#FARTY PERRY: Katy Perry has been discussing her farting system. Specifically, how she likes to fart in front of mild-mannered Robert Pattinson.

Denying that she is getting the shift from the chisel-jawed star, Perry told Elle UK:

OK, so here’s the proof there was never anything going on with me and Robert Pattinson. I fart in front of him. Properly fart. And I never, ever fart in front of a man I am dating.

So there you go. (news.com.au)

#BRAINFREEZE: Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran did a competitive eating challenge. Well, Sheeran did it while Swift egged him on.

The just-friends-no-really couple went to a local ice cream joint in Connecticut, where Ed took on the ‘Big Kahuna’ challenge – “eight scoops of ice cream, seven toppings, brownie, banana and loads of whipped cream”.

The rest of the story is best told in these tweets from a delighted onlooker:

#DON’T STOP BELIEBING: Someone threw an iPhone at Justin Bieber on stage, so he put it down his pants and rubbed it around.

He also requested that people “refrain” from throwing things on stage, and then kept asking them if they knew what “refrain” meant, as if he were some kind of university professor rather than a teenager in nappy trousers.
