Kylie Jenner reveals Stormi was born earlier than planned
With her daughter, Stormi Webster's 2nd birthday just around the corner on Saturday, Feb. 1, Kylie Jenner's feeling a bit nostalgic. In a since-deleted video on her Instagram Story this week, the 22-year-old makeup guru revealed to fans for the first time that she had to be induced to go into labor. After asking fans if they wanted a whole YouTube video about her "labor, delivery and pregnancy," she shared that she "actually got induced," according to the Daily Mail. "I thought I was gonna have her on the second … and she came early," Kylie continued. "They broke my water and I had her 45 minutes later. It was crazy and, yeah, I would love to share with you guys."

Brad Pitt wore a name tag to an Oscars event and the Internet fell in love with him all over again
Earlier this month, Brad Pitt told a reporter he was "blissfully naive" about the hugely positive social media response to Brad's SAG Awards reunion with Jennifer Aniston. Welp, Brad's adorable — if stupifying — naivete seemed to be back in action this week when he stopped by the annual Oscar Nominees Luncheon in Los Angeles. Because upon his arrival, Brad dutifully put a name tag on his lapel. Ya know, so folks wouldn't have to wonder who he was. Photos of the 56-year-old talking to Cynthia Ervio while proudly wearing his "Brad Pitt" info tag sparked a fresh round of online love for the star, with Twitter users declaring the move "hilarious" and "humble," and outlets like The Cut asking readers for their help in "identifying this man." As People points out, name tags are available for all the nominees at the event, but plenty of guests don't bother putting them on. Brad's up for Best Supporting Actor for his role in "Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood." The performance has already won him a SAG Award, a Golden Globe Award and a Critics' Choice Award.

How Ariana Grande honored her late ex, Mac Miller, after the Grammys
Ariana Grande and the late Mac Miller's fans have already determined (for themselves, anyway) that Ariana's song "Imagine" is about Mac, whom she dated for nearly two years, and that she has an uncredited secret appearance on his posthumous album "Circles." And after seeing the videos Ariana posted when she got home from the Grammy Awards over the weekend, those theories seem even more plausible. According to E! News, the singer, who kicked off her Grammys mini-set with "Imagine," shared a few videos on her Instagram Story after the awards show in which she seemed to have Mac on the brain — mainly because she was wearing her Pittsburgh Steelers shirt. The Steelers were Mac's favorite team, as he was born in Pittsburgh. And she made a point of joking about the "afterparty" she was at in one of the clips, which showed her at home with her dog. Mac died in September 2018 of mixed drug toxicity. He was 26.
Jessica Simpson recalls 'spiraling with alcohol' on 'Today'
Following Jessica Simpson's surprising revelation that she struggled with alcohol and pill addictions until hitting rock bottom in 2017, she sat down with Hoda Kotb for a candid discussion about the matters she tackles in her memoir, "Open Book." "I had started a spiral and I couldn't catch up with myself," she said in a preview clip from the "Today" segment (via TooFab) released on Tuesday, Jan. 28. "I was spiraling, chasing my tail and that was with alcohol," she added. Jessica also revealed she knew things were out of control and didn't keep it to herself. "Every day I would say it and I would say it openly to everyone. 'I know. I know, I'll stop soon. I'll cut back,'" she said. "For me to cut back, like I'm an all or nothing girl, and so I didn't know it was a problem until it was." Ultimately, Jess writes in her memoir that it was Halloween 2017, a day when she began drinking at 7:30 a.m., when she knew it was really time to stop. She didn't know how her kids had gotten their costumes on at that point. "I completely didn't recognize myself. I always had a glitter cup. It was always filled to the rim with alcohol," she recalled. "I just realized that I had to surrender. It was time. I had to give it up and I was ready. I'm not going to miss another day, I'm not gonna miss another Halloween, I'm not gonna miss another Christmas, I'm going to be present." The full "Today" interview airs Wednesday. "Open Book" hits shelves Feb. 4.
Lizzo's strip club Grammy afterparty sparks controversy for Dua Lipa
After winning three Grammy Awards and opening the show, Lizzo headed to Crazy Girls strip club to unwind with friends at her afterparty. According to Page Six, the singer was joined by guests including Lil Nas X, Rosalía and Dua Lipa, as well as some male strippers who were on hand to help celebrate Lizzo's manager's birthday. "Lizzo made it rain for sure. All of the celebs were making it rain and dancing all night with her," a partygoer told the tab. Unfortunately, not everyone was on board with the group's chosen party spot. After video surfaced online showing Dua tossing money at one of the strippers, a handful of trolls went after her, Lizzo and Rosalia on Twitter for "sexualizing women" despite espousing feminist ideals. Dua apparently got the worst of the backlash. According to Newsweek, the hashtag #DuaLipaIsOverparty began trending because of the video. Despite the negative comments, Dua's fans largely seemed to support her and suggested the nasty comments were the work of "whack kpop stans" who have developed a reputation for using "over party" hashtags to make room for bigger k-pop fan bases.
Miley Cyrus shares her theory on why she wasn't 'invited' to the Grammys
If you thought it was odd Miley Cyrus didn't make it to this year's Grammy Awards, where her dad Billy Ray Cyrus performed and shared two wins with Lil Nas X for his "Old Town Road" remix, Miley's pretty sure she has your answer. On Monday, Jan. 27, after the awards show, the singer first shared a heartfelt "congrats" to her dad "and baby brother." She then posted a video of herself accepting a Best Video MTV EMA in 2013 for "Wrecking Ball" — while digging a joint out of her purse and blazing up. Her caption? "& we wonder why I'm not invited to award shows anymore." Noted.
Justin Bieber announces release date, tour plans for 'Changes'
Justin Bieber is officially back to work. The singer had an eventful couple of years, during which he married Hailey Bieber and took a good amount of time to focus on his health, both mental and physical. This week, he announced he'll release his fifth studio album, "Changes," on Valentine's Day — a fitting choice, given that the first single off the album, "Yummy," is about Justin's wife, Hailey Bieber. Or, more specifically, about his sex life, as Ellen DeGeneres dragged out of him when he stopped by her show on Monday, Jan. 27. ("There's something about toes curling and stuff," Ellen teased.) The singer has also announced he'll hit the road in support of "Changes" beginning May 14 in Seattle and running through late September, when it's set to wrap up in New Jersey. According to Variety, one dollar from each ticket is slated to go to the Bieber Foundation, which Justin launched to help support mental health wellness advocacy and programs.
Hailey Bieber gave her parents a chance to talk her out of marrying Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber's upcoming album and tour aren't the only new projects he's promoting as 2020 gets underway. The singer stars alongside Hailey Bieber in "Seasons," a new, 10-part docu-series on YouTube that gives fans an inside look at Justin and Hailey's relationship, which got serious when they reunited after an initial breakup. "It all happened really fast and kind of all at once, but [he] and I have known each other for so long that there was a part of it that didn't feel scary," Hailey explained in the fourth episode of "Seasons" (via Cosmopolitan). "It's just such a big life decision that it was just, it was so much emotion all at one time." Hailey later revealed that after Justin proposed, she gave her famous dad Stephen Baldwin and mom Kennya Baldwin a chance to talk her out of it. "I remember calling my parents when we decided to get married and I said, 'This is the time I need you to stop me from doing something crazy if you think this is a bad idea,'" she admitted. "Cause in my heart I knew that it's what I wanted to do but I was like, just tell me right now if you think, well, woah, just relax and take a breath and think about this and see how you feel in like 24 hours or a week or something. And they were like, 'Honestly, we think that this is meant to be for you and we know that this is what you want, so we trust you.' And I was like, alright." Fun fact: It was Stephen who reportedly introduced Hailey to Justin back when they were both young teens. "I think there's always a little aspect of excitement that should be there and nerves that should be there when you're romantically involved with somebody, especially if it's your person and it's the right person for you," Hailey added. "He still makes me a little nervous sometimes. Like I blush and I get a little bit cheesy. Can't help it."
The Oscars will serve a mostly plant-based menu
Joaquin Phoenix's efforts to get the Golden Globe Awards to serve an entirely plant-based meal were successful last month. Now, the Oscars are planning to follow suit — for the most part. Variety reports the Governors Ball menu is slated to be 70 percent plant-based. Options that are not plant-based will feature "sustainably farmed" meat and fish. The Globes reportedly served mushroom "scallops" and a "vegan opera dome," according to the Daily Beast.

Winona Ryder was recently spotted in Winona, Minn. Turns out, she was shooting a 3-minute short film for Squarespace as part of the website building platform's Super Bowl ad campaign.
