Can You Guess Whose Tattoo This Is?

Do you ‘Believe’ this singer got an owl tattooed on their arm? We can! While the meaning behind this ink is somewhat mysterious, the singer posted this picture on their Instagram with the caption, “Up all night,” so this pop star could be a notorious night owl. Being one of the biggest pop stars right now coupled with a rigorous tour schedule and continuous recording sessions could be the reason behind this pop star’s insomnia.

Anyhoo (see what we did there), can you guess whose tattoo this is?

Bruno Mars Performs ‘When I Was Your Man’ on ‘Jimmy Kimmel’

Bruno, you cut us to the core! Mars was on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ last night to perform his song ‘When I Was Your Man’ off his hit LP ‘Unorthodox Jukebox.’

Donning a Sacramento Kings hat with piano and organ accompaniment, Bruno’s voice is the star of the show and rightfully so. The vocals on the recorded version of this song are impeccable and his live version on ‘Kimmel’ showcases just how talented Mars is.

Now that we’ve raved about Mr. Mars, we must ask the question. Can you be our man?

Was Joe Jonas Outed As Gay?

A controversial blog post by a photographer (via Rickey) is causing quite the stir! And why is that? Rob Hoffman, who regularly snaps pics of the Jonas Brothers, ranted on his blog about Taylor Swift and her path towards eventual spinsterhood. The photog had some particularly choice words for Ms. Swift. He wrote:

How many break-ups is it going to take for you girls to realize that Taylor Swift isn’t a good role model unless your dream in life is to die alone?

And if you’re going to defend her for her music, let me tell you now that saying you believe in any of Taylor Swift’s lyrics is like saying you trust your accountant because he’s been accused of tax evasion nine times.

The only redeeming quality of any boy band these days is betting on which one is going to date Taylor Swift, and as a result, come out of the closet 2 months later.

Hold. The. Phone. Did Hoffman just out Joe Jonas as gay? Possibly. Jonas was Taylor’s first high-profile boyfriend when they dated for a few months back in 2008. As the JoBros photographer, Hoffman may have some insider information as to the real reason Joe and Swift split. Still, we take this blog post with a grain of salt. Hoffman could have been using the “come out of the closet 2 months later,” phrase to prove his point or really drive home  his hatred for Taylor.

But the biggest reason we don’t buy into this? Jonas has had public relationships with countless music stars, models and actresses in the past. It is currently rumored that Joe Jonas is dating Blanca Eggenschwiler, a Swiss model. Another day, another rumor. Keep doin’ you, Joe.

Katy Perry Wins Big at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Very nice way to start the new year, indeed, Katy! Perry took home the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Pop Artist, Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Music Video, with her KatyCats winning for Favorite Music Fan Following. Phew! Did you catch all that?

Perry said the Fan Following Award meant the most to her saying, “I think my fans support me so much. They’re kind of like my friends.”

Keeping her speech short and sweet, Perry did hint that she would be putting out new music in the near future, but surely did not say it with any urgency. She remarked, she would be back to “entertaining you… again. So back to the studio I go.”

With the whirlwind couple of years Perry has had, we don’t blame her for wanting to catch her breath before starting up on another album, tour etc… Perhaps she wants to focus on her budding relationship with John Mayer? Perhaps.

Alicia Keys Performs ‘Girl on Fire’ + ‘New Day’ at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards

Before Alicia Keys even stepped out on stage, her persona was embodied in an anecdote told by ‘Criminal Minds’ star Shermar Moore. He first met her about 10 years ago and was trying to smooth talk the songstress, to which Keys replied, “I respect your flirt game, but my man situation is handled.” Strong, sassy and classy!

Keys kicked off her performance at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards with a more subdued version of her uptempo track, ‘Girl on Fire.’ Sporting a red ringleader’s jacket, Alicia took over piano duties with accompaniment by an acoustic guitarist and a couple of backup singers.

Later, the pace picked up and Keys was joined on stage by a slew of male dancers in suits (like we said… classy!) for ‘New Day.’ Keys abandoned her usual post behind the ivories and worked the stage with her dapper dancers. For someone who doesn’t typically venture far from her piano during her live performances, Alicia’s stunning vocals did not suffer one bit.

Our favorite part of the performance? Getting to see hubby Swizz Beatz with one of their kids jamming out to mom’s performance. Cute!

One Direction Are Stuck Together for Another Three Years

Here’s to hoping the boys of One Direction really don’t get sick of each other over the next few years! According to MTV UK, the blokes have reportedly signed another contract with Sony that stipulates the band must stay together for the next 36 months. Are they allowed breaks? That’s a lot of time to spend with anyone … even Harry Styles.

So what happens if they have a huge blowout fight and someone leaves the band? It will negatively impact how much money the remaining band members receive. A source said that guys of 1D have to stick together for three years and release an album each of those years. At the end of that period? They’ll be flush with ca$h.

In the past, both Zayn Malik and Liam Payne have expressed frustrations with their sudden and enormous fame. We hope One Direction have long and happy careers, especially as it impacts their payday for the foreseeable future!
