Behold Jessie J's perfect acknowledgment of her cellulite …
A week after bundling up for a shopping trip in London with her beau, Channing Tatum, Jessie J was feeling beach and booty vibes as she shared a photo of herself in a black bikini looking out at the ocean. The pic showed off quite a bit of her derriere — and, according to some followers, cellulite. Not that she seemed to care. "Took ages to hairspray my hair like that. My shadow is my mood," she joked of her windblown hair in the pic. "Oh, and for those telling me I have cellulite," she added, "I know. I own a mirror." The post got plenty of thumbs-ups from her fans, who seemed to appreciate how real she was being. "I absolutely love that you didn't photoshop the natural cellulite under the booty," wrote one user (via People). Another chimed in that she was, "Owning that cellulite like beautiful boss!!" Channing, meanwhile, sounded a little more hesitant to embrace a potential flaw after he shared a glimpse at his new, super-short, super blond hairdo earlier this week. Having monitored some of the negative feedback on his new look in an Instagram poll, he shared a shrugging selfie and wrote, "Well, bad ideas are sort of my thing. So …"

John Stamos rips his pants onstage, blames Joe Jonas
Whoops. John Stamos suffered a wardrobe malfunction of sorts while performing in Dallas with the Beach Boys this week. Sharing photos of his pants with a large tear down the seam, the "Full House" alum tweeted that the accident marked the "first time Tom Ford has ever let me down," before finding a way to score a few points in his ongoing prank war with Joe Jonas in the post. "Ripped pants five minutes in to @TheBeachBoys show in Dallas," John continued. "I think that Jonas kid is behind this! (or my butt is getting bigger –) #Rippers #Beachbums." Not as creative as his Joe Jonas pillow or tattoo, perhaps, but well played just the same!
Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott step out for a bite with with Stormi amid cheating rumors
If TMZ's claim Kylie Jenner accused Travis Scott of cheating was on target, it looks like the couple is trying to move forward. The pair were spotted on Thursday, March 22, heading inside Nas' gourmet chicken and waffles joint, Sweet Chick, according to TMZ. It's the first time the two have been seen together since Kylie's suspicions allegedly blew up into a fight and while they didn't say much to the paparazzo who caught them on camera, they both looked calm as Travis cradled their daughter, Stormi, in his arms. After their meal, the couple sent Stormi home before getting in a separate car, seemingly to hit another spot together. The cheating accusation reportedly came after Kylie found something on his phone that suggested he'd been with someone else. Reps for the "Astroworld" rapper have denied rumors he strayed.
Diane Kruger opens up about going to a 'dark place' after splitting from Joshua Jackson
When Diane Kruger won Best Actress at Cannes in 2017 for her performance in "In the Fade," it wasn't necessarily a moment of celebration for the actress. "I was in such a dark place," she admitted in a recent interview with iNews (via the Daily Mail). "I had two really close family deaths that year, I was separating from my partner of 10 years [Joshua Jackson]. There was just a lot of darkness and personal loss. Then the role was very dark," she explained. "There is something about grief and loss that lets you see how uncompassionate we are as a society, including myself. You watch TV and you become so numb to somebody else's misery." As she promotes her new spy movie, "The Operative," Diane, 42, can't help but feel a bit more positive about the movie, thanks to the fact that she was in a happier place when she shot it. Diane was pregnant at the time, preparing to welcome her first child with Norman Reedus, whom she'd met on the set of 2015's "Sky." I"t was definitely a special experience being pregnant when filming," she said. "It will always be a special movie because of that; she is in every scene." As for motherhood, her most meaningful role yet, she jokes: "Let's not f— that one up!"
Lori Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade 'blames her parents' for ruining her career
Things are understandably tense in Lori Loughlin's house after the actress and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were indicted for paying $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters into USC as crew recruits despite their lack of rowing experience. Olivia Jade, in particular — whose role as a social media influencer had earned her multiple endorsement deals by the age of 19 — reportedly "blames her mom and dad for this scandal and for the downfall of her career," a source tells Us Weekly. The insider adds that Olivia "was initially trying to shrug off the scandal as something that would pass after a week and she could go back to her life." Instead, it's continued to dominate headlines, search terms and memes, none of which has been good for the reputations of Olivia or her sister, Bella, both of whom could end up banned from the USC campus. Now that her endorsement deals have fallen through she is very upset with her parents," the source continues. As a recently resurfaced Youtube video suggests, Olivia initially only wanted to attend school for "the experience of …game days and partying," rather than the education. "Olivia didn't even show interest in going to college," says the source. "She wanted to take time and work on her beauty career, but her parents were the ones who wanted her to get an education." Lori, along with Felicity Huffman and other defendants in the college admissions scandal, are expected in federal court in Boston on April 3.
Selena Gomez celebrates her BFF's birthday with pink balloons and a sunshine cake
Last month, a source close to Selena Gomez confirmed she's been focused on reading, exercising and spending time with family and friends in the wake of her treatment for anxiety and depression. On Thursday, March 21, the singer made good on the "friends" aspect of that prescription by helping to throw a birthday bash for Raquelle Stevens, one of her closest pals. Clad in a comfy looking sweatshirt, jeans and white boots, Selena joined five of her besties at a house party for Raquelle, who posted pics and videos from the girl-centric get-together on Instagram. "Best friends in the world 💞 thank you for throwing me such a beautiful party!" Raquelle captioned one pic that showed the party venue decked out in pink and metallic balloons. Other posts showed off the yellow, sunshine-shaped birthday cake the girls got Raquelle for her big day. Guests at the bash also included Simi Khadra, Haze Khadra, Ashley Cook, Zahra Ayub and Caroline Franklin, according to E! News. "I love you ladies," Selena posted on Instagram after she got matching tattoos with Raquelle, Ashley and their friend, Courtney Lopez. "You all inspire me to be better, stronger, closer to god and we have lived the most INSANE story together already. Can't wait for 50 more!!"
Priyanka Chopra sounds off on Meghan Markle rift rumors
Ever since Duchess Meghan skipped the festivities around her longtime pal Priyanka Chopra's wedding to Nick Jonas, rumors have circulated suggesting the actresses are on the outs. Now, thanks to a fan who called in to "Watch What Happens Live," we finally have a final word on the matter, direct from Priyanka's lips. "Are the rumors true that you were upset that Meghan Markle skipped your wedding to Nick Jonas?" asked a caller on the Thursday, March 21 edition of the show. Andy Cohen reminded Priyanka, "They said you didn't go to her baby shower because you were pissed at her." Priyanka's response? "Oh my God, no, it's not true." As a source previously told E! News, "Just because Priyanka didn't go to the shower, or that Meghan couldn't come to her wedding(s), doesn't mean anything about their friendship. They're still very close friends and Meghan considers Priyanka one of her closest confidants."
Will Gayle King sign a multi-million dollar deal to stay at 'CBS This Morning'?
What's next for Gayle King? That question is apparently on the minds of more than a few people this month at CBS News, where King's $5.5 million-a-year "CBS This Morning" contract has reportedly come to an end. Multiple outlets have reported the veteran journalist is pushing for a higher salary — she earns significantly less than her ABC and NBC counterparts — with the Daily Mail claiming King could be asking for up to $12 million a year. According to the New York Post, she's likely to get it — and likely to stay. King's bargaining chip revolves around the low ratings that have plagued the show since its co-founder, Charlie Rose, was forced out amid sexual misconduct allegations. According to the Mail, viewers have not returned in the wake of his departure. The New York Post's sources, meanwhile, have said for months King is considering a move to another network or another slot in spite of her vocal support of Susan Zirinsky who took over the news department this spring. Complicating matters is the fact that a massive salary jump for King would also affect "CBS Evening News," which is rumored to be potentially in flux as King's morning show co-host Norah O'Donnell allegedly vies to replace Jeff Glor on the evening show. Should O'Donnell take over, she's expected to ask that the evening news move its headquarters to Washington, D.C. "Everything has gone very quiet. Nothing will be done until Gayle has signed her contract. It looks likely that she's staying — but we don't know what the holdup is," one insider tells the Post. "Everyone is stressed — they want to know what's happening," said an insider. Asked earlier this month if she planned to stay, King told The Associated Press, "Ooh, that's a good question. All I can say is I really love my job. And I think it's kind of foolish to predict the future."
Jada Pinkett Smith goes blonde
Back in … blonde? Jada Pinkett Smith took a ride in the wayback machine this week, sharing her newly blondified 'do on Instagram. As she reminded followers, it's not the first time she's lightened her locks.

Turns out Morgan Freeman has been maintaining a bee sanctuary for years on his ranch
Morgan Freeman is helping to save the earth, one bee at a time. Multiple outlets reported this week that the 81-year-old Oscar winner has been quietly working to reestablish and support the world's most important pollinator by converting his 124-acre ranch in Mississippi to a bee sanctuary. According to Forbes, Morgan brought 26 hives to the property from Arkansas and is growing magnolia trees and lavender as a means of keeping them happy and sated. "There's a concerted effort to bring bees back onto the planet," he told Jimmy Fallon back in 2014 shortly after beginning his beekeeping journey. "We do not realize that they are the foundation, I think, of the growth of the planet, the vegetation." He went on to say he has a gardener who doubles as a caregiver for the bees, determining what they "would like to have" access to. "… We've got acres and acres of clover, we're planting stuff like lavender, I've got like, maybe 140 magnolia trees, big blossoms," he said at the time. The actor also noted he skips the beekeeping gear when he's dealing with them. "They haven't [stung me] yet, because right now I'm not trying to harvest honey or anything, I'm just feeding them … ," he said. "I think they understand, 'Hey, don't bother this guy, he's got sugar water here!"
