The Truth About Katie Holmes’ Dating Life


Two years after her romance with Jackson ended, Holmes began dating the American Pie star.

The pair got engaged in December 2003, but Holmes ended the relationship less than two years later—and just a few months before the TomKat era began. 

To end any speculation about the timeline of the actress’ engagements, Klein told Access Hollywood at the time, “People are going to write what they want to write. Her being with Tom has nothing to do with her and I discontinuing our relationship.”

Holmes, meanwhile, told W Magazine, “Chris and I care about each other and we’re still friends. Tom is the most incredible man in the world.”

Klein would reflect on their relationship in a 2012 interview with People, explaining, “We found comfort in one another. We had a similar upbringing, and we were going through the same experience. As the teenage craze came to an end, we found that our relationship was changing as well.”

He continued, “From my side there was a lot of denial and fear about the future. It ended as amicably as these things can end.”

Machine Gun Kelly On Pete Davidson And Megan Fox


Updated 20 minutes ago. Posted 1 hour ago

MGK and Pete Davidson might be each other’s biggest fans.

Machine Gun Kelly is very happily in love right now with Megan Fox. The couple have been living their best lives together, detailing how they’re “two halves of the same soul” along the way. When MGK did a recent interview with Howard Stern, he did exactly that, before gushing about his other biggest fan: Pete Davidson.

When The Howard Stern Show host asked MGK, “You’re gonna marry Megan. I think this is gonna happen, and I think Pete’s gonna be your best man. Am I correct?,” the music artist and actor was very into the idea.

“Whoa, that’s cool,” he said. “Yeah, I’m down with that.”

MGK also proceeded to praise Pete for the Saturday Night Live actor’s own relationships, including his engagement to Ariana Grande, which did not work out.

“I remember when like the Ari thing happened, I just looked at Pete and I was like, ‘Man, the average American dude is very proud,’” MGK said.

“He was just like a symbol of hope, because he was one of the boys,” he explained. “Just one of the guys in the basement.”

As for MGK’s own relationship with Megan, he sweetly said he didn’t know what love at first sight “was until me and her made eye contact”: “That’s when I was like, ‘Whoa.’”

“It was my first experience with being open to love and stuff like that,” he explained. “I definitely wasn’t set up to believe that that’s something that could ever exist.”

If MGK and Megan Fox do tie the knot, just imagine the best man speech Pete Davidson would come prepared with.

Michelle Obama & Jennifer Lopez Bond Over Virtual Learning


Michelle Obama and Jennifer Lopez may be two of the most famous women in the world, but at home, the powerhouse women are known simply as “mom.”

In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, they’re able to do a lot more hands-on parenting than their normally busy schedules would allow. In a new Instagram video about the importance of getting out and voting in the upcoming election, the two women discussed the upside to having their kids at home while attending school virtually. 

“Things are confusing, not quite safe,” Michelle admitted about how her two daughters – Malia, 22, and Sasha, 19 – cannot return to their college campus. “I’m just glad they’re staying put, even if they’re sick of me!”

Malia is currently studying at Harvard University, while Sasha attends the University of Michigan

Jennifer, whose children Emme and Maximilian, 12, are in 7th grade, said that she also feels lucky she can keep her kids close.

Jharrel Jerome Is Returning To His First Love, Hip-Hop


Updated 2 minutes ago. Posted 2 minutes ago

“Being from the BX, rap was in my blood whether I knew it or not.”

If you don’t already know who Jharrel Jerome is, he’s an accomplished actor (and now musician) who became the first Afro Latino to win an acting Emmy last year for his role as Korey Wise in When They See Us.

He’s also appeared in Moonlight, Mr. Mercedes, and Concrete Cowboy.

Despite being best known for his phenomenal acting, Jharrel recently announced on Instagram that he’s returning to his first love, hip-hop.

“Before I became an actor, hip-hop was my first love,” he wrote on Instagram. “I grew up listening to everything old school, from Slick Rick, to the Tribe, to Big Pun.”

“I was the one spitting off top at the lunch table in the sixth grade. If there was a freestyle cypher happening at the park, I was there. Being from the BX, rap was in my blood whether I knew it or not.”

“Before my life changed, I had no idea I’d want to turn rap from a hobby to a career,” he continued. “But given my acting platform and these unbelievable blessings through the past few years, I decided to hone in on my music.”

“Since 2016, I’ve been putting all the bank I’ve made from my films into studio sessions and recording equipment; trying to find my sound, my voice, my cadence, and my style.”

“Four years, 600 sessions and 80 songs later, I think I’ve found it. After countless nights of figuring out how I want to package my music, I decided to start small. My first single ‘For Real’ is just a glimpse of who I am as an artist.”

And given that he’s been relatively silent on Instagram and Twitter since July, he then addressed how his relationship with social media inspired the song.

“To my core fans, I am a mysterious figure on social media. So this record explains my fear of social media and allowing people in. Although i’m able to carry an air of confidence with me at all times, I still trap myself inside of a shell. Hiding from the praise. Hiding from the attention. Hiding from the expectations.”

He ended with, “It’s due to a question I constantly ask myself now, amidst all the panic, change, and outside terrors: ‘How do I stay real?'”

I for one think Jharrel is as real as they come. If you want to check out his new single, “For Real” which also features Kemba, then check it out below:

Hugh Jackman’s Emmys Hazmat Suit Man Reveals Behind-the-Scenes Details


An Emmys night to remember.

That’s certainly how award show producer Phil Rosenberg felt after wrapping the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards. For an exclusive chat with E! News, the up-and-coming industry professional opened up about what it took to pull off the virtual 2020 Emmys on Sunday, Sept. 20.

Rosenberg, who was credited as a Producer during Sunday night’s Emmys, wore many hats while working for Done+Dusted (as E! readers may know, Done+Dusted was the production company that pulled all of this off, alongside Reginald Hudlin and host Jimmy Kimmel, in a global pandemic).

As he detailed to us, Rosenberg helped with producing the comedy nominations package and other aspects of the show.

“I’ve worked with this team a bunch before,” Rosenberg exclusively shared with E!. “When they asked me to work the Emmys, it was, obviously, a dream come true.”

His other job at the Emmys? One of those hazmat suit people waiting outside or inside celebrities’ homes.

Behind-The-Scenes Stories About Songs


Updated 1 minute ago. Posted 1 hour ago

Did you know that Dolly Parton used her acrylic nails to write “9 to 5”?

1.

Harry Styles wrote “Falling” in just a shower towel with Fine Line songwriter and producer Thomas Hull, aka Kid Harpoon, in only 20 minutes.


Columbia / Erskine

Styles told Zane Lowe in an interview for Apple Music that it took him only 20 minutes to write the emotional ballad “Falling”: “I was going out for dinner and I was getting picked up from Tom’s house. As I came out of the shower, he was playing. I went and stood next to him at the piano, just in a towel, and we just wrote the whole thing.”

Styles talked candidly about his emotional state while writing “Falling,” claiming that while he was recording Fine Line, “The times when I felt good and happy were the happiest I’ve ever felt in my life, and the times when I felt sad were the lowest I’ve ever felt in my life.”

2.

Stevie Nicks wrote “Landslide” about her difficult breakup with Lindsey Buckingham in 1974 just before they joined Fleetwood Mac.

On Oprah’s Master Class, Nicks revealed the real inspiration behind writing “Landslide.” She said that in 1974, her romantic relationship with Buckingham was turning unhealthy and stressful. The two songwriters hadn’t landed a record deal yet, they were running out of money, and Nicks was tired of working as a waitress all day and making music at night. She considered going back to school if their music career never panned out, and claimed that the year before she and Buckingham joined Fleetwood Mac was a tumultuous one. “This didn’t do a lot for our relationship,” Nicks said, “because fear never helps relationships, and when you’re scared about where your next money is coming from, it’s really nerve-racking.”

3.

While recording “Partition” in the studio, Beyoncé didn’t come prepared with any lyrics — she completely ad-libbed the song as soon as she heard the bass line and beat.


Parkwood / Columbia

In Beyoncé’s Self-Titled documentary, she revealed that she went into the recording studio without a pen and paper and just started singing into the mic. She said: “I’m in the studio and I hear this bass line and this beat. It has snaps, and it has two tracks — it’s very simple. It takes me back to when me and my husband first met and he’s trying to scoop me and he thinks I’m the hottest thing in the world.”

Beyoncé revealed that it was important for her to express her sexual fantasies in “Partition” because of the complex feelings women experience after giving birth for the first time. She said, “You could have your child and you could still have fun and still be sexy and still have dreams and still live for yourself. I don’t have any shame about being sexual, and I’m not embarrassed about it.”

4.

When John Lennon divorced his first wife in the late ’60s, Paul McCartney wrote “Hey Jude” for Lennon’s son, Julian, to make him feel better.


Central Press / Getty Images

In a video for GQ where McCartney broke down his most popular songs, he revealed the story behind the Beatles classic “Hey Jude.” After Lennon and his first wife, Cynthia, got divorced, McCartney drove out to visit Cynthia and their son, Julian. He said: “I was thinking about the boy — whose name is Julian — and I started this idea: ‘Hey, Jules, don’t make it bad. It’s gonna be okay.’ It was a reassurance song.” McCartney said he changed the lyric from “Hey Jules” to “Hey Jude” because “Jules” was a mouthful to sing.

5.

Dolly Parton used her acrylic nails to write “9 to 5” because she believed they sounded like a typewriter.


20th Century Fox

Parton reflected on her time writing the title track for 9 to 5 on The Tonight Show in 2019 and told Jimmy Fallon: “When I wrote this song, I used my acrylic nails on the set. I did because they make noise, and it kind of sounded like a typewriter to me. And I played it on the actual record — it says ‘Nails by Dolly’ on the album!”

6.

Lil Nas X wrote “Old Town Road” for his Twitter followers during his first year of college instead of retaking a math class.


Columbia

In an episode of How It Went Down for Billboard, Lil Nas X revealed how he wrote this monster hit while riding home from school during his first year of college. He said: “I’m supposed to start this math class and retake it, but I don’t do that — what I do is make a song for Twitter, ’cause I have a big Twitter following where I post memes and stuff.”

He talked about his songwriting process in great detail, telling Billboard how he found the perfect beat for “Old Town Road” on YouTube: “I go through, like, maybe 100 beats or more. I come across this one beat and it sounds different. In a way [it] relates to my situation, of what I wanted to do at the moment — which is just run away from life.”

7.

When John Legend first played the wedding classic “All of Me” for his then-fiancé, Chrissy Teigen, she cried.


GOOD / Columbia

In an interview with Shazam, Legend talked about playing this wedding anthem for Teigen for the first time, and how she couldn’t help but cry. He said, “She really loved it and connected with the lyrics. When she heard some of the specific lyrics, she just knew it was about her — she felt it.”

Legend continued to explain the power “All of Me” has on relationships, specifically when he performs it in concert: “I know someone has proposed when I hear a big cheer from the crowd in the middle of the song. I love that so many people feel the lyrics and wanna include the song as a part of a very special moment in their lives.”

8.

Billie Eilish wrote “Bellyache” from the perspective of a serial killer.


Darkroom / Interscope

At the 2018 Forbes Under 30 Summit, Eilish was asked about the inspiration behind her hit “Bellyache,” mainly because the lyrics felt very obscure. She said, “I like writing in characters — I like putting myself in a place that I normally wouldn’t be, or a place that somebody I know is in. I feel like you don’t have to go through exactly what you’re writing about — it’s art.”

Eilish continued to go into detail about the dark meaning behind “Bellyache,” and how she wrote it with her brother in her garage: “[‘Bellyache’] is from the perspective of a serial killer, and I don’t know how in the world that came about. [My brother] was like, ‘My friends aren’t far in the back of my car, are there bodies?’ And I was like, ‘No. It should be: In the back of my car, lay their bodies. And we both were, like, [screaming].”

9.

Taylor Swift was inspired to write “Death by a Thousand Cuts” after watching the Netflix rom-com Someone Great.


Netflix / Republic

Swift couldn’t help but gush about the Netflix rom-com Someone Great in an interview with Elvis Duran in 2019. She loved the heart and depth of the movie and explained how greatly it impacted her life. Swift said, “For a week, I start waking up from dreams that I’m living out that scenario, that that’s happening to me. I have these lyrics in my head based on the dynamics of these characters.”

A few months after releasing Lover, Swift got a surprise email from the writer and director of Someone Great, Jennifer Kaytin Robinson. Swift told Duran: “[Jen Robinson’s] like, ‘I just wanted to thank you for mentioning my movie; it was about my own breakup. While I was moving across the country, the album I had on repeat was 1989.’ And so I’m sitting there [thinking], I just wrote a song based on something she made, which she made while listening to something I made, which is the most meta thing that’s ever happened to me.”

10.

Donald Glover said that “This Is America” is a song for the people, and it’s up to them to interpret what it’s really about.


mcDJ / RCA

During a press tour for Solo: A Star Wars Story, Glover was asked about the meaning behind the “This Is America” music video. He refused to define it and responded with, “I feel like it’s not really my place to do that. I think it’s just something that should just be out there — it’s for the people. Just like Star Wars, you can watch this and walk away with whatever you need to…
