1. Tim Tebow is stepping out with a new love interest
Noted Christian/underperforming football player Tim Tebow has a new girlfriend. The New York Jet is reportedly dating actress Camilla Belle — who, having dated Joe Jonas in 2009, is “no stranger to famous virgins,” says TMZ. Reportedly, during a bowling outing in Jacksonville, Florida, Tebow and Belle were “overly affectionate... holding hands and touching” — a display for which “overly affectionate” seems an extremely generous description.
2. Porn star Jessie Andrews set to appear in new Miley Cyrus music video
Miley Cyrus has taken pains to distance herself from her squeaky-clean image, but the singer is taking “adult” to a whole new level by casting 20-year-old porn star Jessie Andrews in the video for her new single “Decisions.” Fox News reports that the risqué video will also feature “a unicorn, a goat, and a woman who smashes watermelons with her breasts” — a feat so daring that even enthusiastic watermelon-smasher Gallagher has never tried it.

5. Taylor Swift won’t date cheaters anymore
In case her half-dozen songs about straying boyfriends weren't clear enough, Taylor Swift has announced she won't put up with cheating anymore.
