Justin Bieber is reportedly planning a lavish wedding for him and fiance Hailey Baldwin. The couple got engaged while they holidayed in Barbados earlier this month (Jul18), and the singer took to Instagram two days later to officially announce he was marrying the model. Though it's still very early days in their engagement, a source has alleged that the Sorry hitmaker is already making preparations for the big day. "Originally, Justin wanted an intimate wedding like his dad had earlier this year, but now he's in two minds - part of him would like to go all-out and give Hailey a day fit for a princess," they told Britain's Heat magazine. "He's talking about hiring a huge estate for about 500 guests and having her dad (actor Stephen Baldwin) officiate. Hailey's just happy they're engaged and is going with the flow, but Justin's drawing up guest lists and auditioning wedding planners online as he wants it to happen ASAP." The source added that the Grammy winner wants to host the "wedding of the year" fit for "Hollywood royalty." In his engagement reveal, Justin insisted his 21-year-old bride-to-be is the "love of my life", and jeweller Jack Solow, whom sold Justin the engagement ring rumoured to be worth $500,000 (£380,000), recently recalled the moment the 24-year-old realised he had found the perfect diamond for her. "I showed him all the details and all the intricacies like I would give any other 25-year-old (sic) boy who would come to the office to buy an engagement ring," he told the publication. "He seemed really excited. He was looking inside the diamond with the loupe (magnifying glass), and said, 'I think I see Hailey's face.'" The fashion star's aunt, Kim Basinger, has claimed that Hailey's 25-year-old sister Alaia and 22-year-old cousin Ireland will both be bridesmaids on the day.
Christina Aguilera is joining the residency stars in Las Vegas. The Genie in a Bottle singer is to headline a "multi-sensory escape" in the theatre Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez previously called home this summer (19).

The Shape of Water, about a woman who falls in love with a sea creature, has taken the top honours at the Oscars. Frances McDormand won best actress for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and persuaded every female nominee to stand with her in a night full of statements about inclusion. Britain's Gary Oldman was named best actor for playing Winston Churchill in World War Two epic Darkest Hour. The Shape of Water won the most Oscars with four, including best film. In her acceptance speech, McDormand put her Oscar on the floor in front of her and addressed executives as the female nominees got to their feet. It was one of the most powerful and symbolic moments of the night. "Look around, ladies and gentlemen, because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed," she said. "Don't talk to us about it at the parties tonight - invite us into your office in a couple of days, or you can come to ours, whatever suits you best - and we'll tell you all about them." Her request came amid a push for greater equality in film - especially in the wake of the Hollywood sexual harassment scandal.
