Jessica Simpson is reportedly planning a secret Hawaii wedding.

 

The 32-year-old singer and her fiance Eric Johnson are jetting off to the tropical paradise on December 21 with a group of their closest family and friends in tow and are believed to be tying the knot in an intimate ceremony.

 

A source told RadarOnline.com: "For the holidays, Jessica and Eric are going to Hawaii and they've invited a lot of their close friends and family. No one quite knows what is being planned, but family members are speculating that they could be planning a surprise wedding.

 

"Jessica and Eric had planned to get married before the end of the year, but because Jessica was helping her best pal Cacee with her wedding she got sidetracked. Then, her father's problems shattered her world and she discovered she was expecting."

 

Jessica - who is already expecting her second child after giving birth to daughter Maxwell Drew in May - and Eric have warned their pals they will be making a big announcement during the special getaway.

 

Despite her parents Joe and Tina's well-publicised decision to file for divorce in November amid rumours her father Joe is gay, the 'Fashion Star' host allegedly feels the time is right for her and Eric to make their union official and wants to get married before the New Year.

 

The insider added: "Jessica is certain though that she wants to get married before her baby is born, and isn't bothered if she's showing in any wedding pictures. She just wants a relaxed and intimate ceremony and has been dropping hints that the big day could be right before Christmas."

Alicia Silverstone has taken part in a new PETA campaign exposing cruelty ducks and geese suffer for their feathers.

 

The 'Clueless' actress appears as a spokesperson for animal rights organisation People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals in its latest effort to shed light on the inhumane practices used to pluck birds' feathers to produce down, which is then used in clothing, pillows and bedding.

 

She said: "No matter where it comes from, down is a product of cruelty to birds."

 

In the video expose released today (14.12.12), the 36-year-old actress states the live birds often have their feathers roughly yanked out of their bodies by workers which tears their flesh, which is then sown back together with a needle and thread without administering painkillers to the animals.

 

The video further alleges some ducks and geese used for down are also used for foie gras production - which involves the creatures being force-fed to fatten their livers.

 

Alicia - who is a committed vegan and previous recipient of the Sexiest Female Vegetarian award - said: "You can help stop this suffering by purchasing only down-free products and encouraging all your friends and family members to do the same. This is one simple way to make a huge difference for animals.

 

"Even in costumes I've said please don't use any feathers anywhere. I feel great not using down and feathers - there's no need for it at all."

Taylor Swift knows she dates men who are "dangerous" and "bad" for her.

 

The 23-year-old singer - who is currently romancing One Direction star Harry Styles and has previously been in relationships with Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas and John Mayer - says her new single 'I Knew You Were Trouble' is inspired by a "toxic relationship" that stems from a good girl falling for a bad boy, and she admits it is based on personal experience.

 

She told MTV News: "I had just gone through an experience that made me write this song about knowing the second you see someone like, 'Oh, this is going to be interesting. It's going to be dangerous, but look at me going in there anyway.

 

"I think that for me, it was the first time I ever kind of noticed that in myself, like when you are curious about something you know might be bad for you, but you know that you are going to go for it anyway because if you don't, you'll have greater regrets about not seeing where that would go, but I think that for me it all went along with this record that was pushing boundaries, like the sound of this record pushes boundaries, it was writing about something I hadn't written before."

 

The 23-year-old country star believes people go through different "phases" of what they are attracted to and just because you like bad boys now doesn't mean you still will in the future.

 

She added: "I think it's just like an opposites attract kind of thing. I don't know that all good girls are only attracted to all bad boys, I think everyone goes through phases as to what interests them."
