Joe Jonas and Camilla Belle Vacation Together

Joe Jonas and Camilla Belle vacationing in Mexico

Although most people didn’t know that Joe Jonas and Camilla Belle had been dating until late last week, it turns out the two had already been spending quality time together. According to Us Weekly, this picture of the actress with the brothers was taken in Mexico back on November 9. This means Joe and Camilla were vacationing together just weeks after the breakup with Taylor Swift. (I guess life moves a lot more quickly when you’re a celebrity.)

Interestingly enough, it looks as if Jonas may have been seeking out Camilla months before they ever met. After the jump, you can see the 19-year-old reference Belle in a video made back in March.

Jonas and Swift: Superstars Turned Super Childish

Camilla BellaJoe JonasTaylor Swift

Hey, they actually are kids. At times I’ve wondered if some Disney celebs aren’t actually Stepford Stars - they look like teens, but they’re really bionic, singing, money-making robots. In some ways, it’s satisfying when they slip up. This at least proves that, while they may be beautiful and rich and talented, at least they’re still human. At the same time, the back-and-forth press games between and Taylor Swift are starting to get a little - okay, a lot - tedious.

Swift seemed to take the high road regarding the Jonas bro split, saying “He’s not in my life anymore, and I have absolutely nothing to say about or to him” to the New York Times. That was on the ninth (Sunday), and that was the right thing to say.

But then news broke that Joe Jonas, one-third of the pop sensation The Jonas Brothers, was seeing music video hottie

Joe Jonas Responds: “I Never Cheated”

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Movies, Music, Break-ups,

Joe Jonas and Taylor Swift

With the news of his relationship with Camilla Belle now out, Joe Jonas has been forced to go on the defense.

In a recent post on the Jonas Brothers’ MySpace page, the 19-year-old tries to address many of the questions currently being posed. While he doesn’t deny leaving Taylor Swift for another girl (he actually doesn’t even mention the country singer by name), he does deny ever cheating on her. Jonas also claims the infamous “27-second” phone call wasn’t his fault. (Apparently he thought Swift would had something more to say after hearing “I’m interested in someone else.”)

You can read Joe’s version of the story in its entirety after the jump.

Taylor Swift Loses Joe Jonas to Camilla Belle

Camilla Belle and Joe Jonas

UPDATE: You can read Joe Jonas’ side of the story here.

NOTE TO THE LADIES: If a man spends less than 30 seconds breaking up with you, it’s probably because he already has someone waiting in the wings.

Back in early October, Joe Jonas put an end to his high-profile relationship with Taylor Swift. Despite several public outings, the 19-year-old eventually gave the country star the boot over the phone. Now it appears he might have had his eyes set on someone a little less blonde.

Joe Jonas Breaks Up with Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift and Joe Jonas

What never officially existed is now apparently over. Attention tweens of the world— is now back on the market.

According to Us Weekly, the Jonas Brothers performer and his country singer girlfriend are now over. Sources claim the 19-year-old broke up with last Friday over the phone.

Back in August, the couple were seen double-dating with Nick Jonas and his girlfriend, Selena Gomez. The two (as pictured above) even sat next to each other - in public - at the 2008 Video Music Awards.

While I’m sure Swift could easily find another man soon, Joe supposedly broke the 18-year-old’s heart. Sounds like good material for a new album!

Miley Cyrus Moving On with Male Model

Miley Cyrus and Justin Gaston

UPDATE: You can see new video of Miley out with Justin on Monday night after the jump.

Who needs a teenage boy bander when you can have a 20-year-old male model?

To be fair, it’s not known whether has a new boyfriend or not. But the teen star is undoubtedly aware of what the press is going to believe…and I have a feeling that’s exactly what she wants.

This past Sunday, Miley was seen spending time with Justin Gaston a model and wannabe country singer. Gaston, who met Miley and her father when he was a contestant on Nashville Star, first attended church with the Cyrus family before accompanying the 15-year-old to Disney’s Concert for Hope. And surprise, surprise - the Jonas Brothers were at that event too!

VMA Fashion: Who Hit a Sour Note?

MTV Award

Award season is long, fraught with gossip, and seemingly unending. Someone always walks away with a statue - some performers and artists walk away with several. But by the time the same awards are given out the next year, no one really cares who won what the year before.

What we do remember is what they were wearing when they were doing it. People may not remember which Grammy Jennifer Lopez won the year she wore the green Versace gown, but they remember the gown. This year’s may be remembered for several years - the pictures not of moon men statues, but of the clothes everyone wore.

Whose couture sang the sweetest…and whose fashion was completely discordant?

Joe Jonas and Taylor Swift Spotted Out Together

Joe JonasTaylor Swift

As the Jonas Brothers fully know, pictures do speak a thousand words. And last night, the brothers gave photographers plenty to say.

Over the past month, Nick has done his best to dodge questions referring to Selena Gomez, the star of Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place. Meanwhile, older brother Joe has had his name associated with rising country star Taylor Swift. (She appears in the boy band’s upcoming concert movie.)
