The children took part in the wedding too. Angie walked the aisle with her 
eldest sons Maddox and Pax. Zahara and Vivienne threw petals. Shiloh and Knox served as ring bearers.

Divorce rumors have been dogging Beyonce and Jay Z for months now, but maybe that's exactly what they wanted. In an interview yesterday, Beyonce's dad Mathew Knowles said they created those rumors to drum up interest in their tour. And even Jay's elevator fight with Solange was faked. He said, "I know it was fake, because we've done this. From experience, there's a tour going on. So you sometimes have to ignite that tour. It's called a Jedi mind trick. The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot. Everyone's talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange's album sales went up 200%."

In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day has it that the next "Dancing with the Stars" cast will include:  "Pretty Little Liars" star Janel Parrish (she plays Mona), Olympian Lolo Jones, actor Antonio Sabato Jr., and 17-year-old Sadie Robertson from "Duck Dynasty". ABC won't officially announce the cast until next Thursday.

A ton of hip-hop artists have teamed up to record "Don't Shoot" a commentary on the tragic situation in Ferguson, Missouri.

Almost 10 years after one of Hollywood’s hottest couples first met and hooked up on-screen together, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are going to co-star in a new film written and directed by Angelina. We have heard that they shares some “crazy sex scenes” in the movie, which is being filmed right down the street from one of their family’s home in the Republic of Malta. In May, Jolie told the BBC that she’s ready to retire from acting, therefore "By the Sea," which is set to hit theaters in 2015, could be her final role. Filming begins in September and is slated to last approximately 10 weeks. Oscar winners Pitt and Jolie will play a married couple in the film, but few other details have been released thus far.

On his show Wednesday night, Jimmy Kimmel had Jennifer Aniston act out some "Friends" fan fiction he wrote, in an exact replica of the kitchen from "Friends" with a laugh track button and appearances by Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow.

The open-mouth kiss between Britney Spears and Madonna at the 2003 "MTV Video Music Awards" is legendary. So legendary, in fact, that Iggy Azalea didn't want to touch it at this year's show. Rita Ora wanted to make out with Iggy during their performance of "Black Widow", but Iggy refused. Rita says, "I said to Iggy we should just kiss during our performance. She told me that would be crazy because it's already been done."

This isn't likely to squash the rumors that French Montana is only dating Khloe Kardashian for the exposure. Sources say he's making piles of money for appearing on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" and he'll make even more for the spin-off "Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons". Kris Jenner signed him to a sweet deal, which E! isn't happy about. But apparently, it's her call, not theirs. The source says, "He's expensive, and some people at E! just don't think he's worth the money. I've heard execs moaning about it."

50 Cent thinks Eminem is the best rapper on the planet right now. He says, "Hip-hop is black music, without question. Unfortunately, for some people it's tough to accept that you got a white artist that does it better than black artists. It is what it is. You can get whoever you feel like is the best black artist and stand them face-to-face in a room with Em and he'll eat that ni*** alive. Right now, if you had them prepare themselves and come battle, I'd bet everything I have, that the other guy is meatloaf. Any other competition we would put these artists in, Eminem has obviously surpassed them." This was from an interview that aired last night on "Chronicals" for the Music Choice Play channel.

Chelsea Handler closed out her final show of "Chelsea Lately" by thanking all the stars who showed up to celebrate with her, including ex-lover 50 Cent. Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston, and Mary McCormack also staged an "intervention" for Chelsea. Dozens of stars like Gwen Stefani, Trace Adkins, Gerard Butler, Josh Gad and Fergie sang a song called "Goodbye To E!" to the tune of "We Are The World." But what everyone is talking about is the shower scene with Ellen DeGeneres. And a message to her fans, "I never really got a good chance to be serious and say 'thank you' and I want you to know that I am grateful for this career. I'll see you on Netflix." 

BET has apologized for an offensive joke about Beyonce's daughter Blue Ivy's hair. The scripted joke was read by guest Karrueche Tran but she immediately apologized. That didn't matter, fans beat her up on social media. But it seems the power of Beyonce is evident! "106 & Park" has shut down for the rest of the week. However, producers say that they had already planned this hiatus. 

"TV Guide" is reporting that a "Full House" revival is in the works and a lot of the original cast members are involved. In fact, everyone is down except there's no word on Lori Loughlin, or Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. It's unclear how close this is to actually happening, but it sounds serious enough that it could be pitched to networks.

Nick Cannon admitted yesterday that he and Mariah Carey are separated. He said, "There is trouble in paradise. We have been living in separate houses for a few months." Mariah's rep refused to comment, saying her focus is, "on her children and her upcoming tour." There's still plenty of speculation, of course. One source claims the beginning of the end came when Nick admitted that he once sliced himself off a piece of Kim Kardashian's booty. Mariah did not appreciate him making that public and she got even more upset when Nick revealed that she didn't give it up to him until they were married. She also hates that he takes every gig that comes his way, even though they don't need the money. Sources say he likes to work so people won't think he's living off Mariah's money.

She said, "If I could wake up and look like her tomorrow, that would be great." But then they asked who she thinks is the sexiest man alive is, she said, "Vince Vaughn. He's amazing. Fantastic." They wanted to know if she had a motto which she lives her life by, she said, "Avoid obviousness. That is a quote by Leonardo DiCaprio. That's what makes you create something, that's the excitement, that's the thrill."

Ciara broke things off with her fiance Future after she recently discovered his cheating ways. She found out about the affair through multiple sources in recent weeks.
