"Rumor Has It" that 24-year-old Grammy winner Adele has turned down a seven-figure deal to pen her biography. The "Rolling in the Deep" songstress reportedly declined the publishing offer because she felt she's still too young to write a memoir. According to UK news source, The Mirror, several publishing houses, including Harper Collins, approached the new mom but she's shied away from signing onto a project.
Could age be the only thing holding Adele back?

Justin Bieber was left out of last weekend's Grammys festivities, but he managed to keep his presence up, hosting "Saturday Night Live" and a shirtless livestream slated for the same time as the award show. However, Patrick Carney, one-half of The Black Keys who took home the awards for Best Rock Performance and Rock Song, showed little love for the Biebs.
"I don't know. He's rich, right?" Carney replied, between signing autographs. "Grammys are for like ... music, not for money and he's making a lot of money. He should be happy, I guess."
Bieber's response to the comment?

Carney took to Twitter for a response of his own:
It's cool when you get cornered outside your hotel by a guy with a camera and they ask you a dumb question and then put it on TV. :(— Pat.r.ick (@patrickcarney) February 12, 2013

In the latest turn in the ongoing Jackson family drama, Katherine Jackson has returned home to her grandchildren from an extended stay in Arizona. Jackson also appeared on ABC News alongside her children Janet, Jermaine, and Rebbie, explaining the nature of her trip, and saying that she is upset that her guardianship of Michael's children has been suspended.

An enterprising Snuggie enthusiast's highly produced tribute to Beyonce has scored tons of fans online - including the Queen B herself.
A YouTube fan who goes by kkpalmer1000 uploaded a homemade version of Beyonce's "Countdown" video that has gone viral due to, well, a ton of reasons, specifically the fairly faithful recreation of the video's elaborate choreography and pop-art style editing. One of the main differences though is that the superfan swaps 'Yonce's slinky leotards for a color-shifting Snuggie.
After fans went nuts over the video online, Beyonce shared the clip on her website in a post titled "Brilliant," along with the message, "I Think he did this video better than I did :)."

Boston-based student Alex Dainis recorded herself lip-syncing to the Aaron Carter's "Aaron's Party (Come Get It)" when she was 17. Then she did it again at 20. Aaand at 23.

Her well-planned, forward-thinking moments of silliness have scored the attention of media outlets like BuzzFeed and The Huffington Post. Dainis also writes in the video description that she plans to do this every three years.

She's already got a shelf full of awards, but even more congratulations are in order for Adele: The British songstress is pregnant.
The Grammy-winning singer, who has scored boatloads of acclaim with her chart-topping album "21," has announced that she is expecting a child with her boyfriend, entrepreneur Simon Konecki.
Although "21" resonated with fans because of its collection of heart-wrenching breakup songs, Adele appears to have found a fulfilling relationship with Konecki. The superstar revealed the news on June 29 on her website:
Im delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx
