Jennifer Lopez Says Ben Affleck Was Her "First Big Heartbreak"

When Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were together, they practically invented the concept of one-named celebrity couples:  Bennifer, remember?  J-Lo is now revealing that when they called off their engagement, it was her "first big heartbreak." In an interview with Maria Shriver that will air on NBC's Today on November 3 and November 4, Jennifer talks about how she didn't give herself any alone time after the split, which was probably a mistake. Shriver says, "Right away when you broke up with Ben Affleck, Marc Anthony was there like 2 days later," to which Jennifer responds, "Right, you're absolutely right."…

Taylor Swift Collaborator Admits She Assumed Taylor Didn't Write Her Music & Was "Puppeteered" by Old Men

It takes a big man -- or woman -- to admit publicly that you're wrong, but that's just what British singer-songwriter Imogen Heap has done, in regards to her new friend Taylor Swift. Imogen co-wrote the song "Clean" on Taylor Swift's new album 1989, and in a blog posting, she reveals that before she met her, she just assumed Taylor had no creative control over her own music or career.  "I have to be honest here and say that I ever so slightly had not done my homework on Taylor Swift but had done what I HATE others do of…

Ed Sheeran Is Austin Powers for Halloween

Yeah, baby!  That's what Ed Sheeran tweeted on Friday while linking to a photo of himself in his Halloween costume.  Yes, you guessed it: he was Austin Powers, the swingin' sixties spy portrayed by Mike Myers onscreen. Ed's costume was spot on: he was wearing glasses with thick black frames, a crushed blue velvet jacket and a shirt with frills on the neck and sleeves. Since Austin Powers' hair was sort of red anyway, the singer didn't even have to wear a wig. Unfortunately, Ed's fans won't be seeing him wearing the outfit onstage: he tweeted, "I should wear the…

Lorde on "Hunger Games" Soundtrack: "It Felt It Would Be Cool for My Career"

Rather than simply contributing a track to the soundtrack of the new Hunger Games film, Lorde was put in charge of assembling the project.  The singer, who'll turn 18 on November 7, says taking on such a big responsibility felt like something she needed to do at this stage of the game. "I knew this was right for me as an artist and I felt it would be cool for my career," Lorde tells Billboard for her new cover story.  "People that see me as having a couple of hits and performing on an awards show would see that, between…

Katy Perry fans know that the singer's preferred snack food is Flamin' Hot Cheetos.  In fact, she loves them so much, she dressed as one for Halloween.

Adam Levine: Blake & I Won't Leave "The Voice" 'Cause We're "Greedy"

While the coach lineup on The Voice has changed numerous times since the show debuted, one thing has remained the same: the dynamic duo of Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, whose "bromance" has been charming viewers for seven seasons now.  But Adam says there's a good reason that he and Blake haven't taken a season off from the show as other coaches have done: money. Speaking about Christina Aguilera's impending return to The Voice, Adam tells the TV show Extra, "I'm so excited she's coming back. She’s kind of like that anchor to the original crew, which I love. The…

Gavin DeGraw Recalls Halloween Costume that Traumatized Him at Age Five

He's 37 years old, but Gavin DeGraw says he's still haunted by the memories of a Halloween costume he was made to wear at the tender age of five. "I don't think I've ever had a really cool Halloween costume," he tells ABC News Radio. "In kindergarten, my mother dressed me up as a sailor, and that was the early days of the button fly, before that was cool. And I remember hearing the 'I see London, I see France' song. I was five years old, and I'll never forget that -- so, no more sailor outfits for me." OK,…
