Kelly Rowland, 32, has confirmed she is engaged to her manager Tim Witherspoon.

The former Destiny's Child star — who was first rumoured to have gotten engaged in mid November when she flaunted a diamond engagement ring during video posted to Instagram — is set to walk down the aisle with her beau of four years.

The X Factor USA judge was in Bulgaria when Tim proposed to her via Skype, she recalled in an interview on The Queen Latifah Show, which aired yesterday.

She gushed to her host: 'He put a ring on it!'

That ring — a four carat cushion-cut diamond sparkler — also made an appearance on her hand as she exited the Jay-Z concert at LA's Staples Center, which she attended with Tim, on December 9.

During the chat fest, Kelly even shared the details of the proposal.

"He asked me first on Skype and I was like, "We're so far away from each other,"' she said.

"But it was so late, I remember we were both just kinda like, honestly, just staring at each other ... and he asked me, and it was just that simple to say yes."

Jennifer Lawrence photoshopped to look thinner

Jennifer Lawrence and Flare magazine have come under fire after before and after images appeared of her 2011 cover that clearly show the Oscar-winning actress was photoshopped to look thinner.

The star, who has openly spoken out about her body confidence and desire to look healthy, has been slimmed down in several places including her hips, waist and face.

The star's collarbones have been accentuated and her neck lengthened to give her a less-curvy more defined silhouette.

During the interview with Flare, entitled A Star Is Born, Jennifer spoke about her body image and said she'd prefer to look like a real person.

She said: "I'd rather look a little chubby on camera and look like a person in real life, than to look great onscreen and look like a scarecrow in real life."

It's unknown whether or not the actress knows about the airbrushing saga but from the GIF that's surfaced online it's clear to see she's been slimmed down.

Golden girl of fashion!

Cate Blanchett resembled a Mondrian work of art in head-to-toe Céline Spring 2014 for her fifth Vogue cover -- on newsstands December 24.

Inside the January edition, the 44-year-old Oscar winner elegantly reclined in a golden embroidered silk dress by Dolce & Gabbana while pawing jewelry by Cartier, Verdura, and Jennifer Fisher.

The Elizabeth star's flawless alabaster complexion practically blended in with a nude lacy Giorgio Armani Privé gown.

The Armani spokesmodel also wears designer looks from Nina Ricci and Michael Kors in the sophisticated spread shot by Craig McDean.

In the Vogue article, Blanchett — born Catherine — shares mixed feelings about her sometimes erratic profession.

"I'm always threatening to give up acting, but then I get seduced back into it,' the mother-of-three said.

"I feel like I'm standing on the brink of something exciting."

Cate is the best actress Oscar frontrunner at the moment having just scored Golden Globe and SAG Award nominations for Blue Jasmine.
