Nikki Bella joins ex, John Cena, for dinner at Cowboy Star
At least they're talking? In the wake of John Cena's multiple professions of love for his now-ex fiancee, Nikki Bella, the two got together for dinner near Nikki's home in San Diego this week. Other diners at the Cowboy Star Restaurant spotted the two and told TMZ the "conversation looked intense during the entire meal." In a photo snapped by TMZ, the two look tense as they share a banquette — while keeping their distance from one another. Having both acknowledged they still love each other since Nikki called off the wedding this past spring, they're now reportedly trying to see if their relationship can be saved.

Jada Pinkett Smith says she knew when Jaden Smith lost his virginity
Though it's led to some issues between them, Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith have long heralded their unorthodox approach to parenting. Their freedom-focused mom and dad style may have led to their son, Jaden Smith, moving out of the house at 15, but it also likely inspired the kind of relationship where the teenager felt comfortable telling his mom when he was no longer a virgin. Jada stopped by "Megyn Kelly Today," this week, where she told the host she noticed something was different about her son because he had a "certain swag" going on. "He was walking different, and there was just a loss of this … my little boy was gone," she said, according to Page Six. "And I looked at him and I was like, 'Where have you been? What's been going on?' And he said, 'You know, I was just with a friend.'" I said, 'Oh, OK, anything you want to tell me?' And right away [he told me] — Jaden can't lie."

Alicia Keys is launching an initiative for female advancement in music
Alicia Keys was honored with an Icon Songwriter award by the National Music Publishers Association in New York City this week. She used the opportunity to announce plans to spearhead a campaign to create greater equality for women in music. "I've joined forces with a group of really powerful female executives, songwriters, artists, engineers, producers and publishers to help reshape the industry that we all love by creating real opportunities and a pipeline of talent for other women," she said, according to Page Six. "We're calling our initiative She Is the Music. We want to create a model for change that effects women across all industries. We deserve the utmost respect, and so many of these women across industries are telling our culture that time is up on double standards, and it is it's over for pay inequity and colleagues who are at best disrespectful and at the worst unsafe — so it's over for that." Alicia went on to talk about how the past year has been "powerful" and "empowering" for women, before citing statistics from a recent study that showed how few songwriters, engineers and producers were nominated for Grammy Awards last year. " Our world is 50-50, and it's time for our industry to reflect that," she said. "Songwriters tell our stories, they sing who we are as people," she added, "… don't we all want to hear from all of us?
David Spade donates $100k to the National Alliance on Mental Illness
Just days after Kate Spade's death, her brother David Spade returned to the stage to perform a comedy set. Now, he's made another forward-looking move. People reports the comic donated $100,000 donation to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, which supports those suffering from mental health issues and is working to eradicate the stigma tied with such illnesses. "More people suffer from mental health issues than we may realize but no one should ever feel ashamed to reach out for support," David told the magazine, adding a plug for the availability of the national suicide prevention hotline (800-273-8255) and the NAMI website, which provides detailed information on how to get help. Kate took her own life on June 5. "Kate suffered from depression and anxiety for many years," David said in a statement following her death. "She was actively seeking help and working closely with her doctors to treat her disease, one that takes far too many lives. We were in touch with her the night before and she sounded happy. There was no indication and no warning that she would do this. It was a complete shock. And it clearly wasn't her. There were personal demons she was battling."
Demi Lovato is 'happy' in spite of body shamers
Demi Lovato is all about balance, thanks to her experience battling eating disorders and coming out the other side feeling healthy and strong. When it comes to food, she tells People she knows what happens when she diets, which is why she's opposed to it today. She wants her fans to consider a different, healthier approach to eating, too. "I had been on a really strict, regimented diet for so many years, and it felt like I didn't have a lot of freedom with food," Demi said in a new interview with the mag this week. "It would cause me to overindulge whenever I did get the opportunity, and I just felt like it was an unhealthy behavior. I just thought to myself, why am I doing this? I'd rather live in freedom from any eating disordered behaviors or thoughts, and so I decided to just let myself enjoy certain things without feeling guilt or shame." The singer added that she's been open about her "anti-dieting" stance and has found that for the most part, people are supportive. "It was important to me to share that with my followers because there are so many people in the world who feel pressured by society and the diet culture, and I feel like someone has to speak out and say that you don't have to force yourself to lose weight, or to look a certain way," she says. "The reaction has been great. There are some people who body shame me, and sometimes it's difficult, but I say to myself, am I happy? and that's the most important thing. And I want my fans to be happy too."
