Star Scoop: Kelly Rowland Bears Her Bump, Kerry Washington Finds the One, Gaga’s New Years’ Eve


Blake Lively isn’t the only pregnant celeb to make us swoon. Mommy-to-be Kelly Rowland is immortalizing her baby bump in the new issue of Elle, and might we say, she wears it well. Actor-turned-photographer Lance Gross shot Rowland for the glossy, where she speaks on pregnancy fitness, her beauty routine, and how she’ll maintain normalcy for her baby boy. [ELLE]

On the small screen, she’s stuck between an assassin and the President of the United States. In real life, she’s a super-private wife and mother of one. When we next see her on film, Kerry Washington will be walking down the aisle. The Scandal star is confirmed as the lead in Is He The One, a romcom about a bride-to-be whose wedding day is filled with flashbacks of the three biggest loves of her life. [Deadline]

Forget Ryan Seacrest. We’ll be heading to Sin City with Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett for New Years’ Eve. The Cheek to Cheek collaborators are bringing their jazz revue to Las Vegas in a December 31 show at The Cosmopolitan. Talk about ringing in the new year with class and champs! [USA Today]

Before David Fincher was attached to Oscar contender Gone Girl, he helmed music videos for the likes of MadonnaPaula Abdul, the Rolling Stones, and Sting. You may not remember, because most of the works ran in the 90s… but if you love Justin Timberlake’s Grammy award-winning “Suit & Tie,” you have Fincher to thank. [Vulture]

Yaaaaaas Onika! Nicki Minaj is riding her “***Flawless” wave, from a Parisian set with Beyoncé, to the MTV Europe Music Awards stage, to the cover of L’Uomo Vogue. In the menswear-inspired spread (think everything “Anaconda” is not), she bobs about for photographer Francesco Carrozzini, the man behind Bey’s “Jealous” video. [MTV]
