Brad Pitt is keeping himself busy - and embracing the English culture - while his better half Angelina Jolie is off filming Sleeping Beauty flick Maleficent.

If he’s not browsing in motorbike shops, the Hollywood star is visiting old pals in Birmingham and buying art from the UK's hippest graffiti artist Bambi.

After seeing examples of her work in Time, he snapped up canvases of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Queen Elizabeth II and Amy Winehouse.

Other celebrities, such as Adele, are said to own Bambi works as well. We always felt Kate Middleton pics were priceless. Apparently others agree!

A source told The Sun (UK) of Brad's pricey purchases:

“There is a lot of buzz about Bambi. As Brad’s here with the family for up to two years, it makes sense to fill the house with art by British artists."

“He already has a Banksy," whose work is similar to Bambi's, "which he bought for £1 million at a London auction, but had that shipped to LA.”

You know it is, right? Because sometimes you accumulate too much and have to divvy up art between all your homes. #richpeopleproblems

Whitney Houston passed away four and a half months ago, but the legendary singer has certainly not been forgotten.

She's back in the news now, in fact, because former American Idol champion Jordin Sparks has come out with the music video for "Celebrate," a duet Sparks sings with Whitney in the film Sparkle.

“What we wanted to do was make sure that this was a fun, happy video and just kind of dedicating it to her,” Jordin told Entertainment Tonight. “What better song to leave for people to hear than a song that is so upbeat and just so happy and so encouraging?”

Sparkle opens on August 17 and co-stars Derek Luke, Tika Sumpter, Omari Hardwick, Goapele and Carmen Ejogo show up in the video, the vocals for which were recorded just a few days before Whitney's tragic passing.

After the U.S. Supreme Court upheld Obamacare on Thursday, the President who fought and sacrificed for the controversial law praised the 5-4 ruling.

While the court placed limitations on Congress' power to regulate commerce and the U.S. government's ability to restrict state funds, the law stood.

The survival of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) - pejoratively or affectionately called Obamacare - signaled a major victory for Barack Obama.

"Today's decision was a victory for people all over this country whose lives are more secure because of this law," Obama said in a televised statement.

"I know the debate over this law has been divisive," he added. "It should be pretty clear that I didn't do this because it was good politics."

"I did it because I believe it is good for the country."

Obama encouraged on his Twitter account for Americans to share what the Supreme Court ruling means to them and some celebrities did just that.

Here's a sampling of some stars' reactions ...

Jason Alexander: "I applaud the Supreme Court and congratulate the President today. The bill isn't perfect, we can fix it, but it's the right direction."

Piers Morgan: "Must be a lot of people watching Obama's SCOTUS speech just now, thinking: 'That's why we voted for him.'"

Bette Midler: "Obama Health Care passes! The wing nuts must be boiling!"

Deepak Chopra: "I will be honored to be taxed for compassionate health care."

Following a disastrous stint on the Dallas Mavericks, which culminated in Lamar Odom being sent home and embarrassed by his poor play and lack of heart, this former world champion is returning to Los Angeles.

A trade is nearing completion that would send Mr. Khloe Kardashian to the Clippers (in a complicated, three-time scenario, Mo Williams would end up on the Utah Jazz in return), the team that drafted him fourth overall in 1999.

Odom, 32, averaged career lows in points, rebounds and minutes per game last year.

He averaged career highs, however, in reality show cameos and red carpet appearances.

The deal is expected to be finalized today, at which time E! cameramen will exchange high-fives and leave Dallas behind forever.

His anger not managed over a story this week that claimed he trashed a NYC hotel room, Charlie Sheen is considering legal action against those who reported the story.

As reported on Wednesday, a couple news outlets claimed that the actor went ballistic inside the Ritz-Carlton, partying the night away with prostitutes and pretty much acting like Charlie Sheen circa 2010.

But hotel representatives then came out and denied the story, inviting Sheen to stay there again any time in the future.

Charlie Sheen on GMA

Sheen spoke to TMZ about the allegations and said he's been so busy promoting his new show on FX (did you watch the Anger Management premiere? It was abysmal.) that he simply has no time for drugs and hookers.

He also shot down reports that he flipped out on his daughters after they refused to walk a red carpet with him and ex-wife Denise Richards for what Sheen hoped would be a PR-friendly photo op.

In response to these supposed lies, Sheen is considering a defamation lawsuit to get to the bottom of who initially leaked the bogus tale.

The Bachelorette contestant Sean Lowe may be the nicest guy ever.

Some new info about his life outside the reality show has been revealed, and unlike most of The Bachelorette spoilers you read in mid-season, it doesn't involve a breakup, a scandal, being on the show for the wrong reasons or anything like that.

On the contrary, it will simply make viewers love him even more.

According to Reality Steve, last summer, two high school friends in Sean's native Texas were both patients at Dallas Childrens Hospital and passed away tragically.

Both sets of parents had said that their daughters' favorite show was The Bachelor, so all of their friends, now college freshmen, get together to watch it.

At their parties centered around the show, they remember their friends and talk about the children's hospital charity they're all involved in and so on.

This week, Sean Lowe, who lives in Dallas, paid them a visit.

Kate Upton's recent photo shoot for GQ (and likely Terry Richardson's personal use) was so risque, she was asked to leave the famed Santa Monica Pier.

The 20-year-old stunner and her photo crew were asked by security officials to leave after the Cat Daddy video vixen suffered a wardrobe malfunction.

The Sports Illustrated cover model was at the pier and amusement park when her skimpy bathing suit snapped in mid-ride ... as almost seen here:

"We were on a ride where the seat spins while the actual ride is spinning, and I’m wearing a one-piece. And all of a sudden the whole entire top falls off!" Upton recalled.

"I’m holding myself, laughing, turning bright red, but a lot of people are watching, so they kicked us out of the Santa Monica pier – it was so embarrassing."

"You wouldn’t think that would happen with a one-piece!"

You wouldn't, no. But so it goes. Follow this link for the Kate Upton bikini photos that resulted from the shoot before she was shown the exit.

Oh, and watch more behind-the-scenes video below, too:

Casey Anthony faces the very real possibility of being hit with key questions about her daughter Caylee's death, despite her legal maneuvers to avoid doing so.

Zenaida Gonzalez is suing Casey for defamation after the Florida mom told cops that a woman with a similar name (Zanny the Nanny) had kidnapped Caylee.

During Casey's deposition in the proceedings last year, she refused to answer many questions posed by Gonzalez's lawyer, invoking fifth amendment privileges.

Casey is appealing her conviction for lying to police, and that's where it gets interesting, as Gonzalez's lawyers believe this will potentially help their case.

"She [Casey] has just filed her initial brief. If she wins her appeal and the charges are thrown out, there is no fifth amendment privilege," her attorney said.

"If she loses her appeal, she will have to talk as well because there is no criminal charge pending. Resolution of her appeal one way or the other is helpful to us."

The crux of Casey's appeal for lying to cops is that she was never given her Miranda rights when she was arrested on suspicion of murdering Caylee Anthony.
