It's Friday, which means the weekend is here (TGIF, right?) It also means it's time for STARDUST News Bytes, so here are some of the top entertainment news headlines from around the world...just in case you missed it!

Jennifer Aniston shows off wedding ring
It's been two weeks since Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux tied the knot in a top secret wedding at their Bel Air mansion and now we finally get a glimpse of her wedding ring. The former Friends star was at the premiere of her new film, She's Funny That Way. She was sporting her new wedding ring on the red carpet. Aniston's red carpet appearance signals the end of the couple's wedding celebrations. Aniston and Theroux have spent the last two weeks on a tropical honeymoon in Bora Bora. The exclusive guest list for the wedding included Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Ellen Degeneres, Howard Stern, Chelsea Handler and Lisa Kudrow.

Jennifer Lawrence tops highest paid actresses list
Forbes magazine released its list of the world's highest paid actresses over the last 12 months this week, and at the top of the list is Hunger Games star, Jennifer Lawrence with $52 million. Coming in at second place is Scarlett Johansson, who earned $35.5 million this year thanks to her roles in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Lucy. In third place is Melissa McCarthy. The actress made $23 million over the past year, which could be due to her new clothing line Seven7. This year's list is very much global, with Chinese actress, Bingbing Fan coming in at number four with $21 million. Taking fifth place is none other than newlywed, Jennifer Aniston. I guess she hasn't been plugging that Smartwater for nothing right?

Kelly Clarkson pregnant with baby number two
Kelly Clarkson announced that she's pregnant with baby number two during her concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday night. "I was not planning on announcing this, but I'm totally pregnant again" Clarkson admitted. The revelation caused a loud cheer among the audience. The 33-year-old revealed that she and her husband had not yet told some of their family members. Clarkson and her husband, Brandon had their first child, River Rose in June 2014.

Liam Payne criticized for homophobic comments
One Direction's Liam Payne came under fire this week for remarks he made on stage during a concert, which some people interpreted to be homophobic. "This is my favourite song off the last album, and it is about trying to find that number one woman in your life, which none of you can relate to, because most of you are girls. Except for the boys in here, you know what I'm talking about" Payne said as he introduced the song, Girl Almighty. The 21-year-old has now taken to Twitter to defend himself against the accusations. "Some people take things too literal these days. I am in no way, shape or form homophobic. That's a ridiculous thing to say and I'm not here to offend people so take it as you will. I'm sorry to those I offended I really am, but there;s no need for some of the things I'm being called" Payne tweeted. 

Cara Delevingne quits modelling
Cara Delevingne is currently one of the most successful models in the industry, but apparently a modelling career is a price that is too much to pay. The 23-year-old says she's "not doing fashion work anymore" in an interview with The Times. Delevingne explained that the demands of the industry has taken a serious toll on both her physical and mental health. "I was like fight or flight for months. It is a mental thing as well because if you hate yourself and your body and the way you look, it just gets worse and worse. Modelling just made me feel hollow after a while. It didn't make me grow at all as a human being" she said. The Paper Towns star has talked about quitting modelling before, revealing that acting is her true passion. The last runway the actress/model walked was the Chanel Fall/Winter 2015/2016 show at Paris Fashion Week in March.
