Romance rumors hit Demi Lovato, G-Eazy as fans wonder if he cheated on Halsey
Is Demi Lovato seeing newly single rapper, G-Eazy? In an oddly unexplained, last-minute switch, Us Weekly took down a story claiming Demi and G-Eazy were spotted holding hands as they left the Warwick in Hollywood around 2 a.m. on Saturday, July 14. Cosmo points out the photo the outlet used didn't show G-Eazy's face, making the report a bit dubious. But given some of Halsey's recent statements (and tears) about splitting from her boyfriend of nine months this summer, it does seem as if the singer is coming out of her relationship feeling a bit betrayed. On the same night Demi and G-Eazy were allegedly seen clutching paws over the weekend, Halsey opened up to fans about her breakup in Atlantic City, New Jersey. "I learned recently it's OK to be alone! Being alone is enough," she said, according to Us. "The second lesson I learned is don't sleep with your ex." A source previously told Us the two had called it quits because their schedules kept them apart too much. When Halsey mysteriously tweeted a scissors Emoji and the words "pumpkin eater" (as in "cheater, cheater …"), fans leapt to the conclusion that she was referencing the rapper's lyric about cutting off a certain part of anatomy should she catch him cheating.

Taylor Swift superfans get engaged backstage at her hometown concert
Taylor Swift wasn't the only one feeling nostalgic before she took the stage in Philadelphia on her Reputation tour on Saturday, July 14. The singer — who was born in nearby Reading, Pennsylvania, and shared a pic of her childhood home ahead of herPhilly shows — was stunned when a pair of Swifty superfans got engaged right in front of her. "They walk into the meet and greet and he says 'We met 5 years ago at the Red Tour' and then….. 😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻," she captioned a photo of the moment, adding the hashtag, "#thirdwheel." It turns out the groom-to-be, identified only as Anthony online, started preparing for his proposal back in early June, when he launched an anonymous Twitter account in the hopes of getting Taylor to see the proposal plans. "We have spent countless hours listening to her music together. I can't thank Taylor enough for bringing us closer," he tweeted. After his lady said "yes," he added, "[Taylor] called me a baller and said that she is never surprised. She also said we were incredible and to go get married!!!! IS THIS REAL LIFE?!?!" he gushed in another post. After the concert, Taylor shared a photo of Lincoln Financial Field, captioning it, "PHILLY I LOVE YOU!!!! This hometown crowd 😍😍😍 See you again tonight for round 2!!"
Kylie Jenner hatched her plan for Lip Kits at just 17
At 20, Kylie Jenner is already a mother and a business woman worth upwards of $900 million, so perhaps it's no surprise she started preparing for her future at a young age. "She had a plan for Kylie Cosmetics when she was 17 and said, 'OK, Mom, I want you to sit down," Kris Jenner recalls in a new interview with TMZ's Harvey Levin for "OBJECTified." "'I finally figured out what I want to do for the rest of my life,'" Kylie continued, according to Kris. "And she said, 'It's going to be makeup. I want to do my own makeup. And I want to do a lip kit, and this is what I want to do, and these are the three colors. And she had meetings, she knew exactly who she wanted and executed it. And I think 10 minutes later, her product was sold out." Forbes recently declared Kylie's on track to become the "youngest self-made billionaire ever, male or female." While some of taken issue with the claim Kylie, who was born into a wealthy family, is "self-made," her sister, Kim Kardashian West, defended her this week, telling Refinery29, "I really didn't get it, because she is 'self-made' — we are all 'self-made.' What, because we came from a family that has had success?" she asked. "To me, that doesn't really make sense. … I know so many people like that [who] haven't turned out to be as successful as Kylie. If anything, I've seen the complete opposite."
Brookyln Beckham is deferring college for a photography internship
Brooklyn Beckham is reportedly taking a break from school. After studying photography for one year at New York City's Parsons School of Design, David and Victoria Beckham's eldest son is reportedly deferring his place in college and switching gears to take advantage of an internship opportunity. According to the Mirror, the 19-year-old has signed on to work for "a respected British photographer" whose name has not been made public. News of the change comes a few months after professional offers started coming his way. The Mirror quotes a source as saying Brooklyn may have been "homesick" and "feeling lonely" in the Big Apple, although previous reports suggesting he had trouble making friends have already been dismissed. "Victoria is absolutely delighted at the news and couldn't contain herself when it was all coming to plan – to have Brooklyn back under the same roof is a dream come true for her," says another insider, adding that the designer "couldn't believe how much she missed him and hated to be separated from him." The family is expected to travel to Miami together this week while David Beckham works on his Miami MLS soccer project.
Michelle and Sasha Obama join Tina Knowles Lawson at Beyonce and JAY-Z's concert in France
It's been nearly a decade since Beyonce performed "At Last" for Barack Obama and Michelle Obama's first dance after his 2009 inauguration — and the Obama family's connection to Bey's family seem stronger than ever. Over the weekend, Michelle and Sasha Obama were spotted at Bey and JAY-Z's On the Run II tour stop at the Stade de France stadium in Saint-Denise, France. At one point, the former First Lady — who once famously said she'd be Beyonce if she could be anyone in the world — made her way past the front row barricades to stand stage-side and dance around with Bey's mom, Tina Knowles Lawson. A fansite posted a video from the evening (via TMZ) shouting out Nick Jonas, Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas and his fiance, Sophie Turner, all of whom were also reportedly at the show.

Cardi and Offset welcomed Kulture Kari Cephus in Atlanta on July 10.
Lupita Nyong'o, Saoirse Ronan star in Calvin Klein's new fragrance campaign
Women who inspire women — that's the concept at the heart of a new campaign for Calvin Klein's first fragrance since Raf Simons took over as Chief Creative Officer. Also at the center of the campaign are actresses Lupita Nyong'o and Saoirse Ronan, each of whom selected inspiring women from the past to appear next to them in the ads. A sneak peak of the camapign on Us Weekly shows Lupita's glowing face smiling alongside up-close portraits of singer Eartha Kitt and actress Katharine Hepburn, while Saoirse's image appears alongside pics of actress Sissy Spacek and singer and civil rights activist Nina Simone. "CALVIN KLEIN WOMEN is inspired by the transmission of strength and inspiration from one woman to the next; by plurality combined with individuality; freedom of expression; and the notion that the collective is as vital as the individual," the designer says in a press release announcing the new scent, due out in August. The fragrance itself is described by Us a "woody floral" mix of "contrasts." The beauty campaign is Saoirse's first. Lupita has represented Lancôme since 2014.

Scarlett Johansson gets props from LGBQT community for declining transgender role
Members of the trans film and television community are praising Scarlett Johansson for her decision to bail on playing a transgender man in "Rub & Tug," a film about the true story of massage parlor scion and crime boss Dante Tex Gill. Speaking to Out.com last week, Scarlett explained she would "respectfully withdraw" herself from the project due to concerns raised about the paucity of opportunities for trans actors in Hollywood. "Our cultural understanding of transgender people continues to advance, and I've learned a lot from the community since making my first statement about my casting and realize it was insensitive," she said. "Scarlett deciding to pull out was a good example of listening to the community and that was the right thing to do," Emmy-nominated producer and director Rhys Ernst told THR upon hearing the news. Actress Rain Valdez ("Transparent") said the move "says a lot about Scarlett Johansson," adding, "That actually makes me a little emotional because it's not an easy industry for trans women. It's not an easy industry for trans men." Scarlett initially defended herself amid a strong backlash over the casting, telling Bustle through her rep that critics should look to award-winning cisgender stars who have played transgender roles before placing blame on her. "Tell them that they can be directed to Jeffrey Tambor, Jared Leto, and Felicity Huffman's reps for comment," she said. The statement was widely regarded as being somewhat flip and dismissive.

Jaden Smith hosted a belated birthday bash for himself on Saturday, July 14, at Miami hotspot LIV at Fountainebleau.

Shortly after their arrival, Jaden's dad, Will Smith's track "Miami" came on, inspiring Jaden and his entourage to get up and dance while singing along to the music.
