It looks like TAYLOR SWIFT and CALVIN HARRIS are officially a couple after they were caught on camera holding hands at a Kenny Chesney concert in Nashville Thursday night. Pictures also showed Harris wrapping his arm around Swift's waist. Neither have yet to confirm or deny, but a supposed insider says of Harris, "He is such a good guy. He's serious but also very goofy at the same time. She really likes that combination. It's exciting for both of them. It's hard to meet someone in their business." They first met at the Brit Awards back in February and they've also supposedly been having secret meet ups in L.A. Ironically, earlier this month Harris said of Taylor on a British radio show, "She looks lovely but she's the opposite of my type." However, after getting to know Taylor through her pals, the Haim sisters, he had a change of opinion.

East Butler, Pennsylvania's Brent Henry went to a friend's house, but it wasn't for a visit. Henry allegedly used a credit card to jimmy open the garage door of his friend's mobile home. Unfortunately, he didn't do so very quietly because his friend heard noises and got up to investigate and Henry ran away. Henry might've gotten away with his little caper had he not left his credit card behind at the crime scene. Henry later told arresting officers he planned to take some gas for another friend's car, but didn't explain why he didn't just use the credit card to buy some.
