Tuesday gossip roundup: Prince Harry talks about his nude scandal
Prince Harry is finally speaking out about his nude photo scandal
from his trip to Las Vegas last summer, acknowledging it wasn’t his
proudest moment. “I probably let myself down. I let my family down, I
let other people down,” Harry told reporters as he wrapped up his latest
four-month stint in Afghanistan. But he doesn’t think he was the only
one acting inappropriately. “At the end of the day, I was in a private
area and there should be a certain amount of privacy,” he said. “The way
I was treated by [the media] I don’t think is acceptable.”
James Franco was right about Justin Bieber not being too happy with his lip-syncing home movie of Bieber’s “Boyfriend,” but it’s not Franco’s Bieber impression that has the Canadian pop star miffed. The video features Franco frolicking with his “Spring Breakers” co-star Ashley Benson, who was reportedly dating Bieber pal Ryan Good at the time it was shot. “Justin was really angry about the video because Ryan was supposed to be Ashley’s boyfriend at the time and she’s seen crawling all over James,” a source tells Radar Online. “To Ryan and Justin, this was proof of infidelity. And they found it really immature that James and Ashley were rubbing it in their faces.”
Taylor Swift hurried off to London this week on her private jet, prompting speculation that she’s looking to smooth things over with recent ex-boyfriend Harry Styles, according to E! News. “Once she disembarked, she was met by a bodyguard and a driver who took her straight into a central London,” a source says. “She is staying at a London hotel. She seemed excited to be here. She was heard saying how pretty London looked [in the snow].” Coincidentally, One Direction’s Styles is also reportedly in the U.K. at the moment and has a few days off, sources say. But Swift’s rep insists the visit is all business and has nothing to do with Styles. Swift is in town to shoot some magazine covers and perform at two awards shows, the rep says.
Selena Gomez seems to be definitely moving on after her split from Justin Bieber. After playing a recent benefit concert where she covered breakup songs by Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake, Gomez was recently spotted running off with a “scruffy young guy,” according to the New York Post. Gomez and the dark-haired mystery man shared a private car away from the venue, heading out to a night of partying around New York City.
Lance Armstrong‘s ex-fiancée, Sheryl Crow, is speaking out on the disgraced cyclist’s coming clean about his years of doping, admitting it would have been tough for Armstrong to keep it a secret much longer. “I think that honesty is always the best bet and that the truth will set you free,” she tells “Entertainment Tonight,” admitting that she’d only seen “bits and pieces” of Armstrong’s two-part interview with Oprah Winfrey. “To carry around a weight like that would be devastating in the long run.”
