Gigi Hadid

E! NEWS -- Forget about the high heels. Diane von Fursteberg's fashion show is all about the dancing shoes!

While showcasing her newest collection at New York Fashion Week Sunday afternoon, the world-famous designer and House of DVF star put any and all stresses behind her when she participated in a dance party with her supermodels.

In several Instagrams posted on social media, fashion lovers can spot Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Lily Aldridge, Karlie Kloss and more having a little innocent fun on the runway.

Whether singing to Whitney Houston's "I'm Every Woman" or enjoying an impromptu disco train, these ladies had no problem showing off their looks while also moving to the beat.

What's more? Lily managed to start a conga line and Gigi led a singalong with makeup brushes serving as microphones. Not your average runway show, are we right?

After the show, the fun was only going to continue for several of the ladies. When asked how she was going to celebrate the rest of her Valentine's Day, Lily confessed she's hanging out with her girl Gigi!

"I have a Valentine's date with Gigi," she told E! News' Catt Sadler exclusively. "She's cooking dinner. She's amazing."

It's an added bonus to a busy day that Lily hopes to never forget anytime soon. "This show was amazing," she explained. "I was with my girls. It was very fun. I'm so thankful they had me."

She continued, "We like to have fun. We like to dance. It was a really special night. I have to say it was one of the most special memories because it was so different for us and it was really nice."

Luckily, there's plenty of video to capture all the moves. And yes, there's also a few selfies that are totally Instagram approved.

Austin Mahone

E! NEWS -- Sorry, Austin Mahone fans. He's really taken!

The "What About Love" singer sat down for an exclusive interview with E! News during the #InspIrie Golf Clinic during Irie Weekend and opened up about his girlfriend, Becky G. And what he has to say will make you swoon with jealousy!

Fans can take a good look at the cute couple on his Instagram page, where he posts adorable photos and videos of himself hanging out with his pop star girlfriend, whom he met two years ago at a recording studio. Although some celebs are anti-social media, Mahone loves it.

"It's a way I can tell my fans what I am doing and where I am going," he said.

Mahomies everywhere must be thankful for Instagram because they get some serious insights into his personal life with Becky G! So what about their relationship is so special? Their commonalities!

"What I love so much about Becky is I feel like I can just relate to her so much," he dished to E! News. "It's cool to date someone that does the same thing you do so you can express when you're stressed out about this and that, and they can be like 'I feel you and understand because I'm feeling the same.'"

He added, "So it's pretty cool!"

As with any celebrity relationship, distance can be a drag, but these two seem to have a good grip on it. He told us, "Distance is always tough, but we make it work."

The secret to their success is probably in their romantic dates! Mahone revealed one of his favorites was when he surprised her with a trip to the zoo.

"She didn't know where she was going, and I was just driving for two hours because this place was super far and she was going crazy in the car wondering where we were going," he explained. "We pulled up to this place—it's like a zoo. It's hard to explain, but you can go in and hold animals. We were playing with baby tigers, bears and little monkeys.

"It was so cute, and I had such a good time with her," he added.

Mark Ruffalo

Mark Ruffalo's social media game is on point.

The 47-year-old actor is an active user on Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr and Twitter, and on Friday morning, he gave E! Online an exclusive look at what a typical press day for Avengers: Age of Ultron is like. "I'm pirating @EOnline's Instagram today!" the movie star told his 1.48 million Twitter followers. The actor is promoting the movie in New York City with his co-stars Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans.

Before he got ready for ABC's Good Morning America, Ruffalo contemplated what to eat for breakfast. Though his mother made sure he had plenty of "leftovers" in the refrigerator, he decided to have a coffee and a bagel instead. "It's important to prep before any public appearance. Murray's is calming. Good Jewish Soul Food."

Shortly after arriving on set, he noticed a fan holding a sign that asked a very important question: "Where is my Black Widow movie?" Ruffalo, who plays Bruce Banner/The Hulk, wants to see Scarlett Johansson star in standalone movie, too.

"Um, Yeah! #BlackWidowMovie," he wrote in an Instagram caption. Ruffalo also took a selfie with MAGIC! guitarist Mark Pelli and snapped a candid shot of Evans.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is in theaters May 1.

Story By: G. H. HARDING

BEYONCE GREY --- You won't find the teaser trailer for one of 2015's most anticipated films in any movie theatre. Instead, head to Beyoncé's Instagram page. The singer subtly revealed her Fifty Shades of Grey involvement last night, posted a video that shows brief clips from the film accompanied by what sounds like a goth rendition of Beyonce's 2003 hit "Crazy In Love" and the hashtag #fiftyshades. We'll probably hear more from Beyonce when the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer formally arrives this Thursday, July 24th.

Beyoncé's connection with the adaptation's soundtrack was initially hinted back in March when Beyoncé's "Haunted" popped up in Fifty Shades footage that premiered at CinemaCon. While she didn't elaborate on more details last night regarding her contribution to the Fifty Shades soundtrack – she didn't even confirm whether or not she'd be on the disc – it'd be strange if Beyoncé wasn't involved and was simply getting fans hyped for the film's trailer by posting the teaser. Or maybe Beyonce, like every soccer mom in America, is just really eager for Fifty Shades of Grey to hit theatres around Valentine's Day 2015. Rita Ora, who will appear in the film, also re-posted the same clip.

Beyoncé is no stranger to soundtracks, but Fifty Shades of Grey is a rare instance where the singer contributes a track to a film that she doesn't also appear in. In 2002, Beyoncé recorded for "Work It Out" and "Hey Goldmember" to accompany her big screen debut in Austin Powers in Goldmember, and for 2006's The Pink Panther, Knowles offered up "A Woman Like Me" and the Number One single "Check On It."

She also lent her vocals to the Dreamgirls, Cadillac Records and Obsessed soundtracks, three more films where Beyoncé had a starring role. Only twice has she given a new track to a Beyoncé-less movie's soundtrack: "Wishing On a Star" for Roll Bounce and a cover of Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black" for 2013's The Great Gatsby soundtrack, which was excursively produced by partner-Jay Z.

GARNER GONE --- We lost a giant this weekend, James Garner. Pete Hammond’s tremendous memories in Deadline Hollywood were spot-on perfection. Take a read: “James Garner just made it all look too easy.

DONNY AT 50 --- Donny Osmond will celebrate fifty years in show business with his new album, Soundtrack of My Life, out January 13, 2015 on Verve.

According to Osmond, each track on the album tells a story about his life in the music business. While a full track list has not been released, a press release talks about Stevie Wonder's My Cherie Amour, which was the first record Osmond ever bought and he has even was able to get Wonder to play harmonica on the track.

Also on the album is Michael Jackson's Ben which was originally offered to Osmond but he was not able to accept because he was touring, so Jackson recorded the song himself.

Peter Gabriel's "Don't Give Up" is included as Osmond's wife used the song to encourage Donny, as is Elton John's "Your Song," the song that Osmond heard at one of his concerts at the moment he knew he would marry his wife (and she was going out with Donny's brother at the time!).

The album also will include three originals.

Also new is an app that Osmond has released that includes the stories behind the songs on the upcoming album and a short snippet from each. "After fifty years of entertaining, I wanted to do something unique to celebrate a milestone in my career, as well as the launch of my 60th album. These are more than just great songs; each holds personal significance to a long-lasting career. In essence, these songs are the soundtrack of my life . . . so far."

Kind of sounds like the game plan Micky Dolenz used in his latest solo album Remember.

BEACH BOY BRIAN --- From the new Rolling Stone: Brian Wilson was deep into writing songs for a new Beach Boys album when Mike Love pulled the plug on the group's 2012 reunion tour. "It was a shock," Wilson says. "I was so proud of how the Boys were singing. Then it just ended."

For a while, Wilson let the music go: "I was writing for the Boys, so I thought, 'What am I gonna do without them?'"

But last year he got the idea to bring in guest singers to finish the songs. Wilson had loved working with female vocalists since his early Beach Boys days, when he'd moonlight producing tracks for girl groups like the Honeys, which featured his first wife, Marilyn Rovell. He invited some of his favorite young singers to Ocean Way studios in Hollywood, including Lana Del Rey, Kacey Musgraves and Zooey Deschanel.

Frank Ocean rapped on "Special Love," though the track remains unfinished and may not make the album. A track with Nate Ruess from fun. was more successful: Wilson said he “Sounds a little like my brother Carl.”

Today, Wilson sits at the console at Ocean Way, recording Musgraves' vocals for "Guess You Had to Be There." He sips wheat grass juice and munches on a chocolate doughnut. The song is lighthearted and fun, but the session didn't start that way. "Kacey said, 'Boy, he really tells you when he doesn't like your pitch,'" says Wilson's manager.

Wilson is often passive in social situations, but in the studio he barks instructions to musicians and creates complex vocal arrangements on the spot. "When it's good it's good, when it's not – do it again," he says. "But after three tries, Kacey nailed it. I like the way she just slides over the notes – she has a very cool sound."

"Brian's really on it," says Don Was, the president of Blue Note Records, who also plays bass on the album (which is due out this fall). "I was knocked out by a couple of songs on that last Beach Boys record – 'Summer's Gone' ranks with his greatest work. I didn't expect that he's got a whole other album of stuff on that level."

The tracks come from all over the place: "Summer Means New Love" is a remake of a 1965 Beach Boys instrumental; "On the Island" is a space-age bossa nova with Deschanel; "Danny Boy" is a harmony-drenched take on the old standard, which features Jeff Beck on a track salvaged from aborted Wilson-Beck sessions last year.

"Last Song," the album's centerpiece, is a heartbreaking ballad that was recorded in two versions – one with a haunting vocal by Del Rey and one with Wilson's lead vocals. The song recounts his sadness about the Beach Boys' dissolution. "It started out being about lost love," says co-producer Joe Thomas. "But after the tour fell apart it became more about a missed opportunity for Brian and the guys to ride into the sunset together."

"I got really choked up playing bass on that track," adds Was. "There's something about Brian signing off with it, saying, 'This is it, this is my last song.' It's really intense. If 'Last Song' turned out to be his last song, can you imagine? Wow. That'd be some coda."

CLOSING NOTES --- From one vampire to another: Micky Dolenz will be front-and-center tonight at the Hollywood Bowl on L. A., checking out the performance by the legendary Alice Cooper. The two were part of the infamous Hollywood Vampires in the 70’s in Hollywood. The other members were Keith Moon, Harry Nilsson, Ringo Starr, Bernie Taupin and John Lennon …

Jade Starling, pioneering dance pop icon as lead singer of Pretty Poison (“Catch Me I’m Falling” – classic Top 10 ‘80s dance pop hit just featured on the final season of Breaking Bad) who’s about to release her first solo album, owes a great deal of her career longevity to the unfailing support of the gay community. The flame-tressed diva’s devotion to drag queens, in particular, was cited this week by First Things, America’s most influential journal of religion and public life, in an article titled Androgyny: “Drag queens are amazing,” she tells the anti-secular monthly. “Their artistry, their makeup, their hair. They are always stunning.” Back on the dance charts, Starling has just added an Aug. 9 EDM showcase at Steve Walter’s Cutting Room in NYC. She also performs at the DJ Times Expo Aug. 11 at Scores Atlantic City …

Fox’s Peter Rice, who is credited as the architect of the 24 limited series Live Another Day, was asked at yesterday’s TCA’s in L. A. will there be more? “I’d love to see another season of 24,” he said. “(Live Another Day) was twisted and fantastic. It’s a wonderful franchise, and when you look at the show itself, it has many more stories to tell.” That means yes! Count on another limited-run.
