Twice-married music executive Clive Davis has come out as bisexual in his new memoir titled, “The Soundtrack of My Life.” He also revealed that has been in a monogamous relationship with a man for the past seven years.

Change is good, right? Well, at least a couple of big-name celebs think so. Gwyneth Paltrow is apparently ready to put aside acting to focus on building her lifestyle empire, and Mila Kunis has said that she is looking forward to trading in stardom for motherhood in the (near?) future.

And speaking of Mila Kunis—she is being a bit coy about whether she wants—or doesn’t want—to be considered for the female lead in the upcoming “50 Shades of Grey” movie.

Mayim Bialik shares about the challenges she, a soon-to-be-divorced mom, faces at Purim time, when her children want both their parents to dress up with them as a family in costumes with a unified theme. For the sake of the kids, they are all going as characters from the vintage comic book Tin-Tin.

It’s hard not to wonder what went wrong during the photo shoot (or the photoshopping process) when one glimpses Sarah Jessica Parker on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar China.

Zach Braff and James Franco graciously allowed 16-year-old cub reporter Prince Michael (son of the late king of pop Michael Jackson) to interview them for Entertainment Tonight.

Isla Fisher, busy actress and mother of two, made a trip to Brazil to promote breastfeeding for Save the Children’s 95 Babies breastfeeding campaign.

CBS Films has acquired the U.S. rights to the Coen Brothers’ new film, “Inside Llewyn Davis,” about an aspiring singer-songwriter in 1960s Greenwich Village.

Andrew Garfield is reportedly concerned about just how skinny girlfriend Emma Stone is. We suggest he could show his love by feeding her some schmaltz-laden traditional Eastern European cuisine for her.

And in celebrity sightings we have: Chelsea Handler attending Charlize Theron’s son’s birthday party, along with pal Sandra Bullock and her son; Mila Kunis showing off a fab hairstyle at the “Oz” premiere; Anne Hathaway and hubby Adam Shulman casually strolling in L.A.; Scarlett Johansson flashing a shiny ring while out with boyfriend Romain Dauriac; Kate Hudson spreading some peace backstage at boyfriend Matthew Bellamy’s concert in London; and Bethenny Frankel learning to surf Down Under.
