New Adele Album On The Way?

Chris_Stokes_Blog_ADELE_25

Adele has dropped her biggest hint yet on Twitter that her forthcoming third album will be called ‘25’.

The Grammy award winner, who celebrates her 26th birthday on Monday (May 5), has previously named her albums ‘19’ and ‘21’ because of the age she was when she wrote them.

It was confirmed by her publicist back in January that Adele’s third album will be released in 2014, and she’s now suggested she’ll be continuing her trend of giving her album an age-based title and calling it ‘25’.

On Sunday night, her last night as a 25-year-old, she tweeted a photo, seemingly from her bed, writing the caption: “Bye bye 25… See you again later in the year.”

However, although she wrote her last album ‘21’ gained critical acclaim for its honest and raw songwriting about the breakdown of a relationship – as heard in singles ‘Rolling In The Deep’ and ‘Someone Like You’ – we expect ‘25’ might be a more uplifting affair, given how things have taken such a happier turn in the star’s personal life.

Since writing ‘21’, the album has topped the charts in more than 26 countries, while Adele has won an incredible eight Grammys and an Academy Award, as well as being honoured with an MBE by Prince Charles.

She’s also become a mother for the first time, giving birth to her son Angelo back in October 2012 to her partner Simon Konecki, who she’s now been with for over two years.

Charlie Sheen Tells Ashton Kutcher to “Quit Barfing” on Two and a Half Men

The tiger claws are coming out! Charlie Sheen took a jab at Ashton Kutcher — his replacement on CBS’ hit sitcom Two and a Half Men — on Monday, Jan. 6 via Twitter. “Hey Ashton,” wrote the Anger Management star. “Sorry bro all good now quit barfing on my old brilliant show.”

48-year-old Sheen continued, “Remember Punk’d? how duz it feel?” (Punk’d was a hidden-camera, prank show that aired on MTV from 2003-2012, which Kutcher, 35, created, produced and hosted.)

The unpredictable actor’s insult followed an initial tweet just one day before, where he gave a warm shout-out to his former Two and a Half Men colleague, Jon Cryer. “Hey Jon!!! u r a GENIUS!!! I effin love and MISS YOU old pal!” said the social media-happy star. His tweet was a drastic improvement from 2011, when Sheen called Cryer a “troll” and a “traitor” in an interview.

He completed his tweet Sunday with a jab at Kutcher and wrote, “Q; who’s your lame sidekick? c #NiceTryCanonBoy.” The FX star’s hashtag was in reference to Kutcher’s endorsement deal with camera company Nikon — not Canon.

Kutcher has yet to respond to the tweets.

Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Reunite?

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber can’t seem to stay away from each other. Just a few weeks after the “Heartbreaker” singer told Power 106 that he and his ex were “not talking,” the two were spotted riding Segways near Bieber’s Calabasas, Calif., home.

The exes were photographed together for the first time in months on Thursday, Jan. 2. Gomez — who recently canceled her Australian tour to “spend some time on [her]self” — donned gray leggings, a white tank, and a big black coat for the outing, while her on-again, off-again beau sported black shorts, a white T-shirt, and a baseball cap.

The 19-year-old pop star recently opened up about his relationship with the Spring Breakers actress during an interview with Power 106’s Big Boy. Asked how his song “All That Matters” came about, Bieber admitted it was inspired by his ex.

“‘All That Matters’ was written when I was in a great place in my relationship, and at that time, you know, she was all that mattered in my life,” he explained.

“I was definitely in love,” he added. “[The breakup] affected us, especially when we are in front of so many people. It’s such a public thing. It’s just hard for the both of us. But, you know, she’s a great woman. I love her to this day…I think we’re going to be the greatest friends.”

He noted, though, that they were taking a break from being in contact. “Right now, we’re taking a little time and not talking,” he told Big Boy of the 21-year-old singer, whom he dated on and off until last year.

Gomez, for her part, has said it’s been hard to close the door on her connection with the Canadian. “I’ve known him for a really long time, and we enjoy each other’s company every now and then,” she shared in August. “But I’m definitely single and enjoying being that.”

Catherine Zeta-Jones & Michael Douglas Reunited After Four Month Separation

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones stepped out in together with their two children for a cute family outing on Dec. 22. It was the first time the couple had been spotted in public after they announced their separation four months ago.

Micheal, 69, and Catherine, 44, were surprisingly photographed together on Dec. 22 with their two children, Dylan, 13 and Carys, 10. The coupled hadn’t been seen together since August.

The group had an easy day. They ate lunch at Orso in Manhattan and from there saw the Broadway musical Motown and then caught a showing of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

The actor and actress have been together since 1999. They celebrated (likely separately) their 13th wedding anniversary in November.

Earlier this year, Catherine had stated she and Michael were “taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage.” Michael, however, was hoping they’d stay together and in October told Jay Leno he’s hopeful that he and Catherine could work things out and stay together.

“I’ve been away for a while, but everything should hopefully be on the up and up,” Michael said. “Sometimes people take a little bit of a break, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that’s the end. So I’m very hopeful.”

The proud couple reportedly believes in marriage and aren’t ready to pull the plug on their marriage by divorcing one another.

“This is a separation, not a split. Not a divorce,” a source told People magazine of their situation. “They’re not giving up.”

And now it looks like that fortitude paid off!

Miley Cyrus Let’s The World Know What Kind Of Guy She’s Looking For

Three months after her confirmed split with Liam Hemsworth, the former Disney star, 21, hinted to her 15.8 million Twitter followers on Wednesday, Dec. 4 that she wanted to kick back and dress up with her significant other.

“I want a boyfriend that will wear jean on jean on jean with me,” she wrote, while sharing an image of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake circa 2001 at the American Music Awards. Although the pop couple’s relationship ended long ago, their memorable matching denim moment lives on.

Cyrus, who released her chart-topping Bangerz album in October, has previously expressed her appreciation for pop princess Spears. On Tuesday, Cyrus wished the “Perfume” crooner a “Happy album release day”; she also gushed over the new Vegas resident in her Miley: The Movement documentary. “I’ll be a diehard fan for Britney, always,” she professed.

Despite Cyrus’ recent comments that she is having the “best time ever” post-split from Hemsworth, an insider told says that she has been exchanging “flirty” texts with her former fiance. The Hunger Games actor, 23, is attempting to reconcile with his ex. “She’s confused about how she feels,” a source told says, while “[Hemsworth] is telling friends he misses her.”

The “Wrecking Ball” singer, meanwhile, explained in the December issue of Cosmopolitan that her current focus in life is music. “I need to treat my music like a relationship — give it my time and all the attention it deserves – and that’s my main love right now,” she told the mag. “This is the best time of my life. I’m not going to look back on it and be like, ‘I wish I hadn’t been dwelling over a breakup,’ you know?”

Paul Walker’s Dad Mourns Son’s Tragic Death: “I Was Proud of Him Every Day”

As tributes and memories continue to pour in for Paul Walker — who died tragically at age 40 in a car crash on Saturday, Nov. 30 — one thing is clear: The Fast and Furious actor was very, very loved. Speaking with CBS2 one day after the star’s death, his father, Paul Walker III, broke down in tears as he spoke about his son’s big heart and lasting legacy.

“I’m just glad that every time I saw him, I told him I loved him,” Walker Sr. said, choking back sobs. “And he would say the same thing to me.”

In addition to his father, Walker is survived by his mother, Cheryl Walker; his brothers, Cody and Caleb; his sister, Ashley; and his 15-year-old daughter, Meadow. He also leaves behind many grief-stricken costars and friends, some of whom gathered at the Walker family’s home this weekend.

“You can’t beat friends at a time like this,” Walker Sr. told CBS2. “His brothers are all taking it pretty hard.”

No doubt Meadow — Walkers’ daughter with an ex-girlfriend — is distraught, too. The teen lived with her mother in Hawaii for most of her life but had recently moved in with her famous dad. “[He told me], ‘I want to take a hiatus, she’s just 15, and I don’t have much more time to be with her,'” Walker Sr. recalled. “And then boom, he got another movie. He would say, ‘I don’t know what to do.'”

Just prior to his death, the actor had been co-hosting a charity event with his non-profit organization, Reach Out Worldwide, to raise money for victims affected by the typhoon in the Philippines. After attending the toy drive, he and pal Roger Rodas went for a ride in a Porsche Carrera GT. Both died when the car crashed and burst into flames.

“His heart was so big,” Walker Sr. said through his tears. “I was proud of him every day of his life.”

Fast & Furious Star Paul Walker Dies In Car Accident

Actor Paul Walker, who shot to fame as star of the high-octane street racing franchise “Fast & Furious,” died Saturday in a car crash in Southern California. He was 40.

Walker’s publicist Ame van Iden confirmed his death, but said she could not elaborate beyond statements posted on Walker’s official Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Walker was a passenger in a friend’s car and both were attending a charity event for his organization, Reach Out Worldwide, in Santa Clarita, about 30 miles north of Hollywood.

The website for the charity said the Saturday event was intended to benefit victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

The crash took place about 3:30 p.m., about 300 yards from the office park where the event was held.

The Santa Clarita Valley Signal, citing a sheriff’s deputy at the scene, said a red Porsche appeared to have lost control.

Deputies arrived at the scene to find a vehicle on fire, the sheriff’s department said in a statement.

Once fire crews put the flames out, they found two occupants, both of whom were pronounced dead at the scene.

Saturday evening, all that remained was the burnt mangled metal of the car and a light pole that had been knocked down.

Along with Vin Diesel, the 40-year-old Walker has been one of the stalwarts of the “Fast & Furious” movie series, characterized by its racing scenes and attractive cast.

The box-office success of the first film in 2001 fueled sequels. The series’ sixth installment came out earlier this year, topping the Memorial Day weekend box office.

At the time of his death, Walker was working on the seventh film of the franchise, with a scheduled release date of 2014.

On his verified Twitter account, Walker described himself as “outdoorsman, ocean addict, adrenaline junkie … and I do some acting on the side.”

Walker also is the star of “Hours,” an independent film scheduled to be released December 13 about a father struggling to keep his newborn infant alive in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

Miley Cyrus Celebrates 21st Birthday

chris_stokes_miley-cyrus-21st_bday

There might not have been any foam fingers, but Miley Cyrus’ 21st birthday weekend was still a pretty wild time. One of 2013’s most shocking stars definitely did her birthday up right and even managed to make a public appearance at the American Music Awards on Nov. 24. See pics of her bizarre performance here.

Insiders tell said that the former Disney darling’s birthday cake — which revelers noshed on during the Sunday night bash following the awards show at Beacher’s Madhouse in West Hollywood — was in the shape of a nude version of herself with pot leaves covering her privates.

A source stated that Miley seemed to be into having a great time with friends and the bash had plenty of fun favors including paper cut-outs of the singer’s face with her tongue sticking out and “I Love Miley” sunglasses.

Celebs in attendance included Kelly Osbourne, Wiz Khalifa, Amber Rose, Emma Roberts, Liam Payne and Niall Horan of One Direction, Ke$ha, and her sister Brandi Cyrus, who rocked last night’s red carpet.

For her birthday, Miley’s father, Billy Ray Cyrus, bought the singer a $24,000 customized Can-Am Spyder motorcycle with her initials all over the body.

Cyrus’ actual birthday was on Saturday, Nov. 23, but with the AMAs the following night, she seemed to keep things pretty low key before her big performance. The morning of Nov. 24, the “We Can’t Stop” singer, now officially legal, posted a seemingly naked selfie in bed followed by a series of photos of herself snuggling with her many rescue dogs.

“Crazy hair / post b-day / @amas todayyyy!,” she captioned one picture.

For the AMAs red carpet, Cyrus kept her look pretty tame in a white Versus Versace suit. But when she took to the stage to sing an emotional rendition of her hit “Wrecking Ball,” she wore a high-cut two piece covered in a cat print with massive Alexis Bittar jewelry as a giant image of a singing and eventually crying cat moved on the screen behind her.

Following the show, Cyrus snuggled up with rapper Lil Mama, who replaced Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes during TLC’s rendition of “Waterfalls.” She also cozied up to Fashion Police star Kelly Osbourne and together they went to Cyrus’ post-AMA birthday bash at Beacher’s Madhouse at The Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles.
