Nick Jonas adds a John Stamos blanket to their ongoing 'feud'
The most meta celebrity feud of all time continues! Nick Jonas and John Stamos have been teasing each other with images of one another emblazoned on their clothing and various other textiles since October, when John opted for a Jonas Brothers T-shirt as his American Music Awards outfit centerpiece. As Teen Vogue reminds us, Nick responded to John's AMA prank by making a hoodie emblazoned with an image of John wearing said Jonas Brothers shirt at the AMAs. John, in turn, took a photo of Nick wearing the hoodie … that showed John wearing the JoBros tee … and put it all on a pillow. He then shared a photo of himself cuddling up to the pillow alongside the caption, "I had the craziest dream last night… #jonasbrothers #sucker." Cue Nick's next move, which he posted on Instagram on Monday, March 11. It was a photo of himself in bed beneath a blanket. And yes, the blanket is printed with the IG pic of John cuddling up to the pillow printed with a pic of Nick wearing a hoodie featuring John wearing the Jonas Brothers shirt at the AMAs. Quipped Nick: "I'll sleep well tonight knowing #sucker is number 1!" Something tells us this is far from over …

Gwyneth Paltrow reflects on her 'conscious uncoupling' from Chris Martin
Back in 2014, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin's "conscious uncoupling" announcement earned them eye rolls a-plenty. Five years later, though, it seems like they were onto something. After all, the two still share family dinners and vacations with their kids, Apple and Moses Martin. Chris even joined his ex on her so-called "modern" family-style honeymoon trip with Brad Falchuk, Brad's kids and Apple and Moses. "Both Chris and I have made a commitment to continue to love the things about each other that we've always loved and to really continue to develop our friendship and to find ways to continue to communicate," Gwyneth told Savannah Guthrie on the Tuesday, March 12 edition of "Today," according to JustJared. "There's been a long process to it. At some point maybe I'll write a book because you really have to focus on forgiveness and [the] spite that comes up, you have to let it go. It's definitely not effortless, but now at this point, five years later, it's pretty good. But the first couple of years it was very effortful and for the sake of the children. We were really committed to maintaining the family structure … even though it looked a bit different." As for her new marriage, Gwyneth admitted the life change was somewhat unexpected. "I guess if you'd asked me a couple of years ago I probably would have leaned towards not getting married again, but then sometimes life just surprises you and it's been really fun," she said. "I'm so happy that I was sort of given this other opportunity."

Katherine McPhee talks going to school with Duchess Kate, falling in love with David Foster
Katharine McPhee stopped by "Good Morning Britain" this week to talk about her West End show, "Waitess," but as has often been the case since she began working in London, the conversation soon turned to the Duchess of Sussex, who Katharine knows from her childhood. "I went to school with Meghan Markle. I was in middle school when she was in high school," she confirmed when asked about a throwback pic she recently posted of the two, according to the Daily Mail. "My sister was in her class, she was always lovely and always talented," Katharine continued. "I just saw her last week, I do have a picture, I did get to reunite with her which was so sweet! I did a couple of shows with her but I was younger and wasn't allowed to be in the more major roles with shows, I did musicals with her. When she was getting married I was going to post a picture with her, but [I did it] when I had something to promote [the musical], and it became a much bigger thing." She added that she invited Meghan to see "Waitress" and is still hoping the Duchess will be able to make it to a performance. Katharine, 34, also chatted about her 69-year-old music producer fiance, David Foster, who was at the TV studio to support her during her appearance. "I know I'm the woman to tame the beast, we both have some similar qualities, we've both tamed each other," Katharine mused. She touched on the couple's "huge age difference," admitting that "in America they like to write about us and talk about us," before explaining how their relationship evolved. "We met when I was a contestant on 'American Idol.' We always had such adoration for each other, he's had a thing for me for a long time," she said. The couple's connection isn't limited to their romance, either. Katharine said she often looks to David when she's struggling with music. "When I'm in the shower sometimes I'll think, 'Oh that doesn't sound so good,'" she said, sharing an example. "It's more when he comes to show that I get nervous. If I have little intonation in the voice he'll hear it."

Dolly Parton's team denied Elizabeth Warren the use of '9 to 5' at campaign events
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Dem., Mass.), is getting a big old red light from Dolly Parton's team after the presidential hopeful used the song "9 to 5" at a town hall meeting in New York City last week. According to the Associated Press (via TooFab), the senator requested and was denied permission to use the song but went ahead and used it anyway. "We did not approve the request, and we do not approve requests like this of (a) political nature," said Dolly's manager, Danny Nozell. As the country singer explained on "Nightline" last year, she intends to keep her music far away from the political radar. "Of course I have my opinion about everybody and everything, but I learned a long time ago to keep your damn mouth shut if you want to stay in show business," she said at the time. "I'm not in politics. I'm an entertainer."
Olivia Newton-John releases first memoir, says she's 'doing well' after her latest cancer diagnosis
Olivia Newton-John's new memoir, "Don't Stop Believin'" hit bookstores nationwide on Tuesday, March 11. As she recently told THR, the book was ultimately intended to be "a positive story" that would shed light on aspects of the "Grease" star's life that her fans may not have known about. "The things I was hesitant about, I left out. Things I knew people knew about and wanted answers [to], I addressed them just as much as I wanted to. That's the beauty of writing your own book. I knew I didn't want to write a gossip book or a kiss-and-tell book," she says. Now 70, the actress and singer is dealing with her third cancer diagnosis since 1992. "I'm doing well!" she tells THR when asked how she's doing with the disease these days. She opens up in the book about her journey with the illness, including her use of natural remedies and her prioritization of caring for her own mental health throughout all of it. "I'm fearful sometimes and I'm sad and I go through moments like that," she admits. "I'm human and you have to allow yourself to go through it. You can't go around it. The only way to get to the other side is you have to go through the feelings." Asked how cancer changed her perspective on things, Olivia says she's "still not strong enough to do a lot of things," and that affected her understanding of what she's been lucky enough to have. "We take so much for granted in our life and I know that there are a lot of people that live with these issues and have their whole life, but I've never experienced not being able to walk unassisted or pick things up when I wanted to or hit a tennis ball or get a horse and ride," she says. "I couldn't do these things so it could be awakening for gratitude and compassion for others even though I've always been a compassionate person, I believe."

Issa Rae says she gained 'new money weight' when her career first took off
For Issa Rae, not everything about the early success of her 2011 web series "Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl" was healthy. "When the web series started, I was very, very broke," the "Insecure" creator explains in the new issue of Women's Health. "Then more opportunities began to come. I was gaining New Money Weight. … When you get a good job you're like, 'I can afford to eat at restaurants all the time!' That adds up in weight." Though success meant a more demanding schedule, Issa, 34, realized she had to make exercise a priority. "Time to work out is limited, but when I first started seeing myself on TV, I was like, 'I gotta make time,'" she recalls. These days, she alternates walking in the hills near her home with jogging. She's also getting more comfortable tuning into herself on her hour-a-day exercise ventures, something she credits having lost an earbud once and having to turn off her music. "I was forced to be alone with my thoughts, and I was like, 'Oh, I need to do this more often,'" she says. "Those moments are the most creative. I think finding those moments while also nurturing your body is important."
