WILL KIM AND KANYE SAY "I DO" THIS WEEK....DOES ANYONE CARE?

Even though Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are scheduled to have a lavish wedding in Paris next month, the two of them will probably get married sometime this week. 

According to TMZ, KimYe recently picked up a confidential marriage license. That way, they won’t be required to show up to the courthouse to get married. Instead, a court official will marry them at their house. 

While there was no reason given for the situation, we told you that French law requires that anyone who gets married in their country be a resident for at least 40 days. 

IS GWYNETH CURSED?

Gwyneth Paltrow is understandably stressed, but is she cursed? Since her "unconscious uncoupling" announcement, things seem to have taken a turn for the worse.

"Gwyneth told friends she feels cursed, everything seems to be going wrong since she and Chris announced their split," an insider told Britain's "Closer" magazine. First, she had a run in with her alleged stalker, Nickolaos Gavrillis. Then, word of her website, Goop, losing money surfaced. It probably didn't help CEO Seb Bishop announced he was leaving. "She desperately wants to inspire people with Goop, but she fears people think she's out of touch. The company has mounting debts and she's even considered admitting defeat and moving on," and insider added.

And even if she wanted to get out there and meet a new gentleman, it'd be a challenge considering she and Chris Martin are sort of still living together. "Chris is staying in a flat in the grounds of their LA home, and Gwyneth is worried about dating while he's so close," the insider explained. "She's also nervous that she will feel lonely when Chris eventually moves out."

PRINCE HARRY IS SINGLE AGAIN

Ladies, there's still a chance of being a princess! "People" magazine is reporting Prince Harry and girlfriend Cressida Bonas have split. The couple have been together for nearly two years, but a source close to the prince told the mag "he found her too need and it just wasn't working out."It wasn't until recently the two were seen in public together, attending their first official event together just last month.

The timing of this split could not have been more perfect for Fox. The network is gearing up to launch the show "I Wanna Marry 'Harry,'" where they dupe 12 American women into believing they're competing for a chance to marry Prince Harry by using a pretty passable lookalike. The show premieres on May 27th.

The real Prince will in fact be stateside this weekend, however. Both Harry and William are attending one of their oldest friends, nightclub promoter and royal stag weekend planner Guy Pelly's wedding in Memphis, according to "The Daily Beast." Single ladies with the dream of becoming Kate Middleton's sister in law, book your tickets now. 

CAMERON DIAZ HAS BEEN "WITH A LADY"

Cameron Diaz did more than kiss a girl, but did she like it? The actress talked about her love of the ladies in the UK verison of "Glamour" this month, and when she stopped by "Watch What Happens Live," Andy Cohen asked what we all wanted to know. 

"Have you, yourself, ever swam in the lady pond?" Cohen asked. After some clafication as to what that oddly worded question meant, Diaz said she has in fact been with a woman. "Yes, I have been with a lady. Yeah," Diaz said. The TV host then asked, "More than once?" "You didn't ask explicitly how I was with a lady," Diaz responded, "but I have been with a lady."

Diaz gave no further details about the hookup.

RIHANNA LIKES TO BE NAKED

Rihanna is dropping jaws with her latest magazine cover.  While the pop star has had no problem with shedding her clothes for the camera in the past, she's managed to outdo even herself on the new cover of French magazine "Lui." 

Rihanna appears completely topless in the not-safe-for-work photo.  She's seated on a chair and leaves barely anything to the imagination, wearing nothing but pink shorts and a hat.  The high fashion shoot was photographed by the famed Mario Sorrenti, and Rihanna seems happy with how it turned out. 

She's even changed her Twitter icon to one of the nude shots of herself. Classy.

ED SHEERAN RIPS THE BACKSTREET BOYS

Ed Sheeran may be a very nice guy, but he's also a very "fer reals" guy. Maybe that's why some of us weren't shocked to hear that he's  slamming the Backstreet Boys for playing new music at their reunion shows. What gives? Sheeran - an admitted fan of the group - thinks BSB are letting fans down with unrecognizable tunes on their set list.

"I study how other people perform and that is unacceptable, as the Backstreet Boys have so many hits,' he tells the UK newspaper "The Sun." He goes on to say that he's particularly ticked that Backstreet's Brian Littrell played an acoustic set to open the band's show. "No mate - do that if you have your own gig, Brian. I played the Royal Albert Hall and did two new songs, but I know that's what people want," he offers. "The Backstreet Boys, what are they doing? Play your hits."

The singer says there are few cases where that might be acceptable. But Brian and his bandmates A,J. McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter and Kevin Richardson don't fall into that prestigious category. "If you're a proper muso and people go to your gigs to witness your musicianship, à la Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan, do it," he allowed. "But if you're a pop star play your pop songs."  Who is he cheering? Sheeran gives props toJustin Timberlake and Sir Paul McCartney for being masterful at pleasing fans.

"I love the Backstreet Boys," says Sheeran. "I would not want to go to a gig and not hear all the hits, that would really annoy me. Like when I saw Justin Timberlake, it was one of the best shows I ever watched as it was back-to-back hits, people need to do that much more. I went to see Paul McCartney and I knew every song, hit after hit."

STAR WARS CAST REVEALED

It looks like the force is with us. The cast list for "Star Wars: Episode VII" has been released and it's mixing some new actors with the classics from the franchise.   

John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join original starsHarrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the next installment of the "Star Wars" franchise.

The details of this movie have been kept pretty tightly under wraps, but Disney chief Bob Iger had said previously that episode seven will take place 30 years after 1983's "Return of the Jedi."  The movie is expected to hit theaters December 18th, 2015.
