In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Bruno Mars kills it on SNL and Justin Timberlake didn’t invite N*Sync members Joey Fatone or Lance Bass to this wedding.
HIT: Bruno Mars on SNL
Unless you’re Justin Timberlake, having a musical guest also double as a host is a very risky move. Luckily, the writers were on their game this weekend as Bruno Mars capitalized on his singing skills in the Pandora sketch. Unfortunately, that sketch isn’t available online because of multiple copyrights attached the songs he sang (including Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend). If you do find it, treasure that moment forever. It’s a pretty great.
MISS: Justin Timberlake reportedly banned one half of N*Sync from his wedding
Speaking of Justin Timberlake, Celebs like Jimmy Fallon and Andy Samburg were just two out of 100 wedding guests at his wedding in Italy. You know who wasn’t there? Lance Bass and Joey Fantone. According to Us Weekly fodder, “Justin hates Lance now.” Well, you know what Timberlake? Boo you for not wanting the greatest boy band in the world in reunite. BOO YOU (as in displeasure, not in a ghoulish scream)!
HIT: Armie Hammer is a prince in real life
Armie Hammer can now join the “Celebrities can be heroes, too” club after helping a car crash victim in L.A. According to model Leeann Tweeden (who can join the club, too because she also helped), Hammer helped an old lady out of her smashed-up car during rush hour. What rare breed Hammer is: his charming face matches his thoughtful personality.

It looks as though British beauty, Emma Watson, will be leaving the American university and transferring to another in the fall reports The New York Times. The actress, who is famed for her role as Hermione in the Harry Potter franchise, has been attending the American university since the fall of 2009.
Her spokesperson, Vanessa Davies, denied any reports that Watson was being bullied out of the prestigious school, saying instead she is choosing to leave to pursue courses not offered at the university.
Davies also added that the 21-year-old actress “has absolutely loved her time at Brown” and has made many good friends at the Providence, Rhode Island university.
In March, Watson posted on her official website that she would be taking time off from her studies to do promotion work for the final instalment of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
She wrote: “As you know, I love Brown and I love studying pretty much more than anything but recently I’ve had so much to juggle that being a student and fulfilling my other commitments has become a little impossible. I’ve decided to take a bit of time off to completely finish my work on Harry Potter… I will still be working towards my degree… it’s just going to take me a semester or two longer than I thought.”
The final installation, which is due out this summer, is undoubtedly an important focus for the newly 21-year-old actress. Though the Harry Potter series was Watson’s first big career break, the actress has since gone on to star in ad campaigns for the ever-iconic British label, Burberry, designed a fair trade fashion collection for top designer, Alberta Ferretti, and most recently, scored a coveted spot as the new face of luxury beauty brand, Lancome.
Though Davies did not make mention of which university Watson will be transferring to, something tells me that the decision won’t impact the young beauty’s flourishing career too much.
