All good things must come to an end, and Jennifer Lopez has announced that her final “All I Have” performance in Vegas will happen September 29, 2018. The last run of shows will happen from June 13 through September 29, and tickets go on sale December 15. (That would make a great Christmas present! Just saying…….)

50 Cent was really getting into his performance the Ora nightclub in Miami, jumping off a speaker onto a VIP table and then on top of the DJ booth when OOPS! He landed right on top of the mixer and broke it. 50 offered to pay the $1000 to replace it, but the club owner told him not to worry about it. He told Page Six, “The broken mixer was worth every penny. He’s welcome to come back and jump on our DJ equipment anytime.”

When Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez reconnected in October, a source close to Selena’s family told TMZ, “Justin is a vile human and will never be accepted by us. As long as she’s even speaking to him in any way, it is not only disrespectful to everyone around her, it is disrespectful to herself.” So how do you REALLY feel?? Despite her family’s disgust over the situation, Selena and Justin have continued to go to church together and hang out on low-key dates. She’s just not bringing him around her family just yet. In fact, a source told People that Selena will be spending Christmas with her family and as of NOW, Justin is not invited.

My, how 24 hours can change everything. Celebrities and athletes rallied around 11-year-old Keaton Jones, who cried about being bullied for looking different. But then people started digging a little into Keaton’s family and found racist comments and pictures of the confederate flag on his mom’s Facebook page. A GoFundMe page called “Stand Up for Keaton” has been paused after raising almost $60K in two days. And then questions were raised about a second GoFundMe page Keaton’s mom allegedly started. It’s not clear if it was really mom who did that or if it was a scam, but that page has been shut down. And now some kids who go to school with Keaton are saying he uses racial slurs and he was being bullied in retaliation for that, but his sister says that’s not true. In light of all this new information and accusations, some celebrities are taking a different approach to Keaton’s situation. Billy Eichner tweeted, “Well I’m inviting Keaton to the Golden Globes and making him sit with the cast of Get Out.” Others are taking it more seriously. Somebody asked comedian Patton Oswalt about whether or not he would continue to support Keaton and he responded, “Keaton didn’t get to choose the family that raised & shaped him, you smug ghoul. How ‘bout showing him that people of all races & creeds can come together? Change things, maybe? Show him a better world?”
