Amber Riley: Chris Colfer is my real-life Kurt

The close bond that Mercedes and Kurt share on "Glee" isn't all for show—Amber Riley says that she and Chris Colfer are BFFs off-screen as well.

"Chris Colfer really is my Kurt," Riley, who appears on the May cover of Marie Claire with co-stars Dianna Agron and Lea Michele, tells the magazine. "That's my baby. Having his character at that other school — Dalton Academy — this season is driving me up the wall."

While Riley boasts about her relationship with Colfer, Agron makes it clear that she and Michele aren't as close as some rumors suggest.

For your entertainment: The best stage falls

Lady Gaga’s tumble during a Houston concert was a nasty one, but she’s definitely not alone.

Steven Tyler’s wipeout during a 2009 performance caused Aerosmith to pull the plug on the rest of their summer tour, and a pregnant Alicia Keys struck fear in the hearts of her audience members at the 2010 Essence Music Festival when she stumbled on stage.

But then there are the live performance, on-stage spills that become YouTube gold. Here are six of our favorites – did we miss any of yours?

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Has 'Idol' saved J.Lo, or has J.Lo saved 'Idol'?

Did you hear that People magazine has named Jennifer Lopez the World's Most Beautiful Woman?! Not bad for someone who, just last year, had a floundering music and movie career and was barely a blip on the celebrity radar.

These days, Jennifer Lopez is at the top of her game thanks to her gig as a sensitive, emotional judge on “American Idol.” But let’s face it – J.Lo isn’t the only one benefiting from it! “American Idol’s” having a great season after last year’s mess – ratings are strong since “Jenny from the Block” got on board.

I think J.Lo is a GREAT addition to the judges panel. She really cares, and it shows! Also, Lopez has never looked better and she is having one heck of a year. Congratulations to her!

Katie Couric on leaving CBS: No decision yet

It was almost like old times again on the "Today" show Wednesday as Katie Couric sat down with her former co-host Matt Lauer.

Although her purpose for being there was to talk about her new book, "The Best Advice I Ever Got," of course Lauer had to ask her about the rumors that she's ready to depart "CBS Evening News" when her contract ends this summer.

The speculation has been building that Couric might have her sights set on a syndicated talk show - possibly even with Lauer himself, the New York Times suggested - but Couric repeatedly told her former co-worker that she still doesn't know what she's going to do, although she is excited about the future.

Adele: I don't have time to worry about weight

As image-driven as the entertainment business can be, Brit singer Adele says in the new issue of Rolling Stone that she'd rather keep the attention on her music.

While she has no problem with other artists showing off their style or physique, you won’t find the “Rolling in the Deep” songstress stripping down anytime soon.

"I love seeing Lady Gaga's boobs and bum. I love seeing Katy Perry's boobs and bum. Love it,” Adele says. “But that's not what my music is about. I don't make music for eyes. I make music for ears."

January Jones: Betty Draper was written for me

Can you imagine the world of "Mad Men" without Betty Draper? According to January Jones, who plays the character on the hit AMC show, the role didn't even exist before she came along.

"Matthew Weiner, the creator of the show, had no intention of showing Don Draper's home life," Jones says in the May issue of W magazine. "I read for Peggy two times—it was between me and Elisabeth Moss, who eventually got the part."

But apparently, Weiner couldn't get Jones out of his mind.
