We've kept our eye out for all the biggest rumours of the day and served up all the juicy gossip right here...

1. Will Justin Timberlake host the next Oscars?

Justin Timberlake is apparently in consideration to host the 2014 Academy Awards.

There has been no official news about next year's Oscars, other than the fact 2013 host Seth MacFarlane has said he will not be hosting the awards again and Tina Fey has shot down reports that she's in the runnning.

According to the National Enquirer, sources claim that Justin is high on Oscars organisers' list to host next year due to his musical talent and comedy hits from appearing on Saturday Night Live.

The source said, "Getting Justin to host would now be a huge coup for the Oscars. He'd been considered before, but they always thought he was too young and not seasoned enough.

"Now, he's the frontrunner for the job - after showing he knows how to sing, dance, host, and improvise on the spot."

A Justin insider told Gossip Cop that the Oscars rumours are "premature" because no producers have been selected yet for next year's telecast.

2. Did John Mayer and Katy Perry split because of his tour?

John Mayer has announced his first solo tour in three years, just days after allegedly splitting from Katy Perry.

The singer planning on hitting the road alongside American Idol winner Phillip Phillips.

The 35 year old was ordered to stop performing due to a throat problem, but now that it has healed it seems that John feels the time is right to hit the road.

Speaking to Billboard magazine, John said, "The greatest gift I have in my life is the opportunity to play again, which is also the opportunity to dream again."

He continued, "My dreams were in escrow, but when I found out this thing in my throat had receded, the most exciting thing for me was having a second chance at a new life."

"My dreams have come true twice. That's really cool."

Sources say the tour could have been a factor for the split as the couple struggled with upcoming work pressures.

Speaking to the Mail Online, a source said, "it's sad," but suggested it may not be a permanent end for the two singers.

"It's not over until it's over. You have to see how things play out."

Another source claimed, "She's leaving the window open. They have both been so focused on work."

3. Amanda Byrnes wants a rapper to murder her vagina?

Amanda Bynes made it known how much she finds Drake attractive on Twitter.

The actress tweeted to her followers, "I want @Drake to murder my vagina."

The message has since been retweeted over 14,500 times and favourited over 7,500 times.

The rapper, who has been linked with Rihanna in the past, hasn't replied to the post yet.

Amanda has history with rappers after dating Kanye West prodigy Kid Cudi before they reportedly split due to the actress sharing too much information about their relationship online.

She tweeted in 2010, "It's amazing how good it feels when someone knows how to love your body! I am having withdrawals from a certain guy.

"So turns out i prefer chocolate over vanilla. interesting."
