He may only be 18-years-old, but when it comes to doting on the woman he loves, Justin Bieber spares no expense. The young pop star decided to take his relationship with Selena Gomez to new heights, literally, by renting a helicopter for a romantic trip ride over Niagara Falls on Sunday night in between rehearsals for the MuchMusic Video Awards, according to People magazine. (Jeez, youths, whatever happened to a trip to the mall, complete with a stop at Orange Julius?)
And while Bieber is becoming pretty well known for his extravagant date nights with Gomez, he’s not the only one who likes to go all out for their special someone. Here’s a look back at some of the craziest dates in Hollywood history:
The freshly divorced reality star jetted off to France for the Cannes Film Festival last month, where her rapper beau was showcasing his new movie, Cruel Summer. Because nothing says “Let’s take things slow” better than traveling halfway around the world for a little one-on-one time at a gigantic film festival.
The newly engaged couple have gone on several dates to this raunchy show in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Kids today, cuddling up during an erotic stage act, amiright? Please tell me I’m wrong.
Justin Bieber Rents Out Staples Center
Bieber began excessively doting on his 19-year-old girlfriend long before this recent helicopter ride. In fact, the pop star went so far as to rent out the Los Angeles Staples Center for Gomez last year, where the couple dined on steak and pasta while taking in a screening of the film, Titanic. Near far, wherever you are, you can pretty much guarantee your boyfriend won’t do this.
The on-again, off-again duo went on a ski date last December in the mountains of Jackson, Wyoming. And while that in itself may sound romantic, this snowy wonderland is reportedly where Timberlake ended up actually proposing to Biel. Heym it’s not every day a former *NSYNC star asks you to marry them.
The Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, CA played host to some of Hollywood’s hottest couples over the weekend, including Twilight sweethearts Edward and Bella Pattinson and Stewart. The popular duo jammed out at a few concerts and eventually met up with Katy Perry and her then-boyfriend, Robert Ackroyd. Ah, to live in a world where it’s actually possible to double date with such Hollywood A-listers. Now that would be a real teenage dream. Or, grown-up. No judgment.
Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart Go To Vegas
She may have reunited with her ex-hubby, Marc Anthony, on the Las Vegas stage last month, but later that same weekend the American Idol judge took in a show of Cirque du Soleil with her 25-year-old beau, Casper Smart. Talk about having your ex-cake and eating it too. Who knew tight-rope walkers and contortionists could be thought of as romantic. But it’s like they say: what happens in Vegas, makes the front page news. Or something like that.
In celebration of her 40th birthday, Cannon whisked Carey away to Barbados via their very own private jet. Along with some typical beach-side fun, Cannon also planned a private dinner party for his wife at Barbados’ ritzy Whispers on the Bay restaurant Friday, filling the place with hundreds of pink and lavender-hued balloons. Sweet, sweet fantasy, baby.
Though any date with the devilishly handsome Clooney is crazy enough in itself, Keibler was lucky enough to join him on Lake Como in Lombardy, Italy this month along with fellow boat enthusiasts Cindy Crawford and her husband, Rande Gerber. Sometimes life just isn’t fair to us regular folk.
Aniston and Theroux made the most of their romantic getaway to the City of Lights by grabbing a bite to eat at one of Paris’ most prominent landmarks: the Eiffel Tower. C’est magnifque.
