Did You Hear?

:: Sam Smith made the most of the Australian summer by taking a relaxing dip with boyfriend Jonathan Zeizel. The “Stay With Me” crooner rocked blue shorts as he splashed around Sydney’s Manly beach. Hopefully, he wore sunscreen to protect that pale English skin! [Daily Mail]

:: This is disturbing and exciting in equal measure. Michael Jackson‘s oldest son, Prince Jackson, reportedly hit the recording studio with Justin Bieber. While it will be interesting to see if the 17-year-old inherited his father’s talent, the Canadian superstar can’t be the best influence on an impressionable teenager. [Page Six]

:: Speaking of Justin, the 20-year-old recently broke his ankle. He didn’t reveal when or how it happened, but it could have something to do with his penchant for skateboarding in oversized shorts. Biebs did, however, post a pic of his injury on Facebook. [Pink Is The New Blog].

:: Kid Rock penned an op-ed for The Guardian and shared his views on politics. The rock star/ordained minister isn’t opposed to same sex marriage but says he’s not looking forward to marrying gay couples. (That doesn’t make a lot of sense). He also has some harsh words for Barack Obama and the rap/rock movement he pioneered. [Vulture]
