Gabrielle Union's into Lin - but still roots for Heat

The Knicks secured another victory on Tuesday, and there's a chance actress Gabrielle Union was watching.

"I was looking at Sports Center, looking for Dwyane highlights and I saw these Jeremy Lin highlights, and then I hear the story," Union recalled.

Replay: Amber Riley's Whitney Houston cover on 'Glee'

"Glee" was already planning to cover Whitney Houston on Tuesday's episode - the show's first time doing so, star Matthew Morrison told CNN - but the performance has since also turned into a tribute.

Keeping in tune with Valentine's Day, the episode featured plenty of love songs, and Amber Riley's character Mercedes ended up belting out "I Will Always Love You" to her love interest/ex, Sam.

The song was pre-planned, and when news broke of Houston's death Saturday, Riley, after expressing her shock, added in a tweet that she was glad to have the opportunity to pay tribute to the singer.

Justin Bieber gives child battling cancer dream date

If you still weren't feeling the love on Valentine's Day, this story should help: Six-year-old Avalanna Routh, who is battling cancer, got the chance to meet her dream date, none other than pop star Justin Bieber.

Routh has a rare form of brain cancer called AT/RT, the New York Daily News reports. Last year, the nurses at the 6-year-old's Boston treatment center threw her a pretend wedding in which she "married" a cutout of the 17-year-old pop star.

Thanks to a Facebook page called "Get Avalanna to Meet Justin Bieber," the young singer learned that he had a special super-fan out in Massachusetts.

Adele: Five years off? More like five days

Adele mentioned in the March issue of Vogue that she wants to take "four or five years" off, but the singer seems to have amended that to five days.

In a bubbly blog post on her site - titled "5 was my favourite number but now it's 6" - the 23-year-old relishes her six wins at the Grammys on Sunday.

"I'm absolutely flabbergasted! In between laughing my head off, welling up, needing to sit down and trying to maintain an open fire...I keep having flashbacks to Sunday night," she writes. "The most incredible night of my life."

Amanda Seyfried talks 'Les Mis,' 'Lovelace'

Allow Amanda Seyfried to clear her throat - the actress is busily warming up for her role as Cosette in Tom Hooper's "Les Miserables" adaptation.

Seyfried, who showcased some of her vocals in 2008's "Mamma Mia!" said the key to training for a musical movie is to not rest one's voice, but rather to never stop singing.

"You just continue to train your voice," she told CNN. "You go to the doctor a lot and you stay away from dairy. That's all I can do right now. I know all my songs like the back of my hand."
