At least 22 people were killed and more than 50 were injured after a bomb went off outside an arena in Manchester, England, as people were leaving an ARIANA GRANDE concert. It happened around 10:30 P.M. local time, just as people were leaving the show.
Police are investigating it as an ACT OF TERRORISM, and they believe it was the work of a suicide bomber. No one has claimed responsibility yet. British Prime Minister THERESA MAY called it, quote, “an appalling terrorist attack.” As of last night, there was no word from PRESIDENT TRUMP. But the Department of Homeland Security is closely monitoring the situation.
wishing I could give my friend @arianagrande a great big hug right now… love love love you …. so sorry you had to be apart of such a tragic event! my most sincere condolences to anyone and everyone affected by this horrific attack! all I can do is send as much HOPE & PEACE your way! This MUST end! No more war …. no more innocent lives taken …. L-O-V-E 💙❤️💜💚💛 @happyhippiefdn
TMZ says she has suspended the rest of her tour for now. Her next show was scheduled for London on Thursday.
SCARLETT JOHANSSON has been hooking up with COLIN JOST from “Saturday Night Live”. Apparently, she was on SNL this past week to play IVANKA TRUMP and sources say they were all over each other at the after party, but this was not the first time the pair was spotted together. Friends of the two say it’s nothing serious yet, but they do have fun together.
Katy Perry is making BANK for being on American Idol. Of course, we would expect that she would make a lot of money for lending her judging skills, but 25 MILLION?! Apparently, ABC originally offered her 20 million and she declined.
They threw 5 million more at her and a 5 year contract and WHAT DO YA KNOW she’s IN! Sources are saying that Katy’s people knew she had most of the leverage. They wanted to announce the show, but didn’t have any judges lines up and knew they needed at least one so they had to rope in Katy if they wanted to make the announcement on time.
In OTHER Katy Perry news, she stated that it’s time for her feud with Taylor Swift to end. She said that Taylor started it and it’s time for her to end it. She apparently tried to speak with Taylor and Taylor wouldn’t have it.
Katy’s new song SWISH SWISH is apparently about her and Taylor’s fight in response to Taylor’s BAD BLOOD. “What I want to say is that I’m ready for that BS to be done . . . I think personally that women together, not divided, and none of this petty bull[crap], women together will heal the world.”
