Baltimore Ravens cheerleader Courtney Lenz was not invited to perform at the Super Bowl, and she says it's because she gained too much weight. During the regular season, Courtney was actually benched for a game because she gained 1.6 to 1.8 pounds, bringing her up to a whopping 125.6 pounds. The team only gets to take 32 of its 60 cheerleaders. Courtney wasn't one of them, and she says her weight is the reason. The team denies it, saying, quote, "Our selection process was based upon three criteria: seniority, performance ability and personal conduct throughout the season."
Are Katy Perry and John Mayer on a break? They were both allegedly spotted with other people recently. On Sunday night, Katy went to see Muse in concert then headed for the after-party…and drummer Dominic Howard. A witness says, quote, "They were all over each other.” Another person said "Katy had her arms around Dominic, and they were facing each other, bodies touching. He had his eyes on her all night. Katy loved all the attention." Meanwhile, John was spotted at the Village Hotel with Allison Williams from “Girls". They attended a party at the hotel, then went to dinner, before returning to the hotel. They weren't seen again until the next morning, when they left…separately. But this one could very likely be innocent. John is good friends with Allison's boyfriend. Still…looks very suspicious!!

Lindsay Lohan and her mom Dina rushed to Los Angeles from New York on Tuesday, to get to Lindsay's court hearing yesterday morning. If you remember, she originally tried to bag on it, claiming she was SICK. But then TMZ posted pictures of her out and about in New York, NOT looking sick. They also said a WARRANT could be issued for Lindsay if she didn't show. And she did show…but she had trouble finding a place to stay on Tuesday night. Lindsay and her mom first went to a hotel called Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica. But they were turned away. Apparently, Lindsay's been on their blacklist since she trashed one of their rooms five years ago. Then they went to the Loews Hotel up the road, and were turned away there…but only because there were no rooms. There's no word where they ended up. Lindsay Lohan’s judge had some fun with her in court yesterday morning, telling her, quote, "I'm glad to see you're feeling better."
Meanwhile, Michael Lohan and his on-and-off girlfriend Kate Major welcomed a baby boy yesterday. They named him Landon Major Lohan.
