Tom Brady is on the cover of the new issue of Men’s Health in a grey t-shirt under a leather jacket and short tousled hair. Looks GREAT. Like really, really, REALLY hot.

Here’s what I like about the new Justin Timberlake video for Take Back The Night: -it’s not 8 minutes long -his rolled up pants (but not as much I like them on Zachary Quinto) -that dope little kid with the badass moves -great aerial footage from his concert Here’s what made me laugh during the new Justin Timberlake video for Take Back The Night -his black bib or bulletproof vest, however you want to see it -how he’s fronting like he hasn’t just ripped off MJ -how he drives away from the real people in the real neighbourhood in his toy vintage car to go back to his gated community -for the first time, he doesn’t look like a teenager anymore. Full Story

First… Katy Perry covers the new issue of ELLE UK. Typically candid, Katy talks about the speculation that she was hooking up with Robert Pattinson and reveals that she reached out to Kristen Stewart around that time to assure her that she wasn’t violating Girl Code: “I sent (Stewart) a text message saying: ‘I know you’ve seen all this stuff but you know I would never disrespect you. Full Story

Amber Heard covers FLARE but won’t talk about Johnny Depp

The cover is soft and pink – reminds me of Diane Kruger’s FLARE cover a few months ago (click here for a refresher – but the subject seems intent on being as UN-girly as possible. As Amber Heard tells the magazine, she’s more into muscle cars than heels. Full Story
