R&B singer Usher and his much older fiancée Grace Miguel were seen arriving at their hotel in New York City, NY on Thursday. Miguel, 45, sprinted inside the hotel as soon as she spotted the paparazzi. I see why she's shy. Grace is no longer a spring chicken, and social media users can be brutal. The stylish couple wore trendy designer bags. Usher's is a $1,500 Goyard duffle bag, and Grace is wearing a Celine medium luggage tote in python that retails for $6,200.

Rapper and music producer T-Pain opened up about his battle with depression for two years after his promising rap career was cut short.

Fashionable alcoholics like Bajan singer Rihanna can now keep their favorite alcoholic beverage close at hand with these high end wine bags. The bags come in several colors and styled to look like the familiar Louis Vuitton Damier monogram. The wine bags will make it easier for on-the-go boozers (like Rihanna) who are too busy to stop at the nearest bar for a drink.
This has not been a good year for Rihanna. First, Chris Brown, the man she thought was the love of her life dumped her for his longtime girlfriend, Karrueche Tran. Then Rihanna's Diamonds World Tour failed to sell out. Rihanna was reportedly so depressed over the poor ticket sales that she showed up 2 hours late for recent shows.
Rihanna's concert promoter Live Nation threatened to cancel the tour if the troubled 25-year-old singer didn't get her act together and curb her alleged drug and alcohol addictions.
Former V-103 jock Elle Duncan was arrested early Sunday and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.
Police say that Duncan, an 11 Alive traffic reporter, threw back one too many drinks after leaving a Hawks playoff game. Apparently, Duncan didn't learn anything from former anchor woman Amanda Davis, who is awaiting trial on a November 2012 DUI charge. Davis, 56, was forced to retire after 26 years at Fox 5.
As expected, disgraced local news anchor Amanda Davis announced her retirement from Fox 5 after more than 26 years at the station.
According to Rodney Ho of the AJC, Davis, 56, made the announcement in a special statement that aired on Fox 5 during the 10 p.m. newscast on Thursday.
Davis had not been on the air since November 11 when she was involved in a wrong-way car crash.
According to Ho, the station aired tributes to Davis from retired Channel 2 Action News anchor Monica Pearson, former Atlanta mayor and U.N. ambassador Andy Young and V-103 morning host Ryan Cameron.
Despite a petition calling for her termination, Fox 5 plans to put news anchor Amanda Davis back on the air at 10 p.m. Thursday to give a "special statement" about her most recent DUI arrest.
According to Rodney Ho of the AJC, Davis, 56, has not been on the air since November 11 when she was involved in a wrong-way crash.
Davis has declined all interview requests since November, according to Ho. There is speculation that she may be announcing her retirement from Fox 5.
The former beat reporter has been with WAGA-TV since 1986 when it was a CBS affiliate.
Davis was driving northbound in the southbound lane of Piedmont Avenue around 12:20 a.m. November 11, when she crashed head on into a southbound vehicle.
The other driver was taken to Grady hospital with minor injuries. Both vehicles sustained front end damage. Davis was charged with DUI, failure to maintain her lane and reckless driving. It was Davis' 2nd DUI arrest.

Pop singer Ciara performed a classic Michael Jackson move during a birthday celebration for someone named DJ ProStyle at Hammerstein Ballroom on Tuesday (April 16) in New York City. Troubled singer Chris Brown, 24, also performed. Brown, who was booked to host Akon's birthday bash at REIGN Nightclub this coming Monday, canceled his appearance because, and I quote, "he didn't want to be in the same city with Rihanna." Meanwhile, Rihanna has cancelled her 4th show -- tonight's show in Dallas, TX. Her last 3 cancellations were reportedly due to health reasons.
Don't call Chris Brown a playa (at least not to his face). The troubled R&B star is juggling 2 women in his life -- his main squeeze Karrueche Tran and Rihanna, whom he needs to keep his career afloat. It isn't very difficult to tell which woman he's really in love with (it ain't Rihanna).
It looks like U.S. president Barack Obama's political troubles are causing him to hit the bottle excessively.
As you know, Mr. Obama is widely considered to be a narcissist, and narcissists tend to have addictive personalities. In Obama's case, his addictions appear to be to cigarettes and alcohol, rather than drugs.
Obama, who smokes 8 packs per day, famously told the media last year that he had quit smoking. But that was just a lie. He also promised his wife, Michelle, that he would quit his nasty habit. But, unfortunately, even nicotine patches couldn't help him stop smoking.
With Obama's approval ratings dipping near 40%, and his $3 trillion health care bill on life support, it's no wonder that Obama is drinking himself under the table as a form of self medicating to take his mind off his worries.
According to UK's The Guardian, Obama recently had an annual physical. And while his doctor gave him a clean bill of health, it was noted that Obama is "still struggling to kick his smoking habit."
But most interestingly, Obama's doctor recommended "moderation of alcohol intake".
That last note is important because if Obama was a casual drinker there would be no need for his doctor to advise him to drink "in moderation." It means Obama is hitting that bottle hard, and the liquor (and smoking) are likely affecting his health.
While Obama's doctors portray him as being healthy, we know there is no such thing as a healthy drunk or a healthy cigarette smoker. At some point, the excessive imbibing and the chronic smoking will take its toll on his liver and lungs.
