Kate Middleton Won't Be Making it to That 'Hobbit' Premiere

Hopefully Kate Middleton isn't too bummed she'll be missing out on The Hobbit's big red carpet premiere on Wednesday. Less than a week after leaving the hospital, the Duchess still requires some rest. Also in today's celeb news, Nick Cannon and Fergie both revealed intimate details about their relationships, and Lindsay Lohan is facing jail time again. More below.

Kate Middleton to Miss Hobbit Premiere
After canceling a week's worth of scheduled appearances following her hospitalization last week, it was unclear whether Kate Middleton would make it to the London red carpet premiere of The Hobbit. But unfortunately she won't have a chance to partake in the pleasures of Middle Earth on Wednesday.

The Duchess has been suffering the effects of an acute morning sickness known as Hyperemesis Gravidarum. During a weekend appearance, husband Prince William (who will be at the Hobbit premiere as scheduled) joked, "I don't know why they call it morning sickness -- they should call it all day and all night sickness. [Recovery is] a long old process but she is getting there. She feels like it is going to go on forever."

Guess Who Topped Ke$ha's First Week Sales?

Given the unrelenting catchiness of Ke$ha's single "Die Young," it's hard to believe her sophomore album Warrior wasn't a smash hit straight out of the gate. While Warrior managed to chart in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 this week, it proved less popular than a handful of older releases — including an album that's been around for a year.

Taylor Swift's Red nabbed the top spot for the fourth non-consecutive week, closely followed by Wiz Khalifa's O.N.I.F.C., which moved 141,000 copies. Rod Stewart's latest collection of mom-friendly holiday standards, Merry Christmas Baby, took the third spot, while One Direction's Live While We're Young held strong at No. 4. In fifth place, Michael Bublé's Christmas proved its staying power, leaving Ke$ha's Warrior the sixth place spot with approximately 85,000 copies sold.

A hit single does not always guarantee strong album sales. Carly Rae Jepsen had the year's most inescapable hit, but her full-length album Kiss debuted at No. 6 with 46,000 copies sold. But don't worry, Animals: With all the airplay it's getting, we expect Warrior to linger on the charts long into 2013.

Jennifer Lopez Combats Engagement Rumors With Her 2002 Hit

Some stars battle wild rumors through their reps, others choose to completely ignore them. Jennifer Lopez opens up her own archives. The singer posted lyrics from her 2002 hit "Jenny from the Block" to cleverly deny she and boyfriend of seven months, Casper Smart, are engaged. "Rumors!!! Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got," she wrote on her website, alongside a picture showing her in a sexy white dress with a naked ring finger.

The lyrics are appropriate for the situation and, perhaps inadvertently, show that she's learned marrying a back-up dancer boyfriend of seven months isn't the best idea. Back when that song came out she was in the process of divorcing her first backup dancer, Cris Judd. The two got married in September 2001 after seven months of dating. By June of the next year, they had called it quits and Lopez was in the process of moving on with Ben Affleck.

Hopefully the singer will give it at least seven more months before embarking on her fourth marriage...

Charlize Theron Shaved Her Head! How Much Money Would it Take For You to Shave Yours?

Actress Charlize Theron is one of our favorites here at StyleBistro HQ. Not only is she just, you know, drop-dead gorgeous, but she's also a brilliant actress and isn't afraid to tackle some, um, more controversial roles (raise your hand if you loved Young Adult as much as we did!).

Yesterday, Charlize was snapped taking her adorable son Jackson to the doctor—and she was wearing a hat... with nothing underneath. That's right, the star whose beautiful locks have inspired tons of other women to go blonde has completely shaved her head—buzz-buzz, dunzo.

According to industry water-cooler talk, Charlize's new look is purely professional—she's set to star as Furiosa in the upcoming film Mad Max: Fury Road.

We'll be bringing you photos of Charlize's actual shaved head as they come through on the wire, but in the meantime, let's discuss: What do you think about Charlize's new hairdo (or lack thereof)? Would you ever shave your head? What if someone gave you a few million dollars? How much would someone have to pay you to get you to shave your head? Let's put it to a poll, shall we.
