Simon Cowell has lost 20 pounds (nine kilograms) since starting a strict new vegan diet.

The TV and music mogul was urged to ditch red meat, dairy, sugar, bread, and gluten by his doctor earlier this year, and now, he has revealed that the regime has transformed his health and his waistline. 

“You feel better. My memory’s better, I feel better, so I didn’t find it difficult. I can still drink beer, so I’m happy,” Cowell told Access Hollywood, as he showed off his svelte figure in a tight-fitting grey shirt and black trousers at the filming of America’s Got Talent. 

Back in March, the 59-year-old shared in a chat with Extra that after having blood work done, he was told by a “well-known” doctor that he had to overhaul his diet and lifestyle, and began changing the food he ate within 24 hours. 

“I’m thinking, what about alcohol? That’s all I care about. And he said, ‘Maybe not quite as much as you had before,'” he joked. 

And Cowell said his diet resembles that of his five-year-old son Eric, who he shares with girlfriend Lauren Silverman.

“It’s like the Eric diet because he actually, apart from ice cream, he actually likes water,” he deadpanned. “I mean, who likes water? And his raw vegetables. So I’m on like, the Eric Cowell diet.”

The X Factor judge decided to change his lifestyle following a scary incident in October 2017, when he fainted and fell down the stairs at his home in London during a bout of insomnia. 

He was rushed to hospital and later explained that his fall was due to low blood pressure.  

“It was a huge shock,” he told The Sun last year. “I have got to really take good care of myself to sort that out.”

Gabrielle Union jokes baby daughter has better style than her

Gabrielle Union has insisted her daughter Kaavia James has better style than she does.

The Being Mary Jane actress and her basketball player husband Dwyane Wade welcomed their firstborn via surrogate in November last year, and since then, Gabrielle has documented her tot’s day-to-day life on social media.

However, in a new interview with People, she noted that her style confidence has taken a knock since Kaavia James made her arrival.

“Dwyane and I thought we knew how to serve a look until Kaavia James came through to show us how it’s done,” Gabrielle laughed. “Mama is just trying to keep up!”

Earlier this year, the America’s Got Talent judge launched a special baby collection named after her daughter with New York & Company, and also created easy-to-wear pieces so she could twin with the nine-month-old.

Now, she’s focusing on her chic I’m Perfect capsule collection with the U.S. label, and invited women she’s inspired by – including basketball player Candace Parker, actress Dania Ramirez, model Isis King and dancer Nia Sioux – to appear in the accompanying campaign.

And the star is so excited about her previous collaborations with New York & Company, she’s keeping a few garments to show her daughter when she’s older.

“I can’t wait to show her the pieces from her own Kaavi James collection which were inspired by her,” the 46-year-old shared. “Kaavia has a very distinct personality and she’s very active, so often what I think looks great isn’t practical for her. While I love twinning with her, I cannot wait to encourage her to express her individuality.”

Julianne Hough is gearing up to launch a dance-inspired exercise class.

The actress/dancer has risen to fame as a professional champion and judge on Dancing with the Stars, and is also a member of the America’s Got Talent panel.

Over the past few years, Julianne has contemplated creating a new exercise format like the “SoulCycle of dance” but she’s since developed the concept further, and is about to unveil Kinrgy.

“When I think about what I want to create, I want to help people connect back to their truest self,” she said of the project in an interview with U.S. Women’s Health magazine. “When that happens, they can relate to the people around them with no filter and experience the world how we’re supposed to experience it-in its most pure form, which I believe is love.”

The name Kinrgy was invented by Julianne and her team, and merges the words kinaesthetic and kin, as in family, as well as energy. While the star shared few other details about her “high-sensory activated dance method,” she did explain that she wants others to be able to move freely.

“Dance is my superpower, and it has been my whole life, but I didn’t even know it,” the 31-year-old mused. “I have no boundaries when I dance.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Julianne opened up about her battle with endometriosis, a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the womb starts to grow in other places, such as the ovaries and Fallopian tubes, and how she uses exercise and abides by a healthy diet to help with her symptoms.

“If I don’t move my body in the morning, I have a fine day,” she smiled. “If I move it first thing, I have an excellent day.”

Julianne will launch Kinrgy in the near future and already has plans to open a studio in Los Angeles.

Heidi Klum and Tom Kaulitz have reportedly been secretly married for several months.

Public records obtained by editors at TMZ show that the lovebirds tied the knot back in February after getting a confidential marriage certificate in California.

The 29-year-old Tokio Hotel frontman proposed to the supermodel in December after dating for just over a year, and in early February, Klum told Entertainment Tonight she and Kaulitz had set a wedding date, but wouldn’t share details.

“Yeah, I think we did,” she teased. “But you will find out eventually. We’re two Germans, it will be very organised and on time. Very, very much on time and very organised.”

The 46-year-old and the rocker first sparked dating rumours in March last year, after they were spotted kissing on set while she was filming America’s Got Talent.

“He is the kindest, sweetest, most caring, loving person. I feel so lucky. I don’t know the last time I was this happy in my life,” Klum told People when they finally announced their romance. “He is absolutely wonderful. Maybe it is because he is German and we understand each other in a different way. But so far so good.”

This is the third marriage for the model, as she was previously wed to celebrity hairstylist Ric Pipino from 1997 to 2002, and singer Seal from 2005 to 2014, with whom she shares sons Henry, 14, Johan, 12, and daughter Lou, nine.

Klum has daughter Leni, 15, from a relationship with Italian businessman Flavio Briatore.

Kaulitz was previously married to Ria Sommerfeld from 2015 to 2018.

Gabrielle Union’s new baby fashion line is inspired by her five-month-old daughter Kaavia.

The She’s All That star will release the Kaavi James by Gabrielle Union capsule collection exclusively through New York & Company on Monday (06May19).

Speaking to WWD, the actress explained that the latest project felt like a “natural progression” and a reflection of where she is in her life right now.

“My collection is inspired by my daughter, Kaavia,” she confessed. “I wanted to create a baby collection because it was a natural progression where I am in my life now, and it has always been important to me to make sure that the collections that I design reflect a part of me and are true to what I think many women can relate to.”

The line features fleecy pants and coveralls, cotton-printed dresses, T-shirts and onesies available in sizes ranging between 0 to 24 months. There is also a sweater set that features Kaavi’s dog, Tre.

The 46-year-old went on to reflect on the similarities between the new line and her existing womenswear range, and shared that both projects were created to offer clothes that are stylish, affordable and accessible to everyone.

“My women’s wear clothing objective has always been to empower women and now I’m thinking about those exact same women with babies that are doing it all and want to dress their children in affordable, comfortable clothes,” the America’s Got Talent judge stated. “I wanted to create pieces that are all-inclusive – that both girls and boys could wear – and that were fun.”

Julianne Hough’s husband inspired her to change up beauty routine

Married life has had a major effect on Julianne Hough’s beauty regimen.

The singer and actress, who is a new judge on talent show America’s Got Talent, has adopted a more low-maintenance approach to her look since she wed ice hockey player Brooks Laich, revealing she has been inspired by his low-key self-care routine.

“I’ve been on a more natural kick recently,” she tells Us Weekly. “My husband has actually been influencing me. He literally has never washed his face in his entire life until, like, last year… He puts water on it, but he literally has never cleansed it like that.”

The 30 year old initially tried to encourage her man to try some of her beauty techniques, but she quickly gave up.

“I’m like, ‘You need to use this product and this product’, and he’s like, ‘No, because then I’m going to have to use it for the rest of my life!’,” she shares.

Meanwhile, married life has prompted Hough to rethink her approach to the beauty process, and her husband’s simple approach has rubbed off on her.

“I was like, ‘Let me pick the things that work and start from scratch and see what works for me’,” she tells the publication. “The older I get, the less makeup I wear, which is funny because, as a kid, you’re always trying to look older and look like everyone else, but as you get older, you’re like ‘Wait, I want to look like me! I don’t want to look like everyone else, so let me find what enhances, but doesn’t change me’.”

But the former Dancing with the Stars pro still likes to highlight her favourite feature – her eyes.

“Because my eyes are blue, that’s sort of my feature,” she says. “I don’t have big lips or something like that. Since I’m blonde and have light eyes, I sometimes feel like black mascara is too harsh, so the brown/black gives an intense look, but isn’t as overwhelming… I love to do a smokey eye a coppery, burnt red, orange colour, ’cause that really makes my eyes pop too.”
