GOSSIP: Brad and Angelina finally engaged?

USA Today reports, the world's most-watched couple, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will soon tie the knot for good!

Beverly Hills jeweler Robert Procop confirms to Lifeline Live that he helped Pitt design a stunning custom diamond ring for Jolie, with whom he has six children.

The couple was spotted Wednesday night at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, where Jolie donned a massive diamond ring on her left ring finger. 

"Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized over a yearlong collaboration with Robert. He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect, so Robert was able to locate a diamond of the finest quality and cut it to an exact custom size and shape to suite Angelina's hand," 
Procop explains in a statement. 

"Brad was always heavily involved, overseeing every aspect of the creative design evolution. The side diamonds are specialty cut to encircle her finger. Each diamond is of the highest gem quality. "

Procop was not just some random choice for Pitt. The jeweler has worked with Jolie as well, designing jewelry to benefit the Education Partnership for Children in Conflict via their Style of Jolie collection.

GOSSIP: Lionel Richie Owes IRS $1.1 MIL?

Lionel Richie owes some money to Uncle Sam.

The 62-year-old music legend has a $1.1 million debt to the Feds, according to IRS documents obtained by E! News. The hefty sum is leftover from unpaid income taxes in 2010.

In addition, Richie has been slapped with a lien, meaning the federal government has the right to seize his assets if he doesn't pay up in a timely manner.
Fortunately, with new projects in the works it seems the "All Night Long" crooner should be able to scrounge up the cash to put this financial matter behind him.

Richie has a recurring role on The Voice as an adviser this season, and he will also appear alongside Kelly Clarkson and Robin Thicke as a judge on the new singing competition show Duets.

HOT SHOTS: Exclusive Photos From Alicia Keys' VIBE Cover Story


Alicia and Swizzy get very candid with VIBE, check out a few excerpts below and more photos from Alicia's spread. 

“It was the craziest thing,” says Dean, leaning forward in his chair. “We had a work lunch with some people, and I get home and look in the back pocket—"
"My credit card was in his pocket,” Keys finishes the story, eyes wide. “Why was my credit card in his pocket?”

One explanation might be that he’d grabbed it by accident when they split the check, but that would be too prosaic. They saw the credit card debacle as a sign, the first of many. Well, second, if you count the time, 14 years ago, when they first met and Dean tried unsuccessfully to get her number from his friend.

 “It wasn’t our time yet,” he says with a smile.

The issue hits newsstands on April 16!

"And it's my version of love songs. And what I mean by my version of love songs is they're not saying I love you."

HOT SHOTS: Nicki Minaj Shoots an Ad in Brooklyn/ Roman Reloaded First Week Album Sales

Nicki was spotted in Brooklyn today wearing another one of her unusual outlandish outfits as she filmed an ad for Mephisto Shoes

In recent music news, Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded easily grabbed the top spot on the latest Billboard album chart, moving 253,000 copies in an extremely respectable opening week. It’s her first debut at number one, though her 2010 debut Pink Friday did find the upper plateau several months after its release thanks to the late surge of “Super Bass” in early 2011.

The success of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded is easy to see, as Minaj went on a media blitz that included a free surprise concert in Times Square and the continued success of the single “Starships” (which currently sits at number five on the Billboard Hot 100).

Congrats are in order for the barbz.
