Leighton Meester: 'I want a family someday'

She may play a mean girl on "Gossip Girl," but Leighton Meester is a sentimental softie at heart. In an interview with the February issue of Seventeen magazine, the actress dishes about her desire to have a family and admits that her split with co-star Sebastian Stan left her crushed.

"I've only had one experience where it was really hard and I was really sad when it ended," Meester, 24, says of her April breakup from Stan, 27. "I've never really liked anybody before. Even when I would date guys, it would sort of be on the surface and it was always a relief when we broke up."

The "Country Strong" star says she learned a lot from the experience, especially about the importance of keeping her heart open. "If I shut love down or didn't let it in, I would just be this really cold, sad person," she explains.

While Meester hopes to settle down eventually, she is proceeding with caution when it comes to finding a partner. "I want a family someday… and I think there is someone out there for me," she says, "but I'm not on some crazy hunt for that right now."

Valentine's Day heats things up on 'Glee'

After all the "will-they-or-won't-they," it looks like Kurt and Blaine just might on the Valentine's Day episode of "Glee": TV Guide reports that the Dalton Academy duo are expected to officially embark on a romance in a show airing February 8.

When the character of Blaine (Darren Criss) was first introduced on the hit Fox series in November, it was rumored he would be a potential love interest for McKinley High student Kurt (Chris Colfer). And though Kurt has pined for Blaine and gotten closer to him by transferring to Dalton, the two have remained just friends – until now.

According to TV Guide, the Cupid's Day episode will feature the pair singing Robin Thicke's "When I Get You Alone" outside a Gap store just as Blaine is preparing to finally profess his love to Kurt.

While 20-year-old Colfer didn't exactly confirm the storyline, he did hint that things could be heating up for the tuneful twosome. "There might be a development," he said coyly.

Nicki Minaj wants to be an actress

With her pink wigs, neon makeup, and outrageous costumes, Nicki Minaj looks like a character straight out of a Tim Burton film - and that just might be her intention.

Discussing her acting ambitions in the March/April issue of King magazine, the 26-year-old hip-hop sensation said, "I’d like to play someone in a Tim Burton movie, where I get dressed up and painted and crazy."

Besides appearing in a fantasy flick, master-of-disguise Minaj also hopes to make a "Salt"-style spy thriller. "I want to be able to do some action stuff, like Angelina Jolie," she said.

Demi Lovato is no superhero

Demi Lovato and Marvel Comics have joined forces to put a stop to those rumors that the troubled teen will appear in the upcoming superhero ensemble "The Avengers."

A recent Radar report claimed that Lovato, 18, was up for a role in the Joss Whedon-directed film, which has a cast that includes Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk.

But sources in both Lovato's and Marvel's camps tell the Hollywood Reporter the story is false and that the Disney star - currently in rehab for "emotional and physical issues" - will not be involved in the film, partly because it would be too problematic to hire her while she's still in treatment.
