Justin Timberlake

An engagement for DeCaprio?

While Leonardo DiCaprio may have been filming in Australia during rumored girlfriend Blake Lively’s birthday — she celebrated with pals in New York — he was at least on hand last month for her father’s big day in Los Angeles, where he reportedly gifted the senior Lively with an elaborate coloring book, according to Us Weekly. “Blake’s father loved it,” a source says, adding that the alleged couple are getting pretty cozy and “are so smitten it’s crazy. I bet they get engaged in the next six months.”

Timberlake Colorado PDA

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are fueling speculation that they’re back on again. The pair hit up a friend’s wedding in Colorado over the weekend and the couple definitely seemed to be enjoying each other’s company, according to People. “There was plenty of PDA,” a source says.

Madonna vs. Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga
has made it clear that she’s possibly Madonna’s biggest fan, but the same apparently can’t be said for Madge’s feelings about “Mother Monster.” “As for Lady Gaga, I have no comment to make about her obsessions having to do with me because I don’t know whether her behavior is rooted in something deep and meaningful or superficial,” Madonna tells French newspaper Le Soir. Her rep has tried to smooth things over,  telling E! News, “I do know that [Madonna] has said many supportive things about Gaga over the years.”

Hannigan: Not pregnant

Alyson Hannigan took to Twitter to clear up pregnancy rumors after a photo where she appeared to be sporting a baby bump popped up online. “No, I’m not pregnant! I just ate too much carnival food, that time of the month, hurt my back and couldn’t suck my gut in — and need to do cardio,” the star posted in response.
