According to The Hollywood Reporter, John states in his complaint, filed Tuesday in California, that Robert Maron, a watch broker, began selling him watches in 2007.

Jason Derulo Says On the Radio, His Latest Hit "Sticks Out Like a Sore Thumb" -- in a Good Way

Jason Derulo's current single "Talk Dirty" has become one of the biggest hits of his career.  One reason may be that it has a unique, vaguely Middle-Eastern kind of sound that makes it stand out from the rest of the music on the radio right now, and Jason says that was exactly the idea. "I really wanna create some stuff that didn't fit within the mold," Jason says of his current musical goals. "So when you hear 'Talk Dirty' on the radio, I mean, it sticks out like a sore thumb. And that just comes from experimentation, man. I kinda…

Pink, an animal rights activist who is a long-time supporter of the movement to get horse-drawn carriages removed from the streets of New York City, has thrown her support behind a plan by the city's new mayor to do just that.  She's even willing to adopt one of the horses if it ends up losing its job. In a letter posted on PETA's website, Pink praises New York mayor Bill de Blasio for his plan to phase out "inhumane" horse carriages and replace them with vintage cars fitted with electric motors.  Pink says the plan will "provide solid jobs for…

Ryan Tedder Says If He Gets Too Famous, He's "Done"

OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder may be the lead singer of a hit-making band, as well as the writer of smash singles by Beyonce, Adele and Kelly Clarkson, but he's not exactly a paparazzi target.  In fact, when he's out and about, he doesn't get recognized much at all, and that's good -- because he says if he gets too famous, he'll quit the business. Speaking to Billboard from the road, for the publication's new cover story, Ryan says, "I don't get hounded, I don't get chased, I don't usually travel with security, and I still feel relatively like a normal person.…
