Celebrity Chatter: Isla Fisher’s Advice to Julianne Hough, Kim Shows Off Baby North

Allie Teilz and Joaquin Phoenix+ Good celebrity Samaritan Isla Fisher reportedly tried to help Julianne Hough avoid what became her blackface scandal by advising her to wash her face off before the paparazzi got to her. Hough clearly didn't take her up on the advice, and Isla's reps are denying that she attempted to intervene.

+ Her actor Joaquin Phoenix was photographed frolicking around in Rome with a new lady who looks like Madonna straight out of the Eighties. Sadly, he didn't go back in time to bring Eighties Madonna to 2013, as it's been revealed that she's Allie Teilz, a 19 year-old DJ.

+ Want to see cute photos of baby North West posing with Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci? Of course you do, which is why Kim Kardashian has been snapping up a storm over it.

+ Miley Cyrus has come out and proclaimed herself as one of the world's biggest feminists. Though one can't argue that she's definitely a staunch proponent for women expressing their sexuality however they may please, she doesn't seem too keen on abstaining from using other women's (especially black women's) bodies for one's own purposes.

Avril Lavigne’s Ex-Husband Drops Her Name

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Divorce,

Deryck WhibleyAvril Lavigne's ex-husband is finally dropping her last name.

Sum 41 singer Deryck Whibley has filed legal documents asking to revert back to his old surname - three years after the pair divorced. Deryck adopted Lavigne as one of his middle names after they tied the knot in 2006, but the "In Too Deep" hitmaker only petitioned to drop the moniker on Thursday, E! Online is reporting.

Avril remarried this summer, swapping vows with Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger in July. The "Complicated" singer chose to not take her husband's surname in both marriages.

While the 29-year-old star has remained on good terms with her ex, blaming their young age for their divorce in 2009, Chad appears to have a fraught relationship with his fellow rocker. Last year, Deryck and his girlfriend Ari Cooper dressed as Avril and Chad for a Halloween party, and the Nickleback star didn't respond well to the joke. "Hey Deryck loved the costumes! We were going to dress up as you guys this year but all the parties had celebrity themes haha!" Chad scoffed on Twitter at the time.

Avril Lavigne Feels Pressure to Have Kids

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Pregnancies, Features, Rumors,

Chad Kroeger and Avril LavigneAvril Lavigne feels under pressure to have a baby.

But the 29-year-old Canadian singer, who married Nickelback star Chad Kroeger, 38, in France in July and has been the subject of pregnancy rumors recently, admits she isn't quite ready to star a family just yet and is focusing on her new album.

The "Rock N Roll" hitmaker told the new online chat show The Lowdown with Diana Madison, "I do [feel pressure to start a family] now that I'm married. I want to be ready. I'm focusing on my music. I'm just releasing a new record. This is my priority and my baby right now."

The singer's self-titled new album will be released on November 5 and she feels very lucky that she and Chad often get to travel together to promote their music: "We actually have spent the majority of our relationship, like all of our time together. They went on the road for a little bit, and I was out with Nickelback on their tour, and then he travels with me, and now that we worked together on my record, we're together then."

Chad Kroeger Embarrassed to Tell His Mom About Avril

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Engagements,

Avril Lavigne and Chad KroegerChad Kroeger was "embarrassed" when he told his parents he was engaged to Avril Lavigne.

The Nickleback frontman - who proposed to the Canadian singer after a whirlwind romance - has not yet introduced his mother to his future wife, and became red-faced when he had to explain they were getting married because his mom is a big fan of her music.

"You never know what your parents are going to say when you tell them you're getting married - especially when it's with someone they haven't met yet. My mom is a huge fan of Avril's, so putting her on speakerphone and telling her the news was hilarious and equally embarrassing."

The "Sk8r Boi" hitmaker has yet to even take Chad to her hometown, but he knows where she will take him when he does make it there. "I find [going back home] almost as terrifying as telling your parents you're going to tie the knot. You just never know when someone is going to come out of the woodwork with a story that's starts with, 'Let me tell you about the time...' But I know she is dying to take me to La Pizzeria to try her favorite pizza in the world," he added.

Avril - who was previously married to Sum 41 rocker Deryck Whibley - recently said she would marry again as she wanted to start a family: "It's all about love and I make that my number one priority.

Avril Lavigne Asking for Divorce

Avril Lavigne and Deryck Whibley weddingUPDATE: You can read Avril’s personal note on the divorce here.

Whispers about a possible split have just grown louder. It’s now being reported that divorce papers will be filed shortly for Avril Lavigne and Deryck Whibley.

Avril is said to have asked Deryck, whom she wed three years ago, to move out of their Los Angeles mansion after calling time on their relationship. “She dumped him and told him she was leaving him. She wants to move on,” a source told Us Weekly magazine.

The Sum 41 rocker is apparently “crushed” by his wife’s decision and was hoping to work through their problems.

Avril, 24, is so determined to distance herself from the relationship that she has decided to ditch tracks she worked on with Deryck from her upcoming album. “She is going to do new songs that don’t have his mark on them. She wants no trace of him,” a friend told the magazine.

The couple’s marriage has reportedly been in trouble for months now, with Avril often seen partying with friends without her husband. In June, Deryck went to the Los Angeles premiere of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen alone while Avril spent a week holidaying in Saint-Tropez with pals.

Deryck, 29, was also not present when Avril showed her new clothing collection at New York Fashion Week on Monday. Whibley’s representative did not comment on the report, while Lavigne’s could not be reached.
