Prince Harry, single again

Prince Harry and model Florence Brudenell-Bruce have reportedly called it quits because Harry is preparing for the army, according to People magazine. “Harry has a lot on his mind at the moment. He is concentrating on his Apache helicopter training. After that, he’s expecting to return to Afghanistan,” a source says of the prince, who recently returned from a vacation with friends to Majorca. “Harry enjoyed spending time with friends over the summer, but he doesn’t want to be tied down in a relationship when training.”

An equal opportunity judge

Adam Levine
says the reason his singing competition show, “The Voice,” is better than “American Idol” is because of the way his show treats gay contestants. “What’s always pissed me off about ‘Idol’ is wanting to mask that, for that to go unspoken,” he tells Out magazine. “Come on. You can’t be publicly gay? At this point? On a singing competition? Give me a break. You can’t hide basic components of these people’s lives.” Levine is especially passionate about the topic because of his brother. “I can single-handedly dispel any ideas that sexuality is acquired,” Levine laughs. “Trust me, you’re born with it. My brother is gay, and we knew when he was 2. We all knew.”

Bieber rakes in the cash

Justin Bieber
is Hollywood’s richest teen, according to People magazine. He pulled in a reported $53 million last year. Most of his impressive income came from his 3-D movie, “Never Say Never,” and his perfume line, Someday, which reached $3 million in retail sales in just three weeks. Former No.1 Miley Cyrus dropped to the second spot, earning only $48 million last year.
