Nick Jonas Dodge Questions on Why He Stopped Wearing His Purity Ring
NICK JONAS doesn't wear that purity ring anymore. In a new interview, when he was asked about the ring he answered, quote, "No. This is a real growth in me and that's not something I'm doing anymore.
"But I've got my set of values, things that are important to me now at this point in my life and that's all that matters."
He adds, quote, "My belief in God is still very strong and important to me as a person and I think that's all that should matter . . . What's important now is my relationship with God, and that I not judge and that I not be judged."
Jenny McCarthy Lost her Wedding Ring . . . When She Took It Off So She Wouldn't Scratch Donnie Wahlberg During Sex
JENNY MCCARTHY just married DONNIE WAHLBERG a few weeks ago, and she's already lost her wedding ring. But Donnie probably doesn't mind, because she lost it for a good cause.
She says, quote, "We were staying in a hotel and . . . it's hard to get romantic with diamonds on your hand. I removed it and put it on the room service table and then they came and turned down the room and the ring was gone."
She added, quote, "But you know what though? If you're gonna lose your wedding ring, you should lose it that way."
Shia LaBeouf Got a Restraining Order Against a Woman Who Thinks He's Einstein
SHIA LABEOUF is a bit of an odd bird but at least one woman thinks he's a genius. Shia had to get a restraining order against a woman named Graciela Nahle . . . who apparently thinks he's ALBERT EINSTEIN.
Graciela has been bothering Shia for months, and has even been to his house several times.
During one visit she was eating watermelon in his driveway and screamed at him, quote, "I am going to blow up your house! I am going to blow up the world! You are Albert Einstein and we belong together!"
Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling Have a Daughter
Even though they never even admitted they were expecting, EVA MENDES and RYAN GOSLING welcomed a baby girl last Friday. There's no word on their new daughter's name.
A source says, quote, "She's absolutely in heaven being a mom. She's never been happier. She and Ryan are just in awe of this beautiful person they created. It's a really special time for them."
A Fan Caught Video of Beyoncé Apparently Forgetting to Lip-Sync
BEYONCÉ is a great singer . . . but these days, even the best singers lip-sync. And apparently, she wasn't singing live at one of her shows in Paris this past weekend.
During her performance of "Partition", Beyoncé knelt down to greet some fans. She stopped "singing," but the vocal track continued without her. A fan caught it on video. Honestly, I was so busy staring at the white body suit that I missed it the first time. I hate body suits. Can that trend go away soon?
By the way, word has it Beyoncé and JAY Z are teaming up for a "huge" new album, which will come out in a year or so. There aren't any further details at this point.
(For a couple that's supposedly been on the cusp of divorce for months now, Beyoncé and Jay Z sure seem to enjoy doing stuff together.)
KJ's Kinda Nerdy News: SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! If you don't want to know ANYTHING about the next AVENGERS movie, DO NOT READ PAST THIS!!!
Here's the Plot of the New "Avengers" Movie
The official plot synopsis of "Avengers: Age of Ultron" was released yesterday. This is your LAST CHANCE to avoid spoilers.
Still with me? Here we go: "When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth's [heroes] are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance.
"As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure."
The synopsis also mentions Pietro and Wanda Maximoff . . . a.k.a. Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. They're played by AARON TAYLOR JOHNSON and ELIZABETH OLSEN.
Also, Iron Man's artificially intelligent computer helper, J.A.R.V.I.S., becomes the superhero Vision. PAUL BETTANY does the voice of J.A.R.V.I.S., and he'll be back in "Age of Ultron".
As you probably already know, JAMES SPADER is playing Ultron. The movie comes out next May.
KHLOE KARDASHIAN and rapper FRENCH MONTANA have broken up. A source says, quote, "It wasn't the perfect fit for her. They're still talking, though."

Hilary Duff is Separated from her Husband, But Still Not Interested in Aaron Carter's Advances
HILARY DUFF says she and her husband MIKE COMRIE have, quote, "uncoupled, for now." And yes, she used that LOVELY term that GWENYTH PALTROW introduced us to. But she added that there's a chance they'll get back together.
Even if they don't, though, it sounds like she has NO INTEREST in her childhood boyfriend AARON CARTER . . . who's spent much of this year using the media to angle for a second chance with her.
She says, quote, "I keep seeing that, that he keeps doing that. I don't know how I feel [about it]. I mean, that was so long ago, and obviously I'm still married, and I have a baby and we kind of just . . . don't know each other . . . so, yeah."
(Hilary and Aaron dated when they were 15 . . . over a decade ago. In fact, Aaron started a feud between Hilary and Lindsay Lohan, by macking both of them at the same time.)
Do Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Have a Prenup That Includes an Infidelity Clause?
ANGELINA JOLIE and BRAD PITT are happily married now but given that both of them have taken the plunge into matrimony before, it wouldn't be all that surprising if they have a prenup.
According to the "Star" tabloid, Angie and Brad DO have a prenup AND it contains an INFIDELITY CLAUSE. It states that if Brad leaves her for another woman, Angelina gets primary custody of the kids.
It also states that in the event of a divorce, they each take the millions they brought into the marriage . . . while anything they earned as a married couple goes into a trust for the kids.
Brad is worth an estimated $240 million, and Angelina is worth $185 million.
Paris Hilton Gave Cash to a Homeless Man . . . So He Kissed Her and Asked Her Out
PARIS HILTON gave money to a homeless man after leaving a restaurant recently . . . and he responded by HITTING ON HER. Fortunately, the paparazzi caught it all on video.
The guy gave her a kiss on the cheek after accepting her cash, and then started showering her with praise. He said, quote, "Paris cares for the homeless . . . she's beautiful, but she's not stuck-up."
Then, he made his move . . . quote, "[Would] you ever date a homeless guy? I love you, Paris."
She didn't say no. She just laughed, and said, quote, "Happy birthday, honey!" We're assuming the birthday thing was part of his initial pitch for the money . . . but you can't hear that in the video.
For the record, the guy was older . . . and was clearly just playing around.

NEIL PATRICK HARRISand his longtime partner DAVID BURTKA got married Saturday in Italy. Neil is 41, David is 39. They've been together more than 10 years, and have twins named Gideon and Harper, who'll be 4 next month.
Neil's rep said, quote, "We happily confirm that Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka were married in Italy in an intimate ceremony surrounded by their close friends and family."
And Neil Tweeted a picture, along with the caption, quote, "Guess what? David and I got married over the weekend. In Italy. Yup, we put the 'n' and 'd' in 'husband'.
They both wore black tuxedos and ELTON JOHN played at the reception. KELLY RIPA was among the guests, and yesterday on"Live! With Kelly and Michael", she said it was, quote, "very quiet" and "very private."
She also said there were fireworks and MAGIC TRICKS . . . because Neil is, quote, "way into magic."
They also took a page out of the Brad and Angelina handbook, by letting Gideon make his own choice about his role in the ceremony. Neil and David had wanted him to be ring bearer, but he had his own idea.
He told them he wanted to be the ORANGE BOY . . . so they let him PASS OUT ORANGES as he walked down the aisle. Harper was the flower girl.
Taylor Swift Hasn't Dated Since Harry Styles . . . And She's Not Having Sex Either
TAYLOR SWIFT's career may be humming, but she's going through a dry spell in the bedroom. Possibly a year-and-half-long dry spell.
In the new issue of "Rolling Stone", Taylor says she hasn't been on a single date since she broke up with HARRY STYLES early last year. She adds, quote, "People are going to feel sorry for me when you write that. But it's true."
There are two very good reasons she won't date. First, she says, quote, "Seventy percent of the time, when a guy asks me out, it'll just be a random e-mail."
And secondly, quote, "I feel like watching my dating life has become a bit of a national pastime. And I'm just not comfortable providing that kind of entertainment anymore."
So is Taylor just getting random action? Nope. She doesn't hook up. She says, quote, "I just think it's pointless if you're not in love, and I don't have the energy to be in love right now. So no."
Meanwhile, Taylor also revealed she's in a feud with another female singer. She won't say who, but she's the subject of a song on Taylor's upcoming album called "Bad Blood".
She says, quote, "For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'"
But then it all became clear . . . quote, "She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. I was like, 'Oh, we're just straight-up enemies.'"
Billboard.com has offered four guesses as to who Taylor's enemy could be. They're thinking Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, or Selena Gomez.
Denzel Washington and his Wife Were Once Mistaken for a Pimp and His Hooker
DENZEL WASHINGTONshot his latest movie "The Equalizer" in Boston, but before that, he didn't have the fondest memories of the city.
Thirty years ago he and his wife Pauletta were in Boston because she was doing a play there. And someone in a hotel mistook them for A HOOKER AND HER PIMP and called security. A fight ensued.
Denzel says, quote, "I didn't know how to fight, but I knew how to win."
Another night he was walking to her show, and someone called out to him, quote, "Hey [N-word], [N-word], [N-word], [N-word]. Hey boy." Denzel says, quote, "I was like, 'Damn.' That was the taste I had about Boston."
Jenny McCarthy & Donnie Wahlberg Are Adding to Drew Carey's Reward to Find the Mean Kids Behind the Ice Bucket Prank
DREW CAREY isn't the only one fired up about a horrible ALS Ice Bucket Challenge prank.
Newlyweds Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are also stepping up to help find the high school students responsible for harming a 14-year-old boy with autism through the viral movement.
Jenny tweeted "I'm joining Drew Carey's 10K Reward to Find Perpetrators Behind Horrible ALS Bucket Prank. Now it's 20k!" Jenny has a son, Evan, who was diagnosed with autism in 2005.
Husband Donnie is backing his wife on this. He tweeted, "If this 's---ty' prank was real…Then I am joining @JennyMcCarthy and @DrewFromTV and offering another $10K to the reward," he tweeted. "That makes 30K!"
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Got Married But Her Dad Wasn’t There
BRAD PITT and ANGELINA JOLIE pulled a fast one on the media and pretty much EVERYONE by getting married last Saturday in France. Their rep made the announcement yesterday.
It's amazing that they were able to keep it under wraps . . . especially considering how obsessed the media is with their status . . . so now everyone is playing catch-up. Here's what we know:
It happened at an estate Brad and Angelina own in Correns, France, which is probably the main reason they were able to keep it so secret. And it was a short "nondenominational civil ceremony conducted by a California judge."
There were only about 22 friends and family members there . . . although Angelina's father JON VOIGHT was NOT there. He gets to see the kids from time to time, but he's been trying to be a bigger part of Angelina's life. Clearly that's not working out.
He only found out yesterday after the news hit the Internet. He said, "It seems like it was very nice . . . and with all of the kids involved, it must have been a lot of fun and very beautiful. I'm happy for them."
He told a British tabloid that he's on his way to Europe to spend time with Angelina, Brad and the kids. As for missing the wedding, he chalked it up to a timing issue, since he had to be in the States for Monday's "Emmys".
Brad and Angelina read handwritten vows, and all six of their kids were involved in the ceremony. Angelina walked down the aisle with Maddox and Pax, Zahara and Vivienne threw flower petals, and Shiloh and Knox were the ring bearers.
Angelina wore a plain white floor-length antique lace and silk wedding dress with a veil . . . Brad wore a cream linen suit . . . the boys wore matching cream suits . . . and apparently the girls each had a dress made to match their individual style.
Brad and Angelina got engaged in 2012. This is Brad's second marriage, obviously. He married Jennifer Aniston in 2000, then dumped her in 2005 for Angelina.
This is Angelina's THIRD marriage. She was married to Jonny Lee Miller from "Elementary" from 1996 to 1999 . . . and then to Billy Bob Thornton from 2000 to 2003. So this is her first marriage to someone who only goes by two names.
It doesn't sound like they'll enjoy much of a honeymoon . . . apparently they've gone right to work on "By the Sea", the movie they're doing together in Malta.
Britney Spears is Single Again . . . Did She Catch Her Boyfriend Cheating?
BRITNEY SPEARSand her boyfriend David Lucado have broken up after a year and a half together. Last night, Britney Tweeted, quote, "Ahhhh the single life!"

David actually has a rep for some reason, and when he was contacted, he said, quote, "David is very, very in love with Britney. This is unfortunate and he hopes that it all works out."
As for Britney, a source says, quote, "She is heartbroken. But she will get through it. She's a strong girl and he was never right for her."

JOAN RIVERS is in critical but stable condition at a New York City hospital after she stopped breathing during surgery on her vocal cords, and went into cardiac arrest.
It happened at an outpatient clinic while doctors were putting a scope down her throat. She was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital.
She was sedated at the time, and it's not clear what drugs were used. Now she's been placed in a medically-induced coma, and they're going to take her out of it this weekend to assess the damage.
Her daughter MELISSA issued a statement saying, quote, "I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother. She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers."
Joan had just performed in New York the night before, and witnesses say she didn't show signs of any health problems . . . although she did joke about her age.
She said, quote, "I'm 81 . . . I could go at any moment. I could fall over right here and you all could say, 'I was there!'"
Blake Lively Got Attacked by Bees the Day Before Her Birthday
BLAKE LIVELYturned 27 on Monday, and she celebrated by nursing MULTIPLE BEE STINGS. Blake got SWARMED during a photo shoot on Sunday, and wrote about it on her website.
She said, quote, "I felt an electric shock of energy . . . was it excitement that I was about to turn another year older? Was it nerves? Why did it feel like agony? [My butt] hurt like hell . . . then my neck, back, legs and forehead.
"And oh my hands! They were shriveling. It felt like I was being shot by dozens of tiny invisible darts. I felt like the Wicked Witch, melting, melting, burning, melting."
"Now, I was a Monty Python sketch; running at top speed in no particular direction, whipping my arms and hands around like I'd just discovered they were growing out of my shoulders without my previous knowledge . . .
"I was shaken. I was swollen. I had to stop what I was doing to recuperate and / or shrink."

He said, quote, "I know [it was fake], because we've done this. From experience, there's a tour going on. So you sometimes have to ignite that tour. It's called a Jedi mind trick. The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot."

Jennifer Aniston is Tired of Being Hounded About Having Kids
JENNIFER ANISTON might want to have kids someday but she definitely wants people to stop HOUNDING HER ABOUT IT.
Jen tells NBC that people pressure her to become a mother. "It's always such an issue of, 'Are you married yet? Do you have your babies yet?' It's constant. I don't know. I don't have this checklist of things that have to be done and if they're not checked I've failed some part of my feminism or being a woman or my value as a woman because I haven't birthed a child. I've birthed a lot of things and I feel I've mothered many things. I don't think it's fair to put that pressure on people."
So there. Leave Jen alone.
