After a whirlwind trip to Cannes, France last week and losing sentimental items and trust to TSA on her trip home, Kim Kardashian was looking to let loose.

So she did. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star made a beeline for Beyonce's concert at Revel's Ovation Hall in Atlantic City, N.J., on Sunday night.

In addition to dancing and singing along to Bey's chart-topping hits, Kim got a chance to chat with the woman of the evening herself backstage. OMG!

  • Casual Beyonce
  • Kim in Kannes

The two have plenty to discuss, of course. Beyonce's husband of four years, Jay-Z, is best friends with Kanye West, Kardashian's serious boyfriend.

Says a source klose to Kim:

"Kim thought it was such a great show. There's always some random rumors there is tension between them and there totally isn't! Kim had so much fun."

B's concert weekend, her first since becoming a mom, drew many big names. Michelle, Sasha and Malia Obama were among other notable attendees.

During Saturday's performance (she did four shows there), Beyonce revealed that she's lost 60 pounds since giving birth to baby Blue Ivy Carter.

"Y'all have no idea how hard I worked! They had me on that treadmill. I ate lettuce!" she told her fans. "Now tonight I'm gonna get chocolate wasted!"

That's probably what Kim says about ... chocolate also.

Ailing American Idol winner Phillip Phillips will not have his long overdue kidney surgery today as scheduled, because he's burning up with a fever.

As if he weren't enduring enough turmoil, Phillips now has a bad sinus infection that has triggered a high fever. As a result, surgeons will not operate.

We're told the surgery has been rescheduled for early next week.

Phillip has a serious congenital kidney condition that produces kidney stones so large he cannot pass them. This has all but debilitated his right kidney.

He's been through eight surgeries to date, and battled through almost the entire season of American Idol with a stent that was inserted two months ago.

This caused Phillip extreme, continuous pain ... almost as bad as what this young Jessica Sanchez fan went through a week ago Wednesday.

Get well soon P-squared.

Agent K and Agent J returned with a vengeance this week.

Men in Black 3 won the weekend box office as fans flocked to see Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin kick alien ass. Almost as impressive as the three leads? All of the effects that made the blockbuster so visually dazzling.

As is often the case, it's the brilliance taking place behind the scenes that truly makes the magic happen. Case in point: The motorcycle chase scene. Check out this exclusive video from our friends at Movie Fanatic to see how it came together:

Jessica Biel is looking forward to her newest role: wife.

"To me, nothing will really change, because I'm almost never home," the Total Recall actress told Gala. "But when I am home, I enjoy cooking."

Overall, once they tie the knot (possibly in a big summer wedding), "I don't think our marriage will change anything," the 30-year-old says.

While that may turn out not to be true, she admits "it will be a challenge finding a balance between private life, family and work ... I'm ready."

Timberlake, Biel

Biel also describes herself as "someone who lets things happen naturally," saying she is not sure if she wants to have a child right away.

"For me, getting married doesn't mean limiting ourselves to some predefined idea. Rather, it's an opportunity to explore new things in life."

And while fans may ogle Timberlake's good looks and hot moves, for Biel, there are three distinct qualities she finds admirable in Justin.

"The ability to communicate well ... to be able to express his feelings," she says of her future husband. "Then, loyalty. And, finally, honesty."

These two are totally the next Will and Jada Smith.

Just one day after a paparazzo accused Justin Bieber of battery, the teen heart throb has released his latest single, entitled "Die In Your Arms."

While it's not a cover of "(I Just) Died In Your Arms" by Cutting Crew (sadly), the new track by the Bieb does have a decidedly retro feel to it.

Scooter Braun, Bieber's manager, described the song on Twitter as having an "Old School Jackson 5 vibe." Listen below and see if you agree:

"Die In Your Arms" is the eighth track on Believe, Bieber's third studio release.

The much-hyped first single from the album, "Boyfriend", debuted at No. 2.

Unlike this latest song, "Boyfriend" was influenced by R&B and hip-hop as Justin continues to branch out, relatively, as his career progresses.

Believe drops June 19. What do you think of "Die in Your Arms"?

Madonna recently went out of her way to once again not-so-subtly remind everyone that she is, in fact, in a sense, an older version of Lady Gaga.

The queen of pop was performing "Express Yourself" at a rehearsal in Tel Aviv, Israel when she suddenly trotted out a cover of "Born This Way."

Of course, the two tracks blended seamlessly, reviving debate over whether Lady Gaga ripped off Madonna with her 2011 smash hit single.

Although she stayed mum on Gaga's song for some time, Madge eventually referred to it as "reductive" and undoubtedly influenced by her earlier work.

There is no actual feud here, but the whole thing seems to have an air of condescension, as if Madonna is wielding the cover over her head.

Or, on the other hand, is Madonna merely winking at the controversy while celebrating the younger performer and the highest form of flattery?

Guests at the surprise wedding of Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan wedding first saw the bride in her beautiful white gown, accompanied by the couple's dog, Beast.

The 1-year-old Puli, an Internet celebrity in his own right (he has 570,000 Facebook fans), wore his shaggy Hungarian sheepdog hair pinned up over his eyes.

Check out the photo of Beast and Chan in her wedding dress:

Priscilla Chan Wedding Dress

Beast first joined Chan and Zuckerberg in their Palo Alto, Calif., house last year, a month after he was born. He has since pooped on Zuckerberg's rug, visited the Facebook offices, and met the Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan, among other milestones.

Most of all, he has become an important and meaningful member of the family.

Both Zuckerberg and Chan, known as Dad and Mom on Beast's page, feature their beloved dog in the cover photos of their personal Facebook pages.

Walking mom down the aisle to marry dad? Doesn't get better than that.

By popular demand, and after garnering much criticism, a Florida county is putting the racy romance trilogy Fifty Shades of Grey back on library shelves.

Before reversing its decision, the Brevard County Library System was perhaps the most prominent of the many bans of the book occurring nationwide.

The county pulled 19 copies of the best-sellers from its bookshelves earlier this month, calling the popular novels by EL James "semi-pornographic."

  • 50 Shades Cover
  • 50 Shades EW Cover

Monday, the county announced that Fifty Shades of Grey would be available immediately through the library in response to requests from residents.

Library Services Director Cathy Schweinsberg said that the library was against censorship and was reviewing its selection criteria after negative feedback.

Public libraries in several states have banned the book, saying it's too steamy or poorly written. It's definitely the latter, though you can't ban it for that.

Bottom line: Sometimes you gotta lighten up and give the people what they want ... mind-numbingly cheesy, Twilight fan fiction-inspired softcore erotica.

As soon as Universal won the movie rights to the best-selling "mommy porn" trilogy, fans have partaken in an intense, ongoing fantasy casting game.

Georgia Davis, a 19-year-old sadly but accurately dubbed Britain’s Fattest Teenager, had to be rushed from her home to the hospital last week.

Rushed in a relative sense.

When the 840-pound Davis collapsed with breathing problems and chest pains in the bedroom of her home in South Wales, authorities underwent an amazing eight-hour operation to evacuate her out of the house and to a hospital.

A 40-man rescue team demolished the top half of her mom’s house with sledgehammers and a circular saw to make a 10-foot by 10-foot hole.

They also tore down an internal dividing wall so Georgia Davis could be removed from her back bedroom which had become her own prison.

Georgia was then airlifted out by crane on a special stretcher and transported via ambulance that had to be reinforced to take her weight.

She had been “effectively immobile for six months” after her weight rocketed this year, pushing her to the brink with major health problems.

She had weighed in at 460 pounds when she was just 15. Doctors told the Type 2 diabetic to lose at least 280 pounds or she would die.

Davis lost 200 pounds through diet and exercise, but ultimately relapsed and ballooned to 840 pounds, thanks to a 13,000 calorie-a-day diet.

For Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, it's all about putting family first and being by each other's side. Sounds cliche, but it really does work.

For nearly 15 years, in their case.

"We make the effort to always put the family first," Smith said at last weekend's Men in Black III premiere in New York City. "Being there for each other and being present with our kids ... I take being a parent very seriously."

Will, Jada Pinkett Smith

Will is father to Trey, 19, from a previous relationship, and Jaden, 13, and Willow, 11, with Jada. He considers his marriage and children his top priority, and flew back to L.A. from New York nearly every weekend while filming MIB3.

He and Jada will celebrate their 15th anniversary in December.

Despite rumors of their divorce lately - which Pinkett Smith recently said were ridiculous - Will says that, as a couple, they're as strong as ever.

"What's helped us is being supportive, no matter what the situation is," the actor says of his better half. "I'm so lucky to have someone like Jada."

"She's really an incredible woman, wife and mother."

What he loves the most about her is "she is just absolutely hardcore, like she absolutely is unfazed by the weight and the pressures of life. She is so calm and cool and easy in any situation. She can bear anything, and I just love that about her."
