The Bruno Mars "Moonshine Jungle World" tour will stop in Pittsburgh this summer with special guests Ellie Goulding and Fitz and the Tantrums. The soulful singer announced the tour and cities Tuesday on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." No dates have been released yet.
Royal officials in Britain have expressed disappointment that paparazzi shots of Prince William and his wife on a beach holiday in the Caribbean may be published by an Italian magazine, The Associated Press reports.
St. James's Palace said Tuesday that publishing the photos would be a "clear breach of the couple's right to privacy."
The photos reportedly show the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge -- the former Kate Middleton -- wearing a bikini and strolling on a beach with William on the island of Mustique.
The Italian gossip magazine Chi was reportedly planning to publish the pictures.
Last year, William and Kate went to court over a French gossip magazine's publication of topless photos of the duchess while the couple were on a holiday in the south of France.
Kate Upton's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover is very hot -- but during her photo shoot in Antarctica, all the model could think about was the freezing cold.
"It was definitely the hardest shoot I've ever done," Upton, 20, tells People. "The best as well -- Antarctica is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to. But I'm from Florida, so it was pretty painful."
The pain paid off, however: The perfect shot earned Upton her second consecutive SI cover, a distinction not seen since Tyra Banks covered back-to-back issues in 1996 and 1997.
"Everything about the picture is perfect," Swimsuit Issue editor MJ Day tells People. "The light, the background, the suit. It's different from what we've done in past years, and it was an exciting moment for us to have those photos work out."
Exciting, because Day and her crew didn't know if they'd get any usable photos out of their Antarctica shoot -- the first fashion shoot on the continent.
"It was difficult," Day admits. "First of all, it's cold, even though we were there in summer. The windchill was sub-zero -- the elements are really working against you." As the crew dealt with a whole host of issues -- batteries dying in the cold, crazy weather rolling in and out -- Upton was a total pro, Day says. "She never complained. She'd just say, 'OK, let's go do it again.' "
Because of costs and the planning required to go to Antarctica -- Day says this shoot was three years in the making -- Upton was the only model taken to the faraway locale.
"I knew that if I needed to bury someone in clothing, I needed her physique and curves to come through," Day explains. "So to bring her was obvious: I knew I could put a one-piece on her and she wouldn't look flat, she'd still look voluptuous and healthy and shapely and sexy."
Upton's now-infamous Canada Goose Chilliwack Bomber coat, paired with white Letarte by Lisa Cabrinha bottoms, was an afterthought. "I figured, why not a coat?" Day says. "We threw it on, took maybe 100 frames, then moved on. Then that night, the photographer and I were looking at photos, and he said, 'I don't know, could this be it?' It just had that energy."
First an engagement and now a baby on the way -- 2013 is shaping up to be an exciting year for Jamie-Lynn Sigler.
"The Guys With Kids" star, 31, is expecting a baby with her brand-new fiance, minor league baseball player Cutter Dykstra, her rep confirms to People.
"She couldn't be more excited!" a source tells People.
The actress, best known for her role on "The Sopranos," recently took to Twitter to announce her engagement to Dykstra, 23.
There's no wedding date set yet. But one thing's for certain: "Jamie can't wait to be a mom," the source adds.
Penelope Cruz is finally confirming some very exciting news, E! News reports.
The 38-year-old "To Rome With Love" star told Spanish TV station TVE she is "tremendously happy and excited" that she and Javier Bardem are expecting their second child.
Cruz, who is also mom to 2-year-old, Leo, cited her pregnancy as the reason she will not be able to attend the Goya Awards in Spain on Sunday.
