Rumors have been circulating all week that Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber are becoming more than just friends after they were spotted dancing and looking a “little flirtatious with one another” at a Los Angeles club last weekend, but Cyrus is eager to put such talk to rest. “I’m engaged. I’m engaged. That is impossible,” Cyrus tells radio station Hot 99.5, calling in herself to clear the air. Her fiancé, Liam Hemsworth, was notably absent during her night out with Bieber.

Halle Berry is having a boy, and she’s having him in the States. At least that’s what her fiancé, Olivier Martinez, let slip to People magazine. “My son will be an American, but I remain French,” Martinez said during the Champs-Elysées Film Festival in Paris this week. “I remain a Frenchman in America, but I adapt to American culture. I feel good there — but I’m still a foreigner.”

It looks like Cressida Bonas can relax: There’s reportedly nothing to reports that her rumored boyfriend, Prince Harry, is “getting close” to model Cara Delevingne, according to E! News. “Everyone is on the wrong track with who she’s dating. He’s not her type,” a source says of Delevingne. “Cara is not dating anyone right now.” The 20-year-old model has also been linked to Harry Styles, Leonardo DiCaprio and Justin Bieber.

Russell Brand isn’t shy when it comes to discussing his sexual appetites, divulging during a Huffington Post Live chat that he’s prone to multiple orgasms. “Once in Dublin, [I had] nine. And it wasn’t even in a day, it was an evening,” Brand boasts. “It was crazy there. What a mental night it was. I felt exhausted the next day.” Brand attributes his virility to his sobriety: “After I came off drugs, I had a lot of energy that needed to go somewhere, and I thought … that way.”

One Direction’s Harry Styles is giving Justin Bieber a run for his money when it comes to accumulating body art. It’s tough to say which 19-year-old pop star has more body art at this point, but Styles is at least being a bit bolder with his references: The Brit showed off a pair of George Michael-inspired ankle tattoos while out in Miami this week, according to the Daily Mail. Just above each foot, Styles has the words “Never gonna dance again” inscribed, referencing a lyric from the 1984 Wham! hit “Careless Whisper.” Your move, Bieber.
