IT’S OVER! Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson SPLIT UP!

The romance that nobody understood yet still appreciated between Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson is officially O V E R! TMZ is reporting that both parties acknowledged over the weekend that this wasn’t the right time for their relationship and whilst they would remain friends, the romantic part of their relationship is done with. The former couple announced their surprise engagement earlier this year in May, just a few weeks after they were reported to be just casually dating. Grande and Davidson are yet to publicly comment on the split reports — but Davidson appears to have deleted his social media channels. Their silence hasn’t stopped fans from reacting to the news. this is us collectively about ariana grande’s and pete davidson’s split pic.twitter.com/qTa7GilhQx — 𝓀𝓅𝑜𝓅𝓅𝒾𝑒 (@markklamar) October 14, 2018 ariana and pete going to get their tattoos of each other removed pic.twitter.com/QUIPqNUrTk — َ (@twentyinepilots) October 14, 2018 Grande’s recently expressed she was going through a rough patch following the death of former boyfriend Mac Miller, tweeting a lot of personal messages and saying she needs a break from the public spotlight and asking “can i pls have one okay day. just one. pls.” Grande cancelled a string of public appearances following his death, including no-showing a planned performance at a cancer benefit last week.

IS KARL STEFANOVIC ABOUT TO BE FIRED FROM THE TODAY SHOW?

IS KARL STEFANOVIC ABOUT TO BE FIRED FROM THE TODAY SHOW?

Could one of Australia’s most popular television figures be looking for a new job soon? Rumours are circulating around the long-time host of Channel Nine’s  Today show could be fired from his current position because of a drop in ratings and his recent negative publicity. The Daily Telegraph has quoted an inside source at Channel Nine, saying that the 44-year-old is pretty much gone, and there’s nothing that can be done about it. Karl’s divorce from his wife of 21 years Cassandra Thorburn and recent leaked recordings slamming co-host Georgie Gardner have all contributed to the once untouchable top guy’s dwindling report amongst women, with Media analyst Steve Allen telling The Sunday Telegraph that female viewers “basically now think he is an a** hole”. Former host Lisa Wilkinson defecting to Channel Ten after news broke she was earning less than Karl is also said to be a factor in the show’s decline. But Stefanovic has broken his silence, taking to Instagram to share a photo of himself enjoying his weekend with fiancee Jasmine Yarbrough, brother Peter and friend Chris Waller.   View this post on Instagram   I’m incredibly grateful for the family and friends I have in this world. It’s all that matters really. I’m so proud of them. @chris_waller_racing @jasyarby @peter_stefanovic A post shared by karl stefanovic (@karlstefanovic_) on Sep 23, 2018 at 1:47am PDT Frontrunners to fill Karl’s chair include David Campbell, who hosts Today Extra, and Ben Fordham, who regularly fills in for the presenter. DO YOU THINK IT’S TIME FOR KARL TO GO? LEAVE YOUR THOUGHTS IN THE COMMENTS...

M-TERTAINMENT: Nollsy cracks it, Selena chills it, Wright spills it & Jenner don’t fills it

M-TERTAINMENT: Nollsy cracks it, Selena chills it, Wright spills it & Jenner don’t fills it

NOLLSY CRACKS IT AT BEER THROWING FAN SHANNON Noll has made headlines for the wrong reasons again, this time launching an expletive laden tirade against a fan who threw a beer at him whilst on stage in Nyngan on Saturday. Footage taken and posted on Facebook shows Noll swearing at the unidentified man and threatening violence against him… (WARNING: This video is full of expletives. Children should not watch this video) Since doing the rounds on social media, people have slammed the Condobolin native for his language and questioned where security was during the outburst. Noll has since apologised for his behaviour on Facebook. NOT A CARE IN THE WORLD FOR GOMEZ YESTERDAY we told you about Justin Bieber getting engaged to model Hailey Baldwin. Upon hearing this news, the world turned to the social media of one of Justin’s most notable on-again-off-again flames, Selena Gomez. Well, Justin popping the question appears to have had no effect on the 24 year old pop star, who was photographed enjoying a relaxing cruise around New York City, with her assistant posting a photo of the pair on Instagram. bestfriendddddd A post shared by Theresa Marie Mingus (@tmarie247) on Jul 8, 2018 at 12:26pm PDT “Selena doesn’t care. She’s over Justin and the last time they broke up allowed her to get over him fully,” an insider told Us Weekly. “Selena is an adult and can make her own choices,” Selena’s mother said earlier this year. “She is 25 years old and knows what is at stake with her health.” WRIGHT SPILLS ON SPACEY: “I DIDN’T KNOW HIM” DESPITE spending 5 years as the power-wielding Underwoods on House Of Cards, Robin Wright knew nothing about Kevin Spacey’s personal life, saying “Kevin & I knew each other between action and cut.” Wright has spoken exclusively with the US Today show about her former Cards co-star ahead of the series’ 6th and final season, which will focus on Wright as Clare Underwood who has assumed the presidency following husband Frank’s demise. “I didn’t really — I didn’t know the man. I knew the incredible craftsman that he is,” Wright told Savannah Guthrie about Spacey. “Kevin and I knew each other between action and cut, and in between setups where we would giggle.” No date has been announced as to the release of the final season of the acclaimed Netflix drama series, but we can expect it before the end of 2018. LESS FILLER, ALL KILLER FOR JENNER IT APPEARS Kylie Jenner is going back to basics, claiming she has stopped getting cosmetic injections to give her face a more natural look. Posting a photo of herself and a friend on Instagram, fans were quick to comment that her lips looked smaller than before, with Jenner responding “I got rid of all my filler.” heat wave A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on Jul 8, 2018 at 5:34pm PDT Jenner admitted to getting lip injections back in 2015, revealing in 2017 that it had been comments from a guy that she had a crush on that tipped her over the...

M-TERTAINMENT: Bieber & Baldwin in Bahamas, plus Chris Brown in trouble… AGAIN!

BIEBER AND BALDWIN DO IT IN THE BAHAMAS! IN WHAT might come as a shock to the entertainment world, it appears Justin Bieber has popped the question to model-now-fiancee Hayley Baldwin whilst on vacation in the Bahamas. According to sources, Bieber asked Baldwin to marry him in front of a group of people on the idyllic Caribbean island, saying that Justin had been planning this for a long time, having organised an engagement ring in New York City before the trip. The pair have been linked romantically on and off for the last three years or so, with the pair last getting back together only a couple of weeks ago.  One source told E! News “Justin and Hailey had talked about marriage before but Hailey didn’t think it would happen so quickly. A few of their friends know from Facetiming them.” Another source said “Justin is happier than ever and wants to be with Hailey. His family is very supportive and know he has been at his best lately. Everyone is very happy for him.” WONDER WOMAN SHOWS UP IN HOSPITAL WONDER Woman actress Gal Gadot has popped up at a hospital in the US, surprising kids and parents alike showing up in full Wonder Woman garb. The actress showed up at Inova Children’s Hospital in Annandale, Virginia and lit up every face she saw there — clearly seen in pictures shared via social media. Gal Gadot surprises children’s hospital in full #WonderWoman gear https://t.co/2BJ35bQJnM pic.twitter.com/HveE6QSlyP — Ryan Parker (@TheRyanParker) July 8, 2018 Production is underway for Wonder Woman 1984, which reunites Gadot with director Patty Jenkins and co-star Chris Pine, who all worked together in the 2017 hit, Wonder Woman. Thank you ⁦@GalGadot⁩ for visiting us ⁦@InovaHealth⁩ Children’s Hospital. You are a true Wonder Woman. The kids loved it…and so did the staff 😉 #wonderwoman84 pic.twitter.com/EFDLM02rpf — Dr. Lucas Collazo (@DrCollazo) July 6, 2018 A number of other heartwarming photos were shared by Wonder Woman fan accounts on Twitter and reddit. TINY ANT-MAN AND THE WASP A BIG HIT IT APPEARS the Marvel Studios juggernaut will not be slowing anytime soon, with its latest film Ant-Man And The Wasp taking the crown to be the biggest film this weekend in the US. According to studio estimates, the sequel to 2015’s Ant-Man will take in $76 million in ticket sales, almost $20 million more than the series’ first instalment. It also makes it the 20th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to debut at No. 1 in the box office, out of 20 MCU films. The film had a reported production budget of around $160 million and with $85 million in overseas ticket sales taken into account, the film appears to have recouped those costs in one weekend, and is now just making more of that sweet, sweet money for Stan Lee and the team at Marvel Studios. The Incredibles 2 finished up the weekend in second place taking $29 million whilst in a weekend for sequels, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom came in third just $400,000 behind. CHRIS BROWN ARRESTED… AGAIN! CHRIS Brown has been arrested again, this time for an outstanding warrant for a felony battery charge, just hours after his concert in Florida Thursday night US time. The rapper was led away to the Hillsborough County police station where he posted the $2000 bail on the charge. Brown’s representative has yet to comment about his arrest. Of course this isn’t the first time Brown has been in trouble with the law; last month, a woman was granted a temporary protective order against Brown after she said she...

M-TERTAINMENT: G-Eazy & Halsey split as America celebrates Independence Day!

Posted by on 5th July, 2018

M-TERTAINMENT: G-Eazy & Halsey split as America celebrates Independence Day!

HIM & I NO LONGER… RAPPER G-Eazy and singer Halsey have broken up after about a year together with Halsey citing touring and being apart from each other as the reason. The singer saying on her Instagram story overnight that she is “eager to continue the upcoming passage of time dedicating myself to my art and my career.” The pair first got together last year when they we’re spotted getting close at a number of G-Eazy’s album launch parties, an album that featured a song where the two artists collabed called Him & I. She might have dodged a bullet though, as the rapper had been in legal trouble recently after he was convicted of assault, drug possession and resisting arrest following a nightclub brawl in Sweden in May. SCAR-JO UNDER FIRE FOR HER NEW ROLE AVENGERS: Infinity War actress Scarlett Johansson is copping a little bit of flack on social media over her new role – joining the cast of the mob movie Rub & Tug as a transgender man. Social media users are asking why Johansson was picked for the role ahead of a transgender person, but the movie star said in a statement that those on social media “can be directed to Jeffrey Tambor, Jared Leto & Felicity Huffman’s reps for comment” – actors who have played transgender characters and received awards and critical acclaim for their portrayals. Scarlett Johansson is playing a trans man in her next movie because her ultimate career goal is to take an acting job from a member of each and every marginalized group. — Faith Choyce (@faithchoyce) July 3, 2018 We have to stop hiring non-trans actors to play trans characters. In my opinion, it’s equally as traumatic & offensive as black-face. It also shows how lazy, unwoke, and complicit in transphobia you are. #CASTAUTHENTICALLY! https://t.co/3WW1cOzrEE — Steven Canals (@StevenCanals) July 3, 2018 In the film she’ll be playing a parlour owner named Dante “Tex” Gill, but it’s not the first film Scar-Jo has taken flak for, coming under fire for playing a “whitewashed” asian character in the movie flop Ghost In The Shell. BIEBER AIN’T GOING TO JAIL JUST YET… JUSTIN Bieber has only just avoided to wrath of the law, with a judge deciding to not issue a warrant for his arrest for missing a deposition hearing relation to a 2014 incident with his neighbour. Bieber initially missed the deposition on June 22 about the 2014 incident where he allegedly threw eggs at his neighbours house because he was “canoodling” with girlfriend Hailey Baldwin in New York. According to the LA court clerk, the judge refrained from issuing a bench warrant, meaning to its more than likely Bieber and his neighbour have organised another time for the singer to sit down an explain what happened during the incident. STARS CELEBRATE FOURTH OF JULY AS HOT DOG RECORD GETS BROKEN STARS in Hollywood and right across America have celebrated their Independence Day, as the record for the number of hot dogs one person can eat in 10 minutes was broken overnight in New York. Joey Chestnut, also known as “Jaws” has broken his own record, putting 74 hot dogs down his throat at the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest and managing to get his 11th hot dog eating championship, cementing himself as the best competitive eater the world has ever known. Plenty of stars have also been posting on instagram what they’re doing for July 4, with some posting up food photos whilst my personal favourite is Cardi B who reminded us that July 4th is the day to...

TO INFINITY! TOY STORY 4 HAS AN OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE!

Even though there’s a bit of a wait, fans of the film series Toy Story are “buzzing” at the news that a release date has been announced for the 4th instalment of the Pixar animated franchise. The studio announced on Friday that the latest installment of Buzz, Woody and the whole gang will hit screens on June 21, 2019, send fans on social media into a frenzy.

Y’all better leave your screaming kids at home this is for the adults. — Hoshserna (@Muchacha1_) April 7, 2018 The first Toy Story was released in 1995 and kicked off the story of Woody the cowboy and Buzz Lightyear the astronaut, who started off being rivals and then turned into firm friends. The film has since spawned two more films, with the last being released in 2010. Some fans have questioned what the new film will be about, as Toy Story 3 wrapped things up at the end, but producers are keeping tight-lipped, with fans hoping to get more news as they eagerly await next summer’s big release. One thing we do know is that Tom Hanks and Tim Allen will be returning to lend their voices to Woody and Buzz. Tom said in an interview in 2016: “I can’t wait to see what they’ve got Woody up...

Swifties were on the hunt for Dua Lipa in 2016, because fans are just NUTS

She might be the most streamed Artist in the UK in 2017 and she may have picked up two BRIT awards last week, but there was a time when fans of Taylor Swift wanted “New Rules” singer Dua Lipa wanted her dead! In a new interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Lipa talked about how back in 2016 she received death threats from fans of the “Shake It Off singer” because she apparently had sided with Kanye West over her in the duo’s on-going beef. “I wasn’t thinking about their beef,” Lipa revealed. “I was thinking about their music, and Taylor is amazing, but I’m such a hip-hop fan that I would probably choose Kanye over anyone.” Lipa went on to admit that the reaction from Team Swift went way beyond her expectations and not in a good way. “They were sending me snake emojis for, like, three days straight. They’re like, ‘I hope you die.’ I’m like, ‘Yo! I literally didn’t say anything,'” she recalled. Back in October, Dua seemed to recruit Swifties in her corner after the budding singer was spotted wearing a Speak Now shirt during a fan meet and greet. In fact, she even caught the attention of Taylor herself. Unfortunately, the tide turned after Dua’s 2016 interview made the rounds, at least for her diehard fans.   “I am SCREECHING WITH JOY ‼‼‼” – Taylor’s reaction after learning that Dua Lipa wore a Speak Now shirt for her sound check pic.twitter.com/04KMGQpmMg — Taylor Swift News (@TSwiftDailyNews) October 24,...

Razzie Noms are out and oh boy was there some crap in 2017!

Razzie Noms are out and oh boy was there some crap in 2017!

It’s the awards ceremony that precedes the best in movies in the last twelve months and celebrates the worst in movies in the last twelve months. Each years the Golden Raspberries are awarded to those judged to have made those movies that by a wide margin missed out on an Oscars nod, and this year some big names have been nominated in the Worst Actor and Actresses categories. Jennifer Lawrence has earned herself a nomination with her performance in mother!, going up against Emma Watson for The Circle, Katherine Heigl, Dakota Johnson in Fifty Shades Darker and Tyler Perry, probably because his character in Boo 2! A Madea Halloween is a woman. Zac Efron and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson‘s attempted classy remake of TV show Baywatch earned itself a worst movie nomination, with The Emoji Move, Fifty Shades Darker, The Mummy and Transformers: The Last Knight all tough competition for the movie who tried to replace David Hasselhoff with a bloke who calls him self after a geological element.
