Finally a random celebrity couple to get excited about.
The Met Gala notoriously gave us the short-lived Hiddleswift, and most recently the debut of Grimes and Elon Musk and the (maybe) rogue debut of Emma Stone and Justin Theroux. Do you notice a pattern here?
Nick Jonas, 25, and Priyanka Chopra, 35, are the hot rando couple we’ve been waiting for. FINALLY an age gap that doesn’t make me want to barf.
A source and definitely not one of their publicists whispered to US Weekly, "They are dating and it’s brand new. It’s a good match and they are both interested in each other."
They were spotted spooning on a boat with some D-listers over Memorial Day weekend. Then they attended Beauty and the Beast Live at the Hollywood Bowl and a day after went to an LA Dodgers game. Sounds like rich couple-y sh-t to me.
They were first photographed on the red carpet at last year’s Met Gala. Chopra told Jimmy Kimmel it was friendly and definitely not a pre-game for an adult sleepover: "Yeah, we were on the same table and we already know each other. So he was like 'Hey, you wanna go together?' And I was like, 'Yeah, okay, let’s go together.' It ended up working out."
So these two are as romantic and strategic as two high schoolers going to homecoming.
When Chopra attended her longtime friend, Meghan Markle’s wedding two weeks ago, I expected her to hook up with a hot duke or something. But this is so much better.
Nick, the only Jonas brother I care about, has great taste in cougars. Remember when he had a fling with Kate Hudson? Then last week he left a thirsty comment on Jenna Dewan’s Instagram, which made the Internet horny for some Nickenna action.
Do I think it’ll last? Please. I’m gunning for a beautiful summer hookup, á la Michelle Rodriguez and Zac Efron. I really appreciate Nick parlaying his Disney fame into an acting and popstar career. While Joe has been riding his girlfriends’ coattails and Kevin has resorted to live tweeting his child’s birth to get those laundry detergent checks, Nick has been doing comparatively well. He’s really blossomed ever since leaving that virginity ring behind. NICK, YOU’RE DOING AMAZING SWEETIE.
