Paris Hilton has credited the late Dj Am for the turntable skills that have earned her another summer residency in Ibiza. The former reality TV star turned to best pal Nicole Richie's ex, Adam Goldstein, to learn what she needed to know about becoming a dancefloor diva - and the lessons paid off when she earned a residency at top club Amnesia.
She tells U.S. news show Hollywood Live Today, "DJ AM taught me and now I've been doing it professionally for about three years. It's amazing. I am playing all around the world. I play a different show in a different country every single day."
Goldstein died from an accidental drug overdose on 28 August, 2009, almost a year after he and his close pal Travis Barker survived a devastating plane crash which which killed four others in South Carolina.
U.S. TV stars Natalie Zea and Travis Schuldt have tied the knot. The actors met while co-starring in soap opera Passions in 2003 and after more than a decade together, they exchanged vows in Hawaii on Wednesday (16Jul14), a representative confirms to Us Weekly.
Zea and Schuldt wed at a private residence in front of just 18 family members, and treated their guests to a traditional 'luau' party on the beach for the reception.
Former Scrubs actor Schuldt proposed to The Following star during a vacation in Kauai, Hawaii last year (13).

A project involving Christian Bale and Leonardo DiCaprio sounds almost too good to be true. And in a way, it is.
According to Variety, Bale is currently in the final stages of signing on to work with DiCaprio in the film adaptation of Travis McGee's The Deep Blue Goodbye. DiCaprio was initially expected to star in the movie (back when we first heard about it in 2010), but now he's on the team of producers (with Appian Way) while Bale is in talks to take the lead role.
This movie has been a long time coming, but it sounds like it's finally headed for production. And while it's a bit disappointing that we won't get to see the two great stars on screen together, their names on the project—along with director James Mangold (Walk The Line, The Wolverine, and Girl, Interrupted)—give us high hopes.

"Rehearsals start today... And yes there will be a new album #SorryForTheWait." Blink-182 guitarist Tom Delonge announces he and his fellow bandmates are back in the studio to record a new album. This will be the first record since 2011's Neighborhoods, which marked their comeback after going on hiatus for four years.
Michael Jackson's estate is at the centre of a new lawsuit between the King of Pop's This Is It costume designer and his two business partners. Style guru Nestor Goco, known professionally as Zaldy, was hired to create the pop superstar's stage wardrobe for his ill-fated 2009 This Is It residency in London.
Zaldy, who has also worked with Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez and the Rolling Stones, was subsequently paid to allow his designs to be included in an ongoing world tour of Jackson memorabilia and other shows authorised by his estate executors, including the Cirque du Soleil's Michael Jackson ONE, a Las Vegas stage production inspired by his hits.
Zaldy's former associates Christopher Demers and Travis Payne claim they agreed to serve as his managers from July, 2009 to secure work with Jackson's estate in exchange for a 20 per cent cut of profits, but they are now suing amid allegations the designer has reneged on the deal.
Legal papers filed in New York County Supreme Court this week (begs30Jun14) suggest they believe the defendant earned as much as $2.4 million (£1.4 million) from Jackson-related projects since his death in June, 2009 and they are seeking at least $280,000 (£164,706) in compensation.
Rockers Coheed And Cambria have helped a female superfan save her home after pledging $3,000 (£1,875) to her crowdfunding campaign to help with her mortgage. Cyndi Crouch, who co-runs a fansite for the Welcome Home stars, recently appealed to the public for financial help via a GoFundMe.com page after falling behind on her bills.
News of her campaign was brought to the attention to Coheed and Cambria and the musicians immediately decided to hand over the money to help Crouch reach her $3,500 (£2,188) goal.
Explaining the reason for their generosity, guitarist Travis Stever tells TMZ.com, "She's a really awesome fan who is extra proactive and supports the band in everything we do."
Pop star Demi Lovato recruited her celebrity friends including rumoured boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama to star in the gay pride-themed music video for her new single Really Don't Care.
The Skyscraper hitmaker premiered the promo on Thursday (26Jun14), and it features her singing on a float during the Gay Pride Parade in California earlier this month (Jun14). Lovato and her fans along the parade route are seen singing along to the track for the cameras, while other shots show the star and her friends in a studio belting out the words.
One of the cameos is by the singer's long-time rumoured boyfriend, Valderrama, who is shown face-to-face with Lovato shortly before the two snap their heads towards the camera to belt out the chorus.
Other celebrities in the video are The Vampire Diaries' Kat Graham, Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker, celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, and British pop star Cher Lloyd, who is featured on the track.
Country music star Randy Travis is still struggling with his speech nearly a year after he suffered a stroke. The On the Other Hand singer was struck down by a debilitating stroke in July last year (13) and had psychical therapy to help restore his motor functions. Although he has made progress and can now walk with a cane, it has emerged that he is still struggling to talk.
Editors at TMZ.com report Travis has not regained his speech, almost a year later.
The singer's representative confirmed the news and added that a therapist hopes Travis will recover and make a return to the stage in the coming years.
Country music superstar Dolly Parton gave her singer pal Randy Travis a special shout out during her concert in Oklahoma on Saturday (31May14) after the stroke survivor made a rare public appearance to check out her show. Travis, 55, has been keeping a low profile in recent months after suffering a debilitating stroke last July (13), when he underwent emergency surgery and was even placed on life support for 48 hours.
He was subsequently transferred to a physical therapy facility to help him learn to walk and talk again, and he stepped out in public for the first time in February (14), when he supported his pal Neal McCoy at a gig in Dallas, Texas.
Travis ventured out again on Saturday to take in Parton's show in Thackerville, Oklahoma and the Jolene hitmaker made her appreciation to the recovering star known as she hit the stage.
She told the audience, "There are some people you just love and admire for their talents. Tonight, one of those people are here (sic). Randy Travis, wherever you are, I hope you are enjoying the show."
Travis later joined Parton and singer Janie Fricke backstage and posed for a photo.
Parton tells People.com, "It was so great to have Randy at my show. He was looking good and doing great."
