When a production benefits the Bulgarian economy as much as "Getaway" apparently did, it might seem mean-spirited to knock it. And when its wall-to-wall car stunts are the real, metal-on-metal deal, shot in the streets of the capital city, that's worth noting.

Followers of celebrity gossip have seen a lot of Selena Gomez's driveway over the last few months. Located off a winding residential street in Tarzana, it's where paparazzi have snapped countless pictures of the former Disney Channel star and where her on-again/off-again boyfriend, Justin Bieber, was photographed one night after a reported argument between the two tween idols at a restaurant in Encino.

And though her swimsuit may be two-piece, she herself is single, she confirmed to a Boston radio station last Friday while promoting her upcoming world tour and single "Come & Get It. " PHOTOS: Celebrity splits of 2013 Appearing to be talking around a possible don't-discuss-Justin-Bieber ground rule, the DJ asked her, "So sometimes you may see a boy walking down the street and he says, 'Let's grab a ice-cream' - you're available?"

Selena Gomez's bindi - the sparkly gems she wore during the MTV Movie Awards Sunday - is offending Hindu groups. The actress-singer wore the Hindu symbol on her forehead during her sultry "Come and Get It" performance at the awards show and again during a televised performance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," which was taped Monday. (She gushed on "Ellen" about meeting Brad Pitt before the performance Sunday, but that's another story.)
