Happy Tuesday! We鈥檙e back again with the morning buzz, so you can dish with your co-workers as you hobnob around the coffee maker this AM. And we have not one, but TWO squee-worthy animals that made this morning鈥檚 list, so enjoy!

88th Annual Academy Awards - Backstage And Audience

1. Everyone wants to know about Brie Larson鈥檚 bf. The Best Actress winner鈥檚 hunky man-date to the Oscars is her longtime boyfriend Alex Greenwald, and the pair are officially the interweb鈥檚 new fave couple. Alex, who was the lead singer of Phantom Planet (yes, the band behind The O.C.鈥檚 theme song, 鈥淐alifornia鈥), has been by Brie鈥檚 side throughout award show season as she cleaned up in practically every category she was nominated for, for her role in Room. She鈥檚 also shouted him out in every speech.


After her Golden Globes win, she thanked him by saying, 鈥淭hank you, Alex, my love,鈥 to which he responded in the audience, 鈥淚 love you.鈥 Ugh, the cuteness doesn鈥檛 stop. (h/t E Online, photos via NBC and Christopher Polk/Getty)

2. This kitten is real life Puss in Boots. A kitten who lives in Korea and goes by the name of Gimo is taking the Internet by storm thanks to its resemblance to Shrek鈥檚 adorable feline friend, Puss in Boots. Seriously, this kitty鈥檚 face is about 80 percent eyes and it鈥檚 so cute, we can鈥檛 even deal. Check out the Instagram video above to have the best Tuesday ever.


3. Miley Cyrus just wished Justin Bieber happy birthday with the most twinning pic ever. Today is Justin Bieber鈥檚 22nd birthday, and the tributes to the Sorry singer are already rolling in. One that tops this list, however, is this pic posted by Miley Cyrus on her Instagram. Are Biebs and Miley related? Because, whoa. Trippy as all hell and we can鈥檛 stop staring.

4. Both of Ben Affleck鈥檚 exes hate his new tattoo. Last night, Jennifer Lopez was on Bravo鈥檚 Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, and she made plain what her thoughts were on her ex-bf Ben Affleck鈥檚 new phoenix rising from the ashes tattoo (which you can see here). 鈥淚t鈥檚 awful!鈥 the singer laughed. 鈥淚t has too many colors! His tattoos always have too many colors. They shouldn鈥檛 be so colorful, you know what I mean? They should be, like, cooler.鈥

88th Annual Academy Awards - Red Carpet

Ben鈥檚 other ex, Jennifer Garner, who seems to feel the same way, was a little more coy when speaking on her ex-husband鈥檚 new ink. In her interview with Vanity Fair, the actress said, 鈥淵ou know what we would say in my hometown about that? 鈥楤less his heart.鈥 A phoenix rising from the ashes. Am I the ashes in this scenario?鈥 (h/t Bravo, photos via Christopher Polk/Getty)


5. Puppy with braces is all of us in middle school. This puppy had to get braces due to a life-threatening condition that was interfering with his eating, and so here he is, with his mouth full of metal. Regardless of why, though, this adorable brace-face is easily one of the cutest things you鈥檙e going to see today. Just look at that smile!

6. Quote of the Day: 鈥淵ou have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.鈥 鈥 Dr. Seuss
