Avril Lavigne doesn't regret her marriages.
The 34-year-old singer - who split from first husband Deryck Whibley in 2009 after three years of marriage and went on to wed Chad Kroeger in July 2013 before separating in September 2015 - "loves love" and is still on good terms with both her former spouses.
She said: "I love love. The way I looked at it is I married my long-terms."
The 'Head Above Water' singer first met Chad when it was suggested by her then-manager that they get into the recording studio together and they quickly fell in love.
Recalling her initial reaction to the collaboration suggestion, she told Billboard magazine: "He's had a ton of hit songs. He plays guitar. This could be great...
"A month later, I had a 14-carat ring on my finger."
And the 43-year-old rocker quickly caught her attention when he arrived for their first studio session with a $3,000 bottle of Screaming Eagle wine.
She said: "[I thought] 'Like, I'm in love.' "
After two days in the recording studio, Avril made the 'How You Remind Me' singer get a matching tattoo with her, which read 'Vivre le moment present' - Live in the present moment - and she admitted around 75 per cent of her inkings were done in tandem with other people, including two she has with her Deryk, a musical note and a number 30 to mark the Sum-41 rocker's 30th birthday, which fell after they had split.
But the 'Girlfriend' hitmaker admitted she doesn't always remember getting inked, and it once came as a shock to her when she discovered a constellation of stars by her inner hip.
She recalled: "I remember, like, peeing. And looking at it like, 'What the f**k did I do!? I love it.' "
Joe Alwyn thinks it's "important" for Taylor Swift to encourage her fans to vote.
The 27-year-old actor has praised his girlfriend for her recent social media posts, in which she endorsed two Democratic candidates and encouraged her followers to vote early, despite her previously never airing any political views.
Asked on the red carpet at the BFI London Film Festival screening of his new movie 'The Favorite' about Taylor's new political stance, he told a reporter: "I think it's great, I think it's important."
As well as 'The Favorite', Joe can also soon be seen in 'Boy Erased', 'Mary Queen Of Scots', and 'Operation Finale', and he's very "happy" with the direction his career is taking, insisting he's not worried about his high-profile relationship overshadowing his professional life.
Asked if the expectation of his now-famous name bothers him, he told Metro.co.uk: "I just feel happy to be part of films that hopefully people are excited to see.
"To be here tonight... I'm happy to be a part of it and to be going around with it - I feel very lucky to be doing so."
Ahead of the midterm elections, Taylor recently took to Instagram to endorse Tennessee candidates Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for the House of Representatives and urged her followers to vote for policies rather than people.
She wrote "I'm writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I'll be voting in the state of Tennessee.
"In the past I've been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now.
"I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent.(sic)"
South Korean actors Jang Dong Gun, Hyun Bin, Lee Sun Bin Lee, Kim Eui Sung, Jo Woo Jin and Jo Dal Hwan held a press conference to promote their new historical zombie film Rampant in Seoul.
Dong Gun said, "I think A Gentleman's Dignity is one of my best-known roles, but I hope this film brings me to another peak of my career. It has an interesting story and is set up like a video game. My character had his own political philosophies before being manipulated by desire."
Eui Sung, who also acted in another zombie film Train to Busan, said that although both Train to Busan and Rampant are about zombies, they are very different from each other. "The script for Rampant really excited me," he said.
It has come to light that Johnny’s doesn’t want media to use the term “former SMAP member”, or anything with a similar wording, when reporting on past members of the group.
This “rule” of course would only apply to SMAP’s leader Masahiro Nakai and Takuya Kimura. After the group disbanded in December 2016, Nakai and Kimura were the only two members that chose to remain with Johnny’s.
While Kimura was doing promotions for his film “Killing For The Prosecution” was when it began to apparently be enforced more. Various media was specifically asked not to use the title “former SMAP member”, but to simply use actor instead. When given instructions for Nakai they were told to use talent as his title.
There was speculation among fans and critics that the Johnny’s office was trying to erase SMAP from peoples minds. When the group did part ways some media stopped using the word “SMAP” when reporting on the members right off the bat, but many still referenced the disbanded group.
One television official stated that this isn’t meant to be malicious, nor is Johnny’s trying to erase the past. The office simply doesn’t want to keep dragging up the past, and it can actually have a negative impact on Nakai and especially Kimura.
They further went on to say that since the other three members do quite a lot of activities together, that strong image of SMAP is still there. But since Nakai and Kimura are doing activities “solo”, the response would not be the same.
Despite the prohibition, talking about SMAP isn’t completely taboo. While promoting “Killing For The Prosecution” with co-star and Arashi member Kazunari Ninomiya ,Kimura did talk about the origins of SMAP’s name during an interview.

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin have seemingly confirmed to a fan they are married.
The loved-up couple were reported to have tied the knot last month, but neither of them had broken their silence on their happy news.
However, on Wednesday (17.10.18), the pair couldn't keep their eyes off one another as they packed on the PDA during a meal at Los Angeles restaurant Joan's On Third, where they allegedly revealed they were officially hitched to a fellow diner.
The onlooker, who filmed the couple sharing a passionate kiss, told the Mail Online: "I said to them, 'I don't want to say congratulations, but are you married?'
"Justin said, 'Yes, we are married'. He explained that they have their 'ups and downs' just like every other couple.
"He said he has a lot of baggage and called Hailey 'an angel' for sticking by his side, but she just rolled her eyes."
Afterwards, the couple were spotted house hunting and took a look at Demi Lovato's Hollywood Hills home.
The luxury four-bedroom pad - which boasts a zero-edge pool, private bar, covered gazebo and media room - was originally listed for $9,495,000, but had $500,000 slashed off the asking price as the pop star reportedly doesn't want to return to the property as it is the location where she suffered a drugs overdose in July.
Hailey and the 'Sorry' hitmaker were thought to have tied the knot on the day they received their marriage license in New York on September 13, but the blonde beauty later denied claims.
She said: "I understand where the speculation is coming from, but I'm not married yet!"
However days later, her uncle Alec Baldwin claimed his niece and the 'Love Yourself' hitmaker had "just went off" and got married.
He said: "They just went off and got married and I don't know what the deal is. We text Hailey every now and then. We met him one time."
It was later speculated that because both Hailey and Justin are religious, they don't consider their marriage official yet because they haven't had a full ceremony in a church.
The couple are planning to make their marriage meaningful in the eyes of God through a second, formal wedding in a church in the near future.
Emma Bunton has landed her "dream job" in America.
The former Spice Girls singer will co-host 'The Great American Baking Show' - the US version of 'The Great British Bake Off' - alongside returning presenter Anthony Spice Adams and she's thrilled to have joined the team alongside judges Paul Hollywood and programme newcomer Sherry Yard.
Emma told reporters: "This is my dream job! Christmas time, eating cake and having such a brilliant time with Spice, Sherry and Paul."
It is believed Emma - who replaces Ayesha Curry as host - has already filmed the fourth season of the ABC show.
Last year's season came under controversy when judge Johnny Iuzzini was accused of sexual misconduct by former employees.
The network opted not to air the remaining episodes of the series, announcing Vallery Lomas had beaten Cindy Mailniak and Molly Brodak to win the show on the day the finale would have broadcast.
Paul joined the show ahead of the third season and replaced his former 'Great British Bake Off' co-judge, Mary Berry.
It's been a busy few months for the 42-year-old star - who has sons Beau, 11, and seven-year-old Tate with partner Jade Jones - because as well as her show on Heart FM and rumours of a Spice Girls reunion, Emma recently revealed she has been working on some new solo music and having "a little bit of fun" in the recording studio.
She said: "I am back in the studio, I'm saying this for the first time.
"I have been in the studio and have been having a little bit of fun on my own just to see whether anything comes out of it."
Girls' Generation's Kwon Yuri, Shin Dong Wook, Lee Yeol Eum, BTOB's Lee Minhyuk and Kim Hyun Joon attended a media conference for their new drama Dae Jang Geum Is Watching in Seoul.
The series is an imagination of how the descendants of Dae Jang Geum, reputedly the first female royal physician in Korean history (and the main character in classic drama Jewel in the Palace), would live in the present day.
Lead actor Dong Wook took a break from showbiz in 2011 after being diagnosed with a rare chronic disease called complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). He made his comeback with a supporting role in TV series The Guardians last year, and reassured everyone that he is in a much more stable condition now thanks to continuous medication.
Dong Wook also joked that Yuri could not stop eating during the shoot, earning her the nickname "hamster".

Nick Cold (*28 December 1978, as Urs Stettler in Basel, Switzerland) is a Singer, Composer and Lyricist.
His passion for music goes back a long time and he perfectly remember writing his first lyrics and composing tunes at the age of 5.
Quite early he founded his first school band, however it broke up soon because none of the other bandmates took it as seriously as he did.
This experience led him to train his singing voice even more. He became a member of several choirs, took vocal lessons and even had the chance to work as a studio vocalist for
well-known stars like e.g. Nena.
Finally, in 1998 he decided to go his own musical way and setup a Eurodance project. Over the following years and alongside several other collaborations, he was able to deepen my experiences as a singer, rapper, lyricist and composer.
After 18 years of leading various projects, he decided to go solo in 2016 as "Nick Cold" and explore new musical directions. Deep lyrics, catchy hooks and versatile songwriting result in surprisingly versatile songs which are nevertheless always recognizable as being "Nick Cold".
