Has Ashton Kutcher popped the question to his gorgeous girlfriend Mila Kunis? Yesterday, Kunis was spotted out shopping wearing a diamond ring on her left ring finger, and E! is claiming that they've confirmed the couple is engaged. The former That '70s Show co-stars have been dating for two years. They've been coy about their relationship in the past, but yesterday Kunis posted an Instagram photo of herself smiling with Kutcher, along with the caption, "I love you @kutcher78." Hmmm... was that happy photo meant to be a celebration of their engagement?
Remember when, last year, NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon teamed up with Pepsi Max to make an epic prank video, taking an unsuspecting car salesman on the test drive from hell? Well, a number of people thought the video was faked, including Jalopnik's Travis Okulski. So Pepsi and Gordon decided to prank Okulski to prove the first video was real. This time, Gordon dressed up as an ex-con taxi driver who ended up getting chased by police. Said Okulski of riding in Gordon's cab, "I thought I was going to die." However, he still thinks the original video was faked.
In honor of this weekend's Academy Awards, Billboard's put together a list of the top 50 songs from movies that have hit the Hot 100. The rankings are based on Hot 100 chart performance. Here are the top 10:
Liam Neeson's latest action thriller is Non-Stop, about a U.S. Air Marshal trying to save a passenger plane from a terrorist threat. John Cusack stars in The Bag Man as a henchman hired to protect a package at a remote motel. In the drama Bottled Up, Melissa Leo plays a woman whose daughter becomes addicted to prescription pills. The animated children's film Ernest & Célestine features the voices of Forest Whitaker and Mackenzie Foy as a bear and a mouse who form an unlikely friendship.
Maks is back! Hunky dance pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy is set to return to Dancing With the Stars for its 18th season, sources say. Maks had left the show after its 15th season, although he did make one guest appearance apiece during the 16th and 17th seasons. Coincidentally, one of Maks' former dance partners, Erin Andrews, is joining DWTS as a co-host this season. Neither Maks' reps nor ABC have commented on the casting news yet. The upcoming season's full cast, including which dance pros will be returning, will be announced on Good Morning America on March 4.

A moving truck was spotted outside Katy Perry's house on Wednesday shortly after news broke that she and boyfriend John Mayer had broken up again. According to Us Weekly, the pop star, 29, and notorious womanizer, 36, had been fighting. "Of course this happens all the time, I can't keep track anymore," a source says. "But for now they are done." The on-again-off-again couple first went public in the summer of 2012, and were rumored to be headed toward marriage after a brief split last March. But curiously, Mayer hasn't tweeted since Monday and he was noticeably absent from Perry's side during her recent trips to London and Milan.
During an appearance on The Tonight Show last night, Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore performed a cute song together called "Every 10 Years." Backed by host Jimmy Fallon on guitar, Barrymore and Sandler, who have starred in the romantic comedies The Wedding Singer, First 50 Dates and can be seen in the upcoming movie Blended, sang of their love for one other. "You're the Rob Ford to my crack cocaine," crooned Sandler. (Swoon.) He also vowed, "I will still love you when your boobs touch the floor," to which the heavily pregnant Barrymore quipped, "So right now?"
In terms of bad behavior, he's got nothing on Justin Bieber, but British people sure love to hate on Harry Styles. The One Direction heartthrob was named Villain of the Year at last night's NME Awards in London, making it two years in a row he's won the dubious honor. Styles beat out the likes of Miley Cyrus, Russell Brand, Robin Thicke, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Unsurprisingly, Styles didn't turn up to accept the award. On the bright side, One Direction avoided being named Worst Band for the third year running. That award went to the Brit-rock band The 1975.

Kanye West took it upon himself to give Seth Meyers a lesson in fatherhood on last night's Late Night. When Meyers jokingly asked if West's next album would be more kid-friendly now that he's a father, the rapper replied, "I think artistic, intellectual kid-friendly songs... it’s all in the way you raise and have an understanding and an appreciation for what you’re looking at and what you’re hearing, and why you’re hearing it." West also stated that he would like to be a sculptor but can't because he's a celebrity. Meyers shared a discarded SNL sketch of West interrupting a little girl's prize-winning ceremony at a pumpkin-growing contest, and West stuck around and performed a greatest hits medley that ended, of course, with him throwing the mic on the floor.
Katy Perry took a lot of heat for her Geisha-themed performance this year's American Music Awards, and now she's facing backlash for another perceived insensitivity to other cultures. A Change.org petition is blasting Perry's new Egyptian-themed "Dark Horse" music video, particularly a scene where she magically zaps to death a man wearing a pendant that forms the word "Allah." The petition, which has drawn 44,000 signatures, states, "blasphemy is clearly conveyed in the video, since Katy Perry (who appears to be representing an opposition of God) engulfs the believer and the word God in flames." The video's unlikely to be removed from YouTube, since it doesn't break the site's copyright infringement or pornography rules.
Coldplay shocked fans two (late) nights ago when they released a brand-new single called "Midnight" at midnight Mongolian time. The band first let fans know about the track and its release time by tweeting, "Something new at 0:00 in Ulaanbaatar [a region of Mongolia]," adding the hashtag "#midnight." A few hours later, they tweeted a YouTube link to the song's black-and-white video. The single will presumably appear on the band's upcoming sixth album, rumored to be coming out in May or June. Since the track arrived, many Coldplay fans have noted it sounds an awful lot like something Bon Iver would put out.

Stars React to Harold Ramis' Death
Bill Murray said: "Harold Ramis and I together did the National Lampoon Show together off Broadway, Meatballs, Stripes, Caddyshack, Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day. He earned his keep on this planet. God bless him."
Dan Akroyd's statement to The Hollywood Reporter reads: "(I am) deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my brilliant, gifted, funny friend, co-writer/performer and teacher Harold Ramis. May he now get the answers he was always seeking."
Steve Martin: "So sorry to hear about the death of Harold Ramis, a comedy master. Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, and more"
Jason Biggs: Filling out the paperwork to rename my kid Harold.
Judd Apatow told the Chicago Trib, "When I was 15, I interviewed Harold for my high school radio station, and he was the person that I wanted to be when I was growing up. His work is the reason why so many of us got into comedy. We grew up on Second City TV and Ghostbusters, Vacation, Animal House, Stripes, Meatballs. He literally made every single one of our favorite movies."
Seth MacFarlane: Harold Ramis was a brilliant, shining example for every comedy writer hoping to achieve excellence the field. He will be sorely missed
Tom Arnold: So sad about Harold Ramis. His work changed my life and inspired me and made me want to do what I do. Very nice man and a good neighbor too
Zach Braff: If you're my age and got into comedy, Harold Ramis was one of the reasons. Life is fast and over too soon.
Albert Brooks: So sad to hear about Harold Ramis. Comedy lost a big one
Jimmy Kimmel: "I collect spores, molds, and fungus" - condolences to the family and friends of the great Harold Ramis
Jon Favreau: “No no not Harold Ramis. Worked for him years ago. He was the real deal. Growing up, his work changed my life. He will be missed”, while Roth tweets, “Oh no, Harold Ramis died. One of my filmmaking heroes. Caddyshack, Stripes, Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day… So sad.”
Robin Thicke and Paula Patton announced yesterday that they'll be ending their eight-year marriage. The couple released a joint statement reading, "We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time." Thicke, 36, and Patton, 38, were high school sweethearts and are parents to four-year-old Julian Fuego. Breakup rumors have plagued for them past year after Thicke was caught cozying up to a few unidentified women on more than one occasion.
Seth Meyers made his debut as the host of Late Night last night, opening the show riffing with his new band leader, fellow SNL alum Fred Armisen. Meyers' cold open was a Weekend Update-like monologue, featuring cute jokes like, "The brassiere turns 101 this week, and so does everyone who still calls it a 'brassiere.'" Meyers' first guest was Amy Poehler, who referred to the next guest, Vice President Joe Biden, as a "gorgeous charm monster." Biden hinted at his political future when Meyers asked him about his 2016 plans, joking, "I planned on making a major announcement tonight, but I decided tonight's your night, so I'm hoping you'll invite me back." New York pop duo A Great Big World closed the show with their #1 hit "Say Something."

Video went viral over the weekend of Miley Cyrus performing a country-tinged cover of Outkast's hit "Hey Ya!". The footage from her Tacoma, Washington concert shows the pop star singing a twangy, slowed down version of the beloved tune, backed by a banjo, cello and acoustic guitar. The result is surprisingly catchy and has gotten more love than hate on the Internet so far. In true Miley fashion, the 21-year-old also makes the most of the "shake it like a Polaroid picture" line by bringing back her signature twerking to the audience's delight (or horror, depending on your perspective).
Train, say your prayers, eat your vitamins — and don't break a hip! Wrestling legend Hulk Hogan is making a comeback with the WWE at the tender age of 60, the New York Daily News confirmed Friday. The Hulkster will appear on Monday Night Raw tonight, although it's not clear whether he'll wrestle. Come April, the WWE Hall of Famer will also serve as the larger-than-life host for WrestleMania 30 in New Orleans. “Words cannot express how excited I am to be back in the WWE family,” he said in a statement. “I only have one question for the WWE Universe: Whatcha gonna do when Hulkamania runs wild as the host of WrestleMania 30?”
Katy Perry was unfashionably late to Moschino's runway show at Milan Fashion Week Thursday night, and was met with a chorus of boos from annoyed photographers who'd waited an hour for her to arrive. Perry showed up around 8:55 p.m. for the 8 p.m. show, then came out to pose on the runway for pictures where she was met with booing. An insider claims "that was the time she was told to come," while another source simply chalked it up to "just getting around the hustle and bustle of Fashion Week."
Have the Oscars gone Grammys? Producers of the 86th Academy Awards announced Friday that Pink will appear on the Oscar show. The Grammy-winning singer joins a lineup already set to include performances by U2, Pharrell Williams, Bette Midler, rocker Karen O and Broadway star Idina Menzel. Producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan didn't specify what Pink's performance will entail. They also haven't said what song Midler will sing. Williams, Menzel, Karen O and U2 are set to perform their nominated original songs on the March 2 show.
"America's most patriotic rock band" performed America's most patriotic song at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday. And the reviews were mixed. Madison Rising's rock rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” had a few drivers chuckling and some fans shaking their heads before the Nationwide Series season opener. "Well, I wish they would just sing the damn song," driver Brad Keselowski said after the race. Meanwhile, lead singer Dave Bray countered, "Yes, we took some liberties. We wanted to make it a rock song people could sing and enjoy.”

Christina Aguilera is not only newly engaged to her longtime boyfriend Matthew Rutler, she's also expecting a baby with him. Aguilera, 33, and Rutler, 29, have been together since 2010, and Rutler proposed to his pop star girlfriend on Valentine's Day. A source tells People, “They’re very much in love and are really excited to take this next step!” Aguilera is already mom to 6-year-old Max, her son with ex-husband Jordan Bratman.
Katy Perry debuted the video for her #1 single "Dark Horse" yesterday, and it's a wild one. The pop star morphs into "Katy-Patra, queen of Memphis, Egypt, and sports a few different Egyptian-themed outfits, complete with wigs, elaborate headdresses and a bejeweled grill. Perry sits in a throne while an array of suitors presents her with gifts, including diamonds and a giant bowl of Hot Cheetos. Juicy J delivers his verse from a sarcophagus, and Jiff the Pomeranian makes an adorable appearance. Perry eventually transforms into a winged scarab beetle atop a gold-plated pyramid. Just another day in the life of Katy Perry.
Keith Urban is in great shape, so it's no surprise that he likes to wear form-fitting t-shirts to show it off. But the country star tells Ryan Seacrest that his clothes have gotten him in trouble with the powers that be on American Idol. “I have to check with the Idol people sometimes because sometimes they aren’t appropriate,” Keith laughs of his tight t-shirts. “Every now and then [they tell me I can't wear one]. Let’s just say every now and then, I have to take a picture of my shirt and send it to them." Keith Urban's muscles get censored but J. Lo gets free rein with her cleavage. That doesn't seem fair.
Jennifer Aniston is in talks to star in a Mean Girls spin-off called Mean Moms. The film is being adapted from Rosalind Wisemen's book Queen Bee Moms & Kingpin Dads: Dealing with the Parents, Teachers, Coaches and Counselors Who Can Make — or Break — Your Child’s Future. (Wiseman also penned Queen Bees & Wannabes, the book that was the inspiration for Mean Girls). Mean Moms, just like Mean Girls, will start with a family moving to a new town and show the mother's struggle to fit into a world of competitive parenting. If this movie has anything like the hilariously nasty dynamic of Dance Moms, we're in.

So I'm not coming back guys. I just want to ... I don't want to wear out my welcome there. ''You know what I'm saying. I have so many other things that I want to do. I haven't released an album in four years. I'm almost done with my album.''

Leighton Meester and Adam Brody have reportedly pulled off a celebrity rarity -- a secret wedding. Less than three months after getting engaged, the couple have tied the knot during a secret ceremony. No official confirmation has come yet (they've actually never even spoken about their relationship publicly), but Brody stopped to take a picture with a fan at LAX over the weekend, and the photo shows him wearing a gold wedding band on his left ring finger.
R. Kelly is in hot water again after allegedly falling behind on his child support payments to ex-wife Andrea Kelly. Andrea claims that Kelly is has failed to pay $20,833 he owes. Last year, Kelly fell behind over $100,000 in child support payments but eventually paid the debt off. But now the singer's attorneys are worried that if he doesn't attend a March 27 hearing in Chicago, he'll be jailed for 30 days to six months, because he didn't show up at a November hearing. Even worse, a source tells the New York Post that Kelly's lawyers haven't been in contact with him, because they don't even know where he is. Source says the singer is "in a bunker" and "unreachable."
For years, rumors of a Beetlejuice sequel have run rampant. Now, Michael Keaton has teased that he could return as the titular ghost in Tim Burton's supernatural comedy. "I've e-mailed Tim a couple of times, talked to the writer a couple of times, but all really, really preliminary stuff," Keaton told MTV News. "I always said that's the one thing I'd like to do again, if I ever did anything again. But it kind of required Tim to be involved some way or another." So will Burton come back, and possibly as director? "Without giving too much away we've talked to each other, and e-mailed each other, and if he's in, it's going to be hard not to be in," Keaton said.

Jimmy Fallon gave himself a cautious introduction on his first episode of the Tonight Show last night. "I'm your host, for now," Fallon said, referencing Conan O'Brien's short-lived run as host. Fallon got an incredible amount of celebrity support, with Robert de Niro, Tina Fey, Joe Namath, Rudy Giuliani, Mariah Carey, Tracy Morgan, Joan Rivers, Kim Kardashian, Seth Rogen, Lindsay Lohan, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mike Tyson, Lady Gaga, and Stephen Colbert all making surprise drop-in appearances. Fallon and his first official guest, Will Smith, donned matching overalls and performed "The Evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing," showing off the pop and lock, the dirt off your shoulder, the "leg thing no one can ever do," and, of course, the twerk. Musical guests U2 performed "Invisible" from the roof of 30 Rockefeller Center as well as a special acoustic version of "Ordinary Love."
Bradley Cooper wore a classy tuxedo when he attended the White House's State Dinner and met President Obama, but it turns out he left out a key element of his outfit that night. In an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday, Cooper admitted that he wasn't wearing underwear. “So I’m... prepping for a new movie and I’m trying to gain weight fast so I’ve gained about 15 pounds in four weeks, and nothing fits me anymore," he explained. When he put on his tux for the big night, he said, “I had to go commando, number one, 'cause there was no room at all. I did. I had to…So it was really great. And you have to walk up the stairs and it was a nightmare. They were crazy-town tight. But I made it through."

Justin Bieber is reportedly furious with Miley Cyrus and has cut off all ties with the singer after she offered unsolicited advice to him on television. "You've got a lot of money. Pay people to make sure you don't get in trouble and party at your house. Buy a house, and add a club to it," Miley said during an appearance on The Tonight Show last month. Apparently, The Biebs was unimpressed and called Miley to tell her to "keep her f**king mouth shut." A source claims, "When she defended herself by telling Justin he really needs to get his act together before he implodes, he exploded and hung up. Now he’s telling his peeps, 'I hate her!'" Real mature, "Bizzle."
Bruce Jenner wants out of Hollywood, TMZ reports, and out of his family's long-running reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Sources say Jenner won't return for another season if E! decides to renew the show, and that he seemingly wants little to do with the season currently being filmed, even insisting that all his scenes be shot at his new home in Malibu. Jenner apparently has a "clear vision" of what he now wants in life, which includes more golfing and more time with his kids and less time on camera or in Calabasas, where Kris Jenner still lives. Kris, meanwhile, is denying rumors that Bruce is leaving the show.
Are Drake and Rihanna about to become an official couple? In his new Rolling Stone interview, Drake gushes about the Barbados beauty, calling her "the ultimate fantasy." Meanwhile, HollywoodLife.com is reporting that Drake pulled out all the stops for Valentine's Day, sending both Rihanna and her mother white roses and champagne, as well as a card for the singer with the simple message, "Thinking about you." A source claims, "When she opened the envelope she was like 'Oh this man is too good. Too f**king good.'" Nice move sending flowers to RiRi's mom, Drake!
Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon showed off their so-called acting skills during an interview with Sway Calloway on MTV First. The couple agreed to reenact a scene from Mean Girls, only after Carey warning Cannon not to "try to change the whole dialogue and ruin it." The diva, of course, took on the role of Rachel McAdams' queen bee Regina Georgia, while Cannon played Lindsay Lohan's Cady Heron. The couple reenacted one of Mean Girls' most famous and most hilarious scenes, and Carey admittedly did nail the line, "So you agree. You think you're really pretty."

RadarOnline.com reports that Kanye West‘s Yeezus Tour is in big trouble. Apparently, low tickets sales and low demand have caused vendors to slash the cost of attending his concert in half, hoping they will fill seats. The rapper has a Feb. 22 concert scheduled at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and an email was blasted out earlier this week offering $35 tickets -- down from the usual $69 cost. The gossip website claims that Kanye's tour has been struggling in venues all over America, with a show in Kansas City selling a disappointing 4,500 tickets out of the 19,000 available seats. Ouch.
In honor of Valentine's Day, Billboard's compiled a list of the top 50 love songs of all time -- that is, the top 50 Hot 100 hits with the word "love" in their titles.

Iconic newsman Tom Brokaw revealed yesterday that he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer that affects blood cells in the bone marrow, back in August. The 74-year-old released a statement reading, "With the exceptional support of my family, medical team and friends, I am very optimistic about the future and look forward to continuing my life, my work and adventures still to come. I remain the luckiest guy I know." Brokaw was the anchor of NBC Nightly News for 22 years and continues to work for the network as a special correspondent. He's continued to work throughout his treatment, including contributions to NBC's coverage of the Sochi Winter Olympics.
Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has been voted the most wanted woman in the world, according to AskMen.com's Top 99 Most Desirable Women of 2014, while overexposed Miley Cyrus ranks dead last on the list of 99 females. In fact, the website noted that while voters had actually ranked Cyrus "higher on the list," staffers "took the editorial decision to symbolically put her at #99." Community's Alison Brie came in at #2, followed by Emily Ratakjowski (one of the models in Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" video) at #3. Jennifer Lawrence, who topped the list in 2013, fell to #4 this year.
According to Simon Cowell, One Direction could be starring in their own reality show. Cowell spoke to reporters at the Britain's Got Talent auditions yesterday and revealed, "I think there's something in the works, a possible TV show. We're going to be talking about that in the next couple of weeks." He also announced that the quintet will be releasing a new album, the follow-up to last year's Midnight Memories, sometime this year. One thing Cowell doesn't have planned for One Direction is having one of them be the godfather to his unborn son. "If you ask one, you've got to ask five, so I don't think I can do that," he says.
Fall Out Boy is releasing their own version of the viral game "Flappy Bird" after the original game was removed from the app store by its creators. The band tweeted the news on Monday, saying that their version would be released "as soon as it's approved," adding, "Shoutout to OG Flappy Bird, RIP." This isn't Fall Out Boy's first foray into the world of video games. In 2009, they created their own version of "Oregon Trail," called "Fall Out Boy Trail."

Why take your kids on a field trip when they could learn so much from a Miley Cyrus concert? "Even though parents probably won't think this, I think my show is educational for kids," the 21-year-old singer told Fuse News with a straight-face. "They're going to be exposed to art most people don't know about." She adds, "People are taught to look at things so black and white, especially in small towns. I'm excited to take this tour to places where [art] like this wouldn't be accepted, where kids wouldn't learn about this different kind of art." Miley's 38-city 'Bangerz' tour kicks off in Vancouver on February 14.
John Lennon once claimed that the Beatles were bigger than Jesus, and now Harry Styles is claiming that One Direction is bigger than the Beatles -- but only in terms of fame. Styles tells Top of the Pops, "None of us think we're in the same league as them music-wise. We'd be total fools if we did. Fame-wise, it's probably even bigger, but we don't stand anywhere near them in terms of music." He did make the inevitable comparison between the Beatles' arrival in America 50 years ago and One Direction's own introduction to the U.S.: "Stepping off the plane, the girls, the madness. It was exactly the same as when we got there - just 50 years earlier."
Clint Eastwood proved himself to be a real-life hero when he saved a man's life at a recent golf event. The 83-year-old actor spotted Steve John, director of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am golf tournament, choking and quickly performed the Heimlich maneuver on him. "Clint saved my life," John tells the Carmel Pine Cone. "A piece of cheese went in my mouth, and suddenly I couldn't breathe. It was as bad as it could have been." Eastwood says, "I looked into his eyes and saw that look of panic people have when they see their life passing before their eyes. It looked bad... I gave him three good jolts, and that got it out. And then I made him drink a big glass of water with a bunch of lemon squeezed in it."
Shia LaBeouf continued to make a farce of his career this weekend, wearing a brown paper bag over his head at the Berlin premiere of his new movie Nymphomaniac. The bag had eyeholes and "I Am Not Famous Anymore" written on it in black marker. LaBeouf has been tweeting the same phrase in capitol letters on a daily basis since January 13. At a press junket earlier in the day, LaBeouf was asked why he joined a film with so many sex scenes, and he replied, "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea." The quote comes from Manchester United football player Eric Cantona, who spoke the words during a press conference following his assault conviction in 1995. LaBeouf left the stage after just one question.
The Outsiders is country outlaw Eric Church's highly anticipated fourth album and the follow-up to his 2011 #1 album Chief.

This week sees another hot new country release, Frankie Ballard's Sunshine & Whiskey, which has already spawned the Top 20 hit "Helluva Life." South Carolina alt-country outfit Band of Horses releases their first live album, Acoustic at the Ryman, a 10-song collection culled from the band's April 2013 shows at Nashville's legendary Ryman Auditorium.

Tonight Show host Jay Leno signed off on his 22-year career behind the desk Thursday with a few jokes and plenty of tears. In his final monologue before turning the reins over to Jimmy Fallon, Leno cracked, "When I started hosting, Justin Bieber wasn’t even born yet. That's why we call those the good old days." The rest of the show featured a star-studded lineup that included Billy Crystal, Oprah, Carol Burnett, Garth Brooks, and for some inexplicable reason, Kim Kardashian. In a taped message, President Obama offered Leno a job as an ambassador to Antarctica. By the end of the night, Leno choked up as he addressed fans and thanked them for being a part of "the greatest 22 years of my life." But his last shout-out went to his wife of more than 30 years, Mavis: "I'm coming home, honey!"

Sheen initially tweeted an apology to Kutcher, writing, "Ashton, message received. So sorry... My bad, I was pissed at other crap & took it out on you. Hope u r good." But he changed his tune just two hours later, tweeting a threat to Kutcher: "But news flash Dood, you ever tell me to shut the F*** up, EVER again, and I'll put you on a hospital food diet for a year. c #YaFeelMe Jr?"

Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx romance rumors refuse to die. A source tells the New York Post that the couple has been seeing each other since last summer but are keeping their relationship a secret because of Foxx's friendship with Holmes' ex-husband Tom Cruise.

Foxx has denied a romantic relationship with the Dawson's Creek actress, but the Post's insider says, “Jamie is being careful because he has a lot of respect for Tom."

Bruno Mars opened his Super Bowl halftime show with a bang, following a children's choir singing his song "Billionaire" with an extended drum solo before joining his band to sing "Locked Out of the Heaven." Mars showed off his fancy footwork while performing his hits "Treasure" and "Runaway Baby," and then welcomed Red Hot Chili Peppers on stage to perform their 1991 hit "Give It Away." The freezing cold in New Jersey didn't stop RHCP frontman Anthony Kiedis and bassist Flea from performing shirtless. Mars closed the show solo, first showing a video clip of military members overseas greeting their families, and then singing a passionate rendition of his ballad "Just the Way You Are."

"I was with him since I was 16 and nothing’s ever going to make that go away," she says. "I’ve known this guy all that time and if it doesn’t work out, I can still smile and love him and he can love me and that’s great, that’s the way to be. Life is too short."
