The Wanted’s Max George and Michelle Keegan Call It Quits
Listen up, ladies, one of the hunky members from the British boy band The Wanted is “Chasing the Sun” solo.
Max George and his girlfriend of two years, British soap star Michelle Keegan, have split up, according to MTV UK.
Apparently, the breakup happened a while ago, but the duo tried to keep it under wraps.
“[Max] and Michelle are no longer together. They have been separated for a number of weeks, but hoped to keep this a private matter,” George’s rep said in a statement. Keegan’s rep added, “I can confirm that the relationship has recently ended.”
George and Keegan began dating in December 2010 and the singer popped the question in April of the following year, but the couple broke off their engagement last April due to their conflicting schedules.
Mariah Carey Confirmed as American Idol Judge!
Jennifer Lopez is definitely out. Steven Tyler is definitely out.
And Mariah Carey is…so in!
Fox President Kevin Reilly just announced to reporters at the TV Critics Association press tour that Mariah closed a deal (“only hours ago”) to become a judge on the next season of American Idol.
Mariah herself spoke to reporters via speakerphone, saying: “I am so excited to be joining Idol. I wish I could have been there myself to tell you. It all kind of just happened real quickly. I can’t wait to get started in a couple months…I will see you in January!”
Reilly did not underplay Mariah’s casting, telling reporters: “It’s the biggest recording artist than any of these shows have ever had. It’s an artist many of these contestants have tried to emulate. [The deal] only concluded only hours ago. Not being the only game in town, we need to keep things fresh.”
Reilly declined to comment on whether long-time staple Randy Jackson would return, but pointed out, “Randy has been working with Mariah for a long, long time and is in fact her co-manager. Randy was very instrumental in this deal.”
As for Jennifer’s status, Reilly put all the rumors to rest by saying there is no chance of her returning for the following season. “I think I can say that’s 100 percent that Jennifer won’t be coming back to the show.” Reilly called it a “mutual agreement” with Steven and Jennifer.
Excited for Mariah’s casting? Who else are you hoping to see at the judges’ table this January?
Lady Gaga Wears Muumuu, Looks Shockingly Normal on Date With Boyfriend
Leave it to Lady Gaga to cook up the world’s only Salvation Army muumuu.
Didn’t think those two elements could ever be combined in a lab, did you? Shame be upon you for underestimating the evil genius of the Gaga. If that woman wanted to make a negligee out of old Jeep parts and a puffer fish, she could do it. Blind. We should shut up now before we start giving her ideas.
Anyway, about that marching band muumuu…
Gaga wore it out on a date, maybe because all of her pointy white dresses were at the cleaners.
She wore it with ripped fishnets and Ray-Ban sunglasses and her boyfriend, Taylor Kinney. If Gaga appears a bit underdressed—where’s her radar dish hat? Her hand-held space debris? Her wearable protein?—there’s a reason: this was a casual date night at Joanne Trattoria, a New York restaurant owned by the 26-year-old singer’s father.
We tend to wear our pajamas when our daddy cooks us a meal, but to each his own.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis Kiss, Cuddle at Jobs Wrap Party
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis certainly look like real-life friends with benefits—or maybe something more!
The former That ’70s Show costars shared a smooch at the wrap party for Jobs (the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic starring Kutcher) on Saturday in Hollywood. Per X17 Online, the duo packed on the PDA on an outdoor terrace, possibly believing their romance was hidden by the shrubbery surrounding them.
Kunis, 28, and Kutcher, 34, have been rumored to be dating since April, after they were spotted out and about together in Tinseltown. Kunis, who broke up with Macaulay Culkin in 2010, was quick to squash these rumors, telling Extra, “It’s absurd! A friend is a friend.”
She reiterated the “just friends” sentiment in an interview with British Elle’s August Issue. “I am totally single,” she said. “Listen, [Ashton and I] hang out. We’ve known each other for 15 years. We have mutual friends. We’re comfortable with one another. That’s it! There’s no crazy love story, nothing more.”
Yeah, OK. But actions speak louder than words!
