Madonna & Guy Ritchie are using their kids while they battle it out on the red carpet
It was a red carpet battle between Madonna and her ex-husband Guy Ritchie — and Rocco and Lourdes were caught in the middle. First Madge brought her “mini-Madge” Lourdes to the premiere of Nine on Dec. 15. Then last night, Dec. 17, Guy struck back!

How great does Fergie’s peachy color scheme look?
Fergie opted for a fresh-faced, monochromatic look at the NYC premiere of her film Nine on Dec. 15. Unlike traditional smokey-eyed red carpet looks, we love how beautiful and soft Fergie looks in this palette of hues.

Nic, we know you need your quiet time, but this is just silly! Who quiets photographers at a movie premiere?
Nicole, the first time you sssh’d us this fall, we were entertained and intrigued. But now, after you did it second time at the NYC premiere of Nine on Dec. 15, we were just outright confused. What does this mean? Are you not-so-inconspicuously hiding something…like a baby brother or sister for daughter Sunday Rose, perhaps? At the American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Nov. 22, you held your stomach AND quieted the paparazzi. We speculated then that you might have a bun in the old oven.
