Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson are engaged??

This is too much for me.

Usually I’m a true love shipper, and celebrity marriages tend to end in divorce no matter how long they’ve spent together, but this is insane.

If you’re not caught up in the whirlwind romance between the Saturday Night Live (SNL) star Pete Davidson and pop diva Ariana Grande, the couple met during Grande’s guest hosting role on SNL on March 12, 2018.

In May, both performers broke off long-term relationships they had both been in within a week of each other. A WEEK after that Davison is reportedly seen behind the stage at the Billboard Music Awards cheering Grande on , and within days they were Instagram official.

AND THEN, get this, on June 2 he gets not one, but TWO tattoos of Ariana. One of them being her initials and the other her iconic “Dangerous Woman” bunny mask. The same fricken day, at Wango Tango, Grande is sporting what is reportedly her engagement ring. Rumors hadn’t started flying yet because they were like, three weeks into a ‘casual’ relationship.

According to TMZ, the ring cost a cool $93,000 and Davison picked it out in May. The ring was specifically made for Grande, and took two weeks to complete. People are still unclear if he had broken up with his long-term girlfriend, Cazzie Davids, by the time he bought the ring. Yikes.

We didn’t get confirmation of the engagement until June 14. Grande responded to a fan on Twitter who told her,

“I hope he knows he is maRRYING US AS WELL,” said Twitter user @xsweetdrops, referring to Grande’s fan base. Grande responded by saying, “HAHAHAHAHAHH HES BEEN BRIEFED.”

Twitter user, @officiallouise, joked about the speed of their relationship saying, “that’s what happens when you put a cancer and scorpio together.” And honestly, true.

So it’s real, y’all. Get ready for another huge Hollywood wedding.


“Bachelorette” contestant Lincoln Admin convicted of indecent assault.

Lincoln Admin is a current contestant on the 14th season of “The Bachelorette” and is fighting to win Becca Kufrin’s heart against 27 other dudes. Last month, he was convicted of indecent assault and battery, and will have to register as a sex offender.

In May, a week before the season premiere of the show, Admin was found guilty of groping and assulting a woman on a harbour cruise ship in 2016.

Admin was sentenced to one year in a house of correction, with that term suspended for a two-year probationary period, and was ordered to stay away from the victim and attend three Alcoholics Anonymous meetings per week.

In a statement the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office spoke about what would happen to Admin.

“If he complies with the judge’s orders, he will not have to serve out his term, but if he fails to comply with those orders or re-offends, he could be ordered to serve out the year behind bars,” the statement said, adding, “By law, he is expected to register as a sex offender.”

Season 15 star Ashley Spivey was the driving force behind getting this information out. She posted a screenshot of the statement from the District Attorney’s office and called out the Bachelor franchise for allowing him to be on the show.

“It took me exactly one hour to do the proper research and contact the proper authorities to find this information,” her tweet read. “I am honestly horrified that Lincoln, who was charged with indecent assault and battery, was allowed to go on the show. I do not understand how a serious crime like this was missed during background checks.”

Warner Brothers soon released a statement about the matter.

“No one on ‘The Bachelorette’ production had any knowledge about the incident or charges when Lincoln Adim was cast, and he himself denied ever having engaged in or having been charged with any sexual misconduct. We employ a well-respected and highly experienced third party who has done thousands of background checks consistent with industry standards to do a nationwide background check in this case. The report we received did not reference any incident or charge relating to the recent conviction – or any other charges relating to sexual misconduct. We are currently investigating why the report did not contain this information, which we will share when we have it.”

Honestly, we have to do better, guys. Things like this are getting out of hand. I am so sick of this crap.

Drake pulls off epic “Degrassi” reunion.

Apparently, Jimmy Brooks learned to walk again.

Drake—a.k.a. Aubrey Graham—staged a “Degrassi” reunion for the class of 2007 in his music video for “I’m Upset,” released overnight. The rap superstar recruited many of his former co-stars—including Dalmar Abuzeid (Danny Van Zandt), Sarah Barrable-Tishauer (Liberty Van Zant), Paula Brancati (Jane Vaughn), Stefan Brogen (Archie “Snake” Simpson), Lauren Collins(Paige Michalchuk), Nina Dobrev (Mia Jones), Marc Donato (Derek Haig), Ephram Ellis (Rick Murray), Jake Epstein (Craig Manning), Stacey Farber (Ellie Nash), Jake Goldsbie (Toby Isaacs), Shane Kippel (Spinner Mason), Andrea Lewis (Hazel Aden), Linlyn Lue (Laura Kwan), Miriam MacDonald (Emma Nelson), Melissa McIntyre (Ashley Kerwin), Adamo Rugguiero (Marco Del Rossi), AJ Saudin (Connor DeLaurier), Christina Schmidt (Christina Schmidt), Cassie Steele(Manny Santos)—for his trip down memory lane.

Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith, who starred in the four-part “Degrassi Goes Hollywood” film special, also made cameo appearances. For reasons unknown, cast members Daniel Clark (Sean Cameron) and Ryan Cooley (J.T. Yorke) were M.I.A.

After the video premiered many of the cast members gave us a peek behind the scenes of the music video.

“The boys are back together!” Kippel wrote on Instagram. “When I got the call that @champagnepapi had this idea for his next video, the feeling was hard to describe. When it became real and I further found out that it was a complete @degrassi cast reunion, it suddenly became very clear that this would be a weekend for the history books. To be a part of something of this magnitude with my childhood on screen best friend Aubrey Graham turned rap superstar and business mogul Drake was something truly special, and then to do it with ALL of my old cast members back at on our old sets really put the experience over the edge.”

MacDonald shared an image with Drake on Instagram writing, “Thank you, thank you, thank you to THIS incredible guy for bringing us all together just like old times.” In another caption, the actress said she had the “best time reuniting with some of my oldest and dearest friends.”

This is so cute, so sweet and definitely one for the history books.
