Taylor Swift and Lindsay Lohan were among the stars who turned out to support model Karlie Kloss as she staged a funfair-themed charity event in London this week (beg23Feb15). Kloss co-hosted the World's First Fabulous Fun Fair benefit with fellow model Natalia Vodianova at the Roundhouse venue in the British capital on Tuesday night (24Feb15), and the pair attracted a star-studded guest list.
Swift turned out to support her best friend, while other attendees included actress Lohan, pop star Ellie Goulding, DJ Calvin Harris and supermodel Eva Herzigova.
Guests were treated to candy floss, cookies and cocktails, while the event also featured a Helter Skelter ride, face-painting, magic tricks from illusionist Dynamo and performances from Clean Bandit and The Disciples.
The event raised more than $480,000 (£300,000) for the Naked Heart Foundation, an organisation which helps children with special needs.
Rapper Drake has paid tribute to Latin singer Selena Quintanilla nearly 20 years after her death. The Fancy hitmaker took to Instagram.com to post several photos of himself in the recording studio wearing a white shirt with the Mexican-American icon's face airbrushed on it.
In one of the pictures, Drake wrote the caption, "They'll be talkin' 'til I meet Selena," a line from his OVO label rapper King Louie's track Til I Meet Selena.
According to Complex magazine, the tribute shirt was created by artist Darien Bruze as part of his Fallen Angels of R&B collection, which is slated to also include TLC's Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopez and Aaliyah.
Quintanilla was murdered on 31 March, 1995 at the age of 23 by the president of her fan club.
John Travolta's spokesperson has brushed off criticism of the movie star's 'hands-on' appearance with Idina Menzel at the Oscars on Sunday (22Feb15), insisting the whole presenting segment was rehearsed like that. The Grease star returned to the Academy Awards, a year after infamously flubbing the Let It Go singer's name, calling her "Adele Dazeem" as he introduced her Frozen performance at the 2014 ceremony.
He laughed off the gaffe on Sunday by reuniting with Menzel to poke fun at his embarrassing slip-up, but the actor became the butt of jokes again after repeatedly touching and caressing the Broadway star's face during the presenting appearance.
Menzel took the touchy-feely moment in her stride and thanked Travolta for taking part after the show, tweeting, "Surprise! That was so much fun. Thank you John Travolta for being a good sport. What an honor to be invited again. #lifeisgood."
Now the actor's publicist has spoken out to defend Travolta's affectionate actions, telling People.com, "It was rehearsed in total. John Travolta loved working with Idina Menzel. John had a great time at the Oscars."
Travolta was later interviewed on the post-Oscars Jimmy Kimmel Live! TV special, during which he opened up about his 2014 slip-up, blaming a backstage run-in with Goldie Hawn for leaving him starstruck and flummoxed moments before he was due to present.
Menzel wasn't the only famous female Travolta appeared to get a little too close to at the Academy Awards - he was also snapped hugging and trying to kiss Scarlett Johansson as she posed for photographers on the red carpet.
A man has filed a police report alleging a security guard working for Justin Bieber punched him twice in the face after he tried to take a photograph of the singer. The Baby hitmaker was at FLUXX nightclub in San Diego, California on Sunday (22Feb15) when he was spotted in the V.I.P area by Steven Prince, who approached him hoping for a photo.
Prince tells TMZ.com a security guard screamed at him and began shoving him, and he has since filed a police report about the incident.
Sources tell the website's editors that the official allegedly involved did not work for Bieber and had been hired by the club's bosses.
Latin singer Marc Anthony was advised to rely on his personality in life after his father branded him "ugly". The salsa singer's high-profile relationships include two marriages to beauty queen Dayanara Torres and singer/actress Jennifer Lopez, and with his current wife, model Shannon de Lima, but he wasn't always so blessed.
In an interview with U.S. newswoman Meredith Vieira, Anthony admits he is well aware his physical features haven't always matched up with his leading ladies, saying, "My dad told me early on, 'Son, we're both ugly.' I swear to God, he says it to this day. He said you work on your personality. It builds character."
But Anthony insists the harsh reality didn't hurt his feelings, adding, "I was born looking at his face and he was right."
The 87th Academy Awards last night confirmed that Neil Patrick Harris is an incredible host and can do pretty much anything. Here's a look at the best moments of last night's show:
12. When JK Simmons won the hearts of moms around the world with his "call your parents" speech.
11. When Benedict Cumberbatch whipped out his fun flask to better enjoy the evening.

And when NPH called him out on it.

4. When Lady Gaga paid tribute to the legendary Julie Andrews and brought the house down.
It almost totally made up for her heinous gloved look.
3. When Eddie Redmayne won Best Actor and exploded with the most adorable excitement imaginable.
Even Queen Cate can't contain the joy Eddie is bringing her.
2. When Patricia Arquette turned her acceptance speech into a feminist statement (and Meryl loved it).

Rapper/actor Common had another trophy on his arm as he celebrated his big Oscars win at a Hollywood afterparty on Sunday night (22Feb15) after reuniting with his ex-girlfriend Serena Williams. The Be hitmaker claimed the Best Original Song honour for his Selma track Glory with John Legend, and he continued the celebrations at the Vanity Fair post-Oscars bash, where he was photographed sharing his gold statuette with tennis champ Williams.
The sportswoman even posetd an image of the magic moment with Instagram fans, captioning it, "Tried to run with this Common's Oscar, but I got caught!!"
The picture sparked speculation Common and Williams were giving their romance another shot, but it appears the athlete is not ready to face questions of a reconciliation as she took down the sweet snap shortly after posting it.
The couple has been dating on and off since 2007, but Common confirmed he was single last summer (14), when he admitted he was so in love with Williams, he "could've married" her.
French actress Lea Seydoux ruined her first audition for the new James Bond movie after downing a beer to steady her nerves. Seydoux is set to play Bond girl Madeleine Swann opposite Daniel Craig in his latest 007 installment, Spectre, but she almost missed out on the opportunity after fluffing her lines in front of producers at her try-out.
She tells Britain's Event magazine, "The first audition took place at a hotel in Paris. I joined the three other contenders in line. We were there to read lines from Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace... I arrived very early and I was nervous so I drank a little beer to relax myself. When it was time for my audition, my face was bright red and I forgot my lines. It wasn't a success. In fact it was a failure. That made me very sad but I asked if I could audition a second time."
Seydoux sailed through her second audition and was later given the good news over lunch in London with director Sam Mendes.
She adds, "After that (the second audition), they asked if I could meet Sam Mendes at his office in London. I think he really liked me. He said he'd think about it. I waited for a few months. Then, in April 2014, I had lunch with Sam in London. He told me I was part of the film."
Selma stars Oprah Winfrey and David Oyelowo have shrugged off their disappointment after the film lost out on the prestigious Best Picture prize at the Oscars on Sunday (22Feb15), insisting the movie will live on beyond awards season.
The civil rights drama, which focused on marches organized by activist Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was largely snubbed in the nomination shortlist and only competed for Best Picture and Best Original Song on the night.
Selma lost out on the night's top prize to Birdman, but won the music honor for John Legend and Common's track Glory, which brought many audience members, including Oyelowo and Chris Pine, to tears when it was performed at the ceremony.
Speaking at the Vanity Fair afterparty, the film's actress and producer Winfrey tells Sky News, "That (the live performance of Glory) was an amazing moment, it was the end of our journey with Selma... so now the fact they're singing our song, literally, that was an incredible moment."
Oyelowo is also convinced the film will go on to have a long life after Hollywood's award season comes to an end, telling U.K. TV show Good Morning Britain, "Films are forever, not just for awards season. That film is going to go on and have, I truly believe, a wonderful life... Embedded in that film is the fact that solidarity and camaraderie in the face of hate can truly affect change that's the spirit in which we made the film and what is now out in the world."
Sean Penn, Jennifer Aniston and Eddie Redmayne kept one of comedian Jimmy Kimmel's post-Oscars traditions going on Sunday night (22Feb15), when they appeared in a star-studded skit on his 10th annual Academy Awards TV special. Oscar winners Penn and Redmayne, Matt Damon, Jeff Bridges and Susan Sarandon were joined by Aniston, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mila Kunis and Kristen Bell, among others, in a skit titled The Kimmel School of Perfect Acting.
In the comedy sketch, Kimmel portrayed a rude, pretentious acting coach who abused his star clients.
The highlight came when Kimmel's coach threw a bottle at Redmayne for failing to convince him he was British. He also made Gary Oldman, a regular on his late-night show, act his way out of a paper bag and he also revealed that Kimmel made him take care of his laundry and "walk his piglets".
Penn had to read his lines for the fake coach as Kimmel slapped him over the head with a floating swimming pool toy.
With a straight face the Academy Award winner said, "The pool noodle is the only way I can learn."
He added, "Jim convinced me to take the role in Milk even though I'm lactose-intolerant. He had me drink a gallon of milk a day. It wasn't until I read the script that I found out there was no dairy involved... but end of story, this little guy here", holding up his Oscar statuette.
Matt Damon, who is often the butt of Kimmel's jokes, also appeared in the skit - as a chair.
He griped, "I've been in the class for two years and I've paid several thousands of dollars and he just has me play chairs and lamps."
Kimmel's pals John Krasinski and Emily Blunt split during the skit when the pretentious coach insisted they were no longer married. Krasinski threw his wedding ring on the floor as Blunt burst into tears.
Meanwhile, during Kimmel's show, Whiplash star J.K. Simmons crashed the programme with his new Best Supporting Actor Oscar and Kimmel attempted to persuade the actor to part with his statuette.
