A big get for my ABC/Yahoo series ... SELENA GOMEZ did her only on-camera interview with "Newsmakers" after her recent UNICEF Ambassador trip to Nepal!
Selena Gomez needs to chill. The 21-year-old singer/actress is getting heat to cut back on a frenetic schedule. But for someone that’s been in front of the cameras, rehearsing lines since she was 7 years old, taking a break from the pressure to perform requires a friendly nudge. “I have people saying ‘Have fun!’ You [...]

Our very candid interview with Lionel Richie about his music, Michael Jackson and raising kids in Hollywood.
When Lionel Richie released his second solo album “Can’t Slow Down” more than 30 years ago, it not only reached No. 1 on the Billboard chart and won a Grammy for album of the year. More remarkably, each of the eight tracks was a Top 10 hit. Every single song. Now, it is those standards [...]

"Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?"
Musician Boy George has released an album -- “This Is What I Do” -- is wrapping up a North American tour and is set to play a summer’s worth of music festivals throughout Europe. It’s been nearly two decades since his last full album, but the pop culture phenomenon was doing anything but quietly hanging [...]

An amazing backstory to this year's Boston Marathon winner!
Take a listen to Meb Keflezighi’s running playlist and you’ll find plenty of hip-hop. An example: “Empire State of Mind,” by Jay-Z featuring Alicia Keys. “Any music is great, but hip-hop especially because it’s what I grew up to,” said Keflizighi, this year’s winner of the Boston Marathon. “It gets me in a nice cadence.

When Carly Rae Jepsen first joined the cast of Broadway’s “Cinderella,” she recalled a conversation with the stage manager about fame. “He said, ‘The funny thing about being famous is that we all know this about you,’ and he went on to explain something that he thought he knew. And I said, ‘Actually the funny [...]

She says she has "no airs and graces" and it's true. Despite her overnight success, Susan Boyle is still as humble as when she blew away the 'Britain's Got Talent' audience with her beautiful singing.
Five albums (a sixth due in October), millions in the bank, two Grammy nominations and international fame have done very little to change the woman who sent jaws to the floor with her version of “I Dreamed a Dream,” on Britain’s Got Talent in 2009. Susan Boyle, about to kick-off a U.S. tour, remains as [...]

Chefs get nervous cooking for other chefs!
During an annual summer trip to Italy, longtime chef Nancy Silverton invited a neighbor over for lunch. And then she got nervous. Little wonder since that neighbor was Jeremiah Tower, credited as one of the developers of California cuisine. So Silverton went to her local cheese market for fresh mozzarella and prepared several sides to [...]

When you meet Dolly Parton, you can’t help but wonder where the natural ends and the man-made begins. While she’s never been shy about crediting doctors and makeup artists for giving her what God left out, the depth of her sweetness and sincerity seems almost supernatural. But spend a few minutes chatting with her, and [...]

Bill Ford takes no pains to hide the fact that he has a favorite child. “Perhaps a parent shouldn’t have a favorite child, but I do,” said the executive chairman of the Ford Motor Co. “I love all of our cars and trucks, but my favorite is the Mustang.” Ford, the great-grandson of founder Henry [...]

Despite all his successes as an entrepreneur and investor – owning the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, Magnolia Pictures, cable television’s AXS TV and Landmark Theaters – billionaire Mark Cuban said the lessons from his business failures are his biggest motivator. “It’s so painful, I don’t ever want to experience it again,” he said. “I take the [...]

Since he left office in 1981, President Jimmy Carter has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, founded a nongovernmental center to address global public policy, and written 28 books. He considers his latest one – “A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power” -- “by far the most important book I’ve ever written in [...]
