The Dredge: Niall Horan has brought shame on Ireland
Here’s how. All the very best of the day’s celebrity dirt.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt – from the top to the very bottom.

#NIALLER: Niall Horan of One Direction has brought shame upon Ireland.

Now, we wouldn’t normally say this. As a rule, we believe that Niall is a wonderful ambassador for Irish culture who we are delighted to see carrying the tricolour to his youthful female fans.

But sometimes a line must be drawn in the sand.

Last night, Niall told his gazillion Twitter followers:

This is too far, Niall. Too far.

#RIRI ANGRY: You don’t mess with Rihanna. Because if you do, she will clock you in the skull with a microphone.

The singer was performing at Birmingham’s NEC Arena on Monday night, when an over-eager concertgoer held on to her hand a little too long.

In other news, Rihanna overtook Justin Bieber to become YouTube’s most viewed artist. Well for her. (Complex)

#SUPERMAN: As well as having abs of brushed titanium, new Superman Henry Cavill is a delightful man.

How do we know? Well, one Gianna Mucci has posted an account of how he used to walk her dog Nuddy when he was working as a waiter.

Henry just wanted to do this as a favour, but I insisted on paying him. After all, he was a struggling actor, right?

The next time I called Henry to see if he could walk Buddy, I didn’t hear back, which seemed a little strange. A couple weeks later, I got a voicemail from him apologising for not being able to help and explaining he had been overseas auditioning for Bond.

She met up with him years later at a press conference, after he had become a star:

Despite all that had changed in his life, he was still the same Henry — as humble and thoughtful as ever [...] Before Henry left to do more press, he looked down, and said quietly, “I miss Buddy.”

AW. (Yahoo)

#BIG VAL: We already know that Val Kilmer’s Twitter account is composed largely of gut-bustingly awesome Val Kilmer selfies.

But it’s nice to know he hasn’t forgotten his roots.

You can be our wingman anytime, Val.
