Whoever invented the Kiss Cam is truly the unsung hero of our time. In addition to making thousands of couples spontaneously smooch on television, he or she also managed to coax a sweetly awkward semi-make out from the lips of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez at the Lakers vs Spurs game last night. Who else has that kind of power? Can any camera be a Kiss Cam, if you insist it loud enough to the other passengers on the F train?
These photos really bring us back to the first time we saw Justin and Selena kiss. Remember their extremely PG-13 vacation in Hawaii last May? And to think, these two have been together for over a year. How time flies when there isn’t some kind of horny camera trained on you 24/7! While the rest of the Staples Center was watching them, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber were actually watching the game. “LET’S GO SPURS!!! LET’S GO!!,” Selena tweeted, along with a photo of her ticket. We guess it’s only right we don’t wield control over the Kiss Cam. If we did, these two would never stop kissing. Selena, what would you think about that? Seriously, be honest.
Rihanna knows what’s important in life: good friends, giant beers, fabulous gold Louboutins worn with jean shorts and a t-shirt, and, of course, the L.A. Lakers, whom the singer rooted for at last night’s home game in L.A. Also, beers. Did we mention the beers?
Luckily those are all also excellent ways to celebrate the news that Rihanna is reportedly the top-selling digital artist of all time, racking up 47.5 million digital downloads since she started killing it in 2005. News like this calls for a few more amazing pairs of Louboutins. Did you think we were going to say a few more amazing beers? We were.
There you are, minding your business while the Lakers lose to the Dallas Mavericks, when all of a sudden you feel your lips being drawn slowly but surely towards your best friend’s mouth. You’re helpless to resist: the eyes of the kiss cam are upon you. Like two sweaty, adorable magnets, Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly kissed courtside at Game 1 of the Western Conference second series. At least the Step Brothers co-stars’ triumphant make-out gave fans something to watch that didn’t involve their home team getting destroyed. If the force of Ferrell and Reilly locking lips isn’t enough to bring home a win, what will? The kiss cam is giving it everything its little electronic heart can give!
Gahhhh! We can barely stand the cuteness of Mark Wahlberg smooching his son Michael as they watch the L.A. Lakers game against the Dallas Mavericks last night. The only thing cuter than the two of them is… David Beckham‘s adorable interactions with son Romeo! It is killllling us! Sure, it’s easy to have a ball when you have floor seats to the Lakers, but these dads look like the only thing that matters to them is showing the boys a good time. The question is, who is the cutest?
Celebrities are often seen lurking courtside at the Staples Center for L.A. Lakers games. Sometimes you get your traditional cool celebs like Jack Nicholson and Leo DiCaprio just chillin’ in the stands, sometimes you get the mind-blowing combination of Chloe Sevigny and Pauly D, and sometimes you get a bunch of people who are so starving they don’t care who sees them stuff their faces. At last night’s game, there must have been something in the air that was making people feel hunger pangs, because everyone was chowing down. Take a look at who was eating what as the Lakers defeated the Cavs.
Really, Biebs? Courtside seats at the Lakers game wasn’t cool enough? Which one of these half dozen just-your-typical-night-as-Justin-Bieber experiences wouldn’t rank among your average 16-year-old boy’s most awesome night ever?!
Stars of varying caliber flocked to the Stapes Center last night to schmooze, network and cheer on the Lakers in their game against the Denver Nuggets. Zac Efron sat sandwiched between two older dudes (agents? managers?) while a pregnant Ellen Pompeo cuddled court-side with hubby Chris Ivery. Kim Kardashian was also on the scene in sky high heels, while MIA gave the peace sign to the cameras as she shuffled by.
