KATY PERRY AND ORLANDO BLOOM’S DOG, MIGHTY IS MISSING: One of Katy Perry and fiancé Orlando Bloom’s fur babies has gone missing. Orlando posted on Instagram that Mighty – who, like Katy’s famous dog Nugget, is a teacup poodle – is “MISSING in Montecito California.” “He is chipped and his collar has a number to call – if you take him to your local vet or shelter or police station he can be traced back to me for a reward,” Orlando captioned a photo of the pup. “Please only send REAL INFO my heart is already broken so please don’t add insult to injury.”
ZEDD & JASMINE THOMPSON TEAM UP ON ‘FUNNY’: Zedd and Jasmine Thompson have teamed up on a new track called “Funny.” The official accompanying music video was directed by Jack Karaszweski and marks the first new music from Zedd this year. The video is taken from the perspective of Jasmine’s Macbook. It goes from her playing around taking selfies, to joining a Zoom call featuring both Zedd and plenty of dogs. Lewis Capaldi also makes an appearance in the video topless and having the time of his life while shoving chips in his mouth.
CHARLIE PUTH RELEASES STRIPPED-DOWN VERSION OF ‘GIRLFRIEND’: Charlie Puth has released a new, stripped-down version of his latest single, “Girlfriend.” He debuted the mellow, acoustic rendition of the track on The Late Late Show with James Corden last month, performing the song in his house with just his piano as accompaniment. “Girlfriend,” Charlie’s first solo track of 2020, has amassed nearly four million streams in the U.S. so far, as well as 15 million streams worldwide. The playful video for the track, in which Charlie impatiently waits for a dinner date to arrive, was released last week.
JUSTIN BIEBER’S DEFAMATION SUIT MOVES FORWARD WITH TWITTER SUBPOENA: Justin Bieber won a small victory Thursday in his defamation suit against two social media users who accused him of sexual assault. A judge granted a motion by Justin’s lawyers to subpoena Twitter for information on the identities of the two women, who are known only as Danielle and Kadi online. “We just want to uncover who is behind these two accounts and it may be the same person,” Bieber’s lawyer, Evan N. Spiegel, told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Terry Green. Justin filed a $20 million defamation lawsuit against the accusers last month, claiming their allegations of assault in 2014 and 2015 can be disproved by “indisputable documentary evidence” – including eyewitness accounts and paparazzi photos showing where Justin really was on the days in question.
