Neil Patrick Harris
Neil Patrick Harris hasn't turned down possibly hosting Late Show when David Letterman retires, but he doesn't sound too thrilled about the job.

Harris has been rumored to be on CBS's wish list to replace Letterman after the hose leaves the Late Show in 2015. Other names include Stephen Colbert and Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson.

Katy Perry Dyes Her Hair 'Slime Green'

Katy Perry
Katy Perry found a unique way to celebrate Spring: dying her hair several shades of green.

Perry revealed the new 'do, which was cut to shoulder-length, on Instagram. “SLIME GREEN FOR SPRING by my bb's @neeenaboo & @brantmayfield at the @mcmillansalon,” she wrote.

Perry told E!, "I've wanted to go slime green for a long time. It's sp...

Austin Mahone and Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber's fans freaked out for a few hours when a hoax website uploaded an edited photo to make it appear like the pop star was kissing Austin Mahone.

Bieber and Mahone have been in the studio working on a collaboration, and fake news site Huzlers.com edited a picture of the two kissing a fan on the cheeks – removing the fan in between them so it looked like they were kissing one another instead.

Under the guise of a "deleted tweet," the website posted a fake screen shot that had the photo and Bieber's comment, “meet my new boyfriend. I'm Bi, so what? f—k what anyone thinks.”
