Demi Lovato Denies Dating One Direction’s Niall Horan, Even In The Wake Of His Vicious Squirrel Attack

Demi Lovato denies dating One DIrection's Niall Horan

One Direction heart-throb Niall Horan is having a pretty crappy week. Not only is Demi Lovato insisting that they’re not dating, but he’s also nursing injuries sustained by a particularly brutal squirrel attack! That’s rough dude, but it happens to the best of us. Right guys? Or maybe it just happens in John Hughes movies. Despite being seen having an “intimate” dinner at L.A.’s Pick Taco following the VMAs on September 6th, Demi basically gave Niall the “Let’s Just Be Friends” talk via Teen Vogue.”He’s a really awesome, sweet guy, but not my boyfriend,” she says. “I’m in a place right now where I really need to focus on myself. Obviously, I’m still going to like people – or love them – but I need to not be in a relationship for a while because I need to be okay with being alone, first.” The newly minted X Factor judge has been shooting down dating rumors left and right in the past few weeks. Is it for real, or does the lady protest too much?

Rejection’s gotta sting, but probably not as much as Niall’s squirrel injuries. The boy band singer was seem limping out of a London television studio on crutches, and has recently undergone surgery to repair torn ligaments in his knee as the apparent result of a squirrel run-in.  “I got attacked by a squirrel in Battersea Park,” he told a British magazine. “They’re dangerous. It’s rare. I’ve torn most of the ligaments in my knee.” What the hell kind of squirrel was it!? We’re kind of thinking (wondering, hoping) that Niall is kidding about the whole squirrel thing, otherwise we’re going to have to think twice every time we go for a stroll in the park. But for now, we’re going to add it to our list of celebs who have gone head to head with the wild…and lost. Check out more bizarre celebrity animal injuries in the gallery below!

Lady Gaga Tweets Pic Of Her Black Eye, Still Feels “Woozy” After Concussion Scare

Lady Gaga posts a picture of her black eye on Twitter

Leave it to Mama Monster to still look fab and fierce even with a huge black eye! Lady Gaga posted a pic to her Twitter today showing off her shiner, the result of an onstage mishap that happened this Sunday during a New Zealand concert. “Emerging from hours of sleep,” she wrote. “Still remiss if I should go outside, with this clonker I may be of questionable styling.” If you ask us, it just looks like some kind of funky eye shadow. Work it, Gaga!

For those of you just tuning in, a dancer accidentally gave Gags a whack with a metal pole right in the middle of “Judas.” Oh the betrayal! But ever the pro, Lady Gaga didn’t miss a note and kept right on singing. In fact, she finished the remaining 16 songs! “I want to apologize,” she reportedly told the crowd after the incident. “I did hit my head and I think I may have a concussion. But don’t you worry, I will finish this show.” The poor pop princess was indeed left with a concussion, in addition to her bruised left eye and cheek.

Despite the setback, Gaga hasn’t slowed down much, continuing on to Australia in order to bring her Born This Way Ball to her adoring aussie fans, many of whom have been sending her well wishes and good vibes. “Thank you so much for all the thoughtful messages,” she tweeted on Monday. “I feel a bit woozy but a little better everyday. Very happy to be in beautiful Australia.” Watch the whole freaky moment in the clip above. If it doesn’t prove that Lady Gaga is the hardest working gal in show-biz, then we don’t know what will!
