Gomez disgusted by Bieber
Selena Gomez is reportedly disgusted with ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber’s latest antics after a photo showed him licking a stripper’s breast.
An x-rated picture started circulating online over the weekend of Justin and his friend Khalil getting close and personal with an exotic dancer.It isn’t the first time the 19-year-old has been associated with strip clubs and strippers but this latest image has prompted comment from his ex-girlfriend.
‘‘She knows about it and has briefly seen it to see if it was true and she hates every minute of it and thinks it is beyond disgusting!’’ a source close to the 21-year-old revealed to Hollywood Life.
‘‘The range of emotions in her head and what her friends and family are telling her and her true feelings about Justin has her very flustered.’’
Selena and Justin dated for two years until January 2013.
But it seems that while Selena is upset by Justin’s behaviour, it’s a permanent reminder that he is no longer the boy she used to love.
‘‘She’s sad, mad and actually a little happy to see that she is away from this version of Justin - a Justin she is not familiar with at all,’’ the source added.
Red Hot Chili Peppers to 'hibernate’
Red Hot Chili Peppers played what they called ‘‘one last blowout’’ before taking an extended hiatus on Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Even though the next night they appeared with Bruno Mars at the Super Bowl and will play the Isle of Wight festival in June, it looks like the live appearances will be otherwise limited for the near future.
Flea told the audience: ‘‘We’re just about to go into a period of hibernation and make a new record.’’
Kris tells Khloe to move on
Khloe Kardashian’s mum Kris Jenner is reportedly telling her daughter to move on from her divorce and ‘‘never look back’’.
Khloe, 29, has been going through a split from her husband Lamar Odom and just sold the house in Tarzana, California they used to live in.
According to Kris, 58, now the home they shared is gone it is time to look forward and create a new life for herself.
‘‘Kris told her once everything is out of that house that she no longer wants, it’s time for her to really be done with that place. Kris told her to ’walk through that front door, slam it and never look back,’’’ a source told Hollywood Life.
Khloe has apparently done everything she can to avoid going back into the home, taking out the objects that carry the most personal value to her and leaving the rest for movers.

Despite this, she knows as the person selling the home, she has some final duties to attend to.
‘‘She’s already taken her most prized possessions and personal belongings from that home,’’ the source continued.
‘‘She would rather have the movers go in there and pack up everything so she won’t have to step foot in there. But she knows she’s got to do one final walk through.’’
Kris has previously spoken out in support of her daughter.
The Kardashian matriarch says the whole family is backing Khloe in this difficult time.
Samantha Jade bitten by acting bug
X Factor winner Samantha Jade says she almost passed on the opportunity to audition for a role as Kylie Minogue because she didn’t want to wreck her music career.
The Firestarter singer will star as the Australian pop icon opposite Luke Arnold as INXS frontman Michael Hutchence in Channel Seven’s highly anticipated biopic, Never Tear Us Apart, premiering on Sunday.
Jade says she ‘‘definitely’’ had concerns about turning to acting after finally finding musical success on X Factor.
‘‘Everything was going so well for me with X Factor and, to be honest, I didn’t want anything to go bad,’’ she told AAP.
‘‘I thought, ‘I finally got a good shot’. I didn’t want to wreck it.’’
But after pushing through a nerve-wracking audition, she scored the role and threw herself into it, researching the singer and even Youtubing old episodes of Neighbours to capture Minogue’s mannerisms.
Although she’s drawn comparisons to the Spinning Around singer her ‘‘whole life’’, Jade says she didn’t really see the resemblance until she donned the blonde wig and shoulder pads.
‘‘It was so weird, because I never saw it,’’ she says.‘‘But when I put the wig on and the outfit on, I was like, ‘Oh I get it now.’’’
And with Minogue back on home soil for The Voice, she’s even faintly hopeful a catch-up could be on the cards.
The closest she’s got to her idol (and doppelganger) so far is a much-cherished tweet.
‘‘She did tweet me. I couldn’t believe it, I thought it was a fan page.’’
