Apparently Taylor Swift’s relationship with Tom Hiddleston is moving faster than we thought; they have met each other’s parents as of this past weekend, and now, it seems, she sent a text her close friends and said, “I think I am in love and I never felt this way before!'”

If you’re not positive this relationship will last, Chinese retailer Taobao is offering up insurance should the relationship “go down in flames.”

Sellers on e-commerce website Taobao are promoting pseudo-insurance plans that promise to pay buyers back double their investment in the case that new couple Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston break up.

A lock of David Bowie’s hair just sold for $18,750 at an auction in Los Angeles over the weekend. The blonde strands were cut straight from Bowie’s head in 1983 when he went in for a Madam Tussauds Wax Museum sample sitting. Wendy Farrier, a wig maker with Tussauds who worked on the wax Bowie’s mop, asked to keep the hair, which she placed in a frame with a picture of her and the musician. There it sat for 33 years until Heritage Auctions sold it off. According to the listing, a portion of the proceeds will go to a Thai dog and cat welfare center.

Justin Timberlake had to apologize to his Twitter followers after angering people on the social media site.  Timberlake received a lot of backlash for what some followers deemed to be racially insensitive language implying that everyone’s struggles are the same.  Timberlake wrote “I feel misunderstood.  I responded to a specific tweet that wasn’t meant to be a general response. I shouldn’t have responded anyway…I apologize to anyone that felt I was out of turn. I have nothing but LOVE FOR YOU AND ALL OF US,”

Remember that scandalous Kanye West video that depicts 12 celebs in the buff, sleeping together?  Kanye isn’t getting quite the reactions he was hoping for, but some of the celebs featured in the video are addressing their likenesses.  George Bush’s aide had this to say about the former President’s “appearance“ in the video; “In case there was any doubt, I’ll state the obvious: That is not President Bush.  He is in much better shape.”
