Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford were married over the weekend!

Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford finally set the marriage rumors to rest, and were married yesterday in Somerset, England. The two were married on a farm, in front of family and friends (and some celebrities too!).

Carey Mulligan is a married woman! The Drive actress wed Marcus Mumford at a farm in Somerset, England in front of approximately 100 guests, including family and celeb pals, Sienna Miller, Colin Firth and Jake Gyllenhaal, on Saturday, Us Weekly has confirmed.

After just five months together, the Mumford & Sons singer, 24, popped the question to the British star, 26, in August 2011.

“They’re a great couple,” a pal told Us of the duo who were childhood pen pals in London. “Very sweet.”

Things first got serious when Mulligan and Gyllenhaal caught a secret Mumford & Sons show in Nashville, Tenn. February 2011 at the home of band members from The Apache Relay.

“At the end of the night there were just the musicians, Jake, Carey, and the Mumford boys,” an insider told Us at the time. “We had some pizza, and just played music. Jake picked up a guitar and Carey joined in on ‘Amazing Grace.’ Marcus and Carey seemed really friendly.”

A few days later, Mulligan and Mumford caught a secret Arcade Fire show in NYC before hitting up a private members only club, a second insider told Us.

Oscar-nominated Mulligan split with longtime beau Shia LaBeouf back in October 2010; Mumford broke up with singer Laura Marling in late 2010.

Rumor has it Adele performed at their reception, and if that’s true – can you imagine!! How amazing would that be!

Apparently Carey and Marcus have known each other for years.

Cute couple!

Women Soloists Lead Billboard Music Award Nominations

Lady Gaga,  Rihanna and Adele lead in nominations for the Billboard Music Awards, which will be held in Vegas on May 20th.

But is anyone surprised? Glad to see some powerful female artists at the top of their game!

Adele has been nominated in 18 categories:  Top Female Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Artist and more. And of course, hit single  “Rolling in the Deep” is  up for awards in seven categories. Rihanna is at her heels,  nominated for 13 nominations at the awards, while Lady Gaga garnered 10 nominations.

Those are the big lady nominees, but also up for awards are  Lil’ Wayne in 10 categories and LMFAO in 17 categories. Not bad,  gentlemen- but I have a feeling these ladies will steal the show!

Billboard Announces Top 40 Money Makers In Music – Taylor Swift #1

Taylor Swift ranked at the top of Billboard’s Top 40 Money Makers in a list released today. Taylor came in at #1 with $35,719,000!

After wrapping the final leg of her Fearless tour, Taylor Swift’s blockbuster success two years ago left music industry observers wondering what she could possibly do for an encore. The pop-country superstar answered them with her smash Speak Now album and accompanying tour, which jetted through Asia and Europe in addition to making its way across North America. Grossing $88.5 million in the U.S. alone, the tour netted Swift a remarkable $29.8 million. Honored as Billboard’s Woman of the Year in December, she racked up U.S. album sales of 1.8 million units last year-led by booming business for late 2010′s Speak Now, which sold 967,000 units and digital single track sales of 7.8 million. Songwriting royalties were another highly beneficial source of income, given that Swift wrote all 14 Speak Now tunes herself.

See the rest of the list after the jump!  (more…)
