In the first girl vs. girl finale since season three, Candice & Kree sang three songs each in the hopes that America would choose them as their next Idol — who are YOU voting for?
Kree Harrison and Candice Glover both admit that winning American Idol will change their lives — but only one can walk away with the title. After three rounds of singing on the Idol stage for the last time, who are you voting for tonight, HollywoodLifers?
‘American Idol’ Finale — Candice & Kree Battle It Out
For round one, it was Idol creator Simon Fuller‘s song choice.
Kree started the night with “Angel” by Sarah McLachlan. I thought it was a perfect song choice.
Candice sang Adele‘s “Chasing Pavements.” I thought she sounded amazing and looked so comfortable on the stage.
“I’m so proud to be a part of this show, particularly of this season, because this talent is so magnificent. It’s refreshing and it makes me proud of America. Wow. I’m blown away,” Mariah said after the first round.
Randy said both songs were a little sleepy but gave the edge to Candice.
Then Carly Rae Jepsen bopped around the stage while performing her new single “Take A Picture.”
Round Two — A Preview Of The Winning Single
Round two was Candice and Kree’s to-be-released single, should they win.
Kree sang what could be her winning single, “All Cried Out.” Again, sleepy and slow. She also sounded quite strained, but maybe that was just her emotions running wild. She got a standing ovation from Keith, Randy and Mariah.
Candice sang “I Am Beautiful.” I loved her powerful message and the powerful lyrics of the song.
“I love [Kree's] composure. This song made her reach down in her gut more than she ever has before,” Nicki said.
“Both of these songs were tailor-made for the girls,” Keith said.
Keith said Kree won round two, while Nicki said Candice won.
Round Three — Their Last Chance For Votes
Round three was their favorite song of the season.
Kree sang “Up To The Mountain” and got a standing ovation from all four judges. Keith said it was absolutely beautiful. “That right there was a winning performance,” Randy said.
Candice sang “I Who Have Nothing” and got a standing ovation from all four judges as well. I thought it was the best performance of the night! “Superstar, commands the stage. This is a big stage and the fact that you always walk on there and own it immediately — salute!” Nicki said. “You just shot this night to a whole new level,” Randy raved.

Oh wow! Rihanna’s telling the world she doesn’t need Chris, or any man for that matter, by wearing an extremely provocative ‘self-love’ t-shirt! Do you think she’s dissing Chris?
Is Rihanna sending Chris Brown a very explicit message? It sure looks that way! The 25-year-old Unapologetic artist stepped out in New York on May 15 sporting a very raunchy t-shirt that seems to be sending Chris a specific message — she doesn’t need him anymore!
Rihanna Wears A ‘Self-Love’ T-Shirt
Rihanna turned heads, literally, as she left her NYC hotel wearing a t-shirt with a pretty provocative picture! The shirt shows a woman with her hand in her underwear with the title “D.I.Y.”, which stands for “do it yourself.”
Wow, there’s nothing subtle about this message at all. Is she telling Chris she can take care of business herself?
Rihanna Was Sick Of Chris Not Putting Their Relationship First
It’s apparent that Rihanna is trying to get over the fact that she put in 200 percent in her relationship with Chris, and received nothing in return. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, one of the reasons that Rihanna and Chris split was because he wasn’t putting much effort into their relationship.
“It's frustrating for her because she has a big heart,” the source says. The relationship pretty much dissolved because Rihanna expected Chris to put more effort into making the relationship work.
“She gives and gives and loves him hard but there is only so much a girl can do,” says the insider. “She doesn't think Chris knows that or even cares.”
Now it’s your turn to sound off, HollywoodLifers. Do YOU think Rihanna is sending Chris a message? Vote below!
On May 15, a jury found that Jodi was ‘exceptionally cruel’ when she brutally murdered her boyfriend, making her eligible to receive the death penalty.
On May 8, Jodi Arias was found guilty for the murder of her boyfriendTravis Alexander. Travis’ body was found in the shower of his Mesa, Ariz. home after he was brutally murdered in June 2008. Jodi admitted to stabbing him 27 times in the back and torso, shooting him in the head, and slitting his throat from ear-to-ear.
Jodi Arias Facing Death Penalty
On May 15, Jodi appeared in front of a jury again, and they determined her crime was “exceptionally cruel.” The jury’s verdict makes Jodi eligible for the death penalty in the next phase of her trial. As she learned the ruling, Jodi began sobbing in the courtroom.
After the announcement was made, the courtroom fell silent for two minutes. Prosecutor Juan Martinez pointed out that was how long Travis suffered when Jodi murdered him.
“He was stabbed in the heart, chased down and then he had his throat slit,” he said. “Those approximately two minutes that we talked about must have seemed like two lifetimes.”
Jodi Arias Begs For The Death Penalty
Twenty minutes after the jury found Jodi guilty of first degree murder, she gave an interview with Phoeniz, Arizona’s FOX affiliate where she revealed she wants the death penalty.
“The worst outcome for me would be natural life,” Jodi revealed to FOX. “I said years ago that I'd rather get death than life, and that still is true today.”
Jodi added, “I believe death is the ultimate freedom, so I'd rather just have my freedom as soon as I can get it.”

After admitting her heroin addiction on Facebook, Jenelle Evans was arrested on April 23 for heroin possession along with three other charges, including simple assault, sell and distribute, and simple possession of a schedule II controlled substance.

Kourtney’s former fling, Michael Girgenti, is threatening to sue her for a DNA test because he believes that he is Mason’s father. HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY that if Kourtney doesn’t comply, she could potentially lose custody of Mason!
Kourtney Could Face Custody Battle If She Refuses DNA Testing
A California lawyer tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that if Kourtney refuses the test, the judge can technically give Michael custody of Mason:
It is theoretically possible that if she declines the judge could rule against her and grant Michael paternity and the rights that go along with that. Shockingly, California Law permits anyone that alleges that they are the father of a child to sue for paternity. The court is required to order the genetic testing and if a party refuses to submit to the test, the court may automatically grant the other party paternity. That means that if Kourtney refuses to submit to genetic testing, the court could find Michael is the father and would award him visitation rights and he would have to option to sue for custody.
Michael Doesn’t Need Kourtney’s Consent For DNA Test
HollywoodLife.com spoke with another California family lawyer who explained that if Michael does sue Kourtney, she will be required to submit to DNA testing:
The family code in the state of California in any court preceding in which paternity is a relevant fact states that the court shall order the mother, child, and alleged father to submit to genetic testing. If either party refuses to submit to the test, the court may resolve the question of paternity against that party, or enforce the order compelling that person to submit to genetic test. It only takes a swab of saliva so likely the will simply enforce genetic testing for all three parties.

Plus, Santana has a serious new relationship on the horizon, HollywoodLife.com sister site TVLine is reporting.
You may have shed a tear or two (like I did) when Brittany (Heather Morris) said her goodbyes to New Directions and McKinley High on the May 9 season finale of Glee, but fret not — the actress, who is expecting her first baby this fall — is likely to return for season five!
Brittany Returning To ‘Glee’ For Season 5
“All indications are that Morris will be back in some capacity, but probably not until the first part of 2014 at the earliest (Morris' baby is due in the fall),” Michael Ausiello notes in his most recent edition of “Ask Ausiello” on HollywoodLife.com’s sister site TVLine. However, don’t expect a Brittana reunion — “Word on the street is [Santana's] getting a serious NYC girlfriend in Season 5.”
On the season finale, Brittany accepted an early admission to MIT and left all of her friends, boyfriend Sam (Chord Overstreet) and true love Santana (Naya Rivera) behind. However, we all know the truth — Heather Morris is allegedly expecting a baby! (She needs a maternity leave, ya’ll!)
‘Glee’: Season 5 Will Have A Winter Break
There’s a chance Brittany’s absence from the first half of season five may go unnoticed. Kevin Reilly, Fox Entertainment chairman, said that Glee will get a midseason break before returning in late spring with a “creative twist” in store! Brittany will likely only miss a number of episodes before the series goes on a winter/spring-ish hiatus, giving Heather more time to stay at home with her baby and re-energize!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Brittany return? Should Santana date someone new? Tell us how you feel!

So sweet! The ‘Come & Get It’ singer surprised one of her biggest Selenators on a special episode of ‘Maury.’ Watch the amazing video!
Selena Gomez is so great to her fans! On the 2500th episode of Maury, Selena made a special appearance to give Hannah, a primordial dwarf, a special surprise for her 18th birthday!
Selena Gomez Makes Fan’s Birthday Wish Come True
In the episode, which airs on May 17, Hannah admitted to the show’s host, Maury Povich, that she is a huge fan of Selena. Maury wanted to give Hannah a special 18th birthday present, so he surprised her with a video message from Selena herself!
In the video message, Selena tells Hannah, “For your present, I actually want to give you backstage passes to my tour “Stars Dance,” and I hope you guys have a great day! I hope you have an awesome birthday, and I’ll see you on tour!”
Although the question was purposely asked to get a negative response out of Selena, the “Come & Get It” singer admitted she thinks Miley was 100 percent deserving of the title. Selena seemed genuinely happy for her friend when she responded, “She's beautiful.” Selena also added that she didn’t understand why that kind of list even existed in the first place.

Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart: This Too Shall Pass
That is so sad. We had heard exclusively at HollywoodLife.com that Kristen had been planning a super special day for Rob.
The pair of you have been through so much in the past year. Breaking Dawn 2, Snow White and the Huntsman, Cosmopolis, and On The Road were huge and time-consuming professional commitments.
And then of course, you both had to cope with the hurt and embarrassment of Kristen’s public cheating episode with Rupert Sanders.
But the amazing thing was that the episode ended up actually bringing you closer. You worked through your feelings, opened up to each other, spent important time working on your relationship, and ended up being happier and more in love than ever.
Kristen, you totally realized that Rob was the man you loved — your soul mate for life. And Rob, you were able to forgive Kristen and show her more love than ever before.
That’s why whatever fight or disagreement that you may have had on Rob’s birthday needs to be worked through.
Kristen, you were planning a whole day of swimming and music with friends and your dogs, Bear and Bernie. You wanted to shower Rob with love and affection.
That’s why when we heard that instead, you were spotted looking upset on his birthday, May 13. You were seen at a friend’s house pacing back and forth, talking on the phone for almost an hour, and it seemed like something had gone very wrong.
After ending that emotional phone call, Kristen, you drove to another friend’s house where you ended up talking in the car for another 45 minutes, according to a report on X17 Online.
In the meantime, you and Rob have not been sighted together since May 8.
Rob & Kristen: Don’t Give Up Just Yet
Well, Rob and Kristen, no relationship is perfect. Every romance has its ups and downs. Couples who love each other do argue and disagree. That’s normal, and it doesn’t mean that it has to be the end of the road for you.
You two have survived far worse and emerged stronger as a couple.
So, you both need to sit down together and talk out whatever your issue or issues are. You love and respect each other so much — you can definitely work this out.
If you feel like you need some unbiased counseling, get it.
You two have so much in common. You have common interests, passions, friends, goals and lifestyles. And that’s not easy to find.
Don’t throw everything out over one alleged fight, even a big one.
As far as Rob’s 27th birthday, you can always celebrate a couple of days late. It will end up being just as fun and special!
Don’t you agree HollywoodLifers? Don’t you think Rob and Kristen can work through their issues if they did have a big fight? Let me know!
The reality sisters have released their latest collection and it’s full of wearable items that you can easily take from day to night. Browse through the looks right here!
We’re finally getting a sneak peek at the latest Kardashian Kollection. The new clothes in the lookbook consist of everything from dresses to tops and everything in between — and like most of the other ‘Kollections,’ most of their garments come in neutral colors.
Not all of the clothes come in neutral colors though; The pink and purple ombre blazer is definitely going to be this spring’s hottest accessory. It can be dressed up or down — whether you want to wear it to work or wear it out at night with black pants, heels, and a cute clutch. Another cute look is the short suit; it is so chic and different! Because it is white, you can wear any color shirt you want to really make a statement! Another one of our absolute faves is the motorcycle jacket. It’s not all leather, it’s not as warm and could be worn during the spring with anything.
When the Kardashian sisters were asked which pieces they liked the best, it varied! Kim, queen of peplum garments, made this comment about the plain black peplum dress from their new line: “I love the sophisticated look of this dress. The peplum is really on trend. It’s the perfect date night dress.”
In regards to the simple leopard, tank top dress, Kourtney commented, “I love the glamorous grunge of this leopard print. It’s just a feminine piece that you can mix with so many different pieces to get so many different looks!”
Khloe made a comment about her favorite piece from the Kollection, the mint body con dress, “We wanted to incorporate a beautiful mint color into our spring collection. With the perfect tan, the mint is definitely going to pop!”
The sisters are also introducing Kardashian Kurves, a plus size section of the new line, this spring. Stay tuned for the spring/summer Kardashian Kollection look book which debuts online May 20th.
Although a new report claims that Kanye had an affair with a man, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Kim and Kanye aren’t bothered by the report because they’re used to having false things said about them!
“He doesn’t care,” the source reveals. “If Kanye were a regular person, you know, without all the fame, the money, the music, the lifestyle, nobody would even make up s*** about him. It comes with the territory though and he’s used to it.”
The source also notes that Kim doesn’t care about the rumors either. “As much s*** that has been written and said about her and her family, she doesn’t give a f*** either.”
The source adds, “It’s sad though, but they both understand that these magazines have to make some money, and unfortunately it’s got to be off their backs.”
Kimye Fans Don't Believe Yeezy Is Gay
When the report surfaced, Kimye fans were outraged and took to Twitter to blast the rumors.
A fan named Mary Sue tweeted, “There's no way the kanye gay rumors are true, no way!”
Another Twitter user named Remi wrote, “@InTouch has lost it.. They say Kanye is gay & has a lover in Paris. While Kim is humiliated. Smh. I hope kanye sues them.”
“WHERE do people get this stuff? Media hype!! Put out music Kanye not rumors!” wrote Mama Char.

These modeling BFFs both stunned on the red carpet at ‘The Great Gatsby’ premiere in Cannes in jaw-dropping gowns! Which look did you like better? VOTE!
Cara Delevingne looked gorgeous in a black lace Burberry gown while her bestie, Georgia May Jagger, was also stunning in bright red gown with rhinestones at The Great Gatsby premiere during the Cannes Film Festival on May 15. Both looks had a sexy factor to them but which gown did YOU think was most glam?
Cara Delevingne Cannes Dress:
Cara has been in the limelight quite a lot recently and it’s because the gorgeous 20-year-old always makes a statement wherever she goes! She walked across the red carpet as if it was the runway of a fashion show — and it’s so fitting, considering she has strutted her stuff on the Burberry catwalk! Her black gown was so sexy and featured lace on the sleeves and on the back. An extremely low neckline was accentuated with a high diamond necklace and huge dangly, diamond earrings. She topped off the look with a diamond ring, bright red nail polish that matched her red pout and her brand new lion tattoo that really stuck out on the red carpet!
Georgia May Jagger Cannes Dress:
Georgia was a lady in red, also sporting a plummeting neckline that gave way to embellishments. It looks like these model pals were both ready to take the plunge. Cutouts around her midriff allowed her to show some skin. I like that she didn’t take away from the rhinestones on her dress, simply accessorizing with statement earrings and leaving her arms bare. Shockingly red lipstick matched her beautiful gown and accentuated her big, pouty lips — it made the dress pop even more!
These model BFFs are getting even closer! In fact, The Sun reported that Cara is moving into Georgia’s Northern London flat where she’ll pay $1,826 a month in rent. We could only imagine how much fun they will have together!
Who do you think looked better? We can’t decide! VOTE.
Plus, which character won’t live to see season two? Spoilers ahead!
When it comes to The CW’s Arrow, the only thing constant is change. (Also, gratuitous shirtless scenes. But mostly change.) And the events of the May 15 finale — ominously titled “Sacrifice” — will change Oliver “almost completely,” Stephen Amelltold HollywoodLife.com on May 9 at the F**k Cancer event in Los Angeles.
We also talked to Stephen, 32, about last week’s big death — rest in pieces, Yao Fei — which he admitted was “kind of a big deal.”
“At the end of a first season, everybody thinks someone’s going to die, and it just so happens that it happened on our penultimate episode. … The last day on set is not morose. The last day on set is a party.”
More Death On The ‘Arrow’ Season Finale
It sounds like Yao Fei might be getting a new neighbor in TV heaven! Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Stephen promised more bloodshed on the finale.
“Not everyone survives the finale,” he tells the mag. “If a father's dying wish was the impetus for Oliver in season one, then the events that take place in the finale are the impetus for season two.”
What could this mean?! Will Tommy (Colin Donnell) lose his father, too? Will Roy (Colton Haynes) lose Thea (Willa Holland), inspiring his evolution into Arrow’s sidekick, Speedy? No one is safe, and anything can happen, so drop a comment with your theories below!
