Carey Mulligan is maybe allegedly supposedly possibly getting engaged to Marcus Mumford from that band that looks like it's made of ex-boyfriends, Mumford & Sons. Looking at pictures of them together — she with the man's hat and man's shoes; he with that haircut — feels like gazing upon lost footage from Oliver! It's so heartwarming when street urchins find love. Please sir, can I have some more? [Daily Mail]

Justin Bieber showed up on a stage at a Selena Gomez concert, gave her a hug, and then sang Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me A River." I can't believe I am typing this, but Beebz sounds really, really good. Although it is kind of freaky that he was 8 years old when that song came out. Then again, maybe the universe has been designed so that a new soulful white boy will emerge every nine years and serenade us with the words, "You don't have to say what you did, I found out from him." [NYDN]
Speaking of The Beebz: Anthony Kiedis says: "I sat on an airplane recently, coming from Hawaii to Los Angeles, with Rick Rubin just across the aisle, watching the Justin Bieber movie, Never Say Never. I cried twice during that film and I want the world to know that!" [Contact Music]
