Elaine Daly marries
Malaysian TV host Elaine Daly tied the knot with South African doctor Nick Boden at a private ceremony in Kampung Pandan on 4 December. The couple then celebrated with family and friends at a reception in Genting Highlands over the weekend. Elaine looked stunning on their big day, wearing a Khoon Hooi gown and her mother's 41-year-old veil.
Elaine's close friends, including celebrities Daphne Iking and Vanessa Chong, were part of her bridal party. There was even a rainbow in the sky during the wedding reception at Genting Highlands, making the event even more fairy tale-like.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
Whitney goes behind the pop diva's relationship with Bobby Brown
The legend we all loved is getting a biopic of her own. The story of the late singer-actress's career and personal life will be told in a Lifetime TV film, Whitney. Yaya DaCosta, former America's Next Top Model contestant-turned-actress plays the singer, who had a tumultuous relationship with R&B singer Bobby Brown.
American Horror Story actress Angela Bassett is making her directorial debut with Whitney. She said in June that she wants to "tell a story about a boy and a girl who fell in love."
"It had to be grateful, respectful, honest, and all those things, because we know in her lifetime there was a great deal of pressure and scrutiny," she told Entertainment Weekly. "I didn't want this story to add to that."
Beyoncé and Sam Smith lead 2015 Grammy nominations
The Grammy Award nominees list is out, and topping it are Beyoncé and Sam Smith, with a total of six nods each. Beyoncé is up for Album of the Year, Best R&B Performance, Best Urban Contemporary Album, Best Surround Sound Album and Best Music Film, while Sam is down for Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best New Artist, Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album.
Beyoncé's nods mean she now has a total of 53 Grammy nominations, making her the most nominated female artist in history. She's already won 17, so it only remains to be seen if she'll add another six to her collection. Who can forget how she swept six out of the whopping 10 nominations she was given in 2010?
Taylor Swift's 1989 album missed the awards submission deadline, so it's up to her single Shake It Off to beat competitors. The singer is in the running for two awards – Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance – in contrast to her previous feat of nailing eight nominations in 2010, out of which she won four. Her mate Ed Sheeran is up for two awards of his own – Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album.
Pharrell Williams could take home up to four awards for Album of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Urban Contemporary Album and Best Music Video. Iggy Azalea matches him with four nods for Record of the Year, Best New Artist, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Rap Album.

Following the grand jury's decision in the Eric Garner case, protesters have taken to the streets of New York to call for justice. John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen may not have been at the actual demonstration, but they lent a hand to the cause by hiring food trucks to feed hungry protesters for free.

All of Me singer John also contributed with his music, posting a song, Glory, that he and rapper Common wrote for upcoming American historical drama film, Selma.
