Kendall Jenner: Harry Styles & I Are 'Cool'

Originally posted 11/24/2013 08:25PM

Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles sparked relationship rumors this past week when they were spotted sharing a meal in West Hollywood. But a few days after their eyebrow-raising meal the duo are speaking out separately, and hinting that things are platonic – for now.

"We're friends. He's cool, yeah, he's cool," Kendall told E's Guiliana Rancic Sunday on the American Music Awards red carpet while standing beside younger sister Kylie.

"It's very hard to have friends of the opposite sex," Kylie chimed in a few moments later.

"You go out with one person, you're automatically dating them," Kendall, 18, added.

Lady Gaga vs. Miley Cyrus: Who Will Be the Most Shocking Performer at the AMAs?

Get your DVRs ready because you're going to want to hit rewind when performers including Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus take the stage at the 2013 American Music Awards on Sunday.

While Katy Perry is kicking off the night with her new single "Unconditionally," and Justin Timberlake, Ariana Grande, One Direction and Christina Aguilera will also be performing, we have a feeling that Gaga and Cyrus will steal the show with their over-the-top performances.

Meat dresses, seashell bras, burning pianos and fake blood, foam fingers, barely there bikinis, latex-clothed little people … we're wondering how they're going to top their previous awards show performances, but Gaga, who'll be singing "Do What U Want" with R. Kelly, gave a hint of what's to come.

Liam Payne Finds It 'Quite Strange' to Be Back on The X Factor

Originally posted 11/21/2013 02:15PM

It feels good to be back – and a little odd.

One Direction will perform on Thursday's X Factor, but band member Liam Payne says the experience obviously differs from when they headed to the top on the U.K. version of the hit competition series.

"It's quite strange being back on X Factor because you kind of know what the contestants go through and know what to expect next also," Payne told PEOPLE backstage after Wednesday night's show. "You know all the emotions they're going through."

With a baby on the way, X Factor mentor Simon Cowell declared that he was quitting smoking, but in his own words: "I lied."

Claiming electronic cigarettes "don't work," the music mogul eagerly pulled out a pack of cigarettes to light up after taping an episode of his Fox singing competition on Thursday.

"There are a lot of boring things that happen when you have a baby," Cowell, 54, told reporters with a cheeky smile. "[You have to get rid of] sharp edges, cigarettes, alcohol … then there's [baby-proofing] the toilet. But I'll have a smoking room!"

Look out, John Mayer. Despite her vows to the contrary, it seems Katy Perry went and got engaged to someone else – a One Direction singer, no less!

Well, not really, but Perry and Niall Horan joked this week that they got engaged after meeting up in Japan, with Horan posting an Instagram selfie of the pair looking quite cozy.

"She said yes! It's happening! Haha," wrote the 20-year-old Irishman.
