Bruno Mars Brings ‘Treasure’ + Reworked ‘Locked Out of Heaven’ to ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

Bruno Mars can play, sing and perform just about anything, and he never bores anyone. Why? Because even when he performs his own songs, he finds ways to mix it up. On his second night of performances for ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ on Friday (Jan. 11), Mars performed his inescapable, ubiquitous hit ‘Locked Out of Heaven’ — and surprised everyone with it.

Instead of the garage, Police-type feel we’re used to hearing on the track, Mars busted out reggae. As a result, the song had less of an urgent and more of an island feel. It sounded similar to his song ‘Show Me,’ another catchy tune from ‘Unorthodox Jukebox.’

Mars, rocking a conductor-style cap, brown leather jacket and aviator shades, also performed his retro-style jam ‘Treasure.’ He even broke away from his guitar and mic stand to dance! The dude is smooth.

On Thursday night (Jan. 10), Mars performed ‘When I Was Your Man,’ a ballad, so it was smart of him to mix it up and get moving for his Friday night jaunt.

Why Did Britney Spears + Jason Trawick Break Up?

Even though there have been rumors that Britney Spears and Jason Trawick were on the rocks for a while, it was still a bit of a shocker to hear that they split. The pair seemed to genuinely care about one another a whole lot, and it bummed all of us out when they broke up. Now, more details around the ended engagement have surfaced, and it’s starting to make a little bit more sense.

TMZ reports that the pair had disagreements over starting a family of their own. Trawick reportedly adored Spears’ two sons by ex husband Kevin Federline, Sean Preston and Jayden James, but didn’t want to have kids of his own with the singer and erstwhile ‘X Factor‘ judge. That was a sticking point for Spears, who was eager to expand her brood.

Another issue? Trawick felt like being with Spears and her “empire” took away his own identity. Further, Spears and her camp were apparently uncomfortable with Trawick — an agent — taking on more clients.

Radar Online reports that Trawick is no longer Spears’ co-conservator, and that problems were brewing for a long time. “Britney doesn’t think Jason is any fun and resents him because he acts more like a second father than a romantic partner or equal. Britney and Jason have been sleeping in separate bedrooms for a very long time.”

In the ramp-up to the Golden Globes, the Oscar nominations have come and gone, leaving a bread-crumb trail of obvious nods and an ocean of dissatisfied grumbles at some of the less-subtle snubs.

Bruno Mars Strikes Rat Pack Pose on Flaunt Cover

If you’ve got it, Flaunt it! That’s just what crooner Bruno Mars does in his Flaunt magazine cover. The ‘Locked Out of Heaven’ singer strikes a Rat Pack pose on the cover and in the accompanying images, which are black and white, and are styled as though they came from another era.

Dressed in a belted suit on the actual cover and wearing his signature hats and layers of jewelry in the inside images, Mars is a sharp-dressed man. No wonder he is getting profiles in multiple fashion magazines, like InStyle.

The most provocative photo is when the female model sticks her fingers in his mouth, like a gun. It’s certainly enough to get tongues wagging and chatter going on the Interwebs.

The spread is themed to show the slightly badass side of Mars as well. He’s putting up his dukes, throwing bills in the street, flashing his bling, setting fire to paper (of the monetary sort) and looking pensive. Mars has upped his game in terms of image with ‘Unorthodox Jukebox,’ positioning himself as a true leading man.

We’re loving the noir look of this shoot.

Jordin Sparks + Jason Derulo Snuggle Up in Glamour

Jason Derulo Jordin Sparks Glamour

Oh, to be a young, good-looking, talented and famous couple in love. While Jelena and Haylor are either breaking up every five minutes or crashing and burning before they really take off, respectively, it’s refreshing to see a long-term and stable relationship like that of Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo. The couple snuggle up in a date night-themed feature for the February 2013 issue of Glamour.

One only need to look at the photos once to see how in love they are, from how they look at one another to how tactile they are. We don’t often see them stumbling out of clubs at 3AM or fighting in front of the paparazzi flashbulbs. They are low-key but they are strong, and it shows in how they stare at each other, enraptured.

In the feature, Derulo says that Sparks is “transformed” by the ways in which she wears her hair and that he calls her different pet names depending on how she styles her hair. You’re either going “Awww!” right now or wanted to throw up because they are so cute they make you sick!

He says she is “Simone” when she rocks a prim and proper bun and “Chiquita” when she lets her mane go all wild and curly.

OMG, could that be any more disgustingly cute? We sorta love how how her thick, lush hair is such a major visual component of the images, in conjunction with her man’s quotes.

Sparks even mentioned the “m” word — marriage — saying they are in no rush, but they are not scared of it, either.

Sparks and Derulo are a rarity in Hollywood — a young couple that’s stable despite very public careers. It goes without saying that his neck injury last year certainly helped make them stronger and closer.

Rubin Singer Reveals Why Fashion Designers Love Beyonce

You know Beyonce always seems so classy and humble even though she’s one of the biggest stars ever on the planet? It’s because she is.

There’s a reason Queen Bey is the queen — she treats everyone around her with respect and is super gracious all of the time. Fashion designer Rubin Singer recently revealed that Beyonce is his absolute favorite celeb to work with.

Singer dressed Bey for her Las Vegas New Year’s Eve engagements, and he couldn’t have been more impressed with her. He told Glamour that Bey and her sister, Solange, are “the only celebrities that always dry clean and send clothes back in a box, with a hand-written thank you note. They are true ladies.”

“When you do a fitting with her, she doesn’t keep you waiting half a day like some celebrities do,” Singer added. “When she’s there, she’s present and honest and grateful.” Love. That. Bey.

Not only does Beyonce respect designers’ time, she also repays them for the time they spend working with her. “She and I have had a working relationship now for about five years,” Singer said. “In that time, I’ve been invited to every concert she’s had in New York, she’s introduced me to people she thinks I should work with, she and her team are just incredibly generous people.”

Sounds like she’s setting a mighty fine example for Blue Ivy!

Justin Bieber Tweets About Justin Timberlake’s New Music

On Thursday (Jan. 10), Justin Timberlake teased the world about his plans to release new music in the following days, and now Justin Bieber is chiming in on the conversation.

Following JT’s buzzworthy announcement, the 18-year-old singer replied-all in a tweet that revealed: “@jtimberlake @Timbaland i have heard some stuff. u got a good reason to be ready.#greatmusic.”


The world has been waiting years to hear new music from Timberlake, whose last album, ‘FutureSex/LoveSounds,’ was released in 2006. The singer posted a minute-long video yesterday, teasing that he’s set to come out of hiatus. “To whom it may concern…I think I’M READY! #JT2013,” he wrote.

Bieber has long been compared to the former ‘NSYNC star, and even paid homage to the thrilled 31-year-old by covering his hit song ‘Cry Me a River’ on his Believe tour. There are many reasons why the Canadian sensation admires JT, as he explained to MTV News last year.

“He was young, and he did it and he was really amazing and had such amazing music,” Bieber said when asked about Timberlake’s influence on his sound. “I can’t say I would be upset when someone compares me to him — I just feel like my music is going a completely different route. But definitely, hat goes off to him.”
