Much is being made about Kelly Clarkson‘s newer, thinner figure.

Now the singer herself is opening about it in the new Us Weekly.

Kelly dropped an impressive 30 pounds by working out five days per week and adopting a portion-controlled diet ... funny how that seems to work.

Check out her new body, and take that, Quicktrim.

Kelly Clarkson Weight Loss

Clarkson dropped the excess weight over the course of the past six months, with a source saying she “feels better about herself than she ever has.”

The singer, who remains 10 pounds shy of her goal weight, says that her boyfriend Brandon Blackstock helped inspire her to get back into shape.

“Brandon is the first guy ever who tells her how beautiful and sexy she is. She wants to look good for him,” a source told the celeb news publication.

Whatever her motivation, she looks outstanding.

After a jury found John Edwards not guilty on one count and declared itself deadlocked on another five charges on Thursday, the two-time Presidential candidate accepted full responsibility for his "sins" even as he maintained he did nothing illegal.

The politician, who is unlikely to be retried for alleged campaign finance fraud, spoke emotionally about his 4-year-old daughter with mistress Rielle Hunter.

Despite his sensational and stunning fall from grace, Edwards professed his love for "my precious Quinn, who I love more than any of you could ever imagine."

"I am so close to and so, so grateful for [her] ... I'm so grateful for Quinn."

It was Edwards' alleged efforts to use illegal campaign contributions to cover up his affair with Hunter that stood at the center of his federal corruption trial.

After praising the jury as "an exemplar of what jurors are supposed to do," he said, "I want to make sure that everyone hears from me and from my voice."

Vampire Diaries stars Zach Roerig and Candice Accola have broken up.

The two cast members, who kept their relationship off-screen very low-key, first got together in the fall of last year. Apparently it's over now, though.

No reason was given for the split, first reported by Us Weekly.

In October of last year, Accola tweeted a photo of Roerig, writing, "Cheering on my man at his second paddle board race! He kicked some major a**."

Roerig also tweeted a photo of Accola in a bikini on the beach with "Go Zach!" written across her stomach. "My number one cheerleader!" he wrote.

That was about it for public acknowledgements of their romance, however.

Accola, 25, plays bubbly vampire Caroline Forbes on the hit CW show. Roerig, 27, plays Matt Donovan, always a fan favorite ... in TVD death pools.

The show definitely keeps its romances in house. Paul Wesley is married to Season 3 guest star Torrey DeVitto, while Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder are also a couple.

Maybe this zombie apocalypse thing really does have legs.

In another odd, horrifying incident of human flesh-eating, Alexander Kinyua, a student in Maryland, allegedly admitted to devouring his roommate's brain and heart.

The 21-year-old Morgan State University student says that he killed Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie, who was reported missing last Friday, cops told the Baltimore Sun.

Kinyua's father called police late Tuesday night when Kinyua's brother reportedly found human remains, a head and two hands, in a metal tin in the basement.

The brother and father left the room for a short time, but when they came back, the body parts had been moved and Alexander Kinyua was washing out the tin.

Officers searched the house and arrested Kinyua.

The man then allegedly confessed a shocking revelation eerily reminiscent of Rudy Eugene: not only had he killed Agyei-Kodie by cutting him up with a knife and then dismembered him, he ingested parts of the victim's brain and all of his heart.

He allegedly dropped most of the remains in a dumpster.

It's yet unclear what Kinyua's motive may have been (no, there were no bath salts involved), but he was charged with first-degree murder on Wednesday.

The gruesome case comes on the heels of a similar attack in Miami, in which Rudy Eugene was killed after eating homeless man Ronald Poppo's face.

The cast of Jersey Shore - pregnant Snooki included - was spotted Thursday by celebrity gossip photographers moving back into the Seaside Cesspool.

Does this mean she's having a change of heart about getting her own place?

The baby-bumpin' poof-head says she has no plans to stay in the house, but reports and pics from the scene say otherwise. So what's the deal?

"You know how they have to make it look for editing," a source said.

"What they will probably do is have her there for a day or two. But then she'll move into the new place. Trust me, she will not be living in that house."

A source told us not even two weeks ago that Snooki will likely live in a nearby house in Seaside Heights, N.J. Close enough to hang out, but away from the epicenter.

She has repeatedly said that the house is no place for a pregnant woman. Or anyone who values their health or brain cells even a little bit. Smart.

Snooki, who's pregnant with a boy, is due in September.

Despite occasional criticism, protests and terrorist threats across Asia, Lady Gaga remains one of the world's most popular celebs and the undisputed Queen of Twitter.

With 25 million followers, she retains the top spot over Justin Bieber. The 22.5 million Beliebers have a ways to go if they want to catch up to the Little Monsters.

The 26-year-old star reached the milestone last night. "#25milliontweetymonsters wow! I'm officially feeling like the luckiest girl in the world today," she tweeted.

"Last sold out show in Singapore in 2 hrs!"

Lady Gaga Will Cut You

Bieber, 18, is not far behind Gaga, and his growth rate nearly matches hers. Months ago, the pop sensations were at 20 and 18 million followers, respectively.

A whopping 20.4 million follow Katy Perry, Rihanna has around 19.5 million devotees and Britney Spears has 17.2 million, meaning pop stars own spots 1-5.

President Obama, with 16 million, is ahead of Kim Kardashian, whose management team spouts off vapid nonsense and plugs useless crap to 14.8 million "fans."

On Friday, boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. begins a three-month jail sentence in Las Vegas, Nev., for his recent domestic violence conviction.

The undefeated boxer's legal and ring advisers weren't immediately commenting about Mayweather's scheduled Friday morning surrender in court.

Mayweather's conviction stems from a hair-pulling, arm-twisting attack on Josie Harris, the mother of three of his children, in September 2010.

Mayweather, whose arrest wasn't his last, pleaded guilty last December to reduced charges in the altercation with Josie Harris while their two sons watched.

In January, Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa agreed to let Mayweather remain free long enough to fight Miguel Cotto on May 5 at the MGM Grand hotel.

Mayweather won the bout. Harris' lawyer isn't commenting on Mayweather's scheduled surrender. Harris and the children now live in Southern California.

Hopefully the time in jail gives Floyd time to reflect, allowing him to return with a renewed sense of purpose and fresh excuses for not fighting Manny Pacquiao.

Those glass walls. They'll get you every time.

While many of his fans were injured in Norway, Justin Bieber himself is laughing off a minor concussion he suffered mid-concert in Paris.

Biebs ran into a glass wall in between songs and felt a little disoriented. He finished the concert fine, then passed out briefly in his dressing room afterward.

In typical fashion, he's laughing it off.

Biebs

"i will see u again Glass. I will have my revenge. BIEBER vs GLASS. MGM LAS VEGAS 2013. lol. #GottaLaughAtYourself," the 18-year-old tweeted.

Bieber's manager Scooter Braun similarly wrote: "jb is gonna be fine. things happen. he is a trooper. canadian hockey player. tough kid. no issue."

"now that he is ok i can say this... BIEBER and GLASS... they dont like eachother," Scooter continued. "#ItHappenedAgain... but the fact that he still went and finished the last song, KILLED IT ... That was impressive. #TrueProfessional"

And actually pretty self-deprecating and funny no less.

A week after Charlie Sheen's troubled ex-wife said she was happy to put "this chapter of her life behind her," Brooke Mueller is back in rehab once again.

TMZ reported and her camp confirmed to E! News that the mother of two has relapsed and is seeking treatment. She actually started a few weeks ago.

Brooke Mueller, who was officially sentenced to probation last week for felony drug possession, is currently at an undisclosed, in-treatment facility.

Interestingly, Sheen of all people played a role in her getting help.

Brooke recently came to his L.A. home and seemed out of it, so much so that Charlie felt she needed to be checked out by an addiction specialist.

She left before Charlie could convince her to be examined by a professional, but Brooke later decided to seek substance abuse treatment on her own.

Brooke previously entered rehab earlier this year following her December cocaine arrest in Aspen, Colo., for which she was sentenced to probation.

As part of her plea deal, she's required to submit to random urine tests; a failed test could land her in jail. It's unclear if she's actually failed one, however.

UPDATE, 6/2: Brooke's lawyer says her trip to rehab was pre-scheduled and a precautionary measure; her probation will not be violate as a result.

Yale Galanter vehemently denies his client failed a drug test.

Luka Rocco Magnotta, a former adult film actor, is alleged to have brutally killed a man in Montreal and shipped at least two body parts to political parties in Canada.

He is now the subject of an international manhunt.

Thursday morning, INTERPOL issued an international arrest warrant for Magnotta, who may have fled overseas, with France as one possible destination.

He is still at large as of this report.

The global bulletin follows a Canada-wide warrant issued by Montreal police hours after officers first entered the 29-year-old suspect's blood-soaked apartment.

It was the scene of one of the most gruesome killings in Montreal in recent memory. Investigators found a torso left in a suitcase, while a hand and foot were mailed to the Ottawa offices of the Liberal and Conservative parties.

Police have obtained a video allegedly depicting the crime, and are taking steps to have it removed from a website where it was posted.

As authorities search for Magnotta, the young man's past has come under the microscope and Canadians are trying to come to terms with what kind of person might have committed such gruesome acts. Who is Luka Rocco Magnotta?
