One Direction star Niall Horan has laughed off reports suggesting he enjoyed a dinner date with his celebrity crush Katy Perry on Wednesday (04Dec13) after they were both photographed leaving the same New York restaurant moments after one another. The boyband singer has made no secret of his lust for Perry and jokingly proposed to John Mayer's girlfriend via Twitter.com in October (13) after meeting her backstage at a star-studded event.
Horan sent gossips into a spin again on Wednesday after he and Perry were both spotted at Manhattan's trendy Soho House, sparking rumours he had landed his dream date - but the Best Song Ever hitmaker insists the run-in was just a pleasant coincidence.
During an interview with U.S. radio host Ryan Seacrest on Thursday morning (05Dec13), the 20 year old explained, "I was in there and I think she was doing an interview or something and she was there. I was leaving and she left and we didn't have dinner or anything together. I just said, 'Hello' to her."
Pop star Lady Gaga played a concert comeback on Sunday (01Sep13) as she opened the month-long iTunes Festival in London. Adele and One Direction's Niall Horan were in the audience for Gaga's hour-long show at the Roundhouse venue, where she played her first full gig since calling off her world tour earlier this year (13) to undergo hip surgery.
Gaga performed opening track Aura in a cage hovering above the stage, telling the crowd, "What's up, London? Do you have to scream so loud? I can barely hear myself."
She later added, "To say that I've missed you, it's a bit of an understatement."
The Born This Way hitmaker, who sang eight songs from upcoming album ARTPOP and none of her hits, also gave fans a look at the "real" her as she tore off her wig to reveal her short brunette hair.
She explained, "When I didn't feel strong enough to be me, I created someone else. And it worked. So here I am, the human underneath the wigs. This is my real hair."
Gaga was the first act to play this year's (13) iTunes Festival, which will also include shows by Sir Elton John, Queens Of The Stone Age, Justin Timberlake, and Katy Perry.
"Met the best guitarist of our generation last night, unbelievable musician, great guy! After (performing) Gravity he walked over handed me this, legend! One of those moments." One Direction star Niall Horan is left star-struck after John Mayer presented him with an autographed guitar at a gig on Saturday (24Aug13).
