Shia LaBeouf has a thing for his Transformers co-stars. The actor revealed that he had relationships with Megan Fox (during the first Transformers) and Isabel Lucas during the second installment of the robot-flick. Interestingly, both women were supposedly in relationships at the time. LaBeouf revealed the details about the secret relationship in an interview with Details magazine. When asked by the magazine “if he hooked up with Megan Fox,” LaBeouf responded by nodding affirmatively and saying, “Look, you’re on the set for six months, with someone who’s rooting to be attracted to you, and you’re rooting to be attracted to them. I never understood the separation of work and life in that situation. But the time I spent with Megan was our own thing, and I think you can see the chemistry onscreen.” LaBeouf was unsure whether Fox was on a break from longtime boyfriend (and now husband) Brian Austin Green at the time.

Science Says Ovulation Aids a Woman’s “Gaydar”

A new study shows that women who are ovulating are more likely to know instinctively if a man is gay. The study was conducted by Nicholas Rule, an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, and involved 40 female Tufts undergraduates who were heterosexual and ovulating. The women were first shown 80 images of men’s faces, half which belonged to gay males. Those women nearest to peak ovulation were found to be more accurate at “sussing out who's gay and who's not just by looking at a man's face.” Rule says, “The closer you get to peak ovulation, accuracy goes up, up, up, peaks at ovulation, then starts to go back down again. There is a linear effect.” It would seem that women’s brains really are “evolutionarily primed for mating during ovulation.” [TIME]

Katy Perry on Course to Hit Michael Jackson's Billboard Record

If Katy Perry’s newest pop ditty “Last Friday Night (TGIF)” hits the top spot on the US Billboard Hot 100 charts it will mark her fifth number one single from the same album and place her in some very iconic company. Michael Jackson was the last artist to pull this off back in 1987 with his Bad LP. If she reaches this mind-blowing goal, Perry will also be the only female to hit the mark in the 52-year history of The Billboard Hot 100. The other Teenage Dream singles that cracked the top spot were “California Gurls,” “Firework,” “E.T.,” and of course “Teenage Dream.” Even though “Last Friday Night (TGIF)” is now sitting at number 4 on the charts, it’s looking like it could be the queen of the heap by next week.

Tyler, The Creator Predicts His Own Death

In a recent interview with Q, Odd Future mastermind Tyler, The Creator surprisingly told the mag that he expects to be dead by the age of 40 and even knows how it’ll all go down. "Either an obsessed fan or heroin overdose. I'll probably get into that at 24," he said. Tyler also chatted about a recent Tweet that ruffled a few feathers. "I got into an argument because I said the Columbine [shooters] were probably really cool people… I wasn't saying what they did was right," Tyler said. This kid is punk rock personified. [NME]
