Conor McGregor is going to play a pirate on Game of Thrones... It's the Dredge

Arrr! All the day’s celebrity dirt.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt from the top to the very bottom.

Well, it seems to be true: Conor McGregor will make an appearance on the next season of Game of Thrones.

UFC president Dana White appeared to confirm McGregor’s involvement on Fox Sports, saying he knew a few months ago that the showrunners were “interested” in giving him a cameo.

GoT fansite Watchers On The Wall also published a few details on his alleged role, gleaned from a source of theirs:

Conor McGregor will be playing a pirate belonging to Euron Greyjoy’s crew on the ship Silence. The part is a fairly small one, a cameo, so fans who are worried about his acting ability, don’t sweat it.

We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled. (Watchers On The Wall)

Jonathan Cheban (him, you know him, with the face) says rumours that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are divorcing are ‘hysterical’.

Kim’s bestie (you should definitely read this mental interview with him. Just do it) says that despite the fresh wave of divorce rumours from last night, the pair are in “good spirits” and think the whole thing is pretty funny.

I do have to say that the divorcing thing is kind of hysterical, because I just spoke to both of them on FaceTime and when I heard that I burst out laughing.

Oh thank GOD. We couldn’t face another tragedy in 2016. (E! News)

Rihanna has asked her fans to stop pitting her against Beyoncé and be happy for her eight Grammy nominations. C’mon guys!

Yesterday, the pot was stirred after Rihanna liked an Instagram post saying she was ‘snubbed’ for the Grammys in favour of Beyoncé and Lemonade.

After the post blew up, Rihanna herself waded into the comments to say she “never actually read the caption” just enjoyed the funny pic and moved on:

This is just unnecessary! I wish y’all would drop this topic and see things from the bigger picture! We don’t need to be putting black women against each other. We deserve to be celebrated, and the Grammy Academy agrees!

And she doesn’t believe she was snubbed, either: “Eight nominations later! God is great!” (tumblr)
