Britney Spears gets 'my first glass of champagne' after being freed from her conservatorship

It's official: Britney Spears is free. A judge on Friday finally ended the pop star's conservatorship after 13 years, and on Monday, Spears wrote on Instagram that she had an "amazing weekend" and felt like she was "on cloud 9 the whole time." In fact, Spears said she "actually got my first glass of champagne" to celebrate and declared she'll be "celebrating my freedom and my B day for the next two months !!!!!!!!!!!" Spears also commented on videos of her elated fans outside the court, writing, "What a sight seeing so many people celebrating my victory." She didn't reveal what else might be next for her, though TMZ reported she "wants to go back in the studio."

Adele opens up about her divorce and weight loss in Oprah interview

Adele opened up about her divorce in a CBS special on Sunday, telling Oprah Winfrey she's "embarrassed that I didn't make my marriage work." When Winfrey asked if there's a specific moment when she realized things weren't working, she recalled taking a magazine personality quiz with her friends. One of the questions asked for "something that no one would ever know about you," and Adele says she shocked her friends by admitting, "I'm really not happy." The "Hello" singer also told Winfrey she lost around 100 pounds after working out to deal with her anxiety, and while she feels "bad" if this "made anyone feel horrible about themselves," it's "not my job to validate how people feel about their bodies."

Miles Teller shows up in Taylor Swift's new music video after vaccine controversy

Miles Teller stars in Taylor Swift's new video, and some Swifties aren't taking it all too well. On Monday, Swift dropped a Blake Lively-directed "I Bet You Think About Me" music video, which stars Teller as her ex. It wasn't clear when the video was shot, but his appearance raised eyebrows after The Daily Mail reported in September that Teller's series The Offer was shut down when he contracted COVID-19 after allegedly not being vaccinated. "I'm a little confused as to why she went with Teller who doesn't exactly have a great reputation," one fan wrote on the Taylor Swift subreddit, while another said, "I can't believe she chose to work with someone like that."

Kristen Stewart is developing a 'gay ghost-hunting reality show'

Kristen Stewart hopes to transition from possibly taking home an Oscar to making a gay ghost-hunting show, as all Academy Award-winners should. A New Yorker profile on Stewart, who could win Best Actress for playing Princess Diana in Spencer, reveals she's "developing a gay ghost-hunting reality show with a friend." Stewart described the show as a "paranormal romp in a queer space," adding, "Gay people love pretty things. So we are aiming for a richness." The Twilight star previously told the Los Angeles Times she's never personally had any paranormal encounters but did get some "spooky, spiritual feelings" working on Spencer, suggesting there were "moments where I kind of got the sign-off" from Princess Diana herself.

'House of Gucci' dialogue coach thinks Lady Gaga's Italian accent 'sounds more Russian'

Lady Gaga didn't exactly nail her House of Gucci accent, according to a House of Gucci dialogue coach. Gaga stars as Patrizia Reggiani in the movie, and she told British Vogue she spoke with the Italian accent she adopted for the movie for nine months. But dialect coach Francesca De Martini admitted to The Daily Beast, "I feel bad saying this, but her accent is not exactly an Italian accent, it sounds more Russian." De Martini says she was brought on the movie to specifically work with Salma Hayek on her accent and was "surprised" to find "there wasn't a dialogue coach on set." Well, if Gaga ends up winning an Oscar, we know who she won't be thanking.
