Looking good Selena! The 20-year-old singer got some much needed R&R on May 11, sunbathing in Miami, Fla. with a friend.
Selena Gomezhas been hard at work promoting her new music — she’s performed “Come & Get It” on pretty much every show thinkable and she’s been traveling across the country doing radio interviews and photo shoots (and stopping at Hooters). Well, on May 11 she finally got a hot minute to relax poolside and bake in the warm Miami, Fla. sun. If only a shirtless Justin Biebercould’ve been there to accompany her!
Selena Gomez Kicks Back In A Bikini
The “Come & Get It” singer laid back and chit-chatted with a girlfriend, obviously happy to get some down time. She was looking absolutely stunning in a spaghetti-strapped two-piece bikini that fit her perfectly.
It appears that Selena and her friend topped off the pool day the only way possible — with a couple of fun, tropical drinks!
Later in the day Selena was spotted leaving the pool rocking a light, white coverall, retro sunglasses and a wide-brimmed black hat. Take notes girls — this is poolside fashion at its best.
Justin Bieber Lets Selena Gomez Know How ‘Hot’ She Is
Justin is definitely going to freak when he sees these sexy pics of Selena getting her tan on. After all, he could barely control himself after seeing Selena’s music video for “Come & Get It!”
A source close to the couple told HollywoodLife.comEXCLUSIVELY that “Justin told Sel how hot he thinks her new video is.” The source went on to say that Justin is working on being more outwardly supportive of Selena and letting her know how much he loves everything about her.
So we’re assuming that the second the Biebs gets a glimpse of Selena in that bikini, he’ll be picking up the phone to voice his approval. What do you think of the pics, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
In a touching new interview, the mother of one of the kidnapped girls in Cleveland, Nancy Ruiz, showed unbelievable strength and forgiveness, revealing that she would hug her daughter’s kidnapper if she saw him and would even offer him redemption.
Nancy Ruiz, the mother of Gina DeJesus, refuses to be consumed by hatred. Despite allegations that Ariel Castrokidnapped her daughter, tortured her and held her in captivity for nine years, Nancy insists that she would show him forgiveness if they were ever face-to-face again.
Gina DeJesus’ Mother: ‘I Forgave’ Ariel Castro
“I would hug him and I would say, ‘God bless you,’” Nancy told ABC’s 20/20. “I did not hate him. I forgave him years ago. I said it: I forgive whoever done it, just let her go.”
In a horribly ironic twist, Nancy actually knew Ariel very well after growing up in the same neighborhood. Her sister lives less than three blocks away from the house where Gina was trapped for close to a decade, and Ariel and Nancy would often bump into each other. Shockingly, Ariel would actually ask Nancy how she was holding up without her daughter.
Nancy Ruiz: ‘I Don’t Have Time’ To Be Hateful
No one would ever hold it against Nancy if she completely loathed Ariel for the rest of her days, but apparently she does not want to live a hate-filled life. “When you start to hate a person, that eats you up,” Nancy said. “I don’t have time for that. I have to be, you know, I want to be happy, like I am now.”
Nancy’s positive outlook in the face of the terrible things Ariel allegedly did to Gina is shocking, and admirable. Most people would feel a burning anger towards the man who took their daughter away for nine years and tortured her. Nancy no doubt has that anger within her, but to be able to rise above it and preach forgiveness — especially when Ariel Castro likely doesn’t deserve an ounce of it — is stunning.
Strap yourselves in — Kelly Osbourne revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Miley’s upcoming album is going to blow you away and make you totally forget that ‘Hannah Montana’ ever existed!
A whole lot has changed since Miley Cyrusreleased her “Party In The USA” jamming sophomore album, Breakout, in 2008. Miley now has an edgier haircut, is engaged to Liam Hemsworth, and is definitely more experienced in all aspects of life. Kelly Osbournetalked to HollywoodLife.comEXCLUSIVELY and said that for all these reasons, the new album is going to be “amazing.”
Kelly Osbourne: Miley Cyrus’ New Album ‘Steps Outside The Boundaries’
“You’ll love it,” Kelly says. “It’s such a departure from everything you’ve ever seen from Miley before.” Kelly attributes this departure to Miley coming into her adult years and going through real love with her fiance Liam.
“It is the grown up Miley Cyrus,” she adds.
“It takes a strong woman to step outside the boundaries and she has done it,” Kelly says. “I think you’ll like it.”
Miley Cyrus’ Album Influenced By Liam Hemsworth?
The “grown up” Miley surely has a ton to do with the ups and downs she’s experienced in her relationship with Liam. We’ve already heard one new song she made with Will.i.am that definitely had some Liam-focused lines. “Boy, you can be my lollipop, let me lick you up,” she croons on the track, also singing, “You pick me up when I fall down.”
Not only will Miley’s new love songs have a more honest feel to them because of the personal experiences she can now allude to, but the other songs are sure to have a fierce sex appeal that songs from Breakout never had.
The singer has grown and become edgier over the past five years and according to Kelly, it’s definitely for the best!
Are you excited for Miley’s new album, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!

One of the biggest steps in mending a relationship is forgiving past mistakes. HollywoodLife.com can tell you EXCLUSIVELY that Rob is doing just that — he’s over Kristen’s massive cheating scandal and he understands why it happened.
Robert Pattinson Is Sympathetic To Kristen Stewart
Rob realizes what a profound effect the Twilight saga and the immense fame that came with it had on Kristen.
“Keep in mind they were indie kids and no one knew Twilight was going to be a worldwide phenomenon,” the source says. Now Rob sees that all of the fame and pressure drove Kristen to make some uncharacteristic decisions: “Rob has written off the cheating to K-Stew being young and overwhelmed by their fame,” the source reveals.
Rob’s sympathy is remarkable, almost saintly — it would have been much easier to write Kristen off forever, but he knew deep down that it was just a big mistake and that they both truly love each other, so instead he worked to understand it. Thankfully, it appears as though he finally has.
Robert Pattinson: No Longer Cautious About His Relationship?
It wasn’t without some struggle and hesitation though. As recently as late March, Rob was reportedly having reservations. “He’s still very cautious when it comes to fully committing himself to her,” a source told Radar Online. “He’s a little scared that Kristen could cheat on him again.”
Now, those fears seem to be alleviated. Rob knows that Kristen is more mature and more devoted to making the relationship last, and they are more in love than ever now because of it.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is Rob right to write off Kristen’s cheating mistake? Let us know!
Welcome to the fantasies of Justin Bieber. On May 10, Selena stopped by a local Hooters to hang with all the sexy waitresses and presumably grab some chicken wings.
Selena Gomezposted a very interesting picture of herself at a Hooters (a Selena favorite, by the way), the restaurant famous for its sexy, voluptuous waitresses. The “Come & Get It” singer posed coolly surrounded by ELEVEN hot servers — and she still stood out as the sexiest!
Selena Gomez Stops At Hooters
On May 10 Selena tweeted the photo along with the caption, “Me and My Hooters….. smh :).” We’re sure many (ahem, Justin Bieber) were slightly upset that it wasn’t those hooters that Selena was referring to, but it’s still pretty amazing to see the 20-year-old superstar surrounded by so many scantily clad women.
What also makes this picture great is how much of a “bawse” Selena looks in it. All the waitresses are smiling in their uniforms while Selena is smack dab in the middle, posing sexily in tight jeans, sunglasses, and high-heeled black boots. She’s a true stunner!
After closely examining (for journalistic purposes, of course) the waitresses, we noticed that their shirts say “Warwick, RI.” Earlier in the day Selena made a guest appearance on a Boston, Mass. radio station and she later tweeted that she was “driving to my next stop.” Looks like Hooters was a fun, New England pit stop!
Selena Gomez Loves Hooters
You might be surprised to find out that Selena actually has a deep history with Hooters. The sexy restaurant has been a regular spot for date nights with Justin over the years, and she’s even admitted to helping her dad pick up Hooters waitresses as a kid!
“When I was seven, my dad would go to Hooters to watch [San Antonio] Spurs games, but he started noticing that when I would come, with my little pigtails, all the waitresses would be like, ‘Hey,’" she said in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar. "So he ended up spending time with me but with all those cute girls coming over. And that became our thing."
Selena Gomez might actually be one of Hooters’ most loyal customers!
“James and I were very comfortable with each other, and if he didn’t want to be there he wouldnt have showed up. Obviously there is some attraction there. He was like, ‘let me know what you are not comfortable with,’ and I was like, “I’m gonna have as much sex as I want.’”
She also revealed that her favorite part of her version of the sex tape was “the dominatrix stuff,” although that didn’t make it to Vivid’s final cut of the movie.
What do YOU think about what Farrah said, HollywoodLifers? Do you think she made the tape just for her own enjoyment?
Cleveland kidnapping victims, Michelle and Gina, became sisters under the most traumatic circumstances. Now, as Michelle is released from the hospital without a proper home to go to, Gina is literally welcoming her into her own family.
Amanda Berry, 27,and Gina DeJesus, 23, were welcomed back to their homes with immense fanfare — citizens gathered outside the houses and cheered triumphantly, leaving balloons and other gifts. The third Cleveland kidnapping victim, Michelle Knight, 30, spent her first days of freedom in a hospital bed being treated for physical and mental abuse, and has not had such a joyous homecoming. Because she grew up in an abusive family before being kidnapped by Ariel Castro, she has no real home to go to — but Gina and her family are changing that.
Michelle Knight Taken In By Gina DeJesus’ Family
After Michelle refused to reunite with her mother, the DeJesus family stepped up and offered to take care of her, Mail Online reports.
“She was Gina’s sister for ten years in that house and she’s still her sister now,” said Lupe Collins, a friend of the family. “They’re going to take her in as their own family member and help her.”
It is an unbelievably moving gesture by the DeJesus family and it also further illuminates just how tightly-woven these three girls have become after surviving Ariel’s alleged horrific acts. Speaking to Good Morning America on May 9, Gina’s mother, Nancy Ruiz, alluded to that, explaining that it initially took some time before Amanda, Gina, and Michelle were okay being separated. For nine years, these three girls were all one another had.
Now, after everything Michelle has gone through — before and during her captivity — she deserves a stable, loving home life, and Lupe insists that’s what she’ll get from the DeJesuses. “They're a loving family, a giving family. Felix and Nancy will take care of her and make sure she gets the helps she needs.”
Michelle Knight’s Previous Family Struggles
Michelle was reportedly abused by her mother and family and had an extremely difficult life even before she was kidnapped, which is why she refuses to reconnect with them. Her mother, Barbara Knight, told police at the time of Michelle’s disappearance that she had run away after her young child was taken away by the Ohio Department of Family Services, according to Mail Online.
Eleven years later though, Barbara is just happy that her daughter is alive and well, and is hoping that she and Michelle can bury whatever animosity still exists between them. “I just wish that my daughter would reach out and let me know that she’s there,” Barbara, who now lives in Florida, told WKYC.
“I don’t want her to think that I forgot about her… Hopefully whatever happened between us, if something did, I hope it heals because I really want to take her back to Florida with me.” Barbara is reportedly working with a lawyer to fight for access to Michelle.
The most important thing of all is that Michelle finds happiness and comfort after an unimaginable decade of pain and torture. And it’s so heartwarming to see that Gina and her family are so willing to open their doors to Michelle. What do you think, HollywoodLifers?
The proud mamas-to-be aren’t afraid to bare it all to the world, and proudly showed off their beautiful bare bumps on the cover of glossy magazines! Click through our gallery of sexy pregnant celebs, and let us know whose cover YOU like best!
Kim Kardashian revealed her fit pregnant figure on the cover of Us Weekly, which hit select stands on May 8, and proved that she wasn’t afraid to bare it all in front of millions. But Kim’s revealing magazine cover comes after a long line of sexy pregnant cover shoots, starting with Demi Moore‘s iconic 1991 Vanity Fair cover, in which she was completely naked — and super pregnant.
Kim Kardashian’s Bare Bikini Cover
The mom-to-be, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Kanye West, must have been tired of all of the mean comments about her pregnancy weight gain, so she decided to shut them up for good — and bare it all on the cover of Us Weekly!
Even though it wasn’t a staged photo shoot, Kim showed off her 7-month baby bump and bikini bod in a photo that (probably not-so-accidentally) made it on the cover of the magazine. Her bikini pic proved that she wasn’t ashamed of her pregnant body — and wasn’t going to be attacked by anyone!
But the fashion mogul wanted to prove she was still sexy and confident, so she graced the cover of Elle‘s April 2012 issue completely naked and baring it all! She put her naked body on full display, and carassed her big baby bump while covering her bareb reasts with her hands.
Of course, Jessica’s cover was a replica of Demi’s 1991 Vanity Fair cover, and other pregnant celebs have followed in Demi’s footsteps — Britney Spears on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar, Cindy Crawford on the cover of W and ClaudiaSchiffer on the cover of Vogue Germany.
So what do YOU think has the sexiest bare baby bump magazine cover, HollyMoms? Do you like the trend, or do you think it’s too revealing? Let us know!
Rihanna hit up the swanky Rose Bar in New York City on May 10 for a wild night and didn’t hesitate to rub it in Chris’ face. The Twitter battle rages on!
You don’t want to see Rihannamad, especially if your name is Chris Brown. The Unapologetic singer continued to call out Chris on Twitter while she and a group of girlfriends partied hard in New York City.
Rihanna To Chris Brown: ‘Chu Ain’t A King’
RiRi sent out yet another confrontational tweet in the early morning of May 11, still in throes of a night out. “Got a thang for King, but chu ain’t a King!!!” she posted. The tweet was sent out along with an Instagram picture of Rihanna looking super sultry sitting in the dark with a martini.
The 25-year-old singer seemed to be calling out Chris on his ego and further stating that she doesn’t need him at all.
And by the looks of her wild night out, she’s right. An eyewitness tells HollywoodLife.comEXCLUSIVELY that Rihanna was going hard at the Rose Bar, an upscale lounge located inside the Gramercy Hotel in New York City.
Rihanna and a group of her friends were partying to the max, the insider says, totally “living it up and having a great time.” The eyewitness also says that there weren’t any guys in the mix, just a handful of girls helping their friend forget an ex.
Rihanna & Chris Brown’s Twitter Fight
The feud that has been bubbling between Chris and Rihanna since their split came to a head on May 10 when Chris posted his most overt Twitter diss yet. “She’s not mine if she’s everybody else’s,” the R&B star tweeted.
The insinuation that Rihanna is involved with multiple men is totally insulting, and a classic ex-boyfriend accusation. We all knew Rihanna wasn’t going to let it slide, and her retaliation is sure to twist the knife in Chris’ broken heart even more.

Robert Pattinson Show His Love For Kristen Stewart
“He’s telling her more and more that he loves her,” a source close to the couple says. “It’s helping and it makes Kristen feel special and cared for.” We can’t even handle this right now — it’s too cute!
Rob being more expressive is a huge step for them, the source notes, because he is such a “quiet, reserved guy.” Flourishing, romantic expression of love aren’t exactly his thing. But, the source says, Rob is doing everything he can to make things work and is even confiding in Kristen’s closest friends. Turns out they were the ones to suggest that he be more vocal!
Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson Working On Relationship
Kristen was actually the first to make a concerted effort to express her affection for Rob. HollywoodLife.com reported EXCLUSIVELY that before their separation, “Kristen played hard to get,” but that after the reunion she began to make herself completely available so that the relationship could grow. “She is going out of her way to prove herself,” a source said.
The results of the couple’s efforts have been obvious. They have looked totally in love on their dates — whether it be showing PDA in a back booth of a concert or holding hands at Coachella, Rob and K-Stew seem so happy together, and also so comfortable with each other.
It’s great to hear they’re doing so well. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
The iconic entertainer tragically died on May 10 — three years ago that is. After a newspaper incorrectly reported that Lena died yesterday, May 10, 2013, Twitter blew up and mourned the sultry singer’s death all over again.
In this day and age, one mistake can turn into accepted fact pretty quickly. On May 10, 2013, the newspaper The Sacramento Bee reported that actress/singer Lena Horne had died at the age of 92, citing an article by The New York Times. There was only one problem — the article was three years old, and Lena died in 2010.
Lena Horne Dies?
The Sacramento Bee’s mistaken post was all it took to get Twitter riled up though. Very quickly Lena Horne began trending, and users mourned and tweeted their condolences as if the star had just passed away.
“Just learned that Lena Horne passed away. Saddened. A legend. A true star,” one fan tweeted. “Crying so hard. I didn’t know that her death would affect me like this!” said another.
Lena Horne Died… Three Years Ago
Not surprisingly, there were also many who were scratching their heads as if to say, “Wait, didn’t Lena Horne die three years ago?”
“LISTEN UP: Today, May 10, marks the THIRD ANNIVERSARY of the death of Lena Horne. Got it? Third anniversary,” one fan tweeted trying to set the record straight. Another sent out the message, “Lena Horne died 3 years ago people. I'm judging you if you didn't know that already.”
This isn’t the first time Twitter has reacted to a mistaken report of a celebrity’s death — the social networking site has also been responsible for the false passings of Cher, Denzel Washington, and Jeff Goldblum, to name a few.
It just goes to show how quick we are now to assume truth, and how rumors and mistakes can spread like wildfire and become accepted as fact. The Sacramento Bee has since removed the original post from their website.
