This is by far my favorite performance of the night. I couldn't take my eyes off the tv. Pink is doing "Try" and it was amazing.
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez made an attempt to work things out last week. Flash forward to Friday night, Justin and Selena hit up a Japanese restaurant in Hollywood. But something must have happened, because Selena stormed out after just 10 minutes before the appetizers had even arrived. She got into her car and took off. Justin was right behind her and went straight to Selena's house. But she wouldn’t let him in. He actually stood at the gate for several minutes shouting for Selena, but she didn't give in. He finally got the hint and took off, but as he was leaving, Selena appeared at the gate to watch him go. However, sometime during the night, he came back. And this time she let him in – he was seen leaving Selena's house Saturday morning. It may have had something to do with the following Tweet, which Justin posted after Selena locked him out, "Things aren't always easy. There is a lot of pressure. I'm figuring it all out. I'm trying. But I care, I notice, I still hear you."
"People" is presenting a pretty good case that Taylor Swift is now dating Harry Styles of One Direction. Last Thursday, Styles visited Taylor on the set of "X Factor" where she was rehearsing for her performance that night. A source told the magazine, "I had to literally do a double-take. He was smiling at her while she rehearsed. When she was done he jumped up on stage, picked her up, put her over his shoulder and carried her off stage. The whole crew was really surprised." And then they quoted "X Factor" host Mario Lopez, who said, "I said to Harry, 'What are you doing here.' And he sort of pointed toward Taylor." Mario went on to say that he saw Taylor and Harry "hand-in-hand."
Oprah’s talk show might not be on air anymore, but we all remember the giveaway episodes during which she’d give every member of the audience all her favorite products at the time. Last night on the "Oprah's Favorite Things" episode, she gave away coats, pajamas, sweaters, jewelry, purses, nail polish, make-up, an elliptical machine, a $5,000 tv, laptop, even gourmet pigs in a blanket. But none of that shocked the military families she catered to more than this: a Fiji Island paradise getaway at Namale Resort and Spa. See all the gifts HERE.
