Was Justin Bieber Too Needy for Selena Gomez?

Another day, another detail in the Jelena split drama. The latest? Apparently Justin Bieber may have been too needy for Selena Gomez. Wait, what?!

The pair, whose most recent split went down on New Year’s Eve in Mexico, was reportedly initiated by Gomez. If you recall, she stormed off from their vacation early. In a private jet. Must be nice!

It wasn’t just Biebs’ “neediness” that bugged her. Apparently he also had a wandering eye, something that’s been reported more than once. A pal told Radar Online, “Justin is super needy and can be a big baby around Selena. It’s hard for him to make real friends because he likes the temporary attention of strangers, but didn’t realize how it hurt Selena. Selena didn’t feel Justin was respectful of their relationship,” the friend added. “She was constantly catching him in positions with other girls that would make her uncomfortable. She would get super jealous.”

Yikes! Sounds like this breakup may be the one that sticks … maybe. The friend insisted, “Selena absolutely won’t get back with Justin unless he makes some drastic changes in his life.”

Last week it was revealed that the pair tried just about everything they could to work it out, but it just wouldn’t. “Selena is Justin’s first love and he’s still young enough that he desperately tries to make it work,” a source said. “But Selena is mature enough to just know when to end it and be realistic that it isn’t working.”

That won’t stop us from crossing our fingers. We love these two!

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.

Did Harry Styles Dump Taylor Swift Because She Wouldn’t Put Out?

Oh lawd have mercy. Taylor Swift and One Direction‘s Harry Styles broke up a hot minute ago, and already the web is flooded with reasons and rumors as to why the couple of just a few months have called it quits.

Well the latest to come since the demise of Haylor is that 18-year-old playboy Styles had enough of Swift not wanting to get physical, so he ended the charade. Probably to get with a lucky little lady who wasn’t quite as uptight. Maybe uptight isn’t the appropriate word for this situation, as Swift sure comes off respectable if that’s the real reason for the breakup, but you catch our drift.

“Taylor is so concerned that the public will think she’s a wh–e because she dates around, that she doesn’t put out,” said a close friend of Swift’s to RadarOnline. “What she doesn’t get is that the guys keep dumping her because she’s being a prude.”

Another pal agreed, saying, “While it was clear she obviously had a thing for Harry, Taylor didn’t want to put out as often as he would’ve liked. Harry is a young boy, with ladies throwing themselves at him and has had a string of relationships with older women.”

The source continued, saying, “It’s no secret he’s sexually active and is enjoying his fame at the moment. But Taylor just wasn’t up for it as much as he is. They were sexually incompatible.”

But that’s not the only thing that turned off Styles! Apparently the pop-country singer’s interests and hobbies (such as antiquing) were just too boring for the U.K. sensation.

“Harry found Taylor a little sexually uninterested. Harry wants to go out to fancy bars and clubs and enjoy being young – but Taylor’s more of a homebody and all she would talk about was antiques,” said a source. “It drove him crazy, so he gave her the elbow!”

And so, Taylor is left single yet again. But on the upside, there’s sure to be a really great and catchy song to come of all this, right?

Taylor Swift Is Back in the Studio After Breaking Up With Harry Styles of One Direction

And so it begins!

Taylor Swift revealed that she’s back in the studio, fresh off her split with One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles.

Swift tweeted about it, the same way she tweeted cryptically post-breakup with Styles:

This is probably bad news for Styles, who is supposedly very sensitive and upset over the bust up. The couple’s whirlwind romance came to an end right around the time most of Swift’s relationships do: About the three month mark.

“They are both really busy and never in one place for long. Harry’s really upset about the split and is really sensitive about it,” pals said. “Loads of [Harry’s] friends told him to be careful and that it was never going to last, and he feels a little foolish now that it’s fallen apart so quickly.”

The pair broke up during a vacation in the British Virgin Isles — after which Styles consoled himself with Hermione Way, but ultimately nothing came of it. The couple reportedly had a huge fight, but no one knows over what … but we bet we will when the song comes out.

Harry Styles Cozies Up to Bravo Star Hermione Way After Taylor Swift Split

Some new information surrounding the shocking split between Harry Styles and Taylor Swift have emerged, and they aren’t going to make T. Swizzle feel any better. The One Direction hunk reportedly cozied up to Hermione Way, an entrepreneur who stars in Bravo’s ‘Start-Up: Silicon Valley.’

Yes, we immediately though of Harry Potter’s pal, too.

Here’s a recap: Haylor split on Jan. 4 after a major “row,” which is a U.K. term for a “big fight,” in Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands. She was seen sailing away to the airport looking miserable, gloomy, glum and alone, which is how most girls would feel when leaving Styles’ side, fight or not.

Meanwhile, Hazza stayed behind and headed to the private Necker Island, owned by billionaire Richard Branson. He was snapped in a hot tub with Way, who is 27 to his 18.

Hazza has been known to chase cougars, and at nearly 9 years his senior, that term would somewhat apply here. In other cases, she wouldn’t be a coug, but he’s a teenager, still!

Here’s what’s new, info-wise: A source told Business Insider that “Harry stayed on Necker through dinner and into the early morning hours, feasting and drinking with the island guests and Richard Branson. The party continued after dinner back in the pool, they had a wild night.”

The “wild” behavior reportedly included the cutie picking Way up and hopping into the pool with her cradled in his arms. However, it may have just been some harmless fun, as the BI source says that “nothing really happened between them” and that reports to the contrary are overblown.

Ya hear that, Tay Tay? Chin up, girl.

For her part, Way stoked the fires of gossip with her tweets by refusing to confirm or deny anything.

She also stated that nothing happened, so it was likely some innocent hanging out. Or her trying to throw ‘em off the scent, since something really did happen. For our money, the jury is still out on whether or not Hazza, who is reportedly really torn up over the split, moved on that quick.

Demi Lovato’s New Single Rumored to Be Called ‘Pieces of a Heart’

UPDATE: According to Disney Music Group, the single is not called ‘Pieces of a Heart.’ It is still unknown what her next single will be called, and when it will drop!

Does Demi Lovato have a new song on the way? According to a rumored tweet by MTV’s Sway Calloway, Lovato’s ‘Pieces of a Heart’ will debut on ‘MTV First’ on Feb. 13 at precisely 7:49PM ET.

The tweet was reportedly posted by Sway and then deleted, though it can be seen online in screenshot form. Maybe he wasn’t supposed to reveal the news just yet and his bosses asked him to remove the posting. If the alleged tweet was accurate, ‘Pieces of a Heart’ could be the lead single from Lovato’s fourth album, which is due sometime this year.

What might ‘Pieces of a Heart’ mean if it’s the actual song title? It could be a sad song about a heart shattered by breakup. Or maybe it’s a metaphor about love. We like the second explanation, especially since the track would be premiering on the eve of Valentine’s Day.

February would be a good time for Lovato to drop a new single, since ‘X Factor‘ is on hiatus. Her last album, 2011′s ‘Unbroken,’ proved to be a successful comeback effort with hit singles ‘Skyscraper’ and ‘Give Your Heart a Break.’

Just don’t wait on Lovato to confirm or deny the report about the new song on Twitter, because she’s taking a break from the social media site.

Harry Styles Reportedly ‘Really Upset’ + ‘Sensitive’ About Split With Taylor Swift

Kevin Kane / Stephen Lovekin, Getty Images

Aw, poor Hazza!

One Direction‘s Harry Styles is reportedly “really upset” and “sensitive” over this supposed split with girlfriend Taylor Swift. That might seem like a foregone conclusion, especially since some sources reported that the heartthrob was busy partying with billionaires, as opposed to crying a river, immediately following the epic fight that did Haylor in. But you know, Styles does have a “Can I cry” tattoo…

Somehow, we don’t think T. Swizzle is tap dancing with joy about this split, either. She’s probably commiserating with Selena Gomez, who seems to be in the same boat with Justin Bieber.

Life & Style reports that the 1Der is struggling to accept that things have ended as quickly as they began.

“They are both really busy and never in one place for long. Harry’s really upset about the split and is really sensitive about it,” a source told Life & Style (quotes via Hollywood Life.) “Loads of [Harry’s] friends told him to be careful and that it was never going to last, and he feels a little foolish now that it’s fallen apart so quickly.”

It’s true that Swift’s relationships usually number in the three month range before going south.

Sources say they were enjoying a romantic dinner in Virgin Gorda in the Virgin Islands on Jan. 3. By Jan. 4, T. Swizzle was on a boat, headed to the airport a la cart, no H. Styles to see her off or kiss her goodbye.

The Daily Mail reports they had “an almighty row” while on holiday.

Sigh. Those two kids seemed so happy and inseperable for two months. What will we do without ‘em?

Is Demi Lovato Back in Rehab?

Following her self-imposed Twitter hiatus, it’s suspected that Demi Lovato is back in rehab.

A new blind item from Blind Gossip that’s almost transparently directed at the ‘X Factor‘ judge suggests that the starlet took a Twitter hiatus because she’s in treatment. It says that the subject blamed “gossip sites” for her problems, and if you recall, that’s the subject of Lovato’s Twitter rant prior to her break from the site.

While blind items are often fake, some outlets use them to avoid lawsuits for publishing stories that could affect a star’s ability to get work. Lovato addressed this herself after a previous Twitter break which the same outlet said was a coverup for rehab. Just before Valentine’s Day in 2012, Lovato said she was taking a break from Twitter to go on a “cleansing retreat.” Lovato denied she was in rehab at the time.

It’s unclear why Blind Gossip seems to take pleasure in bullying Lovato, but it’s also unclear what she’s up to. She spent New Year’s Eve sipping coffee with friends and reflecting on her treatment, which is ongoing — so if nothing else, her head is surely in the right place. Whatever she’s up to, we hope she’s staying healthy — we’re Lovatics here at PopCrush — and we hope she’s ignoring the gossip!

Kanye West to Record Dr. Seuss Rap for His Unborn Kid

Kanye West may be taking the whole baby daddy thing just a little too far if we are to believe the tabloids. According to Hollywire (via The Sun), Yeezy is penning his own remake of Dr. Seuss’s classics ‘Green Eggs Ham’ and ‘The Cat in the Hat.’

Why you may ask? Because he’s Kanye West that’s why. In all seriousness, a source gave the tabloid a logical explanation of why the 35-year-old rapper felt it was necessary to tamper with Dr. Seuss’s legendary tales.

Kanye’s going to record child-friendly raps of Dr. Seuss, who he’s a big fan of…Kanye’s really in touch with his feelings. He wants [Kim Kardashian] to lay down some vocals while she’s carrying his child. He thinks it’ll be cool for his son or daughter to listen to the track when they’re older.”

Um, okay.

Meanwhile, it looks like Kimye is not planning to cash in on their baby anytime soon. According to TMZ, the mom and papa-to-be turned down a $3 million offer from an overseas tabloid to obtain their first baby pics. However, Kimye say they would consider offers in the future just not right now.

These reports comes after the couple agreed to keep their infant off of their reality series ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians.’ Still, Kimmy will show off her baby bump on the show because she thinks that being preggers is “great and cute.”

Taylor Swift + Harry Styles Break Up

Let the songwriting commence. It looks like she really did know he was trouble when he walked in…

…Word is that Taylor Swift and One Direction‘s Harry Styles are have broken up just a week after sharing a very public New Year’s Eve kiss in Times Square. Multiple sources are claiming that the duo is kaput after a blow up (or a row, as they say in the U.K.) while in the British Virgin Islands.

A Page Six source confirmed what we already knew: that the twosome flew to Virgin Gorda on Jan. 1. But a mere three days later, Swift bolted on an early-morning flight. She was pictured looking bummed out as she caught a boat to the airport on Jan. 4. Perhaps she was sad to be pulled away from her man? It’s telling that Styles didn’t accompany his “missus” to the airport. So something must be rotten in the state of Haylor.

She has remained mum on Twitter, only to post this self-referential message, which is a twist on the lyrics of her latest single ‘I Knew You Were Trouble.’

Styles wasn’t nursing any emotional wounds after T. Swizzle left, as he hit up moneybags Richard Branson’s private resort on Necker Island. He was photographed in a hot tub and hanging out with female fans. In his defense, though, Styles looks to be mingling with some older people, and mostly dudes, in the hot tub. But then again, Styles, 18, has shown a predilection for older women aka cougars. Heck, even Swift is five years older at 23.

A source told Business Inisder that “Richard Branson heard Harry was staying nearby so invited him to come check out Necker. So when Taylor left for the States, Harry went to Branson’s island for the day to let off some steam.”

Styles was only on Necker briefly and headed back to Gorda, but his stay was productive. “He did plenty of partying and was definitely enjoying himself while hanging out with guests. He returned to Virgin Gorda in the early morning hours looking like he had a raucous night,” the BI source said.

The 1Der is already back in the U.K.

If the couple is indeed over, then expect several songs where she mines this heartbreak on the follow up to ‘Red.’ It’s worth noting that maybe Styles and Swift had to part ways on their vacation due to business commitments. They are two of the most popular pop stars out there, you know? We’re just playing devil’s advocate and considering all sides of the story.

Or maybe T. Swizzle is penning songs while her face is buried in a pint of Ben & Jerry’s. Maybe Hazza is hanging out with other girls to help him numb the pain.

Maybe they’ll get back together. Or maybe they’ll never get back together, like, ever.

Justin Bieber Rumored to Host and Perform on ‘SNL’ February 16

Tim Boyles, Getty Images

Justin Bieber came up with a smart way to deflect chatter away from a spate of bad publicity last week, like those blunt smoking photos and the drama that surrounded the paparazzo who died tried trying to obtain a photo of him. He once again teased that he may host and perform on an upcoming episode of ‘Saturday Night Live.’ He’ll pull a Bruno Mars and do double duty. We know he’s up for the challenge.

He tweeted a cryptic message last week about a forthcoming ‘SNL’ engagement and now, he followed up by sharing, in teasing fashion, more details.

Yeah, “maybe!” Come on, Biebs and producer/creator Lorne Michaels. Confirm it and let us start looking forward to The Biebs serving as both the host and the musical guest.

It’s now rumored that The Biebs will commandeer the Feb. 16 ep of the long-running comedy show. It’s also rumored to be a Valentine’s Day-themed episode.

That leaves us with two HUGE questions.

Will his on-off lady love Selena Gomez be in town to make a cameo in one of the love-themed skits? And will The Biebs poke fun at those blunt smoking photos on the ep?

Celebs often appear on ‘SNL’ to make fun of themselves after an embarrassing moment. It seems like The Biebs could downplay the photos and the drama by having a laugh at himself.

He last appeared on the show as the musical guest in 2010. Tina Fey hosted. Now he’s putting on his big boy pants to host.

Beliebers, who is excited for The Biebs taking over an entire ep of ‘SNL?’
