Kate Upton, the curvy supermodel with new media intelligence, has landed the June cover of American Vogue. In a spread photographed by Mario Testino, Upton preens in body-hugging designs that emphasize her healthy bronzed glow.
The model--who appeared on the front of Vogue UK in January, landing a Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover the following month for a second year in a row--is well loved by fans. But she’s also no stranger to ridicule. The Internet was rife with commentary on Upton’s weight following the 2013 Sports Illustrated launch, which featured Upton on a ship in Antarctica with her parka popped open to reveal an expanse of cleavage— with many of her critics even calling her “fat.” But Upton, who trains with celebrity trainer David Kirsch in New York, was optimistic in her interview with Vogue: “It’s kind of funny to think, 'Oh, wow, the news is talking about whether I’m fat or not,'” she told the magazine.

Barbara Walters is hanging up her microphone in 2014 after 37 years with ABC News, the network announced Sunday night.
Walters -- who will hand down the official word Monday morning on "The View" -- wil continue to work on that show, and her various other news projects, through next summer.
In a statement, Walters said, "I am very happy with my decision and look forward to a wonderful and special year ahead both on 'The View' and with ABC News."
She continued, "I created 'The View' and am delighted it will last beyond my leaving it."
Walters had a health scare in January when she suffered a cut on her forehead after falling on a stair. Rumors of Walters' retirement have been swirling since for months, but she had consistently brushed them off.
Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong is part of a star-studded group of musicians helping to make the Lonely Island's new album a little less lonely.
Andy Samberg and his fellow comedy rappers have announced the guest list for The Wack Album, which will also feature Maroon 5's Adam Levine, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Pharrell Williams, Kendrick Lamar, and more.
The third Lonely Island collection - which they say gets its name from a combination of the Beatles' White Album and Jay-Z's Black Album - is scheduled to hit stores on June 11th.
In the weeks leading up to that day, the trio plans to put out a new video or song every Wednesday. For this week's inaugural "Wack Wednesday," they unveiled the video for "Spring Break Anthem," which co-stars James Franco, Zack Galifianakis, and Edward Norton.

Rock supergroup Velvet Revolver has been struggling with lineup issues for quite some time now since parting with vocalist Scott Weiland. Conflicting stories on Weiland’s place in the band have been prevalent for a year now, but Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash just made it public that the band is “very quietly” looking for a new singer.
Velvet Revolver and Scott Weiland reunited for a one-off performance for a benefit concert in January 2012, and shortly after the gig, Weiland claimed that he was once again a full-time member of VR. Weiland promised a new album and 2012 tour with the band, but Slash quickly swatted down Weiland’s claims. In September 2012, Velvet Revolver bassist Duff McKagan stated that the band’s singer search was “nowhere,” before drummer Matt Sorum further discussed the uncertainty whirling around VR. Scott Weiland has continued to make public statements on a desired reunion, but Slash once again batted down the idea, claiming, “We’re not buying it,” during an early 2013 interview.
Slash recently made an appearance on Flint, Mich., radio station Banana 101.5 to speak about Velvet Revolver’s signature search. “With Velvet, there’s no singer in place, and there hasn’t been, but we’ve been, actually, very quietly been looking for somebody who’s right for that band,” says Slash.
The top-hatted shredder went on to speak about a new project on the horizon. “Interestingly enough, I’m playing some shows in South Africa with [fellow former Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver members] Duff [McKagan] and Matt [Sorum] and Glenn Hughes and Sebastian Bach, and that’s going to be interesting,” Slash describes. “It’s called Kings of Chaos, and Duff and Matt and Steve Stevens and Glenn Hughes and Sebastian Bach are the main band, and then they have guys that come up and guest… It’s going to be sort of like Velvet Revolver with Sebastian and Glenn Hughes singing.”
Stay tuned for more updates on Velvet Revolver’s search for a lead singer as news continues to break.
I think that it may have been set up, but it's still pretty funny to watch. Do you think you'll see this at a OKC Redhawks Game here soon??
Steven Adler is opening up about his latest stint in rehab. The former Guns N' Roses drummer says in a statement that he's opted to seek treatment to nip a potential problem in the bud.
The rocker, who has a history of substance abuse battles, says he's "picked up a bottle and drank." He explains that he's done so "a few times," which is "a few times too many," and he "knew that this had to permanently stop."
Adler says he "picked up the phone, before it got out of hand, to get help." He acknowledges that several years ago he "kicked hard drugs," and says it's now time for him to "get rid of the urges of drinking alcohol."
Steven adds that he's "at a great facility," and he'll stay there until he's "comfortable to be home to work the program" on his own. He also expresses his confidence that he'll "beat this," along with his gratitude to the fans for their understanding, patience, and support.
Adler's rehab stint has forced him to cancel his upcoming tour dates. He had been on the road with his new band, Adler, featuring singer Jacob Bunton, guitarist Lonny Paul, and bassist Johnny Martin.
