An old proverb says it is difficult to both have your cake and eat it, but it seems Kelly Clarkson has mastered the trick, as she was spotted enjoying a lunch date with her new boyfriend at a surprisingly low-key location in Los Angeles recently. She took her new beau Brandon Blackstock to a shopping centre Cheese Cake Factory outlet in Sherman Oaks, as the down-to-earth pair continue to enjoy the spring of their romance.
Kelly, 30, looked splendid in a long flowery summer dress, which she paired with comfortable sandals. Meanwhile her 35-year-old boyfriend, who is the son of her manager, also dressed down in a grey sweater, jeans and baseball cap. The pair, who started dating at the end of last year, only went public about their blossoming romance earlier this month. And Kelly has been waxing lyrical about how much joy she is experiencing now she is in love.
While promoting her new album Duets she joked about how having a boyfriend was affecting her songwriting. She said: "It is killing me. I'm trying to write a tough song and it is coming out like butterflies and rainbows."

Charlie Sheen's manager denies he 'trashed hotel room'
He is said to have been back to his old tricks recently, trashing a hotel room during a drug bender. But Charlie Sheen's representatives are determined to clear his name and have said "it's not true". However, the unpredictable star was spied outside the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in New York acting strangely as he pulled various expressions, gesticulated in an animated fashion and shook hands with a porter.
The hellraiser was in the Big Apple supporting his ex-wife Denise Richards as she promotes her new film Madea's Witness Protection, as well as attempting to plug his own show Anger Management. Yet, following their arrival on Friday, overgrown teenager Charlie was allegedly causing mayhem. A source told Us Weekly: "He totally trashed the hotel room!", adding that Sheen requested to be out of sight and earshot from Richards and their daughters Sam, eight, and three-year-old Lola.
The insider added: "Escorts were seen coming and leaving. In the end, Charlie was told that he wasn't welcomed at another Ritz property ever again. However, Sheen's manager Mark Burg told the Daily News: "It's not true. I spoke to the hotel and there was no damage to the room. We checked out and everything was fine. There were no escorts."

Arnold Schwarzenegger ditches grey beard
Everyone likes to experiment with their look now and again, but sometimes one has to admit that perhaps the original style was best. Arnold Schwarzenegger stepped out clean-shaven in LA recently after ditching the slightly dodgy grey beard which he was sporting recently.
The former Governor of California was back on form as he enjoyed lunch at Barneys New York. The 64-year-old looked sharp in white trousers and a white shirt teamed with a brown leather belt. The colour of his outfit complemented his deep tan, and he completed the East coast look with dark sunglasses. Arnold looked far younger without his grey beard, which he had neglected to dye to match his brown hair.
He caused quite a stir when he stepped out sporting the unflattering look recently, and prompted further comment when he teamed his facial hair with an uncharacteristic 'biker' style outfit. Schwarzenegger, who is a longtime fan of hitting the roads on his hog, was spotted wearing a chunky turquoise ring on his wedding finger as he headed out to lunch with his sons Patrick and Christopher.
