Celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels was talking with Buzzfeed about Lizzo, and she has no idea why Lizzo's fans celebrate anything more than her music. Specifically, she said, “Why are we celebrating her body? Why does it matter? Why aren’t we celebrating her music?” Lizzo, who frequently performs in skimpy bodysuits, is all about body-positivity and self-acceptance. But Jillian doesn't support that because, as she said, " it isn’t going to be awesome if she gets diabetes.” Jillian added, “I love her music. My kid loves her music. But, there’s never a moment where I’m like, ‘And I’m so glad that she’s overweight.'” Even when fans went on the attack, Jillian stood her ground. She explained, “As I’ve stated repeatedly, we are all beautiful, worthy, and equally deserving. I also feel strongly that we love ourselves enough to acknowledge there are serious health consequences that come with obesity — heart disease, diabetes, cancer to name only a few. I would never wish these for ANYONE and I would hope we prioritize our health because we LOVE ourselves and our bodies.”
In the meantime, Lizzo can't be bothered by Jillian's comments because she is volunteering her time to help with the Australian wildfires. Lizzo went to a food bank and helped pack supplies for families affected by the fire following her show at the Sydney Opera House this week, where she urged fans to donate. She didn't even try to get publicity for it, but Foodbank Victoria gave her a shoutout on a Facebook post reading, “We had the one and only Lizzo helping us sort and pack hampers in the warehouse today!” Lizzo then dropped a line from her song “Truth Hurts” by changing the words to, “Turns out I’m 100 percent that food bank!”

"Fuller House" star Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli have no intention of entering a plea bargain in the college admissions scandal because they insist they have done nothing wrong. According to TMZ, they have a secret weapon. USC’s former head of the athletics, Pat Haden, is expected to be one of the key witnesses because there’s video of him talking about the school’s fundraising efforts. Lori and Mossimo are fighting charges of bribery because while Mossimo did give a check to former Senior Associate Athletic Director Donna Heinel for $50,000, he maintains it’s not considered a bribe because the payee was USC. Rick Singer – the mastermind of the scandal – is the one who told Mossimo to send it. Rick also asked Mossimo to give him a check for $200,000 to fund one of his charities. The US Attorney says that the smoking gun is that the athletic director received $20,000 a month from Rick, which prosecutors says is proof of a bribe. But both of Lori’s daughters were accepted to the university before the director got anything. Sources say that the money was sent to the director by Rick Singer, not by Lori and Mossimo, which leaves them out of the loop.

"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Danielle Staub shockingly announced on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen" that she is leaving the show permanently. Andy Cohen himself couldn't believe it and asked her why. She said, “I have, over the past 12 years and 10 seasons, been a part of this whole franchise, and I’ve been very happy to rally and stand on the platform and be here with all of you, but it is time for me to leave and do something that I want to do that makes my heart happy every day. So I will be never returning as a Housewife again…” Until she does.

Harry Styles did a nice deed for a guy named Rory Carroll. Rory shared on Twitter that Harry actually volunteered to watch his dog so he could quickly run into a restaurant to pick up his order. Rory explained on Twitter, “I was outside a restaurant in Hollywood trying to pick up my takeout order but couldn’t go in because I was with my puppy. Harry Styles saw my predicament, tapped me on the shoulder and said he could watch Oscar while I went in. What a guy.” Of course, fans loved it, with one calling it "the most harry thing to do,” and another added, “stop. this is the cutest thing ever. Yes, yes it is.

Brad Pitt says he has "Hangover" Bradley Cooper to thank for getting him sober. Brad has been open the last couple of years about his struggles with sobriety and how going to Alcoholics Anonymous helped him. But, when Brad was presented with the award for best supporting actor for "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" at the National Board of Review Annual Awards Gala in New York City on Wednesday night, he thanked Bradley in his speech. He said, "I got sober because of this guy and every day has been happier ever since.”

Tiffany Haddish, Salma Hayek and Rose Byrne are on the cover the January issue of InStyle to promote their new movie, “Like a Boss,” and of course, there’s an interview to go along with it. One of things Tiffany shared was the first purchase she made when she got out of debt. Tiffany, who said she’s always been interested in science, got a microscope, adding that she stayed up for three days straight looking at samples of everything. When she had a date over to her house, she would offer him something to drink, and after he left, she would swab the cup he used to check out the bacteria inside his mouth. Tiffany said, “I like to look at germs. Put them in the refrigerator and see how they act, put them in the sun … I look at all the juices. I had to move my lab to my bedroom once my grandma and brother moved into my house. And I have a section in the refrigerator with a note that says, ‘Do not touch anything in this drawer!’” Noted!

"Three's Company" actress Suzanne Somers is on tour promoting her latest book, yet she has a fractured hip, according to AceShowbiz. On top of that, she's not willing to give up her heels as she heals. Suzanne told Page Six, "I have a crutch and my five-inch Manolo Blahniks." Additionally, the damaged hip is causing problems with her home life. She said her husband Alan Hamel, is getting a little hot and bothered because he can't get any action in the bedroom right now. She explained, "There's not much you can do. I had to stay in bed for six weeks, no moving." That can't make Alan feel good knowing she'll take risks for her footwear, but not for him.

We have more details on how Meghan Markle and Prince Harry shocked stepping down from their Senior Royal roles and becoming financially independent, a move that’s been dubbed “Megxit.” Apparently, Meghan and Harry sprung the decision on the rest of the Royal family, only giving them a 10-minute heads-up. In the meantime, according to People, Meghan and Harry left their baby, Archie, with Meghan’s best friend, Jessica Mulroney, while they flew to Britain for the announcement. Daily Mail reports that now that it’s out of the way, Meghan has flown back to Canada to pick him up, but that she also may stay there for a while. From what we hear, the palace isn't willing to let this go so easily. The Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William, are trying to find a solution that will work for everyone. The palace needs to “talk openly with governments” where the couple plans to stay, and then there are the issues of funding for the couple and their team, security and protection, and whether they will have official residences. Additionally, there has been an unexpected fallout from the palace shakeup - Harry and Meghan’s wax figures at Madame Tussaud's in London have already been moved away from the rest of the Royal family’s figures. Meghan and Harry had been placed right next to the Queen along with Will and Kate Middleton, but now that they’re not going to be “senior royals,” Madame Tussaud's has decided to move them to the "World Stage" section, according to the AP.

Remember that champagne that Reese Witherspoon sponged off of Beyoncé and Jay-Z when their table ran out of water at the Golden Globes? Well, they must have appreciated Reese's and Jennifer Aniston's reaction to getting some of that special bubbly since Bey and J sent Reese a whole case of Ace of Spades. Reese said in her Instagram Story, “I just got home from New York, and the most beautiful flowers are here and a case of Ace of Spades champagne." The card read, “More water — Jay and Bey.” She was nice enough to share it with her mom, Betty, who called the bottle of bubbly “delicious.” Reese agreed, saying, “It’s really good.”

The internet just does not know what to make of this! So, Beyoncé liked a photo of Kylie Jenner’s closet clean out, but shortly after, she un-liked the picture. She didn't unlike it fast enough because fans caught on real fast. As one wrote, “Must’ve been an accident or maybe [her daughter Blue Ivy] was playing on mommy’s phone." Read more with OK! USA.
