With the ARIA Awards taking place over the weekend, there were plenty of local celebrities at The Star in Sydney celebrating Australian music’s night of nights, including Guy Sebastian and Samantha Jade, who shared photos on social media from the evening (and both took home awards on the night!). In other music news, Justin Bieber met up with The X Factor’s Jai Waetford and said, “Love this kid,” while Taylor Swift took in New Zealand’s beautiful landscapes before bringing her tour to Australia. Also, Rachael Finch indulged in an éclair, Jennifer Hawkins and Kris Smith hit the dance floor, and Jesinta Campbell got styled for an upcoming photo shoot.
It's no surprise "selfie" was declared the word of the year by Oxford Dictionaries with the self-snapped pictures popping up all over social media for the last 12 months. Celebrities were all over the trend in 2013, often giving fans an up close look at their lives while working, holidaying, and hanging with friends. Stars took their selfie-taking onto red carpets, movie sets, and even yachts (we're talking about you, Leonardo DiCaprio!) — click through to celebrate the big year in selfies and make sure to check out all of our best of 2013 coverage!
The Thanksgiving celebrations may be over, but stars are still taking to Instagram to share a glimpse of their festive celebrations. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West hung out with their "family" on the road, Emmy Rossum tried out a new accessory, and surprise friends Jennifer Aniston and Ed Sheeran spent time together. Cacee Cobb and Donald Faison wished everyone a happy Thanksgiving with their son Rocco and Laguna Beach stars Lo Bosworth and Stephen Colletti travelled back to their hometown to enjoy a meal with a view of the Pacific Ocean.

The US is in full Thanksgiving mode, and some of our Aussie expats are also getting into the spirit, such as Delta Goodrem and Renee Bargh, who put on a proper feast with their friends. Back home, musicians Samantha Jade and Timomatic celebrated ARIA Week at Sony Music’s special artist showcase in Sydney; Jennifer Hawkins danced the Zorba with makeup artist Napoleon Perdis, and Rachael Finch got excited for her upcoming breakfast radio gig over the Summer with Nova FM — the radio station has prepared a special room for her baby girl, Violet. Speaking of radio, Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O also marked the last morning of The Kyle and Jackie O show on 2Day FM today, and it’s been announced that they’re moving to Mix 1065.
Ali Oetjen, one of this year’s most popular Bachelorettes on The Bachelor, may have mended her broken heart — she told Tim Robards on the post-grand final episode After the Final Rose that she wasn’t in love with him anymore — but something that’s still on the mend is her knee, which she injured on the show during a group date episode on a boat. When we caught up with Ali a few weeks ago she said she still couldn’t straighten it, and this week she had her second knee reconstruction surgery since the injury. She also had some friendly faces dropping by to check in on her, including the show’s eventual lovebirds Tim and Anna, and some of her fellow Bachelorettes. Following surgery, Ali will spend a month in Noosa living with her parents “because they have to look after me [laughs]. And they’ve got a pool, so I’ll be doing rehab there.”
Celebrities came out in flocks to the American Music Awards in Hollywood today, and they shared the best behind-the-scenes moments, from their outfits to their fun run-ins, on social media.

Who knew Miley Cyrus and Miranda Kerr were friends? In the small world that is Hollywood, the two popular stars linked up at an event and were snapped by famous photographer Mert Alas. There were plenty more girlfriend moments, such as Lara Bingle and Vicki Lee’s trip to Paris, and Delta Goodrem’s birthday celebration with a close friend. Couples also displayed their love on social media — we got kisses from Jennifer Hawkins and Jake Wall, a dinner date night in California from Ricki-Lee Coulter and Rich Harrison, and the first Twitter photo of Tim Robards and Anna Heinrich, who could finally go public with their relationship after the grand final of The Bachelor aired this week.
It’s a relationship that’s been documented by photos on social media, magazine exclusives and morning interviews with rival radio stations. And if there’s one word that comes to mind when you think of the blossoming romance between Lara Bingle and Sam Worthington, it’s probably “fast.” In fact things are moving so fast that the Daily Telegraph is reporting that an engagement could soon be on the cards, with a source saying, “It is very serious. They are in love and are very happy. They want to get married, I have heard them say it.” The two are currently enjoying time together in the romantic city of Paris, adding fuel to the engagement story fire.
As their relationship has progressed so quickly, we’ve compiled a timeline of what they said about each other in the early stages of their romance. Their feelings are strong — Lara’s ever-present smile is bigger than ever, and the usually-private Sam has even admitted to being “smitten” with the Aussie babe. Click through to get up to speed.
There was no limit to the shenanigans our favourite stars got up to this week. Lara Bingle tried her hand at being an aeroplane pilot — while they were safely on the ground, of course — as she made her way over the Europe, Jennifer Hawkins have a special squeeze to her older sister and Miranda Kerr took time to post with hundreds of her fans in Tokyo. In Sydney, Big Brother winner Tim Dormer hung out with his ex-housemate Drew, while overseas, Aussie The Originals actresses Phoebe Tonkin and Claire Holt got all dressed up for a night on the town. And Renee Bargh? She's just hanging out with the likes of Delta Goodrem (her best friend), Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, if you don't mind.
