According to a report from E! News, Lindsay Lohan is currently at a private residence with her sober coach, and plans to stay there until her European vacation where she will promote her new film “The Canyons. A letter from Cliffside Malibu Treatment Center states that Lindsay Lohan should have court-ordered therapy, in order to ensure her success with the program, “We feel that it is critical that Ms. Lohan have court ordered therapy, specifically three fifty-minute sessions a week for the next eighteen months,” the letter explains. “This should be done face to face while she is in town, and via skype or phone session is she is out of town. Our entire clinical team is in unanimous agreement that if these sessions are not required by the court and attendance not verified once a month to ensure accountability, it is a set up for almost certain failure.” In addition, LiLo‘s attorney says the actress is “doing amazing” after completing rehab.

Oscar winner Matt Damon was up for the task when asked by director Neill Blomkamp to bulk up for his role in Elysium. “[Neill] was so specific about what he wanted me to look like. He actually had a picture with my face tacked onto this guy with this body, and they literally hired me a trainer and I went to him with the picture,” Damon explained to Variety. “It was four hours a day in the gym — and I’m not 26 anymore, but I got in shape.”

Just weeks after it’s release, Mariah Carey‘s latest summer smash hit song, #Beautiful featuring Miguel has reached platinum status with 1000 000 digital downloads. In anticipation for the release of her upcoming album, tentatively titled “The Art Of Letting Go” due out soon, Carey seemed to have fun with the record, collaborating with a variety of rappers including Young Jeezy. In addition, pleasing her Spanish fans, the songstress even recorded a Spanglish version of the song, called #Hermosa. See iTunes for the available versions of “#Beautiful”.

Taking a leaf out of Justin Bieber‘s book, 20 year old Jonas Brothers singer, Nick Jonas took to Instagram to last Tuesday to post a shirtless selfie of his ripped body with a note attached, “I never do this but… Healthy living and fitness update. Post workout picture. #diabeticinshape #2.0”. In the photo the Jonas Brother, donning his Nike workout shorts, lifts his right arm above his head while staring mesmerizingly into the camera. Guess, if you’re working hard and looking good, you may as well show it off! Check out Nick’s Instagram here.

Nicki Minaj is, line for line, one of the wittiest, most creative rappers working today and her many personas and voices fly through her songs with joyful abandon, and she seems to be having so much fun. On the effervescent, minimally invasive bounce track “Beez in the Trap,” Minaj plays the queen of a hive, with Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz buzzing around her. The Trinidadian American rapper from New York City offers repeated evidence of her talents, and she delivers funny, biting, bawdy lines and rhyming couplets with apparent glee.Nicki has a personal style that defies all the rules of fashion instead of wearing the same frocks as other stars she dons curve-clinging jumpsuits, bright ensembles, pompom dresses and insane wigs, “I won’t wear red. I have always been a pink girl and I feel like red is the anti-pink,” says Minaj. The worlds most colorful rapper, Nicki has certainly found her place in the entertainment industry.
