Our heads are still swimming from the news that America’s First Couple Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have split, but when rumors that he had a fling with Victoria’s Secret Angel Barbara Palvin started to surface, it was enough to break our ever-Beliebing heart. The pair hung out last week when Biebs was performing at the VS’s annual fashion show in NYC. Like any 18-year-old rock star, he posed it up with the models, including the 19-year-old Palvin. She tweeted pictures of them together, and they reportedly went to see Lion King on Broadway the next night.
This apparently rubbed Selena the wrong way, who re-tweeted a photo of Justin with Barbara on the day their split was announced, simply captioning it “…” So much Twitter drama, you guys! The post has since been deleted, but fans are furious and accusing Barbara of luring the Biebs away. “Hey everyone. please calm down. he is all yours!! please ” Palvin wrote on twitter when faced with all of the Belieber hate. “Last time I’m saying it. please calm down.there is nothing going on w him.i met him and did a pic w him. wouldn’t u do the same?:) #friendship.” We’re just hoping all of this breakup madness is just another stolen laptop-style hoax. Check out 15 photos of Bieber’s alleged “other woman” in the gallery below!
Another day, another magazine cover featuring a virtually naked Rihanna. “GQ’s man of the year?! When will your fave? #histoRih #GQ,” RiRi tweeted while leaking her December GQ cover earlier today. Now, we’re not saying Rihanna would never slip into a pantsuit on the cover of Women’s Wear Daily or anything. It would just have to be a pantsuit featuring assless chaps and a flap to show off her Isis tattoo. As we may have mentioned one or twenty thousand times, however, if we had Rihanna’s body, we’d get Marie Claire on the phone so fast and demand a naked cover. Or Forbes maybe. Even Cat Fancy, if they’d have us, which they would because we would look so crazy good. That hair alone!
As you might recall, RiRi has stripped down for GQ thrice before (as well as for every other magazine ever), but this new cover is on par with the painted-on Daisy Dukes red-headed Rihanna sported on Rolling Stone last year. No, seriously. The Daisy Dukes were actually painted on. If we remember correctly, they were also melting. Remember? If you don’t, check out our gallery of Rihanna’s 20 Sexiest Magazine Covers Of All Time. Obviously none will be this amazing, but still. Still.
Were we completely shocked by Friday’s stories of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez breaking up? No. Were we feeling melancholy about the whole thing? A little. So, are rumors of their quick reunion lifting our spirits on this Monday morning? Of course! Nothing is coming from a super-reliable source, mind you, but we will grasp at the rumors that following a breakup that supposedly happened over a week ago, these two pop cuties may be working things out. Here’s everything we’ve heard so far:
Justin’s in NYC for a show tonight, and Selena was in the suburbs to promote her Kmart line over the weekend, so according to the Daily Mail, the two have “tentative plans” to meet up tonight.
On Saturday night, Justin made the link to that other destroyed pop supercouple, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears, that all of us were afraid to mention. He sang “Cry Me a River,” JT’s breakup ode to Brit, in concert in Boston. His heartfelt delivery makes it seem like he’s not exactly happy with whatever is going on in his love life.
Can we please actually be having a nightmare and once we wake up and hit the alarm discover this story never existed? Because even if it proves to be false, we feel permanently traumatized. Kevin Clash, the man behind Elmo, is currently taking a leave of absence from Sesame Street to “protect his reputation” after being accused of having sex with a 16-year-old boy years ago. According to TMZ, Clash admits to having a relationship with the man, now 23, but insists that it began after the accuser was of age.
“It was between two consenting adults and I am deeply saddened that he is trying to make it into something it was not,” he told the site.
The Sesame Workshop says that lawyers conducted an investigation and believe Clash’s side of the story. But the accuser say the show is trying to silence him to protect the Elmo brand. Read more…
We are both shocked and not shocked about the bombshell: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are no longer the cutest couple on the planet, sources told E! News. They apparently broke up a week ago, but they took a page from political publicists and dumped this news on a Friday night. While on the one hand, we’re sad these two kids couldn’t work things out, on the other, can anyone be surprised that two such young kids weren’t ready to settle down forever? They’re at the peaks of their careers and looks. Besides that, E!’s source echoes the rumors we’ve been hearing about these two for months: “Because of their crazy schedules, it was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship,” this mysterious insider said.
The pair had been together, publicly at least, since February 2011 — that’s an eternity in young celebrity time. Especially given the pressures of Bieber’s fans, both the ones on Twitter and the crazies like Mariah Yeater, who claimed Biebs was her baby daddy last year. But mostly, they had a lot of too-cute-for-words moments in front of the cameras. In memoriam of their relationship, here are 20 photos of Justin and Selena.
It’s on all of us to pitch in and aid those affected by Hurricane Sandy, but it touches a cold, hard part of our soul to see famous people step up and do what’s right following a tragedy. They just have so much more money than us! In addition to Bruce Springsteen, Christina Aguilera, Sting and Billy Joel reminding America to have a heart via song at last week’s Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together telethon, plenty of celebs did their part this week. For example…
We probably should have know when we saw him blowing those air kisses on the Catching Fire set that Sam Claflin was our kind of celebrity. The Hunger Games star’s adorably cheesy Twitter account only confirmed our suspicions. Everything he writes is exactly what we’d write if we’d suddenly found ourselves in a multimillion dollar franchise! To wit, Sam’s renamed Follow Friday…Follow Finnick Friday. Of course, that’s only one of the eye-rollers that we spotted on his Twitter. Our top 10 favorite are…
We fully credit our former intern Tionah Lee with a new theory that kind of blows our minds after looking at side-by-side photos like the ones above: “I’ve come to the conclusion that 1D’s Harry Styles and American Horror Story’s Evan Peters are long lost brothers,” she tweeted last night. Just look at their noses, eyebrows, and mouths! This is almost as uncanny as that photo of George Clooney and Abraham Lincoln, isn’t it? So now we are just going to float this out there and see if people start reporting it as true. That’s how facts work these days.
Speaking of rumors, Perez Hilton came up with a wild one today, too: that the One Direction singer is Taylor Swift’s new boyfriend. And this is based on about as much factual info as the Evan Peters theory. First, Styles told Cosmopolitan UK that he’s got his eye on someone special, and Perez notes, “Now, Harry has been rockin’ a paper airplane necklace. But all of a sudden (okay, around the same time his Cosmo UK interview hit), the now-single Swifty is seen wearing one too.” Read more…
Oh good, we can stop picturing Kirstie Alley and John Travolta having hot Scientologist sex now. Oh, wait, that image is already burned into our heads forever, even though Alley says it never happened. And actually, she never DID say it happened, even though the second we all saw quotes about her Look Who’s Talking co-star being the “greatest love” of her life, that’s what we assumed. Actually, she told Jimmy Kimmel last night, their relationship was never sexual, nor was her loving friendship with Patrick Swayze.
“Can I just clarify? They were not sexual affairs,” she said. “I didn’t say the word affair ever. … John Travolta is and has remained one of my best friends for almost 25, 26 years — before he was married, but I was married. But I fell in love with him.”
Actually, she said the feeling was mutual, and it evolved into a “beautiful friendship” between her, John and his wife, Kelly Preston. She even got their blessing to write about all this in her book (the reason she’s doing all these weird interviews), The Art of Men (I Prefer Mine al Dente).
What’s really interesting, however, is that she also basically confirms everything us regular people assume about every single on-screen couple: that it’s impossible for them not to fall in love IRL. Read more…
Oh, did you guys ever notice that Academy Award-nominated actress Jennifer Lawrence is clinically obese? Oh no, because only a total moron would think that? Clearly you are not a film executive! “I eat like a caveman, I’ll be the only actress who doesn’t have anorexia rumors,” the Hunger Games star says in her new Elle interview. “In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress, I’m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach.” While some people might take umbrage with a thin, smoking hot 22-year-old claiming to be obese by anyone‘s definition of the word, we think it’s great. It’s not only great, in fact. It’s necessary.
You might recall back in April, when some critics were ragging on Jen’s size as unbelievably large and well-fed for a Panem resident. Lawrence allegedly scoffed it off, but apparently this has become a running theme in her rise to stardom. Personally, we’re glad Jennifer Lawrence has been consistently real with us with regards to how Hollywood perceives her…because it reminds us how totally divorced from reality Hollywood standards can be. If conventionally thin and attractive Jennifer Lawrence is obese, then clearly it’s the system that’s screwed up, not any one individual’s weight. If Jennifer Lawrence is “obese,” then the center cannot hold, people!
