Pete Davidson is reportedly dating Emily Ratajkowski
He can't keep getting away with it! After an anonymous tipster claimed to DeuxMoi they spotted Pete Davidson and Emily Ratajkowski on a date, Us Weekly and People are both reporting the two are, in fact, together. "Pete and Emily have been talking for a couple months now," an insider told Us Weekly, revealing they're "in the very early stages, but both really like each other." A source close to Davidson also confirmed to People that he and Ratajkowski are "seeing each other." Davidson, of course, split from Kim Kardashian in August, while Ratajkowski divorced her husband in September — sparking tons of jokes that she'd soon end up with Davidson given his reputation for inexplicably dating the most gorgeous women on Earth. Besides, she told Seth Meyers last year Davidson "seems super charming" and "lovely." No offense to the SNL star, but at some point you've got to wonder how many wishes he has left from the genie he clearly discovered years ago.
Candace Cameron Bure faces backlash for comments on LGBTQ Christmas movies
Everywhere you look on Candace Cameron Bure's new network, you won't find gay leads. The Full House alum is facing backlash after promising Great American Family, the network where she serves as chief creative officer, won't feature LGBT-led Christmas movies like Hallmark. Bure defected from Hallmark to Great American Family this year, and she told The Wall Street Journal she did so because the "people behind Great American Family were Christians that love the Lord." But she also promised Great American Family has no plans for holiday movies led by same-sex couples, unlike Hallmark, which has an LGBT Christmas movie coming up this year. "I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core," she told the Journal. One Tree Hill star Hilarie Burton Morgan blasted Bure on Twitter as a "bigot," also slamming the network as "disgusting" — and one can only assume that JoJo Siwa, who dubbed Bure the rudest celebrity she's ever met, is feeling validated.
Andrew Garfield is 'releasing myself from the societal obligation' of having kids by 40
Tick tick … meh. In a new GQ interview, 39-year-old Andrew Garfield said he's rejecting the pressure to have kids as he approaches age 40. Despite always thinking "I would be the first to have kids and settle down" among his friends, the Amazing Spider-Man actor noted the opposite has happened, with all his friends now being "a couple of kids deep." Meanwhile, he has yet to become a father and is "just contemplating existence" and "trying to fill my days with as much nonsense as I possibly can." But Garfield declared he's now "releasing myself from the societal obligation of procreating by the time I'm 40," which "has been an interesting thing to do with myself." As far as why he hasn't yet kids, Garfield quipped, "Oh, God. Where do I start with why it didn't happen?" Well, preparing for roles by being celibate for half a year at a time may not have helped.
Taylor Swift's Ticketmaster presale goes disastrously
Ticketmaster has this thing where it gets older but just never less terrible. Taylor Swift fans were scrambling to get tickets for her Eras Tour on Tuesday, and boy, did it not go well. Ticketmaster selected "Verified Fans" for a presale event, but while you might think this would help keep the site functioning smoothly, it crashed anyway. Swifties found themselves waiting in long lines, only to receive error messages or be told the code they received was incorrect. Eventually, Ticketmaster put out a statement saying there "has been historically unprecedented demand with millions showing up" to buy tickets. To be fair, though, who could have possibly foreseen Swift's first tour in years might be kind of popular? Fans were frustrated and disappointed with the process, deeming it a "s--tshow" — and even Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) jumped in to call for Ticketmaster to be broken up. Based on this experience, we're assuming one of the eras Swift refers to is the dial-up era.
Beyoncé leads 2023 Grammy nominations, ties Jay-Z for most nods ever
You can't break her soul, but she can break your records. The 2023 Grammy nominations were announced on Tuesday, and Beyoncé led the pack with nine nods — meaning she has tied her husband, Jay-Z, for most Grammy nominations of all time. Both of them have 88, as Jay-Z also picked up five new nominations Tuesday. Beyoncé was nominated for Record of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year for Renaissance, and the other Album of the Year nominees were ABBA, Adele, Bad Bunny, Mary J. Blige, Brandi Carlile, Coldplay, Kendrick Lamar, Lizzo, and Harry Styles. Kendrick Lamar received eight nominations, while Adele and Brandi Carlile earned seven. Meanwhile, the nominees for Best New Artist were Anitta, Omar Apollo, DOMi & JD Beck, Muni Long, Samara Joy, Latto, Måneskin, Tobe Nwigwe, Sandra Vortex, Molly Tuttle, and Wet Leg. Okay, one of those names is actually fake, but good luck spotting which!
