Could Katy Perry and John Mayer be a thing again? Us Weekly says maybe. The couple, who split a year ago, were spotted getting cozy together at a Super Bowl afterparty.
A source told Us Weekly that Mayer, 37, was waiting behind the scenes to congratulate Perry, 30, when she came off stage after her halftime performance. The couple posed for a photo with Perry’s fellow performer Missy Elliot at the big game’s afterparty, which Elliot shared via Twitter.
Us Weekly reported earlier that Mayer and Perry have been seen together in Los Angeles recently, dining together and sparking rumors of a reunion.
Meanwhile, after the show, Perry commemorated the performance by getting a tattoo — “XLIX”— on her finger, posting a photo on her Instagram account with the comment: “I thought it would be appropriate to draw blood tonight.”
Almost 18,000 people have signed a petition against Nick Offerman’s NASCAR ad, saying it’s offensive to people with celiac disease, People.com reports.
The ad plays on Offerman’s manly image — honed on the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation, a on which he plays no-nonsense libertarian Ron Swanson — and features the line in its “America’s gone soft”-themed narration: “When our idea of danger is eating gluten, there’s trouble afoot.”
People.com reports that a man identified as “Gluten Dude” started circulating a petition last week to have NBC cancel the ad. “[The ad] implies that we’re soft,” he writes. “We’re weak … we’re part of America’s problem. When all we’re trying to do is manage our disease.” He posted on Jan. 31 that NBC promised to remove the reference, but it ran during the Super Bowl Sunday night.
Former rap music mogul Marion “Suge” Knight, founder of one of the genre’s leading labels, had his $2 million bail revoked in Los Angeles after his arrest in running down and killing a man.

Authorities also cited Knight’s history of violent crimes and the possibility he would intimidate witnesses.
Knight is scheduled to appear in court in Compton Tuesday.
Dierks Bentley says there won’t be any hard feelings if childhood friend Miranda Lambert takes home the Grammy Award for best country album next week.
Bentley and Lambert are both nominated in the category. Lambert won a Grammy in 2010, but Bentley is still waiting for his first win. The singers toured together and collaborated on music early in their careers, and Bentley says his feelings toward Lambert haven’t changed over the years.
“A win for her is a win for everyone,” Bentley says.
In other awards show news, the 39-year-old singer received seven nominations at the Academy of Country Music Awards announced last week. His is the second most nominated act, a notch behind Lambert, who earned eight nods.
