Nick Jonas' new video co-star? The "Bonus Jonas"

Kevin WongBack in the days of the Jonas Brothers, fans used to refer to the youngest brother Frankie, who wasn't in the group, as the "Bonus Jonas." Well, now Frankie's back...as the guest star in big bro Nick's new video.

The clip is for "Remember I Told You," Nick Jonas' collaboration with Mike Posner and British singer Anne-Marie, who sings lead on Clean Bandit's hit "Rockabye."  It shows Nick, Mike and Anne-Marie dancing around in a small, empty white room, where they're joined on and off by various dancers, and by Frankie, who's playing guitar. 

The three singers dance around and do goofy things like ride around in shopping carts and cover each other in packing peanuts, as the clip switches from black-and-white to color.  In a behind-the-scenes video, Nick says he wanted a "clean and sexy" look to match the simple beat of the track.

Mike and Nick first wrote "Remember I Told You" when Mike was opening for Nick and Demi Lovato on their joint tour. Nick then discovered Anne-Marie's music during a trip to the U.K. and asked her to join them on the track.

Taylor Swift recalls how she taught NBA MVP Russell Westbrook how to dribble

Jason Merritt/Getty Images via ABCTaylor Swift turns up in the oddest places.

Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook has been named this year's NBA MVP, and his teammates tweeted out a special congratulatory video, starring none other than Tay-Tay, who's been largely absent from both social media and the spotlight for months.

"Ah, Russell, it's Taylor. Remember? I was the one who taught you how to play basketball," Taylor says in the video. "I was the one who taught you to dribble...and I remember the first time you beat me at basketball and I was very upset. And you said, if you remember correctly...‘You just have to shake it off,’ and I got an idea. So, essentially, we have each other to thank for these careers."

She goes on to say that she and Russell "go back, what, 20 years?" before correcting herself.

"Actually, we've never met and that's a fake story but I wish it were the truth," she says. "And you are amazing. You’re the MVP. I’m so happy for you. Sending you the biggest hug ever. Congratulations!"

As for why Taylor was tapped to record the video, Westbrook is a fan: he once Instagrammed himself jamming to her hit "Bad Blood."

Mariah Carey questioned about ex-fiancé on Israeli news show

ABC/Randy HolmesMariah Carey is currently in Israel promoting her collaboration with Israeli skincare line Premier Dead Sea Cosmetics, which she wrote about on Twitter.  

But during a interview with Israel's Channel 2 News, the singer was asked less about that, and more about ex-fiancé Australian billionaire James Packer and his ties to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  

In a video of the exchange, Mimi is asked if she noticed a "special connection" between James and Netanyahu while the three of them had dinner in the past.  

She curtly replies, "I was eating the food. They had some food there that was pretty good. I don't know. I was just there 'cause I was invited to a dinner. There was a lot of talk, conversation, food. Dinner."  

When the interviewer continues to press the issue, asking if she knew where Packer could possibly be at the moment, she says, "I don't know where the m*********** is! How am I supposed to know? I don't know. For real."  

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mimi's former lover and Netanyahu are friends. Packer is currently wanted for questioning by Israeli police "as part of an ongoing investigation regarding alleged corruption and illegal gift giving to Netanyahu by several wealthy businessmen." 

Mariah broke off her engagement to James last year.
