The 2013 Billboard Music Awards are rolling into Las Vegas on Sunday. It's shaping up to be a great show, with Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lopez, and Lil Wayne scheduled to perform, while Madonna will be honored with the Top Touring Artist award. Before we check out all the action this weekend, though, we're taking a look back at the Billboard fun in years past. Remember when Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey took the stage together in 2003 or when Britney Spears heated things up with Rihanna in 2011?

Update: E! Online is reporting that multiple sources have confirmed that Beyoncé is pregnant with her second child. The news comes just days after Beyoncé canceled a show in Belgium, though she later apologized to fans and returned to the stage on Wednesday.
Beyoncé may be pregnant with baby number two! Rumors popped up over the weekend that Beyoncé and Jay-Z are expecting their second child together roughly 15 months after welcoming Blue Ivy into the world. Now, People magazine reports that the singer is planning on having another child, but it might not happen just yet. A source told the magazine, "Beyoncé and Jay are planning for another baby after her tour is over and things calm down just a bit." Both Beyoncé and Jay-Z will be busy through the end of Summer with two big tours. She is currently in the middle of her Mrs. Carter Show world tour, while Jay is gearing up for his Legends of the Summer show with Justin Timberlake. Of course, Beyoncé is no stranger to working while pregnant — her Life Is But a Dream documentary followed her on the road while trying to mask her growing baby bump. In addition, Beyoncé told Good Morning America last week that she wants to have more children with Jay-Z and that her "daughter needs some company." So, is Beyoncé pregnant again? Tell us what you think in the comments!
Today, Calvin Klein officially unveiled Rooney Mara as the face of its newest fragrance, Downtown — but the brand got an early start celebrating the news last night. Despite the rain, stars including Rooney, Carey Mulligan, Nicole Kidman, and Skyfall's Naomie Harris stopped by Calvin Klein's beachside bash at the Cannes Film Festival yesterday evening.
Rooney marked the new partnership alongside Francisco Costa, the creative director of Calvin Klein Collection, at the party, which was also hosted by Belvedere and IWC. Inside the dimly lit and intimate soiree, she chatted with producer Harvey Weinstein, while Carey mingled by the DJ booth before making an early departure. Nicole also made time in her Cannes schedule to attend. All three actresses are busy working this week. Carey's The Great Gatsby premiered on opening night; Rooney's latest film, Ain't Them Bodies Saints, will also debut later this week; and Nicole is serving as a member of the film festival's official jury.
Marion Cotillard donned a strapless Vivienne Westwood gown to join Colin Firth at the Chopard lunch as part of the festivities for the Cannes Film Festival today. Marion and Colin celebrated the jewelry brand, which is responsible for creating the festival's Palme d'Or trophy, as well as best actor and actress awards. The celebratory lunch comes at an interesting time for the brand since it was revealed that $1 million worth of Chopard jewels were stolen from a hotel room in Cannes last night. The jewelry was to be loaned as red carpet pieces to the stars at the festival. Many drew comparisons between last night's burglary and the film, The Bling Ring, which coincidentally debuted at the festival yesterday, since the movie is based on the real-life case of teenage burglars who robbed the Hollywood homes of celebrities.
Emma Watson and The Bling Ring cast premiered their film at the Cannes Film Festival in the South of France today. Emma wore a red Christopher Kane ensemble to the photocall for the film earlier in the day, but changed into a Chanel Couture black and white gown for the red carpet bash. She also donned a simple black dress when she attended The Bling Ring press conference. Emma was joined at all of the events by her costars costars Claire Julien, Katie Chang, and Taissa Farmiga and director Sofia Coppola. The film will premiere at the festival today, but won't hit US theaters until June 14. Tonight's event will be an important screening for Sofia, who was famously booed at the festival in 2006 after she premiered Marie Antoinette.
Emma, Sofia, and their crew are hardly the only stars who are promoting their new flicks at the festival. Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan kicked off the weeklong event yesterday when they screened The Great Gatsby at the Cannes Film Festival 2013 opening ceremony. Other stars like Julianne Moore and judge Nicole Kidman also walked the red carpet at the opening bash — be sure to check out all the stars at the Cannes Film Festival!
Emma Watson and Sofia Coppola discussed their new film, The Bling Ring, today during a press conference at the Cannes Film Festival. The conference came after a morning photocall and before their big premiere scheduled to take place this evening at the Palais des Festival. The Bling Ring, which is out in the US on June 14, is based on the true story of a group of fame-obsessed teens who tracked the outings of celebrities — including Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, and Megan Fox — via social media and then robbed their homes. Emma heads a cast that includes Taissa Farmiga, Katie Chang, Israel Broussard, and Claire Julien.
Today, the actors, along with Sofia, touched on the real story and the factors that made it possible for the burglars to locate and steal from the stars. Emma also reflected on what it's like being a woman in the film industry, and Sofia hinted that tonight's red carpet event will include a cameo from Paris herself. Here are highlights from the conference:
Sofia in Paris Hilton's rumored appearance: "Paris Hilton and them haven't seen it, but I heard they might be coming tonight."
Sofia on the robbers whose stories inspired the film: "We made a movie. I'm not too concerned about their reactions."
Emma on what it's like for women in the film industry: "I am young, and . . . from why I see, young women are at the helm of franchises I see coming out. We are forging a new way in comedy. From what I can see, it's a great time to be a woman in this industry."
Emma on the prevalence of social media: "I think it's amazing how self-aware people are becoming. . . . I think it's a shame . . . "
Sofia on walking a fine line in being inspired by their story: "I definitely didn't want to add to their celebrity because of what they did."
On whether or not the based-on-a-true-story film makes them depressed about the 20-something generation — Emma: "It was an extraordinary set of circumstances."
Sofia: "Knowing my actors gives me hope."
After signing a five-month deal with his current team, Paris Saint-Germain, in January, David Beckham has announced he will retire at the end of the season. In a statement, David revealed the reasoning behind hanging up his cleats, explaining, "I'm thankful to PSG for giving me the opportunity to continue but I feel now is the right time to finish my career, playing at the highest level. If you had told me as a young boy I would have played for and won trophies with my boyhood club, Manchester United, proudly captained and played for my country over 100 times, and lined up for some of the biggest clubs in the world, I would have told you it was a fantasy. I'm fortunate to have realized those dreams."
The former England captain, who began his career with Manchester United at the young age of 14, will retire with a decorated history in the sport boasting many on-field accomplishments, including winning six Premier League titles and the Champions League. David also took the field for the US as a member of the LA Galaxy for six years and had a stint with Real Madrid, winning titles with both to add to his collection with Manchester United. His storied career will conclude in Paris on May 18 with PSG's game against Brest. In looking to the future, David said, "Nothing will ever completely replace playing the game I love. However, I feel like I'm starting a new adventure and I'm genuinely excited about what lies ahead. I'm fortunate to have been given many opportunities throughout my career and now I feel it's my time to give back."
Miley Cyrus put the never-ending breakup rumors to rest when she put her engagement ring on display while walking the red carpet at the Maxim Hot 100 party at Create nightclub in LA last night. She wore a Valentino jumpsuit and flashed her bauble, which has been the subject of a lot of speculation after rumors surfaced in March that her relationship with Liam Hemsworth was on the rocks. Since the gossip began, Miley has been spotted not wearing her ring, and she ditched her bling when she attended the 2013 Met Gala earlier this month. However, she could have forgone the accessory in order to maintain her Marc Jacobs punk look, which featured several big rings.
Engagement rings aside, Miley has had a busy Spring so far. She earned the top spot on Maxim's Hot 100 list, which she celebrated by taking part in a sexy photo shoot. Miley is also focused on her upcoming new album and has been tweeting photos of herself in the recording studio. She also teased that she will make a "special announcement" at the Billboard Music Awards this Sunday.
Yesterday Angelina Jolie shocked the world by announcing she had a double mastectomy, but the major impact of her disclosure still lies ahead. The news is prompting women to talk about and research the BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations and their own risk of breast or ovarian cancers. And on its newest cover, out Friday, Time magazine dubs the impending cultural and medical implications "The Angelina Effect."
Health professionals expect a wave of women to come in to test their breast and ovarian cancer risk, even though the procedure is pricey and only one-tenth of 1 percent of women share Angelina's BRCA genetic mutation. For those who do decide to remove their breasts, Angelina has, as a sex symbol, helped shift the prospect from a perceived loss of femininity to an expression of it. She addressed her femininity head on in her op-ed: "On a personal note, I do not feel any less of a woman. I feel empowered that I made a strong choice." And she assured readers that implants can be beautiful, helping to alleviate any shame or embarrassment.
The actress and activist's influence was intentional when she shared her personal decision: "I want to encourage every woman, especially if you have a family history of breast or ovarian cancer, to seek out the information and medical experts who can help you through this aspect of your life, and to make your own informed choices." Being informed and empowered about your health just got sexy.
The cast of The Great Gatsby kicked off the glamorous Cannes Film Festival at their premiere in France tonight — and they didn't let a little rain stop them! They stayed dry from the drizzle, which really just added to the drama of the event, with oversize umbrellas.
