A Week In News Feat: Seth MacFarlane, Anne Hathaway, Drew Barrymore, Johnny Lewis, Foo Fighters, Adele and Much More

He's A Family Guy! Great news for Family Guy fans this week as Seth MacFarlane was named as the host of the forthcoming Oscars. We here at Contactmusic.com give a big thumbs up to the Academy's choice, though he doesn't have much to beat. (Remember Billy last year?)

Seth MacFarlane

Catwoman Marries! Well, not exactly, but it's huge congratulations to Anne Hathaway and husband Adam Shulman this week after they married in California. A special shout out to jazz trio Americano Social Club, who had no idea who they were playing for until seeing Hathaway in her ivory gown!

Drew Barrymore Did She Name Her Child After An Animated Reindeer?

Barrymore's Baby Reindeer? It's also congratulations this week to Drew Barrymore and husband Will Kopelman, who welcomed baby girl Olive. Though it's popular name, we can't help but think the actress named her daughter after a famous Reindeer?

Anarchy In The U.S: The entertainment world was stunned this week by news that 'Sons of Anarchy' star Johnny Lewis died after a worrying rampage in California. Though the tabloid gossip has gone into overdrive, perhaps we should remember the 28-year-old for his fine performances in one of America's most popular shows.

Disturbia: Rihanna fans were probably a little concerned this week with news that the Umbrella hitmaker was caught kissing ex-boyfriend Chris Brown in a New York club, before spending the evening in the same hotel as him!

Bucket for Bieber: Fans of Justin Bieber probably weren't expecting to be showered in vomit during his show in Arizona last week! Luckily, they weren't, as the pop-superstar kept his sick firmly on the-stage.

Diva Battle No.1: Yep, we all predicted it and it's happened already. Nicki Minaj has lost her cool with fellow American Idol judge Mariah Carey, threatening to knock the diva out! Frankly we can only envisage one winner: hint: it's the street smart rapper, from Queens.

Adele, Bond Girl

Adele, Bond Girl: This week, British songstress Adele confirmed she would be singing the title track for the new Bond movie Skyfall. Just hours later, the song had made its way online, and early reaction has been positive with the Londoner tipped to score the first ever No.1 for a Bond track.

No More Foo Fighters? Dave Grohl gave fans of his band a scare this week, claiming they were going on hiatus though insisting they will definitely be back, at some point. Thank goodness!

Spooky Success: A big shout out to director Genndy Tartakovsky and the rest of the team behind animated movie 'Hotel Transylvania' which took an unexpected $40 million to top the U.S box office this week. The movie took the biggest opening total since The Dark Knight Rises, despite very little promotion. Hats off!

Video of the Week: This week's hottest footage proves Arnold Schwarzenegger still has plenty of time for his fans, despite his tough year!
