Kylie Minogue changes strategy for boyfriend

18 May 2015 12:05 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Kylie Minogue has changed her strategy to find a boyfriend - she wants a man who isn't that good looking. The 46-year-old singer - who dated her 'Neighbours' co-star Jason Donovan, musician Lenny Kravitz and actor Olivier Martinez in the past - has confessed she would be happy to go out with slightly overweight guys and thinks her previous boyfriends may have been ''too good-looking''. She explained: ''I don't mind grey hair, I don't mind bald or balding. I don't even mind a bit of a paunch. Maybe too good-looking is where I've been going wrong!'' Despite her failed relationships, the 'Locomotion' hitmaker doesn't count herself as ''unlucky in love'' and still has her heart set on settling down in the future. She said: ''I'm putting it out there. I would like to find someone. I'm a romantic. I'm not conventional. I don't think even as a »

Empire – the kind of smart, addictive show British TV doesn’t know how to make

12 May 2015 10:41 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

While British TV drama is either stuck in a Downton past or ticking off diversity boxes, the Us now has a slew of slick, sassy shows like Empire. Is this black drama’s big breakout moment?

Occasionally, a TV show stops being just something to watch and becomes a phenomenon. This is what has happened to Empire. While British TV is still struggling with diversity, across the Atlantic they’re getting on with it. The Fox series is a quota-busting, diversity-on-its-head, African-American show and proud of it. The audience figures are high, and rising – and 40% of them aren’t black. This at a time when it’s difficult to avoid the suspicion that some TV executives in the UK think black television – whatever that means these days – is a ratings killer. These are important debates, but they miss the point about Empire. The reason it’s cleaning up isn’t »

Chris Rock, Lenny Kravitz and Alicia Keys heading to Empire season 2

11 May 2015 11:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Empire was one of the biggest surprises of the 2014-2015 television season, and has a lot to live up to in its sophomore year. To help, Fox has looked for big stars to show up in guest appearances, and has already found three candidates: Chris Rock, Lenny Kravitz and Alicia Keys.

There’s no word on how the three will be used in the series, or how sizeable their roles will be. You can probably bet that Kravitz and Keys will sing a few tunes while they’re there though.

Common and Oprah Winfrey are also rumored to appear, though no official confirmation has been made. As the upfronts continue, we’ll likely hear more about Empire in the coming days. The show will return to Fox this fall on Wednesdays at 9 p.m.

Celebrities Who Prove You Can Be Friends With an Ex

7 May 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

We can probably all agree that staying friends with an ex isn't the easiest thing in the world to do, whether you're famous or not. While many high-profile breakups (and divorces in particular) can get nasty, there are a handful of former couples who have managed to put any animosity aside for the sake of their children, families, or just each other. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin told the world that they were "consciously uncoupling" while on a tropical vacation together, and have been spotted on dinner dates and family trips since their split. Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom announced that they amicably separated after three years of marriage, and just days later we saw the couple, with their son Flynn, sharing a sweet smooch. Even long-divorced couples like Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz, and Mick and Bianca Jagger have been able to remain civil »

Now that's what we call a pair of super friendly exes!  Despite being divorced, it appears things are still A.O.K. between Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz. The former couple share daughter Zoe Kravitz ... and in a new photo, all three look like one big happy family!   "Blood," the 50-year-old rocker captioned the photo above on Twitter.   In the shot, the 47-year-old actress sits in the middle, while her 26-year-old daughter and her former hubby kiss each of her cheeks!   The "Fly Away" rocker and the "Cosby Show" alum divorced back in 1993, and Lisa married "Game of Thrones" hunk Jason Momoa in 2007.   But it's clear Lenny and Lisa are still close. The two even attended the Met Gala on Monday night, where they walked the red carpet together!   Lenny and Lisa might be the coolest parents ever, but according to the "Divergent" star, even they embarrass their daughter on occasion! »
