One quick bite to eat, then he's headed back to the English department to grade some papers.
Whether it served to mourn Whitney Houston or restrict her facial expressions knowing she'd be losing every category to Adele, that black veil stayed in place all night.
Oh, Katy. That's not how you make an exâwho's likely sitting at home watchingâjealous. See your pal Rihanna for further instruction.
