Hailee Steinfeld Was Bullied At School

Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld needed all the True Grit she could muster growing up in the California school system – she was mercilessly bullied as a child.

Life has changed dramatically for the well-spoken teen since she landed the role of a vengeful orphan in the Coen Brothers western, and she’s now among the favorites to claim a Best Supporting Actress honor at the Academy Awards on Sunday (2/27) – but she admits life hasn’t always been kind.  She tells Parade magazine,

“I was teased really bad. I just happened to be that kid everyone picked on. It’��s the worst.”

Sting’s Son Loses Out On Eurovision Bid

Sting’s son Joe Sumner’s hopes of representing Austria at the annual Eurovision Song Contest were dashed on Friday (2/25) after citizens chose a native pop star to perform for their country.

The 34 year old Brit took time out from his band Fiction Plane to join Austrian act Klimmstein to compete in the final stages of the country’s selection process, where voters choose an act to represent the nation at the music competition.  Klimmstein competed against fellow hopefuls Nadine Beiler and Trackshittaz, but only managed to come third when the viewers’ votes came in.  Beiler, with her English balled The Secret is Love, came out the champion. She will sing for Austria at the event in Dusseldorf, Germany, in May (11).

Diana Ross Slept On Air Mattress During Daughter’s Pregnancy

Superstar Diana Ross was so determined to support her eldest daughter through every step of her pregnancy, the singer moved in with her and slept on an air mattress.

Actress Rhonda welcomed her son Raif Henok Emmanuel Kendrick in August 2009, and reveals the Baby Love hitmaker was so eager to help out in the months leading up to the boy’s birth, she willingly spent night after night on a makeshift bed.  Rhonda, whose father is record mogul Berry Gordy, tells Oprah Winfrey,

“I had had some problem pregnancies prior, so we were very careful with this one, and she was with me the whole time, she slept on an air mattress in my apartment, she came to every doctor’s appointment, and I was going a lot.”

Ross, 66, was also present for her first grandchild’s birth, and admits she drove doctors at the hospital crazy.
The singer says,

“I was there when she gave birth too. The doctor said I was nuts, I was running, going, ‘Oh, oh, oh, look at that baby!’ I think they wanted to kick me out!”

Rhoda, 39, adds, “She was the first one to grab the baby. She ran out like it was a football!”

Raif is Rhonda’s child with jazz musician husband Rodney Kendrick.

Celebrity Pictures: Cash Warren And Honor Marie

Cash Warren and daughter Honor Marie were snapped as they ran some errands together in Los Angeles yesterday.

If Jessica Alba has another daughter, she will be one lucky little girl if she gets to wear big sister Honor’s hand-me-downs.  Honor is definitely one of the best dressed Hollywood kids –  Jessica always has her dressed so cute – and age-appropriate, too.
