Feb. 22 (UPI) — Demi Lovato says dating MMA fighter Guilherme Vasconcelos can be a stressful experience. The 24-year-old American singer admitted on Wednesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she gets nervous when the 31-year-old Brazilian star, aka Bomba, fights. “Yeah, [I date] an MMA fighter,” Lovato said of Vasconcelos. “[MMA means] mixed martial arts. It is cage fighting.” “There are rules, but you are in a cage,” she added before confirming fighters can kick opponents in the face but not the groin. “Yeah, of course [I get nervous when he’s in the ring].” “Yes, [he mostly wins],” the star said. “I don’t feel bad [for his opponent], nope! It’s a sport.” Lovato and Vasconcelos were first linked in June, and rekindled their romance in December following the singer’s split from UFC fighter Luke Rockhold. Vasconcelos appeared to confirm the romance by sharing a photo with Lovato in January. “Demi and Luke broke …

Posted on Wed Feb 22nd, 2017 12:10pm PDT       By X17 Staff She’s no Kim K, but that’s still pretty impressive! Blac Chyna has dropped 40 pounds since giving birth to daughter Dream in November, and she celebrated by doing a naked photoshoot in bed. The former stripper says she wants to lose 20 more pounds to get down to her goal weight of 130 pounds by summer, and we have a feeling she’ll do everything she can to make that happen, especially since she’s back on the market following her split from Robert Kardashian. Speaking of which, it sounds like the controversial couple is done for good this time around. “Rob thinks it’s the right decision. Chyna has disappeared for days at a time without communicating or providing any updates. This won’t end well,” a source dished to Us Weekly. “[It’s the same] with her yelling and screaming about how his family doesn’t like or support …

Harrison Ford piloted a helicopter out of Santa Monica airport today, and he doesn’t seem that concerned about the fact he could lose his license, pending an FAA investigation over his near-miss on the runway at John Wayne airport in Orange County last week.

The A-lister isn’t just bad at flying in real life, take a look at his movies! He crashes in Air Force One and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, too.

Feb. 22 (UPI) — The Yunessun Spa Resort in Japan offers guests an opportunity to bathe in luxury — literally: red wine, sake, coffee, and now, white chocolate. About 50 miles southwest of Tokyo in Hakone, Yunessun is home to four separate spas, each boasting a different bathing experience. Throughout the year, visitors can choose from a red wine, green tea, sake or coffee bath. Antioxidants found in red wine are believed to slow aging. Bathing in it is believed to date back to Eyptian Queen Cleopatra. Sake has the potential to remove freckles and age spots, while green tea is believed to be good for your skin and immune system. Every February Yunessun also offers a chocolate experience — this year the resort kicked off its chocolate event with dark chocolate and switched to white chocolate after Valentine’s Day. Bathing in chocolate is said to strengthen the immune system while working to improve the …
