Following Monday’s dental work, Behati posted a video on Instagram of the two lying in bed together.  Adam makes a funny face as Behati cuddles a teddy bear. “My nurse is the perfect combination of sexy and cute,” the model captions the video.

Backstreet Boy Nick Carter Confirmed for ABC's "Dancing with the Stars"

After turning down the offer for the past four years, Backstreet Boy Nick Carter is finally taking the plunge: he'll be part of the cast of ABC's Dancing with the Stars season 21. He tells US Weekly magazine that his buddy Joey Fatone of 'N SYNC talked him into it.  Joey competed on the show in seasons four and 15.  "He talks about it all the time and I was really debating if I wanted to do it, and he said, 'It's a great experience, it keeps you in shape and it'll teach you a lot of stuff,'" Nick said…

Nick Jonas Named Music Curator for 2016 Miss America Competition

Nick Jonas is adding another gig to his already-packed schedule. The singer will serve as the official music curator for the 2016 Miss America Competition. That means Nick will personally select the music that will accompany the swimsuit and evening gown portions of the ceremony. He will also give commentary throughout the evening on his music selections, including why he chose each song. We'd say Nick probably knows a thing or two about pageants, since his ex-girlfriend, Olivia Culpo, is a former Miss USA and former Miss Universe.  In fact, Nick's hit "Jealous" was inspired by one night when he…

"I think for the most part it’s open to interpretation," Diplo tells ABC Radio. "The song is about love and how you lost somebody, and how it changed.
