Adele sat down for the “73 Questions with Vogue” segment, and the most interesting thing to come out of it was that she owns a piece of gum chewed by another celebrity. Adele explained, “James Corden, who’s a friend of mine, but also does ‘Carpool Karaoke,’ which I did, he did it with [Celine Dion] and knew how much a fan of her I was and so he made her spit her gum in a piece of paper and he framed it for me.”

Jamie Lynn Spears says in her new book that her parents and her team were trying to convince her to hide her pregnancy when she was 16 and to not go through it at all.

Jamie says when she put her foot down about keeping the baby, her team made an exclusive agreement with OK! Magazine to break the pregnancy story and give them the first images of Jamie Lynn's baby. But in the meantime, she and her mom went to some cabin in Connecticut to hide until the article came out, where "Momma wore her disappointment like her favorite jacket." Read more with tmz.com.
