Katy Perry's friends are saying she is "addicted" to John Mayer.
The couple got back together just two weeks after Katy dumped John. She had a change of heart and went begging him to take her back.
A source told the National Enquirer: "After they split, Katy had a change of heart and started bombarding John with phone calls, texts and e-mails, begging him to get back together. Katy has been drowning her sorrows in a sea of booze and partying. It's inconceivable that she would take John back, but she's very vulnerable right now."
"Katy has spectacularly bad taste in men, and to her John is the coolest guy around. But the next time he crushes her heart – which is bound to happen soon – it could have devastating consequences for her, both personally and professionally."
"The X Factor"'s second season kicked off last night, showcasing new judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato. The pop duo join returning judges Simon Cowell and LA Reid.
Auditions got underway in Austin, Texas. The show opened strong with 21-year-old Paige Thomas, who wowed the judges with her powerhouse voice, rock star ensemble and 3-year-old daughter.
New to this year's format is a behind-the-scenes storyline, which aims to showcase the so-called "bitchiness," according to Cowell, that seems to go on backstage. Audiences not only see the judges banter back and forth between takes, but they also witness 22-year-old contestant Kaci Newton make faces and snide comments about her competition from behind the curtain.
13-year-old Reed Dennings barely scraped through to the next round on charm.

"Have you ever watched yourself on stage? You turn into a raving lunatic" – Simon Cowell
"There used to be boybands years ago, there's five of them, and there's always one that doesn't sing. That's you." – Simon Cowell
"Do you like animals? If I were you, I'd go out and buy a puppy and make this a happy day for yourself because the singing was awful" – Simon Cowell

" The Voice" returned with its season three premiere, featuring a collection of blind auditions and a group performance by the coaches.

The blind auditions then get started.
Song: "Teenage Wasteland"
Coaches Who Turn Their Chairs: Green, Levine, Shelton
The Scottish rocker chooses Shelton as his coach.

Song: "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?"
Coaches Who Turn Their Chairs: None
The 16-year-old, a son of a musician, doesn't quite have the skills that the coaches are looking for. It's tough to see him break down on stage, but the coaches try to encourage him to keep working on his voice.
Song: "Ain't No Other Man"

Coaches Who Turn Their Chairs: Shelton, Levine
The 24-year-old singer, whose band was dropped from its label, chooses Levine.

Even though the significant others are BFF's, Beyonce is not actually a huge fan of Kim Kardashian… but you wouldn't know it in public. They're not the only ones faking a friendship for the cameras. Here are nine other celebs that appear to be pals, but actually kinda hate each other:
Christina Aguilera wants the world to know she loves her curves.
In a new interview with Lucky magazine, she said: "Actually, the challenge I've always had is being too thin, so I love that now I have a booty, and obviously I love showing my cleavage. Hey, if you can work it and you can own it, that confidence is going to shine through."
"When you're young, it's so easy to get bull-dozed. There were these two ladies who worked at the record label who always wanted to come to fittings and dress me up like a Barbie doll. It was disgusting."
