One Direction star Harry Styles made a fan's dream come true when he jokingly proposed to her during a concert in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Wednesday (13Aug14). The young girl, named Priya, arrived at the gig wearing a wedding dress and her unusual choice of clothing caught the attention of the pop star, who asked her, "Priya, will you marry me?"
Canadian actor Patrick J. Adams turned wedding officiant on Sunday (10Aug14) to preside over the nuptials of two close friends. The Suits star, who is an ordained minister, reveals he combined his love of photography with his role in the Los Angeles ceremony to capture the special moment in a unique way, using a special Widelux camera, which takes full panoramic shots on film.
He says, "I actually married two friends of mine this weekend and, because I'm a photographer, I'm usually the guy who's running around the outside of weddings, so I begged them to let me start the wedding by taking a picture of the perspective of being the person marrying them."
Adams, who is engaged to Pretty Little Liars actress Troian Bellisario, isn't the first star to preside over a wedding - Sir Ian McKellen, Lady Gaga, Ian Somerhalder, Emma Stone and Jason Segel are just some of the other celebrities who are qualified to marry couples, while Jonah Hill recently helped childhood pal Adam Levine wed his model fiancee Behati Prinsloo.
Sir Ian Mckellen helped South African director Brett Best propose to his boyfriend in a YouTube.com video.
Best originally wanted McKellen's good friend Patrick Stewart to film the part but The Lord of the Rings actor stepped in when Stewart became unavailable.
In the clip, he talks to the camera while holding a clapperboard that reads "Will you marry me?"
Olivia Wilde has been pictured breastfeeding her baby son as part of a high fashion magazine photoshoot. The Tron: Legacy star is seen wearing a sparkling designer gown and towering high-heeled shoes as she nurses four-month-old Otis, her first child with fiance Jason Sudeikis.
Wilde hopes posing for the intimate shot for America's Glamour magazine will empower other new mothers, saying, "Being shot with Otis is so perfect because any portrait of me right now isn't complete without my identity as a mother being a part of that. Breastfeeding is the most natural thing... It feels like Otis should always be on my breast. It felt like we were capturing that multifaceted woman we've been discussing - that we know we can be. You can be someone who is at once maternal and professional and sexy and self-possessed. I mean, I certainly don't really look like that when I'm (usually) breastfeeding."
She adds of her wedding plans, "We're engaged, but no specific plans yet. We just have to find the time to put it together. In many ways, a child is more of a commitment. We are fully committed and really happy as a family... I don't feel any pressure to do it (marry). But I think it will be really fun."
British Olympic diver Tom Daley has topped gay magazine Attitude's Hot 100 Sexiest Men list for the second consecutive year, seven months after 'coming out' as a homosexual. The 20-year-old sportsman, who is dating Hollywood screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, was unveiled as the publication's new cover star at its annual summer party in London on Wednesday (16Jul14).
Daley beats former The X Factor U.K. winner Shayne Ward to claim the title, while acting hunk Zac Efron places third, just ahead of soccer stud David Beckham and British reality star Dan Osborne in fourth and fifth place, respectively.
Andrew Fraser, Attitude's Deputy Editor, says, "It's been a big year for Tom Daley. When he made his very moving and personal video last year, where he revealed his relationship with Dustin Lance Black, he not only changed his own life, but will have helped change the lives of countless other young gay people who are starved of role models in the world of film, TV and sport."
In the accompanying interview, Daley admits he would like to pursue a career as a TV presenter once he retires from diving, and opens up about settling down in the near future, saying, "Family is something that has always been really important to me and yes, at some point I would love to marry and have kids."
Newlywed pop star Cher Lloyd is already planning to start a family with her husband Craig Monk. The British singer, 20, married hair stylist Monk in a secret ceremony in November (13), less than three years after they first met in the salon where he worked.
The Want U Back hitmaker has now revealed she is loving life as a doting wife and is already planning to have children.
She tells British magazine Fabulous, "I love being married. I love being a wife. People think I'm young because I'm just 20, but where I come from it's normal to get married at 16... I'm actually very old-fashioned. Craig had to ask my dad permission to marry me. Every day I have his tea (dinner) on the table and I want kids very soon."
"I will marry Donnie in the next few weeks... Although I haven't told my dad yet, my son, Evan, will walk me down the aisle before he goes back to school in the fall (autumn)." Jenny Mccarthy is planning to end the summer by becoming Mrs. Donnie Wahlberg.
Much like "Summertime Sadness" last summer and "Call Me Maybe" the summer before that, Canadian band Magic! has created this year's summer chart topper in the form of the omnipresent "Rude." You'll hear it just about every other song on the radio, and it looks like it's starting to grate on some people. "Some people" meaning the collectively highly decorated Lena Dunham and Ingrid Michaelson, who took to Twitter to poke some light fun at the song:
@lenadunham He's gonna marry her anyway.
— Ingrid Michaelson (@ingridmusic) July 14, 2014
Now with a comedic rapport like that, we should all be signing petitions for Michaelson to make an appearance on season 4 of Girls!
Singer La Toya Jackson almost botched her business manager's attempt to whisk her away to Hawaii for a marriage proposal last year (13), because she was not interested in taking a vacation. Michael Jackson's 58-year-old sister became engaged to Jeffre Phillips last August (13), but she only went public with the news in June (14).
Now the bride-to-be admits it took a little extra persuading from her father Joe Jackson, who had granted Phillips' request for her hand in marriage, for her to jet off on a two-day holiday with her beau.
She explains, "Before he proposed to me... he went to (Las) Vegas and he asked my father for my hand (in marriage). It was great.
"Right after that, I had dinner with my father and my father was desperately trying to tell me that Jeffre has a surprise in Hawaii, that, 'You need to go to Hawaii'. I didn't wanna go to Hawaii, I wanted to go to New York to do the play that I was getting ready to do (Off Broadway show Newsical the Musical). I had two days to rehearse... and Jeffre kept convincing me, 'Toya, you need two days off, you need downtime.'"
She finally agreed and she was blown away one night when Phillips transformed their luxury hotel suite into an all-white affair with flowers everywhere as they sat down for a lavish six-course dinner.
She recalls, "I go, 'Oh my God, what is this?' And he goes, 'We're having dinner, (a) special dinner.'"
She continues, "When it got to dessert... he gets on his knee and he asks, he says... 'Toy, will you marry me?' I got so nervous... He said, 'I didn't get you a ring.' I said, 'Don't even worry about that, that's not important' and then I get my dessert, I lift the dome (cover) up and there's the ring in the dome."
However, Jackson admits she has already suffered from cold feet over the nuptials.
She adds, "Your friends get so excited for you and they were just pushing me and rushing me (into wedding planning)... and I started getting really nervous, I started thinking, 'Wow, this is really real...' I got a little bit of cold feet."
The star was previously married to her manager Jack Gordon for seven years before they divorced in 1997. She alleged he had been abusive throughout the union.
Actress Pamela Anderson penned a poem about splitting from husband Rick Salomon for a second time, confessing she knew it was "wrong from the start".
The former Baywatch beauty wed the film producer and poker professional in 2007, but the couple had the union annulled two months later. They called it quits yet again last week (03Jul14), when Anderson filed legal papers to end their marriage after just six months.
Now the actress has opened up about the split by sharing an emotional 1,200-word poem on her Facebook.com page. Although she never mentions him by name, she appears to question her decision to remarry Salomon, writing, "What have I done...? I knew it was wrong from the start - primitive - base instinct.. Never marry a rich man... A mirrored action. obsessive love... unhealthy, hopeless- knocked sideways"
Anderson, 47, continues to reflect on the broken relationship, admitting that she fell for the idealistic marriage she had hoped they would have, confessing, "I love being in love - but expectations, make it impossible to be happy- or satisfied... I've tried... so hard.. maybe it's not in fashion- Tradition...just seemed so romantic... I guess it's a used up ideal - or the old fashion... not modern... No man knows what to do with me- I blame myself"
"Against my better judgement- fell for it- dammit- it all backfired- It doesn't feel good to be used, neglected, ignored - controlled.... I'm not doing this- It's humiliating - I have to turn this around".
Anderson was also previously married to rockers Tommy Lee and Kid Rock, while Salomon became infamous for co-starring in Paris Hilton's sex tape, One Night in Paris.
