Justin Bieber making music with Austin Mahone


It was only a matter of time. Pop music buddies Justin Bieber and Austin Mahone are in cahoots. How we know: Bieber posted a pic on Instagram with the Fort Lauderdale-based MmmYeah singer, 17, captioned “New music.”

“Austin and Justin have met before, and they really respect each other's music,” a source told People. “They work with a lot of the same producers, so they got together in the studio.”

Mahone will release his album later this year. Mahomies can catch the teen May 4 at Sun Fest in West Palm Beach. Let’s hope he doesn’t go down the same, um, path, as his 20-year-old wayward pal.

New attitude

Losing weight is a struggle for pretty much everyon,e but for Lorraine Bracco the task was more personal. The Someone to Watch Over Me star, 59, writes in her book To the Fullest that she decided to take charge of her body after both her parents died of ill health in 2010. At the time Bracco weighed 183 and now is 35 pounds lighter thanks to cutting out sugar, dairy and most grains.

Just a number

For Doris Day, turning 90 on Thursday was no biggie. The actress-turned-animal activist told Closer Weekly: “Oh, I have my little aches and pains now and then, like everyone. But I’ve truly been blessed with good health. ... I love to be outside, walking along the beach or working in my garden.” She said her days are full responding to all the mail she still receives.

Back in

Don’t count Bruce Jenner out just yet. Though the former Olympian separated from Kris Jenner in October, the couple looked on again, holding hands at LAX after touching down from a family trip to Thailand. And despite his bellyaching, it appears that Jenner will indeed keep appearing on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and collecting a check.

Round 2

Taylor Armstrong is trying out marriage again. Radar Online reports the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star will marry lawyer John Bluher this weekend. In 2011, Taylor’s estranged husband Russell Armstrong killed himself shortly after she filed for divorce. Sources tell Radar the bride to be is “hoping to sell pictures of the wedding to an entertainment magazine,” and that the couple will move to Colorado, where her daughter Kennedy has enrolled in school. It isn’t looking likely that Bravo cameras will be rolling anymore for this clan.
