Coldplay front man Chris Martin.

Kutcher spotted sans Moore

Ashton Kutcher stepped out without Demi Moore during the weekend, making an appearance at the Clinton Foundation anniversary concert at the Hollywood Bowl, according to Us Weekly. Kutcher, who was on hand to introduce a performance by Usher, also made mention of the DNA Foundation, the charity he started with Moore to combat sex trafficking, though he referred to it as “my DNA Foundation,” a source says. Kutcher appeared to be wearing his wedding ring at the event, according to onlookers.

Martin talks about marriage

Chris Martin admits that he’s only really had one serious relationship in his life — his marriage to Gwyneth Paltrow. “That’s right. I’m in it,” he says in an interview with CBS. “It’s a giant leap. Let’s face it, it’s like winning the lottery.” Martin, who rarely speaks openly about his family life, also says his two kids with Paltrow — Apple, 7, and Moses, 5 — have had quite an impact on his career with Coldplay. “It’s made it more focused,” he says. “And you have a purpose. I like what it does. Just the idea of having to work hard so your kids are OK.”

Liz Taylor’s memorial service

Elizabeth Taylor was honored by friends and family at a memorial event held on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, Calif., during the weekend, according to People magazine. Hosted by Colin Farrell, the event was attended by Taylor’s children, Michael and Christopher Wilding, Liza Tivey, Maria Burton, and stepdaughter Kate Burton, as well as friends like Michael Caine and Elton John, who performed at the ceremony. “To say that the world got smaller, emptier, darker and lonelier when we lost Elizabeth is an understatement,” John told the crowd. “She was a true rock.”
