Leonardo DiCaprio should maybe try to pace himself while he's in Miami. Though he's never been shy with the ladies before,DiCaprio is apparently looking to rack up some Wilt Chamberlain-style numbers while attending Art Basel. The reigning Hollywood bachelor of the post-Clooney world stopped by an Art Basel-related party over the weekend and "left with 20 girls," a very impressed source tells the New York Daily News. "Leo and 20 girls. He is my hero." This source is pretty entertaining, actually, explaining that DiCaprio was actually just picking up the slack for his underperforming fellow male attendees. "[Joe Jonas] looked scared, like he was going to drown and suffocate in the women," the source adds. "His face was hilarious."
Chris Brown and on-again, off-again girlfriend Karrueche Tran are apparently very, very off right now, at least if his proclamation of, "F--- that bitch!" during a recent concert appearance is any indication. He also decided to vent his frustrations with an Instagram post, though he quickly thought better of it and deleted it. Luckily MTV News saved it.
"We've got scars, some of them [you] gave me, some them I've caused," Brown posted. "I was locked up for damn near four months and only got one visit form you while [you] was hosting parties and taking secret trips to Toronto, going on dates with Drake." Oh, Chris. You know it's not a good idea to talk about giving your girlfriend scars when you're still on probation for assaulting a previous girlfriend, right? Well, maybe you don't. Anyway, Tran, for her part, is being quite open about the breakup, stating in an Instagram post of her own, "I refuse to be repeatedly mistreated, especially by someone who claims to love me. That's not love. And if that's what you define as love then I don't want it." Should we be worried about that "repeatedly mistreated" part?
Congratulations, Taylor! You've officially reached the fevered lesbian rumor stage of your career. Sources are breathlessly exclaiming that Swift and model Karlie Kloss are more than just friends, going so far as to suggest photos show the pair totally making out in the balcony of a concert for The 1975 last week. Or, you know, they could've just been trying to talk to each other during a loud rock concert. Anyway, for the sake of due diligence and journalistic integrity, here are Swift and Kloss at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show:
Hey, remember Taylor Lautner? He of the "Twilight" franchise and briefly "dating" best friend Taylor Swift? Well, maybe he thought you'd forgotten enough so that he could just relax and enjoy himself. But not so much. Lautner hit up a couple of gay bars in West Hollywood recently with friends but ended up drawing a fair amount of attention to himself. First, model Murray Swanby got himself a selfie with Lautner at famed gay bar The Abbey:
I'm not so much buying that #hotstraightguy hashtag, Murray, because Lautner and pals then scooted next door to another gay bar, Mother Lode, but the attention got to be too much for him. "Taylor only stayed at Mother Lode for a half-hour, but seemed to be having a blast. It is a fun gay bar with super-strong drinks, and he was in the back with two friends who looked to be very close by their interactions," a source tells Radar Online. "Taylor was definitely trying to be incognito, it looked like, but everyone there was staring at him. I think he left because people kept asking him for photos with him and he declined."
Maybe "Love Actually" peaked last year — it's 10th anniversary — as a beloved holiday favorite, because I've started to notice more than a little backlash against the mega-rom-com. Case in point: The Richard Curtis film finally gets an honest trailer from the good folks at Screen Junkies. And sure, they have a point about "Love Actually" being kind of responsible for "Valentine's Day" and "New Year's Eve" and the like. And the female characters do deliver a lot food. And the plot lines are kind of creepy and depressing. Still, it's Christmas!
