The "Let Me Blow Ya Mind" hitmaker's boyfriend, designer and Gumball 3000 founder Maximillion Cooper, proposed to her on Christmas Day, her representative has confirmed to E! News.

Eve - whose full name is Eve Jihan Jeffers - first hinted at an engagement after posting a picture on Instagram of herself with her family, and a diamond ring was clearly visible on her left hand. The photo was captioned, "#familytime!!!! Me and my mom and my lil brother Farrod just got to the English country side. Feel so#blessed to be with my family and sharing my life here. I pray that you bring 2014 in with people you #love. And nothing but #good #energy [sic]."

The couple usually divide their time between London and the US but have been spending the festive season in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The nuptials will be Eve's first, while Maximillion - who has been dating the Barbershop star for over three years - has four children from a previous marriage.

Idris Elba to DJ in London

Idris ElbaIdris Elba will make a special DJ appearance at London's Sway nightclub on Friday.

The actor-and-DJ will provide the soundtrack to a night of partying at the Covent Garden hotspot, marking his first DJ set since the whirlwind success of his latest acting role as Nelson Mandela in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, for which he recently earned a Golden Globe nomination

The 41-year-old star will DJ under his musical moniker 7 Wallace and will also be joined by US female rapper Eve - whose hit singles include "Tambourine" and "Rich Girl" with Gwen Stefani - and former EastEnders actor Chucky Venn, who plays Ray Dixon in the BBC One soap.

Idris recently revealed that his next album will be dedicated to former South African leader Nelson Mandela, who died at the age of 95 earlier this month: "The album will be called Mi Mandela. I went back to South Africa and worked with some great musicians. I'm really proud of the album. I'll wait until the film has died down so it doesn't get muddled but I'll release it in the New Year. Basically, it's a love letter from me to Mandela about me playing him."


Garry Marshall Planning a Star-Studded New Year’s Eve

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: New Line, Romance, Comedy, Casting, Celeb News,

Director Garry Marshall gathered some of Hollywood’s biggest names for Valentine’s Day, and now he’s taking on another holiday.

Marshall has cast Ashton Kutcher, Hilary Swank, Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Abigail Breslin and Lea Michele in his upcoming New Year’s Eve. Sounds like a party.

The movie focuses on a group of New Yorkers and how they spend the holiday. Kutcher’s character hates it, De Niro’s is dying, and Pfeiffer’s is an overworked secretary who’s ready to kick up her heels.

Hilary Swank will play the producer of the huge Times Square New Year’s Eve party, so we’ll be looking for a few notable cameos, too.

Shooting for the film begins next month in New York.

Interaction Wall-EHow could we not pay homage to our newest and favest bot? Wall-E debuted today and although we couldn’t make the premiere, we did notice that there are already a truckload of toys and other tie-ins, like this Interaction Wall-E. The little guy’s eyes light up, he moves his head and arms, and has the original movie voice and sound effects. If that isn’t enough, when you talk to him, he responds and, if you are too busy, can communicate with Interaction Eve. At a size of 6.5 x 10.5 x 8.5-inches and a weight of 2.1 pounds, we found one on Amazon for $43.99.

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Design, Misc. Tech, Science,

EveJapan’s Robots of the Year are Fanuc Ltd.’s robotic assembly line arms that are already present in pharmaceutical and food plants. The three arms feature suction cups that pick up items on at the speed of 120 pieces per minute. During the competition, they also lined up items in rows inside boxes. The winners were chosen for its practicality and beat out a dancing humanoid, a bot that can toss water on a fire three times as far as a human can, and Eve, a transparent torso for medical practice that complains verbally if the user tugs a little too much on a catheter.

The 2007 MTV Video Music Awards

MTV Moon MenBefore this evening’s festivities begin, the producers of the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards should really thank the scandal-plagued artists who’ve unintentionally thrown publicity their way.  Tonight, we’ll be thinking about those performers who’ve canceled because they need to be in rehab (Amy Winehouse) and closely watching those who should probably go back ().

We’d been warning you for weeks that this would be a one-time only telecast, but in case you forgot—we hope this helps.  And for those who live on the West Coast (like me), you can play along and read our coverage as if it were in real-time:
