WE love our celeb news because, hey, if we can’t join them, the least we can do is read about them, right? As usual, some of our favourite celebrities made headlines, and no … they’re are not all for the right reasons.
Everyone listen up. Taylor Swift and her new One Direction boy toy Harry Styles are in love and they want you to know it. And what better way for them to profess their young love towards each other than by re-enacting one of the most romantic on-screen poses – the Dirty Dancing “lift”?
Yup, Swift, 23, and Styles, 18, recreated the famous scene from the classic 1987 movie where Patrick Swayze lifts Jennifer Grey up over his head and spins her around.
Well, we have a picture to prove that it really did happen last Friday night.
A party-goer at last week’s Z100’s Jingle Ball after-party tweeted a photograph of the new couple with the caption: “Harry Styles gives Taylor Swift a ‘lift’ at the One Direction MSG After Party.”
Apparently the love fest continued all night long with the couple seen cuddling and kissing each other.
Sharm says: How much weight do I have to lose before Harry Styles gets to lift me up like that?
A sad child
He may be a huge star, but Hugh Jackman still feels the pain of being abandoned by his mother when he was younger. The actor broke down during a recent 60 Minutes interview and shared that his mother had left him when he was eight, leaving him with no maternal figure in his life.
“As I went off to school, when I came back, there was no one there in the house. The next day there was a telegram from England – mum was there. And then that was it. I don’t think she thought for a second it would be forever. I think she thought it was, ‘I just need to get away, and I’ll come back.’”
Jackson’s mother relocated to England and never returned. “My father is my rock. It’s where I learned everything about loyalty, dependability, being there day in, day out, no matter what,” he said.
Sharm says: Aww … poor thing. Come here, let me give you a big hug.
She ain’t no diva
Lea Michele is no diva and she wants you to know it. During an interview for an upcoming Marie Claire issue, the Glee actress addressed the pesky rumours that she’s a demanding diva.
“I am a very outspoken person, and if something makes me uncomfortable, you will know that it makes me uncomfortable, but that’s as far as it goes,” she said. “I can assure you that (the rumours ) aren’t real. It’s super-frustrating sometimes, and I used to fight back, but now I feel like, ‘You can think what you want to think about me – that’s OK’. I have the most amazing fans, friends, and family members who have stood by me, and I know that my cast and crew really enjoy working with me. That’s all that matters.”
She also talked about her boyfriend Cory Monteith, saying: “I don’t even remember a time when he wasn’t my boyfriend. No one knows me better than Cory. No one knows what it’s been like to go through this more than he does. For the first time in my life, I feel really settled and happy. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.”
Sharm says: You do realise that more than one person has claimed that Lea is a diva, right? Just ask her number one hater, Joan Rivers. In this case, I’m Team Joan.
An epic love triangle
Rihanna wants Chris Brown – who is still in touch with his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran, and that just doesn’t fly with the Bajan singer.
Brown met up with Tran in Paris last weekend and rumour has it that it didn’t go down well with on-again girlfriend Rihanna.
The singer tweeted a bunch of random profanity-laden things, which many presume were aimed at Brown, who didn’t respond.
However, a day later, the Diamonds singer tweeted a snapshot of her cuddling with Brown with the caption, “Miss you.”
Sharm says: OMG, make up your mind girl. Do you want to be with Chris or what?
