Japanese hot model-actress Maria Ozawa has been in Manila for almost four years already. She says she has found life, livelihood, and love in the Philippines.

His movies hark back to more innocent times—Baby Face, Handsome, and Amy, Susie and Tessie among them—when filmgoers swooned over, well, baby-faced leading men and pretty and demure leading ladies. Jose Mari Gonzales was among the icons of Philippine cinema’s studio era, when Spanish and American mestizos lit up the silver screen like gods and goddesses from Olympus.

To kick off this summer's Boracay party series, The Day Club at Aqua Boracay launches the hottest pool parties on the island on April 18 and 21.

The party series features DJ Special T, DJ Vega, and other surprise guest DJs. There will different themes for each party. Thursday is dubbed “Popsicle” – a colorful, candy-inspired fantasy party with the hottest pop music hits. Sunday is billed “Soak,” the ultimate beach house party, reminiscent of the global dance phenomenon, Hed Kandi.

After two days of talks and discussions on media issues and trends in PMC 13, the young communicators got a more in-depth look and hands-on training on different skills in the industry, such as newsgathering, newscasting, and documentary-making from ABS-CBN’s respected media practitioners. 

One of the most controversial parts of Monday's new episode of The Voice was the introduction of the new "Cross Battle" rounds, where singers from different teams duke it out in lyrical combat.

However, the second-biggest controversy surrounded Adam Levine's new flat-top mohawk, and it left a lot of fans split over how to feel about the new 'do, which he continued to rock on Tuesday's episode.

Justin Bieber's focus on his health is paying off.

The "As Long as You Love Me" singer took to his Instagram Story on Friday to give fans an update on his health, revealing that while he's been having a "challenging" time, he's committed to "bouncing back."

"Getting better everyday.. bouncing back.. I will never ever stop fighting," he wrote alongside a black-and-white selfie. "Most challenging season of my life."

Bieber has been open with his journey to mental health, with his latest post coming less than two weeks after he shared a photo from a therapy session. ET learned earlier this year that the pop star was receiving treatment for depression.

"Justin is receiving treatment for depression, something he's struggled with for a while and was recently honest about in his Vogue interview," a source told ET in February. "Justin never had an authentic childhood due to accelerated fame and struggles with wanting normalcy… He felt he needed an emotional tuneup and with the help of his wife, family and friends, he’s seeking help."

Bieber's wife, Hailey, has been by his side through his treatment; the singer recently praised her for supporting him through his struggles in a heartwarming Instagram tribute.

"I fall more in love with you every day! You have walked hand and hand with me as I continue to get my emotions, mind, body and soul in tact! You have given me so much strength, support , encouragement and joy," he wrote. "I just wanted to publicly honor you, and remind you that the best is yet to come!"

John Travolta and Kelly Preston are honoring their late son, Jett Travolta, on what would have been his 27th birthday.

The couple's eldest child lost his life at the age of 16 after hitting his head on a bathtub while suffering a seizure during a family trip to the Bahamas. The teen had autism and had previously suffered from seizures.
