Kanye West has reportedly moved his massive sneaker collection out of the Kardashian-West home in Calabasas
While Kim Kardashian West was enjoying the sun and surf in Turks and Caicos on a family girls trip in recent days, her husband, Kanye West reportedly began moving personal items out of their home in Calabasas, Calif. The move comes amid ongoing talk of an impending divorce for the two, who tied the knot in 2014 and share four children. "They both felt it would be less dramatic without both of them in the house," a source told Page Six on Wednesday, Feb. 3. The insider said Kanye didn't take all his belongings, but did take his massive sneaker collection with him from the home, prompting some new questions about photos Kim shared on Instagram over the weekend that showed her wearing a bikini and a pair of Yeezy Crocs. On Monday, an Instagram Story post from Kim in which she showed off a new SKIMS showroom in her house also generated buzz among fans who thought the space looked like Kanye's closet, which was featured in his appearance on David Letterman's "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction."

HFPA announces 2021 Golden Globe nominees to mixed reactions
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced its nominees for this year's Golden Globes Awards on Wednesday, Feb. 3, revealing who's up for what when Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reunite from New York City and Los Angeles, respectively, to co-host the awards ceremony for the fourth time on Feb. 28. Leading the charge in nominations this year, Netflix snagged 42 nominations in total. Anya Taylor-Joy is up for both a film award ("Emma") and a TV win ("The Queen's Gambit"), while Sacha Baron-Cohen picked up acting nods for "The Trial of the Chicago 7″ and "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm," as well as a producer shout-out for "Borat." ("… In the event that we don't win," he joked on Twitter, "I promise to hire Rudy Giuliani to contest the results.") Meanwhile, this year's rather homogenous, at times, confusing list generated some backlash among critics. Time.com published its 11 picks for "the weirdest Golden Globes nominations," while outlets like the New York Times and Yahoo wondered how it was that the acclaimed "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom" and Spike Lee's "Da 5 Bloods" either got no love in key categories ("Rainey") or no love at all ("Bloods"). Questions also swirled around Sia's forthcoming film, "Music," which has angered autism communities. You can check out the full list of nominees here.
Lizzo's inspiring self-care routine features daily love affirmations for her belly
In addition to the musical talent that netted her eight Grammy nominations and three wins last year, Lizzo is becoming a master in the art of self-love. But as the singer frequently reminds social media followers, loving yourself takes work — and she puts that work in every day. The latest example popped up on Lizzo's Instagram this week in the form of a ritual she shared in which she talks to the part of her body she once "hated so much" she wanted to get rid of it. "I started talking to my belly this year. Blowing her kisses and showering her with praises," Lizzo wrote alongside a video of herself in Savage x Fenty undies, standing before her bathroom mirror, on Tuesday, Feb. 2. She went on to confess how she wanted to just delete that part of her body. "But it's literally ME," she wrote. "I am learning to radically love every part of myself. Even if it means talking to myself every morning." In the clip, she takes a few eep breaths, smiles lovingly at herself and rubs her belly. "I love you so much. Thank you so much for keeping me happy, for keeping me alive," she says. "I'm going to continue to listen to you. You deserve all the space in the world to breathe, expand and contract, and give me life." In closing, the singer addressed her followers directly in the caption, writing, "This is your sign to love on yourself today!"

Sean Penn reprimands CORE employees who complained about long hours at vaccination site: Report
In the comments beneath a New York Times article about Sean Penn's vaccination work via his CORE nonprofit, two people claiming to be employees of the organization complained about the work conditions at Dodger Stadium, where CORE has been helping the city of Los Angeles conduct a mass vaccination event. The employees reportedly cited nearly 24 hour-long shifts and little to no break time, calling the conditions potentially illegal and definitely exhausting. On Wednesday, Feb. 3, the Los Angeles Times published excerpts from what the outlet says is a leaked, 2,200 word letter from Sean to CORE employees in response. Per TMZ, the actor slammed the comments as "shameful entries," though he reportedly acknowledged shifts were longer than usual right now. "And to whoever authored these," he wrote, referencing the comments, "… understand that in every cell of my body is a vitriol for the way your actions reflect so harmfully upon your brothers and sisters in arms." He reportedly continued: "I have taken counsel and here will refrain from using the words with which I would otherwise choose to describe the character of your actions."
Why Dolly Parton is waiting to get COVID-19 vaccine she helped fund
Last year, Dolly Parton donated $1 million towards research that led the development of Moderna's coronavirus vaccine. Now, she's 75, and eligible in her home state of Tennessee to get the vaccination she helped make possible. So has she gotten the shots? "No," she told the Associated Press in a new interview published this week. "I'm not going to get mine until some more people get theirs. I don't want it to look like I'm jumping the line just because I donated money." Which is not to say she's skipping her shot. "I was going to do it on my birthday, and I thought, Nah, don't do that. You'll look like you're just doing a show,'" she explained. "None of my work is really like that. I wasn't doing it for a show. I'm going to get mine. I want it," Dolly continued. "When I get it, I'll probably do it on camera so people will know and I'll tell them the truth, if I have symptoms and all that. Hopefully it'll encourage people. I'm not going to jump the line just because I could."
Yep — Aaron Rodgers is dating Shailene Woodley
Turns out the rumors were true! Last summer, the Instagram account Deux Moi posted multiple tidbits indicating Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had moved on from Danica Patrick with actress Shailene Woodley. Now, both E! News and People have confirmed the two are indeed an item. "They have kept things private and low key," a source tells E!. The low key aspect of their romance has likely gotten an assist by the fact that the two continue to live in different cities, with Aaron "very focused on his season" in Green Bay, Wisconsin and Shailene spending time recently on the set of "Misanthrope" in Montreal. "They continue to talk and see each other when they can. They are both focused on their careers but they also make time for each other," says E!'s insider. A People source echoed those sentiments, telling the outlet the relationship remains "casual." But Aaron sounded pretty happy with the state of his love life in September, when he said on the "Pat McAfee Show" that a "lot of things that have come together in my life over the last few months that have really been enjoyable." He added at the time: "That's why I'm having so much fun and it starts with love. And then surrounding yourself with people that you really enjoy."
Ramona Singer reportedly visited Mar-a-Lago, St. Barts during 'RHONY' COVID-19 shutdown
Ramona Singer appears to be making quite the travel season out of her show's current COVID-19-forced hiatus. Following a report last week claiming the "Real Housewives of New York City" star flew to St. Barts when the show was put on hold because a cast member tested positive for COVID-19, Page Six is now reporting Ramona also squeezed in a hangout session at Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort over the weekend. Meanwhile, her show is stuck in its second virus-related delay since the pandemic began. In October, production hit a snag when a crew member tested positive. According to Deadline, the whole franchise has a pretty rough track record for avoiding the virus. Prior to the unnamed "RHONY" star's diagnosis, at least eight cast members from various cities have reportedly tested positive. Those numbers probably explain why Bravo reportedly "begged" the "RHONY" cast to stay home during the filming hiatus. "Producers asked them to stay in New York state, and they all bolted," a source told Page Six. Another insider said Luann de Lesseps "and a few supporting cast members" have also traveled to Florida since production on the show was halted. On Sunday, France announced the borders of all Caribbean territories, including St. Barts, would be temporarily closed to visitors due to spiking coronavirus numbers.
Anderson Cooper, Dr. Oz and more celebs join growing list of 'Jeopardy!' guest hosts
In a move that's already generating some skepticism from critics, "Jeopardy!" has added a whole roster of new, seemingly unconnected guest hosts to its lineup. As of Wednesday, Feb. 3, those include Anderson Cooper, who previously appeared as a guest on the show prior to Alex Trebek's death, along with Savannah Guthrie, Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Sanjay Gupta. The latest group joins a cadre of celebs including Aaron Rodgers, Bill Whitaker, Mayim Bialik and Katie Couric, whose recent comments about Donald Trump to Bill Maher reportedly has producers concerned, given the "Jeopardy!" audience's tendency to skew older and more conservative. Each celebrity host is also set to pick a charity that will receive a donation equal to the money won by contestants during the star's tenure on the show. No dates or charities have been announced yet.
Britney Spears' social media manager addresses 'conspiracy theories' about singer's posts
Given Britney Spears' ongoing conservatorship court battle and the sometimes cryptic nature of her social media posts, the singer's fans have long expressed concern that she may not be in control of her Instagram. According to her social media manager, however, Britney is very much in charge of her own feed and what goes on it. On Tuesday, Feb. 2, Crowd Surf cofounder Cassie Petrey shared a long Instagram post in which she addressed what she described as "inaccurate theories out there" about how Britney's "social media operates." After opening with praise for the singer's fanbase — and a comment about overlooking "the nasty comments that have been thrown my way over the years" — Cassie claimed, "Britney creates her own posts and writes her own captions for Instagram." She said Britney makes requests about edits for her videos, and while the social media team makes the changes, Britney determines whether the final product gets posted. "She has stated many times that she creates the posts, but people continue to believe conspiracy theories over what Britney says," Cassie wrote. "Britney is not 'asking for help' or leaving secret messages in her social media. She is literally just living her life and trying to have fun on Instagram."
AJ McLean thinks Scientologists tried to 'brainwash' him when he visited the organization's Celebrity Centre
AJ McLean believes members of the Church of Scientology attempted to "brainwash" him when he visited the organization's Celebrity Centre in the early 2000s. He discussed his experience on his "Pretty Messed Up" podcast this week with guest Leah Remini, who's been working for years to expose the church for its allegedly abusive treatment of those involved. Per TooFab, AJ recalled that in 2002 or 2003 he lived, "right down the street" from the center. He hadn't explored it but when someone at a Grammy part encouraged him to visit, he decided to check it out. "I didn't know what it was, I didn't know anything about it. But I wanted to not go alone, so I took a friend with me," he shared. "We got a tour of the facility and they brought us to this media room and they sat us down and they said, 'Would you mind watching this short film?'" They watched the film, which he recalled was "about 15 minutes long." At the end, he said the pair tried to leave but found the door was locked. "They wouldn't let us out and they replayed the same film again," the singer said. "We didn't get out of that room for about 15 minutes [or longer]. They played it three times until someone heard me knocking." The experience left him unsettled. "It seems like a brainwashing type technique; this doesn't seem normal to me," he said. Asked if he felt the "brainwashing technique was effective," AJ replied, "I got close, but I never would have. I'm a very spiritual person. That's how I've been raised, that's how I've been living my life, more about spirituality than organized religion."
