Are you wondering which One Direction cutie is Meghan Trainor crushing on? Many assumed it would be Harry Styles since she's collaborating with him for a song. But in a Capital FM interview, the "All About That Bass" hitmaker revealed it's Niall Horan. "One Direction, give me the blonde one! He's a gentleman," she said. "All the other boys walked by and he came up to me, I got swept off my feet [by his Irish charm]!" Props to her for being able to choose. We can't even choose two for ourselves. Heehee.
Miss Universe crowned its 2014 queen earlier today and during the evening gown competition, Nick Jonas performed some of his hit songs for the lovely candidates. But of course he just has to walk to his girlfriend and Miss Universe 2012 title holder, Olivia Culpo, while singing "Jealous" which he admitted before was for his girlfriend. Our country's rep meanwhile to the beauty contest, MJ Lastimosa, didn't manage to get through the top five finalists but we're proud of her and are happy for those who won. Miss Colombia Paulina Vega took home the crown, beating Miss USA, Miss Netherlands, Miss Jamaica, and Miss Ukraine.
The Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAGs) also revealed their choices for the best performances in movies and on television earlier today. Eddie Redmayne won Outstanding Performance by a Male in a Leading Role for Theory of Everything. J.K. Simmons took home Outstanding Performance by a Male in a Supporting Role for Whiplash. And Game of Thrones was recognized for Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Comedy or Drama Series. View the complete list of nominess and winners right here, and make sure you watch Eddie's touching acceptance speech after he received his statuette.
Abigail Breslin has pointed out before that her song, "You Suck," isn't about 5 Seconds of Summer's Michael Clifford. But many still believe it is, so you could just imagine all the hate she's been receiving. Turns out, though, that even Mikey isn't a fan of the track, too. Over the weekend, Abi addressed the the mean things thrown her way and called "You Suck" a "joke song." That's when Mikey replied and said, "I didn't find your joke song funny." Abi didn't seem to notice his reply, though, and even continued her lengthy tweets about the topic.
