Kelly Clarkson has certainly lost a lot of weight recently – and she’s finally opening up as to how she was able to do it and keep it off.

On her show on Monday, May 13, Kelly spoke with Whoopi Goldberg about Whoopi’s weight loss, and Kelly told the world that weight loss medication (like Ozempic, but NOT Ozempic, she was clear to say) has helped her take the pounds away.

Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys In Declining Health

We are saddened to hear about Brian Wilson, musician and founding member of The Beach Boys, having been placed under a conservatorship following a Los Angeles court ruling on Thursday.

Wilson consents to the conservatorship.

According to the court documents, Wilson is “unable to care for his person,” has a “Major Neurocognitive Disorder” and “lacks capacity to give informed medical consent for medications.”

Wilson’s conservators are ordered to consult with his children regarding all material related healthcare decisions, the court documents said.

According to the Wilson family, the decision to place Brian under a conservatorship came following the death of his wife, Melinda Wilson, in January.

An Olivia Rodrigo Fan Asks For A HUGE Favor – And She Says Yes!

An Olivia Rodrigo Fan Asks For A HUGE Favor – And She Says Yes!

Olivia Rodrigo is in hot water with one of her fans!

The fan in question decided to get a tattoo of some of Olivia’s song lyrics on her body – but she didn’t exactly proof-read the tattoo before it became permanent.

“Address the letters to the holes in my butterfly wings” became “butter wings.”  Oops.

Olivia said she is thinking of changing the lyrics to accomodate – but we think proofreading would have been an easier choice!

She commented: “HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAH OMG THIS IS THE NEW LYRIC IM CHANGING IT TO BUTTERWINGS”

Miss Teen USA Steps Down – BUT WHY?

Miss Teen USA Steps Down – BUT WHY?

Miss Teen USA UmaSofia Srivastava has stepped down from her role as Miss Teen USA – just days after Miss USA Noelia Voight did the same – blaming mental health concerns and a conflict of values with the parent organization.

On Wednesday May 8, 2024 Srivastava wrote in an Instagram post that she was prematurely stepping away from her 2023 Miss Teen USA title, saying that her “personal values no longer fully align with the direction of the organization.”

Srivastava, 17, of New Jersey, was the first Miss Teen USA winner of mixed Mexican and Indian descent. In her statement announcing her resignation, Yahoo! reports Srivastava said she would continue her advocacy work on behalf of the Lotus Petal Foundation and the Bridge of Books Foundation. She also thanked “those who support me for who I am and have always been, not for who I’ve momentarily become.”
