The music world lost an icon last week when Natalie Cole died from congestive heart failure at the age of 65.
Longtime pal and fellow music legend Smokey Robinson joined in with remembering the This Will Be songstress in a new interview with ET.
Robinson said the two became "instant" friends when initially meeting after the release of her first hit back in 1975:
"Natalie was so cool, she was down to earth."

While the 75-year-old calls the Unforgettable singer "one of our greatest musical icons," he admits that he recognized her health failing in the months leading up to her death:
So envious we could die!

The singer has spent several days vacationing in Miami and gifting us with a new skin-baring swimsuit on a daily basis!
On Sunday, Rita frolicked poolside in a floral Dolce & Gabbana string bikini, covering it up occasionally with a beige and black dotted robe.
Her boobs and abs were spectacular!

We can't wait to find who is the father of Bridget Jones's unborn child — and apparently, neither can the cast!
That's because Bridget Jones's Baby has THREE different endings, and not even the cast knows which one will be used in the final cut of the film!
Renée Zellweger revealed that the identity of who knocked up her character, along with who Bridget will end up with, will remain a secret until the film's premiere!

Speaking to the Sunday Express, the actress said:
Love is in the air!
At least, it is for Ryan Phillippe.
ICYMI, at the end of December, the Cruel Intentions alum got engaged to his girlfriend Paulina Slagter. Shortly after the proposal, the twosome celebrated their happy news at the One Hotel & Homes South Beach in Miami Beach, FL. Aww!

Though it sounds like Paulina deserves a lot more than a Miami trip, as friends have revealed Ryan's law student love is the reason he became a better person.
A close confidante noted:
Most Independence Day fans were understandably upset that Will Smith's iconic character won't be appearing in the upcoming sequel Independence Day: Resurgence.
But no one is more upset that Steven Hiller was killed off more than the actor himself!
While some fans held onto hope that the 47-year-old would make a surprise cameo in the sci-fi sequel, the film's website revealed that Col. Hiller died between the events of the first and second films!

This shocking death was a surprise to many, including Smith — who "had talked" to director Roland Emmerich about working together on a sequel. He told Yahoo! Movies:
Model, actress, celebrity royalty, and future legend.

The 16-year-old's latest coup is the cover of LOVE Magazine, on which she looks like some sort of psychedelic fairy! So fierce!
A short interview accompanying the cover offers some insight into the young star's future plans:
Tonight's the night!
We've been anxiously awaiting the new season of The Bachelor ever since it was revealed that Ben Higgins was selected as the 2016 suitor, and Monday is finally the night where we get to meet the girls competing for his affection.
We were already introduced to Lace Morris when she awkwardly went in for a second kiss on night one, but during his interview with Lara Spencer on Good Morning America Monday morning, Ben shared a little more info about two of the other women.

In fact, you'll probably recognize them because they're two ladies who lost out on love during Chris Soules' season in 2015!
Runner-up Becca Tilley and fan-favorite Amber James are back to try their hand at wooing themselves a Perfect Ben, and we think having competed before is going to give them a huge advantage over the other contestants.
Ch-ch-check out Ben's charming GMA sit-down PLUS an extended preview ahead of The Bachelor's premiere Monday, January 4 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC (below)!!!
