You can uncross your fingers and keister your rabbit’s foot, you guys. According to the “Tonight” singer’s rep, Chris Brown and Rihanna are not dating, but rather merely friends. We should hope so! These two have come too far and taken up too many existentially depressing blog inches to turn back the clock now!
The rumors of their illicit canoodling were fueled this weekend when RiRi and CB were both spotted at nightclub Greystone Manor in Hollywood around the same time. But until we see Chris Brown and Rihanna ride away from a club in an elaborate horse-drawn carriage to the strains of Pachelbel’s “Canon,” we’re going to assume these kinds of run-ins are pure accidental. If that doesn’t convince you, keep in mind that Chris’ current lady friend, model Karrueche Tran, was also in attendance at the bar on Sunday, making the likelihood of a late-night rendezvous between exes slim to none. We like those odds.
Stretch your calves for a moonlight stroll and dry clean your luxurious bear skin rug: Taylor Swift and Zac Efron are allegedly “going apple picking,” if you get our drift (Ew, what? We’re sorry). Us Weekly reports that the “Mine” singer and the New Year’s Eve actor were spotted “deep in conversation and very giggly” at L.A. restaurant Pace on January 6. Though, haha, if we were dating everyone we had deep, giggly conversation with, we would be dating you, dear readers. Unless…wait, are we dating you?
While Efron has been more or less single since his split with Vanessa Hudgens in December 2010, Taylor has allegedly been getting her tiny porcelain heart smashed to bits in 20122 by the likes of Jake Gyllenhaal, among others. Personally we can totally see this couple working: Efron and Swift are both gorgeous, they both have great hair, they both…um….probably have many other fine qualities in common. Either way, Zac can pretty much count on mid-tempo ballad with his name on it. No, literally. It’ll be called “Dear Zac.” We’re calling it now.
See what we did there? According to the Daily Mail, rumor has it that Katy Perry‘s parents are dying to set up a meet-and-marry-our-daughter between Katy and devout Denver Broncos stud Tim Tebow at their church in Huntington Beach. Other than the fact that Katy isn’t even legally divorced yet, we could sort of see this happening. Tim’s got a good job, Perry seems to like ‘em sweaty and bearded, plus we wouldn’t kick Tebow out of bed for reading Psalms too loud, if you get our drift. Unless Tim was reading them, like, way, way, way too loud. We have to get eight hours of sleep or we look puffy.
His handsome muscliness aside, we could totally see Katy’s religious parents being drawn to Tim for his openness about his Christian faith (especially after a bad boy type like Russell Brand). “Katyâ€™s mom firmly believes the best cure for heartache is to quickly fall in love again,” the Daily Mail’s source claims. “In her mind, Tebow is the perfect guy for her daughter.” Oh, sorry, wait? We couldn’t hear you over the awesomeness of Tim’s skin-tight football pants. What were you saying? What do you all think?
We the people, vote you Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, the cutest couple ever. Seriously, if there were an award for being adorable and ridiculously attractive together, they would win it. The People’s Choice Awards took place last night, and the Vampire Diaries duo — yay for the kiss in the last episode, BTW — arrived looking pretty fly. Ian, or the “Smolderholder,” wore a natty gray suit and looked like he was straight out of a commercial. Nina wore a sweet, green Elie Saab dress, which the whole theater got a good look at as she won the award for Favorite TV Drama Actress. Being the good boyfriend, Ian tweeted, “Congratulations Nina!!! You won!!!! People DO like you. You rock babe, truly.” We’re feeling the love, guys! Read more…
Shakira really knows how to pull out all the stops. She attended the FIFA Ballon D’Or Gala yesterday along with boyfriend, footballer Gerard Pique. You couldn’t miss her, with that sequined strapless, fishtail red gown. It’s a tad OTT, but Shaki pulls it off. Possibly because her makeup was so discreet, and her new bob was coiffed so well. We’re totally digging the soft waves. You can’t beat the slihouette on her, either. Besides, the man attached to her arm, ain’t too shabby at all. All together, her entire ensemble and styling is so vintage. Do you like Shakira’s retro-vixen look?
Well, are they? There’s a very fine line between “insanely hot friends” and “insanely hot friends with benefits.” If rumors are true, Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana are currently hurtling over that line on a rocket-powered, Cupid-navigated hovercraft of love. So to speak. E! Online reported today that The Words co-stars are allegedly canoodling, citing one source who declared, “They are totally dating.” Hmmm, that sounds exactly like what we would scream out a cab window if we saw Bradley and Zoe kissing on the street. We’ll go ahead and file it as People’s Sexy Evidence A.
Saldana’s rep denied the two were romantically linked after they were spotted clubbing together last month, though it did nothing to quash gossip that the two spent their holidays together on ski trip. All we’re saying is, Zoe and fiance Keith Britton split in November after 11 years together. That very same month, the world was reminded of Bradley’s smokey hotness via his People’s Sexiest Man Alive win. Mere sexy coincidence? We sexy hope not. Oh, how we sexy hope not.
We’re imagining Russell Brand looking forlornly out a tavern window while a light snow starts to fall. Meanwhile Katy Perryâ€¦well, Katy Perry laughs and swims with dolphins, but inside you know she’s hurting! According to Us Weekly, the reason those Katy Perry bikini pics snapped earlier this week in Kauai featured the singer sans both husband and wedding ring is allegedly because the couple is reeling after an emotional holiday blowout. “They had a massive fight,” their source reports. “She was like, ‘F–k you. I’m going to do my own thing.’ Russell replied, ‘Fine, f–k you too.’” Hmm, that dialogue certainly seems plausible. Did they both happen to have Santa hats on? That’s how we’re picturing it, anyway.
The couple, who has been married since October 2010, had reportedly planned to spend Christmas in the Russell’s native U.K. After their alleged tiff, only Brand was spotted with a friend in a pub in Coverack, Cornwall. Hey, we understand. Whenever we have relationship problems, we like to drown our sorrows in pub food and skimpy bikinis barely able to contain our bosoms, too. Well, mainly the former. Not so much the latter. What do you think? Does spending the holidays on different continents signal the end of one of our favorite 30 Cutest Couples of 2011, or is Katy’s lack of a ring probably just tan line-related?
We’re gonna level with you, dear readers. Here at the FABLife, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will get our vote for the cutest couple every year until the end of time. That’s just the way it goes! So, to make it fair for all of the other adorable love birds out there, we’ve taken them out of the competition. But we’ve made Robsten the gold standard by which we measure and rank the rest of the sweethearts! So please Twihards, don’t send us angry letters.
Sure, 2011 was largely seen as the Year of the Breakup. That doesn’t mean love didn’t flourish! We’ve asked stars who they think should earn the title of “Cutest Couple 2k11,” and their answers ranged from the predicable, to the, err … not so predictable. Tehmina Sunny and Amadou Ly both share our Robsten 4Lyfe sentiments, whereas David Cook and Chelsea Rendon were more Selena Gomez/Justin Bieber people. Roots drummer Questlove was pumped that puppet pals Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy got back together in the Muppets reboot, while Robin Thicke felt that Charlie Sheen and his nose candy made the perfect duo. Err, adorable, right? Watch the vid to see what other celebs had to say!
So, should Paula Patton be hiding her face in her hands over husband Robin Thicke‘s graphic description of their sex life in Essence? Or should Paula Patton be dropping copies of husband Robin Thicke’s graphic description of their sex life in Essence from a helicopter over the city? We’re honestly asking, because we just cannot tell anymore. “I like to try to get her into double-digit orgasms as much as possible. It doesn’t happen all the time, but when I’ve got my mojo and my swag, it happens,” Paula’s R&B singer spouse bragged to the mag. Oh, wait…duh, it’s helicopter option!
Either way it sounds like the Mission Impossible-Ghost Protocol star and Thicke are going strong after 18 years and one son, Julian Fuego. Thicke also discussed his experience as one half of an interracial relationship, explaining, “You can’t understand it until you are with somebody every day and you have a child that you know is Black, you then understand that, wow, what a different experience Black people and in particular Black women have to go through.” Okay, Robin, we’ll give you a pass on spilling the intimate details. Even though Paula’s hand is going to be so sore from all that high fiving.
Ben Affleck‘s hair tops our list of Things We Hope To Never See in 2012. Sure we know it’s for his role in Argo (which he’s also directing), but couldn’t he at least find a way to make it work? Slick it back or wear a hat or something? The Bieber do doesn’t look good on anyone — including Bieber himself. Violet Affleck, you seem like a smart one – we implore you to steal some scissors and go to Town (LOL, film reference) on your dad’s locks.
