File this one under slightly creepy -- In a recent interview, Katy Perry confessed to asking for some very personal keepsakes from a couple of her fellow pop stars. ''One of the first times I went to the Grammys, I got to share a dressing room with Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift," she recalls. "And I asked for a lock of their hair from each one of them, which is totally creepy, but awesome.'' Perry says she put little bows around each lock and kept them in her purse. She says, "That was my little secret. I'm a freak!'' Wonder if John Mayer's ever stumbled across that lock of Taylor Swift's hair...
Showbiz Spy and the National Enquirer claim Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf recently scrapped on the set of their new WWII movie. A source tells the sites, ''Shia became a bit too intrigued by the machine guns in the tank’s turrets and started firing the guns wildly between scenes. The guns were loaded with blanks, not real bullets, but Brad was NOT happy with Shia goofing around. He tapped him on the shoulder, meaning to caution him, but Shia whipped the gun turret around and hit Brad smack in the face with the hot barrel! Brad, livid, yelled, ‘Quit f****** around!’ Everyone froze, but Shia started laughing — and Brad just snapped! He lunged – and crew members literally had to pull him off the jerk. Shia yelled, ‘Hey, man, what’s your problem?’ Bellowed Brad, ‘I have 5-year-olds more mature than you!’ Later, they both returned, and Shia – looking very sheepish – turned to Brad and asked: ‘Are we good?’ They shook hands and we’re happy to report there’ve been no further altercations!”
