Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez: It’s back on


Blink and you may have missed it. Because Justin Bieber already removed the sexy Instagram video of him and Selena Gomez dirty dancing in a Texas studio. It’s unclear when the footage was shot, but the two definitely seem like a couple again. Case in point: Bieber dedicated the song As Long as You Love Me to Gomez while at the SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival in Austin Sunday (she was there, too). JB high-tailed it to the fest after sitting for his deposition in his paparazzo lawsuit in Miami. TMZ reports that Gomez’s entourage insists that Gomez wants to get over him, and that’s why she checked into rehab.

Alone again

Josh Lucas wasn’t expecting to become a single dad but life has a funny way of working out sometimes. The 42-year-old actor and voice of Home Depot split from his wife, freelance writer and cervical cancer survivor Jessica Ciencin Henriquez, 28, in January. The two met in a dog park in NYC in 2011 and got pregnant shortly thereafter.

Keep on rockin’

Steven Tyler is mingling with the hired help. The Daily Mail reports the Aerosmith rocker, 65, is hooking up with his 20-something assistant, Aimee Preston, who used to work for Donald Trump. Pictures of Tyler and Preston, sharing a blanket-shawl while watching the sunset in Malibu, sure look cozy.

Meanwhile, Keith Richards is writing a kids’ book. The Rolling Stone who came to define adults-only lifestyle of rock is coming out with Gus & Me: The Story of My Granddad and My First Guitar in the fall. The Little Brown book will be illustrated by his daughter, Theodora Richards, whose mom is Patti Hansen.

Outta there

At least he still has Dancing with the Stars: Tom Bergeron is leaving as host of America's Funniest Home Videos after 13 years, he told Vulture. Bergeron’s replacement is unknown.

Bottle battle

Lara Stone's rise to supermodel hasn't been without hurdles. In 2009, she checked into rehab for a drinking problem, she tells Harper’s Bazaar. Stone recalls keeping a bottle of vodka stashed in her purse at the height of her problems. “One day I woke up and thought, I can't live like this anymore,” she says.
