Chord Overstreet, Taylor Swift

The blonde Bieber and the young country diva? We love this pairing! Songbird Taylor Swift was spotted at an NHL game recently with Glee’s Chord Overstreet, and together they’re almost too much blonde cuteness to reasonably handle. Just look at the sparks flying between them in the picture!

Okay, so maybe it's a little early to start calling them an official couple. . .but, wouldn't they make a great one? Hard not to imagine a bunch of towheaded, singing babies all around them, isn't it?

long piece

Who says gamers don’t need love? A Philadelphia Craigslist ad has surfaced likening the squishy feeling of romantic entanglement with the cold hard random shapes of Tetris. “The long piece” - the piece that Tetris fans long for in all of their games is what this Craigslist seeking gamer longs for in his love life.

“You know how in Tetris you keep getting all these pieces you don’t want and you keep piling them up on right side of the screen, wondering how many squares you can get in a row when suddenly the long piece comes out of nowhere and for a moment makes everything disappear? Sometimes I feel as if my dating life is like that. I am waiting for my long piece.”

If that isn’t poetic than I don’t know what is! C’mon, there has to be some gamer girl out there for this guy. You don’t even have to be a gamer to appreciate this level of wittiness. Someone just give this guy a long piece… ahem, you know what I mean.

New Moon Director Wants to Make You Cry

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in New MoonDirector of The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Chris Weitz, wants to make fans of the series cry their tear ducts out.

“We’ve tried our best to deliver on the romantic scenes in the film, and I would like to be able to produce more tears than any movie before, if possible. If we could only weigh them with some kind of cubic tear measure!”

Weitz also spoke out about the lack of privacy there is with shooting the film, thanks to Twitter:

“To be honest, even making the movie is under a tremendous amount of scrutiny now, so that when the cast went back to Vancouver there were cameras everywhere. Everyone knows where every set is going to be. It goes with the Internet and all the information is out there all the time, and whenever one of them is spotted it’s immediately Twittered.”

Make sure you bring your tissue box when the film hits theaters November 20th.

Jennifer Aniston Wants Men in Tighty-Whities

Jennifer Aniston wants her guys in tighty-whitiesFellows, listen up: Jennifer Aniston likes men to wear “tighty-whities.”

The 40-year-old actress, who is divorced from Brad Pitt and is rumored to be dating Gerard Butler, hates it when guys don baggy underwear, preferring to see them in skintight briefs.

“I like tighty-whities on a man. Not boxers. I don’t like boxers. Boxer briefs.”

Jennifer is just as adamant about the clothing she likes to see on women, and is even considering bringing out a fashion range to make her chosen style more readily available: “I’d love to do a bathing suit line. I always have a hard time finding a good bathing suit and so I usually end up tailoring bathing suits. You should be able to mix and match your bottoms. For men, I like surf shorts. I think that’s beautiful.”

Jennifer can soon be seen on the big screen in Love Happens, about a widower who writes a book about coping with grief which becomes a bestseller, in which she has a terrible date with co-star Aaron Eckhart.

Hilary Swank and boyfriend John CampisiP.S. I Love You actress Hilary Swank wasn’t attracted to her boyfriend when she first met him.

The Oscar-winning actress, who is dating her former agent, John Campisi, admits that there was no initial “spark” between them because they were both dealing with heartache. Hilary—who was in the process of divorcing Chad Lowe when she started working with John in May 2006—explained to Hello!, “There was no spark. What’s interesting is, there was never anything. It wasn’t until we were well into the dissipation of our respective relationships. Going through something so difficult at the same time, we became very good friends. We became closer and closer. It was so unexpected. We both recognized that if we were going to take the relationship to the next step, we could no longer work together.”

Although the 35-year-old star says she has no plans to marry John, 41, in the near future, she hopes to start a family with him one day and enjoys spending time with his son Sam, from a previous relationship.

“Sam’s a sweetheart. I most definitely want children. It’s something I’d like to do someday. And when the timing is right I’ll hopefully know it.”

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
