“Billboard” magazine named Selena Gomez its Woman of the Year, and not surprisingly, their interview with her eventually came around to Justin Bieber and what brought him back into her life.
She said, “I’m 25. I’m not 18, or 19, or 20. I cherish people who have really impacted my life. So maybe before, it could have been forcing something that wasn’t right. But that doesn’t mean caring for someone ever goes away.”
She also said it’s all good with The Weeknd, “There’s such a true friendship. I truly have never experienced anything like that in my life.
“We ended it as best friends, and it was genuinely about encouraging and caring [for each other], and that was pretty remarkable for me.”
Also, don’t expect Selena to get any work done to herself anytime soon, even on the scar from her kidney transplant surgery. She says, “There is absolutely zero judgment on my end.
“I just think for me, it could be my eyes, my round face, my ears, my legs, my scar. I don’t have perfect abs, but I feel like I’m wonderfully made.
Russell Simmons is stepping down from his businesses, after a woman accused him of rape.
The alleged victim is Jenny Lumet. She wrote the Anne Hathaway movie “Rachel Getting Married”, and was one of the writers of this year’s “Mummy” movie. She’s the daughter of filmmaker Sidney Lumet, and the granddaughter of singer Lena Horne.
Jenny wrote a piece for the “Hollywood Reporter” yesterday, saying that in 1991, Russell took her to his apartment against her will and sexually assaulted her.
After it came out, Russell issued the following statement, “I have been informed with great anguish of Jenny Lumet’s recollection about our night together in 1991.
“I know Jenny and her family and have seen her several times over the years since the evening she described. While her memory of that evening is very different from mine, it is now clear to me that her feelings of fear and intimidation are real.”
Kaley Cuoco not only celebrated her 32nd birthday on Thursday, but her engagement to boyfriend Karl Cook. He shared a video on Instagram of the Big Bang Theory star crying tears of joys just minutes after he popped the question. “After nearly two years I finally got up the courage to ask her to marry me,” Karl captioned the post. “This is the best night of my life and I think the video shows it is the best night for Kaley as well.” In the clip, Kaley holds up the ring on her finger and announces through tears, “We’re engaged!” Karl jokingly responds, “You still haven’t said yes yet.” She then shouts, “Yes! I say yes! I say yes!” Kaley later gushed about the engagement herself by posting the same video as Karl. “Still crying,” she wrote. “Every part of this night has been perfection just like you @mrtankcook. I love you forever!”
New Hollywood couple Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost were photographed at their first red carpet event together last night. Scarlett and Colin, who is a Saturday Night Live writer, have been romantically linked since May.
Johnny Galecki is reprising his Roseanne character for the show reboot. ‘The Big Bang Theory’ actor, who played David Healy on Roseanne from 1992 to 1997, missed the first table read for the TV revival, sparking rumours he may not be involved, but Roseanne Barr confirmed on Twitter that Johnny is in! She wrote, “We have got our Johnny Galecki back on Roseanne this episode – what a joy to work with such a deeply empathetic actor”.
“Bodak Yellow” rapper Cardi B wants to perform at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding in May. She says she is a huge fan of their whole story, and she loves the idea that there are real-life princes and royal kingdoms. She says, “I want to meet Prince Harry, just because of the fact that he is a prince.” Cardi B went on to offer to perform at the couple’s wedding for free. “I’ll just do it, ’cause it’s like oh snap! ‘Have you performed for a future king?'” she declared, even though Prince Harry is currently sixth in line for the throne.
Jenny Slate and Chris Evans are back together! At least, that’s what it looks like. They were spotted acting very much like a couple in New York this week. They broke up in February, but publicly gushed about each other any chance they got, so it’s not really surprising that they have rekindled their romance.
The New York Yankees parted ways with their long-time manager Joe Girardi earlier this year. Joe had been with the team since 2008, and even won a World Series with them.
It was reported that the Yankees want to replace Joe with someone who can do a better job of connecting with players. The team has taken it’s time finding a replacement, so I guess Jennifer Lopez decided it was time to take things into her own hands.
J Lo sent out a tweet on Thursday afternoon in which she said it was clear that New York should hire her boyfriend and former Yankee star Alex Rodriguez. Is that an embarrassing thing for a girlfriend to do?
