Welcome to the Smart Set. Every morning we bring you the gossip coverage, filtered. Today: Prince Harry, currently on a goodwill tour of the Carribean, is said to very interested in landing a date with Katy Perry, Tim Tebow denies he'll be The Bachelor, while the creator of The Bachelor goes back to bachelorhood.
Prince Harry's week-long goodwill tour of Central America and the Caribbean continued yesterday in Jamaica. As you might expect, he had a terrific time. He met with fastest man alive Usain Bolt and defeated him in a good-natured race by blatantly cheating.
He didn't let the Bolt race stop him from showing up, as The Telegraph notes, in "blue suede shoes and beige trousers" at a charity event in Kingston, where he briefly danced to a steel drum version of Bob Marley's "One Love." It goes without saying he looked a little goofy -- such are the consequences of royalty dancing in blue suede shoes -- but his shimmying skills were a revelation.

Also on the subject of Prince Harry: apparently he's "secretly wooing" Katy Perry, and is trying to convince organizers to let her perform in some capacity at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebration this summer, just so he can ask her on a date. To us, it sounds more like Harry would like to be secretly wooing Katy Perry, but hasn't had a chance yet. A source outlines what the Prince of Wales sees in the freshly-divorced "Teenage Dream" singer. "First," says the source, "he thinks she is a rocking artist with great songs. But secondly she is single and very sexy." Those are actually two pretty good reasons, but don't they travel in enough of the same circles where Harry can approach without having to go through the elaborate Diamond Jubilee-invite business?
