Serious facial injuries
When Carrie Underwood and her team announced that she had fallen and broken her wrist last November, they were actually downplaying how serious things really were. On Dec. 31, she sent out a message to her fan club in which she said she "might look a bit different" after getting "between 40 and 50 stitches" on her face. She said she's healing, but "not quite looking the same." She added, "When I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different. I'm hoping that, by then, the differences are minimal, but, again, I just don't know how it's all going to end up…. It's crazy how a freak random accident can change your life." Get well soon, Carrie.

Ellen DeGeneres is a part of a secret underground group that is hellbent on undermining Donald Trump… at least she is according to the president's son, Eric. Eric took to Twitter this week to show a screenshot of people Twitter recommended he follow. The three names were Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Ellen. He then suggested they were the #DeepState. Ellen, naturally, had some fun with it. "I have some questions," she said on her talk show. "First of all, which one is Eric? Did he kill the elephant or the cheetah? Second, what is Deep State? Is it near Dollywood? Because I'm in if it is." She joked that no one undermines Donald Trump more than himself. "Eric, I just want to say I'm honored that you think I'm powerful enough to be part of a government conspiracy," she said, adding that she's too busy for "Deep State" activities. "I've got my gay agenda meetings on Mondays. On Wednesday, Beyonce and I host an Illuminati brunch, and then Portia and I on the weekends are desperately trying to have a baby." She then added that Eric's sisters, Ivanka and Tiffany, follow her, so maybe he should too.

She announced the news in series of Instagram images on Jan. 1. In a pic of the couple kissing, she wrote, "He said to me: 'Before I met you, my world was in black and white.

It was fun while it lasted. Nicki Minaj and Nas have broken up after seven months together. The rappers split a few weeks ago, according to a Jan. 4 report from TMZ.
