Rebecca Ferguson has admitted that dating Zayn Malik was a 'blip'.
But it seems that his ex-girlfriend Rebecca Ferguson has less than fond memories of her relationship with the One Direction star.
We're not ENTIRELY sure what happened between the pair, but Beck has opened up about the short-lived romance - describing it as a 'blip.' Harsh.
Speaking to Heat radio about Zayn, the 27-year-old said: ''It’s a bit like, wow that’s a little blip in my life, what was I doing?
''I have a lot of respect for him and a lot of respect for the band, but that to me is a moment in my life that I just think, what was going on? You were having a breakdown.''
Rebecca, who dated Zayn for just three months, admitted that the pair are no longer in contact since the split. Obviously.
When discussing Zayn's tattoo of current girlfriend Perrie Edwards, Rebecca admitted that he'd never mentioned getting one of her. She said: ''I don’t think so, no. We were only together for 3 months that would have freaked me right out. I would call for help!"
Speaking about the age gap between them, Rebecca recently told The Independent: ''I was 23, he was 18. Of course, if it was a 23-year-old guy dating an 18-year-old girl, no one would have batted an eyelid, but this way around was a big deal, apparently.''
She added: ''I didn't realise that. I was just a hippy, free-loving person, but that's not a good thing to be in this industry. You can't just follow your heart."
The global superstar has recently proposed to the Little Mix star and is gearing up for a major wedding next year.

After a big push at Comic-Con, two viral videos released today signal the next wave of marketing for Godzilla. The first trailer drops tomorrow afternoon, but you can get a taste tonight with the first official images featuring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, and a relatively clear look at the monster himself. The reboot “pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.”
Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, Ken Watanabe, and David Strathairn also star. Godzilla opens May 16, 2014. Check out the new images after the jump.
Another hotel guest has confirmed pop brat Justin Bieber's nasty verbal abuse of a young woman at Perth's Hyatt Regency on Sunday.
Bieber verbally abused the woman by calling her a "beached whale" as she chatted with friends on the pool deck on Sunday afternoon.
Hotel guest Helen Robinett claimed she heard Bieber yell out the abuse.
"There were four young girls in bikinis," Robinett said.
"One girl who was gorgeous looking, with long dark hair and would have been about a size 14. Justin looked over at her and said 'What are you, Hawaiian or something?' She said 'No, I'm not'. Then he said 'You look like a beached whale' ... The girl said 'Are you serious' and he said 'You should go on The Biggest Loser.' ... The whole pool deck heard him call this beautiful young girl a beached whale. Everyone heard. And there was silence. It was almost like his security were used to it."
Robinett, who works in Melbourne as an image consultant and was in Perth on business, said the girl looked "deflated" after the abuse.
Robinett's daughter, Gabrielle Blair, 21, said the girl was "almost in tears" after the exchange.
A fellow guest said she arrived on the deck shortly before the incident began.
"I saw Bieber make a gesture with his hands to imitate a large belly as he spoke to the long haired girl and I heard him say something about The Biggest Loser and he was pointing at her - and I saw the girl and her friends leave, downcast," the woman said. "I also told her not to take any notice of him as she walked past us, I'm not sure if she heard me. Bieber seemed to think he was funny, he was smiling and looking to his burly minders for their approval."
Helen Robinett said she made a formal complaint to the hotel.
"They said the girl was OK and she was a Bieber fan. She may appear OK, but I work in styling and fashion, I know how women view their bodies, what body image issues women have.
"That kind of comment can have a serious impact and repercussion. That's why I'm so upset about it. I'm bloody angry. He's nothing without his fan base.
And he's abusing them. The girl next to me said 'I can't believe he just said that, he's my idol' and I said 'Well get yourself a new idol.'"
Robinett said Bieber also jumped into the pool from an upper level.
"There were two little boys having a ball around the pool and Justin said 'Hey kids, don't do this' and then jumped into the pool," Robinett said. "He did it twice. These impressionable little boys who saw him jumping into the pool and behaving like that. There was a heavily pregnant woman at the pool who heard him call someone else a beached whale, how did she feel hearing him say that?"
Robinett said Bieber's security team insisted no one at the pool take photographs - although she managed to snap Bieber and his entourage.
The hotel had closed the pool and gym for Bieber's use on Saturday, but he mixed with the public on Sunday - hours before his final Australian concert.
"I understand he's 19, he's surrounded by meat-heads who pander to his every need. He's immature, he needs leadership and guidance. He may come through, I hope he lives long enough to learn some lessons and do some good things," Robinett said.
"He needs some leadership. Someone should be guiding him to not speak to women like that."
Bieber flies out of Australia today; the Perth show was the last date of his world tour.
Hyatt Regency marketing communications manager Rachelle Taylor would not confirm the hotel had received a complaint.
"We are a hotel, we have hundreds of guests staying with us, we simply cannot speak on behalf of every single guest that comes in and interacts with another guest. But obviously we want all our guests to feel comfortable and not intimated by anyone. We have security, as do any VIP guests, they have their own security," she said.
Bieber's Australian tour promoter Frontier declined to comment.
Have you ever been insulted by a stranger?
Brandi called in to Watch What Happens Live to apologize for the comments she made. Andy said to Brandi, "As you can imagine I got a buttload of Tweets for you, wanting to know what you were thinking. Kenya Moore tweeted 'not all black women wear hair weaves, half the women on Beverly Hills Housewives are wearing some fake hair. Brandi could not be more ignorant.'"
Glanville explained herself: I know what I said was definitely inappropriate, but I say a lot of inappropriate things. I'm not racist Im just inappropriate 90 percent of the time! It definitely was not sensitive and I apologize to anyone I offended. But to be honest with you, my friends and I joke with each other this way and they're from all different backgrounds. So I'm sorry and I guess TV's not ready for the real Brandi, but should I censor myself? Is that gonna be exciting?
Andy does not let her off the hook so easily, asking her point-blank if what she said was racist. Glanville responds: "I think it was definitely inappropriate. I'm the least racist person of all time. I think the more you defend it, the more you look guilty, so I don't really have to say that much more. I am very sorry with whomever I defended. Defended. Offended. Sorry, my phone is ringing," says Glanville.
Led Zeppelin's entire catalogue is available on Spotify from today (December 11).
In a press conference, the music streaming site's founder and CEO Daniel Ek announced that the band's music will now be available to listen to for free on the service.
He also announced that Spotify will now be available for free on any platform – including mobiles and tablets. Spotify had previously required people to be paying subscribers to use its smartphone and tablet apps, with its free service restricted to desktop use only.
The move is seen as a response to competition from Apple's iTunes Radio, which is so far only available in the US.
"Today we’re giving people the best free music experience in the history of the smartphone and the tablet," Ek said in a statement. "Whether you're going to the gym, or having a party with friends. Just sit back and let Spotify serve you great music for every moment of your life."
Last week (December 3), Spotify announced a new website for artists, which will explain how its business model works and publish figures on how much musicians can expect to earn as the company grows.
It follows criticism from artists such as Thom Yorke, Foals and David Byrne, who spoke out against what they say are low royalty rates paid to artists who use the service.
Major artists still yet to sign up to Spotify include The Beatles and AC/DC.
Harry Styles is certainly living up to his reputation as a ladies man, after being spotted with 22 year old model Kara Rose Marshall, just hours after his date with Kendall Jenner.
The One Directioner enjoyed a date at a New York gay bar with Kim Kardashian's little sis Kendall on Monday, but according to The Sun, he then took Kara out for a lunch date on Tuesday.
Harry risks the wrath of the Kardashian clan if he messes Kendall around, as apparently Kim has already warned her off him.
A source told Now magazine: "Harry and Kendall have been circling each other since being introduced a few months ago and are finally taking that next step.
"But Kim knows all about being played and fears Kendall will get hurt by the king of heartbreakers."
We're guessing Harry shouldn't expect an invite to Kimye's wedding then.
Sources connected to the fetus tell TMZ ... Kevin's wife, Victoria Prince, is 6 months pregnant with their second kid. Check out the photos and behold the subtleties -- Victoria is wearing a jersey that says "Juan Moore Federline 6."
Kevin famously has 2 kids with ex-wife Britney Spears, and 2 more with baby mama Shar Jackson.
He truly is Papa ZOW!
The ‘Teen Mom’ star is ready take motherhood by the horns and ‘never leave’ her daughter’s side again. After the 17-month jail stint she says ‘changed her life,’ Amber is taking her ‘second chance’ to be a force in her 5-year old daughter Leah’s life.
Amber Portwood‘s prison stint has proven to be an unexpectedly positive experience. After serving 17 months behind bars, the reality star is ready to be called “mom” again after working hard to sober up and kick her demons for good — because she finally cares about the consequences. Amber revealed in a new interview that even her “lowest points” have surprisingly helped her become a better mom to her daughter, Leah Shirley.
Amber Portwood: Prison Gave Me A Second Chance To Be A Good Mom To Leah
Amber is clean, sober and back in Leah’s life — all thanks to prison. “Prison saved my life — and gave me a second chance at being a mother,” she revealed in a candid new interview with InTouch.
There’s no doubt Amber’s ready to regain her mom status. After sobering up and kicking her prescription pill addiction, the 23-year old is leaving her past behind her. “Before prison, I never thought about Leah,” she admitted. “I was addicted to drugs and didn’t care about anything else.”
The Indiana native is ready to take care of her daughter — and she’s more determined than ever. Amber promised Leah she would never leave her side again. “When I promised her that, I could see relief all over her face,” she explained to InTouch. “That’s when my life with her began again.”
Amber Portwood Credits Daughter Leah For Early Jail Release
Amber’s second chance at motherhood came sooner than expected. The reality star’s determination to leave prison for good was her daughter Leah, as she didn’t want to miss any more moments with the precious 5-year old. Amber’s brother, Shawn Portwood, revealed Leah was her inspiration to leave jail. “She never wants to be in a position where she won’t be there for Leah again,” he previously told InTouch.
Amber is planning to get joint-custody of Leah with her ex Gary Shirley — and make up for lost time.
What do YOU think HollyMoms? Are you happy Amber and Leah are reunited? Do you think she should have joint-custody?
You think she will follow through?
It had been claimed he'd planned to break free from his One Direction bandmates to record a solo album in the coming year.
But a spokesperson for Harry Styles has hit back at the rumours, slamming reports suggesting the 19-year-old singer plans to work on his own projects in 2014 as 'complete nonsense'.
A representative for the chart-topping boyband told MailOnline: 'It's complete nonsense, of course.'
VH1's The Gossip Table panellist, HollywoodLife.com reporter Chloe Melas, had previously claimed the teen heartthrob was keen to brand out from his bandmates - Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik - next year to work on an individual record.
Speaking on The Gossip Table, she said: 'One Direction performed on Saturday Night Live over the weekend and their new album Midnight Memories is currently number one in the UK. It looks like a recipe that's going correctly.
'Simon Cowell, if you remember, paired all the boys together because separately they weren't as strong. But together they're stronger.
'I spoke to a music insider who told me Harry definitely wants to record a solo album in 2014. It doesn't mean he's going to leave One Direction fully though.'
Chloe pointed to the example of Harry staying in a different hotel to the rest of the boys when he was spotted with reality star Kendall Jenner in New York City over the weekend.
She expanded on her claims: 'Bear in mind when One Direction were in New York City over the weekend and Harry had his tryst with Kendall, he stayed at the Gansevoort Hotel.
'But the other band members stayed at another hotel, so he's already separated himself.'
But Chloe's The Gossip Table co-panellists were quick to point out that the quintet will spend much of next year on a worldwide arena tour, leaving Harry with very little time to pursue a solo project.
She hit back: 'When there's a will, there's a way. There have been rumblings about this for a while. Harry's rep is saying it's not true, but my source is very close to Harry.'
This is by no means the first time that Harry has been rumoured to be working on his own material, but his management have always strenuously denied the claims.
A spokesperson for One Direction previously told One Direction: 'Harry is not recording solo material. All of the band are working on tracks for their third album. Harry is putting together some ideas for the record.
'The boys sometimes work up ideas separately as well as working together, as they did last year. Niall for example recently collaborated with Tom and Dougie from McFly on new tracks.'
Forbes just posted their annual list of the top-earning women in music 2013, not to be confused with their top-earning musicians and top-earning celebrities lists, where Madonna dominates too
Madonna pulled in $125 million over the past year, making her music’s top earner of any genre or gender and the highest-paid celebrity of any stripe. She augments her income with merchandise sales, her Material Girl clothing line and her Truth or Dare fragrance. But Madge’s millions mostly came from the tail end of her MDNA Tour, which grossed $305 million.
Entertainment attorney Lori Landew of Fox Rothschild says…
She has global hits and they span decades and genres and generations. Madonna draws her audiences from so many pools and she has connected to so many people through her music that it should be no surprise that her tours are so successful.
01. Madonna – $125 million
02. Lady Gaga -$80 million
03. Taylor Swift – $55 million
04. Beyoncé – $53 million
05. Jennifer Lopez – $45 million
To make the list, Forbes looked at income from June 1st, 2012 through June 1st, 2013, using data sources including Pollstar, the RIAA, Nielsen SoundScan, managers, lawyers and many of the artists themselves. They took into account concert ticket sales, royalties for recorded music and publishing, merchandise sales, endorsement deals and other business ventures. The estimates reflect pretax income before deducting fees for agents, managers and lawyers.
Invincible Pictures is releasing a new UNCUT DVD edition of the controversial A Serbian Film, Bloody Disgusting exclusively learned. A free digital copy is included that may be redeemed exclusively via movie streaming service FlixFling.
After weathering the intense storm of controversy surrounding the film’s unflinching depictions of sex and violence a limited run of uncut DVDs was released. Fan response was incredibly strong and the limited edition A Serbian Film sold out rapidly. Since then, a growing chorus of fans demanded another print run. Invincible Pictures took notice and answered the call with the perfect stocking stuffer for the Holidays. Sources tell Bloody Disgusting that it wasn’t easy getting this uncut edition produced due to issues with the content.
“A Serbian Film is unquestionably the most controversial release of the past decade,” said Invincible Pictures’ CEO Tom Ashley. “This makes the uncut edition of A Serbian Film the perfect gift for the whole family — if your last name happens to be Manson! In all seriousness, this is director Srdjan Spasojevic’s uncensored masterpiece, and we’re making it widely available for fans who missed it the first time around.”
While Tex wasn’t a fan here on Bloody, I was. In fact, I think the movie is a work of art. A Serbian Film is a demented “Alice in Wonderland”-themed horror movie that’s absolutely stunning to look at. While the subject matter is disturbing, it’s a movie, it’s not real, and director Srdjan Spasojevic isn’t in the business of selling positive emotions to impressionable viewers. Clearly, the acts in Serbian are heinous. What bothers me are movies that are mean-spirited just for the sake of being mean-spirited. A Serbian Film is not that…
If you want to see the director’s full version, the uncut edition of A Serbian Film is available for purchase now on DVD with digital copy from Invincible Pictures, Amazon, and other retailers.
I miss ONTD's 'Serbian Film' posts
In the year of Vanity Fair’s centennial anniversary, contributing photographers kept with the magazine’s tradition of delivering iconic images month after month. From Kate Upton, photographed blowing out our birthday candle, by Annie Leibovitz, to Mark Seliger’s January portraits of comedy, to December’s portfolio of Liberty Ross on the beach, captured by Norman Jean Roy, here is a look back at the indelible photos of the year.

Mariah Carey has a pink room in her home full of Christmas trees festooned not just with standard ornaments, but with real, live pink peonies. That's just one tidbit TODAY's Tamron Hall picked up Wednesday when she was given a rare peek into the house Carey shares with husband Nick Cannon and their two children, Moroccan and Monroe.
"They're just live flowers; you can smell them!" Carey said, dressed in a cream negligee and robe, as the two sniffed the tree's decorations. "We did them because it matches the room."
Speaking of that room, Carey says it gets very little use — even though it's beautifully appointed with shiny pink pillows, a TV and fireplace, and those trees. "Nobody's ever really in here," she explained. "It's really for things (like) archived photographs ... personal items in here that are special to me. The kids don't even know this room exists yet."
But back to the reason for the seasonal visit: "Miss Christmas" (as Cannon calls Carey) also talked with Hall about her instant holiday classic "All I Want for Christmas Is You," a song that was released almost 20 years ago, which she wrote on a "little tiny keyboard."
"There was an idea from the label; the record label (said), 'Do a Christmas album,'" said Carey about the tune's genesis. "All I Want" was the "first song I wrote," and she said she "wanted to make the most festive song, that would always make people happy."
"Christmas and singing, even in difficult times as a kid ... those moments got me through," she said.
That said, not every member of her family may have felt that way — Carey held up a framed photo of herself as a child smiling next to Santa Claus, and admitted, "I think my brother punched Santa in the face when he was little. We've been through a lot together, Santa and I."
IDGAF. SO EXCITED
When Evangeline Lilly took the role of Tauriel in “The Hobbit” franchise, she had one condition – no Kate from “Lost”-esque problems.
“For the record, when I took this job, in 2011, I made one stipulation. That’s it. I just said… I swear to God, I said, ‘I will not do this film if you will not guarantee me one thing. You have to guarantee me there will be no love triangle.’ And there wasn’t. For the whole time I shot. For a year of shooting there was no love triangle,” Evangeline told Access Hollywood when we asked her at the film’s recent Los Angeles junket about how in “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” she has a blond and a brunette to choose from, just like Kate did on “Lost.”
“And then, I came back for reshoots in 2012 and they were like, ‘Well, we made a couple of alterations to some scenes and we added a couple more scenes,’” the actress continued. “And all of a sudden manifested a love triangle before my very eyes and the film was shot and I’m in and there’s no getting out and there was no escaping it.”
Obviously, the blond in the equation is Orlando Bloom’s Legolas, and the brunette is one of the dwarves – Aidan Turner’s Kili.
During our interview with the actress, she ran down the pros and cons of both of the two male creatures in Tauriel’s life.
“Obviously the dwarf is a bit short and makes me feel like a giant woman, but in the words of [singer] Kimya Dawson,’ I love girl giants,’ because every girl feels too big sometimes regardless of their size,” Evangeline said. “Legolas, he’s a bit stuffy, I think. He’s a little bit stuffy compared to Kili.”
“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” opens in theaters on Friday.
Jenelle Evans is pregnant, y'all.
E! News has confirmed that the Teen Mom 2 star is expecting a baby with boyfriend Nathan Griffith, their first child together and the reality star's second child overall. (In Touch Weekly first broke the story.)
A source tells us that the 21-year-old's pregnancy with Griffith was planned, explaining that the star told friends over the summer that the couple "were trying."
The insider doesn't know exactly how far along Jenelle is, but can also confirm that MTV has already filmed her first doctor's appointment for season five, and that the network plans on making Evans' pregnancy part of her upcoming storyline.
However, Jenelle has yet to gain custody of her firstborn, son Jace, from her mother Barbara, and the source adds that her new pregnancy isn't going to help Jenelle's effort to change her troubled image.
"It sucks. I know she wants to prove she's doing better, but having another baby without custody of her first isn't helping," the source says. To make this situation even more interesting, Evans is still legally married to Courtland Rogers, who is currently in jail, and E! News learns that there are "no plans to divorce."
Griffith also has a daughter, Emery, 2, from a previous relationship.
It's not too late to abort yourself, kid.
"If I had kids, my kids would hate me," Winfrey, 59, told THR. "They would have ended up on the equivalent of the Oprah show talking about me; because something [in my life] would have had to suffer and it would've probably been them."
Winfrey – who, at 14 gave birth to a baby who only lived for a number of weeks – said her attitude towards having more children has essentially been the same since her childhood best friend Gayle King, who's still her best friend today, had very different hopes and dreams.
"Gayle [now a mother of two] was the kind of kid who, in seventh grade home ec class, was writing down her name and the names of her children," Winfrey explained. "While she was having those kind of daydreams, I was having daydreams about how I could be Martin Luther King."
Still, Winfrey, one of the richest women on the planet and the first African-American female billionaire – who earned a Screen Actors Guild nomination Wednesday for her scene-stealing work in Lee Daniels' The Butler – said she does have plans to slow down her career.
Hoping to move from Chicago to Montecito by her 60th birthday in January, Winfrey held a "yard sale" in November and reportedly sold $600,000 worth of items for charity, including lamps, teapots and sofas.
She said, "It was about making space for a new life, which is what I'm getting ready to create for myself in California."
