    • James Corden: I'd Love to Bring Carpool Karaoke to High Wycombe

      James Corden would "love" to bring 'Carpool Karaoke' to his home town of High Wycombe in England.

      The 38-year-old TV star has turned the segment on 'The Late Late Show', in which he shares a car journey with a well known musician, into an internet sensation and James has now revealed he'd love to bring the concept to the town in which he was born.

      James said their route could take in the local villages of Micklefield, Loudwater and then Totteridge, adding: "Then we'd probably go up Amersham Hill ... through Hazlemere, through the crossroads, down, up to Holmer Green and then maybe you could carry on to Amersham. But that's a different town and I don't want to step on any toes.

      "But yes, a 100 per cent. We'd stop in the Corn Market for a McDonald's."

      James also admitted that because of the show's intense nature, a new idea can often come to fruition in a matter of hours.

      He told the Bucks Free Press newspaper: "If we have an idea, we do it that night. We do like 300 shows a year or something crazy. We're always working on stuff."

      Earlier this month, James admitted to being surprised by the success of 'Carpool Karaoke', and then revealed his intention to bring it to the UK.

      He previously said: "It's taken us all by surprise, the success, especially of that particular segment.

      "But we do have some stuff planned this year - which might involve being in the UK."

      James said there are no concrete plans in place at the moment, but he would love to realise his ambition.

      He explained: "We're talking about it now, really. We don't know if we'll be able to get it together but it's certainly something I'd love to do, for sure."

    • Beyonce FaceTimes Cancer Patient

      Beyoncé has fulfilled a young cancer patient's last wish by FaceTiming her.

      The 35-year-old singer surprised teenager Ebony Banks, who has been battling with a rare form of the disease, with a video call on Wednesday (03.22.17), because it has always been her lifelong dream to meet her "idol".

      Speaking to KHOU about her last wish, Ebony - who is also known as Ebob - said: "She's [Beyoncé] like my everything and my idol. And if I ever met her, I would probably pass out."

      The powerhouse singer - who has five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy with her husband Jay Z and is pregnant with twins - learnt about Ebony's dream to meet her through her school friends, who started up a campaign on social media with the hashtag #EbobmeetsBeyoncé in a bid to get Beyoncé's "attention" and make their classmate's dreams come true.

      Speaking about the plan, one of Ebony's friends from Alief Hastings High School, Karina Gutierrez, told KTRK-TV: "Beyoncé is one of her idols. She admires her so much, so we're trying to put that on Twitter and Instagram to get Beyoncé's attention."

      And another pal, Cristal Depaz, has vowed to do all she can to ensure Ebony is happy, despite her illness.

      She explained: "We try to make sure she has a smile on her face and to make her wishes come true."

      A video of the former Destiny's Child band member conversing with Ebony has since been shared on social media, which sees the vocalist wave and smile at her fan before declaring her love to her.

      In the clip, which has gone viral, Beyoncé said: "I love you."

      And the 'Dreamgirls' actress' response to the efforts stunned Ebony and her friends who put the plan into action.

      Shayna McKnight said: "It was like, wow, it really happened. We actually got her attention."

    • Sharon Osbourne Returns to The Talk

      Sharon Osbourne has returned to 'The Talk' after undergoing back surgery two weeks ago.

      The 64-year-old TV star suffered a debilitating back injury six weeks ago when she playing at home with her granddaughters and although she initially thought little of the pain, the injury gradually worsened.

      Speaking on her return to the program on Wednesday (03.22.17), she said: "I was on the floor with them playing with toys and I got up. As I got up from the floor, my back - I just felt this twist in my back at the base of my spine.

      "I didn't think anything of it and then that night it was really, really hurting, And I thought it was because I put weight on again, because when I put weight on, I get back pain. And I'm like, 'Ah, I've got to go on a diet!' And then the next day I couldn't walk.

      "What had happened was I had done my L3 and L4 disks damage and the L3 had kind of mushed up, but it had entangled around a nerve. So it was pressing on this nerve on my back that affected my legs. I couldn't walk properly."

      Doctors were initially reluctant to see Sharon undergo surgery, but they decided it was the best course of action after an epidural failed to ease her suffering.

      Sharon explained on the US talk show: "They tried to do it with an epidural to ease the pain - that didn't do any good, so I had to go in and have surgery. And I've been in bed doing nothing. My life has just been like nothing."

      But Sharon is relieved she has now finally returned to work following her recent health woes.

      She told the audience: "This is the best medicine I could ever have."

    • Debbie Reynolds' Final Wish

      Debbie Reynolds told her son she wanted to "be with Carrie" in the moments before she passed away.

      Todd Fisher - who lost his mother Debbie and sister Carrie Fisher within days of each other in December 2016 - felt his mother was preparing him for her passing.

      He recalled: "My mother said, 'I know that's tough. It might be tougher even, you know ... I don't know for sure when I [will] go.' I was like, 'Well, look, fortunately we don't have to face that right now, you know, we just face this.' But then she was like asking my permission [to go]. I [said], 'You're going to be OK, everything is under control.'

      "And she starts running me back through her estate, which we had done many times. [She's like], 'You're going to take my dog and, you know, all these little instructions.' And [she] even [went through] last-minute changes due to the fact that Carrie left first, as far as the memorial service.

      "I thought that we were just going through these events just like one would go back through an estate. But instead the next morning, we had a little further dialogue and she chose to leave the planet in front of my face two feet away ... She literally looked at me and said, 'I want to go be with Carrie' and closed her eyes and went to sleep."

      Todd was very close to the 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' actress - who died after suffering a cardiac arrest - and has a particularly fond memory of when he took his first steps holding onto Carrie's hand.

      He added to Entertainment Tonight: "My mother said to me the night that Carrie died ... we were talking that night and I didn't know what was happening, but she was setting me up for her leaving the planet.

      "And she really just said to me, 'You know, I know that was really hard on you losing your sister.' [And I said], 'I mean, Carrie was there holding my hand when I took my first steps. I have film of that and it will be in the memorial.' And when I was editing that, it ripped my heart out."

    • Selena Gomez Bullied at the Disney Channel

      Selena Gomez was bullied during her time at the Disney Channel.

      The 'Heart Wants What It Wants' hitmaker started her career at the television network and has branded it "the biggest high school in the world".

      She said: "I think he understood that I knew what it meant to be bullied. I went to the biggest high school in the world, which is the Disney Channel. And my mom had a lot of history dealing with [bullying]. I heard her stories growing up. She's very open about it."

      Whilst her mother Mandy added: "When I was growing up, I was always bullied because I was the outsider, the weird girl with the purple hair and combat boots. Then I was a teen mom. You get really judged. I had counselors telling me how I'd ruined my life, [Selena's] life and how I ruined the father's life, even though he participated."

      And the 24-year-old actress and singer admits social media has changed a lot since she first became famous and confesses to deleting Instagram from her phone "at least once a week" as she hates the negative comments posted on the photo sharing app.

      In a joint interview with her mother Mandy for the New York Times newspaper, she added: "When I was on 'Wizards of Waverly Place', we didn't have social media really. Twitter had just begun. Every Friday, I'd get to do a live taping in front of all these little kids and make their life. That's when I was the happiest. Then, as I got older, I watched it go from zero to a hundred. So I'm actually glad it took us this long to create this project because it's so relevant now ...

      "You can't avoid [reading the comments] sometimes. I delete the app from my phone at least once a week. You fixate on the [negative] ones. They're not like, 'You're ugly.' It's like they want to cut to your soul. Imagine all the insecurities that you already feel about yourself and having someone write a paragraph pointing out every little thing - even if it's just physical."

    • Kim Kardashian West Blasted Kanye After Paris Robbery

      Kim Kardashian West called Kanye West an "a**hole" for scaring her in the aftermath of her Paris robbery.

      The 36-year-old beauty - who was robbed at gunpoint in the French capital in October last year - revealed she suffered a flashback to her traumatic experience in Paris when her chart-topping husband inadvertently startled her when he arrived home late from a gig.

      In a conversation with Kris Jenner and her sister Kourtney, Kim explained: "I totally freaked out.

      "He always comes up the back stairs. Like, I always know he comes out the stairs that go into my room. But he came up the front stairs, and all I heard were his feet stomping up stairs."

      Kim admitted the incident shared similarities with the robbery in Paris, when she was bound and gagged by a group of thieves.

      In a new clip from 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians', Kim recalled: "Like, at three in the morning, he came in, and that's the same time the robbery happened. After a concert, he can't hear that well, so I'm going, 'Hello, hello!' Like, exactly what I did [during the robbery], and he's not responding to me because he can't hear me."

      Kim started crying and grabbed their three-year-old daughter North West just as Kanye walked through the door.

      The curvaceous star said: "He walks in, and I'm like, 'Hello, a**hole.' [I'm] like, 'We've got to come up with a plan. You've got to announce yourself.'"

      Kim's confession comes shortly after Kris admitted the Kardashians have increased their security after Kendall Jenner recently had thousands of pounds of jewellery stolen from her home.

      The showbiz matriarch revealed that herself and her children - including Kim, Kourtney, Khloe Kardashian, Rob Kardashian, Kendall and Kylie Jenner - are "protected to a crazy level" now in the wake of the burglary.

      Kris said: "It's an eye-opener how many people have tried to access our homes. [Now] we're protected to a crazy level."

    • Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie on Talking Terms

      Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are reportedly on speaking terms again.

      The 41-year-old actress filed for divorce from her hunky spouse in September last year after a row broke out between him and their 15-year-old son Maddox but, although the former couple have been communicating via lawyers for the past six months, it looks like the pair are slowly but surely making amends as they're speaking directly now.

      A source told People magazine: "He's [Brad's] much happier. He's very relieved that things are not playing out in public anymore.

      "It was a rough time, but they were able to resolve it. This is a work in progress."

      As well as finalising the details of his divorce from Angelina, Brad is also battling the 'Maleficent' actress for joint custody of their six kids; Maddox, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

      Although they appeared to be on bitter terms for a while, Angelina hinted that things were starting to get better between her and Brad, whom she married in 2014, last month when she said she hoped their divorce would make them a "stronger" family.

      She said: "I don't want to say very much about that, except to say it was a very difficult time and we are a family and we will always be a family, and we will get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it ...

      "Many, many people find themselves in this situation. My whole family, we've all being through a difficult time. My focus is my children, our children ... and my focus is finding this way through. We are and forever will be a family. I am coping with finding a way through to make sure that this somehow makes us stronger and closer."

      And Angelina isn't the only ex Brad has been in contact with recently as he also reached out to his former spouse Jennifer Aniston after he tracked down her number via a "tangled web of contacts" to wish her a happy 48th birthday on February 11.

      Jennifer also offered Brad, 53, some words of comfort regarding his high-profile split from Angelina, who he began a relationship with after his separation and subsequent divorce from the former 'Friends' star back in 2005 after four years of marriage.

    • Kate Winslet Was Told to Settle for 'Fat Girl Parts'

      Kate Winslet was told she would have to settle for "fat girl parts" when she first embarked on her acting career.

      The 41-year-old actress may now be a Best Actress Oscar winner and one of the most in-demand stars in Hollywood but when started her journey on screen she had to deal with a lot of rejections.

      And for Kate a lot of the knock-backs she experienced were based on her appearance because she "wasn't the prettiest" as a teenager and casting directors would tell her that her looks would be a drawback for her.

      Giving a speech to young people at WE Day held at The SSE Arena, Wembley in London on Wednesday (03.22.17), she said: "I got bullied at school, they called me 'blubber', they teased me for wanting to act, they locked me in the cupboard, laughed at me. I wasn't the prettiest, I've always had big feet, and I was even told that I might be lucky in my acting if I was happy to settle for the fat girl parts. And they would say, 'You're just not what we're looking for Kate,' I'd hear that a lot."

      Kate admits there were times when thought about giving up on her acting dream because the comments rocked her self-confidence.

      However, the blonde beauty refused to let the haters win and decided to keep going, and her determination to succeed led her to the role that changed her life starring as Rose DeWitt Bukater in 1997 romantic disaster movie 'Titanic' opposite Leonardo DiCaprio as her lover Jack Dawson.

      She said: "I didn't have the perfect body and I would rarely hear anything positive so I began to feel uncomfortable in my own skin. It made it hard, I wanted to give up. 'Maybe I should rethink this acting thing,' I said to myself but it was my passion and it made me happy!

      "Surely nobody could take my happiness away so I had to rise above it, I had to dig deep and be strong ... I was done with being told I looked wrong, I was done with being told I didn't fit that perfect mold. I wanted to be an actress and nothing was going to stop me. "So what did I do? I didn't lock myself up and give up on my dream, I fought back. I had to ignore the negative comments. I had to believe in myself. I had to choose to rise above it all and I had to work hard. You have to be indestructible to do what you love and believe that you are worth it."

      Revealing how director James Cameron's decision to cast her in 'Titanic' changed her life and set her on a course to mega stardom, Kate urged the children in attendance at the event to be prepared to fail big, but to always try their best.

      She said: "One day I was cast as Rose in 'Titanic'; the most unlikely candidate. Kate from the sandwich shop in Reading suddenly acting in one of the biggest movies ever made. You can be from anywhere and you can do anything, believe it. It is possible to overcome your fears. 'What if I fail, fall over my big feet?' Who cares? Be you! I learned to embrace my flaws to make no apology for who I am I dug deep and I decided that I simply wouldn't listen when they said my body didn't fit. This is who I am, the real me, Kate from Reading."

    • Wyclef Jean Feared for His Life

      Wyclef Jean was "scared for his life" after he was handcuffed by gun-wielding officers in a case of mistaken identity.

      The 47-year-old singer was pulled over by Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department deputies investigating an armed robbery on Tuesday (21.03.17) and is relieved he never lashed out during his ordeal.

      He said: "I have family on both sides of the lens but I got a chance to see what happens with a citizen versus a police firsthand.

      "I have to tell you, I was scared for my life to the point where I could have acted different and if I had, something different could have happened."

      Wyclef slammed officials for "racial profiling" and targeting him because he is black.

      He said authorities were looking for a car with a paper license plate, but that his vehicle didn't have a paper plate.

      He added to ABC News' Robin Roberts: "After I got out of the car, I have my backpack on, I'm coming from the recording studio. I'm automatically rushed

      "When I'm rushed, guns are drawn, which is the part you don't see ... I'm pulled over."

      Wyclef claimed no one told him why they handcuffed him and he was in "shock and awe" as the incident occurred.

      He added: "I say, 'Well, my name is Wyclef Jean.' Then I'm taken and put in handcuffs in the back.

      "The point I want to make and the racial profiling is that basically I feel like I was targeted as a black man.

      "It is clear and was obvious because when I was getting out of the car and the way that the cops rushed me, the conversation that I was having with them, it was a silent and a death conversation.

      "So as a citizen, I feel that, it is only right that if I am telling you my name and who I am, it only takes a second with the technology that we have to basically press a button and Google and say, 'This is Wyclef Jean.'"

      West Hollywood police told Us Weekly in a statement that they were able to determine the Fugees star wasn't the suspect, and the person they were looking for was eventually located a few blocks away and charged with robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm.

    • Adele enjoys Record-Breaking Tour of Australia

      Adele broke records in every city she visited during her eight-concert tour of Australia.

      The 'Hello' hitmaker sold as many as 600,000 tickets during her record-breaking tour Down Under, which included the biggest single concert ever held on Australian soil in Sydney's ANZ stadium, where she performed in front of 100,000 people.

      Tour promoter Michael Coppel told the Daily Telegraph newspaper in Australia: "It's the highest-selling tour I've ever been involved with, which is quite remarkable after working with Pink and U2 and Fleetwood Mac and Roger Waters."

      And Michael suggested Adele's achievement may never be repeated again.

      He said: "We may never see her again."

      Adele's show in Perth, Western Australia, was the quickest-selling event in Domain Stadium's history, while her gig at the Adelaide Oval beat the stadium's highest audience attendance record.

      In Brisbane, meanwhile, Adele's two concerts attracted a combined crowd of 120,000 - which is a record for music events in the city.

      The London-born star also performed in front of 75,000 fans at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne.

      Despite being one of the best-selling artists of all time, Adele has admitted she still suffers from stage fright.

      The singer-songwriter confessed in 2015 that she was finding it harder to perform on stage and was "too frightened to try anything new".

      She shared: "I get so nervous with live performances that I'm too frightened to try anything new.

      "It's actually getting worse. Or it's just not getting better, so I feel like it's getting worse, because it should've gotten better by now."

      The record-breaking star revealed she was petrified of letting her fans down.

      Adele added: "With my stage fright, I just don't want to let people down. I get so nervous onstage that I don't have the guts to improvise or anything like that."
