You may not know this, but Shaquille O’Neal is a DJ who performs under the name DJ Diesel. On March 24, he’s throwing a huge EDM dance party in Miami called “Shaq’s Fun House.” It starts at 2am and goes until sunrise. WTH??? Shaquille says there will be “flame throwers, people swinging from ceilings, a lot of costumes.” But he won’t just be playing EDM, he’ll throw in some hip-hop and classics. He says he likes to read the crowd and see what they like, and quote, “I want to hit them with that base, edgy trap.” That must be DJ-speak because I don’t know what that means….
Breaking news!! Taylor Swift has been spotted! And she was with her British actor boyfriend, Joe Alwyn! This is a very rare sighting, which is why this is breaking news. The two of them went on a 3-mile hike in Malibu Wednesday morning with a bodyguard trailing about 20 feet behind. The last time they were seen together was back in December when Taylor performed at the Jingle Ball in NYC. A witness to this Taylor and Joe sighting told Page Six that what struck her most about seeing them together was that “they kind of look exactly like each other, which is weird.”
Kylie Jenner gave birth to baby Stormi on February 1st and after a month of mommy stuff, she decided she needed a break. So she and baby daddy Travis Scott headed across the country to Miami last weekend, which is where Hollywood Life says Travis got so caught up in the moment that he spontaneously asked Kylie to marry him. She turned him down. Their source says Kylie definitely wants to marry Travis but she also really loves how things are right now. The source says Kylie knows she rushed into this relationship, so she’s now trying to slow it down and enjoy every single stage.
Ellen Pompeo made headlines when she negotiated a $20 million a year paycheck for “Grey’s Anatomy.” But did that huge salary increase cost two of her female co-workers their jobs? Sarah Drew and Jessica Capshaw are being cut at the end of Season 14, and based upon Sarah’s tweet, she was blindsided by the news. She said, “I haven’t really had the time to process this information. I’ve been with it for less than 48 hours, so I’m not ready to say my thank yous and give an all encompassing statement about my 9 years here. That will come later…” For those assuming this is Ellen’s fault, she takes issue with that. After a Deadline article reporting Sarah and Jessica’s exit on the heels of Ellen’s blockbuster deal, she responded on Twitter, “I’m a big girl @DEADLINE can take shots at me if they want but to the fans please don’t fall into that trap. This is above my pay grade.” Whether it’s about cutting other salaries to pay Ellen, we may never know. Shonda Rhimes is saying the actresses were cut because their story lines have come to an end.
Demi Lovato has been sober for almost six years, but it’s not always easy! She told Billboard that she had such a “a terrible experience” at the 2016 Met Gala, it almost drove her to have a drink! She said, “This one celebrity was a complete b**** and was miserable to be around. It was very cliquey. I remember being so uncomfortable that I wanted to drink.” But she didn’t! Instead, Demi texted her manager, changed out of her clothes — except for the millions of dollars of diamonds she’d borrowed for the Gala — and went straight to a 10pm AA meeting. Demi said, “I related more to the homeless people in that meeting who struggled with the same struggles that I deal with than the people at the Met Gala.” Everyone’s assuming the person who was so awful to her was Nicki Minaj, based on the red carpet photos of Nicki shooting daggers at Demi with her eyes for daring to get into a picture with her and designer Jeremy Scott.
