Selena Gomez made 70 fans’ days on Saturday afternoon as the singer hosted a listening party and Q&A session with contest winners at Rec Room. The lucky contest winners got a first listen to four new and unreleased songs off of her new album followed by a 20 minute Q&A session in which Gomez answered questions about her life and her career (her mom Mandy Teefey is pregnant). The 20-year-old-singer, who said she is, like, totally single, took pictures with all her fans, some who came dressed to look like their idol.

Pain & Gain star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was spotted dining Saturday night in The Forge’s subterranean Lafitte Wine Room. Johnson and his unidentified female guest enjoyed an early dinner, sampling a variety of menu items and left around 10 p.m. For what it’s worth — and it’s a lot — the Lafitte Wine Room is only open twice per year for ultra-special, romantic occasions. Dinner in that room on Valentine’s Day costs upwards of $5,000. Later that night, the restaurant’s owner Shareef Malnik and girlfriend Gabrielle Anwar were seen slow dancing in the corner of the bar, “oblivious to the people around them.” On Sunday, Mexican singer and actress Alejandra Guzman was seen having Mother’s Day brunch with her daughter and her daughter’s boyfriend.

Reality star, designer and stylist Rachel Zoe was seen enjoying a quiet dinner on Friday and Sunday night with her family at Steak 954 while in town for her niece’s bat mitzvah.

Also seen Saturday night at SET was comedian George Lopez, in town for a signing of his autobiography I’m Not Gonna Lie at Books & Books, who popped a bottle of Dom Perignon with a male friend. On Sunday, football player Jeremy Shockey was seen hanging out at SET’s popular house music party.

The last remaining Bee Gee, Barry Gibb, celebrated his wife Linda’s birthday with 16 friends Saturday night at Prime 112.
