enthusiasm," which begins its tenth season this month, and "Seinfeld," which recently headed to Netflix for a rumored $500 million. "Seinfeld," by the way, confuses the 72-year-old show creator. "I want someone to explain it to me," he says. "I really don't get [the enduring appeal], other than — and it's not very profound — it's funny. And when something's funny. People like it." "Curb Your Enthusiasm" returns to HBO on Jan. 19.
