Jennifer Lopez: Dating Young Men is “No Big Deal”

PICS: 'American Idol' Judges Attend The 'Hollywood Week' Auditions

In her own words, Jennifer Lopez is “addicted” to being in love!

Lopez, (who, by the way, considers herself a dancer before actor, singer or fashion mogul) admits in Self‘s January cover story that she finds “comfort” in relationships, despite how hard they can be!  Here are some highlights from her telling interview…

About dating younger men: “All the old clichés about women need to be undone. Enough already,” Lopez added. “We’re in the other position now. We are desirable older, we can date younger guys and it’s not this big taboo. Men have been doing this for years, and it’s no big deal.”

About Breakups: “When you have that much pain, you have to anesthetize yourself in some ways. People do different things. Some go out and party and sleep around, but that’s just not my way. I found the comfort in someone else.”

About fame and heartache: “I’ve been through divorce. I’ve been cheated on, just like every other girl in the world.”

Mel B Walks Out On Husband

Celebrities Seen Leaving The X Factor Live Shows

Mel B has to protect herself.

Voice judge Mel B has walked out on her husband of seven years, Stephen Belafonte, amid fervent Internet rumors of domestic abuse, according to US Weekly: 

Rumors started spreading online on Sunday, Dec. 14, when Mel appeared on the UK’s X Factor finale show, having missed the semi-finals the night before due to an unspecified illness.

When the feisty northerner appeared on the show without her wedding ring and sporting what looked like bruises on her face and arms, worried fans began speculating about the “real” cause of her absence. As Us Weekly previously reported, for his part, Belafonte responded to comments made on Twitter, denying allegations and calling them “disgusting” and “untrue”.

But according to the Sun, the former Spice Girl has now left the London home she shared with the American director, and sources have confirmed to Us that luggage and boxes were being taken away from the house on Monday, Dec. 15.

One source told Us the duo have always had a “volatile” relationship, while another revealed the X Factor judge was in tears during commercial breaks for the hugely popular finale show.

Mel B’s sister Danielle Brown added fuel to the rumors, by tweeting out a series of increasingly desperate messages during her sister’s mystery illness, threatening to go to the press with recordings of what she called “abusive” phone calls Belafonte had allegedly made to Mel in the past week, unless she and her mom were able to contact the singer, or at least find out what was wrong with her.

This is so upsetting.  I hope Mel B gets the help and support she needs.

It’s Official: Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey are OVER

Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon Fight Over Their Dogs

Of course, we’ve known for MONTHS that Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey were over, but nobody ever truly acknowledged anything…until NOW.

While it might be common knowledge that their marriage (complete with garish Disney-themed vow renewals) ended in August,  Nick revealed the two are officially separated during a Monday morning chat with Good Morning America host, Lara Spencer.

Said the host:

“You and I were just talking, Mariah and you are separated, Christmas is about family first and foremost.”

Cannon responded:

“Always focus on family. We’ll forever be family. At the same time, we’re there for our children, making them the No. 1 priority and understanding they’re loved and can have an amazing holiday.”

This might be as close as we can get to Nick saying “Mariah and I are over.” Or do you think either one is hoping for some kind of weird reconciliation?

Exclusive Interview with Mel B.: The X Factor, Spice Girls, Dating and MORE

Celebrities Seen Leaving The X Factor Live Shows

Melanie Brown is BACK, and tells everything to Guardian’s Simon Hattenstone!

Let me tell you, Melanie B.’s never been one to sweeten some harsh truths or to be boring. Here’s a taste of the excellently-written interview…

On her auditions before the Spice Girls: “They were brutal, those auditions. You were told, ‘You’re definitely not what we’re looking for, your hair’s too crazy, your skin colour’s not right’.” How did she react? “I used to just laugh… ‘I know, but I’m not changing it. If anything, I want to go and get a tan and become darker. Everybody looks better with a tan.’”

On the initial Spice Girls “Girl Power” catch phrase: Whose idea was girl power? “I wish it was me,” Brown says, “but I think it was Geri who came up with it.” What did it mean to them? “It was just supporting whatever you want to be as a person. Whatever you want to be, whatever you’re going through, we’re there to sing a song about it.”

On Eddie Murphy’s parentage of her middle daughter, Angel: “It really tore me up, because I didn’t want to blab my side of the story, and I haven’t and I still won’t, out of respect for Angel and out of respect I still have for him. I wouldn’t want to do that to anybody. So I got really down. Stephen, who I’ve known for 15 years, stepped in as a really good friend and said, ‘It’s fine, you’ll get through this.’”

On her three daughters: “Well, I have full custody of all my three kids. We all live together, and they’ve got completely different qualities.” She says Phoenix is cool and sporty, seven-year-old Angel is a show-off “sassy pants”, and three-year-old Madison is a tough firecracker who has to fight for attention.

On her bisexuality:  “Well, I did have a four-year relationship with a woman. But I’ve been very happily married for seven years to a penis. Ha ha! An amazing guy.”

That’s only the tip of the iceberg! Check out the whole interview HERE.
