Ariana Grande fans in Seoul, South Korea, are slamming the singer following her show at the Gocheok Sky Dome on Tuesday. The Korea Herald reports that criticism stemmed from Grande’s arrival in the country on Tuesday just three hours before the concert–which allowed no time for the perks paid for by fans via ticket packages. Specifically, several fans purchased $570 VIP tickets, which included entry to watch a rehearsal that didn’t happen. A pre-show fan meet-and-greet was also canceled because of Grande’s late arrival. “Arriving three hours before the show and leaving at midnight. I wonder how much she received for her concert,” actress Kim Ji-woo wrote on Instagram after the show. “I want to delete Ariana’s songs I bought on iTunes from my playlist.”
Britney Spears’ legal team has reportedly filed documents to amend her will to better protect her 11-year-old son Sean and 10-year-old son Jayden. According to TMZ, Britney’s longtime conservators are looking to change certain aspects of her will–which currently states that, if the pop singer dies, her boys would inherit her entire fortune when they are 18. Sources close to the situation say the new estate plan creates a trust for the kids, which will give them limited access to the money at 18 and more access at age 25. However, they won’t have access to the rest of the money until they are 35. The trust also slashes the amount of inheritance tax the estate will have to pay.
On Wednesday’s episode of TODAY, Tina Fey called out oc-host Kathie Lee Gifford for complaining that she’d never been on their show. “Let’s go into the vault, Kathie—Kathryn Lee,” Fey declared. “Because I have been on the show, and I’ve talked to you. And I must have been boring because you don’t remember me.” She continued, “I’m willing to bet $100 that I’ve been on the show, so let’s roll that clip.” It turned out she was right. Gifford, who celebrated her 64th birthday yesterday, joked that her memory must be faiing her because she’s a “senior citizen.” Gifford initially said during her Mondazy interview with Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Tituss Burgess that they’d had plenty of his colleagues on the show, with the exception of the show’s creator, Fey.
In a new cover story for The Hollywood Reporter, Kim Kardashian confirms that she and husband Kanye West are trying to have a third child. “I hope so,” she says. “There have been a lot of things said and Kanye and I have not confirmed anything. We’re definitely trying. We are hoping so.” The 36-year-old reality star also opens up about how much she regrets her infamous 72-day marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries. “The night before, my mom pulled me aside, off camera, and was like, ‘This isn’t it for you. Why don’t you go away and I’ll handle it?'” she recalls. “I felt like, if I pulled out now, everyone’s going to think I just did it for the show. Then afterwards, people were saying, ‘You have to stay married for a year,’ but I physically couldn’t do it.” She adds of her decision to wed Humphries, “People f**k up.”
Simon Cowell said this week he considers his 3-year-old son Eric to be a good friend. “Eric’s old enough now to be my buddy,” Cowell recently told Extra. “We talk to each other all the time. We’re friends and he’s fun to be around.” Cowell went on to say that he, Eric, his ex-girlfriend Terri Seymour, and Seymour’s 2-year-old daughter Coco had a great time on their recent vacation in Mexico. “Coco’s great,” Cowell added. “The two of them together–they are hilarious.” As People notes, amicable exes Cowell and Seymour–who dated for six years before splitting in 2008–get together often with their kids. Cowell is currently in a relationship with Eric’s mother Lauren Silverman.
ABC made a big splash when they got Katy Perry to be an “American Idol” judge . . . but it’s been over three months since then, and there’s still no word on who will be joining her. TMZ claims the show “seems to be in crisis” because they haven’t finalized any deals, and filming is set to start in six weeks. Sources say rumored judges like Lionel Richie, Charlie Puth, Luke Bryan, and Keith Urban aren’t close to signing on . . . and naturally, the hang-ups have to do with money. Lionel is reportedly asking for $10 million, which is $15 million LESS than Katy Perry, but DOUBLE the amount that “Idol” wants to pay. TMZ also says that “Idol” would like to have four judges, but they might settle for three.
Pink and Christina Aguilera teamed up on that “Lady Marmalade” cover for the “Moulin Rouge” soundtrack in 2001 . . . but since then, they haven’t always been the best of friends. But Pink says that’s in the past. She saw a hater-slash-Christina fan take a shot at her on social media, and she said, quote, “[There’s] an awful new phenomenon . . . [where] we can no longer be happy for each other. I love Christina, we’ve made amends.”Music brings us all together. The best part of music is, there’s room for EVERYONE to win at the same time. Don’t be what’s wrong with the world . . . you don’t have to like me at all . . . just be a decent person.” If you’ve been watching “The Voice”, this shouldn’t come as a surprise . . . Pink served as an adviser on Season 10 last year. There was a rumor in the tabloids that Christina was upset that Pink was brought onboard, but another source debunked it . . . and nothing ever came of it.
Another “Game of Thrones” episode leaked yesterday, but the culprit wasn’t a hacker . . . it was HBO. (!!!) The upcoming episode, “Death is the Enemy”, was accidentally posted on HBO Nordic and HBO Espana. It wasn’t up for long, but this is the Internet age, meaning that it was basically everywhere in no time. HBO says, quote, “The error appears to have originated with a third-party vendor and the episode was removed as soon as it was recognized. This is not connected to the recent cyber incident at HBO in the US.”
