Nick Jonas and Selena Gomez: The Controversial Photo

July 24, 2008 12:50 PM ET

There's a small controversy brewing over a photo accompanying Rolling Stone's new cover story on the Jonas Brothers. In the piece, Jason Gay writes of a backstage incident where the magazine's photographer snapped a shot of the band that got their publicist quite anxious. The photo in question? A pic of Nick, Joe, Kevin and new Disney Channel star Selena Gomez (i.e. the next Miley Cyrus) with her arm around Nick (who previously dated Cyrus). Today Gomez issued a statement denying she's seeing the youngest Jonas, saying she'd prefer a romance with Shia LaBeouf, but a source tells Us Weekly they've been an item for several months.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
