If Bradley Cooper liked it, he would have put a ring on it.

That's the angle Renee Zellweger took over the last few weeks, as friends say this famous couple recently split due to the actress' desire to get married.

"She wanted a ring, and he just wasn't ready to propose," a source tells Pop Eater.

Bradley Cooper and Renee Zellweger

Both Cooper and Zellweger have been married before, with the former divorcing Jennifer Esposito in 2007 after just four months as husband and wife.

Renee was ready to give it another try with Bradley," an insider says. "She's 41 and has an Oscar. She's starting to think about children and settling down, while Bradley loves his life exactly as it is. It's taken him a long time to be an A-list actor, and he's enjoying all the perks, fame and opportunities that have come his way following The Hangover."

Along those lines, check out this teaser trailer for The Hangover 2. It comes out on May 26.

While Charlie Sheen is finding new and ridiculous ways to rake in millions, his famous father continues to hope and pray for his son.

In an interview with Great Britian's Telegraph Magazine this week, Martin Sheen says Charlie is "emotionally" a child, explaining:

"Because when you're addicted, you don't grow emotionally. So when you get clean and sober, you're starting at the moment you started using drugs or alcohol. You're emotionally crippled."

Admitting he's experienced "psychotic episodes in public," Martin says he can relate to "what Charlie is going through. And when you do something like that, that is out of control, that's the most difficult thing. You have to have courage."

Martin has not given up hope, however.

"Faith can help all of us. Addiction is the dark side. It's a reflection of despair. And it's fed by all the other negativity."

At Saturday night's GLAAD Media Awards, Ricky Martin walked on stage and accepted the Vito Russo Award, which honors openly gay and lesbian entertainers.

The honor arrived one year after the singer admitted to the world that he's gay.

"I've been through an intense spiritual process for the last five years, especially the last two years," he told reporters at the event. "I needed to share it with the world."

Adding that "I've only started" in his mission to spread GLADD's message of love and acceptance, he added:

"Let's share the love! Let's go to Mexico! Let's go to Columbia! Let's go to Argentina! Let's go to Chile! Let's go to Brazil! We need you GLAAD – we need you down there. I can help, I can do it! I'll be part of it. I want to be part of it."

While no dates have been announced yet, the Grammy-winner is prepared to do just this via an upcoming tour.

Congratulations are in order for Melanie Brown and Stephen Belafonte. The couple is expecting its first child this year.

Sources say the former Spice Girl will give birth to her third baby this summer. She has a 12-year-old daughter named Phoenix and a three-year-old daughter named Iris from previous relationships.

"We're really thrilled," Brown told Great Britain's Hello Magazine. "We wouldn't have planned and waited for four years to have a baby if we weren't excited and ready for it."

Interestingly, Brown's former singing pals, Emma Bunton and Victoria Beckham, are also pregnant. Forget "zigazig ha." Looks like what these women want, what they really, really want, is to have a family.

Will X mark the judging spot for Nicki Minaj?

Insiders tell The New York Post that Simon Cowell has met with this hip hop star about coming on board The X-Factor this fall as a judge. She would join recently-announced producer L.A. Reid on the panel if she agreed to make the move.

Nicki Minaj: The Devil?

"Simon thinks Nicki is fantastic. She's sassy, she looks great and she has bags of personality," a source tells the newspaper. "Nicki has a large following and she fits well with the ethos of the show, which plans to usher in a new generation of musical talent."

Auditions for The X-Factor kick off on March 27.

This would be an unusual gig for Minaj to accept, considering her current popularity. Most singers join a reality show to revive a career (see Aguilera, Christina on The Voice and Lopez, Jennifer on American Idol). Other names under consideration include Tommy Mottola, Nicole Scherzinger and Cheryl Cole.

UPDATE: We can now answer the question posed in the headline: No. Sources have said Minaj will NOT serve as a judge.

For those who thought it would never be appropriate to compare Justin Bieber with Michael Jackson, we have three words for you: never say never.

The 17-year old icon has set a new box office record with his first foray on to the big screen, surpassing the King of Pop in the process. Through yesterday, Bieber's Never Say Never has earned $72.2 million domestically, becoming the most successful concert-themed film of all-time in the United States.

Bieber-gasm

Jackson's This Is It brought in $72.1 million.

Bieber will never catch MJ on a worldwide basis, however.

This Is It, which chronicled Jackson's final tour preparations prior to his June 2009 passing, has garnered an unfathomable $189.1 overseas. Bieber's biopic has only grossed $10.8 million outside America.

Another point of historical comparison: Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour earned $5 million internationally in 2008 and $65 domestically.

She's been mocked endlessly on the Internet, but Rebecca Black has a major fan in... Simon Cowell?!?

Yes, the formerly harsh American Idol judge and world famous record producer says he's a big fan of this 13-year old, who has endured one hateful comment after another from anyone who has listened to the single "Friday."

"I love her [and] the fact that she's gotten so much publicity," Cowell tells People. "People are so upset about the song, but I think it's hysterical... I want to meet her. Anyone who can create this much controversy within a week, I want to meet. I love people like that."

Simon has other business on the mind these days, too: he's bringing The X Factor to Fox in the fall and will soon be announcing stars to join L.A. Reid on the judges' table.

It's official: Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been confirmed for a key role in The Dark Knight Rises.

The Inception star will take on the character of Alberto Falcone in the summer 2012 blockbuster, the son of mafia boss Carmine Falcone, played by Tom Wilkinson in Batman Begins.

A source close to the film says the villain known as "The Holiday Killer" returns to Gotham "to take over the underworld once ruled by his father before the arrival of Batman."

Anne Hathway will play Catwoman in this installment of the franchise, while Juno Temple and Marion Cotillard will also appear. The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters on July 20, 2012.

UPDATE: Sources now say Gordon-Levitt is on board, but will NOT portray The Holiday Killer. We'll have more on this role as news breaks.

Victoria Jackson has sounded off again.

Last month, the former Saturday Night Live member sung about how Barack Obama is clearly a Communist. Now, in a column for World Net Daily, Jackson writes that "progressives, communists, liberals, globalists and Muslims want to destroy America" and then focuses on the most recent episode of Glee.

Heather Morris on Glee

It featured two male characters kissing, which led to this excerpt:

Sickening! And, besides shoving the gay thing down our throats, they made a mockery of Christians — again! I wonder what their agenda is? Hey, producers of Glee — what's your agenda? One-way tolerance?

Did Jackson just label a gay kiss "sickening" and then call out Glee producers for being intolerant? Forget rain on your wedding day or 10,000 spoons when one really needs a knife.

This is ironic, don't you think?

Does Victoria Jackson have a point?
