A lot has been happening on Planet Fluff this week. Here’s what you need to know:
1. Golden Globes:The moments that everyone are talking about? Jodie Foster’s somewhat rambling, at times angry and sarcastic but very heartfelt speech in which she opened up about her sexuality, loneliness and her kids. Must-watch. See the speech here.
Other celebrity revelations from the evening: Bradley Cooper denying that – despite their amazing on-screen chemistry – he and co-star Jennifer Lawrence in The Silver Linings Playbook are not dating. US Weekly reports that when questioned about the rumoured romance, Cooper responded:
“Oh my God. That’s very funny. No, my God. No… We’ve done two movies together. If it didn’t happen by now, it’s not going to happen. No, no, no, no, no. Not even close. First of all, I could be her father. No, I’m kidding. But no, not even close.”
So… That’s a ‘no’, then?
Another must-see moment: Taylor Swift’s reaction to Adele winning Best original Song for “Skyfall”. Ms Swift was nominated for the same award for a song she contributed to The Hunger Games. While Adele charmed the crowd with her giggly acceptance speech, Taylor was caught on camera doing this:
3. Britney Spears has ended her engagement to her fiance/guardian, Jason Trawick. The 31-year-old mother of two was engaged to 41-year-old Trawick for just over a year.
Britney’s rep, Jeff Raymond, released a statement saying: “Britney Spears and Jason Trawick have mutually agreed to end their one-year engagement. As two mature adults, they came to the difficult decision to go their separate ways while continuing to remain friends.”
Britney also confirmed the breakup, announcing in the statement:
“Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement. I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends.”
Jason originally proposed to Britney during an intimate dinner on his 40th birthday in December 2011. It would have been the third marriage for Britney. She married Jason Alexander in Las Vegas in 2004 (and divorced him 55 hours later) and in 2007 she married the father of her two sons, Kevin Federline. Recently, Federline’s brother claimed to be the true father of those children but that’s a whole other (messy) story.
Here are some more celebrity splits you may not know about:
5. We’re “Friends, not lovers.” That’s how Les Miserables star Russell Crowe has described his relationship with burlesque star Dita von Teese.
