Michael Phelps Has a Girlfriend. And, apparently, he’s not embarrassed to bring her out in public (anymore). The greatest Olympian of all time met the model/cocktail waitress back in January. She is up on the Twitters a lot now, too. Oh, and she’s an Aries. [Gawker]

Barbra Streisand Opens in Philly. Barbra Streisand is at it again and this time the 70-year-old songstress will open her tour in Philly on October 8th. [Inquirer]

Taylor Swift’s Cat Watches the Olympics. It seems as though Taylor Swift’s cat isn’t much deterred by NBC’s tape delay because the singer tweeted a picture of her Scottish fold Meredith (yup, really) chillin’ on a bed and watching some track and field. [People]

Marvin Hamlisch, Dead at 68. Marvin Hamlisch—the composer of A Chorus Line—has passed away at the age of 68. Hamlisch had won Oscars, Grammys, Emmys, Tonys and a Pulitzer Prize over the course of his career. [E]

Philly Has a New Fresh Prince. Philly rapper Tone Trump is the self-proclaimed “New Fresh Prince” after naming his latest mixtape after Will Smith. You know how much he deserves the nickname because he had to give it to himself. [MTV]

Great Gatsby Pushed Back. Remember how jazzed (see what we did there?) everyone was when the trailer for Baz Luhrman’s The Great Gatsby dropped a few months back? Well, thanks for getting all excited. Now you’ll have to wait a full year to see it because Hollywood is cruel and wants to have all the monies you have in your pockets. [EW]
