Hear that, exes everywhere? That's the sound of Gwen Stefani delivering thebest moving on anthem ever with her emotional performance of new single "Used to Love You" on Monday's Top 10 episode of The Voice.
The singer, wearing a white Grecian-inspired dress, stood atop a platform as fog swirled around her and the six floral-draped trees on the stage. The stage took on a slightly bridal vibe as images of white roses played on the video screens behind theVoice coach.
Naturally, she earned a standing ovation from her fellow coaches—including new beau Blake Shelton, whom E! News exclusively revealed the 46-year-old No Doubt frontwoman was spotted getting close with at a Halloween party.
The sales keep climbing for Adele's blockbuster 25 album.
After processing the first sales reports through Nov. 29, Nielsen Music says that 25has sold at least 650,000 copies in its second week on sale in the U.S. Combined with the 3.38 million 25 sold in its first week (Nov. 20-Nov. 26), the album has now sold more than 4 million in pure album sales. The album’s second tracking week began on Nov. 27 (the always-busy shopping day known as Black Friday).
25 is the first album to sell more than 4 million copies in a calendar year since Adele's own 21 moved 4.41 million in 2012. (In fact, the only albums to sell at least 4 million in a calendar year since 2006 have been titles by Adele. Aside from 25 in 2015 and 21 in 2012, she also did it with 21 in 2011: 5.82 million.)
There are slightly more than four days left in the sales tracking week to be tabulated (as it ends at the close of business on Thursday, Dec. 3). Some industry forecasters suggest the album could sell another million copies in its second week, making it the first album to sell a million copies in more than one week.
Billboard is scheduled to report 25's second-week sales on Sunday, Dec. 6, once Nielsen has finished processing its weekly data.
South Korean rapper PSY, who is set to release his first album since becoming an international sensation more than three years ago with the smash hit "Gangnam Style," says the pressure to live up to that success caused him to take his time with his latest project.
"There were many thoughts going around in my head, including thoughts like, 'If I write like this, it would be not as good as Gangnam Style,' and 'If I write like this, the international audience will not understand,' so it took me a very long time to organize all those thoughts into one," PSY said at a news conference in Seoul on Monday, a day before Chiljip PSY-Da debuts.
Chiljip PSY-Da -- which means This Is PSY's Seventh Album in Korean -- comes about a year and a half after the release of his single "Gentleman." It's his first album since 2012, when "Gangnam Style" swept the world with addictive music and dance moves and made PSY a global superstar.
"Gangnam Style," featured on the album PSY 6, recorded 2.46 billion views on YouTube, becoming the most viewed YouTube video ever.
The two newlyweds jetted to the private island resort Parrot Cay on the Turks and Caicos Islands for their honeymoon the past week, where they enjoyed the union of their love with breathtaking beaches and clear blue waters.
Vergara and Manganiello, who were nice enough to share a number of snapshotsfrom their special day on social media, continued the trend by posting a few photos from their beachy getaway for us to enjoy (and also be totally jealous of).
"I cannot thank @RealRobertEarl enough for the best vacation of my life!
#ParrotCay!," Manganiello wrote with a sweet selfie of himself and his new bride on Twitter. Vergara flaunted some leg in another picture she posted on Instagram that showed the actress soaking in the sun while watching her man take a dip in the water.
"They stayed in a private house. It's an extremely small tight knit community there and they chose Parrot Cay for that exact reason," a source tells E! News.
"There are only a handful of private houses. It's one of the most secluded places they could have chosen to go. It was extremely important to Joe and Sofia that they spend their first few days as man and wife in a place where they could have the utmost privacy. It's absolutely beautiful and romantic and it meant they could just enjoy one another's company."
Aside from getting bronze from the sunshine and taking in the gorgeous scenery, the couple (or Joe, at least) also spent some time trying to capture the crabs that crawled along the beaches.
"Getting selfied while trying to catch a crab on my honeymoon...
#ParrotCay @RealRobertEarl," Manganiello tweeted with a photo of Sofia taking a selfie with him in the background.
The two lovebirds got together with some of the nearest and dearest for a lavish reception in a Venetian ballroom after the A-list couple exchanged vows at The Breakers in Palm Beach, Fla., on Nov. 22.
Crystal chandeliers and huge arrangements of fuchsia flowers hung from the ceiling. Yellow linens covered the dinner tables and vines of white roses were also seen. The couple's first dance was to Frank Sinatra's 1964 cover of "The Way You Look Tonight," and music from Michael Jackson and Shakira was also heard during the celebration.
About 400 people celebrated with the couple, including celebs such as Channing Tatum, Arnold Schwarzeneggerand Reese Witherspoon. Modern Family co-stars including Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Ed O'Neill, Sarah Hyland, Ty Burell and Julie Bowen were also able to celebrate the big day.
The time has finally come to hear one of music's biggest collaborations come to life.
Described as a gospel-infused party jam, the single first premiered on Annie Mac's BBC show in London Monday morning to the delight of many music fans. The track is expected to appear on Coldplay's new album out this Friday.
As for how the collaboration came about, the story is quite impressive.
Sources tell us the couple's discussed dozens of names, but they're just not in love with anything they've come up with so far.
Might seem weird for a prolific producer like Kanye to have writer's block, but we're told the struggle is coming up with something unique -- and as we first reported, directions are off the table. Also, it's their first son ... which means a lot to both of them.
Our sources say Kim's worried it could come down to them just getting inspired once the little guy arrives. He's due on Christmas day, but we're told mom feels like he's coming early.
All the haters calling out Kylie Jenner for animal cruelty are barking up the wrong tree ... this according to no less an authority than the Italian Greyhound Club of America.
Experts with the club tell us the video Kylie posted of one of her pups is perfectly normal for the breed ... despite the flood of people accusing her of being a crappy pet owner.
A spokesperson for the Club says the pups are supposed to be lean, since they're bred for running -- and, in fact, a healthy Italian greyhound should show a hint of 3 ribs and its hip bones.
The IGCA rep also points out the still photo from Kylie's video could be misleading ... since the dog could be taking a big breath which would exaggerate the rib cage.
Who knew workout clothes could look so sexy?
Jessica Simpson showed off her impressive figure today when revealing the launch of her new campaign, The Warm Up, an active wear line added to her Jessica Simpson collection. Her latest business venture is described as "a true performance collection but a balance of fashion and function," and includes a variety of pieces for the woman who puts in work when it comes to her fitness.
The Warm Up, which is available in Macy's, includes leggings, sports bras, track jackets and more, all made with Extraordin-Air fabric that allows softness and breathability, and retail between $24 and $49.
"Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important to me, and fitness has been a priority in my life since having my kids," Simpson said. "Everything we do in the line comes from an organic place. It's exiting to be sharing a true performance line—it's a blend of great active features, technology and fashion."
Gavin Rossdale went out on the town during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
The "Love Remains the Same" singer and ex-husband of Gwen Stefani stepped out Saturday night, partying at Hyde nightclub in West Hollywood unexpectedly alongside none other than fellow '90s film queen Tara Reid
According to an eyewitness, Rossdale was "not with Reid." Instead, "they both just happened to be in the same place at the same time."
However, it appears the 50-year-old British singer potentially has his eye on a different golden-haired beauty.
"Gavin was with [a] mystery blonde inside the club. They held hands and it was apparent they were together—at least for the night," an eyewitness told E! News. "Gavin was partying with a group of friends, but kept close to the blonde. The blonde and Gavin left the club together."
The father of three was seen leaving in a car with the unidentified woman, who was photographed sporting a grey asymmetrical coat and lace-up black booties while holding a cigarette.
The Bush frontman was rocking his own hip getup, complete with shiny denim pants, two layered jackets and grey kicks. One particular accessory—his wedding band—was spotted still wrapped around his left hand ring finger, despite the fact that his former wife of 13 years filed for divorce nearly four months ago in August.
Shot this year by acclaimed American photographer Annie Leibovitz, the storied calendar, which has reached its 43rd edition since its debut in 1964, has taken a noticeable turn from its roots as a high-fashion nude pictorial to something far more demure.
"For 2016, we did something completely different, but it is still simple," Leibovitz said in a press release. "It is a classic set of black-and-white portraits made in the studio."
In one photograph, 34-year-old Schumer looked caught off-guard as she posed sitting on a stool in a pair of lace underwear, strappy nude heels and nothing else as she holds a cup of coffee in the air. In a refreshingly noticeable lack of photoshopping, the actress' midsection escaped un-retouched.
"I'm a great admirer of comediennes," Leibovitz shared. "The Amy Schumer portrait added some fun. It's as if she didn't get the memo saying that she could keep her clothes on."
The Inside Amy Schumer creator shared an equal appreciation for the photographer's work by tweeting, "Beautiful, gross, strong, thin, fat, pretty, ugly, sexy, disgusting, flawless, woman. Thank you @annieleibovitz."

RadarOnline quotes one of Charlie Sheen's madams as saying that he may have infected as many as 20 escorts with HIV. “I would just like everybody to know that he lied! He did not tell any of his partners! There are a lot of people that I unknowingly put in harms way—he let me do it. He’s ruined lives as a result. I think somebody just needs to—even anonymously—go on record and say ‘. He didn’t tell me, and he put me at serious legal liability in doing what he did. He could have privately called and told the partners that he had HIV or he could have told me at some point and given me the opportunity to make an educated decision from a point of full disclosure as to whether or not I wanted to do business with him! Anyone that he did something stupid with, he would send to his doctor!”
Naughty Gossip claims Jonah Hill hands out business cards when he meets fans on the street. The site claims the cards say: “I just met Jonah Hill. It was a total letdown”
A source tells the site: “Jonah actually had these printed up and always is carrying a bunch of them in his pocket. He thinks he is so clever and brilliant. Who goes to all the trouble? It would be easier to just sign something or take a quick picture. He needs to chill out. He thinks he is very important.”
