The weird part about Selena Gomez kissing Justin Bieber right on the lips during a time-out in his hockey game isn’t that it happened, or that the photo makes her look like a stunning, if repressed, ’50s housewife greeting her husband after he’s been discharged from the war (I think it’s the hair).

It’s that she touched his sweaty, disgusting hockey face/neck with her clean, presumably showered face/hands. Bieber probably had all his sweat glands lasered off after he made his first million, but if not, this is the surest proof I have that love exists. People insists they are taking a relaxed approach to their relationship, to which I say, “pff.”:

“Justin is still very happy. They have had quiet date nights at home and outings to local, low-key sports,” a Bieber pal tells People exclusively. “They are still catching up and just enjoying hanging out. They have learned from past mistakes and are not putting any pressure on each other. Things are much different and more mature.”

Congrats to the happy couple, and their sweat.

Meryl Streep made a surprise appearance at the annual awards for the Committee to Protect Journalists on Wednesday, where she shared some personal information about herself, but also, Cher.

It turns out that Streep has had two run-ins with physical violence, where she’s been both the victim and a witness: “In one instance, I played dead and waited until the blows stopped—watching like people say you do from about 50 feet above from where I was beaten,” she told the crowd.

In the second instance, she said, someone else was being abused. Streep doesn’t offer details of the assault, other than to say that she “just went completely nuts and went after this man. Ask Cher—she was there.”

Where is there? Yahoo! points out that the two worked together on the 1983 drama Silkwood. Maybe the mystery incident happened on the set? Then again, Cher said in a 2013 Us Weekly column called “25 Things You Don’t Know About Me” that she and Streep “once saved a girl from a large mugger in New York City.” Is this the incident she’s referring to?

A great way to prank your friends (Cher) is to tell a room filled with reporters to “ask” you something. They will almost certainly oblige.
