Matthew Koma can call Carly Rae Jepsen at any time. Definitely.
That’s because the musician is dating the 26-year old Canadian star, as witnesses confirm to People Koma and Kepsen went public at the GetGlue HD Launch Party at the Standard, East Village in New York City this week.
“He introduced her as his girlfriend,” a source said of Koma. “He seemed really excited about it, and she was smiling from ear to ear by his side during the introduction. He seems like a really nice and personable guy.”

On Tuesday around midnight, according to TMZ, Rihanna pulled up at Ashton Kutcher’s house. A blurry pic of Rih in her SUV (with her security detail) was posted online as the celebrity gossip site claimed she stayed at his bachelor pad until 4 a.m.
Surprisingly, though, TMZ’s story has been taken down.
We can imagine that, whatever they were up to (and we’re guessing it wasn’t any sort of business collaboration) Ashton wouldn’t be thrilled about the story.
But what’s the harm, really? Did he threaten them to take the photos and/or the whole story down? And why would they comply if it wasMore >
