John Legend Starts the Fire in New La La Land Trailer

 

John Legend is heating things up in a new trailer for La La Land.

The soulful R&B singer provides the backup track for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone’s whirlwind love affair in the new clip released on Wednesday for the modern day musical.

Legend, in his first major film role, plays Keith, an established musician who convinces Gosling’s character, an old friend and keyboardist, to join a new band poised for commercial success called The Messengers.

The song featured in the clip, “Start a Fire,” was cowritten by Legend and becomes the band’s first big hit, making Gosling’s character a star and forcing him away from his budding romance with an aspiring actress, played by Stone.

While the film is Legend’s first major acting role, he’s no stranger to composing music for film. He won an Oscar and a Golden Globe in 2015 for cowriting “Glory” from the film of the same name.

La La Land, nominated for 7 Golden Globes, hits theaters everywhere Friday.

Kylie Jenner Gets Kissy in ‘Paradise’ — with a Parrot!

Kylie Jenner is getting kissy in paradise!

The youngest Jenner is soaking up the sun on vacation with her boyfriend Tyga, his 4-year-old son King, and her best friend Jordyn Woods — and is making some new friends while enjoying the bikini weather.

On Wednesday, 19-year-old Jenner shared a video of herself on Instagram giving a kiss to a parrot. In the adorable video, Jenner, who is flanked by King and Tyga, places a seed between her lips, which the red and yellow parrot gently takes from her mouth with his beak.

Since leaving wintry Los Angeles for her oceanfront vacation, the Kylie Cosmetics founder has been sharing snapshots on social media.

“PARADISE,” she captioned a photo of herself and Tyga sitting side-by-side while enjoying the setting sun on the waterfront horizon.

And while many are hitting up the gym to ready for the upcoming summer bikini season, Jenner is already embracing her bathing suit bod.

In a series of snaps, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star documented herself from her hotel room posing in a green, two-piece bathing suit.

Anyone ready for more vacation?

Jerry O’Connell on Life with Five Pets: ‘I’m Definitely Lowest on the Chain’

Living with three dogs and two cats, Jerry O’Connell often falls to the bottom of the food chain at the home he shares with wife Rebecca Romijn and 8-year-old twin daughters Charlie and Dolly.

“We have a cat that my wife refers to as her husband, and he may be the top of the food chain,” the actor, 42, tells PEOPLE. “I’m pretty low on the food chain as a lot of the cats and dogs sleep on our bed and I get the least amount of room to all of them. The cats get the most, my wife gets the second most, the dogs get the third and fourth most and I get the fifth most. I’m definitely lowest on the chain!”

And his animal family seems to be continually growing.

“Every time I go out of town, my wife just adopts another animal, be it cat or dog,” says O’Connell. “I do love them all — we’re a family.”

Being that he’s constantly around pets, it made sense for the self-proclaimed “all-around dog lover” to make an appearance at this year’s AKC National Championship Presented by Royal Canin.

“Between getting to see some of the most magnificent dogs in the world to learning about new breeds and the amazing things they can do (like agility courses and dock diving), it was truly a unique experience,” he says of being part of the show. “Plus, there is absolutely nothing cuter than seeing 20 German Shepherds walking in unison to go show themselves.”

AKC National Championship Presented by Royal Canin will premiere on Jan. 23 at 6 p.m. ET on the Hallmark Channel.

Mom Says Delta Asked Her to Leave First Class Seat Because Her 9-Month Old Baby Was Crying

Arielle Noa Charnas boarded her Delta Air Lines flight from New York City to Los Angeles with her husband and 9-month old baby in tow on Dec. 29. But before they could even take off, Charnas’ flight hit some turbulence.

Her daughter Ruby — born March 11, 2016 — was so overwhelmed she couldn’t fall asleep, Charnas explained in an Instagram post on Sunday. So, like most sleepy infants, she reacted by “screaming crying.”

The SomethingNavy fashion blogger and her husband had anticipated that Ruby might need some extra space on the six-hour flight, so they purchased first class seats so they “could lay down with her.” But even after boarding, Ruby didn’t calm down — and her fellow passengers weren’t too happy about it.

“I was getting tons of eye rolls and head shakes,” Charnas recalled. “As if I could just look at Ruby and say ‘Okay, now it’s time to stop.’”

She tried to ignore the frustrated flyers, but about 10 minutes later, a flight attendant approached her and her daughter to move to the back of the plane — as first class passengers were upset and complaining.

“Give up our seats that we paid for and move,” Charnas said. “As if the people in the back didn’t matter.”

“I started crying because I was so stressed and anxious and instead of the stewardess being helpful and compassionate, she instead made the situation worse,” Charnas continued. “I don’t know what’s right and wrong when it comes to flying with a baby but after telling a few people the story they were in shock.”

They certainly were! Charnas’s post has received over 22,000 likes on Instagram — with most of its 1,700+ commenters expressing outrage towards the Delta flight attendant and giving Charnas and her daughter support.

A Delta Air Lines spokesperson told PEOPLE, “Delta flight attendants are trained to provide safe transport and excellent customers service. We fully support all passengers traveling in the class of service for which they’ve paid.”

This is the second time Delta has found themselves in hot water in recent weeks. On Dec. 21, YouTube stars Adam Saleh and Slim Albaher ‏claim they were removed from a Delta flight traveling from London to New York City after passengers complained about them speaking Arabic. Delta Air Lines later said the internet sensations were actually removed for their “disruptive behavior.”

For what it’s worth, Charnas refused to vacate her first class seats.

“We rocked her and we walked her up and down the aisles,” Charnas told Us Weekly. “Finally during take-off, Ruby fell asleep on my shoulder and was a dream the rest of the flight.”

The family flew back to New York on Sunday. No word on how Ruby handled that flight.

RHONJ’s Melissa Gorga Temporary Closes Her Boutique Following ‘Difference of Opinion’ with Business Partner

The doors to Melissa Gorga‘s boutique have closed — but only temporarily.

Nearly a year after the Real Housewives of New Jersey star and her business partner, Jackie Beard Robinson, opened the doors to their Montclair, New Jersey boutique — Envy by Melissa Gorga — the two women are going their separate ways following a “difference of opinion.”

But although Gorga will no longer work alongside Robinson moving forward, she has taken the reins as sole business owner.

“Melissa Gorga is and has always been an owner of the Envy by Melissa Gorga boutique. Melissa and her business partner Jackie Beard Robinson have had a difference of opinion on how the store should be run and at this point Jackie is no longer involved in managing the boutique, but Melissa intends to maintain the success of the boutique by managing on it her own, and she is excited to open with a new inventory of Spring fashions,” a rep for Gorga said in a statement to PEOPLE on Wednesday about the temporary closure.

According to the boutique’s website on Wednesday, Envy by Melissa Gorga’s homepage reads, “We are remodeling our website and adding new inventory. Please check back soon!”

In January 2016, Teresa Giudice stepped out alongside her RHONJ costars to celebrate her sister-in-law’s store opening.

“This just felt like the next step, to kind of open a store,” Gorga previously told PEOPLE of opening the store after launching her HSN jewelry line last year. “It felt like the next move. It’s pretty exciting.”

Jerry Maguire Child Star Jonathan Lipnicki Reveals He Recently Got Advice from Tom Cruise: ‘He Is the Ultimate Professional’

Tom Cruise never forgets the little guys — even when they’re all grown up.

Jonathan Lipnicki, who played Renée Zellweger’s son in Cruise’s 1996 film Jerry Maguire, sat down with Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday to celebrate the film’s 20th anniversary. 

On the show, the now 26-year-old Lipnicki revealed that he recently sought Cruise’s advice on making the transition from child to adult actor.  “He gave me actually advice pretty recently like four years ago,” he revealed.

“I went over to his house because I actually — I cold-called his office at United Artists and asked for advice and, you know, he got back to me and I went over,” he explained. “A big part of his success he attributes to being on time and being polite to people and knowing people’s names and it was incredible to sit down with one of your favorite actors and have an hour-long conversation about acting,” he added.

Lipnicki said this was not the first time he heard about Cruise going out of his way for a younger co-star. Before he was cast in Jerry Maguire, another young actor had the part, and had already started filming. The other actor was forced to drop out, but Cruise made sure the kid didn’t feel like he was missing out by staying in touch throughout the production.

“Tom is so amazing that I’m really not surprised,” Lipnicki said of the story. “I heard that and I was like that’s Tom. I mean he is the best person to work with. And the fact that I got to work with him on my first movie really set a great tone for someone to look up to. He’s the ultimate professional. To this day, I see every Tom Cruise movie that comes out.”

Pucker Up! Amber Rose Calls Val Chmerkovskiy ‘My Love’ in Smoochy Snapshot

Are Amber Rose and Val Chmerkovskiy in love?

The model and the Dancing with the Stars pro might only have been dating for three months, but the model is hinting that things are getting very serious between the two.

On Wednesday evening, Rose, 33, shared a photo to Instagram of Chmerkovskiy, 30, kissing her while holding her face with the caption, “My love,” accompanied by a red heart emoji.

Rose competed on season 23 of DWTS and was paired with Val’s older brother, fellow pro dancer Maks Chmerkovskiy. At the end of October, PEOPLE reported that Chmerkovskiy and Rose were first spotted getting friendly at her birthday party. “They met through Maks and really like each other,” a source told PEOPLE. “It’s very new, but it’s going well.”

On Wednesday’s broadcast of her podcast Loveline, the mother of one opened up about her romance. “It’s amazing. It’s so good,” she shared with co-host Dr. Chris Donaghue. “It’s been four months and I love his family and everyone is great. Right now, it’s just absolutely amazing and I’m super, super happy.”

In early December, PEOPLE reported that the duo’s relationship turned official. “They’re solid and in a good place,” a second source told PEOPLE of the pair, who stepped out hand-in-hand in Los Angeles a week prior. “They’re both very happy with how things are going.”

And weeks later, Rose broke her social media fast by posting a picture of Chmerkovskiy, a.k.a. her “bae,” on social media. “When you said you were going to stay off social media until the New Year but Bae keeps posting hot ass pictures,” she captioned a headshot of the DWTS pro.

The adorable Instagram photo was posted hours after Maks and his fiancée Peta Murgatroyd welcomed their first child — son Shai Aleksander — in New York City.

“and just like that there’s a new purpose in all our lives. what a blessing,” Chmerkovskiy tweeted not long after his nephew was born.
