Selena Gomez called out by kidney donor Francia Raisa over alleged diss
Are you kidneying me? In a recent Rolling Stone interview, Selena Gomez described Taylor Swift as her "only friend in the industry," leading some to wonder why she seemingly was snubbing her good friend Francia Raisa. The actress donated a kidney to Gomez in 2017 after the singer was diagnosed with lupus. Well, Raisa was wondering that, too. On an E! News Instagram post highlighting Gomez's quote, Raisa simply commented, "Interesting." She stars on Hulu's How I Met Your Father, so she would qualify as being "in the industry," though some fans defended Gomez by suggesting she was specifically talking about the music industry. But Gomez may not have helped matters by sarcastically commenting on a TikTok about the situation, "Sorry I didn't mention every person I know." It's the juiciest drama since that girl in your eighth grade class left her best friend out of her MySpace top eight.
Cher defends 40-year age gap with her new boyfriend
If she could turn back time, maybe Cher wouldn't be old enough to be her new boyfriend's grandmother. The 76-year-old "Believe" singer has confirmed in a series of tweets that she's dating 36-year-old music producer Alexander Edwards, who's also Amber Rose's ex-boyfriend. They met at Paris Fashion Week and were previously rumored to be together after they were spotted holding hands. She has now shared a photo of him with a heart, telling off haters who have a problem with the relationship. "Let Me Explain…I DONT GIVE A [FLYING] FK WHAT ANYONE THINKS," she told one follower, revealing "everyone in my family has" already met him. Cher also said that everyone should calm down because "we're Happy & Not Bothering Anyone" and "LOVE DOESN'T KNOW MATH." Hold her beer, Leonardo DiCaprio and Dane Cook.
Rebel Wilson welcomes her 1st child via surrogate
She's pitch perfect. Rebel Wilson has welcomed her first child via a surrogate, she revealed Monday on Instagram. "I can't even describe the love I have for her, she's a beautiful miracle," the Pitch Perfect star wrote. The baby girl's name is Royce Lillian, she said. The news comes after Wilson came out as gay in June (after a newspaper threatened to out her) and revealed her relationship with her girlfriend Ramona Agruma. But on Instagram, Wilson said the birth of her first child has "been years in the making," and she thanked "my gorgeous surrogate" for "helping me start my own family, it's an amazing gift. The BEST gift!!" Prior to confirming her relationship with Agruma, Wilson revealed she was trying to start a family. "I'm just going for it by myself at the moment because of the biological clock," she said. "If I meet the right person, great, and then they can fit in with whatever happens."
Kathy Griffin gets suspended from Twitter, returns on her dead mom's account
This one goes out to the brave souls who gave their Twitter lives to roast Elon Musk. Comedian Kathy Griffin was one of a number of people suspended from Twitter over the weekend after she used her verified account to impersonate new boss Elon Musk, who announced he will ban all impersonators who don't "clearly" specify that they're parodies. But Griffin almost immediately evaded her suspension by logging back on using the Twitter account of her mother, Maggie Griffin, who died in 2020. "She was suspended for impersonating a comedian," Musk wrote of Griffin, who then shot back on the account of her deceased mom (which was again made to look like Musk's account), "You stole that joke, you a--hole. People have been posting that joke for hours, you hack." In another tweet, she wrote, "Elon, this is Maggie contacting you from the spirit world tell u…you're a douchebag." Don't you love to spend $44 billion to be trolled relentlessly by ghosts?
Ryan Murphy will make more Netflix shows about more monsters
Is there any Ryan Murphy show that won't turn into an anthology rather than simply end? The American Horror Story creator's Netflix series Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story has been renewed for not one, but two more seasons. But rather than following Jeffrey Dahmer in hell, the series has been rebranded as an anthology revolving around various different monsters. Evan Peters starred as the title character in Dahmer, which generated backlash as some deemed the show exploitative and family members of victims slammed it. But it still became a huge hit for Netflix, and Murphy responded to the backlash by asking The New York Times, "What are the rules now? Should we never do a movie about a tyrant?" Future seasons of Monster will "tell the stories of other monstrous figures who have impacted society," Netflix said. The subjects weren't revealed, but we're assuming season two will be about the most despicable monster of all: Whoever decided to cancel GLOW.
