Nick Jonas Delivers Booze and Music to Strangers

"IS THIS LIFE?????"

Nick Jonas, one-time JoBro and man of a thousand abs, made a very special house call when he “hijacked” the alcohol delivery app Saucey in Los Angeles – not just bringing booze to a bunch of unsuspecting people, but then playing them some music.

“He did ‘Jealous’ and ‘Chains’ and everyone sang along. Everyone was so excited and he served each customer their first drink when they got in the room before he played,” a source tells PEOPLE.

Or as some of those same house guests said on Instagram: “Nick Jonas just casually playing ‘Jealous’ for me. After we shared a bottle of wine. IS THIS LIFE????? Thank you Saucey, Nick, and the universe.”

Speechless. Nick Jonas in our apartment, delivering me wine and singing me songs. My life has been made.

So how did this come to be?

“This was unplanned,” a rep for Saucey tells PEOPLE. “Nick is an investor in Saucey and wanted to meet some of the customers.”

Next, the 22-year-old will host Saturday’s Kids’ Choice Awards. And he can’t wait to get slimed.

Look at Miley Cyrus in Love With Her Pet Pig

Meet Bubba Sue the pig

We already knew Miley Cyrus loved her pet pig Bubba Sue – and now we know just how much.

Cyrus, 22, spent a recent sunny day in her Los Angeles home with her pig and several other friends, all of which she documented on Instagram. Activities included: kissing her pig, chasing her with brushes and admiring her face in the sunlight.

Cyrus first adopted Bubba Sue back in August following the death of one of her beloved dogs.

Here are the highlights from their day:

The videos do confirm that Bubba Sue’s hooves are still bright red, which means Cyrus wasn’t fazed by last November’s pedicure incident.

Vin Diesel Spent His Childhood in an Artists’ Commune

Scott Garfield—Universal

But his old stomping ground of the West Village was a lot grittier back then

For a guy whose career has been built on the impressive circumference of his biceps, speed of his drawl and pack of his punch, Vin Diesel’s childhood was surprisingly artistic. He grew up surrounded by painters, writers and performers in the first ever federally supported housing complex specifically for artists.

Westbeth, located in New York City’s West Village, is a cluster of old industrial buildings that formerly housed Bell Laboratories. The building has a quite a history: it was where the first talking movie, TV broadcast, and binary computer were demonstrated. But Bell Labs moved out and in 1970, was replaced by 383 units of loft-style affordable housing and studio space for artists designed by a young Richard Meier.

To live in one of the apartments, potential residents had to prove they were both poor and working artists. (Their art was judged by a committee.) As a result, the place was crawling with creativity. The dance pioneer Merce Cunningham had studio space there, Miles Davis played at a friend’s apartment at Westbeth, and photographer Diane Arbus lived there—and, alas, died there, when she committed suicide in 1971.

Mark Vincent, as Diesel was then known, grew up there with his twin brother Paul, because his stepfather (he never knew his biological dad) was an avant-garde theater director, who later worked in TV and film education. His mom, Diesel says, was an astrologer. “It was an artist community, everyone was expressing themselves,” says Diesel, who is profiled in TIME this week. “Great painters, poets, sculptors, musicians and thespians all lived in this building. It was kind of a mecca for artists. What a magical place for a young artist to grow up in.”

Other kids who grew up in the building remember Diesel, or Mark Vincent as he was then known, being the kind of brotherly big dog that he plays in the Furious 7, the latest in The Fast and the Furious series. He would scurry around the former industrial complex with a gang of other little kids, getting into mischief. “He was definitely one of the ringleaders or alphas,” says Adam Davidson, a financial journalist who also grew up in the complex “I was younger and Mark would encourage us to go to parts of the building that were a little scary.”

Not surprisingly, the place was fantastically progressive. Davidson remember being shocked when he got to college in the ’80s to discover interracial marriage and homosexuality were frowned on in some circles. Equally unsurprisingly, families who moved into the complex rarely moved out. The once-gritty industrial neighborhood is now one of Manhattan’s swankiest. And yep, Diesel’s parents still live there.

Watch Jimmy Fallon’s Mitt Romney Impression on The Tonight Show

It's not too bad

When you think of Saturday Night Live alumni doing impressions of GOP candidates, Jimmy Fallon typically isn’t the first name that comes to mind.

But the Tonight Show host turned in a passable impression of Mitt Romney Wednesday night when the former presidential candidate appeared on Fallon’s show.

The segment’s conceit is a loose one. Romney, 68, is psyching himself up in the mirror before his interview, and Fallon is playing his reflection. Fallon has fun with some of Romney’s mannerisms, including his oddly intoned laugh, and Romney proves a great sport throughout.

Later on, during the actual interview, Romney revealed some details on his upcoming charity boxing match with Evander Holyfield (“It’s gonna be a very quick bout,” Romney joked). Aside from discussing the charity that the fight will benefit, he showed a clip of his 2-year-old grandson Winston “training” him for the fight.

Taking on Holyfield might be kind of easy after standing up to that kind of abuse.

Watch Ed Sheeran Surprise a Couple at Their Wedding

And then sing "Thinking Out Loud" for their first dance

Ed Sheeran continued his streak of doing adorable and sweet things by making a surprise appearance at an Australian couple’s wedding.

The couple, Kya and Matt, had won an all-expenses-paid wedding from Sydney’s KIIS FM after Matt called in to explain the couple’s situation. They’d been planning to get married, but after Kya’s mother took her own life they had to postpone the event. Since then, they’ve been struggling to get enough money together.

The wedding KIIS FM planned for Kya and Matt included a special appearance by Ed Sheeran, who’s currently touring in Australia. He surprised the couple and then sang his hit “Thinking Out Loud” for their first dance.

It was all really adorable and then Ed wished them well with some parting words: “Make lots of babies tonight.”

See the Hilariously Dirty Look Sarah Jessica Parker Shot Tom Hanks at a Hockey Game

Try to guess what Hanks said to merit such side-eye

Sarah Jessica Parker — who turns 50 today, so HBD, SJP — was spotted at a New York Rangers game Tuesday night seated right behind Tom Hanks. Most people would be delighted to be just inches from such a national treasure, but Parker seemed, uh, less than thrilled:

It’s unclear what Hanks is saying, but it looks like it ends with, “What’s the matter with you?” Maybe he was like, “Why would you star in a show about four ladies navigating their way through life and love in New York? What’s the matter with you?”

Either way, this Vine is an instant classic.

Update: Sarah Jessica Parker cleared things up in a statement to TIME: “We were all pretend fighting about them being Kings fans and us being Rangers fans. I adore Tom and Rita.”

Here’s the Real Reason the Villanova Piccolo Player Sobbed on National TV

She also got to play with The Roots

On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Monday night, the late-night host interviewed the young woman who became a meme over the weekend when a Jumbotron caught her crying while playing the piccolo after NC State defeated Villanova in the March Madness tournament.

“My dad was at the game, and I didn’t want him to see me crying, but then it turned into, like, everyone saw me crying,” Roxanne Chalifoux said, prompting Fallon to burst out laughing.

But the point of the segment was not only to laugh at Chalifoux, but also to let her play the piccolo with the Roots and give her a goodie bag of ice cream for her dorm and two tickets to Taylor Swift’s world tour (which Fallon claimed was a gift from the pop star herself).

Shailene Woodley Still Adamant She’s Not a Feminist

"To me it’s still a label"

Shailene Woodley still doesn’t consider herself a feminist.

Last year, Woodley told TIME she was against the use of the term as “I love men, and I think the idea of ‘raise women to power, take the men away from the power’ is never going to work out because you need balance…My biggest thing is really sisterhood more than feminism.” Promoting her latest film Insurgent, 23-year-old Woodley posed for NYLON’s April cover and elaborated on her evolving thoughts on feminism:

“The reason why I don’t like to say that I am a feminist or I am not a feminist is because to me it’s still a label. I do not want to be defined by one thing. Why do we have to have that label to divide us? We should all be able to embrace one another regardless of our belief system and regardless of the labels that we have put upon ourselves.”

She also objects to the media scrutiny of everything she says. “I mean, if we spent as much energy focusing on the genocide that’s going on right now in parts of Africa as we spent on that one article, think about what we could accomplish,” she said, although it was not immediately clear from NYLON’s excerpt to which article she was referring. “Change is not going to come from focusing on the small things that actors say.”
