Kelly Clarkson has been keeping her wedding plans under wraps, that is, until now. In a recent interview, Clarkson revealed some of her initial ideas for the ceremony. “We’re actually thinking the fall this year. We’re thinking outside,” she said. “We are trying to make it small, but it’s hard. I literally had a breakdown two weeks ago about the wedding list.”
Clarkson doesn’t have to worry about the entertainment for her wedding, though. Country star and good pal Blake Shelton has offered himself up for the task. “Blake is going to play at our reception,” she spilled. “We’re very excited.”
Although an official date has yet to be set, Clarkson’s nuptials are sure to be one of the biggest celebrity weddings of the year. That’s not all she has to celebrate, though. The singer’s No. 1 single ‘Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)’ is nominated for four Grammy awards this year.

Now that Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana have broken up, rumors have been swirling about who he will date next. Some speculated that he would move on to his newly-single "Silver Linings Playbook" costar Jennifer Lawrence, but Cooper quickly squashed those rumors. Now Cooper is being attached to another blonde bombshell: Taylor Swift.
The report was started by Radar Online, which claimed that Cooper shot down Swift's advances. "It was a little awkward for Bradley. Jennifer came to him and told him that
Fortunately Cooper set the record straight fairly quickly when he caught up with Extra at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. "Crazy, never met her, that's not even true at all," he said. "That's completely made up."
For her part, Swift says she's not looking for a new man. "Part of me just wants to be alone," she admitted recently.

As if dating Andrew Garfield and starring in two films with Ryan Gosling didn't make fans jealous enough! For the cover of Vanity Fair's Hollywood issue, Emma Stone gets to cuddle in bed sandwiched between Ben Affleck and Bradley Cooper.
Laying on either side of the 24-year-old actress under satin sheets, Affleck, 40, and Cooper, 38, lay their heads on Stone's shoulders while smiling for the camera. Making the threesome even more surreal? Affleck is dressed up in a bear costume and Cooper in a gorilla suit. Stone, however, keeps it classy in a powder blue gown.

George Clooney has a guilty conscience.
On Friday night, the actor confused a diner at a trendy Berlin restaurant by picking up his check. According to the Local, Clooney feared his group had been too loud.
The businessman, however, didn't even recognize the star.
As the customer finished his meal at Grill Royal restaurant and went to pay, he learned the $134.66 bill had been covered, UPI reported.
The waiter told him George Clooney was behind the gesture. The actor thought he and his friends, who were seated at the next table, had disturbed the man.
"That's not true at all,” the man told Bild newspaper. “They had behaved in a very cultivated manner. I was stunned.”
Clooney is in Germany filming scenes for the upcoming movie The Monuments Men.

STUDY: Sex Is Better Than the Super Bowl
You guys. The Super Bowl this Sunday. Between the dueling Harbaugh brothers coaching, great teams playing, sexy butts, sure-to-be-killer ads, and a halftime perfumer you actually want to watch (Beyoncé!!!), there's something for everyone.
That's why we were shocked to see a new study from Durex that found most Americans would skip watching the game to have sex. According to their survey, 85 percent of men and 81 percent of women would ditch the game to get down and dirty.
Um…hold the phone, people. Yes, this is Cosmo and yes, we're all for having sex, but this is the freaking Super Bowl! It only happens once a year and frankly, you can have sex anytime, anywhere (and should be). Do we really have to sacrifice watching the big game to get some nooky when you can get it before and after? (Now there's a thought.)
On one hand, it's pretty awesome that more men than women would sacrifice watching the game to get laid, but on the other...we don't want to have to choose. Give us our football and our sex. Or, even better, come up with a game, like your guy owes you a sexual favor every time Ray Lewis sheds a tear. (Girl, you're going to be very happy when it comes time for him to pay up.)
Taco Bell CEO: Cool Ranch tacos on the way
Greg Creed, chief executive officer of Taco Bell, announced on "CBS This Morning" that Cool Ranch tacos are on the way.
"We've got Cool Ranch. That's coming," he said. "That's my tease."
Creed said on "CBS This Morning," "We started working with Frito-Lay a number of years ago. For our 50th anniversary, we wanted to celebrate the taco. And you know, there had been no innovation in tacos. So we sat down with Frito-Lay, they obviously own Doritos, they're our great partners. Two years later, we launched the Doritos Locos Taco, which ... is the biggest launch in Taco Bell."
