There was much surprise and rejoicing this past weekend when George Clooney popped the question.
I hesitate to use the word “finally” because it feels quite creepy to place upon someone who’s a long-time bachelor, be it male or female to Human Rights lawyer and Special Envoy to Syria Amal Alahmuddin. People have tried to answer the question of how a lawyer pulled off what countless other models and starlets couldn’t.
Page Six did a write-up on Ms. Alahmuddin this past Tuesday, framing a potential theory as to what happened: that she played hard to get.
“Clooney asked her out for dinner and she put him off twice, saying she was too busy, before accepting the third time,” the source told Page Six. “She was operating on the lines of “treat ‘em mean, keep ‘em keen” and clearly it worked. Clooney was beguiled by her and she had the upper hand. What he likes about her is that she treats him normally.”
It makes sense and might hold some truth. But I still believe this all happened for one very simple reason: strong, smart, beautiful women is a brand of sexy that most men on this planet cannot resist. I know I wouldn’t have if I were him. Congrats to the new couple however it came to be.

George Clooney has shocked the world by proposing to his girlfriend of a few months, Amal Alamuddin. Amal is 36, which is 16 years George’s junior.
A source tells People: “George and Amal are trying to keep things very low-key but they also aren’t really trying to hide this, it doesn’t seem. I think it’s like they want the people they love to know that this is real, that they plan on being together forever.”
The engagement is recent and the couple doesn’t appear to have any wedding plans in the works yet. Amal was wearing a ring on her left finger when she was spotted at dinner with George, Cindy Crawford and Cindy’s husband.
“Two sources say that witnesses at another L.A. restaurant, Craig’s, reported seeing the pair apparently celebrating their engagement with friends on Wednesday night, with Alamuddin sporting a “huge ring,” according to one.
George and his fiancé were first spotted in London in October. In March, the two went on a trip to Tanzania, where they were snapped getting cozy during a safari, and they also visited the Seychelles. A few days later, the couple stepped out together in New York City for dinner at a French restaurant.
Amal is a very accomplished attorney who is “on his level,” according to a source.
I knew George wasn’t going to be a playa for life. He doesn’t have kids and he wants someone around to change his diapers when he’s in a retirement home. That’s smart! Congrats to the lovely couple.

The puns, the puns…they are too many to count! Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas, better known as Snow White and Prince Charming from Once Upon A Time, got married on Saturday after a year of dating and half that time in the engagement period.
Mazeltov to the lovely couple, first of all! And to the baby they’ll soon have. You also probably remember Mr. Dallas (like I do) as the original Fandral, member of the Warriors 3, from the first Thor. But that’s just my geeky self.
Anyway, the ceremony as E! put it, sounded really sweet. “They were surrounded by their nearest and dearest friends and kept it very intimate and simple.” A source (I’m guessing waitstaff or possibly really nosy neighbor) told E!. I
t all sounded to me like something I would probably do when I get married. Small guest list, cocktail reception outside just as the sun’s setting, Spanish guitar playing “Rock The Casbah” and Sam Cooke (how I’d do the music anyhow). All nicely casual and sweet.
The story goes on to mention how the relationship between Goodwin and Dallas bloomed from the first moment they saw each other on set in 2011. I have to warn you though, reading it will cause cavities it’s that sweet. On the plus side, if you’re reading this in the morning, at least you won’t need coffee.

Drake has had a boner for Rihanna from the time that he barely hit the scene and he recently told Rolling Stone that Rihanna is his fantasy. Shortly after the interview was published, Riri and Drizzy began hanging out together.
Drake is on tour and Rihanna’s been traveling with him. After having a quickie in a men’s bathroom a few days ago, allegedly, Rihanna and Drake are officially. TMZ says the couple is “officially exclusive.”
“They’ve decided to give it a serious shot. We’re told Rihanna wants to spend as much time with Drake as her schedule will allow — because he treats her better than anyone she’s ever been with.
“The pair have been virtually inseparable while Drake’s been touring in Europe — we’re told Rihanna has spent every single night with him since she arrived. As for Drake, he’s smitten — one source said “he’s in the best mood he’s been in a long time.”
I think this relationship is going to last about as long as Juan Pablo’s, but Rihanna’s been single for years and years. She deserves to have some fun with someone who has been obsessed with her for a long time as well. Congrats?
Tags: Celebrity Couples, Lupita Nyongo
Lupita Nyong’o has been dating a Somalian rapper named K’Naan since September. The gorgeous Oscar winner had everyone thinking that she was with Jared Leto.
The New York-based couple has bonded over their similar interests.
“She loves his humanitarianism. They’d both passionate about African issues,” a friend tells UsWeekly. The 36-year-old rapper has two sons with his ex-wife and has reportedly been in prison before, according to Wendy Williams. Lupita “hasn’t met his kids” yet and the couple is taking things slow.
After fellow Oscar winner Jared Leto called her his “future ex wife” during his Independent Spirit Awards acceptance speech, rumors of romance between the two blossomed. “When I read these rumors, they’re so detailed that even I start to question whether they’re true or not,” Nyong’o joked on The Ellen Show last month.
I don’t think K’Naan is good enough for Lupita, but I also don’t think their relationship is going to last. Her career is going to explode now that she’s won an Oscar and is a fashion icon. Everyone is going to try to date her and I think she’ll upgrade in no time.

Jelena is on again and Justin Bieber’s posted videos of the couple dancing together to prove it. I like this couple and I love these videos that Justin posted on his Instagram. Justin and Selena should tour together, or perform together sometime.
This is sexy. I love John Legend’s song that’s playing in the background. Selena looks hot. They’re both doing a great job with their choreography. I swear they are never going to leave each other alone. They’re going to keep getting back together and breaking up over and over again until they’re married. Jelena is what Rihanna and Chris Brown used to be until Breezy got smart enough to ditch Riri for good.
Justin has since removed the videos from his Instagram!
