So which state has become the 16th to legalize same sex marriage??
Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn signed legislation Wednesday allowing same-sex weddings starting this summer, making President Barack Obama's home state the 16th overall — and largest in the nation's heartland — to legalize gay marriage. When 2013 began advocates hoped Illinois would've been the 10th state, but watched as other states passed it. Gay marriage is allowed in Washington D.C., and 15 other states; Hawaii's governor signed a measure last week.
A judge feels Chris Brown needs more time in rehab, and ordered him to immediately return to a residential treatment facility for three months. He must also submit to drug testing and take medication as prescribed by his doctor. Brown recently left a facility treating him for anger management because he had to complete his community service for his probation in the 2009 Rihanna assault case. According to TMZ, however, Brown was actually kicked out of rehab for going into a violent rage. Chris must remain in the state of California, except for a trip to Washington D.C. next month to appear before a judge on his arrest for misdemeanor assault.

Taylor Swift has recently been looking for a home in London. She flew to the U.K. last week and spent several days looking at properties in the same posh areas of the city where Gwyneth Paltrow and her ex Harry Styles live. The conincidence quickly led to rumors that Taylor and Harry have reunited and will be spending the holidays together, but were quickly debunked by several media outlets. Swift, who already has a massive Rhode Island residence, is reportedly looking to "build her property portfolio," according to one source.
