Robin Thick Was Too High On Vicodin To Write 'Blurred Lines'
While being interrogated for allegedly copying Marvin Gaye's song "Got To Give It Up" to make "Blurred Lines," Robin Thicke confessed to being so high he couldn't have written the hit track.

Gaye's family filed a lawsuit against Thicke, Pharrell Williams and T.I., accusing them of ripping off the song. Thicke gave a deposition in April, saying he took more credit for "Blurred Lines" than he should have, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The singer explained, "To be honest... I was high on Vicodin and alcohol when I showed up at the studio. So my recollection is when we made the song, I...

Ryan Gosling & Eva Mendes Welcome Baby Girl
Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling have welcomed a baby girl. The actress gave birth to their daughter on Friday, according to People magazine.

The couple never publicly confirmed pregnancy reports, and earlier this year Mendes told daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres that the rumors were "ridiculous."

Mendes, 40, and Gosling, 33, began dating in 2011 after co-starring in the film "The Place Beyond The Pines." The pair has been notoriously private about their relationship, and even split up for a time allegedly because Gosling wouldn't propose.

An insider previously told People: “Their lives...

Actor Brian Cox managed to portray and convey an inner intensity as the demented doctor in "Manhunter" and of course Anthony Hopkins brought a sense of big grandiose to the captive killer in "Silence of the Lambs" and the two following films. But could else anyone fill the shoes of such an iconic serial killer? Enter Mads Mikkelsen. As a more calculated and intellectually...

Rosie O'Donnell Shows Off Massive Weight Loss On 'The View'
Seven years after leaving "The View," Rosie O'Donnell returned as a co-host on Monday, surprising fans with a much slimmer body (and with bare feet!)

The TV personality once tipped the scales at 237 pounds, but after having a heart attack in 2012 she knew she had to lose some weight and become healthier. However, the weight loss process has been mentally challenging.

"I'm not used to it yet. I still buy the wrong-sized clothes," she told the audience. "A lot of people who have never had weight issues their whole life would assume that losing weight and going from morbidly obese to being a...
