Jason Mraz and Tristan Prettyman split

Love song crooner Jason Mraz is back to being single after revealing he and fiancée Tristan Prettyman called it quits and broke off their engagement.

The "I'm Yours" singer told The Daily Beast at the Samsung Hope for Children gala on Monday that he's in the midst of healing and wants to express the process through his music.

"My greatest mistake right now is, I've been clinging to my art," Mraz said. "In that, I have victory for my art and a great loss for my heart."

Is fame screwing with Emma Watson's dating life?

Emma Watson’s international fame as a “Harry Potter” star didn’t get her bullied out of Brown University as rumors suggested, but it might be putting a crimp in her social life.

The 21-year-old told the U.K.’s Sunday Times Style magazine that landing a date hasn’t been easy.

“I say to my friends, 'Why hasn't X called me? Why doesn't anyone ever pursue me?' They're like, 'Probably because they're intimidated.' It must be the fame wall," she told the magazine, according to Us Weekly. "It must be the circus that goes around me. Me, as a person, I find it hard to believe I would be intimidating.”

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Is 'The Voice' better than 'Idol'?

Tuesday night, the new singing competition that’s dominating our airwaves, “The Voice,” went live. With the show’s growing popularity, “The Voice” has been repeatedly compared to “American Idol,” which just wrapped up its 10th season. So I want to ask you – which show do you like better?

I think the shows are different enough that I can’t say one is better than the other, but “The Voice” is definitely a refreshing take on a now very familiar formula. I had a feeling it would be a hit after seeing a preview a few months ago and I’m thrilled for the show’s success and for my buddy Carson Daly, the host.

Speaking of Carson Daly, he will be on with me tonight as a "Showbiz Tonight" Newsmaker! We’re asking Carson about the comparisons of “The Voice” to “Idol,” and the chemistry between “The Voice” judges. Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton have a lot of people talking.

Shania Twain confirms 2-year Vegas gig

Shania Twain's headed for Vegas. The singer confirmed a two-year residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace during a press conference streamed on her website Wednesday.

Twain said she thought deeply about whether or not to make the commitment before agreeing to move to Sin City.

“I’ve learned how to commit myself and put that into healing rather than fear and anxiety,” said the country artist, who divorced her husband in 2010 after learning of his affair with her friend.

Edie Falco: WTH is Kim Kardashian?

There’s rarely a day where you can escape hearing about one Kardashian or another, but acclaimed actress Edie Falco would still like a primer on why one particular Kardashian’s so famous.

Falco, whose work in “The House of Blue Leaves” earned her a Tony nomination, told New York magazine’s Vulture that she thinks our celebrity obsession has turned into a fascination with people who haven’t done anything to warrant being a celebrity.

“There’s an obsession with famous people who, oftentimes, are not worthy of a million people knowing who they are and what they think,” the “Nurse Jackie” star said.

Captain America is losing his hair

Chris Evans seemed to have a full head of hair when he swung by Comic-Con last July (as seen in the picture above), but the “Captain America” actor says he’s losing his locks.

Evans told E! at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards that it’s actually making him a little worried about how he’ll pull off his superheroic duties as the franchise continues.

“I have no problem saying this, but I'm losing my hair,” Evans said. Considering that the actor, who turns 30 on Monday, signed on to do three "Captain America" movies as well as three "Avengers" movies, “The fear is this [role] can span 10 years so I can be doing this character until I’m 40.”
