Producer Naughty Boy has wasted no time talking to the press about he and Zayn’s freshly abolished friendship, telling The Sun it’s “a bit sad” they are now at odds, considering Zayn referred to him as his “best friend” as recently as March this year. Zayn’s former bandmates also took the opportunity to drag the controversial producer during their concert in Vancouver on July 17, reading out a fan sign that declared “Niall has more tattoos than Naughty Boy has fans” (context: Niall has no tattoos).
■ Justin Timberlake and Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Carlton on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, busted out “The Carlton” dance together at the American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament in Lake Tahoe on Friday.
■ Justin Bieber bites the head off a bat during his performance of Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train” on Lip Sync Battle.
■ Five Seconds of Summer perform their new song, “She’s Kinda Hot,” for the first time during their concert in Las Vegas over the weekend.
■ To celebrate the release of his self-titled album in the UK, Nick Jonas surprised two lucky fans with a ride to his show at the O2 Academy Islington.
