About Face for Renee

Renee Zellweger caused a stir over the weekend when she showed up at a Hollywood function looking different.

Yup. She doesn’t look the way she used to look, so that got some tongues wagging.

Yesterday, Renee told PEOPLE magazine she’s glad that people think she looks different.

“I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I'm thrilled that perhaps it shows," she told the magazine.

She thinks the whole thing is silly, and good for her. “Perhaps I look different. Who doesn't as they get older?”

And for the record, she’s starting to look a little bit like Glenn Close – which is not necessarily a bad thing.

Chestnuts Roasting Barista-Style

It's the most wonderful time for a new coffee.

At least, that's what Starbucks would have you believe.

Get ready for Chestnut Praline Latte.

The perfect beverage to wash down those holiday meals, don't you think?

It's Starbucks first holiday drink in five years, and industry experts think it's the chain's answer to the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Dunkin' Donuts.

Starbucks told the folks at Fox News that their drink is "inspired by the time-honored holiday tradition of warm roasted chestnuts… with freshly steamed milk and flavors of caramelized chestnuts and spices." You can add whipped cream and praline sprinkles, if you wish.

If you're salivating, grab a napkin or a bib. The drink won't be available nationwide until November 21.

Lady Batman?

At first, it reads like one of those hoax articles.

But then when you realize that the person they're writing about is Lady Gaga, it makes you go, "Hmmm..."

The folks at ComicBook.com are reporting that Gaga boughtbought a Malibu mansion recently.

One accessory unit that came with the $23 million price tag was what The New York Daily News is calling a "Batcave."

Said Batcave can only be accessed by an underground tunnel, and it features a bowling alley, arcade games, a home theater and an 800-bottle wine cellar.

If Gaga gets tired of it, she can always lease it out as a frat house.

Whose Fault Is It Anyway?

Monica Lewinsky, one-half of the scandal that almost brought down the Clinton administration, spoke over the weekend at the Forbes Magazine 30 Under 30 Summit.

As an introduction, she recapped the story of her affair with Bill Clinton.

She was fresh out of college and "more than averagely romantic," as she tells it. "I fell in love with my boss – in a 22-year-old sort of way."

When the story broke, "within 24 hours, I became a public figure." All thanks to the Internet and the Drudge Report.

"I was patient zero," she said, "the first person to have their reputation completely destroyed worldwide via the Internet."

The entire speech can be found below. It's about 25 minutes long - but interesting in a historical sort of way...

One of her classmates says, "Define 'dope,' Kim."

Tyga On Drake: "He's Just Fake To Me"

Tyga expresses interest in leaving Young Money Records to go independent.

Compton, California rapper Tyga didn't hold back on sharing his thoughts on Young Money and a handful of artists signed to the label, during an exclusive interview with Vibe magazine.

Before addressing both Drake and Nicki Minaj, Tyga was asked if Young Money will play a role in the creative process of his upcoming album, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty. The Young Money lyricist revealed that the label, who he previously revealed has been holding him "hostage," will not help in the creative process.

He also spoke on his desire to eventually break free from Young Money to go the independent route.

"Nah. I tend to distance myself from them," Tyga said when asked about Young Money's role on his next album. "Yeah, I'm tryna' go independent. I don't really get along with Drake. I don't really get along with Nicki."

Tyga further elaborated on his dislike for Drake. He revealed that he does like the Canadian singer/rapper's music, but feels that he's "fake."

The rapper then went on to explain that he didn't sign to Young Money because of his relationship with Drake or Nicki Minaj, but instead signed to Young Money because of Lil Wayne.

"I don't like Drake as a person," he said. "He's just fake to me. I like his music; you know what I'm saying? I think his music is good, but we're all different people. We were forced together and it was kinda' like we were forcing relationships together. It is what it is. But I been friends with Chris [Brown] for like six years. That's my real genuine friend. We hang out all the time. He lives up the street from me, so we don't just do music we hang. I think being signed to Young Money, everybody felt like they had to force a relationship 'cause Wayne put us together. At the end of the day the reason why I signed to Young Money is because of Wayne. Not because of Drake, not because of Nicki. It was because of Wayne and my relationship with him. I try to be cool with everybody, but sometimes, everybody just has different personalities, motives, and different characters. When you realize that, you realize that's not a place where you want to continue to grow."

Another artist Tyga addressed during his interview with Vibe was G.O.O.D. Music lyricist, Kanye West. He says his relationship with 'Ye began to form as he observed the rapper in the studio and at his home.

Tyga even recalled an "inspirational" speech Kanye gave both him and Big Sean about what they should be doing as young artists.

"I would always go to his crib or studio, sit in, learn and analyze how he does things," Tyga said. "He just told me to come to the studio one day and gave Big Sean and me this long speech. He was saying what it is, and what we need to do as young artists and how we need to take control of this shit. We got the voice and people follow what we do. It was real inspirational. He was like, 'If you guys want me to help you produce your albums, and co-executive produce it, I'm here. I just want to help everybody.' So, once I heard that, I was like 'Aw man! Let me start!' So I started playing the joints that I was already working on and he started critiquing 'em. I started switching things up. Like things I wouldn't even think about on a track, that he thought of, and it just switched the whole vibe of the song. So stuff like that and starting from scratch on other things. I think it's gonna be good to have somebody that hears music sonically like he does."

In addition to Kanye, Tyga also credited Jay Z, Eminem, and Lil Wayne as artists who gave him inspiration.
