It appears that the eternal love of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan has reached its expiration date. Though reps for the actors have not confirmed or denied the rumors, sources tell People that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have called it quits for the time being.
According to the website, the breakup may have something to do with Rob ditching out on his 27th birthday plans that Kristen supposedly planned for him. E! News is reporting that the couple will continue to live together to take care of their dogs even though Kristen is "heartbroken" about the breakup.
Sources also believe that this may just be a temporary break and that they will be back together again especially if they continue to see each other often.
PAUL McCARTNEY LAUNCHES NORTH AMERICAN 'OUT THERE' DATES
Paul McCartney kicked off his North American Out There tour dates on Saturday and Sunday (May 18th and 19th) in Orlando, Florida at Amway Center. The setlist was pretty much the same as his previous three stadium shows in Brazil -- with several Beatles classics receiving their live debut on the new tour -- "Eight Days A Week," "All Together Now," "Your Mother Should Know," "Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite!," and "Lovely Rita." Three solo and Wings rarities have also returned after several decades -- "Another Day," "Listen To What The Man Said," and "Hi, Hi, Hi." For the second show in Orlando, McCartney replaced his 1993 hit "Hope Of Deliverance" with the "Fab Four" Help! favorite "I've Just Seen A Face" and switching "Get Back" for "I Saw Her Standing There."
Unlike many of his peers who've been playing the same songs on the road for decades, McCartney, who's only begun playing most of his Beatles hits in his late-40's, finds something still incredibly fresh about playing the group's songs live: "'Why does this feel so fresh?' Y'know, I haven't done it in a long time. But I realized the only time we ever did it was when we recorded it -- the day we recorded it. That was it, as far as the Beatles were concerned, we'd given up touring then. So, we never got to that ever again. I never got to do 'Hey Jude' live. And those songs are really good live. They need to be live."
Paul McCartney's setlist on May 18th, 2013 in Orlando, Florida:
"Eight Days A Week" "Junior's Farm" "All My Loving" "Listen To What The Man Said" "Let Me Roll It" "Paperback Writer" "My Valentine" "Nineteen Hundred And Eighty-Five" "The Long And Winding Road" "Maybe I'm Amazed" "Hope Of Deliverance" (5/19 - "I've Just Seen A Face") "We Can Work It Out" "Another Day" "And I Love Her" "Blackbird" "Here Today" "Your Mother Should Know" "Lady Madonna" "All Together Now" "Mrs. Vandebilt" "Eleanor Rigby" "Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite!" "Something" "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" "Hi, Hi, Hi" "Band On The Run" "Back In The U.S.S.R." "Let It Be" "Live And Let Die" "Hey Jude"

Christoph Waltz was being interviewed at Cannes on a French news program called Le Grand Journal on Friday (May 17th) when a gun was fired nearby causing chaos on set. The Django Unchained star was quickly ushered away from the scene as audience members rushed the stage in panic.
According to TMZ, the bullets fired were blanks and did not make contact with anyone. The shooter was apprehended shortly after the incident.
As previously reported, $1 million worth of jewels were stolen from a jewelry company at the film festival on the same day.
PAUL STANLEY SLAMS JANN WENNER FOR KISS ROCK HALL SNUB
With the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony now running on HBO, there's definitely a marked difference between the haves and have-nots. Although Rush fans played a tremendous part in finally getting the band inducted into the Hall after being passed by every year since first becoming eligible in 1999 -- Kiss, who also first became eligible that year, are no closer to induction than they were then.
Kiss frontman Paul Stanley took time to salute the band's fans while taking a swipe at Rock Hall co-founder Jann Wenner when asked if he ever sees a day when Kiss will be inducted, telling The Huffington Post, "Well, it depends on who lives longer, us or Jann Wenner. Look, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is marketing. You've got a bunch of faceless people in a back room who trademark a name that sounds very official. Well, if you had thought of it first, you would have been the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I am one of the biggest Laura Nyro fans. I still listen to that stuff incessantly. Laura Nyro does not belong in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Songwriter Hall of Fame? Absolutely."
He went on to plead his case, saying, "It's absurd for anybody to look around and hear the acts and artists who cite us as an inspiration, and then tell me that we're not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I would certainly accept on their (the fans) behalf because it seems to be a major sore spot for them, but I don't need the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame."
We caught up with Rush's Geddy Lee and Neil Peart backstage at the Rock Hall ceremony and they gave all the credit for their long awaited induction to their legendary fans: (Geddy Lee): "I think the collective voices of our fans -- without question -- put a hell of a lot of pressure on the board of whoever decides these things. To take. . . (Neil Peart): Gotta be. (Geddy Lee): Gotta be. I had the people from the Hall of Fame coming up to me today, thanking us, because it's the quietest it's ever been after the announcements were made. Usually they're so besieged with angry, violent (laughs) emails and such. So, they had a lot to do with it and so, I really appreciate it."
Randy Newman was one of the many acts in 2013 -- like Rush -- who have been eligible for years before finally seeing induction. Newman told us that he had basically given up on thinking he'd even had a shot: "I didn't think about it, I just didn't think I would get in. 'Cause when I didn't get in with the original sort of interest, I didn't think it would happen till I died, or something -- or never -- 'cause why would I?"
FARRAH ABRAHAM THINKS SHE'S BETTER THAN KIM KARDASHIAN
Even though Teen Mom'sFarrah Abraham has done reality TV and earned a huge payday for her sex tape, she does not agree with the comparisons people are making between her and Kim Kardashian. The 21-year-old actually believes her career has already exceeded Kim's.
She tells Metropolitan Nights magazine in their June issue, "I definitely feel it's an unfair comparison. I have been very successful with other things in my life besides just being a reality TV star. I have books and other things going on in my life that outshine Kim Kardashian. I feel I just outshine her when it comes to both our personal and professional lives." Farrah then goes on to diss Kim on some of the decisions she has made saying, "That's why I don't like being compared to her. We're two really different people. I don't foresee myself getting married more than once. I don't see myself making the same choices that she has made. Good or bad, I just feel I'm going to be a smarter person. I don't want to be negative, we're just different people. I wish her the best, but I'm going to focus on my life."
GEORGE MICHAEL AIRLIFTED TO HOSPITAL AFTER CAR ACCIDENT
Pop singer George Michael was airlifted to a hospital on Thursday, May 16th, following an automobile accident in Hertfordshire, England. The singer's representative, Connie Filippello, has confirmed that he is doing okay and only suffered superficial injuries. Details on the accident were still sketchy but Michael was a passenger in a Range Rover that crashed on the M1 motorway near St Albans, Hertfordshire, England. Filippello explained, "No third party was involved. We have no further comment at this time." No arrests have been made in relation to the incident.
Michael has a long history of accidents. In 2010, Michael was sentenced to eight weeks in jail after crashing into a photo store while stoned. He was also banned from driving for five years. In 2009, Michael was detained for suspicion of drunk driving after he crashed into the back of a truck. In 2006, Michael was found slumped over the wheel of his Mercedes Menz and eventually pled guilty to driving under the influence of drugs.
WADE ROBSON WANTS TO USE MJ'S EX HOUSEKEEPER'S TESTIMONY FOR SUIT
Reports say that Wade Robson would like to use Michael Jackson's ex housekeeper's testimony for his new civil suit against Michael's estate. As previously reported, Robson has sued Michael's estate, claiming that Michael molested him from age 7 to 14.
Sources close to the case say that Wade's lawyers are "dissecting Blanca Francia's testimony during Jackson's 2005 molestation trial" -- where she testified that she saw Michael showering naked with a 7 or 8-year old Wade. She described seeing Michael's underwear on the floor outside the shower, as well as Wade's neon green underwear. She added that she couldn't see what Michael was doing, but heard him laughing.
Wade's lawyer is contacting Blanca to see if she would be willing to cooperate in his new case.
STING SEEKING INVESTORS FOR BROADWAY MUSICAL
Sting is joining the ranks of classic rockers looking to make a a splash on the "Great White Way." The New York Post reported that the Police leader and co-producer Jeffrey Seller are looking to raise $15 million for a spring 2015 Broadway run of Sting's musical, The Last Ship, which had its first public reading on Friday (May 16th). The Last Ship, which is loosely based on Sting's 1991 album, The Soul Cages, "is about a family of shipbuilders who face a bleak and uncertain future when the shipyard they've worked in for years is forced to shut down."
A source who attended the reading, claimed that after a while the songs seemed to sound the same, and "It's got that Billy Elliot thing going on -- you know, working-class people who maintain their dignity in the face of adversity."
One potential investor was quoted as saying: "It's an art musical. It's a very good art musical, but I think it belongs at the Public Theater."
Another money man revealed, "I admired it a lot, but it's not for the Motown crowd."
Sting has never been shy to break new ground by writing and recording in different genres or reinventing his past works. He told us that ultimately, he has no regrets regarding the musical decisions he's made over the past quarter century: "I don't think if you do good work with integrity and care, it's never wasted. It always feeds the reservoir, it feeds the creative soul. That's more important than bums on the seats, or, y'know, CD sales, or whatever. But I have no complaints of it in any regard."
Iron Man 3 actor Ashley Hamilton has overcome alcohol and drug addiction and seems to be on the right track to getting his career back but he admits that he still struggles with personal demons. The 38-year-old is opening up for the first time about his lifelong issues with food.
Ashley tells People, "I suffered from bulimia and anorexia. I believe it was my problem before I got into drugs and alcohol. I used the drugs and alcohol to control the food addiction." Hamilton sought treatment for his disorder over the past year but has not completely gotten over it. He added, "I don't have it perfect now. I've been free from bulimia for years but I still struggle with food, restricting or overeating. That's been the hardest for me in sobriety. When I speak at meetings I have people come up to me and say I suffer from it, too, but I'm too afraid to talk about it because it's so painful. It's almost like drug addiction is totally acceptable to talk about in Hollywood. But food addiction? Nobody wants to talk about that. It's really shameful as a man to have that."
Ashley is the son of actor George Hamilton.
JANET JACKSON IS WORKING ON A NEW ALBUM
In the '90s, Janet Jackson was the queen of pop music and she recently reflected on her classic 1993 release, Janet, which sold seven million copies and included six Billboard Hot 100 singles. Jackson recently told Billboard.com, "I can't believe it is already 20 years! I always write my music based on what is going on in my life at the time. I wanted to allow people in . . . I want my fans to really know me. The Janet album was sexual and I was beginning to really discover that side of me."
Jackson, who secretly married billionaire Wissam Al Mana last year, shared that she's working on her first new album since 2008's Discipline. She said, "I am working on a new project now. We are creating the concept and initial thoughts on the music. I am excited about the direction we are taking. I don't want to rush it . . . I don't want to put a time constraint on the creative process."
During the interview, Jackson also shared that she enjoys Kendrick Lamar, Adele, and Bruno Mars' music. She explained, "There are artists, true performers that have come before me who have been a big inspiration to me. I hope I do the same for others."
