American Idol says goodbye to its last original judge…Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez bury the hatchet…Rihanna sues Topshop. Kellie’s got the scoop in today’s Showbiz Top 5!
SPOILER ALERT: If you sat through two hours of some pretty decent performances (some, not so much) and some pretty funny sketches (some, not so much) you got to see Candice Glover named this year’s winner of “American Idol.” We also said goodbye to Randy Jackson, the last remaining of the original judging panel. But perhaps to dispel rumors that Randy was fired, he said that producers wanted him to know that the door is always open if he wants to come back…and play bass in the house band. (I added that last part.)
German officials say Justin Bieber needs to write them a check whether he wants his monkey back or not. Back in March, Justin tried to bring his Capuchin monkey Mally into the country with him, but customs officials said, “Nein!!” (I looked up “no in the English to German translator thingie.) So they’d keep the monkey until he finished up business, and he could pick Mally up on his way back to the US. But Justin doesn’t want his monkey! His management cream contacted the Germans and said, “Put Mally in the zoo!!” How heartless! Munich’s customs office says they’ll be happy to do that, but Justin still has to pay for all the care, food and vet visits for Mally, which they say adds up to a few thousand dollars.
Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez used to be BFFs, but three years ago, their relationship fell apart. What happened? Typical high school stuff. Selena started getting chummy with Taylor Swift, which caused Demi to get closer with Miley Cyrus and then later diss Selena in the press. Taylor Lautner also became a bit of a problem. He dated both Selena and Taylor, but what about Demi? She wanted a piece of that werewolf, too! But time has a way of healing things — or making people forget. And Demi told MTV News that life is too short. She says the two of them don’t talk every day, but they’re back to being friends again. And that’s a good thing.
Rihanna is suing Topshop for $5 million dollars after they slapped her face all over a bunch of t-shirts without getting her permission first. For eight months, Rihanna’s team negotiated with Topshop, who reportedly only wanted to write her a check for $5000. Rihanna’s people said no way, but Topshop did it anyway. And even though she’s already spent about a million dollars in legal fees, Rihanna is continuing with her lawsuit. A source says that for her, it’s the principle of the thing.
Lindsay Lohan’s worst fear has been realized!! She has gained FIVE POUNDS!!!! When Lindsay checked into Betty Ford, they told her she couldn’t take her Adderall. Lindsay kicked and screamed that she needed it for her ADD and said she couldn’t function without it. But a source says that the truth is, Lindsay uses Adderall to keep her weight down. She was terrified that she’d start gaining weight if she didn’t have her pills, and after only a couple of weeks, she’s put on five pounds. A source told RadarOnline.com that she’s been very emotional and is using food for comfort. And even though she’s been exercising, she’s not breaking much of a sweat. Without the Adderall, Lindsay’s lost her energy, too. At this point, she’s just hoping she’ll be able to zip her pants when her 90 days is up.
