She finds her music inspiring.


Dua Lipa tells Time magazine that a former teacher helped her realize how good her voice was. "I had a teacher there called Ray, who I just absolutely loved – but he was the scariest teacher and he would make me get up in front of the class and sing. I remember singing in front of a class my age – I was about nine – and he said, 'Right, I’m changing your class,' and put me in the 9am class with the 14- and 15-year-olds. That really boosted my confidence."



Sabrina Carpenter tells Elle magazine that she didn't have a plan B in place if her singing career didn't take off. “I never had the plan B, and it wasn’t even a thought in my mind that it wouldn’t work out. I just always knew it was about not if it would happen but when it would happen.”

Post Malone tells NPR.org that his daughter likes to dance along to his songs.“She knows and it's so cute because her mom has all the songs. I sent her all the songs. And whenever she hears, she does this kind-of shoulder dance. She gets so pumped. It's so funny to watch her. And that makes me, like, the proudest man in the world."

Luke Bryan tells Billboard magazine that several pop stars are in the running to replace Katy Perry as a judge on American Idol. “I’ve said several names. I think Pink has been in the talks, Miley Cyrus has been in the talks, Meghan Trainor has been in the talks/ It’s been interesting. It’s been something Disney has been really tightlipped about with me and Lionel and Ryan. We currently haven’t heard what the story is on who’s coming back, and if Lionel and I are coming back. I think Disney is just trying to figure out what they want to do and we’re just kind of sitting back and waiting until they decide.”


OK! magazine says Brad Pitt is allegedly planning to propose to his girlfriend Ines de Ramon. A source says, "Ines is a breath of fresh air for Brad. With her, there’s no drama. Rumors are swirling that Brad is planning to pop the question this summer; it could happen anytime. Truthfully, Brad has been ready to propose for a while. He’s so happy with Ines. Brad met her at the perfect moment, having had time to grow after his divorce. Once Ines moved in with him last year, he knew he could have a future with her.”



Closer Weekly says Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson are allegedly on thin ice due to canceled wedding plans and arguments over his relationship with ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow.  A source says, "Dakota is hesitant about marriage due to her parents' multiple divorces and feels overshadowed by Gwyneth. It’s true they went back and forth on the wedding plans a number of times. Dakota went along with things, but she wasn’t totally sure and that took a huge toll on Chris. They also had some other blow-ups, a lot of them related to Gwyneth and how much Chris still relies on her. They’re back on now, but by no means in a great place and Chris isn’t doing anything to help the situation because he’s still heavily leaning on Gwyneth. It’s always been a bone of contention for Dakota that Chris seems to need a second opinion from Gwyneth on everything, and no matter how many times he promises to change it never really does.”


Tom Brady tells the E! News Network that he is open to doing some acting. “We’ll see, we’ll see. I think the better part about me as I’ve been retired longer is I get a little bit more selective with what I’m doing too. And I’ve loved those things that I’ve done, but it really has to be something special for me. Make some offers, let’s see what we can do. Maybe there’s an 80 for Brady sequel coming out.’’

Dear Fonseca,

My fiance and I are expecting our first child together. Over the weekend, he came to me and asked if we could name our daughter after his late wife. At first, I thought he was kidding, but he wasn't. He says he wants to honor her and that it would mean a lot if I went along with his idea. I am still in shock. He needs to leave the past in the past and move forward. Some would say I'm insensitive. If he's not over his late wife, what does that mean for the future of our relationship and our child? Should I cave to his request or not?
