Rihanna on duet with Eminem: It was authentic

It’s not at all a coincidence that Rihanna, a former victim of domestic violence, is singing the vocals on Eminem’s chart-topping track about an abusive relationship, “Love the Way You Lie.”

When the Detroit rapper called her up to talk about a collaboration, the 22-year-old singer said she couldn’t say no.

“It’s something that we’ve both experienced on different sides, different ends of the table,” Rihanna told Access Hollywood. “It was authentic and it was real, it was believable for us to do a record like that, and it’s also something that needed to be done.”

Gwyneth Paltrow goes country with new song

Gwyneth Paltrow is already an Academy Award-winning actress and one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood, but it appears she wants to add "country music singer" to her resume.

Paltrow is the voice behind "Country Strong," a new single released Monday to country music radio stations nationwide. The song is the title track to the upcoming film of the same name, which stars Paltrow as a fallen country singer looking to make a comeback with the help of a young songwriter.

The "Country Strong" soundtrack will be released October 26, while the movie premieres in theaters December 22.

"Country Strong" isn't Paltrow's first foray into music. The actress teamed up with Huey Lewis to perform a cover of the Smokey Robinson classic "Cruisin'" for the 2000 film "Duets," according to TheBoot.com, where you can also check out Paltrow's vocals.

Jon and Kate Gosselin still in custody battle

Despite reports that Jon and Kate Gosselin have come upon a settlement in their custody battle over their eight kids, it looks like that hopeful bit of news hasn’t happened just yet.

Back in April, Jon Gosselin filed paperwork for primary custody of the Gosselin brood, alleging that Kate “abuses” the terms of the custody agreement in place and was an “absentee parent" because of her “Dancing with the Stars” stint, according to People. The magazine also reports that Kate currently has primary custody,  and Jon has to pay $21,000 a month in child support according to an agreement that was reached in arbitration.

While some have said that Jon and Kate have reached some sort of highly confidential agreement, Jon Gosselin’s attorney, Mary Vidas, tells CNN that a settlement in the custody battle has yet to be reached.

What's that on Jon Stewart's face?

Brad Pitt’s beard seems to have found its way to Jon Stewart’s face – although it’s cleaned up quite nicely.

Yes, Jon Stewart has joined the ranks of late-night hosts who cultivate facial hair in their off-hours, as he revealed when “The Daily Show” returned last night.

“Some of you may be wondering right now, ‘Hey! What happened to your face?" Stewart said about the obvious change. "Why is Jon Stewart’s evil cousin hosting the show?” FULL POST

The men tell all on 'The Bachelorette'

Last night's "Men Tell All" edition of "The Bachelorette" featured 14 rejected suitors talking about their experience on the show, but the star of last night's special was one suitor who was nowhere to be found.

Justin the wrestler, who was kicked off the show after it was revealed that he had two girlfriends on the side, didn't attend the reunion. That didn't stop the other suitors from going to town on him, describing him in words you can't say in a family-friendly blog.

Fourth-place finisher Kirk mentioned that while rooming with Justin in Iceland, he noticed the wrestler would lock himself in the bathroom with the sink and shower running late at night. He would find out after the fact that Justin was calling one of his girlfriends during that time. Jonathan the weatherman noted that Justin pledged early on that he would be the villain of this season.
