Happy 20th Birthday, Zayn Malik! Our Fave Zayn-y GIFs

January 12 is a big day — One Direction‘s Zayn Malik turns 20! Though he’s no longer a teenager, that means he’s just another year wiser, AND another year hotter! While 2012 was obviously a huge year for the guys (touring, TWO albums dropped, and MUCH more), 2013 is bound to be an even bigger year for the new 20-year-old.

Oh, and not to mention he’s happily dating Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards. (They even have an adorable pup together!) To celebrate Zayn’s big day, we put together some our fave AMA-ZAYN GIFs for your viewing pleasure!

Enjoy, and make sure you send him LOTS of b-day love in the comments!

Dog Mistaken For Mini-Lion

Who knew there was such a thing as mini-lions?! Well, not exactly, but that’s what one Norfolk, Virginia man thought when he saw this pup. Apparently, a man called 911 thinking that Charles, this 3-year-old Labradoodle whose owner has him groomed to look like a lion, was actually a lion! Even though the 911 caller was obviously wrong, we can see where he was coming from — Charles really does look like a little lion! Watch the video to see the adorable pup playing around!

Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult Split: Report

Wenn

Wenn

It’s being reported that Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult have gone their separate ways. The couple, who met on the set of X-Men: First Class back in 2010, had been dating for just about two years. Apparently, the two split because of their busy schedules. Jen was off filming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire from September to December in both Atlanta and Hawaii, respectively, while Nick has been promoting his upcoming zombie rom-com Warm Bodies.

In addition to Jen’s Catching Firing shooting schedule, she was on the promotion trail for Silver Linings Playbook, and is currently in the midst of a very hectic awards season. On Thursday, Jen won a Critic’s Choice Award for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook, and is also nominated for a Golden Globe and an Academy Award (her second nomination in two years), as well. Also, Nick not only has Warm Bodies coming out on February 1, but his film Jack the Giant Slayer is set to hit theaters on March 1.

Though the two have reportedly split they will reunite to film X-Men: Days of Future Past, the sequel to X-Men: First Class, a little later this year. In the film, Jen plays mutant Mystique, the love interest to Nick’s Beast character.

Jen was never one to shy away from talking about Nick, as she told Elle magazine back in December, “[My boyfriend] is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I’m his best friend too. He’s my favorite person to be around and makes me laugh harder than anybody.”

What do you think about this possible split? Let us know in the comments.

Lady Gaga Pens Thought-Provoking Open Letter About Bullying to ‘Fashion Police’ Star Kelly Osbourne

Wenn

Lady Gaga is once again speaking out about bullying. The “Born This Way” singer recently penned an open letter to E!’s Fashion Police star Kelly Osbourne about comments she made regarding Gaga’s fans to Fabulous magazine. According to Kelly, who has struggled with weight her entire life, even though Kelly is the slimmest she’s ever been, Gaga’s fans continue to call her “fat” and tell her that she “should kill” herself.

This caught Gaga’s attention, and compelled her enough to write a very long, thought-provoking response. Gaga does apologize on behalf of her fans, saying, “I cannot control my fans, and I discourage them from any negativity and violence, because that is wrong and hurtful — and I do feel baldy that your feelings were hurt.” However, Gaga continues to point out that Kelly makes a living off judging others – specifically celebrities — on their appearance.

“I have empathy for you Kelly, but I feel it culturally important to note that you have chosen a less compassionate path. Your work on E! with the Fashion Police is rooted in criticism, judgment, and rating people’s beauty against one another. ‘Appearance’ is the most used reason for bullying in the world. Your show breeds negativity, and over the years has even become comedic in nature. It glorifies you and Joan Rivers pointing in the camera, laughing, and making jokes about artists and celebrities as if we are zoo animals.”

Gaga continued, urging Kelly that she didn’t write the letter to “take a crack at [her] character,” but she wants Kelly to “take responsibility and accountability for the example that [she is] setting for young people.” Finishing the letter, Gaga writes, “PS. And to any media or celebrities that happen to find this letter in their path, I hope you, too, consider the power of your voices. Lets work together and make 2013 a year of unity.”

Justin Timberlake Announces New Music Is on the Way

YouTube

Justin Timberlake is officially ready to come back to the music world. After taking a break from his music to act and pursue other ventures, the 31-year-old singer confirmed via a YouTube video that he has indeed returned to the studio to work on new music. JT first teased the news on Wednesday on Twitter by simply writing, “Thursday, January 10th, 2013 at 9:01 am PST…”

Now, come Thursday morning, Justin tweeted out the aforementioned video along with the message, “To whom it may concern…I think I’M READY! #JT2013″ The video starts off mysteriously enough, with a voice over of Justin saying, “Someone asked me the other day, ‘So, are you just done with music?’ It means more to me than anybody else in the world. Look, I’ve only done two albums in 10 years, that’s the way I really look at it. What does the next decade mean for me?”

He then continues to mention how much music really it means to him, and that he can’t expect to “torture” himself year after year to create new music since he wants it to fulfill him. He finishes off the video by saying, “I don’t want to put anything out that I feel like it’s something I don’t love. You just don’t get that every day. You have to wait for it.” Then it shows Justin going up to the mic and saying, “I’m ready.” After the video begins a countdown, and while it’s not exactly known what the countdown leads to, many assume it will be the release of a new single.

Though Justin has been gone from the music world, he’s hardly been out of the public eye. Since releasing his last album FutureSex/LoveSounds in 2006, he’s starred in films such as Friends With Benefits, The Social Network, and Trouble With the Curve. He also opened a restaurant called Southern Hospitality, and worked with the fashion line William Rast.  When it comes to his personal life, he married actress Jessica Biel in Italy on October 19, 2012 after nearly five years of dating.
