Thursday gossip roundup: Has Taylor Swift turned her eyes towards Tim Tebow?

Taylor Swift's next album will include a song called "Mile High" with lots of thinly-veiled references to football.

With the rumors that he’s dating Katy Perry dying down, Tim Tebow is now being linked to another popular singer. The football star was spotted chatting up Taylor Swift at a party in L.A. late last week, and the two had dinner together Monday night, according to Page Six. “After dinner, he walked her out,” a source says, adding that it was unclear if it was a date or not. “Then he walked back in to join two other people. I think they may both have been with their agents.”

Despite a steady stream of attractive girlfriends, George Clooney still gets hounded by gay rumors — not that he’s complaining. “I think it’s funny, but the last thing you’ll ever see me do is jump up and down, saying, ‘These are lies!’ That would be unfair and unkind to my good friends in the gay community,” Clooney tells the Advocate. “I’m not going to let anyone make it seem like being gay is a bad thing. My private life is private, and I’m very happy in it.” And as for the rumors and speculation, Clooney says he’s come to terms with them. “Who does it hurt if someone thinks I’m gay? I’ll be long dead and there will still be people who say I was gay. I don’t give a s—,” he says.

Whitney Houston’s death is expected to be ruled an accident, according to Hollyscoop, as sources say “nothing suspicious” has been found during the investigation into her Feb. 11 passing at the Beverly Hilton to suggest otherwise. “She had no marks on her body whatsoever to indicate a struggle, and she was the furthest thing from trying to kill herself,” a source says. The cause of Houston’s death is still listed as “deferred” on the official report, pending the results of a full toxicology report.

With all the attention paid to her personal life — and especially whether or not she’ll start a family — Jennifer Aniston would like everyone to know that she doesn’t give “a crap what other people think,” and says she’s happier “than I’ve ever been,” the actress reveals in an interview with CBS This Morning. “[Having a baby] doesn’t measure the level of my happiness or my success in my life, in my achievements, in any of that,” she says. “I feel great. I feel like I’m 30. I honestly didn’t start to feel my best until I was in my 30s. Physically, I started eating better and taking better care of my body, in terms of being physical and exercise. I think it’s important every year to celebrate your birthday and be excited about it. I’m 43 and it’s great.”

Beyonce turned heads recently during a lunch date in New York’s West Village when she was spotted breastfeeding her newborn daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, according to Us Weekly. Three different sources reported to the magazine that they saw the singer feeding Blue right at the table while having lunch at Sant Ambroeus over the weekend.

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have revealed the name of their newborn son. “We are happy to announce on Feb. 27, Jennifer gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Samuel Garner Affleck,” the proud dad announced on Facebook. Samuel joins older sisters Violet and Seraphina, who would’ve gone a different route with the name if it were up to them. “Our girls are working on names,” Garner said in an interview with Jay Leno while pregnant. “At first they were definitely Disney. It was like, Donald Duck, Minnie Mouse Affleck.”
