Singer Ace Young (R) proposes to singer Diana DeGarmo onstage during Fox's "American Idol 2012" results show at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on May 23, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

Last night bluesy, guitar-strummin' singer Phillip Phillips was crowned the winner of "American Idol." It was also a big night for former "Idol" contestants Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo. The two got engaged live on the finale.

"Big Bang Theory" star Jim Parsons has also recently given fans a glimpse of his personal life. The Emmy-winning star came out in a New York Times profile, which describes him as gay and in a 10-year relationship.

And there's more drama for Lady Gaga in Asia. After being met with protests as she tours the continent, the pop superstar made a social media gaffe by tweeting that she wanted to pick up a fake Rolex in Thailand, a comment that has angered fans.
