Are Ariana Grande & Big Sean dating?
Pop star Ariana Grande has sparked rumours of a new romance with frequent collaborator Big Sean following her split from singer Jai Brooks.
The Way hitmaker, 21, became friends with the rapper last year after working together on her single Right There, while they recently teamed up again on her new summer smash Problem and her next release, Best Mistake.
Reports suggest they have since grown so close, they have started dating. Grande and Big Sean were photographed leaving a Los Angeles movie theatre together earlier this month after catching a screening of action thriller The Purge: Anarchy, and eyewitnesses told Eonline.com the stars shared a kiss during the film.
Grande reportedly ended her on/off relationship with Brooks in late July, not long after reconciling.
Big Sean, 26, has been single since calling off his engagement to Glee actress Naya Rivera in April.
Rivera has since rebounded with actor Ryan Dorsey, with the pair tying the knot in Mexico in July.
Hepburn’s granddaughter on mag cover
The granddaughter of Hollywood legend Audrey Hepburn has made her modelling debut on the cover of high fashion magazine Harper’s Bazaar.
Emma Ferrer, 20, was hand-picked to appear as the cover girl for the style publication’s September edition, in which she imitates a number of her famous grandmother’s iconic poses.
She also channels Hepburn’s Beatnik look from her 1957 cult classic Funny Face for one shot, donning a black turtleneck with matching pants and loafers.In the accompanying interview, Ferrer, an art student in Florence, Italy, says the first images she has of Hepburn are from when the actress was quite young.
‘‘I remember seeing a photo of her jumping on a trampoline - I believe this was before I understood that she was famous. But I remember thinking that she looked like a friend I wish I could have had.’’
However, Ferrer admits she is not planning to make a full-time career out of her modelling.
‘‘I have lots of plans for myself. I don’t see myself entirely devoted to a life as a model. I think it would be an amazing accompaniment to what it is I want to do,’’ she told WWD.com.
The images for Harper’s Bazaar were all shot by Michael Avedon, whose grandfather, celebrated fashion photographer Richard Avedon, famously shot Hepburn in her heyday.
Ferrer’s father is Sean Ferrer, Hepburn’s only son with her first husband, actor/director Mel Ferrer.
Hepburn died from cancer in 1993.

He wasn’t the only fan to voice his anger on the social media site.According to FritzTheWitch, ‘‘The fact that Rise of the Tomb Raider is a Xbox exclusive is just a big slap in the face to all die hard Tomb Raider fans, tbh.’’
Meanwhile jameslocker tweeted: ‘‘really pissed I’ll be missing out on the chance to play Rise of the Tomb Raider next year, a bad decision for fans of the original & reboot.’’
Another posted a link to Michael Jackson’s video clip They Don’t Care About Us.It is not clear whether its a timed exclusive for Xbox though, so the possibility of an eventual PC/PS4 release hasn’t been ruled out completely just yet.
