Jordin Sparks has a lot to smile about at the moment. Her first major movie Sparkle was just released in the US, and since winning American Idol in 2007 she has dropped a whopping 50 pounds. The singer and actress is also celebrating her one-year anniversary with her boyfriend, singer and songwriter Jason Derulo. And the pair have celebrated the milestone with a blissful sun-soaked vacation in the Bahamas. The lovebirds, both aged 22, were spotted last Monday relaxing on the white sandy beach and luxury pool at the Cove at the Atlantis resort on Paradise Island, where they met and fell in love one year earlier. Jordin showed off her newly toned beach body and various tattoos in a skimpy patterned strapless bikini while her beau flaunted his muscular physique in swim-shorts. The couple enjoyed the lazy river at the resort as well as the turquoise ocean. Jordin is clearly smitten with the handsome chart-topper. The two fitness fanatics were spotted engaging in some very open public displays of affection in the resort's pool and Jordin was also seen teaching Jason swim moves before cuddling and splashing around.

Perry and Mayer party at strip club until 5am
Katy Perry and John Mayer seem to have enjoyed a spot of dirty dancing in Las Vegas last weekend. And we're not talking about them reliving the schmaltzy romance of the film, but rather visiting a legendary strip club. The turbulent twosome joined a group of friends at Spearmint Rhino. "They were together in a group," an onlooker told People magazine. "As for whether they got dances, they were in a strip club ... you do the math." The magazine explained how Perry and Mayer checked into the Wynn Hotel together after she travelled to Nevada to be with him. He is thought to have already been in Sin City after being seen having dinner at Palm's N9NE Steakhouse with two friends last Friday. The pair were last seen partying together after MTV Video Music Awards.

Brown denies new tattoo is of Rihanna
Chris Brown has unveiled a new tattoo on his neck of what appears to be a woman's battered and bruised face. The 23-year-old singer put the ink on display during an event in Las Vegas earlier this month. The face structure, arched eyebrows and plump lips certainly bear a resemblance to Rihanna, and the design has eerie echoes of the shocking picture that emerged of the We Found Love singer after he brutally assaulted her in 2009. But sources close to Chris insist any similarities are purely coincidental, telling TMZ: "It's a random woman." The pair sparked rumours that they were rekindling their romance at the MTV VMAs last week after they were seen kissing and hugging. Rihanna, who touched down at LAX yesterday after a trip to London, opened up about her complicated feelings for her ex to Oprah Winfrey last month, calling him "the love of my life". She confirmed they still have a "very close friendship and added she felt sympathy for him in the wake of the infamous violent attack that left her in hospital. She explained: "I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help."
