Former Creed singer Scott Stapp has been struggling financially of late, claiming that a lot of his money has gone missing.

The singer was reportedly living out of his truck for a few weeks and is now staying at a hotel, according to a video he posted on his Facebook page Wednesday.

"Right now, I'm living in a Holiday Inn, by the grace of God, because there's been a couple of weeks where I had to live in my truck," he says. "I had no money, not even for gas or food. I went two days without eating because I had no money and ended up in an emergency room."

The singer has struggled with sub...

Matthew McConaughey, who was lauded for his work on HBO's "True Detective," is in talks to star in a TV adaptation of Stephen King's "The Stand."

Bill Cosby's Fall From Grace

Bill Cosby
Bill Cosby was no Cliff Huxtable. That's what more than a dozen women now claim, alleging the comedy icon - who starred as a loving dad on The Cosby Show - drugged and sexually abused them. In this week's cover story, PEOPLE interviewed eight of Cosby's accusers, as well as many people who have known and worked with the comedian, 77, over the decades.

"He marched the halls of NBC like he was Oz," says a writer who worked him on The Cosby Show. "You didn't say no to him."

Some of his accusers, such as Joan Tarshis, are coming forward for the first time. Others, including Tamara Green and B...

One Direction Score Fourth Number One Album With ‘Four’

One Direction Score Fourth Number One Album With ‘Four’: This We
'Tis the season where album sales are elevated and the music industry breathes a sigh of relief – until the deadness of January that is. While there have been few victory laps (besides Taylor Swift’s 1989), the numbers are stronger than earlier in 2014. That said, reliable chart-topper One Direction scored a fourth number one album with Four. Although 1D got it done, there is a ‘but’ to the scenario.

Four landed at a familiar spot for 1D, but did so in somewhat underwhelming fashion. Sure the 387,000 copies the British-Irish boy band moved is exceptional, but falls below both prognostic...

These Stars Need To Stuff Themselves This Thanksgiving

Skinny Celebs Who Need To Gain A Few Pounds
We get it - thin is in. But there's a "thin" line when it comes to how skinny is too skinny. And some celebrities take it a little too far.

Nicole Richie, above, famously dropped quite a bit of weight after appearing on the reality show "The Simple Life" with BFF Paris Hilton in 2003. A mom of two, she has been able to maintain her slender frame for several years.

She showed up to the LACMA 2013 Art + Film Gala earlier this month in a see-through gown that showed off tiny legs and skinny neck. We think a few curves on her frame would look pretty good!

Check out some other stars who we b...

Angelina Jolie Is Open To A Career In Politics
Angelina Jolie, who is promoting her latest film "Unbroken," told British ITV on Tuesday she would consider a political career "if I felt I could really make a difference."

One of the issues on her mind is the Syrian civil war. "We simply aren't doing enough," she told reporter Julie Etchingham.

Jolie has visited refugees from the conflict, which has resulted in thousands of deaths and millions of people displaced from their homes.

She explained: "We have overall a failing of international leadership when we have 51 million people displaced from conflict, more people displaced than sin...
