Stork news for Beyonce and JAY-Z?
Beyonce and JAY-Z's twins turned 1 this week, and the couple saluted their little ones onstage in Manchester, England, on Wednesday, June 13, with Beyonce hollering, "Happy Birthday to Sir and Rumi. We love you!" But that detail is currently being overshadowed by another baby-related report. Now that Bey and JAY have made a few On the Run II tour stops, fans have started wondering whether a fourth child is on the way for the power couple. For starters, most of Bey's costumes this time around cover her midriff, from the black glitter bodysuit with a large piece of fabric that hangs from the neckline to the waist, obscuring Bey's middle, to the the structured minidress seen here. There's even a silver trench coat involved. Elle UK picked up on one fan's eagle-eyed realization that Beyonce's sparkling gold dress features a small red heart over her belly. "If you notice on Beyonce's dress a heart is located on the mid section. I'm convinced that there is a little angel growing inside. Heart represents Heart beat," the fan tweeted. Wrote another: "She's wearing blazers, capes, and extra accessories around her abdomen. I'm suspicious. Beyoncé might be pregnant again." Then there's the numeric matter of a rumored fourth child. "Beyonce looks pregnant again. Ya'll know they love 4's and she has all those coats for the tour," tweeted one fan, referencing the thing for fours Bey and JAY have. They got married on April 4, 2008 (4/4/08), they both have the number tattooed on their ring fingers, Jay released an album called "4:44," Bey dubbed her fourth studio album, "4," and their daughter, Blue Ivy's middle name is reportedly a reference to the Roman numeral version of the same number. So is bun No. 4 baking away beneath that gold dress? Certainly wouldn't be the craziest conspiracy theory to hit Beyonce …

Miley Cyrus defends Selena Gomez after Stefano Gabbana dis
Back in 2008, a teenage Miley Cyrus apologized for a nasty video she'd posted in which she made fun of then-Disney newbies, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato. Now an older and wiser 25, Miley's the one defending Selena against cyberbullies — in this case, Dolce and Gabbana cofounder, Stefano Gabbana. This week, the 55-year-old designer wrote on Catwalk Italia's Instagram account that Selena, 25, is "è proprio brutta," which translates to "she's so ugly," according to People. Someone mentioned it on one of Miley's fan sites and she quickly jumped in. "Well what that d— head said (if it's true) is f—— false and total bull—-. She's fine as f—." (It wasn't the first time Miley took D&G to task for their comments; she's repeatedly said she opposes the designers' politics, which have included homophobic and anti-IVF statements; D&G responded by refusing to work with Miley's model brother ever again.) Although Selena has not commented on the back-and-forth, Jamie King urged fans on Instagram to boycott the designers, "Because they are ugly humans who cannot handle the beauty of S that radiates from her Soul and her physical being. #boycottdolceandgabbana," People reports Stefano has since blocked Selena fan accounts and deleted some of the comments pouring in about him.
Who will Prince Louis' godparents be?
Duchess Kate and Prince William still could take Kate's mother's christening suggestions to heart, but don't expect much public access to Prince Louis' big day. That's according to royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams, who recently dished to Express on his predictions for the affair, which is expected to take place sometime in the next month or so. "There is no doubt that William and Kate want the christening of their children to be private but there will also be the opportunity for watching the Royal Family as they arrive, there are the traditional staged photographs and the symbolism will be most important. George was christened in the Chapel Royal where Diana's body lay before her funeral. Charlotte was christened at the church of St Mary Magdalene on the Sandringham Estate where Diana was christened," he said. Louis will almost certainly wear a replica of the gown Queen Victoria's daughter, Victoria, wore in 1841, when the Archbishop of Canterbury makes him an official member of the church. Richard also noted that while the godparents could be Prince Harry and Princess Eugenie, "the trend so far has been for almost all William and Kate's choices to be friends and not family." Whether the event is public, as it was traditionally until recent years, or private, Kensington Palace is likely to share photos of the christening, as it did with Princess Charlotte and Prince George.
Asia Argento is leaning on her 'Berlin Sisterhood'
One week after Anthony Bourdain's death, the late chef and journalist's girlfriend, Asia Argento, at least has her dry wit intact. On Thursday, June 14, the director shared a pair of Instagram Stories, one of which showed a card on which the words, "I'm a f—ing mess inside" had been crossed out and replaced with the words, "I'm fine." The second showed Asia with a friend and what the New York Post reports was a Spanish prayer. "May your holy spirit enlighten me in every step, decision and action that I make, in every word that comes out of my mouth," part of the prayer read. She captioned it simply, "Berlin Sisterhood." Rose McGowan appears to be among the friends Asia's leaned on since Anthony, 61, hanged himself. In an open letter last week, Rose urged readers to understand that neither Anthony nor Asia was responsible for Anthony's death. "There is no one to blame but the stigma of loneliness, the stigma of asking for help, the stigma of mental illness, the stigma of being famous and hurting," Rose wrote. "We must do more and be better, she added. "Anthony, our friend, would want it that way."
Amy Poehler sends THR interview off the rails with honest answers
Wake up, Hollywood Reporter, the you-know-what is way too real in 2018 for Amy Poehler to partake in your list of superlative-fueled silliness. Amy's responses to the questions THR asked each of its "40(ish) Most Powerful People in Comedy" list subjects are making fangirls and boys out of a slew of social media users, including Amy's friend and comedy peer, Rachel Dratch, who tweeted that Amy's answers "are genius." Here's a sample, courtesy of Vulture …In answer to THR's "Most memorable heckler …" Amy responded, "Who cares? The whole world is on fire." "Dream product endorsement …" earned the reply, "A giant whale just died in Thailand after eating 80 plastic bags." Amy's "favorite guilty pleasure?" "Let's not forget over 4,600 people have died in Puerto Rico." And the list goes on. (Pun definitely intended.)
Taylor Swift gets a surprise gift from U2
Taylor Swift got some extra encouragement ahead of her Reputation tour shows in Dublin from the city's most famous rock band. In an Instagram post on Friday, June 15, Taylor showed off the bouquet of red roses she found waiting for her at the venue in Ireland. In her hand, she holds a handwritten letter that reads, "From your Irish fan club… Bono, The Edge, Adam & Larry." Swoon. "Walked into my dressing room to find roses from @U2 and I WAS NOT READY FOR IT," Taylor admitted in the caption. "I LOVE U2 … I LOVE IRELAND … LETS DO THIS CROKE PARK!!!"
Jim Carrey reincarnates peeing Calvin for latest anti-Trump comic
Remember those Calvin and Hobbes-inspired truck decals that showed "Calvin" peeing with a maniacal look on his face? Jim Carrey brought them back to life this week with a new political comic he posted on social media. It features the same Calvin, but he's relieving himself on a grave that reads, "Here lies No. 45. Went to hell and took the GOP with him." He captioned the image, "Oh how I urine for this all to be over!" The "45" reference, of course, is to Donald Trump, whom the comic has called out multiple times in his drawings over the past few years. As he explained in an interview with Young Turks (via THR) this spring, "It is the job of a political cartoon to vex those who abuse power or enable those abuses. This administration has been lying to the American people from day one while plundering the country and debasing our values. And those who cover for this shameful mobster of a president are putting makeup on a melanoma and telling the cancer patient that everything's fine. Monstrous? You bet!"
Felicity Huffman built a replica of her childhood home
Anytime Felicity Huffman feels nostalgic for her childhood, she can simply walk inside the house she grew up in and bask in the memories. Sort of. As the actress recently told Architectural Digest, safety issues with her parents' house — where she and her siblings all got married — prevented her and her husband, William H. Macy, from buying it after her mom and dad died. So she did the next best thing and recreated it on her property in Snowmass, Colorado. The replica is a bit larger, she tells AD (via Celebitchy), and required the help of an architect, builders and a well-known interior designer. "It had a very particular feel and I think everyone sort of got the zeitgeist of that house," she recalls. Once it was done and she walked inside and says she felt relieved, "because I loved everything about it." The house was a dream come true. "There wasn't a catch. It's nostalgic. The smell of the area, the sounds of the brook, the trees. It's a little bit of a time machine because I do go back to being 8 and 10 and 15 and 20, on the lawn where everybody got married," says Felicity. Felicity later wrote on social media that, having had three generations in the last incarnation of the house, she hopes three more generations get to enjoy the new version. As she told AD, "[It's] is like mainlining memories while you're making new ones."
Shawn Mendes on the anxiety of singing about anxiety
On his new track, "In My Blood," Shawn Mendes gets candid about feels of anxiety, panic and loneliness, singing lyrics such as, "it's like the walls are caving," "afraid to be alone again" and "I'm trying to find a way to chill … can't breathe." In the new issue of Wonderland magazine, Shawn opens up about what it was like revealing those feelings in his music. "It was absolutely terrifying, I was thinking, what if people say, 'Why is he making sad songs? We like his songs about love.' I was terrified, then I realized it's not about that," he explains (via JustJared). "The day after it came out, I started getting messages from fans, friends and family about how important it was to them. You know, I couldn't be happier." He goes on to say he's been dealing with the anxiety problem by "talking to friends and family and talking to people, becoming more open and vulnerable with everything that's going on in my life," adding, "it's really hard at first, and with the public it's hard at first, but ultimately it made things easier for me."
Bill Cosby fires legal team ahead of sentencing
As his Sept. 25 sentencing looms, Bill Cosby's making one more attempt to keep himself out of jail for what could be a 30-year term. The New York Post reports the comic, who was found guilty on three counts of aggravated sexual assault in his battle with Andrea Constand, has cleaned house, lawyer-wise, replacing the team that handled his retrial. A spokesperson for the 80-year-old comic confirmed to the Post this week, "Joseph P. Green Jr. is Mr. Cosby's new attorney." Cosby's latest lawyer, a local pro from Pennsylvania, also hired and fired "multiple lawyers" before Brian McMonagle and Angela Agrusa covered the 2016 proceedings that ended in a mistrial. Michael Jackson's former lawyer, Tom Mesereau, took over from there. "I wish Mr. Cosby, his family, and his new defense team all the best," he said amid news of his firing.
