In Pursuit Of Perry
Orlando Bloom locked onto Katy Perry just minutes after her arrival at the Weinstein Company's Golden Globes afterparty in Beverly Hills on Jan. 10. The actor was flirting with actress Rooney Mara at the soiree, until he saw Perry join movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's corner table, which was surrounded by bodyguards and black rope. Bloom, who was sipping Fiji water (which sponsored the event), made a beeline for the VIP enclosure and soon was exchanging digits with the "Firework" singer and puffing on her vapor cigarette. When Perry headed for the exit, the pop star -- who was photographed with intermittent beau John Mayer on New Year's Eve -- kept looking back to make sure Bloom was following. He was.

Madonna Misses Rocco At Penn Party
Sean Penn was clearly on Madonna's mind at her ex-husband's Help Haiti Home benefit in Beverly Hills on Jan. 9, and so was her son Rocco Ritchie. Partygoers who listened closely to the singer's speech -- in which she said, "Sean ... I love you, from the first moment I laid eyes on you, and I still love you just the same" -- also noted that Madonna wistfully recalled the time she "went to Haiti with Sean and my son Rocco and we had such an amazing adventure." Madonna, who's engaged in a custody battle over Rocco with ex No. 2, director Guy Ritchie, attended the event with two of her children, David and Mercy.
