Over the years, Pink's become increasingly open about the fact that relationships take work. Which explains why she was more than happy to celebrate her 15th wedding anniversary with Carey Hart on Thursday, Jan. 7, she was "proud," too. "15 years. Proud of us babe," the singer shared on Instagram alongside a handful of cute throwback pics of the couple. "See, sometimes being stubborn pays off," she quipped. "What a wild ride it's been, once we learned how to stay in our race line. Here's to at least the next 15 months hahahAh. I love you and I love our family. ❤️❤️." Pink and Carey have been married for 15 years but started dating four years before that. They share 9-year-old daughter, Willow, and 4-year-old son, Jameson. As Pink put it in a candid post in September: "Marriage is awful, wonderful, comfort and rage. It is boring, terrifying, and a total nail biter. It is loving another fallible creature while trying to love yourself. It is a lifetime of coming back to the table." Zeroing in on her own marriage, she went on to write: "People laugh at us because we're either fighting or laughing. They roll their eyes when we talk about therapy. But I'll tell you what. It's worth it. All of it. Even when it isn't."

Is Taylor Swift's new song about Karlie Kloss, Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta?
The deluxe version of Taylor Swift's "evermore" landed on Thursday, Jan. 7, complete with two new songs, "Right Where You Left Me" and "It's Time To Go." For Taylor's fans, new music means a new chance to unearth clues about the singer, and "It's Time To Go," in particular, caught their attention. The song's about knowing when it's time to move on from someone. Within hours of the track's release, Swifties had declared the song to be inspired by Taylor's former BFF, Karlie Kloss, plus Scooter Braun, aka Taylor's industry nemesis … and Karlie's manager. Fans think Scott Borchetta, who sold Taylor's masters to Scooter, knowing how badly she wanted them, gets a mention in the song, too. In the first verse, Taylor sings: "When the words of a sister, come back in whispers, that prove she was not, in fact, what she seemed. Not a twin from your dreams, she's a crook who was caught." On Twitter, fans quickly deemed Karlie the crook in question. ("Taylor calling Karlie a crook is still the funniest part of 'Evermore,'" wrote one.) Although Karlie's said she and Taylor remain friends despite never being seen together anymore, Karlie failed to defend her pal when Scooter bought Taylor's masters from Scott. All of which leads us to the other verse fans are buzzing about: "Fifteen years, fifteen million tears, begging til my knees bled," sings Taylor, who signed with Big Machine — you guessed it — 15 years ago. "I gave it my all, he gave me nothing at all, then wondered why I left. Now he sits on his throne, in his palace of bones, praying to his greed," she continues, seemingly referencing Scott. "He's got my past, frozen behind glass, but I've got me."

Demi Lovato teases new music in response to U.S. Capitol riot
Demi Lovato's not just tweeting about this week's violent riots at the U.S. Capitol, which unfolded shortly after Donald Trump urged his supporters to "show strength" at a MAGA rally in Washington, D.C. The singer's also channeling her frustration into new music. "My heart is broken," the singer posted on Wednesday, Jan. 6, after a mob breached the building in an effort to disrupt the certification of Joe Biden's presidential win. "It makes me to [sic] sad to believe how naive I was to think this couldn't possibly happen, and yet it did. Here we are," Demi continued. "For everyone in my comments saying 'where's d7' or wanting me to sing instead of speaking up about what needs to change in this country… THIS IS WHY I POST AS MUCH AS I DO. THIS IS WHY I CARE. THIS CANNOT HAPPEN ANY F–—— MORE," she wrote in another tweet. "I'm angry, embarrassed and ashamed. I'm in the studio working on something special after today's assault on democracy." Demi released her first politically inspired new song in October, a scathing takedown of President Trump called "Commander in Chief."
Kim Kardashian's wedding ring has been a moving target since at least mid-December
As new reports about the state of Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West's marriage and possible divorce plans continue to surface, Kim's usual wedding band/engagement ring combo has been a moving target. People noticed the SKIMS creator's left hand was ring-less in photos from Christmas Eve, as well as a few weeks prior. But on Monday, Jan. 4, as Kim stepped out of a car for a visit with her grandmother, People reports her wedding band was back on, though her engagement ring was not. The next day, a few hours before the outlet confirmed divorce is on the table as the couple navigates marital therapy, Kim modeled her new SKIMS Body Basics line — and her left ring finger was once again bare. Earlier this week, TMZ reported that despite their differences, Kim and Kanye not only spent Christmas together with their four kids, but plunked down massive amounts of cash for luxurious gifts for one another.
'The Office' creator Greg Daniels admits 'there's been talk of a 'Friends'-style reunion'
Could "The Office" be the next beloved yet defunct TV series to get the coronavirus pandemic reunion treatment? Following the show's recent arrival on Peacock, E! News checked in with "Office" creator Greg Daniels about the possibility and while he admitted there's nothing in the works, he certainly sounded open to the idea of getting Dunder Mifflin's finest back together. "I think it's probably more likely now that the show is on Peacock, but no plans right now. But people are more open to it now, it seems like," Greg said. "I think the issue is what is left to say about the characters. There's been talk of maybe a 'Friends'-style reunion kind of thing. I don't know, it's still pretty vague." Last February, Jon Krasinksi (who played Jim) told Esquire he'd 'love to do' a reunion if the chance arose. Other cast members, including Oscar Nunez (Oscar) and Kate Flannery (Meredith) said they'd be game, while Andy Buckley (David) joked that he's "been sending Greg an email on an hourly basis for the last eight years about" doing a reunion. From Greg's perspective, it would be hard to deal with the how the show ended — with many of the characters having left Dunder Mifflin. "But it would be fun to go find some lost episodes and shoot them as if they were back in 2010 or something," he mused.
Maria Menounos clarifies she's 'not pregnant yet'
Whoops! Maria Menounos and husband Kevin Ungaro aren't expecting kids just yet. Earlier this week, multiple outlets took something Maria said during a recent episode of her "Better Together" show as a very strong hint that she'll be a mom soon. "We are going to have a family," she said, by way of explaining why she and Kevin want to move from Los Angeles to Nashville, which the couple finds more kid-friendly. Turns out, there are no babies on the way — for now. Asked to elaborate on her comment, Maria told People: "We are still in progress, not pregnant yet! That's the plan, and we will share good news when we can."
Late-night hosts dispense with comedy after Capitol riot: 'Have you had enough?'
In the wake of the U.S. Capitol breach during a rally helmed by President Donald Trump on Wednesday, Jan. 6, late-night hosts ditched their planned monologues and addressed the chaos that was likely on the minds of most of their viewers. While Jimmy Fallon went for a reassuring tone, telling his audience "good will prevail," his peers were less calm. Jimmy Kimmel pointed out, "The police were very laidback compared to the Black Lives Matter protests," as he showed footage of police snapping selfies with and opening gates for rioters. Seth Meyers demanded the president be removed immediately. And Stephen Colbert admitted he was distraught. "I've rarely been as upset as I am tonight," he said (via The Guardian), before addressing everyone he holds responsible for the attack directly, from "Republicans who supported this president," who he asked, "have you had enough?" to far right media outlets. Finally, he took on congressional Republicans including Marsha Blackburn, Kelly Loeffler, Ron Johnson and John Kennedy. "Why'd you run away?" he asked. "… You can run all you want, for the rest of your lives, but you can never escape the responsibility of what you brought upon American democracy today," Stephen said in closing. "This was never some sort of peaceful protest. This was Charlottesville come home to roost on Capitol Hill."
Late-night hosts weren't alone in using their platforms to address the violence that took place Wednesday at the U.S. Capitol. On the Thursday, Jan. 7, edition of "The View," conservative co-host Meghan McCain urged her fellow Republicans to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Donald Trump from office immediately. "[Trump] is clearly a president who has turned into a mad king, and at this point, I'm calling on all Republicans and conservatives who still have clout — we have to invoke the 25th Amendment. We cannot withstand this. Our country cannot go on like this," said Meghan. "You are not Patriots. You do not represent America," she told the rioters, before accusing those involved with the Capitol breach of "abusing … all that I love and have grown up with for your own sick agenda."
Hilaria Baldwin loses brand partnership amid heritage controversy
The fallout from Hilaria Baldwin's Spanish heritage controversy is coming at a monetary cost as well as an emotional one for the yoga instructor. After a handful of social media posts questioned Hilaria's background, noting that she has an occasional Spanish accent and has said she's from Spain despite having been born and raised in Boston, Hilaria's lost one of her brand partnerships, according to Page Six. It seems Cuties Baby Care has opted to cut ties with the mother of five because of consumer feedback about Hilaria. "In response to the inquires we have received, we would like to inform all of our loyal Cuties followers that Hilaria's partnership with Cuties Baby Care ended at the end of 2020," the company told Page Six in a statement. "We thank Hilaria for the support she provided in 2020 and wish her, and her family, continued health and happiness in the New Year." The company later sent a second statement to the outlet in which it clarified that Hilaria's six-month contract was up at the end of December. If the second statement elaborated on the mention of "inquiries" the company has received, Page Six did not share that information. Hilaria has defended herself on social media multiple times, saying she was raised with frequent trips from the Boston area, where she lived through her high school years, to Spain, where her parents relocated for their retirement, and that she grew up with both cultures. "Today we have an opportunity to clarify for people who have been confused — and have been confused in some ways by people misrepresenting me," she later told the New York Times when asked about the scandal. "There is not something I'm doing wrong," she added, "and I think there is a difference between hiding and creating a boundary."
Dr. Dre to pay estranged wife Nicole Young $2M in temporary spousal support
Dr. Dre's very long week is finally coming to an end, as is his battle with his estranged wife, Nicole Young. The Blast reported on Wednesday, Jan. 6, that Dre has agreed to pay Nicole $2 million in temporary spousal support after a drawn-out battle in which Nicole asked for $2 million plus $5 million in legal fees. Per The Blast, she's expected to use the money, which will be sent early next week, for living expenses. The agreement is temporary until April, when both parties are due back in court. The judge handling their case reportedly wanted to allow time for the producer to recover from the brain aneurysm that landed him in the hospital on Monday. While he was hospitalized, police also arrested burglars suspected of trying to break into his home.
