Last night as concert goers were exiting the Manchester, England Arena following Ariana Grande’s show a bomb went off. Sadly, the death toll is now at 22 people with close to 60 insured.
Police are investigating it as an ACT OF TERRORISM, and it appears to have been the work of a suicide bomber. No one has claimed responsibility yet.
Ariana wasn’t injured, but she Tweeted, “Broken. From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don’t have words.” The rest of her tour has been suspended for the time being.
According to my source British actor, Joe Alwyn wants to make a go of it with Taylor Swift. I hear that he is considering moving from London to the U.S. to be closer to Taylor. That said, Joe is close to his family, so he would still come home to visit a lot. We’ll see if that ends up happening…
If buying a mansion in California is the sign of “making it” then our good ‘ol Canadian boy, The Weeknd, has made it. He recently purchased a Hidden Hills, California home for $20 million.

Chrissy Teigen bailed on watching her husband John Legend perform at Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards to go see Magic Mike Live in Las Vegas. When Cosmopolitan published an article the following day titled, Even Though Her Hubby Was Performing, Chrissy Teigen Skipped the Billboard Music Awards to Go See Magic Mike Live, she shared a link to the story and declared, “And it was dope.”
On last night’s Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special, Katy Perry got candid about her feud with Taylor Swift. “That’s true, there is a situation,” she declared when James Corden asked her about it. “Honestly, it’s really like she started it and it’s time for her to finish it.” She went on to confirm that the disagreement was about backup dancers and that she tried to talk to Taylor about it to no avail. “She wouldn’t speak to me,” Katy explained. “It was a full shut-down and then she writes a song about me and I’m like ‘OK, cool, cool, cool. That’s how you wanna deal with it? …You do something and there’s going to be a reaction. And trust me daddy, there’s going to be a reaction. It’s all about karma.” James’ response: “I find it weird when you call me daddy.” He also asked the pop star if she’d be willing to let the entire situation blow over if she received a text from Taylor saying “the beef is off the grill.” Katy laughed and replied, “Yeah, absolutely–100 percent.”
Ed Sheeran might have gotten engaged without telling any of us! The nerve! Russell Crowe was doing a radio interview where he said Ed came to visit him in New South Wales.

Nancy O’Dell revealed yesterday that her former Access Hollywood colleague Billy Bush recently sent her an apology over the infamous Donald Trump tape that was leaked back in October. “Billy reached out to me just about three weeks ago by email. He wrote a really nice apology, which I appreciated very much,” Nancy said on Monday’s episode of Entertainment Tonight. “He and I worked together for so many years, for a long time, and I only wish him the best moving forward.” On the tape in question, Billy could be heard laughing along while Trump described inappropriate behavior toward women–including Nancy.
Following the bombing at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England last night many celebrities turned to social media to share their sentiments. On his Instagram Drake wrote: “We just left from touring in Europe and this was such a real fear we discussed frequently. I was crushed today to hear it became a reality. My condolences to all of the families affected and we will be praying for all of Manchester. Also I am praying on peace of mind for Ariana.”
A 21-year-old London waitress was recently fired for having steamy hotel sex with Orlando Bloom. Viviana Ross and Orlando hit it off when she served him drinks at Chiltern Firehouse, a five-star hotel and restaurant. “There was real electricity between her and Orlando from the moment they saw each other,” my source says. After her shift ended, she ran into Orlando and he reportedly asked her to join him for a drink. She said yes. Orlando left in the morning, and a Chiltern Firehouse staffer later found Viviana Ross in Orlando’s bed. She soon received a text informing her she was fired for “fraternizing with clients.” For her part, Viviana apparently doesn’t regret her romp, which a friend classified as a “night of incredible sex” with “an exceptionally good lover.”
Okay, so Prince Harry’s girlfriend, Meghan Markle wasn’t at Pippa Middleton’s wedding ceremony, I guess the “no ring, no bring rule” did apply, even to the Suits actress. That said, she did attend the reception. Speaking of Pippa’s wedding (to financier and former racing driver James Matthews), apparently, the best man gave a rather raunchy speech. To be exact, he likened Pippa to a dog and touched on boys’ weekends and gay bars… I guess it didn’t go over too well considering who was in attendance.
Maybe women really do dig a guy with a sense of humour. Scarlett Johansson has been hooking up with Colin Jost from “Saturday Night Live”.
Scarlett was on “SNL” this weekend to play Ivanka Trump, and they were reportedly all over each other at the after-party. But that wasn’t the first time. My source says, “They’re not in a relationship, but they have fun together . . .
“It’s not exclusive . . . At this point, it’s fun and casual.”
