Madonna Dismisses Rumors She's Feuding With Lady Gaga

Madonna took to social media to prove that she is not feuding with Lady Gaga.


"Love this ❤️#rebelheart ❤️i said love and i meant it! #livingforlove" Madonna, 56, wrote on her Instagram account, captioning a picture of Lady Gaga, 28, with some Rebel Heart embellishments.



Fans recently started wondering if Madonna and Gaga were feuding after one of Madonna's leaked tracks "Two Steps Behind" featured lyrics such as: "You're a copycat, get back/I'm always on your mind". Her manager Guy Oseary, 42, took to twitter to clarify those claims.



"that song is NOT about gaga or anyone in particular," Oseary tweeted, adding: "the song is an unfinished demo she had no intention of finishing or releasing along with many others…She has NO ill will towards gaga. It's nonsense She was listening to the Tony Bennett duet album last week and appreciating it."

Kaley Cuoco: "Breast Implants Was The Best Thing Ever"

Kaley Cuoco posed with her absolutely cute dog on the cover of Redbook magazine's February 2015 issue.

In an interview with the mag, Cuoco, 29, opened up about getting breast implants: "I had no boobs! And it really was the best thing ever! I always felt ill-proportioned. My implants made me feel more confident in my body. It wasn't about trying to be a porn star or wanting to look hot and sexy."



When asked by the outlet if she is a feminist, Kaley replied: "Is it bad if I say no? It's not really something I think about. Things are different now, and I know a lot of the work that paved the way for women happened before I was around…I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that's because I've never really faced inequality. I cook for Ryan five nights a week: It makes me feel like a housewife; I love that. I know it sounds old-fashioned, but I like the idea of women taking care of their men. I'm so in control of my work that I like coming home and serving him. My mom was like that, so I think it kind of rubbed off."


The actress also talked about being television's highest paid actress with her "Big Bang Theory" salary: "All I think about is what it means for my family…and knowing there is security for all of us. My parents spent 16 years hauling my butt to LA for audition after audition. Every day they were helping me learn my lines, dropping me off, waiting for me, picking me up, giving me pep talks when I didn't get the jobs, taking me to tennis and horseback riding lessons. I remember always hoping I could help take care of them because they took such good care of me. Knowing I'll be able to just brings tears to my eyes."

Emeli Sande Quotes

1. "Clown" was written when I couldn't find anyone who believed in me as an artist. Maybe those labels will think twice next time a young songwriter comes along.  







2. I was finding it very difficult to find a label that understood what I wanted to do and really believed that people wanted to hear something honest and a little bit different. So, I did feel a bit like a clown. You're knocking on everyone's door trying to get them to believe what you're doing.



3. I tried to bang down a lot of doors but Virgin were the only label who believed in what I was doing. I ended up with the label that understood what I was trying to do.



4. It would be sad if we lost our instinct and our courage to love and protect.


5. I want to speak for people that may not feel like they're being spoken for at the moment. And I want to make a connection between the world around us and the charts.




6. I wanted to make an album that melodically people can connect to; something that reflects our times and the kinds of difficulties we face.


7. Because they're my stories, they're my version of events of the past three years. But I really hope people can hear their own stories within the songs and they can become our version of events.

8. Anytime I write something that's trying to be too smart, it doesn't work.



9. I mean, there'll always be room for big productions and everything but it's good to see the other side.



10. Just thinking of all the things I'd done getting there and everything I've sacrificed to do so. But what's happening now makes it worth it.


11. The focus is on singer/songwriters now rather than huge shows. I mean, of course there's always a place for that too.


12. I always knew I wanted to be a musician, and I always knew I wanted to write, 'cause the people I was listening to all wrote. I never thought it was an option to sing anyone else's songs.



13. We started very slow in America. It was small acoustic shows. We played places like Los Angeles, New York and Chicago and everywhere there has been a great reaction. It has been really lovely. They listen to the lyrics and the melody over there and the reaction has been fantastic.

14. I'm not too bothered about what category my music goes in and there's no point in limiting in who you can reach, but I want it to be respected.

15. I always wanted to be a musician from when I was kid. It was always a massive dream of mine. School was also really really important to me and having an education was top of my priority. So I really wanted to have a degree before I tried anything in the music industry.





16. Any song I have to work on longer than a day, I just leave it. It's not gonna work. Everything that's good is really instant.


17. I built a reputation as a songwriter in the industry before my own hits. People were used to coming to me for songs. There were songs like "Clown" and "Mountains" that were my songs that I wanted to keep. But the record labels saw me as a songwriter. It was hard to get people to believe in me as an artist.








18. I try to speak of a love that not necessarily romantic. I think there is so much love between people and so much love people want to give but it's harder and harder these days to show that, to celebrate that, you know?


19. I feel like "Next To Me" is a great introduction because it's a simple song that has a simple message for me. I wanted to introduce something that lyrically I'm proud of and introduces me both as an artist and as a writer.

Vin Diesel Teases Possible Involvement In Marvel's "Inhumans" Film

Vin Diesel created a buzz when he updated his facebook page with a picture of him and the phrase "Are You Inhuman" with Marvel's Inhumans logo on the front.  




Diesel, 47, is no stranger to the company as he voiced the character of Groot in "Guardians of the Galaxy" this past summer. He also implied that he would participate in "Guardians" before the news was officially announced, encouraging fans to wonder if he really will be part of "Inhumans".



"Inhumans" is set to be released on November 2, 2018, nearly one year after the second "Guardians of the Galaxy", which Diesel will return for. It appears impossible, though, for one actor to portray two Marvel characters in the same film. No casting has been revealed yet.
